Chapter 223: Lucky
“The villagers …?”
Inuyasha seemed startled. “Safe. And maybe a little surprised about that. I guess our offer seemed too good to be true.”
“They expected treachery, yet walked into the trap?”
“They were desperate and took a risk.” Inuyasha smirked sadly. “They’re lucky it was us.”
“There is no trouble?”
“Nope.” His brother looked away.
“Why did you come?”
Inuyasha’s ears pricked and dipped. “Just the usual.”
“Keh. Does this protection thing work both ways? It’s almost time.”
So that was it. A few days here and a few days there had added up. “The new moon.”
