‘____’ Thought Expressions

“*Quote*” Whisper Expression

I knew it wasn’t going to be easy avoiding a discussion with Kagome about what happened. Even if I avoided the conversation entirely, she would always find a way of getting it out of me. Yet I still couldn’t believe how easy it was for her to talk me into doing things. It was really irritating but I was also to blame for listening to her in the first place.

*~*~*~*

Later that morning, I awoke to the smell of pancakes cooking. I figured that Kagome was already up. So I got up from the bed and walked towards the kitchen. Kagome was standing by the stove. Yawning, “Good Morning.”

She turned over and smiled, “Hey, good morning. Breakfast is almost ready.”

I made my way over to take a seat on the table. Since Kagome had taken the pitcher out from the fridge, I served myself some OJ and started to drink it. She removed the last pancake from the skillet, placed it on a plate and walked towards the table with two plates in her hands. She bent slightly and set one down in front of me, “There you go, eat up.”

“Thanks,” smiling as she sat next to me and we began to eat.

She cut a piece and picked it up as she turned towards me, “I had fun last night, what about you?” Since my mouth was full, all I did was nod as I was chewing.

I always loved Kagome’s cooking. She was a great cook. When she was younger, she would always be with mom in the kitchen helping her cook. She just happened to learn from the best.

I was taking a sip of my OJ when she suddenly asked, “So what did you think about Koga’s new look? He looked absolutely HOT didn’t he?” Her sudden remark nearly made me choke. I turned to look at her as I started to cough. She laughed and lifted her hands defensively; “Hey it’s true isn’t it?”

Trying to regain my breath, “Where did THAT come from?”

She placed her hands on the table and leaned towards me a bit, “Oh come on, you’re gonna sit there and tell me that you didn’t notice?”

By then, I had stopped coughing and continued to eat. So I picked up a piece and brought it up. Looking at it, “Oh I noticed alright,” putting the bite in my mouth afterwards.

“AND what did you think?”

Turning towards her, “He cleans up nicely.”

She raised an eyebrow, disbelieving, “That’s it? I don’t believe you. I’m sure you must of though of him in some other way.”

Raising an eyebrow, “Think of him in WHAT other way?”

She sat back on her chair, “Well, WE all saw the way you two were looking at each other.”

Shaking my head, “That didn’t mean anything, at least not from my perspective.”

She leaned on the table again and grinned; “It didn’t look like that from mine.” I looked at her as she leaned back on her chair once more. “Plus I saw you two at the beach. You guys kissed didn’t you?”

My eyes widened, ‘Oh no, she saw us. Damn it, how embarrassing.’ Lowering my head, I held onto the top of my nose as I shook it, “No we didn’t. He tried but that was when you guys came back to leave.” Lifting my head up again to look at her again.

She smiled, “Oh really, man talk about bad timing. But it’s still great. Although, why do you act as if you didn’t want it to happen?”

Raising my voice, “Because I DIDN”T want it to. I wanted something to happen so he could stop.”

Kagome’s smile faded and was replaced with a concerned expression, “But why though, I don’t get it. Koga’s a good guy. He’s nice…”

“And annoying.” I interrupted her with an irritated tone of voice. “Look, he’s just not my type.”

Then she leaned towards me again, “Then what IS your type?”

I opened my mouth to answer but nothing ever came out. So I turned away from her to look out the window and sighed as I rested my elbow on the table and placed my chin on my hand.

I really didn’t know the answer to that myself. Most of the guys that tried to get close to me were always Kagome’s dates. I don’t know why, I just happened to attract the wrong kind of man. It really frustrated me and caused many arguments between us because of it. At that time, the one that could I fully open my heart to had not entered my life yet.

She leaned back on her chair, “Rin, what is it?”

Slightly shaking my head, “I’m not sure. But I DO know that it’s definitely not Koga.” Not looking at her.

“Rin, you can’t say that because you don’t know him well. Just the small conversations you’ve had in the past but that’s not enough to set such a big conclusion. Come on, give him a chance and who knows he may end up being your ‘type’.”

Shaking my head, I rolled my eyes as I turned back towards her, “*When did this get so complicated?*” “Well, he did ask me to have dinner with him tonight but I told him that I’d call him back later to let him know my answer.”

“AND are you going to accept?”

“I wasn’t going to…” She began to raise an eyebrow and giving me her “look”. “But I think I will.”

She smiled, cheery, “Great. Look don’t worry about our plans, we can reschedule. I’ll just kick it here at home most likely log on the Internet and chat.”

As I was cutting another piece, “Aren’t you going out with Kohaku?” Taking in the other bite.

“Nah, he has some other things he has to do.” Sipping some of her milk.

“What about Sango?”

Shaking her head slightly, “Hmm… nope she has a date with Miroku.”

“Oh, then I guess you’re stuck at home tonight.” Giggling at the fact of how much she hated being at home.

She stuck her tongue out at me and we continued eating. Once we finished, I stood and picked up my plate, taking it to the sink. “I’ll wash the dishes since you cooked.” Kagome stood and brought all the dirty dishes to the sink as I was washing my plate.

“Thanks, I’ll be in the study using the computer,” as she walked away towards the hall.

“OK.”

Once I was finished, I headed back to my room. I jumped on my bed and looked out the window, blanking out as I stared outside. Until I started to think back to what Kagome had said. ‘Maybe she’s right. I should just give him a chance. He might not be so bad; he’s changed a lot since the last time I saw him… Agh… what the hell? What do I have to lose?’ So I reached over and grabbed my purse from the nightstand. I dug through it until I found Koga’s card. Then I reached back in and pulled out my cell. Taking a deep breath, I dialed his number.

After a couple of rings, Koga answered.

“Araki Enterprises, Koga speaking.

Hey Koga. What’s up?

Nothing much. Who’s this?

Oh, you forgot already? It’s Rin.

Rin oh shit, sorry about that. It’s just that this damn phone hasn’t stopped ringing all morning.

-Giggling- it’s ok. So you work weekends too?

Sometimes, it depends on how much needs to be done. So did you ask Kagome about tonight?

Yeah, I did. She said it was ok. Although, she’s stuck staying at home tonight.

-Laughing- e HehhhhShe’ll survive. Awesome, so you’ll join me for dinner then?

Yes, I will. Just let me know what time so I can be ready.

Great, be ready by 7. I’ll stop by your house to pick you up, is that ok?

Yes, it’s fine. I’ll be ready by then.

Well, I’ve got to get back to work so I’ll see you tonight, ok?

All right, talk to you later.

Bye

Bye.”

Shaking my head as I closed my phone, ‘What have I gotten myself into?’ I got up and walked out of my room, heading towards the study to join Kagome. I entered and found her already on the computer, typing away.

She stopped typing and looked up at me, “What happened? Did you call him?”

I walked over to the bookshelf, looked through the book and grabbed one. Then I turned and walked to sit on the sofa, “Yeah, I did. It’s set. He’s going to pick me up at 7.”

“Cool, do you know where he’s going to take you?”

I started flipping through the pages and shook my head, “No, he didn’t tell me and I didn’t have a chance to ask him because he was busy at work.”

“Oh, do you know what you’re going to wear?”

I started to read something that caught my attention but was getting distracted by Kagome so I waved my hand at her, signaling her to stop talking to me. “I’ll find something.”

“Well, you can borrow something of mine if you want.”

By then, she annoyed me and I looked up from the book, “Kagome, It doesn’t matter. Now can I get back to my reading?” She lifted an eyebrow and looked back to the computer, not saying anything else.

After a couple of hours, I looked up to the clock and noticed that it was about 5:30pm. I closed the book and walked up to the shelf. “I’m going to take a shower and get ready.”

“Oh ok.” Kagome responded but didn’t look away from the monitor.

I walked towards her, somewhat curious as to what she was doing, “What are you doing?” and stood by the desk.

“Just chatting.”

I chuckled and turned to start walking away, “Must be someone really interesting then, for you not to even blink your eyes.” Laughing as I exited the study, not giving her a chance to respond.

After my shower, I toweled off and walked back to my room. As I was brushing my hair, I made my way over to the closet. “Now what shall I wear? Not that I’m trying to make an impression. Hmm… Let’s see.”

So I began to dig through my clothes until I pulled out a short black dress. It was very simple; plain with spaghetti straps although the bottom was cut in an abnormal zigzag.

“I think this should be fine.”

I turned and placed it on the bed. Then I reached back into the closet and pulled out some black strappy heels. I slipped the dress on then walked up to the mirror to inspect it. It reached a little above my knees fitting pretty snug on my body defining its curves. Pleased with the look of my dress, I walked back to the dresser, opened a drawer and pulled out a pair of chopsticks and a little makeup bag. I rolled up my hair up to a French twist and inserted the sticks to keep it in place then moved on to apply the makeup. Applying it lightly, trying to keep the look natural. I’ve never been a fan of packing on makeup to look like some circus clown. I turned around and sat on the bed. Suddenly I looked at the clock, it was about 6:45 by then.

‘Oh shit, he’s going to be here pretty soon.’ So I quickly slipped on the shoes, walked over to the dresser and opened another drawer. I pulled out a black shawl to wear over the dress. I sprayed some perfume, grabbed my purse and headed out to the living room.

As I was entering the living room, I heard Kagome yell, “Come here, I want to see you.”

I shook my head a bit, “*Jeez, what now?*”

Before I entered the study, I placed the shawl over my back and wrapped the ends around my arms. Once I walked in, Kagome moved away from the computer and a huge smile appeared on her face, “Wow, you look great. So I see you’re going for the ‘classy but not yet a slut’ look?”

“Well, that’s all that’s left since you took over the ‘total slut’ one.” Trying to hold back my laughter with no success.

She sat back on the chair, “Ha ha, very funny.” Suddenly, the doorbell rang.

Kagome looked in the direction of the door and stood, “Oh that must be Koga, wait here I’ll open.” Seeing her walk out of the study as my hands turned ice cold.

The more she and Koga spoke, the more nervous I got. So I started pacing around the room, ‘Is this really a good idea?’

Suddenly, Kagome peeked in, “Rin, Koga’s here. Come on out.” I turned to her and nodded before she disappeared back to the living room.

So I took a deep breath and whispered, “*Well, here I go*,” before I made my way to walk out of the study.

The moment I entered the living room, Koga stood from the sofa with a huge grin on his face and Kagome walked back into the study.

I noticed him looking at me, starting from the top going all the way to the bottom then back up again. I felt my cheeks heat up a bit from embarrassment and from the look that was apparent in his eyes. He continued looking at me as I walked and stood in front of him, “Wow, you look amazing.”

I slightly bowed my head in appreciation and smiled, “Thank you, you look really handsome yourself.”

He really did. The black slacks, light blue shirt and leather jacket he was wearing made him look handsome. Especially, the shirt because it brought out the color of his eyes.

Suddenly he reached into his jacket pocket, “Oh, I brought you something.”

Shaking my head slightly, “You didn’t have to.”

He grinned, “I wanted to.” He pulled out a small box and handed it to me. I accepted the box from him but looked up at him, still unsure of whether I should open it or not. He smiled, “Go ahead, open it.”

So I began to open it, slowly until I was able to see its contents. I gasped, “Oh my god, it’s beautiful. Thank you.”

He walked around and stood right behind me, leaning in to whisper in my ear “*It reminded me of you.*” He reached around and took the necklace from the box. Carefully, he opened it and placed it around my neck, fastening it. I have to admit it was a pretty necklace. It was a thin silver chain that had a rose pendant; in the center of the rose was a tiny diamond.

I looked down to look at the necklace as he fastened it when suddenly I heard him breathe in deeply, it weirded me out and I slightly turned to look at him.

“*You smell wonderful,*” he whispered in my ear as he placed a small kiss on my neck. Then he walked around and stood in front of me, “Ready to go?”

Nodding, “Yeah, I’m ready.”

He smiled and extended his hand out to me. I held on to it as we began to walk towards the door. He stopped and peeked into the study, “Bye Kagome, see you later.”

We continued walking as she yelled back, “Oh ok, bye guys have a good time.”

So Koga and I headed out on our “date”. We went to a really nice restaurant but by the time we’d finished our meal, I REALLY wanted the torture to end. After dinner, he insisted on talking a walk. So we walked around a park that was close to the restaurant but I was already beginning to get tired and luckily, he decided to end it early. At about 10, he finally dropped me off home.

When we arrived to the house, he stopped in the driveway. “Here we are.” I remained silent and smiled. He smiled and shut off the engine before he stepped out of the car.

Sighing, ‘Finally.’ He walked around and opened the door for me, extending his hand to me.

Since his truck was pretty high, I took hold of his hand and stepped off the truck. Although, immediately pulling it away from his once I was on the ground. I started walking towards the door and he walked next to me until we arrived to the front porch. I walked up to the door and stopped right before it. Then I turned around to face him and smiled, “Thanks for everything Koga, I had a good time.” Knowing in my mind that it was all a big lie.

He smiled, “You’re welcome, it was great.”

With that being said, all I wanted was to go inside and get rid of him. So I turned to open the door when he gently held onto my arm, “Rin.”

Slightly surprised at his action, I turned towards him again, “What is it?”

“I wanted to ask you something before I leave again.”

Confused, “Again? What do you mean?”

At that moment, I could see his eyes sadden, “I leave on another business trip tomorrow morning.”

“Oh, for how long?” But in an evil way, I was glad.

Suddenly, he started to walk up to me, keeping his eyes locked on mine, “4 months.” Then he slowly started to slide his hands up my arms, the light sensation sending chills up my spine.

“Oh.” All of a sudden, he wrapped his arms around and held me tightly to him. In that position, I felt him lean down and heard when he breathed in deeply again.

I began to feel a bit uncomfortable and lightly push him back, hoping he would let go of me. “*Koga, I have to go now.*” Thankfully, I felt him slowly release me.

He looked at me, “Oh, all right. Would you mind if I called you while I’m away?”

Honestly, I didn’t know what to say to him. I mean I really didn’t want him to call me but I had to give him SOME credit for at least trying to change. I’m not sure what it was but I convinced myself of at least letting him call me once in a while. Although, I wasn’t going to give him my cell number, I was not that stupid. I’m sure that if I did, he would call nonstop just to keep a check on me. I wasn’t going to put myself in such a position with someone I only considered a friend and nothing else.

“Umm… you have the house number right?”

“I think I do. Let me see” He pulled out his cell phone and checked, “Oh yeah, I have it right here.”

I was so relived that I sighed faintly, hoping he didn’t hear it. “Ok, call me at home.”

He burrowed his eyebrows; “Don’t you have a cell phone?”

“Yeah, but I don’t use it. I don’t even carry it with me, see.” I opened my purse and let him peek inside. Luckily I forgot to put it back in after I’d called him.

“Oh, ok. Well, take care of yourself Rin.”

“You too, Koga.” That was when I realized that he began lowering his head towards me. ‘Oh shit, he better not be trying to do what I think he’s going to do.’ Then I noticed his lips getting really close to mine. So as fast as I could, I turned my face away from him and felt his lips press on my cheek. He backed away from me with disappointment clearly showing in his eyes.

I curled my lips up to a smile, “Bye, Koga,” before I reached behind me and turned the knob to open the door.

“Good night, Rin.”

Finally, I took a step inside and responded, “Good night,” before I slowly shut the door.

Once it was closed, I leaned back against it and took a deep breath, “Well, THAT’S finally over.” But then I noticed that a light was still on in the study and turned towards it. I looked over at the clock, it was about 11:00pm. “Weird, Kagome’s usually not up at this hour when she has nothing to do.” So I headed towards the study and peeked in. To my surprise, she was still on the computer typing away, “Hey, I’m back.”

Kagome looked up and smiled, “Hey Rin,” quickly turning back to look at the monitor.

I walked in and sat on the sofa, “I’m surprised you’re still up and STILL on the computer. I thought you hated it.”

Not turning away from the computer, “I never said I hated it. I decided on having a long night that’s why I’m still up.”

I looked away from her and stared at the coffee table, “Oh, so you’re still chatting?” Looking back at her.

Kagome looked towards me and smiled, “Yeah, I met a guy that’s really interesting.”

Smiling, “Really? What chat room did you meet him at?”

“Some room I found as I was surfing the web.”

“Where does he live?”

Kagome looked back to the monitor and typed something, “I’m not sure, I just started talking to him. Well, anyway so how was your date?”

My smile faded at the change of subject and it was the subject that I definitely didn’t want to touch. But I had to tell her anyway so I looked towards the window of the study, “It started out ok. He took me to a really nice restaurant. I’m not sure of the name but I don’t think we’ve been there before. He was being a perfect gentleman at first…”

“Oooo… ok go on,” Kagome interrupted.

As I kept thinking back, I felt my body start to tense up as I continued, “But when we were at the table he really began to tick me off.”

“Why?”

I turned to look at her and raised my voice a little, “Because I’ve never known such a self-centered guy before. All he talked about was him. I think his motto is ‘It’s all about me’ or something cause that’s how he made it seem.”

Shocked, “What? Really? That sounds so unlike him.”

“Well, that’s how it was and to make it even worse, he’s extremely vain. I noticed that at every chance he got, he always had to stop and look at himself.”

Shaking her head, “Whoa that IS so unlike Koga.”

“Kagome, he even had the fucking nerve to look at himself in the damn silverware at the restaurant. COME ON the silverware for God’s sakes. WHAT KIND OF SHIT IS THAT?” By then, I was nearly shouting, I just needed to release the frustration that had built up during the date. Kagome still had the shocked look on her face and stayed quiet just shaking her head slightly. “Could you believe he also had the damn nerve to raise his voice at me while IN the restaurant AND in front of everyone else because I looked away for a moment. I thought I saw someone that I recognized and it pissed him off because he said that I wasn’t ‘paying attention’ to him.”

Kagomes’ jaw dropped; “He got jealous? Damn but that does sounds like him though. He’s the jealous type.”

I lowered my voice back to normal and turned to look at the table again, “Well, that doesn’t matter anymore. When he brought me home, you won’t believe how RELIEVED I was that it was finally over. But before he left, he told me that he was leaving on another business trip tomorrow morning and he wants to call me while he’s away.”

“And what did you say to him?”

Shaking my head a bit, “I didn’t know what to say to him at first but I had to give him some credit for at least TRYING to change so I told him to call me at home.”

“What about your cell phone?”

I looked back at her and raised my voice again; “DO YOU THINK FUCKING STUPID TO GIVE HIM MY CELL NUMBER? Hell No, I’m sure he would be calling me non-stop to keep a check on me and interrogate me on what I’m doing. I don’t want to have to go through that. If he calls me here, I have the advantage of cutting him short when he calls.”

Kagome shook her head, “Now that’s mean Rin but you do have a point though. I don’t blame you for doing that, I would’ve too if a guy was like that with me.” Suddenly, she turned to look at the monitor again and typed something in. I, on the other hand, took a deep breath still trying to calm myself down and remained silent. “Well, we should be going to bed. Plus I’m sure you’re tired. You’ve had quite a day.” So she shut off the computer and walked up to me, extending her hand.

I looked up at her as she nudged her head towards the door and smiled, “Come on.” So I held onto her hand and stood from the sofa. She stood next to me and wrapped her arm around me, walking next to me as she held me. As she was caressing my head, “Rin, get some sleep. Don’t worry, it will all be ok.” She walked me to my door and then wrapped her arms around me, “*Good night*” and placed a kiss my cheek.

“Thanks, Kagome. Good night.” She walked into her room when I closed my door. I quickly changed into my pajamas and jumped into bed, trying to forget the terrible nightmare I had gone through.
