[A/N] Hey guys! This is my first time writing a story so please be gentle with the reviews! Criticism is welcomed, but no insults please. If the feedbacks are good, I'll continue updating. Rated M for a reason.
Summary : The most painful thing that anyone can experience is watching the one you love, cherish, adore in another man's hands. I watched her as she embraced another man. I was slowly dying inside, but this was for the best. I turned and walked away, leaving her to find her happiness, hoping that she'd forgive me for the pain I caused her. She's not supposed to know that I was here. I, Aono Tsukune, was supposed to be dead. And I intend to stay that way.
I opened my eyes and instantly regret it. The sunlight was blaring in my face. I groaned. Its my fault that I left the blinds open last night and not close it back. I slid out of bed and looked out of the window. Same view same weather. Always bright. But its normal for this place. How long have I been here? How many years of my life have I lost? I lost count. I heard knocking on the door.
"Its open", I said loudly.
A doctor came in. Her name is Chuugo Hatsumi. She's one of the doctors that live here. For some weird reason, she checks up on me every day since I was shipped to this unknown place.
"Morning Tsukune. Already in a bad mood?" she teased. I rolled my eyes. I'm not in the mood for this.
"What do you want, doctor ?" I asked in a annoyed tone. She shakes her head. I know she hates it when I called her that, and I didn't care. I don't want to be familiar with anyone here.
"I just came to inform you that we'll be running a few….experiments. They expect you to be in the lab within 15 minutes" she said. I gave out a quiet sigh.
"I'll be there. Anything else? " I asked when I noticed she made no move to leave.
"Oh nothing. Sorry." She said. I noticed her blushing. She quickly closed the door, leaving me to attend my morning business. I looked out of the window again…remembering what happened and how I ended up here…
"Good morning Tsukune!" was the first thing I heard. I looked up to see a pink hair beauty waiting for me. I smiled.
"Morning, Moka-san" I greeted her. She flashed her most brilliant smile, which took my breath away. If I were to die, I'd die a happy man. I noticed her looking at me shyly. I lifted my eyebrow in question.
"Tsukune, I forgot having breakfast this morning, and I'm reallyyy hungry right now…so can I have a bit of your blood pleaseeeee?" She said, giving me her best puppy – eyed look, which I had to admit, I couldn't resist.
"Sure Moka-san. But I'd appreciate it if you don't forget your breakfast every morning" I said rolling my eyes as she unbuttoned my first button and pushed my collar aside, to reveal my neck.
"Well, I can't help it since your blood is so addicting" she said with a cute pout. I laughed and winced in pain when she bit her fangs into her fangs. I was starting to get dizzy by the time she was done.
"Thanks for the breakfast Tsukune!" she said smiling bright.
"No problem" I muttered fixing my collar and my button. I hoped she didn't get any blood on my collar. We continued walking until we reached the entrance gate of our school. And sure enough, Kurumu came pounding into me, hugging my head into her overly sized breast, and suffocating me at the same time.
"C-can't breath!" I yelled while trying to get her off of me. Geez, it's a wonder that I can survive this almost every morning. And sure enough, Mizore showed up from no where and threw and ice dart which hit Kurumu's head. Right on the mark.
"Let go Kurumu. I won't let you get close with my Tsukune" she said, stepping out from the bushes. "Oh and good morning, Moka, Tsukune" she greeted quietly
"Good morning Mizore" both me and Moka replied at the same time.
"Mizore…how DARE you hinder both me and Tsukune" she said, growing her claws out. Oh boy, this is going to get ugly.
"I'll show you, boob women, and everyone else, the bond that me and Tsukune have for each other" Mizore said, while growing some ice claws.
"Tsukune-san, its amazing how you can survive this every morning" Yukari said, as she approached me from behind. I noticed Ruby was with her.
"Good morning, Yukari, Ruby" I greeted. They greeted in response.
The four of us decided to leave the succubus and the yuki onna to their duel. Yukari is right, it is amazing that I can survive this every morning. We talked for a bit before Ruby excused herself, saying that she has some work to do for the chairman, leaving me, Moka and Yukari to walk to our classes.
"So Tsukune-san, now that the Fairy Tail business is done, what are you and Moka-san planning?" Yukari asked as we entered our class and took our seats.
"I'm not sure Yukari. Since its our final year in high school, I really want to cherish the remaining time that we have. And definitely avoid any sort of battle during that time too" I said. Which is true. I'm really getting sick and tired of fighting. I don't get why everyone can't get along. But then again, this is Youkai Academy we're talking about, and I don't think such thing will happen for a long time…..
"I agree with Tsukune. Hey, since we have the holidays coming up, why don't we go for a trip? It's been awhile since the whole Fairy Tail incident…" Moka said trailing off. Hmmm, a trip. Why not?
"That'll be a great idea desu!" Yukari squeaked happily. Just then, Kurumu and Mizore entered the class at the same time.
"What's this? I heard something about a holiday! Are you going to leave me here Tsukune?" Kurumu said as she clinged on to me.
"Of course not Kurumu-san. We were about to tell you" I chuckled. Although, I would definitely appreciate the time alone with Moka…
"I'll be keeping an eye on you boob women, and I'll make sure you don't get close to my Tsukune" Mizore said. I rolled my eyes. They started arguing again. I'm gonna miss this once I graduate….
It was all going normally when I suddenly felt a strong demonic aura, with an intense killing intent. That youki was all to familiar. I tried placing my finger on who might it be when a name flashed in my head. Suddenly, the wall of my classroom exploded, and a monster walked in. It couldn't be. He's supposed to be dead. He's not supposed to be here.
That bastard. How could he even be alive? I immediately allowed the vampire blood in me to take over, transforming me. The rest of the girls immediately stood by my side. I felt a hand on my shoulder and I saw Moka looking at me. I understood immediately. I took off her rosary and she transformed into a silver haired beauty.
"Hakuto" she growled menacingly.
"Moka, Tsukune" he said with a smirk.
"How can you be alive? We saw you die" Kurumu asked. I knew that she was as shocked as I was. Hakuto smirked.
"Well, it seems that you've underestimated me" he said.
I refused to listen to him talk and immediately lunged at him. Hopefully the training I had with Moka will help.
I punched him in the face, putting all my strength into that punch, and to my delight, he flew like a rocket, and crashing into the trees in the forest. Behind me, I can hear screams of panic. I didn't care. Usually, I don't resort to violence. But in Hakuto's case, its different. He tried to abduct Moka and at the same time tried to kill my friends. He is probably the only person that I would really like to kill. I jumped out at the window and landed on the ground and I heard landing sounds behind. I knew it was the girls. I saw Gin rushing to my side.
"What happened?" he asked worriedly as he took in the scene.
"Its Hakuto. That bastard still lives" I growled.
"What?" He asked shocked. But he quickly recomposed himself and transform into his wolf form.
I saw Hakuto regain his composure and smirked at me. That bastard. It seems that punch didn't have an effect at all. I growled more louder now. All at once, Gin, me and the girls lunged at him, punching, kicking and pounding him with full force. He flew again when Moka managed to land a blow, but he quickly sunk his claws to the ground, and flew forward. I saw that his right arm transformed into a blade and I immediately knew what he was going to do. He was going to kill Moka.
I pushed her out of the way. Instead of stabbing her, he stabbed me. I looked down and saw the blade stuck into me. He pulled it out and pushed me away. I heard the Moka screamed my name.
"Still the honorable one I see. Taking a blow like that for your girlfriend. I can't believe you're still as dumb as ever" he said laughing.
"Rot in hell you bastard" I managed to say. I fell backwards and my vision was starting to get cloudy.
"I'll see you, when my time come Tsukune. Until then, why don't you rot first" I managed to hear him say. And he left.
I could hear Moka and the girls crying. No, I don't want them to cry. Especially Moka. It pains me to hear her cry.
"TSUKUNE! YOU IDIOT! WHY DID YOU DO THAT!" She screamed as she held me. I was blacking out. My body was getting way to heavy for some reason. I couldn't move my body. Let alone feel. It was numb. So numb.
"Moka…" I managed to spurt out. I struggled to keep my eyes open. I saw her crying. The proud silver haired vampire crying. This is new.
"Tsukune, look at me. Hold on Tsukune. Please, don't leave us" I heard Yukari crying.
"Tsukune! Get a hold of yourself!" Kurumu wailed. I heard Gin rushing at my side, tearing off my shirt and inspected the injury.
"Well?" Moka growled. I could hear worry, sadness, impatience in her voice. Gin cleared his throat before he answered.
"I'm sorry. But there's nothing that we can do. He's taken quite a hit. Even his vampire powers can't heal him" Gin said with sorrow. So this is it? This is my end?
"What if I inject him with my blood? I did that before and it worked didn't it?" Moka asked. I could hear a small amount of hope in her voice.
"I'm sorry Moka. But that will quicken his….death" Gin said in a strained voice. I could tell he was trying very hard not to cry. I heard Moka took a deep breath, like she was trying to calm down. I could hear the other girls crying harder now.
"Moka…." I said again. Struggling to stay awake. I groaned in pain as I tried to reach her.
"I'm here Tsukune. I'm here" she said. I could feel her stroking my face, like she was trying to memorize it. With every ounce of courage I could muster, I said it.
"I love you"
I made sure that my voice was loud enough for her to hear. She cried harder now.
"I love you too, Tsukune. Always have" she said between sobs.
"Too bad I didn't said it earlier huh?" I said, trying to joke. But it wasn't working. I could feel my self slipping away slowly…
"You idiot. You're such an idiot" she said, before she kissed me. I kissed her back, with all the strength I could gather. At least now, I could die a happy man.
"Thank you Moka….I can go knowing that you loved me" I said. She cried, stroking my hair. I reached out for my chain, one that my parents gave to me. It was a dragon emblem. They gave it to me, before they died. And now I want her to have it.
"Here Moka, have this. Remember that I will always be watching over you. Don't think I'll be lost forever, okay?" I said handing her my chain. I felt her nod and she kissed my forehead.
"I love you Moka….I really do" I said, before I released my breath. And everything went black….
I blinked, and shook my head. I really thought that I died then. But when I woke up, I found my self here. I don't exactly know where is 'here' but according to what they say, I'm here because people that I know died, and in order for me not to make their life difficult, they brought me here. After that , they ran tests and experiments on me, injecting me with weird chemicals and testing my abilities. Because of that, my senses are greatly heightened, and I could lift a tank without breaking a sweat. My reflexes got faster and they trained me in combat. And they managed to get rid the ghoul side of me, and at the same time, get rid of all the vampire weakness that I have. I'm basically fine now, and I don't need a holy lock to keep me sane.
I went to the bathroom to brush my teeth. I looked at myself in the mirror. I noticed how much I've changed since then. I have a tattoo on the right side of my face, a mark left by the ghoul side of me. Even though its gone now, the tattoo remains there. And my eyes. Its no more brown. I don't know if it's the chemicals or what but it made my eye color turn from brown to silver. And it glows. When I asked why they say that it glows because I can see in the dark. I shrugged it off.
When I was done, I put on a black shirt, black combat pants and black combat boots. Don't bother asking me why everything is black. I walked out of the room and head towards the lab. I saw there along with some scientists readying some weird apparatus so that they can conduct some weird experiment again. I just sat in a corner watching them. You may be wondering why I didn't try escaping. Well I did. But their security here is so tight, not even a cockroach can come in without being noticed. Of course I didn't give up just then. But I realized that if I keep acting irrationally, I'm never gonna escape this hell hole.
noticed me and smiled at me. I heard that she has feelings for me but frankly speaking, I don't care. Like I said, I don't wanna get close to anyone here. She maybe be beautiful, smart and all, but there was only one queen that sits in my heart.
How I long to touch her again. To kiss her again. To have her lips against mine. I shivered slightly at that pleasant thought. For years, the only way I could get through the days is by thinking about her. Soon, very soon, I'll be in my way to see her. I got another escape plan ready. I just need to wait for the right moment…..
"You look like you're in a good mood" said a deep voice. I frowned. I knew that voice.
"How nice for you to disturb my thoughts, Eisuke" I said in an annoyed tone. He laughed and I just rolled my eyes. Gengo Eisuke was my only friend here. Though he can be a prick at times, he's my best friend. We were like brothers, as much as I hate to admit it. Unlike me, Eisuke was injected with a monster blood, forcing him to be one. Then, they experimented on him, like me. The pain that we both went through was horrible.
"Thinking about her again?" Eisuke asked. I just nodded. He knew how much I missed Moka. He smiled.
"I think about my Yuko all the time. We used to sit under the cherry tree in front of my house and just talk for hours….Until one day these bastards came and took me away" he said in a low angry tone. We hardly talk about our loved ones, but I know how much he cherished this girl Yuko.
"Ah, the both of you are here. If you gentlemen would wait for a bit, the apparatus is being set up" said as she approached us. I didn't say anything. I didn't even bother looking at her. I just closed my eyes.
"Can we have breakfast while waiting then?" Eisuke asked
"No, I'm sorry but you can't. We don't want anything to go wrong during the experiment" she said. I could feel her looking at me but I don't really care. I don't give a damn about what this women feel about me or how she treats me. She's equally bad as them. I opened my eyes when she walked away.
"You know, she was eyeing you the whole time. You sure got a reputation here mate" Eisuke chuckled.
"I don't care. And what do you mean by reputation?" I asked.
"As usual, you're oblivious. You're the most popular male among the females here. And not just among the colony, but among the doctors and scientists as well" Eisuke said.
"Eisuke, I seriously hate repeating myself, but I don't care" I said, followed by sigh.
"Gentlemen, if you would please follow me" said a voice. I looked up and saw a scientist motioning us to follow him.
"Asshole" I heard Eisuke muttered low enough so that only I could hear. I shook my head, though it was the truth. We both stood up and followed him.
