firm_detective: (heart misa)
As they approach the door of their room, Misa clings to L. There's something odd in his expression.

[Thread is private to [livejournal.com profile] firm_detective and [livejournal.com profile] misamisal; continues from here. Translation: As loyal as she began, so she remains.]

::seeing the door ahead, Misa hurries and opens the door with her key, holding the door for him::
I'm sorry if it smells like cleaning solution. I started my cleaning in here.

::Their two cups of hot cocoa are still sitting on the table. She notices them and her eyes widen. Blushing slightly, she sort of avoids his gase with a bit of a sheepish smile::
I, uh...I couldn't get rid of them before.

*He follows her into the room, pausing on the threshold to look at it before he enters. I remembered it like this, but it seems -- smaller, darker.*

No, it smells fine.

*When he sees the cups, he concentrates on them, then turns his gaze back to her.*

That's right. We had been drinking cocoa, hadn't we?

You left my book, too -- Gibbon.


*He ambles to the seating area, where he takes a moment to choose between the two chairs and the sofa, finally taking the same seat he had been in when he disappeared. Before he speaks, he lets out a tiny sigh.*

To begin with, Misa, I think I want to get you a different camera. We should remove the pictures from this one and destroy it.

*His tone is businesslike.*

Date: 2009-01-13 04:42 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
:::she's a bit surprised at his tone, but she closes and locks the door, then takes her place next to him, but not too close, since he seems a bit shy at the moment. She flinches at the idea of destroy her camera and all the pictures on it::

Can I keep the pictures I took back home? And the ones that don't have anyone from here in it?

Date: 2009-01-13 04:51 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
You can keep the memory card, and you can put the pictures on my laptop here, if you haven't already. I will open them for you anytime you like.

*His tone softens.*

It is only that each of us have been pulled away from the mansion while we used this camera, or just afterward -- I do not think we can risk it.

*He faces straight ahead, now, instead of turning his face to look at her, and drops his gaze to the floor on the other side of the coffee table.*

Date: 2009-01-13 05:03 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
::she smiles and nods::
Thank you. Of course. I think it's a good idea, too. It does seem too strange to be a coincidence. I don't want something like this to happen again, so I'm willing to take any precaution.

::after a small pause, her expression turns worried::
L...what happened in your world? How is everyone? You don't have to talk about it now if you don't feel comfortable doing so.

Date: 2009-01-13 05:09 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
*He crosses his arms in front of his chest, then raises one of his hands to his face, where he rubs at his forehead.*

It isn't that. It is -- I -- I missed you, Misa, I missed you too much.

I will tell you everything, only -- I do not know where to start. With the story, with you, or with being here again, and there is no way to know how long I will be here this time.

Date: 2009-01-13 05:13 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
::Sadly, she lowers her head, arms wrapping around herself::
I know. I'm so worried...but, most of all, I just want you to be safe and happy.


Would you like something to eat? Some tea, perhaps?

Date: 2009-01-13 05:17 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
Maybe in a few minutes. Please, sit here with me.

*He reaches out the hand that isn't touching his face, caresses her upper arm with the tip of his index finger.*

I am happy to see you.

*This is not accompanied by a smile, or any other outward indication of happiness. There's an awkward pause, and he continues,*

I've been in Switzerland.

Date: 2009-01-13 05:33 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
I'm happy to see you, too.

::a small smile plays on her lips::
Really? How was it?

Date: 2009-01-13 05:39 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
It was dull -- a bank fraud case, and not a particularly interesting one, though it was lucrative.

I have created an identity for you -- it is in a safe there. Family name Watanabe, personal name Nori.


*Now he looks at her, dark eyes wide and flat.*

The entire time I was setting it up, I thought I was fooling myself.

Date: 2009-01-13 05:52 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
::she eyes are large and full of love. She notes the personal name with gratitude::

It must have been difficult. Still, thank you for doing that. I'm very greatful.

::she pauses a moment, looking a bit sad, keeping her gaze away from him, cheeks burning pink with shame but having to ask the question to know for sure::
You still want me, then? While you were gone, I was afraid that when you came back, you might not want me anymore.

Date: 2009-01-13 05:58 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
I -- please look at me, Misa.

*A few breaths, while he considers how to phrase what he means to say. His gaze doesn't leave her face.*

Yes. It would be easier if I knew where to start with you, though. I spent so many months unable to be sure of how I should feel, or what I should do, or when I should give up hoping and try to move on. It wasn't the sort of thing I could control. There was no plan I could make that would have had a reasonable chance of bringing us back together.

::turning to look at him, she listens to his voice still with those large eyes::

I know. It's impossible to make a plan in this sort of situation. It's very ennerving.
But...

::gently, she lays her hand over his::
We're together again now. I would suggest starting the binding rituals so this doesn't happen again, but...I'm not sure anymore if that would ensure that we stay together. Mail is still missing, and Mel told me the link was being stretched. I'm worried.

Date: 2009-01-13 06:09 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
It is a risk to take, except --

* -- he pushes aside the impulse to move his hand from under hers -- he wants it there, but has grown unaccustomed to being touched -- *

-- I think it will be a while before we feel close enough again for it to work.

Date: 2009-01-13 06:16 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
::She thought this was the problem. Gently, she pats his hand but pulls her's back to rest in her lap::

I understand. Let's give it some time. Everything will be alright.

Date: 2009-01-13 06:23 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
I thought I knew, but I was wrong, Misa. There was a consistent stream of thought in my head: wondering how much time was passing here, how you were managing in my absence, whether or not you had been sent home too, and so on and on. I nearly went out of my mind -- even Matsuda noticed. Even so, I was able to accomplish things.

*His tone softens, becomes a touch more tender.*

I would like to go back to how it was before I left.

Date: 2009-01-13 06:27 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
::the thought of Matsuda noticing makes her nearly laugh. Especially because L mentions it::
Did you tell them about this place?

::her tone of voice is full of love and understanding::
We will. I know we will.

Date: 2009-01-13 06:31 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
As little as possible. It is important that they have a certain view of me; this interferes with it.

*He considers something before speaking again.*

I would like the tea you mentioned, Misa, but before it is made, please sit closer to me for a while.

I would like to touch you. I do not know whether or not I want you to touch me.

Date: 2009-01-13 06:40 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
::nodding, she scooches closer until she's right up next to him::

I won't touch you unless you ask me to.

((ooc: Time for bed! lol Good night.))

Date: 2009-01-13 08:31 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
Please touch me when I ask you to.

*With care, he nestles against her, so that their bodies are touching along the side, particularly at the arms and shoulders; then, he inclines his head to hers.*

*He remembers the first day he kissed her. Time has gone in such a way that, although it's been about eight months in the mansion, it's been more than a year for him -- almost exactly a year for her, he realizes. She had expressed her interest, and it had taken him several days to decide what, if anything, he would do about it. He'd felt tentative -- intensely awkward -- approaching her.*

What do you want me to tell you about first?

Date: 2009-01-14 12:05 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
::gently, ever so gently, she presses back against him::
Hmmm...the Kira Case. And how everyone there is doing.

Date: 2009-01-14 01:01 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
*He heaves a deep sigh -- Where to start? -- then begins to speak.*

It is over, I think -- as much as it can be. Higuchi is dead. He has taken most of the blame for it -- not quite all of it, but enough. Your double there has been the least culpable. I thought of how Light would use her, and Rem's concern for her, and I used them myself.

*His voice sounds bleak, dissatisfied, but he feels himself relaxing against her, a sense of peace pushing at the edges of his consciousness.*

Date: 2009-01-15 01:59 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
You got to meet her then? Rem?

How did the Misa in your world take it? She must have been pretty upset, not seeing Light there.


::her tone sounds...apologetic. Even though it wasn't her, she feels bad that the Misa in his world may have treated him badly.::

Date: 2009-01-15 03:31 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
Collusion with Rem is the only reason I am here now: I thought that my best chance for survival would be to make an ally out of her. After Higuchi was captured, I approached her privately with my plan -- if the alternative was that she might kill me, I had nothing to lose.

*His mouth quirks to the side as he decides how to answer the question about the other Misa.*

Misa believes I have abducted and murdered him, despite the fact that he returned there for some time after my own departure.

*With a surreptitious movement, he reaches for her hand.*

Date: 2009-01-15 10:28 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
I'm guessing she cooperated then. Did you show anyone pictures, or talk about this place at all?

That's awful. You wouldn't do that.

Ah, yes, that's right. I remember that.

::She notices the hand reaching for hers and she nudges her's closer::
