I couldn't stop shaking. It was like I was freezing cold except that the house was a comfortable sixty-five degrees. I swallowed and stared blankly at the floor, not really seeing it.
I heard their quiet murmuring behind me but I ignored it. Finally I heard Miroku speak up. "Kagome? Are you alright?"
Was he serious? I was tempted to laugh. The question sounded so funny at a time like this. But I kept my face impassive. What a stupid question, I thought to myself quietly.
"What a stupid question Miroku…" Inuyasha sneered.
Sango finally made her way over to me and rubbed my back in a circular motion with her palm. "Kagome? Kagome can you hear me? Your really starting to freak us out you now. Please say something…anything." Still staring at the floor I opened my mouth and I felt everyone lean forward on their seats but I soon closed it and went back to hyperventilating. Sango shook her head and sighed and told the others, "this isn't working."
I heard Inuyasha growl as he got up and he started pacing in front of his windows. "Of course this isn't fucking working! Do you blame her!?"
"Inuyasha please try and stay clam. Kagome needs all of us to stay level headed."
Inuyasha whipped around and glared at Sango. "Level headed? LEVEL HEADED? Are you fucking kidding me?" He marched over to Sango and Miroku got up in front of his girlfriend and held Inuyasha at arms length. "How in the hell can you expect me to stay level headed at a time like this?!"
Sango looked like Inuyasha had physically lashed out and hit her and Miroku looked like he was about to slug him. "Inuyasha I will admit you have every reason to be mad but that doesn't mean you need to take it out on Sango who's only trying to help." Miroku pushed Inuyasha's chest so he would stop growling at Sango. "So back off!"
Inuyasha looked like he'd been slapped and he raised his fist at Miroku and I decided enough was enough. I stood up and grabbed Inuyasha raised fist and I pushed him back even farther. "STOP IT! ENOUGH!" Inuyasha's eyes threatened red and I grabbed his face with both of my hands and forced him to look at me. "Enough.." I said quietly.
Inuyasha's growling became quieter and his eyes finally seeped back to being their normal and familiar gold. I gave him a weak smile and he exhaled loudly.
We all sat there in silence for a few minutes before Miroku's voice broke though the silence. "What are we going to do?"
I swallowed and looked up into Inuyasha's eyes and he merely shook his head. I glanced over at Sango who was frowning at the ground and I looked back over to Miroku who was staring at me with sadness in his eyes and I told them the truth.
"I don't know. But were going to figure it out and its all going to be okay. I promise." I lied. I bit my lower lip so I wouldn't cry and raised a trembling and shaky hand on my growing stomach and the little human that was growing safe inside of me.
What the hell were we going to do?
