"Good morning beautiful."
Kagome jumped in surprise when she felt the breath of the words tickle her ears. Looking behind her she couldn't help the huge grin that plastered across her face. "Hi there Inuyasha!" She hugged her books closer to her frame.
"Hey…" He flashed a dazzling smile before taking her books from her and falling in step next to her. "I had a great time with you." He whispered, looking down at their hands that bumped each other idly as they walked down the crowded halls.
"I…I had a great time too."
"Um…I was just…."
She looked up, waiting for him to stumble out the words with a slight smile. She couldn't believe that the Inuyasha stuttered in her presence! "You were just…?" She pushed.
"Um…well you see, I wanted to know if you were busy during lunch."
"I don't think so… I just have to buy my lunch and, maybe go over a test we're gonna get back today."
The silence stretched on with Inuyasha still looking down at their hands and Kagome gazing around the school idly.
Inuyasha stepped in front of Kagome, halting her when she bumped into him. "Ok, I'm just gonna say this and get it over with." He raked his hands through his hair. "Would you like to eat lunch with me on the roof?"
The bell rang at that moment.
"Sure!" She grinned widely.
"You know what's really odd?"
"What's that?" Inuyasha asked, taking a seat against the wall and patting the space next to him.
"Um…I feel really comfortable around you."
"And that's odd…because?" He smiled warmly at her. "I'm happy that I bring you comfort, as if it's where you belong."
"Where I belong huh?"
"Yeah, you do belong here, with me."
Taking her hand into his, he grinned when she bowed her head.
"I love it when you blush." Cupping her cheek with his free hand, he eased up her face to gaze into her eyes. "I love it even more when I'm the cause of it."
"You're cruel." She grinned when he squeezed her hand.
He placed his arms around her, still keeping a hold on her hand.
"This feels so perfect." She whispered ghostly.
"It is perfect Kagome."
He kissed the top of her head as she snuggled closer in his embrace.
