10.1K 428 216

At three thirty, the hitman perked up when a shadow slid through the open window. He held his breath when fierce honey orbs gazed at him, they seemed almost like those of a wild animal ready to strike.

Within seconds Reborn pulled out his Leon gun and aimed it at the intruder, only to curse when Leon suddenly shifted back into a chameleon.

The creature stepped closer towards the hitman so that the moon illuminated it. He let out a sigh of relief when he saw familiar spiky brown hair and honey orbs that now seemed harmless.

'I didn't recognize him at all.... I didn't even sense him until he came through the window....'

"Where have you been Tsuna?"

The hitman questioned, slightly irked that the brunette had startled him, not that he would ever admit that out front.


Tsuna suddenly crumpled onto his bed and fell asleep, leaving the hitman to stare at the teen in confusion.

'Did he pass out from not eating supper and not having enough rest?....'

The hitman shook is head and sighed, once again wishing that he had refused Nono's request. He took a quick glance at the boy to see that he had some blood speckled across his shirt.

'His injuries didn't open......'

Reborn cleared away his thoughts and decided to fall asleep in his hammock, figuring that it was better to think while fully rested instead of confused and tired.


The hitman was awakened by the sound of a the brunette's bed creaking, he looked over to see the honey eyed teen sitting up on the bed, staring blankly into space.

Reborn noted that the boy's injures were completely healed without any mark left upon his skin as proof that he had been picked on.

However despite the lack of injuries, the boy's completion was a sickly shade of white.

"Oi Tsuna"

Reborn tilted his fedora up when he received no response from the teen, and it didn't seem as if he was just simply ignored either.

Concerned, the hitman hopped out of his hammock and stood in front of the honey eyed teen, he was staring into space, as if in some kind of trance.

"Oi Tsuna, listen to me when I'm speaking"

Again, he received no response from the teen who seemed to be within his own little world.

'This isn't normal..... Did he get attacked last night by a mist flame user?....'

The hitman snapped out of his thoughts only to realize that the brunette was no longer on the bed.

'What the?.... Where did he go? ..... I only looked away for a second.... There is more to Tsuna than meets the eyes.... I'm the world's greatest hitman yet he keeps on escaping from my sight...'

Reborn tilted his fedora down and walked out of the room and headed towards Ie's room, hoping to take out some of his frustrations on the brat.

He couldn't suppress the smirk on his face as he poised a Leon mallet above the sleeping brat's head.

He swiftly smashed the mallet onto Ie's head, relishing the pained shriek that escaped from the teen's mouth as he toppled to the floor.

Brown orbs blinked in confusion before settling on the hitman.

"Reborn! Why did you hit me with that freakish lizard?!?"

Ie yelped, the hitman narrowed his gaze and hit the teen once more with the Leon mallet, allowing the chameleon to have his revenge.

"Leon is not freakish, he is my valued partner. And I woke you up because I felt like it"

The hitman replied, feigning innocence. Ie clenched his fists and grit his teeth, wanting nothing more than to squash the infant under his foot.

"What the hell is wrong with you?! It's–"

He looked over towards his clock that rested on his bedside and pointed at it dramatically.

"It's only a little bit passed five thirty! I have plenty of time to sleep yet you woke me up! Infants should sleep in, self appointed world's greatest hitman or not!"

Leon shifted into a gun and his fingers twitched in anticipation to pull the trigger, however he relented his anger knowing that it would be unprofessional of him to allow his emotions to cloud his actions.

"It's time to start your training"

The hitman replied smoothly, smothering his frustration with his thoughts of his special training plan that he had just made up especially for the little brat.

Ie panted as he collapsed onto the ground, he had been forced to run around Namimori for two hours and thirty minutes straight, the hitman firing bullets for motivation whenever he seemed like he was about to stop or take a small break.

"Baka-Ie, you're pathetic only managing to run around Namimori four times...... You should have at least managed to run around Namimori ten times!"

Reborn scolded, Ie just openly gawked at the infant as if he had grown two heads.

"Are you crazy?!? No normal person could do that right from the beginning!"

The hitman shrugged and cocked his Leon gun.

"You're to be Vongolia decimo"

'Even though you don't deserve it at all....'

"There is no need for you to be normal, just being average will result in you being dead in a ditch somewhere in the future"

'Though that would prevent Vongolia from another generation of bloodshed....'

"Tch...... I'm going to sleep.... I don't want to argue with you..."

Ie growled, reborn tilted his fedora and smirked.

"It's almost time for you to go to school Baka-Ie, you have no time to sleep"

An annoyed groan was the response from the brunette who made no attempt to get up and heed the hitman's warning.

'I guess I will have to use the dying will bullet on him, though..... I can't wait to see his reaction to it...'

Reborn had a sadistic smirk as he loaded a red bullet into his Leon gun and aimed it at the brunette. He didn't hesitate to pull the trigger, sending the bullet straight into his skull.

Suddenly a pale orange flame sprouted atop of Ie's forehead as he jumped up, his clothes being stripped from him except for his pink kitten boxers.


The brunette shouted before running off, leaving a shocked hitman behind.

'What the hell?.... Tsuna!'
