Sesshoumaru traveled down the long hallway, towards the smell of food. He heard talking and a voice that he immediately recognized as Kagome's... and Sango's.

"I swear that monk makes me want to strangle the hell out of him!" Sango muttered, making Sesshoumaru smirk.

As soon as he walked through the door, the entire room was quiet. Both of the women's eyes were on him. They didn't move or speak. That was until he took a step towards Kagome. Sango moved to block him and Kagome got up quickly, being careful of her baby.

"Kagome-"

"Stop right there, Sesshoumaru!" Sango said, glaring at him. Sesshoumaru glanced down at the same woman in front of him before letting his eyes slide back to Kagome.

"Kagome. I need to speak with you." Kagome shook her head, her hands on her stomach.

"Go away, Sesshoumaru." Kagome said, her voice soft.

"Why are you here anyway?" Sango asked, poking his shoulder. He didn't even budge.

"I must speak to Kagome and you will not stop me, Sango." His eyes were on Kagome the entire time he spoke.

"What do you want, Sesshoumaru?" Kagome asked, her head up, her eyes boring into his. Sesshoumaru took a step towards her, noticing her flinch when he tried to reach out to her. This upsetted him.

"Kagome..." he sighed. He shook his head. He would not allow this to discourage him.

"I came here to tell you that..." he stopped. "I came to tell you... that..." When he began again, Kagome's eyes seemed to silently encourage him to continue.

"Forget this." he growled and snatched her to him, careful as to not harm the baby. His lips were on hers, gentle and soft.

"I love you, Kagome. I love you dearly. I understand that it took me too damn long to realize it... say it, show it... but I do...I..." his confession trailed off when her finger pressed against his lips.

"I love you, Sesshoumaru. Yes. You are an idiot for not realizing what I wanted, or saying it, or showing it, but I do still love you. It would take me years to move on without you. Especially my being pregnant with your child. It would be too much, knowing that I will still have a part of you with me, but not really having iyou/i with me." Kagome's voice was soft and loving, making Sesshoumaru even happier.

"Kagome," Sesshoumaru began. "I really do love you. I always have loved you, even if I haven't said it or showed it."

"But, Kir-"

"Forget Kira!" he growled, staring fiercly into her eyes. "Forget Kira, Kagome." he said a little softer. "Only you. I want only you. Not Kira. Not her. Not ever. Just you. I love you, Kagome Taisho." he paused. "I'd do anything for you. I love you. I love you and our pup. Our pup who I'm planning to be here for. My pup and my mate." he whispered, placing a soft kiss on her lips.

Tears fell from Kagome's eyes listening to her ex husband's confession. Sesshoumaru was not sure if the tears were from happiness or sadness. He soon found out as her arms slipped from his hold and wrapped themselves around his neck, her lips on his.

"Oh, Sesshoumaru. I love you so much." Kagome whispered into his ear. Sesshoumaru smiled, kissing her lips again.

Sango watched the entire thing happen with a satisfied smile on her face. About time that damn man learned something. It took his a long ass time to realize it and admit it, but it happened.. and now...

"They can both be happy." she whispered to herself, neither couple hearing it.


Sesshoumaru didn't take any time in apologizing to Kagome the right way and ensuring her that he would always be there for her. Kagome was very surprised in how quickly he moved. When she needed something, he was there. Sango and Miroku wasn't needed anymore. Kagome never had the chance to call on them. Sesshoumaru was always there. He took her out to dinner at her favorite restaurant, bought her and the pup clothes, helped pick the colors and paint the room for their pup.

Sesshoumaru pampered her and spoiled her in the best ways possible. He had purposely made it so she would not want for anything. Her or his pup. Anything that she wanted or needed, he got it for her. If Kagome and his pup was happy, he was happy. Watching Kagome smile even more every day, brightened his day. It had surprised him that soon after his pampering, Kagome had seemed to forgive him... though she continued to talk about how disgustingly rank Kira had looked that day at the mall... and how funny it was when she ran away... and how Kira's face would have been if Kagome had her way.

Sesshoumaru could only shake his head at his mate and smile, brushing his fingers lovingly across his mark on her neck. He smirked to himself as he watched his mate sleep.

"I had told my father you would be my mate." he whispered and leaned down and kissed her lips. "I love you."


"Push, Kagome."

"I can't."

"You have to."

"I can't."

"Please, Kagome."

"I've tried! I ca-"

"Push, Kagome. Now."


"I should rip your pe-"

"Shh... you're tired. Go to sleep." he whispered, kissing both foreheads. Kagome threw him one more weak glare before silently falling asleep, their child falling along to sleep behind her.

Sesshoumaru watched both of his girls sleep with a smile on his face. Pulling his chair up closer to the bed, he caressed his daughter's cheek with a single finger.

"I love you," he whispered. His eyes drifted up to look at his wife. He smiled more when he saw the mark on her neck.

"And I love you, mate." he whispered. A smile flitted across his mate's lips at the declaration. Sesshoumaru kissed her lips softly.

"And everyday, I will continue show you both how much this Sesshoumaru loves you."
