"In a world so bleak and ever changing, I find it remarkable that everyone could still find something worth smiling about. It is why I hope someday you'll find it as well."




One final sip. Then the bell rang, it was done.

"Time for classes!" This was the rather enthusiastic greeting of Orpei who had now made its way on his Master's shoulder. In response, Khalid looked at his shoulder to see his very lively familiar who had earned the title as the mascot of Cross Academy. He finds it very endearing and nice for others to appreciate the pink furball. Standing from his bed, he then crushed the now empty tomato juice drink in his hand which was soon incinerated into nothing more but mere ashes. His eyes never left his familair's form despite doing what he did which was actually a normal occurrence. "Shall we go Orpei?" The said creature nodded happily. "Yes, Master! Are you going to learn baking sweets?"

A thoughtful expression on Khalid's face before answering Orpei. "I don't think that is part of my subjects. Sorry, Orpei." The said familiar had a disappointed expression. He was at the Home Economics session of the Day Class earlier and found all those wonderful sweet-smelling cookies. Noticing this, the pure-blood patted its head gently and assured him, "Don't worry I'll give you some sweets later." Hearing this effectively perked up Orpei who had a very pleased expression. "Yehey! Master is the best!" In such a light note, he left his room which is reserved for him. At first, he found it odd as other vampires were sharing rooms. It seemed this was the privilege of being a pure-blood. Well, he was not going to complain about equal rights since it solved one of his problems about the matter of blood pills and all.

Donned in the white uniform of the Night Class, Khalid was quite a vision. He was both debonair and graceful in appearance. It pronounced the color of his eyes and hair even more. His nickname of Sky catered to him well, for he looked like the sky itself at the moment. He met some of the vampires along the hallways who bowed respectfully to him. Somehow, he was still not use to all of that even in his household. As a result, he would gestured for them not to do so. Soon, he reached the stairs that lead to the lobby and saw the everyone gathered there. This was a usual thing as everyone waits for him and the other pure-blood present. Although, he was certain that Inoue was already up and about. "Let us go everyone."

He still cannot get used to the fact of being waited upon. According to his grandparents, this was something that cannot easily be changed. The respect inherent due to the hierarchy carved in the very blood of every vampire. As such, he simply let it be as the doors of the Moon Dormitory opened and made their way to the grounds and soon reached the gates to cross the bridge to the Main Building. There one of the usual events, the Day Class both males and prominently females waited to capture glimpses of them. He sees this as a sweet gesture but also a bit shallow. For they really do not know anything about them, so how could this really be considered love? But the thought does count in the end.

Khalid was located at the center of the Night Class students as the others opted to shield him from such disgraceful humans as they described it. He found it humorous. Well, he was not that fragile to be swept away by the hoard of fan girls. He could manage. Adding to that, he believes the humans would not go over the bounds even more so when their Prefects are present on the site. But if it something that makes his fellow vampires happy. Then, so be it. There was no real bother to his part. As they walked through the pathway, he could hear the shouts of various names but the most prominent would be his name either called as Khalid-sama, or Prince. The humans were truly imaginative in terms of giving a person a nickname without doubt.

Then, it happened.

A ball out of nowhere came through as it was on a straight collision to his head. Fortunately, Orpei had found something of Khalid's that was dropped to the ground. This alerted him on a pure unintentional manner. The pure-blood missed being hit by a mere hair strand by the ball as he lowered himself to pick the piece of paper which slipped from his journal. It was a letter from his sister that he intended to read. "Thank you, Orpei." He gestured to the pink familiar on his shoulder. "You're welcome Master!" It was then the duo were alerted of the ball as people around them gasps in horror. It seemed the ball hit Inoue face first.

Looking at his fellow pure-blood, he picked up the ball that was now on the ground and then checked on Inoue who had a reddened mark of the ball at the center of his face. Khalid was trying to stifle his laughter as it would consider to be rude. "Inoue-san are you okay?" The other pure-blood answered in a positive and rather gibberish way stating that this was probably the sign he was praying for that Aiko still loves him. If he remembered correctly, Aiko would be Yukiko Daitokuji. He had heard that the two were quite close which he found a good thing to be. It was then Inoue grabbed hold of his hands, stating that he was cupid or something like that. However, Orpei was not fond of the pure-blood or anyone getting too touchy-feely with his Master. As a result, the pink familiar lunged at Inoue and bit the guy on the nose.

"Orpei!" Khalid called out to his familiar as Inoue in reaction released the blue pure-blood's hands to try prying Orpei off his nose which seemed to be a difficult thing judging by its mere size. "Don't touch my Master!" Chaos continued to ensue which was rather unusual for the so-called Night Class Parade.

"When the sun sets, the Night must come awake. I suggest caution or I'll bite you, just kidding."




"Now, now, now, it would not be good for the Night Class to be late." There at the middle of the path stood one of the prefects with a hand on her waist while the other hand was waving in the air in disappointment. Black hair with the sheen of purple fell on her form like a silhouette. If it was not for her uniform and the band on her arm signifying she is a Day Class student and a prefect, many would have considered her of the Night Class. "Curfew has started for the Day Class" Her words were coated with such a cheery tone as her eyes of sunset mirroring the current hue of the sky gazed at the crowd of human spectators. "I don't mind you all staying but it also means I get to punish all of you with detention or manual labor. I personally prefer manual labor." She ended it with a bright smile that could only mean a sinister plot which frightened the students. Without any more prodding, the humans returned to their respective dormitory with their tails behind their legs.

They were a bit late to arrive as Serafine had been forced to finish a homework she had forgotten to do. It was a 100-page essay about some president who died for something, good for that man, bad for her. She had to start from scratch and it did not help that she was not the biggest fan of history or politics. Thankfully, Saken arrived to fetch her so, she asked the boy to help her out. After all, everything is much easier when shared with someone. Well, the debate of being helped was took longer than finishing her homework. When it was done, she even received a few measures of scolding which she thanked him properly with a kiss on the cheek. Now, here they were finally.

"That was a bit disappointing..." Sera complained with a pout while glancing to her partner. "I expected more of a fight. I was not glaring or frowning at all... How strange." It seemed she is unaware that she looks more scary when smiling due to her known deviousness and slyness. Not waiting for an answer from Saken, she proceeded to the group of vampires, particularly the two pure-bloods who seemed concerned about a certain mascot of Cross Academy, Orpei. The familiar was also cute like Bibi. She wondered if all familiars of pure-bloods were created to be so cuddly and adorable. It was a good thing vampires were not cute at all. She would have a hard time doing her job as a hunter.

"Orpei, I got some candies for you." She presented a pack of candies and shaking it to capture Orpei's attention. It worked as the pink fluff ball released Inoue's nose and then latched onto Sera as if she was his master to begin with. This made the her smile a bit softer than the usual and then handed Orpei a candy which he munched on instantly. "Tamesis-kun, you should always have a bag of treats prepared." Sera then threw the bag of sweets to the blue-head pure-blood whether he caught it or not is up to him. Well, it would be a shame if he didn't. She had some poor boy buy it for her at the neighboring town the other day. It was a limited edition too and caused quite a penny. Well, she would have Khalid pay for it.

Clapping her hands, Sera looked at the Night Class students who was rather surprised and amused of what happened. Well, she was not since they were going to be late for their classes and as a prefect, she must have them all go NOW. "Don't look dumb and dumber there. Get to your classes impromptu." Others took her words harshly and rebuked her to treat them with respect especially the two pure-bloods present. Sera released a sigh at this and crossed her arms over her chest. "Respect must be earn and I won't have any of you being late because that would make you all disrespect in my eyes." The arguments stopped there as the Night Class soon made their way to the Main Building. As for Orpei, he seemed to be back on Khalid's shoulder as she offered it a sweet smile and the familiar did the same.

"Sakkun, do you think I can have a familiar of my own?" She started and glanced at him. "I wonder what it would look like... I'll probably name it after you!" Sera declared happily as she began to walk away. It was time to patrol the grounds to make sure there are no curfew breakers. "I won the paper-and-scissors game. So, I'll take the perimeter and you get to babysit." She waved at Saken happily. "Have fun and don't miss me too much!" She was out of sight soon after as she began her patrols as a prefect.

"Sometimes, doing nothing for a long time span is more difficult than doing something. So why don't we just get some free time?"





Saken yawned. He hated mornings and coming school in general. It was so troublesome. He rubbed his eyes and the first thing he saw as he opened them again were pink hair that are definitly... "Morning Sakkun!" The one being talked to just swift his glance to the school gates and murmured with a small sigh: "Morning Natasha. Could you finally quit calling me like that?" She just answered with a sly smile, but that was answer enough. And he was too tired to say anything against her. But there is another one who is like that...

Saken found the one, the other prefect, seem to be busy with something. A bit worried, she wanted to go to her and said that Natasha should go first. "Why? ... Oh. Again, that girl. I know she is beautiful, but she is scary. Why are you even hanging out with someone like her?" "We are both prefects, did you forget?" Saken was a bit annoyed. Everyday the same. What does she think telling him that? She is not his mother! "From the first day, it was weird that you, someone like you who is lazy and is definitly not a prefect." Natasha looked at him with observing eyes. She did not know what she was being protected from and because she knew his attitude, it was normal for her to question that. But what could Saken say? Nothing, if she wants to keep coming to this school that is. "Can we continue this after..." "Yeah, yeah, just go to you girlfriend." She said annoyed and went to the school building alone.

Arriving at Sera's place, seeing she had all things in control, he wanted to go away but as she then said he should help her out with somekind of homework, he got a bit irritated. "Hey, you are the senior here! Pretty good example you make there..." He grumbled but after some long time discussing with her - what was pretty much useless - he helped her anyway. As she thanked him in a quite odd manner - kissing his cheek - he calmed down a bit. "But don't think with just this I let you off."

"I expected more of a fight. I was not glaring or frowning at all... How strange."

He knew exactly why, seeing her expression as she smiled. But he was used to it by now so it wasn't as scary as the first time seeing her smile. But he still had goosebumps seeing her smile. Seein her not expecting any answer from him, he didn't say his lazy answer: Less fight, less work and less troublesome. But she already was off talking with the vampires. He saw that smiling blue haired vampire and the white haired unsocial girl. Quite odd pairing. Well it wasn't his business.

He didn't go after her, he just looked around, making sure that no day class students neared the night class students - for their good - but some girl are just so troublesome and annoying, that he started to make them go away with some harsh words. As they didn't want to give up even then, he glared at them and they started to go away, whispering with themselves while pointing at him. They were definitly mocking at him or call him 'girly boy'. Although it got him a bit irritated, he tried to stay calm. Being a secret protector really had it's price. Not like he wanted to be thanked everyday. But some respect was not much expectation right? For Sera it's easy, she was very suited with this 'Prefect' role. He sighed as his glance saw that something happened there in the night class 'parade' saw that little familiar of the bule haired vampire. It was just...

Yes, it was just like a small animal, although weird shaped. Just like that bird that liked to seek the white haired girl. Secretely, he had finished some drawing of them. He felt that his hand twitched. He really wanted to draw him being that angry. He had to hold it in... until he arrived at his classroom. So he observed everything to memorize, so he could draw it by remembering. It was too bad that he couldn't be a bit more closer to him. There he should be able to have a better picture. He took out his glasses and took them on. Better. Now he could... He saw Sera giving him some candies. Saken got a bit excited. Him eating was even more spectacular! Quickly he tried to remember every detail as then Sera came back after telling them to go to their classes. Indeed, he was no use at all. Sera did all the job done.

"Sakkun, do you think I can have a familiar of my own? I wonder what it would look like... I'll probably name it after you!"

"Isn't it enough that you call me with that annoying name?" He stated a bit annoyed glaring at her. But it didn't took much effect on her. He sighed. "But having a familiar isn't a bad idea..." He could draw it everytime and in every pose. That was indeed attracting.

"I won the paper-and-scissors game. So, I'll take the perimeter and you get to babysit. Have fun and don't miss me too much!"

"Right. Missing you hmm. Wouldn't it be conversely, Sera- hime?" But she was already gone to her patrol. He sighed and looked that he observed those vampires closely. Especially that blue haired vampire... and his familiar. But maybe he could find that other one with the white haired girl? "It would not be too bad being a prefect after all.", he thought, just having those familiars in his head. A serious matter of small animal complex, so Natasha.

"Those...those are irritating. Why do they do that?"




Yamato hadn't know what to do when the familiar attacked his nose. He had just been attacked by a ball (or rather it was an accident) and now this rabbit creature was on his face, chewing on his nose. He had tried to release it's hold on his nose but it was to no avail. He was relieved when Serafine managed to capture the familiar's attention with a bag of treats and immediately was thankful. A scent, however, captured his attention as he spotted Yukiko mingling with the crowd. A smile played at his lips as he quickly made his way over to her, ignoring the students as they called for their prince charming. In all honesty, he liked the pure-blood as a friend. He was an easy person to get along with and, even though they had little in common, it was nice to have another pure-blood around. His hands snaked around Yukiko's arm and pulled him towards her, causing her to turn around quickly with her free hand aimed at his face. He caught it with much ease as her eyes widened the slightest before setting back into her normal facade.

"Mon amour, comment pouvez-vous être si cruels?" he spoke as Yukiko frowned. She didn't know what he had said, however; she did catch some of the words. She relinquished his hold on her and dusted herself off as if she had dirt on her being. Bibi chirped happily from her perch on Yukiko's snow crown, causing Yamato to gently smile at the scene. "How is it that you and Bibi get along so much better than you and I?" he stated with a light chuckle. Yukiko merely stared up at Yamato, rose an eyebrow and shrugged.

"She's a bird? She's cute? You are neither of those things," she replied in a nonchalant way. Yamato had a river of tears forming from his eyes as Yukiko stared passed him, spotting a rather annoying scene. The students were clamoring around Khalid and the other Night Class students, however; that wasn't what was causing her current irritation. It was his bangs. Those god-forsaken bangs that belonged to the blue-haired pure-blood known as Khalid. She couldn't understand why they irritated her so much, but they just did. Before she knew it, she found herself marching up to the pure-blood, leaving Yamato dumbfounded and the rest of the Night Class sending her odd looks. She didn't care as she brought something out of her pocket. As swiftly as she approached, she stood before the pure-blood and pulled his bangs from his face and swept them to the side. After she did that, she placed the object, which was a simple clip, on his bangs to keep them from falling back.

"They are irritating," she simply stated, ignoring the gasps and muffled voices from the on-lookers. She didn't care what they had to say, the bangs were irritating her. If she could find a more permanent solution (that didn't involve cutting them off) she would have done it. Regardless, what was done was done. She probably earned a few more enemies, but friends and enemies did not belong in her world. Well, maybe they did, but regardless, it didn't matter to her. The sound of laughing captured her attention as she spotted Yamato clutching his sides. She rolled her eyes as she disappeared into the crowd, passing the male prefect she knew as Watoshi, and made herself less conspicuous, or as much as possible with her white hair.

You are so strange Aiko-chan, Bibi stated as she chuckled at her choice of action. Yukiko merely shrugged as she continued her way through the crowd. For an odd reason, she had the sudden urge to glance towards the gates of the school building. She cocked her head to the side, causing Bibi to slide from her perch and onto Yukiko's shoulder. There was a person standing by the front gates. She couldn't make out the gender of this person, however; they seemed to be smiling. There was a large grin plastered on the face of the onlooker before they shrouded in a black shadow and disappeared. Yukiko merely rose an eyebrow at the mysterious figure. She couldn't understand it, but her heart began beating faster than usual and she felt her breath hitch in her throat. She clutched at the front of her uniform as she tried to suck in large quantities of air.

Bibi fluttered from her perch on her shoulder and wildly flew in front of Yukiko. Yukiko are you okay?! she stated as Yukiko managed to get her breathing under control. She could feel a cold sweat over her body as beads of sweat formed on her brow. She placed a hand on her forehead and shook her head, reassuring Bibi that she was fine. Whatever the feeling was, it had disappeared just as suddenly as it appeared.

"This is definitely an odd day, but a good one probably."




It was rather surprising for Orpei to suddenly lunge at Inoue out of the blue. Although, he had an idea what the reason could be making the action of his familiar considered normal. The little critter was quite possessive of him that Keilani also had troubles with Orpei from time to time. He was not certain where such aggressiveness stemmed out from. But thinking about it, Orpei came from him. It would be safe to say, this was one of his facets which had yet to be revealed. Looking at that way, he found enthralling learning about himself through another creature. Yes, it was very fascinating.

Yet, he should stop himself from thinking any further. Inoue needed help as he opted to lure Orpei with sweets. Unfortunately, he had forgotten it back at his room. It was a good thing the prefects had finally arrived. No matter the trouble, he had complete trust that they can manage to solve it in an effortless manner. Proving his point, Serafine had procured some bag of candies effectively taking Orpei's attention from Inoue's nose. For a hunter from such an intimidating lineage, this girl was peculiar. More so, she hardly feels disdain for someone of his status. After all, a pure-blood took someone important from her. It was not a secret but, there is a silent vow never to speak of it.

"Thank you, Nightless-san." He spoke while catching the bag of candies thrown at his way. It was not that difficult although, he had this notion that Serafine would undoubtedly make him pay for these sweets on one way or another "I forgot mine back at my room." There would always be compensation for her good deeds. He really did not mind. It was something to be expected and rather he found it fitting for her to do. She then began lecturing them to go to their classes and she did not mince her words. Others did not take light of being treated so lowly or rather equally. They believed that status and bloodline were enough to commandeer honor. It is why he had a small smile on his lips as he heard Serafine's explanation of earning respect.

Orpei had returned to his shoulder as the critter was still munching on the candy Serafine gave earlier. He saw the charming smile that the female prefect gave to his familiar. Thinking about it, the same could be said about Yukiko from the excerpts he heard from Inoue. The white-haired girl gets along more with Inoue's familiar. It seemed the familiars have the charisma that their masters sorely lacking. He finds that funny. At one point, he did suggest to Inoue to become a canary to be closer to Yukiko. It was just a harmless set of words. But, the vampire did take it seriously and soon was beaten by Yukiko for being disgusting if he remembered the word correctly.

"Everyone, let us not cause trouble for the prefects anymore." The rather tensed silence being beaten in the battle of words was soon dissipated with Khalid's rather cheerful and polite demeanor. He then gave a nod of the head to acknowledge Serafine and then the other prefect, Watoshi Saken. The silent one who seemed to have been letting the girl handle the situation. Others might find this rather demeaning. But, there is a saying. One should be more wary of those who are quiet. They are the most dangerous and perhaps Serafine knows this.

Walking passed them, it was more easy since the Day Class had already returned to their dormitory. Yet, there were still a few lingering about to catch one last glimpse of the Night Class. Speaking of which, he should apologize to Inoue and even more so, Orpei. Stopping momentarily, the others following him did the same having curious expressions on their faces. Khalid looked around him and spotted Inoue with the white-haired girl. They seemed to be having fun once more if it counted having Inoue being smacked around. In his opinion, the two were getting along just fine.

But the next event was rather unexpected just like that day. Yukiko approached him just like that. Not minding everyone. Not caring for anyone's approval or even his permission to do so. Her strangeness as others called it reminded him of the morning breeze blowing over the mountain range. It was refreshing. She spoke the same words that time. His bangs were irritating. He wanted to smile at them and even released a light laugh. However, this was prevented because unlike that time. She reached out to his hair and then pulled his entwined forelocks to the side. Then to secure it there, she placed a simple clip.

Blinking his eyes a couple of times, he was once more left astounded. He could hear whispers of how disrespectful or brazen the girl is. In his opinion, there was nothing rude about it. Rather, it was very amusing and brave of her to speak her words without care. Fortunately, Orpei did not see this as a bad thing and looked at the new hairdo his Master was sporting. It was unusual but his face was more pronounced now. "Is she planning to be a hairstylist?" Hearing the words of his familiar, Khalid was returned to reality and heard Inoue laughing at what happened. Reaching for the pinned bangs, he did not do anything to remove it. "I believe that would be nice." After stating that, he smiled brightly that the on-lookers were not bothered anymore of what Yukiko did.

He looked at Inoue and gestured for the pure-blood to come along. "Inoue-san, let's get going. A few moments apart from Daitokuji-san would make the heart grow fonder." As for Orpei, he kept a watchful eye on the other pure-blood. The guy was far too physical in his way of relating to others. "I'm sorry about what happened." Orpei started as he pointed at the man's nose. "Orpei, you should apologize too." The familiar pouted and looked away in stubbornness. Shaking his head, Khalid showed Orpei that sweets he received from Serafine. "I would not give you any of these if you don't apologize." Left without a choice, the pink critter did so in a dejected manner. "...Sorry."

When that was done, the Night Class once more proceeded to the Main Building which would be used by the Night Class solely during this hour. Yes, this is the hour were mysterious things happened. The skies that were fluttered with the setting sun was now changed into a dark canvass with stars flickering like diamonds. Sun was replaced by the Moon which was currently at a wonderful crescent shape. Glancing at Inoue, he stated with a small smile. "I think I can understand why you like Daitokuji-san. She is very interesting." Touching the hairpin once more before entering the threshold of the Main Building. The doors closed behind the Night Class students while the Day Class turned in to sleep. They are here to revel in the darkness which they were born to for they are vampires.

"How can you stand being around so many people? It's called having friends silly."




"If that were only true, she would have been mine already," Yamato replied in a light tone, however; the meaning behind those words had a sense of playfulness to them. He liked Yukiko, but he would never choose her as someone he would spend the rest of his life with. She was his friend and that's how he wanted it to remain. He knew she was from a rather pronounced pure-blood family, one that had a rather interesting back-story, but that wasn't his place to say. Even if the girl had been a pure-blood, his heart would remain with a certain beauty in his class. He sighed and was struck out of his thoughts when Khalid asked Orpei to apologize for attacking his nose. He rubbed it absentmindedly, feeling the wounds already healed and laughed nervously.

"No need to apologize, I wish my familiar was that protective of me. Instead she spends all her time with my Aiko," he pouted slightly, earning a rather confused look from some of the other vampires. He waved his hand in front of him, dismissing the gray cloud in front of him as he smiled. "I swear sometimes the two are contemplating getting rid of me some morbid way," he stated fairly casually, as if the thought didn't matter at all. "But at least she thinks of me!" he stated all of a sudden, hitting his fist to his hand as if he had just had an epiphany. He continued to follow Khalid with the rest of the Night Class to their classes.

Although in reality, it wasn't a normal class session to begin with. They, in a sense, were being guinea pigs to the new blood tablets that had been created. Not to mention the teachers weren't exactly teaching them proper etiquette to begin with. They served much like a miniature Vampire Council, bringing important news and other nonsense that Yamato paid no attention to. His attention was rendered to the blue-haired male beside him when he spoke. A fond smile played at his lips when Khalid told him of his reasoning for liking Yukiko. He chuckled at the pure-bloods words and nodded his head in agreement.

"That she truly is. Our first meeting was rather," he paused, rubbing his face absentmindedly before continuing "entertaining. She kicked me because Hoji-san decided to play a prank on her and tried to pull at her skirt," he stated. Yoru Hoji, the one he referred to, was one of the Day Class students he had befriended due to his current obsession of learning how to play soccer. It was a rather interesting sport he had stumbled upon on one of his daily meetings with Yukiko and had been fascinated by it ever since. Not to mention Yukiko had been a part of the P.E. class it had demonstrated with and he found it amusing at how she remained in her school outfit instead of the standard white shirt, red pants.

"Unlike them, however," He stated, pointing to the crowd of vampires walking behind them, "she stays true to her words and every meaning of them. Of course you just happened to be lucky the only thing irritating about you is your bangs. She finds me annoyingly irreversibly disgusting," he continued, staring at the clip Yukiko had moments ago placed there. He shook his head and laughed as he followed behind the blue-haired male, listening to the doors close behind them to begin their night.

Yukiko stood in her place for awhile as her breathing finally evened out. She glanced where the figure had just been moments before and frowned. Who was that person and why did that happen to her so suddenly? She was pulled out of her thoughts when Bibi pecked her cheek lightly. She turned and smiled down at the yellow canary and held her hand out to her, watching as Bibi landed on her fingers. The yellow canary ruffled her feathers, allowing her black eyes to sparkle like a star in the midnight sky as she stared at Yukiko. The night had already come out to play, lighting the campus in an eerie glow that seemed somewhat, beautiful to Yukiko. Her reverie was cut short by the introduction of one Serafine Nightless, the female prefect whom Yukiko was actually quite fond of.

"That, is not necessary Serafine-san. It was just a loss of breath for a moment. I am fine," Yukiko replied as she offered a half lit smile to the prefect. When she mentioned reprimanding Yukiko for breaking curfew, it caused her to laugh. It wasn't a mocking tone but more of a fond laugh. "Thank you Nightless-san, but I will return to the dorm room. I just need to rest a bit," she stated, watching as the prefect left. She truly meant what she said, however; a slight breeze played with her hair before she had an odd sensation of wanting to travel into the forest tingling in her legs. And she did just that, allowing her legs to carry her to whatever destination they were headed towards. She stopped in a subtle clearing, glancing around as the grass sparkled with the faint drops of dew lingering at their fingertips. She smiled at the scenery, especially the way the moonlight created a soft halo around the field. It was peaceful, something that tugged deeply at her lips that turned into a smile. Bibi stared up at Yukiko and tilted her head slightly.

"Kiko-chan, will you sing for me? It's such a pretty place and it needs a bit of life to it!" Bib stated in a happy voice, allowing her voice to be heard for the first time in days. Yukiko frowned slightly before it was replaced with a smile. She couldn't say no to the face Bibi was currently making and she set the canary down on a nearby log. She took a seat next to Bibi and pulled her hair back, fastening it with a band she kept in the other pocket of her shirt. It was rather odd that she had hair accessories in her pocket, but then again, it was rather odd that she used them to begin with. Perhaps subconsciously she would have eventually placed one on Khalid's hair just to serve as a source of temporary relief of the itch she received every time she spotted his bangs.

"Okay, but don't tell Yamato-san. He'll be upset and then he won't stop bothering me to sing for him. It is bothersome and I don't like it when he does that," she agreed as she stated the conditions. Although Bibi nodded, she opened the link between her master and herself because she knew how found of Yukiko's voice Yamato was. He had stumbled upon her singing once and had begged her to sing more often for him. Of course this only ended with a broken finger and elbow from the white-haired girl as Yamato cried childishly. Bibi laughed at the memory as Yukiko pet her head with a single finger.

She then proceeded to close her eyes and allowed the moment to cover her. She was searching through her memories of a song she would like to sing. One entered her mind as she re-opened her mind. She allowed the wind to carry her voice as the lyrics began to pour through her mouth. The song was light, and yet, it had a underlying meaning to Yukiko. What the meaning was, Bibi didn't know. She was just listening to the song as it was carried by the wind and to whomever was close enough to hear.

When the song finished, the sound of clapping echoed through the vicinity. Yukiko opened her crimson eyes as she spotted the cloaked figure from earlier. This time, however, she was able to discern the fact that this was a woman before her. The silver strands falling from the black cloak and the way her body screamed feminine, there was no doubt about it. It wasn't very concealed beneath the blanket of darkness as the woman stepped forth.

Such a lovely gift, I wonder what it would be like if someone were to take it from you," the woman stated, causing Yukiko to narrow her eyes at the newcomer. "No need to be so rude child, surely you have more respect for your elders than that worm of a father of yours," she spoke, causing Yukiko to relinquish the glare she had on the woman and formed into one of curiosity. The woman laughed at her change of expressions. It haunted Yukiko's ears as the woman peered from beneath the veil. Her eyes, something about them caused a shiver down Yukiko's back as she peered into the void-less eyes. They were a haunting black color, almost as dark as the midnight sky above.

"What do you know of my father? Answer me," Yukiko stated in a rather demanding tone. She wasn't in the mood to play, however; a strange aura exerted from the woman, causing Yukiko to step back slightly at the sheer force of it. The laughter of the woman continued to ring through Yukiko's mind as Bibi had been blown off of her shoulder. She spotted the yellow canary on the ground, eyes closed to the world but the shallow breathing gave Yukiko a sighe of relief.

"Such an impudent child. You are definitely of this blood, but you are not my concern right now. Go to sleep," the woman stated. Before Yukiko could react, the world around her went black, her vision blurred as the laughter of the woman continued to ring in her ears. The only thing she remembered was the sound of her name being called, being cradled against someone, and the flashes of emerald and crimson flickering back and forth.

Yamato had been inside the classroom, listening to the instructor speaking of something, but he wasn't paying attention. He was listening to her sing, his beloved Aiko. He had a smile tugging at his lips however, just as quickly as the smile appeared, it disappeared. Bibi had left her connection open to him when this strange woman appeared. She had spoken of Yukiko's father, and that seemed to spurn the girl, causing her to lash out at the woman. That did not bode well for the woman seemed to have forced a malevolent force and knocked out his familiar. This caused slight alarm to Yamato who abruptly stood from his chair and left without a word, leaving his teacher to call after him. He ignored it as he made his way through the forest, searching for the scent of his familiar and Yukiko.

He had found them moments before Yukiko had fallen unconscious, the woman gone, and his familiar laying on the ground in the same condition. He caught Yukiko before she hit the ground, cradling her form to his as he scooped Bibi up as well. His eyes had flashed crimson when he approached the scene, expecting a fight of some sort, but that was not the case. He glanced down at his friend and sighed.

"What mess did you get yourself into, Yukiko?" he stated as he made his way to the infirmary, Yukiko tucked in his arms.

"Sometimes, I believe I am living a life that is not mine. Would you believe me if I tell you that?"




It was entertaining to hear Inoue's stories and responses. The pure-blood was no doubt the kind that thrives with so much vigor and energy. Inoue was an cheerful and energetic person as he would always have an interesting gesture to match his words or a silly story to back up his claim. A very animated person, it is why Khalid finds him truly a fun person to be with. At the same time, it is nice to converse with someone where status and pedigree were not an issue. Even he gets a bit irritated with all the decorum and formalities. After all, he came here not only at the behest of his grandparents but also to gain a sense of himself far from the things he was used to.

Well, it was not the same with Orpei who looked at Inoue keenly. It was clear for everyone to see that the pink familiar was not overly fond of the said pure-blood. This is quite a curious matter to Khalid which had prompted him at one time to jokingly noted to Inoue, "It seems familiars don't like you that much, Inoue-san." He remembered that Inoue simply laughed at this. Still, the main reason for this dislike is not clear. However, it was not something that Khalid greatly desired to know. So, it was left at that. In addition, it was rather amusing to see Inoue's interactions with Orpei and Bibi, if he recalled correctly.

There is also Inoue's interesting point of view like noting that Daitokuji and Bibi were planning to eliminate him. This earned Khalid's smile as he continued to listen. Compared to Inoue's life at school, it seemed more colorful than his. After all, he has only one year to be a student at Cross Academy. Yet, he wished that he would have great fun in that short time. The man shared the story about his first meeting with Yukiko. He had heard rumors of the exchange between the two. Now hearing it from Inoue, he had wished to have witnessed it firsthand.

Yes, the Daitokuji special pure-blood was not the kind to hide her words. It is why he finds the girl fascinating and the way Inoue described that his bangs are the only that Yukiko finds irritating was also funny. This made him released a small laugh which made those around them looked at the blue vampire in wonder and light adoration. Touching the hairpin that kept his crisscrossed bangs in place, his laugh turned into a small smile. Yes, the girl was truly interesting.

Then, Inoue compared Yukiko to the vampires surrounding them. There is truth in Inoue's words. The vampires around them were hiding behind the facade of superiority and outdated aristocracy. There is always formality and the sense of fear. He would never know their true intentions unless the guarded walls crumble. But then, what would await him from that point? Would it be a sad truth or a hopeful visage? Well, he will never know or may be someday.

In any case, his thoughts did not linger too much on that. For they soon reached their classroom and their teacher or more appropriately, presiding officer, opened the discussion for politics and such. In reality, the Night Class is the parallel version of the Vampire Council. Their jurisdiction is that of the Academy. The adding fact is that they are also the experimental subjects for the blood pills.

Unknown to many, Khalid's constitution seemed to reject the alternative supplement. He does not also inform anyone about this and maintains his thirst with the weekly supply provided by his sister. Though, he truly hopes that his body would soon accept the blood pills. He did not want to bother his sister than what was necessary. Furthermore, he truly wanted to learn not to feed on someone whether they are a vampire or not.

Truly, the matters about the vampire world does not really interest him that much. It was probably due to the fact he is not that integrated in it. Even now, his grandparents are the considered leader of their clan. His parents would rather travel around the world than be bothered about such matters. However, he still would have to learn the process of their kind and he is willing to do so. It is one of the ways to protect those important to him, such as his sister.

The discussion continued on but just like Inoue, he was not really listening to all the details of what the teacher was saying. It was then Inoue suddenly left the room without much of word. Khalid could sense the urgency in Inoue's actions. Even with the teacher calling out to him, his eyes never left the form of Inoue who soon fade away from his line of sight. Something must have happened and his conclusion, Yukiko is involved. Standing from his chair, the entire class now looked at him and even the teacher. "I would like to excuse myself for now, sensei." After stating that, he left without saying anything else.

Walking along the hallways, Khalid had decided to follow Inoue. He wanted to help his friend even if it was just a little thing. But, it was then he sensed something. As he passed by a window, his eyes caught something from the corner. Stopping from his tracks, he looked through the glass pane and saw a silhouette underneath the cover of trees. Despite that, he could discern it was a woman. But who? He was not certain yet the feeling of knowing plagued him. Did he know this person? Why could he not remember? Then, the shadow-covered female seemed to be speaking something. Her lips could be seen moving.

"I have finally found you." Khalid unconsciously spoke the words he managed to understand from the woman's lips. Find him? What does that mean? Then, Orpei spoke to shook him away from his reverie. "Master, is there something there?" This question made him look at his familiar in an odd manner. "Can''t you see her?" He pointed and Orpei followed the direction and shook its head. "Nope!" Returning his attention to the mysterious woman, she was gone as if her presence was not there to begin with. "Was that just an illusion?"

"They say if you make a wish on a shooting star, No matter what, the universe will conspire to make it come true."




Yamato sighed at the unconscious girl in his arms. Her brows were furrowed together and she seemed to be having an internal battle with something. He had tried to pierce the veil of her thoughts, but he couldn't. It bewildered him to a degree. He could, no matter who it was, pierce into someone's thoughts and read them and manipulate them to his own accord. He had tried to see what Yukiko had seen, but there was a barrier around her mind. He glanced at his own familiar laying in his pocket, her breathing barely noticeable but still there. The crunching of his boots beneath the grass did little to calm him as he glanced to the sky, watching as a single star fell.

"When you wish upon a star," he stated, continuing his journey to the infirmary. It didn't seem that Yukiko was physically injured, however; he didn't want to take any chances of perhaps something had happened from the moment Bibi lost consciousness to the moment he arrived. He could hear voices in the distant, ones that sounded familiar to the Nightless and Saken prefects. A frown marred his face when he caught the last sentence of Serafine. So, there truly was a stranger amongst them and he hadn't imagined it either. He had hoped that his familiar had been hallucinating when he spotted the silver haired woman speaking to Yukiko, but apparently it was the truth. Cradling Yukiko closer to him, making himself comfortable, he reached the Academy and proceeded down the hall. He blinked a few times, noticing the Blue-haired vampire staring out the window, catching the end of his statement about an illusion.

"Are you seeing things to Tamesis?" he half joked, but the edge in his voice stated otherwise. This person, whoever she was, apparently had just appeared. Her presence was around the entire school, however; the odd thing was, she didn't have a scent. He couldn't pick up anything at the grounds they were just at. The only thing that filled him was the perfume of Yukiko and his familiar, and the grass and tree's around them. There was no lingering smell of the mystery woman. He shook his head, glancing at the package in his arms and towards th blue-haired male.

"Apparently Nightless-san has seen this figure as well," he stated, leaving the scuffle of the interaction between his friend and the woman out of the statement. Before he could say anything more, a sudden clapping noise filled the air. His face stung a bit, and out of reflex, he let go of Yukiko as she fell to the floor, placing his hand on his face in the process. A thud and a curse were released from the lips of the girl on the floor as Yamato blinked owlishly at the scene. His emerald eyes met scarlet as Yukiko glared up at him.

"You idiot! Why were you carrying me?!" she nearly shouted at the pure-blood, oblivious to the fact that they had company. "I told you not to touch me in such a manner you...you..." she couldn't figure out the correct words she wanted to say, so she opted to hesitate for a moment. Yamato could only stare in wonder as Yukiko berated him. He was carrying her because she had fainted, and this was how she repaid him. By slapping him and yelling at him? His laughter echoed through the halls, causing Yukiko to stop in her rant and placed a hand on her hip.

"Well princess, you passed out in that lovely forest of yours. You could have hurt your head on a rock, or worse! Someone might have tried to kidnap you!" he feigned as he grabbed her, wrapping his arms around hers so that she couldn't move. "But your prince charming was there to save you!" he continued. Yukiko could feel the irritating vein at the back of her head pulsating as she twisted out of his grip, kicking his shin in the process.

The pure-blood merely continued to laugh at her flustered appearance before she turned around, finally noticing the other pure-blood in their presence. She blinked, studying his face for a second and noticed the hair clip she had placed their earlier that day had still remained. She couldn't understand why, but it caused her to smile a bit, however; her attention was garnered by the pink rabbit located near him. Before she could stop herself, her hand snatched Orpei and embraced him tightly.

"This...is...adorable," she stated in a broken sentence. She couldn't help it. For some odd reason, anything small and cute seemed to be her weakness. In this case, it was familiars. She couldn't understand why she was attached to familiars so much and had once begged her father to show her how to create one, but he had explained to her that she couldn't. Regardless, the pink rabbit was now in her embrace before she quickly released it. "Bibi" she stated suddenly as she searched for the yellow canary. Yamato ceased his laughing and pulled the little Canary from his pocket.

She gently reached for the yellow bird and felt her body, feeling a few broken bones in her wings and ribs. She frowned a bit as she glanced around. She knew that the bird would not heal properly, even if Yamato re-absorbed her back into his flesh. She couldn't place it, but there was something surrounding the bird. It was an aura that she couldn't place. It didn't have a malevolent force to it, but it wasn't necessarily something that could be considered friendly either. There was one thing she could do for the bird though, but it would require something that she wasn't sure the two pure-bloods in front of her would be able to manage, however; she turned her attention towards Yamato and walked up to the pure-blood.

"Yamato, open your mouth and give me one of your fangs," she demanded, causing Yamato to take a hesitant step backwards and raise a questioning eyebrow. Before he could retort, Yukiko fixed him with a deadpan stare as he sighed in defeat. Doing as he was told, he elongated his fangs and opened his mouth, quick enough for Yukiko to prick her index finger and remove it towards the birds mouth. It was something she learned about when she was a child. One of the vampires who had been hurt by a weapon had attacked Yukiko out of a need to replenish blood. Of course that vampire no longer lives (her father saw to that), but she was able to see the immediate healing result her blood had caused. She wasn't sure if it would work on familiars, but she had to try something or Bibi might not wake up. She couldn't have her favorite bird disappearing on her. Who would she talk to and plan with?

"Yukiko, was that wise of you?" Yamato stated, feeling the drop of blood assault his taste buds that was left behind. It was intoxicating and he had to cover his mouth to keep himself from trying to get more. This was pure torture to his senses, but he had to abide by the school rules, less he risk setting a bad example in front of the other pure-blood of the school. His body relaxed and his eyes glazed over, seemingly appearing in his happy place as he had once stated. Yukiko ignored his comment as she watched Bibi stir, opening her black eyes to peer up at the snow-haired girl. Yukiko smiled as Bibi chirped happily, flying so that she was now nestled in said hair. She turned towards the two vampires and merely stared at them. Yamato, his face was one that was twisted in a pure heavenly look, but she couldn't read the Tamesis' face. She pushed the thoughts away and left the two to themselves.

"Shouldn't you two be in class?" were the only words that left her lips as she disappeared down the hallway. No one would have been prepared for the morrow when a new student to Cross Academy would be joining them.

"They say everyone is connected so, we will still meet again, somewhere, somehow..."




Orpei tilted his head in confusion as the query of his Master echoed ever so softly. What was the illusion? He looked at the window once more, but all he could see were just trees. There was nothing out of place in his personal observation. The pink furry creature wondered what his Master was truly pertaining to. "Master?" In the end, he had decided to ask. "What did you see?" Hearing Orpei's words, Khalid directed his attention to the pink familiar. Somehow, he was not sure how to answer that question. What did he exactly saw? It was probably a woman but then again, it might be something else entirely. He could never be certain.

Silence reigned as Khalid tried to collect his thoughts to provide an answer that would satisfy Orpei and more so, his own questions. However, Inoue had taken the initiative to break the reverie. At the same time, he was actually thankful of the information. It seemed he was not the only one who saw that mysterious figure. From what he could assume, Nightless had also seen this elusive stranger. "I wonder..." He murmured more to himself. This had become more intriguing but, it was pushed aside as he noticed the object or rather the person his fellow pure-blood was carrying. "Is Daitokuji-san hurt?" He asked with concern lacing around his tone.

But before any response or statement could be given, a resounding sound of skin being slapped echoed through the hallways. Those sky blue eyes widened in amusement as the next course of events were rather the domino effect of a comedy skit. It seemed Daitokuji was in for a rude awakening and the at the receiving end was Inoue. Sometimes, Khalid does wonder if the pure-blood was masochistic. Perhaps, the man was to a degree. For, Inoue laughed and lighten the situation with the usual sweet humor of his. Normally, a person would be irritated to be slapped and then berated when a gesture was done out of good intentions.

Well, Khalid had no complaints of what he was witnessing personally. These two were far more entertaining than staying inside a room listening to chatter that hardly touch the most important of issues. "Are they comedians, Master?" Orpei inquired with the purest of intentions. The blue pure-blood answered with a small smile. "I'm not aware but they could be." The familiar looked at the two once more as if wondering if they could pass with such an act. "I don't mind him being hit all the time." Hearing his familiar's response, it was almost hard not to chuckle. But, Khalid had managed to hold it in.

Due to what happened next, he was not able to contain it anymore from the actions of Daitokuji. Khalid had hardly noticed that the pure-blood turned human finally noticed his presence. It was because he was busy conversing with Orpei who was rather curious in the relationship between Inoue and Daitokuji. "So, they are---" Orpei was not able to finish his words as he was snatched from his Master's shoulder without warning by the silver-haired female and had been placed into an embrace. It was then the Tamesis pure-blood released his laughter in tandem with Inoue's.

The girl was not just fascinating but oddly lovable in that sense. As for Orpei, he was trying hard to get out of the girl's embrace for he was not able to breath anymore. Thankfully, he was soon released in favor of another familiar. Orpei quickly flew towards his Master who caught him into his hands. "That.... was... scary..." The pink critter spoke in a breathless manner as Khalid had now ceased his laughter and offered Orpei a comforting smile. "She just likes you." This made Orpei shivered in fear of another death hug near in the future. Placing Orpei in his shoulder once more, he patted its head to soothe the creature who was not used to such an introduction. "It will be fine."

That was the time Khalid took noticed of Bibi who seemed to be unconscious. Khalid was rather curious what exactly happened earlier which made Inoue rushed out in alarm then returned with Daitokuji asleep. But, what made him looked with wonder were the words that left the girl's lips. Fangs? Why would she want to see Inoue's fangs? However, he was not able to conclude the possible outcome of the girl's demand as the scent of blood tickled his nose. A dangerously alluring scent tugged at the thirst deep inside of him. Orpei sensed the subtlety of the rising hunger within his Master. "Master?" The familiar called out to ensure that this was still his Master.

Sky blue eyes darkened just slightly in the color range as they glanced at Orpei. The familiar rubbed its face on his cheek which made Khalid softly smiled. His thirst was once more locked in its cage. "I'm fine." This answer of his made Orpei smiled with much enthusiasm. Patting Orpei's head, he looked at Inoue who seemed to be in ecstasy of some sort. Probably from the slight taste of Daitokuji's blood. He did hear about rumors of her blood being sought out for many reasons. It seemed that some of those stories were real. One is the scent and now, the state of recovery for Bibi. Then. the taste must be pure delight from his observation of the other pure-blood.

Fortunately for him, Khalid had not abstain from drinking blood which comes from his sister. This gives him more tolerance and even more he had just fed so, he was not that hungry to begin with. Still, the effect of Daitokuji's blood was truly a concern in relation to his senses. A fascinating yet dangerous girl she is. It was then he felt eyes on his form as he met those crimson eyes of Daitokuji. As far as expression could go, Khalid has his usual expression of amicable neutrality even when the girl implied that they should be in class. He could say the same thing to her which he did. "Shouldn't Daitokuji-san be back to her dormitory now as well?"

It was not said with any negative intentions or emotions. Khalid stated what he thought of her situation. There was a small smile in his lips. He then removed the hair clip as his bangs returned to its normal state. After doing so, he directed his attention to Inoue. "Inoue-san, we should go back now. We would not want to cause trouble to the prefects." Daitokuji should be fine now judging by the fire in her spirit. Turning his back and taking opposite direction of the girl, he too soon disappeared from the hallways. His reason for removing the hair clip rather ambiguous while Orpei simply looked behind them to cast one final look to the girl who was earlier about to hug him to death. "Odd girl..." Khalid had an amused smile. No one knew at that moment when the moon gives way to the sun, everything will change.

"Once I open my eyes, everything is different from before and that is why I kept living on..."




Sleep, it comes easy for Khalid. There was nothing that grave of a matter to prevent him from sleeping properly. On the contrary, he looks forward to it. He would be immersed in a world so surreal and yet so familiar to him. It was like that he was not a mere audience acting a whimsical notion. He was more like the actor revisiting fog-covered memories of a time long past. Every time, he would see and meet different people who appeared to relate to him on a certain connection. It was like remembering and then reliving a portion of his life in a different world, a different time, as a different person but then again, it was not that different.

"If I could do something to save that person... I will do it without hesitation." Eyes that reflected such passion and determination with the hue of the clear sky gazed at someone. A face blurred by the passing wind. It was cold and dreary. Outside, snow fell in droves. The season of winter surrounded him. There was an answer. But, it was not something that was heard. How odd for in the end, he seemed to respond to the soundless voice of the mysterious person he was talking to. "I'm afraid. Why wouldn't I be? But, there is something more important than my fear." Then, there was a fluttering kiss on his lips. It was sweet but who gave it was truly a question mark. The dream ended with a musical note.

However, there is a twist to these dreams of his. Once he wakes up, they are all forgotten. The only thing left was a lingering sensation that he had a dream. But as to what it was about and why he was having it, there had never been a moment he had thought about it. Well, he simply does not remember. So, what was the use? A hand reached out to the nearby end table. It soon touched a clock still ringing to its utmost desire. With a tap, the sound stopped and eyes of sky blue were slowly revealed behind closed eyelids. So, it was already that time of the day.

Placing a hand over his face, he glanced towards the window where the curtains were covering it. Well, he could hear rustling beyond his doors and the faint noises of the Day Class. From these, he could conclude that the sun was about to set and the reign of the Night Class was to begin anew. Rising from his bed, he held his throat. His thirst was creeping from within him. This brought a memory of what happened last night. The scent of Daitokuji's blood was truly alluring. It was good to know he was tolerant to it. He could already see Keilani getting angry over the fact of him taking in another blood. The scene was bringing shivers to him already.

"Good morning, Master!" This was the happy greeting of Orpei who landed on Khalid's head. The pure-blood smiled brightly as it made him stop of such troubling possibilities. "Good morning, Orpei." The pink familiar playfully bit into his hair which Khalid found as a show of affection. "I wonder what would happen this time..." Orpei peeked down at his Master curiously. "Are you planning something, Master?" Taking hold of Orpei, he placed the familiar before him and smiled. "Nothing at all. It's a hassle to plan anything." The familiar tilted his head to the side and blinked a couple of times in curiosity. "I don't understand." Khalid patted Orpei's head gently. "Don't worry about it."

Orpei left it at that as he flew near his Master who had finally stood from the bed and went towards the location where the stashed supply of tomato juice could be found. Taking out a pack, he quickly took his fill. The precious feelings and the memories filled his consciousness with only the sense of Keilani. This blood was heaven and source of existence. Somehow, he was not completely against that. Once, he was done. He prepared himself for the night to come. It was during that time he took noticed at his night stand the hairclip which Daitokuji had used to pin his irritating bangs. Somehow, he had an inkling to have her noticed this annoying part of him. Perhaps, the girl would pin his hair again. If that was the case, he could start a collection of hairpins. This earned a small smile of his.

Leaving the said hairpin there, Khalid proceeded to exit his room. He had yet to see Inoue. Well, the vampire must have been where Daitokuji is. They seemed to be close friends despite the white-haired girl was showing. Somehow that made him feel a bit envious. Well, he had yet to have that kind of connection with anyone. It is true that he considers Inoue a friend but he hardly think it is to a point like with the two of them. Perhaps, someday he would find that person. This reminded him who was that stranger that he had seen yesterday. According to Inoue others had seen that figure, so he was not hallucinating. He wondered what that person meant by finally finding him.

Releasing a sigh, Orpei landed on his shoulder and queried on the condition of his Master. "Master, something wrong?" Khalid looked at the pink critter and smiled gently to assure Orpei that there was nothing wrong. "Everything is fine." Satisfied with that answer, Orpei beamed at his Master brightly. Soon, they reached the grand staircase where the other vampires were all waiting either for him or Inoue, whoever it is. They greeted him which he returned and that is when he felt. The same presence he felt that night. Looking to his side, he saw snow white hair. At first, he had wondered if it was Daitokuji but upon a second look, it was not her.

He had heard something from the others around him about a new student. A transfer student? Very peculiar in his opinion. But then again, what was peculiar was this feeling flooding him. It was uncanny familiarity and the sense of being in the trance of a dream. Orpei glared at the said newcomer with defiance. There was no way he would allow something so odd to come near his Master. This girl gave off a very weird scent and something was just off. It seemed he hated this person more than that Inoue guy. Glancing at his familiar, the pure-blood patted Orpei's head to calm it down. Afterwards, he looked at the girl. "I'm sorry about that. Orpei is just not fond of strangers." He then offered a polite smile and a greeting which should be in order from the beginning. "Welcome to Cross Academy. I am Khalid Tamesis. I hope you enjoy your stay here."

"I may not tolerate people that much, but when there is that someone willing to tolerate you, will you be able to save that person from me?"




Yukiko stared up at the darkening sky. She had opted to skip the rest of her classes since they were not doing much in them to begin with. Apparently, with the winter coming up so soon, and being in the month of October, the Student Council had proposed to do a Halloween themed event. The sound of the bells chimed through the air, piercing the delicate balance of subtle whispers. The sun was still hovering slightly in the air, but the clouds were already changing from the bright whites and grays to hints of pink and violets.

She always enjoyed the twilight times. The sky had always been interesting with it's colors, almost as if she were staring at a different painting each day. She could hear a rustling sound to her side and spotted Yamato trying to get Bibi off of his head. Apparently she had fallen asleep there and wasn't budging. She was comfortable and once Bibi was comfortable, she hardly moved. Yukiko knew this from personal experience. Bibi had entangled herself in Yukiko's locks once and had almost given Yukiko a stern lecture about bringing wildlife into the school building by one of the teachers. She had shrugged the teacher off though, telling him that there was nothing she could do about it. Which was true.

"You do know that it's pointless to try and remove her," she stated in a rather light tone, almost as if she were being affectionate. Yamato stared at the sudden change in demeanor and quirked an eyebrow. She shook her head, pointing to Bibi as Yamato sighed. He thought she was being nice to him for a change, but it was only directed to the bird. "Shouldn't you be joining your classmates right about now? They might miss seeing you and Tamesis-san together," she stated in a direct tone. It seemed that the Day class students often had this fantasy with the two pure-bloods, and it made Yukiko's stomach churn.

"They don't need me right now, besides," he stated, grinning down at Yukiko, "I am spending my time with you today," this earned him an annoyed look, but Yukiko didn't protest. She might not have been exactly too fond of the guy, but slowly, he was warming up to her. She allowed a small smile to tug at her lips as Yamato grinned. He managed to make her smile, that could be listed on his accomplishments. Now all he had to do was get her to laugh and open up to the others. Then they could see who she truly was. This thought in mind, he hadn't noticed that they were already walking along the bridge that connected the two Dormitories. "Aiko-chan? Can I hold your hand?" he stated in a rather childish manner.

"Thank you, Tamesis-san. You are very kind," the silver haired female spoke as she bowed to the pure-blood. "I already see a few things here that I will truly enjoy" she stated with a gentle smile. The meaning behind those words could not be discerned, however; she didn't miss the malicious look the pink familiar was giving her. It was a disgusting creature in her mind, un-befitting of the boy in front of her. He needed something different. A shade of red would suit him better. For now, she would stay by his side and destroy anything that would get in her way.

"My name is Kaiya. Kaiya Tsukumo at your service," she introduced herself, a mischievous gleam spreading through her eyes that went unnoticed. When the Night Class began to move, she stood behind him to his right side, standing closer than what was expected, appearing as if she were his right-hand. She could hear whispers behind her from the vampires who were slightly annoyed by this fact. She turned towards them, offering a rather sardonic grin to those who managed to see the flicker of crimson behind her eyes, however; they were not crimson. It was more of a violet color that clashed with her fuchsia colored eyes.

She turned her attention back to the blue-haired male in front of her. She had a second chance at making this right...for her. She would claim him like she had tried so many years ago. She wouldn't fail this time, no not this time she wouldn't. Before she could state something, fluttered whispers of something odd captured her interest. Apparently, off to the side, she spotted the other snow-white and another vampire to her side.

What truly caught her interest was their intertwined fingers. How odd this girl was. She had just moments ago told Kaiya not to touch her, but here she was holding the hands of a vampire no less. Was she with this particular vampire? She scoffed to herself at the thought. It didn't matter what this snow-white did, as long as she didn't interfere with her plans. Her eyes met those crimson gaze, and immediately her smile grew wider. The girl was glaring at her now.

"Yes," Yukiko found herself stating to the pure-blood, catching him off guard. He hadn't expected for her to let him, but quickly, his hand laced with hers. She was slowly opening up that barrier of hers and it was making him happy. Not only that, he wanted to see the reactions of those around him when he came walking with the Daitokuji pure-blood human at his side, holding his hand. Rumors had flown all over the campus that the two were more than just friends, however; no one ever denied it nor had they proved it. Yamato played with the notion a few times, but the girl was just his friend. He had his eyes on someone else, who barely even knew he existed.

Yukiko had ignored the stares and whispers around her as she walked with Yamato. She didn't understand why she agreed to hold his hand in the first place. It was an intimate gesture and suggested things about the two that were false. Not that it mattered to her what they thought of the situation, she was just holding someone's hand. It meant nothing to her really. All of these thoughts were pushed to the side when Yukiko spotted her. Unconsciously, she gripped Yamato's hand tighter, causing the boy to wince until he followed her gaze. He spotted the silver-haired vampire that the school was in a ruckus about.

The close proximity to Khalid, however; seemed a bit conspicuous, but it wasn't uncommon. All the students seemed to be drawn to the blue-haired vampire (with the exception of Yukiko of course because she didn't care for things like that) and it made Yamato slightly envious. If he could attract people like that, he might finally get the one vampiress to finally notice his existence. He sighed, as Yukiko released his hand. It was a sudden movement as he blinked down at her. Her gaze seemed to have moved from the silver-haired female to Khalid again.

"Why did he remove the clip?" she stated in a rather disappointed tone. She hadn't found his bangs as irritating when they were pulled back, but now she didn't have a clip on her being to sweep them back again. Yamato chuckled at the sudden statement. Instead of being worried about anything else, she was wondering why Tamesis removed the clip. He noticed the disappointed look in her eyes and laughed lightly. "Yamato, stop laughing it's not funny. It's irritating," she stated with a frown. Yamato glided away from Yukiko before she could make him stop and was soon by Khalid's side.

"It seems Aiko-chan has grown irritated with your bangs again, Tamesis-san," he stated in a fond tone. He turned his attention towards the silver-haired female and offered her a charming smile, one that was followed in return by a gentle one by the girl. "So you are the new addition to this school. I am Inoue Yamato, but you can call me Yamato," he greeted. Kaiya smiled and introduced herself to the other pure-blood. It seems that he was rather close to the blue-haired vampire as well.

She would have to do something about that. She would be the only one to be close to the blue-haired male. She was brought out of her thoughts when snow-white approached the group of vampires. Kaiya blinked at the audacity this girl had to do such as she was now pulling at Khalid's bangs. It was almost as if she were searching for something, however; the fact that snow-white was touching him had her glaring at the girl.

"Well, such a hypocrite," Kaiya stated as Yukiko directed her attention away from Khalid. She was going to inquire about the hair clip when Kaiya spoke to her. Yukiko furrowed her brows as she stared at the girl. "You don't like being touched, but yet here you were, holding Inoue's hand and now touching Tamesis-san's hair. Isn't that a bit rude," Kaiya stated in a rather innocent, yet malicious tone that could only be heard if one strained their ears long enough. Yukiko was now fully focused on the silver haired girl that seemed to be the fuss of everyone at school.

"I said to not touch without my permission. If that makes me a hypocrite, well then I suppose I am, but that means nothing to me. You, on the other hand, are disgusting. Everything about you is displeasing and I do not understand why these idiots over here are making such a fuss about you," Yukiko replied. This only served to anger the girl more, and she wanted nothing more than to tear Yukiko apart, make her beg for forgiveness, however; she played the part of a hurt person. She placed a hand over her heart and had forced tears into her eyes. Yukiko merely rolled her eyes as she walked away. "Two irritating presences are not worth the time nor effort right now," she threw over her shoulder.

Yamato merely blinked at what just happened. He knew Yukiko could be harsh in words, but he never expected for something to crawl underneath her skin as much to cause her to do that. He sighed as he noticed the walls being built back up around her. He had just managed to knock a piece down, but every time it seemed that five more pieces would appear in its' spot. "I've never seen Yukiko this upset about anything," Yamato mused as he began to follow the Night Class to the Academy. Where were he prefects though? Shouldn't they have been here to help defuse the situation? Regardless, he was just glad it hadn't escalated any further than what it could have. His gaze followed after Yukiko and he couldn't help but notice the slight dark cloud hovering above her.

Something was definitely not right here.

"Mysterious things do happen whether one can utilize it as beneficial or not, is something everyone has to learn by themselves. As for me, I think I already know."




As it comes natural to him, Khalid gave the newcomer now known to him as Kaiya Tsukumo a polite and kind smile. "It is nice to meet you Tsukumo-san." He then pointed at his familiar who was still glaring daggers at Tsukumo. "This is Orpei." The said familiar looked away in a haughty manner. There is no way he would be all chummy with that girl. She was fishy and that is that. In response, the pure-blood shook his head in dismay. "He is nice once you get to know him. It just takes quite some time before he warms up." To show this and also to have Orpei be more at ease, he rubbed the spot behind the pink rabbit's ear who eventually leaned to his touch with pleasure. This made Khalid smile gently and then looked at Tsukumo. "I'm glad you have found things that you enjoy here."

With that said, the pure-blood then looked around him as the vampires were still waiting for him. If he could literally sweat-dropped just like those in cartoons, he would have already. Really, he does not understand why they do such things. There was really not a need to but then again, it would be a useless argument. So might as well resign to it, "Let's go everyone." It was then the Night Class Parade began once more. Upon reaching the outer gates, he could hear a large crowd beyond the walls. It made him wonder if there was a particular event in motioned. Usually, it was like that such as Valentine's Day chocolates and the other festivities.

Once the gates were opened, the Day Class were there with such endeavor. In truth, Khalid was not sure what makes them so appealing to the humans. Is it because of their looks? Isn't that a bit shallow? In any case, it seemed the humans were bolder than usual. They were screaming the names of they liked and adored. He could even hear the title they had given him so lightly, Prince. Despite hearing it a lot of times, he could still not get what made him a prince. But as long it makes them happy, then that is fine. Although, it was quite rowdy which prompted the other vampires to tighten the so-called perimeter around him. This made him wonder where are the prefects. Were they running late again? Hopefully, nothing bad happened to them.

Orpei was more vigilant than ever especially towards the new student who was awfully too close to his Master. This person was more dangerous than the Day Class students combined. Why was she walking and standing beside his Master as if she belonged there? This girl was just too assuming or pinning for his Master like the others. Yes, this girl was a threat. But then again, he took a whiff of another person he despised getting too close to his Master, the other pure-blood Inoue Yamato. Then, there was the girl who tried to crash him with a death hug. Although, he was not the only one who notice for Khalid did too.

Inoue approaches the blue pure-blood while stating that Aiko was irritated with his bangs again. Absentmindedly, Khalid reached for the offending bangs. "Oh..." That was all he said with an apologetic smile as he dropped his hand to his side once more. Inoue took interest to the newcomer and he seemed aware of it unlike Khalid. "This is Tsukumo Kaiya-san." The pure-blood took the lead in the introduction when he felt someone touching his hair. There was no need to guess as there was only one possibility. It was Daitokuji who was rummaging through his hair. Her desire would probably be the hair clip which he had left in his room.

This pure-blood turned human never ceased to fascinate him. A small smile made way to his lips. However, it seemed that Tsukumo and Daitokuji knew each other prior to this time. Hostility, he could sense that at the exchange of words between the girls. He had heard of Daitokuji's sharp tongue from the rumors and from Inoue as well. Yet, he has yet to witness it firsthand which had now happened now. She really does not know how to mince her words. He looked over Tsukumo who was hurt which even made her cry. One of his weakness, tears. It had always been like that. He faced Tsukumo. "Please don't let it bother you, Tsukumo-san." Then, his hand reached for her face as he wiped the tears that formed underneath her eyes gently.

"Smiling suits you more." After stating that, Khalid removed his hand from her face and then looked at the direction where Daitokuji disappeared to. "I hope you don't think badly of Daitokuji-san. She is a nice person." It was then he heard what Inoue noted. He unconsciously reached for his bangs again. "Perhaps, I should have let that hair clip stay on my hair." Releasing a sigh, he went ahead into the academy with Inoue and the other vampires. It was once again time for the Night Class and that what happened as the doors of the main building closed behind them. No one knew, that this was going to be a session never to be forgotten.

"I don't understand these feelings sometimes, but even so, I cannot help but enjoy them because, the last time you'll feel them is when I rip them out of your heart"




"You are truly too kind Tamesis-san, but I fear you are incorrect about Daitokuji-san. She doesn't appear to have a warmth in that heart of hers. I fear it may be frozen," Kaiya replied as she cherished his touch, wanting to feel more of it against her skin. She kept these thoughts to herself though as he had spoken about snow-white as if he had personally known her. The way he had smiled after the girl had touched his bangs had stirred something inside Kaiya. It wasn't anger, but something similar to it. Jealousy? Perhaps, but for now, she would regain his attention to her. She didn't like the way he had touched his bangs when he mentioned leaving the clip there. So, the girl was annoyed by his bangs and even placed a clip there. Well, that wouldn't do, not for her prince.

"I do not see a problem with your bangs. They are nice and symbolize love in a way. No matter how much you try to separate them, they will always return to each other, so why keep them apart in the first place?" she stated, smiling up at the blue-haired male. She had meant something entirely different by that. Although she felt love, she couldn't be capable of it. This was something she didn't know. All she knew was that she wanted this vampire. She wanted to bend him, break him, have him at the whim of her mercy as she did so many years ago. A twisted smile appeared on her face as she thought of the fond memories, however; to anyone paying attention, they would have regarded it as a warm smile towards their blue-haired prince. "You'll be mine again," the statement came out as such a low whisper, not even the increased ability of the vampires could pick it up, however...

"I don't think she was upset about your bangs Tamesis-san so don't worry about it. I am sure she'll be okay," he stated as he had watched the events unfold. Truly, something else was bothering his friend and he couldn't understand what it was. Bibi had flown out from her perch moments before they entered the Academy and he knew her destination. His eyes fixed on the silver-haired girl as she smiled up at Khalid. He had just wiped away her tears and told her to smile. She had said something that caught the pure-blood of guard, although Yamato wasn't sure if anyone else had heard it. The words were so softly spoken that even he had a hard time catching them. He shook the thoughts from his mind as he turned his attention towards Kaiya.

"Her heart isn't frozen Tsukumo-san. She just needs someone to kick-start it for her. If you listen closely, you can hear it beating softly. I tried, but I don't think I am the one to do so," he replied to her first statement. It was true. He had managed to befriend her, so that was proof that she didn't have a frozen heart. It just needed someone to warm it up, however; he couldn't be that person. Not that he didn't want to, but not in the way that she would need it. He sighed as the gates to the Academy closed and they entered the premises.

Yukiko couldn't shake the silver-haired girl from her mind. Kaiya had managed to crawl under her skin and Yukiko didn't like it. She couldn't understand why those words Kaiya had spoken seemed to irritate her so much. Actually, everything about the girl irritated Yukiko so much that she had laughed at herself for it. Sure there were things that managed to get under Yukiko's skin, but she had always managed to deal with it in one way or another. This feeling she received from Kaiya was a foreign, yet familiar feeling. Why was that? She didn't know the girl nor did she want to get to know her. But the feelings that bubbled up within the hole of her chest caused a sense of familiarity that Yukiko couldn't shake.

"Kiko-chan!" Bibi shouted as she flew happily in Yukiko's hair. This caused a smile to appear on the white-haired girl's lips as she rubbed the bird affectionately. "That scary girl is in class with Yama-chan. I am worried about him," she stated as Yukiko only smiled down at the bird. It was interesting the relationship between the familiar and her master was. Yukiko knew that Bibi didn't like Yamato much, but the bird still loved him regardless. She couldn't understand why the familiar was afraid of Kaiya though. The girl was a bit on the short side, maybe an inch or so shorter than Yukiko, and there was nothing frightening about her at all.

"I am sure he can take care of himself Bibi. We have nothing to worry about from him," she found herself stating as she tried to comfort the bird. In a way, somehow, she was slightly worried. Maybe because it was rolling off in waves from the bird, but something deep inside told her otherwise. She tried to shake the thoughts but they still lingered. Another thing that, for some odd reason, bothered her was the fact that Kaiya was in such a close proximity of the blue-haired vampire. Not that she cared, but for some odd reason, it irritated her. Yukiko let out an exasperated sigh as she laid on her back, staring up at the starry sky from the grass hill. She was just being overly defensive. That had to be it. Even though the bangs irritated her, there was hardly anything else that irritated her from the blue-haired vampire. Well, maybe the way people flocked to him, but that was natural in the the vampire hierarchy. Nobles were always going to try and get on the side of a pure-blood. She had witnessed that with Yamato when he was the only pure-blood attending the school.

"Yukiko! Yamato is in trouble!" Bibi suddenly shouted as she flapped around wildly. Yukiko felt something, a heartbeat skipping, or something similar as she quickly stood up. Why did that seem to bother her? Wait, why was he in trouble and why were her legs running at such a speed she hadn't quite known she possessed?

Yamato had been leaning in his chair, ignoring the teacher once again as he found the outside a little more interesting. The days events were still playing through his mind and he couldn't help but feel slightly worried. There was an odd chill in the air and he couldn't place it. Much like Yukiko, he had tried to pierce the veil of Kaiya's mind, but found himself unable to do so. The feeling was similar to Yukiko's, and he couldn't discern why it was so. He glanced at the silver-haired female, sitting so closely to Khalid. It wasn't uncommon that vampires were often vying for the blue-haired vampires affections, but this girl had just transferred. That's when he noticed something odd about her. She was emitting an aura that seemed to radiate a deep violet color with flashes of crimson.

"Khalid, you are mine," Kaiya stated as the room seemed to darken. She had stated this rather unexpectedly, and it was stated with such conviction that she wasn't going to take no for an answer. She didn't want to wait any longer. She had to make him hers now or else. Yamato was the first to stand at the sudden expression of the female before she waved a hand at him. "You will not be allowed to be close to this one. He is my Prince and I have been searching for him for a very long time," she stated as Yamato seemed frozen in his place. He struggled against the invisible shackles but found himself unable to break free. Others, alarmed or worried for their blue-haired vampire, stood quickly to assist.

"Do you see how quickly they fly to your aid? You could be ruling them, making them do whatever it is that pleases you," she spoke as she flicked her wrist again, causing some of the vampires to disperse and fly across the room. "You are an interference, sleep," she stated as she watched the vampires in the room fall under her spell. Their eyes rolled back into their heads as they fell upon the marbled floors. Yamato fell under the spell as well, calling out to Bibi before his world went black. "I can give you this power. All you need to do is say yes and be mine," she stated as she traced a delicate finger across the pure-bloods face. Before she could hear his response, she felt a searing pain in her wrist as she glanced at the one grabbing a hold of it. Crimson met Fuchsia and anger shone brightly behind the darkened red eyes.

"I do not appreciate you touching my friends that way," Yukiko stated as she glared at the silver-haired female in front of her. Her grip on Kaiya's wrist tightened substantially, causing something to snap as Kaiya winced slightly. Where was this strength coming from? Surely she couldn't possess such a thing, the girl was only human. She didn't miss the flash of vermilion mixing with the crimson as Kaiya removed herself from Yukiko's grasp. Was that a play of the eyes? An illusion? There was no way snow-white could be a vampire. She would have known if she were. Although snow-white had been a vampire at one time, that side of her was suppressed thanks to her mother. She was just a normal human now. So where was this strength coming from?

Yukiko glanced around and spotted Yamato on the floor. His eyes were shut as if he were in a painful nightmare, only serving to further anger Yukiko. "And I do not appreciate you attacking my friend either," Yukiko stated, ignoring everything else around her as she felt a malevolent aura circling around her. The crimson shade of her eyes only brightened more. Kaiya hissed at the force as she fixed her wrist. She had a dislocated wrist thanks to the pressure Yukiko had grabbed it with.

"Stupid girl, you shouldn't have interfered!" Kaiya shouted as she shrouded herself in a black shadow, disappearing in the darkness. The anger still swirled within Yukiko as she felt a slight wave of dizziness overcome her. She was still human after all and the events that just took place, the excerpt of her suppressed vampiric abilities caused a weariness in her being. She placed a hand on her forehead, trying to keep her vision from doubling. She over did it, but she was angry. She knew this was because of that stupid friend of hers. She hadn't known why she reacted the way she did, but what was done was done. She turned to Khalid, those stupid bangs of his still there in their annoying fixture.

"I told you she was irritating," were the only words that slipped through Yukiko's mouth as she collapsed on the floor, darkness taking over her world for the time being from using too much too quickly. The last thing she heard was the sound of Bibi's voice calling out to her, and the last thought running through her head was Where are the prefects?

"They say that tragedies are nothing more but boundless amount of opportunities. So, what do we call this undefinable moment in which I should reach out to you or not?"




So distinctive. Her scent. Her voice. It was like something deep in his subconsciousness was trying to remind him. There was something oddly familiar about this new student who has the same snow-white tresses. Normally if someone is faintly known to you, a person becomes a bit relax but rather it made him a bit wary. Orpei seemed to share this cautious feeling but on a greater scale. It was because the pink fuzzball had yet to stop glaring at Tsukumo. Even more so when the pure-blood reached out to wipe those tears away. Instinctively, Orpei bit Khalid's earlobe but not enough to break skin. But, his Master was too kind for his own good. As a result, it causes unnecessary troubles.

Saying he was kind, it was something that he did not expect to be praised about. Although, many had already said this about him. There are his grandparents, parents, sister, Orpei, Inoue, and the others. Yet in the end, he was simply doing things as he intended to do on his own will. Doesn't everyone do that as well? So, what was amazing about his actions? He could never understand such things sometimes. In any case, he could tell much that the feelings of dislike were mutual for Tsukumo and Daitokuji. He hoped it would not escalate any other than banter of words. Conflict and hatred would only cause further suffering on both parties.

Whatever it may be, he had decided to speak in defense of the pure-blood turned human. However, Inoue had beaten him to the punch. Supporting it, he patted Orpei's head who felt uneasy with the presence of Tsukumo and Inoue nearby. It was not a secret that his familiar disliked the two. However, the pink critter dislikes everyone mostly. "I agree with Inoue-san. No heart is frozen, Tsukumo-san. If it truly was, Daitokuji-san would be dead in every sense. The facts she gets irritated and smiles about cute things goes to show she cares." He ended these words with a warm smile as he continued to walk along the hallways of the main building. Orpei seemed in a good mood as he leaned to his Master's touch who continued to gently pat him.

The next words that Tsukumo released caused the blue pure-blood to have his eyes widened subtly in surprise. It was not because of the meaning but how it was spoken. These words held a certain sense of nostalgia to him. It made him wonder if he had heard them before from somewhere or even from someone. However, he came up with nothing. Well, his bangs were the one thing that made Daitokuji noticed him. As such, he did not see anything wrong from it. Would it be wrong for him to use something such as his bangs to get to know the infamous Ice Queen? Regardless, he offered a small yet sweet smile to Tsukumo. In the end, he was grateful for her words saying that there was nothing wrong with his bangs. "Thank you, Tsukumo-san."

Vampires around them swooned at such a smile and felt envious of the newcomer who was already attaching herself to the Prince. Khalid without a doubt was the topic of many fantasies and known to few a peculiar pairing of him and Inoue. If the two pure-blood would hear about it, their reaction would be firsthand laughter. Well, he was rather oblivious to such things or perhaps, he simply chose to have it all fell on deaf ears. Whatever the case maybe, he was definitely very popular both for the Day and Night Classes.

As for the said pure-blood, Khalid proceeded walking in silence. It was then a noble vampire inquired something to him regarding about a broken laptop and also the next project for the gardening club which he actively participates in. This resulted in him completely missing the ghost-like declaration of Tsukumo towards him. If he had heard, he might finally connect the ephemeral vision of that person to the newcomer as one entity. But, it was not meant to be for now. Soon, they all reached their classroom and started yet another session much like that of senators.

Truly, it was rather boring which he could not blame Inoue for taking interest on another matter which was looking out the window. As for him, he had opened the bag of sweets and allowed Orpei to munch on it freely. Speaking of which, he had received earlier the bill for the treats which Nightless had given to him yesterday. It made him wonder what happened with the prefects. He had yet to see anyone of them. Did something happened? If that was so, the Headmaster would have informed the Night Class at the very least or there would be another means of security. Hopefully, the two prefects were fine wherever they may be right now.

His line of thoughts slowly shifted on the blank paper before him. The lecture of their teacher served as mere background noise as he wondered what to say on the letter for Keilani. If he did not send one, his sister without doubt would throw a fit like none other. Well, he does hope that his sister is doing fine. Last time, he had heard. Keilani was attending an exclusive all-girl's school. His sister wanted to attend Cross Academy too but their grandparents dissuaded it. Reasons? He was not really keen on that as long as their best interests were put at the top of each decision, he would not question.

"Master, why is this girl sitting close to you?" Raising his eyes to look at Orpei and to the girl he was pertaining to, it was none other than Tsukumo. Well, he was not sure either but there was nothing wrong with it from his perspective. "It's a vacant seat." This made the pink critter pout so adorably but before a retort could be given to Khalid. Tsukumo declared a statement with conviction as the room was filled with a dark presence. He was not certain how to react as Orpei immediately hissed at Tsukumo. In his defense, Inoue rush to aid him but it was futile as this girl was able to stop him with a wave of a hand. "Inoue-san!" He called out to the other pure-blood.

However, Khalid was not able to do anything further than that. He was frozen as well as if numerous chains enveloped him with such strength. He could not move at all. His sky blue eyes looked at those fuchsia ones. She stated something about a prince and searching for him. What was happening here? Orpei noticed his Master caught in paralysis and tried to attack Tsukumo. "Orpei, don't!" But, it was too late along with the other vampires who rallied to help. Orpei was flung like a fly to the other side of the room. After doing so, Tsukumo did away with the rest by making them all fall to the floor.

"Inoue-san! Orpei Everyone!" Khalid called out with worry as he looked at Tsukumo in disbelief and relative annoyance. "What did you do to them?!" Those blue eyes of his darkened ever so slightly as he tried to fight whatever spell that kept him immobilize. Instead of answering him, she stated about giving these powers to him. All he had to was to be hers. He had no need for such things but if it would save everyone then, he would... But before he could say anything else, Daitokuji appeared. "Daitokuji-san?"

Soon, Tsukumo left with the cover of the shadows. The spell that held him in place was released as he moved forward slightly. He looked at Daitokuji with curiosity. It seemed she was able to tap to her vampiric powers despite being human. But, he had no time to dwell on such matters as she turned to him. She seemed weakened from the ordeal but still found a way to state that Tsukumo was irritating. "Daitokuji-san!" He called out to her as he managed to catch her in time. Checking on her vitals, Khalid released a sigh of relief. She was just unconscious probably tired from the toll her human body took.

He then looked around him. Everyone was harmed and it was because of him. Inoue and even Orpei were no exceptions. Who was Tsukumo really? Anyway, he needed to make sure everyone will be safe. Where are the prefects when needed them? He definitely needed them now. Cradling Daitokuji in his arms, he called out to Bibi. "If it would be fine, could you check on Inoue-san and the others if they are okay?" After asking that favor, he went to where Orpei is. "Orpei..." The pink critter laid on the floor unconscious but slowly stirred as he opened his eyes and looked at his Master. "Master...?" Khalid was thankful that Orpei seemed to be fine as the familiar managed to hover and perch on his shoulder. "Hang on there..." Orpei nodded and lost consciousness once more.

"Something troublesome is one thing. The other things is, if I don't help them, I do be a very bad bastard."





Not mentioning that it would be amusing to see Sera in bunny cosplay, he nodded as she said she wanted to go the next morning, already. It was very irritating and he felt a bit disappointed as she wanted to leave. God, Saken, not like she will be gone forever. He was very sick of himself and tried to chase away those thoughts.

"Hey Saken. Just don't do anything reckless."

"Well, like always I guess?" He said grinning - because he gradually was always in thought not to get into any kinds of troubles - but she just had that frown on her face - not giving back her usual playful smile - what made him wonder. Was she really that worried about him? He himself couldn't think that, her always teasing him, but his grin disappeared, and with that, Sera the next morning.

Yes, he did not really have any intentions to go to school that day. But still, someone had to protect the day class students from those vampires, and currently it's himself only. He sighed and crawled out of his comfortable bed. Not like he is incompetent without Sera.

“Morning Sakkun! God, you finally show your butt today! You hear there is a transfer student today? That bitch steals me the whole show!” The first thing was Natasha, who came running to him, having a pouting face. A transfer student? In this time?, indeed, Saken was very wondering about that situation, but Natasha did not lie to him this time, he could see it if she lies. And this one, she couldn’t lie just seeing her pouting face.

“Transfer student? Really?” He asked surprised, seeing other students busy to talk with themselves, all about that beautiful, white haired girl who just had transferred… - wait. White haired? Was that a coincidence? ”Wears a black uniform I suppose?”

Natasha rolled her eyes. ”What else, dummy. It’s really an insult that they didn’t give me that uniform!” She said and Saken decided to pat her head to calm her down.

”Calm down Natasha. I gotta go doing my duties now because Sera isn’t here. It will be probably the most troublesome day today, so I hope that that transfer student didn’t make much fuss.” But that wish of his shouldn’t come true.

But Natasha calmed down, more because Sera’s absence as the pat he had given her. ”Okay okay, but do not forget me and let me eat by myself again today!” She said and walked away. Womans, really. Saken shook his head, not going to understand the woman’s heart at all and went to do his duties.

The parade was more troublesome than before. And at that time too, she saw that white- haired girl, seem to have already took a liking to that blue- haired vampire. But he could not spend the whole time looking at her because she was busy to push away the girls – and the boys. For real? Did they want me to get their ass kicked? “Give some place for them damn it. Or you want to be familiar with my sword? And let me tell you this: I have permission to strike as a prefect.” Well, that was a big fat lie, but it worked. They went away, like always whispering with themselves. “Pfft, a girly man speaked!” And although they said that, they did not have any courage to confront him. Truly pathethic. With a sneer, they completely were gone and so the parade. They all went to their classes. It's time for his patrol. He sighed and went to the patrol like a good prefect should. Well, better then baby sitting. He already played with the thoughts to ditch the baby sitting part and didn't went to the vampire class, as a shiver went through his body. "Wha-" Truly, he was not a hunter like Sera and could presence a vampire just like that, but he could feel something... familar. Something he felt before, as his uncle was killed just in front of him. Fear. But of what? He looked around, didn't see anything, but then his glance rested on one of the classes, which light was a bit dim. Very strange. It was a condition where he couldn't choose to run away from troublesome things. Something in his heart had give him a push to check it out. That feeling was not a coincidence. And he did all this just to find out what that was, isn't that right?

He rushed to that classroom, already seeing the first oddity from far: The door was open. The lesson should already have been started! What the hell is happening there? As he neared the classroom, he saw the sight that was very shocking: Everyone down and just the blue- haired vampire on his feets and as he looked down, he saw that white- haired girl turned to human, who shouldn't belong to this classroom. Just that carnary seem to trying waking her up.

From the situation, it was obvious for Saken to blame the blue haired vampire in this matter. But hearing him over his own familar having that worried and quite shocked face, he couldn't blame him - for now. Before the question that he had been wanting to ask about this whole crazy situation, he put out some herbs - a usual item that someone born into a traditional family - and started to treat the nearest one to him - the white haired girl. "Calm down Bibi. She is just unconscious. With this herb, she'll be up again after some hours of rest. I guess it is for all of you -" Then his glance rested on Khalid, wondering if he should trust him in the matter because Sera isn't there and everyone had to be carried to the infirmary this once.

Finally, he made his decision. "Hey, you blue haired vampire, catch!" He throwed the herb to him and gave him orders: "Give everyone of your friends one small piece of herb - if you really are their friends - and meanwhile, I am going to catch some help who are willing to help me carry them to the infirmary. If you still care about them, I suppose you should follow my orders. And after that... you have to be ready to be questioned." He stated, not really willingly to leave him like that. But he did. "Well I carry her to the infirmary, may I?" But he already took away the white haired girl from the arms of Khalid and carried her, Bibi on top of her. He rushed to the infirmary, didn't want to leave too long, letting Khalid alone.

He finally managed to get to the infirmary and lay the white haired girl down on the infirmary bed. Now he finally could congratulate himself seeing Bibi from near. It was a small amusement in this whole mess, but he enjoyed it. "Take good care of her, alright?" He finally said after awhile staring at Bibi and left the infirmary, catching with some teachers whom know the existence of the vampires and walked with 3 of them to the class, very worried that the blue haired boy did do what he told him to do - or was the culprit himself and he, Saken, gave him time to flee. And if that was the case, he would never forgive himself trusting a vampire. Ever.

"Just because I'm out, it does not mean you can do anything to this place I call home."




"Miss... Miss... Miss... Hey!"

Eyes that reflected the endless autumn opened abruptly. It held a sharp look and a promise of pain while Sera grabbed the wrist of the hand which was about to touch her. The driver had a frightened look as this girl was thoroughly trying to break his wrist. He even tried to pull away but the girl's grip was too strong for him. "We-- We--'re here..." The cabbie explained and was even stuttering as he could feel that his muscle would soon give way from the pressure. He was just trying to wake up his passenger but when calling out did not work. The next option was to shake her and what did he get? Sera who was finally released from the haze of sleep immediately let go of the driver's hand. "I am so sorry! It's an instinct! I'm so sorry!" Actually, the driver wanted to complain but if that was done out of instinct. This girl was scary if she was even more aware. So, the older man just massaged the hurt wrist and nodded in fear.

She was really sorry about what happened. As compensation, she paid more than the fare. It was far better than having to send the man to a hospital for a broken wrist. Sera could already imagine her father scolding her intently and lecturing her about control. Unfortunately for her, she looked at the contents of his coin purse and nothing was left even a lint. It was official she was broke and her allowance won't be coming till the end of the month. This was a disaster. Well, she could just leech of Saken until then. Finally reaching the top of the stairs, she entered the main gates and noticed how quiet it was.

There was nothing to be concerned about it since this is usual during this time. Taking out her phone, she looked at the time. It was just a quarter before 3. The Night Class should be wrapping things up on their end. Those guys were probably returning to their dormitory proper. Well, it would not be bad to drop in and check if everything was A-okay. She might see Saken as well and tell him she's back and all. But as she was just but a few meters away from the main gates, she felt something dangerous and the hairs at back of her neck stood. On reflex, she quickly yet had a bit of hesitation as she pulled Apollo out from the holder around her thigh and then extended it to a normal size rod.

"Stop it right there!" Sera announced as she managed to point it dangerously near the threat's neck which has snow-white hair. Wait, snow white? As she observed, this person was a girl and wearing the night class uniform. A student here? But, she knew all the vampires attending the academy. So, she is a newcomer? She didn't hear about it. Looking at the girl intently, she somewhat resembled Yukiko to a degree. Is she a relative? But then again, the dangerous presence from this stranger will not subside. That was enough for her to be on guard as her eyes narrowed in warning. "Identify yourself and state your purpose." The usual playfulness and coyness present in her voice were gone. Sera was clearly not only on prefect mode but she was also a hunter.

The next thing that Sera knew was the girl waving her hand and then the prefect felt an invisible force knocking her through the air. "Apollo longer!" With that command, Apollo extended and implanted itself on the concrete which prevented her being thrown like some beach volleyball. She then used this momentum to circle around the rod and do a triple loop on the air as she landed on top of the culprit. "Got ya! Now, be a good girl before---" She was not able to continue as the said girl underneath her became nothing more but a puddle of water. "Eh?!" This was definitely not her day. She quickly stood and tried to pick up by her senses if the girl was completely gone. There was not a trace. Clicking her tongue, she had Apollo returned to its normal length as she went to retrieve it.

Her next concern the Night Class. Judging by the uniform, the girl was part of it. She then ran towards the main building with her weapon in tow. She only hoped that everyone was fine and especially her partner. If something happened, she would never be able to forgive herself for being late. She finally reached the classroom and her eyes widened from the scene. Everyone was out of cold. It was her observation as she could not smell the metallic scent of blood. Was this done by that girl? Who was she exactly to overpower everyone including two pure-bloods.

"Tamesis-kun!" Sera called out to the only vampire on his feet. The usual question would be what happened here but for her. "Is that Saken's?" She identified the herbs and then looked around. "You'll explain to me in detail later what occurred here." There was no room for arguments as she proceeded to check on the others through their vitals while returning Apollo to its holder. They seemed to be knocked unconscious but from their expressions, mental hallucinations, the worse kind. "Tamesis-kun feed those herb to him, her, that and them." She pointed out effectively to whom the herb would be effective. As for the others, the herb would be useless as they were overtaken by the nightmares of their heads. She would have to use a spell and some special medicine from her hunter supplies.

Once, the pure-blood was done with what she instructed. She went to him and looked at pink familiar's condition. It seemed Orpei was hurt and needed medical attention. Her eyes then went to the other pure-blood to whom the herb would not be effective. "Help me here." She said as she pulled Yamato up and placed an arm over her shoulder. "The others should wake up a bit later due to the herb. For the others, Saken should be coming back for some help to carry others." She put up a small smile to comfort the blue vampire. "They'll be fine, Tamesis-kun. Let's get this grunt over to the infirmary first." Whether they finally moved or what. This night was truly a mystery to all.

"Maybe it won't be so bad to let someone in, give them the chance to be my friend but if you do, make sure to keep a watchful gaze on them for they could be swept away by a current."




Was she floating? All she could feel slipping through her fingers was air. She had to be floating, otherwise the only other conclusion would be that someone was carrying her. How could that be? Didn't she say for Inoue to not carry her? But something felt different. It wasn't Inoue carrying her. The arms were much more delicate in their hold. Then, she felt herself gliding to another set. She was being passed around to different arms. She would have spoken something to the people that were carrying her, but she couldn't speak. Darkness was all she could see. Was she blind?

You are unconscious, a voice whispered in the back of her mind. Well that explained the darkness and the feeling of floating. She recalled what had happened moments before she passed out. Kaiya had been speaking to the Tamesis pure-blood. She didn't know exactly what the silver-haired girl was saying, but by the look on the pure-blood's face, it wasn't good. Yukiko had managed, somehow, to make the girl disappear. She hadn't exactly remembered that little fact, but the fatigue coursing through her body gave her an idea somewhat. She must have exerted the suppressed abilities. Normally, those abilities would have been sealed along with her vampire side, but for Yukiko, at a price, could temporarily use them. If she released too much too quickly, she risked going into a coma of sorts.

The abilities put a great strain on her body since she was only human, hence why she was currently unconscious. She could feel something being given to her, but she reacted a bit differently to it. She spit it out. The feeling of something soft then encompassed her body. Where was she now? She could hear the soft humming of Bibi and the light weight on her chest from the canary. She tried to open her eyes, but her body refused to comply to her demands. She released a heavy breath, stirring Bibi from her perch as Bibi stared at the snow-haired girl on the bed. Bibi had witnessed the change in demeanor of the white-haired girl and this had frightened her slightly. She had never seen Yukiko so angry with someone, not even her master or any other students.

Bibi sighed as she continued to watch over Yukiko. Her master was fine, just unconscious like Yukiko was, however; she couldn't help but feel the similar aura radiating from Yukiko as the one that radiated from the silver-haired fuchsia-eyed female. Was it because the girl managed to push it onto Yukiko? Or was there something else that the familiar hadn't known? Whatever the reason, the aura slowly dissipated from the snow-haired girl. She shook her head in agreement when Saken told her to look over Yukiko. She could do that since her master was currently unable to. Then again, she would have tried to have defended Khalid since the prefect seemed to think it was the blue-haired vampires fault. It wasn't, he was the just caught in the cross-fire.

Aiko-chan, I hope you're okay, the bird thought as she fluttered from her spot and landed ontop of the poles as a nurse came by. She checked on Yukiko, and was startled when crimson eyes stared back at her. She stuttered before she asked Yukiko if she was fine. The only response the snow-haired girl gave was a quick glance before standing up and walking out of the infirmary, Bibi right behind her. That explained where she was, in the infirmary. How she got there remained a mystery to her for now, and she wasn't about to ask. The sound of her name being called caused Yukiko to stop in her tracks as she spotted Bibi flying after her. She grasped the bird gently as Bibi landed in her hand. She could still feel the fatigue coursing through her body, but it wasn't as intense as it had been before. She just wanted to get out of the infirmary. There was no need for her to be in there since she was fine.

"Bibi, how is Yamato-san and the others?" she found herself asking, confusion laced in her voice at the same time. She was inquiring the health of the others, not just Yamato, and this caused the small bird to inwardly smile since she couldn't physically smile. Yukiko did not notice the strange sparkle behind the black eyes as Bibi informed her that the Night Class was fine. They were just rendered unconscious although a few of them might have been slightly hurt due to the force Kaiya had used to knock them back. But even so, their bodies should have already kick-started to regenerate any physical injuries. Yukiko frowned to herself and was brought out of her thoughts by Bibi who rubbed against her cheek.

But there was this odd sensation in the back of her mind that there was something more to it. She needed to return to the Night Class. It seemed that there was something that was compelling her to go back. It was a good thing they were still in the Academy and not in the dormitories. She made her way at an even pace, trying not to over exert herself again and soon, she arrived back at the scene. She spotted Serafine talking to Tamesis and giving him directions to the vampires that would probably benefit more from the strange herb that she had spit out moments before. It was a subconscious gesture and one that she hadn't meant to do since the herb was given to her out of a good intent. She noticed some of the vampires were trembling a bit, almost as if their minds were clouded by a darkness that wouldn't be lifted any time soon. Serafine mentioned something about Saken returning soon, however; it appears as if he was still probably gathering teachers. If Yukiko did something first, then it would null the involvement of the teachers and the Night Class would be fine. Although if she did, there was a great risk to herself for suggesting such a thing, but that hardly mattered at the moment.

"Give them my blood. It'll help them," her voice pierced the air as she approached the two. She wasn't sure why, but she pointed to the vampires that were on the floor with the dark clouds hovering above them. Her blood would at least help them recover from that nightmare. Her father had pointed out that little detail to her one day. Whether it was because he himself had been trapped like that or not, he never disclosed with her. Why was she so concerned about helping them in the first place? Because they need your help, the little voice stated in the back of her head. She frowned slightly, but regardless, she awaited the response from the prefect and took a hesitant glance at the blue-haired vampire.

Meanwhile, Kaiya emerged from a pond, screaming and cursing. She was so close! And then that stupid girl had to come and interfere. Kaiya screamed once more, thrashing about much like a child who couldn't have their way. She had seen the look in the blue-haired vampires eyes. He was about to agree. He was about to become hers! Why did Snow-white interfere? Was she vying after the blue-haired vampire too? This caused an insurmountable anger to swell within Kaiya as empty bottles began to break around her. She couldn't have that! He belonged to her! Only she could have him. She would destroy anyone who will get in her way for that!

But there was a slight hesitance in that thought. Snow-white had managed to injure Kaiya. It was a known fact to Kaiya that she couldn't be harmed by vampires, nor humans. She was immune to a vampires venom, immune to the puny weapons and physical assaults of a human. So how did she manage to injure Kaiya? "She has your blood," a voice interrupted her thoughts as Kaiya turned to glare at the one responsible for the statement.

"This feeling as if I only exist to watch everything behind the looking-glass. Never to touch. Never to speak. Why does it disappear whenever I see you here with me."




A wave of relief.

It was what Khalid instantly felt when the male prefect, Watoshi entered the room. Calling out to the male prefect, "Watoshi-san..." This was only done to let the prefect knew that he noticed his presence. The pure-blood was not afraid to admit that being alone in this predicament would be too much for him. Everyone was unconscious and he was not sure what and who to prioritize. However, he was certain that he needed help and to make sure that everyone would be safe. He could not take the risk of having everyone so vulnerable in the chance that Tsukumo returns. If she does, her purpose would probably be him. For whatever reason it may be, he has yet to know. It would be a good place for him to ask his parents but they were currently enjoying themselves with their honeymoon. He did not want to worry and to interrupt them. So, his best bet would be his grandparents.

His trail of thoughts were only halted when he felt Daitokuji being taken from his arms. Instinctively, he pulled the snow-white haired girl closer to his chest. But when he recognized it to be the prefect, he conceded. She would be safer with Watoshi than with him at the moment. The prefect stated about whether he cared for everyone or not and then him being questioned later. He was not certain if he had heard Watoshi's words right but he believed that he understood what it meant. Then, he caught something green which was thrown to him by the prefect. From the looks of it, they were herbs. It seemed Watoshi wanted him to feed this to everyone. Although, it did not go unnoticed by Khalid, the suspicious looks and dubious tone of Watoshi directed to him.

Watoshi cannot be blamed. From the perspective of the those who were not here, it was natural for anyone to conclude that he had a hand in this. After all, he was the only one left standing and unharmed. He was even doubtful of himself at the moment. Looking at the herbs in his hand, he wondered what Tsukumo wanted from him exactly. She called him Prince... But then again, everyone calls him that. Could it be possible that there was something more to that alias? Nothing was making sense at all. He shook his head to stop him from thinking any further. There was something he must do first.

Glancing to his shoulder, he was really worried about Orpei. He would need to feed the familiar his blood. As a result, he placed one of his fingers near his mouth. Elongating his fangs, he bit into the skin and soon blood appeared. He then placed his finger near Orpei's mouth who mumbled, "Sweet..." Soon, his bitten finger was being drained from its blood. When it was done, the pink critter returned to slumber with a satisfied expression. Orpei should be fine now as the pure-blood smiled sweetly at this. Khalid then proceeded to do as what Watoshi told him.

But before he could do so, a familiar voice called out to him. Turning his attention to the door, his eyes soften to a degree. Nightless was finally here. Would it be wrong for him to be this happy to see someone? It is true that he was glad Watoshi came but he felt more at ease with the hunter-prefect's presence. "Nightless-san, I'm glad you're here." Whether the girl heard it or not, he attentively listened to every word being spoken. She did not ask him what happened or if every one was fine. Instead, the girl simply dove in and told him that they will talk later. She was truly different. There were no lingering doubts in her words and those eyes of hers held no suspicion. They were simply filled with the sense of duty and the want to protect. Just like that, he followed the girl's instructions and fed the herbs to the one she pointed out.

Effective. He could tell this much as some of them were already waking up. This brought a gentle smile on his lips as he continued on. When he was done, Khalid noticed Nightless inspecting Orpei who was still on his shoulder. "He will be fine. He is resting." Seeing the girl was satisfied with this, he then saw her going to where Inoue is. The blue pure-blood wondered if the herb would work on Inoue as well. But judging by the dark cloud surrounding him and the others, it seemed more grave. Concern could be seen reflected through his eyes as his face also expressed such worry as well. In any case, Nightless did not waste time by hefting Inoue's arm over her shoulder and then comforting him that everything will be fine.

Was it that obvious? Did he look so worried? Well, he truly was but it can't be helped for him to feel a bit embarrassed. It was then Daitokuji made her appearance. Khalid's eyes widened in surprise seeing her up and about. But further, he was more worried of what she stated. Her body was still recovering from the looks of it. The intention to help was good and all. But to put much strain on her body was downright reckless. Then, there was the effect of her blood from what he had witnessed beforehand. This was a dangerous thing truly. "Even if it is a bit, you will tire yourself out." He then took Inoue into his arms so, that Nightless won't be burdened by carrying the pure-blood. "I also can't take the risk of them being addicted to you. I don't want you hurt."

Those eyes of his which were like the clear blue sky showed nothing but sincerity and concern for her well-being. "We'll try something else. If not, then I will be giving them my blood. It would boost their resistance enough to fight it by themselves." His eyes did not waver before Daitokuji. He was serious in his intention of not taking advantage of her blood. This was far better than to put her into needless consequences. He knew she would probably say something and reject his decision. Yet, he would not allow it. "Please Daitokuji-san, this time let me help." Unlike other vampires who held themselves above everyone, Khalid was not so. He did not have a problem to ask for help or to appear so fragile and determined. After stating that, he looked towards Nightless and gestured for the prefect to follow him to the infirmary. "Let's go Nightless-san."

The vampires whom were already up and about heard the discussion and decided to help their blue pure-blood. They carried the others who was still deep in their dreams. Khalid looked at them and offered a grateful smile. He then looked at the canary of Inoue. "Bibi, please watch over Daitokuji-san." He then looked at Daitokuji once more. This time he had a gentle countenance. "Take care of yourself more, Daitokuji-san." Cradling Inoue closed to him, he then walked passed the snow-white girl but not before remembering something and then looking over his shoulder. "Next time, I'll wear the hair clip." An assuring smile decorating his lips. With that, he left the room for the infirmary.

"They say an unexpected situation can reveal a person's worst and best. What will be yours and mine?"




Conflicted? Very much. Sera was not sure whether to consider Yukiko's suggestion or to abide by Khalid's decision. Well, it seems the vampires who were feeling better were on the blue vampire's side as they carried the others who were still unconscious. It figures which side they'll pick. But, wait just a minute... it was supposed to be her choice. She was the prefect here. In line with that thought, she was able to produce an invisible whistle by using her fingers. It was good that the pure-blood took the burden of carrying Yamato. She then blew effectively creating a whistling sound echoing through the room loudly. This room was made with good acoustics in mind.

When she was certain everyone's attention was on her, Sera pointed a finger at Yukiko. "Rule number 1: It is forbidden to share, to give, or to take blood especially when humans are involved." She then pointed at Khalid as she continued on. "This rule also extends to the Night Class." A moment of silence filled the room but not because of tension or anything but the disposition of the female prefect. It was like more like a mother lecturing the whole of them. Well, it also helped that she had managed to secure a stage by standing on one of the desks. "Going against the rules are punishable. Believe me. I like punishments when I'm the one doing it."

This statement was ended with an eerie smile which had been infamously known as the Devil's Grin. Seeing, her words penetrated everyone. Well, the other vampires seemed to tremble from a bit. If they were because of her words or smile, she will never know until pointed out. She jumped down from the desk and looked at Yukiko once more. "I don't know anything about your blood. But, Daitokuji-chan, trust in me a little. I can treat them without you sacrificing yourself." She offered a smile and then a playful wink as she transferred her attention to the blue-mop individual who was already leaving. This guy was troublesome in a unique way. If Yukiko causes trouble by speaking, Khalid causes problems by smiling, they seemed to be a perfect tandem in her opinion.

"Tamesis-kun, if you are going to do it my way first. Be more confident." Sera said with slight disappointment accompanied by a shake of her head. She was not certain what exactly happened here but, she was their guardian both of the Day and Night Class. It was something she takes pride in no matter what other people says. She would do everything not to fail in this duty and responsibility of hers. Taking a deep breath, she clapped her hands with energy. "Shall we wake these sleeping beauties?" This time there was some comforting in that smile of hers. It was brimming with assurance. This was truly odd for someone like her to have an amicable persona in dealing with vampires. She is after all a hunter. Oh, they forget another important fact. She is the Prefect of Cross Academy.

Following behind Khalid, Sera then gestured for Yukiko to come with her. She did not want to leave the girl alone with just Bibi. More so, she was not sure if that threat who she had earlier was truly gone. It would be better to have everyone within her line of sight. Speaking of which, she wondered where Saken is. The guy was sure taking his time getting help from who knows where. But, she trusts him to be fine. He said so himself before she left the academy for personal matters. "Daitokuji-chan, I can't take my eyes of you and I might need your help." Smiling sweetly at the white-haired girl, she then proceeded to the infirmary were everyone seemed to be going.

Upon arrival, Sera quickly made the preparations from the medicines that she had learned from her apothecary lessons and from the journals of her mother. She then cast a spell on them. In terms of spells, they were not that prevalent or destructive. They were limited to simple wards and enchantments effective against mental manipulation and vampiric presence. After all, the Hunter Association are protected by these wards. It is why no vampires can step foot in it unless they were humans. She was finished soon enough and asked Khalid, Yukiko and the others to have Yamato and the incapacitated vampires to drink her concoction.

The said medicine seemed to be effective as the ones who took it were slowly coming to. Sera beamed proudly while glancing at Yukiko and Khalid. Although, they were vehemently asking for water for their throats were burning especially Yamato who immediately reached for the basin of water used for people who had fevers. Well, that was odd. Remembering the ingredients... Oh.... she used Ghost Pepper because the other ingredient was not available at the moment. Scratching the back of her head, she had let out a nervous laughter. "Well, they're all awake now. Come on, no one's perfect, right?" This girl was really dangerous when it comes to anything being ingested or eaten... So, try at your own risk.

"What is this feeling in my chest that makes it hurt so much? It frightens me."




"You wouldn't be taking that risk. It is a risk that I am willing to take. That is the reason I offered," she retorted as the Tamesis pure-blood spoke to her. She sighed though when he told her to let him be the one to help. Even though she could be stubborn, there was no use in going against the pure-blood's words. Yamato had told her that once but she still couldn't help the feeling of being rebellious and telling him no. Then, he mentioned he would wear the hair clip next time. She had forgotten about his bangs being annoying temporarily. It seemed that she was too engrossed with the events that took place and the people around her, she hadn't said anything about his bangs.

She couldn't help but let a smile adorn her lips at the gesture. Well, if he was willing to do that, then maybe she can learn to tolerate the bangs a bit more. She glanced at them as he turned to walk away. Nope...still irritating, she thought as she glanced towards Serafine as Bibi landed in her hair. She couldn't help but smile at the black-haired girl as she explained the rules to them. There was one thing though that she mentioned that caught Yukiko's attention.

"You do not need to keep an eye on me Serafine-san. I am perfectly fine at protecting myself. You should save your worries for someone who will need them," she replied before following the girl regardless. "And my blood," she paused for a second staring down at her arm as she did so, "It still retains some use even though I am a human. I was once a vampire," she replied as Serafine stated about not knowing about her blood. She then asked Yukiko to trust her on it, and this caused a slight hesitance on Yukiko's part. She might have respected the girl, but to trust her? That was asking a lot from Yukiko regardless of how anyone saw that. She hesitated in her step as she followed behind the female prefect and the blue-haired vampire. She stayed silent as they made their way towards the infirmary.

She had watched Serafine make the concoction before the black-haired girl asked Yukiko and the others to give the drink to the ones still under the spell. She made her way towards Yamato first and placed the cup at his lips in a tender motion, something foreign to her as she watched the drink slip through his lips. The drink seemed to have worked as the vampires woke from their slumbers. Yamato's face seemed to twist a bit more before his eyes snapped open, reaching for the nearest water basin immediately before complaining about a hot sensation filling his throat. Actually, all of the vampires were complaining of burning throats that they were all begging for water or something to cure it with.

The next course of action had Yamato staring at his friend. It was a light sound, and the feeling was strange to Yukiko, but she couldn't help it. She was laughing. Yukiko was actually laughing, and it was because of the reactions of the vampires to Serafine's concoction. Yamato couldn't help but smile at his friend before he dowsed himself with the water. She couldn't understand why she was laughing. It had just slipped passed her lips when she spotted Yamato reaching for the basin. She couldn't stop it, and as much as she wanted to, the laughter kept spilling from her in waves. This feeling was truly an odd sensation, and it frightened Yukiko a bit. She had never once laughed in a public place, nor really laughed to begin with. Nothing was humorous to her, although there were multiple tries on Yamato's part to try and get her to laugh, it just wouldn't happen.

"What?" she stated as the laughter finally subsided and she felt more than a pair of eyes on her. She glanced around as a few of the vampires muttered to themselves about her laugh. It was strange, light, and almost a melodic sound to them. They were not sure this was the same Daitokuji pure-blood turned human in front of them. Yamato fixed them a glance, causing some of them to quiet themselves as Yukiko folded her arms against her chest. She muttered something under her breath, calling them idiots as such before Yamato stood and walked towards Serafine.

"Thank you Sera-chan for your concoction. But please...do let me suffer a bit more before healing me," Yamato stated as he bowed to the girl. He then turned his attention towards Khalid and frowned slightly. He hadn't missed the words she had spoken to the blue-haired vampire, and Yamato was slightly worried. She seemed to have known him, or rather, he might have shared a resemblance to someone she knew since it was a known fact that this pure-blood was still technically a baby in terms of being a vampire. He was a young one by vampire standards and Kaiya had mentioned she had been searching for him for a long time. Usually that goes without saying that someone means it when they say long time. He'd inquire about it later, but for now, there were other things to attend to. Making sure everyone was okay. He left the prefect, the blue-haired vampire, and Yukiko to themselves as she sighed.

"Thank you again Serafine-san. Although I do agree with Yamato-san, you should have let him suffer a bit more," Yukiko stated as she let a light smile tug at her lips. It seemed she was doing that a lot lately. Smiling. She couldn't help it. Was it because of these people around her? She shook the thought from her head. If that were true, that would mean that these people were slowly becoming a part of her life. It was annoying in a sense that the feeling was similar to that of when Yamato first tried befriending her. He had been so persistent at it that she had eventually allowed him to become part of her world. The truly frightening thing about it was that these people, the blue-haired vampire and the black-haired prefect didn't need to try as hard as Yamato. They were just slipping through the cracks that were already there. She glanced at the pure-blood and finally took notice of the irritating bangs.

"Tamesis-san, you're bangs are irritating but," she started, walking up to the pure-blood and moving his bangs to the side. "don't try and fix them because someone else finds them irritating. They are a part of you, and should someone not be able to accept that, then what business have they with you? Please, do not read too much into this, I will always find them irritating," she stated as she released his bangs, allowing them to fall back in their irritating manner. She would rather have the hair clip back in the place, but it was his hair to do as he pleases with them. She couldn't cut them off really, even though she wanted to. And she meant what she said. Even though she found them irritating, she couldn't help but appreciate the fact that the pure-blood still managed to accept them. Maybe, maybe she could learn to start accepting people into her life like that. If she did that, then she wouldn't have just one friend, she'd have a few. Why does this scare her so much?

Because friends are nice to have and you'll never know when you'll need them.
