I do not own Inuyasha or Man of Steel



Chapter One



Kagome watched the boy. He was so cute. With dark brown hair and bold blues eyes he definitely showed signs of the man he would turn into. He slowly walked across the street with his head down avoiding the taunts from the other boys his age. He quickly turned down another street away from the jeers sent his way.

"Why are you taunting him?" Kagome asked. She was curious as to why such a small boy could rile up a big group of guys.

"Who are you?" the largest boy asked. He looked her over and started to smirk.

"I asked you a question young man." Her voice took on a note of steel. She watched the boy straighten up.

"He's a freak."

"A freak." She wondered if these people could tell what he was too. She was taking a trip across the country trying to take in the sights. She hadn't been to America in several decades and wanted to see what had changed.

It was just by chance that she needed gas and was passing through the town. She felt a strange signature she hadn't felt before. Kagome wanted to check it out, to see if a youkai had decided to integrate with this small community in the middle of America, Smallville. But the unfamiliar aura had her stopping to check things out. It had been a long time since she saw anyone who was 'other.'

"Why is he a freak?"

"He just is. What's it to you anyways?"

"It's not every day one sees bullying in action. Does your mother know you are a bully?" She tilted her head to the side as she did this looking directly into the boy's eyes. It felt like she was delving into him, deep within his soul and it made him uncomfortable.

"Shit." He whispered. "I'm out of here." Taking off away from the stranger who started asking questions about Clark of all people.

Kagome watched as the group left and then turned back to the street that the young boy travelled down. I want to know more. She thought. I think I'm going to stay here for a few days and check this out.
