Okay, this is another old story written in 2004-2005 when Animespiral was up. Some of you might remember it. I had only posted it on that site and when it went down, I had not posted it since but some of you have been asking me to post it so I am. Note that this story has been revised. It was written years ago, and poorly, I might add since I was new to writing so I edited it myself.
Another reason for adding this too is because someone on this site has informed me of a plagiarizer on Mediaminer. They posted it on that site and claimed it was theirs! Verbatim! The same title, same title for the chapters, I could not believe it!
Anyway, most of you already know that I wrote this story but for some of you, you don't know. Anyway, on that site, that person only posted five chapters because at the time, that was all I had written but the story is finished already and with each chapter edited, I will post it all. Thank you so much for reading guys.
Another note…this is an Inuyasha/Kagome pairing. I wrote this before I got into Sesshomaru/Kagome pairings. I hope you still can enjoy it.
A fair warning:
Even though I cleaned it up a bit, there is a lot of invective language. Forgive me but I wrote this when I was around a teen myself so you will sense the anguish I had portrayed for the characters.
Chapter 1-New life, New town…shoot me.
So I finally got this stupid book cause my friend Sango recommended that a diary would be good for me and I'd put much use into it since I have so much to say. Quite frankly, the girl could have plainly said, "I'm tired of hearing you nag, get a fuckin' journal." So here I am, writing in my new journal. Ok...what do I say?
My name is Kagome...Kagome Higurashi...God, I hate my name. Anyway, I am 16 years old and I just moved into this boring town a week ago. My summer sucked ass since most of it was spent packing and following my mom around on her stupid errands. I left all of my friends back home, well, I'm exaggerating, friend is more like it. Sango. She was the only other person out there as cool, morbid and anti-blithe as I am, not to sound conceited, But everyone back home was a trendy zombie that had no direction in life but to impress other lame ass preps, (I hate them), so that they can have their little crowds of mindless robots walking around, just looking pretty.
Anyway, going back to the matter at hand, So far, in this dead town of inbreeds, I haven't seen anyone my age and no cool places to hang out. This place is the complete opposite of the urban life I attended to once. Bottom line, this place sucks monkey balls and I am stuck here, well at least until I'm 18 and then I can escape to wherever the fuck I want to, which is most likely the circus. Or to New York City and sell my body off for a reasonable price....just kidding, that was for you, mom, in case you're reading this...How's the heart? Well, I'm off. Maybe this diary thing isn't so bad. I'll keep you updated. Laterz!
Kagome sighed as she looked around her plain white room. Boxes stood on the side, unopened. She frowned as she stared at the boring squared room that reminded her of a hospital. This is just great, she thought. There really wasn't anything to do. The only good thing that came out of this tragic change was her new car. Her mom had bought her a black jeep, but where could she go in this never-ending tree nightmare. She decided to call her friend back home, Sango, to see what was going on. She walked toward the phone as she heard rapid footsteps coming down the stairs. Her younger brother, Sota, ran past her and stopped immediately as he stared at her with his eyes wide and his mouth opened.
"Ew.What did you do to your hair? Mom's gonna get mad." Sota teased.
"Get out of my face" Kagome sighed as she shoved the boy's face away from her with one hand as she picked up and dialed the phone with the other. Sota continued to make faces and bothered her more.
"Sota, I am not playing with you, I going to stick my fist in your----....Oh, Hi...Ahem...Is Sango there?" Kagome said sweetly after changing her demonic tone. She shot ominous glares at her pesky brother and sent the boy sprinting back up stairs. A soft voice came on to the phone humming a song.
" Hey, Who's this?" her friend said, still humming.
"Who the fuck do you think it is?" said Kagome.
"Oh...well if it isn't the host to the other half of my brain. How's it going over there? Did you find out how you're going to off yourself yet?"
Kagome chuckled. "Yeah, right. You only wish you had a brain, and no, I haven't thought of anything yet. Any ideas? What's going on over there?"
"Nothing really, I kind of have a surprise...but I'll tell you in a little while cause I love to torture you. So I take it you did nothing new in the week you've been there?" Sango said monotonically.
"Actually, I dyed my hair, it has purple streaks and I cut it. I don't know what the hell I did, I just started chopping away" Kagome said as she twirled a strand of the purple hair to her face to observe it.
"Damn, Kagome, did you do it to piss your mom off?" Sango yelled into the phone.
Kagome pursed her lips. " Sorta, but she didn't see it yet. Besides, I wanted a change. Whatever, she should be happy that I'm adapting so quickly to this new lifestyle of ours."
"That's just great, Kagome, after all the sacrifices and begging, and you know how much I hate to beg..." Sango harrumphed.
Kagome stared at the wall, blankly and gazed down at the receiver. " Um...what are you talking about?"
"I just begged my mom for two straight whole days to let me live with you so I can go to school with you. Since she does her traveling crap, I managed to convince her and she finally gave in as long as your mom says it's ok, That's the begging part."
"Here come the sacrifices." Sango fumed. "Since you seemed so depressed and on the verge of
hanging yourself which you promised you wouldn't do unless I watched, I gave up everything, and Kagome...I mean everything!"
Kagome's eyes widened." You mean..."
"Yes, you fuckin' stink rag, I mean every fuckin' thing! Got it! So get on your mom's good side and you beg your ass off, you hear me? So help me, Buddha, I will freaking camp out in your back yard if I have to."
Kagome laughed. " Okay, okay, I got it, I'll call you back. Is there a deadline on this you coming out here?"
"Yup, there is actually a deadline now that you mention it; I have until tomorrow to find out. If your mom says no, I still have to forfeit all of my things only because I promised to be more charitable."
"Well, where do your things go to?" Kagome asked, curiously. She knew this only made Sango madder.
"They go to the fuckin' needy, I don't know! My mom is like a major fuckin' yuppie, She'll probably give my IPod, and DVD player to the kids in Cambodia, She says I'm too materialistic. Anyway, Go ask your mom, Call me in an hour, I'm going to go burn some furniture."
Before Kagome could speak, she heard the dial tone and hung up the phone. Just as she did, her mother came out holding a couple of boxes. She stared at her and smiled. "Oh, hey honey, did you unpack yet?"
Kagome blankly stared at her mom and looked back to see if maybe she was talking to Sota.
"Kagome, honey, did you hear me?" her mother asked, placing the boxes down.
"Oh, uh, yeah." Kagome nodded. Which, she didn't. In fact, she didn't even touch the boxes once the movers dropped it in her room. Kagome began to tug on her hair to draw her mom's attention to it. Her mom smiled and walked passed her to the kitchen.
"So, you dyed you hair…and cut it. By the way, I noticed you made a mess in the bathroom and I expect you to clean it up?"
"Yes, Mom, I will. Um, mom? I was wondering, well, Sango's mom is traveling again around Asia and Africa and was wondering if Sango could stay with us and go to school with me?" she said, immediately putting her puppy dog face and setting up her opposing argument that she was about to have with her mother once she declined.
"That sounds great. Sure, she can stay with us, When will she be coming?" her mom said putting together the table.
Kagome frowned. That was too easy. " Um...I guess Tuesday? School starts Wednesday, and we still need to get School stuff."
"Ok, honey, well, that'd be great. If you'll excuse me though, I have a lot of things to do. We'll go over the details later. I have to make the house look pretty now." she smiled as she turned her attention at assembling the pieces to the table.
Kagome turned away to walk toward the phone but faltered a moment. She waited for her mom to just jump up and say "I'm kidding, do you think I'm stupid, I don't want you to be happy and I want you to suffer! (Evil laugh) But it didn't happen. She half smiled as she walked towards the phone to call Sango. She told Sango the good news, which somehow Sango wasn't exactly thrilled about due to the fact she was still mourning over her lost and forfeited items. She'll get over it.
The next week, Kagome woke up and scrambled to her feet. She lunged forth to the bathroom to beat her brother and slammed the bathroom door in his face, laughing and taunting him. She stared at her reflection and frowned. Although Sango was moving in, she still was a little depressed. Her parents had just gotten divorced. They separated a while ago but the divorce became official a month ago. This hurt her mostly because she still thought maybe there was a chance her parents would get back together. She stared at her plum-midnight hair and rubbed the sleep from her eyes. She was to pick up Sango in two hours from the airport. She brushed her teeth and washed her face before returning back to her room to pick out her wardrobe. She looked around and smiled. The room had potential, especially now that she was sharing it with Sango. She walked towards her closet and picked out a black denim jacket and threw it over a white shirt. She grabbed a pair of army green cargos, her boots from the bottom of her bed and began to get dressed. Her cell phone rung on her dresser, startling her. She picked it up and winced at hearing loud static on the other line.
"Dude, I got here earlier than expected. Where are you?" Sango shouted over the static.
"You said it yourself, you're early! Just give me a sec to put on my pants. I'm out the door in five."
"Could you hurry up? People here are weird looking and I am about to shoot someone if they continue to gawk at me like I don't notice!"
"Ok, calm down. Don't get in trouble already. I'll be there soon. Where are you?"
"I'm in the...I think it's the cafeteria" Sango informed.
"Yeah, ok, stay put..." Kagome hung up the phone and ran out of her room. She ran down the stairs and got into her jeep. She popped in a CD, and drove off blasting the stereo; by standers frowning as she passed.
When Kagome arrived at the airport, she began searching for her friend. She knew it wouldn't be too hard searching for her since Sango really stood out. Everyone in this town dressed almost the same with their khaki pants and pastel sweaters. All she had to look for was something dark and shiny.
She walked into the cafeteria and saw a whole bunch of people huddle around the middle. Kagome walked past them to see what they were staring at and saw a familiar outstanding face making a scene with the coffee barista.
"You've got to be shitting me! How do you not know what a latte is? Is the 2005?" she stopped and saw Kagome. "What is this place, Kag? It's a fuckin' nightmare. How is your mother going to move you guys here? It's like…prehistoric." Sango fumed as she dragged her suitcase. "That's it, I'm going back home, I will not survive here. Sorry, Kagome. I tried. Go kill yourself, I do not blame you. In fact, I'll buy you the gun. See how great of a friend I am?"
Kagome laughed as she pulled Sango away from the departing gates. Sango tried to pull herself away but groaned as she followed.
"You're so dramatic, Sango. Just get in the car and stop making such a scene!"
"A scene? Kagome…they don't know what latte's are! Where have you ever heard such nonsense? I'm sure they have latte's in Africa!"
"You're such a coffee fiend. Come on, let's get back home before my mother changes her mind."
Kagome sighed as she threw her friend's suitcase in the backseat and ignored her sulking face as they got into the car. Sango pouted as she sank in the passenger seat mumbling obscene and inaudible words. People stared at her as she hung her head out the window, looking pathetic and desperate for someone to whisk her away. She had glitter all over her face and green eye shadow to compliment her green contacts. Her hair was long and black with pink and red streaks. She wore a tight corset with black jeans. She definitely looked like she wasn't from around here. She flipped off those who continued to leer at her and pouted at Kagome.
" Oh come on, stop acting like a kid, Think about it, we're in a new place, no one knows us, or how we were back home, Technically, you live on your own. Make the best of it."
Sango sighed as she tried to absorb it. Afterward, a small smile grew on her lips. "Yep, and I have mommy's plastic." she said dangling a credit card between her fingers as Kagome eyed it.
"You are such a brat. What was the point of giving up your things?" Kagome rolled her eyes as she merged into the highway.
"I don't know. I guess my mom felt bad for me. Besides...it's only for 'Emergencies'. So, hurry up, let's get to a mall and spend this thing."
"I thought it was only for emergencies?" Kagome laughed.
Sango pulled out a cigarette and placed it between her lips. She threw her hands out into the road and pointed at the destitution. "What the fuck do you think this is?"
Kagome sighed. "I thought you moving out here would get my mind off of this place but you only keep pointing out its shittyness."
Sango groaned and lit her cigarette. "Alright, my bad. Okay? We are in this shithole together, so let's fuckin' rule it, you in?"
Kagome scoffed. "Yeah."
"So come on, school starts tomorrow and I still have to get school things. I need to get a bed and let us not forget the important thing—clothes." Sango said giddily all of a sudden perking up.
"Alright. We'll go to a mall but first, let's drop your stuff at the house so we can make it official. I need to pick up some money anyway."
"I saw this cool outfit at Trash and Screw that I really want."
"Uh, Sango? I hate to break it to you but I don't think they have that store here."
"It's a chain, of course they would have it."
"Dude, they don't even have a starbucks here…"
Sango gasped and her cigarette almost fell out of her mouth. "What?"
"Yeah, it's called…wait for it…Pete's cup o' joe."
"Kagome…where are we?" Sango cried.
"I know, Sango. Just…tough it out…I'm sure they have latte's."
"Kagome…they better." Sango scowled at the window. "They better…"
