Chapter Thirty-Seven: Saying Good-Bye
It took a few days for everything to get back to normal. The parents had to make up an excuse for their kids missing so much school...and it turned out to be a group vacation that they all took.
Yusuke and Kagome had been inseparable...as were Keiko and Kurama. Shippo had gotten a lot of pictures of the two couples, and was working on a new photo album.
Hiei could be seen with Tessa...or rather...around. Either that...or they would be arguing over stupid things. Shippo didn't fail to get quite a few pictures of the turnouts...all resulting in Hiei looking shocked or getting slapped or getting hit with some large, heavy object...usually a metal baseball bat borrowed from Botan.
Now everyone was at the portal...and a few spoken words were exchanged. Kagome looked at Kikyou.
"This is not the last time...is it?" Kagome asked.
"No...we'll still see each other...but I believe that if you miss any more school your mom would have a fit..." Kagome looked over at her mother...who was saying a few things to Sango and Miroku.
"I think she's concentrating more on me and Yusuke at the moment." Kagome blushed a little. Kikyou smiled and hugged Kagome.
"You know...I still feel bad about what I did to you when I first met you up until we started working together." Kagome nodded.
"Yeah...it's really hard to believe. That was over 500 years ago...so we really shouldn't worry about it, ne?" Kagome returned the hug. "Besides...we're friends now!"
"Despite what other people say, you and I are more alike than they think." Kikyou smiled. "For one...we look alike. For another...our boyfriends have temperamental problems." Kagome looked to where Kikyou had diverted her attention to see Inuyasha and Yusuke arguing.
"I'm not getting into that fight..." Kagome murmured.
With Yusuke and Inuyasha
"WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU SO WORRIED FOR?" Yusuke shouted. "I SAID I WOULD TAKE GOOD CARE OF HER!"
"SHE'S PRACTICALLY MY SISTER-IN-LAW!" Inuyasha shouted back. "I CAN'T HELP BUT BE WORRIED! WITH THAT JOB OF YOURS, SHE MIGHT GET KILLED!"
"I THINK WHAT WE JUST ACCOMPLISHED WAS MORE DANGEROUS THAN ANYTHING I HAVE TACKLED SO FAR!"
"AND LOOK WHAT HAPPENED! WE ALL GOT KILLED..."
There was a moment of silence between the two men. "Well...I guess I'll see you around."
"I'll keep Kagome safe. Don't worry. You keep Kikyou and the others safe." Yusuke scuffed the ground with his foot.
"You don't have to worry about that. I've kept them safe for 500 years...I think I can them safe."
"Are you sure?" Kouga asked. Tessa nodded. "Damn it runt...you're like my daughter." Kouga sighed.
"She'll be all right, with a little bit of training, she'll be one of the team." Koenma said to Kouga. "Hiei will be the one training her..."
"You seem surprised." Ayame commented.
"He was the one who suggested all of this in the first place." Koenma nearly shuddered. "You don't know Hiei that well...that is really out of character."
"Just as long as she gets to return after training and in-between missions, I'm good." Ginta chimed in.
"Yeah...and don't make her go unless you absolutely need her!" Hakkaku added.
"Now you're just being overprotective." Tessa grumbled, though no one heard her.
"And remember...if any perverts try anything..." Sango lectured the girl.
"Give 'em the classic slap." Keiko smiled.
"Well...I was going to say conjure my Hiraikotsu and give 'em a bashing...but I guess what you have will work too." Sango smiled back. Kurama and Miroku looked at both girls nervously.
"I'm so glad I'm not like you." Kurama commented to Miroku, who laughed nervously.
"Well...it's not like it's my fault! I have my reasons!"
"YOU'RE REASONS ARE PAST EXPIRED!" Sango brought her Hiraikotsu down on Miroku's head.
"I'm really glad you're not like Miroku." Keiko murmured to Kurama. "I don't know what I'd do if I had to hurt you."
"Hopefully...that will never happen."
(Kurama's only fear...Keiko's Wrath)
"Mommie, do you really have to go?" Shippo asked, tugging on Kagome's skirt. Kagome smiled sadly.
"Yes...but don't worry. I'll be back." Kagome hugged the kitsune. "Now, behave and don't cause too much trouble." Kagome's eyes got a glint in them. "Oh...and..." Kagome whispered in Shippo's ear, and the kit got a wicked glint in his eye.
"Ok Mommie!" Shippo hugged Kagome back and ran off to the wind master, Jin.
"Take good care of him." Kagome ordered. "I don't know what I'd do without him."
"I know what you mean, lass." Jin smiled. "You take good care of Yusuke...he's got himself in quite a bit of trouble, and something tells me it will happen again."
"Don't worry Shela, all of your friends will be safe. Yusuke can take good care of 'imself. He beat me, didn't he?" Chuu reassured Kagome.
"I'm proud of it!" Yusuke grinned, wrapping his arm around Kagome's shoulders. Chuu laughed.
"Well, you guys have fun! All of you girls, remember to have lots of kids!" Miroku smiled.BANG
"Wow...every single girl..." Touya's eye twitched. "Remind me not to turn into Miroku."
"All right. Don't turn into Miroku." Rinku commented. "That's weird...even Genkai bashed him. He's gonna be hurting' for a few days."
There were a few minutes of silence.
"Well...I guess this is good-bye." Kagome sighed.
"I'll do the honors." Kikyou seemed a little bit depressed as she worked the spell to open the portal.
The Reikai Tentei and their families all jumped in.
The Other Side of the Portal
