The Taming of the Shrewd... Seto Kaiba

Mokuba: "Wake up big brother! Or you're gonna be late for the Big Day!!"

Seto Kaiba opened his eyes and found himself staring at the massive ball of hair that dared to wake him from his well-deserved rest. He smiled at his little brother, Mokuba, who jumped up and down on the bed with excitement. Seto was still very tired. He had come home late from his office the previous night, after firing the treacherous business executives who had betrayed him.

Seto: "Good morning, kid... what are you so excited about?"

Mokuba: "Oh Seto! Don't you remember?..."

Seto: "Uhhh..."

Mokuba: "The promise?..."

Seto: "The p... promise..." *thinking* 'I wonder what I did this time to make Mokuba so sickeningly happy...'

Mokuba: Oh big brother.... You promised that you'd come over Yugi's house with me today and hang out with the 'gang'!

Seto: *groans* 'Oh great... I get to hang out with that vertically-challenged heart-of-the-cards freak, the friendship girl, that freaky homicidal albino, that idiot who tries to imitate me by wearing his cheap coat, and worst of all... that sniveling puppy-dog! I haven't spoken to them since the virtual-reality game incident and I wasn't planning to any time soon...' "Ummm... Mokuba... when did I make this promise?"

Mokuba: "During the helicopter ride back from the Duelist Kingdom!"

Seto: '@$()!$&... I was so preoccupied in flying the 'copter that I would have said yes to anything...'

Mokuba: "Earth to Seto!!!! We don't want to be late... *puts on unbearably cute face*

Seto: 'Argghhh... the face... the incredibly adorable face!!!' "Fine... I'll go..."

Tristan: "Yah... like daydreaming about Mai's..."

Joey: "Hey! Watch it!!! I do NOT like Mai or her..."
