If L received the Death Note...

L blinked slowly. "Shinigami, you say."

Ryuuku nodded, his round eyes swiveling to the side.

"And this," L continued, picking up the Death Note, "is yours?"

"Was," Ryuuku corrected.

"Are there more shinigami? And are they also as careless with their possessions?"

Ryuuku just shrugged.

"You understand, if there were more of these about, it would be a considerable headache. How would you solve a murder committed by a Death Note? It goes against the very axioms of detection."

"Have you used it yet?" Ryuuku asked.

L paused. "I am an agent of justice," he said gently, opening the note.


Death Note belongs to Obata Takeshi and Ooba Tsugumi.
