I don't own Death Note


Chapter eight: Ready? Set. GO!


Katana POV

"So how did you get this place?" Ryuk asked

"It's a long story"

"Well we have time. You can tell me then we'll talk about you-know-what."

"I-know-what..? Oooh! That. Yeah sure thing." I smirked mischievously

"Alright so tell me. How did you manage to get this place?"

"First I went to the park. I didn't find anyone. So I decided to go to a marketplace 'cause you know. There'd be more people there. Then I started looking and most people wouldn't even answer me when I talked to them."

"Well it isn't unusual. What did you tell em?"

"I told them I lost my little brother by an ice cream shop."

"Most humans won't believe you because they think that it's a way to distract them so you can rob them... Or they're just bad people."

"Ah... Anyways lets talk about your plan. Explain to me exactly what you want me to do."

"Mm. All you have to do is switch Light and L's souls. I don't know how your kind does it but I think you'll manage... By doing that I can have more excitement while watching this game. Because as you know Light is a criminal and L is investigating his case so by switching their bodies Light could get more stable ground..."

"...If L doesn't find the death note first so he can see me that is."

"Alright when do you want me to do it?"

"We could do it tonight at 9."

"Alright you'll have to show me where this L guy is so I can do it over there."

"Okay. You come over at Lights house and I'll show you where he is and il fly back."

"I'll be over there at..8 maybe?"

"Okay see ya then" he said and flew out the door.


I arrived at Light' house about 15 minutes early. I went up to Light room with ease since I changed into my original form

"Hey Light." I greeted

"Mmh.." He said not looking up from his homework

I walked over to Ryuk

"You ready?" He asked

"Yup, I made sure I had as much energy as possible. I had like ten cups of coffee.. I'm still a little jittery though"

"That's okay. Lets go."

He picked me up by my arms and flew out the window. We got there in, and we flew in through an open window in the kitchen.

"So where is L?"

"He's supposed to be in the living room and my source told me he's a weird guy.. I don't know what he meant but you can go look if ya want. But be careful. And don't do it in the same room as him. I'll be back later when he goes to sleep."

"Alright."

"See ya. Remember to start at nine." He flew away with one swift movement.

I peered around the room the lights were off but I could see a dim light coming in through the door. I followed it and I found a group of men eating cake and watching monitors. I stood in the entrance of the door and watched them for a while. One of them was sitting in a strange position and his eyes barely left the screen. He had a white shirt on and messy black hair. He didn't look like he'd slept at all. I assumed that that was L. I'd find out if it was true or not once I started the process. The man I assumed to be L stood up.

"I'm going to the bathroom tell me if anything happened while I was gone."

I went back to the kitchen and quickly laid down grabbing my flute. Since I needed all the energy I had I couldn't use any muscles for unnecessary things like sitting. I needed more than my flute to do the job so I looked up some old chants and memorized them. The chants were supposed to make the subjects sit in a comfortable enough position so that if they were to become completely limp no one would notice. And then their souls would transfer to each others bodies as I played my flute.

I looked at the clock on the wall. It was a couple seconds to nine. I relaxed my muscles and started to whisper the chant. I felt like a breeze was circling around me and I could feel the energy leaving my body. After a few seconds I couldn't see. My eyes were still open but all I saw was a weird mix of red and blue. I could hear distant voices and noises but I couldn't figure out what they were. I gripped my flute tightly and finished the chant.

I held the flute up to my mouth and started to play one of my most powerful songs. My fingers moved up and down the flute, each movement creating the most beautiful melody. It was like a symphony for one. I loved the sounds I could make with this one instrument. Playing it gave me a high that was even better than any drug. I never wanted it to end. But sadly the song was almost over. I finished the song and lay there exhausted.

After a few seconds of rest I got up slightly shaking. I walked in the direction of the bathroom slumping against the walls. I saw a light coming out from under a door and entered it. L/Light was still unconscious on the floor. I opened the fossit and cupped my hands under it. I moved my hands over his face and let the water fall.

This made him groan and rub his eyes. His eyes shot open revealing red pupils that faded into their normal dark state. He peered around the room realization suddenly appearing on his face.

"What the hell?" He looked at his hands then his eyes shot up meeting mine.

"Katana.? Where am I?"

"You're at L's headquarters. Keep it down the rest of the investigators are here."

"How the hell did I get here?" He whispered

"That's a long story. Just look in the mirror."

"Look in the-" he cut himself short before quickly getting up and moving in front of the mirror. He stared for a moment his expression never changing.

He faced me trying to hide a glare "What did you do?"

"I can't explain it but let's just say you're in L's body right now.."

"...What...? ...But..."

"It doesn't matter now. What does matter is getting you back out there."

"You're gonna pay for whatever you did."

"Yeah yeah. Now I'll be standing next to you the whole time so I can tell you what you should do."

He sighed in defeat.


Meanwhile with Light, Ryuk POV

I managed to convince Light that we needed more snacks so we went out. Light is currently sitting on a bench because he was tired for some reason. And I'm floating over him.

Ana should have already started by now what's taking her so long...

Light put the bag in between his legs, crossed his arms on his knees and rested his head on his arms. He was silent for a long while. Then a teenage girl comes along. She had blonde hair and brown eyes and she was wearing all black.

"Hey Light. There's a girl coming this way."

No reaction. I descended in front of him still not touching the floor.

"Heeeyyy..! Lliigghht..!"

She stopped next to me.

"Hey. Wake up. You can't sleep here." She leaned down lightly touching his shoulder.

His head shoots up to look at her. His eyes were blue then faded to brown.

"Where am I?"

"You're in front of an ice cream shop."

"How...? I don't remember how I got here.." He mumbled

"I'm Misa Amane by the way. Nice to meet you."

"Nice to meet you too. I'm-"he caught his reflection in a store window

"Light Yagami?"

I started snickering

"Is something wrong?"

"No everything's fine."

"I just don't know how to get home from here."

"You could borrow my phone if you want."

"Yes please."

She handed him the phone. He dialed a phone number and held it up to his ear with his index finger and thumb.

"Hel- Hi mom, it's Light. I went out to buy some more snacks at this new shop but I got lost on the way back... I'm in font of 'Tokyo ice creams'... Aha. Thanks mom I'll see you at home." He shut the flip phone and handed it back to Misa.

"Thank you."

"I could walk you home if you'd like.."

"No that's fine. I think I can manage."

"Okay. I'll see you around then.." She smiled awkwardly

"Yes."

"See ya." She started walking away with a bounce in her step.

"Light." She mumbled smiling

Apparently L/Light didn't hear her. He just stood up and walked away in the opposite direction with the bag of snacks. I watched over him from above.

Well he can't hear or see me... I guess that's a good start.


With Light' soul, Light POV

"You should hunch over a little more when you walk. And you should be more formal.. Almost British."

I glanced over at the mirror. What kind of man wears this much eyeliner? And has he slept at all? I can still taste all the sweets he's been eating.. He must have a sweet tooth. Just my luck..

"Hey! are you listening?" she snapped her fingers in front of my face.

"Yes."

she sighed "Anyways you've been in here too long. Let's go."

We left and made our way -with some nagging from Katana of course- to the living-room.

When I got there Katana yelled from behind me "Hey I forgot to tell you. You're supposed to tuck your legs under you and rest on your heels. Oh and hunch while staying completely still."

"Did anything happen?"

"Nope. Light still isn't back yet and the ladies are watching TV together." Matsuda said eating the last piece of his cake.

"Okay." I sat down like she told me to.

This hurts a little, how does he sit like this all day? ... A better question is how am I going to eat so many sweets...


With L' soul, L POV

"I'm home!" I imitated

This should be easy. Considering how I've been watching his every move for so long. I just have to keep it up till I know what's going on. I could do a full search of his room while I'm at it..

I made my way to Light' room and put the grocery bag on the bed. I emptied the contents of the bag and stared at them for the longest time.

Not a single sweet. Potato chips everywhere. This is going to take some time to adjust...

If I'm in Light' body then that means he could be in my body, there's a 60% chance of that being true. I thought plopping onto the bed.

I wonder what he's doing...
