Thoughts


Light got out of the car and began walking up to the front door of his home. He opened the door and made his way inside before closing and locking it.

"I'm home." he called. [1]

"Hello, dear. You're back quite late today." said Sachiko from the kitchen.

"Yeah."

I'm supposed to keep the fact I'm helping the Kira investigation a secret.

"Ah, it's because I was hanging out with my girlfriend."

"You were?" asked Sachiko surprised.

"Ahaha," gleefully shouted Sayu from the living room, "What? Light, you have a girlfriend now? What's her name?

"It's not that surprising. I'm 18 and I'm in university now. Of course I have a girlfriend. You should look for a boyfriend, Sayu." Light said calmly.

"Hm? A boyfriend? What's that supposed to mean?"

"Light, aren't you going to have any dinner?" said Sachiko as she watched Light climb the stairs up to his room.

"Actually I'm still full from the room service at the hotel."

"Ah, I can't believe you just said that to Mom. So what's this about the hotel? Sounds pretty suspicious!" called Sayu as Light fled to his room.

Light sighed and took off his coat. He laid it down on his bed and sat down in his office chair. He turned his attention to the shinigami in the room.

"OK, Ryuk. We need to have a little talk."

"Ah, should have known."

"And I'd appreciate an answer if you could. If two shinigami happen to meet in the human world, are they allowed to speak to each other?" asked Light.

Ryuk had to think a bit before he answered and even then, he hesitated.

"Hard to say. As long as I'm attached to a human, I'd say it's against the rules unless I had their permission first. But there's no law against it, either. So I guess it's possible that another shinigami might talk to me."

"So does that mean that if this fake Kira's shinigami would see you, there's a chance he might mention the fact you're with me and reveal that I'm Kira?"

"They probably wouldn't, but it depends on their personality."

"And if this kind of situation did arise, I can assume that you'll act the way you normally do?"

Ryuk chuckled.

"Yeah. Even if I see another human with a shinigami, I'm not gonna tell you."

"Well I definitely think you've got the right approach."

"Hm? Thanks." said Ryuk a little stunned by the praise.

Light turned towards his desk and started up his computer. He had wanted to research Aoyama a bit before going there. Perhaps the second Kira wasn't so dumb after all and he chose Aoyama for a specific reason. Light scoured the Internet for anything about Aoyama when he came across something that caught his eye. No. The second Kira couldn't be that smart.

"Huh? There's no way. Did he really think this far ahead?" asked Light more to himself than Ryuk.

"What is it?" said the curious shinigami.

"Aoyama is a big area. I was searching for possible meeting places when I stumbled across this. On the 22nd, there's a big event going on at a club in Aoyama called the "Note Blue" Aoyama, blue mountain. Note and blue is a code." said Light astonished at the fact the second Kira could have thought so far ahead.

"Well, well, if you ask me, that's pretty elaborate."

"He might be smarter than I thought. Which means I have to be that much more careful from now on. In any case, this "Note Blue" place is definitely worth checking out."

"What's the point in going there, if you don't want him to find out that you're Kira? You really think it's worth a risk?" asked Ryuk. [2]


"Hello, you've reached the voicemail of Usuki. Please leave a message after the beep."

"Ugh. Goddamit, Usuki!" yelled Kuro in frustration and she threw her mobile phone at the wall.

It gave an audible crunch and fell to the ground. Kuro let out a cry before slumping down into the couch. She rested her head in her hands as she wanted to cry. She had finally met Kira and had told him she would be back tonight. The thing she wished to discuss with him was Usuki. She was positive he was on Kira's side and he would be a big help to the Kira case being a detective and all. Yet, Kuro had called and called and called, but every single time all she got was his voicemail.

"This is not happening. This is not happening." Kuro repeated to herself like a mantra.

"What's not happening?" asked Isamu as he walked into the living room.

Kuro looked up at the shinigami standing in front of her. She took in all of Isamu when her eyes landed on his wings. Her eyes widened and a smile forced its way onto her lips.

"That's it!" she cried and she leaped from the couch.

She ran into her small kitchen and grabbed an index card from the counter. She looked around for a pen and turned her eyes to the cup she kept that was filled with pens. She grabbed one at random and scribbled a poorly written note, but it would have to do. Running back into the living room, she shoved the note into Isamu's hands and started to push him towards the window.

"Take that to Kira." she said.

Isamu nodded and spread his wings, knocking Kuro to the ground. She groaned and watched Isamu take off into the sky.


"Light~. I'm bored~." said Ryuk in a sing-song fashion as he lay upside down on Light's bed.

Light continued to furiously scribble in the Deathnote.

"Deal with it, Ryuk." he managed to say between gritted teeth.

Ryuk sighed and looked out the window. He squinted as he saw a small figure in the distance. He blinked and watched as the figure got closer and closer. Ryuk stood from his position on the bed and walked over to the window. The figure finally was close enough for Ryuk to make out the shape of his friend, Isamu. What's he doing here?

"Light, I'm going to step out for a minute." he said and Light grunted in response.

Ryuk phased through the wall and opened his wings to float in the air. Isamu was barreling towards him and he waited for his friend.

"What are you doing here?" he called out.

Isamu fluttered to a stop in front of Ryuk. He held out the note.

"I have a note for Light. From Kuro." he said.

Ryuk took the note and scoffed.

"Can't you ever come by just to talk?" he asked.

Isamu gave him a small smile before turning around and flying off back to Kuro's apartment. Ryuk scoffed again before phasing back through the wall into Light's room.

"Light, that Kuro girl sent you a message."

Light immediately stopped writing. He turned to Ryuk and raised an eyebrow at the piece of paper in his hands.

"A note?"

"Yes, a note." said Ryuk as he gave it to Light and resumed his position on the bed.

Light carefully unfolded it and read the child-like scribbling.

Kira-

Sorry, I can't make it tonight. I have not been able to contact the thing I was supposed to discuss with you tonight. Hopefully, I will see you tomorrow night, but I can not be sure of it. Forgive me, my Lord.

-The Real Second Kira

Contact? Perhaps this thing is a person. Light set the paper down and sighed. He would need to get out of the house tomorrow and burn it.


"Oh, excuse me, Light? So, what's going on here?" asked Matsuda as he looked at the group of people in front of him. [3]

"Oh, these are some of my friends from school."

"Nice to meet you." said Matsuda as he bowed.

"This is my cousin, Taro. It's his first time ever in Tokyo and he wants to see Aoyama and Roppongi. So I figured the least we could do is show him a good time. I'm counting on you guys! Oh yeah, he also told me he's looking for a girlfriend. So, does anyone wanna volunteer?" explained Light.

"Hey! I never said that!" cried Matsuda as his cheeks burned red.

I'm impressed, Light. I doubt that anyone would ever suspect that there was a police detective hanging around with the students.

The group of friends started walking and soon found themselves in Aoyama. Ryuk flew above the group.

With all of us walking together like this, even if Ryuk is seen, no one would be able to tell which one of us he's following. It's also a good defense against L's surveillance cameras. Not such a bad way to investigate really.
I just have to stay relaxed and keep an eye on the entrance of the Note Blue when it opens.


"Found you! Moon Yagami, is it? You're the only one whose lifespan I can't see. He is Kira! I can't believe it! And never thought it would be this easy to find him. All right Rem. Time to go." said Misa from her seat in the Note Blue.

She had disguised herself and looked nothing like her true self. She simply looked like a school girl going there to enjoy herself. She had been sitting at this table to see if Kira walked past and she smiled as her plan had worked. Kira had walked right past her.

"Ha! You finally found him and now you just want to leave?" questioned the shinigami beside her.

"Well I can't go up to him and say "Hi, Kira! Nice to meet you. I'm the one who sent you the messages" with all these people around. I know his name now, so I can easily find out all about him. After all, it's such a unique name." she assured the shinigami. [4]

[4] This ends the second set of quotes from the transcript and the chappie.


Author's Note: Ugh, I'm so sorry you get to read another chappie with transcript quotes. I honestly didn't want to do it, but it was the only way to move the plot along. At least you got some action from Kuro and a peek at what she's planning.


RQOTD: Do the transcript quotes bother anyone?


I'm really sorry if they do, but I hope you understand why I have to put them in.

*Wishes she could write another chapter, but she has to continue with NaNoWriMo*
