Wandering around in the enclosed backyard, a girl stepped through a garden along a wide stone path. Flowers of every sort and color erupted from the garden even though it was the middle of the night, and as she walked she trailed her fingers along a few of them. The soft petals caressed her fingertips and she smiled, humming softly to herself. Being out here made her feel free from her worries - plus, it was the only place that her brothers had no care to visit. Having three older brothers was more than her mother could really handle, and even though they were all independent, they felt the need to watch over Kanna as if she were helpless. It was all because she was blind, she thought with disgust. Even though she was more than able to get around on her own, they all felt like she couldn't do a thing. She had heightened senses in everything but sight, they had all escalated after the accident that made her blind in the first place. Her eldest brother still didn't forgive himself for that, no matter how many times she had dismissed it and forgiven him. At times she even plead with him to stop moping.
None of that was on her mind tonight. Instead she thought of how restless everybody had been acting, talking in low whispers about 'them'. She didn't know very many details, but then again, nobody did. The family in question were off limits - not to be spoken to, looked at, or even on the same side of the street as. Apparently a super long time ago one of them killed some ancient family member. It was all ridiculous to her since she had never even met one of them, but she supposed she was required to go along with it. She wasn't even sure if they were vampires or humans or what. Her mind began to drift and she took a sip from the wineglass in her hand. It just wasn't the same as fresh from the vein, but she never complained. Being allowed out to hunt was a rarity. She frowned at the thought, slowly getting an idea. Making her way in a seemingly casual manner over to the wall, she set her glass down on a tile table and waited. Nobody was around. It was the perfect opportunity.
With no more thought than that, she had climbed over the wall and landed on the other side with as much silence as she was able. For a long minute she remained perfectly still, waiting for the yell. Nothing. She grinned and ran from the wall, making her way to the street and strolling casually down the sidewalk. The echo of her steps against the stone made different tones depending on if she was passing a building or an alley, so she was able to tell roughly how far she had gone. Her steps sounded different whenever she got too close to the road as well, which helped to keep her from stumbling. She slid her hands into the pockets of her jeans, her shimmering gold eyes open out of mere habit. Her layered brown hair hung partly in her eyes but she didn't care enough to brush it aside. She was delighted to just be out. It wouldn't last long, she knew, but for now it was wonderful.
