2 Months Later
Carissa had started to go to school and was fitting in quite well. Shizuo loves the little girl with all his heart, however, it makes him worry for her more. So far no one other than Celty and Shinra know that Carissa’s the adopted daughter of Shizuo, the monster of Ikebukuro. But their are rumors about him adopting a child. He’s doing the usual and working with Tom currently.
“Is something wrong?” Tom asks. Shizuo shakes his head from thought and looks at Tom.
“Sorry what?” Tom looks at Shizuo in worry.
“There’s something wrong...you’re not as violent and you keep on spacing out. Where’s the real Shizuo?” Tom asks. Shizuo shake my head with a smirk.
“I’m fine, I just have a lot on my mind is all. Nothing to worry about.” Tom nods and they continue their work. After half an hour of work Shizuo see’s Izaya Orihara talking to some teenager. Shizuo gets pissed and grabs the nearest heavy object, which is a trash can, and throws it at Izaya just missing him. “Izzzayyyyyya!” Izaya hearing the familiar chant, smirks and faces the protozoan.
“Shizu-chan, why can’t you just say hi like a normal person.” Shizuo gets even more pissed off at Izaya.
“I told you not to come into Ikebukuro again...and don’t call me Shizu-chan!” Shizuo says running at the flea with a street sign. They start their fighting like usual and continue moving through Ikebukuro. They end up in front of a school and keep at it until a little girl by the name of Carissa comes out of the school and looks at Shizuo surprised.
“Shizu-kun?” Carissa asks questionably. Shizuo stops in his track at hearing the voice of the little girl. Shit! Why is she here?! I need to get her out of here! Izaya looks at the little girl and then at Shizuo with a confused look. Shizu-chan literally froze up at her voice. Who is this girl I wonder? This should be fun. Izaya smirks and faces the little girl again.
“Hey there little one, what’s your name?” Carissa fidgets a little and walks behind a frozen Shizuo for some kind of protection. “I’m not going to hurt you. I don’t hurt girls, especially little cuties like you.” Shizuo snaps out of his trance and goes to hit him with a street sign again. Izaya dodges and runs towards Carissa. Carissa backs up a little and trips falling on her but and looking up at Izaya. “You want to get out of here? Shizu-chan needs a cool down.” Carissa looks at Shizuo who continues to run at Izaya. Not thinking twice or looking back she runs away from the fight.
Shizuo and Izaya’s fight continue for a while longer until Izaya escapes from his sight. Shizuo calming down and realizes what happened with Carissa. Not thinking twice he goes to look for his little girl. Carissa please be alright.
Carissa is silently crying on her own on a playground bench. Is Shizu-kun alright? Who was that man that was fighting with him? What should I do?
“Hey there cutie.” Carissa looks up in shock at the man who was fighting Shizuo, Izaya. “You shouldn’t be crying on your own here.” Carissa scoots away from Izaya, but Izaya sits next to Carissa and puts his arms over her shoulder. “Why don’t you tell me what that was all about, yeah?” Carissa looks away. Why would Shizuo have been worried about you little girl huh?
“I-It’s none of your business.” Carissa tries to speak defiantly.
“I’ll tell you why I was fighting him if you tell me what that was about.” Carissa looks up at the raven haired man.
“How do I know you won’t lie?” She questions. Izaya smiles thinking to himself that she’s giving in, good.
“My duty as an informant won’t let me lie cutie.” She looks away again.
“...Alright fine...and my name is Carissa, not cutie.” Izaya smiles at the girl.
“Okay Carissa-Chan, so can you answer my question.” She shakes her head.
“You go first. Also what’s your name sir?” He chuckles to himself.
“I’m Izaya, I framed Shizuo for crimes I did and he lost a lot of jobs because of me. I also like to mess with people's lives so he doesn’t want me around here.” She smiles at Izaya which makes his heart flip. Not only could I not lie, but I felt something from her smile. What on earth could that be?
“Okay my turn. I was dumped on the side of the road in a duffel bag beat up and Shizu-kun found me. He had his friends, Shinra-kun and Celty-kun, help take care of my wounds. I talked with him and he at first was worried about adopting me since he said he would hurt me. But me and the other two begged and then he adopted me. I’ve lived with him for two months now and he’s really fun.” So the rumors are true about the adopted child.
“What about your biological parents?” Izaya questions. Carissa shakes her head and looks to her lap.
“They were killed…” Izaya feels a pang in his heart different from the smile. It was pain. Izaya hugged her tighter.
“I’m sorry.” Why am I apologizing to her? I shouldn’t care about her at all. I should just use her to get to Shizu-Chan.
“Why did you frame Shizu-kun?” She asks Izaya looking back up.
“I-I thought it would be fun.” Izaya says honestly. She nods.
“Was it fun?” Izaya was about to respond but found that he couldn’t. Was it fun? It was something he never thought about. But before Izaya could get his thoughts together, Carissa was pulled away from Izaya by a man from the yellow scarves and he gets kicked in the face. Carissa fights the man but none of it phazes him.
Izaya finally waking up goes after the man and Carissa. He got a good stab in his shoulder with his pocket knife and got the child back, pushing her behind him for protection. “Who are you?” Izaya asks the yellow scarf member.
“A client you shouldn’t’ve messed with.” He goes to attack Izaya. But from out of nowhere, a vending machine comes in and hits the man away from them. They look to see Shizuo standing there pissed, usual for Izaya and strange for Carissa. Shizuo comes and gets Carissa from Izaya and walks away leaving Izaya dumbfounded. The yellow scarves member knocked out and everyone around them whispering.
