Important: Someone thought it would be fun to steal some of my writing in this story. Because of that issue, and to avoid having this story deleted for the explicit content, I've had to edit His Eyes of all its m-rated content. I do not recommend for anyone to read this story as it is. It's choppy and, well, to be honest, I feel as though I have ripped the heart out of it. THIS STORY IS NO LONGER ON ANY OTHER SITE AND SHOULDN'T BE. If you see it on another site, it is stolen. I have kept this fic up for only two reasons; one of them being the amount of love some of you have for it. If not for that, I may have already deleted this.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Kaname Kuran, a pureblood vampire whose lineage was inimitable, having inherited the powers of the ancient vampires, reigned at Cross Academy as the President of the Night class and the Moon dormitory. He was revered by the vampires of the Night class who gathered solely to be graced by his presence. He garnered respect from all students, both in the day and night classes, even the Headmaster of the academy showed him homage. But there was one...
One person who continued to disrespect and spit upon the floor that Kaname walked upon. He has an audacity that begs for death at the hands of those vampires who strongly worship Kaname-sama. And yet, fearless or thickheaded, he continues to show his impudence. To Kaname, Zero Kiryu was a diversion, a pastime. Someone who caught his interest. Though Kaname had, on several occasions, stared him down, Zero Kiryu showed little fear and had equally returned the favor, his eyes flaring with his overwhelming distrust of vampires. Kaname, as much as he'd hate to compliment a vampire hunter, had to admit that he respected Zero's boldness and his tenacity; his strength of will in resisting the powerful vampire instincts for four years.
Kaname glanced up at Takuma Ichijou silently, his chin resting on the back of his hand, a beautiful fountain pen held forgotten between his slender fingers. His mind had wandered off again in the middle of his paper work. It was happening quite frequently.
"Kaname," Ichijou began, moving away from the window in Kaname's study. "Is there something bothering you?"
Kaname's auburn eyes lowered back to the persistent paperwork the senate continued pushing onto him; he didn't respond. Ichijou wasn't surprised. If Kaname had actually told him what was on his mind, then he'd be a little startled. He grinned brightly. "Maybe you should take a break? You work so hard and you hardly rest."
"I have to finish writing these reports." Though he honestly didn't understand how he could possibly do so. Kaname couldn't focus. Not when that face, with those fearless eyes, bore into his head.
"I don't see how," Ichijou mumbled glancing down at the paper in front of Kaname where his pen had left behind an incriminating ink blot, proof of Kaname's inability to concentrate on his work. "You've been working on this report for hours, but you haven't written anything."
Kaname's eyes narrowed slightly. Ichijou laughed nervously. "Whatever you're musing about must be important. You should take a walk to clear your head. Or, if you want, I can lend you one of my manga!" Ichijo beamed enthusiastically, his mind racing with titles that would interest his friend. "They're great for getting your mind off of things. Perhaps you'd enjoy some shonen? Then again, maybe something more like shojo? They're quite romantic! Oh! I got it! Yaoi!"
"Hm?" Ichijou blinked as he realized, during his spouting, Kaname had taken the opportunity to disappear and leave him completely alone in the study. He smiled quietly. He had no doubt that after his walk, Kaname would feel better. "Ah..." Stretching, Ichijou left the study, heading towards Hanabusa's room. There was a new manga he wanted him to read.
Filthy vampires! Zero groaned as he leaned against the wall in the alley where he had last seen the Level E vampire whom he'd been ordered to slain. He had been warned that there were two, but he hadn't expected them to be so strong. He grabbed his left arm, wincing as his elbow screamed pain up his shoulder. There was anger in his eyes as he glanced around the alley, making sure there was no chance of being taken by surprise again. Without a doubt, he knew he had killed the first one, the one who devoured the little girl seconds before he could stop him. He'd shot him in the head as the two ran off after they'd attacked him from behind. As for the other one …
Zero blinked as he caught sight of blood just outside a door way, it led straight into the bell tower. His eyes narrowed as he straightened himself away from the wall. He knew he was being baited but Zero had always thought it was a waste of time not to take it. After all, the vampire was being kind enough to save him the trouble of looking for him. Without hesitation, Zero was inside, taking the stairs that led up to the bell tower where the shuffling sounds of the beast echoed down the staircase.
At the wooden door, Zero readied his Bloody Rose in hand and pushed the door open slowly. He knew the other vampire was injured so it was hardly a surprise to see the once human beast sitting against the wall, his chest heaving heavily with his final breaths. With blood flowing down the side of his head, the Level E stared at Zero, his eyes half-opened. "Have you... come to finish me off?"
He knew by now to just shoot. The silver shone as he raised the weapon in his hand, his finger began to squeeze the trigger. There was nothing left of him, he was just a beast. A beast who killed for blood. No mercy could be spared for monsters like these... monsters like him. Zero's eyes narrowed. The beast before him, his eyes slowly fading, was dying. "I have...to purge you of your sins."
"Yes..." The vampire shut his eyes, a small, resigned smile on his lips. "Then maybe it can finally be over."
Zero flinched from those words. The level E lurched, Zero jumped back, completely taken off guard as the beast drew his fangs and attacked. His bloody rose was knocked out of his hand as he lost his balance, succumbing to the demons weight. The vampire hunter's neck slammed against the opening in the ground under the large golden bell. Had it not been for the vampire who was straddling him threatening to devour him, he would have fallen through. "Foolish boy, I'll make you my meal!"
Blood exploded in the air, covering him with the vile red liquid that painted the large bell in the center of the room and as the vampire disintegrated into thin air his weight was heaved off of Zero.
"You should be more careful, Kiryu Zero."
That voice! Zero stood up, glancing towards the small balcony outside the bell tower. To his horror, there he stood: Kaname Kuran. That contemptible pureblood. "What the hell are you doing here, Kuran?" he demanded, sparing any gratitude.
"Saving your life apparently," replied Kaname, seizing to be amazed at how impudent the vampire hunter was. It irritated him.
The bloody rose beckoned for Zero and he lifted it from the floor, dismissing Kaname as he slipped it back inside it's holster. "I didn't need your help."
Kaname's fist bawled as he watched Zero walk away. However, when he spoke, his voice remained calm. "You were hesitating. Did you sympathize with it... because you're the same?"
In a blur of movements, Zero whirled around and fired an unhesitating silver bullet that would have hit it's mark had Kaname not vanished from his spot to slam Zero against the wall. With his hand around Zero's throat and his other griping Zero's wrist, making sure he didn't get the chance to fire at him again, Kaname's eyes narrowed dangerously. "I admire you're audacity. Subsequently, had you actually shot me, you would be hunted down and killed mercilessly."
There was no answer to his threat. Nothing but those damned eyes that pierce into him, glaring spitefully, boldly declaring that Zero would shoot without hesitation if Kaname just slackened his hold on his wrist. "Why is it..." Kaname whispered starring intently at Zero as though his answer could be found on his face. "That I can't get you off my mind?"
What...? Zero blinked, wondering what the hell he meant by that. The hand around his throat loosened only to grab hold of his jaw. Kaname lowered his face slowly towards his before his intentions were made clear to Zero, but it didn't matter, his lips were already locking to the stunned vampire hunter's. It was a gentle kiss, soft lips over pliant ones, and it was over quickly. Though, even as Kuran backed away, Zero couldn't comprehend what had just happened.
"What? No death threats?" Kaname teased without real humor as he watched those clear eyes for once stare at him without that anger- no, the hatred- that boiled within them. "If that's the case, then perhaps you enjoyed it?"
That thought seemed to snap Zero back to his senses as he tried to free his wrist, which Kaname wasn't allowing. "What are you trying to do?" he demanded, attempting to pull Kaname's hand away from his face. Panic was setting in.
"What am I doing?" Kaname asked, wondering about it himself. He lowered his eyes to Zero's lips once again, recalling the sensation of their lips pressing against each other. "I'm getting an answer."
Zero struggled against the kiss, doing what he could to shove Kaname away, but the damned pureblood was too powerful for him to move. He felt Kaname's lips moving against his, trying to pry open his lips, but Zero stubbornly kept them locked tightly. What the hell was that bastard doing? Had he lost his mind?
"Why do you always defy me?" Kaname whispered pulling back enough to grab Zero's annoying hand and pin it against the wall. When Kaname saw the murderous intent in Zero's eyes he decided it would be better not to give the brat a chance to harm him, so in a fluid motion he yanked the weapon from Zero's grasp, ripping the chain attached to it, and tossed it far from reach.
"I despise everything you are. I will never do what you want, I swear I'll kill all of you vampires!" Zero declared, glowering with disgust.
Kaname simply stared at him for a moment before smiling. "There's the death threats. Unfortunately for you, they don't frighten me. But I am curious about something..." Kaname lifted Zero's hands over his head to lock them both with only one of his hands. "It took you four years to finally capitulate to the desires of vampires, but how long will it take for you to surrender to your human desires?"
"What?" Zero's eyes shot open as Kaname's hand pulled loose his belt and swiftly undid the button on his slacks. "No, stop it! What the hell are you-"
"Shut up." Kaname pressed his hand against Zero, intent on discovering whether or not this was the reason why Kaname continued thinking about the impudent fool. He began to tease Zero as he struggled effortlessly, cussing and threatening Kaname the entire time. But it was futile. His rebellion was enforcing Kaname's will to continue with Zero's punishment. "I give you too much lenience as it is."
"Bastard!" Zero gasped. "Let go!"
I absolutely hate it…
Kaname chuckled as he captured Zero's mouth, seizing the opportunity of slipping his tongue into his mouth. He was enjoying the strangled noises emitting from the reluctant hunter as he ran his tongue over his, sweeping over the side of his cheek and the roof of his mouth. Before he knew it, Kaname was nibbling Zero's lower lip, his fangs teasing their wet surface while his tongue traced over those furious lips with dark pleasure. He had lost himself again.
...how I fell in love with the eyes of a vampire hunter...
