- Well, I sent it two days ago, but I'm not sure if you received it, so... here it goes again ^__^----------------------------------------Hi again!! Another chapter up, kinda soon ^__^. And I know, its kinda huppy waffy fluffy ^^U
First of all, thank you very much for the nice reviews!! I really wasnt expecting them, but
Im glad you liked my story!! And also for the advice you gave me ^__^ Dont worry for all
the questions you may have, theyll be answered in the right moment.
And as for the grammar errors, please feel free to correct me when you see a mistake, English
is not my first language, and I really want to improve it.
Well, enough said for now, lets go into action!!
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 Hotel entrance.
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, hadnt Shinichi told them
to move on. Hey, do you want to sleep outside or what? We have to check in, so lets 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 didnt 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 her.
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 those rooms.
Shinichi smiled back at her. Thats 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
Rans 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 Dont worry, Im fine. Its 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, lets go!!.
Shinichi, you didnt tell me wed be staying in THESE rooms!!
Rans 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, its really
vacation!! We have a whole week for us in these rooms, and were going to enjoy it!
Oh, I suppose I cant complain then Ran said. And she turned to Kazuha Ne, Kazuha-chan, lets go
unpack and put on our swimsuits! The pbeach looks great from here, dont you think so?
Yeah, lets go!! Um, see you in the pool, ok? Kazuha told Shinichi and Heiji. When the two girls
left to their room, Heiji couldnt wait anymore.
So, it finally ended, didnt it?
Yeah finally Shinichi answered. And I still didnt get to thank you and Tôyama. Really, I wouldnt
be alive if it werent for you
At that, Heiji smiled. Come on, the Osaka branch of the organisation wasnt that strong after all.
Once you finally took care of the Tôkyô branch, it all came down quite easily
Well, as long as were allright, I suppose I cant complain. He stopped for a second, his face turning
serious. Is Kazuha really ok?
Yeah, dont worry about her. It seems Ran had told her about her suspicions, because when I told her
she wasnt that surprised, and she really wanted to help. She understood why you had to hide your true
identity, so shes not angry.
Im happy to hear that. Shinichi smiled.
And, what about that Haibara girl? She didnt 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 wouldnt 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 her.
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. Rans is black and white
Heiji facefaulted at that. Oh? And how are you so sure about that?
Mainly because its 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!!!! Im so happy for you, Ran-chan!!!!!!!! Kazuhas cry could be head from the
third floor. She was really enjoying their talk, now.
Kazuha-chan! The rest of the people here arent interested in our talk, you know? Ran was madly blushing
at the glances she received from other tourists. Yes, were together now. Enough?.
Of course, it WASNT enough for Kazuha. No way! I want details. You already kissed?
It was certainly Rans Blushing Day. Y-Yeah And she blushed even more, which made Kazuha even more curious.
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 dont 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 Id 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 didnt open it until
they met the girls.
Heh!! I knew it, Brown bikini!!
Of course you would know, wouldnt you? Now, he realized, would be Shinichis turn to tease him to no end.
From the water, Ran greeted them Hey, come here! The water is really nice!
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 didnt 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 water).
We definitely should Kazuha finally said, letting out a defeated sigh.
* Im sure this sentence is an insult to English grammar, someone please tell me how it should be written T_T
Well, thats all for now (Im not home and have little time left, so Ill send this as a chapter and maybe
make it a bit longer later ^__^). Hope you all liked it!!
Of course, c&c appreciated ^__^ always trying to improve!!
And please, tell me of any grammar mistakes, Ill feel really happy to correct them.
