A/N – I know I said this was going to be a one-shot but I'm bored and I don't feel like working on my other fics or my school work. Anyway on with the show… oh and this might be a bit… graphic maybe? Not a lemon but a bit more than your average fluff.

Kagome's POV

"I love you too."

Did I really just hear that? This can't be real; it's just a dream, a very real feeling dream. But how I wish it were real. Tears start coursing down my cheeks again; it's just a dream, it's not real. The words run through my head like a mantra; just a dream, just a dream. So many times I've had this dream; that I would confess my feelings for him and he would tell me he felt the same way. But in the end I would always wake up. I push myself away from the dream Inuyasha, he would never apologise like that, and he would never be so open with me. He looks up, surprised.

"Kagome, what's wrong?" The concern in his voice cuts through the air. I can't bring myself to look at him.

"It's just a dream," I whisper quietly, but I know he heard me. I look up at him and he's looking at me, confused. Then realisation dawns on his face and he pulls me back to him. I feel safe in his arms, there's no Naraku, no Sesshomaru, and most of all, no Kikyo. He tilts my head, forcing me to look him in the eye.

"Does this feel like a dream?" He lowers his head for another kiss and I give in. I don't care if it's just a dream, if I wake up in the morning to find him being the same irritable Hanyou; it feels wonderful to have him like this. His lips meet mine and I don't even want to think about fighting this feeling, I don't want to think at all. He pulls me closer and I wind my arms around his neck. I never want this to end. But he pulls away for a moment.

"They'll look for us here," he grins in a slightly devilish way. He sweeps me off the ground, into his arms and flies off through the trees. After minutes of flying he lands in a small clearing near a little pond. He sets me down gently but his hands never leave my waist. I turn my back on him and gaze at the place he's brought me to. Sighing I lean back into his strong chest.

"So you like?" he whispers, his breath softly tickling my neck as he moves his lips lightly over the sensitive skin. I turn around and face him, one question burning in my throat.

"Inuyasha, what about Kikyo?" He stops moaning about my movement and looks at me.

"She's gone. She went to Hell. Alone."

You two always seemed to complex

For me to comprehend,

And in the end

That's what undid it all for you

"I'm sorry," I whisper, resting my hands on his arms that are still around my waist.

"Don't be. She's at peace and I can be with you. It's what we both wanted." He doesn't give me time to respond before he moves in for another kiss, soft this time but no less loving. I slide my hands up his arms, over his shoulders and start running my fingers through his hair. His arms tighten around my waist and he starts to pull me down to the ground. We lay on our sides facing each other, his hands moving softly up and down my back as I lose myself in his eyes.

"You didn't answer my question before, does this feel like a dream?" His eyes sparkle and his mouth curves into a gorgeous smile. I look at him for a moment before answering.

"Yes it feels like a dream. A dream come true."

A/N - aww how sweet. Anyway the italics are song lyrics, I thought that bit was applicable. Roses and Holly by Mild Ryan, I think it belongs to Pete coz he's the mushy one who wrote it. I'm gonna put the rest of the lyrics here coz I love this song:

Roses and Holly

Holly you sat under a bush of purple flowers,
Eating strawberries and drinking chocolate milk,
Rose came along, and you two seemed to talk for hours,
About anything, and everything that came to mind.

You two always seemed too complex,

for me to comprehend,
And in the end,

that's what undid it all for you.

You see,

Roses and Holly, this is your story,
You were asleep when I first sang this song,
Roses and Holly, you'll wake in the morning,
And each of you wonder, why you don't belong.

Rose you always sat alone in class,

never passed,
Hey, why was that?
No one ever saw what you were scribbling,
That got you in,

so much trouble at the end of math.

You always seemed too busy,

just nibbling on your pen,
To talk to anyone,

well apart from your friend.

Roses and Holly, this is your story,
You were asleep when I first sang this song,
Roses and Holly, you'll wake in the morning,
And each of you wonder, why you don't belong.

She comes down and she creeps me with a frown

I look round trying oh so hard to understand

Rain falls down, oh

Roses and Holly, this is your story,
You were asleep when I first sang this song,
Roses and Holly, you'll wake in the morning,
And each of you wonder, why you don't belong.

anyway hope you enjoyed, the song and the fic. R&R if you want.

ta darlings
