Duel Monster Saviors
Ch. 12 – The King of Games VS The Red Wonder
Written by TheAmariaShadow
As the night passed by, none of us had the slightest idea what tomorrow would hold for us. However, something told me that today was going to be a pretty surprising day for everyone, student and staff alike. However, at the Grand Mansion, something was occurring that was definitely a shock for everyone that lived within it…
“No way! The King of Games alongside this generation’s King of Games, who’d think it’d be possible for the two of them to be in the same room?”, Jaden exclaimed as Atem covered his ears from how loud the Slifer Red headmaster was. “Easy, Jaden. My head is still ringing from the landing.”, the young Egyptian said as a plate of food was placed in front of him, his attention getting caught by Tea who was the one serving him. “We’re not surprised that your head is ringing, Atem. Not only did you travel from the afterlife, you traveled through the Dimensional Rift all the way from here. That’s normally Allen’s job to be in your position.”, she said as she handed Atem some utensils to eat. He smiled softly and said, “Thank you, Tea. Or should I say Mrs. Muto now?” Tea blushed when Atem said that. “You know?”, she asked. “I saw the wedding band around your finger when I woke up. So, where am I? For that matter, what time zone am I in too?”, Atem said as he nibbled into a piece of bread. “You’re in the year 2016. It’s been exactly 10 years since you left this world, Pharaoh. At least, in this universe, it’s been ten years. Everywhere else, it’s only been a few months.”, a voice rang out. Atem looked over only to see Yami staring back at him. “And you are?”, Atem asked. “Yami Nomura, I’m a teacher here as well as the co-headmaster of the Exodia Purple class. Might I say, it is an honor to meet the man who is known far and wide as the King of Games.”, Yami stated.
Atem chuckled and said, “Thank you, but that title belongs more to Yugi and not me. Speaking of which, where is he?” Tea took the apron off from her and said, “He is prepping some documents for you. You can’t just stay in the Mansion all the time, so you’ll be living your life here as a student until we can figure out more about why you are here.” Atem nodded as he continued eating at his food and said, “I sense something strange is going on, here on this island.” His attention was diverted as the door to the room opened and Yugi walked back in with what seemed to be a bundle of clothes and a Duel Disk. “Alright, everything is all set. You will be starting your time here as a Slifer Red, just like all new-coming students. This is your uniform and standard Duel Academy Duel Disk.”, Yugi said. He grinned softly as he removed the top card from the deck that was sitting comfortably in the Duel Disk and flashed it at Atem as he saw the photo of Dark Magician staring back at him. “I made this deck for you. Hopefully it’ll suit your tastes.”, Yugi stated.
“If you made it, I am certain it’ll do just fine.”, Atem replied as Yugi placed the deck into the Duel Disk. “Very well then. Now, you go ahead and get dressed. You will be taken to your first class by Yami here once you are ready.”, Yugi stated. Atem nodded as Yugi walked out of the room as he got dressed. As he finally placed his Millennium Puzzle around his neck, the Millennium Symbol flashed on his forehead as he looked out the window and thought, ‘What was that? I sense something dark on this island. Is that why I was brought back to the world of the living?’ He shook his head as he thought, ‘It’s too soon to tell. I got to learn more about the island and the people inhabiting it first.’
With a couple more adjustments to his outfit, he stepped out of the room and looked at Yami as he led the young Egyptian to his first class. Along the way, Yami told Atem exactly how he should act while he is around his fellow students and that he cannot reveal his identity to anyone since he was WELL KNOWN on the island. Meanwhile, in Yami’s classroom…
I yawned loudly as I looked around the class and said, “Hey, why is it that Yami always complains about us being late, yet the first time we are on time, he’s late to his own class?” Mikey looked at me and said, “Perhaps he got held up by a staff meeting or something? I did notice that Prof. Yuki and Prof. Wheeler had left to the Grand Mansion earlier this morning.” I raised an eyebrow as Crystal and Jessie sat down on the other side of me and said, “Jaden and Joey, huh? Strange, I also saw Yusei and the others heading over there when I left the dorm this morning. I wonder what’s going on over there?” Crystal looked over at Jessie as she doodled on a scrap piece of paper and said, “Perhaps they are working on repairs to the Grand Monument? I heard it got destroyed in the storm during my duel with Ms. Shade.”
“Crystal’s right, it could be dealing with that!”, Jessie said as she showed us a photo of the Monument in its former state. We nodded as we heard the door to the classroom open as Yami walked in and said, “Alright, alright, all of you in your proper places! Class shall begin momentarily!” As the bespectacled feline made his way to the front of the class, the remainder of the students took their proper places. Yami cleared his throat as he snapped his fingers as all the holoscreens in the room came to life as he said, “Alright, first order of business: as you all may know now, the Grand Monument was damaged during the storm a few days ago. As such, Chancellors Muto and Kaiba has advised all students to keep away from it while the staff works on repairs. Second, we have news that a new universe has been discovered within our dimension. As such, we shall be choosing a couple of students and one staff member to establish a link with the Academy in order to have new cards that are from that universe be accessible here. There is no definitive date as to when we shall be picking the students, so do keep your ears open for that.”
“Whoa, can you believe it? A new universe with brand new cards! I can’t wait to see what kind of cards will be getting this time!”, one student in the class cried out. As the students conversed, I immediately said, “Wow, I do hope we get chosen to go to this new universe. I would love to experience the new cards firsthand with my own eyes!” Crystal nodded and said, “You and me both, bro! I can’t wait to see who they choose!” I smiled as I heard a laugh behind us and said, “Good luck with that, dweebs! They only choose students with good grades for stuff like that! After all, you will be representing Amaria when you leave the campus! What makes you think they will choose a couple of Slifer rejects like you two?” My attention immediately darted towards the voice to see that those words came directly out of Dash’s mouth. “You never know what’ll happen, Dash. We may just get chosen and not you.”, I said. Dash was about to reply when Yami chimed in and said, “Quiet! I still have more announcements!”
The class went silent when Yami said that. He cleared his throat again and said, “Alright then, where was I? Oh yes, we have a new Slifer student joining us today. You may come in now!” We all turned our attention to the door as a young male walked in. My friends and I watched as he went up to the front of the room as Yami said, “Alright, why don’t you tell everyone your name and where you came from, young man?” The male looked at everyone with deep eyes of amethyst purple and said, “My name is Akio Hideyoshi. My universe is the Millennium Universe, same as Chancellor Muto’s and I am from Egypt. It is a pleasure to meet you all.” I frowned as I nudged Crystal slightly and said, “You feel it too, right?” She nodded as she said, “Yeah, I do. Something is definitely off about this kid. I can’t place it though.” Yami nodded as he said, “Akio may be a Slifer Red, but his entrance exam grades surpass everyone in this very room. He is, by the far, the most gifted student in the new class of students and has every eligibility to enter Exodia Purple. Now Akio, you may take your seat wherever you please. Akio walked over to the section of tables where my sister and I sat and looked Mikey in the face and said, “Is the seat next to you taken?”
“Not at all!”, Mikey replied as Akio took his place next to Mikey. “Hiya, my name is Mikey Redheart! It’s nice to meet you, Akio. These are my friends Onyx Sairenji, Crystal Noroi, and Jessie Kiriyama.”, Mikey continued, introducing the three of us to the new kid. Akio nodded as he said, “It’s nice to meet you. I do hope we get to know each other better during our time here.” I nodded as Yami said, “Now now, there will be more time to get more acquainted later. Next announcement: I am pleased to say that today marks the day of our yearly Exhibition Duel!” I raised an eyebrow when Yami said that. “What do you mean, Exhibition Duel?”, I asked. “Well, here at Duel Academy, with each new school curriculum, we have two students from one class show off their dueling talents in a duel for the entire campus to see. For this year, it’s a special duel that will include two students from Slifer Red. This has never happened before, so the students that will be chosen will be making academy history. Of course, there are a few rules to the Exhibition Duel. Now, would anyone like to tell me what those rules are?”, Yami asked.
A few hands raised within the room as Yami looked around, immediately pointing at Ben who was sitting behind us. “Yes, Mr. Kiriyama. Can you enlighten your fellow classmates on the rules of the Exhibition Duel?”, Yami asked. “Yes sir. The first rule is pretty simple: the duelists chosen for the duel are always picked randomly. That way, every student has a fair chance of dueling. Second: when the duelists are chosen, they will be subject to an anti-archetype law. The Anti-Archetype law states that a random archetype shall be chosen for the two duelists, and if either duelist uses a deck with the stated archetype, they are not allowed to use those cards in their decks and are immediately forced to make a new legal deck. Third: both duelists shall duel with 8000 life points instead of the recommended 4000 life points. And finally, the winner of the Exhibition Duel shall be awarded with one letter grade in one of their weaker subjects. For example, if you are failing in math with a D, your grade will be raised to a C.”, Ben stated. Yami smiled as he said, “Excellent, Ben! Thank you for relaying that information to us. And the final announcement for today: in a few weeks, we shall be hosting the annual School Dance. Each Student must have a chaperone and one date to go along with to the Dance. It is not a requirement to go, but it is a good way of getting some well-deserved R & R from your everyday school lives.”
I groaned slightly as I heard a bunch of girls and guys mumble to themselves. If there was one thing I disliked more than bullies or spinach, it was DANCING. Yami clapped his hands slightly and said, “Settle down now. With those announcements out of the way, we shall get started with today’s class. Today we shall delve into the history of the Legendary Knight archetype and its impact on the world of Duel Monsters.”
As Yami’s class droned on, within the Grand Mansion….
A gentle knock on the door was heard on the doors of Mokuba’s office. He kept his attention on his paperwork as he said, “Enter!” The doors opened as Jaden walked in as he held an envelope in his hand and said, “The duelists for the Exhibition Duel has been chosen, Prof. Kaiba. I just need you to choose the archetype that will be deemed illegal for the duel.” Mokuba looked away from his paperwork as he said, “Thank you, Prof. Yuki. You can leave that with me and I’ll take care of the rest.” Jaden nodded as he handed the envelope to Mokuba and walked out of his office, closing the door behind him. Mokuba frowned as he said, “What is Seto and Yugi thinking? Why would they choose for two Slifer slackers to duel this year? Are they trying to disappoint our students? …Oh well, it can’t be too bad. What students are dueling this time?” He unsealed the envelope and pulled out the student roster forms that were in the envelope, immediately groaning as he saw a familiar blue hedgehog staring back at him. “Really!? That Sairenji kid is always going to be a thorn in my side! Who is he dueling against?”, Mokuba asked as he looked at the second form, grinning wildly as he saw a very familiar set of amethyst eyes. “Well well well, this is an interesting turn of events! In that case, I know EXACTLY what to do!”, he stated as he laughed loudly, his attention turning to his computer.
A few hours later….
I smiled wildly as I nibbled into a slice of pizza as I said, “It doesn’t matter if Slifer Red is the least loved class on the campus, but the food is ALWAYS amazing at lunchtime!” Crystal smiled as she joined me along with Mikey and Jessie with their lunch and said, “You just love to eat, don’t you Onyx?” I nodded as I saw Akio walk past our table as I said, “Hey, new guy! We have an extra seat!” Akio smiled as he sat down among us and said, “Thank you, Onyx. I thought I would have to enjoy my lunch alone.” Akio looked at me as he said, “So, I hear that you and your sister are the dueling hotshots in the Slifer class. Is that true?” I grinned as I said, “Well, it’s nothing to brag about, really. We’re just good at what we love best!” Mikey chimed in as he said, “He’s just being modest! Those two have a talent for dueling that I’ve never seen before! They both use the Celestial Guard archetype and they are in such sync with each other, it’s almost scary!” Akio looked at me and Crystal with a raised eyebrow and said, “You two use the Celestial Guard cards? Is Mikey saying you two actually own all those cards?” Crystal nodded as she nibbled a French Fry and said, “It’s true. It took years to collect all the cards, but we finally pulled it off. Onyx here uses the Allen side of the archetype while I use Retsu’s side.” Akio blinked slightly as he was amazed on what he had heard.
“Wow. I never believed there was someone else out there that used the Celestial Guard archetype. Perhaps you two would treat me to a duel someday.”, Akio stated. I nodded as I said, “Anytime, Akio!”
If only I knew that Akio’s wish to duel was going to be a lot sooner than we thought….
My attention was immediately diverted as my PDA went off in my pocket. I immediately removed it as I saw a message notification blinked on it. I tapped the screen as Mokuba’s face appeared on it as he said, “Congratulations! You have been selected for today’s Exhibition Duel!” Jessie came up from her bowl of ice cream and said, “Congrats, Onyx! You certainly deserve to duel!” I smiled as Mokuba said, “For this Exhibition Duel, the Celestial Guard archetype is officially banned from usage! So if you use these cards, please modify your deck according to this duel!” Everyone went silent as they heard those words. I frowned deeply as Mokuba stated, “Once you receive this message, you have exactly one hour to be prepared. Once you are done, you are to report to the Duel Arena in the Slifer Red campus. So, good luck and have fun!” With that, the message came to an end. I crossed my arms as I said, “Mokuba rigged this duel. He knows that Crystal and I are the only ones who use the Celestial Guard archetype on the island!” Mikey shook his head and said, “It would be rotten luck if the archetype was chosen randomly, but it is Mokuba we are talking about. I am not surprised that he did this purposefully.” Jessie immediately chimed in and said, “Did anyone else realize that he didn’t say who Onyx is dueling? Maybe he forgot?” As Crystal was about to reply, another PDA sounded off. We all looked immediately to our right as I saw Akio reaching for his own, Mokuba’s face appearing on his. “You. I have to duel you.”, I stated. Akio frowned slightly as he said, “It appears that way. What are you going to do, Onyx?”
I picked up the remainder of my lunch and swallowed it immediately, standing to my feet as I said, “I’m going to go modify my deck and duel, of course! This won’t get me down!” I looked to Akio and held a hand out to him and say, “May the best duelist win.” Akio smiled as he shook my hand and said, “Same to you.” I nodded as I looked at Crystal and the others, Crystal immediately stating, “Go on. We know you have a deck to make. Get it done.” I smiled as I returned my dishes to a nearby cart and ran out of the cafeteria, immediately to the elevator. Akio smiled softly as he returned to his lunch, eating it quickly as he thought up his strategy for the duel.
As the minutes ticked away, both Akio and I got prepared for our duel mentally and spiritually. Creating a new deck wasn’t an easy feat, but I am certain the deck I have prepared will do me just fine. I just wonder what kind of deck Akio uses? I’m certainly about to find out, because the time of the duel is now….
Jaden walked up to the stage of the arena and said, “Hello, Duel Academy! My name is Jaden Yuki, and I am the headmaster of Slifer Red! I am also your greeter for this year’s Exhibition Duel! This duel is the first one of its kind since this time, we have not one, but TWO Slifer Red duelists battling it out this year! Now, before we bring in our duelists, let me recap our Anti-Archetype law! This law states that whatever archetype that was chosen randomly for this duel, that archetype will be illegal to use! This year’s illegal archetype is…!” He looked at the screen as the Sacred Seal appeared on the screen, a few of the monsters from the Celestial Guard archetype appearing soon after as he said, “Oh my! It looks like the Celestial Guard archetype is illegal to use in this duel! So, for our duelists who are dueling, I hope you modified your decks accordingly! Now, let us meet this year’s duelists! Our first contender is the oldest of the Sairenji-Noroi twins by a few seconds. He has overtaken the academy as one of Slifer Red’s ace duelists along with his sister Crystal! Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the stage Onyx Sairenji!”
I walked out of the nearby corridor as I waved to everyone as Jaden said, “Our next contender is a newcomer to Slifer Red. He has the highest scores on the entrance exams and is easily a model student! Enter Akio Hideyoshi!” Akio walked out with a serious face, I gulped slightly as I felt a different aura about him: one of nothing but sheer confidence. “Now you two, remember that this duel is for fun, so activate your Duel Disks and GET YOUR GAME ON!” We both nodded as we activated our Duel Disks as Akio said, “Onyx, I wish you good luck! I don’t plan on losing!” I grinned as I said, “With my faith in Yugi’s teachings on the Heart of the Cards, I won’t be needing luck!” Akio grinned as we both said, “IT’S TIME TO DUEL!”
“I’ll start things off! I activate the Spell card Upstart Goblin from my hand! This’ll allow me to draw one card from my deck, but you will end up receiving the gift of 1000 extra Life Points. A simple price to pay in order to get an extra card!”, Akio stated as he drew an extra card from his deck. Next, I shall summon Magician’s Rod from my hand, and when he is Normal Summoned, his ability activates!”, Akio stated. “What ability is that?”, I asked. “What he does is allow me to add one Spell or Trap card from my deck that lists ‘Dark Magician’ in its text! The card I choose is Dark Magic Circle, and I shall activate it immediately! What this card does is allows me to look at the top three cards of my deck, and if any of them lists Dark Magician in the text, I can reveal it to you and add it to my hand. Also, if Dark Magician is Normal Summoned or Special Summoned to the field, I can choose a card on your field and banish it! I can only activate this effect once per turn! So, let’s see what I got, shall we?”, Akio stated as he drew his top three cards. He frowned as he said, “You lucked out this time, so I shall replace these cards in this order, place three cards facedown, and I shall end my turn. It’s your move!”, Akio finished as I said, “IT’S TIME TO KICK THINGS TO THE NEXT LEVEL! I draw! And from my hand, I shall summon Elemental Hero Shadow Mist! But he won’t be here for long since I shall activate the Spell card Mask Change! With this, I can Tribute Shadow Mist in order to Special Summon a Masked Hero Fusion monster with the same Attribute as Shadow Mist! I choose Masked Hero Dark Law! “, I stated as my monster appeared on the field. “Now my monster, attack Magician’s Rod!”, I said as the monster got destroyed, Akio’s life points dropped from 8000 to 7200. “I shall now activate Twin Twisters! By discarding a card, I shall destroy your Dark Magic Circle!”, I stated. Akio growled slightly as he said, “Not bad, Onyx!” I smirked as I said, “I’ll place two cards facedown and call it a turn. Your move!”
Akio frowned as he said, “It’s my turn! Draw!” He looked at the card he drew and said, “No big move from me this time, so I shall play a monster in defense mode and call it a turn. It’s your move!” I grinned as I said, “My move again! I draw!” I looked at the card as I frowned and thought, ‘Let’s see here….Akio has four cards facedown. They must be there to protect his monster. I better keep to the defensive and see what he has planned.’ I looked at Akio and said, “Sorry, Akio, but I won’t be lured into a trap! Instead, I’ll place one card facedown and call it a turn! Your move.” Akio grinned as he said, “That’s a shame. If you attacked me, my field would’ve been empty!” My eyes widened as I said, “Say what?!” Akio frowned as he said, “Observe! It’s my turn, I draw! I shall Flip Summon my facedown monster, Summoner Monk! When this monster is Flip Summoned, he is switched to Defense position! And now, I shall activate his special ability! By discarding a Spell card, I can Special Summon one Level 4 monster from my deck, but that monster is not allowed to attack this turn! I choose my Choco Magician Girl! And when she is in play, her ability activates! I can discard one Spellcaster I own and draw an extra card this turn! Also, if this monster is targeted for an attack, I can Special Summon one Spellcaster from my Graveyard that isn’t Choco Magician Girl and that monster is treated as the target instead! So, I draw! And I shall immediately summon another Magician’s Rod! His ability shall activate, and this time, I shall add the Trap card Eternal Soul to my hand! Now, I shall build the Overlay Network with my Lv 4 Choco Magician Girl and my Lv 4 Summoner Monk! Appear before me now! Rank 4, Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon!!!”
My eyes widened as a black dragon appeared before Akio and said, “I’ve never even heard of that card! What does it do?” Akio shook his head and said, “All in due time, Onyx. For now, Dark Rebellion, attack Dark Law!” I clicked my teeth as my monster got destroyed, my Life Points dropping from 9000 to 8900. “Now, Magician’s Rod! Attack Onyx directly!”, Akio said, I groaned loudly as my Life Points dropped by 1600, resting at 7300. “I’ll end my turn with a card facedown. It’s your move.”, Akio stated. “Alright, it’s my move! I draw! I’ll activate a facedown spell: E – Emergency Call! With this, I can add one Elemental Hero to my hand from my deck!”, I stated. “In that case, I shall activate my trap Eternal Soul!”, Akio replied. “Ok, so what does it do?”, I asked. “This card has two abilities, one that I shall activate now: I can Special Summon the Dark Magician from my hand or Graveyard, so appear Dark Magician!”, Akio stated as he summoned Dark Magician from his hand. “No way! You had that in your hand this whole time?!”, I stated. Akio smiled as he said, “Pick your card, Onyx.” I frowned as I revealed another Shadow Mist from my deck and added it to my hand. “I shall summon Shadow Mist, place a card facedown, and end my turn.”, I said. “My turn, I draw! I shall place one card facedown and activate the Spell card The Eye of Timaeus!”, Akio replied.
“The Eye of WHAT NOW?!”, I exclaimed in shock. “When this card is played, I can target one Dark Magician monster on my field and Fusion Summon a monster with it listed as a Fusion material! I Fusion Summon Amulet Dragon! And with my Dragon on the field, his ability activates. I can banish ever Spell card in both our Graveyards, and his Attack points shall raise by 100 points! Combined, we have three Spells, so Amulet Dragon’s points will raise to the tune of 300, bring his total back to 3200! And if you thought I was done, Eternal Soul kicks in and brings back Dark Magician from the Graveyard!” My eyes widened as I saw Dark Magician return, his two dragons roaring loudly at me. “Oh boy, this isn’t good!”, I exclaimed. Akio closed his eyes as he said, “As extra incentive, I shall activate the Quick Play spell Magic Expand. With it, my Dark Magician’s attack points raise by 1000, resting at 3500!” My eyes widened as I said, “No way. I lost!” I sighed as I grinned and said, “Go for it, Akio! It was a fun duel and you had the better cards!” Akio nodded as he said, “Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon, attack Shadow Mist with Falling Mandible Charge!” Onyx growled as Shadow Mist vanished once again, Akio immediately stating, “Amulet Dragon, attack Onyx’s Life Points directly!” The dragon roared as it launched its attack, Onyx’s Life Points resting at a mere 2600. “Dark Magician, end this now with DARK MAGIC ATTACK!!!”, Akio stated. I closed my eyes as my life points dropped to zero, my Duel Disk deactivated as Jaden said, “And that is it, ladies and gentlemen! The winner of this year’s Exhibition Duel is Akio Hideyoshi! Let’s give a warm round of applause to our two contestants, shall we?”
I sighed as the entire campus roared in applause, Akio walked over to me and extended his hand as he said, “That was a great duel, Onyx. You have the makings of a great duelist and I await for our next duel.” I smiled as I shook Akio’s hand and said, “You bet, Akio. And next time, I’ll win!” Akio chuckled as Jaden said, “Now that’s how a duel should truly be. Duels are meant to be fun, and I believe all of us has witnessed just that with these two. Now, that’s it! Return to your dorms!” As Jaden said that, the entire campus stirred as each student began to return to their dorm rooms. Akio looked to me and said, “Well, I shall be off. Until next time, Onyx.” I nodded as Akio walked amongst the crowd of students that left the arena, Mikey and the others immediately joining me on the stage. I looked at my hand and said, “That was…..weird.” Crystal caught me when I said that and said, “Weird? Weird how, Onyx?” I shook my head and looked back to where Akio previously stood and said, “It might be funny to say this, but it almost felt….like I was dueling Yugi again when I dueled Akio.” Mikey raised an eyebrow and replied, “Hmm….ya know, I did get that kind of vibe when I watched you two duel. It was like watching Yugi and Kaiba duel back in Battle City all over again.” I nodded as Jessie said, “That was a great duel, Onyx! I wish it was me who could’ve dueled against Akio.”
I chuckled as Robin stated, “Well guys, I am going to head over to the Ra Yellow campus to tune my Duel Runner. See you guys later.” She waved to us as she left, Ben immediately stating, “Onyx, your duel was indeed splendid. Know this though: you and I have to duel as well. Next time, it’ll be you and me battling against each other.” I smirked as I said, “Bring it on anyday, Ben!” Ben nodded as he walked away, Leslie immediately saying, “See you tomorrow, guys! Ben, wait for me!” I grinned as I looked at Crystal and said, “You think those two are an item?” Crystal nodded as Ranko chimed in and said, “Wow, that’s cute. Anyway guys, let’s go on back to the dorm. They’re starting to lock the place up.” I nodded as I said, “Let’s head home, guys.”
As we left, two figures walked onto the stage as they looked around to see that no one was still there….
“So, what did you think, Sanji? Did the Pharaoh still have his skills or what?”, Yami said as he adjusted his glasses. Sanjiel removed the hood on her jacket from her head as she said, “Yes, it is truly an honor to see that his dueling skills are still intact. However, I still question WHY he is back in the world of the living. His original duty was to defeat Zorc Necrophades and regain his name, but now…..only the Will of Amaria knows what he is here for.” She looked at Yami as she said, “The power of the Millennium Ring tells me there is definitely something going wrong here on Academy Island. We best keep our eyes peeled and our ears wide open.” Yami nodded as the two left the arena, the lights shutting off entirely in the building.
As the night passed, neither of us knew that the gears of fate were ever turning. Why is it that Atem, the ancient Egyptian Pharaoh and former soul partner of Yugi Muto, has returned to the world of the living? Could it be a return of the Shadow Games? Could it be just a coincidence? Or maybe does Amaria have plans for him and the remainder of us? Only time can tell….
To be continued….
