Chapter 1

I slowly open my eyes up and look up at the ceiling, I look around the waiting room at everyone else. My Grandpa's condition just took a grave turn for the worse, the doctors are wondering if he will make it through the night. My Mother is in pieces along with all of us, except for Sesshoumaru who is holding it back.

I lean my head onto Sesshoumaru's shoulder, I close my eyes trying to block out all of the bad thoughts but it does not work. I feel the hot tears fall out of my eyes for the millionth time today. There is nothing to get to me to stop crying other then for my Grandfather to get better, but I know that it is not going to happen anytime soon.

"Mama." I hear a soft voice call.

I open my eyes and find Rin standing there with tears running out of her eyes. "Oh sweetly, come here." I say sadly.

I lift my head off Sesshoumaru's shoulder, I open my arms and she crawls up into my lap and settles her head against my chest. I wrap my arms around her and hold her to me, trying to comfort her as much as I can at the moment.

"Mama, please tell Rin that Grandpa is going to be okay." She says in a pleading voice.

I so much want to tell her that he will get better but I know I would be lieing to both her and myself if I did it. I lean down and kiss her forehead.

"Oh Rin honey, I know we all want him to get better right now but we just have to wait and see what happens." I say.

"But Rin wants him to get better right now."

"I know honey but things don't work that way."


I sadly smile down at her and lay my head down on top of hers. I hate seeing Rin like this, I wish I could take hers and Shippo's pain away and they could be as carefree as always.

I rock back and forth in the seat trying to calm her and maybe get her to take a small nap because none of us have slept very well since the news of my Grandpa. After a little bit I look down at her and find her sound asleep, I smile down at her sleeping face.

I pick her up and stand up, I walk over to the small couch and lay her down in it. I look in the chair next to her and find Shippo also sound asleep, hopefully they both will be able to get some sleep. I stand up and set back down in my couch, Sesshoumaru wraps his arm around my waist and pulls me close to him.

I lay my head down on his chest, he leans down and kisses the top of my head. I close my eyes, I am hopefully going to try and get some sleep, there is nothing else to do around here other then worry about my Grandpa and I have did enough of that. As if planned my breathing evens out and I am asleep in minutes.
