Title: “Invading the Association” From a balcony, some hunters are saying that Kaname has arrived. A hunter wanted to attack but another hunter protested that the ‘higher-ups’ told them that they should let those purebloods kill each other. Someone asks if it is Yagari. Another one protests that it is their job to deter an invasion. To their shock, Kaname suddenly goes up to where they are. The hunters shout not to hesitate for it is their job and it has been decided that the head of Kuran is their enemy. They attack and Kaname just pass through them and glared at them which made them fall unconscious. [It is like One Piece’s Haki. Since Kaname pities them for not being that useful], he picks up one of the hunters and uses his head to smash open the door. Then, he apologizes to them for using them to get in. ^^; Inside, Kaname can felt the presence of his ex-beloved where they’ve hidden her heart. He notices his sword is reacting. Then, Zero thrashed the floor [above Zero] to get to Kaname. He orders his Bloody Rose to get Kaname. Somehow, Kaname manages to block the vines. Zero says that Kaname and Bloody Rose seem to know each other. Kaname touches a bit of the cutey vine and says that it is the first thing he made, using the ‘deposit’[/beloved’s heart]. Thinking that whatever past they have no longer matters, Zero tells Kaname that right now, he is its master and ‘I’m’ the master of myself. Bloody Rose’s vine starts to intertwine around Kaname. Zero tells Bloody Rose to drink Kaname’s blood. Preparing to fight back, Kaname says that if Zero can’t become his weapon, well, he won’t let Zero get rid of him there, either. At the Association’s building door, Ruka and Kain are standing guard. Hunters are commenting on their disbelief that a pureblood is suddenly starting a fight in the Association. Ruka tells them that Kaname doesn’t plan on making the Association as the enemy but they can’t let them go through. A hunter says that won’t convince them since this is hunter’s district and they are from a reputable hunter clan. Then, Yuuki has arrived.
Inside, Kaien is lecturing the other hunters over not doing anything and just waiting for Kaname and Sara to kill each other. He reminds them about protecting their place from invasion and doing their job. This made the hunters start moving. Yagari tells Kaien that the one who must think of one’s job ought to be Kaien for letting purebloods hide there especially Sara who is involved with those secret blood tablets. Kaien says that he knows but it is not good to instigate everyone and forget one’s duty. He reminds Yagari that his duty is the same. Yagari just quietly glares and leaves. Meanwhile, Kaname is busy blocking the vines coming from Bloody Rose. Kaname complains that it just won’t end. Then, Zero fires a beast-like vine at Kaname. Kaname thrashes it and grabs it. Kaname asks Zero if he knows why the source of power, the pureblood’s blood, is considered a ‘poison’. Well, that is because no matter whose body it is in, that blood’s master is still a pureblood. As the vines intertwine him again, Kaname tells Zero not to forget that even if he [Zero] seems to plan get used to it by using force[/strong will] to suppress it but within Zero’s body also has his [Kaname] poison. This seems to mildly surprise Zero just as he goes in to attack Kaname with his bare hands. Outside, it seems that Yuuki has beaten up the hunters outside. She wipes the blood from her cheek and calls out to her senpai-s. Stunned Ruka says that Yuuki didn’t even hesitate to stab[/injure] herself and why won’t she just keep on sleeping. Kain pushes Sara aside and tells her that he’ll stop Yuuki. Yuuki says that it is simple, because she has to go to that person [Kaname]’s side. Ruka reminds Kain not to hurt Yuuki. Yuuki insists that she will pass through so that Ruka can free herself. She asks Ruka to please give that kind person, who depends on her [Ruka], back to her [Yuuki]. Suddenly, they hear something crashing above. Some debris is falling as well as Kaname who is strangling Zero. Kaname bends close to Zero and asks if this is already enough. Yuuki tries to go to them but Ruka has beaten her to it and got in between the two guys when it seems that Kaname is going to stab Zero with his sword. Kain quickly leaves Yuuki to go to his beloved Ruka who is lying on the ground with Zero. The blurb says that Ruka protected Zero.
