Summary - This story is totally separate from my others. Taking place in Feudal Japan after the fall of Naraku. Rated M for violence, rape, language. Overall dark story. Pairings: InuKag, InuKik, MirSan, SessKag, KouKag, SessKagura. Thanks to an accidental wish, Kagome is stuck in the Feudal Era. Her arguments with Inuyasha bring about other, events she never expected. Perhaps she shouldn't have gotten so angry at her hanyou.
Be Careful What You Wish For
The sun shone down on the little feudal village. Villagers were busy working in their fields on this hot summer day. An elderly woman, a miko, was weeding her herb garden. Down by the stream, four young people, a child and a small cat sat on a blanket, eating and chatting, enjoying the cool breezes that blew across the mountain spring fed stream, giving a refreshing break to the humid air.
The four young people were the monk, Miroku, his new bride, the demon slayer Sango, the hanyou Inuyasha and the young, time-traveling priestess Kagome. The child was the little fox kit, Shippou and the cat was Kirara. Miroku was glad for the mid-day break after a back breaking morning of tending to his new fields. The monk and his bride had chosen to stay in their adopted village after their wedding, a decision that their friends were thankful for.
The afternoon passed lazily as the friends relaxed. With the defeat of their arch enemy, Naraku, they no longer needed to travel in search of their foe. The source of all their previous exploits, the Shikon no Tama, was now complete and hung around the neck of Kagome. Demons and humans still tried to steal the jewel for its legendary powers, leaving the hapless hanyou to continue to battle to protect it and its purifier. Not that he minded, since he had spent all his life fighting, these battles were just a way of life. And besides, to him the demons that attacked were mere small fry and barely worth his energy.
It would be easy to get rid of the jewel and all the problems it brought, by simply making a wish on it. The thing is, no one really wanted anything the jewel could offer. Even the half-demon had given up his desire to become a full-fledged demon long ago.
Miroku, Sango and Shippou continually encouraged Inuyasha to show his feelings for Kagome, the three friends knowing he cared for her deeply. Kagome had given up on ever hearing words of endearment from him, instead letting his jealousy and undying protection of her, speak for him. He was never far from her side and she was never far from his. This was good enough for her. At least for now. She knew he was still torn between his feelings for her and his feelings for the undead miko that walked in the land of the living. His life had been one of misery and she didn't want to add to that by forcing him to choose. She had decided a while back that, since she walked with him every day and the undead miko saw him rarely, she would no longer complain when Inuyasha visited Kikyou.
A few days later, Kagome was studying in the hut of the elderly miko, Kaede. She had a couple of tests coming up and she needed to cram to pass. Her mind was also on how she was going to get Inuyasha to let her go to her world for a few days so she could take her exams. She had to take them to pass this semester.
Inuyasha walked in from outside and plopped himself down crosslegged near her,
"Kagome ... can you boil some water and make me some ninja food. I'm starved."
Shippou bounced onto Inuyasha's shoulder and said,
"That sounds good Kagome. Please?"
This was her chance. "Sure, Inuyasha. I'll be glad to.", she said sweetly which caused the hanyou to get a suspicious look in his eyes,
"Ok, what's up?"
"Whatsoever do you mean?"
"You're acting too nice. What do you want?"
"To go home for a few days."
"Not more of those tests things."
"Yes. Four of them. Please?", she whined softly.
"No. Kagome, you don't need that crap here.", he said.
"Inuyasha, I need it back in my time."
"If I had my way, you wouldn't go back to your time. You'd stay here."
"Inuyasha! My family is there. I can't live here full time."
"Why not, Kagome?", Shippou piped up.
Kagome didn't really have an answer to Shippou's question, so she tried to ignore it,
"Please Inuyasha. I'll be back in 4 days. And if I'm not, you can come get me."
"I don't have much choice, do I? Fine. Whatever.", he said as he crossed his arms.
The next day, Kagome packed up to leave. Getting ready to go, she said goodbye to her friends. She didn't see Inuyasha, so she figured he was moping in a tree somewhere. If she guessed right, he'd make himself known as she headed to the well. Sure enough, as she walked to the well, Inuyasha landed softly beside her from somewhere.
"I've changed my mind. I don't want you to go.", he said brusquely.
"WHAT? Inuyasha, you can't do that to me. I have to go."
An argument ensued between them that seemed to end when Kagome ordered Inuyasha to sit, sending him crashing to the ground. As he heard her utter the word, however, he reached out and grabbed the chain that held the Shikon no Tama around her neck. Kagome was shocked at the action and before she recovered, Inuyasha commented,
"I'll hold onto the jewel so you don't get in trouble over there."
Kagome started to reach down and grab the jewel, but the spell wore off and Inuyasha was up and holding tightly to the jewel. yelling ay each other again, Kagome was ready to sit Inuyasha one more time when he yelled at her,
"Dammit Kagome, I wish that damn well would just close up forever."
Kagome started to yell something back to him when she stopped and stared. Did he just say what she thought he said? Her answer came as the jewel in his hand began glowing brighter,
"Inuyasha, you didn't just say 'I wish' did you?", she asked incredulously, even though she knew the answer as the jewel disappeared.
