Lost But Found


Epilogue

School got out and Kagome rushed to the front of the school to find her friends again. Miroku, Sango, Naoki, Inuyasha, and Sesshomaru were standing by the entrance waiting for her.

"Hurry up!" Sango called, giggling as she yelled

Kagome ran over to them and embraced Sesshomaru once again.

"I still can't believe you are all really here." Kagome said, a hint of tears in her eyes.

"No need to cry." Sesshomaru comforted, "We are really here, and we're here to stay."

"But how?"

"There is a lot to explain, but we have some children to pick up first."

The group left school together as they set off to pick up Kohaku, Rin and Shippo from school.

"Who are they!" Eri asked, frantic that Kagome wasn't with them.

"I don't know but who is that cute guy she keeps hugging? Is that her boyfriend?" Yuka added.

"I don't know, but damn I like the silver hair" Ayumi finished.

"Hi, have you seen Higurashi-san?" Hojo asked, scaring the three girls.

"Kagome, uh well she uh" Eri attempted to reply.

"What she means to say is" Yuka started, taking Hojo's hands, "Kagome has a boyfriend. She has left school with her boyfriend and his friends."

"Boyfriend?"

"Yes, he's the new foreign exchange student with the silver hair."

"Oh, oh well. Can't win them all. At least Higurashi-san seemed extra happy today. I'll see you all tomorrow" Hojo replied waving them goodbye with the same happy expression.

"He took that unnaturally well." Eri said, as the three girls stared after him in shock.


The group arrived at the school as Kagome was tackled by a young boy.

"Kagomeeeeeeeeee" The boy squealed as he hugged her tighter.

"Shippo?" Kagome asked as she stepped away to look at him.

His eyes were still the deep green color and his hair was the exact same. It was just different to see him as a young man.

"Kagome-chan" Rin bowed as she stood before just as she was. Right behind Rin stood Kohaku, who seemed to have more life in his eyes than before.

"Alright,now that we're all here." Inuyasha started, "Shall we go?"

"Yes we have much to discuss" Naoki replied.

"Kagome, do you think your mother would mind if we went to your shrine?" Inuyasha asked. "It's just. It would be nice to see the godtree again."

"Yeah let's go!" Kagome eagerly replied as they walked off to her shrine.


Upon arriving they snuck off to a small corner of the grounds so as to not alert her family yet.

"So," Kagome started, "what is going on?"

"Well, it all happened rather quickly, and right after you left" Sesshomaru started.


(Flashback to Feudal Japan, right after she left)

"Protect it for me" Kagome whispered as she stepped backward and fell into the well.

"Goodbye" was the last thing she yelled as the blue light enveloped her and the well sealed.

"No! Kagome!" Sesshomaru yelled as he dashed to the well and leapt in.

"Sesshomaru!" Naoki yelled after him.

The demon lord landed at the bottom of the well only to look up and see that he was still in feudal Japan, the well had truly been sealed.

"No! Midoriko, BRING HER BACK!" He yelled as the leapt from the well. "

As he landed next to the rest of the group, the jewel glowed bright as Midoriko appeared before them.

"Ah, Lord Sesshomaru, to what do I owe this pleasure" Midoriko mocked.

"Bring her back." He threatened as he approached Midoriko.

"I cannot. She is beyond your grasp now my lord."

"I will get her back. You cannot keep me away from her."

"I do not intend to. This is merely a test. If you are truly the one destined to be with her then you will find a way." and with that Midoriko faded away and left them all confused.

"We have to get her back." Shippo whined.

"I may know how, but you may not wish to go through with it" Sesshomaru replied.

"Why not?"

"It would take a great deal of dedication and the true desire to be with her no matter what."

"I'm in" Inuyasha stated, "I don't care what it is, she is part of us."

"We're all with you Sesshomaru" Naoki replied, as Miroku, Sango, Kohaku, Shippo and Kirara stepped forward to stand beside Naoki and Inuyasha.

"Very well. And what about all of you?" Sesshomaru asked, turning towards Kouga, Kagura and Kanna.

"We have our own duties here to attend to" Kagura replied as she smiled at her new friends.

"Very well. Let's get down to business"

"What do you want us to do?" Inuyasha asked.

"Wait here, get anything you would want to take with you and wrap up all loose ends. Go tell that old priestess you are leaving and what has happened. I am going to go get Rin. I shall return shortly" Sesshomaru replied as he transformed and flew off.

"Well I suppose we should go tell Kaede goodbye" Sango stated.

"Mutt-face" Kouga called, gaining Inuyasha's attention. "You and Sesshomaru look after her for me."

"Will do, and don't get yourself killed. If you survive long enough, maybe we'll see you there. That is if you can stay out of trouble that long" Inuyasha replied as the two demons shook hands and met eye to eye, for the first time ever.

"Tell me," Miroku stated, turning to Kanna and Kagura, "What will you do now?"

"We have business to attend to." Kagura replied

"Yes, we know that, but what?"

"Naraku created a few incarnations that are running loose by now. We have damage control to attend to. I intend to destroy his castle and the demons he controlled. The world should be free of anything regarding Naraku."

"Save ourselves" Kanna added.

"We wish you the best of luck" Sango stated, walking over to stand beside Miroku.

"We are forever indebted to you and your priestess. Thank her again when you see her." Kagura stated as she prepared her feather.

"Of course. Good luck" Sango replied as Kagura transformed her feather and they were floating in the sky.

The whole group waved them off as they flew into the distance.

"Well I guess it's time I take my leave as well." Kouga stated as he waved and ran off.

"Well we have a job to attend to." Shippo stated.

"Right" Inuyasha replied as the group headed off to the village.


"Jaken! Rin!" Sesshomaru yelled as he entered the castle.

"Lord Sesshomaru!" Rin called as she bounced into the room, her mood immediately darkening as she looked around. "where is Kagome-chan?"

"She left, but we are going to her now." Sesshomaru replied. "Go gather your things Rin, we will not be returning."

"Yes milord."

"Not returning!" Jaken yelled.

"Yes, Kagome has gone beyond this world. We are going to her and we must go there permanently." Sesshomaru explained

"But what about the kingdom?" Jaken asked

"Call the captain of the guard and the counsel now" Sesshomaru ordered, as he walked off to find the things he would need.

"Yes milord."

Jaken returned about an hour later to inform Sesshomaru the counsel was waiting to see him.

"Esteemed members of the counsel." Sesshomaru addressed. "I, Lord Sesshomaru, denounce my position as Lord of the Western Lands. I leave the kingdom in your able hands, and the appointment of a new Lord as well." with that Sesshomaru turned and left before anyone could question him.

Sesshomaru grabbed Rin and transformed once more as he took them back to the well.


When he arrived the rest of the group was there.

"We said our goodbyes" Inuyasha stated as Sesshomaru landed.

"Very well. It is time to leave this world."

"What do you have planned?" Miroku asked.

"Just watch." Sesshomaru grabbed the jewel from around his neck. "Midoriko! Show yourself again"

"What is it now Sesshomaru?" Midoriko asked as she stood before them.

"I needed your power to wish upon the jewel."

"Very well, but I do not guarantee I will help you."

"That is not my concern now. I have asked your aid and that is all I can do now." Sesshomaru turned to the group as he began again. "Let's go, everyone. We're going to jump through the well now."

"WHAT?" The group all yelled

"Just trust me."

As Sesshomaru made his wish, the group jumped into the blue light that emerged from the well.


(Modern Times)

"So what happened next?" Kagome asked.

"Well, we all awoke here" Miroku replied.

"We all had memories of our past lives and of you" Sango started, "and we also had memories of how our families past on here in this life as well. We have two sets of memories, the one from the feudal era and the one from our lives here."

"It is kinda weird" Shippo added, "My memories of life here have me as part of Inuyasha's family since day one"

"So are you all human?" Kagome asked.

"Well no." Sesshomaru replied, "Inuyasha, Naoki, Shippo, and I have spells or charms on your bodies that give us the appearance of being human, but we are still demons. There are in fact many demons that dwell in this world, but humans are unaware."

"Oh" was all Kagome could reply. "So what exactly did you wish?"

"That is of no concern." Sesshomaru replied, "What matters is that it worked and we are all here. We all have our own homes, apartments or houses, and we are here for you now."

"I guess you're right." Kagome stated, standing. "Well, ready to go surprise mom?"

"Do we get steak?" Inuyasha asked

"Sure" Kagome replied as she laughed and led the group off to her house.


A/N: Okay, that is it for this story, and I mean it this time. Love's Labour Lost and Lost But Found have now come to an end.
