I do not own Inuyasha or any of its characters. Don't sue me please.

Hello readers, it's one of your favorite ninja writers, ninjanervana. I haven't written an Inuyasha story in a long time and then I realized this is one part that I neglected in all of my stories so if you read all of my stories you'll see it fit into the timeline. Hope you all enjoy it and please review it for me.


Kagome yawned softly, snuggling closer to the warmth that seemed to envelope her. She wrapped her arms around Inuyasha's body, her head resting against his muscled chest as he slept on. Normally he would have woken up the moment he felt Kagome move, but the past few nights had left him utterly drained.

Kagome and Inuyasha had gone to slay a demon in a village about a day's travel from Kaede's village. It hadn't been a difficult journey there, sticking to the main roads. Kagome enjoyed the time she and Inuyasha spent traveling alone; it reminded her of when they had first began searching for the Shikon No Tama shards. Plus being able to kiss Inuyasha every time they stopped made the traveling infinitely better. She was amazed by how much their relationship had changed over the years: from two people who could barely tolerate each other, to unwilling friends, then happy traveling companions, then best friends and now they were in love and happily mated. She never thought this would happen in a million years.

The village they arrived at was being ravaged at night by a tiger youkai that dwelled in the forest outside the village during the day. Inuyasha and Kagome set off into the forest; confident they could handle it easily. And they could have handled it easily…. if it had been one tiger youkai. The couple ended up finding an entire pride of tiger youkais, outnumbering them eight-to-two. The battle had left them victorious, but battered and injured, Inuyasha being the worst of the pair as he had constantly tried to protect Kagome. They managed to make their way back to the headman's hut by nightfall and Kagome bandaged Inuyasha before they fell into a long night of lovemaking. There were a lot of close calls in the forest and nearly losing the person you loved more than life itself made you want to be as close as possible to them. Inuyasha and Kagome's quiet noises lasted until early the next morning when the sun began to brighten the horizon.

Kagome shifted around in Inuyasha's arms, kissing his neck gently.

"Morning," he said sleepily, burying his nose in her hair as he breathed in deeply. He knew no matter how many times he woke up to Kagome, her scent would always be absolutely intoxicating to him. It made his mouth water and his blood heat, his eyes flashing red quickly before relaxing into its hanyou gold.

"I thought you were going to sleep longer," she said stroking his ear gently with her fingertips. She gasped softly as she felt his claws gently scratch down her bare back, resting on her hips.

"I need you," he replied, kissing her slowly. He pulled back for a moment, looking into her eyes. Jagged purple scars appeared under Inuyasha's eyes though they remained gold. "Need mate," he said, a deep growl coming from his chest. Kagome smiled at him, pulling his face back to hers as she threaded her fingers through his hair. After all, she couldn't refuse him.

Kagome hummed happily as she cleaned up the hut, picking up random articles of clothing that littered the floor. She felt something crunch as she stepped on one of her skirts, causing her to bend down to investigate. She gasped, her eyes widening as she picked up the round pink plastic. 'My birth control!' she thought frantically. She had been slightly worried when they had arrived at the ravaged village and realized she had forgotten it at home; she thought she and Inuyasha wouldn't even have time for love making, why worry. That was nearly five days ago. 'I've missed three days of birth control,' she thought sinking to the floor. 'What if I'm pregnant?' She felt tears pool at the corner of her eyes as panic began to set in. 'What if I'm pregnant and Inuyasha doesn't want a baby? Oh my god this is a disaster.'
