A/N Yup, here I am again! :d I hope you enjoyed the last chapter and this chapter too! Thanks so much for reading! It means a lot to me.
Dressed, preened at, pinched, painted, and finally, layers and layers, almost suffocating her, she was ready to travel in an elaborate kimono.
Though her foul mood seemed opposite of the General's easy smile, exuberant attitude and eagerness to arrive at the west, Kimi was not happy. Perhaps there was this slight anticipation to arrive and find out how the General was raised considering his terrible manners, especially concerning boundaries for females, entering their rooms without even bothering to inform them of such a thing.
Touga turned and cast his famous charming smile upon her, fangs glinting in the sun. He knew that she was particularly unhappy with leaving, that and about the four maids tending to her early that morning, her mother sending two as well. She had been through quite the ordeal and the daiyoukai briefly wondered whether she would be comfortable in her clothing. It didn't seem likely.
Glancing at Inukimi, Touga noted that she pouted childishly as her family appeared, her sisters casting her jealous glances, her mother looking down at her with a cold expression, and her father…
Her father, Inuharu, straightened his back and stared down at then nonchalantly. Though Touga was accustomed to this, having served under him for several years, he had seen this expression one-too-many times. But it was fake, a façade, a lie; he could see the swimming of emotions whirling in the lord's eyes. Perhaps the cause was he would be alone, no one but his concubines to keep him company, the silly older daughters, and the jealous scheming wife.
Perhaps he would miss his daughter.
Touga observed the thin line her lips were set in; her brief, almost empty smile as she bid her family goodbye. Raising an eyebrow, for a moment Touga wondered how she would react when seeing his own mother, or how his mother would react to seeing a mate instead of a whore.
His hackles rose at the thought.
Kimi turned to him silently, eyes questioning, fierce, and almost…pleading?
He turned, bowing to his old master. They soon left for the house of the west, both apprehensive, both curious, and both naïve of the fact how drastically their lives were about to change.
The young youkai shifted uneasily on her feet, wondering why the maids thought it was necessary to dress her in such ridiculous outfits. Her skin was slick with sweat, the sweltering heat nearly draining her energy as she lugged herself behind the Inu no Taisho. He, however, seemed perfectly fine. His hair was pulled back in the usual low-ponytail, swishing in the breeze, his forehead devoid of any perspiration. He even had this light, pleased smile on his face, and no matter how irritating it was to think he was perfectly fine with the weather condition, she couldn't help but admire his confident strides.
Suddenly he stopped, frowned, and shockingly, slapped his neck.
The General growled angrily, "Myouga, what do you think you are doing here?" Despite herself she hurried forward, curious as to who he was talking to. He lowered his hand to her eye level, surprising her when she saw a flea youkai.
She smiled, "Aww, it's so cute." Kimi said.
The flea bowed to her, and said happily, "Oh, it's the young lady. It's nice to finally meet my master's mate." Myouga said, surprised when she frowned at him, disliking the new title.
Touga reached down and squeezed him between his fingers, growling, "Why are you here?"
A bead of sweat appeared on the flea's brow, he murmured a soft apology, "I am sorry, Master, I have been waiting for a chance to meet the lovely hime," he paused slightly to glance at the female, who was looking at him dispassionately, "Forgive me," he bowed.
The Inu no Taisho raised a disbelieving eyebrow and mumbled, "Do as you please," before continuing to walk.
The flea smiled and hopped on the female's shoulder, smiling up at her.
A/N Yeah, Myouga is such a weird one but I like him. Thanks so much for all of you who are reading! The next chapter should be up soon!
