"Keep walking, Kana." Ken whispered on her ear as she also realized that the man who just passed by them seemed to be not an ordinary man. Her instinct as an assassin was able to tell it as soon as he was within her reach, but she knew that in assassination, that distance was already too late.

If the man was as skilled as the higher Numbers, she would have been breathing her last now.

Her heart almost leapt out of her chest when she felt Ken's hand on her waist, just at the moment that the man was close enough to her, and as she expected, he said something that only the two of them could hear…and understand.

"We will come and get you…soon, " were the man's words.

Kana stiffened, but when she heard Ken's words on her ear, she continued walking. Ken kept his hand on her waist.

If it wasn't because of the man, she would have felt exhilarated for this intimate gesture, but she knew that Ken acted out of his habit to protect her. And that is to keep her close to him as possible.

When they have walked for about 5 minutes continuously, she felt Ken's hand on her hand. Before she realized what he was about to do, he already pulled her to one corner, it was a narrow alley in between two buildings.

She felt her back on the wall, while Ken was in front of her, his other hand was on the wall just beneath her head, while the other one was inside his pocket. When she looked up at him, she saw a worried look on his face.

"Ken, " she was surprised when her voice trembled and she sounded scared.

"Let's stay here for a while. You were trembling. Were you so scared?"

No wonder, Ken did what he thought was the way to calm her down.

She, scared?

For the first time, she became scared too much that she found her knees weak and her hands trembling. The man's effect was such that even her, as a Shadow, felt this much fright just at the mere presence of him. The man has a dark aura around him that she almost cowered in fear.

It was colder, deadlier, and bloodier than even Ken's aura as an assassin.

But she has not trained herself just to be as weak as this.

So with all the willpower within her, she slapped both of her cheeks with her palms, much to Ken's surprise.

"Ouch!" she said.

"Stupid!" Ken exclaimed softly, and pinched her chin so that her eyes met his. He noticed the reddish mark that she left on her cheeks.

'Why did you hurt yourself?'

Kana smiled at him, already feeling refreshed from the sharp pain that she felt from the slap. She could not allow herself to be intimidated by the presence of that man.

"I'm ok now, Ken." She said afterwards.

He shook his head, and slightly brushed his fingers on her cheeks. 'What a woman.'

He gave her a faint smile, and let her face go. She then did not expect that he would hold her hand and pull her outside the alley.


"Don't worry. I am here for you." He said, looking back at her stunned expression.

They walked while Ken was holding

ost finished eating but she realized that she wants to stay close to him. So, she finished the remaining of her food in haste, and returned all the trash on the bin at the kitchen. She was about to go back to him when she thought of something good.

She poured fresh milk on two mugs and put them on the microwave. After 45 seconds, she took them out. With a warm smile on her lips, she returned to where Ken was seated.

"Care for a glass of milk?" She offered, and he turned to her.

She noticed a flicker of emotion on his eyes, but he let out a faint smile and took the mug that she was offering.

"Thanks, " he said.

She sat beside him, and watched with him. He was watching an old Japanese movie about samurai. She could tell that he was so engrossed with the movie. However, Kana was also engrossed, but she was engrossed with him.

The silence between them made her heart at ease.

'I wish we could remain like this forever', she thought.

She silently watched him from the corner of her eyes while drinking her milk. Ken was occasionally drinking his milk as well, while keeping his attention focused on the movie. Then, they suddenly heard a loud sound coming from her bedroom. As if something was broken.

Ken turned the TV off in an instant and held her close to him. With careful and soundless steps, they walked towards her bedroom. He was firmly holding her hand, and her heart began to beat faster.

He motioned for her to stay behind him as he gently pushed open the door. They could not feel anybody's presence at all. So they both entered the room.

"Ken, " she called out his name and pointed at the broken glass window.

Seems like somebody threw something on the window. They looked around, and Ken finally found rock wrapped in a paper. With a frown on his forehead, he took it and unwrapped the rock. There was a note on the paper.

'We will get you soon.'

Kana felt terrified. The note was written in red, it was painted in blood.
