Soon other Guardians started piling in, and the meeting commenced. Many of the witnesses who saw the rebelling Weapon were expecting a speech about that, but what they got was different.

"Something is stirring in the Nightworld, and the higher ups of the Guardians are attending to the issue right now. Most missions we receive will be attended to by me and a few of you, who will be personally picked by me. And a new rule will be established for all members of Squad 2. All Weapons must be with their Guardians at all times." Celeste announced. She glanced at Julian and added, "This rule applies to me too. Any of you who break the rule will face severe consequences. You've been warned. Meeting over, you are dismissed."

She started to walk towards the door when someone shouted, "What about that monster Weapon?!"

"That topic is under strict restrictions." she hissed. She turned around to face the Guardian. Everybody gasped. They had always seen their Administrator with a cold emotionless face, but this face had plenty of emotion. Covering her whole face were feelings of rage, hate, and sadness.

Julian quickly stepped in, "You are all dismissed. Like Administrator Cyric pointed out, that topic is off limits. We both trust you guys not to say anything," he said sternly.

Celeste quickly turned around and stalked out the door, Julian quickly following. All the Guardians were still in shock from what just happened, but each one knew not to say a word.

"Administrator Cyric." Melody said bowing down to her superior whilst holding her sword against her chest.
She stood up. "I've heard that you met with the Duchess Farwick and Director Raziel. Do you have any news?" She looked at her Administrator with great admiration, but something was wrong with how Celeste's weapon looked.

Celeste looked at Melody, her face expressionless. She wanted to respond, but she felt that if she opened her mouth right now, she'd scream until she lost her voice. All the events so far had built too much stress on her. She quickly looked away, and patted Julian on the arm. He seemed really worried about her and understood what to do.

"Something's been going on in the Nightworld, but the higher ups are not sure what yet. Celeste and I have no clue what's going on. When we receive further news, we'll make sure to tell you guys," Julian said quietly. He wanted to quickly get Celeste away from here before she fell apart.

Celeste looked back at Melody and gave a small nod, agreeing with what Julian said.

"We'll see you later okay?" she managed to choke out. And with that she quickly walked away, but this time with Julian in the lead.

"How does it taste?" Ciel asked a smile played on his concerned face.

"Like you threaten the chief's life to cook it." Alice glared.

Ciel smiled now, "I don't deny anything."

They were silent for awhile as Alice drank her soup- her head swirled, she wanted so badly to curl up with a book, and let the stress of everything float away. But it seems stress was following her everywhere she went. Her Squad had lost five percent of it's members and fifty percent or so were in the infirmaries with serious injuries. Her mother was still in same state despite the new medicine, and now there was something tugging at her from inside threatening to rip her to pieces in seconds. Alice felt miserable, she wanted to scream against all the pressure. But she was Duchess, a noblemen of the Guardian's. She was not to belittle her responsiblities for what she wish to do, she would have to suck it up and take it like a man or at least that what her father tried so harshly to nail into her mind.

Alice inhaled and exhaled, she acted as if the world didn't exist, and for a moment it didn't. Until she heard the nurses tumble in stench of blood and sweat, their face were pale and their eyes ringed with red. But smiles aligned their faces. "She's going to make it, I just know it." One mumbled, her uniform was smudged here and there with blood, but she couldn't look happier. This is your fault, Alice thought. If you had just count the numbers over and over again, whoever SHE was wouldn't have ended up in extensive care. Alice sighed softly her hands clenched around the metal spoon, it vibrated with her hand. She was shaking?

Melody stayed behind with the other Guardians as Celeste and Julian left. She stayed until the other Guardians of Squad 2 left.
She went to window to look out, watching her Administrator and Julian walk off.
"You worried?" Vino said. He was leaning on the wall, looking at the ground, in the corner nearest the window.
"Admin Cyric.." Melody started, continuing to look outside the window. "I've never seen her look so out of it before."
"Well, she did seem pretty touchy when someone brought up this 'monster Weapon'."
"Right? Do you know anything about it?" She turned away from the mirror and looked at him.
"I wouldn't know. It seems Miss Cyric's own weapon doesn't know much about it either." He sighed, still looking away, after saying that last sentence.
"Well.. what if..?" She stopped, not sure of what she was about to say.
"What if, what?" He finally looked up at her.
"What if it has something to do with my mother?" She blurted out. Vino's eyes widened, surprised at her outburst. She looked away.
After a short pause, Vino said, "Well then," He walked up towards Melody. "Let's go find out." He patted her head.

Michiyo flew to the cliff area and sat down on the cliff.She out her book next to her and stared at the night sky.A cold wind blew and Michiyo listened to the faint whisperings of the sounds.She closed her eyes and felt the cool chilly breeze on her face.She let out a contented sigh.Michiyo opened her eyes again and held out her hand.A cold and frozen petal appeared on her hand.Michiyo looked at it for a while and crushed it.
It fell crumbled to pieces and fell to the ground.She waited patiently for it to melt.Michiyo stood up and took her book.She leaped lightly into the air and started flying again.She allowed herself to drop very closely to the ground before flying again.She kept to the darkness as usual.

Celeste felt tired. The stress kept on piling as she thought of all the events that happened today. Nothing had been working out for her. She trusted her fellow Guardians, but there was always someone with a big mouth. Rumors about the Weapon were sure to spread....

Julian had an arm around Celeste's shoulder. Not a sign of affection, but more like a support to keep her walking. He knew that this time of year was the worst time for stress to fall on her shoulders. "That Day" was getting closer, and Celeste was getting more restless. She had barely slept this week, not to mention she hadn't touched any food either. She'd been pratically living off water.

"How about we head to the cafeteria for some food? I'm pretty hungry myself," Julian said lightly, but with a hint of strain in his voice.

"I'm not hungry.... but if you are, then lets go...." she mumbled. Her pale white face was beginning to look even whiter, if that was even possible.

Julian picked up his speed as he half dragged her to the cafeteria. The usual Celeste wouldn't have been this out of it, no matter how bad the situation was. It was all because of "That Day".

"Such bad timing," he thought warily to himseslf.

When they reached the cafeteria, Julian was too worried about Celeste to see the Duchess and her Weapon were having a meal as well. He quickly sat her down in a chair, and rushed to get some food.

"He's too worried," Celeste thought to herself, "I'm perfectly fine...." Then it hit her.

"Urghh..." she moaned, while grabbing the table to support herself. A week of barely any sleep and no food was finally hitting her. She glanced over to Julian and made sure he hadn't seen her. He was busy chatting away with the ladies in the food line. "Good.... Urghh... This is my fault... was... careless..." she moaned even louder.

She could feel that she was losing control of her body. She was getting too tired.... Then the memory suddenly flashed through her eyes. The memory that she wished she could forget. The memory of the day everything changed. The memory of her sister dying. And with that, she passed out and fell to the floor. Tears slowly rolling down her face...

Melody and Vino were walking outside the meeting room building when a random Guardian ran into Melody, knocking her down.
"Hey! Watch where you're going!" Vino yelled out after him while helping Melody up. The Guardian didn't look back or even say sorry.
"Pfft.. trainees. Are you okay?" he asked her as she stood up, brushing off the dirt on her clothes.
"He was going towards the cafeteria." she said. "What?" Vino was confused.
"Look." Melody pointed towards a big crowd of people at the entrance of the cafeteria and more people were running towards it.
A nurse, with a wheelchair, and another teacher were also running towards the scene.
A pair of Guardians were running past Melody and Vino when he stopped them.
"Hey, you two. What's going on over there?" he asked them. They both look worried and a little panicked.
"Haven't you guys heard?" the girl said.
"Heard what?" Melody asked.
"Miss Cyric has fainted in the cafeteria." the boy responded.
Both Melody and Vino's eyes widened.

Posted 8/3/09
Commotion surged through the cafeteria. Ciel could see the tenseness of Alice's shoulders, her hand went to her temples rubbing them rhythmically, he looked around too see a large group surround the entrance with concern and astonish faces. He saw Vino, Celeste's Weapon he was bent over a body his face was constricted with worry, then he saw the body - Celeste. She was laying down on the porcelain floor, she wasn't dead. He could see the slow rise and fall of her chest, but she must've fainted.

"What's going on?" Alice's came in a low hoarse mumble. He knew she wasn't feeling well since they had come back from Hellebourne, her skin was flaming when she slept on his lap. It broke his heart to see her so vulnerable. Ciel said silent for awhile not wanting to give Alice a bigger headache.

"Ciel." The firmness in her voice made Ciel wide-eyed.

"Miss Cyric has seem to fainted." The Duchess didn't move from her spot, was she shocked or did she simply not care? It was impossible to read her, like a book written in another language. Silence was the only thing Ciel could hear, the commotion was nothing but a small little buzz in his ears, he was only worried about the blond haired- blue eyed sixteen year old in front of her.

"Is that so?" Alice finally said, her voice was empty almost expressionless.

Julian quickly bent down over Celeste. Something was wrong. Her face was starting to have a green tinge and she was running a high fever. He knew she had a very strong body, and that she wouldn't have these symptoms just from fatigue. She had gone a month without anything but water, and she had been perfectly fine. Something was really wrong.

Suddenly, Celeste's eyes fluttered open. They moved towards Julian's face, growing wide. Her eyes then started to wander all over the place, focusing then unfocusing repeatedly. Julian started to panic. And did the first thing that would come into mind. He slapped her. The crowd gasped. It wasn't a soft light slap. It was a huge, painful sounding slap.

That did it. Her eyes closed for a while then opened again, this time clearly focusing on his face.

"Thanks," she moaned. "Urgh..." and with that she started coughing violently. She threw her hand to her mouth, covering it. After the coughing stopped, she looked at her hand, eyes growing wide. Blood. She put her hand down and looked at Julian, her expression emotionless now. He looked down and saw the blood dripping from her hand. He started to panic even more.

"I'm fine. Let's go back." she said as if nothing had even happened. She got up quietly, and the crowed turned silent. And then she left, her Weapon still in the room frozen.


Posted 8/3/09
Blood, Alice could sleep it the iron rubber smell. She was bathe in it just a few days ago, it made her sick, it made her stomach turn. She couldn't help but look at Celeste. She never looked more weak? No, that wasn't the right word, she never looked so vulnerable. Alice never talked to the girl but she knew she was strong, she had to be, she was an Administrator. Though she would normally sit around and do nothing but, something boiled in her fragile body.

"Ciel." She mumbled, he looked up down at her with weary eyes. But she was gone, she danced into the crowd, her head spun with all the noise. Within seconds she was in front of Celeste, her hand extended. It wasn't sympathy that rush through her she knew that much. She wasn't sure what she was doing but there she was, with her hand extended to a girl she hardly talked to.

"If you don't mind my accompanying you to your quarters." The Duchess said, her voice was light and soft.

Celeste kept on walking. She knew Julian would catch up sooner or later. Or else they would have already broken the rule that was just announced today. He wasn't that careless.

She felt sick. If she wasn't an Administrator she would have still been on the floor screaming. That's exactly what she wanted to do. Scream. The blood kept on dripping, leaving a red trail. How much blood had she coughed up? The pain was overwhelming. If she didn't reach her room faster she was going to fall apart.

But then she heard footsteps following after her. They weren't Julian's. They were much too light to be his.


"If you don't mind my accompanying you to your quarters." The Duchess said, her voice was light and soft.

Celeste stared at her, her face emotionless. The Duchess didn't look all that well herself. Then suddenly a shot of pain ran through her whole body, adding more oil to the raging flames of pain. She gave a small gasp. She needed to get to her room quick, so she just nodded a yes to the Duchess and quickly walked towards her room.
Posted 8/3/09
Alice too quick steps, her arm braced Celeste's back, supporting her. The girl looked around the same height as Alice was through was much thinner. Her head looked up and around for Ciel who appeared at her side as if she called him.

"Medicines, get some and come to Miss.Cyric's quarters." Ciel was off in a flash. Alice tried carefully not to injure Celeste, she felt so fragile as if she'd shatter within seconds. They walked from the cafeteria into the hallway with quick steps. Walking up the spiraling stairs that took them to the towers, she let Celeste lead the way- mostly because she hadn't a clue to where she was going.

With the help of the Duchess, Celeste quickly reached her room. She opened the door and they both entered. Being an Administrator, she got one of the bigger rooms. Each of the four walls had one fairy stone lighting the room with a warm glow. A huge circular bed was placed in the middle of the room, piled up with cushions. Against one wall was a giant closet that almost took up the whole wall. Against another wall was a door that led to the bathroom, and another bed was placed there too. The third wall had a table pushed against it with two chairs, and the fourth had a fireplace with two cozy armchairs facing it.

Celeste walked over to the bed and sat down. Her fever was starting to get worse, and she didn't want anyone else to catch it. But it didn't seem like the Duchess was planning to leave quite yet.

"Please feel free to sit anywhere," she managed to croak before she went into another coughing fit. More blood.
Posted 8/3/09
Alice entered Celeste's room, the room looked much like her own, expect the furniture was much different, Celeste walked over to the bed coughing up blood, Alice cringed. Was she eternal bleeding? Alice looked out the door, hopping for the second Ciel would rush in, but as she waited she grew impatient. Her head wasn't getting much better ether, she took a seat on the edge of Celeste's bed, making sure not to hit her.

"How are you feeling?" Alice asked looking away from the girl, still staring at the door. She was never good at small talk, but she had to try. Or else she might go insane in the silence.
