Zoe Lester, a young woman of twenty-five, with her jet black hair and brown eyes. She was born from both an American and Japanese. Her mother was born and raised in Japan but after moving to America, times had changed. Zoe’s mother found an American husband and soon came Zoe herself. Since she was born in America, she was given an American name.
When the time came of Zoe to be of age, she became very curious of her Japanese background. She tried to find out everything she could about her lineage, but her parents would never speak of it about her. Whenever she would ask her parents about it, they would give a sad expression and say ‘there’s not much to tell’ and leave it at that.
“But Mom,” Zoe slightly whined. “You always say that. I’m now over 18 years old and you still give the same story. It’s not fair.”
Zoe’s mother turned to her. “Life isn’t fair. Can’t you just let it go and stop nagging me? I was sworn to never speak of our lineage. It’s a forbidden topic.”
“That sounds like a bunch of BS mother and you know it!” Zoe snapped.
“Don’t you take that tone of voice at your mother!” Zoe’s father growled as he entered the room. He had just returned home from work.
“Sweetheart,” Zoe’s mother started. “If you are so damned determined, then why don’t you travel to Japan and find out for yourself. You do have family out there.”
“Maybe I will.” Zoe turned on her heel, heading upstairs. It was very peculiar why her parents would not tell her and to always try and convince her to go to Japan and get her answers.
Once getting to her room, Zoe finally made a decision; she was going to take up on her mother’s offer. She was going to take her savings and go to Japan and learn her answers. When she was born, her parents made a trust fund for her to do what she wished with it. It was going to pay for her way to Japan and even stay there until she found her answers.
The moment Zoe was gone; her mother picked up a plastic bowl and threw it. “Why does this day have to come!?” she yelled as tears threatened to fall.
Her husband rushed to her side. “I know dear. It’s tough and it’s tough on me too. But you know this is what must be done.”
“I won’t ever see my daughter again. I don’t think I can live with that.”
“Sweetheart, we both have to no matter what. It has already been predestined before she was even born. Before we even met.”
“I know!” she hissed. “But I don’t have to like it.”
“She’s securing the future. It’s just a good thing your family has money.”
“And she’ll even learn how we have money.”
The two adults looked up to see their daughter.
“I have come to a decision. I am going to take up on your offer and go to Japan. It angers me to know my parents are keeping something from me. But you two did teach me that each person has a reason to be born. We may not always get along, but I am proud to have you as my parents.”
Her mother had tears brimming her eyes. “We love you too. And we’re very proud of you. Never forget that.”
Zoe ran to her parents, hugging them both. “Mom,” she started in Japanese. She was very grateful to being fluently bilingual in Japanese and English, all thanks to her Mom. Not many people in Japan had her talent. “Can you help me to pack? You know more about Japan than I do. I have never been in Japan.”
“I would love to.”
“Why don’t we go out tonight and get you a plane ticket?” her father suggested. “And we’ll make it a family outing?”
“That’s a great idea,” Zoe said.
Before leaving for Japan, her mother insisted for her to pack light and to always carry a bag of clothes with her everywhere she went. She would never give any reason why, only a promise to always carry it. Something was very off with that, but Zoe, loving her mother, never questioned her mother’s requests.
Staying true to the request, Zoe only packed light and kept a bag of her things with her on her back at all times. Now that she was in Japan, she had to find out where most of the ancient history would be stored and there was only one place where that would be, the government office of history. For days she searched, having her bloodline traced. Finally she reached a section stating on Warring States Era and there she found much information, she never knew existed.
She continued her search until a name came up and wouldn’t leave her mind. The name was Sesshomaru. There was an inscription beside his name. Just beside the name there was a small drawing of a man with long hair and carried two swords. He had pointy ears. What was the harm in reading?
“Pass through the gates of time to the one who will guide me to the face of love.”
Zoe looked up with a frown. “What kind of inscription is that?” she asked herself.
A sudden wind blew around, blowing all the papers around. It frightened Zoe. There were no windows in the room she was in so why was there a wind? To frightened to think anymore, Zoe tried to move but found herself frozen in place. Sparks of light appeared, wrapping around Zoe, while a black hole opened up under her feet. Before she could mutter a scream, her body fell through the hole. The wind died down as if nothing ever happened, leaving the room of ancient archives empty.
From deep in the shadows, a cloaked figure walked into the room. The figure picked up the book in which fell to the floor when the woman disappeared. With one look at the drawing, the figure then closed the book. “It’s time to make history.”

Chapter 1 – Where am I? (Feudal Japan – 500 years ago)
Travelling the countryside of Japan, a very powerful demon with his retainer and small human child walked with him. The young girl was holding the reins of a two-headed dragon demon. The girl was known as Rin and she had been travelling with the demon since the day he brought her back to life after she was mauled by wolves. His retainer, Jaken had been at his side for nearly 600 years. The demon in questioned was known as Sesshomaru, Lord of the Western Lands. He was a full-blooded dog demon unlike his half brother Inuyasha, who was only half dog demon, born from a human mother and their own demon father.
“Lord Sesshomaru,” Rin called. The said demon did not stop, but Rin knew he was listening. He always was listening though he rarely spoke. “I’m beginning to get hungry. May we stop so I can find something?”
Jaken scowled. “How many times have I told you…” The toad demon had
The three were travelling when suddenly a wind whipped about.
“Lord Sesshomaru!” Jaken squeaked. “What is going on?”
Rin grabbed onto Sesshomaru’s leg as the wind nearly blew her away.
The said demon, ignored the pull on his leg. He knew the wind was powerful enough to blow her away and he really didn’t want to deal with trying to find her. He looked up to see a black hole appear in a swirl. His eyes widened as the scent of another human assault his keen senses. Seconds later a woman, wearing strange clothes dropped from the hole, landing the ground, knocking her out. A rather large black pack was on strapped on her back.
The black hole sealed up, wind dying, leaving the peacefulness of the afternoon air like nothing happened. Rin released Sesshomaru’s leg, making herself look presentable again.
She was about to apologize to Sesshomaru when she looked over. “Look Lord Sesshomaru,” Rin said. “She just fell from that hole.”
“She wears strange clothes too, just like the woman who travels with Inuyasha.”
“We should help her,” Rin said.
“Don’t be so stupid, Rin,” Jaken called out. “Lord Sesshomaru doesn’t help humans.”
“If that’s so true, then why did he help me?” she asked.
Jaken gave a look of stun at her words, which made a lot of sense. He didn’t know what to say, as he was still confused himself why. Sesshomaru took a sniff in the air. He could smell the woman was injured from the fall, but was still very much alive.
“Lord Sesshomaru, please, can we help her. From her strange clothes perhaps she comes from where that nice woman comes from.”
Sesshomaru gave Rin a side-glance. He knew who she was referring to, Inuyasha’s female companion with the strange clothes. From the smell that was emitting from the woman, it would appear Rin spoke the truth. Sesshomaru had smelt the same sort of strange smellness like that was on Kagome. From the times of coming into contact with Inuyasha, Sesshomaru learned how Inuyasha’s woman seemed to be very nice and tried to help out if she could.
“We shall rest here,” Sesshomaru finally said. “Rin, I will leave it to you to look after the woman.”
“Ok!” Rin went over to Ah-Un, a two headed dragon demon. Underneath the two-headed beast’s saddle there was a blanket. Taking the blanket, Rin rushed over to the woman. Rin had some trouble but she was able to pull the pack off the woman. Rin then carefully turned her around. The woman had high up ponytail. “She’s pretty.”
“She doesn’t look like a human I’ve ever seen,” Jaken said as Sesshomaru slightly walked away, sitting on a large rock.
“She smells like she does come from the future,” Sesshomaru answered in his usual stoic voice. “The same place where Inuyasha’s Priestess is from.”
“I heard her name is Kagome,” Rin said. “She sounds very nice.”
“Yes, that is her name,” Jaken answered for Sesshomaru as the dog demon closed his eyes.
For an hour, Sesshomaru had his eyes closed but with his other demon senses, he was able to know the conditions of the woman who fell from above them. Soon enough, the woman slowly began to wake.
Knowing neither Jaken nor Rin were looking at the strange woman, Sesshomaru felt the need to voice her change. “She wakes,” he finally said.
Rin looked over and sure enough Sesshomaru was right. “Oh, wow! Lord Sesshomaru your senses are good.”
Jaken snorted, arms crossed. “Of course they are. He is a demon.”
“Oooooo…” the woman moaned.
The first thing Zoe noticed was she was laying on a hard surface, which wasn’t fully even. Another thing she noticed was she felt a blanket over top of her but the texture of it was very strange. Her eyes slowly opened, blurred at first, but soon came into focus as she saw the concerned look of a little girl.
“What the hell happened,” Zoe moaned out in English.
“Ahhh! Lord Sesshomaru!” Rin yelled out. She jumped back at hearing the woman speak a language she never heard. “She’s not speaking our language!”
At the scream, Zoe jumped up but quickly regretted it. A sharp pain slammed into her like a ton of bricks as it stung into her side. She realized she was outside, lying on the ground near a tree. She slowly slid herself up to lean against the tree as the pain in her side throbbed. She knew there was a bruise there.
Jaken rolled his big eyes. “Figures as much,” he mumbled.
Sesshomaru recognized the language the woman spoke. “What language do you speak?” Sesshomaru said in same language as the woman’s. He remained where he was, but now was staring at the woman’s general direction.
Zoe’s heart skipped a beat at the sound of a deep masculine voice. She lightly turned her head. Giving a light gasp as the handsomeness of the man before her. His golden eyes were so alien to her, yet so beautiful. She could tell by the way he sat, he was a tall man, but his clothes were very strange to her. She noted he was speaking English.
“I speak both English and Japanese,” Zoe answered the man. “What is going on?”
“I have no answer for you.” Sesshomaru answered, continuing to look at the woman. “It appears you have travelled back through time and from the looks of your clothing, I would presume 500 years.”
“What!?” Again she brought herself to a full alert but quickly regretted it. This time though she was face with a major dizzy spell and a headache. “Oooooo, 500 years, this can’t be.”
Rin backed away, going towards Jaken. “What is she saying?”
“Foolish girl,” Jaken shook his head. “She’s speaking another human language called English. She does speak Japanese as well.” He finally recognized the speech the woman was using.
“Woman,” Jaken snapped at Zoe in Japanese. “What is your name?”
Zoe leaned her head against the tree. Slowly her eyes scanned around, seeing her large backpack. She slowly reached for it, grabbing a small bottle and a bottle of water. Rin watched in fascination, though scared as the woman pulled out a tiny looking object from the small bottle and then opened the bigger one, taking a drink before putting the small object in her mouth.
“I asked you a question!” Jaken snapped, impatiently.
“Huh?” Zoe looked at the little toad and wanted to jump out of her skin. “Oh my…” she started in English. She looked at the little girl. Seeing the confused look in her eyes, Zoe felt sorry for her. She finally answered in Japanese. “Zoe. My name is Zoe.”
“Never heard that name before,” Rin said.
“That’s because it’s a name from a different country,” Zoe answered. She looked over at the man in the white outfit. Giving a gasp, her mind went back to when she read that inscription in the book and beside it was the name Sesshomaru and drawing of what he looked it. The drawing was nearly exactly what the man standing before her. “Please, tell me your name.”
There was a silent moment before Jaken interrupted.
“He is known as Lord Sesshomaru of the Western Lands and I am Jaken.”
Zoe gasped again. “Sesshomaru… that’s the name that was beside the inscription.”
Sesshomaru turned his full gave on the woman. “Inscription? Explain.”
“Well where I’m from… I was looking for information to explain why my parents would never speak about my family lineage. I was just beginning to find something when I came a crossed a book with your name written in it and an inscription. I read it aloud and suddenly I found myself here.”
“A magic spell?” Jaken questioned.
“I guess one would call it that?” Zoe suddenly moaned in pain from her ribs. “damn,” she muttered in English. “I hope the aspirin takes effect soon.”
“A what?” Jaken asked.
“Jaken!” Sesshomaru commanded. He watched as the little demon shivered in fear. He looked at Sesshomaru and closed his mouth.
Zoe half cringed at the sound of the man’s voice. His voice was so enthralling but yet sounded dangerous. Her mother’s words suddenly voiced in her head, from before leaving for Japan ‘Remember to always remember me and never let that pack off your back when you’re travelling around. You never know when you’ll need it. And you’re not going to need your cell phone either.’
Zoe sat up again, this time not cringing in pain. The aspirin she took was finally taking an effect. “Mother…how could you…” she whispered in English. “You know this was going to happen…” She reached into her pocket, pulling out her cell phone. Sadness engulfed her suddenly. “Why didn’t you tell me?”
“What is that?” Rin asked as she watched Zoe pull out something small and opened it.
Sesshomaru remained alert in case she was to attack but he couldn’t sense any evil coming from the object.
Zoe looked up with tear filled eyes. “It’s…it’s called a cell phone,” she answered the girl.
“A cell… phone…” Rin blinked. “Oh! That’s something from your world. We don’t have anything like that.”
Zoe lowered her head, gripping her phone. “I know…”
Rin cocked her head. “Why so sad? You’re safe here with Lord Sesshomaru.”
Sesshomaru didn’t say anything as he continued to watch the woman, seeing and smelling her sadness. He had smelt the salt of her tears before they were evident on her face.
Rin walked over to the woman, resting her small hand on the woman’s.
Zoe looked at the girl. “I was just ripped away from my world and have no way back and the worse part is my mother and father probably knew this was going to happen… but why?”
“Jaken,” Sesshomaru called forth. “You remain here.”
Sesshomaru stood and began walking away. Zoe watched him turn away. His furry boa falling down his back forced another gasp out of her. He was truly a beautiful man. Yet she had no idea how dangerous he really was. She had no idea he wasn’t even human or the fact he was a powerful demon who could be very dangerous if provoked.
After leaving the encampment, Sesshomaru flew off in the direction he knew where to find Inuyasha. He didn’t like his brother but he wasn’t going because of the half demon but for the woman who travelled with him. He wanted answers and he was going to get them. It didn’t take Sesshomaru long to find his half brother. He knew his brother would smell out his approach.
“Sesshomaru!” Inuyasha growled, sword drawn. “What the hell do you want?”
“I’m not here to settle with you,” Sesshomaru snarled. “I wish to speak with your Priestess.”
Inuyasha blinked. “With Kagome? Why?”
Kagome was standing off to the side listening. She had jumped when Inuyasha growled out his half-brother’s name. Their friends Miroku and Sango stood up as they saw the demon’s approach. The three knew to stay out of the way when the brothers were facing off with one another.
Kagome blinked. “Why does he want to talk to me?”
Sesshomaru walked past his brother, ignoring the growls coming from the half-demon. He could feel Inuyasha’s eyes on him, watching him like a hawk. But the half-demon was too stunned, for the moment, to really act. He stopped just in front of Kagome. He was far enough away from her in case he was to swing out his arm and not touch her, but he was also close enough to make her look up at him. She was short for a human woman and it made him look like a giant.
“I need your assistance.” His eyes never left hers.
Kagome felt herself shiver at the powerful stare he was giving her. She never had him look at her so intensely before. Another shiver swept through her body, as she couldn’t break his stare. Of course the demon rarely gave her a sideways glance.
Finally Inuyasha’s thoughts caught up to him and he aimed his sword ready to attack. “You are not going anywhere with Kagome. Not without getting past me first.”
“All bark and no bite as usual,” Sesshomaru taunted without turning away from Kagome. Both Kagome and Inuyasha knew those words were directed at the half-demon.
Patience wearing thin, Sesshomaru gave his brother a side-glance before turning to Kagome again. “If you do not come with me, I will take you by force.” He did not like the idea of holding the woman who had the scent of Inuyasha all over her, probably from travelling. But he needed her help.
Kagome took a step back just as Inuyasha really became angered.
“Have it your way,” Sesshomaru coldly answered. In action to quick for anyone to react, his one arm snaked around Kagome’s waist and he was already in the air, just as Inuyasha started to charge forward.
“KAGOME!” Inuyasha screamed as his friend was taken away.
Kagome wanted to scream but the feel of Sesshomaru’s claws against her waist prevented her from saying a word. She was shaking like a leaf as he flew away. After several minutes of flying, she saw they were nearing the tree line. He must have been getting ready to land.
As soon as her feet were firmly planted on the ground, his arm was away from and he was now a safe distance away. Her body slumped to the ground in a bit of shock. She hung her head down, trying to catch her breath. Flying through the air with him so close nearly knocked the wind out of her. He didn’t hurt her. What was Sesshomaru doing?
“As I said,” Sesshomaru said, not bothering to look in her direction. “I need your assistance. You come from the future do you not?”
Kagome gasped as she looked up. “How…”
“Don’t try my patience Priestess,” Sesshomaru interrupted.
Kagome gulped. He meant business, this she knew. He had already tried to kill her once before. He could do it again and this time she had nothing to protect her like last time.
“Why do you want to know that I come from another time?” she asked carefully.
“Follow me,” he instructed. He turned away from her, heading towards a clump of trees.
Kagome had no choice but to follow. She trusted Inuyasha to find her and he probably was trying to follow her scent right at the moment. She had to climb to her wobbly feet so she could run to catch up. She eventually did catch up to him when he came to a small area where his retainer Jaken and the little girl were. But there was another woman there and she looked like she was wearing… modern day clothes. Kagome gasped again. That’s why Sesshomaru was asking her the question about her world.
“Lord Sesshomaru!” Rin called as she looked up to see her Lord. She looked past him to see Kagome. “You came too,” she smiled.
Jaken looked up and then grumbled. Why was Inuyasha’s woman with Lord Sesshomaru?
Zoe looked up at the mention of Sesshomaru’s name. To her surprise a girl came up from behind the man, but she was wearing… oh my god!… she was an outfit she had seen in Tokyo.
“What’s going on?” asked Zoe in Japanese.
“That’s what I’m wondering,” Kagome answered back. “You’re not from here are you?” Kagome walked past Sesshomaru to the woman.
“No. The last thing I remember is being in the government office of history,” Zoe answered. She was going on the whim that perhaps this girl knew what she was referring to.
“Government of History?” Kagome blinked. “That’s in Tokyo.” Kagome noticed the woman was holding her side. “Are you alright?”
“I think I might have bruised my ribs.”
“You mind if I take a look?” she asked. “My name is Kagome. What’s yours?”
“Zoe,” she answered. “I’m from America.”
Kagome looked at Zoe with shock. “You’re a Japanese American?”
Rin, Sesshomaru and Jaken watched as the two women spoke to one another. The two demons were astonished, as the women knew what the other was talking about. As for Rin, she was confused beyond belief. Eventually Sesshomaru turned away, continuing to listen to them but not bothered to watch them. He learnt enough. The woman who fell from above was from the future.
Kagome was soon giving medical attention to Zoe, helping the woman to remain calm. When Zoe’s wounds were dealt with, Zoe leaned against the tree.
“I want to go home,” Zoe answered quietly as tears streamed out.
Kagome felt sorry for her. “I know you…”
Sesshomaru snapped his head to attention as the smell of an ugly demon was approaching. His hand shifted to the hilt of Tokijin, ready to pull it out if need be.
Kagome quickly turned away from Zoe. “I sense a jewel shard!”
What was going on? Thought Zoe. A jewel shard? What did Kagome mean by that?
No sooner thought, Zoe’s eyes widened in complete terror as a demon crashed out of the trees. The demon was completely ugly looking with green skin and four eyes. It had four arms and each one was stretched out, reaching towards something.
“Worthless pest,” Sesshomaru hissed as he pulled out his sword with a quick flick of his wrist. He sliced the demon completely in two without so much as creating a sweat or moving from his spot. The cut was perfectly done without so much as a flicker of anger appearing on Sesshomaru’s face. Rin and Jaken watched Sesshomaru with fright and fascination.
Once the demon fell to the ground, Rin relaxed. “He is so great. He’s one of the best demons I’ve ever met.”
“Demon?” Zoe asked, completely freaked out of her mind as she watched as Kagome rushed over to what was left of the demon and pulled out a pink fragment of something.
Jaken snorted as he rested against his staff of two heads. “He’s not a human being. He’s a powerful demon who can kill you in an instant.”
“And he can transform into a large dog,” Rin explained. “It can be scary seeing him in that form but apparently it’s his true form.”
Zoe gulped. He wasn’t human. When she was searching up on her family ancestry, she had found information dealing about another race of people who lived on Earth along with the humans. They were known as demons and most of them were evil and would kill humans without hesitation. She looked up at Sesshomaru.
He felt a set of eyes looking at him and he turned to see the mortal future woman was staring at him. He had heard the words exchanged between her, Rin and Jaken and he found it somewhat amusing to hear Rin speak of him so admirably.
He looked at the mortal woman for a moment with an intense gaze, forcing her to look away from him. As she turned her head, she felt her cheeks flame up in a blush. He had caught her looking at him. It was a feeling she would get in high school when she would look at a boy she had a crush on and if he looked in her direction. But this was not high school. This was a different world, different time.
“Rin,” Sesshomaru said. “We are going.”
Kagome blinked. He was leaving? Of course it was probably for the best as Inuyasha was surely on his way to find her.
Zoe looked a little fearful. Rin gave a small smile to the woman. “I have to go now. It’s nice to meet you.” She gave a slight Japanese bow and rushed towards Sesshomaru as the demon stood. Jaken was quick to run to his side as well and the three began to walk away.
Kagome placed her hands on her hips. “That was really strange.”
“What are we to do now?” asked Zoe.
“Wait for Inuyasha to come,” Kagome answered. She went over to a nearby tree and picked up some twigs. It was starting to get on dark.
“Inuyasha? Who is Inuyasha?”
“He’s a friend of mine. He has a sour attitude a lot but he’s overall a good person, when you get to know him. He’s basically had a tough childhood. He’s not well liked by many humans all because he’s different. You might as well relax until then. I’m sure Sango and Miroku will be with him. Who are also friends of mine.”
Zoe felt tears well up in her eyes. “I’m so confused.”
Kagome looked at Zoe and felt sorry for her. Shaking her head for a moment, she continued to gather some twigs and then made a fire. Once the fire was started, Kagome walked over to Zoe sitting down next to her. She rested a hand on Zoe’s arm.
“Listen, I know how you feel. When I first came here through a well on my family’s shrine, I was totally lost and confused. I was stuck here with not knowing how to get home. That’s how I met Inuyasha. We had a rocky start at the beginning but it soon changed after we met his brother Sesshomaru.”
Zoe looked at Kagome. “You mean that guy who was just here is your friend’s brother?”
“Older half brother,” Kagome answered. “And yes. But Inuyasha and Sesshomaru don’t get along. Sesshomaru blames Inuyasha for their father’s choices. Inuyasha is half demon. And half demons are shunned to the human and demon society.”
“That’s cruel,” Zoe said. “How can someone live like that?”
Kagome shrugged. “I really don’t know but Inuyasha lived it. It must have been so hard for him.” Kagome looked at the fire for a few moments. “So you were searching up your family history?”
“Yeah. My parents would never tell me anything about my Japanese heritage and kept trying to encourage me to go to Japan and find out for myself.”
“Why would they do that?” asked Kagome, confused.
“I don’t know. They know something that I don’t. And the way my Mom was acting when I left for Japan, she was acting like she would never see me again.” Zoe snorted. “Boy isn’t that truth…”
Kagome opened her mouth to speak when a voice yelled from the distance.
At the realization on the voice, Kagome smiled. “Inuyasha’s coming. INUYASHA! OVER HERE!” she shouted.
Zoe nearly felt like jumping out her skin as a young man jumped out from a set of trees a few moments later. He landed down in front of Kagome, who was now standing in front of the fire.
“Kagome! You alright?” he rushed.
“I’m fine,” she reassured him. “Sesshomaru actually didn’t do anything to me. Except bring me here to help her.” Kagome pointed over to Zoe.
Inuyasha’s golden eyes narrowed for a moment. “He wanted your help for a human? That’s not Sesshomaru!”
Zoe now felt real fear course through her as she saw a man and a woman on top of a large flying sabertooth cat. “Oh my god!”
“I’m glad you’re ok,” the woman said, getting off the cat after the animal landed.
“Yeah, I’m fine,” Kagome said. “Guys, meet Zoe. And this is something that is hard to believe but Sesshomaru wanted me to help her.”
“Sesshomaru?” the man asked. “Helping a human? That’s unreal.”
“That’s not the strangest part,” Kagome continued. “Zoe is from the future, my time.”
“What?!” Inuyasha blurted. He looked at the frightened woman again and saw it was true. He recognized the style of clothing she was wearing to those of what other humans in Kagome’s world wore. “How did she get here?”
“Don’t know,” Kagome answered. “Zoe was doing some researched when she suddenly found herself here, landing right in front of Sesshomaru.”
“That makes a bit of sense,” the man said who wore garb worn by Monks in ancient times. “Sesshomaru has been suspecting you’re from the future. He might have thought she was too and wanted your help to solve the puzzle.”
“Speaking of which,” Inuyasha scowled. “Where is the bastard?”
“He left, not too long ago,” Kagome answered. “Guys we have to help Zoe get home.”
The woman who wasn’t really speaking much since calling Kagome’s name walked over to Zoe. She could see how frightened the future woman really was. “It’s ok. We’re not going to hurt you. My name is Sango and the monk is Miroku. Careful around him though, he’s a…”
“Pervert,” Zoe finally answered, finishing for Sango. Inuyasha, Miroku and Sango’s face faulted. Even Shippo gave a look of shock. “Yes, I can tell. He looks the type who is a womanizer.”
Kagome’s eyes widened but she didn’t really give a look of shock too much. She was from the future, which meant she knew a lot about people.
Miroku’s knees gave out. How could a woman know that, by just looking at him? No woman was ever able to see it.
Inuyasha folded his hands into his haori. “How can you tell?”
Zoe turned her attention to the silver haired man. In that moment she noticed Inuyasha looked a lot like Sesshomaru. “Where I’m from, it can be easy to pick out those who could be trouble makers. But then sometimes some people who look like a troublemaker but are not.”
Shippo started snickering. “Hehe, I think you better be careful Miroku.”
“Can we just get out of here?” Inuyasha huffed. “I hate smell of Sesshomaru’s scent.”
“Wait…” Zoe said as she stood. “What does he mean…”
“Demons and half demons have a very keen nose,” Miroku answered, still in shock. “And they can scent other demons.”
Sango offered a hand to the woman, helping her to her feet. She then walked over to Kirara, getting Zoe to meet the large cat just to get her used to the demon. Zoe felt nervous at first but it soon became apparent the large cat wouldn’t hurt her. In fact the large cat, kept rubbing her head against Zoe’s arm, making her hand pet the top of her head. Zoe soon learnt the cat wanted her head scratched. When Zoe felt comfortable enough, the group decided it was time to head back to Kaede’s village.
She had no idea the one person who was very curious of her was watching her. After he ordered his ward and retainer they were leaving, he soon told his retainer to watch over the girl while he went to do something. Without even waiting for a ‘yes’ or ‘no’, he was gone. Masking his scent so his brother wouldn’t pick him up, he watched his brother hand his friends as they spoke to the future woman. He felt drawn to her, as she knew of his name. He continued to watch until they were no longer in sight before he turned and went back to his own followers.
