Disclaimer: I do not own Inuyasha or his gang…Rumiko Takahashi does….there, I said it! Happy now? Probably not….like you care about this stupid fairly pointless disclaimer….yeah…I'm done now.
Author's Note: I am back with a new story….the sequel to 'More Than You Know'….since everyone enjoyed it….thank you all for reading! This one is centered more on the 2 couples' relationships….so there will be some tantalizing scenes….I'm not going to do anything too graphic….just enough so you get the idea. This story will not be based on that….sorry….lol. It may seem confusing…but everything will be explained in due time….and there is a plot….I'm still working out what it will come to be though…so bare with me….;
Mind Over Matter: The Sequel of 'More Than You Know'
'Inuyasha, Inuyasha! Please-' The hanyou stirred from his sleep. "Hmm? Kagome? Where the hell am I?" He rose from his spot on the cold dirt floor. It was very dark and he padded along the walls to find a door. "What the hell am I doing? I can just blow this place to bits with Tessaiga." He reached to his side to draw out his sword, but it wasn't there. "What the fuck? Where the hell is it?" Inuyasha began to grow angry. He couldn't remember anything and why or how he got into this place. "Naraku! Are you the one who did this! Why am I here? Where the hell did you put me!" He screamed.
"Why won't he wake up?" Kagome sobbed as she ran her fingers through his silver hair. "Why?"
"I don't know, Kagome." Kaede said as she closed her eyes in dismay. "Maybe this has something to do with his ability to read thoughts."
"No, no. The scream of the harpy he killed reversed it. He said so himself. He couldn't have still been able to, would he?" Kagome questioned, her eyes pleading with the elderly priestess.
"Inuyasha likes to hide his fears and problems, remember?" Sango said quietly. "He almost didn't tellus he could read our minds."
"I just don't understand him not waking up. It's like he's in a sleep-like state."
"In my world they call it a coma." Kagome sniffled. "There's nothing we can do, just wait." She was trying her hardest not to cry anymore than she already had. Kagome and Inuyasha had grown much closer in the months after the harpies came. Their love only grew during that time. Inuyasha was finally opening up to her and now this had to happen. 'I wish you'd come back to me, Inuyasha.'
'If I knew how to get out of here, I would, Kagome!' Inuyasha barked; his yell bounced off the walls. 'It's so cold and dank in here, like a prison.' He slumped to the floor. 'This is ridiculous. Naraku has got to be the one who did this to me. I swear I'm gonna kill that son of a bitch one of these days!' He sighed and decided to sleep. Maybe his dreams would tell him how to get out.
"I suggest you take him to see Ukago. She just might know more about things like this. I'm drawing a blank."
"Who's Ukago?" Miroku asked.
"She's an old acquaintance of mine. We used to train together to become priestesses. Ukago knows much more about medicines, plus she does have her own garden. She lives in the Shiroyo Mountains in the east, a couple days trip I assume. I think right now that's the only hope we have to save him." She sighed as she gazed at the poor heartbroken schoolgirl. They packed up their things and headed out to find this woman.
"Come back soon! I'll miss you Kagome!" The little fox demon chirped as he squeezed his foster mother good-bye.
"We'll be back soon, Shippo. Thank you Kaede for looking after him." Kagome smiled as she ruffled his hair.
"Not a problem, dear. He's a great help around the hut." She smiled warmly and gave her a hug. "He'll come back to you. Inuyasha wouldn't lose to such a silly thing as this. He loves you, more than you know." This brought tears to her eyes.
"I know Kaede-obasan. Thank you! We'll be off now." Kagome boarded the straw filled wagon and made herself comfortable next to the sleeping hanyou. Miroku and Sango sat up front, Miroku taking the reigns of the horse. Everyone was silent and the clip-clop of the horse's hooves and the sound of the wooden wheels rolling were all you heard. "Thank you for coming with me."
"Kagome-chan we wouldn't have left you to yourself on this journey." Sango turned around. Kagome had tears dripping from her eyes. "You should stop crying. Inuyasha would be very unhappy to see you this way over him, just as we are right now. Neh, Houshi-sama?" Sango nudged the silent monk.
"Yes, we're very sad to see you this way." He turned around to look at the girl.
"Watch the road! Turn around!" Kagome started to giggle. They both blinked. "What's so funny, Kagome-chan?"
"You seem like an old married couple. In my world we have cars. I've told you about them, neh?" Sango nodded, "Well it's always clichéd that the wife nags the husband while he's driving and it was funny to see it happen right now." She smiled weakly.
"Oh." Sango stated simply, not fully understanding why it was so funny, but it was good to see her friend smile. "Anyways, we should be stopping for the night soon. The sun's about to set." As soon as the words left her mouth the sun dove right behind the mountain and the sky darkened. They started up a campfire and ate some dinner. Kagome mashed up some bread and mixed it with water. She took it over to Inuyasha, hoping he would be able to swallow it, he didn't. Kagome frowned and threw herself on him.
"If you don't eat or drink you'll die! I don't want that!" She pounded on his chest. Miroku came and stopped her.
"Kagome-san! Kagome-san! That will not help him awaken!"
"Yes it will! Shock-therapy dammit! Wake up, Inuyasha! Wake up!" She sobbed as she crumbled next to his body. "Leave me, please." The monk did as he was told.
"Maybe we should leave for a little while. Let her calm down."
"I think that's a novel idea Lady Sango." They both snuck out of sight, into the woods. "She's a complete mess. I've never seen her so….so…."
"Utterly distressed." Sango tried to finish his sentence. "If anything were to happen to you, I don't know how I'd react. Probably much in the same manner. I'd break down." She took hold of his hand and squeezed it tightly.
"I'm not going anywhere. Unless…."
"Don't even start, Houshi. We'll kill him before that happens. I wouldn't let-" She was cut off by his lips on hers. "mmph….Houshi-sama! I was being serious!"
"So was I."
"You just don't want me to talk of such things, do you?"
"No, I don't like to think about them, especially when we're all alone." He smirked mischievously.
"But we shouldn't, not now. We have to be with Kagome-chan." Sango reminded.
"She needs time alone, didn't we agree on that?" He raised his eyebrow.
"I can never say no to you," She leaned into his ear, "Miroku…."
"Oh, Sango!" He pounced her to the ground and pinned her hands above her head. "You drive me crazy!" She smirked and squirmed to get away. "Oh no you don't."
"Houshi-sama….be gentle. You're hurting my wrists."
"Sango, if I let you go….nothing will be accomplished. You're already making me get too warm for these robes."
"Then take them off, baka." She playfully insulted.
"But if I do then your hands will be free to do whatever they so please."
"So, you don't like what my hands do?" He closed his eyes and sighed dreamily.
"Gods you are such a vixen sometimes!"
Kinda a Lemony twist…..skip if you don't want to read
He tore off his top kimono to reveal his chest and then placed his hands back on her wrists before she could do anything. Miroku leaned down and kissed her. She moaned against his lips and squirmed to get her hands free. The kiss deepened and Miroku forgot his hold on her wrists and soon her hands were caressing his back and getting lower. He grabbed her hands again and broke the kiss to get air. Both were breathing heavily. "You're too good at this." He said softly.
"Yeah, I can tell you're enjoying this. I can feel you, you know."
"Ahahahaha! Sango, you're embarrassing me." He blushed red. She smiled and pushed him off of her, so that he was still sitting on her. Sango undid her obi and the V of her kimono opened wider, revealing more of her skin. Before you could say: Keh! he was on top of her.
End of Lemoness (yeah I know it was short….so sue me!)
Kagome dug out a sleeping bag and laid it on top of her and Inuyasha. She snuggled up next to him and gazed up at the stars. "I can only imagine what Sango and that perverted monk are up too, neh, Inuyasha?" She giggled. Kagome looked over at his peaceful face. "Well, you'll be full of energy when you wake up, huh?" She sighed. What use was it to joke with him; he wasn't there. 'Why does this always happen to me? You always leave me!'
'It's not like I want to, Kagome! I don't know what's going on here! I'm stuck in this room!' He yelled as if she could hear him. 'Kagome…' Suddenly, Inuyasha felt a warm soothing sensation wash over him then it centered on his lips. 'What is this feeling? It feels like….'
Kagome kissed his lips and stayed locked for awhile, hoping Inuyasha would be like Snow White or Sleeping Beauty and wake up. Nothing happened; he remained still. She started sobbing and tears fell from her face onto his. "Dammit! Nothing works! Ukago you better know what's wrong….please…."
'Salt? The smell of Kagome's tears? What the fuck is going on! Let me go! Let me out of here!' Inuyasha charged at a wall and began clawing at it. 'Dammit! She's crying! I made her cry again!' He pounded on the wall, it wouldn't budge. 'Shit!'
Kagome fell on top of him and cried herself to sleep.
When morning came, they set out for the Shiroyo Mountains. Kagome got enough courage to ask how the couple's evening had gone. They both replied: "Fine!"
Kagome was happy for them and smiled weakly.
The end of the second day was drawing at an end when they arrived at the little hut of Ukago. They knew it was her hut because all around it was an herb garden, much the same as Jinenji's. A candle was lit inside the hut and a shadowy figure stood up. "Who's out there?" A voice of an older woman called.
"We were sent here for help. Kaede-sama told us you might be able to help our friend." Miroku called.
"Come in." The bamboo door mat was held open and a slim figure stood in the doorway. The travelers, without any hesitation, walked into the hut.
