I do not own Inuyasha or any of its amazing characters, i just love the story


"Kagome," Inuyasha called as he followed her scent through the forest. 'Where did that wench go? She shouldn't be walking by herself; she's too vunerable right now,' he thought worriedly. Kagome's scent got stronger as he walked through the forest, realizing where she would be. Sitting beneath the God Tree. Or Inuyasha's tree as Kagome liked to call it. "Kagome what are you doing out here by yourself?" Inuyasha asked as she came into view.

Kagome looked up at him, smiling. "Sorry to worry you. Our pup was being fidgety so I thought a walk might calm him down for a bit."

"But you know how dangerous it is for you to be out on your own. What would have happened if a demon would have attacked?" he asked, sitting next to her.

"Then you would have come to rescue your mate and child. And I didn't come completely unprotected." She patted her bow and arrow lying next to her. "So I was perfectly safe. You know I wouldn't put our child in danger."

"Yes I know," Inuyasha sighed, standing up. "Are you ready to go visit your family?" he asked, picking her up and carrying her to the well.

"Yeah, I miss everyone. And I'm sure everyone is eager to see how the baby is doing."

"Your mother has probably chosen baby names by now," Inuyasha said, rolling his eyes as he jumped into the well.

"Let's hope that's all she's planned," Kagome laughed as they walked out of the shrine's well house. "You can put me down now Inuyasha."

"I don't want you to overwork yourself or anything. You need to take it easy; the pup is due in a month and you don't want him to come to soon."

"Or her," Kagome replied. "We're at the door, you can put me down now." Inuyasha reluctantly put down Kagome, gently setting her on her feet. "I'm home!" Kagome shouted as she opened the door.

"Kagome!" Sota said, running out of the living room. "Whoa you're huge."

"Nice to see you too Sota," Kagome said dryly.

"I missed you sis," he said, hugging her gently. "Hey Inuyasha."

"Hey kid," Inuyasha replied, putting his arm around Kagome's waist.

"Come in, everyone's in the kitchen," Sota said, leading them into the house. "Hey Momma, Kagome and Inuyasha are here."

"Kagome, Inuyasha it's so good to see you," Mrs. Higurashi said, leaving her pot on the stove to hug them both. "And how is my little grandchild doing?" she said softly, rubbing Kagome's stomach gently.

"He or she is as energetic as their father," Kagome laughed, settling into a chair.

"Hopefully they get their father's cute ears too," she replied, going back to her cooking.

"I hope so too actually," Kagome said, smiling at Inuyasha as he sat next to her. "Where's grandpa?"

"Oh he's visiting a friend in Osaka; he should be home in a few days. Are you guys hungry? I just finished cooking."

"Kagome's always hungry now, our pup has a big appetite," Inuyasha laughed. "Right pup?" Inuyasha asked, rubbing her stomach as he felt his child kick gently against his hand.
