After picking themselves off the floor, Tsukune replaced the rosary on Moka's collar, instantly reverting her back to her pink-haired, bubbly self.
She slowly fell into Tsukune's arms, once the transformation was complete.
Moka was sound asleep.
He gently walked her over to his bed, laid her down, and then covered her with the sheets. Tsukune admired her sleeping form as he instantly recalled them becoming one just a short while ago.
Even though it was still early evening, he suddenly remembered that he would have to return home to the human world tonight.
Tsukune then had an epiphany.
After quickly getting dressed, he gently kissed Moka on her forehead, then walked to the door and put his shoes on. He opened the door slowly as to not wake her, then walked into the hallway and closed it behind himself.
Running quickly down the corridor, he made his way to the payphone, inserted some change, and then dialed the number.
After what seemed like forever, the other end was finally answered.
"Hello? Aono residence."
"Hi, Mom. It's me, Tsukune."
"Hello, son. Where are you? I thought that you'd be home by now?” his mother Kasumi inquired, with a hint of worry in her voice.
"I'm still at school, but I'll be home soon....um...and if it's okay, I'd like to bring someone home with me....one of my friends from the Academy....", he shyly asked.
"Oh....I see....well, would this happen to be a female friend of yours from your ‘harem’?” Kasumi jokingly inquired.
"Uh, yeah...actually, it is....you met her two years ago...you remember Moka Akashiya, right?"
"Oh yes! Such a lovely girl. She was very sweet and kind. Yes, I remember her. So is she your girlfriend now?"
Tsukune was rendered somewhat speechless, and suddenly caught off guard by his mother's rather bold statement.
"Uh....yeah...she is. I finally told her how I felt about her...and uh....she confessed to me too....ahahaahaaha.” he blushingly replied.
"Well, if her family doesn't mind, then I don't see why not. You are eighteen now, and I trust you, son. I'm sure your father won't mind, either. But you two will have to be on your best behavior, though."
"Thanks, mom. We'll be there most likely tomorrow morning, once Moka gets permission from her family."
"You're welcome, Tsukune. We'll see you tomorrow morning then. Tell that lovely girl that I send my best. Goodbye, son."
"Okay, we'll see you tomorrow morning then... goodbye, mom."
He then hung up the receiver, and made a beeline for his room, grinning like an idiot the entire way back.
He was quite happy his mother got along so well with Moka.
Once Tsukune opened the door; Moka tackled him, knocking him to the floor. She passionately kissed him on the lips, as she tightly embraced him, as though her very life depended on it.
"Tsukune! Where were you? I was so worried that you would leave me!” she stated, as she shed a few tears into his t-shirt. He returned her embrace, as he kissed her in return.
After a few minutes of bonding, Moka dried her tears, as she helped him off the floor. Holding her hand, he walked themselves back to his bed, and then sat down.
"Moka, I'm sorry. After I replaced your rosary, you fell asleep. I didn't want to wake you. I just had to call my parents, as they were expecting me home this evening.” he calmly explained to the beautiful green-eyed vampire, who was now dressed in her pink top and denim mini skirt.
"Oh...I see....so what did you tell your parents, if I may ask?"
"Well, uh, I asked my mom if it would be alright to bring you home with me...I then told her that we were now dating, and she happily agreed. But, we'll have to be on our best behavior, she said...hahahahaaa.", Tsukune replied as a fast blush raced across his cheeks, knowing very well what his mother meant when she told them to behave themselves.
Moka blushed too, hearing her Tsukune's wonderful idea.
"Really? I can come back with you?” Moka happily beamed back.
"Well, yeah...as long as your father agrees. I was planning on taking some time off, seeing as school is over now....and I was thinking....maybe you could stay with me for a while....I was planning on going to work this coming Summer...and maybe attend college in the Fall....but...I don't want to be away from you Moka....after everything we've been through, I just want to be with you, Moka. I love you so much..."
"Oh, Tsukune. Yes. I want that as well. I'm sure father won't mind. I already know that he approves of you; otherwise you'd be dead already. As for my sisters, well, that may take some time... I don't want to be away from you ever again. I am so much in love with you...I nearly lost you on several occasions before....and well, hearing you tell me this, makes me very happy.", Moka replied as she hugged him even tighter.
The happy couple decided to head to the bus stop at the edge of the Academy and wait for the last bus of the evening. Moka told Tsukune that he would be able to stay overnight, since they would be heading to the human world early tomorrow morning. Tsukune's bags were already packed for the trip home: he'd just have to swing by the dorms to retrieve them, before leaving the Academy.
Shortly afterward, the bus finally arrived.
The Bus Driver just grinned when he saw Moka and Tsukune as a real couple after all these years. Moka kindly asked him to drive to her parent's home, on the far side of the tunnel.
They just sat hand in hand; as Moka laid her head on her boyfriend's left shoulder, and closed her eyes; while wearing a happy smile across her features.
Tsukune still couldn't believe that he and Moka were now officially dating.
After all they had been through; nearly losing one another - he felt blessed to have met this wonderful young woman, those three years ago.
Roughly thirty minutes later, they finally arrived at their destination: Akashiya Castle. Tsukune remembered his first time here, just two years ago, when he had to retrieve Moka's new rosary; as her previous one had been severely damaged.
He also recalled how incredibly strong her father was, and nearly killed him, but since Tsukune was infused with Moka's vampire blood, he somehow survived. But over the course of the past two years, he had gone through an incredible transformation, and his powers had increased exponentially.
Even with his powers sealed by the Holy Lock he wore on his right wrist, he was still very strong, and incredibly durable in his human form.
While walking along the spooky path to the Castle, Moka still held his hand, silently letting him know that everything will turn out all for the best.
A few minutes later, they arrived at Moka's home. They were greeted by her father, Lord Issa Shuzen; the head of the Akashiya vampire family.
"Moka, welcome home...it's so good to see you!” he happily said as Moka gave her father a warm hug.
"Hello, father. It's so good to see you, too," Moka replied after she released him from their hug. She continued: "Father, you remember Tsukune Aono, my classmate?"
Her father just inspected the young man. Tsukune sweat dropped, as he was once again holding Moka's hand.
"Ah, yes. I do remember - he was the one who came to retrieve the new rosary, since the former one was damaged. I see that he has...changed a lot since then." He then stuck out his right hand and shook Tsukune's hand enthusiastically.
"Ah, it's very good to see you again, Lord Shuzen.", Tsukune replied while he bowed out of respect.
"Now, now, there's no need for formalities, son. After all, Akashiya blood flows through your veins now. As far as I'm concerned, you are part of our family. Come in please, and make yourself at home. Our home is your home.” the elder vampire lord replied, as he turned around and walked back through the large wooden doorway.
Tsukune and Moka followed behind him hand-in-hand, wondering why he was acting so warm and welcoming after all this time.
After the huge wooden door closed behind them, Moka and Tsukune followed her father through the large foyer.
"You're more than welcome to stay for dinner, Mr. Aono. After all, you seem to have grown quite attached to my daughter.” Lord Shuzen told him, as he saw the happy couple still holding hands.
"Ah! Lord Shuzen, please call me Tsukune. And yes, I'd be more than happy to have dinner with you and Moka. Actually, I have something to ask of you afterward.” Tsukune half-nervously stated, knowing what must be said very soon.
After dinner was finished, Tsukune was waiting for the right moment to ask Moka's father Lord Shuzen to allow his daughter to accompany him to the human world. Unbeknownst to Tsukune, Moka picked up on his emotional instability, and decided to speak first.
"Um, father. There is something that we'd like to discuss with you. How do I say this...?” Moka started.
"Yes, Moka. What is it? Come on, spit it out, now. No need to be shy.” Lord Shuzen replied, with a hint of mischief in his voice.
"Lord Shuzen", Tsukune interjected, as Moka held his left hand. “There is something I'd like to ask, but before that, I just want to tell you that Moka and I are deeply in love. Actually, I've been in love with your daughter for nearly two years now, and have just recently realized that fact. She was the very first friend I met when I came to the Academy three years ago. She was very sweet and kind to me, even after she found out I was human back then; and always helped me out whenever I needed her; but through several incidents and nearly dying after I was attacked by the Student Council Police, they nearly killed once they found out I was human. She was the one who saved my life by injecting her vampire blood into me - and for that, I am extremely grateful."
Tsukune took a deep breath and continued:
"I don't know when it happened, but I started to see her differently, and before I knew it; I had fallen in love with her. Of course, I didn't have the chance to tell her back then, as I didn't want to ruin the wonderful friendship we had. But I always did my best to protect her, even after I started to change into a Ghoul. She is everything to me, and I can't bare the pain to be away from her any longer. So, with that in mind, I'd like to ask for your permission to bring her back with me to the human world, on a permanent basis."
Lord Shuzen just sat there with a blank look across his features..
Moka was speechless as well, as tears ran down her cheeks after hearing Tsukune's heartfelt declaration.
She was also uncertain whether or not her father would accept their love, and allow them to be together.
After several moments of awkward silence, Moka's father finally smiled, then spoke up.
"Moka, how do you feel about Tsukune? Do you wish to be with him, and follow him to the human world?"
Moka cleared her throat, and finally replied.
"Yes, father. I love Tsukune. More than I ever thought could be possible. It's true. He was also the very first friend I made three years ago. Even when I told him I was a vampire, he never judged me for what I was, and accepted me as I am. I do wish to be with him; after all we've been through - I don't want to be apart from him. Ghoul or not, I love him very much."
Lord Shuzen just eyeballed the young man for a few uncomfortable minutes.
Then spoke up.
"I see. Yes, I see. It's very clear now. Hmmm....well if that's the case then, Moka, do you wish to be joined with him, and have him as your mate?"
"My 'Mate', father? I don't quite understand.", Moka softly replied.
"Allow me to explain, my dear daughter. It seems to me that Tsukune cares a great deal about you - just as you care deeply for him, BUT - has he allowed you to drink his blood out of his own free will? What I mean is, has he offered you his blood to you out of concern, and allow you to feed on him?"
Moka thought it over for only a brief second.
"Yes, he has father. On several occasions.", she replied, as her face grew a healthy, pink blush that nearly matched her hair.
Tsukune blushed as well hearing her boldly confess as much.
"Well dear daughter, if you say as much to be true, when a human allows a vampire to freely feed on them, it's a very special occasion. It's akin to being intimate. As Tsukune offered his blood to you freely, then I have nothing to worry about. It just means that he has accepted you into his heart. But for you to be his mate, he will have to be turned into a full vampire. Only then can you be truly together. Simple as that.", Issa explained.
The young couple looked at each other confused as to what Lord Shuzen told them, just a moment ago.
Issa spoke up once again:
"Allow me to explain. It's quite simple, actually. Since Tsukune was injected with your blood, Moka, he is considered to be a ghoul. The Lock he wears seals his powers as does your Rosary. For him to be a 'full-blooded' vampire, he would have to suck your blood to finish his transformation. One-quarter of a pint should suffice. You, my dear daughter, will have to freely offer your blood to him. However, you will both have to be unsealed in order to do so. After his transformation is complete, you can be with him forever. So, are you two willing to go that far to be together?"
"Yes.", they answered in unison.
"Wonderful. Then tonight at Midnight, when the full moon reaches its peak, will we have the ceremony. I suggest that you both remain here for the night, as Moka will have to keep an eye on you, Tsukune; to see that your transformation goes smoothly."
"Thank you, father.", Moka replied as a happy tear trickled down her cheek.
"Yes, Lord Shuzen, thank you. I will take good care of Moka from here on out.", Tsukune replied as he bowed out of thanks and respect.
"You're both welcome. You have four hours to prepare yourselves mentally and psychologically. You will have to remove each other’s seals during the ceremony. Until then, get some rest. There are guest rooms upstairs. Tsukune, Moka will show you the way. I will see you both before Midnight. Until then...", Lord Shuzen said, as he turned around, then made his way towards his study.
Moka lovingly embraced Tsukune. She was literally tickled pink at her father's acceptance of her one true love. They then walked hand in hand up the long stairwell that lead to the bedrooms.
Four hours to rest.
Four hours to get prepared.
Four hours until Tsukune would be a full vampire.
'This is going to be a long night,'
Tsukune thought to himself.
Well, I know I said that this would be a one-shot, BUT after much deliberation and readers asking for a continuation, this is the long awaited result. I'll leave it here for now. Next chapter will deal with Tsukune's transformation into a full-blooded vampire. I know Lord Shuzen is really OOC, but I wanted him to accept Tsukune. Simple as that.
