Note: Inspiration – Vampire Knight DS Game – Shiki Senri's Part


60) Ichijou-san

Shiki instinctively knew something was wrong. There was no change in Rima's expression or body language, but he could feel something was off.

"What's wrong?"

"You went out and bought a present for Ichijou-san."

"Yes, the statue." Shiki nodded. "It's called the Thinking Cat."

There was silence.

"Are you upset?" He asked again, a puzzled expression on his face.

"I'm not upset."

"...it doesn't seem that way." Shiki stated. "Will you tell me?"

"You went out and bought a present for Ichijou-san." She repeated again, this time accusingly.

"...Did you want a cat too?" He asked, tilting his head to the side slightly. She glared at him with those brilliant sapphire eyes. Rima sighed, obviously Shiki didn't understand.

"Shiki...do you like Ichijou-san more than me?" The question was asked hesitantly.

"Eh?"

"It doesn't matter." Rima muttered, unsure if she wanted to hear the answer.

"I like Ichijou-san in a way different from the way I like you, Rima." The brunette answered, still quite confused at the question.

"I should hope so." Came the terse reply.

"I respect Kaname-sama, I admire Ichijou-san and I adore you. Is that a problem?"

"No." Rima said, breaking out into a smile at his response. He blinked, surprised at her sudden change but grateful she wasn't unhappy anymore.

"Rima?"

"Hm?"

"Why were you upset?" Shiki asked a while later. Rima smiled slightly to herself.

"Next time when you go out, buy me a present too."

Eh?


Rima's jealous :) I think this will be the second last one to the series. Maybe I'll start something else afterwards! Thank you to all those that's read this and reviewed!
