*He nods enthusiastically* Sounds like a great idea, mou hitori no boku!

 Well, I can’t help but being grateful- if it wasn’t for you, I would’ve probably remained the same whimpy kid I was for so long. When you came along, I think everyone’s lives changed a lot, and for the better, so there’s no way I couldn’t thank you.

*He smiles.*

They missed you a lot, too. They could move on quicker than me, but I could really tell that they understood how I felt because of how fond they were of you- specially Anzu and Jonouchi-kun. Before this Dimentia thing happened, we were all set for finishing high school, so other than planning what to do by ourselves, we were as close as ever, so you don’t have to worry about them.

[laughs] Aibou it’s hard to believe that I made a really big change in you and your friend’s lives. [pauses] Well, I guess I can see it.

[feels guilt] Of course. Did Anzu still want to go into…ah what was it…dance? And what did you decide on what you wanted to do, aibou?

Of course you changed us…I mean, you were so much more outspoken than me, so Jonouchi-kun learned a lot from you, from duels to practical stuff; and Anzu admired and liked you a lot, as did Honda, and as I did.

*Sees the guilt on her expression.* Hey… *squizes her fingers reasuringly* We all did miss you, but we were all okay with what had happened, so don’t look like that.

Ah…Anzu didn’t ever drop her dream, so she kept on working hard to go to Broadway. As for me, well… I can’t say that I was completely set on something. College seemed like a nice idea, but the option of becoming a profesional duelist always seemed to call out to me; *A melancholic smile* it was a little sad that it reminded me a lot of you, but I still wanted to see if I could give that a try.

  Thank you for understanding. I thought I had been weak for missing you, but…It’s releiving to hear this from you. Thanks.

…You were possesive? *He tilts his head* Hm, I hadn’t thought of it that way— but anyways, you didn’t really kill them all; they were mostly horrible people who made the mistake to mess with you, and you couldn’t help it if your thinking wasn’t clear back then. What’s done is done, you know?

And I’m not so wonderful— I mean, I try to be a good person, but it stops there..*an awkward laugh, as he rubs the back of his head sheepishly.*

*Now, instead of this nostalgic feeling, Yugi’s feeling butterflies again- even though her hand- a Dark Signer’s touch-  feels cold, he can grasp a very sweet feeling from it. Caring, subtle and nice. He remembers feeling this before, and happy memories invade him. He smiles at Atem and takes her free hand the same way she had taken his.*

No, it’s okay like this, don’t you think? I mean, I miss the mind-link, but this is also really nice. We don’t know what the other is thinking right now, but that’s not a problem, because we know each other so well, and because it’s more thrilling to find out what the other is thinking.

I don’t think you are weak, Yuugi. If you were weak you wouldn’t of been able to beat me in our Duel.

[laughs] Yes, just a tad. You were the first light and contact I had had in many years. I wanted to protect you. But you’re right. There’s no use on me dwelling on it.

But you are, aibou. I don’t know how but you manage to see the good in almost everyone. You don’t hold grudges and I don’t think I’ve ever seen you angry.

You think, aibou? Okay…[looks at Yuugi with an amused smile] what are you thinking right now?

*He laughs* Looking back on it, I can’t beleive how things worked out at the end— we kept predicting each other’s moves, and kept on messing the other’s strategies. Up to this day, I don’t think I’ve had a duel as incredible as that one, you know!

Well- I guess I should thank you again, then. For keeping me safe, even if you had your extreme ways of doing so. You also kept my friends safe, so you did a lot for me- thank you so much.

Yeah, I think so… And what I’m thinking? Hm. *He smiles back, and squizes Atem’s fingers* I like this situation a lot. I’m really happy we got to this point!

I don’t think I have either, aibou. Maybe after all of this stuff is sorted out we can duel again? See who will come out the winner the second time.

[shakes head] Don’t thank me. It’s just. Something I had to do. You all never did any thing wrong, so I never understood why your friends were always targeted.

Yeah. [closes eyes] I am too.


Oh, how was everyone? I mean, before you got sucked here? Anzu and the rest?

*He nods enthusiastically* Sounds like a great idea, mou hitori no boku!

 Well, I can’t help but being grateful- if it wasn’t for you, I would’ve probably remained the same whimpy kid I was for so long. When you came along, I think everyone’s lives changed a lot, and for the better, so there’s no way I couldn’t thank you.

*When Atem lets her head fall and says those words, Yugi gets this sad, nostalgic feeling again. He almost reluctantly let go of Atem’s shoulders to cup her cheeks to gently make her look up again. He manages a smile.*

 Look…I’m making a big deal out of what happened after the Ceremonial Duel; you did what you had to do, and you fought with all you had; If you hadn’t, you wouldn’t have been true to yourself, and same goes for me… so I guess we were both doing the right thing, and at the same time, the wrong. As much as I would’ve liked to, I couldn’t rely on you for everything, and I had to understand that. I was able to mature a lot thanks to all that I went through, but I’m okay now. The lonliness didn’t last long— not that I didn’t miss you, beleive me, I did that a lot more than I was supposed to…

*His look softens.*

Mou hitori no boku…if this is a punishment from your Gods, then it’s unfair. You were only acting on your emotions, and that’s a perfectly human thing to do. You really don’t deserve all the trouble you’re going through.

And hey, don’t worry. Like you said, they were all idiots— I’m gonna’ have to agree that the Yami no Games and the killing was twisted, but I can also understand that you had your  good intentions, and that you never really harmed the innocent. So you’re not that bad.

I think after spending some odd years with a spirit inhabiting your body and then that spirit suddenly going back to the Afterlife…I think you’re allowed to miss them, aibou. [smiles sadly] I’m glad, though. It didn’t prevent you from moving on.

The Gods never really played fair to begin with. I mean, I was viewed as a God myself. I’m assuming I was not supposed to act “human” more so act like a God?

…yes but. It didn’t really give me a reason to kill them. Being trapped in the Puzzle for three thousand years clouded my thinking. It made me a little possessive over you.

Aibou, you are truly a wonderful person. [takes one of Yuugi’s hands an intertwines it with hers] It kind of sucks we don’t have our mind link any more.

  Thank you for understanding. I thought I had been weak for missing you, but…It’s releiving to hear this from you. Thanks.

*Yugi cringes a little when Atem mentions the afterlife.* No… that’s alright. Truth be told, I’m really happy to have you here.

*He pulls out from the hug, but is holding Atem’s shoulders, and is now looking up to her.* I think I should be apologizing all over again, though. Mou hitori no boku, you were right about everything you said once you came back. You told me that I hadn’t asked you anything, and I sent you to a rest you didn’t ask for…so I’m really sorry. About that, and that you came back with so much rage, and also that you had to go through that thing about becoming a girl. You don’t deserve all this stuff happening at once, and I’m the one to blame here….

And don’t worry! *A little laugh* Everytime I had a trouble, you helped me in a way or another. I’m not getting hurt, because I’m going to help you with any aftermath that comes with this deal. We’re still the team we’ve always been, Mou hitori no boku. And I’m really happy, and really glad to say all of this.

[lets head fall] Yuugi…you didn’t have any idea. It’s not like I was openly against it. I let it happen. I could’ve easily said no to the Duel or forfeited and said I didn’t want to leave. …I did neither of those things.
And you were upset and I couldn’t do anything about it and I left you alone and…[trails off]

I think it’s the Gods that are punishing me for this. [looks up with a melancholic look] I deserve it, no less. I pushed them aside for a new God.

You had those idiots in school…but the rest was really my doing. You would have never had to duel against Marik or had to deal with Doma if it wasn’t for me. [shakes head] I didn’t really help you more than challenge them to Yami no Games and kill them and leave you in the alley or something, having you to deal with waking up to some dead body near and blood all over you.

Aibou…

*smiles warmly.* I’m really glad I can still get to be your aibou. Truth be told, it felt weird not hearing that word since you were…well, since I made you gone. *The last words were said with a hint of guilt—even sadness.*

I don’t think I care about you being a Dark Signer at all— I mean, yes, you scared me when you first apeared before me, but that also happened when I first released you from the puzzle. After thinking about it, I was just glad that you were back.

Hey…at the end, you didn’t kill me. And you haven’t dissapeared or anything. You’re safe. You’re here and being like this, and nothing else matters for now. *A very small smile*

*When Atem’s forehead is against his shoulder, Yugi tightens the hug, holding Atem’s head gently with one arm, and his back with the other. He wants to be as comforting as posible.* You’ve always been normal to me. Better than normal, if I’m honest- I don’t think the water or anything has to do anything with this, I think you’re finally opening yourself, and you have no idea how glad that makes me, Mou hitori no boku.

[shakes head] I wasn’t gone for long…was I? How long was I gone in your time?

I don’t know, aibou. [tightens hold on Yuugi a tad] I made a deal. If deals are broken there are usually consequences.  I’m so sorry.

[smiles] Aibou when have you not been honest. [laughs] It…makes you glad? I’m not sure…it’s weird. This opening up. I’ve always been okay with closing everyone and everything off from myself. I felt like that was the best way to go about things.

Maybe not, Yuugi. Maybe not.

About a year, I think…  I somehow managed, but beleive me, it took a lot to do so. You were with me for so long I had almost forgoten what it felt like— not having someone to talk to every morning, afternoon or night when no one was around, or just feeling you were there… *Yugi notices that he’s getting a bit too personal and melancholic, so he shakes his head slowly to stop himself from talking more about it.*

 *Yugi lets his hold on Atem relax a little. He rests his head near Atem’s.* You shouldn’t apologize, you’ve nothing to apologize for. After all, as you said when you came back, you would’ve done anything to get back here, so no one can blame you or your choises. It’s okay, and if there are consequences, I’m more than ready to stand up for them with you, like it’s always been.

And you shouldn’t feel weird. It’s really nice that you’re opening up…I feel like I’m getting to know you all over again, and that makes me really happy, you know.

[shakes head] Yuugi…I have to apologize. That’s not even enough. If I had just stayed in the Afterlife…

I can’t let you stand beside me while I deal with my punishment. This is mine and mine alone. I’m not going to let you get hurt.

All over again, huh. I suppose that is right. If it makes you happy, aibou, then so be it.

*Yugi cringes a little when Atem mentions the afterlife.* No… that’s alright. Truth be told, I’m really happy to have you here.

*He pulls out from the hug, but is holding Atem’s shoulders, and is now looking up to him.* I think I should be apologizing all over again, though.

Oh…no, I never felt obligated. At first it was perfect, since I just thought you were…well, mou hitori no boku.  But then it just grew as some kind of nickname only you could have, and it’s meaning kind of doesn’t matter as much now because it’s yours, and it brings back really good memories… *a sheepish smile* So if you don’t mind, you’re still my Mou hitori no boku. Until it starts bothering you.

*when Yugi gets hugged so suddenly, he can’t help but to feel a little shaky. Even back in the time when he was with him, before Dimentia and everything, Atem hadn’t done this. There are butterflies in his stomach and his face is warm and red from really heavy blushing.*

N-No…there’s no real need to apologize. *He hugs back, relaxing a little. He closes his eyes and sighs* You were just so angry. You needed to let it out, and you did, and now you’re normal again, so everything was worth it. There’s also nothing to thank me about. I’m just…I’m just really glad you’re being your old self again. I mean it.

It was really the only name I had, but.. If I’m still your mou hitori no boku, then you’re still my aibou. It won’t bother me, Yuugi.

But Yuugi, I’m not normal. I’m still a Dark Signer. I came back to kill you. That’s how we work. We come back for revenge and kill whoever we want revenge against and then disintegrate into dust.

[lets forehead fall against Yuugi’s shoulder] Do I seem normal to you? I feel like I’m only like this because I feel in the damn water. [sighs] If you say I’m normal, then I must be.

*smiles warmly.* I’m really glad I can still get to be your aibou. Truth be told, it felt weird not hearing that word since you were…well, since I made you gone. *The last words were said with a hint of guilt—even sadness.*

You didn’t mean that? Well…I’m curious, now. Could it be that you don’t like it anymore when I call you ‘Mou Hitori no boku’? I mean, it’s understandable since you have a given name now, so you can be open with me about it…

*a quiet laugh*

Yeah, Timaeus was pretty enthusiastic back there. Can’t really blame him, though, since he had been trapped as a dragon for so long…I can only imagine how excited he gets when he finally finds an interest and can play with it in his human form. I’m really happy for him.

…I’m really sorry you feel like that. *his hand hasn’t left Atem’s shoulder. When he says the following, he squizzes it gently.* But hey, knowing Yusei-kun, he’s bound to find a cure. And when he does, you and everyone else that might be troubled from the water will be just fine, I promise you. And if this drags on for longer, you can count on me for anything, alright? I’m right by your side.

I meant…ahhh. [runs a hand through her hair] I just thought you were just doing it because you felt like you had to. But if you aren’t, then…I mean if you want to call me mou hitori no boku then you can. Or if you want to call me Atem then that’s fine too… It doesn’t really matter.

I guess. I wish he’d go bother someone else instead of me. I think he gets some weird pleasure embarrassing me.

[grabs Yuugi’s arm and pulls him forward, hugging him] Thank you, Yuugi. I’ve been such a…I don’t think there’s even a word to how terrible I was to you when I first came back. But…thank you.

Oh…no, I never felt obligated. At first it was perfect, since I just thought you were…well, mou hitori no boku.  But then it just grew as some kind of nickname only you could have, and it’s meaning kind of doesn’t matter as much now because it’s yours, and it brings back really good memories… *a sheepish smile* So if you don’t mind, you’re still my Mou hitori no boku.
