I didn't understand anything. Zero suffered and suffered for four years. What were you thinking, all by yourself? He loathes vampires so much, he wants to kill them all. All this time, Zero wanted to kill himself too.

I long for him.... but I understand. There's a line that vampires and humans can't cross.

Being like this makes me feel like we've returned to the old days somewhat. Yeah. Zero is Zero. Even if you are a vampire now.

Both of us understand, but neither of us will say it. It's a sin to keep a vampire alive by offering my own blood as bait. We are doing something that is forbidden. No one must find out about this.

Kaname-sama.... I love you! I love you! You are the begining of my world and everything in that world. So even if I couldn't remember my past, I wasn't scared.

I will do anything if it´s for Kaname-sama.

A glimpse of what I saw earlier was something that was so distant from me. For Kaname-sama.... And yet right now, this man is lying here in my arms. It´s such a strange feeling.

The world is dyed with the color of blood. It will never be able to go back to the way it was before

I will keep running away so Zero has a reason to live.

The Headmaster talks about the Night Class like they're good vampires who support his pacifism, but I don't trust them. I won't let my guard down. I'm cooperating so I can find the most effective way to kill those beasts in human form.
