I do not own Black Butler.
His Maid, Marked
Ciel's eye twitched as we told him why Sebastian got random cuts and burns and had excruciating pain when I had been held captive.
"You two…" Ciel started.
"Yup," I said.
"In this mansion?" he asked.
"Very much so," I replied.
"And you two love each other?" he asked.
I turned a bright shade of red.
"I do indeed love her sir," Sebastian said.
"And so when she gets hurt…you feel her pain?" Ciel asked.
"Interesting," Ciel said before getting a sly smile on his face, "I suppose demons mate for life."
"No sir," Sebastian said, "When we mate…we mate…for eternity."
"I haven't agreed to mate with you though Sebastian," I said raising an eyebrow.
He looked at me out of the corner of his eye and then chuckled. "You didn't have to…your actions have made things perfectly clear," he said.
"Hmmm," I said.
"Ew," we heard Ciel say quietly.
"Well I believe that Jewels and I should get back to work," Sebastian said, "A Phantomhive servants' work is never done."
"Yes," Ciel said using his hand to shoo us out of the room. We bowed and left the room and I was going to head the salon to start my dusting for the day but Sebastian grabbed my arm and I looked at him.
"Meet me in the garden tonight at ten o'clock," he said, "I have a surprise for you."
"Is it anything like your last surprise?" I asked.
He chuckled. "No…but it is a very important…to both you and me," he replied.
"Um…ok," I said, "I'll be there."
He let go of my arm and I headed to the salon and started dusting. 'I wonder what the surprise will be,' I thought. As the day wore on I tried to figure out what in the world the surprise could be, but I couldn't think of anything. So at ten o'clock I headed out to the garden and was surprised to see it lit up by candles and there was a single chair sitting there. I went and sat down and before long Sebastian showed up.
"What do you think?" he asked handing me a red rose.
"It's quite lovely," I said taking the rose and looking around, "But why all of this?"
"I am going to ask you a question…a simple one, yet it will change both of our fates," he said.
"Sounds serious," I said.
"Yes, it is," he said, "Now, my love…do you remember what we were discussing with the young master earlier?"
"About the whole mating thing?" I asked.
"Yes," he replied.
"Mating is such a primeval term," I said wrinkling my nose.
He smirked. "You can be so picky when you want to be my sweet kitten," he said.
I just shrugged my shoulders. "Sometimes in life picky is required," I said, "So what is your question?"
"Do you wish to spend an eternity…with me?" he asked.
"What?" I asked.
"You know that I love you Jewels," he said.
"I don't think I can live for an eternity though," I said, "I'm only part demon."
"There is a way," he said, "It is like a Faustian contract…only to bonds to demons to each other. That way…even after I take the young masters soul…I will be bound to you…here on earth."
I thought for a moment and then smiled. "Yes," I said, "I will spend eternity with you." He took off one of his gloves and placed his hand over my heart and I felt a pain and when he pulled his hand away I had a pentagram on my chest with Celtic knots in it. He then took a step back put a hand over his own chest and kneeled down.
"We are now bound for eternity my love," he said, "I will be by your side no matter what."
I smiled. "And I yours…Sebastian Michaelis," I said.
Jewels: I know this was a VERY short chapter…but it was a wrap up chapter. So I hope that you liked the story! Thank you for all the reviews!
