"I can't believe this happened, it's just not fair." Shizuo said into the phone to his child hood friend.

"I'm really sorry you lost your apartment Shizuo, I know you didn't deserve it. I wish you could come and stay with me and Celty but we just don't have the room for another person." Shinra said sadly.

"Sigh…it's alright Shinra, I'll figure out something."

"Can't you go live with your brother?"

"I asked him but he's always going places because of his movies, and I really don't feel like dealing with all those screaming fan girls."

"What about Tom? He is your boss and you have been showing up to work on time every day and working overtime; he must be grateful enough to let you live with him."

"I couldn't ask Tom-san to let me stay with him; he's done enough by actually giving me a job and dealing with my temper."

"Well…will you be alright?"

"Yea I have to have all my stuff out of my apartment by tomorrow so I'll just have to figure out something by then. I already have all my clothes and other stuff packed up tight; the only thing left is to find somewhere to live…but I'm definitely not leaving Tokyo. Being Tom-san's bodyguard is a sweet job that I do not want to give up."

"How'd you lose your apartment anyway?"

"Well my landlord said that he had found a nice family that wanted to live in my apartment…so he gave it to them."

"Why would he do that if you already were living there?"

"He said that the family was very wealthy and willing to pay triple of what I pay for the apartment…he also said that most of the other tenets were afraid of me living there, including him. All the apartments next to mine are vacant because people are afraid of me, the owner thought that if the wealthy family moved in more people would move into the empty apartments."

"That really isn't fair, when did he kick you out?"

"This morning he told me over the phone to pack up my stuff and be out by tomorrow afternoon."

"Wait a minute he can't do that! Doesn't he need to give you a two week notice before kicking you out?"

"The family had paid him extra to have me out be tomorrow so they could move in as soon as possible. Tomorrow I'll go around and look for a new apartment."

"Can you afford it?"

"Not right now, but I can at least try to find an apartment so I don't have to make a house out of my suitcases in a dirty alleyway."

"I wish I could give you some money but I really don't have any to give right now."

"Oh it's ok Shinra, I'll be fine. I'll talk to you tomorrow I have to finish packing."

"Alright, good luck Shizuo." Shizuo clicked his phone off and sighed at his bare apartment. He slowly got to his feet and walked out of the apartment that tomorrow would no longer be his. After getting a pack of cigarettes from the corner store he took a long drag from one of them and leaned against an old brick wall.

"Shizu-chan it's 3 in the morning, I didn't think you'd be out this late." Shizuo turned his head to the smaller man standing next to him.

"I'm really not in the mood right now flea, there's really nothing you can say or do to make me feel any worse then I already do." Shizuo said turning his head away from Izaya and taking another drag from the smoking stick.

"What do you mean?"

"If you must know…I lost my apartment so I have nowhere to live…bet you're happy about that right?" Izaya was quiet for a while before speaking up.

"Actually I am partly to blame because of that…you see a man called me the other day asking for information on the available apartments in Tokyo. There were no available rooms in my apartment building so I gave him the name of yours." Shizuo dropped his cigarette and turned to the informant.

"I know you hate me and I know you're an evil person but I never would have thought you would go so low as to make me lose my home." Shizuo said looking Izaya straight in the eyes. Izaya felt a lump in his throat as he watched the blonde turn away from him and start walking away.
