Disclaimer: Me no Own InuYasha or Cascades' Rhythm of the Rain

Rain

[Thunder]

It's raining here in the Warring States… blood of many samurai have been shed to claim lands and the smell didn't bother me as much as before…what a boring day is it besides the war… I sigh… Why? Why'd ya have to go without a word? Why couldn't you just… My life is worthless without you…

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain

Telling me just what a fool I've been

I wish that if you go and let me cry in vain

And let me be alone again

I curse the to the heaven waiting for that wench to return. I know she won't, but why…why do I wait for her to return here? Here, in front of the damned well that linked our worlds together? The rain won't let me be, I begin to imagine that everything around me, even the annoying runt, are taunting me, blaming me for making her go away…

The only girl I care about has gone away

Looking for a brand-new start

But little does she know that when she left that day

Along with her she took my heart

Well…what can I do now? She left the Shikon Jewel in my possession, still warm and bright just when she had it. Our friends have moved on now, with the exception of the runt, her kit… Why won't the rain stop? She was right…the rain does have this gloomy sort of feeling. I feel like…I was back at the tree again… pinned and alone…

Rain please tell me now does that seem fair

For her to steal my heart away when she don't care

I can't love another when my heart's somewhere far away

Oh how I wish I could be back at the tree, to that fateful day when I first met her… but I can't. I can't even go back to her world and confront her with what I have to say to her, what I must say to her before I completely lose it. I have to say, I can't live on without her knowing it! I want her to know how I feel about her!

The only girl I care about has gone away

Looking for a brand-new start

But little does she know that when she left that day

Along with her she took my heart

Even now I can't stop thinking about her, she's gone, she won't come back…she'll never come back… she's not… "Argh!! Kagome! Come back!! I still have so much I want to tell you!" I shout to the rain. "Kagome!! Kagome!!! Come on!! I'm begging you!!" Please… Her scent…I can't stand it anymore… the Jewel is covered in it, surrounding me as well. The rain isn't washing the smell away. It's only making it worse…!

Rain won't you tell her that I love her so

Please as the sun has set her heart aglow

Rain in her heart and let the love we knew start to grow

I'm down, I'm depressed, I'm…in no condition to be feeling— "It's raining here too…" I jolt in my seat in my tree hearing that voice, that angelic voice! "Geez…why'd I even come here? I'm finished, no more Shikon Jewel Shard hunting for me…heck I don't even have the jewel with me. How on earth did I even get here without it?" She's talking to herself…I think. She really is a strange girl…that I no doubt care very deeply about.

I wish that if you go and let me cry in vain

And let me be alone again

I hear her sigh and she turned around to back. To go BACK?! No!! "Kagome!" I call and she takes no additional steps towards the well, her back still turned to me. "Uh…you're going back? Already?" I ask. She nods and I feel another arrow being shot into my heart. "Can't you stay a little longer?" I ask and she shakes her head, another arrow. How many is that now? Three? Four? Over her shoulder, Kagome apologizes and continues to the well but stops for a moment, looks over to me, and asks me if I had something to say to her besides what I had asked. I nod and say, "I love you."

Oh, listen to the falling rain

Pitter Patter Pitter Patter ohhhh...

"I love you too, InuYasha," she says slowly and turns around completely to face me. "Very much." Her umbrella dropped to the ground as I gather her in my arms and kiss her in the rain.

In the distance, Sango held onto a charm that had the power to let her cross through the well. InuYasha and Kagome had helped her be with Miroku, and it was only fair to return the favor to them. "Not exactly what Kagome had wished for but still good enough," she thinks and goes home. "Miroku would be happy to hear of this."

Okay…good, bad? R/r plz, thnx. This is all done in InuYasha's POV until last paragraph, done in author POV. 25 minutes was much more better than this…
