I do not own DGM. But I would love it if I do.
"Allen! The chief is looking for you again!" Reever called.
The white-haired boy made an effort to swallow his food before replying with a yes. Once he'd gobbled up all his food as quickly as possible, he rushed to the office.
The floor was, as always, carpeted in papers, and the supervisor was sleeping in his pile of books. "Good morning, Allen-kun." The shorthaired girl smiled sweetly at him. She looked at his currently long hair that had been caused by some unknown chemical made by the science department and added, "You look good with long hair."
Allen nodded back at her, smiling. Oh, Lenalee's hair has grown longer.
"Hey Chief, Lenalee's going to get married," the science department head whispered into the sleeping man's ear.
The man woke up and hugged the blushing girl. "No! Lenalee! How could you not tell your brother!" he sobbed at the top of his lungs.
"Nii-san, I'm not going to get married that early!" She made an awkward attempt to shove him away.
Allen grinned to himself. No matter how many times he saw that scene, it always amazed him how Komui would wake up at the idea of his precious sister being married off. "You called for me, Komui-san?"
"Oh yes, I got a mission for you and Lenalee. Both of you will attend a masquerade ball in London. I want both of you to report back to me if you noticed anything strange there. There have reports of people disappearing, our Finders included. During the ball, you shall be Lenalee's partner," the chief read out of the report he was holding. "Both of you will depart one hour later. Lenalee, you go pack your things first."
"Okay, nii-san. I'll see you later at the port Allen-kun." And with that, she walked out of the office.
"Allen-kun, I know it's irresponsible of me, but I'd like to ask you to protect Lenalee if anything happens. I believe that you'll keep her safe," Komui said seriously. He then bowed deeply. "I'll trust Lenalee in your care then, Allen-kun."
"I understand. I will protect Lenalee with my life," the boy vowed.
"Still, come back in one piece, okay?" the older brother smiled at Allen. "Well, you should go and pack up your things for the trip. Oh, and one more thing." Komui dug in his mountain of paper and took out a big box. "These are your clothes for the ball."
Allen took the box and thanked Komui. With the chief's well wishes, Allen left the office.
The two exorcists then left the Black Order before sundown.
"Oh, we're jumping on trains again." Allen grinned while running towards a suspended bridge with Lenalee behind him.
"Okay!" Lenalee giggled as she leapt down on the moving train, followed by Allen.
As they fell, their impact made a dent on the train roof, causing the poor passengers inside quite a bit of surprise.
"We're from the Black Order," Allen told the stunned conductor upon entering the train. "Please give us a compartment."
"Yes sir. Right away." The man bowed deeply and showed them the way to their cabin in the first car. "Sir, we will reach London tomorrow at approximately three in the afternoon," the conductor told Allen. He paused to make sure he wasn't needed for something else, then again bowed deeply and walked away.
The cabin was the grandest Allen had seen so far. It had a bunk bed, a lavatory, a big comfy armchair and a bedside table. Even Lenalee was amazed at its size.
Allen lowered his hood and placed the luggage in a corner next to their beds. He then slumped into the armchair with a sigh. A golden golem flew out of the sleeve of his newly made uniform.
"Tim! Where have you been?" Allen asked while the flying ball fluttered happily around Allen's head. As soon as he finished his question, a loud growl came from Allen's stomach.
"Allen-kun? Are you hungry?" Lenalee asked.
"Yes." The boy blushed in minor embarrassment.
Lenalee giggled slightly at the white-haired boy's reaction. He's so adorable when he does that.
Like a gentleman, Allen pulled out Lenalee's seat for her with a smile. The girl sat down, glad that she had come after all.
"Good evening. I am Edward, your waiter for this evening." The man was dressed to perfection. "May I take your order, miss?" He flashed his perfect white teeth at Lenalee.
This guy is clearly hitting Lenalee. Now I really wish Komui-san was here. Allen glared at the waiter with jealous eyes.
Lenalee looked at the menu. "Then, I'd like to have pasta with mushroom sauce, and after that, I like to have a piece of chocolate cake for dessert."
"What about you, sir?" the waiter turned to Allen.
Allen scanned the menu, picking out most of his favorites. "May I have mapo tofu, Hawaiian pizza, beef stew, fish head curry, fish and chips, fries, tempura soba, unagi, onion soup, beef lasagna, a bowl of rice, and for the desert, I want 20 sticks of mitarashi dango?" Allen rattled off.
"O-okay, sir. Please wait a moment while we prepare the food." The waiter gave a nervous smile as he bowed and walked away.
This time, a waitress approached them. "What would you like to drink?"
"Sparkling juice would be nice. Right, Allen-kun?" Lenalee asked.
"Of course," the boy replied.
The waitress nodded and went to get glasses and a bottle of sparkling juice. She filled up both glasses, then bowed and walked off.
"Itadakimasu!" Allen happily gorged down all his food.
"Geez Allen-kun, you're going to get indigestion if you eat this fast." Lenalee giggled, holding up her fork. She twirled the pasta elegantly like a rich young lady.
The boy had a hard time swallowing the food in his mouth before replying Lenalee. "I'm hungry, Lenalee," he whined. Picking up his chopsticks, he helped himself to the upcoming meals served by the amazed waiters.
Lenalee chuckled and carried on twirling her pasta. "Hey, Allen-kun. Have you heard anything from General Cross? Ever since that incident?" Lenalee asked softly, afraid of Allen's reaction upon hearing his master's name.
The boy in his red uniform slowly set down his chopsticks, looking directly into Lenalee's eyes. "No..."
"I see..." Lenalee's voiced tailed off. As I expected. Allen-kun's still recovering from the shock of General Cross going MIA... She sighed and continued eating.
It took less than an hour for the both of them to finish their meals. "Oh! The food was excellent! I'm so full that I can barely walk!" Allen rubbed his bloated stomach with satisfaction.
"Allen-kun, you've eaten way too much again," Lenalee commented.
"I can't help it," Allen replied, not at all offended.
They strolled back to their cabin and Allen invited Lenalee to change into her nightwear first, as he dropped into the big comfy crouch and played with timcampy.
After 5 minutes, Lenalee walked out of the toilet, dawned in a big baggy shirt with shorts. Allen looked up and saw Lenalee sitting next to him giggling at the boy who was playing with his golem; his face flushed red as he realized that Lenalee's chest was very close to his shoulder. The boy quickly stood up, grabbed a towel on the bed and rushed into the toilet before Lenalee could notice that he was blushing.
Shocked by Allen's reaction, Lenalee looked at the flying golden golem who blushed in place of its master, the girl giggled softy to herself.
The boy came out of the washroom in newly washed clothes. His eye caught Lenalee's, who was still playing with Timcampy. He nodded at her and smiled as he threw the used towel to one corner of the room.
"It's getting late Lenalee, let's sleep. Good night." Allen smiled and climbed to the top bunk bed and became quiet.
"Good night, Allen-kun." Lenalee said and turned off the lights and went to bed and slept.
That night, Lenalee had a dream. The dream was totally different, unlike her usual nightmare on the world's end. She dreamed about herself, playing and skipping in a garden of lilies, one of her favourite flowers. She could see people looking at her, laughing and chuckling. Her brother looked totally different, he was not wearing his hat, spectacles, grew out his hair and looked much more matured.
Suddenly, she heard someone calling her name. Happily, she turned around and saw a guy running towards her. The person has white hair tied back in a ponytail and a scar over his left eye. It is Allen, but he looked 2 years older, he had become more matured looking. Lenalee stared at that Allen, as though he was an angel. Lenalee then started running towards him, arms spread out wide. They then ran into each others arms. She heard Allen whispering "I love you, Lenalee" in her ear and felt Allen's lips crushing on hers. The gale then swept up the lilies' pollen, the couples' hair danced gracefully in the breeze…
