A warm summer sunlight beamed down on the girl as she ran towards her friends. Her onyx black hair swayed with all of her movements her cerulean eyes looking rather angry yet exasperated from the running she was doing. She tried to pick up her pace as she saw her friends up ahead, talking and giggling about the random things they could think of.

"H-Hey, wait up!" She yelled, heaving and panting, trying to catch up with.

Her friends Ayame, Rin and Sango all turned around, and finnaly stopped, looking at her.

"You...guys," She started weakly. "Are sooooooo...mean." She said, collapsing to the ground on her knees.

"We're sorry Kagome, we didn't hear you!" Rin said innocently.

"Didn't...hear me...my...ass..." Kagome panted, face-planting the grass.

She heard snickering and giggling to the left of her.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah. Har, har, har." She mocked, standing back up again.


The four girls walked over and sat near the ancient tree that had been there since the school had beed built. They bathed in the small beams of light, coming through the leaves, waiting for a pervert, two idiots who can't seem to stop fighting, and someone emotionless, to come and give them details of where they were going this year.

Kagome worn black and green tank-tops and knee-lenght capris, with her hair flowing to her lower back. Sango had on a dark pink halter top with capris too, and had her hair up in a low ponytail. Rin and Ayame had on V-neck shirts, only Rin's was orange, and Ayame's was white. The had on booty shorts, while Rin's hair was down and going to her lower back, and Ayame's was up in the usual pigtails.

"Man...those Graduation Uniforms made my nose all stuffy..." Ayame whined, rubbing her nose, a sneeze followed after.

"Well, at least we all graduated, an get the next four months of vacation..." Sango said, laying down on the soft grass, spreading her arms out over the ground.

"But guess what we get to do for three months..." Kagome asked, looking at her friends slyly. "ANNUAL CAMPING TRIP!" They all squeeled, throwing their hands into the air.

"A thing we've done since the 4th grade!" Rin said bubbly.

"Well, it's a good thing we've got three demons as best friends to carry all the stuff, or we'd be screwed...not that i'm not strong enough..." Ayame said laughing.

"Hey, what about Miro-."

"From what I heard from Sesshomaru, the boys are taking care of everything, and where we're headed for the camping trip." Rin said, cutting Sango off, while munching on a cookie.

"So, technically...we don't have to do anything?" Ayame asked, grabbing one of Rin's cookies.

Rin shook her head 'no'.

"Yeah, they said they wanted to go to BonEaters Lake, up in Sendai, or something..." Sango replied.

"Why do the men insist on doing everything? We can help to!" Rin exclaimed.

"Yeah." They all replied simultaneously.

"Ok, how come I never got any word of this?" Kagome asked, grabbing a for a cookie also.

All three of the looked at Kagome. "Because you never pay ANY attention to anything anyone ever has to say when it's important." They all said at the same time.

Kagome looked at them with a grumbling look and looked at the cookie as if it were the most interesting thing in the world. "Jeez...you don't have to bite my head off..." She said, taking a bite of the cookie.

"Poor cookie..." Rin said quietly.

"But, didn't you say it was gonna be in Sendai?" She asked.

They shook their head 'yes', a little annoyed at the fact that they just said that, and it went completely over her head.

"Man! You know that's gonna take 5-6 hours! And I don't want to sit in a car with a pervert, two idiots who fight all the time, and someone who doesn't talk!" She said, litterally whining.

"Wait, I thought no talking was a good thing..." Rin said, eating another cookie.

"Your right..." She said, putting her finger on her mouth.

There was a brief pause between the group. Ayame was about to say something until she saw four figures standing behind Kagome. The other three gulped as Kagome had no clue as to what was behind her.

"Now Kagome..." A voice said into Kagome's left ear softly, making Kagome flinch and her heart skip a beat. "Why would you call you best friends a pervert and idiots?" The voice continued

The hairs on her neck were standing up as his hot breath trickled down her neck.

'Inuyasha...' She thought.

"PERVERT!" Sango screamed.

*Smack.*

*Thud*

"Owww..." Another voice grumbled.

(A/N: Ahhh...same old Miroku...yet, never gets old...)


"Frikin' perv..." Sango grumbled, her arms crossed across her chest, sitting as far away from Miroku as possible.

Inuyasha, Kouga and Sesshomaru sat down next to the girls, while Miroku layed dazed, over in the grass across from them, with a red hand-print on his cheek.

Inuyasha had on a red dress shirt, with it un-buttoned, and a wife-beater tee under it. His long silver hair was pulled back into a low ponytail, with his triangular doggy ears sticking out from the top of his head. The golden-amber complextion of his eyes shimmered in the daylight.

Miroku, Kouga and Sesshomaru had the same attire.( Except for the ears and hair.) Miroku had on a purple dress shirt, with his hair pulled back at the nape of his neck. His deep navy-blue eyes kept a direct stare at Sango's chest. Kouga had on a brown dress shirt, with his hair up in a high ponytail. His icy, electiric-blue eyes stared out at the sky, as if he could read it. Sesshomaru had on a silvery-gray dress shirt on that complimented his long silver hair, his cold, golden eyes holding boredom.

As Inuyasha sat down next to Kagome, he noticed that she was a little flustered, much to his pleasure.

"So how much money do we all have?" Rin asked, taking a drink of her Sprite.

"Do not worry Rin. Kouga, Inuyasha, Miroku and I, have the money under control." Sesshomaru said calmly, looking and Rin.

"Ok." Rin said in a small voice.

"So, we heard you chose Boneater's Lake. Why'd ya change the spot? I thought you guys wanted to go back up to Hokkaido?" Ayame asked.

The boys looked at her for a moment.

"There's more forest out in Sendai, and it's a shorter drive." Inuyasha said, scratching the top of his head.

"And plus the lake is bigger than the one in Aomori." Miroku added.

"But what about the money?"

"Yeah, and do you guys have everything ready?"

"Why can't we help?"

"Girls." Sesshomaru said, looking at Kagome, Sango, Ayame and Rin.

They looked at Sesshomaru.

"Don't worry about anything we have it all under control. All you have to do is come with us to the store, pick out what you want, and we'll handle the rest. Got it?" He asked, looking at them seriously.

They nodded in agreement quickly.

Kagome closed her eyes, and looked down. "Hey guys, I have to get home and pack, before my Mom, Grampa and Souta leave for the summer." She said, standing up.

"That's right." Sango said, standing up, Kagome looking at her.

"Where are you going, Sango?" She asked, Sango walking up to her. "I'm gonna help you pack. Where else?" Kagome's eyes lit up. "Oh! It's fine, Sango. I can do it myself. It's ok. Really." She said, Sango looking at her.

"Are you sure?" Sango asked.

"Yes. I'm sure, but thank you, Sango." Kagome smiled.

"Ok, we'll see you tomorrow, Kagome." Sango said, hugging her before she left.

"Inuyasha, are you coming?" She asked, looking at him.

"Wait...coming where?" He asked a litte confused.

"Your my ride home, duh?" She said giggling.

"Oh, sorry! I forgot..." He said rubbing the back of his head.

"Of coarse you forgot..." She said, walking towards the parking lot

"So, we'll see you all at 11:30, at the store, tommorow?" Kagome asked everyone, before her and Inuyasha left.

"Yeah." They all answered, waving at the two.

"Ok. See you guys later!" Kagome said, heading towards the parking lot.


"So...why do you need to get home again?" Inuyasha asked, looking at Kagome, while starting his SUV.

"I forgot to pack. The exams had kept me up and busy, so I couldn't do anything. This is the only time I can pack everything and be done." She confessed, hanging her head down low.

"That's what I thought..." He laughed, getting into his car.

Kagome got into the car also, watching him, her face red. Inuyasha pulled out of the student parking lot, and got onto the highway, making small talk with Kagome. They would laugh and joke, Inuyasha flirting a bit.

Then Kagome's favorite song came on.

"OOO! Turn it up!" She said, hearing her favorite song from an anime.

Release! The dream that's engraved in my heart, leave even the future behind
This limitless, yet meaningless power
Sparkles with light with my feelings at the distance, preceding it!

Kagome smiled and let the rest of the song played, and they stayed quiet.

"Oh, god." Inuyasha said frightened. His expression was one of grave fear and horror as he looked at the road, gripping the steering wheel tightly.

"What? What's wrong?" She asked, getting a little scared herself.

"I...forgot Sesshomaru and Rin..." He said, banging his head on the steering wheel, making the horn beep.

My eyes got big.

'That's right...we totally forgot about them! But, wouldn't it be their fault for not saying anything?' She asked myself.

"Wait. It wouldn't be our fault. They didn't say anything, so we're good." She said, repeating her thoughts, but trying to make him a little more eased. It seemed to have worked when she saw his face relax.

"I guess your right, but he's gonna be on pissed off prissy boy..." He said, turning down their street.

She started laughing, to what he called Sesshy. (Sorry for all you Sesshy fans out there!)

"Rin will be alright. She'd be happy to walk home with Sesshomaru with her..." She said, pulling into his driveway.

He parked the car, and hopped out. Kagome pulled her backpack out, and put it onto her shoulders. They walked accross the street, and onto her porch. She unlocked the door, and walked in to the kitchen, with Inuyasha behind hot on her heels. Looking at the counter, she saw a note with green lettering, and picked it up:

~x~x~X~x~x~

Kagome,

Me, souta, and Grandpa have left now. You obviously know where we are, so I hope you have a nice trip, and wonderful summer! We'll see you when we get back!

~Love, Mom, Souta, and Gramps

~x~x~X~x~x~

"I guess they already left..." She said, putting the note down.

"That's right. You guys won a cruise to Hawaii, but only they went. Why didn't you go with them?" Inuyasha said, setting his bag on the ground.

"Well, I wanted to go camping with you guys, and...all..." She said, rubbing her arm, and looking away.

"Besides, I wanna spend time with everyone, before College! And I didn't want to break the tradition!" She said, running up to her room.

"Hey...wait for me!" Inuyasha said, running after Kagome.

Kagome walked into her room, towards her closet with Inuyasha coming up the stairs hot on her heels. She pulled out her black duffle bag from gym, and threw it onto her bed, with Inuyasha coming in.

"So, what do you want me to do?" He asked, sitting on her bed.

"What do you mean?" Kagome asked, going to her closet.

"I mean...what do you want me to pack. I came to help you so you can get done faster." He said, looking inside the duffle bag.

'You could fit a body in here...' Inuyasha thought creepily.

"Hmmm...you can start by taking all of my tank-tops, shorts, jeans, t-shirts, at least 2 hoodies, and a few sweatpants, folding them, and putting them in the bag." She said, pulling out a red tank-top from her closet, black shorts from her dresser, and walking to her bathroom.

"Is that all?" He asked.

"For now. I'm gonna take a quick shower, and help you after." She said closing the bathroom door.

"Uh...ok..." He repied, heat coming to his cheeks as he heard the water running, walking over to her closet.

"Tank-tops, t-shirts, shorts, jeans, 2 hoddies, and sweatpants." He repeated to himself.

He grabbed pink, purple, lime green, dark red, blue, yellow, orange, brown, black, white, and peacock-looking blue tank-tops and shirts, and threw them onto her bed. Then, he grabbed a blood red hoddie and a lavender purple hoodie from off the hangers. He walked over to her dresser, and opened one, to find shorts, and jeans in it. He threw a bunch of the shorts, and a few of the jeans onto her bed, and moved onto the next drawer. He then came to one particular drawer... and he looked at it for the fraction of a second, before shutting it. Hard. He could feel the blood rushing to his cheeks, as he turned around, and sat on the bed.

The duffle bag was pretty big, and could hold at least 3 1/2 month's worth of cloths, but only need 2 1/2 months worth. Then, he heard the water stop. A few seconds passed, until the door opened, revealing a Kagome with a short towel wrapped around her , and her hair cascading to her hips.

"Hey-Uhh...Inuyasha...can you get out for a minute or two?" She asked, looking down, while a tint of red was coming to her face.

"Oh! Y-y-yeah...sure." He replied, walking towards the door.

He closed the door behind him and walked downstairs. Sitting on the couch, he put a hand on his forehead. He looked at the clock, and it read, 5:15.

'We've been here that long? Man...Sesshomaru and Rin should be home now...' He thought to himself.

Inuyasha looked around the very familiar room, sighed and then closed his eyes.


Flashback:

Inuyasha, 6 years old; Kagome, 5 years old.

A small boy with long silver hair stood in front of his mother, whose back was turned, reading her book silently. He scuffled his feet of a moment and tugged on his mother's sleeve of her shirt.

"Hey, mom?" Inuyasha asked.

"Yes dear?" Izayoi replied, closing her book and looking down at her son, smiling happily.

"Can I stay the night at Kagome's house?" He asked, looking up at his mom. "Kagome said she had gotten the new game on her DS and I wanted to play it with her. So we wanted to spend the night with each other."

Izayoi looked at her son."As long as Mrs. Akita says it's alright, it's fine with me." she said, smiling at her son.

"Yes!" Inuyasha yelled, getting the phone to call Kagome.

~x~x~X~x~x~

After talking with parents, Inuyasha stayed the night with Kagome.

*Ding *Dong

"I'm coming!" A little girl yelled.

The door swung pen, to reveal a little girl, with purple pj's on, and a piece of pizza in her hands. She had long black hair to her back, cerulean blue eyes and an excited look on her face.

"Inuyasha! You're here! Hi, Mrs. Izayoi!" Kagome said, welcoming her guests into her house. "Hey, mom! Inuyasha, and Mrs. Izayoi are here!" Kagome called. "Come on, Inuyasha! Bring your stuff to my room!" Kagome smiled, bringing him up the stairs and to her room.

"Ok."

They cilmbed up the stairs, and into Kagome's bedroom.

The women giggled and greeted each other with hugs and smiles.

"Izayoi." Akita said.

"Yes, Akita?" She answered.

"I can already see them together. They may not see it...but I do..." She said, walking into the kitchen, with Izayoi following behind.

"I can too...You know, Kagome is the only person, aside from that...other boy , who didn't run away from Inuyasha, and is his friend." Izayoi said, sitting down at the table with Akita.

"Ahh, I start of young love..." Akita said dream-like.

"Yes..."

"Mom!" Inuyasha yelled.

"Yes, dear?"

"I wanna go home!"

" I was only joking around!"

Inuyasha came running down the stairs, with Kagome following behind.

"He asked me what I wanted to do, and said that we we're gonna play with my dolls, braid his hair, and paint his toe nails, but I was only joking around!" Kagome said, her hands waving around frantically. "And like I would do that stuff!" Kagome huffed.

The mothers laughted a bit.

"Inuyasha, she was just playing a joke on you." Izayoi said.

"Oh...but now, I can play a joke on her!"

Inuyasha started chasing after Kagome around the house.

"What did I tell you? Young Love." Akita said, pouring tea into two cups.

"We'll just have to sit back and watch."

End of Flashback


Inuyasha sat up, to the sound of foot steps, coming down the stairs. Kagome walked down the stairs, with the red tank top, and black shorts on. "You can come back up now." She said, going back up the stairs.

"Ok." He responded.

'I must have dazed off for a bit...' Inuyasha thought, rubbing his eyes, and smoothing out his hair.

He helped fold her clothes, and put them in the bag, while putting the rest of her things in it. She told him she needed Jolly Rancher lollypops when we went to the store, or she'd die. So, he told her 'alright'.

After packing all of her stuff, they ate Ramen, Inuyasha getting the bigger half, and watched, 'Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader'. It came on a few times, so they tested their skill. They kept shouting out answers, only to get a few right.

"I guess we're not that smart..." Kagome said, looking at him.

"I can see." He said, laughing a bit. Inuyasha then looked out a window, to see that the sun had gone down.

"Hey...I have to get back home." He said, getting up from the couch.

"Ok..." she said, witha little bit of sorrow in her voice.

Inuyasha though for a second.

'Is she sad that i'm leaving? And do I really want to leave her alone?' Inuyasha quickly changed his mind.

"Actually, do you want to stay at my house tonight? It's 9:00, and my mom wouldn't mind." He said, holding out his hand for her to grab.

"Sure!" She replied, taking his hand.

While pulling her off the couch, she tripped, making her fall onto his chest. Kagome looked up at him and smiled. "Thanks." She said, steadying herself in the floor. Kagome moved away from Inuyasha, then slipped on her slippers, and then walked outside.

To her suprise, it was freezing out.

"HOLY CRAP!" She yelled, running back into her warm house.

"What? What happened? What's wrong?" Inuyasha asked frantically.

"IT'S FRIKIN' COLD OUT THERE!" Kagome yelled, trying to warm her arms up.

Inuyasha replaced her hands with his hands, and started warming her up. He stopped, and then went into the closet next to the door, and grabbed a blue hoodie, and slipped it over her head.

Her head popped out of the top, and she pulled her hair through. "Thanks. Again." She said, patting him on his head.

"Am I your dog now?" He asked, picking her up, and throwing her over his shoulder.

"Yes-hey! Put me down!" She yelled.

"Nope." He said, walking out th door, and into the cold.

"Yes! Now put me down!" She yelled again.

"You know? It's weird...how the weather changed from hot to cold in a matter of a few hours..." He said, thinking about it for a minute.

"Don't try to change the subect! Put me down!" She said, pounding on his back.

"Nope" He replied.

"UGH! If I could sit you like a dog, you'd be in hell!" Kagome huffed, Inuyasha only laughing with a boom.

Inuyasha came to the door of his house and opened it.

"Hey, Mom. I'm home!" He yelled, closing the door, and walking into his house. The house was quiet for a moment until he heard a screeching voice.

"INUYASHA!" A female voice yelled back.

"Oh god...please help me..." I said, with my head hanging low.

"Well,that's what you get puppy..." Kagome said, trying to warm herself up.

"So, now i'm you dog?" He asked.

Kagome just nodded.

"Greaaaaat..." He replied.
