He had the urge to vomit, the sick squeeze feelings caused to his stomach were unbearable. Ba-dump Ba-dump his heart was racing, eyes flickering around the infirmary madly. Body hot, tears spilling from eyes. Whole body was shaking from head to toe madly, palms sweating and taking heavy breaths. There was a feeling as if someone was painfully pressing on his neck -- Not killing but just hurting.
I am not okay.
Am I having a heart attack?
I feel empty, my body is...
Please help... Am I dying? All these disturbing thought were impossible to dispose of. The curtain that seperated the bed from rest of the infirmary opened, revealing the raven behind ''Shinya, oi Shinya!'' however blue eyes were opened wide, pupils fidgeting. Guren placed a tablet inside a glass of water, foaming turning into bright red. Grabbing Shinya's forearm, he pulled the younger male up to a sitting position. He was twitching, lower half wet and moreover having an anxiety attack. First Guren put the glass away and had to calm his friend down. Sitting beside the silved haired teen he gently placed his hands on both sides of Shinya's shoulders. An omega, his friend has presented. Guren hadn't yet.
''Shinya, look at me.'' He didn't, Guren cupped his face. It was fifth time this week and it was only Tuesday yet. ''You can get through this, stay in the present and breathe.''
After Guren managed calming Shinya down, freshly presented omega clung to him and panted heavy on him.
''Drink this.'' Guren forced the drink to Shinya, silver only complied. They had gotten rid of his sticky, sweaty disgusting clothes and gave him a shirt, Goshi was generous enough to. Rest of the squad was waiting outside the door for the new omega within them to get over this and come next to them. Teachers had excused Guren only however. Others visited during breaks. There were warm towels everywhere, layer by layer so Shinya's scent didn't remain on the bed permanently. It would be troublesome. The red liquid (actually just some tablet and water but whatever) flowed down from boy's throath to stomach and he heaved over Guren, who laid him back. There were water bottles all around.
''This is horrible...Guren...'' a soft whimper, then Shinya continued wriggling showing how uncomfortable he was, pulling at his own clothes ''I thought I'd be a beta at least...This is disgusting, these pheremones.'' liquid oozing from Shinya's genitals had wetted several of the towels below his bottom. His thighs were trembling. A Hiragi...A Hiragi and Omega never got along well. Hiragi were strongest alphas all across the country. Everyone had acknowledged that already. For Shinya to be an omega was his death sentence.
Mahiru, Guren's girlfriend was also outside. She was also a strong alpha presence as she was a Hiragi, possibly next heir to top it. Ever since she was with Guren, she sticked around with the squad. Up until now only Shinya and Guren were unpresented. Mito was an alpha, Goshi was a beta alongside Shigure and Sayuri was an omega. Guren in fact wouldn't mind being an omega but he was expected to be a beta as strong as an alpha --how stupid those old geezers were. Telling that such beta in their bloodline came once every thousand years while Ichinose only existed barely for half of a thousand. Ichinose were always beta, no exception.
There were cases Guren both let his toys to their fates and then next he would be protective of them. It was hard to tell. Shinya somehow was more interested in nurturing Hiragi's youngest child and daughter Shinoa. Nobody batted an eye though. Because Hiragi's lower branches were alpha/beta but never omega. Guren and Mahiru expected it, never talked to Shinya about it. Shinya was visibly wary and hesistant about Mahiru's presence outside the room with others.
"I talked with Mahiru," Guren said "She will tell the family and will take care of you."
"You will be her mate."
Silence enveloped the whole room. Why why why why why?!
It made sense in a way, Shinya's one part reasoned. But he didn't want to mate with Mahiru... He'd rather mate with-...
"Shinya...he...died..." words fell from Mahiru's bruised lips. Just a few days before then, Guren had presented an alpha, an alpha that alarmed Mahiru's older brother who was a senior and so far the strongest presence. If Guren from Ichinose could alarm such a person, that meant Guren was not a beta as strong as an alpha (Again, how stupid that idea is?) but rather an alpha like a beast. He appeared quite like a softie from appearance though.By the way, Mahiru and Guren had gone through their relationship then, not that a male alpha and female alpha didn't work out. Besides they didn't look forward to having children with each other if they were to be together. But it was that Hiragi and Ichinose couldn't be together.
Back to Shinya's death, there had occured a car accident. Their driver had crashed the car somewhere around their residance. Mahiru was lucky to react faster but Shinya had rolled down the cliff alongside the car, belt had stuck and Mahiru was too late.
Guren remained silent.
Mito remained silent.
Everyone did until Sayuri's sobs echoed in the hospital hall. Mahiru's amber eyes lowered onto the ground as her grip on the serum that was flowing through her with a needle. A hospital attire, bruised body didn't alter her beauty even one bit.
Shinya's funeral was oneto be remembered by anyone that attended. Mahiru was resting on a wheelchair, massive sunglass covering her swollen eyes from crying. Guren was the most silent amongst all. Sayuri was a bawling mess between Mito's chest and Shigure's comforting gestures. Goshi's permanent mischieovus expression had turned out to me temporary. Shinoa was holding Guren and Mahiru's hands tight and crying, crying loudest out of all. She was seven maybe, but she had inherited the brains of Hiragi. Leaders of other clans were also there such as Guren's father Sakae, next to Tenri.
After Shinya's death, Sakae had found a boy named Yuu and adopted him. At first Guren protested, what is this? Are you getting a new pet over a dead pet? was the first thought that occured to him.
Turned out there was more to it however. Yuu was to present as an omega when he grew up. Knowing it, he was kidnapped and parents murdered by his abductors just last month. Human trafficking probably, whoring omegas was a common thing people didn't bat much of an eye at. Behind these were Brotherhood of Thousand night and Hyakuya Church. That info was exclusive to only a few deemed worthy by Hiragi and Ichinose were one of them. All together five houses of Hiragi, Ichinose, Sanguu, Juujou and Goshi interrogated this matter, trying to protect omegas.
That night when car crash happened, those lowlifes were following the car they were in. Probably after Shinya. But Guren knew, knew that it was better for his late friend to be date rather than be placed on either man hunt or bitched.
Yuu snuggled into Guren every night. Sometimes whimpering and crying. Boy seemed to be both physically and emotionally damaged, broken. Sakae would regularly have his check-ups done once a month to see how little kid was doing. "What will happen to me, Guren?" Yuu muttered while his head was buried in older boy's chest, listening his heartbeat.
"What do you mean?"
Instead of an answer Yuu pressed himself closer and whimpered.
The people that had attempted to kidnap Yuichiro, Thousand Nights, were a dangerous organization that had gained support of a Western mafia. Hiragi and they were on equal terms still, because they had developed so much on pharmacy, whole Asia were already dependant on them and their power. Guren didn't know more than that. What he knew was to listen orders and brainstorm over how to be with Mahiru. Yuu was though, damaged because of this and Shinya was dead.
Guren that night, found another ambition. He would help these poor omega. If even ones that were yet to present like Yuu were victims then he would not want anyone else to end that way. The hierarchy in world required omegas to listen others, absolute omegas to suffer. But Guren was different, he was. Ruts were going to be hard to control but he wasnt going to let that stop him. Nobody was to suffer that way.
With a blink of eye, eight years passed and Guren lost everything he had but his ambition...
