I wake up in my comfortable because of the blare of my alarm clock.
"Ug," I say as I put my pillow over my head.
"Ikuto, you have to get up! We are going to be late for school," my younger sister Utau yells at me. I groan as I roll out of the bed. I get dressed in my school uniform. A black shirt, with a red tie, a black blazer with the school crest on one. Then I throw on black pants and shoes.
I run downstairs, and decide against the jacket. Its crowding my style and devilishly handsome looks. Huh, I really am hot.
"IKUTO! Stop looking in the mirror! We have to go! Come on!" Utau angrily yelled as she pulled me out the door. We sprinted towards the main building, bursting into our classroom just as the bell rang.
I sit down, while Utau goes and talks about everything that has happened since they separated yesterday.
"Oi! Ikuto! Did you hear?" Utau's boyfriend came running towards me with a paper in his hand. I scowl at him.
"Hear what?" I ask.
"Well, apparently the teacher knows this family of scientist that are obsessed with creating artificial life. He says that he wants to show us something that they have, so were going on a fieldtrip. We will get to see the real world Ikuto! The outside the academy!" he jumps up and down, tale wagging happily.
Outside the walls of the academy? Wow, its been so long that I cant even remember what is out there. Though the academy is huge, we have never seen anything in the real city of Tokyo. All we know of it is what we see on the television, and let me tell you, that isn't much.
"Hello, freak shows and nutcases," our teacher Nikaidou says cheerfully as he skips into the room. He is the only human at this school. Yes, I said human. The rest of us are either completely crazy, or freaks. For example, I am half cat. I have ears and a tail. Creepy, huh?
"Today is a very special day. We are going outside the academy wall on a field trip," he says. "We are going to the Hinamori estate. They are obsessed with creating the perfect being. So far, they have not managed, but they don't give up." he says.
"There has to be a catch. Are they like us?" asks a girl who has blades sticking out of her skin.
"No, they are human…but …well, you will see when you get their." he says darkly.
We are all loaded into limousines with completely black out windows. People couldn't see in and we couldn't see out. I knew there had to be a catch.
"This sucks," said Kukai, who was sitting across from me. His pointy dog ears are flat against his orange hair and his green eyes are filled with disappointment.
"They don't want us knowing about the outside world," says a purple haired boy says. You can see long fangs jutting out of his mouth.
"Duhh," grumbles Utau. She ruffles the white feathered wings that are jutting from her back and flicks her long blonde hair over her shoulder and rolls her eyes at her boyfriend.
"Ohhh that doesn't make Yaya happy!" says a brown haired and eyed girl as she plays with the crushed glass in her hand. The little girls skin is impenetrable.
"You guys are all morons," says a long brown haired and gold eyed girl. She plays with her nametag that says 'Rima' as her skin changes color rapidly.
I stay quiet throughout the whole ride. There is something off about this.
I can just tell.
"WE DID IT! WE FINALLY MADE THE PERFECT LIFE!" yells my mother as she runs up to hug my father.
"Midori, we will be famous! Ami will make us famous! She wont disappoint us!" my father, Tsumugu, says.
Midori goes into the lab and comes out with a bundle in her arms. She coos it and cradles it, then hand it to my father. He walks up to me and looks me right in the eyes.
"This is what success looks like. This, you little bitch, is everything that you aren't," he sneers into my face. I don't even blink. He scowls at me and walks back to his wife.
'I wonder what it would be like to be a success,' I think to myself. I might not be able to feel, but idle questions can still float through my head. Especially, when you have as much time as I do.
While my parents are completely wrapped up with the child, I hear the door creak open and soft whispers. Before the intruders can blink, I have a blade at the leaders throat. I look and see who it is and my hand holding the knife falls to my side.
"Sorry, Master Nikaidou," I say as I get on my knees, bowing. I can see the feet of many, and at that moment, I am glad that I wear a hood that covers me completely.
"Its okay, Amu-san. Are your parents in?" he asks. I nod and lead him to the room where my parents are, just as I left them.
"Midori! Tsumugu! How are you?" he asks in a happy voice as he goes over and hugs them both.
"Oh! Nikaidou! You came at the perfect time. We perfected her. We made Ami, finally!" Midori screams happily. She didn't notice the small hands of her child, Ami, going around her throat.
Here is a lesson that Midori had to learn the hard way.
NEVER UNDERSTIMATE A DOLL.
No matter how small you make them, unlike humans, their size doesn't measure their strength. Ami squeezed as hard as she could and my mother tried to claw her hand off of her throat.
My father ran over, trying to help his wife, and he managed to get Ami off of her. Midori kneeled on the floor gasping for breath. I lunged toward the child. Before my father knew what was happening, I had put my hand through the chest of Ami and pulled out her heart. Black blood dripped to the floor as I dropped Ami's dead body to the floor.
"YOU BITCH!" midori screamed as she lunged at me. I grabbed my knife and stabbed her through the heart. She looked at me as blood leaked out of the side of her mouth.
"I always hated you," she says before she takes her last breath.
"NO! HOW COULD YOU?" yelled Tsumugu. He held the body of his dead wife in his arms.
He lunges at Amu with a shard of glass that was on the floor. I did the same to his as I did to his wife.
I just killed my mother, father and sister.
Murderer. that's what I am. I don't want to kill, but I do. I have too. I have a never ending thirst for bloodshed.
"Amu…how…how could you?" asked Nikaidou.
I ignore him and watch as the black blood of Ami mixes with the crimson blood of my parents.
Finally I answered. "I never really liked them," I say simply.
"What the hell is happening?" asks a boy angrily. I don't look up, im still entranced by the blood all around me.
"Amu is a human who was turned into a doll. She cant feel, and her parents finally made something that could, but she killed it. Then she killed them." Nikaidou explained.
"A…doll? What a joke. This is all a joke, isn't it Nikaidou?" the same boy asks. I look up, then stand up, then take off the long black cape that covers me. I look into the dark blue eyes of the boy who asked the question. He stares at me with a mixture of curiosity and amazement.
"I am a doll," I say as I walk towards him. "And you are my new master," I say. I get up on my tiptoes and press my lips to his, closing my gold eyes and sealing the contract.
I pull away and take a step back. I bow low.
"My name is Hinamori Amu.
I am 16 years old.
Please feel free to command me as you wish,
I do what Im told
Our contact is sealed with a kiss
I am yours until you die
I do anything but love you back
So please don't make me try." I sang to him.
"How may I be of service, master?" I ask with a small, empty smile.
Thank you for all the support! I will continue! I hope you like!
