His Butler's Daughter chapter 18The night after Jason proposed to Francine, Ciel refused to leave his daughter by herself, and when Sebastian had a free moment he would join them. In their eyes their daughter had never seemed more fragile. Francine didn't mind though, she couldn't have her parents there for her forever, so she wanted to enjoy it now.
6 months passed and after Francine properly healed, Ciel and Fran stood outside as they watched Sebastian finish the packing and boarding, everyone was ready to leave.
Francine, in a frilly an lovely blue dress, turned to her mother.
"Do we have to leave?"
"For now. Perhaps one day we will return. I have business in Paris to handle, which could take awhile. Besides, at the moment London has more than its fair share of horrible memories." Ciel said staring at the house as well, Francine placing her hand on the place of her abdomen which now contained a scar.
"You were very brave. I want to give you something, Franny."
"I want you to have my family ring."
His Butler's Daughter chapter 17As Francine walked up to the stone table and onto the symbol carved into the top of it, Ciel screamed punching the force field as hard as his fists could do. Sebastian constantly trying to break through screaming Latin spells when he wasn't screaming for their daughter, tears in his eyes.
Mallie's eyes were full of nothing but tears, she couldn't say Fran's name anymore so all she did was scream and scream hitting and kicking it as well.
Cealia was having a panic attack laying on the ground horrified by the images around her... They all knew what this was. It was either the end of the world, or the end of Francine. In that moment, Cealia couldn't pick which one was worse as she rolled in the ground screams fallen on deaf ears.
Even Claude and Alois were doing what they could. Grell even tried to use his scythe to chop into it and Ronald shouted trying to get through to the girl inside.
Jason was begging and pleading and shouting his love for her trying with all the strength in the worl
His Butler's Daughter chapter 16Everyone woke up to a harsh earthquake and a red sky. There was no longer rain, there was only lightning. Everyone ran into the living room after hurriedly getting dressed.
The music Francine knew so well, since infancy, played throughout the mansion... Except now played by an organ in a darker tempo, and this time she knew everyone could hear it.
Screams were heard everywhere as everyone grabbed a weapon of some sort, ready to fight for their lives. And as they saw a crater outside their home begin to open and fill with lava spreading into town, all sorts of ugly creatures climbing out attacking people. They knew it was time. They all rushed out. Except one.
Francine was frozen stiff as she looked down the hall and saw Hannah. With two eyes. She looked to her friends and family fighting their way into town, wondering how they couldn't notice she wasn't with them.
"They think they see you. Just an illusion that I gave them. Your plans today are a little more important than fighting cre
His Butler's Daughter chapter 15The day had been slow, barely anyone spoke. Meyrin, for the first time, didn't break a dish, Bardroy and Finny didn't cook or do anything, and amazingly... Tanaka was normal the whole day.
The thunder and rain was at its worse, only a hair away from a hurricane it seemed.
Alois was dead silent as he did his best to console Mallie, who weeped lightly all day. Cealia sat on the couch, her head in her hands, wishing for the next day to never come.
Grell, Ronald, and Yahmada continued guarding the perimeter while Claude, Jason, and Sebastian rested. Their shift taking being extremely out of place and odd.
This day was so horrible, even the best butlers in the world had been effected.
Francine just sat with her mother in the library, humming the music lightly, hoping that'll make it stay away.
"I would like to talk to you. No matter what happens tomorrow... I want you to hear this."
"When I first found out I was pregnant... I was terrified. I didn't wan
His Butler's Daughter chapter 14Two days. It was all they had left. Two days. Since Jason already claimed the night before for themselves, Mallie claimed the night after that. It was as if they were children again.
Just a nice sleepover between best friends. That's what Mallie wanted to believe. That it was just a good old time, like any other... But she knew the real reason she was here. She knew because she had saw it with her own eyes a year before. In two days Francine will die, or the world will end and everyone will die. To Mallie, it was the last time she'd truly have her best friend.
She watched as Francine chatted, as if nothing was wrong, Mallie was only half listening though. She remembered Yahmada's advice. To be nice, to not fight with her or think of what's to come. We just don't have the time for it anymore.
Mallie looked to her best friend and asked politely, running her fingers through her hair.
"Francine do you have a hair pin I could borrow?"
"I think so, hold on."
As Francine rummaged through her
His Butler's Daughter chapter 13Francine looked at herself in the mirror. Her seventeen year old body, she studied everything about herself in the mirror. This would be the last time she saw herself as a virgin.
She called for Jason, and he walked into her room seeing her in a dark blue loose kimono hanging off her shoulders slightly. A gift from Lau for her seventeenth birthday, a few months before.
"Yes, my lady?" Jason said resisting a blush.
Francine stood and walked past him, closing and locking the door before looking to him.
"This is an order. Sit on my bed."
Jason did as told. She walked to him, a blush coming to her face as she sat beside him and kissed him deeply. Jason looked at her his eyes filled with lust, but quickly held her by her shoulders away from him.
"W-what's wrong!" Francine said.
"Frannie, I love you. And I want you so bad-"
"Then prove it~"
"I can't... I don't want our first time to be because of..." The world ending. That was what he was going to say. Francine was honestly hurt.
His Butler's Daughter chapter 12It was November 3rd. It was only 9 days away now from the end of the world.
Ever since the vision, everyone had been clued in and stayed at the Phantomhive mansion, all looking for a way, a break through, anything to save the world and Francine.
Francine, Cealia, and Mallie were all outside doing combat training, except in a way it was more serious, more intense. Because now they knew there was a reason to train.
Grell, Ronald, Claude, Alois, Jason, Yahmada, Sebastian, and Ciel were all in the library looking up every spell every prophesy every last thing they could find.
Ciel decided to take a break and went to his office. He sat in his chair and looked out to see the girls training an the sky turn grey. The girls stopped and looked to the sky. It began to rain. Ciel placed his face in his hands. He always knew there was a reason he hated the rain.
Ciel began crying. He didn't need to look to know Sebastian was standing behind him.
"My lord. Why are you crying?"
"What if we can't do i
