Illusions Within : 1
Disclaimer: I don't own Inuyasha, it belongs to Rumiko Takahashi. I'm just
using her characters to make this simple fic for fun!
"Inuyasha!!!" A shrill voice of a girl caught the young hanyou's
attention. He was bleeding heavily, countless drops of blood stained the
ground as he inched backwards away from the deadly monster he was facing.
The youkai, taking a shape of a huge bear, had a fierce, wrinkled face with
poisonous fangs that surfaced outside its mouth. Its claws were washed with
blood--Inuyasha's blood. The monster then raised its hand for its final
blow against Inuyasha.
Suddenly, an oversized boomerang flew from the trees' branches and
cut the monster's hand. It made a very eerie groan then out of rage; it
flashed a beam on the boomerang. Kagome took the youkai's moment of pain to
hit it with several arrows, but it was useless. Before she could react, the
monster was already preparing another beam from its mouth on Kagome's
direction. In half a second, it unleashed its beam towards the shocked
girl...only to realize that someone was trying to shield her from the
youkai's powerful energy.
Inuyasha's blood spilled on the forest floor as he held his
enormous Tetsusaiga against the monster's attack, in order to protect
"Run away now, you idiot! You should've left this monster to deal with me!
The black-haired girl was startled for the moment, and then quickly
followed Inuyasha's words. She dashed through the woods to get away as soon
as possible, but she felt a deep concern for him. She wanted to go back to
support him--even though she knew that using only her bow and arrow are
useless--but he did that to protect her, and she doesn't want to waste he
efforts. She was just a hundred meters away when she looked back.
Inuyasha's feet were sliding backwards against the soil. He was
losing strength, considering that he was badly wounded and bleeding, added
the heaviness of his Tetsusaiga, and the forceful beam of the monster.
Sango came running to the youkai with sharp weapons stuck between her
fingers, but she too was hurt, so the youkai's other hand easily caught
her. Miroku then came rushing from the woods, catching his breath. Beads on
his right hand started dangling while preparing his kazaana.
Inuyasha's eyes were drooping...his vision was blurring...his arms
were weakening. Slowly he loses his strength, his power.
Kagome raced back to him screaming.
The Tetsusaiga transformed into an old sword again as it flipped
in the air and then stuck its blade on the ground. Inuyasha was pushed away
the moment he lost consciousness. Before that, he saw nothing, felt
nothing, and heard nothing. Except for a familiar voice crying out his

A voice was ringing in his ear. It sounded like it was from afar.
"Inuyasha?" Now this voice seemed like whispering in his ears. Her voice
was just near.
He slowly opened his eyes and saw a beautigul girl looking at him.
The black-haried girl wore a slight disappointment on her face. Inuyasha
sat up and realized that he was sitting beside her. He looked at her for a
while, then his eyes widened.
She replied with a warm smile. Inuyasha put his hand on her cheek, trying
to prove that she's really there. He then smiled back at her without any
Later on he looked around. There was the cool breeze coming from
the wind that passes through the forest; the vivid birds flying across the
clear blue sky; and a very familiar-looking village lying on the plains
below the grassy hill where they sat. He turned to look at Kikyo.
"We must protect it. Especially the Shikon No Tama," she said. Inuyasha
stood up and set his eyes on the village. "What is this?" he whispered. "Am
I back fifty years ago?"
Kikyo held his hand. "Don't worry. The jewel is doing fine." The hanyou sat
once again with a suspicion on his face.
"You made a promise, right?"
"Promise..." He thought for a while and tried to bring back the events from
half a century ago while staring straight at Kikyo's mellow eyes. "..that
I'll wish to be a full human...," he involuntarily spoke. She glanced on
the grass and said, "Tomorrow, under that tree."
Kikyo stood up and took several steps down the hill then looked up at
"I'll be going back to the village now. Take care." With that, she picked
her bow and headed to her destination.
Left alone, Inuyasha decided to roam the forest for the meantime.
He thought that he's probably just dreaming things. Or is he?
