Romance

Chapter 1

Nanami's POV

I'm currently sitting on the porch, rubbing my swollen belly. I'm thinking of Tomoe, and where he might have gone. I look up into the night sky, "Where are you Tomoe?"

Tomoe has been gone for almost 6 months now, and there hasn't been a day when I didn't think of him. Tomoe left me one night, and never came back. It wasn't until a month had gone by did I realize I was pregnant. I wonder if Tomoe knew, would he have stayed?

"Nanami, you know you'll get a cold if you sit out here too long." I turn my head to look at Mizuki, my loyal familiar. I laugh, "Yeah, yeah, I know I'll be in soon."

Mizuki turns around, and walks back into the shrine. I still keep up my responsibilities as a long god, in fact I am the only one who has enough power to keep the shrine together. I had to learn to do this, because Tomoe was the one who kept the shrine in working order using his youkai powers.

I don't do nearly as good a job Tomoe did, but I do enough to make Mikage shrine look presentable. I stand up, and I make my way back inside the shrine.

I look inside the kitchen, and I see Tomoe standing there putting mushrooms into tonight's dinner. I quickly rub my eyes, I look back up, and he's gone. Man, I guess I really do miss him.

I sit down at the table with Mizuki, and I eat hamburger. Mizuki looks at my concerned, "Are you feeling alright Nanami? I thought hamburger was your favorite."

I look up at him, "Yeah, I'm fine. Don't worry about me. I'm fit as a fiddle." I say over excitedly.

Mizuki just nods his head, and cleans up the dining room. I get up from my seat, and I decide to head to my room early. I say goodnight to Mizuki, and the spirits of the shrine and I make my way to bed.


Mizuki's POV

"Master Mizuki are you sure Master Nanami is alright?"

I glance up at the shrine spirits, "Yes I'm sure she's fine. She's probably just having a hard time with the pregnancy is all."

I finish cleaning up the kitchen, and I make my way outside to sit under the full moon. I drink sake, and I enjoy the peace and quiet of the nighttime.

"Tomoe I hope you know how much you're hurting Nanami. I hope you never come back, you don't deserve her."

Kotetsu and Onikiri come out, and sit with me on the deck. "Master Tomoe will be home soon, right Mizuki?"

I look at them, "I don't want him here, but if it helps Nanami feel better then I hope that stupid fox comes back."

I sit there with the shrine spirits wondering whatever happened to that stupid fox.


Tomoe's POV

I sit in my prison cell, with chains tying down every limb on my body.

I was forced into coming here by Akura-oh, because he threatened Nanami's life. I didn't want to get her involved in all the violence, so I followed him here. He put me in chains, and separated me from my lady and mistress. I've been locked down here for 6 months, and over these 6 months I've been planning a way to escape.

I think back to the night I left Nanami, I told her I would always protect her, and she told me the same. I knew that would be my last night with her for a very long time, and after she fell asleep, I left. Akura met me outside, and immediately locked me in chains.

Now these 6 months have gone by, and Akura still has no intention of letting me go. He tells me that he will use me soon in order to go receive his long lost body. However, every attempt I tried of receiving the precious body, have failed. Akura just gets more and more angry everyday. He knows that the body he is possessing won't last forever, and the thought just upsets him.

I laugh in his face, because I have a body that will last forever. He has one that is already on it's way to decaying.

I hear a door open upstairs, and slow steady footsteps can be heard descending the stairs. Soon enough Akura is outside my prison cell. "Hello Tomoe."

"What do you want?" I say very tiredly.

"We are going after the body again tomorrow." he states.

"I already told you, it's impossible. Even with my youkai powers, I still cannot reach the top of that mountain."

Akura's body is currently residing on top of a mountain of fire. I may have fox fire, but it is impossible for me to reach.

Akura face twitches with anger, "You will try again, or you can so goodbye to your precious human lover."

He turns, and makes his way out from the dark basement. I lay my head against the wall, and stare up at the cold, wet ceiling. "I'm sorry Nanami, but I'll be home soon. I promise."
