In celebration of my 4th year anniversary as an author in I've decided to write 2 new fanfics for the year 2008. The first one will be based on yet another Taiwanese Series "Devil Beside You", and the other one is the much-awaited sequel to my second fanfic "Once Upon A September"
Disclaimer: I do not own Devil Beside You. My first Death Note fanfic, and the pairing is quite… hmn, just judge it. I know a lot would react to this, since I myself know that there are a few who'd want the pairing.
Death God Beside You
Shinigami Tonari wo
A girl and a boy facing each other in a place that seemed like paradise…
"Ryuga Hideki, Misa has something to tell you…" the girl said, flinching every now and then. The boy just looked at her, quite confused.
"…Misa knows this is so sudden, but… Misa… Misa… Misa really… likes Ryuga Hideki so much!"
Afraid to see what his facial expression is, Misa, the girl, closed her eyes tight and looked down. But then, suddenly, the boy spoke to her.
"You must not have said that," he began, and colors rushed to Misa's face.
"Misa knows that, but…"she paused when she gazed at her beloved Hyuga Hideki, he was smiling.
"…Because I must be the one who told you that firstAmane Misa…" he uttered softly."I think before you liked me… I've already liked you."
She smiled at him. Yokatta!
"Misa… would you be my girlfriend?"
"Hideki-kun!" she ran towards him, and then she propped him into an embrace. "I really like you!"
Chapter One: I am… Kira
A girl in glasses was happily sleeping during her class, and she seems not to notice that their teacher was coming to her. But then, she felt something that tapped her head. It was a book, and in front of her flabbergasted face was their teacher.
"Is this class really that boring for you?!"
"I- I'm sorry!!!" Misa covered her blushing face. "I won't do it again!!!"
Then she glanced sideways, just to see how her crush, Ryuga Hideki reacted. He was smiling back at her, and it made her heart melt…
Hideki-kun… did he just smile at me? He's so… Kakkoii!!! Misa remained smiling to herself.
Their class ended and the students came out of the classroom one by one. Hideki came out of the room first, and Misa followed him through her eyes, snooping behind him.
"Were you dreaming about him?" one of Misa's friends, Maya asked. She didn't reply, but she just twitched her lips. "You're getting worse by the second!"
Misa just sighed as she removed her glasses. "I can't believe that a famous pop idol would go after a weirdo. By the way, what were you doing in your dream?" her other friend, Aki asked.
She stood up a chair and yelled, "I dreamed of victory in love!"
"What did you like in that weirdo anyway?" Maya replied. "He looks kind of scary! And he is pretty peculiar while sitting inside the classroom, but then, I can't argue about his inborn talents and capacity when it comes to academics."
"Yeah! Hideki-kun's not just that wise guy! He's also good at Tennis! " Misa defended him.
"So… will you finally give your letter to him?"
Both the girls' stares turned to Misa. She silenced. "Can… I actually do that?" she asked curiously. "I'm… so afraid!"
The next thing Misa knew was she's standing behind the staircase, waiting for Ryuga Hideki to come out. By that time, he's just finished his Tennis practice.
I can do this… No… I cannot…! I must do this… I'm so afraid… What if… No! I must be strong! Here I go… Here goes Misa…
When she turned towards the stairs, Hideki just passed by. "Ryuga Hideki-kun, please accept my love letter for you!" she continuously said, but then…
It's not… him! It's not… not… oh my god! Misa's mouth gaped open wide. "Who are… you?"
"What's going on?" Aki whispered to Maya. "Where's Ryuga-kun?"
The person in front of Misa is not Hideki. He was mysteriously smiling at her. He's not saying anything, and he and Misa were merely gazing at each other for quite a while.
Misa's friends noticed who the person was, and then they yelled at Misa. "Run, Misa-chan!"
Misa was more confused, and she hastily left the place. Little did she know, she dropped something important… and the guy just watched her trembling like a mouse scared by a big, fat cat.
"Do you know him? Why were you so afraid back then? I was also scared by that!"
Her friends sighed. "Don't try messing with him. He's just the son of Tohou University's president, OUR University."
Misa's jaw dropped. "It's actually his fault for hanging around there just so suddenly."
"If only you were not dumb not to notice that Ryuga-kun has passed by already…" they teased her.
"You know what, he's not just one big-shot president's son!" Aki suddenly told them, eyes shining brightly. "He is a known mob leader! And he's also rurmored to be the great death god Kira!"
"EH? He's Kira?!" the two other girls exclaimed. "Is it true?"
Aki shrugged her shoulders. "I don't know," she said. "Besides that, he's got a huge number of fan clubs. And he's famous around the Kanto Area!"
Suddenly, Misa stood up. "Oh no! I think I forgot something!"
"What is it again?" Maya asked. "You're being too worried."
She gazed at her friends with crying eyes. "My love letter for Ryuga Hideki!!!"
She dashed back to the Main Building's lobby and tried to retrieve what she had just left…
Misa searched every corner at the lobby. It was already raining hard outside already. "Oh my, the wind must've blown it away the grass field!"
Without much thought, she ran outside the building and searched for her letter. She didn't notice someone with a black umbrella was idly sitting on the grass field. He noticed her and then she caught his attention.
"What are you searching for?" he asked.
"Uhm, it's a lov---" she stopped when she looked at the person beside her, and she gasped. It's him!!!
"I'm looking for a… La..Lavender! Right! A lavender!" she smiled at him.
"Can I help you find one?" the guy asked. "By the way, I'm Ryuga Hideki. You're from my Economics class, right? Amane Misa… known as Misa-Misa outside the school."
Misa faintly blushed. "You… know the real me?" she asked. "No one's noticed that before!"
"Why would I not notice a very pretty girl…" he said, scratching his head. "I watch Happy Sweets… I bought your latest CD."
She was so glad to hear that from him. "Did you like it?"
"Hai. Absolutely…" Hideki replied. "Will you sign it for me? But then, let's find your lavender first…"
She simply nodded. "Wakatta."
Misa came out of Tohou University happily imerged on positive thoughts. Meeting with Hideki, talking with Hideki, and Hideki knowing her name and true identity. Surely, he's not an average person. He's got good deductive skills and observation. And, he said he's her fan.
Misa passed by her manager first to check to her weekend schedule and to know where her new place should be. Recently, there were reported incidents of guys stalking her, and she's so wanted by the media. Her recent acceptance in a University must've made this.
"Good afternoon guys!" she greeted the whole staff. "What's going on here?"
Her manager rushed to her. "Misa Misa, we're hiring you a new guardian against your stalkers. He's a well-known man, respected and he's got tons of bodyguards for you." She told her.
"Really? I'm glad that someone as kind as him would offer that! Thank god!"
She pointed to a man behind them. "His name is Yagami Ichirou. He is a part-time detective and business man."
Misa came to greet him. "My utmost thanks to you, sir!" she said. "I'll do my best!"
"Don't worry, Misa Misa! My wife and kids are your fans!" he said and he chuckled.
She just smiled. I guess everything would turn out fine. No more stalkers! Yay! "When will I move in?"
Mr. Yagami thought for a while. "We haven't finished your custody, so it might take a while."
Misa was surprised. Custody? Since when did that word emerge from her life? "Pardon me?"
Her manager tapped her shoulder. "Our kind Yagami-san wanted to adopt you, Misa-chan." She told her. "In a matter of months, you shall be Yagami Misa."
She blinked her eyes in surprised. "You're serious? Someone would… want to adopt an… orphan like me… in my age?" she stammered.
Mr. Yagami smiled warmly at her. "Yes, Misa. From now on, we could be a happy family. You will be with us."
Misa looked at the ground and for a while she didn't speak. "Why, Misa? Is there something wrong? Shouldn't I just let you be?" her manager asked.
She shook her head and looked up to them, "I'm so glad to hear that from you, Yagami-san! Arigatou for choosing me…"
Her manager exhaled. "Good. At least, you are in to it."
"You will meet the family the day after tomorrow." Mr. Yagami said. "My son studies at the same school as yours."
Misa smiled to herself. Mom, dad, thank you for taking care of me from heaven…
The next morning, Misa went to school early. Her happy thoughts prevented her from remembering the love letter intended for her one and only first love, Hideki. As she tarried along the vast ground of the campus, someone appeared in front of her… and got her surprised. It was the president's son from yesterday, Light.
"Miss, I think you left something behind yesterday…" he began politely. "Does this belong to you?"
In his hand, he lifted up something… and when Misa took a closer look on it, she discovered that it was undoubtedly her love letter. She smiled at the guy, and said, "Thank you for finding that for me."
She dashed to the guy to get it by herself in shame, but then, he lifted it up much higher than earlier. Misa was more surprised by the way he's acting.
"Give it back to me!"
He smirked, removing the innocence of his look a while ago. "Do you think I'll give it to you that easy?"
She sighed. "I said, give it back." She told him calmly, trying not to lose her cool.
She glared at him. "Gimme!" then they almost chased each other. At the rather annoyance, she stopped.
"What do you want from me?"
He moved closer to her, "I want your loyal service to… me," He responded. "…in exchange for this."
"What? Hey, do you know that I'm older than you?" Misa tried to defend herself. "I absolutely won't do that!"
Then Light suddenly went on a thinking pose. "If you refuse to do as I've told you, I would only reprint this and scatter it all over the campus."
He pointed at the vast number of students coming in of the University's gate. "…and soon, everyone will know. Even that person. What should you do now, Misa-sempai?" he teased her.
Misa gritted her teeth. "FINE! I'll do what you want. Now give it to me---" she tried to reach for it, but she failed. Instead, she fell on his arms.
"Of course I won't hand it to you till the deal's over, silly." He said. "See you later at the turf. Take care, Miss Amane."
He bowed down. Misa looked at him. "You are?"
His dashing figure stood before her with his gleaming eyes mysteriously looking at her. "Don't you really know who I am?"
Misa shook her head.
"It's time for me to reveal my identity to a person… I surely will have connection with." He sighed. Then he tipped her chin with his finger. "Please be discreet about this… I am… KIRA."
Misa's eyes enlarged in fear and shock at the same time enveloping her. His presence scares her and gives her the creeps. He let go of her, and left her standing alone in shock. As the crowd passed by her, she seems to still hear his words with his dangerously low voice inside her head, the last word repeatedly:
I am… KIRA…
To be continued
Author's Note: I really find it hard to choose who shall be Yuan Yi's role here, L or Light. Both can play guys with "cool" attitudes. But what's special about Yuan Yi's role is his sincerity, which I don't think I saw in Light when he agreed to be Misa's "boyfriend". So I came up with the idea that L should be Yuan Yi, and Light, the notorious Ah Meng. But again, Light's façade is not a bully! This is so confusing for me. So please understand if it doesn't come out good the way Death Note's characters and Devil Beside You's characters merge.
Additional Note: Misa was supposed to say "love letter", but then since it was her crush, she said that it's a lavender (the flower). The two words seem to sound alike.
