Included: Xio, Kiki, Haxlia, Mist and mentions of Umbral, Damaris, Lux, Lupe, and Luca.
She glanced at me with those crimson red eyes as she came outside. The snow was falling from the sky and yet she came out in her dress with no jacket. Nevertheless, something seemed different about her, “Thank you. I saw you dance with Haxlia. Are you having fun tonight?” She said to me.
"I suppose I am,” I assured her as I flicked a bit of the cigertte bud on the side of the railing on the balcony, “I see you aren't alone so who are you with?”
“I was with Umbral. The Umbreon Gijinka. Damaris set us up for a date last minute. He's nice and charming.” She was twisting her finger through her hair, “But I didn't have enough time to hang around him since I had a others asking me to dance. Did you see me dance with Lux? I never dance like that in a while but I think I nailed it.” She giggled and blushed a little, “Lux is a really good dancer.”
I slightly chuckled when I learned she was with him, “You mean the dipshit? The Umbreon? HAHAHAHAHA now that's a laugh. Oh man....” The thought of her with him was amusing and I couldn’t retain my laughter. I knew she was trying to see if I were jealous which of him I wasn’t. He was small, scrawny, and pathetic looking…everything I wasn’t. “Lux huh? Yeah I saw you, it was impressive I won't deny. Your skills are still as good as ever.” I smiled at her and let out a breath of smoke to the side.
But regardless of my laughter, I had upset her as she frowned. I guess she didn’t find the humor in it as I did about going to the ball with the Umbreon. “Well thank you..” She rubbed her head and looked back at me, “Did you think I was hot?”
“Hot? Why would you think like that?” I smirked with the cigarette. “I presume hot could be a word that is befitting of you.” I shrugged at her. This conversation was getting boring and fast.
She blushed and changed the topic after a small moment of silence between us. “Did you always smoke Xio?”
I put my hand around the end of my cigertte to keep the bottom hot as a chill wind passed by. I didn’t look to her when I answered, “No just when I am extremely irritated or just need to relax.” But once the wind had passed I notice her shiver. She was trying her very hardest not to show how cold she was. Putting on a front amusing and yet so stupid at the same time. As a gentleman, I took off my jacket and put it on her shoulders when she was looking the other way. She quickly looked back at me at my gesture. “Idiot, you shouldn't be out here. You'll catch a cold in this weather. You are smarter then that or am I giving you too much credit?” I frowned at her.
Her cheeks were pink once again, “I'm fine I don't need it!” There was a gust of cold wind and Kiki quickly put the jacket back on, I figured as much. “Okay I except your offer...” I was annoyed at her not making up her mind. However, the look on her face told me she was thinking about something. “And thanks…So is something bothering you?”
“Not at all Kiki just don't need you getting sick....your sister probably would blame me for that too wouldn't she?” I grinned and let out a slight scoff. That women would blame me if Kiki got sliver around me so there was no doubt that sister of hers would blame me. She was even more of an irritating bitch then our leader here who did diddily squat except bark orders. “Anyway, you probably should get back in there before you catch a cold....” I saw her move to the door as I took another breath of from smoking, nevertheless, when I turned to look she was still standing there with my jacket on. “Do you need something dear?”
“Uh...” Was she distracted by something? Damn her. Just leave already. “Oh its nothing...”
Kiki turned to leave but stopped holding onto the door hinge. “Why...why did you do that to him?” Her voice was shaky.
I blinked, “What do you mean?”
“You did all though things...to Murphy.” So she wants an explanation about the bird?
I looked at her and sighed as I tossed the cigarette to the side. “Tell me something Kiki, have you ever lost anything dear to you? And when I say that I don't mean a pair of clothes or a small item. I mean something that has a great significance in your life?” I pushed myself up as I sat on the railing looking at her as the snow continued to fall.
She nodded without much thought, “Yes... my parents.”
I folded my arms, “Why don't you tell me what happen then I will explain myself to you. That sounds fair doesn't it doll face?” I glared at her.
Kiki turned away from me and clasped her hands together. “It was years ago before we settled near Alamos Town. I was a young Raltz and back then my family and friends; a few other families with kids traveled together to get away from hunters. One day we took shelter in a cave. The cave was inside a mountain and it was very deep...and dark,” Kiki shudder when she thought about that time. “But some hunters found us and we tried to escape to the other side but they were gaining on us. They would have found us but Dad and some of the adults had hung back to fight them. I don't know what happened. Then mom left outside of the cave and she went back to help. She told me and Gaia to stay and wait.”
As she explained this to me, instant memories of what happened to the village ran through my mind. Lydia’s murder in front of me. My father’s corpse over my body as he protected me from the enemy. The bodies, the blood shed, just listening to her sounded like the massacre I endured so very long ago. But this moment was about her, not me.
She sighed and continued, “But then there was an explosion and it was hours before we heard anything. Then one of the adults that stayed to watch over us and the kids went to check on what happened and I snuck away to follow them.” She crossed her arms and hugged herself. It was obvious she was holding back tears from the memories. I only listened, ”Dad and Mom had sent a brief telepathic message to us which they said 'good bye we love you'...” She didn’t say anything after that.
There was a silence once again between us but somewhere she built up the courage to go on. “I didn't understand the finality of it so that was why I followed the others. And when we got there it was so dark and then someone shined a light on a wall of rumble. They dug through and the first thing they found was the pocket watch...you've seen it! It belonged to my dad. And after a while they found them....” Kiki stayed silent for a while and whipped any signs of tears away from her eyes. “Well that's it...” She mumbled.
I couldn’t help but deadpan and unfolded my arms. “I see, so you aren't as naive as I thought you were. So you have experienced pain and suffering and let me ask you how did it make you feel.”
I pushed myself off the railing and walked up to her, “Then doesn't it make sense that sometimes you want to protect the things you hold dear Kiki?” She nodded to my question.
I guess it was time to explain my actions. “So why I killed Murphy...because I wanted too. Trash like him have no right to walk among the living and so I did you and the rest of your family a favor by riding the world of him. Such garbage like him do not deserve to breath the same air as I, nor should he walk the same ground as me.” I lifted my claws up and grinned sadistically at the murder I had committed so many months ago. “I loved every moment slaughtering him. His screams, the blood, everything so joyful. I rid the world of that scum so you should be thanking me for saving your life.”
She put her hand on my shoulder and looked at me sincerely. I admit I was a bit taken from this gesture. “I am grateful that you saved me. And I'll say it now; Thank you saving me and my family,” She frowned, “But I'm still mad at you...”
“Ha ha, whatever. You’ll get over that hurdle eventually.” I shook my head.
Kiki paused, ”Xio, did you lose someone?” A sick feeling grew in my stomach, “Was it Lydia?”
“As much as I hate to dribble on about my past, a memory, I will say this, yes Lydia was someone that I lost many years ago. She was a lot like you actually,” I turned to her and gently ran my hand across her cheek, “She was an aspiring dancer and had big dreams to make it to the top someday, which is why I admired her determination.” I swallowed and continued, “ She is the reason I know how to dance since I watched her for many hours, it’s not anything bad or if I had anything to do, I suppose I enjoyed watching her on the dance floor. Nevertheless, she never had the chance to pursue her dream.”
“I was merely 7 years old when it happened, I was chained from head to toe on the ground as she lay before me with grown men of every breed staring at her naked body. Right before my eyes, I watched those trashes do despicable things to her as she screamed and begged for me to be taken out of the room.” I bit my lip and turned my gaze away from Kiki. “I watched her get raped in front of me, yet there was nothing more I could do, even up to the last moment when they beheaded her in front of me…So did I really not have a reason to kill Murphy? Doesn’t that sound familiar?”
I glared at her with my stone cold gold eyes and her eyes had widen. She didn’t say anything but I could tell she knew what I meant.
“If you witnessed something that happened to your family again, I would bet that you would do anything in your power to keep it from happening?” I asked in which she nodded, “Then my promise to myself was this, I was never going to let someone go through that again. Yes, I possibly lost control, but it really doesn’t matter now does it? I protected what was mine.”
“Yours? I…I am not yours.” She pushed me away and took a step back. “Don’t patronize me Xio. You called me a rag doll and told me you were done playing with me. You don’t have any feelings for me. I even know what you did with those Chanseys. You had a threesome.”
“Humph, well I didn’t think you would ever find that one out. Silly me…” I chuckled rubbing my chin. “It doesn’t really matter does it, ask yourself this, could you honestly love a criminal?”
She let out some air and the tension was in the air. I could tell she was scared of me at this moment.
“If you want to know about me, fine. I have slept with many different women, but not one I took seriously enough. I have slaughtered and killed many with these two hands. I am a wanted criminal Kiki. There is a side of me you have yet to see, do you think you can handle that beast? I don’t think you can.” I placed my hand on her shoulder and lead her back inside the mansion. She followed my lead. “However, my intentions for you haven’t changed my dear Kiki. I told your sister I would protect you, and I will. Maybe someday you might even offer me your body.”
“Not likely…” She puffed out her cheeks pink faced.
I grinned. “Okay…”
“So everything was a big act, your feelings for me where never there? Then why-“
I interrupted her in the middle of her speech and I pulled her into my body to kiss her. I let my tongue roam with her mouth as I slightly gave her a small French kiss and held her tight. I pulled my face slightly away to breath as we looked each other in the eyes, “Never doubt the feelings I had for you…” I brought her in and kissed her once again and to my hopefulness she did the same.
Taking a step back and smiling at her as I took my jacket off her and sliding it back on myself, “Just for the record, I knew mistletoe was up there the entire time.”
She instantly blushed, “Why you? Err….I am so confused with you….I don’t even know what you are trying to tell me about those feelings?” She asked.
“I think you can make your own assumption with that kiss.” I grinned and began to walk away. With a wag of my tail I stopped and turned over my shoulder, “Kiki, you have no reason to fear the darkness. Embrace it...Also, if you wish to dance with me, don’t be afraid to ask….I won’t say no to you…” I waved to her and went back to where I was sitting before.
Haxlia had joined me soon after and jumped up in the air to give me a huge hug. “OMG thank you Xio!”
“Damn it women get off me!” I growled as she did so, “Why are you thanking me?”
“For bringing Luca to dance with me, it was so much fun, and we connected very well.” She beamed, “And I also saw you with Kiki…” She elbowed me again with a sly smile, “I saw that juicy kiss, you are a sly cat aren’t you?”
“Just shut up.” I mumbled as the lights went out. “Not like I didn’t notice yours either with Luca.” I put the ball in her corner as she let out a laugh all pink faced. "I saw the drool and how he his hand sliding up your skirt."
"Hahaha you saw that? Damn...." Haxlia was so embarassed.
"Pfft you have no reason to talk my dear Haxlia." I smirked at her.
"He's a good kisser but not as good as you!" She wagged her tail.
"Stop flattering me my dear!" I laughed.
It had appeared to be a ghost gijinka and she was an illusionist and she did some of her tricks on others. Including myself as I paid little attention to her.
"By the way I guess that who owns this wants it back, no~?" The gijinka named Mist asked the crowd.
Cocky little bitch took my jacket and I went up to grab it. “That’s my property, I wonder how you took it without my noticing.” Damn her…but she continued her antics on others. I sat back down to sit with Haxlia as the rest of the show continued.
So did we learn anything? Yes! You learned about Kiki’s past and a bit about Xio’s for those new members. Oh ho and you learned how stubborn he is? Well more will be revealed eventually but not now. I don’t want to steal anyone’s thunder, lol.
Thank you again so much for your help Art. I loved learning about Kiki’s past.
