This is the start of my second Yaoi Fanfiction. And it's the second time I use Shizuo and Izaya. Hope you enjoy it and i am thankful for every review, good or bad.
Oh and of course I don't own any of the characters (damn!)
Some years ago twin boys were born to the Orihara family. Both had brown hair but the colour of their eyes made it easy to identify them. The older one's eyes were red like blood while the eyes of the younger one looked like pure gold. Mr. and Ms. Orihara were very happy to have such cute and beautiful babies but, as they grew up bit by bit, the parents began to think that their current comfortable life might be not permanent. Shortly after the little boys turned two, the older one, Izaya, was already able to speak well and even started to read books for children. Shizuo was a bit slower than Izaya in learning how to speak but at least he seemed to act much more like a child. Both excelled in physical abilities compared to the other kids though it differed in the way the twins did things. Izaya was very agile while Shizuo was strong for their age. Their parents started to fear the abilities both had only a year later.
It was one of the Orihara family's usual but busy days: Mr. Orihara was a journalist and often worked overtime and sometimes even at night. Because of that Ms. Orihara had to do the housework and look after the kids alone. On this day she was cleaning the windows, washing clothes and getting rid of the dust. That's why she was late in buying the necessary things for that day's dinner. Ms. Orihara decided to put the twins in their playpen so they couldn't hurt themselves, said that she would be right back and rushed to the closest store in the neighbourhood. When she came back about 20 minutes later, it was already too late. Both had escaped the playpen and had demolished the living room. It seemed that Izaya had taken away Shizuo's beloved cuddly toy (a pink rabbit) and was now sitting on top of the cupboard with the rabbit's head in the one hand and the body in the other. Seeing his mom didn't hinder him throwing the head on top of the lamp and, after succeeding, looking quite satisfied.
Shizuo, on the other hand, hadn't been able to reach his rabbit or the enemy called "brother". That's why he had tried his best to throw everything in his reach at the culprit. Shards of vases, the remote control, even a door handle and some chairs were lying around the cupboard. Even closing and opening her eyes again and again didn't change anything about the situation. Ms. Orihara took care of the shards and scolded both. This was something she had to talk about with her husband. What if they fought again in the future? Would the house still be safe to enter?
When Mr. Orihara came back, Ms. Orihara showed him the results of the twins' fight. At first he thought someone had broken into his house but then he heard the ridiculous story of his own sons committing this mess and his wife's fears about what might become of them if they continued to live together. They concluded that they couldn't possibly keep both of them if this ever happened again.
The summer after Izaya and Shizuo turned four years old.
"Shizuo, this is your new family. They are called Heiwajima. You even get a little baby brother. Isn't that just lovely? Now you're the big brother. Now, introduce yourself to them."
"Hi…" little Shizuo said shyly.
He didn't expect them to keep him either like the last two families. For sure they would find a reason to give him away again. Not even his own family wanted him. They had abandoned him.
But over time and, to Shizuo's surprise, he grew to like this family, especially Kasuka, his new younger brother. The other families had either gotten kids of their own and had no need for Shizuo anymore or their work was more important than him so that he started to get violent again and hurt them. Here he had no reason to fear anything. His new parents already had a kid but still adopted him. His new dad was working a lot but at least the mom was home all day because of Kasuka, made him pudding and playing with them a lot. Shizuo was loved.
Even though he felt happy and at home in his new family, in the following years he occasionally asked himself why his own family discarded of him even though Izaya was the one who had usually started the fights. Maybe it was because he was too stupid? Was it because he wasn't enough of a genius like his older brother? Exactly what was he lacking?
Shizuo's violent behaviour didn't stop but it got a lot better in the Heiwajima family. With the years passing by he got stronger than anyone else although most times he could control his temper. Everything shattered, though, when Shizuo started to attend the Raira Academy. This was the place where he met Izaya again.
When Shizuo was given away, Izaya felt like he had won. He was the most beloved person of their parents. They decided to let him stay. The actual reason was unimportant. A win is a win and stays that way but time passed by and his parents weren't giving him more attention now that Shizuo was gone. On the contrary: they sometimes seemed to be rather depressed about giving away their second born son. Finally Ms. Orihara was pregnant again and another pair of twins was born. Izaya's parents now gave them the most attention and even though these girls - trained by Izaya - weren't sweet little angels but most likely devils, the parents did not give them away or gave them less love. It was frustrating but the brunet had to admit that Kururi and Mairu were nearly as intelligent as him and it would be too much of a pain in the ass to get them out of the house. Instead he would try to get some money and live on his own. Only a short time later he was already successful with his new job as an informant. Using his newly gained connections he also found out where Shizuo was. It interested him to see what face his little brother would show when they would see each other again.
On their first day of high school, Izaya was kind of exited. He was nearly eager to see what became of his little brother and that's why he arrived way too early. Only after finding a good spot to be able to see the entrance from the building without being seen himself, he was able to settle down a bit and watched as the other students arrived. Some came in groups, some alone but it took another 30 minutes until he saw the person in question. Shizuo was walking next to Shinra, a student he knew from middle school. So they were friends. What amazed Izaya most was that Shizuo had bleached his hair. It matched his golden eyes. The rest of his looks were great too and only his face gave away that they were siblings. There was no way to deny that. Satisfied with the one-sided encounter, Izaya walked to the great hall where the ceremony for the first years would take place.
One week later, Shizuo had been fighting against the soccer club because of… because of… he already forgot why but Shinra came together with someone. That guy was clapping his hands and smiling in a way that was very familiar. Shinra introduced him.
"That's Orihara Izaya. We went to the same middle school."
It had been about ten years since they saw each other but for Shizuo it wasn't a meeting he had been looking forward to. The blond one knew he would get in trouble if he tried to attack Izaya. It had always been the case when they were kids and he never won a fight. So Shizuo simply said: "You piss me off."
Okay, certainly, it wasn't the best thing to say if he wanted to avoid trouble but that was the nicest thing he had to say to that certain person.
"Ohh, too bad. I thought you and I could have some fun."
At this point it might have been intelligent to walk away but something held him back. Maybe he even wanted to talk a bit more with his brother? No, definitely not. Really!
"Don't be like that, Shizu-chan."
That one sentence was enough for Shizuo to forget what he tried to tell to himself earlier. It was an insult to be called that way. Like the past years never happened, like it wasn't his brother's fault that Shizuo didn't even know his parents' faces anymore. He attacked Izaya and said person simply dodged that attack and vanished from Shizuo's sight. This guy had gotten really fast! Looking around, Shizuo tried his best to not be attacked by surprise but it was useless. Just a second later, Izaya had cut his chest with some kind of knife. Nothing serious but the score was in favour of his opponent right now and that was the one thing he wouldn't ever tolerate. While Shizuo's rage was reaching its peak, Izaya decided it was best to change the location and ran away. Both already had forgotten that they had been in a place called 'school' and that they soon had to attend something like 'classes'. That was why Shizuo followed without a second thought and, after passing some streets and corners, he ended up being hit by a car. Gladly he wasn't injured badly but there was no way to win this chase now. With Izaya paying the driver, he was entirely humiliated and silently admitted that this was his brother's win once again.
A while later, in Shinra's apartment, the twins met again but Celty could somehow hold Shizuo back before anything serious happened. After both got their treatment and were chased out of the apartment, Izaya surprised himself and Shizuo with the question whether the younger brother wanted to come to his apartment for a while. The blond one asked:
"Visit mom and dad?"
"No, I already have my own apartment."
"Then why should I step into the lion's den?"
He earned a bright smile. "No reason. You don't have to."
Shizuo knew that he would definitely tap into a trap if he went with Izaya but to maybe get to know something about his parents was something he would take the risk for. He called home to say that he would be late and that they shouldn't wait for him for dinner and followed Izaya.
