Introduction

There's More Than What Meets The Eye


4 girls who had always been struggling in life, stumble upon 4 brothers... and their lives are about to take some few turns.

{Characters}
[Taken]:Hiroki Mikazuki:[Taken]
He's the one who's good at everything. You know, the popular guy in school who seems to be great at all sorts of sports, and with one of those "cool" attitude. He seems charming and nice, or others would say... Perfect. Well, not really. He's not flawless, nor is he one of those romantic type of guy. Sure he might be good at some sports, but there's more to him that nobody really knows about.
[The Second oldest]

[Taken]:Hisoka Mikazuki:[Taken]
He's the "bad-ass" type. The one who puts on a cold act, distancing himself from others. He doesnt allow anyone to get in his way, and is very stubborn. Though in reality, he does have a sweet side, and may be a bit of a romanticist. Perhaps, all he really seeks is some real attention and love. [The Third Oldest]

[Taken]:Tochi Mikazuki:[Taken]
The soften spoken one. He's the type of guy who prefers to be reading while the others are playing games. He tends to stay away from any sorts of fights, and is known to be a "peace keeper." For some reason, he's great at persuading others, also thinking reasonably. Maybe it's because of the lack of socializing, people thinks of him as a blunt guy. But, he's actually a fun loving guy, who enjoys a good company. [The oldest]

[Taken]:Satomu Mikazuki:[Taken]
The young and innocent one. He's cute, and more of a sweet lolita type. Around strangers, he's shy and quiet, but at the same time, he's also very quick to make friends. Once he feels comfortable around someone, he tends to be overly out-going. He cares deeply for those around him, and might be a bit of a "cry-baby" but that's just part of his charm. [The youngest]

[Taken]:Anna Ichigama:[Taken]
She's the type who's always putting others in front of herself. She's constantly worrying for the others, that she often forgets about about herself. She's known to be the "motherly" type, and is strict about someone's health.

[Taken]:Charlotte Valeria Siniard:[Taken]
A bit of a stubborn girl. She likes doing things in her own way, and hates it when people tell her what to do. One of the many things she hates, is when people are being sexist. If you're going to try persuading her to do something, you better have a good reason. She also very confident of herself, and doesnt like being proven wrong. She'll do whatever it takes to prove her point.

[Taken]:Megumi Fujiwara:[Taken]
The out-going and cheerful one. She thinks optimistically most of the time, and is rarely seen without a smile. She likes seeing people happy, but at the same time, wont allow anyone to help her when she's facing a problem. She's great at all sorts of housework such as cooking, and cleaning.

[Taken]:Billie Jolynn Nagwani:[Taken]
The artistic and musical type. She's highly talented in drawing, singing, or playing the instrument, and usually expresses her feelings using these talents. All her thoughts and feelings seemed to be hiding within the beauty of he work.


~Backgrounds~ (You may want to read this)
The 4 boys are brothers. However, Male 2 comes from a different mother, while Male 4 comes from a different father.
Male 1 and Male 3 are full blooded brothers.
So pretty much, after giving birth to Male 1 and Male 3, their parents got a divorce. Their father married another woman, who gave birth to Male 2, while on the other hand, their mother also go remarried, and had Male 4.
Male 1 and Male 2 really dont get along with each other.

Female 1 is living in a small house, barely able to support herself and her family. She has a part time job at a cafe, but that's still not enough money. After her father's business became bankrupt, she was left alone with her sick mother.
Female 2 lives with an abusive uncle. Both her parents died in a care accident, and nobody was willing to take her in besides her uncle. She works in a bar, but mostly to avoid her uncle. But currently, she was fired due to the lack of "respect" she showed to the customers.
Female 3 pretty much has a decent life. She's not poor, though at the same time, she's not rich. Being that she was adopted, nobody in the family really cares for her.
Female 4 came from a wealthy family. However, her mother ran off with all the money after her father fell ill. Her dream was to attend a Music Academy, but due to the lack of money, she couldnt go. Now she's living with her grandparents, who are also struggling to support her.

So... What's the Story?
So the girls are pretty much having difficulty in life and they attend the same high school as the 4 brothers. The 4 girls are looking for some extra job that could get them away from their family, or to get money. Strangely enough, all of them happens to come across a flyer saying a maid is wanted. The price of the pay seemed promising, so they decided to check it out. Unfortunately, they end up getting lost, and stumble upon a mansion. Thinking that was the place, they rang the doorbell... only to find out it was the home to the 4 brothers...
Oh, and one more thing... Did I mention these brothers are not exactly normal? They are in fact... vampires. (And no... they dont sparkle, they dont burn in the sun. They could eat human food, and can survive without blood... but it's still tempting)

Charlotte despised studying just as much as he did. To her, school came easily, each class was a simple breeze and never required any work.. except for History. How could something so utterly boring be taught to high schoolers? It was not like any of them actually payed attention. Every so often Charlotte would look over during class and seemed to always catch Hisoka at a dead nap. The poor kid practically whined as he fell back into the comforts of the couch, he already knew what she would say to his question.

She took the opportunity to go out to her car and grab her (perfectly organized) History binder and book then returned inside, making herself comfortable on the far end of the same couch Hisoka was on. After that she proceeded to lay her study materials down on the middle cushion, looking up at him. "I really could think of one hundred things I would rather do than this." Yea, she defiantly could and making out with Hisoka would be on the top of her list, but that was not really in the cards at the moment. Plus, she really wanted to take advantage of the time she had with him, when they weren't spitting off terrible degrading comments to each other they could possibly get some studying done.

Hisoka's black shirt hung on her and bunched up along her hips on the couch as she crossed her arms over her stomach. The slight movement of the shirt made the delicious scent of the vampire's shirt dance lightly through the calm crisp air.

They must have studied for two hours before taking a break. Honestly, it was pretty pleasant. They worked together at times and independently at times until they knew just about all the material, and strange enough, she had fun. Though her mind was physically exhausted she had grown quite pent up. Trying to keep the good mood going she gave him a smile, "Well I'm done... I don't think I can take anymore on stupid U.S. presidents. In other words... want to go get some ice cream?" She tilted her head to one side, letting her hair fall from behind her ear.

When the hospital couldn't get ahold of Megumi's family, they contacted her employer since it was listed as an emergency contact in her purse, which survived the wreck miraculously. It happened to be Hiroki's home phone number as well as his cell.

The phones in the house start to go off. Also Hiroki's cell goes off too. ((Two different ppl are calling the numbers.))

Megumi was still unconsious in the hospital but at least she was stable.

((Sorry for the short post.))

"Okay, is it possible for your brain to hurt from studying too much?" Hisoka flipped the textbook shut, running a hand through his hair. To be completely honest, it really hadn't been that bad. Certainly better than their actual history class, in his opinion. For one thing, he was actually learning something. Charlotte was a way better teacher than he'd expected; you'd think she'd done this before. It was even (dare he say it?) fun at points, bringing movie references and bizarre facts into their study session. The vampire couldn't recall schoolwork ever being so...bearable. The only downside was that he found himself getting distracted by the way his tee hugged Charlotte's curves. More than once he'd had to mentally slap himself in order to pull his eyes away from her and back to his textbook.

After a while, though, both of them started running out of steam. One could only take so many names and dates before their brain overloaded. The brunette smiled at the mention of ice cream, rising to his feet. "Sounds like a plan. I'm sure Hiroki won't mind if we borrow some money." That was another thing about Hisoka: he never used his own money if someone else's was available. It was a habit he'd picked up back when he was saving up for his bike, one he'd yet to drop. Then again, it wasn't as if he was really trying.

He'd just grabbed his brother's wallet from the counter when the phone in the kitchen rang, the caller ID showing the words 'Unknown Caller.' Cocking an eyebrow, he picked up the phone and held it to his ear. "Hello? Yeah, this is the Mikazuki house. Who's this?...Megumi? Yeah, she works here part-time, why--...What? Is she alright, what--...Yeah. Yeah, we'll be right there. Thank you." Hanging up the phone, he raced into the living room, concern clear on his features. "Megumi's in the hospital. They said she was in a car accident. Come on!" Not waiting for her to respond, he headed for the garage, grabbing his keys and tossing his helmet to Charlotte. "It'll be faster if we take my bike." Let the record show that up until this point, Hisoka had never even considered letting anyone on his bike. This was an emergency, though. They didn't know how bad off Megumi was, and they needed to get so her as soon as possible. Climbing onto the vehicle, he looked over his shoulder at the American girl. "Well? What're you waiting for, an invitation? Move!"

Charlotte stood up and stretched, allowing her arms to reach for the ceiling (to bad the ceiling was vaulted and very far from her fingertips). Ice cream sure sounded delicious after all the studying; her mind practically ached for something sugary. She knew she needed to stop eating so unhealthy, sure it would not affect her now, but thirty years down the line she did not want to be morbidly obese with eight chins. Not that anything was wrong with bigger people, she just would never look bad with that build.

Hisoka went to take Hiroki's money... that really irked her. Mostly because her uncle took her money, she knew what it was like. Having something you work so hard for stolen out from under your fingertips. "Look don't take his money I go-" Then the phone rang, out of courtesy she waited to speak until he was done on the phone, but then Hisoka was running out the door. Something along the lines of Megumi and hospital. That was all it took. The girl who had worked along side her was practically her little sister, at school she had decked a boy in the face for talking bad about her, and now she was in hurt?

Something hit Charlotte. This was strangely similar to the situation to that of her parents. Everything was happening so fast again. That same feeling in her gut arose, it was gooey and icky and sat like a rock. Everything in her head began spinning. No.. her parents were gone, her uncle was nothing to her, Hisoka was just a fling.. but Megumi was that sweet little ray of sunshine that always prevailed..

"Well? What're you waiting for, an invitation? Move!"

Then she snapped out of it, catching the helmet and putting it over her wild hair at the same time she slid onto the back of the motorcycle, wrapping her arms around Hisoka's firm mid section. In any other time, being so close to Hisoka would have sent chills down her spine and drove her insane, but more than anything else she wanted to cry.. and she did. It was a silent cry, a few tears ran down her cheeks.

Soon enough they were at the hospital, but still, all to soon.

Megumi was slow to regain conscious. While she was out, she dreamt of all the times when she so desperately wanted some kind of acknowledgement from her adoptive parents. Some of the things she did was to just get them to say they were proud of her. She cleaned up the house, she became an honor student, she obeyed every rule, etc. Still they barely said anything. All of it seemed for nothing. Didn't anyone cared about her? Several tears rolled down her face as she regained conscious. She opened her eyes and saw she was in an unfamiliar place. Her body hurt all over. What happened to her?

"Aw you're awake." said a kind voice.

Megumi managed to look over and see a middle age woman with a nice smile.

"What happened to me?" she managed to ask.

"You were in a terrible crash dear. You're in the hospital right now. I am your nurse, Miaka. How do you feel?"

"I hurt all over. I was in a wreck? How come . . " Megumi started to ask.

It was then she remembered turning at the light and seeing a semi. Miake saw the shock on Megumi's face and knew the girl had just remembered.

"You'll be fine dearie. We weren't able to get a hold of your parents but your employer was notified."

Megumi was too lost in her thoughts to listen. She might have died. That thought alone scared her as nothing did. She then remembered the nurse telling her about her parents. That hurt, really hurt. Yet it didn't surprise her either. She really was no good if her parents couldn't get a hold of. More than likely they didn't care wether she was here or not. Megumi started to cry.

"Aww don't cry dear. It'll be okay." the nurse comforted.

"No . . nothing is okay . . nothing ever will be." Megumi continued to cry.

Hiroki finally managed to reach the nearest hospital. He ran inside without hesitation, running up to the front desk. He was sure his phone was ringing, but chose to ignore it for now. "Megumi," he said. The nurse looked up at him with a confused look, "Pardon me sir?" she asked. "What room is Megumi in?" he asked impatiently. "She got into a car accident, I'm sure she's here," Still seeming to be confused, the nurse started to type something on the computer. "Hold on, I'll check," she said scanning through the list. "Oh, there she is. Here, she's in room--" she started to say, showing him a piece of paper. Before the woman can finish, Hiroki was already gone.

"These people should learn to work faster. What takes so long to type in a simple name damn it?!" he muttered silently to himself. He ran up the stairs, skipping past Megumi's room. The vampire quickly skid to a stop before retracing his steps back. He checked the room number, before opening the door. "Megumi!!" he yelled without thinking. Ignoring the stares, he walked towards the girl, letting out a small sigh of relief to see her still alive.

"Do you know how worried I was?! Why cant you be more careful? You almost gave me a damn heart attack!" he snapped, before stopping himself. "Ah.... I... uh, sorry. I didnt mean to yell. I was just.." he started to trail off, looking down at the floor. That was when he finally noticed she was crying. "D-did I make you cry? Sorry, like I said I really didnt mean to..."

Megumi was trying her best to stop crying when she heard footsteps running outside her room and soon Hiroki burst through the door. When he started yelling, she was too busy trying to get over her shock to see him there. It took her a couple minutes to realise that he was even talking to her. She finally came down to Earth when she heard him appologise for making her cry.

"No . . it wasn't you . . . Hiroki, why are you here? How'd you know I was here?" she asked him, still in disbelief that he was here.

"The hospital called him, Megumi because he was on your emergency contact list. Now, I'll give you some privacy. Mr. Mikazuki is it? She's going to be just fine. Her car though is another story." Miaka said before leaving the room.
