Chapter 37:

Princess Elizabeth

The Doll Metaphor Part 1

In front of me, a young girl that I only met this morning said that she's part of the royal family, a hard thing to believe, really. Why bother about a detective that nobody cared like me? Everything seemed suspicious, the way she walked, spoke, behaved, if she really was the princess, why she wasn't behaving like one? Myths say that, this little girl right here was considered the smartest among her family, having an IQ of 600.

"Can I make a question for you?"I said.

"Go ahead."

"Do you really have an IQ of 600, like the myths say?"

"That must be the watered down version, at the present moment, I have an IQ of 800."


"Let's not stray further from the real situation at hand, in the next two hours, a massacre will happen."She said.

"Like the one that happened in the Yakuza's headquarters?"

"That's right."

"But who'll do such thing atrocity?"


All the muscles in her face were stretching, a deadly serious face. A strange situation, a loli, said to be the smartest in humankind, was sleeping like a cat in my bed and now is posing like an experienced Yakuza. 

"How do you know all this?"

"Aia, can you go to that window and see what's outside."

I went to the window like she said, looked outside, a stranger was staring at the window, his face was made of nothing, like real nothing, his body was made of porcelain. I fell backwards, scared.

"Who is that man outside?"I asked.

"A friend of mine."

"A friend of yours? He scared me to death."

"I think you now are starting to understand, guy like you saw seconds ago are all spread out throughout the city."

"And that's how you can spy on everyone, including Valry?"


"But that's invasion of privacy!"

"What's invasion of privacy?"

"Well, it's wh-are you trying to trick me?"

"Your colleague, Matthew, pissed her off so much that, yesterday, she decided to rampage through the whole city."


"Your heard me right."

"Now that you know that, you also know the consequences of that, bet the king will not be happy with this. I am his daughter but I can't just ignore what your insolent friend did."   

I was petrified by the news, knowing that because of him, many people died.

"Hopefully, I have a solution for all this mess."

"What is it?"

"Our next destination is a cemetery."


"After defeating Valry, I mean."
