Did the story flow together? I NEED your imput. I CRAVE IT! Got an idea about the next chapter? Tell me, you might actually see it. JUST LET ME KNOW!!! please
Thanks bunches to those who have already reviewed.
p.s. I do not own Inuyasha
"Inuyasha, can we stop Now?" Shippo whined from his perch on Kagome's shoulder.
Inuyasha continued walking, not answering the kitsune but mumbling inaudibly under his breath.
"Come on Inuyasha! We've been walking since DAWN!" Kagome said.
"Without a break!" She continued
"It's almost dark!"
He swung around, "WHAT!?"
"We're tired. . . and my feet hurt." She said stomping her foot for emphasis.
He leaned to the left and looked past her, "You too?" He asked the couple behind her.
"Well, yeah. It is getting late, and like she said we haven't stopped all day." Sango said.
"You've been skirting around every village we passed today." Miroku added.
"Fine." Inuyasha said in defeat. " There is a village just over that hill." He once again began to walk.
They topped the hill and looked down over what seemed to be a very prosperous village. They walked down main street, passing all of the street vendors as they called out to them.
Suddenly, Inuyasha stopped. They all looked up and found themselves in front of an inn. "Monk." Inuyasha said simply.
"That's my cue." Miroku said straightening his robes and stepping towards the door.
Half an hour later the girls, Shippo and Kirara were in one room bathing, while the guys were in another.
After bathing they all met up in another room, where they would be sleeping.
"That was nice." Kagome said stretching. "Thanks Inuyasha."
"INUYASHA!" Miroku said incredulously. " I am the one who got rid of the evil spirit."
"Yes, of course." Sango said smiling, "Tell me, what kind of spirit was it again, Miroku?"
"It was. . . It was. . . oh nevermind." Miroku said defeated.
"Oh, Miroku." Kagome giggled, "Thank you too." She said sweetly.
"Keh." Inuyasha said. "Let's go eat." They all nodded in agreement and headed down to the dining area.
The inn keeper was waiting for them when they arrived. As they sat down he had their food brought to them. When they had all been given their food, the inn keeper bowed low before Miroku, "I don't know what we would have done if you hadn't come along. Many thanks Monk."
"Oh, it was nothing." Miroku replied with a wave of his hand.
"After dinner you will all be treated to all the sake you can drink."
"Thanks very much." Kagome said politely.
The inn keeper bowed once more towards the whole group this time and then walked away.
They all ate dinner in silence. Shippo was almost finished with his dinner when he began yawning and nodding over his plate. Kagome laughed, "Alright Shippo. Time for bed." She picked him up and headed up the stairs. "I'll be right back." She stated as she ascended the stairs. Kirara mewed, yawned and followed closely behind Kagome.
After bedding down Shippo, Kagome decended the stairs. As she reached the last step she saw that the sake had already arrived. She smiled at her friends and then walked over to the bar. She conversed briefly with the lady behind the bar who quickly disappeared and returned with another sake bottle. Kagome took the bottle, mumbled her thanks and the walked over to her friends and sat down.
"We already had a bottle." Miroku stated sipping from his cup.
"Yeah, well I didn't want to share with you two." She said with a smile. She leaned over and quietly whispered into Sango's ear. Sango giggled and nodded as she poured herself a drink from the bottle kagome brought.
"Whatcha talkin' about?" Inuyasha asked.
"If I wanted you to know I would have whispered a little louder." Kagome snapped as she drained her cup and poured herself another.
"Sango! Sango! Look at this!" Kagome waved her hand quickly back and forth in front of her face. She giggled. "If you wave it real fast it gets. . . blurry."
Sango started waving her hand and both girls broke out into a fit of giggles.
Kagome picked up her bottle and drank two huge gulps.
Miroku and Inuyasha both sat with their backs against the wall smiling at the giggling girls before them. "Perhaps you two have had enough." Miroku said.
"Um. . .No." Sango snorted.
"You two are drunk." Inuyasha stated.
"No. we. Are. Not." Kagome said emphasizing each word.
"Yes, you are." Inuyasha said roughly.
"Nope. Look." Kagome stood up. She stretched one arm out by her side while bringing the other arm straight in and touched her nose. "I will now walk in a straight line." She said. She began walking and immediately began to walk crooked.
Lighting flashed brightly, followed by a deafening clap of thunder as rain began to pour. Kagome screamed and jumped into Inuyasha's lap. "KILL IT!" She hollared.
He chuckled, "And just how am I suppose to do that?" He asked. "Its just a storm."
"With this." Kagome said as she reached out and began stroking the Tessaiga.
"OOOOHHHHH!" sango said in mock awe. "You're stroking Inuyasha's sword." suddenly she gasped and began laughing extremely hard. "You're stroking his sword." She squealed.
Understanding slowly dawned on Kagome. She quickly pulled her hand away, cheeks flushing red. " I am SO sorry." she said as she buried her face in Inuyasha's chest. " I didn't mean to molest your sword." She burst out laughing.
Miroku shook his head and stood. He walked over to Sango, "Come my dear Sango." He said, "It is time to sleep." He helped her up.
"Tay." Was all she managed to say. As they headed up the stairs and turned the corner the only sound heard was the gentle persistence of Sango's newly developed hiccups.
"Okay, you too." Inuyasha said.
"No, not yet." Kagome said. "Let's stay down here a little while longer." She laid her head against his chest.
He looked around. The bar had emptied ages ago. "Okay. Just a bit longer."
Meanwhile upstairs. . .
Miroku pulled the covers up over Sango, "Now, get some sleep." He went to stand but Sango reached out and grabbed his hand.
"Where are you going?" She asked him.
"Just over there." He stated, pointing to the corner with his free hand.
Sango leaned up and lifted the covers. "Sleep with me." She said simply.
Miroku arched his brow and couldn't help the smile that spread across his face. She giggled, "Nothing like that Miroku. I'm not THAT drunk. Just. . . hold me." she whispered. He nodded and silently thanking the heavens he climbed under the blanket and pulled Sango into his arms. Together they fell asleep.
"Uh, Kagome. Maybe we should go upstairs to the room now." Inuyasha said.
"Okay." She stood up but began to waver. Inuyasha picked her up and threw her over his shoulder in one quick motion. "WEEEE! SUPERWOMAN!" Kagome threw her arms out laughing.
As they climbed the stairs Kagome suddenly went limp. Inuyasha got worried, "Kagome?"
"Are you alright?"
"Yep! Just enjoying the view."
Inuyasha turned around looking behind him, "What view?" He asked confused.
"This one." She said with a giggle as she patted his butt.
He jumped in suprise, a deep shade of red rising to his cheeks and spreading across his nose.
They finally reached their room where he laid Kagome down on her sleeping bag. "Now sleep." He said firmly as he sat beside her.
Kagome shifted and laid her head in his lap. She reached up and put her hand on his cheek. "Thank you, Inuyasha."
"For what?" He asked.
She smiled as she absentmindedly stroked his cheek with her thumb, "You take car of me."
He took her hand and held it in his own.
"You don't like me!" She spat as she yanked her hand back. She turned her head and looked at Sango and Miroku's sleeping forms and sighed.
"It's not that Kagome. It's not that at all."
She looked up at him, pulling herself up until their faces were only centimeters apart. "Then kiss me." She slurred.
"You're drunk." He stated.
"I knew it." She said not moving.
"Knew what?" He inquired.
"It's her." she said dryly, "Kikyou."
As dawning of her meaning hit him, something inside him jumped. He gently grabbed her neck and pulled her closer, "It's not that at all." He kissed her deeply.
Breaking for air she looked into his large amber eyes, "Then what is it?"
"Ask me again when you're sober." He whispered.
"Will you tell me then?"
Inuyasha smiled. He pulled her into his lap and cradled her. "Promise." He pulled a blanket over her, "Now got to sleep."
She smiled and closed her eyes.
As soon as Kagome heard Inuyasha's deep breathing, signaling his slumber she looked over to her friends.
"Sango." She whispered, "Sango, are you awake?"
"Yes." Sango whispered in return.
"That was fun." Kagome said, barely suppressing another giggle.
"Yes, very much.. . . . do you think that we should tell them that it was water we were drinking all night?"
Kagome looked up at Inuyasha's sleeping face and smiled, "Nah!"
Both girls broke out into one last fit of giggles before drifting of into a peaceful sleep.
I hoped you liked it. I certainly had fun writing it. I am thinking about writing another chapter. Maybe where the boys find out about the "sake water" what do you guys think? Let me know. Thanks for reading.
