I'm excited about this…of course I will bring you ZeKi fans the fluff you all deserve BUT this is more then just a one shot…given it's length how about a big, ol' DUH! I came up with this just by writing randomly in my notebook one night…I didn't think I'd actually come up with a REAL storyline for it…crazy! I know!!
In The Summer's Twilight
Chapter 1: Not So Merry-Go-Round
"What do you mean?" Zero asked the Chairman, his voice seething with anger. The Chairman laughed defensively, holding up his hands in protection from Zero wrath.
"Well, it's just a month…that's all!" he said like it would honestly be a piece of cake, "You'll be FINE!" He told Zero, and Yuuki as well but she had remained silent upon hearing the news…oh the news!
"I am being called away…" she had clearly remembered the Chairman tell the both of them, "I need you both to stay at the summer house and watch it." Yuuki assumed this meant that she would be all alone in a house with Zero…she had been alone with Zero before sure, but not for a WHOLE SUMMER. She held her hand to her heart for a moment. She couldn't figure out why it was beating so damn fast.
"But, Chairman!" Zero tried hard to fight it and by his face one could tell he was flustered and nervous thinking about how he'll spend so much time alone with Yuuki. Zero feared losing control…in more ways then one.
"You've been very good with your problem, Zero-kun…I wouldn't worry about THAT!" The Chairman exclaimed with a grin on his face, thinking he had picked up on Zero's big problem. Hell yea, the bloodlust was a BIG problem, but Yuuki had tamed Zero in his thirsty ways in sorts and she always asked him if he needed her blood. He'd hate himself even more if he'd beg her for a drop of blood.
It was actually his sexual lust he wasn't sure he'd be able to control, and unexpectedly…even though he had no idea, Yuuki was thinking nearly the same thing. Couldn't the Chairman tell her face was bright red? There was no possible way for him not to notice it! Unless…he was doing it on purpose! In a means of a way of making his poor daughter suffer! In either case, he ignored BOTH their protests and shook his head.
"No excuses!" He ordered, the rarely seen serious Chairman had managed to find his way into the conversation. "Get all your clothes packed and be ready by morning." They both nodded at his command and halfheartedly started on their way.
As Yuuki followed close behind Zero, the Chairman pulled her away for a quick word, the normal, playful expression had returned to his face. "Don't worry about cooking and cleaning my dear Yuuki!" Her father gushed.
She let out a fake laugh and hoped Zero was still near-by. "All right, Cha-Father!" She was proud of herself for the catch, causing her father to beam wider.
"No need to worry," He repeated, "Zero-kun is very domestic and can take care of everything for my Yu-…" but before he had got a chance to finish a punch had got him hard on the side of his face.
Yuuki suddenly found she was being tugged by the hand out of the office and "Huh…" was the only thing she felt like saying as they found themselves on the empty grounds of the Academy.
"Huh what?" Zero asked her. He let go of her hand and slowed his pace to hers so he could walk beside her.
She shrugged, "The Chairman's summer estate his huge! I wonder what we're going to do up there for time…" She sighed and her thoughts shape plans for her summer vacation.
"I don't care." Was an answer he was hoping he could stick with, but he really did doubt it greatly. Basically, if you asked half the student body the question "If Zero could love anyone, who would it be?" They'd all say Yuuki…Hell he was good at hiding it from her…but he wasn't that good. Even that damned Kuran had called him out on it! And that really pissed Zero off.
Zero shook head, trying to clear his thoughts. "Who cares…it won't be that bad." He tried to keep his ultimate cool. "No, it won't be bad Yuuki." He turned to her and gave her one of those rare Zero smiles that no one else saw but her. They were ONLY for her. She didn't know that, but they were.
Yuuki grinned and nodded in agreement. "You're right!" She said with a new burst of excitement. "I'm going to go pack now! I'll meet you later!" She walked off, humming a happy little tune and trying her hardest not to turn and look into Zero's amethyst eyes one last time, because once she got herself lost in them…there was no way she was coming back.
What did that mean? She asked herself, slowing her pace as she still felt Zero's piercing eyes on her back, though she managed to keep herself going…for some reason today she couldn't seem to keep her emotions in check.
She kicked off and started on a steady run, though she hated running with a passion she felt as though she should…and was glad when she finally made her way to her empty dorm…a bit sad that Yori had gone home.
She shut the door behind her and sighed, feeling her heart rate finally slow down. She was okay for now at least and that suited her fine for the moment.
She walked over towards her closet, which seemed rather bare for a teenaged girl, and pulled out everything she thought she might need for the summer's activities.
It really isn't a lot, she suddenly found herself grinning. "Oh, I can always go shopping!" She said happily as she laid the clothes upon the bed and kneeled down to reach the suitcase which laid underneath it.
It had been over 2 years since she had last been to the summer estate, or Amethyst Ocean Manor, as herself, the Chairman, and Zero knew it. She remembered the day The Chairman had decided to give it that name out of the blue.
He was in a mood or something…
Kurosu Academy didn't allow student off campus without permission and the Chairman didn't like breaks very much but summer was different. Summer was one of times during the year were the Chairman REALLY felt at ease and free which is why this "Business thing" caught her by surprise.
For a moment she lost her train of thought and pulled the suitcase on top of all the clothes that lay on the bed.
"What to bring?" She asked herself as she made her way to the draws she kept the remainder of her clothing items in. She smirked as she started to tear through the draws and the rest of the room apart.
"I won't forget a single…" She stopped…for there was a soft knock upon the door and Yuuki's heart skipped a beat upon hearing it. She eased her way towards the door.
"Yes?" She called back to the owner of the gentle knock.
"Yuuki…" the voice called to her and as fast as she could, she swung open the door.
"Kaname-sempai…" Yuuki said, her voice slightly breathless.
"I came to see you before I left." He told her softly in his deep, soothing voice. He reached out gently and placed his hand upon her cheek. She was helpless and found herself unable to move under the lock of his blood red eyes…a suiting color.
"Kaname-sempai…" She let out a gasp as he lightly ran his hand from her cheek into her hair. She quickly fell into the moment of intimacy but quickly escaped it as fast as it came. She pulled away from his touch, finding herself slightly embarrassed all of a sudden.
"I need to pack my things…but thank you so much for coming to say good-bye to me. I'm really honored." She bowed respectfully trying her hardest to avoid eye contact with the man…knowing that she had a nasty habit of being taken in by beautiful eyes.
"Yuuki, my dear girl…" he denied her subtle request for a departure and walked farther into the room.
"Kaname-…" She stopped short as he picked her up off the floor and placed her on the bed. Her face quickly flushed red as he pressed himself closer to her.
"Kaname-sempai?" She questioned as he lowered his face…his lips inches away from hers.
"I think," he said, his voice barely a whisper. "I'll take your…"
"Kuran-sempai." A deep, angry, yet steady voice came from the doorway.
Kaname rose gracefully up off her and glared darkly at the man who called his name. "Kiryu-kun." He said, though he was angry that he was interrupted, his voice was teasing.
Zero eyes narrowed at Kaname, he had never been so angry with him before. That bastard nearly took away Yuuki's first kiss, and in the corner in his mind…that solely belonged to him. "Get out." Zero ordered.
"You had no fucking right to come here into Yuuki's dorm and take advantage of her like this." Zero's voice was dark and yet Kaname didn't move. He was trying to push Zero off the edge, knowing what the outcome would be.
"She let me in Kiryu-kun…and I was only going to…"
"Shut up!" Zero shouted, feeling his whole body begin to tense. He growled low in his throat causing Kaname to smirk.
"Kaname-sempai…please." Yuuki softly said, getting up off the bed and gently grabbing hold of his arm. "Go." She didn't know exactly what was happening but she knew in her heart that Zero was in some sort of danger…and she couldn't take that.
He looked at her for a moment; his eyes slightly confused but he quickly regained his cool exterior. "Well, good-bye then…dear Yuuki." He touched her face softly one last time before leaving halfheartedly…not even bothering to look at Zero as he left.
Yuuki shook her head as soon as he was out of sight…she needed to clear all her hazed thoughts.
"I have to say," she said to herself more then to Zero. "My heart nearly stopped." She finally looked up into his eyes…was that worry she caught within them? She shook off the feeling. "I feel like I should thank you…"
"No, you don't." He said, his voice deep and smooth like none of it mattered at all. She nodded, finding herself slowly being taken in.
She shook her head, discovering he hazy thoughts had still yet to clear. She looked up into Zero's eyes maybe hoping for an answer…a way to make the world just a little clearer…
"You seem tired…" She said, taking notice of his eyes. She pushed back any of her old thoughts with her worry for Zero's well being. She walked closer towards him, reaching out but he turned away from her…knowing where she wished to take him.
"Are you okay?" he asked her, quickly trying to change the subject. He didn't dare look at her though…despite the feeling screaming in his heart. He didn't see her nod and he thought she was angry with him for sending Kaname away, he turned roughly towards her, startling her a bit but she smiled at him anyway.
"Yes, Kaname-sempai just surprised me is all…normally it's so rare to see him intimate with me…" She felt her face grow warm finding that Zero's eyes still had yet to leave her face…he was searching it…
"It was different from the other times though…I'm not sure why." Yuuki shrugged as she continued packing, going from one side of the room to the other with clothes in hand.
Zero nearly smirked at her comment. He was willing to bet Kuran felt threatened by HIM HAH! Good…was Zero's first thought, he should feel that way!
"I'm more used to your intimacy…I love that you feel okay to be open with me Zero…" She grinned and was greeted by Zero's surprised face.
"I am not intimate with you!" He told her back coldly…and immediately felt like retracting his words. Why was he always trying to push her the fuck away? What the hell was the matter with him?
She kept on smiling anyways. "I kind of had a feeling you'd say that." She shrugged her shoulders and let the feeling pass her by quickly. "Zero likes to hide how he feels…I get you, it's okay." She nodded but quickly frowned when she discovered that he had tuned her out completely.
That wouldn't do!
"ZERO!!! LISTEN TO MEEEEEEEE!!!!"
And still nothing…
"Well fine, then GET OUT you jerk!" And with a hard and incredibly strong push from Yuuki, Zero was out of the room with a door slammed in his face.
"That did it…" He said shaking his head and making his way back to his own room…he was worried though…with dash of hidden excitement.
Tomorrow was the train ride to the estate…and they'd be ALL alone...togetherAnd so summer begins…
