"It was a day like any other…
I was walking home from school as I usually did. Some cute human girls were walking in front of me, I remember the one girl caught me staring at her and she turned and giggled. My ears listened eagerly at what the girls were saying, they were talking about me.
"Inuyasha Takahashi is checking us out! He's right behind us!" One of them said. I laughed at that.
The other girls all dared glances my way, I grinned at them which made them giggle like little girls. Eventually they had to turn down an opposite street from me. I continued to walk my usual route, but this time I wanted to get home quickly so I took a shortcut through an alleyway. I can still remember what happened next, but some parts of it are just blurs.
It was a tight alleyway, it smelt like garbage there. And that's when they came out from behind a corner of the building. I didn't think much of it; there was a whole pack of them, they were all dressed in dirty clothes and looked around my age. But the looks on their faces when they saw me still gives me nightmares.
"Hey Koga check out this punk." One of them said.
I froze up, I was immobile. I knew they were talking about me. I wanted to run but I couldn't.
The Koga guy, he stood in the middle surrounded by a few followers. My best description I could give you about him was he had long black hair, without a doubt he was a demon. He smelt like a wolf, but it all happened so fast I don't know what else I can describe about him.
"Well, well." He said to me, "Looks like we have found some hanyou bastard."
At that point his followers were already surrounding me. There were too many of them for me to fight off alone.
"How dare you enter our territory?" One of them asked me.
I'm sorry to say that I replied with, "Who says this is your territory you smelly mutts!"
I know that must have brought on the first punch. Even with my inhuman strength I gotta tell you, it hurt. Another one of them punched me again; his fist hit me in the forehead. I tried to fight back but they swarmed me, at some point I was knocked onto the ground and they began to kick me. Then for some reason I couldn't figure out at the time they stopped.
I heard some voices then before I knew it that asshole Koga was standing over me. He had a dumb smile on his face. I also noticed he was holding a bucket of something; he leaned down to me level and smirked.
"I've had enough fun with you, now I hope this will teach you a lesson about manners." He suddenly stood back up then the bucket was tipped over.
The contents smelt nauseating; I still don't know what was in the bucket. I heard a doctor mention it using some fancy chemical name, but I could care less about what it was called. The minute it hit my face I could feel immense heat, it burned. I tried to close my eyes but it was too late. The pain was… Unimaginable.
It makes me angry to know the last thing I had ever seen again was the stupid look on that guys face."
My ear twitched at the sound of the police officer clearing his throat. "Is this your final statement about what happened? You have nothing more to say?"
I could hear my mother's sobs; I knew she was crying for me.
I turned my head in the direction I heard the officer's voice come from, "The last thing I would like to say is that if you don't catch the bastards that did this to me then I will catch them myself." I stated.
I heard the officer sigh, "I will do everything in my power to make them pay." He said before I could hear his footsteps leaving the room.
My mother's crying grew louder. "Why? Why did this have to happen to you? I'm so sorry…" She cried.
I reached my hand out towards the sound of her voice. I missed her shoulder the first attempt but managed to find it. "Don't worry; it's not your fault…" I said trying to sooth her.
"B-but your blind now… And if I had of just picked you up after school you would be in your bed at home safe and happy." She wept.
I sighed. "I don't blame you…"
Of course I was beyond angry, I was terrified and I felt alone. I would never be able to see again, I would never get to look at beautiful girls or watch a sunset. I couldn't watch TV or play video games. I wanted to cry, hell I wanted to scream! So many things were taken away from me! I wanted my life back!
My mother cried endlessly and I continued to try and calm her.
I could sense sleep trying to take me over but I refused to give in, suddenly I heard the door open. I could hear a woman's high heels click on the floor as she walked to my bed.
"I'm sorry ma'am but visiting time is over." She said in a soothing voice.
I heard my mother sniffle. I released my hand from her shoulder.
"Inuyasha I'm going to come back in the morning, they said that since your face will heal quickly you can come home soon, I love you." She said giving me a hug. I hugged her back.
"I love you too." I said before I heard her and the nurse leave the room.
Now that I was alone I didn't need to hold the tears back, I turned over in the bed and pulled the covers over me. I held my eyes shut tightly and put my face into the pillow muffling the light sobs that I couldn't help but create.
My mother hadn't lied about showing up in the morning, I awoke to the sound of her light snores. I guessed she hadn't slept much last night, but then again neither did I.
I heard her begin to stir. Then her voice rang in my ears.
"Good morning." She said leaning in and giving me a hug.
I didn't answer her; I was focused on a strange scent that was lingering in the room. It was different then the nurse's scents, it was a sweet fragrance.
"Mom was anyone here before you?" I asked.
"Actually there was, it's a girl that I hired to teach you how to cope without seeing. Her job is to teach you to read and to-" I cut her off.
"I don't need a babysitter."
I heard her sigh, "It's only for a little while, please give her a chance she is supposed to be one of the best."
I felt angry, I was angry that I would have to learn to read and maneuver my way around without sight. I wasn't sure if I was even capable of walking without seeing. And it frustrated me to no end that my mother was hiring a teacher to babysit me.
"Fine." I said turning over in my bed.
"Good, tomorrow you're coming home and I've already gotten the guest room ready for her to stay in. Please don't be rude to her she's trying to help you."
"She is living with us?" I said surprised.
"Yes she's coming a long way and needs a place to stay, who knows how long she will need to be there to help you. It just makes more sense." She explained.
I growled to myself. "Whatever."
I slept for most of the day or listened to the radio, my mother had left to go get the house ready for my return. I had only been here for a week and she was making it seem like I was here for years.
I still didn't like the fact that some strange girl was going to be staying in my house and babying me. But I didn't really have a choice did I?
I got this idea yesterday before bed, I had many ways of how Inuyasha could lose his sight and how he would react to it but I chose this way. I hope you enjoyed the first chapter, Please review if you would like me to continue with the next chapter.
