AN/ I don't own Yu-Gi-Oh.
Chapter 1~ Pharaoh of Egypt
shorter-than-average pharaoh paced back and forth in front of his throne.
"Pharaoh, the caravan will be leaving in three days and returning a week from
today." A councilman said. "Yes, I know. I'll be ready to go by then." The
Pharaoh said. "Yami, must you go like this? I fear that you will be discovered
and killed while you are on your journey!" his advisor said, walking up. Yami
stopped pacing and sat in his throne. "Seto," he said strongly, "Traveling as a
peasant in a caravan is safer then traveling through the desert with guards and
royal clothing. I'll be just fine, and I'll have three of the Magi with me.
They, too, shall look like peasants."
Seto bowed. "Yes, Pharaoh. Now I
see that you are safer this way." Yami nodded. "Mm." A short, trembling man
cleared his throat and stepped up. "Your order of business is to meet with the
General of the Roman army and have him sign the treaty of alliance." He said
shakily. Yami nodded and inwardly rolled his eyes at that man's ignorance. What
kind of pharaoh wouldn't remember about his own treaty? "Where is the treaty?"
the man shakily handed a rolled up piece of parchment to Seto, who gave it to
Yami unrolled it and skimmed it over. He rolled it back up and
handed it back to Seto. "Are today's affairs done?" he asked. "Yes, Pharaoh. You
may retire. We will continue tomorrow." Seto said. Yami stood and walked out of
the room and down the many halls to his guarded room. He pushed the giant doors
open and walked into the room, the guards closing it behind him. Yami sighed and
stripped himself of his jewelry and robes, climbing into the silk sheets of his
king size bed. He lay, staring at the canopy above, before he fell
Yami shot up in his bed breathing hard, a thin
line of cold sweat covering his skin. "A nightmare?" he asked himself, eyes
wide. "A premonition," a female voice said. He turned toward his doors and saw a
tall woman. She walked over to his bed, her long black hair flowing behind her
and a part of it over her shoulder, mixing with her off-white Egyptian robe. She
sat down in front of him and continued, "of a young beauty that shall enter your
life very soon. You will feel for him what you have never felt for anyone
before." She said. Yami stared at her. "How did you know of that?" he
She bowed her head respectfully to him, then looked back into his
eyes. "I am your sorceress, Pharaoh; therefore I am linked to you. I see what
premonitions you see." She said. "Tell me, what does this young beauty look
like?" she asked. "If you saw it, don't you know?" She smiled. "No, Pharaoh. I
may know of your premonition, but it is not as clear to me as it is to
Yami closed his eyes for a moment, then looked back up to her. "All
I saw were his eyes. Big and beautiful, shining with innocence and purity. They
were rare, much like yours and my own." A smile formed on her lips. "What color
"A beautiful shade of purple." Yami answered. She nodded.
"Yes. Few Egyptians have rare eye colors. However, that is how you know who you
are destined to be with." Yami stared into her golden orbs. "I don't understand.
How can you tell?" he asked. "Dearest Yami, strange eye colors combined with
dreams of pleasure or death signal that you are destined to be with that
person." She explained.
"I am glad that you are my sorceress, you are
special and unlike anyone else." A small blush covered her cheeks at that.
"Thank you, Pharaoh." Light entered the room and reflected in her eyes, making
them a light gold, as the sun rose. "Saren, can I always come to you when I have
problems? You are better then my advisor Seto." Saren nodded. "Always. My
Pharaoh, please do not misjudge Seto. He is but learning to be an advisor. Like
you, he is young and still inexperienced. He worries about you because it is his
"It is no one's job to worry about me." Yami said. Saren shook her
head. "No, Yami. Everyone who cares about you worries for your safety. If you
were ever missing, or injured, we would all be in a panic." She stood and laid
new robes in front of him. "Now, Pharaoh, it is time for you to dress and tend
to the daily affairs." Yami sighed. "A break would really be nice." He muttered
to himself. Saren giggled. "Pharaohs always deserve a break once in a while.
Maybe you will get yours soon." She said. Yami shrugged. "Maybe."
pulled the robes on and walked over to a mirror. Saren placed her hands on his
shoulders and made him sit on the small chair. She briefly combed through his
hair, then placed the brush back on the table in front of him. "I can do this
myself, Saren." She smiled and shook her head, the small charms on her headband
clinking gently. "I'm going to do it today, Yami." She said. She buckled all of
the necklaces and bracelets and placed the headband on him, the Senen eye
resting on the middle of his forehead.
She smiled at him in the mirror.
"You are very beautiful today. Everyday." She said. Yami chuckled lightly. "You
are just as beautiful, Saren. The only other person as beautiful as
"So far." She added. Yami looked at her confused. "Did you forget
about your young beauty already?" she asked. "No. His eyes will distract me all
day if I don't forget, though." He said. They walked out of his room and down
the halls. "Well, then I guess you'll not be concentrating at all today." She
said with a smile. Yami glared at her as they walked into the throne room. They
walked up to the throne and he sat down, Saren standing beside him.
guards looked confused by her presence. She smiled slightly. "My presence is
necessary." She said simply, her voice echoing through the room. "Don't just
stand around. What are today's affairs?" Yami
Finally the day arrived. Yami dressed in peasants
clothes and was accompanied out of the palace by his disguised Magi and the
others in the caravan. They climbed upon their camels and guided wagons out of
the city and started on their way through the desert. ~*~*~*~
week of negotiations, the caravan headed back. Yami had decided to allow one of
the peasants ride his camel because he felt like walking instead, two Magi
sticking close to him. He looked over his shoulder, becoming annoyed with them.
Suddenly, arrow went flying into the caravan. Yami whirled around as he heard a
scream. The young woman riding his camel fell to the desert sand. Yami ran over
to her and felt for a pulse. He saw the arrow embedded in her side and broke it,
gently rolling her over. "I'm. . .sorry. . . Pharaoh." She said quietly as she
Yami placed her down and stood up. "Sir! You must stay low!" one of
the Magi said. Yami looked at the man. Suddenly the man's eyes widened and he
fell over on Yami. Yami caught him and lowered him down, staring at the arrow
embedded in his back.
Yami got up and began to run to another of his
Magi, but fell backwards onto the sand. "Ah!" he cried out. He grasped the arrow
that was embedded in his chest, close to his heart. He breathed hard then fell
limp, passing out from the pain.
