Passively, Kaname smiled. “Closer.”

The pureblood reached for her small shoulders, gathering her small being in his arms, holding her gently, yet firmly like a new born bird. His strong arm pressed her against him, one hand pressuring her shoulders. At first, both arms and legs refused to move. She shuffled to his side cautiously like a bashful fawn, halting at the evading acquaintance of his body heat. Intently, Kaname listened to the laboured pounding of her pulse, sensing her body tense in his presence.

‘Yuuki, at times like this, I wonder what runs through your little mind…’

Expectantly, Yuuki retreated into her usual habits, and began to play with buttons of his trench coat, but would not look up at him. Despite his attempts to make her look up, she determinedly continued to play with the buttons. Kaname smirked lightly, finding the same charm of his sweet Yuuki as endearing as he could remember. It was one which he so ardently admired and deeply loved.

Taking a deep breath, he listened to the muffled whispers that escaped from her lips. The slow nods of her head that affirmed his suspicions were but the only form of communication he managed to evoke from her. Obliviously she continued to stare at his chest, twisting the fabric of his coat between her merciless fingers, in hope that the red stain upon her cheeks would go on to be left unnoticed. Yet despite her attempts, her words contracted her attempts. It had only led to further embarrassment, tarnishing Kaname’s attempts to lure her out of her hole.

“My dearest, Yuuki.” Kaname replied with breathless tenderness, a dry chuckle leaving his lips. “How your imagination runs wild at times. Tell me, what occupies your mind?” The pureblood murmured, shifting his hands to her side.

‘How quickly you mature, Yuuki.’

After a long while, Kaname closed his eyes in acceptance, aware that his moment of fun had come to an end. “It’s alright, Yuuki…” His warm palm soothingly caressed the back of her head, dipping into the slope of her back to where it comfortably rested on her hip. Regardless of his kind words, he saw that she was not reassured - but it mattered not, now he knew the cause of her quiet behaviour. In truth, Kaname was immensely pleased that she had revealed the source of her shyness, for he in truth desired that between them there be none of the barriers that the standards of propriety and civility often created.

image

Dropping to her knees, the pureblood blinked in bemusement, watching her curl into a ball in absolute horror. Kaname was aware of her typical antics and emotional rides, yet by far Yuuki had never gone to such lengths. From afar, one may have supposed that is was the typical case of a child in the midst of a tantrum, and a sympathetic father trying to console his child – yet to no avail. Exhaling slowly, Kaname bent over her crouched form.

 Dragged by her loving gaze, Kaname caressed her lips endearingly. His senses were intoxicated by her spell. Given the time and opportunity, his response would have been extreme, vociferous, snapping quickly like a harp string.

“It’s alright, Yuuki.” Half-heartedly, Kaname inclined to her height, taking the camera into his care.

image

By the time Yuuki finally managed to suppress her sudden rush of emotions, everything around them had gone quiet again, as if the peaceful silence of such a sacred place had never been disrupted to begin with. Her small head slowly dropped down to her lap, only her large, glossy eyes now visible as she buried her face deeper against the soft fabric of her dress, trying to hide her bright, flushed cheeks from his curious eyes. Not that it was anything he hadn’t already seen at least a thousand times. Never before she had felt so deeply ashamed of herself for something she had said, and she certainly did say a lot of silly things every single day, even to Kaname himself. And the worst thing of it all was that in attempt to correct herself, she had unconsciously made the whole thing sound even worse than it actually was!

There was no way she would have ever been able to look at him straight in his eyes again after what she had just said! The only thought of meeting his probably very amused gaze right now was enough to make her face burst into a whole new shade of the colour red. But it was not like she could keep avoiding him forever either. And not because she couldn’t do that, but simply because she didn’t wanted to. Regardless of the embarrassment that she was feeling right now, the words that had just escaped from her pesky little mouth were nothing but the absolute truth. He was able to make her feel in a way she had never felt before, and as tremendously terrifying as all of those unknown feelings were for her, there was absolutely nothing about it all that the young princess would have changed. That didn’t meant that she had wanted him to know all of that, though. Maybe it was time to start learning how to talk less, after all. It probably wasn’t such a bad idea.

image

A soft sigh managed to escape from her slightly parted lips as the young Kuran princess wrapped tightly her arms around her own legs in attempt to curl onto herself and become even smaller than what she already was, probably in hope to disappear. His soft whisper made her tremble softly, and with her small fingers latched rightly around the silk material of her dress, she quickly raised it up even more to cover her entire face, fighting against that side of her that wanted nothing more than comply to his gentle request, and the one that was still way too embarrassed to be able to look in his direction, or to even raise her head from her current hiding spot which wasn’t proving itself to be as effective as she had initially hoped it would have been, to be completely honest.

Closer, he said. He wanted her to be even closer to him. And who was she to deny him anything when she had just gave herself to him for the rest of the day? Before she had the time to truly think about it and to eventually end up reconsidering her choice, the brunette quickly rose up to her feet, erasing that small distance that still kept them apart by throwing her arms around his tall frame, her hands slipping up the smooth, supple skin of his back to hook over his shoulders. “I’m closer now.” She breathed softly, burying her face against his chest, the evidence of her embarrassment hidden from the soft creases of his coat. “As close as I can be…” The girl murmured quietly as she pressed a small kiss right over his heart, her soft, rosy lips curling unintentionally into a small smile. In the future, Yuuki would have never remembered where or when she had found the courage to completely disregard her embarrassment and make such a bold move with him. In truth, she wasn’t even sure if she was still awake, or if it was all only a beautiful dream, another trick of her devious mind.

image

Her small fingers latched tightly around his coat, his sudden embarrassing question causing her to pout and to smack him lightly on his shoulder, her head shaking softly. “I told you I didn’t meant for it to sound in that way. And my imagination does not run wild.” She protested lightly, nuzzling her face into his chest with a cute sound. “What’s in my mind, you ask?” The brunette repeated under her breath, taking a few seconds to ponder about his question. “I believe the easiest way to answer to your question is to sum it up in one single word, and that word is ‘you’, Kaname.” The princess muttered quietly, somehow finding enough courage to raise her gaze upwards and look up at him with a nervous smile, her bottom lip shaking slightly. “I might have phrased that out in the wrong way, but… I still mean every single word of what I just said. When we are this close, and even when we’re apart… it seems like I can never stop thinking about you.” She confessed bluntly, trying to ignore the warmth that instantly crept to her face the moment those words left her mouth. Since she had already come this far, she might as well finish the job. It was not like he would have suddenly started to despise her if she were to tell him what she was thinking, right? And if he wanted to know, she would have told him. Everything.

The girl exhaled a soft sigh of appreciation as his gentle hand caressed the back of her head, feeling somewhat reassured by his delicate touch. His warmth, and his scent… just having him so close to her was almost mind blowing for the little vampire princess. But how was she supposed to convey those feelings to him, when she herself couldn’t properly understand at least half of what she feeling? “I-… I really don’t know what runs through my head, Kaname.” The younger pureblood confessed bluntly, feeling a little silly to say that out loud considering that it was still her thoughts and her feelings they were talking about, and her not knowing wasn’t exactly the best way to start that kind of discussion with him. “You have no idea of the way my heart beats when you touch me and when you hold me, even when it’s not on purpose. And how it almost jumps out of my chest when I see you again after so long, when you come back home after one of your boring work trips. Yes, those that so often takes you away from me.” She muttered with a soft chuckle, shaking lightly her head and casting her gaze to the ground as she nervously started to play with a long strand of her hair, wrapping it slowly around her finger. “Or how… how everything suddenly turns foggy and unclear when you… when you kiss me.” She added in a soft whisper, almost hoping he hadn’t heard the last part.

image

“I’m not exactly sure how to explain this.” She said quietly, biting softly her bottom lip, clearly embarrassed as words kept spilling past her pink lips, making her wonder for a few seconds as if perhaps she wasn’t talking way too much again. “All of my thoughts, all the things that I feel, that you make me feel… I honestly don’t understand at least half of them.” She confessed, squeezing tightly the soft fabric of his clothes in between her fingers. “It’s all so new for me, you make me feel things that I’ve never felt before, and it’s weird and strange and… scary, somehow. The vampire side of me craves for your blood, to latch onto your throat and devour you until I can taste your feelings in it. But the other side of me, the ‘human’ one… that part of me craves for you in a whole different way. It is not your blood that she desires, it’s you. It’s your touch, your embrace, your kisses… it’s your love that she desires.” The girl murmured lightly, holding onto the front of his coat almost desperately, her glossy scarlet orb slightly closed. “I feel. I feel everything, Kaname, every single little thing, but I don’t know what they are, how to deal with them and it scares me. It scares me not knowing what I feel.” She sighed softly, resting her forehead against his chest, not daring to look up to see the expression currently painted on his face. Perhaps she didn’t wanted to know, after all.

How peculiar that out of all time the places, she had chosen probably the least suitable one to make a boring monologue about her feelings and thoughts. And weren’t they supposed to take a picture, anyway? Silently, the brunette girl reached out for the camera now in his hands, giving a quick look at it before slowly taking a few steps back, leaning against the supportive railing of the bridge with a nervous giggle. “Let’s just-… l-let’s take this picture now, shall we? Don’t give too much thought to what I just said, I… I honestly don’t know what got into me!” Honestly, she couldn’t have cared less about that picture at the moment, but if that would have distracted him from the all the things she had said so be it. His reaction scared her more than she liked to admit.

image

A knuckle brushed against her cheek and tickled over the edge of her lips. Kaname examined her expression with mild tenderness, feeling his heart skip a beat as her lips pressed against his chest to where his heart continued to pound. A hypnotising sheen appeared in his red eyes, emphasising the endearing features of the creature. Leaning forward, Kaname felt his forehead lightly bump against hers, catching hold of her wrist that clung loosely to his broad shoulders. His warm, perishable breath glided over her mouth and eye lids like butterfly wings.

Before he let his voice interrupt their surrounding silence, her arms slipped across the middle of his back, inviting him into a succouring embrace. Seduced by the sudden warmth, he closed his eyes, now pressing her forcibly against his frame. The arresting definition of his chest almost crushed her until their chests rose and fell simultaneously. They melted perfectly against one another, printing and pressing the other’s form tightly, like sand dissolving into water, like glass being mould within a seething fire. It was enchanting, yet at the same time dreadfully nostalgic. Kaname remembered now, what it felt to be held so dearly.

The thought of occupying her mind ignited a small flame within him. In truth, the selfish creature that he was wanted her to only think of him. He wanted to dominate her thoughts, to the point of where he knew how her mind operated. He wanted to be at the very heart of her consciousness, her dreams, her curiosity, her doubts, her frustration and even her mind as she drifted off to sleep. Kaname even wanted to control her fears, to where he would be the only one to scare her worries away. Logically, the mind was not conscious of the initiative crave of the body. It couldn’t do so much, only think, stir logical assumptions and arouse hesitation. But Kaname had absorbed the memories of sharing intimate moments. A mere touch of her hand and sight of her thrilling stare was enough to replenish a desire of wanting to consume her whole.

Kaname’s rosewood irises paused unexpectedly on hers, his hand secretly caressing the secret fang peeking on her bottom lip. Her lips quivered uncontrollably as quiet murmurs struggled to escape. A searing hot, wet breath shuddered from her parted lips, as Yuuki’s moistened eyes fell to the ground. Her fingers clenched onto the lapels of his dark coat. The warmth licking over his form and body was completely Yuuki. Her power and thoughts, the intrepidness of her longing gaze, cautious but dwelling touch reminded Kaname of all he had missed during their time apart. As long as her gaze remained trained on his, Kaname believed, he knew everything she needed at that moment.

A single knuckle uplifted her face, as his lips converged with hers for a moment. Pulling back an inch Kaname watched her blink hesitantly, doubting the imprint touch of his lips. Her alluring stare exploited him so easily, irradiating all traces of concentration but the urge to touch her. Kaname felt it again, the dangerous urge at the tip of his tongue, a winking touch, almost accidental. If his bestial instinct had taken control of the situation, his mouth would have feasted on her lips, his fangs enticingly brushing her cupid’s brow. The image was so vivid in his mind that Kaname had trouble to distinguish between the boundaries of dream and reality.

If only a kiss were as simple and natural. As of now, it felt dangerous, furtive and damning. In the privacy of their home, Kaname would’ve retreated from his constraints like a fragile candle light fading in the hard wind.

An amorous smile returned her answer. “It’s alright, I know what you want to say.” Kaname whispered, brushing back the intricate locks from her eyes. “In time these conflicted emotions that you wish to understand will become clear to you in time. Have patience, Yuuki. You are still new to many things. With time and growing experience, you will go on to become mature.”

Feeling a small hand press between their bodies, Yuuki took a step back to give room between them. Quietly taking the camera back into her care, she cautiously leaned against the railing and dipped her head down in apology.  Shaking her head, she frowned to herself and seemingly scowled her sudden behaviour, most likely blaming her bold attitude or speech without entirely processing her thoughts correctly. But Kaname did not care, he was only thankful that she had taken the time to open up her thoughts to him.

Bringing his thoughts to a close, he straightened his wrinkled collar, concluding that they would continue their little conversation once they returned home. For now, it was time to swiftly finish off the remaining errands.

“Very well then. Where shall we stand?”

The pureblood’s kind eyes mingled with mysterious intrigue. He touched her flushed cheeks hesitantly, feeling the warmth of her skin spread to his fingertips. Kaname’s hands wove around her back the moment she was in proximity.  Locking his hands on the curve of her spine and under her left ribcage, the pureblood indulged in the mounting heat of her body, seeping into his clothes. Her dragging sweet scent of her being was enough to drive him mad.

image

Listening to her strained whisper that overflowed with guilt, his grip around her tiny frame tightened. By now he was able to feel the rising of her chest against his, and hear the inaudible quiver of her breath.

Closing his eyes, he nuzzled her throat tenderly. “That’s enough, Yuuki.” Kaname breathed against her ear, allowing her enchanting scent and the soft tunes of her beating heart to consume his mind. “Do not apologise to me with such an expression. I will not accept it. Do you not recall the words I told you earlier? I accompanied you out of my own will. I care little for whom or what these errands may be for. Today, I only wish to be in your company and that is all.”

Revelling in the softness of her skin against his, Kaname opened his eyes to peer down to see her face. Shrouded behind her curtain of hair, large and solemn ruby eyes gleamed with a sultry elegance. At last, a fond smile encompassed his lips. Although Yuuki was not in the brightest of moods, he found her frowned expression somewhat cute. Perhaps it was the way her lips curled outwards when she pouted, enticing the pureblood further to taste her ravenous, fleshy petals. Then again, perhaps it was the way her glossy eyes were filled with sincerity and naïve anxiety. If granted permission, he would’ve kissed her closed lids with such a beguiling mixture of tenderness.image

The sudden flash of light broke him away from his chain of thoughts. Kaname narrowed his eyes to ease the unwelcoming black dots that obscured his vision temporarily. Managing to stay closely behind her, he used the railing of the bridge for guidance. Cautiously looking over his shoulder, he continued to watch Yuuki experiment with the camera, heaving the occasional puff here and there.

Strangely enough, the short shuffling of her feet as she made her way towards him caught his curiosity. As he saw her face brighten, unconsciously, a smile crept to his eyes. Her cheeks were forever red and blooming like a fuchsia from either the chilly air or happiness that she had at last managed to get the camera to work.

“Yuuki,” came his voice, softly, half in question, half in verification.

As she turned to him, for a long moment, they gazed in silence. Kaname’s heart swelled in his chest as he beheld his dear girl standing across from him, and looking at him with such sweet affection.

image

“Yuuki,” he said again after a time, his tone rich and sleek, breaking the gentle silence between them. “Why do you stand so far away from me? Stand close to me.” Kaname at last replied, allowing his eyes to roam free over her elegant figure, which as of now, continued to tremble with absolute fright and confusion much to his amusement.

By now, the pureblood’s smile had grown and one eyebrow arched impertinently. He was awaiting her reply.

Despite being completely alone in the public gardens at the moment, and far, far away from the chaos and the ruckus of the small, yet lively town, her reaction to his so sudden touch was the same as if he had just embraced her in front of a crowd of people staring straight at them, and with a camera on to record the whole scene. Her funny high-pitched squeal of surprise broke the calm, tranquil atmosphere for a short while, yet long enough for a few birds to fly away from their nests on one of the nearest trees, making her feel almost guilty for a brief second. “W-Wha-… W-What are you doing Kaname?” She asked nervously, obviously embarrassed by the sudden closeness of their bodies, especially since she had just kissed him out of nowhere only a few minutes earlier, and had been fantasizing to do it again up until… well, now.

image

The young princess sighed quietly as his arm wrapped delicately around her waist, effectively trapping her into his embrace, her breath grazing lightly his cheek. How did she had ended up in this situation exactly? Or even better, did he had any idea of the feelings that his closeness was able to arouse in her? If she hadn’t known herself better, she would have probably thought she was about to faint right there and then. Not that it was something so impossible considering the warmth of her skin… And how red her face currently was. And yet, even like this, she still couldn’t stop gazing into his almost hypnotizing crimson orbs, bewitched by the beauty of his gaze. Was she supposed to do something right now? Say something, perhaps? She honestly couldn’t remember at all. Was he able to hear the quickening of her pulse? How loud and strong her body reacted to his when they were so close?

At that moment, Yuuki felt like she had suddenly forgot how to talk. Her lips were parted, her small tongue running along them in a nervous way, yet no sound could be heard coming from her pretty little mouth. The only thing she was able to do was resting her hands upon his broad shoulders as he gently leaned down to her height, closing his eyes for moment as he tenderly nuzzled her throat. The sweet gesture and the ever so delicate feeling of his breath tickling the shell of her ear coaxed a small chuckle from the younger vampire’s lips, her perfectly manicured nails digging slightly into the thick fabric of his dark coat.

“You’re right, I know.” The girl replied sweetly to his loving words of reassurance, her small head shaking softly in disappointment. “But I thought that-… I mean… I wanted this to be a special day for us, a day to remember.” She tried to explain with a cute pout, her gaze locked on the ground, soft maroon curls caressing delicately the side of her pretty face. “Don’t get me wrong! To me, every day spent with you is special, even the most common one. But I was really looking forward to spend some time with you away from everything and everyone, it’s been so long since the last time we’ve been able to do something like this, and yet, look at me! Not even a day here and I’ve already found a way to ruin all the fun. Such a great fiancée am I!” She murmured with a gentle sigh, playing with one of the large buttons that kept his coat sealed tight, and his body warm. “This was supposed to be about ‘us’, Kaname. Just me and you. No one else involved.”

image

She wasn’t expecting for him to understand. She also didn’t understand herself and her way of thinking sometimes. When he had told her they would have been spending some time away from the mansion for a while, just the two of them, she had been ecstatic to hear the news. In her mind, she had pictured so many things they could do, so many ways to spend some quality time together, to get closer to him. Because in the end, that’s what those trips were to her, an occasion to get closer to him like she simply couldn’t do when they were at home. And although they were definitely close right now, it was not exactly in the same way she meant. Not that she minded of course, but still… “I’m sorry. It seems like all I’m able to do is constantly apologize. See? I did it again!” The pureblood commented almost exasperated, shaking furiously her head, finally making up her mind. “Okay, enough! I’m the one ruining this outing now! If it’s my company that you wish for, then that is exactly what you will have! I’m completely yours, for the entire day! …Or what’s left of it anyway.” She chuckled softly, her smile widening as her eyes met his gentle gaze.

The sight of such a sweet, affectionate smile upon his face brought peace to her heart. Who cares if they still had to do so many things in such little time! And why did it matter if their so called ‘date’ had turned out to be not even close as she had originally thought it would be? They were still together after all, weren’t they? And regardless of the outing being perfect or not, each second spent with Kaname by her side, be it joyous or even the the saddest one, was absolutely perfect at Yuuki’s eyes. And that was all that mattered to her right now.

She would have liked to complain when the much appreciated warmth of his body suddenly left her, but the unexpected flash of light from the camera and the fact that they were still out in a public place, even though they were still very much alone in there, prevented her from doing so. Instead, the brunette slowly headed towards the bridge, feeling a shiver running up her spine as she suddenly became aware of a pair of very well known crimson eyes staring cautiously at her from behind. It was no surprise then to hear just a feeble mewl in response when he called her name, any other coherent thought inside her head being swept away from the tenderness coating his voice.

image

It took her a few seconds then, to fully understand his request. It was definitely hilarious to see how even such simple words could confuse her so much, to the point it was almost hard to even think properly. And his eyes roaming over her body weren’t certainly helping her finding back her lost composure. “I-I’m far?” She was finally able to reply after a few minutes in which she quickly had to recall how to move her tongue to speak. Stripped once more of the ability to talk, the little pureblood nervously moved a few steps forward, not sure as to how close he wanted her to be. If it was her choice, she wouldn’t have wasted time to jump in his arms, but that wasn’t exactly the kind of picture she would have considered appropriate to send to her foster father. Despite knowing what her rightful place was, he was still quite attached to his ‘little baby Yuuki’, just like a real father would.

“L-Like this?” She asked uncertain as she moved another step closer to his absolutely perfect being, her hands shaking lightly. “I-I don’t want to stand far, i-it’s just that… When I’m close to you my heart starts pounding so hard and fast, and my head spins and my mind begins to imagine all sorts of things and I-…” Yuuki could only imagine how funny it must have been as a spectator, to watch her face grow from bright pink to probably one of the darkest and deeper shades of red her face could acquire. Did she had really just said that? Oh please, please, let all of this be just a dream! “No! No! T-That came out wrong! Totally wrong! I-I didn’t meant for that to sound the way it did! I just-… I just…! Oh, why am I even still talking?” The utterly embarrassed brunette muttered desperately to herself, bending down on her knees to hide her face against the soft fabric of her gown, the camera lying abandoned at her side. If she would have had the possibility to disappear, she would have probably already done that by now.

image

Passively, Kaname smiled. “Closer.”

The pureblood reached for her small shoulders, gathering her small being in his arms, holding her gently, yet firmly like a new born bird. His strong arm pressed her against him, one hand pressuring her shoulders. At first, both arms and legs refused to move. She shuffled to his side cautiously like a bashful fawn, halting at the evading acquaintance of his body heat. Intently, Kaname listened to the laboured pounding of her pulse, sensing her body tense in his presence.

‘Yuuki, at times like this, I wonder what runs through your little mind…’

Expectantly, Yuuki retreated into her usual habits, and began to play with buttons of his trench coat, but would not look up at him. Despite his attempts to make her look up, she determinedly continued to play with the buttons. Kaname smirked lightly, finding the same charm of his sweet Yuuki as endearing as he could remember. It was one which he so ardently admired and deeply loved.

Taking a deep breath, he listened to the muffled whispers that escaped from her lips. The slow nods of her head that affirmed his suspicions were but the only form of communication he managed to evoke from her. Obliviously she continued to stare at his chest, twisting the fabric of his coat between her merciless fingers, in hope that the red stain upon her cheeks would go on to be left unnoticed. Yet despite her attempts, her words contracted her attempts. It had only led to further embarrassment, tarnishing Kaname’s attempts to lure her out of her hole.

“My dearest, Yuuki.” Kaname replied with breathless tenderness, a dry chuckle leaving his lips. “How your imagination runs wild at times. Tell me, what occupies your mind?” The pureblood murmured, shifting his hands to her side.

‘How quickly you mature, Yuuki.’

After a long while, Kaname closed his eyes in acceptance, aware that his moment of fun had come to an end. “It’s alright, Yuuki…” His warm palm soothingly caressed the back of her head, dipping into the slope of her back to where it comfortably rested on her hip. Regardless of his kind words, he saw that she was not reassured - but it mattered not, now he knew the cause of her quiet behaviour. In truth, Kaname was immensely pleased that she had revealed the source of her shyness, for he in truth desired that between them there be none of the barriers that the standards of propriety and civility often created.

Dropping to her knees, the pureblood blinked in bemusement, watching her curl into a ball in absolute horror. Kaname was aware of her typical antics and emotional rides, yet by far Yuuki had never gone to such lengths. From afar, one may have supposed that is was the typical case of a child in the midst of a tantrum, and a sympathetic father trying to console his child – yet to no avail. Exhaling slowly, Kaname bent over her crouched form.

 Dragged by her loving gaze, Kaname caressed her lips endearingly. His senses were intoxicated by her spell. Given the time and opportunity, his response would have been extreme, vociferous, snapping quickly like a harp string.

“It’s alright, Yuuki.” Half-heartedly, Kaname inclined to her height, taking the camera into his care.

How is it that you are mine?

He felt his breath catch in his throat. Accepting his newly found warmth, Kaname melted into her warm embrace. It was one that could melt away freshly fallen snow, leaving in its wake a harvest of spring flowers. Remains of tension retreated from his body at the sight of her petite frame pressed into his chest. It left the pureblood in a sense of awe and peace that made any anxiety evaporate like mountain mist on a summer morning. The effect she had on him, or even the ability to put him at ease had perplexed him. The thought of it all pulled a tender smile at the edges of his lips. It caused a flood of warmth to surge through his chest.

image

Despite what some assumed, Yuuki’s happiness was of utmost importance to him. From the early age of a young boy, he had promised to make her happy and protect her with his life. Perhaps it was his own selfish assumption, but Kaname had always believed that she was born to be protected under his watchful eye. The countless of promises made between them was a silent promise no other knew. It was their own secret – much like their conflicting emotions that driven them over turbulent tides for many years. Passion. Love. Desire. The all shared the same meaning, which each faced and were tormented by.

He looked to her raised face. As of now, all about her seemed silence. Only but her eyes reflected the vermillion red glow of the rising sun in the horizon, her hair, dark and shining, spilling over her shoulder like a midnight shroud. Kaname resisted the urge to lift his hand and feel the delicate warmth of her jaw. Instead he closed his eyes for a long moment, revelling in the feel of the sun’s faint warm kisses against his face, as though he was touching the heat of her pale skin against his hand.

image

The pureblood’s eyes opened once more to instantly fall into a deep bliss when her lips claimed his. Brief and short, he leaned back, his eyes lightening with wonder. Kaname could not decipher the message within her eyes; it was an encrypted letter that held the mysteries of the world. It was at times like this where he felt he was distanced as well as equally close to her.

A few moments passed, as the two looked around them. Soon enough, their search for a suitable location had come to an end. Following the direction of her gaze, crimson irises pinpointed on a koi pond that glittered in the pre-morning day sunlight, sending fractured pools of light to dance over the rocks that edged it, as well as the underside of the small arching bridge that crossed it. The soft rustles of wind in flora preceded the melodic tinkle of wind chimes as it tugged playfully at them, the plants in the garden rustling softly. It was peaceful, it was tranquil, it was…

There was a certain weight to the quiet that had settled over the garden, an odd weight of expectancy as though the quiet expected to be broke, shattered really, within moments. It was a quality that hadn’t existed in this particular place for a long time.

“It will do.” Kaname murmured gently, dripping his eyes closed in acceptance. “If you wish to take a picture then I suggest using a timer.” He replied, leaning over to draw her attention to the small dial beside its lens.

Confused eyes followed absently his movements as he slowly leaned towards her, his hand near the lens and his gaze deeply focused onto the camera, as if he was trying to bring something to her attention that seemed to be very much elsewhere right at the moment. It had all happened in a second. A tiny, little second in which he had casually moved forward, bringing his body closer to hers and causing her breath to hitch in her throat. Maybe it was all because of her stupid, enhanced senses and the intoxicating scent that his skin had. Or perhaps it was just the memory of her lips brushing against his to play with her mind and make her so fidgety right now.

image

Whichever it was, the only thing Yuuki knew for sure right now was that she had been staring at the camera in her hands for at least 5 minutes straight now, without understanding a single word of what he had just said to her. And for as much as she knew he always appreciated her honesty, it was not like she could simply smile and him and ask him to repeat himself because she had been way too busy thinking about his lips pressed against hers to pay attention to what he had just said. Even she knew how wrong that sounded, and Yuuki wasn’t exactly a master with words.

She was extremely grateful he had been so kind not to question her so sudden gesture of affection, nor to comment the little scribble on the camera that had his name on it surrounded by a bunch of poorly drawn hearts, yet it looked like she was doing all by herself in attempt to embarrass herself further in front of him as of now. In a way or another, it seemed to her that she simply couldn’t be around him without her face looking like a giant strawberry ready to be picked up… or a very ripe tomato. Soft, burgundy orbs scanned briefly her surroundings before dropping back down to the old camera in her hands, her small fingers still fidgeting with every button they could find in hope something happened, only able to nod silently in response to his words, seriously hoping he didn’t notice how distracted she had been for the past few minutes. Now, that would have been fun to explain!

In all honesty, Yuuki had never been very good when it came to technological objects like the one in her hands. Sure, she had a large collection of pictures of her and Yori in an album back in her old room at the Academy, but it was usually her friend who did everything for her. By the time Yori had finished with the camera, all there was left for her to do was smile, really. The weak, morning breeze blew softly past her, raising goosebumps on her flesh. She was starting to become impatient, and it wasn’t exactly difficult to see. They still had to go back to town to search for a cute photo frame after taking the picture, and to buy the recipe book! And on top of it all, she still hadn’t decided for a present for her best friend Yori! It was all a big mess! She really wasn’t expecting that a simple thing such as gift shopping could have been going on for so long.

She had promised him that it would have been quick, that they could have spent the rest of the day together, doing whatever he wished to do, once it was all over. But as she thought about it now, under the glowing sky, her fair complexion kissed by the first, gentle rays of the morning sun, the younger pureblood slowly realised that nothing of it had been as quick and simple as she had originally planned it, or at least imagined it to be.

They had wasted the majority of the day that she had labelled as ‘their’ day, just to run her errands. She had been dragging him all around town since they had left the small, cosy restaurant, barely giving him any attention at all. Well… except for the last couple of minutes of course, the princess silently corrected herself as one of her fingers traced gently the line of her rosy, supple lips, a delicate pink flush adorning her cheeks. “I’m sorry.” She so suddenly apologized with a weak smile, her porcelain face still half hidden by her long, chocolate curls. “This outing is a complete disaster, I know. First I oblige you to follow me around as I run my own silly errands no one cares about, and now I’m fumbling with this stupid thing for years, unable to even take a simple picture.” She told him softly, muttering what sounded like a small curse against the god-forbidden object in her hands.

“It wasn’t this that I had in mind when I said that I wanted our little outing to be like a date…” She added with a small sigh, shaking lightly her head. “If we really have to consider this like a date, then it surely must be the worst date ever, right?” The girl commented with a sad chuckle, suddenly yelping in surprise as a flash erupted from the camera, right when she had decided to turn the lens in her direction, blinding her sight for a few seconds. “O-…Okay! I-I think I know how to take a picture now!” Was the only thing she was able to say as she rapidly squinted her eyes in discomfort for the bright light, taking a few steps in the direction of the bridge, still puzzled as to how they were supposed to take this infamous picture. And no, not in a technical way this time.

image

The little pureblood turned around just once to be sure he was following her before heading straight towards the middle of the black pond, keeping her eyes firmly on the ground. She was only grateful there was no one else around besides them at the moment, because to tell the truth, Yuuki wasn’t sure that she would have been able to sustain the embarrassment of being so clumsy to can’t even take a picture without going to hide somewhere if someone other than Kaname were to see her right now. Not that the fact that he was there made it less embarrassing, but she was quite sure he was used to her clumsiness by now, so she could cope with it somehow. Well… more or less.

She stood still for a few seconds as they reached the wooden bridge, trying to find the right words to express her doubts without sounding extremely silly or pathetic, not really sure if there was one to begin with. The moment her lips parted again and words flew past her mouth, Yuuki finally realised that no, there probably wasn’t a way for her to to explain herself without sounding ridiculous even to her own ears. She really doubted that Kaname minded, yet she still couldn’t help herself from blushing profusely in hearing her own words, mentally scolding herself for acting so childishly at the moment. “I-I… U-Umm… S-Should we… embrace, or…? I-I mean, err… h-how do we…?”

image

 The pureblood’s kind eyes mingled with mysterious intrigue. He touched her flushed cheeks hesitantly, feeling the warmth of her skin spread to his fingertips. Kaname’s hands wove around her back the moment she was in proximity.  Locking his hands on the curve of her spine and under her left ribcage, the pureblood indulged in the mounting heat of her body, seeping into his clothes. Her dragging sweet scent of her being was enough to drive him mad.

Listening to her strained whisper that overflowed with guilt, his grip around her tiny frame tightened. By now he was able to feel the rising of her chest against his, and hear the inaudible quiver of her breath.

Closing his eyes, he nuzzled her throat tenderly. “That’s enough, Yuuki.” Kaname breathed against her ear, allowing her enchanting scent and the soft tunes of her beating heart to consume his mind. “Do not apologise to me with such an expression. I will not accept it. Do you not recall the words I told you earlier? I accompanied you out of my own will. I care little for whom or what these errands may be for. Today, I only wish to be in your company and that is all.”

Revelling in the softness of her skin against his, Kaname opened his eyes to peer down to see her face. Shrouded behind her curtain of hair, large and solemn ruby eyes gleamed with a sultry elegance. At last, a fond smile encompassed his lips. Although Yuuki was not in the brightest of moods, he found her frowned expression somewhat cute. Perhaps it was the way her lips curled outwards when she pouted, enticing the pureblood further to taste her ravenous, fleshy petals. Then again, perhaps it was the way her glossy eyes were filled with sincerity and naïve anxiety. If granted permission, he would’ve kissed her closed lids with such a beguiling mixture of tenderness.

The sudden flash of light broke him away from his chain of thoughts. Kaname narrowed his eyes to ease the unwelcoming black dots that obscured his vision temporarily. Managing to stay closely behind her, he used the railing of the bridge for guidance. Cautiously looking over his shoulder, he continued to watch Yuuki experiment with the camera, heaving the occasional puff here and there.

Strangely enough, the short shuffling of her feet as she made her way towards him caught his curiosity. As he saw her face brighten, unconsciously, a smile crept to his eyes. Her cheeks were forever red and blooming like a fuchsia from either the chilly air or happiness that she had at last managed to get the camera to work.

“Yuuki,” came his voice, softly, half in question, half in verification.

As she turned to him, for a long moment, they gazed in silence. Kaname’s heart swelled in his chest as he beheld his dear girl standing across from him, and looking at him with such sweet affection.

“Yuuki,” he said again after a time, his tone rich and sleek, breaking the gentle silence between them. “Why do you stand so far away from me? Stand close to me.” Kaname at last replied, allowing his eyes to roam free over her elegant figure, which as of now, continued to tremble with absolute fright and confusion much to his amusement.

By now, the pureblood’s smile had grown and one eyebrow arched impertinently. He was awaiting her reply.

Even as a child I sensed I had seen those eyes before somewhere. And though I don't know why, I vowed to protect this dear warmth to the end.

“My sweet, Yuuki…How fast you’ve grown.” was the only reply the pureblood could utter, his lips moving into a small, contented smile. The heiress of the Kuran clan had become a person of great wit who bore a heart made of pure gold. Abandoning her childish schemes at an early age, Yuuki had done well to adapt to the altering society that surrounded their daily lives. Under the tuition of a particular cerulean eyed male, Aidou had done well to inform her of the worldly vanities, such as poetry and dance. Among them, she had developed her own qualities that were very much similar to his own: Elegant manners, a good sense of negotiation and a keen eye.

image

Allowing her to search through her purse, the pureblood’s eyes trailed upwards to the breaking skies. Clouds on clouds, in volumes driven, curtained round the vault of heaven. With the sun’s light breaking through the pre-morning sky, the dark streaks of cloud became heaven’s flowers when kissed by its glorious light. Its rosy clouds were scattered like swaying poppy’s in the sun’s pathway. The singing world of their air hung exulting in the hues of morning and the heavenly blue; sparks of clouds darted up from gold bars along the horizon, with the flames of the sun streaming over the cold earth that remained partly shrouded in the shadows.

Few amber clouds floated in the sky without a breath of air to move them. By now, the eastern horizon was of a fine golden tint, changing gradually into a pure-apple-green, and from that into the deep blue of the mid-heaven. From what one could see, a river of larks playfully swooped and darted among the clouds, steadily steering through the cool pre-morning air.

image

Under the benign sky, Kaname watched the moths flutter among the heath and hare-bells, listening to the soft wind breathing through the grass. The scenery before him seemed so serene, that at first, he wondered if whether such a fantasy had belonged to reality.

“My, my,” Kaname’s eyes gleamed with admiration and tenderness, “It seems I am unable to find an excuse.” Kaname mused and inclined his head to the side, observing Yuuki’s little hand rummage through her bag hastily.

image

At last, once she had managed to gather her things together, Yuuki plucked a small, bright looking camera from her back. From a mere look, it seemed rather old yet had been kept in good condition over the years. The traces of stickers that had sometime peeled off were distinct, with the occasional doodle scribbled across its back and front. Kaname supposed it was like Yuuki to hold onto her little treasures, keeping them locked away somewhere within their attic, hoping that they would come to good use in the future.

With an amused expression, he watched her fiddle with the block looking object, furrowing her brows and narrowing her eyes, as her fingers worked along its side. At times like this, the pureblood would’ve been content to sit idly in his chair and watch her for hours. There were little examples on where he had taken little interest in her tasks. Kaname was always interested in her little antics, it was a plain fact he could not deny.

The King’s unadorned expression melted to one of hilarity, smirking at her confident reply.

“Yes, I can see that.”  Kaname returned playfully, his irises sparkling with mirth, noticing her cheeks flush into a brilliant red. As she turned on her heels to avoid any further embarrassment, Kaname took the liberty of walking round her, wordlessly taking the small camera from her hand.

Soon enough the camera was fixed and operated correctly. Passing it over to her care, Kaname eased a slow sigh.

“Now then, where shall we take it?”

image

His oh so sudden statement stole a small chuckle from the younger pureblood’s lips, her head shaking softly as if in denial as he gave her a small, warm-hearted smile, the kind of smile that was always able to take her breath away somehow. “You should tell that to Aidou-senpai, when we get back home.” The brunette replied with a funny wink, coming to the conclusion that she really needed to empty her bag one of these days… and possibly throw away at least the 90% of what was currently in it. “I’m sure he’ll have fun listing all the one hundred and one reasons why ‘I’m still nothing more than a child and certainly not suitable to be a Queen!’” She stated in a very pompous tone, obviously trying to impersonate the blond-haired vampire that was also her tutor. “Oh! But don’t tell Kaname-sama that I said that!” She added with the same pompous voice, trying to hold back a giggle. Maybe his lessons weren’t exactly all that interesting, but one thing Yuuki had to admit was that at least the noble was funny to watch. She really doubted that she would have willingly attended her lessons if her teacher had happened to be someone other than him. Well… besides Kaname, of course.

image

A small, delicate smile lightened up her features as his gaze moved from her to the searing sky, watching curiously as the bright, red colour of his irises blended so perfectly with the one of the clouds up in the sky. It was only when darkness fell upon them once more, making it suddenly difficult for her to admire his serene expression, that the little pureblood finally realised she had just spent the last few minutes staring intently at him, forgetting what exactly she was supposed to do.

Completely embarrassed, and with a face that could have easily resembled a big, fat strawberry right now, the pureblood princess quickly dropped her eyes to her purse, trying to hide her flustered countenance from his sight with the help of her long hair as her small hands kept rummaging nervously through her bag, feeling incredibly stupid all of a sudden. Why did she always had to embarrass herself when he was around? It was like everything around her would suddenly disappear the moment her eyes fell on him, on his gentle smile and his delicate features, and those beautiful crimson coloured eyes that even now seemed to hide so much pain in their depths.

image

Yuuki could have spent hours watching his every expression; every little twist and twitch of his lips, every emotion passing through his eyes, and the love she would always see whenever he looked at her. Sometimes she would force herself to stay awake until he would come to bed just to can admire his peaceful expression as he slowly drifted to sleep in her arms. It was the only moment when she could finally see him at peace, with no dark thoughts looming at the back of his mind. Oh, how she would have loved to can see him like that every single day. With no worries or problems to trouble him, just simply enjoying his life, as he should. He deserved it. After all he had went through, she couldn’t allow him to suffer again. She had sworn she would have been the one to protect him this time, to make him happy. But then… why did she felt so weak all of sudden? So helpless? As if she still hadn’t done anything to repay him for all he had done for her?

image

In all honesty, Yuuki wasn’t exactly sure why her thoughts had somehow drifted in that direction right at the moment. Wasn’t her biggest concern the one to find the camera, just a few seconds earlier? One thing she knew though, was that as soon as the gentle sound of his voice filled the air once more, she felt the overpowering need to embrace him, and so she did. With her small fingers tightly clasped around the pink camera that she had just found, she quickly threw her arms around him, burying her face into his chest with a nervous giggle, her head shaking ever so softly. “That’s right, you don’t have any excuses this time around.” The girl warned him with a rather shaky voice, suffocating a small sigh against the soft silk of his shirt before raising her head up a little until their eyes met, her own strangely large and glossy at the moment. “So be sure to give me one of those big, wide, beautiful smiles of yours, understood? One of those you know I love so much.” She told him with a soft, gentle smile, poking lightly his waist with her finger before suddenly standing up on her toes and stealing a small kiss from him, her face turning red the moment her feet touched the ground again.

It was like the air had gotten suddenly colder when she finally moved away from him, her gaze focused on the old, bright-coloured camera in her hands. Or maybe it was just her face that was way too warm right now. Before he could even realise what had just happened, or better, what she just did since it wasn’t certainly something that happened everyday, she was already at a few feet away from him, fiddling silently with the object in her hands just like a child who had just received a toy that didn’t know how to use. Ignoring his piercing stare turned out to be quite a surprisingly difficult task to accomplish, and his playful response to her nervous explanation only served to make her face turn even more red, if that was even possible at this point. “D-Don’t be mean, okay? I was just a little girl when I had this.” She murmured, pouting, frowning as the sudden noise of footsteps broke the silence around them.

image

She only realised what was going the happen the moment he suddenly appeared in front of her, his usually stoic expression now replaced by a purely amused one. Her eyes went wide as he silently snatched away the camera from her hands with a quick movement of his wrist, leaving her to stare at the ground with a very flustered face for a couple of seconds. “N-No, wait! P-Please don’t-…” Before she could even finish her sentence, he had already fixed the camera for her and was now gently handing it back to her, her lips still slightly parted for have being caught by surprise.

“T-Thank you…” The brunette muttered uncertain, staring at the camera in her hands for a few seconds more before finally raising her eyes up again after so long, examining carefully her surroundings. “W-Well… How about that little bridge over there?” She finally replied after a couple of minutes, pointing with her finger towards the small, wooden bridge that crossed the pond, her eyes almost sparkling at that sight. “There are lanterns and fairy lights all over the place, so we shouldn’t have any problems with the lightning, and other than that… I think it’s cute! You like the idea?” She asked with a sweet smile, her little head tilting slightly to the side as she spoke. “I believe the only question left at this point is… how exactly do we take the picture?”

image

He felt his breath catch in his throat. Accepting his newly found warmth, Kaname melted into her warm embrace. It was one that could melt away freshly fallen snow, leaving in its wake a harvest of spring flowers. Remains of tension retreated from his body at the sight of her petite frame pressed into his chest. It left the pureblood in a sense of awe and peace that made any anxiety evaporate like mountain mist on a summer morning. The effect she had on him, or even the ability to put him at ease had perplexed him. The thought of it all pulled a tender smile at the edges of his lips. It caused a flood of warmth to surge through his chest.

Despite what some assumed, Yuuki’s happiness was of utmost importance to him. From the early age of a young boy, he had promised to make her happy and protect her with his life. Perhaps it was his own selfish assumption, but Kaname had always believed that she was born to be protected under his watchful eye. The countless of promises made between them was a silent promise no other knew. It was their own secret – much like their conflicting emotions that driven them over turbulent tides for many years. Passion. Love. Desire. The all shared the same meaning, which each faced and were tormented by.

He looked to her raised face. As of now, all about her seemed silence. Only but her eyes reflected the vermillion red glow of the rising sun in the horizon, her hair, dark and shining, spilling over her shoulder like a midnight shroud. Kaname resisted the urge to lift his hand and feel the delicate warmth of her jaw. Instead he closed his eyes for a long moment, revelling in the feel of the sun’s faint warm kisses against his face, as though he was touching the heat of her pale skin against his hand.

The pureblood’s eyes opened once more to instantly fall into a deep bliss when her lips claimed his. Brief and short, he leaned back, his eyes lightening with wonder. Kaname could not decipher the message within her eyes; it was an encrypted letter that held the mysteries of the world. It was at times like this where he felt he was distanced as well as equally close to her.

A few moments passed, as the two looked around them. Soon enough, their search for a suitable location had come to an end. Following the direction of her gaze, crimson irises pinpointed on a koi pond that glittered in the pre-morning day sunlight, sending fractured pools of light to dance over the rocks that edged it, as well as the underside of the small arching bridge that crossed it. The soft rustles of wind in flora preceded the melodic tinkle of wind chimes as it tugged playfully at them, the plants in the garden rustling softly. It was peaceful, it was tranquil, it was…

There was a certain weight to the quiet that had settled over the garden, an odd weight of expectancy as though the quiet expected to be broke, shattered really, within moments. It was a quality that hadn’t existed in this particular place for a long time.

“It will do.” Kaname murmured gently, dripping his eyes closed in acceptance. “If you wish to take a picture then I suggest using a timer.” He replied, leaning over to draw her attention to the small dial beside its lens.
