Why Suzu Heiwajima Loves Ikebukoro

By Renate


Why Suzu Heiwajima Loves Ikebukoro

I only own my OC

I don't own Durarara, or the cover image


I didn't want her to get involved.

I didn't want this to happen.

Hey, Shizuo, I wanna come to Ikebukoro.

Now the clothes Kasuka gave me are turning red.

But that doesn't matter; I can wash that out later.

What matters is that my baby sister is bleeding out in my arms as I run, trying to get her to help.

Why? I wanna spend time with you, that's why.

"Shizuo... Shizuo... Shizuo..."

"Yeah Suzu?" I try to conceal the panic I'm feeling.

I'm gonna kill that fleabag bastard.

I know you're busy, but when you're not working, we can hang out, right?

"You... gonna... pick me... up from school... tomorrow?" She asks, her voice trembling.

"Yeah. Stay awake and I'll pick you up every day for the rest of the year." I reply.

"Sounds... like... a good... deal..." She replies.

Why are you so worried Shizuo? I'll be fine as long as you're around!

"Shizuo... Do... me a... favor... if I don't... make it..." She whispers.

"Don't say that. You're gonna be fine!" I shout. People clear the sidewalk as I continue running.

"Kill...Izaya. Get it... done. Then... you... can stop... worrying... about it..."

Don't be worried. I'm planning on living a normal high school life at Raira.

"I'm planning on killing that bastard anyway, don't worry about that." I say.

She doesn't reply. Why doesn't she reply? Why is she quiet?

"Suzu? Hey, Suzu?"

There won't be a problem, as long as you always call me when you can't come get me.

"Suzu? Hey, wake up!" I command.

"How... much farther..." She breathes out with an exasperated tone. At least she is breathing.

"Just a few more blocks, just don't pass out." I answer.

What do you mean, 'are you afraid of me?'

"O...Okay... I... I'm awake..."

I run into Shinra's apartment building. Praying that he's home.

I kick the door, careful not to break it down, but I can't move either of my hands.

Of course I'm not. Why would I be?

"Celty! So glad you're home!" I hear Shinra call through the door. he throws it open and the look of happiness on his face morphs into one of terror.

"What the hell happened!?" He demands.

"That fleabag bastard Izaya happened!" I shout, gently giving Suzu to Shinra.

Being scared of you just because you're strong is like being scared of the kitten just because it has claws.

Shinra locks the door to the room while I'm on the wrong side.

I grab a sheet before lying it across the couch to prevent myself from wrecking their expensive couch with the blood staining my clothes.

I hear Shinra trying to comfort her. Trying to get her to calm down. He's muttering about how she's lost a lot of blood.

Why do I think Ikebukoro is great?

It's an hour now. An hour of the painful groans. The screams.

I've long since tried to block my ears to stop myself from hearing the screams.

It doesn't work.

Well it's simple.

Shinra finally exits the room.

"Shizuo... I'm sorry..." he says.

A deep feeling of horror creeps through my veins.

I love Ikebukoro because you're here...

"She had lost too much blood..." He continues, but I'm barely listening.

Why did I let her come? Why did I let her get mixed up in all this?

I'm going to kill Izaya while he lays dormant in his damn bed.

...and I love you Shizuo!

Deleted User: I've only read so far to the first two chapters, but I already get that thick, underlying meaning of dark romance--which is good, because it sets the tone, with a hint of danger.
