This is not a fuzzy-ever-after tale. I don't generally write those. However, I wanted to do a modern tale that sat firmly in the boundries of what-could-happen if the traditional tales of Japan were true. If I get details of Japanese life wrong, please feel free to pm me. I do as much research as possible, but know of my fallibility. All chapters will be one hundred word drabbles.

This is a work of fanfiction. Inuyasha belongs to Rumiko Takahashi.

Kagome concealed her surprise at seeing the youkai again. If it hadn't been for it, she would have never noticed the other two men that had been shadowing her every move for the walk home. Things like this only happened in the Feudal Era! Why are they following me now? This was her time. No youkai, no conspiracies, no plots for world domination- that she was directly and knowingly involved in at least. I told Inuyasha I was safe enough… Sudden concern swamped her mind. Did someone notice him and trace him back to the shrine? Is my family safe?
