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?”

It was certainly strange how only a second ago she had been dying to let those words slip past her mouth, to make him aware of her thoughts, yes even the most embarrassing ones, and yet she was now slowly starting to regret each single thing she had just said to him, especially that part about always having him in her mind. If what she had said before had made her sound as if her mind was always running wild, well… this surely had just made her sound like a creep, and to be fully honest, the little Kuran princess was having quite a hard time deciding which one of the two was the worst.

image

She shuddered a little at the sound of his heart skipping a beat, unwillingly focused onto the alluring sound of his blood, coursing through his veins. Her body didn’t react at all, standing completely still in the safety of his embrace, but when his forehead bumped gently against hers, any attempt she had made to hide her obvious lust for his blood flew immediately out of the window, her big eyes glowing softly of a bright red colour. When they had left the Kuran estate earlier that morning for the peaceful and quiet atmosphere of that mansion lost in the middle of the woods, she didn’t really had the time to timidly ask him if she could feed from him as she usually did in those kind of situations.

They had left in a hurry because of her being late as usual, and although Yuuki had initially thought she could have easily settled that problem during the journey, when they eventually managed to jump into the car with all their luggage, the sight of the driver in the front seat and especially a lack of window that separated them from him made her realise that she would have never been able to do something so… ‘intimate’ in front of another person. She might have never been able to understand the real importance of it when she was a human, but those times were long gone by now; she was no longer a clueless little girl. So she had avoided the argument completely, swallowing a few blood tablets when he wasn’t watching in attempt to quench her thirst, at least a little bit. She should have imagined that the peace wouldn’t have lasted for long, though. Those things might have even be efficient for the other vampires, but they weren’t exactly all that great for her. In truth, she simply despised their taste. It was nothing like real blood, especially not ‘his’ blood, and regardless of how horrible that was to say, it wasn’t even as remotely satisfying as drinking right from the source.

She had tried to get used to them in past, hating the idea of bringing him pain because of her own selfish desires, but despite her good intentions, she had never been able to fully accomplish that. Of course they served their purpose well when he was away from home and her blood lust would arise, but the moment he would come back home and her eyes would settle once more onto the inviting supple skin of his neck, she simply couldn’t deny that wild, natural instinct to sink her fangs into his oh so easily breakable skin and eagerly take all he had to offer, his memories and thoughts along with it. And if a part of her truly hated the selfish desire she had, the other one would always welcome it with open arms, just like he did. He could never deny anything to her, no matter how painful it was going to be for him in the end. If one day her desire would have been to drain him, the little princess knew deep in her heart, that he would have probably let her do that. And among everything else, the thought of losing him was definitely the one thing who scared her the most about it all. She couldn’t lose him, no, not again. She wouldn’t have been able to live without him this time around, she needed him, just like she needed air to breathe.

image

Shaking softly her head, the brunette pulled herself away from her thoughts just in time to catch a small glimpse of his crimson coloured eyes before she quickly averted her gaze away from him, ashamed of the way he was able to make her lose control so easily even when the only thing he was doing was holding her. At that very moment, the younger vampire felt incredibly vulnerable, as if she had just revealed her only weakness to one of her enemies. She wasn’t used to be so open with him about her own thoughts and feelings. After all, she had spent half of her life hiding her feelings for him, it was silly to think that just because they were living together now and their relationship was slowly improving, she would have been able to tell him everything without feeling at least a little embarrassed. Well, maybe more than just a little considering the current shade of her normally milky skin, but still!

If Yuuki hadn’t known him so well by now, she would have almost thought he was doing it on purpose to embarrass her in that way. Well, not that it was all his fault, the young princess had to admit that. Kaname sure had a strong liking for her flustered face, but as of now, she was the one doing pretty much all the work to make it turn that way, even though he was surely helping a great deal with that smouldering gaze of his and his gentle touch. Her grip onto his coat tightened slightly as he suddenly lifted her head up with a single finger, and the little pureblood could have sworn to have just felt her heart stopping for a brief second the moment his lips touched her own, her eyes still wide open in complete shock when just as quickly he pulled away, leaving her breathless for the second time that night.

image

That was not what she was expecting. No, definitely not. She had thought he would have find her childish and stupid maybe, or that he would have felt disturbed by the thought of being constantly in her mind, but she certainly hadn’t been expecting for him to kiss her after all that! Nor to look at her with such a tender smile on his face! Was she dreaming, perhaps? Because if she was, she definitely didn’t wanted the dream to end this time around! Left speechless by his sudden gesture, her small fingers touched briefly her mouth before moving to caress softly his bottom lip, as if searching for a confirmation that the lips she had just felt upon her own were really his, that he had really just kissed her. It only crossed her mind for a second that she probably looked quite pathetic at the moment to react in that way for a simple kiss. After all, it wasn’t certainly the first kiss they shared, and probably not even one of the most memorable ones if she had to think back at all the other blissful moments when she had been so lucky to can feel his lips upon her own for a little while. But at the moment, that simple kiss was worth more than a thousand words. It was all she needed, and yet not even a half of what she truly wanted. In the privacy of their home, she would have not been afraid to ask for more.

image

“I am… just like a child still, am I not? A child in the body of a woman.” She muttered quietly with a small chuckle, her head shaking softly as he gently brushed her hair away from her face, a delicate smile lighting up her features for that caring little habit of his that he had never lost despite the years. “Sometimes, I… I still feel like the little girl who once told you that she loved you and that she wanted to become your wife, one day. She knew the words, yet… she could hardly understand the meaning, and for this, no one ever took her seriously. Oh, how I hated that.” She giggled softly, lowering her gaze to the ground with a bitter smile. “But at least that girl knew what she wanted, you know? Even if it was hard for her to understand, she had all her future clearly pictured inside her head. It used to be so easy back then…” The girl told him with a soft sigh, shaking softly her head at his words.

“Deep inside, I know what I want… what I feel. I know that I love you, Kaname, and I know that I want to spend my life with you, for as long as my heart will continue to beat. But all the rest… it’s all so blurry for me, so confused. I don’t know anything about it yet. I know that I have a thousand lifetimes ahead of me to figure that out, to grow up and… decide what I want, how our future together will be. But at the same time, I…” She paused for a second, biting softly her bottom lip, unsure of how to properly voice her fears. “I can’t shake the feeling that the more I wait… the more I hesitate… I take a step back from you. And I-I’m scared that one day I will open my eyes and I will not find you beside me anymore, and everything will be gone!” She finally admitted out loud, her gaze still focused onto the ground, trying to hide her watery eyes from his sight.

image

“A-And I can’t lose you again, Kaname, I… I really can’t! I-I won’t be able to handle it this time, not anymore. I can’t watch all of my dreams disappear one more time right in front of my eyes because of my hesitation, I don’t want to!” The younger Kuran explained with a shaky voice, covering her face with her hands and taking a deep breath, knowing that if she didn’t try to calm herself down a little bit, what had started like a simple conversation would have turned out to be something that would have ruined the rest of their night together. And she didn’t wanted that. She really didn’t.

“I-I’m sorry, I-… T-This is not the right place for this kind of conversation, let’s just… do what we came here to do now, okay?” The girl told him with a nervous smile, resting her small hands against his chest to nudge him gently against the railing. “Here is perfect, don’t move.” She muttered quietly in response to his question as she absently adjusted her dress and her hair, obviously intentioned to look her best in those pictures, and not like someone who was on the verge of tears just a few minutes earlier. Still a little embarrassed, the brunette glanced up at him once before wrapping her delicate arm around his waist, leaning her head against him with a nervous giggle, all while trying to keep the camera high enough to fit the both of them into the frame.

image

It didn’t took long before she started to sigh in frustration, moving her gaze up to him with a cute, disappointed pout on her lips, obviously annoyed by the fact that she was too short… or maybe that he was too tall. One of the two, really. “Do you mind if I ask you to take this one for me, please?” She asked with a little frown, not bothering explaining to him how to take the picture since he probably knew that better than her at this point. “I would do it, but… I’m afraid I’ll probably end up cutting your head off the picture from this height, and I would really like for us both to appear in it, body and head if it’s possible.” She joked with a soft giggle, lending him the camera with a small smile before leaning back against him once more, pinching lightly his side. “And don’t forget to smile! If you don’t, I will take a bunch of pictures of you while you’re asleep and send a copy of each one to Aidou-senpai as a punishment! And you don’t want me to do that, right?”

His lover. His consort. His descendant. His fiancée. His future wife and mother to their future children.

Yuuki stood for a great deal of many things, each holding an important sentiment. It was impossible to say that her presence within his life was non-existent. At their time at Cross Academy, Kaname could recall the fond memory of watching her from the eerie halls, strolling and skipping along the cobbled paths to drag along a mumbling Kiryuu. Although Kaname could never accept the closeness that had developed between the two guardians, and felt somewhat envious of such a bond, he felt a rush of relief to see her carefree nature. The way she smiled so easily, to the way her dimples shyly showed to emphasise her child like appearance; they were all so precious to him. It had all acted as a constant reassurance for himself, reminding him of everything he had done up until now to achieve his common goals. After all, it was all for her sake, Kaname had already submitted his soul in compensation.

A year ago, when all had been revived and Yuuki’s memories had been awakened, Kaname had regarded her as a child above all things. It had taken a long enduring year, yet Yuuki alone had spent the long, crippling winter months isolated in her room, encasing herself within her ice prison. At times he had found her hunched and curled into the corner of the room to where her wrists bled from the irritation of her nails scratching mercilessly against her skin. Droplets of blood decorated her dress, caking the ripped rims of her dress. After ten years of silencing her hunger, the beast within her had awakened along with her memories, craving for the red nectar that would sate its famished appetite. She was new to it all, and physically and mentally returned to the state of a new-born, that required protection and support.

 “You are no longer a child, Yuuki.” Kaname drank in her form, noticing the way her hips had widened by a few inches and how her cheekbones had become more prominent. “I have already come to accept this, as should you. Your physical appearance is not of a child, but a young woman. The way that you wish to consult others, and make your own independent judgments cannot be mistaken as a child being guided by the supporting arms of their parent. Like any other new-born, you are maturing and continuing to learn from past experience. In playing various roles, I have been so fortunate to witness all of this.” Kaname murmured tenderly into her ear.

‘That is why I will show you all that you wish to know’

The pureblood stroked her burnt umber hair, feeling the softness of her strands under his fingertips. Kaname stared down at her, his facial expression crestfallen. Her answers trembled with emotion, her voice dripping with anxiety and secret fears, like a brittle harp string under strain ready to snap. The fragile vibration of her voice shuddered against the lump of emotions that formed in her throat.  Her salmon pink lips quivered uncontrollably, as she stubbornly kept her gaze trained to the floor in hope to hide her tear glazed eyes. Her eyes…Her bittersweet eyes. As much as he adored her maroon eyes, which remained to provide him with a distinct hope and light, they were equally capable of evoking pain and guilt within him. They resurfaced many too many things of the past.

Her delectable fangs toyed and twisted her lower lip, indenting its rosy flesh. The little act itself was enough to ignite a lonesome flame in Kaname’s eyes, one which was fuelled by lust and desire. How indecent, he thought amusedly to himself. So careless were her actions, and at the same time she was so oblivious to their effect – especially on Kaname.

Kaname blinked slowly, eyes softening. Creeping forward, he leaned over her, sensing her stiffen subconsciously from his presence. Clenching the wrist in his hand, he kissed her hand. The sound of Yuuki’s lyrical blood rushing in her body thrummed like swallows soaring through the early morning skies. Kaname could see the pale veins running up her arm, and he was almost overpowered by the desire to pin her down and drink. It was too overwhelming that he had to consciously steady himself, and withdraw himself back into the confines which he had trained and built mentally. Unconsciously searching for a sense of relief, the sudden metallic taste of his blood entered his mouth.

Yuuki’s voice continued to steeply rise. Her shoulders continued to shake with the growing adrenaline bubbling in her body. She was crumbling away from the months of frustration that had confused her for so long.

“But I am here, Yuuki.” Kaname interjected softly. “I am standing before you.” His free hand touched the side of her face and then once more the silky strands of her hair, memorising its subtle tones that came alive in the sunlight. Then, his eyes narrowed as if pained by the sudden restraint of her voice. Taking hold of both of her wrists, he withdrew her into the captivity of his arms. “One day, even if I should not be by your side, I will continue to protect you. You are far too dear to me, Yuuki, a beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear. Even if you should no longer remember me, know that you are loved and protected by many.”

The realisation of having to continue with their previous task was undertaken the very moment the camera returned to Kaname’s hands. Having already found a suitable location, the pair’s distinct height from one another had made the task all the more difficult. Angling the camera downwards, Kaname aligned its focus steadily. Cautiously feeling the presence of fingers beside his waist, and very well hidden behind his trench coat from the angle of the camera, the pressure to smile without aggravating Yuuki had become of high importance. Heaving a small sigh, the pureblood complied.

The blinding flash of the camera followed.

thepurebloodancestor:

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.

image

“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. 

image

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!

image

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.

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