AN II: I couldn't bare to allow Rusafa to be dead, so he is alive in my fic.
A pained groan escaped Kagome Higurashi's lips. She shouldn't have hit ground. She had jumped into the well for kamis' sake! They had defeated Naraku, made the wish on the jewel, saved the furture, and ultimately the world! Was this her reward? Was this her reward for saving all of creation? Well if it was, she didn't ask to be rewarded, she didn't want to be rewarded.
She sat up slowly, feeling for any resitant muscles or bones. All she could remember was finishing her mission, jumping into the well, and noticing the well's light was not blue. That's it! She realized then that the well had taken her to... wherever she was. The light had been pink not the usual blue.
"Kagome?" a familiar voice said.
Kagome jumped and swung around to find the source of the voice. When her eyes landed on the girl, she almost went to peices with relief.
"Yuri!" she said.
Kagome was relieved. Yuri was there, her cousin. She had went missing a while before. But wherever they were, she had found her and hopefully together they could find a way to get home.
"Kagome! How did you get here?" Yuri asked, rushing over to her cousin.
"All I remember is going into a well, then a strange light, and waking up here. Where are we?" Kagome asked.
"You are in my new home. Hattusa, the capital of the Hittite Empire in Anatolia. I am it's Queen." Yuri informed her.
Kagomes' eyes went as big as saucers and swung around to get a look around herself. She could feel the dry heat of desert winds as it blew against her skin. But the architecture around her and the way her cousin was dressed had her thinking it wasn't the twenty-first century.
"Yuri, you said Hittite Empire, what year is it? Better yet who is on the throne?" Kagome asked, her voice soft but strained.
"My husband, Emporer Kail Mursili II." Yuri answered, knowing what was coming.
Yuri, herself, had been in a similar position as her little cousin just years before. Kagome swallowed thickly, then took a very deep breath. She nodded to Yuri and placed a pained smile on her face.
"Kagome are you alright?" she asked her.
"Yuri, I'm in around about the fourteenth century. That is farther back than I have ever went and I am in a different country. I'm not ok." Kagome said.
"Farther back? What do you mean?" Yuri asked.
"You're not the only time traveler in our family. I jumped back and forth between Fuedal Japan and modern day for a year now. I finished my mission there and was going home, when the well went insane and dropped me here." Kagome explained, not going into full detail.
"Wow. That is... wow. We are going to have a lot to talk about." Yuri commented.
"Yeah, I'm stuck here, aren't I?" Kagome said lowly, fiddling with a chain on her neck.
"Pretty much. But atleast you have me. I won't let anything happen to you. Kail and I will protect you. Come on, you need to meet Kail." Yuri said and grabbed her hand.
Emporer Kail had expected to see his wife enter their chambers by herself not with a girl that dressed like she was a common streetwalker or looking similar to Yuri. They were to leave for Egypt in a few minutes and Yuri had up and disappeared only to return with a girl.
"Yuri, who is this?" he asked, before she even got a chance to say anything.
"This is my little cousin, Kagome. She just arrived here from my time and she is stuck here." Yuri explained.
Kagome had then said something aloud in the same language Yuri had been speaking when he had first met her. It hit him, she had no clue to what they were saying.
"I see. How did she get here?" he said.
"A well. She is a time traveler..." she told him, telling him everything that Kagome had already told her.
Kail listened quietly and when she was through, he nodded. He then motioned Yuri over to him and asked her what they were to do about the language barrier. Yuri suggested that he kiss her. It had worked for her when they met. He did not want to do it. Even with Yuri telling him to, it was almost like betraying her. He wouldn't do it!
"We will postpone our venture to Egypt for a few hours. She needs to be cleaned up, dressed properly, and fed. We will bring her with us when we leave." he said, "Yuri call your handmaids and help her prepare for the journey." he said and left the room to see about their baby before she shoved him at her.
"I'm so sorry, Yuri, I will be a burden. I can't speak the language." Kagome apologized.
"Kagome, you will have to come with us. We will be leaving in a few hours, it is just safer for you to. I won't elaborate but just believe me." Yuri said and several young women came rushing through the door.
It was almost the last day of their trip to Egypt when Kagome asked Yuri where they were going and why. Kagome felt so embarrassed. She was going to a wedding and she didn't know the couple or have a gift for them. It was like she was crashing the most important even and it was made worse for her when Yuri explained that it was one of the pharoahs' sister that was getting married to one of their generals; Rusafa and Nefert were their names. An unity between the lands.
By time they arrived in Egypt, Kagome had decided not to say a word to anyone. It was just better that way, so she wouldn't embarrass herself, Yuri, Kail, or whoever she was trying to speak to. She even told Yuri so and Yuri laughed lightly, telling Kail what she had said. He looked at her thoughtfully.
As they were escorted in with the other guests, Kagome became increasingly nervous and as the line continued to shorten the nervousness began to bare down on her. She kept her head down as she walked beside Kail and Yuri, the last thing she needed was for anyone to notice how pale she was. She felt Yuri tug on her hand and brought her head up to look in front of her and saw a man sitting on the throne.
She almost blushed when he looked her straight in the eyes. Every noise ceased in her ears, all she could hear was the loud crashing of her heartbeat. She took note of every feature. He was blonde; that was strange to her since he was Egyptian, and he had two different colored eyes; one was gold and the other sepia.
A tug on her arm had her thoughts rushing back under wraps and she looked to see Yuri and Kail giving him a bow and she quickly did the same. But before her eyes were parallel to the floor she shifted her gaze back to his face and saw a smug smirk on his, he had noticed her gaping at him. She sent him a glare that could have chilled the whole desert and his smirk turned into an accepting smile. She had unwittingly challenged him.
Night had come to Egypt and Kagome was restless. She missed her family, her friends, the fuedal era, and even the rush of her powers coming to her beck and call. It had only been a week since she had landed in the gardens of Yuris' palace and in just that week she had become so very homesick. She needed to clear her head and possibly feel some semblance of her once life. She needed to feel the pump of adrenaline rushing through her veins. Needing to wear herself out so she could sleep; Kagome did the one thing that could strain her muscles, to burn the energy, she went for a walk.
When she had been shown to her rooms the servant had taken her passed the gardens and they had caught her attention immediately. They were lush and green, the flowers vibrant and fragrant, and in the midst of the garden was a fountain. It was all strange to her since it was a desert but who was she to judge.
She walked slowly through the garden, taking in the beauty of a rare delight in the swathing heat of the desert. A gentle breeze blew changing her mind about swathing heat to chilly zephyr. The temperature changed so dramatically there and she decided that she preferred the night time, so much cooler and calmer.
A sloshing sound caught her attention and Kagome went in search of it. She found in a hidden corner of the garden, right under the balcony of her room, was a well. A servent was drawing water from it and then disappeared with the bucket. A sudden wash of memories cascading on her and she went to peer into the well. It was very similar to the one she had always used to jump time. It almost even felt the same. Strange.
She leaned against the well to let herself fall into her memories as she stared into the watery bottom. So caught up in her thoughts she never noticed that she wasn't alone until a robe was being enclosed around her shoulders. She jumped at the sudden contact and spun around to see who was with her. She had expected it to be Yuri or even possibly Kail but not him!
Surprise was evident in her eyes but she wasn't going to give him the satisfaction of seeing it on her face. Instead Kagome nodded her acceptance of the robe and averted her eyes to the ground. He apparently didn't like that and had placed his thumb and forefinger beneath her chin to bring her gaze back to his. Her eyes widened at this and locked onto him. He smiled then, it was warm and happy, not like the one she had seen earlier.
He then spoke. She had no idea what he was saying but she liked his voice. It was silky and warm, a shiver had ran down her spine when he spoke. She couldn't understand a word he was saying but she did understand his body language as he was drawing nearer to her, leaning in to her, his eyes focused on her own. He was going to kiss her!
Just as Kagome was going to pull away, Ramses slammed his mouth on to hers. A sudden jolt shot up her spine and she fell into him. Her blood heated instantly as he worked his mouth on hers, caressing her lips with his tongue as he sought enterance to her mouth. His hands roamed over her shoulders, down her arms and sides; one coming to rest on her left hip and the other on the small of her back. Ramses pulled her against him, intent on ravishing her, to draw out the fire he had seen inside of her earlier that day.
Never in her life had she been kissed like that. Sure she had been kissed by Inuyasha a couple of times but it had never felt like that. She had loved Inuyasha and she never felt this spark that she was feeling as Ramses kissed her. A fire had been ignited within her veins that had never been there before and she liked it. The way her lungs burned from lack of oxygen added to the burning and electricity under her skin. At the last second as black spots danced in front of her eyes, Kagome jerked away and heaved in air.
"Wow!" she breathed out.
She leaned against him to regain her strength, panting heavily. She closed her eyes and swallowed thickly. What was happening to her? When had she sunk so low? Not that he wasn't gorgeous and he seemed to be a good person but when had she allowed herself to feel want after a kiss?
"I thought you couldn't speak my language."
Kagome froze. Realization hit her like a ton of bricks. She understood him! How did she understand him? She didn't before he kissed her but now after h... Her thoughts halted. He kissed her and she could could understand. Before he kissed her she didn't understand. What was going on?
"I.. I don't know. I couldn't before but now I can." she explained.
What has happened to her? What was going on? All she could conclude was that it must have been him. One minute she couldn't understand a word he was saying, then he kissed her, and the next minute she could understand him and speak his language.
Kagome looked at him and then took off. She had to find Yuri and see if she knew what was going on.
She ran all the way to Yuri and Kail's chambers. As soon as the doors came into sight her legs increased their speed and she crashed through the doors with a loud,...
She tripped over her dress and flipped head over heels and landed uncerimonously at Kail's feet. He stared down at her with confusion and suprise evident on his face. Kagome jumped up, looking around for Yuri, as if nothing had happened. As soon as she saw Yuri she pounced on her.
"Yuri! What has happened to me?" Kagome said with a little panic.
"What are you talking about?" Yuri asked, trying to pull herself from Kagome's grip.
"Why can I suddenly speak the language? I can suddenly speak the same language as Kail and Ramses." She said.
"Ok, slow down. When did this occur?" Yuri asked her calmly.
Kagome sat down and thought it all through before she said anything.
"I have a suspicion but it is crazy. Ok, so I was in the garden looking around and then I saw a servent getting water from a well in the corner of the garden. When she disappeared I went to it and peered into it. Then Ramses showed up and he was talking to me." she said and stopped to take a breath.
"Ok, and did you understand him then?" Kail asked.
"No, I didn't. Then he got this look in his eyes and well, one thing led to another, and I can speak the language." Kagome finished, skirting around the kiss.
"One thing led to another?" Kail asked.
"Oooooh! Awww, Ramses kissed you! That is why you can speak the language. He kissed you... oooh, did you like it?" Yuri squealed.
"Yes, she liked it."
Yuri saw Kagome's face ignite to a fire red. She almost laughed but instead choked it down and looked at her friend leaning against the doorway. She smiled at him as he looked right through her to her cousin. Finally! Even Kail had seen it and smiled.
"I.. I... um. hawh." was all Kagome could articulate out.
Ramses walked up to her and offered her his hand and she just looked at it. She really didn't want to know if there was another ability that would come over her if she touched him. She already could speak his language just from a kiss; what would happen if she held his hand? Before she could think anymore, Yuri had shoved her right out of her seat and into his arms.
Kagomes' face had brightened to an extreme shade of red and then she was glaring at Yuri, who was smiling hugely at her.
"What are you doing?" Kagome mouthed at her.
"Helping you insure your future!" Yuri mouthed back.
Kagome gave her a deadpan look which was quickly replaced by an even redder face, as a hand was low and a little to far to the back left on her right hip. She squeaked and resisted the urge to slap the hell out him, she didn't want to end up in prison, embarrass her cousin, or possibly give him more incentive to pursue her. If that was what he was doing.
"Ramses, you are about to get slapped." Yuri pointed out to Kagome's twitching hand.
He looked at her hand and smiled. She was really holding herself back and he smirked. What would it take to get her to show that same fire he had seen earlier? He lowered his head and whispered in her ear. Kagome gasped loudly and her hand went flying right for him.
Yuri and Kail watched in panic. She was going to get herself killed! Just before her hand met his face, her wrist was grasped firmly in his hand. She was glaring fiery daggers at him while he was smirking. That was all it took, a dirty innuendo. He was going to have fun with her, she would be good to tease. He liked the fire she held and would like to see it more often than he already did.
Kagome was glaring daggers at him. She knew it had to be his two-toned eyes that were causing her to be a sucker. She knew that if this had been Inuyasha, he would be eating dirt. If it had been Miroku, he would be unconcious with a large knot on his head and a red handprint on his face. If it had been Hojo, she would have been running the other way. But it wasn't. It was Ramses, Pharaoh of Egypt, and her flirty tormentor. The man was enjoying getting under her skin.
A loud clearing of a throat brought both of their's attention to the other occupants of the room. Yuri was looking at them with a look that said, "well go on already" while Kail was making a shooing motion.
"Please take your sexual tension away from our room. We don't need you taking over our bed." Yuri said just to get them out.
Kagome covered her ears and shrieked. Red face, she stormed out of the room, determined to put a little space between herself and the earnst while King, who was following right behind her.
AN: Hmmm, just the beginning. There will be another chapter. Characters may be a little off, I'm still new to the Red River verse.
