Thank you so much for your reviews, I loved them. So I've decided to keep this story going for a while to see how well it does. In the mean time you could always check out my other story called "from now on, everything changes" *wink, wink* Some people might see that as begging but I really like to know what people think of my work. So if you have a few minutes have a look and tell me what you think.
As for this story, VampireMaddy pointed out that I was rather vague on Yuuki's and Kaname's background so rather than update on the story I'll right a chapter about their history. By the way, Thanks maddy for the help it really …erm…helped! Lol wow that was predictable ah well.
Just to clear any confusion. Yuuki and Kaname are related in this story (brother and sister) but they don't know that they are and Kaname never saved her because the chairman got there first. Gomen-nasai for being unclear will explain in here….
Ah well on with the show….
Yuuki Cross has not had what most people would call an ordinary life. She is in fact a vampire, a pure-blooded one at that, which puts her alongside the elite of the entire race. Even to Yuuki herself her life is shrouded in mystery.
Her father is the chairman of Cross Academy and is striving for peace between vampires and humans; however, Cross Kaien is only Yuuki's adoptive father. Before Yuuki was awoken as a vampire her memories started on a snowy night in the middle of a dark forest. It was unknown to her what had happened before that night; no matter how hard she tries she cannot remember. Walking through the dark forest alone Yuuki was scared. She walked absentmindedly through the forest in the snow not knowing where she was, how she got there or where she was going.
A voice issued from behind her. "Are you lost little girl?" Yuuki turned and saw a tall man with blood red eyes coming towards her. She stumbled backwards and fell to the floor "Do you mind if I drink your blood?" The vampire asked calmly. Yuuki screamed and the vampire moved closer and closer until he could almost touch her.
Somewhere in the darkness Yuuki heard a gun being drawn and closed her eyes when a shot rang out into the silence of the night. Quaking, Yuuki slowly and cautiously opened her eyes expecting to see the vampire. Instead she saw a tall blond man towering above her, leaning down and extending a hand. The vampire was nowhere to be seen and the place where he stood was now marked with a purple cross in the likeness of a rose. Only a pile of dust was left.
"Are you ok child?" the man said. Yuuki looked up into his kind eyes and nervously took his hand. His smile and the kindness of his face made her trust him.
"Would you like to come with me to somewhere warm?" he asked softly and Yuuki nodded
"Well then let's go". Still holding Yuuki's hand, he walked and Yuuki followed (A/N: by the way I've just re-read that and the chairman seemed a little pervy but it's not meant that way)
So Yuuki was taken in and adopted by Cross Kaien, she attended a local junior school were she met Kuran Kaname and others of his friends. The elite within the class, exclusive and anti-social. However, this acquaintance was short lived as Kaname soon had to withdraw from the class. Being only a small child at the time, Yuuki soon forgot about him and carried on her life as a normal human child. She lived this life until the arrival of Zero Kiryuu, whose family had been slaughtered by the pureblood Hiou Shizuka. Shizuka had bitten Zero and condemned him to a life of pain as he slowly converted into a vampire. When this transformation had taken place it was known he would undoubtedly fall to a level E and die. So Yuuki hid Zero's secret and he lived off blood tablets and Yuukis blood.
When old enough Zero and Yuuki enrolled at Cross academy. Yuuki and Zero grew closer as the years went by, Zero adored Yuuki and always tried to make her happy, and Yuuki respected Zero and always accepted his withdrawn nature and never questioned the things he asked of her. At the time of the introduction of the night class, full of anger and hatred, Zero strongly advised Yuuki to keep her distance from those who studied during the night. And so she did. If she had questioned him and ventured into the world of the night she would have once again discovered Kaname Kuran and possibly changed her life. However, it seems like this was not meant to be. Yuuki acted as guardian of Cross Academy, protecting the vampires of the night class and the humans of the day class and never got involved with the gorgeous beings that passed by her everyday; never asked their names or got to know them.
However, fate it would seem has a cruel sense of humour, as during one year at the academy one of the night class students, Senri Shiki, became possessed by the spirit of his father, a pure-blood vampire. Shikis father, named Rido Kuran, was Kaname's uncle. While on patrol one night Yuuki came into contact with this dangerous vampire and he changed her life forever. Rido bit Yuuki and reawakened the memories from before the night she was rescued, letting her know everything about her past except one important little detail: her fiancée Kaname Kuran. You see Rido is also Yuuki's uncle (making Kaname and Yuuki brother and sister (obviously)) however Rido has been in love with Yuuki ever since she was born and so planned on making Yuuki his bride. What he did not count on was Zero Kiryuu, who killed Rido before Yuuki could commit to anything.
So Yuuki was now awoken as a pure-blood vampire, she knew of her parents and her life as a pure-blood princess but her last name and ancestry remained unknown. Yuuki, who now knew all she had wanted, did not care and let the matter remain unaddressed. Her life continued as normal with both her and Zero using blood tablets as a way of controlling their hunger for blood. Even now, with her transformation into a vampire and her new found thirst for blood she kept her distance from the students of the night class. It remained like this until she moved out of her fathers' house and into her own apartment with her best friend. All was fine until she bumped into a handsome pureblood by the name of Kaname Kuran in an elevator and things started to get heated between the two of them.
How will this meeting affect the rest of Yuukis life? Will the remainder of her memories be awoken? And will they ever admit their feelings for each other and live happily ever after?
Only time will tell.
Born and raised as a pureblood. Kaname Kuran is what everyone expects from a vampire prince. Kind, caring, authoritative, handsome, well mannered and respected by all other vampires. Raised by Juuri and Haruka Kuran, he had a younger sister - Yuuki. She was his betrothed, his one true love. They were destined to be married, to be together for all eternity but someone close to the family betrayed that and turned Kaname's world upside down. Rido, Kaname's uncle, showed up at the Kuran household, determined to claim Yuuki as his own, but this plan was foiled. Haruka sacrificed himself to give his family time and Juuri destroyed herself, in order to erase all of Yuukis memories, and in order to protect Yuuki from her evil uncle. Yuuki was put to sleep and was to live her life as a human until it was safe for her to be awoken by Kaname. Then they would get married and live happily ever after.
When Yuuki awoke she was all alone in the middle of a dark forest, surrounded by snow, and about to be attacked by a level E vampire. Juuri, Haruka and Kaname had a plan for Kaname to be there when Yuuki awoke and remain close to her so that it would be easy for the transformation to take place. However, Kaname was held up by Rido and so could not get to Yuuki in time for her to awaken from her slumber. By the time Kaname had brutally taken care of Rido, to the point of near death, Yuuki had already been rescued by Cross Kaien. Kaname arrived at the place where Yuuki had been and saw Yuuki being led towards a house by the chairman. Looking after them, Kaname felt like his heart had been broken; he knew now that the plan had failed. Everything that was supposed to have happened had been thrown out the proverbial window, and he now had to look after Yuuki from afar and hope to Kami that nothing happened to her. If it did… he would never forgive himself.
Cross Kaien, it turned out, was very pro-vampire. Kaien believed in a world where humans and vampires could co-exist peacefully and so introduced a night class at his academy purely for vampires. Kaname led by example and enrolled. He was soon followed by a host of other noble vampires and so the night class was formed. Kanames real motive was to try and get closer to Yuuki in order to reinstate the plan and once more be able to reawaken the vampire inside her human form. This too, it seemed, was not meant to be. Zero Kiryuu, Yuuki's closest friend had poisoned the mind of the youngster and convinced her to keep her distance from Kaname so despite his best efforts he could not get close enough to Yuuki, and was not there when he had the chance to fix everything.
When Rido turned up at the academy, Kaname instantly knew that all he had worked for was either about to be lost or could be boosted tenfold.
Kaname was, once again, too late. Rido awakened Yuuki and yet somehow managed to keep Kaname hidden from her. To Kaname's delight, Rido met his end with Zero Kiryuu, who killed him when he discovered he had turned Yuuki. However, Kaname could still not get close to Yuuki and when she left for Tokyo he believed that he had missed his chance completely. Could it be that they were never really meant for each other?
Imagine the surprise of the young pureblood when he stumbled across an older Yuuki in his new apartment building.
"A pureblood actually. You seem shocked Yuuki. Did you not know?" Kaname asked calmly but his eyes were still glowing
"No." Yuuki said slightly scared
"Join the club. I did not know about your little secret. Have you always been a vampire, Yuuki?"
Of course Kaname knew as soon as she stepped into the elevator that she was a pureblood and could also tell from the scent of her blood who she was. His heartbeat quickened. She was even more attractive to him then ever before, she was intoxicating; every second he was with her meant that he wanted her more. However, not wanting to seem rude and imposing he pretended to be none the wiser of her condition. (A/N good old Kaname!) As they embraced passionately and he beheld the sight of her toned body pressed against his he knew then that they were destined to be together. When they parted company he was more determined than ever to make her his own. He would do anything to get her and keep her.
How could he win her heart? And what will he do when a familiar silver haired hunter comes back into the picture? Will Kaname be able to keep his jealousy under control?
So basically this story is all about what could have happened if Kaname had not rescued Yuuki that snowy night ten years ago.
Hope you guys liked this little history lesson and that you now (sort of) understand what's happening between them. Ideas are welcome. Read and Review. Hope this clears up any confusion.
Thanks. Toya xx
