Chapter 1: Yami meets the Family
"Yami come on! We are going to be late!!"
"Yugi calm down!"
Yugi and Yami were standing outside a house in the country. Yami inwardly
sighed as he thought of what was to come.
"Yami stop daydreaming!"
Yami finished getting their bags out of the Taxi, and the Taxi sped away.
Yami couldn't help but think that was his last chance to get away.
"Yami!!" Yugi yelled again "Come on!"
'Easy for him to say' Yami thought 'I'm the one carrying all the luggage'
Yugi bounced up to the house, and eagerly knocked on the door. Yami
followed much slower, since he was weighed down from the bags. 'Maybe no
one is home' Yami thought desperately. No such luck.
The door opened, and there stood an old woman with neatly permed hair, and
a white apron on. She was the same height as Yugi.
"OH! Yugi how nice to see you! You look so handsome!" Yugi and the old
woman hugged, and then continued talking. "How is your Grandfather?"
"Oh he's fine, and he apologizes for not being able to come visit. Is
dinner ready yet Grandma? I am very hungry"
"Its almost ready. Why don't you come in and say hi to everyone else?"
The two walked into the house. Yami tried to follow, but he ran into a
closed door. The suitcases were piled up so high that he couldn't see where
he was going. Both of his hands had many bags too, so he couldn't knock.
What was he supposed to do?
Yugi walked into the house, and hugged his family. They had a lot of
catching up to do, and the questions never stopped coming to Yugi. Suddenly
several question came at him.
"Where is your stuff?"
"How is your love life?"
"Weren't you going to bring someone for us to meet?"
Yugi gasped, and ran off leaving some very confused people behind him. Not
to be left out, the ones that could still walk followed Yugi to the door.
Yugi opened the door, to find an amazing sight. Yami was still standing
there, and with all the bags.
"Oh my goodness! I am so sorry Yami! I.." Yugi was cut off by some loud
gasps from behind him.
The relatives closed in on poor Yami.
Some of the nicer ones took the bags, and left to go put them in an extra
room, but others practically bombarded Yami. Yami had never before been
subjected to such torture. His cheeks were pinched red, his ribs squeezed
into a million pieces, and his hands hurt from the older men's large hands.
'Wonderful start to the weekend' Yami thought as he was pulled into the
house. Yugi kept sending him apologizing looks, and Yami soon forgave him.
The warm welcome ceased suddenly as another woman entered the living room.
This was the woman that Yami had been warned about. Yugi's Great Aunt. The
woman was short (that seemed to run in the family), and had a messy pile of
gray hair on top of her head.
She was also rather large, and had cold gray eyes. The said pair of eyes
were currently observing Yami, slowly and painfully. They seemed to scowl
"So.."The woman's voice was gravely, "Yami was it?"
Yami nodded and tried to swallow.
"What are you planning on doing with your life? Are you going to college?
You had better not ever do anything wrong to Yugi. You had better not make
him waste his life on you either. His family won't be around forever, and
you had better be able to provide for him. Do you make good grades? I bet
you don't. I bet you are going no where with life."
Yami had been warned about these questions and comment, but it was still
hard to take them. He tried to answer, but found his voice going dry.
"Auntie, don't pick on Yami please," Yugi came to Yami's rescue. Yugi put
on his most effective puppy dog eyes he had, and sure enough it worked.
"Okay everyone come and sit down! Dinner is ready!" Yugi's grandmother
called from the kitchen.
Yami let out a sigh of relief, and followed the crowd to the table. 'So far
Dinner went by pretty uneventful. The family seemed to accept Yami, except
for the old Aunt. She glared at Yami through the entire dinner. Yami did
his best to try and ignore her, but he still dropped food everywhere. By
the time dinner was over, Yami's clothes were an unrecognizable color.
After dinner Yami helped with washing the dishes. Yugi encouraged him to
help out as much as possible, and participate. He said that it would make
Yami appear better in the family's eyes. Yugi also told Yami to avoid
playing games; this of course was not going to happen.
Yami entered the living room to find the family gathered around a card
table with dominoes. Yami had never seen this game before, and began to
watch intensely. Pretty soon he was sure he had the game down, too bad he
couldn't try it out though. The game ended with one of the old uncles
"Do you wanna play there Yami?" One of the relatives asked.
"No thank you" he answered in a polite tone.
"Oh come on now! What? Are you afraid you are going to lose?" The uncle
Yami cringed. It was starting to sound like a challenge. He absolutely
couldn't refuse that.
"He knows he is going to lose to me!" Another person boasted.
Yami couldn't stand it any longer. He was about to accept, when a hand
covered his mouth. The boasting continued, while Yugi's hand covered Yami's
mouth. Yami licked the hand, and Yugi jerked away, but before Yami could
answer, another voice cut in.
"He will play, and so will I" The great aunt said with finality.
The entire family, including Yami and Yugi, gulped.
The game was one of the hardest Yami had ever played. Yugi had told him
that it was probably better to lose, and boy did Yami try! It just couldn't
happen though and Yami won.
The family gasped as he laid his last piece down. Silence followed. Finally
a sound from the great aunt. She clapped. There was a few more moments of
stunned silence before the family irrupted with cheers.
"Well done Yami. Now just worry about taking good care of Yugi" The old
woman patted him on the back, and gave him a hug.
"Yes Ma'am" Yami smiled. He had succeeded!
Shortly following the game, everyone went to bed.
Yami sighed happily, as he wrapped his arms around Yugi. He had gotten
through day one of the family reunion!
Hehe.. Not very funny yet, but it will get there. The story isn't done with
just Yami, oh no..We still have Yami Bakura and Seto. Actually it may not
get that far. It depends on if I finish my other fic, and if anyone likes
this one! Please review if you can, and thank you for reading!
