It was a normal day for the InuYasha Gang. They were on there way, finding the rest of the Sacred Jewel Shards. Naraku had almost two-thirds of the jewel while InuYasha had almost one-third. Everyone was enjoying themselves. Shippo was begging carried by his mother Kagome. Well, not his real mother. Kagome adopted him when his parents were killed by the Thunder Brothers. Sango and Miroku were now an item. They weren't too afraid to show their feelings for each other. Sango would still slap him every time he touched her butt. InuYasha on the other hand finally told Kagome that he loved her. She of course told him the same. Everything was going fine until a visit from two people. One of which everyone hates. Well, almost everyone.
"Hey Mama, are we almost to Kaedea's village," Shippo asked Kagome.
"Yeah we're almost there. Why do you ask?"
"It's just that you don't look so good. Are you feeling Okay?". Right when he said this everyone turned to look at her.
"What! I'm fine. Will you guys stop looking a me? I'm just tired that's all." Kagome said this with a little anger in her tone.
"We're just worried. The last time you were sick you nearly died. Well that was because Naraku made you sick." It was Sango that spoke.
"Look. It's Kaedea's village." Shippo said joyfully. They all stopped at Kaedea's Hut. When they walked in they noticed a note one the floor. It read:
I went to the village on the other side of the river to heal their leader.
Most likely he won't survive. But if ye is to be here before I, don't get worried
because I'm fine. Tell InuYasha to NOT terrorize the villagers. I left Tako in charge.
"Well I guess she's not here. So why don't you guys relax here and i'll go to my time and visit my mom." And of course, InuYasha had something to say.
"You can't leave NOW! Naraku has almost all of the jewel shards."
"I'm only going for one day is that a problem?"
"Actually it isn't," a strange voice called. Everyone looked around but couldn't find who was talking. Then out a nowhere a demon jumped in front of Kagome. He was tall and had long black hair that went to about his hips. He had a crescent (spelled right?) moon on his forehead like Sesshomaru's only backwards. He had two red stripes on each side of his cheek.
"Who are you and what to you want with Kagome!" yelled InuYasha.
"I have come to ask a few questions and give HER a few answers." He pointed to Kagome as he said this. " And as for who I am, My name is Lord Hatake of the Eastern Lands. Now can I ask you a few questions?"
"Um... Okay," Kagome wasn't sure what kind of questions he was going to ask her.
" Okay first question, Is it true that you live in a different era?"
"Yes," Kagome said curiously.
"What do you remember about your father?
"Well, my mother told me told me that he died when I was young. And that he was a great man. Also she told me she could never forget his smile. She said every time I smile she sees him. Why do you want to know about my father?"
"What if I told you that your father was still alive and I know where he is?" As soon as he finished his question Kagome grabbed his hori and shouted.
"WHAT DO YOU MEAN HE'S STILL ALIVE? WHERE IS HE? HOW DO YOU KNOW MY FATHER?" Sango and Miroku had to pry her off of him.
"What I mean is that if you go back to your time and ask your mother about our conversation, you will get every answer you need. Well I gotta go. See you soon," and with that he called for a demon cloud just like Sesshomaru's and took off with Kagome running after him.
"Wait, what to do you know about my father please tell me!" It was too late. He was already gone. Kagome fell to her knees and watched as he flew away.
Just then an arrow shot out of nowhere and was aimed straight for Kagome. InuYasha was running to try and block but before he could he stopped dead in is tracks and was shocked with what he saw. Everyone was surprised at what happened, even the person who shot it. Kagome had caught the arrow in between her fingers right before it hit her. But what shocked everyone the most was that it was on of Kikyo's spirit arrows. The arrow just turned to dust once it was caught.
"What do you want Kikyo!" Shouted Kagome. She was not in the mood to deal with her.
"Why do you think. I have come to kill my copy and to talk to InuYahsa. I need to tell him something but it cannot be said around the likes of you."
"Let me guess," Kagome was getting up and started to walk over to Kikyo ( while she is talking ) "You came to tell InuYasha that you 'love' him and that you don't care that he's a Half Demon. You also want to ask him if he will love you even though your a dead clay pot."
"Very clever. But the ' dead clay pot ' comment was not needed." "Well it's true." Kagome didn't care at the moment she was still upset about that demon.
"Look you can go ahead and talk to him. I have more important matters to take care of."
"What do you mean more important? Kagome I thought I was important to you?" InuYasha said this with sadness in his voice.
"InuYasha you are important to me. It's just that I have to know if my father is really alive. You would do the same if Kouga wanted to talk to me and you found out that your mother could still be alive." InuYasha didn't say anything. He knew this was true.
"Fine. But I don't have to talk to her." He pointed to Kikyo. " I don't care. You can kill her if you want. I'll see you tomorrow." Kagome than ran into the forest and jumped into the well.
When Kagome got to her time the first thing she did was run straight into her house. Souta and Grandpa were in the living room when they heard the loud BANG of the door opening.
"MOM! Where are you? I need to ask you something." Kagome's mother came out of the kitchen and looked as though she knew she was in trouble.
"What is it darling?" She tried to sound as calm as possible.
"Okay. There was this weird demon who came up to me and started asking me questions. He sad his name was ' Lord Hatake of the Eastern Lands an-" she was caught off when her mom let ot a small shriek. Then her mother started pacing around the room really nervous like.( imagine it as if you just told you mom you were pregnant - or got someone pregnant - and she didn't take it well ).
"Oh no! Not now. This can't be. I can't believe he showed up. I thought he was going to wait until she was eighteen. Huh! GRANDPA!" As soon as she shouted this, he came running in.
"What is it. Mia what's wrong?"
"Hatake, he found Kagome. I think it's almost time." Her grandpa looked horror struck.
