NEW AUTHORS NOTE: I AM RE-EDITING THIS STORY, SO THE UPDATES YOU SEE WILL NOT BE NEW CHAPTERS FOR THIS STORY IS ALREADY COMPLETE! :)
IT'S ONLY BUSINESS
'…And in other news, the well known Takashi Corporation has gained yet another 4.2 mill—'
"And once again the well know Takashi Corporation is still the most powerful company in Japan, blah, blah, blah. We get it! They're fucking rich." Yelled an annoyed raven-black haired girl at the TV, her smoky gray/blue eyes oozing with annoyance.
"I don't understand why you hate Takashi Corp so much." Her brown haired, chocolate colored eyed best friend Sango stated, "I mean, they donate to charity and stuff.
"It's not that I hate ONLY Takashi Corp Sango, I dislike rich people in general."
Sango rolled her eyes and finished her hot chocolate, "I gotta start heading home, so I will see you tomorrow. Don't forget to lock the door once I'm gone"
"Yes mother," Kagome said playfully.
About thirty seconds once Sango had left Kagome heard a knock at her door. Thinking it was probably Sango, who always manages to leave something at her house she opened it diligently. "Forget something again San—who're you?"
"Are you Higurashi, Kagome?"
"Depends on whose asking."
"May we come in?"
Kagome arched her right eyebrow to the men in full black suits and sunglasses. "May you please tell me how I can help you before I let you in?"
The room was silent. Silent like there werent even any crickets playing that "song" that they play whenever night time comes along. Kagome stared at them and suddenly burst out laughing.
"You guys are kidding right? I mean honestly, did Sango put you up to this? This has got to be some sort of stupid joke right?" the 3 men stayed quiet and Kagome just stared at them with a look of disbelief written on her face. "You expect me to believe that my father's father, who I haven't heard from since I was two when my father died might I add, is on his death bed and wants me to become his heir because I'm his only blood relative?"
"Yes, that is correct," said one of the men.
" You're insane." She said blutly, Do you people actually think I'd—"
"Higurashi-sama, no matter how much you try to deny it, you really the heir of Higurashi Corporation." Another of the men chimed.
Kagome shook her head, "look, I'm not saying yes or anything... but if I really was your so called quote heir unquote, I don't even know how to properly run my own life let alone how to run a multimillion dollar company. This is a joke. No person in their right mind would let some long lost granddaughter run their business."
"This is no joke Higurashi-sama. Everything you need to know about the business will be taught to you. You will be trained in anything and everything you need to succeed."
"This is ridiculous, it's like you people aren't even listening to me." Kagome thought for a moment and decided to play along with these—body...guards...? Men in black—alien spy people? Who knows. Who care.
She paused for a moment and faked a sweet smile, "Okay, here's the deal, if you can prove it, maybe I'll think about it. Maybe."
"Holy mother of— copyrighted sayings." Kagome stared at the gated palace like house. It was at least 3 stories, not including the top floor, which gave a great view of the entire property. A huge fountain sat in the middle of the "U" shaped driveway as well as a huge garage door that was coincidentally opened and gave Kagome a wonderful view of almost every single brand of car you could possibly think of.
They walked inside and Kagome entered a room, that looked much like a study or office, "I can't believe this." She said as she sat down on a floral Victorian styled chair.
"Ah, Will ye start yer training as soon as possible then?" said an old looking woman whose golden and engraved name tag cleafully introduced her as Kaede.
"Wha-what?" and before Kagome knew it, Kagome was dragged off into another room somewhere in this awfully wonderful huge house.
"We've prepared your transcripts so you can transfer to Shikon University as a business major." Said Keade as she sat down on her desk.
"Wait a minute. Who said anything about transferring? I can't leave Tokyo University! That's just asking way too much! And what about my friends! This is—"
"Would you like your friends to be transferred there too?"
"No! That's—that's not the point!The point is, I thought it was all a joke so I asked this men in black copycats to prove to me that they weren't lying! I-I can't do this, I'm sorry. I'm really sorry my so called grandfather's sick and all but I'm really not cut out for this business. There's a lot more things I want to do with my life!"
"I'm sorry Kagome-sama, I know this is a lot of pressure on you, but you truly are the only heir your grandfather has."
"This isn't me! I'm not rich! I haven't heard from him for over 10 years now! He can't expect me to forget everything and just take over his business. Where was he when I needed him? When my father died huh? Where was he? Why did he leave us! My mother went into debt and he didn't even bother sending us any support. He didn't help us, so why shouldn't I help him?"
"Just forget it! I'm not doing this." Kagome ran out of the room, running through the huge gates of the house. It took Kagome a slow second to realize she was draping wet. She looked up at the sky that seemed to be having a waterworks shows just like her and wondered how she was going to get home. She continued her way remembering the different places they passed by when they took her to the house, 'this is ridiculous. I can't believe it. How in the world had I not known we had a connection with Higurashi Corporation? This is just—' her thoughts were stopped when she heard the sound of a car horn. Kagome looked around on the empty streets and noticed she was standing in the middle of the road.
"Hey! Are you just going to stand there like an idiot or are you going to move?" yelled an angry half demon. He stuck his head out of the car, his silver hair getting darker in color as it soaked up the rain.
Kagome snapped out of her daze, bowed and quickly ran to the other side. What had she been thinking? Dazing off like that. 'I probably could've been killed,' she thought. Kagome hugged herself as she suddenly felt just how cold it was outside. Tears mixed in with raindrops and Kagome had not noticed the umbrella that was now protecting her.
I stared at the note in the passenger seat. 'How could you do this to me Kikyo? Of all the people you could've picked, did it have to be Onigumo?' I drove off, I didn't know where I was going but it sure as hell wasn't home. I needed to think, get my mind cleared, 'kind of hard with the weather being so gloomy' I thought looking up at the dark clouds. I looked in front of me and saw a girl with long black hair standing in the middle of the streets, stopping immediately before I accidentally hit her. Maybe she was crazy.
I honked the horn and yelled "Hey! Are you just going to stand there like an idiot or are you going to move?" a little harsh I guess, but I was mad and she wasn't helping standing in the middle of the road just waiting for me or anyone to accidentally hit her and possibly kill her. She looked around, bowed and ran to the other side. She stood there and I couldn't help but watch. She looked lost, sad and confused. Just like me. I grabbed the emergency umbrella from the glove compartment and got out of the car turning my hazard lights on as I got out. I walked over to her, she didn't seem to notice.
"You'll catch a cold if you just stand in the rain like this." Her smoky gray/blue eyes looked up at me, and it took me by surprise. I cleared my throat, "What are you doing outside in the rain anyway?"
Her voice sounded like music to my ears, why? I don't know, maybe because I was lonely. "I was just out for a walk. To be honest I kind of got lost."
"Your soaking wet," I explained.
A smile, barely even noticeable, appeared on her face, she was gorgeous to say the least. "I kinda figured." She said.
"Look I know we don't know each other, but I feel compelled to help you, so do you mind if I take you home?"
She shook her head, "I'll get your car wet, besides my house is—"she stopped in the middle of her sentence and looked around again, "Where am I?" she asked.
I couldn't help but smile, "I think it's best I take you home. What's your address?"
I know its bad to end it there, but you know. I wanna see what you guys think. =] I hope you enjoyed reading Only Business.
