AN: Sorry this has taken so long. Sesshoumaru wasn't cooperating with me. It seems he doesn't like others to know his thoughts, me included. I'm not sure how often Sesshoumaru's point of view will be in the story; we'll see I guess. I started off with summarizing certain parts of the first two chapters using Sesshoumaru's point of view. Hopefully it isn't too confusing.
Sesshoumaru tried to keep calm; normally it wasn't a problem. In fact, his control was something he took great pride in, but this one small female was driving him crazy. He was ready to let his baser instincts take over and paint the forest the same deep red his eyes were threatening to turn. He knew that this urge wasn't from a flaw in his character and thus it must be the result of a flaw in hers. Instead of giving into temptation he lowered himself to talking to her.
She was a weird human that not only didn't know when to keep her mouth closed but also couldn't control her emotions. When he brought her tendency, and inappropriate habit, to talk too much to her attention she didn't do as he commanded. She decided to take that as an invitation to talk even more and so Sesshoumaru removed himself from her presence. She was only amusing to a small degree and the very fact that he even considered her amusing was a sign that he needed to take his leave.
He was trying to ignore her. He truly was, but for some godforsaken reason she decided to follow him. He would have ignored that too as it was natural for females to follow him since he was, of course, Sesshoumaru, but lately that trend was becoming more common in humans. Rin was a special situation, one that he didn't like to consider too often, or ponder on too hardly, for a multitude of reasons. However, this distracting woman with her quicksilver emotions and their accompanying scents would not be tolerated. Though he took great satisfaction in being able to beat her in demonstrations of wit, her disrespect for his station and power could not be allowed. The feeling of his fingers clenched around her neck and throwing her body into a tree gave him great pleasure.
When she had asked him where they were he was angered that he didn't know. He wasn't going to admit that he was walking with no particular destination in mind. His sense of smell and hearing were greatly diminished and the sensory input he was receiving raised more questions than it was providing answers. He wasn't sure what the miko believed he saw when he ventured up into the treetops, as she, for once, didn't ask him any questions. Even with his demonic sight he didn't see an end to the forest in any direction.
He was glad that she also didn't ask how he knew they were in an enchanted forest because he wasn't prone to lying. At the same time refused to inform her that it must be so based on the type of thoughts he had about her and more importantly about what he would like to do to her and with her body. Seeing as he would never have those thoughts about someone like her, and under normal circumstances he would never behave the way he did it, it made perfect sense that there was some kind of enchantment on him. The fact that he was humoring her was only further proof.
When the miko mentioned his change in demeanor it caught him off guard. He wasn't hurt by her words, that would be impossible needless to say, he was just stunned that she noticed a change in him at all. The fact that she was being affected in some way, as well, was worrying. The fact that this enchantment was affecting someone of his magnitude was suspicious but for the magic to be holding sway over the priestess meant that the spell would not be an easy one to break.
He was trying to concentrate on what the woman was saying about Naruku's castle so it was only natural that he was watching her face. He had no doubt that she was nibbling on her finger in that way to draw attention to her mouth. It was in a moment of great distraction that he even questioned her fantasies about him. Though she didn't answer him, her scent gave him more of an answer than her words ever could. His next actions were unexplainable. Her spicy scent was driving him forward and overriding any protests he might have had. His beast was aching for her and had full control of his body. It wanted, needed, one thing and only the human female would be able to provide it for him.
He was glad when her stomach growled snapping him back into some form of control of himself. He was especially glad when her stomach growled the second time. The first time his beast had control was bad enough, but the second time his beast was tense with anticipation just waiting for her to make the first move so it could pounce on her. He ignored what his beast was trying to tell him that the growling of her stomach meant for him, what his beast wanted him to do. He tried to get his beast back into check again but the miko's presence was providing his beast with too much incentive to stick around and fight for dominance. The taste of her finger in his mouth was enough to sway the balance back into his favor for it seemed that his beast was momentarily satisfied. That is until she was foolish enough to liken him to a female inu.
I froze, 'I said that out loud! Maybe he didn't hear me correctly?'
"This Sesshoumaru asked you a question human. Did you liken this one to a female?"
I hazarded a glance at Sesshoumaru. His eyes were blood red and he was clenching and unclenching his hand. I swallowed. I had a few options running through my head.
'I could say nothing but that would lead to him killing me. I could say that he heard me wrong which could lead to him killing me. I could turn it into a joke which may still lead to him killing me. Or, I could admit I said it which would definitely lead to him killing me. Actually, no matter what I do I'm going to probably end up dead anyways. So…'
I put down my dinner and slowly stood up. "Yes. Yes I did."
Sesshoumaru's growl was the only warning I had before my back slammed into the bark of a tree. I flinched as pieces of the wood that bit into me were almost as sharp as the claws around my neck. Sesshoumaru's lip twitched showing me glimpses of his sharp fangs that had lengthened in size and hinted at the fact that he could tear my throat out in a second.
I smiled and licked my lips, "You know that you look really sexy when you're angry. Like you're about to punish me for being a naughty girl."
Sesshoumaru blinked and he loosened his grip on my neck. I grabbed his kimono and pulled him towards me. Shock flashed through his eyes but they didn't change back to their normal amber color. I smiled again before standing on my tiptoes to run my tongue across his teeth.
Sesshoumaru dropped his hand from my neck and moved it to my shoulder to push himself a little further back from me. He blinked again before running his own tongue over the path that I had just taken. I stared at him mesmerized and gasped when I felt my body start to leave the ground.
Sesshoumaru had his hand wrapped in my hair and was using the tension it created to stretch my body upwards and close the distance between us. His eyes flashed a darker red before he tilted his head slightly to kiss me. His lips were nice and warm and his tongue slid across my bottom lip briefly before slipping into my mouth. The sensation of his tongue brushing across mine paralyzed me. As he continued to play with my tongue and gently pull on my hair, I moaned and moved closer to him.
I started to move our play from my mouth into his. I had just skimmed my tongue over one of his fangs when the fire popped. Sesshoumaru pulled away quickly and I blinked when I realized that he was across the clearing staring at me with revulsion.
I sighed and pulled my tongue, which had been hanging in the air, back into my mouth. I sucked on my teeth lightly to savor the taste of Sesshoumaru that lingered there. We stared at each other for a few more moments before I shook my head to clear it and sat back down to finish eating. If it wasn't one thing breaking us from our lustful daze it was another.
Sessoumaru didn't move as he watched me chewing. It made me a little subconscious about how I ate. I mean I don't slurp it down like Inuyasha but at the same time I started to identify with those prissy girls at my school that refused to eat in front of others.
He couldn't keep this up much longer; his beast was getting too bold. Normally it was easy to keep it in submission but something about this forest, it couldn't be this human woman, was helping it fight against its restraints. If it weren't for the fortunate interruptions by the kamis then he was afraid of what he would have lowered himself to doing and with the miko at that.
"Um, Sesshoumaru? Why?" Sesshoumaru tensed and I blushed and hurried on swiftly, "Um, why don't you eat human food?"
Sesshoumaru blinked before he masked his confusion. "Because."
I nodded for him to continue, but he just turned away from me. I shrugged and turned my head to face the fire. If he was going to pretend like nothing happened then so would I. "I could kill for some meat!"
"No one is stopping you."
My mouth dropped open. A few noodles slipped out and splashed onto my shirt. "You've got to be playing!"
"This Sesshoumaru doesn't play ."
"I can't hunt for food!"
"Why not human? Are you too weak?"
"No! It's not that. It's just that, I've never done it before because," I huffed, "Inuyasha always did it for me."
I looked down into my noodles in shame. As independent as I liked to tell Inuyasha I was, tracking, killing, and cleaning an animal wasn't something I insisted on doing myself.
"You don't expect this Sesshoumaru to hunt for you do you?" Sesshoumaru asked raising an eyebrow like he dared me to say yes. I looked back up from my ramen to glare at him.
"I wouldn't dare ask The Great Lord Sesshoumaru to belittle himself by doing something as below him like looking for food for a human," I said sarcastically trying to control my anger.
Sesshoumaru sniffed and turned his head away from me. "Good, because this Sesshoumaru wouldn't dream of doing it."
I tried to bite back my reply but I was losing quickly. Instead I jammed as many noodles as I could into my mouth. Lady-like, no, but it did prevent me from saying something that could potentially make me lose my head and its attachment to my shoulders. Or at the rate I was going, end me up in another intimate position. I mean, I like being hot and bothered as much as the next girl, but the ache that was starting to throb wasn't getting satisfied, it was getting worse. I was getting to the point where I was ready to jump Sesshoumaru and rip his clothes off; my pride and dignity be damned.
"Hunting for you would mean this Sesshoumaru actually considers you as a potential mate."
My attempt to keep my mouth shut failed miserably. "Inuyasha hunts for me all the time!"
"That is not the same thing."
"He hunts for your whole group not just you. It is not as intimate."
"Oh really? It could be that he actually loves me."
"Demons do not love; they feel attachment."
"So you mean Inuyasha can't fall in love with me because he's part demon?"
"No, this Sesshoumaru did not say that."
"So I have a chance of him loving me?"
"You are doing it again."
"Hoping he can love me isn't flattering myself."
"It is not what you said, but how you said it."
"That's how I sound when I'm excited."
"I will not even take that bait, as easy as it may be. He can not love you because he thinks he is in love with the other priestess."
"People can fall out of love."
"But?" Sesshoumaru didn't say anything. "Go on say what you wanted to say. Yes, people can fall out of love but-."
"He could never love you."
"What are you going to say next? Like the way I could? Oooh, oooh, or how about how the way I deserve to be loved? Or possibly because I am the most beautiful girl in the world and he can't appreciate that?"
"Now you are living in a fantasy, miko."
"And you're such an expert on relationships. I don't see you with a wife or children running around."
AN: I would like to thank those that took the time to review. I usually like to thank reviewers some way within my story but from now on I will just reply to them instead. (I like that new feature :)! ) Please let me know if the way I included Sesshoumaru's point of view is confusing. I already started Chapter 4 and that's how I'm explaining his thoughts there too, at least in what I have written so far.
