A Week Later
People have started to figure out about the monster’s little companion and write about it all over social media and the news. This pisses of Shizuo and makes him extremely clingy to Carissa as he worries of people going after her. “Hey Shizu-Kun!” Shizuo looks down at Carissa with a smile.
“Yes little one.” She smiles and looks at the playground.
“Can we go there? Please!” She starts to pout. I can’t say no to her...Damn!
“Sure we can.” Shizuo picks up the little. “Let's go!” She smiles happily laughing as she gets a piggyback ride to the park. Ladies have been coming over to him constantly asking about his relationship status because of Carissa. It gets annoying but Carissa tends to take care of it herself.
For example, this group of girls came over to him clearly trying to shove their cleavage in his face and Carissa, being the smart mouthed girl she is, told them off. Saying that “My Shizu-kun is too good for you” or “you shouldn’t shove your boobies in his face”. Shizuo laughs at her when she does this. Right now Shizuo is pushing the little girl in the swing and she’s laughing to her heart's content. Shizuo’s glad to be able to help Carissa after such a traumatic event. Despite that she still has nightmares, due to that she tends to sleep next to Shizuo often as it helps her sleep better.
After a while of playing they go to get some Sushi from Russian Sushi. They say hi to Simon as they enter the store. “This is fun Shizu-kun.” He smiles at her.
“I’m glad, I really wanted to spend more time with you since I work so much.” They sit and order and continue to have fun.
Izaya hasn’t been out of his place in over a week, he can’t stop thinking of that little girl and her question. He decides that he should confront her again and ask her what she meant. The only problem with that was Shizu-chan as he would never let Izaya get close to his little girl. This is frustrating why can’t things be simple for once! He shakes his head and gets ready to leave thinking that he may be a walk would clear his mind up a bit.
While walking he say Shizuo with Carissa at this park but hid and went quite. These girls went up and started talking to Shizuo. Even from here Izaya could see them shoving their cleavage in the monster's face. Izaya felt mixed emotions about this. He wanted to laugh at their awful attempts, then to slit their throats. He had no idea why but that’s what he wanted. But then Carissa started saying some things which got those girls mad and made Shizuo laugh. They left those girls dumbfounded and went to the swings were Carissa was laughing with Shizuo.
Izaya felt a pang again and had no idea why. His reactions left him with even more questions than before. Due to this he decided to head to Russian Sushi and get his favorite food to calm himself down a little. Finally, something that’ll really help me clear my mind. He smiles as he eats his Fatty Tuna.
Just as he was about to leave he and Shizuo saw each other. Shizu-chan must of got here a little while after me. Shit! Shizuo is about to pick a table up and throw it at him in rage. But little Carissa won’t have it. She grabs his sleeve and drags him towards Izaya. Izaya tries to back up but finds himself against one of the tables. Carissa grabs Izaya’s sleeves and makes them hold hands.
“No more fighting. You guys cause destruction every time and I’m sure no one wants to keep on paying for it.” Both of the adult males look at her in shock. Shizuo tries to let go of the hand but Carissa keeps him there. She looks up at Shizuo with puppy dog eyes. “Please!” Doing so struck a chord in Shizuo’s heart.
Damn it! Why do I want to spoil her so damn much?! I can’t say no to that fucking face! Shizuo takes a deep breath and nods at her. Everyone in the restaurant stare in shock. Izaya starts fighting the grip.
There’s no way we’ll ever stop fighting. Especially not just for this little girl. Carissa looks at him with the same face and his it strikes a chord in Izaya’s heart as well. Why the hell can’t I say no?! Izaya reluctantly nods and she smiles that big smile of hers.
“Good. Now let’s all go hang out together.” She drags them out of the restaurant leaving everyone in whispers.
An hour later
Shizuo and Izaya are watching Carissa play in the park with smiles on their faces. Both think: I love and hate her cuteness. They look at each other but refuse to make eye contact and an awkward silence fills their atmosphere.
What do you say to your enemy who you’re forced to hang out with? “So...Uh Carissa is one beautiful girl huh?” Izaya says trying to start a conversation. Shizuo nods.
“She really is...I don’t deserve her in my life.” Izaya looks at Shizuo in confusion. “You of all people know about my dangerous temper and strength and yet I keep a little girl who looks so frail around me all the time.” He shakes his head. “I worry about her.”
“It’s normal to worry, she seems to calm you down which I see as a good thing.” Shizu smirks.
“Of course you do, it means less of a chance of me throwing a vending machine at you.” Izaya laughs.
“There’s that...and it is true we really are destructive. You know this girl shocked me at one point.” Shizuo looks at Izaya making him fidget a little. “I told her about what I did to you and why and she asked me ‘was it fun?’ I’ve been thinking about it for the past week and it won’t get out my head.” Shizuo laughs.
“I didn’t know it took a little girl to make an informant question his actions?” Izaya shakes his head.
“Neither did I…” It goes quiet and Both are internally freaking out. Did I just let him in on my thoughts? What the fuck did this little girl do to me. They both think. Then these groups of girls’ approach Shizuo trying to flirt with him leaving Izaya in the background. This makes Izaya feel those mixed emotions of amusement and anger. He still doesn’t know what it is and plans to try to ask someone later. Carissa comes running in to save Shizuo again.
“No! Shizu-kun isn’t going to be with flirts like you girls.” Shizuo is fighting back a laugh as he doesn’t want to be mean.
“If not us then who else could there be?” They ask. Izaya wants to punch them in their faces. Acting as if they're better than him...wait a minute...did I say better than me? No I didn’t that did not just come from my thoughts.
“A lot of people actually. I just don’t have names. At least they weren’t shoving cleavage in his face like you gals.” Shizuo can’t take it anymore and bursts out laughing at his little Carissa.
“I love this girl so much!” He says laughing. The girls turn on their heels, clearly offended, and walk away. “Okay now I have to ask, this is the 5th time you’ve done this. Who do you think is good for me?” Shizuo smiles as the little girl sits in between the two of the most dangerous men in Ikebukuro.
“Someone who doesn’t use boobies, face and but as their go to. Someone who sees you for you and can take you on a thinking level. Not to mention have to both go against and with your personality.” Shizuo laughs at her and ruffles her hair.
“Alright so tell me when you think you’ve found that person and I’ll try going on a date with them ok?” She giggles and nods at him.
Why did I compare myself to those girls? Why do I like Shizu-Chan’s laugh and why did I immediately think I fit her criteria? Thinks Izaya while Shizuo and Carissa chat away. But the day comes to an end and they go their separate ways. Not without Carissa getting them to agree to a next time.
