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 was up. As he paints on the blank canvas with his swift and precise movement, his mind wanders to his mother. He wonders if his mother got herself into trouble for her to even tell her son to be wary of his surrounding.
The letter specifies the purpose, the young boy must be protected under his wings and not anyone else. Shinzou is boiling in anger, remembering the letter she sent after disappearing from the house without telling him what she’s involved in. He crumpled the letter then waste it in the trash bin.
It’s still in the trash bin for a few days, he can’t help but feel abandoned by his mother for another unknown person with the name Kazuto. He dislikes Kazuto, his hand tightened his grip on the paintbrush the moment he remembers Kazuto inside his mind. He despises the boy for taking away his mother.
“Delivery here!” a stranger rings the doorbell to his apartment.
Shinzou peeks from the intercom, it’s the pizza delivery he ordered half an hour ago. He opens the door then takes the pizza with him, not forgetting to give the money to the delivery man. He takes the pizza with him, putting the pizza on the dining table.
Shinzou washes his hand in the sink, he still has money left to pay the rent from his part-time job and his mother’s salary she sent every month to the apartment. Even if the apartment is a condominium, he’s lonely without anyone to accompany him. His father is remarried and he was left alone with the fortune his mother made.
“But what’s all of this fortune for if my mum is not here with me?” he groans as he returns to the empty luxury living room. “I need to find a job soon before this apartment is taken away”.
Still eighteen years old, the man has yet to graduate from high school. He just had to wait for the graduation ceremony whilst looking for a job.
“I wonder if I should sell the apartment if mum is not coming home soon” he thoughts to himself as he looks at the marble table along with the carpeted floor. “I don’t need the luxury if there’s no one here to talk with, I’m going insane if mum keeps hiding from me like this”.
She opens the pizza cover, immediately picks the first slice of pizza, and sniffs the smell of bacon on top of the pizza. He eats the pizza, deliciously munching the cheeseburger taste. Shinzou munches the pizza then turns on the television, right on the television is a piece of news about an unidentified corpse found in the river with only bones.
He shakes his head annoyed with the bad omen around him, the world has never been a safe place for him.
“I wonder how’s that boy doing? That clueless boy, I left him for days and I wonder if he’s already getting used to Ikebukuro life” Shinzou rubs his chin.
He forgot about her mother’s letters and her favors to take care of the clueless boy in the small apartment. Shinzou’s mind remains fresh after he sees the boy who takes away his mother from him, it’s the face of innocence. The strange boy is clueless with his bearing and situation, his mother must have kept the boy in the dark.
His ivory hair is accompanied by the scarlet colors on his clear eyes. Longing for a mother figure, Shinzou despises the newcomer who just came into Ikebukuro to ruin his life. He tightened his grip on the pizza as he looks at the television from afar, gritting his teeth in jealousy of what the young man receives from his mother.
“Who is he anyway? I don’t care with him” Shinzou snarls. “Why should I take care of that man on my mother’s behalf? That’s insane! I don’t even get the fair portion of my mother’s love!” he yells on top of his lungs.
Shinzou needs to continue the canvas he works on in his workroom, but he doesn’t feel like doing it anymore after remembering the face of a young man who takes his mother away appears to be a pacifist. He wants to hate on him, but the young man doesn’t give him any reason for him to hate.
Shinzou sits on the couch while eating the slice of pizza, watching the news only depressed him hence he switch the channel to the cooking channel.
“Hello there, my name is Adam Lockhart! I will now show you how to cook salmon sashimi in the kitchen!” the half foreigner man speaks.
He remembers Adam Lockhart’s name in a heartbeat, it’s the name of a famous actor from Japan, his parents’ divorce just like he did and raises him like a celebrity. Not known much from his brother, but he never shows up on television even if the interviewer asks about his family situation.
“Just leave that man alone” Shinzou shrugs. “People like to find dirt about foreigners, huh? He’s half Japanese you know”.
The man complains as he slouches on his beige couch, letting the comfortable couch takes him to the dreamland. Letting go of the burden and responsibilities on his shoulder about taking care of the stranger in his mother’s letter. Shinzou sleeps on the beige couch, snoring with a pizza on hand.
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
Flashback to a few years ago…It was a sunny morning, the white-haired man finds himself sleeping naked under the covers. Masaki was nowhere to be sighted, suddenly the coldness spread over his thin body. He seeks the warmth that envelop him that night, even though it was just a momentary warmth. Kazuto loves the affection Masaki gave him.He was taught that Masaki’s affection was toxic by Professor Mizuno, but honestly, he didn’t mind it. At first, he didn’t mind it, but the man slowly became possessive of him that it made him feel depressed. Like a bird in a cage, his wings were taken away from exploring the outside world.All Kazuto knew was that his touch made him feel like he was truly loved. It was as if he cares for him for he truly is. However, the next morning he opened his eyes, and it dawned on him that Masaki was no longer next to him. Professor Mizuno always came to check on the clueless young man for any sign of injuries and bruises on his body.Kazuto wasn’t sure why Pr
