Luce: My dear girl, I'm sorry to tell you this but…you don't own Katekyo Hitman Reborn!
Sam: B-but I had a dream that stated I did!
Luce: Dear, that dream was one of Viper's illusions.
Viper: *Le smirk*
It had been a month since Colonnello had moved in next door and he was usually over every day. Luce even went out of the way to buy him his own coffee mug.
They were having dinner as peacefully as they could in the Arcobaleno house hold, which meant that only a few knives were thrown and Viper's illusions were only half as scary as they usually were, when there was a rare knock on the door.
"Skull dear, can you get the door?" Luce asked the younger boy sweetly.
Skull sighed, but did so because no one bothered to disobey Luce. "Yes Mama Luce," He said.
She was scary enough on her own, but her mood swings were starting to kick in so whenever she asked someone something they either did as she asked or answered a question in a way that they knew she would like. Even Verde was doing what she asked instead of making Skull do it.
He returned a few minutes later with a confused look on his face. "Lal, I think your father is here." He said.
Lal, Colonnello, Fon, and Reborn stopped what they were doing and looked at him. Everyone noticed how the three men cringed and how Lal's muscles tightened stiffly.
"My parents were murdered when I was a teenager," Lal said finally, putting her fork down slowly. "I ended up raising my little sister Elizabeth until I was eighteen with the help of these three and then she went to live with our aunt in America,"
"There's a man outside who looks exactly like you though, and he was asking for you." Skull said. He put his hands on his hips. "But I told him that I wouldn't let him in because Lal never said anything about a man named Calder Mirch!" He said it as if it made him superior.
"Tell him to leave and never come back," Fon said grimly.
"He's not wanted here and he never will be," Reborn said, just as grimly.
"If he doesn't leave I'll kill him myself, kora." Colonnello said, reaching for his gun.
"B-but the thing is…he followed me in anyway." Skull said, chuckling nervously. "I didn't think it would matter since he's related to Lal-sempi!"
"He did what?" The three men yelled, extremely pissed off.
"Hello? Lal, are you in here? Ah, there you are my dear little sister!" A man who looked a lot like Lal said, walking into the room. Skull was right; the man could pass as Lal's father if he was fifty instead of thirty.
Before anyone could blink the man was surrounded.
Luce was behind him with a gun pointed to his head, "touch anyone in this house and I promise you that you will not die a happy death."
Reborn was at his right, holding Leon to the man's right temple. "I thought we scared you off years ago." He said a sly look on his face.
Fon was at his left, in a deadly stance. "I thought you were sent to prison." He said to the man.
Last but not least was Colonnello; he was at the man's front with his glock 19 pointed between Calder's eyes. "Didn't we teach you your lesson last time Calder?" He sneered, too angry to even say 'kora'.
Calder laughed, he had guts to do that with some of the most dangerous people in the world surrounding him and ready to kill him at any moment. "I just wanted to see my little sister; I haven't seen her since she was fifteen. Come to think of it I haven't seen you three in a while either. Seems like you've been doing well for yourselves if you live in such a magnificent place like this, I thought you wanted to live in the country Lally."
Reborn pressed Leon against Calder's temple. "Do you have a death wish?" He asked the man. "Lal happens to be very high up in the military you know, brother or not she's not afraid to kill you." He sniggered.
"You don't even have the right to call yourself Lal's brother anymore." Fon said.
"Lal, who is this man," Viper whispered to her friend. She may not seem like the type to be a concerned friend; but Lal and Luce were her best friends and whoever hurt them was going to have to deal with her.
Lal stood up silently, walked over to Colonnello, pulled him away from her disowned brother, and took his place.
"Lal what are you-"Colonnello started.
"Shut up, I have to deal with him myself for a moment. Once I'm done you can do whatever you please to him." Lal said, silencing him.
Calder smiled, and touched Lal's face with both of his hands. "You look like mother did." He told her. He turned her head in a few different angles. "You two could have been twins if she was still alive." He laughed when Luce and Reborn pressed their guns tighter.
"Calder, what are you doing here?" Lal asked finally. Her voice was monotone as was her face.
"I wanted to give you this." He pulled out a box from his pocket and gave it to Lal. "Happy birthday little sis,"
Lal took the box and threw it to Verde, who had been writing down notes the instant Calder knocked on the door. "Make sure it isn't dangerous, would you?" She asked even though it was more of a command than a question.
"Lally, I'm shocked; what makes you think I would do anything to hurt you?" Calder asked.
Colonnello punched the man in the face.
"That wasn't necessary to do Colonnello," Both of the Mirch's said.
"I'm not going to say sorry, kora." Colonnello told Lal.
Lal shrugged and rolled her eyes. "I'm done with him now. You guys can do whatever you want with him. I'll be in my room." She said, turning to leave. "Oh, and I don't want to hear a sound."
"Your wish is our command, Commander Mirch." Reborn smirked.
As much as the three boys wanted to kill him Luce and Viper did it since they wanted a piece of the bastard as they so lovely put it.
Knock, knock, knock.
"Come in," Lal said loudly. She was sitting on her wide window sill with a bottle of tequila that she kept in her mini fridge and her radio playing so that if anyone yelled the music would block it out.
Colonnello walked in, followed by Fon and Reborn.
"So you've broken out the tequila already?" Reborn tried to joke.
The three men sat down around her as they passed around the large bottle of tequila.
Fon was sitting on the floor close to the window, Reborn was sitting on the very edge of the window sill, and Colonnello had stolen Lal's seat; but quickly pulled her over so that she was sitting between his legs with her back against his chest.
"This brings back memories. Remember how we ditched Junior Prom and got drunk at the football field?" Reborn asked.
The others nodded.
"Yeah, that was a good day." Lal laughed, already feeling a little tiny bit buzzed.
"Almost feels like we're sixteen and drinking illegally again, kora," Colonnello laughed, playing with some of Lal's hair.
"No, if we were sixteen again your hair would be to your shoulders, god you looked like a hippie with long hair! At least Fon can pull it off." Lal teased, punching both of them in the arm playfully. She took a swig of the drink before handing it to Colonnello, who took a large sip and passed it to Fon, who looked at it for a few minutes; contemplating on if he should or not…he did.
"You realize, kora; that you are the same size you were back then and all of us are now much taller than we were then, kora," Colonnello teased her.
"The kora bastard has a point!" Reborn said; taking a chug of the tequila as Fon passed it to him.
"Luce is going to kill us if she finds out what we're doing." Fon laughed, shaking his head as the bottle was passed to him again.
"I say that we never speak of this night. It never leaves this room, if we want to talk about tonight we come in here; got it you little maggots?" Lal asked, the alcohol starting to affect her line of thinking. "Whose with me?"
"EY," The three men screamed loudly, causing all of them to laugh like drunken teenagers.
"What the hell is going on up there?" Skull asked Verde when they suddenly heard a very loud yell coming from Lal's bedroom, and then drunken giggles.
"I don't know, but it sounds like they're partying without us." Verde said, pushing up his glasses in a very geeky way.
"Should we go crash?" Skull asked.
"No…I'm afraid we'll see something that we shouldn't." Verde said.
Skull gasped, "Are you giving up a chance to gather data?" He asked the scientist.
Verde put down his pencil. "Yes my dear idiot, this once I am. For a drunken Fon is a scary thing indeed."
So, that is the taboo. Lal's brother (Who is fictional a part of my imagination) killed their parents.
Fon, Colonnello, and Reborn got a little protective; which I adore since I imagine them being. And Viper and Luce got to kill Calder! (My sister Ninetails picked out the name so if anyone asks for a meaning I have no idea.)
*Le gasp* Verde gave up an opportunity to gather research!
I just noticed something; I posted this story four days ago and I'm already on chapter eight, this is the fastest that I've updated stories! YAY ME!
