"Shut the hell up for one minute will you!" I yell at Izaya.
Ugh, I hate this. I thought while pinching the bridge of my nose. This guy enrages me to the core, and I want to badly smack that smile off of his face.
What's happening to me? I'm not usually this hesitant on killing him, and now here's my chance. Then why am I hesitating? Something seems to stop me from connecting my fist to his face when I realize what it was. It was as if my conclusion to my madness has been solved.
"It's because I'm curious." I mumbled low enough so he wouldn't hear me.
I hear him sigh.
"And here I thought," Izaya said, startling me. "Something interesting was going to happen."
My body stiffens at the thought. God damn it, did he just read my mind? I'm just curious that's all. I want to test what I think may be true to these past events.
I might be right. I thought while looking down at Izaya. I kneel down to the floor so I can be eye level with him. His cynical eyes stare right back at me. I gritted my teeth to restrain my anger.
"Then," Izaya suggested, "Should I make the first move, Shizu-chan?"
"No," I reply quicker than I thought I would, "I will."
This tension in my body, I feel it all when I force my way on his lips. His body freezes against me as I push him back harder against the wall. What the hell am I doing?
Small sound escapes his lips when my fingers glide across his skin. My body trembles in reaction.
What kind of noise is this guy making? I almost laugh out when I found my answer. I couldn't help it but smile through our kiss as I see his face flush pink as he wraps his arms around me. His hot breath is blowing against my neck. I grunted out.
he really likes me. I thought, while I look down at him.
"More," Izaya whisper against my ear, "I want more."
What? I'm taken back by his words when I look at him in surprise. For a moment his confuse expression reflects mine and it occurred to him on what he just said.
" Izaya snidely said, while he suddenly pushes me backwards. His body weight is on top of me. My surprise look turns to pain when I feel a sharp knife slice across my stomach. I yell out at the excruciating pain.
Izaya laughs mockingly. "Painful isn't it?"
bastard. " I choked out blood, as I try to kick him off of me, but he jump out of the way. A devious smile forms back on his face.
"I won't kill you this time, Shizu-chan." Izaya said while he wipes his knife clean. "But if you touch me again, I'll aim this blade at your heart."
"When I get up off of this floor." I said, almost growling while I struggle to pull myself from the floor. My hands are pressed against my wound. "It will be you who's going down."
If I have the strength I would have thrown him across the city, but I'm losing too much blood to think straight. Izaya laugh at my remark. He slowly walks up to me, and kicked me hard in the stomach, and slamming by body against the brick wall.
"Shit." I hissed under my breath. I feel faint. I'm losing consciousness. "Izzaayyaa
"See you later," Izaya said while walking away."Shizu-chan."
It looks like I was wrong. I thought while my eyes begin to close.
This guy really hates my gut.
? I thought while I rounded the corner away from Shizuo's unconscious body. I covered my mouth with my hands as I look down at my feet. My body is trembling in disturbance. I can feel my face flushing once more.
"Damn it." I said under my breath. "Fool
I really am a fool."
I took out my cell phone and dial the numbers in before pressing the call button. A few ring passes by before he answers, "Hello, did you need us to make another delivery, Izaya?"
"Sort of, "I said sadistically. "I need your messenger to come to this address."
I look up at the street address in front of me, and I couldn't help but feel confused with these feelings of mine. It's starting to get irritating.
"Why is your package in an alley way?"
I almost laugh, "It got
.damage a bit."
"Okay? Then who is this for?"
"It's for you." I said blankly. "Take care of it for me."
"I owe you one, Shinra." I cut him off before hanging up on him. I pathetically sigh out, while looking up at the sky.
"I'll be honest and say it." I said to myself, "I'm feeling very guilty right now."
"What in the world, Celty?" I ask when she enters the apartment complex with a bleeding bartender in her arms.
"I think this is the package you're looking for." Celty type in her phone, while carrying Shizuo across the room, and setting him on the open floor. She disappear to the hallway and came back out with a first aid kit. I was a bit confused at what had happen but I just realize it was all of Izaya's doing.
I sigh out while shaking my head."Typical Izaya."
"Izaya!" Shizuo suddenly yells, and waking himself out from his sleep.
"He's not here." I said, while standing up from my chair. I went to the kitchen to wash my hands as I grab my medical bag, while I help Shizuo sit up against the wall. Shizuo moans out in pain.
"So tell me what happen this time." I said nonchalantly; while I put my gloves on to treat his wound. "Did his beating finally make you come to your senses?"
Shizuo almost glare at me, and I had to hold back my smile.
"No, not yet." The bartender said, while look down at his cut. "I almost got back at him, almost."
"Oh?" I ask in curiosity, while I reach for my tool in my bags."What did you do to get back at him?"
"I kissed him."
I almost dropped my scalpel."W-what?"
Celty's black smoke puffed out in reaction as she type furiously at her text pad. "What made you do such unnecessary thing?!"
"Shizuo said quietly, while looking away."I was just testing a theory of mine."
Is he blushing?! I thought in surprise. I'm a bit intrigue by this sudden notion.
"And what theory is that?!" Celty types into her phone. "Are you testing whether he was going to kill you or actually tries to kiss you back?!"
"Yeah, that's mostly it."
"It's not like I was killed or anything."
"And you call this not near killed, Shizuo?! You shouldn't do something as reckless as this. I know you're strong by strength but you have got to take better care of your body. What is wrong with you?!"
"Whoa, whoa, hold on a minute Celty." I said calmly, while trying to ease her frantic frustration. Her smoke puffs up, and I knew that she was glaring at me. I smile back in amusement. I finish wrapping the gauze around Shizuo's waist, and stood myself up off the floor. Celt helps Shizuo stand up and guide him to the couch.
"She's right you know." I said to Shizuo, while I walk to the kitchen and started to make coffee for the three of us. "You shouldn't be that reckless. Izaya is, after all, a very manipulative informant."
"Manipulative my ass," Shizuo hiss. "The one who was in control at that moment was me."
"Says the one who was on the ground bleeding to death." Celty type sarcastically.
"By the way," Shizuo said, while I handed him coffee. "How did you know where I was?"
I look back at Celty as we stare at each other before turning back to him. "Izaya told me where you were."
Shizuo chokes on his coffee. "What the f-"
"Language." Celt types.
"Well then how did that came about?" Shizuo rephrase his words.
"We don't know." I said, while I sit next to Celty. "I'm guessing he called me right after he got in a fight with you."
"Now why would he call you for?"
I shrug my shoulders."I'm not the one you should be asking."
"You can stay here for the night," Shinra offered. "It's best not to be moving around so much."
"Fine," I mumble, while looking away."Thanks"
Shinra sigh."Take it easy alright?"
I nodded, while Celty lead me towards the guest bedroom. After she left me be, I tiredly sat on the floor at the end of the bed, and lean myself against the mattress. I didn't know how long I've been sitting there because I didn't notice until the room has darken and the city's lights shines through the large windows next to me. I look up and turn to my left to look out at the lights. Again, I feel like drifting away in my thoughts.
My hand traces itself back to my bandage stomach as I sigh out. I lean my head back and look up at the ceiling. I ruffle my hair in a mess at my own frustration. I'm thinking too much into this. Whatever happens today was my mistake. I don't know why I would have thought that that guy, of all people, would have reacted the way I had predicted. I guess it was all my imagination.
Nothings change ever since I met that flea. I guess that's just a blessing for him and hell for me because all these years, he's been screwing around with me. I want payback. I don't know how, because it's practically useless on trying to catch him if I can't even lay a finger on him. Well, until today.
"Today," I repeated my word with a confuse look on my face. "What's the difference between today and any other day? How come I was able to touch him today? "
Was it all on purpose? Like, what if, Izaya wanted me to touch him? I thought. I shake my head in confusion. I covered my face with my hand," Impossible."
Then again, maybe not. I thought.
"I want to test it again." I tell myself. "Just once more, I want to see what he will do."
My thoughts were interrupted when my cell phone rings in my left pocket. I look at the caller ID and a surprise look lit up my face. "Kanra?"
"Hello?" I ask.
"Hiya, remember me from today?" Kanra said from the other line.
His voice sounds oddly familiar. I thought.
It almost sounds like
.no, no way. It can't be. Why hadn't I recognize it before?
"Yeah I remember you." I said as casually as I could.
"I heard that there was a fight in the afternoon today," Kanra said innocently. "And I thought of you. So, was it you who was in that fight, Shizuo?"
Shizuo. Wow, I've never heard him call me by my name before. I thought. I knew who it was now, and yet, I'm still pretending to be clueless for this guy. I want to yell out his name and say useless cuss words at him, but what's stopping me is that I want to find out what he's up to. Izaya, what are you planning?
"Yeah, it was me." I reply.
Izaya laughs almost too girlishly. "Ah, I see. You're not hurt are you?"
"What?" I ask in surprise. Oh shit, I quickly rephrase my words. "I mean, yeah, I got a small cut. That's all. Why are you asking? Are you worried?"
I struggle to laugh causally. For a moment there was silence on the other end of the line.
"Truthfully," Izaya softly said. "I am worried."
I choked back my voice, and for a second I couldn't breathe. What the hell is this guy saying? I never expected that to come out of his mouth.
"W-well thanks, "My words fluster for a second, "for worrying."
cute. I thought while testing that word. It seems to describe him the more I think about it. I sigh out in amusement. I'm quit entertain with this.
"Sorry, I've got to go." Izaya said quickly. "See you later, Shizu-c, I mean, Shizuo."
Don't go, not yet.
"You know, "I said slowly, trying to stall the conversation. It feels a bit childish to do these kinds of things, but I couldn't help it. "We seem a lot closer even though this is the second time I've talk to you."
I chuckle, "Okay, I'll Iet you go now."
"Oh wait one more thing." I said, and I could feel myself smiling.
"What is it?" Izaya said cautiously.
What's happening here? This feeling, it's quite comfortable.
"Sweet dreams, Kanra."
With that, he hung up on me.
"Sweet dreams, Kanra." Shizuo whispers.
I fluster, "Y-you too."
Bitter sweet, I can almost taste it in my mouth. While hanging up the phone, I lean myself against the window with my forehead press against the glass. My hand instinctively reaches out to touch my lips, and then my cheeks. It feels as if I was burning up.
I stare back at my reflection. Yeah, I was definitely burning up.
I was burning up with embarrassment.
