Eight months later
"Stop it! I can't take it anymore...." Dante whimpered.
Takuya smirked. "Too bad. I'm celebrating, so don't ruin it for me."
Dante screamed as the blade sliced across his stomach. Blood gushed and began to pool around his feet in a growing puddle.
"Some day," Dante rasped. "I'll have my revenge."
"Don't count on it," Takuya replied nonchalantly. "Especially any time soon."
"Fuck you!" The demon hissed, spitting blood onto Takuya in the process.
The brunette simply wiped his face with the back of his hand, then continued to drag the knife from one end of Dante's chest to the other. Ten minutes later, he emerged from the chamber. His wiped his blade clean, then slipped it into his pocket.
"Better go check on the wife," he said to himself, smiling.
He made his way to his and Zoe's bedroom, ignoring everyone else as he went by. A moment later, he entered their room and walked over to the bed.
"Hey, how's it going?" Takuya sank down next to Zoe, gently stroking her cheek.
The blond smiled. "Better than ever."
Takuya took the small bundle from her arms and looked down. "My son..."
The baby resembled his father, with dark brown hair and olive skin. Two tiny bat-like wings protruded from his back, and flapped slightly every now and again. However, the baby had inherited his mother's piercing emerald eyes.
"I still don't know what we should name him," Takuya said. "I can't think of anything good."
Suddenly, the door burst open and Kouichi and J.P. rushed in.
"I have an idea," Kouichi excitedly told them.
Takuya raised an eyebrow incredulously. "Really?"
"Yeah, Kouichi Jr."
"You idiot, it's my child. Not yours," Takuya hissed. "That can be your kid's name."
Kouichi sighed. "Oh, alright."
"How about Bob?" J.P. suggested.
Zoe raised an eyebrow. "Bob? My baby is not going to be named Bob. Don't you have anything that's more suitable?"
"Takuya Jr?" Kouichi asked.
"No, I don't want him to be named after me. He's his own person, so why give him my name?" Takuya said, somewhat annoyed.
"Out!" Takuya and Zoe replied unanimously.
Kouichi held his hands up, giving up. "Alright, I'm going. Come on, fatass."
"Stop calling me fatass already," J.P. snapped.
The two of them exited the room and closed the door. Takuya felt the sleeping baby stir in his arms.
"Shhhh....." He whispered.
"He's so cute," Zoe said happily. "Looks just like his father."
Takuya snorted. "At least he got your eyes. By the way, have you seen Kouji anywhere?"
"Huh....wonder where he went," Takuya said, gently rocking the baby.
"I'll take another one," Kouji tiredly said.
The bartender poured the vodka into Kouji's empty shot glass, then resumed wiping the counter.
Kouji tossed his head back and emptied the small glass, looking at it somewhat depressed. Sure he was happy for Takuya and Zoe. Happy for their new infant son. Hell, he was even happy for Kouichi, who had managed to keep Jasmine's interest for so long. Right now Kouichi was devising a way for Jasmine to enter Hell. However, in order to do that, she would have to murder someone. And at this point, Jasmine was not about to go and do something like that.
"Another one," Kouji said in a hollow voice.
"I think you've had enough, kid," the bartender replied.
Kouji glared at him. "I'll tell you when I've had enough. Now pour it, dammit."
The bartender sighed, but obliged to his demand. He gave him one last dirty look before serving one of the other customers.
"Everyone's lives are so happy," Kouji muttered. "But not mine....There's something missing."
"Yes, I'd like a Zombie, please."
Kouji turned his head to see where the angelic voice had come from. To his surprise, he recognized the gorgeous woman immediately. He remembered the same same sleek white hair and glimmering onyx eyes that had made his heart quicken when he first met her. This time, however, she wore no scarf to conceal the lower half of her face. Soft rosy lips teased him as she spoke to the bartender for another moment.
"Seraphina," he rasped. "What are you doing here? Better yet, what are you doing drinking alcohol."
"Hello, Kouji." She smiled and took the stool beside him. "What? I don't deserve to get away every once in awhile?"
Kouji shook his head. "No, I didn't mean it like that. I'm just shocked to see you here."
"Yeah, well. Here I am. I needed to get away and get myself a drink," she replied, taking her Zombie from the bartender. "Why so sad?"
"Nah, it's fine. You don't want to hear my problems," he said.
Seraphina took a sip. "Of course I do. If I didn't then I wouldn't have asked. So come on, you can tell me."
"It's just that everyone else is happy. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that they are. But when it comes to me....."
"Something's missing from your life," she finished for him.
"Yeah, pretty much," Kouji said. "I don't normally talk about my feelings, not even to my friends. But for some reason you're.....hell, I don't know."
"Different, perhaps?" She offered, shifting her body to face him better.
Kouji blushed when he saw the thin white dress covering her tighten while she moved. He dropped his gaze down to the counter, then quickly gulped down his shot. Dammit, focus. Don't let her get to you.
"I'm surprised you even want to talk to me," he said.
Seraphina gave him a light tap on the arm. "Hey, I don't want you to think that I'm better than you just because of who I am. Besides, did you ever imagine Takuya ending up with someone like Zoe? Someone who no one ever saw coming?"
"No, I guess not," Kouji admitted. "He treats her like an equal, despite the fact of who he is."
"Which is the way I am, too." Seraphina took another sip. "You need to relax."
Kouji groaned. "I can't, though. It's impossible, and with an annoying twin brother, it's even more of a pain."
She chuckled. "You're cute."
"Uh....y-you think that...I-I..." Kouji couldn't get the words out as he turned bright red.
"I am capable of emotions, you know," she said. "I think you're cute. Is there a problem?"
"Uh....no none at all," he nervously replied. "You're really different than the old guy, aren't you?"
She smirked. "I get that quite a bit. It's actually pretty amusing to me. I think people expect me to be this over-bearing power-hungry tyrant. What do you think?"
Kouji blinked a few times, then finally regained his composure. "Well, you're more laid-back then I would've expected."
"That's good to know," she replied, taking another sip.
"Can I buy you a drink?"
"Well, when I'm finished with this one you can," she replied.
"Oh, hold on." Kouji took her drink and gulped it down in two mouthfuls. "Another Zombie, please."
Seraphina rolled her eyes, but smiled. "Eager much?"
"Nowadays, yes." He gingerly reached out and brushed a strand of hair out of her face, but immediately pulled back. "Shit, I'm sorry Seraphina. I-"
He was cut off as Seraphina leaned forward and pressed her lips against his. Kouji was taken back, but did nothing to stop her and began to respond with his own kiss.
"Don't be," she said, pulling back. "And you can call me Sera."
"Uhhhhh......okay...." Kouji looked dazed.
Seraphina laughed softly, taking a sip from her new drink. Well, let's see how long he'll be miserable, she thought to herself. By the look on his face, he wasn't going to be depressed for much longer.
Back in Hell
"Elroy?" Kouichi suggested.
Takuya glared at him. "I should kill you for that."
"Brutus?" J.P. offered.
"No," Zoe said.
"Lillith?" Kouichi asked.
Takuya sighed. "Maybe if he was a girl."
"Oh, yeah. My bad," Kouichi apologized.
"Hey, I know," Takuya said. "How about Damian?"
Kouichi raised an eyebrow. "Isn't that the name of the creepy kid from The Omen? You know, that horror movie."
"Yes, I realize that," Takuya replied, annoyed. "But I like the name, I'm not just basing it off of a damn movie character."
"Damian," Zoe said softly. "I like it. I think it suits him pretty well."
J.P. snorted. "Good thing he didn't come out blond, or else it probably wouldn't. No offense, Zoe."
"None taken," she replied dryly.
"Alright, now that the name is settled, get out," Takuya growled.
"Damn, we're going. Don't get your panties in a twist," Kouichi muttered.
Takuya's eyes darkened. "Why you little-"
"Run!" J.P. shoved Kouichi out the door and slammed it shut behind them.
"Idiots," Takuya mumbled, sitting back down on the bed beside his wife.
Zoe snuggled up against him as Damian stirred. "I love you."
"I love you, too," he happily replied.
"Now, you're not going to be a drill sergeant to him like your father was to you, right?" Zoe quipped.
Takuya sighed. "No, I'm never going to be like him. And if I do, then kill me."
"I know that'll never happen. And if it does, I'll send Damian to do it for me," she joked.
"Yeah, true. When I teach him the art of torturing, he can practice on Dante," he said.
"Best way to practice," Zoe agreed.
Takuya laughed. "Yeah, on an obnoxious asshole."
Suddenly Damian's emerald eyes opened. He blinked a few times, then smiled up at his parents.
"Awww, he's so cute," Zoe said.
Damian then turned his head to the side, away from them.
"I don't think he likes us," Takuya said with a smirk.
Just then, Damian let out a loud sneeze, a burst of black flames shooting out of his mouth.
"Oh, shit!" They said in unision.
Damian looked back up at them and resumed smiling.
"Yep, that's our kid alright," Takuya laughed. "Any idiot can see that."
"You called?" Kouichi and J.P. asked, poking their heads into the room.
Takuya exchanged glances with Zoe, wrapping his arm around her. "I rest my case."
yay, im finally done with it. so kouji's not a lonely emo anymore (well yeah he is) but now he has someone. and maybe it was kinda rushed, but hey whatever. they like each other and not everyone takes weeks to get used to each other. at least i didnt make them immediately hop into bed together. and yeah, i named the baby damian. if you no likey, then sorry. couldnt think of a good baby name so i said screw it and did damian. besides, damian is the name of satan's son anyway, so whatever. and i fused takuya'a fire ability and zoe's dark light abilities to make damian have black fire ^_^. now Falling from Grace will be my primary story (the next chapter comes out tomorrow). but i have some other ideas for future stories (that is, if i dont get committed into a looney bin by then)
1. 20 Stupid Horror Movie Cliches- i was watching a bunch of horror movies the other day and i just said to myself 'damn, these movies are all the same. the same stupid things happen in all of them'. so on that note, im doing a parody of stupid things that happen in a horror movie, or in other words, stupid overdone cliches. it is my first actual comedy, so i cant guarantee it'll be good. but i'll give it a shot. not an actual takumi story, but obviously with takuminess throughout it
2. Lost Paradise- a story about takuya and his friends winning a trip to an exclusive island. but then they start getting killed off and have to find a way out. character deaths, so beware. this one won't be out until falling from grace is done, because i need more time to get the plot together. takumi of course
3. Untitled (for now)-the last one im doing, which will begin when the others are done, is a sequel to bloodbath. i have a basic idea of what im doing, but ill need some time for the character development, as there will be new characters coming into play. and i have to get a better idea of the plot. since bloodbath was based on the elfin lied series, i had something to work with. but the series ended where bloodbath ended. so on that note, im coming up with my very own story line and have to make sure things are put into play well enough. probably wont be as good, but i dont think it'll suck either.
i hope you enjoyed Worlds Collide and stay tuned for my future stories. ^_^ well, laterz
