Author's note: hey, I'm back with the sequel. I know it's been a little bit since I ended 'Are You Falling for Your Best Friend, Inuyasha?' and that's because I had to check up on my other ones. I do believe this is going to be another long story, like the first, so… yeah. Fun. Lots of it. Lol, I hope you enjoy this story as much as the first!
FYI: I don't own Inuyasha, but any characters that I have made up, are, of course, mine.
Kagome just finished packing her bag for Senior week. They were leaving tomorrow, which was Sunday, and going the beach which was about five hours away, and staying the whole week. Kagome needed to go shopping with Sango and Amaterasu, to get the bathroom necessities for the girls. They were all making the decisions about what shampoo to bring, soap, etc, etc. She was going to pick Sango and Amaterasu up, and they were going to travel like normal people today. Kagome packed her swimsuit, of course, the one that Sango made her pack for the camping trip so long ago. She packed other things, which included her night clothes, and day clothes, among her cell phone, computer, and ipod. They were driving down together in Inuyasha's truck, and Amaterasu had Chiyo staying over Kagome's and Sango had Kohaku doing the same. Mrs. Higurashi also offered to help with Rin, too.
Kagome sighed, setting her duffel bag on the floor by her bed. She grabbed her purse, and hurried down the stairs, and found her mother in the kitchen, drinking lemonade, and she heard Shippo and Sota outside riding bikes and running around. She waved to her mother and hurried outside to her car.
She stopped at Sango's house, and Sango came out with her wallet and cell phone, and then she went to Amaterasu's and Amaterasu was waiting for them on her front porch. She looked utterly bored and unhappy, but when she saw them she smiled and waved. Kagome didn't even need to stop, because Amaterasu appeared in the backseat of the car.
Kagome smiled. "Okay, guys, we're off to by things for the trip tomorrow. Will we need to buy our own food?" she asked.
Sango shrugged. "Could could just buy it up there. But we will need travel food."
Amaterasu smiled and nodded. "Definitely. We don't want to stop on our way down. It just takes out the fun of staying cooped up in a car together," Amaterasu joked.
Sango rolled her and smiled back at Amaterasu. "Not what I meant, and you know it."
Amaterasu smiled at Sango. "I know." Amaterasu sighed and sat back in the seat. "I'm so glad to be getting a week off from everything."
"Me too," Kagome said.
"Kagome, you're not as busy as me," Amaterasu told her. "I have so many people looking for me and asking me what to do about certain situations, I need a break. People are starting to piss me off. Especially the Momster."
The Momster was what Amaterasu liked to call her mother, Mayonaka, because she was horrible. Mayonaka had done nothing to protect Amaterasu.
"What'd she do this time?" Kagome asked. She looked at Amaterasu from the mirror.
Amaterasu sighed. "Nothing much. She just keeps talking to Kuromeru, Hisoka, and Yoru. She keeps bringing Raidon into the house too. Next time I see him in my house I'll beat the bastard. I think she might be planning something."
"But you could stop her. And you have Jurou's parents keeping track of everything for you next week, right?" Sango asked. She turned around in her seat to look at Amaterasu.
Amaterasu nodded. "Yeah, so it'll be fine for that week. Mayonaka won't do anything while I'm gone. She's too weak to hit Harumi and Makoto." Amaterasu said the last sentence with a smug sneer.
"So don't worry about it until you get back," Kagome said. "Just have fun this next week. That's what Senior week is about. Having some fun before going to college."
Amaterasu nodded. "Exactly what I'm doing."
Sango smiled at her. "Good."
Amaterasu smiled back.
At the supermarket, they grabbed a cart, and directly headed for the bathroom supply aisle. Amaterasu found a ocean breeze smelling shampoo and suggested it to the other girls, who agreed. They bought the conditioner of the same smell, and put it in the cart, as Sango came back with soap and shaving cream.
They then went over to the snack aisle and put chips and soda into the cart, so if they get hungry at all in the car, they could eat.
"If the guys want anything they better get their own food," Sango said. "This is ours."
Amaterasu laughed. "I don't think the guys buy their bathroom necessities together like us girls," Amaterasu pointed out. "I don't think they'll buy snacks together then."
Sango and Kagome smiled. They turned the corner, and Sango bumped into Miroku.
"Hey," Amaterasu said, a little annoyed. "I didn't even smell you. What are you doing here?" she demanded.
Miroku held up a pack of soda and a couple of bags of candy. "I'm here to pick up my own snacks for the ride."
Amaterasu put her hands on her hips. "Why couldn't I smell you?" she asked. She seemed a little annoyed about that.
"Because I'm wearing cologne. Sango and I have a date later," he told her.
Amaterasu smiled. "Aww, that's cute. One last date alone before we all get stuck together. That's a good idea. Maybe I'll bring it up to Jurou."
Sango smiled. "Yeah," she said. She kissed Miroku. "See you later," she told him.
He smiled. "Yeah. Later," he mumbled. He walked away.
"Aww," Amaterasu said. "That's really cute."
Sango smiled as she watched him walk away. "Hmm?" She slowly looked at Amaterasu.
Amaterasu rolled her eyes, smiled, and looked at Kagome. "She's not even listening to me." Amaterasu shook her head, still smiling.
Kagome smiled at Amaterasu. "Okay, let's go. Time to check out." She pushed the cart to the checkout line, followed by Amaterasu and Sango, who were bickering back and forth. Kagome shook her head and smiled.
"I was listening to you!" Sango told Amaterasu. Her hands were on her hips.
"Then what did I say, sunshine?" Amaterasu asked, smiling, her midnight blue eyes glowing with amusement.
Sango tensed. "Uh." She crossed her arms this time and looked away from Amaterasu.
Amaterasu's smile widened. "Thought so."
Sango turned, looking back at Amaterasu with a big smile on her face. She pushed her shoulder when she walked ahead of her, still smiling.
When they got out of the store, they went out to eat. They went to a small café, and hung out and talked while they ate.
"So I can't wait until we go tomorrow," Sango said. "We'll have to sleep in one room, and the guys in the other."
Kagome nodded. "Right. That'll be fun."
Amaterasu smiled. "Yes it will. Because we'll all go to the beach and hang out for a whole week."
Kagome smiled at her.
Sango smiled too. "Guys, we should go back to our own houses and finish packing. Who's gonna take the bathroom necessities? I'll take the snacks."
Amaterasu raised her hand slightly. "I'll take the bathroom things. I have more room in my bag."
"That's because your duffel bag can fit a body in it," Sango stated. She looked to Kagome. "We're all meeting at your house and Inuyasha's, yeah?"
Kagome nodded. "Yeah, Inuyasha's car can fit everything in it easily."
They nodded. When they were all done eating, they got up, paid, and left. Kagome dropped Sango off first, then Amaterasu. When she got home herself, she helped her mother clean, then played videogames with Sota and Shippo. It was the last day she was going to be in her house for a week, and she wanted to spend time with them as much as possible. She helped her grandfather plant flowers and work in his garden. Then after she helped her mother make dinner, and they all ate, she went upstairs and got ready for bed, because they were leaving early tomorrow. At about six in the morning. Before she fell asleep she admired her engagement ring. She smiled at it before falling asleep.
****Author's note: hey guys, so I had a poll of the name of this, but then I decided against it. I'm going with the name now, because I can incorporate it into the story. I'm so glad I can post this so quickly, I thought it'd be a little bit longer before I posted this.
