Summary: There was no way she could ever have a conversation with him. (This is gonna run as a mini series)
His beauty was beyond anything she'd seen in her entire sixteen years of life. Every time he brushed passed her in the halls it was like a jolt of pleasurable electricity had shot through her very core.
"He's just too dreamy Sango!" Kagome gushed that morning, hugging her school books close to her chest. "You know I had a dream again last night?" She whispered, her plump cheeks glowing red ever so brightly as she batted her eyelashes cutely.
Sango grinned widely with a roll of her eyes, nudging her friend slightly as they walked idly to their lockers. "Then why don't you talk to him? Try to get to know him!"
Kagome's mouth open in a cute 'O' as she looked horrifically at her best friend. "I can't Sango!" She breathed, eyeing the handsome junior who walked in front of them.
It was like the very air stood still in his presence. She felt suffocated just being near him, walking in the same spot he once graced his presence with. Her blue doe eyes gazed sweetly at his form, almost losing herself in a daze.
Sango giggled softly when she looked at her friend, wondering why the girl couldn't muster up the courage to speak to the one guy she's interested in. When Sango saw that Inuyasha had stopped walking, while Kagome gushed animatedly about her dream without watching where she was going, she accidentally tripped her friend who stumbled forward.
"I'm so so… so sor –…" Kagome's apology hitched in her throat when she realized who she'd bumped into, gulping when he gave her a wide smile.
"Are you alright?" Inuyasha brushed his bangs out of his eyes before easing down to take up her books.
"Um…" She stood rooted to her spot, gasping for air as she felt the sweat forming in her palms. "I…." Looking around frantically for her friend to save her, she realized that Sango had her back turned to her, already talking to someone else.
"Here you go." He extended the books to her, chuckling softly when she pulled it out of his hands without even looking him in the eyes.
"Tha…Thanks." She squeaked out, pushing the books up to hide her face as her blush intensified.
"You're kinda cute." He chuckled louder when she confirmed his sentence with a small 'eep' in embarrassment before brushing past him with her head bowed low.
