Friend or Foe ofLove?

-Shikon

Is it too late?
Nothing to salvage
You look away
Clear of the damage
The meaning to
Our words of love
Has disappeared

Centuries since their past selves missed their chance at true happiness, Sango and Miroku were now walking pass each other, not remembering anything of their love for each other in the Feudal Era. Only knowing that they were best of friends since they were children, the past was not interfering with their lives or their work until they had to and began to have déjà vu.

We used to love one another
Give to each other
Lie undercover so,
Are you friend or foe

They were each other's lovers but not held to each other by any other means other than to sleep with each other and satisfy their sexual cravings. In a world were true love was myth and nothing was pure any more, all they saw was an escape from the world inside each other under the covers of their own personal realm.

Love one another
Live for each other
So are you friend or foe
'Cause I used to know

It was one of those nights that they "needed" each other to satisfy their desires, but something was different when they did it. Something happened that neither of them expected it would happen. They were "just friends" who shouldn't have expected anything from each other.

The promises
Hollow concessions
And innocent
Show of affection
I touch your hand
A hologram
Are you still there?

Miroku awoke in his bed, alone and naked. Nothing of Sango remained in his room, not even her car or forgotten lingerie. Sango was gone…no where to be found except on his cell phone.
"Sango?" he called out in a whisper at first as he picked his cell and called her.

We used to love one another
Give to each other
Lie undercover so,
Are you friend or foe?

Sango answered her phone and did her best to sound calm and collected despite having cried since she got home soon after they had their night. "Sango, is something wrong?" Miroku asked and denied anything amiss. "Sango…"
"I have to go," she told him abruptly and hung up.

Love one another
Live for each other
So are you friend or foe?
'Cause I used to know

Left confused, Miroku could do nothing but wait for Sango to open up to him and tell him what was wrong. He checked his belongings and found what was amiss. A small note with Sango's name, not in Sango's writing, saying that she was to be married to someone in large print on the present day and underneath in Sango's writing but smaller print was the phrase, "I love you, Miroku."

Is it too late
Nothing to salvage
You look away
Clear of the damage
The meaning to
Our words of love
Has disappeared

Memories of a distant past began to flash through Miroku's mind and he raced to get dressed and into his car, driving as fast as he could legally, to Sango's home where her little brother, Kohaku, told him exactly where to find her. He was not losing Sango a second lifetime; he refused to live without Sango again. If not with body language, then with words.

We used to love one another
Give to each other
Lie under covers so,
Are you friend or foe

Sango knew that Miroku wouldn't wait up early enough realize his feelings for her. She was all right with being found out too late, but still, this would be the second time that Miroku didn't say what he truly thought of her and that he would be too late. He had left her all alone in the palace with the emperor that she still called "Snotty-Nose" long after they were wed. Would this lifetime be any different?

Love one another
Live for each other
So are you friend or foe
'Cause I used to know

Before the priest could lay down the last of the wedding vows, Miroku burst into the church and stopped the wedding, stealing the bride. "I will no longer be satisfied with just being your friend and I won't be your foe, Sango," Miroku told her as a matter of fact. "I do hope it's not too late, this time." Sango blushed and shook her head, telling him he was right on time.


Shikon: Chapter…THREE! BUT it's takes place in the FUTURE (Ahs and Ohs) since the first two took place in the PAST….no Kag/Inu in this chapter. OKAY! This story is "officially" OVER! I feel like rewriting this to try and make it better...
