    "Oh. Uh, yeah."

    He closes his phone, then gives an awkward smile to his folks.

    "So...Who were you just on the phone with, son?"

    "Valeria...sounds like a girl's name. A foreign name, though."

    "Heh. Yeah. I was at the Venti Buon Caffe, the one by the school...And she sat down at my table. Because it was crowded. Turns out her family just moved into town today. Well. Her and her mom. Her day works in a bit company, and-"

    Kaito proceeds to tell the whole story to his parents, who mostly listen and smile.

    "I think the party is a great idea. Now, go put your books away, dinner's almost ready."

    "Ok mom."

    "Yes, I'd already worked out that a bat cannot cause an explosion, thank you for the assessment of my intelligence." Henry nonchalantly takes a few steps forward, attempting to block the escape route, then continues. "However, that in no way means that you didn't cause the ex-" Henry listens to the woman, very carefully noting the bloodsoaked woman smirking after being blown up. "Very well, ma'am. However, even if she didn't do it, she is still a witness, so I'm going to have a chat with-" Henry turns back to the girl, "-you."

    Henry glances when the ambulance comes. "Yes, there was an explosion here that injured two people. They're the woman and the unconscious young man over there. No others."

    While the ambulance crew took care of the injured, Henry puts his gaze back on the girl, having kept her in his peripheral vision, and continues. "Now that you've wasted some time with that little rant, and you're not a suspect, mind answering a few questions?"

    Sören continues further into the labyrinth of the school, the pleasant breeze seeming to follow him inwards. After a good few minutes wasted on searching for signs to the principle's office, he finally manages to get en route to his intended destination.

    The dismay he feels upon reaching it and finding it vacant are expressed with the greatest decorum.

    "Oh, **** this."

    He sighs, and turns away from the office, intending to search the school more thoroughly.

You can call a couple friends of yours, too, if you want, our house is pretty big; we have a pool, too, so bring a bathing suit if you feel like swimming."

    Meanwhile, Kaito has finally gotten some time to sit down and make a couple of calls in his room. He didn't have a huge list of possible guests, but there were a couple of people he wanted to call.

    First up was his classmate Nakahiro. Good guy, good taste in books.

    Val makes a victorious pump of her fist and grins. "Hm, I suppose you two don't know where I live, yet, though. Gimme a sec." Pulling her phone away from her ear, she quickly switches to speaker and starts a text to both of her friends with her address. In a matter of seconds, she has it sent, and nods to no one in particular.

    Nakahiro is currently reading a book, containing myths from various parts of the world. Not unusual. He's in a local park, sitting in the shade of a large tree. It's quiet. Not many people nearby. His favorite kind of place. Turning the page, he jumps a little in surprise as his phone rings. Clumsily fumbling it out of his pocket, Nakahiro presses the answer button and lifts it to his ear.

    Val blushes. "That's good to hear. Well, see you later, then!"

    As she hangs up, Val thinks of one more call she could make, though first she brings up a map application to look around... and, then, she finds it. Venti Buon's number.

    Which she promptly calls.

    Kaito then sighed and rolled his eyes.

    "I gotta call that "Emi" girl after we're done. Her parents and mine work together, and they want us to socialize and all. She's not a bad person or anything...Just never clicked, you know? Anyways. Like I said, I'll email you details once I'm done."

    "No problem; if nothing else, we can stand awkwardly in the corner and talk about books while a bunch of girls have a party or something. Oh, and just so I'm sure I reminded you, the pool will be open. Not sure if I'm going to plan on swimming, but you might as well have it in mind. Have a good one, Nakahiro."

    After his friend responds, Kaito will hang up. He takes a moment to start writing an email with the address, date, and time, before stopping as he realizes something.

    He then takes a moment to text Val, asking if there's a timeframe for the party.

    Sora [Graveyard]

    After aimlessly wandering about for a while, Sora stops to think for a second. Then, he notices his surroundings, and groans.

    "Great. Why is it that every time I walk around town, I always somehow end up in the graveyard?"

    After cursing his terrible sense of direction, Sora walks towards the middle of the graveyard, and sits down.

    "Alright, I guess I might as well just wait here for a while... I don't have anything better to do..."

    Michiko


    "Sorry officer, but I do." comes the muffled reply from the helmet-wearing girl, a hidden grin coming to her lips even if it was a little bit sad. Hopefully nobody would question this guy on what had happened too much, they might think he was crazy or something! Nothing seemed to happen, to normal mortals anyway, but for those who could see spirits...

    A tall cube forms itself around the good detective and the paramedics as they prepare to gather up Soshi, the invisible barrier stopping the medics cold in their tracks even as Michiko herself sprints forward towards where her downed subordinate was.

    Keeping just part of her attention on the suit-wearing woman, Michiko quickly pulls Soshi up and stumbles back over towards her sports bike, throwing him over it as she climbs aboard.

    Oops, I almost forgot...

    Even as one hand begins to rev the high-performance engine, the other reaches down to scoop up the baseball bat. It wouldn't do to leave something behind that had her finger-prints on it after all! Though Soshi was in a precarious position on the bike, it didn't stop Michiko from tearing past the cop and paramedics trapped within the barrier and the suited woman. Once out on the street she takes a sharp turn, picking up speed as she aims to take the long route home, to try and lose anyone that might be pursuing her at the time.

    "You too. See you on Saturday, Kaito."

    After hanging up, Nakahiro stretches back against the tree and looks up at the branches above, smiling softly.

    Well. This promises to be interesting.

    He picks his book back up and starts reading again.

    [Alley]

    The suited woman's eyes shoot wide open as Michiko makes her wild escape. She stares her with intense curiosity, while the medics stumble against an invisible object blocking their. "Now isn't she... a handful", the woman chuckles, turning to look at Henry, smiling widely. Clearly, she finds the event hugely amusing.

    "We ought to... keep tabs on those two, hmmm, Detective? Can't let them run about, causing mischief, oh no..."
    She closes her eyes and sighs. She breaths heavily but evenly as the medics are freed from the trap and get to her, preparing to move her on the trolley.

    "I'm sorry sir, but we have to get her to treatment"
    , one of the medics, a tall, young-looking man says. "If you have further questions, we must ask you to spare them untill we're sure her condition is stable."

    [Cemetery]

    "Hey! Kiddo!"
    , a voice asks from behind Sora, while at the same time a wrinkled hand reaches to tug the youth's sleeve. "Got any fire?"

    The ghost of Mori Souta is floating behind Sora, slightly transculent against the evening sun, wearing a memory of the same dirty overalls he had in life - after all the trouble his relatives went through to put him in a suit, even once in his life. Or, well, death.

    He's holding a torn cigarette between his nicotine yellow teeth, for some unfathomable reason. He's entangled in a strong iron chain, which goes around him, around a few headstones behind him, and finally deep to the ground where, presumably, his earthly remains are buried.

    "Was hopin' sumvun'd show up"
    , he mutters wiping his potato-like nose with his free hand. There's a bald spot amidst his grey hair, gleaming in the sun. "Ah ain't got any fire."

    Sora turns and looks at him rather mildly, his hair falling slightly in front of his face as he turns around. His eyes have a strange glint in them, a sort of... hunger. "Sorry, I don't have any fire on me. How would I carry fire exactly? "

    For some reason, he seems rather unperturbed by being spoken to by a ghost.
