This is my first MoonPhase fan fic and I am basing this on the anime not the manga so if it were something that would not make sense in the manga please bare with me. I am going to introduce a character in this story who is very crucial to the story so there will be a lot of focus on him. I hope that you enjoy it very much. Please review because I love to hear what you think about the story.

Chapter 1

The door to The Marumi opened with a sigh as Kouhei walked through the door.

"Man that photo shoot took a lot longer than what I expected," Kouhei complained.

The thick-headed cameraman could barely believ that it had been nearly a year since they had all came back from their encounter with the vampires. Not much had changed Grandpa and Elfriede had continued their little love affair, Hazuki was still as stubborn as ever, and Art was still her silent self. It's hard to believe that it has almost been a year, Kouhei thought to himself.

"Kouhei what are doing just standing around here for," came the voice of Hazuki.

"Does it really matter," Kouhei snapped back.

"Don't talk back to me that way servant!"

"How many times do I have to say it to get it through your stubborn little head I am not a servant."

"What did you say?"

"I said what I've been saying for what seems like forever I am not your servant."

"You are very loud Luna," said a soft voice coming from the hall.

"Art," Hazuki said.

"Luna is too noisy," Art continued.

"You see Hazuki you've got other things to worry about besides me," Kouhei. Told Hazuki.

Art looked around already bored with the situation she headed back to her room so she could hopefully continue to sleep until her normal time without interruption.

"Kouhei could you and the young lady help me close up shop for the night," a voice came calling from just a few rooms away.

"I'll be right there Grandpa," Kouhei answered.

"I'll be there in a minute," Hazuki answered.

"Hurry up servant," Haji said as she came flying in.

"I'm not a servant," Kouhei nearly shouted.

"What is going on in there, so noisy," Ryhuu-san hollered.

"Nothing Grandpa," Kouhei answered.

After a couple hours worth of cleaning and tidying up the shop they sat down to a meal that was cooked by Elfriede.

"Wow Elfriede this is really good," Kouhei exclaimed.

"As I have said before I used to be human so I am used to having to prepate food," Elfriede answered.

"I know but everytime that I get a taste of your cooking it seems like it gets better every time," Kouhei said.

Hazuki looking for both what she would put on her plate next and something to talk about was quite surprised when she heard Art actually say something.

"This place is boring," Art said.

"What," Kouhei questioned.

"This place is boring," Art repeated.

"No it is not," Kouhei answered.

"Nothing ever happens here," Art said and then got up and left the table.

"I wonder what is going on with her," Hazuki said.

"That is something that you should really know," Kouhei told Hazuki.

"What do you mean," Hasuki asked.

"She is your sister after all so you should know," Kouhei answered.

"I don't need to hear that from you."

"It's the truth."

"Maybe I am not in a hurry to invade her privacy."

"That has nothing to do with it, you have barely spent any time with her."

"You're just a servant."

"No I am not."

"Now now that is enough for the night," Ryu-san told the arguing two.

"I've got an idea," Kouhei said.

"What is it," Hazuki asked.

"You'll see," Kouhei answered as he got up from the table.

Kouhei walked into the hallway until he came up to Art's room. He stood outside the door and knocked on it.

"I'm coming in," Kouhei said.

He walked through the door and just as he expected he found Art lying on her bed, the place where she spent most of her days.

"Art," Kouhei started.

"What," Art answered.

"Do you want to go for a little walk?"

"Why would I want to go on a walk."

"Well I just thought that you would like to do something else other than just lay down on your bed all day long. I thought that you would like to get up and get a little exercise, as well as getting to know your older sister better."

Art looked at Kouhei with a bit of interest wondering what he was really thinking.

"Sure."

"All right we will be leaving in a little bit."

Kouhei then walked out of the room and closed the door and went to find Hazuki to tell her to get ready for the walk. A few minutes later he was back at the door to Art's room and once again knocked on the door.

"We are going on the walk now so come on out of there," Kouhei called.

Soon he heard the door open and Art was standing there ready to go. Good thing that it is night time and not broad daylight otherwise she would have to wear that cat outfit, Kouhei thought to himself.

"Ready," Kouhei asked.

Art simply nodded her answer and before he knew it they were on their way. They walked to the park that Kouhei remembered taking Hazuki to when she first arrived at The Marumi. Kouhei looked at Aart hoping to see some sign of interest and some sign of conversation with Hazuki. All of a sudden they heard a voice.

"Hello Mistress Luna and Pincess Art," the voice said.

"Who are you," Kouhei asked.

"Do I really need an introduction," the vampire asked.

"You are a vampire aren't you," Kouhei asked.

"Yes, you must really be a thick headed perso if you couldn't tell."

"Hey!"

"Never mind. Mistress Luna and Princess Art are needee back at ath castle where they belong."

"We are not ging anywehere," Hazuki shouted.

"Then you leave me no choice but to take you y force," the vampire replied, "Prepare yourself."

Kouhei could se that the vampire was getting ready to cast some kind of spell. Before he could think of something to do the vampire unleashed the spell and sent a powerful wave of magic soaring straight at the three.
