High Hopes

Disclaimer: I do hereby disclaim all rights and responsibilities for the characters in this bit of whimsy... especially for the optimistic one. A nod of recognition is bent towards Rumiko Takahashi for her creative prowess.

A Note of Explanation: This is a story in snippets, so if you believe a proper tale cannot be told on a small scale... flee now, before you are taken in! Chapters will be perfect drabbles written for Dokuga’s monthly Drabble/Drawble Chat Nights... or for random challenges... or upon request... or as gifts for friends. Nope, I don’t know how many there will be. This is me goofing off. Again. ::sly wink::

Just in Case You Missed It: All of the chapters will be one hundred words. On purpose.  

 

Chapter 1: High Hopes

Once upon a time, there was a girl whose adventure ended well. Her quest had succeeded. Her duty to Fate was fulfilled. Her prospects were rosy. Like all the other shard-hunters, Kagome Higurashi was eager to begin her hard-earned happily ever after.

With a satisfied smile, she deftly poured boiling water into paper cups of instant noodles, secure in the knowledge that the world was saved. Good had triumphed. All was well. “Who wants ramen?” she asked brightly, glancing from one friendly face to the next.

Yes, Kagome had high hopes for the future, but then... she’d always been overly-optimistic.
