This was requested by FireBirdSasuke. Hope you like it. There is a song in the story. It is called Sleepsong by Secret Garden. I do not own the song.
We were launched off the cliff on a platform. Professor Ozpin told us how the first person we laid eyes on was our partner. Once I landed, it was quiet. There were no Grimm in sight. Do to how quiet it was, I could hear light singing. It was so enchanting that I decided to follow the sound. As I got closer I could make out the words...
Lay down your head
And I'll sing you a lullaby
Back to the years of loo-li-lai lay
And I'll sing you to sleep
And I'll sing you tomorrow
Bless you with love
For the road that you go
The song didn't stop and it got louder as I got closer. With a few more steps the singer came into view. She was sitting in a tree, on a low branch,and there were Grimm, but they didn't attack her. They were listening to her singing. They almost seemed.. at peace. The girl in the tree was as beautiful as her voice. She had (h/l) (h/c) hair and (e/c) eyes. She was a Faunus just like me. She had (h/c) wolf ears.
She was a wolf Faunus...."oh great...she's a dog,"I thought to myself. I still tried to get closer to her though. Well that was until I stepped on a branch which caused her to stop singing. Her bright (e/c) eyes shot up and fixated on my eyes and I froze in place.
When I heard the crack of the branch I was scared. Someone was here. They knew I was a Faunus. I'm scared....they might kill me. I flatted my ears to my head in fear. Though, when I looked up, I only saw one pair of eyes. They were amber eyes. Bright and beautiful, standing out against her black hair. She didn't move, but kept eye contact with me. The Grimm I was singing to saw the girl and went up to her. This caused her to look away from me.
She started to back away, which made me realise she was afraid of the Grimm even though they made no move to attack her. I got off the tree I was sitting in and walked over to where the girl was. I stood in between the girl and the Grimm. I nodded at the Grimm and they slowly walked away, leaving me with the girl.
I smiled at her, and even though she was staring at me, I don't think she noticed I was smiling until I spoke up,"What's your name, miss?"
She seemed scared, but still answered, stuttering,"M-my name is Bl-Blake Belladonna".
I giggled at how nervous she was,"My name is (y/n), (y/n) (l/n). It's nice to meet you miss Blake". She finally smiled back at me. I was happy that she was smiling at me.
She spoke up again,"Why weren't those Grimm attacking you or me?" I saw a blush come across her face as she was speaking to me. It's so cute. She's worried about me.
So, I started to explain,"Not all Grimm are mindless creatures. They aren't all evil. It was also because of my song. I know you heard me singing. That song tells them, they aren't alone. That they can trust me. They didn't attack you because all they want is to be friends with humans. The sad thing is, is that most Grimm are evil, so humans assume all Grimm are evil.
"So, the Grimm that we're here can never meet humans. Those Grimm are also my family. They took me in and cared for me. They'll protect me, so I'll protect them. This forest is my home. I've been here my whole life". With that I finished.
She was stunned as to how much I had told her, but the she smiled,"You know Professor Ozpin, the lead professor at Beacon academy, he said that the first person we make eye contact with is our partner," I looked at her funny so, she continued, "This is my first year here. Every first year does this. The first person you make eye contact with is your partner for the rest of the time at Beacon. We are supposed to find reflects which out us in teams. You were the first person I made eye contact with."
I tried to argue with her,"But, I don't even go to Beacon!" She grabbed my hand and started pulling me along. I yanked my arm away and ran.
It's been an hour since (y/n) ran off. I now have my team. Team RWBY which consisted Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Yang Xiao Long, and I. We had to go back to Beacon, but once we were finished I immediately went back out to look for her. I was about to call it a day when I heard singing.
The voice was so enchanting that I knew it was (y/n). I followed the singing, which led me to a cave. This time she was alone, so I walked up to her. She stopped singing and looked down,"I'm sorry I ran away. I was scared. I'm not good with people". I felt a sharp pain in my heart as I saw her start to cry and I let my body move itself.
I felt soft lips touch mine and warm hands wipe away my tears. I soon kissed back and we kissed until we needed air. I leaned in to kiss her again, but stopped as I heard others calling her name. I started to panic, but she made me look at her and said,"I'll be back tomorrow". Sure enough she came back the next day and the day after that. She showed up everyday without fail.
Sorry I took so long to update. I was on a vacation. Hope you enjoyed the story.
