A/N: This fic just kinda poked at me one night while listening to some tropical tunes. I got to thinking how funny it would be if Inuyasha unluckily found himself in charge of navigating Kagome on the open sea in search for her pod of whales. 2300 words. (Unedited, but will edit soon!)
“You’ll never get the mast up that way.”
Kagome twisted around with an arched eyebrow, surveying the
area for the location of the voice. But there was nothing but the gentle crash
of waves on the dock, and the black beady eyes of a seagull staring back at her
as he stood in wait for scraps on a stained wooden beam. (Which, joke’s on him
because she didn’t have money for any snacks today.)
She moved her head to the right and sure enough there was a
man; looking at her with a mix of confusion and…disdain? She blinked twice and
then righted herself, trying to place if she knew him or not, (trying to not be
distracted by the tanned sleeveless arms crossing his chest).
No certainly not, she’d recognize that silvery white hair (and
impressive frown) anywhere for sure if that were the case. There’s no way she’d
forget him so easily.
“I’m sorry do I know you from…?” She hedged, waiting for the
man to confirm they were strangers. But then his expression evolved quickly
into unexpected disappointment and she worried her bottom lip, second guessing
“No, guess not.” He shrugged almost like he had given up on
a very daunting task, then pivoted on his foot to start briskly walking towards
a tiny slop of a bar at the end of the boardwalk. Kagome tucked a stray strand
of hair behind her ear, only to have it fall back into her eyes.
Do you prefer Kagome with blue eyes or brown eyes? :)
I actually think gray eyed Kagome is best!
I owned the first two volumes for so long that’s the most canon to me personally. But I love all the eye colors. Most the time the eye color you see me draw is whatever the author in a fic I most recently read used for her.
kagomes mom is the real mvp of the series bc if my kid had gone missing for two days, and then shown up in priestess clothing, and then followed up by some fucking furry cosplayer I would I have moved. like say bye to grandpa kids we’re fucking leaving!!
