Disclaimer: I do not own Inuyasha or any other character from the show.

AN: Hehe. I don't really know what to write over here.this is my first fanfic so don't overwhelm me by telling me how bad it is.

"Excuse me." Kagome said as she glanced at the flight attendants pin. "Ashley; When are we going to arrive in Japan?"

The flight attendant looked down at Kagome and put on a fake smile.

"Two more hours, pumpkin." She answered. Kagome watched Ashley walk away with a sweet smile on her face. She looked out her window and smiled.

Only two more hours. she thought.

Kagome leaned back into her comfy seat and fell asleep.

(Jen: Okay.you must have no idea about what's going on so I'll explain. Kagome is on a plane going to Japan from America. Everything else will be explained later. Please don't just stop reading this because I'll get really mad if you do!!)

~*~*~*~*~Kagome's Dream/Flashback~*~*~*~*~

Four kids were sitting at a dock, looking out into the sunset. The sun cast a friendly orange tint onto the ocean and the children. They were Kagome and her childhood friends; Sango, Miroku, and Inuyasha.

They looked so ridiculous. They were all wearing gigantic t-shirts that were 3 sizes too big and shorts that went up to their knees.

"Don't you want to go out to the other side?" Inuyasha asked as he skidded a pebble across the water's surface.

Plop.

Plop.

Clunk.

"I guess I never really thought about it." Sango said as she rubbed the back of her head. The others sat down on the dock and there was silence as they thought.

"When I grow up, I'm gonna buy a boat and go to the other side with Miroku." Inuyasha stated. Miroku nodded along as if it were the greatest idea in the world.

"Of course," Miroku said. "You girls can come too." Sango got red as if she got insulted.

"Hey!" Sango shouted. "Just because we're girls doesn't mean-."

"But then who's gonna take care of me?" Kagome interrupted with concern in her voice.

Everyone stared at her. she was obviously the smallest out of all of them.

"Promise that we'll stick together to the end." Kagome said as she stuck out her pinky.

Everyone knew that it would happen but Kagome was the youngest and they didn't want to disappoint her.

"Okay." Sango said as she linked her pinky with Kagome's. Kagome frowned when Inuyasha didn't join their three pinkies.

"Inu-chan." Kagome whined. "Who's gonna protect me from all the big kids?"

Inuyasha swished his long black hair and tried not to make contact with Kagome's gigantic puppy eyes. He turned away from them. But he turned around again with a smile on his face.

"You know that I don't have to promise anything." Inuyasha said. Kagome's head slumped down in defeat.

"You know that I will always be there for you guys." Inuyasha finished. He walked up to them and entwined his small pinky with the group's.

Soon, they made a promise to be the best of friends.

"Please put your chair in an upright position." Miroku said.

~*~*~*~*~End of Dream/Flashback~*~*~*~*~

"What?" Kagome muttered as she opened her eyes.

"Ahh!" Kagome screamed. "The light!" She placed her arms over her head to protect her eyes from the bright light that seemed to blind her.

A rude man hollered at her to shut up.

"Heh..he..um..sorry." Kagome said as she looked down to hide her blush. She quickly pulled her chair upright.

*** Kagome walked calmly out of the airport and looked around for her family.

"It's her!" someone shouted. She felt someone hug her from behind.

She managed to escape the grip of doom and saw a boy about 14 years old. He had short black hair and dark eyes.

"It's me." He continued. "Souta." Kagome gasped in realization.

Souta was 4 years old when she left with her father to go to America. She grimaced at the thought of her father. He died and that was the reason she had to come back to Japan.

"I missed you too Souta." Kagome said with enthusiasm in her voice. She blinked when she looked up and saw a familiar face.

"Mom." Kagome whispered. Her mom stepped forward and for a while. there was silence.

"It's been such a long time Kagome." Her mom said with tears in her eyes. "And look how you've grown! You look so beautiful! Oh my, let me help you with your bags. Souta, bring Kagome's bags into the car."

"Mom." Kagome whined. "You're embarrassing me!"

"I have every right to do so." Her mom replied. "I haven't seen you in ten years!"

Kagome turned away and started to walk away from her mom as if she didn't know her. Then she saw an old man in the corner. He nodded at her and she immediately recognized him as her grandfather.

She nodded back at him and turned around to see Souta with the biggest, brightest, and shiniest eyes in the world.

"Agghh!" Kagome shouted. She put her body into a weird position as if she was trying to run away. Her left eyebrow twitched as her brother stared at her with stars in his eyes.

"You have to tell me all about America!" Souta exclaimed.

"Souta." Kagome's mom said before he could overwhelm Kagome with excitement. "Your sister must be very tired after her flight. Maybe you will find time to talk about America tomorrow."

"Okay." Souta sighed in defeat. He carried Kagome's bags to the car with heavy feet and over exaggerated how disappointed he was.

***

They packed Kagome's stuff into the trunk and had a silent drive home.

Kagome looked out of the window and her eyes filled with hope.

I'm finally home. she thought.
