Here I Go Again
I was walking home after my training. It was somewhere during noon now. I was pretty beaten up after Spirit showed me some pointers. I swear Sensei's getting more and more use to the fact he can beat me in a fight. I sighed as I scratched my bandaged cheek. I'd just noticed as well that I'd taken the long way home.
"Damn, looks like I was beaten so hard that I lost my focus. Ah, whatever, I'm already half way there." I kept walking not thinking of the easier way home. I was wearing a short-sleeved white dress shirt, blue jacket, grey skirt, red tie, grey worn out shoes, and my star pendent necklace. My black hair was loose as it hit around my hips. My gold eyes wanted to be shut for sleep. Though my clothes were a little tattered from the fighting.
As I walked I heard screaming coming from a near by park I was passing. I saw a girl screaming as she held someone in her arms. I could even smell the blood coming from that person. "Ah, looks like a murder. That means the culprit should be here," I smelled the blood coming closer, "Right about now."
I lifted my right arm up and swung it to the left. I felt it hit something, more like someone. I heard him cough from the impact. I turned my head to see a guy wearing a hooded jacket to cover his face. Though as he fell back I was able to see it. He seemed very young to be committing something like this.
I held him down with my leg. He grunted when I did that. I placed my hands on my hips and looked down at him. "Hey, just what exactly did you do?" That's when I noticed something in his eyes. Tears. I was surprised to see those. He started crying like a child.
"I-I…I just wanted her back." He covered his eyes with his arm. "That bastard just did that in order to get back at me! He doesn't even love her!" I could hear the police sirens getting closer. I took a good look at him before he would get taken away.
He had short shaggy hair that was black, his green eyes were red from the crying, he seemed around my age, but three or five years older. I smiled at him thinking about how foolish for him to do something so recklessly. I took my foot off his chest. He kept crying trying not to move at all even though I let him go.
I took a few steps back away from him. I looked up to the sky with my eyes closed. "It's true that people will do anything for love, huh?" He cried even louder. "Though it's also true that it makes us do things we'll regret." That's when I heard the cars park near me since the sirens were in my ears. I knew that the inspector was walking towards me. I could also hear them cuff up the guy who did everything for his love back.
That's when I felt someone's hand on my shoulder. I turned to see it was the inspector giving me a smile. "Great job once again Sammy! I don't know how you do it, but you always manage to get them!" He started laughing as he praised me. I have a small smirk.
"Ha-ha, yeah neither do I." He patted my back so hard that I thought I was going to fall face flat to the ground.
"Ha-ha! If only you could meet Shinichi! I'm sure you two would make a great time!" I tilted my head as he said that name. Shinichi? Never heard of him.
"Sammy Rose," I turned to see it was only the press calling me. I was blinded by the flashes and got a little dizzy. I shook my head to snap myself out it. I walked over to them with a sigh.
"Hai, that's me." There were more flashes as I came closer. One of the men came closer to me, I guess to ask a question.
"Rose-san, how did you know that was the killer?" I shrugged. He seemed surprised to see me do that.
"I just happen to be here at the right time, that's all." They all then looked at me as if I was joking. Then the inspector came over and nudged my shoulder.
"Ha-ha! She probably saw him commit the murder and caught him of course!" Everyone nodded and laughed along with the inspector. I just there with a blank look on my face. Sigh, it's going to be on the paper again isn't it? I just need to make sure they don't find out how I did that.
I started walking down the road again. The inspector tried to stop me, but I just wanted to go home to rest. Ah, I miss my bed! I could no longer hear the sirens from the scene, so that meant everything was dispersed. Sometimes I wish I could just go home without trouble for once. I mean can't a girl rest?
I could feel like I was getting closer to home. I was walking down one of the bridges where cars passed by. That's when I heard a loud screech that hurt my ears come from down the road. I turned to see it was just a speeding black car. I felt myself getting irritated at this point. I jumped over the fence into the street.
The car was still going full blast straight towards me. I stood there with my hands in my jacket pockets. I looked at it with annoyed look. "They just never learn, do they?" I put out my arm towards the car. That's when auto parts went flying everywhere.
I'd stopped the car by damaging the front of it. It now had a hole the size of me. I could hear the car door opening from the driver's side. I looked to see it was a man wearing all black with long blonde hair. He looked surprised to see me alive and standing.
"H-how the hell did you do that?" I giggled a bit at him. I pulled out my arm from his now trashed car.
"He-he, that's the thing, I not some normal teenage girl." I stretched my left arm making sure everything was fine and it was. That guy just started laughing like crazy.
"I see, all right then kid. Let's see if you can handle what's coming to you." I got a little confused after he said that. That when I heard what he was talking about. I'd been shot at my side. I slowly looked behind me to see another men in black, but he was shorter and fatter. Damn, I didn't even hear him! He must have snuck out through the open door.
I fell down to my knees looking at the man in front of me. He got closer to me then smacks me across the head, which made my head hit the pavement as I went down. He knelt down in front of me. He got something out of his coat pocket then lifted my head. "Let's use that drug we used on that other kid. It worked out well."
"Good idea." I could feel myself getting weaker from the shot. That's when he put something in my mouth. I had no choice, but to swallow. When I did he dropped my head back to the ground.
"That should take care of her. Let's get out of here." They started to walk away from me. My breathing started to get heavy. I could also feel my bones burning.
"G-gah!" I started to cough up blood after a few seconds. I couldn't believe what was happening. Am I really going to die like this? Then I heard another high pitch coming from the car. I lifted my upper body up with my arms. I turned to see the car was on fire. "Oh...no." Then…boom.
I was sent flying straight down the road from the explosion. Though I'd managed not to catch fire. When I hit the ground everything turned black in that split second. As I laid there in the middle of the road I thought about how this was it. I began coughing up even more blood. I felt a small smile on my face again. I just wish, I could've said good-bye at least. Ha-ha, I always try to do the right thing and this is what I get, huh?
