"Sesshomaru, I can't meet with you anymore. It should have been obvious after the first time but just because we slept together, it doesn't mean we're no longer enemies. One of us is going to end up dying fighting each other one day, so getting attached in any way is completely meaningless. I just came this time to tell you that."

'At least that was the idea,' Byakuya thought as he lied naked in bed, the covers tucked over him, Sesshomaru's arm wrapped around him as he was pressed against the demon lord's chest, 'if you had let me speak through any of that. Handsome jerk.'

"Does sleeping with me trouble you?" Sesshomaru asked, breaking the silence that had overtaken the room.

Byakuya opened his eyes, surprised, but didn't let his face show it. Eye's half closed, he refused to look at the demon lord. "Why do you ask that?"

"You never seemed like the type of person to be silent after sex. Yet you refuse to speak."

"It's not that I refuse." Byakuya shifted slightly. "My throat's tired from moaning and such."

Sesshomaru chuckled then bit the top of Byakuya's ear.

"Mm!" Byakuya suppressed a moan, flinching. "Sessho—I—"

Sesshomaru's hand reached up and started to play with his nipple.

"Wait," Byakuya grabbed his hand but couldn't—wouldn't—push it away. "Sessho—"

Sesshomaru licked Byakuya's neck and nibbled on his ear.

"Ah, stop! Listen I—"

Sesshomaru pinched Byakuya's nipple between his index and thumb, making the illusionist flinch.

'Shit, I can't…let this continue!'

"Stop!" Byakuya yelled, turning around and pushing his hands against Sesshomaru's chest.

Sesshomaru stared at him then narrowed his eyes.

"We—this-this is our last time." Byakuya said, looking down, his hands still on the demon lord's chest. "We can't meet anymore."

"Why?"

"'Why?' Because we're enemies. We'll meet in battle one day and fight to the death. So, it'd be idiotic to get attached like this. So-so today's out last time."

Sesshomaru was silent.

'Did I convince him…?'

Sesshomaru suddenly grabbed Byakuya's wrists and moved them out of the way. Byakuya's eyes went wide as the demon lord grabbed him by his chin so the illusionist had to look at him.

"I refuse."

Sesshomaru kissed the lesser demon.

Byakuya's breath was snatched away. Unable to breath, he pushed against Sesshomaru's shoulder. He breathed in hard through his nose, moaning in protest.

Sesshomaru separated and Byakuya gasped. The demon lord moved down and licked his neck.

"I-I wasn't asking!" Byakuya yelled as Sesshomaru pushed him onto his back. "I was telling!"

"I refuse."

Sesshomaru pushed in between Byakuya's legs. He pressed their bodies together and continued to nibble on the illusionist's neck.

"Quit! I'm serious! We can't do this anymore!"

"I refuse."

"It's not a debation!"

Byakuya pushed against Sesshomaru hard and managed to get the bigger demon off him. But the demon lord retaliated by grabbing his wrists and pinning them above his head. Byakuya's eyes widened.

"I refuse." Sesshomaru repeated.

"What's with that?! I started this relationship and I'll end it when I want! Besides if you want a sex toy, there're plenty of other moth demons out there for you to fuck!" Byakuya felt the tears rise in his throat as he closed his eyes and turned his head away, swallowing them down. "Someone like you wouldn't have a problem picking someone else up."

Sesshomaru stared down at him. "You believe I can throw you away that easily?"

Byakuya opened his eyes to the words.

"If you were just a toy to me then I would not have asked you to return." Sesshomaru stated.

Byakuya heart thumped. He was delighted to hear his hypothesis being confirmed. And yet he felt like his heart was being stomped on while his mind was being thrown about. He clenched his teeth.

"Then what am I to you?!" He yelled, closing his eyes tight shut.

'This wasn't supposed to be painful. It was supposed to be simple. He-he's making it difficult.' Tears stung Byakuya's closed eyes. 'God dammit.'

"Become my lover."

Byakuya's eyes opened and widened. 'Eh?'

He turned and looked up at Sesshomaru, confusion in his expression.

"Become my lover, Byakuya." Sesshomaru said, leaning down. "Become mine."

He kissed him.

Byakuya stared at the demon lord, Sesshomaru's tongue beginning to mingle with his own, then his eyes tightened in pain and he jerked his head away. He glared up at Sesshomaru, tears starting to flood his vision while his body trembled. "Don't-don't fuck with me! I'm a detachment of Naraku—the man who kidnapped your precious Rin and tried to absorb you! Why would you want me?!"

"Because I do." Sesshomaru simply stated. "You are the demon I want. There is no replacement. So become mine."

Byakuya's expression twisted in pain, tears streaming his cheeks now. "I…I—mm!" Sesshomaru kissed him.

Byakuya automatically pulled away and tried to free his hands. He thrashed wildly. When he wasn't able to free them, out of frustration and heartbreak, he crumpled into sobs.

"You're such a dick! You play with my fucking heart so easily and not even realize what you're doing! You're a dick! A fucking dick! And you want me to be your lover?! I won't be a lover to someone who has more than one!" Byakuya glared up at him. "Only if I'm you only one! If you have some other hussy in the background—"

"You are my only one. I have no desire to be with anyone else."

Byakuya was silent.

"Become mine, Byakuya. You already let me mark your body. How hard can it be for you to let me mark your heart?"

"I…I…I-I can't. I—mm hmm!"

Sesshomaru's kissed Byakuya more forcefully and demandingly.

"Mm! Nm!" Byakuya tries to get his arms free.

Sesshomaru pulled away and looked at him. "Why can't you?"

"Be-because I-I'm Narak—"

"I don't care about that. If I did, I wouldn't have slept with you at all."

"But I—"

"We have a good thing going, Byakuya." 'Stop interrupting me, dammit!'"Why do you wish to get out of it?"

"Because, because I…I never thought you'd get attached." Byakuya's face softened in pain. "I didn't want you to fall in love with me. I wanted to fall out of love with you. I've loved you for so long but I don't want to get attached. I mean one day, we'll have to fight a death match and I can't—won't—betray Naraku. I just can't."

"Because he'll kill you like he killed Kagura for trying to get her freedom?"

Byakuya's eyes went wide. "That's how Kagura died?"

"You didn't know?"

Byakuya stared at him then looked away. "I know nothing about that woman other than I am her replacement and she wished for freedom."

"Do you wish for freedom?"

"I'm not imprisoned!" Byakuya glared up at him. "I'm loyal to Naraku because I want to be not because I have to be! I'm happy with him."

"And you can't be happy with me?"

"I…I…" Byakuya's eyes wouldn't meet Sesshomaru's as he blushed. "I-I want to be happy…with you, but I will not betray Naraku."

"I'm not asking you to. I'm asking you to become my lover."

"How can I do both?!" he yelled.

"Naraku has my little brother as a lover, correct?"

Byakuya's eyes went wide. "How…?"

"I can smell him on your clothes."

Byakuya blushed, is eyes narrowing. "What of it?"

"Naraku's purpose was to destroy my little brother but now he has taken him on as a lover and now, his purpose to fight is gone. Why would he wish to fight me now?"

Byakuya didn't answer.

"Naraku isn't what's holding you back. I want you, don't you want me?"

Byakuya clenched his teeth then closed his eyes and turned his head away.

"I…I want…you. But you…you won't…throw me away…when you get tired of me?"

"Why would I get tired of you? If I would tire then I wouldn't have made such a request." Sesshomaru released Byakuya's wrist and pulled his hand up to his mouth. He kissed the dainty knuckles. "I wish for you to become my lover. You're answer?"

Byakuya stared up at him, his expression soft. Then it laced with pain. He pulled his hand away. Sesshomaru's eyes narrowed at the illusionist.

'I…I'm a fool.'

Byakuya wrapped his arms around Sesshomaru's neck and held him tightly. "If you betray me, I swear I'll kill you."

Sesshomaru eyes widened a moment then he chuckled and embraced Byakuya. "I would do no such thing."


And done. Damn this took forever.

Well, like I stated up above my computer broke down so now I can't type at my leisure. But now that it's down, I'm more determined to write then ever. But it will take a while so please don't give up on me.

Another show breaker to my story is that I'm working on publishing a story. It's a joint activity with my friends Sharyl and Caitlin. Because it'll take a while, I spend most of my free time writing that. But fanfic is the only thing I need a computer for so whenever I get on one, it will be to type my stories.

NOW ON TO IMPORTANT SHIT!

I noticed while reading InuYasha that Byakuya usually popped up to delay or talk to Sesshomaru. I thought they would be a great couple so I wrote this. This one is definitely my favorite pairing out of all the InuYasha things.

Alright, the next stories I plan to do are shorter one-shots. They only took 8-10 pages to write so they're really short.

But I hope people will like them.

Don't give up on me yet.
