"Sometimes, the one place you want to be is the place you have to be. Pretty lucky, no?"
-Dr. Kevin Allen
And you get rain in central park instead of sunshine
Heather let out another scream as she struggled in Spike's arms, desperate to escape and get to Kelli. Though she was taller then the man, he was stronger then he looked and was right now he was pushing her farther into the dark alley. She struggled again, kicking at him, but he refused to let go.
"You really know how to get into character baby."
"I am not in character you jackass! I am trying to keep you from raping me!" She twisted, but Spike held firm.
"Oh, it ain't rape and we know it, but keep talking like that." He lowered his mouth to her ear and ran his tongue over her lobe. "Most girls who like to play this are usually too into it to begin kicking me still. It's nice to see someone that goes this far. Are you an actress?"
Heather let out a growl and stomped on his foot, causing him to let go and racing into the darkened alley. She could hear Kelli crying out and ran for her friend, only to get her ankle caught on some garbage and sent falling to the pavement, skinning her knee. She whimpered and stood up as Spike grabbed her by the shoulder and lifted her up, frowned.
"Poor baby…let me lick that for you."
"LET GO OF ME!" Heather screamed.
Spike shrugged, still clueless. "Listen, I know your nervous, but we are all alone. No one will bother us."
"Wanna bet?" Came a voice. Spike turned ad froze as a tall man emerged from the shadows, using a cane to push Spike farther into the alley where Horus lay bleeding, his lip rebusted open. Kelli was clinging to his side, and Heather moved behind him as he sneered at the two.
"Hey man, we're just trying to have some fun."
"The girls don't want to have fun with you." Doc K said. "Now, I am going to get them out of here and then come back to teach you two manners." He turned as Tristan came running up with Eliza, still looking around for any dangers. "Kelli, Heather, go with my sister and Tristan."
"Ok….wait…you have a sister?" Heather asked.
"Oh, stupid me." Kevin said with a smile. "Eliza, Kelli and Heather. Heather and Kelli, Eliza."
Eliza nodded and looked at the two men in front of her brother, confused as to why him and Tristan had gone running in to stop those two. 'Kevin is a school teacher….so is Tristan. So why would two professors be running into dark alleys and fighting of men?"
Kevin turned and gave Tristan and knowing smirk. Tristan nodded and Kevin looked over at Eliza. "I'm sorry Eliza….uh…you two are…?"
The two men frowned, confused. "I'm Spike and this is Horus."
"Of course." Tristan said. "Spike and Horus, this is Eliza. Eliza, Spike and Horus. Spike and Horus, I'm Tristan, this is Kevin. You've met Kelli and Heather. Kelli and Heather, you've met us….who am I forgetting?"
"Me." Kevin said, turning to Tristan. "Hi, Dr. Kevin Allen."
"Nice to met you, Tristan Taylor…man, it's good to see you."
"Good to see you too. Listen, Spike, Horus, we have to get going, nice to see you two again. Bye guys!"
Horus and Spike nodded, waving. "Bye….wait a minute!" All 5 paused when they heard Spike and Horus cock their guns which they had discreetly pulled form their jackets.
"Not this." Kevin said with a sigh. "Not the old, 'You pull guns on us, we pretend to listen, but we pull guns out.'" Both men whipped around and pointed their MIB tranq guns at Spike and Horus. "Then your arms will get tired, you'll let them fall, let us leave, and I will go home and have 'I almost shot Spike and Horus' sex with my girl."
Spike frowned. "How about we just shoot your ass unless you give us back our women?"
Kevin sighed. "Their not as stupid as they look."
"No, it's because of the ill lighting. They look better, so they are not as stupid as we thought, but they are still as stupid as they look." Tristan said.
"ENOUGH!" Hours shouted. "alright funny boys, you want to tangle with us? Let's duel!"
"Good idea. You two close your eyes for a minute then start shooting." Kevin began to prep warping all of them out of there. However, what the two men would say next would make Kevin decide on another option.
"I mean, let's play a game of duel monsters."
Doc K smiled and turned to look at Tristan, a glimmer in his eye at the chance to duel. "Isn't it lucky that we live in a world of drive-by-duels? Get them out of here Tristan. I can take these two easily."
"The hell you will!" Tristan shouted, activating his own Duel Disk. "I ain't leaving your side Doc! I want to duel as bad as you, so we are just going to have to share them."
Kevin frowned but nodded, turning to look at his sister. "Sorry I had to show you this way sis, but it looks like your finally going to get to see me on the job." His duel disk spun open and he glared at the two punks as they activated their own disks. "I am going to enjoy this."
Yugi looked over at Rebecca as he fixed his tie, then back at the mirror. "So…the party is tonight, huh?"
Rebecca nodded, running her hand over her dress, straightening it out. "Yup…that it is." She paused, licking her lips slowly. "So…I guess we should be going then? Don't want to be late."
"Yea, yea….how long is this thing?"
Rebecca thought for a moment. They were heading out to an alumni meeting at the University of Domino. Dr. Noga, the current Dean, had invited everyone to come get some food and mill around a crap ballroom for a few hours, chatting about boring things. Of course, Yugi and Rebecca didn't know that because of Eliza, Veronica and Kevin, the head of the teacher's union, were skipping their own party and getting things ready for her.
"5 hours. Starts at 7, runs till midnight."
Yugi let out a groan. "Do we have to go? Seriously. I would rather duel Seto with the deck Tea had before Geno trained her and Pegasus giving me a back massage, naked, then to go to this thing."
"Which one of you is naked?"
"Does it matter?" Yugi said with a sigh.
"Well kinda. IF your big fear is only seeing Pegasus naked but don't mind him seeing you, then your sick." She paused, putting a finger to her chin. "On the other hand, if you don't want to be naked but don't mind seeing Pegasus, then I think we need to have a serious talk."
Yugi sighed. "I found something I'd rather not do then go to this party."
The taller duelist, the one called Spike, shook his head and growled. "Listen man, you don't seem to get who we are, so I am going to have to show you! I summon The Frozen Knight, in attack mode, as well as set this card."
Kevin raised an eyebrow. The Frozen Knight had a strong defense at 2200, but it's attack was only 1100, rather small. However, he knew better then to take the bluff. A weak monster set with a downface card always meant danger.
"I'll set this monster in defense and end my turn."
The other duelist, Horus, smiled a big crooked grin and licked his still bleeding lip. "I am going to enjoy crushing you in front of your women. I'll show them a real man!"
"Oh, you're going to buy them a playgirl?" Tristan asked with a smile on his face.
"I'll set this monster and end my turn as well. Show us what you got, pretty boy."
Tristan nodded. "Gladly. I'll also set a monster and a card and end my turn."
As the turn went to Spike, he let out a laugh, making the women behind the two duelists shudder slightly. "You should have attacked me when you had the chance. Had you, I wouldn't be able to play this: Global Warming."
The field card flashed and the alley was filled with a harsh light. Looking up, Kevin and Tristan found the cause for this to be a massive sun that was now beating down upon them. More shocking was that Spike's Frozen Knight was now melting, becoming a mass of tentacles, each end featuring a nasty ice blade.
"This card allows me to transform my Frozen Knight each turn into a new form. His first is this, Liquid Knight. As you can see, he has lost a lot in the defense department, but his attack is now much, much higher!" Sure enough, a check of its stats revealed that Liquid Knight now had 2500 attack points.
"What sort of magic is this!" Eliza shouted, watching as the horrid beast reared up and slashed down at her brother. "NO!"
Dr. K, however, merely laughed.
"What is so funny?" Spike asked, watching Kevin's card fall apart. He got his answer as a phantom sprung from Kevin's field and slaughtered the water monster.
"You attacked my Night Assailant, the vampires' favorite assassin." He lowered his head, glaring at the man. "And he always gets the job done!"
"So you think." Spike said gruffly. "I activate my downface card, Condensation. This card allows me to resummon my Liquid Knight to the field each time he is killed. However, the downside is he can't attack." Spike wiped his nose on his sleeve. "But thanks to my Global Warming Spell, he won't be around much longer."
Kevin rolled his eyes. "I'm reallllly impressed. You saved one monster." He drew, and paled, looking over at Eliza. 'I know what happens when I play Count of Shift…' He looked down at the Mistress of the Night card. 'But if I summon this card…and it is Eliza's Ka…what will happen? I don't want to risk it…but I will set up a combo, just in case.'
"Are you going to move?" Horus called out.
Kevin glared at him and looked at the cut on his lip. "I suggest you clean up that blood…it doesn't help me stay calm."
Eliza looked over at the two young girls and trembled. 'He can't mean…it's not possible, is it?'
"First, I play Card of Safe Return. Next, I activate Book of Life, allowing me to revive my Night Assailant and draw one card." As he drew the card he felt a smile tug on his lips. "And now, it's time to show you all…" He looked at Eliza and smiled softly. "My true form."
He sacrificed his Night Assailant, only for light to engulf him. Eliza watched a her brother faded from view, only to reappear…
As one of the living dead.
She let out a scream and fainted, the shock too much. She knew that her brother was different…but this wasn't something she had expected…this was impossible! Heather managed to catch the older woman ad gently lay her on the ground.
Dr. K frowned. "That could have gone better." He muttered, tucking his cane under his arm.
Joey closed his eyes and smiled. "Who would have thought that tonight could turn out so good?"
Mai shrugged. "Not me. I was expecting this to be such a boring evening." She too closed her eyes and smiled. "But I must tell you Joseph, had I known things would have been like this, I would have happily looked forward to this." She flashed him a dazzling smile.
"Well, that's what happens when you blow off that stupid alumni meeting and decide to spend the evening in your own personal hot tub." Joey gave his wife a giant grin and ran a finger through the water slowly, making gentle paths. "I knew I bought this thing for a reason."
Mai smirked and looked across at the Domino Skyline. Above them, the early summer sky was filled with thousands of twinkling stars, below them the faint sounds of cars acting as their own private symphony. She reached over to the champagne the had brought with them, and with a POP, sent the cork flying into the night, pouring them each a glass.
"What the hell is going on!" Horus roared. "How the hell can you be a duel monster?"
"For someone that claims to know this game, you sure don't understand the origins, do ya big guy?" He ran his tongue over his fangs. He had to keep himself in check in this form, or he would be in trouble. Already, he could feel the dark tug on his form, begging him to unleash unholy fury upon these two mortals. But that was the vampire in him, not the man, talking. "I summon Count of Shift to the field. Next, I will activate Premature Burial, resurrecting my Night Assailant once more, drawing yet another card." He smirked. "And now, I will play Graceful Charity." (Dr K-3200)
Heather frowned. "I don't get it! Why is he wasting all his cards in the second turn? He should be attacking that water monster!"
"He's going to." Kelli said softly. Heather looked at her and she smiled. "My father told me once that this was why Dr. Kevin Allen was one of the only duelists that could rival Geno Roads. His deck is designed to run fast, so fast that he can bring out every card he needs in one turn. He's using up all those good cards to bring out better ones."
Heather shook her head, feeling very much like her father at the moment. "It's not strange enough that he is a duel monster…"
While they had been talking, Doc K had sent a Regenerating Mummy and a Magic Cylinders card to the graveyard and set one final card. Now, he had already rushed into battle, striking down Horus' downface card. As his cane pierced it, a Sangan appeared, laughing before it shattered.
"Attack me." Horus said with a sneer. "You know you want to."
"I'm no that dumb." Doc K/Count of Shift said, ending his turn. "The Liquid Knight will defend if I try and get at your lp."
Horus shrugged. "Oh, that knight's goin' get ya anyway, your merely stallin'." He drew and smiled once more, making the girls shiver. "You know, I think I should show you how a real man duels. First, I'm goin' summon my Shadowslayer in attack mode!"
"Yuck!" Heather shouted, watching as the horse-skulled assassin climbed down the wall and leapt to the ground, his hands grabbing an ax. "That is the ugliest thing I've seen since…well…those two!"
"It ain't all beauty in Duel Monsters princess." Horus said. "Now, I will activate two more cards: Swords of Concealing Light, and Stumbling"
From the sky fell several swords, each one hitting one of their monsters and forcing them into downface mode. Kevin let out a cry of pain as he was thrown out of the Count of Shift and the vampire faded into his card.
"This spell allows me to make all your monster stay in defense position for two turns. Combined that with my Stumbling card, which forces you to summon monsters in defense, and you are leaving a open hole for my Shadowslayer!"
"What do you mean?" Tristan shouted.
"Shadowslayer can attack directly if all your monsters are in downface defense…like so!"
Tristan turned to watch as Kevin screamed, the ax slicing across his chest. He staggered back to his feet, clutching his heart. Horus laughed, believing he had hurt the duelist, but Tristan knew the truth: Dr. K was going dark and was forcing his demonic side down. (Doc K-1800)
