The girl had tried to kill him.

It all happened when the smiling, deceptively innocent chit had come offering for him to try this foreign beverage she called a 'chocolate shake.'

It was a strange name; the drink had resembled an unappetizing brown slop at first sight, but hadn't appeared as if it was shaking. Was something alive in there? Would one begin to convulse after consuming it? A swift glance at his happy ward revealed no such behavior, and what was this chocolate? He had never heard of it before.

And so, under the beaming, expectant expression of his temporary ally, the curious Taiyoukai had accepted the beverage, sniffing and tasting the drink before realizing that, as strange as the name was, the taste was pleasantly cold and sweet, a child's treat. Nothing threatening about it.

Kagome was ridiculously pleased when she had returned to an empty cup.

An hour later, though, the situation had changed drastically.

"I'm so sorry, Sesshoumaru-sama!!" A frantic Kagome called out, wringing her hands anxiously as a certain Lord of the Western Lands was busy being sick behind a bush. "Inuyasha could take chocolate, so I didn't think-"

"Inuyasha is a hanyou," the unwell Taiyoukai croaked embarrassingly before gritting his teeth and continuing. "His blood is diluted, unlike that of a full-blooded Inu youkai."

Kagome winced at the arctic tone, whereas the Inu hanyou in question snorted rudely.

"Keh. The Great Sesshoumaru, felled by a cup of chocolate shake. Who would have thought?"



Questions That I Would Like To Answer Before You Ask:

Before I am being lynched for this, Kagome is well aware that dogs cannot have chocolate. However, since Inuyasha can take it (and very well, too), she figured that Sesshoumaru should have no problem with chocolate as well, superpower demonic genetic makeup and all.

Well, it turns out that he is more dog than demon, much to her dismay.

Death by chocolate, eh?
