This is what you get when you cross school books and Vocaloid '^^. Anyway, my class just finished reading the book The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini (which I highly recommend for those of you who have not read it. It's truly a great novel :) ). I wrote a paper on the two main characters and all the while thought of Rin and Len Kagamine in Servant of Evil. So, this little one-shot was born. Enjoy! Also, please R&R!
DISCLAIMER: I don't own Vocaloid or the Kite Runner!
...For you, a thousand times over. Her servant always responded with the same pure and sweet statement for every deed he performed, whether it be pleasant, painful, or exhausting. She herself was vain and selfish, perhaps even a bit evil. But she was his princess, he was her servant. Whatever she wished for, he would grant.
She started with simple, childish requests, like for him to retrieve a lost hairpin for her. She sat on a blanket in a field of wheat while he searched until finally he returned, covered in burs and dirt but with the hairpin in hand. He dropped it by her feet and she cheered, tackling him in a hug. He gave a light laugh and pulled back. She thanked him over and over, and he just pressed a finger to her lips and told her, with a tiny grin; "For you, a thousand times over."
She began to wish for things more geared towards personal pleasure, such as a platter of freshly baked brioches on a sunny afternoon. She ate a forkful, a blissful smile appearing on her lips that he instantly returned. As she handed him the finished plate and expressed her gratitude, his smile only widened and he responded cheerfully; "For you, a thousand times over."
She desired a horse, but complained of the price being too high for her. Of course she could afford it, but she was much too proud to ever give up any of her spoils. She asked her servant to get one for her at any cost, and in any way. He returned to the palace one day with a gorgeous mare in tow. He had sold his gold ring, given to him by his mother, in exchange for his master's insignificant wish. She took the reigns in one hand without a word, and he clasped the free one in his own with an earnest smile; "For you, a thousand times over."
She loved the prince of the blue kingdom with a dangerous passion. She grew envious of his relationship with the princess of the green kingdom. So, she ordered him to kill her. And there he stood, a bloodied knife clasped in his hands and blue eyes not daring to move from her own. His usually flawless cloak was splattered with bright red splotches. She felt a bit nauseous at the gory sight, and willed herself not to be sick when he approached her. As he placed a trembling hand on her shoulder and leaned in close, she heard a shaking voice in the hoarsest of whispers; "For you, a thousand times over."
A sickening chime rang throughout the shattered yellow kingdom, as the crowd hurled insults and spat at the boy, dressed as the princess, about to be executed. She pushed her way through the gruff bodies to the front of the crowd, watching as her beloved servant was forced into the wooden cuffs so only his head was visible. Tears burned her cheeks like poison as she watched the blade slowly rise above him. He shifted his tired gaze to her, and gave a frail smile as his lips moved for the final time; "For you, a thousand times over."
I hate killing Lenny-kins! :( But oh well, I guess that's how the story goes. Reviews are appreciated!
