You read right. There is a new chapter of Journey completed and in the hands of my beta. Two, actually, but we'll post them a week apart. Sesshomaru was fairly busy (and fairly lazy depending which chapter we're looking at), so I'm hoping everyone will be satisfied. I enjoyed writing these two chapters and am eager to share them with you.
I suppose since I haven't posted in so long I CAN supply a small, tiny excerpt. Here:
Sesshomaru shook his head. He gently rubbed the bottom of her foot, working his way to the ankle. Rin leaned back, resting on her elbows, a pleased expression on her face. Slowly, the Demon Lord rubbed back towards her toes. Rin's eyes closed and she exhaled softly. She wiggled her toes, the gesture playful.
Sesshomaru laughed softly, quirking an eyebrow. Somehow, it seemed like a challenge. He recalled when Rin had attempted tickling him. It had perplexed him, but now with Rin teasing him, he seemed to understand, if only a little. He brushed a claw mischievously across the sole of her foot. He smirked when she squealed softly and tried to jerk her foot away.
Rin squirmed away, giggling wildly. “Sesshomaru-sama! That tickles!"
Sesshomaru smiled wryly. He held her foot in his lap, keeping her from pulling too far away. He flicked his claw again. “You mean, this, Rin?”
“Sesshomaru-sama!” Rin wiggled, laughing harder. She sat up, her dark hair framing her face. The little girl glared playfully at him and shook her head. “That's not very nice!”
Sesshomaru chuckled, gently tugging on her big toe. “That was not this Sesshomaru's intention."
That's all for now. I hope it'll appease you.
Until next time,
Far Away Eyes
