A/N: Here's story number two, I seriously debated putting this on the site considering there are so many but then I thought "I don't care" and so here we are. A look into my twisted brain will ensue. I do not tolerate Sesshomaru and Rin talking in the third person so don't expect it from me it makes me want to hit something when I read them.

Blanket Disclaimers: I do not own Inuyasha or You are my Sunshine so you no sue.

Affections Found in the Shadow of Death

Chapter One


I Walk through the biting cold, hands blazing with a freezing fire and toes numb in my soaked shoes.

Snow flurries around my shaking body as the cold quickly becomes unbearable. I drop to my knees in the frozen snow, my lips turning up into a sad smile as my fate is sealed in this beautiful landscape. Begrudgingly I think back to the events of the day, my heart aching in my chest for the one I have lost.


I sit by my Shippo, blankets tucked around his small body. He coughs and looks at me with his bright, emerald orbs shining in the light of the fire. Tears blur my vision as I take in his sweet, innocent face, spilling over and trailing down my cheeks.

"Mama?" he says, coughing once more. "Yes, baby?" I ask in a voice choked with sadness. "Will you sing to me again?" he asks, his eyes tired eyes beginning to close. "Y-Yes, baby."

I hold tightly to his hand as I begin.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine

You make me happy when skies are grey.

His breathing becomes shallower, his chest heaving up and down slowly.

You'll never know dear how much I love you

Please don't take my sunshine away.

A sob catches in my throat as his eyes drift shut, his breathing becoming shallower still.

The other night dear while I lay sleeping

I dreamt I held you in my arms,

When I awoke dear I was mistaken

So I hung my head and cried.

"I love you, Mama," he whispers, his final breath coming out with a soft whoosh. I break down, cries of anguish escaping my lips as I hold Shippo to me, rocking back and forth.


More tears leak from my eyes to freeze on my face, the cold numbing me to the pain in my heart.

I wipe my eyes before rising from the snow, making my way back to Kaede's hut. "I love you too, my sweet Shippo," I murmur before entering the tiny hut. I look around the hut at my friends faces, Shippo's body huddled in the blankets where I left him.

I couldn't help myself. I broke down once more, curling into a fetal position as sobs tore through my body. Dimly I am aware of being lifted into someones arms and carried across the room. Abruptly they stop, placing me on something soft and covering me with a thin blanket.

I snuggle into the offered warmth, crying until my eyes won't stay open any longer.

Kim: Sorry for killing Shippo, personally I love Shippo but since no one ever killed Shippo I took the cruel task upon myself. If you are wondering what he died from it was a simple cold since I know something like that would've killed you back then, hell it can still kill you. The medicines Kagome brought from her time were rejected by the young youkais body which only sufficed to make his illness worse. Please read and review, I need to know what's good and what's not so I can get better. I already have other chapters written out so expect updates soon. I am deeply sorry if it sounds like other peoples stories but like I said this kind of story line has been used hundreds of times over.

Shippo: Did you really have to kill me? *Starts pouting*

Kim: No but I felt like being the odd ball out.

Shippo: Fine but you better add me in the story as a ghost or something.

Kim: I'll think about it *taps fingers together like old timey villan* Well... Sayonara;)
