Prelude: an Inuyasha Roleplay

The walk back to Sesshoumaru-sama's estate, one Yuufa had endured several times at this point in time, was not surprisingly eventful. She was still obviously exhausted, more-so now because of the fact that she hadn't really rested during the time that had been allowed. Damp clumps on once lustrous, ebony hair clung to her pallid, glistening skin, and the youkai princess found herself beginning to lag behind Sesshoumaru as they neared his castle, the structure looming in the distance almost ominously.

Yuufa knew what that meant... No more attempts to better their relations. This was the moment of reckoning. Meetings would commence immediately upon a bath and return to her usual attire, and the youkai knew that she'd done little earn Sesshoumaru-sama's respect, even in the days that they'd traveled together. She shuddered to think of what Mother would do to her if she failed...

Pointed ears drooped, but Yuufa pressed herself on, not wishing for Sesshoumaru-sama to leave her behind, which she had little doubt in her mind that he would have any problems with at all. With the last ounces of her energy, she jogged up to fall again a mere step or two behind him and to the side. Her breathing was heavy as the sun beat down upon her. Night would come soon, but, before it did, Yuufa was finding herself exceedingly uncomfortable due to the wretched spite of that damned sun.

As the castle drew ever closer, she gulped audibly, steeling herself to pose a question.

"Shall I prepare for meeting this evening, my lord?" she inquired, overly polite, a bit stiff, and still hesitant but, at least she wasn't stuttering so much any longer.

Yuufa sighed, quickly covering her inappropriate expression of relief that she would be allowed rest before the fateful meetings would occur. Though she would still probably make a fool out of herself, the event would be decidedly less of a botch if she were allowed a good, night's (or day's) sleep. Sesshoumaru-sama was probably being simply kind to his guest out of necessity for diplomatic purposes. She doubted he needed to rest; he hadn't faltered once since their journey had begun. The princess allowed herself a small giggle at his comment, all-to amused at the observation because she knew it to be true. She imagined Yutaro-sama's barely contained rage should she pass out during negotiations.

"Thank you, Sesshoumaru-sama," she managed.

Yuufa's eyes widened in surprise when she felt the glaring heat of the sun ease just enough to be noticeable. Her expression was not one of shock so much as it was of actual, genuine confusion and borderline bewilderment. Until that moment, she hadn't thought Sesshoumaru-sama even realized she was with him at all aside from a few, small acknowledgments here and there.

The almost-conversational comment that followed the almost-kind action perplexed her even further. It took the startled youkai a moment to collect her thoughts before answering.

"H-hai, Sesshoumaru-sama. We are used to the cold of the Northern Lands. Mother's domain is located in a cold area of the world. It is mostly dark, and, even when the sun manages to shine, it's cool enough that it isn't so much of a bother," she answered, steadying herself after the first stumble through a force of sheer willpower. "Not much grows there, though..." her voice trailed off, almost lamenting that fact.

Sesshoumaru continued to approach his palace, giving the girl's words a single nod. At the mention of nothing growing there, the tall inuyoukai looked down at the small girl and wondered if the inhabitants of her land were included there.

A cold and barren land. Perhaps the North was not so bad, after all.

Upon stepping towards the massive doors, Sesshoumaru through them open and walked briskly in, moving quickly to his own quarters. "Jaken," he said to the green toad that had followed after them. "Find Yuufa-hime's people and tell them that the talks shall begin after we have rested from our journey."

Wit his first order to his new and willing servant, Sesshoumaru disappeared up the stairs, his hand already unfastening his armor as he went up.

((Sorry for the short crappiness of it but... yeah... me a bit scattered, so I'm doing my best. ~_~))
