Chapter 1: What I Want

"There are times that I just want to die," she said as she walked home from school extremely late. "No one cares and they just make fun of me. My parents are never home, I had one friend but they moved away..." the girl sighed and continued pouring her heart to the night sky.

Her black hair was down, and usually looked nice, but now it was all messed up and matted. Her school uniform, normally immaculate, was full of holes and mud stains. Her chocolate brown eyes were full of tears and mud was streaked down her face. Her arms and legs were a mass of bruises and cuts many that were still slowly oozing blood.

As she walked she thought she heard a gasp behind her. She gingerly turned around, so as not to injure herself further. With a cry she dropped her books and ran into someone's arms.

"I never thought I would see you again. Why did you leave me," she cried into his arms.

"I will never leave you again, but who did this to you?" the silver haired guy asked with concern in his amber eyes.

"Just some guys at school, they just started hitting me and calling me names. No one there likes me," she said with a dejected look.

The guy just hugged her harder and as he let her cry into his red shirt, he whispered into her hair, "I will never let you go again Kagome."

She looked into his eyes and reached then laid her head on his chest and sighed contentedly. He let her stand there for a few more minutes before picking her up bridal style and walking her to her house. When he got there he realized that no one was home. Shaking his head he went inside and then up the stairs into her room. He set her down on her bed, kissed her on the forehead and turned to leave.

"Inuyasha?" Kagome said, grabbing his arm. "Stay with me, please?" she said so quietly he barely heard her. He just nodded his head and grabbed her desk chair and sat in it. She fell asleep, still grabbing his arm. Inuyasha sat there for hours before he too fell asleep.
