Inu No Taisho sat in his chair at his office, he just got off the phone with his eldest.


  *Sweet dreams are made of this, who am I-* 

Sesshomaru: Hello Father.

Inu No: Son.

Sesshomaru: How may I help you Father?

Inu No: Meet me in my office at 4 I need to speak to you.

Sesshomaru: *mumbling in the backround to his mate* Ill be there Father.


*end flashback

He gently tapped his claws on the desk it was 3:50 his son was bound to be here any moment.

He heard a knock on his office door before he smelt his sons scent.

  "Son" was all Taisho got out before his son was sitting in front of him.  The pup was extremely impatient since his mate was at home taking care of their 2 year old son.

  "Father" Sesshomaru said before he sat down, Riku his 2 year old was at home with his mate and she had been acting very odd lately and he wanted to find out what was wrong with her.

  "Do you know why you are here Sesshomaru?" The older demon was going to tell the story of he and Kimi.

  "No father, I do not know why I am here." Sesshomaru was stumped, his Father never called him in on his day off  unless it was an emergency.

  "My son how much do you know about your mother?" Taisho watched his son carefully. 

  " I know her name was Kimi and I look like a male version of her with your build."  Sesshomaru knew better than to say too much considering that was almost all he knew about his beloved mother he vaguely remembered her.

  "Im going to tell you what happened to her."

                                                         By the time I was your age, I'd give anything

                                                         To fall in love truly, was all I could think

                                                         That's when I met your mother, the girl of my dreams

                                                         The most beautiful woman, that I'd ever seen

"I remember her sitting there on the park bench crying her eyes out." Taisho smiles faintly "She looked up at me when I stood infront of her and right then I understood she was the one."

                                                         She said, "Boy can I tell you a wonderful thing?

                                                         I can't help but notice, you're staring at me.

                                                         I know I shouldn't say this, but I really believe,

                                                         I can tell by your eyes that you're in love with me."

"As the days flew by we would talk at the park on the same bench.  I remember she gave me a major scare when she said she could tell I loved her." 

                                                             Now son Im only telling you this because can do terrible things.

                                                         Now, most of the time we'd have too much to drink

                                                         And we'd laugh at the stars and we'd share everything

                                                         Too young to notice, and too dumb to care

                                                         Love was a story that couldn't compare.

"There were nights we would sneak down to the boat docks to get drunk and we'd laugh and we'd talk about everything."  Taisho grinned a faint twinkle in his eye, he wasnt sitting infront of his son anymore he was with his wife in his mind on the night he proposed to her.     "Now, son, I'm only telling you this because life can do terrible things you'll learn, one day, I'll hope and I'll pray, that God shows you differently.

                                                         I said, "Girl, can I tell you a wonderful thing?

                                                         I made you a present with paper and string.

                                                         Open with care now, I'm asking you, please.

                                                         You know that I love you, will you marry me?"

Sesshomaru thanked his father and went home to his family, where he found his mate on the phone sobbing.  

She said, "Boy can I tell you a terrible thing? It seems that I'm sick and I've only got weeks. Please, don't be sad now, I really believe,you were the greatest thing that ever happened to me."

                                                         *20 years later*

Sesshomaru was in his study staring at the picture of his mate, his son, and himself.  It was taken two weeks before she passed and they were all smiling at the camera.  He called for his son 15 minutes ago and told him the story of his mother Kagome. 

A day later Sesshomaru had passed on to be with his mate Kagome the last thing he said to his son was "Slow, so slow I fell to the ground on my knees. So don't fall in love, there's just too much to lose if you're given the choice, then I beg you to choose to walk away, walk away, don't let her get you. I can't bear to see the same happen to you. Now, son, I'm only telling you this because life can do terrible things."

                                                        *3 years later*

Riku stood infront of his parents graves with his mate and her swollen belly by his side.  He left white roses on their graves and whispered    "Thank you."   If he would've looked behind him when he walked away he would've seen his parents smiling at him.

                                                                  The end!
