Hello, everyone! This is my latest creation! Why make another fic when my hands are already full with my other story, Sesshomaru's Red Eyes? The answer is quite simple. I was curious to see how many Sesshomaru/Sango fics there were out there in comparison to some other pairings. I knew that Ses/Kag fics outnumbered it by a lot, but I didn't expect there to be 58 pages of it! Kagura/Ses also outnumbered it, by two pages. Thank God, it beat Kikyou/Ses! And for Ayume/Ses there are literally only a couple of stories. So, I got pretty peeved that such an awesome pairing is so highly disregarded that I'm fighting back with another story. This one won't be an epic that's crazy long, like SRE, but it will have shorter chapters, so hopefully I will be able to update this one more often. And now I'm done rambling on, so I'll just let you all read. I hope you enjoy it!

All's Fair in Love and…Music?
A New Bass Player
"You will not have your way this time, Little Brother."
"The hell if I won't, Sesshomaru!"
Myoga jumped onto InuYasha's nose, "What's all this? Don't tell me you're fighting again?"
"Myoga, tell this pampered little prince here that it's my turn to use the basement for practice!" InuYasha whined.
"I miss the point where a flea has the right to give this Sesshomaru orders."
"I was put in charge in your father's absence," Myoga reminded them for what must have been the thousandth time, "If I don't do a good job well…" Here, Myoga shuddered, "I don't want to think about it."
"Why do you want the basement so bad, Little Brother?"
"It's sound-proofed of course."
"You must be afraid that others will have to hear how horrible your little "band" is if you use the garage," Sesshomaru stated smugly.
"Listen here, you stupid bastard," InuYasha began.
Myoga jumped up and down with frustration, "Oh, how am I supposed to take a whole summer of this?! It's only been two weeks, and I think I've already taken two years off my life because of it!"
"Feh, Why do you need the basement so badly, anyways?"
"I need it because we are to hold tryouts for a new bass player today."
"And none of the other idiots in your band can have it at they're place? Not Battousi? Not Naraku?"
"No, they are unable at this current time. What about your pathetic friends? Are they not capable of having one single session away from here so that I may not have to hear the noise?"
"Their names are Miroku, Kagome, and Sango, and no, they aren't able to have it. Their parents won't let them. So I guess that means it has to be here."
Myoga slapped a hand to his forehead, "Who had the basement last time?"
At this, Sesshomaru smirked triumphantly. He knew what that meant.
InuYasha growled out of frustration, "I did," he said softly.
"Then that settles it. Next time, take turns instead of fighting. It would save me a great deal of trouble." With that, Myoga hopped off.
'Damn,' InuYasha thought, 'I told everyone that we'd have the basement today. And then, when they come-' His thoughts were cut off by the sound of the doorbell ringing. "Damn it!" InuYasha answered the door.
"Hey, Inu!" Kagome said cheerfully, and scratched his left ear. Miroku grinned at him and Sango greeted him with her usual nod. Four other people were there too. InuYasha recognized his younger cousin, Mina, and her boyfriend, Shippou. Sango's brother, Kohaku was there too, along with his girlfriend, Rin.
"What the hell are they doing here? Are we babysitting or something?"
"Give it a rest, InuYasha," Shippou said, "Just because you're going to be juniors and we're going to be freshmen, it doesn't mean you have to be such a jerk!"
InuYasha rolled his eyes, "Yeah, sorry, I forgot," he stated sarcastically.
"They're here," Kagome said dangerously, "Because they can tell us if we sound okay. Just so we can get an outsider's point of view."
"Who the hell's dumb ass idea was that?"
"It was mine," Sango spoke up. She held her notebook that she always kept with her to her chest, "So you'll just have to deal with it." With that, she walked in.
"Sango, what the hell can be so important about that notebook that you keep it with you all the time?" InuYasha asked.
"That's just none of your business, InuYasha."
"Is it porn?" the hanyou asked.
Miroku put a hand to his chin in a thoughtful expression, "That's what I thought it was too…"
InuYasha was sat and Miroku was slapped.
"Just a thought, Sango," Miroku said apologetically.
"Let's just get to work," Sango said as she opened the basement door.
"Uh, Sango, I wouldn't-" InuYasha started.
Sango ran straight into Sesshomaru. She dropped her notebook. It fell with a smack to the floor.
"Look where you're going," Sesshomaru said coldly. His eyes fell on the notebook that lay on the ground. Sango saw this and snatched it up protectively. Sesshomaru's eyes narrowed, "Don't be so jumpy, I'm sure that nothing that is inside that notebook would interest me in the slightest."
"Like I would really care," she shot back venomously.
Sesshomaru just glared at her one last time and then answered the door again, this time, for his band mates.
Naraku pushed rudely through InuYasha and his group of friends, "I was not aware that so many idiots would come to try out," he said, looking all amongst them. His eyes fell on the freshmen, particularly, Mina, "By the looks of it, some of them appear to still need diaper changes."
"For your information," Mina said, as a matter-of-factly, "We wouldn't try out for such an untalented band even if we could play instruments!"
"Somehow I doubt that," Naraku said, still glaring at her with dislike.
"Stupid seniors," Shippou said under his breath.
"Care to say that again, more loudly and clearly?" Naraku questioned.
"Naraku, do not sink to such a level," Battousi said calmly, "We are here to choose a bass player, nothing more." He stepped up. He was right behind Kagome, "Excuse me," he breathed.
Kagome visibly blushed and allowed him to pass. "Yeah…sure, Battousi," she answered quietly.
InuYasha twitched. There was something about his cousin that really made him want to slug him right in the face.
"I don't think I've ever seen so many arrogant people in one room," Sango stated, glaring at Sesshomaru.
"Surely, you must mean talented," Battousi said with raised brows.
"No, I meant arrogant," she said again as she began to descend the basement stairs.
"Where do you think you're going?" Sesshomaru asked icily, "The basement is ours today." All three members of Sesshomaru's band had identical smirks.
"You mean, we have the garage?" Miroku whined, "InuYasha, it's 95 degrees out today!" (A/N: I mean 95 degrees Fahrenheit. I'm from America, and I guess we're all too damn stubborn here to change to an easier system, so…Sorry, but I don't know what that would be in metric.)
"Tough it out for once, Miroku!" InuYasha snapped.
"We'll put the fan on, it'll be okay," Kagome reassured.
"Perhaps I shall just have to take my shirt off," Miroku said slyly, looking giving Sango a smirk.
"Oh please, Miroku," she said, blushing, "None of us wants to see that!"
"Nobody…except for you," he returned, snaking his arm around her waist.
"Miroku," Sango said sharply, "Stop it."
"Okay, fine," Miroku said. He looked crestfallen about it too, "Let's just go."
Sango looked a little guilty, but said, "I agree."
"Finally," Sesshomaru stated, "Get out of our sight."
"Come on, InuYasha," Kagome said, pulling him by the ear to the garage. She knew that he was ready to jump at his brother at any moment.
They all got there and began warming up.
Rin's head turned to the side at the sound of such odd sounds that didn't fit together properly.
"They're tuning up their instruments," Kohaku said, "They do that just to warm up."
"Ohhh, Rin sees," she answered, "Rin has never been around a band before. Isn't this exciting, Kohaku?!" She said, grinning up at him.
"Yeah, it sure is. Sister practices all the time, I know she's really good, but I haven't heard them all together yet."
Soon, sounds of blasting music could be heard from inside the house. It was getting very late and no one was coming. Sesshomaru shook his head in an annoyed manner, "Whoever is coming, they are late. Naraku, do you know of anyone who said they were coming?"
Naraku smirked, "No. Even if I did, there are still not that many people around that play bass anymore. It seems that the only thing everyone around wants to play is guitar and drums, bass fades into the background."
"Nor did I hear of anyone," Battousi said.
The basement door opened.
"But someone has come to try out now."
The three watched as he walked down the stairs, bass in hand….
…It was none other than Jaken!
He stood before them and cleared his throat. He then spotted Sesshomaru and bowed deeply. Sesshomaru gave the other two annoyed looks.
Battousi half smiled, "Go on, play, if that's what you came here to do."
Battousi received a death glare from his cousin. How dare he tell Jaken that he could proceed!
Jaken cleared his throat again, "Certainly, yes!" he said croakily, "I even have words written for my composition! Here it is!"
Will you ever accept me, my dearest?
Will you let me tend to your every whhhhiiiimmm?! (here, Jaken screeched unpleasantly)
Will you let my brush your silver locks?!
I think you're hot! Let's never part!
Jaken yelled as he was chucked from the house. He flew many yards before he fell in the middle of the street with a plop and was almost hit by a passing SUV. "Ahhhhhhhh! Sesshomaru-sama! Helllpppp meeeee!" he cried as he just barely got out of the way.
"Pity he didn't get hit," Sesshomaru said coldly. Battousi stood there with a very satisfied look on his face. "You think it funny?" Sesshomaru said in a dangerously calm voice.
Naraku was also having difficulties as far as trying not to laugh went. "Get out," Sesshomaru said finally.
"At least you got the pleasure of throwing him out," Battousi said, his half smile still in place. Sesshomaru let his band members out and then sat down. If they weren't willing to be serious about this, he didn't want to deal with them. He then noticed what was missing, his brother's pathetic band had stopped playing. Instead he heard one thing playing…
It actually sounded good.
Everyone was taking a break from playing to eat the sandwiches that Kagome packed for them all. Sango alone remained playing her bass.
"Come eat, Sango. Aren't you hungry?" Kagome asked politely.
"Not really hungry right now, sorry, Kagome. I just feel like experimenting." She continued to play while they all ate, which took them about 20 minutes. Little did they all know, Sesshomaru was listening to Sango play from inside the house the entire time. When they all finished eating, they left.
"Oh no!" Sango half yelled when she parked in her driveway.
"What is it, Sis?"
"My notebook! I forgot it at InuYasha's house! I have to go back and get it! Tell Dad I'll be right back!"
"Okay, Sango, but hurry."
"Yeah, I will!" With that, she sped off.
Sesshomaru looked about the garage, "What a mess my brother and his sloppy friends make," he said, clearing rubbish from off of his car. "If it is scratched, I will make them all pay." Then he saw Sango's notebook on top of the trunk. He picked it up, curious, and opened it. His eyes became wide. 'So,' he thought, 'She plays well and writes music? Perhaps I can find a good use for her…'
"What are you doing with my notebook?!" Sango blurted out from behind him.
The first chapter and I'm already writing small cliffhangers! Sorry, everyone! Hope you liked this chapter, and this was my first shot at an AU, so please review and tell me what you think! (puppy dog eyes)
