With Arms Wide Open by AHarris
Author's Notes:
The song featured here is 'With Arms Wide Open' by Creed off their Human Clay album.  This is my first shot at a songfic.  I hope you like it.

He stood alone, on top of a small hill that overlooked the village that he called home.  A warm spring breeze caressed his face and blew his wild silver mane around him.  He closed his eyes and lifted his face into the breeze.

 

Well I just heard the news today   

It seems my life is gonna change

I closed my eyes, begin to pray

Then tears of joy streamin down my face     

 

A smile crossed his face as he wiped his cheeks with the back of his hand. 

'I can't believe Kagome is pupped!'

He had only dreamed that one day he would have a mate.  Someone who loved him for who he was, not what he was.  But he never imagined that he would deserve someone as wonderful as his precious Kagome.

 

With arms wide open under the sunlight

Welcome to this place I'll show you everything

With arms wide open

With arms wide open

 

'A father!  I am going to be a father!

Not only did he gave a beautiful and amazing mate that he loved beyond words.  But now he would have a family.   His smile grew even bigger as that realization slowly sunk in.     

 

Well I don't know if I'm ready

To be the man I have to be

 

Kagome quietly approached her beloved hayou.  She said nothing, as he was obviously lost in thought.  He smiled a her but also said nothing.  Instead he pulled her aginst him, with her back against his chest.  He buried his nose in her hair and placed his clawed hands protectively over her still flat tummy.

 

I'll take a break,  I'll take her by my side

We stand in awe, we've created life

 

He squeezed her gently and inhaled her scent.  He reveled how it was now tinged with the scent of new life.  His precious pup.   He allowed himself to drown in her scent and be overcomed by the overwhelming feeling of her awesome love.

 

With arms wide open under the sunlight

Welcome to this place I'll show you everything

With arms wide open now everything has changed

I'll show you love  I'll show you everything

 

Inuyasha's thoughts drifted to his own father.  He had given his very life to protect him and his mother on the day he was born.  He'd never known him.  His head swirled with thoughts.  'Is he proud of me?  Would he have loved and welcomed Kagome into the family?  Is this the way he felt when mother told him she was pupped with me?'  He sighed as he wondered how his life would have been different if his father had been there to show him the world.  

 

With arms wide open

With arms wide open

I'll show you everything aw yeah

With arms wide open

 

He vowed to himself that his pup's life would be so different from his.  No, his pup would never be hardened from years of loneliness, sorrow and fear.  His pup ould be surrounded by by love and compassion.  He'd be damed if there would ever be a day that goes by that he wouldn't know how much they loved him.

 

If I had just one wish, only one demand

I hope he's not like me, I hope he understands

That he can take this life and hold it by the hand

And he can greet the world with arms wide open

 

Still clinging to his mate, he remebered how cruel people had been to him as a child.  He relived the incident with the kamari ball like it was yesterday.  The people that teased him and called him a filthy half breed.  He had never had a place to belong in this world and believe all people to be heartless and bad.  That is until his sweet savior came along.  With her sweet innocence and never ending love.  She alone showed thim that there was good in the world and that love could be true.  Because of her he had friends, a home, a family and finally a placed where he truely belonged.

 

With arms wide open under the sunlight

Welcome to this place I'll show you everthing

With arms wide open now everthing has changed

I'll show you love  I'll show you everything

 

Without a doubt, Kagome had saved his life.  Not only from breaking the seal and freeing him from a world of darkness,  but she saved him from the darkness of his own heart.  He would spend every day trying to show her how much he loved and needed her.  He would sacrifice his very life for her and his pup, just the way his father had done, without hesitation.  But he had every intention of sticking around to show his pup the world.  The good, the bad, the strong, the weak, the evil, the pure, the love, the hate, everything.

 

With arms wide open

With arms wide open

I'll show you everything, aw yeah

With arms wide open

Wide open

 

"Inuyasha?"

"Hmmm?"

"I told everyone our great news.  They are so excited for us."

She could feel him grinning against her head.  Even though the response she got was a muffled "Keh".

"But Shippou wanted to know something."

"What's that?"

"He wanted to know if once the pup came if he would still be welcome with us."

Inuyasha kissed the back of her head.  "With arms wide open baby."

End Notes:
A little corny, I know.  But I just couldn't help myself.  I heard this song on the radio and the plot bunny latched ahold of my brain and just wouldn't let go.  So I hope you like it.  Please review.  I read them all and appreciate every single one!  Thanks!!!!!!!
