Love Is a Lie Everyone Believes

Chapter 7

Finally, the three days were up. I was back at work and it felt great. 'Course some of the nurses didn't seem all too thrilled. I don't know why, I was the one who made their life easier. Other doctors had them working non-stop, even when they were supposed to take their break.

I walked up to the nurse's station that was on my floor to get my charts. "Morning, can I get the patient charts please." I asked, smiling at the obviously new nurse.

She looked up from some paper work and smiled briefly before grabbing a pile of charts and handing them to me. "Thank you."

After receiving the charts, I glanced through them quickly. As I flipped through the first two, the third caught my eye.

At first I thought I was seeing things, but then I looked closer and it turns out that what I was reading was in fact, really there. On my way to the room I began to contemplate why she would still be here. Her case was somewhat bad, but with the medicine we have today, she should be healed and out of the hospital.

I turned the corner and came upon the nurse who ran most of the rooms in the hall. "Excuse me, can you tell me why this patient has not been discharged yet? She should have been healed a long time ago."

"I'm not sure doctor." she said while covering her mouth with her hand. If I didn't know any better I would say she was trying to hide a smile. Shrugging my shoulders, I continued on my way to the room.

Closing the chart after reading it for the fourth time, I turned another corner and came upon Shiori's room. Still completely mystified as to why she was still here, I was not however, prepared for what lay beyond the door.

In all my life if there was ever a perfect time to faint it would have been now. "Well I heard pneumonia can do some damage, but for it to completely change a person like this is impossible."

The person lying on the hospital bed chuckled. "You would be amazed at the things that are possible in this world."

I laughed as well. "What are you doing here Sesshomaru?" I figured he wouldn't want anything to do with me. After all, his choice of words back at his office made it perfectly clear that I was the last person on this earth that he would want to be around.

"Truthfully, I don't know. Something inside me told me that no matter what happened I will never get you out of my head." he answered as he got up and walked over to me.

Taking my face in his hands, he pulled me to him and gave me a kiss that turned me into jell-o.

"Things may have gotten off on a bad start, but I am not letting you get away again." he said after he pulled away.

I, however, was still in a daze from the kiss, so being the genius I am all I could do to answer was nod my head.

Laughing that beautiful laugh, Sesshomaru guided me over to one of the visiting chairs and sat me down where I finally gained enough sense to talk.

"I'm glad you're here. I really am sorry." I said, all of a sudden feeling ashamed.

"It's quite alright Kagome, Shippo explained everything."

I laughed, "I figured Shippo was involved in this some how."

Nodding his head in a bemused fashion, Sesshomaru sat down beside me all the while holding my hand.

"I have a confession to make. From what I have seen and heard, you are a full-on believer that love does not exist. I, on the other hand, have come to believe it exists. It has taken me years, 530 to be exact, to see what love is. I want to be the man who shows you that love truly does exist."

He was so serious too. His eyes were blazing with emotions, emotions that for so long he refused to show. I could feel the love radiating from his body, and to think that, that love was for me made me so happy; more than he will ever know.

"I don't think that's possible, Sesshomaru." Immediately his face dropped but not long enough to confirm it for sure.

"I see." he said dryly as he let go of my hand. He rose from his seat and began to head for the door.

Before he could get too far I grabbed his hand. "It's not possible, because I have already found love." I reassured, and with that I grabbed his face and kissed him. I showed him just how much love has found me.

When we broke apart, it was his turn to feel light-headed and dazed. He looked kind of cute like that too.

Smiling a dazzling smile, he picked me up bridle style and flew from the room. Before I knew it we were in his car and speeding out of the parking lot. "Where are we going?" I asked, feeling all the happiness flowing through me.

He turned slightly to smile lovingly at me. "We, my love, are going home." I smiled back at him and took hold of his hand.

As we drove along the highway, I thought back to all the years I spent in the dark. Then on one glumly day, I come across the sun and in it's rays I found that love is a lie everyone believes, including me.

The End

End of Chapter 7

I am very sorry that this chapter is so short.

I tried everything I could to make it longer, but everything I wrote made the chapter dull and boring.

I hope you like this one and the story itself.

Please review and thank you for reading my story.
