Being Shipped Away

Disclaimer: I do not own Inuyasha and if I do, something like what happen in this story might happen, which is bad.

A/N: Sob sob sob...My brain has finally gone wacko. Where on Earth this come from? Examination is not good for your brain that's for sure. If you don't like this story concept, don't read it. It will leave you scarred. I had another part in Dokuga LJ. I will post it once the contest finishes next week. If you want to read it, you can head over there and search for my username. And forgive me for any grammatical error.


Being Shipped Away


“You can’t do this brother without consulting me or either my son.” The paper in her hand crumpled from the force she put on it.

“I’m the head of house here now. I have the right to do what I think is best for the family. Beside, the demon lord is offering a lot for your son.” Lord Yazuko smirked in delight. ‘Well, I will have one less mouth to feed once he is gone.’

Lady Higurashi clenched her fists in anger. She has always known her brother had thought of her and her children a burden and he had never fail to show it on his face. After her husband died, her father had taken her back but alas, her father had not lived long before he too joined her husband in the other world. Her brother took over the household and thing hadn’t been going easy for them.

‘And now he wanted to marry off my son to a demon. How can he do that? I will not let this matter slide.’ She gathered her wits and stood up.

“I would not allow…” Her sentence was cut off when the door to the room slid open.

“Mother, it is alright.” The man walked over to his mother and took the paper from her hand. “I will do this. Do not worry.” He held her hands and squeezed it.

“Then it is settled then. I’m glad you see things my way, nephew.”

“I just need you to promise me one thing, uncle. Take good care of my mother and Souta for me.”

The man frowned. “I have been taking car e of your family for years and it is about time you make up for it.”

His nephew puffed up his chest and looked at him. “I, Kagome Higurashi will show you. You will see.” He took his mother’s hand and dragged her out of there.

“Kagome please don’t do this. We can run away from here. You don’t have to do this.”

“Mother, please. I do not want to hide or run anymore. This will be a chance for me to...”

“You will never be fine with a demon.”

Kagome sighed and cupped his mother’s face. “You mustn’t be so judgmental mom.  Not all demons are bad. Look at Shippo.”

Her mother nodded. “I’m so sorry I couldn’t do anything to help. I do not want to lose you Kagome.”

“It’s alright mother. I will make you proud of me. I will show you that I will be happy married to a demon.” He kissed her forehead and led her to her bedroom. “You should get some rest. Good night mother.”

After tucking his mother in, he walked to his room and collapsed. Reality sunk into his mind and ran havoc. ‘I cannot believe this. I’m going to be wedded off to a demon like a bride!’


“Kagome! Is it true that you are going to marry the demon lord’s daughter?”

Kagome halted what she was doing and put on a smile before turning her attention to her little friend. “Yes Shippo. The wedding will be 3 week from now. This mean that I still have time to spend it with you, mama and Souta.”

The fox kit shuddered and lowered his head. “I can’t believe this. You are going to leave us.”

“Shippo… I wouldn’t be gone forever. We will be able to see each other again.”

“But you are not going to live here anymore. How will I be able to see you?” Shippo wiped his eyes with his sleeve as he sobbed.

Kagome hugged Shippo, trying to comfort him. “Oh little Shippo, there will always be a way that we can see each other and remember this always, you will always be my best friend.”

The kit gave a sniff and nodded. “Promise?”

“I promise.” Kagome settled him down and sat down beside him.

Shippo looked at him and knew his friend was just putting up a façade as to not worry anyone else. “Kagome, will you be happy with all this? Is this what you want?”

The young male looked at his friend and turned away. “Of course I will.”

“You lied!”

“Shippo, this might be a chance for me to do something right. Marrying to the demon lord may help me and my family. They are wealthy and they owned the biggest winery in the country. I might be able to learn something and maybe I will be able to give my mom a better life than this.

Shippo clenched his eyes shut and nodded. He knew how hard life has been for Kagome and his family. He stood up and held Kagome's hands with his. “I understand Kagome and I hope you will be able to find what you want there.”
