I thought about this, and typed it up, hope it turned out alright!

Kagome relaxed in her sleeping bag, the fire slowly dying. The rest of her companions had fallen asleep a while ago, and she still wasn't tired. Inuyasha had left for the night, probably to visit Kikyo again, but it didn't bother her anymore. She didn't feel the same way as she did when they first met, just a fleeting schoolgirl crush. Though she still liked to play with his ears.

Miroku and Sango were sleeping on the opposite side of the fire, and she could see that Miroku's hand was wandering, even in his sleep. He would get a rude wake-up call in the morning. Sango was curled up next to Kirara, a two-tailed demon cat that traveled with them. Shippou, her adopted kitsune cub, was asleep next to Kagome, tail twitching along with a dream he was having.

A noise in the forest grabbed Kagome's attention, and she got up, making sure not to wake up anyone. She slipped on shoes and went into the forest, catching a glimpse of silver.


Youko was out, getting a midnight snack. He didn't know what compelled him to come all the way out here, but he listened to his instincts, and did so anyway. After traveling a few miles, he caught scent of a small camp of people, a half demon, three humans, and two demons. He took a closer look, to see most of the camp asleep, and the half demon missing. There was one woman awake, and she was beautiful. Long raven hair framed a pale heart shaped face, with deep set blue-grey eyes. She was wearing the strangest clothes, a pair of unknown material pants and a shirt with buttons on the front holding it together.

He continued to watch them woman as she got up, and walked over to a strange sleeping mat. She laid in it for a while, until he decided to leave. He accidentally stepped on a loose branch, snapping it and it echoed through the small clearing. He froze, and watched the girl get up. He smirked as an idea came to his mind. He started to leave, letting the girl see him a few times to keep her on the right path.

Lazy yellow moon comin' up tonite,

Shinin' thru the trees,

Crickets are singin' and lightning bugs

Are floatin on the breeze

Baby get ready...

Kagome kept getting glimpses of a silver being, and had the deep desire to follow it. Curiousity overrode logic, which was telling her that she was probably following something that would lead to her death. She reached a small clearing, which ran a clear river, long green grass which danced in the wind and dotted with flowers.

In the center of the clearing stood a tall, majestic, figure. Long silver hair that reached his long tails, ears that swiveled at each sound, a fang that showed in the confident smirk that he wore, claws that glistened in the moonlight, and deep golden eyes that shown with an unknown emotion to her.

Across the field where the creek turns back by the ole stump road

I'm gonna take you to a special place that nobody knows

Baby get ready...

"Who are you?" Kagome asked, and was shocked at how loud her voice seemed in the clearing. Youko's thought was 'How beautiful, her voice…' before answering the question in his deep, seductive voice.

"Youko, Youko Kurama. And who might you be?"

"Kagome Higurashi."

"Come closer, I don't bite." Youko said smoothly, making Kagome, for some odd reason, blush lightly. She stepped into the clearing, and moved closer to Youko. His eyes took her in like water, and he sat down near the river bank. Kagome sat next to him.

They talked for a while, Kagome feeling like an opened dam. She told him of where she came from, how she got here, about her companions, and the burden that she had to carry. Youko told her of his childhood, how he became a thief, some of his close calls, his partner Kuronue, and why he came out tonight. By the time they finished, the moon was high in the sky, and illuminated the clearing.

They lay back after Youko caught some fish, teaching Kagome how to fish them also. Kagome's head rested on Youko's shoulder comfortably. They were looking at the stars, Youko telling some old Kitsune tales about the stars and constellations.

You and me going fishing in the dark,

Lying on our backs and counting the stars

Where the cool grass grows.

Youko looked down at the sleeping form of Kagome, and couldn't resist as he stared at her pale rose lips. He leaned down, and covered her lips with his own, sufficiently waking Kagome.

Down by the river in the full moon light,

We'll be fallin' in love in the middle of the night

Just movin' slow...

Kagome moaned softly, returning the kiss, as Youko scooped her up and stood. Breaking the kiss, he gave hera few more short kisses, before whispering in her ear, "I have to take you back now, before you companions start to worry."

"Will I see you again?" She asked, and Youko gave her the same smirk that she saw when she first entered the clearing.

"Of course."

Stayin' the whole night thru, feels so good to be with you...


Winter passed, and the only one who knew she had ever left was her son. She told him what had happened, and told him to keep it a secret. The others knew something was up, as Kagome always looked into the trees, as though searching for someone, and always seemed distracted. They thought it was because of Inuyasha, who had openly announced his mating to Kikyo. They couldn't be farther from the truth.

She hadn't seen Youko since the first night, and wondered if she had been played with by him. Did he really want to see her again? She knew in her heart that he did, but it was hard to believe as time went on, until one day, they reached a village. Miroku got them a place at the richest and biggest house on the village, and all of them got comfortable. Inuyasha was dead to the world, as was Miroku, Kirara, Sango, and Shippou.

When she heard someone breaking into the mansion, she got worried, until she saw a glimpse of silver.

Spring is almost over and the summer's come

And the days are gettin' long

Waited all winter for the time to be right, just to take you along

Baby get ready...

"Kagome?" A smooth, deep voice whispered, and Kagome heart jumped. He hadn't lied to her; he did want to see her again!

"Youko!" She exclaimed quietly, getting out of her sleeping bag to throw herself into the arms of Youko. Youko held her close, taking in her scent and sighing contently. He had waited all winter to track her scent down, and he had been following it the past week. He had missed her, even if they had met for only a night, he was already in love.

"Where have you been? I thought…" Kagome trailed off, holding back tears.

"I couldn't track you in the snow, it covered your scents. And I've been busy." Youko pulled out a small ring, with a sea grey jewel set into it.

"It reminded me of your eyes."

Kagome took the ring, and slid it onto her finger. It was a perfect fit.

"Come, let's go," Youko took her into his arms, and leapt through the mansion, out of an open window and down into the forest. Kagome curled into him, resting her head on his shoulder as the scenery passed by. When they stopped, she noticed she was back in the same clearing as where they met.

"Come, let's fish."

And it don't matter if we sit forever and the fish don't bite

Jump in the river and cool ourselves from the heat of the night

Baby get ready...

They were swimming in the river, Kagome's pajamas clinging to her wet form. Youko smirked, and walked behind her, grabbing her into a hug.

"You look beautiful…" He whispered into her ear, making Kagome blush.

Kagome couldn't respond, and Youko leaned over the top of her and sealed her lips into a deep heated kiss. She responded after a moment of shock, and when Youko's tongue ran over her lips, she gasped in surprise. Youko searched the cavern of her mouth with his tongue, taking in her taste, and relishing it. No demon, or human, had tasted as good as she had. And her scent, it was enough to drive any man insane.

She turned around and placed her hands onto his chest, letting herself lean into the kiss, the heat of the night and the heat of their passion maing her head swin, they finally broke for air, and dove back in, forgetting all about their fishing.

You and me going fishing in the dark,

Lying on our backs and counting the stars

Where the cool grass grows.

They moved back to shore, holding each other and watching the stars. Kagome gasped as a shooting star shot by. She made a wish, closing her eyes and concentrating hard. 'I wish we could stay like this forever…'

Down by the river in the full moon light,

We'll be fallin' in love in the middle of the night

Just movin' slow...

Kagome fell asleep, soon followed by Youko.

Stayin' the whole night thru, feels so good to be with you...


Kagome's companions woke up the next morning, noticing right off that something wasn't right. Shippou was up, a huge smirk on his face. Usually Shippou was the last to wake, and didn't ever seem this active in the morning. When Inuyasha woke up, he noticed that an unfamiliar scent was in the room, and that Kagome was missing.

"Where's Kagome?" Inuyasha asked, and Shippou smiled.

"I promised Mama I woudn't tell."

"Why you little runt!"

Inuaysha bopped Shippou on the head and Shippou whined, but still didn't tell. Sango and Kirara watched all this, and Miroku made a pass at Sango, but got hit over the head with the boomerang.

Kagome walked back into the room later that morning, damp and panting.

"Where were you!" They all asked, except for Shippou. Sharing a special glace with her son, she just smiled and replied,
