The Detective's Bodyguard

By BLotusflower24

Romance / Mystery

Chapter 1 To Japan

Mace walked to her dresser pulling and dumping tons of clothes onto the floor of her room in Whammy's House. She hummed happily sorting and arranging them in order before depositing the clothes in her suitcase. A boy with bright red hair and piercing blue eyes was leaning against one of the walls with his arms tightly crossed. On the bed another boy with stylized white hair sat with his knees to his chest playing with small lego pieces; his dark brown eyes frequently gazing from Mace back to his toys." Mello dear you could help mommy out?" she said positioning her long white strands into a braided ponytail; the boy huffed turning his gaze from her.

"You can't fool me dear I know you're mad and I know you are too Near you don't really show it." The boys said nothing as Mace packed the last of her things and made her way downstairs; both Mello and Near following behind her." Ah, Mace good to see you again." The older man said bringing the woman into a hug; she smiled and released her hold on the man." It's good to see you too Watari it's been so long."

Mace turned from him to her sons." Would you mind putting this in the limo I'll be out in a sec." He nodded and took the suitcase outside closing the door behind him. Mace took a breath and walked to Near who was sitting on the stairs; she engulfed the boy in a hug kissing his head repeatedly. Then grabbed Mello pulling him into the embrace; he protested before giving into his mother's loving display of affection.

His eyes shedding small tears while Near slowly hugged Mace back." I will miss you both my little ones remember you both are precious to me. Don't forget to do your homework and go to bed early; try to get along as best you can. Please stay safe and obey the head of the house without protest." She stated gazing at Mello who just frowned; Mace kissed his cheek giving her boys one last look before leaving the house sobbing violently. Watari handed her a handkerchief to wipe her tears as she jumped into the back seat of the limo. Watari resumed his seat at the wheel and drove further from the residence;" I'm going to miss them. I have no idea if I am doing the right thing Watari; Mello's only fourteen and Near is eleven their so very young." Mace said fingering the locket around her neck.

" Don't worry they are not like normal children; Whammy's is for the extremely gifted." She rolled her eyes," Making them future detectives; I know I grew up in the place!" He smiled," Yes I know but try not to worry besides they take after you Diana." Mace sighed leaning more into the seat; Watari only said her real name when he was absolutely certain of something." I use to think so but they are more like their father." Mace sighed crossing her legs," Is L aware that I am coming to Japan to assist in the case?" her tone serious and void of emotion; she sounded like a queen questioning one of her subjects.

" No he is completely unaware of our plan; L won't know until you walk through the door of his hotel room." Her face twisted into a sinister smirk," Good we wouldn't want to spoil the surprise would we." The limo arrived at the airport, Mace emerged from the car and walked through the crowds; Watari followed closely behind with her suitcase. When they reached the gate he cleared his throat to get the woman's attention;" I have arranged first class tickets for us both but my seat will be a little farther from yours will this be alright?" Mace nodded," It would be good you need to relax after driving all the way here and you would not want me talking your ear off. This is fine besides I am tired and desire to take a nap anyway."

The two boarded the plane and took their seats awaiting the long journey to Japan." Won't L be happy to see me."
