Soul meets body
As he looked down into her brown eyes from where he stood holding her he couldn't help but smile. She looked so much like her mother and he knew that both women would be held dear to his heart this Christmas. He hadn't planned on becoming a father that night, and Kagome hadn't expected to be a mother either, but the two were secretly thrilled at the gift they got this Christmas. He saw his new daughter yawn and gently passed her to his wife. She held her and smiled, indicating the space next to her on the hospital bed. Sesshomaru took it cautious of the two precious bundles that lay in it.
"She doesn't look anything like you." Kagome muttered holding the Christmas child close to her.
"No matter." Sesshomaru stated softly brushing the blanket. He didn't say anything for a while as the two relaxed and basked in their daughter's presence. He was just happy- happy that the baby had her mother's eyes.
"She has your eyes." He stated, as their new daughter blinked up sleepily. The girl indeed did have her mother's gorgeous chocolate brown eyes. Eyes that could hold his soul and heart he realized as the baby yawned again.
"What should we name her?" Kagome brushed a finger against her daughter's soft cheek as she enjoyed the moment. She didn't want to interrupt the silence but she knew they had to name her soon.
"Rin." Kagome nodded, liking the name herself as she snuggled closer to her husband lost in thoughts of her own. As the room was once again wreathed in beautiful smiles and happiness Sesshomaru laid an arm around Kagome. He too was lost in thoughts of his own, thoughts of how to protect his two precious brown-eyed bundles for many Christmases to come.
