Ok, this fic may be somewhat sad and depressing, Gomen. But there's also going to be alot of compassion and love.
Just be patient.

The Loveless Child



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Kagome's parents had been fighting for quite some time, and tonight-well, let's just say they wouldn't be
fighting anymore.


She quietly crept down the stairs, for no reason in particular. Her paren't yelling was loud enough to cover up any noises she would have made.


She sat on the steps and listened closely to what they were arguing about this time.


*Crash!* A beer bottle flew up against the wall.


"Who is she?!"


"She who?"



"You know exactly who I am talking about! Don't play stupid with me!"



"SHE WHO!?" her dad yelled. "I should be asking you who is HE!"



"tHERE IS NO HE OTHER THAN YOU, OR WHAT USED TO BE YOU! I HAVE TO CARE FOR OUR CHILD
SO I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR A LIFE, UNLIKE YOU WHO DATES EVERY WHORE IN TOWN!" her mother yelled.


Kagome sat there listening on the steps crying. Her tears soon engulfed her vision, and she
tried to be quiet, soothing her sobs.


"I'm leaving!" her father spat angrily. He went to walk into the room, followed by her mother,
but he wouldn't let her in. Instead, he slammed her bone-spurred foot in the door.


"You son of a-!" she yelled, tossing another bottle at the door.
She could hear laughter from inside the room.


Kagome's attention was then turned to her brother.


"Oneechan? What's going on?" he asked, wiping the sleep from his eyes.


Kagome tried to hide her tears and sandess. "It's nothing Souta, go back to bed." she said, picking the boy up and toting him back to his room.
She tucked the covers around him tightly.


"Goodnight Souta."


"Good night Kagome." he smiled, and drifted off into a dream world filled with joy, bliss, and happiness.


Kagome quietly closed the door and walked back to her perch on the steps.


She looked from where she was sitting into the living room. There stood her father with bags in hand.


"I'll be back for Souta in the morning." he said angrily.


Kagome's lip started to tremble. They were being split apart! God knows when she'd see her brother again!


Her mother spoke up, Kagome wished it offered some hope for them to stay together, "And you'll take Kagome too!"


"No I won't! If she's anything like you, I don't even want her as my daughter!"


Kagome's eyes flowed with tears. Her father hated her? What did she do? What happened to make him hate her so much?


"I -" she heard her mom start to say. 'Please mom, please let it be something good!' kagome cried to herself.
"I don't want the brat either!"


Kagome's heart snapped into. She couldn't take it anymore. She'd much rather have died at birth than heard this.


"Then you should have had the abortion like I told you to when we found out!"


Kagome couldn't take anymore. She ran to her room, grabbing an old backpack, a few clothes and
hygene products, and went for her money.


"Great...this should get me a train ticket somehwere." she thought as she counted it out.


Now all there was to do was wait for her mom to go to sleep.


She sat and thought during that short time. She wanted to take Souta with her, but she didn't know where she'd be going, and she knew it would be dangerous.
She didn't want to risk her brother getting hurt, or worse...and atleast he was loved by them...she wasn't.


She cried softly, and reached for a tissue on her nightstand. Why didn't they love her?


Her thoughts were then inturrupted by her mother's door slamming closed. Pefect! All
there is now is to get the food and run!


She quickly tiptoed down stairs and grabbed a few things, then pulled her housekey out of her pocket.
"I'll keep this for future purposes..." she sighed. She then quickly slipped out the door, but not unseen.


WHen the door was closed, Souta stood where she had, crying. "Kagome.....why?"
