Snowfall - Chapter Six
Chapter Six: Battle Not Won
She had been right, it didn't take took long for them to reach the border and what they could see nearly sent Aiyuki in to a rage. Naraku was no where to be found but hordes of youkai at his command were battling her army.
"We aren't going to win this one, it was an ambush." Kouga jumped down from her back and he could see with his own eyes the great wolf demoness's body shaking with rage, her eyes becoming bright white with her emotion.
"NARAKU!!" She yelled out, a long angered howl accompanying her voice as it echoed over the lands. The youkai tearing in to her allies turned their attentions from the lesser wolves and turned their focus to her.
"Here they come." Kouga got in to a stance ready to help fight them off.
"No. Kouga take the wounded and the surviving in to Sesshoumaru's territory. Get as far from here as you can, I'll hold them off." She transformed back from her wolf form and stood now with both of her swords wielded in her

Chapter Five: Unforgiven, Unforgotten
Sesshoumaru walked with in his region, close to the Bone Eater's Well though he knew his wretch of a brother lived in the human village not too far from it. His companions traveled behind him, always not too far from where he was. Jaken talking sternly to Rin as always for her humming, the toad always seemed to assume that things the child did got on the dog demon's nerves when in fact they didn't. The lord stopped when he caught a scent on the wind, a scent he had not encountered in several years. In fact the last he had smelled the scent of snow and strawberries was on the night his father died and his half brother was born. He growled low before he collected his composure as Rin and Jaken got closer.
"Aye mi lord?" Jaken had stopped and beside him the dragon demon, Ah-Un stopped with him, Rin riding on his back.
"Stay here with Rin and Ah-Un." Not another word was spoken by Sesshoumaru before he took off, headin
Snowfall - Chapter Four
Chapter Four: Reunion
Many years had passed for all of Japan. Rumors and tales had reached all across the land, even to Aiyuki's ears in the east. She had heard about the Shikon no Tama, about Naraku, and how a certain half-breed named Inuyasha was in search of the shards to the jewel. Aiyuki had her own encounter herself with the shard, though she did not possess them for her own sake, she possessed them after having collected five in hopes of collecting more as trade for Ryaku and Kai. The two demons had been captured by Naraku and forced to become his pawns in his little game. The she-wolf has traversed the lands, now completely far from her eastern borders and delving in to western regions, in to dog demon territory. She kept her cloak tight around her, her hood hiding her face as she traveled through one particular forest, Inuyasha's forest.
So they named a forest after you little one? She grinned as she stared up at the great tree that Inuyasha was

Chapter Three: Torn Too Young
A few years had passed, the young hanyou grew from a small babe to a young child. He was cared for by his mother and watched over by Aiyuki, who became somewhat of a big sister to him. One day as they were in the gardens Inuyasha watched the people who lived there at the palace playing with a ball. He ran over to try and play with them, curious and wanting to have some fun with them. One of the men stared at the young boy with distaste before he tossed the ball over the bridge. Inuyasha quickly gave chase only to turn around with the ball and hand to see everyone leaving and muttering amongst themselves. He blinked confused, his small white dog ears twitching lightly upon his head. He looked over toward his mother and quickly ran to her arms, leaving the ball there where he had caught it.
"Mom? What's a.... half-breed?" He asked and Aiyuki stopped playing her violin with in the tree above them. Izayoi couldn't keep the tears from f
