Undeniably His: Her scent was everything and it drove him insane. He had finally found his mate yet he was in love with another.
"You are quite the gentleman." She smiled at her boyfriend with happiness glistening from her eyes.
"And why wouldn't I be when I have the perfect girl standing before me." He gave her a peck on the cheek. "So what do you want to eat?"
"I really don't know what you have in mind." She took a place on his lap as his arms encircled around her waist.
"I wouldn't mind having you to eat." He grinned mischievously as he made circles around her back with his finger.
"Inuyasha stop that. Not in public." She said looking around making sure no one noticed. Inuyasha couldn't help but to laugh a bit as he tightened his grip around her waist a bit. "Now why would I want to stop when I know that it's satisfying you Kikyo?" He had a smirk on his face.
"Don't get too happy Inuyasha, but really what do you want to eat, because I am getting hungry."
"How about we go to that restaurant off of 23rd." he suggested.
"I heard of that place, they have been getting rave reviews since they opened a couple of months ago."
"So is that a date?"
"But of course." Inuyasha leaned in to give her a kiss which she quickly obliged as she rested her hands on his shoulders. Inuyasha and Kikyo had been dating since his senior year of high school and had been together ever since. They had been madly in love yet something was holding them back. She didn't carry his mate's scent. Something that unsettled him immensely. How could he love someone so much yet she wasn't his mate. Although he knew he could mate her if he wanted to, his father said that if he hadn't found his mate by the end of this year, then he was free to mate with Kikyo.
That put a smile on his face since there were only a couple of weeks left in the year.
"We better get out of here, or we both are going to catch a cold." Kikyo pulled from his lips as she watched Inuyasha let out a murmur.
"We can keep each other warm; I know that you won't mind that at all."
"Come on lover boy." She stood up fixing her coat and skirt and grabbed Inuyasha's hand intertwining her fingers with his.
"This restaurant is nice; I can see why they got those reviews." Inuyasha marveled at the interior designs. It reminded him of a traditional European feel.
"Well let's see if their food is up to par with the designs."
The two of them waited for them to be seated, which didn't take long at all, maybe less than a minute. They were seated at a two seated table.
"A waiter will be here momentarily to take your order." He said as he walked off.
Kikyo grabbed the menu and begin to scan her brown eyes over its contents. "This entree sounds nice." Kikyo pointed at one of the food selections.
"And I thought you were hungry."
"I am, I just don't want to get too full."
"Well order whatever you want it's on me."
"As if I was going to pay anyway."
Inuyasha raised a brow. "Oh so you wanted to leave all of the bills on me."
"Hey you are the gentleman aren't you?" she raised a brow at him, smirking knowingly.
"I guess you got me on that one."
Kikyo laughed a bit as she continued to look on the menu trying to figure exactly it was that she wanted. Everything seemed lovely. A couple of minutes later, a female waitress approached the two.
"Hello my name is Asuka; I will be your waitress for the evening. Would you like anything to drink?" she pulled out a pad with a pen in her hand.
"Yes I would like to have a sprite." Inuyasha said.
Asuka turned to face Kikyo. "And what about you Miss?"
"You can give me a coke."
"Alrighty, I will be back with your drinks. Have you decided on what it is that you would like to eat?"
"Could you give us a couple more minutes, Asuka?" Inuyasha said as he noticed that Kikyo was still scanning over what exactly it would be that she would get.
"Okay, I'll be right back." She said walking off.
"So I guess you are still contemplating on what you want to eat." Inuyasha rested his elbow on the table with his face resting on his hand.
"How can you decide with all these dishes? They all look so good."
"How about you try something new?" Inuyasha suggested.
"That would work if I had been here before. I guess I will get this." She showed him.
"That sounds good."
As if she was on cue, Asuka returned with their drinks. "Here's your coke and your sprite." She placed the glasses on the table.
"We are ready to order." Inuyasha stated.
"Okay what can I get you sir?"
"I will take the grilled salmon with prosciutto."
She turned to face Kikyo. "And you miss?"
"I will have the Reinsdyrsteik."
"Okay for you sir, you want the grilled salmon with prosciutto and you miss want the reinsdyrsteik"
They both nodded their heads in agreement seeing that she had heard the orders correctly.
"It will be a few minutes before your order is ready," she said as they handed the menus over to here.
"So what exactly is Reinsdyrsteik?" Inuyasha questioned taking a sip of his soda.
"I have no idea; it looks like some type of meat. It looks good though."
Inuyasha stared at Kikyo as she took a sip of her soda. Kikyo raised a brow curiously, wondering why he had such a heated stare. "What are you staring at?"
"Is there something wrong?"
"No just admiring how beautiful you are."
Kikyo smiled as she felt Inuyasha place his hand on top of hers. She looked at him knowing that he had something to say.
"You know we only have a couple of weeks before New Year's"
She nodded her head. "Yes, have you talked to your father about the whole mate thing?"
"Well it doesn't look like I will be finding my mate anytime soon, but as far as I know you are my mate."
"I had always thought that you would be taken away from me if that girl would have shown up" she looked away not wanting to show him that she had tears in her eyes. But that didn't work, he could smell them.
"Don't cry Kikyo, we only have a couple of more days and you and I will finally be mated."
"I just wish that I had your mate's scent, you know. So that we wouldn't have to go through this headache."
"As the law of demons, we all have our mates. But some things are worth defying aren't they."
"Someone seems to be quite the risk taker." She smirked at him.
"As always." He smirked back at her. He brought her hand up to his face, his breath tickling the skin on her hand. He lips touched her flesh and she closed her eyes, enjoying the touch of his lips on her hand.
"Don't start anything Inuyasha." She warned.
"I'll behave for now." He said as he looked up at her with a grin.
The waitress had arrived several minutes later as she came with their food. Inuyasha and Kikyo enjoyed their time together talking about the things that they had plan to do in the next couple of days. It was romantic for the two of them. This reminded Inuyasha of their first date.
"This was really good." Kikyo said wiping her face with the napkin.
"Did you get full?"
"Yes, I don't think I can take another bite."
Inuyasha laughed a bit as he pulled out his wallet and placed some bills on the table. "You ready?"
"Yes, but I have to use the bathroom." Kikyo said as she disappeared from the table. Inuyasha got up and walked towards the entrance of the restaurant. As he waited for Kikyo to come in he saw several people enter in.
"This is a nice restaurant." A woman's voice said in excitement.
"I'm just ready to eat mom." A young male's voice chimed in.
"Souta honey, could you tell your sister to come on."
"She's coming along with grandpa." He replied as the door open.
Inuyasha's took a whiff of the scent that suddenly seemed to overwhelm his senses. He knew that it wasn't coming from the older woman. She was much older than him that much he knew. So where was the scent coming from. It held his attention and watered his mouth. It was damn near unbearable. It had such an intoxicating scent that it caused his head to get dizzy and his knees buckle.
"Mate."His demon said with surety.
Inuyasha's eyes widen dramatically as he heard the statement that his demon had said. His mate? He had found his mate. As Inuyasha was lost in his thoughts, the door opened and two people walked in. The scent hit him like a ton of bricks.
"Sorry mom, I had to help with grandpa."
"It's alright Kagome."
Inuyasha had to resist the urge of touching her. The scent that she was giving off was more unbearable now that they were in the same room.
"Okay I'm ready." Kikyo interrupted his train of thought.
Inuyasha looked at her with a look of bewilderment on his face. "Oh hey Kikyo."
Kikyo looked at Inuyasha curiously. "Are you okay, you're sweating?"
He hadn't realized that he was sweating. He brushed the comment away with a reassuring smile. "That's because I was thinking of you."
She smiled at him as she interlocked her arm with his. "Let's get out of here, I'm getting sleepy."
"Sure thing." He looked down at her as the two of them walked out of the restaurant.
The ride to Kikyo's house was one that had unusual silence. Both parties didn't know why they were quiet. Maybe it was the food or something.
Inuyasha mind wondered on the event that just changed his life. Did he really meet his mate? Or was it just his imagination? It had to be his imagination; his mate couldn't have just appeared out of nowhere. That was unheard of.
Inuyasha pulled into the driveway and turned the engine off; he turned his attention towards Kikyo. "Well we're here."
Kikyo looked at her house and then back at him. "We are aren't we?" she smiled at him.
Without warning, Inuyasha pulled Kikyo towards him giving her a searing kiss. Kikyo moaned a bit as she wrapped her arms around his neck deepening the kiss. It was a sudden thrill that she felt inside her. As fast as it started, it quickly ended.
Kikyo had to catch her breath as she looked at Inuyasha. "What was all that about?"
"You know I love you Kikyo and I can't wait for us to be mated. You are my mate."
Kikyo felt her heart soar at his declaration of love. "I love you too Inuyasha."
"As soon as the New Year's arrive, I will make you mine." He said huskily.
Kikyo smiled as she leaned over and gave Inuyasha a soft kiss on the lips. "I better get going."
Kikyo walked towards her front door and Inuyasha made sure that she made it inside before driving off.
His mind went to the events that had transpired a couple of minutes ago. That girl, she couldn't possibly be his mate. There was no way.
Yet her scent drove him up the wall with possession.
"She's not the one. Kikyo is."
Hey everyone, well that's the end of this chapter. I hope you all like it. The first couple of chapters will go by slow as I have to get a couple of things out of the way before the story actually makes some progression.
This is going to be a pretty long story. I haven't decided on what the exact length will be, so I am going to let it go by the flow. So stay tuned for the upcoming chapters!
