((Okay, so for starters, Yugi and Yami have their own separate bodies with two millennium puzzles, same goes for Bakura and Ryou. The mind connection is still the same. Also, this happened AFTER Battle City ))
Summary: Yugi and Yami are being tempered with, but by whom? I don't know. The person, whoever it is, has a grudge against them and wants the two to suffer. So he transforms Yugi into an animal. The only way Yugi will change back, is if he can get his clue-less friends to know that it's him. Sounds easy, right? But it's not. Yugi can only speak whatever language he gets transformed into. How will he convince his friends who he is without talking to them?
"I'm up for games at the arcade, anyone else?" Joey Wheeler asked as he and his group of friends leaves the school grounds. They all start heading for home; they all walk the same direction, but then split off. (The arcade is another place you can split up.)
Tristan, Yami, and Tea all nod their heads. But Ryou and Yugi shook theirs.
"I need to get home and make sure Bakura didn't wreck anything. You know how he gets." Ryou sadly shook his head, remembering leaving the house for three hours, the house perfectly cleaned, and coming home to it all messed up and the kitchen stove on fire to find Bakura got pissed when trying to find the remote to the TV.
Joey looked at Yugi. "What 'bout you, Yuge?"
"Grandpa told me to check the shop after school every day while he's out in Egypt for the dig." Yugi said.
"Do you need me to come with you?" Yami, Yugi's darker half, asked.
Yugi shook his head. "That's alright; I'll be quick. It doesn't take two people to check an empty shop." He smiled. "After I'm done, I'll meet you guys at the arcade."
"All right, Yugi. Just don't do anything reckless."
Yugi looked at his partner. "Like what? I don't do—"
"YUGI! Look out, Pole!" Every one yelled as Yugi walked straight into a Light pole.
Yugi stepped back, rubbing his fore head. Everyone stifles a laugh.
"See? I told you." Yami stated.
Yugi sent a playful glare up at him while still rubbing his forehead.
They all stop at their stop. "So Yugi," Tristan says, "See you in a few?"
Yugi nodded, "Yup."
Yami, Joey, Tea and Tristan split off from the group, waving their goodbyes, while Ryou and Yugi walk together for they have one more stop before they split up.
"So, Yugi, How are you doing?" Ryou asked, trying to keep the conversation going.
Yugi shrugged. "Doing all right, how 'bout yourself? You managing with Bakura?"
Ryou sighed. "I'm getting by. But, Bakura can be quiet. . . I do know, bossy? A worry-wart? He always worries about where I am, but if I try to worry about him, he gets all mad."
Yugi smiles. "Don't worry, Yami does the same. But he doesn't get mad. Bakura won't say it, but he cares about you."
"Well, he has to make sure nothing happens to me. If something does happen, well, let's just say it would be bad for him."
((If something happens to the yami, then the hakari's feels it, and vice versa. So, to make that not happen, the yami's usually watch over their hakari's and keeps them out of harm's way. ))
Yugi nodded, understanding. "So, beside's the incident with the stove, how has Bakura been?"
'Yugi, always thinking of somebody else, even if he doesn't like him.' Ryou thought before replying, "Um . . . He's been the same, cranky mood and what not. But why, why does he have to be so . . . all-the-time- cranky?" He sighed. "Yugi, you have it lucky."
"I don't know. But that really sucks for you, Ryou. You're too nice to be paired up with him."
Yugi smiles at Ryou who also smiles.
Before long, the two came to their stop.
"Well, Yugi, I guess I'll see you tomorrow? There won't be time for me to go to the arcade with you guys." Ryou said.
Yugi nodded his head. "Okay. So we're still up for everyone coming to my house tomorrow?"
"Yup. But Bakura might have to come, I still don't trust him enough and having him stay home while I'm at school, well . . . You know that story. Well, anyways, see you tomorrow, Yugi." Ryou waved and walked down one of the side streets that lead towards his apartment. Yugi waved back before continuing down his own street to the Game shop.
'Shop looks good.' Yugi thought as he walked into the shop. He walked into the living room and dropped his backpack off before going back toward the shop. 'So now I'm off to the – oh, looks like Grandpa called' Yugi looked at the answering machine that was flashing red. Yugi walked over to it and pushed the 'play' button.
"Oh ho! Hello Yugi, Yami. Hope everything's going alright and you're taking care of one another. The dig's going alright, but I called to let you know I won't be able to make it back next week. The dig is taking longer than we expected, but it should end in about two weeks.
"I hope you are taking care of the shop in my absence and doing your homework. Well, I have to go now. You two boys behave yourself!"
The message machine and Grandpa's voice clicked off, revealing the end of the message.
Yugi smiled. Aloud, he stated, "Yes, Grandpa, we're doing our homework and taking care of your shop. Don't worry; everything will be in one peace when you get home."
"Aww, aren't you a goodie- good." A voice said.
Yugi tensed and quickly turned around. But no one was there. "Who's there?"
"Hahaha. Quick to jump, I see." Yugi looked all around him, but still, no one was there. He ran to the living room, but it was empty, and so was the kitchen. He walked back to the shop confused.
"Show yourself!" Yugi yelled to no one in particular. He looked around the shop, but again it was empty.
"Why should I? It's much more fun to watch you talk to yourself." The voice said. It chuckled, its voice laughing a deep, rich sound. "But, oh, I guess I must show myself if I am to test you."
'Test me? Huh?' Yugi thought as the air a few feet in front of him shimmers and a tall figure took its place. It was a guy, standing approximately 6'5 inches, had on a black suit and black shiny shoes. He has a beard but no mustache and his hair was neatly in place; not a single hair out of place. His hair was a fire-y red, but his mustache was black. His eyes, which surprised Yugi, were a never ending darkness zone.
When the guy spoke, his voice was a deep bass, having a echo sound after each word. His voice, also very powerful and demanding. "You are Yugi Muto, I presume?"
"Yes . . . Who are you and why are you in my house?" ((House, shop, same thing.)) Yugi said, a bit scared, but trying to speak confidently.
The voice chuckled, hearing and feeling the scared radiating off of him. "My name . . . As what you humans call it, is Destiny."
"Destiny?" Yugi asked a bit confused. 'If what he said is true, then why he is here, can't be good.' He thought, watching the man, 'thing' stand before him.
"Yes, and you are right, Yugi Muto. Why I'm here, isn't good." Destiny commented, reading the boys mind. "You and your yami, you two are very close. So close, that I wonder if you would be able to tell the difference between each other if the other were to change looks."
Yugi gives him a odd look. "What do you mean by that?"
He laughed. "I want to see what would happen to your yami if you were to, say . . . disappear. How would he react? And what about your friends?"
Yugi took a step back, thinking about making a run for it. The window in his room could get him to the ground safely if he paced himself.
Destiny laughed. "I don't really think that would help you, Yugi Muto. Do you even know who you're dealing with?"
Yugi took another step back before turning around and making a mad dash for the stairs. He didn't even make it five steps before a black object appeared and tripped him, making him fall face down on his face.
Slowly, as Yugi got to his hands and knees, Destiny spoke, "My my, being a little rude, hmm? That's not how you treat a guest now, is it?" His voice started to come closer, and as Yugi looked up, behind himself, the man was directly behind him, reaching down and grabbing Yugi by his jacket. The hand lifted him high in the air so that his feet hovered about three feet from the ground.
Yugi tried to sway his body to make the man let go, but it wasn't working. "Let me go!" He yelled.
'YAMI!' He yelled through the mind connection he and Yami shared.
Not a second later, a voice popped into his head. 'Yugi? Are you alright? What's going on? I can feel the distress and fear now, what's wrong?' He repeated his question.
But before Yugi could respond, a 'tsk tsk' sound sounded behind him. Destiny twirls his finger and Yugi is twirled around to face him.
"That's cheating, Yugi Muto. No contacting him. He can't know what's going to happen, or it'll just ruin this."
Yugi gave the man a glare. "Let. Me. Go."
Destiny looked at the small boy locked in his fingers with a amused look. "Or what? You can't exactly do anything, not in the position you in."
Yugi wracked his brain for any ideas, but couldn't think of any. In the back of his mind, he could feel Yami still asking him questions. He was about to reply back, when a splitting pain suddenly appeared in the back of his mind. Yugi cried out, squeezing his eyes shut. His hands at his side curled into fists.
"Sorry, but I had to cut your connection with your other. He was distracting you." Destiny stated. The pain in Yugi's mind slowly decreased, and he opened his eyes. Destiny was smirking at him, but Yugi glared.
"Why do you want to test us?"
"I told you before, to see if you and him would be able to recognize each other." He said simple.
Yugi shook his head. "No, there's more to that. Why are you doing this?"
Destiny sighed. "Fine, fine. You caught me. Someone wanted this to happen . . . but they really just want to see if you two would be able to recognize each other. They have a grudge on you, for why, I do not know. They wouldn't say.
"But, here's the deal, for ten days, you will be turned into whatever I please. And in those ten days, you will have to get your yami, along with your group of friends, (Tea, Joey, Tristan, Ryou) to know its you. You will not be able to speak to them; you must be able to show them its you." As he was speaking, Destiny's hand started glowing red; the hand holding Yugi. The red-ness starts to slither down his hand and onto Yugi's jacket, then down to his legs, then chest, until his whole body was glowing red.
Pain started to seep into Yugi. He lets out a startled yelp, making Destiny smirk.
"As you can tell, the process is beginning; you are changing into an animal." Yugi lets out another yelp and his right hand reached up and grabbed the mans hand that was still tightly around his jacket. His small hand clamped on to his and squeezed, as he squeezed his eyes shut.
The pain was horrible. It felt like he was dipping his hand into a pot of boiling water and leaving it there. His feet starts to tingle, before it crept up his legs, and so on. When it got to his head, he lets out a yell.
With out noticing it, Yugi's body started to shrink.
"Ahh, the process is almost complete. You are transforming nicely." Yugi squeezed his left eye open and noticed his vision getting blurry. Quickly, his right eye opened and noticed things stated to get bigger.
"Wh- what's g-going on?" He squeaked out. Destiny doesn't say anything so Yugi tried to speak again, "Answer me, Wh- Bark!" His eyes grew big. 'Did I just bark?' He tried again. "Bark Bark!"
Destiny smiled real big and lets his finger relax. In his fingers, was a small Beagle puppy, still having a red aura around him. "There, complete." He opened his fingers and the small puppy fell from his grasp, making the red aura disappeared .
The puppy hits the floor with a loud 'thump' and a painful cry erupts through the shop.
Destiny bends down and watched the puppy Yugi slowly and painfully get to his paws. "So, what does it feel like to be a dog, hmm?" He reached his hand out and patted Yugi's head, but Yugi quickly pushed his head out of the way before he could touch him.
"Bark bark bark!" Yugi barked at the man.
[ Wh-what happened? Why am I barking?]
"It's a good thing I can understand you, for there's me and one other, that can understand you." He reached over and picked Yugi up by the scruff and stands up, lifting the growling pup up.
[Growl . . . What the hell are you doing?]
"Taking you outside where you belong." He started walking towards the door that was left opened from before.
[Let. Go. Of. Me.] Yugi growled again.
"Oh, I will, all in due time. But first, we need to get you far away from here so you can find your way home like a good puppy." Destiny let out a vicious laugh before walking outside. Once outside he stopped and looked around before saying, "Well, here we go."
Yugi the puppy blinked and missed the whole thing. Once minute he was standing right outside the Game Shop and the next, he was standing in an unfamiliar area. Everywhere you looked, was tall trees with the leaves slowly falling off. ((It's Autumn)) The grass underneath was yellow and full of leaves.
[Where are we?] Yugi barked.
"We are in a forest near your town. Now, you must find your way home, little Yugi. But be warned, you only have ten days to look and convince everyone who you are."
[But wait, what will happen if I can't convince anybody? And what happens when they find out who I am?]
"Hm… Then, you'll lose your soul to the Shadow Realm. And if they figure who you are, then you will turn back into your little ol' self." Yugi gulped. The shadow realm… not a fun place to be. "Anyways, I leave you here, but don't worry; I'll visit you constantly to make sure your doing alright. Oh, one more thing before I leave, one other person can hear you speak and know who you are. But, be warned, they won't say anything about you to the others." With that, Destiny gently places Yugi the beagle on the yellowed grass and shimmered out before Yugi could bark anything else.
