It's been some time since I've written anything for the Silk and Blood
universe...actually since I've written anything for this fandom. Just a little snippet.
Takes place between Chapter I and Chapter II. xDDAU/Canon:
Kagome and Sesshoumaru have their first time banter in bed
It had been a long time since Kagome had thought of herself as a stranger to the notion of hurting in places - and muscles - she'd never even known
she possessed...when one traveled with Inuyasha for as long as she'd had, complaining turned into a luxury of sorts anyway.
Normally, she wasn't the type to indulge...
"Remind me teach you all about having a romantic streak later on."
"Hn. What is it exactly
that you are complaining about, priestess?" Sesshoumaru inquired mildly, nipping at her shoulder like she was some delicious morsel he could take his time sampling.
Well, he could actually. But that was not the point! She was sore
and had a woman's right to complain!
Sesshoumaru wasn't feeling half of the things he'd done to her!
" She mimicked with a touch of humor, turning her head sideways to grin at him unabashed. "I'm not really
complaining about anything - if you exclude the rough bark of that tree you pushed me into a few hours ago...oh! And the fact that the second time around
didn't manage to make it to the bed and you decided that the wall would have to do!"
He shrugged minutely and Kagome thought that it was completely unfair that he could look so graceful with only a sheet on. She had awful bed head after being ravished so thoroughly in one day. "The servants are trained not to see."
"I don't think that the poor servant girl who walked in on us knew
that one!" So much for giving away her virginity to a chivalrous prince with a tender heart...Riiiiiight
. There was a definite lack of those types in this era - and the ones you could pick up here and there, required some serious digging in order to unveil whatever softness they possessed under layers of stubbornness and sometimes homicidal tendencies.
Sesshoumaru dipped his head as if in tacit understanding. Then..."I will dispose of her tomorrow."How to kill the mood in ten syllables or less,
Kagome thought paling a little under her tan. He would do it too..."And we're back to the romantic streak issue again. Sorry, but I don't take human sacrifices - flowers and jewelry will do."
The corner of his lips quirked upwards faintly - though he'd probably deny it with his last breath - and he made quick work of pinning her under him. "You are dangerously predictable."
Understanding dawned on her and she mustered her best defenselessly revolted
glare at him (as Miroku had so kindly put it once before Sango had punched his lights out). "That wasn't funny!"
"On the contrary, Ka-go
-me. I never concede my prey to anyone." Sesshoumaru murmured, leaning down to kiss her before she could further protest.Romance was doomed,
Kagome resolved to herself, melting into his kiss effortlessly, but at least it was good to know that when it came down to plain old kissing, she had dibs on the next best thing.
