Plot outline

Yuki and Zero go into town to do some shopping for the Headmaster, and they are attacked by a fiendish vampire called a "Level E". Two Night Class students, Takuma Ichijo and Senri Shiki, arrive just in time to slay it, and invite Yuki and Zero to their dormitory at midnight to find out why they killed one of their own kind. Yuki wanting to know more about vampires goes and Zero reluctantly follows. Both are surprised when it is revealed that it was actually Ichijo's birthday party. Even Kaname attends, and he tells Yuki to sit beside him. Yuki learns that Kaname is one of the few remaining Pureblooded vampires. Zero leaves, and Yuki finds him collapsed near the pond, and he tries to drink her blood for a second time. But before he can, a vampire hunter, and Zero's old master, named Toga Yagari shoots him. Zero is locked away in one of the Headmaster's rooms to recover, but Yuki realizes that he can recover quickly if he drinks human blood, so she lets him drink her blood.
