Murder Mystery Chapter something
So, I got my ass kicked by Cassia. No, I didn't fight back and no, I will not go into detail. Got it? Moving on.
Lets see the score shall we? Killer: 38,000. Us: 0. More than half of us were dead; including our two only suspects. Also, all our clues were rendered null and void thanks to magic. Stupid accursed magic. So yes, I was annoyed.
The only people who were still alive were me, Cassia, Riku, Axel, Demyx, Rin, Sephiroth, Kagome and Inuyasha. Although Inuyasha was "fatally" wounded so I'm not sure if he counts.
Earlier that day, Tifa was found dead in her room. She had been injected with air, so it seems. And everyone knows that being injectd with air kills you. Honestly, it was just another thing to add to the list of stuff.
We were all sitting in the parlor looking for things to do. Demyx was pacing when he shouted loudly. "Ow!"
Axel walked over to him. "What's wrong Dem?"
"Ahh! I stepped on a fracking needle!" Demyx shouted.
Everyone looked shocked.
Axel sighed and pulled the needle out of Demyx foot. It was dripping with blood.
"Are you okay?" Rin asked sweetly.
"Yep." Demyx sighed.
Axel gave the needle to Riku who's eyes widened.
I blinked at Riku.
Demyx walked away to clean his foot and we fell silent again.
"Hey why don't we play Truth or Dare?" I asked trying to lighten the mood.
"Sure." Everyone agreed.
"'Kay... Cas, you first." I said.
"Sephiroth. Truth or Dare?" Cassia asked.
Sephiroth glared at her then answered. "Truth."
"Why are you so cold all the time?"
"Why aren't you?" He asked. "Because it's in my nature."
"Suuure it is."
"Cas, you choose who goes next." I said.
"Okay, Cassia truth or dare?"
"Truth. I'm not stupid."
"Okay, what's your biggest fear?"
"That already happened."
"Right... Dorian next."
I looked at everyone. "Riku. Truth or Dare?"
"I dare you..." I looked at the needle in his hand. "To use that needle and get and ear piecing. Axel can do it." I smirked.
Riku paled. "Uhhh..."
"You can't back out." I said.
Axel laughed. "Riku's terrified of needles."
"At least they're not getting you to pierce you're belly button. That one hurts a lot. My sister forced me." Cassia said.
"Who says we're not?" I asked.
Riku ran out of the room.
"Because it'd be gay." Cassia said.
"Not always." I said.
"Riku?" I turned but he was gone.
Cassia snickered while Axel was on the ground laughing.
Rin giggled. "I wanna get my ears pierced!" She shouted.
"No you don't." Cassia picked her up.
"Do you have any weird fears?" I asked everyone.
Demyx walked in. "Fire."
"Water." Axel said.
"Oh please." Riku had came back. "You're afraid of the dark."
"Well you're claustrophobic!"
Now the two boys were arguing.
Valene popped up. "Spiders!" She shouted. "Well, that's what I'm afraid of."
I sighed. Me and Cassia went to our rooms. She was going to go rest while I thought about the murder.
I stayed there for about an hour thinking.
I was running out of ways to figure out whodunnit. Should I interrogate someone? Should I set a trap? Oh wait. I kept forgetting that Cassia was awake now. I could talk to her.
"Cas!" I ran into her room.
She was hugging Rin.
"Hey, do you think we should set a trap?" I asked Cassia. "For the killer." I added.
" How would we do that?" Cassia asked raising an eyebrow. Rin looked back and forth between us with big, curious eyes. probably wondering what we were talking about.
" Well... I have no idea." I said after thinking for a moment.
"Bait?" Rin suggested.
Cas and I both stared at her with wide eyes.
"Have you been paying attention to us this whole time?" Cass asked.
"I have been here the whole time ya know, I'm smarter then I look." Rin noted.
Cas and I just kept staring.
"I want candy. Kagome! give me candy!" Rin shouted, running out of the room.
"Anyways, using bait is a pretty good idea." I continued.
"Yeah but what kind of bait?" Cassia asked.
"The best kind... Live." I smirked.
"I'm afraid to ask." Cassia said somewhat seriously.
It was quiet for a minute before Cassia finally asked: "Who?"
"Well, we need to figure out who the killer wants next... Is there a pattern?"
"Well, the people who were killed either were annoying, had a fight, or were grieving." Cassia explained.
Valene popped up from behind Cassia's wardrobe. "Like Tifa."
"Right..." I turned towards her.
Valene smiled. "I really have to show you these alleyways." She thought for a second. "Secret passageways, tunnels, pathways, underground railroad and the Path of Valene." She continued.
"Ummm... Yeah so I'm guessing we need someone to be bait?" I replied.
"Well, that won't work if the bait is the hunter." Valene answered while sitting on the bed.
Cassia nodded. She got up and began to pace. "So it has to be someone we know is innocent."
"Why can't it be you or Dorian?" Valene asked as she tilted her head to the side.
"Because," I replied. "Me and Cassia need to observe and..." I trailed off and turned to Cassia. "Why can't we?"
Cassia rolled her eyes. "Because Dorian. Everyone here knows that WE are the main 'detectives'" She said using quotation marks on the word detectives.
"You're right that would be suspicious." I agreed.
"So for bait we need someone who is strong enough to possibly live, someone who doesn't care if everyone gets angry at them and someone who can be on their watch 24/7." Cassia said.
"Well that makes..." I trailed off.
We were silent for a few minutes.
"Sephiroth!" We both shouted.
Riku walked in at that second. "Where? Did he die? What happened?" He asked.
"No we want to-" Valene said before I clapped my hand over her mouth."
Riku raised an eyebrow.
"Nothing." I said. "We just wanted to know if he would... Play a game with us."
Riku scoffed. "Okay even if that wasn't completely suspicious I wouldn't believe you. Now spill." He said sitting down.
I looked at Cassia.
Rin ran in at that moment.
"Riku! Riku! Come play with me!" She dragged Riku out of the room.
I laughed. "Good timing."
"Rin's like that." Cassia replied.
I closed the door.
"Why didn't you want Riku to know?" Valene asked.
"Because. Even if Riku's nice, he could still be the killer." I sighed. "And we were just becoming good friends too."
"Maybe it's not him. We just can't take that chance. but what if Sephiroth's the killer?" Cassia said then stood.
"What about Axel?" Valene asked.
"He isn't around much and he's Leon's roomy... I think." Valene said.
"Was he?" Cassia asked.
"Oh yeah Leon moved into Axel's room a few hours before he died."
"So now Axel has to stay in Leon's room." I added.
"Hmm. Let's go visit him." Cassia suggested.
As we were walking I felt a sense of dread. There was no room for friends here without risking your life. Now that our main suspect was dead... Again. It could be anyone.
I thought back to when Cloud was locked in his room.
"'Kay. Lock your doors everyone." Cassia said.
"Like that will stop him." Axel muttered quietly.
"Huh?" I stared at him.
"Right." I raised an eyebrow but then just shook my head and walked away. I heard Axel sigh and walk away. Interesting.
I shook my head. Then I thought about something Kaugra said.
"True... I'll have to think on that. So I guess that Axel seems the next most likely." I said.
"Am I now?" A voice behind he said.
"Hey Axel." I chuckled nervously.
Axel was leaning against the door with his arms crossed. He looked pissed. "Why do you think that?" He asked with a menacing sneer.
"Uh-" I was surprised to find myself- afraid. "No...Reason."
"...Yeah." Axel rolled his eyes. "So-"
"What are you doing?" Kaugra asked as she stepped into the hallway.
I turned and blinked. "Uhh, Cas?"
"Ummmmm, talking?" Cassia suggested.
"About what?" Kaugra asked suspiciously.
"Ummmmm, stuff?" Cassia replied.
Kaugra then stared at Axel. "Hey Axel, Riku wants to talk to you about a bottle of acid he found under your bed." Kaugra said.
"Ooh." Cassia said.
Axel's eyes widened then he ran into the dining room.
"Cas, can I talk to you?" I pulled her into a corner and told her what I remembered.
"True but what about Riku?" She asked.
"Oh I forgot. I got a feeling at breakfast time..." I whispered. The two of us suddenly ran out of the room and into the breakfast room where we last saw Sango.
She was lying on the ground face down. "Huh?" Cassia blinked. "But she's dead!"
"Poison." Valene said.
"Its a special pill that you put in your mouth and it dissolves instantly. It melts your insides and you're dead in a few seconds..." I explained.
"It was suicide." Riku muttered from the doorway.
"But then why would their be tape around her mouth?" Cassia flipped Sango over to reveal the piece of duck tape stuck to her mouth.
"Nhh." Riku muttered. "We might as well all just die now... At least we won't be murdered brutally and gruesomely. If we kill ourselves then it's easier." He walked over to the table and lifted up the tablecloth revealing a bottle of pills next to the chair leg. He pocketed them and walked away.
"How did he.." Cassia blinked.
"Then there was when Yuffie and Aerith came." She added.
Dorian has a cell phone. I'm sure lots of other people do too."
"I have one." Riku said holding up his phone.
"Me too." Cloud said.
"Which you never answer." Tifa growled.
"Whatever. I have one." She pulled her phone out of her bag.
"I have one that I never use." Kagome grabbed hers.
"I have one." Hojo pulled out his. The cellphone skin had a picture of Kagome on it.
"Creepy stalker." Cassia whispered.
"I have one too." Axel pulled his out.
Demyx looked at Axel. "I did have one. But Axel and Riku used it in an experiment involving the battery. Apparently you can use it to poison someone."
"Right and a while later..." I nodded.
Aerith groaned. "I feel sick." She walked up the stairs.
Yuffie put down her tea. "Me too." She followed Aerith up the stairs.
"Who else drank this tea?" Tifa asked.
"No one." I answered. "We were all too busy talking."
"Hmm..." She sniffed the tea. "Doesn't look like there's anything wrong."
"Maybe it's the tea bag?" Cassia suggested.
Everyone walked into the kitchen.
I grabbed the jar which held the tea bags. "Hmm look at this." Behind the jar was a cracked cellphone battery.
"Well, well, well." Axel picked it up. "The stuff inside the battery is poisonous."
"Of course." Riku rolled his eyes.
"Tch. I should've known." I heard a voice. Scratch that two voices.
We turned to see Axel and Riku.
"Fu-" I began then I was cut off.
"Hi guys!" Rin shouted.
"Let's talk shall we?" Riku asked. He grabbed me and Cassia and walked into his room followed by Axel.
"Ummm." I looked away from Riku and stared at the ground. I noticed a box under his bed.
"What do you want?" Cassia asked.
"What did we say about blaming people?!" Riku asked. He looked angry.
"Well excuse us for wanting to get out of here."
Riku sneered. "Oh please even if you find him who says he'll let you out?" He asked.
I raised an eyebrow at that.
"Well if you find out who he is then we can kill him." Cassia smiled.
"Tch. You're nearly out of time anyways." Axel rolled his eyes.
"What?" I asked.
"Whoever this guy is, he killed my sister and my cousin. I'm out for revenge." Cassia said.
"We get it! Your family's dead. We know." Riku said icily.
While they were arguing I bent down and picked up the box.
"What's that?" Cassia asked.
Riku looked at me and grabbed the box.
"You're not only rude, but nosy." He scoffed.
Riku pushed us out of the room and slammed the door.
"What did he want anyways?" I asked.
Cassia shrugged. "Wasn't he playing with Rin?"
"Wasn't he playing with everyone else too?"
Kagome ran over. "Guys!! Sephiroth! He's dead!" She shouted.
I looked at Cassia. "Uh oh." I mouthed.
Cassia and I ran downstairs and noticed a trail of blood leading into the basement.
I poked my head into the basement. "Oh my god!" I stepped away from the door.
"What? Is there blood?" Cassia asked worriedly.
"No. No blood. Flesh though. Plenty of flesh." I said. I felt nausious.
Cassia looked in and screamed.
Sephiroth was being hung by his arms with hooks and it seemed as if all the blood was drained from his body. But that wasn't the worst part. All of his skin had been ripped off and his eye's had been removed. His legs had been chopped off and were lying on the ground. There was no blood but there were multiple other body fluids on the ground under him and his clothes were missing.
I could see his flesh and his organs but other than that he was intact.
"Ugh." I shuddered as Axel walked in followed by Riku.
I couldn't say that I was grieving but still this was horrible. And to top that off Axel was right. We were running out of time.
Me and Cassia left leaving the others to clean up the mess when we bumped into Demyx. He was sitting on the ground in the parlor.
"Hey Dem. What's up?" I tried to sound cheery but it wasn't working.
"I heard something. Like whispering. Then I saw..." Demyx shuddered. "I think I saw a ghost." He finally finished.
"A ghost? Who?" I asked.
"Talking. With Axel and Riku." Demyx seemed to have not heard my question. The poor boy looked terrified.
"Axel and Riku?" I blinked then pulled Cassia up the stairs.
"Cas I don't think either of them did it but..."
I looked at Leon/Axel's room. "C'mon. Snooping time." I pulled her in.
"Shh!" I closed the door.
"We need to make sure no one walks in." I said.
"What was is that box anyways?" Cassia asked.
"Maybe it's a scrap box." Valene's voice came but for some reason she was outside.
I opened the door. "Don't you usually pop up in the same room?" I asked.
"No tunnels going there." She shrugged.
"No tunnels to Leon's old room." I noted.
"Axel's new room." Cassia remarked.
I noticed a bag in the corner and recognised it as Leon's. I opened it and pulled out a map. It was a map of the building.
"Cas." I called.
She walked up to me.
I noticed that all the tunnels were highlighted.
"Ask Valene if there are any tunnels missing." Cassia said.
Valene walked over and ran her finger along the tunnels. "I saw all of these tunnels except for these two." She pointed to one that connected this room and Riku's and one that connected this room and the tomb.
"So all the rooms are connected. How come you can't find these two?" Cassia asked.
"They don't exist. Look. " Valene pointed to the map where the tunnels were then pointed at the walls. "Usually the tunnels are marked by a symbol telling which room they lead to but there's nothing here."
"Wow. You're... Normal." Cassia said. "It's a miracle."
"Oh it's serious when it comes to the tunnels." She replied.
"Maybe they're not marked for a reason." Cassia suggested.
"So this is the way the killer gets around the house so easily, through the tunnels."
"They're not very big and they're dark and spooky. Perfect for a mass murderer." Valene added.
I flipped over the map and noticed a list. It was a list of everyone's names. Excluding Leon's.
I raise an eyebrow.
"Look. Everyone who's dead's name is crossed off. And this continues on until after Leon died too."
"So it does." Axel said from the doorway.
Damn! Caught again.
"Uh oh." Cassia said. "We're not very good at this."
Something grabbed my shoulder and I turned to see Riku.
"Cas." I said.
"Okay what's with the name list and why is Leon not on it?" Cassia asked. "Hey! My names crossed off too." Cassia said. "Same with Inuyasha. But neither of us are dead."
"Are you sure?" Riku asked.
Well, there you are. The end of this chapter. Two more then we reveal whodunnit. Do you guys want a clue or do you think you got it?
If you want a clue just say so and I will point it out in the next chapter.
So... Any thoughts on what's happened so far? Say them in your review. Riku and Axel are pretty suspicious huh? We'll tie up any oose ends in the next chappie then after that the big finale.
Thanks and sorry we were gone for so long... The AN should explain (in the last chapter)
Please R and R.
