Kaito Kid, people knew him as a thief, well technically he was...but he had his reasons, he had his reasons for being what he is, but there's a story behind the thief few people know. Only Kaitou himself and a few other possible others he trusted knew of his illusion master by his side, now a rather tall Zoroark grinned as wide as the KID himself, as he fed the black human-like creature a Pokepuff, that seemed like chocolate with frosting and a little chocolate piece on top.
KID patted the strange Pokemon's head as he started to explain. "It was on an island, I was doing my usual thing, you know, stealing, the Sable Eye diamond, a rare, but strange statue...ok...It was CALLED a statue, but it was...alive...I can't explain it, that heist...Well...Maybe I should explain first..." He said to no one with a hesitation.
A few years back:
"The Sablenite Diamond was a very rare and strange diamond one has ever seen..." That's what the sign read on top of the large building this thief remembered well, "It's Ruby eyes burrowed into your soul." Another note from a certain newspaper. And it would be in Japan for one day only.
Kaito KID read the paper and blinked quickly, a strange diamond, maybe it was the one he was finally searching for, Sablenite seemed promising. The calling card was sent, upsetting mostly everyone except for the owner of the diamond. On the TV the owner gave a half smile, "Well, he will get a bit of a surprise, now won't he." But the interview ended quickly.
The KID wondered about what methods he would take to steal it. He smirked a bit to himself, knowing the idea, little did he knew how strange stealing this prized gem would turn out for him.
He made a plan of action finally and on the night of the theft he arrived in the forest, a small little girl watched him, she seemed different for being in Japan, and looked like she belonged in America with her long dirty blonde hair, and sparkling cerulean blue eyes that caught his interest as she pointed to a small path someone had dug. KID was shocked a young girl would help him, but without a word he bid the girl a fond farewell as he made his way into the building.
Inside the building, many people stood staring at the strange statue holding a giant ruby. He smiled to himself, noting escape routes and anything else that could be used. Every time he seemed to glance over, the statue had seemingly moved, but the company who discovered it was Labrelum, which was strangely known for its robots in London.
Then a little boy caught his eye, his costume well known to the thief, he'd know that bow tie anywhere honestly. Would it cause problems, possibly not, that little girl outside didn't look like the young girl he had met several times, the one from the Detective Bros, that he had used from time to time to help him pilfer the gems. A teenager with a ponytail held a seemingly purple spotted cat and stood next to the Little Detective's older teenage friend, Ran Mouri, as the short haired blonde girl tried to listen in on the conversation between the two girls, Ran petting the purple cat that seemed to hold his attention.
"Isn't that cat cute!?" The brat said to the thief, he wondered if he could see through his gentlemanly disguise.
In a totally different voice than his own, he spoke the truth, "I never seen a purple cat. I'm intrigued."
"The cat's quite nice, but she seems to be searching for someone..." The boy said with a smirk and KID realized the boy was doing the exact same thing as the strange cat in the brunette's arms. He wondered if he realized the boy had actually found its prey, but excused himself to get a closer look.
In a few minutes, the lights would all go out from one of the fuse boxes he had found and rigged on an earlier mission....but would the boy...he then realized Conan had left, he had walked away with the small voiceless child he had seen outside earlier. She didn't help him, since he had discovered the same path on an earlier visit, but it was almost as if the child had read his mind that he needed the little detective gone, and strangely enough, she was dragging Conan to a different room.
He didn't like a lot of help from fans, but he reminded himself silently to thank the little girl again. KID trained his head to the diamond, and noticed the purple cat had disappeared. He felt strange though, like the little girl was being watched by someone or something...
The two brunettes and Sonoko seemed to look worried and went off to find Conan and the odd cat.
The lights had shut off according to plan, and the magic show was about to begin as soon as the trio reached the exit, the ponytailed girl's eyes watched the stage and called for Conan and Purr.
The heist started with the normal "Ladies and Gentlemen!" He announced everything he would do, knowing that would only through Nakamori and the other police officers, probably the fat inspector, and the odd skinny one, that seemed to have a good head on his shoulders. He was sure there were more, but they seemed the most confident out of the incompetent officers that would soon be chasing shadows.
The Sablenite caught his eye and he went for it, a male's voice from the crowd yelled out "Brick Break" and before he knew it a purple fist crashed down on his body.
The thief staggered confused from the attack, and heard the words again, he closed his eyes, and felt he was pushed out of the way by the child who took the attack, but at the feet of the Sableye ( statue? ), it wasn't a child that lay on the ground, but a little black fox, KID got up and ran to help as another attack was yelled, he pulled out the card gun and shot the pokemon/statue thing that attacked him and the child or fox. The rope wrapped around the ghost pokemon and he fell to the ground.
KID ran out the door with the Sablenite, and the huge ruby seemed to shrink. Confused, he carried the black fox out of the room quietly, but something felt strange, were they being watched...
The Purrloin jumped at the boy and he was able to take off running, when they got to a corner, Conan walked out, nodding to his shoe. The cat and the boy's doors were the only escape, he used his gun and hit an air vent in the ceiling and in a puff of smoke disappeared.
KID was able to escape with the fox easily, but the cat and boy were still on his tail. "They didn't fall for it, did they foxy?" He asked quickly, knowing he wouldn't receive an answer. She began to Purr, but she didn't seem too lively as he reached a back door, a soccer ball nearly missed his head however. "...Ah, welcome."
The black cat hissed, confusing him quite a bit again. Then it seemed to talk for its 'meow'.
"Do you two know each other?" He could swear the fox nodded. "Well, it seems our time here has come to a close, sorry you couldn't stop me..." Another soccer ball came flying at him, but he had used the card game as an escape rope and holding the fox in his arms, he disappeared to the roof. He checked the gem using the moonlight, but the diamond showed it wasn't the one.
Something else however was next to the diamond, a container, "Super Potion" the thief said to himself, not understanding the bottle. The black fox laid her tail on it. "Well, it can't hurt..." He sprayed the fox and next thing he was gliding in the air, another soccer ball heading for the glider, but he easily avoided it. The fox gave a hiss when she opened her eyes and saw they were flying, Kaito landed the glider when they arrived closer, he pet the little fox on the head, and offered an apology.
Once on the ground, the fox stood up, and before his eyes changed back into the little blonde haired girl. She pointed to a back road, and KID followed, they heard Conan and a familiar hiss. KID watched the two from the alleyway. "Both are rather persistent..." He rolled her eyes and Zorua nodded to him, hiding behind his back. "I have to sneak you in with me..." He said quietly. In a manner of seconds, the little fox jumped on his head and used an illusion to become his hat. "Now they won't suspect a thing. We'll return this thing tomorrow..." He pocketed the mega stone. "Now we should go home...my friend."
About a year later, the little fox furball lay on his computer desk as he read about the Infinity Stone, a rare diamond kept in a vault for many years. "Seems promising...Are you looking forward to the next heist." He patted the fox's head. The first few heists, he had left the little fox at home, but after another quick save by the little girl, pointing the way out and learning to use her helpful illusions, she almost always helped him out during his thefts. Sometimes that Purrloin would stalk the scent of the little fox, the same ponytailed brunette girl, sometimes even a tall man would accompany the two of them....But that black cat would always try to cause trouble, and try to hurt his fox friend, he wouldn't allow it.
Sharing a nod, the Fuzzball jumped on his head and curled up, he placed his hat over the fuzzball with a grin. "Just promise you'll be careful, friend." She nodded and off they went. She was used to Kaitou's tricks, and always enjoyed tricking Aoko or Hakuba, her illusion became so much better than before and she was now as much a master as Kaito himself. "So Fuzzy, you ready to go." Her form turned into the little girl and she took his hand with a nod.
"We're there for each other no matter what." He fist pumped the girl, and she smiled. The building was tall, he was sure at one point Conan had jumped off of it. In case the need would arise, he planned for that. He checked his stuff, and she was ready too, she had planned to distract Conan, though he did worry about that black cat that stalked this fox, he knew she would be ok. She was strong and he learned all about her, she could use several moves, but her favorites consisted of Nasty Plot, agility, fake tears and extrasensory, foul play and snatch were also fun to help with, several uproars started because of the lost and scared child.
This evening seemed different however, it was going too easy, Nakamori came down with a cold, so a random officer stood guard, he had strange dark eyes. Something seemed off about him, Conan too had come down with a cold, and Ran wasn't there, since she was probably taking care of the brat, the brunette was holding the black cat, yet the Purrloin seemed to be asleep, and she was petting it. The blonde Sonoko stood by her, talking away, but she seemed to be in another world as the older girl droned on and on about well everything.
The lights would trigger any second now. But an announcement came over the loud speaker, "Good evening," the voice started, "This is a robbery and you are all hostages..." The police officers stripped off their uniforms to reveal black outfits, with guns. The little girl had walked up to an officer right before this had happened, readying to use torment, instead she was grabbed, and a gun was pulled up to her head.
The brunette's black cat jumped out of her arms and ran to help the child pokemon, but when the ponytailed girl called to her cat, another man with a gun grabbed her by the arm. Another one came around to grab Sonoko too and dragged them to where Zorua was being held by the third man.
KID watched the scene, he sprung into action in his dark clothes, the white thief suit not yet needed, due to causing a scene, and he had to rescue them, the Purrloin looked up to him and nodded, he could understand, and wordlessly said he'll cause the diversion, and after he makes his move to get the three girls out of the way.
He quickly sprung into action, not wanting to make it worse than it already was, he moved with the shadows closer to the hostages, he was going to save them and everyone if he possibly could, he shot the card gun at the one holding Zorua, and while the others went to check them out, she ran towards the Purrloin and nodded, ready to help, as the card gun shot the man holding the brunette girl, she too ran torwards the pokemon, knowing Sonoko, she stayed waiting, KID shot the third card out as he was clocked on the head by one of the men in black, he went down, and the brunette grabbed Sonoko and several of the people and escaped out a small door during the commotion.
A gun was pointed at KID's head and the leader grinned, as they dragged him to the center, "Any more heroes!?" He kicked the boy, who was out cold, "We'll show you what happens to heroes..." He put the gun up to his head, suddenly the little Zorua girl ran at the man with a gun and bit him, the man cradled his arm and shot the little girl as she whimpered in pain and turned back into a little fox, bleeding and dying on the ground. "H-Haha!" The man laughed at the two heroes who would die together.
The fox's body started to glow white, she whimpered a bit from the pain of the gun shot, but suddenly, all went black, and when she opened her eyes, she was no longer a little girl, she stood on her new two feet and stretched her tall body, she walked over to the man about to shoot the thief and shot off a very powerful night daze. The leader had disappeared after a shadow claw from the giant fox, several of the robbers tried to shoot her, but she stood her ground, standing over KID, not letting them near her, shielding him, and fighting the thieves, single handedly, she taunted them and knocked them all out, using thief to steal the diamond back, and hiding it on KID, so he would be ok, and able to check it. As soon as they were dealt with, she changed into an older blonde and carried the thief to the roof, trying to make sure he was alright.
She licked her friend as he opened his eyes, seeing her true form, he rubbed his head with a groan. "What happened?" He asked. "Fuzzball, is that you!?" His hand reached up to caress the Zoroark's face. "You're hurt..." He saw the bullet where her paw was now a large hand. "We'll take care of you." He reached into his pocket to find the diamond, he blinked. "Thank you." He lifted the diamond up to the moonlight, but no, it was still not the one. "You could have been hurt." He rubbed her head. "We should make sure everyone is safe then head home..."
The Zoroark nodded, changing back into the blonde child and taking his hand, squeezing it. "We'll get you fixed up, Fuzz, mom can help if I can't get the bullet out myself. You saved my life, you are really my best friend."
The girl tried to repeat the sounds he made, mewing out the word "friend" as audible as possible.
Suddenly the door to the roof burst open and two brunettes and the short hair blonde burst through and the black cat jumped into the arms of Fuzzball and started licking her wounds, Kaitou noticed she seemed very worried and also relieved that Zoroark was safe. Aside from the happy reunion, he noticed Aoko seemingly yelling at him.
"What did you think you were doing, you could have been killed! It's a miracle you're even alive right now." She seemed to go on and on. Though the other brunette and the blonde gave each other a quick smirk and in thanks kissed both his cheeks at the same time, as Aoko yelled about the things he did.
This angered Aoko and she pulled Kaitou closer to her in a hug. "Guh, where's that broom when I need it." She gave Sonoko and the Purrloin's owner a nasty glare, which caused them to giggle.
"Don't worry, we owe him our lives." The other brunette plainly stated, staring up at the sky. "He couldn't have known someone was behind him."
"This baka was going to get himself killed!" She said for at least the fifth or sixth time.
Sonoko laughed, "I can call him my hero..." She went in for another hug, but Aoko pulled her back.
"Don't you dare." Aoko growled.
"I think we need to head home for a bit, we all had a rough night, and there's something I have to help do."
The ponytailed brunette put her hand on the thief's shoulder. "I'm sure I can help." She nodded over to the Purrloin licking the bullet wound on Zoroark. "I know a good nurse...I know you can take care of her..."
"It's fine, we're friends..." He saw the girl smile, which sort of confused him.
"It's nothing, I just have a good friend, that helps the injured, I promise he'll take good care of her and bring her back as soon as she's better." She smiled and the Zoroark nodded.
"But..." He tried to call to her, but both the purple cat, and Fuzzy had left with the brunette. He would have thought it was a dream if it wasn't for Sonoko and Aoko fighting over him.
Kaitou was starting to think he'd never see his friend again, it had been about a week since the theft, and things were just starting to calm down, he had misled the media into forgetting about the little girl, he wasn't sure how, but now it all seemed like it was a dream, maybe he had even convinced himself it was, aside from several bumps and bruises on his body. The purple cat had stopped stalking him since that day, he was starting to even miss that creature.
A ring on the door bell and two teenage girls standing outside the front door, his mother was out, it took him a moment to notice the cat stalking behind the brunette as he answered the door, a very strange man he had possibly seen at some jewel reveals stayed very far away, but watched the two girls like a hawk as they entered the house.
The brunette put her hand on Kaitou's shoulder, "I'm very sorry to tell you..." She looked at the girl, whose blonde hair was dressed up with odd green and pink flowers, "she's no longer a fuzzball..."
Kaitou was hoping the quiet blonde girl was his Fuzzball, and his eyes seemed to grow misty.
"She kinda evolved and doesn't like the name any more." She said with a giggle.
Kaitou frowned and hugged his Fuzzball, frowning, "Is Fuzzy ok though!?"
"She's perfectly healthy. The bullet was in her right paw and was quickly removed by an expert nurse from one of the centers, though he..." She nodded to the man outside, "was a bit annoyed he wasn't able to do it."
The Zoroark nuzzled her friend as soon as she heard her name she was given. She gave him a happy lick, and transformed into her normal giant fox self. She wrapped her friend in a hug.
"See she is my Fuzzball!" He smirked.
"Try finding a Zorua that wants that name." He patted his and Kay smirked. "Touché."
"We can change it. If it bothers her." He couldn't help, but think this girl somehow understood the language that his friend spoke, but preferred to remain quiet about it.
"I'm pretty sure her no longer being called Fuzzball would make her sad, she seems to really like the name." She explained. "You two should take it easy for awhile, have you been doing any better."
"Yeah, I'm much better..." He lied, feeling some pains where he was hit in the head. Zoroark touched his head, almost if they shared the same thought. "We'll feel better now, knowing Fuzzy is safe."
"She's really smart and she missed you a lot. You better take good care of her..." The brunette offered the advice. "She is glad she can protect you."
"Can you..." He was cut off quickly.
"We have to get going, we have some more pokefriends we need to take care of back at home." She arose from the chair and gave Fuzzball a final hug, the Purrloin licked her too. "Don't worry, we'll see you guys again. Just be careful during your next one...get better first."
He nodded quickly, and now he was sure she wasn't an ordinary girl, he had no bad thoughts that she would let people know his secret anyways, after all, if she wanted, she didn't have to return Fuzzball back ever. He waved as she exited the house with the cat, waving good bye.
"We'll meet again, I'm sure." The male called out, as the two began walking away from the house.
"I'm sure of it!" Kaitou called back to them. Both him and Fuzzy waved, she was back to her child form, but her hair was still done up in flowers. "I'll get back to my job as soon as we're better, you can stay here to stay safe." He suggested.
But the Zoroark shook her head to the right and left, and he understood it as 'No way are you having all the fun.'
