The KikuChi/KimChi Chronicles

Chapter Text

Author's Note:
So this story is definitely going to wind up being a series because I've already got like 4 parts done and a fifth one in the works. I know most of you are eager for updates for Gift of a New Life, but that one's my main long story so I want the end result to be as beautiful and as polished as possible. This on the other hand is because some people (they know who they are and I love you guys) on my Hakuoki server planted this seed in my head and now it has come to fruition. I hope you all like it, especially since this seems to be the first work on here for this pairing. Sorry the first chapter's pretty short, but to make up for it I'll post the next chapter tomorrow! That one's kinds short too, but I cant really do much about that. Oh well, cheers guys!

Chizuru had been sneaking around the compound again, even though she knew she wasn’t supposed to, but something made her want to go out and enjoy the cool night air and pale light of the moon. She really had intended on staying near her room, but an odd sound down the hall piqued her interest. Looking around nervously, Chizuru made up her mind go off in search of the mysterious noise.

She tip-toed down the dark empty hall, but couldn’t find anything out of the ordinary. Maybe she had just been hearing things. Suddenly, a hand clamped over her mouth and was dragged into an empty room. The door was swiftly shut, but before she could even process what was happening, she was shoved up against the wall. Chizuru’s entire frame trembled as she felt a sharp blade against her neck and a deadly voice in her ear.

“What business does a girl have with the Shinsengumi? And why is she dressed like a man?” She stiffened when the person, a woman, behind her whispered into her ear, easily deducing her true gender. How had she figured out she was a girl? Was her disguise really that terrible? She heard a soft sigh and the blade was swiftly removed, allowing Chizuru to catch her breath and turn around to face the stranger.

The room was dark, but the soft moonlight that filtered into the room was just enough to illuminate the woman who stood before her. Even though a cowl covered half her face, Chizuru could make out the woman’s features. She was…beautiful.

“Tell me you name, little one. I promise, I will not hurt you.” However beautiful the woman was, Chizuru still knew she was dangerous and it was in her best interest to do whatever she asked. But she knew if she were to get out of this situation unscathed, she would have to take whatever opening she could.

“Y-yukimura Chizuru.”

“Yukimura?” An undecipherable expression marred the woman’s beautiful features and Chizuru took this chance to bolt. She had to get out of there, but her hand barely touched the screen door before she was grabbed again. She tried to scream but the woman had covered her mouth like before and all that came out were her muffled cries as she was dragged back into the darkness. Her arms had been pinned to her side, rendering her struggling useless. She was completely and utterly helpless.

“I can’t have you running off and alerting the Shinsengumi to my presence.” Chizuru frantically shook her head, trying to appease the woman in some way, but it didn’t seem like she would be releasing her anytime soon.

“But I will not hurt you. I would never hurt a girl.”

“However, it is far past your bed time.” The hand over her mouth moved away for only a moment before being replaced with a sweet smelling rag. Chizuru struggled fruitlessly against the woman, but her body was growing heavy. Her eyes began to droop and the last thing she heard before blacking out was the woman’s gentle voice.

“Sleep, little one.”
