me: I finally felt like continuing this story! Yaayyy!
Daisuke: shouldn't you tell your reviewers WHY you didn't update?
Me: *mumbles something incomprehensible under breath*
Satoshi: she said that she was too busy playing Kingdom Hearts 358/2 days.
Me: Hey! That's not all true, I was also studying for the PSAT!!!!!
Satoshi: barely. As I seem to remember, you only studied at school. Which took no time out of your fanfics writing, because you don't write it during school anyway. Daisuke: And you aren't even going to type the rest of this today, because you procrastinated so much. Dark bets $20 that you won't tomorrow either.
Me: my friend hasn't updated in a while either…If I don't, don't blame me, it's the fault of the book fair! And did you know one of my favorite quotes is "I won't procrastinate until tomorrow" *changes topic* Now, who wants to do the disclaimer….Daisuke you do.
Daisuke: I do? Wolf-girl-Artemis does not own, nor will ever own (I hope) DNAngel or Yu-Gi-Oh.
Me: Why don't you want me to own you?
Me: WARNING, MAJOR EXAMPLE OF KRAD'S SADISTIC NATURE!!!!!!!!!! TORTURE!!!!!!!!!!
/Hikari to Yami/
/Yami to Hikari/
Chapter 7: Every Action has an Equal but Opposite Reaction. (yeah, I pay attention in science. And watch FMA Deal with it)
"Wait. You mean to tell m-us, that Duel Monsters is REAL, and thousands of years old!!!" Dark, and Daisuke said at the same time. They glanced at each other for a second, and thought that they must have been spending waaayyy to much time together. Oh, wait, they couldn't get away from each other.
"Like it's any less believable than Krad and Dark." Satoshi said, interrupting their thought(s). Daisuke looked back at him.
"True…" he admitted.
"Why wouldn't you believe me/us? Well, I suppose that is a stupid question, but what have I done that gives you a reason not to believe me?" Yuugi asked.
"Well….nothing I guess." Daisuke said. It was true, Yuugi had not lied to him at all while they were friends, except for about Yami and the Sennen items. But who wouldn't lie about that? Nobody would believe him anyway, in fact, most people would think he was crazy. Daisuke knew Riku, Risa, and Takashi probably would. It made him realize that Yuugi had good friends, ones that stuck with him through everything, even sneaking on a boat to watch him duel. Not that Daisuke's friends weren't good friends. He just had a different situation, one that was slightly harder. He had to live two lives, while Yuugi only had to live one. Well, Yuugi had a hard life too, but…best not think about it, it didn't matter. The conversation was an awkward silence now, with both sides thinking about what the others said. Admittedly, Yuugi-tachi had already had a longer time to think about it, but they had been more worried about what to tell Daisuke, Dark, and Satoshi. Wait. Satoshi, Krad. If Dark, Daisuke, and Satoshi were here, where was Krad? Yami wondered. He also wondered if he should mention his thoughts, they might know already, and have done something to stop him from running free.
"When you guys said your story earlier, you mentioned someone named Krad as your other self, right Satoshi?" Yami asked. At Satoshi's nod, he continued, "Well, if you are here then-" He was cut off by shouts of "Shit!" "Not again!" from Dark and Daisuke, respectively.
Satoshi leaned against a wall, and finished what he was going to say " Where is Krad." he said it as more of a statement than a question. It wasn't like he wasn't worried, more like the total opposite. Who knew what he was going to do, and Daisuke/Dark/s abandoned body was right next to him…no, he was more like going into shock. Krad was just that bad. Judging from Daisuke and Dark's faces, they must have had the same thought. They were both going rapidly pale. Ryou, always the helpful one, asked:
"What is he capable of doing, and will he do it?" Dark, having had some experience with Krad's sadistic ways, answered instead of Satoshi. They all knew (or guessed) that Satoshi would be preoccupied with those thoughts to answer. Ryou kind of felt sorry for him, he knew what it was like to have a sadistic and evil other self.
"Well, he is capable of killing our body…or torturing it. The last time I met him, he well, tried to kill me. He does that a lot though. Many people do. Oh, and he also uses magic a lot , so he will wear himself out quicker. But he can use a lot of destructive magic at a time, and likes to too."
"Which is why we HAVE to get our body back, now." Daisuke finished. Both Satoshi and Dark nodded.
"You should probably try now then, so you can get there quicker." Yuugi said. Dark and Daisuke looked at Satoshi. Daisuke, because he was sure Satoshi would have an idea, and Dark because although he may have known him for hundreds for years, Satoshi had shared Krad's mind, and knew how it worked better.
"He probably set up a magical barrier, preventing us three from returning to our bodies. He would not let the chance to torture and kill your body go to waste. There is one good thing. Knowing him, he hasn't done anything yet. He would want you to be watching as he killed you. It's the next best thing to hearing you scream in pain. If we can get back into our bodies now, it's because he wants us to." Satoshi said, standing up off the wall, and looking at Yami.
"Which means that you can't do anything about it, but we can." Yami finished, catching his look. Yuugi, Ryou, Daisuke, and Dark looked at them in surprise.
"So we can't do anything about our body?" Daisuke asked. Satoshi smirked.
"I didn't say that."
Krad smirked evilly, and let out a little evil laugh that rang through the night, creeping out everyone who heard him, especially the ones that looked up, saw his white wings, and mistook him for an angel. And their friends and family wondered why they didn't like angels after that. He was flying to an abandoned part of the forest with Daisuke/Dark's body bridal style in his arms. His white wings curled around his body as he dived closer to the trees. It didn't take long before he was soaring up right over the tree tops. He thought about dropping Dark/Daisuke's body right here, their red hair was annoying him, it kept getting in his eyes. But he didn't. What he had in store for Dark was much more pleasurable than watching Dark's broken body fall through the trees. If he dropped him now, there would be no screaming, with silent tears that shone on Darks face, and no begging for mercy. He wanted Dark to beg, to do anything, and watch as a helpless look over took his face. His grin grew as he thought about that. Oh yes, it would be much more pleasurable than dropping him.
His feet gently touched the ground as he landed in a clearing. This would be perfect. His golden eyes scanned over the small clearing, and he ripped out one of his feathers, not even flinching. He bit his thumb, making it bleed, then smeared the blood over the feather. He then used the nails on the same hand that was bleeding to make a large, deep, gash on Daisuke's arm. He dyed the feather in red. He held it up. This was a fine paint brush, he thought. He had never realized why anyone would want to paint something a color other than blood red. It was such a beautiful color. And the Niwa's blood was such a beautiful shade of red, the prettiest shade he had ever seen. It probably had something to do with Dark. All Niwas had such pretty red blood. But Daisuke's was special. There was just something about his blood that stood out, making him want to see more of the blood, watching that beautiful blood spill all over the ground, staining it and him red. He licked his lips. Soon, he promised himself, very soon. He just had to finish preparing the little surprise he had in store for the Niwa boy and Dark. He cleared the leaves off the ground with a quick wind spell, and started drawing a magic circle on the ground, making sure to have three circles in the middle. One for their body, and one for each of their sprits. He could have drawn it with magic, but he found that drawing it with blood made it more powerful, and more beautiful. There was just something about drawing a magic circle on the ground with blood that made it so much more appealing than doing it with magic.
Once he was done, he checked the circle for mistakes. Good, there were none. He grabbed Daisuke's body, and threw it into the circle in the middle that had the symbol for body on it. He was careful not to throw the body in such a way that the blood still dripping from the wound would not wreck the circle. The body landed face down inside the circle in a position that surly would have hurt if someone had actually been in it. But since there was no one in it, there was no "ow" of the pain that should have been felt.
With a sigh, Krad looked at his bloody hands. That blood would have to be cleaned off, after all, as much as he liked the color or red, he didn't want the clothes stained. By now though, it wasn't so much as he liked to color of the clothes, as it proved he was opposite Dark. He liked to show that in every way possible. He never wanted to be compared to that bastard. With a quick flash of light, all the blood on him was cleaned off. He licked his lips in anticipation, and his hands quivered in excitement. There was nothing Dark, Satoshi, or any of their new friends could do to stop him. Nothing.
Glancing at the sky, he decided that it was time to set the lure, and bait his prey into springing the trap. Using his powers, he reached into his mind, and followed his mind link with Satoshi into Daisuke's mind. He grabbed hold of Daisuke's soul, and started pulling. He heard both Daisuke and Satoshi scream in pain. At another time, he would have appreciated the good fortune, and think it to be a sign that everything was going to go perfectly, but he was too busy trying to drag Daisuke's soul through his and Satoshi's mind to where he was standing now. Daisuke could put up a good struggle, he mused. But not good enough. With one last, powerful pull, he yanked Daisuke from the puzzle to the circle that was meant to contain his sprit in the magic circle in front of Krad. Krad would have taken Dark too, but dragging souls through minds was a risky, painful (but he liked the pain), and exhausting process. Just dragging Daisuke's soul through there was enough to make him want to slump down in exhaustion. But he didn't. He was too excited to be able to finally, finally, be able to kill and torture Dark. The very thought filled him with energy.
Krad watched quietly as the Niwa boy opened a bleary eye, saw where he was, his body, who he was with, and screamed. His sadistic grin came back at it's full terrifying, force. The Niwa boy was afraid-terrified of him. And that panic would only draw Dark closer. But he had to do something to pass the time. His horrible grin grew even larger, if possible. He couldn't kill the boy's body, not yet, not until Dark was there. But spirits cannot die, not unless the body dies first. And with the magic circle Krad put on the ground, he could torture the spirit as much as he wanted without hurting the body. He would cut and torture the boy until he broke. And he would laugh while doing it. It would be so much fun to see as much blood spill as he wanted without killing him, and see the tears run down his face as he called for help, only to realize that his calls only trapped his savior, putting him through the same thing. And then, after he was finished torturing and breaking their souls, he would finally kill them, albeit slowly. He would make this as painful as possible. But before he could start his little game with the Niwa boy, he had to finish setting up, to make sure that his friends couldn't break the circle, and stop him.
He glanced back over to where Daisuke was once again staring at his body with a mixture of revolution and curiosity. Daisuke glanced back over to Krad, his face getting paler. Krad laughed and the boy jumped back in fear when he heard it. It was one which promised lots and lots of pain. A level of which the boy had probably never felt, and never will again. Oh yes, this was going to be fun.
Yami, Yuugi, and Ryou watched in shock as Daisuke disappeared, screaming in pain along with Satoshi, in front of their eyes. One thought ran through their minds, What the HELL just happened!!!!!!!!!! Although that may have seemed out of character for Yuugi and Ryou, they had just seen one of the friends they trusted enough to share their secret, vanish while crying in agony, right in front of their eyes. One second, Daisuke had been standing, right there, talking to them about their plans for Krad, and then he just suddenly dropped down on his knees, and screamed. Of course, Satoshi did the same, but it was worse with Daisuke because as he had screamed, he had started disappearing. Dark had been the first to ask what was wrong. He had run over to Daisuke almost as soon as he started screaming. Unfortunately, Daisuke had vanished before he could answer. But that in itself was an answer. There was only one person who could do this, and it was Krad. They all watched as Satoshi got up from his position on the floor.
"Krad…he took…Daisuke…to where he…was…through our mind…link." He gasped, holding his head. They all winced. Krad must have dragged Daisuke out through Satoshi's mind link, and that had to have given him one massive headache. Dark was the first to ask the questions they all wanted to ask.
"Where did he take Daisuke? What is he doing? Where is he? Why didn't you stop him?!" he yelled, grabbing him by the collar. Satoshi sent him a piercing glare.
"First, I don't know, second, I don't know, third, I don't know, and forth, have you ever tried to stop someone inside your mind while you are in a lot of pain? It's hard, and I am in a very bad mood right now, so SHUT UP or so help me I will kill you, Daisuke or not." Satoshi's statement seemed to knock Dark out of his rampage. Dark carefully set him down, and then stated.
"Well, what are we waiting for? No one steals the possessions of the Great Phantom Thief Dark, and get's away with it." They all just looked at him. Yami shook his head.
"From what you have told me, Krad is not the type of person to just take one of you back, especially Daisuke. He seemed to really hate you, Dark more than Daisuke. It must be a trap. We shouldn't rush into this. We need a plan." he said.
"True, but what can we do? Since they have found out about us, I am sure Krad has too, right?" Yuugi said. The first part of that sentence was directed towards Yami, but the last part was directed towards Satoshi and Dark. Dark looked at Satoshi expectantly. Satoshi would have known if Krad was listening in. Satoshi sighed, and pushed his glasses further up his nose as he tried to remember.
"Krad defiantly knows." he said eventually. "I am positive he was listening, and it's fact that he won't let something like that fade into the back of his mind. He IS the total opposite of Dark after all. And he knows about the Yami no Games, so we can't use that against him, not unless it is something he thinks he can win. And you would have to give him a HUGE reward for winning, making it almost impossible to resist. Unfortunately, the only thing he wants now is Dark."
"So what you are saying is we would have to pretend that Dark is our prisoner?" Ryou asked.
"Exactly." Satoshi said.
"But wait, how can we convince him? He knows you from our minds, he won't fall for it." Dark said.
"Not really. He doesn't know what kind of a person Ryou's other self is." Satoshi said, glancing meaningfully at Ryou. Ryou got the hint.
"Oh no, I am not letting Bakura out."
"Who said you would have to do that?" Yami said, giving him a feral grin.
"You want me to act like my yami?!" he yelped.
"It's either that, or you actually let the thief out." Ryou groaned with Yami's answer. Like he could act that well, he hated hurting people and besides….
"I don't know how to call a Yami no Game, and I can't last long in that realm. Just like Yuugi, you understand right?" He said.
"Then I guess I will have to do all the work." Bakura said, stepping out of a shadowed hallway. Yuugi and Ryou jumped. Yami glared at the tomb thief.
"Why should we trust you? What is in this for you?" he asked, not missing a beat in accusing the thief of something.
"What do I want? A match, to see who is the better thief between me and Dark. An easy price to give for saving your asses." he said. Dark thought about it for a minute.
"Fine, you have yourself a deal. When, and where?" he asked, his eyes burning with the promise of getting Daisuke back, and the prospect of a challenge. No one had ever beaten him. This would be the first challenge he had had in a long time. Bakura smirked.
"We'll decide that later, after we save your 'other self'." he said. Yami, Yuugi and Ryou quietly watched the exchange. Well this was getting interesting. Although….Ryou didn't like the thought of his Yami having his body for any amount of time. Oh well, it had to be done. Dark nodded.
"Let's start planning." he said. Everyone nodded. Right. One amazing, super awesome plan coming right up.
Daisuke paled as he got up and saw his body inside a small circle, which was in side a much larger circle. It looked as if it was drawn with blood. Looking closer at the body, he noticed a wound on his right arm. Correction. His blood. He took a hesitant step forward, and was immediately stopped by an invisible barrier. He looked at his feet. It seemed as if he was inside a circle too. Great. Forgetting about any plans of escape, he looked around to see where he was, and who had brought him there. He sincerely hoped it wasn't Krad.
Daisuke's eyes trailed the scenery. It looked as though he was in the middle of a large clearing. He froze as his eyes caught sight of a figure, illuminated by the moonlight. White wings, long blond hair….it was Krad. Krad must have sensed his gaze, because he immediately looked at Daisuke with the most terrifying, sadistic, evil grin he had ever seen. It seemed to promise pain. Which he wouldn't doubt. He quickly looked away, and then glanced back down at his body. The gash on his arm was still bleeding profusely. That was going to hurt later. He felt sick as he thought about what Krad was going to do to him. He knew that whatever Krad was going to do, It would hurt. Badly. He glanced back up at Krad. There must have been something funny (knowing Krad, in a sadistic and twisted kind of way), because as soon as Krad saw his expression, he laughed.
Daisuke's blood chilled in his veins. It was the mist terrifying, evil, horrifying laugh he had ever heard. Shivers went down his spine. That laugh contained all of Krad's love of blood, he could almost hear Krad thinking about how to torture him. He watched helplessly as Krad drew a giant six-pointed star around the circle. Daisuke didn't want to know what it was for. He was kind of relieved though, because Krad didn't paint it there with his blood, he instead used magic to imprint it on the ground. Daisuke wondered briefly what the authorities were going to think. He was suddenly glad that Satoshi was part of the police (although it was really a hassle to avoid him, he now knew almost all their tricks, it was by luck and skill that they got the artwork now), because he would most likely cover most of it up. Well, the parts that contained Krad and Dark anyway. Satoshi couldn't arrest himself for this, and wouldn't arrest Dark, since it wasn't his fault.
He heard the crack of a branch as Krad walked over to him. He was holding something that glinted in the moonlight. Although Daisuke wasn't that far from him, it was dark, and he couldn't make it out very well. He almost cried as he saw that it was a knife. Krad drew closer. Scratch that, it looked like a really, really sharp knife. Although it wasn't likely, he dearly hoped that it wasn't what he thought it was. Krad proved him wrong soon, and Daisuke realized it was most defiantly a knife. He screamed as the knife went right through his head.
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH." it hurt so bad, he wished it would stop. Nothing had ever been that painful, it was worse than anything he had ever felt. He fell over backwards as Krad forcefully, and painfully, ripped the knife out from his head. Daisuke now had a huge gash in between his eyes that went all the way through his head. If he hadn't been so preoccupied with the pain, he would have wondered why he wasn't dead. Well, he did wonder, but his thought was washed out along with all his other thoughts as the pain went through his skull. He didn't need to worry about the question though, because Krad answered it almost as soon as he pulled the dagger out.
"Wondering why you aren't dead?" he asked, licking some blood off the blade. His lips and his teeth were a bloody color that looked so creepy in the dark night as he smiled. "It's because of this wonderful magic circle. Whatever I do to your spirit here, doesn't affect the body, and you can't die no matter how much you get hurt." he paused. "Well, unless you kill the body directly." he aimed the knife at Daisuke, who was still holding his head, and wasn't really concerned with listening to Krad at this point. A small part of his mind put this into storage for later. "Otherwise….I can hurt you, make you cry, and make you beg until you are so broken that I get bored." he stabbed Daisuke again, this time in the shoulder. White hot agony flowed through his arm. Huh, it was the same arm that had a gash on it on the body.
"Unfortunately, the only draw back" he said as he ripped the dagger/knife out again "is that the wounds heal a bit…faster than usual if you will. This only works with the spirit though. " He said, his eyes flickering towards Daisuke's body. His example came as Daisuke realized that his head…wound…was gone. Not like it mattered. The rest of his body was going to hurt enough that he wished that was the only thing Krad was going to do to him. "Also," he said, stabbing Daisuke again, "unless the spirit is in the same magic circle as the body, the spirit won't feel the pain. And if they come in later, like you did, they still won't feel the pain." Daisuke tried to hold back his scream of pain, and gasp as he registered this. Well, that explained why his arm didn't have that same gash in it. His non-screaming efforts went to waste with the next stab. He couldn't stand it. He hoped Dark came soon, he wouldn't be able to last much longer without giving in to the pain and pleading with Krad.
/Dark, please, hurry…/ he pleaded through the mind link, his voice laced with pain. He wondered briefly if Dark could feel his pain through the mind link if he kept it open. Reflecting on it while he was in a daze of pain, he wondered why he had never tried to contact Dark through their mind-link when he was trapped in the Second Hand of Time's world. It must have been because their power wasn't fully developed yet. He couldn't think anymore as Krad increased the frequency of the attacks, each wracking his body with pain.
/Dark, please, hurry…./ Daisuke's voice carried to him over their mind link. White hot pain went through with it. It was enough to make him stumble a little bit as he ran. Yami looked over to him in concern. Dark shot him a grin that told him he was fine back. Yami nodded, and ran harder to keep up with Satoshi as they separated, Yami and Satoshi going one way, while Dark and Bakura went another. Yami and Satoshi would be the back up if something went wrong. Meanwhile, Dark and Bakura would go talk to Krad. Or rather, Bakura would. Dark would have to be 'unconscious' during this time. If Dark was standing there willingly, Krad would immediately suspect something. If they tried to attack, Krad would probably kill Daisuke/Dark and be done with it before he lost the chance. Bakura was going to push Dark, who would fake teaming up with him to save Daisuke, in front of Krad and challenge Krad to a shadow game that he would think he could win. As far as making the plan, it was simple. But for actually doing it? Not so much. If Krad saw through their plan, he could kill Daisuke in an instant. They had to count on Krad's sadistic nature for this plan to work. Hopefully, that nature would be his downfall.
/Daisuke I'm coming/ he promised silently, knowing he could hear. He picked up the pace as they neared the clearing in the forest that Satoshi said that he felt Krad's presence from. The only reason they knew it was a clearing, was because as they were running to the general area, Yami had called Seto and Mokuba to find the best place. In an instant, he had the map of the forest on Yuugi's cell phone. It was obvious where it would be. It took them another five minutes to get to the clearing. Dark watched over Bakura's shoulder as they grew closer through his violet eyes. He almost ruined the plan right there as he saw Daisuke. How Daisuke could stand it, he didn't know. His spirit body was covered in gashes and cuts, and each one of them looked extremely painful. He had to restrain himself as they got closer to Krad, the one who had hurt his other self-his friend-his brother- got near enough to punch. Bakura threw Dark in front of Krad.
"I'll make a deal with you. You play a little game with me. If you win, you get to keep him" he (Bakura) said, pointing to Daisuke, "and you get this one." He kicked Dark with his foot to indicate which one he was talking about. Not like there was anyone else there. "If I win, I get to be the one who spills his blood."
Me: And there's the end of this wonderful chapter!
Daisuke: How could you write that torture scene? I thought that I was your favorite character!
Me: well, I just started writing it, and it flowed out, I had so much fun writing this chapter!!!!!
Me: As you all should know, this isn't Yaoi or shounen-ai and won't be that way. If you want to take it that way, you can. But Dark just likes Daisuke as he would a brother, and nothing more. Okay? Now everyone, say bye~
Daisuke, Yuugi, and Ryou: Bye~ *wave hands*
Yami, Seto, Bakura, Satoshi, Dark, and Krad: Bye….
Me: We hope to see you next chapter!!!!!!!!!!!
