LMN Chapter 24
L was still cleaning up Nil's forehead from their unfortunate accident when she fell alseep on the sofa. She seemed more and more tired as of late. Not only because of the investigation, but also because of her recent illness. The comfortable sofa plus L's treatment was enough to make her fall asleep.
The young black haired man had replaced the napkin with a cool cloth that Watari had brought to them. He stared at her faced as it began smoothing out from the glare he was receiving, not a minute ago, to a calm placid expression. Her eyes drifted closed a moment later as he rubbed away the drying blood on her forehead. He opened up a bandaid and smoothed it over the small cut and then surprised the entire room by planting a small kiss to the spot. "That should do the trick." L said to himself as he looked back to Light.
Misa and Light were both looking at him curiously. "What was that?" Light asked.
"Ooooo Ryuzaki..." Misa blushed and cuddled up to Light. "...I can't believe someone like
LMN Chapter 23
Yes, she definitely regretted it.
She was one chain too close to a certain blonde haired gothic girl with a too perky attitude. Misa Amane was handcuffed to Nil with a ten foot chain. And L had done the same with himself and Light. This was his grand plan to keep an eye on the two suspects.
"Um, L. Before this becomes official, I need to speak with you... ALONE." Nil urged. L nodded and had Watari cuff both suspects to a counter as the two walked to another room.
"What is it?" L asked as Nil rummaged through the cupboards for a glass to fill with tea.
"I thought you would like to know that I can no longer read your name above your head, actually anybodies names." She let that sink in as she filled her glass. "I can't see the shinigami either."
"Interesting." L didn't seem too worried about this. "It seems to coincide with your illness."
"Yes, I realized that as well." She agreed. "Do you think it's the same thing that happened to them." She nodded towards the room occupied by Light and
LMN Chapter 22
The dream invaded her mind once again.
Nil stood next to her sisters watching their house burn to the ground with their parents inside. "LET ME GO!" She yelled as the police officer tugged on her arm. "MOMMY!" It seemed odd to yell such a thing when she was twenty years old. But in her dream she was still that same pink hating ten year old girl watching helplessly as her life was torn to pieces in front of her.
Then the dream changed.
Somehow, she had tugged free of the police officer and began running towards the house. She didn't stop even when she reached the open door. She charged right inside and through every room in the house, searching for her parents.
They were nowhere to be found on the bottom floor, so she ran up the stairs. She reached her bedroom and looked inside. There was her mother and father huddled in a corner, cowering from the flames. "Mommy!" She was about to run to them when she heard a voice coming from the room behind her, right across the hall.
"Nil!" The voic
LMN Chapter 21
The case was coming together perfectly. Misa Amane had been detained, close to admitting she was, indeed, the second Kira. A little later, Light admitted he could be Kira and asked L to detain him as well. This, however, forced Soichiro Yagami to have L lock him up because he had no clue how he would react to watching his son being held prisoner and maybe be convicted of actually being the cold blooded killer he was working so hard to catch.
"Nil?" Nil's head shot towards Chiyo. "May I speak with you?" The young woman nodded once and reluctantly left L to watch the detainees. They walked to the kitchen where a cup of tea was waiting for her.
"What is it?" Nil asked as she brought the cup up to her lips. She blew over the top of the hot liquid to cool it.
"I was just wondering if there is any reason for us to stay here." Chiyo looked at her wearily. "I realize that you want to stay and make sure they are convicted, but I think it's time for Meek and Lia to get back to their own lives."
LMN Chapter 20
"Hey Nil?" Mellie ran into the bedroom with a tape in her hand.
Nil looked up from the survaillence videos she had been watching. While she was sleeping she had missed quite a bit of the goings on. She paused the video when she saw the tape. "Shouldn't you be doing homework?"
"Yeah." She handed Nil the tape without explaining the homework situation. "Could you go over this for me? I finished it yesterday while you were still sleeping."
"Only if you promise to do your homework."
"Fine, fine." She promised. "Could you help me with that also." Meek put on the worst puppy dog pout Nil had ever seen.
"What do you need help with?" Nil stood up to retrieve her headphones.
"Why don't you ask Liora. She is better with Math then I am." She sat back down in front of the TV. "Do you have the music sheets?" Mellie handed her a bunch of papers with song notes written on them.
"Uh...Liora is not in such a great mood."
"Why?" Nil started the video back up and fast forwarded through it.
LMN Chapter 19
"STOP!" Nil shook her head from side to side frantically.
"NIL!" Someone grabbed her shoulders. She opened her eyes to see Watari looking at her in concentration. She tried to move but she couldn't muster up enough strength. "Are you okay?"
"No." She said bluntly. "I can't move."
"You have been very ill. You still need some rest to recover." He explained. "But I was told to inform your sisters the minute you woke up."
"How long have I been sleeping?" She asked weakly. She noticed something very odd about Watari.
"For five days...is something wrong?" He asked. She was waving her hand above the man's head.
"I think I am just seeing things." She muttered.
"Uh, right." He moved back from her. "I will return with Miss Lia and Meek." He left the room and she tried to sit up. She finally sat up enough to lay back against the headboard.
"NIL!" Mellie rushed through the door and landed on the bed with a big jump and wrapped her arms around her. Lia followed the girl with almost as much enthisia
LMN Chapter 18"Ryuk, you seem a little quiet lately." Light said as he layed on his bed.
A very scarey looking creature with black wings and bright yellow eyes answered him. "Yes, well." He didn't really feel like telling Light his problem, but it didn't seem like it would hurt anything. "There is just something familiar about someone I saw at task force headquarters."
"Oh really? Who is that?"
"I'm not going to tell you. I'm not sure if I'm allowed." Ryuk explained, but he didn't seem too worried about hurting Light's feelings.
"Fine, doesn't really matter to me I guess." Then his eyes widened. "Wait! Does that mean the second Kira is working with them also?"
"Oh, no. It's nothing like that." Ryuk chuckled.
"Oh, I thought you might have seen another shinigami."
"Nope, it was a human."
"Have you dropped your notebook in the human world before?" He considered.
"Look, Light, I'm not telling you anything more, so quit asking." Ryuk said with a hint of amusement.
LMN Chapter 17
Nil couldn't help but be angry with L once again.
"Yes, Nil and myself had already come to the conclusion that there were two separate Kira's." He was speaking to Light Yagami, who had come to the same conclusion as well. "In fact, it was even before we received these tapes."
Light Yagami was the exact reason Nil was angry. Yes, they suspected him of being the first Kira. And now he had seen everyone's face that she kept near and dear to herself. Mellie, Liora, and Chiyo. Why did L have to bring him here? The only thing she could do now is protect their names. Not even L knew that yet.
"You know Nil." Light turned to her from a message he was writing to trick the second Kira into revealing himself. "I always pictured you as being a guy."
"Yes, most people have come to that assumption. Even L thought so." She said it unemotionally as she kept her distance from L and Light.
"It's odd now, knowing you are a girl." He never looked up from his paper. "Would it be too much if I asked why you
LMN Chapter 16
Nil stayed up the rest of the night and most of the day thinking about her nightmare. 'Why would I still be having these dreams after ten years?' She rubbed her eyes with her forefinger and thumb and pinched the bridge of her nose. 'You think I would have been over the incident by now.' She layed in her bed just staring off into space. Nobody bothered her and she never made any attempts to move from her spot. Until finally her stomach began to growl. She closed her eyes and frowned.
A few seconds passed and it growled again, this time she stood from her bed and walked out into the hallway. She stopped at L's door and tried to compose herself. Without knocking she walked in. As expected everyone looked up to see her and then quickly averted their eyes. Everyone except L and Mellie.
Mellie was, of course, worried still. But it was hard to tell what L was thinking, or feeling. Nil just ignored both pairs of eyes and walked to the kitchen to get herself some tea and a bagel. She stood at t
LatreuophobiaI wash off sick-sweet orange lipstick in front of a mirror as dusty as gothic romances. It tastes like oblivion, that is to say, like nothing my tongue can detect.
The door opens with a creak no private restroom could emulate. Some chick with blue bobbed hair and smeared eyeliner. I looked like that once. Ten years ago.
Getting the beer out of my hair is harder. Some men just can't take it when I'd rather they not kiss my feet or call me an angel or-
“Dayum girl, you look like a goddess.”
I gulp, taste of acid.
