Author's Notes: I do not own Detective Conan. It all belongs to Gosho Aoyama. I simply borrow the characters, tie them up, and dance them around like life-sized puppets. I do wish they’d stop complaining.
Summary: A meeting between thief and Inspector is interrupted by a phone call.

It was another busy heist night for the Kaitou Kid Taskforce, under the direction of their volatile leader. Nakamori-keibu was in particularly fine (swearing) form, particularly when the rest of his men got caught in Kid’s trap, leaving only him to face their most worthy of adversaries.

“Excellent job tonight!” the thief said approvingly, his applause muffled by his gloves. His eyes sparkled with unmuted glee, one of them darkened behind the ring of glass that was his trademark monocle.

Try as he might, Nakamori couldn’t quite keep himself from muttering something decidedly unprintable in response.

Kid looked like he was going to respond when a digital song interrupted them—a cell phone ring.

“Mine!” Kid cheered, fishing into his pocket and withdrawing the source of the ring. He paused to glance at the caller ID screen, and a wide smile broke on his face. He flipped it open and put it to his ear. “Ta voix est la chanson des anges!”

Nakamori stared blankly as Kid began carrying on a conversation with someone…in what appeared to be fairly fluent French. After about thirty seconds of this, he could no longer hold in his curiosity, and he spoke up. “Who the hell are you taking to?”

The white-clad thief turned away from his phone for a moment. “Chat Noir.”

“…the French cat burglar?”

“The one and only,” he nodded before returning to his conversation.

It took him a second to process this and all the implications thereof. Then Nakamori-keibu dropped his face into his hands. “Oh dear God…he’s NETWORKING.”

PS. The greeting Kid uses when he answers the phone is actually a pick-up line, translating to “Your voice is the song of angels!” The title means “The one and the other.” Much love to jeva_chan for helping me out with that. I don’t speak the language xD In other words, if it’s wrong, BLAME HER. Just to clarify, Chat Noir is a French burglar who appeared in one of the Kid files, the Goldeneye case.

Thanks for reading, all! Much love!

I just had to share the image that popped into my head after reading the "Mine!" from Kid:

Inpector Nakamori, with wide, terrified eyes darting in all directions, desperately clutching a large gem while peching on top of a rock close to the sea; and all around him, grinning toothily at their prey, are dozens upon dozens of Kaitou Kids, all cheering "Mine!" "Mine!" "Mine!" "Mine!"

*snickers at the thought of this being a nightmare for the poor inspector after he watches 'Finding Nemo'*

...whoever you are, you are my hero ~♥♥♥

I might put this out as a fanart request on my own LJ, if that's all right? It's just too priceless of an image to NOT be drawn :D

Re: Lurker from the Deeps~
Sure! I'd love to see artists' responses to that as well. :)

*shrug* And while I'm a sad little anonymous lurker, usually when I do bother to lable myself, it's with 'NNF'. *Troy McClure voice* You may remember me from other such famous posts as... uh... yeah.
