I'll See You Again Prologue: Goodby loveInuyasha: I will see you again
Prologue: Good-Bye Love
Dad! Dad come quickly its mom!” a young female voice called out from the family’s garden. A younger boy and their father ran to see what was wrong.
A gasp was heard followed by the thud of a bucket hitting the ground. “Kagome!” he ran to her side and took her in his arms.
“Inuyasha, it hurts.” Kagome sobbed into his chest as he held her closer. Despite the years that had past Inuyasha still looked young, maybe 6 to 7 years older while Kagome had aged 15 years.
Inuyasha scooped her up and carried her to their large house. “Keade I need you to go get Miroku. Now!” Keade nodded leaving her younger brothers with their father. “Keiji go to the storehouse and get an extra blanket.”

The Coffee GodThe Coffee God behind the counter shuffles foot to foot, a dance of steam and espresso. Black painted fingernails, inch gauged ears and a gray striped sweatshirt, hood crooked on his back. There's a cigarette tucked behind one ear; it bobs and twitches with each step.
“Non-fat caramel latte,” he calls, just as he always does, part of a spell, part of a mantra, toneless (just a tuck at the end). I reach. He looks up.
The espresso maker hisses.
There's something like a grin, something like a spark, something like a shared secret linked eye to eye. When he passes over the drink (rough cardboard sleeve hot to the touch), he lingers. Our fingers brush, a shiver, a jolt, a ten-watt shock.
The Coffee God tilts his chin, shouts, “Hey, mind if I take my break now?”
and ducks around the counter without waiting for a reply.
He slips his cigarette between his lips without taking his eyes from mine. I follow him out the door.
