Disclaimer: I do not own vampire knights...unfortunately
I regret many things in my life…
I regret hurting her
I regret letting her go
But what I regret the most was…
Allowing myself to believe in a love that was never meant to be
I had to do it now. I would never get this kind of opportunity again but I could not will myself to pull the trigger to end her life. You must know who I am now. My name is Zero Kiryuu, renowned vampire hunter extraordinaire.
I stood frozen, Bloody Rose held stiffly in my hand, no longer having the will to kill as I gaze lovingly into her mahogany orbs. I've been waiting for this day all my life and dreading it just the same. The day when I will finally be able to see her again and the day I was supposed to take her life.
She hasn't changed since that day on the moon dorm's balcony except for her long chocolate locks that pooled around her waist. Her face as beautiful as ever and brown eyes still sparkling with the childlike innocence that I love. She was still the same Yuuki. My Yuuki.
"Hello Zero" she greeted with a heartwarming smile, despite of her knowledge about my plans to murder her. Her voice still sounded like the chimes above a lake. I didn't speak, afraid that if I spoke this wonderful dream might shatter, my heart along with it. Instead, I made my way towards her, taking my steps one at a time.
I stood before her and pulled her roughly into a tight embrace. I burrowed my face into her neck. Even as a vampire she still smells the same, like apples and chocolate.
"Yuuki" I whispered hoarsely, my voice strained with emotion.
She returned the embrace whole heartily.
"I missed you too, Zero" she said happily, tightening her embrace around my broad shoulders.
I didn't reply, knowing if I did a thousand more questions will follow. Why did you leave me? I thought you loved me. How are you now? Is he treating you right? Are you eating okay? Do you still love me?
I kept my mouth shut. I don't think I can bear the pain I will see in her eyes once I started asking those difficult, life-changing questions. Instead, I contented myself to ask a simpler one, which unfortunately, still brought sadness in her eyes.
"Why?" I asked quietly, still latched on to her as if she might disappear any moment.
I sensed her posture slacken, her smile fade to be replaced with a rueful one. She let me go, placing her arms calmly at her side. I stood up but my hand travelled to grip hers tightly, in
assurance that she won't go away. To my surprise, she didn't pull her hand back.
"Because Zero" she began " I love you. I've always loved you even after all these years"
" Then why didn't you choose me?" I asked, confused. I didn't want to hurt her but I want to know why.
" Because I couldn't just leave him" she replied, looking away from me now and into the sunset. Her eyes disconnected. " After all the pain I put him through, all the things he's done for me."
All the pain he suffered! What about me?! What about all the pain I suffered? The loneliness I felt? I wanted to shout all these things at her but I couldn't. I loved her too much to let her experience pain because of my selfishness. I just stood there, looking at here blankly, though I was sure that my cold, uncaring mask had broken and was now showing the tortured face of a man.
I raised the bloody rose and pointed it at her forehead, sure of a dead aim. She smiled softly and her eyes looked at me lovingly.
That was my final image of Yuuki Cross. After that the gun went of with a loud banng
I regretted loving her....
But I didn't regret killing her....
Because 'till regret do us part...
and death do we come together
a/n: what do you think? I worked really hard on it.
