Yay! Update! I spent the time to write out the story line, and exaclt what I'm going to have for each chapter. Hopefully this will keep me motivated to write more and update sooner if I already knwo exactly what I'm going to do. From what I've figured out, this story will probably be ten chapters. Eleven at most. So two chapter down, and eight more to go!
Oh and thanks to everyone that left me a review. Glad that you all like the idea. :)
It had been about a week since Kanda had started traveling with Lavi. And what a week it had been so far.
The two were currently sitting in Lavi's car, yet again driving to where ever they felt like going. It was raining outside; huge threatening clouds over head, dropping giant drops of water. Any moment now it would probably start thundering.
"I told you, we were supposed to turn left at the last street." Growled Kanda.
"And I'm telling you that it's the next street up!" argued Lavi. They were currently trying to find the street that would head towards the next big city, but unfortunately they couldn't seem to find the correct road right now.
"I said, go back!" yelled Kanda.
"And I'm telling you no! It's the wrong way! We'll probably end up in the middle of nowhere, like Antarctica!" Lavi screamed back.
"You can't fucking drive to Antarctica, dumbass! So turn the fucking hell around!"
"And I'm telling you no, damn it! It's the next street!"
"Give me the God damn steering wheel! I'm driving!"
"You can't drive while sitting in the passenger seat!"
"I don't give a shit! Give. Me. The. Steering wheel!"
"It's my car and I'm driving, so back the hell off!"
"Shit! Look out!" Kanda suddenly screamed.
Lavi looked up just in time to see a figure trying to cross the street. He swerved dangerously to the side, trying to avoid the person in the street. The road, slick from rain, was making it hard for Lavi to keep control of the car as it skidded across the road.
"Shit! We're going to hit them!" screamed Lavi when the car didn't turn fast enough. In a matter of seconds, the car had stopped moving, and both Lavi and Kanda quickly got out of the car to see if the figure lying in the middle of the street was still alive.
"Oh God…I hit some poor girl!" cried Lavi in distress when he noticed that the figure was a long dark haired girl lying on the ground.
"I can't fucking believe you hit someone." Mumbled Kanda in disbelief.
The girl suddenly groaned and shifted, causing both boys attention to be completely on her.
"Hey, are you okay? Are you alive?" asked Lavi.
Kanda helped answer the red head's question with a swift whack to the back of his head.
"Do you seriously think she would be okay after getting hit by a damn car? And why the hell are you asking if she is alive? You think a damn corpse could possibly be moaning?"
"I…I'm fine…."Mumbled the girl as she sat up. "I jumped out of the way just in time, so you only grazed me a little. It's not bad."
"Are…are you sure?" asked Lavi. "We should take you to a hospital to get checked out or something."
The girl vigorously shook her head.
"No! I'm…I'm alright. Thanks for your concern though."
Lavi gave her a questioning look, but otherwise said nothing else about her condition.
"Alright, but at least let us give you a ride. I'll feel really bad if I just leave you here."
"No, it's alright." reassured the girl "I'll be perfectly fine. You really don't need to do such a thing for me."
"Please!" begged Lavi "I'll have trouble sleeping for the next few nights because of my stupid conscious blaming me for leaving such a beautiful young lady here, especially after I had just hit her with my car!"
The young girl sighed, giving in to Lavi's pestering.
"Alright, but you can drop me off in the next town. I really wouldn't want to be a burden to you."
"It's no problem at all!" said Lavi. The red head tossed the key's to Kanda. "You can drive, Yuu-chan. Just make sure you don't hit anymore people."
"I said not to call me that, dumb ass." Snapped Kanda "And it was you who hit someone. I haven't hit anyone yet."
Kanda climbed into the driver's seat while Lavi and the girl got into the back.
"I just want to make sure you're alright." Replied Lavi as the girl asked why he was getting into the backseat as well.
"O…okay. But I told you, I'm alright." Said the girl.
"Just making sure." Replied Lavi. "Are you hurting anywhere?"
The girl shook her head in no.
"Alright. Well feel your ribs and just make sure nothing is broken or sticking out."
The girl gave him an odd look, but did as she was told. She shook her head in no again.
"Good." Said Lavi as he let out a sigh of relief. "So I never actually caught your name. I'm Lavi, and that bastard with the ten foot pole up his ass is named Yuu-chan."
"I told you not to fucking call me that!" screamed Kanda from the front seat. "Call me Kanda. Nothing else."
The girl couldn't help but smile at the two boys. They were very interesting.
"My name is Linali Li. It's very nice to meet you, Lavi and….Kanda."
Kanda grunted in response, rather than just answering her.
"So what brings you out here, Ms Li?" asked Lavi, leaning back into his seat.
"Just call me Linali, and I was actually looking for someone." She replied
"Eh?" asked Lavi "Really? Yuu-chan is looking for someone too! So who are you looking for?"
"My brother." She answered "I got separated from him a little while back. A couple weeks now, maybe a month. I'm not sure. But I need to find him, so I'm just traveling around until then."
Lavi suddenly grinned at her, his lips stretching unnaturally far across his face.
"Then you can travel with us!" declared Lavi. He threw his hands up into the air for good measures.
"Eh?!" asked Kanda and Linali at the same time.
"I…I can't ask you to do that! You're already giving me a ride. Taking care of me as well would just be too much!" said Linali.
"Oh, nonsense!" said Lavi, still grinning at her "It will be no trouble at all! And like the saying goes, the more the merrier!"
"You dumb ass!" growled Kanda "We can't just go picking up anyone we please and let them travel with us."
"Tsk, tsk, tsk." Scolded Lavi "That's no way to speak about our new traveling companion. Besides, I let you stay, so why can't she? Besides, this is my car."
The car suddenly screeched to a halt as Kanda slammed on the brakes. Lavi, who had forgotten to buckle himself in, flew from his seat, flying in the air for a few second before his face came crashing down against the floor of the van.
"Fine then, you damn baka Usagi." Huffed Kanda "Since it's your car, you drive. I'll stop bitching and complaining about her on one condition though."
"What's that?" mumbled Lavi as he picked himself up from the floor. He rubbed at his face, trying to massage the pain away and to see if anything was damaged.
"At the next motel we come across, I get to have my own bed." Said Kanda. The tone in his face clearly said that this was a demand that Lavi would not be able to refuse.
"As much as I would love to share a bed with our pretty new companion here," said Lavi, gesturing towards a blushing Linali "I don't think she would be too fond of that prospect."
"I wasn't telling you to sleep with her." hissed Kanda "I was saying that you would have to sleep on the floor. After all, you can't let our pretty new companion have to sleep on the floor and suffer such a thing, now would you?" asked Kanda, mocking Lavi's earlier words. There was a smug grin on the long haired boy's face. An already clear victory.
Lavi bit at his lip, assessing the situation. He really, really did not want to sleep on the floor of some trashy motel. Motels were definitely not known for having extremely clean floors. Most motels weren't even free from rat infestation. Maybe he would be able to get an extra room, since money wasn't exactly a problem. But Kanda and Linali might be curious as to where he got all the money. He wasn't exactly too fond of the idea of them knowing that he was the heir to a several billion dollar fortune. Who knows what might happen then (not that he didn't really trust them, but better safe than sorry right?)
"Fine." grumbled Lavi, seeing no way out of the situation.
"Good." said Kanda. "Now come and take the damn steering wheel and drive you own damn car. Just make sure you don't run over any more innocent people, Baka Usagi."
Lavi swore he saw a sadistic grin on Kanda's face as the Japanese boy slid out of the driver's seat and climbed into the back of the van with Linali.
Lavi wasn't too happy about the fact that they had come across a motel that very night. He had been hoping it would be a couple of days before they came across one, and hopefully by then, Kanda would have forgotten about their little deal. No such luck there.
"Y…Yuu? It's creepy down here…" mumbled Lavi from his spot on the floor.
Kanda couldn't help but groan and bury his face further into the pillow in an attempt to drown out Lavi's whining.
"Yuu…." Lavi continued to whine.
"Don't fucking call me that. And besides, it's just the damn floor. It's not going to suddenly open up and swallow you."
Lavi let out a small whimper of fear.
"Easy for you to say since you're not the one sleeping on the floor. I wouldn't be surprised if the floor did suddenly swallow me. I really don't want the floor to eat me. I don't even taste very good…." Lavi continued to complain. To Kanda it sounded like Lavi was trying to convince the floor that he wasn't very good to eat. It was as if Lavi really did believe the floor to be alive. Kanda wouldn't be too surprised since Lavi did seem to get a bit paranoid at times.
"Lavi, if you like you can take my bed and I'll sleep on the floor." offered Linali "It's the most I can do after all that you've already done for me."
"No, no, no." disagreed Lavi "I won't allow you to switch with me. It would just be too ungentlemanly of me to do such a thing."
Kanda couldn't help but snort at Lavi's words.
"Just shut up and go to sleep you two." commanded Kanda.
Silence swept through the room. Kanda was just about to drift off to sleep when Lavi suddenly screamed. Kanda felt his own bed dip down since the red head had probably jumped onto it.
"What the fucking hell do you think you're fucking doing?!" screamed Kanda.
"Th…there was something crawling on me!" cried Lavi "It might still be on me! Quick! Turn on the light! Make sure it's off! Hurry!"
"Shut the fuck up and stop whining like a girl!" snapped Kanda. "You're slightly insane, but otherwise totally fine. So get back on the damn floor since there is no way in hell I'm sharing this bed!"
"Don't make me go back there!" begged Lavi "Please don't be so cruel to me Yuu-chan! Please, I'm begging you!"
"Get off the fucking bed!"
"Um, Lavi, "interrupted Linali "If you don't want to sleep on the floor, why don't you just sleep I your car?"
The simple brilliance of Linali's statement stopped both boys in their struggles, especially since neither (idiots) had thought of sleeping in the car as an alternative.
"You're brilliant, Linali!" cried Lavi as he hurled himself across the room in the direction he assumed that Linali was in. But since it was dark, his aim was a bit off, causing him to trip over the small bag that Linali had carried in with her.
Lianli sighed at the overall oddness of her new friends. She smiled. She liked the idea of having friends.
"Fine." huffed Kanda. "Be glad that Linali saved you sorry ass so you don't have to sleep on the floor. Just make sure you don't sleep in the nude. I don't want to go down to the van tomorrow morning and seeing you but naked and sprawled across the seats."
Lavi grinned. "You know you'd like it, Yuu-chan."
Lavi was immediately hit in the face with the bible that all motels kept in the drawers of the bedside tables. How Kanda had been able to see Lavi in the dark and be able to hit him was beyond the red head. With a grin and a quick "Good night!", Lavi left the room with his bag and car keys in hand.
Kanda fell back onto his bed. He couldn't help but sigh in relief at the red head's absence. Kanda could hear Linali giggle on the other side of the room, whether from Lavi's antics or his own relief, Kanda didn't know, nor did he care. He was going to enjoy every bit of this silence, and finally get some well deserved sleep.
Okay, so that was chapter two. Hopefully everyone likedit, and hopefully it was as good as the first chapter, if not better. Next chapter, Lavi, Kanda and Linali meets Daisya! I will try and update as soon as I can! Again, thanks to everyone who left a review!
