"Come in," Kouga said and stepped to the side to let her in. Ayame nodded and walked in. Kouga closed the door and followed her. He sat next to her on his bed.

"Kouga, I care about you a lot and I doubt either of us saw this coming, but…" Ayame started and wrung her fingers again.

"What?" Kouga asked. He turned to face her more and she turned away.

"Just listen to me when I say this, okay? Please don't think any less of me when this is over. And please don't be mad."

Kouga was on his feet in a second, "How can I not be mad?"

"What?" Ayame asked.

"I know what's going on Ayame. I'm not stupid," he said.

Ayame felt the tears coming. He hated her. It wasn't even her fault and he hated her…

"You're breaking up with me!" Kouga said. Ayame's head snapped up. Kouga glared at her.

"What? No, I'm not! …Unless, you want to."

"Of course I don't!"

"So, you don't hate me?" Ayame asked.

"If you're not breaking up with me then what are you doing?" Kouga asked her.

"I need to know you won't be mad with me first," Ayame said slowly.

"Nothing could be worse than you breaking up with me Ayame. Please tell me what's wrong," Kouga said and knelt in front of her. Ayame opened her mouth to speak…


Sango, Miroku, Kagome, and Inuyasha sat in the girl's apartment. Kagome had told Inuyasha about the bracelet and what it was for. He had thanked her with a well-timed make out session in her room and that's all it was. Sango and Miroku were leaving their wedding planning until after college. Sango wanted a long engagement anyways.

The phone rang. Kagome got up and answered it.


"Kagome?" Rin asked from the other line.

"Rin! It's so nice to hear fro you!" Kagome said. The other three went back to what they were doing.

"I have big, big, big, big news! 'I'm married!" Rin sang. Inuyasha choked. Kagome froze.

"What?" was all Kagome could say.

"Remember when I told you about Sesshy and I? Well, he flew out here last night and we eloped! Aren't you happy for us?"

"Super happy."

"That doesn't sound super happy."

"Well, don't you think you're rushing things? How well do you know each other?"

"Kagome, just because you haven't seen us together, doesn't mean we don't care for each other. I wish you could come visit! Speaking of witch, had Inuyasha-kun proposed yet? He should. You're not getting any younger, you know? "

"Thanks for that Rin. I'll come visit as soon as I can. Good luck with your marriage," Kagome said and hung up. She went back to her seat next to Inuyasha in a daze. Inuyasha was in a similar state.

Her sister had gotten married and not told her until after. She didn't even call to see what she thought about it…

just because you haven't seen us together, doesn't mean we don't care for each other…

Kagome sighed. She really hadn't seen them together, yet. Come to think of it, Rin had barely seen her relationship with Inuyasha except for the break up. But, Kagome cared deeply for her hanyou… even if he may not know it.

Kagome smiled and slipped her hand in Inuyasha's. As long as Sesshoumaru treated her right and Rin was happy, Kagome was happy.

Just then, Sango's phone went off. She checked it.

A text from Ayame.

I told him and he doesn't hate me! He loves me! You and Kagome were right! I might be staying in the guy's dorm tonight ;P

Sango turned to Kagome and smiled. Kagome breathed a sigh of relief. Everything was going to be fine. No better than fine. PERFECT…



Well, there's the end!


So what have we learned?

Sango and Miroku are engaged.

Kouga and Ayame have one on the way.

Inuyasha may propose to Kagome in the winter or early spring. ;)


Rin and Sesshy are married.

Have a nice night or morning everyone! Maybe I'll see you in my next fic! Smooches for all except that homeless guy peeking through your window to look at the computer. Oops! You just missed him…
