Well, I managed to somehow finish this chapter.. I have so much to do.. tomorrow I'm leaving for Praha, then Berlin, so I wont be able to write for a week, then there's the exhibition we're having as well as school, and the fact that there's only three weeks left until I'm moving so I barely find time to do this.. Besides.. this chapter isn't really that important, most of it is a filler, however, an important character appears :D No Judai.. because he's already here.. and it's not Yusei, because.. well, because he isn't born yet!
Visit From The Past.
Yugi looked down at the strange card he held in his hand.
"This is the card you asked for, however, why did you want to know?" Pegasus was sitting in his chair, behind his desk and eying Yugi with an amused gleam in his eyes. Yugi looked up before he took a deep breath.
"Jaden Yuki, he has some kind of connection to this card.." his voice drifted off when he noticed the strange aura that enveloped the card when he said the duelists name. Pegasus too seemed to have noticed and nodded.
"That card is strong.. however, that monsters face and voice.." he began.
"Is just like Jaden's right?" Yugi asked and Pegasus nodded, suddenly all serious, which wasn't something he usually was.
"That is just it.. do you know something?" he asked. Yugi scratched his cheek.
"Well, yeah.. but I'm not sure I'm the one who should tell you, after all, this is something only those who are really, really close to Jaden knows.." Yugi said. Pegasus nodded, silently knowing it wouldn't work trying to force Yugi to tell him, nor did he want to.
"I see, well, you can keep it until you see him, it's not like he's got an address to send it to.." at that Yugi laughed. Pegasus smiled as well, his usually childish demeanor coming back.
"Yeah, I'll keep it safe until I meet him again, I don't think it's going to be that long of waiting since we keep in touch quite regularly." Yugi explained, putting the card into his card holder for safe-keeping. Pegasus nodded before Yugi bid his farewell and left.
Atem looked up as Yugi entered the living room.
"Welcome home, did you find the card?" he asked. Yugi nodded as he came over, sitting down on the couch and pulling the card up, giving it to Atem, who took it and looked at it.
"Just as sinister as Jaden explained.. he really did look like a bad King..." Atem said. Yugi glared softly.
"It wasn't his fault, he was being used, and his friends knew." he stated.
"I know, it's just.. why didn't they realize it before it was too late?" Atem asked.
"They couldn't, Jaden did explain that they had some sort of spell on them, which rendered them unable to see Jaden's suffering.." Yugi said. He could easily picture it, after all, his friends had been controlled as well, and used against him. Atem nodded silently, knowing that he should butt in now.
"Well, what should we do with it? It's not like we can use it.." he said. Yugi nodded.
"I can't force myself to use it either, we don't have the previliege to do so, only Jaden." Yugi explained, and Atem nodded again.
"Understandable, well, let's just keep it safe until we meet him again, maybe we should send him a message and tell him we've got the card?" Atem asked. Yugi seemed to think about it for a few seconds then he picked up his phone.
"It depends on where he is, if he is somewhere I can't get in touch with him, then we'll most probably have to wait a month or so for him to come and pick it up." Yugi said, sighing. Atem smiled and leaned back against the couch, eying Yugi from the corner of his eyes. Yugi had some special gleam in his eyes today, something he always got when Jaden was around. Fondness. Everyone who knew Yugi and Jaden as friends knew that Yugi was very fond of the brunette and his skills in dueling, which showed when he downright beat Kaiba a few weeks ago. This made the CEO so shocked that he shut himself into the office the rest of that remaining week. Joey had laughed well and hard, but didn't dare fighting the Hero-deck user knowing he would loose either way.
"Well, that aside, Kaiba called earlier, he said there has been someone asking for us two.. personally.." Atem said, looking at his phone. Yugi frowned.
"Personally? Hm, that's strange, well, if he got past Kaiba he's probably a nice person.." Yugi said, smiling at Atem, who smiled back. Atem stood up, reaching out a hand to Yugi as he straightened up. Yugi took it and was suddenly pulled, maybe a little bit too hard, but fully on purpose into Atem's arms.
"A-Atem." Yugi squeaked, looking up at Atem, who smirked.
"Adorable." he simply murmured, before he leaned down, capturing Yugi's lips. Yugi's eyes widened, only to shut right away. Atem's eyes closed the moment their lips met. Their lips parted, thus the kiss heated and the two melted into each other so to speak. They parted from a moment, opening their eyes even so barely.
"A-Atem.. we need to.. go.." Yugi breathed. Atem stared back, before he kissed Yugi again, pressed so hard against him that Yugi lost his balance. The two tumbled down, ended with Yugi pressed against the couch and Atem on top, still not moving away, rather moving closer. Yugi's face heated up as he and Atem dug deeper into their little love-session. Yugi pulled away after a few minutes, panting hard.
"A-Atem, we need to leave..." he managed. Atem looked back, seemingly not able to process what Yugi had said, but then he pouted, confirming that Atem had heard him after all. Yugi raised an eyebrow, glaring, however it was fake and could only smile as Atem sat up, still pouting. Yugi sat up as well. Then he leaned in, nipping at Atem's ear.
"If you behave nicely the rest of the day, I'll treat you something nice tonight okay?" he whispered. Atem moaned loudly, then nodded, a weak blush covering his dark features. Yugi smiled and pulled away, then he stood up.
"Come on, or Kaiba will get mad at us." Yugi said, offering a hand. Atem looked up, then nodded, taking Yugi's hand.
"You called?" Yugi said when he entered Kaiba's office. Kaiba looked up, his usually cold stare telling them nothing of what was awaiting them.
"I don't care who you are aquinted with, but don't drag them to my office!" Kaiba stated, glaring. Atem glared back, making a glaring contest. Yugi ignored them both as he noticed the man sitting on the couch. He was middle aged, maybe around forty. There was visible furrows on his face, so either he had been braving the bad weather of the world to get here, or he was older than he seemed. However, he had a beard, gray, just like his hair, something that told of ages of just sitting around. The man stood up, smiling at the man, who stared back. Then he gaped.
"A.. A-A-A-A... Ak- Atem!" Yugi called. Atem snapped out of his glaring contest and gave Yugi a puzzled look.
"What?" he asked. Yugi pointed at the man, who smiled even more as it was obvious that Yugi could remember him. Those gentle eyes turned to Atem, who stood there, staring. Then, as if someone had burnt him, he yelled.
"Ah! F-father?" Atem asked, seemingly so shocked he could only stumble backwards. At this, Kaiba straightened up, giving Atem a 'are you fucking kidding?' look. The man smiled even more while Atem just continued to gape at him. Yugi too couldn't fathom why Atem's father, who, by all means didn't have any connection to their earlier battles, nor did he have a connection to their first lives.
"Father? Why are you here?" Atem asked. The man smiled.
"I had some business to do, and of course that business was to see how you were doing, and how you were handling this world." Aknamkanen said, smiling. Yugi shut his mouth and blushed when the man turned his way.
"And as always, the young one you kept drooling over all of your life.." he said. Yugi and Atem turned equally red while Kaiba looked like he wanted to throw himself out of the window right now.
"F-father.." Atem complained, obviously ashamed. His father just chuckled.
"Heba was it?" Aknamkanen asked. Yugi blushed and nodded.
"B-back then, yes, my name now is Yugi.." he stuttered.
"Hm, both means game, you always had a certain love for games, just like Atem." Anamkanen said. Yugi flushed, then he thanked the man, although shyly. Aknamkanen just smiled while Atem smirked.
"So, you were checking up on us? I thought you remained in the afterlife?" Atem asked.
"Well, when you suddenly ran of screaming about how Yugi here was in trouble, I got worried, but I can't return and go like you, at least not that easily so it took me a few years to manage it." he explained. Atem nodded.
"That makes sense.. wait, I wasn't screaming.. I was.. worried.. about Yugi and.." he stuttered, turning red. Yugi eyed his husband, then he snickered. Atem turned his head, pouting at Yugi's amused look.
"Aibou.." Atem whined through their mind link.
"Hm?" Yugi teased back.
"Don't laugh.. it's not funny.." he complained. At that, Yugi mentally laughed.
"Aw, are you embarrassed?" Yugi teased. Atem groaned through their mind link before his father called for his attention.
"However, there's more.." he said. Atem turned serious, giving him a puzzled look.
"What is it?" he asked.
"There's been some disturbance with the Gods lately.. something or someone has not only broken through to the after life, but also returned to your world." Aknamkanen said. At first this sounded just about crazy, but the others knew better. Yugi froze while he looked down. Atem frowned, then he grit his teeth.
"I have an idea who.." he muttered.
"Who?" Aknamkanen asked, a little surprised that his son already knew.
"An old enemy from the time when Yugi was King, a time long before Egypt.. he killed me and all of those close to Yugi including Yugi himself.." Atem explained. Yugi looked up at Aknamkanen and nodded. The elderly man slowly nodded.
"That would make sense.. however, why?" he asked.
"Because he has unfinished business with me." Yugi said. Aknamkanen, as well as Kaiba gave him a surprised look. Atem however, looked down, knowing that he couldn't help much here.
"Just you?" Aknamkanen asked, shocked.
"Well, yeah.. seems so, I mean, not Atem because.. because he killed Atem half a year before we finished each other off.." Yugi said, closing his eyes to calm his nerves. Atem took his hand and squeezed it. Yugi opened his eyes and turned to him, then he smiled.
"Thank you." he murmured over their mind link.
"I see.. well, he managed to get through the Gods, so he's strong, be careful." Aknamkanen said. Atem and Yugi nodded.
"Well, he has already appeared, and I'm not sure, but he is currently in jail, however, I doubt he'll stay there for long." Atem said. Kaiba snorted and all three turned to look at him.
"Something you want to say Kaiba?" Atem asked, glaring at him.
"Our system is good enough to keep one crazy guy behind bars." Kaiba stated.
"Orehmane is different Kaiba, you don't know what he is capable off.. besides, he's not crazy, his a monster.. and that is coming from someone who is half monster in genes." Atem said. Kaiba stared at him for a long minute before he just shook his head and returned to his laptop.
"If that's all your going to talk about, please do so outside of my office, because unlike you, I'm actually working." he stated. Atem rolled his eyes.
"Come on." he called. Yugi and Aknamkanen nodded and followed him, leaving Kaiba alone with his oh so precious working time.
"So, there's been a lot of trouble as of lately because of this man, however, I didn't know he also caused trouble in the after life and with the Gods.." Atem said. The three was siting in a cafe, looking like any other group of people, maybe even a family, but anyone knowing at least two, knew they weren't.
"Yes, it's become quite the hassle as of lately." Aknamkanen explained.
"Hm, that's worrisome.. however, I know what he is after, and unless we stop him, he'll most probably get it.." Atem said. Yugi slowly nodded. Aknamkanen looked from his son to Yugi, then back.
"And that is?" he asked.
"Yugi's life.." Atem answered shortly after, although just above a whisper.
"Oh.. that's bad, should he not have stopped when he died the last time?" Aknamkanen asked. Yugi sighed, looking out the window, holding around the hot chocolate he had in hand.
"We died.. together, as he stabbed my heart, I pulled him with me, of course, this isn't what he wanted, he wanted to kill me, and everyone who followed me, so that he could control my country with a steel hand.." Yugi said.
"I see, that spells trouble.." Aknamkanen stated. Atem nodded.
"Of course, if we could stop him, we would, but we have no idea how to and what will work, seeing that.. he might have pulled.. Yugi's father into this.." Atem said. Yugi's head jerked around and he gave Atem a shocked look.
"He.. he is back? I thought.. he left.." he said. Atem nodded.
"I don't think that was a lie, however, it seemed Orehmane have managed to gain control of him, which means.. Yugi, you and your mother will be in danger." Atem explained. Yugi's eyes widened, then he looked down, sadness covering his features.
"I take it, your father wasn't a good man?" Aknamkanen asked. Atem shook his head.
"He.. is an odd man.." Atem simply said. Aknamkanen nodded slowly, watching the two from his seat. Just from their expression could the ancient man understand that Yugi's father had done things that was not to be taken lightly, or forgiven.
"So, what will you do?" Atem asked after a while.
"I will most probably return to the after life and consort with the Gods on what to do, then.. I'm not sure.." Aknamkanen said, smiling. Atem sighed.
"I see.." he murmured. Yugi gave Atem a comforting look.
"Atem.." he began. Atem smiled, then he turned towards his father.
"It was great seeing you again.." Atem murmured. Aknamkanen smiled warmly.
"You too, both of you." he agreed. Yugi smiled, taking Atem's hand and gently squeezing it. Atem squeezed back, making Yugi smile a little more. The elderly man stood up, smiling at the two young men. The walked over to the door and out of it, just as Aknamkanen turned away, Atem coughed.
"I.. I'm going to miss you.." Atem began, making Aknemkanen stop and turn towards his son. There was a long silence before Aknamkanen smiled.
"And I you my dear son, I know we separated in a way that no child should experience, and for that I'm sorry.. take care now, both of you!" then he was walking away, waving over his shoulder. Atem looked after his father as he disappeared into thin air, in which, strangely enough, no one noticed, despite it being a full street. Atem stood there for a while before he turned towards Yugi.
"Well, should we head home?" he asked. Yugi smiled and nodded.
"I think that's the best.." he murmured.
Yugi looked up to realize that Atem, who had been sitting on the couch watching television while Yugi read a book, had fallen asleep. Yugi smiled at the peaceful look on Atem's face. It had been long since Yugi had seen it. Mostly because, lately, the memories, in forms of nightmares had arrived. Yugi wasn't the only one having them, only Atem's were worse, so Yugi was always happy that Atem got some extra sleep that wasn't infected with horrid memories of his time as a slave. Yugi got up and got a blanket, in which he wrapped around Atem, then walked into the kitchen to make some tea to himself. The young man looked up at the clock on the wall and realized it was already pretty late, so he dropped the idea of tea, and instead walked into the living room to find Atem mumbling in his sleep with a frown on his face. Yugi never liked that look, it spelled trouble.
"Atem." Yugi called out, sitting down beside the asleep man. Atem moved about, but didn't wake up. Yugi placed a hand on the mans shoulder and shook him. That woke him up, but with a startle. Atem gasped out as he sat up right, staring right out into the air in front. Yugi sat back, startled.
"Um.. Atem?" Yugi asked. Atem turned his head, then smiled softly.
"Sorry, did I startle you?" Atem leaned in, pulling his lover into a tight hug.
"What did you dream about this time?" Yugi asked. Atem sighed.
"One of those times I was attacked.. before I died I mean.." Yugi's face hardened at that, not looking at Atem however, so that the former Pharaoh didn't know that Yugi was having an inner fight, and a serious one to boot. Atem pulled back to see the troubled look on Yugi's face.
"Yugi? Something wrong?" he asked.
"I.. just.. I'm wondering about something, it's nothing bad, it's just.." Yugi's voice faded away as he stared past Atem's shoulder, out of the window, seemingly thinking about something. Atem leaned in.
"Yuuugi.." he coed, snapping his husband out of his thoughts. Yugi was about to ask 'what?' when Atem pressed his lips against Yugi's. Yugi complied at once, pressing himself against Atem to show that he was more than willing to go further. After a while they parted, looking into each others eyes and panting.
"Yugi.. how about giving that 'something nice' hm?" he asked, smirking. Yugi blushed deeply, then he swallowed and nodded shortly.
"Then.. um.. the bedroom.." he murmured, blushing even more. Atem nodded.
"Sure." then he stood up together with Yugi.
Yugi gasped as he was roughly turned around, then kissed on the lips like no tomorrow. They fell in a frenzy onto the bed. Atem made quick process of Yugi's clothes and his own shirt before he leaned down, biting just hard enough on one of Yugi's nipples to cause a groan to erupt from Yugi's throat. Yugi's own hands slowly lowered to Atem's own chest, feeling the muscles flex under his fingers. Yugi lowered his hands even more. Yugi unbuckled Atem's belt before opening the zipper. Atem groaned as Yugi pushed a hand down into his pants. One of Atem's hands wandered behind Yugi, squeezing his ass. Yugi keened and arched his back.
"A-Atem.." Yugi moaned. Atem smiled as he leaned down, biting Yugi's bottom lip softly, before sucking on it. Yugi blushed, and his eyes closed. Suddenly Yugi's hands moved up to Atem's shoulders before rolling them over. Atem eyed his lover with a surprised look. Yugi however, sat back, then got off the bed, heading over to a drawer, opening it. Atem sat up, eying his lover from the bed. Yugi turned, but hid whatever he held behind his back. Yugi got onto the bed again, and quickly straddled Atem, who looked up with a smirk, raising an eyebrow.
"So, what does my Aibou plan this time?" the memory of the cat tail and all that was still fresh in his mind, and he truly did want to see that again, however, he was curious as to what Yugi had in mind this time. Yugi smiled secretively and leaned down, kissing Atem. The ex-Pharaoh replied soon enough, placing his hands on Yugi thighs to keep him close. Yugi leaned forward even more, forcing Atem to lay down. Yugi pulled away from Atem's lips and sat up, looking down at Atem with lust gleaming in his eyes.
"Yugi?" Atem asked, though playful. Yugi smiled as he pulled back, settling between Atem's thighs.
"Close your eyes." Yugi said softly. Atem gave him an amused look before he closed his eyes, letting Yugi do whatever he wanted to. However, he wasn't prepared when something cold, but soft and maybe even a little wet, was pushed against him, slowly entering. Atem had to take deep breaths and keep himself calm so that he wouldn't open his eyes or get pain. After a while Yugi stopped, and Atem's eyes snapped open as his mouth former an 'o' Yugi smiled at the face his lover made.
"Aibou.. what the hell did you put in me?" he asked. Yugi blushed madly. Then he shook his head, straddling Atem again.
"You'll see love." Yugi whispered, leaning down and kissing him. Atem complied, however, a moan broke through. Yugi sat back up, rubbing his ass against Atem's very hard member. Atem groaned. Yugi smiled pushed back against the cock. Atem grabbed Yugi's thighs before pushed him so hard against himself that he entered Yugi, who gasped and straightened up.
"A-Atem.." Yugi moaned. Atem smirked, thrusting his hips upwards. Yugi gasped and rocked. Atem smiled.
"Is it good?" he asked. Yugi blushed, but nodded. Suddenly Yugi lifted something, it was small and seemed about the half the size of a phone.
"Yugi?" he asked. Yugi smirked, then pressed on the device. Atem, not prepared, gasped, arched and shouted in surprise as his whole body was startled by a buzz. Yugi smirked, then moaned when Atem moved under him. Atem squirmed and moaned, while Yugi reached down, playing with Atem's chest. Atem tried roll his body to the side, but the buzz only intensified and Atem fell back, moaned loudly. Yugi moaned as well before he began to move, lifted himself up, then sinking down against Atem, who groaned. Atem's hands went out, clutching the sheets under them as his eyes widened.
"Oh God.. Yugi.." he gasped. Yugi smiled, rocking against Atem's cock, then he gasped as well. Atem let Yugi raise himself up, but when he did, Atem only pulled him down again, harder for every time. Yugi soon squirmed, his length weeping from the lack of attention and the sudden pleasure. Atem suddenly gasped and arched when Yugi pressed on the device again. Atem glared, teary-eyed at him. Yugi smiled back, then he pressed a final time, turning it to max. Atem's eyes widened dangerously as he arched, a half-choked scream mixed with a roar erupted from his throat.
"Yugi!" he called out as his head thrashed from side to side. Yugi's hands was rest on Atem's chest as he too could feel the buzz through Atem. Suddenly Atem gasped and came, filling up Yugi, who screamed as he was pulled down hard. Yugi's head fell back as he came as well. Atem groaned, slumping, but still twitching from the pleasure that still rocked his body. Yugi smiled and turned off the device, then he pulled away, then gently pulled out whatever Atem had out of him. Atem groaned and slumped against the sheets, sweating. Yugi smiled, then noticed Atem was opening his eyes, eying him and the device in his hands.
"Aibou.." Atem breathed. Yugi smiled devilishly. Atem smirked back.
"So this is the 'something nice' huh?" he asked. Yugi smiled.
"Well, how was it?" Yugi asked innocently. Atem smirked and sat up, grabbing Yugi and pulling him closer, kissing him. Yugi let go of the device and wrapped his arms around Atem.
"I love you." Yugi whispered as they parted. Atem smiled.
"I love you too Yugi, forever.." he whispered back. The two fell down onto the bed, just resting and cuddling each other. Atem pulled the sheets over them, pulled Yugi closer before they both fell asleep, smiled on their faces.
Weee.. and ending it with smut :D That's so like me.. typical, having no other idea on how to end the chapter, I write lemon instead.. *sigh*
I really feel that this is becoming really complicated.. a lot more than necessary.. but I'll try to work it out ^^0
I hope you will review, because I'd really appreciate it :)
