Chapter 2: Some nice talks
That same evening, after flying to Okinawa and taking a taxi to their
final destination, the four teenagers, with their respective bags
full of summer clothes, found themselves looking at the Manza Beach
"Wow, Kudô!! You really did it this time!!" Said Heiji, eyes still
looking at the nine-storie building in front of them.
"Yeah " Kazuha was quite speechless. She expected no less from Kudô
Shinichi, but certainly not that much! She would really enjoy this
vacation, she told to herself.
And they would have beeen looking at the building for all the
evening, hadn't Shinichi told them to move on. "Hey, do you want to
sleep outside or what? We have to check in, so let's have a look at
the hotel later." At that, they finally took their bags and went into
the building, curious about how the rooms would be like. Even Ran
didn't know that, so she only walked on beside Shinichi, wanting to
know what he had for them.
As soon as they got in, a nice receptionist, who smiled and gave them
a warm welcome, greeted them.
"Good evening, and welcome to Manza Beach Hotel! Did you make a
reservation?" She asked, permanent smile always on her face.
"Good evening. Yes, I have two reservations for Kudô*" Shinichi told
"Kudô? Sure. Just wait a minute, please" She said while typing at the
reception computer. "Here it is. Rooms 923 and 925, am I correct?"
She smiled at him, already knowing why he had explicitly asked for
Shinichi smiled back at her. "That's it, thank you very much". He
picked up the cardkeys of the said rooms, and turned to the
others. "So, how about we go to the rooms and unpack? The bags feel
quite heavy, and I really am tired"
Ran's face saddened a little when he said that. `He really needs the
rest now ' At that moment, Shinichi turned to look at her, and seeing
her face, tapped her head.
Smiling, he told her "Don't worry, I'm fine. It's over now". At that,
Ran could only smile back. But then, she could feel some
uncomfortable glances at her. Knowing where they came from (namely
her dear Osaka friends, who were now smiling evilly to themselves),
she picked up her bag. "Ok, let's go!!".
"Shinichi, you didn't tell me we'd be staying in THESE rooms!!"
Ran's exclamation was justified. Shinichi, being who he is, had to
pick the hotel suites. They were nearly as big as her own house! Of
course, Shinichi only put on his already famous Shinichi Smile ®.
"And what did you expect, a lousy double room on the third floor? If
I say vacation, it's really vacation!! We have a whole week for us in
these rooms, and we're going to enjoy it!"
"Oh, I suppose I can't complain then" Ran said. And she turned to
Kazuha "Ne, Kazuha-chan, let's go unpack and put on our swimsuits!
The pbeach looks great from here, don't you think so?"
"Yeah, let's go!! Um, see you in the pool, ok?" Kazuha told Shinichi
and Heiji. When the two girls left to their room, Heiji couldn't wait
"So, it finally ended, didn't it?"
"Yeah finally" Shinichi answered. "And I still didn't get to thank
you and Tôyama. Really, I wouldn't be alive if it weren't for you"
At that, Heiji smiled. "Come on, the Osaka branch of the organisation
wasn't that strong after all. Once you finally took care of the Tôkyô
branch, it all came down quite easily"
"Well, as long as we're allright, I suppose I can't complain". He
stopped for a second, his face turning serious. "Is Kazuha really ok?"
"Yeah, don't worry about her. It seems Ran had told her about her
suspicions, because when I told her she wasn't that surprised, and
she really wanted to help. She understood why you had to hide your
true identity, so she's not angry."
"I'm happy to hear that." Shinichi smiled.
And, what about that Haibara girl? She didn't want to come here with
us?" Heiji asked, curious about her.
"Well, she said she would be busy these days, with the drug
investigation still going on. And she said a little girl wouldn't fit
with four teenagers"
"So she stayed small after all?" He still asked, although he figured
what the answer would be.
Shinchi sadly smiled. "Yeah. She said it would be her way of paying
for all the deaths she caused. I suppose it really is the best for
"If she says so " Heiji finally said, and began changing into his
swimsuit. "Hey, wanna bet what the girls will wear? I say brown
bikini for Kazuha and red and white for Ran!"
"Ha, you failed this time. Ran's is black and white"
Heiji facefaulted at that. "Oh? And how are you so sure about that?"
"Mainly because it's the one she put in her bag this morning"
Shinichi grinned. A thud could be heard as Heiji dropped his clothes.
"I should have known. You finally did it!!!"
"Uuaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!! I'm so happy for you, Ran-chan!!!!!!!!"
Kazuha's cry could be head from the third floor. She was really
enjoying their talk, now.
"Kazuha-chan! The rest of the people here aren't interested in our
talk, you know?" Ran was madly blushing at the glances she received
from other tourists. "Yes, we're together now. Enough?".
Of course, it WASN'T enough for Kazuha. "No way! I want details. You
It was certainly Ran's Blushing Day. "Y-Yeah " And she blushed even
more, which made Kazuha even more curious.
"Well, and "
"Come on, Ran-chan!!"
"Well, we you know this and that and "
Kazuha nearly drowned when she finally realized what her friend was
trying to say. "Oh."
"You really don't want to be in the same room?" As the were heading
to the beach, Heiji asked for the hundreth time, The Teasing Look not
leaving his face. Shinichi was kinda tired by then.
"Well, you know I'd love to, but I only asked for two rooms, so you
can guess who will have to sleep together then" Shinichi returned the
teasing. As hoped, Heiji shut his mouth, and didn't open it until
they met the girls.
"Heh!! I knew it, Brown bikini!!
"Of course you would know, wouldn't you?" Now, he realized, would be
Shinichi's turn to tease him to no end.
From the water, Ran greeted them "Hey, come here! The water is really
"You see? Black and white bikini, I told you" Shinichi told Heiji,
with, you guessed, his Shinichi Smile ® Then he turned to Ran "Hey,
the water is really nice, you know"
"Hm, you didn't believe me? Of course it is, water is warmer in the
evening" She replied, without a really angry face though. Until she
was splashed. "Hey!!!!"
Heiji and Kazuha could only sigh at the drowning game the couple had
begun to play.
"Should we leave them alone?"
Ran managed to get her head out of the water "No *glub* wait *glub*
a moment!!" (Take glubs as Shinichi making her drink some nice salty
"Oh crap" Kazuha finally said.
Well, that's all for now (I'm not home and have little time left, so
I'll send this as a chapter and maybe make it a bit longer later
