Disclaimer: I still don't own Inuyasha, but I do own my characters that appear later in this story.
Summery: Inuyasha and Kagome are going to be parents. Uh oh…Kagome has some weird cravings...What's this? A new enemy? Will Inuyasha and Kagome survive parenthood and be able to defeat this new enemy?
'Where is he?' Kagome thought as she looked for Inuyasha.
Kagome was at her two month point in her pregnancy, and since this baby (or as Inuyasha put it, pup) were part demon…that meant that Kagome only had two more months to go.
'Found him.' Kagome spotted Inuyasha on his favorite branch in the Tree of Ages.
"Inuyasha!" Kagome shouted, hearing a groan coming from her mate.
"What?!" Inuyasha said then he jumped down from 'his' branch.
Kagome walked up to Inuyasha and rested her head on his shoulder.
"I wanna go see the house you made me…Please?" Kagome begs, feeling Inuyasha sigh and then wrap his arms around his mate.
"They don't know you're pregnant." Starts Inuyasha.
Kagome looked up at Inuyasha and frowned.
"Stop thinking about what Miroku will say. C'mon Inuyasha, you said that the house was done." Kagome said then Inuyasha sighed.
"Alright" Inuyasha sighed and Kagome kissed his cheek.
Without another word Kagome ran into the house and came out with her backpack and a suitcase.
'Why me?' Inuyasha thought then he picked up the suitcase and followed Kagome to the well.
Sango looked up at her husband; seeing his bored expression.
"I wish you would stop doing that." Sango said as she stirred the pot of stew.
"I can't figure out why Inuyasha's the only one that's been coming through the well. "When I asked him about it he said that it wasn't any of my business…but in a ruder term." Miroku said then he saw Shippo stir in his sleep.
"He did talk to Kaede a while back……It had something to do with Kagome and a hut." Sango said then Miroku's eyes widened.
"Could it be that our friend is going to propose to Kagome?" Miroku thought out loud before Shippo woke up.
Shippo yawned then his eyes widened; a smile growing on his face.
"What is it Shippo?" asks Sango.
"Kagome's back!" Shippo said as he ran out of the hut and toward the well.
Once Inuyasha helped Kagome out of the well he picked up the suitcase and backpack and then started to walk toward the village.
Without warning Shippo leapt into Kagome's arms; hugging her tight.
"Shippo! Get off of her." Inuyasha said, dropping Kagome's stuff and tried to grab Shippo.
"Inuyasha" Kagome scolds her eyes flashing warningly at her mate.
"Welcome back Kagome." Sango said as she and Miroku walked toward the clearing.
Miroku's jaw dropped when he saw Kagome, a few minutes later it turned into a grin.
"Well…Now we know why Kagome wasn't coming with you." Miroku said as he nudged Inuyasha's arm.
"Shut up" Inuyasha growls, watching as Kagome placed Shippo down.
"Hey Sango, Inuyasha here has finally been successful with Kagome." Miroku said then Inuyasha hit his head.
"I said shut up!" growls Inuyasha.
Kagome sighed; placing a hand on Inuyasha's shoulder.
"Calm down…He's just trying to get up mad." Kagome whispered then she heard Sango gasp.
"Two months in." Kagome replied then Sango hugged her friend.
Without warning both women walked toward the village, Shippo soon following them.
Inuyasha sighed picking up the backpack and the suitcase before walking toward the village.
"Wait for me!" Miroku called as he ran after Inuyasha.
"I see child, you are with Inuyasha's child." Kaede said as she tended to her herb garden while Kagome talked.
"Yes…I know what some of the villagers will think. But I will always stay with Inuyasha." Kagome said then Kaede stood up.
"I think the villagers will be happy for the both of you." Kaede said then Kagome nodded.
"Thank you for everything Kaede." Kagome said then she saw Miroku running for Kaede's hut, and one ticked off half demon chasing the ex-monk.
"Get back here Miroku!" Inuyasha growls as he runs after the ex-monk.
Miroku reached Kaede's garden and hit behind Kagome; praying to every god he could have angered in his whole life.
Inuyasha leapt into the tree next to the garden; growling.
"Be a man Miroku and stop hiding!" shouts Inuyasha.
"What happened?" starts Kagome.
"I didn't do anything." Miroku replied, still hiding behind Kagome.
"Nothing?! You call what you said nothing?!" shouts Inuyasha.
"What? I was just commenting on how lucky you two were." Starts Miroku.
Inuyasha glared at Miroku; his eyes flashed for a moment.
"Inuyasha, calm down." Kagome said then Inuyasha jumped down from the tree.
"C'mon Inuyasha…it was just a joke." Starts Miroku.
"Inuyasha…SIT!" Kagome shouted before Inuyasha jumped behind her in order to get Miroku away from his mate, but sadly he got a mouth full of dirt.
"You better get back to Sango before he gets up." Kagome said and Miroku nodded before running off again.
Kagome looked at her mate face down and in a three foot hole, growling and whimpering.
"What am I going to do with you?" Kagome sighed as Inuyasha pulled himself out of the crater the sit made.
Inuyasha pouted at Kagome; causing Kaede to laugh at the sight.
Kagome looked at Inuyasha and sighed; taking his left ear in her right hand: gently rubbing it.
"No more bursts of anger." Suggests Kagome.
Inuyasha nodded; remembering that Kagome's mood swings were far more scarier then any demon.
"Good, now…C'mon I want to see that house you built." Kagome said then she waved goodbye to Kaede before Inuyasha picked her up and headed toward the edge of the forest.
'Ah…Young love' Kaede sighed to herself as she headed back to her hut.
