Ten Years Earlier...
'What is "white"? What is "snow"?'
It is something that is not red.
'Something that is "red"... is what?'
The little girl looks down at her hands, seeing pink mittens on them. Her brown hair blows in the blizzard wind that causes her yellow coat to bellow around her. The fur around her neck keeps most of the cold away, but she still feels it seeping in. She feels the cold white snow seeping into her pink dress and white tights, making her legs cold and wet. She digs her brown boots into the snow, her feet being the only things not all wet and cold.
She lifts her head up, placing her hands in the snow as she hears the crunch crunch of footsteps coming towards her. She sees a shadowy figure standing in the blizzard, and she can feel it's eyes on her, making her shiver in a different way then in the snow. The figure comes closer, standing tall above her.
It's a man with shaggy blond hair and sideburns and his face is made up of angels and beauty. He wears a white scarf that tucks into his black/dark brown trench coat that bellows behind him in the rough wind. She watches him as he bends down so his head is only a little higher than hers while she's on her knees in the snow. He gives her a charming smile that's supposed to soothe her, but it only makes her colder and scared.
"Are you lost, little girl?" He asks her in a deep voice. "May I," he smiles, "drink your blood?" He opens his mouth and the little girl sees long fangs, his eyes turn a blood lust red, and he grabs her.
Her eyes widen, then she starts screaming.
"No. No! NO!"
All of a sudden, the man let's go of her, and these a crunch and splat, and the girl feels something warm and wet hit her before she realizes what happened. A young man with shaggy brown hair whipping around his face, wearing a white scarf and blueish long trench coat stands there, his arm clear through the scary man's skull. Blood is flowing down the scary man's neck, and the young man is covered in it. So is the little girl.
"You are a disgrace to all vampires!"
...beasts in human form...
...who drink the blood from living humans.
The young man says, his arm still through the skull of the scary man. The little girl is not afraid of him though, even as he pulls his arm out and lets the other man fall to the ground and turn to colorful dust that starts blowing away with the white snow. The young man looks down at the dust, then lifts his hand to his mouth and lick some blood off his index finger.
Vampires do exist...
His eyes the same blood lust red as the scary man's were. But still, the little girl was not afraid. The young man looks at her for the first time, and she sees a beautiful man with careing eyes.
"Are you all right?" He asks.
...you just don't realize they're there.
The little girl looks at him, and he offers her his blood soaked hand. She takes it without a second thought. He smiles down at her, and she falls into his arms.
"It's alright now, you're safe." He says as he picks her up and carries her towards an idling black car, and slips in.
"Are you alright, Kaname?" Asks Ichijo Takuma. "Who's that?" He cooks his head, making his light blond hair falling to the side and his green eyes widen. "She's human! And covered in blood... Kaname what happened?"
"I'm fine Ichijo. We need to make a stop at Cross Academy." The young man, Kaname Kuran, ignores Ichijo Takuma's questions.
"Of course, Lord Kaname." Ichijo Takuma nods, knowing he won't get answers right now. "Driver, take us to Cross Academy. My grandfather will have to wait."
And with that, Kaname Kuran, Ichijo Takuma, and the little girl were on their way to Cross Academy where Headmaster Cross already knew they were on they're way. The gate was open for them, and they walked up the many stairs, Kaname Kuran carrying the little girl and Ichijo Takuma waiting in the car, up to the Headmaster's building. The Headmaster was there, waiting. The little girl woke up on the way there, shivering slightly from the cold.
"Kaname, it's so nice to see you. This is her?" Headmaster Cross greets.
"It's nice to see you as well, Headmaster. And yes, this is her." Kaname Kuran says.
