Chapter 7: Kanojo no Shitsuji, Interrogation
Your __(eye color) eyes blinked open twice as you found yourself not in the usual mansion. You remembered how you acquired a room in this particular inn and last night's events. You stared at the ceiling as Kanako's dead body flashed in your mind. That's right. Your older sister was gone.You turned your head to the side, laying your left arm over your eyes. You refused to think on it any longer, but that didn't mean you were going to forget her.
"Ohayou gozaimasu, My Lady." You heard Sebastian say as you removed your arm from your face, looking to see him by the small table near the corner. He was pouring a hot liquid into a cup then setting it beside a few plates which consisted of your breakfast.
"Ah, ohayou." you replied back, sitting up as you rubbed your left eye. You saw the mark on your hand, reminding you of the contract you and Sebastian shared.
'There's no pain.' You had expected it to be sore from the amount of agony you experienced.
"For today's breakfast I prepared Ceylong Tea along with three croissants each containing a flavor of strawberry jam, honey, and butter." 
"Arigato," you were going to need to get used to him treating you like his master, "I'm going to use the bathroom first and I'll come back."
Once you returned, Sebastian was still standing, but he pulled out the chair when you approached the table. You discussed your plans for today, returning to the mansion being the first task to complete before everything else. You needed money if you wished to go out into town today. Besides, you didn't know how long it would be before you were allowed inside Randolf's home. You finished breakfast quickly, wanting to get what you needed before it was too late.
"Since I do not have any money for a carriage, we will have to walk." You sighed, knowing your way to the mansion from previous travels into London.
"Yes, if you truly wish to waste over an hour and a half." Sebastian responded with a smile. "There are other methods to arriving at your destination."
"Eh? How? Other than a carriage, I know you can take a car, but as I said before, we have no money." 
"Then I guess there really is no other way in getting there in less than an hour and a half."
What was he trying to say? That there was another way other than a carriage and car? It was true you didn't want to waste time walking there and if there was a better option, you would take it.
You stopped walking as a thought hit you, turning back to look at the tall demon.
"Can you get us there faster?"
"If you order it, I can."
"Then let's go. Take us to the mansion."
He bowed slightly before lifting you up in his arms and running down the path you were leading the two of you. His speed was so fast that to bystanders, he looked like a black blur, leaving a small gust of wind. The faces of people and buildings were being meshed together, unable to see anything with clarity. You looked forward, knowing if you tried to focus on the blurry surroundings, you might get sick. You weren't used to traveling at this pace. When you decided to open your eyes again, you were already at the mansion.
"They're still here." You noticed a few carriages scattered around the front lawn and a number of Scotland Yard talking among themselves. You forgot that they started investigating the house yesterday.
"We're going to need to sneak in carefully and quietly. If we're caught, we'll look suspicious."
"Understood." Your butler jumped from the tree he was standing on towards your window. Your heart was pounding as you opened the window to your old room. Flashes of the police coming through that door and catching you increased your anxiety, preventing you from focusing. You needed to control your imagination. All you needed was the money you kept in your secret place. The cash was from Randolf's servants, each of them having given you little from their paychecks to help in case you managed to escape. You would have to thank them once you got yourself settled.
It looks like everything was the way it was when Randolf attacked you, meaning that the Yard haven't been upstairs yet. You quickly went to where your main objective was, seizing it the moment you saw the pounds. 
"All right, it's time to check the upstairs! Search every room, just like how we did to the downstairs yesterday. Document and take pictures of anything you see." You heard one of the Yard's voice as footsteps were making their way up the stairs. You stood up, Sebastian taking you in his arms and forming into a blur, leaving no evidence of anyone being in that room.
You were set down to your feet after landing by the entrance of England's capital city. You first wanted to shop for some clothes, not knowing how long you were going to stay in that inn. After exiting one of the many clothing stores, you accidentally bumped into someone and thankfully Sebastian was behind you to prevent you from falling.
"I'm sorry! Are you all right?" you asked, looking to see that it was a boy with dark, blue-gray hair. His physical appearance was that of a child, but his expensive attire displayed his social status.
"I'm fine." His butler dusted off whatever invisible dirt that may have attached itself onto his master's clothes. You noticed that his hat was beside your feet, picking it up and handing it to the boy after using your hand to clean it.
"That's good. Here is your hat, little one." You smiled gently as the blue boy's eye twitched.
"Please refrain from using that term to call my master. It displeases him very much." His butler said and noticing from his accent that he, too, was of the same country as you.
"Okay, I'm sorry, young child." You did not know his name so you called him by what you believed his age to be. If he were older, you could address him as 'mister', but since he is too young to have that title, you chose something that you thought was more appropriate.
"Do not dare mock me. I am Ciel Phantomhive, the current head of the Phantomhive family." He gave you a hard look, placing both of his hands on his short cane to exhibit his authority.  He disliked being called a child, feeling as if people viewed him as someone below them.
"I'm sorry if you felt offended, but I am not mocking you in any way. Your status might be of a wealthy nobleman, but your age is still of a young child. I did not know your name so I didn't know what to call you. However, if you wish, I will call you by your name." You explained kindly, giving him a smile that posed no threat. Ciel scoffed, taking his hat as he excused himself, telling you that he couldn't waste anymore time conversing and that he had a schedule to follow.
"Have a good day, Ciel." You received nothing, the little one not used to people talking to him without purposely insulting him. Most of the time when people mention his age, it was only to offend him, never taking him seriously. However, with you, your answer was innocent and factual. As Sebastian watched the little boy leave, he assessed his soul, finding that if shaped the right way, he too, could become a worthy meal. But compared to you, it wasn't as appealing. Sebastian's eyes were solely on you now.
'What a brat.' Sebastian thought, remembering that prideful attitude of the Phantomhive member.
"My lady, do you wish for me to teach that boy some manners?" Sebastian asked as you turned to him.
"No, it's fine. You don't need to," you shook your head, "anyway, let's continue our shopping. There are still a few things that I need to buy."
You returned to the inn once finished with your errands, Sebastian putting away the boxes and bags neatly in one corner of the room.
"My lady, it is almost lunch time, shall I start making preparations?" He asked, seeing you sit at the table where you had your breakfast.
"I'll eat in a few minutes. I need to make plans now that I'm free and it's best if you are here to help," you glanced at him then gave him a small smile, "but I am a little bit thirsty."
Sebastian nodded, leaving the room to gather some beverages from the kitchen of the inn. Normally, room service would be used, but since he is available, he was a much better choice. When he returned, he saw his master with a pen and papers, writing quickly what came to mind. He presented your tea, pouring the substance carefully into a cup as he set it down in front of you. You thanked him, taking a sip after blowing on it several times.
"As you know, finding my siblings is one of the top priorities at the moment. I was thinking of visiting Randolf's cell to interrogate him about my brothers and sisters. I'm hoping we could accomplish this before tomorrow. We also need to figure out where we-" Your head shot up from your paper and towards the door after hearing a few knocks. You looked at Sebastian as if expecting an answer, but it seemed that he, too, was curious as to who was at the door. Before you got up to answer, he swiftly made it to the door.
"Yes? Is there anything I can help you with?" Sebastian made sure to keep the door open enough to show himself, but blocked out his master for safety purposes. He blinked once, recognizing the guests from before.
"Who is it, Sebastian-kun?"
"It is the butler and little boy from this morning." The red eye man smiled, widening the entrance to allow the guests into the room.
"Good afternoon, Ciel-kun, Butler-san." Ciel heard you greet him and his servant, the blue haired master giving Sebastian a look for his 'little boy' comment before turning his attention to you.
"Good afternoon. If you're wondering how I knew you were staying here, I got the information from the Yard."
"Why did you ask them where I'm staying?" You watched Ciel take a chair in front of you, both butlers beside their respective masters.
"Perhaps the little boy is becoming attached to my lady." Sebastian said as he poured tea for your guest, having been given a simple tea set from the kitchen.
"Don't make ridiculous assumptions!" Ciel retorted, a hint of pink dusting his cheeks as his butler held back a small smile at his young master's reaction. You giggled quietly, finding the idea funny yet adorable.
"Anyway, what is your real reason for being here?"
"You are connected to a very special and complicated case. You and many others have been kidnapped from Japan and brought here. Those others included your siblings, which brings me to my first reason for seeing you." He closed his eyes briefly, "Your sister has been found dead a few hours ago."
You looked puzzled, wondering how he knew of your sister's death. As you hear Ciel give the details of her location, you were already familiar with his information, however, you chose to remain clueless. It would complicate things if they discovered you have been aware of Kanako's murder.
"After our first meeting, there was a man who was in the middle of the street, pleading for someone to save him. He was saying something about a demon going to hurt him? Anyway, I managed to question him and he's confessing about being invovled with the mass killing and kidnapping of the Japanese four years ago. He also said that he held one captive at his place, having been put in charge of your sister by his boss. I also found out that his boss was your captor."
"Wait. How can you have access to these kinds of information? And why do you seem so concerned?" Just what was a young boy trying to do with this heavy case?
"As you are already aware, I am Ciel Phantomhive, the owner of the Phantomhive company. I not only run that business, but I personally work under the Queen with difficult legal matters."
"He is famously known as 'The Queen's Watchdog' and because of his relationship with the Queen, he is above the Yard." His butler added, clarifying his master's association with this particular case.
"My other reason for being here is to ask who exactly are you?" Ciel leaned forward, resting his chin on his folded hands. "For you to not be killed like the others, just what makes you so special that you have to be kept alive?"
You kept a straight face, staring at Ciel before reaching underneath the collar of your outfit. You pulled out a medallion necklace, wrapping the chains around your fingers as you presented the precious item to the Phantomhive boy.
"I am ___(full name), the third eldest and the 28th princess of the ___(last name) family."
Ciel controlled his surprised expression, trying to look unimpressed.
"So, that man wasn't lying." Ciel muttered softly, glancing at his butler. His eyes were back to you then holding out his hand underneath your necklace, silently asking if he could see it. You let it land carefully in his palm, the Earl examining the jewelery.
Sebastian was not expecting you to tell the boy that little secret you have been keeping from the demon. Of course Sebastian was already aware of your social status and waited for you to admit it. He never asked so that was why you had never said anything.
"Tanaka, can you read this?" Ciel asked his butler, showing him the foreign characters on the medallion.
"Yes. The front is their family's symbol and the back says Lady __(y/n)'s name and title. This is proof that she is related to the Emperor of Japan."
"The emperor is your father?" He returned your necklace then you placed it back on your person.
"No. The emperor is my grandfather."
"I see." It made sense to Ciel now. Randolf and the other captors needed you and your siblings as hostages to use against the emperor. You then watch him lean back in his chair as he says, "tell me, how much do you love your husband?"
"I never considered that man as my husband. I hold no love, only hate for that kidnapper."
"Good," Ciel seemed to smirk, "because he will be severely punished for what he's done. The Yard finished investigating your mansion and we found some concerning evidence. In his office, he has a number of letters with the criminals that were involved with the attack. They are mostly updates on your people who have been brought here. However, the letters aren't what we found bothersome. In his bookshelf, there were many books that had small pouches of opium inside the pages. He had cut holes in them to use as a hiding place. Also, he had written detailed notes of plans against the Queen. Are you aware that he has been using a large quantity of opium and conspiring against our Majesty?"
"I know of the opium because he would make me buy it for him when he sent me to town. He also told me to keep it a secret or else. As for the second part, I am not aware. You say that you found his plans in his office, but he never allowed anyone in there. The few times I have been in there was to bring him tea. I never spent more than five minutes in that room."
"Hm. I see." Ciel then stood up, Tanaka helping him place his coat on his tiny body, "anyway, we'll be leaving now. You will most likely get contacted again by either me or the Yard. I am sorry for what Mr. Bowen has done to you, but he will receive major punishment because I know that this situation will hurt Her Majesty."
"Yes, I am counting on everyone to do what is right." You nodded, watching Sebastian open the door for the two. "Take care, Ciel-kun, Tanaka-san."
Ciel tipped his hat slightly as Tanaka gave a small bow as they went to pass through the door.
"Do have a good afternoon," Sebastian said before they fully exited, "oh, and I am sure that Princess __(y/n) will forgive your rude and childish behavior from our first meeting." Ciel glared up at the tall servant as your demon continued to smile.
"Hmph!" Ciel walked out quickly, head raised slightly as if to remind the butler of his place. However, there was a small tinge of red on his cheeks, indicating slight embarrassment for his manners from before. Although he was the head of the Phantomhive family and company, being a nobleman was still beneath royalty.
"I guess we will be expecting to see him and the Yard often." You said, returning to your planning for your next action.
"Yes and I will make sure to be prepared for their visit." Sebastian began to put away Ciel's tea.
"So, that was what you were doing that time, My Lady."
"It was during our second meeting in Randolf's office when I saw you with the books."
"Ah, yes, I remember. I did it, in hopes that if he ever did get caught, he could not easily get himself out of jail. At that time, I didn't know how he would get caught, but I prepared myself anyway." You then smiled at Sebastian. "And I think it's working just fine. Thanks to you saving me after Randolf brutally attacked me, no one is going to believe him that you appeared. The Yard will think that he is hallucinating due to the opium. And those plans against the Queen, I've studied his handwriting for a very long time that I was able to copy it perfectly. His 'addiction' and 'disloyalty' to the Queen will make it very difficult for him to be released from prison. I want to make sure that he stays there."
"How clever of my master." Sebastian seemed impressed by the fact that humans can be somewhat intelligent. It was amazing to him at how much effort humans put in order to survive. Quite amusing actually.
"And you're clever yourself. Having my sister's captor confess everything he's done."
"I was only following your orders."
"My orders?" You blinked, not recalling ever making that request. Your butler explains how you spoke before you fell asleep and it was his duty to follow all your wishes.
"Eheh, oops. I hope I didn't cause too much trouble." You blushed out of embarrassment, wondering if you said anything else in your slumber.
"Such a task was not difficult at all, however, do be careful of what you wish for." Sebastian closed one eye, grinning slightly at you.
'That bitch! That bitch, that bitch, that bitch!' Randolf was wide awake in his cell, too angry to be sleepy. He had no sense of time, but he could tell it was late. He was in a single, small jail cell, the only one located at the end of the hallway. He was standing in front of the bars, gripping them tightly and using all of his strength in an attempt to hopefully break or loosen them.
'It's all that bitch's fault! When I get out of here, I'll make sure she's dead!' He roughly pulled at the steel bars, letting out a low growl as he thought of you. Randolf felt a cold chill caress his body and caused him to shiver.
"Hello, my dear husband." He turned around, hearing a familiar voice. There was no sincerity behind the voice, sounding as if it was mocking him. The room became darker, Randolf looking for the source. His heart raced slightly, feeling as if he knew what was to come. Before him, there was a pool of dark shadows circling constantly as he sees something rising from it. There were two people, one holding the second in their arms.
"It's you!" His back was against the bars, pointing at the pair.
"Yes, it is. I've come to ask you a few questions." You were gently set on your feet, walking towards Randolf.
"I'm not going to tell you anything! Especially not after those lies you told the Yard! Me? An opium addict and anarchist?! When I get out of here I swear I-"
"You won't be getting out of here for a VERY long time. Do you really think they will let someone who is a danger to the Queen roam freely in the streets?"
"You piece of-" Before he could lunge towards you, Sebastian had grabbed his face, keeping you a safe distance from Randolf. He squeezed slightly at his head, Randolf frantically trying to pull his face away from his grip.
"You will not be allowed to move any further than this unless, of course, My Lady says otherwise."
"It's all right, let him go." You glanced at Sebastian as you moved a bit closer to Randolf. "Where are the rest of my siblings?"
"As if I'd tell you." You heard him say and you clenched your jaw tightly, becoming very impatient. You suddenly jammed your forearm against his throat, the back of his head smashing hard against the cell bars. His painful yelp was cut off as you continued to leave your arm where it was, giving him a harsh glare.
"I have no time to waste with you so just answer my question and we can get on with our lives." You slowly advanced your arm, hearing him cough due to the blockage of his trachea. Sebastian watched as you handled Randolf, curious as to how you would get your information. Randolf began to gasp out words making you retract your limb slightly to better hear him.
"Sister....your sister is at Floral Road...the house closest to the forest and-"
"She's already dead. I want to know about the others."
"What do you mean she's already dead? She can't be! We need her alive!" Randolf had not been aware of the news of his underling's mistake. You grabbed him by the front of his shirt, roughly shaking him against the bars once more.
"Forget how she died. Just know that your men screwed up. Now tell me where are the rest of my brothers and sisters?"
"I only know your sister and two of your brothers! Your younger brother is in the town of Nottingham and the other is in Ipswich. The rest were taken by other people! I wasn't in charge of them!"
"Who are the people holding them captive?"
"The one in Nottingham is Dellwin and Norgales is in Ipswich."
"Who is your boss?" You deducted that there were someone else managing this operation after hearing him say he had no connections with the rest of your family.
"I don't know!" Randolf winced at the pounding pain in the back of his skull after his answer, his vision splitting into double as he blinks constantly to readjust them.
"Don't lie! How the hell do you take orders from a man that you don't know?!" You took advantage of his instability, knocking him to the floor. He didn't give you a clear answer, receiving a kick to his abdomen.
"Sorry, I don't accept that. Let's try this again." You squat beside him, "Either tell me what you know or you can experience unimaginable pain for the next few hours by my butler."
"It would be best if you could answer My Lady's questions. It is very late into the night and she needs her rest." Sebastian could see your right arm and legs shaking slightly from the trauma done by Randolf a few days ago. Your body was still recovering and was going to need more time before you were completely healed. Randolf's eyes widened as he recognizes Sebastian's face and the sinister feeling that made his body shiver with fear. He immediately responded to everything you asked, clearly afraid of Sebastian's power. Although you weren't satisfied with his answers, you got what you needed and the rest you would have to figure out yourself.
"Let's go, Sebastian."
"Yes, My Lady." Sebastian stood behind you, hands placed on your shoulders as you both were engulfed in a whirl of darkness. As Randolf faded from your vision, you heard him screaming for the guards but you trusted that your butler had taken precaution.
"Do not mind him screaming. He can yell all he wants, but no one will be aware of our visit." Sebastian had placed something of a barrier around his cell, blocking out yours and Sebastian's voices to other the prisoners. Luckily, there weren't too many other criminals near him, making it easier for the two of you to be unseen. Everyone would think that Randolf was going insane. Your butler had also made it where the guards would be kept busy during your interrogation with Randolf.
"You seem displeased with Randolf's inquiry." Sebastian pointed out as he helped you settle into bed.
"I am," you let out a sigh as you sat against the pillows, "I still feel very confused, however, I am glad that I was able to find the location of my brothers."
"What is it that you are perplexed about?"
"His boss. He gave me the name Modred, but I know that is only an alias. I'm sure that 'Modred' has made proper precautions and preparations so that he wouldn't be easily traced."
"It seems that you are thinking ahead also, My Lady." Sebastian smiled, surprised by how you had the same thoughts as him. Usually, if it were another human, he would be the one having to do all the thinking.
"I'm just being careful." You closed your __(e/c) eyes, pulling the blanket closer to your chin and finally let your body and mind rest for the night.
As soon as you had awoken, you refused breakfast, wanting to head to Nottingham in search of your brother. As Sebastian handed you your jacket, you heard three soft thuds against the door.
"I am very sorry, but we will be heading out soon. Please come back tomorrow when My Lady's schedule is more flexible." Sebastian said after opening the door, finding two men dressed in white suits each designed beautifully. One was leaning against the door frame, arms across his body as the taller male was standing straight behind him. The serious man had blonde short hair with a distinct, tiny mole on his left side of his mouth. The other had a unique hairstyle that you would be able to easily remember. He had silver hair, chin length at the front but long strands at the base of his head.
"Well, your lady is going to need to make her schedule flexible now. We have a message to deliver to her from Her Majesty herself." The shorter of the two men held an envelope between his pointer and middle fingers, clearly showing the Queen's signature seal pressed into the back.
 I tried to google the typical English breakfast in the 1800s and I got a bunch of different answers. So I just went with what they would have back in that time frame.
 In the anime and manga, they showed a car being used.
And if you look at the previous chapter, they have cell phones? O_o
 Pounds is England's currency...apparently they were also called shillings and pence? buuut let's go with pounds lol
 C'monn you know you need some Ciel in your life! lol Ermm, I'm not gonna get into details with his background story, but here's what I made up. His parents did die in a fire but Tanaka managed to save him and he was never taken by that crazy cult. And obviously, he never made a contract with Sebastian. Ciel isn't gonna play that much of a heavy role in this story, but i do need him from time to time.
 I wiki-ed Sebastian's powers/abilities and he seems to have quite a lot.
