Inu Yasha, Shippo and Kirara landed on the ground.
"Where's the girl?" Miroku asks, looking around.
"In the tree," Inu Yasha replied, folding his arms across his chest.
"Why didn't you get her down?"
Shippo looks on, dejected.
I wonder if---it was a dream after all, he thought.
Suddenly, there was a flash of light coming from the tree.
"What the hell!" Inu Yasha cried out.
The wind picks up faster, as if a hurricane was coming through. Inu Yasha grabs Kagome, with Shippo in her arms, and pulled them down to the ground, protecting them. Miroku does the same for Sango and Kirara.
"What's going on?!?!" Kagome shouted.
"How the fuck would I know!" Inu Yasha shouted back.
The lake ripples roughly, crashing onto the shore. Water sprinkles over the group. Inu Yasha hugs Kagome tigher. Their hair flies along in the wind. Still, Inu Yasha and the group refuse to give up as they hold each other down.
The wind dies down slowly. Inu Yasha and Miroku waited a minute, then looked up. The lake has return to its tranquil state, and the light from the tree is gone. Kagome looks around, too, while Sango's face is still buried in Miroku's chest.
"Whathappened?" Inu Yasha said.
"I---I honestly don't know," Kagome replied, standing up. Shippo jumps out of Kagome's arms and looks around.
"Huh?" His eyes stop on a figure standing by the lake, facing them.
"I see something," he said. Inu Yasha and Kagome follow Shippo's gaze.
"It's---it's a girl," Kagome said, getting a better look at the figure.
The girl was standing there, her eyes closed, head facing the ground.
"She's beautiful," Miroku said.
I wonder if she'll bear my child, he thought.
If as reading his mind, Sango gets annoyed and hit Miroku in the back of the head with the hiraikotsu. Miroku falls to the ground with a big, ugly bump on his head.
"Don't---even---think about it," Sango growled, still annoyed.
She's so pretty, Shippo thought as he starts walking toward the girl.
"Where are you going?" Inu Yasha shouted. Shippo didn't reply. He was taken in by the girl.
"Come back!" Kagome shouted. Still no response.
Shippo stops in front of the girl. "Who are you?" he asked, looking up at her.
"My name...is Meika," the girl replied, looking up and opening her eyes. Shippo gasps as he looks into her violet eyes, hypnotized by its beauty.
Inu Yasha and the group runs up to Shippo. "What the hell have you done to Shippo?" Inu Yasha demands, shaking Shippo. "I want an---Huh?"
Inu Yasha looks up and see Meika's face. He started to blush, then he shook his head to avoiding teh blush coming across his face. He stands up and circles her, studying her. Meika looks at Inu Yasha, a little embarrassed.
Miroku runs to Meika and takes her hands in his. "You are so beautiful," Miroku proclaimed. "Will you bear my child?"
Meika looks surprised, then she smiles. "Okay," she said.
"Re---really?!?!" Miroku exclaims. Meika nods her head, giggling.
Inu Yasha stops behind Meika, looking at something. "Hmm," he said, raising an eyebrow.
"What's wrong, Inu Yasha?" Kagome asked.
"Finally, I found someone who will bear my child!" Miroku shouts happily.
"Unless you want a youkai[demon] child," Inu Yasha mutters.
"A youkai?" Kagome asks, surprised.
"What are you talking about?" Miroku said. "Meika's not a you---"
Meika raise her white tail, and Miroku sees it. His mouth drops wide open, and his eyes widen in disbelief. Miroku returns his gaze to Meika.
"You're a---youkai...." he said before he fainted.
"Miroku!" Sango cried, running to his side.
While Sango attempts to wake a dizzy from confusion Miroku, Inu Yasha turns to Kagome.
"Kagome," he said, "see if this girl have any jewel shards."
Kagome studies Meika, who was watching Kagome in wonder.
"What are you doing?" Meika asks, turing her head sideways.
"I see one!" Kagome exclaims.
"Where?" Inu Yasha asks.
"In the center of her emblem on her forehead."
"Well, it looks like I have to take her out."
Inu Yasha takes out the Tetsusaiga.
"I hope you've said your prayers, little girl."
"Inu Yasha!" Shippo cried out. "What are you doing?"
"I'm going to kill her," Inu Yasha replied.
"Why? She hasn't done anything."
Inu Yasha scoff. "I don't care. She has a jewel shard, and we need that shard more than she does."
He points the sword out at Meika. "Huh?!?!"
The Tetsusaiga didn't transform; it still remain in its normal state.
"The Tetsusaiga..." Kagome said.
"...didn't transform," Shippo finished.
Why won't the Tetsusaiga transform? Inu Yasha thought, narrowing his eyes. Maybe it's defective or something.
"Inu Yasha-sama!" a tiny voice cried out.
"I know that voice," Kagome said. "It sounds like---"
Inu Yasha walks to Meika and hold up her tail.
"Now what are you doing?" Meika asks.
Inu Yasha search her tail, looking for the source of the voice. "Well, well, Myoga," he said. "You're back."
"Huh?" Kagome and Shippo look at each other. "Myoga-san?"
"Inu Yasha-sama, it's been awhile," Myoga said.
"Looks who talking; you're the one who ran away from the last monster we fought."
Myoga grumbles under his breath. Meika pulls her tail to the front and stares down at Myoga.
"A flea?" she asked.
Myoga looks up at Meika. "Ah, yes. My name is Myoga. And you must be Meika."
Meika blinks twice. "How do you know my name?"
"I heard of you," Myoga replied.
Inu Yasha growls under his breath. I don't believe this, he thought.
"I'm outta here! I don't have time for this!" He shouts, then starting to go off.
"Inu Yasha-sama, this girl here is no ordinary youkai. In fact, she's a hanyou," Myoga said in a rush.
Inu Yasha's ears perk up, and he stops.
"A---hanyou?" he asked, turning around.
"Yes. Her mother was human, and rumors have it that her father was a demon."
"So," Kagome said, "Meika is a hanyou?"
Myoga jumps from Meika's tail to Inu Yasha's rosary. "Correct," he replied. "A fox hanyou, to be precise."
