Saguru

Good morning … Shiho

Shiho

Good morning …

Saguru

… so ?

Shiho

You're surely fast

Saguru

As fast as I could … once I got your text message I got into the car

Shiho

Good …

Saguru

So … you miss being there?

Shiho

Yes I do … that's why I called you …

Saguru

Then you can pack your luggage and we'll take the next plane to Tokyo

Shiho

… I already did in fact but …

Saguru

About your mother?

Shiho

Yes … it's hard to tell her …

Saguru

Don't worry I've already thought about something … it will work out don't worry

Two days after

At Mouri's.

Eri was in the office doing some paper work and Ran was with her reading … Door knocked. Ran opened it to find Masumi in front of her.

Masumi

Good morning

Ran

Masumi-san … it's been a while…

Masumi

I'm sorry for that … Good morning Kisaki-sensei

Eri

Sera-san … good morning

Ran

So … where have you been?

Masumi

I have been sitting at my auntie's , Shuu - nii has traveled and let me there … he's coming back today and auntie's went to her friends … they invited me but I didn't want to interfere

Eri

We would be truly glad if you came to spend few days with us … Ran would like it too right?

Ran

Of course, we could have had lots of fun…

Masumi

Thank you … but auntie was alone in her flat, Shuu-nii said that I had to spend some time with her

Ran

Shiho-san isn't yet back from London?

Masumi

No … she said she'll be back soon

Eri

I'll make you some juice girls … Ran be careful

Ran

Ok mom …

As Eri leaves.

Masumi

So … Ran-san, how are you?

Ran

I'm better …

Masumi

Anything wrong ?

Ran

Many things has happened Masumi-san … many awful things

Masumi

Yel me …

Ran

Shinichi … he was cheating on me …

Masumi

What are telling ?

Ran

There was a girl … this girl was with us on the cruiser … she was the one behind everything … she wanted to kill me … she sent me letters threatening me

Masumi

Do you know who is she ?

Ran

No … I don't but my father said I should have no fears … she wouldn't hurt me he said … but even though … she kept sending letters

Masumi

How did your father know ? how can he be so sure ?

Ran

He said that she is dead … those letters are just some stupid prank …

Masumi

But … you think kudo-kun knew about her ?

Ran

I don't know … probably he knew

Masumi

Probably not … can we conclude?

Ran

He was with her the whole time … when I was left alone … he was surely with her

Masumi

Ran-san … are you aware of what you have said ? … Kudo-kun was conan then …

Ran

Maybe it's a big lie … may be he did really have a cousin named Conan … maybe he was in America and I was here alone … waiting for him

Masumi

That's nonsense … Edogawa Conan never existed … and Kudo-kun was always with you … stop thinking this way …

Ran

I'm lost Masumi … when the cruiser was sinking … Shinichi refused to get on the boat with us … why ? give me just one reason … just one logical reason

Masumi

There are many reasons … maybe he went to get something he lost … maybe he went to help some needy person … maybe he went to something we don't know … but you can't conclude anything …

Ran

He went to see her … to save her … maybe

Masumi

I don't think so … do you know her name … anything about her ?

Ran

Nope …

Voice

Her family name was Miyakai …

Ran

Mom …

Masumi

Miyakai ? … are you sure?

Eri

Yes … her family name was Miyakai …

Masumi

It's her …

Ran

You know her ?

Masumi

It's my cousin … probably

Somewhere in Niigata, In Hakuba's Family villa. Elena and Hakuba's mother, Sarah were preparing dinner in the kitchen .

Sarah

I am truly pleased because you're here Elena-san.

Elena

Same for me … but we could postponing it until the kids are back from London

Sarah

We wouldn't have the same fun with them around.

Elena

I truly miss my daughter … maybe I should call her afterward

Sarah

You should … but first let me show you something

Elena

What's it ?

Sarah

It's a beautiful thing … we'll see it soon … it's not the right time yet

Elena

It's about six PM now … Hakuba-san said he'll be back at 5, isn't he late?

Sarah

He's waiting for a friend of him in the airport … maybe he didn't get here yet

Elena

That's probable …

Sarah

Maybe we should go and have a walk around

Elena

Let's go..

A quarter an hour later, they got near a lake.

Sarah

Few minutes remains … something beautiful will show up …

Elena

Is it Sunset ?

Sarah

They told me you were a sherlockian … no wonder you could guess it right

Elena

It's a plain thing …

Sarah

Her phone rang … it's my husband … he's in the house … I need to go … stay here and enjoy

Elena

Ok …thank you

Sarah

Not at all … leaving

Elena was sitting on the wet grass, admring the scene, the sun was on fire … it was beautiful

Elena

It's beautiful … really beautiful

Voice

Is it right ?

Elena

Seeing a familiar shadow …Is that you dear ?

Shiho

Yes it's me… come to sit near her

Elena

When did you come back ?

Shiho

Just now … I've just arrived with Saguru

Elena

You didn't tell me … why ?

Shiho

Just a little surprise for you …

Elena

I missed you so much dear … truly

Shiho

I missed you too …

Elena

It was all planned … am I wrong ?

Shiho

Saguru did it … I had no idea about what he was doing

Elena

he's a good planner

Shiho

So tell me … is it really beautiful … this view ?

Elena

Shiho

Mom … sometimes it's good to get out of a situation with the less lost

Elena

What do you mean ?

Shiho

I had a problem … I was on the line of death …

Elena

… ?

Shiho

I am alive now … but I had to pay a precious thing to survive

Elena

Dear … I

Shiho

I'm truly happy … because yet I'm still alive

Elena

Dear … I'm truly … I don't know what to say … you've already told me about that surgery … and I had a bad feeling since then … I am feeling bad … because I'm not probably a good mother … you went through so many troubles … I wasn't there with you … I didn't know about them … as if going through a brain surgery isn't enough … tell me … just tell me what could make you step on the line of death

Shiho

I was talking about the surgery in fact … my doctor said it was truly dangerous but I went through it … I'm fine now … but I had to … Mom … because of some mistake during the surgery … I … I no longer see anything … anything … living in a dark world …

Elena

Shiho

Mom … are you alright?

Elena

Just … just feeling how it is to be the worst mother n earth … probably I am

Shiho

Mom … it's a price I've got to pay if you really want me to be here with you right now …

Elena

Of course I want you to be with me … but …

Shiho

It's okay … I can live with it … somehow … I'll be able to …

Elena

I'll be with you …

Shiho

So tell me … how does it look like?


I'm truly sorry for the delay … hardly could I write this chapter because I'm truly not in the mood of writing a word … so I'm sorry if it's not that good … thank you Shinichi143 and roxifoxi ...I gathered my courage for you too especially and for all my readers … I tried … it seems it's another thing I failed at … maybe I succeeded it … you've got to decide
