Chapter Eight

My One and Only

They made their way back to Kaede's village. They needed to recuperate and stock up on supplies.

"Are you gonna go home Kagome?" InuYasha questioned.

Kagome smiled, "Just to get more food and medical supplies."

"Maybe you should visit for a little while," InuYasha suggested.

"InuYasha, don't worry. I'll be there long enough to gather supplies, visit my family and take a bath. I'll be back in no time at all," Kagome answered.

"Okay, but don't rush. Take your time. I'm sure your family misses you. And after what happened, you need to have quality time with them," InuYasha explained.

"Okay, I will," Kagome replied.

What's going on? He's never like this. He really must love me. He's being so understanding, Kagome thought to herself.

They finally reached the village. Miroku, Sango , Shippo and Kirara went to see Kaede. InuYasha walked Kagome to the well. They walked hand in hand. Finally they admitted openly to their feelings for each other. They reached the well and Kagome sat on the edge.

"Alright, I'll be back by nightfall," Kagome said with a smile.

InuYasha kissed her lips gently. "I'll be waiting for you," he answered.

Kagome jumped into the well and disappeared. InuYasha sat in front of the well. He took a deep breath and closed his eyes.

I want you to be safe. I love you too much to see you get hurt again. Please Kagome, stay home for as long as you want, InuYasha thought to himself.

Kagome touched down in her own time. She climbed out of the well and left the shrine. She walked to her front door and went inside."I'm home!" Kagome announced.

She walked into the kitchen where she found her mom, grandpa and little brother Sota.

"Well hello Kagome. You look exhausted, shall I run you a bath?" her mother asked sweetly.

Kagome sighed, "That would be wonderful. I also came for more food and medical supplies."

"Alright, I'll draw your bath and then get those things together for you," her mother replied.

Kagome smiled, "Thanks mom."

Kagome sat at the table and started eating. She was so hungry she ate everything in front her . When she finished she went up to her room to gather her clothes and more school books. When that was all ready she headed into the bathroom to take her bath. She undressed and climbed into the tub.

"Ahh, a nice hot bath. Nothing could be better," Kagome moaned.

InuYasha was still sitting in front of the well. Night had fallen. The sky was filled with bright, sparkling stars. Just then Kagome climbed out of the well and landed in InuYasha's lap.

"Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't think you'd still be right here," Kagome apologized.

InuYasha smiled, "It's okay, I don't mind when beautiful things fall into my lap."

InuYasha caressed Kagome's cheek gently. Then he brushed a stray hair behind her ear.

"It's nice to be alone together," InuYasha whispered.

"Mmhmm," Kagome responded weakly.

InuYasha's touch was making her tremble all over. Then, he kissed her passionately, but still gently. Her body became like jello. All of her will power was gone. He released her from his kiss and starred deep into her chocolate colored eyes.

"Kagome, I want to make love to you. I love you and I need you," InuYasha's request was gentle.

Kagome just nodded. Her mind was empty. This passion that was coming from InuYasha was intoxicating and powerful. They slowly undressed each other. Then InuYasha wrapped his kimono around the two of them.He positioned himself on top of Kagome and she positioned herself underneath his body. She had so many emotions flooding her body. There was passion, excitement and nervousness. She took a deep breath and prepared herself for what was about to come.

InuYasha paused, "Are you sure this is okay?"

Kagome nodded, "Yes, this is what I want."

InuYasha slowly and gently entered Kagome's warm body. Kagome yelped, but that was to be expected. This was her first time after all. InuYasha planted kisses up and down Kagome's neck and soft breasts. He kept a slow and steady rocking motion.Tiny moans and sighs of pleasure escaped both of their lips. This was pure bliss for both of them.

Kagome couldn't believe how gentle InuYasha was being. She thought for sure his demon half would have made this a painful experience. But, it was wonderful.They finished together. Kagome felt like the luckiest girl in the world. InuYasha rolled on his back. Kagome snuggled up against his chest.

"Was that okay?" InuYasha asked breathlessly.

"Oh InuYasha, it was incredible," Kagome smiled sweetly.

InuYasha returned the smile, "I'm glad, I thought so too."

He kissed her forehead and they fell asleep, under the stars in each others arms.
