On the busy streets of Ikebukuro, two men were playing a game of cat and mouse. Shizuo Heiwajima chased Izaya Orihara through the streets, as usual. Ikebukuro's residents were familiar enough with this scene that they knew to stay away from the two, if they didn't want to get hurt.

Mairu and Kururi always said that "Ikebukuro's the only place where you can find flying vending machines and garbage cans"!

And true to that statement, a vending machine was flying through the air at this very moment.


Said man stepped to the right, and dodged the heavy machine by a couple of centimetres. A sly grin appeared on his face, irritating the blond even more.

"Tsk, tsk, Shizu-chan~! If only you were a bit stronger, you might be able to hit me for once!"

"Damn it!"

This time, Shizuo ripped a stop sign out of the ground and twirled it around. Izaya jumped over it, still grinning.


"My, my, Shizu-chan~! You should learn to control your temper!"

"I told you to stay out of Ikebukuro! Why the hell do you keep coming back?"

The informant skillfully dodged the garbage bin that was launched at him and scooted closer to the debt collector. Shizuo cursed and tried to escape, but found that he was trapped between Izaya and the wall.

Izaya moved in closer so that their bodies were almost flush against each other. He leaned in, and Shizuo could feel hot breath on his ear. Heat rushed to his face, a slight blush visible on his cheeks.

"The hell?"

"Because, Shizu-chan." The brunet shifted positions. His bright red eyes gazed into Shizuo's amber ones.

"I love you."

And he crushed their lips together.

A/N: Ta-dah~! I know I haven't posted anything up in, like, forever. But school started and the only time I have to write is during late starts or at lunch on Saturdays. *die* I wrote this a long time ago, actually. I just didn't have time to post it. *shot*

I'm not very happy with how it turned out, because it seems too similar to one of the scenes in Love and Hate. Nevertheless, I wanted to write a drabble about this. ^_^

Hopefully you like it! I finished a Gravi fic about a week ago. All I have to do is edit it, and post it up. I also wrote a monologue about starting school, as well as a (extremely) short mystery, which I'm thinking about putting on dA.

Well, until next time! Ja ne!
