" 𝘕𝘪𝘪-𝘴𝘢𝘯!!!", Came Lawless', now renamed as 𝘏𝘺𝘥𝘦's ear-piercing screams bursting in the air like a volcano erupting as the Servamp of Greed continued to shake his older awake, which was just responded by an annoyed grumble of ' 𝘍𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘦 𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘶𝘵𝘦𝘴...' making irked marks appear at the side of his forehead as he watched his older brother burying his face at the pillow all the while hugging it tightly.
An ' ahem' was heard behind him and the blonde Servamp unconsciously turned his head around, and was greeted by the sight of the Servamp of Gluttony looking all too smug and mischievous, " Allow me.", He said, it was quite surprising that he did not scream considering that he always does it, as he took a step forward, voluntarily taking a hold of the sleeping vampire's shoulders before forcefully lifting him, shaking the other with showing strength back and forth endlessly.
" HEY!!!", He yelled that's more like it, " WAKE UP!!!"
Lily, The Servamp of Lust was immediately at their side, sheepishly placing a hand on the older's shoulder, " Uh, maybe... That's enough.", He stated, " You're making Dear big brother dizzy.", He pointed out, smiling awkwardly.
World End turned to blinked at him confusingly, before averting his eyes from him, his gaze resting on his older brother's form, the shakes coming to an abrupt end, " C-can't d-deal.", Kuro grumbled as he felt the shakes stopping, instantly falling back to the sofa when the hands that held him vanish, with eyes spiraling as the dizziness was making him see the world differently, why is the world turning too much?
" Well, at least he's awake.", Hyde stated as he stared at Kuro's slumped form before he shamelessly laughed when the other stumbled forward when an attempted stand had failed.
" T-troublesome...", Kuro grumbled as he languidly straightened up with Lily's hand at his elbow to prevent him from stumbling.
Hugh, the known boastful Servamp of Pride suddenly jumped at the eldest, landing on top of his shoulders. Though the weight wasn't that much heavy, Kuro had still yet found himself stumbling. Mostly because of the surprise and the lightheadedness of his head because of the dizziness.
" You weren't suppose to be sleeping, Sleepy Ash!", Hugh complained, sounding like a 5-year-old as he hits the air with his staff.
Kuro sighed, " What a pain..."
The younger ones watched as the older of all of them retreated back to the sofa without much thought, laying back on it as his face was buried at the pillow. Instantly dozing off with much less struggle leaving the other occupants in the room in awe.
Lily blinked, confusion etched at his face before frowning.
Hyde didn't even bother to hide his frustration, feeling veins popping out of his head in irritation.
World End was already itching to shake his older brother once again.
While Hugh still at Kuro's shoulders just stayed there as he watched Kuro doze.
It seemed that all Kuro did was sleep, and honestly? They haven’t got a chance like this for more than a century. And all their big brother did was just that, sleep! It was cute at first, yes, they wouldn't argue with that because Kuro always had this relaxed expression that would melt anyone's heart when sleeping but, honestly as time went by and as he kept on doing it, especially if they are around, they just felt like he was doing it on purpose to ignore them.
The Mother of Wrath appeared behind Lily, scaring the hell out of the second youngest making him jump away. Looks like no matter how many centuries pass, The Servamp of Lust had still never gotten over the fear of the fourth vampire. The Mother looked baffled at the reaction played freely before her as she tilted her head to the side, face morphing into confusion though the edginess was dulled by the seemingly natural angry expression that was still plastered on her face.
Lily began incoherently stammering backing away and Wrath looked like she was about to say something though much to Lily's relief she was cut off by World End yelling at Kuro to wake up, with Hyde joining in. As the two angry brothers shook him awake.
" Hey! That isn't fair!!!", World End screamed, shaking Kuro awake.
" You weren't suppose to sleep, Nii-chan!", Hyde also screamed as he also shook the eldest to a state of awareness.
" S-such a-a p-pain...", Kuro mumbled, voice trembling as the shaking continued.
Lily was once again immediate at their side, this time mostly because to have a slight distance away from The Mother than stopping his brothers from further continuing tormenting their brother, though still, he had voiced out his concern, " Uh, you're making Nii-san dizzy again."
World End turned to look up at him in an amazing speed miraculously not getting a whiplash at the said action, eyebrows knitted in anger, " He deserves all the shaking he can get!"
Lily could feel the sweat running down his forehead, " Ah, well... at least, give him time... to, you know, at least, think.", He tried to at least talk them out of it, he knew that they wanted to glue their ties back together with Sleepy Ash but, he thinks that forcing him to do it isn't going to work. Sleepy Ash is still Sleepy Ash no matter how much ha changed over the course of the last days ( They really are thankful for Mahiru though, they wouldn't have this chance of mending their bond if it wasn't for him) the more you force him to do something, the more he hides in his imaginary hole, refusing to come out until he thinks it's good to come out.
He saw both the white-haired ad blonde-haired Servamp sigh in defeat, too much in sync if you ask him and Lily smiled encouragingly at them sending the silent encouragements of 𝘑𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘭𝘦𝘵 𝘩𝘪𝘮 𝘰𝘱𝘦𝘯 𝘶𝘱 𝘪𝘯 𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦, '𝘬𝘢𝘺?
Both the fifth and sixth Servamp lets go of Kuro feeling defeated though no matter how much they protest and complain about it, they know that if they did force him to talk despite knowing how rough it is still for the Servamp of Sloth, it's only going to cause for him to shut himself from them.
Waiting seemed to be the only best option in their vocabulary right now.
Though no matter how reluctant they are to do it, it's not like they have a say in the matter.
Okay, it's been nearing the end of the day and Sleepy Ash has still not yet opened up. He never even at least, talked to even one of them for even just a minute, just ' 𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘢 𝘱𝘢𝘪𝘯.' ' 𝘛𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘣𝘭𝘦𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦.' ' 𝘛𝘰𝘰 𝘮𝘶𝘤𝘩 𝘱𝘢𝘪𝘯.' and so on and so on with the complaints.
Just as time was ticking at the nearing end, Hyde was also ticking in his near frustration. It is just NOT fair, they are trying to reach out to him yet, he... He just won't open up.
He just kept on locking them out. At least, he should try reaching up to them too, just at least a little bit. It would be enough for everyone, 𝘐𝘵 𝘸𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘣𝘦 𝘦𝘯𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘩𝘪𝘮.
Hyde watched as his older brother intently played at his Gameboy, ignoring all outside irritation ( Does he think of them as irritation too) Was he ignoring them too? Knowing his, he probably was though, there is no need for any evidence after all the conformation is standing before him. He doesn't need any proof.
The bitterness had surfaced before he could stop it, It is just not fair, not fair at all.
Lily frowned when still, the Servamp of Sloth had yet again dismissed to bond with them, this is getting old, he felt. Even Jeje, though reluctant and unwilling had joined in and he's not even at least a bit talkative.
" Hey, Nii-san come on.", The Lust Servamp called out, " The circle won't be complete without you.", He started looking a bit more hopeful as he patted a left space at his side, indicating for the oldest to take it and join them.
Though the hope was crushed by only mere seconds when Kuro hasn't even slightly at least move a single muscle, he didn't even bother to look at them, not sparing them at least a slight glance. He just sat there playing his Gameboy non-stop with just a shrugged off his shoulders that they didn't even think that they'll need a translator to translate for.
" You have been playing there for the whole day Sleepy Ash, if not you just slept. Is it really that hard to at least join us.", The Mother glared up at him from the seated position she was at the floor.
There wasn't an utter of a single word for a few moments before Kuro's eyes moved to glance down at them, he closed his eyes as he stood up. Instantly most of the eyes of his siblings lighted up a light of hope, thinking that he'll finally join them. Before the most utmost of them frowned when they saw him turned and just 𝘸𝘢𝘭𝘬𝘦𝘥 𝘢𝘸𝘢𝘺 without a single word.
He just walked away... without even just--
Okay, that is that last of it! He will not endure it any longer, Hyde snapped, " Why are you always so like this Nii-san?! Can't you see that all of us are trying to reach out to you?!", In his peripheral vision, he saw Kuro abrupting to a stop in front of him, " Why do you always act like this?! I hate it! 𝘐 𝘩𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘪𝘵. It is just not fair! Not fair at all!"
He could feel eyes boring through him, shock and surprise at the sudden change of pace of events. Hyde ignored it, not paying it any mind. He could feel his eyes stinging at the lack of excess tears, chest tightening as if squeeze he continued, " It is just not fair at all! You can't open up to anyone besides that reliable eve of yours then, Is that it?!"
Kuro flinched at what he said but, never made any move to turn. He closed his eyes, taking a step forward as if he does NOT care at all.
" HEY! ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING!?!?", Hyde roared angrily feeling hurt and offended by the said action forcefully standing up, swatting the hands that dared touch and stop him. He marched towards the eldest tightly grabbing a hold of his arm, the nearest that he could reach, pulling him with such force that almost sends Kuro stumbling to the ground.
" Would you please just listen to me?!", Hyde yelled, " What is wrong with you?!", He turned around, glaring at World End when he dared try to stop him.
Kuro pulled his arm out of Hyde's grip which made Hyde growled in frustration yet, he made no act of reaching out again. Mostly because of the tense forms of his other siblings at his side, ready to restrain him if he lashed out.
" Fighting is not an answer, Lawless.", Hugh suggested which Hyde just 𝘵𝘤𝘩𝘦𝘥 to.
" Why do... you want to reach out... anyway?", Kuro whispered, head tilted downwards letting his bangs freely covering his face, shadowing any expression that could be seen as he hugged himself tightly at his waist, almost desperately and needily. As if those were the only thing that he can do to comfort himself.
Lily was instantly in front of him, uncertain hands placed on his shoulders, " You're our brother, why do you think that we would not reach out to you?", He softly said, his thumbs lightly running through his shoulder blades.
Kuro lifted his head a little, eyes glowing as he stared up at Lily before lowering again and he did what they didn't expect at all that he would do, he laughed bitterly pushing the hands of his little brother off of his shoulders, " 𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝙖𝙢 𝙄 𝙩𝙤 𝙮𝙤𝙪?", He venomously said, with such malice that it placed all of them on the edge of uncertainty.
" 𝘐'𝘮 𝘶𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘦𝘴𝘴, 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘩𝘭𝘦𝘴𝘴... 𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙝 𝙖𝙢 𝙄 𝙩𝙤 𝙮𝙤𝙪?"
He furthered hugging himself, tilting his head at the side avoiding the strange gazes he was receiving, " I do not understand why you would waste your time, waste your breath on a thing that doesn't deserve any worth. I do not understand why you would bother reaching out to someone that doesn't deserve any--"
𝐒𝐮𝐜𝐡 𝐮𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐝𝐨𝐞𝐬𝐧'𝐭 𝐝𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐡!
The demon in his head began ranting words that felt like knives.
A tear rolled down at the side of his cheeks before he could make a move to stop them, surprising those who had witnessed it.
𝘚𝘭𝘦𝘦𝘱𝘺 𝘈𝘴𝘩 𝘩𝘢𝘥 𝘯𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘤𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘥.
Had never at them witnessing it at least, Sleepy Ash had always placed his emotions in check, never showing any vulnerability nor any weaknesses. It actually surprised all of them the least if they're truthful, never once had they wished for a day to come to see Sleepy Ash to show vulnerability and weakness.
Kuro's eyes widened, staring unbelievingly at the stains of tears on the floor. They watched as he shakily raised an arm, his fingers touching his tear-stained cheek, almost unbelievingly as if wondering if this really is his'.
Kuro sniffed, tears rolling down from his eyes in a haste never stopping no matter how much he wiped them.
" Nii-san--", Lily tried calling out as he tried to reach out but before he could Kuro had already turned and ran away, crying, with them watching as he vanishes, mystified after him.
