Thanks for the idea, hope this chapter satisfies. If anyone has any more ideas, let me know, I can always use some. This story doesn't really focus on Naraku or the jewel at all, just Koga, Inuyasha and Kagome. Plus this chapter is a little longer than the others (but not by much). Anyway, here's the next chapter, hope you like :) Read and review!
Disclaimer: I do not own Inuyasha and Co. I believe that honor goes to Rumiko Takahashi.
The next morning Muttf—Inuyasha couldn't seem to stop glaring at Kagome. Koga knew she smelled like him. They didn't mate, but they had a fun night. She seemed to be glowing. Koga couldn't help but gloat inside. Every time Inuyasha glowered at Koga, he smirked, and Inuyasha would get madder.
Jealousy was a funny thing. It wasn't long ago that he was doing the same thing with Inuyasha, now the tides changed. INUYASHA was jealous of HIM. All it took was kindness and letting her trust him on her terms. But he would never know that. And Kagome knew Koga wouldn't hurt her. Ever. Koga loved her. He wouldn't let Inuyasha get her. One way or another, he wouldn't have her.
"Oi, wench! Why do you smell like the flea bag over there?" Inuyasha finally demanded.
Sango's eyes went wide before she turned on her.
"Kagome what did you do! No, you know what, let's go! We're taking a break and Kagome and I are going to go have a talk!" Sango grabbed her by the wrist and dragged a tomato red Kagome off out of hearing distance.
"Flea bag…" Inuyasha growled. "What did you do to her?"
"I didn't do anything she didn't want," Koga smirked.
"What did you do!" Inuyasha yelled. Koga crossed his arms and his smirk grew.
"Nothing you shouldn't have already figured out," Koga turned his blue eyes to the direction Kagome and Sango went.
Inuyasha was red in the face, he was so mad. Koga had a full on smile now.
"I'll find out how she got so close to you," Inuyasha growled in his face.
"It wasn't hard, muttface. Nothing you couldn't have done," Koga said in a serious tone. "But you had to abuse her and use her. She went to somebody who treats her right."
That was all it was. If only he would figure that out.
Kagome and Sango came back a few minutes later, Sango steaming and Kagome red in the face.
"Koga! I have a bone to pick with you!" Sango was screaming, a look of life threatening anger on her face. Koga was a little afraid, but stood his ground. "You EVER hurt her, and I swear I will kill you! She has been hurt enough and doesn't need to be hurt again. She trusts you with her life, and obviously trusted you with her virginity. If you ever, ever, EVER hurt her, you will NOT live to take another breath!" By now Sango's voice was a mere whisper, making Koga fear for his life.
"Sango, I swear to you and to Kagome, I will not hurt her. I love her with everything I have, and will do nothing to hurt her," Koga said, staring Sango in the face, very seriously. It seemed to do the trick, she got out of his face and walked on.
A sigh of relief, he looked at Kagome, and everyone followed Sango, who seemed to be satisfied and smiling. Kagome was walking by his side, Inuyasha ahead of them, silent and staring ahead, looking very upset.
Koga was the luckiest demon alive. To have such a wonderful girl, who had good friends and a man to treat her the way she deserved to be treated. A woman who would soon be an alpha of a wolf tribe. His heart grinned, making his heart swell with pride. He knew she'd do anything for his tribe, just because they were his comrades, soon to be her comrades too.
That night, Koga and Kagome went on a walk, which was something they had taken to doing recently. They went out to the field and walked around, hand in hand. She stood proudly now, no longer a meek little girl he'd fell for, but now a proud woman he fell harder for each day.
"Koga?" Kagome whispered, knowing he could hear her. "Do you… do you think Inuyasha will get over what we've become?"
Honestly, no. Inuyasha had some serious control issues.
"Maybe someday. Right now, he needs to get his feelings sorted out." Koga said, somewhat honestly.
Kagome sighed a little. "I don't love him anymore. I mean, I don't want to be with him the way I used to."
Koga raised an eyebrow. When did she figure this out? A familiar scent caught his nose, and he resisted the smirk at Inuyasha spying. He won't give up any time soon. Inuyasha had been watching them all day. In an urge to make Inuyasha jealous, he leaned in for a kiss from Kagome.
He felt Inuyasha's aura flare as he kissed her, and she stepped closer to him. When he saw the blush on her face when he broke the kiss, he smirked again. He loved that blush on her face. He would never get tired of it. He would never get tired of making Inuyasha jealous.
When he saw Kagome shiver, he put his arm around her, not having anything else to give her. He felt Inuyasha's aura flare again. He supposed he couldn't truly be alone with her, and there wasn't a whole lot he could do about it without embarrassing her or giving someone else a view of things they shouldn't be seeing. Like Kagome's naked body. He wanted to take that body again, sure, but it would have to wait until Inuyasha finally stopped snooping.
"Maybe we should go back," Kagome said.
"Yeah, maybe we should," Koga agreed.
When they got back to camp, Inuyasha was already there, stewing in his jealousy. Koga got it, but Inuyasha just didn't.
"You know, muttface, jealousy doesn't exactly become you," Koga taunted.
"I'm not jealous!" he immediately defended.
"Yeah, okay, is that why you were watching us?" Koga said. Kagome's eyes went wide.
"Inuyasha? You were watching us?" Kagome whispered.
"I wanted to make sure you were actually protected, since flea bag here can't!" Inuyasha turned away.
"Inuyasha, sit." She said. "Koga has done a great job defending me, even if it's from you. I don't exactly like being useless, but Koga doesn't seem to mind. I don't think he'd want me out on the battlefield anyway."
"I felt your aura flare when I kissed her," Koga said, a smirk on his face. He just couldn't stop.
"It did not!" Inuyasha defended, turning red. Koga laughed.
"I felt it, don't go there. You've been watching us all day. Trying to figure out how I got the girl," Koga prodded. "How I got her in my bed when you want her in yours."
He felt Kagome's aura flare. Embarrassment, anger. He knew she was mad at him for going there.
"Truth is, you'll never understand. I love her brains, her heart, her strength as well as her body. I love everything about her that you don't see. I didn't have to try to get her. She came to me when you rejected her efforts to get you. That's how I got her," Koga crossed his arms.
If Inuyasha kept watching, maybe he would understand. Kagome yawned dramatically and said she was going to bed. He could feel that she was just tired of them fighting. Inuyasha looked a little sad. Serves him, he supposed. Inuyasha didn't exactly deserve to be hurt, but he deserved to lose the girl. Koga laid on the ground near Kagome, who had already fallen asleep. Inuyasha went to a nearby tree and sat there. He kept staring at the full moon.
Since Koga learned his secret, Inuyasha would make sure to protect him tomorrow night, even if only for Kagome's sake. She would be hurt if he died. He promised he would do anything for her, and this was something he would do for her.
Over the next few days, Inuyasha continued to watch them closely. And Koga showed him how to do it, all the while making him jealous. Inuyasha couldn't seem to get past that Koga had her and he didn't. Every time Koga did something nice for her, his aura flared. Finally Koga inwardly gave up on trying to teach Inuyasha, but instead focused on just keeping Kagome happy. Eventually, hopefully, Inuyasha would get it and find a girl who could tame him.
