Sesshoumaru's fingers paused momentarily in their abuse of the arm of his chair. Quickly coming back to himself, he began again to drum his claws against the polished wood. For the most part, he could ignore the Christmas festivities that Kagome had forced him to endure.
This he could not.
Crunch crunch crunch.
Clenching his jaw to bite back a scathing remark, he glared at the back of Kagome's dark head as she bent over the coffee table in the middle of the room. Perhaps he could distract her from this folly somehow. If she continued much longer, the arm of the chair he sat in would have a permanent set of gouges.

With a savage growl, Sesshoumaru crossed the room in mere moments, poison at his fingertips.
She was holding the bowl.
Minx! Sesshoumaru thought, attempting to control his breathing and regain some semblance of control.
Mischief sparkled in Kagome's eyes as she offered the bowl to him.
"Did you want a pistachio?"
Later, Sesshoumaru would admit that melting the entire bowl might have been rash.
