Disclaimer: I don't own Inuyasha, but I do own this wonderful story! Thanks everyone for reading, reviewing and supporting me as I wrote it!
Songs featured: Ever Ever Afterby Carried Underwood from the Enchanted soundtrack and the end of Find My Way (kind of like an Omigod! reprise…) from the Legally Blonde musical. If you haven't heard either I suggest youtube ASAP!
Thanks for the reviews:
PinkCatsy- Yay! So now I know Carrie Underwood is your kryptonite…I shall keep that in my notes and use it for my plan for taking over the world…mwahaha! I don't know how that makes sense…
animeroxmywurld- Thanks for the review…I think. I'm going to assume you liked it…anyway here's the dance! Enjoy it!
So I was about to wait until the end of the weekend to put this chapter in for the lack of reviews, but I decided not to torture those who waited ever so patiently.
I hate begging, but reviews make me happy and make me want to write more…
Anyway I've had the toughest week at work and I'm totally drained. In fact I'm falling asleep as I write this…so guys it would totally liven me up to get a bunch of reviews for this chapter? What do you say guys?
WARNING: This chapter contains complete fluffiness. Anyone who's gag reflex is affected by this should close this page IMMEDIATELY.
Ever Ever After…OMIGOD!
"This doesn't look like a 'small get-together' Kagome…" Inuyasha looked at her skeptically and crossed his arms when they entered the dance.
"I'm sorry Inuyasha…I didn't think you'd want to come so I made up a little white lie. It'll be fun though I promise." She said quickly with out taking a breath and smiled.
"Feh. Ok…there's food right?" He said sniffing the air.
"Yes. And please don't sniff in public." She said grabbing his nose.
"Ouch! Hey!" He took her hand off his nose and stared down at her. She looked back up at him and then the two of them looked down noticing he was holding her hand. They looked back up at each other blushing.
"Uh…" Kagome removed her hand from his and pulled some stray hairs behind her ear, as she blushed some more.
"So close and still so far…" Sang the lead singer of the school band. It was the first slow song of the night, though there would probably be more.
Inuyasha then noticed people slow dancing.
"What is this place Kagome?" Inuyasha looked around.
"It's a school dance. Basically boys and girls pair up and dance together. It's all very simple really, thinking about it now…" Kagome blushed again.
"So does that mean we're supposed to dance together?" Inuyasha asked.
"Um…we don't have to. It's a silly high school ritual anyway…" Kagome replied nervously.
They both avoided contact as they went to go find somewhere to sit down.
"Ok, so tell me more about this…dance then." Inuyasha said, sitting down with her at a table.
"Well dances are usually themed. Like there's a homecoming dance in the very beginning of the year and there's a sweethearts dance of Valentines Day…" Kagome explained.
"Which one is this?"
"Um…Sadie Hawkins. The girls ask the boys instead of the boys usually asking the girls. Though there was this guy who asked me anyway. I guess he didn't realize the rules." She laughed thinking about the way Hojo asked her. He may be the smartest guy in the grade, but he just didn't get some things.
"And you ask me?" He blushed.
"Uh huh…" She nodded turning a darker shade of pink.
Meanwhile another song, slightly more upbeat began to fill the room. This time a female singer took the lead.
"Wanna dance Inuyasha?" Kagome asked as causally as possible.
"I don't know how." He said quickly.
"Oh…ok." She frowned and looked embarrassed.
"But I fight demons everyday…how hard could dancing be right?" He said just as quickly.
"Ever ever after!"
Kagome's eyes lit up as Inuyasha stood up and held his hand to her. "Shall we?" He asked. She nodded happily and stood up with him. Together they walked onto the dance floor.
"Storybook endings, fairy tales coming true
Deep down inside we want to believe they still do
And a secret is taught, it's our favourite part of the story
Let's just admit we all want to make it to…"
Kagome put her arms around Inuyasha's neck and his hands rested on her waist. The two of them were incredible nervous: palms sweaty, frantic heartbeats and their faces were red hot as a tomato.
"Ever ever after
If we just don't get it our own way
Ever ever after
It may only be a wish away…"
"You know I'm feeling this odd wave of Déjà vu…" Kagome said, feeling more comfortable in his arms.
"Start a new fashion, wear your heart on your sleeve
Sometimes you reach what's real just by making believe…"
"What's that Kagome?" He asked also feeling for comfortable. His pulled her a little closer, his hands no longer feeling stiff on her waist.
There is joy to be claimed in this world
You even might wind up being glad to be you…"
"It's a French term…" She began.
"Ever ever after
Though the world will tell you it's not smart…"
"Ok…what does it mean?" He asked and looked around the room at the other couples. He really meant it when he said he had no idea how to dance. He looked to the other couples for instruction.
"Ever ever after
The world can be yours if you let your heart
Believe in ever after…"
"It's the feeling where you feel like you've been in the same situation or something really similar before, but you haven't…" Kagome explained.
Inuyasha nodded, feeling the same way.
"No wonder your heart feels it's flying
Your head feels it's spinning…"
Inuyasha twirled her around.
"Each happy ending's a brand new beginning
let yourself be enchanted, you just might break through…"
Kagome twirled right back into his arms and gave him a quick, chaste kiss on the lips. His eyes widened and stayed that way when he pulled apart.
"To ever ever after
forever could even start today…"
"What was that for?" He asked.
"I just wanted to see what it was like, to do it for real this time." She replied innocently, thinking back to their only other kiss, which was never really mentioned by either of them since it happened.
"Ever ever after…"
"Well what was it like?" He asked again.
"You were there!" She answered.
"Maybe it's just one wish away, your ever ever after…"
"Well I didn't really get the chance. I couldn't feel a thing." He lied.
"Well maybe we should try again. For your sake." She flirted.
Maybe it was because they were away from any troubles or that all these couples 'lovey-doviness' was in the air, but Inuyasha happily agreed with Kagome.
"Ever, ever after!"
He kissed her full on with all inhibitions lost.
"I've been dreaming of a true love's kiss…"
She kissed back deepening it.
"Oh, forever ever after…"
They pulled apart smiling at each other and then resumed kissing into the next song.
Meanwhile with the musical spell temporarily instated by Mizuko there was still some musical magic in the air that affected Kagome's three friends. The girls had noticed Kagome and were ecstatic for their friend who finally got the guy…even if he was a supposed angry, immature, two-timing jerk.
Fast upbeat music began to play for the girls. And what a perfect song for them it was.
Omigod, omigod you guys!
Granted, not a complete surprise
But if there ever was a perfect couple
This one qualifies!"
They watched Kagome and Inuyasha pull apart again and oddly enough they began to sing as well. And this time Inuyasha didn't even notice or feel hostile about it.
"I've found my way to love…" They beamed together.
"Omigod!" The girls cried out.
"I've found the way to love!" The couple harmonized.
"You guys!" The girls sang, crowding around them as the other couples continued dancing so incredibly in sync it was as if the whole school was made up of professional dancers.
"I finally found my prize…" Kagome and Inuyasha sang again.
"If there ever was a perfect couple
this one qualifies
Cause we love you guys!"
The girls sang, sounding more valley-girl than ever.
"No we love you guys!" Kagome and Inuyasha said in cheery out of character tones of voice.
"Omigod!" The girls sang happily to Kagome.
"Omigod!" Kagome agreed in girl speak.
"Omigod, you guys!
Everyone in the room sung together. The room blacked out as Kagome and Inuyasha kissed.
It was the perfect end to a perfect night…
"HEY WHO TURNED OUT THE LIGHTS?" A disgruntled student shouted out in the darkness.
Inuyasha sniffed him out in the pitch-black gym and hit him for ruining an otherwise perfect moment.
OMIGOD! I finished! I feel so happy and accomplished! I hope you all enjoyed the ending song…I saw Legally Blonde on Broadway last night and it was in my head…anyway I just had to put it in…
Anyway I hope you all enjoyed…
