Surprise for Jigen
It was a lazy Sunday afternoon in the Lupin–house. Jigen and Fujiko were sitting in the living room, playing cards and flirting like mad, Lupin was sleeping on the couch and Goemon was training his sword skills. "Poker, I win!" Jigen called out, smashing his cards on the desk in front of him. Fujiko showed her tongue to him, and he chuckled. "You are cute when you are angry, Fujiko." "Phh." came the reply. Lupin finally woke up from his nap and looked over to the two players. "Hey guys, what's going on?" "If we would've played Strippoker, Fujiko would be naked by now." Jigen informed his friend with a mischief glint in his dark eyes. Lupin chuckled, and Fujiko kicked Jigens shin under the desk. "Ouch!" the gunman yelped, jumping, and Lupin laughed. "Watching you two is better than any sitcom on TV." he then told his friends – who both gave him the evil eye. Suddenly they were disturbed by a ringing sound, coming from the front door. "Damn." Lupin murmured. "If that's Zenigata, we have a problem." "I'll go and look." Fujiko offered, getting up and walking over to the door. When she opened, a young woman, about twenty, stood in front of her. The woman's hair was blonde and cut short, her brown eyes looked at Fujiko with a stern expression and a cigarette dangled from her mouth. "Hi. I wanna speak to Jigen Daisuke." the woman now said. "Good for you. He's not here." Fujiko answered, being as careful as always. Suddenly the woman grabbed her collar and picked her up, letting her dangle in the air. "I know that he is here. Now make him carry his ass over here!" Fujiko fearfully nodded, and the woman let her down again. Fujiko quickly walked into the living room, where Jigen was now playing Dart with Lupin. "Who was it, Fujiko?" Jigen asked. "It's a woman. She wants to speak to you, Jigen." Fujiko informed her friend. Jigen raised an eyebrow before putting on his hat and walking over to the door, followed by Fujiko and Lupin. "Yes?" the gunman asked when he reached the door and the woman who leaned on the frame. "Can I help you?" "I hope you can." the woman said. Then she added one word that made Jigens eyes double in size. "Father."
"What?" Lupin cried out. "I didn't know that you have a daughter, Jigen!" "Neither did I." Jigen answered, staring at the woman with big round eyes. "What's your name, girl?" Fujiko asked. "CJ Harris. And his real name is Jack Daysner." CJ answered, pointing to Jigen. "From Jack Daysner to Jigen Daisuke. Not really intelligent." she then added. Jigen gave his daughter an angry look. "Anyway" CJ now continued, "I'm not here for smalltalk. I'm here to kick you ass, Jigen." "What? Why?" Jigen asked, confused. "I'm twenty-one now." CJ hissed. "All the years I waited for my dad to show up, but he never came. All the years I waited for a greeting card on my birthday or for Christmas, but it never came. And then I read the newspaper only to find out that my dad is a criminal, stealing various things with this jerk named Lupin." "But...I didn't even know that I have a daughter!" Jigen defended himself. "Liar!" CJ accused him. "Mom said that you knew about her being pregnant." "Hey!" Fujiko butted in. "Maybe we should discuss this inside, or do you wanna keep fighting on the doorstep?" Lupin opened his mouth to say something, when suddenly a black car stopped in front of the house with screeching brakes. "Shit!" CJ cursed. "They found me." The two windows on CJ's side went down, and three men with guns leaned out of them. Jigen and CJ pulled their – identical – guns in the very same minute and speed and shot three times. Every man fell out of the car with two bullet wounds in his chest, and the car sped off. Fujiko and Lupin just stared. "That's proof enough." Lupin finally said. "She is Jigens daughter."
One hour later, CJ wasn't as aggressive as she had been. Jigen had managed to convince her that he really didn't know about her moms pregnancy, and she believed him. Much to Lupin's and Fujiko's amusement, the two were so much alike, like twins. They used the same gun, smoked the same cigarettes, and CJ even wore the same clothes like her dad, complete with hat. Fujiko and CJ came along very well, as CJ did with Lupin. "Okay" CJ admitted, "seems as my mom told me shit about you. Sorry, Jigen." She broke into a wide grin. "It's cool to know that you are one of the best thieves in the world, Jigen." Jigen grinned. "And how do you earn your money, CJ?" Fujiko asked. "Oh, I do many things....I'm a jack for all trades." "Well...wanna join us?" Lupin asked. "Hm, why not." CJ finally said. "I bet you guys have lots of fun." "If you call it fun to steal things, race away from the police and shoot killers, we do." Jigen informed her. "Yep, that's what I call fun." CJ answered, grinning broadly, and everyone burst into laughter.
Later that day it happened that CJ and Fujiko were left alone in the living room, while Jigen and Lupin went to join Goemon in training. CJ grinned at Fujiko, who gave her an odd look. "What's so funny?" "You have the hots for Jigen, don't you?" CJ asked, and Fujiko turned bright red. "How do you know?" she asked confused. "Can you do mind-reading, or what?" "No" CJ chuckled, "but it's hard not to recognise it. You practically have hearts in your eyes when you look at him." "But why isn't he recognising it then? If even you notice within one hour, why didn't Jigen notice within the months he is with us now?"
