A/N: Haha! My first fan fiction ever, that I plan on completing anyways. Feel free to comment, criticize, praise, whatever your fancy may be.

Living in a Horror Movie Chapter One: The Plan

She found him in a tree, just outside of Kaede's village. A new piece had just been added to the growing collection of Jewel Shards in the glass bottle that hung around Kagome's neck. The retrieval of the Shard had gone relatively smoothly, with only a few minor bumps and scrapes on their end. Kagome couldn't sense any more Shards in the area, which made it the perfect time for the plan she had in mind.

"So, Inuyasha," Kagome began nervously. "I was wondering if you would want to, oh, I don't know, come over to my house tonight?"

Inuyasha stared at her incredulously. "What?"

"Look, do you want to come over or not? I just thought that we all needed a break from Jewel hunting. And there's this new movie I want to watch."

"I don't know," Inuyasha said slowly, "we really do need to be out there looking for more Shards..."

Kagome's lower lip quivered, and her eyes began to shimmer with the threat of tears.

Even though he knew her tears were a ploy to sway his mind, Inuyasha felt his defenses crumble. 'Don't cry! Anything but that!' Inuyasha thought in panic. 'And it might be nice to spend some time alone with Kagome for once...'

"Alright, fine," Inuyasha said gruffly, folding his arms across his chest. "But just this once, you hear?"

With a squeal of delight, Kagome grabbed Inuyasha's hand impulsively. She didn't notice the blush that crept across his face as she gushed, "oh, Inuyasha, you won't regret it! Come on, lets go say goodbye, and then we can head back to my house! Sota's at a sleep over, my mom is working late, and Grandpa is out of town visiting some old friend of his. So it'll just be you, me, and Buyo!"

Inuyasha couldn't help but wonder what he had gotten himself into as she tugged him towards the village.

'We did pretty well,' Kagome thought to herself. 'It only took about two hours to pry Shippo off of me so that we could leave.'

Strolling through the isles of the movie rental store, Kagome scanned the new releases of the Horror section. Inuyasha trailed behind her, for once being quiet, as he peered at the strange, and sometimes gruesome, pictures on the covers. He wore a red baseball cap to cover his dog ears, which would no doubt attract unwanted attention. Even so, a few people stared at him, shocked by the long mass of white hair, and all red outfit.

"Ah, here it is," Kagome said, triumphantly snatching up the movie she was looking for.

Inuyasha glanced at the cover. It showed a mysterious shadow lurking behind a terrified looking young woman. The flash of a knife was hovering above her head. "Why do you watch this stuff?" he asked as she proceeded to move towards the front of the store, where a boy of about their age slouched idly on the edge of counter.

Handing the movie to the employee, Kagome pulled out her store discount card, while replying cheerfully, "it gives me a thrill." Handing over some money to the boy, she continued, "it'll be fun, you'll see!"

Inuyasha glared at the employee, who had brushed Kagome's hand as he handed her back her card and change.

Glancing sharply at Inuyasha, Kagome tugged on a lock of his hair. "Come on, Inuyasha." Picking up the movie, and quickly thanking the employee, she led him to the door, still holding his hair in her firm grasp. Ignoring his yowls of protest, she said, "let's go back to my place."

A/N: Okay, that's the first chapter. Short, I know, but this isn't going to turn out to be a very long fan fiction anyways. I'm trying to shoot for the quality of writing, not the quantity. Okay, so it may not be exciting, but I promise to pick up the pace a bit in the next chapter or so. And keep in mind I am a poor inexperienced newbie still! I see the winces, I know. But, as they say, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Or something like that... Comments are more than welcome!
