Bast Ch1He Who Strikes First WinsBast Ch11 day ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Chisuzu was already in the Kanto region when it started happening. She was sitting just outside a café, sipping her now lukewarm coffee as she leveled up against someone five levels above her in a MMORPG called ‘The First Strike’. Level didn’t matter to her as much as their gear did and even then, she still had strategy over them.
The broadcast happened as she was collecting her experience points. There was power in news announcements and it showed as the usual buzz around her hushed almost instantly. Many quit moving entirely as they stared at the large screen.
‘Lind L. Taylor. L?’ Her confusion followed over the words as she listened to his words. It was undeniably something L would say…and yet, she somehow doubted he would show his face so easily.
She had them on a pedestal, having been following their work since before the BB murder case, keeping up only through the hacking skills she had picked up in her youth.
The Deciphering Game: # 2They drove up to a Burger King and ate, using some extra cash they didn’t use on the way to Hinderwood. People smiled and said ‘Hi’. They welcomed them and waved hello when they walked by. Jada smiled back and noticed the generosity, but Tyler just grunted and pretended like it was the first good thing he had heard all day. Tyler got up from his seat.The Deciphering Game: # 212 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“What are you doing?” Jada asked.
“I’m gonna go wait outside, the smell of this place is killing me…” Tyler shoved open the door and walked out to his bike.
Jada gathered all of the garbage and threw it away. After saying “Thank You” to the clerk she pushed open the door herself and started after Tyler. She could see 3 boys and 1 girl all up in a small group talking to Tyler. Tyler’s arms were crossed and neither of the faces looked happy. All she could here was bickering and rude comments as she got closer to Tyler’s bike. She picked her pace up in a jog and me

At that moment, I couldn't possibly be happier. I was reunited with the one person I ever truly cared about, and she still loved me as she did before. I stared lovingly into her eyes, my smile growing brighter by the second. My tears had dried, pure happiness taking its place. I felt like nothing could possibly go wrong anymore... then I heard a voice.
It didn't take long for me to recognize his voice, and I could see the familiar red bandana in the corner of my eye. He was sitting there on a desk next to the window, like one would lounge on a sofa. His very posture offended me for how disrespectful it was. Instantly, I put myself between Parts and Em, hands on my daggers. "What're YOU doing here?"
"I wanted to see whether you would come here" was the response. "Seems your memory's more persistent than I gave it credit for."
I wanted to strangle him on the spot, make him suffer for trying to keep me away from Em. This man was partly respons

For the first time, Rabbit felt intensely guilty. How could she have done such a thing? She couldn’t remember Alice well, but she still knew enough. Alice’s blur was that of the most delicate, innocent, loving person she’d known; she wouldn’t dream of hurting another person, and had often said so. Why then, did she lose her life? Rabbit tried to think of a reason. Surely she’d had a reason. Unfortunately, she found no one to blame but herself. What kind of monster had she been? It felt horrible, but she knew she still had a task at hand, so she picked herself up and went back out through the basement. It was dark as she headed down the road; she hoped she could find her way.
Luckily, the address she’d been given was rather close by. Apparently, this ‘first meeting place’ was a rundown old restaurant, filled with smoke and suspicious and disgusting characters. Rabbit dearly hoped she wouldn’t have to enter. Fortunately, Hat
Colorful Clyde, Pt. 2 of 6. The storm above worsened and intensified, growing larger in size. From their living room window, Wendy and Jeremy Sharlock watched it close in over them. It closed in over them as a low shelf cloud with ferocious winds. The rain came down in heavy sheets for almost an hour, and even the tall protective pine trees indigenous to the area all around their brick home groaned and swayed throughout its entire duration. When one of them nearby cracked loudly outside and crashed onto the saturated ground, she let out a spontaneous scream in his arms. He also breathed an audible sigh of relief and walked away from the window with her then. They were nearly a hundred miles away from where Cecilia disappeared; he could not remember a storm of greater magnitude in recent years.Colorful Clyde, Pt. 2 of 6.22 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

The Deciphering Game: # 1Hinderwood, California… a small town with a big name. Jada almost felt herself jumping up and down in her seat. She was supposed to be a teenager, but right now she felt like a little girl again. Jada was 15 at the time and Tyler was 16, though at most times it seemed the other way around. Driving past the welcome sign, Jada’s spirits lifted even more. It said, “Welcome to Hinderwood California, home of the top Derby Racers”. Their mom said it would be good for them, living in an area that only praised Derby Racing. Their dad said it was only because of his work and that it was stupid. He had a high position in Government Financials, though we were all mystified about why we were moving to Hinderwood for financials. Tyler was in between and doubted their parents decision. And Jada thought of the California Tigers Derpy Racing Team with her name on their jersey every single time Hinderwood came to mind. It was her dream team and now that she lived in a drafting aThe Deciphering Game: # 115 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

I padded into the room, where the others were waiting, and locked eyes with L. Getting my message, he nodded.
L got Light mostly up to date aside from suspecting a second Kira and introduced him to everyone he didn’t already know. When he got to me, Light paused, and glanced almost imperceptibly in the direction of his hovering shadow, before smiling to me. I hated that smile, it didn’t reach his eyes.
What kind of idiot did he take me for?
“Is something wrong, Asahi?” He shook his head, already used to his false surname.
“No, I just didn’t think there were people my age still wearing yukata casually around this part of Japan.” Light laughed awkwardly, scratching his head the way I had seen Matsuda do a few times.
“I also wasn’t expecting there to be two Ls. You’re very different from one another.” He pretended his lie was an admittance he was almost embarrassed about.
“Do call me Suzu, makes it easier to
Bast Ch2Kitty Hair ClipBast Ch21 day ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Chisuzu’s clowder had woken her the morning of her scheduled meet with L, and she chose to wear a black kitty hair clip and a curly brunette wig with her brown contacts. Her attire would have to blend in with the college students around her, so she found something she could wear with thigh high socks and headed out.
When she arrived, a crowd had begun to collect around the tennis court. From the conversations she had picked up on, L had challenged Light to a match with a goal of 6 points. With all the commotion, she preferred not to interfere.
While it could easily be translated as nothing more than a normal match, it felt like it was going to be much more. Her curls swung to the side with her movements as she witnessed L’s first serve and couldn’t resist a little grin when he used a phrase she herself used often.
“He who strikes first wins.”
Chisuzu also didn’t make herself known because she wanted L to win this battle against Light

When she woke up, the first thing she noticed was that she was lying in the dirt. She had her eyes closed, awakening one sense at a time. She knew she could feel; that was certain. She knew this because of the intense pain in her right hand. Next was her sense of smell. Trees, grass …blood? Now she could hear. Slowly, sound came to her ears. They were such small sounds; the trees rustling in the wind, the occasional bird, and the sound of her own breathing was all she could detect. Slowly, she opened her eyes, and was practically blinded by the bright sun beating down on her. She took in her surroundings. Above her, there was a gaping hole, and she realized that she was underground. She must have fallen through the hole. There was no climbing out. She rolled over, and was met with a grisly sight. She was face to face with a skeleton. It was wearing a rather lovely blue dress, and it had blonde hair. She tried to remember what had happened and how she got here, but there

Rabbit was much more rested when she rose the next morning, and found herself in a slightly better mood. Hatter was still snoring away across the room, and she decided to let him sleep; after all, it was still quite early. She grabbed a change of clothes and took a quick shower, ignoring the pain the hot water caused her hand.
When she had finished, she emerged to see Hatter going through his bag. He looked up at her, and Rabbit was admittedly amused. He had obviously just woken up, and he was doing his best to keep his eyes open in the morning light; his hair was sticking up all over the place, but he only seemed to halfway care. He smiled groggily, as only he could.
“The same to you.”
He looked back down at his suit case. “You wouldn’t happen to have a comb, would you? I seem to have neglected packing one during our rushed exodus.”
“A… comb?” it was at this moment that Rabbit realized that all sh

I had planned everything ahead of time aside from how long the ride from my place to L’s building would be; a mistake on my part.
Thankfully, the car stopped around the same time I was beginning to feel claustrophobic. All the same, I paused nearby to take in all the fresh air I could when I exited the vehicle.
“You get carsick?” I could feel his wide sleepless eyes on me, and imagined his thumb being at his lip, a habit he seemed to have while pondering something or another.
“Only after long rides if I don’t fall asleep first, but we needed the talk we had. Go on ahead, I will wait for you inside.” It was only natural that they go through a different entryway for L’s protection.
“Are you sure?” He was indicating that I wasn’t in disguise.
“There will be a convention two days from now and it is nearby, so people here will assume I am here for it. I assure you, I will be fine.”
