I'm back with another chapter, guys! I own nothing. Enjoy!

Shizuo stared at the young man he'd accidently knocked out in shock, his grip on the sign loosening to the point that it slid easily out of his hands. The cries of shock and fear from the people were muffled by the sound of his heart pounding in his ears, as were Izaya's words, though he vaguely made out the sentence:

"Look at that; Shizu-chan really is a monster, hurting an innocent like that."

He ran over to the two men and got a good look at the boy.

He had brown hair and his face was slightly pale. He wore a dark blue button-up shirt and matching pants. The man he was handcuffed to had black hair and matching eyes with bags underneath. He wore a wrinkled white shirt and matching dark blue jeans with ragged tennis. He resembled a panda.

Shizuo whipped out his cellphone and dialed a familiar number, cursing for each second that passed as he waited for the person on the other side to pick up.

"Hey, Shizuo-kun!" Shinra's voice came through the speakers, "What's up?"

"Do you have room for a patient?" Shizuo asked, rushing a bit with his words.

"Yeah, but why-?"

"No time; I'll bring him right over." He hung up and turned to his friend. "I have to bring him to a friend of me. He'll heal him." He lifted the boy bridal style. The black haired one stood up.

"I have to accompany you," he said, "I cannot release him from the chain."

Shizuo gave an annoyed groan just as a black bike pulled up, driven by a black clad woman with a yellow and blue helmet. She lifted a PDA, typed a message and showed it to them.

[Shinra sent me to pick up whoever it is you were talking about.]

Shizuo sighed but nodded and turned to the male. "Go with my friend. She'll take you to him." Without acknowledging his protests, he placed the unconscious boy on the bike, which forced the other man to get on. One his helmet-which Celty had handed him-was on securely, she drove away.

Shizuo pulled a cigarette from his pocket and lit it, breathing out the smoke as he struggled to calm down. He really hadn't expected to actually hit someone other than Izaya.

"Well, well, Shizu-chan," Izaya said, watching the area where Celty had disappeared, "You truly are a monster, aren't you?"

"Shut up." Shizuo started walking in the direction of Shinra's place.

"Where are you going?" Izaya asked.

"To Shinra's," Shizuo snapped, "I'd like to know if that boy's gonna make it."

Dawww~! Shizu-chan has a heart~!

Vlad: tsk. Izaya-sama is go-!
