Me: HEY GUYS! I'm back with another one-shot! This one is Bad End Night! Hope you enjoy it! I had a hard time figuring out who the characters would be, but it all turned out good! So here's the list!
Ai- Doll Twin #1
Aichi- Doll Twin #2
Yukino- Lady (Daughter)
Wako- Mysterious Figure
I was walking thought the woods trying to find the house that I was supposed to deliver the letter I held.
"It's getting dark…" I muttered to myself. I finally found a path and followed it to a mansion. "What's a house like this doing in the middle of the woods?" I knocked on the rotting door. "Excuse me, is anybody home?
A man with blond hair and what seemed like grey eyes opened the door, "Oh, what is a young lady like you doing out here?"
"Um, well, you see, I was delivering this letter when I got lost…"
"Oh, my my, you have no place to go?"
"Don't call me sir, my name is Miwa Taishi."
"A pleasure to meet you, my name is Lauran." We were interrupted when a boy and a girl came running into the room.
"Hurry, hurry, Aichi!" the girl urged. She had long black hair and deep green eyes.
"I-I'm coming!" the boy replied. He had blue hair with a strange strand sticking out and blue eyes.
"Oof!" The girl bumped into me, "Who are you?"
"This is our guest, Lauran," Miwa explained, "Please treat her nicely."
"Nice to meet you! My name's Ai!"
"A-And my name's Aichi!" Aichi bowed.
"We hope you enjoy your stay!" the said simultaneously.
"Thank you," I smiled.
"We have a guest?" a girl with blond hair and green eyes walked into the room.
"Yeah! Her name is Lauran!" Ai started running circles around us.
"Oh, my name is Tama. Well, it's very late, would you like some tea?"
"That would be great! Thank you!" I sighed.
"You're welcome, dear," Tama walked out of the room to prepare tea.
"I'm going to inform the master and mistress of your presence," Miwa headed into another room. I looked over at Ai and Aichi. Ai was giggling about something and Aichi had a worried smile on his face. I was about to ask what they were talking about when a man with brown hair and the same deep green eyes as Ai walked in, followed by a girl with short brown hair and purple eyes, and a girl with black hair and light green eyes walked in.
"So you're the girl Miwa told us about?" the man asked.
"Yes, sir," I replied.
"It's very nice to meet you, Lauran," the woman smiled, "My name is Suri. This is my husband Kai (why do i keep laughing at the line "this is my husband Kai? xD ), and our adopted daughter Yukino." Kai nodded as Yukino stepped forward a bit to curtsy.
"The pleasure is all mine, Miss Suri, Mister Kai, Miss Yukino," I returned the gesture.
"Here you go dear," Tama returned with the tea.
"Thank you, ma'am."
"Hey, hey!" Ai interrupted, "Why don't we throw a party for Lauran!"
"That's a wonderful idea!" Suri clapped her hands together.
"Miwa and I will start preparations," Tama curtsied before running off to find Miwa.
"Y-You don't have to-" I stuttered.
"Don't worry," Aichi interrupted, "The Mistress wants to."
"It's the least we could do for our guest," Kai added
"I'll be sure to give a toast," Yukino put a hand on my shoulder.
"Thank you," I smiled.
"Ai, Aichi, why don't you show Lauran to her room before we start?" Suri suggested.
"Sure!" they each grabbed on of my hands before dragging me through the halls, "Let's go!" After a minute or two of walking, we finally arrived at a room.
"Here you go!" Ai almost threw me in.
"We hope you enjoy your stay!" Aichi smiled.
"T-Thanks," I tried to catch my breath.
"We're going to help get ready! We'll see you in a bit!" they ran off. I looked around the room. It had a fairly large bed next to the left wall. The nightstand had a lit oil lamp. Across the room, there was an open door, with different dresses with laces and frills. I gagged a little at this. Next to the door, was a mirror with a tabled lined with make-up. I sighed and walked into the closet to find something to wear. I settled on the least frilly dress. It was cream, with a little lace at the end of the skirt and the sleeves, I put a red shawl over it and tied it with a black bow. I also tied my hair up into a ponytail with a black ribbon and slipped on black flats before opening the door and heading back to the main room.
"Is everything going according to the script?" Kai asked.
"Yes, sir," I replied as I bowed.
"Let's make the streamers pink!" Ai shouted while running around and throwing pink steamers everywhere.
"A-Ai!" Aichi chased after her.
"Sure, we can make the streamers pink," Suri started hanging them up.
"YAY!" Ai cheered as she suddenly stopped causing Aichi to run into her. It ended up with them lying in a mess on the floor tangled in streamers. We all sighed.
"Let's get them out," Miwa ran a hand through his hair as I nodded.
"Yukino, would you get the wine from the cellar?" Kai asked.
"Yes, father," Yukino hurried away to get the wine.
"Why can't you be as helpful as Yukino?" Miwa asked after we got them untangled.
"Hey!" Ai jumped onto Miwa while pelting him with punches on his back.
"Ow! Hey! Ow! I'm! Ow! Sorry! Ow!"
"You better be!" Ai jumped off of him.
"That wasn't very nice," Aichi told her.
"He called me useless!"
"I'm sure he didn't mean it," I patted her head.
"I'm back," Yukino jogged in with a few bottles of wine in her arms.
"Alright," Suri sighed as she opened up the script on the table, "Looks like everything is ready! Our guest should be back any minute! Everyone in your places!" She quickly put the script on the shelf with all the other books we had. Just as she said, cautiously Lauran walked in with a surprised look on her face.
I slowly walked into the main room. The 'family' surrounded a tabled lined with food and wine glasses. I gasped as I walked over.
"How did they get all of this ready so fast?" I thought.
"It looks amazing," I awed.
"Thank you dear," Tama smiled.
"Would you like some wine?" Miwa asked.
"I'm a little too young to drink, aren't I?" I asked.
"Just enough for a toast," Ai handed me a glass that was only one forth filled.
"To our wonderful guest Lauran!" Yukino gave a slight smile. Everyone clinked their glasses together and took a sip. Alcohol is definitely not the best thing in the world, but it's stomach-able… For the rest of the night, we all chatted and enjoyed the food that Tama cooked, so it was almost midnight by the time we all went to bed.
"G'night Lauran!" Ai glomped me as Aichi gave me a small hug.
"Goodnight guys," I smiled before going to bed.
"That was the best sleep I've had in a while," I said to myself. I looked out the window, expecting to see the bright sun, but the glowing moon and stars welcomed me instead. "W-What?" I started panicking and ran out of the room, trying to find someone who could tell me what was going on! When I went into the main room, I saw Ai and Aichi looking at the grandfather clock.
"Hey! Guys, do you know what's going on?" I asked.
"Should we tell her?" Ai asked Aichi.
"She has the right to know the secret," Aichi answered before they both turned to look at me.
"Look, the clock hands! They froze at five minutes before midnight!" they pointed at the clock. And they were right! I froze for a second. What?! How is that possible? How could time just freeze? I felt like I had no control over my body, so I just ran. After a little bit, I stopped to lean against the wall, but it caved in. Well looks like I found another secret. I got up and dusted myself off. What I saw made me even more scared than I was before.
"Jesus," I whispered. The room was lined with coffins. Rows and Rows of them filled the whole room.
"Oh dear," I heard Suri and turned to see everyone.
"So you saw it," Kai sighed.
"Danger! Danger!" Aichi warned.
"Don't be scared, please?" Yukino requested. I started to run, but Ai blocked my path.
"Where are you going?" she asked.
"Where, indeed," Miwa chuckled. I managed to run past them.
"Please, wait~!" they all called, "You are the lead actress!" Lead actress? What are they talking about? I ran as fast as I could, but the caught up to me once we got to the main room and surrounded me. What were they going to do? Killing me was the first thing that came to mind.
"What can I do to go home?!" I fell to the floor and started sobbing.
"Once the play is over," Kai and Suri started.
"Then you shall return," Miwa and Tama finished.
"You get to decide how it ends," Yukino explained.
"So it's all up to you!" Aichi and Ai added.
"Up to me, huh?" I stopped crying and pushed pass them to the grandfather clock. I broke the glass and grabbed the hands. Nice and sharp. I found it! "The ending I choose is the one where you all die! I am the lead actress after all! I get to choose what happens here!" I started chasing after them. My first victim was Yukino.
"Run for your lives!" Tama shouted, "Just forget about the play and all of your lines!"
"Where are you going?" I asked, "The fun is just starting!" I got her next and slowly finished them off, one by one. I laughed, probably madly from someone else's point of view. I looked at my bloodstained hands and smiled.
"I can finally go home," I whispered.
"Not quite," a girl with black hair and blonde tips walked into the room. One of her eyes was green and the other was gold.
"What are you talking about? The play is over, isn't it?"
"Well, all the stories I write have a happy ending!" She picked up the letter as a tear left her gold eye. "Shall we try this again? Of course, I'm going to have to wipe your memories. Yes, let's hope you'll get it right next time!" The world went white and the play started over again.(oooooooo I'm the author icic.)
Me: Ah, depressingly upbeat songs. There are still two songs that are released for this series, so I'm going to do those two later! I'll see you guys next time!
