Disclaimer:Go to Chapter One!
AN:Whoa ho!! I was so inspired by all the reviews! Thanks a lot!!!!
AN2:P.S I am a new found fan of Kikyou…so if you do not like her…don't read my story because she will not be killed, or maimed! Sorry! But please…don't let that discourage you from reading my story! Get over your hate for Kikyou! She's cool!
Of course I'm not here to change your thoughts and opinions…so…
Kagome leaned forward abruptly. That feeling was one that her grandfather had taught her about. The one that he, and her grandmother had trained her to acknowledge. It was the feeling that sparked several years of long hard training.
There was a youkai in the room. And it was strong.
Kagome focused, and fought panic. I trained for this. She thought as she began to spread her senses, sending out a touch of her miko energy.
Sesshomaru was confused to say the least. What caused all of that? He question was soon answered as he noticed a slight shift in her aura. Then he realized why his instincts were screaming to move, run, anything. She was sending out a slight touch of miko energy. Nothing to harm him, but enough that she would sense him, and most likely purify him. Apparently Inuyasha had noticed too because he tensed up. Sesshomaru didn't know what to do. If he moved, he would attract attention, if he didn't do anything he would probably be purified.
Chapter 2: Of Mikos and Youkai Alike
Kagome was tense as she waited for her energies to find the hidden youkai. How come I didn't notice this before. She thought, as her energies spread out slowly.
Leiko watched Sesshomaru watch Kagome. Sesshomaru is mine…and she will not have him. Leiko thought. She looked around her desk. Her eyes fell upon her water bottle, and a malicious smile graced her orange lips. Swiftly untwisting the top, she casually placed the bottle on the edge of her desk. With a slight of flick of her wrist, the bottle tipped over, spilling its cold contents on the unsuspecting head of one Higurashi Kagome.
Kagome jumped out of her seat, her concentration broken, and the probing miko energy successfully snapped back into her. Her hair was dripping wet, and cold water was dripping down her front. She stifled a shriek a the cold liquid, and almost yelled for joy when the bell rang, signaling the end of 2nd period, and the beginning of lunch. Kagome turned, and glared at the fake blond behind her.
"Leiko, you unbearable whore!" Grabbing her things, Kagome stormed down the stairs, and out of the classroom. Leiko's laughs following, and the youkai temporarily forgotten.
Sesshomaru sighed in relief when Kagome jumped out of her seat. He almost thanked Leiko for dropping the water on her, before he caught himself. The classroom piled out, leaving Inuyasha and Sesshomaru putting their things away slowly.
"Well that's something that doesn't happen everyday." Inuyasha said. "Well…not anymore." Sesshomaru stopped what he was doing, and turned to look at his brother.
"This creates a problem, Inuyasha." He said.
"So she's a miko. Next time we won't seat so close to her." Inuyasha shrugged it off. And Sesshomaru sighed. Could it really be helped that his brother was a complete idiot?
"Think half-breed. If she is a miko then I can only surmise that so is her older sister. They are both trained Mikos, and yet I stood within a 1 foot radius of Kikyou and she did not feel my youki, but her younger sister did. Not only is the concealing spell I put on us powerful, it damn near makes our youki undetectable. I have tested it, and no one but a very powerful miko would be able to detect us, and even then they would have to be standing in a half-foot radius. The girl was at least a foot away."
"So she's a powerful miko. I repeat, next time we won't sit next to her." Inuyasha said nonchalantly.
Sesshomaru had the urged to rip his head apart.
"She will keep searching you imbecile. And sooner or later she'll find us."
Inuyasha seemed to finally see this, and he nodded.
"So. What will we do then?"
"In a class full of students? Or do you plan on killing them too?" Inuyasha said mockingly.
"There are many ways to kill unnoticed." Sesshomaru said. "Even in a class full of students." With that said, he finished packing his things and walked out, leaving an open mouth Inuyasha in his wake.
Kagome rushed down the halls, weaving in and out of students. Come on Kiki, where are you? She finally spotted her sister leaning against her locker, talking to her best friend Akane. Kagome skidded to a stop in front of them, gasping for air.
"Kagome-chan…what's wrong?" Kikyo asked.
"Was it Leiko?" Akane asked. Or, rather growled.
Kagome shook her head.
"There was a youkai in my class! I felt it. The tingling sensation that Grandpa told us about. You know, the one I get around you Akane-chan?" Kagome said in a rush. They both nodded.
Akane was a Kitsune demon that Kikyou had met when she was younger. The young demon had saved Kikyou's life, and they had become fast friends. Their meeting was also the began of Kagome and Kikyou's training since a young Kikyo had asked 'what the tingling feeling I get when I'm around Akane' was.
"A youkai?" Kikyo asked.
"I'm pretty sure. I don't know who it was though I wasn't-"
"Youkai in your class!? Where!? Who!?"
Kagome whirled around and came face to face, once again, with Sango. She put a hand over her rapidly beating heart, and took deep breathes.
"DON'T SNEAK UP ON ME LIKE THAT!" Kagome yelled at the other girl.
"Sorry." Sango said sheepishly. She then shrugged, and her eyes lit up.
"Youkai? Where? Point me to 'um!" She was cranking her knuckles, and looking from left to right. Kagome looked to Kikyou, who looked to Akane, who was staring at Sango.
"What's your name?" The grey eyed kitsune asked cautiously. Sango stopped her search of the now empty halls, and focused on Akane. She held out her hand.
"Sango. Sango Taijiya." They shook heads.
"Akane. Akane Tsujimoto."
"So…what species are you?" Sango asked, taking Akane by surprise.
"You're a youkai aren't you?" Sango asked. Akane regained her balance and nodded.
"Uh. Yes, I'm a kitsune. If you don't mind my asking, how did you know?"
"I come from a long line of demon exterminators. We've been trained since childhood to know certain aspects of youkai, and taught how to see through their human disguises."
"You can see through her concealing spell." Kikyou asked, interested.
"Not exactly, there are just certain things that I am taught to look for, and a certain feeling I get. That is all I am able to tell you." Sango said.
((if I tell you, I would have to kill you!! Sorry…couldn't resist.))
Kikyo nodded, accepting her answer.
"So what does your family do now?"
"We make and sell weapons. It's a pretty good business. Of course not as good as you guys, but its good for my family." Sango said. Her brown eyes light up again, and her knuckle cracking resumed.
"So…Where's the youkai!?" She asked. Kagome smiled softly. Her new friend was definitely a fierce person. Sango's eyes then took on a thoughtful light. "How did you know there was a youkai in your classroom?" She asked. Kagome looked at Kikyo who was looking at Sango. She then looked at Kagome and nodded once.
"Well. Our family we are the descendents of a powerful Miko named Midoriko. Every female in our line has great spiritual powers. Every other generation of females inherits Midoriko's full powers. Her powers fell on us this generation." Kagome explained.
"Rather they fell upon Kagome-chan. Her powers skip around. Our grandmother has them, our mother does not, although she does have strong spiritual powers, they are not like our grandmothers. I do not have Midoriko's powers, but I am close, Kagome-chan was given Midoriko's full powers." Kikyo explained further.
"If I'm not mistaken, Midoriko is the creator of the Shikon no Tama." Sango said. Kikyo nodded. "My family…our ancestors were once its protector. I don't know what has happened to it since but…" Sango shrugged.
Kikyo smiled, and pulled out a small jewel from around her neck. It was a pearly pink. Sango's eyes widened, and her mouth dropped.
"Is that the sacred jewel?"
Kikyo nodded, before slipping it back into her shirt.
"I believe now would be the best time to eat lunch." Akane said. They nodded before heading into the cafeteria.
Sesshomaru restrained a growl as another flock of hormone driven teenage females flocked around his table. He watched in barely veiled disgust as Miroku flirted shamelessly with one of Leiko's friends. These women have no class. He thought in contempt, as he watched her flirt back, leaning over so that her shirt dropped, showing an indecent amount of cleavage.
He looked around the large cafeteria, deciding on what he would eat. It was either McDonalds, or Subway, maybe even Rubios. Hmmm…choices, choices. A small benefit of going to such a rich school was the cafeteria, which should really be called a Food Court.
"Oh look. Her comes Righteous Kikyo herself, along with her little do good crew. Oh look, a new addition." Leiko said, her voice dangerously close to his ear. He willed himself not to flinch, as all eyes turned to watch four girls go past. He recognized Kikyo, and Kagome. But not the other two. One had grey eyes, and dark blue hair, and the other chocolate eyes, and black hair held up in a ponytail.
"Look at them. They swear that they're the best! Especially that Kikyo, she walks around here like she owns the place." Leiko said, a deep scowl on her face. "And all Kagome does is follow her around. Just like that bitch Akane, I swear-"
"If all your going to do is talk shit about them, why don't you actually do it so that they can hear you." Kouga said. Sesshomaru silently agreed, at least it would get her away from him for the time being.
"You don't think I'd do it Kouga?" Leiko asked, her voice going up an octave. He saw the wolf wince slightly.
"I'd like to see it." Miroku said calmly. Leiko huffed, before signaling for three of her "friends" to follow.
Kagome laughed silently as Sango retold something of her first day here. She looked up to see Kikyo and Akane smiling, holding back their obvious laughter.
"Well Sango-chan, we now know how to fend off an oncoming pervert in…17 different kinds of ways." Kikyo said.
"And it will keep him down for how long you say?" Kagome asked, her blue eyes dark with humor. Sango sent them a small glare.
"The man was a pervert, he-"
"Let me guess, he touched…your shoulder?" Kagome's eyes whipped to her left, as Leiko strolled up to them.
"Being touched by a man…must be sooo new to all of you, I mean, what with you being so…pure and all." Leiko sneered, spitting the word pure out like it was dirt. Kagome's eyes narrowed in anger. Sango started cracking her knuckles again, and Akane merely snorted.
"As opposed to jumping on every man with two legs and a big-" Akane started, but Kikyo interrupted.
"And I suppose that the word pure is something new to you Leiko."
Leiko's eyes narrowed further. Apparently Sango had finally taken a good look at Leiko, because Kagome heard the girl gasp.
"WHAT IN 7 HELLS IS ON YOUR FACE WOMAN!" Sango screamed, rubbing her eyes and then looking back at her. "ORANGE AND GREEN DON'T GO TOGETHER IN THAT COMBINATION!"
Leiko huffed, before glaring at her.
"And I don't need some low class scum telling me, how to do my own make-up." She glared a finally time before turning around, automatically being flocked by her "friends".
"Very nice ladies." Kagome turned to owner of the smooth voice, and heard Sango splutter beside her.
Kagome smiled, so this was the pervert from Sango's first period class.
"Ah, so glad you remembered my name dear Sango." He said. "Who are your lovely friends?" He asked, eyeing them all appreciatively. Kagome swore she heard Akane snort, and Kikyo snicker, but she wasn't sure.
"Hello Miroku-san, my name is Kagome." Kagome said, holding her hand out. He took it between his own, and raised to his lips, kissing it. Kagome felt her cheeks grow warm, and just knew she was blushing.
"Ah, Kagome, such a beautiful name for an equally beautiful woman. Would you do me the honor of bearing my child?"
Kagome blinked once. Twice. Three times. Her mouth wide open. Before she could reply, Sango rescued her.
"HENTAI!" She screamed, smacking him hard in the back of the head.
"Ahh…so would that be Move #12 Sango-chan?" Kagome asked, when she snapped out of daze. Sango blushed slightly, before grumbling about perverted school boys.
"Let's go, I'm hungry." Akane said, as her stomach grumbled confirming the girls statement.
"I feel like Pizza Hut…anybody else?" Kagome asked, cheerfully stepping over the unconscious boy.
Sesshomaru looked to Inuyasha and Kouga, her wear smirking down at the unconscious Miroku.
"Finally, a girl stands up to Miroku." Kouga said, a roguish grin on his face.
"Yea, I thought they would all fall at his feet." Inuyasha said, stuffing ramen down his throat. Sesshomaru scowled at his brothers deplorable eating manners. Before rising out of his seat. Pizza sounded good today.
Kagome stood in line, trying to decide if she wanted pepperoni, or a supreme. Moving up in line, she froze. The tingling sensation was back. But this time it was stronger, and a hard chill moved down her spine. A dark haired guy in front of her turned around, his dark eyes glittered with a hidden malice.
"Higurashi Kagome I presume." He said, his voice was smooth, with a dark masculinity. "I'm Naraku. Please to met you…priestess."
AN:Welp! That's it for the 2nd Chapter! Sorry for the LOOOOONNNNNNGGGGGG WAIT! I'M MOVING SO I HAD TO TAKE CARE OF A FEW THINGS!!
