My name is Yuuki Cross. Lately, a lot of things have happened in my life. The main one is that Zero is a vampire and has a twin brother named Ichiru. And now Ichiru has enrolled into the academy. Not only that, but he was put into my class and now has to sit right beside me. Zero was not real happy about that. But lately, I have been talking and getting to know Ichiru. He's nice. Not at all like Zero explained him to be. We talk a lot, which I know annoys the hell out of Zero. I wish it didn't. I mean, they are brothers.

Well, tonight there is a ball. Like we had the night Shizuka had died. I'm getting ready right now. Tonight, I'm wearing a strapless black dress that reached just above the ankles. I'm also going to wear black flats incase i have to stop anything since I am still a school prefect and I have my duties to attend to. I'm going alone, cause no one asked me. I might spend the night with friends. I don'tk now, we'll see what happens.

I looked at the clock and saw that it was time to go. Right at that moment, I heard a knock on the door. "Come in!" I yelled. The door opened and in walked Zero. Yeah, he was being forced to attend the ball by the Headmaster.

"We have to go now."

"Okay. Let'a go." We started walking towards the ballroom. I wonder... "Hey, Zero?" He looked at me. "Are you going to dance tonight?"

"No. I don't dance."

"That's too bad. I'm sure many girls will be dissapointed." I giggled.

"I don't care." After he said that, we didn't talk again, until we got to the ballroom. The minute we entered the room, Zero went and leaned against a pillar and watched the room. I went and stood on the balcony. I don't like big crowds.

"Hey, what are you doing out here all by yourself?"

I jumped a bit and turned around. Ichiru was standing behind me. I could tell it was him and not Zero because his hair was longer and was being held in a ponytail by a string with a bell on it.

"Oh, I don't like crowds."

"Why's that?" He came and stood beside me. We looked at the sky.

"I don't know. I guess its being surrounded by so many people that unnerves me."

"I can understand that."

We looked at the stars for a little longer when suddenly the music inside changed to a real sweet song. "May I have this dance?" I looked to my side and saw that Ichiru had his hand out. I took it and he led me to the middle of the balcony. I wrapped my arms around his neck and he placed his hands on my hips and we just danced along with the music. Soon I realized that I had laid my head on his chest, but I didn't move. I just closed my eyes and listened to his heartbeat. Before we knew it, the song had ended. We moved away from each other and walked back to the railing.

"The stars are pretty tonight." I said.

"Yeah they are, but I know of something that's even prettier."

I turned to him. "What?"

I suddenly felt his lips on mine. I was startled at first, but then realized what was happening and started to kiss him back. After a while, we both had to come back for air and seperated. He looked right into my eyes, smiled, and said "you."
