The First Meeting
It was the only word his could think of when he saw her. Were there enough words in the world to describe how beautiful she was? No, he didn't think so. He continued to stare at her from across the room. He knew if she turned her head she'd probably be totally creeped out by the fact that he was blatantly ogling her, but he couldn't help it. He hadn't even seen her face, yet he was completely entranced by her.
He was lost in the shine of her hair, in the sway of her hips. His mouth watered at her curves and when he heard her voice, he'd thought he'd heard angels sing.
He had to have her.
"Hello! Earth to Inuyasha! Anybody in there?" Momentarily the young man's eyes left the beauty before him as he turned to glare at his best friend.
"Dude, you've been staring at her for ten minutes. Go talk to her." Inuyasha turned his attention back to the raven haired woman, who patiently waited at the counter for her order. The mere thought of speaking to her sent his heart racing and made his palms begin to sweat.
"I...can't." He said pathetically. He'd never been nervous or scared to talk to a girl before. Inuyasha never really had charm, but hey, when you looked like him did you really need it? Girls went gaga over his long ebony locks and deep violet eyes. He looked once more in her direction only to see her give the cashier a smile and begin to walk away with her coffee. She inched closer to the door and he quickly began to panic.
She was leaving and he hadn't even gotten her name! If he didn't say something before she walked out the door, he'd probably never see her again!
"Excuse me miss! Miss! Yes, you! Could you come over here for a second?" Inuyasha watched in horror as Miroku yelled across the cafe to get the girl's attention. She was coming this way and he had no idea what to do!
"Miroku you idiot! Why did you do that?" He whispered harshly.
"Because if I hadn't you would have let her walk outta here without saying so much as two words to her. You should be thanking me right about now."
"But I don't even-"
"Uh, do I know you or something?" She was standing at their table, looking curiously at the both of them. Inuyasha looked up at her face and was immediately taken in by her chocolate eyes. She was even prettier up close and he could feel himself starting to stare again.
"No you don't know us, but my friend and I here would like to change that. I'm Miroku Ito." Holding out his hand, she took it cautiously giving it a small shake.
"Kagome Higurashi." She looked to the other boy and couldn't help but notice how handsome he was. Though his staring was starting to weird her out. Suddenly he yelped and glared at his friend, for the not-so-subtle kick he'd received from under the table.
"Don't be rude Inuyasha, introduce yourself." Miroku insisted.
"Keh, why should I? You're the one who invited her over here, and I don't particularly care who she is." He said courtly. He heard her incredulous gasp and instantly wanted to smack himself. That was not what he wanted to say. He was supposed to be wooing her not pissing her off!
"Oh is that so? You seemed curious enough when you were staring at me a few minutes ago!" Kagome said angrily. Who did this jerk think he was?
"I was not staring!" Inuyasha tossed back, a hot blush staining his cheek. Who did this chick think she was to call him out like that?!
"Yes you were!"
"You are such a child! I'm not going to keep arguing with you, Inu-ya-sha, have a nice day. It was nice meeting you Miroku." Giving Inuyasha once last glare she turned quickly on her heels and stomped off towards the door, leaving the entire cafe staring after her and the boy she'd just been arguing with.
Letting his head fall to the table Inuyasha inwardly groaned. Well he'd royally screwed that up. If he had stuck his foot any farther into his mouth, he would've been shitting sneaker for weeks.
Miroku could only shake his head at his friend in disappointment. Patting him on the shoulder, Miroku repeated a phrase he'd said many times during their lifelong friendship.
"Inuyasha, you're an idiot."
