Sesshomaru had always wondered why humans were so curious. Now he had his answer. Humans were short-lived, lucky if they got to one hundred years, maybe even fifty. He had endless chances to do whatever he pleased. Humans did not have the time to sit back and watch as their questions were answered, so they had acquired the trait of being curious.

The taiyoukai watched Rin as she ran through flowers, laughing. Sesshomaru allowed this human endless chances of joy.

He would have thousands of chances. They would have less than one hundred.

Nine thousand chances for a lucky child.
