Not so Different Cousins
Thanks to everyone who reviewed! I really appreciate it!
Disclaimer: WAHHHH : (
"WHAT THE HELL!"
This statement rang through the currently empty street and seemed to hang in the air for minutes. Kagome raised her head to search for the source of the noise and she simply froze.
To any passing people, this was definitely a sight worthy of a few cameras. After Yusuke's statement had caught the attention of his companions, Kuwabara stayed in his dazed state, Yusuke's jaw merely hung wide open, Kurama just stared at the beautiful female with widened emerald eyes and Keiko's face portrayed her surprise as recognition flittered in her eyes.
While they did this, Kagome was still frozen in shock and disbelief at the people across the street. After a few more minutes of gaping from both sides, the lone miko managed to sink out of her stupor enough to have a single thought: It's HIM!
Slowly, and almost in a trance-like state, Kagome made her way across the black tar of the street and onto the sidewalk on the other side. The dazed miko didn't even register her movement until she was about a foot away from the front of the group; also known as Yusuke.
Stay in "Suuichi" form (red head) the whole time so he can talk to Youko
Stay in "Youko" form when not around regular humans, and have him talk to Suuichi in his head
Have a kind of mixed "Kurama" thing where he is in "Suuichi" form only around regular humans, and in "Youko" form all of the rest of the time
Give me some kind of alternative
Also, do you guys want all of this jealousy and fluff 'n stuff in the story? Any pairings you want? I know that KurKag is an absolute MUST; I might have a triangle for a while though…
But, for now I'm having Kurama in "Suuichi" form where he talks to Youko in italicized speech. Also, I know some people have an issue with exaggerated perverseness in Youko, but I'm doing just to make my fic more interesting!
Please review and give me your opinion!
In Kurama's Head
Goooood morning Red, began a mockingly-cheerful baritone voice. So, let's continue with my FAVORITE game: "How many crazed-ugly-psycho-dim-obsessed-bitchy-wannabe-slutty-weak-creepy-all around horrible fan-girls will attack our dear Suuichi today." Well, let's see…so far the record in a mere 24 hours is…well I lost the paper…but IT'S A REEEALLY BIG NUMBER! At this point, Youko was arrogantly putting up his feet in Kurama's head, waiting for some sort of comeback from the redhead. Hearing none, the no-longer smirking kitsune became a bit concerned; this was like a daily ritual, what happened? Hey Red, too tired for a comeback today, eh? Well, that's just too—uuuuuuuuuuhhh...
That's right everyone, our favorite sexy silver kitsune ex-bandit was left speechless and if it weren't for his ego and self-control, he'd be drooling on the floor! Yes, we're still talking about THE YOUKO; the fox known as the "Horniest Demon of Makai;" the holder of the Reikai, Ningenkai, and Makai record of most --ahem-- "releases" and women in his bed in a week; not to mention the fact that he's a TOTAL hottie!
Youko is presently staring in shock at the stunning woman across the street. Her silky ebony hair, flawless skin, deep and innocent chocolate eyes, full lips and oh! Look at that body—perfect figure, flat stomach, long, long legs, luscious curves, full chest and KAMI, that ass. At the moment, several "suggestive" images of her in "unique" positions were running through his mind… (A/N: Need I say more?)
Hearing this nickname, said "Kaggie" broke down in tears. Streams of tears flowed down her face as her whole body shook with emotion. Her chin trembled and every so often a heart-wrenching whimper escaped the confines of her throat. Seeing her in this condition, Yusuke immediately swept her up in a comforting hug. Kagome just sobbed uncontrollably into his shirt while, surprisingly, he worriedly stroked her back. She just kept muttering something that was suspiciously akin to "Yusuke, 'suke-kun."
After a few minutes, Kagome calmed down a bit and stopped crying. Eventually, she wiped off her tears from her face with the back of her hands and pulled back from Yusuke's embrace. Looking him up and down from head to toe, she did the unexpected: she pulled back her right arm and then gave him a good slap in the face. Not too surprisingly, it was much, MUCH worse that Keiko's, most likely because of the fact that Kagome had soooo much practice with a certain perverted monk…
Yusuke was now sprawled across the sidewalk and wincing at the pain while his mind raced. Oh Kami, oh Kami, oh Kami! Damn, damn, DAMN IT ALL TO HELL! What's Kags doing here. More importantly, where'd she get that arm? I've fought Toguro, and thousands of youkai in the past, but nothing can compare to Kaggie's slap!
Keiko just sweat-dropped as if it were a normal occurrence while Kuwabara thought, This beautiful woman is being attacked by that no good Urameshi! (A/N: If I were in an anime, I would be sweat-dropping on the floor right now…I just wrote that and I still can't believe the stupidity…) I'll save her and then she'll say "Oh Kazuma, you're so strong! I LOVE you!" Then I'll say, "Of course I am!" Then, we'll get married and have TONS of kids, and then we'll have lots and LOTS of KITTIES! At these "intelligent" thoughts, Kuwabara squealed and giggled like a little girl.
Of course, this odd sound broke every out of their thoughts and brought them back to reality. Kagome seemed to have just remembered what she wanted to say. She took a step closer to the body on the sidewalk as said body got up and cowered in fear of the miko. Kagome then maneuvered herself so her face was an inch from Yusuke's, and after about a minute of heavy silence she finally burst.
"Yu-suke Ur-a-mesh-i," said person flinched knowing the rage hidden beneath that tone. I'm in deep shit! Last time she said my FULL name a syllable at a time I ended up hanging from the Goshinboku tree...by my foot...in an ugly pink dress with those ruffles...not to mention the fact that I was covered in honey with feathers stuck all over me.
Kagome continued, ignoring the pitiful "I-think-that-you-just-made-me-shit-in-my-pants" look that Yusuke had on his face. "Yu-suke Ur-a-mesh-i," she repeated for added effect, "WHAT THE FUCKING HELL IS YOUR FUCKING PROBLEM! WE THOUGHT YOU WERE FUCKING DEAD FOR THE PAST FOUR GODDAMNED YEARS! BUT IMAGINE MY SHOCK WHEN I SEE YOU ALL 'FINE AND DANDY' WHEN I'M GOING TO SCHOOL! AND NOT ONE LETTER...OR PHONE CALL...(sniff)...not even a quick note..." She began to break down again. "'suke-kun, do you really hate me so much that you made us believe th-that you were de-dead?" Kagome completely cracked as she began sobbing uncontrollably with her arms wrapped around herself. (A/N: Mood swing much? One second she's gonna kill him and the next she's crying...)
The fresh wave of tears was worse than the last and Yusuke couldn't help but feel horrible about it. Repeating his previous actions, he wrapped his arms around the sobbing girl and tried to make her feel better. She responded by grabbing his shirt as she continued to let it all out. Yusuke began to mutter his apologies into her ear. "Kags, I'm really sorry. Gomen. I was really in a coma and everyone thought that I was dead. Gomen."
After a while these statements soothed her until she was completely calm. Before she took a step back Yusuke heard a muffled "I forgive you," and couldn't help but have the corners of his mouth curve upwards.
Now, Kagome finally noticed the people her were now openly staring at her, apparently confused. The two males, she didn't recognize, but the female...that was a different story. The moment that the two females met each other's eyes, let's just say that every living thing within a ten mile radius had to clutch their ears...
After two high-pitched squeals from the girls, they hugged and began talking ninety miles an hour. Before they could really REALLY get started, Yusuke decided to intervene. "Um, now girls I know that you miss each other and everything, but I think that we should explain it to Kur- I mean Suuichi, because he deserves an explanation. Kuwabara, on the other hand, I think is about to have his brain short-circuit and explode."
Before anything else could be said, Kagome remembered something. Turning around slowly, she tried in her calmest voice to ask a question that had been bugging her for a while. "Ano, Yusuke...Exactly WHY didn't you call me to tell me that you're still alive?" Tapping her foot "patiently" she waited for the "oh so important" excuse.
Yusuke began sweating bullets as he frantically wracked his mind for a legitimate excuse. Finding none, he just replied, "You know, the thing about that is that I kinda sorta completely forgot..." Seeing her about to tear up again, he quickly added, "But I really wish that I really did and I'm really sorry."
He shot her an irresistibly innocent expression and it made Kagome melt, even though she wouldn't admit it. Sighing, she replied, "That's ok 'suke-kun." (A/N: Guys, I need help! Would Kags call Yusuke "kun" or something else?)
The extremely relieved Yusuke just remembered what he was planning to do before. "Hey, Kags?"
"You know, we still gotta explain this to my other friends over there," he said while gesturing to who he was referring to.
"Oh yeah! Well, I'm Kagome Higurashi."
Suddenly, the orange-haired boy raced up to stand in front of Kagome and he knelt down onto his knees. Grabbing her hands, he began to talk. "Kagome, you're the most beautifulest person I've ever seen. You're even cuter than kitties! My name is Kuwabara Kazuma. Will you—oomph!" At this point, the position, wording, and everything about the situation was way too similar to Miroku...So, as they say old habits die hard, right? Well, after about three years of Miroku's infamous line, her muscles reacted on her own. You can use your imagination on this, right? Let's review:
Kneeling male + Holding hands + Cheesy line + Stupid grin !EQUALS! One painful slap in the face for the unfortunate (and horny) male
With that fact established, the impact of the slap created a resounding noise. While Kuwabara twitched in pain on the floor Yusuke was thoroughly shocked. He was planning on knocking out the buffoon himself for hitting on his cousin, but apparently she beat him to it. However, he abruptly snapped back to reality and proceeded in further punishing the poor form that was sprawled on the ground. "KUWABAKA YOU'RE SUCH A BAKA! AND STOP HITTIN' ON MY BABY COUSIN!"
Kurama and Kuwabara just froze in shock before the meanings sunk in. Surprisingly, they were both thinking: Cousins...Yusuke...Kagome...are cousins...
Meanwhile, Kagome just sweat-dropped and couldn't help but think: He's still so overprotective.
Trying to calm the fuming teenager, she wrapped her arms around him from behind and rested her head on his shoulder in a comforting manner. As the tension and anger in the air began to recede, Kagome began to speak. Unfortunately, she chose the wrong thing to say...
Blissfully unaware of the mistake she was about to make, she began to speak. "Relax 'suke-kun. Besides, at least he didn't ask me to bear his child..." After the last words escaped her lips, the young miko winced at the slip-up. 3.2.1...Blast-off.
