Dear Reisuke-kun ,I wish to pet you. You have a nice family. You make me impressed with your intelligence. You should be my apprentice. Someday I will open my own detective office. You + me = unstoppable. If I saw you now I’d smile. I would build a paper plane just for you. We could observe those dangerous stalkers together under the stars. Love, Akise Aru, Boy Detective (P.S. Stay adorable third world please.)
The little boy only stared at the piece of paper for a moment; wondering why he would get such a nice letter. Though he wasn’t sure why Akise-niichan would send him a letter instead of just saying it, the words were enough to put a smile on his face. With the paper in hand, he started to run.
“Mama! Papa! Look what Nii-chan gave me!”

Kietsu glanced between the stuffed bear and his bond, unsure of what to do. Aito did need fixing, and it was instructed by Rei-kun.. perhaps the younger boy really was okay? He was pretty beaten up, wasn’t he? Jumping from windows and slipping on puddles, battling demons and forming a bond.. certainly he must be tired from all that, who wouldn’t be? It must have been a long day for the other.
Despite his hesitation, the demon nodded, gripping the bear tightly and moving over to sit by the cushion that was slightly torn to expose the white cotton on the inside. Once he was situated and comfortable, he slowly started to refill his bear, waiting to see if Aito would start moving before the string tied him up together.
”..Thank you for giving me this again!.. Aito might even start moving again with just this cotton.. wouldn’t you like to be friends with Aito too?”
The little boy watched as the other held his bear and made his way back over to the open cushion, smiling as he began to mend the bear once again. He didn’t feel like he needed anything else at that moment. He was tired but that was a normal feeling. Nothing that couldn’t be fixed with a little nap. That would have to happen later.
He didn’t speak a word at first; he couldn’t think of anything to say. Though, once the other started to speak again, Reisuke listened to the other words. Another smile came across his face once the other was finished.
“Ooooh! Really?” Reisuke questioned, an look of eager anticipation in his eyes. “I hope so! I wanna see..and I wanna be friends with Aito-chan too! We can all be friends!”
“I-I’m sorry for that sudden o-outburst.”
She then blushed at the boy’s reply.
“F-Funny? I-Is that in a p-positive way..?”
“Of course!” the little boy giggled. “It was just a mistake! It’s all right!”
“P-play…? U-uh… S-sure!” Yukki agreed against his own will, knowing that what Rei thought as ‘playing’ wasn’t exactly what most children did. He bit his lip nervously, hoping that the other would have something to do and would leave any time now, but of course that wouldn’t happen. He automatically looked for his Future Diary, but he soon put it back in his pocket, remembering that it was really dangerous to let the other see it. He really hoped that Rei-kun hadn’t noticed anything.
“W-what do you want to p-pl… p-play?” He couldn’t even keep his own voice steady, what exactly was wrong with him? Rei obviously knew that he was scared and was probably already planning something, while he didn’t have a plan or anywhere to run. In other words, if the copper-haired boy decided to kill him, he was already dead. Maybe if he got the other distracted, he could run away or something, but it was almost impossible as the other was far too smart to let him go so quickly.
Within moments of the boy’s initial words, a cellphone was pulled from his pocket. While the boy was looking at its screen with frantic eyes, Reisuke found it funny. To most people, the cell phone would have been nothing but a regular communication device. Though, Reisuke knew better than that. If all went well, soon, he would be the one raising the boy’s DEAD END flag…and he would make sure it stayed up.
An expression of curiosity crossed his face, still remaining even as the boy put his cell phone. He knew of the boy’s jumpy nature and he would have fun with it. After all, wasn’t what games were about?
“What was that, Onii-chan?” he asked. “I wanna see it! Pretty pleeeeease?”
He sat alone in his room, felling a bit sleepy. And as usually, hungry. It wasn’t all that easy to get any sleep on the stone floor of his room, but he didn’t really have any other options. Once he felt himself getting close to dozing off, he heard a small voice. With a groan, his ears twitched a bit as he walked to the small window of his door, peeking through it with his glowing red eyes, covered in loose stiches.
“Who are you…?”
There was definitely a presence being the door. If the slight noises didn’t make it obvious, then the piercing red orbs that met his own was certainly a dead giveaway.
At first, the small child was shocked by the unnatural gaze that met his own. Was there some sort of monster beyond the doorway? Should he run? His Diary hadn’t given him a DEAD END warning yet, but his mind was telling him he might die.
Then the voice came. He would have expected something much more grotesque; something befitting for a monster. Though, what he heard was a child’s voice. Huh?
“…Um…Who are you?”
Kietsu’s smile brightened even more by the other’s reassurance. Was his bond truly okay though? People did have the option to lie.. but it wasn’t right to accuse his bond of lying! Friends don’t do that, do they? Friends don’t lie or cheat or do anything like that! A friend was a friend.. you depended on them, and them on you, right? The two of them really had that covered then! They both needed the other was life, so they must be friends. Always arguing with someone that always had to be around would be a terrible life.
Deciding to return to his spot, the demon quietly and slowly made his way closer to the younger boy, sitting down on the floor next to him. What else was there to do?.. Aito needed fixing, but if Rei-kun wanted or needed something.. that would be more important.
Despite being unsure of the other’s wishes, he once again picked up the soaked bear and examined it, picking at the stuffing and placing more of it inside as he spoke, “Rei-Kun?.. Now that the bleeding stopped and the house is cleaner, is there anything else I can do for you?”
The little boy was in fact, an excellent liar. It was something he did nearly every day; for he knew the truth would most likely cause his demise. Though, he didn’t see or feel any need to be lying right now. The blood had indeed stopped flowing and aside from the slight soreness, there wasn’t anything that pained him.
Was there anything he needed? Reisuke couldn’t exactly come up with anything. At least not anything that was possible to get. He glanced left and right before his eyes fell upon the bear once again. He then took it, handing it to the other.
“You should fix Aito-chan now!” he told the other.
“No, not at all. In fact, from today forth I declare you as my younger brother! If you ever need anything or anyone tries to mess with you, you come and tell me and I’ll do something about it. Come on now, Reirei. Time to go get you your ice cream.”
It wasn’t an uncommon thing to see young children out and about regions, no matter where you went. Perhaps, he was a new local daycare child? Either way, she would do the best she could to protect this child as if it had been her born responsibility to do so. Crouching down now, the trainer had gestured toward the diary owner to climb aboard, remembering her own entertainment during childhood.
“You’re probably tired from all the walking, huh? Climb on my back, I’ll carry you there.”
Was this lady really calling him her “younger brother”? How come? He hadn’t done anything for her and he didn’t exactly think he was anything special. Sometimes he would call himself an “elite”, but that was just something to make him feel better. So…why?
The confusion only grew as the woman crouched down to his level, offering to carry him to the local ice cream store. This was…new. He actually had received a piggyback ride from his Papa before, which had been plenty strange in itself. Still, he couldn’t understand the special treatment he was receiving Did he look tired? Reisuke didn’t feel too worn down. He was rather fatigued mentally, though there was no possible way to tell that. Huh…
Finally, he decided just to accept it with a smile. Carefully, he climbed onto the woman’s back.
“Thank you, Mei-chan!”
