When Somebody Loved Me

A/N: I don't feel like I did this justice. I mean, the thought of this song mixed with Sesshomaru in my head made something like a video, and it nearly made me cry. It just feels like it's not as good as I think it could be. Maybe I'll edit it some later. Oh well. The Song is "When Somebody Loved Me" By Sarah Mclachlan.

Oh and sorry to my How and Why people. I'm just getting into my exam work. Then I'm going on vacation after school. I'm soooo slow!

Bold italics=Sesshomaru's thoughts.

Regular text= Song lyrics.

Human emotions should never be instilled in demons.

When somebody loved me,

Everything was beautiful

Yet they were.

Even if they are, demons shouldn't have such a long memory.

Every hour we spent together lives within my heart

And when she was sad,

I was there to dry her tears

And when she was happy

So was I

Rin had a very good smile.

For a human anyway.

When she loved me

Through the summer and the fall

We had each other, that was all

Just she and I together,

like it was meant to be.

We had many good years together.

She was such a smart little thing.

Overly optimistic, perhaps.

But, always welcome none the less.

And when she was lonely

I was there to comfort her

And I knew that she loved me

Even that first time I helped her.

That happy smile when her face was all bruised up.

It seems almost too unfair.

So the years went by

I stayed the same

But she began to drift away

I was left alone

Still I waited for the day

When she'd say I will always love you

She married Kohaku and settled down.

She visited less and less as her family grew beyond me.

That boy was always terrified of me. Demon slayer, as he used to be.

Years passed in a few blinks of an eye.

And she grew old and brittle, as I never will.

Lonely and forgotten

I'd never thought she'd look my way

Then one day my little brother appeared before my castle.

The woman demon slayer with her brother.

And my little girl.


And she smiled and held me

just like she used to do

She hugged me and called me Sesshomaru-sama.

With a big smile across her face.

But she wasn't little.

She was old.


She could have been my grandmother if I were human.

Like she loved me

When she loved me

Now she's gone.

She and Kohaku have both died.

The priestess

The slayers.

The monk.



Even my damned brother.

My little girl.

How dearly I miss

When somebody loved me

Everything was beautiful

Every hour we spent together lives within my heart

When she loved me
