A/N: I was going to wait on starting this fic, but it just
wouldn't leave me alone. ^_^;; So here's another multipart
story for me to be working on in my admittedly limited spare
"Making the Grade"
High school sucks. It's a fact that is generally agreed upon by
all high school students, even though their parents repeatedly
assure them that it will eventually be considered the best four
years of their lives- a disturbing thought, indeed.
Higurashi Kagome, however, was just glad that she'd gotten in.
She was an excellent student, but it probably would've been far,
far easier to make it into a decent school had she not been
chasing youkai, jewel shards, dead priestesses, and men in
monkey costumes through the feudal ages for most of her spare
time, little of it as she had. As it was, she hadn't exactly
been able to pick and choose, and therefore wasn't in the same
school as any of her junior high girlfriends.
All the same, she was enormously grateful not to have failed the
entrance exams, as Inu-Yasha had so sincerely hoped. If she
wasn't in school, he reasoned, they could search for the shards
of the Shikon Jewel full-time. The heartfelt expression of this
sentiment the very day of said entrance exams had earned the
poor fool ten sits in a row, which had done a great deal towards
stress relief for Kagome but left him limping for the rest of
the week. Miroku and Shippou had been excessively amused; Kaede
and Sango, annoyed by his stupid testosterone and inability to
admit that the only thing he really wanted to do was get Kagome
in bed. Unfortunately, Inu-Yasha was rather stupid (just ask
one of his many, many rivals/sworn enemies), even for a youkai,
and lacking both charm and patience, so it was more or less a
Last night he had again attempted to seduce the lovely lady
Kagome with his coarse manners, poor hygiene, and sweet nothings
of "bitch" and "damned woman". Surprisingly enough, this
dashing young Romeo of the feudal period had only succeeded in
seriously pissing off his fair Juliet and shamelessly ruining
her beauty sleep, then being "sat" from a second-story window.
The repercussions of his stubborn libido lasted until the next
day (although Kagome certainly hadn't known he was trying to get
her into bed without any kind of formal courtship or marriage
license to precede the event, else she'd have sat him harder),
when our young heroine Kagome found herself waking up late for
her first day of high school. A few colorful curses about dog
demons later, she was out the door with the last bite of
breakfast still in her mouth and wearing her spiffy new uniform
of a maroon blazer, skirt, and green tie. But enough with the
Because unfortunately for poor Kagome, she was about to get in a
hell of a lot more trouble than she needed- beginning with the
runaway ramen cart on its way to colliding with her well dressed
