"I don't believe you!" Kagome giggled when Inuyasha pouted at her. "Did you cook all this by yourself?" She hand her hands over her mouth as she ate the sushi that Inuyasha had fed her. "It's delicious!" She gushed.
"Thank you." He grinned before taking up an egg roll with the chopstick and popping it in his mouth. "…All by myself!"
He looked at Kagome as she sighed loudly with her eyes closed as she chewed her food slowly. A smile kissed his lips as he watched her silently; loving the expression she was giving off.
"I don't believe –…" Her paused when she opened her eyes to see Inuyasha watching her. "What…? Is something on my face?" She groaned in embarrassment.
"No. Can't I just watch you?"
"Oh… um…" She shuffled her feet idly. "Um, what?"
Inuyasha chuckled. "I don't think I was ever forward with you, but I want to tell you…" He waited until she looked him in the eyes, blushing as she continued chewing her food with a slight uncertainty. "Well…"
Kagome had the chopsticks against her lips as she waited for Inuyasha to continue. But instead of him saying anything, she realized he was getting closer to her and her eyes started to bludge out slowly.
"I really…." He took her hand from her face, easing closer to press his lips against hers for the first time ever.
Instead, Kagome shrunk back with a loud gasp in shock.
"I'm sorry!" Inuyasha rushed out. "I … That was too bold!" He cursed loudly, which only made her jump. "Shit… I can't do anything right!"
"No… It's not that!" She rushed out, trying to reassure him. "I just…I mean you see… I never actually… I…. I never kissed a guy before." She blushed in mortification as she waited for understanding to dawn on Inuyasha.
When he realized what she'd just said, he couldn't help laughing.
"It's not funny!"
"I know, it's just that… Man…" He sighed loudly. "You're just so cute and different; I really like that about you!" He continued laughing, his hold still on her hand.
He grinned and took up and egg roll, placing it to her lips. "I like you Kagome."
She paused with her mouth open and the egg roll kissing her bottom lips.
"I really do like you," He repeated. "Can I… Can I be your boyfriend?"
