Chapter 10


-You were very careless. Along with the belongings there was a ticket containing the date and time the cars were left in the car wash, among them was yours, you took your car to wash and clean everything inside the day after Saiko's death. Tell me why you decided to do well the day after her death? Don't you find this a little suspicious? No matter how I look at it, you are a complete amateur. Leaving all these clues. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-It's him! (extra 1)Bookmark here

-Hiroshi killed Saiko! (extra 2)Bookmark here

-No, you're wrong. (Hirsohi)Bookmark here

-He framed the little boy to get away with it. (extra 3)Bookmark here

-No... I wouldn't do that. (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

People's voices started to enter his head driving him crazy.Bookmark here

-What a rotten man. (extra 4)Bookmark here

-Useless! (extra 5)Bookmark here

-It would be better for society if he killed himself and died at once. (extra 6)Bookmark here

-Shut up... shut up, shut up... shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up -shut up, shut up... SHUT THE MOUTH ***!!! (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

Everyone in the court looked scared at Hiroshi, not even the judge could reprimand him for being scared by the scene.Bookmark here

-YOU CAN'T TALK ANYTHING TO ME. WHO ARE YOU? WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT ME? YOU DON'T KNOW P*** ANYTHING! You... can't say anything... (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

Everyone looked at that scene in amazement, but no one had the courage to say a measly word, except for a certain person.Bookmark here

-I asked for a report to the police about you. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

A break in the silence, everyone's attention, even Hiroshi's, focused on Ryu.Bookmark here

-I read it and found out a few things. As a child, he studied and attended Japan's state school for boys. After entering a college with average grades, he decided to study law and become an admirable lawyer. When he finished law school, he began his career in law. You have not committed any crime in your life. He married Mrs. Hachimoto with whom he had a daughter. End. You know Hiroshi, after reading all this do you know what I noticed? That you had nothing in that report. It's just a normal report like anyone else's, there's nothing interesting about it. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-... (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

-Ryusaki, what is this... (judge)Bookmark here

-Your Honor, I will tell you exactly everything that happened until the night of the murder. First Mr Hiroshi I will start with why you became a lawyer. When you were in high school, your personality and appearance never stood out, so you felt like you were just another person in the crowd, with nothing different when you saw a lawyer, how he was respected by society, regardless of your appearance or way of being all the people around respected you, that's why you decided to become one to be respected too. However this did not happen, in fact, even being exemplary in your profession never caught a big case, making no one care about you, your coworkers even felt angry at you for your way of acting. Even though you don't look like you don't have friends, you should have a group of friends in which you go out to drink and relax, but seeing him telling his life stories you saw that he had nothing in yours to be proud of. He didn't become a successful lawyer, didn't have other great accomplishments, and didn't marry a beautiful woman. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-What? (Hiroshi's wife) 

-Calm mother. (Hiroshi's daughter) Bookmark here

-But that all changed when you started being Saiko's lawyer. A unique young woman, more beautiful than any girl you've ever seen in your life, if you were with someone like her it would certainly be quite an achievement in your life. After years with her, you finally got up the courage and said you wanted to be with her, but of course it happened and she rejected you right away. You realized the big mistake you made, a married man asking you to go out with another woman and even more so Saiko. Desperate and frustrated, you took the first object you saw in front of you and hit her on the head, but when you regained consciousness you saw what you had done. You went to check her heartbeat and saw that she was no longer breathing. At that moment I'm sure time stopped for you. What would you do now? You just killed someone, should you turn yourself in? How would you explain the situation to others? He saw that there was no way out and tried to hide the murder, but as she was a famous person, people would notice her disappearance so she had to blame someone, then she ended up in a neighborhood with no camera, you took a path that wouldn't have how the cameras catch you and not even induce you to pass by there, or in the street beside the alley. You have booked a room in a building, I can confirm this as I asked for the list of people who rented a room in the building and their name was on it. So you parked your car in the garage and went up in the elevator with a bag that contained Saiko's body. You were careful to rent the room that faced the Dumpster so you could dump her body from there and the pile of garbage would dampen and reduce the noise making people think she was killed on the spot. instead of having been played. Waiting for the exact time you observed a single person passing by and that person was Souta. It was perfect for you, no one else but him passed by, soon he would be framed and you're off. You just had to wait for the right time when everyone was sleeping to release the body and to forge something you had already pierced her body with a knife and stamped the bleeding, so no one would suspect that she died from the blow to the head, but from a stab, in which the knife left no impression and you just had to get the impression of the person you were going to incriminate. That's why she only showed up the day before the trial, because that's when you got the prints to put on her. So to finish you just threw the body into the bucket, but as it was full, it bounced out of it and fell to the ground, the stamped bleeding point opened again and made her blood run down the floor, but this it doesn't matter, as no one apparently noticed, as everyone was asleep at that time. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Amazing... (Souta)Bookmark here

-That is all. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-IMPOSSIBLE! (Hiroshino)Bookmark here

-Hmmm? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-With what evidence did you come up with it. How did you know all this. Didn't have any clue how you ended all of this? (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

-Deduction. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-What? (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

-As I said I got the report about you, I looked at your history and after seeing how you were personally I managed to deduce everything that happened just thinking about how you would act. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here


-You say that, but answer me one thing. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Hmm? (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

-Was something I said wrong? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

At that moment Hiroshi's eyes widened, it was as if he had seen a ghost, his body began to break out in a cold sweat and his thoughts had emptied, there was nothing he could think of, at least that's what it appeared to be, but in his head a The question kept resonating inside her. "Who is this person?"Bookmark here

-Looks like the defense has convincing evidence on the case... there doesn't seem to be any other explanation after all that's been said. Mr Hiroshi, do you have something to say? (judge)Bookmark here

-No sir... I have nothing more to say... the culprit... was me. (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

-Hiroshi... how can you... (Hiroshi's wife)Bookmark here

-Very well, then I declare Mr. Hiroshi Ideki guilty of Saiko's murder. Case closed. (judge)Bookmark here

-Yeeiiiiiihhhhhhh! You got Ryu! (Souta)Bookmark here

Souta jumps for joy towards Ryusaki.Bookmark here

-I never thought you would be able to reverse the situation. You really saved my ass. Really. Thanks. (Souta)Souta bows in front of Ryusaki.Bookmark here

-Don't worry and besides I thank you too, because after everything we went through it was quite fun. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Where did you find it fun?! It wasn't fun for me! (Souta)Bookmark here

-Hahahahahahaha. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

Ryu, you might never know this, but... I will be forever grateful for what you did for me today. I will never forget this adventure we had.Bookmark here

-Boys! (Saiko's father)Bookmark here

-Yes sir!? (Ryusaki and Souta)Bookmark here

-No, you don't need to call me sir. (Saiko's father)Bookmark here

-What was it? (Souta)Bookmark here

-My wife and I wanted to say something to you. (Saiko's father)Bookmark here

At this point the two kneel down and bow their heads to Souta and Ryusaki.Bookmark here

-What?? Sir, we're in the middle of a crowd. Get up, get up. (Souta)Bookmark here

-Not! We are... (Saiko's father)Bookmark here

At that moment he could no longer speak.Bookmark here

-We just wanted to say that both my husband and I are deeply grateful. Thanks to you, our dear Saiko can rest in peace from now on. (Saiko's mother)Bookmark here

-Yes... (Saiko's father)Bookmark here

I didn't know what to say to them, didn't even know how to thank them for the gesture they were making. After all, I didn't do what I did for Saiko today, until the end of the trial I just wanted to get out of this mess and even so, these people are bowing down to a guy like me.Bookmark here

-Gentlemen... (Souta)Bookmark here

-Let's go Souta! (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Huh? (Souta)Bookmark here

-I'm starving, let's go back to your house and eat something. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Hey! Wait there Ryu! (Souta)Bookmark here

They left leaving the two alone.Bookmark here

-Why did you do that, we left them there without saying anything. (Souta)Bookmark here

-There was nothing we could do. Hey Souta, what do you think it's like to lose a child? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Where did this one come from? (Souta)Bookmark here

-I don't know, but when I stop to imagine what it would be like. I don't feel anything, I can't feel hate, I can't feel sad. All I feel is emptiness. It's like I've turned into an empty shell. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

Souta stopped to reflect on this. He hadn't even stopped to think about what those two were going through. He looks back at them and sees the two of them hugging each other, comforting the other.I think if I were to classify what I would be feeling.Bookmark here

-It would be love... (Souta)Bookmark here
