I Wish It Was Different
Ch. 1 "The Hurt"


The sun was covered up by the dark, stormy rain clouds. Kagome shivered slightly when a bit of wind blew on her
exposed legs.

*I should of wore pants.* She thought.

Kagome was searching for Inu Yasha due to the fact he sulked because everyone who didn't have demon blood in them
wanted to rest a bit in Kaede's village.

*All he thinks about are those stupid Shikon shards!* Kagome continued to think. *And.... Kikyo.*

At the thought of the living-dead miko, Kagome was once again forced to relive that painful memory of Inu Yasha
holding Kikyo under the tree he was pinned on.

*How romantic.* Kagome thought bitterly. *But, I may not have his heart, but at least I share some portion of his life.*

Kagome saw a familiar red kimono standing near Goshinboku. Kagome smiled as Inu Yasha's ears twitched, indicating
that he knew she was there.

"What is it, wench?"

Kagome sighed. *I wish he'd use my real name.* "I wanted to see how you were doing."

"Just great." Kagome undoubtedly heard the extreme sarcasm dripping from his voice.

"But you're not so great."

"Just leave it at that, bitch!"

"I just wanted to know how you were doing! And then you start biting my freak'n head off!" Kagome's voice pitch started
to rise.

"WELL IT'S NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS! EVEN IF IT WAS, I STILL WOULDN'T TELL YOU!"

Kagome was about to say something when she sensed something. It was a certain thought Kagome couldn't shake off.

"Kikyo was here, wasn't she?"

Inu Yasha just looked at her hard. Kagome continued, "She left a few seconds before I arrived, didn't she?" Kagome's
voice was but a whisper, however, Inu Yasha's sensitive ears picked it up.

Inu Yasha still didn't say anything. "What happened between you and her?"

This was when Inu Yasha glared at her with the most cold eyes Kagome had ever seen. She winced at the sight of them,
and if he decided to attack her, she wouldn't be able to get her vocal cords to work in time to say "Osuwari."

"It's none of your damn business." Inu Yasha exclaimed calmly. A little too calmly.

Kagome couldn't say anything. Her voice died on her. What happened between them? Is Inu Yasha relived Kikyo left
only seconds before Kagome arrived? Or was he.... annoyed of her?

"I just...." Kagome continued. "I just wanted to know that's all."

What Kagome meant, and failed to mention, was that she meant she just wanted to know if Inu Yasha was all right. She
would have left. She would have continued the Shard hunt with Inu Yasha and the others, had Inu Yasha not thought Kagome
wanted to know what happened between him and Kikyo.

"I SAID IT'S NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS, WENCH! IT NEVER WAS AND IT NEVER WILL BE!"

"I JUST MEANT--"

"WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN US IS STRICTLY FOR ME AND KIKYO TO KNOW! I DON'T NEED YOU, SOME STUPID CHILD, ASKING ME ABOUT MY
LOVE LIFE! YOUR JUST SOME STUPID REINCARNATION WHOM MAKES EVERYONE MISERABLE! AND I WISH YOU HAD THE DECENCY TO REALIZE YOU
DON'T HAVE A PURPOSE HERE, AND YOU LEAVE US ALONE!"

Kagome felt numb all over. His words playing over and over in her head, engraving them unwillingly into her brain. She
knew she would remember them for the rest of her life. And for the first time, Kagome couldn't cry. She was like an old,
dried up well that stopped giving water.

All Kagome could do was numbly nod her head, not looking at Inu Yasha, and headed back for the village.
When Kagome got to her destination, she grabbed her yellow back pack, figuring that saying good-bye to everyone would be
too painful, and grabbed her bows and arrows. She took the Shikon shards off her neck, and placed it in Kaede's futon.
Kagome headed to the bone well as fast as she could.

Kagome threw her back pack over the well, and jumped through, not knowing Inu Yasha was watching her the whole time,
disguised within the trees. Inu Yasha ran to the well, wondering why he was going to try to stop Kagome.
Kagome worked as fast as she could. As soon as she got to her time, she climbed out of the well, threw her pack down,
and prepared to shoot and arrow at the well.
Inu Yasha was almost there. All he had to do was make a leap into the well, get to Kagome's time, and drag her back
kicking and screaming.
Kagome shot the arrow into the well. As soon as she did, a bright pink light erupted and surrounded the well.
Inu Yasha was slammed on the ground as pink light erupted and surrounded the well. "What the hell?!" Inu Yasha got
back on his feet, feeling like he had just been sat. He looked at the magic the shot up from the well to the Heavens.
He knew what it was, and he looked on in disbelief. She was gone.

Kagome sealed the well.

Forever.
