Catastrophic Christmas'Can't believe I agreed to work with these morons!' Kaiba scowled at the three sorry co-workers he had for the day. 'Which idiot volunteered us for this anyway?!' "I thin-"
"Who put you in charge?" Bakura butted in, glaring angrily. The clock on the wall on said 6:30 a.m. and he had gotten into the habit of sleeping late.
"My house, my money, my tree." 'I should give him the worst job.' "Ryou's in charge of decorations, Tristan gets the tree, and Bakura can cook."
The first two mention nodded, but the former Yami scowled. "How the hell is that fair? What are you going to do?"
"I moved the decorations and tree in, I bought the food, and now I have to get to the air port." He was shrugging on a heavy coat, ready to brave the harsh winter.
"What do we do if Rin wakes up?" Ryou asked, his voice echoing in the empty place.
"Rin stayed with Kami." 'At least I'm not leaving Wheeler or Yugi unattended in my home.'
'Shit, who was I touching on the couch last night
Misunderstanding DXT"Please?" Dawn breathed on his neck, arms wrapped tightly around him.
"I don't know..."
"Aw come on, they bothered to send me the plane tickets! That means they want to meet you!"
"Yeah..." 'More like kill me for taking their daughter.'
"I came to Domino for you."
"You didn't know me when you came to Domino."
Well you got me there.' "True, but I met your parents!"
"And they liked you." 'Until you broke the lamp. Then my mom lost it.'
"Yeah, liked until I screwed up. But my parents will deffinately love you." 'As soon as they get over the year and a half age difference and you don't mention having a motorcycle. Or that you practically live with me.'
"Are you still mad about me forgetting about your birthday?" 'Is this some kind of sick revenge?' He had been just as surprised as her when they walked in and people jumped out.
"No and I never was. Serenity did a great job on the party." 'It needed a girl's touch anyway. And then her party five d
Anything But Ordinary RXSSometimes I get so weird, I ever freak myself out
I laugh myself to sleep, it's my lullaby
Sometimes I drive so fast, just to feel the danger
I want to scream, it makes me feel alive
Rin was practically bouncing in the passenger seat, staring out at the vast park. But not just any park; the world's largest amusement park! Kaiba was driving like a maniac, but that was nothing new.
The brunette glanced in the rear view mirror; Atem and Kina were both using Mokuba as a pillow on either side. That had been her only condition to watch him for the day, she got to bring a friend. At the time he had rolled his eyes and agreed, now hoping it was worth having that scum in his car.
"Holy crap!" Rin cried as he pulled in the parking lot. "It's soooooo crowded!" 'And I'm hungry!'
He gave a crooked smile, pulling a dozen donuts out of the glove box. "Well, atleast we have something to do while we wait."
"You said you wouldn't stop for food!"
"I didn't, bought these last night so I'd kn
Reasons Why RXBXKXMXMIn the company of strangers I am less than fine
I am turning into wall paper before your eyes
Somehow I always end up on the wrong side of this fight
One day I will get it right
Sixteen. The was the magic number for getting out of the state, out of the country. The age so that her parents finally let go enough to see her as a young adult.
A sigh slipped pass her lips as she dialed her friend's number again. 'What happened to the punctual Dawn I used to know?' Maybe living in the city had corrupted her. "What took you so long?" She asked as the still familiar brunette approached.
A grin fell into place. "Nice to see you too. And you can blame Tristan for my being late, he had to use my car to get to work."
'Great, looks like we're stuck walking.'
"Can't believe you finally dyed your hair, it looks great."
"Almost gave my dad a heart attack too." The look on his face seeing her waist length hair red and black was priceless. "Mom liked it though."
"Of course she would
No Regrets Ch. 30"Sandy, wake up!" Kami pulled her out of the bed impatiently. "Bakura said we're getting ready to leave."
"Huh?" The word 'leave' had barely registered in her mind. "What are you talking about?"
"We're finally going to attack the palace! He wants to hurry up so that another rebellion can't break out. Now get up, we're going to need you!"
"Ok, ok. I'm up." She stumbled up, following the other three groggily. 'Great, I don't have very much experience and I'm tired. I'm an easy target.' She leaned against the blonde for support, suddenly wide awake once the cheering started. 'Did I miss anything important?'
The sudden surge of make shift soldiers out of the door was an apparent yes. 'I guess that's what I get for being lazy.' The crowd pulled her the right direction though, and soon it was a march across the dessert.
'I'm helping a mad man kill someone I vaguely know...' A fresh wave of guilt washed over her. 'But atleast if he succeeds, maybe I c
No Regrets Ch. 29Feral Imp was a pain to send away. The trapped feeling after sealing him away was hard to cope with. It was like something was tearing with its claws to get out, like it might tear Sandy open at any given moment.
"How do you guys feel when your ka leaves?" She asked, gulping down a glass of water.
"Relieved." Kami muttered. "Shai-Nefer is a constant reminder of my weaknesses."
'Really? She kinda creeped me out, but looks really strong.'
"I don't like it when he leaves." Kasumi said, nodding to herself. "He makes me feel safe."
"Yeah, Venus makes me feel like I'm wanted, like I fit in." Rin agreed, chowing down on grapes.
'So Kami is the only one happy when her ka is gone? I wonder what scares her though, for me it's deffinately the snake hair. Way too creepy for me.' "I think it's like losing a part of yourself when they're gone."
"More like gaining a part since they're back inside of you." Rin corrected.
"I guess, but it feels like my favorite cat just died or something.
We Are Broken EXMI am outside And I've been waiting for the sun
With my wide eyes I've seen worlds that don't belong
My mouth is dry with words I cannot verbalize
Tell me why we live like this
"Elodie." His tone was light and she didn't understand, just kept right on unbuttoning her shirt. "Elodie, stop it!" Malik finally snapped, pinning her arms to the couch easily. "Stop trying to take off your clothes."
This was a first, don't take off your clothes?! "Why not?" She demanded, trying to break his vice like grip.
'Why not?' He stared at her for a moment, letting it sink in. "What do you mean, why not?!"
"Why don't you want to sleep with me?"
He sighed and crawled off of her, releasing her wrists. "Because this is our first date?" Not much of a date, the popcorn was lying on the floor, no one had even bothered to press play for the movie.
She tilted her head to the side, genuinely confused. "So?"
The Egyptian shook his head, moving into the kitchen to grab his jacket. "C
