Chapter 232: Expectant

Inuyasha and Kohaku hunted well, and Kagome helped prepare a meal. Throughout spitting and roasting, Inuyasha’s eyes were bright, his smirk firmly in place, and Sesshoumaru’s stripes ranged through a myriad of upbeat colors.

Yellows, blues, pinks—everyone pulled him in slightly different directions.

Which made Kagome wonder about her own influence. Was it all right to try? But… try what?

What do I want from him?

Sesshoumaru suddenly met her gaze, and … oh. He was pink for her.

Inuyasha asked, “Will he do it?”

What had she missed? Because all three of them were looking expectantly… at Shishi.
