Chapter 45

Saturday Studying

Scattered in different places around Inuyasha's living room, the group of friends was comparing schedules. "Rin, what did you think of Soujiro?" Sango asked mildly.

She shrugged. "I thought he was okay."

Sango shivered. "Didn't the smile get to you after a while?"

"He's just happy."

Kagome snorted. "I don't care how much he smiles as long as he keeps giving us great books to read." She held up a copy of Gundam Wing. "Have you seen the course book list? Gundam Wing, Rurouni Kenshin, Oh My Goddess..."

She frowned. "Wait a minute. How can the people in the books be the same as our teachers?"

Rin gave her a blank look. "What do you mean?"

Kagome pointed at the cover. "Is that or is that not, Duo, your psychology teacher?"

She looked at the book. "It looks a little like him, but it can't be him."

Kagome blinked and looked back at the book. "Hm..." I don't know, she thought. It's obvious to me who they are, but maybe everyone's just... Oh. I forgot. Kagome, remember, you see what others don't. Got it. Fine. Check. I'm not crazy, the world is.

"What's this Wufei like?" Inuyasha asked abruptly.

Sango thought for a moment. "Stern, likes to explain things, Chinese. Definite authority figure type."

Inuyasha groaned. "I've got Latin with him on Monday."

Later in the evening, Kagome looked over at Sango and asked, "Do you and Miroku have a date tonight?"

Sango shook her head. "We're going to the movies tomorrow afternoon, though."

Inuyasha frowned. "He's a student, right?"

"Yes. At the mage university."

Inuyasha looked at her with a vaguely confused expression on his face. "Does he work or something right now?"

"No. He's going to school full-time and living on his savings."

Inuyasha propped his chin up on his hand. "So why isn't he here?"

Sango stared at him. "Uh..."

"He's a student. You're dating him. We're all studying. If he's got the free time, why isn't he here?"

"Because he was a professor and everybody might feel a little strange?" Kagome answered practically.

"Why?" Inuyasha asked. "Would you?"

Kagome shrugged. "Nah. He's pretty cool in class. And he took the enchantment off when I had that problem with the glass."

"Me, neither. He's your age, Sango, so it's not that he's older than we are. We don't mind him being a teacher. He's your friend, too." Inuyasha looked back at his textbook. "So invite him over next Saturday if everyone's okay with it."

Rin shook her head and Shippo shrugged. "Doesn't matter to me," he said. "You're all older than I am."

"It's your fault for being a genius," Inuyasha told him.

"I am not!"

Kagome glanced at Shippo. He looked up from his book and met her eyes. They both started laughing.

Inuyasha growled at the both of them. "Would you two stop that?"

She tried to contain her laughter. "I'm sorry," she gasped. "But you've never seen her."

"Eyebrows," Shippo said breathless.

Sango shook her head. "I'm going to have to take Sociology just to see Dorothy's eyebrows."

"Other impressions?" Kagome asked.

Inuyasha rolled his eyes. "Wufei's okay. Latin shouldn't be that hard. Recca's still insane." He looked at Sango. "When's Miroku showing up?"

There was a knock on the door and Inuyasha got up. He opened the door and gestured Miroku inside. "Sango's over there, sandwiches are in the fridge, and the cookies are on the table."

Inuyasha walked back to his textbook and Miroku just stared at him wide-eyed. Sango laughed and got up from her spot on the floor. She walked him into the kitchen and got him situated with a plate of goodies. They returned and sat back down to do some serious studying.

They walked side by side down the sidewalk. "I almost didn't find his house," Miroku confided.

"I told you what it looked like."

"I know." They walked in silence for a few minutes. "Did it show?"

Sango gave him a puzzled look. "What?"

"How nervous I was."

"You were nervous? Why?"

Miroku shrugged. "I've taught Inuyasha and Kagome. It's been a while since I was a student."

Sango shook her head. "You were fine. I've got to get to work, so what are you going to do?"

"I think I'm going to go to the library. I want to look up a specific answer."

"Hey! Wait up!"

Sango and Miroku turned to find Shippo running up to them. He stopped and panted for a few seconds and then wordlessly held out a book to Miroku. "You forgot this."

Miroku accepted it. "Thank you."

Shippo grinned at him. "You owe me." Miroku raised an eyebrow. "This is good, because I'm having a problem with my wards homework."

They began walking again and Shippo explained the problem. Miroku dove into the explanation head first. Sango just smiled.
