Summary: Bankotsu, your average popular high school student, right? Wrong, he's also the leader of a family of assassins. He's just moved to a new city and is starting at a new high school with Jakotsu, but will this school be any different than the others with girls throwing themselves at him? Or, for the first time ever, will he be the one chasing after someone that makes him smile or his heart pound at the sight of her?

Author's Note: This is my first Bankotsu/Kagome fic, so please let me know what you think. But please don't be too incredibly harsh.

Disclaimer: I do not own Inu Yasha.


Bankotsu sat silently in his room, holding his precious Banryuu. Him and his brothers had just moved to a new school in order to hide. To everyone in the schools he had been at, he was the most popular boy there, but what they didn't know was that he was from a family of assassins. He was the youngest, but the head of that family. He lived with his brothers, Suikotsu, Renkotsu, Kyoukotsu, Genkotsu, Mukotsu, and his best friend and brother, Jakotsu. Out of the seven of them, he and Jakotsu were the only ones left going to school. Suikotsu was a businessman and Renkotsu was a private investigator, Kyoukotsu and Genkotsu were both lazy and didn't have jobs, and Mukotsu made poisons to sell on the black market.

Just then, there was a knock on the door. "Come in," he stated and the door flew open to reveal his brother, Jakotsu. He was always so happy and cheerful.

"Big Brother! We got our schedules!" Jakotsu said happily throwing the envelope to him. Bankotsu caught the envelope and opened it. Inside was information he needed for the next day, like his class schedule, locker number and combination.

"Isn't this great, Big Brother? We get to start at a new school again and you can become the most popular guy there!" Jakotsu cheered.

Bankotsu groaned. He hated being popular especially with all of the goofy high school girls. They annoyed him. There were times at his last school where it got so annoying that he almost killed a few of them.

"Jakotsu, what's the purpose of us going to school anyway? We make a decent living as it is with our jobs," Bankotsu asked.

"Remember? Suikotsu said that we needed to keep a low profile. We're both of schooling age so we need to act like others our age," Jakotsu reminded. Bankotsu groaned and picked up a rag to polish his Banryuu. "Bankotsu… Don't worry so much about the girls. Worry about remaining undercover."

Bankotsu nodded and Jakotsu left the room, leaving Bankotsu alone to get some needed rest.

Kagome ate breakfast as quickly as she possibly could before she heard the car horn in front of the house. "Kagome! Sesshomaru is here to pick you up!" her mother called from near the front door.

Kagome stopped eating and grabbed her book bag, running to the front door. "Bye, Mom! Have a good day!" Kagome said as she passed her and gave her a quick kiss on the cheek. She darted out the front door and saw her best friend, Sesshomaru, sitting in his black camaro with the top down. He had long silver hair and wore incredibly sexy sunglasses. She jumped in the car and smiled at him. "Hey!"

"Hey yourself," He stated in a cold tone. It was his trademark. He was one of the two most popular guys in school. Everyone wanted him, but stayed away because he was also the coldest person in school. The only person he treated nicely was Kagome and her friends. He didn't even treat his half-brother nearly as well as he treated her. Every girl in school was jealous of her for it. They had grown up together and she had worked his way into his frozen heart, slowly warming it up a bit. In fact, she was the only one to ever see him smile.

They drove down the street, listening to Kagome's choice of music. When they pulled up to the school, they saw two unfamiliar faces entering the gates. Sesshomaru caught sight of one and immediately sped up. "That one guy looks quite gay," Sesshomaru stated.

"So what if he is?" Kagome asked.

"He would just make things interesting," Sesshomaru said flatly.

"Sesshomaru, I'm sure he's a nice guy," Kagome told him.

"You're just too nice," Sesshomaru said as he parked the car in his spot and got out of the car. Kagome followed him into the school and was escorted to her locker, where they met up with a few of her friends, including Sesshomaru's younger half-brother, Inu Yasha.

"You bastard! You left without me!" Inu Yasha shouted loudly, his voice echoing through the halls.

"You would've made me late picking up Kagome. If you're not on time, then you can find your own way to get here, you stupid half-breed," Sesshomaru told him.

Inu Yasha growled angrily and was about to pounce on him, when Kagome's voice stopped him. "Inu Yasha, don't fight here in the halls. You don't want to get another detention, do you? It would be the fifth one this week," Kagome sighed as she closed the door to her locker and turned to her other friends. "Hey Sango. How's Kohaku doing?"

"He's doing better. The doctor said he should get his memory back soon. At least that's what we're hoping," Sango said. Her brother was recently in an accident and lost his memory. Sango had been torn up about it for weeks, but was becoming much more cheerful now that he's starting to recover.

Miroku, the black-haired young man with a small ponytail, draped his arm over Sango's shoulder and smiled. "Shall we all get to class before the bell rings and we get a detention from Yamamoto-sensei?" Miroku asked.

The others agreed and started towards their homerooms. Sango and Inu Yasha were in separate homerooms than Miroku, Kagome and Sesshomaru so they headed down different ends of the hallway. When Kagome got there, she realized she forgot a binder in her locker, which was vital to that class. She sighed and shook her head.

"What's wrong, Kagome-chan?" Miroku asked, noticing the look on her face.

"I forgot my binder. I gotta run back to my locker," Kagome said as she turned and darted out of the room.

"HURRY BACK!" he called after her, but she was already to far away to hear him.

Kagome darted down the hall as quickly as she could, skidding to a halt at her locker. She opened the locker, grabbing the binder and slamming it shut. However, when she slammed it shut, she accidentally slammed her finger the door, causing it to bounce and not shut. "OW!" Kagome exclaimed as she dropped her binder and getting papers everywhere.

"Whoa, are you ok?" someone said from behind her.


Kagome's a tad bit clutzy in this... hehehe...(sorry Kagome fans if you find that offensive)
