"We're in your time, Kagome," Inuyasha said, "And here, there aren't any demons, except for the ones in the house. You don't need protection here."
Kagome blinked, "Is that all you think you are to me, Inuyasha? A protector?" she asked.
"Well…" Inuyasha said.
Kagome placed her free hand on the half demon's face and turned it to look at her own face, "Inuyasha, you baka," she said smiling, "You were never my protector in the first place; you took up that job on your own," he let out a small 'keh', but she continued, "Inuyasha, you are not just my protector; you're one of the best friends I've ever had and…" she looked away blushing.
"And…" Inuyasha encouraged.
Kagome looked at him her cheeks still pink, "And…I love you," she said smiling, "I said it once and I'll say now. I love you as a half demon; you."
Inuyasha took her hand on his cheek into his free hand and pulled her towards him, "I ain't good with words," he said when their faces were close, "But, hopefully, this will say something," he kissed her then.
Kagome smiled as best she could while being kissed and kissed him back and placed her hand back on his cheek and his other hand went to her waist while their other hands were still intertwined. They broke away after a few minutes smiling at each other, "Yeah, that actually says a lot more than words," Kagome said, "You were trying to say 'I love you too', right?"
Inuyasha nodded and pulled her into a hug, "Yeah…" he said softly.
"Uh…Inuyasha…" Kagome said breaking away, "I think we just gave the whole house a show…"
Inuyasha turned then looked away blushing lightly, "Whoops…" he said.
The new couple entered the house hands still intertwined. Shippo jumped into Kagome's arms, causing the couple's hands to separate, "It's about time!" he yelled happily.
Kagome laughed and Inuyasha glared, "Come on you two," Kagome's mother said smiling, "Time to eat."
Shippo jumped down so Kagome and Inuyasha could get food. After Kagome and Inuyasha finished their dinner the sound of helicopters was heard. Ayame jolted awake, "What is this?" Koga yelled over the noise, "Some kind of attack."
Kagome ran to the window, "It's…the media?" Kagome asked.
"Is it dangerous?" Sango asked.
"Normally, no, but with what happened here…not too sure," Kagome said and opened the door only to be blinded by flashes of cameras, "Gah!"
Inuyasha was blinded, "What kind of attack is this!" he yelled.
Mitsuko started crying because of all the yelling of questions. Finally, Kagome's mother whistled really loud, "Nah!" Inuyasha, Shippo, Koga, and Ayame yelled holding their ears.
Sesshomaru looked uncomfortable with the noise, but hardly showed it like the other four, "Can we help you?" Kagome's mother asked, "And sorry," she added to the demons in the room with sensitive hearing.
"What happened here?" one reporter asked, "The whole world wants to know."
"And what are you?" another person asked Inuyasha, Koga, Ayame, Shippo, Kagura, Kanna, Jaken, and Sesshomaru.
"Are these real?" another asked reaching for Inuyasha's ears.
Inuyasha held the person's wrist before they could touch his ears, "Don't touch," he stated, "But yes, they are real."
"We'll explain," Kagome standing with the group from the past, "But, you may not believe us at first, but it's the whole truth."
Cameras turned to the rather small, but somewhat large group. Kagome took a deep breath and grabbed Inuyasha's hand in hers; "It all began 500 years ago with a man named Onigumo and a priestess named Kikyo…" she began.
~About an hour later…
"And now, Naraku is dead, Kagura and Kanna here are free, Miroku's curse is lifted, but they're all stuck in this time now," Kagome finished, "The demons here helped save all these people, who are the only survivors of Tokyo. They mean no harm to anyone here, if anything they want to protect them."
When Kagome finished the reporters were in complete and utter shock. It was quiet for a few minutes, "So…what are you going to do now?" a reporter asked, finally.
Kagome smiled, "We're going to live in the best way possible," she said squeezing Inuyasha's hand.
"Are you planning to move someplace else?" a reporter asked, "Both humans and…demons?"
Kagome looked at her friends then smiled at the reporters, "If people will send us supplies then you'd be surprised how fast we can rebuild Tokyo…with a little demon help of course," she said turning to her demon friends.
Shippo jumped into Kagome's arms smiling and Kagome smiled back, "There may still be some demons in this time that should be feared, but right now… these are the only demons we know about and they're our friends."
"I hope we answered all your questions," Sango said politely then tensed and twitched.
Everyone surrounding Sango and Miroku quickly took two steps away, "Perverted Monk!" Sango yelled slapping Miroku.
The reporters winced, but Kagome, Inuyasha, and Shippo laughed.
~Two years later…
Kagome woke up to the sun shining in her face. She blinked and slowly letting her eyes adjust. She sat up and turned to the sleeping half demon beside her. She yawned once before shaking Inuyasha. Inuyasha groaned and opened his eyes, "Morning," Kagome said smiling.
"How are you cheery in the morning again?" Inuyasha grumbled while sitting up.
Kagome shrugged and kissed his cheek, which woke him up. Kagome giggled, "Come on, everyone else is probably downstairs eating."
Inuyasha yawned, but followed Kagome out of the bed. As they reached the bottom of the stairs they saw Ayame and Koga chasing after, a now two year old, Mitsuko, who was laughing, "Mitsuko!" Koga yelled, "This is no time for games!"
"Pway!" Mitsuko yelled laughing, "Mama and dada pway!"
"Mama and dada want to eat!" Koga yelled still chase his adopted daughter around the living room until he ran into his wife, "Oof!"
Both Koga and Ayame fell to the ground, "Remind me…" Koga said rubbing his head, "Whose idea was it to adopt the pup?"
"Yours," Ayame said, rubbing her own head.
Mitsuko kept running until Inuyasha grabbed her, "Whoa, now," he said, "It's a little early for this don't you think?"
Mitsuko laughed and attached her hands to Inuyasha's ears, "Gah! Not the ears!" he yelled trying to pry the two year old off, but had no luck.
Kagome sighed, "Mitsuko, what have we said about grabbing Inuyasha's ears," Ayame said pulling her daughter off Inuyasha.
"Um…no like?" Mitsuko asked.
"Right, now let's go eat," Ayame said heading for the kitchen with Koga in tow.
Inuyasha rubbed his ears, "Where did her grip come from?" he asked.
Kagome shrugged and entered the kitchen where her mother, grandfather, brother, Miroku, a very pregnant Sango with twins, Kohaku, Jaken, Shippo, and Kanna were already seated at the very long table, "Morning!" Kagome's mother said happily.
"Sesshomaru and them not up yet?" Inuyasha asked as he sat down next to Miroku.
"Not yet," Sota said.
"Sesshomaru-sama!" Rin's voice came, "Kagura-sama! You two are so slow!"
"There they are," Shippo said smiling.
Rin came bouncing down the stairs with an emotionless Sesshomaru and a tired looking Kagura after her, "Why are kids so full of energy in the morning?" Kagura asked yawning.
"She's always been like that," Sesshomaru stated.
About a year ago, Sesshomaru and Kagura tied the knot and adopted Rin. Rin was already seated and eating her breakfast when Sesshomaru and Kagura sat down, "Mitsuko, don't play with your food," Ayame stated.
"Pway!" Mitsuko yelled laughing.
Koga drummed his fingers on the table, "I beginning to think that's the only word she knows," he stated.
"Well, look on the bright side!" Miroku said, "She knows how to speak Japanese and wolf."
Koga glared at the monk, "Very funny," he said, "Wait till your twins get this age."
"Oh yeah," Kagome said, "Sango, are you going to tell us the genders or you going to let us be surprised?"
"Well they're due in about a week right?" Sango asked, "So…we'll find out soon enough."
"Wait…a week!" Miroku shouted.
"Yeah…the doctor said that twins are usually born a little earlier than normal babies because…well, there are two," Sango said like it was obvious.
"Well, why wasn't I told?" Miroku yelled.
Sango sweat dropped, "I did tell you…" she said annoyed.
Miroku scratched his head, "Well, I don't remember," he said.
"Shocker," Sota said chuckling, "Your mind's been everywhere since you found out Sango was having twins."
Miroku blushed and continued eating, "Mama," Shippo asked turning to Kagome, "Can Kanna and I go to the park later?"
Kagome and Inuyasha had married barely a month after they confessed and after a week of begging (*cough* sits *cough*) Kagome had convinced him into adopting both Shippo and Kanna since they were close in age. Kagome thought about it, "I don't see why not," she said, "But take Rin with you, Sesshomaru and Kagura could use a break."
"And if Kohaku would go, you can take Mitsuko with you," Ayame said.
"Sure," Kohaku said.
"I'll go too," Sota said smiling.
"Yay!" Rin yelled hoping out of her chair, "Jaken-sama come too," she said grabbing the little green demon.
"Get dressed first," Sesshomaru stated tonelessly.
"Oh…" Rin ran back upstairs to change with Jaken being dragged.
Shippo, Kanna, Kohaku, and Sota with Mitsuko followed the overly hyper girl upstairs. All the parents of said kids visibly relaxed, "This is one crazy household," Koga stated.
"But, it's family," Kagome said smiling.
Everyone agreed to that, even Sesshomaru, "Park!" Rin cried still dragging a screaming Jaken.
"Rin!" Kohaku yelled, "Wait for everyone else!"
Rin ignored her cousin of sorts and ran out, "Rin!" Kohaku yelled following her out.
Kagura groaned, "No more sugar for her before bed," she said to her husband, "She's more hyper than normal when she wakes up in the morning."
"Agreed," Sesshomaru said.
"Pway! Pway! Pway!" Mitsuko chanted as Sota, Shippo, and Kanna came downstairs.
"We're going," Sota said laughing, "Kohaku went after Rin and Jaken, right?"
"Yep," Inuyasha stated.
"Okay, let's go," Sota said to the rest of them.
"Pway!" Mitsuko yelled happily as the door closed.
"Whose turn for dishes?" Kagome's grandfather asked.
"Koga's," Inuyasha stated.
"Is not!" Koga yelled.
"Is so!" Inuyasha yelled back.
Ayame and Kagome sighed, "Here we go again," they said in unison then everyone, but the two fighting demons (and Sesshomaru) laughed.
