Leaning against the wall, I sighed with bordom. Johan... Yelled at me yesterday, and dragged me out of the basement, and locked it. Seriously, he really sealed the Gem Beasts away. I got to talk to them, but then one subject lead to another, and... Yeah, we kept talking, until Johan came in to ruin all the fun. Hane Kuriboh and Yubel never appeared since then, but I know they're alright. I sighed, and leaned against the window... Only to see it's windy and cold outside. I gotta talk to some people here. See if they know any detail 'bout the current Johan. Obviously it isn't the Johan I knew and loved. He's kinder then this, and wouldn't lock his deck away to avoid dueling. He wouldn't glare and yellat his best friend. He wouldn't just leave his best friend behind, hanging for dueling.
In fact, he wouldn't even DARE To avoid dueling.
In fact, something must've happened. Something must've happened to Johan for him to give up Dueling altogether. Something... Terrible. I frowned. Normally Johan remains strong 'till the very end. I'd never seen Johan give up if something DID Happened. Someone must've persuaded him to give-up dueling.
If that's the case, then I'd be mad.
No doubt I'd be so mad, that Haou would take over again. I sighed, trying to calm down. Haou only takes over when I'm angry myself, so I can't let Haou do that. I won't lose my mind to the point where I kill my friends.
That happened once. I won't let it happen again.
"Yubel." I said softly.
"Yes, my prince?" Asked Yubel, appearing before me.
I looked at her in her eyes, feeling hurt, "Do you... Do you think I'd get the Johan I Knew and Loved back?"
"Of course, my prince." Replied Yubel, smiling, "Truly he still cares for you as your best friend. If he didn't, then he'd kick you out already."
I cocked my head, "What do you-"
"-Trust me. I possessed him, my prince." Yubel smiled.
I softly smiled, "Thank you, Yubel."
"You're welcome, my Prince."
She faded away, and I sighed, feeling a little bit better now.
I hope Johan will be alright.
Time for plan B then. This time, I'm gonna try and sneak into his basement. Sometime, late at night, I'm gonna sneak into his basement. This time, I'm gonna talk to his Gem Beasts some more. Get more info then what I already have. I sighed, and looked up to see Yubel there. Her glowing eyes let me know she's there. I nodded, and looked at the door that Johan placed me in. I'm in my guest room, so I gotta sneak down there... Without losing my third strike.
I jumped when the door slammed open. It was Johan. He walked up to me, and looked at me in the eyes, suspiciously. He kneeled down to my level, and I gulped.
"Can I help you, Johan?" I asked, a bit nervous. Why am I nervous?
He sighed, "Look at me in the eyes, and tell me what you're planning tonight."
I froze. Shit. I can't lie! What do I do!
'Allow me.' Whispered Yubel.
I nodded, and looked up to think for a bit.
'Dinner tonight.' Thought Yubel in my mind.
I bit my lip. I feel bad that I'd have to lie to my best friend, but to stay here and helphim, I gotta lie to him. After a full minute of staring, I grinned, "I'm planning a dinner tonight, Johan. Maybe attend dinner your dinner, or I'll bring you out. I was thinking of dinner!"
"Dinner hmm? It took you a while to respond." He said.
I gulped, and looked up for a bit, before looking into his eyes again, grinning.
'You're slow tonight.'
"I-I'm slow tonight. That's all. I'm tired... Ya know. From today's lunch?" I replied.
I tried not to advert my gaze, but his eyes are so cold, and tense. I tried not to pant, but it was so hard... Despite all the pressure, I remained calm.
He sighed, "Very well."
Relief came over me, but I tenced up again when he leaned over, glaring, "But, if I catch you plotting... Strike Three, Juudai."
He growled before standing up straight, and sighed, sweeping off imaginary dust, "Well, I'll see you at dinner." He said, giveing a soft smile. I smiled. I haven't seen Johan smile. So, it's a start. He mummbled a few words, like "Typical Juudai", or "Stupid kid". I sighed quietly in relief as he left.
I looked up to see Yubel there. I playfully glared, "Ya know, you made me lie to Johan."
"Sorry, my prince." She replied, "But you need some place to stay. I mean, it's raining outside."
I sighed, and looked out the window, "... I'm aware. I like the rain, ya know?"
"I know, my prince. However, last time you were in the rain, you caught a cold. Maybe next time you should listen to me when I say something that I know that is right for you." She said, playfully glaring at me.
I chuckled lightly, "Well, never mind. Lets go to dinner. As soon as everyone's asleep, we can go."
Yubel's eyes widen, "Wait, aren't you-"
"-It's Windy, Yubel." I said, hinting the leave.
Her eyes widen, "My prince... Are you quitting?"
I sighed... "No, Yubel... I'm gonna help him... No matter what the cost."
"I'm gonna go outside, Yubel." I said, walking out the door to my room.
Yubel frowned, "It's raining outside, my prince. Make sure you bring a coat!"
"Okay!" I yelled.
I sighed. Well, at least she still cares. Surely I don't wanna lose my Love with Yubel. I sighed again. Well, I guess I'll take my thin red one. I grabbed it before I went out.
The doorbell was ringing. I sighed, and got up to answer the door. Who could be visiting me at this time? I mean, surely I wasn't expecting any visitors here. Plus, it's raining. I hope the visitor has a thick coat on so he doesn't catch a co-Why am I so concerned about this visitor! I'm sure I don't know the guy, so why the hell am I so concerned for him? Damn.
"I'm comin'! Geez..."
I Answered the door, and leaned to one leg, not amused with this visitor.
"Manjoume Jun... Why are you here?" I asked.
Manjoume. 5th best duelist in the whole world, right here, in my house. I bet Juudai would even have a better time with him then with me.
"I heard the Drop-Out's here." He said, using the typical rude tone.
I rolled my eyes, "What? Were youthe one you were on the phone with?"
"No." He hissed, "Merely to see if he's here."
I rolled my eyes, and beckoned him, "Follow me. His room is this way."
I lead the way to the direction to Juudai's room.
I sighed as Manjoume followed me to Juudai's room. I sighed, and looked up at the ceiling, "So... How is Asuka?" I asked. I gotta keep a conversation going so I could entertain my guest.
I opened the door to Juudai's room, only to see Yubel there. On Juudai's bed, her arms crossed, and her legs crossed. I frowned, "Where's Juudai."
"My prince is outside in the garden." She replied simply, looking rather annoyed.
Anger was clear now, "Idiot!"
I ran off, leaving Manjoume alone with Yubel. It's a good thing he can see spirits too, or else he would be wondering why I was acting the way I was.
Damn it, Juudai. You're a handful.
I closed my eyes, and sighed again. I listened to the calming rain pouring down. It always did make a relaxing sound. Water is always refreshing, and cool. Especially if it's splashing in your face. I shook my head, and looked down, closing my eyes. Listening to the soft rain.
I sighed and opened my eyes and looked straigh ahead as I heard footsteps. Panting to show he was running.
"Juudai. It's raining outside. You should get back inside." A familiar voice said.
I turned around and smiled softly, "... Johan. It's windy. I should be able to leave soo-"
"-NO!" Barked Johan, causing me to jump. Well, that was unexpected. I turned to Johan, and started at him in the eyes. He frowned, "Juudai. It's raining out here. You'd be able to leave when it's notraining out here, Juudai. I don't want you to catch a cold, Juudai."
My eyes widen as I stared at Johan in the eyes... Is he serious?
He sighed in annoyance, and walked up to me, grabbed my wrist, and started to pull me in. I almost froze to the point to where he had to dragme in... Almost. However, my legs obeyed, and followed Johan right inside his house.
Is Johan... Concerned for me?
I sighed, and looked out before we walked in. I guess I'll enjoy the rain another time.
Once inside, while drying ourselves off, Johan looked at me, and sighed, "Juudai... You have a visitor."
I blinked, and tilted my head.
"A... Visitor?" I asked.
I wonder who the visitor is.
