At Home In The Past


Chapter 1: perfect life


I opened my eyes to see the sun rising just outside the window, its soft beams lighting the room.

I jumped when I felt something move beside me. When I rolled over I was met with a pale face surrounded by long silver hair.


I smiled softly. He looked so peaceful in his sleep. I was tempted to trace the crescent moon on hid forehead with my finger, but I knew that would only wake him up.

You are probably wondering….what the hell am I doing in his bed right?

After he had come after me when I tried to get back to my own time, he had told me that he loved me. My heart still sped up when I thought about it.

I ran my hand along my neck and felt the two small puncture holes where he had bit me. He had told me that it was a symbol that I was his and he was mine. It was cute, but a wedding would have been fine too…

Yawning I started to get up when I felt his arm go around my waist and pull me back down.

I looked down at his face to see his two beautiful amber eyes staring at me.

"You were watching me," he whispered softly.

I smirked, "maybe."

He smirked softly and leaned over to kiss me. I felt a shiver go through me when our lips met.

When he pulled back I smiled, "I have to go and get Rin up."

He shook his head and pulled me closer to his bare chest, "No. That is why we have servants."

I sighed.

Oh well…

I breathed in his intoxicating sent.

…I'm not complaining.


I pulled her closer to me, not wanting to let her go. I had let her go once, and there was no way that I would ever do that again.

When I was with Megan, I felt so at peace. And I wanted that peace all to myself.

I had made her my mate. She didn't understand it at first so I had to explain it. Someday she will have to explain what a wedding is…

When I asked her to be mine part of me screamed, what the hell are you doing.

I hadn't expected me to fall for her. She was a human after all. A long time ago I had sworn to myself that I would always hate them. Rin was the first human who started to change my mind. She had always been so happy and cheerful, so naive. But it was Megan who truly opened my eyes. She showed my that human's weren't as weak as I thought they were. They felt such strong emotions that I have still yet to experience.

I kissed her temple and she giggled softly.

"I really should get up Sesshy," she kissed me softly.

I growled. Sesshy. How I hate that nickname…but for her I will bear it…for now…

She struggled in my grasp but I held tightly onto her thin waist. She groaned in protest. Suddenly here foot came out and kicked my knee.

"Owww," I said mockingly.

She grinned and tried again but I wrapped one of my legs around hers so she couldn't move at all now.

"Hey! That's not fair!" she squealed.

"Nothing is fair my love."

She looked up at me. When I looked into her eyes I couldn't quite figure out what emotion I saw there. Love and…something else.

She suddenly pressed her lips against mine, forcing her tongue in my mouth.

I love it when she tries to dominate…

I felt my muscles go weak. She always does this to me, and I can't seem to figure out how… All it takes is one kiss and I am helpless. And I hated and yet loved that feeling…

And then suddenly, she escaped from my grasp and rolled off the bed and hurried to the door where she smirked at me.

"That wasn't fair," I growled.

"Nothing is fair my love," she quoted me.

Smirking I made a lunge for her but she was already out the door. I could have caught her using my demon powers if I wanted to…but she was right I suppose. It was time to get up.


Hahahahaha. The kiss and dash. Works every time… sucker. He has NO defense to my tactics from the future! MUHAHAHAHAHA!


Pulling myself together I walked into Rin's room. She was sitting in the middle of the floor playing with two cloth dolls. When she saw me her face lit up and she ran into my open embrace.

"Good morning big sister!" she beamed, "I was wondering when you would get up! Nanny said that you and Lord Sesshomaru were 'getting to know each other' and I couldn't interrupt. why couldn't I?"

My face must have turned about a hundred shades of red.

…not too tactful now is the little ball of sunshine?

"Um. Well because…" I trailed off.


Nobody did…

"Well Rin… I was, ah… telling Sesshomaru about…um…well… my home country!" I blurted out.

She wrinkled her nose, "that sounds boring. Well at least it's better then sucking face like I saw you two doing in the garden that one time. That looked gross."


OMFG she saw me and Sesshomaru kissing!

Can I go die now?

"Can Rin ask you something?"

I nodded awkwardly.

Can't be worse then what she just said…

"I was wondering, where do babies come from?" she smiled.

I swear…this world hates me!


Megan and Rin walked into the dinning hall a while later. Rin looked like she was thinking of something, and she kept looking back and forth between myself and Megan. Megan herself looked as though she wanted to crawl into a corner and hide.

"What is wrong Megan?" I asked softly.

She looked up at me and leaned over so that Rin couldn't hear.

"Rin asked me where babies come from…" she said.

I felt my cheeks twinge red.

"What did you tell her?" I asked.

Her face flushed, "I tried the 'birds and the bees' but she said that you told her that and she knew you were lying. So I …ah …"

"You told her the truth!"

"What the hell was I supposed to do? I didn't tell her the WHOLE truth!"

Rin cleared her throat and we both looked at her.

"Yes Rin?" I asked.

"Are you two going to make babies?" she asked, "could I play with them?"

May the soul be sucked out of me…please.


I sniggered.

You should have seen the look on Sesshomaru's face! Never, have I seen so much shock and horror in one facial expression EVER!

But then of course I realized that the question was also directed at me…

"Why would you ask that Rin?" Sesshomaru asked softly.

Good question!

Rin blushed, "Rin has seen you two kissing. Megan told me that that is part of how babies are made."

Well at least she didn't use the word 'suck face' this time…

Hahaha. Suck face…what a word...or words.

"Well…" Sesshomaru looked at me, "Perhaps in the future."

I felt my stomach knot.


I love them…but … I'm still a teenager!


I'm at my prime here!

Ok…deep breaths…

As soon as everyone finished lunch I headed out to the garden to relax. The sun was already high in the sky and the fountain of Sesshomaru and his mother left long shadows across the short grassed lawn. I wondered how they got the grass so short…I mean…it's not like they had lawn movers…

I guess it's just one of life's little miracles…

Looking up in the sky I noticed a purple looking clouds in the distance.

Weird cloud…

It was moving this way slowly…

I licked my finger and lifted it into the air. The cloud was moving against the wind.

"That's no cloud," I whispered to myself.

The hairs on my arms began to stick up. There was something about that cloud that just wasn't right.

"Sesshomaru!" I called. Knowing that his sensitive hearing would pick up my voice.

He appeared seconds later in a flash of white and silver at my side. I wrapped my around his and looked up at him.

"What is it?" he said in his soft voice.

I pointed at the cloud.

"Something is coming," I said, "it looks like a cloud but it's moving against the wind. I have a bad feeling."

I could feel his muscles tense as he sniffed the air. I could hear a low growl build in his chest.

"Sesshomaru?" I whispered and he jolted back to reality like he had been dreaming, "what is it?"

He placed his hands on my shoulders and looked me in the eye. His molten amber eyes made my knees weak as they bore into my pale greens orbs.

"Sesshy?" I asked quietly.

"Something is coming," he said, "and I need you and Rin to hide until I come for you."

He leaned over and kissed me softly. His lips hovered over mine for a minute before he pulled away and reached for his sword on his hip.

"Sesshomaru! What's coming? I don't understand!"

I mean come on! Does he really need his SWORD to get rid of a cloud!

He looked at me over his shoulder, his face was set in battle mode.

"He is a powerful, bastard of a demon," he growled, "his name is Naraku."
