You're the cheering crowd, when I'm

blush when I call and hang up the phone.
I may not have the greatest voice,
or even the greatest sense of rhythm,
but I think of you and I have no choice,
but to express my love for you with them.
You're my companion in my daydreams,
making me laugh, even at the little things.
The one with the power to strike me dumb,
where all others get me talking till their
ears are numb. Yours are the compliments
that have me looking in the mirror, and
smiling, as if for the first time ever.
I may not be the greatest looker, I
sure don't tell the greatest jokes,
but I see how you feel for me, and
I'm filled with the highest of hopes.
You're my cloudless afternoon, you're
my starry midnight sky. You're the one
who makes me swoon, you're the one who
makes me cry. Your the one whom I need

Twenty-three year old Rin glanced around the bar her friend, Kagome, had forced her to go to. She normally didnt go to bars because she hated the smell of alcohol on peoples breath, but Kagome was too chicken to go by herself to meet her latest date Inuyasha. Rin rolled her eyes at the fact that Kagome seemed to fall in love with people that had bad habits. Her first boyfriend was a guy named Hojo. He seemed liked a good guy at first, but soon found out he was one of those touchy-feely abusive types. Her second boyfriend was a guy named Kouga. He was great except for the fact that he was very possessive of her and considered her to be his woman. He would get jealous every time he saw her speaking with another man. He was still giving her trouble, even after they broke up. Now it seems shes dating a man with drinking problems. That, of course was just an assumption Rin was making because they were meeting in a bar.
So where is this guy?

Inuyasha Wakahisa was sitting on his small couch in his room, rubbing both sides of his face angrily. Who did that girl think she was anyway? She'd only been with them for a week and already she was acting like head mechanic instead of his assistant. Trust Miroku to pick up the headstrong ones, if only Kouga hadn't decided to run off and marry that girl he met on planet Chehalis.
Sure he had called Kagome a whiny bitch, but she didn't have to deck him one for it. Besides, she had it coming, the first thing she did when Miroku introduced her to him was run up and tweak the fuzzy white ears on top of his head to "see if they were real."

A seven year old Rin sat in the lush green grass waiting for Sesshomaru-sama to return. He had been gone for an awful long time and she was really starting to miss him. Sure she had Ah-Un and Jaken-sama to keep her company, but she preferred Sesshomaru-sama. Jaken-sama didn't like her much and he was boring, and although Ah-Un seemed to like her just fine he wasn't much company; all he did was sleep all day. So she decided that she would leave the two of them alone and pick flowers in the filed.
"Rin, do not go out of my sight! Sesshomaru-sama will have my head if I were to lose you!" The little toad yelled as she started walking away.
"I won't go far Jaken-sama, I'm just going to pick some flowers." She said over her shoulder. She heard him mumble something under his breath about silly human girls and flowers, but she didn't pay much attention to him as she started

Rin gulped hard as did Kagome.
They reached down and began to undo the thermal bands that covered IY14's body, a mockery of clothing. Not that thermal bands in themselves were a bad thing, they were very effective at reviving someone from hypothermia, but to make some one use it as the only form of clothing, it was…demeaning.
Rin rationalized that it was necessary to remove the bands as soon as they got to him bathroom in order to get a full view of his wounds and bathe him. However, once all of the bands were removed, the wounds were not the only things the two girls got an eye full of.
"Well um…" Rin cheeks flushed a little, and she turned to Kagome who was as red as a tomato.
Kagome had never seen a naked man in real life before, so she practically fell over blushing when Rin removed the last of the thermal bands. Rin's eyes had the experience of seeing the male anatomy once before when she and Sango had misunderstood the name of the bar where they were supp

Despite the fact his feet were pounding the metal floor, he did not here the eerie hollow thud they should be creating. It was then he realized there was no sound at all. Even though he was breathing hard and his heart was pumping fast, he could not hear them working. Even still he did not dare stop running.
He almost tripped when his foot suddenly impacted a non-metallic surface. It was still solid like the metal, but it was not quite so unyielding.
Though his feet had not touched a wooden floor in so long, he liked the feel of it beneath his feet. It felt familiar and warm.
Even still he kept running…
He could hear shouting voices, voices he had heard all too many times before. But always he had never seen who they came from.

Would it not be foolish for a single drop of water on the high crest of a wave to say, "I am here aloft because of my own greatness"? Soon it will find itself among the foam and froth. Of course! That is the way with all things.
What is power? What is control? None of these can be kept forever. None of them are eternal possessions. They are just tools that shape the world, but every craftsman must eventually retire his instrument. Another artist will take his place.
