It stated out as a way to tear down Dark's reputation, but quickly became something so much more. Something far more dangerous.

A/N: alright this story will definitely be a Dark/Riku story….eventually. Because those two just belong together, period.
Disclaimer: I have a contract that says DNAngel belongs to me…but Dark – san told me it didn't count on the grounds that it was written in purple glitter gel pen…_

"So you've finally decided to stop running, Michael?"
"Dark – san … I know why you're here, I just…I just want you to know that I never meant to … hurt anyone. I was just trying to find..."
"Michael, I know, really I do. More then you know. If it was up to me I'd let you go; but, you've hurt to many people for me to do that. I'm sorry…I'm gonna have to seal you."
"I understand. I knew this was coming."
"WAIT! DARK STOP!!"
"Michael I have to ask you, did you find it?"
"… It's not your fault Michael, I should have never tried to play god… It's not my place."
"So, do you think she's changed much since we last saw her?"
"I would hope so, seeing as the last time you saw her was over four years ago when we were thirteen."
"Wow, has it really been that long?"
"Yes, Risa it's really been four years."
"OOOO I just can't wait to see her again, can you believe she's already graduated from college! She always was a genius but still, to graduate from college at eighteen. That's just so impressive!"
"Well it kinda helps with you have a photographic memory," Riku muttered.
"Somebody sounds jealous," Risa's sing song voice taunted. "I don't blame you though, I'm a little jealous too. I mean I don't even know if I can get into college with my grades."
Riku chuckled, "Well if you didn't spend all your time stalking a pervert who doesn't even like you--"
"Mr. Dark LOVES ME!" Growled the younger girl, "and he's not a pervert. You're just jealous anyway."
Sighing, a sixteen year old, shoulder length haired brunette put her head in her hands. Her, jealous, of what? A non-existent relationship between a psychotic fan girl and her perverted stalkie. Hardly. (Yes, she had no qualms about saying that her beloved younger sister had entered the world of the stalker fan girl.) No, what she was at the moment was tired. After having been up late studying for a math test two nights ago, and then up late again last night making sure her sister didn't get kidnapped during one of her 'Dark stalking expeditions', on top of sports training, homework, and a broken heart. Well, Riku Harada was in a word, beat. The fact that it was six thirty in the morning, on a Saturday, and she was sitting in an airport, without having had coffee; didn't help her state of mind much either.
"Riku are you listening to anything I'm saying?" An annoyed Risa growled from her position in the row of chairs across from her sister.
"I listen to everything you say Risa," answered Riku while she rolled her eyes internally.
"O really then what did I just ask you?"
"Um…you asked me if I was excited about the fact that Shizuka's moving back here," Riku guessed mindlessly as she wondered if her coat could pass for a pillow and the rows of chairs as a bed.
"Noooo, I asked you if you wanted some coffee, honestly you never pay attention to me, or the things I say."
'Well maybe if you talked about something besides clothes, Dark, hair, Dark, boys, Dark, yourself, and o yea Dark. Then I would listen on occasion,' Riku thought to herself, but wisely said nothing out loud. "Sure Risa, coffee would be great; I could really use the boost."
"Alright then, but I honestly don't understand how you can be so tired. I mean I was the one out late last night not you," said the long haired twin as she popped up from her seat, and bounced over to the café. She could be so oblivious sometimes.
Riku could honestly say she had no idea where that girl got her energy from; she must have a stash of caffeine pills, or she had her own internal sugar making ability. But that would make her a plant, and she clearly wasn't one so… Shaking her head and groaning Riku took off her coat, resigning herself to a sore back later. She was going to black out soon if she didn't lie down. To reiterate, four hours of sleep or less a night, school, sports and a stalker ex just did not mix well.
…ok…maybe the stalker part was a little over the top given the circumstance.
Flight 254 Direct from New York will be arriving in 20 minutes.
I repeat Flight 254 Direct from New York will be arriving in 20 minutes.
"O thank God" mumbled Riku to herself. Twenty minutes for the flight to get here, fifteen tops to get the bags, ten to drive home without traffic fifteen with. In all she only had to survive another forty five to fifty minutes of this and then she could go to her room and sleep the rest of the day, screw messing up her internal clock.
"O Riku did you hear that, did you?!" chirped an overly enthusiastic, overly energetic, overly perky sister. Who had returned with the life giving coffee.
"Yes," monosyllables were a wonderful invention; they answered a question with little to no brain power.
20 minutes later
"O look! There she is," said Risa as she bounced on the balls of her feet, "Shizuka! Shizuka over here, over here!"
Looking up from her cell phone the medium length dark brown haired, green eyed, eighteen year old Shizuka Harada peered into the crowed; quickly spotting the voice that had yelled her name. Walking over to her vastly different identical twin cousins she smiled and waved to them.
"Hey, what's up you two. I wasn't expecting you to be here already."
"We've been here since six silly," said Risa as she gave her big cousin a hug, "You know, just in case your flight was early." Looking over Risa's shoulder Shizuka gave Riku a questioning look. Riku's response was a tired 'what, you expected me to argue with her' look.
"So tell me how long are you going to be stay at our place, or do you already have an apartment and this is just an over night," Risa asked sounding depressed at the very idea that she might not be staying with them.
"I have an apartment, but I'm not going to be able to move into it for a week or two," she reassured her distressed cousin. "I still have to get furniture and stuff."
"YEA!" squeaked the girl, "Now lets go get your bags."
After watching the long haired girl run off Shizuka turned to the clearly exhausted sister. "You've been here since six?! My flight wasn't due to land until six – forty at the earliest.
"She wanted to make sure you had a ride," muttered Riku as she started off in her sister's direction; rubbing her face to keep herself awake.
"I could have called a cab you know…" Grabbing the younger girls arm she turned her around and looked at her with concern. "Why are you so tired, you're usually the morning person not her."
Riku made an annoyed sound in the back of her throat, "I haven't been sleeping well recently that's all."
"Is there any particular reason?"
"Yea there is but I'm too tired to get into it right now." Shizuka let it go at that but gave her a "this conversation is not over" look.
A hectic half an hour later found Riku crashing into her bed and passing out; without even getting under the covers or changing. Sleep was really a wonderful thing.
A/N: and yes before you ask the Shizuka in this story is the same as in my "Roommate" one-shot. I wrote that a while ago when the character first came into my head. Then I came up with this story….so… yea ^_^
