Tooth Fairy Sesshoumaru

The following just a small story I wrote that I think is really sweet.

"Tooth Fairy Sesshoumaru"

Disclaimer: I do not own Inuyasha nor any of the associated characters. They are Rumiko Takahashi's characters. I am only borrowing them to tell a story.
"Look, Sesshoumaru-sama, look!" Rin said as she ran up to Sesshoumaru.

Sesshoumaru had sitting under a tree meditating. As Rin came running up to him, he was stirred out of his thoughts. When he looked at Rin, he noticed blood coming out of her mouth. He also noticed that she was holding out something white to him.

"Rin lost her first tooth, Sesshoumaru-sama," Rin said with a grin. One of her front teeth could be seen missing. "You know what that means."

"What does that mean, Rin?"

"That means that the tooth fairy will come, take Rin's tooth, and leave her money while she sleeps!"

Sesshoumaru said nothing. He did, however, wonder who this tooth fairy was and why she delivered money in exchange for teeth. I guess I'll find out tonight, he thought.

That night, Rin was excited when it was time to go to sleep. As she laid down by Sesshoumaru, she placed her tooth by her side. She smiled at the tooth until she finally fell asleep.

Sesshoumaru began keeping watch for this 'tooth fairy'. As the night went on, however, no tooth fairy made an appearance.

Hmph, Sesshoumaru thought. This tooth fairy story is just some stupid story told by humans to their pups. How does such a tale survive? Who gives the pups the money? Suddenly, understanding dawned on Sesshoumaru. The parents are the ones who give the money.

Sesshoumaru looked at Rin and then at her little tooth. She had seemed so happy at the thought of getting money for her tooth.

After a moment of contemplation, Sesshoumaru got out some of the coins he had kept from when he killed humans. Reaching over Rin, he picked up her tooth and placed the coins where it had been.


As soon as Rin woke up, she saw the coins laid beside her.

"Sesshoumaru-sama, look!" she said as she tugged on his sleeve and showed him the coins. "The tooth fairy came!"

"Oh, so she did," he said while rising with his back turned to Rin. He was smiling. "So she did."
