BUT ANYWAY,I CONTINUE TO WRITE BECAUSE I WILL FINISH THIS STORY WHETHER OR NOT ANYONE CARES ABOUT IT! Sniff, sniff……….
BUT ANYWAY! IT IS CHAPPIE 6!!!! WITH SOMEWHAT MORE FLUFF AND EVEN A LITTLE BIT OF ACTION!!! O..o
SO, WITH MUCH ADO, CHAPTER 6 OF MINE TO PROTECT!!!!!!
OH, BUT BEFORE WE START I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A NOTICE REGUARDING MY WRITING STYLE. I HAVE REVIEWS SAYING THAT I SHOULD NOT HAVE SO MANY INTERNAL CONVERSATIONS BETWEEN CHARACTERS (EX: INUYASHA AND HIS INNER DEMON.) FIREST OF ALL I WOULD FURTHER GO ON TO SAY THAT YOUR FEED BACK IS GREATLY APPRECIATED AND TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION. HOWEVER. CHARATERS LIKE INUYASHA AND KATSURO HAVE INNER DEMONS INSIDE THEM SO THOSE CONVERSATIONS ARE VITAL TO THE PLOT OF THE STORY! BUT I WILL TRY TO CUT DOWN ON IT!!!!
OK!!! NOW! CHAPTER 6!
DISCLAMER: IF I OWNED INUYASHA, HIS RED HAORI TOP WOULD NOT LOOK LIKE GRANNY TITS HANGIN OFF OF HIS CHEST.
"WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?"
"Holy shit! Get tha fuck away from him! He's possessed!!!"
Those were a sample of the shrieks and cries from "evil" henchmen who came to steal the Higurashi's greatest treasure. Judging by the horrific sounds, they failed horribly.
Three dead bodies fell limp in front of their demonic maker. The killer merely stepped over their bodies and rushed over to see if the treasure was unharmed.
He briskly appeared at Kagome's side already ready to catch the young miko in training as she fell to the floor in exhaustion.
"Kagome, Kagome, are you unharmed?"
"The young girl named as Kagome looked up into the steely amber eyes of her long time rescuer. She gave a small but cheerful smile. "Hai! Inu- nii chan! Thanks to you!"
The figure known as Inuyasha nodded in response. Outside, he kept a calm composure as he helped Kagome to her feet, but inside he felt relieved that she was alright. One her father would kill him if ANYTHING happened to her, but deep inside of him, he would have gone crazy if a single scar would blemish her skin.
"Inu-nii chan! I'm gonna be late! Hurry HURRY!!!!"
Shocked out of his thoughts, Inuyasha remembered that Kagome had miko training with lady Kaede today.
As he mentally scolded himself for not killing off those goons sooner, he and Kagome sped off to the gardens. 'oh, shit. Those guys can't stay there. Oh well ill deal with that later." and didn't give the intruders a second thought.
"GODDAMNIT! AND JUST WHAT THE HELL AM I HERE FOR AGAIN? FUCKIN ETIQUETTE LESSONS?"
Two extremely agitated demons were seated at a very intricate dining room table in an immensely cold castle. However, the causes for each demon's agitation were worlds different. The younger demon sat on the left end of the table seething with his arms tightly folded across his developing muscular chest. Anger and irritation burned in his eyes as he glared dangerously at the elder Artic wolf demon at the other end of the massive table. Just as infuriated as his hot-headed son, he too, glared straight back into his son's identical eyes.
"Katsuro. Cease this childish display of behavior. Now. This is a disgrace to see my son acting so…so…."
With a look of disgust, the Taiyoukai witnessed his son silently mocking everything he was saying. He bellowed loudly in outrage! He rose to his feet and slammed his clawed hands on the table shaking everything from his end to his infuriating son.
"HOW DARE YOU! LISTEN HERE PUP. Just because you are the age of 95, DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO DISRESPECT THE ALPHA MALE! NOW SIT DOWN!!! AND OBEY ME." The formidable Taiyoukai roared with a bellowing voice that barely stirred Katsuro.
Katsuro reluctantly obliged to behave and continue the 'idiotic' lessons. He remembered that when provoked, his father was ten times as vicious as anything Katsuro could try to achieve. It was better to cooperate in his demanding presence.
The demon king relaxed considerably in seeing his son calm down and planned to further discipline him further after the lesson.
"Now. Lets begin. Katsuro. The situation is that you are sitting in a meeting with a weaker demonic country. Your objective is to gain all their territories without needless war. Now. As if you were sitting at a high political meeting, what would you propose happen?
Katsuro scoffed and gave this as his answer. :Hell, that's easy! If you don't want to see your pathetic people all slaughtered, murdered and sacrificed by my hands because you were too ignorant to obey my word, I suggest you sign the documents. Now." katsuro sat back and smirked. He wad thoroughly pleased with his answer. His father on the other hand would have face vaulted if he were not so regal.
"No, no NO! that's unacceptable. Threats are not the first way to claim lands! Demons or no Demons!"
"Father, havent you said yourself that if you are truly all powerful that you conquer before someone conqures you? I prefer threats. Everyone's alive if they obey….well most of them anyway, and if they refuse, I get to led a war. So either way, more killing for me," Katsuro replied in a rather nonchalant way.
His father retorted, "Well, maybe you would have seen my words in action sometimes if you would accompany me on my meetings and affairs. A true king cannot be cowardly and hide in his castle just because of a trivial thing as climate. The day I see you leave the ice dynasty, is the day you can make as many orders as you see fit.
Katsuro replied with a low growl 'how dare he use that against me….'
His father stood up for what seemed the hundredth time that night. He shot Katsuro a calculating look as he began to say
"Remember, Katsuro, you may have the strength, and power, but real kings are measured by the amount of the wisdom they possess. And the way I see you now, You are nowhere near a sliver of regal responsibility. Until you show me that you can be a responsible ruler capable of leading nation, I refuse to aid you further. Including the prophecy." at that last sentence Katsuro's eyes widened. He leapt out of his seat in indignation and whipped the table from the path that separated him from his demanding father.
"WHAT! DON'T FUCK WITH ME! YOU NEED TO CUT THISBULLSHIT OUT!"
For Katsuro, this was not an unfamiliar situation. There have been many times he has challenged his father about the prophecy, with him sputtering out empty threats and mean less vows of death. However, never did his father go far as to deny him the privilege of receiving the fate of the prophecy. It did contain his destiny after all….
So feeling wholly threatened by his father's words he crossed the cavernous dining hall to confront his father face to face. Katsuro's eyes burned with rage as they bore down into his father's own. But to Katsuro's disadvantage. They possessed a cold, empty glare. As if unmoved by the entire scenario.
Suddenly an ear shattering scream of pain resounded from Katsuro's mouth as he sank to the floor with gashes in his abdomen, and a deep scar across his left eye. He clutched his bleeding wounds with his free hand, for his right hand was impaled by his father's brute force. It lay limp at his side. Katsuro slowly looked up to face his father in the face. His livid gaze did not meet the cold eyes from before nor the manipulative, cunning sparkle of evil they usually possessed. They were lit up with a more maniac like glee with a hint of satisfaction.
His large, Clawed hand sharply reached for Katsuro's neck and dragged him up to his level resulting in a loud "ARRGH!" from Katsuro. Above Katsuro's grunting and struggling his father's voice reverberated low allowing for it to echo eerily inside the hall.
"Katsuro. What a disobedient son you are. Do you not realise my generosity? I as your father take great care in your rise to power and sucession of the Demonic empire.Yet…." His grip latched onto Katsuro's neck
"You disobey me. You deliberately go against my wishes. Why do you insist on being incompliant?" His Hand contracted and twisted around his struggling son's neck. With every intention of suffocating him.
"Why Katsuro? ANSWER ME!!!!"
Within a fraction of a second he had leapt across the room and slammed the agonized demon adolescent into the frigid marble wall.
"Disobey me once again and I'll Kill you. And I think you know me well enough that I'm not joking about this……I can rule another 1000 years if I so desire. Remember that."
With a smirk he hurled the mangled body of his youkai son back across the room and right into the middle of the grand glass table causing it to shatter under his weight.
"So son…Do you wish to challenge me again?"
Katsuro did not rise.
"Good pup. I don't think you'll disobey again…."
The Great demon lord swiftly vacated the hall, leaving a bloody and defeated youkai prince among various shards of glass.
Katsuro's pain was like nothing he had ever experienced. Wincing he began the tedious process of pulling out the pieces of glass from his wounds. His mind began to wander from him as he started to sit up and stand.
'Goddamnit! WHY IS HE SO STRONG? All this time….all that training….'
Katsuro looked around, now clutching his left eye to cease the bleeding. Around him blood lay scattered among the shattered glass. If The demon heir had been in a different circumstance, he would have thought the sight beautiful.
But this case was different as the blood was his own and not some unfortunate servant who has been selected to fight him.
Katsuro looked at his fractured wrist and frowned deeply. Even with his demonic powers this would take days to heal. Which meant a certain period of time for it to heal. Which meant bed rest. Which meant no traning. Which meant no killing. Katsuro was deeply disliking the turn of events that were about to unfold.
As Katsuro moved to stand, the loose pieces of glass on his frail body fell off, clinking to the rest of the debris. His muscles ached and his blood would not cease flowing from out of his wounds.
"ARRRRRRGGGGHHHHH," The pain seared throught his body as he stood erect and proud. Everything but his pride was maimed in his encounter with his father.
'My…father..' if it were possible, Katsuro's face would have grown into what could have been the epitome of rage. Here was one man he had grown to loathe.
Katsuro Uttered one single pained word every step he tried to take towards the entrance.
"Hold still Inu-Nii chan! I cant get the splinter out with you squirming!"
Lady Kaede chuckled wholeheartedly at the predicament before her.
There in the dojo Doorway, sat little kagome and Young Inuyasha in a dilemma. Kagome was trying her very best to remove a splinter from Inuyasha's palm with a pair of tweezers, but only resulted in pricking the skin around it resulting from "OW!s" and "HEY! WATCH IT'S!" From the Hanyou Boy.
The whole incident was kagome's Fault actually….It had began in kagome's Miko lessons where Kagome was learning to control the capacity and speed of her spritual energy. She had began splendidly, raising her arms out and reciting the proper incantation to initiate the exercise. Inuyasha and Lady Kaede alike watched amazed as kagome's light blue aura engulfed her and began to swirl in uniform gusts of wind around her small form. However, something must have broken her concentration as all of the sudden, the wind went haywire and before Lady kaede could contain it, the increasing force ripped up a large amount of wood from the floor and sent wooden planks flying everywhere. Kagome And Kaede being Mikos activated shields to protect themselves, but Inuyasha's Defense was limited to his razor sharp claws. As he quickly crashed down his hands into the wood to destroy it, the numerous splinters embedded inside his palm causing immense shocks of pain.
And it was this reason why Kagome now had to remove the splinters from the unfortunate hanyou's hand.
"Gomen…nasai..Inu no ni chan," Kagome said Quietly.
Inuyasha rolled his eyes and tried to smirk but ceased as the splinters were being removed, one by one.
"It's..okay…" inuyasha managed to say as he winced.
Kagome began to grin. "Thanks, im glad you're nor angry! YA! ALL DONE!!!"
Inuyasha began to take back his hand but froze as a new calming feeling began to wash over him. It was pleasant..he couldn't describe the feeling. He looked at kagome and observed that she was glowing pink.
'Pink? That's really odd..'
Inuyasha stared at his hand and back at kagome a confused look marred his face. Then as he witnessed kagome moving her own hand around inuyasha's.
'Ah. It makes sense now. She's doing that…with her..
"Does it feel better Inu no nii chan?"
"Uh..Hai….how are you…"
Kagome giggled. "Its something that I made up! It has two purposes!"
Kaede looked over with a fleeting look of shock. and quiet chuckling receded immediately as she slowly walked backwards behind a screen to observe the two in secret..
"Yup! I call it Calming Rhapsody! First, if someone's in pain, it can relieve the pain symptoms! And also if someone's stressed or their soul is distraught….distraught is a new word that Lady Kaede called me….then with this, the distressed soul can be calmed back to their original disposition. Disposition's a word that daddy taught me!!! So how does it feel ? Better?
Inuyasha silently agreed. His hand felt as good as new. He observed it underneath the pink glow that encased it and could see that no splinter marks were visible at all.
"Hai…Ne, Kagome, how did you do that? Are you sure that Kaede didn't teach you that?
Kagome looked up with wide eyes. "N..NO! I made it up myself!!! I promise! I wouldn't lie to you!!!" she exclaimed. Little Kagome was a lot of things. But she was no liar.
Inuyasha held up his other hand in order to placate her. "Ok kagome. I believe you. No need to get all upset. Inuyasha now stood up and offered his hand to Kagome to help her up. She accepted and Inuyasha helped her to her feet. The two began to head for the old bridge that would take them towards the Mansion. Along the way, The children's small talk was carried throughout the air, which did not make it difficult for Lady kaede to hear their conversations. She smiled upon seeing the retreating backs of the young couple.
She chuckled again while her musings became verbal.
"Ah those two. Even with my receding powers I can feel it. Their bond is already tightly reinforced. It's at times like these I begin to doubt the words of the prophecy. "
Lady kaede slowly went around and closed the large sliding doors on each side. After she did so, she removed the front mat from the main outer entrance and placed it inside. Slipping on her sandals, the aged priestess closed and locked the door.
The 'slip slip' sound of her sandals hitting the dusted pathway to the bridge resounded throughout the forest. Ahead, the voices of Inuyasha and Kagome almost were out of range.
All the way back Kaede's thought's dwindled on one thing. "I must request a meeting with lord Higurashi."
"There can't be another soul who is worthy of receiving the Shikon's power. That hanyou has to be the only one. Her heart couldn't possibly open for another….
And soon, not even Kaede's footsteps could be heard on the lands of the now deserted Dojo.
"Do come in Lady Kaede."
"Thank You Milord."
"Please have a seat. Now. What is it that is so important that you have summoned a midnight meeting?"
"Milord, It appears that the prophecy is already starting to fulfill itself."
"I'm afraid so. The first sign of the aura is showing itself. Today. During Lady Kagome's Training."
"I better sit down for this…."
"Lord Higurashi, I'm sure that you knew this, but ever since Kagome started her training a year ago, she has made striking advancements in her practice. Within 3 months she was already beginning to feel the different spirits in the invisible aura. Milord, I did not feel the spirits until I was fifteen milord."
"And today, I have learned that she is able to create her own spells."
"She…She is able to do WHAT?"
"Create. Her. Own. Spells. Today she began to heal Lord Inuyasha's hand with what would appear to be a normal healing aura, but…I sensed that that aura has the potential….to be molded into any purpose the possessor wishes."
"milady, you cant. Possibly mean…"
"Yes. I'm afraid so. She has been given the divine right to contain. Midoriko's infinite will."
"No…not my Kagome…"
"Milord. You do realize what this means…"
"Yes. We must at all costs make the alternate destiny of the prophecy come true. We MUST DO EVERYTHING WE CAN!"
"I agree. However, it will be difficult."
"Yes. Under no circumstances is Kituomaru to find out!!!"
"That is the difficulty. That demon is one to be feared. Recently he is the demon who now surpassed the great Inu Youkai race…it is hard to hide anything from one who holds so much power at his hands."
"And his son…."
"Yes. From what I have also learned, his offspring, the demon prince of all demon royalty, is being raised to be his successor. And is rumored to have ten times the strength of Kituomaru in his prime."
" That demon….he sends the chills through me…..like ice."
"As to be expected from the Ruler of the north."
"My daughter….Kaede…we have to do something…"
"Milord…there is nothing we can do."
"NO! there is always something! I WILL NOT HAND MY DAUGHTER TO…"
"MILORD! It breaks my heart to say this to you, but my power is but nothing to stop the great Kituomaru."
"Which is why we cannot fail to find the other…"
"This I also know."
"Because when he comes…"
"Inuyasha alone, will not be enough to keep your little girl safe."
"I…I…..My baby girl……"
"I take my leave. And while my power is not enough to keep the arctic away, I will do all I can to find the one. Good night, milord."
Lord Higurashi did not reply.
I know…I know….lame, but the next chappie's gonna be a HUGE JUMP!!!!! I just want Katsuro and Kagome to meet!!!!!!!
So, I really don't know who to put kagome with!!! Katsuro or inuyasha? I know noone even knows what katsuro looks like, but im saving his description for a special time.
So, Im planning some MAJOR inu&kag fluff!!! YAY! Until…..it's time…..
