Settings: When Tsuna, Gokudera, and Yamamoto are starting 2nd years.
Summary: After the Final Battle, she was sent back in her era and was given a chance to start over, but her family knows that it's painful for her to stay in the shrine so they sent her to move in with her cousin, Takeshi Yamamoto. She was happy to be with her cousin again and she's also happy because maybe she can see her brother-figure in Namimori again, but being apart for so long will change the feelings for one another, well, the 'brother' does. Would Kagome ever see him as more than a brother or would it just tear them apart?
Kagome is in her room, on her bed, thinking about the events that happened to her in the past several months. Or so what it seems.
'We finally defeated Naraku, but I have to get back home as if nothing happened,' Kagome thought sullenly.
Yes, they finally defeated the hanyou that they have been hunting since Kagome fell down the well. It was a difficult battle; many lives were lost and they were heavily wounded, but they won.
Along the way during their quest, they decided to train Kagome so she can protect herself. This idea was laid out when Kagome almost died when a youkai hit her. The others were busy fending of themselves that they failed to notice the sneaking demon. If it wasn't for Shippo crying out or Kagome's screams, they would have never noticed. Ever since then they trained her in hand-to-hand combat and how to wield various of weapons.
Miroku and Kaede also helped her to control her powers better and sometimes Kikyo would come by and also helped.
Kagome hardly change, but due to her experiences in the past, a small part of her innocence was robbed. She saw and experience horrors that were not suitable at her age in her time.
After the battle, Midoriko showed up and gave Kagome a chance to start over in her era. Before any protests could be voiced, she was transported back.
When Kagome climbed out of the well, she learned that it was the day she fell down. The time turned back to when it started. She was angry and sad that all her adventures down the Feudal Era never happened, but Midoriko assured her that it did.
Although, Kagome's family and the people in Feudal Japan still remember her quest. Other than that everyone on her era doesn't; she wasn't known as the girl who was always absent because she caught a strange illness.
A knock sounded and it snapped Kagome out of her thoughts.
Mrs. Higurashi came in and shut the door with a soft 'thud'.
"What is it, Mama?" Kagome sat up.
"Dear, I know that staying here hurts you," Mrs. Higurashi started.
"Mama, I'm fine. You don't need to worry," Kagome smiled, but her mother knows better.
"Kagome, I need to worry because you are my daughter," Mrs. Higurashi held her hand as she sat down next to the young girl, "I know that you are trying you're best, but your grandpa, Souta, and I know that you are sad and frankly, we don't like it."
"What should I do then?" Kagome's eyes were downcast.
"Do you remember your cousin, Takeshi-kun?" Mrs. Higurashi asked.
Kagome's eyes lit up at the name, "Of course I do, Mama! He's really nice, sweet and good at baseball. I remember when we use to live at Namimori he and I always play together and he always try to teach me how to play baseball."
Mrs. Higurashi or Kun-loon Higurashi laughed at her daughter's enthusiasm when talking about her cousin, "Well, Tsuyoshi-kun, Takeshi-kun's father, and I talked about you moving in with them."
"W-what? Why?" Kagome cried.
"Honey, it's for your own good. Going away from the shrine is like a breath of fresh air. Besides we are just sending you to finish your last year of middle school. If you want to go back after the school year ends you can so you can finish your high school years here. Is that okay?"
"R-really?" Kagome looked at her mother in the eyes.
"Hai, it's really your choice, sweetie," Kun-Loon pat her daughter's hand.
"I-I guess that would be fine, Mama," Kagome smiled. "When am I going to move?"
Kun-loon was happy that her daughter agreed, "What about on Friday? I know it's a short notice seeing that today's Wednesday, but you need to get settled in then your cousin will help you in school then if you're done by Sunday you and your cousin can catch up. On Monday you're all set to go to Namimori Junior High."
Kagome's eyes widened at that. She had only that time left, but she thought that maybe that would be for the best.
"Okay Mama, but what about school?" Kagome asked.
"I will call them later alright. You worry about your things and tomorrow would be your last day at school," Kun-loon smiled at her.
"T-thank you, Mama. For everything," Kagome smiled back.
"I will do anything for my children just so I can see them smile," Kun-loon kissed her daughter's forehead before exiting.
"I love you, Mama."
"I love you too, sweetheart."
With that the door closed and Kagome released a sigh.
"I guess this would be for the best. Not to mention that there are a lot of good things that came out of this arrangement. First, no pushy friends forcing me to go out with Hojo. Second, no Hojo asking me out. Third, no Hojo giving me gifts. Fourth, I get to start over and I get to be Takeshi-kun again and lastly, no Hojo asking me out!" Kagome exclaimed, "and maybe I could see nii-san again," Kagome mumbled.
Kagome started packing her things and what she will need. She pulled something out from under her bed. It was wrapped by cloth made of silk with crescent moons all around the fiber. A gift from the Lord of the West and so was the thing underneath the cloth. She unwrapped the cloth carefully and it revealed two magnificent swords.
The sheaths had silver vines and blue roses crawling from top to bottom and the background is just plain black. The hilt was also black, but it has white wolves with bright blue eyes. The blade was beautifully crafted. It was made of demon bones and from the fangs of Kouga, Inuyasha, and finally Sesshomaru. Both of the swords are strong and nearly unbreakable. She was informed that it will only be broken if a giant animal demon would crush it with its teeth. She can also channel her powers through the blades.
"Arigatou minna-san," Kagome whispered.
Kagome wrapped the swords again with the cloth and put it under her bed. She got out a small chest box from under her bed again. It was fairly big, but it wasn't small either. It was easy to hide or to put it in a bag. She opened it revealed a couple of daggers. Of course the daggers had sheaths.
She unsheathed one and touched it, careful of the blade. She sighed again and returned the things from their original positions.
Kagome stood up from her kneeling position and resumed her packing.
'I can't wait to go back to Namimori. Maybe this is my chance to have at least a normal life,' Kagome thought.
Kagome doesn't know how wrong she was.
