Chapter 6 Vampire’s Kiss
Kagome cringed. “Inu-yasha, you’re hurting me.” She whispered. “I’m sorry I do get carried away sometimes.” He said, but it wasn’t his voice this time. Kagome realized it, and turned her head at him and noticed she was in the arms of someone else. “You’re different from the others you know; I’ve never felt so attached to any of my victims, I want to thank you for the kiss you gave me.” He smirked, still covering her mouth. Kagome then started to release tears from her eyes. “Ooh, are you upset because you didn’t get the kiss from man you truly love?” He chuckled coldly; he pushed her hair away from her neck “You probably know me by now, I’m the vampire named Kura; and you belong to me.” Kura, still covering her mouth, bent her over a little revealing her artery which was covered nothing more by a thin layer of her skin. “I would love to do this as painless as I can, but it can’t be helped.”
“Don’t worry Kagome my dear, the pain will soon fade when you’ve fallen unconscious which shouldn’t be long; well, what do you know, you do possess the blood I’m searching for in that case from tonight you’ll become my bride, but first you have to die or it just won’t do.”
Inu-yasha let out a deep breath, he saw everyone else there except for one, and one he wished wasn’t missing. “You guys, where’s Kagome?” “Didn’t you go off into the forest with her a little while ago?” Sango replied. “What?” “Yes, when you came back from Kikyo for a very short time, you took her into the forest and told us not to follow you, or else.” Shippo mentioned. Inu-yasha hearing all this felt very uneasy, he turned away from them and said softly. “It wasn’t me.” Inu-yasha’s nose just caught something. “Kagome’s blood.”
“Blood?” They repeated after him. “No, it can’t be.” He turned around and began to run. “Wait, could it be, what I think Inu-yasha’s thinking?” Sango pondered she ran back to Kagome’s bag and took out a flashlight. Inu-yasha was ahead of them and was running as fast his legs could carry him. “Kagome be strong, don’t give up on me I’m coming!” Inu-yasha yelled out.
With Kagome and the vampire…
“This girl, she has so much blood and it seems it keeps refilling, can one being have so much pure blood?” Kura thought, but it didn't mean he's getting sick it he actually loves it.
Somewhere running in the forest…
Inu-yasha was still running getting closer to Kagome’s scent, he could smell hers perfectly fine but her captive’s scent was nowhere to be smelled (lol sounds funny instead of seen).
Kirara caught up a little closer. “Sango, what do you have there?” Miroku asked. Sango glanced at where Miroku was looking at. “A flashlight.” “A flashlight why?” He wondered. “I think it might come in handy.” She answered. “If Kagome’s theory proves to be true there might be a way to save her.” “They’re so far from camp.” Shippo noted. “He probably didn’t want us to catch them.” Miroku responded. “Now I feel horrible we could’ve prevented this.” Sango thought sadly.
Inu-yasha was running further and skidded to a complete stop when he spotted a scene he wished he’d never look upon. The rest of them noticed and Kirara landed on the ground. Sango ran up closer to Inu-yasha so she could see what he saw, she then gasped. “Kagome-chan…”
There was Kagome being held by the vampire Kura, his arm around her waist keeping her from falling and his other cradling her neck, his fangs in her throat and sucking out her blood. Kura knew they were there but ignored them. “Kagome-Sama, you vile beast!” Miroku said angrily. Kura glared up by the sound of Monk’s anger. “What do you guys want?” "What question is that?” Shippo asked sarcastically. “We want Kagome back.” “Heh, well you can't have her back, she belongs to me now.” He snickered. “Now, as much as I love your company, I really do prefer to dine alone.”
“You…bastard…” Inu-yasha growled loudly finally coming back to his senses. Kagome was lightly blue and was still breathing but barely. “If you don’t give Kagome back, I’ll slay you.” Sango frowned with some tears in her eyes but she held them back. She put her hand on her Hiraikotsu ready to swing it when necessary. “Oh was that a threat?” Scorn laced his voice as he dropped Kagome. “How many women have you murdered like this?” Shippo demanded, his voice wavering. “I don’t think you really want to know little one.” He answered. He mockingly licked the trace of blood from his lips and walked over her to get closer to the others.
Sango ran toward her friend’s body checking if she was still alive. “She’s still alive but just unconscious.” Sango noted. “My, would you like to be next, you’re pretty fine woman yourself.” Kura smirked. “Like hell I would.” She said coldly. He smirked even more, he held out his hand and sent a huge gust of wind from his palm sending her back to the others. Miroku caught her. “Kagome was at least more polite than you she will make Kura a wonderful bride.” He laughed. “Bride?!” This got Inu-yasha even angrier. “I’ll kill you!” Inu-yasha lunged at him with his claws but Kura dodged it effortlessly.
“Fine, you want to fight, once I finish you all off I’ll return to feeding.” He said with and evil grin. “I’ll never let you lay a finger on her again, you might as well kill me but I’m bringing you with me. There’s no way in hell I’ll let you kill her; Kagome’s is mine!” He declared loudly, giving another swing with his claws.
Kura dodged them again. “Oh what bold words you say; yet you couldn’t say such words to her when she was yours, you truly don't love her as much as you say. If you did you would have said it long before, she had to hear it from me as a favor for her.” He looked over at Kagome. “It was so easy for me to manipulate her into thinking I was you I easily got her to trust me and I didn’t even have to do much, Kikyo’s appearance made that only easier for me to get her into my trap. So I disguised myself as you in order for me to get her faraway from your friends, I also did all this so you wouldn’t have to see such a scene, but you did anyway.” Kura chuckled.
Inu-yasha clenched his fist and unsheathed his Tetsaiga. “You bastard!” he swung his sword and cut him in half but he turned into black powder. His chuckle was surrounding the forest. “You can’t kill me with such; vampires are immortal.” He then returned to his body-like form then sent him back with a powerful wind into a tree. Inu-yasha shook away the pain and ran at him again. Just then Sango remembered the flashlight; she took it out of her pocket and got up from Miroku’s chest. She started to walk toward the two fighting creatures. “Sango, what are you doing, get back here.” Miroku called after. “I got an idea.” She said and ran toward them. “What do you think she has planned with that flashlight?” Shippo wondered. “I don’t know... wait.” He said.
“I know things that can weaken them; light is their worst enemy anything with light they’ll die or leave.” Kagome said.
“Light?” They repeated.
-End of flashback-
“I get it now.” Miroku said. Sango was there ready with the button. “Kura!” She called angrily. Kura and Inu-yasha turned to her. “Take a look at this!” She then turned on the flashlight, shining it in his eyes. Kura wailed in pain when the bright light shone in his eyes. “Curse you.” “Inu-yasha, do it now!” Sango demanded. Inu-yasha nodded. “Take this, WIND SCAR!” He summonded as his sword released the mass of destruction. Kura recovering from the temporary blindness noticed the destruction heading towards him. “No!” Then he was sent flying back gradually disintegrating. “How, how could such a thing…” Then his voice went silent.
Inu-yasha thrust his Tetsaiga in the ground. “He’s gone, that bastard that murdered the other women tried to kill Kagome, he’s finally put to an end.” “So you think you’ve you won?” Kura’s voice echoed. “Dammit.” Inu-yasha began to growl standing up. “Even since you’ve destroyed my body, I still live you see…” “What?” “I didn’t just go through all that just to drink my dear Kagome’s blood, no, we also shared such a splendid moment together. She has the pure blood I needed to survive longer, and I drank most of it; As you see since I got Kagome to trust me I have even given her a kiss and she gave it back." He stated.
Inu-yasha snarled at this. “The kiss from a vampire; what this kiss does it makes her mine. She will turn into a vampire herself sooner or later, but the only problem is I didn’t finish her off so that will only make her a half-blooded vampire, in order to become a full vampire she needs to be dead, but she still lives.” “Why you…” He growled. “As soon as human blood touches her lips she will crave for more and more until she can’t control herself and can’t be stopped unless she is killed. Heh, you should have just let me finish her off so she didn’t have to live in such miserable life, she would have been much more happier if she stayed with me as my bride once she realises she can’t fit in with anyone else.” His voice then started to fade. “She will still be my half-blooded bride no matter how much she’ll deny it…I live within her soul…” Then it was gone.
“Hrrr…how dare you put Kagome in such a miserable state.” Inu-yasha shouted loudly. Sango looked down at Kagome’s body and knelt down to her, taking her hand in hers. “She looks like just our normal Kagome.” Sango looked up at Inu-yasha who came over. “Inu-yasha, I’m sorry it’s my fault I should’ve known better, I wasn’t thinking; I-- no we could have prevented this from happening…” He bent down next to them. “Don’t blame yourselves, it wasn’t your fault. The only one to blame is me; I should have never left Kagome’s side and now I regret doing it.” He said ashamedly then he scooped her up slowly and headed back to camp holding her bridal style.
Sango sat there watching them leave as tears started to fall from the her eyes then she felt a hand on her shoulder. She looked up to see Miroku. “Come on Sango, we better follow.” She nodded sadly, wiping the tears from her face and got up and they walked side by side with Shippo on Kirara’s head following after. Miroku held her hand to keep her spirit up and Sango didn’t even bother she wasn’t feeling negative anymore because she knew it would make Kagome and even her happy.
