Ten years before…
"Lady Kaede, please take Rin in. It's better for her to be in
human company." Sesshomaru said.
"Alright, I'll take good care of her for you. Do visit her often,
"said Lady Kaede. Sesshomaru nodded and left.
"Sesshomaru-sama…" Rin's voice trailed off as tears welled up in
Ten years later…
"Sesshomaru-sama, please take Rin with you." Sesshomaru turned
There stood a determined eighteen year old Rin. Throughout the
years, Rin have gown to become a great woman. He saw her progress
silently and secretly from afar during the day and secretly
visited her during the night. He only visited the town and
dropped by to give Rin something once a year.
"No" he said coldly and turned away.The moment he started
walking, he could hear Rin walking too.He stopped and said "Go
back Rin."Rin however remained silent and defiant."When did she
become so bold and brazen" he wondered to himself."Suit
yourself."He simply said then took flight in the air.Rin whistled
for A-Uhn and A-Uhn came.She swiftly climbed onto A-Uhn and took
off after Sesshomaru."Wait for me…" a faint desperate cry
came.Jaken was once again left behind.
For three days and three nights, Sesshomaru did not stop to rest
at all.He continued to go on as per normal.A-Uhn did not stop too
because Rin was determined to get to Sesshomaru so for three days
and three nights.She did not eat, drink nor sleep.
They approached the snowy mountains and Sesshomaru stopped
flying.He trudged through the thick snow and blizzard.Rin was ill
prepared.The kimono she wore was not thick enough to protect her
from the cold but nevertheless she pressed on.Struggling with the
cold and the need to catch up with Sesshomaru, Rin made her way
slowly.The wind made it difficult to see and the snow made
movement difficult for Rin.
Rin was exhausted, starving, and freezing but nonetheless,
determined.Sesshomaru watched on painfully as he saw Rin falling
down hard and picking herself up repeatedly only to find herself
falling harder.He wanted to go forward by her side to help her
but he could not.He know that if he went down now to help her,
she would never learn.He waited until she ran out of energy and
lay motionless in the snow before rushing to rescue her.
"Sesshomaru-sama…." Rin uttered these before falling
unconscious.Sesshomaru could hear it clearly even through it was
from a distance.Scooping up the unconscious Rin in his arms he
carried her all the way back to his palace.
When Sesshomaru reached the palace, he quickly laid Rin one of
the quest chamber's beds and rushed off to brew medicine for
her.Rin had caught a cold in the sow and was burning up with
fever.It was not difficult to find the herbs required to brew the
medicine because Sesshomaru's palace was well stocked for he had
anticipated this happening.
Meanwhile, Rin was having a dream.She dreamt of seeing Sesshomaru
once more in the snow before losing consciousness and drifting
away into the darkness."Rin…." A soft and familiar voice
called."Rin…." The thing she saw was the familiar face of
Sesshomaru. "Sesshomaru-sama…" She called out."Drink the medicine
while it's hot."Sesshomaru said plainly.Rin complied obediently
without questions.When Rin finish the medicine, Sesshomaru tucked
her in head and started to walk away.Rin asked "Sesshomaru-sama
is Rin being a burden?"Sesshomaru's topped short.For a moment
there seemed to be an awkward silence.Finally Sesshomaru managed
to utter"No" after much struggle.As he walked away he thought
bitterly to himself "I'm sorry Rin.It is I who isn't good enough
