Chapter 295: Driven
The hunting lesson posed no real challenge. A child could capture roosting fowl. It occurred to Sesshoumaru that his brother had likely been a child when he developed the technique, driven by necessity and neglect.

Sesshoumaru stilled as the first gossamer touch of Kagome’s return reached him. She was back, and her thoughts were for him. He was already in motion, flying like an arrow to its mark.
