*****Hi all! My first Yu-Gi-Oh! But that doesn't mean I'm inexperienced, mind you ^_~
Anyway, the first part may be kind of boring, but I promise you, it does get better (I do actually know this because I already wrote many chapters after this one)
So, please bear with me on this, my first actual Yu-Gi-Oh fic ^_^******
Millenium Heart ~* Prologue *~
"Spare some change?" A ragged old man held out an old can full of holes to a random passer-by. He looked snobby, but at this hour at night, he'll take what he can get.
"Get a life ya bum!" He kicked that can away and walked away, mumbling something under his breath.
The old man sighed and patiently picked up the can. It was the dark night and he hadn't had much luck tonight. He picked up the quarter that had flown out from the can. "Maybe tomorrow." He smiled down at the kitty purring at his feet. The yellow cat looked just as ragged and hungry as the old man. The old man wandered over to the corner where he had sat a few moments ago and picked up the blanket spread out on the ground. He carefully folded the dirty blanket into a neat square and picked it up, tucking it under one arm. Grabbing the can in his other hand, he started his journey to find somewhere to sleep for the night.
There was a sudden bright light that interrupted the blackness of the night. The old man recoiled, dropping his precious can to the ground, while the cat hissed and hid behind the old man's legs. A bright blue swirly vortex appeared on the ground. The man tried to move his legs, but they were paralyzed from fright. Something was coming out of the vortex! First it looked like a towel, then, he would make out a tanned face and large gold earings. As the figure appeared more, the old man could tell he was wearing a white rob and held two gold objects around his neck. The figure's eyes were closed and remained that way even as the vortex under his bare feet closed and he stepped onto the ground.
The old man found his courage and took a careful step towards the figure. Suddenly, the closed eyes opened to reveal empty blue eyes that glared at the old man, but not truely acknowledging his presence. "I sensed a strong magic nearby." He muttered to himself. He blinked his blue eyes and finally took notice of the trembling man before him. "Where can I find Yugi Motou?"
The old man cocked his head. "W-Who?"
The figure sighed and shook his head. "Where is the nearest game shop?"
The old man thought a moment before answering. "It's not too far. There's lots in the city."
"I'm looking for the one owned by Solomon Motou."
"I don't kn- Wait! Sarah did say something about someone famous across the yellow bridge and to the right..."
"Please direct me to this 'bridge' and I will ask from there."
A dirty finger pointed straight down the road. "Just keep goin' straight till you see the big pond, then make a right and keep going straight. You'll see the yellow bridge there."
The man's eyebrow's furrowed. "How do I know when I see this 'bridge'?"
The old man stared in awe. Who WAS this man who didn't even know what a bridge was? "It's something that stretches over water to carry you over to the other side."
The strange man thought about it and finally nodded. "I thank you." He turned his back on the old man and continued on the way he had been told. The old man gathered his courage and called out, "Hey, who are you and where are you from?"
The strange man stopped and looked at the old man from the corner of his eye. "Where I am from is of no importance to you, and as for my name, it is Shadi."
With that, he left the old man to watch in wonder as he disappeared into the darkness.
I'm well aware that Shadi can sense where the magic is, but this is a special occasion, kay? So bear with me on this ^_^
And chaters to get longer, prologues are usually short, right?
