A Vocaloid Fanfiction: Golden Heart - Neru - P10Neru groaned as she turned over from her bed as sunshine poured in from the window, welcoming the new day. She rubbed lazily at her eyes before rolling her body to lie on its back as she stared at the ceiling.
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
A Vocaloid Fanfiction: Golden Heart - Neru - P9"Ow!"
"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
A Vocaloid Fanfiction: Golden Heart - Neru - P7"Aaaaand we are done! Take a look, Neru!" Meiko stepped away from the blonde's face and admired her handy work.
Meiko had come over to help Neru get ready and make sure she didn't chicken out. She did her makeup and hair even though Neru was just naturally beautiful; this only outlined what was hidden underneath. Meiko knew her way around a makeup bag and though she to be quite the expert.
And now her proud work now sat in front of the mirror, staring at it, her hand hovering just below her face as if unsure of whether it was her face she would be touching.
For whom she saw in the mirror was a girl she could barely recognise. Wide, golden eyes stared back at her, rimmed with soft black eyeliner, and silver sparkly eye-shadow mixed with hints of blue and purple. Her pale face was powdered lightly with her natural features outlined perfectly and her lips painted with a gentle white gloss. Her long, blonde hair was piled up at the top of her head with a large clip, curls cascading down he
A Vocaloid Fanfiction: Golden Heart - Neru - P6Neru was ripped from her uneven sleeping by a loud banging on the door, as if someone who kicking it. She gave a loud, outward groan before rolling off the couch, rubbing at her half-shut eyes. She had slept badly ever since Haku had left and found that she was dropping off in random places. After one unexpected nap she found herself asleep on the kitchen floor, her back stiffly resting on the hard cupboards behind. Neru rubbed her neck hoping the get the crick out of it while finally making it to the front of the apartment to open the door; the knocking never stopping.
She flew open the door with as much strength as she could muster and tried to focus her eyes on the figure before her.
Meiko was standing at her door, a rather large red leather bag slung over her shoulder and her arms supporting a large cardboard box balancing two cups of takeaway coffee. It smelt heavenly.
Meiko laughed at her blonde friend's groggy appearance and let herself in, setting down the coffee and cardboard
A Vocaloid Fanfiction: Golden Heart - Neru - P5Why? WHY? Why was there so much rain lately? Neru hated the rain. She hated the feeling of being cold and damp, every icy trickle of waters finding their way down her neck down her back, making her shiver. The constant storms only matched Neru's mood as she woke up to her first day without Haku officially living in her house. There was so much more space and Neru felt the apartment actually looked bigger. But a bigger room meant a bigger emptiness. Neru didn't mean to act so bitter but the past course of events left her angry and raw. She didn't even want to be around herself, that's how grumpy she was.
She sat on the ground, leaning against the balcony glass door, holding Akaito's note from the flowers in her hand. She ran her thumb over the text, biting her lip. What was wrong with him? Every time she tried to push him away, he only drew closer. Every time she hurt him, he'd only react with a smile and continue. Why did he continue to confuse her heart?
Neru did not like to brood ove
A Vocaloid Fanfiction: Golden Heart - Neru - P4Neru awoke and for a moment everything felt normal and fine. But then she sat up and the feelings of dread and worry washed over her and settled in her stomach like a heavy stone. The sheer weight of it made it hard for Neru to move. She slowly got out of bed, seeing that Haku was absent.
Her eyes widened and she suddenly rushed out of her bedroom.
She couldn't have left already could've she?
She ran into the main room and saw Haku in the middle of a large pile of bags and assorted mess. The silver-haired woman turned to see her friend in the doorway, looking frightened and shaken.
Neru relaxed and leant on the side of the door, a hand to her forehead to push her bangs back.
"Neru, could you help me? I'm not sure how much I can carry on my way without having to make another trip "
Neru nodded and with a heavy heart she helped Haku with deciding on what she should carry and what she could come back for. In the middle of this, their phone rang and Kaito was on the line,
A Vocaloid Fanfiction: Golden Heart - Neru - P3"Don't stare at me like that, Neru! You're acting like I've returned from the dead!"
Akaito joked, giving a small laugh and a smile never leaving his face.
"What are you ?" Neru trailed off, her heart racing as her mind tried to comprehend the red-headed man in front of her with a black umbrella, shielding him from the unforgiving downpour.
"Speechless, in my presence again, eh Neru? My you do make my blush."
Neru suddenly felt anger bubbling inside of her.
"Leave me alone! Don't follow me!"
She sprang off the wall and prepared to run but Akaito grabbed her arm and with more ease than Neru had hoped for, pulled her back to face him.
"Now, now don't run away. I just want to talk, see? Harmless," his voice sound truthful enough but his piercing eyes gave him away.
"I have nothing to say to you," Neru replied fiercely, struggling in vain to escape from his grip. But alas, his long, slender fingers wrapped around her upper arm and there was no sign of them leaving.
"Whoa, whoa there,
A Vocaloid Fanfiction: Golden Heart - Neru - P2"I'm going to be moving in with Dell!"
Neru choked on her coffee and pounded herself on the chest to cough out the liquid that went down her wind pipe. As soon as Neru had sat down at their breakfast table Haku blurted out this news. Rubbing her throat, she attempted to speak.
"W what?" Neru replied, hoarsely.
Haku lowered her eyes to the floor and began to speak elaborately, something she did when she bottled up a secret. Once a drop of it was out the whole thing would come gushing through.
"Well, basically in hospital Dell and I have been talking and he's going to be discharged in a week's time so I thought I would move in with him since he's going to be out of action for a while and work at the bar from there until Dell is ready to go back to work. It's a paid vacation anyway but I want to be there to make sure he won't be getting hurt and now since we've gotten back together again I thought―"
"It's okay. You can stay as long as you have to. You're a grown woman you can m
