Arrivals in London
Hi. This is my first Kuroshituji fan fiction. Please review.
NOTE: I'm not doing CielXLizzy because I don't like incest. Sorry, if you're a fan of that, you're in the wrong Story. And I'll have the links up soon for Leiah and Amelia.

Have a nice day :D
I walked up to my mistress, cautious of her attitude this morning.
"My lady?" She turned to face me, her blue eyes upset.
"What is it Leiah?" She asked, annoyance hinting in her voice.
"We are near England my lady. The captain says that we should be docking within the next five minutes" I announced. She nodded.
"Aren't you happy. You get to see your fiancée for the first time in two years." I smiled. She just huffed.
"I'm not happy about this. Going to live with the Phantomhives. It's a disgrace."
"I'm sure it won't be so bad." I fetched her clock from the closet.
"Yes it will be. You don't know Ciel Phantomhive." I put the clock around her shoulders.
"You are correct my lady." I said, letting the conversation drop. I knew I wouldn't get anywhere with my mistress.
There was a knock at the door. "Enter."
One of the dock-hands entered the room. He cast me a look of fear before saying, "Miss Auburn, we've docked."
My mistress nodded, and he left. "What did you do Leiah?" she asked.
"Nothing my lady. Just what you told me to do."
"I told you to feed, and leave no evidence."
I gave her a small smile. "I didn't leave any evidence. I ate after he was asleep." I replied as we left the room. On deck the air was cool.
"I despise this." my lady mumbled.
"I know, but it's for a year. Than we can continue on our search." I replied as we walked down the ramp.
"Amelia!" someone shouted. My lady looked at a boy, only about 12, with an eye patch.
"Ciel." She ran down to meet him. Upon reaching him, she gave him a hug. I smirked. Yep, she really despised this.
"Excuse me, but may I ask who this is?" Ciel asked, gesturing to me.
"Pardon me. I forgot to introduce myself. I'm Leiah Archer, handmaiden to my lady Amelia Auburn." I said with a curtsey. Best to act my best.
"I'm Ciel Phantomhive. This is my butler Sebastian." I looked to the man standing next to him. How could I have missed him?
"A pleasure." I said.
"Oh, Ciel, what a handsome butler you've acquired." My mistress said. Ciel nodded.
"Sebastian, load Amelia's bags onto the carriage." Ciel instructed.
"Yes, my lord." the butler placed a hand over his chest as he gave a small bow.
"Allow me to help." I said, rushing to help.
"I don't need any help." Sebastian replied. I shrugged as I passed him a bag.
"I think I'll help anyway." I said, watching as he threw the bag onto the top.
"If you want to help, than just stand there." he said, sounding annoyed. I smirked before climbing onto the seat on the outside of the carriage.
"What are you doing?" he asked.
"I'm sitting. I don't feel like standing." I said, positing myself so I could see my mistress.
"There we go." He pulled the ropes so that the bags wouldn't fall.
"Shall we go master." The sentence sounded more like a statement than a question.
Sebastian held the carriage door open, and the two lovebirds entered.
I huffed. "Yep, she really despises this." I mumbled as Sebastian took a seat next to me.
"Despises what?" he asked.
"Nothing. Just something my mistress said." I replied with a yawn.
I shot a look over at the young women sitting next to me as she yawned.
"Didn't you sleep last night?" I asked her.
She shrugged. "I did, but not a lot. Forgive me." I put a hand on her chest.
"Don't mock me girl." I told her.
"Me, mock you? I would never." She said, an evil smile working its way onto her face.
"Really? It seems to me that you are."
"No. Not yet. I haven't been around you enough yet." She said, closing her eyes. A few moments later, the sound of her breathing told me she was asleep. Was this really the lady master was so worried about?
"You called my lord?" I asked. The young master looked up from his papers.
"Sebastian, I want you to prepare two rooms." he said.
"May I ask why?"
"We have guests coming. My fiancée and her handmaiden are staying a year." He said.
"Yes, my lord." I gave a slight bow.
"And one other thing."
"The maid's name is Leiah Archer. I want you to find out more information on her."
"Yes my Lord."
When I reopened my eyes, we were out of London. In fact, I couldn't even see London anymore.
"Where are we?" I asked.
"Only a few minutes out of London." Sebastian answered. I jumped out of my seat, than cast him a glare. He smirked.
"No, I remembered you were there, I just, uh, um…" I let the sentence drop.
"Well, now that you're awake, let's talk." I looked at him in surprise.
"Talk, about what? What could we have to talk about?" I told him.
"Well, tell me about yourself. How long have you been working for Amelia?"
"Hey! That the young mistress or Lady Amelia to you!" I yelled.
"Sorry. So, are you going to answer?" I cast him a glare.
"I've been serving her for about two years now. Right after she reappeared, I was hired by her aunt to take care of her." Shit, I shouldn't have said that.
"Reappeared? Where did she disappear to?" He questioned.
"I'm unsure. I was hired after she reappeared."
"Than how do you know she disappeared?"
"It was in the papers." Simple, quick, and a conversation stopper.
"Where did you work before?" He asked. Nice try.
"None of your business and that's the truth." I crossed my arms over my chest and looked away from him. Me: 1, Sebastian: 0.
"Oh really? Were you unemployed?" I remained silent. No point in giving him what he wanted.
He sighed. "I'm just trying to converse with you." He told me.
"Read my lips. Not interested." He smirked, and I turned so I wasn't facing him. He cupped my face in his hand as twisted me to face him.
"Oh really? That's what your mouth says. What does your body say?"
"Sebastian." Ciel stated in a warning tone. Thank you Ciel.
"Yes my lord."
"Pay attention to where you are going."
"Yes, my lord." He let go of my face and grabbed the reins with both hands. I crossed my arms over my chest with a smirk.
"Whip that smirk off your face Leiah." he said. I shrugged.
"Why should I?" I asked. He gripped the reins tighter. Me: 2, Sebastian: 0
"Master, Mistress, we've arrived." Sebastian announced, opening the carriage door. I stepped out first.
"Wow, Ciel, it looks like the old manor!" I shouted. Leiah smirked as she jumped off the carriage.
"That's correct. The manor was rebuilt to look exactly like it did before." Tanaka stated.
"Tanaka! It's been so long!" I hugged him, and he, deflated?
"What the, what happened?" I shouted in alarm. I heard Leiah laugh behind me.
"Tanaka has a habit of doing, well, what you just saw." Sebastian explained. Leiah sighed.
"You shouldn't have said anything. Its fun watching her be upset." She stated.
"Leiah." I said in a warning tone.
"Yes, my lady." I turned to face her.
"Grab my bags."
"Yes my lady." she said, grabbing a bag.
"Please, allow me. It's much too heavy for you." Sebastian stated. She gave him a fake smile. And, believe me, I know when she's giving a fake smile.
"If you insist." she said.
The first rule, if a guy insists that he'll carry something for you, let him. It would have been a pain, with my skirt and all. Have I mentioned how much I HATE skirts.
"Follow me please." He said with a smile. I rolled my eyes.
Lady Amelia cast me a look, and I mocked Sebastian. She started giggling, and Sebastian cast a glare at me. I just smiled sweetly.
"Wow." I said as we walked in.
"It's huge right?" I nodded.
"It's big. Not the biggest I've seen." I told her.
"What do you mean?"
"You should have seen Caesar's palace. That was HUGE." I stated. Sebastian looked at us.
"What about a place?" he asked. I gave him an innocent look.
"When I was younger my parents took me to Italy. I saw some palaces from the Roman Empire. They were built on greater proportions." I explained. He nodded, seeming to except my expliantion
We followed him up the stairs and into a large room.
"This is your room, my Lady." He announced. Amelia's face lit up, and I knew that she was happy. The room was large, with pale wood flooring and off-white walls. The bead was fit for a princess, and red roses decorated the room. She picked one a smelt it.
"This room is wonderful." She stated.
"Quite." I said in agreement. "Shall I help you unpack?" I asked. She shook her head no.
"Sebastian, show Leiah to her room." my mistress intruded.
"Yes, my lady." He said. We both gave her a small bow and left.
When we were out of her hearing range, I allowed myself to smirk.
"What's so amusing." Sebastian asked.
"My mistress." I replied. He rolled his eyes, and I cast him a smile.
"You should relax every now and again demon." He stopped and turned to look at me.
"What did you call me?" he asked. I looked at him innocently.
"Nothing. I just said that you should relax every now and again."
He gave me curious look. "Follow me."
"May I ask what you though I called you."
I cast me a look. "I thought you called me a demon."
I placed a hand over my heart. "A demon! Why would I ever call anyone such a thing?" He didn't answer me.
I waited for the maid to say something. However, she said nothing else the entire walk to her room.
"This will be your room." I announced. She nodded and entered quietly.
"You will find your new outfit in the wardrobe." I told her. She nodded and walked over to it. There was a look of horror on her face after she opened it.
"Is something wrong?" I asked. She held up the outfit.
"It's your maid dress. You'll need it." She hung the skimpy dress back up.
"I'm not wearing that. It's too short." I smirked, and her face got red.
"You planed that didn't you?"
"No. It just worked out that way. I suggest you get changed. Dinner will be served soon."
I threw my boot at the door. Unfortunately for me, it was already closed.
"That's the last time I don't bring my outfit." I grumbled as I unpacked. When I finished, I looked at the dreadful dress.
"Why did I listen to Madam Grayson?" I asked aloud. There was no response.
I groaned as I slipped out of my black traveling dress. "I hate this." I said.
"Really. I'm enjoying this." I wiped my head around to see Sebastian standing at me door.
"What the," I quickly picked my dress up to cover myself. "Get out." I instructed.
He smirked. "I was wondering what was taking you so long." I sat on my bed.
"I'm not getting changed with you here. Leave." He smirked at me.
"Are you sure."
I looked at my wall. "Yes, I'm very sure."
He cupped my chin and forced me to look at him. Our faced were just inches away. "I would rethink that." He uncurled my one hand from my dress.
"I'm not letting go." I told him. He just leaned in closer.
"Are you sure." I smirked.
"I'm sure." I said. Then I brought my latest book, a Tale of two cities, down on his head. He fell to the floor in pain.
"Not get!" I said as I pushed him out. I locked the door and slid down onto the floor.
"Thank GOD that's over." I said as I stood up. I double checked the door to make sure it was locked.
I slipped out of my dress again, and claimed into the maid outfit. I pulled on the stockings, than slipped on the shoes. I gave myself an onceover in the mirror and sighed.
"I'll get them for this." I walked up to my mistresses' room and knocked on the door.
"It's me my lady. May I enter?"
"Yes." I entered, and she smirked at me.
"I see you got the outfit I told them to give to you." My mouth dropped.
"You told them to give this to me!"
"Yes. And you have to wear it." Have I mentioned the fact that my mistress can be evil? Don't let the blond hair, blue eyes, and innocent looks fool you. She can be ice cold.
"Yes, my lady." I said with a sigh.
"I've finished unpacking. You may retire to your room until dinner." Translation: You took forever, get out of my sight.
"Yes my lady."
"Oh, and Leiah, I expect you to obey Ciel's orders while we're here." Translation: Obey him or I'll hurt you.
"Yes, my lady." I left the room and headed back to my room. If I was going to be forced to wear this, might as well do it my way.
"Where is Leiah?" I asked Amelia as she sat.
"Her room. But she should to be here." She said.
"Who's supposed to be here?" Leiah asked from next to her mistress.
"Oh, Leiah. It's nice of you to join us." Lady Amelia said.
"If I missed dinner what type of maid would I be?" She answered with a smile. Then she twirled. "How do I look my lady?" My jaw almost dropped.
She was still wearing the dress, but she made a few changes. The stockings became black, and the white heels changed into knee-high black boots. She also had chosen black fingerless gloves.
"Very nice. Where did you get the boots?" Amelia asked.
"I got them back in America." She smiled when she looked at me.
"Are you ok Sebastian? You look a little tense." she said.
I looked away from her. "I'm fine."
I smirked at Sebastian. Ever since I had shown off my, improvements, to my outfit, he's been trying to avoid looking at me.
Now dinner's done. Ciel had retreated to where ever he goes, and I was brushing my mistress's hair.
"Why do you do that?" She asked.
"Do what?" I asked innocently.
"Sniff my hair? Is that common for all demons?" I smiled at her.
"No. I simply love your shampoo, and you always smell sweet." I told her as I pulled the brush through her hair.
"Oh. I was just wondering." She answered with a yawn. I kissed the top of her head.
"There, done." I announced, placing the brush on the table. She yawned as she climbed into her bed. I closed the curtains, and she fell asleep. I cast her a small smile as I shut off the light.
Day 1, finished.
