Kagome waited for the pup finishing his lessons, she didn’t mind waiting, it gave her time to think. The dream she had last night, her falling in love with the demon she wasn’t suppose to have. Holding her close, admiring his little garden, the one thing that was beautiful about this place, was the beautiful flowers that were grown here. The sunlight warming her body, she calmed herself, she couldn’t help, but smile. She sniffed the air for a minute, smelling the intoxication smell she learn to love. Never even looking back, she stood up straight from her back and pulled her legs close to her chest. Looking over with the corner of her eyes, she saw white hakama, before feeling his tail nudge against her. She wondered why would be want to see her, or was usually the other way around. Was it because of last night, her fighting with him about the pup? Or was it something else?
“Stand.” he ordered. Kagome didn’t want to, she was perfectly fine where she was at.
“No, sit.” Patting her hand on the ground, Sesshomaru just looked at her. Kagome knew he wouldn’t do it. Yet to her surprise the lord sat down next to her, his tail wrapped around her, pulling her closer to his shoulder. Kagome blush a little, looking down at the flowers.
“Something concerns me, miko.”
“Would you at least try to say my name? Its not hard, see Ka-go-me. Say it.” he frowned at her, he wasn’t in the mood for another fit over something ridiculous.
“Figures.” she groan, trailing her eyes up to the sky, pretty blues with white clouds bouncing off each other. She remembered touching one, nothing but air, feeling a small nudge from his tail, she knew he meant business.
“You know that one some times the hanyou will be a human for one night. The pup’s is tonight, I need you to let me handle him when it happens.” Kagome turned her head staring at him, she wasn’t going to let her pup do it alone.
“Why cant I be there with him? I have every right to-”
“Miko, do not disrespect for what I have for the pup.” he pointed a finger at her, making sure she understood. Unfortunally for Kagome she swatted her hand against his finger, poking her finger on his chest with anger.
“Like I give a damn, Inuyasha needs a mother to comfort the pup. He isn’t like you, Mr. Cold Hearted Bastard.” She blink a few times, she didn’t mean to say that out loud. Nervously looking over at the demon, his eyes bleed red, trying to move away from him, his tail held onto her tightly. Her body was wrapped around his tail, pinning herself against the ground, his body pressed against her, before grabbing both of her hands pinning them above her head. Kagome was faced with his beast. Sesshomaru tried so hard to work with the miko, but she pushed him too far, snapping his jaw at her, he dig his claws into her wrists, blood seeping through. Kagome whimpered, she held herself from releasing her demon form.
“Stop. I’m so-so-so-so-sorry. I didn-” her words were caught off when he placed leaned down and placing his fangs over her neck, tempting not to sink his teeth into her. She was scared for once, her human form, shaking. Her miko powers didn’t glow, this wasn’t right.
“Submit!”</i> hearing his beast growling, she surrender herself. Tilting her head to the side, leaving her neck expose. Sesshomaru leaned down and licked her neck, she knew what it meant, she listened to his beast. “Good miko.”
“Hn.” A few tears slip down her face, she didn’t want to look at him. Closing her eyes for a minute, she felt herself being pulled up and was placed on his lap. Kagome opened his eyes, seeing him licking her hands. Tasting her blood, she bit her lip for a second, his eyes changing back to his amber ones. He went to the other hand, giving it the same treatment,
“I’m sorry, Lord Sesshomaru.” bowing her head to him. Sesshomaru saw this side of her, letting go of her hand. He wrapped his arm around the miko, smelling her, he scented forgiveness, calm and worry. He cursed at himself, for letting something so silly almost hurt the mother of the pup. Kagome leaned against his chest, finding it so hard to believe he was letting her do this. “Tell me the reason on why I cant be with the pup.” Sesshomaru nodded.
“His is painful when changing, it only happens on the night of the new moon. This Sesshomaru will help him, so he can do it without having the pain affect him.” Kagome didn’t know the pup was hurting when he changing, she felt bad for a minute.
“Still I want to help.” Sesshomaru understood, yet he still didn’t want her being there.
“For the pup’s sake, you can go to him when he’s change.” She nodded, not getting her way this time. She heard a small voice echoing in the wind, turning her head over seeing the pup running up to her. She realize what she was sitting on, Sesshomaru let go of the miko, setting her down on the ground. Getting up from his spot, he reached his hand out and caressed the pups cheek when he reached to him. “Be good pup.” leaving a small smile for the pup to see. Inuyasha gave him an opened mouth smile while hugging his brothers leg, Sesshomaru patted the pup’s head and started walking away. Kagome watch the two of them, she loved seeing the lord caring for the pup, even if he was different than him. Inuyasha ran up to his mother, he sat down besides her and smile brightly at her.
“I learn a lot of things today mother.” he was so over joy with learning, she couldn’t help but smile at the pup. She reached her hand out and rubbed the back of his ears, he purred under her touch still raising an eyebrow on why the pup would purr, he wasn’t a cat.
“What did you learn?” she asked while returning her hand back to her side. Inuyasha jumped from his spot, telling her the history of his family. How to speak, how to walk, anything they taught him. The one thing she caught him saying was his father,
“Lord Inu no Taisho, my father was the Great Dog General of the West. Everyone feared him, bowed to him, he was the greatest of all. He had a mate named Lady Sayuri, she is a pure Inu demoness who no one dared to question her, she is my stepmother. Her and my father had an heir to the west, which is my big brother.” he said with a smile, Kagome heard of them, in truth she already met them. “Even though the family was the perfect one, there was still one problem to that, a war was happening and my father had to do something. Leaving his mate and his son, he battled the demon named, Ryukotsusei. A dragon demon everyone feared, but my father wanted him dead.” she remember so well, her father was there with him helping. All she knows was that the dog general was injured and a human healed him back to health. Her eyes widen for a minute, before looking down at the pup.
“Inuyasha, is this part where your father met your mother?” he nodded, feeling happy and sad at the same time.
“Yeah, but they don’t know that part. They said my father was a fool for loving a human and gave birth to me. Still I don’t care what they think, I loved my mother. Human or not.” he said proudly. Sitting down in her mothers lap, Kagome brushed her fingers through his silver shiny hair, such softness she adored so much.
“Your mother would be so proud of you, Inuyasha.”
“She would be, still I wish I met father, big brother got to see him.” she smelled the sadness coming from the pup. An idea got to her head, moving her hand to his chin, she turned him making him look at her.
“Why don’t you ask Sesshomaru about your father? After all, he knows more about him.” giving him a smile. Inuyasha smile widen,
“You’re right, but would he tell me?” he asked curiously. Kagome leaned down and kissed her forehead while rubbing his back to let him know he was alright.
“Of course. If not I will give him a piece of my mind.”
“Be careful, the last incident would not be the last.”
“I know, my human disguise nearly slip from me.” Kagome looked up seeing the clouds darken. Picking up the pup in her arms, she stood up and started walking back to the castle.
“Mother, can I see your demon form, I really like it..” giving her the puppy dogs eye and pressing his lips together making him the cutest thing ever. Kagome shook her head, still urge herself for not showing it.
“Tomorrow?” he asked. Kagome knew she couldn’t, yet no one was around. Sniffing the air, she didn’t sense anyone. Kagome closed her focusing on her energy, she left go of her demon form. Hair becoming longer, stripes showing, ears becoming pointed, her cherry blossom mark appeared in the middle of her forehead, her white tail wrapped around the pups body, causing him to giggle as it tickled him. She opened her eyes, staring down at the pups eyes, amber color, just like the lords.
“Yeah, your so pretty Mother. I know you have to hide yourself, but I like it when you are a demon. I don’t know why, but I feel something like you should be who you are and not hide it.” With such words coming from the pup, she knew why she would hide herself, yet looking at the pup she was thinking about what he said.
“The pup is right, you aren’t happy being in that disguise. You were so much free as a demon.”
“I know, yet my father would take me back and punish me for escaping. I…I…just…” Tears stream down her face, sniffling and trying to hard to calm herself, Inuyasha reached his hand out touched both her cheeks. Wiping the tears away from her face, she stared at the pup, he leaned in and kissed her cheeks. Kagome smile a little, before nuzzling her nose against his and kissed his forehead.
“You always make me feel better, pup.” Inuyasha smiled and wrapped his arms around her neck, laying his head against her chest. The smell of rain began to fall, Kagome transform back to her human form walking in as the rain dripped down.
Kagome waited outside the pups room, she wanted to be there for him, but of course she had to listen to the lord. Holding herself close, she waited for him. Inside, Sesshomaru watched the pup, shaking and frightening, he could smell the salty tears begging to come out. Inuyasha held himself, trying so hard not to disappoint his brother. Sesshomaru saw the fear in his little brother eyes, he walked up to him, reaching his hand out. Inuyasha jumped into his arms, clinging onto him.
“Calm yourself, pup. Focus on the energy. Let it flow.” Inuyasha leak tears down his face, the pain was flowing through his body. Changing himself. Sesshomaru looked down at the pup, his hair changing from silver to black.
“It…hurts, big brother..” his puppy ears were gone, human ears appeared.
“Breath, pup. Focus.” he tried so hard, he whimpered in pain. Howling, making Sesshomaru’s ears hurt a bit. He looked down at the pup, calming himself. It was over, he was human. Inuyasha looked up at his big brother, those eyes of him were dark brown. Staring at the pup, Inuyasha was a bit afraid for what his brother would think. Sesshomaru held him close into a protective hug.
“How did you feel?”
“A lot better, thanks to you.” giving him a smile, Sesshomaru gave him a small smile for the pup. “Can Mother see me now? I can sense she’s worry.” He nodded to the pup, yet when the pup left him. He smelled that same scent of the demon, he would ask questions later to the pup, for now. He needed her, opening the door seeing his mother worrying, Kagome looked up at him, seeing the pup before her. Long black hair where his silver hair used to be, his puppy ears gone, but human ears appeared, but what really caught her eye was his eyes, dark brown she seems to love the most.
“Do you still love me? Even with the way I look now…” Kagome stared at the pups, dark brown eyes, she smiled at him opening her arms to him. Inuyasha smiled at her, running, into her arms, she cling onto her kimono. Kagome rubbed his back, still smiling at her pup.
“Inuyasha, like I said when we first met. I love anyone demon or human, even both. You’re my pup, I wont let anything happen to you.” Feeling the warmth around her pup, she enjoy this feeling inside of her. Kagome looked up at Sesshomaru, causing her to give me a warm smile, Sesshomaru on the other hand only nodded to her, before leaving.
“Big brother. Big brother!!” running down the halls, his mother was still sleeping so he couldn’t wake her up. Sesshomaru could hear his brother down the hall, he went back to working on his documents, still the thought came to him, when he smelled salty tears. Realizing it was important, he set his work on his desk and headed out of his study.
“Why would you run around in the halls? A filthy hanyou like you should be killed, not worthy of being the prince of the west.” Inuyasha was back up against the wall, the demoness sharpening her claws, before flicking her wrist.
“Big brother loves me, I am not worthless.” he said to her, the demoness just chuckle to herself, before walking forward to the pup. His barrier came up, but was broken when she slice her claws at it.
“Foolish pup, my power can break any barrier. I wonder if the lord really does care for such trash like you.” Inuyasha wasn’t going to stand for this, flicking his wrist, the demoness froze in her spot. “No this cannot be! You’re only a hanyou!” fast as the pup was he slice the demoness in her neck, blood tickled down her throat as her eyes went white. Dropping on the floor, Inuyasha chuckled.
“No more, nice lady.”
“Inuyasha!” the pup looked over seeing his big brother, Sesshomaru gazed at him as his eyes widen. Shot red eyes came from the pup, blue around the iris. Jagged blue marks on each side of his cheeks, but most importantly he saw blood dripping from the pups fingers. Inuyasha chuckled, while licking the demoness blood from his fingers.
“She was mean to me, big brother.” chuckling like he was not himself. Sesshomaru moved closer to him. The pup moved forward, “I had to kill her.”
“You are not my brother.” he growled at the demon that was in control of his brother.
“I am, a full demon just like you wanted me to be.”
“No. This Sesshomaru would rather have the pup he was born with.” he notice his eyes flickering back to amber, the pup held himself, before screaming in pain. Sesshomaru ran to the pup, holding him close. He tried to move away. His scent was changing,
“Pup return to yourself.” Inuyasha looked up at his brother, his scent change back to his old self. Sesshomaru held him close, not making the pup look at the dead body that was on the floor. Inuyasha smelled blood, he froze to himself, looking down at his hands.
“Shh, I’m here. Big brother got you.” calming the pup, Inuyasha eyes widen, he called him brother. Looking up at him, Sesshomaru walked out of the hall.
“You said brother…do you love me, Sesshomaru?” Sesshomaru held him tightly, glaring at any of the demons or anyone. Once they saw that look, they knew not to mess with the pup. Inuyasha snuggled against him, just waiting for his answer, once he reached his study, he shut the door behind him, sitting down on some fur pelts.
“I do, little brother.” placing his chin on top of the pups head, Inuyasha shivered remembering what happened.
“Sesshomaru…I don’t want to be that person…too mean and scary.”
“I will have to figure out what cause you to change.”
“Demon blood ran through his veins. Self defense.”
“Though he is just a pup, why would the demon blood kick in all of sudden?”
“That we don’t know. I do not know, Sesshomaru.”
“We shall start training the pup sooner than expected. If the demon does come back, I don’t want him hurting the ones he love. Especially his mother.” Truth be told, he was growing rather fond of the miko being around his brother. Than again he couldn’t stop thinking about her, she was a strange creature.
“Sesshomaru can you tell me about father?” he asked, wanting to change the subject. Sesshomaru looked down at the pup, seeing his amber eyes sparkling.
“You were already told this in your lessons-”
“I mean in your point of view…I never knew father like you did. You were lucky to even speak to him.” The feeling the pup was having was causing Sesshomaru to not talk about. He never like this father, at times he did, but before he mated with a human that changed. The last thing he could remember his father said to him, it was still fresh in his mind, closing his eyes, he whispered.
“Do you have someone to protect…”
“Huh?” he wondered, before the lord opened his eyes.
“That was the last thing, father said to me.”
