A/N: NOT A CHAPTER, JUST THE PROLOGUE. ALSO, DON'T MIND FLAMING, AS IT'S FOOD FOR THE SOUL, AND I LIKE SPICE ANYWAY.


"Whichever version of hell this is, it's certainly not where I had anticipated waking up."

All around him was death and destruction. Fires raged rampant, dead bodies lay in the streets, there appeared to be not a soul left here, in what supposedly was once a beautiful city.

"I wonder what sort of people invaded this time? Or perhaps this is a dream? Yeah, it probably is, why else would I have no memory until just a few moments ago? And be wearing this strange device on my left arm?"

There came no response from the burning abyss that surrounds him.

"Heck, I can't even remember who I am." He stated.

"I wonder why I'm here? Here in this nightmare."

Again there came no response.

"I wonder if I was born or created? Either way, I really do appear to be quite the loquacious person."

Then came a slashing, biting, cold and wind, and went the fire that surrounded him.

"Something paranormal is afoot." Stated He.

The buildings sunk into the ground, and the floor disappeared, a suffocating, pitch-dark blackness is all that remained.

"Wow, it's really dark in here."

"It's intended to be this dark." came a deep voice.

"What?! Who are you?! Where are you?! Show yourself!" He demanded.

"You have no reason to know that now. What's important is why you are here." The unknown stranger boomed.

"What is my purpose for being here?" He asked.

"It involves the object on your left arm. That object, it is a device known as a Duel Disk, in your world it is what makes dueling possible."

"Duel disks? I have heard of such things, from where I remember this I don't know, but I do know that the game of Duel Monsters is played with them. But, doesn't Duel monsters require cards? If it does, then I can't help you, for I don't appear to have any cards." He stated.

"That's because you don't. Your power is something amazing, something so powerful that it may change the course of history. I have brought you here to give that stagnant power the freedom to do as it wishes, so that you may fulfill what you have been born to do. With my power, I give you a deck with the very spirit of Dark Light. May you use it well."

A deck of cards manifested on his disc.

"I shall use your gift wisely. But may I ask one thing?"

"You shall."

"Who am I?"

"You are whoever you want to be, Yuseth Kisarma."
