Note 2: The story is dedicated and somehow requested by lilly0, but she has no idea what it is about. She had to choose between numbers and letters, and each was a pairing and setting, and so 2-B-white is Tackey/Ryo, AU and crime. ^^ And thanks for choosing a title to sweetspicyhot
Tackey turned around and ran back to the area, but he couldn't figure out anyone there. He searched around but there was nothing but a horrifying silence in the air. He scanned the area and pulled out the computer again. “The pollen are from here, and that aren't actually pollen, it's a special dust which appeared from stored paper.” Tackey read the information on the little monitor and clicked on various buttons to safe this information.
He walked around and hoped it wasn't too late at all and he'd find them save and healthy. He ran up to the other side of the building and felt some glass splitter underneath his shoes. He took a closer look and saw some small red particles on the ground and grass and the sand was in a mess, which could mean that there was a fight right before. Again he took the instrument and scanned the ground. On the monitor appeared Ryo's name and two other frames with “?” in it. So two other people were here, and it could only mean that Rei and Hiraoka were with Ryo.
Tackey felt his heart beat and tried to swallow the knot in his throat. He had to know what happened here, and he had to find his niece and Ryo before it was too late, but he had no idea where to search them.
Ryo stood in the cell and thought of a solution. He couldn't stay here and wait till anything would happen. The only thing he could do was climbing on the wall and trying to open the window. He stood up from the ground and felt a stinging pain in his chest. It seemed that he got hurt when Hiraoka brought him here and he felt the blood running down his upper body. Some of it poured on the ground and built up to a little blood strain. He tried to climb up there and jumped up till he reached the window sill. He breathed in when he felt the pain again and saw the blood was spread on the wall. He tried to open it but it was closed, there was no way out.
He saw Hiraoka and Rei directly under the window sill and he could see her fighting against his grip, but of course she wasn't strong enough to get rid of him. Ryo looked around and sighed deeply when he thought of the only chance he had to get out there. He closed his eyes and raised his arm to smash it against the window. A loud echo resounded in the hall and Ryo saw Hiraoka and Rei looking up at him.
He jumped down and ran till he reached them and he tried to fight against Hiraoka, but the other one was stronger and pressed him on the ground. Rei yelled out and tried to help Ryo but, she wasn't able to do anything. “Run, Rei...run and hide and don't look back.” Ryo pressed out and saw the girl staring at him before she turned around and ran across the place.
“You bastard”, Hiraoka yelled and pushed Ryo up. He could see the killer's dark and glancing eyes before he slammed him against the car and pressed him into it. He started the motor and Ryo felt the car was moving. He didn't know where the other one drove, because he wasn't able to sit up. The hits he got were too hard and his head became totally dizzy. At least Rei was in safety for now, and he hoped she'd search for help and maybe she could find Tackey somewhere.
Tackey wanted to walk back to his car when he heard a silent whining somewhere under a batch of wood. He pulled out his gun again and stepped closer to it. He knelt down to see something and threw away the gun when he saw Rei coiled up under it. “Oh god, Rei-chan.” Tackey yelled out and saw her looking up at him with tears in her eyes.
She robbed out of there and stumbled to Tackey where she pressed herself against him. “Uncle”, she sobbed loudly and felt Tackey's fast heart beat when she buried her head in his chest. “Is everything alright? Did he hurt you?” Tackey's voice was trembling and his hands were shivering when he stroked his niece's head softly. She shook her head and dissolved from the other one.
“He has Ryo-chan. He saved me and told me to run away and hide. I hid here because I didn't know where to go and some minutes ago I saw him returning, but he only cursed and drove away a short time later. I tried to make no noise at all, and he didn't find me underneath the wood.” Her voice was thin and she sobbed from time to time. Tackey tried to calm her down before he called his co workers and the ambulance. He dialed his sister's number and told her that he found her, save and alive. He felt relieved, because his one and only girl was in safety, but he was still worried because of Ryo.
Tackey heard the cars coming up to the hall and he saw his sister jumping out of one of the cars. “Rei”, she screamed and ran up to her and Tackey. “You found her, you are okay.” she started to cry and embraced her daughter closely.
“I am sorry, nee-chan, I have to search for my partner. He is still with the killer, and we didn't have him till now. My coworkers and the ambulance will take care of you both from now. We talk about everything later, okay?” Tackey smiled slightly and wanted to go when he heard the girl's voice from behind. “Uncle Tackey-chan?”
Tackey turned around and saw her looking at him. “Please find Ryo-chan. He is so kind and nice, and I want to thank him afterwards.” Tackey smiled slightly at her and promised to bring him back.
He hoped he could manage it to find him in time, but he was again on the beginning. He had no idea where Hiraoka brought Ryo, and maybe his research would take too much time. Tackey turned around again and saw his niece was still standing there. “Ano, Rei...just one question. Did the man say something about a place where he wanted to bring you?”
“He talked about the pipe down by the bridge.” Rei nodded shortly and thought of anything else, but she didn't remember another place.
Tackey smiled at her and started to run to his car. At least it was a hint, and hopefully Ryo was there and still alive.
Hiraoka stopped the car and pulled the other one out of it. He didn't think of sparing the other one, because he already lost the girl back there. And Rei was the main character in his game he planned from the beginning on.
He pulled Ryo along and saw that he was nearly unconscious when they reached the pipe which connected the fabric and the river. It would be the place where he'd die, and even though it was planned as Rei's grave, he was at least a bit satisfied that it'd be one person's grave.
He wanted to hurt Tackey, he wanted him to suffer, but that wouldn't happen when he'd chosen him, because Tackey's death would have been a short and not really painful experience for him. And Hiraoka wanted to see him suffering his whole life long.
He didn't get Rei, because of the bastard which was lying in front of him now, but at least he'd get him, and what he could see on the pictures he took last night, they were close to each other. “Are you afraid?” He laughed evilly and saw Ryo looking up at him, but he didn't answer.
“Why did you do this?” Ryo's voice broke and he coughed from time to time.
“Tackey ruined my life. He is the one who caused my daughter’s death.”
“But he didn't kill her.”
“No, but he stopped the research, and they found her drowned in the pipe. They never got the culprit, and that's why I needed revenge, revenge for her.” Hiraoka looked at the water and a short pain crossed his chest. He didn't want to think about his daughter and the laughter he missed most.
“And now you are nothing better than the guy who did this to you.” Ryo answered and tried to sit up.
“Shut up, shut up...” Hiraoka pushed on Ryo's shoulders and kicked him twice till he saw him sinking down on the ground, unconscious. He smiled evilly and carried the body to the water, where he threw him in and stared at the face which disappeared in the dark water.
