"Pawprint Pajamas"

Disclaimer: Feh!

Inuyasha was sitting in his favorite old tree sulking and pouting. The Feudal Era was boring without Kagome in it, and she was currently taking some kind of "test" in present day Japan.

He shifted his weight and lay on the branch length-wise, hands behind his head. He stayed there for a long time, until a familiar scent floated by his nose. Kagome......she was back almost a day early. His boredom was ended.

Kagome hauled herself out of the well and looked around for Inuyasha. She couldn't spot him in the thick foliage, and she started to the village to see if he was there. Halfway, Inuyasha landed in front of her, scaring her half to death.

"Where's your bag?" he asked, clearly disappointed that it wasn't with her. 'No bag, no ramen,' he thought sadly.

"Oh!" she jumped. "Where were you? I'm not going to stay here today, I've come to.....never mind, I'll tell you later."

"But I wanna know now!"

"Inuyasha, you're acting like Shippo."

"Don't compare me to that brat!"

"Then don't act like him."

"Feh."

"Feh yourself."

"You stole my word!"

"I don't see your name on it."

"Feh."
Shippo jumped out to meet them the second they became visible.

"Kagome! I missed you lots! Did Inuyasha make fun of you again? I heard you guys arguing....but don't worry Kagome, I'll protect you!" He grinned and hugged her neck. Kagome gave the kitsuné a hug and Shippo turned to look at the scowling Inuyasha.

"Are you jealous, Inuyasha?" he asked, hiding in Kagome's hair.

"Feh," he glared, turning around to walk into the forest. 'Heck yeah! Where's my hug?!'

"Inuyasha wait! Before you go stalking off, I have something to tell everyone!"

"Yeah, what is it?"

"What? Tell me! I wanna know now!" Shippo climbed around on her head.

"Lady Kagome, what is it?" Miroku asked, keeping close tabs on Sango's rear.

Kirara wound herself around Kagome's legs, and Sango turned around to slap Miroku. "Tell us Kagome!"

"Well," Kagome smiled, "I want all of you to come over to my house for a sleepover! My mom said I could have one, and I wanted to invite all of you!"

"What?" Inuyasha asked. "What's a sleep-over?"

"You'll find out!" Kagome turned to Sango and Miroku. "You guys'll come too, right?

"Of course Kagome!"

"Yes Lady Kagome, I shall come."

"Mew?"

"Yes, Kirara, you're invited too. What about you, Shippo?"

"Yes Kagome! I wanna come too!"

"Okay, Inuyasha?"

"Feh, how long is this gonna last?"

"Till tomorrow morning."

"I guess."

"Good, let's go! I even got you all some pajamas from my time!"

On the way to the well, Miroku thought about sang in his idea of pajamas, and Inuyasha pondered on the meaning of sleep-over.

Kagome held onto Kirara and Sango, and Inuyasha, after a bit of coaxing from Kagome, held onto Shippo and Miroku.

Kagome led them all into her house and picked up a note on the front door.

~-~-~-+-~-~-~

Kagome,

Grandpa, Sota, and I have gone down to Aunt Chika's for the night. We'll be back tomorrow morning. Have fun with your sleepover! Tell Inuyasha 'hi' for us!

-Mom

~-~-~-+-~-~-~

"Hey Inuyasha! Mom, Sota, and grandpa say hi!"

"Goody."

"Hey! That means we have free run of the house!" Kagome yelled.

"Yea!" Miroku cheered. "Hey, what's that mean?"

~-~-~-+-~-~-~

Kagome had instructed everyone NO TO TOUCH ANYTHING, and, of course, just to spite her, Inuyasha did.

He turned on the mixer and watched the blades turn in fascination........ until Kagome came by and turned it off.

"Inuyasha, why don't you watch MTV with Miroku? I have to clean up and make dinner, okay?"

He left and came back two minutes later. "I refuse to watch what Miroku's watching!" He sat himself in a kitchen chair and refused to move.

Kagome left to see what Inuyasha was talking about, and she came back with a smile.

"Why don't you want to watch it?" she asked.

"I'm not Miroku, that's why! Those women need to get some clothes on......"

"Aw......is the great Inuyasha embawassed?"

"Feh, I'd rather be in here anyway!"

"To keep a close eye on the food?"

"......"

Kagome shrugged and pulled out some ramen from the cupboard. "How much?"

She giggled when Inuyasha's eyes widened. "I...I don't know....." He gulped, nearly drooling at the sight of all of that ramen in one place.

"I bought extra just for you! Just give me a rough estimate, I can always make more!"

"Uh......."

~-~-~-+-~-~-~

"Ramen!" Inuyasha yelled, grabbing the bowl offered by Kagome.

"Inuyasha!" Miroku scolded, "Don't be such a pig!"

"Ewwwwww!" Shippo squeaked, turning his head.

"Aw, stop it guys, let him eat!" Kagome told the two guys, sticking up for Inuyasha. "I get the same way when I see oden!"

Sango winced inwardly. She really didn't want to see that.....

"More!" Inuyasha grinned happily, waving his bowl around in the air.

~-~-~-+-~-~-~

After the kitchen was cleaned, and the dishes washed, Kagome called everyone up to her room.

"Inuyasha, I'm going to need your help for a second. Everyone else, stay here. We'll be right back." She ordered, dragging Inuyasha to a storage closet. "We're going to need a few mattresses to sleep on," she said, pulling one from the closet. "Could you carry one?"

"Of course," he sighed, and stacked three of them in his arms. "Where do you want them?"

"In the living room, on the floor somewhere."

After the four mattresses were laid out, Kagome hauled Inuyasha back into her room.

"It's time to get ready for bed!"

"But it's not even nine o'clock yet...."

"Yeah, but we have to make the beds and eat popcorn!" she grinned and pulled out some pajamas from her dresser drawer.

"What are these, Lady Kagome?" Miroku asked.

"These, are pajamas!" she handed a pair of dark blue bottoms and a top that had little god stars on the cuffs and down the sides.

"Interesting...." he said, turning the cotton material over in his hands.

"Here Sango!" Kagome smiled and handed her best friend a pair of light pink pajamas with little white kitties on them.

"Pretty," Sango nodded happily.

"Where's mine Kagome?" Shippo asked, jumping on her shoulder.

"Right here, Shippo," she giggled, handing the kitsuné a light blue set of pajamas with little yellow crescent moons decorating it.

"Look Miroku! We'll match!" Shippo jumped to Miroku's shoulder and looked down at the monk's outfit.

"And Inuyasha, here's yours!" Kagome grinned and held out a pair of dark red pajama bottoms and a matching top. Black pawprints marched around on the dark red cloth.

"What the hell?! There is NO WAY I'm going to wear these!"

"But then we won't match!" Kagome sighed, pulling out some little pink booties for Kirara.

"Match? What are you talking about?"

"Look!" Kagome pulled a pair of green pajamas from a drawer, the same black pawprints spread across the material. "Please, can't you wear them?"

"Feh."

"Feh on you too," she pouted.

"No, I won't wear them."

"But you ARE a dog!!" Shippo squeaked, dodging behind Kagome just in time.

"He has a point, besides, you look......CUTE!" Miroku grinned, hiding behind Sango.

"Pretty please?"

"Feh!"

"If you don't I'll......"

"Okay! Anything but that!"

"Good," she grinned. "Now, let's get changed! Girls in here, guys in the bathroom down the hall!"

~-~-~-+-~-~-~

"Aw, Sango, that looks so cute on you!" Kagome smiled, happy that she'd made the right choice.

"The necklines kinda......."

"Here, button it up, I'll show you."

"Oh, would you put the booties on Kirara?"

"It's already done!"

"What do you suppose the guys'll look like?"

"Doncha' mean......Miroku?" Kagome laughed, gasping for breath when Sango's face reddened.

"Look who's talking! Gee, I wondered why you picked out an outfit for Inuyasha that matched yours! You just wanna sleep all curled up beside him......" Sango slapped a hand over her mouth just in time.

"HA! Looks like you love Miroku more than I thought! You're even starting to act like him!" Kagome still blushed at what Sango had said, because it was partially true........

~-~-~-+-~-~-~

Miroku sighed in the bathroom, and turned to look at Inuyasha and Shippo.

"Look!" Shippo exclaimed, pointing to the seat of his pants. "She even cut a hole for my tail!"

"You done?" Miroku asked the kit.

"Yeah."

"Then go wait outside of Kagome's room for her."

"Okay Miroku!"

When Shippo was gone, Miroku spoke up.

"I thought that the girls would be wearing some sexy nightgowns......." he sighed. "But in those things, we won't be able to see ANYTHING!"

"Quiet you pervert! How do you get this blasted thing on?"

"Like this!" Miroku grinned, his dark blue pajamas on the correct way. "But I don't know how to get the shirt closed."

"There!" Inuyasha sighed, pulling the shirt on, but leaving it open.

"I think we'd best ask Lady Kagome how to fasten these things."

"Yeah, I guess you're right. You know, these aren't too bad."

"And you look CUTE!" Miroku grinned and waggled his eyebrows, blinking constantly.

"I am NOT cute."

"I'll bet Kagome thinks so!" Miroku laughed, running out the door, nearly running into Sango. "Why! I didn't know you wanted to watch us change so much!"

"In your dreams."

"Here's tonight's rules!" Kagome announced, stepping out from behind Sango and clearing her throat. "No slapping, hitting, s-wording, cursing, TOUCHING IN INAPPROPRIATE PLACES! *Coughmirokucough* Okay, I think that's all! Let's go get some blankets and pillows from the linen closet."

"Um, Miroku, would you button your shirt up please?"

"Why, am I.......making you nervous?" He grinned and flexed his muscles, pulling his shirt away from his chest.

"Yes!" she squeaked.

"Sorry Lady Sango, I cannot! I don't know how......" He grinned sheepishly at her. "Would you button it for me?"

"Oh!"

"After we get the blankets and pillows guys!" Kagome yelled over her shoulder, Shippo, Kirara, and Inuyasha close behind her.
