Chapter 24:

Kaito's past

The Doll Metaphor Part 1

(One year ago).


"Where are you looking at, Kaito-kun?"

"Nothing particularly."

"You're so dense, Kaito-kun."


"I know you were looking at the sky, I was too."

"I was not."

"Yes, you were."

"OK, you can say that I looked at it for a few seconds...What about it?"

"It could seem like a completely normal thing, but for you, Kaito-kun, it's not."

"It's not normal for me?"

"Not at all."

"A down to earth guy, the realistic type, one that would help his family, even if it meant having no real life, a guy that would sacrifice everything for his girl but not for himself. The fact that you're looking at the sky means that you still have dreams, a soul that doesn't accepts himself's nature."

"But I accept my nature, also, I'm a big bad guy, prepared to do anything that my bosses tell me to do. Unlike you Tsumugi, I've no redeemable qualities." 

"And you would kill me if your boss ordered you to?"

"Of course not! Are you crazy?!"

"See? Your job is just a job, working for your friends and loved one is far more important to you."

"Huff..."I sighed out of frustration.

"You are overrating me too much. I kill people, you know?"

"And you downplay yourself too much to."

"Ok, Ok, you're right, I value far more you than those pigs that give me money, but does that resolve anything? I want to be with you but because I have no money, I can't leave the life I have."

"Who said you couldn't? Kaito-kun."


"Why don't you steal the money from your next boss? If it's enough to make our life together..."

I got up from the roof (we both were laying on the roof).

"Are you kidding me?"

"No, I'm totally not." 

"So, we say that I got the money, you'd live wi-"


"Wait a damn second, do you know how difficult it is to live with an asshole like me?"



"I am serious on this one. Do you really want to live with me?"

"I ain't joking, you heard me the first time." 

Present time.

I drove the fast I could.

"Wonder what happened to my dad after tricking them...Kaito, who were they?"

"I don't know, maybe the Tokyo police?"

"POLICE?"She screamed.


"We're in deep shit, real shit."

"I am, you're not."

"Whatever happens, I will stick with you, even if it means going to prison."

I already knew that I wasn't going to the prison, anyway.

"Let's make this, we both stay at my mother's house, in Kichijoji."I said.

"Seems like a good idea."

After one hour, we finally arrived at my mom's place.

"Can you grab the money that is on the backseat?"

She grabbed it and exited the car. In that instant, I made the car move backwards, making a 180 degrees reverse drift. Then drove away from there the fast as possible. 


I had no other choice.

Pulled the phone out of my pocket, called the Tokyo police.

"Tokyo police department!"

"I'm one the terrorists that attacked the royal castle yesterday, tonight, I will be waiting near the Ikebukuro station."

In mere seconds, I turned off the call after.
