Hey people I am soo sorry for not updating for so long.
My muse was gone, but I really couldn't leave the story like this and I had to read the manga again. OMG! I never imagined that it would turn out like this, but I won't spoil it for those that haven't read it yet And here the muse was back full force.
I want to thank my beta Funga-fu-fu, for editing the chapters!!
I really love you all who were with me until the end of the story. This last chapter is as thanks for you!
Oh! And I made the chapter extra long as an apology for taking my time updating. I hope you like it. And the entire story too.
Thanks again! Love ya! -hugs-
Note: The chapter may have some mistakes, because my beta can't look at it at the moment, and I don't want to make you wait more, because I am late with posting the chapter already. I will post the edited chapter later. Hope you bear with it.
It was a week after the assault of the two of the three remaining Shadow Hunters. Yuuki was coping well and with the help of Kaname she was able to overcome the loss of her family that was reminded to her again. Kaname had noted that after every breakdown she was having, in the end Yuuki emerged even stronger. She was amazing in his eyes. Kaname and Yuuki had become very close after that night of their kiss. That night between them was shared a silent confession of love. And a bond that was stronger than the thickest chain.
Kaname had decided that it is about time that they track down the last Hunter. The Shadow Hunters had caused enough problems. He had sent everyone in the Moon Dorm including himself and Yuuki to search for any clues of his whereabouts. He and Yuuki searched together, since he didn't want to leave her side.
At the moment he and Yuuki were waiting for the others to return. Kaname was checking the mail that they had received during the two days that they were out searching. He was about to open one letter that was different from the others.
'It smells like…'
His eyes widened a bit. The letter smelled of blood. Yuuki sensing Kaname's distress turned and looked at him. Knowing that very little things could have that effect on Kaname, she walked to him. It was then that she realized what was making him act this way. She smelled blood. It was subtle, but still it was noticeable.
"Who is it from?" Yuuki asked, while looking at it.
"It doesn't have any address, or name on the outside."
Kaname opened it and read.
To Kasumi Yuuki,
I know that you and the other pure blood are searching for me,
So I decided to help you a little. Well I say it is about time we
put and end to this fight, that started so long ago, with the
slaughter of your clan of course. I will be waiting at your family
mansion at the night of the new moon. Then your blood will finally
Sai of the Shadow Hunters
Yuuki's eyes widened. He wanted to meet her at her family home. The one that brought so many painful memories.
"You must stay strong, Yuuki." Kaname said in a comforting manner.
"Yes. I know. But it isn't easy…"
She sighed and looked down. She knew that she had to face her memories, and her past. She knew that, but no one said it will be easy. The hunter wanted the psychological advantage over her, and he got it by simply choosing the place for the final showdown. Suddenly, she felt all alone. Like that scared little girl all those ears ago.
Kaname sensed that his love is remembering things that are painful to her, and he walked over her. He held her close to him, so that she will feel better.
Yuuki felt Kaname's arms holding her, and her soul felt safe.
'Everything will turn out well.' She tried to assure herself.
Kaname released Yuuki and read the letter again. The new moon was three nights from now. Yuuki had some time to get her mind ready for the psychological torture she will be forced to endure. Facing her memories will be hard. He knew that from his own experience. When he was small, he had hard time going back to their old home. The home in which his parents had died. The memories were suffocating and painful, but he faced them. Kaname thought, that from other point of view, it was good that the Hunter choose this place, because usually a Pure Blood's blood is pulsing, whenever is back to its place of birth.
The blood will rush and pulse in Yuuki and it will help her win her battle. He will interfere only if his girl is in grave danger, in which, he doubted that Sai will put her in. Kaname believed in Yuuki strongly. He knew that she was strong and that she will be the victor from this battle.
'This is it…' thought Yuuki when Kaname lead her the way towards her old home. She was feeling very nervous right now, but Kaname's presence helped a lot. She saw what was once a beautiful home was now a rundown building. It was very large and it gave the feeling that someone royal had lived here at sometime during its history.
When they approached it they both noticed that the building smelled of blood. It was like it was covered in it. The dark red color to the outside walls didn't help any. It made it look all the more terrifying.
Yuuki stopped at the entrance of the mansion, hesitating. 'I'm really going to do this. And I can! Kaname said that I was strong enough to defeat him. And I trust him with my life.' Yuuki's eyes now changed from hesitant to determined. She would overcome this.
Kaname watched the change in her eyes, somewhat proud that she was able to concur her own fears that fast. His girl was now grown up. And she became a woman that he was proud of, a woman that he came to love. He would give his life for her and he made sure she knew that. The only thing that was in her way to be completely his was this hunter. 'He will die tonight either by my hand or by my Yuuki's.
He saw that she was still standing there in thought, so he laid a hand on her shoulder comfortingly and whispered in her ear.
"You can do it."
Her answer was:
Kaname smiled at this. He walked in front of her and opened the door for the lady, still with a smile on his face.
Yuuki smiled at him and walked in, with Kaname following her.
Sai was in the old mansion day before the fight. He knew it was good choice for ending everything. He had after all been the one to start it, with Yuuki's parents, and now their daughter was going to finish it.
He knew she was strong, but he had drunk the blood of her mother and father. There was no way he was going to let her defeat him.
'She may be a Pure Blood, but I am older and I have much more experience than her. She should be easy pray.'
He knew in his heart, that the vampire in him wanted nothing, but to obey every wish, the two superior vampires voiced. That was one of their special abilities after all. To command every lesser vampire, it doesn't matter if noble, or a commoner. They were beautiful and powerful, and he had wanted to be just like them. That was the reason he established the Shadow Hunters. To be able to collect enough of their sacred blood so that he can become one as well.
At the time he had decided that it is best to start in the Kasumis and then he was going to move to the Kurans and then to the other Pure Blooded families.
'Damn it! I should have started with that crazy witch Shizuka Hiou. If had found her then, there was no way of the Pure Bloods to know that someone of their own had died.' With the Kasumis it was a big event. They were one of the most highly regarded clans in the vampire world and he had decided to start with them, because they and the Kurans had the abilities to stop him at the time.
'They were a threat and I decided to eliminate them right away, and that was my mistake. Though I never knew they had a daughter.' He looked threw the window and saw two figures approaching.
'It is time' to get his revenge for ruining his plans for greatness.
He walked into the entrance hall, where the final battle will commence.
Kaname and Yuuki walked into the building, and stopped to take in their surroundings. It was dark and chilly. Kaname, him liking and preferring fire as his weapon wasn't very fond of the cold. Yuuki didn't even notice.
They heard footsteps and both tensed, on high alert.
The door across them opened.
'Finally I will see the person who ruined my life' thought Yuuki with anger.
Kaname was right beside her. He felt her anger, but didn't do anything. The psychological battle had begun.
Both of them looked at the figure and followed his descend on the stairs.
Yuuki studied him.
He had black hair and was very pale. His eyes were the color of red, though she doubted he was in bloodlust. Her eyes widened.
'His eyes are natural red!!' Yuuki was shocked.
His was dressed in black clothes that stylishly enveloped his frame. He smirked at her.
"So Kasumi Yuuki, we finally meet."
Yuuki didn't say anything. She just watched his every move.
"I see you can't even say a word to me. Have I struck you speechless?"
He was taunting her, but it had no effect so far. He mentally frowned 'Maybe I'm asking the wrong questions.' He smirked again, this time wider.
"Or have you lost yourself in memories?"
Yuuki's eyes flashed. She looked at him sharply.
"Oh I got a reaction from the princess." He grinned evilly. "Did you remember your mommy? She was beautiful you know, too bad she married your father. I see you have poor taste too, with this Kuran boy." He laughed after saying this.
Kaname was enraged. 'How dare that scum talk like this for Yuuki, her mother and for me!' He then looked at Yuuki. She looked deadly calm. 'I must not attack him, he is Yuuki's pray.'
Kaname continued to do everything in his power to stop himself from killing the other vampire. Yuuki on the other hand looked calm. But as they say still waters run deep.
Kaname sensed that Yuuki was moving and backed away a bit. He didn't want to get in the way of the fight.
Yuuki disappeared from her spot and Sai's eyes widened. She was right behind him, but he managed to jump aside and evade her claws. Her eyes were beginning to glow red. It was faint for now, but her anger was evident.
Sai was looking at her. He decided to attack. He melted into the shadows and disappeared from their sight.
Yuuki looked around. She knew he was close, but couldn't pinpoint exactly where. She couldn't smell him, because the whole house was reeking of blood and he smelled the same. That is when her senses screamed to her that someone is behind her. She had learned during training that she should follow her instincts. They are to never let her down.
She ducked right in time to see a clawed hand, but it did manage to graze her forehead. Her blood was flowing down and it was a hindrance to her eyes. She ignored it and used her powers to make herself a whip of water with an ice handle.
Kaname admired her weapon from where he was standing. She really was best with it.
Yuuki leashed the whip at Sai, but again it only grazed him on the arm. He glared at her.
'He is fast, I have to do something about that speed!', Yuuki though.
She aimed for his feet, but he jumped at her and tackled her to the ground. He was on top of her now.
"Now I have you where I want you girl."
Yuuki could feel that Kaname was ready to jump at the hunter any moment now. She yelled.
"Kaname don't interfere! He is mine to kill."
Kaname didn't say anything, but nodded and stayed in his place.
Sai was amused. Even though she had injured him more that he thought she was capable of, there was no way that she could kill him.
"Is that so? And how will you kill me if you are dead my dear?", he taunted her again.
"Like this!" Yuuki threw him off her and stood up. 'Time to get serious', she thought.
She started to make mesmerizing movements with the blue whip. Sai was dazed for a moment and in gave Yuuki an opening to hit him in the left leg.
Sai was about to laugh at her for just grazing him again, when he felt his whole leg freeze up. He was taken back from this, because he never expected something like that.
Yuuki didn't waist any time in attacking again. Before he could move again she froze up his other leg. Now he was incapable of moving.
"You bitch! How dare you do this to me?!"
Sai was afraid for his life now. He was unable to move and his enemy was lightly injured. He tried to think of something that will help. Yuuki was standing in front of him as if daring him to do something. He was panicking now.
He then remembered one spell that might be able to help him. Sai bit his finger and let his blood drop on the ice that was holding his legs. He murmured a few words in forgotten language. Then he felt it. The ice was being melted my black flames.
Yuuki's eyes widened when she saw the flames. She was sure that he couldn't escape her ice.
When Sai was free he immediately leaped at Yuuki, but she was expecting something like this and she evaded him and without any hesitation she stabbed her hand into his chest. He grunted from the pain and tensed when he felt her hand grab his heart.
'No! It cannot and this way! I can't die like this!'
Yuuki then her eyes fully red now, in a moment of cruelty, pulled his heart out and held in front of him. She crushed it and watched as the life left his eyes and he disintegrated into dust.
'It is over!'
Yuuki turned around and looked at Kaname. He smiled at her and walked towards her. He then held her close to him and whispered.
"It is over now Yuuki. You can finally move on with your life."
Yuuki smiled back and nodded, not trusting her voice just yet.
When they returned to Cross Academy, they were greeted by Ruka , Zero and the rest of the night class. They were very happy to see the two Pure Bloods healthy that Ruka in her happiness hugged the closest person in range, which turned out to be Zero. That led to blushing and embarrassment for them and lots of laughter for the others. Even Rima could be found chuckling at the scene. Some of the vampires wore knowing smirks that were ignored from both Zero and Ruka.
Kaname and Yuuki were happy that the ordeal was over. Now Yuuki was ready to go on with her life. Now it was back in her control. It was very hard for her to be herself when she had no memories, or when she knew that someone was after her life. Freedom was something that she appreciated.
Kaname was happy that his love was safe. He knew from the moment he saw her that snowy night that she will be special for him, and that is the main reason he saved her. He felt connected to her somehow. Like there was a bond between them. He watched her grow into the beauty that she was now.
They were chatting in the lobby of the Night Dorm. Yuuki though was tired of the long day and decided that she would retire for the night.
"I'm tired guys, I'll go to bed now." She told them with a small smile.
They bid her goodnight, but she was hardly coherent to return it. When she entered her room, she headed straight for her bed. She heard the door open behind her, and sleepily turned around in her sheets, completely ignoring the sound. Kaname entered and closed the door behind him.
He smiled when he saw that Yuuki was already asleep. He walked to her and gently kissed her on the forehead. Yuuki smiled in her sleep. He sat on the edge of the bed, so that he won't wake her. He watched her for a couple of minutes, when Yuuki shifted in her sleep. Unconsciously she reached for something, perhaps a pillow, but found his arm and decided that it was good enough to be used as a substitute teddy bear.
Kaname found himself unable to leave the room. He slipped in the bed next to her and Yuuki moved closer to the new warmth – him. He stood like this and silently wished that they could be like this forever.
Yuuki slept threw the night and the entire next day. When she woke up the next evening she found something warm next to her. She looked up and her eyes met the eyes of Kaname. Sure they were close, but she wasn't used to waking up next to a guy.
Her eyes widened and she blushed deep red and backed away a bit, but yelped when she fell over the edge.
It was going to be interesting year.
Yaaay. The end.
I hope you liked the chapter, though I really had a hard time deciding on an ending. I really had no idea what to write, and I hope it turned out good.
I apologize for any grammar or spelling mistakes and thank you for bearing with me.
I don't know how it turned out, but I am happy with this chapter, but I might change the ending if my muse is back with something better -laughs- Oh and I'm not sure how the fight turned out, but I think that it is better than the previous one.
I really love you all who stayed with me until the end, and THANK YOU!!
