hi everyone, this is the sequal from Second Chance I hope u like it.

[b]part 2 : Change of Heart

- [/b]

Since maeda surrender everything come back to normal. I do my usual actvities as detective in this police department and handle many cases I also cant feel minami presence inside me anymore. I think her job has finished in here. I glad I could help her. in my pass I also a yankee and I could feel what she feels. Looking at her I feel like I look at my self in a old time.

For maeda, she is now under our attention. She is in her training actually. Our department decided to forgive her and let her go in one condition, she join our department and help us in handling our cases. I was there as the head chief ask her about this, at the first I could see that she has doubt about it but then she smiles and said that she agree to join us but also in one condition, she still can do her part time in the hospital and study to being a nurse. Well, minami has told me that she and maeda promise to study seriously in order to become a nurse. I guess she still keep up their promise.

As maeda agree to join our department she has gone through some special training. So she is brought to the training camp and has a training in there for around 6 months and during that 6 months I haven't heard any news about her until today. Today the chief said that maeda has finished her training and achieve perfect score in every course from physical training to intelligence training. Now I already arrive at the chief office waiting for her arriving.

"so, detective takahashi how is your work?" the chief ask me

"nothing special sir. Everything goes fine and already solve."

"glad to hear that."

Suddenly we heard a knock at the door.

[i]*knock …. Knock…[/i]

"yes come in please."

"thank you sir, sorry I'm late."

That voice sound really familiar to me.

"hahaha, its okay. Now detective takahashi let me introduce you to the new crew here Maeda Atsuko. I bet u still remember her don't you takahashi san."

I turn around to look at the person in front of me and what this. There is standing in front of me a girl with a police uniform. She looks so different plus I think her hair is shorter. And wait…. What happen to me… my heart… why…is it…

"Long time no see detective." Maeda lure her hand to and we handshake

"uh…ah yeah, its been a long time maeda. And I totally cant recognize you."

"ahahaha, she really change a lot don't u think takahashi san. More mature I could say."

Geeezz…. I think this chief try to tease me.

"okay takahashi from now on maeda will be in your unit and she'll be your partner."

"heee? My partner? Are you sure?"

"yeah I'm sure. So now please introduce her to the other staff okay."

"yoroshiku takahashi san." Maeda said as bow to me

"ah uhn , yoroshiku ne."

We then leave the chief office and headed to my department. On the way there we just keep silent but then she chuckle.

[i]heee? Why is she chuckling like that?[/i]

"errr….ano…is that something wrong maeda san?"

"ah~ nothing at all detective. I just miss seeing your face. It reminds me of someone." She said as give me a gentle smile

"huh? Ah….ah….uhm…. I see…" tsk, why am I stuttering? Argh… minami right. This girl is something.

Finally they arrive at takahashi division. Then the small detective introduce her to the rest of the staff in there

"Okay guys, this is Maeda Atsuko. I bet some of u have known her. she'll be in our division since today. Please be nice with her."

"Maeda Atsuko desu. Yoroshiku."

With that all the staff greet her. somehow I look at this girl now she already chance. I hope I could see that smile everyday.

Started that day maeda work with me in my division. She always beside me and help me in solving many cases. This girl has improve a lot and I could see she also has change. She is more cheerful. In the serious time she will look like a fierce eagle but in a free time she back into a good girl. Seriously , in a month she already have a nickname as the kuroi tenshi. Well , that nickname surely suit her.

Each time that I have spend to her make me go get closer to her. we have a lunch together , she always accompany me at the office when I got some unsolved case etc. I like her presence near me but I don't know but something else keep grow inside me each time I see her. that smile, those eyes everything on her hypnotize me. but I wanna know about something. Is she look me as takahashi the detective or she looks me as minami her bestfriend.

So, one day when only the two of us in the office I ask her directly.

"here is your coffee takahashi san."

"owgh thanks maeda." I drink the coffee and she smiles

"errr… maeda is it okay if I ask u something?" I talk to her seriously.

"ah yeah, sure, what u wanna know?" she look at me confusedly

"well, I just wondering if….. all this time who u look into my self."

"what do u mean?"

"well, u see… my face is resemble to your bestfriend minami right? Is it bothering you?" I could see the pain in her eyes.

"uh…uh…hm… well… its okay if u don't wanna to answer that I ….."

"its okay detective. I will be honest with you. At the first its kind a bothering me since u really resemble to her but I know you are not her and it really not bothering me. really. Your face maybe resemble as her but you are you and she is she. I'm sorry if I make u think like that."

"owgh…owgh…its okay maeda I just wanna make sure." I smile at her.

She smile back at me and I continuing my work. She accompany me the whole night. I could see that she fell asleep in her desk. I approach her and cover her body with my jacket and without realize I kiss her forehead and back to my sit.

[i]~meanwhile~[/i]

"woooiiii yuko, would u stop that think. U could freak out all the spirit in here."

"mhuahahaha, but I cant hold myself It is to fun."

"but yu…. *smash" yuko throw the ball into minami face

"o….ow…"

"grrrr…. Now u dead!"

"waaaaaaa….. the midget on the rage." Yuko said as running away from minami

"heeeey come back here. u also a midget rapappa leader."

"come on get me of you can."

As they chasing each other the spirit voice appear.

[i]my….my it seems u two enjoy your time in here together.[/i]

"owgh, spirit guardian. What bring u here?" yuko ask

[i]I wanna ask minami to do something to me.[/i]

"ah I see, it must be something related to maeda right?" yuko said as wink to the small yankee.

"shut up yuko."

[i]hahahahaha, yeah that's right. She needs to finished her final task. Come with me minami.[/i]

"there take this midget away, she can be so fierce full."

Minami turn around and stuck her tongue out as pointed her middle finger to the rapappa leader and leave that place.

"so, what u wanna me to do?"

[i]well, u see, u must be remember detective takahashi don't you?[/i]

"sure of course I remember her. she is my savior. I owe her."

[i]then its your chance to repay her.[/i]

"huh? How? What do you mean?"

Again the spirit guardian show minami a scene. Minami just smile look at the scene In front of her and amaze by the change of acchan behaviour. She is more cheerful now and more serious in go through her live. Then she see the detective that has already help her and realize something.

[i]so minami, u have seen that and have u know what u have to do?[/i]

Minami smile and nodded. " yeah I know. U wanna be the cupid right?"

With that minami start her first job as a cupid.

After a couple of week if silent finally the situation back to normal.

She Is the diva and also detective takahashi friend. They go to the recording studio to meet Ray and in there youran also work as a model.

Looking that the detective hurry go to the incident place

"atsuko , wait here. don't go anywhere. Watch the mom."

"there, its already clean."

"thanks atsuko u are a good nurse." She smile

"I already get used to this."

Then there is another silent. The detective actually wonder that the girl never call her with her first name even she already allow her to said that. Until today she calls her that when the incident.

Atsuko surprise with the sudden question. And she only silent.

I just thought that maybe it will be great if u called me with my first name. but…." Then something smooth sealed the small detective. the short haired girl kiss her. she surprise with the sudden action and just froze in place. Atsuko then break the kiss.
