Once A Month

Chapter One: On the Eve of Battle

(The story takes place shortly after Sango joins the group)

Sango and Kagome are beginning to grow closer than sisters as they hang around each other. Even though Sango has grown to learn that being independent and unattached is the best way to survive she finds that it is nice to have someone to talk to and rely on. One evening they are sitting in the hot spring working out their sore muscles after a hard demon fight. As they both relax in the water…


"Hey Sango?"


"Can I ask you a question?"


Kagome looks over to her new found friend and traveling companion, "I've been traveling in Sengoku Jidai for almost a month and I was wondering-"

"Does this have anything to do with Inuyasha?"

She's good. "Sorta… I know he's gonna freak-"

"About what?"

Kagome takes a deep breath and asks, "What do you do in when your period comes?"


"You know… monthly bleeding?"

Sango sits up and pauses to think then, "Ohh I get it… you know Inuyasha will smell the blood…"

"Yeah it's about that time and he hasn't had to deal with it yet."

"Well what do you do in your time?"

"We have pads and Tampons-"


"Oh boy…." Kagome gets nervous about explaining, "uh it's a piece of cotton with a string attached… you…. Um use the applicator…"

"You might as well just show me when you get some from your time."

"Yeah, I need to get back soon then, by the way, I PMS really bad so here is a warning."

Sango looks to the stars and thinks to herself, Oh this should be fun.

The girls come back to the camp for dinner, and while eating Kagome tries to calmly bring up the subject of going home, but as usual Inuyasha won't hear it. Hormones fueling her mood she and he get into a very heated argument…






Kagome takes a deep breath to calm herself from her PMS mood, counting to ten before she continues she looks the fuming dog demon in the eye and continues, with a much calmer tone, "Trust me on this… I left some very important 'supplies' at home."

"Keh, we have plenty of Ramen"


"Medical supplies"


"then what else do we need?"

Kagome's eyebrow twitches



"Can we take a walk?"


Inuyasha has never seen her in such a foul mood, regardless he follows her out of the camp and sniffs the air, noticing a definite shift in her scent.

"Whats wrong Kagome?"

"What do you mean?"

"Your scent, it's… changed."

"In what way?"

"For one it's much stronger, and for two it will probably attract every male demon or human for a mile."

Kagome comes up really close to him, making him nervous with intensified scent, her hormones, driving him crazy. She looks him in the eye as he asks nervously…

"Ar..Are you ok?"

"Yeah just PMSing"

"P..M…S what?"

"Its what a female does before she has her period."


Kagome looks slightly annoyed, "Your not the only one who has once a month events, women have what we call in my day a 'period'."

"Is this what the whole 'supply' thing is over."

"Yes, as a matter of fact."

"So what, when… are you "starting" this period thing soon?"

"Any time now."

"What happens?"

Kagome blushing furiously, "That is for me to know and you to NOT to find out."

"WHAT? After all that…"

"Girls…stammering well…"

Inuyasha, noticing her scent change to that of a nervousness, he adds gruffly "Keh. If your that nervous then I won't ask."

"Can we go to my time then?"

"Fine, but can it wait 'til morning?"

"I dunno exactly when it starts, but I think I can make it."

"Ok in that case get some sleep and I will take you in the morning."


"Keh." Inuyasha watches her walking towards the camp, wondering what this whole "period" thing is and what exactly it is doing to the girl walking away. As he continues his own walk back he begins to wonder what fate has in store for him.

So what do you think? (rubs hands together and smiles evilly)

I hope you enjoyed, I will get the next chapter up in a couple of days…
