Ryou Bakura sighed as he closed his chocolate colored eyes, then he reopen them. He sat up in his bed and looked out the window of his room. He felt so... out of it. And not only that... he has been having weird dreams of a girl with light brown hair and emerald-green eyes. She reminded him of Sakura Avalon, a girl that he had just met not too long ago. But she did look different in some way. Instead of short hair, her hair was long wavy and Bakura was there as well... in the his dreams, she is very close to the King of Thieves. And he even remembered Bakura saying Kura. Were these dreams of Bakura past? And if so, why was he having these dreams in the first place? He shook his head, trying to get rid of the thought.
It was not only that... Ryou was uneasy around girls in general - besides Joey's sister Serenity and Téa - Sakura on the other hand was different. Sure, he didn't feel uneasy around her like other girls... but she made him feel something different inside of himself that he was not use to and he continued to wondered why? Why was she different from all the other girls that he had met before? But the questions continued not to be answered, because he had no answer as to why he felt the way that he did. It was like she was some sort of sorceress casting a spell on him to make him feel this way. Ryou groaned. This was just ridiculous! But as he continued to tell himself that, he couldn't help but feel his heart skip a beat.
A light skin girl gazed up at the stars that were in the night sky. Her emerald-green eyes showed sadness in them. She felt the light breeze against her face, and even though the breeze was light - her short light brown hair danced in the wind. As she sat outside of the little house that she and Bakura lived in. But that was not why she was sad - no, not at all. She loved staying with Bakura, he was like a brother that she never had. But the reason why she felt sad was because of her parents. She remembered that they were trying to protect there only child and daughter. They - whoever they were, killed her parents... everything in the small town was burn down and somehow she was able to escape from the burn down town. She always continued to ask why did her parents have to die? Her mother was a kind a loving person and her father was the same.
She missed them dearly. She pulled her knees up to her chest and hugged her legs. She wanted to cry so bad, but... she would not. Her mother and father always told her that she needed to be strong, it did not matter what happen she needed to stay strong, but at times she felt that she could not stay strong... she was just a child. But she kept telling herself that she had to stay strong for her new found friend. A young boy with short messy pale purple hair and ruby-red eyes. His skin is bronze because he is a Egyptian. He is wearing a sleeveless sand colored tunic and sand colored slip shoes. He stared at her for a moment before he sat next to her and placed a hand on her back. She jumped a bit and turned and looked over at Bakura. "Bakura!" she said with surprise. "What? Did you think I was some night prowler?" he teased. She pouted and glared at him. "Bakura! You meanie!" he just laughed at her; then his expression changed soon after.
"Are you alright Kura?" she looked up at him surprised and saw the deep concern on his face. She looked up into his eyes and then she smiled. "I'm fine Bakura, I'm just thinking." she said softly. Bakura knew that she was thinking about her parents and he remembered when he first saw her... she was crying her eyes out and he wondered why such a cute child would be crying like she was - he then found out that she had lost her parents and her village was burned down. Just like him... she had no one to watch over and he had no one to be with - so he took her with him, so that he could watch over her. He treated her like a little sister and she was the only family that he had; even if they were not blood related. He wrapped his arm around her shoulder so that she lend against his shoulder, he then looked at the stars just as she was doing.
There was a pause between the two of them before Kura spoke up. "Bakura."she said softly. "Hmm?" was his reply. "What do you think will happen... to us?" she asked as she looked at him, he looked back down at her and was silent for a moment. He knew that she was worried that something bad going to happen to the both of them. But he would not let that happen - he then turn back to look at the stars. "I don't know." he began and Kura looked away from him and looked at her feet, a sad look in her eyes. "But..." Kura blinked and looked up at Bakura once more and he looked at her and gave her a small smile. "I am sure that we will be fine, do not worry so much. Do not think ahead of time, it will only stress you out. Just take one day at a time, Kura." he said softly. She stared into his ruby-red eyes, she gave him a bright smile and then hugged him. He wouldn't let anyone harm Kura, he would hurt anyone that tried to touch her or harm her, she after all was family. With that thought in mind he held her closer to him.
Bakura woke up with a start and groaned, sweat going down his face. He sat up in his bed that was in his soul room - he rubbed the back of his neck as he narrowed his eyes. ' What was that all about? ' he thought to himself, he then sighed. ' Why am I dream of her? Why am I dreaming of Kura? ' he frown; it had been a very long time since he thought of his Kura. She was the only reason he even enjoyed life, he wanted to make her happy and he wanted to protect her with his life - but just as the Pharaoh had killed his village, the new Pharaoh had taken his Kura away from him and that was what his true anger came from. And then something came to him. ' It couldn't be... could it? ' "Could that girl be related to Kura?"
Ryou Bakura grumbled to himself as he walked though the mall; it was Saturday and he was trying to stay away from his friends, because he knew that she would be around as well. Why wouldn't she be? She after all was Tristan's cousin, and she did not know anyone beside her cousin, Yugi, Téa, Joey and himself - but why was he thinking about a girl that he hardly knew? It was driving him crazy and he thought that if he got out for awhile that his mind could be at ease... but no! He continued to suffer with the thoughts of her, her beautiful smile - her lovely green eyes that reminded him of emeralds... he stopped in mid thought - ' Just my luck... ' he felt like dying right then and there. There she was looking through a glass window of a shop - he also notice the outfit that she is wearing - a white sleeveless shirt and a sky blue ruffled mini shirt, white knee high socks and blue shoes with a strap over top; part of her hair was clipped back and she brushed some of her hair from her face.
' She's wearing my favorite color... ' Ryou's favorite color is blue and he just so happen to be wearing a blue and white strip short sleeve, over top his shirt his a light blue short sleeve button down shirt that is open. He is also wearing a pair of light gray jeans and blue and white tennis shoes. Maybe if he turned away, she wouldn't notice him... but as he was about to do just that, Sakura looked up and saw Ryou and she smiled. "Ryou!" ' Bloody hell. ' he should of turned around when he first saw her! She ran over to him, still smiling at him. "H-hi." he said as he rubbed the back of his neck as a blush formed on his cheeks. "What are you doing here?" she asked as she looked at him. "Just - just walking around." he said slowly as he looked at the beautiful girl before him. "What about you?" he asked - a blush still on his cheeks. He felt like a nervous idiot in front of her and he wish that he wasn't like that. He watched as she put her arms behind her back in a cute manner.
"I'm looking for a gift."
His blush vanish from his cheeks and he blinked. " A gift?" he question. She nodded her head. "Uh huh, but I don't know what to get." a sad look went across her face and he frown, he did not like seeing her like that. "Who is it for?" he asked. She blinked and looked up at him. "For Yugi. He help me the other day and I wanted to get him something as a thank you gift." she replied. Ryou froze - she was getting something for Yugi? He didn't know what he felt at that moment... was it sadness? Hate or Jealousy? He was sure it wasn't hate or jealousy, but why would he be sad that she was giving Yugi a gift? Ryou felt confused and he wanted to get out of the mall fast.
"Ryou?" he looked over at Sakura and he saw her pointing at someone. "Isn't that Téa?
Téa Gardner let out a sigh as she walk though the mall wearing her read tank top, black mini skirt and black knee high boots. She held her purse over her shoulder and she walked slowly. Ever since Sakura Avalon had come to Domino City, Téa had been avoiding her and she was feeling bad because of it. Normally she was very cheerful and happy to make friends, but when she met Sakura - she felt jealous for some reason. Sakura was a very beautiful girl for age and Téa could never compare - at least that is what she thought. Plus she had this feeling like she had met her somewhere before... but she knew that was not possible because she had only met her since she came here. ' I really should say sorry to her. ' she thought to herself as her eyes sadden. Maybe she was feeling this way because Sakura seem to becoming close to the guys... as friends. Most of Téa's friends are boys and maybe she felt that this Sakura girl was going to take them way from her, leaving her in the dust. She felt like a horrible person.
"Téa!" said girl looked up and saw Sakura Avalon waving and smiling at her, she also saw Ryou with her with his hands in his pockets with a smile on his face. What was Sakura doing at the mall? And why was Ryou with her? Were they dating and no one told her anything? But why should she care... it wasn't like it was any of her business if they were or not. But for some reason she felt jealous, but why should she be? She shouldn't care. She finally spoke up and smiled and gave a weak wave. "Hi Ryou, Sakura." she said as she walked up to them. "What's up?" asked Sakura. "I'm shopping" the blue eyed girl replied as she looked at the two teenagers. "So what are the two are you doing?"
Sakura's blinked her emerald-green eyes when she saw a sad look in Téa's blue eyes. What she heard from her cousin and the guys, that Téa is a very happy person and she likes to help people - even if she has a temper at times. She is also very nice and kind hearted. But to Sakura, Téa seem distant... did she do something wrong? "Is something the matter?" Sakura asked with worry, deep concern in her eyes as she stared at the brown haired girl before her. Téa blinked her blue colored eyes as she stared at Sakura in shock. "I—uh..." she paused. ' It's now or never Gardner, just say it. ' she thought to herself. "I have to tell you something." Téa said softly, she then looked up at Ryou. "Can I speak to Sakura alone?" Ryou was surprised but nodded and walked away leaving the girls alone. "Sakura.. I'm sorry." Téa apologized as she bowed, there was a bit of a pause and Téa was becoming worried. Sakura stared at her with clear puzzlement on her face. "For what?" she asked, quite confused.
"I have been rude to you since you came here and I have been ignoring you as well..." another pause. "I haven't been myself lately and I am really-" before Téa could finish, Sakura interrupted her. "You don't need to be sorry." said Sakura with a smile on her face. Téa looked up in surprise. She was forgiving her that easily? She gave a small smile. "Thank you." she said softly. Téa then looked up at Sakura's face. "... does this mean we can be friends?" she asked - "Of course!" Sakura said happily, Téa smiled back. Sakura then turn and gave Ryou a happy wave. "Ryou!" she said happily. Ryou heard his name being called and he walked towards the girls. "Everything alright?" he asked as he stuffed his hands in his pockets. Sakura nodded with a smile. "Yep!"
"Sakura." she looked up at him, wondering what he was thinking. "Hmm?" she asked. "What are you looking for, as a gift I mean?" he asked. Sakura sighed at the question. "I don't know, I haven't known him that long and I don't know what to get!" she said as her shoulders slumped. "Gift? Him?" Téa question out of the blue. The two teens looked at the brown haired girl, Sakura nodded her head. "Yes a gift for Yugi." ' Yugi? ' Téa was a bit speechless, why was Sakura looking for a gift for Yugi? Not that it really matter to her, she only thought of Yugi as her childhood friend, he was like a brother to her - nothing else. "Would you like me to help? I'm good at finding gifts, a I have known Yugi for a long time." Téa spoke up with a smile on her face. "Really!" Asked Sakura, Téa nodded. Sakura's eyes lit up. "Thank you Téa! You're the best!" she said with a huge smile; she then turn to Ryou. "How about you Ryou? Do you want to come with us?" she asked him. He looked at her for a moment and then he gave a small smile. "Sure, why not." he replied softly, she smiled at him. "Great! C'mon!" she said in a happy tone as she took a hold of his hand and dragged a blushing Ryou with her, while Téa followed the two; giggling.
Marik Ishtar mutter a curse under his breath as his right eye was twitching every so often. He stared at the ceiling and glared at it hoping that it would make the feeling that he was having go away - no such luck. He moved his bronze arm over his eyes and groan. What the hell was wrong with him? It was driving him crazy! He didn't even know the blasted girl's and yet he was having these strange feelings for the girl that he had met. All that he could picture in his mind was how pretty she was with her short light brown hair and her beautiful emerald-green eyes, she was very different looking from what he was use to... but he really could not say much because he hardly knew any girls. He the removed his arm from his eyes and sat up in his bed. He then blinked his violet colored eyes when he heard a knock on his door.
Master Marik... are you alright?" a male voice asked from the other side of Marik's door. Marik sighed - his brother worried to much for his well fair. "I'm fine Oiden." he replied - but even though he said that he was not even sure what was wrong, he was really confused himself. On the other side of the door, Oiden fell silent. He knew that their was something wrong with his young master. What it was he did not know, but he knew if Marik was ready to talk he would. "Dinner will be served shortly, Master Marik." he said in a calm voice. "I'll be their in a little bit." was Marik's reply. Marik's heard his brothers foot steps leave and go down the hall - he then let out a sigh as he moved his legs over the side of his bed and cover his face with his hands. ' I wonder if I'll see her again? '
~ In another part of Domino City, Kaiba Corporation. ~
Seto Kaiba, CEO of Kaiba Corporation was sitting at his desk - paper work on his on desk, but his mind was not on his paper work that was before him. It was the girl that he saw at school - he knew that girl, he knew her very well. She was a close friend of his and his little brother Mokuba. They met each other when they were kids, she was the only one that he would really talk to besides his brother Mokuba. His blue eyes looked at the picture that was on his desk. In the picture was a ten year old kid with short brown hair and blue eyes, he was smiling in the picture. Next to the boy was a girl of nine with short light brown hair, some strands of her hair framing her face - she also has beautiful emerald-green eyes and you could see that her smile reach her eyes as well.
In front of the was a small boy of three, with wild black hair that reached a little over his shoulders and blue eyes. He had a big smile on his face. That was one of the better times in his life that he had, he would only smile for her and his brother - he cared deeply for them and he did not want nothing to happen to them. But he wondered why Sakura Kinomoto was in Domino City? Was she visiting someone that he did not know? He frown deeply at the thought, he should not be thinking such thoughts; she after all was his long time friend. He blues looked back at the picture and he gave a small smile as he traced Sakura's face. "Why am I thinking of you, all of the sudden... Sakura?" he asked himself as he sighed - he really wish he knew the answer.
~ With Bakura ~
Bakura stared at the girl though Ryou's eyes. Sakura looked so much like Kura - the girl had the same beautiful emerald-green eyes and light brown hair, the only differences was that Sakura hair was short in the back while longer strands framed her pretty face. This is why he thought that she maybe Kura's descendant - but he was not sure. But he also notice that there was something odd about this Avalon girl, something amiss. He could sense that she had some kind of power within her... a strong and powerful aura is what he felt, also sense nothing dark in her - everyone after all had some sort of darkness or hate inside of themselves, but not her - she felt pure and light and he even thought he saw a pink glow surround her; but of course no normal human would be able to see it. He could because he was a spirit and he knew that blasted Pharaoh could too. He narrowed his eyes, he needed to keep an eye on her - and find out what she really was or who she was.
Back with trio; Ryou, Sakura and Téa are laughing as they walk down the street - Téa held three shopping bags while Sakura only held one; Ryou didn't need anything at the mall since he was trying to forget about the weird feeling about the girl that was next to him - but it wasn't so bad when Téa was with them, he felt more at ease then anything and he was glad that he could at at least be himself. Now that he thought about it - he never felt uneasy when he was around Téa and he was always uneasy around girls because he didn't know how to react most of the time. Sakura didn't really make him uneasy, he just was having weird feelings that he could not understand and Téa, he could also be himself when he was around her. He shook his head and mutter something under his breath. He was glad the two girls didn't notice the way he was acting at that moment. "Well this looked like my stop." Téa said with a smile on her face as she waved. "Bye Ryou, bye Sakura." they nodded and with that Téa went around the corner and down the street to where her house is. Sakura smiled; she was glad that she and Téa were becoming friends, that had agreed to have a girls night out one day while Sakura was still in town. They both agreed to go the mall on Saturday. Sakura then turned to Ryou.
"Thank you so much for helping me find a gift!" she said with a bright smile - which only made Ryou blush. He put his hand behind his neck and rubbed his neck nervously, he really wish that Téa would've stayed. "I-I didn't really do anything, Téa was the one that really helped." he replied as his blush redden a bit more on his cheeks. Dammit! Why did he have to act so shy in front of her? Why couldn't he be himself like he was in front of Téa? He felt like such a geek... He was snapped back to reality when she spoke up. "We should do this again!" she said with a big smile on her face. But then she sighed. "The only times I get to see you are when we are at school." Ryou stared at her with surprise on his face - did she want to see more of him? "Oh! I know, how about we go out and do something together - so we can get to know each better." she said as her emerald-green eyes lit up. He blinked his chocolate brown eyes. "Sure... I would like that." he said softly as a small smile graced his lips. Sakura jumped for joy and she took a hold of Ryou's hand and ran, pulling him with her - he gave a surprise gasp and she only smiled and laughed... and he had to admit that was the two things he liked about Sakura Avalon, was her bright smile and the way she laughed; it was beautiful music to his ears.
After a little while they just walked side by side down the street. Sakura was so glad that she had come to Domino City, she was able to see her cousin Tristan and meet his friends. They are all very nice and funny and she was happy that she was becoming friends with them - it made her very happy... but at the same time she missed her old friends and would like to see then again. But she did wounder what was going on with that attack a few days ago; not even Kero could sense that she was even in trouble. This worried her... but their was Yami and he did save her life, but he did get hurt and she felt like it was her fault - she looked down as she walked. Even though she was the mistress of the clow... why did she feel useless? Ryou looked over at Sakura hearing that she was silent for awhile. He saw a sad look go across her face, something was clearing bothering her - but what? Did he do something to make her upset? His heart tighten at the thought of making her upset or hurting her.
"Are you alright Sakura?" he asked with concern clearly in his voice. They both stopped walking and she looked up at him and saw the deep worry in his eyes; she only blinked at the silver-white haired boy. "Oh! I'm alright, just thinking about my friends back home." she replied with a smile. ' So that what it was. ' Ryou thought as he looked at her. "Do you miss them?" he asked and she nodded. "Very much... they are all very dear to me." she said with a small smile. Then out if know where the wind began to pick up. Sakura slid her bag onto her elbow and rubbed her arms as a chill ran down her spine. "Brrr, its cold." Ryou was going to ask her if she wanted to use his jacket so she could stay warm but the wind picked up even harder - Ryou took Sakura into his arms, her head against his chest. His one arm around her back and the other covering her head so that he could protect her from the strong winds. Then sudden the millennium ring that was under shirt began to glow, sending Ryou into his soul room as Bakura took control. Sakura buried face in his chest, wounder what in the world was happening... but then she felt something and her eyes widen. A strange aura... a very dark aura... she looked up at Ryou and her eyes widen and pure shock covered her face. The boy that was holding her looked very much like Ryou Bakura, but he didn't look like the innocent looking Ryou that she had come to know. He was more serious looking with narrow chocolate brown eyes, silver-white white hair that was long over his shoulders and very wild looking. She could see a dark blue aura surrounding, she sense that his aura was dark - but she didn't feel anything evil or anything... and she felt safe in his arms for some reason.
She then notice that he was looking at something - well more like glaring at something. "R-ryou?" she asked, not sure what was going on; but all she got was silences. His eyes narrowed as he held her closer to him and her heart began to beat rapidly against her chest at being so close to him and her cheeks turned a light shade of pink. "Something is coming." Bakura said in a deep voice. "Gggggrrrr" the wind stopped and they both looked up and saw a women with long blonde hair that went down her back, narrow bubblegum pink colored eyes. Her skin is fair look and she is wearing a black sleeveless mini dress, black thigh heel boots and black gloves that went just over her elbows. Next to her was a lioness with strange marking across its body. It growled at them; The women patted the lioness on the head and it purred and the women smiled at Bakura and Sakura evilly.
"I have finally found you at last... mistress of the clow."
