I disclaim InuYasha and the Twilight Saga.
There aren't any Kagome/Seth pairings.
In here, Seth is the same age as Kagome in here.
1. Bella Swan
'You can do so much better,' they said.
'You're not a good enough shot to kill him,' they said.
'You die three times before you are brave,' they said.
She couldn't do much better, she was a good enough shot to kill him, and she did die three times before she was finally brave... brave enough to face the world for what it truly is. She had finally reached beyond her years in experience and she wasn't going to let a simple seal that was on the well keep her back from adventure... maybe.
She had long since given up trying to go back; it was no use. The boneater's well wouldn't allow her back into the Feudal Era, and it hadn't allowed her back for nearly half a year. The now-sixteen-year-old Kagome had moved to a different continent, North America, and had been settled on the far west coast in a small rainy place called Forks in the state of Washington.
Of course, since she was still too young to set out on her own, her mother had set up an arrangement for her to be emanicapted early. (The only reason she had allowed her daughter to leave in the first place was because she knew that their home held too many memories for her, ones that would stike a chord if they were to be brought up so lightly when she cares so much about the feudal era.) Kun-Loon didn't want her daughter to be unhappy, but she didn't quite want to let her go either; so she had made Kagome promise that she would come back to Tokyo every break she had from school; meaning she has to spend at least half the summer with her family; not that she minded, she was already starting to miss them so much just after being in the green rainy place for a month.
So, Kagome was allowed to live a normal life again. She's enrolled in the small highschool with a small population, and she even hangs around people from her school every so often. But she really wouldn't call them her friends, they were more like acquaintances.
She sat in the back of her Biology class with Mr. Banner going on and about and all around with the lesson that they were to be learning. She already had learned about this in her old school, and she didn't bother paying attention now as she stared out the window.
Just as she was about to start thinking of her past, and not for the first time wishing for something to keep her interested and grounded in life, the door was opened timidly and in stepped a girl looking to be about her age, her height. She had mahogany brown hair, chocolate brown eyes, and a light blush on her face as she noticed that she was being stared at by the entirety of the class.
"Oh, um..." the girl fumbled to find her schedule through the books that she was holding in her arms as Mr. Banner turned to her questioningly. "Is this... Biology... with, Mr. Banner?"
"Ah, yes..." Mr. Banner muttered before smiling warmly at the new girl that had arrived late to our class. "You must be the new new student, Isabella Swan."
"It's Bella," Kagome easily heard the girl correct him and she smiled slightly in her direction before moving her gaze back to the window.
"Of course," the bioloy teacher replied. He signed off on a paper that Bella had handed him, her schedule, then marked her name on his roster before pointing Bella toward the back of the room. "The only empty seat we have is next to Edward Cullen, come to see me after class and I'll set up a date for you to catch up..."
Bella began walking toward the back of the class, and Kagome had lifted her head again to see her sit at the lab table across the aisle from hers besides the guy that had the odd, but attractive bronze hair, eyeing Bella and Edward with curious sapphire blue eyes.
Though to anyone else it may have seemed like honest curiosity; it was different. When Bella had walked by, Kagome felt a heavy feeling come over her from Edward's direction and she couldn't help but wonder what that was.
'It's been almost two years since I've felt something like this,' she thought curiously. 'There can't be a demon around, could there?'
The hour stayed like that, much to Kagome's suprise, and her eyes stayed glued on the two from the corners as she felt the heavy feeling-the aura-she finally realized, continued to get heavier, so much heavier that Kagome almost felt that she couldn't breathe.
But, thankfully the class had ended soon enough and Kagome watched bemusedly as Edward hightailed it out of the room. She turned to see Bella looking confused, and a little upset by his rudeness and she decided to eleviate the situation. She walked over to the girl, her books held securely with her right arm as she fell into step beside the girl as they walked out.
"Hi," Kagome said in her friendliest voice, a small smile on her face as Bella turned toward her astoundedly. "I'm Kagome Higurashi, you must be new here..."
Bella nodded, her blush from before slowly fading from existence. "I'm Bella... Bella Swan."
Kagome offered her hand and Bella unwittingly let go of her books with the one hand that had secured them in her hold as she reached for the girl's friendly gesture, allowing her books to fall to the floor in a loud series of thuds.
Kagome tried not to giggle at the girl's clumsiness and she bent down with her to pick up her books while keeping her own steady. "Nice to meet you... So, where's your last hour?"
Bella smiled sheepishly before letting it fade, "P.E."
"Oooh," Kagome fell into her outgoing nature easily with the girl as if she had known her for years as they walked out of the classroom and down the hallway towards Bella's next class. "I hear Coach is usually easier on his last hour kids though, so that's a plus... And, I believe Mike Newton has that hour, which... there he is now..." Kagome grinned in a way that showed that she was uncertain.
He stood at the end of the hallway near the cafeteria with an anxious expression on his face before Kagome and Bella walked up side by side, and a cool grin appeared on his features. "Oh hey, Kagome, Bella."
"Hey," Kagome said as Bella gave an awkward wave. "I'm sure you want to take Bella to P.E. so I'll leave you two to it; see you guys tomorrow!" She felt a little bad for leaving Bella with Mike, but she didn't want to stay here any longer than she was needed to. So forgetting about her guiltiness, she turned and walked in the direction of the exit, not thinking of anything but the new shift in auras that she had felt during 5th hour.
Bella seemed to be confused at Kagome's leaving and she asked as much, too; "You're leaving so soon?"
Kagome turned back to her with a smile. "6th hour is my free period, and for 7th hour my French teacher isn't here today; what's the point in going to class if I'm not learning anything new?"
Bella and Mike seemed to understand her as the latter shrugged and Bella called out a warm, "See you tomorrow!"
All through the night, and all of the next day, Kagome still had the thought of the heavy feeling that she got from the day before. And even more to add on to her suspicions, Edward wasn't at school that day. Not that she usually paid attention to his presence at school anyways. And it could very easily mean that his family was off on another camping trip; but she quickly tossed that thought aside whenever she saw the rest of his family during lunch sitting at their usual secluded round table sat in the shadows of the cafeteria.
So today, instead of sitting by herself like she normally would, she decided to go sit with her new friend, Bella at Angelas table, if only to see what had happneed between Bella and Edward. And really, she isn't the snooping type, but she wants to know what was up witht that aura that she was feeling the other day...
It wasn't like it was a horrible one, like the demons and half-demons that she had felt before, but it wasn't exactly a safe and cuddly one either. The aura that she felt actually kind of worried her, which was why she decided to get acquainted with Bella the day before. She wasn't going to let the girl out of her sights, no matter how useless she may be now without a hanyou, taijaiya, monk, or a demon fox child to back her up; she still knew how to purify things with her arrows... not that they would allow them in a school, but her hands could still emit her power; It should be useful enough, right?
She hoped so.
She walked up with nothing but a granola bar and a bottle of water earning shocked glances from the students that were around them, and a certain narrowed glare from a girl that she had remembered to be Lauren as she stood before them with a warm smile. "Hey guys, mind if I sit here?" her accent didn't surprise anyone there, she vaguely realized. They must have gotten used to it the last time I spoke to them, she thought.
"Of course," Angela smiled back, scooting over and allowing for Kagome to sit in between her and Eric Yorkie while on the other side of her Ben sat staring between Kagome and Angela before shooting a grateful look Kagome's way.
Bella sat directly across from Kagome and Kagome let her bright sapphire eyes scan the room, trying to feel out for that aura again, but not sensing it as she rested her eyes upon Bella, smiling gently at her. "So, how's your second day of school been, Bella?"
Maybe it was nothing, Kagome thought as Bella answered, feeling disappointment cloud her thoughts. But she actually felt good to finally allow a new friend into her life, though Bella may not think of her that way yet.
