Safe from what?
Her eyelids flew open and she sat up, her vision blurring as a head rush consumed her momentarily. As her vision cleared, she managed to get a sense of her surroundings. She was in the middle of a garden, and a strange one, too. All the flowers seemed to change in the dimming light of the sun, fluctuating and returning.
Shakily, she got to her feet, her head spinning.
Safe from what?
The question remained in her head, as she began to walk around and further examine her surroundings. She was on a dirt path with small dusty blue stones embedded in the soil. Off in the distance the sound of a fountain was evident and there was a faint song in the air. It went softly and sweetly, the lyrics moving with grace and beauty.

Papá cayó enfermo a principios de año, poco después de Navidad. Llevaba tiempo sintiéndose mal; tosía mucho y le dolía el pecho, pero a papá le horrorizaban los hospitales y creo que, de no haber sido por la insistencia de mamá, jamás hubiera acudido a la consulta de un médico. El caso es que acabó yendo, y el doctor, tras realizarle diversos análisis, le diagnosticó tuberculosis. Afortunadamente, la enfermedad había sido advertida a tiempo y tenía fácil curación, aunque el tratamiento sería largo.
A finales de enero, papá ingresó en un sanatorio a setenta kilómetros de Madrid. El aire puro de las montañas era, al parecer, muy conveniente para su restablecimiento, y ése fue el motivo del que se ausentara cinco meses de casa. Le eché mucho de menos durante este tiempo, ya que, para evitar el contagio, ni mi hermano ni yo podíamos vi

"Then we're agreed?"
Murky blue eyes lifted slowly from the ornate, hand-carved chess board to the quizzical, impatient expression on his adversary's face. His thin lips pulled back to show off perfect teeth in a lazy little grin. He lifted his King piece and examined it quietly, that tongue darting out to slide along his upper lip. "Is this real gold?"
"Pay attention, Alois," the darker-haired boy snapped, narrowing his good eye and letting out an irritated puff of air. "I said--"
"Yes, yes," Alois interrupted, a hint of amusement in his young voice. "The loser becomes the winner's servant for a whole week.

It was a cloudy night at the Phantomhive mansion as Sebastian was dressing Ciel for bed after a very 'interesting' dinner party "You know the way you behaved was inappropriate " The butler said breaking the silences "It was not. Viscount Druitt was simply being an idiot prattling on about how I am child " Ciel grumbled not meeting the demon's red eyes "That's not excuse for throwing a glass of wine in his face." Sebastian retorted. Ciel just rolled his eyes "shut up."
Just then the clouds cleared showing the glowing full moon. "You know master. Demons may kill humans but it is angels who will make you suffer" Sebastian said darkly.
"What are you going on about?" asked Ciel to tired and cranky to think. Sebastian just chuckled "oh nothing young master, now you really should go to bed it is already 11 o'clock" the butler stated pulling back the blanket of the king sized bed. Ciel yawned then crawled over to his pillow and laid down almost falling asleep "good night Sebasti

"Alright Ciel, what would you like to talk about today?" Sebastian had led him to a well furnished office, full of books on shelves set against the side walls, with degrees posted around them.
"...Madame Red is alive, Elizabeth is no longer my fiancé, I don't know where I am, so what's going on?" the boy was standing across from him, voice sharp and cold.
"Please calm down Ciel-"
"Stop calling me that, that's completely inappropriate!"
The older man looked down at him, confused for a moment, then smiled.
"Ah, of course, Young Master." The others had told him that encouraging the ward in his delusion was detrimental to his healing, but Sebastian's method made it easier to talk to his patient. "If you would please be clearer about your question, I would love to answer it."
"What is going on?" Sebastian's methods had worked, Ciel's tone had changed and he sat in the chair across from him.

Taste of revenge
Is the only thing
That I am left with now
I have no hopes
Nor do I have dreams
For the future
All that remains
Is this burning desire
Within my soul
As it calls out for revenge
I will not let it go
And I will not be afraid
Of this darkness
That now claims
My very heart and soul
I will walk forward
Into the very depths
Of hell itself
And drench my
Heart and soul in
The colour black.

“Instead of being here, you should go find your girlfriend before she gets raped. I just saw her making out with another guy. Just... leave me alone, will you?” It wasn't the kindest thing to say, but I couldn't care less. It was his girlfriend, so why was he here and not with her?
“...She's not my girlfriend...”
I raised my head suddenly and glared at him with anger. “Don't you fucking dare to lie to me! I saw you together!”
“Is Lizzie your girlfriend then...?”
“Huh?” Why was he trying to change the topic?
“I saw you together as well. Many times.” I could hear the smirk in his tone.

I was sitting in my room, listening to music, when I heard someone knocking on my door. I got up from the chair and opened it.
"Hello, Ciel!" I was greeted by Lizzie.
"L-Lizzie, what are you doing here?" I stuttered.
"Your aunt let me in. Are you busy right now?"
Lizzie, or Lady Elizabeth Cordelia Ethel Midford (She says that she hates her name, but I must disagree) is my childhood friend. Our first encounter was in preschool, she was four and I was five at the time. Our mothers were friends during high school and they decided to send us to the same school. I think of Lizzie as my sister since then. She helped me get through my "emo-period" as I call it right now. I was dejected after my parents' death and...well, I kept cutting myself, as if I was thinking that would bring them back to life. It's better now, thanks to Lizzie.
"No, I'm free."

Someone – and I had a pretty good idea of who it was – jumped on my back, nearly knocking me over.
“Damn you, Alois! I told you to stop doing that! It's fucking annoying!”
“Aw, but I thought you liked it!” Alois pouted like the stubborn child he was.
Alois (self-declared) 'Sex God' Trancy. My, uh...friend. Well, actually, I'm not sure what to call the relationship between us. I mean, he's okay, but there are times when I just want to grab him by his scrawny little neck and choke the life out of him. Despite that, I supposed that we have an awkward bond of sorts, and he is helpful when I have problems.
“So, what happened?”
I took a deep breath and suddenly realized that I didn't know where to start. What should I tell him? How much should I tell him? All that came to mind was to say that I was kissing another guy, but that was nothing new; he already knows I'm

The look on his face was priceless. He stared at me as if I said something like ‘The Earth just stopped turning,’ or something like that. Seriously, was it that hard to believe that I, indeed, am a guy? OK, I know I’m really short and skinny, but really... It pisses me off when people mistake me for a girl.
I tried to remove Ron’s and Lizzie’s attention from his faux pas.
“Nice to meet you,” I said.
He blushed. Or maybe it was just the light? I couldn’t be sure.
Lizzie was looked at me and then back at him. Then she opened her mouth so it formed an ‘o’.

While they walked down the hall, Ciel took his chance to glance around this supposed 'Insane Asylum', looking for anything that might prove it to be his mansion.
Then, he realized he had sanity, of a sort at least. The institute was huge. Each room that was for a patient was one of his guest's rooms. His office and several other meeting rooms were the offices of other doctors. His own bedroom was apparently the room the therapist loved using most. The main living room was an open recreation room.
Glancing out the windows, he could even still see the gardens and forest around them.
In his subconscious mind, he could understand how this place could be seen as his mansion- no, or was his subconscious making it look like an institute in some insane dream?
He thought they were going to the dining hall, but his supposed 'doctor' led him straight to the kitchens, weaving through cooks preparing lunch for the other residents.

Yeah, here it is again. I was already used to being confessed to by multitudes of girls. The only thing that bothered me was why. Why the the hell would they all want to go out with me?
"I'm sorry, Pola. I'm not interested."
She raised her head.
"How come?" she asked "I'm almost sure you don't have a girlfriend."
That was something new. Mostly when I rejected then, they'd say something like Sebastian, you idiot! or You're so cruel, Sebastian! but none of them asked why.
"That's true, Pola. But it doesn't mean I want to date someone based off of the first time I meet them."
"If this is the first time you've seen me, how come you know my name?"
Well, she was smart.

Ciel Phantomhive sat comfortably on the chair at one end of the round table outside of the M.I., a small lunch plate set in front of him. The platter was decorated with some sort of spiced pig, but he was unable to eat; at the rate his heart was pacing, he feared a heart attack if he dared to try. Instead, he watched Maylene take it away.
The same clothes Ciel had arrived in were on, royal blue and elegant looking, the child of a very wealthy man in England. The rips, tatters, and stains were all removed, making this mere thirteen year old look like the powerful Earl indeed, half of him still felt like he held the title.
Sebastian was sitting close by, far enough to appear as if he weren't prying, though close enough to hear everything. The air around them crackled like the still air of a thunder storm.

Sebastian was behind her, dismissing her as he saw the look on his patient's face. "You look surprised."

"You had a big day yesterday, I thought I'd let you sleep in a little. Besides, it's hardly past ten."
"You mean a bad tour and a horrible session is a big day?" he scoffed. "I would have been just fine!"

Absolute confusion struck. He realized he couldn't see out of his eye like he could before. He was blind on that side. Focusing the other eye on the mirror image, he saw his eye was dulled but with odd red blotches and lines. Still, in the center of his eye were faint scarred cornea scratches in the shape of the pentacle. It was around his entire eye, enlarged and rather horribly done.

The suspected culprits are known by many as the 'Devil's Puppets' and our team of investigators have reported several acts of vandalism, rape, and even murder at the hands of this group of high school thugs." The news report ran on television.
Ciel rolled his eyes and turned off the news report, "Those bastards! They know this is my territory, but they can't seem to keep their hands off."
He threw the remote on the floor and grabbed his over-shirt before storming out the front door of his run-down house. As he trudged along, he threw his shirt over his shoulder and headed in the direction of his friend's house.
It was also a run-down house, but unlike Ciel, his friend Alois had an older brother to help take care of him, so at least he had some love.
