Inuyasha found Kagome looking at the ocean, her lips curved down to a frown. He sighed and walked behind the girl, hugging her from the back unexpectedly, which made said girl jump.

"I-Inuyasha. What are you doing here? Is something wrong?" Kagome finally said,

Inuyasha shook his head, "Iie. Nandemonai. Demo, daijoubu ka?" He asked with a slight tone of concern in his voice.

Kagome smiled to herself at that. "Daijoubu desu." She replied, trying to get away from his grasp, but Inuyasha just held her more tightly.

"Kagome... Do you still love me? I mean, even now?" That took the girl by surprise.

Kagome blushed, "Y-yes. W-why'd y-you ask?" At that, Inuyasha smiled, much more of a smirk. Then he turned Kagome slowly, and leaned towards her face, which made her blush even more.

"Inu-" She was cut off by a demanding kiss. She closed her eyes slowly and sighed, This is life.

When Inuyasha broke away, she opened her eyes and blinked. "Inuyasha?"

"Kagome... I love you, too."

Five figures stood watching.

"Really, Kikyou... You're not gonna do anything about this?" Miroku asked,

"I agree with him. I mean, I'm just confused." Sango sweat dropped,

"Stop whining!" Shippou raised a finger and shook side to side as he tsked, "Let's just watch their sweet moments. Those are very rare. Especially when Inuyasha finds out that we're spying on them, who KNOWS what'll happen!"

Sango sighed, "I don't know what to say to that." She ran her fingers through Kirara's fur, as the said creature just meowed.

"Don't worry. I only did all of this to set them up." Kikyou smiled sadly at them,

"I'm still confused, but whatever you're thinking, you've done a good job!" Miroku grinned at her,

The others could simply nod, "Yep."
