He smiles sickly as he pulls something from his pocket. A dagger. "You die tonight." He lunges at him, laughing evilly as he presses the tip of the blade to L's chest.
But the Detective does not scream. He does not run. He does not move at all. He only smiles as he gazes down at the knife about to pierce his flesh. "Kill me, if you must." he whispers

His brown eyes reveal the tortured expression of one who has witnessed countless unspeakable tragedies. Yet he possesses a kindness about him, something trustworthy and innoccent. The criminal's eyes dart back and forth one last time, tears streaming down her cheeks as she surrenders, dropping the dagger she had once held only inches from the young man's heart and sinking to her knees before him. He smiles slightly before pulling something out of his pocket and offering it to the troubled girl. A lollipop.
