"That's right, I'm not human. I am just one of many pawns."
SHAN'S eyes were sad as she stared at Nabeshin's face. They were in the hospital at the time. She has been attacked by the disease several times, and his health seems to be deteriorating. She did not know how long the young man would last, all she knew was that it will be the last attacked for Nabeshin. There is still a lot to take care of, especially since ZNT is just beginning.
With a slow sigh, she walked to the window where she could see below the nearby school. Shan could clearly see the children playing in the middle of the soccer field, a brief scene passed through her recollection.
The weather was almost the same back then, with only moderate heat brought by the summer weather. Shan's eyes twinkled as she remembered Nabeshin's cheerful smile back then. One of the fun scenes she had with them.
Shan stopped in recollection when she heard a soft knock from the door of the room where she and Nabeshin were.
She was surprised because they had no expected guests, she told their crew that their boss needed to rest and they understood that. However Shan preferred to open the door knocking and maybe it's nurse.
The man outside the room was unfamiliar to her. She is estimated to be over forty years old. A miserly smile he glued to his lips as Shan studied the him carefully.
"Good morning, can I talk to Mr. Nabeshin?" This question did not bother her.
"Who are they?" Shan asked again. He glanced briefly at the unconscious Nabeshin from his bed before staring at the front again.
"I'm Detective Kenjiro Shibazaki," he introduced himself who even pulled out a badge and ID as proof.
Immediately the building tension on Shan's chest. She glanced at Nabeshin again. Apart from the fact that the young man is not yet conscious, she cannot be stressed. Shan didn't know what to do and think.
"My intention is important, miss, I just have a few questions about ... Mr. Toji Hisami ..." continued the older man who took out a small notebook and read something there.
Shan's face suddenly pale, she was swallowed by saliva several times and his palms suddenly sweated at that time ...
"Come on, Nine you've been locked up in your room for a few days. Come outside and let's play soccer!" Toji was with his friend as he moved the ball around with both hands.
Nabeshin ignored him. He was motionless from sitting near the window and looking out from there.
"I have no desire to play." Nabeshin later replied.
Toji just scratched his head while shaking his head looking at his friend.
"Come on, Nine, Von is waiting outside. You supposed to teach her to play soccer."
She smiled enticingly at him.
He noticed the twinkle in Nabeshin's eyes, a smile also curved on its lips. Toji felt sad but he immediately wiped it from his chest. When Nabeshin started walking away he immediately followed.
"As for your time, I'm playing a game!" Shan shouted at Nabeshin and Toji when she saw them approaching. Toji just laughed.
"It's like Nine, still acting!" Toji's blast at his friend.
"I just feel not okay today," Nabeshin replied.
Immediately the smile on Toji's face disappeared, he approached his friend, full of worried.
"We can play soccer another day, Nine, if you feel bad. S-sorry I don't know. Have you called your Doctor yet?" Sequentially he said.
"I'm okay now," was his simple answer and then snatched the ball from his hands. He quickly kicked in the air then he ran and kicked it causing it to enter the net. He picked up the ball again and then started playing with his knee.
He slowly approached Nabeshin's side. He was about to grab it when he quickly kicked the ball to Von.
"Catch!" Nabeshin shouted.Suddenly, Von couldn't escape so she was hit in the face. Nabeshin immediately joined the girl as she sat down on the grass while Shan and Toji laughed out loud.
"A-are you okay, Von? I'm sorry I didn't mean to," Nabeshin apologized here.
"It's okay, Nabeshin." Von said softly as she shook the skirt that had been soiled from the crash on the ground.Nabeshin's lips twitched when he noticed the redness of Von's nose, that's the exact part where the ball he kicked earlier hit. The young man felt ashamed of Von. None of its own touched Von's face, he gently made a caress on the woman's nose.
"D-does it hurt around here, Lisa?" Nabeshin asked worriedly.Although Von was shocked by Nabeshin's actions, she just let it go.
"No worries Nine," the girl replied. "I'm okay. Don't worry. Just play, I'll just watch."
Before Von could move, Nabeshin grabbed her by the elbow and then guided her to a chair.
"Toji!" Nabeshin calls out to him.
Toji, who was in the middle of deep thought, turned around to his surprise.
"Oh w-why, Nine?" he wondered.
"Get an ice pack inside," Nabeshin commanded him.
"It's not like it's swollen, Nine, don't-" Nabeshin hadn't finished what he was going to say when he shot him a cold look so he didn't do anything but follow.
Getting the ice pack Toji immediately returned to the field but he was also shocked when he saw how much Nabeshin paid attention to Von. He saw that his friend was still fixing the girl's hair that covered her face.
As if something was squeezing Toji's heart, he quickly averted his eyes. It was then that he noticed Shan just quietly standing to one side. After calming himself down, he immediately approached the two, forcing a smile to stick to his lips. Nabeshin immediately took the ice pack then carefully patted Von's nose.
"Come on, let's play!" courtesy of Shan, she started to play with the ball. She later kicked the ball to Nabeshin who quickly caught it.
They have already started the game, Toji only occasionally glances at Von.
They were so happy because they seemed so free in those moments, even though Von wasn't playing he knew it felt the same way, no worries and open.
When they had been playing for about half an hour, they decided to stop. Toji should have approached Von but Nabeshin preceded him.
"Come Von, teach us." Smiling young man's invitation. "Toji said you want me to teach you how to play soccer."
"O-okay." Von's response in shy voice.
Toji watched them intently from not far away.
"Isn't this what you want to happen, Twelve?" Toji whispered to himself.
He must be happy because at least Nabeshin is happy, but the truth is that what caused him was pain. He just forced himself to smile even though he was really very affected by what he saw.
"It's only temporary, for Nine's good ..." Toji encouraged himself.
He immediately approached the two and worked with them. Forced to cover up the secret of smiles the bitter truth.
SHAN was shocked when Detective Shibazaki suddenly nodded."Can I meet him now, miss?" it grabbed her attention."Ahh ... hmmmm ... S-sorry that's Detective Shibazaki. Unfortunately Mr. Nabeshin is still unconscious," Shan explained in front. "You can tell me what Sir Nabeshin is going to talk about. I'm actually his secretary. "He stared at him for a long time, there still seemed to be hesitation on his face. If it will trust everything to her."Don't worry since high school Nabeshin and I have been friends. I know all his activities and he trusts me."He stared at her for a while, then handed her an envelope. Shan accepted it immediately. Shibazaki said goodbye after he was told to give it immediately and read the contents of the envelope to Nabeshin when he woke up because it was so important.Shan stared at the envelope she was holding. For no apparent r
"I wish all will disappear ..."He continued to crawl on the cold floor in pain, his mouth tinged with blood. It felt like every bone in his body was broken, his breathing labored. His eyes widened as he saw three silhouettes before him. He turned to look at the source and managed to lie on his back slowly.What he saw made his blood run cold.“Please…” he whispered. “Leave me alone…”Their faces split into sneers until they broke into spine-tingling laughter, it echoed all throughout the room they were in.“Leave you alone?” said a voice. “Did you ever felt remorse when you killed us? No, you didn’t. We’re here to return the favor. We will make you suffer
"Almost everything is resolved with a blast, a bullet, and one look toward the sky."NABESHIN has been not on his own for several days after Shan dead. He could barely sleep and had no appetite. There was no time that Shan's memories of him in life and still with him frequently haunt his mind. It seems that his fate was stingy because only Shan, whom he considered the only member of the family, was gone ... and the pain was in a way he had never imagined."Is this the In exchange of destiny on me?" Nabeshin silently talked to himself as he lay and stared at the ceiling of his room as if he could see from there Shan's beautiful face smiling at him with sweetness.Later he slowly sat down on the bed, he slowly glanced at Shan's shoulder bag. The young man's hands were still shaking when he finally reached out and touched them. He stared at
SHIBAZAKI heard a gunshot from inside so he ran even faster."Shit!" Its very cheap, almost flying the stairs up to the fifth floor.When he arrived he quickly widened his eyes to find the target. His quick step was suddenly stopped when he entered a room, he was immediately attacked by the intense smell of the combined rusty smell and death. He saw Nabeshin crouched sitting on the floor. There is a red mark on the wall behind it where its blood, bones and brain squirt together. Abundant blood flowed from its exploded skull, a gun in its hand.His teeth chattered as he was late arrival. He sighed when he approached the corpse, the young man's eyes were still open but he restrained himself from closing them or moving them even a little because the crime scene and the corpse might be contaminated. After a while he slowly looked around, but his attention
