Epilogue:

Sango sat silent in her room, her hand clenched around a small plastic stick Kagome had given to her. Breathing heavily, she stared down at the white tip of the stick, her heart racing in her chest. She licked her lip nervously, her eyes trailing to the discarded cardboard package beside her.

She couldn't figure out why she was so nervous.. Her and Miroku had been married for over a year now, what could happen? Though this was not a light matter, this was would change their entire relationship, the result would decide where the future would take them. But is this what he truly wanted? No. Miroku wouldn't abandon her. He loved her. But.

She shook her head vigorously, her eyes burning in on the circluar mark on the stick. Slowly but surely, as if by magic, a small cross appeared. Sango's heart jumped into her throat, her hands trembling uncontrollably. Snatching up the box with her other hand, she read what the cross had meant. As she lowered the box to the ground, placing the stick on top, her mind raced.

She needed to find Miroku, as soon as possible. She jumped to her feet, she cringed slightly as her stomach ached. Hurrying toward the door, her eyes darted around as she ran out into the street.

She hurried to the place she knew him to be, quickly finding him at the temple talking to Keade.

Sango neared slowly, her heart thumping a thousand beats a minute as her eyes moved over her husband's back. He turned to her slowly, a smile appearing on his face as Sango shakily returned one of her own. She stopped before him, watching silently as his hands moved around her, holding her tightly to him. His eyes turned from joy to concern as he stared down at her panic stricken face.

"What is it"? He whispered, his hand gently brushing away her hair as she shook her head.

"Can we speak in private"? She whispered as Miroku nodded, waving goodbye to Keade as he took Sango's hand in his.

The two walked away slowly, taking up a seat beside the trees. Miroku watched Sango carefully, as her eyes shifted around them.

"What is it"?

Sango closed her eyes, collecting her strength quickly before speaking. "I'm pregnant Miroku". She blurted out, cringing as he remained silent.

"Are you certain"?

Sango nodded slowly, her eyes turning to him fearfully.

Miroku paused a moment, before his lips curled back, a wide grin appearing on his face. "That's wonderful!" He said happily embracing her as Sango jumped.

Wrapping her arms around his neck, she breathed a sigh of relief as she closed her eyes. "Good. I'll tell Kagome soon". She whispered into his hair as Miroku lifted her from the rock, placing her carefully on his lap.

Sango stared into his eyes, marvelling at the wonder and sheer beauty they possessed. "You will be an amazing father". She said softly as Miroku leaned forward, kissing her lightly.

"It's all I ever wanted. A beautiful tennyo like you bearing my child". Miroku smirked as he leaned his head into the nape of her neck.
