Chapter 4:

Inuyasha, Kagome, and Billy all left the town quickly and started to head towards Mexico.

"So where are you two from?" Billy asked.

"Japan." Kagome said.

That made Billy stomp his horse. "Whoa. Japan? Did I hear you right?" He asked, but only got a nod from Kagome. "That's really far away. How did you get here?"

"It's a long story." Kagome said. And I don't think anyone would believe us. She thought.

"Suite yourself." Billy sighed as he started to ride his horse again. It was starting to get dark. "We should make camp somewhere. It's getting dark and it's not safe to travel at night in these parts." Billy stated.

"Fine with me. You wanna stop Kagome?" Inuyasha asked.

"Yeah." Kagome said before she let out a yawn.

"OK. Let's set up right over there." Billy said as he pointed to a small area that was hidden a little under some bush so it wouldn't be as easy for them to be found that night by anyone who might be searching for them. "It should be safer than out in the open where we are."

Inuyasha jumped over to the spot where Billy had pointed to and let Kagome slid off his back. She stood next to him. "Thanks Inuyasha."

"You're pretty fast for carrying her on your back for so long." Billy said. "And what's with those ears of yours?"

"Well, that's also a long story. You see-" Kagome started but was stopped by Inuyasha.

"It's nothing." Inuyasha interupted Kagome.

"Don't bother me if you don't wanna tel me anything. You can keep to yourselves." Billy said as he held up his hands as if surrendering. Then he went to his horse and pulled out a guitar.

"You play guitar?" Kagome asked as she looked at the guitar Billy held in his hands.

"A little. You wanna try it?" Billy asked as he passed the guitar to Kagome.

"I guess." Kaogme repied as she started to pick at the strings and started to sing a song she had learned a little while ago in her own time.

Got introduced to you by a friend
You were cute and all that, baby you set the trend
Yes you did oh
The next thing I know we're down at the cinema
We're sitting there, you said you love me
What's that about?

You're moving too fast, I don't understand you
I'm not ready yet, baby I can't pretend
No I can't
The best I can do is tell you to talk to me
It's possible, eventual
Love will find a way
Love will find a way...

Don't say you love me
You don't even know me
If you really want me
Then give me some time
Don't go there baby
Not before I'm ready
Don't say your heart's in a hurry
It's not like we're gonna get married
Give me, give me some time

Here's how I play, here's where you stand
Here's what to prove to get any further than where it's been
I'll make it clear, not gonna tell you twice
Take it slow, you keep pushing me
You're pushing me away
Pushing me away...

Don't say you love me
You don't even know me
If you really want me
Then give me some time
Don't go there baby
Not before I'm ready
Don't say your heart's in a hurry
It's not like we're gonna get married
Give me, give me some time

oooo, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
na, na, na, na, na, na
oooo, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Don't say you love me
You don't even know me baby...

Baby don't say love me, baby
Give me some time...

Don't say you love me
You don't even know me
If you really want me
Then give me some time
Don't go there baby
Not before I'm ready
Don't say your heart's in a hurry
It's not like we're gonna get married
Give me, give me some time

"You have a beautiful voice." Billy told Kagome. Then he looked from Inuyasha back to Kagome. "Are you two together? Or are you just travel companions?"

Inuyasha glared at Billy. He didn't want to say anything, he still was scared to tell Kagome how much he cared about her. He didn't even realize it, but he started to growl at Billy. he didn't even know what he was doing until Kagome waved her hand in fron of his face.

"Inuyasha! Earth to Dog Boy!" She exclaimed.

"Dog Boy?" Billy asked.

"Yeah. He's a dog demon." Kagome replied.

"A demon?" Billy asked, sounding alert as he reached for his gun, but not grabbing it, as if in position to shoot if Inuyasha made any sudden movements.

"No no!" Kagome exclaimed. "He's a good demon. He won't hurt us. You see, he's half human too-"

"Why are you telling him all this?" Inuyasha yelled.

"You guys really shouldn't yell. You could give away where we are to any of our enemies." Bily said as he eased up, moving his hand away from his gun.

"Whatever." Inuyasha said as he crossed his arms. "If they come anywhere near me, then I'll take care of 'em." Inuyasha said, even though he knew he could never kill a human. He just couldn't, whether he were demon or not. He felt bad enough when he killed those humans when he lost control of himself. He could barely stand that he was still alive. They might have been hurting his friends, but they were still humans.

"Good luck. But it would serve you well to get some sleep before moring comes." Billy said.

Kagome took out her sleeping bag and set it up. "Are you going to stand guard Inuyasha?" Kagome asked as she got comfortable.

"Yes." Inuyasha said curtly as he made himself comfortable, sitting Indian style.

"OK. Good-night." Kagome said before drifting off to sleep.

Inuyasha looked at her. She looked beautiful when she slept. He wished she wouldn't yell at him all the time, he hated when he made her mad or sad. He couldn't help it though. He was always doing things wrong.Maybe he could do something different for her. That might help her feel better.

AN- Hey! I know it took me long to update. Schools out though, and I'm done my SAT testings and all. So I no have more time to update. K? No that many people read this anyway. Plz R&R. Thankee!
