Author's Note: This was originally done as a piece for the theme “Calling Miroku's Bluff,” but it didn't quite fit the parameters. I decided to inflict it upon the masses instead.
Start Talking
She came to him in her hour of need, and Miroku didn't have it in him to refuse her. He knew that she was using him, but he didn't mind. After all, his own heart had long ago been given to another, so this encounter would be nothing more than the scratching of an itch.
He accepted her advances and dealt with his conscience in the morning. After all, the tiny part of his soul that wasn't completely corrupt did feel some discomfort over the matter. True, she had been the one to initiate the contact, but Miroku couldn't help but remember that she was also Sango's closest friend.
The inevitable fall-out eventually arrived.
