Chapter 794: Parting Words

Slipping through Kagome's window, Sesshoumaru interrupted her packing with a hand over her eyes.

She trembled beneath his touch.

"Where is your courage?"

"That?" Kagome laughed weakly. "I stuck it under my lifetime supply of toothbrushes."

"He is also nervous." Sesshoumaru stroked her hair. "You have yet to teach him that his wildness is welcome. Rewrite his saga, and he will sing over you."

"Sesshoumaru-sama." Kagome melted into his embrace. "Tattle on yourself one more time?"

With a kiss for her forehead, he said, "You will bring him to his knees the day you place our firstborn into his care."
