Chapter 5

A Towel

Kagome nodded as Sango pointed out the error. "I get it. So this number has to be moved over here before it can be moved down to the next step."

"Yes. See, you're not having that much trouble with it."

She sighed. "I'd feel a lot better if I could have another hour with these. I can't believe we've learned so much in a month." Kagome glanced at her watch. "It's already nine. I still have to read that chapter for Diagrams."

Sango shrugged. "Class doesn't start until nine thirty. We can fit in another hour tomorrow morning?"

"Are you sure?" Kagome said eagerly. Sango nodded. "Thank you! Meet me at my room at eight? We'd have an hour before we really needed to leave for class."

Sango raised an eyebrow. "Skipping a meal right before a test?"

Kagome winced. "Oh, yeah. That's right. Trying to finish a math test because my stomach's trying to vocalize 'feed me' isn't good. Um... Seven thirty?"

Sango agreed and Kagome packed up her things.

Sango looked around at the door numbers. "Second floor," she mumbled. "Thirty-two."

Finding the right door, she extended her right hand and tapped it with her knuckles. Kagome opened the door a few seconds later. "Come in," she said. "I just woke up so I probably won't make a lot of sense."

She chuckled. "Where's your roommate?" Sango asked, seeing the empty bed.

"I told her that you were coming over early to study and she left for breakfast early." Kagome shrugged. "I didn't think anything could persuade her to get up that early, but apparently she has a math-phobia."

The two girls giggled as they settled their math books on the floor. There really wasn't enough space on either of the beds or at the small desk for two. Kagome wrote down the problem from the book and began solving it with Sango making sure she was doing it right.

Kagome seemed to be working it out and Sango's eyes began to wander. Melly had draped a celtic patterned scarf over the window and it served as a pretty curtain. I wonder where she got that, Sango mused.

Movement caught her eye and she looked at the open door. One of the male college students strolled by. His brown hair was wet and clung to his head. There were water droplets on his shoulders and neck from the water on his hair. One large hand held two edges of a white towel together at his hip. He moved and Sango saw a tantalizing view of naked thigh.

Then he was out of sight.

She could hear a sound of feet going down the hallway and thought idly, flip-flops. She also heard snickering.

Sango turned her head to see Kagome laughing at her. "What?" the girl asked innocently. "Did something happen?"

She stuck out her tongue at the younger girl. "Is that a daily occurrence?"

"Gee, I hope so. At least I shower every day."

Sango groaned. "No. Do you see a moderately nice looking male walk by your door wearing nothing but a towel every day?"

"No," Kagome answered. Sango breathed a sigh of relief. "He wears flip-flops, too." Sango bopped Kagome on the head with her math book and she giggled. "Math formulas gone out of your head?" she asked.

Sango looked toward the door. "I would be camped out every morning," she said wistfully. "Now that is one aspect of dorm life I could get used to."

Kagome laughed and closed her book. "Check this problem for me and we'll go to breakfast. I have a feeling you're not going to be able to talk about anything but-"

The same guy walked by again, this time in boxer shorts, muttering about leaving his shower things. Sango's jaw dropped and she forgot all about Kagome's math problem.
