A Death Note Fanfiction
1st Person POV
I met him for the first time when I was 12.
I had gone with my father into work, hoping to snoop through some of his case files, but with one glance everything else fell away. He was a puzzle, a mystery I intended to solve. A single look in his eyes and I could see how smart he was, how clever.
So why did he put up with that treatment from the others?
Why did he show everyone such a façade?
His head turned towards me and for a moment I thought that he could hear what I was thinking, that he knew I knew. But then I realised that my father had called his name.
Matsuda - a name I will have to remember.
He said it in such a gleeful way, it made me want to kick him in the shin, or at the very least scowl fiercely, but I kept my face blank.
"Can you keep an eye on Light for me?" I rolled my eyes inwardly; I did not need anyone to look after me.
"Of course, Chief"
I watched my father disappear into a group of other officers before looking back at Matsuda. He had crouched down so he was level with me and his face was split with such a wide grin that his eyes had closed.
"Hello, Light-chan. My name is Matsuda Tōta."
I blinked, tilted my head and stared at him closely. Not once did his smile falter, not even the tiniest bit.
"I see you." I stated bluntly, and I watched as the smile disappeared and the eyes opened. The intelligent and serious look I was given did not startle me in the slightest. I could tell he was studying me before a smirk slowly appeared.
"And I see you, Yagami Light."
It was the start of the best times of my life.
