Kagome bolts from the well house, tears streaming down her face as she runs towards her room, towards her escape. Why does this keep happening! Her mind reels as she goes over the memories of what she just witnessed. It'll never change! Ill never change! I don't know why I even bother! I'm done! She stopped as the thought passed through her mind…. Was she really? She remembered back to the scene from the forest.
She had seen the soul collectors that night, but she chose to ignore them, that is until Inuyasha went missing. She knew she was foolish to go searching the woods for him but she was just so frightened that he might get trapped under another one of Kikyo's spells…. He couldn't go to hell with her, not yet. She decided she would just go towards the well, after all, who was she to stop Kikyo if she wanted to drag Inuyasha to her inferno that night? He wanted to go anyways right? So might as well go home and leave them be…. She wasn't wanted anyways, all she did was get in the way. That's all she ever did. It was because of her that Inuyasha always got hurt during battle trying to protect her, she was such a useless human. That's why he loved Kikyo. She was strong, beautiful and actually had a hold on her powers! No wonder he loved her, and she only got in the way of that too! They belonged together! Not her, she had no one. Or at least that was what she had told herself when she left Kaedes hut that night. She couldn't stand the thought of Inuyasha in her harms! So when she stumbled upon them on the way to the well she froze. She watched as his lips met hers under the pale glow of the moon and her heart shattered, completely, for the last time. How could he hold that, that….. Shell! She tried so hard to look away but her eyes were fixed on the way he held her close and stroked her hair as she whispered into his soft, sweet ears "I love…."
And that's when she ran, as hard and as fast as her legs would take her. As her head spun with the lingering details of the memory she knew her mind was made. Yes she thought, I'm done! There's no place for me in this world or the past! I'm tired of being a replacement! I'm tired of being lonely! As she bolted through the empty house she grabbed the first knife she found on her way through the kitchen and up the stairs. As she threw herself on the bed she let out a final heart tangled gasp as she brought the blade down onto her arm. The pain was overwhelming! All that she ever held onto, all the rejection she had swallowed over the years, and all her sadness from never having a place to fit poured from her core from that solitary wound that snaked down her arm along her vain. She dropped the knife and grabbed her wrist as she watched her "redemption" trickle to her fingertips and fall to the floor. Drip… so this is what salvation feels like. Drip…. like I'm sinking into the darkness, away from the harsh, burning light Drip…. finally my mind… is… sile~ Drip… drip… drip…. As Kagome's body began to relax and her limbs grew heavier, she knew that she would soon be free of her tormented sub conscious as she began to slip into a dark abyss somewhere between a dream and death….
