Two days later
Shizuo, Izaya and Carissa meet up for their second hang out. They all decide to go to an arcade, by all I mean Carissa with a little bit of Izaya and a reluctant Shizuo. While there they get coins and divide it amongst themselves.
“Hey Shizu-chan!” Izaya calls to Shizuo who gets pissed but magically keep sit under control.
“Yes Izaya.” He looks at the flea.
“I challenge you whoever gets the most tickets wins and the loser has to do one thing the winner asks them. Carissa hears Izaya and smiles.
“Can I be a part of this too?” She asks gleefully. Both think to themselves. This is my chance to get Carissa to stop making me and that flea/protozoan from hanging out and being buddy.
“Of course you can Carissa and I agree with this.” Says Shizuo who smiles evilly at Izaya. For some unknown reason Izaya shiver. He doesn’t feel scared but he still shivered at his glare. Why do I feel like I’m getting hot? Izaya shakes it off and glares right back at the monster.
“Yeah this will be fun!” Izaya smiles. “Start now!” They all run from each other looking for a game they could play.
Shizuo found a dancing game and looked around to make sure no one was near as he knows how to dance due to him helping his little brother. He smiles and gets on. He picks a song and starts to dance away. He gets a lot of tickets from his dancing and passes by the prize booth and takes a bit to look at all the prizes. I think Carissa would love this toy, but Izaya would love this one too. Shizuo lightly blushes and shakes his head. Did I just think about getting that fucking flea a gift? He leaves the both and plays more games trying to get his mind off of what just happened.
Izaya plays a puzzle game and wins the jackpot, then goes looking for another game when he sees a dancing Shizuo. He stares in awe at his dancing. When the hell did this protozoan figure out how to dance? Why can’t I look away? Izaya feels that strange heat creep through his body again and shakes his head than runs away.
He looks and finds another good game to get his mind off of things. Then he finds another type of puzzle game to play and plays it to his heart’s content.
I find one of my favorite shooting games ever and plays finishing all the levels in one goal, getting a huge amount of tickets. Then she runs around and goes from game to game to game. Getting a good heap of tickets and smiling like a goofball.
Then she bumps into this man. The man is tall and has some muscles. Carissa quickly apologizes and tries to turn and run. But the man grabs her by the collar of her shirt. Carissa looks up at the guy and sees a strange look in his eyes. One she’s never seen before. His eyes were kinder red around the irises and he smelled strange. She tries to break his grip but can’t.
“You’re that monsters little girl huh?” He speaks in a deep creepy voice. “I wonder what he would do if I had fun with you.” She fights him even more and is about to scream but the man covers her mouth. She can’t breathe since his hand is covering both the nose and mouth. She feels herself lose consciousness and fights it. No no no no! Not again I don’t want to leave Shizu-kun! I don’t want to lose him or Izaya-kun! Then the man lets go of her and she runs into another man. Looking up she sees Izaya.
“You shouldn’t try to abduct little girls like that, it’s very rude.” Izaya says glaring at him with his knife in his right hand and his left around Carissa protectively. He laughs and before Izaya could react gets punched in the face.
“Izaya-kun!” Carissa looks down. By know the people all back up not wanting to do something against the infamous informant. Izaya wipes his chin and smiles, then cuts the guy down the chest.
“I’ve felt worse.” Izaya says remembering the times Shizuo chased him down the street with a street sign. The man gets up unfazed and goes to hit Izaya but then he gets pulled back and thrown across the room. Shizuo looks at the man with a deadly glare.
“Die!” He screams and punches the man through the wall. Carissa looks at Izaya.
“Are you alright Izaya-kun!” He smiles at her and nods.
“Like I said before, I’ve felt worse.” He feels happy to be called Izaya-kun by her. The goliath comes towards us taking deep breaths trying to calm himself down. Then he looks at both Izaya and Carissa.
“Are you guys alright?” me and Carissa both nod. “Good, thanks for protecting Carissa Izaya. Now let’s go cash those tickets in.” Izaya feels as if his heart skipped a beat.
Did he just thank me, not only that but he asked if I was okay? Wait wait! Was he worried about me? Izaya follows them to the machine that counts the tickets. Meanwhile Shizuo internally freaks out.
Why was I so angry at the guy for hitting the flea? I shouldn’t worry about the flea. I was pretty pissed off for him putting his filthy hands on Carissa, but why was I equally worried for the flea? Carissa wins with 572 tickets, Izaya is in second with 320 tickets and Shizuo is in last with 299 tickets.
Damn it, how long was I playing that dancing game?! Izaya smiles at his victory over Shizuo but looks down at Carissa who has a mischievous glint in her eye.
It’s official, this informant is afraid of this little girl. She turns to both of the two men and smiles. Both shiver in terror.
“Yeah I won!” She cheers. Shizuo smiles at her.
“Good now how about you get a prize.” She nods then says out of nowhere.
“But you guys have to buy a prize for each other.” They look in shock at the girl. “It’s a good idea since I’m trying to get you guys to become friends, then you guys should buy each other a memento of this strange yet glorious day.” They look at each other than look away. Shizuo and Izaya reluctantly nod.
“Y-You go first then Carissa; I need to think about what to get.” She nods and heads up to the prize box choosing all her gifts.
Meanwhile Izaya starts to think of something to get Shizuo. What exactly does this guy like, maybe… He shakes his head. It doesn’t matter whether he likes it or not just get him something! Then he sees a stuffed bear in his ticket price range. To Izaya it screams Shizuo. So he goes and gets that.
Shizuo looks around, maybe I can get him that prize from before. But what if he doesn’t like it? Shizuo goes wide eyed. The fuck am I thinking, he doesn’t need to like it. It just needs to be a prize I can get. Then he spots a miniature toy figurine, the guys had some sort’ve super hero outfit. Why the hell not? Shizuo goes and gets it. Then they leave the establishment and Carissa smiles at them.
“Well I’m waiting.” She says enthusiastically. I hope they like the gifts they got for each other! Hopefully it will strengthen their bond.
Izaya goes first and hands him a stuffed bear. “This is what I got you Shizu-chan!” He says with a playful smirk. Shizuo smiles at it. It’s so simple yet It feels like he actually tried.
“Thank you Izaya.” Izaya’s heart begins to pound as Shizuo takes it. They accidentally touch hands and both feel a strange heat and electric current run through them. Both do their best to ignore it and Shizuo gives Izaya is figurine. “This just fit you...also a thanks for being Carissa’s hero back there with that man.” Shizuo through clenched teeth says ‘that man’. Izaya looks at it in shock. Then grabs it and smiles.
“I didn’t even see this there! I used to watch this show when I was a kid! Thanks Shizu-chan!” Izaya genuinely smiles at Shizuo. Shizuo’s heart did a somersault in his chest at his words. He looks away and mumbles.
“Your welcome.” After that they went their separate ways again agreeing to hang out partially because of Carissa.
