This was originally a one-shot, which is why I didn't post anymore chapters. I wrote this to see if people liked it, and I guess you guys did like it by looking at how many reviews there are. O.o Thank you for the many reviews! And I am very sorry for not mentioning that this was a one-shot. Sumimasen...

I noticed that many of you want me to post more. But since it was a one-shot, I had nothing to post. You guys have inspired me to write more, so I did. I wrote a sequel to this which I will start posting soon (meaning about 2-4 weeks). This is a teaser for the sequel...

Kagome looked up at the sky. It was clear which made it easy to see the crescent moon. She remembered what happened that night. The look in Sesshoumaru's eye's. It was different from other times she had seen him.

"Kagome?" the hanyou asked. "You feeling ok?"

"Huh?" Kagome turned to him and smiled. "Oh I'm fine! Don't worry, it's nothing."

"Are you sure? You seem to be worried about something." Inuyasha said as he watched her.

It took a minute for Kagome to think of what to say. "I-I'm just a bit worried about some tests coming up for which I haven't studied yet. It's nothing you should worry about."

Miroku and Sango looked at Kagome, then at Inuyasha, who didn't seem to be buying it.


Sesshoumaru looked at Rin who was playing in the river. She was laughing as she splashed water at Jaken, who didn't seem to like it. His mind drifted off to that night when he had found that human girl who was always with Inuyasha bathing.


Inuyasha suddenly stopped walking. Kagome and the others looked at him waiting, but Inuyasha didn't say or do anything. Kagome walked up to him, but before she could say anything, he spoke.

"He's close. I know it."

"Huh? Who are you talking about, Inuyasha?" Kagome asked, stepping closer to the hanyou.

"Sesshoumaru, he's coming this way," Inuyasha responded, not noticing Kagome's expression. Before Kagome could speak again, Inuyasha ran off in the direction he had smelled his half-brother.

It wasn't far before Inuyasha was face to face with the Lord of the Western Lands. "Sesshoumaru..." Inuyasha said in a low growl as he took Tetsusaiga out of it's sheath. "What are you doing here?"

"Same as always, I see. Always quick to rush in, foolish really." Sesshoumaru's comment seemed to make the hanyou more angry. Inuyasha tightened his grip on Tetsusaiga as Sesshoumaru took his sword in his hand, ready to fight. Then the hanyou attacked.


Inuyasha approached Kagome and sat next to her. "Kagome..." he began, "what's wrong? You've been acting strange lately. And don't say you're fine because I won't believe you!"

Kagome was silent. She just sat there, looking at the fire. Now Inuyasha was starting to worry more. But he couldn't force her to tell him what was wrong. So he just didn't say anything more.

"Inuyasha…" Kagome suddenly spoke. "Why… do you hate Sesshoumaru?"

"Huh?" Inuyasha was surprised by Kagome's question.

"He's you brother, isn't he?" Kagome continued, but did not turn to look at Inuyasha. "Then why… Why do you hate him so much? Why are you two always fighting?"

Inuyasha didn't know what to answer to that. He thought for a minute, then spoke, "Sesshoumaru… He…"


The swords clashed. Attacking again and again, the two brothers fought against each other.

Kagome and the others watched. They didn't know what to do. They knew that had to do something or else Inuyasha would end up badly hurt. But at the same time, they also knew that Inuyasha wouldn't just walk away from this fight.

Inuyasha slid across the ground as Sesshoumaru launched at him again. Blocking his brother's attack, Inuyasha tried to push him back. Blood dripped from the hanyou's wound on his abdomen.


Inuyasha's eyes widen at what he saw. His heart was starting to ache.


'Damn, I'm losing strength,' the hanyou thought to himself. 'I can't lose!' Inuyasha pushed off his brother and attacked. Sesshoumaru easily dodged the attack though. Just as Inuyasha was about launch at his brother again, the Lord of the Western Lands knocked him down making him lose his grip on Tetsusaiga.

Kagome, Sango, Miroku, and Shippou were all even more worried now. "Inuyasha… get up!' Kagome thought to herself.

Sesshoumaru slowly made his way to the beaten hanyou, who still on the ground motionless.

I hope the teaser was good. Sorry if it was a bit confusing… I included bits and pieces of different chapters from the sequel.

I've been meaning to post this sooner, but I've been busy. It's close to my b-day (july 14), so I decided to check what unfinished projects I had (which were many ;;) and continue them... Let me know what you thought of the teaser, k? Ja ne!
