Predicaments

So she was pregnant...

The doctor's positive test results in front of her were enough. She didn't need anymore proof.

It's funny...isn't it? How life-altering a piece of paper can be?

And of course there was no doubt to who the father must be.

Inuyasha Takahashi...

They'd been best friends since they were eight years old.

So this is how far we've come?

For eight years they had been together...as often as they could. Only as friends, of course...up until two months ago.

It must have been at Kouga's party.

They had been drinking, for a start. Then there was the dancing, and it was only natural that they would dance together...besides even if Kagome could dance with another guy, Inuyasha would have killed him before he could put his hands on her.

He's always so damned possessive...

And then again, there was the kissing. Which was actually quite normal, but to the extent of a quick kiss on the cheek...occasionally on the lips.

I should just blame the whole incident on that blasted alchohol.

And the worst of it all was that she had wanted it...and thought that he wanted it, too.

I can't let him find out...not yet...it'll kill him...

Speaking of which, how the hell was she supposed to deal with this!

Oh Gods...what will Mom say!

She looked down at the ends of her fingernails...finally noticing that she had bitten them raw...

That's the least of my troubles...

So...she didn't know what to do...


She hasn't called.

"The party..."

Well what do you expect her to do after what happened!

"So what! It wasn't that big of a deal!"

He always did like to argue with himself...

Okay...so maybe it was a big deal...she probably hates me...we took it too far...

...he could always blaim it on the alchohol...

But...this isn't like Kagome...she's the type of person to talk about her problems

"And I'm not?"

Not exactly...you always did like to hold things in

I guess I do..."

Damn it! I need to talk to her!

He hadn't talked to her in three weeks, and even then the conversation had been limited.

She's always coming up with excuses...

"She's seeing somebody else isn't she!"

I SWEAR I'LL KILL THE BASTARD!

He always was a bit possessive.

"Doesn't she know I love her!"

No...Kagome wouldn't do that...

He walked to the counter and poured himself another cup of much deserved coffee.

Just...call her...

Walking towards the phone, he shot a fast look at the picture of Kagome and him at the Freshman Formal.

So this is how far we've come?

"She's always been worth it you idiot...you don't even need to think about it"

The phone was ringing now...any second now...

I got the answering machine...

And for the first time...

He didn't know what to do.


So...there it is...kind of out of the blue...just playing snood and poof...so anyway...i hope you enjoyed it...I find the way I write incredibly annoying and a habit increasingly hard to grow out of...but thats the way it is, eh?

Next chapter coming soon!
