Here We Go Again
Sequel to Just One Little Mistake
Chapter 1: Not Even Time Can Heal These Emotional Scars
Kagome smiled as she began to sing her last song; after all, this one was the popular one. Many teens liked it, for the out-going bashing. So she sang it with all her heart and soul. Afterwards Kagome stopped and bowed before thanking everyone and exiting. Inuyasha met her and she flopped into his arms. "You exhausted?" he asked bluntly.
"More than most people can understand. Inuyasha, let's go home." He nodded before picking her up and going to his car.
"It's been three years Inuyasha. You think people would get tired of me by now?"
"Never, you've got a beautiful singing voice."
"It's been two months since I've been home. I'm so glad that this tour ended. How's everyone?" she asked anxiously.
"Well, Inuya and Inuyasha Jr. got there report cards in, they're doing fine. Souta has a girlfriend, as far as I know. Kara is just starting to draw and write out sentences. Sango and Miroku are going to have a girl in two weeks. That's when she's due anyway..."
Kagome laughed, "They're still inexperienced, not as experienced as us anyway. We already have three kids, this is their second one, and still they have trouble keeping M.J. in line. How are they going to manage another one?"
Inuyasha flicked her right hanyou ear, "I don't know, don't really care. As long as it isn't one of our children asking little kids to bear his child! M.J got his father's brains."
Kagome smiled as they pulled up to the shrine. It was their home, and everyone from feudal Japan still had access to them, as long as they kept the well house. Many people had come to buy it, and they all got turned down. Her company had tried to sell it, but Kagome and Inuyasha refused so many times that they gave up. Kagome opened the door and found a big surprise. The house was clean, as it always was when she came back, but all her friends and family were there. "Surprise!" they all yelled at her.
Kagome smiled as Kara came up to her, "Mommy! You're home now!"
Kagome nodded to her and picked her up. Sango, M.J, and Miroku smiled and hugged her. "It's been too long. We should catch up soon," whispered Sango.
Souta wheeled in and gave her a smile, "Are you okay?"
Inuya and I.J came running in, "Mama!" She hugged each one of them and settled down. Sure, it looked perfect, but something was missing. She knew, as well as everyone else in the room, her parents that had promised her that they would be there forever, weren't there.
Kagome let the tears fall, this is her family, they understood. "Kagome, please don't cry. Didn't we agree that we had cried enough over that?" Inuyasha stated softly. He wiped the tears away, "We'll be fine."
Kagome looked up and smiled, "I know Inuyasha, but I can't help it..." Inuyasha sighed; he heard Miroku and Sango quietly excuse themselves from the room, taking the four kids with them. Souta stayed.
"You don't think I'm not angry at them either? They left me when I needed them the most, but they turned away. I've seen mom walking down the street, and I've stopped and stared at her as she smiles at me like a stranger. She's forgotten about us, I know she has. I know where she lives; I've followed her home once. All the pictures of us are put away," Souta stated to Kagome.
"I know... I've followed her home too. The thing I find most disturbing is that she bought my two records. When I stayed around her place, I could here her playing them. It sounded like she was crying..." Kagome said quietly, knowing that it was possible for someone to cry, but her mom was another thing.
"Well, every song you wrote, it was sort of about our situation," Souta said calmly, he wasn't about to lose it to Kagome.
"Yeah... I guess your right. I'm sorry for ruining my own party; I guess it's just my emotions."
Inuyasha hugged her, "Its okay Kagome, its okay." Inuyasha released her, and told Souta to take out the cake. Inuyasha called the other people back in to the kitchen. They celebrated like it was normal again, but Kagome couldn't help it. When Sango, Miroku, and M.J left, since everything was tidied before they left, Kagome took a shower and put the kids to bed. It was almost ten, and they had school tomorrow.
"Goodnight, Inuya and I.J-kun."
"Mommy, when is your next tour?" asked Inuya.
"It's not till after December and February. Don't worry, it's only October, I won't be going anywhere." The twins nodded and didn't say anymore.
"Kagome, let's go to bed now." Inuyasha whispered in her ear.
"Yes, let's go." Inuyasha picked her up and carried her to their room.
"So many memories are in this house Inuyasha. I move on, but then the memory of my mom and I am doing so many fun projects comes back. I want her to come back, but then again I don't. Do you know what I mean?"
Inuyasha nodded, "I wanted Kikyo back, once, and do you remember that?"
"Of course! Who couldn't forget that?"
Inuyasha nodded, "Well, only at times did I want her."
"Confessions of a Hanyou, I see a book being made about that one day. Coming soon to your book stores!"
"Stop it, that's unfair." He whined as he placed her on the bed.
"That's your problem. It's actually funny, seeing you whine about almost nothing."
Kagome laughed at his puzzled face. "It's so good to be back with you Inuyasha. I've missed you the most; after all, you were the one with me through everything. Almost."
Kagome kissed him, "But you've made up for those nine weeks. Souta-kun seems to like thinking you as more of a father figure. Since Grandpa never really was a great influence."
"Why do you say that?"
"He tried to chase you away, he hated me after the fact, he despised you more than ever, and need I say more?"
Inuyasha shook his head, "No, you needn't. I think though, while you're on this long break, we should go visit Shippo. Last time I saw the fur ball was two years ago."
"Okay, we'll go visit him. I've missed him; I haven't seen him since I was nineteen. That was too long for me. Does he have kids yet?"
"Nope, he says that they're going to wait on it. Akane seemed to have a real hold on him, though; you should see him when she speaks."
Kagome laughed, "Yeah, it's about time that Shippo got his own love. Now he knows why we fell in love, he knows it now."
Inuyasha caught Kagome yawning, "It's time to put you to sleep. You've had a really hectic two months; time to sleep in your own bed." Kagome nodded and snuggled close to him.
"I know that I miss my parents, Inuyasha, but my family, the one we've created, supports me more than they ever did. That's why I love you, more than anything in the world. Too bad they never saw what I saw, because you're truly a good person. I trust my life in your hands, anytime, anywhere..." Kagome drifted off to sleep. She didn't notice Inuyasha's eyes soften, and no one in the house saw the wheeled chaired figure sitting at the telephone.
"I know, Mom. You handed me over to Kagome because you hated me. I found this number. Call back as soon as you can. My cell is 719-201-6563, please call me back."
That single message was left before the wheel chaired person went to his own room.
