THIS IS GOING OT BE THE LAST CHAPTER PEOPLE!
Chapter 15: Home in your arms
I ran into the clearing just as Inuyasha and his companions turned to leave.
"Sesshomaru," Sango said in surprise, "what are you doing here?"
"Where is Megan?" I asked.
They were all silent, none of them willing to tell me the truth.
"She's gone, thanks to you," Inuyasha finally said.
I growled, "And what is that supposed to mean little brother?"
"To drove her away! She loved you and you drover her away!" he yelled.
I was silent. There was nothing that I could say. He was right. I had driven her away. I was too late.
Clenching my fists I turned and leaped into the air, eager to get as far away from them as possible. When I was determined that they wouldn't follow at sat at the top of a tree and did something I hadn't done since my mother's death.
I was surprised when I felt the first tear trickle down my cheek. But I didn't try to stop them from coming.
I had lost her. The only women I had ever loved and she was gone forever. I had never gotten the chance to tell her how I feel.
I opened my eyes and found myself staring up at the most beautiful night sky I had ever seen. The moon was a sliver of light surrounded by thousands of stars.
When I leaned up my head throbbed and I remembered where I was. I was in the well, back in my own time.
Looking up I found a vine that looked strong enough to climb up.
A vine? That's weird.
After a few minutes of forced labor I finally hoisted myself over the edge and fell to the grass.
Grass? What the hell?
I looked around me. Everything was pitch black but I could still make out the silhouette of a forest.
"It didn't work," I whispered.
I must have hit the bottom of the well and gone unconscious. That would explain why my head hurt so much.
Tears filled my eyes.
How could it not work? I had the jewel…the jewel. Where was it?
Looking into my hand I saw that it was still there.
"Worthless piece of shit."
What was I going to do? I was stuck in a time that didn't want me. I couldn't stay here. I had no reason too! Sesshomaru didn't care so what was the point? At least in my time I could have gotten therapy until I believed that this had all been a dream…
But now I was stuck in the messed up reality.
I cried harder.
Salt. I could smell salt.
Salt from someone crying nearby.
"Megan," I whispered and jumped to my feet.
Just as I turned back towards the well it began to rain.
You have got to be kidding me!
As if my life isn't messed up enough! Now mother nature has to be against me and make it rain!
Someone shoot me, please.
Not caring anymore, I just sat in the rain, resting my head on my knees.
I didn't hear anyone approach. Not until the rain seemed to hit something other then myself.
When I looked up I was shocked to see…
"Sesshomaru," I whispered, "what are you doing here?"
"I came to find you," he said.
"It didn't work. I couldn't get through the well and now I'm stuck here!"
He knelt in front of me and lifted my face with his hand. My heart beat started to beat ten times faster.
"Come back to the castle," he said softly, "you are going to catch your death out here."
I knocked his hand away and stood up, "Why do you care?" I yelled.
He just looked at me, rain dripping from his soaked hair.
Wow he looked good wet…
THAT'S NOT THE POINT!
How dare he come when I was busy feeling sorry for myself! How dare he come and make emotions rush through me when I swore that I would never feel them for him again. How dare he care!
I started to walk away when he grabbed my shoulder and turned me around. I smacked his hand, "Don' touch me!" I said as more tears fell down my face, mixing with the rain.
But he didn't listen, he placed both of his hands on either side on my face and made me look at him.
"Why did you come?" I said, venom dripping from my voice.
"Because I love you," he said simply.
Then he placed his lips against mine.
That's a pretty good reason…I guess…
His kiss was filled with so much emotion that I would have stumbled if he hadn't wrapped his arm around my waist, pulling me closer. His kiss was filled with love, passion, relief, and guilt.
Instantly forgetting why I was so mad at him I wrapped my arms around his neck and kiss him back.
Pulling back for breath I whispered against his lips, "I love you too."
And then we were kissing again, the rain falling on our heads.
It was at that moment that I knew where I belonged. I belong right here, in his arms.
And I would forever stay there.
