Chapter Six: Lucyâ€™s Drama:
However, the sweet moment got interrupted by a pounding on the door.
â€œWho is that?â€ Tsuzuki asked, startled.
â€œRihoko has a night class tonight,â€ Anna replied.
â€œHisokaâ€™s at Ju-Cho-oh,â€ Tsuzuki said. They leapt up and hurried to the door. Tsuzuki got out his fuda and Anna got a broom. They crept over to the door and the Shinigami listened closely.
â€œWho is it?â€ he asked.
â€œLucy!â€ a voice slurred on the other side.
Oh!, they thought in distress. Yet, confusion came into Tsuzukiâ€™s mind. What is Lucy doing here at Kimoto Manor? The Shinigami opened the door as he and Anna lowered their weapons. Lucy stood on the other side looking like a cross between Hell and a streetwalker. Tsuzuki looked at her oddly.
â€œWhat are you doing here, Lucy?â€ he asked.
â€œI need a drink!â€ Lucy announced. She walked inside as if it was her own house.
â€œCome right in, why donâ€™t ya?â€ Anna asked sarcastically. She and Tsuzuki followed behind.
â€œSo what you got here?â€ Lucy asked aloud as she looked in the fringe.
â€œWe have a little wine,â€ Anna corrected sternly, â€œBut itâ€™s not mine; itâ€™s my roommateâ€™s. Youâ€™ll have to ask her when she gets home!â€ Lucy stopped listening after â€œwineâ€ as a smile came onto her face when she saw the half-empty bottle.
â€œGood enough!â€ she said. Lucy pulled out the wine and shut the fringe.
Soon, all three of them sat in the living room. Lucy drank her wine in delight. Tsuzuki and Anna watched her nervously. The woman leaned over to the Shinigami.
â€œHow do you we get her out of here?â€ she whispered. Tsuzuki shrugged.
â€œYou tell me,â€ he whispered back. Lucy finished her wine.
â€œAh!â€ she said aloud, â€œThat was great!â€ The slutty Goth looked at her hosts. Tsuzuki blinked at her.
â€œWhy are you here?â€ he asked, â€œHow did you find me?â€ Lucy grinned at him like a Cheshire cat.
â€œI followed you!â€ she bragged.
â€œWhat?â€ the Shinigami asked with a blank look on his face.
â€œI had just come back from a lousy date when I spotted you and Hisoka leaving the morgue. I felt down and wanted to talk to you! So I followed you all the way to Barbieâ€™s house here,â€ the S&M freak explained as a matter of fact. Anna raised an eyebrow at her.
â€œBarbie?â€ she questioned. Lucy nodded.
â€œYeah, you heard me right, Barbie!â€ she said aloud. Anna glared at her crossly.
â€œWhy are you here?â€ Tsuzuki asked Lucy again. The slutty Goth grinned at him.
â€œI want to bitch to somebody,â€ she complained.
â€œAbout what?â€ the Shinigami asked. Lucy sat up on the couch and set down her glass. She drew out another cigarette and put it in her mouth. Lucy drew out her lighter to light it up.
â€œNo, donâ€™t,â€ Anna said quickly. Lucy looked up at her sternly.
â€œAnd why not?â€ she asked.
â€œMy roommate has a child and we have a sixteen-year-old boarder here,â€ the other woman complained. Lucy rolled her eyes and frowned.
â€œFine,â€ she grumbled. Lucy put away her cigarette and looked over at the pair. â€œGet me some beer, then!â€ she commanded.
â€œFine,â€ Anna grumbled. She got up and went into the kitchen. Anything to get rid of her for the night!, she reasoned in her head. Once Anna had gone, Lucy turned to Tsuzuki.
â€œNow, about my date!â€ she said. The Shinigami tried to keep a positive face on the whole time. Something told him she was going to make him listen no matter what.
â€œOkay,â€ Tsuzuki said. â€œWhat happened?â€
â€œYou know that guy at that tattoo parlorâ€™s son I was wild about?â€ Lucy asked.
â€œVaguelyâ€¦â€ he mumbled. The Goth sighed and shook her head.
â€œSlender guy with the short jet black hair, piercing blue eyes, and the lower lip ring; that guy? Ring any bells?â€ she pressed
â€œNot really,â€ the Shinigami said with a slight shrug.
â€œYouâ€™re hopeless,â€ she groaned. A sweat drop formed on Tsuzuki head.
â€œI canâ€™t keep track of your boyfriends?!?â€ he complained.
â€œAnyway,â€ she went on, â€œI finally got him! I seduced him to Neko Slut tonight. After a few drinks, we left to my favorite love hotel, if you know what I mean!â€ Lucy grinned and winked at him. Tsuzuki winced, but kept the discomfort down.
â€œSo what happened?â€ he asked. Lucy frowned at him.
â€œWe got up to the room. I went into the bathroom to change down to my sexy wear, you know?â€ she added to her story.
â€œAnd?â€ Tsuzuki asked.
â€œI get out of the bathroom and the idiot it passed out drunk on the bed! Out cold! Turns out, he got nervous and started drinking up all of the contents of the mini-bar! The nerve of that jackass! The nerve!â€ Lucy complained aloud. Tsuzuki nodded.
â€œYeah, thatâ€™s pretty bad,â€ he said trying to humor her.
â€œAwful! I was horny and wanted to play! The worst part was that it was LIMP! LIMP! FUCKING LIMP!â€ she screamed.
â€œShhh! Not so loud! Yoko-chan and Seita are sleeping!â€ Anna hissed from the kitchen. Lucy calmed down and pushed some hair behind her ear.
â€œAnyway, I tried to wake up sleeping beauty, but to no avail. So, I put him to bed, peed in his open mouth, and left. Then, I wondered around the city some and found you,â€ she summed up. Tsuzuki nodded.
â€œI seeâ€¦â€ he said, nodding. Lucy played with her silver skull necklace.
â€œSuch a shame,â€ she said to no one in particular, â€œHe looked like he could be a tiger in bed. He turned out to be a pussy cat! What a letdown!â€
â€œYeah, I know,â€ Tsuzuki said as he looked for an escape. Lucy put her hand on his knee. The Shinigami looked up startled. She had a hungry look in her eyes. Tsuzuki began to panic.
â€œUhâ€¦â€ he said. â€œWhat are you doing?â€ The slutty Goth grinned at him.
â€œTheyâ€™re all no good!â€ she said. â€œI want someone likeâ€¦ likeâ€¦ you!â€ Tsuzuki raised an eyebrow at her.
â€œIâ€™m going to hope thatâ€™s the alcohol talking,â€ he said.
â€œAwww cone on,â€ Lucy cooed, â€œDonâ€™t be shy Tsuzuki! You know you want it as much as I do!â€
â€œNo, I donâ€™t,â€ Tsuzuki said quickly. Lucy didnâ€™t listen.
â€œThis is going to be so good!â€ she said. The woman leaned in close and tried to kiss Tsuzuki on the lips. The Shinigami hated being left with Lucy after she had a bad date when she was drunk and horny.
However, he was saved when they heard someone clear their throat. Lucy and Tsuzuki quickly looked up. Anna stood in the living room with beer in her hands.
â€œWellâ€¦â€ she said, â€œThis is ratherâ€¦â€ Lucy perked up quickly.
â€œBeer!â€ she cheered. The drunken slutty Goth ran over to Anna and took the beer from her. Lucy drank up until she passed out on the couch. Tsuzuki breathed out relived. Anna herself looked uncertain.
â€œUhâ€¦â€ she said, â€œNow what?â€ A sweat drop formed on Tsuzukiâ€™s head.
â€œI donâ€™t knowâ€¦â€ he mumbled. Both looked at the black-clad hopeless mess sleeping before them.
