The First Fight by JazaraRose
The First Fight

"Fuck." Inuyasha unintentionally spoke out loud. Every eye in the room was on him and it was making him sweat, especially the stormy gaze eyeing him warily. Sango looked absolutely confused, Miroku looked at him apologetically realizing the pile of shit he'd dumped on his friend, and Kikyou looked at him mischievously her smirk creeping up into her eyes.

"Inuyasha? What's the problem?" Kagome said with a concerned look on her face.

"It's nothing, let's eat!" Inuyasha said quickly flashing her a nervous smile. The rest of the evening went on without a hitch, though his nervous energy was palpable to everyone within a mile radius. After dinner Kagome and Kikyou made themselves busy by starting the clean up, while Inuyasha took it upon himself to usher Sango and Miroku out.

"Good luck dude." Miroku said with that same apologetic look as before settling on his face. Inuyasha grimaced and resisted the urge to punch his dense friend in the face. Shutting the door behind his friends, the young man walked into the kitchen feeling as though he was being lead to the slaughter.

Kikyou looked up at him upon his entrance and he sent her a harsh glare, silently telling her to beat it. He quickly moved to Kagome's side taking Kikyou's place in drying the dishes. Minutes passed without anyone saying a word, before Kagome turned to regard her boyfriend.

"You ready to tell me why you've been acting so weird."

"W-weird? I'm not sure what you're talking about." Inuyasha said never once looking at her.

"Oh no? You've been fidgeting around ever since Miroku brought up how you two met Kikyou."

"About that...Kagome, Kikyou and I-"

"It's fine if you partied with my cousin Inuyasha, Kikyou's always been a bit of wildchild." Kagome laughed cutting him off and returning to the dishes.

Inuyasha chuckled half-heartedly and excused himself from the kitchen.

Rubbing his temples, Inuyasha mentally berated himself for chickening out on telling Kagome the truth. He sighed and walked into the bedroom him and Kagome basically shared. Flopping face first onto the queen sized bed, Inuyasha let the silence of the room wash over him and calm his nerves.

Soon he felt a light weight settle on his lower back and dainty hands rub the tension from his shoulders. Melting at the ministrations he let out a low groan. Wet skin dampened his shirt and he felt the small hands creep under his shirt as they continued to message the broad expanse of his back. Smirking to himself Inuyasha quickly dislodged his companion and rolled over to pin her to the bed. He noticed the towel and absently wondered how Kagome had snuck in and showered without him noticing. Nevertheless, the towel was off in a matter of seconds though the sight of two sliver nipple rings had him backing off.

"What the...?" He lifted his eyes to meet Kikyou's smirking cocoa orbs. He moved to scramble off her, but her legs wrapped around his waist kept him firmly in place.

"What the hell are you doing?! Get off of me!" Inuyasha yelled as he tried to untangle himself.

"What's wrong Inuyasha? It's nothing you haven't seen before." She said lowly.

"That was a long time ago! I'm with Kagome now, your freakin' cousin for fuck's sake!" He felt her uncross her ankles and took that opportunity to backpedal away from the girl until his back hit the wall across from the bed.

"So? You were so good to me all those years go, I'm sure you're even better now." Kikyou inched her way off the bed, not bothering to put on the towel Inuyasha had stripped her of. She was close now, licking her lips in invitation.

"I just want a little taste Inuyasha. We don't even have to tell her." She whispered, her face inched closer and closer to his as she steadily rose to her tip toes.

Kagome dried her hands as she finished putting away the last of the dishes. Grabbing a large pot she stood on the tip of her toes to try and put it away on the top shelf, but she was too short. She pouted at her small stature but soon shrugged it off. That's what tall boyfriend's were for.

She quickly made her way down the short hallway into her bedroom, more than positive that's where Inuyasha had been hiding out all this time. Opening the door with her free hand she waltzed in completely clueless and began to ask for Inuyasha's help.

"Inuyasha could you help me with-" Looking up, she gasped at the sight before her. Her nude cousin pressed up against her boyfriend of over a year. Or rather her ex-boyfriend.

Inuyasha looked up as Kagome entered the room and for a moment he couldn't breathe. He met her eyes and saw the exact moment her heart broke. Tears pooled in her eyes and spilled down her cheeks, and Inuyasha knew he'd never forget that look on her face for as long as he lived.

"Kagome it's not what it looks like!" He yelled shoving Kikyou away. He knew it was the oldest, most cliche phrase to use in a moment like this, but it was the truth. He continued to move toward her and his heart clenched when she moved away from him.

"Get out." She whispered, clutching the pot she'd been unable to put away as if it was a lifeline.

"Kagome please. If you just let me explain!" He ducked as the pot she'd been holding flew towards his face and collided with the wall behind him.

"I said GET OUT!" Kagome sobbed. Lowering his head he slowly moved past her, whispering out a quiet apology only meant for her ears. "Don't come back Inuyasha." She said in response, only slipping to her knees when she heard the door slam.

"Kagome..." The frail girl looked up at the sound of her name, the cousin she'd forgotten about in the chaos standing before her, a small cotton towel covering her frame.

"I'm going to bed." Kagome said finally standing to her feet. She moved towards the bathroom intent on drawing a hot bath, so she could cry on her own. "I want you gone by the time I wake up in the morning."

And just like that the only thing Kagome had believed would last forever, was gone.

End Notes:
Most of the chapters have been pretty fluffy so far, but all relationships hit a rough patch and the next few chapters will be showing that.
