Chikage inwardly groaned, walking upstairs to the bedroom she shared with Kaito. She couldn't decide if she was more frustrated with Mouri Kogoro or Yuusaku. What had she gotten herself into?
Chikage actually began to wonder if Kaito staying with the Kudos was the wisest choice. Something like this wouldn't have happened if they were in Ekoda and in their own house, but she wasn't sure if she was ready to admit she might have made a mistake. After all, her primary intentions for Kaito coming to the Kudo household was for it to act as a refuge against Sharon.
But Sharon was already here.
Since her release from the hospital, Chikage had been putting up a front and behaving like she was fine. Her body ached as she walked upstairs, longing to just flop right on that bed after chatting with Yukiko and Aoko. When she entered the room, she did something similar: she lied down on the bed without even bothering so much as to change into pajamas or close the door.
