Melt Into My Embrace

Zero punched the wall such force, his knuckles split, leaving their bloody imprint on the wall.

He had done it again. He was so stupid. He had made Yuuki upset for what seemed to be the millionth time.

"Dammit!" he cursed, leaning against the wall he had punch.

He was more of Yuuki's tormentor than protector most of the time.

Zero straightened and sighed. He would have to go find her and make her forgive him.

He loved her so much, but pushing her away was that only way could protect her from his thirst.

He went through the hallways, seeing if she was in any of the first floor classrooms.

Of course, she wasn't. This was Yuuki. She always made everything difficult.

As he ascended the stairs to the second floor, he heard sobbing. Quickening his pace, Zero searched the first few classrooms. She wasn't in those.

"I don't love him, and he doesn't love me," she whispered.

He stepped into the classroom, a soft look on his face. He couldn't stop himself from saying what he said next.

"Who ever said that was true, idiot?"

He knelt in front of her, brushing away tears and cupping her cheek.

When did I ever say that I didn't love you? Never."

When she opened her mouth to snap at him, Zero placed a finger over her soft lips.

"Shhh. Kurosu Yuuki, you are my life. I keep living because of you."

There. He had said it.

"But –," she began.

That wouldn't so. She wasn't allowed to protest.

"No," he said and kissed her deeply.

He was ecstatic when, instead of pulling away, she wrapped her arms around his neck to deepen the kiss even more. He pulled her close, letting his lover melt in his embrace.
