"Good morning, ladies. How is everyone tonight?" the Night Class play boy shouted. From every direction I heard a loud we're fine. Fuck that was annoying, too bad I myself had a crush on the idiot play boy.
Unlike the rest of these idiot girls I knew Aido's true personally. Well he really is friendly, childish and immature he also has a darker side to him. He has a pretty bad temper and will go as far threaten to kill people. Actually, from what I heard, he usually only threatens Ruka and he normally asks if she wishes to die. I also knew Hanabusa was the youngest in his family and the only boy so he was incredibly spoiled. Still, I had my reasons for liking him.
In fact, we knew each other personally; to a level at least. We met last year before the beginning of the school year. I had been staying with Uncle Kaien for three days to prepare for the school year and he had called both Hanabusa and his cousin over. My uncle wanted them to do something called Friendship Evening; a thing where some Night Class students speak to human freshmen. I didn't go to the stupid thing but I heard Yuki accidentally gave Aido the stupid nickname.
Anyways it was Kaien's privet living quarters that we met. At first both he and his cousin, Akatsuki, thought I was another adopted daughter. Carelessly, as I had been in the middle of a book at the time, I corrected them by saying I was his niece. It was careless because I wasn't supposed to lead on I knew about vampires; saying I was related to a vampire hunter would imply I knew that vampires were real. So Kaien went into explaining that I was the daughter of old friends of his and I had called him Uncle since I was very little.
I personally think Aido knows I know about the Night Class being vampires. He wasn't called a genius for nothing. Not to mention that I think he has been trying to make me confess to knowing for the last year. At least he did whenever we met each other. I wont say I am a well behaved girl because I'm not. I sneak out of the dorms almost only a nightly bases. On the nights I avoid the prefects -though Sakura usually ignores the fact I was outside- and when Aido skips classes, we end up talking.
Heh, for the first little bit he was annoyed that I wouldn't swoon over him like the others girls. I found it fun and would start to tease him by poking him in the chest and calling him names. Not mean names but I often called him flower boy and in a playful way. Soon he gave up the fact I wouldn't fall for his charm and question me about my life. Even asked me what I thought about vampires once; as one of his plans to get me to confess. I simply told him they were confusing do to how different they were in each movie and book. He tried to get me to clarify -as he does not give up easily- but I'd simply tell him I had to go back to bed or my Uncle would be upset with me.
"Hey, Ashlen, are you alright?" A voice cut through my thoughts. Blinking a couple of times I turned my attention to see Sakura standing next to me.
"Yeah, my head just hurts a little." I lied. Well not really.
The cause of my nightmare really did cause my head to hurt. I just didn't really notice it until now. My real reason for the excuse was that Sakura knew of my relationship with Aido. She teased me almost as bad as I teased her and Zero. I didn't want to deal with that right now, not with all these girls standing around. However, while Sakura might revile my crush, I doubt she'd ever revile the fact I have actually sat down and spoken with the vampire. How does she know? Sakura once caught us sitting at the fountain talking. I got a three day suspension for sneaking out of my dorm. I don't know the punishment Aido got.
'Why does that idiot have to be so annoying and yet so cute at the same time?' I thought to myself, sighing heavily as the vampire began to pass us -as in the group I was sanding in-. I heard Sakura chuckled and I turned to glare at her.
"You are such a bad liar. You were thinking how cute Aido was, weren't you?" She asked, purposely loud enough for others to hear. That son of a bitch.
Most of the girls around me ignored the statement. They didn't care who was crushing on who unless that boy paid attention to a certain girl. It happens all the time with Yuki. It also happened to me a few times last year. That was around the middle and end of the school year though, once Aido and I had evolved into friends. At least I think we are OK friends; I don't really know what he thinks of our relationship.
"You bitch." I grumbled lowly, insuring only she could hear. There may be a chance where some vampires heard me but if they did they didn't bother pay any attention to it.
"What? Don't deny it, Ashlen. You like him." Sakura poked my chest teasingly. I simply slapped her hand away before sighing.
"So? You like Zero." I said in my defence, my arms crossed against my chest. Sakura looked ready to defend herself when a white sleeved hand touched her shoulder.
Oh why did Ashlen have to be so stubborn? It's obvious that she liked him and I knew Aido liked Ashlen back. Now he might not have a crush on Ashlen but I knew he liked her in a sense. Aido was a genus, about the smartest in the Night Class after Kaname. So it didn't surprise me one bit last year when he questioned me if Ashlen knew what he was. Now I wasn't allowed to tell the truth. For one I'd get in a hell of a lot of trouble and two I wasn't that much of a bitch to betray my best friend. So instead I told him I wasn't allowed to tell; which basicly hinted to yes.
I think because he suspected Ashlen knew his secret he felt comfortable around her. Of course he tried to bite her on multiple times. Ashlen usually stops him by pushing on his chest and calling him a pervert. What I don't know, however, was if Ashlen allowed Aido to know she was not human. I don't think so. Ashlen was very secretive with her privet life. It was more likely that Aido would catch her using magic rather than Ashlen telling him herself.
Speaking of Aido, before I could respond to Ashlen's comment about me liking Zero, I felt him touch my shoulder. I knew it was him behind me due to two facts. For one thing it was a vampire hunter trait I had to tell what kind of vampire was behind me. For the second thing I had mentioned his name so it was pretty obvious it must have caught his attention.
"Good evening, Sakura-Chan." He greeted with a charming smile. I could already feel the girls around me start to glare but I ignored them as I smiled back.
"Good evening, Aido-San." I said, turning back to look at Ashlen. I felt Aido move his hand away from me and I winked at Ashlen.
"Good luck." I teased before walking away. I think Ashlen was ticked at me but I was in a good mood so I didn't give much of a crap; she'd forgive me later.
"Why are you leaving her alone with that idiot?" Zero questioned as I rejoined him. I only shrugged and crossed my arms.
"It's fine. Aido wont hurt her. She is the only human he seems to get along with. This is a peace mission after all, isn't it?" I asked, smiling at him innocently. However I frowned as I noticed him glare at me as I mentioned the mission.
"Yeah right. It's far more likely he is just after her blood." He grumbled, glaring at the vampire as he spoke to Ashlen. I just rolled my eyes.
I couldn't tell him that Aido has tried to bite Ashlen multiple times. That was last year and, even though by school rules Aido can't get in trouble this year but that wouldn't stop Zero's anger. Not to mention I would give away the fact that Ashlen continued to sneak out of the dorms even after Zero would catch her. I try to enforce the curfew rule on Ashlen but I usually let her get away with it; even if I was forced to suspend her for three days after catching her and Aido talking near the fountain. I hear they just picked a different spot to meet up if they were both outside after that.
"Well let him then." I said, cracking my knuckles and chuckled. "If he does, I will beat him into dust." I reassured darkly. I heard a small hmphed laugh come from Zero and turned to see him smirking slightly.
"Not if I do it first." He told me and I pouted.
"Hey, I had first dibs!" I whined childishly.
Being left alone with Aido wasn't what I was pissed off about. It was the fact that a group of his shallow, jealous fan girls stood around me. Not that I was actually scared or anything. Jealous name calling didn't bother me and if the girls tried to get violent I'd simply call for Sakura's or Zero's help. I wasn't over friendly with Zero but because I was friends with Sakura there are times we talked.
"Did you want something, Aido-Sempia?" I questioned, trying to ignore the growing aura of jealous girls. Luckily I hadn't called him Hanabusa or by his nickname; it would be a big give away that we had a special relationship.
"What's with the Sempia? You never used it last year." He said, a mischievously smile on his lips. Obviously he wanted his fan girls to be jealous of me.
"You're avoiding the question." I replied, touching the side of my head as it began to throb with pain. Hanabusa lifted one of his slender eyebrows as if he noticed I was in pain; which he probably did.
"Never mind what I want, are you feeling alright?" He questioned, his voice hinted with concern. It was sweet of him to care but I could have gone without all the fan girls around me.
"I'm fine, it's just another headache," I answered, looking him in the eye. His eyebrow lowered and he looked back into my eyes, understanding that I was giving him a secret message.
A year ago I had also had nightmares like the one I had earlier. They were usually always the same which I expect to be my parent's death. I had another recurring dream but that one was more fuzzy than the death of my parents. All I can get out of it is a boy and a feeling of betrayal. Anyways when I had told Aido about myself I told him I had a cause of amnesia and would usually wake up with a headache after certain nightmares.
"Perhaps you should consult your uncle. Anyways, I should get going before I get in trouble," Aido said, his smirk returning as he chuckled boyishly, "Or get you into trouble." He added, obviously speaking about the fan girls around me. Or did he actually mean Zero, who I noticed was glaring this way.
Aido's voice returned as he leaned forwards. I felt myself blush as I could feel the vampire's warm breath on the side of my face. I couldn't recall if he had ever done this last year and I was unsure what he was going to do. Even if he was kind of careless about keeping his vampire nature a secret he wouldn't be stupid enough to bite me. So was he going to tell me something or possible... something else?
"I'll be looking forwards to our little meetings again. Welcome back to Cross Academy." His voice whispered in my ear before a pair of warm lips touched my already warm cheek. It only made the heat in my cheeks heat up as the vampire then pulled his head away.
I had no words to say and I could no longer control my blush or my surprise. I was still well aware of anything thought, as I heard Aido chuckled again, proud of himself, as he rejoined the others on his way to school. God damn that vampire! He will pay for that later... but not tonight. My head hurts to much to deal with the idiot.
Oh and I guess I should mention, if I hadn't earlier, school restarted only two weeks ago. It is why Aido welcomed me back. I hadn't really had the time to see him since school started up. Not only have I been too busy with my mission to visit with him but I have been napping in the during the cross over of classes and too tired to sneak out of the dorms.
"You witch!" I heard a girl from behind me shout. Forcing myself control my embarrassment I turned around to prepare for the jealous antics of the fan girls.
"Excuse me?" I questioned. Witch was actually a name I was actually a new name and, truthfully, I was curious to why she choice that name out of all the others she could have picked.
"You cast a spell on our Idol! Why else would he kiss you?!" a different girl shirked at me. Aw crap!
I was no where near the mood to deal with the fan girls myself. My head still hurt not only from the nightmare but now from the stress of having to deal with all this. So I took to running over to Sakura and Zero, who still stood next to each other. I honestly hope they didn't see the kiss; Zero would be pissed off and I am unsure how Sakura would react.
"Is something the matter, Mss?" Sakura asked innocently as I ducked behind her. That bitch, pretending to play all innocent; she probably did see what happened then.
"Idol-Sempia kissed her." The One of the five girls that chased me growled. Oh... Sakura was calling her Mss, not me... well at least I only thought my insult and didn't say it.
"He kissed you?" Zero demanded. Sweat dropping I turned around from my hidden spot to smile nervously at him.
"Only a cheek kiss and I think it was simply to get them jealous." I answered, rubbing the back of my neck as I heard Sakura talking to the girls that chased me.
"Why? Maybe because she's prettier than you and isn't a bitch." Sakura answered a question I didn't hear. To her answer I found myself shifting in my spot uncomfortably and trying to ignore my headache.
I wasn't the type of girl that thought I was overly pretty or into myself. In fact a few of the girls that chased me were actually really pretty; they were just bitches. I have been told I was pretty in the past but I didn't really care for the complement. I'd say my thanks and move on. Heh, I wonder how pretty they'd think I am if they knew what I did on weekends.
"Whatever. Come on girls, lets just go back to the dorm." The one girl huffed before she and her friends walked off to the Sun Dorms. As they were leaving Sakura looked back at me and gave me a thumbs up.
"So Aido kissed you? Nice." She winked. I rolled my eyes as and ignored a obviously upset Zero.
"Again, it was just a cheek kiss. Anyways, I'm going to go back to the dorm myself. I need to take my medicine before my headache gets worse." I complained, holding the side of my head again. I don't know why I did that, or anyone did that, when it did so very little to help stop the pain.
"Alright, take care." Sakura waved, even if I hadn't left yet. I nodded and turned in the direction to the Sun Dorms.
"Good night, Sakura. You to, Zero, Yuki." I called back to the prefects as I ran back to my room. The sooner I got back the sooner I can make my head feel better.
As Ashlen ran off Yuki waved her off. I already waved and even if I didn't I couldn't now. Zero had been giving me the evil eye ever since he found out Aido had kissed Ashlen. It was highly likely he blamed me for it, seeing as I left her alone with him. I didn't care if he was mad though, it would be worth getting scolded. I mean I knew the two had some kind of relationship but I didn't know Aido would kiss her. Somehow I don't think the kiss was a simple method to get the others jealous.
"So I am going to patrol the Sun Dorms, Zero can patrol the forest and Yuki will patrol inside the school." I ordered, smirking happily. Yuki giggled and saluted me while Zero humphed and crossed his arms.
"Roger Captain Sakura!" Yuki said playfully. I smiled at her and nodded."
"Good Sargent." I cooed playfully back as we both giggled. Zero only rolled his eyes at me.
"I'm going now." He mumbled and walked off. I frowned as I watched him leave but forced a smile for Yuki.
"I'll see you later." I waved as I ran for the Sun Dorms. I actually hope I caught a few people trying to sneak out; I felt like having a little fun tonight.
