Rising Storm The wind whipped through Dakota's hair until she could barely see. It did not matter to her, the image before her was already burned into her mind. The leaves scurried across the freshly turned dirt like nails on a chalkboard.
As thunder cracked the sky, Dakota looked up at the quickly incoming storm. Kneeling down, Dakota reached out and touched the top of the dirt pile. With her free hand, she reached in her boot and pulled out the knife she always kept there.
It stuck slightly in the sheath until she gave it a firm tug. The blade gleamed red from the stray beam of light in the sky.
Moving her hand, she thrust the blade into the mound of dirt where her hands had been only seconds ago. Dakota held onto the hilt a minute longer before standing up.
Standing there, she let the memories flash before her eyes.
The swing set.

The light breeze poured through an open window, smacking Lillith in the face, waving her waist-long beautiful black hair behind her. She was laying on a recliner in her mother's office. Wearing her usual maid outfit, it draped off the edge. She turned her cobalt blue eyes to the form sitting on his desk.
"Mom?" She asked Ciel. He turned from his work. Putting his quill down, he nodded to her to speak. "There's something that I don't understand."
"And what is that?" Ciel asked.
"I'm twelve and you're my mother, yet we look the same age. Why is that?" asked Lillith.
"Not all demons age the same way," answered Ciel. "There are mutts, your father and I, purebreds, like you, akumas, a mix of demons and humans, and chastantyls, a mix of demon and angel. They all age different ways. In this case, mutts age a whole lot slower than purebreds. That's just the way things are." He turned back to his work. "You should ask your father for more crossbreeds."
"Oh," Lillith s

Leading a squirming, gagged, and bound seven year old demon was no easy task. They were almost caught by police, but they were able to hide her numeral times. In the end, they bought her to their secret bungalow, a dark basement-type place with scented candles lighting the way. It looked like some sort of medival cavern where cults of assassins met, which was pretty accurate in this situation.
"Let her go here," the dark teen said. He patted a large wooden table with four cuffs on each corner. "I'll be outside. For now, take your orders from my third man, Blasphemy." He then left the room in a hurry, shutting the old wooden door behind him.
Lillith landed on the table with a big 'thud!' Still being gagged and bound, her sacape plan looked like a fish on dry land. Her eyes glowed red. "Probo mihi eo!" Sounded in their heads.
Many of them chuckled. "Silly child," a beautiful woman said with ostrich feathers flowing down her neck. "Your dark magic doesn't work on us." Lil

The injured Sebastian was just able to dodge the Death God that tried to glomp him, who was shouting, "Sebby~!" with hearts in his eyes. After Grell fell right next to Ciel and Lillith, Grell looked up to his unrequited lover, "I missed you so so soooo much! Don't you miss me~?" This time, he was able to swing his arms around Sebastian's shoulders.
"Hello, Grell," Sebastian said, borred. "Nice to see you too." Grell snuggled fanatically and without mercy. Sebastian waited for Ciel's nod to throw him off. Grell wept at his knees.
"It's nice to see me?!" Grell said, starstruck. "Aw, come give me a reuniting kiss, Sebby!" As he jumped again with eyes closed and lips puckered, Sebastian sidestepped once again, and the red-haired-wonder landed face first in the wall. Lillith laughed and Ciel held it back secretly.
The akumas were still at the entrance, but now, they were a little bit amused. They could hear Grell's cries of joy from the dead end of the alley. Some of

Ciel and Lillith could see the faint shadow of a man move slowly across the floor toward them. They listened, straining their ears, to hear the soft pads of his palms and knees hit the floor, and also every time he sniffed the air. The room was very dusty, packed with mold and cobwebs. Some boxes looked like dust mountains and if someone were to blow on one, it would be as lethal as a heart attack.
Ciel put his index finger to his tightened lips and motioned to Lillith to follow. She nodded and went with Ciel, tip-toeing slowly in the darkness. The man kept following closely behind as well.
Mommy crept behind a box full of old wine bottles and got eye-level with it. Making sure that the man was facing them, Ciel took a moment to take a big breath. Then he blew all the dust in his face.
The man screamed slightly. "Ah... AH... ACHOO!" he sneezed. His sneeze was so powerful that billows of dust and resedue jumped in the air, sending him, Ciel, Lillith, and the man at the door

"How long has it been?" a dark teen voice said from the alley. "We haven't feasted in a pure demon's blood in a long time. Do you assume that the baby is still in the Phantomhive Mansion?"
"Could be," said the low, husky voice. "It's been six years since, and I just got a whiff of it." The sound of a bang of metal to a leather shoe sounded.
"We almost had it in our grasp and we lost it!" the shrill voice said. "All we've had to eat over the years is humans! Filthy humans! And not even the fat kind."
A purebred, even if he or she is small, will replenish ourselves," said the first. "It helps to make us more human. Human blood, on the other hand," he looked at his wrist, scaley and scarred with blood, "make us more demonic than we really are. If we can't barge in without them knowing, we have to find another way."
"Sounds like a plan," said the nasaly voice. "But what are we doing?"

Ciel was in for a long night of retirement. Not only did he finish the work that had somehow piled itself on his desk, Lillith had finally been staying in the mansion for a whole year. The staff had insisted on a birthday party for the young girl. Though the thought was not welcomed by Ciel, in the end, he had ended up enjoying himself. At least the cake was decent.
Lillith couldn't stop smiling the entire time. Everyone had assumed she had also liked the party, since she had kept clapping her hands, cheering, "Happy! Happy!"
After Lillith was put to bed, the staff, including Ciel and Sebastian, began to talk about the Queen's relative and who she would be. "She must have been beautiful to have such a beautiful baby!" Mayrin remarked. Finny and Bard nodded.
"I wonder what part of her was contributed to Lillith," Finny said. "Hair or eyes? Of course, it could be both, or none, but I suppose she had beautiful eyes either way."
"Beautiful eyes?" Bard asked. "Is tha

Weeks had passed since the news of the new maid had come and gone. The royal baby was constantly growing and learning. Ciel felt ashamed that he couldn't spend much time with Lillith, but he didn't let that show. One, because he had plenty of work on his desk, and two, because Lillith was always being babysitted by Mayrin. Every spare moment she had, she would play with the child like she was the next new Jesus. Lillith also stopped drinking from Ciel, much to his relief. But, there was one little variable off with the lives of those six.
"Sebastian," Ciel said, not looking up from last week's work. "Bring me something sweet." Sebastian smirked, rethinking approaching his master, but then bowed and left. Just as Sebastian was about to leave, a large ball of pink ran into his chest.
"I'm sorry Seba-chan!" the pink ball squeeled before pushing him out of the way. "Ciel! Can you believe it's been over 10 months since we've seen eachother?" She was already pulling her fiancee int

There were good times. There were bad times. The police who Sebastian called did not find any answers toward who broke in and tried to steal Lillith. For now, they had gotten away.
Right now, Ciel was in his office, going through some crimes and also some diagrams for new toys. And standing by Ciel's chair was his blue-eyed, short black-haired daughter, who was clad in a red velvet dress (on the contrary of Lizzy) and had a few of her right fingers in her mouth as well as her feet turned in as she stood. She stared at her mom who was working, fascinated. After all, she was already 3.
Sebastian walked through the door of Ciel's office. "Is there anything you need, My Lord?" he asked curiously. Ciel looked up.
"Nothing," he said. "Just bring me some tea." Lillith made herself known by looking up at Sebastian.
And is there something YOU want, My Lady?" Sebastian asked Lillith, kneeling down to meet her eyes.
"Cake," she replied, shortly after taking out her fingers. "Can I

Back in the office, after Ciel and the baby had calmed down, there had been major planning on how the two lovers were going to break the new baby in the mansion to the staff. If they had found out that Little Lady Lillith was the blood product of Ciel and Sebastian, then their secret would be out, and who would want that?
"We could tell them that she was left on our doorstep," pitched Ciel as his daughter continued to suck on his poison. Sebastian shook his head.
"If she was left out, then Finnian probably would have saw her, wouldn't he?" Sebastian said.
Ciel sighed. It seemed that they were far from solving this mystery. "I guess you're right... Maybe we could leave her out?"
"Suppose we did do that and she got hungry. If she saw Finnian first"--
"Alright! Alright, you don't have to finish yourself," Ciel waved off. Taking Lillith off of his chest, he looked into her large eyes that mirrored his own like he was searching for an answer. And she looked back knowingly

"Ne?" Nina whispered to herself, looking around for Kai. "Where'd he go?" She had awakened moments after Kai sneaked out, feeling a presence missing from the room. Standing up from the bunk bed, she swept across the etifice and exited, her green eyes seeing the slight trail that Kai left in gold.
(Eagle vision from Assassins Creed-very similar. If you set yourself on a target, in Eagle vision, they glow in gold and leave a golden trail behind them. I know I'm going to forget to put it in the description so I'm writing it now.)
Following it subconsiously, she soon realized that the trail led to the Phantomhive mansion. So, he's after Lillith, Nina thought. What for? Copying Kai's moves, she made her way across the front lawn, past the kitchen door, and into the garden, where she could see a black figure hovering over her friend. She hid in the shadows, ready to serve as back-up incase of violence.
Kai looked up at the stranger in shock, not making a

Prince Soma was hitting his head hard on the table. "Where, oh where, did my little sister go?!" he cried. Agni tried stopping him but he just pushed his servant away. They were sitting in their own room in the Phantomhive mannor. It had been an entire day without his little she-servant, and he was getting quite bored with just Agni. And, worst of all, he still didn't quite understand chess.
"Maybe she is somewhere in another city," Agni said. "I do hope she is alive and well, Prince Soma."
"Hoping is not enough!" Soma cried. He collapsed on his bed on his back. "I want ReRe back..." He curled up on his pillow, as he did many times before. Agni was getting tired of Soma alternating with fetile position and an emo pose in the corner. But, he pushed it away and continued to comfort his distressed prince.

Lillith left the mansion before her parents could get her to go with them. Kai and Nina were waiting for her by the front. The boy was wearing an old-fashioned hat to cover his ears and his tail was tucked unconfortably in his pants. Nina found a small blue jacket with frills to match her skirt. Lillith also changed out of her uniform and put on a black, knee-length dress with a red corset(*giggle*) and a crimson jacket. They looked a little better than poor, needy beggars.
When they were walking the streets, looking for 'Help Wanted' signs, Lillith looked into one particular window near a candy shoppe. In the reflection, there was a black carriage. It was very fancy, owned by nobles. The horses clacked by slowly, and Lillith could faintly see a couple in the black carriage.
Her parents. And Ciel was looking out the window toward Lillith with a 'WTF?' look. She quickly hid her face by turning her back and Ciel shrugged and gave up.

"It seems that there have been strange murderous reports down south of here," Sebastian said to Ciel in his office. Ciel looked over some documents on the crime. Lillith was listening too, sitting in her green recliner by the window. "The Queen wants you to end them as quickly as possible."
"It seems that we'll need to make another trip to see our 'informant' when it comes to murder mysteries," Ciel said as he got up. Noticing Lillith looking at him curiously, Sebastian turned to her.
"Would you like to come with us?" Sebastian asked his daughter. Lillith looked up at him, trying to put words together without using "Nina," "old building," or "friend."
"I... uhm..." she stuttered, trying to think of a reason to stay. Ciel looked at her.
"Oh, come on," Ciel said to her. "You have nothing better to do."
"I, uhhhh..." Lillith stammered. She finally complyed. How long could visiting an informant take?
Getting into the carriage, they waved goodbye to the staff. Lillith couldn't st

I can't just sit here like nothing happened and everything would be okay could I? Sonic seemed like he wanted to know but, something was different about him...

When I had told Sonic earlier that day, that I had been raped, and what I had been through, he didn't take it very well. At first, he thought I had problems, and thought that I had made it all up to get attention. I was so upset that he had thought that. I yelled at him and showed

I sat on my bedside feeling lost and confused. Once I confronted him- he had said he denied being there and that the necklace did not belong to him. But I know it does! Im not... Im not crazy... am I?
I laid back on my bed looking up to the ceiling dangling the necklace in front of me. I could not figure him out. He was so misterious and distant and yet so compassionate and sincere- only for a second. I needed to talk to him- urgently. I needed to know what his deal was, and why he's acting the way he is. I KNOW this belongs to him! I need answers and he knows them. Why hadn't he said a word about the tragic night of my rape? The deaths of my close friends? And he's hiding something...
I called up Sonic and told him to meet me, then I made my way out the door and walked to the creekside.
