Cost of Freedom (10/??)
Summary: In which Hakuba visits. Prison ! AU
The days seem to blend into one another until Kaito is woken up early on a saturday morning by other prisoners yelling that they’re getting visitors today.
It’s louder than it usually is, more rowdy, and when Kaito sits up, yawning, he wonders why there are more people excited today.
“Apparently,” Shinichi says, having heard him shift from below, “they’re opening the second visiting room today, and double the prisoners are getting guests.”
Which explains the sheer noise of it all. It’s like words a bouncing off of the walls, getting louder and louder as they echo into the various hallways of C-block. Kaito almost wants to shout at them to be quiet, and to let him think, but he doesn’t exactly want to think at the moment.
He wonders how the day will go - Hakuba had said over the phone that he would be there on the next visiting day, would get his father to sort out the details, since it’s a police issue and he’s going to be the leading consultant on it. Kaito doesn’t care how the detective figures it out, as long as he shows up.
