The New Unsuspected Vampire Revealed!
Inu-yasha had stopped running and tried to catch one of their scents, but then his nose caught something else. “I smell Sango, she’s near, but I can’t get a whiff of Kagome’s.” He stated. “Well lets get to Sango quickly, maybe Kagome’s near water.” Miroku said. “Yeah.” Inu-yasha nodded and ran off again with Miroku behind him.
Sango was stomping around the area repeatedly. “Stupid Miroku, he made a promise to me already and I accepted so why is being such a…” Sango couldn’t think of what to say then she heard a scream. “What was that, another attack? I better stop this guy once and for all.” Then Sango ran after the scream.
Inu-yasha and Miroku….
When both of them heard the scream as well they quickened their pace. Miroku felt like his heart was going to fall out through his butt. “Please hang on you two.” Inu-yasha knew the sound wasn’t coming from Kagome, but he just wanted to get there to kill that bastard.
Then the rain finally fell quick and hard, making it harder for them to see, but that didn’t stop them from getting to their destination. It wasn’t too long that they caught up to Sango.
“Sango!” Miroku called. “Miroku?” Sango said she stopped and ran over to them. “Sango, Kagome isn’t with you is she?” Inu-yasha spoke. “Uh, no, I came on my own.” She replied. “She came looking for me?” "Of course she isn't." Inu-yasha responded rolling his eyes. Miroku spoke over him. “Yeah, we both did.” “You too?” Sango said a little shocked and he nodded. “Okay, there's no time to play kissy, kissy we have to find Kagome." Inu-yasha declared making them blush, soon they nodded and followed after him.
More thunder and lighting began to rupture as they continued on. They all suddenly stopped in a clearing where they saw two figures, but they couldn’t make them out. They could tell someone was kneeling down over someone else.
Inu-yasha's nose caught the scent of human blood. “It’s you isn’t it?” Inu-yasha growled.
The figure that was kneeling over someone raised its head and its glowing red eyes shone brightly in the rainy night sky. The figure looked more women like and it was awfully familiar as it slowly began to rise to its feet and began to growl. Lightening then flashed suddenly revealing the suspect.
The three of them gasped at the familiar face, it was Kagome indeed, but this wasn’t the Kagome they all knew, her eyes were blood shot red, and she had extended fangs and she was growling even louder.
“K-Kagome?” Inu-yasha spoke softly. She hissed at all of them, blood dripping from her fangs. The woman Kagome was feeding from was turning blue, was she dead they couldn't tell or they just didn't really pay notice to her at the moment, their only attention was to the sweet and kind Kagome. Getting annoyed by their presence Kagome took her arm and wiped the blood from her mouth and faced the unwanted company and was ready to pounce.
"Kagome!" Inu-yasha shouted. When Inu-yasha’s voice rang through her head, she blinked in confusion then grasped her head in agony. Kagome’s human self was trying to come back. Kagome fell to her knees and began to moan. “Kagome-chan!” Sango called.
Kagome’s head was pulsing roughly, but she was slowly getting through, her eyes were flashing from red to brown multiple times and she finally spoke without looking up at them. “G-Gomen…” She said lastly then leapt up to one of the overhanging branches and ran off, leaving her friends behind.
“Kagome!” Inu-yasha called after, but she was long gone.
The rain lessened and they remembered the victim. Miroku ran over to her. “She’s still alive, but barely, we have to get her back to the village.”
Sango noticed Inu-yasha’s actions and spoke. “Go after her Inu-yasha; we’ll take it from here.”
Inu-yasha faced her. “She needs you now more than ever.” Sango stated. He nodded and ran off after her. “I’ll bring her back, I promise!” He yelled.
They both nodded. Miroku lifted the woman’s body and headed back to the village. They were both quiet. Sango didn’t look at him at all. “I’m sorry.” Miroku spoke. “What?” “I said I’m sorry about what happened earlier; I do get carried sometimes and I know that I already promised you, and I’m glad you didn’t get hurt.” Miroku said. “Just forget about what happened then, we have more things to deal with now.” "Sango nodded and moved closer to him.
Kagome ran in tears not daring to even think of going back. “I can’t believe this, why is this happening, why is it happening to me, is more the question?” She cried to herself.
Inu-yasha followed in her direction, but the rain was washing away her scent. “Dammit, Kagome, this is my fault; don’t you dare consider it to be yours!” He frowned. “Kagome…”
