'Thank god' he thinks.

Enjoy reading everyone! I love my reviewers so keep them coming! oh and I also don't own the song 'turn back time'
Chapter 1: Turn back time
If I could turn back time
If I could find a way..
I'd take back those words that hurt you
And You'd stay
Inuyasha frowned as he sat staring at the fire with a dejected look on his face. Leave it to Kagome of all people to go off and betray him like she did. It's not as if Inuyasha could've stopped her anyway and all because of that bloody brother of his. Sesshomaru…Inuyasha didn't really feel like being ripped to pieces or dying anytime soon. He knew, yes he did, even though he'd never admit it out loud that Sesshomaru would and could shred him to pieces. What with all his, 'touch what was his and you'll find yourself a one-way ticket to hell…' His brother always had the best of everything…but maybe this time…just maybe… it was Inuyasha's own fault that Kagome was gone.
My world was shattered I was torn apart
Like someone took a knife and drove it deep in my heart
You walked out that door I swore that I didn't care
But I lost everything darling then and there
Too strong to tell you I was sorry
Too proud to tell you I was wrong
I know that I was blind, and ooh...
Still…the audacity of him! Inuyasha saw her first and why should it be him that should always suffer? It wasn't his fault that Kikyo came first! After all, tell him which man could let go of his first love like that?! and especially the fact that Kagome looked like Kikyo! GAH! Women were like…. Like…man-killers!
I don't know why I did the things I did
I don't know why I said the things I said
Pride's like a knife it can cut deep inside
Words are like weapons they wound sometimes.
And if that wasn't enough…Inuyasha missed her Missed her…It was killing him and she'd only been gone a couple of weeks now and why? Why and how did women hold such power over men like that? He didn't want to miss her! Inuyasha sighed and banged his head against a tree. What a softie he'd become…Now where was that Hentai monk, the slayer and the fox-kit? He needed to take his anger out on someone.
'So Miroku can pound you into the ground with his staff?' his conscious asked him.
No. He sighed and gritted his teeth staring at the sky. He'd so welcome one of Kagome's 'sits' right about now….
If I could reach the stars
I'd give them all to you
Then you'd love me, love me
Like you used to do
-Balcony- (western palace)
Sesshomaru was gone with some other lords to check up on problems and disputes that were occurring on the western borders. 'Probably some other lesser demon wreaking havoc…' Kagome thought. Something was irking her, bothering her a great deal and it wasn't because she felt the presence of jewel shards. Why was she feeling so jumpy today? Arms wrapped around her tiny waist pulling her closer to him and she turned to see her mate Sesshomaru. Dear god, that demon was going to be the death of her one day.
"Are you trying to kill me?" she said.
He gave her one of his sexy smirks and whispered in her ear. "I think you missed me…" and she flushed red. Grrr….damn that man knew her too well… "So tell this Sesshomaru what's bothering you?"
"Naraku." She said leaning into his touch and she felt him stiffen suddenly and unknowingly hugging her tighter. So…his mate was worried about that half-hanyou bastard.
"What about him?" he asked her.
"Inuyasha can't capture the shards without me and you won't let me see Inuyasha anymore….and Naraku? If he found out that I am no longer part of the Inu-tachi group… he could now go and kill Inuyasha and the rest." She saw the look in his eyes and continued. "I left the shards with Sango. Inuyasha made it clear remember? He made it clear that Kikyo could purify them on her own and I was not needed, once again…" She sighed and looked out at the horizon. Sesshomaru didn't say anything as he thought about what could be done. That jewel would continuously worry his mate until it was gone even though she knew she didn't break it….
'I was trying to get the jewel out of the bird because it swallowed it. Inuyasha was taunting me and said that I could never do it because only Kikyo could do it! I hit it with it's own foot and it was a direct hit but the jewel broke too…'
'Inuyasha made it clear that it was my fault and that Kikyo would never had done something so stupid!'
'He yelled at me in the end and said, 'WHAT DID YOU SAY!?'
That damn dead Miko. Hurting his mate's feelings like that. That was unacceptable. She would die as soon as he got his hands on her. A good thing that he didn't let his Kagome see Inuyasha though. He was a demon, friend or not. He really didn't want to kill his half-brother who still had feelings for her and would no doubt challenge him for his mate. What a bother really. Although beating him to a bloody pulp until he begged for mercy was tempting. Inuyasha had always been a thorn at his side and he knew that Inuyasha felt the same way about him. So his mate wanted to return to her old life and go back to hunt for shards again?
'And what makes you think that Inuyasha will even try to make a play at Kagome when you're there with her?' his conscious said.
Inuyasha was a demon that's why and being his brother didn't help matters much…. And who's side was his conscious on anyway?
"Naraku worries you…" he said it as a statement rather than a question.
"No." she said sighing looking at the ground and pulling out of his arms. "No, he does not….what worries me is the mixed feelings that are bound to occur when and if I go to help."
'But the jewel was whole and gone now right?' He thought.
-Inuyasha's forest- (with Inuyasha)
Her voice. It was her voice that still made him cringe. Why didn't she hate him!? Why didn't she love him!?
Her voice so calm and clear as if she knew what she was talking about. She took off her necklace and then handed it to him saying, "Inuyasha, all you need for the jewel to be complete are Kouga's shards, Kohaku's and Kikyo's. When you complete the jewel make a wish Inuyasha… and Kikyo will live again. The other half of my soul will return to me and then the jewel will disappear forever. It will no longer be in the past, present nor in anyone's body."
The jewel was broken again and sometimes Inuyasha wondered whether it was Kagome's wounded heart that broke it again. Would she come and help again or would she turn her back on him, on the Inu-tachi and say that this time it wasn't her fault? Did she even know about it? Did she know that Kouga still pined for her? Was she mated to Sesshomaru? Was she too busy with palace life to even consider helping? Was she perhaps with child…. And at that thought Inuyasha's eyes flashed red turning back to their gold shade a second later. ACK! Too many questions were beginning to hurt his head. A thought came and went through Inuyasha's head but he dismissed it as nothing. Alas if he had only put more thought into it….
'And then the jewel will disappear forever. It will no longer be in the past, present nor in anyone's body.'
Where and how had the jewel reappeared from?
If I could reach the stars
I'd give them all to you.
Lady Nefertiti: Don't forget to read and review!
Inuyasha: (looking hopeful) "Possibly not a lot of Inuyasha bashing in this fic right?"
Lady Nefertiti: "I do not 'bash' you, so to speak, Inuyasha…I just think what you do to Kagome is unacceptable and mean. It is unwise to get on a woman's nerves…after all they are unpredictable…"
Inuyasha: (mumbling) "Tell me about it…"
Kouga: "I'm in this fic right?"
Ayame: "You started a fight with Inuyasha last fic and had to be knocked out by Miroku! What makes you think she wants you in this fic?"
Naraku: (walking onstage …a cup of coffee in his hand)
Inuyasha twitches as Miroku holds him back by the shirt so he doesn't run up to him and start a fight and Kagome's mouth ready to utter the word 'sit' if need be.
Lady Nefertiti: (feeling the tense silence) "Err…Right…well Naraku off the stage for now…you don't appear until later…and Inuyasha calm down…"
-Kagura saunters onstage-
Inuyasha: "What the hell is going on here?!"
Lady Nefertiti: "Happy Thanksgiving everyone!"
Inuyasha: "What is this Thaankkz-gi-viving?"
