Kaly: Okay let's get this show on the road then. Sakura-chan doesn't own Inuyasha so don't sue her.
Sakura: Thanks Kaly-chan now on with the story.
Chapter 1 Shippo's Choices
"Sango, when do you think Kagome and Inuyasha will return?" Shippo asked after they had set up camp for the night. One hour after they left Kagome and Inuyasha to reverse the spell.
"I don't know Shippo, but I'm sure they will come back very soon," Sango said as she comforted Shippo.
"They might be gone for a long time. They might be doing some inappropriate things," Miroku with a perverted grin on his face as he walked up behind Sango and placed his hand on her but.
"Henti!" screamed Sango as she hit Miroku in the head with her giant boomerang. "Miroku don't say perverted things about Kagome and Inuyasha."
"I didn't say anything about Inuyasha and Kagome," Miroku said smiling innocently.
"Maybe not but you were suggesting it," Sango said glaring at Miroku.
"My lovely Sango now would I do something like that?" said Miroku as he looked right into Sango's eyes.
"Yes you would," Sango said right to Miroku's face.
"I'm so misjudged," said Miroku as he sighed deeply.
"What are you guys talking about?" asked a confused Shippo.
"Nothing important, right Miroku?" Sango asked as she looked right into Miroku's eyes, daring him to say otherwise.
"Right nothing important," Miroku repeated nervously.
"I so hope everything went well with the spell," Shippo said, his worries beginning to resurface.
"Me too Shippo, me too," replied Sango as Miroku nodded his head in agreement.
-With Inuyasha and Kagome-
Inuyasha and Kagome were sitting and watching the stars when Kagome remembered her family. "Inuyasha?" Kagome called. Inuyasha looked at her with love in his eyes and his dog ears on top of his head twitched to show he was paying attention to what she was saying. "I have to go home to tell my mom what has happened," Kagome continued after getting Inuyasha's attention.
"Okay, Kagome. Do you want me to come with you?" Inuyasha asked seeing how uneasy Kagome was.
"Thanks Inuyasha that would help me a lot," Kagome replied smiling at Inuyasha.
"Lets head back to the group I bet their worried about you," Inuyasha said. "We can go back to your time tomorrow ok?"
"Okay Inuyasha," said Kagome as they stood up.
"Let's test out your Hanyou powers now," said Inuyasha. "I'll train you in all of your powers later."
"Okay, what's first?" Kagome asked Inuyasha smiling.
"What can you smell?" Inuyasha asked.
"I smell nature and I think Miroku, Sango and Shippo in that direction," Kagome replied pointing in the direction the sent was coming form.
"Your right now let's test out your speed. We'll head to the camp," Inuyasha replied.
Kagome looked nervously at the direction of camp then after a slight pause said, "Ok."
"What are you worried about Kagome?" Inuyasha asked, concerned about her.
"I'm just worried about how they will take my change," Kagome replied looking at the ground.
"I'm sure they will be ok with it, they will be shocked at first but I'm sure they will accept it after all you are still you," Inuyasha said as he hugged Kagome close.
"Thanks Inuyasha, I needed to hear that," Kagome said as she hugged Inuyasha back.
Inuyasha lifted her head up and kissed Kagome straight on the lips. When they parted he whispered in her new dog ear, "You're beautiful no matter how you look Koishii."
Kagome's bright blue eyes widened in surprise at the endearment for her, then smiled widely at him. "Ok let's go," said Kagome her confidence returning after hearing Inuyasha say those things.
Inuyasha smiled at Kagome and grabbed her hand. "Ready to show them the new you?" Inuyasha asked Kagome who nodded her head in reply. "Then let's head back to camp."
Inuyasha and Kagome ran towards the camp, hand in hand, when they reached the edge of camp Kagome suddenly stopped. Inuyasha noticed that she stopped and squeezed her hand in reassuringly. Kagome looked up at Inuyasha and smiled nervously. Inuyasha smiled back and led her into the clearing. All talk stopped immediately at their entrance. After a slight pause a burst of questions erupted from the group. "Is that really you Kagome?" "What happened to Kikyo?" "Why did you turn into a half demon?" "Do you have any special powers?"
"Whoa, slow down. One question at a time," Kagome said as she looked from one person to the other confused.
"Why are you a half demon?" Shippo asked as he looked up at Kagome's black dog ears.
"I'm not sure bout I think it had to do with Inuyasha giving me his blood," Kagome said with a puzzled look on her face.
"What happened to Kagerou and that hot babe, I mean Kaly?" Miroku asked, receiving a death glare from Sango.
"They disappeared after cutting Kikyo's head off," Inuyasha replied since Kagome didn't see what had happened.
"Do you have any youki (demon) powers?" Sango asked.
"She should have about the same powers as me," Inuyasha answered. Kagome was looking at the ground with tears in her eyes.
"You all still accept me even with my change?" Kagome asked in a small voice while looking at the ground, tears flowing down her face.
"Of course we do Kagome, your part of our family no matter what you look like," Sango said as she went over and hugged Kagome. "You're like the sister I never had."
"I was so worried about you when you were gone Kagome," Shippo cried as he jumped into Kagome's arms and held her as tightly as he could.
"Kagome you are an important part of this group, even if you are different on the outside you are still the same Kagome on the inside and we all love you," said Miroku as he smiled at the teary eyed Kagome.
"I told you they'd accept you," Inuyasha said as he wrapped his arm around Kagome's waist.
Miroku raised an eyebrow at Inuyahsa's action. "Well, well when did this development happen?" Miroku asked.
Inuyasha and Kagome blushed a deep crimson at Miroku's mention of their new relationship. "Well um you see…" Kagome stuttered unable to finish her sentence, as she buried he head in Inuyahsa's chest.
"So are you two finally a couple?" Sango asked as a giant smile spread across her face.
"Yea we are," Inuyasha answered and he stroked Kagome's hair, with a light blush still on his face.
"Finally," Miroku, Sango and Shippo said as they smiled at the new couple. "I always thought you two would end up together," Miroku said and he slapped Inuyasha on the back.
"Kagome there is a hot spring nearby, why don't we go take a bath," Sango said as she got to her feet.
"That sounds like a great idea Sango. After all that's happened today I think we disserve a nice bath," Kagome said as she got to her feet. "I could use a nice long soak. Inuyasha can you make sure Miroku stays here?"
"No problem," Inuyasha said, smirking at Miroku's sulky expression.
-Sango and Kagome-
Kagome sighed as she lowered herself into the hot spring. "This feels so good," Kagome commented as she closed her eyes and relaxed.
"Hey Kagome, what really happened between you and Inuyasha?" Sango asked as she too lowered herself into the hot spring.
Kagome blushed and whispered, "After Kaly and Kagerou killed Kikyo Inuyasha gave me some of his blood and I turned into a hanyou. Then he … told me he loved me." Kagome's blush deepened as she though of the kiss they shared afterwards.
"That's not, is it?" said Sango. 'Something good must have happened for Kagome to be blushing this much,' Kagome thought.
"Inuyasha, he… he kissed me," Kagome whispered, her blush deepening still.
Sango looked at Kagome in shock. "Wow I can't believe that Inuyasha is finally showing you his feelings. I'm so happy for you," Sango said as she hugged Kagome.
"Thank you Sango. By the way I'm going home tomorrow afternoon and will be gone for two to three days," Kagome said as she leaned against a rock.
"Is Inuyasha going with you?" asked Sango curiously. Kagome nodded her head. "Should we head back to the boys now?"
"Yea, who knows what Miroku, is doing or saying," Kagome said laughing as she stood up and got dressed.
"Let's head back then," Sango said as she followed Kagome's actions and got dressed.
-Inuyasha, Shippo and Miroku-
"Come on Inuyasha, what did you and Kagome really do while you two were alone?" Miroku asked with a perverted grin on his face.
"Shut-up Miroku. Nothing you are thinking happened," Inuyasha said glaring at Miroku. 'I hope Kagome and Sango get back soon or I might end up killing the monk,' Inuyasha thought as he continued to watch Miroku to make sure he didn't head towards the hot springs to go spy on the girls.
"Come on Inuyasha, you guys were gone for and hour, something had to have happened," said Miroku and Shippo just sat next to Inuyasha watching the conversation. Inuyasha finally got tired of Miroku's perverted comments and knocked him unconscious.
'Now's the time to ask Inuyasha, while Kagome and Sango are gone and Miroku is unconscious. But will Inuyasha hate me for asking,' Shippo thought getting more nervous by the second. "Um… Inuyasha?" Shippo called looking down at his feet.
'What could the kit want?' Inuyasha asked himself as he looked at Shippo. 'He seems nervous about something, I wonder what it is?' "What do you want Shippo?" Inuyasha asked keeping his eyes on the kit.
'I'm lucky that Miroku is unconscious otherwise he would probably laugh at me,' Shippo thought tears coming to his eyes. "I was going to ask Kagome later if she would let me call her okaa-san and I was wondering if I could call you…Otou-san." Shippo said in a low voice fearing rejection.
Inuyasha was shocked. 'Why would he want me to be his father? I thought he hated me,' Inuyasha thought confused. "Why do you want me to be your Otou-san?" Inuyasha asked a nervous Shippo.
"Well you and Kagome are like my parents, protecting, feeding and watching over me and I was just hoping you two would be my parents," Shippo said crying softly. "I've always looked up to you."
"Do you really want me to be your Otou-san?" Inuyasha asked. Shippo nodded his head and waited for rejection.
'What was I thinking asking Inuyasha that, he'll never agree to it,' Shippo thought sadly as the tears started falling down his face,
"Okay Shippo, I'll be your Otou-san," Inuyasha said smiling. 'After all he's been through he deserves this, and Kagome will love to have Shippo as he son,' Inuyasha thought.
"Really?" Shippo asked Inuyasha. Seeing Inuyasha nod his head and smiling at him, Shippo jumped into Inuyasha's arms. "Thank you Otou-san," Shippo said happily as he hugged Inuyasha and cried into his shoulder.
"No problem Shippo," Inuyasha said as he hugged the kit to him. "When are you going to ask Kagome?"
"I'll ask her when she gets back from the hot springs. Do you think she'll say yes?" Shippo asked, feeling nervous again.
"Of course she will. Kagome will be happy you asked her. She's always thought of you as her son," Inuyasha said as he tried to calm down his son. "What about Sango and Miroku?"
"They can be my Aunt and Uncle," Shippo said happily. "Then we will really be a family. Aunty and Okaa-san are already like sisters." Inuyasha smiled at Shippo's description of Sango and Kagome.
'They really are like sisters now that I think about it,' Inuyasha thought happily. 'We really are like a family. All we need to do is destroy Naraku and find the rest of the Sacred Jewel and then we can all live happily.'
"Ouch… Inuyasha did you have to hit me so hard," Miroku said as he woke up. Shippo jumped from Inuyasha's arms and his shoulder.
"You disserved it Uncle Miroku," said Shippo from Inuyasha's shoulder.
"Uncle? When did this start?" asked Miroku as he sat up, looking at Inuyasha confused.
Shippo looked at Inuyasha for permission, at his nod he told Miroku, "Inuyasha and Kagome are going to be my parents and you and Sango are my Aunt and Uncle." Shippo jumped up and down happily.
"Looks like the girls are coming back," stated Inuyasha as he smelled Kagome and Sango approaching. "Don't worry Shippo, Kagome will say yes." At Inuyasha's words Shippo slightly relaxed.
"I hope you are right Otou-san," Shippo whispered to Inuyasha as he hopped of his shoulder.
"Were back!" said Kagome as she and Sango entered the camp. "Thank you for watching Miroku, Inuyasha."
"Kagome, I have something to ask you," said Shippo nervously.
Kagome's doggy ears twitched. She knelt down to Shippo and said, "What is it Shippo?"
Shippo looked into Kagome's bright blue eyes. "Kagome will you be my mommy?" Shippo asked with a shaky voice and hope in his green eyes.
"Of course Shippo, I'd love to be your mommy," said Kagome with a gentle smile on her face as she picked up her son and hugged him.
"Thank you Okaa-san," said Shippo crying into her chest. "You were right Otou-san."
Kagome looked at Inuyasha and smiled, tears coming into her eyes. Inuyasha walked behind Kagome and rapped an arm around her shoulders. "I told you it would be okay Shippo," Inuyasha as he smiled at his family.
"Looks like you guys are really a family," said Sango. 'I'm kinda jealous of them. They have a family and I have no one,' thought Sango sadly.
"Um…Sango?" said Shippo after he stopped crying.
"Yes Shippo," said Sango confused. 'What could he have to ask me?' Sango thought.
"Can I call you Aunty?" asked Shippo staring at her with hopeful eyes.
Sango's eyes widened. 'He wants to include me in the family,' Sango thought happily. "Of course Shippo," said Shippo smiling.
"Aunty, you and Okaa-san are like sisters, right?" asked a curious Shippo.
'Does Kagome think of me that way? I'd love to have her as a sister. She said in her letter she saw me as a sister but I thought she was just trying to make us fell better about her passing,' thought Sango as she looked over at Kagome with a hopeful expression in her eyes.
"Of course Shippo. Me and Aunty are sisters, right Sango-chan," said Kagome as she smiled at Sango.
"Yes," said Sango as she hugged her new onee-chan. "Arigatou Kagome-chan."
"No problem Sango-chan. I have always considered you my onee-chan," said Kagome as she hugged Sango back.
"Let's have some dinner," said Shippo as he jumped onto Inuyasha's shoulders.
After dinner everyone settled around the fire. Kagome sat next to Inuyasha with Shippo in her lap and Sango sat on Kagome's right and on her left was Miroku. "Tomorrow I'm going home to tell my mom what has happened," Kagome announced.
"Okay Kagome-chan," Sango said, after Kagome had called her sister she had started calling Kagome Kagome-chan.
"Let's get some rest then we can reach Kaede's village by midday," said Miroku as he put more wood into the fire.
"Okay then lets all go to sleep," said Kagome as she went over to her bag and pulled out two sleeping bags. "Here Sango-chan," said Kagome handing a magenta sleeping bag to her sister.
"Thank you Kagome-chan," said Sango as she laid it near the fire.
'I was hoping she'd sleep in a tree with me,' though Inuyasha.
Kagome's ears twitched in his direction, as if hearing his thoughts, before she turned around and smiled brightly at him. She tucked her other sleeping bag into her bag and pulled out a blanket. "Inuyasha would you mind if me and Shippo slept with you in a tree?" Kagome asked as she walked over to Inuyasha's side.
"It's like you read my mind," Inuyasha whispered into her ear as he picked her and their pup up and jumped into a tree. Inuyasha settled Kagome in his lab as Kagome settled Shippo into hers then she draped the blanket over them.
"Goodnight Inuyasha. Goodnight Shippo," said Kagome, Sango and Miroku had already fallen asleep.
"Goodnight Okaa-san. Goodnight Otou-san," Shippo said as he snuggled into Kagome's arms and falling asleep immediately.
Inuyasha rapped his arms around Kagome's waist before whispering to her, "Goodnight Koishii."
