A/N: Well here I go again. Sicne my story, Season X, didn't get me anywhere, I'm going to try a little something different. Something that sort of follows a long with the series. This storytakes place soon after episode 124 (Farewell, My Lovely Kikyou) I hope you guys like this one better than my first story.

Disclaimer: I don't not ownany characters, wepons, or mountainsmentioned in this chapter. All of them are owned by Rumiko Takahashi, who created them all. I do however, own this story and the events that take place. I also do not own the flash back scene. That came from episode 117. (Inuyasha Disappears in a River of Flames)

Chapter 1: Living For the 3rd Time

Bankotsu spun Banryuu above his head. A smirk appeared across his face as it knocked down a few trees. He stopped the halberd and brought it down to his level.

"I've never seen you cut so well," Bankotsu said smiling at the halberd.

"Big brother!" Jakotsu called. "Don't just stand there admiring your baby all day! We have work to do!"

Bankotsu rested Banryuu on his shoulder and turned around. "All right, all right, just keep your pants on, will ya?" he said as he walked towards Jakotsu. "Where are we heading?"

"We're going to find Inuyasha, of course!" Jakotsu said excitedly. "I almost can't wait!" He turned and began walking happily in the other direction. "My beloved Inuyasha!" he said. "I'll be so happy to see you again!"

Bankotsu laughed and followed closely behind him.


Inuyasha fell face-first into the ground. Kagome stood over him looking rather angry. She stood straight and crossed her arms. Inuyasha lifted is head from the dirt.

"Just what the hell was that for?" he asked growling.

"Serves you right," Kagome said.

Inuyasha jumped up and glared at the angry woman. "I did absolutely nothing to you! Why the hell did you say sit?"

Kagome didn't reply. Instead she turned and walked away. Inuyasha sat down on the ground. He looked to Miroku, Sango, Shippou, and Kirara.

"Will one of you please explain what I did?" he asked.

"Inuyasha, maybe Kagome was upset about something you did back on Mt. Hakurei," Miroku said. "Can you think of anything?"

Inuyasha thought back for a second. "Well, we weren't on Mt. Hakurei, but you guys were."

Flash back

Inuyasha crossed his arms and turned sideways. "Let's go, Kagome. We got him to safety. Now he can sort out weather he's living or dying, it ain't my concern." He said.

Kagome turned to Inuyasha. "Now Inuyasha! That's not very polite!" she exclaimed.

Inuyasha growled at Kagome. "Damnit woman! You're always lecturing me, but why don't you talk to that ingrate over there" he yelled pointing at Kouga.

Kouga jumped up. "Shut the hell up! I'm plenty grateful!" he reached over and grabbed Kagome's hand. "Thank you so much, Kagome. I wouldn't be here if not for you."

Inuyasha jumped in and grabbed Kouga's hand away from Kagome. "Don't you mean if not for me?" he asked angrily.

Kouga growled. "You're just her pack-mule," he said.

End flashback

"Hey, I remember that," Shippou said. "That was after you carried Kouga to that cave when he was injured by Ginkotsu."

Inuyasha nodded. "You remember what I said then?" Inuyasha asked.

Shippou nodded from Miroku's shoulder. "She could be mad about that."

"Damnit," Inuyasha said. "What did I get myself into?"

Kagome stood alone by a tree. She could still here Inuyasha trying to figure out why she was mad at him. The truth was, she wasn't angry with him. She was upset, but no one knew the reasons.

Kagome turned with a jolt to her right. "I sense jewel shards," she said. "There's two of them. Is it Kouga?"

She turned and glanced at Inuyasha. "No, if it was Kouga, Inuyasha would already have noticed."

She turned back and ran off through the trees. I'll find whoever has those shards, she thought.

Kagome ran through the trees. She felt the shards getting closer and closer until she found them.

Kagome found herself in a forest clearing, standing in front of Bankotsu and Jakotsu.

"Kagome," Bankotsu said.

Jakotsu smiled. "That means Inuyasha is close by!" he said happily.

"I don't get it," Kagome said. "You're supposed to be dead."
