Going Under


Chapter 1









: Going Under

“Hey you will look at me when I’m talking to you, you dumb BITCH!” Inuyasha screamed as he reached out and grabbed Kagome’s arm.

Kagome looked down at the hand on her arm than at the person that it was attached to. Instantly Inuyasha dropped his hand and his ears folded against his head for he knew that she was going to sit him, so he closed his eyes and waited for the command to come. But when it didn’t come he looked up to see that Kagome had walked past him headed to the well that will take her back to her home in the future.

“OI! Bitch just where do you think your going? We have shards to hunt and your not going anywhere!”

“Is that all you want me for Inuyasha? To find the Jewel shards for you?” Kagome asked as her head hung in defeat and her back facing him.

“Well what other reason would I want you?”

Kagomes’ head snapped up and a light blue fire sprang up and engulfed her as she turned to look and the stupid half breed. And she sang.


Now I will tell you what I've done for you -
50 thousand tears I've cried.
Screaming, deceiving and bleeding for you -
And you still won't hear me.

Don't want your hand this time - I'll save myself.
Maybe I'll wake up for once
Not tormented daily defeated by you
Just when I thought I'd reached the bottom

I'm dying again

I'm going under
Drowning in you
I'm falling forever
I've got to break through
I'm going under

Blurring and stirring - the truth and the lies.
So I don't know what's real and what's not
Always confusing the thoughts in my head
So I can't trust myself anymore

I'm dying again

I'm going under
Drowning in you
I'm falling forever
I've got to break through


So go on and scream
Scream at me I'm so far away
I won't be broken again
I've got to breathe - I can't keep going under

I'm dying again

I'm going under
Drowning in you
I'm falling forever
I've got to break through

I'm going under

With the last note of the song was sung the bright blue flames burned hotter and hotter till pink purity flames joined in. Kagome’s body begins to twist and take on a new shape. There in the center of the inferno, Kagome changed, her hair turned from black to a dark auburn and fell just to her knees. A long bushy tail sprang forth from under the school uniform skirt that was the same color as her hair but there was a white stripe around the tip. Her eyes turned from azure blue to a deep emerald green. Aqua colored strips appeared on her writs, ankles, and cheeks. And to top everything off, atop her head, that was just a shade lighter than her hair and had white tips, was her ears.

When the flames died down they found Kagome passed out. Sango and Shippou rushed over to her to make sure that she was alright.

Kirara, I need you to carry Kagome back to Kaede's hut please.” Sango said.

The fire niko came running in her larger form and lay down so that Sango could pull Kagome on top of her. Kirara than took off towards the village.

Once the niko was out of range Sango turned on Inuyasha.

How could you do such a thing to Kagome? She is what holds all of us together, with out her we are nothing and you know it. SO WHAT THE HELL IS YOUR ISSUE?”

Shut up and leave me be before you suffer.” Inuyasha sneered.

Unknowing to them all, a lone figure in white appeared just behind Inuyasha at the edge of the forest.

Why little brother I do believe that you’re starting to sound like me. Strange one would think that you are trying to be just like this Sesshomaru.”

Sesshomaru strolled up the group and looked at the faces around him but he didn’t see her. Her sent was still fresh but she was gone.

“So tell me little brother, what have you done to the Miko this time that the only part of her that remains is her sent?”

Shippou walked right up to Sesshomaru and said to him in a nervous voice,

“He w-was yelling at her again a-and than she sang. The s-song was pretty but sad all at the same time and blue and pink fire engulfed her than she changed and now she wont wake up and and and IT’S ALL THAT STUPID HALF BREEDS FAULT THAT MY MOMMA IS NOW FOX AND SHE She she…..”

Shippou cried heart breaking tears, “momma… I WANT MY MOMMA!”

“Why you little…” Inuyasha said as he hit the kit on the head. To witch made Shippou scream and cry even louder.

A deep red blur entered the clearing at that point and stopped at Shippou’s side. Kagomes’ eyes bled red and looked at the people that stood around her kit. She could smell the tears and the fear and hurt that was coming from her kit and knew who had dared to touch her baby. Blood red eyes locked on to yellow and spoke,

“You dear touch my kit half breed! You will learn you place mutt. You touch my kit again and I shall kill you with my bare hands. Now apologies filthy Hal fling”

All the rest of the group had backed off. Not one of them was willing to get between a mother protecting her young. Not even Sesshomaru.

“Watch your tung Bitch! And watch who you call half breed ‘cause your one to or you would have ears like Sesshomaru and not like mine. And as for your brat, I will never tell him sorry he deserved it for the things that he said to me.”

Kagome lost her self at the point and attacked Inuyasha. Before he could blink she was upon him beating since into him. Sesshomaru rushed in and pulled her off, but before he could, Kagome slashed her claws across his face searing the wounds with her miko powers so that the marks would scar. Sesshomaru held her close to his chest and growled low in his chest so that it was a low humming vibration against her back. The sound was so soothing to her that Kagome found her self asleep in minutes. Sesshomaru reached out with his tail and grabbed the small kit and deposited Shippou on his shoulder. Sesshomaru turned to the others and said,

“I am taking the Miko and her kit to my palace. If you would like to join her there I’m sure that she would welcome you. And as for you Little brother, if you even think about showing your face at my palace than you shall truly suffer.”

With that Sesshomaru summoned his cloud and took off to the Palace of the Moon.

Just as they left, Sesshomaru could hear Kagome whisper,


I'm dying again

I'm going under
Drowning in you
I'm falling forever
I've got to break through
I'm going under
