New Moon Feelings
Chapter 6: New Moon Feelings
Kagome was sitting in a field of flowers of all different colors. A million shooting stars were flying across the dark night sky, the full moon shining brightly. A big, dark blue lake sparkled like a beautiful diamond in the moonlight. Rainbow cherry blossom tree branches, were swaying in the gently breeze that blew. It was very peaceful.
"Your dreams are as beautiful as always." Pegasus said as he came and tucked his legs under him to lay besides the dreaming miko. One of his wings wrapped itself around her shoulder. He looked at her face and saw she had a very serious look, as if she were thinking very hard about something. "What are thinking about?" he asked.
"Can't I tell them?" Kagome, not looking at him, replied in a whispered voice.
Knowing what she was talking about, Pegasus replied. "No."
"But, what if I only tell one of them?"
"I know this is frustrating for you, but you must understand that if any of your friends were to find out then, they would be put in danger."
Kagome nodded in understanding. "I understand. But I feel like I'm betraying them if I don't tell them."
Pegasus leaned forward and began to nuzzle her cheek in a comforting manner, his wing covering her whole body, almost as if he were protecting her.
"One day, I promise you, you can tell them. But for now, only you, me, and Asagiri can know. Okay?"
Kagome said nothing, just nodded.
Suddenly a familiar bright white light surround everything.
The next morning, the group once again started their travels. Also it seems Inuyasha was in a bad mood this morning.
"Let's go! Move It!" he ordered, leading the way.
"What's with him?" Asagiri asked, annoyed with the half-demon's bossiness. "He's more grumpy and bossy than usual."
"It's because it's the night of the new moon, Asagiri." Miroku explained
"Yeah, the night of the new moon is the night were Inuyasha turns completely human." Kagome told her.
"Oh, that makes sense, considering he is a half-demon." Asagiri stated, finally understanding the situation.
"Yeah, so what? You got a problem with me being a half-demon, pipsqueak?!" Inuyasha asked, growling at the mini snow demon.
"N-No, of course not!"Asagiri flinched, trying to hide behind Kagome's shoulder. 'Geez, this guy really has issues.'
After a full day of traveling, the group stopped to camp by a large lake. They finished setting up camp, just in time for the sun to set and for Inuyasha to turn human. His long silver hair turned black, his golden eyes changed violet, his dog ear, fangs, and claws all turned to human ones.
"Incredible!" Asagiri exclaimed, looking over every inch of the half-demon turned human. "I've never seen a half-demon turn into a human before. It's amazing!"
"I'm so glad you're impressed." Inuyasha replied with sarcasm in his voice.
"You know, I bet you're as weak as a kitten in this form." Asagiri said in a teasing voice. "Or a puppy to be more accurate." she giggled.
A red irritation mark throbbed on Inuyasha's forehead. He used his fingers to flick Asagiri hard. She yelped in pain.
"You're one to talk about being weak, you little mouse!"
"Inuyasha, Asagiri, stop bickering." Sango told them.
"She started it!" Inuyasha said, sounding childish.
Kagome sighed, as she stood up and walked toward the lake
"Where are you going, Kagome?" Shippo asked
"Just down to the lake to fill up on some water."
"I'll accompany you." Asagiri offered, as she stood up and followed Kagome.
"I'll come, too."Inuyasha said, standing up. "Just to make sure you two don't get into trouble."
When the trio made it to the lake, Kagome bent down to refill her canteen. Meanwhile, Inuyasha was staring at her the whole time. Her hair swayed the wind and her eyes seemed to hold warmth and kindness. She was beautiful. Suddenly an image of a certain warrior princess appeared is his mind. Inuyasha mentally gasped.
'W-Why, did I just think of Kagome as Sakura. I admit they look a bit alike, but Kagome isn't flirty like her.'
"Inuyasha?" Kagome's brought him out thoughts. "You ready to go back?"
When he nodded Kagome stood up, but lost her footing and fell backward into the lake. When she resurfaced Inuyasha helped her out the water.
"Kagome, are you okay?" Asagiri asked.
"Yeah, sorry, I'm clumsy."
Inuyasha and Asagiri both sweatdropped. They looked down and both blushed heavily. Thanks to the water Kagome's shirt clung to her, like a second skin. The outline of her large breast could be seen.
"Are you two okay? You're both bright red." Kagome asked, oblivious to where the pair was staring.
"N-No! It's nothing." both replied in unison.
"But you might want to wring out your shirt a little." Asagiri suggested.
Kagome, finally understanding, nodded and went behind a boulder to rid her shirt of any water. While she was behind the big rock, her two friends were still blushing over what the just saw. Asagiri suddenly got an idea. She looked up at Inuyasha and grinned devilish at him.
"Hey, Inuyasha, lend me your ear for a second."
"What is it?" he picked up Asagiri and placed her on his shoulder, next to his ear.
"I just want to tell you something interesting." she whispered in his ear. "I have felt them."
Inuyasha, knowing exactly what she meant, flushed bright red. "Y-You, mean..."
"Yep." Asagiri grinned from ear to ear. "And let me tell you, they're as soft as they look." she said as she held her hands on both sides of her face, blushing a light scarlet.
Before Inuyasha could anything to the bragging mini snow demon, Kagome came back from behind the boulder with a water free shirt.
"Hey, are you guy ready to go back to camp?" the miko asked.
"Sure am, Kagome." Asagiri replied, jumping off of Inuyasha shoulder and into Kagome's arms. Making sure Inuyasha watching, Asagiri smirked rather smugly and put one of tiny hands on one of Kagome's breast.
Two red irritation marks started to throb on the now human boy's head. 'Why you cocky little..'
After the trio had come back to the camp everyone had went to sleep, expect for Inuyasha.
"Why are you still awake?" Asagiri asked, not sleeping as well.
"Keh, if I were to sleep then some demon could come and kill me in my sleep." he replied. His thoughts then drifted to a certain snow-haired girl. 'If a demon goes come, I wonder if she'll come. And I wonder what she'll think of me in this form.'
His thoughts were interrupted by a nosy mini snow demoness. "Are you thinking about someone special?"
"None of business!"
"Keep it down you two, some people are trying to sleep." Miroku said, mad about being woken up.
"It's her fault!" Inuyasha replied, once again sounding childish.
Suddenly, a loud rumbling sound came the direction of the forest. And it sounded like it was coming closer.
"W-What is that?" Kagome asked awaking up along with everyone else.
"Whatever it is, it's big and coming this way." Sango commented, getting ready to attack with hiraikotsu.
Suddenly, a giant bull demon came hurling through the trees. It's large, sharp horns ready to pierce through skin. It's hooves ready to trample anything in it's path. It charged. Sango threw her giant boomerang and it hit the bull in the face, sending it back a few feet. The demon snorted in angry, pawing at the ground with it's hoof.
'It looks mad.' Kagome thought. 'I better go transform into Sakura Hime ,just in case.'
Making sure, once again, that no one was paying attention to her, Kagome ran into the forest and hide behind a large tree. She quickly transformed into her pink kimono and summoned Chizakura. She ran back and saw the demon charging at her friends. She jumped in the air and landed in front of the bull and grabbed a hold of it's horns. She planted her feet in the ground as she was pushed back, but was finally able to stop. Her feet were at the edge of the lake. With all the strength she could muster, Kagome was able to flip the big bull demon onto it's back. Everyone was amazed by the girl's strength. Jumping away from the bull, Kagome landed close to her friends.
"Are you really human?!" everyone asked in unison, shocked by her power.
She just shrugged her shoulders and turned her attention back to the bull demon, who was now back on it's feet, and pointed her sword at it. The bull pawed the ground, while Kagome got into attack stance. They stared at each other for what seemed like hours, until they finally charged at each other. Sparks flew when the bull horn's and Kagome sword made contact with each other. The both of them keep this up for a while until Kagome decided to use a different form of attack. She jumped back and got into a stance. Her sword placed in front of her, both her hands gripping the handle.
"Cherry Blossom Storm!" she swung her sword outward.
The very sharp storm of cherry blossoms came out of her sword and flew toward the bull. Cuts appeared on the demon's body, blood flowing from the wounds.
'That should slow it down a bit.' Kagome thought.
She charged at the bull, aiming her sword for it's neck. But the demon blocked with her with it's horns.
Kagome grunted. "You are one stubborn cow."
Somehow, the bull was able to push Kagome back a few feet. The bull turned around and flung out it's hooves to kick her. Kagome closed her eyes and waited for the oncoming blow. But it never came. Kagome opened her eyes and gasped. Inuyasha had taken the kick for her. The kick sent him spiraling into the lake. The sound of a loud splash rang in Kagome's ear.
'Inuyasha...' was the only thing that ran through the young girl's mind.
She bowed her head, her bangs hiding her eyes. She gripped the handle of her katana tightly. Her teeth gritted together. She lifted her head, and everyone gasp. Kagome's eyes were glowing pink and she was glaring at the bull demon with pure angry and hated.
"You bastard! I'm gonna kill you!" she vowed.
The warrior princess ran towarda the bull, with speed that made her look like pink and white blur, and used her Chizakura to slice the bull's head clean off. The head dropped to the ground and rolled a few times until it came to a stop, it's blood staining the green grass. With her eyes still glowing, Kagome ran towards the lake Chizakura disappearing into her palm. She jumped in the air and dived in with a big splash. She swam as fast as she could in the dark water.
'This lake is so deep.' she thought. 'And it's really dark, too.' But thanks to her eyes glowing brightly, she had no problem at all seeing in the water. After what seemed like hours, Kagome finally saw Inuyasha's form falling deeper into the water.
Kicking her feet harder and faster, Kagome got closer to her friend. Suddenly, Inuyasha opened his eyes and found himself staring into a pair of glowing pink ones. He immediately knew who it was.
'Sakura...' he thought.
Her snow white hair was moving wildly in the water and her beautiful glowing eyes and face held relief, happy to see that he was okay. A smile formed on her lips. She looked like an angel. She reached out her hand and gentle caressed his cheek. Inuyasha unconsciously leaned himself further into her soft, warm hand. Putting her hand behind his head she pulled him forward, close to her chest. Next, she put her arm around his waist, then started to kick hard and quickly upward toward the surface.
'She looked really happy to see that I okay.' Inuyasha thought, his head still on her chest. 'She feels really soft.' was the last thing he thought as he closed his eyes and slipped into unconsciousness.
As Inuyasha started to regain consciousness, he felt something pressed against his lips. He slowly opened his eyes and saw that Sakura's lips were on his, she was holding his head with her hand. He blinked a few times before realizing what was happening. His eyes widened so big, that they looked like they would pop out of his sockets.
'W-W-What the!?' he exclaimed mentally.
He started to struggle, trying to get away from the girl he thought was kissing him. Kagome noticed his attempt to escaped and released his lips. When he was free, he slightly pushed her away and scooted away from her. His face was bright red.
"W-What is wrong with you?!" he stammered.
"Huh? What do you mean?" Kagome asked, confused by his sudden outburst.
"You know exactly what I mean! First, you save me, then you kiss me while I was unconsciousness! What kind of game are you playing here?!"
"Kiss you?" Kagome titled her head to the side. Suddenly, she started to giggle, then her giggles turned into a huge laugh. She held her sides.
"What's so funny?!" Inuyasha yelled.
Finally able to control her laughter Kagome looked at her embarrassed friend. "I wasn't kissing you, stupid! I was giving you mouth-to-mouth." she told him.
Inuyasha blinked. "M-Mouth-to-mouth?"
"Yeah, you know to get all the water that you swallowed out of you."
"O-Oh..." was all Inuyasha said. 'That actually makes more sense.' he thought.
"Did you want me to kiss you for real?" Kagome asked, putting on her flirtatious smirk.
"N-No of course not!" the half-demon stammered, blushing.
The white haired miko scooted closer to him and grabbed both sides of his face.
'W-What is she going to do?' Inuyasha thought.
Kagome leaned forward. Inuyasha closed his eyes and waited for the oncoming kiss to come onto his lips. Instead, he felt her lips on the tip of his nose. She pulled back and smiled at him. She traced the line of his jaw with her finger.
"That was for protecting me from the demon's kick ." she said. "Let's make a deal. Whenever you do something good, then I'll give you a kiss as a reward. But you have to close your eyes, so you'll be more surprised where you get."
She stood up and walk past a blushing Inuyasha.
"Wait." he stood up himself and grabbed her wrist. "I just want to know. Why do you always flirt with me?" she looked confused. "You only flirt with me, but you could also have flirted with Miroku. I know he would love to get that kind of attention from a beautiful girl like you. So why me and not him?"
Kagome looked at him for awhile, before smirking at him. "You think I'm beautiful?"
Inuyasha blushed, realizing what he just said. "D-Don't try and change the subject and answer the question!"
Kagome chuckled. "All right, all right." she leaned forward into his ear, her hot breath tickling him. "I don't flirt with the monk because... he's not the one I really like."
She pulled back to look at Inuyasha's shocked and surprised face. She just smiled and turned around to walk into the forest. She turned around to look at him, her words snapping him out of his trance.
"I'm really glad you're okay. If something terrible were to happen to you, I don't know what I would do."
Then, without another word, she turned and walked into forest, disappearing into the trees. Once again, she left a shocked and blushing half-demon behind. The next morning, Inuyasha turned back into his half-demon form and the group started their travels once again.To be continued...
