"Beloved... a week after I heard that beautiful name my brother died" - Ritsuka Aoyagi
Soubi looked in the bathroom mirror lightly tracing along his scars with his index finger, he was Beloved... he was treated as Seimei's property and yet he couldn't get over it was he really that easily thrown away?, why... why did he do all of this? he never really understood anything that went through Seimei's head but this?, why did he continue to control him even now if Seimei were here in front him he had no choice... that's how strong his influence is on Soubi "Seimei is my god..." he muttered to himself in a hushed breath. It was Seimei's orders to love Ritsuka and that's why he couldn't give up on Loveless, it was an order from Seimei so he would do as he's told, and after getting to know Ritsuka he learned that wouldn't be that hard to do. He was really falling in love with loveless as ironic and contradicting as that is it's true... loveless, one without love that was Ritsuka Aoyagi in a nutshell he's just too closed off to fall in love, he built his walls around him and caged himself inside he just kept to himself and blocked off others, but Soubi was slowly but surely picking at that wall and one day it will come crumbling down. After meeting Soubi Ritsuka even made some friends Yuiko and Yayoi.
Soubi's head turned to his phone when he heard it ring, it was Ritsuka... he calmly flipped open the phone hearing Ritsuka on the other end freaking out again he always did this when Soubi didn't answer right away...
"Soubi!, where have you been you promised me!, you told me if it was a call from me you would definitely answer it!"
"Calm down Ritsuka, I'm here..."
"It's been a week and you weren't picking up the phone!, you know how I hate it when you do this to me!..." why did Soubi always break his promises?, how come he messed with his head so much...
"Ritsuka?" he walked into the living room after wrapping back up the bandages around his neck and Kio frowned at him talking to Ritsuka again, 'why does he keep talking to this kid?, he has pictures of him and everything this was becoming an obsession...' he really didn't want to see his friend get hurt again...
"What?" Soubi smiled to himself leaning on a wall and watching as a bright blue butterfly flew by, how he loved butterflies and they always seemed to follow him around
"I love you"
"Stop saying that!" Soubi was always like this... he reminded him constantly you could hear a swoosh as Ritsuka jumped into bed into his fluffy blue blanket.
"No" he smiled at Loveless and just imagined how cute he looked curled up in a ball hugging a pillow like he often did and his face turning red he was enjoying this conversation.
"Soubi!, I thought you were supposed to do what I say!"
"And I wont lie to you, I really do love you..."
"Just because you say something doesn't mean you mean it!, Seimi told you to... if you loved me like you say you do you would tell me what you know about my brother!"
great... now he was crying
"I told you before that's something I can't tell you, I only want whats best for you..."
"Shut up!, I'm tired of all the broken promises and all the lies!, you tell me you love me and when you kiss me it feels real and yet you ignore my calls and lie to me!" He wiped away his tears with his sleeve
"I'm coming over..."
"No!, I don't want to hear it!, all it does is confuse me more!..." he already hung up and was on his way... his ears pulled back low adgainst his head and his tail hung off the edge of the bed as he tried to stop the tears before Soubi came "Stupid Soubi..."
Soubi was speed walking down the street at 10:00 and he saw Ritsuka's friend standing outside for some reason "Yuiko?, you shouldn't be out so late at night where are your parents?" he asked concerned
Yuiko ran to the only adult she knew other than her teachers or parents "Soubi!, Oh Im glad to see you! I'm scared... they went on a week long vacation and I was supposed to head back home and they had a babysitter but there was a break in! when I was at shcool and she was killed!, It was so scary and I don't know what to do I can't go home because the babysitter had the keys and they stole it!, what if their in there? Im not taking any chances..."
Well that was alot to take in... "okay, you can stay with me I guess for now..." although he'd have to explain to Kio why he was suddenly bringing a middle shcool girl home with him...
"Thank you Soubi!, you don't wanna know how long I spent out here alone it was terrible..."
Ritsuka had to wait... now he had to deal with making sure pink hair girl was safe and Ritsuka's situation... he jotted down a quick note and handed it to Yuiko
This girl's name is Yuiko and she's a friend of Ritsuka's, she is in a bit of a situation and long story short she'll be staying for awhile I'll
explain further later.
Yuiko headed to Soubi's while he went to Ritsuka's house through the window, and it happened just like he thought it would Soubi knocked lightly on the glass and as soon as Soubi was inside he felt two little arms wrap around him tightly followed by Ritsuka's voice. "Soubi!" he called out to the older male
"I saw a butterfly today!"
Soubi smiled remembering how on the ferris wheel he saw a butterfly and it reminded him of Soubi and he was upset he couldn't catch it. "did you catch it?"
Ritsuka smiled wide "Yeah!, I did it!" he opened his hands and showed Soubi the same bright blue butterfly from earlier
"It still reminds you of me?"
Ritsuka blushed hiding his face slightly but Soubi could still see and he smiled softly as the butterfly flew away out the still open window "N-no! don't fly away!" Soubi turned Ritsuka's head and looked him straight in the eye and caressed his cheek lovingly with his thumb "Its still here..." he said before closing the distance between them and kissing him gently on the lips smiling as he did so and he looked at Ritsuka'd blushing red face as he slowly pulled back "I love you, and everything I do I do it for you Ritsuka, don't you ever forget I'm your fighter and I belong to you, and you alone."
Meanwhile back at Soubi's Yuiko rang the doorbell and handed Kio the Note that Soubi had written, he just shrugged and let her in, he would have to ask Soubi more about this but for now she looked cold and hungry... he gave her a blanket, a furry one that was the same shade of purple as Soubi's jacket. And he gave her a bowl of ramen it may not be as great as Soubi's spectacular cooking but it was food.
"Thank you, your like really good friends with Soubi-Kun aren't you? and what's your name it starts with a K right?""
he nodded "It's Kio and yeah, we go to shcool together, so... I hear your a friend of Ritsuka's?"
Yuiko blushed a little at the mere mention of Ritsuka's name "Y-yeah..." that was all she could manage to say before she ended up dumping the ramen all over herself "U-Uhhh Im sorry!, I'll clean this up right away!" good thing there wasn't any broth or Yuiko would have been burned, she cleaned up the mess she had made and then crashed on the couch for the night after talking with Kio for a little while.
