Chapter 25

Inuyasha brought down Tetsuiga, sending a wave of energy from it.

The energy from the sword rushed towards a pile of old, dusty crates and totally destroyed them. Pieces of board fell to the floor with a clatter. And standing where the crates had once been, stood Naraku with a calm, placid look on his face.

"It seems you have found me." He said in a low voice. He calmly stepped away from the wreckage of the crate.

Kagome was uneasy. Naraku never gave up easily, so why was he now? "Be careful, Inuyasha. He's planning something." She said as she stepped up to the hanyou's side.

Inuyasha smirked. "What can he be planning? He's beat and he knows it." He said, keeping his sword pointed at the red eyed man.

Naraku lowered his head. "Beat, am I?" He asked and began to chuckle softly. "We'll see how beat I am." He said and lifted his head up, his blood red eyes flashing.

Kagome gasped at the amount of pain she was suddenly feeling. She fell to her knees, clutching at her side and crying out in pain.

"Kagome!" Inuyasha called her name and was instantly at her side, crouching down beside her. He could sense Kagome was in pain, but he didn't see any wounds on her body that might be causing her pain. "Kagome, what's wrong?" Inuyasha asked, concern clearly on his face.

Kagome couldn't speak because of the immense pain that was coming from her side.

Naraku smirked. "I have found the Shikon no Tama, little miko." He said. Naraku held out his right hand and Kagome's body suddenly shot off of the floor and floated in the air.

Naraku slowly closed his hand and Kagome cried out in pain as her entire body was engulfed by a sudden bright pink light.



A small, pink sphere appeared just above Kagome's body and the light that had once surrounded Kagome's body disappeared and she began to fall towards the floor.

Inuyasha rushed over and caught Kagome gently in his arms. The smell of blood reached his sensitive nose. He check Kagome over until he found a wound on her side, just below her rib cage.

It was bleeding heavily and soon had soaked the entire side of Kagome's shirt with blood.

Inuyasha one of his shirt sleeves off and covered her wound with it, gently applying pressure to it. Trying to stop the flow of blood coming from it.

Naraku wasn't paying attention to the two. His eyes were trained on the Shikon no Tama, staring greedily at it. He opened his hand again and the small, innocent looking jewel flew towards him and landed in his hand.

He brought the jewel up to his face. "The Shikon no Tama. A jewel of pure power." He said as he held the jewel.

Kagome winched from the pain in her side. "How did you know where the jewel was?" She asked and winched again as Inuyasha applied more pressure.

Naraku turned his head and looked at her, as if just now noticing that she and Inuyasha was there. He smirked. "You let your guard down when you were warning that half breed. When you were worrying about him and trying to warn him, you let your concentration slip and I could sense the jewels power." He said, closing his fist around the jewel.

When he re-opened his hand, a chain had appeared around the jewel and Naraku placed it over his head and let it rest around his neck.

He made his hands into fists and closed his eyes. "I can already feel the jewels power coursing through my body." He said, relishing the feel of power rushing through his body.

Inuyasha gently picked Kagome up and carried her over to the far side of the building and sat her down. "Don't move." He instructed as he straightened.

Kagome looked up at him. "Be careful." She said.

Inuyasha nodded his head and gave her a confident smirk. He picked up the Tetsuiga and sprinted back to battle with Naraku.

"Are you prepared to die, Naraku?" He asked as he readied his sword.

Naraku opened his eyes and smirked. "I should be asking you that, half breed." He said.

A sudden wind began to pick up in the building, blowing Inuyasha's silver hair off to the side, as did Naraku's hair.

Inuyasha could sense that Naraku's power was growing. He lunged at Naraku, trying to get at him before he could bring his power to its full strength. But before he was even close enough to make a swipe with his claws, thick, dark brown roots came shooting out of the ground in front of Naraku, making a sort of shield.

The roots shot up wards and then began to fall back to earth with sharp tips pointed right at Inuyasha.

Inuyasha dodged the roots just as the came crashing into the concrete floor, destroying it completely.

"Iron Rever Soul Stealer!" He yelled and brought his claws down as white energy came from them, sending it flying towards the roots and destroying most of them.

But more only came to replace the ones that he had destroyed and they came rushing at him.

Inuyasha dodged them once more, but was struck from behind by Naraku. He cried out in pain and turned his head to see a small dagger sticking out of his left shoulder.

He landed on the ground and pulled the dagger out of his shoulder. He threw the dagger on the ground and glared at Naraku. "You bastard." He snarled as blood dripped from his shoulder and on to the floor.

Naraku's eyes flashed. "Like I told you earlier, half breed. The first rule in battle is to never turn your back on your opponent." He said as he walked over and picked up the discarded, bloody dagger.

"Humans are so inferior, yet they make such useful weapons." He said and let the dagger fall back to the floor.

Inuyasha growled lowly. "I'm getting tired of listening to you talk!" He yelled and lunged at Naraku, moving so quickly that to a regular human eyes he was nothing more than a blur.

Naraku simply smirked and raised his hand and his finger nails began to lengthen. They suddenly shot from his hand and pierced Inuyasha's injured shoulder, piercing it all the way through.

Inuyasha cried out in pain and fell hard to his knees. His left arm was now completely useless. Blood ran from the wound, down his arm and dripped off of his hand to form a puddle of red liquid.

"Are you ready to surrender yet?" He asked in a calm tone, almost sounding like he was enjoying this. He probably was.

Inuyasha staggered to his feet. "Never, you bastard! I would rather die than surrender to the likes of you." He snarled.

Naraku smirked. "I was hoping that is what your answer would be." He said and lifted his hand again.

Another root came shooting out of the ground and wrapped itself around Inuyasha's middle, squeezing like a snake does a mouse.

Inuyasha tried to struggle his way free, but the roots grip only tightened around him, making next to impossible for him to breath. He cried out in pain when he felt one of his ribs 'crack' loudly.

**

Kagome cringed when she heard the 'crack' of Inuyasha's ribs as one of them broke.

She could see the look of pain on his handsome face and her heart went out to him.

'I've got to help him.' She thought. She pushed herself to her feet and began to stagger towards Inuyasha. But she stopped when a thought suddenly struck her mind. 'I can't defeat him. He's to strong with the Shikon no Tama.'

Kagome began to think of all the spells and incantations she had learned during her years of training of being a miko.

She only knew of one spell that would help in this situation. It would take all of her miko power and her physical energy and it could even possibly kill her. But she couldn't let this monster called Naraku live.

She quickly made her way over to the root that was constricting Inuyasha and she laid her hands on it. Sending purifying power through her hands an into the root.

The root began to shrivel up and it released its grip on Inuyasha, causing him to fall to the ground with a 'thud'.

Kagome made her way over to Inuyasha, winching as the wound in her side began to bleed again. She knelt down by the hanyou and helped him sit up.

"Inuyasha, are you alright?" She asked, a worried expression on her face.

Inuyasha opened his amber colored eyes and saw Kagome's face. He frowned. "I thought I told you not to move!" He said and sat up.

Kagome couldn't help the small giggle that escaped her lips. "I couldn't just sit over there and watch while you were getting hurt by Naraku." She said.

She inspected the wound in Inuyasha's shoulder. "This is bad. I don't have to be a doctor to tell you that." She said.

Inuyasha gently pushed away her hand. "Feh, its nothing that won't heal." He said in his usual arrogant self.

Kagome smiled at him, then got a serious look on her face. "Inuyasha, Naraku is next to impossible to defeat now that he has the jewel." She began and stood up.

Inuyasha stood also. "I'll figure out some way to defeat him." He said and retrieved his sword that had reverted back to a normal sword.

Kagome laid a hand on his un-injured shoulder. "I have already figured it out." She said as he turned to face her.

"How?" Inuyasha asked, his full attention now on Kagome. They were hidden from Naraku's view by the large, shriveled up root.

Kagome looked into his amber eyes. "I know a spell I can do. It will drain Naraku of his power and make him powerless and easy to defeat. I'll just need him to be distracted for a few minutes while I prepare the spell." She said, still looking into Inuyasha's eyes.

Inuyasha nodded his head in understanding. "Will do." He said. He hesitated for a moment then quickly leaned in and caught Kagome's lips in a soft kiss.

Kagome barely had time to register what was going on before Inuyasha had broke away and jumped over the tree root and she heard the battle between him and Naraku resume.

She brought her hand up and touched her lips. 'Wow, he kissed me.' She thought dreamily. She suddenly shook her head, angry with herself. 'Snap out of it! Now is not the time to go all ga ga! I've gotta help Inuyasha!' She scolded herself and began to chant the spell.

She heard Inuyasha cry out just as she finished chanting the spell. She stood, letting her miko power float her over the root that block her view of Inuyasha and Naraku.

Inuyasha had been knocked to the floor, a gash could be seen through the torn fabric of his pants.

Naraku looked at her with a smirk. "Ah, the little miko has decided yo save me the trouble of searching for her.

"You're a coward!" Kagome yelled at him, trying to get him angry. The spell would not work unless Naraku used his powers against her.

Naraku raised an eyebrow at her. "A coward, am I? And why, might I ask, am I a coward? I seem the one to be winning the battle. I was not the one who was in hiding through mist of this battle. All in all, it seems that you are the coward, miko." He said in a placid sounding voice.

Kagome fought not to loose her temper. "You are a coward! You use these roots and these bees instead of your own power!" She retorted.

Naraku once again raised his brow. "I shall prove I am not a coward." He said, his voice slightly irritated. Naraku raised both of his hands and sent black power flying towards Kagome.

Kagome felt a grim smile come over her face. 'Perfect.' She thought as she quickly raised her own pink glowing hands.

Dark energy collided with pure energy.

Kagome's softly pink glowing hands began to absorbed the energy coming from Naraku.

"What's this?!" Naraku yelled as he tried to cut off his attack, but he failed.

It was like Kagome was sucking the energy right out of him with this one attack of his. "Release me!" He yelled and tried to stop his attack.

Kagome could feel herself begin to weaken and her miko power ebb away. 'Just a few more minutes.' She thought and fought to keep her body from shaking from exhaustion.

Kagome felt the last of Naraku's energy flow from his body. "Inuyasha, now!" She called out to the hanyou.

Inuyasha summoned his hanyou energy and pushed himself to a standing position, ignoring the pain in his shoulder and his leg. He picked up the Tetsuiga and rushed at Naraku. "Die!" He yelled as he sliced downward with his sword.

Naraku screamed in defeat as the Tetsuiga's energy pierced his body, disintegrating it to nothing but a pile of ash and smoke.

Inuyasha smirked and turned to face Kagome. But his face changed quickly to one of worry and concern as he saw Kagome.

She was laying on the ground, her eyes closed and Inuyasha could not tell if she was breathing or not.

He dropped the sword to the ground and rushed over to Kagome. He fell to his knees, close to her head.

"Kagome?" He questioned as gently took the woman in his arms. He brought his hand up to her neck and sighed in relief when he found Kagome's pulse. And if he listened closely he could hear her heart beating strongly.

"Kagome?" He called her name again, gently shaking her.

Kagome groaned slightly and her eyes fluttered open, revealing her beautiful brown eyes. "In-Inuyasha?" She stammered slightly as she focused her eyes on his face.

Inuyasha nodded his head and brushed a strand of her shiny black hair out of her face. "What were you thinking? Are you crazy? You could've been killed!" He scolded, but his words were not harsh. They were soft and worried sounding.

"Did we get him?" Kagome replied with a question of her own.

Inuyasha smiled softly down at her and nodded his head. "Yeah, we got him good." He replied, rubbing her cheek with his hand.

Kagome smiled softly. "That's good." She said. She frowned as she looked at Inuyasha's still bleeding shoulder. "What about you? Are you alright?" She asked, her voice filled with concern.

Inuyasha gave her a confident smirk. "Yeah, I'm fine. Its just a scratch." He replied and sat Kagome up in a sitting position.

Kagome's soft smile returned. "I'm glad that your okay, Inuyasha." She whispered as her brown eyes slowly drifted shut.

Inuyasha also smiled as he scooped the raven haired girl up in his arms and placed the Tetsuiga back in its sheath. "I'm glad your okay, too, Kagome." He said and began to walk out of the building.

~*~Five days later~*~

Inuyasha walked out of his house and on to his front porch. He stopped in the doorway, watching the beautiful woman on his porch swing scratch Demon's ears.

Kagome lifted her head up and caught Inuyasha's eye and she smiled warmly at him.

Inuyasha was about to return the smile, but it turned into a frown as he heard the sound of running feet coming from behind him.

Before he could move out of the way, a little body threw itself around his neck, nearly knocking him over.

"Hiya, Inuyasha!" A little boys voice said happily.

Kagome stifled a laugh as she watch Shippo climb on Inuyasha's shoulders.

Inuyasha rolled his eyes. After Kagome had woken up at the hospital after the battle with Naraku, Shippo had been ecstatic.

Inuyasha saw the bond that the miko and the small child had formed. So, he had made a few phone calls and had gotten to adopt Shippo on one condition.

Inuyasha reached up and lifted Shippo off of his shoulders. "Hey, runt." He said as he ruffled the boys red hair.

Shippo giggled.

Inuyasha sat Shippo down on the ground. "Why don't you take Demon in the house and feed him?" He suggested.

Shippo nodded his head. "Okay. C'mon, Demon!" He called and the large Great Dane came rushing after Shippo as he ran into the house.

Inuyasha smiled and walked over to Kagome, who was now standing by the porch railing, watching the sun as it slowly set out over the country side.

Inuyasha walked up behind her and wrapped his arms around her waist.

Kagome sighed happily and leaned back against Inuyasha's strong, muscular chest.

Inuyasha glanced down at Kagome's happy face. "Kagome, are you happy here with me?" He asked, sounding a bit nervous.

Kagome glanced up at his unsure sounding voice. "Of course I'm happy here with you. I've never been so happy in my life. And I can say that now and know that it's the truth." She said with a slight giggle.

Inuyasha brought his hands up on Kagome's shoulders and turned her to face him. He still seemed extremely nervous. "Kagome, do you love me?" He asked, beginning to fidget.

Kagome gave him a quizzical look but answered him with confidence. "Of course I love you, Inuyasha. You are my life now." She said and brought her hand up and caressed his cheek gently.

Inuyasha leaned his face into her soft hand before he pulled back and looked into her eyes. "I love you too, Kagome. I want to ask you something." He said, sounding more nervous than he did in the beginning.

Kagome was know throughly confused by the way Inuyasha was acting. "What do you want to ask me, Inuyasha?" She asked and tilted her head to the side.

Inuyasha swallowed loudly and took Kagome's right hand in his. "Kagome, I love you more than life itself. You are my everything. You are my present, my future, my life." He paused there and played with Kagome's ring finger.

He reached his left hand into his pocket and pulled out a small velvet box.

Kagome's eyes were beginning misty and she covered her mouth with her left hand. "Inuyasha." She whispered his name.

Inuyasha opened the box to reveal a small golden band with three small diamonds. "Kagome, I want to spend today, tomorrow, and forever with you. Will you be my mate? Will you marry me?" He asked, keeping his eyes trained on Kagome's beautiful face.

Kagome chocked back a sob as tears slid slowly down her face. "Inuyasha!" She cried happily and lunged herself at him, wrapping her arms around his neck in a death grip.

Inuyasha smiled softly and wrapped his arms around her waist. "Does this mean yes?" He asked, still smiling down at his soon-to-be-mate.

Kagome laughed and pulled back slightly. "It does, you silly puppy." She said, her face beaming with happiness.

Inuyasha smiled and slowly leaned down towards her face, locking his lips with Kagome's soft lips.

The kiss was long, loving, and full of promises for the future that they would have together.

"Does this mean that I'm gonna have a mama and a papa again?" A voice asked behind them.

Kagome and Inuyasha turned around to see Shippo, his head tilted to the side in question.

Kagome laughed again and motioned for the child to come over to them.

Shippo, exited to be included in the embrace, ran towards them and jumped into Kagome's arms, snuggling between her and Inuyasha.

"It sure does mean you have a mama and papa." Kagome replied to his question softly, her eyes shining with happiness.

Inuyasha was also smiling softly at the two. He ruffled Shippo's red hair softly. "Yeah, so you better learn to stay out of trouble, runt." He said, trying to sound gruff, but not succeeding.

Shippo smiled then suddenly launched himself at Inuyasha and wrapped his small arms around his neck tightly. "What ever you say... Papa." He said and let go of Inuyasha's neck just as quickly as he had hugged him. Shippo ran out to the yard and began to play with Demon.

Inuyasha shook his head and wrapped his arms once again around Kagome's waist, nuzzling her neck and making her giggle.

Kagome leaned back against him, sighing in contentment. 'I have a family again. I have Sango, who's turned into something like an older sister to me, Miroku, Sesshomaru, Rin, Shippo,' and here she looked up at Inuyasha. 'I've got Inuyasha.' She thought.

Inuyasha could feel that Kagome was staring at him. He glanced down and smiled at her.

Kagome returned the smile. "I love you, Inuyasha." She said, snuggling deeper into his embrace.

Inuyasha's eyes softened slightly at those words. "I love you too, Kagome." He said, kissing her once again.

They both looked out over the land before them, watching as the sun sank low behind the trees, each thinking about their future they would have together.
