Chapter one: Worlds
I layed down on my couch in my bed room. It was a futon actually. We, my cat Filix and I, had just moved here from Georgia. I speak fluent Japanese considering my father was living in the Kanto region.
I was here living with him because I hate the man my mother married.
"Fiiiiiilllliiiixxxx" I called as the grey tabby cat was walking by. It stopped and jumped up onto my stomach. "geeeeezzzz cat, you're getting fatter by the day." I said to him.
He left after five minuets and I went to go get soda. Amazing how I could drink four liters and not gain a single pound.
"Heeeey, Hima. Hows it been around here today?" my dad asked as he came inside.
"just fine if you mean I was bored to no freakin' end." I mumbled so he would hear 'just fine'
"okay!" his cell phone rang. "hello?" he asked.
I reached into the fridge and got a can of strawberry soda.
My phone soon rang after that, "J.O.Y." I said not answering.
I went to my room again with my soda. I turned on my stereo and blasted "disenchanted" by my chemical romance. I spun around in my computer chair and sang along.
I pulled out my notebook. I wrote down a few things that I need for school that started tomorrow for me. Sigh.
I turned the TV on and saw that some person had a group of children and possibly around two teachers as hostages. The children filed out.
"it has been reported that the suspect has died." I looked in the mirror at my platinum blonde hair, pale porcelain skin, and desert colored eyes. I looked at my computer.

I was fed up with the talk of "KIRA" being a god. I hated Kira.
It was after class and I was sitting on a bench out side when Raito came up to me. "Hey, Hima." he said. I told him to just call me Hima.
"hello, Raito-kun." I said as he sat down. "so, what's up?" I asked leaning my head on my fist and stairing at him.
"nothing much, did you get the homework?"
"Of course, sir." he smiled slightly at my sarcasm. "or would you prefer what almost ALL the girls call you, Raito-sama?"
"you know what," he said trying not to laugh.
"no, but I would if you would please tell me…"
"I was going to any way." he said, "you wanna come over today?"
I looked at him, brown hair, brown eyes, "y-yeah, sure, Raito!"
"do you want to stop at the store first, considering…" he shook his head obviously commenting on what I said about his gross consommé flavored chips.
"I look at the flavors I was raised on." I pouted playfully.
"like any thing and every thing unhealthy?"
"AMEN!!" I said standing up. I smoothed my uniform.
We walked to his house. "Mom, I'm home." he said.
I was holding a box of chocolate pocky. "Hello, Raito! Hello, Hima." she said.
"hello !" I smiled politely. "you look nice today, coming home?" I asked.
"thank you, and yes he is." she said with a smile.
"come on, Hima." light said grabbing my hand and pulling me upstairs.
When we got to the top Sayu popped out of her room, "Hello, Raito, hey Hima!" she said.
"hey Sayu!" I said as light pulled me into his room. He closed the door.
"So, I see you don't have you bag of 'normal' clothes."
"nope." I said as I turned the TV on.
"well that's odd, usually you can't stand to be seen in the uniform."
" well WE have a CAPE… eeww." I said as he ate the chip.
"you know, you're the only girl I can talk to on an intelligent level. So where do you stand on the Kira case?"
"Kira deserves to die." he went pale.
"w-why would you say something so morbid?" he asked.
I took a shaky breath, "h-he killed my friend."
"who was your friend? I thought Kira only killed criminals."
"I assume you've heard about the LABB murder case, right?" he nodded.
"the man killed three or four people."
"Beyond Birthday…" I closed my eyes, "I used to live around him." I still don't like to think of my london days. He was my pen pal.
"I see. Well I completely understand your feelings about me" he flashed pink "I mean Kira."
"Raito?" I asked tilting my head slightly, "what'd you mean by that?" he couldn't be Kira could he?
"hmp." he frowned. "sorry, I guess I kind of took Kira's side about that case."
"Raito, would you tell me if you were Kira?"
"maybe… would you ever tell me what you think of me?"
"was that some lame way of asking me out?" I asked.
"I think so."
"I-I'll think about it, Raito, relationships never go in my favor." I walked over to the door, "see ya Monday." I said as I left.
I went down stairs and said good bye to and Sayu.
I was walking down the street when I saw a small café.
"fooooooooooooood." I said as I got to the cross walk.
When I got inside I saw the display of sweets. "can I help you, miss?" asked the cheery voice of my best friend, Lorie.
"hey, Lorie. 'sup? I asked as I spotted an old dude out of the corner of my eye. He glanced my way. "can I get some of that?" I asked pointing to a strawberry cake covered in butter cream icing and fresh strawberries.
"wow something up? You NEVER eat cake unless you were upset." she said getting a small slice.
"He brought up Kira." I sighed. I paid her the amount of yen.
"Raito?" she asked. I nodded. The old man looked our way. "what happened?"
"I'll tell you later." I said as I left to go to a table."
The door opened and I saw light walk in.
He came over to my booth. "hey." he smiled at me. "sorry if I rushed you." he said.
"n-no not at all." I said as he took my hand in his under the table. "Raito. I'm not saying that I don't want to go out with you- I just don't know."
He smiled. "It's alright, Hima." he said as he looked at my cake. "wow,"
"you and Lorie both, I SWEAR."
"grrrr" we sat there in an awkward silence. "look," he started.
"you say that a lot."
He rolled his eyes. "don't worry about it."
"no. the question. I wanted to show you something, but I can't do that unless I know you would never tell any one or freak out." he said more serious than I had ever heard him sound before.
"L-Light? You really scare me when you sound like that." I said as his eyes looked a bit more…red?!
"don't worry. I would never hurt you." he said leaning over the table.
"… light I would never tell any one. You don't have to date me to tell me a secret, ya know." I said, trying to lighten the mood.
He reached into his bag…
