daichi hovered behind her "that was silly"
(still no email)
((I know, I know))
Rascal gave him a look that could freeze the sun after she got herself on her feet. “I don’t like you.”
"im not particularly fond of you either" daichi confessed "but i am doing the right thing offering you a home" rascal knew he was right, the cities and areas around normal humans was not the best place for her to be
She pulled herself off the bank. "I said no, and I meant it!" She turned and began walking, but ran into an invisible barrier.
another male stood infornt of her, he resembled Daichi allot except for his hair was jet black and his face was pulled into a scowl.
daichi regarded the male "brother, do not be harsh to our guest"
the other male snapped back "do not be rash and recless showing human scum what we are!"
Rascal looked at Daichi, since he was the only one she could see, though she could hear his brother as well as him. “Ask him why, if humans are such scum, he disguises himself as one?” Rascal had the unmarred reputation of being able to say the wrong thing at the wrong time to the wrong person and being able to get out of it alive.
even as she spoke daichi jumped infront of her, holding his hand out as a blade apeared and cut through his hand.
his brother Screamed "YOU THINK THERE IS A CHOICE!!" as he plunged the blade into daichi palm
his figuere was becoming more recognisable as he faded into sight
Leaping to the side, Rascal glared. “Of course there is! I’m not staying here!” she shouted. “What do you think I am? Property?”
daichi mutterede "actualy...you kidna are.."
the brother pushed daichi aside, seeming not to care that he had just stabed his palm "thats right! your family serve us, your mother served us, your grandmother served us, your ancesters served us! you are bound by blood to serve the residence of this island as is the debt your family owe!" is voice was agressive and brutal, the opposite of daichi's wich was soft and charming
daichi glared at his brother and began bickering with him "Renpu! stop being so harsh to the girl, she is confused enough as it is! and it was me her ancesters made the pact with and not you! so it is me whom decides!" even though he was yelling his voice did not sound anyware near as brutal as his brothers Renpu...
Rascal froze. "Wh-what? What do you know about my mother?"
"she lived with us most of the time... so allot realy" daichi replied honestly
Her face hardened. "So, while I was on the streets taking care of myself, she was being your servant?"
"no... she had died shortly after your birth and your father was supose to look after you... but i saw you alone... im sorry i left you like that"
Renpu piped up "dont be sorry for an ungratefull brat, her mother was just as bad! she hated us and never even told us about a child"
"no renpu, she hated you, i knew about rascal."
Rascal couldn't help it. She burst into tears, rocking back and forth.
before his brother could make a snide remark, daichi scooped rascal up in his arms and liften them both high above the ground "please rascal, reconsider joining us, it is safe dispite my brothers attitude, and there are other you should meet like your elder sister"his voice was soothing and trying to give her hope
She pushed at his chest. “Let me go! Let me go! If nobody cared about me then, nobody cared about me now!” she shouted, trying to hit him
"i care and always have, for your entire family, i have protected them through everything, not a single of your ancester died in war or plauge because of me, and i dont want you to die of strvation or disease" as he spoke he flew back to the mansion, and landed on a balcony on the roof "please calm down and think, do you realy want to live on the streets, or do you want to live in comfort, well fed, and learn about your family?"
"I want to live on the streets," she answered immediatley.
