Author's Note: I don't know where I came up with this. I don't expect it to be liked. But I'm going to do it. If you read it, please review it. I beg of you.
How did I get into this situation? Lelouch mused in the wreckage of the terrorist's vehicle below Shinjuku ghetto. Well no sense sticking around. I need to find a way out of here. The exiled prince stood up and started off, when he was hit in the head by a flying spin kick.
"In the name of his highness Charles Di Britannia you are under arrest terrorist!" The soldier said, pinning down Lelouch.
"Who are you calling a terrorist?" Lelouch said while attempting (and failing) to get the soldier off of him by force.
"Lelouch?" The soldier stood up and removed his helmet.
"Suzaku? Why are you in the military?"
"And why are you helping-"
"I'm not; I just got dragged into it while trying to be a good citizen."
"Please, you're too cynical for that sort of thing."
"Well I won't be doing it anytime soon." Lelouch started to say, but was interrupted by the capsule starting to activate and Suzaku tackling him to stop him from breathing in gas. When the capsule opened however, a heavily restrained girl was inside, not poison gas. Lelouch freed himself from his friends grasp. "That's not poison gas. Were you told anything about this Suzaku?"
"No, they just told us that terrorists had stolen some experimental chemical weapons and were planning an attack on the Tokyo settlement."
"Great. Some secret military test subject then."
"So it would seem. Let's get her out of here at least."
"And we should do that because?"
"Because it's the right thing of course." Suzaku said.
"Right, I would hate to have a sane reason for doing something."
"Like I said, too cynical to be a good citizen." Suzaku said, grabbing her by the legs.
"I'd rather be cynical than so idealistic I can be called suicidal." Lelouch said, grabbing the other end. The two lifted her out of the truck and set her down outside, where Suzaku undid her restraints. They were then interrupted by the Royal Guard.
"Well, well, a mere Eleven dares poke his nose into military secrets eh Private Kururugi?" The leader of the group said. "Well I suppose we could let you off given your impressive combat record. But you do need to shoot that student over there. He's seen too much to live."
"You want me to shoot a civilian?" Suzaku said, stunned. Lelouch was running through scenarios in his head, trying to figure out how to escape. He noticed the girl was conscious now.
"Did I stutter soldier?" The guardsmen inquired.
"…I'm sorry sir I can't shoot a civilian, much less my best friend." Suzaku stated firmly.
"Then die." The man promptly shot him. "Now student, I think it's time for you to join your eleven friend." He turned his gun on Lelouch. And that's when Nagata blew up the truck. The tunnel collapsed, and the rubble separated the royal guardsmen from Lelouch and the girl. The two ran off down a side tunnel.
"It's because of you right?" Lelouch said to the girl, sitting down somewhere down the tunnel path. "You're some pet project of Clovis' and he doesn't want word of you getting out. That's why they killed Suzaku and created the poison gas story."
"…Yes." The girl responded.
"I see. Any chance of you telling me what you are exactly?"
"…There's a good chance I suppose. But I'm not telling you at this moment."
"…Annoying woman. Let's just get out of here." Lelouch stood up and continued down the passage to the stairs, followed by the girl.
"There's no sign of them here captain." A voice above said, causing both to stop.
"Fine, let's check the next building." Another, belonging to the leader of Clovis' guardsmen said. They were about to leave when Lelouch's phone rang. The student silenced it, but not fast enough. A moment later the girl was being held by two guardsmen and he was thrown against the wall. "I must commend you boy, you've done quite well for a student. But that makes sense; after all, you are a Britannian. But it ends here." The man raised his gun and tried to shoot Lelouch. The woman escape her captors and jumped in the line of fire.
"He mustn't die!" She screamed before the bullet hit her forehead. She promptly collapsed to the ground. Lelouch was stunned by this action.
"How unfortunate. We were told to bring the girl back alive, but I suppose we'll have to just tell Prince Clovis and General Bartley that the terrorists had already finished them off.
Again. I failed to protect someone again. Mother, Nunally, Suzaku, even this girl. I can't- The girl's hand suddenly grabbed his own, and various images flashed through his head. The girl's voice rang out through it.
You don't want it to end like this do you? Young one…You seem to have a reason you need to continue to live…. This is the contract, I'll give you power. In return, you must grant my one wish. Once the contract is created, you will have a different fate, a different time, and a different life. The power I give you will separate you from humanity. Can you take this power, and still not go mad?
...Fine, I'll take your contract. Now witch, grant me this power of yours! The visions stopped, and he stood up and started laughing, but kept his eyes closed
"What's wrong boy? Has your imminent death driven you mad?" The captain asked.
"What about you? Why don't you fire? I'm just a student, it would be easy. Or have you realized, that the only ones who should kill, are those who are prepared to be killed?"
"What are you talking about boy?"
"So you can't even understand such a simple concept…" Lelouch opened his eyes. "Lelouch Vi Britannia commands you, DIE!"
"Wha-"The commander started to say. Then he and the rest of the men got insane grins on their face and raised their guns to their head. "YES MY LORD!" They said in unison before shooting themselves in the head.
Lelouch stood over their corpses, silently. As the girl behind him stood up, a crazed grin formed on his face. "This power you gave me… it's excellent. With this I can certainly have my revenge."
"What you just used is your unique ability. Each Knight class has one."
"Knight class?" The boy said, turning around to face her.
"Knights are the middle of the three vampire classes."
"Vampires?" He laughed. "So you become a vampire by making deals with strange women? That's far less dramatic than neck biting."
"Only knights are made through contracts. Pawns are created when a knight bites a human."
"…Queen class, though there's also a king class, the only difference is gender. I don't feel like explaining that at the moment. But I suppose I should tell you about the other two. I can't have you thinking you're immortal and getting gunned down by a knightmare."
"I'd normally be offended by that remark, but I can't pretend to be an expert on vampires so go ahead."
"Only King and Queen class vampires can create knights. Each knight has a unique ability called Geass. All that human nonsense about the sun and garlic isn't true. Knight class vampires are just as mortal as humans, except their lifespan can go up to about 300 years and you can't become ill, though neither can the other two classes. Knights are also the only ones that need blood. About once a week from what I recall, though I think blood transfusions also work. Feeding either creates a Pawn class or kills the human, depending on if they are killed in the 30 seconds it takes for them to transform into a Pawn. No class sleeps or needs to eat or drink aside from the Knights needing blood. Pawns live as long as their creator Knight, no more, no less. They are subject to their creators whims and will do whatever they must to please him or her. All three classes have wings they can sprout or hide at will. Pawns have superhuman speed and power. Knights have their Geass and wings, but can't exceed human levels of physical power."
"And let me guess, Kings and Queens are immortal but have neither Geass nor superhuman abilities?"
"...Smart boy. We can create Knights, have wings, and are immortal, but that's it."
"I suppose you can't control your Knights either?" Lelouch asked.
"…No, we can't."
"What's your name woman?" Lelouch said as he prepared to leave the abandoned warehouse.
"C.C." She said simply.
"That's not a-" Lelouch was interrupted as a Knightmare entered.
"What are you two Britannian kids doing here, and why are the royal guardsmen dead?" A voice shouted on the frame's intercom. "Answer!" The pilot fired some warning shots over their head.
"My name is Reyson Serenes, this is my sister Leanne. We're the children of a duke. I've got my ID in my breast pocket." Lelouch said calmly. A woman exited the frame, and kept a handgun trained on Lelouch. She was about to say something, but the boy cut her off. "Hand over your Knightmare." He ordered.
"Yes." She held out the key and told him the unit number and password.
"Very good." He got on the foot elevator. "I suppose I'll take C.C as an answer for now. Anyway can you escape on your own?" He asked, as she walked towards the door.
"Yes, if I keep to the back alleys I should be able to get to a point where I can fly off without being spotted. You can do the same you know."
"Of course, but Clovis is probably around looking for you. That's an opportunity I can't waste." He activated the foot elevator. "Perhaps we'll meet again another time." He entered the knightmare and speed off. C.C. just walked off. Villeta Nu snapped out of her Geass induced trance a few moments after they left, with no idea as to what just happened.
Author's Note: Well that's the first chapter of my AU fic. It's bad I know, but I felt like I had to write it. C.C. was quite talkative here, but it's for the sake of exposition. And I do intend to make this a harem fic. Please review.
