Chapter 7

Usui's POV:

I heard a voice. Calling my name. I looked around. It was similar to Misaki's voice. I saw Gerald run to me.

"Misaki!" he exclaimed, "Save her!"

I started running past him. I ran to the voice. There were men that were carrying her away. They saw me and dropped her. My string broke. I started to attack them.

"We need back up", said one man.

More men came, and I beat them one by one.

"How dare you take my princess away from me", I said darkly.

The men kept coming at me. It was kind of getting boring. They were really weak. I kept looking at Misaki to see if she was alright. She was on the floor. I pushed the people away and picked her up. I started running towards one room. Misaki was still unconscious. I set her down on a couch and started to examine her. I looked at her carefully. She was soundly asleep. They must've made her sleep. I sighed and leaned against the couch. I slammed my hand to the floor. There was a crunch on the floor and it left a hole on the floor.

"Opps", I grumbled.

I looked at Misaki and stroked her hair.

"You idiot", I said sighing, "Why do you always get into trouble like this."

I smiled and kissed her forehead.

There was a knock on the door. I froze. The door opened and it was Gerald.

"Is she ok?" he asked.

I nodded.

"They're looking for you", he said, "Grandfather is behind this."

"I know", I replied coldly.

"You need to stop grandpa", he said.

"Why don't you?" I asked.

"You're the only one that can stop him", he said.

"What makes you say that?" I asked.

"Think about it", he said, "Why would grandpa make you the heir instead of me?"

"Because I'm better than you", I said smoothly.

"N...no!" He exclaimed, "That's not true!"

"Then if you want it so much, why don't you take my place?" I asked.

"I would if I could, but unfortunately, that's impossible to do", Gerald answered.

"What makes you say that?" I asked.

"Grandfather trusts you more, plus you will live more longer than me", he explained, "You know me and my smoking."

"Thats why you should quit", I answered.

"It's hard", he said

"No it's not", I said.

"Well, I can't do anything about it", he said.

I sighed and leaned against the couch, running fingers through my hair.

"Well, when will grandfather stop testing Misaki?" I asked, "I'm getting angry when I see her hurt."

"Well, she's trying her best", he said.

I nodded. Misaki started to wake up.

"Where am I?" she asked.

"Ah Ayuzawa", I said smiling, "Good afternoon."

Misaki saw me and tried to slap my face. I held her hand.

"How dare you not come for me at the right time!" Misaki exclaimed.

She tried to keep her tears back while she struggled under my arms.

"I was scared!" Misaki exclaimed.

I hugged her tightly.

"I'm sorry Ayuzawa", I said softly.

Misaki stopped struggling and started crying. She was shaking a lot. I couldn't take this anymore. I wanted her happy not stressed. I don't want to hurt her anymore.

"Misaki", I said quietly.

"Yes?" she asked.

"Would you like...to go back?" I asked quietly.

She stayed silent.

"I know how you're stressed and scared here and I don't want you to feel like that. I want you smiling", I said, "If you want I can book and flight ba-."

"No", she said.

"What?" I asked.

"No", she said backing away from my embrace to see my eyes.

"But Misaki-" I started to say.

"I want to be with you", she said looking down, "I can't possibly think of being in Japan without you for the longest period of time. I'm not prepared for it. Please let me stay with you."

I was shocked at what she had said.

"Misaki", I said, "I don't want anything happening to you."

"As I said", she said, "I'm up for any challenge, but this. This was too extreme."

"I know", I said, "I'll go talk with him."

"No", she said, "I'll go talk with him."

"Misaki no", I said.

"Please", she pleaded.

I sighed. I looked at her. Her eyes had a burning passion for revenge. I laughed weakly.

"Oh Ayuzawa", I said softly.

I touched her cheek.

"You're so brave", I whispered seductively.

She blushed and pushed me away.

"I'll go talk to him right now", she said.

"I want to come with", I said.

"No", she said sternly.

"Let me come", I pleaded.

She looked at me with anger yet confident eyes.

"Trust me", she said.

"Nope", I said.

I grabbed her arm and dragged her out of the room.

"W..wait...Usui...Let go!" She protested

"You think you're the only one that can't hold anger?" I said angrily, "I want to talk to him."

Misaki stopped me.

"Usui", she said.

"Ayuzawa", I said, "I want to protect you and I want you by my side. I don't want anyone making you go back. I don't want anyone hurting you. I can't protect you that easily. I can't be there on time. I want to be that guardian angel that protects the princess. So let me come."

I stared at her with stern eyes. She scoffed and laughed.

"I love your enthusiasm", she said confidently.

She took my arm and dragged me to the grandfather's room. She slammed open the door. My grandfather was there with some men. It looked like he was in a meeting.

"Miss. Ayuzawa", my grandfather said in a low voice.

"Sorry for intruding but I have to say something", said Misaki.

"Whatever you want to say will you save it when I'm finished?" He asked.

"No", she said, "You will ignore me. So might as well take the chance now!"

The men around him whispered. That made grandfather nervous.

"Go to your room", he said.

"No I won't until you hear me out!" Misaki growled, "What you did today was way overboard!"

"Can you not see that I am busy right know?" he asked.

Grandfather looked at me. I shrugged my shoulders and smiled. Misaki was on a role, so I just let her be.

"What you have done today was the worst of them all", she said sternly, "Trying to kidnap me, making me want to go back to Japan, and trying to do hurt me."

"Enough", he said quietly.

"What do you know about me? What did I ever do to you?" Misaki asked, "Why do you want me to leave? Why do you hate me?!"

"ENOUGH!" he boomed.

The room was quiet. I looked calmly at my grandfather.

"I will talk to you after I finish this. Takumi stay here", he said darkly.

"I don't want to", I said plainly.

Grandfather gritted his teeth.

"It's boring", I said calmly, "I didn't to be here in the first place. You brought me here and I'm not going to stay here and be forced to do things that I don't want to do."

"Takumi..", grandfather growled.

"Now excuse us", I said, "I believe I need to pack my bags to leave to Japan."

I bowed and grabbed Misaki's hand and took her out of the room. We quickly ran to our rooms.

"Start packing", he said.

Misaki nodded. We started packing. We finished in minutes. We sneaked to steal a car. There were men standing near the gates. They opened it. Takumi sped out quickly. The security started chasing us. I started speeding.

"Usui!" Misaki exclaimed, "Be careful!"

"Relax", I said smirking, "Let's have a little fun."

"You call this fun?!" Misaki exclaimed, "There are speed limits here!"

"Ayuzawa", I said smiling, "Let's break the rules."

Misaki screeched when I started to speed up more. We lost the security for a while. I grabbed my phone and called the airport.

"Can you get a private jet ready in 3 minutes?" I asked.

"USUI! SLOW DOWN!" Misaki exclaimed.

"Just wait for a couple of ", I said sweetly.

Miskai held her stomach. She looked sick. We sped to the private jet. We got out and ran to the jet. There were people waiting there.

"Welcome to-" she started to say.

"Yes thank you, we are in a hurry so please start the plane right now", I said breathless.

She was confused and nodded.

"Start the plane", she said in a walkie talkie.

We ran up the stairs and went inside the jet. We saw another car come up. The door closed and the plane began to move.

"STOP THE PLANE!" screamed one man.

"Too late", I whispered.

We were in the air at once. Misaki leaned back and breathed hardly clutching her chest.

"Usui", she said, "I'm never letting you drive again."

I chuckled and leaned into her.

"At least we escaped", I said smiling.

Misaki blushed and backed up.

"Baka Usui", she said.

"We aren't going to Japan", I said.

"But you said-", she started.

"Misaki", I chuckled, "We're going to Europe."

"But", she said.

"I don't want to get caught and I don't want them hurting you", I said.

Misaki nodded. I smiled and kissed her forehead.

"Sleep for now", I said.

Misaki blushed and nodded. She closed her eyes and slept. I looked out the window and at the clouds. Grandfather, you want to play hard? I accept that challenge.

Misaki's POV:

My eyes snapped open when Usui gently nudged me. Outside was dark.

"Ladies and gentlemen we will be landing in 5 minutes", said the captain.

Usui smiled.

"Hey", he whispered.

I was really tired. My body was aching.

"Ayuzawa", he said, "I know you're tired, but we have to quickly get to the car that's waiting for us."

I nodded. Once the plane landed, we quickly went to the car. Inside the car was Shintani.

"Shintani", I said surprised.

"Miski!" He exclaimed.

He hugged me quickly and tightly.

"C...can't breathe", I said.

Shintani pulled back and wiped his eyes.

"We heard you were in danger", he said, "So we came for you."

"When did you arrive here?" I asked.

Shintani rubbed his head.

"Yesterday", he said smugly, "Usui called for help."

I looked at Usui surprised. Usui looked away.

"I had no choice", Usui said.

"Is my sister doing well?" I asked.

Shintani looked worried and rubbed his head.

"Well, she came with me", he said.

I grabbed his collar.

"You WHAT?!" I exclaimed.

Shintani winced and smiled nervously.

"She wanted to come", he said.


"Ne Oneechan", said Suzana, "I can protect myself too."

Suzana came out of the car.

"I want to help you Oneechan", she said.

"But, I don't want to lose you", I said.

"But it's better to not lose you Oneechan", Suzana said, "That's why I want to protect you too. I don't want you just protecting me. I want to help and be useful in your life too."

I sighed.

"We better hurry and get to the hotel", Suzana said.

She got in the car. I shot Shintani a stare. He smiled and rubbed his head. I sighed. We got in the car and Shintani started driving. The scene outside was very beautiful and breathtaking. I was falling asleep. Usui nudged me and smiled.

"Sleep Ayuzawa", he said.

I closed my eyes. Usui gently pushed my head against his shoulder.

"Sleep my maid", he said smoothly.

I closed my eyes and enjoyed the night ride in Italy.
