Well I'm back again with yet another tantalizing tale of love between the pure hearted miko of the future and the apathetic, pitiless taiyoukai of the west.

I'm so sorry this took so long to post but I only just got my internet hooked up like three days ago. I am now virus free, thank the Lord, and so my story will be updated regularly without the interference of any "Trojan Vundo" crap blocking my access to the flipping internet!!! 'pant' 'pant' 'pant'

Anyways, I hope you enjoy this story as much as my past pieces. Personally, this is my favorite narrative as of yet, and I'm almost certain you will all agree with me. I mean, 184 pages of "Microsoft Word" later I can only hope that you share my point of view.

But I suppose I should shut up and let you all read. So here it is… but not before the Disclaimer.

Disclaimer: I do not own Inuyasha or any characters affiliated with the series. There are, however, several characters in this story that are completely original and I claim full ownership of said characters, so hah!

Embracing Chaos

The mind:

…an enigma; a delicate balance between light and darkness. So fragile… so easily manipulated.

…in the beginning, it represents the budding of innocence. Yet, as time progresses, it withers, becomes less pure, less beautiful.

…dead; how most minds end up. Numb, ignorant of the innocence they once portrayed, leaving behind greed, jealousy… hatred. A cesspool of wicked, vile, and tainted notions; the very definition of corrupt.

So very few remain pure. Even fewer learn the balance that is required to live on properly. Whether one is consumed by darkness or shrinks from it, neither is truly complete. Only when the mind accepts both order and chaos can it truly be whole. Only when the mind realizes that both are required… will it know true power.

Short and sweet and rather intriguing, if I do say so myself. However, this is only an Prologue of sorts, so the real story has yet to begin. Stay tuned for the heart stopping, tear jerking ordeals of a miko and her trials in life… oh good Lord that was corny. Ahahaha…

'Ahem', please review.
