*Author's note*

As usual my update is ultra-mega slow… So sorry for that…I really don't know what to put next…but good luck with whatever formulates in my head…

Chapter 19-Options

Those words made her more confused…

"But we're already-"

"Not officially." Kaname interrupted

"Huh?" All kinds of things were running through her mind…Official? Although the serious atmosphere was slowly disintegrating Kaname kept his expression 100% serious and composed. Never getting tired of the gesture he cupped Yuuki's cheek.

"How do humans get married?"

That question made Yuuki freeze. She never thought that was what Kaname was implying when he said he wanted to marry her. Kaname narrowed his eyes in a gentle way to cast more attention to Yuuki alone also inquiring for the answer to his question.

"Well…it's usually in a church or at the courthouse…"

He signaled with his eyes that he wanted to hear more…

"There's the vows that the bride and groom make, and…" she was randomly saying anything about weddings that came to her mind…Trying to focus yet still distracted with the inquiry.

Her pause gave Kaname a chance to once again claim her lips. He whispered to her ear.

"Do you want to get married like that?"

That was actually a good question since Yuuki didn't know how to respond. She admitted that when she was human 'sometimes' she dreamt of those stuff…even when she was awake, especially when she was a little girl. Yet as she continued to discover his life those fantasies gradually vanished.

Kaname expectantly waited for a response…Yuuki just seemed to stare back at him as if wanting the same thing. So he turned his head away from her but kept one of his hands on her cheek.

"It r-really doesn't matter…" his eyes widened in surprise as once again every fiber of him was aimed at Yuuki.

"As long as we're together" she continued as she tried to look her lover in the eye.

"That's true" he replied as he rested his head on her shoulder.

Then he focused his eyes once again on her…an expression that was inquiring to ask something else…

"Have you ever thought of intercourse?"

"?" At first, she wondered what he meant then she finally understood and all the blood rose to her face...

She averted his eyes from and as he put one of his hands near her chest she couldn't help but be more conscious.

That feeling completely disappeared when she heard a faint chuckle…She turned her eyes to Kaname who was desperately trying to hold back laughter. She tried to restrain herself from gritting her teeth but she lost her self-control and shouted…

"That is NOT funny!"

His laughter eventually died down and as of now they were both in a lying position…he rested his head on her chest

"I never get tired of watching the blood rise to your cheeks"

I'm always embarrassed when I'm with you…She thought. Up to now, that still hasn't changed

"Do you think it would be more pleasurable than drinking blood?"

She didn't know how to answer that question. Kaname didn't say anything as he pressed his lips on her…It wasn't the same subtle kiss; it seemed more urgent and more aggressive. It wasn't like him at all.

He licked her lower lip as Yuuki opened her mouth. It was the first attempt.

It made her spine tingle more than when Kaname licked her neck when sucking blood.

After that, the both of them were nearly gasping for breath. It wasn't a common sight to see in vampires.

He rested his head on her shoulder and he was facing her neck. She was still slightly panting

"Did I force you into this fate?"

Yuuki wanted to disapprove, but she could sense that he was going to say something more.

"I just want to be with you"

"I've never felt forced" she replied

She felt his breath tickling her neck.

"I know that Kiryuu Zero still lingers in your head"

Kaname lifted his head and looked at her.

"So…you can do whatever you want"

It was the firs time she ever heard those kinds of words from him, His attitude was somewhat possessive and these words seemed to convey freedom on her part.

Yet she herself did not protest with his actions.

She kept silent.

Kaname took one last glance at her and smiled…

"I'll be taking a walk around the academy"

Then he was gone.

Yuuki lied down on the bed and closed her eyes even though she knew that sleep wouldn't come.

When will we leave the academy?

Meanwhile…

Zero stopped his hand midway to knock at the door of the chairman's office.

"Come in, Kiryuu-kun"

Zero smirked. Sharp senses as usual

"There's something I want to discuss with you"

There's no turning back now

Elsewhere…

A man who was mercilessly killing humans sat on the branch of a cherry blossom tree.

A hand caught a cherry blossom that was about to fall…

"Juuri, you will definitely come back to my side again"

In less than a second he ripped the single cherry blossom into shreds.

"Our daughter resembles you a lot…"

An image of Yuuki came into his mind…and he smirked…

"You really have gone mad" Another voice said.

It was his son.

"Ah, so nice of you to join me, son" He made a swift jump and landed his feet on the ground without any hassle

"What do you intend to do with her?"

His evil grin grew bigger.

"I just want to be with my family"

"Then why are you killing humans, like a deranged level E?"

"They are not important"

Kaname's frown deepened.

"If you were really in the right mind you wouldn't say that"

"Ne Kaname, why can't we be a family again?"

"Why can't we all be together like before?" he continued

"In your current state I can't even let you near Yuuki"

"Do you intend to kill me?"

The branch of the sakura tree snapped

"I'd like to avoid that as much as possible." Was Kaname's final statement before Haruka lunged forward as he bared his fangs.
