It began in Koenma's office.
"Kyri?" Koenma's stare was rather penetrating as I shifted uncomfortably in place.
"Yes, sir?" I nodded.
"You do realize that you and your…" he paused. I shifted again. "…friend are being charged with a rather serious crime."
"Sir, if you'll let me explain—"
"There is no need for explanations, Kyri." Koenma's stare turned into a definite glare, and I shrank back. "Hyph has chosen to go to jail, rather than to do any community service."
That asshole! Maemi was fully expecting him to be in the hospital, greeting her with flowers like he does every morning, not locked up in some jail.
"I'm hoping that anger on your face isn't directed towards me." Koenma said, reminding me that I'm still in his office.
I shook my head, "No. Just Hyph."
Koenma nodded, "Hyph has chosen jail, however, if you would like, I have something that I could offer you as an alternative."
I frowned, "Is there any way I could do the community service for both of us?"
"It depends on how well this coming mission goes." Koenma said, "Get me the results I want, and maybe I'll think about it."
"Also, make sure to de-weed the garden. It's been awhile since you've been in trouble—it's sort of a mess." Koenma said, handing me a folder, "Here's the details. Get me the information, and I'll send my spirit detectives out to take care of the rest. All you'll have to do is pick up the report from them when it's over."
"Yes, sir." I nodded.
"Get out of here, then." Koenma said. I quickly left the room, opening the folder as soon as the door shut behind me.
He wanted information on some… thing named Calomnus. Apparently he had been taking out entire neighborhoods of humans. Spirit World was covering it up, blaming the deaths on a serial killer, but if he wasn't stopped soon, things could get pretty nasty.
I only knew one person who might have ANY idea of where to start. This was going to be a long day.
….Wow, that's kind of a horrible ending. Mostly because it's the beginning.
Well, that was a story written backwards, if anyone really cares.
…I actually might re do this again. I'm considering it. As strange as it sounds, through this little experiment of mine, I was able to work on these characters some more, and I think I've pretty much nailed down their personalities and everything.
I don't know. If you guys would like to see something else (that isn't written backwards and is updated hopefully more than once a year) with these characters, let me know and I'll think about it.
Otherwise, hope you enjoyed and thank you guys so much for sticking with me through all this.
