'What…kind of demon is that?' Kagome hesitantly thought, blinking slowly just to make sure she wasn't seeing anything. It didn't work, much to Kagome's, now, fallen hopes. It was still there. The miko had never seen such a bizarre demon in her entire life, and that was saying something. The majority of the youkai she had seen were usually animal based, though some were of the elemental sort. This one…looked like neither, and Kagome shivered a bit as she felt the piercing glare that the demon shot her.
'Why isn't Misa reacting? Humans…usually fear demons at first sight…' Kagome thought, her nose scrunching at her thought. 'Misa is acting as she normally does…' Kagome widened her eyes at her next thought. 'Maybe Misa can't…see the demon…' Kagome slightly clenched her fist, if Misa couldn't see the demon, then she couldn't purify it. It would just be weird if her hand started to glow pink, and it would just cause too many questions that Kagome did not want to answer.
'I'll just have to act…normal, I guess…' Kagome thought, hesitantly putting a smile on her face at the sight of the blond model. "Misa-san! What do you want to do today…?" Kagome asked, trying to keep her sight from straying to the strange-looking demon. It was still glaring at her, and Kagome felt the need to glare back but resisted.
"Oh, Kagome-chan! I want to do this!" Misa said with excitement, holding up a few video tapes.
Kagome raised a brow, this is not what she expecting. "You…want to watch movies…?" Kagome asked hesitantly. She expected that Misa would want to do girlish things, like shopping for clothes or getting a manicure. 'If we have to watch a movie, the least we could do is go see one in a theatre…' Kagome felt like sighing.
"No, no, silly Kagome-chan! I want to play a prank…" Misa said, trying to hide her smile, but miserably failing. This was the first step of her plan to meet the real Kira, and she couldn't fail.
"A…prank…?" Kagome said warily, wondering what the hell her co-worker was thinking. She really did not think that Misa would be in to this kind of stuff. "What do you mean…?"
"Oh, it's harmless, really!" Misa said excitedly, and tried to reassure her friend at her wary expression. "I made this tape yesterday, and I want to send it to Sakura TV, you know, that channel that no one really listens to. That way, no one will believe the tape, and it will be just for laughs between you and I…" Misa explained, nervous to see there was still a wary expression on her friend's face. She couldn't risk sending the tape herself, as the police would undoubtedly find her fingerprints on the tape.
She was sad that she was framing Kagome-chan, but she would meet the real Kira at any cost. He was the love of her life, and she would do anything for him, even if she hadn't exactly met him yet.
"Isn't that…a little dangerous? I mean, what if the police get involved or something…?" Kagome said slowly, so it could sink into Misa's brain. Kagome did not need, or want, anymore police attention on herself. The whole thing with her father, Kouhei, and Yagami was already giving her a headache. She did not need to be charged with some misdemeanour thing, and did not need anything on her permanent record. She really doubted someone with a criminal record, no matter how small, could become a doctor.
"I don't think the police would get involved with something stupid like this…" Misa said, waving her hand dismissively. "I'm pretty sure that they are too busy with the Kira case." She added.
Kagome almost shook her head at the mention of 'Kira.' Almost everywhere she went, it was all about this Kira person, and she was personally getting sick of it. Why did everyone seem to idolize him? Sure, he was killing off hardened criminals, and the crime rate was sinking rapidly, but they were still human beings and deserved a better death than that. Kira was nothing more than a cold-blooded killer in Kagome's eyes, nothing better than the blood-thirsty demons she had encountered in the past.
"Why do you want to do this anyway?" Kagome asked, her eyes glancing in the corner where the demon stood. It looked like it hadn't moved an inch, but it was still glaring at her with piercing gold eyes. 'What the hell is its problem? I haven't done anything to it!' Kagome fumed in her mind, she was hiding her spiritual powers, so the demon couldn't possibly know that she was a miko. 'Whatever, I have to ignore it…for now.' Kagome thought, and glanced back to Misa.
She shuddered again, seeing Misa swirling with that black evil mist. 'It's obviously coming from that demon…but it is not harming her…' Kagome sighed silently; she wouldn't do anything as it wasn't causing any harm.
"Because it will be fun!" Misa said with enthusiasm, clapping her hands together in delight. If her plan worked right, then she would be able to meet Kira within the next week. She only hoped that Kagome would follow her plan, even if said person was unaware of any plan.
"Fine…I guess so…" Kagome sighed, relenting for the rather hyper girl. Why she even was hanging around Misa, she didn't know. "But if we get into your trouble, this isn't my fault." Kagome said firmly, watching Misa nod quickly.
"Yay! Thanks Kagome-chan! Let's go send it now!" The blond model said with excitement, getting up from her bed and grabbing Kagome's hand, dragging her out the front door.
Kagome was not relieved to see that the demon was following them, or rather, it was following Misa. 'I don't understand…' Kagome thought, looking straight forward. 'Why is it following Misa…?' Kagome slightly smirked at her next thought. 'No matter, if I can get it away from Misa for a few seconds, then I can just purify it…'
The miko watched as Misa handed the tape to her, and Kagome finally noticed that Misa was wearing gloves. 'To hide fingerprints, no doubt…' Kagome thought grimly, maybe Misa was just planning to dump the whole thing on her if they got into any trouble. 'It's too late now to back out…' Kagome looked at the tape that was just shoved into her hands; her fingerprints would already be all over the tape.
Kagome shoved the tape into the mailbox, not knowing why she would even agree to this in the first place. She shoved her hands into the pockets of her jeans, and looked to Misa with a questioning gaze. "Well, what do you want to do now…?" Kagome asked, hoping it wasn't anything stupid like the thing she had just done.
"I'm feeling kinda of tired. I think I'll just go back home now…" Misa pretended to yawn, throwing an apologetic look towards her friend. "See you later!" Misa said, running off before Kagome could even comprehend the situation.
"What…the hell…?" Kagome could only say, watching as Misa and the demon walked/flew off. 'She obviously wanted me to mail the tape and that's it…' Kagome thought, looking suspiciously in the direction the blond model ran in. 'Whatever…' She thought, walking off to a nearby stand.
Raito walked through the streets, his hands in his pockets. Ryuk was flying behind him, the same big sinister grin present on his face. Raito's face twitched, and his normally soft-tone brown eyes flashed to an almost crimson colour. 'Damn it all to hell!' Raito cursed, the past few days were not going in his favour.
The second highest scoring student in To-Oh (is that right?) who was named Ryuuga Hideki, obviously it was a fake name, had just revealed he was actually L and they both knew that they Raito could do nothing about the situation.
That, and the invitation to that girl to come and live in the same house as he, was also serving to piss him off. He only hoped that she wouldn't accept, he didn't need another girl after him. 'Though, dating a model could have some benefit for me…' Raito thought vaguely, thinking up of various situations where he could use the model for his own needs. He had heard that this 'Higurashi Kagome' lived in a rather isolated place, a large shrine.
Raito suddenly smiled a sinister smirk, his eyes lighting to a crimson hue. The model, Higurashi Kagome, could actually be a blessing in disguise for him. If he could seduce the girl, then things go could up for him. He could somehow convince her to let him move back into her shrine (giving him more solitude to kill criminals), get on even better terms with his father, (as he seemed to know her, from an old police partner), and her looks were a bonus as well. Dating a model would definitely boost his public status and if she ever figured out he was Kira, then he could just kill her using the Death Note.
He decided then and there, he needed to somehow convince her to first move in with him.
Kagome walked through the crowds, sipping her bubble tea and ignoring the points and gestures from fans. 'They're annoying…' Kagome thought vaguely, glancing up as she noticed a sweet shop. 'Hmm, maybe I should grab something for later…' Kagome thought, slowly walking in that direction.
She stopped suddenly as she noticed the two people walking out of the shop, recognizing one of them. 'It's that guy…' She remembered seeing him vaguely at the hospital after visiting Raye Penber. She watched with a detachment, glancing over his features.
He still had messy black hair that stuck up in every direction, he still had the black bags underneath his black eyes, and he still was wearing the white long-sleeved shirt and baggy jeans. He was with an older-looking man, one that Kagome did not remember seeing at the hospital. They were holding a bag of donuts. 'A relative maybe…?' Kagome thought vaguely, sipping on her bubble tea unconsciously.
She really didn't feel like approaching the shop now, just in case he recognized her from the hospital. If he was with Yagami, then he had to be some kind of police officer or detective, no matter how young he looked. (Does anyone know how old L is?)
She didn't feel like answering any questions that he could have for her. Kagome shook her head suddenly, glaring at the ground. 'No, what am I thinking? I shouldn't let something stupid stop me from just having a normal life…' She thought, looking at the sweet shop with a grin. 'Besides, it's been a long, long time since I have had a donut…' Kagome thought wistfully, thinking back to her travels in the Sengoku Era. It had nothing like a donut, or anything that was particularly sweet.
'Just ignore them…' Kagome thought, quickly walking past the two, sweating slightly as the black-haired male swivelled instantly to observe her rather intensely. 'Please don't talk to me; please don't talk to me…' Kagome chanted in her brain as she walked past them and into the shop. She almost sighed in relief as he didn't say anything, and thought she was in the clear.
Kagome glanced and browsed around the shop for a few moments, hoping the two police officers/detectives would leave, as she could still see them standing outside of the front window. The black-haired guy was still staring at her, and Kagome could feel her fingers twitching unconsciously. 'How could he remember me!? We barely even glanced at each other…' She thought angrily, shoving a few donuts and other pastries into a paper bag, paying for them at the front counter. She warmly thanked the pastry chef, before roughly shoving the paper bag into her backpack. She slowly walked to the front door, sipping her tea at a quick rate, and only hoped to Kami that the detectives did not approach her.
Unfortunately for her, her hopes were almost immediately dashed.
The black-haired male approached, while the old man walked away on the 'Blackie's' orders.
"Can I…help you?" Kagome asked warily, now completely regretting in going into the shop. She did not like how intently this guy stared at her, or how close he seemed to approach her. He was slouched over, but was still over a head taller than she was.
"Higurashi Kagome? Yagami-san is worried for you…" He seemed to be directing the statement at himself than her, but Kagome reeled back in shock anyway.
'Oh great, does he know about my humiliation too…?' Kagome thought bitterly, and warily glanced at the detective. "Oh right, and how is he doing otherwise…?" Kagome asked quietly, not knowing what else to say.
'Blackie' as she dubbed him, did not answer right away, and Kagome felt her eyebrow twitch. 'What's wrong with him…?' She was annoyed, and just wanted to get back to her shrine.
"Yagami-san would like to hear answer from you…" He trailed off suddenly, and Kagome felt lost for a moment, before finally knowing what he meant.
She had already thought this over, and still did not know what to do. Part of her wanted to accept his invitation, it was kind of frightening to know that a criminal was after you, but she did not want to intrude. "Please tell him for me that I will decide by tomorrow…ummm…" Kagome left off; hopefully she would get his name out of this.
"Ryuuga Hideki…" He stated vaguely, nodding to her other statement before walking off in the same direction that the older man had.
'What…?' Kagome thought blankly, watching him walk off. Was he insane? She had worked with Ryuuga Hideki once before, and that was definitely not him. 'A codename or alias…?' Kagome thought vaguely, he was a detective or something after all. She walked off in her own direction, absently sipping her remaining bubble tea.
'I'm just gonna go home now…' She thought tiredly, running her hand through her long and silky hair. Today was essentially a waste; she could've been doing more important things, such as her schoolwork. 'But I had to just fall for Misa's so-called sad eyes…' She thought, almost bitterly. She had to remind herself not to go out with Misa again; the blond model was too weird.
She walked through the crowds again, frowning angrily as people were yet again pointing and whispering. She was thankful that her angry look seemed to be deterring people from approaching her altogether. 'I should look like this all the time…' Kagome snickered in her mind, and then sighed. 'Maybe I should visit Penber-san again…' She thought with concern, remembering that the man was still in a coma, and didn't wake up.
'Is it normal for a heart-attack victim to stay in a coma? Or is it that dark energy still…?' The miko put her finger to her chin, thinking over the medical classes she had taken so far. It was useless because that class hadn't gone over cardiology yet. 'I'll visit him tomorrow…' Kagome thought with a smile, remembering the kind woman who had thanked her profusely for saving her fiancé. The miko was not used to be complimented so much, as Inuyasha preferred insults.
She was so in tuned with her thoughts that she did not watch where she was going, and squeaked in shock as bumped into someone and fell to the ground with a rough 'thump.'
"Owww…" The miko rubbed her back, opening her blue eyes to see a hand offered to her. She grabbed it, and was pulled gently to her feet. "Thank you…" Kagome suddenly trailed off, watching the boy warily.
'Again…?' She thought vaguely, not believing her, unfortunate, luck at meeting two detectives in one day. (She assumed that he was also a detective because he was with Yagami too)
Her frown was very apparent as she noticed that he was still swirling in that dark evil energy. She blinked and snapped to attention as he suddenly smiled charmingly towards her.
"Higurashi Kagome, was it? Are you alright?" He asked, with obviously fake concern. Kagome could tell right through it.
"Yeah…thanks for helping me up…" She said with a just as fake of a tone. She wasn't in the mood for such falsities. That, and the black mist seemed to shrink away at her presence. She almost had to smirk, but resisted.
Raito couldn't believe his luck, having bumped into the very person he wanted to use next. His almost red eyes quickly glanced her over, and immediately assumed that she wasn't a strong-willed person. It would be easy enough to seduce her for his own needs. He almost had to smirk, but resisted.
Thought Raito was slightly confused, Ryuk had immediately fled after he had bumped into the girl, but for what reason, Raito did not know. 'There is something more to her than meets the eye…' Raito concluded. First, she saves that damn FBI agent when he should have just died by the magic of the Death Note, no matter who had helped him. Lastly, Ryuk fled on sight of her, which was not like the Shinigami at all.
"Well, I should get going…" Kagome said after a moment of silence, ready to get the hell out of there. She frowned slightly as he grabbed her arm lightly. What could he possibly want?
"I'll buy you another drink…" Raito said kindly, (not) as he gestured to her spilt bubble tea. The faster he could get on her good side, the better for him.
Kagome only raised a brow, wondering what the hell this guy was doing. "No, that's fine. Thanks for the offer…" Kagome said, trying to get her arm out of his grip, but to no avail.
"No, I insist." Raito said, and Kagome froze at the sudden sinister flash of emotion that she could see in his almost crimson eyes. She didn't say anything as he suddenly introduced himself. "My name is Yagami Raito." He dragged her lightly to the stand she was just at.
He glanced at her, and couldn't hide the sinister smirk. He would get everything he wanted, only after he deposed of that bothersome L.
Power, money, a beautiful girl, and more importantly, a new clean pure world free of any crime.
Two dark piercing blue eyes glanced in the direction of his prey, and they flashed angrily as she walked off with another male. His fist clenched, and he smashed it into the shadowed wall beside him, easily cracking the hard concrete. Who did that whore think she was? She was his and only his; he would not allow her to flirt with any other man.
Hell, he would not let her even let her lie her slight on another man once he got a hold of her. A dark grin suddenly split his face, white fangs peaking over his lips.
Kagome would soon learn that she belonged to him, and him only.
A/N: Yo minna! There is some good news! My math course is not nearly as long as I thought, only seven small booklets. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed the chapter, and sorry it's a bit short. Also, I will be continuing any story that is left in my profile. Kagome will be dragged into the investigation, but probably not in the way you people think. I am taking it a bit slow so I can try and keep Raito/Light and L in character. The pairing is Raito/Kagome/L if anyone is wondering. Review! Ja ne!
