Disclaimer: I do not own InuYasha

Chapter One: The New Girl


The school bell rang signaling for us to head towards our classes before we're late. I personal didn't care if I went to school or not. It's not like I really needed an education when no one ever pays attention to me.

"InuYasha!" I sighed as Mr. Hikurai shouted my name from across the campus.

"Bloody people," I growled under my breath as I walked towards the slightly purple faced 4'3" man known as the principal at Tokuma High.

"InuYasha, I expect first-rate behavior and grades from you this year. I only wish that you act more like your brother then the runt you are," Hikurai snarled in disgust at me, " and take off that hood of yours mister. I will not tolerate such disrespect in my school."

Hikurai turned suddenly and stormed into the school like he was a 300 pimp. I chuckled at the thought. I jumped when I felt someone touch my arm. I grabbed the person's hand and pulled them in front of me.

My jaw nearly dropped as I stared at a cute dark headed girl. "Oh…sorry. I didn't mean…sorry," I stammered as I released the girl's arm.

"It's okay. It was my fault. I was going to ask you if you knew where room 125 is," the girl asked as she blushed slightly.

I tilted my head down to hide my own red cheeks. "That's my first class, so I can personally deliver you," I mumbled and stared at my black shoes my adopted mother had gotten me.

"Really? That's cool. I'm Kagome," she said happily and stuck her hand under my nose.

I looked up at her then at her hand. I slid my hand into hers and shook it harder then I attended to.

"InuYasha," I said as I stared at her suspiciously.

"I'm new here and I don't know my way around, but I was hoping you could help me out," she said and bit her bottom lip nervously.

I sighed, how could I say no to a girl like her? She's absolutely beautiful. "Sure, why not. I have nothing better to do," I said dully.

The girl jumped up and down. "Thank you so much," she squealed and bowed her head slightly.

"My pleasure," I mumbled and started walking towards our first period class.

"InuYasha…that's a strange name," the girl murmured to herself.

"Well, Kagome a strange name, too, if you ask me," I snapped back.

I glanced over to my right and saw her hand her head and bite her lower lip again. Damn. I can never do anything right can I. I always have to jump into defensive mode and bite people's heads off.

"I'm sorry. I wasn't making fun of your name," she said sadly as she continued to stare at the floor.

"No. I'm the one that should be sorry. I'm not used to having someone to talk to," I said and glanced over at her.

She looked over at me with a confused look in her eyes. I sighed. "Most people try to avoid me because of my ears," I explained.

"Why?" she asked as I watched her glance up at my ears.

I flattened my ears against my head and frowned. "Their not normal," I muttered.

"No, but they're cute," she said and grabbed my right ear and stroked it gently.

I stopped walking and closed my eyes. oh dear god. What is she doing to me? It feels like my body's on fire and my lower region is aflame.

"Haven't you learned not to pet wild dogs? They can bite back sometimes," I said in a husky voice as I opened my eyes and looked at her.

She smiled and dropped her hand. "Sorry. I couldn't resist it any longer. I don't know why they avoid you. I think your ears are adorable," she said and reached up and stroked it again.

I kept my eyes open this time and groaned. "Thanks. That makes me sound so manly," I said bleakly.

She laughed and dropped her hand to her side and refrained from reaching up and grabbing my ear again. I shook my head and looked at the clock on the wall.

"Just to let you know, you shouldn't be catch touching my ears like that if you want to popular," I said miserably.

She reached up again, but I caught her hand and shook my head. "I wish you wouldn't. You could get in trouble. I have more enemies then you can shake a stick at," I said glumly.

I glanced at the clock again and sighed. "We should hurry. We don't want to be late for the first day of school," I said and started walking again.

She walked beside me in silence until we got to the classroom door. "InuYasha, would it be…do you…what lunch do you have?" she stumbled.

"I have B lunch, why?" I asked, not really wanting to tell her what period I had my lunch.

She smiled and nodded. "Thanks for showing me to class. We should go in now," she said and opened the classroom door.

I followed her silently and took my seat at the back of the room in the very corner. I sat down and watched as a girl named Sango walked into the classroom. I groaned and looked away quickly. Sango and I didn't get along because I had kicked her boyfriend's ass in the eighth grade, Moriku.

I took out a pencil from my pocket and began to drum it against the desk. I clenched my jaw as I smelt the disgusting smell of a rotten wolf, Koga. I looked up and saw Koga slide in the seat in front of me. I swallowed down my growl and looked at my pencil again.

Koga, unlike me, was popular with the ladies. The guys considered him their all mighty leader. He, unlike me, had a tail. He was weirder looking then I was. I had ears, he had a big bushy tail that wasn't hard to miss.

"InuYasha?" I recognized the sweet sound of Kagome's voice and looked up to see her standing next to my desk.

"People can see," I mumbled and looked away from her.

"So. Let them see," she said rather harshly.

I looked up, slightly alarmed and blinked. "What?" I asked stupidly. I had heard her perfectly, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't dreaming it up.

"I never asked for popularity, and I never will. So they can see all they like," she said and sat at the desk next to me.

The bell suddenly rang, silencing any other questions I wanted to ask.
