REI'S CORNER: ok so now that this story is started up again, I'd like to ask you all a question. If you are even reading this part. Sigh. Ok here's the question. " Would you rather me stop this story at the end, or write a sequel?" vote, please this time, because I already have a new story coming in behind this one and Database Drama. So if you want a sequel, hurry and tell me so I can plot it out.

Chapter...Here...you...go...your...chapter...weee...yeah.

Chapter 11- Which way Does the Wind Blow?

"Inuyasha! Why are you still here?" Kagome asked.

"Well, is your mom back yet?" he asked.

"No...But..."

"Well you just answered your own question."

Kagome growled.

"You're eating all the food!" she yelled.

"Well go get some more."

Inuyasha was not prepared for the shoe that came flying towards his head. Ouch. He couldn't move out of the way even if he knew it was coming. Kagome sighed, then headed for the door, to go grocery shopping.

When she opened the door, she was shocked to see Sango standing in front of her. Little Shippo was standing next to her, he looked a little disappointed, but sort of happy at the same time.

"Hi Kagome!" Sango yelled.

"Um...Hi?"

"I just came across an emergency, and I can't take Shippo with me. Be my best friend Kagome...watch him for a little while will you? PLEASE? I can't take him where I'm going." Sango begged.

Kagome looked from Sango to Shippo. "Why Sango, of course...but I'm going to the store, Inuyasha has to watch him for a little bit."

Shippo sighed loudly in frustration, then looked at Kagome with a pleading look. She didn't see him though, because she was too busy trying to keep her balance while Sango hugged her tightly, almost knocking them both down.

"Thanks Kagome! Gotta go, Bye! Shippo be good!" Sango yelled as she ran off.

"Ok Shippo, go on ahead into the living room with Inuyasha, I'll be back in a little while."

"Aw...gee...why do I have to get stuck with him.." she heard him say, followed by several mutters of, 'Sheesh', and 'Why me!'

Kagome shrugged it off and headed to the store on foot.

-

"I'm back!" Kagome called from the front door.

"It took ya long enough." Inuyasha huffed.

Kagome walked into the kitchen and put the groceries away, then walked into the living room. She looked around. "Where's Shippo?"

Inuyasha smirked, and pointed to the closet, where she heard muffled yelps.

She walked over to the closet, and opened it. Poor Shippo immediately fell at her feet, tied up and gagged. Inuyasha started laughing, Kagome gasped and moved to help Shippo.

"Inuyasha!" she yelled.

"What? He was getting on my nerves, so I gave him something to do."

Inuyasha found himself in another situation, where a shoe print found its way to his face.

-

"Kagome, what's taking so long?" Shippo whined.

"I'm almost finished!" she yelled from the kitchen.

Shippo banged his forehead on the table. His stomach growled at him violently.

"Kagome!"

"Aha! I'm finished!" Kagome rushed out of the kitchen. She sat a big plate, a small plate, a bowl, and a glass on the table and smile at Shippo.

"Here we are, the main course, spaghetti with meatballs, the side course, some applesauce, bread sticks, and carrots, and for dessert, a slice of yummy yellow and chocolate cake for you!"

Shippo stared wide-eyed at the meal in front of him, his mouth even watered a little.

"So what would you like to drink Mister?" she asked.

"Um..."

"We have water, soda, juice, and milk."

Shippo giggled at her good waitress/chef acting.

"I want milk!" he said happily.

"Milk it is!" she said, then rushed off to the kitchen, returning with his drink.

"Hmm...I wonder where Inuyasha went." She said.

"I think he said he was going to take a shower." Shippo said, busy stuffing his face.

"Oh, ok." she said, and watched Shippo eat.

All of the sudden there was a knock at the door. Kagome looked over to it. Maybe it was Sango to come pick up Shippo. She got up and went to the door. No one was there. She closed the door and sat down again.

There was the knock again.

Kagome got frustrated instantly. She didn't have time to play Suzie, Something's behind the door and it's gonna get you. She got up, and walked to the door, opening it.

"Look, whoever it is out there, I don't have time for...W-Who are you!" she yelled, and stepped back.

At the door stood a tall person. Taller the Kagome. They wore a heavy black coat, and she couldn't see his face, because it was covered by a scarf of some sort.

"I-I know you've been watching me! What do you want!" she cried.

The figure stepped closer to her. Kagome tried to scream, but the person covered her mouth. She saw the person hold something out to her, it was shiny. They removed their hand from her mouth.

"What's this for?" she asked.

She got know anser, but the figure opened her hand and slipped the object into it. She looked towards their face, trying to figure out who it could be.

"Um, thank you I guess..."

The figure hugged her, nearly knocking her over, and making her swing to the side. Kagome gasped.

"Get off of me! Please!" she yelled.

All of a sudden, something flew by her head, and hit the wall next to her. Kagome looked at the wall. It was a paint ball. It would have hit her in the face if the person didn't move her. Yet, it was just a paint ball. 'But it would have hurt' she thought. The person sat her up straight while she got lost in her thoughts.

"Kagome? Who's at the door! I want some more applesauce!" Shippo yelled from the dining room.

Kagome looked in the direction of where the living room, out of reflects from being snapped out of her thoughts.

She heard the door close. The person was gone. Kagome looked at the door for a few seconds, wondering what just happened.

When she got back to Shippo, he was asleep, his face in the bowl that had the cake in it. She giggled at the picture.

"Guess I better clean up this mess." she said.

She heard noise in the upstairs bathroom, loud noise, but then Inuyasha ran down the stairs.

"Hey Kagome." He puffed out.

"Oh hey Inuyasha. What was that noise?"

"Dropped the soap. Did I hear the doorbell?"

"Yeah, it was Mr. Shadow." she said blankly.

"What! He was here, and you didn't call me! Kagome!" he shouted.

"I couldn't, I forgot. Sorry."

"YOU FORGOT!" he yelled.

Kagome blushed. "I think he protected me from something."

"What?"

"Someone was shooting paint balls at me. And they gave me this." she said, and handed him the object in her hand.

Inuyasha looked at it. It was a small golden chain, it had on it Kagome's name, with a heart next to it. Inuyasha looked closer, then threw it back to her.

"It's junk." he said. "Don't wear it."

"But it's pretty." she said.

"So?"

"So I think I'll wear it."

Kagome put on the necklace, clasping on the back. Inuyasha growled.

"What's your problem, you're a dog now?" she asked.

"Kagome, you're MY girlfriend!"

"Ok...so...?"

Inuyasha gave up and threw himself on the couch.

"Forget it, I just thought that meant something to you." he said.

Kagome winced.

"It does!" she said.

"Then you're going to wear something, that some stranger gave you, not caring who gave it to you, or what his intentions are?"

Kagome winced again. He was right, she slid off the necklace and handed it to him.

Inuyasha's serious face disappeared. He chuckled lightly.

"I was kidding. Don't worry about it Kagome. Put it on. It looks really pretty on you."

Kagome blushed. "Oh ok." she said, then put it back on.

Inuyasha turned on the tv, and Kagome went to clean up the mess in the kitchen, and dining room. When she was finished, she sat , the still sleeping, Shippo on the other end of the couch and sat next to Inuyasha.

Inuyasha smirked and draped an arm over her shoulder. Kagome blushed when he snuggled really close to her.

"So you are my girlfriend now." Inuyasha said softly.

"I...guess...so..." Kagome said.

Inuyasha chuckled, then brought his face close to Kagome's.

The door pounded. "Kagome! Inuyasha! I came to get Shippo!" Sango yelled from the door.

Kagome rolled her eyes and laughed at Inuyasha's grumpy face, and went to open the door.

"You aren't getting away for long!" he yelled playfully. "Remember, Shippo is LEAVING!"

Kagome laughed and opened the door for Sango.

-

The figure laughed loudly. He watched his computer screen. A little red dot moved around the screen, showing him where Kagome was.

A tracking device in her necklace.

It costed him a lot of money for that stupid thing, but right now it was worth it. He had to keep the girl out of trouble! It was like those losers, Kikyo, Ayame, followed her around everywhere. He wasn't about to let her get hurt because Ayame and Kikyo are jealous over her.

And thanks to the little bicker with Inuyasha, he knew she would keep it on now. She wouldn't take it off, because it looked 'pretty' on her. The figure laughed again. The timing was in his favor. He looked in the window again. She was now sleeping, just as the little red dot on the computer screen had stopped moving.

The person smiled, and watched her sleep for a bit, then went on his own way, happy that things turned out for him.


Okay that was really fun to write. OK IF YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHO THE DARK FIGURE, AKA MR. SHADOW, IS, THEN PUT IT IN YOUR REVIEW! AT THE END, WHEN YOU ALL FIND OUT WHO THE FIGURE IS, THEN I'LL GIVE YOU RECOGNITION, AND 500 GOLD STARS! NOT THAT THEY REALLY MEAN ANYTHING THOUGH... BUT HERE'S A HINT! THE FIGURE MIGHT NOT BE JUST ONE PERSON. THEY COULD BE MULTIPLE PEOPLE, OR MAYBE JUST ONE! YOU'LL FIND OUT! OK SO IF YOU THINK YOU KNOW, PUT IT IN YOUR REVIEW! IT'S WORTH A TRY!
