I could feel a cold cloth on my forehead. The liquid from the cloth ran down my cheek and left a cold chill on my face. I opened my eyes and saw the dark sky above. Stars shone down brightly and illuminated the area around me. I turned my head and saw Kagome's face laying next to me. She looked so pale in the moonlight.
"Kagome," I whispered. She stirred and her beautiful brown eyes opened.
"Inuyasha," she said.
"Hey." I smiled.
"Hey yourself. How are you feeling?"
"Tired. Very tired," she said, looking away and up at the sky. "Looks like we both survived again." I followed her gaze up towards the sky.
"Yeah. Miroku must have exorcised Akumu." I pulled the cloth off my head and sat up. The world spun for a moment but then it stopped leaving me with a huge headache. I turned and pulled Kagome into my arm, laying her head gently down on my arm. I wiped the dirt off her face with the cold cloth. "Kagome I am so sorry for all of this," I said. She looked up at me and smiled.
"Oh stop it," she said. "We are safe and that is all the counts."
"But look at how hurt you are!" I exclaimed. "And all my fault!!" Kagome put her hand on my face.
"Inuyasha just because you are afraid does not mean you are weak. It just shows how much you care. I am afraid too sometimes but I can't let that stop me from living and trying to do everything in my power to keep those I love safe. You kept me safe to the best of your ability. That's all I need." I pulled her close and kissed her gently.
"I love you Kagome. I will always protect you."
"And I will always protect you Inuyasha."
