A/N: I do not own Beyblade, just the characters you don't recognize
Kai couldn't believe that he had gotten himself into this situation, but as he sat in the living room of the family that had adopted a girl he had never met he knew that it was the right choice. He could see pictures of her and the family scattered around the living room and it made it harder for him to have to tell them the news they had discovered.
"I didn't expect to see you all the way out here Mr. Dickenson" Ryan Mason stated as he sipped his tea. Angela Mason passed Kai and Mr. Dickenson full cups of tea as she sat between her husband and brother-in-law.
"Well we have some upsetting information. Kai here found a file in his grandfather's attic. In that file, there was a birth certificate, and a vial of blood. We had the blood tested to see if it matched the identity on the birth certificate and not only did it match, we found the adoption records. Your daughter, Autumn, is the girl that this file depicts." Mr. Dickenson stated as he showed the three the file in which he was talking about.
"Is that a…death certificate?" Angela asked looking through the file. Derrick Mason and Ryan looked through it as well.
"That is why we are here. I found that file two weeks ago and the death certificate was created a few months before that." Kai stated before taking a sip of his tea. He knew telling a family that their daughter was dead wasn't going to be easy in the least.
"So you're telling me that my daughter is dead?" Derrick asked as he looked at the old man and young boy. Both had a grim look on their faces.
"Unfortunately that's what the evidence says" Mr. Dickenson stated as he set down his tea.
"Then I'm afraid to say you're wrong. Our daughter is upstairs sleeping" Angela replied setting her tea down.
"Why would this file with our daughter's birth certificate, blood, and a fake death certificate be in your grandfather's attic?" Derrick asked as Ryan continued to look through the file.
"Because her birth name is Kendra Hiwatari, and I'm going to assume that you are her brother" Ryan stated as he picked up the much older birth certificate.
"That is correct. To be honest I didn't know I had a sister until I found that file." Kai responded taking another sip of his tea.
"Why the fake death certificate?" Angela asked picking up the piece of paper.
"I wish I knew. My grandfather is the owner of a powerful company but he has some shady characters working for him. I wouldn't be surprised if he sent one of them after her, but I don't know why he would do that" Kai stated crossing his arms after setting his cup down.
"I guess the next question is, are we going to tell Autumn about this or keep it from her?" Ryan asked as he closed the file and pushed it away.
"I think it would be best if we didn't say anything to her until we know why my grandfather wants her dead" Kai stated looking at the three adults that were taking care of his younger sister. Angela smiled and nodded.
"I agree, if we told her now she would want to figure it all out and wouldn't stop. It's better for her health if we don't tell her right away" the woman added. The group finished their tea before Kai and Mr. Dickenson took their leave.
What the group didn't know was the girl they had planned to hide the information from was listening at the top of the stairs and heard everything that they had said. She slipped back into her room and pretended to sleep as her parents and uncle walked up the stairs. But sleep evaded her as she tried to remember something from her life before she was adopted.
