*Mel told Mail only that she needed to head out early to help Ryuuzaki with something. She didn't want him to worry while he was sick, and she figured if he needed details, he could get them after she was back safely.

In the mistletoe room, she didn't even know she was anxious about what might happen until Mikami threw the sheets of paper into the fireplace and relief hit her, and she realized the situation had been the equivalent of an unstable person holding a loaded gun.

She doesn't quite hurry back to the room, but she is eager to get there. When she does, she undresses swiftly and slips back into bed, getting into her usual position with a hand on Mail's shoulder and her head tucked under his chin.*

[Mail isn't worried too much when Mel mentions needing to assist Ryuuzaki. In fact, he returns back to a dull doze, but for some reason still can't shake the slight bit of worry.

It's odd, and a slight nagging feeling pressing at the back of his mind. But it's gone when Mel returns, and he awakens completely, still drowsy, hugging her close by the waist when she slips back into bed.]

Welcome back.

Hey, love.

*She leans up and kisses his cheek.*

Feeling any better?

Date: 2008-12-16 11:16 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
A bit. How'd it go? [He kisses her forehead.]

*She hugs him closer without consciously meaning to.*

Fine. It was fine.

Date: 2008-12-16 11:24 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
[He catches it, and peers down at her curiously.]

What happened?

Date: 2008-12-16 11:32 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Nothing, I just- You know how sometimes you don't feel worried until after something's over? It was like that.

Date: 2008-12-17 04:08 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I know... I was worried the whole time you were gone. But why were you? Did something happen?

Date: 2008-12-17 04:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Oh, I'm sorry, sweetie.

*She kisses his cheek again.*

Mikami, the older one, had some pages of the murder notebook. L convinced him to burn them, but he wanted me along just in case.

Date: 2008-12-17 04:18 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
[He kisses her forehead, but has to pause.] took extra precautions, right?

Date: 2008-12-17 04:20 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I- *She bites her lower lip for a second.* Had my gun in my waistband, instead of the hip holster. And L was with me.

Date: 2008-12-17 04:22 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
You didn't have your face covered?

Date: 2008-12-17 04:24 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
What would be the point? He's seen me plenty of times.

Date: 2008-12-17 04:32 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
There would be many points. For example, it's hard to imagine how someone looks if they're standing right in front of you with their face covered. You tend to imagine the covered face instead, as opposed to their normal appearance. Also, he could have forgotten your name. You don't know that. It takes less than five seconds for someone to write a name, Mel.

Date: 2008-12-17 04:36 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
It takes less than two for me to draw and fire, love.

If he wanted to kill me, he would've done it already. And I wouldn't have stayed dead.

Date: 2008-12-17 04:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
That doesn't help, Mel-!

[He sighs, and presses his forehead to her shoulder, speaking in a very quiet voice.] What if something had happened? What if you never came back?

Date: 2008-12-17 04:42 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Shh, shh. *She pulls him close and strokes his hair.*

L would've told you what had happened, and that I'd be back. Light killed someone using that same paper, and it didn't last, OK?

Date: 2008-12-17 04:44 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
It's not okay... you put yourself at such a risk, and I couldn't have even been there...

Date: 2008-12-17 04:47 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I don't want you within line of sight of Kira. Any of them.

And I wouldn't have gone if I'd thought there was any real danger.

*She sighs, and kisses his hair.* I didn't mean to worry you.

Date: 2008-12-17 04:54 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
And I don't want you in their sights, either.

There was a real danger, Mel. There was a murderer there with his weapon.

[He kisses the patch of skin closest to his mouth.]

Date: 2008-12-17 05:01 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I know, I know all of it. I'm sorry. *She pushes his hair back and kisses his temple.*

He was there to give it up. He's come back to the right side. We had to take the risk.

Date: 2008-12-17 10:27 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
[He nods a bit, but doesn't reply, and kisses her shoulder.]

Date: 2008-12-18 02:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I'm not the only one who was in danger as long as that paper was around. Anyone whose name is unique could've been a target.

*She takes his chin in her hand and looks into his eyes.*

I am sorry I worried you, but... my work's not always going to be safe, you know.

Date: 2008-12-18 09:15 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
[He nods, but it's meek and quiet.] I know.

[But, he kisses her shoulder again, and is maybe only a little playful when he speaks up, in an attempt to lighten the mood.] Which is why you should just work from home. I could, too, that way you can keep an eye on me and I could keep an eye on you.

Date: 2008-12-19 02:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
*She does laugh, but it's quick and soft.*

Sit safely inside our security system? Liebling, I'd go batshit.

Date: 2008-12-19 02:41 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I know. [He kisses her on the nose, apologetically.]

Date: 2008-12-19 02:58 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
So would you. *She tips her head and kisses his lips softly.*

I know you miss performing.

Date: 2008-12-19 03:26 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I do. [He smiles a little and pecks a quick kiss to her lips.]

Date: 2008-12-19 03:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
We're gonna save the world, Mail. It'll be as safe as I can make it.

*Her tone of voice clearly says she means to make it absolutely safe for him.*

Date: 2008-12-19 03:20 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
[Mail smiles and nuzzles her neck.] We?

Date: 2008-12-20 01:23 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Of course "we." I need you with me.

*She slips her fingers through his hair, just petting gently.*

Date: 2008-12-20 09:04 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
For emotional support?

[He runs his hand along her spine.]

Date: 2008-12-20 09:11 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
For everything.

*She snuggles closer and kisses his shoulder.*

Date: 2008-12-20 03:25 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Nah, I'm pretty sure it's just there for emotional support.

[He grins and kisses her forehead.]

Date: 2008-12-21 02:18 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I might ask for more than that. *She's been thinking about this.* If I have to.

Date: 2008-12-22 12:11 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
*She lifts her head to look at him, smiling a little.*

Just like that, no questions asked?

Date: 2008-12-22 04:28 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I love you.

*She gives him a quick kiss.*

I won't put you in danger.

Date: 2008-12-23 01:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I love you, too.

[He smiles and gives her as well.] Mel, being famous isn't sunshine and butterflies, either.

Date: 2008-12-23 02:15 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I know.

You'll wait 'til it's safe before you record an album, right?

Date: 2008-12-28 12:50 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I don't know. It depends on the deadlines.

Date: 2008-12-29 01:55 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
It might be best if you waited to get a recording contract 'til Kira's finished. I'd worry less, anyway.

Date: 2008-12-29 02:10 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I'd have to start small, anyway. Like just little performances in bars and pubs.
