It must be the newness, InuYasha decided - a new house, a new location. Atae was already asleep in the sleeping room, but neither he nor Kagome was really ready to give in and go lay down. Everything was too new, and they’d done so much with no quiet time. Just having the room to themselves was a treat, some time to be together alone. InuYasha tossed another log into the fire pit.
Laying the fire tongs back down, he left his seat, and came back and sat behind Kagome, wrapping his arms around her. They both watched the dancing flame. Something popped and a spray of sparks flew up.
“Fireworks,” Kagome said.
“Hmm,” he said, snuggling her against his chest.
“The spray of sparks looked like fireworks,” she replied, relaxing against him.
“You said that our first night together when you came back,” he replied, nuzzling his cheek against the top of her head.
“You remember?” she asked, resting her hand across his.
“Keh,” he replied. “As if I’d forget. I remember everything about that night.”
“Me too,” she replied. “I was so nervous.”
He let his mouth run to the edge of her jaw, planting little kisses. “You weren’t the only one,” His breath teased her ear. “I had wanted you to come back for so long. I had dreamed about what would happen, and I was scared I’d do the wrong thing and you’d run back into that strange world of yours.” His hand slid up from her waist to cup her breast. “If you had, I think I would have died.”
“I remember how your eyes followed me everywhere,” Kagome said, laying a hand along his thigh, letting her fingers run along the muscle there. “I remember thinking how I never wanted to go another day without seeing those eyes look at me.”
“When you took off your shirt and told me to touch, I thought my heart was gonna burst out of my chest cause it was beating so hard,” he said
“Your hands did shake,” she said. She tilted her head to the side, giving him access to her neck.
His mouth obliged, tracing the long line of her neck. He slipped his fingers under the neckline of her robe, and nudged the fabric open, giving him better access to the base of her throat and the top of her shoulder. Kagome gasped slightly as his lips continued to explore. The fire popped again.
“Ummm, more fireworks,” she muttered as his hand drifted lower under her robe.
“Be a bigger explosion later,” he whispered in her ear, and pulled her to the floor.
