Plot outline

Ichijo wakes up and finds himself in the care of Sara Shirabuki, who saved his life after he tried sacrificing himself to kill Ichio. She asks him to tell her all he knows about Kaname, and she tears at his flesh when he refuses. Meanwhile, Yuki returns to the Kuran manor with Kaname, and he admits all of his past wrongdoings to her. He tries to push her away, but she asks for him to taint her as well. They kiss and Kaname bites her. After that there is a one year time-skip, and the focus changes to Zero, who saves a little girl from being kidnapped by some ex-human vampires. He returns to his city apartment shortly after, and he is greeted by the Headmaster, who was released from the Hunter Society. The Headmaster informs Zero of a meeting that is about to take place between the Hunters and the vampires, with Zero as the future leader of the Hunter Society and Kaname as the future leader of the vampire society. Back at the Kuran manor, Yuki studies with Aido, who is her teacher. During Kaname's absence, she craves both his and Zero's blood, and she wanders around the mansion confusedly. She feels guilty for having feelings for both Kaname and Zero, and she asks Kaname if she can stay by his side forever anyway. Meanwhile, the Hunters continue to set up for the meeting and the party afterwards, and Kain and Ruka visit the Pureblood Hanadogi family to see if everything is fine. At the school, Zero's old friend Kaito is hired as a teacher, and he meets Yori. The Hunters and the vampires have their meeting, and afterwards Zero discovers that Kaito snuck Yori into the party. Kaito says that if the vampires notice there is a 'lamb' at the party and attack her, Zero will have the perfect excuse to kill Yuki. At that very same time, Yuki and Kaname enter the ballroom, and Yuki and Zero have eye contact for the first time in an entire year.
