Divine Rose A/N: I know it has been a long time since I updated anything. I had hoped to update one of my fics soon, but I just couldn't get myself in the mood. So, I hope this new one will help me get in the mood to finish my others. Thank you all who have supported my stories. I am sorry to have not updated them in so long.
This one is based on one of, if not my fave movie, the 1930's film Bringing Up Baby starring Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn. It's a comedy and I will follow the plot mostly. I will change some things (ex: making it more romantic), add scenes, and take at least some of the beginning out. If you have seen this movie, you will know that Sessh is in for a wild ride. Haha
Summary: Sesshomaru is an uptight businessman, who is caught up in his work. He meets Rin who turns his life upside down. With the help of a "baby" that is...
Chapter 1: Meeting Rin
Sesshomaru Taisho was in his lavish office going over reports and charts. As usual he was caught up in his work. His life practically and really did revolve around his work. He was usually found in his office, or on a business trip. He was a young demon respectively and many wanted to be Mrs. Taisho, but he never paid them any mind. No. It was always about his work. He rarely thought of anything else.
Sesshomaru wore a white suit that he kept completely clean and pressed. It resembled everything in his life for it all was completely organized. His office was furnished in dark woods and the old world flare. He was traditional and "old fashioned" as some would call it. He was a very formal person and was close to nobody. Truly he was very cold.
The door opened to reveal what looked like a professor. He was a man by the name of Totosai, and he was immensely afraid of Sesshomaru. The man walked over to Sesshomaru, who was standing up now. The cold demon paid him no mind and just kept working.
Totosai: "So, you're going to try to impress Mr. Peabody at the party tonight?"
Sesshomaru: "There is no "try". I shall."
"Of course. But still, impressing the top attorney in all of New York will be rather hard, won't it."
Sesshomaru: "So? I am the top businessman in New York."
Totosai: "True. But I don't think you'll get anywhere if you glare at him."
Sesshomaru stopped what he was doing and glared at the professor, which caused him to gulp.
Sesshomaru: "His client, Mrs. Carter Random is essential to close this business deal. Without her, it'll never go through. Of course I'll make it happen."
Totosai: "I do believe that..."
Sesshomaru just glared at Totosai.
In the most luxurious hotel in New York, a grand party was being held. A young woman by the name of Rin Vance sat at the bar watching the bar tender place two empty glasses before him and take tree olives in his hand. She was a beautiful and a very free spirited person. She was completely innocent to the world's cruelties. Many men tried to get her for her money, but none caught her interest. Also, despite her money, they all ended up running away from her after being around her a few minutes...
Bartender: "See, I put an olive in this glass and in this one."
Rin watched with utmost focus as he did what he said.
Bartender: "Then I place the third olive on my hand."
Rin: "Oh, you are... I see what you are doing. Go on!"
The bartender slapped his hand and the olive flew up into the sky. The olive landed in his open mouth and he ate it.
Rin: "What a nice little trick. Let me try."
Rin took three olives in her hand.
Rin: "You throw one in here and then here. Then you do this..."
The bartender watched as Rin threw an olive in each glass and then place one on her hand. Then she slapped her hand like the bartender and the olive flew up. But it didn't land in her mouth, but on the floor.
Rin started to lean over for it, but Sesshomaru walked by and stepped on it before she could get it. He slipped on it, colliding into her! He pulled her down to the floor with him with her on top of him. Rin immediately propped herself up and looked at the man under her. She gasped and her eyes widened.
Rin: "I am so sorry!"
Sesshomaru glared at her.
Rin: "Are you alright."
Sesshomaru: "Yes. Just get off of me."
Rin hurried and scrambled off of Sesshomaru, who instantly got up.
Rin: "I'm sorry for that."
Sesshomaru: "What happened?"
Sesshomaru gave Rin a look. She was looking at him perfectly serious.
Rin: "It takes practice to do that."
Rin just smiled at Sesshomaru.
Rin: "No. To drop an olive."
Sesshomaru stared at Rin incredulously. Unwillingly to him, he took notice of her and his eyes roamed her body. She was a petite woman and he easily towered over her. She looked so delicate looking. Her black hair contrasted so nicely with her porcelain skin. She was very cute.
Sesshomaru mentally shook himself before he went further.
Sesshomaru: 'I shouldn't be thinking like that. Especially her.'
Rin: "Let me introduce myself. I am Rin Vance, and you are?"
Sesshomaru: "Sesshomaru Taisho. Excuse me, but I am in a hurry."
Rin, with an opened mouth, watched Sesshomaru walk away. She takes some of the olives and began practicing the trick. Missing every olive. She walked through the different rooms of hotel for the party. And not long after she entered, she saw Sesshomaru walked in behind her. Each times their eyes met, she would smile at him. Each time he would glare at her and walk away.
She watched him with a smile and at a point where she ran out of olives; she walked up to a table with a half-demon sitting at it. She started taking olives out as she watched Sesshomaru stand by a column, waiting for the man he was going to meet. The man at the table looked up at the Rin and gave her a strange look. Rin finally did the trick once.
Rin: "I did it!"
Man: "Won't you just take the olive dish?"
Rin looked at him and bent over for more.
Rin: "No, I'm alright."
The half-breed stood up and bowed.
Man: "I am Dr. Naraku Lehman."
Rin: "I'm Rin Vance. You can sit down."
Naraku sat down and looked at Rin.
Naraku: "I am a psychiatrist."
Rin: "Oh! Crazy people."
"We dislike the use of that word. All people act oddly and bizarre."
Naraku did a face and widened his eyes, but Rin missed it as she had looked over at Sesshomaru.
Rin: "Is that so?"
Rin sat down and looked at Naraku.
Rin: "May I ask your professional opinion of something?"
Naraku: "Go ahead."
"There's this man, who follows me around and glares at me."
"Follows you around and glares at you?"
"Is this young man your fiancée?"
Rin looked over at Sesshomaru.
Rin: "No. I never saw him before tonight. He just follows me around and glares at me."
Naraku: "The love impulse in men frequently reveals itself in terms of conflict. He has a fixation."
"Wait! That's it?"
"Well, without knowing anymore than I do of the situation, I would say he is extremely attracted to you."
"Really? Oh, thanks so much for your help!"
Rin shook the man hand. She subconsciously took the purse laying there and walked away to Sesshomaru.
Rin walked up to Sesshomaru, who stared at her.
Rin: "I know what you are. You are a fixation."
Sesshomaru: "A what?"
"You've been following me all night."
"Don't be absurd."
"But who is always behind whom?"
Sesshomaru couldn't say anything to that.
Rin: "The love impulse in men frequently reveals itself in terms of conflict."
Sesshomaru stared at Rin, who looked at him. She was completely serious.
Sesshomaru: "The what impulse?"
Rin: "The love impulse."
"I've had enough of this."
Rin then looked down at her purse and a look of confusion crossed her face. She looked up and then handed the purse to Sesshomaru.
Rin: "Hold this for me."
Rin walked off and walked by Naraku. He was trying the trick and missed. She leaned over as she passed.
At that time a woman walked up. She was obviously Naraku's wife.
Naraku: "There you are Kikyo."
Kikyo smiled at Naraku as he helped her to sit down.
Kikyo: "Sorry for the wait."
Naraku: "That's okay. I had an interesting conversation with a young lady, who does tricks with olives when she gets them."
Kikyo laughed and looked to her side. Her smile instantly fell.
Kikyo: "Where is my purse?"
Naraku: "I thought you had it with you."
"No, I left it here. Oh dear, my diamond pin was in it."
Naraku and Kikyo started looking all around for the purse.
Sesshomaru was staring at the purse with disdain. He almost sat the purse down, but Rin's face popped in his mind. He mentally sighed before walking off after her. He went to walk by Naraku's table, but was stopped by his wife.
Kikyo: "There it is. Thank you."
"That's my purse."
"There must be a mistake."
"No. It has my diamond pin in it."
"This belongs to someone else."
"No, it's mine."
Kikyo reached for the purse, but Sesshomaru kept is out of her reach. She immediately turned to her husband.
Kikyo: "Naraku, do something."
Naraku went up to Sesshomaru and started yelling at him.
Rin took a purse from the bartender that looked like the one she handed to Sesshomaru.
Rin: "Thank you."
Rin turned around and her eyes widened at the sight of Sesshomaru, Naraku, and Kikyo.
Rin walked to the group and Sesshomaru immediately saw her. He held up the purse for her to see.
Sesshomaru: "This is your purse, right?"
Rin held up her purse.
Rin: "No. This is my purse."
Naraku tried to take the purse from Sesshomaru, but he wouldn't let him.
Sesshomaru: "But you gave me this purse."
"I left my purse and must have picked up your wife's purse by mistake. And I gave the purse to him while I looked for my purse. Makes sense?"
"Yes... I mean, no."
Sesshomaru handed the purse to Naraku.
Sesshomaru: "And it never will as long as she is explaining it."
Sesshomaru then walked away with Naraku trying to follow. But Rin stopped him.
Rin: "You got your wife's purse. I got my purse. And Louie here is going to explain it all to you."
Rin pulled a waiter to the side, who clearly knew nothing about the whole ordeal to explain it to the couple. She then quickly took off after Sesshomaru, who was going down a flight of stairs.
Rin: "Hey! Hey!"
Sesshomaru, clearly annoyed, ignored Rin, and turned the corner to go down another flight of stairs. She grabbed his coat and there was a loud ripping sound. Sesshomaru immediately froze and Rin's eyes widened.
Rin: "You tore your coat."
Sesshomaru turned his glare on Rin and she started backing up.
Rin: "I didn't mean to do it. It was an accident. I didn't mean it."
Sesshomaru: "Rin, can you do something?"
Rin stopped walking and so did Sesshomaru. She smiled at him, clearly hopeful.
Rin: "A needle?"
Sesshomaru: "No. Just go away."
Rin face fell.
Rin: "Well, I was only trying to help."
Rin turned to walk away and the unknowingly her skirt was under Sesshomaru's foot. The back of it ripped off, revealing her back side. Sesshomaru's eyes widened and after a moment's hesitation he followed her.
Rin turned around.
Sesshomaru: "Something happened."
"If you had listened to me, then your coat wouldn't be ripped."
"That's not it."
Sesshomaru backed Rin to a column, while looking around. The girl looked around with confusion on her face.
Rin: "What are you doing?"
Sesshomaru: "Let's just leave."
"Now you want to go for a walk?"
Sesshomaru: 'Why am I helping her?'
Rin started to walk, but Sesshomaru pulled her back.
Sesshomaru: "Walk in front of me and very close."
Rin stared at Sesshomaru funny.
Sesshomaru: "Your skirt."
Rin eyes widened.
Rin: "You shouldn't criticize my dress!"
Rin started walking and felt the difference. She froze on the spot and waved her hand behind her backside. She looked at Sesshomaru with a face of fear.
Rin backed into the column and looked up at Sesshomaru.
Rin: "What shall we do?"
The demon got behind the girl and slid an arm around her waist. He pulled her as close as he could to him.
Rin: "Get behind me!"
Sesshomaru: "I am."
Sesshomaru mentally sighed.
Sesshomaru: 'What have come over me? I can't believe I'm helping a human girl...'
Sesshomaru: "Stay calm. Right foot forward."
The sound of Sesshomaru's deep voice calmed Rin down a little and she nodded. They began to start walking to the exit. Everybody looked at them and started to laugh.
Rin: "Don't leave me..."
Sesshomaru: "I won't."
At that moment an older man, who was none other than Mr. Peabody walked into the hotel. He stared wide-eyed in disbelief at Sesshomaru.
Sesshomaru didn't respond, but walked Rin out the door, in the most embarrassing way.
Divine Rose A/N: There it is. It'll get better soon. This is important for later.
