Hi everyone ! Here's another chapter. I'm hoping to finally finish this fic before the summer ends! I think this chapter is a bit longer than my previous ones. So Enjoy!


"Why did you save me!" The blonde teen struggled underneath the informant. Izaya had managed to drag Kida back to his apartment in Shinjuku after the blonde's attempted suicide. His face was red and he panted heavily.

"Hush, Masaomi." Izaya grinned. "Or else I'll have to hit you again."

"Get off me." Kida demanded with a stern look.

"Fine." Surprisingly, the raven moved over. "But, what will you do now? After all, Ryuugamine-kun thinks you're dead." The blonde flinched at his words which amused him. "Looks like you don't have many other options." Kida stared back at him with a horrified look.

"You're staying here Masaomi."


3 weeks later . . .

Mikado and Anri left school together in silence. Ever since Mikado had witnessed that event, he never got back to his old self. Whenever Anri would ask what's wrong, he couldn't muster up the courage to tell her what he saw.

"Mikado?"

"Huh?"

"That boy is staring at you again." She pointed out to an another Raira Academy student with short black hair who was probably a couple years below them.

"I'll see what he wants. You can go ahead without me." Mikado began to walk towards to boy until she felt a tug on his sleeve.

"Do you know him?" Anri asked worriedly.

"Sort of."

Anri's face didn't change as she let go of him. Mikado turned to her and placed his hands on her shoulders gently.

"It's alright. He might know something about Masaomi." He smiled weakly at her. "I'll find him. I promised didn't I?" Anri's eyes lit up at him. She nodded shortly after. "I'll go investigate. Get home safely." He watched her turn and departed.

"You sure are smooth senpai."The boy chuckled.

"Aoba-kun, what's new?" Mikado reverted back to his serious tone.

"I asked around the area where it took place. You would think if such an event took place, there would be a commotion about it. But there wasn't. No one saw or heard anything. No one even reported that someone had jumped. Strange isn't it?" Aoba finished.

"I'm aware of that… But I saw him jump with my own eyes. How could anyone survive?" Mikado's hands clenched into fists.

"The balcony." Aoba smirked. "It's possible he was able to grab a hold of it before he hit the ground. Perhaps he changed his mind."

"I'd like to think that." Mikado said unsure of himself. "Why would he run away though?"

"Because he's a coward." As soon as those words came out, Mikado shot a death glare at his kouhai. "Ahaha… just kidding… I mean, perhaps he couldn't face you and Sonohara-san. Though I kind of doubt that's the reason…But we're not too certain that he's even alive. It's possible that someone already recovered his body."

The silence crept over the two of them again as they pondered some more thoughts.

"Ne, senpai. Aside from the fact that he was acting different, has he been seen with other people before that happened?" Aoba asked.

"Not that I recall…" Mikado thought deeply. "Wait a minute… There was this time. He came to school like he was in pain. He told me that he got chased around by a guy after he asked for his girlfriend's number." Mikado's eyes widen. "A couple weeks ago… I saw him and another guy in an alley. I don't know what they were doing. Is there a connection?" Mikado gritted his teeth in frustration.

"You're letting this get to you senpai."

"Are they both… the same person?" Mikado continued.

"Even if it could be, you can't recall what he looks like." Aoba sighed.

"No… there's one person who might know." Mikado's face darkened as he turned towards Shinjuku.


"Masaomi."

The informant called out to the blonde who was sitting on his sofa from his office desk. Kida sat silently with his head down ignoring the man.

"Why haven't you called Ryuugamine-kun yet?" The informant continued. "I'm sure you're aware that he probably speculated that you're still alive."

Kida remained silent.

"Did it ever occur to you how much trouble-"

"Shut up!" Kida stood up abruptly. "Just mind you own business for once!"

"Now, now." The man stood up from where he was sitting and approached the teen. "Is that any way to talk to the person who just saved your life?" He pulled the teen closer so their faces were almost touching. "I think I deserve a little something." He grinned widely.

"I never asked for you to save me." Kida glared back at the man.

"Hm. You're quite a handful Masaomi." The raven stepped back and took a seat on the sofa. "Ryuugamine-kun is probably searching feverishly for clues."

"…Why are you bringing him up all of a sudden?" The blonde asked still standing.

"He and that girl even broke up because of you." The raven went on.

"Wait, what?"

"Oh, did I not mention that already? Haha, sorry my apologies." The man scoffed. Seconds later he felt a forceful tug on the collar of his shirt.

"Izaya-san, what are you trying to pull?" Kida was on him now. He gritted his teeth when all he met was that menacing grin. Suddenly, the bell rang and Kida's hands loosened up.

"Looks like we have a guest." The informant pushed the teen off him and stood up. "This ought to be interesting."

"Who's at the door?" Kida asked.

"Who do you think it could be Masaomi?" A few seconds passed by and Masaomi's jaw fell open when he finally realized.

"You…" Kida jumped up at the sound of the bell ringing again. "Why are you doing this!" His hands clung to his head trying to get his thoughts together.

"This could take a while. I suggest you hide if you don't want to be seen."


"Welcome!" Izaya greeted his guest excitedly.

"Orihara-san." The Dollars Leader bowed his head before stepping inside of the apartment.

"How's everything? Would you like anything?" Izaya asked as he and Mikado walked over to his sofa.

"That's alright. I'm fine. Thank you." Mikado replied in a monotone voice.

"No problem. So what brings you here today?"

"Orihara-san. It's about Masaomi." Mikado got to the point. "He's…been acting differently lately. You two were close weren't you?"

The question made the informant blink a couple times.

"Well yes I suppose." Izaya said it clearly, hoping to reach the blonde's ears wherever he was hiding. "He is almost like my younger brother I suppose." Izaya chuckled to himself after picturing the look on the blonde's face.

"I see then…"

"Ne, has something happened to him?" Izaya asked with a worried expression.

"I'm not sure and that's why I'm here."

"He sure has been acting differently. I noticed as well. It wasn't until you moved here though."

"Orihara-san." Mikado faced the man with a determined look. "Don't pretend you don't know. Masaomi is missing…And I can't shake off this feeling that you know something about it."

"…I'm afraid I can't tell you where he is."

"Why not!" Mikado raised his voice.

"It's not because I don't want to tell you. I want to help him as much as you do." Izaya explained. "However, I haven't been able to locate him myself."

"…Is that true?" Mikado said in a low voice.

"It is." Izaya replied with a somewhat concerned expression.

"I understand…There's another reason why I'm here." Mikado became serious again.

"And that would be?"

"Would you happen to know about the man who has been chasing him around Ikebukuro?" The teen's eyes shifted towards the man.

"That…" The informant grinned widely. "That kind of information is classified."

"What do you mean?" Mikado's eyebrows furrowed.

"You see, it's against my policy to give out personal information."

"Please Orihara-san! This is really important!" Mikado pleaded.

"Sorry, no can do kiddo." The raven said as he crossed his arms. "But I mean, if it's really that important to you…" He watched the teen's facial expression with much amuse.

"…I get it." Mikado's said with a dead pan tone and began to remove his school blazer. He felt those mischievous red orbs watching him intensely. The teen began to unloosen his tie.

"Oho?"

"I'm just a kid. I don't have a lot of money." Mikado continued to unbutton his pants. "All I've got to offer is my body…"

"Hm. You agreed to this so easily." The informant began to unbutton his jeans as well.

"I'm doing this for Masaomi's sake." The Dollars leader hesitantly approached the man whose legs were already sprawled across the sofa. He got on the man steadily and positioned his rear over the exposed member. He didn't meet the man's eyes and kept his face down.

Izaya watched him with an amused grin. He couldn't help but imagine what was going through the blonde's head right now. He turned his focus to the Dollars leader in front of him who still hadn't lowered himself. Izaya noted that the teen was taking deep breaths and trembling.

"Tch." Out of impatience, Izaya grabbed hold of Mikado's hips and forced him down onto his member.

"Aahh!" Mikado couldn't help but cry out in pain. He covered his mouth, trying to suppress his voice.

Izaya grew more excited at what was unfolding. He let his hands wander under the boy's shirt and let them feel his body.

Mikado couldn't ignore the pain he was experiencing. His hands clung to the informant's shoulders. The pain was too great that he hadn't noticed Izaya's wandering hands.

"Hurts?" Izaya shifted his hips as he watched the boy.

"Kind of." Mikado took deep breaths to help cope with the pain.

"Why are you going this far for him?" Izaya lifted Mikado's chin so that they're eyes met.

"…He'd do the same for me."

Izaya was taken aback by the response. Out of nowhere, his hands pulled Mikado's face so that their lips touched.

Mikado's eyes went wide at the sudden movement and tried to move back but the informant had a strong hold on him. After a few seconds, he was released. Before anything was said, Izaya's hips began to move faster. The teen's eyes began to water but he continued to suppress his voice as much as he can.

The raven became frustrated. He pushed Mikado downed so that he was now on top of him on the sofa.

Mikado was faced with the older male's hungry eyes. His serious demeanor was shattered and couldn't help but feel frightened about what was about to come.

Izaya took note of that frightened look on the boy under him and began to thrust harder and faster, making the boy whimper. Mikado grew weaker with each thrust. After a few moments, Izaya released inside the boy and pulled out satisfied. He lingered over the tired boy examining the work he's done.

"You're done now right?"

"Yes, yes." Izaya said before getting up and buttoning his jeans back on.

"Alright then." Mikado sat up and reached for his pants as well. "Now about Masaomi."

"I know, I know… Let's see." Izaya pondered. "The man who's been harassing Kida-kun."

Mikado listened intently despite the pain he was feeling.

"Is Shizuo Heiwajima of Ikebukuro." The informant answered.

"The strongest man?" Mikado asked confused.

"I don't know the details behind the reason why." The raven continued. "But if you're that curious, maybe you should ask him yourself~"

"I see."

"Well that seems to cover everything then." Izaya turned and began to walk towards his desk. "If there's anything else you'd like to know, be sure to stop by~" He waved a hand over his shoulder.

"One more thing Orihara-san."

"Hm? Yes?" Izaya turned around.

As the older male turned, his abdominal felt a surge of pain. He was knocked back to his desk and his hands covered his abdomen. Izaya looked up to see Mikado in his cool demeanor.

"In case this is the only chance I get to see you." Mikado said before exiting the apartment.

After a few moments of silence, Izaya began to laugh.

"Hahaha! I can see now why you like him."

"You fucking bastard!"

Out of nowhere, Kida charged towards the raven, eyes filled with tears. Izaya was able to notice the incoming attack and push the blonde away from his direction.

"You know Masaomi-kun..."

Kida got off the ground and glared at the informant.

"Ryuugamine-kun is really something."


"So how'd it go" asked Aoba who was leaning against a wall.

"Well, I suppose." Mikado replied as he adjust his school neck tie. "I did confirm something though."

"And what would that be?" Aoba bounced off the wall and followed after his senpai.

"Masaomi is definitely alive."
