Physical Description:
Sakura has long, light brown hair that most of the time she just lets hang loose. She has large hazel eyes that match her her perfectly and full light. She tends to lose her train of thought easily and she tends to day dream and zone out all of time, and when she does she ends up pursing her lips and pulling together her eyebrows as she stares, unblinking at something for as long as she stay's trapped into her mind, captivated by her own thoughts. When she is in this state, most people don't go near her, and that's mostly because her eyes get a hard, steely look that could scare off any who are lacking courage. When her hair is down it hands to her lower back in soft curls, and when she is seen around the school she will be seen in her Uniform with her Prefect badge on.

She has a very slender, yet curvy form, through she isn't one to show off, she doesn't connect to other's very well, and most of the time it's because some people are too scared to approach her because she appears violent. Through her body is slim, and weak, she often uses her temper and fiery spirit to fight when she sees fit. When she is angered her eyes will darken to a chocolate brown and her bangs will hang in her face, hiding her eyes and giving her over all appearance a scary feel as her Aura darkens. However when she is happy, her eyes will seem lighter than usually, like the color of honey, and she will grin like a child on Christmas. Sakura is very short, but she dosen't let that both her very much, she only gets angry when others tease her about it.

Romantic Interest: TBA

Skills and Abilities:

Because of her illness, Sakura is not as physically fit as she could be, but despite this she still fights like she is not ill at all, just short. She was trained by Kyo in the way of the sword, and was given an Anti-Vampire Sword that she has on her person at all times in case it is needed. She is a brilliant writer and reader, and can finish reading a whole book in one day, and write a brilliant essay in one hour. The biggest skill she will ever have through, is the will not to give up. She has a fiery spirit and even through she is always ill and her death is near, Sakura still ends to pick fights and not give up until she comes out as the winner, no matter who her opponent is, she refuses to give up.

Despite her illness and how sickly she can be, very swift and graceful, even when she is fighting, unless her temper gets the best of her, Kura takes pride in being so agile and tends to put extra work into moving with nearly as much grace as a Night Class Student.

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”





Dominant Traits:

STUBBORNNESS: She hates being told what to do and when to do, she likes you go her own way and not listen to people if their being unreasonably bossy.

BIG HEART: She tends to be too trusting and loving, she takes pity on others and she loves everyone, through she hides it, and her emotions can get the best of her sometimes.

HUMOR: She tends to crack jokes at the worst of times.

SHORT TEMPER: She has a very short temper, and when it gets off she tends to see red and do thing's she shouldn't do, which never really ends up helping the situation.

TARDINESS: Never bothering to set alarms of any kind, Sakura often finds herself losing track of time and thus being late. Due to her stubbornness, she refuses to even simply wear a watch or set an alarm on it.

DETERMINATION: Once Sakura sets her mind to something, she never gives up on the idea. She thinks that if she works hard enough at it, at perhaps, becoming stronger, she'll be able to protect her loved ones instead of watching them all die. She never wants to go through that again.

“It’s impossible for me to think about my future. I can’t even recognize myself right now. How can I know what I want to do later when I don’t even know what to do right now.”





Dislikes:
✘ Bright lights
✘ Loud people
✘ Her Illness
✘ Rude people
✘ The Grim Reaper
✘ Ducks

Other:
Because she watched her Parents die right before her eyes, she promised herself when she went to the Academy that she would never let a Vampire hurt one of the Day Class Students, or any of her friends, ever again. IF that ever happened she would take personal blame and beat herself up over it. Despite her sickness and beliefs Sakura still fights often with the Day Class Students, and they often end up in violent brawls with females and males alike.

Most of the time Sakura can be found in the library, studying for her classes and storing as much information she can within her head on nearly every subject. She wants to one day out grow her illness, get stronger, and become one of the strongest, smartest, best Vampire Hunters in the world, she wants to in some ways, find the Vampires that had murdered her family, and get revenge.

It's strange when people compare revenge and the small girl, sense Sakura keeps her deep need for revenge hidden from even her closest friends, but it's there, deep down inside of her, and it's most likely the only thing that drives her to get out of bed in the mornings.

Image
“When you stop growing you start dying.”





Personality:
Words are precious things and rare ones when it comes to Sakura. Often she isn't at the front of the group but rather at the back watching and learning far more than you would think. Kura has always been able to read people and see things about them that others can't. She is quick witted and willing to speak the truth when no one else will, she has a knack for showing the harder side of life that people want to ignore. Most people take notice of when she butts into a conversation, since she more than likely has something important to say.

Sakura is a firm believer in the idea that scars never go away, that time cannot heal everything. This goes is part of the mindset she has that people need to face their problems and that it is by doing this that they can grow as a person. Never being one to shy away when problems arise up her direct and no nonsense attitude in life makes it so that she very rarely has an issue that is not dealt with quickly. Since she himself has many problems she has an amazing ability for empathy, talking over people's problems when they need too and helping them confront them.

Because of what happened to her family, Sakura has always been very protective of those around her, she cares for everyone in her own way, sometimes she says harsh things in hopes it’ll make them stronger, and other times she will be understanding and caring. She is hard to figure out, so not many people try, but in all honesty, she doesn't want people to understand her, sometimes she wonders how she ended up as a Prefect at Cross Academy, because of her dark past; she should be a dark person, but she can’t bring herself to do something evil, because she feels if she gives into the dark, she’ll lose everything she has worked for. Kura is someone who is driven by the will to do right in the world, and the will to have courage, she doesn't take no for an answer and allows her determination to drive her never to give up.

Because of her Illness, she doesn't always see the good in the world, and will often make comments on how she's a 'Dead girl living' or how she's 'already dying anyway, so she has nothing to lose by fighting' and that's just what she dose, she often endangers her life by fighting others, and she never cares. Aside from everything else, Sakura has a darker side of her, a side that longs for revenge on the Vampires that killed her family. She keeps this darkness hidden from everyone except Kyo, because he promised to train her to fight so one day, when she is better, she will be able to get her revenge. Sakura knows that her parents would have been irked at the idea of the person who they had entrusted their daughter to, was helping her down a path of darkness, but she doesn't truly care, because she figures she'll die before she can get vengeance. She tries not to get depressed over the death sentence she has had hanging over her head since birth, so to counter the sadness and fear Sakura truly feels for death, she uses anger and fighting as a outlet.

“I should not really object to dying were it not followed by death.”





History:
Sakura dose not have the best past, from the moment she was born to present day she has been diagnosed with a rare illness that makes her body weaker and her immune system barely work at all. Kura is always sick and if she gets to worked up she can go into coughing fits, as far as she knows she will die by the time she turns seventeen, but since she is sixteen turning seventeen, she tends to be more open about the fact that she'll be dead in a few months, and she has gotten more violent then believable. Because of her illness her blood is rare, and not replaceable. Vampire have often remarked how they could smell the illness and tell that her blood is different, but all who have brought it up have been the few vampires she is friends with.

When Sakura was ten, her parents were murdered right in front of her. Kyo Ichigo, who was a family friend, promised Sakura's parents before they died that he would guard her with his life until the day she died. After that day they traveled alone for a few years until Kura turned fourteen and the Headmaster of Cross Academy caught wind of what had happened, since Sakura's parents had been Vampire Hunters, he welcomed her with open arms, and even offered her a job as one of the schools guardians. Kura, feeling as if she had let her parents down by not being able to protect them, took she job and made a silent vow to herself that she would protect any and every human at the Academy from Vampires.

Kura has been haunted by her parents deaths for the last seven years, and as she grew she devolved a strong need for revenge. When Kyo and herself were traveling, he taught her everything he knew about hand to hand combat and in the way of the sword. As a gift for her eleventh birthday, Kyo gave her, her fathers Anti-Vampire sword so she would always have a way to protect herself against vampires. Sakura wants nothing more than to be able to go back to that day and save her parents, but she knows that there is no way she would ever be able to save them, so she shoulders the guilt of their deaths and the rage within herself alone, she dose not feel the need to spread such unjustified feelings with anyone else other then Kyo, who is very much aware of how she feels.



So begins...

"I have this longing to return to somewhere... to someone... but until I can, this existence of mine is like a sweet nightmare.”




Here it goes again. The transition between the Day and Night. For a certain individual, it was not a simple means of passing time or the replacement of the sun with the moon. If it was only that, there would have been no problems for the young man who had earned although, unconsciously, the title as one of the beauties of Cross Academy. He would have remained here laying in the hay of the stables enjoying his own personal escape. It was peaceful here. No one to disturbed him. Nothing to disrupt the steady beating of his existence. As if, he was meant to flow in the vast expense of the emptiness. Surprisingly, he does not find the odd at all. At the end of that void, he could hear a voice, a presence so familiar, so like him. But then, he must wake up.

Alas, duty calls as he felt a blow of warm breath on his forehead. His eyes of ash green opened like blooming leaves as it reflected the form of a white horse looking down on him. "I know Iris." He softly muttered as he reached for the face of the horse that had particularly taken a liking to him and so did he. Gently stroking Iris' face made the mare leaned more to his touch, this made him smile ever so warmly which is not shown to anyone else. Such a sincere gesture not shrouded of necessity and lies, it was truly a rare thing for someone like him.

"Be a good girl while I'm out." As if to answer with pride, Iris huffed and stamped its hooves on the ground. He nodded in understanding as he released the horse's face and then stood from his position. Stretching his limbs, he looked at the wide open doors and saw the horizon flickering with orange and golden hues. He had skipped his classes earlier since it was a rather boring topic and opted to play hooky here at the stables. It was much better than staying in some cooped up classroom with all those prying eyes especially the girls on his form. Well if he was a bit late for prefect duty, the other one like him could handle things. She should be if not what is her use as a prefect to begin with.

Cleaning himself up from any stray hay in his uniform, Iris even helped by blowing some of the strands away that were sticking on his hair. Once, he was certain that he did not look as disheveled as he usually was. He thanked the mare whom seemed very elated to be of service to him. It was then he exited the stables. This had been his usual routine since his assignment here at the academy. He is very aware about the importance of maintaining the treaty between vampires and humans. This is the main reason this school was created. Hunters such as him were created to be the guardians and watchers between the two worlds. However, he preferred hunting the mad ones than babysitting the elites of the vampires as they call themselves.

Walking through the woods, he took his time. It won't be long before he would be surrounded by stupid crowds with all their ga-ga talk about the Night Class. More than that, he would have to deal with that idiot again. Thinking about it, irritation was already bottling within him as he released a rather long sigh. It would not be his fault if he ever killed that fool of a pure-blood. There was a great possibility that guy was created just to annoy the hell out of him. Well, he was soon thrown out of his own mind when he heard the infuriating screams of the girls and even some of the voice from the male populace. Those vampires were not celebrities and even they were, haven't they gotten tired doing that for years already?

"It's Eon-senpai!"

"Eon-senpai is here!"

"Eon-kun! Eon-Kun!"

"Its prefect Eon!"

"Shiraga-senpai is so cool!"

"Shiraga-san!"

"Is it me or is Shiraga-kun look so hot today?"


Yes. he forgot completely. He has his own shares of screams and incessant clamor about him. Honestly, he does not understand what for. In his opinion, he appears as normal as he could be. Wearing the standard Day Class uniform, he left his jacket and the upper button of his inner shirt opened. It effectively showed a bit of his skin. The necktie was not properly tied and simply hanging loose around his neck. He was not the kind to have a proper and prim appearance after all. On his hair, his infamous goggles hanging loosely that will always be on his person no matter what. There was nothing special about what he looked like. Yet, he had heard many times that he looked dastardly sexy and hot. Even then, it does not make sense at all.

"Shut it and go back to your dorms!" He stated in an irritated tone as his eyes glared at crowd who was silenced by the simple statement. Most of them had a disappointed look but continued to annoy him with their theatrics. For the past years in his attendance in this school, he never once provided these imbeciles any decency of politeness or an amount of patience when it comes to what they do. Still, it is remarkable that they view it as an act of his when in reality, he was contemplating of creating bullet holes in all of them. "For the umpteenth time move or I will ensure that you would chose hell over anything else just to escape my punishment." Those eyes of pale green flickered with threat and serious intent.

It was not hard for the Day Class to know that Eon was not someone to push any further. Even more so, he was the kind of person to be trifled with when he is deadly serious. This is why he is an effective prefect. He does not only garner fear but also a great amount of admiration especially from the females of the school even among the Night Class. The crowd silenced immediately and began to slowly disperse. No one wants to know or even see Eon gets mad. But, there was one being who was also the prefect's greatest admirer and does not fear being the sole receiver of his rage. As if on cue, the Gates of the Moon Dormitory opened and the Night Class who are unknown to the Day Class were vampires revealed themselves.

Eon could feel the hairs at the back of his neck stand. This only happens with that idiot. Just like that, he heard the upbeat voice of the most infuriating individual he had ever met. Without a hesitation, he met that individual with his foot on that person's face.

”There are many doors that can lead to different paths.The ones that matter are those opened with someone.”




Ringing could be heard inside the dark chambers. It was incessant as the melody it brought out did not skip a note. Soon, a reaction much wanted could be seen. The silk sheets slowly rose from the bed resembling an apparition. Still darkness also added to the horrifying illusion as the velvet curtains securely blocked the illumination that nature could provide from entering the room. For a few moments, the scenery remained without a change. It was only dispelled by a click of a tongue followed by an unrefined yawn. Long and slender fingers grabbed onto the sheets and pulled it away with much resentment. Upon doing so, it revealed a surreal beauty with silver blonde locks and mesmerizing pair of blue and gold eyes. Albeit, the eyes were hazed with annoyance accompanied by a tinge of sleepiness. This person was none other than the irrevocable Night Class Leader, Aeron Melanthe.

Placing his right hand over his face, it effectively covered half of it as he closed his eyes. He was not an early riser and had always find himself having a hard time being separated from his oh-so wonderful bed. Without looking, a hand reached for the source of the sound that alerted him to the world of the living. It was an alarm clock which he soon turned off. Silence filled his room once more. He could hear that the other students inside the Moon Dormitory were already up and about as their every movement could be heard by his sensitive ears.

Opening his gold eye which was not covered up by his hand, he glanced at the clock on his nightstand. It was just 10 minutes after 5 in the afternoon. Why did he not assumed morning? The obvious fact, they are the Night Class. Their kind sleep when the sun rises and they wake when the moon claims the sky. How he wanted to sleep more... His bed looked so inviting. Then, there were his fluffy pillow. But, it means he could see him again. That alone was enough to wash away all the sleepiness from him. He removed the hand which covered half of his face and quickly sat up on his bed. The silk covers which hid his frame fell like riveting water and fully revealed his contoured physique.

"I can see him again!"

Happiness and excitement filled his voice. His eyes of heterochromia shimmered with absolute adoration. Aeron finally stood as he made his way to his bathroom to prepare for the night. He was only wearing a pair of black pajama pants without a top. In short, he was half-naked. Actually, he likes sleeping naked saying its more comfortable. Of course, this is something unknown by many. But before entering his bathroom, he went to the small corner of his room where a table and a chair were elegantly placed. On the table, there was a Staunton chess set with some of its pieces already moved. It was not just any chess set as it was one of the 500 sets that were personally signed and numbered by Howard Staunton who designed this particular set. If he could recall correctly, this set was numbered 1. He moved the black rook forward defeating the white knight piece.

"Checkmate!"

A bright smile on his face as he finally entered his bathroom and get himself ready in meeting his special person again. Oh yes, his very important person. After a few minutes, he was out of his room and walking along the hallways. Donning the illustrious uniform of the Night Class, he looked like some kind of prince even more like a beautiful paining coming to life. They seemed to be empty from any residents. Well, he was pretty sure where they were all. Reaching the staircase, he found them all waiting for him at the lobby like some loyal servants for their king. He had become their leader in some form of election which he did not really take part in. Clearly, everyone liked him better than the other guy. Whatever floats their boat as he says.

"Good morning, everybody! Let's all have a pleasant day! Okay?"

Yes, he was definitely unlike any other pure-bloods. There are good-natured ones like him and smile but they still held a degree of elegance and refinement. They were still irreparably distant. However, Aeron never exuded such an aura. Rather, he seems like a normal person that simply blends with everyone. Well, he still stands out due to his looks. It is undeniable especially with his two-colored eyes. More or less, the night class is completely at ease with him as their leader. Although, they do respect his desire to keep their distance and never to touch him so casually until he wanted them to. In any case, he had a bright smile on his face and twinkling eyes that held excitement. It is no secret to them what was the cause of that.

It is safe to say, there would be another unnerving yet entertaining spectacle to be laid before them soon enough. "Come on! Come on!" Some giggled at the exuberant pure-blood. Others sighed with a gentle countenance and most simply smiled sweetly at their leader. Aeron did not mind them seeing him as amusing or funny. He was completely fine with that. More importantly, he was going to see him again. This was enough to put him on the state of nirvana. Nothing was going to get him down. As they all stood before the gates, he could hear the screams of the Day Class for their favorites in the Night Class. But, his ears perked up when the majority of the voices united to say one name. It was like the pure-blood had dog ears sprouting his head on the imagination level.

The gates opened and without further ado, Aeron ran ahead from the night class. Actually, it was like dashing without waiting for any signal lights. His arms wide open ready to embrace the one he wanted to see so much. "Eon!!! My sweet love!!! Yes, his special person was none other than the male prefect, Eonis Shiraga. The man certainly welcomed him with a wonderful kick. This cause the onlookers from the some of the Day Class who were still there and the Night Class looked with surprise. Well, this is a daily occurrence but the antics are getting exaggerated as time passes by. In any case, Eon's foot was firmly implanted in front of his face effectively stopping him from advancing further. His arms still reaching for an embrace. The pure-blood was unrelenting. "Ehon.---sho---mhshed yow---" His incoherent words were all due to Eon's foot pushing him further away.

“It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.”





Another day, another hour, another minuet, another second, another day. It was just another day. Sakura walked silently down the side walk, the beating down onto the small girl as the crisp air filled her lungs. As she walked, she held a of measure authority over the other students out and about. She walked with meaning and a rather aggravated look set in her eyes. The reason why? Because it was her least favorite time of the day, and the Day Class were already getting on her nerves. Kura had a job she had to go and get done, as a Prefect of Cross Academy, it was her job to keep the Day Class away from the Night Class as they exchanged place's within the school, the Night Class Students leaving their dorms and going to classes while the Day Class Students were leaving classes and going to their dorms.

In all honesty, Kura wasn't sure why the Headmaster didn't set the curfew for the Day Class to an earlier time, it would save the other Prefect, Eonis Shiraga, and herself, much trouble. Of course not through, the Headmaster felt that the two classes should interact at least at some point in the day, so why not between classes and curfew? She sighed aloud as she neared the crowds of Day Class Students, swarming around the Moon Dorm gates as a bell went off. Different names were being shouted, however they were all names that belonged to Night Class Students...all but one name.

"It's Eon-senpai!"

"Eon-senpai is here!"

"Eon-kun! Eon-Kun!"

"Its prefect Eon!"

"Shiraga-senpai is so cool!"

"Shiraga-san!"

"Is it me or is Shiraga-kun look so hot today?"


Sakura's eye twitched as she suppressed a laugh. The screams of pure glee were the only way Sakura knew Eonis-sama was here. Ignoring the glee she got from the fact that Eonis had most likely unwanted fans screaming his name, she made her way to the front of the crowd and stood with her back to the gates. "Okay, that's enough! Everyone move aside and line up in an orderly fashion so the Night Class can pass!" Her voice carried out through the crowd that was momentary silenced before they all started arguing at once.

"Why should we listen to you?!"

"Just because your a Perfect doesn't mean you can tell us what to do!"

"Why would I listen to someone shorter than me!"

"You just want the Night Class all to yourself!!!"

"Make us shorty!"


Sakura's eye twitched as her fist's clenched. For a moment she had to turn her back on the crowd, she didn't need to start any fights now, it would only get her in trouble with the Headmaster and Kyo. She took a deep, settling breath, before spinning around and glaring at the crowd. "I said...move!" her eyes darkened as her voice got louder. "Now. She hissed making nearly all of the students before her flinch. Because she could scare them further, Eon stepped in.
"Shut it and go back to your dorms!" His tone screamed irritated as everyone shut up at once and stared. Sakura glanced over her shoulder with an unhappy pout set on her face. Why did they listen to him? It was because he was taller than her, wasn't it. "For the umpteenth time move or I will ensure that you would chose hell over anything else just to escape my punishment." His voice was low yet clear as his pale green eyes showed the threat clearly.

Slowly a grin broke out onto Kura's face as she gazed at her fellow Prefect, sometimes she wondered if he was as violent as she was, at the same time, she didn't really want to find out. Sakura had the feeling that if she tired to fight him, she would be biting off more then she could handle. Just then, another bell rang, and the Moon Dorm gates slowly opened, reveling the Night Class in all their glory. Suddenly one of the Night Class came running out, his arms out stretched and ready for an embrace. Sakura raised an eyebrow as none other than Aeron Melanthe jumped towards Eon. "Eon!!! My sweet love!!!" He shouted while jumping towards the other boy. Slowly her grin expanded and she made her way over to Eon and Aeron, who had just gotten kicked by Eon.

Kura watched for a moment purely amused with the scene in front of her, before she allowed her grin to fall into a straight line and her eyes to wander over to the other Night Class Students. Her eyes narrowed half an inch as she watched them all closely. They were all here because they said that they wanted to make peace with Humans, because they wanted to keep the peace with the humans. But none of them were to be trusted completely.

Vampires.

Creatures of the night who feed from the blood of humans, monsters who kill without thinking, being who only care for self gain. Each of them were here for their own reasons, and each of them posed a threat to all of the Humans at this school that Sakura had swore to protect with her life. Even Kyo, the Vampire who had nearly raised her, posed a threat to them all, to be fair through, he had told her not to ever trust everyone, not even him. She was always on her guard, perhaps that is why Sakura hated this time of the day, because she had to interact with all of them, because she had to tense up and mentally per pair herself for the worst. She stepped aside to stand beside Eon so the Night Class could pass between the two lines of Day Class Students on either side of them.

Kura turned her gold gaze from the Night Class to the two boys beside her. With a gentle hand she reached out and tapped the knee on Eon's raised leg, however she said nothing to him, instead she addressed Aeron. "Aeron-san, you should go ahead with your class." Her voice was distant as she spoke. Sh yes, that's why she hates this time of day, being around them brought back memoirs of that night. She held nothing against all of the Night class, she she should have such a cold gaze directed to any of them, but she couldn't help it. If only she could talk to Kiyo about it. Blinking her eyes back into focus she offered a small smile to Aeron. "You're teacher would be rather irked if you were to be late, right? Well..if he's not late himself, that is." Sakura chuckled to herself because it was true, the teacher for the Night Class had no concept of time, she knew because she often ran into him when he was late and she was making her rounds.

"Truly these people are something entertaining. But then, I wouldn't want it any other way."




"Not only the Night Class, but our prefect as well," Kiyoko muttered to herself as she chuckled at the sudden clamor for the male prefect. She shook her head at their antics and only laughed when he harshly dismissed them. She would have thought by now they would have given up on the male, but apparently, as one student stated, it added to his charm. Whatever the reason, Kiyoko only chuckled as the students dispersed with a few still managing to stay around. She finally managed to spot the shrimp of a girl. Not that she'd ever mention it in front of Sakura unless she had an inkling for pain...which she didn't. But the girl was just so...short? Before she could make her way towards the female prefect, a shriek and a loud call captured her attention.

It was the one she dubbed Hare, the pure-blood leader of the Night Class. She smiled fondly at the scene, even though Eonis' foot was currently in Hare's face. She brought her hand up to her mouth as she kept herself from laughing more. She shook her head before continuing her way towards Sakura. She noticed one of the Night Class students making their way towards her friend, and the intention behind their eyes only served for Kiyoko to walk a little faster. Before the Night Class student could lay a hand on her friend, Kiyoko's own hand snatched the perpetrator's wrist in a gentle, yet firm grip. A smile lingered on her lips as the vampire turned to meet her blue gaze.

"I'd appreciate it if you didn't sneak up on my friends like that. Plus, you shouldn't be lingering out longer than what is necessary so you need to return to class," she stated in a gentle tone. She wasn't reprimanding the vampire, merely just protecting her friend. She knew that look in their eyes and it wasn't uncommon for a vampire to try and be sneaky about trying to get Sakura. The vampire merely laughed nervously before walking off with another group. Kiyoko sighed as she smiled at her friend. She seemed to be okay for the most part so she sighed a breath of relief. Sakura was currently conversing with the male prefect and the white-haired vampire. She waited patiently for Sakura to finish her conversation before offering the girl a smile.

"Shiraga-san, Melanthe-san," Kiyoko greeted before turning her attention to the small girl in front. "Besides, Kura-chan, I believe Shiraga-san can handle Melanthe-san. They are good friends...I think," she stated the last sentence in a hushed whisper. From the interactions the two had, she could only assume that the two were close. If they weren't, well...then she'd just leave it at that. After all, sometimes even though someone might appear close to each other, they might in reality despise each other. Not that Kiyoko would care either way, it wasn't her business to know either or. Regardless, she offered the two males a small smile before grabbing Sakura's arm with her own.

"Kura-chan! Will you escort me back to my room? Ichigawa-san is being a bit creepier than usual," she asked as she laughed nervously. Ichigawa was one of the Day Class students who often clung to Kiyoko. Why? She could never understand the girl. Although she was fond of the girl, Ichigawa could be a bit...odd. She rubbed the back of her neck sheepishly, momentarily forgetting the presence of the prefect and pure-blood. "Eh, oh but don't worry everything is good," she quickly stated, waving her hands in front of her face as she sighed in defeat. With that said and done, she hooked her arm with Sakura's, despite their obvious height difference. Off in the distance, a gentle howl could be heard, causing Kiyoko to turn her attention towards the source.

It had to be him, the only wolf she knew that lived in the back forest of the Academy. She found it odd that such a creature made it's home so close to the Academy, and even more so when the Headmaster seemed completely fine with it. He had mentioned something about being close to nature and some other nonsensical nonsense. This brought a warm smile to her lips as a voice entered her thoughts, piercing the veil of her reality. She knew this voice, it belonged to someone important to her. She couldn't make out the words, or what they were trying to say, but the way it sounded...she liked the feeling of warmth it brought to her. Snapping out of her reverie, she blinked owlishly before shaking her head. "Sorry Kura-chan, I lost my train of thoughts. Shall we?" she stated as she offered Sakura a grin.

"Is it possible to kill someone from annoyance? May be, it is because I'm about to do that.”




There was no point understanding what this idiotic pure-blood was saying. He really did not want to know either way. Why is this good-for-nothing idiot all clingy to him all the time? He could not remember for the love of god anything that could provoke such an annoying attachment. At this very moment, he was preventing himself from the itch of taking out either Bloody Rose or Godhand from their holsters and pumping this two-eyed vampire with lead. Perhaps, it would be more amusing for all of them if he does that. Despite his obvious rejection, the idiot was still relentless pushing on forward.

He could feel the vein on his forehead already throbbing in irritation. The Night Class just stood by watching the spectacle. They were not going to intervene as this event had become much to his dislike a daily occurrence. "Don't you dare touch me. You gay-limbo." Eon stated with an icy cold tone along accompanied by a terrifying glare from those ash green eyes of his. He had told this pure-blood many times with various rejection methods. But, this idiot had the tenacity of a cockroach. There is no way he would consider that as a redeeming quality. Why can't he be like the other one or most of his kind? They all stay hell out of his way.

"I will pump you with lead if you don't stop being disgusting! And don't call me your love! Hell no!" To emphasize this, he further put more force to his foot which was implanted to the pure-blood's face. It was like he was going to put a hole on that ugly mug of this idiot. However, it was then the other prefect intervened. He had barely noticed the short stuff. Not because of her height, it was more of a presence. She had a weak life force, so, she was almost off a tangent in his radar. Although, she could use that to her advantage. In any case, a hand tapped his knee. It meant she want his foot to be removed. He will oblige for if he had any part of his body attached to this mongrel of a vampire, there was a possibility of him being infected with stupidity.

"All yours." Eon noted to Ito as he simply dislodged his foot from the pure-blood's face by kicking him away. It should have brought that moron some distance between them. That was then another student of the Day class approached them with that red hair. It was hard not to notice with all of the light colors of spring and the darkening skies. The red just pops out unconsciously. If he remembered this girl was a friend of Ito's, well not much of a sense to him and not his matter to deal with. But a greeting was only proper to be given back. In his terms of a reply, he simply gave a nod of his head. It would have been better if the girl just stick to the greetings. He heard it. The dreadful word especially relating him to that heterochromic buffoon.

"Oi." Eon called out as he stepped forward and leaned terribly closed enough to Kiyoko. "Don't ever call me or this moron as friends." Those eyes that displayed ash green seemed to reflect a mysterious hue of blue. A mystery or a trick of his eyes but, it was one of his so-called alluring traits as others had described it. In any case, his eyes did not show humor but an intensity of seriousness. There was no way he would ever considered that stupid vampire as a friend. For that matter, no one will be his friend in this lifetime. He had no need for such things. They were all hindrances in one form or another. It was then he turned his back from them and went on his way.

"I'll handle patrol." That is what Eon simply said towards the other prefect as he headed towards the woods. But not before glaring at the still remaining Day class students, "Go back to your dorm! Hell, I'll slaughter you." This was enough for the rest to run for cover and to leave without prompting the male prefect for further irritation. He then looked over his shoulder to look at the idiotic pure-blood who might be following him. "Tell that moron to stay the hell away from me! Get to your classes already Night Class or I will exercise my authority as a prefect." With that said, he then departed from the scene. He did not want to bother with irritating trivialities as conversation and connections. All he needed is a goal and a mission. Nothing else matters plus it never gets too complicated for his liking.

”This pain is fleeting and harmless to me.Because it only means, I can touch this person again.”




Cruel. Violent. Downright rude. All of these descriptions have one thing in common. This is how Eon treats him. It might be viewed as unfitting for someone like him. After all, he is a pure-blood and the leader of the infamous Night Class. However, he does not mind the treatment which the male prefect showers him every day. It would not be too much for anyone to assume that he seemed to enjoy such reactions to his presence. He must be a masochist which is a noted by many. This made him a focal figure in terms of eccentricities. They were not just aware that the feeling of being able to touch someone without the fear of erasing that existence was liberating for the pure-blood. In a way, he was simply enjoying this moment where he can freely experience everything. Unfortunately for Eon, he was the only who can provide such a desire.

"Don't you dare touch me. You gay-limbo."

There it was the usual cold tone that could freeze the entirety of the Pacific ocean and the label which had gained from the prefect. Those eyes of pale green held such intense feeling of anger towards him. It made the pure-blood flinch unconsciously. For the first time, he was truly fearful of this person. It was not because of what the prefect was capable of doing. The thing he feared the most was being hated completely. The sudden lost of a person who was free from his cursed ability. He did not want to be alone anymore. He did not want to be hated by Eon but at the same time, he did not want to stop from touching the male prefect. This was his only reprieve. His only source of light and hope. Would it be terrible to make every moment of his life to this small and almost unnoticeable fragment in the wide world?

"I will pump you with lead if you don't stop being disgusting! And don't call me your love! Hell no!"

He did not doubt Eon's ability to fill his body with lead. The prefect could certainly do that with his special weapons forged for that single purpose, to kill him, and to kill his kind. He does not bare any kind of resentment towards it. This was a means to place humans in equal footing with them in a sense they can be eradicated if push comes to shove. Speaking of which, he could feel the intensity of Eon's foot trying to put a hole on his face. The prefect was certainly not pleased at all. But, he loves Eon. So, is it not proper to call someone like that as his love? He read that somewhere in a book. Oh, the simplicity of his understanding of social interactions even with the experience he had accrued. He was still an infant when it comes to his own feelings not placed in a fake identity.

In the name of heavens, the foot was removed from his face. However, he was kicked as he was thrown a couple of meters far from Eon. As for him, he had landed on his bum as the other Night Class inquired about his health. It is true that this had become much a normal thing, but the vampires still were agitated by the fact that the male prefect treated their leader like trash. These kind of things are certainly unacceptable. Anyway, the pure-blood was quick to recover as he stood up and wailed like a child. "Eon! Eon! Eon! How could you? Is it not normal for one to embrace someone you missed greatly? I missed you!" One of the pure-blood's redeeming quality, resilience.

But before he could lunge once more to Eon, something or rather someone called his attention and blocked his way. Looking down, he saw the other prefect, the girl one. She told him to go to his classes and all. Well, it was reasonable enough as it was almost time for the curfew to start. Then again, his teacher was late most of the time as the girl reminded him. The normal reaction would be for anyone to stay longer. After all, it was the prefect who already stated that their teacher was tardy and all of that. So, there was no use in being early. What an odd girl. Then, another female arrived with the hair of red which he likes.

As it is customary, he was greeted by the red-haired girl. He answered with a bright smile. "Hello!" However, that smile widened even more when his ears took the word friends. It made his day into a dazzling one. "You think so? I am so happy to be friends with Eon! So happy!" Those two-toned eyes of his glittered with such ardor as he looked at the male prefect. But, Eon was clearly against it judging by the prefect's reaction alone. It made the pure-blood pout like an adorable child. "Eon! Eon!" He called out in such longing and obvious desperation. Eon was walking away leaving him alone. He has yet to touch him when the prefect stopped midway.

Being told to stay way from him, it was impossible. Eon was everything to him. The prefect was his first in everything. Taking a deep breath, he looked at the two girls with a simple salute and then looked at the Night Class. "Go to class, everyone! See you later! Wish me luck too!" He waved so energetically at them and then ran after the prefect who had decided to leave them all. The Night Class looked at one another and released a large sigh. They were certain they could hear screams and few things being broken in the distance soon enough. As for him, he soon finally reached Eon and embraced him from behind. Finally, he was able to hold the elusive prefect.

While with the Night Class, they began to count together to 5. As they expected, the scream of their leader echoed through the woods. Just like that, they shook their head and some even laughed. This was the daily routine. It was much a normal day at Cross Academy or is it now?

“Man cries, but soon his tears dry up and run out. So he becomes a devil, reduced to a monster. Is this the kind of world we live in now?"





Sakura smiled fondly at Kiyoko as she appeared beside her, Kura hadn't even noticed that her friend had dismissed a wandering Night Class Student. How troublesome, Kiyo could have been hurt because Kura hadn't been paying attention. A frown formed on her face at the very idea before turning back towards Eon and Aeron. Eon had listened to Kura's silent request and lowered his leg, but not before kicking Aeron away from him. Kura wanted to roll her eyes at the two boys, they were acting like school children. She nearly wanted to laugh at the two, however her mood changed dramatically when Eon drew close to Kiyo's face and nearly yelled at her for calling himself and Aeron friends. Her hand twitched to where her Anti-Vampire was being hidden, and she reached out, ready to grab his shoulder and pull him back, but he removed himself before she had the chase, so she allowed her hand to fall to her side.

He told her that he wound handle patrol before yelling at the Day Class and Night Class alike as he walked away. She sighed before turning towards Kiyoko and Aeron, Kiyo requesting that he be escorted to her dorm and Aeron saying farewell before running after Eon. Kura's eye widened and she reached out to grab him but he was already gone. "H-hey Aeron-san!! Don't follow Eonis-sama!! Baka!!" She shouted after the Pure-blood while pulling on the hold that Kiyo had on her arm. "Aeron-san! ugh...Kiyo-chan come on, I have to stop that baka from getting himself killed." She hissed, pulling her best friend by the arm as she stomped after the two boys. After five seconds screams filled the air, but Sakura quickly intervened once the two boys were in sight. She reached out and grabbed the back of Aeron's shirt and jacket, pulling him backwards and tossing him over towards Kiyo. "Eonis-sama I'll escort them to their intended destinations and then come back for portal." She offered a small smile before turning around and grabbing both of them, Kiyo by the wrist and Aeron by the ear.

"Aeron-san...Why do you bother Eonis-sama so much?" She sighed and shook her head at the much taller boy, who she was dragging behind her. That must be what it's like to have a bond with someone... She glanced over at Kiyo and frowned slightly before turning back towards Aeron. Eonis-sama is who Aeron-san considers to be his first true love, I wonder if it's upsetting when Eonis-sama acts so rudely... Sakura stopped and released Aeron's ear. "Tomorrow, instead of trying to hug him, just walk up to him and try to start a normal conversation. If you don't scream like one of his fan-girls, he might actually talk with you." She smiled up at Aeron before nodding towards the Night Class that were now walking away, the only person that waited Kyo.

"Aeron-san, can you go to class without me having to escort you back? If you get there in time I'll send Eonis-sama to portal that part of the school when all of your classes end." She gave him a mischievous grin at the idea of tricking Eonis-sama into seeing Aeron, in some ways she was bribing the Vampire into going to class, but it wasn't a horrible idea, and it was better than having to listen to his screaming as Eon beat him up. "I have to take Kiyo-chan to her dorm before anyone else see's her out and about after curfew." She turned her eyes towards the forest,it was an innocent glance, but because of it she saw the Night Class teacher entering the tree line and disappearing into the darkness. Wait...why would he be going in there..? Didn't I see.... Her eyes narrowed a fraction of an inch as her mind ran a mile a minute before turning back to Aeron and Kiyo. "Aeron-san, go to class please, and wait for the Headmaster. Kiyo-chan, go with Kyo, he'll take you to your dorm." She stated this plainly before sending a calculated look at Kyo, who, understanding what she had just realized, nodded his head and moved up to stand beside Kiyo. "Go take care of it, I'll inform the Headmaster...and Sakura...do not leave a mess." He stated this in a cold and plain voice before taking Kiyo's wrist and pulling her away.

Sakura nodded and took off in a mad dash towards the tree line, her Anti-Vampire sword already in hand. So that's why he is always late, how could I have never noticed before? He must do it outside of our portal so he doesn't get caught, that means it's been going on for a long while, I never thought about how some of the Day Class take the short up through the woods...damn it. She clenched her teeth and picked up her speed. If anyone of those Day Class students had any fang marks, she would turn that teacher to dust, even if it were the last ting she did.

"To surround yourself with those whom you love and love you, is that such a bad thing? No, but remember that I will protect you no matter what; even if I have to break that promise."




Kiyoko narrowed her eyes at the male prefect as he called out to her, standing a little too close for her comfort. She didn't move though, keeping her own cobalt blue gaze on his own ash green. So the two weren't friends, didn't mean he had to be a jerk about it. Her gaze never faltered under his until he backed away, stating that he would cover patrols and for the Melanthe pure-blood to stay away from him. She snickered after the prefect and the Melanthe pure-bloods reaction. Even if the prefect didn't want to acknowledge it, it was obvious enough that the pure-blood held the boy in such light. She blinked at Melanthe's statement and offered him a warm smile.

"Of course I do Hare-san. Shiraga-san and you seem to be great friends," she stated, encouraging the friendship between the two. She partially did it because she knew it would annoy the male prefect, and she partially did it for her own satisfaction. Before she could say anything else, Aeron took off after Eonis and Kiyoko could only chuckle, however; she soon found herself being pulled by Sakura after the pure-blood. "Eh, Sakura-chan wait!" she called out as she continued to be dragged behind the shorter girl. Despite the height difference, Sakura still seemed to house a decent amount of strength to be able to pull Kiyoko along with her. She merely chuckled as her muscles relaxed, allowing herself to be chauffered by the shorter girl.

It was then that Kiyoko found herself in the presence of the male prefect and the pure-blood once more, however; the sight to behold them was rather incredulous. It caused her to chuckle at the scene before Sakura began to talk. She then grabbed Aeron's shirt and pulled him away from the male prefect and towards Kiyoko. She merely allowed the boy to fall where he was tossed. She couldn't risk touching him. Oh yes, she knew about the pure-bloods preferences when it came to things such as physical contact. Some of the night class students had mentioned it to her not that long ago so it was something she respected. And she wasn't one to disrespect someone's wishes. Why he didn't like being touched (Eonis was the only exception apparently) wasn't for her to ask. If he wanted to divulge such information, he would. As such, she spotted Sakura going for the pure-blood's ear and made a reach for the girl's hand.

"Ah, Sakura-chan, I don't believe Hare-san like's being touched," she stated as she placed her hand in place of Aeron's ear. Whether the girl heard her or not, she was now pulling Kiyoko by both of her hands. She didn't know her hand could feel like an ear to the female prefect, but she dismissed the thought. Sakura was her friend after all. Sakura released Kiyoko's wrist and Aeron's ear as she spoke about how to approach the male prefect next time. Kiyoko merely tried to keep a straight face. She didn't want to laugh at her friend as she was trying hard for the pure-bloods sake. When Sakura finished, something captured her attention, directing it to the forest in which Kiyoko could only follow Sakura's gaze. She spotted one of the night class teachers, one she'd recognized due to the many patrols she had accompanied Sakura on, much to the shorter girl's chagrin.

She didn't want anything to happen to the short girl, and besides, she came from a hunter family so she could protect herself if she needed to. She was brought out of her reverie when Sakura mentioned something about the male vampire known as Kyo (how odd they shared the same name and nickname) taking Kiyoko back to her dorm. She felt her wrist being gripped in a firm grasp, however; she twisted it slightly and managed to break from his grasp. She smiled at the vampire before giving an apologetic bow. Returning to her full height, she then scratched at her cheek nervously.

"Sorry Kyo-kun, but I can make it back on my own," she stated as she began to walk away, but stopped and cast a glance over her shoulder. She had this feeling in the bottom of her stomach that tonight wasn't going to end well for her friend, so she'd have to check up on her. As soon as she was out of Kyo's sight, she took off in the direction she had seen Sakura go and silently made her way through the forests' thick brush. She didn't seem to mind the few tugs at her school uniform as she finally reached Sakura. She kept her distance, keeping her blue gaze on the small prefect.

She might not have accepted the position as a prefect, and she might not have shown an ability to hold her own, but regardless, Kiyoko was not one to take threats lightly, especially towards those she cared about. Sakura was her friend, someone she wanted, no, needed to watch out for. Not only because of her illness, but because of Kiyoko's own selfish desire to keep the girl safe. Maybe it was in her blood? Whatever the reason, she took in soft, hushed breaths waiting for the vampire to make his first move. She would be ready to step in should it be required of her. Her attention was momentarily shifted from the golden brown haired girl as something soft rubbed against her arm. She glanced down, noticing the familiar presence of the one she called Shiranui: the white wolf of Cross Academy's forest. The deep rumbling of his voice could be felt even through his thick fur as his golden eyes peered up at Kiyoko.

"Are you here to help me keep an eye on her too?" she stated in a hushed whisper, rubbing the wolf behind his ear, eliciting a purring sound from the canine. Kiyoko had to bite her tongue to not laugh. Since when did canine's know how to purr? Only felines could do that. She continued to rub the wolf's ear as she kept her cobalt gaze on Sakura.

"This is the proof I have done something wrong in my past life. I got this vampire on my tail."




He knew that for a long time that the pure-blood was an idiot. This time it was official. The pure-blood does not know when to quit bothering him. Did he not just said to leave him the hell alone? Now, the idiot was able to sneak up on him and even embraced him from behind. Those slithery hands of the stupid vampire wrapped around his torso and he could feel the pure-blood's head being pressed on his back. If he was not even hearing things, there were a few moans of pleasure as the vampire rubbed against him. There was nothing enjoyable about this. Better yet, he could feel the hairs at the back of his neck stand. There was also the feeling of disgust covering his entire body. This was far enough.

"Get off!" Eon declared in anger as he grabbed hold of the pure-blood's arm and threw Aeron overhead with such strength. The ground appeared to have developed cracking patterns to signify this. Soon, the pure-blood was at ground on his back as the prefect loomed over him menacingly. Those eyes of ash green now seemed to look like ice blue from this angle. They were filled with animosity and to prove a point. Bloody Rose was drawn without hesitation. It was pointed at the pure-blood's face. "I have enough of your idiocy." Then, he fired a shot which reverberated throughout the woods where the birds flew in surprise and fear. Unfortunately for the prefect, the pure-blood seemed to have dodge it as the bullet landed on the dirt just a mere inch away from the idiot's head. Apparently, the stupid screamed in surprise and a bit of fear.

"Tch." Clicking his tongue, Eon proceeded to grab the pure-blood by the collar and was about to punch him into a bloody pulp when the idiot was taken from his grasp. This caused slight surprise on the male prefect but not long before, he heard Ito's voice. Looking down, he saw the other prefect who was able to pull the pure-blood by simple strength. Perhaps, this girl was not as sick as she believes she is. It even crossed his mind that Ito was just faking it for attention. Whatever it is, he really does not care. She was going to get rid of his annoyance then everything was right in his world by her. "Handle that idiot." He simply stated with annoyance probably due to the pure-blood as he returned Bloody Rose to its holster.

After doing so, he turned is back at them as he headed for the opposite direction. He did say that the woods would be his area of patrol which meant that Ito will cover the main grounds. Last time, he did it and there was no other way to describe it. He destroyed a lot of things due to the foolish pure-blood's over-excitement of seeing him. Why did that vampire fancied him? He does not know and is unwilling to know it. There are certain facts in this world that would be better off as a secret and part of the unknown.

Releasing a sigh, Eon continued walking. Normally, this area is free from any mischievous events. But there are rare cases, some of the Day Class students would use the woods as a perfect cover of sneaking around. The very fact that this place is perfect for doing forbidden matters covered by the thick foliage of the woods, it had become a priority of the prefects to ensure that nothing astray is happening around here. In addition, it provided him a proper reason to stay away from the Main Building. He could avoid the idiotic pure-blood which was technically a good day for him. Actually, he had discussed this with the Headmaster. But the old fart just told him that this would be a great opportunity for him. What opportunity?

There was nothing else but pure annoyance on his part. He was even ready to desecrate his oath as a prefect and even as a hunter just to eliminate that pure-blood. His patience has its limit and it was not as long as others have. It would be much better for him to be out on the field than to be cooped up here at the academy. This is not because he liked killing for he avoid sit as much as possible. It is the main reason why the Melanthe pure-blood was still alive and only suffered physical injuries a vampire could handle. In the end, he can think about killing, elimination, and erasure. But when it comes to it, he always never comes through unless in regards with mad vampires.

In any case, he had been left to his own devices without any kind of interruptions. This is why he liked doing things by himself. There was less hassles and no one to be bothered with. In addition, he is used to this kind of lifestyle. It was more odd for him to be surrounded by people or even be admired by them. He finds that very peculiar and rather troublesome in more ways than one. But, this is his mission. So, he has to do it one way or another. While he was thinking about such matters, he then sensed something unsettling in the air. His head snapped towards the direction where he could feel the greatest sense of distortion.

Soon enough, he found himself sprinting through the woods. He effectively dodged some of the shrubbery along the way. It was getting stronger that sense of foreboding. He must be getting close to the source of it. There was no assurance that this may be just a false alarm. He truly hoped it was if not, he would be forced to act. Pulling Godhand out of its holster, he readied himself for all eventualities. Then after a few twists and turns, he finally had finally arrived.

”May I ask one small favor from you,can you a keep a secret from me to you?”




There is a saying that no pain, no gain. He had always believed in that. Now, he was an adamant follower of that. Why? The prime example would be his unclear relationship with the male prefect, Eon Shiraga. Even when he tries to get closer to the boy, it would only cause apprehension and violence which is usually directed to him. Just like now. One moment. he was in bliss from finally touching the only being that would never fade. Eon's warmth was very comforting that he could not help but rubbed his face on the boy's back. It is only with this male prefect that could he understand the meaning of existence through substance and touch.

In the past, he would always be around people. Always in a crowd, yet he felt detached and untouched by the world around him. No one can touch him without grave consequences. It was like being a specter, a ghost, that no one can see. No one can hold. No one can truly believe that exists. He had been used to that kind of life until, Eon came into the picture. His reality shattered with just the slightest touch. A new series of possibilities was presented before his eyes. He should feel wary and completely fearful. But instead, he felt that he had been finally allowed something to have. So, there is no way he could just let go of that.

However, Eon proved to be a very difficult person to deal with. Because now, he found himself with his back on the ground. Looming above him, the male prefect was certainly pissed. Oh. no one had to inform him that his actions were greatly disliked by the boy. Well, it seemed that his very presence irritates the prefect. To prove this, the infamous Bloody Rose was pointed at him in a point-blank range. Wait, is he seriously going to kill him? It seemed he had finally made Eon cross the line. Luckily, he moved his head to the side which averted being hit but the ground near his head was smoking. It had received the shot meant for him. He could still feel the sting of resistance when the bullet passed his cheek with just a few centimeters away.

Inadvertently, he released a scream in surprise and with fear as well. Come one, he was almost killed which meant he would not be with Eon. Yes, it was his greatest concern. Seeing disappointment in the prefect's eyes that he did not become a pile of ash, he was lifted by the collar. It was clear he was going to be a punching bag which he had become for quite some time. But before a punch could connect with his skin, he felt himself being pulled away. Oh, he wondered who had such a strength to do that. Then, his question was answered when he fell back to the ground, landing on his bum.

The perpetrator was the female prefect. So, she was quite strong despite her short stature. Very weird. But, he did not think about that for long. For his attention shifted to the conversations being exchanged, he was going to be escorted by the little girl than by Eon. He did not want that and not because of something personal. It's just that he wanted Eon. Pouting much a like spoiled child who didn't get a birthday cake, he saw a hand approaching his ear. This caused red lights going on in his head as he was about to back away and tell the person to not touch him.

Good for him, another person stepped in. Oh, he did not noticed the red-haired Kiyoko. Well, he does not notice everything especially when Eon is around. Anyway, Kiyoko informed Sakura that he did not liked to be touched. He found it odd that she knew that preference of his. Thinking about it, the Night Class students seemed friendly with the red-haired girl. May be, they were the ones who told her. The odd thing, the female prefect seemed completely deaf to that and unaware as she walked on holding onto Kiyoko. Sakura seemed to believe that he was also being dragged along. It was one of the duh moments in life apparently.

Soon, the two girls vanished from his line of sight. But, he could still hear some of the conversation from the female prefect as if talking to him. The girl was either completely oblivious, stupid, or a comedian. In any case, he has no right to say that for he is like that when he is around Eon. Standing from his position now alone, he dusted his white uniform that were now stained by dirt and some leaves. There was not much he could do at this point. Removing his jacket, he threw it over his shoulder as smudges where everywhere. He then released a long sigh as he looked at the direction where Eon had disappeared into. Aeron wanted to follow the male prefect but he knew when enough was enough. There was no other choice but to return to his classes. The joy of classes.

It is not like he did not want to attend. Just that, he was not in the mood anymore. Releasing another long sigh, he contemplated the fact of skipping classes. He could just stay at the infirmary or return to the dormitory. But what kind of leader is he if he did that? In the end, he decided to go. It is not like he would be late because as the other prefect stated. The teacher was always late so, he walked at leisurely pace. But then, he noticed the said teacher walking passed him a 40 meters ahead of him. His sense of sight was capable of doing that and soon was followed by the short girl. Then, there was the red-hair trailing behind. Closing his eyes, it seemed his teacher would be late for their classes once more. If that was so, then there would be no choice by to fire the guy. Oh yes, fire the guy.

“When you have someone you hold dear to your heart, protect them with your life."





Sakura caught up to the teacher after what seemed like a life time. He stood in a small clearing with two of the Night Class Students, seemingly just talking, but she could feel his evil intent rolling off in waves. She ducked down into the bushes as the scene unfolded before her very eyes. The students laughed at something the teacher had said before they turned to leave, he moved forward, his nails forming into claws as the students turned their backs to him, but he had no intent on allowing them leave. So this is why he had been late so often, the bastard. Sakura all but flew from her hiding place, her sword pressed to the neck of his neck as her eyes narrowed. "Don't make a sound, just wait for them to leave." She hissed through clenched teeth. The older man tensed his body and turned his head ever so slightly to look at her. They stood like that for a good five minuets before they both seemed to jump into action at the same time. He spun around and swung his hand at her slicing into her cheek as she jumped backwards and held her sword in, ready for the next attack. "This Academy isn't the right place for monsters like you, if you try and fight me further, I will not hesitate to end your life." Kura's rage rolled off of her in waves, she couldn't believe he would try to feed off of his own students, the very thought made her blood boil.





Kiyoko watched the events unfold as Sakura flew to the man. She felt her breath hitch in her throat as Sakura placed the sword to the teachers throat. Shiranui stared with bored eyes, a yawn escaping his throat as he shifted his gaze to Kiyoko. He could see the worry playing throughout her eyes as Sakura suddenly jumped with the man. She felt her hand twitch as she continued to watch the events unfold. She wouldn't give up her spot, not yet. She knew Sakura could handle things from here, but should her services be required, Kiyoko wouldn't hesitate to act. Shiranui, on the other hand, mentally sighed, watching the play between the human and vampire. It was interesting to say the least, but he was growing tired of it. With a final glance at Kiyoko, Shiranui left her side, not before nudging it to signal his departure.

"Be quiet Nui. I shall see you," she stated in a hushed whisper as the wolf disappeared from sight. She sighed and then returned her attention to Sakura. With every movement the two made, Kiyoko could feel the air escaping her lungs. Sakura was going to over excerpt herself and this was causing Kiyoko a great deal of worry. Her body wouldn't last much longer in this prolonged fight. There was a great chance that Sakura would end up killing herself if this continued further. She needed to do something. And then, she saw it. The Teacher lunged at Sakura while the girl was down. Without much of a thought, Kiyoko felt her body fly through the air, forcing herself to stand in between Sakura and the teacher.

"Sakura!" she shouted as the teacher pierced through her stomach. She could feel his claws miss her vital organs and as such, she would be fine. But the shock through her body caused a pool of blood to spit from her mouth. A smile placed itself on her lips as she grasped onto the vampire's arm, holding it in a grasp with such strength she hadn't known she possessed. Of course, she could feel the fatigue settling in as the loss of such a large amount of blood was causing her vision to blurry. Figuring out the fatigue, the teacher used this momentum to pull his arm out of her grasp and stomach. The lure, the scent, she could see the blood lust in his eyes as she fell to her knee's. A light chuckle escaped her lips as she turned to Sakura.

"I...told...you...to...be...care...ful," she stated through labored breaths before smiling at the girl. She clutched her stomach as the pain finally registered in her mind. She winced before her world seemingly went black.






Sakura's body was growing tired and weaker, she couldn't fight for as long as she should be able to, but she had used up so much strength eariler while messing with the others, now it was all taking it's toll on her. Each attack the teacher sent at her, she blocked easily, but he could see her body growing weaker, see the life fading a bit more from her eyes as the illness set it deeper. He made a move she couldn't follow, his leg shooting up in a blur and kicking her in the stomach, the mere force of the blow threw her backwards to the ground. She curled in on herself for a moment as she spit the coppery mix of blood and saliva to the ground. Seeing her moment of weakness, the man lunged in for the kill, not caring that she was a student, let alone a human. Each second that passed felt like a year, and slowly dread swept over her very being as Sakura closed her eyes in defeat. So this is how it ends...I never would have thought something else other than the illness would kill me...oh well...it'll be nice to see my parents again. Kura relaxed her body and prepared herself for the attack that would lure her to the never ending darkness, but it never came, instead a voice reached her ears along with the sound of ripping flesh. "Sakura!" Her eyes flew open as she stared in horror at the sight she never wanted to see.

Kiyoko stood in front of her, blood at her feet and a vampire in front of her. No... She watched as the man pulled his arm out of her fresh wound, leaving her to fall to her knees. No.... Her body shook violently as she stared at her best friend, she person she considered her sister, bleed out n front of her. Sakura didn't miss the chuckle that escaped her friends mouth as she turned towards her, nor did she miss the blood lust that was building up inside the teachers eyes, but she couldn't move, she couldn't do anything, she was frozen in place, horrified because her worst fear was coming to life. "I...told...you...to...be...care...ful," Kiyo spoke through ragged breaths as a smile spread on her face, clearly proud that she had been able to save her friend in time, before a look of pain crossed her face, her eyes glazed over, and she fell forward, towards Sakura, who caught her with numb arms. Everything felt frozen, she couldn't move, she couldn't breath, all she could do is stare up at the man as Kiyoko lay in her arms. Seconds passed as a strange silence filled the air, but there was something else.. something deep down within Sakura...what was this?

"I...told...you...to...be...care...ful,"

Rage, searing hot rage exploded from Sakura's stomach and expanded through her body as her mind registered what had just happened. Gently she laid her friend on the ground before standing, her sword clutched in her hand as she look up at the man, the rage showing through her eyes as her aura grew darker and made the air thicker. "I'll rip your head from your shoulders." She growled before moving faster than before, her whole body a blur. She moved as he backed away from her, his eyes growing wide at the realization that he had just let loose a monster within the smaller girl. He turned to run, but she was already there to deliver a round house kick right to his face, sending him soaring over Kiyo's body and into a tree. He slowly picked himself up as she calmly walked towards him, her sword being clutched so tightly that her knuckles were white. "You deserve to have a long, drawn out death." She whispered harshly before stabbing him in the shoulder. His pain filled scream echoed off of the trees and around the forest. Kura paid no heed to his cries as she lifted the sword once more and slammed it down into his stomach, nearly the same wound that Kiyo had suffered. "No one hurts my nakama and gets away with it." A snarl escaped her throat as she lifted the sword one more time, and drove it straight through his heart. He stared up at her for a moment, her scream dying off in the back of his throat, before his body exploded into dust.

Sakura let her sword fall to the ground before turning to walk towards Kiyo, who she collapsed beside, gripping her friends blood stained hand tightly as tears escaped her eyes. She had used up to much energy during that fight, there was no possible way she could carry her much bigger friend back all the way to the infirmary before she collapsed. It was moments like this when she hated being so weak, when she hated the illness, it was all because she couldn't protect her friend, that's all she wanted, but she couldn't even help now that the fight was over. She was so useless. "I'm so sorry Kiyo-chan...please...please don't die..." She allowed the tears to fall freely as her gaze began to grow blurry.

"Idiots surround me, it's a miracle I'm not like them. But, miracles are what makes life a more worth it.




Ashes and a great amount of blood met his eyes. This was not something unexpected but at the same time, it was downright reckless. The Headmaster asked him once why he disliked having a designated partner. They were more troublesome than being useful. It is why he had always taken the patrols outside away from the main building. Other than the obvious reason of avoiding the stalker pure-blood of his which everyone was led to believe, he had been trailing the teacher all this time but making sure the targeted victims were unharmed. That is why there were no reported victims. It is why the perpetrator had become a bit restless due to the subtle meddling. He was just waiting for the right time to nab the guy. But then, this happens.

Putting back the Godhand back to its holster, Eonis approached the two females on the ground. Ito’s friend was clearly not in the best of conditions. Her wound was not fatal but it did not mean she cannot die due to the loss of blood. In short, she needed medical treatment. For now, he has to stop the wound from further bleeding. Taking a few patches from his pockets, he placed them on the girl’s wound. They were hemostatic bandages that can stop severe hemorrhage. Once, it is secured. He directed his attention to the other female in the area. This is why he preferred working alone on most things. There are fewer hassles.

As for the other prefect, she had reached her limits with that body of hers. It is fine that she does her job but when it intervenes with his. There was no way he would not complain about this. She had become a liability he needed to take care of. It was clear as day. She needed the same attention as her friend. Glancing at the spot where the teacher died, he was unable to interrogate the man liked he had planned. How disappointing although, he cannot blame Ito for her actions towards the criminal vampire. The guy deserved it.

“This is why I told you to take care of the babysitting duty.” Eonis noted towards the other prefect as he took hold of Ito’s friend first. The red-haired girl was still in danger even when he had stopped the bleeding. She needed immediate help. Even if this girl came from a hunter family, she was still officially a civilian. An innocent caught in an ugly cross-fire that could have been prevented. He cradled the girl in his arms and wondered what to do with Ito. There is no way he could carry both girls. But then again, he has to. Leaving one of them behind, it was not an option at all. Somehow, his trouble was doubled. It was all because of a newcomer in the form of a pure-blood.

The scent of blood was thick and alluring. Why wouldn't it be? It was blood, the nirvana of their appetite, the food of the vampires. But, those eyes of gold and blue never wavered for a bit. They were rather extremely calm as if, such a site was normal for him. Without asking and just by looking, Aeron already knew what happened here. It was complete chaos. Looking at the two females, he was fighting the urge to ask if they were okay. From the looks of it, they were not. So, there was only one other question to ask. “Need help?” It is true that his rather touchy and intimate gestures drive the male prefect away. But, he just can’t help it. Anyway, he still has his serious moments.

Eonis was silent. He did not want to even be near the pure-blood at the moment. However, he does not have that many choices. “Carry Ito.” Aeron was not right if he had heard right. The male prefect just ordered him to carry Ito. It is true he had offered his services but carrying meant touching. That was not a good idea at all. “You should do that.” He stated with a bright smile. If it was possible to kill someone now, he would have done it right here. This idiot asked if he needed help when he said to carry Ito. The fool told him to do that himself. “Just get lost! Make sure the night class does not come here until this scene is properly cleaned-up.”

There was no doubt about it. Eonis was angry at him again. But, Aeron cannot help it. If he did what was asked of him, Ito would be good as dead. But seeing the male prefect’s situation, there was not much of a choice in the matter. Before he could respond, Eonis was trying to make things work with two girl being carried by him. “…I’ll do it.” He stated as he was now before Ito’s form. Ash blue eyes looked at the idiotic pure-blood for quite some time before nodding as an answer. It was clear Aeron had just buried himself to eternal slumber. Fortunately, he was wearing gloves. He would be apologizing early because it was not going to be a comfortable ride at all with him.

It was either humorous or downright mean. Eonis could not stop shaking his head from time to time. He does not care if the idiotic pure-blood dislikes Ito. As long as, the female prefect is sent to the infirmary. Finally arriving, Aeron was carrying Ito like a grocery bag. His gloved hand grabbed onto the female prefect’s upper attire and walked with much distance from Eonis as requested. At the same time, Aeron was trying to keep himself from being touched. For now, it seemed effective. They soon reached the main building.

“Drop her.” Eonis stated as they were now in the infirmary. He had already informed the doctor there who immediately went to treat Ito’s friend and his fellow prefect. Aeron was obedient and simply dropped Ito on the bed. After doing so, he quickly rushed towards the Eonis. “I did good! Where is my reward.” Aiming to embrace him again, Eonis dodged to the side. Due to that action, Aeron imprinted his face on the wall with such clear shape. “I never said anything, you idiot.” After saying that, Eonis left the infirmary knowing full well, the doctor would handle it. As for Aeron, he pouted miserably and took a deep breath. He had matters to attend to, clean-up. Taking one last look at the girls, he softly whispered. "Take care." Then, he left the room leaving the females in the hands of the doctor and nurse. Just like that, the sky was already dark. Night has now enveloped Cross Academy.

"Sometimes it feels as if my doors keep closing on me, and that I can't open them. It just means there is a new door opening for you. Will you go through it?"




Cherry blossoms fell from the hands of the tree's, surrounding a young boy. Petals fell into the abyss of his hair, bringing a new color to the void as blue eyes stared at the scene. The young boy then turned to peer into the blue eyes with a matching set of carmine brown. A smile tugged at the boys face as a bloodied hand offered itself to the boy. Glancing at the hand, Kiyoko noticed it was hers. Was she dreaming? This had to be a dream, so why was her hand bloodied? Reaching up to touch the side of her neck, the feeling of torn flesh glided through her fingers as the boy's smile widened.



A pair of obsidian eyes glanced at the scene. Blood, that blood, covered the area in a dangerous scent. The eyes never left the people surrounding the fallen form of the two girls. They then glanced in particularly at the black-haired youth. A deep chuckle resonated through the shadows before it died upon the cool breeze. They had finally been located. This was grand news indeed. It means that he can finally return. He who had been banished to that god-forsaken place, could finally take his rightful place where he belonged.

"In due time princess. You and that shadow will return," the voice spoke before it faded, almost as if it was never there to begin with. The words, however; did not pass by deaf ears. White ears flattened against the head as Shiranui bore his fangs, a menacing growl resonating through his body. There was no doubt about it that the voice could only belong to him. That guy his master left in charge. Shiranui did not like this one bit. Although he was tasked for looking out for the girl, his thoughts and opinions varied greatly from his masters. He wished to protect her from harm, even if it meant going against his masters wishes, however; he couldn't. He was bound to an oath he swore, and now it was eating him up.

He had just arrived at the scene when a scream and the scent of blood filled the air. He knew he shouldn't have left the two to that teacher. Even though the teacher wasn't exactly a threat, he still managed to injure the one person whom Shiranui was supposed to keep an eye on. This only further angered and caused the wolf to growl and snarl, his eyes floating over the scene as he watched the ash float in the air. The sound of a spark cackled in the background as the nearby tree snapped and fell into a fiery embrace. The embers floated around as Shiranui watched the flames eat at the ashes once more.




Kiyoko's eyes snapped open, and immediately she regretted it. An insurmountable pain ruptured through her abdomen as she cried out in the pain. A doctor was by her side immediately, trying to shove something in her face, but she refused whatever it was they were trying to give her. Her mind felt like it was on fire and her stomach felt as if she'd been kicked so many times and then pierced with several long needles. The doctor urged her to take the medicine that had been offered to her previously and she finally obliged. It didn't take away the pain she felt, but whatever it was, it would be kicking in soon. She squeezed her eyes shut as she grabbed at her stomach. The events played over in her mind as she tried to control her breathing. This pain wasn't something she wasn't accustomed to. Her sister had accidentally stabbed her once and it was a similar sensation, however; being stabbed at once with multiple sharp objects was not something Kiyoko wanted to feel again.

Wait? How did she get into the infirmary? She opened her eyes once more and tossed her head to the side, spotting Sakura not far from her before her lips pursed into a frown. She seemed to be passed out, probably due to pushing herself passed her limits. This caused the frown to deepen on Kiyoko's face. She could have did something sooner. She wasn't exactly a helpless civilian, she as raised by hunters for pete's sake! They had taught her, or rather she learned, how to defend herself from vampires. How could she have been so careless? If she had re-acted sooner instead of standing in the shadows, Sakura would be okay and wouldn't have over exerted herself. She wouldn't have this wound in her stomach either. Although it wasn't fatal, it still hurt.

She released a slow breath as she turned to face the ceiling. There was no point in dwelling on it now since the pain would still be about. She would be sore for the next few days, probably a week or so. But that didn't matter so long as Sakura was safe. She would bare this wound with pride knowing she was able to prolong her friends life, even if she had recklessly endangered her own. That, however, was what friends did...right? They protected each other from harm and anything that threatened their lives. She shook the thoughts from her mind as another bout of pain ran through her body. She cringed and whined before relaxing as it passed. She glanced out the window and noticed the moon. A frown marred her face. It wasn't it's usual bright bluish white hue. It was colored a deep red. Before she could linger on the thoughts any longer, a voice captured her attention.

"You should thank Prefect Shiraga and the Melanthe pure-blood. They brought you here," Kiyoko turned to spot a soft smile on a nurse's face. She held a couple of towels and bandages in her arms as she opened her deep brown eyes to Kiyoko who weakly smiled in response. She could still feel the affects of the blood loss and her mind was currently fading in and out, especially with that dream she just had. She wasn't one for knowing what dreams meant, but she couldn't help but feel such a strong feeling that it was true. Was this something she had forgotten? Something that was erased from her past? There it was again, that itching feeling burning at the back of her mind. She tried to close it off, but it only grew. Why was she forced to forget much of her childhood? She couldn't understand much of anything and she couldn't fathom a reason why her mother would do such a thing.

"Thank you, I will do that as soon as I am able to," Kiyoko finally replied as she closed her eyes for a bit. "How is Sakura-chan? Is she okay?" Kiyoko asked as she directed her attention towards the nurse once more. The frown that settled upon her face caused a slight worry in Kiyoko's being. The nurse set the towels down before sitting next to Kiyoko's bed. She kept her gaze on her hands, and this caused a fear to bubble up within Kiyoko. Had Sakura finally succumbed to the illness? Had she truly over exerted herself in this fight with the teacher? So many questions and fears floated through Kiyoko's mind that she almost missed the words that came from the nurse.

"She's lucky to still be alive," she had stated. Alive. Sakura was still alive. This was a relief, but the dread still lingered in the back of Kiyoko's mind. If Sakura continued this course, then she would undoubtedly kill herself way before her time. Perhaps...perhaps she would talk to the headmaster and see if she could swap places with Sakura. If she could protect and prolong her friends life by becoming a prefect in her stead, then she would do it. But she needed to heal properly first. Then she could speak with the Headmaster. Also, she'd have to find a proper way to thank Eonis and Aeron for their help.

Although she wasn't entirely sure why they helped in the first place. Eonis she could understand, and at the same time couldn't. He was a prefect so it was his job to protect the students, but Aeron? What was his reasoning? Perhaps a request from Eonis. This thought caused her to mentally laugh. Even though Eonis didn't want to acknowledge the pure-bloods feelings, it was still a sight to behold whenever they interacted. Maybe she'll cook something for them. After all, what a better way to say thank you than by food?

"Do you fear death? Such an odd question..."





Sakura was not comfortable, but then again how could you be when you were dead? Was she dead? She cracked her eyes open and was met by the sight of an Angel. Oh...So there are Angels...that's nice. She made a strangled noise while trying to move around in the stiff arms that held her, but she couldn't get her body to move. If I'm dead, shouldn't I be able to move? Why was this Angel holding her in such a strange way?

She squinted her eyes at the fair haired male that was carrying her, he was truly beautiful with his sharp features and porcelain colored skin, however that wasn't what caught her attention through, it was his eyes, one gold, one blue, they were enchanting and they made her sleepy again. I'm going crazy.. She opened her mouth to say something, to try to gain the Angel's attention, but no noise came out, and then darkness took her again. At least I got to see an Angel before I died Sakura sighed as her body went limp once more.





"Do you fear death?"

Sakura turned around to face Kyo, who stood five feet away from her. They both stood in the middle of an open field as snow fell slowly all around them. It was an odd question to be asked, but there again maybe it wasn't. Her days were limited anyway, so it was honestly a good question, but she had avoided it for so long. Death, the ending to all things on earth, Sakura didn't believe in life after death, she didn't believe in souls going to a happy place, or forever wandering the earth, she believed in a eternal abyss, like a black hole. That is where she figured she would go one day, not to heaven or hell, but just...a dark, cold place. Sakura was sure that's where her parents were now, in a cold dark place with no way out. That's death...

"Do you fear death?"

Kyo repeated the question while stepping closer to the smaller girl. He wanted to know her answer since she only have a year left to live. He had been with Sakura for quite some time now, but he had never heard her admit to fearing death, and part of him was sure she never would. She was to strong and noble to tell someone else that she was afraid of something, because she didn't want others to endanger their lives for her when she was scared, she couldn't let others know her weakness or they would end up getting hurt trying to help her, so why she had decided to be truthful, Kyo would never fully understand.

"Maybe a little at first...but not anymore. I've seen enough death to know when to fear it and when to not fear it, after awhile people just grow tired, not just physically, but mentally. I know it's not normal for someone so young to be mentally tired, but I am."

Sakura fell backwards into the snow covered ground. It was cold but at the same time she felt safe and at peace, with the snow slowly falling from above her, and the snow on the ground around her, it was very peaceful, it was in that moment that Sakura decided she would die in the snow when her time came, it would be so peaceful that she would just be able to let it all go, close her eyes and drift off, away from her body and this world and to the abyss that was waiting so eagerly to greet her.

"I'm not scared of dying...I'm just going to be sad that I'll miss so much more than everyone else...I'll never get married, I'll never have children and I'll never get to watch them grow up and get married, I'll never even get to finish school or..."


I'll never get my revenge...

She sighed quietly and closed her eyes. That's right, she'll never get to find those Vampires that killed her family and she'll never get to make them pay for what they had done to her. She already would have such a short life, why would anyone want to put her into more pain by taking away her only light? It was when her parents died that she gave up on the 'light at the end of the tunnel' their deaths had ripped a hole into her chest, and it had left her broken in her own darkness, she no longer had tears left to cry over their deaths through.

"I'll never get to grow old and grey with someone who I would love even after death...I'll never get that..."

Despite her words, her voice never wavered, it stayed strong and steady. However Kyo picked up something in her tone that no one else would be able to, regret. She wasn't scared of death after all, just not being able to live. Poor fragile little human. If only she knew there was another option...Well honestly she did know, but she refused. Sakura didn't want to become an animal of the night, she didn't want to have to live in the darkness like himself. It was honestly sad that such a blazing life was going to give up so soon. She sighed quietly before approaching her. he had removed his own jacket and wrapped it around the smaller girl before scooping her up into his arms.

"Where are we going, Kyo?" She said this while yawning, it meant that the walk to the clearing had taken a toll on her, the sleepiness in her eyes showed the Vampire holding her that the illness was already eating her alive. How sad.

"We need to get you back to the infirmary so you can take your medicine." He said this in a surprisingly gentle tone that he reserved for the small girl in his arms. "You can sleep now, it's a long walk back." He murmured softly while clutching her closer. Kyo wouldn't let any harm befall this girl while she was in his charge. It was the promise he had agreed upon, and the promise he would take to his death bed.

"Thank you..."






Sakura slowly opened her eyes as moonlight cast in through the open window of her room in the Infirmary. She must have pushed herself to far...how had she gotten there? "You should thank Prefect Shiraga and the Melanthe pure-blood. They brought you here," The voice wasn't directed towards Sakura, but instead towards someone else in the room next to her own. So it had been Eon and Aeron that had brought them here....Aeron had been the Angel? Brilliant, she really was losing her mind. "Thank you, I will do that as soon as I am able to," So the nurse was talking to Kiyo, that made sense. At least her friend was okay, that's all that mattered.

"How is Sakura-chan? Is she okay?" Sakura's heart twisted at the desperation that was laced with Kiyo's voice, it made her feel so helpless, even through she had saved her friend from the teacher, she hadn't been able to bring her back to the infirmary herself, she hadn't been able to be there by her friends said. waiting for her to wake, and she would never be able to save her from the pain of her illness.

There was a long pause before the nurse answered, but Sakura already knew the answer. "She's lucky to still be alive," Yes, yes she was lucky to be alive. She only have a month and two days left to live, and that would be the end of Sakura Ito, no more laughs or smiles or even fights, only a corpse. She sighed and stood from her bed. She was still dressed in her school uniform, which for the most part, was still in tact, through she did have some blood on her white button up shirt, she hid it with her coat. The only way anyone would be able to tell that she had been in a fight was the bandage below her right eye that hid the nasty gash she had gotten for being to slow, and the slow forming bruises on her knees, right shoulder, and her left side.

Sakura ran a hand through her hair, trying to fix it as best as possible, before stumbling over to the open window, and jumping right out. She may be ill, and half dead on her feet, but she still had a job as a prefect of Cross Academy, and she was not going to allow Eonis to handle patrol all by himself while she was still alive. Once Kura's feet hit the ground, she started off in a light jog, only stumbling five times, and only having to stop for a breather twice.

"Being alone is preferable, I dislike the responsibility of taking care others because my hands is already full with just myself.”




"I like the moon and somehow, it reminds me of you, Eonis." A beautiful girl with long purple hair and a pair of tantalizing purple-blue eyes filled with gentleness gazed at a little boy with black hair and ash green eyes. "Me? How so Mana?" But instead of an answer, he earned a very painful experience and a good measure of scolding. His cheeks were pinched strongly. Then, they were stretched to possible lengths and directions. "How many times am I going to tell you!? Call me, onee-chan! I'm much older than you kid!" To further emphasize this, his cheeks were stretched and played further. This kind of conversation always pops between them as he would always call her as simple as Mana. It is not because of disrespect. There was another reason for him in doing so.

When his cheeks were finally released from its punishment, he stuck out his tongue at her and then ran away while shouting. "No way! You're Mana! Mana! Mana!" Without further ado, she ran after him in irritation but with good fun in mind. They were like that as they played a game of tag along the shore of the sea. Everything was perfect on their end especially his. There was nothing else he wanted or wished to be. This moment was enough for him. He believed that he had found his sole purpose in life. It was to make her happy and keep her safe. He strongly believed that but when an explosion echoed at the horizon. The glass of happiness he held broke into thousand of pieces.




This is why he despised the night and its moon. But at the same time, he liked the night and the looming moon above. What a contradiction, it is. The memory where he lost everything and the memory where he found his place blended into a series of what became of him. Shaking his head, he removed his eyes from looking at the evening sky. He had still some areas left to patrol and to make certain of. It was not something he could complain about. He is used to such things. Actually, he finds it more worthwhile than having another prefect with him. What was the word he was looking for? Efficient, that was the word. Ito was more of a distraction than a means of help really.

He does not care if she breaks her body at her own choice or whatever it may be. It is her life not his to begin with. But, he finds it outwardly idiotic. Saying she does not want to be a problem when she is one. More so when, she disregards her own limits which brings more trouble than solution. There was nothing poetic and admirable in doing such things. It was downright a waste of time. In any case, he was really the type to never care about anyone else since that day. He could hardly care if she ever keeled over before him as long as it does not disrupt his job and mission, there would no problem on his part.

As for the other casualty, he simply did what was expected of him as a prefect and a hunter. It was a civic duty more than anything else. However, he could deduce now how Ito and that red-haired girl became friends. They were the same. Anyway, the doctor would be able to handle those girls. It would be far better if they both stayed there for a very long time, There were less troubles. Perhaps, those two were trouble-magnet which makes it more preferable for him to steer clear out of their way. Releasing another sigh, he continued walking along the trail while looking around for any questionable activities of Cross Academy's students.

Despite how impossible it may be, he had let the stupid pure-blood Melanthe to handle the clean-up. After all, it falls on the jurisdiction of the Night Class which means, it is that idiot's responsibility. Moreover, there was no way he would have himself work with that fool. The deal with the girls being delivered to the infirmary was an entirely different matter. There was no other choice. Speaking of which, he had reported to the Headmaster earlier about what happened and the death of a Night Class teacher. The head-honcho stated that a new teacher would be hired and an official report will be sent to the Association. It only means that he would be submitting a written report. He hated doing paperworks but it was part of his responsibility.

Stopping on his tracks, he felt something. He was not sure whether it was real or not in terms of feelings. Furthermore, he was not certain if it was a female or male at that. But, it felt liked he were being ogled at which was wrong in many accounts. At the same time, he hated those kind of things. Plus, those mysterious eyes made it feel like something or someone was assessing him. Looking around, he could not sense anything harmful or mischievous intents. Perhaps, it was just a simple hallucination. He must be very tired or stressed out which was a feat. Still, he should investigate and add this to his report just for good measure. Spotting a short branch, he pulled himself up effortlessly and was now on the top of it.

Eonis had a great view above this old and tall tree. It was quite large but as for age, he was not certain as there are no data available at the moment. Even with his vantage point on top of the highest branch, he could not see anything else that he liked. On the contrary, he witnessed another reckless and idiotic act of the other prefect. Ito was not even worth of any effort on his part. But because it impedes his mission, he had to resort in making sure that no more troubles would come. In the end, it was quite useless as the other prefect continued being a nuisance. What good will she do walking around this hour with such a body that hardly recovered? What if she gets into a fight again? She would not even last and he would have to intervene. "Stupid girl." He noted with irritation as he jumped down from the tree. If she wanted to die so much, he would not stop or do anything to aid her. Let her die as she pleased. With that, he walked towards the opposite direction far from the other prefect. He did not need another headache.

”Hunger may be insatiable. Fear may be maddening. But, my wrath is unstoppable. My forgiveness is rare.”




Before he entered Cross Academy, The Headmaster informed him that the jurisdiction of the Night Class and all of the vampires were under the responsibility of one person. It was somewhat a makeshift monarchy. He did not mind following or listening to another. Most of his life had been in that case. All he cared was to be closed to that one person who gave him a sense of existence. But, he would never have known that he would be the so-called ruler of the night class. In short, everything that had happened with the tardy teacher was his duty to clean and to fix.

First, he had addressed the night class students to reign themselves. The scent of blood fluttered so strongly because of the large amount that was spilled. He could tell from simply looking they were controlling themselves from the tell-tale signs of the hunger. He asked one of the noble vampires to oversee everyone to the dormitory. Classes will be dismissed for now. Of course, his trust was not something to be taken lightly as the students followed his wishes. Even if he appears carefree and amiable, Aeron was still a pure-blood who knows his authority.

Then, Aeron proceeded to the faculty room. It was impossible for such a forbidden act to be done alone. Moreover, it was highly unlikely for the other teachers to have not noticed. The logical conclusion, someone was backing that felon. He intends to find out. "I suggest to reveal yourself. It would be for the best." The way he spoke those words lack its usual cheerfulness. He was serious as those eyes of blue and gold held a cold and harden gaze. The teacher who have gathered felt fear and looked among themselves. No one wanted to be punished and no one wanted to make the pure-blood irritated.

Seconds turned into minutes. That was enough as Aeron moved from his position through the crowd of teachers whom parted as he has his eyes honed on one. "Everyone else out." He stated as the others quickly exited the room except for the one before him. It was a female teacher and the one who teaches Ethics. "I gave you a chance." He stated as the female immediately went down to her knees and beg for forgiveness. It was a natural thing to do when one does not want to die. Everyone does this at some point. "Forgive me Aeron-sama!" The woman wailed in fear and guilt. "You're my responsibility."

Biting one of the fingertip of his right hand gloves, he removed it in such a seductive manner. One would wonder if he was enticing the woman or anyone which was impossible for they were alone. "You're not sorry for what you've done. I can tell. You liked it." The woman's eyes widened in surprise from the words that left Aeron's lips. It was then he placed his hand free of the glove on her face. "You're fired." It was then the woman felt her body slowly disintegrating and her life being sucked out of her body. "Ae--ron---sa--ma--" Soon, the woman was nothing more but a pile of ash.

His form was surrounded by a subtle white light and his eyes were a bit glazed. Aeron had taken another life making it as his own and along with it, the memories. He was absolutely right. The woman was not sorry at all. Releasing a small sigh, he wore his glove once more and exited the room. There was still the manner with the clearing. He had informed the Headmaster and so did Eon. The man said that a crew will be sent to clean the place up. Traces must not be seen by any of the Day Class. He agrees to that wholeheartedly. The existence of vampires should be limited to stories and legends. As of now, the humans are not prepared for it.

In any case, he went back to the scene of the crime. Aeron was not able to check up on things when he was there before. His attention was on Eon and then the two girls who needed help. Exiting the main building, he had already returned to his jovial and rather amiable self. The Night Class should be back to the Moon Dormitory by now. He had implied that they should stay still there until further notice. It better than having them roam about with the scent of fresh blood still clinging heavily on the air. He could still smell the sweetness and delicacy it has. But, its allure does not hold him like it had to others. May be, because he had been existing long before any of them which meant he had great self-control or his hunger is not pronounced as others of his kind. It might be due to his ability. All he has are self-made conclusions.

Despite his longevity, Aeron remains uncertain about himself. He is still clueless to what he is truly capable of or who he is meant to be or what is his purpose being here in this world. Nothing is definite for him. But somehow. he felt himself change when he met Eon and when he had began to attend this school. Slowly, he could feel something creaking inside of him as it started to move. Anyway, he should have no problems with the vampires unless that other pure-blood intend to create mischief. Unless, it would not harm anyone on a physical level. He would not say anything about it. After all, he really did not like to intervene with anyone's personal preferences.

But life seemed to be quite on a roll for today. Before he reached the intended destination, there before him was the female prefect. She was not supposed to be feeling well, right? At the same time, she looked very pale. Aeron was pretty sure that she was out and about without the doctor's consent. Either she does not like being in the infirmary or she was a workaholic, those were his two guesses. "You should be resting, Ito-san."
He started as he stopped before the girl with an acceptable distance. "The Night Class are dismissed early."
Informing the female prefect, as he looked at her carefully with those two-colored eyes of his.

"Expect the unexpected."





Sakura was expecting a lot of things to happen as she walked slowly around her patrol area, she expected to run into Eon, since he most likely figured he would have the whole patrol tonight, she had expected to maybe run into the nurses and doctors that were most likely looking for her now, she had even expected to run into Kuro, however, what she had not expected was to run into Aeron. Sakura had been stumbling her way along, her head tilted back so she could stare up at the full moon, when she heard more footsteps. The had stopped and listened for a moment, but they were awfully calm for panicked Nurses or Day Class students who were out past curfew, that most likely meant whoever was walking towards her was a Night Class student skipping classes, or the Headmaster walking about, maybe he was helping with the rounds?

Sighed she lolled her head back around so she was facing forward, and blinked twice, because she had not been expecting Aeron to be standing in front of her. Had he said something about resting? She blinked a few more times as if just realizing that she was still out walking patrol, when Aeron spoke once more, this time informing her that the Night Class had been let out earlier than usual. She frowned at this, because it was most likely her fault, they were now lacking a teacher, and it was because she had stabbed him through the heart...and the shoulder...and the stomach...She sighed again and shrugged her shoulders tiredly. "There's no real point in me resting, I don't want to spend my last month in a bed, let alone in the infirmary." Sakura explained in a quite tone before glancing at the area around them. How far was she from her dorm? Surly not that far...

Suddenly Sakura's head snapped back towards Aeron. She had to tilt her head to be able to catch a glimpse of his miss-match eyes of his,but one glimpse was all she needed to be reminded of him carrying her back to the infirmary and helping Eonis. If anyone finds out I thought he was an Angel I'll never live it down. Sakura grimaced at the mere thought before smiling the smallest of smiles up at Aeron. "Thank you for bringing me to the infirmary Aeron-san, if you hadn't been there Eonis-sama would have had to take Kiyoko-chan to the infirmary and came back for me but by then I would have..." The frown had returned to her face as she looked down. She would have died in that clearing, and it was all her fault. She had rushed into things without informing anyone else other then Kuro, she could have very well gotten Kiyo and herself killed, and it was all her fault.

Suddenly rushed footsteps came pounding down on the grown not to far behind them, it was clearly the Nurses and Doctors, and all they needed to do was turn the corner in order to find where she had run off to. "Hide!" She squeaked in a panicked voice before grabbing the bigger boys sleeve and tugging him towards the bushes. "Please, I don't want them to see me!" She looked up with pleading eyes as the footsteps got louder along with the voices. Sakura hated doctors, but not as much as she feared them, it was a stupid fear yes, but she had her reasons. Doctors had been the people to tell her that her parents were dead, doctors were the people to tell her that she would die, doctors were the people that had strapped her down to the cold metal table when she was five and forced her to take medicine and go through several surgery's that way they could gain more information on her illness, doctors had ruined her life. "Please!" She whispered again more urgent in her voice than before as she tugged on his sleeve once more, all strength from earlier that day had left Sakura and now all she could do was stare up at the Pure-Blood with large, pleading, frightened eyes. She did not want to have to go back to that infirmary, they had told her last time she was there that if she ever slipped out again they would tie her to the bed, and she would rather drop dead then and there then allow that to happen ever again in her life.

”They say that light shines brightest when surrounded by darkness. I think it shines brightest when someone makes the leap to reach for it.”




This girl was really weird and not in a bad way. But, it depends on how a person look at it. For Aeron, it was an amusing oddness. She clearly was not right on the head noticing the haziness of her eyes. But, he did notice the frown she had when he informed her about the Night Class being dismissed for the night. Could she possibly think, it was her fault? It was bound to happen soon enough. Still, she was truly reckless in taking such a desperate vampire not to be taken in alone. He was about to say something about that. The girl even being a prefect should pay heed of her health. After all, health is wealth as they say. That was when she heard her words that was inconceivable to human hearing. But, he was not human.

Last month? Did she mean that she was going to transfer to another school or something? Despite that, Aeron does not see that as a good reason to plunge into a war without being aptly prepared. May be, there was something more to what he was seeing. But, did he want to get involved? Well, he could not just leave the girl here like this in such status. It is why she was in the infirmary. She looked very weak. It was like like her foot was already inside the grave. All that remains is for her other foot to fall. Even then, she could still walk with her current condition. She was far enough from the main building and was barely about to reach the area where the two bridges of the Sun and Moon dormitory connect.

His silence was disturbed when she thanked him about being carried into the infirmary. Thinking about it, he was not certain if what he did was even considered kindness. It was like he was carrying an attache case with distaste due to the distance from his body. Well, it was better to be careful than to be sorry as some people would say. But, she then had another frown on her face as her sentence trailed into a thought that probably caused sadness to her. What would have happened if she was left alone there? He does not know but she seemed to. "You would have been fine" Aeron stated without a hint of hesitation. There was no way a girl like her that can deliver a punch would just lay there one the ground for a long time.

Then, panicked footsteps echoed not so far from their location. Actually, he had heard it for quite sometime and chose not to alert the female prefect. He had guessed it was for the girl before him. It is a fact that she was out with any medical clearance. He could tell this as much and judging by her expression it was the truth. But before Aeron could tell her to go with the medical staff, she pulled him to a corner where they could hide. He was alarmed by her suddenly reaching for him. By instinct, he was about to move away, "Don't touch me!" He stated in alarm but it fell on deaf ears and she managed to grab hold of his sleeve. Thankfully, it was just the sleeve. She appeared to be in a greater panic than the ones searching for her and him.

She tugged at his sleeve once more as the people looking for her comes closer. Those eyes were desperate as they looked at him. If it was in the past, he would have ignore her or even push her way. But, this was not the past anymore. Something clicked inside of him. He pulled away his sleeve from her grasp and then turned his back from her. At first, it would have been interpreted as him abandoning her. Giving her the cold shoulder, but he spoke. "As you wish." He then walked away and met the group of doctors coming towards their way. "Hello there! Running around so late?" The doctors were surprised at his appearance as some of the nurses blushed on sight. Well, he was still a pure-blood and his beauty was beyond that as well.

Effectively, he was able to divert the medical staff away from the area and even waved at them enthusiastically. They separated on good terms. Well, he even had to sweet talk some of the nurses which came easy for him. In all of the years he had lived, he had experienced almost everything personally. When that was done, he returned to where the female prefect was. "Ito-san, there's nothing to be afraid anymore." Aeron stated as he looked at her with those blue and gold eyes filled with gentleness and a small smile decorating his lips. He wanted to take away that fear from her eyes. Just this once, it was not something he needed to do. He just wanted to.

"When your body has became your worst enemy, there is nothing you can do to protect yourself or others from it. Do you understand?"





Panic rose in her chest when he pulled his sleeve out of her hand and turned his back on her. For a moment she wasn't sure how to feel, he was just going to walk away? It was something she had expected Eonis to do, but not Aeron. Her eyes widened but before she could freak out completely, he spoke. "As you wish." He said, his voice instantly calming her down before he walked out towards the doctors and nurses that were heading towards them. Sakura stepped back further in the corner so she was hidden by the shadows. "Hello there! Running around so late?" The doctors and Nurses had stopped short, most of them staring in awe, of course it made sense, the boy that stood before them was stunning, after all Sakura had considered him an Angel at one point earlier today,it made sense how effectively he was able to lead them all away from where she was hiding.

Soon enough through, all of the doctors and the blushing nurses departed, most likely to check the other side of the school for her, and Aeron returned to her hiding place. "Ito-san, there's nothing to be afraid anymore." Her train of thought broke as Aeron's voice filled the air around her. She looked up and met his eyes once again, one gold one blue, but there was something she couldn't quite place in those strange yet enchanting eyes. What was that gentleness in his eyes? It was something new and rare for Kura, she had only ever seen it in Kiyo's eyes, but that was the only person, Kuro was never gentle with her, instead he always pushed her to her limits and kept her away from harms. It was nice to see it from someone else. It was oddly soothing.

Slowly Sakura's heart slowed down and she was able to relax. "Thank you Aeron-san, they would have made me stay in the infirmary longer...the last time I ran away they freaked out" She smiled slightly at the meory before her smile turned bitter. "Kuro lectured me for the next week about how the illness would have stronger effects if I wasn't properly treated but..." Her voice grew smaller and smaller before she stopped talking completely. She stood there for a moment of silence before finishing her sentence quietly. "It doesn't matter what I do,it will be the same end result." She didn't honestly care about he medicine or the treatments, no matter what the doctors said she would still end up dead, even if they could find something to prolong her life by a few days, those days would be spent in a hospital bed. She actually wasn't planning to return to the infirmary any time soon. In fact she wasn't even going to go back to her dorm, because they would be checking there by the end of the night. She knew a empty un-used dorm that she would be able to hide in until she was healed, or until she had to get a refill of her medicine.

Speaking of medicine...her would titled ever so slightly and she blindly reached out to hold onto the wall for a moment as all color drained from her face. Deep breaths, close your eyes, calm down. When was the last time you took your medicine? A small voice in the back of her mind instructed her calmly, and she followed each order with persuasion. This had happened before, when she was younger she had forgot to take her medicine. Nothing horrible would happen right away, but if she didn't take the little blue pill in the next twenty-four hours she would go into a coma. Ah the joys of being a short ill person. Sakura leaned into the wall and closed her eyes as she took small breaths.

Her heart thudded painfully against her rib cage, momentarily knocking the air from her lungs and making her nails dig into the brick wall beside her. Four more minuets and it would be gone, the pain, the short breath, she just couldn't panic, or things would get worst. "I'm s-sorry...Aeron-san..." She croaked out between small breaths. She wanted to tell him to ignore her, to maybe just walk away, but the words wouldn't form. At the same time through, it was comforting having him so close to her, when this had happened with Kuro he had pretty much shoved the pills down her throat and beat the air back into her lungs so harshly he had left bruises. Yes, this was much better.

”It is really odd when the one who always takes life will be the one to make sure that death will never come.”




Ito thanked him for hiding her from the medical staff. Actually, Aeron was still a bit iffy with that. It was probably because of how she appears at the moment. She looked so sickly and pale. It was like she would keel over any minute soon. Did he just do the right thing? He would never be sure for what is done is done. At the very least, she seemed happy about it and the desperation that flashed in her eyes was no longer there. So technically, it was a good thing. He just wanted to get rid the anxiety she was feeling. There was no way he could have ignored with the current him now. "You're welcome." He answered and looked around. It would be better for her to have some rest.

Before he could suggest that, she spoke about something about being ill. This would be the first time he had heard about it. Well, all Aeron knew about Ito were as the other prefect and the small student. Other than that, he did not put much effort of knowing. He was not her main concern. Anyway, it now makes sense why the doctors and nurses were frantic looking for her. Or the fact, she has this sense of apprehension when going back to the infirmary. Her current appearance finally coincide with her current condition. She was sick although, he had no idea how fatal it was. If she was sick, she should have not pushed herself too much. Taking a rest once in a while helps to soothe the frazzle nerves.

But, Aeron did notice the feeling of hopelessness emitting from her. What did she meant by having the same result? He could not understand it. Nothing was ever the same when certain actions are done. Plans do not always come to fruition in every step. Sometimes, there are mishaps. Well, he stopped those kind of thoughts for now as he was getting further from the topic at hand. Was her sickness so serious unlike what he had deduced earlier. If it was, she should mind her healthy more. She must take some medicine and rest. "Ito-san, you should return to your dorm. Rest usually makes everything better."


Somehow, it was impossible for the female prefect to do just that. She began to lean on the nearby wall. To him, it was clear that her body was not reacting as she wanted anymore. It was giving away from the stress she had placed it in. She must be terribly sick than he had guessed. Earlier, he had just thought of over-fatigue, fever, or a simple cold. But, it was none of the above. This girl should receive medical assistance. She apologized to him. He slowly stepped back and was about to call for the medical staff. But then again, he recalled the fear in those eyes. He was not sure what caused such horror being seen by a doctor.

In any case, he did not want to see her like that. The other thing he could do is to bring her to her room and have her take some medicine. It would probably right for him to assume that Ito has prescribed medicine or such. The problem with that. He cannot risk holding her. If she had a fragile constitution from the get-go. It would be a great problem if their skins make contact. She will die instantly. Looking at her, there was no way she could walk or pretty much move from her current position. He could ask Eon to help but then again, he had no idea where the male prefect is.

"Do you have a medicine to take?" Aeron asked her with those eyes of gold and blue flashing concern. If she was carrying it with her, it would be great. He would have her take it. But in the event, she does not. There was not much of a choice. He would have to retrieve it but seeing her current condition, he could not just leave her here alone. Carrying her was not an option. So, there was only one thing left to do. "You have to take your medicine and get some rest" After stating that, he removed the glove on his left hand. Then, he placed his index finer to his lips and bit into it. Soon, blood formed from the broken skin. Seeing that, he allowed the blood to fall on the ground where an archaic symbol formed.

After a while, the symbol was replaced with a small odd looking creature. It had two tails, odd black markings with a diamond on its forehead, red eyes with black slit irises, and made a mewing sound. So, it was a cat as it swayed its tails in an amiable manner. Actually, this was Aeron's familiar. It is not often that he summons his familiar. Actually, this would the first time anyone saw the feline creature. Even Eon had yet to meet this creature. He wore his glove once more before addressing Ito. "Ito-san, this is Riri. She'll carry and take you to where you want to go."

Riri mewed once more with a smile. Somehow, it was hard to believe that such a small thing could carry her. There was no way she could ride on something so small. It was not possible. But, Riri was after all a familiar of a pure-blood. "Riri, go on." He told his familiar. Hearing her master's approval, Riri was engulfed in flames for a brief moment before revealing its new form. The small kitten became a large cat that was even bigger than that of a stallion. In this state, Riri could carry anyone. Ito was not going to be much of a trouble anymore. Aeron then looked at Ito once more. "Come." He motioned for her to approach Riri who walked towards Ito and sniffed her so gently. After doing so, she purred indicating she liked Ito.

“Life will follow the path it started upon, and will neither reverse nor check its course; it will make no noise, it will not remind you of its swiftness





She couldn't breath, but it was getting better, it always got better, however it was taking longer, not that it should surprise her, with her limited time it made sense that all of the effects of her illness would be increased, she was just lucky she wasn't coughing up blood yet. Aeron was saying something to her about medicine and rest, he was asking her if she was okay and if she had the medicine on her, which she didn't, it wasn't smart to carry the medicine, but at the same time it was. Sakura tried to wave him off and tell him she would be fine, but she couldn't form the words. After a few more seconds of gasping for breath, she manged to get a bit more control on herself, and she was able to open her eyes just in time to see Aeron pull his glove from his hand and bite into his thumb until he drew blood. Panic and confusion flashed across her face as she waved a hand at him, trying to get him to stop hurting himself, because she didn't understand why he would make himself bleed in such a way for no reason, it made her actually very worried to see Aeron bleed in such a way, she wanted him to stop because she didn't like to see him in pain, even if he didn't show it.

After a short silence, the strange symbol that had formed out of Aeron's blood was replaced with a small creature that Sakura had never seen before. Through it was odd with it's two tails, strange marking's and the little diamond, the creature was actually quite beautiful in a strange way, Kura wasn't even bothered by it's red eyes with the thin black slit irises, she actually through it was perfectly adorable. "Ito-san, this is Riri. She'll carry and take you to where you want to go." Sakura directed her eyes back towards Aeron as he spoke, and a strange look crossed her face before she manged to get two words out. "That's new." She stated in a slightly astonished and confused tone that would have made Kiyo laugh at her.

Riri, as Aeron had called her, mewed once again with a smile that made Sakura want to pet the small creature. Slowly, Sakura thought over Aeron's words as her face screwed up in confusion. Did he just say this tiny cat was going to carry her? "Riri, go on." Aeron spoke, cutting Sakura's confusion short as the small animal spontaneously contused in flames for brief moment before the flames vanished and instead of the small kitten, there was now a much larger cat in it's place. Sakura blinked once again, her eyes winding and her mouth falling open to form a small O before she spoke once more, forcing the words out. "That's new." She stuttered in dumbfound tone that was more directed to herself than to Aeron of the cat. It was clear now that Riri would have little trouble carrying Sakura, in fact it looked like the cat could carry both Aeron and Sakura, and then even more people. For some strange reason through, the cat, Riri, was beautiful to Sakura, she had always liked cats, but even through the animal was strange, she was still oddly pretty, normally she would have been freaked out by a animal suddenly growing in flames, but no panic was felt.

"Come." Aeron spoke, once again breaking her train of thought and making her look at him in confusion. Sakura suddenly felt like she was in a strange daze, he looked oddly beautiful too...Wait...what? She mentally shook her head and tried to approach Riri on wobbly legs. Riri met her half way, and leaned in ever so slightly to sniff Sakura, before she purred happily. Sakura looked back at Aeron for a moment, confusion clear in her face, before she turned back to Riri and tried desperately to jump up onto the cats back, however is was like a small child trying to touch the gas peddle in a car with their foot, it was hopeless. She raised both her arms for a moment and wiggled her fingers as if she could suddenly fly up and land on the cat, but this also proved to be hope less, so she dropped her arms in defeat and leaned face first into the side of Riri. "No short jokes." She mumbled sadly, her voice muffled by the cats fur. Sakura didn't want to hurt Riri by using her fur to climb up onto her back, that would just be cruel in her eyes.

"I love this, it's so much fun, but even then, all good things come to an end."




She could feel him walking along rough patches of the pathway and could feel a bit of pain in her abdomen, however; she did say it would be worth it just to irritate the prefect. As much, she only hummed to herself as she kept her eyes closed, ignoring the words that came out of the prefects mouth. She could hear the tone of his voice shifting as she inwardly laughed at her accomplishment. She wouldn't bother the prefect any further...at least for tonight. She was having too much fun irritating him. She must have a death wish or something for such things. Regardless, she left it as it was until he spoke a certain sentence. She scoffed at the words he had chosen to speak. Did he realize what he had just said?

"Does that mean you'll still try then?" she asked with a hint of amusement. He said he wouldn't be able to save her all the time. That alone could be interpreted as many things, but for Kiyoko, it was a source of amusement. He must not have heard as they remained silent until they reached the dormitories. If he would have asked, she would have told him where her room was, or even more so that she could have made it back on her own. But since he did not, and he didn't bother setting her down, she shrugged her shoulders and allowed him to carry her onwards. Once they reached her room, he opened the door without much care and ushered himself in. It was a good thing she didn't have a roommate. It was one of the disappointments of being who she was that she wasn't allowed to have anyone else share a room with her. Certain people did not wish to taint her with such things. She sighed before a yelp escaped her lips at being tossed carelessly on her bed. Well, it was a good thing it was soft.

"Jerk," she muttered as she made herself comfortable on her bed. She ran her fingers along her stomach to make sure nothing had been damaged and sighed contently to herself. He spoke something about her not causing him any more problems. A smirk tugged at her lips as she turned to face the prefect as he left. "I can't promise you that!" she shouted out after him. She laughed to herself as she curled up in her covers, reveling in the warmth they provided. She wouldn't cause him any more problems so long as Sakura wouldn't cause her any more unnecessary worry. Speaking of which, was she back yet? She sighed into her pillow as she closed her eyes. Sakura was going to be the death of her one day.




Kiyoko couldn't sleep that night. She kept tossing in her bed as a cold sweat covered her form. She was having a nightmare and it had frightened her a great deal. She sat up in her bed as she took in ragged breaths. There was blood everywhere in her dream. It coated everything and the bodies that littered the ground had frightened her so. She had seen Sakura laying in a pool of her own blood along with Eonis and Aeron and all the other students. A laughter had pierced her senses as she had stared in horror. She didn't like this dream at all. It felt so real that she had cried during her sleep. With a sigh, she rolled out of her bed and slowly walked towards her own bathroom. She readied herself for the day, however; she still had a few hours left before the day was to actually begin. Well, she did say she was going to make something for the two that helped Sakura and herself that night. She made her way to the kitchen area and tapped her chin in a thoughtful manner.

"Hm...what should I make them?" she muttered to herself as she glanced at the ingredients available to her. Well, she could make that for them. It was a simple dish and she could always add something to it. She was still debating whether or not she should make something for the prefect though. He was a pain in the ass, but she still owed him. And she didn't like to be in anyone's debt, even if he was just doing his job. "Omurice it is then!" she stated happily as she began a slow work pace. The pain wasn't so great as it was yesterday, so she could move around a little faster. A night's rest was all she really needed, despite how deep the wound was. The kitchen was soon filled with an aroma that made Kiyoko happy as she finished the last touches to the omurice. It hadn't taken her very long to make them and she placed them gently in a box big enough to fit the omurice. She paused and smiled as she grabbed something and wrote on one of the omurice's that belonged to the Shiraga prefect. A cheshire cat grin appeared on her face as she wrote a word on it.

"Take that you jerk!" she stated to herself as she finished up the word. She continued to allow the grin to linger on her face before she sighed. "It wouldn't be fair to just write on one," she chuckled to herself as she wrote the same word on the other omurice. With a smile on her face, she wrapped the boxes up and took one down the hall. She could give Eonis his first since he was in the same Dormitory as she was, although on the other side. She'll just leave it by his door so she doesn't have to interact with him. Before she had left, she wrote a single thank you on a card and had tied it to the box. Once she found his room, she laid the box down. Whether he would see it or not, she didn't care. She didn't care either if he ate it or not, it was just something she wanted to do. With that done, she made her way out of the dormitory and made her way towards the Moon Dorms. She had been there plenty of times before and it wasn't like she wasn't un-welcomed. She knew more of the Night Class students than the Day Class which wasn't that odd really. At least not to her.

"Hm, now what was his name again?" she stated as she tapped her chin in a thoughtful expression. She knew his last name, but his first name always eluded her for some odd reason. She shrugged her shoulders as she made her way into the dorm. She spotted a few of the Night Class students lingering about in the entrance. Some of them ignored her while others seemed to show a sign of recognition. She could hear her name being called out in greeting as she returned the gesture. They let her be as she made her way through but stopped mid-way. She spotted a particular vampire and waved for him to come over to her. He smiled as he approached her. "Ephraim! Can you do me a favor!?" she asked the white-haired vampire.

"Oh? And what would that be?" he asked in an amused tone. She pouted her lips at the male as he chuckled. "Of course Yoko-chan, anything for you," he stated as he took her free hand and brushed his lips against her knuckles. She pouted again as she released her hand from his grasp. She hated when he did that, it always brought up unnecessary questions. Mainly about the relationship the two shared. It wasn't much of anything. She had viewed him as her friend, like an older brother almost, while he seemed to always take it a little too personal. Shaking her head, she laughed as she cleared her throat.

"Can you give this to the Melanthe pure-blood? I can't recall his first name and I don't know where he is," she stated as she handed the box over to the noble vampire. "And don't you dare eat it or else! Thanks E-chan!" she stated and waved good-bye to the vampire who merely chuckled as he peered at the box. It had a little thank you note on it which caused him to tilt his head in confusion. Why was she thanking the pure-blood? Did something happen between the two? He shook his head as he left to find the pure-blood and deliver the box as promised. Kiyoko, however, made her way back to the Sun Dorms at a slower pace. She was still tired from last night and it didn't help that she hadn't received much sleep that night. She sighed in frustration as she rubbed her stomach. It still sort of hurt and she needed to change the bandage anyways. A voice, however; stopped her in her tracks as she turned towards the source.

"Good morning, Kuran-sama."

”This is considered normal to be fascinated by another, right?”




It was rather amusing to watch the human girl try to climb on top of Riri without clinging to the feline's fur. She must have taken a liking to his familiar even if it would not hurt it at all. At the moment, her attempts were comparable to an infant taking its first step. The word that should be probably used to describe this situation is adorable. If he was not mistaken. Although, he did not know the trouble which originated from her height until she pointed it so by telling him not to make jokes about it. Honestly, he had related it to her current physical condition. Now that she had mentioned it, he finally noticed it. There was clearly a size disadvantage here in which he tried to stifle his laughter.

Riri turned its head curiously at her master. It was not new to her to see the pure-blood being jovial. Instead, she was knew to being in the presence of Ito as she then looked at Ito once more. She was not certain what kind of relationship her master had with this human. In truth, this would be the first time she had shown herself to someone who is not a vampire. Her master has great self-control in terms of his powers and abilities which also extends to his usage of her. So, it was a feat to have her appear here unless for an important reason. That is why, she is very curious.

Regaining his composure, Aeron coughed a bit and looked at Ito apologetically. "I'm sorry about that." He started as he approached Riri who turned its head to him. "I didn't laugh because of your height." There was no lie in that as he gently patted his familiar's head whom purred so affectionately. He looked at Riri with warmth. It had indeed been a long time since he had a chance to interact with the feline creature. "Riri, if you would please." Understanding what he desired, Riri complied by lowering herself to the ground in which Ito would not have any more trouble to sit on his familiar's back. "I found you quite adorable. So, I can't help it."


There was not event a hint of embarrassment or shyness as he spoke such words. Aeron delivered it like informing her of the weather today. His eyes with two-toned color gazed at her gently while a small smile decorated his mouth. "Ito-san, you should get on and just tell Riri where to go. She will take you there."
He noted and when the female prefect was secured on top of his familiar. Riri gently stood up and then gestured for Ito to grab to its fur. "Hold to Riri's fur, so you won't fall easily." He reiterated to the female prefect before he stepped away. There was no need for him to accompany the girl. Riri would take care of her for him. "Take your medicine. Riri would make sure of it." He noted and then nodded towards Riri. "Ito-san, take care of yourself more."

Once he was done speaking, Riri with Ito on her back began to walk away from him in which Aeron waved goodbye. When they were out of his sight, he looked at a certain direction with narrowed eyes. He had intended to accompany Ito earlier but there was something wrong. There was sense of foreboding in the air. He had to check it out for now. In which, he did so even knowing that he was lurking around far from the stated curfew hours. Oh, he would have another meeting with a certain prefect which he was looking forward to. After all, the pure-blood will always have time for the male prefect.



The next day, Aeron could feel that his body was still aching from Eon's violent tendencies. Granted, he is a pure-blood. What was wrong with him hugging the younger male due to his overflowing affection? He will never understand why it irritates the male prefect. Speaking of which, he had yet to find out the reason of that troubling aura that lingered last night. Usually, he would not have minded it. However, it was inside the school where Eon is. He did not want harm to befall on the male even if it was Eon's job to be in harm's way all the time.

Disrupting his thoughts, a knock was heard on his door. He was currently looking at the chess pieces strategically placed across the board. It reflected certain decisions he had made throughout his stay here in this academy. Looking at the door, he approached and opened it. "Oh Ephraim!" Aeron noted with pleasant surprise. The vampire smiled and offered a respectful bow before showing him a box. "Huh?" The pure-blood looked at the package oddly in which was explained to him as a gift from Kiyoko. If he remembered, she is the girl with red-hair.

"Oh, thank you, Ephraim." Taking it, the vampire left the pure-blood on his own once more. Aeron was still at odds why did he receive anything from that girl. He does not remember doing anything for her. If it pertains to what happened last night, he was not even considering to save her for Eon took the initiative all together. The gossips were true. She was indeed a nice girl. He opened the gift and found a serving of omurice with the word design. Afterwards, he then read the thank you note. It made him smile. Unfortunately, he does not eat omurice. Placing down the meal on the nearby table, he wondered how Ito is. Riri has yet to inform him of anything. But everything should be fine. After all, his familiar would have told him otherwise.

"Even though I try to avoid trouble, it always seems to find me. Is it because of this blood that courses through my veins? If so, take it all away. I don't want it."




Kiyoko stayed in her spot, staring at the one who addressed her by that name. Her once smiling face was now twisted into one of confusion and a frown. The man before her, something seemed odd about him. It wasn't until his eyes flashed a crimson color that she knew why. He was a vampire, and judging by the way he was standing out in the sunlight, a pure-blood vampire. A smile adorned his lips as Kiyoko remained standing in her spot. She would not falter under this vampires gaze, however; his tone had addressed her not with a malicious intent, but a friendly greeting. As such, it was only polite to return the gesture.

"Good morning, I am afraid I've never met you before so I cannot address you by name," she replied, earning a light chuckle from the ashen gray-haired male. This only caused Kiyoko to frown as she watched the male take a closer step towards her. She subconsciously took one step back. "If you'll excuse me I must return to my dorm and ready myself for the classes. If you are part of the Night Class, I suggest you return to the Dorm less you face the consequences of breaking curfew," she stated as she turned to leave, however; she found herself unable to. She glanced around as she tried to move. She couldn't move, why couldn't she move? The laughter of the new-comer had her gaze on him once more.

"Sorry about that princess, but I can't let you go now," he stated as he circled around her like a vulture circling it's prey. For once, a surge of panic spread through Kiyoko's being as she struggled to move. Then, she spotted it, a shadow connecting to hers. He was manipulating the shadows? Great. She turned to glare at the male as he was now standing so close to her. His hand grabbed her face and tilted her chin up. His face leaned in ever so close to hers, their lips just a hair-breadth away from each other. "Now, is that anyway to treat a friend? This may hurt at first, but I think you'll enjoy it" he stated, a sardonic smile twisted upon his lips. He lowered his head to the crook of her neck as Kiyoko's eyes widened. He was going to bite her. He was going to make her a vampire. Before anything could happen, the male screamed out in pain as he released Kiyoko. He had been ripped away from her by the shoulder, and the blood that had sputtered from the wound landed on Kiyoko's face.

"I told you to back off, Atlas," Shiranui snarled from the flesh hanging from his teeth. The vampire known as Atlas glared at the large wolf as he clutched his shoulder. His eyes flashed a dangerous crimson before they turned to stare at Kiyoko who couldn't move much still. Her wound had re-opened due to the sudden force of which Atlas was ripped from her and the sudden movement had caused her to tear the scabs that had been forming. She winced as she grabbed at her stomach and applied the necessary pressure, however; she kept her eyes glued to the white wolf she knew as Shiranui. He had talked. He had spoken to the vampire. That meant, he was someone's familiar. But who's? "You forced my hand in this. You know the agenda, you know the rules," Shiranui continued to speak, his fur standing on edge as he bared his fangs at the pure-blood.

"You will be punished severly for this, Shiranui. I will make sure of it personally. You get to keep your human side for now Kuran-hime," the vampire spoke before disappearing into the shadows he once manipulated. Kiyoko felt herself being released as she crumbled to her knee's. Shiranui stared at her, his eyes softening as Kiyoko reached out to him. He nudged her hand as she smiled, the blood still pouring from the wound and causing her vision to fade in and out. She was going to pass out again, but not because of the blood loss, but because of the events that had just unfolded. This vampire had threatened to turn her into a vampire, something she feared more so than losing Sakura to the illness. She didn't want to become one even though originally she had been born as one. The life she had known was that of a human's life. Not a vampires'.

"Thank you Nui. Be...be a good boy and take me...back," she stated as she fell forward. Shiranui caught her on his back and shifted so that he was now carrying her. He glanced at the red-haired Kuran heir as her blood caked his fur lightly. He could see that she was unconscious and sighed. "Idiot," Shiranui muttered as he began walking towards her dorm. It had been her idea that no one see him, but he couldn't just leave her out in the open. If Atlas came back, and he wasn't around, there would be no doubt in Shiranui's mind that Atlas would succeed in returning the Kuran princess back to her original heritage. Even though it was required of her to do so when the time came to wake the other one, Shiranui had made a promise. And it wasn't to him. It was to Her.


Shiranui, promise me that you will protect my pure-child. Do not let her return to the darkness. Keep her in the light. Will you promise me?

I promise


He sighed as he recalled the words. Yes, it was a promise he had made to her. As much as he would like to see his master again, he couldn't refuse the pure-blood princess when she had asked him...pleaded to him with such eyes. With a sigh, he trudged along. Before long, he had walked a good distance and spotted a peculiar sight. It was the Ito prefect, or roughly Kiyoko's friend. Should he leave her in the small girl's care? He shook his head. What choice did he have? He made his presence known to the girl by gently nudging her elbow with his large snout and glancing to the Kuran heir on his back.

"She needs your help."
