A Taiyoukai's Love by cassandra

Chapter 1

Kagome was walking to the well one day to go home after she'd had an arguement with Inuyasha. She stopped as she felt a powerful aura.

"That aura feels familiar but who's is it?" She asked herself. She got her answer a few minuets later when she came across an unconscious Sesshomaru.

"Sesshomaru!" She gasped in horror. His beautiful perfect white hair was covered in blood. He had claw marks on his face and one of his eyes had come close to being clawed out. The most horrifying of his wounds were the ones on his stomache and chest. The one on his chest was only inches from his heart. He was cold and pale. Kagome was actually afraid for the lord of the west.

"Sesshomaru? Can you hear me? Sesshomaru? Wake up!" She got no response. She sighed. She was glad that she remembered to bring her supplies with her. First she gathered some firewood for a fire. Then she went to the nearest stream and got two pans of water. She boiled the water while she took off all his cloathes except for his pants. Even though he was injured she was practically drooling over his body.

"Get your head out of the gutter girl. This is Sesshomaru. He'd never look at you that way." She said to herself.

When the water was finally warm, she began to clean his wounds. The water was red from all the blood by the time she had all his wounds clean. She took out a bottle of alcohol and hoped that he wouldn't try to kill her from the sting it would cause. She was surprised when all he did was stiffen and hiss in pain and never once woke up.

"Poor guy. I can't believe anyone would do this to someone." She said as she washed his hair the best she could with the other pan of water that she'd heated. By the time she was all done cleaning him and bandaging him, she was exhausted. Since he was still cold, she covered him with her blanket and fell asleep next to him. The next morning when she woke up she tried to wake him but still got no response.

"Damn. He needs to eat and drink. I might be able to get him to drink something at least." She said as she grabbed a bottle of water and sat behind him. She placed his head in her lap and gave him tiny sips of water. She sighed in relief as he drank the water.

This went on for a few days. She would check his wounds, forced him to drink and she never left his side unless it was for water or she needed to relieve herself. A few demons tried to attack them but she quickly took care of them.

On the fourth day of taking care of him, she was eating some ramen when she heard him moan as he began to stir. She was at his side in an instant.

"Sesshomaru?" She smiled as he slowly opened his eyes. Without thinking, she threw herself on him in a fierce hug. She pulled away when he hissed in pain.

"Thank goodness you're alright!"

He snorted. "Of coarse I'm alright human. These wounds would never kill this Sesshomaru."

"Why you big jerk! I've been by your side for days taking care of you and this is the thanks I get! I was worried about you."

"This Sesshomaru never asked for your care."

"Of coarse not dummy! You were unconscious! I even had to fight off demons who tried to attack you!"

"Hn." 'This woman cared for me and protected me? Why? What is she after?' He wondered.

"Are you hungry or thirsty?"

"As if you could catch food human."

She glared at him. "I happen to be a good hunter you jackass!"

"This Sesshomaru begs to differ."

"Well then I guess I'll just have to prove it." She said. She placed a barrier around him for protection and walked off with her bow and arrows.

He had just started to drift off to sleep when there was a sudden thud next to him. He looked down and saw a large boar with an arrow sticking out of its side.

"Well? Is the mighty Sesshomaru pleased?" She asked smiling smugly.

He lifted an eyebrow. "Well done miko. It seems you're good for something after all."

"Why you jerk!" She shouted. He glared at her. She sighed as she sat down and began to cut up the boar.

"Cooked, rare or raw?" She asked.

"Pardon?"

"Your meat. How do you prefer it?"

He decided to mess with her. "When I'm in my true form, I eat live prey. When I'm not, I prefer it rare." He said smirking. He figured since she was a human, she wouldn't be able to handle the way he ate.

She shrugged her shoulders. "Ok."

"Ok? You mean the way this Sesshomaru eats doesn't bother you?" He was a little surprised. He figured that she would be grossed out and gagging.

She looked at him in confusion. "Um, why would it? I eat my meat rare. Sometimes I even like to eat it a little bloddy. It totaly freaks my brother out. I think it's more juicey and tender that way."

"Indeed." He said.

They sat in silence waiting for their food to get done. She made his plate and took it to him and sat it in his lap.

"Uh...aren't you going to eat?" She asked when he made no move to touch his food.

"I cannot."

"What do you mean you can't?" She asked feeling a little insulted.

He looked away from her. "This Sesshomaru cannot move. The demon that fought me injected me with a poison that leaves the victom unable to move. It takes a week or two to wear off."

"Oh. Well...I know you don't really like help and that you don't like humans, but I could help you. I promise to never breath a word to a living soul about this."

He thought it over and sighed. "Very well."

She smiled and went to work cutting up his food. At first she was a little nervous. Here she was all alone and feeding the most feared youkai in all of Japan! Even though she knew he was deadly, she looked in his eyes as she fed him and felt strangely calm. His eyes were like golden suns that could melt the coldest of hearts.

Sesshomaru smirked when she gazed into his eyes. He knew she was attracted to him. As she stared at him, he couldn't help but notice how beautiful she was even if she was human.

"You have the most beautiful eyes I've ever seen on a woman. Even if you are human, any man can get lost in those beautiful blue eyes." He said. He smirked as she blushed.

"Th-thanks."

"So where is the moron?"

"Don't even get me started on that idiot! He pissed me off so bad and I gave that dog the sitting of a lifetime!"

"Oh? What were you arguing about this time?"

She blushed. "He's been hanging around Miroku too long that's what!"

"What did he do?"

"He was spying on me while I was bathing! I know that he's done it before and I always sat him for it, but this time was just a little different." She said blushing.

"How so?" He asked. He was pretty sure he knew where this was going but he loved to watch her squirm.

"I...uh...I heard some weird noises and growling. Then I heard my name and I looked up and saw him sitting in a tree. I saw him...I saw his...he was doing THAT the damn perv!"

He chuckled. "Miko, my brother is many things but he's still a man with needs. A man needs pleasure and release once in awhile. Though Inuyasha wouldn't have a clue what to do with a woman since he's never been with one sexually."

"Can we not talk about his sex life!"

"Well we could talk about yours." He teased.

"Sesshomaru!!" She yelled as she turned cherry red.

"Don't worry miko. I know that you are still pure." He smiled at her blush.

"Let's talk about something else."

He sighed. "Do you never shut up?"

She smiled. "Nope."

He sighed in annoyance. "What do you wish to talk about?"

"Um...let's talk about you."

He lifted his eyebrow."What about me?"

"Tell me some of the things you like to do. How old are you? Do you got a girl in your life? How long have you been a lord? Do you-"

"Stop! One question at a time." He interrupted.

"Ok."

"To answer your questions, this Sesshomaru is eight hundred years old. I've been lord ever since father died which has been for about four hundred years now. As for what I like to do, I thought that would be obvious. I battle and annoy my brother. I train when given the chance. This Sesshomaru has no woman but I am looking." He smirked looking deep into her eyes at that last comment.

"Are you flirting with me?"

He snorted and rolled his eyes. "As if I, lord Sesshomaru would lower myself to flirt with you human."

"Yeah right you big jerk! You were just going all gaga over my eyes a few minuets ago!"

"Hn."

"So...you told me about yourself, what do you want to know about me?"

"You are annoying and hang around that loud mouth brother of mine. That's more than I need to know."

"Well excuse me! I'll have you know that I am very interresting and have many good qualities and so does Inuyasha! I'll just leave you to yourself then. I'm going to bed!"

"Finally, I'll get some peace and quiet." He mumbled.

"Hmp!" She said as she pulled her sleeping bag out and lay by him and went to sleep.

"Insufferable woman. How does the half breed put up with her? I'll have to hand it to him though, he does have an eye for beauty for she is a beautiful woman. It's too bad she's a human otherwise she'd be a perfect mate for me." His eyes widened at that thought. "What am I thinking! There's no way I would take her as a mate! The demon's poison has messed with this Sesshomaru's mind."

A/N: I don't own Inuyasha or it's charactors. As with all of my stories, I do write on other sites and you may have read them. So I did NOT steal them. Also be prepared for a lot of lemons in this story!
