A Daiyoukai's Heart by Aviel


Disclaimer: Though it saddens me to say it, I don’t own anything relating to Takahashi-sensei’s Inuyasha. However, the plot (cuteness overload) of this miniseries does belong to me, and a nod of recognition goes to the creator of this challenge.

A/N: I couldn’t resist the fluff! Enjoy! :)

Chapter 1: Eyeliner

Papa, why do you wear makeup?”

Gold met with gold.

Explain.” The male was a little offended by the curious question, but he wouldn’t tell his daughter that.

Small hands touched his face, tracing his eyelids and aristocratic cheeks.

You gots them here, and here,” she said. “Mama only puts some on her mouth and eyes.”

Sesshoumaru arched a brow. “Her eyes?” While he understood Mika’s reference to his mate’s lipstick, the one to the latter was a bit unclear. Though prideful and stubborn he was, even he could admit to not knowing something, if only to himself.

He was no expert when it came to cosmetics.

Uh-huh!” his daughter chirped. “She wears…umm…” Dark brows furrowed together in thought. “Eye…liner?” she said slowly, unsurely. “And she uses a black pencil!”

“…Is that so?” Sesshoumaru didn’t think Kagome would take a pencil to the eye. She wasn’t that adventurous.

Mm-hmm! Come on!” She grabbed his hand. “I’ll show you, Papa! Mama won’t mind!”

Two minutes later, the silver-haired daiyoukai found himself standing in the bathroom, his excited pup perched on the counter in front of him. He stared at the ceiling as he tried to ignore whatever she was doing to his face.

Are you sure that you know what you are doing?” he rumbled, earning a light tap on the nose.

Of course, Papa! Mama taught me how! You’ll be so pretty, too!”


Shh! Be patient!” she scolded.

Another ten minutes later, Kagome stumbled across the two loves of her life, and couldn’t help the highly amused titter that escaped from her lips.

What are you guys doing?”

Mama!” Mika jumped off the counter and into her mother’s arms, nuzzling the side of her neck. “I was making Papa look nice! He kinda looks like Mrs. Stuffy!”

Biting her lip to keep from giggling at the expression on Sesshoumaru’s face, Kagome took in their daughter’s handiwork with twinkling sapphire orbs. With the crudely drawn dark circles around his eyes, he looked like a grumpy panda bear. Interestingly enough, that was what Mika’s favorite stuffed animal happened to be.

He does! You did such a wonderful job, sweetheart!”

Smiling widely at the praise, Mika looked expectantly at her father. He was currently staring at his reflection in the mirror, looking neither happy nor displeased.


At the wavering uncertainty in Mika’s voice, Sesshoumaru stood beside his little girl and his wife. “Who is your ‘Papa,’ little one? My name is… He hesitated. Mr. Stuffy.”

His daughter squealed in delight, and he proceeded to tickle her senseless, Kagome joining soon after.
