Chapter I: Slave

Zero is struggling with his thirst for human blood. He was turned a vampire as a kid but, surprisingly, he was able to grow up. He was given blood tablets to sustain him until he fell into a Level E, which is the worst kind of vampire imaginable. They are beings without a mind or a will of their own but with only one unquenchable need: the need for fresh human blood.

Zero feels helpless against this craving. He feels as if his entire body is being ripped to shreds by his everlasting lust for blood. He feels like giving up to temptation when a white gloved hand appears before him. Seeming to come out of nowhere inside his personal darkness of pain, a single light shows through. He knows this hand belongs to one pureblood vampire, Kaname Kuran, his enemy.

Zero tries to swat his hand away but did not have the necessary strength, the pain of hunger too great for his tiny body to handle. He faints and later wakes in a bed soft as clouds. No later than he felt the comfortableness of the bed than the pain on the side of his head came on. He felt a whelp along the side, sore from when he had fainted. Grimacing, he removed the cover, noting he was half naked, and went to stand. "I wouldn't do that if I were you," came a voice in the darkness. Zero's eyes had adjusted to the dim glow that most darkened rooms have. He noted a silhouette standing by the curtained window, where no light is shown, his back to Zero. He knew this to be no other than Kaname Kuran, his white light. "Why am I here?" whispered Zero.

Silence and then, "You are here because I brought you here," came Kaname's reply. Kaname faced Zero with his eyes glowing a red the color of fresh blood. A small line of blood resides at the corner of his mouth, as if he just fed. He slowly wiped it away, never once straying his eyes from Zero, quietly watching him watch the blood be cleared away.

"Do you want some?" inquired Kaname.

Zero's mouth went dry then wet with saliva, anticipating how delicious the red nectar would taste in his parched throat. His fangs popped out. Trying to hide his reaction, he tightly closed his lips and shook his head no, all the while wanting to rip through Kaname's jugujar. Zero was then gripped in the most excruciating pain that he ever felt clawing him from the inside out. He screamed and writhed in such agony he thought he would die. He wanted to give up once more, ready to let his hunger over take him, making him a monster.

Gasping for breath, he clawed at his throat. Kaname just watched. Suddenly, there was silence and Zero fell unconscious from the terrible pains of his hunger. He awoke minutes later all sweaty and out of breath. "My p-pills," he stammers. "P-please g-get me my p-pills…" H went to reach for them but Kaname grabbed them up, dangling them in front of him, slightly away. Zero looked up with such despair writ all over his face that, he thought it'd best to give up again. So he laid back and closed his eyes.

"I can help you," Kaname stated in the silence. "All I have to do is give some of my blood to you and the pain will stop," he added. An eye of Zero's popped open at the mere mention of stopping the horrible pain.

"Your blood?" Zero asked, not at all sure if he speaks the truth. His eyes narrowed. "What's the catch?"

Kaname's eyes gleamed darkly. "You will become my slave."
