Due to new policy of no song lyrics I have deleted them from this fic. To read the versionds with lyrics please visit my other accounts. The first chapter's song is "Anything" by Sixpence None the Richer (notice the story's title)
She took her time getting off the bus, gripping the railing as though it were her life line. She nodded to the people behind her, blaming her slowness on the nine pounds of extra weight she carried in her womb, but the truth was she was scared. Getting off the bus meant she would have no place to sleep. The bus had been her home for the passed 36 hours. How did they expect her to leave so easily? In the next three minutes she would be living on the street, homeless and nine months pregnant.
"Miss, I have somewhere to be can you hurry it along?" An older woman asked.
The girl blinked back tears, "I…I'm trying. I'm really t-trying" Her grip on the railing tightened, oh God, help me!
"Oh come on! Hurry up!" A man yelled from the back
She took the last few steps, savoring the warmth of the bus, before stepping out into the cold.
She watched the bus drive away, with a shaky sign she picked up her bag and slung it over her shoulder. Biting her lower lip after several minutes trying to decide what to do she could deny it no longer, she had to pee really badly. There was a library across the street. Libraries have bathrooms! She thought. She crossed the street and nearly ran inside, after finishing, she looked at herself in the mirror.
Her long black hair was matted and greasy from lack of bathing, the circles under her eyes made her face look pale and sickly. The dress she wore was not meant for a pregnant woman, coming up high on her legs. Kagome, you look like a dirty tramp that forgot to take the pill… she glared at the person in the mirror. When had her life gone so wrong? Duh the night you let Josh Barennett in your pants, then Mommy kicked you out because if Daddy had found out he would have killed you. She wiped her eyes, the tears just kept coming. Kagome slumped to the floor, her back against the restroom door, "I can't do this…" she whimpered, hanging her head low, her hair falling in her face. She bit down on her lip so hard it bled; I will not cry I will not cry.
Kagome stood up slowly. She
splashed cold water on her face in attempt to clean away the filth
she felt on her. Failing miserably, she gathered up her bag and left
There was a sign on the door of the library with the times.
Monday – Thursday 9 AM to 9 PM
Friday – Saturday 12 PM to 5 PM
The clock on the wall said it was 2:57 PM, thank God it was Tuesday, and she had six hours to figure out what she was going to do.
She walked around the library trying to look as though she belonged there. Skimming through the children's books then moving to the Adult books, after finding nothing of interest, she watched some of the younger teens playing games on the computers the library had.
"Excuse me, Miss," A voice said behind her.
She turned around to come face to face with most beautiful man she had ever seen. He had long black hair that hung so perfectly against his shoulders; his eyes were the deepest shade of violet she had ever seen. She gasped, realizing she had been staring. "Y-Yes?"
He smiled, "You look like you could use a cup of hot chocolate."
What the hell was this? A random gorgeous man offering her hot chocolate? What the hell did he want to have a drink with her for? "Um…I'm kinda waiting for someone," she said quickly, she hadn't meant to snap at him. Her stomach tightened up, she was hungry and anything would be nice right now. But I can't just go with some stranger!
"I'm sorry. I wasn't trying to hit on you, I saw you get off the bus and you look hungry. I just wanted to help out that's all."
Oh great! Now he's apologizing. She looked down at the floor, "No please don't be sorry. I'm the one who should be sorry, I just…..I'm not very good when it comes to men you can see where the last one got me," she laughed nervously.
He nodded, "I see, well I'd still like a cup of hot chocolate, would you like to come with me?"
Kagome clinched her fists doing everything within her power not to hug him, "Yes, that sounds wonderful. I'd love to."
He led her to his car, once they were both inside, he said, "My name's Inuyasha. What's yours?"
She smiled. Inuyasha…what a cute name. "Kagome."
"It's nice to meet you, Kagome." With that, he started the car and drove out of the library's parking lot.
People in this town sure are friendly, she thought. She leaned her head back against the seat, and cute…really really cute. Kagome felt the soft kick of her child, maybe everything would be fine, and maybe she could start a new life here. She could forget all about her life in Florida and start anew.
She pushed all of that aside for now and drifted into a light sleep.
