A/N Oh my goodness! Last chapter! Eep! But right after this is- Project Hanyou X and you can count on my posting daily (except if I have something else to do- which is rare- or Sundays. I don't work on my fanfics on Sunday.) If you are wondering why I update so often, well, I'm a house wife. My house isn't too hard to clean and my baby daughter is fairly easy to take care of. I just have to put on Veggie Tales and she is content, but anywho-

Disclaimer- I'm not brilliant enough to own neither Inuyasha nor his cute ears! :*( Nor and I Tim Burton and own any of his fantastic ideas!

And the Finale: Forever Love:

Kagome was shivering in the cold rain that poured on her and the lifeless hanyou. She couldn't bring herself to let go. But warmth didn't leave him. Why isn't he pale, cold and stiff? But yet he's not breathing nor does he have a heartbeat. Even though he was lifeless, she started to talk to him,

"Inuyasha. I love you. I will forever love you. You died without feeling my love to it's fullest. Why now?"

She began to sob again,

"I love you! But you are dead! You are-"

"I'm not dead"

She heard a faint voice come from the body she held. Her eyes widened with hope, but she didn't want to check of any vital signs. She didn't want to be hearing things, but then she heard.

"Kagome? Why are you crying?"

It WAS him! Kagome quickly looked at his face to see his eyes. The eyes she thought she'd never see again.Then his chest started to rise and fall. She looked deep into his amber eyes. He looked at her sadly.

"Why are you crying!?"

"You were dead!"

"No I wasn't."

"Then how come you weren't breathing or have a heartbeat?"

He felt so bad. She really must have thought he was dead. Her eyes were mixed with sadness, shock, and disbelief.

"Well, I'm sorry. I thought I told you! Hanyous heal faster then humans!"

He sat up, but was still in her lap and leaned on her for support.

"You were dead!" She cried

"Well, Youkai, unless their brain is no longer able to function-but with hanyous it's also if or there is no more blood- the body is able to shut down to heal any mortally fatal wounds."

"So you weren't dead?"

"No, just recuperating."

Her face scrunched up as she was choking back her tears. She felt like she wouldn't be able to breath unless she let go. Inuyasha stared at her. He had more pain inside from making her suffer than the pain he felt while his organs and lungs were finishing their healing. He grabbed her and shushed her as she was hysterically crying. Though healing, he felt faint from losing to much blood. Inuyasha started to feel faint.

"Kagome, I feel faint, don't worry, I'm not going to die, but if I don't stop bleeding--- (Thanks for the advice Kenkaya!)

"Inuyasha?" She panicked until she saw he was still breathing. She needed to call someone and fast, but before she could pick up the phone, someone kicked it. She looked up.

"Kikyou!" She growled.

"What? Aren't you happy to see me?"

"Kikyou! Leave us alone! I have to go get the**gently laid Inuyasha down as she crawled toward the phone** Phone!"

Then Kikyou casually walked up to her and kicked her in the stomach. Kagome rolled onto her side, holding her stomach.

"I think I'll take this!"

She said as she picked up the phone and put it in her pocket. Kagome quickly stood up, trying not to double over.

"Kikyou! Give that back! Please give it back! Inuyasha needs help!"

Kagome pleaded as she reached out to her.

"Like I care? It would be better just for that freak to die!"

She hissed. Kagome was puzzled.

"I thought you liked him?"

"Well, I did, but he got too attached to you."

"Why would that matter?"

"Because I hate you with all my being!"

Kagome froze at this.

"Why do you hate me? I've been nothing but nice to you. I've done absolutely nothing to you!"

"One word Kagome, Jealousy."

Kagome put her hand over her heart and softly asked,

"Why would you, The Student Body President, Honor Roll, Head Cheerleader be jealous of little, plain me?"

Kikyou shot a sharp look at Kagome and began walking around her.

"Everyone likes you, you have a family that loves you and is proud of you. I see you with your mother! You two are so close it makes me sick! Then the only guy I truly had a crush on, Kouga, was too obsessed with you to even look at me!"

"Then why did you try to help him spilt Inuyasha and I apart? Why did you frame Inuyasha?"

"Because I knew no matter what the plan was, he could never get you, plus any plan to hurt Inuyasha I was in because if he gets hurt---So do you!"

"Do you really hate me that much!? I didn't know about all that stuff! You know you could always ta---"

"---No! I would rather die than talk to you in such a fashion!"

Kagome was hurt by all this. She was unintentionally causing Kikyou pain.

"I'm sorry!" She cried.

"Yah, you will be! It looks like your freak show lover isn't going to last long!"

Kagome looked over as Inuyasha. He was still breathing, but he was becoming pale as she saw the river of blood that flowed from him.

"No! I won't let it happen! Kikyou! Give me the phone! I beg of you!"

Kikyou laughed at the pathetic display Kagome was putting on.

"No! I want to watch that freak die. I want to see him stop breathing. I want to see you mourning over his body!"

"You need help!" Kagome said in a disgusted voice. But with one more look at Inuyasha, She lunged a Kikyou. Kikyou dodge her and ran again. Kagome froze.

"I don't want to leave him alone, but he needs help."

She ran into the forest after Kikyou for the second time tonight. She ran through the rain and the trees that were vulnerable to the lightning, but then she couldn't see it at first, but just as she stopped, she was at the edge of a cliff. She ran back as Kikyou tried to push her over it. Kagome rolled out of the way.

"You knew this cliff was here! You lead me here! You and Kouga can't stand competition! "

Kagome yelled as she got back up. In a lightning flash, Kagome saw the evil grin on Kikyou's face. Kagome was paralyzed.

'Oh my---! She's trying to kill me!' She thought as she just stared at Kikyou in horror.

"Isn't it beautiful, Kagome? Soon you and Inuyasha will live together in death!" Kikyou hissed with an evil grin.

'Jeesh! This has been quite the night!' Kagome tried to joke to herself. But there was no joke about Kikyou trying to kill her. Though her life was in danger, all that was on her mind was Inuyasha. She needed to live for him. Kikyou threw the phone into the woods and lunged at Kagome, but before she could dodge it, Kikyou pushed her over the cliff. Luckily she caught the edge. Kikyou looked over the edge.

"Well, Kagome, looks like this is it!"

She said as she knelt by Kagome, about to pry her fingers from the edge. The rain had softened the edge and the earth gave way, sending both her and Kagome down with it, but before she could fall, Kagome grabbed onto a tree root and hung on. She looked over. Kikyou was gone. Kagome looked down. It was dark and deep. There was no way that she lived. Kagome felt so sorry for her, but with all the strength she had, she climbed up the root and pulled herself over the top. Without a second thought, she ran to find the phone. Luckily it's silver case reflected off the lightning. She grabbed it.

"Please hold on Inuyasha!"

She ran back to Inuyasha. He was still alive, but barely. Without hesitation, she called her mom.

**************************************************************************

They finally made it to the emergency room, Surprised that Kagome and her mom was carrying a half-dead, half dog demon, people stared.

"I'll handle the paperwork, you stay with him!"

Kagome's mother told her. She nodded as she held Inuyasha in her arms in the waiting room. His legs stretched acrossed 3 chairs as Kagome held his torso. People starred at them. Kagome smiled.

"He was dressed up for a play and fainted!"

She lied, but that went out of the window when his ears twitched. She was very excited to see his ears twitch, but people in the hospital gasped. Finally doctors came in with a stretcher. When they saw him, they gasped. After they put him on the stretcher, she ran up to the doctor in the white coat.

"Um, Sir, please don't call the government or anything. He's harmless and well---I love him!"

"Then what are those wounds?"

"He saved me from a cougar"

"Well, your friend will get all set up, meanwhile, we should bandage those up for you"

He smiled as he led her down a hallway. She really didn't want to leave him, but bandaging her wounds wouldn't take long.

***********************************************************************

Finally Kagome was at his side. He had bandages where Kouga had cut him. He was hooked up to monitors and an I.V. He was asleep, but the heart monitor showed a weak heartbeat. She sat by him playing with his bangs and rubbing on his ears. Then she stood up quickly when the doctor came in. Kagome's eyes sparkled,

"What's wrong? Will he live?"

The doctor read his charts.

"Well, to say one thing, your friend there is absolutely incredible! He has triple the red blood cells we have and his wounds are healing fast and fine, but he needs more blood. Unfortunately we don't have anybody with---"

"I'll do it!" Kagome yelled.

"But we don't even know his blood type!"

"Well, I'm type O- !" (A/N: For those who haven't had biology, O- can be administered to any blood type , please read note at the end of the chapter)

"With your low red blood cell count and you've lost enough blood al-

"I'LL DO IT!"

"I'm not even sure if it would work, but it's the only option we've got."

Kagome hated needles, but for Inuyasha, she'd do it. They lead her into a room with a needle hooked to a tube and a bag. She felt faint.

***************************************************************************

Kagome sat in a wheelchair with a cotton ball and a band-aid over her needle mark. She was in a hospital gown because of the blood on her outfit would be considered "Bio Hazardous". She kissed Inuyasha's forehead as they began to administer her blood to him.

"How long before it starts to work?"

Kagome's mother asked. She had Inuyasha's other hand. She loved Inuyasha too, like an elder son, though she would have to have been 17 when she would have given birth to him.

"It can take effect immediately to a few hours- if it works. It depends on him."

Kagome laid on his stomach until Inuyasha started to shake violently.

"Oh my --! What's happening!?"

The doctor yelled, "I don't know!"

But before he could stop the blood flow, they all watched as Inuyasha's claws shortened and his dog ears disappeared.

"Wait doctor! Don't stop the blood!"

The heart monitor was going crazy until finally, he stopped convulsing.

"Inuyasha?" Kagome whispered.

Inuyasha slowly opened his eyes. They were still amber, his hair still white.

"What the hell just happened?" he said as he felt his head. Kagome hugged him.

"Oh, Inuyasha! You are alive!"

He closed his eyes and embraced her lovingly.

"Baka! I told you I wouldn't die!"

"Did you just call me Baka?"

Inuyasha smiled, and then kissed her.

Kagome's mother and the nurses gushed.

"I love you" She whispered into his ear, which was now in human position.

Inuyasha noticed this. He felt on top of his head, felt his teeth, then looked at his hands.

"Am I human?"

Kagome smiled, but then asked, "But the why isn't your hair black and your eyes brown?"

"Beats me!" He shrugged. He kinda of felt bad and lowered his head.

"What's wrong?"

"If I'm not hanyou, how can I protect you?"

She smiled, "You don't have to be! You can still protect me as a human!"

Then Kagome's mother asked, "How did this happen?"

Kagome then answered, "The human blood must have over ruled the Youkai blood and it affected him!"

"Extraordinary!" The doctor exclaimed. Kagome begged the doctor and nurses to keep it a secret. The nurses agreed right away. It took the doctor a bit longer.

Then Inuyasha had a thought,

'Now that I'm human, I don't have to be persecuted anymore! I'm not a monster!'

He hugged Kagome.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

To Kagome and Inuyasha's delight, they found that he still had his demon powers of smelling, hearing, strength and Kagome's favorite, jumping. They flew through the forest like they used to. Kagome flying up high on the back of her only love for life. He took her to the top of a mountain where they saw the city perfectly.

"Kagome?"

"Yes?"

She said being held by him as they sat at the top of the mountain.

"What are we going to do now?"

Kagome looked at him.

"What do you mean?"

He stood up with her, still holding her. They both looked over the city with their hair blowing in the breeze.

"Well, I mean, you are still the only love for me, but now that I'm accepted in public, are you still going to think I'm special?"

Kagome looked at him and played with on of those separate strands of hair that hang in front of his ears. He looked down at her with almost an intoxicated look.

"Well, for one thing, you aren't exactly normal! Common! How many people do you know that have white long hair and amber eyes. I don't know of any, and you are always special! Inuyasha. I love you for who you are! You are the most precious thing on this earth that belongs to my heart! You always will be! Just because you lost those puppy-dog ears, which I admit I will miss, and your fangs and claws doesn't mean my feelings for you have changed!"

He smiled,

"I Love you Kagome! You are my Forever Love!

She stared at him and nodded quickly. He stared at her and kissed her.

********************And They Lived Happily Ever After************************

The End!

Oh, and on the full moon, he'd get his demon appendages back.

**sigh** Whew! I'm finished! I hope you all liked it! Oh- My note-

Note- If you have type O- blood and if you are over 17, please donate your blood! There is a shortage and like I said, O- can be given to anyone. If you are scared of needles, here's my technique. I take medication and plus when I was pregnant, I had my blood taken all the time! Oh

IF YOU HATE NEEDLES, DON"T GET PREGANT!

They take so much blood from you. Even one time, they took 6 vials! But anyway, my technique:

Look away and tell the person that is taking it from you to tell you when they are about to stick you. When they do, take a quick, long breathe out. It works every time for me!

But thank you and tell your friends about my story please! I may take a few days off before starting on Hanyou Project X. But keep an eye on my profile for it!

Kudos till then!

I love you all!
