As I helped Midnight up I was all to aware of the touch of her hand . I felt her beside me as we walked back to the school building, she took me down the corridor to a room which I guessed was her's.

"Well this is my stop, I hope I'll see you around school."

I remembered what my father told me about acting infront of one's Master, since I had said I was her Guardian.
"Yes, Milady. Goodnight." I felt awkward saying this but it was what was required of a Guardian. I would also have to sort out my feelings for her too, I bowed and when I straightened back up she had a frown on her face.

"Okay. Let's get things clear here, I'm not 'Milady', and secondly you don't need to be my Guardian. I know what you have to do if your a Guardian and I don't want our relationship to be like that."

My heart skipped a beat when she said relationship, and then I felt ashamed of myself. I mean who was I kidding, she would never go for some lame, cowardly 'Trickster' like me. She's a pure blood you idiot. She probulary has a boyfriend anyway.

I composed myself and said, "I cannot do that Milady. We Kitsunes' have to obligation to become Guardian's to whom ever saves our lives for at least 100 years before we are allowed to break our contract."

I turned to leave but she said, "Please Mazany I don't want you to get into something that you can't back out of."

My back straightened, as I said in a strained voice, "Goodnight, Milady. Our contract is set."

I walked down the corridor until I came to a corner and lead against the wall letting myself slid down. I closed my eyes and thought about what I had gotten myself into, and I still didn't know where my room was.

The End
