I do not own Inuyasha or any of the characters.

Enjoy, review. And thank you for reading my other fics xoxo


Edit: I'm such a dillhole. I forgot about the spacing when I uploaded them so I'm going back and editing each chap before I get too far in and people start burning me alive D: It'll be much easier to read now if you intend to reread or are reading for the first time :)

It was early morning. Dawn had just cracked as the sun was slowly rising. Atop a small grassy hill, underneath a big tree hovering a mysterious shallow lake that extended as far as the eye could see, there was a little girl. She was seven years old with long black hair tied back with a white scarf, big brown eyes and a blue dress. The little girl was sad and alone, crying and holding her knee. She had scraped it and was in a lot of pain. Suddenly, someone jumped out of the tree. He was dressed in a red sweat suit and a blue baseball cap. He had white hair and amber eyes. He looked like he was at least 11 and she thought he was an angel.

'This girl. Who is she? And…I smell blood…Is she injured?' he thought to himself.

She stared at him in awe as he silently approached her, took the scarf out her hair and wrapped it around her knee. He then proceeded to wipe away her tears and she noticed his clawed hands. She grabbed his hand and held it to her cheek. Something in her heart told her he was going to leave her by herself on that hill. She stared into his amber eyes with her glossy brown ones. Kindness met weakness as they studied each other.

"Don't go," she pleaded, with a sniffle, about to cry again. He didn't know what to say. He knew he couldn't tell her 'no', especially after her eyes pierced into his soul like that. It was as though as much as she needed him there, he needed to be with her.

"Okay. I'll stay with you for a bit." he replied softly. Her eyes glowed with happiness and she gave him a bright smile. It was like the clouds breaking away to let the sun shine after a thunderstorm. She was a fascinating girl.

"Stay here for a second." He ordered as he jumped back into the tree. Her eyes followed as he leaped and she stared into the big tree above her head. She was amazed he could jump so high. She wasn't certain if he was an angel, but she knew he wasn't human and she didn't care at all. The boy jumped back down with two apples.

"The best ones are at the top of the tree." He told her as he handed her one.

"Thank you" She said sweetly and bit into the apple. It was sweet and juicy. This was the only place she could ever taste such a good apple. She figured this place was heaven. The two ate in silence while watching the sun shine on the lake. The girl stared on wondering what was on the other side of that lake. It didn't look like anything was there at all.

"My name is Kagome," She said, breaking the silence.

"I'm Inuyasha," he said in a dull voice.

"Inuyasha" The way his name rolled off her tongue made his heart skip a beat.

"…Do you have friends? I don't. People always make fun of me cause I'm clumsy. Do you like candy? My mom says I eat too much candy. Do you know what's on the other side of that lake?"

"No. Kind of. I dunno," he said trying to answer all the girl's questions. She was really talkative but he didn't mind. Kagome stared at him for a few moments. Inuyasha felt her looking at him and stared back. She then scooted very close to him.

"You have no friends either? You're just like me. We can be friends forever if you want." Part of Inuyasha didn't want to be phased by the girl but her kindness warmed his heart. She pulled a red button off her sock.

"Here!" she said while handing him the button. "I didn't like these socks. The girls at school say I'm weird for wearing socks with buttons on them. But now I like them cuz they will remind me of you."

He held the little button in his hand and stared at it. "Promise you'll keep the button till the end of time?" she asked hopefully.

"Sure why not?" he replied as he put the button in his pocket.

"Hey..." he began "how'd you end up here anyway? Aren't your parents looking for you?"

Kagome stared at him blankly unable to respond. "Kagome? Kagome?" his voice faded out as her mother's voice faded in.

"Kagome wake up! It's time for school!" Kagome slowly opened her eyes and realized it was only a dream.

She was very disappointed that the nice boy was only make-believe. She sat up on the edge of her bed stretching and dangling her feet. She looked down and noticed the button on her left sock was missing.

'It wasn't a dream. Couldn't have been.'
