Chapter 226: True
Kohaku told her how the Shikon-no-Tama had tried to twist their hopes into a curse, linking them like the Four Souls, perhaps forever.
“Is it true?”
“You know it is. I am curious why.”
Kagome couldn’t see any drawback to confiding. Not personally. “Erm… Sesshoumaru-sama might not like it.”
“How you know? Or that I will know?”
“I don’t know.” She laughed a little over the muddle.
“Just show me. I may catch on. That happens a lot lately.”
“Since the wish?”
“Yes. I am part of the answer.” Kohaku seemed glad to add, “I am part of your future.”
