Family Portrait

Prologue


A/N This is going to be pretty sad cause that just happens to be how I feel.
Anyways this story was inspired by the song Family Potrait by Pink. Major
OOC and it's AU,

Summary:What if Kagome's father didn't die but instead left her and her family.
Knowing that what would change about her? Would she still be the same
innocent happy girl she is when she becomes a teen or will her father leaving her
make her grow up faster without knowing love and only sadness. Bad summary
I know just read and you'll might be able to relate to it,it might even make you
cry or really sad.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

It started when I was six years old. Even then I understood a lot, or I understood
what meant something to me. Ten years later and my whole life is diffrent then
I know it should have been. Everyone thinks i'm older then I really am, but they
only think that because it's true. Ten years ago I was a happy little girl, I had
the whole world to explore and everything was made of butterfly's and beautiful
flowers. Ten years ago that world was shattered forever. I remember when it
began as clearly as I can see the water drops of rain running down my window.


Ten years ago

My eyes snapped open as the breaking of glass reached her eyes. I
figured it was just the cat and decided it was nothing. Turning on my side I
closed my eyes, trying to fall back asleep. My eyes opened again as I heard
my mother screaming at someone in anger. I tossed the blankets off of me
and walked over and opened her door. I walked to the stairs and looked down
What greeted my eyes as I got there was my father standing there angrily, fully
clothed. Right in front of him was my mother in her pajamas, tears falling down
her face, contorted in anger and pain. I began to walk down the stairs
wondering what was wrong when my father started yelling too. This shocked
me and I backed up hiding behind the wall closest to the stairs. I sat down
and began to listen to the screaming of my parents.

"Where were you!!" my mother's pained voice screamed

"I was working" my father's anger filled voice said

" At one in the morning, we both know your job doesn't require you to work
that long" my mother's quiet but deadly voice echoed up to me.

"I lost track of time, Naomi, believe me I wouldn't do anything to hurt you!"

My mother snorted and looked down a tear falling down her face to make
contact with the hallway floor. She folded her arms and headed away from my
sight. I stood up and walked back to my room closing the door silently behind
me. Just then my baby brother started crying and I heard feet walking up the
stairs, heading off towards my brother's room I heard them open the door
and walk in. Soon after my brother's crying stopped and I went back to my
bed and pulled the covers over my head falling into a light sleep. Wishing
that something like that would only happen once, and they had worked through
they're problems.

"Family Portrait"

Uh, uh, some deep shit, uh, uh

Momma please stop cryin, I can't stand the sound
Your pain is painful and its tearin' me down
I hear glasses breakin as I sit up in my bed
I told dad you didn't mean those nasty things you
said

You fight about money, bout me and my brother
And this I come home to, this is my shelter
It ain't easy growin up in World War III
Never knowin what love could be, you'll see
I don't want love to destroy me like it has done
my family

Can we work it out? Can we be a family?
I promise I'll be better, Mommy I'll do anything
Can we work it out? Can we be a family?
I promise I'll be better, Daddy please don't
leave

Daddy please stop yellin, I can't stand the sound

Make mama stop cryin, cuz I need you around
My mama she loves you, no matter what she says
its true
I know that she hurts you, but remember I love
you, too

I ran away today, ran from the noise, ran away
Don't wanna go back to that place, but don't have
no choice, no way
It ain't easy growin up in World War III
Never knowin what love could be, well I've seen
I don't want love to destroy me like it did my
family

Can we work it out? Can we be a family?
I promise I'll be better, Mommy I'll do anything
Can we work it out? Can we be a family?
I promise I'll be better, Daddy please don't
leave

In our family portrait, we look pretty happy
Let's play pretend, let's act like it comes
naturally
I don't wanna have to split the holidays
I don't want two addresses
I don't want a step-brother anyways
And I don't want my mom to have to change her
last name

In our family portrait we look pretty happy
We look pretty normal, let's go back to that
In our family portrait we look pretty happy
Let's play pretend, act like it goes naturally

In our family portrait we look pretty happy
(Can we work it out? Can we be a family?)
We look pretty normal, let's go back to that
(I promise I'll be better, Mommy I'll do
anything)
In our family portrait we look pretty happy
(Can we work it out? Can we be a family?)
Let's play pretend act and like it comes so
naturally
(I promise I'll be better, Daddy please don't
leave)
In our family portrait we look pretty happy
(Can we work it out? Can we be a family?)
We look pretty normal, let's go back to that
(I promise I'll be better, Daddy please don't
leave)

Daddy don't leave
Daddy don't leave
Daddy don't leave
Turn around please
Remember that the night you left you took my
shining star?
Daddy don't leave
Daddy don't leave
Daddy don't leave
Don't leave us here alone

Mom will be nicer
I'll be so much better, I'll tell my brother
Oh, I won't spill the milk at dinner
I'll be so much better, I'll do everything right
I'll be your little girl forever
I'll go to sleep at night


AN--This song basically goes with the whole fic, so i'm just going to post it here
so you know that this goes with the whole story. I'm thinking though that
there's going to be slight romance in the later chapters.
