You kept looking forward and not turned your head to look at them. You kept telling to yourself that you wouldn’t cry but it was impossible. Ciel and Sebastian were in front of the carriage’s door waiting for you. With every step you took tears threaten to come out. When you were finally beside Sebastian who gave you a sweet smile you turned to gaze your three friends. They were in front of the grand gate of the mansion waving at you and your other two eternal companions.
“It’s time to go ____.” Sebastian whispered to your ear and you slowly nodded not taking your eyes away from those three clumsy servants. He helped Ciel to get on the carriage and tapped your shoulder to tell you that it was time. You looked at the ground with sad eyes and got into the carriage with the young butler’s help.
You sat across your young master and kept your gaze at the ground. You still couldn’t believe it that you were leaving the house you tried so hard to save from all the bad and misfortune things that it was happening. You felt someone else getting into the carriage and taking his seat beside you. You lift your gaze from the floor and saw that Sebastian was inside the carriage which meant that it was for you to say good-bye.
Before you had time to react or anything the carriage began to move. You just stood there frozen. No tears, no smiles nothing. Before you were too far away from the grand door you heard someone calling your name desperately. You shook your head snapping back to reality and looked back at the mansion’s door. You saw everyone’s smiles as they waved you and you smiled at them.
“Be careful!” the clumsy maiden shouted.
“Take care.” The strong outgrown child shouted.
“Don’t mess up!” the chef smile shouting. You smiled at them and waved good-bye. That was the last time you saw them alive.
You slowly opened your tired eyes and turned your head slowly to the right and gazed outside the window. You were moving. Pictures of large green lands flashed in front of your ____ eyes. You were boarded on a train which was heading at Japan. You tried to get up but you felt something heavy at your lap. You gaze down and saw Ciel’s head resting at your lap. You smiled at the view and gently pushed some straight locks of hair out of his face.
Ciel was a demon like Sebastian. You three kept traveling around the world at your human forms since you had time to spend. All eternity for example. Well Ciel and Sebastian were demons but you were a bit different from them. You were half Shimigami. Your father was one but he died from something which you didn’t really know. Your mother died when she gave birth to you. Because of your nature your lifespan had stopped at the age of sixteen. You weren’t getting any older. As for your young master you couldn’t say the same. He had grown to a handsome teenager who anyone would fall for. Sebastian was still the same as ever. And yes you meant that he was handsome as ever.
You felt a movement and turned your attention to the young boy at your lap. He slowly opened his sleepy eyes showing his red ones and not the blue. He looked at you for a moment and gave you a quick smile. His eyes turned to his original color and lifted his head from your lap. “Did you sleep well master?” you asked and he rubbed the back of his neck.
“Pretty well ____.” He said and turned his gaze at you. “And don’t call me master.” He said with a serious tune. You titled your head a bit and gave him an innocent look.
“And how should I address you? You are my master after all.” You said and he shook his head in disappointment.
“Truly ___ I didn’t expect that from you. Only Sebastian sweet talking to people.” He said and you silently giggled. “Besides I have adopted you as my little sister ages ago. I don’t understand why you are keeping the formalities between us.” He said and you sighed. It was true that Ciel indeed was your brother for some time now. He said that he thought at you as part of the family. And you were grateful to him that he accepted you. Actually you did love him in some way. But not the way you could love someone to marry him for example. You just were too fond to him.
“Well young master ____ was trying to be polite.” You heard someone’s voice and turned your head to that direction. You saw Sebastian sitting with crossed arms and legs. He wasn’t wearing his butler uniform but something casual. He looked so … mortal and human.
“I already know that.” Ciel complained and placed his fingertips at his forehead. “Stop correcting me will you.” He said with an angry voice. Sebastian just smirked and looked at you causing you to blush a little.
“Young Master enjoyed his little nap but you dear ____ did you enjoy yours?” he said and his smirked disappeared and was replace by a worry look. Not wanted to worry your ‘big brother’ and your friend you smiled and looked outside.
“It could worse. It could be better.” You whispered and kept your gaze outside the window not wanting to make an eye contact with those demonic eyes which frighten you. You heard one of Ciel’s famous sighs but you didn’t pay attention to it. “By the way where are we going?” you said still not looking at them.
“So you are changing the topic. Very well!” Sebastian said. “We are going to Japan because people at England were getting a bit suspicious.” He said and you looked back at him waiting for him to continue his explanation. “I have already found a mansion for us.” He said and Ciel looked at you and smiled but he quickly turned his attention back to his butler.
“Good job Sebastian.” He said and Sebastian would say his usual phrase but you stopped him.
“But dear brother he is one hell of a butler.” You said and Sebastian at first was shocked but he smiled in the end.
“Indeed my fair lady.” He said and you turned your gaze back at the view outside the window. You kept thinking that dream you just waken up from. It was the last time you saw your friends alive and well. The next time you saw them it was a visit at their graves. Yes they were long gone and you never had the time to say good-bye. It was your only regret. You felt someone shaking your shoulder to grab your attention. You turned your head to face that somebody and you saw Ciel.
“Let’s go! The train stopped.” He said and you looked around curious. Everyone was getting out of the train. You were lost in your thoughts and didn’t notice that it had stopped.
Ciel took your hand and leaded you out of the train. You heard people whispering about you two and you looked at the floor. You didn’t like the attention one bit. But you knew it was impossible not to have it. Ciel was far too handsome for his ‘human’ years and Sebastian was so dreamy that every girl around you could have nosebleed. You from the other hand preferred to remain forever I their shadow and protected them when they needed you.
When you lifted your gaze to see Ciel you noticed that he actually looked as your bigger brother. He was taller than you and the way he usually treated you was like a big brother would. “Sebastian is waiting for us in front of the grand gates.” He said still holding your hand dragging you with him. “Don’t let go of my hand.” He said a bit louder this time and he tightened his hold. “I don’t want to lose okay?” he said with a small smile that made you blush a little. Ciel was a kind person. You were lucky that he cared for you as much as he did. He didn’t show it often but there were times like this that made you wonder if Ciel was just pretending in front of other people and you were the only person he felt safe to be himself. There was one time that he said to you that you reminded him his mother.
You lifted your eyes from the floor and looked forward. Your eyes widened by the sight you saw. A big wave of people came towards you and as you were passing through avoiding them your hand slipped from Ciel’s hold and you separated from each other. You heard Ciel calling your name many times over but you couldn’t see him anywhere. Someone came with high speed and pushed so hard that you fell on the floor. You were scarred. You had never separated from Ciel or Sebastian before. Now you were alone and you had no idea where you were. Tears were about to come out of your eyes until you saw a hand in front of your face. “Are you ok Miss?” you heard someone’s voice and looked up.
It was a young teenage boy at your age or maybe more. He had black hair like Sebastian and black eyes. He was wearing a pair of glasses and he was dressed at a casual way. He was a bit tall maybe taller than Ciel himself but he was somehow … nice. You reached out for his head and you took it. He helped you to stand up and smiled at you. “What are you doing here? Maybe I can help you.” he said and you nodded.
“I came here with my ma- brother and my friend. But I got separated from them somehow.” You said and looked at the floor again. “I am so sorry for bother you. I will find them.” You said and bowed. “Thank you for your help.” You said without taking your eyes from the floor.
“Don’t you worry. I will help you finding them.” He said and you quickly lift your eyes from the floor to look at him only to find him staring at you.
“You would? Thank you.” You said and smiled at him sweetly. A small blush appeared at his cheeks but you were too happy to notice it. Suddenly someone shouted to you and both of you turned your gaze to that direction. You saw Sebastian running towards you. Your smiled widened as the young butler approached you stopping a few steps away from you.
“____? Thank the god you are alright.” He said and looked at the young teen besides you. But his look was cold. “Who is this ___?” he said smiling. But you knew that it was a fake one. This was unusual.
“He came to my rescue. He helped me.” You said with a full smile which made Sebastian sighed in relief. He turned his gaze back at the teenager and bowed.
“Thank you for your assistance. The young lady means a lot to the young master and me.” He said and your heart beat faster than before. A blush appeared at your cheeks and you turned your head a little to hide it.
“It was nothing. The young miss needed help so I offered.” He said and you turned to look at him. He smiled and took your hand and kissed gently. Your cheeks were on fire. You watched Sebastian from the corner of your eye and you saw that his eyes were pink. You knew that he was angry. The young boy backed away and bowed. “Until next time young lady.” He said and walked away without any other word.
You just stood there shocked and placed your hand which he hold a moment ago close to your heart. ‘What was that?’ you thought and sighed.
“_____!” you heard Sebastian’s voice and turned your gaze to him. His eyes were no longer glowing dangerously but you had a feeling that he still was angry with you. “The young master is waiting for us.” He said and turned your back to you. “Come.” He said but you didn’t move. You were frightened. The way he spoke to you or treated you right now was different like you had done something bad and he punished you. “I’m not going to repeat myself ____. I said come.” You nodded and started following him.
You walked in silence. After a while you lifted your gaze from the floor you saw Ciel and ran to him. When you were close enough you jumped and hugged him. Ciel quickly hugged you back and whispered to your ear. “You baka! What were you thinking?” he said and your eyes widened.
“Ciel …” you whispered. He hugged you tighter like his life was depended on you.
“What would happen if …” he whispered but he stopped in the middle of the sentence. He broke the hug and looked straight into your eyes. “This is an order ___. You won’t get separated from us ever again.” He said and you nodded unable to speak. Ciel turned his gaze at Sebastian. “Come one Sebastian take us to our new ‘home.’” He said and Sebastian placed his hand at his chest and bowed.
“Yes, my lord.” He said and walked to the car. He opened the door and Ciel got in. Before you got in however you looked at the young butler and bowed quickly as an apology. He smiled and nodded. “Don’t you worry my lady.” He said and you got in. He closed the door and smirked. “I have no intention to let you go.”
You kept staring out of the window watching the moving figures come and go. You had lived for some centuries now but still you couldn’t understand why humans lived the way they did. It was interesting but at the same time boring for someone like you. Or you had lived too long and you had lost the purpose of your life. You sighed and continued looking outside the window. “Are we going to be there soon?” you asked and you swore that you heard Sebastian chuckled.
“My, my ____. You are quite impatient for someone who have lived that long.” He said and you sighed in annoyance. “Master! Are you okay?” he said and you turned your attention to your ‘brother’. He was asleep. You placed the palm of your hand in front of your mouth and giggled. You gently placed his head at your lap and pat him.
“He’s asleep.” You whispered. Sebastian sighed but you only kept smiling as you watched your master’s sleeping figure.
“He just woke up.” He said and you silently laughed.
“But he is so cute.” You said and Sebastian laughed.
“Don’t let him hearing you saying that. He is going to kill you.” He said and you shook your head.
“I am not scared.” You said and looked Sebastian’s back. “I know I’ll have you to protect me.” You said with a sweet innocent smile. Suddenly the car stopped but before you had time to look outside to see where you were Sebastian turned to you with his eyes turned pink. He had a smirk at his lips that made him scary but at the same time … hot.
“Is that why you are so brave?” he said and placed his hand under your chin keeping your eyes only to him. “I am a demon my dear lady.” He said and leaned closer. “And that means you can trust me because …” your eyes widened as he came closer. “ … I am quite unpredictable.” He finished and leaned even closer with your lips inches apart from each other.
The moment your lips were about to meet, you felt a movement at your lap. You and Sebastian looked at your young master who was about to open his eyes. Sebastian’s eyes turned to their usual color and turned his back at you once more. Ciel opened his eyes and gazes up to you. He blushed and quickly stood up from your lap. You giggled and gave him a kind smile that made his blush worse than before. “Hi there!” you said and he cleared his throat.
“Sebastian! How long until we reached our new mansion?” he said and Sebastian turned to face him.
“We are here my lord and young lady.” He said and turned his gaze to you making you blush.
You stepped outside the car and looked around amazed. The house was bigger than the one you used lived. You turned your attention to Ciel who was unemotional as ever. He turned his gaze to Sebastian who was standing behind him. “Come on Sebastian we have to get ready for tomorrow’s work.” He said and Sebastian instead of nodding he … smirked.
“Indeed my lord. You and ___ should get ready for your first day at school.” He said and smiled to you. You and Ciel exchange glances to make sure that you heard right and turned your gazes back to Sebastian.
“SCHOOL?” you shouted at the same time.
