Chapter 5: Uncovered Memories
New chapter, hope you enjoy it, and have a good time in Ireland. Thank you. JK, but I do hope you have a good time reading this late chapter, and a special thanks to those people who have also read and reviewed my other story, Bullet in the Dark!
A blinding flash of red light.
He was pushed back by the men, backed to the wall.
There was no escape.
"Put your hands up!" the police yelled. "We know you set fire to the church!"
"I didn't! I swear I didn't!" he yelped. His hands were up into the air protectively.
"It doesn't matter if you did or not… Just come with us. If you're innocent, it won't matter!"
He didn't believe them.
Bastards, every single one of them.
His eyes glowed.
"I'm not! You're all liars!" he screamed at them.
"Calm down! Just come with us, and nothing will happen…!"
A rumble of thunder roared through the night sky.
"You can't take me! I didn't do it!"
Suddenly, gunshots ran through the night.
Two men fell, dropping into the concert, turning it dark, dark red.
The remaining jumped up; their attention now turned towards the direction the bullets came from.
"What are you doing?!" A loud male voice asked, yelling.
He could barely make out the silhouette of a tall man, hair in a stubborn Mohawk, with a hawked nose; a perfect bird of prey.
"W-who are you?" one of the men called out, voice trembling in intense fear.
"I don't know… I think I was the guy you met at the park yesterday, but maybe that was me sitting in the car flipping you off. You take a pick!"
"Don't play games with us!"
"And why the hell not?"
"Just answer the question!"
"Better follow me, then!"
He jumped off the wall, looking for a moment as if he was flying.
The hawk ran away from the alley. "Come and get me," he taunted, leading the police away from him.
Was it possible that he was trying to help?
At any other give moment, he would have run.
This time, he was too stunned.
He watched the hawk, or so it seemed, plunge into the darkness.
Doubts flooded his head. What if they caught him? Or what if they came back for him, and waste everything that has happened?
He crouched down like a cat, preparing to spring, looking around carefully.
No one was in sight.
He ran, fast as he could, blood pumping, mind racing.
He had to do something, something so that what the hawk had done for him hadn't been done for nothing.
There had to be something he could do.
And there was always that saying: can't beat them, join them.
He would never join the so-called good guys, the men that put him in this positions.
So that left him one chose: the Yakuza.
The only question was, would they accept him?
Françoise woke with the sun shining cheerfully on her face.
Her legs were horribly cramped, and her back stiff. She turned, trying to get more comfortable, groaning.
Her face rubbed against the stiff, leather couch.
It was then that she remembered where she was: with the Japanese Mafia, working for the Mafia leader himself.
She looked down, her eyes quickly adjusting to the light.
The young man that caused her so much confusion was still asleep, his chest rising in an even rhythm, looking relaxed, and… his age.
She knew that the young man in front of her had suffered; how else would he be in a gang she only knew from television and books just a day ago?
Getting up as slowly as she could, she looked out the window.
Tokyo was indeed a city of surprises.
One day she was barely getting four hours of sleep each night, the next, she was almost raped by a handsome gang leader.
He stirred the faintest bit, showing that he was coming around.
He groaned, as she had done, squirming to the side, then moving again, onto his back.
Eyes slowly opening, then quickly clamped down as the sun was on his face.
"Fucking sun. Why can't it be night all the time?" he muttered, selfishly, childlike.
"Good morning…?" Françoise whispered.
He strained to look at her, surprised even, that she was there. "Oh. It's you."
"I'm sorry a-about last night, I really am-"
He interrupted her before she could say another word. "Don't mention it."
He got up slowly, as if still in pain. Standing up, he took off his shirt and unwrapped the bandage.
Looking at the slightly bloody wound, he hissed and glared up at her. "Damn!"
"I truly am really sorry."
He was about to retort, but stopped short. Walking towards the bathroom behind her, she heard him turn on the shower, leaving her alone in the room.
She couldn't understand anything.
One moment he seemed like a regular guy, the next he was as heartless as they come.
" Mr. Kugaikotsu. Our spy has reported that there is a new player in the game: a young woman by the name of Françoise Arounl. She is 18 years of age, going to school on a scholarship."
"What is her relationship to Shimamura?"
"It seems her younger brother, Ivan Whisky, is a constant visitor to the bar. He soon owed money, and as usual, Shimamura called his family. As an orphan, Arounl is Whisky's only family left. They struck a deal shortly after midnight: Arounl will work for Shimamura for three months."
"As a whore?"
"I doubt it."
"But she could work for us?"
"Excellent. Keep watching her."
"What are we going to do?" Françoise asked, bored after sitting for about half an hour, waiting for 009 to come out from the bathroom.
He eyed her curiously, looking at her just slightly mussed her and flashing tropical ocean eyes.
She was different from anyone he had ever known, sweet and sassy. Who knew what potential she had?
She could be worth something after it, it seemed.
If she only understand what she had gotten into.
I'm sorry for updating so late, but I've had writer's block and no time. It's not my fault, folks! Extremely sorry, and hope you forgive me!
