Prompt used- #1

Kagome sat on the edge of the well, frozen by the sounds she could hear from the forest. It was coming nearer the crashing of trees, rumbling of the ground and the sharp sounds of power being expended. She perched undecided, wondering if she should see what the noise was or drop back into the well.  Oh wonderful she thought weighing her options in her mind.  Do I  A.  go back down into the well and pretend nothing is happening and wait for this,  whatever this ball of fun coming my way is, to vacate the area?  Or B.  do I let my natural and apparently masochist curiosity have its’ way and see what is causing this unwelcome disturbance? 


Compromising she opted to carefully position herself within the well, her hands tightly griping its edge, her feet maintaining a precarious foothold against the well walls vine covered side, while the top of her head and her eyes peeped over its lip.   Certain that her position prepared her for a quick get away, she thought to herself I may be instatiably, dangerously curious but my mama did not raise a fool!   


The sounds became almost deafening as the trees surrounding the bone eaters well’s little glen fell to the ground with a crash and a sizzle.  She felt the hairs on her arms and the back of her neck rise with the sheer magnitude of power rapidly coming her way.  Reconsidering her sanity or definite lack thereof she hoisted herself slightly more out of the well to get a better look.  Suddenly silence reigned over the area casting an eerie pall, while the air hummed with barely leased power.  Then from the burned felled trees she saw the overwhelming sight of Sesshoumaru emerge. 


His glowing form eclipsed everything around him, the silver white locks of his hair whipped around his face although there was no breeze to stir his tresses, his amber gold eyes burned with the fires of hell and from his fingertips glowed the neon green of his acid whip.  Kagome released an unconscious gasp as if seeing him truly for the first time, truly seeing the raw beauty of this perfect powerful creature.  As quietly as possible she lowered herself deeper into the well with only her eyes peering out, watching him with an almost morbid curiosity and breathless awe.   


She continued to observe him from her yet unnoticed hiding spot as he spun gracefully on his heel and sliced through yet another innocent tree.  She remained rooted to her spot transfixed by the elegant decimation only he could cause, watching as he destroyed yet another tree that lined the glen.  Finally he ceased his deadly dance of acid whips and sheer power. 


Her eyes focused on his form as he began to walk in a ...she searched for the right word...stomp!!! Each footfall was heavy and forceful as he began to uncharacteristically pace and then she heard him, his normally silky voice colored with anger,


“Damnable half-breed” stomp

“Waste of life” stomp

“Waste of time” stomp

“What was father thinking?” stomp, pivot, turn


“It’s my sword” he stopped and clenched his fist. 


Oh Kami, he’s throwing a temper tantrum, demon style, she couldn’t help herself, and a chuckle escaped her mouth.  Forgetting her precarious perch, on reflex she lifted a hand to cover her mouth.  Almost losing her balance completely she nearly lost her hold on the well and near plunged to her well not quite death but definitely to a broken ass as her feet struggled for footing.  Too busy minding her near fall she scrambled for moment finally securing a firm grasp on the edge of the well wall.  Blowing the hair from her eyes she looked up and found herself face to face with a very angry, very deadly dog demon. 


“Miko” he was close enough to her that his warm breath caressed her face with the utterance of the word. “What are you doing here?” his icy tone back in place as if the pure emotion she just witnessed never happened. 


“Ummm” she said from the safety of her little haven of stone.  “I was ummm...examining the structure of the well. It’s ummm very aahh unique?” Oh yeah Kagome nice one, she mentally berated herself, apparently the wheel is turning but the hamster is definitely dead.  


“You will say nothing of what you saw here.”  His tone brooked no disobedience.  He was not making a request, no, not ever from Sesshoumaru, it was a command. 


Raising her hackles she took offense to the order, after all she was not the one currently indulging in some kind of sibling rivalry fit.


“Why should I?”  She retorted with as much dignity and umbrage as one could when they are currently half hidden in a well with fingers aching painfully from maintaining their death grip hold on the rough stone. 


Reaching into the well he grabbed her with one hand by the collar of her sailor shirt and began to haul her out of the well.


“Because” he lifted her higher, “I” he brought her body completely out of the well, “wish” she was now eye to eye with him, “it” her feet were dangling over the well opening.  His eyes scorched her with barely repressed with emotion. 


“Well,” she said ungraciously as if she had really any choice in the matter, “when you put it that way...I guess I won’t say a word to anyone”. 


“Not that they would believe me anyway” she muttered under her breath.  He gave her body a little shake indicating he heard her little remark perfectly well.  Looking down at the magenta striped wrist holding her shirt she silently pleaded please don’t rip on me now trusty uniform.


 Hazarding a glance up at the demon that literally held her life in his hands, she looked into his eyes and saw for just an instant that little angry demon child within its depths. 


She sighed, never again would she see him quite the same way, because today she got a glimpse of an angry hurt little boy hidden so deeply inside the demon lord.  Even with his deadly intent written on his face she could not stop recalling the bitter tirade of jealous older brother and for a brief shining moment she almost understood the enigma standing before her. 


Uncaring of her precarious position dangling over the well and with complete seriousness she gave him her word,  “I will not tell anyone”.


With the smallest of smiles and with understanding shining in her eyes she completed her promise, “it’ll be our little secret”.


Satisfied that his small indiscretion would not go past the two of them, he hauled her body completely out of the well and dropped her unceremoniously to the ground.  Turning his back to her he started to walk away.


When he reached the fallen trees his temper had created, she called out, “Sesshoumaru, if it makes you feel any better,” she said in a sunny voice filled with humor, “Inuyasha pisses me off too”. 


And for the briefest of moments Sesshoumaru was tempted to smile.

Oh man, this was great! I love the new ending. Glad I could be of service. :) The little shake he gave her made me laugh--obviously he was still in tantrum mode, lol--and the almost-smile at the end was perfect. A moment of camaraderie through shared annoyance, hehe. I always figured it was something they could connect about. ^_~

lol. Sesshoumaru will always in my mind have that little hint of violence in him don't you think?

And yes, their mutual irratation is definitely something they have in common. And don't the best relationships have at least one common interest? XD
