Sun-kissed orbs scanned the cafeteria room slowly, smiling when his orbs caught Kagome's but sighed softly when she shifted them, seeing how her body instantly went rigid.
He cut his eyes in the direction of the female who stood on his left, watching as she brushed her hair out of her face with an amused expression on her visage. He ignored her.
He grinned when she started fiddling with her hands, avoiding looking in front of her at all cost. She was just too cute and delicate – how could he have not spoken to her before?
Kagome felt the heat rushing to her face from the silent scrutiny Inuyasha was giving her. She bit her lips to stop from grinning while she roamed the room on the far end – waiting for Sango to hurry back from her destination.
She jumped suddenly when her phone started vibrating on her, answering it quickly without checking to see who it was.
"Have you stopped talking to me?"
She furrowed her brows, before asking meekly who it was.
"I'm right in front of you…"
Kagome sneaked a glance in front of her, seeing Inuyasha on his cell.
"Kagome…" He sighed, holding her orbs prison with his. "The things my friends said to you…It's not true, I would never toy with you."
He watched as her eyes lowered briefly as she rubbed the back of her neck with a hand. "I'm…I don't know what to think." She whispered into the phone. "I realize I don't really know who you are."
"That's why we should go out and get to know each other." He rushed out. "I hate that my friends were such dicks, but please, just trust me when I say I would never think to treat you that way."
"I…I don't…" She bit her lips, trying to keep her voice steady as she remembered what his friends said.
"Kagome… Would you trust me just this once to prove myself?" He spoke with determination, watching her in the eyes so she could read his honesty from the intense look. "Would you…?"
She searched his orbs silently, all the while nibbling on her bottom lip. She wanted to believe, wanted to listen to her friend and let go for once. She wanted to trust him…
"Okay Inuyasha." She breathed.
They both stared at each other as a small smile crept upon their lips.
