Through Her Eyes

Chapter 2: Tessa and Datherine

Inuyasha skidded to a halt as he reached the clearing where the woman was floating. Kagome, Sango, Miroku, and Shippo arrived in seconds after, the group all looking up at the woman suspiciously. She looked to be around 18 years old with dark brown hair and black eyes. She had her arms crossed and was smiling evilly at them. To Kagome's surprise, she was wearing jeans and a cotton black t-shirt that said, "Can't touch this" in white lettering.

"She's from the future!" Kagome hissed to her friends. They all gaped at her for a moment before getting into battle positions.

"Well, aren't you all trusting?" The woman said with a smirk. Inuyasha growled, putting his hand to Tetsusaiga.

"What do you…" he began, but cut himself off with a sniff. Putting his nose to the air he inhaled deeply and started to growl low in his chest. "Damnit."

"Inuyasha? What's wrong?" Sango asked, never taking her eyes off the woman.

"My damn half brother and another dog demon are headed this way." The hanyou reported grumpily. The strange woman frowned.

"Another…?" Her eyes widened as she snarled. "She's still alive?" As if on cue, someone burst through the trees on their left and stopped, glaring at the floating woman. It was a female dog demon.

"So you have returned you coward." The new woman spat contemptuously. This woman wore a slightly baggy red hakama, and a black chest wrap covered with a tied ripped haori that looked like it had seen better days. She had claws on her bare feet and hands as well as fangs that she was currently bearing at the floating woman.

"Datherine. What an… unpleasant surprise." The woman sneered, looking down her nose at her opponent.

"Tessa." The woman called Datherine said coolly. "I'm actually quite glad to see you. I can finally rip you apart."

"Are all dog demons so aggressive?" Kagome exclaimed out loud. Her eyes widened and with an 'eep' she laughed nervously "Whoops… heh heh…" Inuyasha glared at her, Datherine quirked an eyebrow at her and the others chuckled quietly. Inuyasha looked past the rivals to the other side of the field and growled again. Sesshoumaru arrived and studied them all emotionlessly as Rin and Jaken ran up behind him.

"You're late." Tessa yawned, laying down in midair to stare coldly at the dog demon lord.

"I am never late." He replied icily.

"Well now that you're all here…" Tessa stopped as she flew back to avoid being decapitated by Datherine.

Datherine landed deftly and shot towards her again, katana out and gleaming. Tessa scowled and swiped her hand towards the oncoming woman. With a yell, Datherine flew back into a tree and fell. Coming to her senses, she back flipped off the tree, but before she could attack again, Tessa held up a hand and a clear yellow substance shot at her foe. With a gasp, Datherine was enfolded in the energy. She scowled and struggled violently.

"You've gotten rusty without me, Dathy Darling." Tessa cooed mockingly. The female demon growled savagely. "As I was saying, before I was so rudely interrupted; now that you're all here, my fun can begin!" the evil woman clapped delightedly and held up a hand again. Her audience tensed. Suddenly, Kagome and Sango felt an odd force pushing them forward. Sango grunted and dug her heels into the ground as Kagome gasped and struggled when she started to be dragged towards Tessa. The boys stared at them.

"Kagome! Sango!" Inuyasha yelled as the girls lost their fight and went flying forward to the middle ground. He and Miroku leapt forward only to be thrown back when they ran into a clear yellow wall.

"Uh uh uh!" Tessa chuckled, wagging a finger at them.

"Who the hell are you?" Inuyasha roared. Tessa grinned.

"I thought you'd never ask." She said sweetly. "I'm Tessa! Priestess extraordinar!"

"Not likely." Sesshoumaru scoffed. She turned to him.

"Watch it, Fluffy." She smirked wickedly. He raised an eyebrow.

"What did you call me?" he asked in disgust. She simply grinned and held up a hand. "What are you going to do?" he inquired with amusement. "I have no woman to take."

"Oh?" Tessa queried, she made a fist. Rin screamed and in a flash was up in the evil woman's grasp. Sesshoumaru's eyes widened and then his facial features melted into a slight scowl as he watched another yellow wall spring up, barring him from lunging at the evil lady.

"You'll pay for that." He told her.

"Hmm, I'm so scared." Tessa mocked, wrapping her arm around Rin's waist and her hand around the young girl's throat. Rin whimpered.

"Ses-sesshoumaru-sama…" she pleaded. The lord balled his hands into fists but he resumed his impassive face.

"Monster!" Datherine snarled. "She's just a child!"

"Oh honestly Dathy, when has that ever mattered to me?" Tessa scoffed, digging her nails into the young girl's flesh. She started to cry. Datherine ran forward but stopped when her enemy held the girl away from her by the arm. "One wrong move…" Tessa snapped her fingers and a clear blue blade shone on her left hand, which she placed on the girl's neck, "and the girl dies."

"Bitch!" Inuyasha yelled, ramming into the wall. Miroku was shaking with rage. Sango and Kagome stood up and glared at the woman, their eyes filled with loathing. Sesshoumaru's eyes were flashing and his knuckles had gone white. Tessa laughed cruelly and suddenly flung the girl away from her. Rin screamed and flailed. Sesshoumaru started to ram the wall himself. Sango and Kagome gasped and froze in shock. Datherine roared and her bonds burst. Immediately the youkai leapt up and caught the girl safely in her arms, landing gently.

"Shhhh, little one." Dath said comfortingly. "It's okay. I've got you." She cradled the trembling girl as Rin cried into her shoulder, holding tightly to Dath's neck. Datherine's eyes never left Tessa's. The witch pouted as everyone relaxed slightly. Sesshoumaru fixed Datherine with his gaze.

"You ruin all my fun." Tessa whined with an evil grin.

"I'm ever so sorry." Datherine sneered dryly.

"What do you want?" Sango shouted angrily. Tessa yawned and hung upside down, looking her.

"I'm bored, Slayer." She said. Sango gasped and stepped back. "I need entertainment."


"Oh I know about all of you." (A/N: Okay this is all pretty much a summary of everything I know about Inuyasha, so you can skip this if you wish.) She pointed to Inuyasha, "Inuyasha, a half dog demon, half human. Searched for the Shikon jewel all his life to become a full youkai. Got to know the priestess Kikyo," she smirked at Kagome, "that protected the jewel and fell in love with her. Naraku deceived you into thinking Kikyo and yourself were attacking one another. You went and stole the jewel and Kikyo sealed you to the God Tree. Kikyo died and had the jewel burned with her. You spent 50 years in suspended animation until…" She moved on to Kagome, "Kagome, girl from the future, reincarnation of Kikyo. A miko, you jumped down the Bone Eater's well in your time and ended up here where you gazed upon Inuyasha for the first time. One Mistress Centipede attacked you and you freed Inuyasha. The demoness ripped open your side to expose… the Shikon jewel." She smirked and continued. "Of course, being the idiot failure you are, you shattered the jewel when a crow demon stole it and you shot it with an arrow. That started the journey." Kagome bowed her head, letting her bangs shield her eyes. The dark priestess moved her finger to Shippo, "Shippo was the first to join the team. He was trying to avenge his dear father and family from the two brothers that killed them. Kagome and Inuyasha helped you and you became fiercely loyal to them." Tessa moved on to Sango, who was glaring at her, "Sango, demon slayer of a great demon exterminating village. Lived with her father and brother, before one Naraku tricked your entire village and slaughtered them. Possessed your dear brother to finish you off and then killed him. Of course, you didn't die, but your brother did. Naraku brought him back with a jewel shard to use as a weapon against you. You're looking for revenge." Her finger snapped to Miroku, "And of course the lecherous monk, Miroku. He is cursed with the wind tunnel on his left hand. It is passed down from generation to generation from a curse set on you by… Naraku. You are doomed to the same fate as your father. Every year that wind tunnel gets bigger until the day when it sucks in your very flesh and bone. You want to break that curse." She turned to Sesshoumaru, " You are Inuyasha's older full demon half brother that longs for your father's Tetsusaiga which he left for Inuyasha. You travel with Jaken, your servant and Rin, your…" she rolled her eyes, "pup. You saved her from demon wolves that had fixed to make her their meal. You brought her back from the dead and she's been with you ever since."

(You may resume reading now.)

Everyone just stared at her. How the hell did she get all this information? The woman yawned and turned to Datherine.

"You can tell them our story. I don't feel like it."

"I'll pass. Thanks." Datherine growled. Rin jumped out of her arms and ran to the barrier between her and her Sesshoumaru-sama. Datherine's eyes widened.

"Rin!" the girl stopped and looked at her. "Don't touch that clear yellow stuff!"

"Oh, no!" Tessa cackled, "Please, Rin! Touch it!" Rin looked at her fearfully and backed away from the wall. She looked up at Sesshoumaru.

"Sesshoumaru-sama…" she whispered. Sesshoumaru stared at her and let his gaze soften.

"Rin-" he began, but Tessa cut him off.

"Ever so sorry to interrupt this…" she sneered, "precious moment, but I have business to attend to." Sesshoumaru glared.

"Pray that I don't get my hands on you, priestess. For if I do, you'll be wearing your stomach as a necklace." He told her emotionlessly. He fumed silently when she laughed.

"I'm sure I will dog boy." She told him before turning to the females in front of her, who looked ready to kill. "Go ahead. Try to attack me."

"Oh this girl is really asking for it!" Sango seethed and went for her Hiraikotsu. Instantly, she felt lightheaded and couldn't move. She dropped to her knees.

"Sango!" Miroku yelled as Kagome rushed to her side.

"Bitch!" Inuyasha roared. "You'll pay for hurting my friends!"

"Spare me." Tessa rolled her eyes. "I'm not after them." They all stared in horror as she began to glow. She closed her eyes and began to chant. Before anyone could blink, there was a blinding flash of light and they knew no more.
