(With the vampires)
“Are you certain you two are gonna be alright, Tsukune?” Tsukune’s mother asked worryingly.
“Yes mother. I swear we’ll be alright.”
“Tsukune and I will be just fine Miss Aono,” Moka chimed in.
“Son, j-just take care of yourself. Please,” said the boy’s father.
“I promise father.”
With final words shared amongst the male vampire and his parents, Moka and Tsukune transformed into their vampire forms and took flight, letting out a sonic shockwave that rumbled the neighborhood. Tsukune’s parents had nearly lost their balance thanks to it. (A/N: Yes, username pun intended there.) The vampires themselves flew upwards until they passed the cloud barrier of the sky. Thankfully the storm was over and the skies were becoming clear.
After breaking past the clouds that were held above them, the vampire couple started flying to the east, towards the rising sun of a new day (A/N: Japanese pun if no one caught that). They followed the scent of flames that still lingered in the air, unfortunately for Kuyo, the rainstorm didn’t wipe the smell away from the atmosphere. They followed their laid out trail for hours before stopping at this small village in the woods, far from Tsukune’s hometown.
“This looks like a good place to settle down for a while,” spoke the male vampire as he reattached his holy lock.
“What is this place?” Moka asked quizzically.
“I don’t know. Kinda looks like a small settlement area. I’ve heard of these places being nearby certain towns in Japan.” (A/N: No research done here. This is all part of the story’s plot.)
“Yeah. They’re mostly hidden in woodland areas. It’s next too impossible to find them without knowing where they are. I suppose that we found it by pure luck.”
The two started to walk into the small settlement and noticed how much larger the interior of the village was once they entered it. They saw a small bazaar looking area with different looking pottery and jewelry. The vampires were in aww and amazement of the scenery that was displayed before them. The buildings were cozy looking, large enough to house a small family of four at most.
“Tsukune, this place is fascinating.”
“I know.” The young male began daydreaming to himself what it would be like to raise a family with his vampire love. He shook his head away from the thought when he remembered everyone else is still in the bad guys’ hands.
“Tsukune? What’s the matter, love?”
“N-nothing. Just my imagination going AWOL,” he joked.
“What were you imagining?”
“A possible future for us. Just something to put into the bag for future reference,” he said with a small blush on his tanned face.
“Oh,” was her only reply with a much bigger blush.
Soon the residence of the village started pouring out of their respected houses. Every one of them stopped once they got sight of the vampire couple. The two in question just stood there as the villagers circled around them.
“Please tell me you’re getting a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang kind of feeling right now?” Tsukune questioned.
“You never saw that movie?”
“Never even heard of that. A lot of time was spent locked away thanks to the rosary while my mother’s clone did all the walking around for us. And then that time was spent crying her eyes out through depression and then some studying when that dark phase of her life was done.”
“Didn’t she have any time to watch movies?”
“I think that question is best saved for when we aren’t being surrounded by a confused army of villagers.”
Soon, one of the villagers began walking up towards the two with a sneer and angry scowl. “Who are you two and what are you doing in our village?” the angry villager asked.
“We are sorry sir,” Tsukune spoke. “We just arrived by accident. I’m sorry that we intruded into your village without consent.”
“My betrothed and I were just doing one of our annual hiking trips that we’ve done for the last 3 years,” Moka chimed in, giving Tsukune a huge blush at the word betrothed.
“Without any supplies?” the villager asked.
“We lost our way about 2 days ago and our supplies were all used up,” the female vampire lied. “Unfortunately we haven’t been able to find any roads or towns. Is there any way we can stay here for some time?”
The elderly looking figure just gave a questionable look at the two and decided, “I will have to take this to the village council and have them decide your fate.” With his final words to the couple, the figure left them and everyone dispersed from their huge circle to continue their daily routine, while giving the couple the stink eye.
“Betrothed?” Tsukune questioned.
“It seemed to work at the time,” she replied.
“Sometimes you scare me with how manipulative you can be.”
“Manipulative? When have I been manipulative?”
“I think scaring everyone into submission suffices in this case.”
Moka wanted to retort but shook her head from side to side softly once she took into account how right he was. “Fair point. Good point actually. But admit it, you are just as scared of me.”
“I am. But that doesn’t mean I don’t love you any less,” he said as he kissed the top of her head.
The two let out a small giggle right before the same elderly figure came up to them and told them to follow him towards the council house at the village’s center. They walked for five minutes till they arrived at the designated building where the village’s council would dictate whether or not they stay. To be brief, Tsukune’s own heart was racing because of the tension. Sensing his discomfort, Moka squeezed his hand to calm him down. Tsukune took this and instantly leaned into her touch.
The three people walked into the tiny building and stood before a council of four different middle aged people consisting of two women and two men. Their eyes shined with burning fires that had shown years of harsh experience. Instantaneously, both vampires lost all confidence and comfort in each other. They were in for the debate of their lives.
