[CLOSED] Successor

Philip knew her footsteps. Even with the fact that they sounded a little lighter this time, they were definitely Shroud’s. She came in from the back of the garage as he’d expect of her. He rose from his stool with a small smile, walking to the edge of the grates to greet her and then froze.

The woman that stepped into the light had to be his mother. It was her clothes, her posture, the same energy she’d always radiated. But the woman before him was not masked, not disfigured, not broken. The smile she gave him was a little fearful, as if she expected him to turn her away.

"Hello, Raito."

"I’m not sure who named him.. I was much younger when my family got him for me. My sister might have…" Philip wondered about that and made a note to himself to ask one of his family next time he saw them. He walked over to the bird cage, opening it and picking up the little sparrow. "She made a nest in one of the vents down in the garage and got inside. Mick went after her and broke her wing, so my partner and I fixed her up and are taking care of her." He chuckled a bit. "Shoutarou said we can only keep her until she’s healed, but I think he might be even more attached to her than I am."

Yukie walked over to the cage after Philip to take a closer look at the bird. “She’s very pretty. I can see why you would want to keep her.” She smiled. “Your partner sounds like a big softie, underneath whatever front he puts up.” Her smile grew a little sad. “I’m sure that’s why Nii-san liked him enough to send me your way.”

Philip smiled, stroking the sparrow’s head as she chirped at him. He put her back into the cage and closed it. “Shoutarou likes to pretend he’s tough and cool and doesn’t feel anything, but he’s got a big heart. He cares so much about people and this city, and that’s why he’s so good at what he does.” He looked over at Yukie as her tone dropped slightly. This was hard. He wasn’t sure how much he should pretend to know or not know.

"Can I get you a cup of coffee?" He moved across to the small kitchen to start preparing it anyway and looked back at her. "Your brother knew bout our agency? …What was he like?" Of course, Philip knew already… But given the circumstances, he decided it was best to approach the subject carefully.

"He’s working on a few cases right now, so he’s been out most of the day. Chief’s been staying home too, so It’s mostly just me until evening." Philip smiled and walked over to the desk, scooping up his cat. "This is Mick." He scratches his head before putting him down next to Kinou. Mick watched the other cat cautiously, leaning forward to sniff before letting out a low meow, then sat and watched his face. Philip gestured to the birdcage. "And that’s Margalo."

"Mick?" Yukie smiled. "What a handsome name for a handsome cat." Kinou mewed back and padded forward, circling around the other cat curiously before sitting in front of him and washing her paw. Yukie looked at the bird. "What made you decide to get a bird?"

Philip set the book aside and smiled a little. “My name is Philip. It’s nice to meet you both.” He nodded politely and extended a hand. “My partner is out right now…” Which was probably for the best, as Philip could see Shoutarou complaining about another cat in the office. Mick lifted his head, watching the other cat curiously, flicking his tail back and forth.

Yukie shifted Kinou to one arm as she held out the other hand to take Philip’s offered one. “It’s nice to meet you too, Philip. I’m sorry we missed your partner.” She tilted her head around him to look at Mick. “And who is that handsome young man?” Kinou meowed curiously and squirmed out of Yukie’s arms and padded over to the desk to stare up at Mick.

"Welcome to the Narumi Detective Age—" Philip looked up from the book he’d been reading and stopped short.  "…Agency." he finished nodding politely. …Sudo Yukie? What was she doing here? Across the room, Mick was laying on Shoutarou’s desk, eyeing the little sparrow that was hopping around the birdcage beside the bed.

Yukie looked around the office, holding Kinou in her arms. Her eyes fell on the other person, and she almost felt like she should know him. “Hello. I’m Sudo Yukie, and this is Kinou.” She held out the cat in her arms. “I just wanted to see what kind of people Nii-san recommended were.” She spotted the other cat, but resisted the temptation to go over and pet him.

Philip set the book aside and smiled a little. “My name is Philip. It’s nice to meet you both.” He nodded politely and extended a hand. “My partner is out right now…” Which was probably for the best, as Philip could see Shoutarou complaining about another cat in the office.

Philip looked up as the door to the office opened, his cat letting out a bothered meow and jumping down form his lap to find someplace quieter to sleep. Philip set his book aside and rose from the stool. “Hello. Are you here to ask about a case?”

"He’s staying down there the rest of today at least." Philip glanced over to the door that lead downstairs. "That’s what he gets for misbehaving." He turned back to Shoutarou. "Do you want me to come with you?"

Shoutarou glanced up at Philip. “Hm? Oh…” He looked down at his wallet, pocketed it, then walked around to the table to check on Margalo. “You can if you want to. She might be fine on her own.” The little bird had fallen asleep and he reached out to run his finger over her head gently. He was almost starting to become fond of her.

"it would be difficult to get the cage back on your own wouldn’t it?" Philip tilted his head slightly, following Shoutarou to the table. He smiled at the sight of the sparrow asleep in the little "nest". The poor thing must have been so worn out after all of the excitement. "Mick can’t get to her from downstairs, and she has food and water. She should be okay for a an hour or so on her own."

"So do people." Philip’s took the slightly accusatory tone now. For a long time in the beginning, their relationship had centered around Shoutarou giving him food and then leaving him to his own devices until he needed information. Philip sighed and leaned against the back of the chair. "I know she’s not a toy. You don’t need to lecture me."

Shoutarou looked away. “I know better now…” he muttered, a little hurt that Philip would think him heartless. He just didn’t know how to tend for another entire person at the time and it wasn’t like Philip was exactly agreeable when they first came back together. “Fine. I’ll go get a cage for her now. I’m sure Mick won’t stay in that basement forever.”

"He’s staying down there the rest of today at least." Philip glanced over to the door that lead downstairs. "That’s what he gets for misbehaving." He turned back to Shoutarou. "Do you want me to come with you?"
