Kagome climbed out of the Bone Eaters Well, carrying her heavy yellow backpack with her, full of treats for her friends.

"So great to be back." Kagome said leaning against the Sacred Tree, closing her eyes.

Kagome sighed and opened her eyes, It took all her strength to hold back a scream when she saw Sesshomaru right in front of her.

Sesshomaru walked up to her and brushed his hand across her cheek.

Kagome blushed at his sudden touch. She was more suprised when Sesshomaru leaned in closer and captured her lips with his.

"I will take my leave farewell my miko." Sesshomaru said as he dissapeared into the shadows.

'He's actually kind of cute.'

Kagome giggled at her thought and made her way back to Kaede's.

She pushed back the mat, that served as the huts door.

"Kagome!" She smiled,when she heard the familiar shriek of the small kitsune.

"Hey you guys." Kagome looked around the hut. 'Thank god Inuyasha's not here.'

Kagome let out a small shriek when she felt a hand on her shoulder. She walked to where Sango was and turned around...it was Inuyasha.

"You reek of Sesshomaru. What happend?" He asked looking Kagome up and down checking for wounds.

"N...nothing he was...just passing by." Kagome hated lying, but in this case she had to. Kagome set Shippo down next to her.

Kagome brought a finger to her lips. 'Why do I feel so cold when he left?


Sesshomaru continued walking in Inuyasha's forest. 'I felt drawn to her...I don't know why, but I did.'Sesshomaru's thoughts were interrupted when he felt pressure on his leg. He looked down, only to see Rin hugging him tightly.

"Lord Sesshomaru, I missed you." Rin squealed.

"My Lord has returned." Sesshomaru rolled his eyes, as the puny green goblin tripped and fell.

"Jaken have you seen any signs of Naraku?" Sesshomaru demanded in his cold voice.

"No my lord I have not." Jaken answerd beads of sweat forming his face.

A small cloud appeared at Sesshomaru's feet.

"Jaken go back to the castle with Rin and Ah-Un."

"Yes My lord." Jaken fell once again, as he scrambled to fufill his master's wishes.

Sesshomaru flew off in the opposite direction, leaving Jaken in charge.

'Damn it!'


Kagome sighed, as images of Sesshomaru's kiss kept repalying in her mind.

"Kagome whats wrong?"

Kagome turned towards Miroku, who was looking at her with concerned eyes.

"Nothing."

She stood up and grabbed her bow and arrows, then walked towards the entrance, when Inuyasha blocked her way.

"Where do you think your going?" Inuyasha asked narrowing his eyes.

"Sit." She whispered

Inuyasha plunged into the ground.

Kagome stepped over him and started running as fast as she could go.

'Why did he kiss me? why?' Kagome thought.

She finally stopped running when she came to a river.

Only when she saw her reflection, did she realize that she was crying.

Kagome looked up into the sky.

Her eyes widened when she saw Sesshomaru coming towards her.

'No I don't want to see him!'

Kagome grabbed her arrows and ran.

She dropped to her knees when she felt arms wrap around her waist.

"Miko why do you run from me, do I frighten you?"

Kagome shook her head.

"No...it's just why did you kiss me?" Kagome twisted from his grip and stared into his golden pure eyes.

"That is none of your concern." Sesshomaru glared at Kagome.

"It is actually, you kiss me and then walk away." Kagome yelled

Sesshomaru's glare softend. He pulled something out of his pocket and handed it to Kagome.

"Rin has apparently developed miko powers and-

"Yes I love Rin and would do anything to help her." Kagome cut him off and smiled.

"Do not inturrupt me, I will acompany you.

Kagome and Sesshomaru walked in silence.

When they got to the hut, they wer'nt surpriesd to find the gang outside wepons ready.

"Sesshomaru what did you do to her?" Inuyasha growled.

Kagome stood in front of Sesshomaru.

"Inuyasha I'm going with him to help Rin, so move I need my backpack."

Everyone went silent at Kagome's words.

Kaede came out from the hut and handed Kagome her backpack.

"I wish ye luck child." Kaede kissed her forehead and went back inside.

Kagome slipped what was in her hand into Sesshomaru's so that she wouldn't lose it.

He seemed to understand and gave her a slight nod.

Kagome walked up and gave Sango, Miroku, Shippo, and Kilala a hug.

She looked at Inuyasha.

"I'll see you soon okay?" Kagome walked back over to Sesshomaru.

Inuyasha growled.

"I won't let you go Kagome."

Kagome turned towards Inuyasha.

"I'm leaving Inuyasha."

Inuyasha grabbed Kagome's wrist.

"Let go."

"If you leave then don't come back."

Kagome averted her gaze and stared at Sesshomaru.

"I have to help Rin...let go!"

Kagome shocked Inuyasha with spiritual power.

Sesshomaru was growing tired of them fighting. He walked over and kissed Kagome.

Kagome played along and moaned, then wrapped her arms around his neck.

Sesshomaru deepend the kiss, then pulled away.

"There I'm leaving, lets go Sesshomaru."

Once again a cloud formed beneath his feet.

Kagome shrieked and held on to Sesshomaru to keep from falling off.

They rose into the air.

"Inuyasha sit!"

Sesshmaru smirked when he saw Inuyasha plunge into the ground.

His expression saddend when he saw tears streaming down Kagome's face.

"What is wrong?"

"I lost my friends, he told me never to come back."

Sesshomaru pulled the crying miko into his arms.

"You should sleep it will take a while to get there."

Sesshomaru went back to his cold voice.

'You will pay for hurting her Inuyasha!'

Sesshomaru thought eyes glowing a faint red.
