Together In The Dark

Chapter 11

"Hey, did you get a hold of your folks," Saya asked Miroku. Miroku sadly shook his head.

"No, apparently my dad's in a meeting and my mom doesn't own a cellphone."

Saya turned to Luka who was currently sitting at his computer as the three of them were in tech ops. "Shuusei is working on softening up Damon Wes, you and I need to find answers and feed them to him. The most important thing is to find out what that legislative piece is. Hopefully we can use it as leverage to find Takano and Onodera san." She turned to Miroku again, "Are you absolutely sure you have no idea what the Minkan Gunji Legislation is?" Miroku shook his head. "No, no I guess you wouldn't just like you didn't know that Shuusei and I were actually cops, or that Onodera and Takano were kidnapped even though you saw them be kidnapped!"

"Hey, Saya cool it, he just…" Luka was cut off by Miroku.

"I was scared, you have no idea what the guys who work at my dad's company or Bell Industries are capable of."

"Yah, I'm sure Onodera and Takano don't either," Saya shot back.

"I was scared!"

"You're a coward," Saya injected as much venom into her voice as possible. Miroku could only sit there quietly and take it. He looked down at his hands resting in his lap, knowing that Saya was right.

Luka sighed as he got up and walked away from Saya and Miroku.

Saya rolled her eyes. "You're a condescending bitch, you know that, right," Miroku shot at her heatedly.

"I know, it one of my best qualities."

"Best qualities? What the hell!"

"If you're going to be an ass, you might as well own it," Saya smirked as she followed Luka's trail out of tech ops.


"This will all go easier on you if you just tell me where the men you kidnapped are," Shuusei sighed. Damon Wes continued to just sit quietly as Shuusei bombarded him with questions while his lawyer worked on getting a deal.

"As I told you before, my client is willing to tell you anything in exchange for immunity."

"And I told you, that we know one of the men has been shot. The best your client can hope for is a reduced sentence, provided he didn't kill the man when he shot him," Shuusei shot back.

"I didn't shoot him." Silence filled the room. It was the first time Damon Wes had spoken.

"Well if you didn't, who did?" Damon averted his eyes again and held his tongue.

"We know this all revolves around a piece of legislation in the Diet. Once we find out what it is, we won't need you. You can make this all better if you tell me everything." Silence again filled the room. Shuusei sighed as he looked at his watch. They were running out of time.


"Fuck yes," screamed Luka with his hands in the air.

"What," asked Saya.

"I just saved 15% on car insurance by switching to Geico."

Saya stared at Luka blankly for two minutes before quietly replying, "Someday, I am going to find that gecko, run him over with a car, barbeque and deep fry him, flush him down the toilet, shove him up your ass, and then introduce him as your bride at your wedding."

Luka just grinned, he knew how much Saya hated reptiles, which is why he used that line. Ahh sweet revenge to piss somebody off! "I've been trying to find info about the legislation, so for the past few days I've been trying to hack into the government servers that contain all the information about our governments laws, secrets, and leaders."

Saya's eyes open wide at this, "Tell me you didn't."

"Ha haa, I just got in," Luka smiled.

"Hacking is illegal! You're going to be arrested," Saya hissed.

"Well I think it's worth it! Have you slept since this affair began, because I know I haven't!"

"Did you find out what the Minkan Gunji Legislation is?"

"I did." Luka smiled, basking in the glory of his awesomeness.

"Well? ...You going to tell me or do I have to play twenty questions?"

Luka smiled before turning to his laptop, "You're going to love this."


"What are the names of your conspirators," shouted Shuusei banging his hands on the table. "You and your cohorts gave the Onoderas until the end of the week which will be tomorrow! If either Onodera Ritsu or his friend, Takano Masamune die, I swear to god, I will make it my life's mission to rain down such hell as you have never imagined!"

"Wait, what? Onodera? Who the fuck is that," Damon asked incredulously.

"Mr. Wes, don't speak," his lawyer tried to cut in.

"No, no, no, no. This is the first I'm hearing about an Onodera or Takano. What the fuck is going on!"

Shuusei smiled slyly as he leaned back in his chair, "Remember when I said you and your cohorts fucked up this kidnapping? I meant you grabbed the wrong person. Onodera, while comes from a rich family, has no value to you, your cohorts, or whomever you are working for in terms of changing whatever the hell the Minkan Gunji Legislation is. What do you think will happen when your boss finds out you fucked up? He's going to bury you and hang you out to dry, wash his hands of you and let face the full extent of Japanese law, if he doesn't kill you first himself." Shuusei could see the pure terror in Damon's eyes now. He finally had Wes san right where he wanted him. "You want a deal," he asked quietly. Damon quickly nodded his head as his lawyer looked on with narrow eyes. "Flip on your friends and boss first, tell me where Onodera and Takano san are, and what this piece of legislation is and I can get your sentence reduce to half it's time."

Damon looked to his lawyer to see what he thought. The councilor chewed the inside of his cheek before nodding his head to Damon to give him the go ahead.


Saya and Shuusei slammed into each other as they rounded the corner. They both excitedly shouted, "I KNOW WHAT THE MINKAN GUNJI LEGISLATION IS!"

"How did you find out," Shuusei asked with a gleam in his eyes.

"Luka hacked a government server. You?"

"I scared the shit out of Wes Damon, and he told me!"

"That bill…" Saya stared wide eyed at Shuusei.

"…would be worth billions to Bell Industries," finished Shuusei.

"Did he tell you where Onodera and Takano san are?"

"No, I rushed out to tell you that I found out what the legislation is. I'm about to find out though," Shuusei replied as he turned on his heel.

"I would wait a second," Luka called to them as he walked down the hall towards them. "I just got a call from dispatch. A person of interest in our case just walked into Tokyo University Hospital and is causing quite the scene."

"Who," both Shuusei and Saya asked at the same time.

"Takano Masamune."
