Chapter 1: An Injured Miko and her Wish
"He deserved it though."
It was the daily routine. Kagome wants to go home, Inuyasha declines, Kagome sits him, Shippo calls him an idiot, Sango sympathizes and Miroku thinks he deserves it.
"I have a major math exam though Inuyasha."
Inuyasha growled as the spell wore off. "Yea well in this time, women don't need this 'math' crap!"
"Uh oh…" Sango winced.
"AHH!" Inuyasha kissed dirt again.
"Why do you keep doing that?" He growled as the spell wore off again.
"Because you deserve it."
"WHY? Just because I want to search for Naraku and get our jewel shards back don't mean you can sit me any damn time you want Ka-go-me!" He stressed her name out.
"And to think all that I've done for you." Kagome shook her head.
"NAME ONE!" Inuyasha roared as he stood up.
Shippo, Kirara, Miroku and Sango decided to keep out of this.
"Freed you from the Goshinboku for one." Kagome eyed him.
"Yea well, that doesn't count." Inuyasha smirked.
"Actually, if I hadn't released you, the Shikon jewel wouldn't have come out of my body…"
"Yea it would have! If you hadn't released me you would have died! Name another!"
"Saved you from the Spider at the temple where Nazuda lived."
"Well excuse me! Next time when you wanna lay on my lap and tell me I smell nice, remind me of today!" Kagome screamed.
Miroku raised a brow. "Smell nice?"
Kagome giggled nervously. "Never mind." She murmured before walking away.
"DON'T YOU WALK AWAY FROM ME!"
"SIT!" Kagome screamed again.
"NOO!" Inuyasha again.
"Poor guy, he's gonna pull his back." Miroku shook his head.
"KAGOME!" Inuyasha roared as the rosary's spell wore off and he jumped after them.
"Why do you need all this math crap anyways?" He asked as he walked beside her.
"If I want a pursue a living in my time."
"Well for the time being, you live here, not there."
"I live in both era's Inuyasha." Kagome shook her head.
"What the hell would it take to keep you here?"
"If I were to be a hanyou." Kagome replied as she left Inuyasha pondering her last line.
'If I were to be a hanyou?'
"HEY!" Inuyasha roared as he ran after them again.
They walked in quiet after that. Inuyasha lagged behind with Kagome and Sango up front. Miroku tried to 'talk' to Inuyasha, if that were possible.
"You should really let her go Inuyasha." He said.
"Why?" Inuyasha growled
"Because, she has truly done many things for us. When we went after Kohaku in Naraku's castle, Kagome was the one who made the miasma go away, it was Kagome who saved you from Kaguya's spell in the Castle of Mirrors and it was her arrow that helped you defeat Menomaru."
"And don't forget it was Kagome who helped you kill the Spider Head and it was her arrow that made the Peach man turn back to human." Shippo chirped in.
"You two are making me loose it!" Inuyasha roared.
"Just stating the facts my friend." Miroku grinned.
"Shut up bouzo." Inuyasha growled as he continued to walk.
They were silent for two minutes before Sango called them.
"Hey you three! Come here quick!" She called as Kagome, Kirara and her self ran towards a small stream.
Inuyasha, Miroku and Shippo ran behind them and when they reached where the girls are, they gasped.
"Is she dead?" Shippo said as Kagome poked her.
"No, not yet. I still sense a life force in her." Miroku murmured as Sango and Kagome helped the lady out of the stream.
Inuyasha picked the old woman up as Sango laid a blanket from Kagome's bag on the floor.
"I think there's water in her lungs." Miroku said as he bent in front of her.
"Then we need to do CPR." Kagome murmured.
"CPR…what the hell is that?" Inuyasha asked.
Kagome's eyes widened. 'Does that mean I have to perform CPR on her?'
Kagome moved Shippo out of the way and opened the old miko's air hole. She then breathed in her mouth two times to see if it did go in. Miroku, Sango, Shippo, Kirara and Inuyasha watched in amazement.
Kagome did 15 chest compressions before breathing into her mouth twice again. This routine went for 6 times before the miko coughed out water and slowly opened her eyes.
"Magic Kagome," Shippo said.
"Nah, just medical stuff." Kagome grinned as she stood up and Sango bent down to help the poor woman up. Kagome gave her a towel to dry herself up in.
"We should really nurse her back," Shippo said.
"Forget it, we have jewel shards to look for."
"INUYASHA!" Kagome screamed. Inuyasha cringed as he saw Kagome glaring at him.
Inuyasha frowned as he turned to Miroku. "Let's look for firewood."
"You have him wrapped around your finger." Sango giggled as Kagome put a pillow under her head.
He lady had her eyes opened but she was having tough time breathing. She did look old, perhaps Kaede's age.
"Why do you think she was drowning?" Sango asked.
"I dunno, it's unlikely for a miko to fall and drown."
"How can you tell she's a miko Kagome?" Shippo asked.
"Look at her clothes Shippo. They look like something Kaede, Kikyo or Tsubaki would wear." Kagome murmured as she got a bottle of water out for the lady. Sango helped her sit up as Kagome generously poured water into her mouth.
The lady gulped it down before finally coming back to reality.
"Who are you? Where am I?" She asked, looking frightened.
"I'm Kagome, and this is Shippo, Kirara and Sango. We found you in the stream unconscious and we helped you." Kagome said as she handed the water bottle to the miko who seemed like she regained her strength.
She nodded as she looked thankful towards the four.
"You four are generous. You are very kind."
"It comes with the duty." Sango said.
"When are Miroku and Inuyasha coming back?" Kagome asked turning to Sango.
"I think Miroku is hunting for firewood and Inuyasha is hunting for food." Sango replied.
The lady's eyes widened. "Inuyasha, the hanyou Inuyasha?"
Kagome nodded. "Yes him, do you know of him?"
"Not entirely, but I do know stories of him." She said.
"Priestess, tell us your name." Sango said.
"My name, Konoharu." She said, her wrinkles falling over her lips.
"Konoharu-san," Kagome started, "how did you fall into the stream?"
"Lots of demons were after me and I was trying to evade. I managed to come upon this cliff and I decided, then to abide to these demons, I'd rather destroy myself, so I jumped." Said Konoharu.
"What were they after?" Shippo asked.
Konoharu smiled. "A wish."
Kagome's eyes widened. "A Wish? What wish? But if you are a miko, couldn't you purify them?"
Konoharu smiled. "That's the beauty of priestesses dear Kagome. There are many kinds. For instance, Priestess Kikyo was a guardian Miko. She guarded the Shikon no Tama and she would always apply powers of guarding. Priestess Kaede specializes in Medicine. She can create many medicine and cure many ailments. Priestess Tsubaki was a dark one. She can control the darkness in ones heart. And you, Priestess Kagome, you control purification."
Kagome's eyes widened. "You can tell I'm a priestess?"
"You emit the purity aura of one dear Kagome." Konoharu smiled as she sipped her water.
Kagome turned to Shippo who was staring at Konoharu.
Just then Inuyasha and Miroku came.
"So she's awake eh?" Inuyasha asked as he dropped some fish in front of Kagome.
"Konoharu, this is Inuyasha and Miroku." Kagome said.
"Konoharu just explained to us the different specialty of Miko's." Shippo said.
"You're very wise Priestess. Tell us, what do you specialize in?" Sango asked.
Konoharu looked at the gang. "You seem very trustworthy. I specialize in Wish granting. During the lifetime of a Wish granting Miko, we are bestowed with 150 wishes to grant. Over time, we do eventually run out. Demons can sense the powers of a Wish granting miko and they come after us. But alas, I but only have 1 wish remaining."
"Is the wish stronger then the Shikon no Tama?" Inuyasha asked
"You might say that, but for the Shikon no Tama, there is no restriction. If it is an evil wish, the jewel is tainted and eventually the wish will reverse. If it is pure, the jewel is purified and is gone for eternity. A Wish granting miko however can choose who gets to wish upon her. If we choose, it is up to the wisher if they want good or evil. We know no good or evil when it comes to granting a wish and our wishes cannot ever be reversed."
"Not even by the Shikon no Tama?" Sango asked.
Konoharu shook her head. "No. It was the Priestess Midoriko that created the Shikon no Tama so the Shikon jewel cannot overrule a Wish granting Miko's powers."
"Wow, so basically you are stronger then the Shikon no Tama." Sango said.
"Not entirely. Shikon no Tama can last up to years if nobody makes the wish. I however eventually pass away and if there are wishes remaining, they too are eliminated." Said Konoharu.
"This is all to confusing!" Shippo said with swirled in his eyes.
"So can we ask a wish now and you'll grant it?" Miroku asked.
"No, I can choose who gets the wish."
Kagome shrugged. "Fair enough. Inuyasha, try and make Shippo understand all this, let's get cooking Sango."
Inuyasha frowned. "Why can't Miroku?"
"Because he has praying to do," Sango said gesturing to the praying Miroku.
"I am traveling with a bunch of loonies." Inuyasha muttered before going to explain everything to Shippo.
Finally after hours of trying to get Shippo to understand, he finally got it.
"Inuyasha! You could have started by saying she grants wishes!" Shippo said as they walked back from the forest.
"Then you'd ask why, how, and what if!" Inuyasha growled.
"NO I WOULDN'T!" Shippo screamed.
"YES YOU WOULD!"
"NO I WOULDN'T!"
"YES YOU WOULD!"
"SHUT UP!" Sango and Miroku screamed at the same time.
Konoharu, Kagome, Sango, Miroku and Kirara were staring at Shippo and Inuyasha bickering.
"Stupid kit, don't get anything."
"AGH!" Inuyasha fell again.
"I hate that woman." He muttered before getting up.
It was sundown and the gang was eating. Inuyasha sat beside Kagome because Miroku smelt very dirty (he probably hasn't showered in ages), Sango smells very… well she just smells too. And well, Kagome smells nice.
'Why'd we have to help this Konoharu person?' Inuyasha asked himself as he gulped down his ramen.
"Save some for us Inuyasha! You never let me go home so I can't usually restock!"
"If it's restocking ramen, I'd let you go home everyday." Inuyasha grinned.
"Figures." Shippo muttered as he finished eating.
"Konoharu-san, you can sleep in our camp tonight, in case any demons come by." Kagome offered.
"Thank you dear Kagome, you are very nice," Konoharu said, her voice strained. Kagome had concern in her eyes as she advanced towards Konoharu.
Konoharu smiled and said. "Go to sleep child, everybody else has."
Indeed, Inuyasha was in his tree, Sango was nestled against Kirara, Miroku sleeping by a tree and Shippo and Kagome's sleeping bag.
Kagome smiled as she got in beside Shippo and just as her head touched the comforter, she fell asleep.
Konoharu couldn't however fall asleep. Her heart was straining to pump and she knew it was her time to die.
'If only this last wish would be used up,' she thought. Then she noticed Inuyasha's ears twitching.
'Inuyasha… he is one of those pure demons, who cares not of what others think. He cares for his pack, especially the miko I've noticed. Inuyasha, you shall get my remaining wish.'
Konoharu stood up and walked under the branch Inuyasha was sitting at.
"Inuyasha?" She strained out.
"What old hag?" He growled back.
"I need to ask you a favour."
Inuyasha sighed as he jumped down in front of her. "What? If it's carry you to the stream then forget it."
"No. You know I'm a Wish granting miko correct?"
"I fear it is my time to die. For helping me, I shall grant you a single wish..."
Inuyasha's eyes widened as he looked at Konoharu. "Are you serious?" He asked.
Konoharu nodded as she clutched her heart. "But you must hurry."
Inuyasha looked at Kagome and instantly what she said earlier popped into his head.
'If I were to be a hanyou.'
'Kagome, don't you dare hate me after this.' He thought as he turned to Konoharu.
"I wish Kagome was a inu-hanyou."
Konoharu smiled. "Granted Inuyasha." And just when she said that a light purple light glowed around her and her body disintegrated and left in little beams of light.
'I guess that's how Wish miko's die.' He thought as he leapt back into his tree.
'Kagome, an inu-hanyou.' He thought as he looked at his miko companion.
Ta dum! Like the first chapter? Yea well, I tried and I thought it was pretty good!
Stay tuned! The action (and humour) begins soon!
