Sango and Miroku looked at Kagome. They were both thinking the same thing. SOMETHING had happened between Kagome and Sagaku to make Sagaku act the way he was and the only key to finding out the answer was Kagome. Just as Miroku was about to further interrogate Kagome, she pushed Sesshomaru out of her way and went to find Sagaku.

Kagome marched into the forest in hopes of finding the puzzling man. It seemed luck was on her side as she spotted him next to a creek.

"Hey Sagaku. Are you ok?" No answer. "It'll help if you talk about it. It always helps me." Still nothing. "You know you'll never get a girl if you keep acting like this."

"Shut up." Well Kagome wasn't expecting that as an answer, but it's better then nothing. Right? She sure hoped so.

"See what I mean? What do you think will happen when you tell any other girl to shut up?"

"They'd probably listen and leave me the hell alone." Sagaku turned to glare at Kagome, hoping she'd get the point that he wanted to be left alone. No such luck.

"Well whatever crawled up you ass and died is sure annoying. Don't worry I'll be here whenever you do decide to stop being a jerk." With that said Kagome grabbed her iPod out of her pocket and began to listen to music. Sagaku just stared into the water. All of a sudden he heard something. He looked at Kagome out of the corner of his eyes and noticed her singing.

Where is the moment we needed the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to grey
They tell me your passion's gone away
And I don't need no carryin' on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You're faking a smile with the coffee to go
You tell me your life's been way off line
You're falling to pieces everytime
And I don't need no carryin' on

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Well you need a blue sky holiday
The point is they laugh at what you say
And I don't need no carryin' on

You had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day

(Oh.. Holiday..)

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong
And I'm not wrong

So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You've seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Had a bad day
Had a bad day
Had a bad day
Had a bad day
Had a bad day

Kagome noticed that Sagaku was paying attention to her singing. She hoped that that song would get his attention. It seemed that the hard edge in his eyes also left. Kagome decided to see if she could get him to talk.

"Well how did you like your personal concert?"

"I have a feeling that you planned for me to like it whether I like it not. Am I right?"

"Maybe. Are you ready to talk yet?"

"Depends on what you wanna know."

"Well, who was that girl?"

"Her name was Tsuna. She's an acquaintance of mine. We never really got a long so I guess you could say she's more of an enemy."

"I kinda guessed that. Why did she irritate you so much?"

"She just brought up parts of my past that I really didn't want to relive. That and it bothered me that she could just take you so easily."

"You let Kagome get kidnapped." At the new voice both Kagome and Sagaku jumped.

"My God Sesshomaru, you should warn someone that you're there before speaking." Kagome said.

"I would have to speak to let people know I'm there and if people were more aware of their surroundings they would've noticed that I have been here for a while." Sagaku sent a half-hearted glare at Sesshomaru.

"Well I think I've had enough excitement for today. I'm gunna head back and go to sleep." With that said, Sagaku got up and went back to Keade's hut.

"You know you don't have to be such a kill joy all the time." Kagome said as she crossed her arms.

"I believe that it is time you should be going to bed also." Sesshomaru said.

"Kill joy!" Sesshomaru picked Kagome up and brought her back to Keade's hut to sleep.

------------------

It was late afternoon the next day and Sesshomaru had become Kagome's new shadow. The poor girl couldn't even hardly go to the bathroom without the Demon Lord going with her. She understood that Sesshomaru was worried since she WAS kidnapped yesterday, but come on this is ridiculous! They were going for a walk through the forest when Kagome finally snapped.

"Do you really HAVE to follow me? I can take care of myself ya know."

"That's why you were kidnapped yesterday right?"

"One time! Do you really have to bring that up? I can defend myself and you know it!"

"True."

"Then why are you following me?" She didn't receive an answer. "Sesshomaru? Hello? Are you gunna answer me?

"Perhaps I just wanted to spend time with you." Kagome stopped walking. She looked up at Sesshomaru in confusion.

"Are you serious?" Sesshomaru smirked.

"Am I never not serious?" Kagome blushed. Why was he looking at her like that?

"You never know, you could be kidding. It is possible. I think." Sesshomaru looked down at the blushing girl. He was trying to decide if he really wanted to do what his mind was telling him to do. After some careful consideration, Sesshomaru leaned down and kissed her.

"Still think I'm kidding?"
