(Author: Okay, I might delete this story, cuz I should've done something before even letting you people read this. I wanted to make sure Kota Magic liked it first, or else I probably would've butchered all of her hard work by continuing her fic in the first place _ IF YOUR OUT THERE, KM, I THANK YOU VERY MUCH!)
It was about an hour before the doctor came into the waiting room. Since Inu-Yasha and Kagome's Mother were the only two people in the room today, there was no need to announce names. When the doctor walked up to them, Kagome's Mother stood up; Inu-Yasha was sleeping on a row of chairs.

"Higurashi-san, right?" the doctor asked. She nodded.

"Where's Kagome? Is she alright?" Inu-Yasha asked, rubbing the sleep from his eyes.

"It seems that we don't need to do the C-section, after all--"

"What the hell does that mean?!" Inu-Yasha yelled, picking the doctor up by the collar of his shirt.

"She seems to be alright!" he exclaimed. "Her nor the baby were harmed during the fall!"

"Oh...Heh." Inu-Yasha said, gently putting him down on the ground.

"But you might want to keep her here for the night, just in case. We just want to be cau--" But Inu-Yasha already went to see Kagome.

(Author: Caught? Caucasian? Caudal? I guess we'll never know)

Inu-Yasha sniffed around for Kagome. Though the stench of clean sheets and sick people filled the air, he could still detect Kagome's sweet aroma. He turned down a few halls and eventually found her room then walked in. She was awake. Once she sensed that someone was in the room, she turned her head and seen him. She smiled. He smiled back and walked over to her bed.

"How are you feeling?" he asked.

"Alright, I guess," she said. "A little tired."

"Gomen, Kagome," Inu-Yasha apologized. "I should have been able to protect you, back there."

"It wasn't your fault, Inu-Yasha. I shouldn't have gone back, anyway."

"But I got distracted. You should've been the first thing on my mind."

"*sigh* But the main thing is that we're all okay." Kagome clutched his hand. "You didn't get hurt, I didn't get hurt, and our kodomo didn't get hurt." That was all that mattered. As long as they were all together, everything was alright.

"How are you feeling, Kagome?" asked Kagome's Mother as she walked into the room.

"Just a little tired." she said. "But I can't wait to go home."

The next day, Kagome went home, stayed at home for a few days, but still decided to go back to Sengoku Jidai. Her Mother would only let her visit for a few hours a day, then she had to come right back home.

Kagome and company were all sitting on the floor at Kaede's place. Everybody was curious about what she was going through: Shippou wanted to know how people made babies (his answer would always be "we'll tell you when you get older" or something of the sort; Sango wanted to know about the whole cycle goes (Kagome decided to let her borrow one of her anatomy books); and Miroku wanted to know how "it" went. The latter wasn't a subject Kagome was comfortable about telling (maybe if she's done it a few more times ^_~)

It was around the ninth month and Kagome deicded to go back to the comfort of her own time, just in case she was to go into labor at any time. Unfortunatly for Inu-Yasha, she prefered it if he wasn't around her all the time, so that he could have some time to himself before the baby was born. And if he was to go back, he wouldn't get any ramen for a week and he'd get 'osuwari'ed. And he didn't want that to happen. But he didn't want anything to happen to his Kagome, either. Maybe he'd go might some youkai until later, since it was going to be a new moon tonight. Eh, just to be safe, he'd better stay around the village. Wait, a minute. "Just to be safe"? Where the hell did that come from? What was wrong with him, lately? He hadn't fought a youkai since the panther.

"It's because you're in love with Kagome and you wanna make her happy, baka." Inu-Yasha told himself out loud. With that, he jumped into a tree near Kaede's house and slept for the remainder of the day.

When Inu-Yasha woke up, he was human. Oh, well. He jumped down from the tree, but because of his drowziness, he stumbled when he landed. He looked around into the night. Okay, something was going on, he could sense it. And it wasn't the fact that Miroku was trying to feel Sango in the middle of darkness. Something else.

"Could it be Kagome?" he thought. He jogged towards the bone-eater's well and got ready to jump in. "Wait, what if she gets mad and O-word's me?" He mentally slapped himself. "Oh, yeah, I forgot: I'm not a hanyou right now." So he jumped right in.

He popped his head out of the well and ran into Kagome's house. The first thing he heard were sirens.

"Kagome?!" He seen the ambulance and chased after it. He followed the sirens until he reached the hospital. He couldn't get in through the emergency door, for it was so crowded, so he had to go in the other way. He ended up running around, blindly through the halls, until eventually he heard his name being screamed out.

"INU-YASHA!!!" echoed throughout the halls. Inu-Yasha eventually found the room Kagome was in. A group of doctors were surrounding her. A doctor brushed passed Inu-Yasha and he quickly grabbed his shoulder.

"Is something wrong with her?!" Inu-Yasha asked.

"Well, Ectopic pregnancies are usually caused by conditions that slow the passage of a fertilized egg through the Fallopian tube to the uterus." he explained. "This may be caused by a physical blockage in the tube, or by failure of the tubal epithelium to move the zygote down the tube and into the uterus."

"I have no idea what the hell you just said. All I wanna know is is Kagome gonna be okay?"

"Well, most cases result of scarring caused by previous tubal infection or tubal surgery. Up to 50% of women with ectopic pregnancies have a medical history of pelvic inflammatory disease. Some ectopic pregnancies can be traced to natural--"

He ran passed the doctor to go to Kagome. "Kagome?"

"Inu-Yasha!" he heard her strain to yell. He eventually reached her and grabbed her hand. "Are you alright?"

"Oh yeah! This is like a day at the beach! Aah! NO, I'M NOT ALRIGHT!!" she yelled in his ear. "Inu-Yasha--AH!"

"You're gonna be okay!" He kissed her cheek. "Gomen, I'm late!"

"It's...o...kay...!" She eventually cried out in pain a few times, afterwards a doctor announced that the baby's head was out.

"Why are you giving birth here?" Inu-Yasha asked. "Wouldn't it be easier if you did it in a quieter place, like a barn hayloft or something?"

"Are you INSANE?!" Kagome shouted. "AAAHHHHH!!!"

"C'mon, Kagome! Once more! You're almost done!" Inu-Yasha urged. She screamed out once more, before everyone began crying out with joy. While the doctors cleaned off the sobbing baby, Inu-Yasha and Kagome kissed each other. He wiped the sweat off of her face with his yukata sleeve and had her rest her head on his shoulder. The doctor handed over their child, that was wrapped in a soft pink blanket.

"And here is your baby girl." The doctor smiled. Inu-Yasha kissed Kagome's lips and stared down at the kodamo.

"What should we name her?" Kagome asked, craddeling the akanbo. She eventually opened her large, brown eyes.

"She looks kinda like you." Inu-Yasha said, stroking his daughter's cheek with his knuckle. She grabbed it with her free hand. "Like a mirror-image."

"Mirror..." Kagome whispered. "Kagami."

"Kagami's a good name." Inu-Yasha said.

"Hai, but it's too much like mine." she said. "Can you imagine? Kagome and Kagami?"

"Who wouldn't want a name like yours? You have a pretty name. I wish I was named Kagome."

"No, you don't."

"You're right." he grinned, as Kagome shoved her arm into his head. "Uh, Kikan is a good name."

"Kikan..." Kagome tried the name out. "Hai...That is a good name."

After three days of recuperating in the hospital, Kagome went back home with Inu-Yasha and Kikan. Kagome's grandpa was thrilled about seeing his great-grandaughter before he died; Souta being an uncle; her Mother wasn't too thrilled about being a grandmother, but was still happy if Kagome was.

The next day, Kagome and Inu-Yasha took Kikan to Sengoku Jidai to introduce her to everyone. When they first walked through Kaede's door, the room was filled with "Ooh"s and "Aah"s. "Aww!" Sango squealed. "She's so cute! What did you name her?"

"Kikan." Kagome smiled, handing her baby over to Sango. "This is your Sango- oba, Kikan." Shippou jumped onto Sango's shoulder and peered down at the akanbo.

"She IS cute!" Shippou exclaimed, letting Kikan grip his paw. After getting the baby's death-grip off of his fingers, Shippou leaped into Kagome's arms and gave her a huge hug.

"Now wouldn't this be a picture-perfect moment?" Miroku asked, wrapping his arms around Sango, while she still held the baby. He brought their bodies too close for comfort and Sango wanted to slap him so bladly, but she'd drop Kikan, so she just let him embrace her.

"In your dreams, hoshi." Sango mumbled, blushing deep red.

"What's your problem, Sango?" Inu-Yasha asked, the same rudeness in his voice as before. "You're more uptight, than usual."

"That's because Miroku kissed her square on the lips the other night." Shippou said. "They've been playing some kind of game more often than usual."

"What kind of game?" he asked.

"I dunno. They said it was some kind of game, but I don't know of any games that have anything to do with someone stroking someone's legs and wait five minutes before that person gets slapped." Sango and Miroku looked at him evilly and Inu-Yasha and Kagome got the picture and exchanged sly looks on their faces.

About a week later, Kagome decided to still bring her schoolwork home so that she could take care of Kikan. Inu-Yasha was asleep on the couch, using Kagome's lap as a pillow, while she read through her science book. It was around 1:00 p.m. and Kikan was crying for her afternoon feeding. Kagome still wasn't used to breast feeding and begged her Mom to have another baby with someone, so that she didn't have to do it, but...it was her responsibility. After petting the sleeping Inu-Yasha's ears, Kagome walked into the new baby room, that was painted pink and had tons of white sheep and kittens all over the place, and over to the crib Kikan was lying in. She went to pick her daughter up and gasped when she seen two small black floppy dog ears sprouting from Kikan's head.

"Inu-Yasha!" Kagome whispered, loud enough to be heard. "You should come and see this!"
