Hi everyone.. Here is my first story.. I hope you like it! Enjoy reading..

-CHAPTER ONE-

My name is Miyano Shiho.

Codename: Sherry.

I was once a member of a certain syndicate called the Black Organization. My job was to continue the project that my parents left – APTX 4869 – a drug that should kill instantly without showing any trace of itself in the victim's body. You could say that I'm an important person in the organization. I did everything they wanted me to do even if it was against my will. But what do I get? A dead sister. The organization plotted to kill her. The reason? No one cared to tell me. All they did was to lock me up in some place. I decided to end my life then and there so that they couldn't use me for their evil deeds anymore. I took the APTX 4869 and prepared myself to see mom, dad and Akemi-chan in the other life, but who would've thought that I was one of the lucky ones to be only shrunk back into a child. I was aware of this effect, since I saw one out of the ten mice who was injected by the drug, shrinking instead of dying. I sought the help of Kudo Shinichi, a high school detective, since I was aware that he, too, was shrunk by the drug. He was forced to take it when he witnessed an illegal transaction made by the Black Organization. From then on, I assumed a new identity.

I am now Haibara Ai.

Codename: Ice Queen

Well, that was ages ago. The Black Organization was now permanently terminated with the help of Edogawa Conan, Kudo-kun's shrunken identity, and another high school detective, Hattori Heiji. But still, up until now, I am working on the antidote that will hopefully change us back to normal.

"Haibara-san! Over here." Mitsuhiko shouted. We were at Tropical Land, enjoying the last few days of vacation. As usual, Kudo-kun was looking as bored as ever while the other kids – Mitsuhiko, Ayumi and Genta – are clearly enjoying themselves. As soon as they saw me, they ran excitedly.

"So, what did the professor say?" Ayumi asked.

"Nothing in particular," I replied. "But he gave me this." I handed them a piece of paper with different symbols and words that made no sense at all. "It seems like a deduction quiz or something." I added.

By hearing the words deduction quiz, they all snatched the paper from me, almost tearing it.

"Okay, let's go!" Genta said. "I'm all ready to yank my brains on this one. It's been a while since the professor made a game for us. I wonder what the prize would be, maybe he'll treat us sushi or eel." Then we heard his stomach growl, indicating that he's hungry again.

"Genta-kun…" Mitsuhiko and Ayumi groaned.

"You guys go ahead, I'll pass." I said then took a seat on a nearby bench.

"I'll pass also." Conan said. "We'll meet you guys later."

"Okay." The trio said, then left.

I gave Kudo-kun a suspicious glare which he returned with an innocent smile.

"Don't give me that look. I know you want something. Spit it out." I said.

"Come on, Haibara. Can't you pretend at least once that I'm not an open book for you?" I gave him a bored look.

"Maybe some other time."

He sighed. "Anyway, I was thinking of moving back to my own house."

"Can't live another day with the drunk 'Sleeping Kogorou'?" I teased.

"Hah! Try living with him. You'll see." He said with a disgusted look on his face. "I called Ran at the university earlier and informed her about my plan. She agreed. The thing is, I told her I would be staying at the professor's house so –"

"Alright. I'll inform you when she calls or something." I assured.

Conan sighed from relief. His attention turned to two kids, a boy and a girl, arguing about which ride to take. In the end, the boy agreed with the girl and just did what she wanted. He looked like he didn't have a choice anyway. I noticed that Conan was pretty amused by them. Maybe they reminded him of something?

"Hey, Kudo-kun." I called. He looked at me. "You still haven't moved on now, have you? I mean about Mouri-san finding another man."

He looked a bit shocked, mostly because I don't really ask this kind of question. I didn't think he was going to answer, but he did.

"Oh, I have. I'm happy that she's finally gotten over Shinichi." He noticed by suspicious gaze at him and laughed. "I'm serious."

"Whatever you say, Kudo-kun," I got up and started walking. "I believe you." I added sarcastically.

He stood up. "I was serious! And where are you going anyway? You can't just leave me here. That's rude."

"I'm buying groceries for dinner." I answered, ignoring his last remark.

"Aren't you gonna ask me if I wanted to help you?"

"Do you think I need your help?"

"Um.. Yes?"

"Wrong." I pointed at the three kids seriously analyzing the clue they were holding. "They need your help. Oh, before I forget –"

"I know. I know. I'm just gonna give hints." He said.

"I was gonna say, 'goodluck on figuring out the hint, edogawa-kun'." I grinned evilly and started on my way.

He was quite confused for a moment, then he finally realized.

"Oi, Haibara! Were you the one who made the quiz?" He shouted.

I ignored him and continued walking. You need a bit of challenge, Kudo-kun… I thought. I know being through child stuff all over again bore you to death.
