Chapter 7: No Refunds
It was hours before Kagome could bring herself to sleep, and almost two days before she could look into the mirror. The full impact of what she had told Inuyasha weighed her down. What was his real reaction to her story? She had carried Hojo's secret most of her life, and it made her feel very old. There were times when she resented him for that, but then she felt guilty for being angry with him. It was a volatile circle she went in, but by telling Inuyasha, she'd broken it. For the first time in months, it was really like she wasn't alone.
When it was Christmas Eve, Rin and Sango appeared on Kagome's porch first thing in the morning. In their arms, they carried amps and instruments. Kagome showered and dressed quickly, tossing the costumes she had made for the three of them into a bag and departing for the concert early. Her family agreed to meet them later.

Chances were that he wouldn't be back until Christmas Eve night. Inuyasha's mother was worried, but Sesshomaru told her not to bother him. He, Sesshomaru, would have a talk with his little brother.

Chapter 5: Under the Christmas Tree
Kagome spent most of her weekend in her room. Someone had read her notebook, the most sacred possession she owned. The one thing that no one was ever supposed to see in her lifetime. And who was the person to read it? The one person she would have killed to keep from reading it. Questions flitted through her mind. Did he read all of it? Did he understand it? Could he tell what the last entries, the poem and the songs could he know?
"No," Kagome told herself harshly. "There is no way in all the seven hells that he could know what any of that meant. He's never read Light and the Darkness, he wouldn't know the metaphor." But if there was one thing about Inuyasha that she knew, it was that he was not dense. He may have been immature and self-centered, but he was far from stupid. He might know that the poem was referring to him.
Kagome ran her fingers through her hair and fell back on to her pillows. There really wasn'
