SebastianxGrell Chapter 4Sebastian strolled over the hills, covering the ground quickly with his large strides. He knew Grell would be waiting for him over by the river and just the thought of seeing him again set his heart beating faster.
As Sebastian rounded the hill he saw Grell standing not far away with his back to him. As silently as he could Sebastian crept up behind him and placed his gloved fingers inches away from Grell's eyes. He felt Grell stiffen and he whispered into his ear, "Guess who?"
"BASSSSSYYYYYY!" Grell whipped around and enveloped him in a great hug.
Smirking Sebastian lifted his right hand up to his mouth and pulled the glove off at the middle finger. This was enough to turn Grell into a quivering mess, giggling like a schoolgirl. When Sebastian's fingers were de-gloved he took Grell's face in his hands and they locked lips, their eyes were closed.
After a solid minute Sebastian was going dizzy and he held Grell up as his knees gave way. They stopped; they both were breathing hard and i

However bad it sounds, Sebastian couldn't wait to see Grell again. Inside him there was a battle going on between his head and his heart, and his heart was slowly winning. The cannons in his heart pulsed around his body and ushered any rational thought from his mind. All he could think about was Grell and their kiss. He wanted more. But not only did he want more of Grell, he also wanted to cause Ciel pain. He knew all about Ciel's desires and he knew that he would never let anything like that happen unless Ciel directly ordered him. He wanted to crush the lights out of Ciel's soul, out of that sweet vengeful soul that he so wanted to taste.
Sebastian smirked. Ciel wouldn't be happy ever again if he had anything to do with it. It was time he accepted it, since last week when that fateful kiss had happened, and the course of his immortal existence had changed, he had shunned all contact, however slight, with Grell.
His thoughts went back to yesterday, when the Shinigami had dec

Sebastian smartly sidestepped Grell's hurtling figure and watched in amusement as he crashed into a wall. He sat up, rubbing his bleeding nose and looked at Sebastian, the picture of sadness.
"Oh, Bassy, why do you reject me? If only you gave me a chance I can show you what we could have together!"
Sebastian smirked at him as he puckered up and stretched his arms out in a hug.
"Maybe another time Grell, you know I'm only here so I don't die of boredom."
"Oooooo! It's so nice to know you are thinking of me Bassy!" He struck a girly pose, fluttering his lashes and sidling up to Sebastian.
Sebastian leaned down towards Grell's ear and Grell stiffened and caught his breath. "It's getting hot, isn't it Grell?" Sebastian pulled at his collar, his bangs swishing around his eyes which were staring right into Grell's.
Grell's mouth formed an O shape and his eyes nearly popped out. "EEEEEEEEEEEEE!! BASSY!" He hops around in a sort of dance. "Ooo, Bassy, pose
Kuro - Too much Red, Ch. 3The Phantomhive manor was a somewhat empty place at night.Kuro - Too much Red, Ch. 34 years ago in Romance More Like This
During the day it was full of possible business partners, as well as servants running around frantically to get the day's jobs finished. However, at night all was silent, save for the occasional sounds coming from the kitchen when Sebastian was usually preparing for the next day. So this particular night would seem to bare no exception; if it were a normal night.
Ciel had retired for the night long ago, and the servants had just finished up their jobs as well. The only one awake in the Phantomhive manor was Sebastian Michaelis, and by looking at the situation he was in, it was clear that he wouldn't be going to sleep any time soon. Not that he really needed it.
Grell's condition hadn't improved, but on the plus-side, it hadn't gotten any worse either. Sebastian had been carefully monitoring the reaper ever since their arrival back at the manor, and he couldn't say whether he would live through it or not. The amount of blood he'
SebastianxGrell Chapter 5Ciel quickly made sure everything was in place and he called Sebastian again, even though he could sense him coming up the stairs.SebastianxGrell Chapter 54 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The door handle turned and Sebastian entered the room closing the door behind him.
"Yes, my lo-". Sebastian stopped in mid-sentence, his wide eyes focusing on a point just to Ciel's right. He froze. Ciel smiled. Suddenly Sebastian strode over to the opposite side of the room and knelt down in front of the thing. It was small, black and immensely furry.
He slowly stroked the cat's sleek black fur and then with shock he realised why it was lying down. Cuddled up next to it were three new-born kittens. Sebastian gasped.
Each one of the kittens had its eyes shut tight and they were the cutest kittens Sebastian had ever seen. Each one of them was a little ball of quivering warm fluff. He looked back at the mother and saw that she had blazing amber eyes. It was her. The cat from the garden.
As Sebastian picked up each of the kittens and examined them

"Sebastian, get me a different tie."
"Yes, my lord."
"I wish to cancel my violin lesson today; I have more important work to do"
"Yes, my lord."
"Tell Finnian to mow the lawn, it's getting overgrown"
"Yes, my lord"
I finished dressing my master and brought breakfast into the room.
"Is this my breakfast?"
"Yes, my lord."
"What is it?"
"Scones, earl grey tea and toast."
I have no wish to speak to my captor any more than is necessary. Just his eye patch reminds me of the hold he has over me and I deeply regret ever being drawn in by him and making a deal with him.
Once the young master had finished his breakfast I swept out of the room, taking the tray with me down to the kitchen. I entered just in time.
Silently I steadied the ladder and caught the plates that Mey-Rin so conveniently dropped, placing them on the shelf just in time to catch her. I set her upright, ignoring the blush in her cheeks and placed the tray in the sink. In no time at all th
Kuro - Too much Red, Ch. 2The Death God's eyes widened in shock, and after a moment or two he tried to draw in a breath. However it seemed to get caught in his throat, and he fell to his knees almost instantly, shaking violently. A few strange sounds escaped his mouth, but none of them formed words, only whimpers of pain. The knife had slid through him effortlessly; that was not something that Sebastian had expected. Surely reapers' defenses were better than that! But it wasn't so the damage had been done.Kuro - Too much Red, Ch. 24 years ago in Romance More Like This
Robert withdrew the knife, looking around in shock before staggering backwards. As for the Grell, he suddenly stayed still, his eyes completely void of emotion. When reality had suck in, mere moments later, he gently touched the wound, bringing his gloved hand back up his face. Examining it, he trembled slightly once again.
"Red " he murmured, low enough only for Sebastian to hear. He looked up in pain at the demon that was standing nearby, his rigid arms still trapping Ciel.
The butler's mind had
Kuro - Too much Red, Ch. 4A speck of sunlight slowly crept in through the gap in the curtains, helping the room to become just that little bit lighter. It continued on until it rested gently on the face of a certain demon, causing him to stir slightly.Kuro - Too much Red, Ch. 44 years ago in Romance More Like This
Sebastian knew that the warmth was a sign for him to awake and begin preparations for that day. There was so much that had to be done, and he knew nobody else would do it yet something seemed off. He had no will to leave the warm comfort of his bed, so for a few more moments he lay there.
It wasn't necessarily bad, but he felt just different. He was more relaxed than usual; the night's rest seemed to have been more fulfilling than most. So he allowed himself just that little bit of extra time to enjoy it.
His peace was disturbed when something next to him moved. Opening his amber eyes, he surveyed the scene before him with curiosity. He was faintly surprised to find that his arms were wrapped around a sleeping figure a somewhat familiar shinigam
Kuro - Too much Red, Ch 11Grell could think of nothing as he sprinted across the landscape, aware that he was closely followed by Sebastian. He didn't have to look back to know that the demon was out to kill, but it scared him. It was literally a life or death situation; one wrong move and he'd be gone. But he couldn't run forever, especially not with the wound becoming more painful with each step he took. How much longer would he last? He needed to get somewhere safe.Kuro - Too much Red, Ch 114 years ago in Romance More Like This
"The Reaper Realm," he muttered, forcing himself to pick up the pace a little more. It wouldn't take too long to get there, the only problem was if Sebastian caught him beforehand. He began to feel the human world slip out from around him as he concentrated, losing sight of it. He was so close; he could almost see the dispatch building in front of him. He was only a moment away from getting there when he lost view of his surroundings too much; he didn't notice the sharp drop of the land he was running on. With a yelp, it caused him to slip, break
Kuro - Too much Red, Ch 10Waiting quietly wasn't one of Grell's strong points.Kuro - Too much Red, Ch 104 years ago in Romance More Like This
Just having to sit there for long periods of time made him uneasy. Not really the act itself, but the circumstances around it. If he had to be quiet, then did that mean he was alone? Or worse, with somebody he couldn't talk with? Was he waiting for something dreaded, like his trial for Jack the Ripper?
This time, it was both. He cast a quick glance at the other occupant in the room, which was Sebastian. He slumped down further in his chair when he noticed the butler was still staring at him. Two amber orbs that never ceased to look away, yet it wasn't with an adoring gaze that Grell had always dreamt of. Sebastian eyes were so full of well, the reaper couldn't even put his finger on it. Was it annoyance? Perhaps plain anger?
a possibility of betrayal?
Thinking back over it, things had changed so much over the past four days. Things had happened that he otherwise would have thought impossible, being stabbed by a human one
Kuro - Too much Red, Ch. 5"He is not coming with us," Ciel said firmly, throwing Grell a look of pure disgust.Kuro - Too much Red, Ch. 54 years ago in Romance More Like This
The reaper in question pouted, crossing his arms across his chest stubbornly. "She," he corrected. "And why not?"
"You'd only cause unnecessary trouble," Ciel snapped. "I see no gain in taking you with us."
"Seb~as~chan!" Grell whined, throwing himself onto the butler. "Make him let me come! I'll be on my best behaviour, I swear! Just for you, Sebby~!"
The demon sighed, turning to the young earl. "Bocchan, as much as I hate to admit it, Grell could be of some use to us,"
Ciel's eyebrows rose slightly. "Really?" he asked in obvious disbelief. "How so?"
"I have reason to believe that this case may be more complicated than we originally thought," Sebastian admitted. "At this stage it's just a suspicion; however Grell will be the only one who can confirm the situation
The red shinigami grinned widely, exposing his sharp teeth. Oh, he'd known Sebastian would come to his rescue~! He glanced over at Cie
Kuro - Too much Red Ch. 6The bright green eyes that always seemed to be hidden under his glasses were closed upon hearing Sebastian's words. He inhaled sharply, afterwards slowly breathing out and thinking over what he had been asked to do.Kuro - Too much Red Ch. 64 years ago in Romance More Like This
Really, couldn't a lady at least get some rest? Oh no, just ignore the fact that he'd been stabbed little more than a day ago, because that didn't matter, did it? If the little brat wanted the case solved then of course he'd go and solve it. Getting information from the other reapers could be a tricky task, though. After all, William would probably drag him straight to the other poor recipients of overtime the second he saw him, and depending on their mood, Alan, Eric and Ronald would probably help him.
But if it made Ciel happy, then it would make his beloved Sebastian happy too.
"It's achievable, I suppose," he muttered. "Not that I'm doing this for the little runt, though. Only for you, Sebby."
Ignoring his last remark, the butler continued on. "It's the only chanc
Kuro - Too much Red, Ch 9"I still don't understand the case, Sebastian," Ciel muttered, pushing away the empty plate. "We've examined every crime scene, there are no witnesses yet even if there was a reaper involved, surely it would have been the Undertaker!"Kuro - Too much Red, Ch 94 years ago in Romance More Like This
"Yet it's not him," the butler replied, picking up the empty plate swiftly. "His behaviour yesterday was proof of that. We've been lead into a dead end."
"Indeed," the Earl murmured, annoyance in his tone. "Truth be told, I honestly would have preferred it to be him, that way the case would be finished by now." He sighed wearily, picking up the newspaper beside him. He scanned the front cover, mismatched eyes widening. "Perfect, the Yard's not going to be happy. More murders last night, however it doesn't seem the press are too precise on the details."
"Actually, my Lord, there was a phone call from Sir Randall this morning," Sebastian announced. "There were two more murders last night, the same pattern as usual."
"I see. I don't suppose there was a
Kuro - Too much Red, Ch. 14Sleep was what occupied Grell's days for the next couple of weeks. The wounds were healing as expected, but the side effects of all the medication he'd been given was fatigue, much worse than when he had the soul inside him, using up a large amount of his energy. He couldn't stay awake for more than two hours a day, and when he was, he was in such a confused state that he could barely think.Kuro - Too much Red, Ch. 144 years ago in Romance More Like This
On most of those days, William was with him. Whenever he wasn't it was usually Alan, and occasionally Ronald or Eric. But Grell barely remembered those times. His mind was in too much of a mess to figure out. The only thing he recalled was when William told him why he was in the infirmary in the first place; a death scythe accident. The red reaper had no memory of such a thing, but why would his superior lie to him? Knowing him, he'd probably done something irresponsible like that.
Grell wasn't sure why he was there anymore. Everything he thought of made no sense, and he could never find the right
Kuro - Too much Red, Ch. 1"Young master."Kuro - Too much Red, Ch. 14 years ago in Romance More Like This
Ciel Phantomhive's eyes shot open immediately, observing the scene around him with curiosity before letting out a loud sigh. Closing them again, he tried to remember the dream he had been having before he was awoken. It was a strange one at that somehow he'd felt trapped, almost as if he was in a small confined space for a long period of time. He shook his head, trying to relieve himself from the drowsiness. No, he was just being naïve. Just because it wasn't the first time he'd had the dream, it didn't make it have any meaning.
Watching him from the doorway was his butler. Dressed in the same attire as usual, he looked at the young Earl with something that an outsider would have taken as concern. But Ciel knew him better than that.
Sebastian Michaelis only cared about one thing; his young master's soul. It was the reason the demon was standing there on that day, playing the role of the superb butler.
"I'm terribly sorry to wake you, master, but a letter came
