'Nut': Okay, so I got one of my friends into VK and we started wondering what it would be like if Yuuki had grown up as a vampire. We know it's been done a million times before, but, we swear, this one will be totally different! My friend helps with ideas and she helped me write the prologue! Ain't that good teamwork? Well... I'll be writing it with her helping with ideas after this.

Today is the day I finally get to reveal what I want for Yuuki, thought Juuri, snuggling the baby Yuuki close. Juuri wanted Yuuki forever in her arms, to protect her against anything. She'd do that until the end if she had to.

Her thoughts were interrupted by someone at the door. She hurried to the white steel door and opened it.

"Welcome old friend." She greeted, motioning him in.

"Is that her?" Juuri could hear the excitement in his voice.

"No, it's Kaname." She teased, leading them to their living room. Kaname sat on the white, suede couch, staring blankly out the window into the blizzard. She put her hand on his shoulder and he turned.

"You remember Uncle Kaien?"

"You mean Kaien Cross?" Kaname asked blankly. Juuri ignored him.

"Please, sit down, may I get you something?" She offered, he shook his head and looked around, "Haruka!" She called. Soon he was at her side, pecking her cheek. He sat next to Kaien Cross, nodding at him.

"So what's been happening with you?" Cross asked.

"I had Yuuki." She smiled softly, nuzzling her nose with the now asleep Yuuki, "She's the reason I called you here." All of them turned their heads toward her. She had their full attention, "I need to ask you a favor Kaien." And she glanced at her husband, eyeing him. All he could do was nod.

"I'll do anything." The Chairman promised, noticing the serious air around him. He could tell something wasn't right.

"Will you be Yuuki's godfather?" She asked as the words burned in her mouth.

"Of course, is there an urgency to this?"

Everyone twitched and became tense, even young Kaname.

"Yes." Her eyes burned. She felt as if she might collapse. Haruka rushed to her side, supporting her, "I want you to do something for me when you have her."

"Everything-" Cross started, but didn't finish.

"Promise me something!" She pleaded.


"Promise!" She begged.

"Anything." He promised gravely.

"I want you to treat her as if you were me." She looked away, tears forming in her light brown eyes, "I want to raise her, Yuuki, as a normal, human girl! Just to help her break away from the fate of a pureblood... and smile happily." Juuri nuzzled Yuuki as tears fell down her cheeks.
