"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. I'm just deciding what I'll make you do all that time Ciel Phantomhive serving me breakfast in bed!" The words had barely escaped him before he was laughing into one delicate han

“Do you always come here when you're troubled?”
“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.
“Thi-this is a completely different thing!” I shouted. “I saw her sit-”
I was cut off by his lips upon mine.
Instead of melting into the kiss, I pushed him away roughly and wiped my lips against the back of my hand

Chapter 2: Day 152
"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.

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."
"Great! Now, come with me!" she dragged me out of my room by my wrist and went toward the door.

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’.
“Ciel, so you do li-“
Ronald pressed his palm to her open mouth. “Well then, what shall we do now? Do you have any ideas?”
“Not really,” The dark haired guy...What was his name again? Well, never mind. He just shrugged. “What about you?”

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

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.

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

Sleep was a luxury that offered him an escape from the lonely reality he was subjected to day in and day out. It was something that he secretly looked forward to every morning. Sleep was more than generous toward the boy. Most of the time he was plunged into a dark abyss for the night, not having of any memory of anything other than falling asleep and waking up to find the sun peeking through the windows in his bedroom. It enabled him to waste away the hours without feeling anything. No worries. No emotion. No anything. All that was there for him was a vast expanse of true peace. Or what he thought w

He shifted his weight, turning over and letting his dark hair tumble down over his face. He settled again down into the soft fluffy pillow, pressing his face against the cloudlike softness and willing his brain to calm, his heart to slow and render him unconscious again so he could continue his rest.Bathtime for Bocchan3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
A sudden movement, and the silk sheets were swept off the boy, leaving him to curl his knees to his chest, shivering in the chill air outside of the warm safety of the covers. His long white nightshirt offered little warmth, and with an annoyed sound he opened his eyes.
"Wake up Bocchan. It is time to rise." A deep silky voice said, agitation fraying the corners of the easy purr.
The boy inhaled deeply. A slight look of puzzlement crossed his features, he looked around as he sat up, scanning the room. A frown bent the corners of his mo
Eius Amicus, Mortem (A Kuroshitsuji Fanfiction)Throughout Ciel Phantomhive's life, death seemed to loom over him like a violent storm just waiting to unleash its fury. It was always there. Ciel could not escape it. Every bit of happiness in his young life had been swallowed up by it. Death was not only an unwanted friend to Ciel, but to those around him. It liked to tease and taunt the boy by ripping anything and anyone that held some importance in his life away from him just when he thought he finally had a grasp on something good in his otherwise miserable existence.Eius Amicus, Mortem (A Kuroshitsuji Fanfiction)3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Sebastian, I like you! Please go out with me!"
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.
"You're Elizabeth's sister, are you not?"
She looked at me in disbelief.
"You know her?"
"Yes, in fact, I do," I answered. "Wasn't she the one that told you about me?"

The fog seemed to grow weaker as a structure peeked into my vision. My throat begins to close, tears threaten to pour as I stared at my home. Plants entangled their vines on the building. Windows were cracked, the door missing. Then I saw it. A cloaked figure placed in a rocking chair. A woman's voice sang a four note tune...the tune I grew to hate.Insanity...

While my girlfriend chirped happily about the values of the rooibos tea, I let myself wonder whatI was doing here.
I remembered meeting with Lizzie a few days ago, and she told me that she wanted Sebastian to meet Ciel, but I didn’t really listen to her when she was explaining why.
What reason could she possibly have to make two guys meet? Surely, she wasn’t expecting that they might start going out with each other...Sebastian is straight, and I’m sure of that.
That thought didn’t let me concentrate on anything else. I was abruptly brought back to reality once I realized that the whole table had fallen silent, and all three of them expectantly stared at me.
“H-huh...? Oh, sorry guys. I spaced out a little. What were you talking about?” I asked.
Lizzie puffed out her cheeks and stared at me as if I had done something wrong. I was starting to feel a little bit lost.
“I’m sorry,” she, too, turned to Sebastian

"What are you talking about?" Lizzie asked calmly, taking another sip of her orange juice.
"T-that thing yesterday... It was supposed to be a double date, right?"
“What makes you think that?"
"I-I just have this feeling..."
"You like him." It wasn’t a question. It was a statement.
I guess I’ll have to tell her the truth now... "You see, Lizzie..." I sighed. "The truth is... I-I’m..."
"You’re..." she encouraged me.
"Ah, I’m gay, goddamnit!"
The juice bottle fell out of her hands, spilling out its contents on my rug. "L-Lizzie?"
"OHMYGOD!!!! CIEL!!! I’M SOOOO HAPPY!!! IT’D BE SOOOO CUTE IF YOU WENT OUT TOGETHER!!!" She threw herself at me, hugging me and spinning in circles.
"C-calm down, Lizzie!" I managed to choke out.
"DON’T WANNA!" She squealed happily and still spun us in circles.
After a while, I began to feel dizzy, so she stopped spinning and sat down on my bed.

Finny was in the phantomhives garden, getting ready to trim the rose bushes. He was trimming away until he spotted a wild rabbit. Unfortunately while he was talking to the bunny, he was still cutting with the trimmers. He looked down and noticed all the white roses were on the ground, "No! Not again!" Tears welled up in his eyes. Ciel who had been near the back doors; heard the gardeners cry of dismay and stepped outside to see what had happened out of curiosity. His eyes found Finny and then came to rest on the roses that now littered the ground and he sighed. ''Finny...'' Finny spun around, "B-b-bo c-chan?! I-I'm sorry!! I...I wasn't paying attention!

They embraced each other as if they hadn't seen each other in years. I sighed lightly and turned to Sebastian, stretching my hand towards him in order to greet him.
“Aw, Ciel, don't be so shy!”
Lizzie pushed me forward with both hands, making me fall forward and straight into Sebastian's arms. He hugged me lightly, and I savored the feeling. His coat smelled nice.
I pulled away in embarrassment, although I honestly felt like I could stay in his arms forever.
Whoa, why am I thinking like that?
“Now!” Lizzie clapped her hands. “I have something to show you! Let's go!”
She dragged us towards a clothing store.

I was starting to worry about Ciel.
I noticed a weird change in his attitude ever since the last 'date' Ron and I scheduled for him; he would have mood swings every time I talked to him about Sebastian. One moment, he would be extremely shy but happy at the same time, the next he would be sad and depressed.
So, I decided to pay him a visit.
“Hello, swee- Oh, Lizzie! What are you doing here?” Ms. Dalles* was clearly surprised.
Ever since the car crash, Ciel has been living with his aunt. She was okay, but at times, she acted like a child, like when she invited one of her 'boyfriends' over and thus forced Ciel to spend the night with me, which caused another argument between me and my mom.
“I came to visit Ciel. Is he home?” I asked.
“I'm sure he is, darling. Do I need to show you to his room?” She asked, as if she didn't know that I had probably been here more often then she had.
“No, thank you.

"She's beautiful, yes she is." The voice was high-pitched, signaling a female.
"What did she look like?" Asked a soft toned voice, it indicated a young boy.
