I do not own Yu Yu Hakusho nor do I own InuYasha.

Yomi sat upon his throne listening to one of his subjects tell him rumors that the Shikon no Tama was discovered to be on the human world. Shura turned to his blind 'father' "Papa, will you go seek it? I heard that it can make your wish come true. You could regain your sight."
Yomi shook his head, "I lost my sight a long time ago. I grew these ears just for that purpose. I do not need to be able to see to become stronger. Besides, Shura, using an artificial way to gain strength cheapens your victory."
"Wise words, King of Makai."
Yomi's ears twitched as his nose took in a most heavenly scent, "Who are you? And how dare you enter here with out announcing yourself."
"My apologies, I am Kagome, the envoy sent by the Lord of the West. Sesshoumaru-sama asked me to visit the kings under his control. It is nice to see your blindness has not affected your ability to rule. And who is this little one?"
Yomi straightened up, "What is the purpose for your visit? I doubt it was to inquire about my blindness."
"Not completely. If we may have a private audience. I'll like to discuss matters further."
Rubbing his chin thoughtfully, Yomi stood. "Tomorrow, we will have that audience. Right now, I am famished. Shura, could you show Kagome-san to the guest suite so that she may freshen up before supper."
"Yes Papa. Come, Kagome-san."
The 20 year-old miko smiled at the child and resisted the urge to cuddle him. She always had a soft spot for children. Even now, she loves being around Kirara and her kittens when the priestess is in Makai. Kagome's mouth opened in awe, the guest suite was elaborately decorated. Sending a second smile to the child, "Would you like for me to help you wash up for supper?"
"You smell like dog."
Kagome giggled, "Of course I do. I don't know if you know this, but the lord of the West is a dog demon. I do tell him to control his shedding but he doesn't believe he has a problem."
Quickly Kagome washed both herself and the young clone and the two headed into the dining room, where Kagome spotted her travel companion, Shippo, "I see you made it finally. Was the village lovely?"
"I found some good shops but I was surprised you didn't meet up under the tree like planned so I went searching for you."
Kagome nodded and softly explained to Shippo in English to have him explore the kingdom and keep his ears to the ground for any rumors while she stayed there and discussed the very dangerous ramifications of what could happen if any one discovered the jewel and used it.
Shippo frowned thoughtfully but replied in Japanese, "Are you sure you can trust him?"
Yomi bristled at this, he wasn't sure what the envoy of Sesshoumaru said but he knew that the kitsune was speaking about him. But Kagome's reply settled his ire, "Hai. Sesshoumaru-sama trusts him. And he seems like a good person."
Shippo nodded and pressing a kiss to his mother's forehead he leaped from the dining hall window and streaked towards town intent on hitting up the local pub for drinks and information.
Yomi replied noncommittally, "I see your friend wasn't able to stay."
Nodding, Kagome explained that he was more interested in the local scene than the stuffy politics that was castle life. He wanted to make sure that she was safe before he returned to the locals.
Yomi held his arm out in gesture for the woman to hold on to and was pleasantly surprised to find that her arm like her voice was soft and gentle to the touch.
She smiled and asked him to lead the way. Shura had jumped ahead of the group and was already in the dining hall. "You aren't a demon."
Kagome giggled, "No I am not. Sesshoumaru-sama discovered the importance of having a spiritually aware human in his employ. I can filter between the barrier unhindered which is a powerful asset and I don't stink according to him."
The blind king allowed a smile to grace his face, she definitely did not stink especially since she washed off the smell of dog from her person. 'Attract more information with honey than vinegar.' "If I may? I would like to know how you look like."
Not expecting that, the miko stilled next to the youkai, "Of course." And led the demon's hands towards her face. Yomi was pleased to 'see' that she was as beautiful as her smell and shorter than her aura was projecting. He couldn't help but ponder what colour her hair, skin and eyes were, a thought that hadn't crossed his mind for years when a voice interrupted him, "Blue."
"My eyes are blue. You were mentioned you wanted to know the colour of my eyes. They are blue."
"I apologize I didn't realize I had said that aloud. We've reached the dinning room. If you would allow me to direct you to a seat, the servants can begin bringing out supper out."
Kagome gave a nod as well as a verbal murmur of agreement and was led to the seat to the left of the head of the table with Shura to the right of what was obviously Yomi's chair. That evening meal was the most energetic one Yomi had experienced in years. When Kagome's words to Shura's innocent question of if she knew Yusuke Urameshi surprised him, "Yusuke-chan? He's my cousin. His mother and my mother are sisters. I haven't seen him in about 5 years though."
Mentally adding to herself, 'Since I first fell into the well. I wonder if I could ever tell him about my adventures. But wait…'"How do you know him?"
Shura then went into telling Kagome about the Tournament and how he had the chance to see Yusuke fight in the tournament to be king of Makai. Kagome smiled, "Yusuke-chan never struck me as the type to want to deal with Politics. But I see he chose his ally well. Yomi-sama seems wise and benevolent."
Yomi felt an invisible flush on his face at those words of praise, "Flattery would not cause us to speak of business before our scheduled time."
"Wouldn't dream of it, Yomi-sama."
The king bit back a retort. For some reason this woman was unknowingly bringing out a playful side of his personality. Something he was trying to repress. He could imagine her batting her eyelashes at him with her quip. It made him wonder how the rest of her looked, he knew what her face felt and looked like now his mind wanted to know if her body matched the attractiveness of her face. 'It must be close to mating season for me to be so interested in a woman I just met. Though she does smell heavenly.'
Yomi shook those ideas from his head and proceeded to question Kagome on her cousin storing fascinating facets of Yusuke's fear of spiders and how when he was a young child he used to tell Kagome that he wanted to be a princess, that it wasn't fair for her to be the only princess. Something he could never imagine the toushin doing. "Of course I think that is why Yusuke is so macho now a days. To live down that humiliation."
"As amusing as it is to hear of Yusuke's childhood. How did a human like you meet with Sesshoumaru-sama?"
"I interested him. I was this annoying little puzzle he couldn't figure out. So he decided to collect me."
"What do you mean you interested him?"
"I wouldn't die when he tried to kill me. That intrigued him. I was a companion of his half brother at the time."
Yomi nodded to himself; that made sense. Hanyou's often were able to pass through the barrier freely. He must have met Kagome on the other side and brought her through to Makai where the old dog met her.
"Yomi! Where are you?"
The room to the dining room opened and in strolled a disgruntled Yusuke Urameshi.
Kagome smiled to herself, "Really Yusuke-chan. Don't you know you are supposed to be announced before you enter a home."
The detective did a quick double take. He wasn't expecting to see Yomi with anyone, especially a woman. He had always thought that having himself cloned as Shura was enough of the interest he had in propagation. Once the shock of seeing the blind king with someone wore off he realized he recognized the person calmly sipping soup next to Yomi, "Eh, Kagome?"
Yomi felt his forehead twitched, he normally enjoyed having the detective around but he liked being with Kagome and listening to her speak. "What brings you here, Detective?"
Yusuke focused on the youkai feeling his irritation under the surface. "Koenma heard that there were demons hoping to gather together and get some jewel. Kurama went to speak to Sesshoumaru to see what he knew about it. And Hiei is with Mukuro to gather information while Kuwabara is handling things on the Ningenkai side. With his spiritual awareness Koenma believed him best to find it. But we can talk about that later, Yomi. Kagome, What the hell are you doing in Makai?"
Kagome set her spoon down, "I was eating soup with Yomi-sama and Shura-kun before you interrupted. My question, dear cousin, is does Atsuko-oba-san know you are here?"
"Does your mother know?"
Kagome nodded, "I see no reason not to tell her. InuYasha does pick me up from the shrine when he or Sesshoumaru-sama are in need of my services."
Yomi interrupted the two, "Why don't you sit down Detective since you seem so willing to talk business I may as well handle the business with Kagome-san first before we handle your matters."
The Spirit Detective did so while Kagome cleared her throat, "Yomi-sama I would rather discuss that in private."
Yusuke swore as he stood up, "Fuck no, I want to know why you are here and how the hell do you know demons."
Kagome arched an eyebrow at his language but she remained silent, trying to not loose her temper as Yusuke's protests got louder and louder. "Shut up, cousin. I am not deaf neither are Yomi-sama nor Shura-kun. Youkai have sensitive hearing and I'm certain Yomi-sama-s hearing is even more developed."
"You do not have to refer to me as -sama all the time. I believe Yomi will be fine.
And, Yusuke, she isn't here as your cousin. She is here on official business from Sesshoumaru-sama and if that information is of a confidential nature. I would ask you to respect that."
"You are ruling in my steed I have a right to know what's going on!"
Kagome interrupted the rising tension, "I would tell you as my cousin and a king of Makai but the fact remains you are here as an agent of Reikai and Sesshoumaru-sama cannot afford to let Koenma get his greedy little hands on the information. That is why he sent me out to handle this matter."
Yusuke huffed and settled back down, "I won't tell the toddler. I bet you are here about that jewel to if that old dog doesn't want Koenma to know about it. He sent you out here because if he was traveling himself it would have attracted Reikai's attention. Isn't that right."
"Your grades are a poor reflection on your intelligence, Yusuke. Yomi-sama if you are willing to discuss the matters tonight I will gladly go to a conference room."
Kagome laid in bed afterward. Yomi had cut the meeting short just allowing Kagome to start explaining the repercussions of hunting the Shikon no Tama. She had no chance to explain that Sesshoumaru wanted no one hunting the jewel. She had to make sure Yomi understood the importance of not seeking the jewel. And she had to do it soon for some insane lapse of judgment, Sesshoumaru allowed InuYasha to speak with Mukuro. Knowing those two, they would come to blows soon enough. But now she had the unwanted presence of Reikai meddling in the affairs. "Just what I need, Koenma sticking his pacifier breath where it doesn't need to be. Must be nuts if he thinks he's going to get any information on the Shikon no Tama from Sesshoumaru."
Yomi then focused his attention on what Yusuke was doing, wincing mentally when he heard what sounded like a chair being thrown against the wall, "FUCK IT. Why the hell is Kagome mixed up in all this. She JUST got better from her sicknesses too. Fucking Pacifier Breath better explain to me what is really going on here. He's nuts if he thinks I'm going to risk anyone's life for a stupid rock. Damnit! I'm just going to shake answers out of Kagome. She's hiding something….why didn't she tell me she knew about how demons were real. I thought we were family."
Yusuke stilled in his room as the realization crept in, that Kagome, his baby cousin, had a whole other life. Something she didn't feel like sharing with him. But he had to reason he didn't tell her about being a spirit detective. Shaking his head, "Doesn't matter, I'm older. She should have told me. I could have protected her."
Morning brought to Yomi, a cranky detective and a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed Kagome. Yomi decided to deal with the friendlier of the two at the moment, "Kagome-san you have my word that I nor my own will look for the cursed jewel. I have heard stories of how those who sought its powers have been punished. Lives destroyed, love lost, the fighting. I am rather fond of this peace I have found; thanks to Yusuke."
Kagome nodded relieved, she was worried if he went after it who would watch and rear Shura. "Thank you, Yomi, and please call me Kagome. Now that my business is done; I would like for us to be friends."
Yomi sent her a smile, wishing he could see her smile that was sure to light up her eyes. Yusuke choked, he never seen a smile like that from Yomi. But before he could ask what was going on between the two when Shippo ran in, "Kagome! They know where it is hidden in Ningenkai. I overheard some demons talking about how they had a group from the other kingdoms that were going to gather together to a rip in the barrier and head to the shrine."
Kagome and Yomi both stiffened, "This occurred in my kingdom you say?"
Shippo turn to the king, "Yes I overhead them last night."
Kagome bit her lip worriedly, "Did you kill them Shippo?"
"Not yet. I want to follow them to where they are meeting the other demons before I dispatch of them. I came to see if you wanted to join in on killing them."
Yusuke stepped in, "First off who the fuck are you? And secondly Kagome isn't going anywhere nor is she killing anything."
Kagome put her hands on Yusuke's chest, "Yusuke, please calm down. This is Shippo. He is my travel companion while I'm helping Sesshoumaru-sama. Shippo-chan, can you go without me? I'll go on ahead to Mukuro-chan's palace. I'm certain she and InuYasha are at each other's throats by now."
Yomi interrupted the two, "Shippo. if you do not mind I would like to join you. I must show my people that I will not tolerate this sort of behaviour."
The kitsune shrugged, "Why not. Kagome will you be okay getting to Mukuro-sama's place without me?"
Pressing a kiss to the kitsune's cheek, "Be safe, Shippo, and watch after Yomi."
The kitsune teased him mother gently, "So little time with him and you already have feelings for him."
"Shut up kit. I may love you but I can still kick your butt worse than Sesshoumaru can."
Shippo began whining but Yomi yanked the kitsune with him. "Come we have no time to waste."
Yusuke frowned but turned to his cousin. "I don't like this but I'll get you to Mukuro's safely. And along the way I want you to tell me about what's going on and why are you here."
The cousins departed from the king and kitsune and headed east, while the others headed west.
"You like Kagome."
Shippo left it as no question. He knew that the miko tended to attract youkai admirers like honey to flies. And from the miko's handling of him, looks like she was feeling something more than friendship for the blind youkai.
"What do you mean?"
"Just remember you have to deal with Sesshoumaru, he wouldn't want to give up his human that easily. He isn't that fond of humans he has only tolerated 3 throughout his history, InuYasha's mother, a human girl, and Kagome. He zealously guards what is his."
"How do you know that old dog?"
"Sesshoumaru? I met him through his half brother. Apparently the shrine is on his birthright. The Goshinboku actually housed his body when he tried to go after the Shikon no Tama over 500 years ago. You know the shrine was built in honor of Shikon no Tama and its last guardian. That's also why Sesshoumaru feels so strongly about the demons looking for it. Its his father's legacy that he acts honorable about this. If youkai find out that home is the shrine built to honor the legend they might think that it is there and go after Jii-chan and kaa-san, and Souta."
Yusuke froze he never thought about it that way. "Shit! this is some mess. Don't worry Kagome. I won't let anything happen to them. I promised to protect you when we were little."
Kagome felt a small smile grace her face, "That you did. I hope Shippo-chan and Yomi will be okay."
"What is up with you and him? He was not normal when I saw you two. He normally never smiles that much. And that punk-ass kitsune."
Kagome's smile turned into a full blown case of giggles, "You really are a lot like InuYasha, cousin mine. Shippo and I have known each other for a long time. Seems like forever. I met him when I was 15. But I don't know what you mean about Yomi. He seems like a nice guy."
"Nice guy? And do you think that bow and those arrows are going to protect you from some of the more stubborn youkai?"
She looped her arm through Yusuke's "Well, good thing you are here to protect me."
Yomi had to admit to himself the kitsune was not a bad travel companion. Once they clarified that Shippo was not interested in Kagome in any way other than familial. They traveled along in relative silence. The only noise was the thundering steps of the youkai they were trailing.
But the three they were trailing set up camp for the night and Shippo and Yomi set their camp up far enough that they could not smell them but within distance of Yomi hearing them and within sight of the smoke of their campfire. "So who is that Spirit detective and why is he so protective of Kagome, I thought InuYasha's over protectiveness was bad."
"Yusuke is apparently Kagome's cousin."
Shippo cursed under his breath, "Sesshoumaru is going to have a field day over that. He doesn't want Reikai knowing about the last miko."
"Miko? Kagome's an actual miko?"
Shippo cursed again, he didn't mean for that information to be out. "She seems to trust you. So I'm going to trust you to not inform anyone. If that toddler gets a hold of Kagome; he's going to turn her into his weapon."
Yomi didn't like the thought of Kagome being forced to kill. She seemed the sort to value life. "I am more honorable than to betray a confidence."
Shippo nodded, "She doesn't like people knowing because of those old animosities. She isn't like the other mikos in the past. She fell in love with a hanyou and befriended youkai left and right. She believes a person's actions make them good or evil not if they are youkai or human."
Kagome pulled out an arrow and armed her bow. "What are you doing, Kagome"
"I sense youkai, Yusuke. Do you sense it?"
"I don't sense anything. Are you okay?"
Before Kagome could respond, she was grabbed by the throat and slammed into a tree with a shorter youkai holding her up, "Onna how could you sense me. Speak now or I'll put you out of the misery that is your race."
"Hiei, what the fuck? Let her go! I don't want to have to fight you."
A female walked into the field and eyed her general, "Hiei, I suggest you let go of her before she makes you."
He scoffed at the woman he sensed no spirit energy from, "She is no challenge I could kill her faster than she could blink."
He was suddenly thrown back by a blast of holy-ki. "I never understood why youkai like to underestimate me. You seem to be a friend of Mukuro-chan and Yusuke or I would have eliminated you."
Shippo's head jerked up at that flare of Kagome's energy, "Shit, Kagome's under attack."
Yomi replied, "That energy attracted the attention of those we are following. They are discussing going after it. But one made mention to stick with the plan and wait for the others to get there."
Shippo cursed, "Why wasn't her cousin protecting her, I thought I heard the Toushin was tough. I want to go after her but I don't want to leave these guys. And I don't want to let you out of my sight."
"Does that have to do with your inablilty to trust me."
"No, Kagome, asked me to keep you safe. That's the only reason I haven't left you to check on her."
Their conversation was interrupted by a flair of what Yomi recognized as Yusuke's energy, "Yusuke will finish off whatever threat was there. Now the demon's have decided waiting there would be the best bet. They believe that flair would have killed whatever that energy source was."
Hiei got up again but Yusuke kept his finger on the hybrid, "Friend or not. I'm not letting you hurt my cousin."
Hiei paused shocked, he never knew that Yusuke had family outside of the alcoholic mother. He sheathed his sword, "Hn."
Kagome peered from over Yusuke's shoulder at Hiei, but before Kagome could greet the demon; Mukuro interrupted, "What brings you here Kagome and Yusuke. Though I would have to guess it is about the Shikon no Tama."
Kagome nodded grimly, "That it is. I wish I were here under more pleasant…"
"BITCH! What are you doing here?"
Kagome sighed, she should have known InuYasha would come running after her burst of miko-ki. "InuYasha, how nice to see you too. Can you be a dear and go where Shippo is. He found a group of demon who found the shrine in Ningenkai and are planning on storming the barrier in an attempt to get the jewel. I'm sure they are waiting for the other youkai to meet up with those from Yomi's kingdom."
"You worried about the runt?"
Kagome placed her hand on his shoulder, having left her position from behind Yusuke, "He is taller than you InuYasha. But yes, I am worried for Shippo and for Mukuro's sanity. I'm certain you and Mukuro-chan have been driving each other up a wall."
The two newcomers to the dynamic that was Kagome, Mukuro and InuYasha's friendship froze as a sound they have never heard came from the scarred demon. She was giggling like a school girl. "Kagome, it is always a pleasure to have you around. You should see if Sesshoumaru-sama will let you spend some time here. I would like to have you help with the healers of the palace. I'm certain they could use some help. We have dealt with some casualties with some of my subjects having delusions of getting their hands on the Shikon no Tama."
Frowning she made to apologize but Mukuro stopped her, "It is not your fault, Kagome-chan. No one died but there are several injured. So if you could be so kind as to lend us your healing powers I would be grateful."
Kagome nodded and quickly strode after Mukuro on the way to the palace.
Shippo groaned to himself, it was almost sunrise and he was bored damnit! When he travel with Kagome she kept him entertained but Yomi was just sitting silently listening to the youkai that he couldn't even listen to. "Damn lucky youkai with good hearing. I'm bored."
Yomi sighed, "If you are bored why don't you entertain yourself. Why not tell me a story about when you and Kagome-san first met."
"She doesn't like being called -san. But I don't think I should tell you that until I get Kagome's approval. Why not tell you one of my favourite memories. When I used to disguise myself as a kit." 'No need for him to know I was actually a kit.'
"Kagome took me in after helping me get revenge on those that killed my father. She and InuYasha took me in, believing I was nothing more than a small kit. Kagome loves her baths. I'm not certain if you noticed that in the day she stayed with you. She always smells nice. Back in those days I used to believe that Kagome and InuYasha were going to be together. They are soul mates after all. InuYasha's love back when he was interested in going after the Shikon no Tama was a priestess named Kikyo who died as a result of an evil hanyou seeking the cursed jewel for himself. We discovered 500 some years later that Kikyo was reincarnated into Kagome. But anyways back to them taking me in. Kagome used to put on a bathing suit because we were travelling with a monk of less than pious repute. And take me to bathe with her in the hot tubs. She would entertain me with fairy tales. But I tell you this to let you know how she looks while in a hot tub. Her skin flushed from the heat. Her long black hair pulled up into a sloppy bun. The blue suit bringing out the blue of her eyes; making them glow slightly. Her bosom heaving from having to throw a rock at the perverted monk to knock him out."
Yomi shifted as the kitsune began painting more and more graphic picture of Kagome in a swimsuit soaking in a hot tub. "I wish I could see her. I never wanted to be able to see as much as I do now before."
He didn't mean to make the king covet sight when he was telling Yomi about Kagome's bathing habits. Hopefully, this won't come back to bite him in the ass. Shippo was about to let the demon know that coveting being able to see would put him at risk of being drawn in by the jewel's corruptive power when Yomi interrupted, "The other demons have all shown up. Apparently they want to make a break in the barrier at first light. They seem to believe that they will need to be at full strength. And someone is coming to our camp right now."
InuYasha jumped into the area where Shippo and the king were, "Runt, Kagome wanted me to show up to save your sorry ass."
Shippo snorted, "You were driving Mukuro nuts again. I think she is really concerned about Yomi here. She seems to like him. She asked me to keep an eye on him to make sure he stays safe. Must think I may need some help doing so. They all look to be S-class."
InuYasha looked the blind king up and down, "So she likes him now. Feh. What do I care."
Yomi stood up his ears twitching in irritation, here was a crasser Yusuke and he was already frustrated from Shippo's storytelling. "InuYasha is it. My name is Yomi, king of Makai. The conspirators have all gathered. I believe it would be most beneficial for us to encircle them and then eliminate them. They outnumber us 4 to 1."
Koenma sucked his pacifier nervously, he had just gotten his report from Yusuke and Kurama. Apparently Sesshoumaru was putting a stop to any attempt to locate the jewel and that his general and Yomi had killed a group of demons who were about to breach the barrier. That coupled with rumors of a flare up of miko-ki last month in Makai, led to his sucking his pacifier like it's his last lifeline. His father is going to spank him raw if he doesn't complete this mission soon or at least show some progress in something.
He had sent the ogre assistant into the filing room looking up everything to do with the Shikon no Tama, mikos and Sesshoumaru. "We really need to update our Filing system to match this century. Computers would probably have made the hunt easier for Geogre."
Continuing his musings, he reflected on what Hiei told him, that Yusuke and Kurama had both gone to Mukuro's palace and even more troubling Yomi was at her palace as well. If he wasn't so certain that Yusuke was a good guy he would have been freaking out. But thankfully he could trust Yusuke. And of the human member of the team, "I need to get a status update from Kuwabara. Perhaps he has found something useful."
Kagome continued putting the different vegetables into the pot at the middle of the kotatsu. Sitting down she yelped slightly at a hand brushing against her thigh. Hiei looked at low table critically, still haven't moved from his spot against the wall, "Why are we doing this again, onna?"
"Its tradition to do so when it's cold out; besides its fun to eat together like this. And the blanket keeps us warm while we wait for the Oden to finish."
Yusuke groaned from his position in between Yomi and Kagome. His temper still a little short after the latest spat he had with his fiancée and watching Kagome give Yomi little looks. It was obvious that something was going on between the two but he was having none of it while he was there. Kagome was his baby cousin; his to protect from corrupt demon like Yomi. And speaking of corrupt demon he felt a hand brush past him on its quest, he just knew, to Kagome's leg yet again. Murmuring low enough so that Kagome couldn't hear, he warned Yomi to control himself.
Yomi merely slid his hand back in his lap and smirked, he knew he shouldn't do anything but Kagome smelt so delicious when she was flustered. It was a scent he grew to love the month he's been around her. His mind returned to when he, the hanyou and Shippo had killed all the gathered youkai, plotting to steal the Shikon no Tama. A jewel he had no interest in, until he met the miko. He had to admit to himself he has wondered what it would be like having his sight back; a sentiment Yomi shared with no one, especially Kagome. He couldn't imagine her being disappointed in him after the lavish praise she's reaped upon his person for turning down the temptation that was the jewel.
With a critical eye on the Oden she announced it finished and proceeded to let the others dig in. She reasoned she got to regularly enjoy this with her family while she knew the demons and her cousin didn't have the luxury. Thinking on how Yusuke was raised, she couldn't help the flash of annoyance at her aunt. She had improved on the drinking and the partying now that Yusuke was older but in the miko's opinion it was too little too late. Yusuke was forced to grow up so young in life. Now he was stuck as a lapdog to Reikai looking for a jewel in Ningenkai when he wasn't too busy meddling in her love life.
Kagome shifted guiltily. She knew she should tell Yusuke that the jewel was somewhere safe but recalling the looks of horror at the mere idea of Higurashi Shrine being connected to anything dangerous and that was just the fact that it was built to honor the Legend…her Legend. She couldn't imagine telling him that she was putting them all in danger just by being there. That the pink bauble wasn't a bauble anymore. That she merged with the Shikon no Tama and became one with it. She should confess that she WAS the Shikon no Tama but Yusuke had explained that Koenma was looking for it to lock it up safe. She did not want to spend the rest of her long life in some prison or safe in Reikai never to see her family. At the idea of not being able to see people, she had to admit that Yomi's face appeared at the forefront of those she would miss most.
With that concludes Part 1 of 2 on this quaint little Yomi/Kagome Fic. I was asked to write this for animeangel088. Normally I don't consider requests due to fears of disappointing but she asked so nicely I couldn't help but agree.
The story so far spans 13 pages on Word and with the way things are looking part 2 will be just as long.
I know I should have completely finished the story but I wanted animeangel088 to know I didn't forget about her request.
I have a Riku/Sora blurb in the works as well as a GreenLantern(DC Universe)/InuYasha story in the works (just waiting to hear back from an author if I could borrow an idea from her) Foreign Exchange I have the next chapter 90% done but I also have 2 chapters of a Neville alternate arch where it's the story but Longbottom gets the girl finished. Most of the next chapters of Discoveries and Revelations and Family Matters are done as well.
