You looked to the picture he was pointing at and nodded.
“That does look similar doesn’t it.” You mused, “I had a look at it this morning in the mirror.”
Kiri pressed his nose into the crook of your neck and kissed you softly before squeezing you tenderly in his arms.
“So what does it mean?” He asked as he tilted his head to the side and gazed lovingly at your side profile.
You pointed to the sentence below the picture of the curse mark and began to read bits out loud.
“Each chain commonly represents a lover or person which the Succubus must feed off.” You read softly, pausing as you let that sink in. “Wait… am I the Succubus now?!” You asked in a harsh whisper.
“Uh… it appears so?” Kirishima confirmed regretfully, “but don’t worry, you won’t be one once the curse has been lifted.”
Your ears drooped, flattening out to the side of your head as dejection set in.
“But I don’t want to be a Succubus.” You whispered sadly.
“Y-Y/N, please don’t be sad.” Kiri uttered quickly, “it’s ok, let’s keep reading to find out how to fix it.”
You nodded glumly and kept reading, sliding your finger along the paper as your eyes read the words.
“The person to be fed off must be different for each chain link.” You read, “and once the ‘feeding’ session has been completed, one chain link of the curse mark will fade and disappear completely.”
“Hold on.” Kiri whispered, suddenly understanding what was going on. “So you will need to uh… feed… from…. 5 other chains? I mean, people?… Guys?”
“Oh no.” You whispered, “no, no, no, I don’t want to do it with 5 other people! Maybe it will be different for us and we can do it 5 times and the chains will fall off one by one?”
“I’m not sure if that will work.” Kiri said sorrowfully, “but what about me, was I one of the chains? And what of the padlock?”
You kept reading, getting to the part about the padlock.
“Padlocks can be unlocked by anyone the Succubus feeds off- including past lovers, and once the act is completed and the curse is lifted, the victim of the curse will feel an extra burst of euphoria towards that person; oftentimes proclaiming that they are indebted to that person and will be with them for the rest of their life.” You read.
“So if I was chain 1,” Kiri mused, “then I can also unlock the padlock if I’m there when it’s time for it to be unlocked?” He asked, rubbing his cheek against your soft white ear.
“I think so? You replied, “I think all the chains need to be removed first though, before the padlock can be unlocked.”
“That makes sense.” Kiri whispered, kissing the tip of your soft little ear. “Well I’ll be there all the way, regardless. I don’t want to miss out on a lifetime with you.”
You purred loudly, rubbing your head against his cheek as he continued.
“I’m ok, as long as I help you find the people to feed off.” He whispered, poking his tongue out a little and licking the tip of your ear. “I want to make sure you don’t fall into the wrong hands. And I’ll be there when the padlock is ready to be unlocked.”
You turned you head and looked back at him with a grateful smile on your face.
“I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive boyfriend.” You whispered lovingly as your lips met his.
His arms tightened around you as you rested your head back against his chest and continued to kiss him as he sat behind you.
“So when do you think another uh… attack, will come?” Kiri asked hesitantly after he pulled back from the kiss.
“Don’t know.” You said morosely, “according to this book they can range from hours to days between ‘needs to feed’.”
“Oh… so we just have to have someone on standby then?” Kiri asked, his passionate red eyes looking intently into yours.
“Well… That’s one way to put it.” You replied sheepishly, “but maybe you might be able to fullfill the need the next time I need to feed?” You commented.
“I’m here, whenever, you just call and I’ll come running.” He promised, “that’s the manly thing to do.”
“You’re amazing.” You sighed happily, turning where you sat and snuggling into his front while he cuddled you some more, fluffy tail waving happily.
“Y/N, we should probably get going to breakfast, then off to work!” Kiri whispered suddenly, “I don’t want to have to cut our breakfast date short.”
“Oh you’re right,” you replied, “let’s go, I’m starving!”
After breakfast you headed to Fatgum’s office, hand in hand, but stopped holding hands as you entered the building – you were trying to be as professional as possible afterall.
“How are you feeling today, Y/N?” Tamaki asked shyly as you entered the room.
“I’m fine, Tamaki- senpai.” You replied happily, swishing your beautiful tail back and forth.
“I’m glad.” He said softly with a blush, “I was hoping that nothing happened to you overnight.”
You glanced at Kiri from the corner of your eye then back to Tamaki.
“Nope. All good.” You said with a giant fake smile.
“Alright everybody!” Fatgum said brightly as he entered the room, “we’re patrolling today. Something easy.” He added, looking at you. “We could do with a relaxing day today after yesterday.”
“I’m fine, Fatgum.” You chirped, “I promise.”
“You’re a tough one, Timid.” He said with a broad smile on his round face, “it’s ok, we’ll have plenty more hair raising mission in the future so just enjoy today.”
“Roger.” You said with a happy grin.
15 minutes later you and Tamaki had been teamed to patrol the neighbouring streets and Tamaki was unusually quiet.
“You ok, Suneater?” You queried as you flicked your tail back and forth, tilting your little head to the side as you smiled at him with closed eyes.
He flinched at you calling him out and hung his head, his face going red as he walked beside you.
“What’s wrong?” You asked, a little concerned as your eyes opened and your smile faded
“T-T-Timid.” He whispered in a stutter, scrunching his face down further.
“Yes?” You asked, stopping momentarily.
You watched as Tamaki quickly walked over to the wall nearby and pressed his forehead against it, overwhelmed by his own nervousness.
“Suneater?” You heard Kiri call from down the road and you looked up at your boyfriend with confusion, not knowing why Tamaki was acting strange.
Just then a strong throbbing invaded your core and your hand shot to your clit.
“R-Red?! RED RIOT!” You called urgently, “p-please, help.”
Tamaki spun around and looked at you, wondering why you had suddenly called for help?
But Kiri knew immediately and ran towards you at top speed.
