The moon shines brightly through the windows and enlightens my mirror image. I'm wearing a strapless white dress and white lilies decorate my long gray bluish hair. A grumble rolls over my lips when I look at myself. "Seriously, why did I even bother to dress up so fancy! Tch, it's just some stupid prom anyway!" An amused snicker startles me and almost makes me squeak.
"It's not just any prom you know, it's an honor to be invited to the Red Moon-prom."
Annoyed I turn around and look at the smirking young man behind me.
"You mean it's an honor for you, because you were invited. I'm just you're little pet, following you everywhere the oh mighty Lord Sebastian wishes to go to."
A sly grin spreads on his perfect lips as his eyes turn slightly pink.
"I just love that stubborn and dominant personality of yours. But you know, my love
" He wraps his strong arms around my waist and pulls me close to his chest. "You should give up already, I'm the master now, remember." My heart skips a beat as my cheeks start to flush when he tilts up my chin and when his lips are only an inch away from mine. "And I'm not planning on letting my maid talk to me like that." Then he closes the gap between us and kisses me passionate while stroking my hair tenderly.
What a strange person he is, this man, this demon
a few months ago I was the young earl Ciel Phantomhive, proprietress of my own toy factory Funtom Company. And now
now I am Ciel Phantomhive, the maid of my formal demon butler, Sebastian Michaelis. Ha! The bitter irony! Many things have happened in a very short time, I became Sebastian's lover, was attacked by poisonous demon crows, got hysterical and mortally ill and as a last desperate move Sebastian turned me into a demon.
After teasing me for a while Sebastian suddenly grabs a hairbrush and starts to brush my hair. "You don't have to do that you know, my hair looks fine." I say while a frown spreads on my features. But Sebastian just smiles and continues to brush my hair.
"I know, but I love to do this." I didn't even bother to ask why, who knows what kind of response I'll receive. A sigh escapes my lips and tired I look out of the window at the moon.
"Yes, my Love?"
"Can you tell me more about that Red Moon-prom?"
A chuckle rolls over those perfect lips of him as he tenderly strokes my shoulder.
"Ah, I haven't really explained it to you did I? Forgive me, I will give you the proper explanation now.You see, the Red Moon-prom is a famous party here in the demon world that is held every two years. And the reason why I am invited as an honor guest is simply because the one who holds this fabulous party, is no other then my old black magic tutor, Daimon."
Daimon? What a peculiar name. "Ah so because you were his pupil you're the honor guest."
"Indeed." Sebastian puts the brush back on the dressing table and reaches his hand out to me."Well, shall we go my Lady?" Oh, I would love to wipe that smirk of his face. He's lucky that he's stronger than me or I would teach him a lesson.
"If the great Lord wishes to leave, then his loyal pet will follow him everywhere."
The smirk on his handsome face turns into a grin as I take his hand.
"I just love that sarcasm of yours, although you should learn to behave more like a 'pet', my little butterfly."
Somehow I just keep feeling awkward, I feel kind of naked with my bare arms and shoulders and a big part of my dress is showing my legs. But that isn't the only reason I feel like this. I feel uneasy, one: because of all those demons around me, staring hungrily at me, like I'm a lamb ready for the slaughter. And two because I'm in my demon form.
Apparently you have to appear in your demon form to attend this party, which I'm not used to. Sebastian sees the uneasy look on my face, smiles and holds my hand. "It's ok, my love. Nothing will happen to you, you're safe with me."
A little smile spreads on my lips as I walk closer to him, I guess he's right. Sebastian is strong, probably much stronger than most demons here. But still, as a newborn I can't help but to feel so weak. I can't help but to wonder if Sebastian isn't ashamed to walk next to me. There are so many beautiful women here, maybe showing more skin then necessary, but still much prettier than me. And they're probably much more powerful than me to, with all kinds of talents and skills. I wonder if Sebastian notices how admiring and lustful they're looking at him. Licking their lips and giggling when we pass by.
Great, now I feel so ugly with my small and kind of flat chested figure. What does Sebastian think of me anyway? Curious I look up at the crow demon and can't help but to be mesmerised. Those ruby almond-shaped eyes, that black silky hair and his pale skin. If humans would see him right now, they would be terrified though. His sharp fangs reminding me of a vampire, those ridiculous long black nails and those gigantic black feathered wings. And oh God, those high-heeled boots and that tight black leather clothing, make him look so irresistible!
The crow demon notices that I'm staring at him as a grin spreads on his perfect lips. "Like what you see, my love?" Just when I open my mouth to tell him to shut up I hear footsteps coming closer to us. "Malphas, my boy! You haven't changed one bit!" Surprised the both of us look up. Malphas? What kind of name is that? To my surprise I see a strange demon walking towards us. He has long blond hair that reaches to his hips and his golden eyes emit wisdom and tranquility. I also notice that he has weird black tattoos all over his body and because of his fox ears and six tails I know he's a mighty kitsune.
A big smile spreads on Sebastian's face, when he looks up at the man, slightly baring his fangs. "Daimon-sensei, it's been a while. I see you still bother to keep contact with your old pupil." Daimon?! So that was Sebastian's old black magic tutor?! Man
he looks actually very young for such an old man
"Of course I do, especially with my favorite pupil!" Suddenly the kitsune lays his eyes on me and smirks.
"Ah, is this one of your lovers?"
My jaw drops a few inches. Wait what?! ONE of his lovers?!
My crow demon rolls his eyes as he wraps possessive an arm around my waist. "Haha, you still have the same bad humor as in the past sensei. This is Ciel, my great and ONLY love."
Daimon snickers and smiles at me. "Nice to meet you Ciel, my name is Daimon. And I have to say you impressed me by stealing this cold ice cube his heart. You must have bewitched him or something!"
Ashamed I feel how my cheeks start to flush as he suggestively wiggles his eyebrows. Did he mean instead of bewitching
sex?! How terribly rude! I swear, I'll never understand those demons. Sebastian doesn't dare to laugh or make a perverted comment, he already learned a long time ago that you never should ask a Victorian girl such a question. "Sensei, please don't say such things when Ciel is around, she's a newborn you see and she lived in a very prude time if you know what I mean
Understanding the fox demon nods, I think he understands it very clearly, in fact I think he already knew but just wanted to pester me! Why that old sneaky fox! Asking perverted things at young girls such as myself! "For your information Sebastian, they call that being a Lady and not prude. It's not because I'm descent and don't behave like those women around us, that I'm a nun!" The two demons blink surprised their eyes and burst after that out in laughter, at the same time.
"Haha! Malphas, for a moment I thought your new treasure was a pipsqueak, but she sure has guts for talking like that to you!" He pats brotherly Sebastian's back and looks smirking at me. "You've got my approval. Malphas, when you get home act like a demon lover and make love to her all night long!" Almost I had a nosebleed. Almost.
"Wait what?!" I start to blush furiously as my eyes widen in surprise. Startled I look at my lover, only to see that same annoying grin on his face as his old tutor.
To save, what is still left of my pride, I turn around and walk away. "I'm going to get a drink!" I wish Sebastian would come after me and apologize for his tutors unacceptable behavior, but he doesn't, he just stays by Daimon's side and laughs about something that is apparently funny. Probably me.
And why does that perverted Kitsune keep calling him Malphas? Is that some sort of demon nick name? Oh wait, Sebastian isn't his real name, it's just the name I gave him. So
that means Malphas is his real name
? He's my lover and yet I never asked him about his real name nor his demon life. Maybe he has a family here and friends
I'm so occupied by my thoughts that I don't notice my surroundings and bump accidently into a woman. With a loud thud I fall onto the ground, right on my buttocks. "Aw! That hurts you little wench, watch where you're going next time!" Surprised I look up at a dog demon who's showing way to much skin. She's hurt? I've just fallen on my bloody butt!
"Darcia, that's no way of treating a Lady. Maybe I should teach you some manners." Startled the rude woman and I look up. A gasp almost escapes my lips as I discover where the voice came from. It's a tall young man with marvelous purple eyes and dark brown hair that turns black at the ends of his hair. His pale skin looks like it's made from silk and half of his well-toned chest is visible because of his ancient Greek clothing.
"Are you ok, love?" He asks with his velvet and melodic voice while offering me his hand.
Slightly blushing the girl accepts my hand and lets me help her up. Her smooth skin feels warm under my touch and her cheeks turn a cute pink shade. "Thank you, Mister
"Calypso, my name is Calypso. And what is your name, love?"
I ask while I look into her big bi colored eyes. What peculiar eyes she has, one has a beautiful royal blue color and the other has a lavender shade. "Ciel
A last name? She must be a human who was turned into a demon recently.
"Ciel? Well that's a beautiful name." This girl
is so different from all the other females here. She looks so fragile and innocent with her small and slim figure. And while all the girls are wearing revealing, dark and skinny clothes, she's wearing an elegant white dress that makes her look so graceful. And with the white lilies in her bluish- grey hair and the gigantic blue butterfly wings on her back, she looks like a fairy.
Just when I'm about to ask her with who she came to the party, I hear an awfully familiar voice call the girls name. "There you are Ciel! I've been looking everywhere for yo-" His eyes widen for a second when his eyes fall on me. His smile turns into a poker face and his eyes have that same cold and hard look like they used to. "Hello Calypso."
"Hello Malphas, it has been a long time since I've seen you."
I knew that sooner or later I would bump into him, but I never had thought to find him together with Ciel. "Yes indeed, although not long enough." That bastard is holding MY Ciel's hand. Speaking of Ciel, she looks rather confused. "Do you two know each other?"
She curiously asks while looking from Calypso at me. "Unfortunally we do." I mumbled while glaring at the man. "Yes, you see love. Malphas and I were both Daimon's pupils."
My lovers jaw drops and surprise is written all over her face. Normally I would think that it looks cute, but now I'm to agitated for that. "Ciel, there still are some people who I want to introduce you to." I said before grabbing her wrist and walking away with her. "Let's go."
"Not so fast, my friend." Annoyed I turn around and notice how Calypso has grabbed Ciel's other hand. A mischievous grin is curled around his lips as he looks at me with those sly purple eyes. "I still owe he little lady a dance, for the small accident from a few minutes earlier." Before I can even say a word, he drags Ciel to the dance floor and leaves me alone with my bitter hatred.
Helplessly I turn my head and look at Sebastian. I want to go back to him, but I know that as a lady it is terribly rude to decline a man's offer for a dance. So a bit uncomfortable I follow Calypso to the dance floor. My heart starts to beat faster as he gently wraps an arm around my waist and pulls me closer. "Don't worry, love. I don't bite." Such a melodic and soft voice he has
An uneasy laugh rolls over my lips as I rest a hand on his shoulder and start to dance.
I don't really like the song, it sounds so mysterious, so
Discreetly I search for Sebastian at the side line of the dance floor and when my eyes meet his, I feel a lump in my throat. He looks so sad and so
worried. "It's quite rude to look at another man while you're dancing with someone, love." Surprised I look back at Calypso and my cheeks start to flush when I notice how close his face is to mine. "Calypso, uhm
"Ciel, there's something I would like to tell you." He says while moving his face close to my ear. A cold shiver rolls down my spine as I feel his warm breath on my ear and as he softly whispers. "You'll"be mine."
