UPDATE 7/18/2007 Hey everyone. It's been awhile, but I'm going to be re-uploading edited versions of each chapter, ending, hopefully, with the first new one in a very, very long time. Hope you enjoy!

I rolled over on the couch, tossing my arm over my eyes to protect them from the harsh winter light that glared in through the living room window. I'd been staring at it since nine that morning and though the burning sensation in my eyes had gone away long ago, it wasn't helping me get any more comfortable. The restlessness that settled in my stomach unsettled me – comfort had always been in my reach in most situations.
Giving up all hope, I stood and stretched. Grandpa was in the store performing last minute checks on the remaining merchandise. Due to a surge in Duel Monster's popularity, the store needed to expand to keep up with business and he had decided it was best to close the place down, get the work done as soon as possible, and plunge right back in. At the right price, of course. This inevitably led to his going out of town in search of a cheaper contractor—and my being alone with Yami for two weeks.
The very idea didn't bother me the least in principle, but the implications were disturbing. Sure, I couldn't ask for a better person to have for company, but a recent realization I'd come to about Yami and I sort of… changed things.
Unless you thought love affected diddly squat. If that's the case, you have no right to read this because you are a cold and ignorant person. Of course love affects things! Why else would I wander around in loose cargo pants instead of tight leather ones?
Sighing, I walked across the room and leaned against the window pane to watch the cars drive by. The idea that I loved Yami, Yami a man, had been quite the shock at first. It wasn't as if I hadn't had crushes on girls, because I had. I'd just never been led to believe I felt otherwise. Except for the occasional mental thoughts that joined together the words "Yami" and "Good-looking." I was surprised I hadn't picked up on those.
After figuring it out myself, I doubted most people would be surprised. And not just because Yami was… well, Yami, but because looking back on everything we'd been through, it was like a romance mini-series. It had everything; the devotion, the occasional fights, betrayal, jealousy…. If that didn't sound like a cliché chick flick, I didn't know what did.
The only place the analogy fell through was that the main couple had yet to get together! I mean, it was only now at 17, two years after we met, that I even realized I had feelings for him! Didn't that say something? Yes, yes it did. It said that the people who wrote the script of my life need to move it along or DIE.
That thought in mind, I'd decided to try taking things into my own hands. If fate wasn't going to intervene, I planned to do all that I could to make it happen on my own. If I had to fly on a plane, lose all my money and possessions, or run naked through a filming of the news, I would make Yami love me.
I would seduce him.
The only problem there was…. I had no idea where to start. I knew I could just walk up to him, kiss him, and proclaim my undying love but that was just a little too easy. I wanted to feel accomplished once I made him mine! I was pretty innocent in some ways of the world, but that didn't make me stupid. I knew the game and I and was gonna win.
But first… Breakfast! I couldn't possibly plot without a good meal first… That in mind, I smiled turned from the window. Grandpa would be leaving soon and then—then the fun would begin.
Okay, I don't know where this really came from, but I like the idea! I mean, Yugi's always considered the innocent one, but I always thought that if either of them was going to seduce one another, it would be Yugi, cuz Yami would have all those restrictions about 'not tainting goodness' or something like that. -- ANYway... Yugi does seem a little out of character, but he's older, and he's in love! Craziness always insues at that combination. So, please let me know what you think and if I should even bother working on this! .
