Hey guys! I wrote this story years ago but I lost three chapters way at the end and couldn't bring myself to post it until now. I'm writing over the three chapters trying to make them work for the story, it's going okay right now.

This story has absolutely nothing to do with my other story The Ero-Romantic Tragedy of Sesshoumaru's past life or any of the sideline stories. I just wanted to give you guys something else to read while I'm finishing the other stories, so please enjoy!

Disclaimer: I do not own Inuyasha. Sadly.

I do not own Inuyasha or any of the characters created by Rumiko Takahashi, but I do own the idea/plot/storyline of this story.

Summary: Kagome has fallen in love with Inuyasha, a guy that's so passionate for her it confuses her and makes her scared to create a deeper relationship with him.

This story is very out of character, but hey that hardly matters now does it? Please enjoy and review!

Confused Love Story

Chapter 1: Listen to me!


Through annoyed brown eyes, the girl in question looked up at the young man standing before her. It was Inuyasha Takahashi, her boyfriend. What now? Didn't he realize that she was getting tired of his voice?

"Yes, Inuyasha?" He was much taller than her so she had to crane her head upwards to look at him. He stared down at her with his warm, welcoming smile. Maybe she would agree to listen to his song today, he surmised.

"I wrote a so-"

"Let me guess," She intercepted with a smile of her own. "You'd like me to listen to you?"

He nodded a little. "Would you?"

She sighed and looked away from him. "Inuyasha, I'm very sorry but I truly have a- migraine." She lied putting her hand on her head and feigned pain. "I don't know why I came to school today. I'm so sorry but I really don't think I could take hearing you sing today."

"Oh," he couldn't conceal his displeasure and he didn't want to. It was the same thing every day. He'd ask her to listen to him; she'd decline with an excuse like always. He was getting tired of hearing it.

She glanced back up at him and noted the displeasure in his deep amber eyes. Instinctively, she wrapped her arms around his neck, and stood on her tiptoes.

"I'm sorry," She said as remorseful as possible.

"It's okay, I understand. It's not your fault you have a headache." He sighed as she claimed his lips in a soft, passionate kiss.

Meanwhile, a shadow of a girl walked pass. Kagome Higurashi watched as they kissed passionately in a corner and sighed sadly. No one had ever kissed her like that, and she would probably never be kissed like that.

'Look at them, they look so peaceful; so happy.' She smiled at the obviously happy couple. 'They'll probably be together forever, even though; she treats him like scum. Maybe one day, she'll change her ways and see just how much he loves her.'

Suddenly, Kikyo pulls away and turns to see Kagome staring like she was watching a romance movie. Kagome averted her eyes elsewhere and continued to walk off.

Kikyo turns back to Inuyasha and saw that he was still dazed by her kiss. "I'll see you later, Hun." She grinned and walked away in the direction she saw Kagome take.

Kagome opened her locker and began to put her books into it. She didn't see when Kikyo approached but she felt her presence. She craned her neck to look at the tall, pretty faced girl that had stolen the heart of her long-time crush.

"Well, well, if it isn't little Ms. Kanome Higutrashi," She smiled mischievously as she eased a lock of her long, wavy black hair behind her ear.

Kagome bit her lip and looked away. "It's Kagome Higurashi," She corrected softly.

"Whatever. I saw you staring at me and Inuyasha." The beautiful, pale skinned woman said stepping closer.

Kagome inhaled deeply; she didn't want any problems. She always kept to herself and there was nothing wrong with her just looking at the way a couple kissed. She gulped deeply and inhaled again. Maybe she should have kept her eyes to herself.

"Look at me when I'm talking to you!" Kikyo snapped. "I know you're an ugly little thing but I'm sure you're ugliness won't kill me!" She growled. Kikyo hated not having a person's full attention, especially if she was talking to them.

Kagome focused her eyes on Kikyo's beauty. Why didn't the girl just leave her alone? Maybe she should apologize for staring. Maybe Kikyo thought it was offensive and rude of her.

"I'm really sorry about watching you and Inuyasha." Kagome apologized quickly.

Kikyo beamed. "Well, you see, I know you just wanted a glimpse of the kind of life you won't ever have, so I don't mind." She cackled callously. "Actually, I like when people watch us. It's exciting."

Kagome grimaced slightly. Why wouldn't this girl just disappear?

"Anyway, I got to go." Kikyo started to leave and Kagome exhaled inaudibly. Suddenly, Kikyo turned and grinned at her. "One day Kagome, you may get a man who'll love you. Of course I don't think you should hold your breath waiting for that day cause that could prove fatal." Kikyo's laugh sounded like a witch and the hideous sound echoed painfully in Kagome's ears.

Kagome sighed sadly as tears came to her eyes. So what if she was plain, so what if she never had a boyfriend. It certainly wasn't a crime. It was saddening though, just to know that she might probably never have a boyfriend even once in her life.

Kagome paused from swiping the tears from her eyes and closing her locker when she suddenly heard a familiar sound, the strumming of a guitar. She heard the smooth scales, and a feeling of calm washed over her.

She was hypnotized by the sound, which led her to the music room. She peeped inside, and saw Inuyasha. He was singing and strumming his guitar while seated on a stool beside a baby grand piano.

It was a sad song he was singing, something about a guy that loved this girl who didn't appreciate his talent for music.

'He sits alone, inside his room, writing songs to her beauty,'

'He gives her money, takes her out, and does his duty,'

'He goes to her, to sing his song, but she sends him away,'

'He doesn't know if she cares, but he loves her anyway.'

'It's so sad, that she can't see, that his love is true,'

'He's getting tired of her lies, and doesn't know what to do,'

'He loves her like crazy, but knows if she can't see,'

'He may just give up on her, and-"

"Give her up for me?"She finished his song.

Inuyasha looked up at the door and saw deep, dark dreamy eyes staring at him. He felt his throat constrict. It was Kagome Higurashi, one of the smartest girls in school, and to him, one of the most natural beauties. She had dark chocolate colored hair with large, mesmerizing brown eyes.

He blinked as she smiled, he didn't hear what she had said though. "Can you repeat that, Kagome?" He asked.

She inhaled deeply and went to him. "You said,

'He loves her like crazy, but knows that if she can't see,' 'He may just give up on her and"then I said,'give her up for me.'

He chuckled, as he understood what she had said and she sat down beside him. She stared at him with a bright smile, her dimples pronounced beautifully in her cheeks. "Inuyasha?" She called after a while.

He looked at her. "Yes, Kagome?"

"Is something wrong?" She asked, knowing that the guy in the song was him, and the girl was Kikyo. It was quite obvious to her that Inuyasha was gloomy, and she could understand why, since she had heard the entire conversation he had had with Kikyo. It was the same like always. Maybe it was just coincidence that she was always around to hear Inuyasha ask Kikyo to listen to his songs and Kikyo's rejection, or fate.

"Huh?" He blinked and thought deeply for a moment. "No," He lied. "Nothing's wrong."

"If you're sure," She said while standing up.

"I am, thanks for asking." He replied discreetly staring at her lithe figure.

"Okay," She walked out of the room, but popped her head back in after a moment. "Inuyasha?" She called.

He looked down into her deep, dark dreamy eyes. "Yes?"

"I just wanted to tell you, that that was a very beautiful song, you should write it down and keep it."

"Thank you," He smiled softly. He was pleased to have someone besides his parents and teachers appreciate his talent.

"You're welcome!" She said as she walked away.

'Kagome's really kind of cute and sexy with those brown eyes,' he thought as he watched Kagome leave. He flushed a bit at the thought and began plucking at his guitar strings.

That's all for chapter 1: Listen to Me. I hope you all enjoyed it, there's a lot more to come. All the chapters are already finished except for the 3 I mentioned before, but they'll be done way before I have to post them.

Please Read and Review!
