I do not own Inuyasha or the Avengers.

Steve didn't know what to do with himself. He still couldn't wrap his head around the world today. It was so different from the time he was from. Even after the incident, he was still just as clueless to the modern world.

War he understood. It didn't matter when or with what weaponry was available there was always two sides battling each other for their own causes. He fought for what he believed in and was thankful that the side he was on won, especially in that incident. He couldn't even fathom what the world would be like if Loki and the Chetauri had won. He shuddered just thinking about it.

He looked around and noticed he was on some random street. He had been walking for hours around New York. He had to get away from the others, especially Stark. That man could drive a man to drink. Looking to his left he noticed a diner. What the hell, he thought. I'm hungry.

Walking in Steve noticed that the place was deserted. There were three other customers in the place. It wasn't dirty but it wasn't as clean as some of the places he had eaten in recently. Tony liked to take everyone to restaurants that catered to the wealthy. He smirked. He didn't think Tony would step into this establishment. Grabbing a seat he looked at the other patrons.

There was a couple eating on the other side of the diner. They were very close, sitting almost in each other's laps. The girl was giggling as she fed some food to the guy she was with. He laughed as she missed his mouth. She tried again, succeeding and then reached up with her lips to get the bit clinging to the corner of his mouth. Steve smiled to himself.

"What can I get you?" the waitress asked as she set a menu in front of him. He ordered a coffee and started looking at the menu. The waitress came back with the coffee and he placed his order. After the waitress left he looked around the room to the other patron. It was a woman, sitting with some books. Her raven locks hung over her face blocking it from his view. He watched as the woman stopped what she was doing. She waved her hair from her face as she looked up at him. She was beautiful.


Kagome was studying for her test. She had picked this place because it was away from the hustle and bustle of her life. It was a quiet little diner far far away from them. As much as she loved her family, she couldn't stand being around them now. They were on pins and needles. After the incident with the aliens and the Avengers, there was talk. Talk about what to do with this new threat to the world, and how it would affect them. She knew she should be worried. She had a power that could rival the thing that was up on the Stark tower that started the whole invasion of New York. The vessel was different but the power felt the same. She shuddered at the thought of another Shikon no Tama floating around in the world. One was bad enough.

She was so lost in her thoughts that she wasn't paying attention to the person who had walked into the diner. The person's aura nudged hers a little but she didn't think anything of it. From time to time she felt a spark of a stronger aura but there was no power or knowledge of the power so she brushed it off as just another body. But after a few moments when the nudge continued she looked up. What she saw was a man. A gorgeous man looking right at her. He gave her a smile and her heart skipped a beat. She looked behind her to make sure that he wasn't looking at someone behind her. There was no one. She turned back around and saw him chuckle. She smiled back at him and quickly looked down. He was looking at her. Her. Her heart started to beat faster. It had been a long time since she felt this way. Not since the Feudal Era and Inuyasha. She smiled slightly as she thought of that. It hadn't been that long ago for her, just a few years. It didn't take her that long to get over it. She had to. When she returned from making a wish on the Jewel, he showed up on her door step a year later, with his family. She couldn't begrudge him the love that he found. And his kids, even though they were older than her she knew that she couldn't live without any of her nieces and nephews.

Kagome felt her phone go off, or rather heard the squawking that came from it. She cringed as she looked back up to see the guy looking at her still. She shrugged her shoulders in embarrassment as she answered the phone.

"What the hell kind of ringtone did you put on my phone?" she hissed. She could hear chuckling in the background as well as from the caller.

"You don't always answer the phone when I call, so I made sure you wouldn't have a choice wench. "

"What do you want Inuyasha?" she sighed as she tucked her hair behind her ear. She looked up slightly watching the waitress bring the beautiful man his meal. What lovely manners she thought as she watched him dazzle the waitress. She had been coming here for about a year now and never saw the waitress show any emotion whatsoever. But with just a few words he had her blushing. She chuckled as she watched the waitress pat her hair and straighten her blouse as she walked away.

"Hey. Hey Wench! Are you listening to me?"

"What?" she asked as she came back to the conversation she was having. She heard the cursing and another chuckle in the background.

"I asked where you are."

"The same place I'm always am when I'm studying for school. Why?"

"The kids are coming over. As well as Kouga and Shippo. They will be here in about two hours. You want me to send the car?"

"No!" she hissed. She didn't want a car to pick her up. She hated the car. She felt awkward in it. It didn't feel like her. She knew that this was how life was going to be like from now on, but she didn't want to have to like it. She didn't feel like she was one of the rich. But her family was and she needed to get used to it.

"How are you going to get back? You can't walk and have enough time to get ready."

"The car will be sent. Tell her to be ready." She heard him speak in the background. She sighed then. She knew she didn't have a choice now. Once he said something that was it.

"Okay. I'll be ready."

Inuyasha chuckled. "I will have Sesshoumaru tell you what to do from now on, since you never argue with him." He continued to chuckle as he hung up.


Steve continued to look at the beautiful woman across from him. She was gorgeous. Her long raven hair hung around her head in soft waves. She was Asian, but not. Her eyes, there were definitely not Asian. She had the brightest blue eyes he had ever seen on a person, like the ocean, he felt that he could drown in them. He was distracted when he heard the alarming squawking noise coming from her direction. He watched her cringe as she fished around her bag pulling out a phone. He thought it was kind of funny that she had programed such an annoying sound to come from it. He laughed in his hand when he heard her hiss at the caller. So it wasn't the woman who had put that god awful sound on her phone.

"Here you go sir," the waitress said as she placed his meal in front of him. He looked up at her when she was done and thanked her kindly. He started to eat as he looked over at the woman again. She was looking at him this time. He smiled as he took bite. He tried not to stare and tried to look discreetly at her. He could tell that she was arguing with someone about something, then noticed as she slumped her shoulders at the end of the conversation. She hung up and sighed. He watched her as she gathered her things. She left money on the table and headed past him. He looked up as she started to pass him. "Enjoy your meal." She said in a soft spoken voice. He smiled as their eyes met again. He felt a jolt as she walked by. HE turned in his chair and watched her from behind her hips softly swaying as she walked out of the diner. God, he thought. I hope I see her again.


Kami-sama, Kagome thought as she passed the beautiful man. She couldn't help herself. She wanted to say something to him. She felt a jolt as she passed him.

"Enjoy your meal." She said and smiled when the man acknowledged her words. She walked out the door thinking to herself. I hope I get to see him again.

A.N. Let me know what you think. I don't have a beta so please forgive an mistakes I have made.
