"Shiki, why are you in here?"

"Kaname wanted me to inform you that we're going to the dance."

"Yeah, I knew that. He told us in class, remember? Why are you telling me this?" I narrowed my eyes suspiciously. Okay, I knew that we had to go to the dance, but why was Shiki telling me this. And...why is he fidgeting? "Shiki...?"

"What?"

"What about the dance?"

"...Nevermind." And with that last statement Shiki left the room, leaving a confused Rima behind.

Going outside, Shiki sled down from the wall and sighed. "Why couldn't I just ask her?"

One Week Later (night)...

"Hey, Ruka."

"Yeah?"

"Does Shiki seem weird?"

"Not that I noticed. Why?"

"He's just been ignoring me."

"Lover's Quarrel."

"..."

"It happens from time to time."

"We're not together."

"Sure."

"We're not!"

Rima sighed. They weren't dating. She knew that. She wasn't even sure if she liked him or not. Well, she knew, but she didn't want to admit it. While Ruka blabbered on, Rima thought about Shiki. When did he start to ignore her?

"Okay, he started to ignore me a couple of days ago. But that day he went into my room, he did act weird."

Oblivious?

Brainless?

No, she was just clueless.

"Why?"

Poor, poor Rima. Sometimes she can be a little bit clueless when it comes to imporant things. Like, when her manager wants her to have amazing poses. Rima thought that whatever she did was perfect. But the manager wanted something special, stunning, attention-grabbing. So, it usually ends up that Rima is in crazy situations.

"And then he was like looking at me. And I'm like what?! And then he just got on one knee-- I was expecting he was going to propose to me, but he didn't--and he grabbed my hand and kissed it. I blushed. And he asked me to the dance."

"Maybe I should talk to him?"

"And--Rima?"

"Huh?"

"Were you even paying attention?"

"Yeah...about what?"

"That Kain asked me to the dance!"

"He what? Seriously?" Rima asked forgetting her problems. She always thought that Kain and Ruka looked cute together.

"Yeah! I know! I was totally shocked."

"I'm happy for you, Ruka."

"Did Shiki ask you, yet?"

"...Was he going to?" She asked. Maybe he told Kain, and Kain told Ruka.

"I don't know. I just thought he would ask."

"Oh."

Ruka and Rima were still talking when they entered the class. They sat in their usual seats. Rima sat down next to Shiki. She sighed and faced him.

"Shiki."

"Let me go first."

"Umm, okay--"

"Rima, that night when I was in your room."

"Yeah?"

"Well, I wanted to know if..."

"If?"

"If you'll go to the dance with me...?" Shiki blurted out quietly. He was acting so weird. So unlike Shiki. And, well, Rima exploded inside. She was practically screaming in her head.

"Yes..." She replied in a whisper. He gave her a small smile. As if on cue, Yaguri-sensei entered.

"Listen, you vampires. Just copy the notes from the board. No excuses. Now get going."

"How nice..."

The class started to take the notes. Well, some of them. Meaning: none of them. They just spaced out. And knowing that our favorite sensei was too lazy to check if they actually copied them or not he just sat in his seat, as usual. After taking his leave; everyone else did the same.

Rima was overly-excited. The dance was tonight. Her date was tonight. She was going to have fun, with her Shiki. No, not her Shiki. They didn't belong together. But he asked her, didn't he? So, what did she mean to him?

She didn't have time to think. She needed to get dress, right away. She went into her room and jumped on her bed. She growled a bit. She grabbed one of her blood tablets, and popped one in her mouth.

Bitter.

Disgusting.

"Ugh! Terrible."

She needed something sweeter, tastier.

"Shiki's blood..."

She instantly got up from her bed, and shook her head. She did not just think about his blood. No, she didn't. She sighed and got ready for the dance. She put on her favorite dress. It was a chetta B-white beaded chiffon halter dress. (A/N: Look up the dress if you want to get the idea of how she looks. It's suppose to be black, but I can only see Rima in white.) It fit her perfectly. She looked stunning. She let her hair down, and brushed it a couple of times. She looked at herself in the mirror and smiled. She was satisfied with the way she looked. She took a deep breath and left her room, waiting for Ruka to get outside. As soon as she did, Ruka gasped.

"Rima, you look stunning."

"Thanks. So do you. I bet you, Kain will love it."

"I hope so."

They went to the ballroom and stood apart from the other couples who were dancing. Kain arrived meaning that Ruka had left her alone, but not for long. Shiki arrived in his white uniform. He looked gorgeous to Rima; and to every other girl in the room. Most of them stared at him with big sparkly eyes. Shiki ignored them and smiled at Rima.

"Wow, Rima."

She frowned a bit. "That's all you can say?"

Shiki chuckled. He grabbed her hand and started to dance with her. "You know how I think of you."

"Not really..."

"You're absolutely beautiful. I'm glad you said yes."

"Me, too."

"Mmmm." Rima put her arms around his neck, staring at his face. He smiled, and leaned closer to hers'. She blushed a bit. Not even knowing, the song that was playing, became their song.

My love for you is so strong

You'll never believe that I'm wrong

You know we belong together...

My heart is growing for you

You'll never know it's true

Baby, I love you

Your face, your eyes, are all mine

I want you to be with me

I never want you to flee

I love you, forever and now

I want you, let's be together somehow

You're mine, and you're all I neeeeeeeed

to survive!

The two kept dancing till their hearts content. They were the stars tonight as everyone watched how they danced together. Rima smiled. Maybe her feelings for Shiki weren't disappearing.

But will something change her mind?


(Ruka x Kain Fluff...)

Kain walked over to Ruka. Well, she wasn't having as much fun as she thought she would, but she managed to smile. A little bit.

"Ruka, are you okay?"

"You know! When you asked me to the dance, I thought we would be dancing!" She said through gritted teeth. She thought this would be so romantic for them, but no. Kain would always be behind Aido. Maybe...just maybe, if Aido wasn't here, Kain would be with her instead. Ruka started planning an evil scheme called, "Aido's done!" A smirk appeared on her lips. She was going to have fun with this.

"Would you like to dance?"

"...Can you repeat that?"

Kain sighed. "Would you give me the honor to dance with you?"

A genuine smile appeard on her ruby, moist lips. Finally! How long did it take him? "I thought you'd never ask." Gently grabbing his hand, Kain put his arm around Ruka's waist, leading her to the dance floor. One of her arms was put on his back, and the other was currently holding his. His eyes were staring straight at hers. A smiled was formed on her face when he asked her to dance, and it never left. Kain twirled her, dipped her, they also spinned together in circles, yet it was elegantly.

"Are you enjoying yourself?"

"Very much. I was wondering when you would of asked me to dance."

"I'm not use to dancing with beautiful woman." Ruka laughed. But to Kain, her laugh was a melody. It chimmed through the ballroom. Ruka rested her head on is shoulder. Letting the beat of the song flow through her head.

"Why do you follow Aido around like a pet?"

"I don't follow Aido."

"Hmm, I think you're in love with him."

"You've got to be shitting me. Me in love with him? Hell no."

"Really?"

"Yeah, because I'm in love with you." Her face tured crimson. He said it so casually. Like if he said it to her everyday. Her grip on him was a bit tighter. Ruka was feeling incredible right now. Her heart pounded loudly. Her head was spinning. She felt like her body went limp, but it was okay because Kain was there to hold her up. She held on to him for her life. Because at that instant, she knew she couldn't live without him.

Her breath started to tickle his neck. Why did he just say 'Because I'm in love with you'? He could of told her in a better place. Instead he ended up saying it in a conversation with Aido in it. But at least he said it, right? He said it, and he was happy now. He had his girl in his arms. He spinned once more, following the beat of the music. It sounded like waltz to him, but then again, he didn't need to pay attention it. All he needed to pay attention to Ruka.

"Did I tell you that you look beautiful, tonight?"

"Ha! Don't I always." It was more of a statement then a question. That's Ruka, alright.


Ha! A cliff hanger. ;D Aren't I just rotten? Well, I had a spark of inspiration for Ruka and Kain. They are so cute together! :3 So a little section is there for all you Ruka/Kain lovers.

Th song is totally made up! xD I couldn't think of a song to put in there, so I made on up. Sue me! -shot- ;-;

Feels kind of rushed...again.

Review!! I demand them from you!
