"Of all days, he asks for a new cane now." Sebastian chuckles to himself as he makes his way down the dull streets of London.
Today was an especially dreary day, with the grey sky and the slight drizzle. His young master's previous cane had been broken due to the manor's gardener's idiocy, and the Earl had requested a replacement immediately. The young man sighed as he continued. Not a human was to be seen in the streets, possibly avoiding such weather. The park he was walking alongside even seemed affected by such, seeing as it didn't look green at all now. Just dull.
However, at first glance, it didn't seem that it bothered Sebastian, and the one glancing would he right. Due to his nature, he didn't feel bothered by the Earth's natural weather patterns at all. It was just extremely boring.
He then felt a small impact hit him on his right leg, making him pause his further movement. Any normal person would've fallen onto the ground, but..well...Sebastian Michaelis wasn't very normal.
He directed his red wine gaze to the cause of the impact and was greeted with a young girl with large (e/c) eyes and (h/l) (h/c) locks, who was wearing a bright smile upon her face. "Hello, mister!" Her voice indicated she was in a elated mood. "Sorry for bumping into you!" She stepped back a bit with a giggle.
His eyebrows had risen. He certainly wasn't expecting a child
to be so chipper in such weather. He wore a cat-like smile and kneeled down to her level. "Young lady, may I ask whatever are you doing in this weather? Where are your guardians?"
The young girl giggles again. "Probably back at home! Oh, and I was outside playing tag!"
"Oh?" Sebastian scanned his surroundings and found no other human in sight. "Who were you playing this game with?"
She turns around and points in the opposite direction. "With those two guys!"
She was correct. Dashing out of the nearby ally were two, bulky men dressed in colors as dull as the sky. They stopped abruptly when they noticed Sebastian and the young girl with him and doubled over panting. "F...Finally!" One gasped.
She giggled once again, catching Sebastian's attention once more. "They're chasing me, y'see! And I ran and ran for a long time, but they couldn't catch me!"
"Is that so?" Sebastian mumbled and aimed his gaze at the two, speaking louder. "Might I inquire as to what the two of you were doing?"
The shorter one regained his lost breath first. "Just here doin' business, low class!" He barks. "That girl you got's got a large ransom on her!"Seems so,
Sebastian thought darkly. Based on her attire, she seems to be apart of a noble family. I shall have to notify the young master about more trafficking in the underworld.
The larger one withdrew his pocketknife from his trench coat pocket. "Yeah, so fork her over. We won't have to cut up your disgusting face!"
He raised an eyebrow, unamused. "I find that immeasurably insulting."
"See?" The girl giggles again. "They're just teasing you! My father always said that if someone ever teased me for my looks, then I should let them know who's more...more..." She scrunched her face in frustration.
Sebastian chuckled. "'Superior'?"
She laughed. "Yes, that's it!"
"Alright, enough of this bullshit!" The two men begin advancing. "Time to hand her over! It'd be a shame to find your body in the river, guy."
"Excuse me, gentlemen
," Sebastian stands to his full height, making the men step back a bit. "I believe that I am fed up with this situation, seeing as I am already late to retrieve my master's gift." He chuckles. "I suppose I'll have to make this quick." He turns back to the girl and stares into her (e/c) eyes once more. "I know it is not my place to ask you of this, young lady. But I must ask that you do me a favor."
She nods. "O..Okay."
"Do you see that tree over there?" He gestures to the nearest large one with a wide trunk. "I need you to go behind that tree. And when I say, you must count down by five, and I shall make these men disappear."
Her eyes widened and a bright smile returned. "Like magic, sir?"
"Like magic." He grins.
She bounded over behind the tree and out of view. Satisfied, he turned back to the two men, who seemed skeptical. "Alright, young lady," He calls. "Are you ready?"
Sebastian's eyes glow a bright fuchsia and he bares his sharp canines. "Start
He rushes up to the two men, taking one by the head and twisting it, causing an unearthly crack to arise from the action.
He feels a small, yet sharp pain digging into his ribcage. The larger of the men had stabbed him with the picket knife. Sebastian grunts, swiftly pulling it out. The man opened his mouth to scream, but Sebastian quickly silenced him with a stab to the stomach.
He proceeded to pull the knife out of the mans gut and, while covering the man's mouth, drove the blade through his jaw. Careful not to get any trace of blood on himself.
Gathering up the bodies and with inhuman speed, he had planted the corpses into the tree's leaves to collect and dispose of later. Sebastian leaped back onto the ground and swiftly turned, making sure to face the tree once more.
"One!" The girl jumped out from behind the trunk and looked around with wide eyes. "Wow! You did
make them disappear!"
Sebastian grins. "If I couldn't make two people disappear, then what kind of magician would I be?"
She giggles. "A bad one!" Trotting up to him, she averts her eyes to the ground. "Uhm...excuse me, but...do you know of a big, brown mansion? It has big white pillars?"
"Ah, you are a long way from your home, then?" Sebastian asks. "I can see why. You have ran quite a distance." He bows respectively. "I shall ensure you get home safely."
"You will?" She brightens. "Thank you, sir!"
He chuckles. "Please, call me Sebastian."
"Sebastian..." She mumbles, and then giggles. "My name's (F/n) (L/n)!"
"Ah, your surname is (L/n)?" He asks. "Well then, I shall be getting you home as soon as possible." Sebastian gently takes her small hand and continues his way down the street with the young girl beside him.
