Disclaimer: I do not own Inuyasha, like many others who don't. To bad for us….

Summary: This takes place after episode 126 Turn Heartache Into Courage, but instead of Kagome and Inuyasha making up, Kagome confesses her feelings but then leaves the group because she can't stand how Inuyasha acts anymore. Once reunited though, how do they react to each other? And what does life have to throw at them.

For this story let's say Miroku and Sango are already engaged. This story also does not have a definite ending, just pretty much a continuation.

"talking" 'thinking' regular *actions*

Main Pairings: Inu/Kag & Mir/San


(Ep. 126) Kagome stirs from unconsciousness and blink open her eyes.

"Are you awake, Kagome?" asked Inuyasha worriedly.

"You did come for me, after all." whispered Kagome. Kagome then tries to sit up from the straw mat she was lying upon while the blanket covering her falls from her upper body to her lower body.

"Take it easy." whispered Inuyasha while helping Kagome sit up.

A few minutes later they're both sitting side-by-side on the hill that overlooks Kaede's village with the trees from the forest covering the bright rays of the sun.

"Kagome, I'm so sorry about-" Inuyasha started.

"It's okay Inuyasha." Kagome cut in.

"No it's not!" yelled Inuyasha. "I'll never leave you alone again!"

"Yeah, but if you hear a hint of Kikyo you'll go looking for her again." scoffed Kagome.

"No, I will not!" Inuyasha defended himself.


"I am not!"

"You're the type that would go!" Kagome said loudly while moving her face near his until they were mere centimeters apart. Inuyasha made a low growl sound as he backed away slightly and his ears flattened to his scalp. "And when you do," Kagome paused. "I'll be upset. But that's to be expected right?" Kagome finished while looking into Inuyasha's golden eyes.

"Kagome…" Inuyasha whispered in bewilderment. 'She has the same feelings for me as I do for her' thought Inuyasha. Kagome scooted closer to Inuyasha and rested her head on his shoulder. Inuyasha then rested his hand on her shoulder then pulled her closer. 'Thank you, Kagome' though Inuyasha, though not really sure what he was thanking her for.

As the sun set, Kagome's last thought was 'What do I do?'

The next morning in Kaede's hut, Kagome and Sango woke first and started on breakfast. Sango was happy she got her "sister" back from Naraku nearly unscaved. Kagome's thoughts were far from happy. As the fire crackled, and the stew made and cooked, the rest of group woke and ate their breakfast.

A little later, Sango and Miroku decided to have a mock fight to practice for battle.

"Bye guys. Have fun. And Sango?" said Kagome. Sango turned to acknowledge her friend. "Don't beat him up to badly." Kagome winked at her "sister" and everyone, except Miroku, giggled.

"Very funny Kagome. You guys don't think I can beat her do you?" said the annoyed Miroku.

"Nope." everyone said with a smile plastered on their faces.

"Mew." Kirara apparently agreed as well.

"Haha very funny." Miroku said sarcastically. Then the two walked off towards the forest to battle so they won't break anything in the village.

"Hey, Inuyasha I'm gonna go home for a little, kay?" stated Kagome.

"Yeah, okay… sure. Um, I'll walk you there." stuttered Inuyasha.

At the well, Inuyasha and Kagome stood by the well facing each other.

"Well this is good-bye then." said Kagome.

"Yeah. Bye." Inuyasha said softly.

'I guess this is our last good bye.' thought Kagome as she jumped in the well. A tear leaked out from the corner of her eye. 'Please forgive me. I know I promised to stay by your side but… My heart can't take this anymore'

'She's gone again.' sighed Inuyasha 'Is it finally the day she realizes… I'm not good enough for her? That's my only question.' After that thought, Inuyasha walked into the forest, to watch Sango beat Miroku badly.

"This is your decision, Kagome?" asked Kagome's mom as she and her daughter sat at the kitchen table.

"Yes, mom." said Kagome as her bangs covered her eyes in a shadow.

"Well then. I respect that decision because you've seem to put a lot of thought into this." Kagome only nodded. "Be safe, hon." Kagome gave a sad smile to her mom then sat up to take a hot bath and wash away the tear stains on her face.
