The woman gave a small laugh that was very unpleasant. “Come in little ones.” She moved to the side and rushed them in.
Violet was very nervous, unsure of how the woman could see her. She stayed close to Ciel and nodded. “Thank you again.” She gave a innocent smile as well.
Ciel was a little skeptical about this whole thing, but knew he should trust Violet on the idea of visiting and trust Sebastian to take care of him if he were to be hurt enough for even his small demon body to be unable to do anything. The dank and ghastly woman seemed to match her home, which seemed just as horribly dreary as the family it held. Horrid, cold, threatening, unsafe. Disgusting. He managed another smile after the door closed, “Thank you. May I know your name?”
Violet walked with a worried look and at one point the lady tried to reach out and touch her but stopped. “Yes ma’am?” She asked innocently.
"Nothing. But if you must know I’m Vivian." She replied and lead to a guest room, passing many orphans that looked misserable and sad like always. They seemed pale and dreary.
"You two are too cute together go on, it’s okay to hold hands." She said to Violet and Ciel but to Violets surprise a little boy came up and grabbed her hand. It burned though and she flinch, "hello miss, who are you?" The kid gave a evil laugh as if he knew what it did to her.
"Don’t touch her!" He growled once Violet flinched, instantly dropping his sweet and innocent facade. Only whatever God there was could have known the sudden fear and anger the rushed through him as the filthy little boy approached. The child was not normal. Not healthy. Nearly inhuman. It was disgusting, though ironic considering that he himself was an embodiment of evil, but the little boy was more impure and toxic and dreary than he could handle. He was more empty than fulfilled. An undesirable soul. Nearly all of them were. He knew couldn’t let these orphans interfere, "She’s mine."
The little boy didn’t jump he just watched Violet pull away and look at her now burned hand. The boy still had his wicked smile, he was obviously the lady’s son. Vivian looked back with a smirk. “Jealous are we? I wouldn’t be surprised, she’s fragile without a body. Just like the kids im the cellar except. They are a body with no soul, not as fragile.” She looked at Ciel then at Violet. The boy then reached out and touched Violet again, making her wince and jerk away. “I asked your name. Answer.” He ordered. On the mean time, Vivian made sure Ciel would pay as well. “You’re not as fragile, what a shame.” She then pulled out a knife and went to stab Ciel. “You two will join our dead children.”
"My young master-"
Ciel interrupted Sebastian as he attempted to help, horribly aggravated by the presence of the disgusting little boy and even more so by Vivian, “Let her.”
The knife plunged into his chest, just as expected, though he didn’t fall or cry out in pain. He didn’t even flinch. Violet, Sebastian, the little boy, and the rest of the horrid orphans all watched as he pushed her back without any effort. His eyes began to glow a deep red rather than the blue they once were, and he pulled out the knife once Vivian was out of the way. It had been quite a long time since he had let go of his human mask, but just the aura that these children and this house gave off was worse than any he had experienced, even in the cellar of the crime scene they were at before, which held just mere corpses of humans unlike the decaying souls here, “You’re all disgusting, horrible, vile creatures. Not worthy of these “fragile” beings, nor demons. Useless, broken dolls, all you are.”
Violet had sat down, holding the new burn that was on her. She watched as Ciel got stabbed and screamed in fear. She reached out a hand and then stopped, frozen as he remained to be alright. Vivian stumbled back and glared at him. “How dare you touch me?” She glared at him. “You’re disgusting, so unclean.” She snarled. “Lye, finish the girl and then help me with this brat.” He nodded and went to grab her again.
Ciel growled again, “Sebastian, this is an order! Keep the spirit safe- kill the boy if you have to!”
The butler obeyed, standing in front of Lye and gave a bright smile. With a simple swift move he had the child on the ground as the other orphans watched in horror. He couldn’t dare take his life if it wasn’t the doing of a reaper, but if it was necessary he would definitely kill the boy.
Ciel, on the other hand, was having a bit more difficult of a time fending off the nasty woman, who was continuously lunging at him, “How dare I touch you? How dare you lay a finger on me? You’re not worthy of attacking a noble. Yes, I’m unclean, impure, unworthy, but you’re ten times worse if you think that you’re applying any of that to a mere human. Ten years ago I would have had you by the throat- now? You won’t get a chance to take one breath before you regret it.”
Violet watched and flinched back as Sebastian stepped in front of her. She then went to stand up to Vivian with Ciel. She stood next to him weakly.
Vivian just gave a laugh. “Protecting her? You shouldn’t love her, she is too different from you.” She glared at them.
