Later that evening, Sesshomaru and Kagome sat on the couch in the Higurashi's living, room, just watching television and enjoying each other's company.

'Part of me doesn't want the night to end. Part of me doesn't want to go back to the Fuedal era, because as soon as I do, all of this will be over..' she sighed inwardly.

"What's wrong?" Sesshomaru asked. His arm caressed her back lovingly.

"Nothing." she smiled.

"Don't lie."

"I just don't want the day to end, that's all."

"Who says it has to?"

Kagome smiled. " about we play a board game?"


"Come on, you'll see." she said as she got up and went up to her room, followed by Sesshomaru.

She pulled out a checker board from her closet and sat it on the bed. She set up the game pieces and went to explain.

"Ok, you move the pieces onto these squares," she said as she pointed to the black ones, "One at a time though. And you can only move at an angle, and unless you have been 'kinged', you can only move foward."

Sesshomaru just stared.

Kagome laughed as she began trying to explain the terms in simpler form.

"To be kinged, you have to go to the apponents area here, " she pointed to the final row, "And have to get yourapponent to place another checker on top of the current one, or either flip it crown-side up."

He nodded.

"Ok, want to try to play?"

He moved the first piece.

"Good start, but that was my piece." she laughed. "You are black, I'm red."

He moved a black piece.

They played for a while, and Kagome had mercy on him considering he was new to the whole idea of the game.

With each play he got better and better.

Finally, Kagome looked at the clock. "12:43 a.m! Wow! I better get to sleep."

"Sesshomaru frowned. He didn't want to have to leave, not just yet anyways.

"What's wrong? she asked.

"Why do you humans need so much sleep?" he asked.

"Our bodies are different than yours, and we tire easier..

"Weak humans."

"Hey, I didn't say I was going to , I just said I should."

"Get some sleep. I can tell you are quite tired.

She nodded slowly. "But I'll be ok." she said as she finished putting the checker board away. "Want to watch a dvd?"


"A dvd is a movie just, on a disk."


Kagome got out a few movies and allowed Sesshomaru to pick one. So, she put the Matrix: Reloaded into the dvd player. She sat on the bed her head was probbed up with a pillow, and Sesshoumaru sat beside her and snaked his arm under her neck to give her more support. Within a few minutes, Kagome was fast asleep.

Sesshomaru looked down at her sleeping form, the sakura blossom still embeded in her hair. He leaned down and kissed her cheek, then he, himself drifted into a light sleep.

Ok, Yeah, I was going through the first few chapters. Sorry, I didn't know much about Sesshy up til a few ..well, maybe about a
