TaT plot 4: The Rescuing!
Len - Maybe a little sad...
justanimitator
[It's another hot summer day and Len is once more moping about indoors. He's taken a break from cleaning (again) to thumb through a book he found. It's not very interesting.

He really misses the library. there were many more books there! Wait, thinking that is wrong, isn't it?

He's so bad at being a good Len...]

Missing the library, Len? [Rin's voice came from a shadowy corner, where one could only just see the outline of her. She'd known Len wouldn't notice her until she announced her presence there; he'd been far too busy being properly depressed recently.

But the entertainment value in watching him mope was wearing thin; after all, Dearest Brother was right where she wanted him, and hiding their darker habits in their own home was becoming rather taxing. The Imitator was no longer needed.
]

You look so disenchanted with our books.

N-- no! That... that'd be... I mean...

You don't sound very sure.

[Len chimed in from a shadow opposite Rin, something...different about his smile. Something...

Genuine.
]

Are you displeased with the home we've provided you?

Do you want to leave? [Rin takes a step forward, now half in the shadow and half in the light, her eyes bright orange; painting an arguably more creepy portrait than she had previously.]

Just like you left your own Rin?

All alone.

Never to be born.

[torn between bewilderment, fear, and guilt]

I-- it's wonderful. I...

[as Rin speaks, Len visibly shrinks in on himself]

N-- no.

[Len follows Rin's example, taking a slow step.]

H'm~ you still don't sound very sure. But I wouldn't put it past you, really.

You never tried very hard to redeem yourself in the first place.

All you've really done is learn a few manners and mope around the house.

It's annoying, truly.

I'm s-- sorry! I'll... I'll stop that! And... and try harder! I promise!

Try, try, try but never do.

Our patience is running thin, little one.

Do you think you can change, Len?

Do you want us to help you change?
To make up for what you didn't do?

[sniffing and nodding very rapidly]

A-- anything!

[It's the dead of night.]

[Miku is walking through the shopping district, appreciating the peace and quiet that comes with closed stores and no one around. There's a lot going on in her head — BRS's crew, Len's disappearance, her lack of personnel. She has no one to trust and no one to rely on. Carefully, she examines her reflection in a mirrored store display.]

[Brood.]

{Miku would not be given long to brood over her problems, as an interruption in the form of a small black feline wearing an orange bow around it's neck appeared; hopping right out of the reflection she had been studying moments ago. And as if that was not a strange enough occurrence on it's own, it seemed that the cat could talk.}

You're the police Miku, right?? The one that knows little LenLen?

[SDFHALSF;;ESAV almost drops her knife on it]

...a cat?

{The cat might have thanked you for not actually dropping a knife on her, were she not so focused on getting someone to help 'little LenLen'.}

I'm a special cat. Are you the right Miku??

Which Len — no, that's not important.

What do you need me for?

They're gonna kill him! The LenLen with one eye and his RinRin.
They're gonna kill little LenLen!

It's way out in the forest, we can't just run! It's faster if I take you through the mirror.

{And with that miniscule explanation, the cat leaps back into the mirror and disappears; but this time leaves the mirror rippling like especially reflective water magically suspended on the side of a building. It's...probably safe to jump through.}

[Considers her options very briefly before deciding screw this, I'm Hatsune Miku it's worth the risk, and leaps through the glass...!]

{Passing through the mirror feels just like walking through any other door; where you're in one room for a moment and in a different one the next. The only difference is that the two locations are miles apart instead of next to one another, and that Miku would be stepping out of a full-body mirror within one of the many rooms of the cannibal twin's mansion in the place of a doorway.

The cat stood waiting for Miku in what appeared to be a storage room for clothes(apparently they had too many outfits to use closets like normal people). The lights were out, but the open door allowed the hallway lights to flood into the room.
}

It's two floors up, I didn't want them to hear us coming. But we gotta hurry because they had him cornered and I don't think he'll last very long!

I understand. [She walks out of the storage room, pausing briefly — her eyes adjusting to the change in lighting.] Has he been here this entire time? They've kept him captive?

[An irritated growl as she looks about.] Where's the — stairs. I see. [And then, practically running towards the stairs at the end of the hall.]

{The cat follows Miku, easily keeping up in this form.} Well, they were really nice at first! They seemed to really like little LenLen, but...

Something happened, I think. He was crying the other day and that's how I knew something was wrong.
