The Checklist by sesshomarusama33

Intelligence? Check.

Done for see03's "Superior Sense of Smell Challenge!" Thanks for inviting me! ^^



"I told ya you'd regret inviting him, Kagome!" Inuyasha yelled, pointing a clawed finger at his older brother, who sat at the base of a tall tree with a smug look on his face. "He's a bastard!"

"Inuyasha, osuwari!" Kagome yelled, clenching her fists as she tried to control her boiling blood. She glared in the direction of the demon, who smirked in her general direction. Kagome felt her eye twitch as she ran towards him. Sango jumped in front of her friend, attempting to hold her back before she killed herself.

"Kagome-chan, you must calm yourself!" Sango pleaded, holding her friend back. Kagome snarled at her, reaching her hands over Sango's shoulders and clenching her fingers.

"Let me at him, Sango! I want to rip that hair out of his pretty little head!" Kagome groweld, glinting mischeviously as she imagined squishing his hand between her thumb and index finger.

"Kagome-chan... Perhaps we should take a bath? I saw a spring nearby... The hot water might calm your nerves." Sango suggested, noticing that her friend was drooling with rage.

"Feh, it's gonna take a lot more than hot water to cool those nerves!" Inuyasha snorted, putting his hands in his sleeves as he sat cross-legged on the ground, a far ways away from the tachi.

"Just what did Sesshomaru-sama say to Kagome-sama to make her so upset?" Asked Miroku, who had been standing on the side-lines for a little while now.

"Sesshomaru-sama put that human wench in her place, didn't you, Sesshomaru-sama?!" Jaken huffed, his icky chest puffing with pride. A stone flew from the sky and landed on his head, effectively knocking him out cold.

"Stupid kappa..." Kagome muttered, calming down quite a bit as Sango released her. She continued to glare at the taiyoukai as she sat down, before closing her eyes and lifting her nose at him.

"Sesshomaru-sama didn't say anything to Kagome-sama. That's why Kagome-sama is so mad!" Rin smiled, giggling softly as she danced around Sesshomaru. "Please don't be mad at Sesshomaru-sama! That is how Sesshomaru-sama is!"

"Pfft. That's not why I'm mad! He called me stupid!" She yelled, hair flying in disarry as she felt her anger rise once more. "I am not stupid! I have a High School Diploma!"

"Hn. This Sesshomaru does not recall such a document. Clearly, you have made it up." The daiyoukai run a clawed hand through silken strands, smirking as he looked over his shoulder to see the miko fuming with rage.

"Just because you don't know what it is doesn't mean it doesn't exist! I worked hard to get that diploma! I studied every subject and passed each one!" Kagome yelled, determined to get appreciation for all the hard work she had put into graduation.

"Hn, if you are so educated... Prove it." Sesshomaru stated, flicking his hair once more. Kagome's brow twitched before she screamed, pulling her hair out.

"Fine! Just what do I have to do to earn your good graces, Sesshomaru-sama?" She ground out through clenched teeth, fisting her hands in her skirt as she watched the expressionless youkai grin in delight.

He gave her a list of questions, varying in all subjects - Math, Science, Writing, Geography, and History.

She snatched the list from him, taking out some odd sort of writing utensil from her bag and stalked to another tree, using one of her strange devices to write on as she worked on his list.

He watched with curiousity as she scribbled on the paper, eyes completely focused as she worked through it. She definitely was devoted to this test. He leaned his head on his hand, which was resting on his knee.

'I'm curious as to how the miko will fare.' He thought to himself.

She jumped to her feet and clenched the paper in her hands, fisting pumping the air as she raised her leg, standing on a log as she cheered to the sky.

"I'm finished! Take that, Sesshomaru-sama!" She grinned, being sarcastic with his honorific.

"Hn. Your cheers have not yet been earned, miko." He spoke, reaching his hand towards her, waiting for her test. She thrusted it into his hands and grinned, plopping next to him while his eyes searched the paper.

'She uses a strange form of math... yet the answers are correct. Eveything is correct...' he frowned, until he saw the geography portion of her test. He grinned, handing her back the test.

"You are wrong on one subject. You fail." He grinned, throwing the paper at her. She stood up and pointed her finger in his face, cackling loudly at him.

"You're damn right I passed! I told you I- W-WHAT?!" She yelled, grabbing the paper as it was thrown to her and looked at her test, making sure that all her answeres were right.

"The United States does not exist. Do you take This Sesshomaru for a fool, miko?" He asked, flicking silver tendrils over his shoulder.

"Baka! America was founded in 1776 when the Declaration of Independence was made! Thirteen colonies decided to join together and seperated from the British Empire! You don't know that because it HAPPENS IN THE FUTURE!" Kagome screeched, throwing the paper back at him and storming off in direction of the village, steam pouring from her ears.

Sango, Miroku and Inuyasha followed, taking the children with them, leaving the daiyoukai to an unconscious kappa and his thoughts.

He chuckled, looking at the paper in his hands before watching the miko walk away, cursing his name several times.

He mentally checked the list he had made earlier that same day.

'Demon? No. Intelligence? Check.'
