Your shadow is beside you. You may not know it but it is smiling. It decides where you shall go. What you shall see. And how long you live. Who you love. Your family. Everything that has something to do with you. It knows no bounds. I cannot tell you how much my shadow follows me. It lives beside me and within me.

My name is Kagome.

I'm not your average girl so don't think I am. I have a family problem. My mother abuses me because I'm a half-demon. I can't help it. I was born that way and I can't change any of it, when I wish I can. I don't want to feel anymore pain. I don't want to walk into school with bruises and welts on my body.

I no longer want to live this way and I'll live long enough to see to it. I won't let her hurt me any longer. Her petty boyfriends can no longer have their way it me. You know whats the sad thing? She blames me for everything in her life. For her boyfriends leaving her, losing our home, having another baby. As I said, I'm to blame for everything.

To my brother, I'm his mother. I'm just another asset to this house. I don't want to live my life this way. I can't do this anymore. I must stop it before anything else happens. That I am sure of.
