Disclaimer - I don't own Inuyasha or the song Dreaming by BT, I am simply using it for my fanfic and im writing this for the people's enjoyment!



~*~*~*

It was Thursday afternoon after school and everybody was gathered at my shrine/house, when I say everybody I mean Kikyo, Miroku, and Sesshoumaru. We've been practicing like crazy since the day Sesshoumaru showed up to practice, like a week ago. It was grueling work, we've been perfecting are performance six hours a day after school. Most of the time everybody ate over before we went back to practicing for another hour.



Today was the last day we got to practice before tomorrow and the Battle of the Bands, and currently I had a guitar hanging off my neck and I was tuning it, it's amazing how fast you learn to play when your teacher is Sesshoumaru. It's not like I learned how to play every song or anything, just the ones we are playing at the school.



When I sent Sesshoumaru the songs we were going to play he immediately had something to say about it, so to keep him on the band and to stop glaring at everybody we changed the songs. So we've been learning two different songs ever since Sesshoumaru joined. We also sound way better and the songs that we have now are sure to make us win.



I finished tuning the Guitar that I was holding and looked around the room to make sure everybody else was ready. I looked at Sesshoumaru first and he nodded at me to indicate he was ready. I looked over at Miroku and he waved his hand with the drum stick in it, at me. I lastly looked at Kikyo and she turned a few knobs on the Keyboard and then looked up at me and waved before turning back to her Keyboard.



I nodded my head over to Sesshoumaru and he ran his pick over the strings and Kikyo took that as the signal to start and was followed by Miroku with the drums. I stood up to the Microphone that wasn't turned on. I lowered my voice to where it didn't sound so girlish and started to sing. The words flowed out of my mouth and my fingers instinctively started playing the notes on the guitar.



After about an hour of this I finally got sick and tired of singing the same two songs for a week straight, they were permanently embedded in my head and I didn't think I would ever forget how to sing the song perfectly. The songs were so irratating to me at this point that I didn't think even a couple being all sweet and loving in front of me could have pissed me off worse.



" I'm tired of doing the same songs six-seven hours everyday, I want to take a short break and do a different song, does anyone else agree?" I looked around and saw only Kikyo raising her hand.



'Fine, I only need keyboard for this song anyway, so why don't you guys go and sit down and take a breather"



When Sesshoumaru and Miroku sat down on same plush chairs around the room I went over and told Kikyo the song we were going to play, I smiled when i saw her eyes light up. I was going to sing one of my favorite songs by BT, I wanted to sing it at The Battle of the Bands but the song only needed a Keyboard person and a singer.



I removed my guitar and went and put it in it's case before going back and taking the microphone, I decided to turn it on so everyone through out the house could hear. People in the shrine part could probably hear it too.



No words, no talk.

We'll go dreaming



No pain, no hurt.

We'll go dreaming



Walk with me,

The future's at hand.

here with us,

here where you stand.

We both know the power of pain,

We get back up and start it again.

With new hope, No place for tears,

Leave behind those frozen years.

Come with me and we'll go dreaming.



We don't know how it can be,

searching out dignity.

Nothing can be as savage as love,

One taste is never enough.

With new hope, no place for tears.

Catch my hand and come with me.

Close your eyes and dream.



(Keyboard solo 79 seconds)

I opened my eyes and looked at Miroku and Sesshoumaru, both their eyes were glued to me, I smiled a bit and closed my eyes again as Kikyo's part was almost over. As soon as the keyboard got to it's last solo note, I opened my mouth and the slow trance like words flowed from my parted lips.



No words, no talk.

we'll go dreaming

No pain, no hurt.

we'll go dreaming



Catch my hand and come with me,

Close your eyes and dream.



No words, no talk.

we'll go dreaming

No pain, no hurt.

we'll go dreaming

No words, No talk.

We'll go dreaming

No pain, no hurt.

we'll go dreaming



( 20 second keyboard solo)



( We'll go dreaming )

( We'll go dreaming )

( We'll go dreaming )

( We'll go dreaming )

( We'll go dreaming )

( We'll go dreaming )

( We'll go dreaming )

Catch my hand and come with me

Close your eyes and dream

( We'll go dreaming )

( We'll go dreaming )



No words, no talk.

we'll go dreaming

No pain, no hurt.

we'll go dreaming

No words, No talk.

We'll go dreaming

No pain, no hurt.

we'll go dreaming

No words, no talk.

we'll go dreaming

No pain, no hurt.

we'll go dreaming

No words, No talk.

We'll go dreaming

No pain, no hurt.

we'll go dreaming



The song ended and silence enveloped everybody I opened my eyes slowly and saw everyone looking at me wonder written on Miroku's face and Sesshoumaru's face was still has blank as ever but his eyes gave him away. His eyes seemed to be peaceful and glazed over, as if he was in a trance. He recovered soon enough and looked at me.



"Ready to start again?" He got up from his chair and went to stand in his spot with guitar in hand. I sighed inwardly as I went to get my guitar out of it's case and strap it over my neck, five minutes later we were back to practicing for tomorrow's Battle of the Bands.
