Description

Image




Image

”Don't fight the fears you have. Embrace them.”



Nickname: N/A

Age: 17

Sex: Male

Race: Human

Role: Guardian




Image

”Let's just all turn to dust. It's part of our fate anyway.”




Hair Color: Naturally a lighter brown, but is bleached blonde.

Eye Color: Blue-Hazel

Skin Tone: Almost death white, with pink undertones.

Height: 6' 5"

Weight: 158 lbs/72 kg

Physical Description: Ren is a very "odd" individual in the Day Class. He's very slim, taller than most, and extremely light skinned compared to his peers. He also prefers his hair blonde, which is also uncommon (for his class, anyway). His eyes are also blue, revealing him to be at least somewhat of a "foreigner". His face is slightly angular around the jaw, in par with his thin bones. His posture is almost constantly slouched as the building isn't built for people his size. He has one tattoo on the back of his shoulder that looks like a traditional Chinese dragon. He has quite a few scars from childhood.

He also smells like a mixture of smoke, leather, and old books.




Image

”True happiness...what I would give to make that a reality.”




Potential Interest: Ren is too busy ruining his health and running after fan-crazed girls to care about anyone in that way, really. He's also unsure of his sexuality, and hasn't really explored anything yet.

Skills and Abilities: Ren is a master at managing sleep, running, and faking feelings. He's not really involved in any clubs, simply preferring to use his free time to think about things. Surprisingly, he can teach himself a lot of things. One of the things he actually knows how to do is handle himself in a fight, using a mixture of a bunch of styles from fighting games and his time in "hell". He has a high pain tolerance.




Image

”Everyone dies at some point. What matters if it's now, later, by your own hand, or naturally?”




Other: Ren suffers from depression and tries to hide it by putting on a "cool, mature, badass" front. That's why his normal attire consists of leather jackets with tees underneath, dark jeans, and a pair of dark Toms. He also has a pair of pretty cool sunglasses (pictured). He loves video games and English literature. It's rumored that he is actually bilingual in Japanese and English, since others suspect his heritage is not fully Japanese. He wears brown contacts to cover his eyes up. He has a bad habit of mildly swearing sometimes.




Image

”To be or not to be, that is the question my friend.”





Personality: As stated, Ren likes to pass of as "mature". Since his depression causes him to be emotional (an in his mind "unmanly"), he tries to cover it up by being mean and cold. He sometimes comes off as a snob or a little bratty. His carefree attitude gets him in trouble with adults a lot, but he's not hot headed. He's very calm on the outside. He rarely talks to anyone unless he's forced to. If he is talking, he tries to keep it short, since his mind is always trying to keep up the act. He doesn't truly know who he his, which scares him. He's normally holed up in his room reading Shakespeare or something of the like.


History: Ren is an orphan. When he was a child, the place the government placed him was hell to him. The adults didn't care, and the other children were horrific. Since he was "different", and the youngest at the time, they placed him in dark rooms for hours at a time, beat him with anything they could find, and mentally tortured him. Once he was fed up with it, he started to fight back. Even though it barely helped with the treatment he received, Ren felt a little better about it.

One night, the head of the orphanage was caught abusing one of the older girls by his wife. Ren was young, so he didn't understand at the moment. The wife had been drinking for years, and when she found out, she bludgeoned the "Master" and the girl to death, and proceeded to burn the building down. All of the children were asleep, including Ren. But for some reason, Ren had woken up outside the burning building. He assumes he's the only one alive. After what they've done to him, Ren honestly doesn't care if they're alive or not.

After hitch hiking and walking to the nearest city, Ren was around the ripe old age of nine. He had spent six years in the orphanage, and didn't know anything about the world outside of it. He was forced to live out on the streets. Not a single person gave him the time of day...except for someone Ren calls "Mr. Red". This man was also different somehow, and always stopped every day to give Ren food and some company. It was nice, to have someone to talk to him like a human being instead of some animal. But it only lasted around a year.

It was winter. Ren had slept in a bit in his usual spot, and Mr. Red had come at his usual time. When Ren awoke, Mr. Red was staring. Before the poor boy could say anything, Mr. Red had dragged him into a dark alley way and attacked him just like any Mad Vampire would do. If the Headmaster hadn't shown up when he did, Ren would be dead....

He's been living at the Cross Academy ever since, trying to come to terms about his parents origins , the experience at the orphanage, and Mr. Red.

”When you've walked the path I have, you wouldn't be so trusting either.”

"It is my job to protect those who cannot do it themselves. I am the protector, all will fear me in due time."




Beads of blood formed across Shizuka's bottom lip as her face remained glued to the one in front of her. She wiped at her lip as she glanced between the person who caused such the liquid to appear and then towards the frightened boy hovering behind her. It was her duty as prefect to protect the students of Cross Academy from every thing and anything that threatened the peace. And that included humans as well. This much larger boy hovered in front of her, a smirk pulling at his lips as she kept her burgundy gaze on his form. It was time for the switching of the Day Class and the Night Class, however; she had caught this male trying to take the smaller boy's money. It was a classic 'give-me-your-lunch-money' scenario and Shizuka wasn't going to allow something so menial upon her school. So, here she was with a busted lip that would heal within an hours time as if it never existed.

"I will tell you this once, I do not like repeating myself so I advise you to listen. Go to your dorm, leave this twerp alone, and you won't be hurt," she stated in a tone that could be compared as light and friendly, however; her eyes were showcasing an entirely different emotion. Anger. She had other things to attend to and she wanted to get this over and done with. A laugh pierced her ears like a sharp whistle as she sighed. She peered over her shoulder towards the smaller boy. "You are witness here that I gave them the chance to leave. I always love it when they choose the harder way though," she stated through a malicious grin, causing the small boy to cower back in fear.

Needless to say, Shizuka walked with her head high and a bright smile on her face as she made her way towards the gates that provided the only separation to the Day and Night Class. A large crowd had already formed, screaming and giggling like mad men and women. It hurt Shizuka's ears at the loud squeals and calls for affection, even though the Night Class had yet to appear. She couldn't fathom a reason why these humans were attracted to such forbidden fruit. Sure, they had an ethereal beauty to them, but if that was the only reason, then perhaps the human race should be wiped out. She shook her head from the thought as she sighed deeply. Now she was thinking like a vampire, and she wasn't one. Oh no, you see, Shizuka isn't quite human, nor is she quite vampire. She has her own little secret that she hides from the world.

Playing with one of the rhombus earrings, she leaned against one of the poles and watched with amused eyes as the gates to the Moon dormitory opened. Immediately, the shrieks escalated into full screams as the girls and boys of the Day Class clamored around the Night Class students. Shizuka watched on in amusement, however; it was short lived when one of the Day Class students tried to jump over the barricades and rush towards the group of vampires that had walked so eloquently from their dorms. She had to resist rolling her eyes at the way they presented themselves, but she only sighed as she pushed herself away from the pole. She muttered underneath her breath as she quickly made her way towards the front of the crowd. The by-standers who spotted her immediately parted for the flame-haired prefect who wore an un-amused expression. She was hoping that today would not have any problems but it seemed fate was against her. Reaching out, she grabbed the student from the collar of her shirt and pulled the girl back.

"And where do you think you are going?" she stated as the girl turned to face Shizuka. She could see the fear growing inside the crystalline orbs of the girl as a smirk appeared on Shizuka's face. "Be a good girl and get back to your dorm. That goes for ALL of you," she stated in a thundered tone. Immediately, a majority of the students dispersed, some running while others walked away briskly, including the girl that had moments ago been in Shizuka's hands. With a satisfied nod, she directed her attention back towards the Night Class students. She would wait for the Night Class to enter the academy before continuing with her rounds. She often liked to patrol on her own. It gave her the freedom to relinquish the animal instincts that were housed in her body from time to time. Even though she had a partner, it was something she preferred. Being alone often helped clear her mind and she could focus more on other things.

It didn't help that tonight was a full-moon either, although, she didn't have anything to worry about as long as she kept the earrings on. If even one were to be removed, everything she had tried to hide would be all in vain. She couldn't risk that, especially since she knew that if she were to lose control around a student, or worse a vampire, nothing would be the same and Cross Academy might have one less student on it's roster. With a heavy sigh, she pushed those thoughts out of her mind where they belonged. This night couldn't be any different than the rest, could it?

If she only knew.

Another day, another sleepless night.

Ren quietly shuffled among the retreating students. It seems Shizuka had already scared them off. He approached the red-headed girl and apologized for being slightly late. He side stepped a bit and lit up a cigarette. A bad habit for sure, but it kept him calm around the Night Class. He didn't fully trust a single one of them, but it was his duty to the Headmaster to make sure they got to class safely and without incident. He started skimming the only copy of "A Midnight's Summer Dream" he could find as he waited for the vampires. Today had been rough on him, but at least he lived through it for the most part. It hadn't been the worse wave, and he could still focus on his job tonight. Carefully rubbing his eye, he continued to read, trying to bury himself in the story.

The vampires had come into proximity before he could, however. Closing the book silently, he slipped it into his back pocket and studied the main three vampires on campus. Rien, the oldest. He seemed to be a vampire with experience and only spoke to those he felt were "worthy" enough to speak to. Ren didn't really have a problem with this, as well, he didn't really like vampires. The next one that caught his eye was Kura Akisawa. The light haired girl was unique in her own ways, including the way she presented herself to humans. Lastly, he took notice of Katsuro Nori, a noble. It seemed that he holds himself a little too high on the ladder of vampire status, but who was he to judge?

Ren stood motionless, waiting for the night to begin.

"Every human and vampire - all of them are ignorant, that's part of being alive after all. It's a trivial matter. So what's the problem for me doing exactly the same thing?"



Ah, another annoying day.

With that thought, Kura woke up silently without being woken up by anything, just like that, glancing out of the window. It was her habit, always looking out the window although she knew that she wouldn't see what she'd hope. She abruptly turned her head to the opposit direction and decided to get ready for school. However, something heavy didn't let her to do exactly that. It was the small red bundle right in front of her, sleeping so peaceful that it got her annoyed. With a far from gentle poke, she tried waking up her cat look- like familiar. "Neko... wake up this instant," It was a very threatening order what made her familiar still not moving an inch though. If Nekoyama started to sleep, it could last for even a whole day if he was not being woken up by someone. However, Kura was trying to do exactly that and tried yelling - but she knew, the only thing what made this lazy red cat wake up is the ultimate weapon: Cat food.

Reaching to the can of cat food not far from Kura's bed, she purposely opened it loudly. However, in the end it was the smell which made the red cat opened his eyes quickly and jumped in the direction of the smelled food. "Food!," It screamed with exciting big eyes and grabbed for it - but Kura didn't let him get it so easily. With one faint, she let her own familiar missing the cane and dropped himself to the ground. However, it didn't last long until the next jump. And finally after awhile, the red energy bundle had succeeded and ate happily there in the corner, where Kura throwed the cat food to. She hated such a bother, but Nekoyama was just too heavy, even though he was so small. "You eat too much, Neko," He exclaimed while sighing and started to change her clothes.

The one being talked to just could sound a statisfied curr and move it's tail widely to every direction. Obviously, he was happy getting his favourite food every time in the morning so he would never forget to sleep above Kura everytime. It was a rare matter, where Kura lost by it's stubborness. Something that rarely happened. She sighed. She was too soft with him, what happened to her attitude? Breathing in and out, she grabbed the necklace which she never forgot to carry, put it inside her purse and went ahead opening the door. "I am leaving you, greedy cat- pig,"

Kura was about to close the door, as the small red familiar escaped the room in the last second with his 'mouth' still covered with food and with a wide jump from the desk nearby landed on Kura's shoulder. However, she coldly let him slide to the ground again. "Don't dirty my clothes," She didn't said 'Neko' nor 'greedy cat- pig' what means she was not joking around with that - Neko understood. "Right away!," He disappeared into the restroom and Kura continued to walk towards the still closed Moon Academy Gates.

She didn't spot Rien. Not like he was looking for him though - she detested him, acted like all mighty, as if he was above everyone else. However, it couldn't made her care at all - it was obvious that many vampires preferred her over him, because she is seemingly nice and kind and all. Hah, how foolish. Kura enjoyed to act like that not only because of her personal amusement. Still, those prefects were not as easy as those now smiling vampires to fool. They didn't really trusted her much, that was obvious. Well, Kura didn't want to be trusted from the start. Bothering about such cockroaches just wasted time after all.

Kura enjoyed the attention they gave her, those vampires even called her "Akisawa- sama" although she had told them not to. "Good morning to you too. How beautiful you all are today again, my Ladies," She said with a - fake - smile. However, they were already gone by her smile - how easy. "Where is Rien- sama?," She asked, as she - seemingly - didn't want to be the one leading the night class students into the academy. Those vampires just answered with a too long answer - an answer, that Kura disliked to hear. She wanted quick and straight to the point answers. However, she had to endure. "I hope he will come soon... you think we should go ahead? I don't want to burden the prefects even more...," She muttered showing her worried while gazing to the gates, already spotting the two prefects.

Trapped.

As Kura wanted, she suggested to just go ahead. It was important for them to suggest that, not her. It'll only damage her image. "Well then, let's go. Are you coming too, Nori- san?," She asked the noble vampire as she started to walk to the gates. Many vampires however stayed and waited for their 'King'. It was undeniable that Rien had a very strong influence on the other vampires. Inside, she was quite irritated. But outside, she showed herself as a gentleman as she walked inside the academy. The moon dormitory gates were opening, and the humans were already shouting from afar. She loved that melody, to be honest. As she was smiling very statisfied inside, she had the same charming smile on her lips as she greeted everyone, included both of the prefects.

"Good morning, Morioka- san, Leoght- san," Suddenly, her shoulder felt heavy - it was Nekoyama, the red cat familiar who managed to climb up to her shoulders and now raising his paws. "Mornin' boooth of you, miauo," He said, obviously enjoying saying 'miauo' in the end though Kura disliked it. Still, it was a cover up, so Kura couldn't help but bearing with it. "I just love your hair colour, Shizuka! And Ren, stooop with smoking! This is school!," Well, it was obvious that the familiar liked her hair colour - it was the same colour as his whole small body after all. Still, his straight forwardness annoyed Kura like always. Which is why she was bearing not to roll her eyes. "A- ah.. sorry for my straight forward familiar... but he is right, you're as beautiful as always, Leoght- san. And Morioka- san, I think, smoking is very bad for your bod-," But before she could end her sentences, her red familiar already took the cigarette and throwed it away. Oh well. Not like Kura disliked her familiars doing.

“I have not a desire but a need for solitude.”





Silence.

It was perfect silence, it was calm and peaceful, Asami could have stayed in the woods all day and basked in that silence, she could have slept out here and allowed herself to relax, she could have just let herself go, but things never go the way she wants them, she has enough proof to show that. A loud, girly scream of complete and utter glee cut through the air, making her flinch and nearly fall over before turning her head in the direction it had came from. I guess the Night Class are out and about... She sighed loudly before slowly making her way towards the loud and annoying sounds, she honestly didn't know why all of those girls-and even some guys-acted like crazy people around the Night Class, did none of them pick up on the weird vibe all of those people set off? Carefully Asa stepped out of the treeline and made straight towards the red head that was yelling at the students. A gasp was heard from beside Asami, making her flinch and mentally prepare herself.

"Senkou-chan!!

"Oh!! Asami-san!! Will you sign my bag?!!"

"Look! It's The Flash!!

Suddenly, Asami found herself in the center of a crowd, surrounded by boys and girls who were tugging on her Kendo uniform and even on her hair. She made a strange noise like a dying animal before practically jumping over the crowd and landing on Shizu's back. "Save me!" She hissed, making the girl turn towards the crowd so she was hidden from their sights. She clung to the other girls back and glared over her shoulder at the Day Class students who pouted. Asami hadn't noticed the other people around her for a moment, and only when she was sure that safe did she turn her head towards the other Prefect and the Night Class student. "Hello..." She said feebly, still not releasing the red heads back, if anything she crawled further up it and leaned over her shoulder until she could reach out and touch the strange cat sitting on Kura's shoulder.

A fascinated look crossed her face as she gently brushed her fingers behind the cats ears and a small smile spread on her lips, she loved little animals, they were so cute, but this one looked different. "Your uhm...cat, is very pretty." She smiled at the girl, a rare smile, before tugging a piece of Shizuka's long hair and held it up to the cats fur, a small grin taking over her face before she turned to her friend. "You never told me you have hair the color of cat fur." She covered her mouth to hide the smile and giggles that tried to escape while leaning to the side a bit, if someone had asked what she was doing, she would answer honestly and tell them she was trying to get the girl to lose her balance,she always wanted to see Shizu lose her cool for a split second, it was a hobby of hers, it was something a little sister would do to her older sister. It was kind of just fun.

”Life is simple. Wine, Smoke, and Flowers, there is nothing else that I need but, I am not simple which makes life complicated.”




Beady pink eyes with ark maroon irises gazed at the rather bloody yet oddly enticing scene stretched before its owner. A beautiful woman with hair of pale lavender and mocha complexion had an expression of divine pleasure. The source was the vision of perfection, a man who was being pinned down on an elegant sofa bed. It was quite the position as the female was on top and her face buried at the well-exposed neck of the male who seemed to be in the middle of being undressed. His shirt was opened and falling off from his shoulders. If anyone would chance upon them, they would consider this as a very sexual and intimate act. But with scent alone, this was far from the truth. A sanguine act always committed without the knowledge of anyone else but them.

"Satisfied?" Such a smooth tone likened to velvet edged with the coldness of ice echoed through the hallowed room. Closed eyes fluttered open as they glowed red and soon transcend to indigo-blue hue. She slowly pulled away from his neck and looked at him with such ecstasy. Blood trickled down from the corner of her lips which was the same to the neck she was feasting herself upon. A putrid scent filled the room but, it was not enough to deny her the taste of his exquisite blood. "Never for eternity." This made him smile with such amusement as he raised his body from the sofa and licked the blood at the corner of her mouth which made her gasped and blushed. "Too bad, that's it for your dinner Cassandra."

These words were spoken as he whispered it so seductively to her ear. Cassandra closed her eyes in understanding and disappointment. "Yes, Rien-sama, my Supremo." With one fluid movement, Rien stood and wiped the trickles of blood from the bite mark which was now nonexistent on his skin with a finger. He then proceeded to lick it off with a playful manner. "Master, it is time for classes." It was the voice of his familiar who watched everything with those beady eyes of his. The pure-blood as he had been deemed went towards the direction of his window and looked out. Ah yes, he was a student and he has to attend school activities to keep up with his new pastime. He could see that the others had already went ahead with the so-called Noble King and the Akisawa pure-blood.

Cassandra fixed herself and was already donning the white ensemble which was the uniform of the Night Class. It contrasted with her skin but gave her a wonderful exotic appearance. It was very alluring. "Supremo, shall we go?" Rien looked at her silhouette from the corner of his carmine red eyes. He then raised his arm and stretched it side-wards. She already knew what that gesture of his meant and smiled gently. Taking hold of his jacket and vest which hanged at his closet, she then brought it to him. It was time for him to prepare. After all, he really did not mind making people wait on him. Not at all.

Once the preparations were done, Rien exited from his chambers with Cassandra and his familiar in tow. His steps were sleek and elegant. There was nothing rough or fragile in his stride. There was authority and strength in his gait. He exudes the presence of unattainable superiority. This is the main reason many looks up to him in revere and fear. But at the same time, it also causes problems with those who dislikes his arrogance which he finds entertaining. Before they turn around the corner where the grand staircase awaits. He looked at his familiar who understood without any more words.

No one had ever seen his familiar true form except for him and Cassandra. To others, his familiar had always taken a more humanoid appearance in a guise of another. Rien continued his walk and revealed himself to some of the night class still waiting for him. They immediately gave bow of respect as he descended which was followed by Cassandra and now the human form of his familiar. His familiar now wore the skin of someone long ago precious to the pure-blood. Skin of porcelain white, eyes of purple, hair of black, and a face so handsome, this was the visage of his brother of a very distant time. But of course, this is unknown to many but him, Cassandra, and his familiar. They greeted them with respect, admiration, and fear. They were the trio who held great influence within the Night Class and even more so, to the entirety of Cross Academy. Even with the Akisawa and the Nori present, they still held more wariness and terror towards these three individuals.

"Good morning, Supremo-sama."

"A pleasant day, Milady."

"I hope you slept well, Pelus-san."


It was always like that. This was the every day routine from the moment that Rien enrolled himself to this academe. The pure-blood simply let those trivial greetings passed by like a breeze as he never even made any effort to recognize them. However, it was a bit different for Cassandra who greeted back with a smile and as for Pelus, his familiar, he simply gave a curt nod. Just like that, he lead the group out of the dormitory into the opened gates. The rest of the class which went ahead seemed to have been obstructed by a few things. He could already see the presence of the two prefects and a bit of the Day class who upon seeing him screamed with such enthusiasm.

"Supremo-sama! Supremo-sama!"

The familiar choir of shrieks and shouts filled with blind adoration for him. Well, he was indeed very popular but he all ignored it as usual. There could also be some shouts for his entourage. It was to be expected. They were a bit more complying to their admirers than him. Anyway, he soon reached the group who had been informed of his presence by those shouting girls. "If you all have nothing better to do. Stop blocking the way and..."
In the pause he did, a wind passed by them as the cherry blossoms around them which was ordered to be planted by the pure-blood let their petals scatter by the wind falling all around them. Of course, he also ended his statement with a sardonic tone and neutral expression, so vague to tell. While those carmine red eyes, lingered on each of them to emphasize to whom he was addressing his words. "Scatter."

"Not all things in life are horrible. It just depends on how we take things and react accordingly.""




Shizuka's unwavering gaze never left the vampires that were marching to their classes. Some Day Class students still managed to linger about, even after she had dismissed a majroity of them, and squealed in delight. It was then she felt something and turned to meet the crystalline eyes of the one known as Kura Akisawa, one of the pure-bloods attending the school. Her face remained blank as she stared at the girl before Kura's familiar spoke. She blinked at the red fur ball and had to resist from snarling at it. She didn't like that cat, that much was obvious, but she had a charade to keep up. So, she smiled softly instead. Apparently the cat likes her hair since the color was the same as it's fur. She shrugged and glanced back at Kura, furrowing her brows in the process.

"Flattery will get you no where Akisawa-san, but thank you. Now get to class," she stated in a deadpan tone. She didn't like interacting with the vampires much, and she didn't like being around them for too long.It was often brought into question as to why she accepted the position as prefect to begin with if she didn't like the vampires, however; she never gave a stout reply to that question. She had her own reasons and they were reasons that didn't need explaining. Shizuka glanced at her partner and noticed the cigarette in his mouth. She frowned, not because he was smoking, but because of the smoke itself. It bothered her senses and she hated it. It didn't help that her sense of smell was heightened to a degree that anything that was unpleasant was heightened ten-fold. She sighed, grateful for Kura's familiar swiping the cigarette from the boy and putting it out. "If you want to start your rounds, I'll follow up after this," she stated towards the other prefect present. With a curt nod, she made to move towards the crowd, however; something latching onto her back caused her to stop. She knew who it was and she smiled brightly.

"I never thought that my hair color was rare," she retorted to Asami's question. She could feel Asami leaning towards the side, trying to knock Shizuka off balance. This only caused Shizuka to smirk. It was useless to try and get her to lose her balance. Her balance was top notch, not because of her heritage, but because of the routines and excersises she had put herself through, especially for her kendo club. If she couldn't keep balance, it would be easy for anyone to knock her off her feet. "You should be getting back to your dorm Heki. Curfew is almost in affect and I can't protect you from that," she stated, removing the girl from her back and placing her to the side. Before she could say anything further, more shrieks and calls for affection pierced the air, causing Shizuka to wince a bit at the sudden loud noise. She rubbed her ears slightly, trying to get the ringing noise out of her head. She turned, and immediately all the hairs along the back of her neck stood up. There, stood the infamous pure-blood she despised: Rien.

Shizuka furrowed her brows. She didn't hate the pure-blood. Hate was too strong of a word. She merely despised him greatly. And it was a funny thing, she didn't personally know the vampire. All she knew was that from the moment she set her eyes on him, there was this overwhelming dislike for the pure-blood. Then she found out why. It was the aura he radiated. It was one of someone who commanded a great deal of respect and awe from the vampire community, and it didn't help that they all called him Supremo. She could feel her eyebrow twitching as the Day Class students continued their shrill calls of affection for the one responsible for her current irritation. Then, the pure-blood spoke for the group to scatter. This only served to fuel the flame for Shizuka as she stepped towards the blonde pure-blood.

"As a prefect, I have every right to be here. You can go around, there is plenty of room," she retorted. Her eyes were set on the blonde pure-blood as she said those words. She would never address him by his name for she believed he didn't deserve it. She'd call him Plaga, or pest, whichever she was in the mood for saying, but at the moment, he was just an annoyance to her eyes, a parasite. Most of the vampires were such to her, all except for them. She folded her arms against her chest, waiting for the vampires to continue their way towards the Academy. "So you do not have a right to order me around," she continued, crossing her arms against her chest. She hadn't spared a glance to his entourage, the two vampires following so close behind him. The female, she didn't know very well, but the girl never gave Shizuka a reason to dislike h, nor like her to begin with. She stood much where Kura stands, someone who is in between. Plus, the girl had pretty hair, although Shizuka would never mention that out loud to anyone. Then, there was the purple-eyed vampire who radiated such a peculiar scent. She couldn't tell for sure what it meant, but he too was in the same position as the blue haired pure-blood.

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”





"It's time to awaken, my Lord."

Katsuro groaned as the drapes that blocked out the sunlight were tugged open, allowing the light to spread over the room and nearly blind the boy. Even if the sun was setting, they shouldn't have to leave until it was down completely. The older man, who was already dress in his usual clothing, pulled the still half asleep boy up, out of his bed, and began to dress him in the school uniform. If it wasn't for Arashi, Katsuro would never make it to classes on time, in fact if it wasn't for the older man, the boy would sleep the whole night through and not be bothered by it in the slightest.

Once the young king was dressed and more awake, they descended down the stairs and joined the rest of the Night Class, all of which were in their while uniform, except one. "Do you never wear your uniform, Leiko?" The dark haired boy turned towards the white haired boy, a bored look set on his face while Arashi frowned, wondering if he was going to have to start dressing the other boy as well. "No, it feels...scratchy..." Leiko wrinkled his nose in distaste while a few of the vampires around them chuckled. "You would be wise to stay away from the Prefects, while your dressed like that." The older man fake smiled, through he was grimacing on the inside at the white jeans and black and white shirt Leiko wore, that was not something a Pure-Blood should be wearing.

Suddenly girly screams filled the air as a bell sounded somewhere near by. The dorm doors flew open, and the Night Class walked out as one, the Pure-Bloods taking the lead, and Katsuro leading the Nobles. The gates slide open, allowing them to pass. Most of the Night Class was visibly pleased to see that most of those bothersome humans were gone, however Leiko was frowning in annoyance. "Those Prefect's didn't leave me anyone to play with." He turned his head to the side slightly, to glare at the two red heads, but his eyes visibly brightened at the sight of the Asami. "That's not a good idea..." The Noble warned, through slight amusement shined through his eyes as well. The white haired boy ignored the warning, and took off towards the Prefects and the human, a grin set on his face as he came up behind the pouting girl as she was set aside by the Prefect.

"I know Shizu, but then again I never really followed the curfew..." The light haired girl shrugged lightly before smiling ever so slightly, but it was gone as soon as Rien spoke to the Day Class. Asami stepped closer to Shizuka before a scowl marred her features. "Who the hell does he think he is to tell us to scatter." She seethed, but it was cut short when arms warped around her shoulders and pulled her into a cold chest. "You shouldn't speak to him like that..." Warm breath ghosted over her neck, before something smooth and wet rubbed on her check, making her eye twitch.

Did he just lick my face...?

A noise that was oddly similar to a hissing cat and a battle cry escaped the girls throat as she broke free from Leiko's grasped, spun around, and punched him right in the face. "Pervert!!" She yelped, before jumping back onto Shizuka's back and hiding in the girl's hair. Leiko sat on the ground, holding his nose with one hand while the other held onto his stomach, he was laughing so hard he thought he was going to puke. "Leave it up to Leiko to harass young woman." He sighed from behind Rien while Katsu rolled his eyes. "He's a moron." He glanced at the Pure-Blood once more, before turning towards Arashi.

"Deal with him later." The older man smirked before bowing ever so slightly. "Very good, my Lord."

Ren sighed as his cigarette disappeared. It didn't matter to him, really: it was a habit. The blonde silently eyed everyone carefully as Asami jumped onto Shizuka's back. Various things were said and done. Honestly, all he wanted to do was patrol around the school. All of these vampires made him slightly nervous. It would be nice to have some alone time. It was always and awkward socialization for Ren, personally, but it WAS a job that needed to be done. None of this inner thought train showed on the boy's face. What did show was slight boredom at standing around here.

Glancing at Shizuka, Ren spoke for the first time in about a month. "If you don't mind, I'd like to get a move on, please..."

"Sick how they can be so full of themselves."



She was used to it, back home. She was a female after all who will inherit her family. It was just too obvious that they descriminate her because of her gender. However - she was used to be look up to in the academy by the day class students and even some many of the night class. The prefects were indeed different than the day class and the night class. She felt a rather unpleasant feeling as the red haired girl spoke to her with such an unconcerned manner - it was obvious that she disliked her. Seeing the prefect everyday, she knew though that her dislike - or even hatred - was in general towards all night class students in the academy. That was enough to make Kura not hate her - in fact, she kind of saw it like a game. It was always amusing to have resistance - she seeked the fun in it. That's why her thoughts stayed neutral and the smile didn't change, although there was some protest from the girls there in the crowd and the girls right beside her.

"Don't be so mean to Akisawa- san!"

"Apologize!"

"Who do you think you are?!"


"Now, don't blame Leoght- san. She is just doing her duty," It was one of her many statements which were the complete contradictory with her actual mind, however, lying and acting was always one of her talents. And all of her little "sheeps" were buying it anyway. What is now in her interest is the other prefect. She always wondered how - and why - this one was a prefect from the start. He is smoking; bad example. He looks like a slacker in everyway and seeing him made her want to knock him down telling him to do his duties -- if she were his boss. She despised people who doesn't gave their best; they were just an eyesore. Her familiar probably felt the annoyence of his master and did the thing she carved for. That's why she was simply not surprised as he threw the cigarette elsewhere. And indeed, it didn't only made her statisfied and feeling way better before -- it was for the good for everyone. However, she was not someone who'll think of others before herself.

Then there she came, the "Flash", one famous member of the Kendo Club. Her relationship with the red haired prefect was so good that Kura felt like she wants to destroy it so much - something annoying that they had to get over with. It was all probably because jealousy -- but even if it's right. She would never say it out loud, even in her mind. It was a feeling that she rejected. "You both are in harmony like always." Indeed, weird way to express herself, but she didn't care. Her mind was already somewhere else.

Judging from the noise ... finally the "King" arrived and spread out his "humble" presence. Pfft. Kura had to laugh in her mind as she thought that. "Humble" was definitely the last word she could describe the light haired pure- blood who had always that blanc expression she despised. It was definite that his family status is higher than everyone else include her however, she never saw him above her. She never so anyone above her. But something like that is always meant to be. If there are fans, admires, there will be also enemies and despiser. And Kura could bet that she was not the only one who despised him.

However, her dislike was not meant to be only for the "humble King", also for his both "Servants" who never seem to leave his side. Like she was smiling and his familiar briefly nodding to the crowd - it annoyed her. Probably he saw herself as the Day Class, back to the time where she was calling out for someone. A past mistake that she'd never do again. Still the most annoying one is the "King" himself who didn't even response to the greetings and even told them to "Scatter". Her muscles began to tense up, making the familiar of hers slightly a bit worried. "Don't let anger overcome you, Kura- kun!", he whispered into her ears. Whenever she saw him, he would always do the same. She had enough with his egoistic play, not really considering herself as egoistic as he is. Why did he annoyed her so much?

It lasted only for a seconds, barely unnoticable, as Kura relaxed herself and smiled. "Good Morning, Milady, Supremo- san, Pelus- san," Already by the words she greeted him and like she ignored his threatment was obvious that she didn't want to treat him better than everyone, even challenging him somehow, by not calling him adding "sama". Maybe it is a small difference however, big enough to make Kura willing to say it. However, she couldn't help but being polite - her family status is on the line. She couldn't disappoint them -- yet. Nekoyama's fur tensed a bit everytime he saw the presence of the pure- blood vampire "King". He felt the danger which brought the threatening and fearsome voice and the frightening aura which surrounded him. He was scared of Kura's safety because of her stubborn nature, she'll not back down although the power of the enemy was immense. "Enemy"... yes. Both of them saw him as an "enemy". Who isn't friendly to them is directly an enemy, obviously. "I have to apologize deeply. It seems that I brought trouble for the prefects again." It was not really clear who she apologized to however, she already made the path open for the three personages with a (fake and professional) gentle smile. "Not before you," She said showing a manner for them to go ahead first. Gentleman like. The reason is simple: It was polite and she didn't look like someone beneath him too much. And that's exactly what Kura wanted.

Nekoyama already noticed something else. His ears was sharper than anyone -- he was indeed somekind of a cat. Which is why he heard what the other pure- blood, who walks around with his Butler, said to him. It was the distruction he needed, so that he would not crumble around the "King" presence. And indeed a material that he could report to Kura -- something that will probably spice up her mood.

”No one is equal in this world. Even the Gods have to look up.”




How utterly boring and predictable. Everyone was like that in his eyes. No one is an exemption. Nothing was unique anymore. No body was considered interesting to him. Why is that so? He had seen them all. It is true that time only does repeat. Change is just a momentary lapse and then again, it would happen after hundreds or thousands of years. This could also apply to the people surrounding him as of now. The screaming and blissfully ignorant humans, the self-serving vampires, and the renegade and brooding prefects, they were very easy to unravel. It is why he could get under their skins so easily with just a few words.

The little boy who believes himself as a king, he displayed his dependent character with the wave of his so-called butler. Now, how can that be a King? A person who had been given everything is someone who will easily crumble with the slightest touch of the wind. Oh, he had seen many of him in various eras. The amusement he received from those people was nothing more but an empty haze. Then, there was the so-called misdirected pure-blood that the boy likes to instruct. In Rien's point of view, he does not care at all. If the white-haired boy wanted to go naked, then he would not interfere. Unless, he offended him personally which never happens.

Then, there was this human girl clinging to the female prefect. Rien heard her words clearly stating what right does he have to say such things. Everyone has a right to say what they want. The question should be why can they not do the same? How trivial of a matter which appears so complicated to them. Human minds are really small in comprehension despite how big it tends to appear. It was a pitiful thing really. But then again, he would admit one thing. They do have a very large spectrum of emotions. It is what makes and breaks them by the end of the day.

Anyway, Rien decided to address a specific statement towards him. It seemed that this female prefect was not bound by the routine tendency of hidden words. But then again, she was indeed a secret. He could tell that this person was not something of any known race. Why so? He does have Cassandra, does he not? Furthermore, he is who he is even if he had been now but a subject of legends and history books. For that, the woman with red-hair was not on the borderline of boring. However, it was not the same with his servant. Not at all. Deep within, Milady was not pleased with how the Leoght prefect spoke towards her Master. Prefect or not, her Master is a person to be respected. She was about to speak about the rudeness when Pelas placed a hand on her shoulder. Wondering the reason for that, she then heard her Master spoke.

"On the contrary, you are at our mercy. Your position will be useless." His eyes of blood-red seemed to pierce into her very core as if he already knows everything about her. As if, the very layers she tries to cover herself proved to be useless with those scouring eyes of his. "But, it is fun watching you squirm." His voice was now filled with underlying dark playfulness. It was then his attention was slightly divided by the blue-haired pure-blood. Ah, the two-faced girl, he remembers. He did not return the greeting or did he even bothered looking at her. In truth, he simply listened to the words. Pelus gave a small nod to acknowledge this while Milady smiled kindly. "Good morning as well, Akisawa-san." After doing so, Rien heard another statement. This time, it came from the negligible male prefect. Did the human boy really even matter?

Hearing this, Milady looked at the male prefect politely and looked at the direction of his Master who was still looking at the female prefect. It was slowly becoming a source of her envy at the moment. So, she interrupted. "Supremo, we should go." Pelus simply glanced at the male prefect and then to Cassandra. He knew that the mocha-colored female was starting to feel slightly uneasy with the attention their Master was giving to the female prefect. Why not? The girl was an odd creature. Rien heard his servant and continued his way. Even with the path that the blue-haired female provided, he did no take it. Instead, he went through the female prefect by literally plowing his way. Knocking the female away from his path, he did not even apologized for it at all. Why would he? Did he not tell her to scatter earlier? She should have listened but it was more fun this way. Pelus did not do anything at all and simply trailed behind his Master.

As for Cassandra, she stopped before the female prefect. "I hope you're not hurt." Her voice flowed like gentle lullaby as she spoke. She could feel that her Master was not waiting for her so, she would not make this long. "Please be more patient with him." With that said, she bowed politely and followed after her Master in which she caught up with soon enough. The other members of the night class followed suit as the Vice-Leader was definitely someone who should not be trifled with. He was not even fazed by the Leoght Prefect. The blonde-haired pure-blood was truly something else entirely. Not only that no one knew who he really is. He easily gained the status of being among the vampires with ease. This is also another secret yet to be determined.

In any case, Rien has now reached the doors of the main building. The classes were pretty much a perfect time for him to relax and sleep. There was no need for him to listen to the lecture. They were the same things he had experienced firsthand. No one can teach him anything anymore. Glancing at Pelus, the familiar already knew what his Master wanted. "Master, the wine is prepared." This made him nod in approval and entered the building without fail while Milady was waited by Pelus before following inside. That emotionless expression looked at her while she moved to pat his head. "Thank you for waiting." And so, Milady entered in which Pelus followed shortly after. The Night Class was now in session.

"Do not think for a moment I will submit to you or anyone else. You cannot rule me unless I allow it.""




Shizuka glared intensely at the blonde pure-blood. Everything about his presence caused the hairs along the back of her neck, and even along her arms, to stand on edge. It was as if they had a life all of their own and wanted nothing more than to rip something off from the pure-blood. The hostility radiated from her very being. And then he spoke. Mercy? She scoffed at the word. She was not at anyone's mercy, if anything they were at her mercy. She could rip anything apart should she desire to, and at the moment, she wanted to rip the head off of that pure-blood. She wanted to bathe in his blood as his body shattered into pieces and dissolved into nothingness. Oh yes, she wanted this pure-blood dead. Her burgundy gaze never faltered under his own crimson one, and if one looked closer, they could almost see the sparks of anger flowing from her eyes.

"And what makes you think I would be at your mercy?" she retorted. She paid no mind to Asami as the human girl clung to her back, hiding in her red hair. If this had been another day, Shizuka would have laughed at the girl's attempt to hide from the vampire whom she declared licked her face. Speaking of which, her eyes drifted over towards the boy as she sent him a heated glare as well. She returned her attention back to Rien and held his gaze. "If there were no witnesses about, I would have personally dealt with you," she nearly hissed out. Everything about this vampire angered her down to the very bone. It stayed silent between the two, almost as if their staring contest were a battle all in itself. But like all things, the silence was shattered when one of the vampire's spoke, the one they called Milady, otherwise known as Cassandra.

"You should listen to her," she stated through gritted teeth. The words went unhindered as the pure-blood walked ahead, however; his direction was not the way Kura had made for him. He was heading straight for her direction. Shizuka stood her ground as he grew closer, and for a moment, everything seemed to be at a standstill. Her eyes were still glued to the pure-blood, and then, he shoved passed her. She was forced a step back, however; it wasn't enough to cause her to fall. If she could have, she would have released the feral snarl she was holding back, but instead, she kept it to herself. She would have been childish and thrown a stone at his head, however; before she could react, the Milady spoke. "I am going to tear his head off," she snarled at the woman as she disappeared. How dare she tell her to be patient with the vampire. She didn't have to do anything, not when it concerned the pure-blood.

Now her anger was getting the best of her. She felt a sharp pain in her shoulder, but she ignored it. Pain was irrelevant in her mind, and it did not matter. The only thing that mattered at the moment was the pure-blood and his words. She wanted to tear his tongue out, watch as he slowly gagged on his own blood. She wanted to rip out his intestines and strangle him with it, however; she pushed those thoughts to the back of her mind. She'll find a way to dispose of him, one way or another. Instead, she put her focus on the other prefect and then to Asami. The vampires had already made their way to class, and she had no further use in being around them. She should have never accepted the position as a prefect. She knew that she would only be annoyed by the fact that she'd have to watch over the Night Class and protect the Day Class, however; the only reason why she took the position was to protect her friends, or what few they were.

"Asami," Shizuka stated, her tone monotonous and serious. She hardly addressed Asami by her first name, and the few times she did were when she was in no mood to be friendly. "Return to your dorm or go to the music room. I am in no mood to hear any retort. Ren, go scout the west side of the Academy. I'll take the East," she stated as she removed Asami from her back once more. She glanced at the two humans before taking off in the opposite direction. She needed to calm herself down and it wouldn't do any good to take her anger out on the ones that didn't need to be a source of her outlet. She walked through the Academy grounds, watching as the moon brightened the dark corners of the school. It was strangely beautiful, the way the light illuminated the flowers, particularly the cherry blossoms that continued to fall.

It brought a strange case of serenity to Shizuka as she allowed the breeze to comb through her hair. She closed her eyes, feeling the cool breath of the wind against her heated skin. The pain in her shoulder seemed to escalate as she rotated it. She brought her other hand around and massaged the muscle, trying to keep the pain from becoming irritating. She sighed, and continued her way, however; a peculiar scent littered the area. Her eyes darted back and forth, trying to zone in on the one responsible, but she saw nothing. She pursed her lips together as she turned around, only to meet the discolored eyes of crimson and amber, and an amused smile playing on the man's lips.

"It's a pleasure to finally meet you, Shizuka Leoght."

“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.”





"Asami," Said girl broke from her train of thought and blinked in confusion, turning her head towards Shizuka a little, Asa knew that tone, and she knew what would come with it. "Return to your dorm or go to the music room. I am in no mood to hear any retort. Ren, go scout the west side of the Academy. I'll take the East," She flinched at the girls tone before quickly getting off of the red heads back. She tried to hide the flicker of hurt that crossed her face but it was hard, Shizu was the only person she had ever opened up to, and she understood that the girl wasn't prefect and that she had a temper, but she was the closest thing she had to a sister, she wouldn't know what to do without her.

She frowned slightly before walking away without a word towards the other Prefect or the white haired male that jumped up and followed the rest of the Night Class, instead she hurried to her dorm. By the time she reached it, the moon was already rising into the sky and the sun was slowly leaving sight. She changed in the dark into a pair of jeans and a light blue sweater that hung off of her shoulders. it was her favorite sweater, the only down side was the fact that part of the jagged scars that ran up and down her back were visible. She only wore this when she was going to be along, she never allowed anyone to see her scars, not even Shizu, they were all that she had left of that night.

After slipping on a pair of sneakers, she left her dorm and headed towards the main building where all classes were held. She avoided the Night Class most of them time by using the music room on the West side of the Academy, where Shizu normal patrolled, but because the patrol was flipped today, she would have to practice closer the the Night Class in order to avoid the other Prefect. The boy could do little to her even if he caught her in one of the music rooms, because she had permission from not only Shizu but the headmaster. Carefully she crept past the Night Class and went to the music room, two doors down. I hate being so close to them... She sighed while quietly shutting the door and heading over to the grand piano.

Her fingers itched to play it right away and she gave into her desires quickly. Asa sat down on the bench, lifting up the case to reveal the ivory and ebony keys as a gentle sigh escaped her mouth and a small smile graced her lips. Before she placed her hands over the right keys that would play the melody of the song, she closed her eyes for a moment and allowed herself to block out everything around her. When she played, she allowed her self defense to lower, she became less aware of her surroundings and focused on the music alone. In less than a second, she was playing the song she had played so many times before. The music filled the room around her and escaped through the closed door and the open window, it was a heart wrenching melody she had learnt upon the death of her parents, but she had played it so many times it had became a part of her, it was the only way she allowed her grief to pool out of her very being, it was her escape from the pain.

As her thin fingers made connect with the spotless keys, she felt it again, and connection with the music, the feeling of her life line tying together with the song as it expanded and grew with each thump of her beating heart, powering the music further and further until it became apart of her. As she played she become more lost in the music, letting in flow through her body and into her fingers to play the notes. Katsu sat with the rest of the Night Class, most of them relishing in the beautiful music as it filled their room as much as he was. He had to admit the human had talent, but it wasn't anything he hadn't seen before, she had talent but no ambition to chase after that talent and grasp it fully. "What a waste." He sighed to himself, leaning back in his seat and shutting his eye.

A floor above Asami and the Night Class, leaning out the open window, was the Headmaster himself. Usually he had to travel across the school grounds to be able to listen in on her piano session, but today he could stay put and truly enjoy the song, Asami often played different melody's in one night, sometimes she would stay until the sun rose and just play, but it was not very often she played this song. It was filled with raw emotion that made the mans heart weep for the girl. Behind him, stood a man clad in black, the only color he produced were his vibrant blue eyes. He was silent as he listened to the song come to a close, and the silence stretched on a for a few minuets before he spoke.

"Has she shown any signs of remembering?" The blue eyed man wasn't looking towards the Headmaster, but instead up at the dark sky. "No..." The man chuckled at the pause before taking a step forward. "It will do her no good for you to lie, I need the truth." The glowing blue eyes narrowed as silence filled the room once more, before the Headmaster slumped his shoulders in defeat. "She has been showing signs of remembering certain details..." The unnamed man nodded once before turning and heading towards the door. "It's time I visited her once more, we cannot allow those memories to resurface, I will take care of it soon." The Headmaster spun around, his face set. "Does our arrangement still stand?" Ah yes, the arrangement te headmaster thought could protect the human girl. "That depends, the deal was you were to inform me as soon as her memories started to resurface, and in return I would not harm her, you neglected to inform me right away, so perhaps I shall neglect a part of the deal as well." A smirk spread across the mans lips, as the headmaster deflated, there was nothing he could do to protect her now. It was already too late.

As the Night Class moved on to their respected classrooms, Ren let out the breath he was holding in. As he straightened out the collar of his uniform, he heard Shizuka tell her friend to return to her dorm or the music room, and for him to take the West side of the school. The boy nodded. He made a note about the switched patrol route, and the other girl's expression as she walked away. Quickly turning away, he started on his patrol. The sun was almost gone, making the sky a dark orange color. Time was only slipping by slowly. Tonight would be long, just as he anticipated.

Soon enough, the moon was peaking it's way through the sky. It was slightly chilled outside, as normal. Ren still was not used to the west side of the school at night. It seemed a little more dark than the usual display....but his ears picked up the sound of the Academy's piano. It must have been Shizuka's friend. What was her name...? "Asami, that's what."

He quietly entered the building and opened the door without the girl noticing. He listened for the song to end and said, "That's quite a beautiful piece. I had no idea you played an instrument." Ren had tried before to play the piano, but never had the talent to do so. Just as soon as he appeared, he left to continue his patrol without waiting for a response.

"If it comes to a pinch -- I am gradually innocent."


He is flipping her off. If someone would be able to see her emotion that currently is raging inside her -- he would more or less be attacked by the flames of unpatient and unhold anger. She barely couldn't hold down her temper as her familiar whispered something pleasant in her ear which made her anger slowly to go back to it's normal state. However, it was a small amusement which would never last long, that's for sure. That boy with his butler couldn't go against those three personnage -- it was something that Kura believed in. Whatever the eyes of the young pure-blood vampire is which he covered, what is probably somekind of a weapon, a secret, or only a mere ugly scar. She was just thinking too much.

The scene, as the red haired prefect was hurted by Rien was actually quite entertaining. She disliked the girl and even though it was the all- down- hate Rien who hurt her; it statisfied her quite a bit. It was not only her who suffered by his presence -- even more, also other than the two prefects and the noble vampire. However, before she could ask about the red- hared girls condition, she changed her mind seeing her burst with anger and went to do her duties. It was then also when the little group started to clear up -- all because the "King" went away.

Her little sheeps were quite terrified by the scene -- yeah, still, but gasped and offered to finally go to the classes. Kura just gently nodded. "Don't mind. Rien- sama has probably just over looked Leought- san." They went to the classes after Kura had heared a bunch of praises adresses to herself, which gradually cured her little dispute in her mind.

Suddenly, a small girl tugged on her clothes. Again -- it was this girl again. The ugly glasses girl with no presence. However, she seems to seek her side. That's being said, it was not something that Kura was proud of. A plain, back haired glasses girl beside her -- it just doesn't fit her image. However, she couldn't reject her either -- rather, she was responsible not to reject her, even to protect her. She was obviously weak and Kura believed she was stronger. It was a well known policy of her family... the weak should be protected by the strong. For Kura, it was a pathetic rule. It was probably made by her late grandfather, a man who lived too long and finally is killed by vampires hunters. Not a pleasant story to tell, because it needs much power to kill a pure- blood however, he was just too weak, her grandfather. Suit him well.

With a gentle smile, Kura carresses the girls head. "Good morning, Estasa. How pleasant to see you today, The girl just nodded strongly, with her head bright red. What an easy girl to read through. Inside, Kura was just disgusted with her attitude, with her acts. It was annoying. Really annoying. She should just get lost. However, Estasa was a stubborn girl -- wherever Kura went, she'll go along. And Kura couldn't reject her for that. "Estaaa...," Her familiar miaowed as the red bundle jumped off Kura's shoulder to Estasa's head. The girl squeaked while fidgeting, giving out happy sounds as she finally catched the cat with a winning smile and placed him on her shoulders, while then gently touching again Kura's hand with her small little fingers and smiled all over her face.

" Happiness "

Somehow, this girl, trying to piss her off even more. In the second she thought that, the girl tugged on Kura's shirt and offered the cat which was now sitting on her two hand palms, showing such an expression as if she was trying to persuade Kura to forgive her. What a weird girl -- Kura always thought that. Kura coughed slightly, wanting to cover her unease and wonder as she again smiled. "Excuse me. And thank you. However, Neko seems to like being with you." However, she suddenly forcefully closed her eyes, her eyes trembled and remained in the same position. As Nekoyama made the situation loose as he jumped off her palms to Kura's shoulders. Kura only could be clueless about her. But the girl in question just sighed in relieve and tugged back on Kura with a smile.

Estasa is quite the mysterious girl. She was indeed in the Night Class, however, she didn't had the charm for that nor the strength. In Kura's eyes she was a good for nothing -- seeing also her ability of to be unable to speak. Even though, many teachers respected her with a blurry reason that Kura didn't know. "She is very attached to you, Akisawa- sama. I hope you take good care of her, but that's natural for you, is it?" If he just knew, that teacher. Unfortunate for him, no one will tell him before it's too late.

That Kura actually didn't care about anyone in this surfficial school. Suddenly, she felt a little shiver -- it was Estasa who was shivering, looking down to the ground while still holding on Kura's clothes tightly. As if she is feeling something terrifying. What a bother. Unmatched with her words, she patted her head and tried to comfort her, but her shocked expression, mixed with terror remained on her face.

Forgive me. Forgive me.

The girl used telepathy. It was new for Kura, however, she got her act together very quick and said with her usual (fake) smile. "Why? You didn't do anything wrong." She then took the plain glasses girl by her hand and took her to the classes of the night class. Then, her grip tighten again. It was always likewise if the plain girl spotted the blonde pure- blood. In that section, she was alike her. Although she is terrified, she still had that stubborn look on her face which let her glance stayed on the pure- blood without fail, as if she tried to pursuade her to do something. As if -- she was chasing for a certain goal. However, Kura didn't think so. Again, she was just thinking too much about the little girl.


FYI: Added Estasa to the NPCs.

“What you need to know about the past is that no matter what has happened, it has all worked together to bring you to this very moment. And this is the moment you can choose to make everything new.
Right now.”





Asami was annoyed.

Not only had the other Prefect snuck in on her session, but a moron had came right in, crushed the piano, and then walked back out without a word, only a bow."I hope you fall down the stairs! Asshole!" She called after the boy before standing up and crossing the room so she could look out the window. She had seen that boy before with the Night Class jerk, she would speak to him about his friends incompetence for musical instruments later. She leaned carefully out the open window and took in a deep breath, trying to calm herself. "This school is getting so weird." A voice made her jump and nearly lose her footing, which would have sent her to the ground below, if it hadn't been for the hand that steadied her. "Ineed it is." Asami spun around and glared at the older man, she was about to snap at him for sneaking up on her, but a howl cut through the air, stopping her from saying anything. The world turned black for a moment, and she could hear a similar, if not high pitched howl, it was the same howl from all those years ago...

The dark haired man frowned and leaned over the girl and out the winodw so he could gaze up at the moon. "That's not good." He mumbled lightly before clapping his hands together and turning back towards the human girl. "Why don't you take a walk with me, Miss.Toko." Arashi smiled brightly at her making her release a sigh and nod in response. He smiled down at her and led her out of the music room and down the hall. He planned to take her to the Headmaster so she would at least be in a safer location, however, once they were outside and halfway to the other building, well they never reached their destination.




The air was drenched in that horrid scent. It assaulted her senses and burned the back of her throat. Her mind was hazed, clouded with nothing but anger and the need to maul something. This wasn't Shizuka. This wasn't the human girl who attended Cross Academy as it's prefect, no. This was a monster, a being not supposed to exist but only in legends and fairy tales. The howl that emitted from it's throat was clear indication that it wasn't a legend, but in fact very much true. Shizuka turned her head, her nose high in the air as she inhaled. The scent was coming strongly in that direction, and without as much as a hesitation, she was off. Her paws dug into the ground as she ran on all fours, the earth being swept away in the process. She was destroying the ground with every step she took, trying to get to the scent that caused such great discomfort. Her amber eyes focused in on two figures, a snarl ripping from her elongated snout as she stared at the two.

She didn't know these creatures, but the male was emitting a scent that caused her to want to rip it off of him. She wanted to devour his head, his insides, everything about that man she wanted to consume. The female, however, sent Shizuka on edge as the hairs along her snow-white coat stood up. Something very familiar about the female's scent sent the wolf on edge. It was as if it had once almost claimed the girls' life, and had failed. It was odd, but the wolf wanted nothing more than to tear the girl's limbs apart. But first, that male...she wanted him first.




The snarl that ripped through the air behind the two sent chills up Asami's back, making her spin around in record time. Arashi quickly followed suit, and he nearly screamed, but then again, that was Asami's job. A scream cut through the air as she stumbled back, away from the beast. I've seen that before. Her breath hitched as memeorys came flying back, slamming into her like a brick wall. Blood, screams of pain, snarling, a child crying for help, running from a beast as it charged at her. She took a step back, but stumbled over a root that was sticking up from the ground and fell to her backside. Arashi stared for a split second before crouching protectivly in front of the human, this wasn't normal, wolves didn't just run around the Academy, but in any case, he would need to protect the human. From afar, a pair of glowing blue eyes watched the secne unfold, a smirk forming upon his lips as he took in the form of the large wolf, the frightend human, and the confused Noble. Tonight would be a night to remember.




Shizuka kept her fangs bared at the two in front of her. She watched as the female made to get away and could smell the fear rolling off of the girl in waves. It sent shivers down her spine in delectable delights. She was revelling in the girl's fear and when the girl tripped, Shizuka took a step forward, ready to lunge at the girl's throat and rip it out. Before she could, the male stepped in her way, crouching defensively in front of the girl, causing Shizuka to growl at the male and stomp her foot in a threatening manner. She crouched, digging her claws into the ground like a predator ready to pounce on it's prey. As such, she did, landing on the male and grabbing him by the shoulders with her claws. If she had been a normal wolf, she wouldn't have been able to even grasp the man, but she wasn't. Her paws, although resembling paws, were more like actual hands covered in fur and calloused pads. With a loud snarl, her fangs were in his shoulder, blood pouring out like ripplets of water.




Arashi cried out in pain as the fangs cut into his shoulder, causeing his blood to pool out onto the ground and sink into the earth. Asami had already stood back up, but something stopped her from running. If it hadn't been for the man, the wolf would have killed her in an instant. Something clicked in the back of her mind, and before she could comperend what she was doing, her sword was out. With a quick slash, she cut through the wolves shoulder blade and left and large gash in it's place. "Get off of him!" Her voice wavered but her arm stayed steady as she raised her sword and took on her fighting stance. She honestly didn't think she would be able to take on this beast, but what else could she do? She couldn't leave the older man and go hide, surly it would be able to follow her scent and kill her.




Shizuka bit further into the male's shoulder, drawing more blood from the man. She was about to rip his arm off when a searing pain slashed against her shoulder. With a painful howl, she stumbled away from the man, whimpering and licking at the wound before her golden gaze burned with hatred towards the girl. She snarled at the girl, showcasing her white fangs as she ran towards the girl. Her intent to kill shone behind her amber eyes as she collided with the girl. She bit onto the instrument that attacked her, severing it in the process before turning her attention towards the girl. She growled, droplets of saliva falling from her teeth as she dug her paws into the girls' shoulder. Her jaw then began to descend towards the girl's neck. Death would be certain for the human girl if someone didn't intervene.




Her breath hitched as she watched the wolf slowly lower it's head towards her throat, it was kill her. More memeories flashed by, she had been in the same possision before when she was child, she remembered now, her family had been out camping, they were just spending happy family time, when a white wolf came out of no where. Before the girl could blink her parents were dead, and the wolf have turned on her. She had spun around to run, but sharp claws had caught into her back, making her fall to the ground. The girl had spun around only to be pinned to the ground by large claws, however, before the beast could end her life, someone had ripped it off her. Suddenly the weight that held her down was gone, and before her stood a man in all black, he gazed down at her with glowing blue eyes, before holding out a much more sterdy looking sword for her to grasp. Once she had a hold on the edge of the sword, he used the end to pull the girl upright. "This should be much more effective." He smirked down at Asami as the blade suddenly glowed a vibrent shade of crimson that shown out through the night and added a better sense of light. Suddenly, the man was gone, but his voice carried out on the wind, humor eveident within it. "Don't let the pain old you back." She turned back towards the wolf and raised her sword, blood dripped from both of her shoulders.




Before Shizuka could tear out the girl's throat, she was violently torn from the girl, a surprised snarl leaving her lips in the process. She found herself standing on her legs and gazed at the one responsible. Her ears flattened against the back of her head as she once again showcased her fangs. Once again, another scent filtered through her nostrils. They flared at the familiar scent as Shizuka stood, staring at the man warily now as she growled. This newcomer would not get in the way of this predator and her prey. The girl, and the other male were hers to kill. She needed to kill them, however; the presence the man radiated was almost as if it were a calming sensation and she didn't feel the need to mutilate this person. Even if she wanted to, the man suddenly disappeared, leaving the girl open once again even with the new weapon in hand. The crimson color that radiated from it caused the wolf to be cautious. The color, something about it caused the wolf to dislike it. Instead of charging the girl, it released a noise similar to that of a person snorting. She stared at the girl, almost as if daring her to bare her fangs back. In a way, Shizuka was now challenging the girl.




Asami watched the wolf carefuly, everything in her body telling her to run away as fast as possible, to get away, but she could bring herself to do it. Part of her wanted to rise to the challenge, but even with all of her of her training, she wouldn't be able to beat this beast. Slowly she made her way towards the fallen Arashi, who had watched the whole exchange with half lidded eyes. Slowly the man rose up and stood behind Asami, one hand clutching her bloody shoulder while the other reached out to lay upon the human girl's shoulder. Slowly, Asami crouched down, her eyes narrowing and she took a step forward. "I remember you." She hissed through clenched teeth, her hand clenching the end of the sword so tightly that her knuckles were white. "I remember you..." She spoke more clearly now, while letting out a deep breath. When it came to the Kendo Club, she never backed down from a challenge, if she let a monster change that now, she would have to quit the club, because she wouldn't be able to look at herself ever again. Matching the Wolf, she pulled her upper lip back to bare her teeth, a strange sound that was caught between a hiss and a snarl leaving her lips.




Shizuka watched as the girl slowly moved about, her tail standing erect as she continued to hold her gaze. Should the girl drop her gaze, Shizuka would be there to tear out her throat and rip her apart into pieces. She'd feast on that flesh of her, watch as the life faded from the girl's eyes as she did so. The girl spoke words that she couldn't understand at the moment. Not that words mattered to the beast, but regardless she understood. The feeling was mutual, she remembered the girl as well. Although it had been years, her scent was unmistakeable. There was no particular reason why she wanted this girl dead, however; all she knew was that her flesh should be hanging from her teeth about now. The girl continued to chant the same words as Shizuka remained in her spot. All of the hairs on her form were on edge, waiting for the human to make her move. Then, the girl snarled back at her. If she could laugh, she would have. Instead, it only fueled the rage within the beast as she accepted her challenge.

Instantly, the wolf was in front of Asami, trying to clamp down on the sword to remove it from her grasp. She knew already the sharp object would pierce her flesh much like the first one, however; as she bit into it, a searing pain crossed her lips. She howled in pain, jumping back from Asami in the process. What was that object? She rubbed at her jaw with her paw, an unusual movement for an ordinary wolf, however; her eyes seemed to glow almost crimson at the anger. She began to circle the girl, however; another scent captured her interest. It was disgusting to her. Horrid, so much so that it almost caused her to choke on it. Glancing at Asami, the wolf curled her lips back before jumping above the girl and crashing through one of the school windows. She'd deal with the girl later, but this scent. The owner of this scent needed to perish first.




Asami moved carefully, raising her sword as the wolf suddenly jumped towards her. It was most likely trying to rip it from her grasp, but before the action could be put into action, the glade seemingly burned the wolves flesh. The human jumped at the sound of pain that echoed around her as the wolf jumped away and begun to rub it's jaw. Asa blinked in confusion and tilted her head to the side. Did wolves do that? Her eyes widened as her own eyes met crimson colored ones, red with rage. As the wolf begun to circle her, Asami moved it's every move, however, before she could perpair herself for another attack, the wolf curled her lips one more time, and then jumped right over her into the building. Asami's breath hitched as her eyes widened in horror. There were other people inside that building, people that would die. She turned back towards Arashi, who sighed loudly and nodded in agreement. "As long as you are fine with risking your own life..." He carefully swept the unexpecting girl into his arms and jumped through the now ruined window. Once inside he carefully set the human down and together the followed the scent of blood, right to the Night Class.

In a high tree stood the same man who had given the human as priceless weapon. He had made it just for her, with her past, it was clear she would need it, after all, the effects wouldn't work for any other person, only that girl could wield the sword that had been made to end the wolves life, however, it could be used for other things, it was all up to the human and how she chose to use it through, he had faith that she would would not dissapoint him in the end, and so with a small laugh, the man vanished with a passing wind. As much as he wished to see the Night Class uprooted, he had other matters to attend too.
