A/N: Eighth installment, following 'Moonlight'
Inuyasha couldn't help the elated feeling that coursed through him from finally being with this gem who was fidgeting so cutely next to him. He could vividly remember the first time he laid eyes on her when she stepped onto the school's premises as a freshman… He couldn't take his eyes off of her.
Though as easy as it was for him to confront girls, he just never could wrap his head around why he couldn't face her without a little nudge from the pervert's friend, who coincidentally was Kagome's friend as well.

"Whereas my dream is to find that sparkling light that draws me to that special beauty who will accept it all…"
They both blushed deeply, but surprisingly Kagome kept her gaze locked with Inuyasha's as if she was in some sort of trance.
"I hope your dream comes true…" She whispered ghostly.
"Once that light shines brightly for me to find it, then my dream with definitely come true… Wouldn't you say the same thing?"
She shrugged slowly as her dimples deepened as she smiled
