Chapter Four: Question, Answers, and Angels
The night wore on as the girls and Jaken slept. Though he didn't need sleep he felt calm. Leaning his head back against the sturdy pine behind him he let his aura drift over the area feeling out any threats against his small pack. Satisfied that all predators that had been in the surroundings had been duly warned that if they hunted his pack they would meet their end swiftly, he let a light slumber drift over him, though his senses were on high alert.
As the stoic lord drifted into slumber, the small pups aura gave a plus. Slowly like a heart beat it began as it flowed from her body swirling above her brushing the blankets around it as it slowly took form. A ghostly blue-white hand drifted over the small pups bangs, and then Rin`s, bringing a grin to both girls faces. Slowly the apparition stood revealing the form of a woman. Standing tall looked like a goddess from the heavens. Her body looked like it was shaped lovingly into the form of high but heavy breasts, small tucked in waist, rounded hips and sturdy strong thighs. A form made for birthing, and taking care of young while still inciting the males to come to her. Long hair spilt down her shoulders and around her body covering its nakedness to her knees like curling like waves lapping at the oceans shore. Her small feminine feet bare the slivery blue figure stepped around the sleeping forms towards the slumbering form of the youkai lord. Patting the awoken dragons on the head as they watched her in awe as she passed to lean down infront of the male.
Small delicate fingers and hands reached out and cradled his face as the wind picked up around them whipping their hair into a frenzy of silvery and moonlight locks. Leaning closer the figure suddenly swirled up into itself and shot into the sleeping lord leaving no trance of it behind for now.
Tall lush green grass billowed around his legs out into a sea of emerald that spiraled down the hills into a thriving forest, as Sesshomaru walked towards an unknown destination. He knew this was a dream, for the smells were muted as were the sounds. As well as the fact that he knew he had been with his wards, retainer and dragon only moments before.
"Sesshomaru..." His name was whispered on the wind as it whipped his hair and silken clothing around him. It called to him in a voice that was like bells but as if the ocean breeze soothed its clear sound, spinning it into a soft but bright sound that didn't inflict pain upon his sensitive hearing.
"Sesshomaru..." It came again in the direction of the forest, weaving out from the trees, beckoning him to the creature that called him. Turning towards the only sound that wasn't muted he darted forward, something inside him pushing him forward at a pace that he didn't know he possessed. Trees whipped by him in a blur of greens and browns as he heard his name called once again on the wind.
Breaking through the tree line he stopped dead in his tracks as a quiet awe took over him. In the middle of the clearing was a large pond fend by a waterfall that fell gently into the pool. The crystal clear water churned up a fine mist that spread through the clearing and clung to and dripped from the dark green largely leafed plants that thrived along the pools edge. A large willow reached its thin arms out over the water, its long tenderals sweeping across the far corner by the falls themselves casting shade on only a small portion of the water.
Though the surroundings were idyllic in their setting what took his breath was the tenshi hip deep in the water. The sun seemed to cling to the long waves of jet that swirled and floated in the clear aqua fanning out around her a soft sheen of indigo blue lighting it softly. Pale moon kissed skin was revealed in small flashes as she waded deeper before turning to look at him over her dainty shoulder. Softly pointed ears peeked between locks of obsidian. Large compassionate but sad sapphire eyes looked at him, as she reached back with a single hand, giving him glimpses of full round breasts and a tight flat stomach. Peach lips parted silently as she closed her eyes, dark midnight lashes fanning across her cheeks as if in pain. As they opened to reveal the pained, sad, but still loving blue orbs the sound came once again, pouring as if honeyed from her lips to slip and curl in his mind.
"Lord Sesshomaru." Her voice was soft, like the trickling of water over smooth rocks with the wind wrapping it way through the trees. Soothing in its tranquility, but saddening in its tone. An tenshi had descended upon him and he stood abash. "You must help me. Please my lord."
His cold heart tore at this celestial being being in trouble. Nodding his head slowly he stepped forward his hand reaching for hers. His very soul being drawn to the enchanting creature before him, and he didn't care to stop it. Purity sang from every inch of her despite her nudity, and hope as well as love seemed to glow around her.
"Tenshi, have you come to torment this Sesshomaru with visions?" He spoke low, his voice silken velvet as it rumbled from his chest. A blush charmingly stained her cheeks as her arms colapsed in on her covering her chest from him, her head turning in embaressment. A chuckle rumbled from the inu lord as he stepped closer. It was HIS dream after all. "What do you require of this one, little one?"
With that her face turned back to him, hope glimmering in her innocent eyes. Again his soul twisted and called for her touch.
"I need you to release me." At this he bulked. Was this a demon who invaded his considerable mind to lure him into giving up the lives of his people. Seeing apprehension flash through his sunlight eyes she spun to him, forgetting about her attire, or the lack of. Reaching out to him she grabbed his hand pulling it to her heart as she peered beseechingly up at him.
"I am not trying to trick you my lord, please listen!" Her chest heaved, and a faint pale blush stained Sesshomaru's cheeks. Though he was no stranger to a woman`s body, this one seemed to make his blood and inner demon who was just a bundle of caged emotions, sing and calm all at once. Nodding his head slowly he sat at the edge of the pool as she sat in the water, her hair covering her breasts from him in a curtain of night, before fanning out around her as the water teased it softly.
"This Sesshomaru will listen." A smile that shamed the sunlight that poured down onto their forms beamed from her face. Leaning closer to him, inciting in her innocence, she began to speak.
"You know me my lord, i have come to you in this dream for help." A single eyebrow rose at this. But he let her continue. "You knew me as the human that traveled with your hanyou brother. You know me now as the small pup with in your care but I am truly neither anymore." With this information Sesshomaru was once again racing through thoughts. Had Kagome really come to him? Or was this really just a dream? "I created this place to talk to you in my true adult form, please you must help me. The dead priestess Kikyou called upon an old sorceress, whom cast a spell on me to age me rapidly as if I grew old in a matter of minutes instead of the years it was supposed to take. This would drain me of the power to fight as Kikyou took my soul and once again became one of the truly living. But she is not pure, nor did she know the extent of my powers for I am not truly her reincarnation. Transforming and having the mind you built and matured over the years leaves you open whispers from the spirits and of heaven. I was created to right a wrong here in the distant past, which effects my future, the time in which I was birthed. A part of Kikyous soul was placed in me to hide my true soul. And to help me in the journey to bring me to the time and experience i needed to be where I needed to be. And to whom I needed to be with to rewrite history and prevent tragedy." Looking at him she reached out a hand to cradle his cheek softly, which sent his blood once again soaring. "Have you noticed the decline of births through out the youkai clans? The increasing deaths of pregnant females and infants?" At his nod sadness enroched the cobolt of her eyes, making his heart squeeze. But this was his brothers female, not his. He could not feel this way. But a small voice in the back of his mind remeinded him that he had decided to keep her, away from the abusive half breed, for she was already pack. Shaking the thought away he refocused on her and her story.
"I was transformed into a full inu-youkai because of my powers fighting back agianst the spell the witch cast. Inuyashas hand was in my hand when my transformation began." A small smile graced her lips as she looked up at him coyly from under her inky lashes. "Your family's blood is strong and it was enough for my powers to duplicate. Thus my being inu. I was sent to stop the decline of the youkai population and prevent the extinction that will come." At this his heart stopped. In the time that she came from, youkai were no more? His race had died out completely? Surely not, but then the look on her face and her scent was sincere. She had also said she was here to save them. Looking down at her he realised that she was asking for him to help her save his kind. She was going to fight for his people and was requesting his aid as heir to the West.
"What do you need this Sesshomaru to do onna?" He questioned, and her face once again lit up their surroundings as if they hadn't seen sunlight in years, but her smile had the effect of the moon as well. A peaceful, soft light shone from within her.
"Find a way to bring me back to my true age. I can not return to being human. This I know." A flash of sadness crossed her delicate features. "But I can once again become an adult. Please, watch over my smaller form, and help me to relcaim the lost years of my life so that I may save others." Her eyes, pleadingly, turned up to his own and he felt himself giving into her charms. What would it hurt to save the future of his kind? To allow himself and others to live to the time she claimed to be born into. "Hurry, I do not have much power left to speak to you with, the sun is rising and with it my power wanes. The sun is a male element, hot, and passionate. The moon holds more power for me, for it is the feminine to the suns masulinity. The full moon gave me the strength to come to you like this. But dawn nears..." She trailed off looking off into the distance.
"This Sesshomaru gives his word he will aid you, onna." And once again her smile robbed him of his breath and everything around him began to fade, he could feel himself waking. Her hands touched his face as her silvery blue power flaired around her turning her enitre body the same transulcent color, becoming a figure formed out of the power with none of the true coloring of the female who weilded it. Her lips found his in a soft, grazing kiss, and once again her power flaired around her shooting into his body. Pain flaired then settled into the stump of his arm. It was blinding.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~End of Dream Sequence~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Kagome's power flaired out around the clearing bathing it in clean pure healing light. It shone breifly before rushing back into the infantile body where it belonged leaving behind a sense of tranquility and love. But it left more than just a peaceful feeling, it left behind a healed demon lord. A demon lord with two arms instead of only one.
Well? Do you like it? I know its not as long but still, I felt it was important. I will happily read all your yummy reviews.
