Here it is, the last chapter for this story. Sorry that all characters may seem very OOC, but in my defense... i was in an interesting? mood and it just happened to affect my writing, but then again isn't that how character's usually act as wel, by how we feel. Enjoy!
"Well, Hokuto-sama. It seems today may be our last day together working as a team", Sebastian says as he takes down the bag Hokuto decided to shove Subaru's outfit he would wear today in.
"It seems so, huh", Hokuto says with a pout, "And I was really starting to enjoy having a butler around. Where were you in the year 1990 when I needed you?"
Sebastian gives a chuckle as he starts pulling out the clothes, "Back in my dimension, perhaps with another master."
Hokuto thinks this over as she sits down on her brother's bed, "How did you hear of the Wish-granting Witch, Yuko?"
"Well, I'd presume all magical beings would know of her. After all, she is well-liked."
Hokuto sighs as she helps match up the clothes with Sebastian, "I just hope this works. I would blame myself more if Subaru were to get more hurt."
Sebastian looks at her for a while before he sighs as well. He uses his hand to lift her ghostly chin up so she was looking at him. Her eyes were glistening with un-shed tears. "You shouldn't be blaming yourself, at all, Hokuto-sama. You didn't know any of this was going to happen."
"But that's the thing! I did know this would happen!", Hokuto says jerking her face away, finally letting her tears fall, "Well, I didn't know it was going to happen, but I had a feeling it was and I just edged them on to get more close."
Sebastian wiped Hokuto's tears away; he never did like to see a woman cry, "Hokuto-sama, what happened back then happened. There's no changing the past, no matter how hard we want it to. The best thing to do is to leave the past behind and move on."
Hokuto looks up to Sebastian, until she starts crying again and hugs the butler around the waist. Sebastian holds her in an embrace as she continues to cry in his chest. After a moment of silent comfort, Hokuto pulls out and wipes her tears, "Thank you, Sebastian. For everything. You're the kindest demon I've ever met."
Sebastian chuckles, "I wouldn't be so sure of that."
Hokuto finally shows a small smile, "If you weren't, then you wouldn't have tried cheering me up."
"I could've been doing so for my own motives, though."
Hokuto shakes her head, "Even if it's for your own gain, you still did a good thing." Sebastian thinks this over as Hokuto checks the clothes over one more time, "Ok. I think this is ready. I'll go get my brother from Kamui's room and you just get ready, ok?"
"Pocky? That's all you got for her? Pocky?" Subaru asks in disbelief as he holds up a box of chocolate pocky.
"The girl's crazy for it, Subaru. I didn't know what else to get her", Kamui says shrugging.
Subaru shakes his head as he begins wrapping the box in wrapping paper, "Well, at least you didn't get her a lingerie."
"Hey, Karen-san's a soap land girl. It seemed fitting."
"Tsk", Subaru placed the wrapped pocky along with the other wrapped gifts.
"I can't believe tomorrow's Christmas. This year is going by so fast. Before we know it, the Promise Day will be here", Kamui sets the last present to get wrapped down as he brought his knees to his chest and wrapped his arms around them.
Subaru looks at him concerned as he goes over and wraps his arms around the youth as well, "Don't worry, Kamui. I'll be right there beside you, protecting you no matter what."
Kamui lays his head against Subaru's chest as he takes a deep breathe. He really hoped Subaru was telling him the truth, "Do you promise?"
Subaru looks down at the youth. His amethyst eyes were closed and he was breathing calmly. Subaru swore Kamui started to glow like an angel, an angel who really did need protecting. Subaru kisses the top of Kamui's head, "I promise."
A blush comes from the Angel's face as he digs his head in Subaru's chest, "Thank you."
"Subu-chan! Can you come with me quickly?" Hokuto asks, floating up to Kamui's door. She sees her brother comforting Kamui and instantly regrets interrupting, "Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean-"
"It's alright, Hokuto-chan. What did you need", Subaru asks, letting go of the teen and standing up.
"I need to show you something in your room quickly."
Subaru nods his head and starts walking out, "I'll be right back, Kamui." Kamui nods his head as he goes back to wrapping the gift. "So what did you need to-"
"Hey! Hokuto! Sebastian! Let go!" As soon as Subaru stepped in his room, Sebastian had grabbed both Subaru's wrists as Hokuto grabbed his feet and dragged him over to his bed. Sebastian took off the Onmyouji's trench coat with his ofuda and handed it to Hokuto, who threw it in the back of Subaru's closet. Next, Sebastian proceeded to take off all of Subaru's clothes as Hokuto had instructed and started to put on the new clothes.
A huge blush came over Subaru's face, "H-hey! Wh-wh-wha-wha-what do you think yo-you-you-you're doing? St-stop it!"
"Oh, don't worry, Subu-chan. We're just getting you all pretty up!" Hokuto exclaims bringing out the wrapping paper.
Sebastian had just finished dressing Subaru as Subaru looked at Hokuto with wide eyes, "That's the wrapping paper you got yesterday, isn't it?"
Hokuto's smile grew into an evil smirk, "You know it."
Subaru backed up on the bed as he tried getting away, "Don't you dare use that as-as-…" Sebastian tapped on Subaru's forehead which caused the man to fall into a deep sleep.
"Thank you, Sebastian", Hokuto says getting started on wrapping Subaru's upper body.
"Of course, Hokuto-sama", Sebastian says working on wrapping Subaru's legs. Once they finished wrapping up Subaru from neck to feet, Sebastian flung Subaru over his shoulder and grabbed a box full of decorations and other stuff. Hokuto opened the window of Subaru's room and they took off into the sunset horizon. When they got to their destination, Sebastian opened up the penthouse window and saw no body was home.
The two immediately got to work starting off by placing the still unconscious wrapped Subaru on the leather couch and hanging something over him. They placed light around the living room that when turned on, only dimmed and took out bowls filled with cherries, whip cream, and chocolate syrup. The last thing they did was place a note tied to Subaru's chest with a dark blue ribbon.
"That should do it. I hope Sei-chan loves what I did for him", Hokuto says while dusting her hands.
"I'm sure he will. We should probably get out of here, though. It's near midnight and he could be home any minute now", Sebastian says as he disposes of the box and wrapping paper. Hokuto nods and they make their way to the window. Before they are able to leave though, the television suddenly turns on.
"Hold it, you two. Your time is up and it's time for you to go back to where you belong", Yuko says, looking around the room, "I must say, you did an excellent job with the Sakurazukamori's place."
Hokuto nods her head as she floats back to the television, "Thank you, Yuko. Must we be returning now, though?"
"Yes. I'm sorry, but your wish has now been fulfilled. It's time to leave. Besides, Sebastian's master has been nagging non-stop about him not being there."
"I see he's gotten him-self in yet another situation then", Sebastian says with a smirk. Yuko nods. "Hugh. It seems I will be behind schedule then in getting ready for the new year. Oh well, I'll just have to work three times harder." The wind begins to pick up as it encircles around Sebastian. He bows to Hokuto one more time, "It was an honor to serve as your butler, Hokuto-chan. Good bye."
She sadly waves her hand, "Goodbye, Sebastian."
"Now, Hokuto-chan. Let's talk about your price."
Hokuto looks back to Yuko and nods her head, "What is my price?"
"In another dimension, another pair of twins needs your help. They need help in trying to pair up two of their friends. Their names are Hitachiin Hikaru and Kaoru. I wish you the best of luck with these two." The television blacks out and once again the wind picks up.
A moan is heard from the couch, "Ho-kuto-chan?"
Hokuto turns around to see her brother's head lift up slowly. She waves sadly at him and says before she disappears, "Hopefully I'll see you soon, Subu-chan. I love you, never forget that!"
His head still aching from the spell, Subaru watches as his sister is taken away from him once again. "Ho-kuto-chan." He tries reaching out to the space that use to have his sister, but to no avail. He gives one final struggle, then blacks out.
He came home not too long after Yuko sent Hokuto and Sebastian away so when he saw his Subaru-kun asleep on the couch tied up in wrapping paper with the words "Innocent Un-touched Virgin", Seishirou made a mental note to thank the Sumeragi girl and the demon butler later. Seishirou kneeled down to where Subaru's face was and stroked it lovingly. He looked so peaceful while in sleep.
"They probably did something to him involving magic", Seishirou said to himself as he noticed the note tied on Subaru's chest. He took it out and read it.
As promised, here is mine and Subaru's Christmas gift to you. Subaru should be waking up about now so feel free to un-wrap him and start putting on the toppings I left for you. The ribbon that was holding this note can also be used for *cough* other purposes and I'm sure you'll understand what I mean once you look at Subu-chan's wrists. Anyways, I've left my brother in your hands so if you do anything, like provoke my spell and I see you in the afterlife without Subaru, I'm going to murder you again and I don't care I fit's impossible because I'll make it possible. By the time you read this it should be midnight or so, so Merry Christmas! Sebastian and I are gone already so I won't be seeing you anytime soon. I wish you the best of luck with my brother. Don't screw it up like the idiot I know you are.
Your future sister-in-law,
P.S. Told you I'd have everything prepared."
Seishirou smiles down at the letter, then looks to the clock in his kitchen and as Hokuto said, it was midnight, Christmas Day. A moan came from the unconscious body and Seishirou turns his attention back to it. Subaru begins to open his eyes as he yawns.
Seishirou smiles as he brushes the younger man's bangs out of his face, "Merry Christmas, Subaru-kun."
Subaru blinks as he continues to fully wake up, "Good morning, Seishirou-san. Where's Hokuto-chan?"
"She left already. Probably back to the afterlife."
Subaru sits up as fast as he could in his circumstances, "What?"
Seishirou puts a hand on Subaru's chest and lays him back down, "Calm down, Subaru-kun. She'll be before your eyes before you know it."
"Why? Are you finally going to fulfill my heart's wish and kill me?"
Seishirou looks at the boy shocked, "Isn't your heart's desire to kill me, though?"
Subaru shakes his head as he looks at the man, "No. Even though you did kill my sister and broke me mentally and physically, I still wanted to die by your hands. After all, it is a beautiful thing to die-"
"By the hands of the one you love", Seishirou says finishing off for Subaru. Subaru nods his head as he looks down.
The Sumeragi finally realized the position he's in and his checks flame up, "Seishirou-san!"
Seishirou covers his ears as he flinches away, "Please, Subaru-kun, not so loud. It is only midnight." Seishirou noticed Subaru struggling and helped him rip off the wrapping paper and threw the ribbon aside.
Seishirou stared at Subaru and Subaru just blushed more. What Subaru was wearing really blowed Seishirou away.
Subaru has a headband on his head with a Holy star on each side. A collar was placed around the Sumeragi's neck with the word "Snowflake" on it. He was wearing a dark blue with snowflakes on it and a white sleeve shirt under. Tight black leather pants and dark blue socks with snowflakes on it as well finished the ensemble. Seishirou then understood what Hokuto meant by using the dark blue ribbon with the things on Subaru's wrists. On Subaru's wrists were leather cuffs and metal hoops hanging on the side.
Seishirou continued to stare in awe as Subaru blushed more, "Uh…Seishirou-san. Sis you really think that I wanted to kill you all this time."
Seishirou snapped out of his gaze as he looked at Subaru's emerald eyes. The color of his eyes seemed to pop out more, "Yes. I did. I mean, you said yourself, I killed your beloved sister and I broke you mentally and physically. How could you still love me?"
Subaru shrugged, "I honestly don't know. I did try hating you and I did want to feel anger toward you for the past nine years, but-but I just… couldn't. Love is a funny thing, Seishirou-san. I love you and that's never going to change, no matter what." Subaru reached up and pulled off Seishirou's sunglasses so that now emerald could clash with amber-white mismatched eyes, "I'll always love you."
Seishirou searched in Subaru's eyes and of course saw nothing but honesty. Seishirou sighed in defeat, "If you're going to be honest, I may well be too. I've been lying to myself, as well, for the past nine years." Subaru looked at him questioningly and was about to say something until Seishirou caught him off, "Hear me out. The thing I've been lying about is me winning the bet. I was too stubborn to admit it, but I did lose and you did succeed in making me feel. I may not have realized it, but from the first time I saw you under the sakura tree when I was eighteen, I fell in love with you. I've loved you from the very beginning and I was too stubborn to admit it. But now, I'm not. I love you, Sumeragi Subaru, and nothing will ever stop that."
Subaru looks at him with a shocked look, "Yo-you do?" Seishirou nods his head as Subaru lunges forward and hugs him, "Oh, I'm so glad."
Seishirou hugs him back tightly as he looks up. A smirk comes across his face as he looks up, "Look at that. Mistletoe."
Subaru blushes as he looks up as well, "Huh, look at that."
"You know what that means, don't you Subaru-kun?"
Subaru is about to protest until he feels Seishirou's lips pressed against his. A moan escapes his mouth instead as he allows Seishirou's tongue to enter into his mouth. Seishirou puts one hand on the Sumeragi's check and another on the small of his back.
Seishirou ends the kiss and sees a huge blush on the young man's face, "You're so cute, Subaru-kun." Subaru looks to the side of him to see the dishes displayed with what Hokuto had left behind.
He reaches a hand over to scoop up some whip cream and wipe it over Seishirou's face, "You look cute with whip cream on your face too, Seishirou-san."
Seishirou uses his hand to whip off the whip cream as he licks it off his hand with a chuckle. "Well, you know, Subaru-kun," he uses his hand to take some chocolate syrup and smears on Subaru's face, "I'm sure you'd be more delicious now with chocolate tainting your pure skin."
Subaru laughs as he grips Seishirou's suit to 'try' to get the older man off of him. Seishirou keeps Subaru in his arms as he attacks Subaru's face and what little access there was on his neck with licks and kisses. "Seishirou-san~!"
Seishirou laughs as well as he grabs the forgotten blue ribbon. He grabs one of the Sumeragi's wrists and puts the ribbon through the metal hoop. He then proceeds in getting the ribbon through the other metal hoop and hoists the Sumeragi up. "You wouldn't actually think I would let this opportunity pass me by, do you Subaru-kun?"
Subaru shows a smirk himself even though a huge blush is still placed on his face, "I would've been disappointed if you did." Seishirou leads Subaru to his bedroom with the ribbon and ties the ribbon to the post bed. Seishirou takes his suit and dress shirt on to expose his torso and leans down to once again kiss the Sumeragi.
"I love you, Subaru-kun. Merry Christmas."
"I love you too, Seishirou-san. Merry Christmas."
There you have it! This next part, I really don't know how any of this happened all these characters decided to control my fingers and write this so...Merry Christmas!
Hey, where's Subaru?", Kamui asks as he brings his wrapped presents down to the living room to put under their tree.
"Oh, he's…um" ,Sorata says, trying to think up an excuse to tell Kamui.
"He's out on another job and he won't be back till maybe tomorrow", Arashi finishes for Sorata.
"Oh, ya! Right! Thanks, Nee-chan", Sorata says going back to hanging ornaments on the tree.
Kamui blinks his eyes as he places the gifts down. "So he's going to miss Christmas?", Kamui asks disappointed.
"It seems so. I'm sorry, Kamui. I know you were really excited about spending Christmas with Subaru-san, but we got a better surprise for you", Sorata says, slapping Kamui's back, nearly knocking the wind out of him.
Kamui coughs for a while until he asks between gasps, "And what exactly is that surprise?"
"Here, follow me", Sorata says, leading the still coughing Dragon of Heaven to his room.
"What are we doing in- Hey, Sorata! WHAT THE HELL! OPEN UP THE DOOR, SORATA, BEFORE I BREAK IT DOWN!"
"Now, now, Kamui-kun. You're hurting my feelings."
Kamui's eyes widen in shock as he stops banging on the door and turns around to see Fuma, "Fu-Fuma! What are you doing here?"
Fuma's smile widen in joy as he takes big steps toward Kamui and wraps his arms around the young boy. Kamui froze in place as Fuma continued to hug him, "I'm here because I wanted to tell you that I'm done."
"Done with the war. I don't want to fight you anymore. I love you."
"No, I'm really not. I love you." Kamui looks at Fuma in disbelief. "Fine. But you got to give me props for trying right." Kamui bangs the top of Fuma's head with a pillow. "Hey! Watch the hair!"
"GET OUT OF HERE, TEME!" Kamui yells as he continues to hit Fuma with the pillow until they got to the window.
"Oh , c'mon, Kamui. How about just one bang then in the spirit of Christmas", Fuma says with a smirk and his arms wide open in welcoming.
Kamui glares at Fuma, "Fine." He drops the pillow and walks up to Fuma. He takes the shudder of the window and bangs Fuma with it causing the Dragon of Earth to jump away.
"SORATA, I'M GONNA KILL YOU!", Kamui yells swinging open his bedroom door.
"RUN!", Sorata yells as Kamui stomps down the stairs. All the Dragons of Heaven run outside of the mansion and scatter in the campus, hiding in the dark shadows in the night.
