Miko From Another World
Ch.7 "The Rain"
Later that Day
"Yep," sighed Kagome happily as the mismatched group took a quick rest from traveling. "Just another day in Fuedal Japan. Sango is slapping Miroku. Shippo and Rin are playing. InuYasha and Sesshomaru are glaring at each other.
Jaken is tending to Ah-Un. Kirara is napping. Vegeta is talking with Gohan...wait, Gohan!" She rubbed her eyes and looked again to make sure that she wasn't hallucinating.
Sure enough, there standing in the clearing talking with Vegeta was Gohan. It seemed that everyone else noticed the half saiyan at the exact same time she did. Everyone in the clearing froze and stared at the new comer.
"Who are you?" demanded InuYasha.
Kagome noticed that her friends were slowly moving into a fighting stance. She didn't know what came over her, but she didn't want Gohan to get hurt. So she stepped forward.
"Hey Gohan," she called cheerily. "What are you doing here?"
"You know," replied Gohan. "I really don't know." He laughed and scratched the back of his head.
"It must have been the same way Vegeta got here," said Kagome. "Well, you're here now so you might as well stay."
"What?" cried InuYasha. "No way!"
Kagome just sighed and said, "Sit boy." Than she smiled at Gohan and said, "Come on! I'll introduce you to everyone."
With that, she grabbed his and led him over to the rest of the group. She gestured at everyone with her free hand and said, "Everyone, this is Gohan. Gohan, this is Sango, Miroku, Shippo, InuYasha, Lord Sesshomaru, Rin, Jaken, Ah-Un, Kirara and you already know Vegeta."
Everyone nodded when their names were called. InuYasha crossed his arms over his chest and said, "Can we start looking for more shards now?"
Gohan narrowed his eyes at InuYasha slightly, but didn't say anything. "Sure," chirped Kagome happily. "I think we've all rested long enough!"
So the group grew by one more as they headed off to find more shards. Now this was an interesting sight. Two full blooded saiyans and a half saiyan traveling in Sengoku Jidai with a bunch of youkai, a monk, a youkai slayer and a hanyou. A very interesting sight indeed!
They had only been traveling for a few hours when, "I sense two jewel shards heading this way!" cried Kagome. Her shout caused the entire group to go into a fighting stance.
But it was just a false alarm. For a whirlwind came charging towards the group which revealed itself to be Koga, the wolf youkai prince.
Kagome sighed when she saw Koga. –Great, just what I needed!- she thought, but she put on a happy face anyways. "Konnichi Wa Koga-kun!"
"Kagome! Are you ready to come and be my women?" called Koga in his gruff voice as he strode up to Kagome and grabbed her hands.
Kagome sweat dropped, but before she could say anything, "Unhand my sister!" cried Vegeta as he placed himself between Koga and Kagome. Gohan was right on his heels, glaring at the wolf prince.
"Who are you?" demanded Koga.
"This is my elder brother, Vegeta," chimned Kagome. "And this is my good friend and training buddy, Gohan. Vegeta, Gohan? This is Koga."
Koga smiled a wolfish grin and said, "I'm happy to meet any member of my future mate's family."
"Koga-kun," said Kagome with an exasperated sigh. "I'm not your woman or your future mate. I will never be those things!"
Of course Koga didn't hear any of the negatives in Kagome's little speech. He rushed up to her and grabbed her hands once more. Vegeta, Gohan and InuYasha looked absolutely livid at this sight.
"Unfortunately I can't take you with me to our future home Kagome. I am on a very important mission for the wolf tribes. But I will return for you," he said. Than he shouted at InuYasha, "You better take good care of my woman dog breath!" Then he disappeared in a whirlwind as he took off heading towards the east.
Vegeta, Gohan and InuYasha glared at his retreating form. "So, who was that?" grumbled Vegeta to his little sister.
"That was Koga," sighed Kagome. "He likes to think that I'm his 'woman.' He's harmless really."
"You call that harmless?!" exploded Vegeta. "How can you let him treat you like that? You, a princess of a superior race?"
"Vegeta calm down! It's not as if I'm actually 'his woman'," replied Kagome in what would have been a calm tone if it weren't for the underlying anger.
But before the siblings could get into another fight, thunder clapped overhead and lightning streaked across the sky. No sooner had the group looked up, startled by the sudden noise and flash of light, then the rain started to fall.
"Quick everyone! Get inside!" cried Kagome while tossing out her house capsule once more. The group rushed into the house as the rain started to fall harder.
It started as a slight drizzle. But in a matter of minutes the intensity, speed and quantity of the rain had increased. "We'll stay here till the rain stops," said Kagome as she settled on a windowsill to watch the rain fall in sheets down the window pain.
T: I know, I know! A really short chapter after a long wait. Once again I'm terribly sorry!
WB: Blame the muse; she disappeared for all those months.
T: I couldn't write a dang thing that had to do with any of my current fanfics!
Sephi: pats Thesta on the back It's all right love. At least you've updated.
Miko: is curled up on the other side of the room Everyone hates me now! Now that I bring tones of fresh new ideas!
T: Oh hush you. No one hates you! We're just not pleased with you that's all. I'm already working on the next chapter and I promise it'll be a lot longer! And hopefully I can get it out in under a month.
WB: Keep reading, look forward to the next chapters and don't forget to review!
