Welcome to 'The populars' a world where the socially challenged and the socially acceptable collide.
---One year later---
"Graduation! Graduation! Graduation!" Sango and Yura chanted over and over again, dancing around. The group hollered behind the huge gym curtain, all excited as the whole graduating class was getting ready to accept their certificates.
"I can't believe we made it!" Ayame squealed excitedly. Kikyo and Kagura laughed and nodded their heads as Miroku, Sesshomaru and Koga joined them.
"I know! It's so relieving!" Kikyo said as she went over to Yura who was talking to some other girls. Miroku smirked as Sango walked over to him, wearing the same Red gown and hat. He wrapped her into his arms, kissing her cheek.
"Congratulations." He whispered. She smiled and hugged him tightly, kissing his lips softly as they rejoined the group. Kagura and Sesshomaru were holding hands next to them, smiling. Ayame was currently being picked up by Koga and being spun around as she laughed loudly, Yura and Kikyo dancing and singing loudly as the ceremony started.
"Hey…where are the love birds?" Miroku asked, looking around and not spotting his best friends. He smiled when he saw Kagome and waved her over, she was wearing the same gown as the rest of the girls, her hat slightly tilted on her head.
"Hey guys! Have you seen InuYasha?" She asked, looking around. Miroku frowned and shook his head, asking the rest of the group where he was. They all shrugged their shoulders, looking around for their missing friend, Miroku was the first to spot a very nervous looking InuYasha wearing the same robe and walking towards them.
"Man…you okay?" Miroku asked in concern as InuYasha looked around nervously. InuYasha nodded his head and didn't say anything as everyone was called to stand in alphabetical order. Miroku glanced over to his best friend throughout the long ceremony, hoping to catch his eyes, but each time InuYasha stubbornly looked away, pretending not to notice.
Kagome looked over to InuYasha a few times, whispering his name to gain his attention but he did the same, properly ignoring her throughout their graduation. She started to worry that something had gone wrong, her mind racing and her heart beating rapidly against her ribcage as she tried to recall anything that might have affected him.
Nothing came to mind.
"Okay, so I know that walking across that stage is supposed to be like, an honour or something…but I think that was possibly the longest ceremony I have ever gone through in my whole entire life." Sango complained as they all sat around their table. Their parents were off conversing with other parents and each other, leaving the teens at the large table.
"I know. All for a stupid piece of paper." Kagura rolled her eyes. They were all wearing their formal wear for the graduation dinner. Sango had a formfitting light pink dress that tied around her neck in a halter and left her back bare. Her hair was in a high bun, a few pieces of hair in curls.
Kagura wore a deep maroon dress that hugged her curves and was strapless, her hair in a neat bun as well, light make-up accentuating her eyes. Ayame wore a deep emerald dress that hugged her waist before flowing out to her knees softly, her hair down and out of its usual pig tails.
The guys were each wearing suits, with white dress shirts underneath. Sesshomaru stood up then, holding a hand out for Kagura who smiled. She took his hand and followed him to the crowded dance floor. He placed his hands on her hips, her arms resting on his shoulders as she smiled.
Sango and Miroku stood and went to get a drink for themselves, though Sango had trouble keeping Miroku's hands off her.
"Stop it! I will slap the hell out of you." Sango warned again as they made their way to the large ceremony room. Miroku smirked, kissing her bare shoulder gently as he wrapped his arms around her tightly.
"You're fault for wearing this dress." Sango sighed.
Ayame and Koga had gotten suckered in to taking pictures with their classmates. Yura had gone to the dance with Menomaru, a guy she had been crushing on since she had Social with him her first year of high school. Sporting a short, tight fitting low neck black dress she had gone with him. Menomaru was definitely a rebel, with wild sea foam green hair that was slicked back, piercings on his lips and eye brows and pale skin.
Kikyo had been asked out by a few guys, but had eventually gone to the dance with Suikotsu. A guy who had been in her sports med class. He was a nice guy with a heart of gold; he and Kikyo were amazing together.
"Where the heck is he?" Kagome grumbled as she stood by herself in the middle of the dance floor, looking for her boyfriend. She sighed, straitening out hr crimson dress. It held onto her curves, strapless with a modest V-neck dip and a deeper crimson sash wrapping around her lithe waist before flowing to the floor. Her hair was down, slightly curled.
After a few more moments of cursing him for ignoring her on the day of their graduation, she was about to leave before the microphone on the dark stage was tapped. The music died down in the dimly lit ceremony room and saw InuYasha in a black suit with a white dress shirt and a crimson tie on.
"What in the…" Kagome tiled her head slightly as InuYasha nervously swallowed. A few of the other popular guys hollered at him which caused him to flip them off, a few teachers and parents laughing.
"Okay, well since those idiots ruined this mood, I'm not going to try to salvage it." InuYasha glared at said group, laughter rising from the crowd. He cleared his throat and looked to Kagome, in the middle of the room who was blushing as everyone else moved away from her.
"Kagome Higurashi. I love you. And I know that this is pretty cliché, and pretty ridiculous, but hey, we're pretty cliché too." He started. Kagome laughed and shook her head, her heart thumping in her chest as she watched the love of her life run a hand through his silver locks, his voice stuttering slightly.
"Go InuYasha!" a few hollered as some girls in the crowd started to awe in appreciation.
"Shut up! I'm trying to make a speech here!" InuYasha growled, a blush covering his cheeks. Everyone laughed again, Kagome shaking her head as she slowly made her way to the stage. Once she got up, the spot light still on the couple, their friends rushed to the front row.
"I know that this may not mean much to you but…" He paused to pull out a small, slender silver ring. It wasn't special, no diamond or anything, but it was beautiful in her eyes. Tears rushed to her as she looked up into his gold eyes.
"I'm not asking you to marry me so calm down! Same to you, Mrs. H." He flashed a smile at the woman who laughed and shook her head. Everyone in the family knew how much Kagome's mom had wanted them to get married.
"But it's a promise ring. Yes. I know. Lame. But I mean…I love you and I want you to know that one day we're going to get married. So suck on that, Hojo." Everyone erupted in laughter as well as Hojo, who had asked Kagome out when he first entered their school, not knowing that she was dating InuYasha and who had also been a long running joke in the school as Kagome's other boyfriend.
"And…I just wanted you to know how serious I am. I love you." He whispered the microphone by his lips as he leaned his forehead to Kagome's. She smiled, tears leaking her eyes as she leaned in and kissed him hard, his fingers slipping the ring onto her hand.
Their friends jumped up and down screaming and cheering as they kissed each other. After everything tat had happened to them, they were still as strong as ever. They were the populars and unpopulars but most of all, they were friends.
