Cousin's Return Chapter 16: Pissed Off

"Koga!" yelled Shawn, pounding his back with her fists, "Koga you put me down this instant! I mean it! Put me down now!"

Koga ignored her and continued running.

"God dammit, Koga!" Shawn struggled a little more to no avail. Then she had an idea. She looked over at Koga's ponytail blowing in the wind. She grabbed it and pulled hard. Koga cried out in alarm and his grip on Shawn loosened. She hit the ground running. She sprinted back down the way she had come and bent down quickly to pick up a thick stick. She heard footsteps behind her and turned to hit Koga with it.

Shawn swung blindly and felt a hands close around both of her wrists. Whoever it was shoved her back against a large rock. Shawn closed her eyes and turned her face to the side as her head, back, and hands slammed against the hard surface. The hand that had gripped the stick was numb and Shawn heard the stick hit the ground with a soft thunk.

"What the hell is wrong with you?" Koga yelled in her face. Shawn opened her eyes and glared back.

"I was gonna ask you the same thing, you stupid bastard!" she screamed back.

Koga growled.

"Oh, shut up! I'm dating a freaking demon! Do you really think that is going to scare me?" spat Shawn, "If you're gonna kidnap someone, go kidnap Kagome! I thought she was the one you were all lovey dovey about, not me."

Koga growled again, "Jeez, don't you get it? Its not like this is personal. I'll be honest with you Shawn, you're a very attractive girl," Shawn blushed uncontrollably, "But, no offense, I'm only interested in Kagome."

"Thank God!"

Koga glared, "Anyway, I kidnapped you merely to piss Inuyasha off.

"And the point of that is…?" asked Shawn. Koga let go of her wrists, "What? Not afraid, I'll run away anymore?"

"Really Shawn, do you really think you can outrun me?" Koga circled around her the way he had when they first met. Back then it made Shawn think of a vulture. Now, with his stupid, cocky little grin, he looked more like a predator who was just daring for her to test his theory.

"You're an ass."

"We can do this the easy way or the hard way," said Koga, ignoring her. He stopped in front of her and held out his hands, "You're choice."

Shawn knew she had no chance when it came to speed. She would have to figure out something later. Maybe she could sneak off while he was asleep? She took his hands with a sigh.

Koga scooped Shawn up bridal style and gave her that cocky grin again.

"You better watch those hands," muttered Shawn.

"Dammit! Would you people hurry up? I'm getting old over here!" cried Inuyasha.

"Shut up, all ready!" yelled Kagome from atop Kirara. She, Sango, Miroku, and Shippo were all on top of Kirara, making the going a little slower than usual. Kagome would have ridden with Sesshomaru if he hadn't suddenly left. She wasn't sure why, but she suspected that it had something to do with not wanting to help Inuyasha. Now she was really wishing she had gone with him.

"Relax, Inuyasha," said Miroku for the tenth time; "It's only Koga. Nothing bad is going to happen."

Inuyasha snorted and continued running towards the wolf den, 'I'm gonna kill him!' he thought, 'That bastard! Who does he think he is? Taking off with Shawn like that? I'll kill him!'

When Shawn arrived at the wold den with Koga she nearly jumped out of his arms. She couldn't stand being carried around like a child any longer. It was pissing her off to no end. Koga gave her a sly look and led her into a cave.

On her way in Shawn received multiple catcalls. Her temper rose with the color in her cheeks. Many of the wolf demons recognized her from the last time her had been there. Shawn thought back to that visit.

It had been a little over six months ago. When she was visiting Kagome over the summer and had somehow gotten down the well. It turned out to be that she was the incarnation of some evil priestess, a priestess that Naraku had wanted to use for his own evil purposes. On one of his many attempts to kidnap her via giant birds she had been dropped in the woods near Koga's cave. She had fallen from over a hundred feet up and on her way down she had crashed through many trees and broken her arm. Koga saved her life when he brought her unconscious body back to the den. She had been grateful then. Now she was pissed. Now was here to be the bait for Inuyasha. She was here so that Koga could piss Inuyasha off and get his kicks. She was NOT going to take any crap from these stupid, catcalling low-lifes.

She through the dirtiest possible at the nearest jeering wolf and he shut right up.

'Much better,' thought Shawn. As one shut up, they all began to lose their enthusiasm.
