Hello! Merry Christmas, So how was your day so far? Sorry, for been SO late, but I have been really busy (exams and stuff)
Even thought I wasn't able to write until now, I do not want you to think that I have forgotten this story, I really want to finish it (if you still want it that is…)
In this chapter I fear that you might be a bit confused at the end (I hope not)….
It took him a few minutes to realize what was going on, his gaze didn't fall on anything but the empty space around him, like a black screen that had just been zapped closed. The young man stood still on the floor and overwhelmed by the load of facts he had just witnessed, it was like he was back to the first day like a vampire an overwhelming emotion unable to quite place it, it wasn't only the fact that this new development was moving all too fast of him but rather the fact that he a almost a thousand years old vampire proud for being one of the remaining five with the most knowledge had not foreseen this.
Was it truly possible for a vampire to walk under the sun unaffected by the rays of light? Even as he had just seen it with his own eyes, it was difficult for him to admit to it. In all his years, well, the years he could in fact recollected he had never heard anything like this, or has he? The young man perused his mind, like he was going through all the pages of all the books in a library for any information that he may have heard or saw over the years, to shed some light to this unexpected outcome. While still lying on the fancy floor of the luxurious room with only his hands supporting his weight he looked up only to find the edge of a sharp sword pointed a few centimeters from his face, but Allen wasn't confused any longer, he was wade awake.
"What is it that you are trying to do?" Allen asked while standing up not averting his gaze from the man in front of him, a scarp look that took Kanda by surprise.
"Nothing really, I just feel like having a cute toy to play with" behind Kanda's teasing smile and piercing gaze there seemed to be a rather cold, aloof feeling that failed to measure up to the warm taunting sensation of his words.
"A toy…?" Allen pointed out gritting his teeth while trying to keep his temper at bay but failing to do so "it seems that I have been poorly misjudged" the young man's eyes lighted as he stepped to the side in the shadows again to hide himself from the light he so much feared over the years and that same fear was still lurking somewhere inside him.
A heavy atmosphere fell around the room; a murderous intent fell upon Kanda's shoulders as Allen moved in front of the man's blade and sharpened his claws. The feeling that emitted from him was that of a wild tiger ready to attack, Kanda sensed that and grabbed his samurai sword both hands and firmly tightened his grip around the handle of the blade.
The small snickering that broke the silence of the room made Allen with at first questionable and then enraged look to almost jump from his position and claim this sardonic man's life. Kanda then sensed the need to explain the small enjoyment he found in the Allen's gestures "You…even thought I just told you that you can only drink blood from me are you truly still thinking only of killing me?"
"No, it is simple really one hundred years to as vampires is like ten minutes to you humans so if you are telling the truth and I will have to keep drinking an exorcist's blood while still being a lab rat and waiting for the one hundred years to be over and die I would like nothing better than to kill you myself"
"What the …! You have a death wish?! Annoying brat…!" Kanda moved his head back in surprise a small disgust mixed with concern had been had been drawn over Kanda's pale eyes.
"No…! I see it as a win-win situation, you get to be relieved of the duty of having to bare the title of a meal and as a bonus I am just about to get rid of an annoying pest"
"I still don't see how's that is worse than dying thought" Kanda thought to himself
"Oh… What are you going to do, swing your little claws at me?" he said with still the same sardonic smile plastered around his pale lips. "Why don't you just give up?"
"Does he think that I am that of a failure of a vampire that I can't even be called a threat?"
The young man didn't reply to that comment, but his claws sharpened even more as he lunged at him straight on, Kanda pulled up his blade and with a swift cut and angle coming straight down he made Allen step aside to evade the blow that seemed to be coming straight for his head and it instead landed and cut a small piece of cloth of his shirt. Now Allen had the upper hand, with Kanda wide open he struck with his one hand first the man's wrists relaxing his grip and then with his elbow Kanda's face. The impact from the immense power Allen used made Kanda's nose bleed and while falling back the young man seized the blade while Kanda was still holding the hilt of the sword by twisting the man's arm purposely throwing him on the ground and gaining control over the weapon.
Kanda had lost consciousness for only a second before him realizing a vast amount of pressure coming from above his position, while still with a blurry vision he saw the serrated edge of his very sword without losing time coming straight for him.
"Shit…!" Kanda with a quick movement rolled sideways and evaded the blade with only a small scar coming out and trailing over his left arm.
"Tch…!" Allen said in disappointment diverting his hands from the blade lunched deep in the floor and as Kanda finished his backwards roll Allen kicked him using his left foot.
With only his palms protecting him from the vampires attack Kanda made a few steps backwards before losing his balance over small objects on the floor and ending up with his back facing the wall of the room.
"…it wasn't this tough the last time…" Kanda thought to himself, his gaze fell around the wrecked room, scanning every dark corner he spotted the obscure shadow of a creature coming with an immense speed towards him.
Allen with an incredible speed moved in front of Kanda, and with the same speed he punched straight for Kanda's face but escaping the attack by using his right hand and changing a bit the direction of the blow he launched his own. The few misses caused the plaster from the wall to fall on the empty floor of the room along with a few of other smaller objects that were kicked off balance as the fight progressed.
Using his right one hand Kanda punched Allen but he swiftly avoided the attack that was headed straight for his face by only tilting his head a little. Allen's grin toward the samurai made Kanda slightly angry with himself for not being able to immobilize or even slightly decrease the movements of the vampire.
So Kanda with his left knee kicked the vampire in front of him back, Allen firstly by blocking the kick by using his hands jumped to the back of the room to put some distance between them. But that didn't stop either of them as the hand fight seemed to be continuing on, a fight between two experience fighter using both their hands and feet to bring their opponent down.
"You are so feisty this early in the morning…I like it" Kanda said in a playful tone trying to act tough while still barely eluding his hits. Now Kanda took a small metal lamp that was standing on to the nightstand and started using it like a sword.
"Y-you…!" Allen turned bright red as he gritted his fangs to the man in front of him, boiled with anger he launched a high side kick and knocked the lamp off Kanda's hands and on to the floor next to the window, that took Kanda by surprise that was still in a lamp holding position even a few seconds after Allen's attack. Seeing that reaction a smirked of enjoyment creased upon Allen's lips while on the other hand a distinctive look of anger gave the first sarcastic man a different atmosphere around him.
"Wow…if I don't get serious you may actually kill me…." Kanda said, a blank statement that didn't hold absolutely any feelings, but Allen didn't answer.
Kanda rushed towards the vampire but escaped him by jumping towards his katana that was still stuck in the middle of the floor, turning himself to face Allen as he pulled out the blade and pointed it to his direction. A moment of silence had taken over the room, Kanda while still holding the blade moved in front of Allen still ready to attack and brought the blade straight down but Allen with his high speed turned at the last minute appearing from the shadowy corner behind him and made Kanda trip to grab his weapon and with a backhand grip aimed towards the exorcist that was on the floor. Kanda would have tried to roll sideways but Allen had stepped with a lot of his strength on Kanda's foot and that was impossible to do so.
It was four to five centimeters from his shoulder were the blade hit its mark; truthfully, Allen was aiming for the kill but Kanda still managed to elude the fetal blow using his flexibility making Allen only hit the back of Kanda's shoulder.
The young man let a small "Tch! "of disappointment slip from his lips as he laid his weight with one of his knees pushing down the samurai. And while stepping over him immobilizing him, he moved one of his hand to hold in place Kanda's, that was looking upward he and while still holding the old sword firmly in his hand stirred it vigorously inside the wound.
Kanda let out a small cry, as he bit his lip to refrain from farther embarrassment. After a while the pain settled down, and as it did a small but broken crease appeared on his lips part from the immense pain and part filled with amusement "Well… Agn…! I wasn't expecting you to get the drop on me like that a second time"
"I told you didn't I…you have been underestimating me, exorcist, and I can see through your lies"
"I didn't lie; proof enough is that you are still alive…you should give me a kiss for reward…" you could see Allen light blush fill up that snow white skin of his and a expression of surprise and embarrassment, a certain sign that Allen hadn't yet forgotten what happened last night. But the previous light color that could be barely is spotted amongst the white that too quickly faded away just like the expression.
"just because one thing is true doesn't mean that it will be certain for the other" Allen had a black cold expression on his face that betrayed his mistrust over Kanda, just as they were still in the same position on the floor Allen had noticed the rays of light had been dangerously close.
"I told you don't need to worry about that anymore, as long as I am with you…" Kanda said that had noticed Allen's concern over the sunlight "I will save my princess…" Kanda's teasing smirk clearly full of pleasure couldn't cover up the still full of alert expression that when he was on the battleground.
Allen before removing his hand from the blade he made sure it wasn't easily swayed and not removed and then with his fangs and teeth he pulled back the shelve that had been covering up his pale white skin and revealed the veins on his wrists. Kanda watched with wonder as Allen bite down on his hand with his fangs and hot red liquid started flowing out of his skin, the red liquid started trailing down Allen's wrists and a few drops fell on Kanda's back.
"What the hell are you doing?! Are you still so hungry that you decided to drink your own blood?!" Kanda shouted at Allen, his voice filled with concern for the elegant vampire that had him immobilized.
Allen moved himself closer to Kanda to the point where he could feel Allen's expression on the backside of his neck and could see clearly the small but clear bite marks and red blood flowing Out of the Vampires skin like you have opened a faucet, a small surprise had been graphed on his face as it was so close that he could practically taste it.
"I have a question for you" Allen said still keeping his wrist close enough to Kanda's mouth but not close enough for his hand to be touching him " how would you like to be turned into the same kind you hunt for so many years? Exorcist turned into a Vampire that is a sight to behold, even a person as open-minded as yourself to be the same blood sucking Vampire that you hunted and kill humans when you worked so long to save them will not be able to handle it…"
"I don't know if you haven't read the vampire handbook yet, but that alone with not turn me into anything" Kanda said his voice had the same sarcastic tone and his face the same amusement look, Kanda's voice was indeed steady but something I Allen's gaze had him worried, he was almost certain that Moyashi even a vampire as old as him he wouldn't try to do anything that foolish not until he knew all the information he needed, but he also knew that right now Moyashi was angry and a vampire's emotions are a lot more heightened than human's, to the point where they could be blinded by rage.
"I know the procedure" Allen said calmly "I will drink your blood to the point of death while still holding this blade to your back, and only when you can't beg anymore I will let you join the creatures you hunted, I wonder what the Order will do to you? Even if you are ok with it I can't imagine they will be" Allen said his voice still on the same tone as before, the wound on his hand seemed to still be hurting, but not as but as the one Kanda had on his shoulder.
Well it wasn't anything about hating vampires from a grudge or anything like that, but something stirred into Kanda, there was a high possibility that Allen was just bluffing but there was also the fact that he would do it given the chance and if so the Order wouldn't be as calm about it as he is. What was it that made it this creature seemed so helpless?
"If you must know the sunlight effect will wear off after some time, but it is true of what I said about my blood being your only source of food" Kanda said his eyes turned away as he thought "well even if I tell him that it will not change anything so it is ok…"
"So it isn't permanent? I thought as much…" Allen said with a small sign, you could see the disappointment plastered around him face "what tell me that the other special ability of your blood would be any different?" said with a curious gaze
"You don't know, well unless you wait for a couple of days when you will be hungry again and find out, but then it may be too late to track me down…"
"We will see then" Allen said after thinking about it for a second and then he said "then it is a new experiment of the Order's... and you must be their most recent lab rat, but It would seem that your blood still has some technical issues that you need to deal with…"
"I didn't say protection against the sun will last forever" Kanda tried to defend himself
Allen couldn't completely hide anymore the small pained expression on his face
Allen expression changed again, a curious smirk had been plastered around his face, and Allen started licking his hand that had the bite marks on while his eyes continued to fall upon Kanda. Kanda too didn't seem to avert his gaze from the peculiar creature, in his eyes Allen now seemed to be giving off an alluring feline creature. Soon the bite marks disappeared and Allen's face turned even paler than it had already been, probably from the loss of blood.
He again moved close to Kanda's face so closed that Kanda could still feel Allen's breathe tingling the backside of his ear. Allen's hand like a snake slithered down Kanda's back and unbuttoned a few silver buttons from in front, as his hands slipped inside his uniform.
Almost like trying to Mesmerize every curve Allen's hand slipped through Kanda's shirt and crossed all over his body as they reached the baseline of Kanda's neck. Allen keeping his slender hand on Kanda's cheek made him slowly turn his head sideways where he could have a better view. The wet sound and Allen's hot breathe directly in Kanda's ear made a shiver raced through the young samurai and his cheeks and ears he ever so slightly flushed. Allen traced his tongue along the base of Kanda's ear; he followed with a light nibble on his earlobe and Kanda let out a small "…Hah…" slip his lips as a small yet significant numbing sensation followed in his lower abdomen and more shivers sped up his spine.
"…what are you doing?" Kanda calm voice didn't match the still soft color of pink that contrasted with his pale face. Once again Allen's hand slithered inside Kanda's shirt; Kanda held a stern but sort of forced look as Allen started brushing his soft hand against Kanda's chest.
"You enjoy doing this sort of thing right? A selfish desire to satisfy your needs, forcing yourself in and enjoying yourself on others peoples bodies…" Allen whispered into his ear, Kanda with the corner of his eye spotted a cold expression on this vampires face "or is it something more than that?" the piercing stare burned Kanda too the backside of his head a gaze mixed full of questions and rage.
"Something more…? Haven't I told you what you wanted to know" I high pitched tone covered up the small silence, Kanda smirked arrogantly as he almost laughed at that affirmation, a short tune that didn't match the usual low calm soothing tone that Kanda consistently used
"not nearly close, even thought you humans can do it solely out of a pure selfish desire I just can't help to think there's something more than that with you" Allen's eyes scanned the exorcist that he laid on top of. "Not with your kind, indeed, Duplicitous minds, malignant animals…" a scarp voice yet composed voice that didn't seem to be speaking full of emotions from past experience but like the young vampire was reading out of a book of rules that was made and set for them to read and follow.
"…do you mean Exorcists or humans?"
"…both…" the immediate response made Kanda a bit surprised and a bit bothered about Allen's passed experience.
"Aren't you going a bit overboard…? We aren't all like that…" Kanda tried to defend himself but Allen didn't seem to be bothering with it, instead he simply leaned on to him so close so his cheek brushed against Kanda's hair he let a desirous look slip from his face.
"…You don't tell me you are hard…?" you could sense Allen's amusement as his voice tingled into Kanda's ear.
"…You…Annoying Moyashi! Let me go…!" Kanda said angrily while trying to free himself from that situation but with the blade still in the wound and on his back while Allen kept him down with both his body and his hand it was difficult.
Allen grinned; an amusement seemed to be plastered o his face "it is Allen…And now that you know how that feels won't you tell me what the Order's mission…is? Why is it they need to gain control over a nonaligned vampire like myself…?"
"What you don't like the reason I gave you…?"Kanda grinned at him teasingly but still trying to suppress his pained expression from the blade still lanced on his back.
As he spoke you could recon two things, one on his breathing, a short and heavy breathing and on his face that was a mix of both a suppressed pained expression coming from the blade and a passionate look.
"…of what I heard they might as well be nothing but lies…"
"What do you mean? The mission is always the same: kill Akuma's"
"And yet I am still here…you seriously have to work on your lies…"
"Well, you seem to have it all worked out, why don't you tell me you theory then…"
"The fact that you haven't killed me yet tells me that the Order wants me alive" Allen's words were whispered into Kanda's ears with a calm but cold tone, which gave Kanda a small shiver. It was a certain thing to say that something had moved into Kanda's heart, it felt like a tight grip had just been put around him.
"…and…?" Kanda stared at Allen; his look seemed to be examining the vampire that made him bleed with his own blade.
"As I said earlier I seriously doubt that I can only drink blood from you, if you say that the protection against sun lasts only hour, Not to mention the fact that if this was only out lusts then I doubt you would still be an exorcist…"
"Did you spend a long time thinking that up? Aren't you putting too much thought in what happened here…you are trying to give it a different meaning when it's only just that…? And for my blood you can wait until you starve again to see" Kanda snickered; his voice hadn't lost that playful sound in them.
Allen didn't respond to that mans remark, a cold black stare incomparable with all of his previous looks replaced them, It was in his nature, a vampire's nature, to first observe his victims before killing them a small enjoyment over the victims unique response, like a ceremony. Kanda even more exasperated than he already was tried to find a way out, but unfortunately for him it didn't seem like Allen was going to fall for his traps.
"Now…whatever should I do with this rapist?" the shadowy figure had a distinctive grin upon his face, the small crease seemed to give the figure an uncomfortable and vile feeling "tell me something… does being an exorcist really allow you this kind of behavior or is it just you?"
"That's a little too much; as I remember you surely enjoyed it…not to mention what you did before, you are just the same!"
"I am reluctant to believe that we can compare what I did just now with what you did yesterday…"
Allen while still immobilizing and having him pinned down brought his face closer to the man's neck, close enough for him to be able to smell the aroma under his skin, a euphoric scent unlike the others until now.
"Indeed, Truly unique scent, I can almost taste it" Allen said and with an unchanged expression and barely flinching left deep scars over his arm where he was holding.
"…You little…! Release me and I shall chop your hair off!"
"Wait, is that a new fetish? I doubt you can do anything like that thought, let alone chop my hair…" Allen said with a sarcastic look on his face spinning the sword even more and making Kanda gasp once again.
"What does the Order want with me?!"
"There is a job for you…" Kanda said and paused, the playful tone and choice of words followed by the silence were too much for the short temper vampire like Allen and made him lose his temper and with a twist of the blade the swordsman let out a soundless painful gasp. With an irregular breathing he looked up to the man he was holding him, He had to make a quick turn of events or he would be in trouble.
"Talk…! you better answer me quick because I may not be sure if I can kill you just yet but I will start breaking some fingers instead" Allen said with still the same cold stare but now there was something else in there a small, barely noticeable feeling, the swordsman determine it as foreign to its host something that didn't seem to belong there in the first place, a despondent feeling mixed with rage.
"…do you think that this with scare me? I told you will need to come with me for you to learn the rest" the small sarcastic tone full of rage hadn't become dull at all.
"Well, I was under the impression that wanting your fingers was a good enough reason…" said his voice had now a playful rhythm to them tightening his grin around the long thin fingers of the man.
"Fine, since you are going to learn anyway…first let me go…"
Allen pulled out the blade that was lanced in Kanda's shoulder and stepped aside and as he pulled the blade Kanda let a small groan fall from his lips.
"You heard about the serial killer right? The vampire killings, that's what brought you to that house…" Kanda said now sitting upright on the edge of the bed while his hand was still holding his wounded shoulder.
"Yes..." Allen said with a curious look plastered on his face
"We have been o this case and following their trail for months now…" Kanda said with a bothered look on his face, his gaze fell on the broken glasses, the fallen plaster on the floor, the tossed objects and the bloody hole on the floor where the blade used to be.
"What does that have to do with me…? You already know I didn't have anything to do with it" Allen began to get more and more curios, his anticipation to finally hear what was this all about was hanging from this man's lips.
"Tell me Allen Walker…how would you like the chance to kill one of your kinds?" Kanda eyes lighted up, the playful tone made way to a dark feeling behind Kanda, it made him seem to be exited to the very thought of it.
"So you are telling me that this is the work of vampires? It couldn't be just the work of an ordinary human pretending to be one…do you have any evidence?" Allen thought out loudly "and I still do not see how I fit into this plan, don't you have enough human tools for the job?"
"That will be all I will tell you for now, if you will want to learn more then you will have to come with me…" Kanda said trying to stand up but still dizzy from the wound on his shoulder and when he was going to fall he fell on Allen's arms that detected Kanda's faintness. Allen now was holding him so close to himself, his hand could touch the wound on Kanda's shoulder but Allen tried not to, it took him some minutes to realize what happened, Allen without thinking moved with an extremely fast speed and helped this human, it wasn't that he wasn't conscious or anything like that, leaving both himself and Kanda a bit surprised.
"D-Don't tell me I feel guilty for hurting him…?!" Allen thought to himself, unexplained emotions stirred inside him, anger towards himself mixed and flustered "No! He is a source of food, a human! Besides He had it coming, he is clearly playing with me, and he did those things to me yesterday and…and…" Allen stopped as he recalled last night's events; a clear red blush had shown on to his snow white skin, Allen shook his head as he tried to stop thinking about last night's events.
Clearing his throat he pulled Kanda away from him and steadied him "it would seem that I was left with no other choice but to stay with you until I get more information"
"If all your questions are finished then we need to get the move on us are late…" Kanda said still holding with one arm his shoulder and walking towards the door, but Allen grabbed his loose hand and made him stop and turn to face him.
"What now do not tell me you have more questions?" Kanda asked without making any sort of movement "just so you know this room is on rent so if you still need to ask something more we will need to move into a more secure location" Kanda joked as he made a gesture towards the condition of the room, Allen then with an awkward look realized now that he when a bit overboard and Kanda realizing it grinned as he looked away.
"This guy is still making a fun out of me" Allen gritted his fangs but contained his anger.
"You can't go outside like that" Allen pointed out with his head to the bloody uniform and the wound "take off your shirt; I will heal it for you…" Allen said still not looking Kanda straight in the eyes
"Its fine, it isn't that big of a deal" Kanda said pulling his hand way but Allen quickly captured it again and pulled him back.
"if you go outside like that now people will wonder and I also do not know how long much longer this sunlight protection will last…So…" Allen stopped talking, his clear gaze finally meeting Kanda's.
"We are not walking all the way to our destination…but the sunlight might present a problem later on" Kanda stood still for a moment or two, after that he started unbuttoning the silver buttons and taking off the white shirt with the visible blood stain on.
Allen's eyes turned to a scarlet color to the sight of the flowing blood from the wound, moving closer he slightly kneeled down to get a better sight of the wound, Allen now wrapped one of his arms around Kanda's waist and pulled him back even closer to him and started licking the blood around the wound as he moved closer towards the inside, and then sucking some of the blood out. Soon enough the wound disappeared leaving behind only some stains. Allen stood up his eyes still red from the blood in his mouth, Kanda turned around in search of a new shirt, when he got dressed he turned around to find Allen still in the shadows next to the window with his hand hanging out to the slightly opened curtains where the ray of light was hitting his snowy white skin.
"Should I give you a reward?" Kanda said startling Allen that immediately pulled his hand away from the sun and looked back at him.
"For?" Allen asked in a indifferent voice "I caused that wound I was merely making us even" Allen noticing that Kanda finished getting dressed started walking towards the door.
"You could have left it like that anyway…" Kanda grabbed his hand as he was walking passed him, then he smirked happily as he placed his other hand on Allen's neck and pulled him closer and lightly kissed him on the cheek. "Let's go" he said with a calm voice turning his back and walking away from the angry and flustered Allen that was minutes away from reopening that wound.
"that guy I will kill him ones I get what I want" Allen thought to himself flustered as he looked at his fist that he had something clenched inside. As Allen slightly opened his fist a small barely two centimeters in size flask appeared, he had hidden it to the back pocket in his pants. The flask seemed to contain red liquid that was probably some of the remaining blood still lingering in his mouth and spit inside the flask the time he whipped his mouth. "I will surely find out what your blood is capable of" Allen's determination burned inside him as he followed the exorcist out the door and to what it would probably would be his first case.
~to be continued~
So hear it is, did I overdo it with Allen? (Well I think it is a normal reaction if you think what he is and what Kanda did….probably….maybe…?)
Please, tell me your thoughts on this chapter, I really hope you enjoyed this one as well….
