Chapter 2

The Company

"Jiro, I want you, I need you." Her voice was deep and intoxicated as she gazed into his eyes, her cheeks flushed pink.

He moved a shaking hand to her cheek and stroked it so tenderly as if she was made of porcelain and might break at the slightest touch. "Mimiko..." he breathed her name as his lips hungrily brushed hers, they were soft so and yielding.

"Jiro..."

"Jiro..."

"Jiro!"

"Yaaaghhh! His eyes snapped open when he felt the unmistakable sensation of burning and saw Mimi standing over him with an empty bucket of water in her hand and a frown on her face.

"What was that for?" Steam rose from his clothes. "Gah! Mimiko I wish you would stop doing that!"

She burst out laughing. "Sorry, but I was calling you for ages. So what where you dreaming about?"

His body tensed and he tried to stand, which after the intensity of the dream, proved rather difficult. Damn it. I can't let her see me like this. "I... it was nothing."

She raised an eyebrow. "Err, are you sure you're ok?"

"Fine," he growled.

"Well, come on we're going to be late for work!"

She grabbed him by the hand to help him up from the bed, but he was still unsteady on his feet and fell backwards, pulling her down on top of him. For a moment both of them froze not knowing what to do, breaths heavy, hearts pounding at the sudden closeness. He winced in embarrassment hoping she couldn't feel his sin.

"Jiro...about yesterday." She moistened her lips. "Does it mean that you...?" She shook her head hating not being able to form words properly. "I mean, I never knew you were interested in me in that way."

He smiled gently and swept a strand of chocolate her from her flushed face. "Since living with you here Mimiko, I have realised how much you mean to me. I'm a fool not to have seen it sooner, I've been too wrapped up in my own problems. I think...I'm in love with you Mimiko. Mimiko?" She was crying.

"You don't know how long I have wanted you to say that," she whispered wrapping her arms tightly around his neck and burying her face into his shoulder, inhaling the comforting scent of his leather coat.

"Yuck you're all wet," she wrinkled her nose and pulled back.

"Well you did pour a bucket of water over me," he laughed lightly.

"So I did, sorry."

"We're going to work!" sang Kotaro happily as he skipped into the room. The entwined lovers swiftly moved apart. "So what are we doing today Mimi?"

"Well Kotaro, I think there's some paper work and stuff I have to do. You can help me with that if you like."

"Paperwork?" Jiro groaned. "Mimiko..."

"Come on you big baby, it won't take that long.


Jiro felt tired and grumpy after his rather rude wakeup call and to make matters worse the sun was unbearably hot today, even his parasol did'nt seem to help. He watched Kotaro skip along beside him, envying his little brother's tolerance to sunlight. He groaned wearily and rolled his eyes. "I can't believe you woke me up and threw water over me just to do paperwork, Mimiko."

"Don't make me come back there Jiro," She huffed storming on ahead.

As they entered the office, Mimiko's colleague Hibari greeted them, a huge blush reddened her cheeks when she saw the imposing vampire stood in the doorway, then she looked at Mimiko and noticed that she seemed different somehow, almost glowing in appearance.

She took Mimiko aside. "Did you two, you know?"

"What?"

"Do it?"

Mimiko's face went redder than Zelman Clock's hair. "Grrrr! Hibari! You little...No we didn't!"

"Ok! Ok! But you two are an item right?" She whispered leaning forward conspiratorially.

Mimiko rolled her eyes. There was no fooling her annoyingly perceptive colleague. "Yes. But don't tell anyone ok? I mean the commissioner can't find out about us, it's against Company policy."

"Ok, Ok, I won't tell! I just hope you know what you're doing Mimiko. Anyway, I've got stuff to do so I'll see you later."

Kotaro swung on a computer chair and giggled with excitement. "Being at work is fun! What else can I do Mimi?" he asked.

"How about you run after Hibari and ask her to bring us some coffee?"

"Yup yup!" He cried, running off tin pursuit of the pink haired young woman.

"Jiro, you can help me sort this paperwork."

"What is all this?"

"They're records describing the recent breach of the Special Zone by the Kowloon children."

"Does this have to be so boring?"

"Ugh! You can be so childish sometimes Jiro!"

The black haired vampire stared at her, his steely eyes glimmering. He knew he should be angry at her for speaking to him, an old blood, in such a disrespectful manner, but for some reason it had the opposite effect on him. He felt the forbidden fires of lust stoking inside his gut. Impulsively, he caught her hand and began massaging her fingers. Heart all aflutter, Mimiko nearly dropped the papers all over the floor.

"Jiro, what are you doing?" His eyes looked worryingly glazed.

"I need to talk to you."

Her heart was racing like mad. "About what?"

"Us."

"Right now?"

"It can't wait."

They moved out into the corridor. People walked past chatting, texting, talking on phones. She couldn't risk them being overheard. Mimiko spotted the storage cupboard and ensured that no one was looking before leading Jiro inside. Hands on her hips she frowned at him. "Alright. What is it? I have to do some work today, so make this quick."

A grin curled his lip revealing the tip of his fang. He pulled her close. "I don't want to waste a single moment with you. I want you."

She blushed and backed away. "In here?"

"Why not?"

"Because this is the storage cupboard, Jiro. It's not exactly what I had in mind for our first time. For my first time."

Jiro looked embarrassed and scratched the back of his awkwardly. "Forgive me Mimiko, I just…it's been a long time since I...and I find it hard to contain myself. I love you."

"I love you too." She hugged him tightly. "Come on," she sighed.

"Wait, there was something else."

"What...?"

He cupped the back of her head and pulled her into a searing kiss, pouring all his love and desire into it. When he reluctantly broke away Mimiko felt rather weak at the knees. She clutched him by the shoulders and stared into his eyes, feeling flushed and light-headed.

"Come on. We'd better go back before the others suspect something." She took his hand and lead him back out into the corridor and back to reality.

"I brought your coffee," said Hibari as she put the tray down on Mimiko's desk. "Where did you two go?"

"Nowhere."

The girl raised an eyebrow and eyed the compromiser and the vampire suspiciously, both of whom looked as guilty as sin. "Yeah right Mimiko. Look, if you want to keep this a secret You might want to keep the office liaisons to a minimum."

Mimiko glowered from beneath her bangs. "I'm warning you Hibari, shut. up!"

A/N Sorry that chapter was a little short! Anyway, thank you for all your kind reviews.
