Plot outlineEdit

Zero smells blood, and a panicking Ichiru runs to Shizuka's side. Aido, who had been eavesdropping on Kaname and Shizuka, was the sole witness of her death. Ichiru flees angrily, vowing revenge against Zero and the school. The Night Class reports to the Vampire Senate that it was Zero who killed Shizuka Hio, and they send assassins to take care of him. Kaname interrupts, and stands against the Senate. He, Ichijo and Akatsuki Kain go to the Senate itself to testify for Zero, while Aido runs away to the Sun Dorms because he was upset about witnessing Shizuka's death. After watching Zero drink Yuki's blood and talking to Yuki, he resolves his issues and returns to the Moon Dorm. Later, a Day Class student collapses, with fang marks in her neck. Kaname openly suspects Zero, and Yuki shouts at him, saying that she won't talk to him again until he admits that Zero is innocent. Kaname discovers the culprit, while Zero has a vision of himself accidentally killing Yuki. Yuki asks him what's wrong, and he, rejoiced that she was still alive, leans in to kiss her.
