A Hanyou's Heart

By: Youkai Koinu

Chapter One: Leaving Home

AN: Before I start this story I would like to thank foxfire02 for the name Keona. Thanks again! Now on with the story!

"Keona! Wake up!" Keona's mom called from the kitchen.

"Ugh… why me?" Keona groaned.

Keona sat up and tried to rub her eyes but was stabbed in the eye with something sharp.

"What the…" Keona said as she stood up and headed over to the mirror. She opened her mouth… and screamed bloody murder. "Ahhhhhhh!" Keona hollered. Her appearance had changed greatly since last night. Her eyes were lavender instead of brown and she had black furry cat ears sprouting out of her wavy shoulder length black hair. That wasn't all either. She had claws and a furry black tail.

Keona's mother burst through the door and frowned at her daughter's appearance.

"Mom… what's happening to me?" Keona asked.

"It's okay, don't panic." Her mom said softly.

"WHAT DO YOU MEAN 'IT'S OKAY DON'T PANIC?!?' THIS IS NOT OKAY!!!" Keona hollered. "IF YOU HAVEN'T NOTICED I HAVE LAVENDER EYES, CAT EARS, A TAIL AND CLAWS!!!" She said waving her claws in front of her mom's face.

"I know, now just calm down. Let's go downstairs and I'll explain all this to you while you eat. Hurry up." Keona's mom said.

"Fine." Keona huffed.

Her mom left the room, Keona hot on her heels. Keona sat down at the kitchen table while her mom set an omelet in front of her and then sat down across from her. Keona didn't even look up because she was too busy staring at her claws.

"Okay, you want to know why you've got claws a tail, cat ears, and why your eyes have changed color right?" Her mom asked.

"Yes." Keona grumbled.

Keona's mom sighed. "Alright. You're a hanyou."

"I'M A WHAT?!?" Keona Hollered.

"A Hanyou." Her mother stated calmly.

"HOW CAN I BE A HANYOU?!? Keona asked.

"Your father was a cat demon and I am a human." Keona's mom explained.

"So I'm half cat demon?" Keona asked.

"Yes." Her mom confessed.

"But why do I have this stuff now, I mean wouldn't I have looked like this since I was born?" Questioned Keona.

"Yes, but Iput spell on you so that you would look like a human. But now, it's time."

"Time for what?" Keona asked.

"Time for you to go back." Keona's mom stated.

"Back? Back where?" Keona asked.

"Back to our world, our time, the feudal era."

"WHAT? WHY?" Keona questioned.

"Because your destiny is to live in that time, not this one." Her mom answered.

"What do I have to do back there?" Keona whined.

"That I'm not certain of, but you are needed in the past. You must do your duty there and you won't be able to return to this time until you have. You must leave immediately otherwise the present may be affected." Her mother spoke softly.

"How… how do I get there?" Keona asked.

"Do you remember that well that you used to play in?"

"Yes." Keona said remembering the old well in the well house.

"You must jump in it and it will serve as the portal between this time and Feudal Japan." Keona's mother said.

"Right." Keona said and ran upstairs to pack. Then she sped off towards the old well with incredible speed after allshe was half cat demon.

When she reached it she stopped to stare at it for a moment. "Well here goes." Keona mused aloud and jumped into the well. Suddenly she was surrounded by a blue light and then was placed on solid ground. 'What the heck?' Keona thought. 'I'm still in the same place.' She climbed out and realized that she wasn't in the same place at all. She was in a lush forest. Keona loved the forest. "Mm…" Keona mumbled. "Crisp forest air. This is something you can't get at home." With that said she began wandering the forest in search for some sort of village.

30 minutes later

"Finally!" Keona exclaimed. "A village."

She wandered over to one of the huts and peeked inside to find an old lady and what looked like another half demon.

"Excuse me." Keona said. "But could one of you tell me where I am?"

"Who the heck are you?" The hanyou asked.

"Inuyasha, quit being rude." The old lady scolded.

"Feh." Inuyasha replied.

"This is my village. I am Kaedae and this is Inuyasha." The old lady said.

"Oh, well nice to meet you." Keona replied.

"I haven't seen you around here before. Are you a demon?" Kaedae asked.

"I've never been here before, and no I'm a hanyou." Keona answered.

As soon as she mentioned she was a hanyou Inuyasha's head snapped around to stare at her.

"So you are a half demon huh? Part cat demon it seems." Kaedae stated.

"Yes. I'm from another time and I had to come here through a well because I was needed here." Keona stated simply.

"Another time huh?What are you supposed to do here?" Kaedae asked.

"I'm not sure." Keona answered.

"Oh, well have ye found somewhere to rest yet?" Kaedae asked.

"No." Keona said.

"Well ye are welcome to stay here if need be." Kaedae offered.

"Really?!?" Keona asked.


"Thank you so much!" Keona exclaimed.
