And now, On With The Show.






"Hai, Sesshoumaru-sama!"


"Hai, Sesshoumaru-sama!" Then, in all innocence,"What manners?"

"Sit properly."

"Oooh. Okay," she tucked her feet beneath her and rolled up onto her knees, "Is Rin sitting correctly now, Sesshoumaru-sama?"

Sesshoumaru looked at her out of the corner of his eye, but said nothing. Rin correctly interpreted this as "Yes."

"Hah. Stupid little human, can't even..." grumbled Jaken, eyeing the little girl balefully.

Rin, who had quickly grown out of being intimidated by the small demon, retorted gleefully, "Can too, Jaken-sama. Sesshoumaru-sama said so."

"Sesshoumaru-sama said nothing of the sort, you little liar!"

"Well, Sesshoumaru-sama looked so. Same thing! So there!"

"He di- still- well, you should have done it right the first time, brat!" sputtered Jaken.

Sesshoumaru, who had been contemplating the forest at the edge of the clearing, allowed himself to feel surprised. Did they know him so well? Was is so strange that they should? No, no, it didn't feel strange at all. In fact, it felt rather, might one say - pleasing? Perhaps. Perhaps not.The youkai lord felt something welling up in his chest, and decided, on a whim, to let it loose.

On the edge of the forest at sunset, Sesshoumaru chuckled.




Wahah! I have finally discovered the "ruler" button! HAH! I pwn you, RULER-BUTTON!

Ahem. I have calmed down now.

I wrote most of this one while at work...eheh. Well, you see, I was doodling Sesshoumaru, and I started doodling Rin beside him, and then I thought...Rin's not sitting in a very lady-like position. What would Sesshoumaru say? The doodle is on my deviantart account. (Called "Contemplation.") Um I plead a case of extremely boring job...Can't wait to go back to school. Whee!
