Word Count: 400
Summary: Inuyasha chances his friendship by confessing to her.
Kagome rolled her eyes, popping a bubblegum while gazing longingly at the trees that flew past them. 'I wish I were those tress.' She thought, glancing over at her clueless best friend of five years. All the advances she ever made towards him always left her feeling rejected because 'he didn't want to mess up their friendship.'
"Ugh – Inuyasha I told you I don't feel like going anywhere." She shrunk down in her seat, glaring off into the distance.
She loved how he always thought about ways to make her feel the best – never wanting her to be alone or sad for too long. Didn't he know it was easier to change that rather than just rushing around the damn place and dragging her with him?
"Stop being so prissy and slap on a grin!" He ordered, with kind eyes.
"I swear Inu –…"
Her words fell short when she saw how vacant the beach was and wondered why he told her there would be a party!
"Get out – I got something to show you." He grabbed her by the hand, dragging her over to the driver's seat, helping her exit through the same door he came out of. "You'll enjoy it."
"But no one's here!" She exclaimed.
"Well, weren't you the one who wanted to be alone?" Flashing her that smile once more, he squeezed her hand reassuringly before releasing it.
Kagome gazed around the beach, wondering why not even one person was present. She took some steps that would take her down to the beach, her feet instantly sinking into the sand.
"Hey, Inu!" She screamed, now rushing towards something a little distance from the steps. "I think I see…"
She fell quiet to read what was made from the sand. Her lips opened slowly as she read the design in the sand.
It didn't take long since all it said was 'I heart you', with multiple roses, all made from the sand.
"What's the meaning of this?" She murmured.
"You like?" He breathed, making her jump at his proximity.
"It's beautiful! I wonder who did this…"
"Take a good guess."
Kagome looked behind her to watch Inuyasha in his unsure orbs before smiling warmly at him. Jumping quickly in his arms, she inhaled his scent deeply.
"I'll give you time…"
Her only response was a quick nod before tightening her hold on him.
'I love you too!'
