* People of Wattpad.... okay i was just about to give you a long boring authors note which frankly will probably be very boring and non informative. I could also drabble on about how boring my life is and why it sucks. Rambling on about my family problems might be interesting, BUT I don't really want to. SO, I've decided that I will not make a long and boring authors note for all of my readers who want to get things moving so they can read the wonder chapter I have written for all of you. Without further or do. Here it is!!!!!*
^.^ See what I did??
I also wanted to point out that this chapter I wrote doesn't follow the story line, its something I made up but I will get back on track for chapter 18 for you guys :D
Oh and here's some keys that would be helpful to help you understand whos talking and stuff blah blahblah. There's really only one you need to be worried about in this chapter.
" Italicized words" - Anna speaking through telepathy
So there you have it. Now GO AND READ (^.^)
" Ichiru?" I called quietly, inching towards him. He paid no attention to me but was crying silenty over Shizuka's dying body.
Zero came running through the door breathing heavily, his eyes widened at the sight before him of his younger brother and the pureblood on the ground.
" Ichiru what are you doing!" He gasped. Ichiru turned his head and my mouth dropped open a little when I saw blood on the corner of his mouth. He stood up with an unreadable expression as Shizuka suddenly exploded into a million pieces and walked over to a window pushing it open.
" You and this school..." He cursed under his breath and jumped out of the window before Zero or I could stop him. Phasing into a wolf I keaped and followed him once again out of the window leaving Zero alone.
Ichiru's figure was stiff and hunched in grief. His head was bent forward and I could make out his shoulders shaking slightly. My gut wrenched. He was crying.
I hurled myself past him and skidded a 180 on my paws in front of him. He started and gave a cry and he, always being clumsy, tripped forward, landing on his hands and knees. Ichiru ended up staring at the tip of my wet black nose which was inches from his face. " Where do you think you're going." He did not flinch like he used to whenever I spoke inside the twins minds. All he did was widen his eyes and move so he was kneeling but sitting on the heels of his leather boots. I took this opportunity to move a couple of steps closer. Seeming weary he stared at my other form I currently occupied. Recognition still hadn't appeared in his eyes but I could virtually see the wheels in his head turning to try and figure out why this animal seemed so familiar to him and yet... he had forgotten. And plus it talked! His hand seemed to hesitate when he lifted it up for me to sniff. I wagged my fluffy tail to show I meant no harm and pressed my muzzle carefully into the palm of his hand. He smiled and stroked the fur of my neck. Giving a sigh I moved closer till my chin rested on his shoulder... and that's when I formed back into my human self.
" Still don't recognize me huh?" He froze and then pushed me back lightly to get a closer look at my face then at the blood stained dress.
" I- I... No I... An-chan?" He gasped. I leap of warmth entered my chest. Only did he ever use that name when it was just Ichiru and I together. It was a nickname that supposedly stuck tight to his brain and Zero made fun of it. From then on he used it when we were alone. An unsuspected tear ran down Ichiru's face. Not thinking I used my thumb to wipe it away. Ichiru pulled me into a hug which I had not intended him to do at all. His arms folded comfortably around my small frame. I slid my hands around his waist with equal tenderness. Pressing my cheek against his chest I felt the steady beating of his heart. It all finally allowed what was happening to really sink in. Ichiru wasn't dead. He was back. He had been alive all this time and now I was hugging him. The coat underneath my cheek became wet and I realized a was crying as well but these were tears of relief and happiness, not sadness.
