New Ruler of the Southern Lands

By Blanca Maysonet

Adventure / Drama

Prologue

"Inuyasha, you're such a jerk!" screamed Kagome, she narrowed her chocolate brown eyes, that had blue and silver flexes in them, at the half-demon who stood just a few feet away from her. The half-demon, known as Inuyasha, calmly pulled up his hakama (pants) and looked up at the enraged and heartbroken miko (priestess) from the future.

The shard hunters finally thought it was time to start camp. Inuyasha volunteered that he would go hunting for dinner instead of eating ramen, which surprised and confused Kagome. Then after Inuyasha left, Sango volunteered to get the firewood, which nobody really minded, and left in the same direction Inuyasha went.

Two and a half hours passed and neither Inuyasha or Sango had returned. Kagome decided to go looked for them, she grabbed her flashlight and her bow and arrows then left in the direction Sango and Inuyasha went. She wandered around the forest for what seemed like forever, calling Sango and Inuyasha's names. After a while Kagome was ready to quit, turn around, and head back to camp, but she suddenly heard Sango's voice and went to investigate. However, when she reached the area where she heard Sango's voice, she saw something that would be forever burned into her mind.

"Kagome, please, you have to under-" started Sango, but Kagome interrupted her.

"NO! I don't want to hear it; I can't believe you did this to me. God damn it, you knew I loved Inuyasha. You're engaged to Miroku for Christ's sake, how could you betray him like this?" she yelled, waving her arm at them as to emphasize the situation.

"I'm sorry Kagome, it's just-"

"I said shut up!" Kagome bellowed, her voice was deep and loud that it sounded like thunder striking in the sky. Immediately, Sango shut her mouth, now afraid of this new side of Kagome that she never seen before.

Kagome glared at her with hatred in her eyes, "when you betrayed me once, I forgave you, but this…it's unforgivable," she said in a calm collected voice. She looked at Inuyasha to see him looking at her with a bored expression. She looked back at Sango.

"I hope you enjoy being chased around by the living dead, because Kikyo is going to kill you," when she said this Sango's eyes widened with shock and realization. It was true, Kikyo is still alive, she never did die, and she only hid from the world until she could face it once again.

Not having anything else to say, Kagome spun on her heels and left the area, back to camp to get her stuff and leave, but not without telling Miroku what was going between Sango and Inuyasha. Miroku was like a big brother she never had and she would be damned -if she wasn't already- if she would continue to allow him to marry a lying slut face whore.

Hours later, Sango and Inuyasha returned back to camp with firewood and a couple caught fishes. They were shocked to see a fire already lit and some deer meat roasting over it. They looked around camp to see Miroku sitting underneath a tree near the fire with Shippo sitting beside him and Kirara (Key-Lah-Lah) sitting right beside Shippo.

There was no sign of Kagome anywhere, Sango looked over at Miroku, "honey, where's Kagome?" she asked.

Miroku opened one of his violet colored eyes to look at her then closed it once again, not saying a word to her. Sango started to worry, she took a step towards him but then saw a note above them; she squinted her eyes and read it. When she did, she broke down crying and kept saying, "I'm sorry," but both Miroku, Shippo, and Kirara ignored her. As a crack of thunder exploded in the air, the light of the lightning allowed you to see what was on the letter, "they know."


In the forest, Kagome had been wandering around aimlessly, it has already begun to pour and she was soaked to the bone. The cold wind that blew against her wet form made her teeth chatter making her clench her jaw to stop it, which made her jaw soar. After a while, Kagome foot got caught in a root, making her stumble forward and roll down a hill under a thorn bush. She laid there on the muddy ground for about two minutes. When she finally opened her eyes, she gasped as she saw-" the abandon Southern Kingdom."

The thunder roared above the castle, the lightning flashing brightly.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone.
