Evangeline

Chapter Text

Yui felt the bed dip and her eyes snapped open. Laito was at her legs giving her a heated look. "Ah, my sweet Bitch-chan." He sighed. "I want to feast on your body tonight." He let out a giggle. "You have been making us wait too long."

Ayato shoved Laito away and growled. "All her firsts are to be Yours Truly, back off."

Laito growled and shoved Ayato back and grasped his shirt. "We can take her together, brother." He growled.

Yui shifted away while to brothers continued to fight, and bolted from the room. She ran down the corridor towards the stairs. She was yanked back and pinned to the wall by Subaru. "Where are going in such a hurry?"

Yui gulped. "I...Ayato and Laito..." Subaru narrowed his eyes and let out a low growl and shifted away from her as he heard Ayato and Laito call her name. Yui turned on her heel and ran towards the stairs taking them two at a time. She ran down the corridor towards the gardens. She bumped into someone and fell on her back and let out a grunt as she hit the floor.

She looked up and saw Reiji standing above her, glaring at her. "Why are you running, you know it's bad manners to be running." He smirked and leaned down closer to her and straddled her hips. He grabbed her wrists and slammed them above her head, making her yelp in pain. "I will have to punish you, to teach you some manners." He leaned closer and nuzzled her neck, his breathing heavy against hers.

She felt his weight being lifted from her and saw Shu shove him away. He bent down and grasped Yui's arm and yanked her from the floor. "What do you think you were doing with her?" He hissed. "I thought we said we would wait."

Shu shoved her behind him and faced off with Reiji." I think you know my dear brother, I am not a patient man. I say I take her now, and claim her once and for all." Reiji growled.

Shu let out a low growl, and he stepped closer to Reiji. Yui backed away and ran towards the doors which she knew would be here freedom. She didn't understand what they were talking about. They wanted to 'claim' her?

She got to the doors and flung them open. The warm air brushed against her skin as she ran down the path, towards the forest. The full moon her only light to guide her. She pushed her legs harder when she heard laughter behind her, she just had to make it out of there.

A hand grabbed her and pulled her down to the ground near some bushes she had past. She let out a shriek when she saw Ayato above her with a grin on his face. "And where do you thing you're going, chichinashi?"

She began to tremble as she saw the others gathered above her with heated eyes. She looked back at Ayato. "I...I"

Her words were cut off when he attacked her neck, biting down. She let out a scream, and he clamped his hand over her mouth as he continued to feed. He pulled back and licked his lips. "Now you will learn that you belong to us. The night is still young, and we aren't going to let you go." He ripped at her clothes as the others joined him. Some grabbing her arms pinning them above her head, so held her legs, as Ayato continued to shred her clothes. She felt the bites begin when Ayato started to strip his own clothes off with a smirk. "As I said...I will get all your firsts."

She let out a scream as they began to ravish her.

Yui laid on her side, her hand digging into the earth. She watched as she continued to leave marks with her fingers as they glided through the torn, soggy dirt. It wasn't suppose to happen like this. How did it become so twisted, and...wrong. Yui winced as someone nudged her with their foot. "Are you awake, Bitch-chan?" A voice sounded above her. She let out a chocked sob as she continued to lay there, and trying to detach herself. "Now, no crying. We aren't done playing with you, yet."

She let out a whimper as she was rolled over onto her back, and met the heated gaze of one of the six men that she come to trust over the past year she had stayed with them. The only light was the full moon that filtered though the trees that swayed lightly in the breeze. "My turn." He growled, and he leaned forward and licked the shell of her ear. Yui turned her head and looked off in the distance, trying so desperately not to feel anything. She had already been raped several times since she had run out of the house, when they started to get aggressive with her. They just took turns with her in some bushes off the path when they finally caught her. They ripped her clothes off, defiled her, shattering her innocence.

Yui let out a shriek when Laito entered her forcefully. He clamped her hand over her mouth and grunted as he continued to thrust in her. She shook her head, trying to dislodge his hands, she could hardly breath. Ayato, and Kanato pulled her arms above her head, while groping her, and feeding from her wrists. She could feel the others feeding from her legs, and side.

Laito let out a loud moan as he finished using her, biting her harshly on her neck, drinking deeply, then rolling off her panting. Yui gasped for breath as he removed his hand. She closed her eyes as the others hovered over her, and began to bite and drink from her again, she just wanted this to end, perhaps this was the day that they would actually go to far and kill her. She hoped that was the case. Her vision started to blur and fade to black.

Yui woke feeling cold with the early rays of the sun peaking from the edge of the sky. She was laying on one of the stone benches in the garden. She let out a groan as she rolled to her side. She stood up and staggered forward and walked toward the pool house on the side of the building. She opened the door and opened one of the closet that housed the towels with a grunt. She pulled one of the towels off the shelves and wrapped it around her. She leaned against the wall and took a staggering breath. 'I need to get out of here.'

Yui gathered her strength, and started walking down the long driveway, when she reached the end, she followed the wall until she got to a part that had plenty of vines climbing up the wall. She hissed in pain when she started to pull herself up over the wall. She grunted as she continued to pull herself up until she perched herself on the edge of the wall and looked down. It was a bit of a drop, but she really didn't care. She knew if she stayed there any longer she would be dead either way.

She shifted her position and hung from the edge and let herself go. She landed on the ground and tumbled backwards, landing on her side. She laid there, trying to gather her strength once more. She knew she had some time left, they would be sleeping. It was day time after all.

Yui pulled herself from the ground and staggered forward, walking just inside the tree line following the road. She would occasionally take breaks and rest, and continued forward. She had to get as far away as she could before nightfall. She knew they could follow her scent.

A car past by as Yui laid just inside the treeline on a large rock. It was late afternoon, and the sun had started to set. She let out a low whimper as she tried to sit up. She heard the car slow down once it past her, and then back up until it was parked directly in front of her. She closed her eyes, knowing that her end had come...they had found her. The last thing she had registered before the darkness consumed her were soft footsteps stepping near her where she rested.

Chapter Text

It had been a month since Petra found Yui on that faithful day. Yui had recovered quickly from her attack. Petra had told her that Yui was actually a dhampir, and that is why she survived the attack, a mere human would have been killed. She explained to Yui that someone had modified her genetics, and that person or persons also locked away her dhampir side, for how long she didn't know.

Yui laid on her side on the bathroom floor panting. She had just gotten sick and she didn't feel like she could move an inch. This was a common occurrence for her recently. Petra was growing concerned, so she had set up an appointment to see a doctor. Petra told her she knew of an excellent doctor that could help Yui with her 'odd' genetics, and specialized in vampire health concerns, being a vampire herself.

Petra entered the bathroom and frowned. She knelt next to Yui and brushed her hair out away that was sticking to her face. "Let me help you get ready for your appointment."

Yui weakly nodded and Petra helped her stand and get showered and clothed. Yui had been staying with Petra, and she actually gave her a job at her office doing some filing, and dictation. Petra was a doctor as well, and needed the extra help around her office.

Petra settled Yui next to her in the limo, and wrapped an arm around her, pulling her close, so Yui could lay her head on her shoulder. "Just relax, Yui. I'm sure it's nothing serious. I just want an outside opinion."

Yui sighed and leaned closer to Petra. "I know, I just hope they give me something, I can't hold anything down these days, and I am always sick."

The continued to ride and silence with Petra rubbing her back occasionally. She helped Yui out of the limo, and inside in building where she worked. She guided her to the elevator and pressed the top floor. "He has the whole top floor to himself. He does a lot of research." Petra smiled down at Yui who leaned against the elevator wall.

Petra pulled Yui from the elevator and walked down the long corridor. She found the room she was looking for and opened the door, and ushered Yui inside. "Let's get you changed into a gown so he can examine you after he runs some test. He already told me which vials he wants drawn for blood samples, so I will do that now. Do you need help changing."

"Y-yes, please, if it's not too much trouble."

Petra's eyes softened as she looked at Yui. She noted that Yui looked almost ashen as she gripped the side of the counter. She pulled out the gown and laid it on the table while she helped her undress and into the gown.

She help Yui lay down on the exam table, and pulled out a container with needles and color coded vials. She plucked the vials that she would need and turned to Yui. "This will only take a moment." Petra cleaned Yui's arm, and with practiced ease was able to draw several vials of blood that would be required for her tests. Petra pulled the needle out and leaned over and licked Yui's wound, making her jump. Petra straightened and chuckled. "Sorry, it was habit." She paused and tilted her head to the side. "You do taste good, though."

Yui gave Petra a small smile as Petra ruffled her hair and stepped to the door. "I will be back with the doctor as soon as I can. I will leave the door cracked in case you need anything. I will be right down the hallway." Yui nodded at Petra as she stepped out of the room.

Yui rolled on her side, and curled into a ball. Her mouth was feeling odd for the past two weeks, and she needed to mention it to Petra when she came back, perhaps this new doctor could check, and see if there was something different. It didn't really hurt, it was just that her teeth felt...weird.

"Yui." Petra's soft voice called her. Yui blinked her eyes opened and tried to sit up. Petra held onto her while she got into a comfortable position on the table. "Yui, this is the doctor I was telling you about. His name is Reinhart."

She looked at the man who stood next to the bed smiling down at her. He was in his early twenties with beautiful long blond hair, golden eyes, and wore glasses. "Hello, Yui. I have heard a lot about you."

"H-hello." She fiddled with the edge of the gown, and looked down to avoid the mans piercing gaze.

She felt someone grip her chin, and her gaze fell onto his. "There is no reason to fear me, little one." He lifted his hand and stroked her hair. "I'm glad that Petra found you, I can help you."

Yui swallowed thickly as she gazed at the man. His eyes were intense, and he shifted slightly closer to her as he spoke. "Thank you." she whispered.

"Petra told me when you were found you had been attacked by several vampires, I don't wish to upset you, but it may be important to what I tell you."

Yui frowned slightly. "I...yes, I was."

Petra placed her hands on Yui's shoulders and gave a gentle squeeze. "There six of them from what I observed, she was also sexually assaulted."

Yui began to tremble thinking about it, and closed her eyes. She didn't like to remember that night. She had trusted them. She thought that they cared about her.

Reinhart nodded and pulled Yui close to him. "My sweet little one, everything will be just fine now. I will make sure everything is taking care of."

Yui furrowed her brows and looked up at him. "You...you know what's wrong with me?"

Reinhart smirked down at her. "Why yes. You're pregnant." He leaned closer to her and smiled. "Now, lay back and I will examine you."

Yui was numb, she couldn't believe this was happening. How could she be pregnant. Reinhart helped lower her down and lifted her gown and placed his large hand on her slightly swollen abdomen and sighed. He put some gel on her and began to do the ultrasound. Yui looked at the screen, unable to make sense of anything. Petra leaned forward and spoke in low tones with him as he continued to look.

Petra cleaned off Yui's abdomen and lowered her gown and gave her shoulders a gentle squeeze. "Now I understand why you are so sick."

Reinhart nodded as he scribbled something down in a file. He looked up at Yui and grasped her chin. "May I check on one more thing?" He used his thumb and opened her mouth and tilted her head back. He chuckled as he touched Yui's teeth causing her to jerk her head back. "Did that hurt?"

Yui blinked. "N-no, it just felt weird."

"Your fangs came back." He smirked. "Which is a good thing. You will need to learn to feed."

"Feed?"

Reinhart nodded lifted her into his arms. "Yes, you are pregnant with vampire children."

"Children?"

He let out a low chuckle. "Yes, as far as I could see there are at least eight." Yui let out a small gasp.

"Now, little one, you are a dhampir, and...something new entirely that I will explain at a later date. For now I need you to learn to feed or you and the children will die."Yui swallowed and nodded. She was confused, and everything seemed to be unreal. "I am going to let you feed from me for right now, my blood will certainly help you, and you will feel better." He sat on the exam table and cradled Yui to him. He shifted slightly and guided her head to the crook of his neck. "Now, just follow your instincts, you will know what to do."

Yui leaned closer and her mouth slightly watered as his scent hit her. Her tongue darted out and lightly licked before her fangs pierced his skin. She drank deeply for a few moments, and felt Reinhart cup the back of her head and his other arm pulled her closer. Yui pulled her head back and licked the wound and sighed. She immediately felt better. She could feel her strength return to her.

Reinhart leaned back and kissed her forehead tenderly. "I need you to sleep now, little one."

Yui shook her head as she felt sleepy. She closed her eyes and slumped forward as sleep claimed her.

Petra looked over at Reinhart and smiled. "It looks like she will be fine now."

He stood, adjusted Yui in his arms and caressed her face. "She will remember soon enough. I'm glad that you were able to track her down that morning. She is my greatest creation, and will be the key to my sons futures."

Petra nodded and leaned her hip against the table and sighed. "I don't understand why we had to make her go through that and suffer. I could feel her pain, and fear. I didn't like it. I know this is part of our plan for our kind, but it still hurt, Reinhart. Now that she is pregnant, we need to ensure she is taken care of. When will you tell them?"

Reinhart smirked. "All in due time, my dear. I know they have been looking for her, and things have changed for them since she disappeared. It is the same as the last time she did." He let a chuckled. "I will let them suffer for a little while longer. They need to learn to regret. Now...let's get her home, shall we. I have her room all set."

Petra looked down at Yui and caressed her face. "I hope in time she will remember me. I can't believe I haven't seen her in over two hundred years."

Reinhart laughed lightly. "She will, I assure you, love." He stepped toward the door with Yui in his arms. "Let's get the future queen, and my future grandchildren home. She will need plenty of rest."

"Do you want anything in particular for dinner?" Yui hummed at Petra as she flitted around the large kitchen in the mansion.

"Yui, you know we have someone to do that for us, you know. It's the familiars job to take care of us." Petra smirked at Yui. "Besides we just had breakfast."

Yui turned and chuckled. "I know, it's just I feel like moving. I've been in bed far too much. Reinhart doesn't like me to move around much, and he finally said I could move around now."

Petra came closer and placed a hand on Yui's tiny baby bump. "He's just worried, you and the babies should be careful. You both are important to him."

Yui snorted and placed her hand over Petra's. "I know...I will be. I still have a long ways to go. I'm only three months along."

Petra pulled Yui in to a tight hug. "How about we walk the gardens?"

Yui giggled. "Fine. Let's go." Yui grabbed her cup off the counter before they set off arm and arm.

Petra led Yui to the lavish gardens on the estate and sat in the gazebo. Yui drank from her cup and sighed, and Petra snorted. "Feeling better?"

Yui gave a lopsided smile. "Yes, having blood from the blood bank is alright, it is not like drinking the real thing though." She wrinkled her nose.

Petra settled closer to her. "Yui, you can drink from me any time you need it, you know. I know for a fact that Reinhart wouldn't mind either."

Yui sighed and laid her head in Petra's lap as she laid down on her back. She laid her hands on her belly. "I know, but you both have already done so much for me by living here in this mansion. I don't know where I would be without you."

Petra smiled down at her and ran her fingers through Yui's hair. "I will always be here for you, same with Reinhart. You will understand soon how important you are to both of us."

She tipped her head back and looked at Petra and smiled. "Thank you, Petra." She closed her eyes and sighed. "I don't understand why I'm so...tired."

Petra smirked down at Yui and kissed her forehead. "Sleep well, my Yui, or should I say Evangeline. You will remember soon."

Reinhart stepped out of the shadows and looked down at Yui. He placed his hand on her head and closed his eyes. "It's time for you to remember, Eve. You need to wake up fully." He caressed her face and he removed his hand. "I'm sending for my sons to join us for dinner later tonight, Petra. We will see if she was able to teach them human emotions again, and will be able to save us. I know the last time she made progress, that was until I learned that several people wanted to take Eve as their own. I hope this time my plan is successful, now that the others have been dealt with."

Petra looked down at Yui and sighed. "I know she will, she has had enough time in the human world, and was with them long enough for her to teach them how to feel, and for them to feel something for her. They did before."

Karl nodded and looked back at Yui before stepping away, walking back towards the mansion.

Evangeline ran down the corridor, she was going to be late meeting with Petra. They were going to go into the village and go shopping. Evangeline turned the corner and slammed her petite body into something soft and landed on her back. "I'm...I'm...sorry." She panted as she rolled over to her knees to stand. A hand came into view and she grasped it.

"You shouldn't be running in these halls, Eve, it is quite rude, and you are a lady." Yui looked up and saw Reiji glaring down at her.

"Reiji, I'm sorry. I'm la-."

"Stop with your excuses." He crossed his arms across his chest and raised a brow at her.

Evangeline lowered her head and sighed. "You are correct, Reiji. Forgive my rudeness." She bowed and stepped around him and walked at a measured pace past him.

Reiji grabbed her elbow and whirled her around. He pulled her close and lowered his head to the crook of her neck. "Next time I will be sure to punish you to make sure you learn." He pressed a kiss to her neck making her shiver. He chuckled and released her and walked away without a backwards glance.

Evangeline shook her head and made her way to the gardens where she was meeting Petra. She stepped onto the path and heard a giggle. She turned her head and looked towards the sound. Kanato was sitting on a bench clutching Teddy close to him. He looked up and tilted his head at her. "Eve, do you want to play with Teddy and I tonight?"

She smiled at him and walked closer and sat on the bench next to him. She wrapped her arms around his shoulder and pressed a light kiss to his cheek. "I'm sorry, Kanato. I'm going to the village with my sister. How about when I get back we do something special, just you and I?"

Kanato looked up at her and gave a small smile. "Alright, but you will have to sleep next to me and Teddy today." He giggled.

Evangeline chuckled. "Kanato, you sleep next to me most days, how about I buy you something sweet while I'm out. It will be our secret." She giggled.

Kanato smiled and nodded. "Make sure you buy something for Teddy, too."

"I will, I promise." She kissed his cheek once more before walking towards the edge of the garden where she knew Petra would be waiting for her. She saw her in the distance, standing next to Karlheinz. She approached the pair and smiled as they turned to greet her.

"Eve, where have you been?" Petra placed her hand on her shoulder.

"Sorry, Petra. I lost track of time while Shu was giving me piano lessons." She smiled sheepishly at her.

Karl chuckled and placed his hand on her head and smiled down at her. "It is fine, little one. I will be joining you and Petra tonight in the village. There is some...business I need to attend to today." Karl looked up at Petra and nodded. Petra frowned and nodded.

Karl grasped Evangeline's hand and led her and Petra to the waiting carriage. He handed her in and settled next to her, and Petra sat across from them. The carriage jerked forward and Karl grasped Evangeline around her waist and placed her in his lap. She let out a yelp of surprise. "Uncle." She gasped.

Karl grasped her chin and smiled gently down at her. "Eve, the time has come for you to forget."

"Forget?"

"When the time is right, I will awaken you, little one. I need more time, and you are not safe with me any longer. Don't worry we will put you somewhere until I have had time to deal with...things. Petra and I will watch over you until the time is right. Do you understand."

Evangeline blinked back the tears. She had lived with Karl, and his sons for close to fifty years now, and she loved them all. She knew no other place. She was born there. "I...I think I understand."

Karl kissed her forehead and caressed her head gently. "I need you to drink for me, and also your sister, Petra, this will ensure we know where you are at all times."

Karl shifted her closer and guided her head to his neck. "Now, drink from me Eve." He cooed as he stroked her hair. Evangeline bit gently down, her fangs piercing his skin. She drank for a few moments, pulled back and licked the wound.

Karl sighed and kissed her forehead once again. Petra offered her wrist and Evangeline grasped it, and bit gently down and drank from her sister. Once she was done, Karl settled her against him and placed his large hand over her face and sealed her memories away, as well as her dhampir side. He looked down at the sleeping woman in his arms and smiled gently down at her. "You are my greatest creation Eve, and you will be the key to save us all." He bent his head down and pierced her skin on her neck and drank from her while she lay limp in his arms. Petra grabbed her wrist, and did the same. "Don't worry Petra, I will make sure that she will be safe, and will be reunited with her when the time is right. However first I need to take care of the ones who wish her harm."

Yui gasped and sat up with a start. Petra smiled at her with tears in her eyes. "Did you...do you remember?"

Yui swallowed the lump in her throat and grasped at her sister and held onto her tight. "Petra." She whispered against her neck.

Petra held her closer and let out a chocked sob. "Oh, how I've missed you, Yui, or should I say...Evangeline."

Yui chuckled and pulled back and pressed a kiss to her cheek. "I missed you, too. Yui is fine."

Petra wiped the tears away and smiled gently down at her. "Come, we need to get you out of this heat, and something to eat. It is still hot out here, even though it is night."

Yui nodded, and stepped next to Petra as they walked back to the mansion hand, and hand. She felt slightly disoriented from the rush of memories, and was still trying to sort through them. She tugged on Petra's hand and looked at her with wide eyes. "Is...is Reinhart…is he?"

Petra smiled broadly. "Yes, Yui. He is Karlheinz, the man you consider your uncle."

She furrowed her brows as they started towards the house again. 'Then that means..."

Reiji sighed as he sat in the back of the limo watching his brothers bicker. He and his brothers were ordered to join his father for dinner at his estate not too far from where they lived. All Shu would say was they were all required to go.

"I don't know why we have to go there." Ayato grumbled. "Yours Truly has better things to do with his time."

"Ayato, you know we are all required to go if father requests us to go." Reiji grumbled. "Quit your complaining, we are nearly there."

Ayato continued to grumble under his breath, Kanato giggled and spoke softly to Teddy, teasing Ayato trying to get a rise out of him.

The brothers arrived at the mansion and were shown to the dining room where their father was already waiting with Petra.

"Father." Reiji bowed as he entered the room.

Karl smiled broadly at his sons as they entered the room. "Welcome, and thank you for joining me."

"Like we had a choice." Ayato grumbled.

Subaru slammed his fist on the table and glared at Ayato, tired of his whining.

"Enough." Karl barked. His sons stilled and looked up at their father. Karl took a deep breath and looked at Petra. "Petra, my dear. Please go check on our guest of honor and make sure she is alright." Petra nodded and stood and popped out of the room.

"Are we meeting another new mother?" Shu sighed as he leaned back in his chair and closed his eyes.

Karl chuckled and stapled his hands together and gazed at his sons. "No, however it is someone you all know quite well. When she arrives I do not you to say one word to her. She has no idea you will be here tonight. Give her a moment to recover."

"Who is she?" Laito leaned back in his chair and tossed his fedora in the air with a smirk on his face. "I know a lot of women."

Karl let out a low growl, and soft footsteps were heard coming down the hall. Petra had her arm wrapped around Yui as the entered the dinning room. Yui noticed all eyes were on here. She let out a small gasp of surprise and tried to back away from the eyes that were looking at her, but Petra held onto her tight. "Shh." She cooed. "Everything is alright."

Yui swallowed thickly, and placed her hands on her swollen abdomen protectively as she looked down. The boys followed her motion and Karl smirked at them when he noted shock written on their faces.

"Now, my little one, please come sit next to me." Karl raised his hand and beckoned Yui over to him.

Yui looked up, avoided the gazes of the others and gave a small nod and stepped around the table towards him. She sat graceful in her seat, and let out a soft sigh.

Karl grasped her chin to make her look at him. "Have you fed this afternoon?"

Yui shook her head. "I...I overslept, and I haven't the opportunity yet."

Karl frown and pulled on her hand to stand, she stood before him and he looked up at her and clasped both her hands in his. "Now, you know that your feeding is important for the children. You mustn't miss them. They are growing quickly, and you could get ill again. You have to worry about those eight little lives in there as well as your own." Yui heard the clatter of silverware dropping and closed her eyes.

Karl tugged her gently into his lap. "You look very pale right now, little one. You are to feed from me." He adjusted her in his lap, and Yui leaned closer to Karl and raised her hand and brushed his hair to the side. She lowered her head as he cupped the back of her head and bit. "Do not stop drinking until I tell you to stop." He murmured as he ran his fingers through her long hair.

The brothers watched with confused expressions on their faces. Why is Yui with their father, and why is she feeding from him. Their father had always been brash, and harsh to them, but to see him be tender to Yui was slightly unsettling. They noted she had a different scent now that she was pregnant. They couldn't keep their eyes off her, or her baby bump. They were even more confused when Yui pulled away and they saw fang marks, instead of teeth marks on their father's neck.

Yui closed her eyes and enjoyed the taste that danced on her tongue, and she began to feel better the more she drank. She continued to feed for several minutes. "That's good, little one." Karl cooed to her. Yui pulled back and licked the wound and lowered her head. Karl chuckled and lifted her chin. "Do you feel better now?"

Yui gave him a small smile and placed her hand on his. "Yes, thank you." She slid of his lap, and he stood and helped her lower onto the chair and kissed her on the forehead.

"No more skipping your feedings." He patted her head as he resumed his seat. He grinned as he looked at his sons stunned faces. "I called you all here tonight to talk to you about your upcoming responsibilities." Karl paused and grasped Yui's hand. "As you may have noticed, she is pregnant...and with your children."

Each other them blinked and looked from Yui to their father. Reiji crossed his arms and tilted his head to the side. "How far along is she?"

"Three months." Karl gave him a hard look. "Petra found her on side of the road, bloody, and covered with only a towel." He growled. "She took her into her home, and then brought her to me a month later, and I examined her." He stood and started to pace the room. "She has eight children growing inside her. Eight of your children. She is lucky that Petra found her, she would have eventually died not knowing that she needed a balanced diet of blood several times a day for your children."

Reiji looked at Yui and closed his eyes. He felt oddly regretful for what they did to her that night. When they left her in the garden she had been alive. When they returned to check on her, she was gone. They followed her scent, and it disappeared.

"You almost killed her when I told you NOT to." He roared causing Yui to tremble, and let out a small squeak. Karl's eyes softened and walked over to her and placed his hands on her petite shoulders. "You were to keep her safe." He let out a sight and patted Yui's head. "She is a dhampir. She is part vampire, and human, she also as you know has a heart of a strong vampire. That is the only reason why you didn't kill her and she survived the first month of pregnancy without her feedings."

Karl sat back down in his seat and looked at all of his sons with narrowed eyes. "If you expect to succeed me one day, you will take her back into your home and take care of her and your children. She will be your queen. I expect you to take care of her, and if you don't I will take her as my own."

Yui looked up sharply at Karl and her mouth parted. He raised a brow at her. "You are to go back with them tonight, little one. They will take care of you. It is the way vampires do things. Now that you are carrying their children, whose children I am not sure, but they are expected to take care of you, and you will marry them."

"I...I..." Yui stammered.

Karl leaned closer to her and cupped her cheek. "Eve, you are my greatest creation, and will do as your told." He barley whispered. Yui gulped and nodded. "If you should have any problems, you contact me, or Petra immediately."

Yui closed her eyes and nodded slightly. "I will."

The rest of the dinner was spent in quiet, the only sound was silverware lightly clinking against the china. When the meal was finished Karl nodded at Petra. "Help her get ready to leave. We will meet you in the foyer."

Petra nodded and held Yui's hand as they stepped away from the table. Yui stumbled and Reiji reached out to assist her, and Yui cringed away from him. Reiji frowned and his hands fell limply to his sides. Petra wrapped an arm around her and guided her out of the room.

Karl looked at his sons and narrowed his eyes. "You will have to gain her trust back. It is important that she feeds three times a day from you."

Reiji cleared his throat. "Why didn't tell us she was a dhampir?"

Karl leaned back and tilted his head. "I will tell you that she is over two hundred years old, and someone sealed most of her dhampir traits away." He let out a low chuckle. "She is more than dhampir, you will soon understand, that is all I am willing to share with you for now. Each of you have to prove yourselves to me."

"She is immortal?" Laito raised a brow.

"Yes, she is. She has to be in order to carry your children. No human could survive." Karl raised a brow. "Now, let's go wait for your future queen, shall we?"

Karl led his sons to the foyer and Yui was already there with Petra holding onto her in a tight hug rubbing her back, speaking in low tones. She pulled Yui back and wiped the tears off her cheeks. Petra leaned in and kissed her softly and smiled down at her. "I will see you soon. Call me if you need me. Do you have the cell phone I gave you."

"Y-yes, I do."

"Excellent, I expect to hear from you, and I will send someone by to pick you up on Monday for work."

Yui gave her a soft smile and nodded. "Thank you, Petra." Yui turned and looked at Karl, and smiled. "Thank you, uncle."

Karl wrapped his arms around her and kissed the top of her head. "I will see you Monday. We will give you a check up. Remember you will have to feed three times a day...my sons will be the ones you will feed from. It is better to have fresh vampire blood."

Yui nodded and looked up at him, she got up on her tiptoes and brushed her lips against his cheek. Reiji opened the door and stepped out towards the limo, and the others soon followed. Yui lingered a moment longer and took a deep breath before stepping into the night to join the others.

Yui slid into the limo, and settled next to Ayato who was staring at her. She looked back at him briefly before shifting closer to the door and leaning her head against the window as they drove back to the last place she wanted to be. She closed her eyes and sighed softly, praying that she would have the strength to make it living with them again. She placed her hand on her abdomen in hopes that her children would survive, at least she could protect them slightly better now.

Shu cracked his eye open and gazed at Yui. He took in her delicate features, her hair had got a lot longer since the three months he had last seen her. He watched as she placed her hand protectively on her belly and his lip twitched. He did feel remorse for what they all did to her, and he was pleased that she would be back with them. The house seemed empty without her there. He now realized that she was slowly bringing them together as a family, and without her there they were lost. He know knew that they needed her. He missed her scent, but he began to realize he missed her.

Laito smirked as he watch Yui caress her abdomen. He missed her. He missed her scent, the taste of her skin, the way she was yielding when he fed from her. He thought that she had died, but someone had found her on side of the road. He tried to forget her, the empty spot that she had created with her absence filled with plenty of hunting with Ayato. They both brought home several blood bags a week in order to forget. Nothing could replace Yui no matter how much blood or sex they had. The void was still there.

Ayato could feel the heat from Yui's body near his. He wanted to reach out and touch her. For so long he ached to have her. He raised a brow when he noticed that she was not longer flat chested, she actually had filled out, perhaps it was the pregnancy. Her hair was longer, and it cascaded in light waves down her back. He took a deep breath and savored the scent that was Yui, but something more. He felt sadness, something he was not used to when he discovered she was missing. Like Laito, he assumed that she had died due to her injuries. No matter how much blood he took from anyone, whether it was a vampire, or human, it never filled the void. He felt...affection for her that he never realized how deep it was until he saw her enter tonight.

Kanato felt anger when Yui disappeared, he wanted her with him always. She was his favorite bride. He enjoyed her taste. She tasted sweet, and he loved sweet things. She would often bake sweet things for him each week without him asking, and he actually enjoyed that about her. He wasn't used to someone caring for him, or even doing anything for him. He tried to forget her. He spent more time with Teddy, and he made some of his past brides into familiars so he could torment them for not being Yui. He and Teddy were pleased to have her back where she belonged, and the best part was that she would be theirs forever.

Subaru swallowed the lump in his throat as he looked at Yui. He was not entirely sure how he would even talk to her. What they did to her was dreadful. They all decided that they all wanted her, and couldn't decided who would win her, so in a heated argument they all had her...together. When she turned up gone the next day, he had hoped that she had died, so she would not have to live that nightmare. On some nights, while sitting near the garden, he could still hear her crying pleas for them to stop. He took a deep breath and closed his eyes. He could taste Yui's scent on his tongue, and he savored the taste, her scent was even better. He was glad that she was back, and was pleased she was with child. He promised he would be a better father than he ever was.

Reiji watched Yui as she shifted in her seat, trying to press herself against the door, and away for Ayato. He couldn't really blame her. They tortured her, all selfish because they all wanted to have her. When Yui had been gone after a week he realized he missed her clumsiness, the look on her face when she was confused about something. His tea never tasted the same without her there. He looked down and watched with fascination the way her hand drifted against her swollen abdomen. He felt something odd tug in his chest thinking of Yui with his child, perhaps this is what pride feels like. He noted she looked even more delicate as the moonlight streamed through the window. Her blond hair almost looking white. How was it now that she was here with him that she didn't seem so plain as he once thought. Of course her taste was the finest her had ever had, but now there was more to her. When she fed from his father, he felt jealousy flare through him. He wanted it to be him to hold her while she fed from him. He knew that she was terrified of all of them, and he had to make things right with her. He needed to ensure that his children didn't suffer because of her stubbornness. At least now he had that chance, they had her back, and even better she had to marry them. She would be tied to them for eternity.

Chapter Text

The car pulled up to the estate and Yui opened the door and bolted out. The brothers sat there stunned for a brief moment before they climbed out. They didn't realize how fast she could be now. Yui entered her bedroom and leaned against the door and let out a sigh of relief. She really didn't feel like talking to the brothers all at once, perhaps one at a time. She was conflicted on how she felt. She remembered everything from her past, and the deep affection she had for all of them. What they did to her was something she was still trying to come to terms with. Did they even remember her? It appears they didn't and Karl didn't mention anything about that to them. She wouldn't mention it either.

Yui entered her bathroom and turned on the tub and filled it with some scented oil to try to relax. While the tub filled she went to her wardrobe and pulled out a sleep shorts, and a t-shirt. She frowned as she looked at them. 'I will have to buy some new clothes soon.'. She entered the bathroom once again and began to strip her clothes and pull up her hair. It was down to her mid back now, and she enjoyed it long, there was more she could do with it.

She turned off the tub and eased herself into the warm water and groaned. She leaned her head back and closed her eyes and began to think about the men in her life. Her heart ached for the way things used to be before that dreadful night. They had come together as a family...slightly dysfunctional family, but still, things were going well. She still didn't understand why they acted that way towards her that night.

There was a knock at her bathroom door and Yui shifted forward, and grabbed her towel. "Y-yes?"

"I was just ensuring you were feeling well." She heard Reiji's voice drift to her.

"I-I'm fine, thank you, Reiji." She swallowed her fear and closed her eyes, if he really wanted to hurt her, he could just have popped into the bathroom instead of knocking on the door.

"Yui." There was a pause. "Perhaps you could find the time to speak with me...in private at some point."

Yui chewed her bottom lip for a moment and thought about his requests. "That would be fine, Reiji."

"I will leave you to enjoy your bath then."

Yui paused for a moment before she resumed her bath. She washed herself quickly before flipping the drain to drain the tub. She stepped out and briskly dried herself and donned on her clothes. She looked in the mirror and frowned. She looked slightly pale. She shook her head and finished her bathroom routine, and stepped into her bedroom.

She wasn't tired yet, and really didn't feel like staying in her room at this point. She decided she would go speak to Reiji now, he was awake, and she preferred to get this over with. She knew that Reiji didn't like people to be in his study, or chambers in inappropriate attire, but she was going anyways. He would just have to suck it up. She was not wanting to go through a whole wardrobe change just to hear what he had to say.

Yui stepped into the hallway and made her way down the steps to the bottom floor where Reiji's study was. She stepped down in the foyer and took the long corridor that lead to his study, as well as the library, and music room. She ran her hand against the wall as she walked and paused tilting her head to the side and looked into the music room. She smiled softly thinking about the times that Shu had given her piano lessons eons ago. Did she still remember how to play? She padded quietly to the piano and ran her delicate fingers down the keys.

She settled herself on the bench, and rested her fingers on the keys. She took a deep breath and began to play. Her favorite piece Claire de lune, by Debussy. She started playing and closed her eyes, letting the music relax her. She remembered how the sound of the piano playing always seemed to make her happy, and she could go to another place depending on her mood. When she played she was free from everything that bogged her down in life. She used to make up her own melodies, and try to put them into music.

She let out a soft sigh and opened her eyes and Shu was leaning against the piano staring at her. She let out a squeak, and leaned back, but Shu caught her up in his arms. He held her close to him, and cradled her against him. She began to tremble as she looked at him. He closed his eyes briefly and opened them with a softened expression. Yui held her breath as Shu continued to look at her. He set her on her feet and let her go, his hands grazing her arms as he let go.

He took a step back and looked down at her. "Where did you learn to play the piano?"

Yui looked away from him and closed her eyes. "Someone...it was someone who was important to me a long time ago." She whispered.

"I see." Shu sat on the bench in front of her and grasped her hand causing her eyes to snap open and look at him. "I just wanted you to know...I'm glad that you are here." He raised her hand to his lips and kissed it.

Yui tugged her hand back gently and offered him a small smile. She remembered all the time they spent together playing the piano, sitting and listening to classical pieces together. She remembered it all, that was hundreds of years ago. She swallowed the lump in her throat and nodded. "I need to go see Reiji, he wanted to speak to me."

Shu chuckled and gave her a small smirk. "Don't keep him waiting then."

Yui nodded and stepped away from him and made her way out of the room. Shu sighed and watched her go. He had heard the music, and knew from the style that it was not Laito. He was surprised to see Yui sitting here playing. It was one of his favorite pieces. He hoped with time that he could spend some time with Yui, and make things better between them. He didn't like the tension, and to see her fear when looking at him.

Yui knocked softly on Reiji's door and folded her hands in front of her, and waiting for him to open the door. She was not entirely sure he was even in his office. It was still early, and he should not be in bed yet. The door opened after a few moments and Reiji looked down at her with an unreadable expression. He stepped aside and motioned her to come inside. "Please, have a seat."

Yui stepped further into the study and sat on one of the wing back chairs that were nestled into the corner of the room. Reiji stepped over to his desk and poured two cups of tea, and placed one in front of Yui. "This is chamomile tea, it will help you sleep." He murmured as he sat gracefully in the chair across from her.

Yui looked at the cup and gently took it, and raised the cup to her lips with a trembling hand. Reiji took a long sip on his tea and set the cup down carefully on the table between them. "There is nothing 'extra' in the tea, it's perfectly safe."

Yui took a sip, and swallowed, setting her tea cup down gently on her saucer. "Thank you, Reiji. It tastes delicious."

Reiji's lip twitched. "Yes, I believe that it does."

Yui folded her hands in her lap and sat straight in her chair waiting to speak. She bowed her head and waiting some more. "I wanted to check in with you to see how you were feeling. I know you will need to have three feedings a day, and I will speak with my brothers to get a schedule to help you with that."

Yui raised her eyes to meet his red ones. "I...I was thinking of asking Petra for some blood from the blood bank."

Reiji thinned his lips and took a deep breath. He had expected this from her, she was stubborn to a fault. The rational side of him knew she was still frightened of them, but the other side was beyond pissed that she wouldn't drink from them. "Yui." He cleared his throat. "Rest assured you are perfectly safe here now, you are the mother of our children, and we want to make sure you have everything you will need. In vampire culture it is custom for the mother to drink from her mate. It is better for you, and for our children. Human blood will not give you or them the nutrition that they need right now."

"I felt safe before." She whispered, and clenched her fists, and looked away.

Reiji sighed and shifted slightly closer. "I do regret what happened, and perhaps someday I will offer an explanation for our actions on that night. However, right now I want to make sure you do not suffer anymore, and are taken care of."

Yui bit her bottom lip and thought about it. She did feel a lot better when she drank from Petra, or Karl. When she had human blood, she seemed to need more of it, and more frequently. "I will try. I will only do this because I want to protect my children."

"Our children." He raised a brow at her. "You are looking slightly pale right now, perhaps you would indulge me and feed right now."

Yui's eyes widened for a brief moment and took a deep breath. "I think I will be okay until the morning, but thank you, Reiji. I have just been...stressed. I think I will retire for the night." Yui stood and bowed to Reiji before making her way to the door. She paused before she turned the knob. "Thank you, Reiji." She said softly as she stepped out into the hall, and closed the door softly behind her.

Reiji growled in frustration when Yui left. Her scent lingered in the air and he took a deep breath and closed his eyes, letting her scent assault his scenes. She smelled ever better now. Speaking with Yui went slightly better than he thought. She was still reserved of course, but at least she agreed to the feedings. He would have to speak with his brothers about a schedule to make sure someone was always available to help her with that. He knew that each of them would always been available for her, and would probably want to be the only one she feed from, however that was not possible right now. She needed more feedings because she had eight children growing inside of her.

Yui sighed as she made her way through the house. She was thirsty, however she wasn't quite ready to feed from them as of yet. She wanted to trust them. The conflicting emotions rolled through her. She rubbed her baby bump tenderly. "Everything will be alright." She whispered.

"Oi, Yui." Ayato appeared in front of her, making her jump back slightly.

"W-what do you want, Ayato?"

Ayato stepped closer to her and looked down at her baby bump, and then back at her. "I wanted to see how you were doing." He grumbled looking away.

Why was he acting so weird. Each of the brothers were being...gentle with her. She shook her head and sighed. "I'm fine, Ayato. Thank you for your concern."

She stepped around him, and he grabbed her hand gently. "Just...just get some rest."

Yui looked at him with wide eyes and then nodded. She tugged her hand away and continued forward. She still didn't want to go to bed, so she went into the library, her favorite place to go when she needed some quiet time. Her fingers traced the spines of the books, and she finally found one that she hadn't read in years, A Midsummer Night's Dream by: William Shakespeare. She remembered reading this book at the palace, it was one of her favorite stories.

She plucked the book from the shelf and settled in the window seat that had cushions that overlooked the gardens. She shivered thinking about what happened, and tried to push those feelings aside. She opened the book and began to read out loud. She hoped that her children were able to hear her voice, and found it soothing thinking that she wasn't alone anymore.

Kanato tilted his head to the side as he heard Yui reading. He hadn't heard this story in years. He appeared behind her as she continued to read softly while caressing her baby bump. Her voice was soft and had a melodic quality to it. He stepped closer and settled next to her, leaning his head on her shoulder, nuzzling her neck.

Yui jumped slightly and stilled. "K-kanato." She yelped.

"I heard you reading. I like this story." He grinned widely. "Continue to read."

Yui swallowed and raised the book with a shaking hand and continued to try to read. Kanato shifted closer to her as she continued to read, and held Teddy in his other arm, so he could nestle closer to her. He could feel her body heat, and enjoyed the feeling of her body being pressed closer to his. He noticed how her voice would falter slightly whenever her shifted closer to her. He let out a low chuckle as she continued to try to read.

He shifted his position and laid his hand on her belly, making her stiffen. He looked at her face, and she closed her eyes and started to tremble. Kanato giggled lightly. "Are there really eight babies in there?" He asked.

"Y-yes there are." Yui whispered.

Kanato nodded and sighed. "Keep reading." He whispered against her neck. "I'm not going to bite you...today."

Yui gulped, but continued to read. After sitting with Kanato for over an hour her eyes seemed to grow heavy. Kanato watched as she began to close her eyes, the book slipping from her hand, and landing next to her as she slumbered. Kanato watched her as she slept, his hand never leaving her belly.

Kanato adjusted her and pulled her closer to him and held her tightly. "I'm glad you are here, Yui." He whispered. "You will never leave me again...or I will kill you and keep you with me for an eternity." He kissed her temple and sighed.

Laito appeared and looked down at the pair and smirked. He sat by Yui's legs and looked over at Kanato and raised a brow. "How is Bitch-chan?"

Kanato growled lightly. "She is fine, she was reading to Teddy and I."

Laito picked up the book and looked at it. "I didn't know Bitch-chan liked this kind of book." He giggled. He placed it back down and he settled his hand on her baby bump. "It's hard to believe our little Bitch-chan has eight of our babies in there."

Yui shifted in her sleep, and snuggled closer to Kanato and whimpered in her sleep. He looked down at her and frowned. "I'm going to put her to bed. She needs her rest." He stood, and lifted Yui in his arms and vanished. Laito smirked and vanished as well, following him to Yui's room.

Kanato pulled back the covers and laid Yui gently down on the bed. He brushed her hair to the side and kissed her lips lightly.

Laito raised his brow at his brother, and settled next to Yui, gazing down at her. "Sleep well, Bitch-chan." He leaned closer and took a deep breath and sighed. "She smells so much better now." He kissed her lips and stood up. "We should check on her when we wake, she feels slightly warmer than usual."

Kanato looked down at Yui and nodded. "Teddy, and I will check on her when we wake. It's almost dawn now, and we are going to bed." He vanished without another word.

Laito looked at Yui one last time and shook his head. She was making him feel emotions he wasn't entirely used to. He almost felt...protective of her. He kissed her baby bump and sighed. "Sleep well, my little ones." He pulled the covers up, and tucked her in, and planted a quick kiss to her forehead. "We will talk soon."

He vanished making his way to his room, to try to settle these feelings about Yui. He didn't think they felt bad, just...different. Did he actually love her? He found he didn't really feel like torturing her any more...interesting.

Chapter Text

Reiji stepped quietly into Yui's room when she didn't answer the door. He knew she was in here. He could hear her heartbeat, it sounded too fast, and her breathing was rapid. He stepped closer to the bed and sat on the edge and looked at her. She was fidgeting in her sleep, and was sweating heavily. He reached out his hand and brushed some of her hair away from her face and noted she was burning up.

He shifted closer and placed his hand on her head and frowned. "Yui." He whispered while gently shaking her. "Yui, you need to wake up." She let out a low whimper as she laid there. He looked up and saw Shu sit on the other side of the bed and looked down at her.

Shu tilted his head to the side and drifted his hand down to her face, lightly caressing it. "She is burning up, when was her last feeding."

Reiji paused and began to count the hours. He hadn't spoke to the brothers as of yet about their feeding schedule, and Yui had been in her room all day. He growled and looked at her. "It has been close to twenty hours."

Shu looked up sharply at Reiji and hissed. "We need to feed her." He picked her up into his arms and cradled her against him and bit his own wrist, drinking a mouthful. He pressed his lips to hers and opened her mouth with his thumb. Yui swallowed and shivered.

"Shu, bring her to my study, we will need to keep an eye on her until she wakes." Reiji stood and vanished.

Shu gathered Yui more securely to him and vanished with her in his arms, going to Reiji's study. Shu brought her to the couch and settled her on his lap, and began to feed her again while Reiji stood at his desk and began to mix some contents in a small bottle.

Once he was satisfied, he knelt in front of Yui who was cradled in his brother's arms. "Let me give her this."

Shu grabbed his wrist as Reiji lifted to bottle to his own lips. "What is that?" He nodded to the bottle.

"It is something to help with the fever, and pain. It is perfectly safe for her, and the children. It will help her rest more soundly." Shu paused for a moment and nodded, releasing him.

Reiji emptied the contents into his mouth, and leaned closer to Yui, pressing his lips to hers. He slipped his tongue in her mouth, to make sure she opened wide enough to swallow everything he offered. She gave a light cough after swallowing. Reiji nodded and sat back on his heels. "Continue feeding her." Shu readjusted Yui and continued to bite his wrists, and arms and feed Yui.

Eventually she stopped shivering, and her breathing evened out. She let out a small sigh and shifted closer to Shu, while still sleeping. He let out a sigh of relief. He sifted his position on the couch, laying down. He laid Yui on her back, so it was against his chest. He pulled her up against his body, getting in a comfortable position. He looked up at Reiji and smirked. "My lack of temperature will keep her cool."

Reiji raised a brow and looked down at her. He cupped her check and noted her temperature was not as hot. He paused for a moment before he laid a hand on her swollen abdomen and laid it there gently. He didn't feel any movement, but it was far too early for that, but it fascinated him, he had wanted to do this since the day her saw her carrying his child...well their children. He hoped at least one of them was his.

Shu took out his earbud and gently placed it in Yui's ear. His favorite classical pieces playing. He thought it may relax her a bit to have some soothing music. He wanted to ensure she was happy, and comfortable. His hands drifted down and placed his hand on her abdomen and sighed. He closed his eyes and leaned his head closer to hers, enjoying her scent. He felt strange. He wanted to protect her. He wanted her to look at him with the trusting eyes once again.

"We will have to be more persistent with her." Reiji said. "She is so stubborn, she will end up hurting herself or the children."

Shu opened his eyes and looked at Reiji. "We were persistent with her before, and this is the result. We should have never done that to her."

Reiji pursed his lips. "I agree, however what is done is done. All we can do now is ensure her happiness, and health. She is our bride after all, and it is up to us to prove to her now that she belongs here with us, or father will take her."

"Do you think she will leave again?"

"We will have to ensure that she doesn't."

The door to the study banged open and Ayato stood there with a hard look on his face. He stalked over to where Yui was and glared at Reiji. "What did you do to her?" He hissed. Laito, Kanato, and Subaru stepped inside and gathered around, and glared down at Reiji.

"We went to check on Bitch-chan and she wasn't there. We could only smell yours and Shu's scent mixed with hers...and also Shu's blood."

Reiji let out a low growl and stood. "She has a fever from her lack of feeding. Shu and I brought her here to feed her, to get her fever down. Now...will you all keep your voices down and let her rest."

Shu closed his eyes and pulled Yui closer to him. "Yes, you are far too noisy for my liking."

Ayato looked at Yui and frowned. "Is she...are the babies alright?"

Reiji raised a brow. "They are all well as far as I can tell. Her temperature is returning to normal."

Kanato stepped closer to Yui and leaned closer to her. "She smells different now that she is pregnant. I want a taste."

Ayato yanked him back and hissed. "No. You will not touch what is Yours Truly. She is off limits."

"Now brother, you know she is all of ours. We each get to enjoy Bitch-chan." Laito purred in a seductive tone.

Subaru slammed his fist on the wall and growled. "Enough." He barked. "This is exactly what happened the last time we attacked her. Our job now is to protect her, not hurt her again, if we do...she will leave us."

Each of the brothers looked down at her and frowned. They didn't want her to leave. They all needed her, and felt...affection for her.

Reiji cleared his throat and adjusted his glasses before returning his gaze to them. "We all need to work together to help her. She will need three feedings a day, I suggest a schedule to ensure everyone gets equal time with Yui."

The others grumbled. Ayato slumped into a chair and crossed his arms. "Fine. I only agree to this because she needs it. Just don't...don't touch her."

Reiji raised a brow and chuckled. "Ayato...again, she is all of ours. You simply can't dictate what we can and can't do with our bride. None of us here are going to harm her like that again. You know this."

"Whatever...I will take the next feeding." He grumbled. He hated the thought of Yui being touched by anyone but him, however he knew what Reiji said was true. She was all of theirs. She was the first bride to survive, and now she was pregnant with their children.

"She will need another feeding soon, however Shu will take care of that when she wakes, he hasn't finished with his turn yet. We will stay with her to ensure that she is comfortable until she wakes. She will need to have vampire blood every eight hours. I will submit a schedule to you soon, and as you requested Ayato, I will place you first."

With a grunt, the others settled around the room to watch over their bride. They still didn't trust each other, it was going to be something they had to work on together to make sure Yui was protected and happy.

Evangeline hummed softly to herself as she laid in the tall grass near the gardens. She had come here to enjoy the stars. She heard steps coming closer to her and she sat up and looked over her shoulder to see who was coming to join her.

"Ayato. I thought you were out hunting."

"Tch. I already did." He sat next to her, and picked up a blade of grass and tore it in his fingers as he looked up at the sky. "Laito, and I just got back a short time ago, and I heard you humming, so I came to see you."

Evangeline settled closer to him and leaned her head on his shoulder. "I'm glad you're back." She smiled. "It is always better when you have company, no?"

Ayato looked down at her and chuckled. "I suppose." He paused and looked back up again. "When will you go on your next hunt?"

Evangeline wrinkled her nose. "I just fed not too long ago. I don't need blood as often as you do."

He nudged her shoulder and smirked. "I could go with you next time, and show you how's it done."

She giggled and rolled her eyes. "No thank you. I think I can manage just fine...besides I can pass for a human, and I'm not restricted to night hunting. I usually find someone when Petra sends me on an errand to the village during the day."

"I s'ppose." He grumbled.

"Aw, don't be so down. Petra can't go out during the day either. I'm the only one who can being a halfer." She giggled.

"You know I hate it when you call yourself that." He growled.

She let a low sigh and laid back down in the grass. "I know. I just wish I had met my family. Petra said that father is a very powerful demon, and mother...well my mother was human. Petra's mother died years before." She closed her eyes. "My mother died giving birth to me, which is something I hate. She was lucky to survive being pregnant with me at all."

Ayato laid next to her and grabbed her hand. "That was not your fault you know. I remember that day well...the day you were born. She was human, and weak. They never survive giving birth, and never survive without someone who knows they need vampire blood."

Evangeline held his hand tighter. "Still." She rolled to her side and laid her head on his shoulder. "I'm just glad you and your brothers have taken care of me, and accept me even though I am half human."

Ayato snorted and wrapped an arm around her. "At first we had no choice. Father demanded us to look out for you. We resented you at first but...eventually you grew on us."

"I know life is not easy here, Ayato. I have seen the pain each of you endure from uncle, but just remember I am always here for you. For all of you. I try to make things better for you."

"I know. I know you are." He sighed. "And you do."

Evangeline snuggled closer and started to hum softly as they gazed up at the stars together, content just to be side by side, enjoying the night.

The others tilted their head when Yui started to hum a familiar melody. It was something that they had not heard in close to two hundred years. It was something that someone they each loved used to hum to herself, a melody she had made up. Evangeline. They had all tried to forget her since the day she didn't come back with her sister, and father that one faithful night. They were told that she was killed. When she died they each spiraled down and became angry, and their father became even more brutal to them. Eventually they became cold, and hateful towards everyone, and everything.

Reiji's lips parted as he looked at Yui. He swallowed the lump in his throat thinking about their lost Evangeline. He took in her features and narrowed his eyes. She looked a lot like Evangeline, very much so. He stood from his chair and strode over to his multiple bookshelves and plucked an old album from the shelf. He placed it gently on his desk, and began to thumb through the pages, stealing glances as Yui every so often, comparing her features to Evangeline's. He knew there was one way to ensure that she was indeed their lost Evangeline, and that was to see if she had that mole on the back of her neck, just inside the hairline. He went beside Yui and brushed her hair to the side and turned her head, and with a shaking hand, threaded his hands through her silky locks to look. He let his hands fall when he found it. He looked at the others, who stared at Yui with wide eyes.

"How is that even possible." Ayato growled. "She was killed. We all know that." He hissed. "She can't be her."

Shu looked down at Yui and at his brothers. "Who told you she died? It was him wasn't it. You know he loves to toy with us."

Reiji let out a low growl. "It is another one of his games then. Why would he take her away all those years. Did she know?" He hissed.

"No. I know she didn't." Ayato said. "She had no idea she was a dhampir, and she was terrified when she first came here. There is no way she remembered who she was."

Reiji chewed his lip, and then nodded. "Perhaps. I always thought she looked a lot like Eve, that is why I tortured her so...for not being her." Reiji looked over a Kanato and smirked. "This is why she smells different to us, Kanato. If you really take in her scent...she smells just like Eve now that she has her dhampir side triggered."

Laito giggled and smirked. "It explains why Petra is back all of a sudden. She left shortly after Eve died, if you remember." He tilted his head to the side for a moment. "Didn't Yui call father uncle tonight, just like Eve used to?"

"That she did. We shouldn't say anything to Yui about this...yet. We will just concentrate on taking care of her, and our children. We will soon find out if she is indeed our Eve. I don't like the idea of loosing her a second time. This could just be another trick by father."

They all watched Yui for hours as she slumbered, nestled in Shu's protective hold. Yui let out a soft groan and opened her eyes, blinking. She looked around the room, and noted that the brothers were all settled around her. She looked up and Shu was gazing at her with a soft smile tracing his lips. "What happened?" She whispered trying to untangle herself from Shu. He tightened his hold on her, keeping her from moving.

Reiji knelt in front of her, and narrowed his eyes. "You got a fever, you went without your feeding for twenty hours." He sighed and cupped her face. "Yui, I know this has to be difficult for you, however you need to stop being stubborn and let us take care of you, and our children, we will not hurt you. You have my word."

Yui furrowed her brows and looked around the room. "I...I am trying, Reiji. It is just difficult. I will make sure I don't skip anymore feedings." She sighed and placed her hand tenderly against her baby bump.

Reiji nodded and stop, gazing down at her. "See that you don't."

Shu adjusted her in his arms and placed her across his lap and cradled her against him. "You still need more of a feeding, Yui. You still look pale, and you are still slightly warm." He brushed her hair to the side while looking at her.

Yui frowned. "Here?" She looked around the room.

Shu grinned as he stood with her in his arms. "I will bring you some place that is more private." He vanished and went to his chambers. Yui looked around the room as he strode forward and pulled her onto the large bed with him. "Now, no one comes in here. We will not be disturbed."

Yui trembled slightly as Shu leaned his body against hers while cupping her face. "S-shu?"

He closed his eyes and leaned his forehead against hers. "Yui." He opened his eyes and gazed at her. "I will not harm you. I want to protect you. Please...try and trust us. I know that trust was shattered when we...when we attacked you, for that I am sorry." He sighed.

Yui swallowed the lump in her throat, and then nodded slightly. "Okay."

He gave her a brilliant smile and sighed. "Now...let's get you fed." He sat up and leaned against the headboard of his bed and smirked. He tilted his head and crocked his finger at her.

Yui shifted closer to him and got on her knees and leaned forward. He let out a chuckle and grasped her hips and settled him on his lap, so she was straddling him. Yui let out a small gasp and placed her hands on his broad shoulders. "I believe it would be easier this way for you." He murmured.

Yui pursed her lips and leaned forward and moved the collar of his shirt slightly as she nuzzled his neck trying to find the right place. She gently bit his neck and began drinking. He wrapped his arms around her and pulled her flush against him and let out a long sigh. 'It's better than I thought it ever would be.' He never let anyone drink his blood before, he was a prince after all. It was far to intimate for him, and he didn't want that connection with anyone...except for Yui.

He let out a low groan and shifted his hips slightly, trying not to buck up into Yui. He started getting an erection as soon as her petal lips pressed against his neck. Yui continued to drink deeply as Shu continued to squirm. He began to run his fingers through her hair in a comfort manner and let out a sigh when she stopped and licked his wound lightly.

She pulled back and gazed at him as he still held her close. "D-did I hurt you?"

Shu smirked as he looked at her. "Not even close. I quite enjoyed it, actually."

Yui bit her lip, and nodded. "I'm glad I didn't."

Shu leaned closer and brushed his lips against hers lightly and pulled back and smiled at her. "I hope you know how sorry I am, that I caused you pain, Yui."

Yui bowed her head and shuddered. He gently lifted her chin to meet his gaze and smiled softly. "I would like to talk to you about that when you are ready."

"We can talk now...if you want to." She sighed.

"That night...when I saw Reiji on you, when you ran." He paused. "It had been coming to a head for some time."

"What do you mean?"

He lightly chuckled. "You are the first bride to survive the awakening, and after you stabbed yourself, and came back...we all danced lightly around you after, giving you time to settle until the next part."

Yui tilted her head to the side, and furrowed her brows. "Next part?"

"Yes, we all took your blood multiple times, the next part was to claim you are our bride...our mate. We couldn't decide who won, actually. We would have claimed you, and complete the awakening by turning you into a vampire, and became your mate for eternity. The problem was...we all wanted you." Yui's breath hitched in her throat. "We all wanted for you to be ours, and that night, I believe we just all got frustrated, and decided to all claim you. It was wrong, and I am sorry. Now you...now you are bound to all of us, because you are carrying our children." His hand moved and placed it over her abdomen.

"So, does that mean your father is going to force me to marry all of you?"

"He is a powerful man, Yui. He is the King. If he said you have to marry us, then yes...you do. You are part of our world now."

"So my choices were taken away." She grumbled.

Shu shifted under her and clasped her hips. "Who is it, Yui. Who is it that you are drawn to? I am curious, and I will not get mad with you for being honest with me. It doesn't matter now, for you are all of ours."

Yui pursed her lips as she gazed at Shu. "I am not drawn to anyone in particular. I was enjoying spending time with each of you, and getting to know all of you before...before all this happened. You each bring something different to me."

Shu nodded and squeezed her hips. "I can see that." He looked at her for a moment. "Would it be okay if I kissed you?"

Yui's lips parted as she looked at Shu. She was trying to come to terms with being all of their brides, however she needed to work on their trust. Did she trust Shu? "J-just kiss, right?"

Shu snorted lightly. "I will not ask for more than you are willing to give me right now. I want to protect you, Yui, and our children." He gave her a small smile. "This is a way to gain your trust back, to show you that we will not force ourselves on you."

Yui swallowed hard before she nodded. Shu smirked as he leaned forward slowly and pressed his lips to hers lightly. He had never kissed her before. He always just fed from her, and that was it...until that night. Even then he didn't kiss her. He nipped her bottom lip, and Yui parted her lips slightly to lick her lip, and he brushed his tongue against hers slowly. He raised his hand and held the back of her head, to deepen the kiss. He found it endearing how clumsy she was with kissing, however he would get great joy showing her exactly how to do that, among many other things. However, he was getting ahead of himself right now. Now, well now he was just enjoying the slow seductive dance he was doing with this kiss.

Yui let out a low moan in his mouth and jerked her head back and slapped her hand over her mouth, her eyes wide. Shu grabbed her hand and chuckled. "Yui, it's okay." He squeezed her hip to encourage her as he leaned forward and claimed her lips once again. She grew bolder in her kiss, and Shu sighed against her lips as his tongue delved deeper in her mouth. His tongue lightly stroked her fangs and she let out a soft moan and squirmed in his lap. He chuckled and slowed the kiss. He pressed a few more soft kisses to her lips, before pulling back and cupping her face. "Sorry...I couldn't help myself. I know fangs are extremely sensitive."

Yui blushed and nodded. "I'm not entirely used to them yet."

Shu swallowed as he looked at Yui. "Do you think...do you think I could feed from you, only for a moment?" Shu sighed. "It will make our bond that much tighter, it has been three months since I've had your blood...I would feel better about it."

Yui closed her eyes and thought about it. Shu has been gentle with her so far, and he did explain some things to her about why it happened. He appeared to be honest with her right now. Long ago she had trusted Shu, and then again, he never broke that trust. She decided she needed to keep moving forward in order to make things better. "Y-yes...just please don't hurt me."

Shu frowned. He always made his bites extremely painful for Yui in the past. He didn't have to make them painful, it was just what he did with her. He brushed her hair to the side and kissed her neck, giving butterfly kisses before he suckled her neck lightly. He bit very gently on her neck, and her taste exploded in his mouth. He let out a loud groan as he pulled her closer. The taste was so much better. He thought her taste was of the highest quality before, but this put it to shame.

Yui leaned forward and bit Shu once again and fed from him, as he fed from her. She could feel that connection being formed with him. She could tell he felt bliss at this moment, and was content. Shu cleaned her wound and kissed her neck once again. Yui pulled back and looked at him, and gave him a soft smile. "Thank you, Shu." She whispered.

He leaned his forehead against hers and sighed. He chuckled when her heard Yui's stomach growl. "I suppose we should fine you some human food now." Shu shifted off the bed, and brought her with him and pulled her up bridal style as he popped into the kitchen. He settled her down in one of the chairs in the vast kitchen and started opening cabinets, looking for something for her to eat.

Yui giggle lightly and Shu looked over at her with a raised brow. "Do you even know how to cook?" She asked.

He dropped his hands and smirked at her as he leaned his hip against the counter. "Not very well."

She shook her head and smirked at him. "I will take care of it. Thank you for everything, Shu. I do feel better now that you explained it. I will try to...forgive everyone."

Shu pulled her into his arms and kissed her slowly. He moved his head and nuzzled her neck. "That's all we ask. You are our mate, and it is painful for us when you are in pain, sick or angry."

Yui giggled again. "Good to know." She shifted back and looked up at him. "Let me make dinner for everyone, I will even make dessert for Kanato."

Shu raised an eyebrow at her. "Alright." He said slowly. "However, I will stay in here to ensure you do not hurt yourself."

Yui rolled her eyes at him, glad that things seemed somewhat normal between her and Shu again. Now for the others.

Chapter Text

Yui entered the office and let out a soft sigh as she settled behind her desk. Petra appeared and wrapped an arm around her and gave her a gentle squeeze causing Yui to gasp lightly.

"Sorry, love." Petra giggled. "How was your weekend? Were they alright to you?"

Yui smiled softly. "Actually they were all very gentle with me. Shu, and I had a long talk. I suspect the others will speak to me about certain...events later."

Petra blew air out of her cheeks and nodded. "Good. I would hate to see what uncle will do to them if they didn't behave themselves."

Yui giggled as she picked up her cup, and took a long sip. "I would, too. However, they took care of me, honestly."

Petra leaned against the desk and looked down at her sister. "We have a full schedule tonight. Do you want to help me?"

Yui's eyes brightened. "W-would you let me?"

Petra gave a delicate snort. "Of course. I thought it would do you some good to see what I do, and you could pick up on some things. It may come in handy when you have the babies. Vampires heal quickly, but we do have some health issues."

Yui clasped her hands and grinned. "Wonderful. Thank you, Petra."

Petra leaned forward and cupped her check. "Anything for you, Eve." She chuckled and pulled back. "I mean, Yui."

The first part of the night as extremely busy, and Yui was out straight, and she absolutely loved it. She assisted Petra when she met with various patients. Some had simple things wrong with them, that were an easy fix, and others just came in for lab work. Some even brought in their human lovers to be checked out.

Yui hummed softly to herself as she made her way up to the lab. Petra asked her to deliver several vials of blood for testing. She entered the elevator and pressed the button, and an arm shoved its way into the door stopping it. A man in his mid twenties stepped inside and smirked at her.

"I'm sorry, I didn't see you there." Yui bowed lightly.

The man chuckled and leaned against the wall gazing at Yui. She looked at him briefly before adverting her gaze back to the door, and moving slightly away from him. He was looking at her strangely. He shifted slightly closer and leaned towards her making Yui jerk away from him. He looked at her and gave her a broad smile. "You smell divine." He sighed.

The doors slipped open and Yui stepped out of the elevator quickly and made her way to the lab. She could hear footsteps behind her, and someone whistling, she picked up her pace slightly. She found the door she was looking for and slipped inside and let out a sigh of relief. She stepped further into the room and spoke briefly with the lab techs. "Petra just needed me to drop these off for her, there is a slight rush on these. I believe she is waiting for the results tonight."

One lab tech looked up and smiled gently at Yui. "Of course, my dear. We will fax the report when we are done. Thank you for bringing them up to us, we are slightly short handed tonight."

Yui giggled and laid a hand on her belly. "It is no problem, pretty soon I will not be able to walk that far."

The tech chuckle and nodded. "I suppose that's true. Well...thanks again." They slipped through a door that lead to the back, and Yui turned to go back to her sister's office. She made her way to the elevator and pressed the button. He heard a sound behind her, and as she turned her head she felt something sharp pinch her arm. She looked up and saw the same man she met earlier in the elevator, smirking down at her holding a needle in her arm, as darkness consumed her and fell limply into his arms.

The man pulled her up into his arms and strode quickly to the stairs. He walked to the bottom floor and took the side exit from the building. He nodded as his familiar opened his door for him to his waiting car. He settled in the back with Yui securely in his arms and brushed her hair to the side. There was another man sitting in their already who was looking at Yui.

"Are you sure about this, Aoi?"

Aoi shifted Yui closer to him and sighed, leaning his head back. "More than sure, Diachi. The moment I caught her scent, I had to have her. It took me weeks to get her alone."

Diachi furrowed his brows. "It appears she is with child."

Aoi placed his hand on her swollen abdomen and caressed it lightly. "I will make sure I take care of her. I don't want her to hate me after all."

Diachi looked out the window and chuckled. "I'm sure she will either way."

Aoi let out a low growl and pulled Yui even closer. "I doesn't matter to me, either way she will be mine for eternity."

Chapter Text

Yui groaned as she came to. She was disoriented and dizzy. She blinked and looked around. She was in a large bedroom, dark red in color, she didn't recognize it at all. She sat up with a gasp when the memories came flooding back to her.

"Oh, good. You're awake." Someone called from the corner of the room.

Yui shifted back, and placed her hand on her abdomen. "W-what do you want?"

The man stepped from the shadows and came closer to her. "That's simple." He grinned. "You."

Yui's mouth parted. "M-me?" Her brows knitted together as she looked at the man. "Please...just let me go."

The man let out a chuckle and sat on the bed close to her. "Why would I do that? Do you realize how long it took me to actually get you alone so I could take you?"

"They will find me, you know." Yui growled.

"Who will find you?" He laughed. "You have been here for two days now, and no one has tried to come for you yet."

Yui jumped up and ran to the door. It was locked and she yanked hard, trying to break it open. The man was behind her in an instant and he slammed his hands on either side of her head, and leaned his body against hers. "You know, I love it when they put up a fight." He whispered. He leaned down and licked the shell of her ear, making Yui tremble. "How about we play hard to get. Hmm. I will even give you a head start." He hummed against her neck.

She ducked under his arm and bolted to the veranda door. She yanked the door open and ran outside. She could hear laughter behind her as she ran. "There is no where you can go, little mouse. I will find you."

Yui grunted as she continued forward. It was dark, and there was no moon to light the way, however she had heightened scenes and was able to navigate her way. There was a gust of wind to her left and she let out a shriek when an arm clamped around her waist. "Yui."

Yui struggled against the hold until she recognized the voice. "S-shu?"

"Yes, my brothers have this. Father, and Petra are here, too. Let me get you out of here." He whispered.

She was hoisted into Shu's hold and he flitted through the woods. Yui could hear screams in the distance, as the fighting began. "T-the others." She gasped.

Shu looked down at her and smirked as he ran. "They will be fine. Father and Petra are with them. We knew you were here, we were waiting for you to wake to get your exact location. This estate is very large."

Yui wrapped her arms around Shu's neck as he jumped up onto a wall and held her closer. He turned and looked out towards the screams and grinned. He looked down at Yui and pulled her closer, he could feel her trembling.

"Are you alright? Did he hurt you?"

"No." She whispered. "I just don't feel very well." She closed her eyes as the adrenaline left her body.

Shu sat down on the wall and cradled her. "When was the last time you fed?"

"I don't know, how long have I've been gone? He said two days."

Shu growled. "Two days. Feed from me, please. The others will be back shortly." He pulled her closer and guided her head to his neck.

Yui bit gently and started to drink deeply. She closed her eyes and sighed as she started to feel slightly better. Shu rubbed her baby bump as she fed, and held her closer. Yui pulled back and kissed his neck. "Thank you." She whispered as she closed her eyes.

"Feel better?"

"A bit. I don't want to take too much from you, in case you need to fight."

He let out a chuckle as he stood. "The fight is over. They are almost here." He looked down at Yui and noticed she was curled against him with her eyes closed. He smiled softly down at her and kissed her lips. "It's time to get you home."

He popped to inside the limo where the others were settled. Yui blinked and looked around as the others shifted closer and were gathered around her.

"Oi. Did he hurt you?" Ayato asked.

"N-no." She noticed he had blood on his clothes. "Ayato you're bleeding!" She shifted closer to him and began to look him over.

He wrapped his arms around her and pulled her into his lap. "It's not mine. Are you sure you are alright." He buried his head in the crook of her neck, holding her tight. She expected him to bite, but he just held her tightly against him.

"She still needs to feed. She hasn't fed in two days, and barely took any from me." Shu growled.

Ayato narrowed his eyes are her. "You will feed." He shifted her closer and Yui sighed as she nuzzled his neck and bit into him. Ayato leaned back and rubbed her back and sighed. Yui drank for a few moments and leaned back and pressed a soft kiss to his mouth. "That's not enough." he growled.

Yui furrowed her brows. "I don't want to take too much."

Kanato giggled as he pulled her to him. "Fed from each of us, Yui. That way you will get enough." Yui chewed her lip and nodded.

As Yui fed from Kanato, Karl nodded with agreement. "This will make your bonds better. I know it's been some time since you have fed from her, but with your blood it should also call to you. You will be able to find her much faster next time."

Laito pulled her to his lap and kissed her hard. He threaded his hands through her hair and grinned at her. He guided her head to his neck and let out a loud moan and bucked into her making her squeak.

"Will you stop that." Reiji hissed. "Keep that in your private quarters."

"Buzz kill." Laito sighed as Subaru tugged Yui to him.

Subaru held Yui tight as she fed from him and stroked her hair. He loved the feeling of being fed from. He didn't realize it could be so pleasurable. Maybe it was because it was with Yui.

Yui settled into Subaru's arms, and Reiji raised a brow at her and held out his hand. Yui nodded and crawled next to him. He huffed with annoyance and pulled her into his lap and grasped her hips. Yui nuzzled his neck and bit. Reiji's breath hitched and he squeezed her hips harder as she fed. Laito let out a chuckle as he watched Reiji's face turn slightly pink as Yui fed. Reiji pulled her more firmly on his lap as Yui stopped feeding, enjoying the feel of her pressed to him. She leaned against his chest and closed her eyes.

"Now, no more disappearing from us, Bitch-chan." Laito giggled.

"Yes, it was very inconvenient not having you at home." Reiji grumbled.

"When we get home, I would like to check on the children." Karl looked at Petra. "The equipment was delivered to their house, was it not?"

Petra nodded. "Yes, it was a few hours ago."

Karl looked at Yui. "How are you feeling, little one?"

Yui blinked her eyes and looked at him. "I still feel slightly dizzy, and I ache all over."

"I suspect it is because the children were feeding from you, and you were not getting what you needed to help them."

"Will they be okay?"

"I'm sure they are fine. We will check to make sure."

The limo pulled up to the estate and Reiji carried Yui into his study not wanting to let her go, even though he was still slightly harsh with her. He knew he needed to be more pleasant to Yui, but he was set in his ways. He laid her gently on the exam table that had been set up and stepped back as Petra, and Karl began to set up the equipment to look.

Reiji was shocked when Yui reached out and grabbed his hand as his father began the ultrasound. The brothers all stared at the monitor in awe. They could see little tiny blips on the screen, and Petra pointed out each baby.

Karl looked over his shoulder and grinned. "They are all fine, little one. They are each growing well." He cleaned off her belly and helped her sit up. "However, I need you to be on bed rest for a bit. You will need to gain your strength back, and that would be difficult with you working."

Yui pouted. "B-but I like working."

He laid a hand gently on her head. "I know. However, I would feel better if you were to stay here where someone could watch over you."

Yui sighed and nodded. "I understand."

"I think perhaps you will need to be moved downstairs as well. You could trip and fall down those stairs with as clumsy as you are." Reiji said.

Yui furrowed her brows. "Where will I sleep?"

Reiji looked at his brothers and back down at her. "There is a room that is attached to my Study. It is fully furnished with everything you will need. I of course have my own chambers just down the hall, so someone will be close to you."

Ayato growled lightly and crossed his arms over his chest. "As long as you don't restrict access to see her, seeing how we have to come into your study."

Reiji raised a brow. "As long as you don't break or touch anything, I do not have a problem with it."

Petra wrapped an arm around Yui. "How about I help you bathe while the others gather your belongings and bring them to your new chambers."

"Alright." Yui said quietly. Petra lifted Yui in her arms making her yelp in surprised. She chuckled as she walked towards Yui's new chambers that Reiji pointed out.

Karl turned to his sons and smirked. "You will have one month to bond with her, to make the unbreakable bond, making her your wife. Forcing her to bond with you, and getting her pregnant was not the way we do things. You are lucky you didn't kill her. From now one, you will each ensure her safety. Someone is to be with her at all times. Each of you will take turns sleeping in her chambers, and perhaps once you have gained her trust, she will submit willingly to you, and you can make the ritual complete. Petra is speaking to Yui about it as I speak to you about this, let her do this at her own pace. She will know she has a month to do this, and don't force it on her. Don't make me regret giving you this chance with her...if you fail me, I will take her."

Reiji cleared his throat and nodded. "Of course, father. I will arrange a schedule for us to stick to so someone is always with her."

"Wonderful. I will be back in a few weeks to check on her again. She knows to call me if there is a problem with any of you, and don't forget, I can feel her fear, and pain just like Petra can, so don't think you can keep it from me." With that final parting statement, Karl vanished from the room leaving the brothers there to think about how to gain Yui's trust back.

Chapter Text

Yui settled into her bed and sighed. She was exhausted from tonight's events. She and Petra had a long talk while she was bathing tonight, and she had a lot to think about. She was suppose to finish the ritual, and bond with the brother's within a month. She wasn't entirely sure how she was going to accomplish that. Her feelings towards them were always so conflicting. Her past memories were at war with her most recent memories of them.

A light knock on the door brought Yui out of her musings. "Yui, it's Subaru. May I come in?"

"Come in, Subaru." She sat up in bed and gave him a small smile when he entered. "Is everything alright?"

His cheeks turned a light shade of pink. "Yes. I'm suppose to...someone has to sleep in here with you each night. We spoke to father tonight, and he demanded that we each stay with you." He looked the other way while speaking.

Yui let out a soft sigh as she looked at him. "I see." Yui shifted slightly in bed. "You can come over here if you wish." She paused for a moment. "Unless you wish to sleep on the couch?" She raised a brow.

Subaru looked at her and gave a half grin. "No. The bed would be appreciated." He stepped beside the bed and slipped under the covers next to her and looked at her. "Is this okay?" He whispered.

Yui nodded softly. "It's fine." She took a deep breath, and let it out slowly. "I need to start working towards trusting you again."

He looked down and frowned. "You don't know how sorry I am for what happened."

"Shu explained to me briefly why it happened."

His head snapped up. "He did? What did he tell you?"

"He said it was because I was the first bride to survive the awakening, and that you all wanted to claim me, and it kinda...came to a head, as he put it. So you all argued that night, and what happened was the result of that."

He nodded and grasped her hand. "I really am sorry, Yui."

"I'm trying to come to terms with it. I am trying to only remember the good times I had with each of you in the past." She smiled up at him.

"I like that idea. We all want to gain your trust back." He shifted slightly closer. "I know father said we had to sleep in here with you, but please believe me when I say we will not touch you without your permission. We all want to make you happy."

"I can see that since I came back here. Thank you. It makes this mess easier." Yui waved her hand around the room. "I want to be a good mate to all of you, but you have to understand that this is not something I was raised as seeing as normal."

He let out a low chuckle. "I can understand that. You grew up as a human."

Yui chewed her lip for a moment deciding if she should share that she remembered her past with all of them. "I didn't remember my life before...with each of you." She whispered. "I...I remember everything now, and that is why it is difficult at times."

"You know...you know you are Evangeline?" Subaru looked at her with eyes that were wide, and somewhat hopeful.

Yui gave a grin. "Yes. Uncle unblocked my memories the day you came to get me." She lifted her hand and cupped his cheek. "I remember all of my time with you. How we used to talk for hours about everything. How you felt. How did you know?"

He placed his hand over hers and closed his eyes. "You were sleeping when you had your fever, humming your favorite melody you composed, we all figured it out rather quickly after that." He opened his eyes and looked at her. "I missed you so much."

She wrapped her arms around him and pulled him close. "I missed you, too. Although, I didn't know what or who I was missing. I just always felt there was something missing in my life." She pulled back and gave him a watery smile. "Right now my past memories are at war with the newer ones. I don't like the way it makes me feel."

He let out a low sigh. "I don't like what we did, or how it makes me feel either."

"How about we start fresh today? I will do my best to move past it, and only remember the affection I had for all of you then."

He leaned forward and paused before he closed his eyes and brushed his lips against hers. "I love you, Yui." He whispered against her lips.

She shifted closer and pressed her lips more firmly to his. "I have always love you." She whispered back.

He nipped her lip as he pulled her closer and his tongue delved deeper in her mouth. He sighed in her mouth as he deepened the kiss and held her close. He slowed the kiss and planted a soft kiss to her lips. "Thank you."

Yui cleared her throat and grasped his hands. "Um...Petra said I had a month to complete the 'ritual' with each of you. She wouldn't go into great detail on what I needed to do. Could you...would you explain it to me?"

Subaru blushed and looked at the wall above her head. "Well...from my understanding, we will each take blood from each other willingly, and um...well, we willing give each other our..." He closed his eyes trying to come up with the correct phrasing.

"Oh." She let out a small giggle. "I see. So we will have to have sex." She let out a chuckle. "And have a blood exchange during it?"

He looked down at her and smirked. "Yes. That is the gist of it."

Yui pursed her lips thinking about it. Could she willingly give her body to them. She swallowed the dryness in her throat thinking about it. If she thought about her feelings she had for them in her past, she willingly could do that without hesitation. "I think I could try. If I ask you to stop. Do you think you could stop? I mean if I get too uncomfortable?"

"Of course I would. Like I said, we don't want to hurt you anymore. We all love you, Yui."

Yui shifted closer. "I think I would like to try tonight with you, if that is alright?"

Subaru felt himself twitch when she spoke those words. "Only if you are sure." He whispered as he leaned closer.

"Yes. I'm sure. I trust you." She pressed her lips to his and shifted so she was straddling his lap. She thought this would be the easiest way since she had a slight baby bump in the way.

Subaru returned the kiss in kind, and let out a soft moan and lightly bucked into her, making her gasp in his mouth. Yui shifted slightly and rotated her hips, and furrowed her brows when she enjoyed the friction. They continued to grind into each other while their kissed became more heated. Yui lowered her hands and teased the edge of his night shirt and started to lift it higher. Subaru paused from the kiss for a moment before pulling it over his head and tossing it to the side.

They each took their time undressing each other slowly, enjoying just being close to each other. Yui looked at him and blushed when they were both laying next to each other naked, their bodies wrapped around each other. He cupped her cheek and smiled softly. "You are beautiful, Yui." He kissed her neck, kissing his way further down, leaving little kisses and nips until he reached the rosy peak of her breasts. He looked up at her as he licked around her pert nipple before taking it in his mouth and lightly biting it, causing her to moan, and arch into him.

His hand slipped to her thighs and caressed her gently, working his way up to her core. He wanted to go slow, and savor his night with Yui, but he also knew he had to go slow in order to let her know she had a choice, and he wouldn't do anything to harm her. He shifted higher and kissed her slowly as he slipped a finger inside her, and he swallowed the gasp she let out.

Yui lifted her hand and touched him with feather light touches that were driving him insane. He loved the feel of her fingers tracing lazy patters against her heated skin, but he wanted more, so much more with her. Her touches meant so much to him. She saw him for who he was, and understood him, unlike the others. He always felt like an outcast even in his own family. Before he knew that Yui was their Eve, he had a connection to her.

Subaru shifted closer to her, and settled between her legs, leaning his forehead against her and gazed into her eyes. Her breathing was slightly labored from the intensity of their kisses, and touches. "Yui. Is it alright...are you ready?" He whispered.

She gave a small nod. "Do you think, would it be alright if I straddled you lap again? I feel less...confined."

Subaru cupped her cheek and rolled them so she was laying on top of him. Yui let out a yelp of surprise and pushed herself up a bit. Subaru shifted his hips and sat up, grasping her hips. "Is this better?"

"Yes." He sighed as he leaned in a kissed her slowly.

"Let me help you. Take your time, we will do this at your pace." He said in a soft tone as he helped her raise above him. He grabbed his length, and teased her entrance briefly before he pressed his hips up, entering her slowly. He closed his eyes briefly and opened them with almost a pained expression. "Whenever you are ready, just lower yourself." He said in a strangled voice. He wanted to ravish her. The connection he wanted with her was almost overpowering.

Yui slowly lowered herself down, inch by inch, at a snails pace until he filled her to the hilt. He let out a garbled moan as she rotated her hips slightly, and she let out a small gasp. She felt...full. Not in an unpleasant way. She cupped Subaru's cheeks and kissed him softly. "Can you help me? I...I don't know what to do."

Subaru grasped her hips as he deepened the kiss and rocked her against him. She let out a moan in his mouth and bit his tongue lightly. When Subaru moved her it felt extremely good. She could feel something inside her abdomen coil. She wrapped her arms around his neck as she helped him rock her hips. She started to pick up the pace slightly and tilted her head back. Subaru lowered his head and took her rosy peak into his mouth, sucking it harder, paying equal attention to both.

Yui let out small mewls of pleasure as Subaru guided her to a steady rhythm. He felt himself building, and was trying to hold out until he got Yui there. He lifted his head and bit into her shoulder gently as he squeezed her hips harder and picked up faster. Yui saw stars when Subaru bit into her. Warmth flooded her body as she felt herself being brought higher. She nuzzled his neck and bit, and drank deeply. Subaru let out a loud moan, and sucked harder on her shoulder.

Yui felt the connection to Subaru stitching together. It was even stronger than the one she had with Shu. She felt herself build, and let go of his neck as her orgasm barreled into her. Subaru felt Yui tighten around him, and he let go. He heard Yui say his name as a litany from her rosy lips and he gasped out her name as he held her tight against him as they road out their orgasm together.

When their movements stopped Yui leaned her head back and cupped his cheeks and kissed him deeply. "Thank you, Subaru." She whispered against his lips. "I love you."

Subaru closed his eyes and threaded his fingers through her silky locks and held her close to him. This is the connection he wanted with her. He had no idea the fierceness of their bond would be so powerful. He could felt the contentment of Yui as he shifted them in a more comfortable position as they laid down next to each other, and continued to kiss.

His hands drifted down to her swollen abdomen and laid his hand their protectively. 'This is where my life is...right her with her.' He pressed soft kissed on her face, and neck and sighed as he pulled her closer to him and closed his eyes. Yui wrapped her arms around his waist and held him tight, as they both drifted off to sleep, content with the knowledge that now they were truly bonded to each other.

Chapter Text

A soft brush of fabric awoken Yui from her slumber. She slowly opened her eyes and blinked. "Kanato." She breathed.

Kanato giggled as he settled next to Yui. "You fell asleep while reading again so I covered you." He nuzzled her neck and sighed. "Do you hate me, Yui?"

Yui turned her body towards Kanato and wrapped an arm around him. "Of course not." She whispered.

He lets out a long sigh and nods. "Teddy and I have been worried that you hate us since we hurt you."

She held him closer and kissed the top of his head. "No, Kanato. That is in the past." She pauses for a moment. "I know you won't hurt me now."

Kanato lifted his gaze to hers and gives her a small smile. He leaned closer and pressed his lips to her in a soft kiss. Yui let out a small gasp, and Kanato slipped his tongue in her mouth and sighed against her lips. "Yui." He whispered.

Yui pulled back and blinked at him. Confusion on her face. "Y-yes?"

"I want to...to be with you tonight."

Yui blushed and turned her head. She knew she had a month to finish the ritual with each of them. She also knew how Kanato could be. He could loose his temper if she denied him. She turned her gaze back to him and nodded. He let out a soft giggle and pulled her in his arms and popped them into her chambers. He settled her on the bed and smiled. "It's Teddy and I's turn to sleep with you tonight."

Yui shifted higher in the bed and slipped under the covers. Kanato placed Teddy on the nightstand on the side of the bed and crawled slowly towards her. His face serious. It is a face Yui had never seen Kanato ware before. He grabbed her wrist and pulled them over her head, forcing her back as he loomed over her, his lips are on hers, soft and inviting. "I like kissing you, Yui. You taste sweet." He hummed against her lips.

Yui trembled lightly as he held her tight, her mind full of fear. She tried to bury it down as Kanato planted soft kisses on her neck and worked his way down. She took a shuttering breath as he shifted his weight and nestled himself between her legs. He loosed his grip on her hands and ran his fingers down her side and teased the edge of her nightgown.

Kanato smiled at her when she lifted her hips so he could pull it up further. He pulled if off her body, and tossed it to the side and looked at her with a lidded look. He pulled his shirt off, and it soon joined hers on the floor. He pulled her to him, and pressed her petite body against his and sighed.

Yui's breath hitched when Kanato leaned her back slightly and took her breast in her mouth, and wrapped his hand around her hair. "Do you like this Yui?" Kanato whispered.

"Y-yes." She grasped his shoulders and squeezed them lightly as Kanato lavished her breast.

Kanato laid her gently down, and leaned back and planted kisses down her side and across her swollen abdomen. He paused there for a moment, and his fingers glided against her skin. He lowered his hand and slipped them under her panties slowly, slipping a finger in her folds.

Yui jolted slightly from the sensation, but relaxed a bit when Kanato moved by her head, and settled next to her, and kissed her slowly. He moaned against her lips, and shifted closer to her, and grabbed her hand, guiding it inside his boxers. "Touch me, Yui."

Yui grabbed his length, and stroked it slowly as Kanato slipped another finger inside her. This thumb brushing against the bundle of nerves as he worked her core. "Harder." He grunted as he shifted his hips towards her.

He let out a moan and rolled on his back, removing his hand from her, and slipped his sleeping pants, and boxers off in one movement. He hovered over her and spread her legs wider and grabbed his length and stroked it lightly, rubbing it against her covered core. "I need to be inside you."

Yui tilted her hips as he slipped her panties down and tossed them. He pulled her closer and guided himself to her. He let out a long sigh as he pushed forward and slipped inside her, and rocked his hips against her. He looked down at her and smiled. "I love you, Yui." He groaned as he picked up his pace.

Yui bucked her hips, and met his rhythm. She could feel herself building as Kanato lifted her leg and angled himself deeper inside of her. He looked down at her, leaning forward, his lips brushing against her shoulder. "Bite me, Yui. I want you to feed from me." His thrust becoming faster, and he squeezed her leg tighter as he bit her shoulder.

Yui took at shuttering breath as she lifted her head and bit gently into Kanato as she was brought close to her climax. Kanato let out a moan when Yui's teeth sank into him. She could feel their bond becoming closer, as she let go, and Kanato soon followed. She clung tighter to him as he gave several more powerful thrusts and held her still against him as she continued to feed from him. Yui licked his shoulder and let out her breath. "I love you, too, Kanato." She whispered.

Kanato pulled out of her, and rolled on his side, pulling Yui closer to him. He settled her on his chest, and threaded his fingers through her hair. "Do you love me really?"

Yui sighed and pulled him closer. "Yes, I do." She kissed his chest and shifted closer to him. "I remember how we used to sleep side by side each day with Teddy." She let out short giggle. "You would always sneak in my room and settle next to me, curling around me as you slept.

Kanato lifted his head and looked down at her and kissed the top of her head. "You are the only one that showed me love then...and now." He reached over and grabbed Teddy, and placed him under his arm and sighed. "I'm glad you are back with us, Eve. If you leave us again, I will find you, and kill you."

Yui's eyes widened for a brief moment. She knew that Kanato had abandonment issues, and that what made him so angry. He was mistreated by his mother, and most of the time he would seek her out and cry in her arms. Her heart clenched painfully thinking about it. His mother had died, but he still felt alone when she wasn't around. How had it been for him when she disappeared, and he thought she had been killed? "I won't leave you again, Kanato. I am your wife...you mate for life. We are now bound to each other." She closed her eyes and took a deep breath as Kanato let out a long sigh and snuggled closer to her. At least now Kanato would know that he was loved everyday.

Chapter Text

"So how are they treating you really?" Petra looked over at her sister, Yui who was leaning her head against the window of the limo as they drove home from shopping for new clothes for her.

Yui let out a soft sigh. "They have been kind to me. I am trying to push what happened recently away. I do remember them, how much I loved them before, so it is helping...a bit."

Petra nodded. "I can understand that." She paused for a moment and turned towards Yui and grasped her hand. "How many have you bonded with?"

Yui lifted her head and frowned. "Just Subaru and Kanato so far."

"I see. You know uncle has given you a month. You only have two more weeks to get it done."

Yui closed her eyes and leaned her head back on the window. "I know. It's just difficult for me to be mated to six."

Petra snorted and squeezed Yui's hand. "I know. It will get easier. You have to remember you are immortal, and so are they. You will have each of them by your side for eternity."

Yui yawned and nodded. "I know." She said quietly.

Petra lifted her hand and brushed some of Yui's hair to the side. "Are you feeling alright? Was the shopping too much for you?"

"I just feel really tired is all. I will be okay."

Petra pursed her lips and settled back in her seat as they pulled up to the estate. "Why don't we get you settled for the day, so you can sleep."

Yui simply nodded and opened her door and stepped out of the limo. She stretched her sore body and rested her hand gingerly on her abdomen. Petra slid out behind her and nodded to the familiar who stepped next to them. "Bring your mistresses purchases to her room." She wrapped an arm around Yui and helped her towards the house. She internally smirked when she heard the others moving towards the front of the house to check on their Yui.

The door swung open and Ayato stood there and looked down at Yui and frowned. "Oi. What's wrong with her?" He looked over at Petra and narrowed his eyes and Laito, Reiji and Shu joined the fray.

Petra let out a huff. "She is just tired. She is pregnant you know."

Ayato looked back at Yui and his eyes softened. He could see how tired she really was. He bent down and scooped Yui up into his arms and started towards her suite, causing Yui to let out a soft gasp. At first she stiffened in his arms, but soon relaxed and leaned her head on his shoulder as he continued forward.

Reiji peered down at Yui and touched her face. "She feels a little warm. Did you feed her while you were out?"

"Of course I did. Of course she refused to drink from me, so I brought human blood as back up."

Reiji let out an annoyed grunt as he walked forward and stepped into Yui's suite with the others. Ayato laid Yui on the bed and settled next to her. "Oi. Open your eyes."

Yui blinked up and him and offered a small smile. "I'm fine, just a little sleepy." She let out another small yawn and covered her mouth and slowly closed her eyes. "I will be okay."

Petra sighed and kissed Yui on the forehead. "Stop being stubborn. I am going to leave you in their care, but I will be back tomorrow night. There is someone who has been wanting to see you again." She let out a soft giggle at Yui's confused face. "I will call you when we are on the way. Get some sleep." She stepped away from the bed, and gave a sharp nod to the others who were around Yui as she left.

"I need to bathe." Yui mumbled. She sat up slowly and stood as Ayato moved to give her room. "I don't know who is supposed to sleep her today, but I will be out soon." She went to her dresser and fumbled through the clothes and pulled out her night clothes and staggered to the bathroom quietly closing the door.

Laito let out a soft giggle as he stretched out on the bed. "Seems like our little Yui is tired tonight."

Ayato looked at the door and shook his head. "Just...just keep an eye out for her, Reiji. I know it's your turn tonight." He got up and left the room with his fist clenched. He didn't want to leave Yui, but he knew that it was not his night to be with her. He was sure Reiji would protect her even from herself.

Laito pouted as he got up from the bed and winked at Reiji. "Enjoy." He popped out of the room leaving Shu, and Reiji alone.

Shu looked over at Reiji and raised a brow. "I will stay here until you get back. I know you still have to shower and change." Shu laid down on the bed, and folded his hands behind his head. "You better hurry, brother."

Reiji narrowed his eyes at Shu, but soon he popped out of the room. Shu listened intently to Yui's soft humming while she took her bath. He enjoyed listening to her when she sang, or even hummed. She had such a melodic voice, it was comforting. He took a deep breath and let out a soft moan when the scent of Yui assaulted him. She was everywhere in this room. Even though it had the others in the mix, hers was almost over powering. It made his mouth water slightly, and his throat ache.

Shu opened one eye when Reiji appeared in the room. "You may leave now. I will assure that she retires to bed soon."

Shu let out a snort and closed his eyes. "Why don't we both stay in here to make sure she is alright. Father never mentioned that we couldn't both sleep in the room with her. He just said that at least one of us had to."

Reiji sank down on the nearby couch and studied his brother. It was true that Yui was all of their bride, however there had to be some rules about their individual time with her. He nor Shu were bound to her yet, and with them both their it may make that difficult.

Shu seeming to understand what his brother was thinking let out a low sigh. "She is comfortable with me, perhaps she would be more relaxed around you with a buffer around. You know whenever she is with you, she is tense."

Reiji pursed his lips as he thought about it. It was true, whenever he was to be with Yui alone, she seemed to move towards the edge of the bed, and scoot away from him. When she fed from him, she immediately would remove herself from his embrace, with the exception of one time, and that was because she had not fed for two days. He closed his eyes and tried to shake off the memories of that night. What that night happened he was the one that was the roughest with her. He called her lewd, and he believed hurt her the worst. "As long as she is alright with it. I suppose it couldn't hurt. She only has two more weeks to bond with the rest of us."

Shu sat up in the bed and tilted his head to the side. "Shit." He popped off the bed, and Reiji heard the splash of the water in the bathroom. Reiji's stomach dropped as he popped into the bathroom and watched Shu pick Yui out of the tub, and onto the floor. She started to cough and tremble in his hold as he lifted her forward and patted her back. "You idiot. You fell asleep. You could have killed yourself." Shu hissed as he pulled her closer. He lifted a shaky hand and brushed the hair out of her face as Yui continued to cough up water, gripping his arm tight. She had scared the shit out of him seeing her submerged under the water.

Reiji grabbed a towel and wrapped it around her shoulders. He cupped the back of her head and held onto her while she continued to wheeze and cough. "Slow breaths, Yui." He leaned his face closer to hers, and saw the fear in her eyes, as they watered. She was still trying to catch her breath. "Hey...look at me. Relax, you are okay now. We've got you." He said in a soft tone.

Yui blinked up at Reiji as she tried to listen to his instructions. What startled her the most was the expression on his face. He always had such a stern face in any situation, so it was surprising to see him trying to comfort her. She concentrated on his face, and slowed her gasping breaths, which helped her breath slightly easier. She reached out her other hand and gripped his arm as she continued to look at him. Her heartbeat slowed and she was able to take a deep breath.

Yui let out a yelp when Ayato, Laito, Subaru and Kanato appeared in front of her. She tugged on the towel and tried to cover her naked form as the knelt in front of her. "Kanato, and Subaru said there was something wrong." Ayato cupped her cheek and peered down at her. The others shouldered their way between Reiji and Shu and placed a hand on her, needing to feel her warmth to make sure she was really okay.

Reiji pursed his lips for a moment and pulled out another towel and covered Yui, he could tell she was starting to tremble even more being surrounded by all of them. "She is fine now." He snapped.

Yui curled against Shu and nodded. "I'm fine." She rasped out. "Thank you for coming to check on me, but I am alright." She looked at the other four and gave them a soft smile. "I was silly and fell asleep. Shu and Reiji got to me on time. I will be alright."

Ayato flicked her forehead and closed his eyes. "Idiot." He grumbled. "Don't scare us like that." He leaned in and kissed her gently on her lips and stood up and looked down at her. "Get some rest." He popped out of the room just as suddenly as he appeared, making Yui blink.

Laito kissed her cheek and sighed. "Be more careful, Bitch-chan. It's not just you that you need to take care of you know." He grumbled as he left. He didn't like the panicked look of Kanato or Subaru when they felt Yui's distress. He hated not be bonded to her yet, but he knew he would be eventually.

Kanato pursed his lips as he looked at his mate. He simply leaned in and kissed her for a brief moment, pulled back and looked at her with furrowed brows. He stood and hugged Teddy closer and left. He didn't like feeling Yui's fear so suddenly like that. It made him almost feel...empty. He popped into his room, and flopped onto his bed and let out a low groan. His emotions were all over the place. He was suddenly drained.

Subaru cupped her cheek and brushed his hand down to her neck and settled it on her shoulder. He kissed her lips and sighed. "Please be more careful, we...just be more careful." He looked over at Reiji and nodded before he left.

Yui leaned closer to Shu and let out a low sigh. "Sorry." She croaked.

Shu pulled her closer and rubbed her back. "You just...you have no idea how much we all worry about you now." He said in a low tone.

Reiji stood and gathered her clothes and came back over and settled next to her. "Let us help you get dressed."

Yui looked up at him startled, it was almost unsettling how nice he was being to her. She took a deep breath and nodded. Shu and Reiji made short work of getting their bride dressed and soon she was settled on the bed, laying on her back in between the both of them.

Shu leaned over and kissed her shoulder lightly. "Would it be alright if I stayed in here with you tonight with Reiji?" He whispered as he kissed her shoulder again.

Yui shivered as he kissed her. "Y-yes."

Shu let out a low chuckle and laid his hand on her swollen belly and made lazy patterns on it. He looked up at his brother, and nodded his head towards Yui, trying to let him know to try to comfort her, and perhaps advance their relationship.

Reiji swallowed the dryness of his throat and shifted closer to Yui. He took off his glasses and set them on the nightstand and slowly leaned closer to her. He was almost afraid to touch her, but maybe with Shu there she would be more receptive to him being closer to her.

Yui saw the movement and turned her head and looked over at Reiji who was leaning close to her. She could feel his breath brush across her face, and he slowly placed his hand on her abdomen while looking at her. She almost wanted to giggle at his expression. He looked terrified. She gave him a gentle smile, and lifted her hand and cupped his cheek, trying to make that connection with him. "Thank you, Reiji." She whispered. "For covering me."

Reiji moved closer to her and lowered his head slowly, looking in her eyes, trying to judge her reaction. He brushed his lips against hers, and he felt her warm breath against his lips. He felt himself twitch being so close to her warmth. He could taste her scent on his tongue as her soft breaths brushed against him. "May I kiss you?" He whispered.

Yui closed her eyes and nodded. "Yes."

Reiji sighed against her lips as he pressed his against hers. They were soft, and molded to his perfectly. He had only kissed her once, and that really wasn't her...not really. Yui let out a small gasp and Reiji slipped his tongue into her mouth and pressed closer to her, enjoying the way her body felt pressed against his.

Shu shifted closer and nuzzled her neck, as Reiji kissed Yui. He was feeling flushed being this close to her, and feeling her skin beneath his lips. Yui let out a soft moan when he flicked his tongue out and slowly licked her neck. "Yui...I want to bite you." He moaned against her.

Yui moved her hand and pulled Shu closer to her, and squeezed his leg. Shu sank his teeth slowly into her neck and Yui shuttered slightly, pulling Reiji closer to her. She was feeling flushed all over, and she began to feel connected to them both. She melted into Reiji, and let go of her fear, and decided to let go of everything, and just feel the love and connection she was feeling with them.

Reiji moaned as he shifted his hips, against her leg. He moved his hand slightly and teased the edge of her nightgown making Yui's breath hitch slightly. His hand stilled unsure if that is what she wanted, so he kept still, just enjoying the kiss. His eyes snapped open when he felt Yui's small hand on his length, inside his boxers, and began to move slightly. He let out a low growl and his kiss became deeper. His hand slipped into her wet folds, and Yui's hips bucked into his waiting palm.

Reiji broke from the kiss, pulling her gown up over her head and tossing it to the side. He looked down at Yui who was slightly panting, and flushed. He had never seen anything more beautiful in his life. He shifted his hips and pulled down his sleeping pants, and boxers together. He got on his knees as Yui continued to work him, and started to unbutton his shirt as he looked down at her.

Shu took over where Reiji left off, and slipped his finger inside of Yui and suckled one of her breast, lightly biting it. Yui arched her back and pulled at Shu's hair as he continued to lavish her breast. Reiji looked down at Yui and cupped her cheek. He was going to lay back down beside her when she shifted closer to him, and tentatively licked. His eyes widened as Yui brought him in her warm mouth, and sucked.

Reiji's air wooshed out of him as Yui started to twirl her tongue around him. Her brows were furrowed as her head continued to bob, and pleasure him. Reiji let out a hiss when she pulled him in her mouth deeper. "Ngnn. Y-yes." He moaned. "Good girl." He breathed as he cupped the back of her head. He tipped his head back, and enjoyed the sensation, and pleasure that his bride was giving him. He looked down at her after a moment, and the sight of seeing her almost made him come undone.

Shu slipped her panties off and moved towards her neck leaving little nips, and kisses along the way. "Do you trust us?" He whispered seductively in her ear as he started to remove his clothes. Yui let out a moan as Shu brushed up against her. "I'm going to move you. Don't stop what you are doing. If you need us to stop, let us know." He shifted her body to a kneeling position and nodded over at Reiji. "Lean against the headboard, and sit back."

Reiji panted as he moved slowly with Yui. He grasped her hair as she started to go slightly faster. Shu caressed her back, loving the feeling of her skin under his fingers. He nudged her legs apart and grasped his length, and guided it to her entrance. He slipped into her wet folds slowly and grunted as he filled her. He grasped her hips lightly as he began to rock into her slowly.

Yui was awash of sensation. She let out a shuttered breath as Reiji moved his hands to her breasts, and rolled her nipples, pinching lightly. She was could feel Shu, and Reiji everywhere, and she began to tingle. She let out a low moan as Shu slipped his hand around her, and played with the bundle of nerves at her core. He began to work faster, and she could feel herself building as he brushed something deep within her.

Shu leaned over closer to her when he felt her walls start to quiver. He pulled her up away from Reiji and started to pump faster, causing her to cry out. Reiji watched with lidded eyes as Yui's face went slack and cried out a second time when Shu bit her neck as he brought her over the edge. He moved his arm towards her lips and groaned. "Feed from me, Yui." He grunted as he wrapped an arm around her hips and pulled her close as they both shuttered. Her lips brushed against his wrist, and she bit, drinking from him as her orgasm felt like it was going to shatter her, it was so powerful. She felt the bond once again, stitch together with Shu, this time it was almost overpowering. She almost wanted to cry from the intensity of it.

Shu panted, and tried to slow his breath as he licked her wound clean. He looked up at Reiji and smirk. Reiji gave him a lazy smile as he grasped Yui by the shoulders and pulled her to him. Shu let her go, and pulled out of her and settled closer to the pair, as Reiji lifted her closer to him. "I need to be inside you." He rasped out, and slipped inside her. He leaned her back slightly and slowly lowered her down to the bed, with him still inside her.

"I love you, Yui." He grunted as he picked up his pace. Reiji leaned his head down and bit her neck as he continued to slam into her. He loved how she felt wrapped around him. He body was soft, and warm. It was everything to him that he was bonding with his bride. He never wanted this moment to end. Reiji lifted her leg slightly higher, and rolled his hips against her and she let out a gasp, feeling herself starting to build for a second time. She almost feared having a second orgasm, she wasn't sure she could handle it.

Reiji smirked down at her, and watched as she rolled her eyes in the back of her head and arched her body. He was holding out to make sure she would be his as well. He was going to make sure she reached her pleasure with him. Shu leaned over and claimed one of her breast of Reiji continued his rhythm with Yui. He bit her nipple gently, and sucked hard, drawing blood into his mouth. Yui gasped, and then let out a loud moan.

"I love you, too, Reiji." She groaned. "I love all of you." She lifted her arms above her head, and grasped her hair as she brought to her over the edge. She let out a gasping moan and she grit her teeth as she clenched around Reiji.

Reiji growled as she clamped down and was pulled over. He bit her again, and cupped the back of her head and guided her head to his neck as well. She needed to feed from him now. Yui wrapped her arms around his neck, and clung to him as she continued to feel the waves of pleasure pulsate through her. Reiji was an animal she decided. She had never felt anything like that before. She nuzzled his neck and bit, pulling him closer to her.

Shu moved and laid down next Yui as she fed from Reiji. He sighed as he watched her. It was done. Now she was bound to him, and Reiji as well. He felt sated now that she was truly his. He wanted to make sure he had that bond with her, a closer one than what they previously had. He felt more attuned to her now, and it was an odd feeling. He loved her so much, he almost wanted to crawl insider her heart and protect her closely.

Reiji finally stilled and held Yui close to him. The warmth of their bond wrapping around him. He planted butterfly kisses on her neck as she shuttered against him. He moved, and settled her against his side. He placed her head on his chest and closed his eyes as he ran his fingers through her hair. Shu pulled the covers over the three of them and settled closer to Yui, wrapping his arm around her waist, and planting soft kisses on her back.

Yui let out a small giggle. Reiji stilled his hand, as he stomach flipped at the sound. It was the most beautiful sound he had ever heard. "What do you find so funny?" He asked her bemused.

"I need another bath."

"No." Shu and Reiji both said at the same time, which made her giggle ever louder. Both Shu, and Reiji chuckled at her as they settled closer to her. Reiji decided he would bathe her in the morning to ensure she didn't fall asleep again, and perhaps he would be able to join her this time.

Yui let out a soft yawn and blinked her eyes open. She felt slightly sore from the previous nights activities. She blushed as she looked over at Reiji who was sleeping next to her with his arm wrapped around her. She turned her head and saw Shu nestled against her back. His warm breath brushing against her neck, his arm wrap around her waist.

She shifted her body away from them, and wiggled herself out of bed. It was not quite night time yet, and she knew they would still sleep a little more.

Yui slipped out of the bed and grabbed her clothes from the floor and shook her head. She placed them on her chair. She stretched and shuffled forward and gathered clean clothes for the day and entered the bathroom quietly.

She entered the shower and let out a yawn and leaned her head against the cool tile and closed her eyes. She was still sleepy.

"Well at least you are not falling asleep in the tub."

Yui let out a small shriek started to slip when strong arms went around her frame and steadied her. "R-reiji." She gasped.

Reiji let out a chuckle and turned her in his arms and kissed her softly. "Why didn't you wake me?"

Yui wrapped her arms around his neck and smiled. "You looked very peaceful. I didn't want to disturb you."

Reiji ran his hands down to her hips and squeezed. "How about I make you 'dirty' again before we get you clean." He pressed his lips to hers and sighed as Yui pulled him slightly closer. He pulled her higher up against him, and Yui wrapped her legs around his waist. "Good girl." He hummed against her neck as he lightly bit her shoulder and leaned her back against the wall of the shower.

Reiji helped Yui shower once they were done getting 'dirty', she chuckled as she was getting dressed thinking that perhaps she was correct in her assessment of Reiji, he was an animal. He took her to places she didn't even knew existed.

Yui walked quietly through the mansion, not sure who was actually awake. She left Reiji in his study after another heavy make out session. Shu was gone when they entered the bedroom after their shower. She surmised he went to his bedroom to get ready for the day, she had not seen the others yet.

It was much later after reading in the library for a bit, when Yui stepped outside into the gardens. It was the first time she had been out here since she came back. She frowned trying to brush away the negative feelings of this place. That was in the past. They were all moving forward. She continued down the path of rose bushes, her fingers delicately playing with them as she past releasing their fragrance.

Yui turned her head when she heard a giggle. She turned her head and saw Laito leaning against one of the large walls that surrounded the garden. "What are you doing out here, Bitch-chan?" Laito shoved himself off the wall and twirled his fedora in his hands as he walked closer.

"I thought it would be nice to get some fresh air." She sighed.

Laito stopped in front of her and peered down at her. "Have you eaten recently?"

"I did when I first got up. I will eat again soon."

Laito wrapped his arms around Yui and smirked down at her. "You can feed from me. It's my day after all." He leaned down and pressed a light kiss to her lips. "We can even go somewhere private if you want."

Yui slowly nodded and she saw Laito's eyes flash brighter as he clasped her hand with hers. Laito tugged her along as he walked at a brisk pace to an unknown destination. "Laito, wait." Yui huffed. "You are walking too fast."

Laito turned to her and smirked. He bent down and scooped her up in his arms and started walking forward again. "No problem, we are almost there." Yui squirmed in his hold, but Laito pulled her closer to his body and giggled. "Stop moving, or I will drop you."

Yui stilled and looked up Laito as he walked forward. He had a light blush coloring his cheeks, and a smile teasing his lips. "Where are we going?" She asked.

"It's a surprise." He giggled down at her. "We will be there in a moment."

Laito stopped in front of the boat house that was next to the lake and opened the door, stepping through. He placed Yui on the floor and turned and locked the door. He grabbed Yui's hand again and pulled her further into the building. He opened a door towards the back and ushered her through. Yui's eyes widened when she stepped into the room. The room was fully furnished with couches, bookshelves, and a bed.

Laito settled behind her and nestled his head into the crook of her shoulder. "This is a place I go when I want to be alone." He sighed and pulled her closer. "No-one comes here."

"Laito, it's beautiful." Yui breathed as she looked around. The room was richly decorated and looked amazing. It had a comfortable feeling, which helped Yui to relax a little. Yui furrowed her brows when she noticed a small picture nestled next to the bed. It was a picture of her that she had never seen before. She was in the rose garden, bending over smelling one of the roses with a soft smile tracing her lips. She hadn't realized anyone took a picture of her while she lived here.

Yui stepped out of Laito's embrace and walked towards the picture. She picked it up and looked at it, and then back up at Laito. "Where did you get this picture?" She whispered.

Laito slowly walked towards Yui and took the picture and looked down at it. "I took that picture just after you survived the awakening." He said in a low tone. "When we...when you disappeared, it was very difficult, and I tried to forget you." He set the picture down and looked back up at Yui. "I couldn't no matter what I did. A month after you left I decided to work on this room, it was a place I would come to and talk to you." He cupped her cheek and sighed. "I'm..." He pursed his lips for a moment. "I'm sorry."

Yui swallowed the dryness in her throat. This was a side she had never expected from Laito. She had no idea how the others felt about what they did. She knew they apologized, but she thought they were just saying they were sorry to gain her trust back. This room was almost dedicated to her.

"I don't know what to say." Yui murmured.

Laito let out a soft giggle and pulled her onto the bed with him. "I have other things here, too. I have your hair brush you used, and these pillows are the ones that were on your bed when you left." He let out a low sigh. "I just felt closer to you here, even though you were gone."

He pulled her closer to him and kissed her neck. "Why do you make me feel this way?" He whispered and kissed her neck softly.

Yui ran her fingers through his hair, and felt his breath on her throat. "I don't know." She answered. "I thought I was disposable to all of you."

Laito's head jerked back and looked down at her with a frown on his face. "That's simply not true. You have never been disposable to us." He kissed her slowly and let out a soft moan. "We all wanted you." He ran his fingers down her side and grabbed her hips, looking into her eyes. "We all wanted to lay claim to you, Yui."

Yui held her steady gauze with Laito not sure what she should say. It was surprising hearing that from each of them, they all wanted her. They had treated her kindly until that night they all attacked her. She thought all of this may had been avoided if they had been honest with her to begin with. What was done, was now done. Now she was forced to be with all of them. She let out a soft sigh thinking about it. She did love them, and with each one she had finished the ritual with, she had no regrets at all. The feelings of love she thought she had for them didn't even compare to what she felt for them after. It was a powerful connection.

"Why have you not done this ritual with me, Yui?" He whispered.

"I...I don't know. It's difficult for me to be myself."

Laito chuckled and leaned in a kissed her. "We will never hurt you again, Bitch-chan. You are our bride, and our mate for life now. With you having this bond with us, we will always know where you are, and can protect you better, and you will feel a connection with us as well, and know we tell the truth when we say we want to protect and love you."

Yui slowly nodded. "I understand that." She let out a soft sigh and rolled onto her back, looking at the ceiling. "It is also difficult for me to reconcile that I am now going to be bound to six, it was not how I was raised."

"Well...you were raised to know that before, Eve. Before you disappeared on us."

Yui looked over at him and frowned. "I know. I remember. I just never thought even when I was with all of you before...before I 'died' that I would have six mates. I never really thought about it. I thought that someday you and your brothers would have wives of your own, multiple wives at that, and I would remain at the castle...alone."

Laito let out a snort. "That never would have happened even then. You were and are precious to us. You were our little Eve." Laito shifted closer to her. "It took me a long time to get over your death, and even after it was still difficult some days to not have you with us. You continued to haunt me."

Yui cupped his cheek and pressed her lips briefly to his and pulled back "I'm here now, Laito."

Laito closed his eyes and hung his head. "Don't ever leave us again. I know it would kill me this time. I love you, Yui." His hand drifted to her abdomen and rested there. "You are now giving us so much more. Not only a part of you, but a part of us, the perfect combination."

Yui placed her hand on top of his and wrapped around his hand. "Thank you for telling me how you feel Laito. It has been a very long time since you have told me your feelings."

Laito quirked his lips up. "Well...I didn't know you were Eve. I thought you were just a sacrificial bride, and one not to survive. We had no idea...that you were back. Of course I wouldn't have shared how I felt. Even after you survived the awakening, and we all wanted to lay claim to you, it was hard to tell you how I felt."

"I can understand that. Now that I am back, it seems that you are your brothers are more open and honest with me."

"Of course. We have you back now. I'm pleased that we have you back, not only the Yui that I lost, but also the most precious person I had...Eve."

Yui pulled Laito closer and pressed her lips to his. Laito let out a low hum as he slipped his tongue in her mouth. He pulled her closer and wrapped his arms around her. "Be with me, Yui." He whispered. "I want to be connected to you."

Yui let out a soft gasp as Laito ran his hands up her thigh going higher under her skirt. She didn't answer, instead she relaxed into him and kissed him deeper. She raised her hands and slipped his blazer of his shoulders, and started to unbutton his shirt slowly as they continued to kiss, shoving his shirt to the side after.

Laito pulled her from the bed and undressed her slowly, planting soft kisses on her exposed skin, a silent apology for everything harsh thing he had ever done to her. When Yui stood before him completely bare he lowered her back onto the bed and pulled her up to the middle, and hovered over her. "Let me love you."

Yui let out a soft gasp and grasped Laito's hair as he took her breast into his mouth. She squirmed as he pulled her closer to him and he let out a groan. "You taste so good." He kissed his way down lower and stopped at her abdomen and kissed it gently. He looked up at her and smirked as he lowered his head to her inner thigh and bit. His hands rested on her thighs and held her still as she tried to squirm under his ministrations.

He looked up the length of her body and chuckled at her flushed look. "Now for something I have dreamed about." He nuzzled his face at her core and inhaled deeply. His tongue flicked out and teased the bundle of nerves at her core. "Taste better than I thought." He groaned as he lowered his face closer. He grasped her thighs and continued to stroke his tongue against her making Yui take a shuttering breath.

Yui tugged at his hair and tried to wiggle her hips, she could feel herself building, and her breath came out in pants as Laito slipped his fingers inside her as his tongue danced across her swollen nub. She tilted her head back and closed her eyes, trying to hold on for dear life. Never had she felt anything like this before. "L-laito. Ngnn. I..." She couldn't even think straight. He kept rubbing a particular spot inside her, making her jerk slightly.

"Let go, Yui." He whispered seductively at her. "I want to make you come undone under my touch."

Yui stiffened slightly as her orgasm came rippling across her. She pulled his hair tighter and called out his name quietly as she clenched her teeth trying to hold onto her body, she thought she would shoot through the roof at any moment.

Laito kissed his way up her body and with his other hand undid his belt, and pulled the button of his pants. He pulled them off with his boxer swiftly as he pressed his lips to hers, and nestled between her legs. "I think you are ready for me, I will take your body to even higher places now." He whispered into her ear as he pressed his length into her wet folds.

He grunted as he sheathed himself into her warm, and felt her walls tighten around him. He slowly rocked into her and kissed her neck. He laced his fingers with hers and pulled them above her head, and bit her neck and thrust slightly harder. "Squeeze my hands if it is too much." He panted. "I want to go harder."

Yui squeezed his hands tightly after Laito began to slow his thrusts after a time. She wrapped her legs around his waist. "I want harder." She mewled.

Laito chuckled and began to thrust harder into her. "You like that, Bitch-chan?" He grunted. "Do you want harder still?"

"Y-yes." She gasped.

"Greedy little thing." He giggled. "I will make it where you can't walk."

He pulled her up into his arms and let go of her hands. He grasped her hips and guided her body to a fast past. He lowered his head and suckled one of her breast hard as he continued his harder rhythm with her. "Hold on to me." He panted as he shifted his hips. Yui wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled him closer to her and tugged his hair.

She lowered her head and bit his shoulder and Laito let out a loud moan. "Bit me harder." He hissed.

Yui tightened her jaw as she was brought closer to her goal. She began to to see stars as Laito hit something deep within her, and continued to hit it at a brutal pace. She whimpered slightly, as she felt her second orgasm build and Laito bit into her roughly as she was tipped over the edge with him. She moved her hands to his back and ran her blunt nails across his back, trying to pull him as close as she could.

"Nggnnnn, Yui." Laito gasped as he let go of her shoulder. He continued to rock her against him as they both shivered against each other. The bond that was being knit with Yui was powerful, and he thought he might loose himself if he didn't hold onto her tightly. He bit her neck and rubbed her back as he fed from her. He felt her lips against his shoulder, and heard a light whimper from his bride.

His slowed his movements and tried to catch his breath. He felt Yui's small form shiver against him and he let out a low sigh and kissed her neck softly. "Mine." He whispered. "You are now mine for eternity."

Yui panted lightly in his hold, trying to regain her emotional balance. She had not expected the powerful connection when she did the ritual with each of the brothers. With each one, she almost felt as if she was one with them. She let out a little sob and Laito shifted her away from him and looked at her face, concerned etched across his features.

"Did I hurt you?" He whispered.

Yui shook her head and wiped the tears from her eyes. "I just love you." She croaked out.

Laito smiled softly at her and kissed her slowly as he held her against him. He made butterfly kisses down her neck and across her face. "I love you, too, Bitch-chan."

Yui chuckled and shook her head. She supposed he would always call her that. It really didn't bother her any more. He lowered her down to the bed and caressed her abdomen lightly. "Are you sure you are okay?"

"I am. Thank you, Laito." Yui gave him a soft peck on his cheek. Her stomach growled loudly and she blushed.

Laito giggled as he pulled her up. "Let's get you dressed so I can get you properly fed. I'm sure our little ones are hungry, too." Laito picked up her clothes and dressed her while he kept kissing her skin as he covered her. He loved the taste of her skin, and the warmth of her petite frame. He was relieved now that he was bonded with Yui. Now she would be his forever. He couldn't wait for their future together, her warm, soft body yielding to his touch today was something he always dreamed about, and now he could have his Yui by his side, never to leave him again.

Chapter Text

Yui sat stiffly in the garden on one of the long wooden benches between her sister Petra, and the guest her brought with her. Petra had told her that someone wanted to see her again, and she had not expected to see who she had brought with her. Kino. He was one of Karlheinz's 'son', and always had a bit of a temper on him. For that reason his father had banned him to the demon world. She always tried to be kind to him whenever she encountered him, even though he hated vampires, which was odd to Yui because Kino was a vampire himself.

Kino sat quietly next to her, his eyes searching hers as he sipped his Guava juice. He had a small smirk playing on his lips as he looked at her. Yui tried to advert her gaze, but she could feel him looking at her.

"W-what brings you here, Kino?" Yui asked quietly.

Kino sat his drink to the side and shifted closer to Yui and wrapped an arm around her and nuzzled her neck. "Can't I just come see you? I heard in the demon world that you had returned, Eve. I had to see for myself." He said in a low tone.

"I-I see." She tried to shift away, but Kino adjusted his grip on her and chuckled.

Yui looked at Petra with wide eyes, and Petra just grinned at her. "Kino was excited to hear that you were alive, Yui, so uncle granted him a temporary pass from the demon world to come visit. He is returning back tonight." Yui nodded and turned her gaze forward, her hands clenched in her lap.

Shu popped behind her and placed his hands on her small shoulders. He glared down at Kino. "I believe you are getting too close to my wife."

Kino lifted his gaze and gave him a lazy smile. "Don't be like that brother, I just wanted to come visit her for a few moments before I left."

Shu wrapped his arms around Yui, and yanked her up into his arms. The rest of the brothers appeared around Yui and watched as Kino stood and tilted his head at them. "I think it's best you leave, Kino. As you can see our bride needs her rest." Shu narrowed his eyes at him.

"Tch, whatever." He gave Yui a cocky smile, and bowed. "I will see you soon, Eve." He nodded at Petra and they quietly made their way back to the waiting limo.

Yui let out her breath and wrapped her arms around Shu's neck. "Thank you." She said quietly.

"Oi. Did you hurt you?" Ayato appeared next to her with furrowed brows.

"N-no. He just was...he just...no, he didn't." Yui stammered.

Shu let out a sigh. "He was holding her."

Ayato and the others let out a low growl as they looked at her. She let out a small squeak and held onto Shu tighter. Ayato shifted forward and held out his arms. "Give her to me, it's my night. I will make sure she gets the stink off her."

Shu pursed his lips for a moment and nodded. He gave him a warning look before Ayato popped out of sight with Yui securely in his arms.

Ayato strode with purpose towards the bathroom and lightly kicked the door open. He sat Yui down on one of the chairs and stepped to the tub and started to fill it. He made his way back to her and knelt in front of her. He tugged at her shirt and Yui pulled away. "I-I can do it." She blushed.

Ayato ran his hands through his hair and sighed. "Yui." He looked at her. "Why are you avoiding me? You don't know how much..." He swallowed the dryness in his throat. "How much I need you." He looked away and closed his eyes. "Please try to have a little trust. I will NOT hurt you."

Yui looked at him with wide eyes and her heart clenched as she remembered all the times she did have with him in the past. They were extremely close, and she trusted him. She also knew he was aware of who she was, and they shared those memories together.

Ayato looked back at her and placed his hands on the counter behind him, his arms on either side of her. "Please let me take care of you. If you don't wish to bond with me tonight, I understand. I will wait until you are ready. I just want to take care of you...please."

Yui's lips parted and slowly nodded. "O-okay."

Ayato gave her his signature smirk and started to slowly undress her. He could feel her tremble under his touch and he pursed his lips as he lifted her nude form and placed her gently in the tub. He turned off the water and grabbed a cloth and started to wash her shoulders and back slowly. "Could I join you?" He whispered. He was getting flustered looking at her smooth skin, he just wanted to be closer to her.

Yui cleared her throat and looked over her shoulder at him. "Yes." She said softly. She was trying to work on the trust. She was now bonded to the others, and they would feel her distress if anything went wrong with her, and Ayato. It wasn't fair that she feared him the most, for they all broke that trust. She should stop punishing him.

Yui relaxed slightly when he settled behind her and pulled her flush against his chest. She could feel his erection pressed against her back making her shiver slightly. He planted soft kisses on her shoulder and made lazy patterns on her swollen abdomen. "Yui." He whispered. He continued to kiss her neck and shoulders as one of his hands drifted higher, and gently caressed her breast making her stiffen slightly. He stilled his movement and started the process again slowly.

She swallowed her fear and relaxed to his touch and leaned her head further back against his chest. Ayato let out a contented hum as his other hand searched slightly lower and brushed against her core. Yui arched her back slightly when he added pressure.

He worked her core, and eventually Yui began to shift her hips slightly. He smirked against her skin and pressed a kiss to her neck, suckling the skin, making a small bruise. He grasped her hips and adjusted her so she was facing him. He leaned up and captured her lips. He let out a soft moan against her lips as he slipped his tongue into her mouth. She tasted even better than she smelled.

Grasping her hips he pulled her closer and lower to him. He wanted to feel her pressed against him. Yui whimpered slightly when his length brushed against her. "Is this okay, Yui?" He whispered against her mouth.

She didn't answer, instead she wrapped her arms around his neck and shifted closer to him. He pressed her down onto him slowly and let out a low moan when he filled her to the hilt. He paused for a moment and lightly bit her tongue.

He let out a low growl when she returned the favor in kind, and sucked his tongue into his mouth in a slow motion, gently tugging it. He began to rock them slowly, helping set a slowly rhythm. He felt her wet body slid against his, and he gasped at the pleasure that rocketed through him. For so long he wanted this connection with her, not forced, but to be together mutually.

He leaned his head back and gasped as he picked up the pace, and Yui grabbed the sides of the tub and helped him go faster, the water splashing onto the floor, creating a small whirlpool as they moved. He leaned forward and bit her breast gently, pulling it into his mouth, he could taste her sweet blood on his tongue as he continued to thrust faster.

"Ngnn, Ayatooo." Yui grunted as she moved her hands and pulled his hair tight. She could feel herself building and her squeezed her hips tighter as he was building with her. He could feel her start to shutter and he hissed a version of her name as he bit her shoulder when he came undone under her. Yui bit his neck and let out a soft moan as she gripped him tightly. Her body tensed and he held her closer to him.

Again she felt the bond form, and it was overpowering. She was awash of emotion as she came back from her high with him. She leaned her head on his shoulder as he licked her wound clean. He wrapped his arms more firmly around her and let out a long sigh. "Mine." He croaked out. "You are now mine, Yui. For eternity."

They sat in each others arms for a bit, and the water started to grow cold. He let out a chuckle and pulled back and cupped her cheeks. "Let's get you showered and dressed for bed." He kissed her lips softly and gave her a gentle smile. "I love you, Yui."

Yui leaned her forehead against his and closed her eyes, felling calm and happy. "I love you, too, Ayato. I have for a very long time."

"You will never leave us, Eve. You are now ours as much as we are yours. You shall stay by our side for an eternity as it should have always been."

"Yes, always." She whispered.

Chapter Text

Karl had been following Petra’s movements for the past several months. He was not pleased to learn that she had been going to the demon world frequently. She also had been hovering around Yui for the past several weeks, wanting to spend most of her time with her and trying to get her to go out with her even though Yui was almost due.

He made his way out of the house and to the limo to go check on Yui knowing that Petra was occupied with work at the moment. Petra had assumed that Karl was also at work, however he arrived at work and saw her and told her that he had a lot of experiments to do, and he would be locked up in his office, he would see her at home.

Karl growled as he felt Yui’s fear rip through him. He narrowed his eyes as he launched himself in the air, and flew to his sons house. He knew time was of the essence at this point and needed to get there quickly. He hissed when he felt Yui’s presence vanish suddenly.

He landed lightly on his feet a few minutes later and strolled into the large mansion and came to an abrupt halt. He looked around the room and saw his sons wounded body scattered around the room.

“What happened?” He growled.

Ayato held onto his shoulder that was quickly healing and leaned against the wall. “We were attacked by a pack of wolves.” He grit his teeth. “We all got separated, thinking that someone was with Yui.” He clenched his fists and slid up the wall and staggered as he tried to stand.

“Where is she?” Karl hissed.

“Gone.” Laito croaked out from behind the couch. “There was too many of them.”

“Who? Who took her?” Karl paced around the room and checked on each of his sons conditions.

“Petra was with them.” Shu grit his teeth. “She, Kino and two others I didn’t recognize.”

Karl pulled out his phone and placed a quick call. He needed his sons to heal quickly, so they could follow Yui’s trail. He had an idea where they had taken her, and they would all need their strength to travel into the demon world. He speak in a quick tone and hung up.

“I’ve ordered supplies to help you heal. I will be back in an hour.” He turned on his heels and stepped towards the door.

“We need to find Yui.” Ayato called after him.

Karl stopped and looked at his son. “We will. I need to make arrangements for travel. Be ready to leave when I return.” Karl quickened his pace as he left. He knew it was vitally important to get to the demon world quickly. Time flowed there differently then it did in the human world. Yui had been gone less than twenty minutes, but in the demon world things were much slower. You could spend time in the demon world for a month, and come back to the human world, and several years have already passed.

Yui groaned feeling her body ache all over. Her mind felt cloudy and she tried to remember what day it was. She blinked her eyes open and looked around the room. Her eyes widened when her brain started its synapses and she remembered what had happened.

The wolves.

Yui leaned her back against Shu’s chest while they laid on the couch in the great room. His hands made lazy patterns on her swollen abdomen. She was eight months pregnant, and her adopted uncle, Karlheinz was coming tomorrow to deliver the children.

She turned her head and looked at the others that had gathered around the room, looking at her. “I’m fine.” She chuckled. “Really. You all look so worried.”

“We know you are uncomfortable. We can feel it, Yui.” Ayato grumbled as he crossed his arms. “You can’t lie to us, remember?”

“I-I’m not lying!” She gasped. “I am fine. The babies are just really active tonight.”

The others settled closer to her and each laid a hand on her abdomen and smiled. They could feel the babies kick and watched with fascination as one of them pressed their tiny foot out against her, and could make it out.

“Do you need anything for pain?” Reiji asked, looking up at her.

“No. I will be alright for awhile longer.”

A huge crash was heard, and then growling as several wolves paced forward, coming in through the windows. Yui let out a shriek as she was moved quickly to the corner of the room, and her mates spread out in front of her, guarding her.

She watched in horror as the wolves started to tear at them. She cried out in fear and tried to go to them when someone scooped her up in their arms.

“Petra.” She cried. “We need to help them!”

Petra shook her head as she nodded at Kino, and two others who were near her. “We need to get you to safety. Once you are safe, we will come back and help. I may need help protecting you.”

Petra and the others rushed through the forest until they reached a clearing. Yui saw a dark red portal pulsing quickly in the center of the field and furrowed her brows. Petra slowed her pace and turned her head as the wolves came padding behind them.

“Petra!” Yui tried to warn her sister.

Petra looked down at her sister and kissed her forehead tenderly and smiled. “I’m sorry, Yui. This is for your own good.”

“Wha-” Yui tried to ask when she felt a sharp pinch in her neck.

Yui trembled as she looked down at her now flat abdomen. “No!” She screamed. She jumped off the bed and staggered slightly and fell to her knees.

The door slammed open and Petra rushed in to Yui’s side, followed by a tall man with long black hair and the same color eyes as Yui. “Yui.” Petra gasped as she picked Yui up. “Are you okay?”

Yui stiffened and squirmed in her sister’s hold. “No! Where are my children. Where are the others?” She gasped.

Petra held her closer and placed her on the bed. The man stepped forward and settled next to Yui and looked down at her and smiled. Petra looked at the man and back at her sister. “Calm down, Yui. The babies are all fine. You went into labor when we went through the portal.” She placed her hands on her shoulders and gave them a gentle squeeze. “I promise they are all well and healthy, I will bring you to see them in a moment. Let me explain a few things first.”

Yui stopped squirming and looked at Petra. “Why? Why am I here?”

Petra sighed and nodded at the man. He shifted closer and pulled Yui to him. “Yui. It is my fault. I demanded you be brought here.” He looked down at her and frowned slightly. “When Petra came back with Kino, That was the first time I had seen her in years. She told me what Karlheinz had done, and what his sons did to you.”

“W-who are you?” She looked up at him.

He cupped her cheek and pressed a soft kiss to her forehead. “I’m your father, Yui. My name is Kragen Bettencourt.” He sighed and pulled her closer. “When you were born, I was told that your uncle had his brother Richter try to kill me shortly after your mother passed. To this day I believe it was Richter that killed her, too. She should have survived.”

Yui sat in stunned silence as her father continued to speak. He looked at one of the walls as he continued to speak. “I tried to take you, and your sister with me in fear that they would try to kill you as well. I managed to escape and went into hiding with the help of some very close friends, Shin and Carla Tsukinami. It was due to them and that I escaped without Richter seeking me out to end my life. When I was able to make my way back to you, and your sister, you both were already gone to the human realm.”

He looked at Petra and gave a sad smile. “I finally was able to make contact with your sister and she informed me what was happening. She had no idea that Richter tried to kill me, and that was why I suddenly left. She was told that I was grief stricken by loosing your mother, and I wanted nothing to do with you or her. When I left, Karlheinz decided to take you both in permanently. After several years of you living in the demon world, Karl went to Petra and told her of his plan to create a new race.”

Petra grabbed one of Yui’s hands. “Kino, over the years overheard several things in regards to you. He told us how you have one of the founders hearts in your body.” Yui nodded. She had known that. “He also said that Karlheinz had planned this the whole time since you were conceived. He wanted to use you to create a new hybrid race of vampires, which he told me several years after you were born, but I didn’t know he had planned on killing father and keeping you from the beginning.”

Yui bowed her head and clenched her fists. “Did the others know?” She whispered.

“No. He used them, too.” She paused. “However, you are bound to them now, and you and I both know they would do anything their father asked because he is the king. Their best interest is to do as he says. I couldn’t risk letting them know.”

Yui looked up and took her free hand and wiped the tears from her eyes. “At least there is that.” She sniffed.

“Would you like to see your children now?” Petra grinned at her. “We have more to discuss, but for now let’s get you better.”

Chapter Text

Karl had been following Petra’s movements for the past several months. He was not pleased to learn that she had been going to the demon world frequently. She also had been hovering around Yui for the past several weeks, wanting to spend most of her time with her and trying to get her to go out with her even though Yui was almost due.

He made his way out of the house and to the limo to go check on Yui knowing that Petra was occupied with work at the moment. Petra had assumed that Karl was also at work, however when he had arrived at work and saw her, he told her that he had a lot of experiments to do, and he would be locked up in his office, he would see her at home. He left soon after to return home.

Karl growled as he felt Yui’s fear rip through him. He narrowed his eyes as he launched himself in the air, and flew to his sons house. He knew time was of the essence at this point and needed to get there quickly. He hissed when he felt Yui’s presence vanish suddenly.

He landed lightly on his feet a few minutes later and strolled into the large mansion and came to an abrupt halt. He looked around the room and saw his sons wounded bodies scattered around the room.

“What happened?” He growled.

Ayato held onto his shoulder that was quickly healing and leaned against the wall. “We were attacked by a pack of wolves.” He grit his teeth. “We all got separated, thinking that someone was with Yui.” He clenched his fists and slid up the wall and staggered as he tried to stand.

“Where is she?” Karl hissed.

“Gone.” Laito croaked out from behind the couch. “There was too many of them.”

“Who? Who took her?” Karl paced around the room and checked on each of his sons conditions.

“Petra was with them.” Shu grit his teeth. “She, Kino and two others I didn’t recognize.”

Karl pulled out his phone and placed a quick call. He needed his sons to heal quickly, so they could follow Yui’s trail. He had an idea where they had taken her, and they would all need their strength to travel into the demon world. He speak in a quick tone and hung up.

“I’ve ordered supplies to help you heal. I will be back in an hour.” He turned on his heels and stepped towards the door.

“We need to find Yui.” Ayato called after him.

Karl stopped and looked at his son. “We will. I need to make arrangements for travel. Be ready to leave when I return.” Karl quickened his pace as he left. He knew it was vitally important to get to the demon world quickly. Time flowed there differently then it did in the human world. Yui had been gone less than twenty minutes, but in the demon world things were much faster. He was worried what it would do to her body passing through the portal while pregnant.

 

Yui groaned feeling her body ache all over. Her mind felt cloudy and she tried to remember what day it was. She blinked her eyes open and looked around the room. Her eyes widened when her brain started its synapses and she remembered what had happened.

The wolves.

Yui leaned her back against Shu’s chest while they laid on the couch in the great room. His hands made lazy patterns on her swollen abdomen. She was eight months pregnant, and her adopted uncle, Karlheinz was coming tomorrow to deliver the children.

She turned her head and looked at the others that had gathered around the room, looking at her. “I’m fine.” She chuckled. “Really. You all look so worried.”

“We know you are uncomfortable. We can feel it, Yui.” Ayato grumbled as he crossed his arms. “You can’t lie to us, remember?”

“I-I’m not lying!” She gasped. “I am fine. The babies are just really active tonight.”

The others settled closer to her and each laid a hand on her abdomen and smiled. They could feel the babies kick and watched with fascination as one of them pressed their tiny foot out against her, and could make it out.

“Do you need anything for pain?” Reiji asked, looking up at her.

“No. I will be alright for awhile longer.”

A huge crash was heard, and then growling as several wolves paced forward, coming in through the windows. Yui let out a shriek as she was moved quickly to the corner of the room, and her mates spread out in front of her, guarding her.

She watched in horror as the wolves started to tear at them. She cried out in fear and tried to go to them when someone scooped her up in their arms.

“Petra.” She cried. “We need to help them!”

Petra shook her head as she nodded at Kino, and two others who were near her. “We need to get you to safety. Once you are safe, we will come back and help. I may need help protecting you.”

Petra and the others rushed through the forest until they reached a clearing. Yui saw a dark red portal pulsing quickly in the center of the field and furrowed her brows. Petra slowed her pace and turned her head as the wolves came padding behind them.

“Petra!” Yui tried to warn her sister.

Petra looked down at her sister and kissed her forehead tenderly and smiled. “I’m sorry, Yui. This is for your own good.”

“Wha-” Yui tried to ask when she felt a sharp pinch in her neck.

Yui trembled as she looked down at her now flat abdomen. “No!” She screamed. She jumped off the bed and staggered slightly and fell to her knees.

The door slammed open and Petra rushed in to Yui’s side, followed by a tall man with long black hair and the same color eyes as Yui. “Yui.” Petra gasped as she picked Yui up. “Are you okay?”

Yui stiffened and squirmed in her sister’s hold. “No! Where are my children. Where are the others?” She gasped.

Petra held her closer and placed her on the bed. The man stepped forward and settled next to Yui and looked down at her and smiled. Petra looked at the man and back at her sister. “Calm down, Yui. The babies are all fine. You went into labor when we went through the portal.” She placed her hands on her shoulders and gave them a gentle squeeze. “I promise they are all well and healthy, I will bring you to see them in a moment. Let me explain a few things first.”

Yui stopped squirming and looked at Petra. “Why? Why am I here?”

Petra sighed and nodded at the man. He shifted closer and pulled Yui to him. “Yui. It is my fault. I demanded you be brought here.” He looked down at her and frowned slightly. “When Petra came back with Kino, That was the first time I had seen her in years. She told me what Karlheinz had done, and what his sons did to you.”

“W-who are you?” She looked up at him.

He cupped her cheek and pressed a soft kiss to her forehead. “I’m your father, Yui. My name is Kragen Bettencourt.” He sighed and pulled her closer. “When you were born, I was told that your uncle was sending had his brother Richter try to kill me shortly after your mother passed. To this day I believe it was Richter that killed her, too. She should have survived.”

Yui sat in stunned silence as her father continued to speak. He looked at one of the walls as he continued to speak. “I tried to take you, and your sister with me in fear that they would try to kill you as well. I managed to escape and went into hiding with the help of some very close friends, Shin and Carla Tsukinami. It was due to them and that I escaped without Richter seeking me out to end my life. When I was able to make my way back to you, and your sister, you both were already gone to the human realm.”

He looked at Petra and gave a sad smile. “I finally was able to make contact with your sister and she informed me what was happening. She had no idea that Richter tried to kill me, and that was why I suddenly left. She was told that I was grief stricken by loosing your mother, and I wanted nothing to do with you or her. When I left, Karlheinz decided to take you both in permanently. After several years of you living in the demon world, Karl went to Petra and told her of his plan to create a new race.”

Petra grabbed one of Yui’s hands. “Kino, over the years overheard several things in regards to you. He told us how you have one of the founders hearts in your body.” Yui nodded. She had known that. “He also said that Karlheinz had planned this the whole time since you were conceived. He wanted to use you to create a new hybrid race of vampires, which he told me several years after you were born, but I didn’t know he had planned on killing father and keeping you from the beginning.”

Yui bowed her head and clenched her fists. “Did the others know?” She whispered.

“No. He used them, too.” She paused. “However, you are bound to them now, and you and I both know they would do anything their father asked because he is the king. Their best interest is to do as he says. I couldn’t risk letting them know.”

Yui looked up and took her free hand and wiped the tears from her eyes. “At least there is that.” She sniffed.

“Would you like to see your children now?” Petra grinned at her. “We have more to discuss, but for now let’s get you better.”

Chapter Text

Yui let out soft sigh as she watched her children play in the gardens. Her heart ached painfully thinking about their fathers. She had been here for almost five years now with no sign of her mates. Petra explained to her when she saw her children for the first time that time flows differently in the demon world. She was only unconscious for two weeks in human world terms, but when she saw her children for the first time, they were already walking and talking, that to them she was unconscious for almost three years. She tried to figure out how long she had been there in the human world terms. She could only guess it was over a month. 'Maybe they don't know where I am.' She was determined to find a way back to them.

Of course her children knew who she was immediately. Apparently Petra and her father would bring them in to see Yui on a daily basis and tell them stories about her. Petra had given each of her children the names she had picked out for them and she was lucky that she discussed it with her before she went into labor.

Yui sadly didn't trust her sister any longer, and tried her best to hid her anger. She felt like she betrayed Karlheinz, and her mates. She should have come to her to let her know instead of deciding things for her, now she was stuck in the demon world and had no idea where the portal was, or how to get there.

"Mum." Her son, Aoi came running up to her pulling her out of her musings. She smiled gently at him and swallowed the lump in her throat. Aoi was Shu's son, she was sure. He was one of three identical triplets that looked exactly like Shu, with the exception of the hair color was slightly lighter. They had Yui's small ears. To her it was a beautiful combination. Their eyes the same exact sparkling blue like Shu's.

Shu's had three sons. Aoi, Diachi, and Shoji.

Reiji had a daughter named Rira. She had had red eyes like her father, and dark hair with purple tints that ran throughout. She had a light curls to her hair like Yui's. She had long hair as well. and it was beautiful, and thick.

Laito had a son as well named Jin. At first she couldn't tell, however when she noted a beauty mark on her son's right cheek, and the shape of his eyes, it was easy to tell. He had red hair like Laito, however his eyes looked just like Laito's and Yui's. The outer part was a stunning green, but gradually turned a dark pink as you go close to the iris.

Subaru's daughter, Momoko had fair hair like her father. Her eyes were a dark pink in color. Her hair was straight like her father's. She had a quiet disposition like Yui. She liked to keep her hair slightly shorter than her Rira's.

Ayato's son, Wataru had light red hair, and stunning green eyes. His hair was slightly lighter than Jin's hair.

Kanato's daughter, Anbi had light purple hair, even lighter than Kanato's. She had one pink eye, and one purple which were wide like her mother's. Her hair was straight, and she liked it to be shoulder length.

Each of her children she could see parts of herself as well. Looking at them was difficult some days. It made the ache in her chest stronger thinking of their missing fathers. She promised herself that soon, she would find a way to get back to them. She just had to. She had told all of her children about their fathers, and what they were like. She wanted them to love, and trust them if...no when they came for them. She would not believe that they would leave her here.

Yui placed her five year old on her lap and nuzzled his neck. "Getting tired?" She murmured.

He leaned his head against her shoulder and giggled. "Of course not." He grabbed her wrist and held it lightly. "I wanted to come say hi."

Yui kissed his cheek and held him tight. "Thank you, Aoi. You are such a sweet boy."

Aoi squirmed on her lap and jumped down. "Love you, mum." He ran off to join his other siblings who were scattered around the garden playing tag. Yui smiled softly at them as they continued to laugh, and run.

Yui gave a light gasp when hands squeezed her shoulders lightly. "Yui." Yui turned and saw Carla standing behind her with a small smirk on his face.

"Carla." She whispered. There was something about Carla, and his brother Shin that she didn't trust. They tended to make her uneasy. They would frequently come to her father's estate and try to spend time with her, and her children. "What brings you here today?" She said slightly louder as Carla walked around the bench and sat next to her.

Carla's eyes followed the children as they played. It made Yui feel uneasy. "I came to see you of course." He said lightly.

"I see." Yui looked back at her children as she sat next to him.

"Your children will be powerful when they get older." Carla said suddenly. "They have founders blood racing in their veins."

Yui furrowed her brows and looked at Carla. She chewed her bottom lip trying to decipher what he meant by that. She hoped that she would be long gone before they were fully grown, and they would be if she had anything to do with it. She had finally gained her strength back.

"Yui." Petra called as she walked up to her hand in hand with Kino. "Father wishes to see you for a moment." She smiled at her.

Yui took a deep breath and nodded. She looked from Carla and then back to Petra. Petra smiled softly at her and gave her a reassuring smile. "I will take the children inside and get them dinner."

"Thank you, Petra." Yui stood and bowed to Carla. "Thank you for coming to visit Carla." She looked back once more at her children as Petra gathered them together to go inside. Once satisfied Petra was leading them towards the other part of the estate to the kitchen, she headed towards the estate to meet with her father.

Kino sat on the bench and smirked at Carla. "When are you going to finally claim Yui as your own? Isn't that the reason we brought her here."

Carla growled as he looked at him. "I needed to wait for her to heal before I start to purify her and take her as my mate. That process took time. I will be taking her soon for her blood is almost clean."

Shin appeared from behind one of the shrubs and folded his arms across his chest. "We need to move soon. You know they will come for her. We should have killed them when we had the chance."

Carla nodded slowly. "Yes, they will. With any luck I will be able to turn her completely into a vampire, and have her bound tightly to me. As her maker and mate, she could never turn against me, and follow my every command."

Kino chuckled and leaned his head back and let out a sigh. "Whatever. I don't care what you do. I got Petra out of the bargain. I filled her head with so many lies about my father that she believes me when I told her he wanted her father dead. I didn't count on having to wait so long to get her though. If I couldn't have Yui, she is second best." He shrugged.

Carla made a sound of disgust in the back of his throat as he looked at Kino. "We had to wait to get the portal open first of all, and second we have to find our Eve, without her the plan was moot now wasn't it."

Kino rolled his eyes and stood. "Whatever. I am going back to Petra." He strode off making his way back to the estate.

"What are we going to do with her spawn with the Sakamaki's?" Shin inquired.

"When I finally bind her to me..." He let out a dark chuckle. "I will make her get rid of them herself by killing every single one of them before they can gain powers to go against us."

Chapter Text

Karlheinz narrowed his eyes as he watched Carla speak to Yui. He had come here to check on the situation. He had reversed time several times already, and each time they would loose someone. Most of the time it would be Yui. He needed to pick out a different point in time to attack them, destroy them and take his family back to the human world.

Yui stepped back into the estate as Petra gathered his grandchildren and went back as well. He listened to the conversation that Kino had with the Tsukinami brothers. He was furious that Kino had any part of this. He had not planned on killing Yui's father or mother when she was born, even though she was part of the plan for a new race.

There was nothing to be done about that now. His main concern now was to get Yui, and his grandchildren back to the human world and reseal the portal.

He didn't relish the idea of having to destroy Carla, and Shin but there was no other choice. They would keep coming for Yui. Even if he did seal the portal, they would find a way to unseal it again. They had to die.

"What are we going to do with her spawn with the Sakamaki's?" Shin inquired.

"When I finally bind her to me..." Carla let out a dark chuckle. "I will make her get rid of them herself by killing every single one of them before they can gain powers to go against us."

Karl vanished and went back to his palace. He had erected a shield around it, so the appearance of the palace would look like there was no one there. He paced into the grand meeting room where the others were gathered around the long table.

Shu looked up and stood. "Well?" He clenched his fists. "When can we get them back?"

Karl sat at the head of the table and nodded back. "We will make our move soon. The children are fine right now, and so is Yui. The Tsukinami brothers want to bind her to Carla. He wants to turn her, and bind her to him."

The Sakamaki brothers hissed. Karl raised his hand. "We will need to bring the swords with us that will destroy them. Now that I know the reason behind this, they have to die."

"What about Petra?" Subaru asked.

"Sadly she believes everything that Kino said. He did it to get her as an award, even though he actually wanted Yui for himself. She will have to stay here in the demon world, or...die. I can not chance her trying to take Yui from us."

"I agree." Reiji crossed his arms over his chest and looked around the table. "We need to get our mate back, and our children. I don't care about anyone else there."

Karl chuckled. "I do not wish to bend time again, let's get to her and get them back." with that he stood up and made his way to the far wall and pulled one of the swords that hung there, down. "Make sure you have one with you, and cut their heads off."

Kanato giggled as he stood. "Do you hear that Teddy, we get to kill everyone that harmed Yui."

Everything had happened so quickly. Carla, and Shin had come over to 'visit' as they usually did. She stepped outside of the estate trying to get away from them, and brought her children outside to play in the gardens. She had just sat down on the bench when she was being lifted in the air, and a hand over her mouth.

Carla had dragged her squirming body with him into the shadows, away from her children, leaving a smirking Shin looking after them. That's when she heard her sister scream. Carla had slammed her to the ground. "I have already killed your father, and my brother is taking care of your sister, and Kino." He sneered. "You will be mine, my creation." He chuckled. "We will keep the children alive...for now. When I make you mine, I will enjoy watching as I command you to kill your own flesh, and blood."

"N-no!" Yui pushed Carla but he didn't budge.

"It was easy to convince your sister that Karl was the one who wanted you from the beginning, and wanted your father dead." He licked her neck. "I was the one who killed your mother. It was I who told your father that Karl wanted him dead making him leave you unprotected." He tightened his hold. "That was until Karlheinz decided to keep you, and Petra under his care." He said through his teeth.

Yui let out a breathless scream as Carla bit into her neck harshly. She grit her teeth and squirmed under his hold, trying to free herself. "Hold still, woman." He growled. "You will submit to me." He leaned forward and bit deeper, shaking his head, tearing her skin open.

Yui fumbled for the knife she always carried with her with shaking hands. It was like the one that Subaru had given her years ago. She had come across it in her father's estate, and asked her father about it. He told her it was the only thing to kill a vampire, and she should be careful with it.

Her hand curled around the handle of the blade and she pulled it to her chest as Carla continued to attack her neck. Yui cried out in pain as he bit a different area on her neck. "Submit to me and I will make this pleasurable for you." He hummed against her neck.

"N-never." She gasped. "I will never submit to you!"

Carla smirked down at her as he pulled back and looked at her. Yui took her chance and plunged the knife into his chest. Her arms fell weakly to her side. She had lost a lot of blood, and felt the darkness calling to her. She tried to stay awake so she could save her children.

Carla leaned back further and looked down at the knife that stuck out of his chest and chuckled. He grasped the handle and pulled it out with ease, and tossed it to the side. He let out a sigh and shook his head. "That was very stupid of you. Only a special sword can kill firstborn vampires, and you have to cut off their heads."

"That won't be a problem." Someone hissed near them. Yui closed her eyes slowly, and felt warm drops on her skin, and darkness claimed her.

Reiji held Carla's head in one of his hands, and the sword in the other. He kicked his body off his mates and knelt next to her. "Yui." He looked down and saw she had severe wounds in her neck, and the blood was flowing freely at an alarming rate.

He took his hands and pressed them to her wounds and looked around for help. His father, and Shu soon appeared next to him, looking down at Yui who was having a hard time breathing. "We need to help her, she is dying." He hissed.

Karlheinz nodded and looked at Shu. "I need you to pick her up and when we appear in Reiji's study, start feeding her. Reiji I need you to keep your hands there, and apply pressure. I have already sent the others ahead."

Shu gathered Yui to him, and Reiji stood close, keeping his hands on her wounds. "We need to hurry." Reiji growled. "Her heartbeat is slowing, and faltering."

Karl stood closer to his sons, and Yui and ported them into Reiji's study where the others were waiting with the children.

"Mum!" Aoi screamed and rushed forward to her.

Shu laid her down on the table and started biting into his wrist. He drank from the wound and pressed his lips to Yui's, pouring his life essence in her mouth. Reiji pressed his hand to one of the wounds, while trying to lick the other to help it heal faster.

Aoi stood next to his mother, and his lip trembled. "Mum." He said softly. "You need to wake up."

Karl placed a hand on Aoi's shoulder and nodded. "I need you to be brave right now. We will save your mother, but we need you to stay over there so we can save her." He nodded at the young boy, and Aoi frowned slightly and made his way back to his crying siblings.

"Kanato, take the children to Yui's room, but you can leave the door open so we can hear them. Come back immediately when you are done. There is no time to waste." Karl started to removed Yui's shirt, by tearing them away from her body. "The rest of you, get over here."

Everyone gathered around Yui's body on all sides, and Kanato finally joined them. "We have to turn her." Karl said as he placed bandages on her wounds. "I need each of you to bite and this time pump your venom into her system. It will heal the wounds. She has already lost too much blood, either we turn her, or she dies."

Karl watched as each of his sons bit gently into Yui not wanting to cause her pain. He continued to work on her open wounds by licking them clean. When the venom entered her system, Yui's body arched off the table, and she began to shutter.

They each continued to bit her all over while injecting their venom until Karl told them to stop. "She has stopped bleeding, and I think she has had enough venom now." He said in a low tone. "Each of you need to feed her now. Take turns, it is going to take a bit of blood."

Reiji walked to his desk and grabbed a container. He opened one of his drawers and pulled out a small knife. He stepped back to the table where the others were watching while Ayato started to feed Yui. "Ayato, I have a knife and a container, it will make it faster, and time is important."

Ayato lifted his head from his wrist and grabbed the knife. "Shu, open her mouth." He lifted the knife and cut his arm deeply and the blood flowed quickly from the wound. He placed it over Yui's opened mouth, watched it as she struggled to swallow. Shu rubbed her throat, trying to coax her to swallow faster.

Ayato handed the knife to Reiji as his wound healed, and stepped towards the end of the table, waiting to go again. They each took turned feeding Yui several times in that manner until their father told them to stop. "That's enough, I can hear the change in her heart. It is slowing down, but steady. You can see that her hair if growing longer, and her skin has a different color. Her breathing is better as well."

The brothers let out a sigh of relief as they noted the changes. Reiji cleared this throat, still looking at Yui. "Is is safe that we all injected venom in her?"

Karl smirked. "Of course. She has the heart as a first blood vampire, a vampire father, she will be perfectly fine. She will awaken soon." He tilted his head to the side. "I am interested to see what powers she will have when she does."

Aoi tugged his siblings forward, each of them holding hands as they stepped into the study. "Will mum be alright now?" He asked quietly.

Karl knelt in front of them and smiled. "She will will be better than alright." He let out a little chuckle. "Did your mother talk to you about your fathers?"

They nodded. Shoji stepped forward and looked around at the brothers. "Mum said that she is married to six vampires, and that she loved them very much, and they...they loved us, too."

"Mum told us that you would come for us, and not to be afraid. She described each of you to us." Jin said as he placed his hand on Shoji's shoulder. "Mum is the bravest person I know. She told us we would find a way back to you. She promised us."

Wataru giggled. "Is mum really married to all of you?"

Karl let out a low chuckle. "Yes, she is. In vampire culture it is not uncommon for one to have more than one spouse." He paused for a moment. "I however am not married to her, I am your grandfather."

"She told both of those things." Momoko whispered.

Rira crossed her arms over her chest and tilted her head. "Mum also knew that it was Petra who betrayed her. Is that true?"

Karl pursed his lips. "Yes. However she was lied to by my son, Kino."

"I see." She bowed her head. "Mum told us not to trust anyone other than her while we were there." She lifted her gaze. "She said she had faith in all of you, and that the love she had for you was for an eternity no matter how far they took her away."

"These two mean men, Shin and Carla keep looking at mum strangely, and would come and see her all the time." Anbi sighed. "She told us to stay away from them at all times, she didn't trust them, that she had a bad feeling about them."

"Is mum going to really be okay?" Diachi asked, grasping Aoi's hand.

Karl nodded. "She will be perfect." He pursed his lips for a moment. "Would you like to be introduced to your father's now?"

Diachi nodded. "Mum told us that our father's name is Shu. Aoi, Shoji and I are identical twins." He gave a small smile.

Shu blinked as he saw the miniature versions of himself standing there. There was no doubt in his mind he was their father. "Did she now?" He chuckled. "Why don't you three come with me, and we can get something to eat while your mother rests."

Aoi looked over at his two brothers and shrugged. "Okay...dad."

Rira looked at Karl and smiled. "My father is Reiji."

Reiji smirked as he looked down at his daughter. "It appears you do favor me." He walked forward and clasped her small hand. "Come, let's get you fed."

Wataru walked up to Ayato and Laito and tilted his head. "Mum said that my father was Ayato, and Jin's father was Laito. Which one is which?"

Ayato reached out his hand and placed it on his sons head. Pride filled him as he looked at him. "I'm your...father." He ruffled his hair. "Let's go find the others and eat. It will be some time before your mum wakes."

Wataru grabbed his hand and pulled him forward. "Let's hurry. I want to come back and make sure mum is alright." He looked over his shoulder. "Come on, Jin. Let's go so we can come back."

Jin took a small step forward and looked at Laito, and raised a brow. "You coming?"

Laito giggled. "Of course." He grabbed his son by the hand and followed behind Ayato, and Wataru.

Momoko and Anbi looked at each other and clasped hands and looked at Subaru, and Kanato. They stepped forward and Momoko reached out for Subaru's hand, while Anbi grabbed Kanato.

Kanato smiled at Anbi. "Would you like to go get something sweet?"

Anbi giggled and nodded. Momoko rolled her eyes. "She always likes the sweet stuff." She growled and wrinkled her nose. "Mum limits her intake though." She warned as they made their way out of the room.

Karl stood and walked over to where Yui lay. He lifted his hand and brushed her hair out of her face and let out a soft sigh. "You did well, little one. I'm sorry it took so long to get to you." He kissed her forehead tenderly and stood back. "I promise now that everything will be fine. No one will come and take you from this life."
