O.O I'm shocked people don't start throwing rotten fruits at me...it's been a terribly long time.

Anyways, here's what you've been waiting for.


"Sesshamoru.....!" called Sango in disgust.

"The one and only my dear. Now, if you hand over the portion of the Shikon no Tama that you posess, " he said pointing his long, neatly trimmed claw at Kagome, " I promise to make it less painful than it would if I had to take it unwillingly!"


"Then you shall die!" he exclaimed, raising the Tensuiaga in hand, lowering it quickly over Kagome.


"Kagome!" Sango screamed, paralyzed with fear as she watched her friend. Sango felt helpless.. If she used her boomerang, it would hit Kagome as well.

Kagome's face showed fear as Sesshoumaru laughed coldly. "You humans truely are worthless-you cannot even protect yourselves. Youkai, on the other hand, are always the victors."

Kagome closed her once gaping mouth as she bit her tongue from the growing rage within her.

"You...you think just because we 'are' humans, we're worthless?!" she nearly screamed, "I'll show you worthless!"

Sesshomaru stood there, the blade hovering over the young girl, as he smirked.

"What are you going to try to do? Talk me to death?"

Kagome growled.

"Enough playtime!" Sesshomaru said as he grabbed Kagome by her throat, and she began to gasp for air.

"Not so strong-willed now, are you?"

Kagome winced as it was getting harder and harder to breathe. "Itei..." she managed to say. And with that one single word, a blinding blue light emerged from Kagome's body, sending Sesshomaru flying into a nearby tree. Kagome landed on the ground as she recovered from the lack of air.

"Kagome, what did you do?" Sango asked as she ran up to her friend's side.

"I-i'm not sure..."

"Well, whatever it was, it worked!" Sango smiled happily.

Kagome looked at Sesshomaru-or where he had been. He was now gone, as if he were never there. Kagome shook her head. 'Coward..' she thought.


Ok, you will probably get a new chapter soon. Promise! Also, I was just starting to get into Inuyasha when I wrote this, so I know there's alot of mistakes-just go with it for the story's sake.
