Okay, this story was something I had in my head and I thought it would be cool. Okay I started watching Soul Eaters I thought it was really cool show and when the episode where Soul gets cut and is infected with black blood I thought 'why not do the same with Maka but with witch's blood," then I came up with this.
I don't own Soul Eater they belong to their rightful owners, A/N is Author's Notes and O.C. (if I have any) and plot are mine. In joy.
Chapter 1: The Black Rose Thorn Gang
It was a clear starry night, the moon was out and most people were enjoying it except two people. Soul and Maka were taking a ship to New York City (A/N 1) because some strange incidents were happening around the town and they were sent by Lord Death's orders to investigate.
In Lord Death’s office Soul and Maka were being briefed on their assignment. “Rumors have it that a gang has been really making a name for themselves and they were once one of the lowest gangs on the list," he told them. "I have a theory that a witch is leading this gang and giving them powers. I want you two to go there and investigate."
End of Flashback
"So Maka," Soul started, "if this group is led by a witch do you think we could beat her?"
"I'm not... sure." She said truthfully looking into the night sky.
"Well then... we'll just have to wait and see when we get there," he replied. "In the meantime would you like to dance? (A/N 2) It could get our mind off the matter until then."
He held out his hand to her and she accepted the offer. She smiled and said, "Try not to step on my feet Soul, like you always do."
He smile showing his sharp teeth and said, "Don't worry I won't. I've been practicing." For the next hour they had fun but Maka had to use her Maka Chop on Soul because he was making a pig of himself at the buffet (A/N 3). When they finally docked they went around town to investigate.
"So were should we start?" Soul asked.
"Let's walk around and ask," Maka suggested. "They're is bound to be some rumors being spread about this gang."
"Then let's get started than," He said walking away.
"Hey wait up," she said running after Soul.
They walked around the city for an hour or two. One girl told them, "You're talking about the Black Rose Thorn Gang, I'm sorry I don't know where their hang out is," one boy said "I heard that they were once a small girls gang (A/N 4), that's all I know. By the way how about a date sweet cheeks," and after that he was seeing stars because of Soul and Maka punching him in the face, he also went to see his dentist after that too (A/N 5). Other people they asked told them "Yeah I know about them but not their hang out," or "Sorry I don't know where they are," or "I do know them but not the location of their hang out. Sorry I can't be any help."
They kept walking around until Soul complained, "This is getting us nowhere fast."
"I know Soul," Maka replied, "But we still have to find The Black Rose Thorn Gang's hide out."
"Did you say The Black Rose Thorn Gang?" asked a female.
"Let me guess you heard of them but don't know where their hang out is," Soul replied in annoyance. Both him and Maka turned around to see a girl in her early twenties with raven black hair that went down to her lower back, she had emerald green eyes, her face was like a heart-shaped, and she was in good shape. She wore a white T-shirt with a flaming heart picture on it and had a red coat over it. She was wearing blue jeans and black 3 inch high-heeled boots on.
"Actually, I'm a member," she said rolling up her sleeve revealing a black rose tattoo.
"Nobody told us that members had tattoos," Maka said.
"We try to hide them from sight," said the girl.
“If you don’t mind me asking, we would like to meet your boss if that’s okay?” Maka said.
"Oh you want to join our group?" the girl asked.
"Uh... yeah," Maka just replied rubbing the back of her.
Then Soul grabbed Maka's wrist and said, "Give us a few minutes." With that he dragged her over to an alleyway to talk in privet. "What are you thinking, Maka?" he asked angrily.
"I was thinking if we tell her we want to join she'll take us to where there hang out is," she replied.
"Yeah, but if they find out were just trying to find there hide out to-" that's all he got out before Maka covered his mouth.
"They won't find out about our mission," she told him. "Not unless you shout it out loud."
"Mission?" asked a voice from behind them scaring them. They turned around to see the girl that they were talking to a few minutes ago. "What Mission? What are you talking about?"
"Uh," Soul and Maka said looking at each other.
"Are you from another gang?" She asked in an angry tone.
"No, no," Soul said waving his hands in front of his face, "We're just-uh... Maka tell her."
"What!?" asked Maka in shock. "Why me!?"
"Because," he whispered to her, "you're the smart one here."
"Wait your uniform is from D.W.M.A., isn't it?" the girl asked.
"Oh we're so busted," Soul said.
"Oh no I-uh... took it from another... girl," Maka lied poorly.
"We're really busted now," Soul muttered.
But Maka heard him. "Maka Chop!" she shouted hitting him right on top of his head knocking him on the ground.
He got back up and glared at her shouting, "Hey what was that for!?"
"You know what that was for!" she shouted back at him.
"I know why your here," the girl said.
Soul and Maka stopped and looked at her gulping. "You... You do?" they asked in unison.
"It's about the rumor about our boss and you're here to see if it's true," she said. She had hit the nail on the head and made Soul and Maka get a little bit nerves.
'We're so screwed,' Soul and Maka thought at the same time.
"No no we are... are," Soul said. Then he put his down in defeat. "I got nothing."
“It’s okay,” the girl said. “I want to prove that our boss isn’t a witch. Follow me to our hide out so I can show you.” And then she started to run off.
Soul and Maka looked each other a bit nervously. Soul whispered to Maka, “Should we trust her or not?”
“I’m not sure Soul,” Maka whispered back at him. “But it’s our only shot we’ve got. Are you with me Soul?”
Soul then looked at Maka and gave her his trademark grin showing his sharp teeth and saying, “You know I can’t leave your side right? I’m your weapon and you’re my mister.”
“So it’s settled then,” Maka said.
Then the girl came back and asked, “Are you coming on what?”
“We’re coming, we’re coming,” Maka said walking up to the girl. Then she asked, “By the way in what’s your name?”
“Oh, my name is Julia,” she answered, “but you can call me Jewell.”
“That’s a really nice name,” Maka said.
“Thanks,” Jewell said.
Maka and Jewell talk to each other while Soul was walking behind them muttering, “I still have a bad feeling about all this.”
When the three of them arrived at the location Soul and Maka were shocked at what they saw. What lay before them was... a giant five-story mansion. It was on top of the hillside and was a pretty old mansion, about late eighteen hundreds early nineteen hundreds look to it. Had stained glass windows of black roses on them, rose vines growing on the side of the brick walls of the mansion, and it looked more like a castle than a mansion.
Soul and Maka both looked at Jewell and asked, “Is this really you and your gain’s hang out?”
Jewell looked at them and answered, “Yes, this is a hang out. Isn’t it wonderful and beautiful?”
Soul and Maka looked at each other and had the same idea, ‘Most definitely a witch.’
“Well…” Jewell started, “are you coming or what?” She was understanding at the front gate and had an open for them to walk in.
Soul and Maka walked in through the front gate. It took them about five to six minutes to get up to the doorway of the mansion. When they reached the door Jewell press the button on the side of it. Then a female voice came out of the speakerphone.
“Yes, who is it?” asked a voice.
“Sakura, it’s me,” she told the person.
“What are you doing here Julia?” asked the girl, Sakura.
“I have two people here who want to talk to the boss.”
“Are they here to join our gang?”
“No, you hear about-” she stopped for a second and look back at Soul and Maka and she continued, “the other thing.”
It took a few seconds for the other girl to respond. But then she said, “Just a minute, I’ll have one of the maids come down to get the door open for you.” It took about two to three minutes for the front doors to open. The person who opened the door was a maid. She had chestnut a hair that went down to her waist, oak brown eye and one was covered by an eye patch, a face that looks like a doll and she had a dull look on her face, and she was wearing the usual maid outfit.
Then she looked at Jewell and said, “It is good to see you again Julia.” Then she turned to look at Soul and Maka. “Greetings, my name is Eliza. It is nice to meet you.” Then she took a bow to show respect.
“Eliza, you don’t have to always be so formal about greeting guests,” Jewell told her.
“I was taught to always be formal to all. Anyway, please come in,” she said moving away from her three them to enter. When they entered, Soul and Maka where surprised to see that the incentive the mansion was beautiful. It was a well lit room with a jet paint chandelier in the middle of the ceiling, old paintings from covering around the seventeen hundreds, mastered wood carpeting and wood carving and a giant stairway in the middle of the room that shown the second floors.
Soul was told that how cool the place looked, “This is a really nice place he got here, for a hang out you know.”
“Thank you Soul,” Jewell and Eliza said in unison.
“Please follow me,” Elizabeth said. She let them to what looked like the dining hall. There was a giant antique rosewood table in the room with a medium-size chandelier in the painting and above the center of it. “Please have a seat; our mistress will meet you as shortly.” Then she turned to look at Jewell. “Julia may I have a word with you outside in private please?”
“Sure,” she said. So the two of them stepped outside the room and close door behind them leaving Soul and Maka by themselves.
“So,” said Soul, “should we… take a seat?”
“I’m guessing so,” said Maka. So they took a seat right next to each other in the center of the table.
“So…” start Soul, “what do we do now?” Then the floor beneath them opened up.
“I wish you had asked that Soul.”
In a few seconds they were flying down the tunnel beneath them screaming at the top of their lungs. Soul was the first one to land on the ground. Unfortunately for him Maka landed on top of him crashing his back.
“That wasn’t so bad,” stated Maka. “Uh… Soul where are you?”
“M-Maka, please… Get off my back,” Soul said in pain. “I th-think you broke my… spine.”
Maka looked down to see that she had indeed landed Soul back. “Soul!” She shouted scrambling to get off him as fast as she could and looked down at him. “I’m so sorry soul I didn’t mean to…”
“It wasn’t your fault,” he said picking himself up and popping his back back in place. “You couldn’t control where you were falling.”
“Welcome,” said a voice above them. Soul and Maka looked up to see that they were in a large cage of some sort, looked more like an arena. “I’m so sorry for the rude introduction, but we don’t take too kindly to stranger.” They finally saw who was talking. It was a woman who looked like she was in her early twenty’s. She had raven black to her waist, yellow eye. She was wearing a black sleeve less kimono dress that went down to her knees with a rose on her left shoulder with its petals falling off. She had gloves that were past her elbow and boots that almost covered her lower legs. “But where are my manners, I haven’t introduced myself. My name is Rose, Rose Thorn.”
“You know,” Soul started putting his hand on the back of his neck, “a good host would treat guests a lot nice you know.”
“Again, I do apologize for that,” she apologized. “But my girls were only trying to protect me.” Just then Jewell and Elizabeth walked forward along with several other girls.
Jewell then spoke to them, with a bit of guilt in her voice, and said, “Sorry we had to do that to you two. I hope you don’t take it to hard?”
“But still,” Rose said, “Lord Death has broken his deal we had by sending you two.”
Maka and Soul couldn’t believe what they heard. “You’re lying!” Soul Shouted. “Lord Death would never make a deal with a witch!”
“That’s true!” Maka joined in. “If anything you broke that deal!”
“You know so little,” Rose said. “Eliza, open the gate.”
“Yes Mistress Rose,” she replied.
Soul and Maka were waiting for a gate in the arena. But what surprised them was that the gate was at the top of the cage were everyone was watching. Rose walked over to where the gate was and walk through it. When she did, rose vines grew every time she took a step and retraced after stepping off them.
When she finally got to the bottom she looked at both Maka and Soul.
“I really don’t want to fight you,” she stated.
“Then give up,” Maka said.
“That is also not an option. I’m sorry for what I’m about to do. Black Rose Whip.” After she said that the rose in her hand turned into a spiked whip.
“Right,” he then transformed into his scythe form. They were now going to fight the witch Rose Thorn.
