Scarlett's Story (A Death Note Fan Fiction)

Scarlett was raised at Wammy's, and after many years, L has come into contact with her again! She leaves her friends to help with the Kira case, but is that it? Or are they all going to see each other again?


2. Recognition

I sat nervously on the sofa at headquarters. Would L even recognise me? Would I recognise him? I guessed that I had changed more than him; after all, I was still only a teenager; why he had chosen me to help him I would never know. I played with my hair and I remembered when Near would do his best to comfort me by doing just this.

“Scarlett?” I jerked my head up when I heard my name.

There he was. His black hair was just as it used to be, sticking out in all directions. His dark eyes were still black underneath due to a lack of sleep and he was still hunched over just like the last time I saw him. In front of me…was L.

I stood up, but I still wasn’t eye level with him. I couldn’t think of what to say, so I hugged him instead. Hugging was like a defence mechanism for me; if I didn’t know what to do, I would hug someone. It wasn’t really just hugging that brought me comfort. As long as I had some kind of physical contact with another human I was okay.

I pulled back rather quickly, realising that it wasn’t really the right thing to do in this situation. He showed me to a small sort of apartment that was meant to be mine and gave me some time to unpack. It didn’t take long; I didn’t own much. Once I was all sorted out, I went down to meet the investigators.

I didn’t exactly help that much with the case, it was more making L cake and bringing everyone coffee. But I was okay with that. L knew that I was good at making disguises, so when the time came, I would be needed.

One night, Matsuda had got in trouble with the Yotsuba group. Of course, I wasn’t told what exactly was happening; but I was told that the conman Aiber needed to look like Matsuda. All that was really needed was a wig, shirt, tie, etc. I was allowed to come down though. The rest of the investigators, including me, needed to look like paramedics and arrive in an ambulance and everything.

It was a while after this that I was allowed to become a more active investigator. L told me that they believed that Higuchi, one of the people from Yotsuba, is Kira and that I needed to do some snooping. I was following him one night when he turned around and saw me! He must have thought that I was Misa because of my disguise. I acted as if I were Misa because that way I might find out how he kills.

We were driving along the freeway when an explosion and a bright light seemed to come out of nowhere! The car swerved and hit the wall. My head had crashed against the window and I could feel it throbbing. I looked up at what the light was and it looked like fire.

I looked around some more and I saw countless police cars and a helicopter. I tried hard to just focus on breathing steadily, but my head was bleeding quite badly and I couldn’t help but panic. The police all had tinted helmets, so it was clear that he was being arrested under suspicion of being Kira.

Just when things started looking up, a red sports car zoomed past and someone inside began shooting towards the police, but not actually hitting any of them. This had obviously turned the attention away from Higuchi and I, using this as cover, a black motorcycle pulled to a stop outside my window, taking over the blindside of the car. He, like the police, had a shaded helmet so I couldn’t see properly who it was. I didn’t have any more time to think when he held a gun to my smashed window.

“Get out of the car!” He demanded.

“Everyone hold fire!” Called one of the officers, “He has a gun. None of them can be killed.”

I was terrified, but I couldn’t help but recognize that voice from somewhere...
