Chapter 1: Invitation
Kagome's mother, Sakura, woke up at the sound of the phone ringing. She rubbed her eyes with the back of her hand, grumbling. She flipped off the covers, and dressed in her sleeping gear, went down the stairs to get the phone. She looked at the number written across the answering machine screen. She didn't recognize the number, but yet it still seemed quite familiar, as if she' had seen it before. 'Who could this be…' was the only thought that crossed her mind before she answered the phone. Picking up the phone, she groggily answered. "Hello?" On the other side of the phone was a man's voice. "Sakura-san, is it you?" Sakura quickly recognized the voice as Kagome's father's friend – Inutashio's voice. Her eye's lit up at the sound of his voice, grateful to hear from him again.
"Inutashio-san! We haven't seen each other for quite some time! How are you?"
"I am managing quite well, Sakura-san. I also must ask, how are you, Sakura-san?" from the tone of his voice, she could tell that Inutashio was smiling, and so was she. They haven't seen each other for five years. 'The sons of his might as well have grown up…' Her thoughts were cut off by the sound of Inutashio's voice. "So how is the shrine managing, Sakura-san?" Sakura ran a hand through her hair and answered. "Quite well, Inutashio-san. Even though after Kagome's father's death…" her voice trailed off. Memories of the car crash flooded her mind. It seemed like it was yesterday that Kagome's father had died… even though it was 6 years ago… Silence came with both of them, both trapped in their own thoughts. Inutashio was first to break the silence. "Speaking of Kagome, how old is she now?" Sakura instantly relaxed at the comforting tone of Inutashio's, letting out a breath she didn't know she was holding. "She is 17 now."
"Ahhh… I see. Why not she visit us?" asked Inutashio from the other end of the line. "She can come to Hawaii with us for the summer!"
"Erm… Are you sure, Inutashio-san? Kagome can be a hand full when it comes to traveling." Sakura was grateful of the invitation from Inutashio, but Kagome was really a hand full when it came to traveling. Girls her age were all either busy finding the perfect outfit to wear, or trying on all that nail polish and makeup. At this point, Sakura was not so sure about letting Kagome go, because in this case, her suitcase would probably weigh a ton. She slipped back to reality when Inutashio started again talking on, and this time he seemed like he was bouncing on the other end of the line. "Of course, Sakura-san! I'm sure! It will be great for her to come! I shall send you the tickets for the airplane today." He didn't seem to notice that he was talking faster by the minute. "The plane flight is on Wednesday. And, by the way, sorry for waking you up at 5:00 in the morning. It should be 5:00 in Japan, right?" Sakura glanced at the clock. Just as Inutashio said, it was 5:00 in the morning. "Okay then, Sakura-san! I will wait for the arrival of Kagome on Thursday. Goodbye, Sakura-san! See you soon!" With that said, Inutashio hung up the phone, leaving a stunned Sakura holding onto the phone, while the phone beeped.
Kagome lay on her bed, still in deep sleep until she heard her alarm go off. 'Great…' she thought, punching the On/Off button on the alarm clock angrily. 'It's the first day of summer and my alarm's ringing at 7:30! Can anything worst happen?' she climbed out of bed, yawning and grumbling at the same time. She headed toward the bathroom, tripping over her furry slippers on the way. Kagome started angrily mumbling under her breath about a certain furry slipper and her bad luck. After taking a bath, brushing her teeth, and a light comb of her black hair, she picked out her cloth, a white T-shirt with the words 'Puppy' written on it and a pair of demin shorts, and headed downstairs towards the kitchen.
The kitchen smelled of pancakes, and Kagome was sure that she heard her mom making them. She peered into the kitchen and greeted her mother with a warm smile, even though she briefly felt a shiver come down her spine, but she ignored it. "'Mourning, Mom."
"Good mourning, Kagome." Sakura smiled back. Kagome sat down in a chair and looked around. Oddly, she and her mom were the only one's up. She turned her attention back to her mother when she put a pile of pancakes onto a plate, and handed it to her. She greedily looked at the pancakes, drool practically dribbling down her chin. Her mother's pancakes were the best, and she had yet tasted any other pancake better then her mothers. To Kagome, it looked as if the pancakes were shouting "Eat me! Eat me!" She started stuffing the pancakes into her mouth and chewing at the same time. Sakura gazed at her daughter for a few moments, looking at the black bangs and hair that shined a brilliant sapphire blue when shown in the light, and the dark brown eyes of hers. He lips glowed a bright pink in the morning sunlight. She and Kagome looked so alike, and everyone she met agreed. She looked at Kagome a bit longer, smiled in contentment, before starting on her own pancakes.
Sakura patiently waited for Kagome to finish. When Kagome finally did, which Sakura was silently grateful of, Kagome let out a small sigh of satisfaction, wiped her mouth with a tissue, and laid back to enjoy the sunlight that caressed her cheek, flowing through the open window.
Sakura started to talk. "Kagome," Kagome turned to look at her mother, "Yes, Mom?" Dread flooded Kagome as Sakura began to speak. 'This is not good…' Sakura smiled before continuing. "Your father's old friend called today." Kagome smiled from ear to ear and jumped up from her chair, almost knocking the bottle of salt over. She had never heard that her father had a friend called Inutashio. Most of all, she was relieved that her mom wasn't going to ask why she got a D on her Math test. "What did he say, Mom?" Her mother smiled and sighed at the same time, mentally praying that Kagome won't scream at the decision Inutashio made for her. "He asked you to accompany him and his two sons to Hawaii for the summer." Kagome stopped smiling, paled, and screamed. "WHAT!" Her mother grimaced at the sound. 'Too late…' Just then, her brother and grandfather came stumbling down the stairs towards Sakura and Kagome. "Where is the youkai, Kagome?" her grandfather looked around the house with narrow eyes, wards in hand, ready to throw them at any threat in the house. But finding that there were none, he stuffed the wards into his pajama pockets. Kagome ignored him, instead concentrated on her mother. Confusion was clearly written on her pale face, which was now slowly restoring its natural color.
"You mean…?" Kagome's mother nodded. "You will be staying at Inutashio's mansion in Hawaii for the summer." Her mother smiled as if it was nothing, the most normal day in her life. "Why didn't you ask me?" Kagome wailed, and she was on the verge of tears. "Cool!" Souta cried, eyes widening at the news of his sister going to Hawaii. Kagome glared at him, making him back up a few steps and hiding behind their grandfather, who rolled his eyes. "Please, Kagome. At least visit them for this summer. Nothing bad could happen." Sakura's smile reassured it, even though Kagome knew that it wasn't true that exactly nothing bad could happen. Kagome sighed, than pouted. "Fine, I'll go." She scowled as if it was the worst day in her life, which she thought was. Sakura smiled happily at her daughter's response. "Great! Here are the tickets to Hawaii." Sakura picked up a piece of paper with the words " Hawaii" written on it. True to Inutashio's word, the ticket arrived before Wednesday, but only to arrive two hours later after Inutashio's call to Sakura.
Kagome stomped back up stairs to her room, tickets in hand, while digging through the storage room for her suitcase on the way. Sakura smiled as she watched Kagome digging through her pile of stuff, wondering about Kagome's trip to Hawaii. 'I wonder what you have in store, Inutashio…'
"Mom! This is way too heavy!" cried Kagome, dragging her suitcase up the elevator of the airport. "I told you not to pack so many things! The shower gel was a waste of space!" Sakura was dragging the suitcase along with her daughter. Finally, they managed to pull the suitcase up the elevator. Kagome used the back of her hand to wipe the sweat off her brow, which was accumulating and threatening to fall. Kagome thought for a moment, before returning her attention back to her mother. "Mom, by the way, how do I know which one's Inutashio-san?" Kagome's brow knitted together in confusion, and glanced at her mother. Her mother froze, than seemed to think. Then her mouth formed a 'o' shape. She smiled mischievously. She turned to Kagome, smiling. "Just look for the 3 people that attract the most attention in the airport. You'll see them." Kagome cocked an eyebrow at her mother's remark. Her mother only smiled back. 'Weird…' was what she could only think of. She was about to ask about what she meant when they arrived at the door leading to the airplane. "Good luck, Kagome." Her mother smiled and waved as Kagome was pushed into the airplane by the airplane workers. "Mom! You didn't answer—"But before she could finish her sentence, she was already strapped into her seat on the plane, as the plane took off towards Hawaii.
After 'suffocating' for 15 hours straight next to a snoring man, she finally arrived at the Hawaii Airport. Relieved as she was, she looked into the airport of Hawaii. "Hmm…" She couldn't seem to concentrate, and she believed that no one could. She was in an airport of who knows where and alone in middle of a crowd of people. She scowled at the fact that her Mom made her come on this trip. 'I could have declined… though I didn't. I guess I just wanted to see what kind of person Inutashio-san is. Also, I've waited so long to come to Hawaii!' At that thought, she grinned, a lovely smile gracing her features, and looked around. She wore a pair of sunglasses, which were balanced on the top of her head. 'Mom said to look for the 3 people that attract most attention…' she scanned the area for what she called the most attracting 3 people when she found what she seemed to be looking for. Her mouth almost fell open at the sight in front of her. Her eyes widened. "Talk about attracting attention…" she dragged her suitcase toward the way all the people were looking at – towards the three people standing in middle of the airport. And yes, they were the most attention-attracting people in the whole airport.
'I guess Mom was right after all.'
