Sorry for the very, very long wait. Everything has been piling up in all aspects of my life, and unfortunately my writing had to be put on-hold for a while. I have had no inspiration for months and months, just now was when I felt like writing again, and thought that I actually had some pretty good ideas. I will try and update more now that I am past the wedding chapter, this was a bitch for me to write, I had no ideas for it after I lost the original chapter. I am still not so sure if it is any good, but I did my best. I do not want to abandon my stories like so may people do, so this is an attempt to get my creative side going again.

Sorry about it being so short, but really it is the other half to the last chapter, I just wrote it a lot later. The next chapter will be much long, and it should have more of the stalker in it. Gee, now that I think about it I do not even remember why I even put him in here. I might just get rid of him when I edit this story, see which version that everyone likes better or something. Anyhow, enjoy.

WARNING: I have been gone for a very long time, so this might suck.

DISCLAIMER: I do not own Inuyasha or the song "Collide", which is by Howie Day, who I love to death.


The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You're barely waking
And I'm tangled up in you
Yeah

The time of the wedding was drawing closer, and everything seemed to be going along just fine. Kira was nearly ready, the children had yet to mess up their clothes, and Inuyasha was no-where to be found. Everything was perfect, except that no one could find Sesshoumaru, or the groom. They were seen talking together by a few people, but they had sort of just vanished a few minutes later. I did not tell Kira, she was already on-edge about everything, I did not want her to lose control now.

I searched everywhere for them, I called Sesshoumaru's cell phone, but I could not find them and he would not answer. I knew that he was not happy about this, but I did not think that he would actually do something about it. He had threatened to make him disappear may times before, but no one thought that he would actually act on it. We knew that he was just being over-protective and wanted to make sure that Kira would not be hurt again, but this was just going to far.

"Where could he be?" I asked myself over and over again even though I knew that it would do me no good.

I decided to go outside one more time and see if I could find them, but the thought that is was useless kept coming back to me, I pushed them aside and went anyway. It was cold outside, but everything looked so beautiful, so it was worth the cold. I walked to the parking lot and began my search all over again, when I did not find them there I walked all around the outside of the building, but still I had no luck. He did not want to be found, and he made sure of that.

"When I find him I'm going to-" I did not have a chance to finish my sentence, because the next thing I knew I was being grabbed by the arm and turned around.

"You're going to what?" Sesshoumaru asked with a smirk, a smirk that I wanted to smack right off of his face, but knew that I would never try to do.

"Yell at you for disappearing. Kira has been wanting to see you, but I could not find you and I did not want to tell her that you had gone missing this close to the ceremony," I tried to act mad, but he just looked so good that I just wanted to hug him.

"Well then, I suppose we should go inside and see her before she begins to worry," he said before grabbing my arm and pulling me inside, not even giving me a chance to say anything else.

He pulled me inside and straight to the room that Kira was in. When we walked in the room Kira's whole face grew into a huge smile.

"I'm getting married," was all that she said before she stood up and threw her arms around her brother.

I knew that she was still nervous, but I guess it finally hit her that this was the one thing that she had wanted, and that she was finally marrying the man that she was in love with. All I could do was smile at how happy she was.


Sesshoumaru's POV


I'm open, you're closed
Where I follow, you'll go
I worry I won't see your face
Light up again

Even though I would never tell anyone, or really show it more than I had to, I was happy for my sister. This really was the happiest that I had seen her in a very long time. She is an amazing person that did not deserve a day of displeasure, and that is why I had to talk to him. I had to make sure that he was only going to show her the best days of her life, and that he would never do anything to make her unhappy. I believed him when he said that he loved her and would do whatever it took to make her happy, but I am still going to watch out for her, and I will never truly like him.

"Yes, you are getting married in ten minutes," I could not believe in a few short minutes my little sister would be out of my life, though not fully, it would be very different.

I knew that she would be leaving, and most times I loved the idea of it, but we have always been together. True, we did not always live together, there were many years when we were apart for months at a time, but in the end we always found our way back into the routine. Most would find it to be odd, us being this old and still holding onto each other, but when you were alone most of your life, if not physically but emotionally, then you hold onto what you can for as long as you can. I can admit that to myself, I love my sister to death, but now I have to learn to hold onto other things in life and let her go to live her own life away from me.

"It seems like forever," she said with a smile on her face, she was always one to smile, unlike me.

"Before you know it, you will be married and very happy,"

"Oh, Sesshou-chan, I am already happy, this will just make everything even more perfect,"

In a way I knew that she was right, but I could not help that I was still losing her, but I knew that with Kagome by my side, it would not be as hard as I first thought. Even though we are hundreds of years old, I think that we are just now truly growing up and learning how to live life. Life is not just about work, but love. Life is about finding the people that mean the most to you and making them happy, because if they are happy then you are also happy. I know all of this now, so if Kira is happy, then I am too.

"You are right, everything is perfect. We could not ask for a more perfect life," I knew it was not me to say something like that, but at this point I do not care.

This is my little sisters wedding day, and I have the right to be emotional.


Kagome's POV


Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find
You and I collide

I had left in the middle of their conversation, not wanting to ruin a moment like that. I knew that in a way they needed to say good-bye to their old way of life and welcome their new one. Everyone knew that this would be hard for them, having been together for so long, but you could tell that Sesshoumaru had changed through all of this. He opens up more now, though not drastically so, but he is more affection towards the people that he cares about. I guess now I am one of those people, though hard to believe that we are this close, I am loving every minute of it. Every time that I am near him I cannot help but shiver at the thought of him touching me, or even talking to me.

If you had asked me a year ago if I thought that I would be where I am today, I would have laughed in your face at how ridiculous you sounded. At this point I thought that I would have at least been engaged to Inuyasha and living with him. How stupid I was to think that, and I am glad that all of that happened, because now I am finding out who I really am and what my life was meant to be like. I have my children with me, I am singing to my hearts content, and now I have Sesshoumaru with me. Life could not get any better even if I wanted it too, it is just too perfect already, anything else would not be real.

"There you are Kagome, its almost time and we have to take our places. Where is Kira?" Sango hurriedly said as she ran up to me.

This was it, it was really happening now. I told Sango that Kira was with Sesshouamru and that we should leave them alone for a few minutes, and then we took our places, we were the only two bridesmaids, we stood there proudly as Sesshoumaru walked Kira down the isle towards her new life. He had a proud look to him, something that I had not seen before, something that I would like to see again. Sesshoumaru sat down after he walked Kira all of the way down the isle, his seat was close by so I could see him out of the corner of my eye. I could see him watching me too, and it made me smile.

"Do you Kira, take Hiten to be your husband,"


I missed most of the ceremony, mostly because I could not stop staring at Sesshoumaru. I saw him in a different light now, and he was even more beautiful than before. I caught his eye more than once, and could not look away from him. I knew that everything was beautiful, Sango kept talking about it, I knew that she was planning her wedding the whole time, but I knew how she felt. Being at a wedding just makes you think of what you want your to be life. What kind of flowers that you want, the cake, and most importantly the dress. Every bride wants the perfect dress, something that makes her the most beautiful things there, or at least makes her think that she is. Its something that most girls dream about when they are too small to really know what they want out of life, but that perfect dress stays with them.

Behind the hotel there is a beautiful garden with lights and fountains all around, and Kira thought that even in the winter that this would be the perfect place for the reception. It was not as cold as I thought it would be, and everything was going wonderfully. The fountains were turned on and all of the little lights, not to mention the hundred or so candles that had been lit while the ceremony was going on. I guess the heat from the candles is what kept us all from freezing to death, well, that and the fact that we were just too happy to even care about the cold.

"Would you care to dance, " Sesshoumaru unexpectedly asked, and I of course had to say yes, it was a rare thing for him to want to dance.

Kira and Hiten were already on the dance floor, and they just looked so perfect together, like a masterpiece that would never fade over time like all others did. That was what I wanted, and with Sesshoumaru I thought that I might actually have a chance for that.

I'm quiet you know
You make a first impression
I've found I'm scared to know I'm always on your mind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
I somehow find
You and I collide

"Kagome, you know that I care deeply about you, right?"

I have to admit that I did not expect him to say that. I knew that he cared for me a lot, but for him to come out and ask that brought a strange feeling over me, not bad, but strange.

"Of course I know that, just like you know that I feel the same way about you," that was all I could think to say without sounding like an idiot, something that I am fairly famous for these days.

Don't stop here
I lost my place
I'm close behind

"Good, because I never want you to think anything differently,"

I have had many people say 'I love you' and 'I want to be with you forever' but for some reason what Sesshoumaru just said was the most beautiful and honest thing that I have ever heard. All I could do was kiss him after that, no amount of words could express what I was feeling. I broke away from the kiss when I felt something on my head. I looked up into the sky and all I could see was snow, which just caused me to smile and kiss him again. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day, and nothing could ruin it now.

Kira was right, everything is now falling into place, and instead of things changing for the worse, everything is just getting better.


Stalker's POV


My dear sweet Kagome, soon we will be together again. You and I will be happy together, like we were oh so long ago, and you will see who you truly love.

You finally find
You and I collide
You finally find
You and I collide


Sorry about the ceremony scene being cut short, but I had no idea how to write that, and I did my best. The last wedding that I went to was when I was seven, so yeah, that was eleven years ago, and I really did not want to wing it. Besides, who really wanted to read through all of that boring stuff anyway? That's what I thought. Thanks for all of the wonderful reviews, I will try and answer some of them this week. Happy reading.
