The End of a Small Sanctuary


My earliest memories painted a vivid canvas of the very definition of a perfect childhood. I had a loving mother, a good-humoured father, an adorable baby sister, and her. My twin. She was the well sculpted protagonist in the chronicles of my life. And for as long as I can remember, I've always loved my her with everything in my heart.
She was always beautiful, in ways that inexplicably took my breath away. Always caring for me when I needed her most.
Always…there. And even in the darker moments of my past, she has never left my side.
And for that, I am truly grateful.

So how could I do something so unforgivable?

"Kana-chan, Kana-chan~" Suddenly a face appeared directly in front of mine, startling me out of my deep train of thought. I saw the blurry countenance smile before it moved to a more appropriate distance, allowing my long-sightedness to focus on the pretty girl in front of me "Are you just going to stare out the window all day or are we going to go shopping before it gets dark?"

Shaking my head to clear the thoughts of my once simple life, I stood up and grabbed my russet coloured coat from the hook by the door. Putting it on swiftly, I turned on my heels to face my sister as she stared over at me curiously, an eyebrow raised. Looking playfully back at her I smirked and raised my arm, offering it to her in a gentlemanly manner.

"Shall we then Madame?" I said in a faux British accent, making Yukino giggle at how bad it was.
Walking gracefully over to me she rest her arm atop of mine "Why yes good Sir, I believe we shall" She replied, in a drawl no better than my own.
Laughing, we left our dorm room spouting various other typically British phrases as we ambled down the stairs onto the street.

It would have appeared to anyone, who didn't know any better, that I was truly content. I'd smile and joke and do everything any normal, seemingly carefree teenager would do as she spent her Sunday browsing around the stores in the near by shopping district.

Though, deep down, in the pit of my stomach the feeling of dread weighed me down like a tonne of lead.

And as always, it started with a secret.

I was in love.

And the path of love is always one wrought with turmoil. Especially when they are blissfully unaware of your feelings. Even more so if, by accident or design, they turn out to be the same gender. And you might as well get out the damn rope if that person just so happens to be your twin.

I felt a prod on my cheek and I knew instantly that it was from a certain blonde who also happened to be the source of my confusion.

"Kana-chan, you're doing it again" she said in a melodious voice as she sat beside me casually munching on a piece of cake.
I stopped poking at my own desert on the plate in front of me and looked over at her.

"What do you mean? I'm not doing anything" I replied as I watched Yukino devour the rest of her food in one mouthful.

We'd been shopping for nearly three hours and it was beginning to get dark outside. On our way to the train station though, we had decided to take a different route and happened upon this little café that sold every type of pastry imaginable. I'd been against the idea initially, but nothing could stop Yukino's sweet tooth from getting its fix.

Wiping the excess crumbs from her mouth she continued "Exactly, you've been staring into to the distance like some sort of zombie" She seemed concerned but suddenly a mischievous grin made its way on to her face "It's almost like Kana-chan is…in love~"

Immediately my eyes widened and my eye brow twitched.
Realising this was a dead give away though, I tried to mask my surprise, remaining as nonchalant as possible as I lied my way out of this.

"Pfft yeah right, me? Love someone? Get out of here! No way, no how! I could never-"

Suddenly Yukino cut me off with a squeal that almost made me fall off my chair

"Oh Kana-chan! You do! Tell me who it is." She yelped clapping her hands together, making a couple three tables away stare over their cakes at us.
I sighed and rested my head on the table, realising that the execution of my defense was about as smooth as sand paper.

"Is it me?"

Her voice had dropped when she said it, but I heard it loud and clear.
My heart skipped a beat and my blood ran cold. I felt like time had frozen as she waited for my reply.

Does she know? Is she disgusted? Does she love me back? What if she does! Maybe this is my chance.

I tried desperately organizing my thoughts and finally came to a split second decision to be honest for once.
I swallowed, almost audibly, as I slowly lifted my head to say the most important and terrifying thing in my life.

"Juuust kidding." She chirped up, finishing the rest of my abandoned chocolate cake with a big smile on her face before I could say a word.

Next thing I knew I was pulling on her cheek as she begged for forgiveness.

A/N: Hey boys and girls, hope you are all well.

Anyway, let's cut the crap (haha sorry, I'm kidding I really do wish the best for you all :P) as you can see, this is a Candy Boy FF. I love CB. It's just so damn sweet, and even though it deals with something that is considered a taboo, it makes it not seem that way in the slightest.

I mean just to get things straight, I don't exactly condone or support incest in real life, but in the world of anime and fanfiction as long as it's done right, I'm liberal enough to be okay with it. But if you are offended in anyway, I apologise...but why the hell are you reading Candy Boy fanfictions in the first place!

Ahem, moving on, this is somewhat of a prologue so there is obviously more to come, so if it's possible, give those sexy fingers of yours a work out and type me up a review...nobody wants fat fingers right? I'm doing you a favour :D (In Yukino's voice: Juuust kidding~)
