"Help! Please somebody help me!" A terrified girl screamed. She looked down at the boy in her arms. His face and midnight hair covered in blood and dirt. His breathing was shallow and he was covered in sweat. He was dying.
"Oh god this is all my fault. I'm so sorry!" The young girl sobbed. Her face was stained with tears and her hair was matted with sweat. Her clothes were torn and covered in the blood.
"Shh, its all gonna be ok...I promise." Said the boy.
"No it won't! it's my fault your hurt...if only you hadn't met me-"
"Stop don't talk like that. I've done a lot of shit in my life that I regret, but meeting you isn't one. I love you. Now and forever." He finished quietly. He could feel himself slipping away, he wasn't going to last much longer.
"Please, Please don't leave me. I don't want to live without you. I love you." He reached out his pale hand and placed it on the girl's cheek wiping away her tears. She placed her own hand overtop of his and curled their fingers together. Deep violet met chocolate brown as they stared into each others eyes.
"I'll always be with you, you're my everything. You're my something to protect."
Tears overflowed from the girls eyes as she leaned down to kiss her love goodbye. Their lips met and the world fell away. In that moment time stopped, the chaos ended, and they were together like they were supposed to be.
The young boy's lips went still, his hand fell away from her cheek, and his head went limp.
He was gone.
"No! Please comeback!" She held onto his body cradling his head to her chest as she rocked him back and forth. Tears pouring down her face.
"Comeback, comeback, comeback." She whispered brokenly.
But he wasn't coming back. Why? Why her? She'd lost so many people in her life: Her family, her friends, and now the only man she's ever loved. Why was fate so cruel?
She laid her fallen love on the soft ground near her feet. She searched his belt and found a dagger. She took it out and examined it. She wouldn't live without him. She couldn't. With him gone she had nothing keeping her in this world.
"My life means nothing without you in it. I can't live knowing your not by my side." She touched his cold face and stared down upon him with loving and sad eyes. She picked up the dagger and pointed it straight at her chest. She took one last look at the dead face of her beloved.
"I'll see you on the other side, then we can be together. We can be happy. For eternity."
And with that she plunged the knife into her chest.
"Kagome!" A young girl with onyx hair, big chocolate brown eyes, and a pale pretty face turned around at the sound of her name.
"Hi Sango." Sango was Kagome's bestfriend. Sango had waist length brown hair that she kept in a loose pony tail, and light brown eyes. They had known each other since they came to the castle together as children. They were both servants to Lord Hiroshi of the Aomori Clan.
"Hey, Lady Kaede wanted us to help out in the kitchen. Apparently some other clan is coming for dinner to discuss politics and other boring royalty stuff." Said Sango with a big smile.
"Oh okay. Does she need us now?"
"Yeah unless your doing something now. Is everything okay Kagome? You seem a bit out of it." Sango asked concerned.
"Well...no nevermind it's nothing. Come on let's go." Kagome said trying to change the subject.
"Are you sure? You can tell me anything you know that." Sango had always been like a big sister to Kagome. Someone she could confide in, maybe she would feel a little better if she told someone.
"Well I've been having these strange dreams. I'm in the forest with this man and everything around us is burning even the castle. It's horrible. The man is in my arms and he's dying, but I don't want him to die. I've never seen him before, but I can't feeling like I know him. It's really strange." She looked to Sango hoping she could put her mind at ease.
"I'm sorry Kagome but I don't know what to tell you. I've never heard of a dream like that. It sounds so realistic...maybe it's not a dream." she suggested.
"What do you mean not a dream?" Kagome asked.
"I mean what if its like a vision or something?" Sango shrugged not hundred percent on her theory.
"I don't know. Come on Lady Kaede is probably waiting for us." With that the two young girls walked to the kitchen.
"Mother, you wanted me." A boy with waist length midnight black hair walked into a large bedroom. His eyes were a deep violet almost black. He was tall with lightly tanned skin.
"Inuyasha my son! I just wanted to tell you that we are going to the Aomori Castle to have dinner. I need you to look presentable." A petite woman sat at her vanity gently brushing her knee length Raven hair.
"But why do I have to go?" Inuyasha half whined. He was prince of the Takahashi Clan, his mother Izyaoi ruled as Empress ever since his father had died. He hated going to these stupid dinners. He didn't care about treaties or land or any other of the political things they were sure to talk about.
"You have to go because I want you to meet their daughter."
"Oh no, mother I don't wanna be married off! Just 'cause it worked for Sesshomaru dosen't mean it'll work for me." Sesshomaru was Inuyasha's older half brother who moved out of the castle to rule over the Western lands with his wife Princess Rin.
"Inuyasha you worry too much. This is just a trial run. If you do not like her then so be it, but you will go to this dinner."
"Inuyasha this is not up for discussion you're going."
"Keh fine." Inuyasha turned and walked out of his mother's room to start getting ready. He didn't need to be married off to some girl he didn't know. 'Plus these weird dreams have got to mean something.' He thought.
"Inuyasha!" The boy turned around to see his best friend and cousin Miroku running towards him.
"Hey what's with the long face?" Miroku had light violet eyes and short black hair that he kept in a rat tail at the nape of his neck.
"Nothing my mother is just makin' me go to another one those dinners. She wants me to meet their daughter."
"Oh and who's dinner are you going to?" Miroku said suddenly becoming interested in the subject when Inuyasha said the word "daughter."
"The Aomori Clan" Inuyasha said in a bored tone.
"Really? I hear their daughter is a sight for sore eyes. Kikyou Aomori is her name I believe." he said wiggling his eyebrows.
"You're such a lecher. Why do I even bother talking to you?"
"Because I'm your dear cousin and you love me." Miroku said in a child like voice.
"Sure keep thinking that." Inuyasha said heading towards his room.
"So what were you thinking about? I called your name three times before I got your attention."
"Nothing it's not important." Inuyasha said courtly.
"Aww come on please" Miorku whined jumping in front of Inuyasha and beginning to pout.
"It's none of your business! Get out of my way I have to get dressed."
"I'm coming to the dinner too so you can either tell me now or I'll bother you about it all night"
"No." Inuyasha said shortly
"Please, Please ,Please ,Pleeeeease!"
"Fine! just shut up gods you're annoying."
"Yes! Okay now what was bothering you old pal?"
"It's really nothing just these dreams I've been having."
"Oh Inuyasha you naughty dog!" Miroku said laughing.
"Not those kind of dreams you per! Usually I'm just walking in a forest and I hear someone call my name. I don't see anyone but I hear them. They always ask me "is there someone you have to protect?" I don't understand what it means but then I see this girl. She calls my name but as soon as I try to call out to her she disappears. Then I wake up."
"Wow, well that's strange alright I don't know what to tell you."
"Well thanks you were a load of help." Inuyasha said rolling his eyes.
"You're welcome. Now if you excuse me I need to get dressed. Maybe that new servant Yumiko will help me." He said with a mischievous glint in his eyes.
"Pervert." Inuyasha snorted. 'I don't know what it is but I have a feeling something big is happening. And I'm gonna find out who that girl is...even if it kills me.'
Hope you enjoyed it.
