Sorry it took so long to update... we really have no excuse xD the song for THIS one is Shinigami Haken Kyoukai no Theme from the Kuroshitsuji Musical II

Dead Master looked down at her feet as she and Light walked through the shinigami realm.

"She said it was a little past the dispatch society, right?" Light asked.

"Yeah, that's right." Dead Master confirmed. She glanced up from the ground and looked at their surroundings. They were just a small ways away from the Shinigami Dispatch Society so they would be at the Old Trancy estate soon.

"How much farther could it be?" Light sighed. They followed a street past the Dispatch Society, and found that as they went on, there was an increasingly larger number of trees on the sides of the road.

After about another half hour of walking, they found themselves at a gate. The gate was conveniently already open. Light and Dead Master stopped and looked at each other.

"well... Let's go!" Dead Master barked impatiently, and stepped inside. Light followed her.

They walked up the middle of the yard and up onto the porch. Light reached up and knocked on the door.

After a few minutes, a woman in a white butler uniform opened the door. "Hello, may I help you?"

"Um, yes," Dead Master said. "We're looking for someone named Ash? Where is he?"

The woman smiled. "Right here," Right before their eyes, her feminine features disappeared and her face dissolved to look more masculine. "My name is Ash Landers, how may I help you?"

Light hesitated before speaking.

"We need to get to Mu." Ash laughed in a tone that could only be described as insanity.

"Mu? Why should I help you get to Mu?" There was an awkward silence before Dead Master stepped forward. She revealed the scythe that had been kept safe behind her arm.

"You'll help us, or you'll die." She hissed. Ash chuckled again,

"fine. I'll help you get to Mu, but only if you do me a favor." Dead Master grumbled.

"What do you want?" Light asked. Dead Master turned sharply on Light,

"why should we do him a favor?" She whispered sharply.

"Let's just help him. The sooner we get to Mu, the sooner I can kill Black Rock Shooter, right?" Light explained. Dead Master grumbled, and put her scythe away.

"What do you want?" Dead Master asked.

"I want you to bring me someone," Ash stated. Light glanced over at Dead Master,


"Sebastian Michaelis."

Claude Faustus stepped out of the bedroom, and walked quietly to the dining hall. Sebastian was already waiting for him with the table already ready for breakfast.

"This morning's meal is Cajun Breakfast Casserole, with a scone, and a soothing white tea." Sebastian said, placing the tea cup in front of Claude's dining seat. Claude sat himself down, and gently sipped the tea.

"How utterly bland. However, it has such a soft, warm fragrance." He contemplated as he took another small sip from the cup.

"What are your plans for the day, master?" Sebastian asked.

"I was thinking you and I could spend some time together." Claude stated, with a dark smile.

"Yes, my Lord."

"Where is this, Sebastian Michaelis?" Light asked. Ash frowned, and then shrugged.

"I don't know. That's part of the job." He said with a half-deranged look.

"Find me Sebastian Michaelis and I'll get you to Mu," Ash said. With that the door slammed shut.

Dead Master turned to look at Light. "So what do we do now?"

"Obviously find this 'Sebastian'," Light sighed.

"I know that, the question is, how the hell do we do that?"

"Let's go back to the dispatch society and see if anyone knows..."

"Okay," Dead Master turned away from the door, and started walking toward the gate.

When Light and Dead Master arrived at the Shinigami Dispatch Society, they looked around for someone who would be able to help them.

The two of them stood in the center of a lobby that constantly had a reasonable number of shinigami there.

Dead Master was having a conversation with a girl who had cat ears and glasses. The girl had introduced herself to Light as Demon Cannon User.

Light didn't understand much of what they were saying, but it was something about whether Dead Master's scythe or Demon Cannon User's cannon was more effective in battle.

As they went on about that, comparing different theories they each had, Light looked around for someone that could assist their search for "Sebastian Michaelis." Out of the corner of hiseye he saw a grotesque, yet familiar figure: Ryuk.

"What are you doing here, Ryuk?" Light asked.

"I had nothing better to do. I was bored so I figured I'd swing by here." Ryuk said in his slightly monotone voice.

"Hey, Ryuk, do you know someone who can help me find someone?" Light asked. Ryuk chuckled.

"You know me Light, I won't help unless you've got something in it for me." Light grumbled, and reached into his book bag. After a minute of searching he pulled out what he had been looking for. One fresh, shiny apple.

"You tell me where I can find Sebastian Michaelis and I'll give you this apple." Ryuk gasped.

"Alright, Alright!" He exclaimed, grabbing at the apple.

"I can't help you find him, but I know someone who can." Ryuk said as he chewed happily on the apple.

"Who?" Light asked.
