AN: I'm happy that some of you liked my sibling fic so far and I'm very sorry that I hadn't updated this. I was in a pinch as to how to write the second and last part of the fic. So I decided to try and get this over with by somehow getting Kagome and Ichigo together before anything else.

I'm sorry if this turned our short but I really tried my best.


Part Two
Shinigami and Miko Come Together...

Seven years later…

Kagome sat under a shaded tree, basing in what sun crept through the lush green leaves of its canopy. Waiting for someone very dear to her.

A year after her quest in the Sengoku Jidai and completing the jewel, Kagome had returned home for good. About a month after, to help her move past her slight depression of never seeing her friends again, Kun-loon thought it would be best that she move to Karakura Town (That what you call Ichigo's home town, right?) while also finish her schooling there.

Thinking it really was a good idea, Kagome agreed before Kun-loon called someone very familiar…

The Higurashi woman called Ryuuken, asking him if Kagome could live with him until she finished school and the doctor agreed without hesitation, looking forward to Kagome's arrival.

You see… sometime after Uryuu and Kagome turned eleven, Kun-loon received a call from her father-in-law asking them to come live with him to help him take care of the family shrine and such and Kun-loon agreed. With this news, Kagome and Uryuu, who became so close had to be separated from each other despite how much Kagome didn't want to leave or how much Uryuu didn't want her to go. It was a tearful goodbye between the blue-eyed children with promises to stay in touch.

Even Uryuu's father, Ryuuken came with his son to say goodbye with words of how much he was going to miss her.

And Kagome did stay in touch with them, almost writing to them everyday until she was dragged down the well. After the start of her journey, her letters became less frequent to where she stopped sending them entirely even though Uryuu still wrote with every chance he had.

As the thought of Kagome returning to Karakura Town sunk in, she became excited to meet with her childhood friend again. She missed Uryuu so much that she decided to make her arrival secret to surprise him and mentioned it to Ryuuken. The elder Ishida then told her it wouldn't be a problem because he had moved out and into an apartment when he first turned fifteen.

This made Kagome curious as to why her friend decided to do this but was suggested to ask him herself when she saw him on her first day at school when she transferred to Karakura High.

Anyways, after moving in with Ryuuken, Kagome was transferred to Karakura High and, either by luck or coincidence, in the same class as her friend, Uryuu.

Kagome smiled at the memory of how Uryuu's face looked after she had walked into the classroom…

After Ryuuken had dropped Kagome off at the front gates of the school, the miko was about to make her way to the front office until she remembered that she didn't know where the office was. She was able to get help from someone who looked like he was running late, running up to the entrance.

He was pretty unique, compared to most human guys she had met, with spiky orange hair (LOL Guess who?) and a panicked scowl on his face while wearing the same uniform as her (Kagome decided to wear the boys' uniform since she gave up wearing skirts). But what really caught her attention about him was his huge amount of spiritual power that seemed to roll off of him in waves, uncontrollably.

Catching him before he just flew passed her; Kagome was able to ask him for directions before letting him go so he wouldn't miss the first bell for class. Once she had gotten her schedule and found her homeroom, with the help of one of the office aids, Kagome was introduced by the teacher to her classmates- Uryuu being one among them who was greatly surprised to see her, well as the orange haired boy who gave her directions to the office.

Once lunch hour came around, Kagome was brought into what would be labeled as a bear hug from behind by the young Ishida, gaining curious and surprised looks from most of the class who decided to eat in the classroom. Kagome returned the hug, saying how much she had missed him since she had moved. After a little catching up, Uryuu introduced Kagome to his friends and Kagome was able to Ichigo's name.

She practically hit it off well with the substitute Shinigami and found his friends, especially Asano Keigo to be amusing.

While she was getting well acquainted with everyone, it was Orihime who spoke out in awe, "Wow… Higurashi-san… your eyes almost look like Ishida-kun's…" while also adding how pretty they looked.

At this, everyone looked at the mostly over imaginative girl before looking toward Kagome and Uryuu, all now noticing how much they look alike. And how Tatsuki (I think that's the name of Orihime's friend who has short spiky black hair) and Rukia said that if none of them knew better, they would've thought that the two were somehow related.

XoXoX

Kagome chuckled before remembering how Uryuu's expression seemed to falter that day before she shrugged it off and thought nothing of it since the said expression vanished within seconds.

Currently a year had already passed with Kagome staying in Karakura Town and was quite happy where she was living under Ryuuken's care and having more friends than she did before. Not to mention, she gained a new boyfriend in the form of a certain substitute shinigami too.

THAT happened after a couple of months she had started attending Karakura High, at the cultural festival's talent show. Secretly, Ichigo had practiced day and night, on and off the job of disposing hollows, when no one was in hearing range or in sight, for this. During the time Kagome was in his class, Ichigo had become attracted to her and started to fall in love with her despite her close friendship with Uryuu. And to show her how much he liked her and wanted her to go out with him, Ichigo planned on entering the talent show…

What was he planning to do? Well… he was… planning to… sing.

That's right, Ichigo was planning to sing in front of the ENTIRE school, as well as a few visiting ones, just to show Kagome his feelings.

(Awwwwwwwwww)

The memory of Ichigo's performance, as well as his confession, made Kagome blush and smile wistfully…

XoXoX

The announcement as well as rumors going around that Kurosaki Ichigo was going to take part in the talent show reached all ears of those who attended Karakura High's cultural festival. But the reason what he was going to do and why was a mystery to everyone, especially to his friends.

Secretly, Ichigo asked their school's rock band to help him and they had agreed especially when their lead singer was sick. At that point, they would take anyone who could sing. And plus, they were going to perform the same song Ichigo was going to sing for Kagome. So it was two birds with one stone, so to speak.

As Ichigo started walking on stage with the band, everyone in the auditorium started to whisper loudly before the lead guitarist of the group explained what was happening, what they were going to be performing, and mention that Ichigo was doing this for someone very special to him.

Whispers picked up again with everyone wondering whom they were talking about before Ichigo took his place in front of the mic. For a moment, he looked around- "unnoticeably" nervous- in the audience before finding Kagome in one of the center seats of the first row. He sent a lighter version of his trademark smirk to her when she gave him a silent thumbs up- wishing him luck as the music started.

Despite the lies that you're making
Your love is mine for the taking
My love is
Just waiting
To turn your tears to roses

The music then grew intense with lead electric and bass going all out and everyone who knew Ichigo by reputation were silent with awe and shock, including his friends and the shinigami who came to the human world to attend his school (Hitsugaya, Matsumoto, Renji, Rukia, and all others before the Arrancar come to fight).

Despite the lies that you're making
Your love is mine for the taking
My love is
Just waiting
To turn your tears to roses

I will be the one that's gonna hold you
I will be the one that you run to
My love is
A burning, consuming fire

Ichigo's sights then turned to Kagome before he started the chorus…

No
You'll never be alone
When darkness comes I'll light the night with stars
Hear the whispers in the dark
No
You'll never be alone
When darkness comes you know I'm never far
Hear the whispers in the dark

Whispers in the dark

Ichigo saw the light blush dust across Kagome's cheeks. She understood that she was his special someone before he continued, not once separating his eyes from hers.

You feel so lonely and ragged
You lay here broken and naked
My love is
Just waiting
To clothe you in crimson roses

I will be the one that's gonna find you
I will be the one that's gonna guide you
My love is
A burning, consuming fire

No
You'll never be alone
When darkness comes I'll light the night with stars
Hear the whispers in the dark
No
You'll never be alone
When darkness comes you know I'm never far
Hear the whispers in the dark

Whispers in the dark

After repeating the chorus one more time before the song came to a close, leaving everyone, especially the teachers speechless as he walked of the stage to Kagome. Once he was in front of her, he asked her if she would be his girlfriend.

A pause passed between them before the miko smiled at him, nodding 'yes', not trusting her voice from squeaking or releasing a sob of happiness. As Ichigo brought her into his arms with hers around is neck, the band members let out hoots and howls and yells of encouragement as Ichigo's friends just smiled and clapped and everyone else slowly were brought out of their dazes of shock and such before clapping and hooting as well.

XoXoX

Kagome's trip down memory lane was cut short as she felt a familiar presence kneeled next to her and brought his lips to her ear, humming the first verse to "Falling Inside The Black" by Skillet.

The miko chuckled lightly before saying, "You know, ever since that talent show… I think you've gained more confidence in your unknown talent in music to the point where you want to show it off." She then opened her eyes to see Ichigo smirking at her before sitting up so that he could sit behind her.

With his smirk, he replied, "I just like giving you the chance to hear something as rare as my voice when singing… even when you mentioned, quite a couple of times, that you'd never get tired of it." He then kissed the side of her neck after wrapping his arms around her waist as she was settled between his legs.

(Trust me girls- and guys- a man who knows how to sing is a REAL good thing)

Substitute Shinigami and Miko basked in each other's presence, wondering what they had done to deserve the person they were with and had come to care for so much.

But one thing was certain though… no matter what… they weren't going to let each other go. Not if they had a say in it. And not even the strongest in Soul Society was going to tear them apart.


A bit of a quick closing but Hey! At least I updated and showed how Ichigo and Kagome got together and made a bit of a canon after Kagome's trips to the Sengoku era.

Anyways, hope you guys enjoyed this and please leave a review. Suggestions and ideas for part 3 are welcome and would be most appreciated. Flamers with your flames… don't bother leaving anything and don't let the door hit your ass on the way out, either.
