A knock resounded through the silent house in the middle of the night.
" who the devil is hear this late at night." Said Kagome groggily. Inuyasha
sat up in bed and sniffed the air. A low growl escaped his throat.
" It's a youkai. Stay here." Kagome nodded as Inuyasha grabbed the
tetsusaiga and walked out of the room.
With tetsusaiga drawn Inuyasha pulled back the curtain that covered the
front door. Standing out side his door was a old Inu youkai.
" Can I help you."
The old Inu youkai turned to Inuyasha.
" are you Inuyasha, the son of Inutoshi, the brother of Lord Sesshomaru."
Inuyasha nodded wondering where this was going.
" I am Kercheck, one of your Lord Sesshomaru's generals. I have been sent
for three reasons."
Inuyasha raised and eyebrow and gripped the tetsusaiga harder.
" What were you sent for."
" Where is the god tree."
Inuyasha was generally confused.
" The god tree."
Kercheck nodded. " yes I am instructed to go to the god tree."
Inuyasha nodded though still confused.
" The second I was instructed to escort you and your mate to the palace of
the western lands where you are take over rule of the western lands."
Inuyasha's jaw hit the ground at that statement.
" I'm what."
Kagome had come to stand beside her mate.
" What is going on, Inuyasha."
" Forgive me my lady, my lord you are to take over rule of the western
" Why what happened to Sesshomaru?"
Kercheck ignored his question and continued on
" The final reason I was brought here was I have something for you. He
asked us to bring him to you."
Kercheck motion for one of the other youkai to bring something forward.
Inuyasha felt Kagome grip onto his upper arm at the same time he felt his
heart stop. The one youkai was bringing over a bundle dressed in green
clothes and covered with blood. The smell of death was heavy in the air as
the youkai laid the figure on the ground.
Kagome broke from Inuyasha and collapsed down next to the unmoving figure
of her son. Tears pored from her eyes and she touched him. He was like ice.
She collapsed onto her son's body crying her eyes out.
With a roar Inuyasha turned to Kercheck and grabbed him by the throat. His
claws dug in causing blood to trickle down Kercheck's throat.
" What the hell did you do to him."
" I did nothing to him, he died from the injuries your brother caused him."
Inuyasha let got of Kercheck; his eyes were blank as he went to kneel next
to Draco's body. Tears started to fall down his cheeks.
" I'm going to kill.I'm going to kill that son of a bitch."
" I'm afraid that isn't possible."
Inuyasha let out a feral growl.
" Why not." His voice was low and dangerous.
" This is why." The youkai that had brought out Draco's body laid another
down not far from Draco. It was Sesshomaru.
Inuyasha stared with wide eyes, as another body was brought out and laid
down next to Sesshomaru's, it was Shinta.
" what happened?"
Kagome managed to stop sobbing for a minute to look over the three bodies.
" Your son and Shinta were part of a thieving group run by a Youko Kitsune,
Shinta was the leader, I believe he was called night crawler."
Kagome and Inuyasha looked up startled.
" Shinta was the famous night crawler."
" They were going to steal both of Lord Sesshomaru's swords, when he got
wind of the upcoming attacks. He attacked the minute the group got into the
palace; you son was the only one that put up a fight against Lord
Sesshomaru. Shinta got there just in time to keep Sesshomaru from killing
Draco. But Shinta was killed in the processes. Sesshomaru was so devastated
that he had killed his own child that he ordered, his mate from the western
lands and committed suicide, he cut out his own heart. Draco was the one
that requested that you take over the western lands, and that all three of
them be laid to rest bellow the god tree."
Kagome returned to her crying fit. Inuyasha stood and started to walk away.
" My Lord?"
" The god tree is this way."
Inuyasha laid the last of the flowers on the graves. Rain pattered around
him softly. Behind him stood his three children. It had been many years
since his brother, Shinta, and his son Draco had been killed and he had
become lord of the western lands. And now next to them laid his only love,
Kagome had passes on some years ok. Dying from the curse that plagued all
humans, mortality. Before the left she had given him three beautiful sons,
all of which were named after the three that had left this earth so many
years ago. His boys born so long ago were only now reaching their teen-age
years. Each one looked exactly and acted exactly like the ones for who they
were names after.
" father we should go, you have that meeting with the Lord of the Northern
Inuyasha stood after saying one final good bye to his loved ones.
" come on Draco, Shinta, Sesshomaru, lets go home."
THE END....or is it..
