A/N: Wow, I didn't realize how long it's been since I've even touched this story. Not to mention I left it at such a horrible cliff hanger. :p I do realize how horribly written it is, and I do realize that Unsuspecting Love is even worse. In time, I do not know when, I will go back and rewrite it. But until then, I'm just going to try and finish this. Don't forget, I was thirteen when I wrote all of this and I was a new writer, so don't kill me. Haha! Bear with me. ( :


Winning You Back

Chapter 8
It All Comes Down To This


Out of the thousands of things she wanted to say at that moment, she couldn't. All she could do was stand there and stare at them.

The two people she trusted the most. No.

The two people she cared about more than anything, the two people she loved with all her heart, betrayed her.

When she found out something weird was going on, out of all the things she expected it to be, she never expected it to be something like this. And from the look on Sesshomaru's face, it was pretty obvious this has been going on for a while.

"K-Kagome?" Inuyasha said her name with such shock it scared her. His eyes got wide as he quickly pushed Sango away from him. "It's not what you think!"

She walked out the door and brushed past them, stopping a few feet from them. "Don't you ever talk to me again." She could feel the tears coming as she spoke those words. It was one of the hardest things she ever had to say.

And with that she left, leaving the two to think about what they just did.


It didn't take long for her to get home, and the minute she did she ran upstairs and jumped on her bed burying her face in her pillow.

"How could I be so stupid?" She pounded her fist hard against her bed. She was trying her best not to cry, but it was inevitable.

She didn't understand how she didn't see the signs: the lack of calling, the lack of interest in their relationship, the lack of everything. Not to mention she didn't notice how her friends slowly started to shy away from her.

Everything was starting to make sense.

She started to cry, not being able to hold it in anymore. It was all just too much.

Inuyasha, the one boy she gave a chance to (practically the only boy she really gave a chance too), screwed her over. The one boy who made all those promises. The one boy who wouldn't give up on her.

Where did that boy go?

She turned over in her bed and stared up at the ceiling. She knew she had to get her mind off of everything. Right now she didn't want to think about how shitty everything was going. She didn't want to remember the good time, and then to think about how they turned bad.

She shook her head. not having anything better to do, she went on her computer. As soon as she logged in her e-mail popped up showing she had a new message. That was strange.

I apologize for you having to see that. I did not realize he would be home so soon... My brother is an idiot. If you need someone to talk to don't hesitate to e-mail me, or maybe we can meet for coffee.

Sesshomaru

She intently stared at the screen to see if she read that right. If her mind wasn't tricking her, it kind of seemed like Inuyasha's brother was asking her on a date! Did he actually pity her? That didn't seem like him at all. Too many weird things were happening at a time. But maybe, going out to coffee wouldn't be that bad.

"Maybe I can get some information on," she held back her tears as the memories starting flowing back," those two."

She opened up a reply message.

I might just have to take you up on that offer. Anytime would be fine with me, just let me know when. Thank you again, without you I'd still be left in the dark about all of this.

Kagome

She clicked reply and took in a deep breath. If she got lucky, he would want it to be soon. She didn't know how much longer she could wait to see exactly what went on when she was gone. Honestly, she didn't even want to think about him, but there's just some things you need to know.

Then it suddenly hit her like a ton of bricks, what ever happened to Miroku? Maybe her first order of business was to consult Miroku.

She picked up her phone and dialed his Miroku's number.

"Moshimoshi," he answered in a cheery tone.

"Mirkou, It's Kagome."

"Ahh, lovely Kagome! I heard you're back in town-"

She cut him off. "Are you busy right now?"

"No, just sitting around at home, why?" he sounded a little suspicious.

"Meet me at the park in an hour."

"Alright..."

She hung up the phone. Miroku had to know something, after all him and Sango did have something going on for a while.

Her computer screen beeped a couple times. She glanced over to see what popped up on her screen.

Dog Demon: It's not what you think. I love you.

Dog Demon: Meet me tomorrow, we could talk.

Dog Demon: Hello? Kagome...

She immediately signed off of AIM and closed down her computer.

"Why...?" She hugged her knees and laid her head down in between them. It was over between them, nothing could change what she saw. But why did she feel like it was all her fault?


A/N: If any of you are still reading this...hope you enjoyed bahaha.
