Sango opened the door to the room adjacent to hers. "This is it." she said as it swung open to reveal her new quarters.

Kagome gazed inside to see white painted walls, black curtains pulled taught, black bedding. A small black table was in the far corner of the room with a matching chair, and a white nightstand by her bed.

"It's basic, I know, but it grows on you." she said.

Kagome walked over and sat on the bed. "I like it. Black's one of my favorite colors."

"Ah....that's good. You also have to wear black uniforms at specified times."

"What does the uniform consist of?" Kagome asked curiously.

"Well, each person's uniform is different from the rest...depending on what suits you the best." she began. "And the Higher ranks have two other colors-navy and silver."

"Um...k."

"Anotherwords, the higher rank you are, the lighter the color. You, since you're new, will start off with basic black until Sesshomaru, or someone of high rank, deems you worthy to wear the next color in line." Kagome stared blankly at Sango. "Come on, I'll show you."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After going down the corridor and up a flight of steps, then down another corridor, they arrived at their destination.

Kagome looked at the simple door with a sign that stated 'Uniforms'. Sango knocked and the door opened to reveal a young girl, about Sango's age, with deep brownish black hair, maroon eyes, a glowing smile, and perfect complexion.

"Ah, so you're the new girl." she smiled. "Come on in."

Kagome and Sango entered and Sango sat back on the black leather couch that stood alongside the wall and plucked one of the magazines off the table.

"So, what's your name?"

"Kagome Higurashi."

"Mine's Rin." the girl said as she retreived the measuring tape from the desk and began taking Kagome's measurements.

"Hey, Rin?" Sango called, "Do you know when the next tournament takes place?"

"Next week, why? Finally plan on trying to make it to silver?" Rin let out a small laugh.

"Of course! But Kagome also has to try and prove herself worthy."

"Ah, yeah..I'm sure she will though."

"Ok, would you two PLEASE stop acting like I'm not here?"

Rin glanced up at Sango, then they both began laughing.

"What? What's so fuckin' funny?!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After the two girls finally quit laughing, and Kagome was suited with a set of six uniforms, Sango led Kagome to the next room. 'Weaponry'.

The twi quickly walked in. "Sango, what are you doing here? Don't you have enough weapons already?" came a masculine voice. Kagome turned to face the owner and gasped. (A/N : you know what's coming) He had long, silvery white hair, piercing amber to golden pools that glistened whenever light touched them, beautiful creamy peach skin, toned body, and above all-two little pointed dog ears protruding from the top of his head.

"Shut up Inuyasha.. We're here to get Kagome some weapons, not me."

"Feh..." he said as he got up from the chair and walked to a large case. He opened it up and there lay nearly every type of sword, dagger, katana, or sciminar that you could imagine. He pulled two basic daggers from their posts. He turned to Kagome, then froze solid. 'She....she looks so much like Kikyo...' He sniffed the air. 'Even their scents are pretty much the same, except...hers is more of rosebuds and sakura, while Kikyo's scent is old and deathly, like that of withered flowers...' He glanced into her deep chocolate eyes that seemed to flicker with life and yet to tell him of the world she knew. 'Damn she's beautiful...'

"Inuyasha?" came Sango's voice, 'You ok?"

He shook his head. "Hai..fine." He handed the dagger to Kagome. "You 'do' know how to use one of these, don't you?"

"Of course." she smirked.

"Fine. There's a training mat to your right. We'll practice on that with the basic knives."

"Okay." she said as she walked to the mat, only to be stopped by his voice.

"Stupid girl. Aren't you forgetting something?"

"Nani?"

"Your shoes." Sango stated.

Kagome looked down. "Huh?"

Inuyasha rolled his eyes. "On the mat, it's easier to move without shoes, so you are to take them off. Your shoe couled get caught on one of the cloth edges and cause you to land on your sword."

Kagome cringed and took off her shoes. She then stood on the mat and Inuyasha joined her.

He then positioned in his fighting stance, and Kagome tried to do the same.

"First defense." he said as he lunged at Kagome, who easily blocked causing the clang of the metal. She, in turn, made several hits to Inuyasha, and he only managed to block the rest by seconds. Kagome, on the other hand, blocked nearly all but two of Inuyasha's hits.

"Good." He said as he let Kagome take a relaxing breath of air. "Seems you do know how to use a sword."

"Well, duh..."

He smirked and walked over to the case and retrieved a simple dagger with a handle wrapped in black satin for an easy grip. The sheath was also covered in black satin, but had red sakura blossoms printed on it, making it uniquely beautiful. "Here ya go. Don't lose it or it's your ass I'm coming after...That's one of our best."

Kagome raised an eyebrow. "Only an idiot would lose a dagger."

"Even so..just be careful." Sango added. "Ano, Inuyasha, what rank do you think she'll place?"

"Feh....she's good, but not good enoug to be higher than basic black."

"Damn." Sango sighed.

"Now would you two *cough* ladies leave? I have some work to catch up on."

"You, do work?! Hah!"

"Sango, now."

"Okay, okay..we're leaving." she said as she grabbed the semi-confused Kagome out of the room and closed the door behind her.

Inuyasha sighed. "Another miko.. Soon this place will be going to hell in a hand basket...." he said aloud to only himself. 'But maybe she'll be the one to change things...'

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Okay...for those of you who know how long my chapters usually are (ranging from 100 - 500 words), be greatful...lol.

Mr. Evil : WHen does Sesshomaru NOT have something planned? o.O

angel-wings-131: lol...Yeah..some thought that was corny, but...yeah.. Anyways, don't worry, there won't be that much Inu/Kikyo fluff..if there is, it's one-sided..

And, yeah... there are three Mikos in this story... possibly four... Rin, Kikyo, Kagome, and possibly Sango..

And Kikyo WILL get her just deserts in about...oh, I'd say 10-20 chapters...lol

The next few chapters may seem pointless, but it introduces the main characters, their personalities, surroundings, and circumstances ( a.k.a why they're there, what's going on in their lives, etc). It will also hold small clues to what I have done for Sesshomaru's plan, along with Inuyasha's and Kagome's as well...Wait, did I just say Inuyasha? Oops..cat's out of the bag..

Yeah, he has a plan of his own, and there will also be clues as to WHY these plans are so important to those people...

If you have questions that are kinda long-winded, feel free to email me for a more personal response- JMoonMars@aol.com.

Anyways, I may post again..but lately, my mind's somewhere else....for example, I made a peanut butter sandwich for lunch and stuck the peanut butter in the refridgerator....o.O



If you want to read three great stories, check them out!

Human Compensation by WhisperingMoon : It's another gangster fiction, but more of a twist. Kagome works as Inuyasha's secretary, but what she doesn't know is that she's working for him to help pay off her grandfather's debt. And what Inuyasha doesn't know is that he'll fall in love with her, and so will the world-that's why he must protect her.

Simply Irresistable (I think that's right..*hits head to get it to work again) by angel-wings-131 : Not your average College fiction. Kagome and Inuyasha have been friends for a very long time, and they realize just how much they mean to eachother when something horrible happens to Inuyasha. Will he get better? Of course! But give no thanks to the bitch name Kikyo..*gags*

Turn of Events by Bear5 : What is it with me and gang fics?o.O Anyways..Kagome is a successful lawyer who gets Kidnapped by Inuyasha, the Shadow Lurker. And instead of killing her for her smart mouth, he finds her intriguing and falls in love with her, only to face severe challenges from Kikyo, Sesshomaru, and Naraku. Even after Kagome kills Kikyo and 'Sly', they're plagued with troubles even more. Doubts intertwine their minds until a vision comes along-one of the future which is nearly clear as a bell..



And if you want regular fiction, look up Senaca State University by WhisperingMoon on fictionpress.net. It's harder to summarize, but it's like a college fic with several different twists and real life situations...the author pours herself into each word and character, making the story a great legend to remember.
