Chapter 1- Three Years
Author's Note: Thanks to everyone's past reviews, I finished typing this chapter super quickly! XD ENJOY! Note: If I did own D.Gray-Man, then Allen and Lenalee would be together, and all of those stupid yaoi and other Lenalee pairings would be burned ALIVE! XD -evil laughter- Oh, and Ketsueki No Bara Ano means The Rose of Blood.
Pairings: AllenxLenalee, LavixMilly, OCxOC -there's a lot of them-, and KomuixCoffee.
The night sky was blood red as the ground below it was equal in color as blood spattered along the houses of the village.
"N-No! Please spare me!"
"Why should I do that?" A chilling voice asked, and the man trembled before he was ripped apart savagely.
The person licked the blood off of his fingers as he stared down at the blood, and he started to laugh at the sky.
The Black Order was quiet as the Science Department was hard at work, and everyone was just lethargic.
"Another mass murdering in Western Europe." Johnny stated to Reever as they all just kept their heads on the table.
"Italy is finally rebuilt after Tyrir destroyed it…" 65 stated calmly as he was working diligently.
"It's been three years since then though. At least they've gotten faster at rebuilding…" Reever muttered as he rubbed his chin while staring at some papers.
It was true. It has been three years since Gin's appearance and disappearance as well as Allen's.
Komui had made some new rules that banned anyone from saying Allen's name inside the tower, and everyone slowly found a way to mention him without saying his name.
They just called him 'you-know-who'.
Komui calmly walked into the department as he carried his usual cup of coffee, and Reever looked over bored.
"How is she, Chief?"
"The same…" Komui muttered sadly as he dumped his coffee down the drain, and he made a disgusted face at it.
"It's been three years though! Why doesn't she ever leave that room!?" Johnny asked in shock, and Komui sighed sadly.
"She still is waiting for you-know-who to come back…" Komui muttered as he poured some more coffee into his cup, but spat it out as it was revolting.
"At least she's eating, right?" Johnny asked, and they all nodded in agreement.
"She doesn't want to die, so of course she'd eat!" Reever stated with a huff, and Johnny nodded nervously.
"Yeah, you're right. I still feel sorry for her. Poor Lenalee…"
"She's never left you-know-who's room ever since that day also." 65 added, and Komui stared at the bottom of his cup silently.
"She has Timcanpy though." Komui stated as he put his cup down, and he calmly walked back to his office.
"I heard Timcanpy is as big as a volleyball now." Russell muttered, and Reever and Johnny stared at him in shock.
"Yeah! I peeked in one day, and I saw Timcanpy bringing the food to Lenalee before cutting her hair!"
"No way! Tim is a barber!?"
"The strange thing is that Lenalee looks exactly like she did three years ago, so Tim is amazing! Lenalee also never leaves that window except to sleep and take a shower." Russell stated, and the science department stared in amazement as they imagined a volleyball-sized Timcanpy.
Tyrir grumbled angrily as he rested his feet up on the table as he leaned back in his chair.
He glared at anyone unfortunate enough to look his way while they sat in the dining hall.
"Damn people had me work on rebuilding their country…" He muttered bitterly as he stared at the cup in his hand.
"You did ask for it, you know." Cedric stated as he drank his usual alcohol, and Tyrir shot him a hot glare.
"I was TOLD to do it!" Tyrir snapped, and he shot a quick glare at some females who were looking over at him, and they quickly looked away.
Cedric noticed it, and he chuckled. "You sure are a chick magnet."
"Shut the hell up!"
"Can I have some of that luck?"
"I said SHUT THE HELL UP!" Tyrir snapped angrily, and he took his feet off of the table, and slammed his cup down on the table as he glared at Cedric lividly.
"Calm down, we don't want you going Noah Form on us." Cedric said nervously, and Tyrir scowled angrily as he slowly calmed down.
"You're still lucky to be an idol by the girls…"
"I'm liked by them, Kiki is their idol." Tyrir stated, and Cedric nodded before gulping down another drink. "Same thing…"
A soft humming sound wafted down the hallway, and the finders and scientists moved out of the way as Kiki happily skipped down the hallway.
"Morning!" She said as she passed them, and as they stared back at her, she started to hum again.
"She's so hot…"
"Get back to work before she hears you!"
The finders and scientists all quickly looked back to see that Kiki had stopped, and she happily looked back at them while a tick mark twitched on her forehead.
"What was that?"
"Sorry, ma'am!" They all shouted before quickly walking away, and Kiki shrugged before going back to skipping down the hallway.
"Call on me when you are sad. Don't cry before I come. I will cry for you to come. Sing with me in the rain." Kiki sang as she stopped at the dining hall, and went to get some food.
Rôade smiled happily as she faced Johnny at the chessboard. "Check."
"Ah!" Johnny quickly moved a piece, but froze as Rôade giggled.
"Checkmate. What's that? 47 wins?" She asked, and Johnny nodded slowly in defeat.
Rôade cheered before setting the board back up again, and they played again while Keria watched while politely eating.
"Miss Rôade, haven't you played enough? You're food is getting cold." Keria stated, and Rôade gasped cutely before rushing for her food.
She quickly brought it to the board, and they went back to playing while Rôade ate as well.
"Lavi!" Milly called out as she walked around outside of the tower, and she pouted when she saw Lavi sleeping against a tree.
"LAVI!" She shouted before kicking him in the head while her arms held a tray of food tightly.
Lavi hit the ground hard, and he slowly woke up before freezing at Milly's glare.
"Honestly! You said you'd just be working out, so I go to cook something for you, and you're taking a nap!?" Milly snapped, and Lavi smiled nervously before standing up.
He slowly took the tray of food from Milly, and he smiled slightly. "Thanks, Milly." He said while Milly pouted, and she stopped as she stared at him.
"No problem." She said with a smile, and she turned away before walking back to the kitchen in high spirits.
Lavi watched her for a moment, and then put the tray of food down
"STRIKE!" He shouted when he knew Milly was out of earshot, and he then quickly grabbed the food and went to enough it where nobody would interrupt him.
Kanda held Mugen in front of him as he had the blindfold over his eyes, and he stayed still as leaves fell around.
Suddenly, Kanda slashed all of the leaves in half, and he pushed the blindfold off of his eyes to see the slashed leaves fall to the ground.
"Che…" He muttered, and then put the blindfold down before doing it again.
Reever sighed in pain as he stared at the mountain of work in front of him, and he glanced around while Johnny ran into the room.
"Sorry I'm late! I was playing chess with Rôade, and she's good." Johnny stated as he sat down to his work, and he froze before putting his head on the table.
"My happiness was just sucked out of me…" He muttered, and Russell and Reever nodded while 65 calmly continued to work non-stop.
Reever reached up for his next paper, and he perked up as he noticed a blue-bound book on the shelf.
"Do we have any blue books?"
"Of course not."
Reever narrowed his eyes as he stood up, and they all watched him as he pulled the book off of the shelf.
"Then what's this?" He asked as he held the book up, and 65 shrugged in confusion.
"I don't know…"
"Hey! There's a bookmark!" Johnny said in surprise, and Reever looked at the violet bookmark sticking out of the book.
He opened to the bookmark, and his eyes widened suddenly. "W-What is this…!?" He asked loudly, and all of the scientists perked up as Reever started to read.
To anyone who is smart enough to know that there are no blue books in the Black Order, well done.
It's time you know who you are dealing with in the third year of my departure, and my last year in semi-hiding.
Name: Rose of Blood
Innocence Number: 110th
The Rose of Blood is a myth of an Innocence.
It does not exist although there have been many sightings of it.
The Rose of Blood is a unique Innocence that can be used by anything.
Akuma, Exorcist, Noah, and Human can all use this Innocence.
When it is activated, the Rose of Blood chooses thirteen humans to be the bearer of its abnormal abilities.
These people are called Noah of the Noah Clan.
The Rose of Blood is also the realm of death where the souls of the dead go to when they die.
This makes the Rose of Blood the perfect thing to use to level up and create Akuma.
However, this is all a myth and not to be taken seriously.
Reever closed the book as everyone sat in silence.
"It creates Noah!?" Johnny asked in shock, and Reever nodded slowly.
"It's only a myth though!" Russell said, and some scientists nodded while others shrugged.
"If it was a myth, then why would they know so much?" Reever asked, and everyone went silent as it was a good point.
"So, what are we going to do about it?" Russell asked Reever, but Reever could only shrug as he tapped the book's spine against his shoulder. "I guess I should tell the Chief."
Timcanpy flew onto the windowsill of Allen's room as it stared at the sun calmly.
"I don't see him…" A voice from behind Timcanpy muttered, and the golem quickly flew backwards so it could rest on the person's lap to comfort her.
Lenalee put her hand on Timcanpy with a small smile before looking back out the window.
Before she knew it, she was laying down on Allen's old bed while Timcanpy lay next to her.
However, Lenalee wasn't able to sleep calmly…
The blood red water churned at her feet as Lenalee stared down into its dark depths.
Lenalee's eyes wavered as she could make out shapes in the water, but when she saw what they were, she screamed.
"No… Why… Why are they all dead!?"Lenalee screamed as Lavi, Krory, Bookman, Komui, Kanda, and everyone else floated in the water.
"You killed them." A different voice suddenly said, and Lenalee's hands fell to her side as two arms wrapped around her neck, and someone put their mouth to her ear.
"No…" Lenalee muttered as she stared at the blood red water, but the person behind her merely chuckled as they put their arms around Lenalee's waist so they could put their mouth to her neck.
"You did. You killed them all." The person whispered, and Lenalee turned around to see nobody there.
The person had disappeared while the water seemed to laugh at her.
Lenalee's heart quickened as she looked around frantically, and she slowly stopped as she saw nobody but the bodies in the water.
"I couldn't have killed them… I would never hurt my friends…" She whispered barely while she put her hands on her face.
"Fear not, child."
Lenalee's eyes widened as her hands slowly lowered themselves, and she saw a raven staring back at her.
"Come to me, child. I will show you what you did."
The raven motioned for Lenalee to come closer, and Lenalee slowly took a step forward.
"That's it, child. Come to me…" The raven said while Lenalee slowly walked toward it.
The raven's beak opened slightly, and a feral tongue came out and licked the raven's beak.
"Don't be afraid, child. I'm here to help…" The raven cooed, and Lenalee slowly reached toward the raven.
"Yes, child. There we go. Come."
Lenalee hand was almost to the raven's beak, and the raven's eyes gleamed feral red as it licked its beak again.
Lenalee jerked her hand back as the raven suddenly grew, and it held Lenalee down with its talons.
Lenalee couldn't find her voice as she stared up at the raven's eyes that seemed to seer into her mind.
The raven's tongue slowly licked its beak again, and Lenalee felt a cold sweat run along her face until she found her voice to say one thing.
Lenalee clamped her eyes shut as the raven lunged down at her, but Lenalee suddenly felt something warm hold onto her.
She slowly opened her eyes to see a white hand holding the raven's beak away, and she was being held by a large white ghost-like figure.
"Allen…?" Lenalee whispered, but the figure's mask just looked over at her.
"I made it on time, I guess. Having a good day I hope, Lenalee." A voice said next to Lenalee's ear, and she glanced over before all went white.
Lenalee swiftly sat up in her bed, and Timcanpy quickly jumped back in surprise as Lenalee panted heavily.
"What… was that!?" She muttered as she wiped any sweat off of her forehead, and she slowly turned so her feet touched the floor.
Timcanpy stared at her from behind as it looked almost concerned at her. "I'm okay…" Lenalee said when she saw Timcanpy staring at her, and the golem still stared at her.
Lenalee managed a small smile to the golem, and she then placed her hand on it again. "I'm Okay, Timca-"
Komui looked at the book Reever had shown him, and he scratched at his head in curiosity.
"You could be right, but we have nothing to worry about. The Earl is gone, and we have no more Akuma problems. Any new Innocences have no need of our attention." Komui stated as he handed the book back to Reever.
Reever took the book with a frown, and he watched Komui take a sip of his new coffee before spitting it back out.
"I just thought that-"
Komui and Reever froze as the scream filled the entire tower, and Komui's eyes widened before he bolted it out of his office with Reever close behind.
"That was Lenalee!" Komui shouted to the other scientists, and they quickly ran after him, but lost him as Komui gained speed.
Komui stopped outside of Allen's room to see Lavi, Milly, and Kanda already there.
Komui quickly kicked the door open, and the four saw Lenalee on her knees on the floor as she clutched at her head in pain.
"Lenalee!" Komui shouted as he ran over, but when he touched his sister's shoulder, she screamed again in pain.
The other three quickly ran in along with Reever who caught up.
When Lenalee stopped screaming, she suddenly fell to the side and landed in Komui's arms.
"Lenalee!?" He said in shock, and they all froze as Lenalee's hair fell to the side as well.
"Chief… I think our "myth" is reality." Reever muttered as a row of crosses gleamed on Lenalee's forehead.
Outside of the tower, unseen by all, a figure stood in mid-air as he stared down at where Allen's room was.
"Like I said three years ago; such a cursed girl to be one of the new thirteen. The Rose of Blood has activated once again, and its time for me to step in again… Man, I hate work…"
The figure muttered before disappearing into the air, and the sun turned a blood red before it sank into the dark horizon.
