The Challenge

Challenger: Rhina
Series: Detective Conan

Pairing: Shinichi and Ran
Title: Always
Dialogue: "So you thought you could fool me?"

"So you thought you could fool me?"

The detective faced the accused, his blue-eyed gaze direct and penetrating. "Considering all the facts that I have just laid out there is only one conclusion that can be made," he said, advancing on her, his hands clasped behind his back. "There's only one truth, you know that."

A small sigh escaped her mouth and she smiled wryly. "I suppose this is what I get for trying to surprise you."

He halted and a slight expression of consternation appeared on his face. "Oh..." he gathered her hands in a soft, yet secure grasp. "I'm sorry, Ran. It's just... you hadn't said anything so I thought..."

"Shinichi, it's all right! I shouldn't have tried to keep this from a great detective," Ran teased, leaning in to kiss him. "Are you happy?"

Shinichi hugged his wife and then pulled back to lay a hand on her stomach. "And baby makes three," he said softly before kissing her back. "I'm definitely happy, Ran."

"I love you."

"I love you too... always have and always will."
