Okay, this is my first attempt at a Sesshoumaru x Kikyou fanfic. I've long admired this pairing and have read almost every fanfic on this site that his them together in some way or another. I hate waiting for authors to update, so I decided to write my own story. Also, I can't stand Kagome x Sesshoumaru fics. I hate them with a great passion. So if that is what you are looking for, I suggest you not read this.
Disclaimer: I do not own Inuyasha. If I did, Sesshoumaru and Kikyou would be an official couple on the show and in the manga.
Oh, and this Fic will start out PG-13, but could become R in later chapters.
When Hazel Eyes Meet Golden
By Takari AAF
Chapter One: Break My Fall
A young woman with long dark raven hair sat idly under a flowering Sakura tree. The slight breeze teased her smooth locks and made the flower petals fall around her. Everything was silent until…
"Kikyou!" a girl's voice called out.
The woman sighed. "Yes?" she yelled back.
"Come here!" the person replied.
Kikyou got up and brushed off her black knee-length skirt and red tank top. So much for peace and quiet, she thought to herself as she walked to the house. Upon entering, she saw her sister running around, clothes and shoes lying everywhere.
"What may I ask is going on, Kagome?" Kikyou asked, a tad bit annoyed.
"I need help picking out an outfit for my date," she whined.
Kikyou rolled her eyes at her younger sister. "Get mother to help you then," she said, walking past her.
"But I need you to help me," Kagome said, stomping her foot.
She sighed and threw a black halter and mini-skirt at Kagome. "There: small and revealing, just how you like it," Kikyou said, dully.
Kagome blinked at her. "Are you upset with me?"
"No," she replied. "Just annoyed." And with that, she walked back outside and sat down on the porch steps.
She had no idea how long she had been sitting there, but it felt like it had been hours. Just as she was about to get up and go back inside, a black corvette pulled up the long driveway leading to the house.
What an intriguing… and familiar car ,she thought to herself.
A young man with long silver hair stepped out from inside the beautiful expensive corvette.
"Inuyasha!" she exclaimed, her mood instantly lifting.
She ran over to him and wrapped her arms around his neck.
"Uh…" he stuttered, pulling her off of him.
Kikyou looked up at him, puzzled. "What is wrong?"
"What are you doing here?" he asked, ignoring her question. She gave him a strange look.
"I live here."
His eyes widened in surprise. "You live here!" he exclaimed, shocked.
"Yes," she said, now fully confused.
"Oh shit… look, I'm not here to see you, Kikyou. I must have drove up to the wrong house," he said.
"What do you mean?" she asked, her hopes dashed.
Before he could reply, Kagome ran down the stairs. "INU!" she exclaimed, running up to him and placing a kiss on his lips.
Kikyou's eyes widened, not believing what was happening.
She pulled away and turned to them. "Sister, this is Inuyasha Taisho. Inuyasha, this is my older sister Kikyou. She is a priestess," she said in her perky voice.
"Err.. Hi there," he said, pretending as if he had never met her before.
Tears threatened to fall from her hazel orbs. She wanted more than anything to just die right then and there.
"Hello Mr. Taisho," Kikyou said, her voice faltering. A single tear escaped down her cheek before she squeezed her eyes shut and ran off blindly into the house.
Kagome raised an eyebrow at the fleeting image of her sister. "I wonder what that was all about… anyway, we better go," she said, smiling brightly. She went over and got into the passenger side of the black corvette. Inuyasha just stood there, staring at the spot Kikyou had stood only seconds before. "I'm sorry my little bellflower… we just weren't meant to be," he whispered, his words carried away with the wind. He turned his back and got into the car alongside Kagome, and drove off, leaving any thoughts of Kikyou behind.
/Inside the house/
Kikyou sat on the floor of her room, her eyes bloodshot from crying. In her hands, was a picture of her and Inuyasha together sitting on the swings at the park, only minutes after he had asked her to go on a date with him. Her eyes had been full of happiness, twinkling more than the stars in the midnight sky. It had been the happiest moment of her life. She had loved him with all of her heart… and though she hated to admit it, she still loved him. She hadn't believed him when he told her that he didn't love her and wasn't looking for a serious relationship. She just knew it was a lie. When she saw him got out of the car, she convinced herself he was there to tell her he really didn't mean what he said, that he wanted to get back together with her. It made her so happy. But she had been wrong. It wasn't her he was there to see… it wasn't her he was there to take out for a night on the town… it was Kagome. Oh how quickly she had been replaced!
"Maybe he meant it… he didn't love me nor did he want a real relationship… not once did he ever come to my house… not once did he ask to meet my family. I was just some chick that didn't turn out to be what he wanted," she said to herself, wiping the tears from her cheeks. "And yet… his first date with Kagome, and he comes to pick her up at her house! I feel like such a fool."
Kikyou shakily got up and straightened the wrinkles out of her skirt. She looked at herself in the mirror and sighed. "I feel pathetic… and why? Because if he came to me right now and asked me to take him back… I would do it in a heartbeat," she said to her reflection. "Oh how the mighty have fallen…"
"I need to get out of this house… I need to do something to get my mind off of him," she told herself. She went into the bathroom and washed and dried her face. She pulled her hair back into a high ponytail, making sure to get every strand up, and left the house.
/Streets of Tokyo/
Kikyou walked down the streets of Tokyo, taking in all the lights and merry voices around her. The night air was warm and comforting, the moon just starting to appear in the darkening sky. It was a little after 9, and the sun had finally slipped below the horizon. This was her favorite time of day, well night, to be correct.
Whiffs of exquisite Italian food filled her nostrils. She looked over at the Italian restaurant on her left, and stopped dead in her tracks. Inside, huddled together off in a corner, were Inuyasha and Kagome. He was holding her hand and whispering something in her ear, causing her to giggle and blush.
Before Kikyou knew what she was doing, she was running. She didn't know where to, but she kept on. Tears ran in streams down her face as she pushed past people, making her way through. How could you do this to me, Inuyasha! she screamed in her mind.
Suddenly, her right foot tripped over a ragged edge of concrete. She felt herself falling forward and prepared herself for the harsh impact of the sidewalk, when two arms encircled her waist, and a warm chest broke her fall.
Kikyou looked up, her eyes meeting a pair of golden orbs.
