Disclaimer: I do not own any characters in Switch…

My first Switch fanfic and my second overall…

There's just too little Switch fanfics out there so I thought I'd contribute one. Hope you like!

~ Inside Summary ~ What if only Hal was new to the Narcotic Control Department? What if Kai was just faking his hyper cheerfulness and naivety, and his "switches"? What if a hidden world had existed all along beside the human world? AU. There will be OCs eventually. Characters will be OOC.

~ Background Info ~ Hal is nineteen years old, while Kai's outward appearance is eighteen.

Chapter 1

"Ah, Kai, there you are."

Eto Kai slipped into the main office, pausing when he heard his name being called. With his usual bright grin, he turned to the man sitting at the front of the room.

"Ohayo-gozaimasu! Sorry I'm late, Hiki-shachou. I overslept."

Hiki's mouth twitched up in amusement. "Again? Well, at least it's only a few minutes today. Come over here for a second. I'd like you to meet someone."

Kai turned his gaze on the blond-haired teen standing in front of the desk, observing him curiously. The man had a cool, emotionless expression on his face, and wore a pair of glasses that accentuated his cold green eyes. Those eyes stared back at him, giving away nothing; empty.

Kai inwardly sighed. What a boring expression.

"This is Kurabayashi Hal." Hiki leaned forward, resting his chin on his hands, a small smile on his face. "I'd like to pair you two together for future investigations. He's new in our division so show him the ropes, okay?"

Kai's gaze lingered on the shachou's face for a millisecond longer than needed before turning and beaming a smile up at his new partner. "Hajimemashite, Hal! I'm Eto Kai, but you can just call me Kai!"

The slightest hint of disgust and contempt finally filtered into Hal's green eyes. Kai watched with concealed amusement as his partner looked like he wanted to object to this new arrangement. Then, without a word and only a curt nod in Hiki's direction, he turned and strode in the direction of Kai's office.

Correction: their office.

Kai turned and let a dark, questioning expression flash across his face in the smiling shachou's direction before turning and bounding after the blond.

"Hal! Do you want me to show you the building later? Maybe we can get coffee together or something after that. This is going to be so much fun! I've never had a partner before!"

Kai hastily slid to a stop when the blond turned and pinned him with a death glare. "Never had a partner before?" His cold voice cut through the low murmur in the office. "I wonder why. Don't talk to me like we're friends. Good for nothing."

With that said, Hal turned again and continued on into the office.

Kai stared wryly after him. And this is the start of a beautiful relationship.

Putting a sulky expression on his face, the redhead chased after him. "Mou, Hal! That's mean!"

As Kai followed the blond into their office, he chanced a glance back at his boss. The dark blond still had that infuriating smile on his face. Shooting a scowl in the shachou's direction, Kai slipped into the office behind his new partner.

Hiki would explain later, whether he wanted to or not.

After all, Kai had specifically told him that he worked alone, more for his partner's sake than his own.

Very, very, very short but I'll update again soon and those will be much longer. I had to get it started first.

Please review!
