Hey so this is just a little code. The italic writing is Celty "talking" and the bold-italic is what Izaya is thinking.

I woke up in the dark in a bed at Shinra's. I had no idea how or when I got there. The last thing I remembered was a surprise attack. Being an info broker is great, except when somebody finds out that you revealed their secrets.

I looked around the room and noticed a chair in the corner. Something (or someone) was in it but i couldn't make out what it was. Then the door opened and Shinra and Celty walked in.

"oh, Izaya. Thank goodness you're up. I thought i had lost you for a minute there", Shinra said with relief thick in his voice.

I didn't answer i just stared at the chair in the corner. In it was the one person who always said he hated me and wanted me dead. Shizuo Heiwajima. I looked at Celty knowing she would answer my unspoken question.

She typed on her phone, 'Surprised aren't you. I was too when he called me at midnight saying he found you almost dead. Especially since he sounded really worried.'

I didn't know what to say. He called for help for me, he was worried, and he stayed there all night? This wasn't like Shizuo at all.

"Well, it's probably best that you get some food in you. You lost a lot of blood last night", Shinra said leaving with Celty.

I just sat there, looking at the still asleep Shizuo.

Why would he care that i was dying? I thought that was his biggest dream. He hates me...right? I had no idea what to think. I was happy he saved me, but I was still confused why he did. Then he stirred and I jumped a little. I thought, for a minute, to pretend I was still asleep, but I went against it.

He woke and looked at me and I thought I saw a hint of relief in his eyes but I wasn't sure. Then he said "good your not dead yet. That means I still get to do it myself."

Of course that's why he saved me. He wanted to do it himself. But that doesn't mean I can't still have some fun with this.

"Oh, Shizu-chan, stop with the act. You know you don't really want to kill me. Your life would e so boring without me in it."

He didn't say anything for a minute. But then when he did speak, it was calmer than it normally was.

"You know what, Flea. I could argue with you, but no matter what I say, you're gonna think what you want. I'm not gonna waste my breath on it."

I thought about that for a second. I realized that I always ended up making myself actually believe what i said to Shizuo. He was right and i knew why I always did that.

"Shizu-chan, I do say what I do for a reason."

"And that reason would be?", he said with a slight bit of curiosity.

I paused for a second before I answered. Then I said, " because I want to believe that you don't really hate me."

What I was saying was true, but I couldn't believe i was actually able to physically say it so easily. I could tell Shizuo was shocked. His eyes were bigger than they should be. But he spoke anyway.

"Is that so", he said looking at me in disbelief. I nodded slightly looking away. Then he did something completely unexpected.

He said, "Well then if that's what you want, I guess I can stop hiding the truth." He walked over to me and leaned closer as my face felt like it was lit on fire. "Izaya... I love you".

Then he kissed me and, after a second of shock, I kissed back. It was a moment of bliss. We pulled away and I said what I always knew was true.

"I love you too, Shizu-chan."
