“Yeah, yeah Himiko I know. Bye bye Himi.”
The girl on the other end of the phone whined when you took the phone off your ear. You giggled at her childish nature, placing the cellphone back to your ear and leaning back onto your couch. Himiko grinned, you could just tell by the way she snickered, and hummed a celebratory tune, “Can’t you stay for a bit? Don’t you have off from school today?”
It was true, you truly didn’t have college today. That didn’t mean you felt guilty from holding your girlfriend back from whatever her work is though. You leaned back on your couch, sighing when your back hit the cushion before picking up your TV remote and idly switching through the channels until you made it to the news. "Nooo– You go do your work, I don’t want to bother you!“
Himiko mocked your childish ‘no’, proceeding to ramble on and on about a cute kitten she had just seen when she was walking to her workplace. The local forecast droned on about the rain and mugginess of the upcoming days, though something caught your interest when they called for a commercial break.
"Upcoming news; there has been a mass murder of the local yakuza that had been recently rising in power, the League of Villains are the prime suspects.” Pictures flashed onto the screen for a split second; a bluette with a hand over his face, a misty man with glowing yellow eyes, a reptilian man. You couldn’t quite catch the rest, but the tufts of blonde hair in two of the mugshots peaked your interest and made your stomach turn. Why did it worry you so much? You had no clue.
You heard Himiko squeal over the speaker, the sound of rustling clothes telling you she was hugging her friend. You’ve met Jin before; he had a kind soul but a divided mind, he was a bit odd, but everyone has their odd personality quirk. When Himiko released her friend from the hug she placed the phone back to her ear only for you to say, “Tell Jin I said hello, dear.”
Himiko did as told, placing the phone to Jin’s ear and letting him greet you, “Hello [N/N], what’re you doin’? Fuck off and hang up!”
“Pretty good! I’m glad to hear you, Jin, haven’t seen you in a bit!” Jin hummed in response, about to verbally respond but stopping short before he could say his first words. Your girlfriend’s voice, as well as a male’s, murmured something to the split man.
There was silence on their end for a moment before finally his voice was back in the receiver, “Our boss told us there’s nothing to do today, wanna go somewhere, Toga-chan? Toga-chan said we’re going to your house– No she didn’t!”
You giggled at Jin’s failure at keeping the surprise a secret. The sound of him passing the phone back to Himiko made you flinch back, but the news finally flashing back on caught your interest. As the pictures of the suspects flashed back on screen your breath hitched and the phone you once held properly slipped and slapped against your sofa’s cushion. There, on the screen for being part of a massive terrorist organization, was your girlfriend and her best friend.
Once catching the breath that had left your lungs you grabbed the cellphone, murmuring a quick goodbye to Himiko before ending the call and throwing the phone on your coffee table. A harsh crack sounded from it’s screen but you barely cared, shock still overcoming your senses as your eyes flickered back up to the screen.
A hundred people. A hundred people, upcoming yakuza members or not, were killed by a group your girlfriend was in. Surely she didn’t kill anyone. She was dragged into it, that was it. Jin couldn’t have done it either. Perhaps they were forced into it. That was it. But your mind knew better than that. You’ve seen the splatters of red against Himiko’s cardigan, though she also claimed it was paint that never came off. Himiko’s knife collection proved odd and a bit unnerving, but you never payed attention to it.
The doorbell rang and your heart dropped to the floor, already knowing who it was, “[N/N]?! I was worried so I ran here! My friends came as well, just in case. Can you open the door for us, dear?”
