During the next few weeks, the shrine was a buzz with new parishioners who rushed to the shrine to see the three new maidens that graced the shrine's grounds.

Kagome, Sango, and Kagura fell into their duties at the shrine quite well.

Kagura worked right along with Sesshoumaru, helping him work with the young children. Especially one little girl was definitely more happy to see her. When Ryoko saw Kagura again, she broke free from her mother's grasp and ran to the Wind-Youkai in order to hug her tight.

Kagura embraced Ryoko back and asked her, "Do you want to know something Ryoko?"

"What is it Miss Kagura?" Ryoko asked in response.

Kagura leaned forward to whisper into Ryoko's ear. She answered, "Sesshoumaru and I are getting married. I'm his life mate."

Ryoko turned her head to face the Wind-Youkai as her eyes went wide. She then said, "He's lucky to have you Miss Kagura."

Kagura kissed Ryoko's left cheek, then said, "Yes he is."

"Miss Kagura, you don't look the same as Sesshoumaru, are you a Inu-Youkai too?" She asked with the innocence of a young child could.

"No Ryoko, I'm not a a Inu-Youkai like my mate is. I'm a Wind-Youkai," Kagura answered.

"Really, what can you do?" Ryoko asked.

Kagura looked over to her mate for a second then back to Ryoko before answering, "Why don't I show you instead after we are done here."

"I'd like that Kagura, I love you," Ryoko said before she kissed Kagura's right cheek.

Kagura held her right hand up to her cheek and felt the warmth and sincerity from Ryoko's kiss. "I love you too Ryoko, Let's join my mate, then if you really want, we can head out back and I will show you what I really can do."

They headed over to where Sesshoumaru was setting up the chairs to give his lesson to the children.

Miroku and Sango were getting ready for Miroku to give a mid-day sermon in the main temple. They each were dressed in traditional shrine robes of white linen and green stripes make of silk.

Miroku turned to look at Sango and noticed how good she looked in her robe. "Sango, might I say you look gorgeous in that robe."

As Sango finished securing her robe, then turned to face Miroku. She bent her left knee, accentuating her curvy body, then said, "Just to let you know, I went Commando. This robe feels so comfortable that I was able to without worrying about being rubbed the wrong way."

Miroku was not familiar with the term 'Commando'. He nervously asked, "What do you mean Sango?"

Sango closed the distance between the two of them, with a sway in her hips that would drive the men wild. She then answered, "I'm completely naked under this robe Miroku. I might have calmed down a little, but I'm still as brazen as ever." She then slinked away from him and into the main temple.

Miroku's mouth was hanging open as he watched her 'walk' out of the room. After she was out of his sight, he closed his mouth, then said, "Please, give me the strength I need to be the man she needs." Miroku remembered the way it felt to wake up in her arms, then said, "I think I'm falling for the lovely Sango." And followed her into the main temple.

Kagome, Inuyasha, and Lady Izayoi were in the kitchen, preparing the afternoon's snack for the parishioners and every once in a while, Inuyasha would stop what he was doing and steal a glance at Kagome.

Kagome was busying herself making a large pitcher of juice for the children when she felt like someone was watching her. She looked around with her eyes, and noticed a pair of golden colored eyes watching her. But before she could say anything, his eyes returned to their previous task. She finished making the juice and picked up the pitcher in her left hand before she started walking out of the kitchen. But as she started walking past Inuyasha, she reached out and slapped his backside with her right hand before darting out of the kitchen.

Inuyasha jumped when her hand slapped his butt. He turned around in time to see the remnants of Kagome's hair leaving the kitchen. Inuyasha smirked, then softly said, "I like to play too Kagome, when I see you next, you will find out what its like to play with a Hanyou."

None of this escaped Lady Izayoi though. She continued slicing up some fresh apples for the children with a knowing smile on her face.

Inuyasha happened to look over to his mother and saw the smile on her face. He then asked, "What are you smiling about mother?"

"Nothing really Inuyasha dear," she replied not stopping her work. "I'm was just thinking of how well you and Kagome seem to be getting along. You know your brother is marrying Kagura, so when are you going to make a move on Kagome?"

"Mother, Kagome and I do have something to tell you and father. I think I have found my mate and its Kagome,," Inuyasha said.

Lady Izayoi stopped what she was doing, put her knife down, and turned to face her youngest son. With her hands planted firmly on her hips, she asked, "You think Kagome is your mate? Don't lie to me by telling me you weren't at her apartment a few weeks ago and spent the night with her! I know she likes you and you like her!"

"Yes mother, we like each other and I did spend the night with her!" He spat back.

"Then what is the problem?" she asked. "There is an obvious attraction between the two of you, so what is holding you back?"

"I'm a fucking Hanyou mother! I'm not a full Youkai or a full human either! A woman as beautiful as Kagome might say she likes me, but every one of the girls I dated that is like her used me, then threw me away!" He replied but was slapped across the face by his mother.

"Don't you ever talk to me like that again Inuyasha! You might be bigger than me but I'm still your mother and I have no problem taking you down a peg or two!" Izayoi yelled in anger.

Inuyasha stood there completely stunned as the stinging of his mother's slap as well as her words sank in. "Mother, I'm sorry for yelling at you as well as my language," he said before he pulled her into a embrace that could have broken her. "I'm scared mother, I like her so much but I don't want to get hurt again." He smirked then said, "She even calls me her puppy."

"She calls you her puppy? I think you had better talk to her and find out exactly how she feels about you. Can you let me go please Inuyasha? You're a little strong," Izayoi said.

He let her go and made sure his mother was alright before he said, "I guess I don't know my own strength."

"Dear boy, I have seen you move large boulders by yourself and you're telling me you don't know your own strength!? Go and talk to Kagome before I have a word or two with your father about your language!" Izayoi said. "Go NOW!" She yelled as she pointed towards the door.

"Fine mother, I'm leaving," Inuyasha said as he walked out of the kitchen.

Izayoi returned to her preparations and as she worked her knife, she said, "I remember when I called Touga my puppy for the first time. I few weeks later I found out I was pregnant with his pup and that pup was you Inuyasha." She stopped working then said, "Oh, I hope he didn't pup her yet! If he did, I'll kill him."

Inuyasha found Kagome over by Kagura who was reading to a couple of girls. They both had large smiles on their faces as Kagura told a story of how a young and beautiful Wind-Youkai was able to claim the heart of the first son of Inu-No-Taisho. Little did those girls know, that the story was very true.

Kagura finished telling her tale, then Ryoko said, "That is so romantic Kagura, I want to find a prince like him to sweep me off of my feet too."

"Don't worry Ryoko, someday you will find a man that will worship the ground you walk on," Kagura said as she extended her hands to the two girls and said, "We had better join the rest of the group, Sesshoumaru is about to start."

The four girls got up from their seats and started walking over to where Sesshoumaru was sitting. But Inuyasha grabbed Kagome's arm and said, "I need to talk to you, alone."

"Alright," she replied.

They left the small temple and went out by one of the gardens behind both temples.

Kagome looked at the flowers and the budding trees for a second before she asked, "What did you need to talk to me about Inuyasha?"

He hugged her from behind and lowered his chin to her left shoulder. Inuyasha asked, "Kagome, how do you really feel about me?"

She placed her hands over his at her waist and replied, "You know I like you a lot Inuyasha, why are you bringing this up?"

"I'm scared Kagome. I'm scared that I am going to fall deeply in love with you and you are going to throw me away," he said.

She spun around in his arms, stroked his long hair, then said, "I would never do that! You have shown me how it feels to be deeply adored for by someone else so why would I throw you away?"

He let go of her, turned around so she couldn't see his face, and hung his head low. "I thought my ex-girlfriend was the one for me and she left me after I told her I loved her.

Kagome trembled as she listened to Inuyasha tell her about his past.

"Her name was Kikyo and she was quite beautiful. We dated for months and one night, I confessed to her that I loved her. She kissed me one last time before she said this isn't working for me anymore, goodbye Inuyasha and she just left. I saw her again a few days later and she was already dating another guy. I haven't dated anyone since her, until I met you. I am having those same feelings again Kagome and those feelings led me to heartache," He turned to face her then asked, "I want to know how you really feel about me Kagome because I know how I feel about you?"

Kagome answered him the only way she could. She wrapped her arms around his neck and kissed him passionately.

Inuyasha's eyes went wide for a second, then closed them as he gave into the power of her kiss.

Kagome turned up the heat by letting her left hand wander down his back to his butt and giving it a firm squeeze before returning to his lower back. She tapped his lips with her tongue, begging for entrance so she could taste her puppy again.

Inuyasha complied and opened his mouth. He felt her tongue glide across his and lick his fangs. He pulled her tighter to his body and as she felt how her kiss was affecting him, she slipped her left hand down the back of his pants to feel his ass.

Inuyasha moaned into the kiss then Kagome broke it long enough to say, "I think my puppy needs to learn that I'm not going anywhere for a long time." Her hand left his ass and slipped out of his pants long enough to un-do the button holding his pants closed, then slipped her hand down the front. She found what she was searching for and gave his erection a slow stroke. "I think I had better find a away to relieve you of this big problem, lover. I can't let you walk around the shrine like this." Kagome said as she fell to her knees.

Inuyasha was not sure why she was on her knees. But he liked the feeling of her hand rubbing his erect penis. "Kagome, what are you doing?"

"Taking care of you, my puppy. Just relax," She said as her right hand lowered the zipper and his pants fell open.

Kagome looked at the massive member in front of her, then licked her lips before opening her mouth and just taking the head in.

Inuyasha threw his head back and groaned as her tongue worked its magic over his sensitive head.

She lifted her mouth away from his cock, looked at the expression in his face, then said, "I guess my puppy likes. Let's see how you like this." Kagome opened her mouth again and took him in all the way to the hilt. She started bobbing her head up and down on his shaft, paying attention to the vein near the head that she knew drove men wild.

Inuyasha never had a woman do this to him before. However it felt heavenly to him. "Kagome, Ugh, where did you learn to do this? Ahh!"

Kagome lifted her eyes to look at him and noticed his eyes were tightly closed with a grimace on his face that told her he really liked what she was doing. She turned up the heat even more by placing both hands on his bare ass and giving it a firm squeeze as her head bobbed lower, burning her nose in the dense hair of his groin.

"Kagome, if you don't stop, I'm going to lose it," Inuyasha said right before he grunted in pleasure.

Kagome bobbed her head faster to bring him to orgasm quicker while adding more suction in the process. She then closed her eyes and waited for him to start cumming in her mouth.

A few seconds later, Inuyasha let out a growl and exploded in her mouth, shooting volley after volley of hot sperm down her waiting throat.

Kagome felt the first spurt hit the back of her throat. Then pulled back so just the head was in her mouth so his sperm would glide across her tongue before she swallowed it. However, he came in such a volume that some of it escaped her lips and spilled out.

Eventually the monsoon slowed to a drip and he panted heavily from exertion. "That.. That was amazing Kagome." He said and continued panting.

Kagome removed her mouth from him after she made sure he was clean enough to get dressed again and licked her lips clean. She swallowed the last of his sperm, then said as she stood up, "I'm glad you liked it. Now, if I wasn't planning on sticking around, would I do that to you?"

"No, I guess not," Inuyasha said. He then kissed her before he said, "Kagome, you keep finding more ways to make me fall deeper in love with you than I already am. Will you let me give you the same pleasure you gave me?"

"Yes you can my puppy but not here. Come to my apartment tonight and I'll let you please your mate however you want, if you are ready for that," Kagome replied not wanting to push him into something he wasn't ready for. Although she really liked that he wanted to give her as much pleasure as she gave him.

"I'm not sure that I am ready, but I want to try though. I want to know how it feels to make the woman I'm in love with tremble with pleasure as much as I did," Inuyasha said.

She played with his left ear with her right hand as she said, "You have all their time in the world to make me feel good Inuyasha. Please don't rush this, if you are not ready, I don't want to push you."

Inuyasha took her hand in his and brought it to his mouth so he could kiss it before he said, "I want to Kagome, I want to so badly. But you're right, I'm not ready to take our relationship beyond what just happened. Can we slow this down, just a hair?"

Kagome put his hand on her cheek and said, "Sure we can slow this down, I want you to be comfortable with me and not feel pressured into doing anything you don't want." She kissed his hand, then said, "If we return to your brother, I think he will be able to smell what we just did. Care to take a walk around the gardens with your mate?"

Inuyasha smiled at her and took her hand in his as he answered, "Nothing could make me more happy Kagome."

They walked around the garden for the rest of the afternoon while making plans for their first dinner date and sleepover.

Touga poked his head out of the bushes after they left for their walk. He watched as Kagome rested her head against his shoulder as they disappeared around a corner and he said, "My dear boy, you had better take care of her properly like I taught you or I will rip your head off. She is one in a million, just like my mate is." Touga then left the bushes to go and join his wife in the temple.
