The house was quiet throughout the day for the first time since she returned to Beika; Kaito had started his first day of school at Teitan and Okiya was nowhere to be found. Yukiko found the graduate student's behavior rather odd, as she presumed that he would have spent most of his time in Yuusaku's office.

Since the office was vacant, Yukiko took advantage of the time and continued her research on Sharon. For the first time, Yukiko realized that there wasn't a whole lot on Sharon or her alter-ego Chris available on the web aside from fan theories about the actress's private life. As she thought back to her chats with Sharon, Yukiko wondered what was real—there was absolutely nothing available to confirm her former friend's words.

Why hadn't I noticed this before? Yukiko thought to herself, bewildered.

Her train of thought was interrupted when she heard Kaito come home early. Quickly, Yukiko pressed the Windows key on her keyboard and the M key to minimize her current activities and then entered the computer lock screen. Yukiko left the office and closed the door from behind.

"You're back early, Kaito-kun! Did something happen at school?"

School, Kaito thought, had been fun.

Not so fun for the teacher maybe, but it had been fun for him. There was a reason it was a private school, Kaito thought; full of tradition and stuck-up ness and people with no fun- Well, never fear, Kaito was here!

Which prank next? What teacher? Well damn, he should have stuck a few cameras in the room before he left. He'll do it tomorrow.

And he's already at the house.

Kaito fished out his keys and opened the door, humming as he did so. He should make a copy of these, he thought to himself. It would save some hassles- Not that he really minded picking locks, though. It just left a mark if anyone was watching closely enough.

"I'm home!"

He shouted; and briefly wondered if Yukiko-san did something during the day. That thought was dashed away, however, when a call resounded back; Oh, wasn't Kaito home early today?

(And perhaps he heard a door closing. He wondered if Yukiko-san was hiding something because no one ever shut doors when someone else came home unless they had something to hide.)

(Or coming out of the bathroom. Kaito promptly decided Yukiko-san's business was her own business just for this time.)

(Or maybe it was just a coincidence?)

"Mm, yeah, nothing too important. School was just too stuffy."

Kaito said, wondering how Yukiko-san would react. His own mother usually rolled his eyes and lightly reprimanded him, or just wasn't there to really say anything. Or just sighed. She was used to it.

Yukiko laughed at Kaito's remark, completely agreeing with him. "That's Teitan High for you. Maybe with you around, they might loosen up—they're used to having detectives around, you know. I'm not sure how the school's been since Shin-chan left."

"Who was your teacher? Meet anyone interesting?" Yukiko asked merely out of curiosity.

"Oh! By the way Kaito-kun, since you're home early, I need you to stop by the Professor's sometime today. He needed help with a little something, but I'm in the middle of doing some research on the computer and taking advantage of the office while Okiya-san's out."

"Detectives," Kaito declared, "Are boring. No wonder they're so.... well, boring."

Kaito made a face, scrunching it all up and shivering just a bit out of not-so-feigned horror. Little toy soldiers, they were. Not even a wooden toe out of line.

How in the world did they live like that?

"I stand by my earlier comment," Kaito said disgustedly when asked about the teachers. He had only met two teachers and then he had been kicked out, so well, not much of a selection to choose from, really. But still. Really? Didn't all schools have the crazy mad scientist teacher or that one fun loving teacher with the childish demeanor that everyone loved? Didn't seem like it, not at this school. If there were, they probably were brainwashed or something.

(Oh god, Kaito didn't want to be brainwashed. Abort! Abort! He rather liked not being a bland detective zombie thank you very much, there were plenty of them back home, and by plenty, he meant one.)

(Ugh. One was a crowd for bland detective zombies. If he stabbed Hakuba with a wooden stake- oh wait that was vampires- but if he stabbed Hakuba with the zombie equivalent, would it work?)

(He should try it later on.)

"Consider it done!"

Kaito chirped merrily when he heard what Yukiko required- anything to prove that this town wasn't filled with bland detective zombies. Oh. Well.

"Uh.... wait. Back tracking a bit. What does he need help with?"

He asked a bit belatedly, laughing at his own stupidity.

Yukiko laughed when she heard Kaito—words she expected from a magician. She still found them fascinating, enjoying any attempt she was given to show off her deduction feats, although she couldn't help but concur at times. Even with Yuusaku and Shinichi, there were times when their deductions weren't necessary, yet they still performed them. It was, after all, in their blood.

It was refreshing to have a magician in the household for a change.

When Kaito finally agreed to assist the professor and asked his question, she paused and placed her index finger against her chin. "I don't know, actually—he wouldn't elaborate. I wouldn't be surprised if it's something for the kids. You'll probably find out when you're there."

Kaito frowned, then shrugged, finally kicking off his shoes and walking up the stairs. No point in going over to the prof's now- Haibara'd be at school. He had seen the young girl around Tantei-kun, and he had been curious about her for quite a while.

"Gotcha, Yukiko-san!"

He yelled back, when he reached the top of the stairs. God, he shouldn't have left during first period. He had a lot of time to kill.

-[=]-

'Staying still' was never a command that Kaito adhered to very well, even if it was one that he had given himself. End of school found him at the local cafe with a hoodie on watching the highschoolers stream by, chatting to themselves in groups as they walked home or alone and a tired expression on their faces. Kaito figured he had been out and about long enough; he should get back to the Kudo household, actually bother to flip through the text books he had gotten from the office at the morning, and maybe pick up a few items to spy on Tantei-kun.

And oh, maybe figure out what was up with Ran.

Kaito walked lazily towards the house, stopping when he saw a familiar figure standing in front of it. Why was she here? To apologize? To talk with him? Because she thought he was Shinichi?

Probably the latter.

Gods, he did not want to have this conversation.

"Ran-san?"

Kaito called, a cup of iced lemonade in his hand.

Sometimes, Ran didn’t know what to think. This was a time that she couldn’t understand anything at all. It didn’t make sense, it was even more ridiculous than the theory she once had that Conan-kun was actually Shinichi! Such a thing couldn’t be possible though, even if she had thought, for the longest time, that Professor Agasa might have made something for him to hide when he got into trouble during a case. It was silly to think that people could shrink, but it wouldn’t be hard for Shinichi to mess up his hair and change his name.

Her hands tightened into the fists she always formed during Karate tournaments. She could feel her eyes sting, until she bit her lip to shake away the urge to cry. Why did Shinichi have to do something like this? Did he find this cruel prank to be fun? Was this his idea of a joke? Or did he dislike her so much that he’d go this far just to avoid it.

It couldn’t be--could it? Could he be annoyed at me ranting to him all the time?

Ran knew that it was probably something that she had done that caused him to start this charade, but he didn’t have to go that far, did he?

Did she matter so little to him that he’d run off, disappear off for months without anything more than a few phone calls, then return as someone with a different name? Ran blinked at the moisture forming in her eyes. Did he disappear off for so long just to scheme this horrible prank?

She continued to watch the door from behind the fence of the Kudo household, not caring if people thought she was a thief or stalker.

Ran’s eyes hardened as she watched Shinichi--or Kuroba Kaito if that was what he wanted to call himself now--leave the house. It had to be Shinichi for sure. No two people could look so alike without being related and no one but Shinichi would be living in the Kudo household. If he hadn’t gone and announced the place he stayed at in front of the whole class, Ran would have considered the place he stayed as to be proof of his identity.

That’s smart of you, Shinichi. But don’t think that I’m fooled.

He couldn’t be anyone but Shinichi. If he wasn’t, he would have no reason to do something as suspicious as skipping school. He must have done that to avoid her.

Placing both hands on her hips, Ran marched up to Shinichi. “So, you finally decided to show yourself, huh, Shinichi?”

“I don’t understand. Why do you have to do something like this? Isn’t it enough for you to disappear off and tell me nothing other than you being on a case?” Ran’s voice rose as she spoke. Her vision blurred as her anger peaked.

“How can you do something like this like it’s completely normal? I can understand that you’re a stupid deduction maniac who can’t stop himself from solving a case, but this! What wait for me? What case after case? Cases my foot!”

“Don’t you know how worried I was, Shinichi? I didn’t know where you went, and you only called every now and then! I thought you might have gotten into some trouble on a case, but all this time you were just planning this sick joke?”

"Woah there, Ao- Ran-san!" Kaito automatically yelped, when Ran suddenly started stalking towards him, her expression too much like Aoko's when angry for him to be comfortable. The steps he took back were unconscious, and he darn well would bolt if anything like a mop or a fist came his way like he knew happened when Aoko got angry.

But this wasn't Aoko.

And now that he actually looks... even Aoko doesn't look angry like this when she chases him after with a mop.

It's a quiet desperation, he sees and hears, and he can at least relate to that, the pain of losing someone you love.

He winced as her voice rose and pursed his lips- He didn't bother to get a word in, he knew it wouldn't work and Ran would be angrier. He remembers vaguely similar cases like this as KID, like with a boy and his father, and he had tried so hard to save them but-

Even if it was a completely different situation, the tone and the level of delicacy is the same.

He really wondered where Kudo Shinichi had run off to, the brat he was. Didn't he know it was common courtesy to call his girlfriend everyday?

"I'm really sorry, Ran-san," He said, choosing his words carefully, knowing that she was a ticking bomb that would blow up if he said something wrong. Or if he said anything, really, but he needed to get it in Ran's mind he wasn't Shinichi, he didn't want her to chase after him with the wrong thought in her head. He respected at least that much.

"But I'm afraid that I'm not Kudo Shinichi, and never claimed to be- I have my own childhood back in Ekoda, and Yukiko-san can prove that if you need it. I had been worried that this was the reaction you would have, considering that I look so similar to him, but I assure you that I am a completely different person."

The tears, if Ran blinked at least once, would come falling down her face. That's why she bit her lip harder to the point that the skin would break.

How far was he going to take this? Was he seriously that fed up with her?

Ran's rational part of the brain refused to acknowledge the truth, although the signs were there. She had missed him so much to let it go anyway. Disappearing one day without a forewarning, then going by calls and only appearing for not even a day from time to time... well, no one could blame her if she wanted to speak and be with him when he returned to school. After all, going back to school must be a sign that he was returning, if not permanently, then at least for a lengthy period of time.

But the boy, her brain thought, couldn't be Shinichi. The looks may contradict since they could pass for twins (again, given if he wasn't that Detective Freak posing as a different person) except for the now messier hair and an even more cheekiness to his attitude. He couldn't be Shinichi because he had acted so differently with situations as much as he acted in the same way as her friend. Besides, Ran knew him. She would know. He wouldn't do that to her anyway. Right?

How far was he going to take this?

"So that's it?" Ran asked, lowering her head. "You're going to do this all the time now."

That was when the tears rolled out of her eyes, and she wouldn't let him see it.

It was bad. Kaito wasn't an idiot, he could see the tears on her face and her biting her lip- He was well versed in body language, psychology was part of the job. Shinichi was a douchebag. That's all he had to say on the manner, feelings and trust weren't made to be puppeteered only when necessary, it was an ongoing effort.

Unless he just couldn't call Ran.

Just exactly what did the detective have up his sleeve? What made him so elusive? Why did all the stories conflict when he asked of his absence?

Maybe he should just go and pretend to be Shinichi, but it wasn't something he would risk. What if he was involved in something, just like Kaito was?

And he didn't dare betray the girl in front of her.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, he had once teasingly said to Aoko. He now knew why- It was more heartbreaking than anything.

"I can't answer that, though I wish I could. I'm not Kudo Shinichi."

Kaito says simply.

" I would pretend, but that would just be a lie. You deserve the real thing, Ran-san. I'm just a copy you could chase after but I'm not real. I can't pretend to be someone that I'm not."
