Summary: How Higurashi Kagome managed to gain the attention of a Daddy as hot as Son Goku...
"Is this... what you really want?" Son Goku asked hesitantly, his voice very small as he watched the woman pack up her clothing with pain in his eyes, "Chichi?"
Chichi took in a deep breath and closed her eyes, "I'm sorry, Goku," She began, looking away from her soon-to-be ex-husband, "But I just can't live like this anymore. I refuse to just sit at home and watch your back anymore. You're always out training or searching for the Dragon Balls or fighting somebody..."
"But a divorce?" Goku quietly asked, feeling pain strike deep down into his soul as tears slowly flooded Chichi's eyes, "I love you, Chichi."
"And I love you, too," She answered, "But it's not enough anymore. For us to be happy – this is just how it has to be," She gave a watery smile, "It'll be hard at first, but it will get easier with time. We have two sons together, so it's not like we will never see each other again."
Goku clenched his hands tightly, furiously blinking back any moisture that was forming behind his eyes. He had known for some time that she was unhappy with how things were, but he had never expected things to be this bad. The silence was deafening, "If this is what you really want... I want you to be happy, and if this is what it takes, then..." He nodded slowly, "Then I'll just have to let you go."
"Thank you, Goku. I really do love you..."
It was a light poking that brought him out of his thoughts, "Goku-san, are you all right?" A small worried voice interrupted his thoughts of the past, "You haven't said anything."
Goku smiled goofily, pushing away the slight mental pain that always came along when he thought about Chichi, "Of course, Kagome-chan!" He nuzzled the blushing girl's cheek, "You smell so good!" He murmured, burying his nose into Kagome's thick wavy hair and inhaling deeply.
The miko stiffened and blushed and stuttered, "T-thanks..." She muttered, not used to the almost constant praise that Goku seemed to shower upon her; not after the numerous insults that Inuyasha always flung towards her.
The small girl 'eeped' as Goku pulled her towards his broad chest, awkwardly tangling his legs with her much shorter ones, "You might not know it," The Saiyan mumbled into her hair, "But you saved me. From myself."
Kagome said nothing, shocked at the admission because what did she save him from? She also felt a deep guilt because she was always second-guessing this relationship, mostly because Goku was over twice her age and she wasn't even out of her teen years yet.
Also, Goku having a son the same age as her was a bit intimidating, but she could never deny it that Goku made her feel really good about herself.
Goku was the exact opposite of Inuyasha...
And she loved him for that.
