Iniqui

The click clack of a pair of red bottom heels echoed on concrete as a young twenty something with bold blue eyes and raven hair made her way down the scorching side walk. The day was hot, which was evidenced by the beads of sweat forming on her forehead that threatened to ruin her makeup before she quickly dabbed them away with the handkerchief clutched in her hand.

Finally, she approached a building with the golden monogram HS&W LLP elegantly scribbled across the large glass doubled doors. Prior to attempting to pull one of the heavy glass portals she adjusted the collar of her navy blue blazer and smoothed her skirt. Taking a deep breath, she entered the building filling the corridor with the echo of her knock off Louboutin’s as they met with the marbled tiles.

“Good morning Goten!” She waved to the security guard sitting behind an enclosed desk in the corner of the room adjacent to the elevators. “Has Mr. Higurashi made it in yet?”

“Yes ma’am-” Goten replied enthusiastically, “he went up about 20 minutes ago.”

She nodded once before pressing the up button for the elevator. With a ding, the elevator’s doors slid open and she quickly stepped inside before pressing the button labeled 13 on the elevator key pad. Just as the doors began sliding closed an arm covered by the sleeve of a charcoal suit jacket and a wrist adorned with a rose gold Invictica watch abruptly stopped her departure causing the doors to jerk back open.

She followed the arm to a tall young man, about 6’4”, with almost golden eyes and platinum blonde hair cut in a pompadour style and looking to be no more than 30 years of age. As she became acquainted with his muscular frame and chiseled features, she barely registered his smooth deep voice saying, “13 please.”

The young woman nodded mutely before saying, with an outstretched hand in his direction “Kagome, and you are?” The handsome man regarded her awkwardly before grasping her hand with a firm shake and simply saying, “Sesshoumaru.”  The elevator filled with an uncomfortable silence as each attempted to avoid making any further eye contact through the duration of the elevator ride.

As soon as the elevator arrived at its destination, Kagome hastily made her way to her office as her new “acquaintance” went in the opposite direction.

Greeting her secretary, whose desk was outside her office nearest the elevator, she was ambushed with files and coffee as she attempted to remove her blazer.

“Ms. Higurashi, your father left you a message to meet him in his office upon your arrival. He’d like you to meet the new recruit, your 2:00 cancelled and your 8:30 called saying they were running behind schedule. Also Judge Jacobson called and said that the jury has reached a verdict on the Kramer murder trial and he would like to meet with you soon.” The woman spoke in one breath while walking quickly behind Kagome and taking her jacket and brief case.

“Thank you, Sango. Have you decided what you’re doing for lunch today?”

Sango looked away bashfully then shook head in the negative and said, “I should be free to pick up a bite with you.”

After a few more pleasantries and Sango's nervous giggles Kagome fixed her blouse and asked Sango how she looked.

"Beautiful." She responed. Kagome didn't miss the serious tone of Sango's voice before she brushed it off and thanked her.

She quickly made her way down the long corridor to her father’s office. Upon her arrival she came face to back with the same man from the elevator as her father’s boisterous voice welcomed her into his office.

“Kagome! Come inside, and close the door behind you!” Doing as he said she took her place standing in front of Mr. Higurashi’s desk.

“I’d like you to meet Sesshoumaru Tanaka.” Shaking his hand again she told her father, “Yes, we met on the elevator.”

“Is that right?” He replied in Sesshoumaru’s direction. Sesshoumaru nodded as Mr. Higurashi continued introducing him. “Well, he graduated magna cum laude from University of California, Berkeley, he interned with Gibson Dunn and Crutcher in LA for three summers, went on to work for WilmerHale at the Capital for a few years and now he’s here with us! He’s a ball buster, and if his name is any indicator, I think he’s going to win us a hell of a lot more cases! I’d like you to show him around a little bit and I’m putting him on that Jefferson vs. Malone case with you.”

The Jefferson vs. Malone case was a high profile case that she had busted her ass to get, and this guy walks in on the first day with a slap on the ass, a how you doing, abracadabra and poof! High profile case! Kagome was livid inside, but did her best to hold her composure as she nodded in the affirmative and told Sesshoumaru to follow her.
