Disclaimer: I do not own Gravitation or Inuyasha. I do own any characters that I made up.
Me: Yep. I'm starting a new fic. And just as a side-note, I don't know Kagome's moms' name, so I made one up for her. And everyone looks a little different in this fic, except the Gravi cast. The only people from Inuyasha are Kagome, Shippo, Souta, and Kagome's mom, Suzuran. Character bios will be at the end of the chapter. And the title of this fic is from a song on Ayashi no Ceres, and I thought it suited this fic for some reason. And this is my first Gravi fic so please be nice to me. And also it might take me a while to update, as I have around five fics going right now. *Sweatdrop* Oh yeah, sorry if the characters seem a little OOC. Ja ne and please review! *Shiroi Hikari*

Chapter One: America to Japan
A nineteen-year old Kagome Higurashi sighed as she re-read the letter that her mother had handed to her when she came back from her part-time job at the music store downtown. So, Grandfather has finally died. Now I have no one to tell me anymore about the feudal era, even though I know practically everything that a miko could know about, having trained with Kaede-senpai for two years. But it says here that he left me a huge amount of money and a few other items. But...that means that we have to move back to Japan. Kagome put the letter down after reading it for a final time and walked over to her mother, who was cutting up some carrots for the stew that she was making.
"Kaa-san, have you read this letter?" Kagome asked as she grabbed a chair and sat down at their small kitchen table. Kagome's mother, Suzuran, had lost her job a few months ago and the family wasn't doing so well on money. The other day a bank notice had arrived in the mail saying they would take away the Higurashi house if the Higurashi's didn't come up with $10,000 before next Tuesday. Kagome had a part time job working at the music store, but that didn't bring in much money. Souta and Shippo, who were now thirteen, had just finished elementary school and were going to middle school next. Shippo had come home with Kagome through the well in Japan four years ago, disguised as a human when not around his family. Suzuran had officially adopted Shippo at the adoption agency, though Kagome didn't know how she did it. But Kagome was still Shippo's mother. Kagome and her friends in the feudal era, Inuyasha, Miroku, and Sango to name a few, had defeated Naraku with the help of Kagura, Kanna, and Kouga. Kagome had told Inuyasha her feelings, but he had told her that he still loved Kikyo, and decided to go to hell with her. Miroku and Sango had gotten married, and when Kagome had left Sango was pregnant with her second child. Rin was revived and was now living with Sesshoumaru. Kouga had reestablished his pack and Ayame was now his mate. Kaede was still the village priestess, though she was training a younger miko to take over when she left this world. Kagome sighed happily as all of the fun memories came flying back to her. But then her eyes saddened when she remembered what Inuyasha had told her and what she had to do. Kagome had sealed up the well after she and Shippo had left. And the Higurashi family soon after moved to America. Though Kagome's grandfather decided to stay in Japan and take care of the Higurashi shrine. Kagome's cousins and aunt also lived there, but Kagome rarely saw them. Suddenly she was brought back from her reverie when her mother snapped her fingers in front of her face.
"Kagome? Are you listening?"
"Sorry Kaa-san. I was thinking about the past." Kagome said quietly and her mother nodded.
"I read that letter before I gave it to you, and I think we should move back to Japan. Souta and Shippo just finished elementary school, so starting middle school in Japan. And I talked to some old friends' earlier saying that we could stay with them until I find a job and apartment. And your cousin also lives in Tokyo, doesn't he?" Suzuran asked her daughter as she put the stew on the stove. Kagome's cousin and aunt weren't related to Suzuran, they were from her father's side. Suzuran didn't really get along that well with her cousin's mom, so that's why Kagome didn't see her cousins much. She didn't really care about her female cousin, but she liked her male cousin. He was really nice and funny. I hope he hasn't changed. Kagome thought with a small smile tugging at her lips.
"Hai kaa-san. Shu-chan lives in Tokyo. He just graduated a year ago from high school. Now I hear he's sorta famous. I don't know. I haven't heard any news from Japan lately. But are you sure we can move there?" Kagome asked. Suzuran smiled and turned to her daughter.
"Yes. Besides we are going to lose this house anyways, so why not start over in Japan again. And before you say it, I know it will be hard for to me to find a job and apartment. But like I said. My old friends Mika and Tohma Seguchi invited us to stay at their house until we find a place to live. And Tohma-kun says that you can help him at his business place. You might like it. And I believe he also said that you're cousin works there as well..." Suzuran trailed off. Kagome's face brightened.
"So mom, when are we leaving?" Kagome asked excitedly.
"I've booked a plane to Japan tomorrow. I've called the bank and told them that we are moving, so selling the house is no problem. Souta and Shippo's middle school that they were going to go to has been notified of the move, and I have already signed them up over the Internet to a middle school in Tokyo. Tohma and Mika have rooms sat up for us, as well as your job. All you have to do now is pack. I will tell Shippo and Souta when they get home from the movies." Suzuran said and smiled when Kagome ran out of the room with a huge smile on her face. This was the happiest she'd seen her since her miko training had been complete. Kagome had gotten depressed when she had to seal the well up, and had rarely smiled since. Perhaps moving to Japan will be better for her. She thought and squeaked when the oven timer went off behind her, signaling the stew was done.
Tohma Seguchi, president of Ng-Records (I think) walked into the room that the 'Bad Luck' band was hanging out in. Shuichi Shindou and Hiroshi Nakano were looking over some new songs that Shuichi had written, while Fujisaki Suguru was making comments here and there on Shuichi's songs. K, the bands' manager, and Sakano, another manager, were talking about some upcoming TV shows that 'Bad Luck' could do. Tohma cleared his throat and everyone looked at him.
"A new person will be joining Ng-Records and I want you to make her feel welcome. She is the daughter of a dear friend of mine, and she is moving to Japan along with her family." He said and Shuichi, Hiro, and Suguru looked at him weirdly.
"And you're telling us this because...?" Shuichi asked. Tohma stared at him with a smile.
"Because she is your cousin Shindou-san."
