A/N: OMG! LOL You guys can really make a writer..um…write! LOL After reading all the reviews that said… "please, please, please continue!" even after a year or more of not updating, I have decided to continue. Seriously, how are you still finding this story since it's been so long since the last update? I am very touched that you guys like my writing so much, very touched!
However it's been a long time since I've written on this story as you well know so I am not the same person I was in writing it back then, maybe the tone will change a little, but it will still be written from the heart. Thanks for your loyalty and I hope you enjoy this chapter. I will try to update as regularly as possible.
Kagome felt like someone had run over her with a truck, backed up, and ran her over again. She was exhausted; the only other time her body had felt like this was when Inuyasha had made her his life mate. And, it was the first time she'd known about his demon. Inuyasha had told her his demon had been there with him when he mated with her. She'd seen a glimpse of it during that time when Inuyasha's eyes began to glow, but she'd forgotten about it until now. Yes, she'd known about his demon, but what he had failed to tell her was that the demon could completely take over his body.
She looked around the room. Inuyasha wasn't in it, but she felt him pacing around in the living room, deep in thought. The windows were fogged and the room was burning up. Only one thing could have caused this, the body heat from a demon making love to her or more like ravishing her. She could still feel him, he'd left his imprint on her body, and not one inch of her body had been left untouched by it. The demon had taken over Inuyasha's body and had possessed hers also, without her permission. She was confused. She shouldn't have enjoyed it, but she had. She should have been outraged, but she was totally relaxed.
She got up and opened the windows to let some fresh air in the room.
"You're awake," Inuyasha stood in the doorway watching her cautiously. He was afraid of how Kagome would react to him now that she found out his secret. "Kagome…are you okay?"
She stood by the window with a sheet wrapped around her naked body and glared at him. "Does it look like I'm okay? Your demon attacked me! Why didn't you tell me it could take control of you like that?"
"I was…I didn't know if you would still want me if you knew what it could do," Inuyasha admitted. "I told you I was half human and half youkai and you accepted it so easily, but I never wanted you to find out about him like this. He is the youkai that dwells inside of me and he is a true demon. He can possess me whenever he chooses and I wouldn't be able to stop him."
Inuyasha ran across the room and pulled her into his arms, holding her tightly. He buried his face in her long hair. "I'm so sorry, Kagome. I didn't mean for you to meet him this way. He must have terrified you. I'd kick his ass if I knew how for attacking you the way he did. He was so rough with you. Did he hurt you, baby?" He pulled away to stare into her brown eyes with concern.
"No," Kagome mumbled. She couldn't be mad at him, not after what she'd put him through last night. "He didn't hurt me; he frightened me and brought me unimaginable pleasure, but he didn't hurt me."
Inuyasha frowned. "What are you saying? Is he better than me? Do you like it rough? Cause I can be rough!"
Kagome stared at him as if he was crazy. "I can't believe you would even ask me that! None of this should have happened in the first place! You should have told me about him, Inuyasha. One of the things I value about our relationship is our honesty. Do you really think I wouldn't have accepted you if you had told me what he was capable of? I'm a part of you for goodness sake, we share one soul!" She grabbed her hair and showed him the white locks. "Hello? Your hair!"
Inuyasha sighed. "I'm an idiot…"
"I'm yours Inuyasha, forever…no matter what you are or what happens to you. I belong to you, both of you."
A glint of red sparked in Inuyasha's golden eyes. He grinned showing his fangs and started to move to her neck, but Kagome ran away from him.
"You don't have to bite me just because you're happy over what I said. I swear you find every excuse to mark me and show your possession, as if this," she pointed to his symbol on her forehead, "isn't enough! I told you I'm yours, stop with the biting!"
"It wasn't me!" Inuyasha said and then grinned. "Well, I guess I did go along with him on that one…heh…"
Kagome threw a pillow at him. "I'm going to take a very long bath and you better not disturb me."
"Aww…come on," Inuyasha pouted as he followed her to the bathroom.
"I've had enough of both of you today!" Kagome slammed the door in his face.
"Well, I guess that went better than I thought," Inuyasha mumbled.
"He did what?!" Rin yelled in complete shocked.
Kagome decided to have lunch with her friends at their favorite spot to get away from Inuyasha's constantly following her around the apartment. He wanted her again. He always wanted her. If it was up to him, they would spend the rest of their lives making love and nothing else. Youkai sex drives were amazing and exhausting.
"I'm sorry, Kagome, but that's sexy, a complete turn on," Sango said. "I love it when Miroku roughs me up a little."
"Roughs you up?" Kagome repeated.
Rin giggled. "Sesshoumaru gets that way too, he handcuffed me to the bed and had his way with me."
"What?" Kagome shook her head. "They're crazy! Our men are crazy. We're stuck with a bunch of crazy, psychotic youkai!"
Sango and Rin laughed.
"I believe you're right," Sango agreed. "Each of them gets a little psychotic when it comes to us."
"Remember when Miroku tried to suck all the male students into oblivion?" Kagome pointed out. "And both Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha didn't even try to stop him until we interfered. I mean, let's face it, it may be funny at times, but we are with some very dangerous youkai."
"Oh Kagome, stop being so serious, they would never hurt us," Sango said.
"It's not us I'm worried about. It's this entire campus. It's wherever we go. Our mates are walking livewires, anything concerning us might set them off."
"You're right, Kagome," Rin said becoming serious. "I was just thinking about that the other day. Sesshoumaru was willing to let a student die because he posed a threat to me when he summoned a demon on campus. He had no sympathy for the suffering human whatsoever. His coldness scares me sometimes."
Sango shrugged. "Humans are food, nothing else."
Rin and Kagome stared at her, stunned by her remark.
"Sango, what is happening to you? Did you completely lose your humanity when you mated with Miroku? You are still half human, like the rest of us."
"I know I've changed," Sango sighed. "I battle with that knowledge almost every day. The girl I used to be has been taken over by the succubus inside of me. It's very hard for me to relate to humans when I feed off of them. It's like trying to relate to a piece of juicy steak. All you can think of is how good it's going to taste once you bite into it, not the cow that died."
She had a point, Kagome thought. She gave her a comforting smile and patted her hand. "It must be hard for you trying to control your instincts."
"You have no idea," Sango shook her head causing her ponytail to swing. "Miroku doesn't understand. How can he when was born an incubus? But the transitioning is hard for me. I don't always want to be this way, a predator. I will have to learn to control my urges sooner or later."
"I never knew you felt that way, Sango," Rin said.
"And I know it's not just me," Sango said. "I'm sure it's hard for you and Kagome too, going through the changes. In a way, we've all lost a part of ourselves when we mated with them, that part we lost is what they took over, the powers they gave us, the changes in our body that came from them. None of us will ever be the human girls we were before we mated."
"But do we miss it, do we regret it?" Kagome asked as she looked at Rin and Sango.
The girls smiled at each other. "No!" They said at the same time.
"Still, we are youkai mates and not just any youkai, but to three of the most dangerous, violent ones on campus. I think the importance of being a youkai's mate is being responsible for our actions. We can stop our own irresponsible behavior and try to be a little more conscious in what we do. They react so badly because we put ourselves in unnecessary danger, like Rin with the worm event…yuck, Rin, I still can't believe you touched that vile creature and me running off to a rave that I didn't know anything about and nearly getting killed. We have to stop doing stuff like that in order to for them to stop going so psychotic and then maybe they will tone down a little."
"I get what you're saying," Sango said.
Rin nodded. "I understand too. It's just that when I'm bad, Sesshoumaru likes to punish me and I love being punished."
Kagome and Sango stared at Rin.
"What?" she asked looking at both of them. "Oh come on! You know you like it! I'm the only one brave enough to admit it!"
"She never seems to stop surprising me," Sango said. "Every time I look at her, I just see a cute, innocent, little girl until she says something like this with that same cute, innocent voice."
"Hey, I'm not cute or innocent. I got fangs. I'll bite you!" Rin hissed angrily and showed her fangs.
"The kitten has claws," Sango giggled.
"Stop making fun of me!" Rin told her. "I am not the same Rin you once knew remember. I will BITE you!"
Kagome burst out laughing. She couldn't help herself.
"You speak as if you can change who we are by acting responsible," Sesshoumaru suddenly appeared along with Miroku and Inuyasha scaring the crap out of all the girls. "Although we would appreciate you keeping yourselves out of danger for our sakes and the sake of this campus, we cannot change who and what we are. We are youkai. It is out nature to be "psychotic" when it comes to our mates. I believe you fail to understand," Sesshoumaru spoke to them, but caressed a long sharp claw under Rin's delicate chin, " that you…simply existing… puts the entire world in danger."
Kagome eyes widen. Only Sesshoumaru could make a statement that sent shivers down her spine, sound romantic.
"Well said, Sesshoumaru, real and to the point," Inuyasha grinned.
"Why are you here?" Kagome looked at him in annoyance. "Can we girls have a moment of privacy without you guys listening in on us all the time? Don't you have anything better to do?"
Inuyasha and Miroku looked at each other. "I don't have anything better to do, how about you Miroku?"
Miroku shrugged. "Nope, not a damn thing…"
"Oh my god!" Kagome yelled highly annoyed.
Miroku laughed. "Kagome, I know you are still learning about us, all of you are and we know it's hard. We may come off as dominating, overbearing…"
"Psychos," Inuyasha added liking that word.
"But we are mated youkai, we cannot act as normal humans to you. Our actions are always instinctual and we do not question or try to control it because we cannot be something we are not. For example, we cannot always give you the time you need to yourselves because our protective instincts are always on full alert and we do get a little nervous when you are away from us for more than two hours. Just because we are connected to you mentally, doesn't mean we can stop being physically close to you for long amounts of time. We are possessive, obsessive, and very sexual men who love our mates very much. Sorry, you will just have to find a way to live with our craziness."
"Kagome do you really want to know what the importance of being a youkai's mate is?" Inuyasha asked scooping Kagome playfully in his arms and swinging her around causing her to squeal and hold on to him.
"Stop it you crazy, youkai," she laughed.
"Half youkai," Sesshoumaru corrected her teasingly.
"Shut it, you!" Inuyasha told him in good humor. "The importance of being a youkai's mate is letting us take care of you."
"What?" Kagome asked.
"Letting us make you happy, letting us care for your health, and letting us love you and most of all letting us protect you, that is your job, Kagome."
Kagome blushed. His words were quite humbling and beautiful. "But that doesn't sound like much on our part, what do we contribute to this relationship, what do we give in return?"
"You simply…exist…" Sesshoumaru said again.
"I think I'm going to cry," Rin said.
"Wow," Sango said mesmerized.
Kagome pulled Inuyasha towards her and kissed him.
