It was another day for the homunculus to survive, his stomach is growling in hunger as he looks inside the fridge. It’s nothing but an empty fridge on display. He needs to buy something to eat, but as far as he concerns the Homunculus is just a few years old, unable to do chores by himself since he used to be pampered by his so-called father.
The only thing he could make was a tepid coffee that Mizuno taught him, he likes the americano particularly. Iced americano particularly feels fresh for the homunculus to drink, he finds it strange afterward that he’s unable to sleep after drinking that delicious drink. He’s unknown to the liquids substances and the caffeine he chugged on for years affects his sleeping schedule.
Mizuno once scolded him for being addicted to the caffeine, but it was too late for Kazuto since he’s already ingested the caffeine in his veins as if it’s his blood. Kazuto drinks his americano, sipping the tepid coffee, he expects to see the son of Mizuno drops by. However, he never once visits him after a few days passed by.
Hunger took over his senses, he wanted to eat something for the living being inside his body. He’s excruciatingly famished for human souls, killing is his source of food since he gets to devour human souls for the Goddess of Death who resides within him. However, Mizuno taught him that killing people is wrong.
“You can live normally, as long as you’re away from that father of yours” Mizuno’s words reverbs inside his mind as if reminding him of the sole reason for him staying in Ikebukuro. “You’ll live normally as a human being, not as a killing machine, not as a deity”.
Kazuto had a flashback with the professor constantly treating him nicely, like a regular human instead of an outlet or tools. Not long after, he hears the doorbell ring at the front. Remembering what Mizuno always told him, he peeks through the peephole and sees the familiar man who guided him to the apartment.
He stands tall in front of his door in confidence, still wearing his scarlet suit as his brilliant azure eyes stare at the peephole boldly.
“Knock knock, are you at home?” the man asks politely with a smile. “I want to check up on you since it’s been a few days after your first stay, are you accustomed to Ikebukuro?”.
Kazuto opens the door for the stranger who helped him the other day, he nods nervously as his stomach then rumbles loudly right in front of the man. The raven-haired gentleman gasps but soon later replaced it with the sound of a slight chuckle. He offers Kazuto to treat him a meal since Professor Mizuno requested him to take care of the homunculus.
Kazuto is still unsure whether to accept his offer since he’s a stranger, Mizuno always tells him to be wary of his surroundings and other people’s intentions. However, before he could respond to him the young man, fainted on the spot as hunger makes him lose his energy.
* * *
“Fainted? What happened to him?” Cain grabs Kazuto’s back before he is able to collapse on the floor.
His stomach continues growling as he collapses, Cain surmises that he hasn’t eaten anything for days. It was strange since he knew Professor Mizuno’s son is around for a few days, looks like the man doesn’t have the initiative to treat him to something while they’re hanging out together.
It was also the reason why Cain is absent, he doesn’t want to invite the son to suspicion by being there when he’s around. Mizuno’s son has been quite sharp and careful, he wouldn’t want Shinzou to sniff his tracks. Setting aside that matter, he needs to feed the poor boy food, he’s surprised that Shinzou is neglectful as the rumors say.
Cain carries Kazuto bridal style, putting him on the couch of his apartment before leaving him with his key apartment. It’s unsafe to leave the apartment door unlock while the owner of the apartment is unconscious. The gentleman carries on as he exits the apartment, locking the apartment with a key he found on top of the kitchen counter.
He’s uncertain about the boy’s favorite food, he himself is twiddling his finger since he hasn’t eaten anything for breakfast as well. He strolls through the morning street as he passes a bakery on the side of the road. It’s a tranquil bakery, barely anyone spotted entering the young woman bakery despite its lively look from the outside.
A girl in a ponytail looks at the handsome gentleman as he makes his grand entrance to the bakery, treading elegantly with a smirk. Cain browses the counter for loaves of bread and other food for himself and the unconscious boy. He picks a strawberry sandwich, the favorite flavor he loves.
He also picks a plastic can of pudding, chocolate bread, and bread loaves for the boy to eat in the morning. Cain puts the items on the designated spot on the counter, he asks the lady charmingly about the price making the young woman blush with his seductive smile. She blushes as she receives the payment from the handsome gentleman.
“Thank you for the bread milady” Cain cups her fore palm. “I will be on my way then”.
The lady swooned by his suave sultry words, he can see her screams internally as she tries her best to cover her blushing face. After exiting the bakery, his charming face immediately turns into normal, switching his personality as fast as the lightning. He was feeling a bit perplexed by the fact the supposed caretaker wasn’t there to take care of the fainted boy.
“This is not what I signed up for” he mutters quietly as he sighs. “My mission is to retrieve him, not to babysit him”.
He thought of dropping by Shinzou’s house, but it would attract his unwanted intention if he gets too close to him.
Shinzou is painting in his bedroom, fully focusing his attention on the canvas in front of him. He was never been a science whiz himself so unlike his mother; the man doesn’t care about her mother’s job as a scientist. Even if she urges him to embrace his bloodline, the only thing he feels for science is hatred since her fascination toward science makes her stray from him.She never comes to see him amidst her projects, her fascination turns into an addiction that makes the whole family become a mess soon after. Divorced and taken by the mother, Shinzou regrets the decision since he was left behind in the house to look after himself. Her mother is preoccupied with her job, barely shows her presence to the lonely child.The luxurious apartment they purchased isn’t exactly heavenly to him now that he knew something wa
Hunger takes over his senses when the man can feel his stomach grumbling due to hunger. The last thing the homunculus remembered was the familiar face of the crimson tuxedo informant entering his view. After hours has passed, the fatigue and hunger took a toll on his entire body. He’s hungry for a soul to devour. However, the informant's images keep popping into his brain. Blossoming into the homunculus gray-colored brain. Sadly enough, his quiet time didn’t last that long. The sound of footsteps resonates in the hallway, alerting the homunculus about the presence of strangers gathering in front of his apartment. Kazuto goes into his bedroom, uncertain about what he should do next. He remembered the words from the professor were not to attract attention. However, he was beyond hungry at that point. He’s starved for human souls, and the berating sound of a metal baseball bat irritates Kazuto’s ears. His scarlet pupils shine in the darkness, an entity whispering inside his mind for
“I love you, Kazuto” the woman spoke in the boy’s mind. Kazuto who passed out earlier was immediately awakened by the voice of Professor Mizuno. He gasped when he saw the men in his house were all bathed in crimson liquid. The homunculus touched them, but none of them move from the floor. Their eyes are peeled open as if horrified by something that just occurred. Kazuto knew that it was her doing, the Goddess of Death made her movement. He was hungry for souls, but now he no longer feels that hunger. He can surmise that the Goddess of Death has satiated their hunger. Each of the men's chest and arteries are ripped brutally, his room is the perfect crime scene for a slaughterhouse.Kazuto still remembers the professor's messages, and that is not to cause any scene. However, he already causes a huge scene in the apartment he’s going to stay in. He’s quite surprised that no one has entered the apartment to report the violence and murder he committed. It was an old apartment, but there
The cleaners manage to clean Kazuto’s apartment, and no blood is to be spotted in that apartment. They clean the apartment, spotless from the red liquid and any corpses. The kids did their job well, Shu can sense the money will flow into his account. He had to divide the money amongst them.Even though Shu hates Cain’s guts, he saves them from starvation and abandonment. He only wants to return the favor to Cain, even if Cain never asked for anything back. However, it was personal for Shu. The teenager dislikes being in a debt, to someone else. However, it was his first time seeing Cain taking interest in a puny-looking human.The white-haired young man looks as if he’s an ill man waiting for someone to pick him up. He’s certainly not the sharpest man for following Cain. The informant smells bad news, nothing about Cain is sincere and genuine. He lies as he breathes, the ultimate trickster that will never cease to disturb your day if you possess something he wants to have.“Is that gu
It was strange to see the homunculus sleeping in his residence. A peculiar feeling occupies the informant's mind as he sees the young man lying on the sofa, sleeping with tuna sushi still inside his mouth. Cain can’t help but feel rather disappointed with the homunculus, he was expecting a smarter being, a Godlike human who can use the bestowed power cleverly. However, Kazuto was far from smart, he’s a clueless boy who knows nothing about the evilness in the world. Cain was expecting someone who is orderly, cunning, and evil to the core. He investigated the young man after all, who he truly is. A homunculus that had the soul of Izanami, the Goddess of Death. Cain touches Kazuto’s cheek, pinching his flesh to wake him up. He wants to tell him to go to his spare bedroom, but the young man is too sleepy to wake up. Cain carries him
Cain walks to the nearest sushi bar, the man sees the homunculus sitting obediently like a dog, possibly waiting for his tuna sushi. It’s hard for him to make some sense in the homunculus. He’s a baby inside that young man's body of his, he can’t be bribed with something like fame or money. The homunculus doesn’t understand the concept of money and fame. Kazuto wants tuna sushi the most, he doesn’t seem to care about the luxurious offer. After the sushis are prepared on the table, Kazuto munches the sushi-like there’s no tomorrow. His appetite for food is questionable, it’s certainly going to make his wallet dry if this keeps going. “You’re drying my wallet, but it looks like you’re enjoying your meal” Cain gives him a painted smile. “Are tuna that yummy?”. “It is! I never taste these before” Kazuto admits it openly, like a child. “When I’m still little, my dad always bought me junk food! It all tastes the same though”. Kazuto answers giddily, unaware that Cain somewhat felt sad f
It was all according to plan, the man reports Shinzou as a stalker who follows the homunculus around. He proved it with a shred of fake evidence to prove his guilt. The cleaners did their job well, diverting his attention from the sushi bar. If Shinzou knew where the homunculus is, he would be screwed. The two of them enjoy their stroll in Ikebukuro, especially Kazuto. His eyes shine brilliantly in sparkle when he lands his eyes on a cute display doll. He is indeed a child in heart, despite his stature as a young man. Shinzou had already gone far away, the painter is nowhere to be seen. A part of Cain’s heart feels relief, he smirks slyly when he watched Shinzou’s face in despair. The next plan is to try to subdue the homunculus royalty to him, he needs to gain his trust by following the homunculus wishes. Granting his wishes like how a Fairy Godmother would do, is his current plan. Cain asks the homunculus about what he wanted, with a bright painted smile to fool the homunculus. “
Cain doesn’t hesitate, he’s good at pleasuring the homunculus from the top to bottom. After all, he learned it from experiences with a classmate. Cain knows his ways with women, those who beg for it get the prize. The sly informant knows his way to pleasuring women, how hard it could be to please a random stray homunculus he just found. He was wrong at every level, his hands are fidgeting since he barely knew about the same-sex relationship. Even though he was a playboy in his youth, Cain never had a same-sex partner in his past relationship, he tried to do it right by the book. However, his hand keeps tracing in the same circular motion on the homunculus's hardened nipples. Lust overcomes his senses, breathing raggedly toward the lewd homunculus. His cloudy eyes couldn’t hold back Kazuto’s seductive moan. His nipple must be sensitive, for Kazuto to moan this hard just from him circling it. Kazuto’s lusty eyes meet Cain Azure ones, at that moment it became clear what happened to hi
