"This is it…" Sango whispered, a huge grin stretching her lips apart as she squeezed Kagome's hands tightly.
"I…I'm scared." Kagome inhaled shakily, her body shaking with suppressed excitement. "Um…How do I look? Is this too much – too little?" She babbled, pulling her hands away from Sango as she straightened her clothing.
"Just relax and enjoy the night, besides, I highly doubt jeans and that cute top could be too much or too little." With a roll of her eyes, she suddenly squealed when she heard the door bell ring. "That's him!"
Kagome took a deep shakily breath.
"I hope this date wasn't too sudden for you…" Inuyasha mumbled next to Kagome who sat quietly in his car. "I know it's a school night and all…"
She stayed silent, fiddling idly with her hands while avoiding eye contact with him.
"Are you going to stay silent?"
"I'm just…" Kagome rested her head against the seat with a loud huff. "I don't know what to say."
The tinting of her cheeks made Inuyasha smile softly as the night's breeze caressed them both.
"Well, for starters we can get to know each other better like planned."
"Why did you want to go out with me…?" She whispered suddenly, gazing up at the full moon to distract herself.
"Well for one thing, you're different and I like that about you."
"There was just something about you that always had me curious… Then….I don't know… I just wanted to get to know you but I never really had the guts to confront you."
Kagome almost laughed from the shock that consumed her. "I find that hard to believe coming from you."
He groaned and turned his head from her. "You only know the Inuyasha at school – the one with the reputation."
"You're actually kind of…" She blushed, turning her gaze back to her hands.
"What?" He pressed on, grinning cheekily at her. "Tell me."
"No…!" She pressed her hands to her heated face.
Inuyasha couldn't help the wide grin that crept across his face as he took a hand of hers to hold.
"One thing I do know though…" He started, his eyes sparkling brightly from the moon's light. "I really do like you."
Her breath hitched.
He laced his fingers with hers and then shifting in such a way so that he can have his arm around her.
