AN: This is a story I wrote many years ago. I have decided to do a total overhaul on it and change up the plot. Let me know what you think about it. Review once you are done reading! Now enjoy…
"Kagome, I am really starting to worry about your grades." A concerned teacher informed a sullen teenager. Kagome Higurashi had just spent the last five minutes being lectured by her precalculus professor. It was a conversation they seemed to have each month.
"I know Professor Haruna, but I do try. It's just no matter how hard I study the material, I never fully understand it. Why does math have to be so confusing? Couldn't it be simpler? I know it would make my life and the lives of a lot of other people easier to bear." The young brunette commented. She could never comprehend math well. To her, it was just a jumble of lines, shapes, numbers, and symbols. Nothing she could understand by the way her grades kept slowing declining.
"That's what I have been noticing for the past few months Kagome and I have come up with a brilliant idea. You need a tutor.
"A tutor?" The very thought of a tutor made Kagome squirm in her seat. Weren't tutors only for the extremely dumb? Was her future in precalculus that dismal that Professor Haruna though a tutor was her only salvation?
"Yes a tutor." Professor Haruna reiterated slowly. "It is not the end of the world, Kagome. Needing a tutor is not something to be embarrassed about so wipe that grim expression off your face." Kagome was quick with a rebuttal. However, her words were cut short by a knock on the closed classroom door.
"Perfect, he is right on time."
Kagome's grim expression turned to one of confusion. Who was Professor Haruna expecting? Kagome was under the impression that this meeting over her academic handicap was just between herself and her teacher. What if it was her mother? He would be furious to find out that her precalculus grades were still subpar!
"He? He who?" Kagome squeaked.
"Your tutor." Professor Haruna responded. Kagome breathed a sigh relief as long as it wasn't her mother. She now watched with peaked interest as Professor Haruna beckoned "her tutor" to enter the room. Who would her academic savior be? Hopefully, he was gorgeous. It would definitely make learning more worthwhile.
Instead, Kagome's heart skipped a beat when the scum of the earth passed the threshold. "Inuyasha Takahashi" Kagome screeched with disgust. She quickly turned in her seat and bombarded Professor Haruna with a pleading look.
"Is there not anyone else? Anyone, but him" Kagome dramatically asked with a quivering finger pointed in Inuyasha's direction.
"What a warm welcome Higurashi." Inuyasha rewarded Kagome with an arrogant smirk as he took a seat beside her.
Kagome huffed at Inuyasha's closeness. She knew what he was doing. He was pushing her buttons for a laugh. She never understood why he found her anger so amusing. It was a sick game to him; a game that she constantly let him win.
"Kagome calm down." Professor Haruna cracked a ruler against her desk to break the tension between the bickering pair. "Inuyasha is my best precalculus student. He has tutored many students from Cs to As. He can really help you learn this material." Professor Haruna could tell from the sick expression on Kagome's face that she was not getting to her. However, she had one more ace up her sleeve that would help to seal the deal.
"If you refuse, I will have to recommend you sit out for the track season."
"No!" Kagome exclaimed. Track was her ticket to a great college. She could not let anything jeopardize her future. If several hours of torture a few days a week meant staying on the track team, Kagome would do it. She had to. There was no other choice.
"Inuyasha is fine."
Professor Haruna congratulated Kagome on her wise decision. She then launched into the logistics of their tutor partnership. However, Kagome did not hear a thing. All she could focus on was the man casually lounging beside her. How did she end up in this situation? How did her ex-boyfriend become her new precalculus tutor?
