Code Geass R3 - Chapter SixChapter SixLelouch looked up as Neko walked into the room, her frost-hued helmet tucked lightly beneath her arm. In one glance, he understood the exhausted triumph in her eyes."I'm in." She told him, turning and falling backwards on the hotel bed. Lelouch smirked lightly."I had no doubt you would be." He told her."I know." Neko twisted around on the bed, until she could see him, "Suzaku looked like he was going to die right there, when I told him you were coming back."Lelouch chuckled softly, "He did kill me, after all.""You should have warned him this might happen. He's strong, but he's still human. He doesn't have a Code to restart his heart."Lelouch shrugged, "He's under a Geass to survive." He pointed out.Neko turned back to look at the ceiling, "Right
""So she succeeded." C.C.'s voice ran a chill of irritation up Neko's spine, but she stayed quiet."Yes," Lelouch murmured, and Neko's eyes flew back to his. His tone was contemplative, distant; and more than a little s
Code Geass R3 - Chapter FiveChapter Five"Stain?" Neko could see that Kallen was processing things faster than any of the others. Making connections between Stain and Zero that none of the others were willing to make. Lelouch had warned her that Kallen might be the only one who knew. She had been the one to set the others' suspicions aside; to assure them that the Zero who killed the Demon King was the real one. That he had been capture, detained, while Lelouch took over and ruined the world. But he had never been certain that she believed that."Stain," Neko agreed calmly, "I am here to see your Zero."Kallen's hand itched towards her gun, "Zero is indisposed." She growled."I think he's quite free." Neko disagreed calmly, "Or are times not quite so peaceful as you've been telling us?"Kallen stared at her for a moment. Neko could see her beginning to shake.And then she had launched herself across the conference room, drawing her gun from its holster in the same instant that she fired it.Tense silence followed
Code Geass R3 - Chapter FourChapter FourNeko stood outside the gate of Ashford Academy, staring out across the dark grounds. They seemed so alien now, like they came from another time. In a way, they did. A time before she had learned the truth
before she had taken her new name.Stain. A name she had chosen for herself. A name which would be hers, as the new leader of the Black Knights. It had confused Lelouch to no end, irritated C.C., as everything Neko said seemed to. Even she could not really explain why it seemed so right. Perhaps it was because this was what she was trying to remove. The stain of boredom on the fabric of her life. The stain of corruption on the government's quilt. The stain of blood on the hands of innocents.No matter what had made her choose, it was the name that had changed her. The name that had carried her away from the life of a student. It had separated her from her friends by false death, by a white and gold mask in the image of Zero's. By a shimmering, moonlit cloak and slee
Code Geass R3 - Chapter ThreeChapter ThreeBreath rushed back into her lungs as her heart jumped to an uneven start. Air flooded coolly over her aching muscles, filling her, replenishing the life she had lost and reminding her of the life the child had given her. She was tired; her body felt like lead, her eyes would not open, her hand burned
Her hand burned?She sat bolt upright, crying out in agony as she tugged at the swiftly healing punctures that riddled her chest. Her burning hand flew up to clutch at her body, and she saw it. The scarlet insignia of Geass; the winged V shape which appeared in her eye when she played with another's mind; was burned over the back of her hand. Precisely where the dead child had touched her.I give you this Code
use it well to defend those who can not defend themselves
"What?!" She screamed, clutching at her head. She regretted it immediately, as her world spun with pain. She felt like she might tip sideways out of the bed.And then there were hands on her; on
Code Geass R3 - Chapter TwoChapter TwoThe Sunday sun rose brightly, waking Neko once more with its warmth. She groaned in irritation, turning over in her bed, stuffing her face into her pillow to hide from the scarlet light that filtered through her sleepy eyelids.And then she was knocked clear from her bed by a flying body. She cried out in shock, twisting around, still half-conscious, to grab at her attacker's hair. She pulled, hard. And then she flinched.The scream was definitely Cassie's.She sighed, pushing herself into an upright position as she released the silky curls from her grasp. Cassie had curled into a ball in her lap, sobbing softly. Gentle, Neko brushed through her curls, searching for blood."Idiot." She muttered, "I was asleep.""I
thought you were
" Cassie didn't continue.Neko brushed a hand through her own tussled brown hair, and then reached forwards and picked Cassie off the ground. She laid the breathless girl on the bed from which they had just fallen, and moved over to the
