Chapter 19

Valentine's Day

Sango closed her book with a flourish. "Done!" she said.

Sitting beside her, Kagome wrote the last word of her answer. "Close behind you," she said quietly, darting a glance at the book.

Across from the two girls, Inuyasha grumbled. "Three more."

Kagome finished her homework and began packing up. "Finished," she announced. "See you tomorrow, Inuyasha. Thank you for the help, Sango."

"No problem," Sango said waving off the thank you.

Inuyasha looked up at her. "Uh-uh," he disagreed.

"What?" Kagome asked, looking at him. "We're not working tomorrow?"

He began packing his stuff. "I'm walking you back to your dorm."

Sango tried not to laugh. It was so typically Inuyasha. Kagome frowned. "I'm nineteen years old."

"By three days," Inuyasha interrupted.

"And I can walk two or three blocks by myself. It's only eight o'clock. There are plenty of people around."

"Yeah, I know you can walk that far. I'm more concerned about people helping you walk that far," Inuyasha grumbled. Everything was packed and he slid out of the book. Sango moved out and Kagome slid into her space.

"I can't believe this," she muttered. "I'm like a five-year-old that can't cross the street by herself."

"But Kagome, you're on the right side of the street," Sango said grinning. "The Special is on the same side as your dorm."

"How many people have asked you for a date tonight?" Inuyasha asked. Kagome shifted her feet and didn't look at him. "Eight. In an hour and a half. While you were already with me and Sango."

Sango smiled at Kagome. "Didn't you say you'd already filled up two trash bags with notes, candy, and flowers?"

She threw her hands into the air. "Fine! You can walk me to the dorm, but I can go inside by myself."

"Deal," Inuyasha accepted.

Inuyasha left her at the door and Kagome walked up the stairs to her room. She sighed. Today had been a tiring day. Constant requests for dates, notes slipped into her backpack, flowers, candy, and notes overflowing her bed...

She unlocked the door and flipped on the light switch. I want to look at my email and go to bed, she thought.

Movement caught her eye and she stared at her bed. She swallowed.

A mass of long black hair moved. Startling blue eyes pierced her gaze and she was frozen to the spot. Sensual lips moved into a lingering smile. "Hello," he said.

Kagome managed to blink. "What are you doing in my bed?" she finally asked.

The smile grew wider. "I'm for you."

"What?" Kagome said in disbelief. She shook her head and took a deep breath. "Out."

The lips went from smiling to pouting. He began to sit up. "But you haven't even" The blanket started to slip. Kagome's eyes widened when the blanket revealed that he wasn't wearing a shirt. A bare foot hit the floor and the blanket slid to the right, showing a bare hip.

Kagome squinched her eyes shut. He's naked, her mind babbled. There's a naked guy in your bed. "Pull the blanket up," she said firmly.


"Because I'm going to leave if you don't." Why Kagome, she thought. That sounds like a really good idea. Leaving before this situation gets worse.

She heard material move and an amused voice say, "You can open your eyes now, little one."

"Little one?" she said, peeking one eye open a slit to make sure he was telling the truth. Kagome opened her eyes and glared at him.

He looked at her and grinned. "Yes. Or would you prefer another name?"

"I'd prefer to know who you are."

He stared at her knowingly. "Does it matter? I am yours to do with as you please for this night."

Kagome tried to puzzle it out. He keeps saying he's mine or for me... "Are you human?" she blurted.

The smile grew wider. "No," he said smoothly. "I'm an incubus."

And what is that, Kagome wondered.

Melly shook her head as she walked up the stairs. She had already passed the two bags of trash set downstairs. Poor kid, she thought. Valentine's Day isn't really romantic for her.

She pushed open the door to her floor and looked down the hall. Chuckling, she took in Kagome's surprised stance. "Hey, Kagome!" she called, walking quickly down the hall. "What is it?"

There wasn't a reply and Melly frowned. "Did your bed break from valentines or something?" she asked. Stepping up beside the girl, she looked into the room, not knowing what she would find.

Melly's eyes focused on Kagome's bed and the male in it. At first she thought, how did a guy get into the room?

Then she noticed the tiny things. The slightly pointed fingernails, the masculine scent, the sensuality in every move the man made.

Melly scowled at him. "Out," she ordered.

He pouted at her. "I wasn't sent for you. I was sent for her," he said, pointing at Kagome.

"Oh, yeah?" Melly challenged. She glared at him. Stepping inside the room, she sketched a symbol in the air and said clearly, "Begone!"

The blankets sagged as the body disappeared. Melly took the extra steps to her bed and sat down. "I'll say this... You've certainly made my last year more interesting," she said, tossing a grin at Kagome.

"What was that?" Kagome asked, taking a step forward.

"An incubus," Melly answered shortly.

"What's that?"

Melly stared at her roommate. "You don't know what an incubus is?"

Kagome shook her head. "It told me what it was, but..."

She took a deep breath. "An incubus is a male sex demon. They exist to have sex. Someone summoned one as a present for you."

Kagome swallowed hard. "Eww..."

"The first thing we are going to do is email your mom," Melly said firmly. "I'm not always going to be your roommate and you need a heavy dispelling agent. Someone in your family has to know how to infuse an object with one."

"Dad's pretty good," Kagome said, walking over to her computer and turning it on.

"Tell them what happened. You had an incubus in your bed and you want something to keep them out." Melly instructed.

Kagome wrinkled her nose as she looked at her bed. "I could really hurt whoever did this."


She looked across at her roommate. "I'm tired and I can't go to sleep in that bed."

"It'll be hard to explain why you want another bed," Melly said joking.

"No, I'll sleep in that bed. I've just got to wash and dry all the sheets first," Kagome said wearily.

Melly glanced at the bed. "Yeah, the scent could make you have strange dreams." She waggled her eyebrows up and down and Kagome laughed.
