Mood Stripes 218: Taken

Disclaimer: I do hereby disclaim all rights and responsibilities for the characters in this audacious adventure… especially for the one who knows what it’s like to have nothing. A nod of recognition is bent towards Rumiko Takahashi for her creative prowess.

Chapter 218: Taken

She was sleeping with Sesshoumaru. Kohaku was, too, but… the way Sesshoumaru pulled Kagome close felt like… like a push.

Inuyasha stepped back.

Had the Jewel taken something after all? Taken what was too good for a scapegrace mongrel. Given it to the perfect brother who… had nothing.

Aw, hell.

Crossing to the grave he’d helped dig, Inuyasha tried to straighten out his thinking.

“Stay with her.”

Inuyasha glanced back as Kohaku rolled into the gap Sesshoumaru left. Then there were arms around his shoulders. Weight to bend his back.

“Keh. You don’t need me carrying you.”

“Hnn. I disagree.”
