Maruna sighed, powering up her tech room.

"Miss me?" She asked other gamers on Star Line, killing a few in the process.

"MM, that's not fair!" A few whined after they revived themselves.

"Deal with it." She mumbled, casting a few buffs on herself. They practically made her invincible.

After a while, around 10:00am, she switched to a chatroom, where her name was also MM.

-MM has signed on-

"Hello everyone and Good morning!"

Chat Room

Taro Tanaka: Good morning, MM.

Setton: MM, good to see you.

Inside Shinra Kishitani's appartment, Ikebukuro

A woman was typing away on the keyboard of a laptop computer. But this was no ordinary woman, she was a dulahan, a fairy of Irish folklore who didn't have a head. And this could clearly be seen by the black shadow-like smoke coming from her neck. A man with brown hair and wore glasses walked into the room. This man was Shinra Kishitani, an underground doctor.

"Hey, Celty, you got another job." Shinra said.

"How's it look?" Celty typed onto the laptop so Shinra could see.

"Pretty simple. You just have to deliver a package."

"Did they say what was in the package?" Celty typed.

"Nope. They never do." Shinra said.

Celty then typed into the chat.

Chat Room

Setton: Sorry guys, I gotta a job to do. Good bye.

Taro Tanaka: Okay, bye.

-Setton has left chat-

Taro Tanaka: I'd better go, too. Bye, MM.

Mikado Ryugamine's apartment

Mikado pushed himself up from the spot where he'd been sitting infront of his computer. He then streched his arms and yawned, "I've got to get ready for school." He said, then pulled on his Raira Academy uniform. He was straightening his tie when he remembered something. "I totally forgot! I was going to meet Anri at the 'Ureshi Mart'!" And with that Mikado sprinted out the door toward the shop.

"Well, I suppose that I should get off." Maruna mumbled signing off. "Time for... school." She took off her tech suit and changed into her uniform.

"Wah." She yawned laying her head on her desk.

A boy of about sixteen sat lounging against the window of a bus. His arms behind his head his face with a lazy yet aloof grin. His golden blond hair fell in his eyes, you'd think he was asleep.

"Its been a while since we've been here" said a short haired girl by his side

One of his eyes opened "Yup~" he sighed "But i think its time I make an appearance I've been gone so long they may have died without my knowing" he grinned one eye still closed

"Masaomi don't say that" the girl replied chuckling a bit.

suddenly the bus stopped. Masaomi lifted his head both eyes wide "oh are we here?"

the girl and turned looking out the bus window at Ikebukuro.

"Welcome back Saki" Masaomi said joining her

(hope the colors don't annoy people sorry >.<)

Mikado Ryugamine was running as fast as he could down the busy street of Ikebukuro, breathing heavily. He stopped and bent over, resting his hands on his knees. "Man," Mikado said, inbetween breaths. "I should really get in shape."

A very tall black man was standing next to Mikado, holding a pile of fliers in his hands. "You look tired. Come, eat sushi." The man said, in Russian accent.

Mikado was a little startled by the man's booming voice. He hadn't noticed, until now that he'd decide to rest infront of the Russia sushi shop. "Oh, hey Simon." Mikado said, a smile on his face. "Sorry, I have to get to school. But maybe later I'll come by for some sushi." And with that Mikad sprinted off again.

As the boy started to sprint off again he felt his shoulder bump into something. He didn't know it was a person until the man said. "Hey, watch where your goin'." The man's voice was rather bitter.

Mikado immediately bowed his head. "I'm very sorry!"

"Hey. I've seen you before, right?" The voice said, not sounding any less bitter.

Mikado lifted his head a little to see who the man was. His face contorted as he understood who the man he just ran into was. This man was rather tall and wore the clothes a bartender would usually wear, he had average length blonde hair and blue sunglasses.

"Y- you're Shizuo Heiwajima!"

"That's right, who are you?" Shizuo said, putting a cigarettein between his lips.

"I- I'm Mikado. Mikado Ryugamine!" Mikado said then bowed again.

"The name sounds familiar, but..." Shizuo said, then looked up at the sky, thinking. "Shit, I can't remember."

Maruna pulled out her high tech cell phone. They were hard to get your hands on.

She clicked button that made a hologram screen pop up. "Let's see what's going on in town." She mumbled, hacking th towns cameras. She saw Shizuo and kid from her class. "Ohoho."

"Oh, wait." Shizuo said, fguring out where he'd seen the boy before. "You were there when the Dollars had their first meeting. Well, I guess you could call that a meeting."

"Uh, y-yes. I was there." Mikado stuttered.

"You were talkin' to Izaya, right? Speakin' of that weasel, have you seen him around recently?" Shizuo asked.

"Umm, I don't think so..." Mikado said.

"Damn. Well, actually that's good and bad." Shizuo said. He pulled the cigarette out from inbetween his lips and stepped on it. "It's bad because I can't beat the shit out of him, but good because I don't have to see or hear his pathetic face."

Just then a black bike pulled over next to Shizuo. The bike's engine made no noise, and the rider was wearing a yellow helmet with cat ears.

Both Shizuo and Mikado looked at the bike as it haulted to a stop. "Celty?" The two asked in unison. She pulled out her PDA and typed out, "Shizuo, I'd like to talk with you."

Shizuo nodded. "Yeah, sure." He then stepped on the back of the bike.

Celty then held up the portable device to Mikado's face, it now read. "I need to talk to you later, as well. After school, okay?"

Mikado's face filled with shock when he read the message. "I forgot about Anri again!" He yelled then sprinted off.
