Dear Diary

Dear diary,

You've been with me through everything. Moving to the shrine, father's death, even falling through the well. You accompanied me on my adventures through the past.

You were there when we finally beat Naraku, when we gathered all the shards. You were there when Inuyasha went to hell with Kikyo. I still sense the missing piece to my soul; I wonder why it never returned to me. Never mind.

What I'm here to talk about is my little brother Souta. We've grown close after I was stranded in the time. It's amazing how much he's grown and changed. And this is why I write you now.

I knew Souta would never be a Shinto priest. He said it often enough and I expected it. However, I didn't expect him to dive into the Buddhist religion. There's nothing wrong with that, I mean look at Miroku.

Souta's changed so much; at times I look at him or hear his voice and swear it is actually Miroku there and not my little brother. In fact the other day he called me Kagome-sama instead of Kagome or sis.

It's funny really; he's using his training to train me. He's even got us taking all sorts of defense classes together. After all it is my duty to protect the jewel or myself I suppose you could say. The jewel was reabsorbed into my body since there's no such thing as a pure wish.

Back to the topic at hand. It's crazy isn't it, or wishful thinking on my part that he could be Miroku's reincarnation. That'd be like saying cousin Keiko was Sango's reincarnation or that her boyfriend Yusuke was Inuyasha's. Then again, maybe not so insane.


Kagome Higurashi

After shutting the small book Kagome placed it in her desk drawer. A knock on the door causes her to jump and look guiltily down at her unfinished homework. "Come in."

Kagome nods at the figure in her doorway. It was her brother, she was expecting him it was almost time to start training.


Kagome's eyes narrow and she takes in his appearance. He looked so like Miroku, even had the purple and black robes. All that was missing was the protective glove and beads.

"Souta?" Kagome asks already knowing the answer. A soft shake of the head confirms her suspicions. "Miroku."

He chuckles and holds out his hand. "Come it's time for training." Kagome smiles and takes his hand. Maybe it wasn't so insane.


Please review I'll enjoy hearing your thoughts.

Sinhala-Kella (aka Scandal Mania): Hey Fazio, I LOVED your story! The bus - I don't watch Grey's but that was vividly shocking! And the last paragraph where you said April was engaged to one man but rushed in to save another. It was sooo cute the way Jackson won April back - there were so many lovely bits - 'Shonda' (LOL!).You nee...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Rebeccaseal: This was an almost perfect story that I would recommend to anyone. The only thing I would work on is painting a more realistic picture of Haiathiel. Somehow the environment seemed limited, and the land itself a bit unfinished. This can be solved simply by added descriptions to people and places. ...

jasminedazz: A very cute short story with a good balance of all elements. The writing is quite detailed giving a visual image of what is being read which quite a commendable quality in writing. Just a small pattern that I have noticed is that there is no paragraph breaker between events that have elapsed time...

missmary: This story sucked me in from the start and kept me reading when I should have been in bed. My only disappointment is how it ended. While I have nothing against Sherlock/John pairings- and this was well done- I kind've hoped it would come out a little different just for a change. Still, this was w...

Maryam Rehman: The story was overall amazingly penned down. I loved how the story transitioned from the lavish city of London to the war torn Aleppo. Even though the story had some loopholes in some places, it made me contemplate failing in chemistry, because I was up all night glued to my mobile screen rather ...

Jaslyn: I loved reading this so much!! The transformation of Nina's self-esteem was incredible to read, and while I was rooting for Parker halfway through, I was very satisfied when Harrison and Nina finally got everything straight. The side characters were adorable - I especially loved Anna, Richel, Mic...

Alex Rushmer: I just want to say that the writing in this is amazing! I read the first couple chapters and was absolutely drawn in by it, The way you use first person in this story is extremely engaging and does wonders with your character development. I immediately had a picture of the characters and plotline...

summerstone: Seriously this is one of the best books I've ever read. The plot is intriguing, I love the narrative style. Its very descriptive and unique, with minimal cliches.
