Conan wakes up in the middle of the night. He hears many sobs coming from Ran's room. He walks over to her room and peeks in through the door. There, sitting on her bed, sits a sad Ran. He goes inside quietly and says, "Ran-neechan?" He didn't really know what else to say.
Ran continues her sobs but manages to say, "C-can y-you go to sleep C-Conan-kun? I don't want y-you t-to see m-me like this." Conan looked at her, confused of what she just said. He couldn't understand all her stuttering.
He ended up ignoring the whole statement and asked her, "Is something wrong?"
"I've just been so weak lately. Shinichi keeps me waiting for so long that sometimes I don't think he's ever coming back." Conan hears her sobs get louder. The guilt was eating at him. Was now the time to tell her the truth? No, he told himself, it's too dangerous. He sighs, and tries to comfort her.
"Don't worry, Ran-neechan. I'm sure he'll come back soon." He jumped at his own word, 'soon', in reality he didn't know how long it would be. He sighed at the thought of it going on too long.
"And what if he doesn't? Is a case really more important than me? So many things happen that I wish I can tell him about. There's so many confessions that I want to tell him in person, and not over the phone. Conan, I don't think I can wait much longer." After she said that, Conan trembled. What did she mean by it?
"Well if you care for him and want to see him, then you'll wait. That's all he asks you to do. Nothing more." Conan says softly, slightly panicking. Why couldn't she just keep waiting? I'm coming back for sure. Isn't that all that matters? he thought to himself.
"But it's getting difficult. I need someone that will be there for me when I call to him." With that said, his heart dropped. He was there for her. She just didn't know it.
"Just wait. I know he'll eventually stay and not take off."
Ran answered immediately saying, "You just don't understand, Conan. You're trying to defend him but in reality, all he ever does is visit and take off. He'll never actually stay. I'm just tired of waiting..." Conan got mad at the fact that she said he didn't understand anything. He hated being referred to as a child, it got sickening after awhile. But then he realized she said she's tired of waiting for him.
His heart dropped, he quickly said, "What do you mean by that?"
She smiles at his curiosity, but the smile fades as she replies, "I'm moving on. He never mentioned any of his feelings. Does he even feel the same?" She sighed at her own question. Tears flowed down her cheeks as she sobbed, "What if he found some other girl already?"
Conan flinched at her question and quickly defends, "That's not true!" Ran looked at him with confusion. How would he know that? Conan sees her expressions and thinks of something else to say. "I mean, I'm sure he has the same feelings for you. That's why he told you to wait for him, right?" Conan felt proud of his reasoning, besides, it was all true. He pushed it a little further by assuring her, "I don't think he would EVER betray Ran-neechan by having someone else."
"There you go defending him, again," She says in a soft voice," You may think this, but where's your evidence? We have no idea what he's doing right now. It's hard to have someone who's never there for you. I'm moving on and forgetting that deduction freak." She sniffled at her own words. Conan, unable to say a word, was purely shocked. Did she mean what she was saying? How long has she been having these thought? He put down his head. He felt a little depressed. He fought off his tears and kept his head down. Ran looked at him with a frown on her face. Did she really just hurt his feelings? She was confused on his reaction to everything, but she shrugged it off. "Ok, it's time for bed. I'll see you in the morning. Goodnight, Conan," She says, barely audible.
"Night, Ran-neechan," Conan said with his head still down, walking towards the door. Then he lay in bed and stared at the ceiling. What a sad night, he thought, as he closed his eyes and went to sleep.
