If we kissed?

Chapter Seven

AN: This was another victim of the hard drive crash, but at least the chapter was grammatically saved by DarkCrystalis, my new beta.
DarkCrystalis: Haha, I wonder who added that in:)

Rin arrived at the Lunatic. Good; both Ken and Inuyasha were there, but Bankotsu seemed to be missing. The second level of her plan was finally forming! She now had her smoke screen for moving her things out. It was a much better plan then claiming to hate everything and then moving it out of the building. Piss off Sesshomaru, then piss off Ken; it was a good day.

"Rin," Inuyasha growled/greeted and stood to his feet. Kenji was really pissing him with his demands.

"Sit boy," Kenji said sternly.

"That's it!" Inuyasha snapped and moved to pounce on the blue haired fox when Rin stepped between them.

"Give it a rest, Ken. It's only 11am and he's already trying to kill you."

"Only for you, Vixen," he smiled before turning towards Inuyasha. "Same time tomorrow, Inuyasha."

"Yeah, what the hell ever," he replied, crossing his arms. Already he had been all over the damn country (literally); running errands, getting dry cleaning and other menial tasks. That stupid penalty was what had him really heated. There was no way he was going to let the fox lead him around on his hands and knees wearing a dog collar and leash.

"You still have to complete the penalty."

"It ain't happening," Inuyasha looked at Rin. "Why were you tracking us?"

"I was looking for Ken." She smiled and looked at said person. "I need a favor, favorite brother of mine. I've decided that I want to know more about the music biz."

A pale blue eyebrow rose in curiosity. "What brought this on?"

"Sesshomaru," Rin answered, smiling. "Something he said hit me like a glass of fresh water."

Inuyasha snorted rudely and then leaned against the wall. "What did he do to piss you off?"

"Whatever it was, it must have been good." Kenji observed. "So, you'll punish him by becoming his intern?"

"And moving in with Lady," she added.

Kenji's face furrowed for a moment just before he pulled her into an embrace. "How did you get to be so ruthless?" he teased. "I love it."

Rin smirked. "I thought you might."

Inuyasha shook his head; Sesshomaru was going to be in hell. At least he would be amused, but… "What's Bankotsu got to say about it?"

"Rin doesn't answer to him," Kenji replied as his sister pulled away. "My Vixen is an independent woman and with this type of mischief there are always special allowances."

"You're such a freak, Kenji. You won't let Rin so much as breathe next to a guy, but you'll let her live with Sesshomaru, someone that she would drop her panties for quicker than some would spit?"

Rin's eyes narrowed before smacking Inuyasha in the back of the head. "Idiot. We had this discussion. I am not interested!" She moved away from the both of them. "You are such a jerk, Inuyasha," she said before her departure.

Ken shook his head. "Inuyasha, you have no class and now you're in the doghouse again. I shall have to exercise my vengeance for her tomorrow. Sleep well." Inuyasha rolled his eyes, then walked off towards his office. He fumbled with his cell phone as he walked and hit the speed dial. "You know that came out wrong, right?"


"Listen to me, Rin. You pissing off Sesshomaru is cool, just don't get burned. He isn't going to be easy. Now I'm going to shut up before I say something else wrong."

"Thanks. Bye." She ended the phone call as she parked her bike. "I remember when he did not have to be so careful around me." She grabbed her bag and her alarm chirped. She did not bother to park her bike some blocks away from her destination. She was pretty sure Kenji knew where Bank lived and it would be the first place he would look when hunting for her. Besides, it would mess with his mind if her saw her bike parked in the lot of her boyfriend's building while trying to figure out how she was tricking him. Plain sight was always best.

A smile crossed her face as she got into the elevator. Inuyasha was paranoid. Bank would love that she was pestering Sesshomaru, especially if he deserved it. The elevator doors dinged and she stepped into the hallway. She raised her knuckles to door when it opened.

"Thanks, Bankotsu, I'll bring it back tomorrow… who are you?"

Rin blinked several times. The person in front of her looked like a beautiful woman, but had a man's voice. "I'm Rin, Bank's girlfriend."

Dark eyes roved over her once before dismissing. "You can't be. Rin is supposed to be some hot shot designer who wears the latest and…"

"I've had a bad day," she replied, gesturing to her appearance. She was still without her jacket and looked ruffled from the day's stresses.

"Honey, no day's that bad."

Rin narrowed her eyes before pulling out a leaf from her lapel. Always be prepared! She placed it on her forehead just before a wall of foxfire surrounded her. Jakotsu jumped back in surprise and Rin stood in front of him wearing low rise jeans and a triangular halter top that said 'spicy.' "Is this better?"

"What the hell are you doing, Jak?" Bank called from behind.

Rin peaked over Jakotsu's head and saw Bankotsu in nothing but a towel. "Interesting." Now she was very curious. He looked good and it was stirring up her emotions.

"Rin!" he greeted, pushing Jakotsu out of the way.

"Bankotsu," she greeted lowly and asked, "Who's your friend?"

"My cousin Jakotsu who is leaving… now!" He pushed Jakotsu all the way out of the doorway and pulled Rin into the apartment.

"Nice meeting you," he said to the door as it shut in his face. "Looks like someone is going to get it." He walked down the hall.

"Did I come at a bad time?"

Considering what he thought about in the shower… "No, perfect." He kissed her. "How was your first day?" Better to play it safe.

"Ah, that's what I came to see you about. I am going to be Sesshomaru's intern and move in with Lady on the weekdays."


"Yes," she nodded, "a little payback is in order."

Relief settled over him. Rin was up to her pranks again. "What did he do?"

"You know, I don't want to talk about it right now. I would just get pissed off again and rant," she answered. "I don't want to waste this opportunity." She kissed him only to find her back up against the wall rather quickly. She smiled at his zeal then became serious. "I like you Bank, a lot, and I…" her sentence trailed as he kissed her deeply. She succumbed to the kiss. The soft sound of his towel hitting the floor and him pressing against her raised a flush to her cheeks. Intimacy… it was nice…but it was too fast. As much as her behavior said otherwise and it pissed her off, she was not easy. She wanted to love the person she shared her body with.

"Damn it," she sighed.

"What's wrong?" he asked kissed her neck. Eager fingers stole under her shirt.

"Bank, we have to stop."

"No we don't," he urged. He had been waiting for such an opportunity for a year and he was just a few scraps of clothing from making her his.

"Yes, we do," she pushed him away and averted her eyes…. But not before peeking and she then cursed herself even more.

"Is it your brother?"

Rin shook her head. Great, now she was a cock tease. "Cock blocked by my own damn self. It can't get any worse." She held herself. "It's all too fast. We've been together a couple of weeks…"

"What happened to wasted opportunity?" he asked, still not putting on his towel.

Her cheeks reddened. "I talk before I think," she said softly.

"Are you playing with me?"

Brown eyes widened. "No! I…" Okay she looked dumb and stupid. She knew the finer points of flirting, but Kenji kept her from following through. "I'm just not ready."

"You seem ready to me."

The Rin of last year would've cried at this point. Loss of Inuyasha, Sesshomaru's arrogance, and every other thing that ever pissed her off about men fueled her anger. "Well I'm not. I'm a virgin, not a whore. I need to be in love. I thought you'd understand that but you're… you're just like every other bastard I've come across."

"Like every other bastard but Sesshomaru?"

"This is between you and me," she growled. "I don't have to deal with this. Go to hell Bankotsu."

"You first, Rin," he spat.

A swirl of blue fire swirled around Rin in her anger. She had to leave before she killed him. It would be too easy in this state of mind and Kenji would have to explain. She could take care of her own mess.

Bankotsu cursed under his breath as he stalked into his bedroom. This did not go like he fantasized a few seconds ago. Why did she have to be so difficult? He ran his hands though his hair and started to pace when he paused. What just happened? Was that a fight or a break up?

"Shit," he cursed, throwing on some clothes. "What am I doing? I'll never catch her…" He dived on his bed, looking for his phone. After finally finding it, he pushed the buttons anxiously while cursing his foul temper and fast mouth.

"Rin," he said into the phone, only to be met with silence, then a click. He hit redial and her phone went to voice mail immediately. Bank tossed the phone away from him and seethed for a moment before jumping off the bed. He had to be at work soon. He would let Rin cool off then try again.


Sesshomaru leafed through his paperwork; Kagura's party had been a success. The promotions director was quite eager to play her music and already reported receiving hundreds of calls and e-mails asking about the CD. This was just one radio station; soon others would get wind and would be playing as well.

"You look pleased with yourself," Kenji smirked, entering the room. "Kagura must be doing well.'

"TYRS says she is in hot demand," he replied.

"Great! That means you'll have plenty for your intern to do."

"Intern?" Kenji nodded and Sesshomaru went back to work. "Rin."

"Yep. What did you do?" Kenji asked. "You know she has a nasty temper."

"Her lack of control is not my concern," he replied.

"Vixen is not going to be easily broken, Sess," Kenji warned. "As your partner and best friend, I warn you. As a spectator, I can't wait for the fireworks."

"You are incorrigible."

"And you are in trouble," Kenji chuckled then left the room. "Don't say that I didn't warn you."

Sesshomaru's eyes narrowed. He was not worried about Rin's wrath, but he was not in the mood to be annoyed. This morning's antics were immature and unlike him. Stooping to her level was not going to be the way to deal with her. He would have to come up with something.

To be continued…
