Chapter 1: The Vampire Attacks
Setting: Feudal era in search for a next shard of the jewel; mid-day
Inu-yasha had Kagome on his back and the others were riding on Kirara. “Kagome, where’s the jewel shard?” Inu-yasha asked. “It’s very close, no, wait stop!” Kagome demanded. “It’s right here.” “What, no demon?” Sango questioned. “I guess not.” Kagome shrugged getting off Inu-yasha and ran to it. She bent down reaching for it then suddenly the bushes beside her began to stir without her realising.
Inu-yasha noticed it and gasped. “Its trap, Kagome, get out of the way!” Before Kagome could even budge, the human sized demon jumped out immediately grabbing her around her waist, holding her against his body. The jewel shard dropped from her hand. “Heh, too late.” The demon chuckled. “Kagome-sama!” Miroku called out as they landed on the ground.
Kagome struggled trying to pull herself away. “Let me go!” Inu-yasha pulled out his Tetsaiga. “Kagome don’t move I’ll cut him down to size.” The demon grabbed her neck, holding her still. “You’d be foolish to use your sword; if you do, you won't only kill me you'll kill her too.” Inu-yasha clenched his fist and growled. “Damn you.”
“Heh, not so tough now are you half-demon, it be best you just leave her to me, I’ll use powers for good use.” The demon smirked, gradually walking away with her. Kagome tried pulling away his arm from her neck; she reached out for Inu-yasha. “Inu-yasha, Inu-yasha!”
“Oh no you don’t, get back here!” Inu-yasha shouted, running after them. “No one goes off with our friend; Hiraikotsu!” Sango called, throwing the large boomerang just blocking his way from leaving with Kagome. The demon frowned backing up just in time. The grip around Kagome’s neck was loosening. “This is for treating me poorly.” Kagome said, biting his arm.
The demon’s grip then released and Kagome was free. “You little bitch, I’ll kill you.” The demon declared, raising his claws. “Kagome, get down!” Inu-yasha yelled. Kagome got down quickly as Inu-yasha’s sword just passed her head slicing the demon in half. The demon then disintegrated and left Kagome panting on the ground. Inu-yasha ran to her, lifting her face. “Kagome, you alright?” Kagome nodded. “Yeah, I was just reckless is all, thank you.”
Shippo walked up to her, dropping the shard in her palms. “Here, you dropped it.” Kagome smiled giving him a hug. “Thanks Shippo.” “Kagome-sama has that demon hurt you in any way.” Miroku asked, giving her a brush on the bum. “It was fine until now.” She replied, smacking his hand.
“Heh heh.” Miroku got up and turned but was then slapped across the face by Sango. “You dirty monk, you’re no better than that demon.” Sango noted, with a frown. Everyone else sighed.
Somewhere else in the forest…
A young woman was running for her life away from the thing chasing her. “Please, leave me alone.” She pleaded with a cry. “Oh, and when I was starting to like you, do you hate me so much that you flee?” The mysterious thing responded.
It had gotten darker that the young woman couldn’t see where she was going and tripped over a thick tree root. “Oh did that hurt?” It asked again. She lifted herself up, and her wrist was slightly bleeding from the sharp rocks. “Your blood, it smells delicious.” He commented, dropping in front of her. Since it was so dark she still couldn’t see its face but he gave her goose bumps.
The dark figure reached his cold hand toward her. “Here, let me help you.” The young women backed up, but she felt the thing’s cold hand grab her arm pulling her up roughly. “Let me go, please.” She pleaded again. “Certainly, after I’m done with you.” He said, now holding her in his arms. “What are you going to do to me?” She asked. “You’ll see soon enough, my dear.” He smiled.
His smiled made the hair at the back of her stand on end. “Let go of me, let go you demon!” She demanded more angered than frightened this time. “Demon? Now I’m insulted.” He sighed in despair, he licked her wrist tasting her hot blood, and it made him quench for more. “Oh did I say demon, I meant…” But she felt him bend her head back revealing her neck.
“Don’t worry, I forgive you.” He spoke, creeping his cold dead-like fingers up her neck. “I hate to say this but, you’re not the one to carry on my mission, it’s sad for me to do this, really, I’d stay with you longer but…” She shivered in his arms feeling his cool breath brushing against her neck. “Brace yourself my dear, because this is really going to hurt.” He warned, as his fangs sharpened extending longer.
“Wha…Ahhhhh!” She screamed in pain and fear, as his fangs dug into her neck, the young women felt weak in her legs and started to fall, but was held up delicately, cradled in his arms, his lips were at her neck and he was soon at ease with the sensation of fresh human blood slipping down to the back of his throat. The young woman was now unconscious leaving him in deep content.
The next day…
Kagome woke up with a yawn and stretched, she looked around at her friends who were still fast asleep. She was just about to wonder where Inu-yasha was, but she knew exactly where. She looked up on the over hanging branches where the hanyou lay. She got up carefully putting Shippo back in her sleeping bag, and then she walked under the tree.
“And where are you going?” The voice asked. She looked up. “Going to wash up at the creek just down the path.” She answered thus continued. She wasn’t far from his sight so he stayed calm. She splashed water on her face, waking her up. “That feels great.” She commented. “Okay, now, don’t get yourself all pruney and stuff.” He snorted. “Inu-yasha, just because I hang around with men doesn’t mean Sango and I should smell like one.”
She walked back to her bag taking out her hair kit, and began brushing her hair in the mirror. This time she decided to tie her hair into a pony tail with a red ribbon. “Good morning, Kagome-chan.” Sango smiled. Kagome turned to the new voice. “Oh, morning.” Everyone soon after awoke and Kagome was making breakfast.
“This is yummy.” Shippo commented. “Yeah.” Miroku agreed. “What is it exactly?” He wondered. “They’re super flat, and this sticky substance is tasty.” Sango also noted. “They’re called pancakes; it’s very famous in our time.” Kagome replied. “What isn’t?” Inu-yasha sarcastically spoke, shoving it down his mouth. “Touchy, touchy.” Kagome responded.
They soon finished and were on the road again. “What are we doing now?” Shippo questioned, propped on Miroku’s shoulder. “Beats me.” Miroku answered. “Oh not my Azuki, why did I let this happen?” A man sobbed, as others were around them. “Huh?” They all said together. “That beast, I’ll make sure to you that I’ll slay him.” He promised, crying into her chest. The young woman was blue from death.
Kagome tapped on of the men’s shoulder. “Excuse me, what happened?” The man turned to face them. “Oh it was a terrible murder, this young women was attacked last night.” He repliedfor the distraught young man. “What attacked this lovely woman?” Miroku asked. “We don’t know, but it’s been attacking every women in this region every night.” He answered.
Inu-yasha sniffed. “Huh?” “What is it Inu-yasha?” Kagome asked. “There’s no scent of a demon or anything, not even a hint of her blood.” He answered. “What!?” They all responded in unison. “That’s it; the beast that killed her drank every single drop of her blood.” The man answered that had the lying women in his arms. “Drank her blood?” Sango repeated. “How horrible?” “Yes, how horrible in deed, the monster whose been attacking these women must be punished.” Miroku declared.
“To me this sounds like a vampire attack, but vampires don’t exist, even if they did, they don’t live in this country.” Kagome thought. The others soon left them with their respects for her and continued on with their journey, but this left them all silent for a good while.
Kagome finally broke it. “Inu-yasha…” “No.” He immediately answered. “You didn’t even let me finish.” She pouted. “I know what you’re going to say, you’re going to say “Inu-yasha, why don’t we find this demon and kill him.”” He replied. “If you know then why aren’t you?” She frowned. “It has nothing to do with us.” Inu-yasha scoffed. “You’re being such a jerk.” She stated and he huffed. “Maybe, he doesn’t want to go after it, because he knows we’d be in danger if we get into it.” Sango pondered. “He’s probably trying to protect us.”
A very small creature stood in the tree watching their every move. “Well, well we have new comers in our forest, this might become interesting.” It said, but was focusing more on Kagome.
