The Second Encounter
Inuyasha sat at the bar nursing a jack and coke as he watched Miroku dance between two scantaly clad women. He hated clubs, and for the life of him he couldn't remember how he'd let Miroku drag him here. There were always too many people, drunk, sweaty, and stumbling about. The music was always too loud for him, and did he mention he really hated all the people?
"Come on Inuyasha! I didn't bring you here to sit on your ass and get drunk. We could've done that at home." Miroku yelled over the music.
"Then why didn't we?" Inuyasha replied as he chugged the last of his drink and ordered another. Looking at his watch Inuyasha sighed at the time, realizing that he had to take a criminal justice exam, that he hadn't studied for, in 5 hours.
"That's why!" Following his friend's gaze Inuyasha saw two good looking females sitting at the opposite end of the bar. One had long chestnut hair pulled into a high ponytail. Her dress was black and tight fitting accentuating her soft curves, but the girl next to her was who caught Inuyasha's attention. Her dark midnight hair fell against her back in thick waves, the red halter dress she wore setting his blood on fire. He continued to stare at her, she looked oddly familiar to him.
"Sango! Sango over here!" He heard Miroku scream. He saw the brown haired girl turn towards them and smile as she tapped her friend to her attention. The two girls made their way over and Inuyasha suddenly remembered where he'd seen the raven haired chick before.
"Hey your that Kagome girl." He said before he could catch himself. She sized him up a look of shock and annoyance crossing her face.
"Oh yeah I remember you. You're the jerk from the cafe." She said huffing and turning away from him.
"Do you two know each other?" Sango said to Kagome, watching their interaction with mild interest.
"Ah my dear, I believe our friends got off on the wrong foot when they first met. How about we go dance and let them get reacquainted?" Kagome protested as her friend let herself be dragged away by Miroku. The last thing she wanted was to be alone with this asshole.
"I'm really not a jerk you know." Inuyasha said suddenly. Her disbelieving look made him want to snap at her, but he rethought that idea. Miroku was right when he'd said they'd gotten off on the wrong foot. "Okay I might be a jerk, but it's not intentional. I just have a bad habit of always saying the wrong things."
She stared at him warily before giving him a shy smile. "Well if that's your way of apologizing I guess I accept. How about we start over?" Turning to face him she stuck her hand out and Inuyasha took it confused on what she was doing.
"I'm Kagome, it's nice to meet you." She said, a wide smile spreading across her face.
"I'm Inuyasha and the pleasure's all mine." He said smirking back at her.
