For your reviews on chapter 14! I really appreciate the reviews guys.
As a question to my reviewers: Would you like to me to post u back for your reviews? I do read them all and was wondering on how you would feel to me writing back. Though I will do so privately or at least I will try to...just so it doesn't make my chapters seem longer than they really are XP
All right now on to the Chapter!
Inuyasha stood in the forest tetseiga in his hands. Sweat beads on his forhead. His red firerat kimono clung to his him like a second skin. Inuyasha could smell his blood thick in the air. And felt nauseous from the scent. He'd lost to much blood but the demon had lost more. And with one more strike it would be dead.
"Wind Scar!" The as-of-today 140 year old demon cried. The spider demon before him let out a terrible screech before splitting right in half. Inuyasha thrust his sword into the dirt pushing his weight against it with the little strength he had left.
How could Kagura think he was ready for this!
She had been training the boy for a few years and than this! Thrusting him into battles that drew him nearer and nearer to enemy lines. For example this demon he had just fought was without a doubt a dragon demon from the north. There was no way such a creature would be present in the West seeing as his father had banished them and chased them from his lands. As did his father's father, and his father's father's father.
Though it came as no surprise that a dragon demon was now present in the Western Lands. The war had become absolute chaos. When Inuyasha stayed at the palace in the Land Of Winds they were usually safe. The only exceptions of this being Shippo's parents. Who were later discovered to have been killed by a spy of the East who was destroyed by Sesshomaru. Therefore Inuyasha's presence as well as those of his servants remained secret. However there were times that Inuyasha and the creatures of the palace felt the trembles from the battlefields so far away.
Trembles caused by huge clashes in demonic energy. Masa had often told them that the huge energy ripples that ripped grounds open and could break apart mountains were the energy waves coming from Inutaisho. When Inutaisho's energy would reach the palace grounds the whole palace would shake. Often a few trees would shatter and they brought rains and heavy winds with them each time.
She also explained that Sesshomaru was the weaker energy waves. Though it was usually just a faint earthquake that would shake the palace. Inuyasha was always so envious when he felt those powers reach the palace. He knew now more then ever after his training with Kagura that he could never be that strong for he was but a half demon. Though he could wish that he could become as strong as they.
Kagura often told him that he could be. As long as he trained and stayed focused on the task at hand. Which lead Inuyasha to his next kill.
"Blades of Blood!" The young Inu cried. Tetseiga pressed firmly to his hip. Being held in Inuyasha's left arm which he believed to be broken.
Inuyasha then closed his eyes expanding his senses. There were more of them. Inuyasha thought to his horror. Many many more of them. Hundreds? Maybe more...
He needed to finish them off now. He could handle these low class demons. He knew he could. He was just having a harder time because of that damn dragon demon injecting him with poison. Poison that was much weaker than Sesshomaru's own. It should have been nothing to Inuyasha after all this time. But Inuyasha knew the messages his body was trying to send him. And it was so damn hot. So hot that the boy felt like he may sweat to death. His water levels were low. His head was pounding and Inuyasha knew that if he were just some human that he would be long dead.
Inuyahsa stood in his stance prepared to take down the rest of the demons. He only had enough energy for one good strong attack. Hopefully that would be all he needed. The boy closed his eyes. A grin on his face. Would it be weird to remanisce on how far he'd come in his training since that first day?
Inuyasha's eyes were sore...it wasn't that waking up at dawn was a terrible thing. It was waking before dawn, just to know that he would get his butt severely beaten.
Inuyasha knew Kagura much to well to know that she wouldn't go easy on him. She would have him sweating blood if she needed to, because that was the type of person Kagura was. Kagura was extremely frightful with all her...well extremity. She pushed herself to limits that others wouldn't dare cross. How else could a half kumo half witch become powerful enough to fight on par with Sesshomaru a full demon? Saying it required hard work would be an understatement.
Inuyasha sighed. Today was not a good day to begin training though. Kyoshiro had been restless all night. He was not use to someone's presence being as strong as Kagura's. A side from her presence there had been Sesshomaru's that was very strong but Kyoshiro hadn't seen much of his other father in his life now had he?
Inuyasha contemplated for a moment would Sesshomaru be proud of their son? Well of course he would. Kyoshiro was wise beyond his years and developing demon markings at such a young age couldn't be described as anything short of amazing...or mystical. It made Inuyasha feel so small in the scheme of all things. As though he needed to learn so much more.
But this was getting of topic. Who cared about grumpy wumpy Sesshomaru (as Kagura described him). In the end Kyoshiro had not a wink of sleep. His eyebrows furrowed as if he was in deep contemplation. An adorable look on the ten year old demon. Though Kyoshiro did look like he was in deep contemplation since the moment he was born. He chuckled.
Which led the pup in his arms to look at him furrowing his eyebrows once more causing Inuyasha to simply laugh harder. How Inuyasha wished that his pup would forever stay this cute!
When he had met up with Kagura had met up with him she had taken Kyoshiro (for the boys safety of course...amongst other things). Inuyasha was pleased by the fact that both Kyoshiro and Kagura seemed to get along relatively well. Something that was uncharacteristic for both of them. Though it was said that two of the same kind stuck together.
The whole morning had consisted of Inuyasha fighting of Kagura's minions trying to see where Inuyasha's energy level was. At first Inuyasha was very hesitant. They were flying kumo and very small. It made him feel bad at the thought of killing them. Then he cut the first one open with his Iron Reaver Soul Stealer. Needless to say the little bugger blew up in his face releasing all its toxins onto Inuyasha.
The first thirty or so were easy enough to kill. But after that it all went down hill. Fighting off this many demons was not something the younger Inu had done before and as soon as one flying kumo died, it felt like three others took its place.
It was then he heard Kagura's voice instructing him, to use the sword. Though when Inuyasha used it, it seemed to only set him back.
'How could his father fight with this junky old sword?' He wondered.
He knew his father was a strong swordsman but this piece of junk wasn't worth much. His father could probably just get a better sword from a blacksmith in training. He received a great tongue lashing from Kagura when he voiced his thoughts on that matter. He learned that the value of ones sword was due to its master and not to its appearance (though it helped that Tetseiga was a demonic sword).
By the third hour Inuyasha was exhausted Kagura had told him reassuringly (at least in her own way) that he was not completely useless, just mostly and that by the time she was finished with him he'd give most full demons a run for their money, maybe even Sesshomaru...
Kagura kept true to her words. And by the third week he had learned the power of the mighty sword. All he could think about was how amazing his father was to be able to create and fight with such a sword. The fact that he created three great swords, only greatened this admiration. It made Inuyasha realise how little he actually knew of his father. And just how scary the man really was. Needless to say Inuyasha was glad that the man had never raised a hand against him. Though he knew that Sesshomaru had not been that lucky on more than one occasion. He often wondered why...What was it about Sesshomaru that angered his father so much.
But that wasn't the point right now. At the third week Inuyasha had learned the windscar. At the fourth month he learned how to tap into his spiritual powers from his mother's side and create an incredibly strong barrier. Using the sheath of the sword and his own powers he could create a barrier that rivaled Kikyo's own.
Kagura was not shocked to see this though. Considering the rumors she heard about of when Inuyasha was pregnant and created a barrier. Though she believed that part of the reason the barrier was so strong was because it was a form of a fight or flight reaction in which Inuyasha believed he was loosing his child. In a strike against the "enemy" he created a barrier to protect his young.
Inuyasha had also learn the ability to expand his senses to the area around him. He could smell things from a further distance and by concentrating and tapping into all his senses he could create a picture of the life forms around him. He could tell how many enemies there were and what there threat level was based on the amount of energy they emitted. Being perfectly honest it was one of Inuyasha's favorite abilities. Next to windscar of course!
But this brings us to our current dilemma. Ten years into training Kagura had thrown the boy into this situation. Originally this was a test to see how far that our little hero had come. However even he knew something had gone horribly wrong.
The test was to last two days however it was going on his fifth and no sign of Kagura. Usually should would appear after she was sure that Inuyasha was not in control of the situation. She couldn't have the young lord dying on her now could she? His parents would probably kill her ten thousand times over than revive her with tenseiga at kill another ten thousand times over and than curse everyone in association with Kagura. Maybe even kill them too.
Yes, Inuyasha's parents were completely protective of their son. But who could blame them, most hanyou's were killed in their first fifty years of life if they were even that lucky.
Inuyasha could not focus on Kagura now. An image of Inuyasha's young son flashed before his eyes. The demon infant would soon be twenty years old. And Inuyasha felt incredibly uncomfortable leaving his son for so long. He had never been seperated from the boy for more than two days. Now four days and no sign of getting home the young barer was worried. But Inuyasha knew he could fight these demons. He had to...to return to his son, his parents, and his servants.
Inuyasha's brows furrowed as he got into his fighting stance. They were here.
"WINDSCAR" The boy screamed. Letting out a powerful energy blast from his sword. Inuyasha's eyes briefly changed red but just as quickly as the change occurred it was reversed.
Inuyasha watched as his energy blast, more powerful than he had ever managed, sliced through the demons like they were cakes. Hundreds upon hundreds were being slain by this one powerful blast. A grin found its way to Inuyasha's face he had done it or so he thought.
Inuyasha's celebration was short lived. Fifty or so demons appeared upon the horizon. All stronger than the ones he had previously killed.
'Shit' Was the only thing that went through his head.
Inuyasha lifted his sword with weak arms. His arms quivered. His wounds began bleeding more heavily. And the heat it was much to intense. He began to pant as though he was a man starved from water for weeks. He felt his eyes blur.
'Not now' The boy thought frantically. 'He'd done so well his body could NOT be giving into to it now!'
Inuyasha felt his body begin to fall forward. The last thing he saw was a white blur.
Inuyasha awoke groggily. He felt his throat burn in thirst. Slowly he opened his exhausted eyes. Taking in his surroundings.
He was met with a red eyed stare.
A whisper escaped the boys lips "Sesshomaru"
