After seeing the text, Megan decides to call the number the text came from.

A picks up. "Hello?"



"Hey… how did you get this number?"

"I've had it for a while… What's up?"

"What's up?' Seriously? You just sent me a text saying that L is Kira. What do you think?"

"Okay okay. So… are you working for anyone?"

"If you're asking whether I'm with L or if I'm with Deneuve, my reply is the latter."

"Good. Is there some way that we could – oh, I don't know – team up?"

"Sure. Where are you?"

"Currently I'm in the U.S. – living like a bum. Didn't bother to think how life would be for me after I faked my death."

"Why'd you wait so long to contact me then? You could have been working with me and Deneuve this whole time."

"Couldn't risk it. I didn't know how close you two were with L."

"How sure are you that we aren't close with L?"

"You aren't exactly a good liar, Megan. Never have been. Plus, you called me back so quickly after receiving my text that the likelihood of some plan being formed is low. Also, what would be the point? What threat am I to L? I have nothing. No connections, no money, no identity. I pretty much don't exist in the eyes of the world."

"Alright. I'll see about finding a way for us to meet up. I'll let you know when and where is good. Unfortunately, in order to not draw suspicion, the so-called 'Kira case' is something that will have to be dealt with gently. We can't draw suspicion to ourselves. Is that understood?"


"Very well then. Goodbye for now."


Roger collects Near, Mello, and Matt for a meeting in his office. He hates children; he really does dislike them. It's only as a favor to his friend, Quillish Wammy, that he deals with them as much as he does. In his opinion, none of these three children are truly qualified to take down L if L is indeed Kira. Even together (or perhaps, especially together) they aren't qualified either. They're what? 15? 14? 13? 12? And none of them can really get along with each other. Even as he tries to tell them about the situation at hand, Matt's playing some videogame, Near's working on his blank puzzle, and Mello is yelling about how he shouldn't have to work with either of the two other boys. None of them seem to be truly listening to what he has to say. This is troubling to Roger, and he's wishing that either "A" or "Megan" (neither of these are their true names of course) were around. Unfortunately, A is dead (as far as he knows) and he isn't too sure that he should tell Megan about the situation. After all, she's working for the real Deneuve, who (as far as he knows) is working for L. It wouldn't do for this information to get back to him. In the end, he sends the children away and tries to come up with a way to get them to get along.

Author's Note:

I know that I said at one point that "Megan" was K's actual name in a previous author's note, but I've decided for this to not be the case. Or, if it is her real name, no one in the story knows that it's her real name. Something I was wondering though is if L knows the real names of his successors. If you know whether L does or does not know the real names of his successors, please let me know. Whether he does or doesn't could change the direction the plot goes. Me not knowing either way also affects the direction the plot goes.
