“Because you’re the Four Souls. Somehow.” He edged closer, searching for confirmation other than Sesshoumaru’s conviction.

“It is the unavoidable conclusion. Although not cast in crystal, I am… trapped.”

“Keh. You looked pretty happy when I got here.”

“Hnn.” His brother’s gaze skittered sideways. “The connection is unusual. Influential. It is disquieting to be apart.”

“It’s bothering you now?”

Sesshoumaru seemed confused.

  2. I’ve been reading your fictional works for years but I’ve never had a account to comment with.
    I adore your works and they’ve been a large part of my life, getting me through hard or stressful times, older stories are a place of comfort and happiness.
    Thank you for still writing fan fiction 🙂
    Wishing you well 🙂
