"We need to talk to this woman" said Will

"Yeah, she might not know that Phobos is a bad person" said Irma

"I doubt it" said Cornelia and flipped her hair over the shoulder.

"But how can we talk to her? We can't even get into the castle thanks to her" said Taranee in a 'matter of factly' tone.

"Someone can lure her out of there" replied Hay Lin. And everybody stared at Vathek.

"Me?"

"Vathek, my friend you are the only one of us that can enter the castle. If you bring her to the village so she can meet Will and the others, she might help us" explained Caleb.

"Sound like a plan to me!" said Irma.

"Alright, but how?"

And the small group started to plan how to get Kagome to visit the village so they could meet her.


oOo Five days later oOo

Kagome and Cedric sat in the garden. Well Kagome was sitting, leaning towards a huge tree in the garden. And Cedric stood beside her, reading the book over her shoulder, to see if she was reading correctly. She was a fast learner but she had problems with some words and phrases.

"Cedric, that word" she said and pointed to a word. "What does it mean?"

Cedric looked at it. 'How to explain?' he thought and coughed.

"That word has many meanings" he answered.

"So what does it mean?"

"It depends on the sentence. It can mean portal, tunnel or…"

"Or what?" she asked looking at him with curious eyes. Not knowing how to explain he coughed once more.

"It can also mean a women's garden" he said and coughed again.

"Oh!" said a surprised Kagome and blushed. "But in this sentence, what does it mean?"

Cedric read the whole page. "It means Portal"

"That one?" she asked and pointed to another word.

Cedric leaned over to see better, and explained the words meaning. This continued for several hours and it ended with Cedric's back hurt a lot.


oOo"Cedric's P.O.V."oOo

They walked out to the garden. Kagome was trying to read a book all by herself, she was a fast learner but had problems with some words and phrases. Kagome walked past him and sat by a tree. A thing she always did before walking into the garden was taking of her shoes, something he didn't understand.

"Cedric sit here!" she said smiling at him and showed him where to sit, which was on the ground next to her.

Cedric stared at Kagome and then at the spot next to her. 'No, it's improper for a man of my caliber' he thought to himself.

'Afraid what you might do if you get to close?' the snake like voice asked.

'Quiet!'

"I prefer to stand" he hissed and stood beside Kagome so he could see the text.

"As you wish, but don't blame me if you hurt your back" she replied.

"I won't" he said and looked up at the barrier. 'No guardians for five days. I could get used to this' he thought and smirked.

Cedric was interrupted in his train of thoughts by Kagome.

"Cedric, that word" she said and pointed to a word. "What does it mean?"

Cedric leaned over to see the word better. 'How to explain' he thought and coughed.

"That word has many meanings" he replied.

"So what does it mean?" she asked.

"It depends on the sentence. It can mean portal, tunnel or…" he stopped himself. His other voice, the snaked started laughing at him.

"Or what?" she asked looking at him with curious eyes. Not knowing how to explain he coughed once more.

'Stopped laughing, I can hear myself think…and I don't see the humor in this'

'I do! So how are you going to explain that word to her?' the voice hissed and chuckled.

"It can also mean a women's garden" he said and coughed again.

"Oh!" said a surprised Kagome and blushed. "But in this sentence, what does it mean?"

Cedric read the whole page. "It means Portal"

"That one?" she asked and pointed to another word. Cedric leaned forward again and looked at the new word. And this continued until Cedric had to stop because he had back pain.


Cedric was leaning against Kagome. They walked to Cedric room.

"I told you, you would hurt your back!" she said.

Cedric didn't reply.

Kagome looked around. 'Okay, this is my room' she thought 'and over there should be Cedric's room' she thought and opened the door.

'Wow'

Cedric's room was simple and clean with lot of space. A large bed, an oak wardrobe, a dark wooden desk with a matching chair, a bookshelf and an armchair was all he had in his room. No paintings, no wait he had a map over the desk, a map over Meridian or so Kagome thought.

"Lay down on the bed on your stomach" she said. "I'm going to help you"

Cedric did as he was told. "This might sting a little" she said and placed her hands on his lower back. Her hands emitted a bright pink glow.

"What are you doing?" he asked.

"Silence, I need to concentrate" she said and moved her hands up and down his back. "Does your back feel better?"

Cedric nodded. "Yes, much better"

"Good" she said and removed her hands. "You can sit up now"

Cedric hesitated for a while but sat up. And as Kagome had said, she had fixed his back. "Well, then. Bye" she said and started to walk to the door but was stopped. Cedric had grabbed her hand and pulled her closer.

"Cedric, Wha?" she didn't get the chance to finish asking her question because Cedric kissed her. And Kagome kissed him back.


Yay, The first kiss! :3

Someone asked me: "That voice that Cedric is hearing. Is he like schizophrenic?"

My answer: No, it's kinda like a second voice/His eviler side.
