Authors Notes: Hey guys. Guess what? I don't even have MS Word anymore. Yeah, it sucks because that was my favorite writing application. But I downloaded this really interesting program that's exactly like word, except it sounds like a typewriter when I type, which is oddly comforting. Dunno why, just is. (And if it gets annoying I can turn the sound off) Well, I had to reread the entire story, which took all day (I took a break to watch a Naruto episode I downloaded). I'm trying to get over my depression about losing my stories. The good thing is I still remember every story idea, so I can expand from there and I haven't lost anything in reality. Not to mention old notes I had written down about them.

Well, here it is everyone, I'm posting this right after midnight,well,five a.m. to be honest. I bushed. So Happy St. Paddy's Day. The quote for the day…I got it off someone's profile here on "You're never really drunk until you trip over the pattern in the carpet."


Thanks are at the bottom

Falls On Me

Chapter 26

Two days had passed, and Kagome watched Sesshoumaru leave the castle with the others. Only Sango and Miroku stayed behind to guard her, at Sesshoumaru's command.

"Do you think that they'll all come back?" Sango asked in a quiet whisper.

"Of course! All of them are skilled fighters and can take down Naraku. Besides, I know… Damn it Sango. I need your help," Kagome told her friend. "And yours too Miroku."

"We'll do anything to help," Miroku said in a concerned voice. Sango nodded her head in agreement.

"Please, ignore any voices you here, ignore everything. Just pretend I'm in my room and don't look in on me okay?" Kagome asked.

"Kagome, what are you up to?" Sango asked.

"Just trust me."

"You're joking right? Kagome please, what are you going to do?" Sango asked.

"I'm going to the battle."

"WHAT!" Sango screeched.

"Sango, I don't have a choice."

"You're kidding. There's always a choice Kagome," Miroku told her.

"Not when my mate's life is on the line,"Kagome said. Miroku and Sango both nodded, suddenly understanding the why of the situation. They just didn't understand the how.

"The Dragons are taking me. Guys, please stay here. You have children to live for," Kagome told them.

"No way! I'm in this as deep as you are. The least the dragons could for me is take me with you," Sango muttered as she went into the room. Miroku nodded and walked into the bedroom too.

What they saw was a circle set up, the ring itself being outline by candles.

"Okay then guys, get into the circle, we don't have any more time."

Sesshoumaru watched as the pseudo youkai charged at him again. Sesshoumaru knew why. No matter what his half brother would always hate him, even if his memories had been sealed.

However, the memories were out and Inu Yasha knew everything. And the hanyou wasn't one bit about it.

"Sesshoumaru, watch out behind you!" Okibi shouted. Sesshoumaru dodged just in time to evade the oni that had a claw ready to strike.

"Where did they all come from?" Ferimaru shouted as she dodged another bolt of thunder from a random youkai.

"They joined him when they saw how strong he was. Better to be the devil's right hand than his enemy," Okibi shouted as she sent another wave of fire at Inu Yasha.

"We can't keep up like this or he'll win!" Anei shouted, using his katana to destroy one youkai after the other. His Shadows from Hell were swarming over as many youkai as they could, but it wasn't enough. It seemed as if there was no end to them.

Sesshoumaru felt his side being ripped open and he looked down to see that his brother was there, claws dug deep into the skin.

"Thought you could have my wife did you?" Inu Yasha snarled.

"She's not your wife, she's my mate!" Sesshoumaru bellowed as he punched Inu Yasha. Finally, after everything had happened, he would be able to take proper revenge on his brother.

"So how good is she to you. Probably never as good as she was to me," Inu Yasha said with a smirk.

"No, she's better to me. Because I treat her as she should be treated!" Sesshoumaru said as he punched his brother again. "I don't strike her." Another punch to Inu Yasha's now bleeding face. "I don't rape her." Another blow, this time to the hanyou's solar plexus.

"She will never love you," Inu Yasha spat as he threw a punch, and missed.

"You're wrong, she already does. But most of all, she's carrying my pup," Sesshoumaru bellowed as he punched the hanyou's throat. Inu Yasha went down grabbing his throat, trying to get breath.

"She can't," Inu Yasha began.

"She can, ad she is. She is my mate, my Queen, and my savior. You are a fool Inu Yasha," Sesshoumaru said as he walked from Inu Yasha.

"Do-Don't turn your back on me 'big brother'. You've forgotten that I'm still strong!" Inu Yasha snarled as he jumped towards Sesshoumaru.

However, a bright burst of light blinded him and some sort of energy sent him flying back.

Everyone in the field watched, amazed, as the light faded and Kagome was seen, flanked by her two best friends.

"Kagome, what are you doing here?" Sesshoumaru bellowed.

Kagome walked resolutely towards the hanyou who lay still a few feet away.

"Inu Yasha," Kagome said in a quiet, commanding voice.

"Wench, it's you. You've got powers. I wonder how a miko would taste, even if she is a whore," Inu Yasha snarled as he grabbed Kagome arm. Kagome smiled and as everyone watched, paralyzed, Kagome was absorbed into Inu Yasha.

"NO!" Sesshoumaru howled as he threw himself at his brother.

But something strange was happening and he stopped short as Inu Yasha began to jerk wildly, as if he no longer had control of his limbs.

The sky began to turn gray. Everyone looked towards the heavens when they heard a loud roar. The clouds seemed to be churning, and Sesshoumaru couldn't be sure, but he thought he saw something.

"Oh my god," Okibi breathed. The other phoenixes moved towards her, their faces covered in golden tears.

"We did not forget you," A voice rumbled.

It was a dragon!

"Keiei? Oh gods, it can't be you," Okibi said in a tremulous whisper.

"The little miko wished for us to help you defeat the hanyou, and here we are," Keiei said, just before turning around and roaring.

Several roars responded, and suddenly victory was assured as the dragons went forth and began to merely swallow all of the offending youkai.

Finally there was only Inu Yasha. Everyone watched as Okibi and the rest of the original phoenixes surrounded him and began to sing, only there were no words.

Inu Yasha's true form as he was then was revealed. He looked similar to Naraku, all earth and tentacles. Then, one by one, youkai were leaving the mass, and becoming their own selves again. Little by little mass shrank, and the youkai that feel from him were purified. Some were left alive, and Sesshoumaru assumed they were te one pulled in against their will.

Finally there was just Inu Yasha.

But no Kagome.

"Where is she?" Sesshoumaru demanded.

"She is gone," Keiei told him bluntly.

"No. She wouldn't have done this to me. She promised me!" Sesshoumaru snarled.

"Sleep, you battle is over," Keiei whispered.

"NO!" Sesshoumaru shouted. But suddenly he felt himself falling, like he was being sucked into the ground.

"Kagome, Kagome dear, wake up," A familiar voice said. Kagome stirred lightly and smiled when she opened her eyes to see her mother standing over her.

"Hello mama. I had the strangest dream," Kagome muttered as she rubbed the sleep out of her eyes.

"I don't think it was a dream," Mrs. Higurashi told her daughter with a smirk.

"What are you talking about mama?"

"Kagome, did you happen to get married in the past week by any chance?" Mrs. Higurashi asked.

"How am I supposed to answer that?" Kagome asked, feeling trapped by her mother's intense glare.


"Kind of."

"What do you mean 'kind of'?"

"Technically we're just mates. What a minute mama. Why are you asking me this?" Kagome asked, suddenly confused.

"Well, you have a 'mate' downstairs that's fascinated with the stove and who's already threatened to kill Buyo. He said to let you sleep because you were pregnant. How can you be pregnant, isn't it too soon to tell?" Mrs. Higurashi asked.

"It's a youkai thing."

"What about those adorable children. And that baby. That can't be your baby," Mrs. Higurashi said.

"Oh boy. It wasn't a dream," Kagome sighed as she thumped back onto the bed.

"You're awake," A new voice said. Kagome turned to see Sesshoumaru smiling at her from the door.

"I'll just leave you two alone," Mrs. Higurashi said as she left the room. Her tone however, said that she wanted the full story, soon.

"Your mother is a very strong woman, very brave too," Sesshoumaru said with a smile.

"Sesshoumaru, how did you get here?" Kagome asked.

"I think it was Keiei. I don't know how, but right after he told me you were gone, he told me to sleep, that my battle was over. I woke up here. Shippou, Rin, and Maru were here too, pilled on top of us. I'm surprised your bed didn't break."

"Oh god, this is going to be hard to explain," Kagome sighed.

"I don't think so. I think was what was fated."

"The fates have a screwy sense of humor," Kagome sighed as she pulled him onto the bed with her and moved closer to his body.

"You saved my life," Kagome told him.

"You saved my world," He told her.

A few seconds went by in peaceful silence, suddenly there was a crashing noise downstairs as Mrs. Higurashi slammed the door and started shouting for them.

"Could you save me?" He finally asked her, nuzzling his nose into her skin.

Authors Notes: I might re-write this chapter into something longer and more detailed. I most likely will, because it pisses me off how much I don't like this chapter. It won't end here, there's an epilogue I'll post in a couple of days. I'm sorry I wrapped it up like this guys, but it sounds bad, but I wanted it finished, it was a driving force, yet my brain is totally fried. I quit my job (anyone ever been to waffle house? Yeah, don't work there. I quit because my manager is a backstabbing asshat) and I have an interview tomorrow. I'm doing some testing at the end of this month and trying to save for college. (prays to get job as secretary). Yeah I know, it doesn't sound exciting, but I'm seventeen, what can I hope for right now. Blah. Anyways, I wanted to say thank you guys, and happy St. Paddy's day. Here's my thanks.

Shadowcat1028: Thank you. You made me feel better, like perhaps I wasn't a total wuss for crying about losing the stories.

Tsuyoi84: I hope this was good enough. I know it prolly sux. I might even re-write it. Seriously contemplating it. Worship? Wow. I'm not gonna let that go to my head. Because then I'll mess up. But thank you.

Bluediamond-hime: Thank you. You are my hero, you know that right?

Sweetkijo:Brothers are also for target practice. Oops, did I say that? Hehe. Thanks for the support.

Tsurara Hime: I wouldn't go so far as committing suicide over it, but I did contemplate bashing my head into the fried motherboard for awhile there….

YoukaiSesshoumaruLover: My boyfriend and I are getting along well. I've started reading your first story and liked it btw. Hmm, sounds like you don't like your neighbor too much. Well, thank you for the support, and cant wait to get the linkage.

Tasha600: Thank you and I hope I didn't disappoint you.

The painted Lady: Thank you for your support. It's not a dell, it's a franken-computer. Basically it's built from scratch. Since some parts are only a year old, I used those, got a new motherboard,hard drive,and processor,as well as a new cd burner. Yeah. I'm so in debt and looking for a job.

Leiral: Thank you for the support! I love it when people ask me to write more. But I think I'm gonna re-write this chapter. It sounds sucky to me.

Blinding Crimson Tears: Don't get over being Irish, it's awesome. My party tonight is going to be interesting. Half of us aren't drinking, the rest, they're sleeping downstairs and waking up with make-up on and their shoelaces tied to the studs of our unfinished basement walls if they make too much noise. (smiles). Happy St Paddys Day!

Thank You Everyone.
