Remember Me

Chapter 1

"Sesshy! Sesshy!" yelled a six-year-old Inuyasha running down the hall to his

older brother's room. Bursting into the empty room, the young half demon was

caught from behind and swung in the air. The child giggled and wrapped his

arms around Sesshomaru's neck. "Sesshy!"

"Inuyasha, what are you doing here?" asked the sixteen year old Sesshomaru

tickling his little brother. "You know father does not want you to disturb my


"I know," the little hanyou said pouting. "But you study too much. All that

studying can't be good for your brain."

Sesshomaru tightened his hold around his brother's waist and buried his nose

into the thick silver mass of Inuyasha's hair inhaling the child's scent.

"Come out and play with me Sesshy." Inuyasha looked up at his older brother. He

was so beautiful. The hanyou believed himself to be the luckiest boy in the world

to have such a brave, strong and beautiful brother. Inuyasha stared intensely into

his older brother's face as though trying to burn his imagine into his young mind. Long,

silver hair that glowed like the moon hung down the elder demon's back. Golden

amber orbs that shown like the stars when happy but became chips of ice if made

angry. Inuyasha reached up with his small clawed hands and stroked the side

of his brother's face.

Sesshomaru sighed closing his eyes and leaned into the gentle caress.

"Sesshy, do you hate me?" Inuyasha continued to caress the lavender strips on

the demon's cheek and the crescent moon on his forehead.

Sesshomaru eyes snapped opened and he stared in shock at his younger brother. "Why

would you ask something like that?"

"Well, I overheard some demons in the village talking. They said that I was a filthy

half breed and that everyone hates me." Little Inuyasha was fascinated by how soft

the strips were compared to the rest of his brother's face.

"Listen to me otouto; I will not lie to you. There are those demons and humans

that will hate you because you are half human," said Sesshomaru capturing

the small hand and kissing the palm. "But you know that what they think is not

important. Mother loves you and so does father."

"What about you, Sesshy?" Inuyasha stared up at him with those big, doe eyes.

"Do you love me?"

Sesshomaru held the younger boy tightly in his arms and kissed the top of his

head. "Of course I love you. You are my baby brother and I will always love


"I love you too Sesshy," said Inuyasha planting a kiss on his brother's lips.

"Do you really love me, little one?"

"Yes I do." Inuyasha wrapped his legs around Sesshomaru's waist.

"Will you always love me?" Sesshomaru said letting a ghost of a smile touch

his lips.

"I will love you until the end of time and even then my love will last for you,

forever." Vowed the little hanyou. "Because when I am older I will be your


Sesshomaru snorted. "You're pretty sure of yourself, little one."

"Of course I am," Inuyasha said with a mischievous smile. "No demoness in her

right mind would put up with you."

"Why you ungrateful little pup." Sesshomaru began to tickle the little boy. The elder

demon felt his heart soar when his otouto laughed. It was a sound of innocence which

made Sesshomaru very happy.

"Brother sing our song. Please." Inuyasha rested his head against his brother's


Sesshomaru sighed and began rocking with his brother held tightly in his


Dancing bears

painted wings

Things I almost remember

And a song someone sings

Once upon a December

Someone holds me safe and warm

Horses prance through a silver storm

Figures dancing gracefully

Across my memory

Far away, long ago

Glowing dim as an ember

Things my heart

Used to know

Once upon a December

Someone holds me safe and warm

Horses prance through a silver storm

Figures dancing gracefully

Across my memory

Far away, long ago

Glowing dim as an ember

Things my heart

Used to know

Things it yearns to remember

And a song

Someone sings

Once upon a December

Little Inuyasha snuggled closely to his brother as

he let his favorite song wash over him. "I like that


"I like it also. My mother use to sing it to me every night

before I went to bed. She told me that the song was an

old song sung by her mother, her mother's mother and so


"Is there a story behind that song?"

"Yes, it is said a long time ago someone had kidnapped

a princess from my mother's clan and that my great great

grandmother would often be heard singing this song,"

said Sesshomaru.


"Because she use to sing this song to the little princess

and she only wished for her beloved granddaughter to

come home."

"And did the princess every come home?" Inuyasha asked

raising his head to stare at his brother with shining eyes.

"Yes she did," said the elder demon kissing the small cheek of

his brother. "And they lived happily ever after. Now, it's time for

you to go."

"Aaaawwwww!" pouted the pup. "I want you to come out and play with me. You

have been in this room all day. You need a break."

"No, I need to continue my studies." Sesshomaru leaned close to Inuyasha

puppy dog-ear whispering. "Besides, if I am to take over from the old

gray dog. I will

need to be well educated."

"Oooohhhh, I'm gonna tell." Inuyasha said with wide eyes.

"No you won't because if you do. I will not give you the present I brought

for you."

The little hanyou's eyes widened in excitement. "Gimme!"

"No, not until you promise not to tell." Sesshomaru kissed the hanyou on the


"Okay, I promise I won't tell the old gray dog," said Inuyasha whose eyes were

still shining with excitement over the present his brother had for him.

"Close enough but don't call him an old gray dog in front of him, okay."

The little half demon nodded his head. So, Sesshomaru placed Inuyasha on the

floor and went into the other room. A few minutes later, he returned with his

hands behind his back. He knelt before his little brother placing a hand on his


"Now Inuyasha, if I give you this present you will have to leave me to my

studies," said Sesshomaru smiling. "Once I am finish. I will take you to the

village to play with your little friends. Will that be okay with you?"

"Oh yes, big brother that will be okay."

Sesshomaru brought his hand from behind his back and held a bright red ball

in his hand. Inuyasha squealed in delight as he grabbed the ball and began

throwing it up into the air.

"Now, go out to the garden and wait for me there."

"Okay." Inuyasha leaned forward and placed a kissed on his brother's

lips. He turned and hurries outside to play with his new ball.

Inuyasha was out in the garden playing with his ball when it rolled over to a

grove of cherry trees. The little hanyou sniffed the air and smelled another

demon. The scent was close.

"Hello little one," came a voice from the tree. Inuyasha looked up and saw a

young demon with long forest green hair and eyes to match sitting in the

tree. His eyes were narrow like those of a snake but they were quite friendly

looking. To Inuyasha innocent eyes, the demon's clothes seemed to be made

of spun gold. Unlike his red fire rat clothes the strange demon's clothes seem

to shimmer in the light. On his feet was a pair of black, soft

shoes the likes of which he has never seen before. The stranger's feet were

wrapped snuggly by the strange footwear.

"Hello," said Inuyasha looking up at the strange demon. "Who are you? Are

you a guest of my father?"

The demon seemed to think about that for a second before smiling pleasantly

at the hanyou. "Yes I am. My name is Yin."

"My name is Inuyasha."

"Yes, I know who you are," said Yin holding his pleasant smile.

Inuyasha frowned. What a strange accent. He definitely did not come from

around here. "Are you from the South? I have never seen clothing like that

before. And I have never heard that kind of accent before either."

"No, I'm not from around these parts. I am from a country across

the sea called China." The strange

demon jumped down from the tree and landed in front of Inuyasha. The hanyou

stared at the strange clothing. His hakama and haori was definitely foreign with

its tight collar and the strange things that held his haori together. He had no

obi tied

around his waist to keep, his haori closed. The cuffs of the sleeves were

folded back and

there were two slits on either side of the haori,

and it was long. The strange haori reached down to just

below his knees and in the center was an embroidery of a dragon. Looking

at the haori

and hakama, to Inuyasha, the material looked like scales. The cuffs at

the ankle of the strange

hakama were folded up. Yin knelt down before the little hanyou. He reached

into a golden

pouch that hung on his hip and pulled out a sucker.

Inuyasha eyes widened with glee as the ball slipped from his little fingers

and he took the offered candy. "I have plenty of different other kind of

candies. Have you ever tasted chocolates?"

Inuyasha shook his head staring at the demon in wonder.

"I think you would like it. Would you like some to give to your family?

and friends."

The small boy stared up at the smiling demon. "Well, I'm not sure if I should . . ."

said the little hanyou hesitantly. His eyes widen greedily as he stared at the

second sucker Yin took out of his pouch. "I guess it will be all right. You are,

after all, a guest of my father." The man handed the sucker to Inuyasha.

"Thank you." He bended down to pick up his ball.

"Well, nothing's too good for the great dog demon's youngest son." He put his arm

around Inuyasha's shoulders and lead him into the forest away from the safety of

his home.
