Naraku's Nightmare

Chapter Four: A Happy Ending

            Naraku desperately searched for the Shikon no Tama. Where had that stupid jewel gone? He could have sworn he had put in on the table.

            "Anata~" Ai said, hugging him from behind. He had long given up on trying to shove the woman off. She was way too strong.

            "What?" he asked grumpily.

            "Ne, ne, what are you looking for?" she asked.

            "I'm looking for the Shikon no Tama," he said, trying to move away from her terrifying grip.

            "What's that?" she asked, clueless.

            "It's a shiny jewel," he replied, looking under the table.

            "Oh, you mean that broken jewel?" she asked. He turned to her sharply.

            "Have you seen it?" he asked, hope creeping into his voice. If he could complete the jewel, then he could wish to be rid of her forever!

            "Oh, I gave that broken thing away," she said, walking off.

            "WHAT?!" he yelled. "WHO DID YOU GIVE IT TO?"

            "Those nice people who helped us with our wedding," she replied simply. She turned around and found that Naraku had run off somewhere.

            "Ooh. Hide-n-seek. I'll find you~" she said in a singsong voice and chased after her husband.

            "So what are you going to wish for, Inuyasha?" asked Kagome. Inuyasha turned the jewel around in his hands.

            "I don't know," he said. Suddenly a devious thought formed in his head. "How about…?"

            Naraku rushed to the place where Inuyasha was. He saw the dog youkai take the jewel in his hands. Naraku dived for the jewel.

            "I wish Naraku would stay forever by Ai's side," Inuyasha said. Kagome smiled her approval just as Naraku fell face down, a couple feet short of his goal.

            "Naraku?" the group questioned in unison. Suddenly the jewel glowed a bright color and disappeared.

            "That means the wish was good and pure of heart!" Miroku said.

            "Good riddance to the jewel," Sango commented.

            "Yay! The jewel will never exist again!" Shippou cheered.

            "AHHHHHHHHH!" screamed Naraku. "NOOOOOOOO!!!"
