Alrighty Fan Fiction folks! I'm back and ready to write. I'm really sorry for all the bad stories, but I couldn't come up with anything! But new story which in my mind sounded good. Okay, I know you guys are tired of well reading this crap so now on with the story! Woohoo!

Kagome lied on her bed, waiting for her next beating.

"Kagome! Get your butt down here this instant!" a mans voice yelled from downstairs.

She sighed, got out of her bed, and walked down the stairs. "Y-yes Naraku?" she said once she was in front of her father Naraku.

"What did you do all day?" he asked.

"I went to school, came home, and fell asleep."

He smacked her across the face, making her fall to the ground. "Didn't I tell you to clean the house once you get here?" he practically yelled, kicking her.

"Y-yes," she managed to sob out, while she curled up into a ball.

"So why didn't you?!" he screeched, picking her up by her neck.

"I-I'm sorry!" she gasped.

"You're sorry? You should've done it! Ugh!" he said squeezing her neck then dropping her. "Go to sleep, then tomorrow, when I get back from work, this house better be clean! Go!"

She scrambled up to her feet then ran as quickly as she could up the stairs. Once she got to her room, she locked her door then cried. She crawled to her dresser and took out a picture of a woman, in her mid-thirties.

"I wish you were still here mom," she thought as she hugged the picture close to herself, then fell asleep.

Next morning…

Kagome woke up at 5:30, on the ground. She got up, put her picture in the dresser, and went to the bathroom. She stepped into the shower, and let the water go over all her bruises and scars. Once she got out of the shower she looked at all her scars and bruises.

"Okay," she said to herself. "Which ones are going to be the hardest to hide?"

She looked at herself in the mirror; she had bruises all over her body: a big mark on her stomach; some old cuts and bruises on her arms; two bruises on her left leg; three bruises on her right; a hand mark bruise around her neck; and a red mark on her left cheek.

"The one on my cheek, I can put make-up over it, my neck too, and I can put bracelets over my arms."

She dried herself, wrapped a towel around her, and walked to her room. She picked out skinny jeans, a white shirt, a black oversized jacket, and black and white checkered Converse shoes. She rolled her sleeves up to her elbow, put on three big bracelets on each of her arms, and rolled her sleeves over them. She put her hair in a ponytail, with some hairs out so they fell around her face, then put her make-up on her cheek and neck till it was hardly noticeable.

"Whoever invented make-up is a genius," she muttered.

She walked downstairs and started making breakfast for Naraku. She made eggs and ham. She heard footsteps coming down the stairs and she quickly put the eggs and ham in a plate.

"Good morning, Kagome," Naraku said as he sat down.

"Good morning," she said.

"Look, I'm sorry, and to show it I'm giving you one thousand dollars. I hope you're not mad," he said as he took out a wad of cash.

"N-no not at all," she said, taking the money.

"Alright, now remember to clean the house by the time I get back," he said as he kissed the top of her head. She flinched. "Bye Kagome. Remember," he said as he walked out.

"Good he's was in a good mood," she said as she took a deep breath.

She grabbed her book bag and walked out the house. When she was walking she saw a girl walking out of the house next door.

"Hmm… new neighbors…" she thought.

She started walking again.

At school…

Kagome was in first period, in the back of the classroom, until…

"Kagome Higurashi, please report to the principal's office, Kagome Higurashi, please report to the principal's office," said the intercom.

Kagome gathered all her things and went to the principal's office.

"Yes, Ms. Kaede?" she said when she got there.

"This is Inuyasha, he's a transfer student, and I want you to she him around," Ms. Kaede said, pointing to a tall, kind of tan-skinned boy. But the most adorable thing was his doggy ears.

Inuyasha got up and walked to her. "Hey, I'm Inuyasha Taisho," she said smiling, which showed off his pearly whites.

"Hi, I'm Kagome Higurashi," she said quietly. "Let's go."

They walked out of the principal's office and Inuyasha gave his slip that had all his classes on it.

"You have all the same classes as me," she whispered, looking at the paper.

"Oh, cools," he said.

Kagome and his walked to all his classrooms including lunch (Yum!) and P.E.

"So that's it," Kagome said quietly, yet again.

"So what do we have now?" he asked.

"Um… Math then lunch, but Math's almost over, so do you want to stays here 'till Math's over?" she asked in her low voice. (Okay, I'm tired of writing her speaking low, so just pretend I wrote that she talked quiet okay?)

"Sure, I hate Math anyways," he said smirking at her.

She smiled back. They sat in a comfortable silence until the bell rang.

"So, can I sit with you and your friends?" he asked.

"… I… don't really have… friends," she said.

"Oh, why?"

"I-I don't want to talk about it," she whispered, hiding her face in her bangs, and picking up her pace.

Inuyasha easily matched her pace. "Okay, sorry."

"It's fine," she said still hiding her face until she ran into something, making her fall backwards. Inuyasha caught her and steadied her. "Th-thanks," she said embarrassed.

"You're welcome. You're clumsy aren't you?" he grinned.

Kagome blushed and punched him, making her bruises hurt. "Ow," she said, rubbing her hand.

"It was my rock-hard muscles, wasn't it?" he grinned, but stopped when he saw she was really in some pain. "Are you okay?"

"U-um y-yeah, I'm fine, it's whatever," she said mentally cursing herself.

"Let me see," he said, reaching for her hand.

"No!" she practically screamed.

"Just give me your hand." He grabbed her hand and examined it. "I couldn't have given you a bruise this bad, what happened?"

"I f-fell," she shuddered.

"You're lying."

"No, I'm not. You don't know me, how can you tell?"

"I can see it in your eyes." He looked at her hand again, then saw it went up her hand. He pushed up her sleeve, and then took off one of her bracelets. Then her saw an even bigger bruise leading up her arm. Her looked up to see her looking down, trying not to meet his eyes. He put a finger under her chin picking her head up. "Kagome," he whispered. "What happened?"

"Nothing," she muttered.

He looked around and saw a janitor's closet. He pulled Kagome into the closet and closed the door and tuned on the light.

"Kagome-," he started.

"Look, I don't know you. I don't have to tell you anything!" she hissed.

"Kagome, there's something wrong, you have to tell someone," he said.




"Because, he'll come and get me!"

That's when she cracked. She burst into tears and buried her face into Inuyasha's chest. He simply just wrapped his arms around her and held her close. She stopped crying and looked up at him. Then he saw other bruises: the one on her cheek and the one around her neck.

"Who did this to you?" he whispered.

She bit her lip. "… M-my dad," she finally said.

He pulled her into his chest. "Did he hurt you even more?" he whispered. She nodded. "Where?"

She slowly pulled away from him and pulled off all her bracelets. Then, she rolled up her pants a little, show a lot more bruises.

Inuyasha's eyes widened. "You have to tell someone."

"I can't."

"You have to!"

"Look!" She pushed her hair to the side, showing off a gash scabbing up. "This is what I get, just for not washing the dishes! Can you even imagine what he'd do to me if I told? I'd be dead!"

"If you tell, he can't hurt you anymore, he'll go to jail."

"I tried that once, but he got out on bail a beat me worse then he ever had," she said. "He almost killed me…" she sobbed out.

"What did he do?" Inuyasha said, bringing her into his chest.

"This," she said as she turned her hands, so her palm was facing up. There, you could see a gash right next to her vein.

"Kagome…" he looked up into her eyes.

"You can't tell anyone, please, I'm begging."

"I have to."

"Don't, he'll get me."

"No he won't, I promise- I swear. Do you trust me?"


"Do you trust me?"


"Come on."

Dang, I think this might be one of my good stories. So you know what to do! R & R! Bye peoples. I'll put the next chapter up tomorrow, if I don't have a lot of homework. Love You! Bye!
