This piece has a very striking style - love the pen and ink style against all of the red!

That makes me think of the "Happy Anniversary" song from The Flintstones.

Jakken rushes up next to Sesshoumaru,"What shall we do today, my lord?"

Sesshoumaru doesn`t look at him,"Try not to speak, Jakken. Lately, I`ve had a problem that only leads to my constant annoyance."

Jakken imeddiately silenses himself. It takes some walking but the three arrive at a secluded area where only one house stands. The house is set in a clearing in the forest. But the forest is full of demons, just waiting to attack someone. But the three have no problems as they approach the house. It`s obviously been abandoned. Jakken blinks,"Is this where you`ve gone to, my lord?"

Sesshoumaru doesn`t answer. He walks up to the house,"Rin, this is where you will live. You need to learn to be a human and live a life of one."

Rin follows Sesshoumaru. Jakken blinks,(*Does this mean he`s going to finally leave her? YES!!*)

Jakken dashes up with the two. Sesshoumaru stops at the house,"I made sure the demons in this forest fixed it up and know not to attack you."

Jakken huffs,"You can never be too sure though."

Sesshoumaru looks at Jakken,"You`re right, Jakken, we`ll have to stay here with her for a while until she`s on her feet."

Jakken smiles. Rin looks at Sesshoumaru,"I don`t do human things?"

"Humans...don`t follow demons. So you`ll need to learn to grow your food and catch more than fish."

Jakken ponders to himself,"(*Hmmm, if Rin learns to take care of herself faster, Sesshoumaru and I will leave her sooner. Yes!*) Yes, Rin, it`s very important. We`ll show you all the things it takes to be a human and to take care of yourself."

Sesshoumaru smiles,"Two good ideas in one day, Jakken. I`ll leave teaching her these thigns to you."

Jakken feels his body freezing in place,(*Great...I have to spend MORE time with this girl?*)"Yes my lord."

Sesshoumaru walks off,"I`ll be back in three days. I have to go and make sure the demons know their place."

Jakken sighs,"Well, let`s get started, Rin."

Jakken gets up on the porch and slides the door open,"Hmmm, apparently those demons don`t know how to wash floors...But that`s ok. Rin, washing the floors will be your first lesson."

Rin pokes her head inside the house,"Why would I need to wash the floor?"

"I don`t know, it`s just what humans do."

By the end of the night, Rin has all the floors washed. But now she`s tired. She and Jakken go into a room which will be the bedroom. There`s a bed setup on the floor. Rin gets under the blankets and lays down. Jakken goes outside the house and sits down on the porch,"Hoo, this girl is a lot of work..."

Rin`s voice come sup behind him,"Jakken?"

Jakken jumps,"GYAH! Rin! What are you doing up?"

"I can`t sleep..."

"Rrg...Go back to bed."


Rin goes back inside the house. Three days pass slowly for Jakken and fast for Rin. Both await Sesshoumaru`s return. As soon as night falls on the third day, Sesshoumaru returns. His silver hair flowing in the wind, giving him a regal and elegant appearance more so than what he appears during the day. He calls out to the house,"Rin, Jakken, I`ve returned."

Rin runs up to Sesshoumaru with a bowl with some soup in it,"I saved some soup for you, Sesshoumaru!"

Jakken is sitting on the porch, holding his bowl. His tongue is out of his mouth in disgust,"Still need to work on your cooking skills, Rin..."

Sesshoumaru sniffs the bowl, sipping it,"You`re overreacting Jaken, it just needs less salt."

"But you`re strong all over, Sesshoumaru-sama. It wouldn`t surprise me if you can handle the worst of tastes either."

"There`s a difference between strength and willpower."

Rin goes over to the porch and gets herself another bowl of soup from the cooking pot over the fire. Sesshoumaru finishes his soup, walking up the stairs,"Jakken, how is she progressing?"

Jakken sighs,"Not very well, I`m afraid. She still doesn`t make her own bed, we haven`t gone over laundry, her cooking needs a lot of work and she needs to stop bringing squirrels into the house."

Sesshoumaru closes his eyes,"I`ll stay this time to help her."

Jakken looks at Sesshoumaru,"Another thing we gotta do is teach her which fruits are ok to eat and which ones are poisonous."

Rin looks at Jakken,"But you didn`t get sick."

"That`s because I recognized that poison fruit you brought home before you had a chance to cook it up and make me eat it!"

Sesshoumaru walks inside,"Well, let`s begin, Rin. First, I`ll teach you to make a bed."

Rin stands up and hands Jakken her bowl which still has her unfinished dinner in it. She follows Sesshoumaru inside. Jakken looks at Rin`s bowl,"And she never does her dishes...ugh..."

"That`ll be next then."

Sesshoumaru spends the rest of the month teaching Rin how to make her bed, do dishes, catch more than fish, grow vegetables and which fruits are safe tp eat. One day, Rin goes out into the forest to get more fruit for an upcoming lunch. Sesshoumaru and Jakken are at the house. Jakken looks at Sesshoumaru,"I`d say she`s doing fine now, Sesshoumaru-sama."

Sesshoumaru nods.

"Think she`s ready to be on her own?"

Sesshoumaru sighs. It`s a saddened sigh, the first time Jakken has ever heard one from him,"I think so."

"Are you all right, my lord?"

Sesshoumaru looks at Jakken with his famous bored look,"Fine."

Deep in the woods, Rin is climbing up a tree towards a group of fruit she sees that would be perfect for lunch. She gets onto the branch and starts to pick off the fruit. She hears a growl once she picks the first fruit off. She turns around and looks around. A voice comes up,"What do you think you`re doing?"

"I`m gathering food, of course."

A raccoon demon comes out of the bushes,"Why don`t you get your own food instead of taking it from others, huh?!"

Rin doesn`t seem scared as she has been exposed to demons for years. But the raccoon lunges at her to attack. Rin jumps back with a scream and falls off the tree, landing on the ground with a groan. She gets up to her feet and begins to run but the raccoon demon swipes at her legs and she falls over with another scream. She never had to really defend herself. So fighting isn`t her thing.

The raccoon demon lunges again,"Now you`ll be my food!"

Before he can get her, the raccoon demon is stopped by Sesshoumaru, who has cut him in two,"I warned you, demon."


Rin slowly get to her feet. She has slashes on her leg from the attack. Sesshoumaru looks down at her, then helps her up,"You get yourself into trouble...I won`t always be here to save you, Rin."

"I`m sorry, Sesshoumaru..."

Sesshoumaru brings Rin close to him to pick her up. Being so close to him seems to last forever. Time freezes. Rin can feel her chest begin to feel like it is pounding. She has rarely ever been this close to him. She looks up at Sesshoumaru. Sesshoumaru picks her up,"Let`s go."


Sesshoumaru starts back to the house with her. Jakken is sitting on the porch. He sees Sesshoumaru coming to the house carrying Rin, amazingly well being just one-armed. Jakken blinks, he hasn`t seen Sesshoumaru carry Rin, ever. Sesshoumaru sets her down at the house,"Damn demons apparently don`t understand me. I`ll go into the forest and put them in place again."

"My god, Rin! What have you done to yourself?"

Rin doesn`t answer Jakken. Sesshoumaru brings her inside, laying her in the bed,"Treat her wounds, Jakken."

Jakken sighs,"Yes, my lord.."
