Kaname attempted to skim a hand along her side, searching for the source of blood that coursed through her veins, serenading him. Currently, his fingers were far too occupied being tangled in her hair, smoothing each strand until she stilled her nervous ministrations and made her eyes meet him. Despite his current tired state, he wished longed to sooth her with his mouth and tuck her small form to his side, making her feel safe and protected.

Absentmindedly, he ran his fingers through her tresses once more. The pureblood held her close, his strong, muscled arms wrapping around her waist to keep her in place. He leaned forward and pressed his noise into her dark brown hair, inhaling her sweet scent. Kaname sighed, relishing the scent of her skin and hair, just like lavender and honey suckle.

By now, the pureblood could feel the weight of her body press down on him; her arms wrapped tightly around his neck, feeling the warmth of her embrace comfort him.  It flared, like Titan torches flinging flakes of flame and embers, springing from the dale. He stared at her, unearthed by the small ivory doll that was kissed and blessed by the beautiful candlelight. Her slender and creamy body shimmered faintly, a glow akin to a saint to holy crown, so soft that it reminded him of the petals of white roses, yearned to be bruised and kissed with other darker hues.

 Kaname could sense his lips tilt gently, his dark eyes glimmering blissfully at the image before him. He looked warmly at her, admiring the way her innate prettiness had become more pronounced. At times it bemused him how her exquisite allure had still remained untouched, for she did not understand the power she held with her superficial charms. Her large melancholy eyes laced with long lashes, momentarily hid away behind her bangs, were adorned with a pure, sultry redness that attached its curse to anyone. Fortunately, Kaname had been bound by such a curse from the very beginning.

He whispered to her, his tone warm and soft like a feather’s touch, as he buried his face deeper into her fragrant hair. “I look forward to it.” Kaname mouthed into her ear, his lengthy black locks overshadowing his eyes. With one last gesture, he pulled away his fingers from her silken, damp hair. Allowing her to find a comfortable position on his chest, he couldn’t help but acknowledge the way she always crawled onto his chest to nap as a child. Perhaps it was the warmth of his chest, or the sense of protection his presence provided that helped her sleep when she was troubled. Whatever the reasoning was behind her actions, Kaname would in no way object.

With the distance between them gradually closing, he watched her eyes glaze over his neck, her irises blooming into a familiar seductive red glow. Kaname felt his breath hitch, finding himself in a short trance, unable to move or speak. He felt the adrenaline starting to settle in his stomach, nauseating him, and making all of the fatigue and soreness in his muscles apparent. To what seemed like a sweet mirage, the faint glow had dimmed, returning to their natural maroon shade.

Now comfortably positioned, Kaname smiled gently making the untoward girl blush at such blatant display of veneer splendour. It was to be expected. Taking hold of her fingers softly, letting an element of yearning into his voice. He could taste the luxurious flower scent she rinsed her silken locks with. Kaname took in a long breath, allowing the sweet and sultriness of her exotic fragrance to cloud his mind for a moment.

“…It’s alright. To have Yuuki beside me is enough.” Kaname observed her with a tender glint in his eyes. 

There was something so sweet, so comforting about his delicate touch, something that Yuuki had never really been able to explain to herself, no matter how hard she had tried throughout the years. The way his hands would tangle in between her brunette locks, and how his long fingers would skim through her hair, so kindly and yet so strongly at the same time, as if to make sure she was still there with him, that she didn’t left the moment he had raised his hand. It was such a simple gesture, nothing more than a little habit he had since they were kids, but for her… that simple gesture meant the world to her. There was absolutely nothing that Yuuki loved more than to be held in his arms, spoiled and cherished by the man only she had the luck to can call ‘hers’. She would have gave anything for even a small, simple second with him where the world around them didn’t mattered and it was just him and her for once, with not a single care in the world.

A part of her longed for a normal life; to wake up and be greeted by his smile everyday instead of a cold, empty spot on the bed, to start the day with him, go shopping while he was at work and then go back at home to cook dinner for when he would finally be home again. To be able to go out freely on her own anytime she wanted, and to fall asleep without having to fear that one day she might open her eyes and find out that he was no longer with her. She wished they could be just like any other couple out there, not different, not special, just… them. Ironic, considering that during the ten years she lived as a human, she would have done anything to escape from that life and be a part of his, instead. But if so, then… what was that she really wanted?

image

She had once been told that as a pureblood, time was the only thing she would have always had, the one thing she would have soon been afraid of. But as she looked up into his eyes now, the soft, reddish colour of his irises darkening slightly as his arms slipped around her waist, pulling her closer to his frame, the only thing Yuuki was really afraid of was time not being enough to see those eyes once more. And the only thing more scary than living forever and having to watch all your loved ones die one after another, was having to bear with all of that alone.

A soft sigh escaped from her little mouth as the older pureblood buried his face in between her brown, luscious locks, erasing for a moment all of her troubles and fears. Her small fingers closed around the soft fabric of his shirt, the tip of her nose touching delicately his ear. “You like?” She questioned slightly embarrassed with a faint blush on her cheeks as he silently inhaled her scent once more, trying to ignore the voice at the back of her head that kept telling her it was a stupid thing to say. “I used your favourite body wash, or… what I believe it’s your favourite one. I mean, I’m not sure, I just remembered you saying that I smelt good once after I used it, and so I thought… well, yes… that.” Okay, little note to self: whenever that annoying voice tells you to shut up, maybe you should listen to it. And thank you very much.

Yuuki had to admit that it had all sounded a lot better in her head than what it actually came out in the end. Biting softly her bottom lip, the girl quickly lowered her gaze back to the ground, trying to ignore those eyes that she was sure were staring amusingly at her, wondering what would be the next thing that would slip past her little mouth. Her face was now of the same colour of the flames that flickered lazily in the fireplace, and the warmth of his body and the way his arms were so tightly wrapped around her figure weren’t certainly helping her to cool down. To be honest, they were making the whole process even more difficult. Not that Yuuki had any intention to complain, though.

Despite the rising temperature and the fact that her face was now more or less of the same colour of a giant tomato, the young princess still managed to wrap her trembling arms around him and snuggle closer to his being as he once more buried his face in between her brunette hair, apparently entranced by their scent. She trembled slightly at the sound of his whisper so close to her ear, feeling lost for a second as his warm breath washed over her skin, leaving her completely helpless in his arms. “Me too.” She finally replied after a few seconds with a heartfelt giggle, letting out a soft groan of disappointment when he suddenly pulled his hand away from her hair, her small head tilting upwards to look at him, a cute pout on her lips.

Without saying anything, the girl pushed herself up into a sitting position, a hand on his chest to balance herself, and before he could question her, she quickly took hold of his hand and brought it up to the band that was keeping her hair tied into that tight bun, forcing him to close his fingers around it and gently tug the band out of her hair, a devious smile on her lips. A cascade of long, brunette curls fell immediately upon her creamy shoulders, wild and untamed, caressing delicately her pale, porcelain skin and shielding her back from sight. “Better now, right?” With a swift move she snatched the colourful band from his hand, giving it a quick look before throwing it carelessly behind her back, finally leaning back down on his chest with a soft sigh, keeping his hand buried in between her brunette locks. “Don’t stop please. I like it.” She muttered bashfully, moving his hair away from his eyes with a little smile.

There was something incredibly nostalgic about being in this position with Kaname. So many years had passed since she used to crawl on top of him while he was peacefully lying down on a couch, or even his bed, in search of the warmth of his chest. She was so small back then, so little. Kaname would usually spend most of the day outside, playing and having fun with his friend, as Juuri would always say to her, and although Yuuki was way too young to understand what jealousy was at that moment of time, thinking about it now suddenly made her realise that she was no different from a jealous wife questioning her husband who had just come back home from a night out with his friends. She would often pin him down on the couch, with a pout on her lips and her arms crossed over her chest, demanding to know where he had been and what he had done, and if perhaps he had found a girl he liked more than her while he was out.

The memory made her chuckle softly, her head shaking lightly in amusement as he smiled down at her, eyes brimming with warmth. “Being like this with you brings back so many memories…” The girl confessed with a little smile, propping herself up a bit to adjust the collar of his shirt, their lips almost touching as she moved forward a bit, leaning down to hide her face against the side of his neck. “Remember that time I got angry because Okaa-sama told me you went out to play with Ruka-san?” She asked in between a giggle as the memory of that day suddenly crossed her mind, pulling back a little to look at him. “I was so scared you didn’t wanted me anymore that I ended up locking you into a room with me and hide the key, telling you that you had to marry me first if you wanted to get out. God, I was such a little brat.” The little pureblood commented with a bashful laughter, her bright red cheeks glowing softly under the candlelight.

image

Her glossy, scarlet eyes closed for a small moment as he suddenly took hold of her hand, her small fingers slipping almost instinctively in between his own. “I’ll stay beside you, then.” Yuuki murmured softly in response to his tender words, a sweet smile grazing her tender features. “For as long as Kaname wants me to.” She added with a small nod, brushing the tip of her little nose along his neck with a sigh, her thumb drawing small circles at the back of his hand. Pulling back, the brunette smiled softly at him, enchanted by the tender glint in his eyes, and slowly dropped her head down to where his heart beat steadily against his chest, pressing a small kiss onto the soft fabric of his clothes, her delicate whisper echoing loud and strong in the silence of the room. “Mine.” Her lips moved upwards, trailing small kisses across the soft expanse of his neck up to his ear, and then down again along his jaw, each single kiss followed by the same word, over and over again, as if she wanted to make sure he was really there, and that he was really ‘hers’.

She left the last kiss right before reaching his lips, her face slightly flushed and her small hand stroking lightly his cheek. “I love you…” She whispered at just a few inches away from his lips, moving her forehead to brush against his own. “I love you so much, Kaname.” She repeated just as quietly, words spilling out of her mouth as if she simply had no control over them. Not anymore anyway. “Just as you are mine, I am yours… Forever.”

A familiar scent greeted him, grabbing and twisting its vine around him, pulling him toward them as if they were saying they missed him greatly. He heaved a deep sigh, and soon enough a heavy drowsiness crept over his limbs, little by little, swallowing his fingers first then spread throughout the body like an undesirable, flesh eating virus. The pureblood’s vision blurred, drinking the delightful aroma that hung in the air hungrily. Kaname stared into the darkness gathered overhead for a moment, permitting his thoughts to settle, allowing his mind to organise the events around him clearly.

Feeling the ends of her hair tickle his face, Kaname reached for a dangling strand in front of his face. “Is that so…” Kaname began, bemused by the light dust of pink across her cheeks. “Your efforts were not in vain.” His eyes gleamed in the orange firelight, the red shadows that twisted and hissed like a provoked snake dancing in his crimson, blood-like pupils.

Undeniably, he could feel Yuuki’s light breathing above him, a source of caring warmth. As her fingers slipped between his, he held onto her hand carefully, as if she were a dainty little blossom with the gentlest expression. From that moment, he remembered that she possessed deep crimson eyes that twinkled like the most loving star in the cosmos, and a tender smile on her lips. Curving a hand around her small head, her silken locks slipped down her shoulders as she looked down upon him.

Feeling the weight of her body shift into a sitting position, the pureblood cast a quizzical look. She laughed like tinkling silver bells among willows and wind at his words, her pale pink lips loosening lightly. Cupping his hands in hers, he obediently followed the guidance of her hands to feel the softness of her hair. His fingers travelled up her spine to eventually play with the band around her bun. As his hands worked slowly through her hair, the tight bun came undone letting her hair down. Kaname’s eyes lowered, focusing on taking care of her beautiful hair that he loved so much, always burying his face amongst the scented threads when they simply embraced one another, enjoying each other’s warmth- a habit he had adopted ever since they were young, and could barely pronounce simply words. His eyes softened at those delightful memories.

As she stroked his tangled mane absentmindedly with her fingers, the pureblood relished the sweet sighs and mewls that pushed past her lips, fully aware of her discontented groan the moment he chose to pull away. It was at times like this that Kaname couldn’t help but tease her every so often. Like any other normal couple, it was only right after all.

With his heavy arm circling her waist possessively, and his warm, soft breathing blowing in a rhythmic, calming pattern against the bare sensitive skin where her neck and shoulder connected, Kaname’s eyelids flickered steadily. Yuuki’s similar vampiric flesh glowed softly under the candlelight, inviting carnal monsters to induce in its aroma. Bathed in its faded saintly light, it highlighted the warm brown of her dark locks, curling into strong, elegant ringlets. Kaname merely sat there quietly in the darkness, continuing his encouraged ministrations, combing the girl’s dark hair with his fingers distractedly.

Soon enough, her warm palm traced down from his collar bone, along the lines of his chest, rubbing against it slow and leisurely; her mouth so near to brush against his. Her warm breath hissed against his lips, reminding him of the early sweetness he had managed to taste a short while ago. As of now, he could feel the brush of her warm breath against his mouth, observing the way her vermillion lips glistened in a way that invited one to taste its bitter ripe fruits, as the apple curved its fingers to Eve. She was too close for comfort. So close, that he could count the number of lashes that adored her lids, the flawlessness of her alabaster skin, the darkness of her soft locks and the wisps that framed her visage.

His sweet Yuuki…She was born with the sweet song of nightingales sealed in her golden throat. Upon each time she spoke his name as they embraced, it was as though she was chanting a blessing under her winded breath. Her touches were as gentle and light as a butterfly’s kisses, as her slender fingers trailed the flawlessness of his face. Like the delectable sweets that she loved, to Kaname, she was as sweet and comforting. Her wavy curls were unlike those of the women in his family of neither the loose, watery ones of Juuri. Instead, they were thick, full and glossy, and when he took a handful, they would overflow his palm, dripping down in his warm, mahogany ringlets.

Kaname rested in her embrace, dipped in her exotic scent that fumed his mind with absolute delights. Kaname opened his eyes and met her warm ones. He adored how he could never detect any source of tainted thoughts in her clear as water pupils.

A dry chuckle escaped the pureblood’s lips as he amusingly recalled the memory. In all truth, it seemed the pair of them had already shared their moments of jealousy. Whether it was in the company of another, or merely some other reason, the distinct green shade of jealousy had always remained tightly tucked away at the back of their mind. For a child at a young age, Kaname had observed Yuuki’s early development in interrogation. From being locked in a room to being unable to stand up with her stubbornness to remain on his lap, Yuuki was most certainly the determined of children. Yet when it came down to the proposal of marriage, Kaname’s tolerance had melted instantly. In return, his answer to such a question had been more than expected…

He allowed her to touch his face freely as he closed his eyes, drowning in her gentleness. “I will never tire of you.” Kaname murmured softly to her. There was so much love and gentleness that he almost reached for it when she stopped for a simple moment, longing for something he never received in others but only her. Always her.

Welcomingly, her lips peppered kisses along his jawline. They were soft and warm, leaving him unable to withdraw a soft groan when her mouth slanted over the corner of his lips. Intoxicated within their tranquil tenderness, his deep, seductive maroon irises tried to focus on her visage, its dark, crimson pools reflecting her wistful smile. His dark, silky lockets were now in a tangled mess, drooping gently on the depression where he had slept.

‘Mine’ – the precious words echoed in his mind.

Kaname opened his eyes with a vague sense that something in the room’s atmosphere had shifted. It took a while for his eyes to focus on the figure beside him, as the dim lit candles on the window behind him made it harder to recognise detail. Yet unmistakably, the pureblood could detect a hint of vanilla. It was a clean, sweet, wholesome fragrance.

Lifting his heavy lids, he watched the familiar figure there. A pleasant sigh escaped his lips as he felt her cool, delicate hand press against his cheek. During that moment, he took his time to appreciate the way her dark lashes fanned out against her creamy skin and those delicious red lips part slightly, her glossy, dusky curls tumbling over her shoulders. She looked as fresh as a daisy, and completely untouchable, all that was best and pure, with her legs tucked demurely to the side. She was such an elegant little creature.

image

As of now, he hadn’t been prepared for the vision she presented when clothed as a woman, with her feminine curves, moulded and revealed so enticingly. The deep, shining fabric of her night gown made her eyes appear like pools of gleaming chocolate in the pale cream of her face. All of the gems in the world were no more lustrous than her skin, which seemed so fine as to be translucent, a dramatic contrast to her dark night down and rosy lips. The candlelight warmed her features, burnishing her eyes to gold. It made her irises look cracked, fractured. The brightness begging to burst forth.

The pureblood bent his head to touch her forehead. Her breath, warm and soft flowed against his parted lips. Kaname watched her steadily, the smallest tic at the side of his mouth showing the pureblood’s appreciation of her gesture. His face was in the shadows, its harsh angles limned by candlelight. He looked even more enigmatic than usual, if possible.

“What a pity…” he said softly, his voice still thick with fatigue, his gaze travelling slowly over her, as if mapping unknown changes that had been made to her appearance, renewing his memories of her. “…And here I had the hope of brushing your wet hair, as I did many times before as a child.” Slowly, he touched a strand of hair that had escaped from her tight bun. Rubbing the ends of her strand, Kaname felt the dampness of her hair. It was so supple, like spun silk; he gingerly twisted a few strands between his fingers, at last fully opening his eyes to watch the firelight play off it.

It was painfully hard to focus. Between the wine, her heavenly scent, and her tender touch, he found himself relaxing all the more. The breath he was holding slowly escaped as his mind and body surrounded.

image

Despite she sincerely wished he could stay in the peaceful realm of his dreams, sheltered from the cruelty of the reality in which they were forced to live, it would have been a lie to say that she didn’t felt at least a little bit happy to see his eyes slowly slid open, his crimson jewels shining brightly under the soft candle light. A small, delicate smile immediately lighten up her features, followed by the melodic sound of a giggle as he slowly tried to focus his confused crimson gaze on her, obviously still drowsy from his little nap.

“Good morning, sleepyhead.” The little brunette teased him with a cute grin, running affectionately her hand in between his tousled locks. “I’m sorry I woke you up, you looked so peaceful there. I honestly feel a little guilty now.” She confessed with a bashful chuckle, shaking softly her head as a small sigh escaped from his slightly parted lips. To tell the truth, he still looked quite peaceful and definitely not displeased by the whole situation, so maybe there was no need for her to feel so guilty for waking him up after all. Just maybe though.

image

Her large, shining orbs scanned silently his sleepy figure for a while, taking in even the smallest of details; from the way his chest would slowly rise and fall, steady and constant, to the way his soft lips would part every time he let out a warm breath, raising goosebumps upon her skin. He was what she could only describe as ‘perfection’. He was sprawled on that couch, his hair messy and his eyes heavy with sleep. His usually perfectly tidy clothes were now all creased and crumpled, and for once he did not look like the unreachable, almighty king of their race but simply himself, the fragile, broken man that he was behind his mask.

Yet, despite all of this, he had never looked more perfect than he did now at her own eyes. For once, she did not feel as if she was on a different level from him, unworthy of even stand by his side. It was like all the walls between them had suddenly crumbled to the ground the moment he had allowed her to see him in such a vulnerable state. And after everything they had been through, it was certainly funny to think it had took her such a long time to finally realise that all along, the only thing that has always been between them was her.

The bright, pink flush on her cheeks darkened slightly as he suddenly bent his head towards her, touching gently her forehead. She could feel his breath upon her skin, and his eyes piercing right through her soul, as if he could read her like an open book. All of a sudden, the little pureblood felt weak and extremely vulnerable under his gaze. Closing her eyes, the girl buried her face against his chest, breathing him in, her cheeks burning as if on fire by now. She wondered if one day, all of these affectionate gestures would have become natural to her. She really hoped so.

image

Her head shook softly, and a small, amused giggle left her mouth as the sound of his tired voice filled the stillness of the room, his words filling her heart with joy. “My bad!” She apologized bashfully, shrugging delicately her shoulders as he took a small strand of her hair that had escaped from her bun in between his fingers, twisting it and turning it around for a few seconds. “But just because my hair isn’t wet it doesn’t mean that you can’t still brush it, you know?” The girl pointed out with a little smile, throwing her arms around him and nuzzling her face in the crook of his neck with a cute sound. “It’s not like I would mind. I’ve always loved when you brushed my hair as a child, and I still do. And trust me, my hair will definitely need to be brushed once I’ll pull them out of this bun!” She murmured lightly, suffocating a small laughter against the soft silk of his shirt. “So don’t worry, I will certainly lend you my brush for a while later.” The brunette reassured him with a playful wink, her smile softening as she realised he was having more troubles than expected in keeping his eyes open. Her heart started to pound faster at that sight.

Trying to be as quiet as possible, she slowly rose to her feet and gently straddled his lap, resting her head against his chest with a small sigh, her hand right over his heart. It was so hard to resist the temptation to sink her long, ivory fangs into the soft, pale skin of his neck now that they were so close. She surely must have been a masochist to torture herself in that way, there was no doubt about that. “You can sleep a little bit more if you want…” The girl told him softly, brushing her cheek against the soft fabric of his clothing in an affectionate gesture, watching the flames slowly die down. “I won’t leave this time, I promise.”

Kaname attempted to skim a hand along her side, searching for the source of blood that coursed through her veins, serenading him. Currently, his fingers were far too occupied being tangled in her hair, smoothing each strand until she stilled her nervous ministrations and made her eyes meet him.

Allowing her to find a comfortable position on his chest, he couldn’t help but acknowledge the way she always crawled onto his chest to nap as a child.

“…It’s alright. To have Yuuki beside me is enough.” Kaname observed her with a tender glint in his eyes.

Her simple gentle gesture undid him.

Kaname stroked a finger along his upper lip, considering the fleeting images in his mind intently. A swell of heat swept up his throat, leaving behind an uncomfortable burning sensation. Expertly cushioned in his right hand, Kaname lowered his wine glass to the small rosewood table at his side. Absently his fingers bent inward, curving to stroke the lavished silver carvings on its smooth surface.

image

Gracefully, the pureblood lay sprawled across a sturdy leather chaise, his long legs slightly parted. Shiny, chocolate-brown tousled locks dripped over his eyes. His eyelashes were like dark half-moons on his cheeks, which retained their pristine white glow despite the temperature of the room. The warmth of the soft leather welcomingly kissed his skin through his silk shirt, as he adjusted his body into a comfortable position. With lips slightly parted, his chest moved gently up and down with each breath he took.

To keep himself awake, he cast his eyes around the room, idly contemplating its contents; the soft lush fawn carpet with its border of rich red roses, and green and golden leaves. The scent of beeswax polish wafting its soft honey scent surrounded him.

Unmistakably, the scent of cinnamon pervaded the room. The comforting warmth of the fireplace ignited life back into his numbed limbs almost instantly, flurries of bright orange and yellow flames casting long shadows across the panelled floors. Two and fro, the elegant bends and twirls of the flames soothed the pureblood immensely, quietening his mind, causing his shoulders to droop; a relaxing cadence that lulled his mind to sleep, and calm the stutters of his heart.

image

Releasing a low sigh, Kaname let his arm drop away, highlighting the inward of curve of his chest, the slackness of his hands as they danged at his sides, the subtle concavity of his spine. As of now, he felt his body being encased within a hot cocoon, shielding his body from the lingering bitter morning cold that seeped from underneath the doors. Undoubtedly, Kaname could not find a reason to protest against his current situation. For the time being, his newly found warmth and darkness cradled him in its arms.

Kaname’s eyelids drooped heavily, already beginning to escape deep into his mind in a way he hadn’t done in years. Soon enough, with a heady groan, his rosewood irises closed for the briefest of moments, hiding them behind the warm palms of his hands.

image

If the clock wasn’t right there in front of her eyes, Yuuki would have probably thought she was seeing things at this point. And a small part of her wished that could be true, because it simply wasn’t possible that she had already spent more than hour inside that bath-tub. Where did the time go?

The little Kuran princess closed her eyes and leaned back with a soft sigh, shivering lightly as her bare back touched the cool marble of the tub, eyes gazing blankly at the wall. And to think that it was supposed to be just a quick, refreshing bath. She wondered if he had followed her advice and was getting some rest now, or if perhaps he had grown tired of waiting for her and left. No, Kaname would never do that, he would always wait for her. He would always, always be there for her, no matter what. Wasn’t that right…? The memory of what he had told her just a few hours earlier suddenly crossed her mind, making her feel incredibly anxious all of a sudden, and even a little angry somehow. Why did he had to be so stubborn? Was it really so difficult to understand that the only thing she wanted was to be with him? Why couldn’t he allow himself to be happy for once, just for a little while? It was all she was asking for, just a tiny, little moment of happiness with him.

image

Shaking softly her head, the pureblood sunk deeply into the now cold water, watching as the colourful bubbles on the surface slowly popped one by one with her every movement, her long, brunette hair neatly fixed into a bun at the top of her head. How long has it been since the last time she had been able to enjoy some time with him without being afraid that he would suddenly disappear? All those nights spent awake to admire his beautiful face as he slept soundly beside her, only reassured by the tight grip of his arms around her, and the gentle sound of his breathing against her skin. If it was her choice, she would have took him far, far away from there, where no one knew who they were, where they could spent night and day together, without worries and fears to trouble their minds. A place where they could finally start living. Humming softly to herself, the girl pressed delicately her cheek against the edge of the tub, giving one last look at the clock with a small sigh. One hour and a half. If he was still waiting for her, maybe it was best not to make him wait any longer.

A small hand came up to clean the large mirror above the sink, a pair of large crimson orbs staring at their own reflection as if that was the first time they saw it. The girl absently adjusted the white towel wrapped around her figure, watching curiously as some small droplets of water began to slowly slid down the cloudy mirror, making it difficult to see. With one last look at the young woman with large, sad eyes that she could see in the mirror, the little pureblood left the bathroom and ventured into the master bedroom in search of some clothes, the sound of her damp feet against the wooden plank floor making her giggle softly. It was a good thing that Kaname wasn’t there to see her at the moment. For some strange reason, she was completely sure he would have not appreciated that. Not at all.

After a few more minutes of struggle to find something suitable to wear, the wet towel was placed inside the hamper along with her dirty clothes, and a now fully dressed Yuuki stared once again at her reflection at the large mirror, feeling a little bit less tense than when she had first stepped inside that room. Perhaps it wasn’t so bad that she had took her time with that bath instead of doing everything so quickly, after all. She only hoped he would have still been asleep once she would have made her way downstairs to join him as promised. She didn’t liked the idea of him waiting for her all alone for such a long time, especially since she had promised him it would have been a quick thing.

The girl spun on her heels a few times, wondering why she had never wore that particular nightgown before. It was a present she had received from Yori for her birthday, or so Aidou had said when he brought the package home with him from the Academy. She hadn’t found any messages in the box, and she had never really been able to properly thank her friend as it was only recently that she had been allowed to communicate with the outside world again. The black, satin gown fell graciously just above her knee, hugging her figure almost like a second skin. The dark colour made a delicious contrast with her pale skin, making it almost glow under the soft candle-light. Yori surely knew what suited her best, there was not doubt about that. A little smile curled the pureblood’s lips as she looked at her reflection one last time before finally leaving the room to make her way downstairs. She definitely had to think of a way to thank her properly for her thoughtful gift. But surely that could wait for a few more hours, right?

When she finally walked into the parlour again after two long hours, she wasn’t surprised to find him sprawled over the chaise longue, his eyes still tightly closed. The young princess moved closer, careful not to make any sound, and sat elegantly on the floor, right beside him, admiring his serene expression with an heartfelt smile. He looked so peaceful right now, so harmless and… free. Free from his duties and his worries, free from his fears. Wake him up seemed like such a horrible thing to do. Before she could even realise it her hand had already moved of its own accord and was now delicately stroking his cheek, her eyes closed as she slowly leaned her forehead against his, a soft sigh pushing past her lips. “Oh, how I love you, Kaname. You have no idea just how much I love you.” The little princess whispered softly with a bashful smile, brushing tenderly her nose against his own. “If only every day could be like this…”

Kaname opened his eyes with a vague sense that something in the room’s atmosphere had shifted. It took a while for his eyes to focus on the figure beside him, as the dim lit candles on the window behind him made it harder to recognise detail. Yet unmistakably, the pureblood could detect a hint of vanilla. It was a clean, sweet, wholesome fragrance.

Lifting his heavy lids, he watched the familiar figure there. A pleasant sigh escaped his lips as he felt her cool, delicate hand press against his cheek. During that moment, he took his time to appreciate the way her dark lashes fanned out against her creamy skin and those delicious red lips part slightly, her glossy, dusky curls tumbling over her shoulders. She looked as fresh as a daisy, and completely untouchable, all that was best and pure, with her legs tucked demurely to the side. She was such an elegant little creature.

As of now, he hadn’t been prepared for the vision she presented when clothed as a woman, with her feminine curves, moulded and revealed so enticingly. The deep, shining fabric of her night gown made her eyes appear like pools of gleaming chocolate in the pale cream of her face. All of the gems in the world were no more lustrous than her skin, which seemed so fine as to be translucent, a dramatic contrast to her dark night down and rosy lips. The candlelight warmed her features, burnishing her eyes to gold. It made her irises look cracked, fractured. The brightness begging to burst forth.

The pureblood bent his head to touch her forehead. Her breath, warm and soft flowed against his parted lips. Kaname watched her steadily, the smallest tic at the side of his mouth showing the pureblood’s appreciation of her gesture. His face was in the shadows, its harsh angles limned by candlelight. He looked even more enigmatic than usual, if possible.

“What a pity…” he said softly, his voice still thick with fatigue, his gaze travelling slowly over her, as if mapping unknown changes that had been made to her appearance, renewing his memories of her. “…And here I had the hope of brushing your wet hair, as I did many times before as a child.” Slowly, he touched a strand of hair that had escaped from her tight bun. Rubbing the ends of her strand, Kaname felt the dampness of her hair. It was so supple, like spun silk; he gingerly twisted a few strands between his fingers, at last fully opening his eyes to watch the firelight play off it.

It was painfully hard to focus. Between the wine, her heavenly scent, and her tender touch, he found himself relaxing all the more. The breath he was holding slowly escaped as his mind and body surrounded.

thepurebloodancestor:

The sun’s early morning light kissed the night and finger painted it in hues of deep purples and blues. The delicate pastels of dawn were painting themselves.  Light yellow and pink hues were beginning to emerge from the deep purple and black of the midnight blue night time. From a fair distance away, one could see the sun beginning to peek out from beneath the distant horizon, a deep and glowing ember steadily emerging in the distance.

image

A pair of silhouettes meandered within the shrinking shadows, at last approaching the manor’s grounds. The low creaking sound of the front doors opening was followed by the short taps of shoes as the pair entered the manor. The noise made between them soon disappeared into the cool air, allowing the grounds to resume their peaceful silence.

The entrance hall and corridors were well lit with lights from glass chandeliers and carved antique candle holders. The fireplace in the parlour travelled throughout the manor, welcoming its rooms and guests with a blessed warmth. Considering the amount of time they had spent walking, the unexpected warmth was all the more appreciated. It soothed Kaname’s tired limbs, seducing him into a dreary gaze.

With a deep breath, he lifted his chin high above his collar, and smoothed two hands down his dark trench coat, as if the single motion composed him. He then dragged a hand through the thick fall of his hair. The dark locks fell back in place like a silken curtain, framing the strong planes of his cheeks.

Kaname let an elegant shrug fall from his shoulder, removing himself from his coat. With another quiet sigh, he folded it neatly over his left arm. Steady resolve centred his eyes; warm amber – red in the firelight. The pureblood’s gaze travelled a warm trail over her, studying the brown depths of her eyes, truly seeing them now in the light. The identical amber hue glowed with heartfelt warmth, as she unfastened her coat.

image

The pureblood raised his hand from his side and took hold of her slim wrist. He stepped close enough to murmur in her ear.

“You must be tired.” His skin burned where he held her, his thumb lightly circling over her pulse. “Refresh yourself and get some rest. If you’d like, you can join me later in the parlour.”

Having said that, Kaname straightened to his full height squaring his shoulders; a slow smile curved his mouth.

For some unknown reason, the journey back home seemed a lot more faster than it did the first time. Maybe it was simply because she wasn’t incredibly hungry this time around, or perhaps they had just took a shortcut without her noticing, which wasn’t exactly so impossible since Yuuki had no idea of which way they had took a few hours earlier to go into town. She had just followed Kaname without really paying too much attention to her surroundings, and considering that the house where they were currently staying was basically lost in the middle of the woods, even if she did pay attention she really doubted she would have been able to find it if she accidentally got lost, and for that she was really glad that she didn’t.

Chocolate brown eyes closed for a small moment as the first, gentle sun rays caressed lightly her porcelain face, making it look almost golden for a split second. Raising gently her arm, she quickly shielded her delicate eyes from the sunlight, her lips curling into a small pout as the sun slowly started to appear in the distance, the once black sky now tinted with an orange glow. It was almost unbelievable to think that they had been out for so long that day. It seemed like only a minute was passed since she had proposed to go out for dinner instead of spending the night at home as they usually did.

image

The girl murmured something below her breath as the front doors of the old manor opened in front of her with a disturbing, creaking sound, making it impossible to understand the words that had just slipped past her lips. As the large, wooden doors closed behind her, however, blocking the already strong light coming from the outside and leaving the room with only the soft light coming from the chandeliers to illuminate the dark hallways, the soft sigh that came form her little mouth echoed loud and clear in the silence of the room, filling the air for a few seconds. Maybe it was wrong to say, or even to think about it for that matter, but as far as she was concerned, Yuuki felt more at home in that house than she ever did in their own mansion. And for someone who had spent an entire year without leaving that house, that certainly meant quite a lot.

The little pureblood cast a quick glance in his direction as he elegantly straightened his clothes, watching with a small smile as his already tired expression became always more evident by the second. Shaking softly her head, the young Kuran princess quickly unbuttoned her coat and snatched away his own from his hands, hanging them both of the hall stand near the entrance with an elegant movement. Perhaps it had all been way too much for one day, after all. For the both of them.

image

Before she could say or do anything else, his long, gentle fingers wrapped delicately around her wrist, making her heart race as though she had just ran a mile. His warm breath tickled softly her ear, erasing every single coherent thought from her head in less than a second, leaving her completely speechless for a long, everlasting moment. And although none of his words were too difficult or too elaborated to comprehend, it took her at least a couple of minutes before being able to reply to him properly… without sounding incredibly stupid, that was.

“I’m not tired.” The pureblood finally murmured in response, shaking lightly her head with a little smile. “It’s been a long day, but I’m fine, really.” She reassured him with a nod, playing nervously with a long strand of her chocolate coloured hair that framed her porcelain face. “Either way, the idea of a hot, steamy bath sounds incredibly nice right about now, so I think I will excuse myself for at least a couple of minutes if that is okay with you.” The brunette said softly, raising her hand to caress delicately his cheek. “You, on the other hand, look particularly tired.” She murmured a little concerned, stroking lightly his cheek with her thumb. “I think you’re the one who should get some rest, Kaname. Why don’t you sleep a little in the meantime, hm? I’ll wake you up when I’m done.” She told him softly, pecking lightly his lips with a small giggle. “It’ll be quick, I promise. You won’t even notice that I’m gone.”

image

And with that promise and one last, tender smile, the princess quickly made her way upstairs towards the room they shared and the large en-suite bathroom that lay behind the mahogany doors. Although it was true that she was still pretty energized despite the long walk, she really needed a moment to herself right now, to think. And what better way to do that if not inside a large hot-tub filled with hot water and colourful bubbles? She had promised him it would have been a quick bath, that she would have joined him soon. But as she gazed at the empty tub and the large collection of body lotions that she possessed, Yuuki had to admit that she wasn’t so sure about that anymore. No, definitely not.

Her simple gentle gesture undid him.

Kaname stroked a finger along his upper lip, considering the fleeting images in his mind intently. A swell of heat swept up his throat, leaving behind an uncomfortable burning sensation. Expertly cushioned in his right hand, Kaname lowered his wine glass to the small rosewood table at his side. Absently his fingers bent inward, curving to stroke the lavished silver carvings on its smooth surface.

Gracefully, the pureblood lay sprawled across a sturdy leather chaise, his long legs slightly parted. Shiny, chocolate-brown tousled locks dripped over his eyes. His eyelashes were like dark half-moons on his cheeks, which retained their pristine white glow despite the temperature of the room. The warmth of the soft leather welcomingly kissed his skin through his silk shirt, as he adjusted his body into a comfortable position. With lips slightly parted, his chest moved gently up and down with each breath he took.

To keep himself awake, he cast his eyes around the room, idly contemplating its contents; the soft lush fawn carpet with its border of rich red roses, and green and golden leaves. The scent of beeswax polish wafting its soft honey scent surrounded him.

Unmistakably, the scent of cinnamon pervaded the room. The comforting warmth of the fireplace ignited life back into his numbed limbs almost instantly, flurries of bright orange and yellow flames casting long shadows across the panelled floors. Two and fro, the elegant bends and twirls of the flames soothed the pureblood immensely, quietening his mind, causing his shoulders to droop; a relaxing cadence that lulled his mind to sleep, and calm the stutters of his heart.

Releasing a low sigh, Kaname let his arm drop away, highlighting the inward of curve of his chest, the slackness of his hands as they danged at his sides, the subtle concavity of his spine. As of now, he felt his body being encased within a hot cocoon, shielding his body from the lingering bitter morning cold that seeped from underneath the doors. Undoubtedly, Kaname could not find a reason to protest against his current situation. For the time being, his newly found warmth and darkness cradled him in its arms.

Kaname’s eyelids drooped heavily, already beginning to escape deep into his mind in a way he hadn’t done in years. Soon enough, with a heady groan, his rosewood irises closed for the briefest of moments, hiding them behind the warm palms of his hands.

thepurebloodancestor:

Her soft lips caressed his mouth like a newly-awakened flame, warming his cold ones like a steel blade tipped with fire. The newly found warmth from her hot lips flared, like Titan torches flinging flakes of flame and embers in the passionate air. It folded him in a sheet of molten gold, firmly fitting him in place, as a marble stone accurately hewn and polished. Her kiss conveyed her frustration, her conflictions and troubles. Within that kiss, it was her sole attempt to heal his thoughts with the tender touch of her lips. Kaname’s heart filled as cloud with fire.

She released a small, muffled moan into his mouth, enticing a groan to escape from his yearning mouth. Before long, her face pressed closely into his chest, heaving a heavy sigh in response. Kaname could feel the warmth of her breath seep through his clothing, kindling a trail of goose bumps down his arm. Her nimble fingers played and lightly tugged against his hair, massaging the back of his neck in soothing, circular motions. She did not wish to look at him, not even make the slightest eye contact.

image

“Yuuki,” Kaname softly called to her, tightening his hold around her figure that bended like an elegant willow bough, “to put the blame on yourself and not share the responsibility with me…How selfless of you. Whether you choose to look and accept the present as it is now or later is not important. The fact that you choose to continue moving forward is of great meaning; do not place the burden of simply making me happy in the way of that objective. It’s alright, Yuuki.”

Yuuki, do not shoulder the blame by yourself. To be alone can only lead to pain and further suffering.

 Kaname sensed her lean into him and bury her face into the crook of his neck. She inhaled his scent, clenching onto the thickness of his coat. Her small arms shyly pressed his chest against hers, getting her close enough to bend his head forward to kiss his cheek, feeling his arm move with her breathing in unison. The pureblood could feel her heartbeat against his chest, allowing their silent harmonies to join with the other in a harmonious duet. They remained the way they were for countless minutes, enjoying the feel of the other and their cherished time. Although they had often been in the company of the other for past week, it never seemed to be enough for either of them, as before long, the pair would be separated by their inescapable duties. And while their tender moments seemed numerous, to both of them it seemed fleeting and hardly ever that they could embrace in such a way.

image

Wrapping his fingers around her frail hand, Kaname caught her wrist effortlessly, stooping to place a gentle kiss on the inside of her palm. “Do not discredit your efforts so frivolously. If you should be in danger, I will protect you. If you should be troubled, I will be there to comfort you. I can only ask that you will allow me to pry into your thoughts a little more, in order to understand how I can be of help to you. Yuuki, allow me to force these little whims on you.” Kaname’s hand moved to cup her cheek, allowing his thumb to stroke her gently. “But above all, I will be your sanctuary.”

Hearing her words, Kaname took his time to examine her. She was beautiful was always, but lately, even with her natural beauty, she seemed to glow almost. The corner of his mouth lifted in a faint smile upon hearing her confession. His love and devotion for her festered in his heart like buried thorns in the flesh. There were no bounds to his devotion to her, nor question as to the extent he would go to. Her safety within the world stood as the greatest purpose behind his existence. If the life he had promised to protect vanished, the need to go on living would also die along with it.

There was no instinct like that of the heart.

The wall of his reserve crumbled at this sign of her tenderness. His eyes widened for a fraction of a second, before they softened, trailing his gaze to the side. At times he feared that Yuuki knew him too well to the point of where his darkest secrets were fully exposed to the light.

image

His tone softened as his eyes found hers. “Very well then.”

Not approval or passive action, but the skimming of the water’s surface of a bat’s wing became the lingering evidence of their presence within the silent garden. The sun climbed lazily into the waiting embrace of the morning sky …

Although brief and short, that simple touch of her warm lips against his cold ones awoke something inside her, a feeling so deep and strong to make her heart flutter, and her body tremble in the safety of his embrace. If it was her own choice, she would have never let him go, for he was her sun and her moon, and everything in her world. Her hold around his neck tightened slightly as the gentle sound of his muffled groan echoed softly in the air, filling her heart with a warmth she had never thought she would be able to feel before.

image

“Responsibility?” She echoed with a little smile, shaking softly her head. “And why would I even want to share it with you? You did nothing wrong Kaname, nothing. It is all on me here, I’m the one who’s making such a big fuss for a small, simple thing. I do not wish to see your shoulders carry the blame for me, please… Allow me to take the blame for my own actions, that’s all I ask.” The pureblood muttered quietly, biting ever so delicately her bottom lip, her ivory fangs glistening under the first, weak rays of the morning sun. “Making you happy is not a burden for me Kaname, it is my wish.” She corrected him with a little pinch on his arm, a cute pout on her lips. “Do not think that the only reason why I wish to do that is for the sake of your happiness. I’m not that selfless, and unfortunately not even that good of a liar to try to make you believe that.” The girl explained with a faint chuckle, clearing her throat once to push back those traitorous tears that threatened to escape from her already glossy eyes.

Right in that instant, every single thought in her mind, every concern, every fear, all the sorrow she had been carrying in her heart since the moment she had realised all she had put him through became secondary as his hold around her fragile frame tightened to the point of becoming almost painful. Any other would have felt almost trapped in that embrace, for her though, it was worth more than a thousand words. “The truth is that… I love to see you happy, it makes me happy too. To see a smile on your lips and a peaceful expression on your face… I want that, I want it all, the entire package. There is not a single day when I don’t wake up wishing to can see your smiling face as the very first thing in the morning, and while for you this may sound like a burden, for me it is nothing but a beautiful dream, probably the most beautiful of them all.” Yuuki whispered softly, her small head moving into a gentle nod as her nails dug themselves into the soft fabric of his dark coat, her porcelain face deeply buried into the crook of his neck.

They remained like that for what it felt like hours to her, it was really hard to believe it was just a few minutes. Regardless of the countless of embraces they had shared, and all the times they had already found themselves in the same position before, as the sound of his heartbeat echoed faintly at her ears, overwhelming the roaring sound of the water beneath their feet, Yuuki felt as if that was actually the first time she was truly able to feel him, to hold him for real this time around. Despite being constantly around each other, it was only during this kind of occasion that they could really enjoy their time together, without sudden interruptions. Since she had moved to the Kuran Mansion with him, Yuuki could not recall a single moment in which she had been able to feel as close to him as she was feeling right now. It was like the wall between them had just crumbled, leaving no more barriers to separate them from each other.

image

Her breath caught in her throat as his long fingers closed around her delicate wrist, a soft sigh escaping from her plump, rosy lips as he brought her hand up to place a gentle kiss upon her palm, making her smile softly against his neck. “Always the hero Kaname, right?” She commented with a little chuckle, shaking lightly her head. “When will you finally realise that I don’t need one anymore?” The princess told him simply, raising up her head a little as his thumb delicately stroked her cheek.

“I appreciate that you wish to do all these things for me, but… I don’t need a hero anymore. I don’t need to be protected every single second, I don’t need to be watched over everywhere I go, and I don’t need to be justified whenever I do something wrong.” She explained slightly exasperated, placing her hand upon his to keep it in contact with her cool skin. “Do not fret because of these kind of things, trust me a little bit more, mh?” The little pureblood asked with a small smile, trying to reassure him that she only meant well with her words, just like he did. “If your wish is to pry a little bit more into my thoughts than I will gladly allow you to do that, but please… don’t let my thoughts cause discomfort to you. It is not what I want, I do not wish to see you sad because of me.” She spoke tenderly, sealing her words with a small peck on his lips.

image

When their eyes met again so suddenly that night, Yuuki thought for a second that the time had just stopped around her, her heart beating so fast that it was almost impossible to mask its sound. She was only able to murmur a feeble 'thank you' as a response before the silence fell between them once again, leaving her unable to say or do anything for a couple of minutes. His eyes were so pretty… When exactly did she fell in love with his eyes? Yuuki honestly couldn’t remember. And why was she even thinking about that right now? Was it for the way he was looking at her perhaps? For the things he had just said?

Before she could even realise it, her face was once again buried against his chest, yet this time her small hands were clenching the front of his dark coat, as if trying to encourage him to move. Why was her throat so dry all of a sudden? “This-… This way then.” She stuttered nervously as her small hand travelled downwards in search of his, aimlessly leading the way over the small bridge to the other side of the pond, not exactly all that interested anymore in accomplishing those tasks that had brought them so far away from home in the first place. All she cared about right now was finding the quickest way that would have led them back home, away from the prying eyes of the other people. She needed some quiet, and possibly even a hot, scorching bath. Well… perhaps even two, after all.

The sun’s early morning light kissed the night and finger painted it in hues of deep purples and blues. The delicate pastels of dawn were painting themselves.  Light yellow and pink hues were beginning to emerge from the deep purple and black of the midnight blue night time. From a fair distance away, one could see the sun beginning to peek out from beneath the distant horizon, a deep and glowing ember steadily emerging in the distance.

Having said that, Kaname straightened to his full height squaring his shoulders; a slow smile curved his mouth.
