Chapter 1: Shopping
Shrimp, pork, vegetable, spicy, beef, chicken…
As Kagome crammed the Styrofoam bowls of ramen into her already overflowing basket, she wondered if she was dooming her friends to a death by sugar and sodium. Honestly, all this junk she was feeding them was bound to affect them somehow…
Giggling slightly over an image of her friends as obesities, she distractedly grabbed for one last bowl, not noticing that someone else was reaching for the same one until their fingers touched.
Kagome let out a small 'meep' of surprise, quickly drawing back her hand. The other hand, however, stayed where it was.
"I'm sorry, did I startle you?"
The owner of the hand was a boy her height, with soft brown hair that framed his heart-shaped face and huge brown eyes. His clothing was simple, consisting of a plain blue T-shirt and baggy brown cargo shorts. He seemed like a very pleasant type of person, Kagome decided. His expression was kind and his voice was gentle.
"Ah, it's okay," Kagome reassured him. "I already have plenty."
The boy smiled at her, and Kagome couldn't help but to blush slightly, adverting her eyes. He's kind of cute…
As she suddenly found her sandals very interesting, she noticed the boy's own shopping basket and how its contents were eerily similar to her own: bags of potato chips, various packages of sweets, especially Pocky, cans of soda, and, of course, bowls of ramen. In fact, the only difference was that his basket also contained several containers of instant coffee.
Hm, wonder if that'll come in handy too…
He noticed it too.
"Friends?" he inquired. Kagome nodded.
"I'm going over to visit them tonight, and where they are, it's kind of hard getting these kinds of things," Kagome replied. "I know it's really unhealthy, but they're all addicted to this stuff."
The boy let out a small laugh that made him look even cuter and made Kagome's blush deepen. "My friends are all into this stuff too. Sometimes it annoys me half to death the way they keep pestering me to buy them 'commoner' food."
Kagome cocked her head to the side, looking understandably confused.
"Rich bastards," the boy informed her. "It's like they're from a whole other world, and anything normal fascinates them."
Well, my friends are from another world…or time, anyways…
Kagome held out her hand. "My name's Higurashi Kagome."
The boy shook it. "Fujioka Haruhi. Pleased to meet you."
A pleasant warmth filled her from the inside out. I doubt that he's a time traveler, but somehow, I think I've found a kindred spirit.
Hm, looks like I started a new crossover...sigh...I'll never figure out how to make that Naruto story work out...
Well, this is just a friendship fic in which Kagome finds a new friend in her own time that deals with his (her) own brand of crazy shit. Not exactly as dangerous as having to fight demons, but plenty of hair-tearing situations all the same. No plot. Short, sweet, and simple. No idea how long this will be. Expect the casts from both shows to pop up, if I ever get to update this regularly...
Dang, the next chapter of my Inuyasha/Death Note fic is almost done, but I can't get it exactly right...
