Cute but deadly
It was raining...
Sneezed loudly, Kagome moved herself further back into the rock-face, the small crevice she found was just large enough for her and her pack to fit and at the top of the cliff overhanging vines dropped down creating a sort of roof over the crevice that kept most of the rain out, not enough to keep her completely dry but enough to keep her from been pelted from the heavy rain outside.
She sneezed again and wrapped her arms around her knees in misery, outside the rain continued to fall and it didn't look like the sun was going to out any time soon. Jagged rock edges poked her continuously no matter what position she was in, sighing in irritation, she prepared herself for a long wait, she was just beginning to dose when the sound of a snapping twig made her eyes snap open, after weeks of traveling by herself Kagome had grown accustomed to waking at a moment's notice, this ability had saved her from many surprise attacks in which she would have been otherwise caught unaware.
Staring intensely, Kagome eyed the bushes from which the noise had come from, the crevice was too narrow for her to use her bow, so she knew that if she was attacked that her defense would be very limited, the only thing she could do was put her pack in the entrance to make it harder for her 'maybe' attackers to get to her. The bushes she was watching rustled and Kagome went rigid in anticipation, the bushes rustled again and out came... a small stripped squirrel.
Kagome felt her body relaxed, her relief visible, as the small wet creature nosed around in the grass for any nuts or seeds, it's nose gave a little twitch and Kagome felt her insides turn to mush, as her weakness for soft, furry animals overcame her, her fingers twitched in longing to pat that soft fur but she knew that any sudden movement would cause the squirrel to take off, so she stayed put and watched as it went about its business undisturbed.
This was the most entertaining thing to happen in the last 7 hours.
Kagome resisted the urge to groan out loud in frustration, for an annoying piece of the rock wall was pressing uncomfortably into her ribs, she had to shift from her semi comfortable position to dislodge it and as she did that she accidentally caused a bit of the rock-wall to break and crumble to the ground, which was loud enough to alert the squirrel of possible danger. It's head snapped up and it span around to stare at her, Kagome froze as the animal eyed her for a few moments before apparently deciding that she was no threat and went back to nosing around for food.
Kagome sighed and lent her head against the rock wall, she was happy to note that it looked like the rain was starting to ease and she could see rays of sunlight trying to break through the heavy clouds. As she was examining the sky she failed to realize that the small squirrel had made its way to just a few feet from the crevice entrance, it was so close that if she reached out she would be able to touch it, so she did, finally caving in to her weakness of small, fluffy animals.
She gently moved her pack to one side and reached tentatively towards the small creature, she was just a fingertip away when, the squirrel sensing her movement, span round and suddenly lunged at her outstretched fingers with it top lip peeled back displaying dozens of razor sharp teeth, the lips curled back in a way that looked like it belonged more on a shark then a squirrel.
Kagome squeaked and pulled her hand back just narrowly missing being bitten, she stared wide eyed as the squirrel hissed and snarled at her, its tail twitched back and forth like it was deciding whether to attack again or not, it's small beady black eyes turned red and they gleamed up at her eerily, Kagome, feeling very much unnerved put her pack back in front of her so that it stood between her and the pissed off demonic squirrel.
The creature lunged at her again with mouth agape and tore a ragged hole into her pack, Kagome, after watching that, was glad that it was her bag being assaulted from the squirrel demon thing and not her vulnerable flesh, because judging from the hole it would have been a severe injury. She watched in horrified silence as the demon squirrel backed away, mouth working frantically to remove the fibers that has gotten lodged into its razor teeth.
She vowed at that moment, that Inuyasha could never find out about this, for if he did he would never let her live it down, cause really...being attacked by a demonic squirrel? Heck even she would even laugh if she wasn't scared half to death.
The demon squirrel, after removing the fibers from it's teeth, started to pace a few feet away but it didn't attempt to attack again, it peeled back it's lip and bared its teeth in what Kagome suspected was a mocking grin before it took off and disappeared into the undergrowth leaving her to stare after it.
'Note to self' Kagome thought numbly, 'if it's cute and fluffy... it will most likely try to kill you.'
Oh, but look the rain stopped.
