Summer in the U.S.
Kagome goes on vacation to Florida with her mom and brother. They go to
this big resort place. Her mom and brother can speak English but Kagome
Inuyasha has to follow his brother around on business trips and they have
to go to Florida and stay at a hotel. While Sesshoumaru can speak English,
The two of them meet and become friends quick, they can't really talk to
anyone else. But why does Inuyasha seem to be hiding something from Kagome?
He never takes off his hat and doesn't smile very often and when he does he
frantically tries to stop laughing, like he doesn't want anyone to see
something in his mouth.
Author's pov (point of view)
Kagome Higurashi sat in the back seat of a rented car listening to
her brother complain about how Americans screwed up their language by using
slang so often. He had gone into a store to use the bathroom and asked in
his newly learned language, English. The man at the counter laughed and
said something about how nice he was. He came out and people talked to him
using strange words like 'Yo' and 'wassup'. After figuring this all out he
decided he didn't like this language after all, for crying out loud, the
word see could mean see, c, or sea! That could get confusing.
Kagome didn't know what the people had said even if they had said it
in perfect grammar. Ms. Higurashi has known English for many years and even
knows most of the slang terms. Kagome on the other hand hadn't wanted to
learn the language when she was younger, she regretted that now. Souta and
her mother had to translate for her when someone spoke to her, Kagome found
this extremely embarrassing.
Trying to ignore her brother's voice she rolled down the window and
rested her head on the sill letting the wind blow through her long raven
black hair. The family was headed for a summer resort on the east coast of
a state called 'Florida.' (I live on the east coast of Florida! Yay!) They
had flown in to a city called Orlando and rented the car from the airport.
'This is going to be the worst summer of my entire life!' kagome frowned as
they pulled up to the huge building. She was mad because not only could she
not speak the language, she couldn't read any signs.
Funny looking men wearing strange outfits took the keys to the car to
park it and then took their bas up too their room. Souta had to tell her
what they were doing since she couldn't understand them when they asked to
take her bags.
'Wow.' Kagome mouthed the word as she looked up at the large
structure before her eyes. It seemed like it could reach the sky. She
turned in circles only to make herself dizzy and stumble backwards a little
bit. She caught herself just in time because her mother yelled at her to
hurry up and follow.
"Inuyasha! Wake up you lazy bum." Sesshoumaru shook his brother awake
as the small private jet started to come to a halt I the small private
"Ugh. Are we there yet?" he asked shaking his head to wake up his
"Yes. Come on, get your things, we're already late."
"You mean you're late. I'm not the guy here on some stupid business
meeting. Why'd you have to bring me again?"
"Because little brother, I am your legal guardian and I didn't feel
stupid enough that day to decide on letting you stay alone for a whole
month." Sesshoumaru handed his bags to a chauffeur as he stepped of the
little ladder coming out the side of the jet. Inuyasha just through his
things in the trunk and hopped in the limo grumbling about things being to
"Sesshoumaru?" *ring* *ring* Sesshoumaru picked up the phone putting
a finger in the air to silence his younger brother. Their parents had died
long ago, murdered. Now Inuyasha lived with his brother, who was also his
guardian until Inuyasha could 'fend for himself.'
Trying to ignore his brother bargaining with his broker he took off
the hat he was wearing and rolled down the window and stuck his head out.
Enjoying the breeze in his face he watched as some signs flew by, he
couldn't read then though. Inuyasha never learned English. Sesshoumaru
spoke it fluently though and had to translate for Inuyasha all the time.
'This is going to be so boring.' He thought about how all of his past
summers have been, following his older brother around on his worldwide
Every year it was the same, they would go to some far away country, away
from his beloved Japan, and his brother would basically ignore him the
entire time. They always went to some fancy high class resort or something
like that. Inuyasha and his brother had been left with the family fortune,
but Inuyasha never really bought anything, unlike his brother. But
Sesshoumaru didn't really need the family fortune, he had made more than
enough money from his own business.
Finally they arrived and passed by a bunch of cars before stopping and had
their luggage taken up their rooms. Inuyasha was walking around when he saw
a young girl about his age, maybe a little younger staring up at the
building. Not knowing what she was so amazed by he laughed as she nearly
fell over from spinning. He caught a good glimpse of her face and could
tell she was oriental, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, but he didn't really care
because he couldn't speak to her since she probably only spoke English. He
watched her run to her family and he turned on his heel and went back to
find his brother arguing in another language, not English, so it had to be
Sighing, Inuyasha followed far behind the bellman as he led them to their
When Inuyasha stepped through the doors he realized this was one of
the best hotels he'd ever stayed in, and he'd stayed in a lot of hotels.
"Inuyasha! Quit gawking and hurry up!" Sesshoumaru called from up
"Yeah, yeah I'm coming." People standing around looked over to the
men who were yelling in an unknown language. Inuyasha ignored them and kept
up with his brother, who was talking on his cell phone in what seemed to be
Finally getting to their room he plopped down on the bed and fell
asleep, it was probably midnight at home and he had major jet lag.
Sesshoumaru was in the room across the hall and Inuyasha's sensitive ears
could still hear him mumbling on the phone.
Kagome stayed close to her mother and looked up to see the ceiling,
there was none! Not that she could see at least. Stairs winded round and
round going many floors into the sky.
"And will you want your own room or to stay with your family?" The
man in the funny costume asked. Kagome stared at him for a second before
her mother told him something in English and he nodded.
"Kagome, he wants to know if you want your own room dear." Her mother
"Oh! Yes definitely!" She jumped a little at the thought of getting
her own room, even if it was attached to her mother and brother's by a
Her mother nodded to the man and he gave her a small card that
unlocked the door. She walked into the room in silence sure the man would
understand her not thanking him, but she did bow and he must have
understood because he bowed back.
She felt like it was the middle of the night! The sun was shining
through her window though, telling her it was only mid afternoon. She
sighed as she laid on her bed and fell asleep telling herself it was only a
little jet lag.
Inuyasha woke with a start because his brother was banging on his
door to get up and meet him down in the dining room.
"ALRIGHT! Sheesh! Stupid brother." He found a clean pair of pants and
a decent enough shirt. Going into the bathroom he was still mumbling curses
at Sesshoumaru for waking him up. He looked at the clock for the time but
it was in strange symbols he couldn't recognize. Instead he looked out the
window for the sun, it was about 6:00pm and the sun was almost gone.
Sorry this chapter is so short. I think I have a good thing started here,
it was just an idea I had. I was actually writing a different Inuyasha
story idea at the time and summer and resorts in America came to my mind.
Then I realized that Inuyasha and Kagome don't speak English, and poof!
There it was, a great idea! Yay!
Please review and tell me what you think! Also- I have another really
awesome Inuyasha story, read that!
