‘ INUYASHA!!!’, Kagome screamed at the top of her voice.
But being that he had demon hearing and that he was asleep and had not expected it, Kagome’s scream sounded like an atomic bomb going off right in front of him. It was deafening.
Inuyasha jumped straight up at the sound of her voice, his head smashing into the window sill above from where he was leaning.
‘ Arhh’, he screamed back, emitting a vast range of colorful words as his hand found his head, trying to ease the pain.
‘ Fuck Kagome! What was that for!’, he yelled at her.
‘ You- Stupid- Cheating- Hypocrite!’, she yelled back at him, his encounter with Kikyo still fresh in her mind
‘SIT!!!’, she screamed, ‘SIT, SIT, SIT!’. Her last word piercing Inuyasha’s heart with fury and sadness, he had barely time to register what was being said before she stalked out of her room, slamming the door on her way out, her cheeks red with fury.
*WHAM, WHAM, WHAM, WHAM*
Inuyasha felt the magical pull of the beads around his neck, and his face found the timber floor of Kagome’s room, time and time again.
Inuyasha. Timber. Inuyasha. Timber. Inuyasha. Timber. Inuyasha. Timber.
After a few minutes of conversation with his new friend Timber, Inuyasha peeled himself up off of the hard floor. Glancing around the room and then out into the hallway, Inuyasha was totally oblivious to what was wrong with his Kagome, his hand still rubbing his throbbing head, he glanced at the window contemplating whether or not to leave..
What on earth was he doing here!, she thought to herself as she slammed the bedroom door and stormed down the stairs, furious with the thought that he now he had finished ‘playing’ with Kikyo that now he could come running back to her.
She made her way through the kitchen and out the front door, hot tears swallowed her eyes as images of Kikyo and Inuyasha filled her mind, tainted with the thought that he could never love her.
Kagome wrapped her arms around her body, suddenly painfully aware that she was in nothing more than a small silk night gown, as a gust of cold morning air hit her, sending shivers down her spine. She looked around quickly, hoping that everyone was still sleeping as the sun shone over her small body. She looked down the street, to Yuki’s house, with a sudden thought that she wished to see her friend again, Kagome started running to her destination, trying to get away from prying eyes that may be peering out of windows.
The cold air followed her with more force as she made her way down the street, in little to no time at all Kagome was standing in front of Yuki’s door. Hoping that someone was awake, she rattled her knuckles on the glass door. Standing in front of the frosted glass, Kagome shivered as another gust of wind hit her hard, she wished that someone would hurry up and answer the door. She was just about to raise her hand and knock again when she heard a distant voice, which was muffled by the door calling out that they were coming. A moment later the frosted glass was flung open to reveal a drowsy looking Yuki. Both girls gasped and wrapped each other in a warm embracing hug. Warm tears fell onto Yuki’s shoulder as Kagome pulled back, weakly smiling at her friends confused expression.
‘ Kagome, wha- what’s the matter?’, she asked, latching onto the girls shoulders, looking deep into her eyes. Kagome melted into another tight hug before stiffly gasping out a small ‘him’.
‘ oh Kagome, what’s happened’, Yuki said, realizing that she meant Inuyasha.
When Kagome didn’t answer, Yuki drew her friend closer and inside, leading her up into her room, letting her lay on her bed as she sat by the floor, with a motherly look on her face.
Yuki looked into her friends face, her cheeks pink, her eyes red and puffy with tear stains running down to her chin. Kagome looked back at Yuki, she missed Sango she thought, but she wasn’t ready to go back to the feudal era just yet.
‘ its him’, Kagome muttered under her breath, ‘ its him and that stupid bitch. The one who wanted to turn him into a human!, gods I love him just the way he is, and yet he can never see how much I truly love him. He always runs off with HER!’, she said breaking into sobs, covering her face with her hands.
Yuki shuffled closer to her friend, placing a protective arm over her shoulders as her friend shivered under she touch.
Inuyasha quickly dismissed the thought of returning to the feudal without his Kagome.
Wait. his Kagome, when did she become his, he thought. Just because of the moment at the hot spring…
Inuyasha pulled himself out of his day dreams. What was her problem, he thought coming back to reality. She was fine when he left her that night, 500 years in the past, what happened? What changed?
He pulled himself up off of the bed and walked into the hallway, following the strong sent of her tears. Gods how his heart broke every single time she cried, and now she was furious with him and he had no clue as to why. Inuyasha descended the stairs and out into the kitchen, following her sent out the front door.
The harsh morning sun blinded the half demon as he attempted to shield himself from the hot rays of light. He growled deep in his throat as he caught sight of a man standing out on his veranda in nothing more than a pair of shorts that looked to be five sizes to small, his stomach hanging low as he winked at the hanyou. Inuyasha let out a louder growl this time as he opened his mouth to show the man how wide his vocabulary was, when he mentally thought of Kagome’s hand slapping him upside the head the last time he swore in public. So he opted for showing the man his finger before turning and following Kagome’s scent down the street.
Inuyasha was about to continue down the street when her scent led him to a small house with a glass door. He remembered this house he thought, this is where one of Kagome’s school friends lives. He didn’t want to go barging in on Kagome and her friend, especially now that Kagome was angry with him and he still didn’t know why.
Inuyasha stealthily made his way across the front of the house and out the back, following the side of the building he climbed up on top of a concrete car port that was and extended part of the house. The roof of the car port was slanted and was slightly lower than the house, coming to a halt right under a roof, Inuyasha stopped and crouched down, pressing his ear against the window that stood ajar.
Inuyasha had to restrain himself when he heard Kagome sobbing. He quickly stole a glance through the window, seeing Kagome sitting on a bed, her knee’s pulled up into her chest and her head hanging in her hands as tears made their way down her cheeks, his heart breaking time and time again as her friend reached out to comfort her. Oh how he wished that he could be the one to comfort her, and for her to tell him what was wrong. But no, Yuki was there to comfort her.
Inuyasha pushed his ear back against the glass, his heart heaving as he heard her muffled, broken words.
‘ It’s him’, he heard Kagome sob. His heart was torn apart at the realization that she had seen him with Kikyo.
Fuck! he mentally cursed himself, FUCK! FUCK! YOU FUCKING IDIOT INUYASHA!!! No wander Kagome was angry at him.
‘ Its him and that stupid bitch. The one who wanted to turn him into a human!, gods I love him just the way he is, and yet he can never see how much I truly love him. He always runs off with HER!’, He heard her saying. His heart breaking at each word, the pain he felt seeping throughout his veins, causing his whole body to shake in self hatred.
She loves me, he thought.
Just as much as I love her… I’m such a fool.. A fool in love…
