And finally, the long awaited end to Regaining Her Innocence! Let me just say that I hate ending fics. I always hesitate right before posting the last chapter and go crazy because I think the ending is stupid or sob over another ending.
Thanks to loveless an the living fantasy, KiraraGoesMeow, YumiBelle and CheckYesJuliet08 for reviewing the last chapter!

Miroku was leaning slightly on Sango. She made sure that she supported his right side as Dr. Terada instructed her to do. Today, Miroku was being discharged from the hospital and neither of them could be any happier. He was feeling restless in the hospital. The only thing that made it better was seeing Sango. Ever since he'd confessed to her, things were a hell a lot better in his life.
Sango was signing all of the paper work when the receptionist batted her eyelashes at Miroku. He didn't seem to mind at all. In fact, he rather enjoyed the receptionist's attention. Sango however, yanked him away from the counter as soon as she was done with the paper work. As soon as they were outside, he'd planned on teasing her a little and asking if she was jealous of the attention he'd gotten when she suddenly kissed him. Not that he minded, it was just so sudden. She took his face in her hands and kissed him with as much passion as she could. When she pulled away, he was smirking.
"What was that for?" he asked.
She looked at him seriously. "You're mine," she said firmly. "Remember that."
"Ah, how could I forget my lovely Sango?" he asked. His violet eyes were twinkling at her and she knew that he was being serious as well. Just in his own light hearted way. She knew that he'd never cheat on her, but she didn't like how he kept catching other women's eyes.
"OI! You both can be lovey-dovey later!" shouted a gruff voice.
They both squinted to see Inuyasha leaning against his red car. He looked annoyed for some reason. Then it was clear. Kouga was nearby and it looked like he and Inuyasha were having a shouting match. Sango and Miroku made their way to Inuyasha's car, prepared to break it up.
"What's going on, Yash?" asked Miroku.
"This, asshole, is being completely unreasonable," declared Kouga, getting into the car.
"What the hell are you talking about?" asked Sango. "Kouga, weren't you with your girlfriend?"
"Yes," he answered grumpily. "Until this dumbass decided to drag me along to get to guys."
"Gee, I'm feeling the love here," huffed Miroku.
"I didn't mean it like that and you know it," he snapped. "Inuyasha decided to start a fucking shouting match all the way here for god know's why."
Inuyasha threw him a dirty look. "Look, bastard, I am not leaving you alone with Kagome. It ain't happenin'."
"I. HAVE. A. GIRLFRIEND!" shouted Kouga. "I am not going to dump her for Kagome who is obviously with you!"
"How is Miki?" asked Miroku. "I hear that she's a pretty pleasant person to be around."
Inuyasha slipped the keys into the ignition. "She's a hell a lot better than Kouga's last girlfriend."
"Oh because all of your past girlfriends were saints!" shouted Kouga. "Do you want me to give you examples?"
Sango rubbed her temple in annoyance. She rested her head on Miroku's shoulder and closed her eyes. He instinctively wrapped his arms around her and kissed the top of her head. "What's wrong?"
"Inuyasha and Kouga are being obnoxious," she said loudly.
He laughed as the two demons continued to go at each other. "I doubt they can hear you, what with their arguing."
The rest of the car ride was a rather loud one. Inuyasha and Kouga arguing with each other until Sango yelled at both of them, threatening to make having children impossible for the both of them. The three guys gulped. Kouga glanced at Sango and quickly turned around, keeping his gaze fixed out the window. Inuyasha silently drove back to the house while Miroku prayed that she'd never do something like that to him. When they finally got home, Sango threw the car door open and ran out as fast as she could. Inuyasha and Kouga stared at her.
"You know, you guys are obnoxious. I don't understand why you guys bring this upon yourself," Miroku said limping up the stairs.
Inuyasha and Kouga grumbled to themselves as they followed Miroku up the stairs. Miroku pushed the door open and found Kagome and Sango talking to a girl with dark wavy hair and violet eyes. She looked up at the guys and smiled before rising. "You must be Miroku. How're you feeling?"
He liked her attitude and the way she carried herself. He could tell that she was kind-hearted. He had to admit, he privately agreed with Inuyasha. Kouga's new girlfriend seemed a lot nicer than most of his previous girlfriends. "I'm fine. I take it you're the famous Miki I keep hearing about?"
She laughed as Kouga blushed furiously. "Mmhmm. Sango was just telling me of her…interesting car ride here."
Sango sighed. "Don't sugar coat it for them. They were being downright obnoxious."
"Can't really say that it surprises me," said Kagome. "Kouga and Inuyasha fight all the time. It's a wonder they haven't killed each other yet."
Miroku sat down beside Sango and rested his head on the armrest that was next to him. He closed his eyes and sighed. Everything is back to how it used to be, if not a little better. Kouga's not gonna whine about being the 'lone wolf' anymore. Sango's back to her happy self. We have a new member of our group of friends...
Sango ran her fingers though his dark hair. She was pretty happy with the way things turned out. In the end, she was with the man who'd always loved her. Her lips curved upward at the thought. She looked around her and saw that Inuyasha and Kouga were having another shouting match. She shook her head at the two and laughed when she saw Miki's expression. Kagome was trying to explain that this was a daily routine between the two demons.
Suddenly the phone rang. Curious, she looked at the caller ID. The area code was unfamiliar. She pressed talk. "Hello?"
Miroku sat up and glanced at her. "Who is it?"
Her eyes lit up. "Kohaku! Oh my god, how have you been?" She got up and walked over to her balcony. Staying in the living room was no longer an option due to the escalating fight. He smiled when he saw how her face lit up. He leaned back and smiled in contentment. Sango was happy. Inuyasha and Kouga are fighting. Kagome attempted to mediate the fight. Miki was trying to make sense of all of this and help Kagome. Yup. Everything was back to normal.
*tear* My long and tragic fic is officially over. I'm kinda sad to see it go. It's like my baby now. *sigh* But it had to be done.
A special thanks to loveless an the living fantasy and KiraraGoesMeow for reviewing every chapter since this fic was started. Much love to both of you and hope to hear from you both!
