Bloody Rose

By Yuuria

Romance / Thriller

Chapter 1

Story Begins...

It was a cold winter night; a girl with long wavy pink hair silently walks down the street. Her feature is seen like a fragile and delicate rose. Her complexion is pale, with rosy lips. Her figure is slender and slim dressed in a white dress that reaches her knees, with a red cloak over her. As she walks, her breath can be seen by this chilly cold night.

She arrived at her destination within half hour. Though it took her long to reach her destination, she does not seem affected by the cold. She silently glances at the gate of Cross Academy with her sapphire blue eyes. She waits as she sees someone walking towards the gate from inside. The gates open to reveal a young man with ponytail and wearing beige coat. The man smiles at her through his glasses.

The man spoke in a pleasant calm voice, "Welcome, Elena Clyne to Cross Academy. I hope your journey here was easy. Come in, come in."

Elena smiles at the man who she knew are Chairman Cross. She walked inside while the Chairman closes the gate behind her. He guided her inside the building to his office. They arrive at his office within minutes.

Elena gave a slight bow as the chairman take his seat at his desk.

"Thank you, Chairman Cross," She spoke in a soft angelic voice.

The chairman smiles and took out a file. He looks through it before looking at her.

"Elena, I have look through info about you, I have decided to place you as a Day Class Student. I hope that is fine with you."

"Yes that is fine. Will be living in a dorm with one of the female students though?" She asked curiously.

"No, I decided to have you live by yourself in your own dorm. I hope that is fine with you."

"That is fine with me, sir."

Just then, a knock came and in enters a female student with brown hair that reaches her shoulder. Her eyes are deep brown with gentle, innocence face.

The girl looks at Elena curiously. Beside the girl, another person enters the room. It is a young man, with rainy silver hair, with lavender eyes that seem to pierce your soul. His mood can be sense as dangerous or scary. The young man looks at Elena and simply frowns.

"Ah Yuuki and Zero. What good timing. Let me introduce you to Elena Clyne. She will be a student here in Cross Academy. She will be attending Day Class. Please make her feel welcome," Chairman explained to them.

Elena gave them a slight bow and smiles at them, "It is pleasure to meet you both. I am Elena Clyne."

"It is nice to meet you, Elena. I'm Yuuki Cross, Chairman's daughter and also guardian of cross academy," Yuuki smiles as she introduce herself. Then she pointed to the young man, "And this Zero Kiryuu, he is also a guardian of Cross Academy."

Zero merely stare at Elena, wondering what she is.

"Yuuki, would you be so kind to take Elena to her new dorm. The one that is empty," Chairman requested.

"Sure Chairman," Yuuki responded with a smile.

Chairman gave tears and said, "Its father. . ."

Elena watch in amusement as Yuuki spoke the word "father" hesitantly to the Chairman.

Yuuki then take Elena and take her out of the office heading towards the girl's dorm.

While they are out, Zero looks at Chairman in question.

Zero spoke in a low voice, "Chairman, what is she?"

"Hmm. . .You mean Elena?" Chairman asked as he looks at Zero.

Zero nodded.

"Well she is a difficult case. I don't know much about what she is yet. But I assure you she is not a vampire," Chairman answered with a smile. While Zero silently looks at the door that Elena left with Yuuki.


They silently walk down the halls of Cross Academy. While walking, Yuuki spoke to me in a gentle voice, talking about the academy and certain events that are usually held. I kept my silence while listening carefully. My ears listen while my eyes observe my surroundings, taking in every detail of the school as Yuuki guide me to my dorm.

As we walk, I notice a figure from a few distances walking in our direction. I glance at Yuuki, noticing her standing still, her cheeks is red. Her mouth stammers as I watch her look at the man who had walked up to us.

The man I noticed has long wavy brown hair that reaches over his shoulders, body lean and build like a prince, eyes blood-red. His eyes focus on Yuuki with gentle yet longing in his eyes. What I also noticed is that within his eyes, there is darkness that is filled with sadness as he looks at Yuuki. His lips open and spoke in calm yet loving voice that I know will make any human girls melt or faint if they hear it.

"Yuuki," he spoke softly before his eyes linger to my direction. "This is . . .?"

Yuuki quickly replied while blushing, I can tell she is nervous or rather excited due to the quiver in her voice. "Kaname-senpai, um this is Elena Clyne. She is a new transfer student, she will be joining the day class," Yuuki explained.

I gave the man named, Kaname a slight bow before meeting his blood-red eyes with my own. "It is very nice to meet you, sir. I am Elena Clyne."

As I look at him, his eyes felt like he is looking into my soul. His eyes seem to regard me with interest as he gives me a small smile.

I felt him take hold of my right hand and gently kiss my knuckles. Feeling his soft lips on my skin made me blush but also get an envy look from Yuuki. "It is a pleasure to meet you, Miss Clyne. I am Kaname Kuran, president of the Night class."

I quickly pulled my hand away from his grip, I don't know why I pulled away but I felt that I should be wary of him.

Kaname looks at me for a moment before smiling softly. "I best be off. I will see you again soon, Yuuki. And you . . . Miss Clyne." He gently places his hand on Yuuki's head before walking off towards the direction of Chairman Cross' Office.

I sigh in relief as he left. I glance at Yuuki and noticed her spaced-out with a flush face. She snapped out of her thought before continuing guiding me to my room.


Kaname Kuran

Kaname silently stride down the hall while thought of his encounter with Elena Clyne. A smile can seen from his lips. "Things will be interesting from now on, with her here in the Academy," He thought. He arrived at door to Chairman Cross' office. As he was about to open the door, he sense Kiryuu on the other side of the door. He smiles and opens the door, letting himself into the room. He ignore the glare he receive from Kiryuu and simply look at Cross.

"Good evening Cross. I happen to run into Miss Clyne earlier."

"You did, fantastic. Looks like I don't have to introduce you both, since you are already did that," Cross spoke happily. I glance at Zero with a smirk as I watch him leave the room, letting Cross and I talk in private.


Zero Kiryuu

As he left the Chairman's office, he let out a huge sigh before striding down the hallway, he head towards where the target room is instead to his room. Taking out his gun from his coat, he replace the bullets mainly use for those beasts with ordinary ones. He glances at the target sheet at a long distance.

He raises his arm, gun in hand. he pulled the trigger with quick movement, shooting only at the center of the chest and head multiple times without a miss. As he ran out of bullets, he quickly replaces them and move on to the next target sheet.

As he shoots, thoughts about the new transfer student stirred in his mind. His senses tell him that Elena Clyne is someone in the same league as Kuran. But he also sense sadness and pain within her. He decide to ignore this feeling he get from her. What is left for him to decide is whether she is a friend or a foe.

With that last thought, he shot his last bullet at the target before finishing up for the day.
