and Sky, will be posted up within the week. For all of you who
enjoy OC stories such as this one, You'll thoroughly enjoy my
Now…on with the tale!)
I sat behind a tree, hidden from the rest of the group. I muttered under my breath about the stupid moon. I had forgotten all about it until the last second, and I was lucky that Kagome-ka-san had remembered what time of month it was. I hated my human form with all my might, and nothing was ever going to change that.
also knew my secret; Kagome had decided to tell her. It was natural,
she had said, that the leader of the gang should know what was going
on. I scoffed at this. Our group had no leader; Cho was just older
then all the rest of us. Also, it meant one more person would know
when I vulnerable, and I sure as hell didn't like that.
My aunt had long ago come up with a way to make my scent smell the same, she had used it herself when she had been young. Though I had had no real reason of using tit before, it sure did come in handy now. I'd have to remember to thank her when I saw her again, I'd told myself.
However, as the night drew on, a certain member of our group had decided to take notice of my seclusion and pick fun at me. Higure…oh, she was so dead when I got my claws on her! Her taunts weren't much at first, but they got annoying faster then one would like to think.
"Oh, such a little Daddy's girl, aren't you?" I heard her say, an almost pleasant growl under-toned. I growled at this; it was the last straw! Well, I tried to growl, but unfortunately human are not very good at growling. Higure, however, seemed to take advantage of this as an excuse to finally go the ultimate provocation. She tackled me.
Screeching, I fought back, but she had me over-powered now. She was a
demoness and I was human; but I had rage on my side. We rolled out
where the others were, looked together in a writhing battle. I could
hear Oka-san and Cho shouting at us, telling us to knock it
Neither of us heard them, nor did we care. We were locked together in a vicious warfare, neither one giving any ground. Finally, Cho and Oka-san pried us apart. Panting, I glared at Higure, who was more than glad to glare back. As I looked up I realized Kagome-ka-san was also glaring, but it wasn't at Higure. I lowered my gaze from hers, but they could not force me to apologize.
Suddenly the whole group was on us like a pack of worgs. Most of the voices were scolding, though I heard Otu-san say some thing like 'That's my girl,' before he was silenced by the others. Higure seemed just as stubborn as I was; she was shaking her head and even daring to snap at Cho. Finally, she struggled out of her grip and launched herself at me; I followed, doing the same.
There was the smack of flesh hitting flesh as we collided with one another. It was awhile before we could be pried apart from one another, and we both ended up tied to a tree, our hand behind our backs. We continued however, to fire insults at one another.
"What kind of fight did you call that?" I snapped. "You couldn't even beat me and I'm human!"
"Well maybe I would have fought harder if it wasn't so easy, slow ass!" she snapped right back.
"The only thing that's stupid was that insult, you human bitch!"
"Freak of nature!"
"ENOUGH!" shouted Cho and Kagome-ka-san together. They then
proceeded to unceremoniously gag both my and Higure. Though our
tongues were silenced, our anger and dislike was clearly reflected in
our eyes. When the group went to sleep, they were still tied to their
I had just maybe though about getting some sleep when I suddenly heard a flutter and a snap. My head swiveled and I saw Higure standing by here tree; she had somehow managed to chew through her gag and cut her bonds. I expected her to be smirking at me, but instead she wasn't even paying attention to me.
Higure's head and ears were flicking about, alert. Suddenly she gave a sudden sharp bark.
"Guys get up! Now!" she yelled. The others were up instantly, but somehow they seemed to have forgotten me. I struggled to be noticed as we were attacked. It was a pack of demons, small but strong. Most of the others drew the demons away from the campsite, but Higure had stayed behind to spar with her demon there.
Suddenly, another demon appeared and it was on me before I could do anything. I tried to call for help but I couldn't. The demon raised a sickle-like claw to strike when suddenly he was clawed in two. I looked up and saw Higure there. I had barely any time to get over my shock before Higure cut me loose and pulled me behind her.
Suddenly Higure skidded, trying to stop. I saw just why she was. The scent trail had led to a cliff-face where the others had lured the demon pack, but Higure and I didn't know this. Neither of us could stop in time, and we both went over.
The memory of my last cliff fall came to my mind in a flood of panic. If a cliff fall had almost killed me in my normal form, what would it do to me in human form? I braced myself for pain, and sure enough it came. I hit rock fast, but I didn't continue falling. I slowly opened my eyes, and I realized I was on a ledge that out-cropped.
"Hi…gure?" I said weakly, looking around for her. I heard a call from above, and looked up to see Higure reaching down for me. I saw that she had managed to grip onto a particularly strong tree root that stuck out of cliff-side. I managed to reach up and grab her out-stretched hand, as the only thing that seemed to be paining me this time was my left leg.
As she pulled me up with her, I said softly, "I thought you hated me…" I felt her gaze linger on me for a minute, then she looked away and said.
"You? Think? Ha, I'd like to see proof of that." Normally I would have bristled at this, taking it as an insult, but I caught a certain playful air hidden under the haughtiness. Higure broke through my thoughts as she tried to help me stand up, but I winced and fell back to the ground.
"Higure, I-" I could never finish the words out of my mouth before Higure had me on her back and was carrying me back to the others. I just clung there for a minute, stunned, and then I realized it. I looked back to Higure, and this time, I finally saw her in a new light.
(Yes I know. Cheesy ending. Get over it. And Higure if you think I didn't play you good well…suck it up. Anyways…Bye ya'll!)
