Chapter 4: Rehearsals

"Come on Guys! I have something to show you!" Kagome said, pulling everyone off the couch.

What is it Kagome?" Inuyasha asked.

"Remember this?" She asked, pulling back a bookshelf, revealing a doorway.

"Yes!" Inuyasha said, jumping up.

"We still owned this house when we moved so everything is still the same."

"Uh….what is it?" Miroku asked.

"My secret basement studio." She replied, nonchalant. Kagome punched in the code on the keypad next to the door. They heard a loud 'click' and the door swung open. The group went down the stairs to see Kagome's recording studio. Her dad and uncles built it for when she was little. Everything still worked. Kagome pulled Sesshomaru into the booth, after setting up the track. Miroku started it and Kagome looked at her friend. Her eyes were telling him to 'wing it'. Kagome sung first. ["Love Like This" Natasha Bedingfield (feat. Sean Kingston)]Sesshomaru Kagome both
Oh…Never find a love like thisOh…Never find a love like thisWe go back so far,swinging in your back yard,
all the things that we used to do.We were cool back in high school.ooh I really liked you,must have been your attitude.[Chorus:]That's why you keep on runningin and out of my mind.As the years they'll roll by,Baby, now I know whyI keep coming back to you.You're the only one that knows me,love it when you hold me,
never find a love like thisLet me hear you saynow I'll never be lonely,look at what you've shown me,never find a love like thisWell this life tried to keep us apartyou keep calling me back to your heartLet me hear you sayI'm so glad you found me,wrap your world around me,never find a love like this.All the guys tried to take me,
you're the one who saved me,I feel like I owe you my life.And as strange as it may seem,I'll go if you take me
I'm willing to sacrifice.[Chorus]'cause this life tried to keep us apart,you keep calling me back to your heart.Let me hear you say,aren't you glad you found me,wrap you all around me,never find a love like this.May never find a love, love, love a love like this,that still make me think about my middle school kiss.I sit here in this chair and I wishfor you not to leave me now.My friends they always told menot to make you my wife,man they was putting you down.And now they see we rolling,me and you, we strolling,they don't wanna come around.Let me hear you say,you're the only one that knows me,love it when you hold me,never find a love like this.Let me hear you say,now I'll never be lonely,look at what you've shown me,never find a love like this. When this life tries to keep us apart,you keep calling me back to your heart.Let me hear you say,I'm so glad you found me,wrap you all around me,never find a love like this,Oh… Never find a love like this…When this life tried to keep us apart,you keep calling me back to your heart;Let me hear you say,Oh… Never find a love like this.Oh… Never find a love like this

After they finish, everyone smiled. Kagome was grinning.

"Nice job for improv." She commented

"The connection wasn't broken then, even after all these years." Inuyasha said.

"Connection?" Sango asked

"They could always finish each other's sentences. Sing the same song, as if they wrote it together. Everything."

"Sing another Kags!" Sango said into the mic. Press track 6, Roku." Sesshomaru said. Sesshomaru looked at Kagome; it was his eyes that said 'wing it' this time. Kagome nodded and Sesshomaru started. "Lucky" Jason Mraz (feat. Colbie Caillat) Sesshomaru Kagome Both
Do you hear me,I'm talking to youAcross the water across the deep blue oceanUnder the open sky, oh my, baby I'm trying Boy I hear you in my dreams,I feel your whisper across the sea,I keep you with me in my heart.You make it easier when life gets hard. I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friendLucky to have been where I have beenLucky to be coming home againOoohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh oohThey don't know how long it takes, Waiting for a love like thisEvery time we say goodbye I wish we had one more kiss I'll wait for you I promise you, I will I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friendLucky to have been where I have beenLucky to be coming home againLucky we're in love every wayLucky to have stayed where we have stayedLucky to be coming home somedayAnd so I'm sailing through the seaTo an island where we'll meet You'll hear the music fill the airI'll put a flower in your hairThough the breezes through treesMove so pretty you're all I seeAs the world keeps spinning roundYou hold me right here right nowI'm lucky I'm in love with my best friendLucky to have been where I have beenLucky to be coming home againI'm lucky we're in love every wayLucky to have stayed where we have stayedLucky to be coming home somedayOoohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh oohOoooh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh.

After that song was finished, Kagome and Sesshomaru started laughing. Kagome gave him a kiss on the check as they laughed at hoe nothing has changed. They got out of the booth and listened to the tracks they had just recorded. They sang along, as if the lyrics were etched in their heads.

"Man, they are like, tied. They belong together, don't they?" Sango whispered to Miroku.

"Sango, do you want to sing a song with me?" Kagome asked, interrupting the hushed conversation.

"Sure! I don't know how it'll work, though."

"Just think about one special person, and how they make you feel, okay? I'll do the same, and see what we come up with." Kagome instructed, pulling Sango into the booth. She held up 3 fingers, signaling that track 3 was to be played.

"I'll start." Kagome said as the music started to play. "Chemicals React" Aly and AJ Kagome Sango Both

You make me feel out of my elementLike I'm walkin' on broken glassLike my worlds spinnin' in slow motionAnd you're movin' too fast[Chorus]Were you right, was I wrongWere you weak, was I strong, yeahBoth of us brokenCaught in a momentWe lived and we lovedAnd we hurt and we jumped, yeahBut the planets all alignedWhen you looked into my eyesAnd just like thatThe chemicals reactThe chemicals react.You make me feel out of my elementLike I'm drifting out to the seaLike the tides pullin' me in deeperMakin' it harder to breatheWe cannot deny, how we feel insideWe cannot deny[Chorus]Were you right, was I wrongWere you weak, was I strong, yeahBoth of us brokenCaught in a momentWe lived and we lovedAnd we hurt and we jumped, yeahBut the planets all alignedWhen you looked into my eyesAnd just like thatThe chemicals reactThe chemicals reactKaleidoscope of colorsTurning hopes on fire, sun is burning Shining down on both of us Don't let us lose it (don't let us lose it...)[Chorus]Were you right, was I wrongWere you weak, was I strong, yeahBoth of us brokenCaught in a momentWe lived and we lovedAnd we hurt and we jumped, yeah We livedWe lovedWe hurtwe jumpedWe're rightWe're wrongWe're weakWe're strongWe lived to loveBut the planets all aligned
When you looked into my eyesAnd just like thatWatch the chemicals reactAnd just like thatThe chemicals react(The chemicals react)

When the song ended Sango was grinning just as big as Kagome was. Kagome and Sango also had that connection. It seemed as if everybody who was around Kagome knew her well enough to finish her sentences, thoughts, even if they had just met.

"Okay! Let's do our 'Romeo and Juliet' songs"

"Okay, Us first!" Inuyasha said, going into the booth. The other guys followed and went to their instruments. Sesshomaru was the lead guitarist and lead vocals, Inuyasha was bass and side vocals, and Miroku was background vocals and drums. "Check Yes Juliet" Check yes Juliet Are you with me Rain is falling down on the sidewalk I won't go until you come outside Check yes Juliet kill the limbo I'll keep tossing rocks at your window There's no turning back for us tonight [Chorus:]Lace up your shoes Here's how we do Run baby run Don't ever look back They'll tear us apart if you give them the chance Don't sell your heart, don't say we're not meant to be Run baby run, forever will be You and me Check yes Juliet I'll be waiting Wishing wanting yours for the taking Just sneak out and don't tell a soul goodbye Check yes Juliet Here's the countdown: 3,2,1 you fall in my arms now They can change the locks, don't let them change your mind [Chorus] We're flying through the night We're flying through the night Way up high The view from here is getting better with you By my side Run baby run Don't ever look back They'll tear us apart if you give them the chance Don't sell your heart, don't say we're not meant to be Run baby run, forever will be Run baby run, don't ever look back They'll tear us apart if you give them the chance Don't sell your heart, don't say we're not meant to be Run baby run, forever will be You and me You and me.

When the guys finished, the loud cheering of the girls was too much for words. Sesshomaru said 'Thanks' quietly and put down his guitar. After the boys filed out of booth, the girls gave each one a hug.

"Okay, your turn." Inuyasha said, turning to Kagome.

"Okay, it's a little rough, but I put it on track 9." She replied, going into the booth.

"When You Really Love Someone"
"I'm a woman, lord knows it's hard I need a real man to give me what I need Sweet attention, love and tenderness When it's real it's unconditional, I'm telling y'all [Chorus:] Cause a man, just ain't a man, If he aint' man enough To love you when you're right, Love you when you're wrong Love you when you're weak, Love you when you're strong Take you higher When the world got you feelin low.

Sesshomaru wasn't surprised at Kagome's talent; she was always very musically verbal. Always good at making up songs and playing music. No, he was only impressed with the emotion that she held when she sang. Everyone was congratulating her when her mother, Sakura, came downstairs.

"I should've known you would be down here," She said, "How have you been boys? It certainly has been a while."

"Yeah, it has. These are our friends, Miroku and Sango." Inuyasha replied.

After all the introductions were made, Sakura finally conveyed her message; it was time for everyone to go home. The goodbyes were made and dinners were eaten, Kagome went to her laptop to check her email and her Friendsverse, reminiscing on her great day back where she belonged.
