All right all right you guys win. I haven't posted in forever because I no longer cared and video games are more fun but since you are all so into it still I guess I will continue for now.
Oh and people who notice I have grammar errors no more commenting on them. They will always be there always so no more complaining on it complain on something I can work on. Grammar isn't one of them. As for a Beta I honestly don't want one. I hate relying on someone else when I write it annoys me.
The bottle crashes near him as liquid and glass spread all over the floor "J-Jeremiah? What are you doing here?"
Jeremiah stares at the scene before replying "I hear that his highness was here, being unprotected so I set out to be your bodyguard for the day"
"And caused all hell to break loose" Lelouch just puts on his fake smile "How thoughtful of you but you aren't needed at the moment. I have gone to school here for many years so I am fine alone thank you"
"But your highness"
Lelouch's smiles goes a little crooked "I believe I ordered you to wait outside" Jeremiah quickly moves outside the door standing guard a little scared.
Milly just sighs and looks at everyone "Guess the cats out of the bag"
Shirley quickly turns to Milly "You knew about this?"
Milly laughs a bit "Of course I am the president's daughter"
"Lelouch if you were a prince why didn't you tell anyone?" Rivial asked
Lelouch turned away from Rivial concentrating on something else "Sorry I better go. Nunnally?"
Nunnally smiles to everyone "Thank you for everything you did for me and my big brother, I really hope to meet you all again"
"We hope for that to" Shirley said smiling trying to hold back her tears
"Wait Lelouch I" Kallen begins to speak but stops part way through unsure of what to say to him "How can he be the one on the radio if he is a prince, he would have no reason to help us but then why tell me about Shinjuku. I don't understand"
Lelouch passes a glance toward Kallen before going behind Nunnally and pushing her out the doors of the club house "You scared Nunnally?"
"No I am not, for I will have you big brother" she smiles reaching up holding his hand.
Lelouch walks past Jeremiah "I am guessing you brought a car"
"Of course it is once of Prince Clovis's personal transports" Jeremiah and Lelouch walks over to the car with Nunnally being pushed by Lelouch. They arrive at the car waiting for them outside the school
"Please tell me I we aren't riding in that" Lelouch states cringing at the vehicle
"What's wrong with the vehicle your highness?" Jeremiah asks a little shocked by his words
"Jeremiah quit playing the loyal tool and look at it. It looks like someone took a really old car, painted it white, put a box on it, and puked up magical colors. Then to make it royal added gold lining to it. It is ugly, but that is my half brother, never did like his fashion sense" Lelouch opens the door picking up Nunnally and setting her down on the seat and folds up the wheelchair setting it inside before sitting down beside her. Jeremiah gets in sitting across from them "So where are we headed to first?"
"Prince Clovis said he wanted to give a grand speech to the world about you and Nunnally's safe return" Jeremiah stated
Lelouch sighs leaning against the car door "God damn him. I should have shot him"
"Did you say something your highness?" Jeremiah asks
Lelouch shakes his head looking outside when a disappointed look crosses his face "Every person of nobility that I crushed will no longer feel ashamed for losing, losing to a prince of Britannia will fit perfect with them. Nobles, royalty, and even the civilians enjoy the social structure. As long as you aren't at the bottom your life will be great. That leaves the area colonies, the losers of the war become little more than slaves and end up at the bottom" Lelouch looks over at Nunnally who seems to be clenching her hands nervously "Maybe I should destroy Britannia directly. I have the skills I even had the chance to kill Clovis. No, that would of put me as a hindrance to Nunnally. If I did that, even for her future I would have to leave her in order not to endanger her, Nunnally forgive me"
Lelouch tightened his hands as he stared out the window. Lelouch feels a hand over his as he looks over seeing his sister "Don't worry, as long as I have you I am happy" Nunnally smiles making Lelouch smile back
"Your highnesses, we have arrived at the Government Bureau" Jeremiah states as they pass through all the inspections. When they arrive in front of the building Jeremiah gets out first opening the door for the two siblings and lifts out Nunnally's wheel chair. A group of guards line the red carpet spread from the car to the Bureau. Lelouch picks up Nunnally and sets her into the seat before pushing the chair with Jeremiah at their side. As they pass the guards they salute without hesitation.
Lelouch looks ahead to see Clovis standing in the doorway waiting for them "Lelouch, I am so glad you can make it and Nunnally I am so happy to see you again" he smiles
"not like I had much of a choice but to come after the fiasco Jeremiah created" he muttered as he looked over to his older brother "yea I thought as much" he stated
Nunnally smiled at Clovis "I am glad I could meet you again big brother"
Clovis looks over to Lelouch "Lelouch can I speak to you alone for a second, don't worry about Nunnally I will guarantee her safety and happiness in the meantime"
Lelouch looks over to Nunnally and holds her hand before looking at Clovis sharply unsure of what to do about Nunnally. Nunnally feels her brothers hand grip hers and she smiles "It is ok brother I will be fine"
Jeremiah bows a bit to Lelouch "I will Guarantee her safety, I swear on Lady Marianne's name"
He looks over to Jeremiah then back at his sister. "Alright Jeremiah" he lets go of the wheelchair before following Clovis inside.
Following a bunch of corridors they end up in a big room with closets, art supplies, and a table in the middle of the room "This is my art room where I paint my art and think up my amazing clothes but that is beside the point"
He pulls off a cloth covering a painting "t-this is?" Lelouch stammers
"It is a picture of you and Nunnally, along with Marianne. I painted it from memory, there is something else I want you to see. They walk back out of the room to a elevator nearby taking them to the very top of the government bureau.
Lelouch steps out first looking at the scenery amazed "This is the Aries Villa"
Clovis nods standing beside him "I had this made not long after I became the Viceroy for this area, you may not trust the court or the people for what happened but at least trust the people you made a connection with as a child. Cornelia was the most devastated when your mother passed away and her, Euphemia, Schneizel, as well as myself were all devastated to hear that you and Nunnally had died during the occupation"
"So now that I am alive what will you do with it?" Lelouch asks
Clovis smiles "it is up to you, once we reach the homeland I will be staying there. I only became viceroy in memory of you but since you are alive I will continue my hobbies of painting and tailoring. You will come back as the new viceroy of area 11"
"Don't I have any say in this" Lelouch questioned getting annoyed that he is already at the mercy of royal politics
"It is just a recommendation actually, If you don't then someone else will" Clovis replied avoiding Lelouch's gaze "That was all I wanted to tell you" Lelouch and Clovis head back to the elevator back to his room "Oh the time, it's almost time for the big news, a prince of Britannia is found alive. We need to pick you out an outfit"
"I refuse" Lelouch states flatly "I never liked your taste and I am sure I still won't"
Clovis laughs a bit "I thought you might say that, you haven't changed to much since we last met ten years ago. I had something else prepared for today" As the elevator opens Clovis makes his way to a giant blue walk in closet and pulls out a outfit that looks all too familiar to Lelouch
"Yes it is the same outfit you wore the day you were banished. I had it redesigned, to fit your current size, well approximately. Try it on see if it fits" Clovis said proudly
Lelouch walks into one of Clovis's personal changing rooms putting it on "It's a little big but I guess it will have to do"
"Sorry about that I didn't think you would be so skinny" Clovis joked
"Anyway can we get this over with, I am not looking forward to this" Lelouch sighed as he spoke
Clovis nodded as they went to the main entrance of the government bureau where the camera's were being set up. As they come down the stairs everyone looks and stairs as the people begin muttering and whispering to each other. They continue to walk down the stairs toward them and stand in front of the cameras with Lelouch currently off screen
Diethard Reid was standing there. He was a man of average height with blond hair in a front of back ponytail. The ponytail on the front was a little to his left side. He wore a casual blue semi-suit with a rouge shirt underneath. "Everyone get into position, we start in three, two, one and we are broadcasting"
Clovis stands in front of the camera. "To everyone within the borders of the Holy Britannian Empire I Clovis la Britannia have great news! Someone we all long thought dead has appeared again my brother, a son of Britannia Lelouch Vi Britannia has been found alive!" The camera turns to Lelouch who stands there waving to camera with a half-hearted smile as the camera goes back to Clovis "I know I am not the only person whose heart is overjoyed upon seeing him alive again"
"A question please" one of the reporters asked "Your highness Lelouch Vi Britannia, what of your sister?" The cameras move to Lelouch
"My sister is alive and is fine, but she is not a big fan of publicity so she will not be making an appearance here" Lelouch spoke in a slightly cold manner getting annoyed by this television crew
"Tomorrow morning we will be heading back to the Homeland to meet with his majesty" Clovis stated proudly. After a few more questions the news crew were done can packed up leaving.
"That was a pain" Lelouch announced to Clovis
"Yea, yea. Well it will be a few minutes until the cooks have supper prepared so you can do whatever, though it is recommended you don't leave the building"
Lelouch looks at Clovis and thinks "I saw a white and gold knightmare in Shinjuku where is it at the moment?"
"Probably behind the building, they have their own transport trailer so it usually isn't with the other units, though now that I think of it I don't know the pilot"
Lelouch nods as he leaves heading down a series of elevators and hallways finally discovering the Lancelot "this knightmare, no doubt about it, it's the one"
Lelouch turns around and sees a man in a white lab coat with glasses and slight blue hair standing in front of him looking at him "such a lovely machine don't you agree your highness" he said with a huge grin
"U-umm ya" Lelouch stammered surprised by the person
"Ahh right, my name is Lloyd creator of the Lancelot" Lloyd continues to smile at Lelouch
"Alright Lloyd can you tell me who is the pilot of this machine?" Lelouch asked
"Of course, his name is Suzaku Kururugi. A great deviser I must say" Lloyd exclaimed happily
"Ok I'm done with that simulator" Suzaku called from inside the transport
Lelouch immediately broke out of his thoughts "Suzaku is that you?"
"Lelouch?" a brown-haired boy with green eyes came running out of the trailer "Lelouch it is you, I'm glad you're alive but what are you doing here?
"I could say the same about you, helping someone who looked like they were in trouble got me caught and thrown back into the world of royalty's politics"
Suzaku thought a moment "piloting the Lancelot was the quickest way to end that battle in Shinjuku, that was my thoughts anyway"
"You sure changed" Lelouch spoke
"Lelouch, I believe this to be the correct path, I can change the system from within" Suzaku stated to his friend
"Suzaku I know how you feel but even if you have power you have restrictions, I am now considered royalty again but I can't change anything without losing Nunnally" Lelouch thought to himself "I got to go Suzaku" Lelouch heads back inside the building finding his way to the dining hall where his sister and Clovis await him
"Big brother" Nunnally turns to where Lelouch entered with a happy grin on her face
"Have a good tour?" Clovis asked already seated "Nunnally was telling me all you were going through" Clovis's tears well up "It is such a sad story"
"Clovis your too over emotional, I only did what I had to do and yes Nunnally I met Suzaku." Lelouch said as he sighed. The chefs came bay delivering the food
"Really how is he?" Nunnally asked excitied
"He is doing fine, when we come back from the trip we will see him first thing" Lelouch promised
"Alright, I can't wait to see him again, it has been ages" Nunnally mused
Before they start eating Lelouch looks up noticing Clovis staring at him "Umm why are you staring at me Clovis"
"I am waiting for you to say it" he replied
"Say what?" Lelouch asked curiously
"Oh I dunno" Clovis cleared his throat and tries a Lelouch impersonation "Royalty eats such fine food while others out there starve in poverty it is so unfair"
"Most Britannian's eat quiet good as for elevens unless they are part of the system as honorary Britannian's it can be tough but that has been the structure of Britannia for years, and Clovis you really suck at impersonations"
Nunnally giggled taking a small piece of her already cut food, the chefs made sure Nunnally could easily eat it "I think it was great"
"See even she thought I was great" Clovis said happily
Idle chatter continued until supper ended to where Lelouch took Nunnally up to the top floor "Where are we going Lelouch?"
"Someplace somewhat nostalgic" Lelouch spoke in a soft voice
When they arrived Lelouch pushed Nunnally to the garden "Lelouch, this scent it is similar to the Aries Villa"
"That's right, Clovis had this built replicating even the flowers" Lelouch said happy to see Nunnally's smile
"Lelouch will you take me to real Villa tomorrow?" Nunnally asked
"I don't know Nunnally, I doubt anyone has been taking care of it since mother died, If it is still beautiful I will" Lelouch remarked having some doubt
"Brother even if it isn't I want to be there" Nunnally says with determination
"Alright Nunnally, I understand" Lelouch replied. Lelouch takes Nunnally to a bench and sits down with Nunnally near him"
"Feels nostalgic" Nunnally smiled relaxing as the sun set
Meanwhile Jeremiah was talking to the rest of the Purebloods at a bar not too far from the Britannian Military base. "So we are going to become the royal guard of Lelouch Vi Britannia?" the orange haired person named Kewell
"In simple terms that is what's happening" Jeremiah responded "We fight for Britannia and what better way than defending the life or a Prince"
"I understand that Lord Jeremiah and I agree but aren't you mixing public and private matters?"
"Lord Kewell we are knights of the empire and all of us have honor. My honor was tarnished ten years ago and now I have a perfect opportunity to regain it, honor and loyalty in service of our glorious empire" Jeremiah states with passion
"All Hail Britannia!" the group shouts
After a few more drinks most of the Purebloods leave leaving Jeremiah with the silver-haired dark-skinned women Villetta "Jeremiah, I need to discuss something with you"
"What is it about Villetta?" Jeremiah asks curiously
"That boy, the Prince I mean I have seen him somewhere before" Villetta states looking into her glass "You see right before the Terrorists counterattack against us I saw that young man surrounded by the deceased royal guards of Clovis. I don't remember what happened next by when I came to my Sutherland was gone"
Jeremiah looks at Villetta wide eyed before thinking "makes sense, Bartley at the other staff weren't at their posts and even saying I am a prince of Britannia wouldn't change them leaving. Villetta you cannot tell this to anyone else"
Villetta face turns into shock "Why? He could possibly be a threat to the empire"
"It is not as simple as that, handle this wrong and the Britannian structure would begin breaking apart. We shall wait it out for now" Jeremiah stated and Villetta nods in agreement.
After Nunnally went to bed Lelouch headed down to Clovis and requested a different uniform be made for him. "That doesn't seem to hard, I have most of the materials I need" Clovis replied.
"Thank you" Lelouch replied before heading off to bed
The next day was the day Lelouch would be sent to the homeland. He put on the outfit he requested from Clovis. A black tight almost dress shirt with the seams done in gold trimming and Black cape that covers both of his shoulders and attached by golden buttons, with the seams of the cape in gold and the imperial family symbol on the cape in gold. He heads over to Nunnally's room and sees her in a pink and white dress "Nunnally are you ready to go?"
"Yep, let's go big brother" Nunnally said cheerfully
Lelouch along with Nunnally head to the car that was waiting for them, the driver opens the door showing Clovis already waiting for them inside it. Lelouch helps Nunnally into the car and they drive off toward the private plane. Upon entering the plane they sat down and Clovis pulled out a chessboard "Since we will be a while how about a match, it has been a long time"
Lelouch laughed at the idea "You know you have never beat me"
"That was ten years ago" Clovis replied
"Alright" Lelouch replied The match ended almost as fast as it started with Lelouch crushing Clovis just as he crushed him in Shinjuku
"Umm what happened?" Nunnally asked innocently now that the game was over
"You should know by now Nunnally I never lose" Lelouch stated proudly
Nunnally thought for a moment then smiled "But Schneizel always beat you"
Lelouch's face went somewhat sour he knew Nunnally never meant any harm but that hit him where it hurts. After a few more chess games and general discussion the plane finally lands at Pendragon the capital city Britannia. Clovis was the first one to exit followed by Nunnally and Lelouch. Many people were waiting for him but Lelouch could only guess that ninety-percent of them were there as a formality. As they toward a car that would take them to the palace Lelouch gets tackled from the side, Luckily he let go of Nunnally's chair in time or it would have been a disaster. Lelouch turns to see the person who tackled him was Euphemia "Oh Lelouch I missed you so much, she begin crying on him while holding him tightly, I missed you so much"
"Hey, hey could you get off of me, compared to me you're a little heavy and I'm sure Nunnally would love to meet you a lot more" Lelouch replied glued to the ground due to his lack of physical skill
Euphemia's cheeks puffed out as she pouted and got off of him "ten years and you still don't know how to treat a women" She went over to Nunnally kneeling beside her and touching her hand "Hello Nunnally"
"Is it really you" Nunnally's eyes swell up she begins crying "It has been so long"
"It has" Euphie smiled as she began pushing the wheelchair
Lelouch got up and began walking beside her as he brushed off the dust "So I am guessing Cornelia and Schneizel are here to?"
"No, My big sister isn't here" Euphie stated "But she did call me when news of you being alive became public and said she would be coming to meet you soon, and as for Schneizel I think he will be here tomorrow"
Lelouch suppressed a grin that was trying to form on his face "With my two biggest obstacles not here using my geass on the emperor will be easy"
They continued walking as Euphie asked them what happened over the ten years. When they arrived at the palace the guards there wouldn't let them in "I am sorry your highness's but the emperor will not be seeing anyone until tomorrow"
This somewhat worried Lelouch as he hoped this was only a coincidence "Hey Euphie can I ask you to look after Nunnally for a second, I promised to take her someplace and now that I have the time I want to check it out before taking her"
"Umm sure Lelouch, where would that be anyway" Euphie asked curiously
"The Aries Villa" Lelouch replied walking towards its direction having memorized where it was as a child.
When he arrives there are two large guards blocking it. Lelouch walks up to them prepared to use his geass if necessary "You highness we have been waiting for you, please go inside" the guards spoke in unison
Lelouch was now feeling very uncomfortable with this, first the emperor and now this. When he entered here was little change in what it looked like before. It was still well kept but the blood and the bullets on the rug remained
"Welcome Lelouch I have been expecting you" Lelouch eyes quickly scan the surrounding and sees a young blonde kid with hair to the ground appear from the top of the stairway "You may call me V.V"
FINALLY this was boring as hell. Near the end I ran out of ideas I just wanted to get to this point really badly because it is epic. What happens to Lelouch now that he has met V.V. Clovis is alive, Lelouch is in Britannia, and now met V.V how will this all effect the story?
It is very late here and I am tired
