A Vocaloid Fanfiction: Red Flames - Meiko - P1A lot can happen in a year. Love, betrayal, life, death, loss and new beginnings; and sometimes you can find yourself standing back where you started while the world around you shifts and changes and you try to stay rooted to the ground, desperately grasping the life you used to have before it would slip through your fingers like sand.
But if nothing changed you would never experience the events life has to offer, wouldn't you?
It was exactly how it had been a year ago, a stormy night sky over the small, modest diner bar. Heavy rain pounded against the glass windows; the moon leaving scary, spiky shadows on the wooden floor. To the side, a door was slightly ajar and inside laid a sleeping Meiko, her head surrounded by bills and notices as she tried to rest in her dusty office. Proper, restful sleep was impossible and dreaming was even more so. Meiko founded herself awaking to the scene before her; a seemingly endless number of unpaid bills and papers warning her that thi
A Vocaloid Fanfiction: Golden Heart - Neru - P13It had been hard. They both had to admit, it had been hard. Not all of their problems would be solved when they confessed their love for each other and they still had hardships they needed to face alone and together.
First off, to those (Meiko) who were frantically worrying about where Neru was after she abruptly left the party and those that were concerned for her health (Haku). And even Dell who still wasn't sure of what to think of the red-head. The two eventually realised they had a lot in common (especially with their love lives) and came off as plausible friends; much to the delight of Haku and Neru.
Once Neru had dragged herself out of Akaito's bed (even though they were together she still wasn't a hundred percent comfortable about sleeping in the bed of her man, even though he politely took the couch and left his bed to her) and rummaged through her purse to look for her mobile she found that the battery had died. After charging it, the phone was flooded with unread messages an
A Vocaloid Fanfiction: Golden Heart - Neru - P11Neru couldn't move. She was stuck in bed, with a massive headache and a rapidly growing cold and fever. Images became fuzzy shapes and sounds became blotted and mumbled. All Neru could do was lie back on Akaito's pillow and rest; which was extremely hard on account of that she couldn't even breathe through her nose and her migraine was impossible to ignore.
Akaito walked in; immediately noticing the blonde's displeasure and with a smile he sat down beside her, replacing the towel that lay across her forehead. Neru, blearily, opened her eyes to look at him.
"Feeling better?" Akaito asked gently.
Neru scowled at him, which only increased her headache.
"Just peachy," she replied, closing her eyes in pain.
Akaito ran a long hand down the side of her face and slid it under her neck, lifting her head off the pillow. Neru's eyes flipped open in suprise as she saw Akaito wave some medicine in front of her.
"Take these tablets. They'll help with the pain and make you sleepy so you should be abl

but it wasn't her ceiling. Neru blinked, still half asleep as she looked around her room in confusion. But it wasn't her room. Neru sat upwards and found herself in an unfamiliar four poster bed. Her head felt a stab of pain and she clutched it, rubbing her temples.
"Somethin' the matter, Neru?" Neru snapped her head towards the direction of Akaito, bare-chested with a tooth brush in his mouth and a faint line of foam on his lips.
"Akaito last night did we ?" Neru gestured at the bed below her. Akaito stared at her for a few seconds, not understanding what she was talking about. Then his eyes widened as he almost dropped the toothbrush out of his mouth.
"What?! No! No, I wouldn't have done that!" Akaito went as red as his hair as he wiped the foam fro

"Oh, stop squirming and sit still!"
"Stop wriggling! Hey! You kicked me!"
"Well stop hurting me!"
"I'm trying to help you, Neru!"
Neru stuck her tongue out and turned away from him. The two currently sat in Akaito's flat, the basement of a shared house with Akaito trying to dab anaesthetic on the stubborn girl's scraped knees from when she fell on the concrete.
Akaito had lent her a T-shirt and what he claimed was his smallest pair of jeans seeing as her dress was torn to shreds. Both items of clothing were too big for her but she was too tired to care. She refused to look at the man while he patched her legs up and she gave up fighting against his touch. He had changed into more comfortable clothes as well.
Slowly he let go of her calf but didn't move from being hunched down at her feet. A silence followed and Akaito saw Neru's troubled expression and misty eyes.
Smiling sadly, he gently grabbed her chin between his thumb and forefinger and turned her face to
A Vocaloid Fanfiction: Golden Heart - Neru - P8Akaito pulled her upwards and Neru struggled to break free from his grip but he simply grabbed one of her hands with his own and the other placed upon her hip. Neru stared at him for he wasn't speaking at all, just smiling mysteriously at her as he led her across the dance floor. The music began to speed up and Neru made one last attempt to run away but Akaito spun her out then spun her in dangerously close. Looking up into his burning eyes Neru realised something. This wasn't a dance; it was a challenge. Neru soon began to dance wildly with him as the music began to go even faster, spinning and twirling, pulling in and out while never taking her eyes off the man in front of her.
He was dressed in a black dress shirt with long, sleeves and a red waist coat with long, black dress pants with a golden belt strapped around his side and giant, crinkly knee boots. He wore a dark, mysterious black cloak that was edged with red and golden stitching and a black leather hat with a lo
