Never Say Never by Fluffys*Beauiful*Mate

Chapter One – It was Just an Accident

-Beep Beep Beep-

A hand flew at the alarm clock silencing the noisy racket. Groaning, a young girl sat up in her bed. "Uhh, it's 7 'o clock already? Well, I might as well get ready," she though to herself. Tossing back the covers she made her way to the bathroom.

Once there, Kagome Higurashi quickly got the settings to the shower just right and hopped in. After making sure she was wide awake and clean she got out. Wrapping a towel around her tiny frame she headed over to her closet.

"Hmm, what should I wear today?" she questioned. "I need something that will impress yet not seem so overpowering. Gah, I can't believe I'm getting so worked up over a simple interview!"

After minutes of debating, she finally chose a navy blue thigh length skirt with a nice light blue blouse.

"Yes! Now that this task is complete, it's time to eat!" On her way to the kitchen, she made a quick stop at the phone to call her friend Sango.

-Ring Ring-

"Hello," Sango answered.

"Hey Sango, its Kagome. I was just calling to see if you were still going to accompany me to my interview today?"

"Oh, hey Kags! Of course I still want to go! This is your big day after all," replied Sango.

"Ok, I'll be by around 8."

"Ok, I'll see you soon! Bye Kags," said Sango.

"Ok, bye."

Kagome hung up the phone. Halfway through eating her breakfast the realization of her interview soon began to hit her.

"I hope this interview goes well," thought Kagome. "This job would mean so much to me."

A few minutes later she was all set and primped to go for her big day. She walked out to her car and got in. But instead of starting the car, she just sat there not moving. Doubt began to cloud her thoughts.

'I really don't know if I should take this job,' she mulled. 'I mean, there are probably tons of other girls who could fill the position of secretary.' She sighed to herself. 'No, I can do this! I was picked out of many applicants for this interview. Yes, I will get it!'

With her confidence back again, she started her car and headed over to Sango's apartment. As she made a right turn, her cell phone went off. She reached over and picked it up. Sango's name popped up on the caller I.D. She flipped open the phone.

"Hello Sango," she answered.

"Kagome, where are you!? It's 7:45, you'll be late!" said Sango anxiously. Kagome began to laugh.

"What are you laughing about!?" said Sango a little annoyed. Kagome calmed herself down as to not piss Sango off. 'Yeah, definitely don't like seeing a pissed off Sango.' She grimaced at the thought of the last time Sango got pissed off.

"Sango, you act more nervous over this interview than I do, and it's my interview!" laughed Kagome.

"Well, I know this job means a lot to you and I want you to get it," answered Sango.

"I know Sango. I couldn't ask for a better friend. Thank you so much."

"That's what I'm here for!" exclaimed Sango.

"Oh, what would I do without you," said Kagome sarcastically.

"You would walk around in circles all day and not know what to do," stated a calm Sango.

Kagome rolled her eyes. "Sure Sango, whatever you say. Well, I have to get going."

"Ok, I still have to call Miroku and tell him I'll be with you today. I wouldn't want him to think that I left him," laughed Sango.

"Ok, well tell that lecher I said hi. I'll be at your apartment in a minute."

"Ok, see you soon. Bye Kags."

"Bye Sango."

Kagome hung up.

'What would I do without Sango,' she thought. 'How she got me this job interview at Taisho Corp. I'll never know.'

Kagome stopped at a stop sign. Looking both ways, she saw no cars so she stepped on the gas. All of a sudden she heard a horn honking at her but it was to late.


She hit a car. Shaking herself out of her daze, she checked herself over to make sure she was ok. Once she cleared herself on having nothing broken and nothing bleeding she got out of her car. She then checked the damage to her car.

'Hmm, it's not that bad, only a little crunching to the front of my car.' She then hurried over to the car that she hit. 'Oh, I wonder if they are ok?'

Once there she saw the man that she hit was sitting in his car talking on his cell phone. She glanced over him and could see no blood or broken bones, she concluded that he was indeed ok. She walked over to his car door and looked in.

As he turned Kagome gave him a good look over. He was wearing probably one of the most expensive suits she had ever seen. 'Must be Armani,' she thought. She noticed he was very nice looking with his long silver hair, smooth face, slender nose, and hard golden eyes that were glaring right at her. Wait, glaring?

'Pull yourself together Kagome, you just hit him! See if he's ok. That's what you came here to do, not stare.'

"Umm, hello. My name is Kagome Higurashi. I apologize for hitting you. I didn't see anybody coming when I stopped so I went. I'm really sorry." She looked down at her feet.

She looked up to him when he didn't reply. She saw him looking at her. Then he finally replied.

"Can you move out of my way," he stated.

"WHAT!?" screeched Kagome, surprised at his abrupt rudeness and how cold his voice sounded.

"Can you move from the car door so I may get out or do you want to stand there looking stupid all day," said the man.

"Sorry," she mumbled as she backed away.

The man got out and stretched. After a few moments, he spoke again.

"Do you always drive without looking?"

"I already told you what happened," said Kagome through gritted teeth. This man was absolutely infuriating! 'He doesn't even introduce himself and then questions me when I've already told him what happened!' She could feel her anger growing so she tried to calm herself down. When she opened her eyes, she saw the man look at her and raise an elegant eyebrow.

"So how do you plan on paying for the damages to my car," said the man in a bored tone.

"I don't know but I will pay for you damn car," she growled out.

The man stared at her and for a split second shock could be seen in his eyes. Then he composed himself.

"What did you say your name was again?" he asked.

"Oh, my name is Kagome!" She smiled. "What's yours?"

"My name is Sesshomaru."

Kagome paled. "Y-y-you mean as in Sesshomaru Taisho, as in the President of Taisho Corps?"

'Oh please, let this just be some weird coincidence that this guy is named Sesshomaru!' she prayed to herself.

"That would be correct," stated the man.

Kagome eyes went wide. "Oh my Kami-sama!"

'I just hit the guy who I'm supposed to be taking an interview with today! I'll never get the job now!' said Kagome as she passed out.
