Oh and one more thing there will be no continuation. I repeat no more continuation of this fic ever ever ever! That is all folks.
"Kagome you need to get it together." Yuka sighed. "Your test is next week and all your answers have been wrong."
"I know." She huffed. "I just have a lot on my mind right now and my test isn't one of them."
Yuka closed the book and stared at her friend. "Alright Kagome give; what is on your mind?" She grinned knowingly. "Is it that hot sexy elder brother of Inuyasha's that brought you to school this morning?"
"No." She shook her head.
"Are you sure?" She questioned suspiciously. "I can see that man casing all kinds of problems for you." She leered.
Kagome cringed at that. "Eww no."
"What do you mean eww?" She questioned wide eyed. "That man is HOT!"
"To you maybe." She smiled as a vision of Toga passed her mind's eye. "I have someone else on my mind."
"Who? Who could you possibly have on your mind that's hotter than Inuyasha's brother?"
"His father." She answered dreamily.
"Just kidding." She quickly back tracked when she realized what she had said.
Yuka eyed her friend critically. "Liar." She accused as she stared at her.
"Oh come on like I'm really dating Inuyasha's dad." She giggled dramatically hoping her friend didn't see through her.
"I don't know." She eyed her trying to see if she was lying or not. "Why would you say that if it wasn't true?"
"For the shock value?"
"LIAR!" She pointed a finger at her. "You are dating his dad; aren't you!"
"Of course not." She shook her head vigorously.
"Yea right." She narrowed her eyes on her. "I'll get the truth out of you yet."
Kagome grabbed her things and stood up. "Well good luck with that." She turned and left the library.
Thinking about Toga depressed her and each day that passed and he didn't come home depressed her even more. It had been a month since her return from the past and still nothing.
As she exited the school with Yuka next to her asking question after question about her love life she spotted Sesshoumaru's car out front. "What's he doing here?" She questioned out loud cutting off her friend's incessant questioning.
"To pick you up obviously." Yuka pointed out. "It only makes sense since he's picked you up everyday for the last month."
"But he said he couldn't pick me up today cause he had a late meeting."
"Maybe it was cancelled." Yuka shrugged.
"Maybe." She agreed and began walking down the steps of the school only to suddenly stop at the bottom with her breath caught in her throat.
"What?" Yuka questioned.
Kagome didn't answer just watched wide eyed as a silver haired male got out of the car, walked around it, and stared at her and it wasn't Sesshoumaru. "Toga!" She cried and took off running when the reality of the situation finally hit her.
Toga easily caught her when she jumped into his arms, wrapped her legs around his waist, and began placing kisses all over his face.
"You're home." She cried as happy tears rolled down her cheeks. "You finally came home."
"Hai." He grinned and hugged her tightly to his chest. "That damn well should be wiped from the face of the Earth." He grumbled.
Kagome pulled back and stared at him. "Why? What happened?"
Toga snorted and shook his head. "Naraku's magic caused the well to react and overload so to speak." He snorted again. "I had to wait for it to wear off before I could come home."
"That's it?" She cringed.
"That's it." He grunted with a shrug. "I've just been hiding out in my cave for the last month."
"Oh?" He stared wide eyed at her. "What do you mean; oh?"
"Well I thought you were locked in a deadly battle with that Naraku guy or something."
"Hardly." He smirked. "After you went through the well the bastard ran away like the coward he is."
"Well that's boring." She cringed.
"What more do you want?" He stared at her slightly wide eyed.
"I don't know." She shook her head. "I thought maybe some great battle, destruction, death, blood." She nodded wide eyed at him.
"What an imagination you have." He snorted.
"I'm a writer." She grinned. "It's all about the imagination."
"Ah yes." He smirked. "My little book writer. Who I've heard just finished her latest book."
"I did." She beamed at him. "Sesshoumaru loved it." She leaned in and whispered. "Though he won't admit it."
"What man would." He chuckled. "Romance novels aren't exactly manly."
"I guess." She agreed.
"So Kagome is this the man you aren't dating?" Yuka suddenly questioned.
Kagome looked over her shoulder at her friend. "I'm not dating him." She turned and looked back at Toga who was scowling at her. "I'm engaged to him." She leaned in and placed a kiss on his lips.
"Speaking of which; I believe you and I need to have a little talk about you moving out of your house." He arched a silver brow at her as he set her on her feet before him.
"Yea I moved out; so what?
"Yes and Sesshoumaru told me all about how you went about moving out." He crossed his arms over his chest.
"It wasn't that bad." She huffed.
"I bet." He jerked his head towards the car. "Lets go home and you can tell me what has been going on since I've been gone. And perhaps you can give me a clearer answer as to where Inuyasha is."
"Bye Yuka I'll talk to you later." She took her dropped books from her friend's hands.
"Yes we will talk later." Yuka nodded curtly.
Kagome giggled and headed for the car. "I don't know where Inuyasha is." She looked over the top of the car at the inu. "I tried to get Sesshoumaru to tell me where he was but he wouldn't tell me."
Toga opened the door and got into the car with a snort. "All I got out of him was that Inuyasha was in a better place than at home."
Kagome closed her car door and shook her head. "He makes it sound like Inuyasha is dead and in the hereafter."
"It wouldn't surprise me if that was indeed what happened." He started the car and pulled it from the curb.
Kagome stared at him wide eyed. "You don't think he really killed Inuyasha; do you?"
"Doubtful." He answered as he reached over and placed his hand on her thigh. "However I'm sure where ever he sent my boy Inuyasha won't be able to come back until he fulfills whatever obligations Sesshoumaru set on him." He shook his head. "It's not the first time he's done this and I doubt it'll be the last time."
"So where did he send him all the other times he sent him away?"
He snorted. "Youkai boot camp."
She drew her brows deeply. "Youkai boot camp? What's that?"
"A place where wayward hanyou and youkai are sent to be reformed." He shook his head again. "This would make his fifth visit if that's where Sesshoumaru sent him; which is exactly where I believe he is."
"Huh; I wonder if they're getting sick of him being sent back all the time." She looked over at him. "I mean don't you think that they think his constant return visits are a reflection on their inability to reform him?"
"Possibly," he nodded. "but doubtful. They've dealt with Inuyasha enough to understand his stubborn disposition and how to deal with it. He'll return home changed but it won't last long until he's right back to his old self."
"Wow you'd think he'd get sick of being sent away and behave himself." She shook her head.
"He is who he is; he knows that and why should he change for anyone especially his elder brother."
"Good for him then." She grinned.
"Don't let Sesshoumaru hear you say that." He grinned back at her.
She held up a determined fist in front of her face. "I'm not scared of him."
"Don't let him hear you say that either." He smirked. "He might put the theory to the test."
"He wouldn't!" She stared wide eyed over at him.
"If you want to find out tell him."
She began shaking her head. "No, I'll pass, thanks." She laced her fingers with the ones resting on her thigh. "So when did you get home?"
He smirked knowing she wasn't going to like his answer. "Just before you left for school."
"WHAT?" She stared at him eyes wide and showing the first signs of fury. "And you didn't come tell me right then?"
"You wouldn't have gone to school if I had." He nodded over at her.
"Wait a minute," her eyes narrowed to thin little slits. "you were the issue Sesshoumaru was taking care of this morning that caused us to nearly be late." When he grinned evilly at her she knew she was right. "AND Sesshoumaru doesn't have a late meeting either." She nodded. "Though that would explain why you're driving his car; BUT STILL," she glared at him "I can't believe you were home this morning and didn't come see me!"
"Again you wouldn't have gone to school." He answered.
"I'm studying to test out so it wouldn't have mattered anyway." She glared at him.
"Even still," he nodded curtly at her. "you're still in school and until you test out going to your classes are high priority."
"Nor more so when the man I love has been missing for a month then finally comes home." She growled.
"Well you're seeing me now unless you'd rather I take you to your mother's and leave you there?"
"I'd purify you first." She nodded curtly at him when he glanced over at her.
"Then I suppose things didn't turn out so badly; now did it."
She sighed in defeat. "Yea; I guess they didn't." She smiled at him. "I'm just glad you're finally home."
"Me too." He smiled back and gave the hand holding his a gentle squeeze.
Kagome fidgeted nervously with the hem of her skirt. "I can't believe you want to do this now." She hissed at the male sitting next to her.
"We were going to have to do it eventually." He pointed out wisely. "Today seemed as good a day as any."
"Not on the day you come home after being gone for a month." She argued.
"You'll have decades and even centuries to have me to yourself," he countered. "an hour or two with your family to introduce me isn't going to kill you."
"No but it might kill them." She whispered when she heard her family walk in the front door. "We should have called to let them know we were coming."
"You said they would be here." He countered then stood up when her three family members entered the living room.
"Oh no." Kagome groaned and put her hand to her face in embarrassment when her grandfather threw the simple paper ofudas at Toga.
Toga leaned over to her. "Is he mad in the head?" He whispered.
"You might say that." She sighed. "I probably should have warned you; he did the same thing to Sesshoumaru."
"And yet he lives?" He questioned curiously not believing his son would allow such behavior against him.
"Not by Sesshoumaru's choice." She again sighed. "Grandpa stop that!" She ordered when he threw a third set of ofudas at him.
"He is a demon." The old man defended like she was too stupid to know this.
"I can't imagine why we don't get many visitors here." She huffed, plopped down on the couch, and folded her arms over her chest indignantly.
"Sota why don't you take you grandfather into the kitchen and give him some ice cream." His mother ordered.
"Ice cream." The old man beamed. "I haven't had ice cream in ages."
Sota grabbed him by the hand and began pulling him out of the living room. "I guess a day is ages when you're as old as him." He rolled his eyes at his mother as they walked out.
"So Kagome," her mother started. "is this him?"
"Yes." She nodded and waved a dismissive hand towards the inu. "Meet Toga, Sesshoumaru's and Inuyasha's daddy."
"It's a pleasure." He gave a small polite bow.
"Likewise," she nodded and sat down causing him to follow suit. "you're much younger looking than I expected."
"MOM!" Kagome gasped.
"Well honey what did you expect? You said he was almost two-thousand years old."
"I'm hurt." Toga looked over at her. "Two-thousand?"
"Oh like you know." She waved a hand through the air. "You said so yourself; you didn't know how old you were so it could be three for all we know."
"I can assure you it's not three." He growled.
"Fine fine; two it is." She smirked at him.
"You will be punished." He countered then looked back over at her mother.
"Your son tells me you two will be married within the year is that correct?"
Toga sighed deeply and nodded. "Though it won't be married on the scale you're thinking of. We'll be mated so that her life span will nearly match mine or possibly exceed depending on how the shikon handles the infusion of my power into her body."
"What do you mean," Kagome questioned before her mother could ask her own. "handle the infusion?"
"Just what it means." He nodded at her. "You have purification powers flowing through you because of the jewel. Those powers will try to fight off my powers seeing them as a threat to you. You'll have to learn to control your powers so they will accept me and not try to kill me."
"Wait," she stared at him wide eyed. "you mean to tell me that I could purify you if I don't learn to control my powers?"
"Something like that." He again nodded at her. "That's why between now and our mating you'll be training to control your powers."
"Are you saying my daughter is magical?" She questioned the demon wide eyed.
"For the most part; yes." He gave her a curt nod. "Kagome is the reincarnation of the great shikon priestess Mirdioko. Within her body she carries the jewel itself and upon the birth of her first female child the jewel will pass on. The cycle will then repeat itself from here until the jewel lives out its purpose."
"And what is it's purpose?" She questioned rather curious about the jewel. Sure she had heard her father talk about it non-stop her whole life but never paid much mind to it.
"That my dear lady is a question for the ages." He smirked. "Only the true creator knows to what end the jewel seeks and she has long since passed on."
"You knew Mirdioko?" She questioned even more curious about this inu than she was when she first heard about him.
"Hai," he nodded. "I battled her on more occasions than I would like to count. She hated my kind and wanted to wipe us all from the face of the earth."
"Why did she hate youkai so much?" Kagome questioned with brows drawn.
He snorted at that. "The same reason all women hate men." He smirked at her. "She was scorned by her youkai lover; why else."
"Now that's dumb." She rolled her eyes.
"Well that's a woman for you." He countered.
She suddenly glared at him. "What are you trying to say?"
"Absolutely nothing." He leaned over and planted a quick kiss on her lips.
"I bet." She glared even harder at him.
He snorted at her then turned back to her mother. "I must apologize on behalf of your heathen child here." He waved a hand to the girl next to him and began talking when she opened her mouth to protest. "My son informed me of how she went about telling you of me and of how she managed to allow you to let her move out." He sighed. "I had intended on confronting you personally to make my intentions clear but as you well know that curse-ed well caused a lot of unwanted problems."
"As I have heard from my daughter." She smiled at him. "Had it been anyone else I do believe I would have considered them crazy."
"As would I." He nodded in agreement. "As a mystical being myself a magical time traveling well seems rather extraordinary."
"I don't want to talk about that damn well anymore." Kagome hissed. "For that matter I think you or Sesshoumaru should destroy it once and for all before some innocent child falls in there and never comes back." She nodded curtly at him.
"I believe the well only works for those closely linked to the shikon no tama so I highly doubt some innocent child will fall in." He nodded at her.
"Oh well then tell that to you daughter when she comes to visit grandma and falls in or gets pulled in by some demon." She glared. "You just remember this day and I'll say I told you so."
When she put it that way he was half tempted to destroy the well. "No," he sighed deeply. "the well is mysterious and destroying it could release the lost souls of demons long since dead. Instead I will seek out a monk or a priestess with the powers of the past to seal it off."
"I'm a priestess." Kagome stared at him.
"Yes and would you know what to do to seal it closed?" He arched a silver brow highly.
"Well if someone told me what to do I could." She pointed out smartly.
"Alright;" he crossed his arms over his chest. "lets see you draw your powers to the surface and make a small flame with your fingers."
"Easy." She nodded cockily and held her hand out in front of her.
Toga watched her scrunch her face up and try to press her powers to the surface and smirked at her. "Easy."
"Alright alright." She gave up and plopped back into the couch. "Find a professional."
"Good." He agreed then looked back over at her mother. "We're getting off track here."
"Oh don't worry," she smiled at him. "I can now see why you two love each other so much."
"What is that suppose to mean?" Kagome questioned her mother suspiciously.
"Nothing dear." She smiled at her daughter.
Kagome narrowed her eyes upon the woman not entirely believing her. "So does that mean we have your blessings or not?" She questioned still not sure she should trust her.
"Yes in the sense that I want you to be happy and with him I can see how happy you are." She stared at her daughter. "But I still want to say no because of how young you are."
"I know." She nodded at her. "Just think though; in about a year you'll be a grandma."
Toga pinched the bridge of his now. "Not the best choice of things to say at the moment."
"A… grandma?" She gasped. "I'm too young to be a grandma."
"Yea I bet grandma said that to you about me." Kagome smirked. "Only she was younger than you are now when I was born."
Her mother suddenly grinned. "You know dear I think you should call your grandmother and tell her what you've been up to lately."
"Oh no you don't." She pointed a finger at her. "I will not have gram gram's death on my head."
Toga glanced over at the wall clock and decided it was time to go. "Well I'm sorry to cut this short but I must get home to speak with my son about what he's done to his sibling."
"Did he hurt him?" She questioned and stood up when he did.
"I'm not entirely sure." He sighed. "But I aim to find out as soon as I get home."
"Well it was a pleasure meeting you and I hope we can get together again real soon." She gave him a small bow.
"As do I." He returned the gesture in kind then looked over at Kagome. "Ready?"
"Yea; I want to know where Inuyasha went too." She stepped over to her mother and hugged her. "Thank you ." She whispered in her ear.
"I know." She smiled as she hugged her back. "Don't be a stranger."
Kagome stepped away from her and nodded. "I won't. Tell gramps and Sota I said bye." She followed Toga towards the door. "And I'll stop by this weekend and play a game with him or something."
"Will do dear." She waved.
Kagome waved back and walked out the door after slipping her shoes on. "Well that went over smoothly." She slipped her arm through his.
He snorted at that. "Well you did already give her the heart attack so I'm not surprised."
"See that made this visit all the easier to deal with."
"You were still wrong." He pointed out.
Kagome huffed and looked up at him. "Am I going to hear about this for the rest of my life? What's done is done and we can't change it now."
"I don't know about that." He answered thoughtfully with a glance over at the well house.
"Oh no you don't." She ordered. "No more well adventures."
"I agree." He smiled down at her as they walked down the many steps to his car. "I think we should have a nice quiet normal life from here on out."
"Me too." She smiled up at him and got into the car when he opened the door for her.
~3 Months Later~
"Sesshoumaru I can't do this anymore." She rubbed her temples. "We've been at it nonstop for three days I need a break."
"Very well." He nodded curtly and stood up. "One hour and back to work."
Kagome stared wide eyed at him. "That's not what I meant! I meant I'm done studying!"
"You do not wish to pass?" He arched a silver brow at her.
"Of course I do." She huffed. "But how am I going to pass when I'm in the hospital passed out from exhaustion?"
"You are not exhausted." He snorted. "You slept last night; did you not?"
Her face suddenly went a tomato red. "Kinda."
He would have cringed were he the type of youkai that did that sort of thing. "You will keep your bedroom escapades with my father to yourself." He ordered.
"I didn't say anything." She looked up at him then suddenly smirked evilly. "But it you want I can tell you all about it in GREAT detail."
"We are through for the day." He oared then swept from the room before she could say another word.
"Wow; should have thought of that days ago." She nodded to herself proudly.
"Thought of what?" Toga questioned from the doorway.
"Oh telling Sesshoumaru about our sex life." She waved a dismissive hand through the air.
Ambers widened hugely. "I can't imagine he wanted to hear much about it." He nodded as he walked over to the desk.
"He didn't." She smirked. "That's why he's not here."
"And do tell what would prompt you to tell him about our life in the bedroom?"
She reached up and began rubbing the muscles in her neck and sighed deeply. "I need a break from studying he and he wasn't going to let me have it." She huffed. "I mean three days straight; I'm going to overload and fail if I don't let it sink in. Plus my editor is trying to push a new idea on me for my next book and I NEED a break."
"Well," he stared at her seeing how stressed and tired she was. "here's a couple of options for you."
"I'm listening." She nodded up at him ready to take any options that would give her a break.
"You can either just stay in school and finish it out or you can drop out and go back later when things settle down some."
"I don't know." She drew her brows. "I mean just dropping out would be a waste of all the studying I've done over the last three days."
"Well then just stay in school and graduate with your classmates." He nodded at her.
"That's two years away and I'm NOT going to go to school while pregnant!" She glared at him just daring him to challenge her on the subject.
"Alright;" he conceded. "if that's the case we can put off our joining until you're done with school."
"No!" She shot to her feet and narrowed her eyes upon him. "I'm not waiting two more years. I'm going to do this my way or no way at all!"
"What is the big deal if you wait a few more years?" He arched a brow at her.
She plopped back down in her chair and fiddled with her book. "I don't want to wait that long." She blushed a light crimson. "You want to be with me and I want to be with you."
"We'll still be together even if we wait another year or two." He tried to comfort.
"Yea," she agreed. "but what about all that jealousy stuff?" She looked up at him. "Anything can happen in the next two years and what if something does happen that's purely innocent but gets misconstrued as something else? What then?" She sighed deeply. "I don't want to risk it."
"This has been bothering you for some time." He moved around and kneeled beside her.
"Ever since you told me about it it has always sat at the back of my mind." Instead of looking at him she looked at her book and toyed with the corner of the page. "Every time one of my male classmates talks to me I think about it. Or if they get too close and accidentally touch me and you see it; what then? I can't live with the stress of being in limbo per your natural possessive instinct." She looked over at him. "That's why I can't wait that long."
He had no idea she spent so much time taking into consideration his bestial instincts. She was right to worry even if she was erring on the side of caution. If one of her classmates did touch her in an inappropriate area even on accident he would take it as a threat. However his more rational side would also know that there was no threat there and try to control the raging beast. It was a fifty/fifty shot that he could contain the jealousy.
He grabbed her hand and held it comfortingly in his larger and gently caressed it with his thumb. "Whatever you decide to do I will support your decision."
She looked over at him and smiled. "Thank you." She leaned down and planted a kiss on his lips. "But if you really want to help could get your overbearing son to let me have a break once in awhile." She sighed deeply. "I mean he made me eat AND study at the same time like I was going to forget everything I learned if I stopped for thirty minutes to eat."
He chuckled at that causing her to glare at him. "Alright I'll have a talk with him but just know this might make him stop tutoring you."
"I never said I wanted him to tutor me; just help me when I needed it." She huffed. "He took the job waaaay to seriously and no matter what I say he won't back off."
"Yes he is a very stubborn boy." He agreed.
"Speaking of stubborn," she stared at him. "did you ever get it out of him about Inuyasha?"
He snorted at that. "No. I even called my contacts at the boot camp and they said they haven't seen hide nor hair of Inuyasha since his last visit."
"You don't think he actually killed him this time; do you?"
He gave a small shake of his head. "No; don't worry about it I'll find him eventually."
"I hope so." She smiled. "I'm kinda missing his loud foul mouth."
"As am I." He planted a kiss on her cheek. "Well I have to get back to work."
"Okay I'll come check on you in a little while after I go have it out with your pompous son."
"Alright and good luck with that." He smirked then headed for the door.
"Yea well if he gets out of control I'll purify him." She held her hand up and let it glow pink. "See those classes are paying off."
He laughed at that. "Just don't kill him; he is my son and I'd still miss him."
"Hmmm…' she hummed as she stared thoughtfully at her hand. "maybe just a limb or two. He doesn't need his left hand."
Toga laughed at that as he headed for his office to finish off his paperwork.
~2 Months After That~
"YES!" Kagome waved the paper in font of Sesshoumaru's face causing Toga to chuckle. "And you thought I couldn't do it!"
Sesshoumaru snatched the paper from her hand and snorted as he looked it over. "Barely."
"HEY!" She defended with a pointed finger in his face. "B's and C's are still passing."
"And a D." He pointed out smartly.
"Only in science." She rolled her eyes. "And I very much doubt I'll ever use what I did learn about science." She then narrowed her eyes upon him. "Alright now it's time to pay up; where's Inuyasha." She demanded.
"Yes I would like an answer to that as well." Toga glared at his son.
Sesshoumaru sighed irritably through his nose. "The brat is in Russia training with their military." He handed the paper back to Kagome.
"You didn't." Kagome gasped remembering what Sesshoumaru had explained to her about Russia's military experience when she was studying her world history.
"How long." Toga growled ready to belt his son in the mouth.
"Three years." He nodded curtly. "Next month he will call you providing he passes his drills."
"You've been keeping in touch with him; haven't you." Kagome accused.
"Hn." He grunted.
"YOU HAVE!" She pointed at him again. "Why didn't you tell us?"
Sesshoumaru looked over at his father. "Someone would have used his ties to get him back." He glared at Toga. "I had to wait until he was in too deep to be pulled out by daddy to inform you of his whereabouts."
Toga pinched the bridge of his nose. "You had no right." He growled.
"You were not here to make the decision." Sesshoumaru growled right back.
"Using my absence as an excuse to get your way…"
"Stop it!" Kagome ordered. "Arguing about it now will do no good."
Toga sighed deeply and tried to calm his ire. "Alright how long until he can come home?"
"That is strictly dependant on him and his behavior." Sesshoumaru answered smoothly. "As it stands currently he will be eligible to visit in six months. However should he misbehave or cause any troubles for himself it'll be one year before he can return."
"Now tell me the reason you sent him away in the first place." Toga ordered.
Sesshoumaru pressed his lips together tightly. "He severely injured a human that flirted with his girlfriend. It was either send him away or send him to prison."
"Oh my god!" Kagome gasped. "Why didn't you tell me?"
"You had enough worries and Inuyasha did not need to be a concern to you at the time." He nodded curtly at her then looked over at his father. "Youkai boot camp refused to take him back I had to find another place for him to go."
"So you picked Russia?" He stared at his son unbelievingly.
"No one else would take him." He then arched a silver brow. "Unless you'd prefer me to have let the authorities put him in prison?"
"I suppose of the two Russia is the lesser evil." Toga sighed.
Kagome looked up at him. "What would you have done were you here when it happened?"
He shook his head. "I don't know; probably the same."
"I guess as long as he gets to come home eventually it isn't so bad." She looked at Toga hopefully. "Right?"
"At this point there isn't much to be done about it and maybe this is just what he needs." He nodded at her then looked back at Sesshoumaru. "I wish to speak with him."
Sesshoumaru sighed irritably through his nose but gave a curt nod anyway. "Very well; he receives one call a week on Friday evenings. You can speak to him then."
"Good." Toga nodded at him.
~1 Month Later~
"Hi pops." Inuyasha answered softly.
"Are you alright?" He questioned concerned since Inuyasha didn't sound at all like his normal self.
"Of course I am." He defended. "We had drills today and I'm tired."
"Is that the truth or are you really miserable?" He wasn't convinced that his boy was just tired. He knew Inuyasha and knew that when he was tired he was cranky not reserved.
"I'm fine." He bit out. "Not that you care."
"Of course I care." He defended. "Believe me if I could get you out of this I would but you also have to understand you brought this upon yourself."
"I didn't do anything." He countered.
"According to your brother and the police report I believe you did a lot more than nothing."
"It was an accident." He growled in a whisper.
Toga sighed deeply. "Hitting some boy because he flirted with your girlfriend is no accident."
"He didn't just flirt with her!" He bellowed into the phone. "Not that it's any of your business but he touched her ass!"
"Even still," he countered. "he's a human and you're a hanyou you could have killed him."
"I know already!" He growled. "Sesshoumaru has already read me the right act a thousand times!"
"Boy," he started deadly but was stopped when Kagome grabbed the phone from his hand.
"I'm sure you're not helping." She growled and put the phone to her ear. "Inuyasha."
"How are you?" She questioned softly.
"Alright." He answered sounding just like his old self.
Kagome narrowed her eyes suspiciously. "Are you sure?"
"Yes I'm sure." He bit back.
"HEY!" Kagome glowered. "Just because you're mad about something doesn't mean you have to be a jerk about it!"
"Watch who you're calling a jerk bitch!" He growled back.
Kagome gasped her anger nearly pushing the air right out of her. "Bitch? Why you self-centered jerk! You better be glad you're thousands of miles away!"
"Or what?" He challenged.
"Or you'd see what I'm like when I'm really mad!"
"Keh." He huffed over the phone. "I'm not scared of you."
"Yea well you just remember you said that when you do finally come home." She countered. "You're such a jerk Inuyasha!" She bit out then handed the phone to Toga. "See I don't know what you're so worried about he's still the same jackass as he was before he left." With that she stormed out of his office.
Toga smirked at her retreating form as he put the phone to his ear. "Well that sounded pleasant."
Inuyasha grinned in spite of himself. "She has a broken brain or sumethin." He snorted. "Are you sure she's the one?"
"Definitely." He smiled as he stared at the door she exited through. "Look son I'll see what I can do about getting you out of there."
"Nah it's not so bad." He grunted. "It's not much different than youkai camp. The only thing that really pisses me off about it is all the sour cabbage they feed us; that shit is disgusting."
"It's an acquired taste I suppose." He smirked. "I'll send you some stuff now that I know where you are to make it easier."
"Thanks dad." He smiled into the phone. "And before I have to go; do me a favor will ya?"
"Tell Sesshoumaru to go fuck himself." He growled.
He shook his head. "Just this once I'll tell him."
"Thanks; well I have to go they're serving dinner and if I'm late I won't get to eat."
"Take care son and I'll talk to you soon."
"Kay." He answered. "Love ya pops."
"Love you too." He answered then hung up the phone.
~2 More Months Go By~
"Are you sure I have to do this?" Kagome questioned worriedly as she stared at him. Her high from all their foreplay receding very quickly with each passing minute.
Toga sighed deeply. "Can you trust yourself not to purify me on accident?"
"I don't know." She shook her head. "I mean I wouldn't want to and I definitely wouldn't mean to but…"
"Exactly." He nodded at her. "I can not take the risk so you have to wear them."
She sighed deeply knowing full well that she was going to have to give in on this. She loved him too much to risk purifying him in a moment of passion. "Alright." She conceded and laid back in the bed.
Toga smiled at her as he trailed his hand up over her bared hip, along her side, to her arm, and maneuvered it so it was up above her head. "I'll make it quick so it won't hurt for so long."
Kagome nodded at him and lifted her other hand above her head. "I trust you."
He leaned down and planted a kiss on her lips. "Thank you." He kissed her again then cuffed her hands to the metal frame with the cuffs.
She hissed in pain as the power within the metal cuffs shot through her body to wrap around the jewel within her side. "How long will this take?" She questioned brows furrowed as she tried to ignore the sting within her side.
"A few moments." He answered and maneuvered himself so he was set between her legs. "Ready?"
Kagome stared into his deep ambers, took a deep breath, and nodded. "Ready."
He leaned down and began making hot love to her mouth as he pressed himself deep into her hot wet cavern.
Kagome groaned into his mouth as he began a hard fast pace of thrusting into her. She could feel his jaki seeping from his body and into her own. Something inside her was screaming at her to push back against the consuming evil aura and she tried to suppress it. 'This is Toga; he would never hurt me. I love him. He loves me. I will have our daughter.' She kept repeating in her head.
Toga lifted up and stared at her face. "Fight it Kagome." He ordered as he began thrusting faster and harder. "Remember why we are doing this."
"Our daughter." She hissed through her clenched tightly teeth.
"And?" She questioned back as she stared at him through cracked lids.
"Once this is over you will be mated to me proper." He smiled at her.
"Right." She tried to smile back then suddenly arched against the pain of her powers trying to surface but being forced back. "Hurry; please." She panted as a small sheen of sweat graced her brow.
"Almost." He grunted and let his jaki flow more freely causing his eyes to bleed a deep crimson.
Kagome watched in horrified wonder as Toga's eyes changed color and his once small canines began to grow and thicken. "Oh god don't bite me." She pleaded as a vision of those huge teeth taking off a chunk of her skin passed her mind's eye.
Toga looked down at her and arched a silver brow. Really; THAT was her biggest concern at that moment? With Sesshoumaru's mother and Inuyasha's mother it was his jaki that they feared the most. Just for the thrill of it he was half tempted to knick her a little but thought better of it since she was suffering enough. "Almost." He growled sounding like a feral beast.
Kagome arched her back when he thrust deep and hit her cervix sharply. It hurt so good that it almost canceled out the other pain. That caused her to decide that instead of focusing on the physical pain she was suffering she'd focus on the pleasurable pain. No sense in suffering when she didn't really need to. "Right there." She moaned and arched up a second time when he hit the exact same spot.
Toga smirked and made sure to hit the same spot over and over again causing her to cry out his name over and over again. "Such a beautiful voice." He purred, leaned down, and latched onto a nipple.
"Oh Kami Toga I can't!" She moaned deeply and tired to press tightly against him.
He growled against her flesh. "Let go Kagome."
"I…" She moaned, clamped down on him, and let herself go.
Toga pulled up and snarled at how tight and pleasurably good it felt when she orgasmed and found his own end with a few more thrusts. His jaki exploded out from his body pressing against the girl panting beneath him seeking out every pour on her body binding her to him for life.
A whimper tore from her throat the intense stinging sensation of his jaki intensified. It felt like her skin was on fire from head to toe. "It hurts." She squeezed her eyes shut causing small tears to escape the corners.
"It's almost over." He whispered quietly and nuzzled her cheek with his own as his jaki slowly pulled back into him. "Just breathe; slow deep breaths."
Kagome nodded and began taking long slow breaths causing her body to slowly relax and the pain to recede.
Toga reached up and released the cuffs around her wrist and rolled them over so she was lying on top of him. "It's over." He stroked her back. "And in seven months our daughter will be born."
"Seven?" She lifted up and stared down at him.
"Yes seven." He nodded and caressed her cheek. "It will be a hanyou and as such will grow faster than a human child. Now if it was full blooded youkai," he smirked at her. "it would be six."
"Wow." She stared wide eyed at him. "So how bad is the birth going to be; really?"
"I can't say." He shrugged. "I guess it depends on your ability to handle pain."
"I don't know if I can handle it. What kind of pain would it be?"
"Normal child bearing pain." He nodded at her. "Which could be bad or worse depending on the size of the child."
"Well we're having a girl and girls are small." She nodded at him.
"They are." He smiled and stroked his fingers though her hair. "Would you believe Sesshoumaru is excited for a little sister?"
"I wouldn't believe Sesshoumaru and excited could go in the same sentence." She snorted.
"That makes two of us." He smirked in kind. 'However he is excited or as excited as someone like him can get."
"So what were his exact words?" She questioned suspiciously.
"That a sister will be a nice change from a brother." He nearly rolled his eyes.
"Wow that's pretty excited for him." She shook her head. "Though I can't wait to see him with his little sister and the first time he holds her."
"Get the camera ready."
"Agreed." She giggled and hugged him tightly. "I can't wait for her to be born."
"Me either." He kissed her brow. "Now sleep and get rested up so I can ravage you some more."
"It's not going to be like this time; is it?" She questioned as she stared at him.
"No; you're already with child from here on out it's just for pleasure." He leered and gave her bared bottom a small smack causing her to squeal.
"How do you know I'm pregnant?" She furrowed her brows deeply.
"I don't." He shrugged. "But we'll find out for sure in a couple of weeks and if not we'll do it again."
"Ooh I hope I am so I don't have to go through all that again." She scrunched her nose.
"Nor will you." He pointed out. "This time wasn't only to create a child it was to bind you to me. That's a one time deal pain and all. Now making a baby we can do that as many times as it takes until it sticks with only wanted pain."
"I like that better." She kissed him then suddenly pulled back and yawned hugely. "Wow I'm worn out." She stretched against him.
"Yes and that's why I told you to go to sleep."
"Alright alright." She snuggled against him and closed her eyes. "Goodnight."
"Goodnight." He rumbled, wrapped his arms around her, and closed his own eyes just as exhausted as she was.
~3 Months Later~
Kagome stared at the house and shook her head. "No. It's facing the wrong way."
Toga glowered at her. "Woman this is the twentieth house today and I don't know how many since we started looking two months ago. Either pick one or I'll pick one myself."
Deep blues narrowed to deadly little slits as she ran her hand over her swollen stomach. "Well excuse me for wanting the perfect house. AND do I need to remind you that you said to take a long as I want so I could make sure to find the exact one I wanted?
"Yes I did and that included building one." He pointed out. "And you have yet to even look at floor plans."
"Well mister smarty pants by the time the house is done Rin will already be born." She countered knowingly.
"So;" he countered right back. "it won't take that long to build. Now Kagome I'm putting my foot down. Either pick one we've seen or pick one to build and if you don't have one picked out by the end of the week I'll do it myself."
"You wouldn't!" She pointed a sharp finger at him.
"Yes I would." He came right back at her. "I am tired of searching for a house that doesn't exist just pick one so you can get busy with all the decorating and what ever else you want to do with it." He said trying to change her focus from picking the right house to thinking about interior design. Sesshoumaru had told him to take that route a long time ago and he should have listened to him.
"Decorating?" She drew her brows.
"Yes decorating." He nodded at her. "Like picking what color the baby's room is going to be, how you want to arrange the furniture, and everything else that comes with getting a new house."
"Well in that case." She beamed at him. "I want the house we looked at last week." She nodded. "You know the big white one with the creepy windows." She reminded when he drew his brows.
"You said you hated that one because of the windows." He pointed out beginning to think her hormones were way out of whack and needing another visit to the doctor.
"Well had I known the windows could be replaced I would have picked it the first time I saw it."
He arched a silver brow at her. "You didn't honestly think I'd make you live in whatever house you chose as is; did you?"
She shrugged at him. "You never said I would be able to change it."
He opened his mouth to respond to that but quickly closed it. This was one of those instances that could lead right into a nasty argument and he was in no mood. "Alright the white one it is." He led her to the car. 'I'll call the bank tomorrow and make all the necessary arrangements."
She beamed up at him when he opened the door for her. "How long do you think until we can move in?"
"A few weeks." He leaned down and planted a quick kiss on her brow. "In the meantime you can start looking at decorating ideas so you'll know what you want to do when we move in."
"Oooh I can't wait." She squealed and got into the car.
"Neither can I." He sighed after he closed her door.
~9 Months Later~
"Sesshoumaru put her down!" Kagome growled at the inu.
"She is my sister and I will hold her if I wish." He countered.
Kagome narrowed her eyes to deadly little slits. "Not all day every day!"
He gave her a haughty sniff then turned and left the room baby sister Rin still securely in his arms.
"Sesshoumaru!" She bellowed trying to get the overgrown pompous ass to come back.
"What is going on in here?" Toga questioned while looking around confusedly.
Kagome huffed and crossed her arms over her chest in a fit. "It's Sesshoumaru!" She pointed a finger in the direction he left. "He won't put her down; EVER! She's going to grow up thinking she never has to walk anywhere!"
Toga shook his head and sighed deeply. He should have known that that's what she was yelling about. It had been the same story from the day Rin was born. "Well he loves his little sister."
"Well he should go out and get a little girl of his own." She growled. "Isn't it high time he got married and started his own family?"
He shrugged at that. "Well not necessarily."
"What do you mean not necessarily?" She narrowed her eyes deeply.
"He's still young by youkai standards." He shrugged. "Nineteen years young by human standards for that matter."
"So what." She bit out. "I was sixteen when I started dating you."
"Oh? And would you have gone this far at that age with anyone else?" He arched a silver brow highly at her.
"Irrelevant." She waved a dismissive hand through the air. "The point is he needs to stop carrying her around everywhere he goes."
"Give it time I'm sure it'll wear off and besides he only gets to see her on the weekends."
"Like a hole in the head wears off?" She countered with a glare ignoring the last half of his statement.
He just stared at her for a long moment trying to determine the origins of this whole hormonal fit. Sesshoumaru holding Rin all the time couldn't really bother her THAT much; could it? "Are you pregnant?"
"What?" She stared at him like he had suddenly gone completely crazy. "Of course I'm not pregnant."
He eyed her skeptically. "Are you sure? When was your last date?"
"Last month." She scowled not wanting to talk about that with him.
"Alright then when are you due?"
"None of your business!" She hissed then turned and stormed out of the room.
Toga sighed tiredly and looked over at his eldest when he walked into the room. "Put her down."
"Iie." He growled.
He didn't know if he should laugh or yell at him. In the end however he decided to just let it be. "Well you might be carrying two of them around nonstop if Kagome is pregnant like I think she is."
"She is not pregnant." He nodded curtly. "She is suffering that pms thing woman have prior to…" He trailed off and made a barely noticeable wrinkling of his nose.
"Oh? And do tell how do you know that?"
The small wrinkle in his nose turned into a full blown scowl as he stared at him. "She ordered me to bring some supplies only sold in the city. Namely her little pills to make the ailments go away."
He had to bite the inside of his cheek to keep from laughing. The image of Sesshoumaru in the woman's department trying to buy Kagome's girly things was the funniest thing he ever imagined in his life.
"I will kill you." Sesshoumaru threatened seeing his father trying to hold in his laughter.
"Alright not a word." He smirked.
Sesshoumaru glared at him suspiciously not believing him. He was sure his father was going to go have a good long laugh at his misfortune.
Toga opened his mouth to respond to that when Kagome's voice rang through his ears instead.
"INUYAHSA WHAT DID YOU DO!"
"Oh now what?" Toga sighed as he turned around to face the direction the noise was coming from.
"BITCH I'M ONLY DOING WHAT YOU TOLD ME TO DO!"
"YOU CALL ME THAT AGAIN AND I SWEAR I'LL CASTRAE YOU!"
"What is going on?"
Sesshoumaru smirked from behind his father. "He picked the wrong color paint after I specifically told him it was wrong."
He shook his head and turned to face his son. "I wonder if this has less to do with pms and more to do with out of balance hormones from Rin's birth."
Sesshoumaru just gave a barely there shrug. "Maybe she's tired of being cooped up in this house and needs a vacation." He pointed out. "Four months straight here with just you must be wearing on her nerves."
"Very funny." He growled. "Though perhaps you're right. I should send her home with you to see her family and friends for a few days."
"You should speak with her first." He pointed out. "Wouldn't want to be purified for making a wrong decision." He smirked then suddenly had an idea. "You should introduce her to Naraku as she is perhaps she'll rid us of his existence."
"Already have." He snorted. "He showed up and within five minutes he was bowing to her swearing to move the world for her if she so asked it of him."
Very few times in his life had he ever been shocked and this was one of those times.
"Exactly." Toga nodded. "I believe he fears her true power."
Sesshoumaru snorted at that. "We would all be dead should she discover the depths of the power she holds.
"What's worse;" he sighed. "is that the jewel didn't pass on to Rin." He nodded at his daughter still in Sesshoumaru's arms. "Which leads me to believe that Kagome is the truest reincarnation of Mirdioko to date."
"YOU BETTER GET YOUR ASS TO THE STORE AND FIX THIS!" Kagome bellowed at the hanyou who suddenly shot through the living room past father and brother towards the front door. "Stupid bitch!" He growled as he slammed the door behind him.
Toga snorted. "As you can see they have the exact same personality."
"I do not remember her being so unstable." Sesshoumaru stared at his father. "Irritable yes so vocal and threatening no."
"Boy you were just a child when he knew her." He pointed out. "You never had to face her rage especially when she was mad at one or all youkai because of whatever reason."
"Tell me father how is it she never purified you to hell?"
He just shrugged. "Maybe she was in love with me."
Amber eyes narrowed to thin little slits. "Save your arrogance for someone that doesn't know you."
Toga chuckled at that. "Well son I can't say why she never did. Maybe it was because I protected all who resided within my domain," he shrugged. "humans included."
"A folly on your part to be sure." Sesshoumaru pointed out.
"Not all humans are bad." He countered.
"Neither are they all good."
"Alright I don't want to get into this discussion with you now." He sighed. "Besides hating human and hanyou," he emphasized. "means you hate her." He nodded towards his daughter.
"I do not dislike all hanyou and humans." He growled and held his sister a little closer to him protectively. "Just those that serve no purpose on this earth."
"Your brother serves a purpose." He glared at him.
"If that was so he would have fulfilled that purpose by now." He nodded curtly. "However as it stands…"
"I said put her down!" Kagome suddenly appeared in the living room cutting him off.
"No." He huffed then turned and left the room.
Toga stared at his irritated little woman and held his hand out to her. "Come here."
She eyed him suspiciously for a moment before slowly slipping her hand into his and allowing him to pull her into his warm embrace. "I'm tired." She sighed and buried her face into his chest.
He gently rubbed her back and set his chin on her head. "How would you like a break?"
"What do you mean?" She questioned as she slipped her arms around his waist and hugged him.
"I mean get out of this house." He looked down at her when she turned her head to look up at him. "You can go back to the city with Sesshoumaru and visit your family and friends."
A slow smile crept onto her lips. "I'd like that." She nodded. "But what about you?"
"I have work that needs to get done and I need to figure out what to do with Inuyasha." He nodded at her. "Besides you'll have centuries of me you should spend time with those you love as much as you can. Plus I'm sure everyone is missing Rin by now and I know Sesshoumaru is dying to show her off at work."
"What is his obsession with her anyway?" She scowled up at him. "It's strange even for him."
"I agree." He smirked. "But honestly I think that one it's because Rin is a girl and two he's trying a different approach with this sibling then he did Inuyasha."
"I guess." She sighed. "I just wish he would quit carrying her around all the time; it's not healthy."
He shrugged. "I don't know about now but when she gets older it might be a problem." He leaned down and planted a kiss on her brow. "Just let him have his time with her maybe it will wear off maybe it won't but either way I'm sure this will come back and bite him in the ass one day."
"What do you mean?" She drew her brows deeply.
"Well one day Rin will be all grown up wanting to make her own choices in life." He nodded at her and smirked. "That's when overbearing big brother will have his hands full as I'm sure she won't stand for him interfering in her life."
"He wouldn't; would he?"
"What you can't see him being like that already?" He looked over into the kitchen where Sesshoumaru was quietly and gently growling while rocking Rin in his arms. "Look at him," he turned her to face the scene. "does that look like a youkai that's going to let his little sister do whatever she wants?"
"Yes." Kagome nodded curtly.
"I meant not just having her way because she has him wrapped around her little finger. I mean when it comes to boys and friends and going out," he sighed deeply. "and all that other stuff teenaged girls do."
"Oh." She nodded and looked back at him. "Yea Rin will be under lockdown should Sesshoumaru have anything to say about it.
"I don't know if that's a good thing or bad." He sighed then smiled. "Though between you and me this is the happiest I've ever seen my son."
"I guess but it does make me wonder." She looked back at Sesshoumaru. "What's he going to be like when he has kids of his own?"
"Now that my dear is a question for the ages." He wrapped his arms around her and held her back against his chest. "I suppose only time will tell."
"Well we have a lot of that on our hands." She smiled. "And a number one best seller; magic well, ancient youkai, and a trip though time no one would believe."
"Can't wait to read it." He grinned quite happy with the way the ending turned out.
