[b] Part 1 : Second Chance
[i]I'm sorry atsuko.[/i]
"This is not real right minami?"
All I could remember is just her shouting. Calling my name.
[i]Astuko. I'm sorry. Please live serious. Remember our promise.
After that shout everything turn dark. No one around me. I'm alone. But suddenly I could see a light. I go to where the light come from. And now suddenly around me turn to white. I try to explore the place then I could hear a voice.
"Huh? Who is it? Where am I ?"
[i]you are already in a spirit world minami.[/i]
"eh? That's mean I …."
[i]yess minami, u already dead.[/i]
"souka… then who are you?"
[i]I'm the spirit guardian in here. I guide all the spirit go to the spirit land and rest in peace in there.[/i]
"ooookaaaay…. Then why I still in here alone?"
[i]that's what I wanna to tell you minami. Now let me show u something.[/i]
After the spirit guardian said that I could see some vision in there. I shock as I look at the person in front of me. its atsuko. But different atsuko. Why? What happen? I ask to my self. I feel pain in my heart looking her like that. She looks so lonely. The vision then disappear and the voice come back.
[i]there, have u seen that. That the reason I couldn't send u to the spirit land right now. u still have something to settle up.[/i]
"what do you mean?"
[i]you have to help that girl to get out from her desperate. She still feel guilty for what happen to you.[/i]
"I'm the one that make atsuko like that. I … I …."
[i]its not fully your fault minami. The man reason that u haven't do one thing…[/i]
"huh? Whats that? I think I didn't make any promise or something."
[i]hmm… do u forgot that you have a promise to go to the amusement park with her and in there u plan to tell her your true feeling. [/i]
I frowned at what the spirit said. Yes it true that I plan to tell her my feeling to her. I … actually already fall for this girl, my own best friend. But now I gotta to help her out from this situation.
"so, how could I help her?"
[i]here I will bring u to somewhere.[/i]
With that word the sipirit bring me to some place.
Here I am. I arrive in a room. The room looks familiar. I look around and realize that I'm in a ward. I see someone laying in front of me.
[i]here we are minami. As u can see. This is a ward and the one u see in there is the patient. She is a detective and her live is already in danger. Only miracle that could help her.[/i]
"so what u wanna me to do?"
[i]hmmm… help your atsuko through her. get your spirit inside her and talk to herself in her underconscious. I know she will help you since I already pay attention to her. she a good detective. She will have a chance to get up from her coma and you will have a chance to help your atsuko.[/i]
"uhmmm…. So I just need to come inside her body and be part of her?"
[i]yes u right. Now go and do your work[/i]
I nodded and then begin walking to the detective body.
[i]owgh and one more thing. Atsuko cant know that u are inside her body, she mustn know about you minami. U understand?[/i]
Soon my spirit got into her body and my work begin.
[b]~a couple months after that~[/b]
"Detective takahashi, we should hurry find this school girl."
"I know that, its our job to get rid all of that bad guys. Find more information."
"Right away mam."
The assistant inspector left the room and leave the detective alone.
"hey, why u wont come up now? nobody here." the detective said as standing in front of the mirror in front of here.
Then a shadow appear beside the detective and there stand a school girl spirit with a yankee look alike "maa…maaa… I gotta make sure that u are alone detective since they cant see me it would make u look stupid if u talk by your own."
