Scarlet Thread, Midnight Ribbon.
Return.Rin looked around, her long black her swaying in the wet night air.
Slowly she picked up a fallen tiger-lily, and put it carefully in her hair.
'Five years... five years since he left her in the village.' She thought, a small tear rolling down her cheek.
She blinked her large hazel eyes, shaking her head.
"Nothing to cry over anymore Rin." She said to herself.
Slowly she made her way to her small hut on the out-skirts of Kaede's village.
A small cat walked in front
"Hey, Kirara. Sorry, I don't have anything for you today." She said, shooing the little cat.
Quietly, she opened her door, slipping inside quickly.
The cold space made her feel at home.
She pulled a small lighter from the sleeve of her kimono, a gift from Kagome.
She through fire wood in a small pit, flicking the wheel at the top of the lighter, sending a small flame into existence.
She bent down and placed the flame on a large stick.
The fire quickly burst to life, making a warm glow surround the space.
She looked out a small window at the impending twilight.
She turned back to the fire, pulling a small iron skillet and a strip of meat from the hooks that dangled above her head.
She carefully pulled the skillet from the flames searing tongues, hoping to burn her.
A smile played on her lips at the meat.
'I love cooking...' She thought quietly to herself.
She quietly placed a small cut of the meat in her mouth.
Quietly she placed the washed skillet on it's hook.
The moon was supposed to be full today...
She turned to the window again' expecting to see a large silver orb.
Instead, what stared back at her were two small golden orbs.
