“Exactly what is that?” Dee asked, bemused, indicating the object clutched in Ryo’s hand. They were outside the courtroom, waiting to be called back to hear whether the man on trial would be convicted or get away with homicide. They knew he was guilty, but would the evidence they’d presented be enough to convince the jury that such a wealthy, respectable man was a cold-blooded murderer?
Ryo flushed; glancing down at the scrap of grey, he mumbled something.
“Didn’t quite catch that.”
“It’s a Totoro,” Ryo told his partner, blushing furiously. “My lucky mascot.”
Dee grinned. “Let’s hope it works.”
