ok, I know I already have a fic going (Ignorance is Bliss, read if you haven't!Will be updated every Monday!) but that fic is going to be longer than this one and and didn't want to post the whole story in a week, so i thought of a shorter plot for a different story and came up with this. I will post as frequently as i can which will probably end up to be every other day or something. Notice the probably, that's the key word since i still have one summer project left. Anyway, on with the story!
Disclaimer: I sadly do not own Inuyasha and never will, but I do own my plot!
The Week of Madness
"AH!" Inuyasha cried out as the large cat demon bit his left arm leaving a deep wound.
Inuyasha was then thrown down to the ground where he winced as he struggled to push himself up.
"Inuyasha!" Kagome yelled running over to where he landed, "Are you okay?"
"Yeah," Inuyasha lied through clenched teeth, flinching as he put some pressure on his left arm, "Just a scratch."
Inuyasha suddenly leapt to his feet and grabbed Kagome before jumping away, barely dodging the claw that cleaved a hole where they just were. They landed a little ways away and Inuyasha pushed Kagome behind him, holding Tetsusaiga firmly in his right hand.
"Don't forget about me!" Sango yelled as she thrust her Hiraikotsu at the demon.
The demon leapt back, but the Hiraikotsu hit its target, slicing a deep gouge in one of the demon's front legs. While the demon hissed in pain, it gave Inuyasha the time to attack.
"Wind Scar!" Inuyasha roared sending a mass of destructive energy at the demon.
As the attack drew near its target, an arrow surrounded by a pink aura shot past Inuyasha and merged with his attack to strike a killing blow for the cat demon. The attack tore the demon into tiny chunks and a small shard of the jewel flew out of it's forehead to land a couple feet away from Inuyasha and Kagome. Kagome quickly gathered the jewel shard, purifying it instantly, before heading over to Inuyasha who looked as if he was about to collapse. Kilala landed nearby and a worried Sango and Miroku got off to head over to Inuyasha. Shippo sat looking anxious on Miroku's shoulder.
"Inuyasha, are you okay? Did the demon poison you or something?" Miroku asked as Inuyasha dropped to his knees breathing raggedly.
"I don't know," Inuyasha answered, his vision getting blurry. He tried blinking a few times to get his vision cleared. It didn't work and he fell down to all fours.
"Inuyasha?" Kagome said softly, a concerned expression on her face as she kneeled down and placed her hand lightly on his back.
"I think we should bandage up his arm then take him to Kaede's hut," Sango suggested.
"Good idea," Miroku said before turning back to Inuyasha, "Inuyasha, can you sit up?"
Inuyasha was worried. He had been bitten before, he'd even been poisoned before, but it never felt this awful. He felt like his whole body was on fire and he would have blacked out already if Kagome wasn't there. Despite the pain, he had to stay conscious so that Kagome wouldn't worry that much. He heard Miroku and pushed himself into a sitting position, the pain flared even worse when he moved and his muscles seemed to protest at each tiny movement. His mind grew hazy and he vaguely noticed Miroku taking of his shirts while Kagome started to bandage his arm. He dug his claws into the ground to help himself withstand the excruciating pain that moving his arm had caused. The pain subsided a little and Inuyasha realized Kagome had finished bandaging him.
"Kilala," Sango called. Kilala immediately transformed, her fangs elongating and her body growing ten times her normal size.
Miroku and Sango grabbed Inuyasha and place him on Kilala. Kagome got on behind him to make sure he didn't fall off. Kaede's village wasn't too far from where they were, so they took off at a run to get there quickly.
Inuyasha's eyes fluttered open to see Kagome smiling softly at him. There was no more pain. He felt perfectly fine, except something felt off and he couldn't put his finger on what it was.
"How are you feeling," Kagome asked as she took a damp cloth off of Inuyasha's forehead.
"Fine," Inuyasha replied pushing himself into a sitting position.
Inuyasha's shirts were still off and he could only see a little blood soaked into the bandages. Good, he thought, it's healing fast. He slipped his shirts back on as Kaede walked in followed by Miroku and Sango.
"Hey Inuyasha, you don't look too upset," Miroku noted looking surprised. Sango also seemed to be shocked; she had thought Inuyasha would have exploded for sure. Kaede went over to the fire and started to get dinner ready, realizing already why Inuyasha was not upset.
"Upset about what?" Inuyasha asked suspiciously looking at everybody in the room. Kaede wasn't paying attention as far as Inuyasha could tell, Miroku and Sango were looking at him, speechless to say anything, and Kagome was looking him in the eye with a sympathetic face.
"Inuyasha," Kagome started slowly.
"Spit it out!" Inuyasha yelled, growing increasingly impatient with them all. He saw Kagome flinch at his tone, but damn it, what weren't they telling him!
"The demon cat that bit you had a…special ability. The bite took away your demonic power," Kagome didn't know how to comfort him in this situation, so she just sat there looking down at her lap, awaiting his reaction.
Inuyasha couldn't believe it. He looked down at his hands, now clawless, then took a few strands of hair and looked at them. Definitely not silver. Everything clicked into place then, that is what had been off. His senses were dulled and he didn't even realize it. This couldn't be happening, but he had evidence right in front of him that it was.
"WHAT?! For how long?" Inuyasha roared.
"I believe all will be well with ye in a mere week," Kaede calmly informed the fuming half demon.
"A WEEK! I have to stay in hiding for a whole week!" Inuyasha didn't know how to contain himself. He could not sit around doing nothing for a whole week!
"I knew you'd feel that way Inuyasha, so I have the perfect plan," Kagome told him clasping her hands together in excitement, "You can come home with me. That way I can visit my family, I could also go shopping, and you don't have to worry about any attacking demons, plus you don't have to wear that red hat!"
Inuyasha thought about it for a minute, it would be nice to spend some time with Kagome away from the prying eyes of Miroku, Sango, and Shippo, but he hated those whiny friends of hers. It might be better than staying in this hut for a week, but he couldn't give in so easily. If Miroku heard him say yes without a fight, he'd start saying perverted things and he did not need that right now. That left him one choice.
"No," Inuyasha said, crossing his arms.
"Come on Inuyasha, won't you do it for me?" Kagome pouted at him.
"I don't see why I should agree," Inuyasha relented a little. Damn, she looks so adorable when she pouts. It was hard not to give in right then, but he had to keep his pride.
"But, it'll be so much fun," Kagome explained pleading with her eyes.
"Keh," Inuyasha gave in. Everyone else just looked on the scene with amusement, knowing full well that Inuyasha would give in to Kagome. It was obvious that he loved her, but was just too stubborn to admit it.
"Yay!" Kagome yelled in delight.
"Did you tell him yet?" Shippo asked sticking his head in the hut. He had been playing with some of the village kids.
"Yes, he's going to go home with Kagome for the week," Sango told him.
"Couldn't say no to Kagome, huh Inuyasha?" Shippo smirked as he came in to stand next to Kagome.
"Why you," Inuyasha growled before grabbing Shippo by his tail and punching him on the head, "Just because I'm human right now doesn't mean I can't hit you"
"Inuyasha, be nice," Kagome chided, "and Shippo, stop provoking him."
"Yeah Shippo, be nice," Inuyasha grinned.
Kagome pointedly glared at Inuyasha before getting up and heading over to Miroku and Sango. Shippo stuck out his tongue at Inuyasha when Kagome's back was turned and Inuyasha being the mature person he is conked Shippo on the head again. Kagome was currently hugging everybody goodbye. Inuyasha growled when it was Miroku's turn, but Miroku would never think to do that to Kagome, she was like a sister to him.
"Ready Inuyasha?" Kagome questioned as she hoisted her yellow book bag off the ground and onto her shoulder.
"Keh," Inuyasha replied getting up to follow her.
They got to the well without much notice; most of the village men were out in the fields taking care of the crops. Inuyasha wrapped his arm around Kagome's waist and hopped into the well. The familiar sensation of falling and the blue light enveloped both of them as they passed through the time barrier and landed softly in the bottom of the well five-hundred years in the future. The rest of the night went by slowly. Kagome explained to her mom why Inuyasha was human, they ate dinner, and then the teens made their way up to Kagome's bedroom for the night.
"Do you have to go to that school place tomorrow?" Inuyasha asked as he leaned back against the wall. He hated when she went there because he got so bored without her, not to mention that stupid Hobo guy went there as well.
"Nope, it's spring break!" Kagome answered as she flipped off the lights and got into bed.
"Oh…Kagome, what's spring break?" Inuyasha questioned looking at her form snuggled under the blanket.
"Well, it's basically time off where I don't have to go to school for a whole week," Kagome explained as sleep started to wash over her. Fighting demons all the time could really take a lot out of you.
"Okay…goodnight Kagome," Inuyasha replied.
"Good…night…Inuyasha," Kagome managed to get out while she yawned before falling into a deep sleep. Inuyasha watched as she struggled to fight off a yawn so she could say goodnight before she ended up falling asleep. He chuckled and his eyes softened as he gazed at her.
"Sweet dreams Kagome," Inuyasha said softly before succumbing to sleep as well.
