Running From A Killer

By: Youkai Koinu

Chapter 4: The Party

Kagome sat on the bed in her room and was currently reading a book that she had borrowed from Izayoi. She had put her dark raven black hair into a tight bun held up by two elegant navy blue chopsticks with silver swirls but left two wavy strands to caress her cheeks. She had a silver chain around her neck with a navy blue butterfly hanging off of it. She also had a thin butterfly bracelet. The butterflies alternated from navy to black and she wore no make-up.

She was so engrossed in the book she was reading that she nearly fell off of the bed when she heard a knock at the door. She calmed herself down and walked over to the door. She opened it and looked up into the face of none other than…

Inuyasha's POV

Inuyasha sat in his room watching an action movie when he heard a knock on the door. He jumped up off of his bed and walked over to his bedroom door. He opened the door to reveal the face of Izayoi. She was dressed in an ivory silk dress that ended below her feet and she had left her hair down to trail down her back. She wore pearl earrings and a single strand of pearls around her neck.

"Hi mom." Inuyasha said politely. His mother looked him over making sure he was dressed appropriately, and was pleased to see that he had his tux on. He also had his hair tied back into a low ponytail.

"Inuyasha, would you mind going to Kagome's room and telling her to come on downstairs, please? The guests starting to arrive and I need to go downstairs and greet them with your father." Izayoi stated.

Inuyasha looked at his mom. That was one of the things he loved about his mom. She always asked him to do things instead of telling him. "Of course mom. I'm just gonna turn off the movie and then I'll go get her." Inuyasha said.

"Thanks Inuyasha." Izayoi said, before spinning on her heal and walked down the hall to the elevator. (Their house is huge so, yes they have an elevator.) He watched as she disappeared into the elevator before stepping back into his room and walking over to his DVD player and shutting it off. The TV was soon turned off also and he began his trek to the guest quarters.

Once there he found Kagome's room and knocked on the door. The door opened and Kagome peeked out from behind it, with a book held tightly in her hand.

Kagome's POV

"Oh, Inuyasha, it's you." Kagome said. She smiled at him. He looked down at her.

"I was told to come get you for the party so hurry up, and lets go already." Inuyasha said taking in her angelic appearance. She nodded, rolled her eyes and stepped back from the door to walk over to her nightstand, place a bookmark in the book and set her book down. She then grabbed her heals and slipped them on before hurriedly returning to the doorway and following Inuyasha.

Inuyasha led her through many elegant halls until finally stopping at a glass elevator. It was beautiful. You could see right through it to the parallel hallway. Inuyasha pressed the down arrow from the fourth floor. The elevator finally arrived moments later and the doors slid open. Inuyasha stepped in and Kagome followed suit. Inuyasha then pressed the button for the first floor and watched as Kagome rushed to the side of the car and grasped the silver railing that adorned the sides of the car.

Kagome gasped as she watched the floors pass by one by one until finally they reached the first floor. She waited until Inuyasha exited and then followed him as he led her through yet another many hallways until they finally reached a huge room.

Kagome's eyes widened at the beauty of the room. It was huge. On the outskirts of the room were many round tables with eight chairs at each of them. In the middle of each table sat an arrangement of purple and blue flowers. Each table also had it's own white table cloth. At every seat there was a plate with salad, a glass of water and a glass of tea. There were also napkins with silverware inside and they had sugar packets, salad dressing and crackers arranged in little glass holders on the table towards the middle.

The light was dim and there was a DJ table sitting in the right-hand corner with a man sitting behind it flipping through disks. The room was already about a quarter filled with guests so far. Kagome followed Inuyasha to where Izayoi and Inutaisho were standing and greeting a group of three people.

One was a shorter lady with long light brown hair down to the small of her back. She had green eyes and wore a black dress that stopped at the floor. She looked to be a fox demon and Kagome could tell that the woman was kind by the way her eyes sparkled with mirth. Standing beside the woman was a small Kitsune that looked to be only about seven years old and looked adorable in his small tux. His fiery orange hair was in stark contrast with his suit and he had bright green eyes. His hair was pulled up into a ponytail and he had a small furry tail poking out of the back of his tux.

On the other side of the kit was a short man with a striking resemblance to the kit. He had the same bright green eyes and fiery orange hair. He had on a gray suit and black dress shoes. He looked like a fox demon also since he had a larger foxes tail than the small kit's. Kagome guessed that the woman and man were the kits parents.

Izayoi watched as Kagome walked over to them with Inuyasha and she waved at Kagome. "Kagome this is Mrs. Kaiya Nakamura, Mr. Kisho Nakamura, and their son, Shippo Nakamura. Kaiya, Kisho, and Shippo, this is Kagome." Izayoi introduced.

Kagome smiled kindly at the family. Then they left to go sit at a table on the opposing side of the room. Kagome felt a tug on her sleeve and looked over to see Izayoi motion for Kagome to follow her. Kagome followed Izayoi into another room where Izayoi turned to face her.

"Kagome, I want to warn you. Some people here will not act very nice to you since you are new here and they may see you as a threat to them." Kagome stared at Izayoi for a moment.

"How would I be a threat to them?" Kagome asked.

"Because they may believe that you are going to steal Sesshoumaru or Inuyasha away from them. So just ignore them if you can." Izayoi stated. Kagome nodded and Izayoi led them back into the main room.

Izayoi excused herself saying that she had to be getting back to Inutaisho and Kagome nodded then watched her go. Kagome decided that she would walk around a bit.

Sesshoumaru's POV

Sesshoumaru was talking to his friend Hiten, when he suddenly felt someone come up behind him and wrap their arms around his waist. He stopped and growled low in his throat, but the arms remained. He yanked the arms off of him and whipped around.

"Get away from me Yura and never touch me again." He demanded. She shrunk back a little.

"Aw, but Sesshoumaru I just wanted to say hi." She said softly. Yura Saito was the daughter of a very rich businessman, Kiro Saito. Kiro was a highly respected man, but his daughter had not turned out as well. She was used to getting what she wanted and everyone knew that what she had recently been wanting was for him to date and then marry her. He was no fool. He knew what she wanted him for. And that was for his money. It was well known that he was to take over his fathers multi-billon dollar company in less than a year. He was seventeen and his brother was sixteen.

Women wanted both of them for their money and looks. But no one had he meant yet that wanted him or his brother for any other reasons. "If you just wanted to say hi then why not go to someone, other than me, and tell them hi." He said in an icy tone, his cold eyes telling her to go find some other rich man's bank account to try and sink her claws into, because it was not going to be his. He watched as Yura huffed and turned on her heel to leave.

Inuyasha's POV

Inuyasha was sitting at the table where Inutaisho, Izayoi, Kagome, Sesshoumaru, and he would sit. That's when he saw Kagome walking around with a worried expression on her face. So he stood up, dusted himself off and walked over to her. She was currently facing away from her so he tapped on her shoulder to get her attention.

She whipped around and looked up at Inuyasha. A relieved expression replaced the former worried one and she smiled sheepishly. "Umm Inuyasha… could you please tell me where the bathroom is?" She asked.

Inuyasha nodded and sighed. "Come on. And hurry." He said over his shoulder. Kagome nodded and rushed to follow him. He led her out of the room and down a long hallway until he reached an oak door.

"There." He said pointing to the door. Kagome nodded and walked inside. She quickly used the restroom and washed her hands. She then left the room and almost slammed into Inuyasha's chest.

"Oh, did you need to go? You could have told me and I would've let you go first." Kagome said. Inuyasha shook his head.

"No. I just figured that, if you were too stupid your way here that you would probably be too stupid to find your way back." Inuyasha sneered.

Kagome glared at Inuyasha and clenched her tiny fists at her side. "I'll have you know that I was a straight A student in my first year of high school!" She yelled at him. He cringed but quickly recovered and laughed.

"Oh really, and what happened in your second year, you failed?" Inuyasha asked rudely.

"No. Actually I was supposed to start this coming year but my parents were killed. They left money for me in the bank but I had to eat so that's what I spent it on. Therefore I couldn't go to school anymore." Kagome whispered, she could feel the familiar pricks in the back of her eyes and ran. She would not let him, or anyone else see her cry.

Inuyasha had no clue what had just happened. Then he realized that he had made her cry and had made her think of her parents. He huffed and then said "Keh." Then he turned and went back to the party. Once he arrived he scanned the room but couldn't find her anywhere. So he did the only thing he could think of. He went to look for his mother. He found her talking to that runt Shippo's mom. He tapped on her shoulder and told him that Kagome had run off somewhere and he couldn't find her.

When she asked what had happened he told her he had taken her to the bathroom and then called her stupid and then she ran off.

Izayoi glared at Inuyasha. "Why did you call her stupid! Inuyasha Takahashi I am very disappointed in you!" She yelled at him causing him to cringe and for Inutaisho to hurry over to them.

"What happened?" Inutaisho asked. Izayoi turned to face her husband.

"Inuyasha decided to tell Kagome that she was stupid because she couldn't find her way to the bathroom." Izayoi repeated. Inutaisho's eyes hardened as he looked at his youngest son.

"And what made you say that? If I remember correctly when you were little you couldn't find your way to the bathroom once that was right across the hall and we had been here for a month. Now how could you expect her to find her way to one when she just moved here, Inuyasha?" Inutaisho said his voice angry. "I suggest that you not say anything else like that to her again."

Inuyasha nodded. He was in for it now. He watched as his father and mother walked out of the room and went to look for Kagome.

Kagome's POV

Kagome sat in her room crying in to a pillow on her bed, when she heard a soft knock on her door. She wiped her eyes, straightened her dress and walked to her door, silently hoping that it wasn't Inuyasha and that whoever it was wouldn't be able to tell that she had been crying. She opened the door to stare into the face of Izayoi. Izayoi's face showed her concern and she hugged Kagome.

"I'm so sorry that Inuyasha made you cry. I will tell you know that he's going to be punished for it. I don't think he meant to make you cry by calling you stupid. I know as well as he that you aren't stupid." Izayoi said softly.

Kagome nodded and said, "I know it just reminded me of my parents."

"Your parents called you stupid!" Izayoi asked stepping back to look at Kagome.

Kagome shook her head. "No! It's just that he asked if I failed or something my second year of high school and I told him that this was the year my parents died. That's why I thought of them." Kagome said.

"Oh. I take it you never finished your second year." Izayoi asked staring at Kagome. Kagome shook her head once more.

"No I was supposed start this coming year but I used all the money my parents left me on food." Kagome said.

"I see. Well I'll enroll you in Inuyasha and Sesshoumaru's school." Izayoi said.

Kagome gasped. "But… all that money for books and stuff! I can't let you pay for all that!" Kagome said.

"Kagome you are going to let me pay for it and that is final. I see you as a daughter and I will not have you going without an education." Izayoi said in a tone that left no room for argument. Kagome nodded and then followed Izayoi back down to the party.

AN: I will make the next chapter with the rest of the party. I have to update other stories so I'll try to update this one again soon I really enjoy writing this one. Love y'all! Bye!
