A Detective Conan Drabble

Cherry blossoms fall softly to the ground, carpeting the path. Ran treads softly, her eyes downcast. She loves this time of year, so pretty and full of promise, but today it's hard to find the joy. Today is her eighteenth birthday and it's the second one Shinichi has missed.

"Shinichi, where are you?"

Footsteps hurry through the blossoms. Hands touch her shoulders, gently turning her.

"Ran, I'm here."

Astonished she stares, trembling fingers reaching out to touch him. "Am I dreaming?"

He hugs her tight.

"It isn't a dream, I'm back for good, Ran."

And joy explodes in her heart.
