AU-ish...in the Little 'Yasha universe, but just Rin's questions for Sess. *grins*
PG rating and no shota, surprise surprise!!!
“Sesshoumaru-sama? Why does Lord Inuyasha call houshi-sama “Daddy”?”
We could ignore her chatter, as we do. But she would ask again. And with more questions we do not wish to answer. “The monk is Inuyasha’s foster father.” That should satisfy her. And it does, for a few moments, until she trots up to walk beside him again, looking up at him with curious dark eyes. Such a pretty child.
“Lord Inuyasha is your brother, right Sesshoumaru-sama?”
“Is Miroku-sama your foster father too, Lord Sesshoumaru?”
That gives us pause. “No, Rin.”
“But why not? If Lord Inuyasha is your brother, and Miroku-sama is his foster father, than he must be your foster father too, right Sesshoumaru-sama?”
“No, Rin.” We pause a moment. “We are much older than Inuyasha. We do not require such a person in our lives.”
“Oh.” Blessed peace. “Lord Sesshoumaru, are you my foster father? Can I call you Daddy?”
“We are not your foster Father, we are your Lord. You will continue to address us as such.”
“Yes, Lord Sesshoumaru.”
That is better, and we are glad to have the matter settled. Until…
“Is Miroku-sama Miss Kagome’s foster father too?”
“No, Rin. Why do you ask?”
“Because she calls Miroku-sama Daddy too. I heard her, when they were talking about their chickens.”
Chickens? “When was this Rin?”
She tilts her head, remembering. “Three days ago. I heard them talking.”
Three days previous we had been following a dead end lead on Naraku. But chickens?
“Miss Kagome said Lord Inuyasha has the prettiest chicken. She says it’s pink. I have never seen a pink rooster before. But she said houshi-sama’s chicken was ugly, big and hairy. I wanted to see, but Jaken wouldn’t let me. He made me go back to camp, and I didn’t even get to say hello to Miss Kagome either. She sounded very happy too.” His girl pouts, and it is adorable. But…chickens?
“Sesshoumaru-sama, how can a chicken be hairy?”
Suddenly it clicks. “Rin. The monk, and our brother…the human priestess did not by chance mention their ‘cocks’ did she?”
“That’s what I said, Lord. Their chickens. But I don’t understand how they can keep chickens if they don’t even have a house where they live. They travel all around, don’t they Sesshoumaru-sama?”
“Rin, this conversation will cease now.”
“Yes, my Lord.” It is quiet for several minutes. Then…”Lord Sesshoumaru? Can cocks be hairy and pink at the same time?”
We absolutely refuse to dignify that with an answer.
