Things Don't Always Turn Out That Way

*Okay, note here. I was listening to this song last night at like three in the morning. I don't know why but I woke up and wanted to hear it… And I realized that it almost perfectly fits the whole inu/kagome love situation. So review and tell me 1) if you like it 2) if you hate it or 3) you want me to die because you think that inu is destined to be with kikyo (hahaha yeah right that would be horrible.) oh and so y'all know, I don't get to watch inuyasha all that often "go to bed right now, it's a school night" so I give you my deepest apologies if any of the characters are a little ooc, which they probably are….

disclaimer: I don't own this song. I don't own The Calling. I don't own Inuyasha or Kagome. I do own, however, a crazy cat that eats my toes, a ballpoint pen that squirts fake ink at you, and a box of those little reinforcement labels.

Well he can't sleep at night

And he can't do what's right

It was all because she came into his life

It's a deep obsession taking up his time

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

One dark humid night in a forest somewhere in Feudal Japan, a band of friends lay sleeping in the middle of a clearing in the woods. All slept soundly, except for one, who had almost fallen out of a tree. He caught himself on a branch and pulled himself back up, grumbling about the vivid dreams that had plagued him for the past month or so. Thinking back, he realized the reason why he had begun to close himself off from the others, why he was more distracted than he ever had been in his life, and the spurts of protectiveness that he felt coming from his demon half. And this realization made him lose his grip on the tree branch and fall with a loud thud to the ground.

She's all that he wants, she's all that he needs

She's everything he just won't believe

Take away his doubt, turn him inside out

Then she can see what he's been dying to say

But things don't always turn out that way

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Ever since he had first seen those rich, chocolatey brown eyes, he had known deep down that he was in big trouble. At first, he had refused to believe it, but with every passing day, the thought nipped at the corners of his mind until he thought that he was going crazy. He pushed the thought away in great mental battles, all the while becoming more distant and irritable. When his friends, or even worse her, came asking what was wrong, he shoved them away, fearing that they would find out his deepest secret. For if they discovered that, he would have to leave in disgrace. She could not possibly love someone like him. 

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

And he must confess

All the impure thought of his beautiful temptress

Although he keeps it all bottled up inside

Although he keeps it all safe within his mind, oh yeah

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In an attempt to rid himself of his burden, he had tried going to Miroku, in the hopes that he would be understood. But he could not tell the monk. He tried and tried, but fearing what might come out of the telling, he changed the subject and stomped moodily off into the forest, leaving with stares burning into his back. Once he reached one of his many favorite trees, he leaped up to think about what could be done and how he could possibly let her know how he felt. Yet there was always that fear of rejection that made him turn away from the idea. So he did what he had been doing since he met her: he kept his true feelings inside and put on a moody front.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

She's all that he wants, she's all that he needs

She's everything that he just won't believe

Take away his doubt, turn him inside out

Then she can see what he's been dying to say

But things don't always turn out that way

Back at the campsite, the rest of the group sat uncomfortably in the silence that Inuyasha had left. Sango and Miroku tried to start a new conversation with the hopes that this was just another of Inuyasha's outbursts, but they soon failed. This one had a different sort of ring to it. Kagome sat staring into the fire. She had a feeling that Inuyasha was going to say something important to Miroku but when he had caught on that everyone else was listening, he had become flustered. An idea popped into her head and she stood up mumbling that there was something she had to do and walked quickly off in the direction that Inuyasha had gone. She had to find out if her thought was true.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

So wipe that smile off your face

Before it gets too late

There's only so much time

For you to make up your mind

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Inuyasha sat unhappily in his tree, knowing that his feelings would come out eventually, whether he wanted them to or not. He loved her too much. A breeze passed through, ruffling his silver hair. He was upwind of the approaching Kagome, but his ears pricked up at the sound of her footsteps. He immediately froze, hoping that she would pass on but at the same time hoping that she would stop. She passed on, still searching for him. Inuyasha realized that the jewel was almost completed and that if he didn't tell her how he felt now, then he would probably lose his chance. He alighted from the tree, letting Kagome know where he was. She spun, thinking it possibly was a demon, but sighed when she saw it was only him. "Kagome, I need to tell you something…."

okay I hope y'all like that. I know that it's all probably really out of character, but oh well…review and tell me what you think. I just wanted to get this out because I'm not sure of the next time I'll be able to have free time to type…(finals. Urrrgh.)
