This is more than another tale about the Notebooks of Death...
Realm of the Shinigami
March 12, 2116
"That will cost three apples, kuku."
Ever since a Shinigami, Ryuuku, brought the food known as "apples" into the Shinigami Realm they had become something of a basic form of currency. In fact, Shinigami society had begun to change entirely. New interest in the Human World developed, and staged what some consider an evolution in Death God history.
Though they had evolved beyond hunger, apples had a drug like effect on the almost immortal creatures. Few wise Shinigami even went so far as to import Human soil and began agriculture in the formerly barren land. All of these violations of the law were overlooked by the King, who accepts constant bribes.
"You certainly did a handy job livening this place up, Ryuuku." Xail, a female lizard-like Shinigami with an amphibious tail said to the black adorned Shinigami laying on the floor with his head propped up. "As much of a paradox that statement is."
"Hyuk hyuk." Ryuuku laughed proudly. "I learned a lot of things from reading over Raito's shoulder."
"Hnn. Even though you left it up to chance, you sure got lucky finding that Human."
"Raito was the best person to pick it up I can think of. But he was just disappointing in the end."
"Hnn." Xail passed him by. "Anyways, I really did drop my Death Note by accident, so I have to be off."
"Don't eat more apples than you can take. Hyuk hyuk hyuk."
Descending the winding staircase, Xail sprouted eagle-like wings as she flew down into the Human World.
At that moment, even she couldn't fathom the events that were about to unfold that would change both worlds.
