Chapter 1 by Browneyedmami

I never thought I'd have a family. Growing up the only family I had was my mother, and she died when I was just a child. My father died before I was born, and my brother had always hated me simply because of what I was.

I thought I had found love with Kikyo, but she never really accepted me for who I was. She only saw the human in me, and while at the time I was content with that, I don't know now if I truly would have been. After she and I didn't work out, and I awoke from the spell she put on me, I became bitter and pushed the idea of falling in love and having a family far into the back of my mind, dismissing it as something that would never happen.

But then she came into my life. Little by little she broke down the walls I had so carefully put up to protect myself. At first it was hard accepting the thought that someone else other than my mother accepted me, but then not only did she accept me for it, but Miroku and Sango as well. She formulated our group and I love her very much for it.

And now, as I am sitting here and laughing with our children and the companions I now consider as brother and sister, I turn to my wife, and kiss her on the forehead letting out a quiet

“Thank you”

She looks up at me, and smiles and for a moment I think she's going to ask what I mean, but then she lets out a simple

“Your Welcome”

and I know that all of this was meant to be.
