"So why's your hair so different, Rin?" Kagome said casually, sipping some tea. "This is really good tea, Tohru, thanks!"

"You really think so? Thanks so much!"

"I got it in a blood bond with Shippou, Kagome. Hasn't he told you?" Rin said curiously.

The cup Kagome was holding cracked. She set it down carefully, minding the glass chips. "Is that true, Rin?"

"Of course it is." Rin looked baffled. "I thought he would have told you!"

Hands slammed down on the table. "I didn't even know he was still alive!" She snapped, her face in her hands as her elbows rested on the table. "I didn't know..."

Kisa looked between the two woman, confused, and holding onto Tohru. Kagura saw this, her face darkening. "I think you need to leave," She said, standing up.

"What?" Rin said in a confused tone. "Why? I'm going to explain-"

"Come back later when she's not upset. Good day."

"Kagome, do you want to go back home?"

"N-no, we came here to have a good time. I'll just think about it when we get back...ready Tohru?"

"Yes!" The girl appeared wearing a pretty skirt and flats, a bag to carry her purchases on her shoulder.

"Kyo, Yuki, you guys wanna come?"

"No, thank you."

"Hell no! I'm not goin' on any shoppin' trip!"

Kagome snorted, waving her hand dismissivly. "Alright, alright, don't get your panties in a bunch you big baby."

They left, Kagome laughing as she heard Kyo's fit from outside.
