No character I use from Inuyasha belongs to me.
"Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived."
- Captain Jean-Luc Picard
Has it really been over a month already?
Kagome smiled and stretched her arms. Sesshoumaru had become more talkative after they started dating and was slowly starting to express his emotions rather than holding them in. They had gotten closer.
Kagome leaned back on the bench she was sitting on and looked at the sky. It seemed bluer today, and clearer. She closed her eyes and took in a good amount of fresh air. She had always loved the smell of nature. She wondered why life seemed so short now, not having enough time to do everything she wanted to.
Her thoughts were cut short when she felt a tap on her shoulder. She grinned and quickly caught the fingers before they could leave her shoulder. Kagome tilted her head back to look at the owner. "Well, good morning to you, too."
Sesshoumaru sighed and sat beside Kagome. "... My hand?"
Kagome giggled, and held onto his hand with both of hers. "It's my prisoner now."
Sesshoumaru and Kagome had both quit working at the café and now worked together in TK Inc. Things had been going well, and every day was a day to look forward to.
"That's the watch I gave you on Christmas! Well... to be exact, the day after Christmas."
Sesshoumaru smiled one of his rare smiles. Although it wasn't the first time Kagome had seen his smile, it still surprised her. His smile would make her whole day better without him even knowing it.
"Say... let's go somewhere today." Kagome said.
"Oh, I don't know, somewhere different?"
Sesshoumaru seemed to sigh a lot when he was with Kagome. "I can't win against you. Let's go."
Kagome smiled joyfully. She tugged on his arm and dragged him over to the subway station. "Ice skating it is!"
Three hours later, Kagome plopped down in a chair, exhausted.
"Had enough?" Sesshoumaru asked, amused.
"Hey, you didn't skate at all!" Kagome pouted.
"You expect me, a business man, to skate?" he asked, disbelief clear in his voice.
"Fine... then as punishment... buy me a cup of hot chocolate!"
"Alright," Sesshoumaru sighed, getting up from his seat.
As Kagome was reveling in her victory, a stranger took Sesshoumaru's seat only a moment after he had left. "Hello, miss."
"Can I help you?" Kagome frowned. How rude, he just took Sesshoumaru's seat!
"Are you with someone?"
"She's with me," Sesshoumaru had returned without the hot chocolate, but Kagome was still relieved to see him.
"There's your answer!" she said, waving as the stranger left.
"You. Where's my hot chocolate?" Kagome asked, feigning anger.
Sesshoumaru saw right through it.
"How about another treat?"
"Hm?" Kagome was curious.
And before she knew it, Sesshoumaru had kissed her.
Kagome blinked. "H-hey!"
When Sesshoumaru turned to leave, Kagome took that chance to jump on him. "Hey, hey. Let's end the two month agreement here, okay?"
"'Let's get married', is what I'm saying." Kagome, still on Sesshoumaru's back, put her head on his shoulder.
After a moment of silence, Sesshoumaru chuckled. "Hm... I may have to think about it."
Kagome laughed. "Let's go home, Sesshou."
Thank you for all your support. If it wasn't for you guys, I don't think I would have been able to complete this story. Thanks!
