Since it has been a while, I'd like to remind you a few things:
Shirakume:</b> is Sesshoumaru's mother's name that I came up with for this story.
New characters from the previous chapter:
Kosame and Hakage: are Kureha's two handmaidens. Hakage has some awareness about Kureha's relationship to Sesshoumaru.
Kuchinagimaru: is Kureha's mate selected by the Orochi clan. He will lead the Orochi males under Kureha after her enthronement.
Inu no Taishou's plan against Ryukotsusei proceeded despite Sesshoumaru's opposition and Kureha's plea. Kureha returned to her stronghold with the scroll that Sesshoumaru had handed to her. Now Shirakume (Sessmom) expects Sesshoumaru to play a role. Meanwhile...

An Emergence 3An Emergence 38 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
This story directly continues from the previous story, "An Emergence 2".
I wanted to adopt the "two swords issue" into my Sesshoumaru centric narrative. I decided to play with the concept that Sesshoumaru's mother was a hidden mastermind who plotted challenges for Sesshoumaru. (particulary around forcing Sesshoumaru to discard Tenseiga.)
I'm using an idea from the Inuyasha movie 3, that Inupop's injury from a battle with Ryukotsusei added to his cause of his death when he went to rescue Izayoi while still being injured from the battle.
Anyway, the story will gradually get to that part as the conversation between Sessmom and Teiroushin continues.
An Emergence 3 : "A Conversation"
Sesshoumaru's mother went to a guest room of the palace to see Teiroushin, and found him in the corpse of a human boy sitting on a stool.
He looked like he was bundled in his oversize

Now everyone waits, while they all ponder their move from this point.
An Emergence 9: Waiting
Sesshoumaru and Teiroushin were led to one of the rooms where guests waited before being announced, on the same floor as the meeting hall.
It was an elegant room.
The Orochi, incorporated natural elements into their architecture. This created a feeling of being out in nature, even inside of a room. The constant sound of waterfalls echoed softly throughout their interior spaces. The waiting rooms walls were hung with vines with delicate white blossoms, which covered the surface of the bare rock, and draped over the moss on the floor. The moss emitted a subtle light, and brighter torches secured on the pillars above lit their high ceiling. There was a large folding scree

IMPORTANT NOTE: I decided to make up a name for "Sesshoumaru's mother" to use in this story.
She will be referred to as "Shirakume " from now on.
Having a name makes writing so much easier...."Sesshoumaru's mother" just sounds silly sometimes.
An Emergence 5: Momentum
Sesshoumaru and Inu no Taishou had arrived at the training field.
The ground was still steeped in the shade of the night.
The grass rustled gently in the breeze, and it mimicked the sound of the distant waves.
Inu no Taishou turned to his son.
"Draw, Sesshoumaru. I'll see how you have improved," he said.
Sesshoumaru pensively drew his sword in a slow, graceful motion. His sword glinted dimly in the darkness.
Taishou observed his son's expression. His son was always difficult to read.
"I will not come at you unless y

Shirakume is Sesshoumaru's mother's name that I use in this story.
sakazuki is a shallow bowl used for drinking sake. This word will be used often in this chapter.
An Emergence 6: Parting
Sesshoumaru stood silently while two female servants dressed him in his suite.
They seemed to be new, about his age or slightly younger.
They were both attractive, and seemed too sheltered to be serving their position.
It was evident that they were nervous, and they were not adept at what they were doing.
Their delicate hands were suitable for handling the fine fabric, though they were neither assertive nor efficient. They were having difficulty with fastening his kariginu* properly.
He was irritated by their ineptitude. However, it was pointless to make them even more nervous by showing

Meidouseki: is the stone entrusted to Sessmom by Inupop for Meidouzangetsuha's improvement (and a challenge for Sesshoumaru) Reference: Inuyasha Manga Chapter 467-471 (Meikai arc) I have included this element into my story.
An Emergence 7: "Machination"
It was near daybreak.
The blue torch flames that lit up Shirakume's palace faded as the darkness of the night began to yield to the approaching light.
Two of Kureha's apparitions were moving through the palace, carrying large caskets belonging to their mistress.
They glided through the long outdoor passageway between the wings of the palace, then entered into the dimly lit hallway of the next building.
Suddenly, they both halted.
Sesshoumaru stood in their way. &

An Emergence 10: Connection
Hakage sat in front of Sesshoumaru with her back as straight and rigid as one of stone pillars.
"...You...require my assistance?" She did not hide her astonishment.
"You understand what that means." Sesshoumaru watched her intently.
"I cannot let you inside of the Matriarch's chamber. You must stay at the guest's palace this evening." Hakage answered decisively.
She was afraid to anger him, however, it was not something she could allow herself to do. Even if they tried, Kuchinagimaru's presence would surely escalate such attempt into a disastrous situation. She was not confident about escaping the astute Lord of the Orochi's notice, even with Sesshoumaru's effort. Still, she felt sympathetic to his wish.
Don't Leave MeHe stared at the place where she had last stood. Her disappearance had left a void in his heart, one that he did not think could ever be filled. Despair filled him, and for the first time in his life, Hatter knew what it was to have a broken heart, to care for someone more than he cared for himself, to be willing to do anything to bring her back. She had given him love; he did not think that anything but her would make him whole again.Don't Leave Me5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
As he fell to his knees, Hatter cursed the words that he hadn't been able to say until it was too late, the simple fact that had caught in his throat and hadn't escaped until she was gone.
"Don't go," he whispered after her, still staring at the Looking Glass. "Please...come back...I love you..."
Hatter's Christmas AdventureIn Wonderland Hatter had been confident, with sometimes a slight air of cockiness to him. But here, he was sometimes different. I couldn't help but notice the moments he tended to downplay. If the street was buzzing and someone was in our way, he'd tighten his grip on my waist and give the walker a look that always compelled them to give us the right of way. Then, wordlessly, he'd continue on with his hold more relaxed but also more protective. If we were amidst a large crowd, even if it was only relatively close by, he took it as an excuse to hold onto my waist or hand tighter. When a pole came into sight he'd run to it with a hold on my hand and, despite my protests, let go a second before it collided with our arms. And while I scolded him I had a smile on my face that wouldn't go away no matter how serious I tried to look, and he gripped me gently and whispered in an accent with the boyish smile on his lips, "You're too brilliant to think I'd let you get hurt."

An Emergence 14: Revelation
Kureha fell silent, and gazed upon Sesshoumaru's countenance half lit by the lamp in front of her.
His pale face appeared like a lacquered noh mask* to her, concealing so much of his emotion behind its restrained, flawless surface. His stern words revealed his impulse to push her away, yet there he was right in front of her, giving dispassionate counsel as she required from him. Whatever feelings he kept to himself, were not for her to know at this time.
She too, sought to maintain the distance from the one she once knew intimately, and play through her role in this private performance as the Orochi Matriarch. Nevertheless, in her heart Kureha recalled the silence she shared with him not long ago, when words were replaced by the touch of lips, and

An Emergence 13: Collaboration
Sesshoumaru followed Kuchinagimaru to a field in an opening in the forest, not too far from the hall where the celebration was taking place. The hall was built on the highest point of the Yamata island, and its large roof floated above, like an enormous ship riding on the edge of a high wave. From where they stood, they could still hear the faint sound of music and the crowd in the night breeze.
The two had been silent since Sesshoumaru agreed to come with Kuchinagimaru.
"I would give you a 'lesson' or two, if what you wish is a match."
In a testy tone, Sesshoumaru spoke to the back of the Lord of the Orochi. He was well aware that ever since they first met, his attitude had been inappropriate toward this male, the highest authority of the Orochi clan next to the Matriarch. Nevertheless, Se

You tossed in your sleep, clutching your favourite stuffed animal. Sweat rolled down your cheeks, as the voices in your dream coming closer towards you, whispering in your ears. You started to cry out in your sleep, saying that you'd wanted them to go away, and stop harassing you. As one of them came closer, your eyes shot open.
You sat up, whimpering. Your _____ eyes scanned the room, only to find that it was all a dream, you were really in reality. You sobbed, stepping out of bed. In your seven year old mind, there was only one person that could save you from the bad men, your papa Lovino.
Making your way towards his room, you see him sleeping soundly in his bed. You were scared to wake him, but with determination in your little mind, you hugged your stuffed animal closer to your chest, tugging at his sleeves of his pyjama top. A sudden noise made you sob, you were terrified now.
Lovino groaned, feeling the tug at his sleeve. Opening his eyes, he spotted you at his bed side, sobbing
