Chapter 464: Best Option

Sesshoumaru recognized the corner he was in. He couldn't stop his mother or the miko from fussing over Inuyasha. Setting himself against his brother could only end in defeat, so he quelled his annoyance. My options are few, but they are mine.

By taking charge of the hanyou, he would regain control … and exact a larger share of the females' approval. Sitting before Inuyasha, Sesshoumaru lifted a hand, wordlessly demanding his right as the pack's dominant male. The Western Lady lapsed into smiling silence, and he announced, "I will keep this simple. And use small words."

Inuyasha swore. Gratefully.
