Blue-Eyed Songbird by Philosophy Blue

A Marriage

CH 1

Kagome scowled and released an arrow, and watched as the air lit up with her powers. The arrow blazed through the dusk and thudded into the tree with a fizz of bright pink.

"Stupid, stupid, stupid!" she muttered. She hated everyone right now, Everyone. Mostly herself, for being born with the curse of beauty. She hated her face. It seemed a pretty face automatically reduced you to a bargainable possession in society.

It was her thrice-bedamned beauty that had landed her in this most unattractive situation. In several days, she would be married to Prince Kouga of the Eastern Lands. It wasn't anything against him personally, but she wanted to marry someone she loved. And besides, she wouldn't even be his real mate. She's just be one of his many wives.

Her scowl darkening, she let loose of a couple more arrows. Damn her beauty, and damn stupid politics!

This story was inspired by Helen of Troy, done for Skye Priestess's Fairy Tale challenge. Enjoy!
