L and Watari
"How is Near doing?" That's what L would ask Watari all the time. Even if there was no point in asking, L would ask. He was always sending Near puzzles and toys, and sometimes unsolved cases. Near was one of many in line to be L's successor, but L had already chosen Near, for his, simply put, everything.
"Hello?" Watari said into the phone in the hotel room. "Yes, this is Watari. Ah, I see. I understand.
"Who was that, Watari?" L mumbled inbetween bites of his cookie. "That was just an old friend back at Wammy's, calling to say they want you to meet Near."
L paused for a moment to think, he had never thought of actually meeting his successor.
"Why do they want me to meet Near?" L said, somewhat nervously. "They say, Near demanded it." Watari replied. L thought, he must be stubborn, just like me. "When do they want me to come to meet him?" L said. "Whenever you think you want to."
"Let's go tomorrow then, shall we?"
