You knocked on the door shyly
"Come in. The door's open"
You blushed as you opened the hotel door. You saw L, or Ryuzaki as he asked you to call him, sitting in his usual fashion, holding a book in his hand ... in his usual chair. He invited you to headquarters after every meeting was done. You and he were very close ... in fact, you loved him. You sat next to him and he looked at you with a smile
"Hello, (Name). It's so good to see you" He said
You mimicked the way he sat and he smiled at you
"(Name) ... there's something you should know" He said, his smile dropping
You became concerned. He had shared all of the information about the case with you ... he even told you that he suspected that Light Yagami was Kira
"(Name) ... I fear that ... within a few days, I will be dead" L said
You gasped as tears began to form in your eyes. The idea of L dying wasn't pleasant. It broke your heart to even hear him talk about the possibility of it happening
"W-what makes you think you'll die?" You asked, upset
"Kira ... is up to something, I'm sure of it ... but the problem is ... Light was the only friend I had until I met you" He said, sounding sad
You saw he was shaking slightly ... so you knew that he was frightened ... and he wasn't lying
"I know it's hard for you ... but, one thing you can be sure of ... is that I will always be here for you" You said, patting him on the shoulder
Your back and your feet began to hurt so you went back to sitting normally
"Man, how do you sit like that?" You chuckled
He smiled
"Well ... let's get to work" He said
"Sure, what have we got?" You asked, looking at the papers scattered all over the coffee table
He sighed and told you about placing Misa Amane under surveillance and the fact that he was forced to release Light from the handcuffs (that scenario prevented you from seeing L for a long time ... and each moment that you didn't see him was torture). Then, came the subject of finding the Death Note - the deadliest weapon known to man
"So this is how Kira kills!" You said, surprised
L nodded
"Indeed, now ... look here ..." He said, opening the book "There are rules in the front and the back ... look at them and tell me what you think" He said
You obeyed ... you read each rule carefully ...

The human whose name is written in this note shall die ...

This note will not take effect unless the writer has the person's face in their mind when writing his/her name. Therefore, people sharing the same name will not be affected ...

If the cause of death is written within the next 40 seconds of writing the person's name, it will happen ...

If the cause of death is not specified, the person will simply die of a heart attack ...

After writing the cause of death, details of the death should be written in the next 6 minutes and 40 seconds ...

"Hmm ... these rules are strange ... it seems odd that someone would include rules in this thing ... not to mention sadistic" You said
"My thoughts exactly. It is indeed odd that someone would do this ... but that would be the case if it were a regular person who had written the rules. This is the doing of a Shinigami, who clearly don't think like we do" L said
"Of course, I should have thought of that. You're so brilliant, Ryuzaki" You said, blushing
He smiled at you
"You're beginning to gain very good deductive skills, too" He said
"I learned form the best!" You giggled


You sighed
"What's wrong?" L asked
"It's just ... hearing you say that you think you'll die soon ... it's just ... unbearable to even ..." You began to cry
He sighed
"(Name) ... if I die ... I want you to be the only one to know my name" He said
You gasped
"Why would you give me your real name so willingly?" You asked
"Because I ... find you intellectually intriguing" He replied, smiling at you
You grinned, a little confused ... what did he mean?
"My name ... is Lawliet" He said, looking at you with a serious expression
"L-Lawliet ..." You breathed
The name had a weird effect on you ... he had just given you the ultimate sign of trust ... but why?
"Lawliet ... I don't understand" You said
He sighed
"I trust you completely ... without question ..." He said
"I understand that much, but I-"
"(Name) ... b-be careful. I can't lose you like we lost Ukita ..." He said, shaking violently
"Lawliet ... what are you-"
"Kira is going to kill me ... and if he doesn't ... the Second Kira will" He said
You looked at the floor
"If that's the case ... then I want you to know that I-"
The phone rang
"Excuse me a moment ..." He said, answering it "Yes?" He said
You were annoyed that what could possibly be the last opportunity to tell him how you felt just went out the window
"What?! Now?" He said, sounding surprised
He sighed
"Alright, I'll be right there" He said
He hung up
"That was Matsuda. He needs help at the gate again" He said
You began to fiddle with your hands as he stood up
"Lawliet ... there's something I have to tell you ... and it can't wait!" You said, standing up
He looked at you, confused
"Lawliet ... I ... I'm in love with you" You said
He stared at you for a while ... then a small smile formed on his face
"I had an inkling" He said
You began to blush and he walked over to you. He moved so his head was by your ear. He had never got so close to you before ...
"I think I've fallen for you too" He whispered, backing away
You smiled and shed a tear as he kissed you on the cheek
"I must go, Goodbye, (Name)" He said
"G-goobye ... Lawliet" You breathed
He left the room. Little did you know ... that would be the last time you ever saw him ... alive

Ryuzaki (L) invites you to go over some evidence ... and reveals who is most precious to him ... and that his time is almost at hand

why does this fanfic callbl chan "ryuzaki"? does that mean ryuk??
SwiftNinja91 Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
No, in the anime L asked that people called him Ryuzaki to hide his identity

Just saying
Ninjapants237 Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2014
So he can stay mysterious, and so Light won't write his name in the notebook. Have you watched Death Note because if you haven't, you need to watch it now.
