Summary- Sango Tacchi has always had a tough life. It's normal for her. When the normal pressure starts to get harder, will she handle herself any differently than before? The next problem is keeping her best friend from realizing her methods of coping... Warning, I used song lyrics!

I own all the poems at the beginning of the chapters. Those are my mind's rotton creations.

Song- Dirty Little Secret (All-American Rejects)


About to Break
Chapter Eleven- Terms and Conditions Apply


Happiness can actually be
Something that's meant for you and me
But, it's hard to discover the exact way
To make that happiness never go away

Sango relaxed in Inuyasha's embrace and watched her brother. She should be upset that he wasn't healthy. But, she was actually content. She didn't want him to be in pain. She didn't want Kohaku to know the feeling of the things she had gone through.

Kohaku was safe in his state. No one could hurt him. His body was unable to register the sensation of pain. He was safer than she could ever make him.

Sango left and told the doctors that the kitten was just as much a visitor as she was. Whenever she was to visit him, the kitten would come with her, no matter what anyone else said. If there was too much opposition, Sango said that her kitten would be glad to change into demon form and demand respect. All the doctors and nurses reluctantly agreed.

Let me know that I've done wrong
When I've known this all along
I go around a time or two
Just to waste my time with you

"Sango! Get your lazy butt over here!" Inuyasha shouted so people across the mall could hear. Sango looked at him with an innocent grin.

"How do you know my butt is lazy?" She asked. Kouga grinned and Kagome started giggling.

"You don't even want to know." Inuyasha shot back. Sango put a hand over her chest and pretended to be shocked by his words.

"Why, Inuyasha. What are you implying?" She asked. Inuyasha rolled his eyes then picked up his slushie. It wasn't slush anymore, unfortunately. It had turned into some form of sugary syrup.

I'll keep you my dirty little secret
(Dirty little secret)
Don't tell anyone or you'll be just another regret
(Just another regret, hope that you can keep it)
My dirty little secret
Who has to know

"Sounds like you two like each other." Kouga pointed out. Kagome smiled as the two looked at her.

"I didn't even mention to him that I was gonna hook you two up." Kagome admitted with her hands in the air.

"You were going to hook us up?" Sango asked.

"Yep. I decided that I'd do it when Inuyasha skipped school to make sure that you were okay in the hospital." Kagome said with an affirmative nod.

"And why didn't you elect to tell us this?" Sango asked curiously.

"Well… It's hard to hook people up if they know about it." She explained.

"I have news for you, Kagome." Inuyasha began. Kagome looked at him innocently and blinked. Kouga's grip on her waist tightened and she shifted her seat on his lap.

When we live such fragile lives
It's the best way we survive
I go around a time or two
Just to waste my time with you

"Sango and I were a couple after Kohaku went into the hospital." Inuyasha told her.

"So… I didn't have to do anything?"

"Nope." Sango said with a grin.

"I was wondering why you two seemed a bit closer than usual." Kagome said with a smart edge to her voice.

"Inuyasha, you know that there's a problem with your relationship." Kouga said. Everyone looked at him.

"How do you figure?" Sango asked.

"Well, Inuyasha likes being in control for various reasons."

"Sex being one of them." Kagome whispered.

"True." Kouga said. Inuyasha blushed. Sango didn't have the demon hearing, so she wasn't able to tell what had been said.

"Inuyasha, you like to be in control. You're not going to get that out of Sango. She'll beat the shit out of you. She'll be in control all the time. You'll be the stay-at-home parent." Kouga said. Inuyasha looked at Sango and gave her his empty cup.

"Will you throw this away for me?" He asked.

"Sure thing." Sango got up and walked away without complaint. Inuyasha watched as she swayed her hips seductively and made an inaudible curse.

"I know the exact pain you're feeling." Kouga told him. Inuyasha looked up to see Kagome shifting her seat once more. Kouga gently put her in the seat next to him and Inuyasha almost started laughing.

"I wasn't getting that." He said. Sango walked back up and sat down next to Inuyasha.

My dirty little secret
Dirty little secret
Dirty little secret

"Hey, you guys. I'm going to copy Miroku. I'll see you at school." Inuyasha said. Kouga nodded then tossed Inuyasha something. He caught it then looked at Kouga in question. Why had he given him a roll of quarters?

"Just in case your ego is too big to match something else." He said.

"Thought you needed them." Inuyasha pointed out.

"No… I don't need them. Do you?" Kouga asked. Inuyasha hugged Sango's waist close to his own and shook his head.

"Nope. No reason that I'll need 'em." He told Kouga. Inuyasha walked away, hand in hand with Sango. He took the roll of quarters Kouga had given him and gave it to Sango.

"What's this for?" She asked.

"Consider it an ego-booster from Kouga." He said. She looked back at Kouga, who was smiling. She threw the roll of quarters at him then grinned when it hit his head.

"I'm a girl. I don't need that kind of ego booster. They have padded bras." She said jokingly. Inuyasha looked at her and she shook her head.

"No, Inuyasha. That's not true." She told him. He nodded his head then went to a less-populated area in the mall.

"Before we get too far into this relationship, I have some terms and conditions I need you to follow." Inuyasha said slowly. He grasped both of Sango's hands and held them in his.

"I want you to promise me that if you ever have problems, you'll come to me before you cut yourself. I don't care who you go to, even. Just don't turn towards sharp objects." Inuyasha pleaded.

"I agree to those terms." Sango said. She leaned into Inuyasha's body and gave him a deep kiss. Inuyasha hugged her waist and grinned.

My dirty little secret
Dirty little secret

"You know…" He trailed off as Sango realized what he had been talking about.

"Yes, I do know… And I don't mind. Just… Somewhere without people looking." She said. Inuyasha grinned and kissed her again.

Who has to know?
Who has to know?


About to Break is finished! Thank you to all my readers! I appreciate you so much! I love you even more if you reviewed!

Originally, I was going to insert an epilogue into the end. But, I decided not to. I just don't have the inspiration to create it right now.


This chapter was very sexual. So, if you don't understand some of the stuff that happened, think like Miroku.

If you were wondering what happened to Miroku, he went off to make out with the girl he had gone chasing after. Perhaps she'll bear him a child… Tee hee.

I will continue to work on stories. I have a lot that I'm going to be working on and you guys get to read them as soon as I'm done!
