The Meter Reads EmptyChapter One: Helpless?
Many would call what she appeared to be doing sick and perverse. They'd talk about her for months while pointing fingers. Everyone would be whispering behind her back about how she liked to "watch"; however, that wasn't why she stood behind a conveniently placed tree watching as the man she loves thrust into a woman that looked too much like herself for comfort.
'It's not like the situation is much better.' She thought.
The same could be said for the pair that was experiencing the adult joys of another's body. Society of any generation or blood lines would feel ill at the thought of touching a corpse, but the man she loves is doing that right now. They had a name for such an act against all morals, Necrophilia.
'Yeah, sex with a corpse isn't exactly popular even five hudred years from now.' She mumbled within herself.
No, she withdrew no kind of satisfaction from the scene playing before her tearing eyes. Would anyone believe that she was being forced to watch her love's dead lover moan in gratification? Well, she was.
For more than two months now her heart knew that Inuyasha had taken Kikyou as a real lover. She didn't have it in herself to conform it though. It was by her enemy Naraku's hand that she couldn't blink her eyes, cover her ears, or at least sob openly as she was forced to confront the reality of her "love triangle." All that was allowed by her self-proclaimed master was the falling of her tears.
The half demon stood behind her letting his body heat roll off of him to cover her in his disgusting warmth. She could feel that he was more than pleased by her scent of despair. That was only if the thing poking into her back wasn't a thick branch of a bush.
Out of nowhere a bitter chuckle broke through her lips surprising both Naraku and herself.
'I know it can get worse, but I feel as if I can't fall any lower.' Kagome thought letting her mind drifted off throughout the night.
Sleep hadn't bothered with her last night, so it came as no big surprise when a powerful demon lord decided to pick this day to command an alliance with the Inu-Tachi.
Sesshomaru stood on the side of the dirt path acting as if he were just asking for a cup of sugar. His double-headed dragon that carried Jaken and Rin on its back stood a few feet behind him. The human child was sleeping somewhat comfortably on the scaled beast. While Jaken decided to do the smart thing and keep his mouth shut.
"Did you not hear me, half-breed? This Sesshomaru said he is combining your ragtag group with his wards." Sesshomaru said. His cool molten honey eyes stared into Inuyasha's cream and honey twin pools daring him to say something different.
She wasn't in the mood or in a stable emotional state to deal with this in the early afternoon hours. Rolling her eyes, she answered for the group before Inuyasha could start a fight, "It would be an honor to have you join our group, Lord Sesshomaru." Her words were distant, alarmingly unemotional to her own ears.
Kagome new that Inuyasha had turned his glare onto her. No one needed to tell her and she didn't need to remove her eyes from the ground to know how he would react. Forcing a smile of some sort onto her face she looked up at her traveling companions.
"Come on, Inuyasha. It will give us a boost in power. Plus, when Naraku does show up we have a way better chance of defeating him." She explained. Nausea flooded through her every time that vile creatures name passed her lips, but whatever little pride remained wouldn't allow her to puke over such a simple thing.
Huffing out a sigh for added measures she continued, "Isn't Naraku's defeat worth setting aside your sibling war and pride?"
Miroku nodded his heads possibly thinking about the many pros that Sesshomaru would bring. "Lady Kagome makes a good point, Inuyasha." He admitted.
Sango nodded accepting and agreeing with Miroku. "They have a point, Inuyasha. Get over that stupid pride of yours or just go sulk about it."
She couldn't keep the smile on her face. Looking back to the dirt ground she counted the footprints she could see. Unknowingly, she voiced her thoughts to the world in a melancholic murmur, "I wonder what kind of future my footsteps will lead to."
The demons surrounding her took an interest, but none showed it. Inuyasha glared at his half brother one more time before turning his back to walk on to their next destination.
"Whatever, just make sure you don't get in my way when I kill Naraku." He called out behind his back.
Kagome watched as the rest of the Inu-Tachi followed after their stubborn hanyou friend. Smiles never seemed to reach her eyes nowadays, but she forced herself to still do it. Her broken chocolate eyes caught Sesshomaru's attention. She didn't bother to raise her voice for she knew the Western Lord would hear her, "Well Lord Sesshomaru, welcome to the ragtag Inu-Tachi."
