Author's Note: I really wanted to write this down, this story wouldn't leave my brain……so enjoy! Also it either will be Sess/Kag or Kur/Kag or even Sess/Kag/Kur (I haven't decided…..)

Chapter 1: The Festival
A slender hand cupped the cherry blossoms as the lavender ointment was poured onto the blossoms. Kagome kneeled on the soft grass letting the cherry blossoms soak in the ointment as the sweet scent enveloped her senses. Carefully Kagome position the petals on the dew covered grass in 4 different directions North, South, East, and West. She traced the ancient words that were engraved in the outer ring on the mirror as she placed it in between the rosy pink petals. Her melodious voice whispered the incantation that Keade taught her for this proper spell to work. A small bundle of blue fire bloomed on the mirror as her voice dropped an octave coaxing the fire to grow. The blue flame splashed at her kimono sleeve as any exposed skin was tingling madly from the magic. The azure flame turned into a translucent barrier, spreading all around as far as the eye could see.
Kagome eyes turned to the lavender moon that hung in the night sky as its slender beam of moonlight framed her body. She wiped the coat of sweat that coated her face as she made her way to the village. Her skin rippled in delight as the cool night breeze coiled around her face. Kagome's dark blue obi fluttered around her as the merriment of the villagers reached her ear.
The village was decorated in a variety of flowers and ribbons as she made her way to the outskirts of the small village to Keade's hut. Kagome's pushed as few strands of her raven hair behind an ear as she entered the quaint hut.
"Did ye make the barrier?" Keade asked as Kagome sat graciously back on top of her heels. The crackle of the fire filled the small hut as Kagome fingered the hem of her kimono sleeves.
"Yes, Keade obachan." Kagome said. The wrinkled skin hung heavily around Keade's eye as she regarded Kagome. She poured green tea in a wooden cup for Kagome who gratefully sipped it.
"We must not have any demons interrupt the festival." Keade said gravely as the hot embers of the fire jumped onto the wooden floor. Kagome had heard Keade's speeches many times before, so she let her raven black hair fall around her face to create a curtain as her eyes drooped in exhaustion.
A wooden spoon hit her head as she glared towards Keade.
"What was that for?" Kagome said as she probed the sore spot.
"You'll live." Keade said simply ignoring Kagome's heated glare.
"The Autumn rose moon festival is very important." Said Kaede as she adjusted her eye patch.
"The festival comes only a few 50 years when the moon turns lavender……very much the color of your eyes Kagome." Kead said lovingly pinching Kagome's cheek. Kagome rubbed her cheek as her lavender eyes blinked the sleep away.
"This festival celebrates the sacred Kitsunes that are said to be extinct……the lavender moon is the work of the celestial kitsune that mourns for her brothers and sisters that humans have killed. This festival is in respect to the kitsunes…..hoping that we aren't cursed by the faery foxes." Kagome discreetly rolled her eyes as a mental image of a fox with butterfly wings popped into her head.
"Kitsunes were never real. This is just a load of superstition and just faery tales." Kagome said quietly as she crossed her arms. The evil wooden spoon once again hit her head as Keade just wagged her finger in a scolding manner.
"Really Kagome, if you believe in demons I find that hard to believe that you don't believe in kitsunes." Keade said matter-of-factly.
"I even think that you have a little of fox faery blood in you." Keade said as she looked deeply into Kagome's lavender eyes.
"Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight." Kagome said as she traced the silver sakura petals that decorated her kimono. If she was told that at a young age she would have jumped for joy. The tales that Kaede had told her when she was a child always had her outside looking for kitsunes to be her friend, she even had dreamed about marrying a kitsune………of course these thoughts had been when she was younger and when she was a tad bit dumber. Kagome decided that she needed to get a bit of fresh air or even visit her friend Sango.
An image of a young man with blood red hair showed up on the river like mirror as the tiny ripples of the water distorted the beautiful image.
"P- Kurama what are we doing here?" A small child said with a green bow tied in his head.
'I almost said papa…' Shippo thought as he turned innocent blue/green eyes towards the crimson haired man.
"Don't you feel it Shippo? Almost like a small tug…" Kurama said as he scooped up some water to drink. His emerald eyes turned into an eerie gold that shone brightly in the vague darkness. Kurama turned to the small kit as Shippo jumped onto Kurama's shoulder, smelling the scent of roses as he inhaled.
A small mist surrounded Kurama as his crimson hair turned silver and his human ears migrated to the top of his head to turn into fox ears. Cold gold eyes regarded the lavender moon as the small kit held onto his neck as he sped into the small forest.
"Kurama or Youko, whoever! There are humans I smell them! We can't go there, what if they kill us!" Shippo said as he held on for dear life almost cutting off circulation in Youko's neck.
"As if humans can harm me." Youko said coldly as he tried to loosen Shippo's hold on his neck.
"Okay then…..Then what about me! They'll kill me! I'm just a kid!" Shippo whimpered into Youko's ear.
"What have I been doing for the last year?" Youko asked as he jumped onto a tree branch for more speed. There was a small pause before Shippo's meek voice broke the solitude.
"You've been protecting me?" Shippo guessed as he opted towards digging his nails in Youko's shoulder so that he wouldn't fall off the older kitsune's shoulder. A blur of silver flashed in the night as he sped towards the village where this persistant tug was leading him towards. What he didn't know was there was another demon going towards the village.
