~I can taste your innocence

Young and sweet like mother made you

Everything froze into ice

These motherfuckers just got wicked~

~I can't, can't explain this little man

Taking over

Can't explain the way that I feel~

~Well I can't explain this little man

Taking over

Can't explain the way that I feel~

Purity is meant to be tarnished.

It has no real placement in this world. Light is meant to be corrupted, what else would our role as Yamis be for? Sure, they are the very reason that we are aloud to exist. But the instant those foolish little hikaris dared to release us, we are eternally bound to them whether pure or not. Just look at that sociopath Mariku's Hikari. He's not so innocent, if you haven't noticed. Cracked, broken, and torn in so many ways that his humanity is buried deep down inside, too far to ever really be reached except by one who knows his pain. Ironic.

I laughed loudly, racing through the chilly night of Domino as I did. The shadows of the night surrounded me, wrapping me in their cold embrace. I loved it. The air burned in my lungs, my heart drummed in my chest just as my blood simmered beneath my veins like liquid fire. This is Yuugi's gift to me. The gift of solidness. The gift of life once more in this world. To crush it in my hands, to destroy it at will or conquest. I prefer the latter.

I laughed again, its mocking tone surrounded me and filled the streets with the promise of my reign. Stupid commoners, they're worse then they were back in my own time. A few pretty words, a few "noble" deeds, and you're in their good graces, walking the streets as they all stare in admiration instead of fear. Delicious.

And they don't know! Hahaha...they really don't know do they? They don't know the real reason why I play the form of the righteous Yami, eternal protector of the world from the Shadow Games...the real reason why I want the Sennen Items. Ohh...they are such fools! Idiotic sheep following me as I lead them to the slaughter house. Fulfilling my every whim because they believe I will 'save' them. Hilarious!

Why run about like that Tomb Robber 'n' his psycho companion drawing attention as they openly announce their motives and how far they'll go for it? Why do all of that, when if you just play like you're a 'good' and 'kind and generous' Yami and have all of it thrown at your feet in the end? Why try to reach something negatively, when if you stroke the mortal's egos they end up getting it for you.

The Soul Stealer is good at that. He hides behind his Hikari's face all the time, plotting behind those innocent, doe-like eyes to steal my puzzle. Like Yuugi's little friends would ever let that happen. After all, it would tear poor little naive Yuugi apart to lose his great protector. Hahahaha! It's so freakin' funny! They really have no idea. When the time comes, this world will be mine in every way. I will rule again as Pharaoh and all my former powers will be restored. And all thanks to those baka sheep that do whatever I tell them.

I wasn't the renowned Game King for anything. And what is all this but a game? And like it or not I will be the victor of it all. I am a master at strategy, and to win this duel that is all I need. That and patience, and if nothing else I do have a lot of that. The Tomb Robber isn't stupid, not like all the others. He knows what I'm doing, and I know he thinks it's as funny as I do that they do everything I want. How they all bow at my feet.

Back then, I made mistakes. I became too absorbed in my powers; let the Shadow Games venture out of my control. Then that baka Seto had to go and screw things up by rising up against me. He knew then what that Tomb Robber knows now. Just how much I wanted to rule the world, how much I loved blood, suffering, and hate.

He tried to wrestle power from me then, trying to save the world from the chaos I would bring down upon it. Of course, history recorded things far different from what really happened; just who was the hero and who was the villain. Which worked to my advantage, of course. Everything usually does in the end.

I have all my memories, though I've led everyone to believe different. What more perfect stage setting then saying I need the Items to reclaim my memories? Of course, they've never thought about what I will really do when I have all the Sennen Items under my command. And that's fine and well because they are just sheep, mere props in this grand play of mine. Let them have their ignorance, even if it won't save them in the end.

~Everyone got twisted up

Everyone got behind my back and broke it

'Cause it's my world~

The truth of the matter was, I wasn't a good Pharaoh...at least, not in the way they think. My people were well fed, they had work and all...but what about what went behind the scenes? About all the bloody wars I triumphed in? About all the poor saps I executed in gruesome ways for far less then treason? Hahaha...I love these humans at times. They're so predictable. Of course, all that was written down was the 'good' things about me.

After all, I was the Pharaoh...like I'd want all my descendents to know every little thing I did. Besides, my Seer even foretold that one day, the distant future would play a large part in my destiny. In her dying breath, seconds before I'd killed her for collaborating with Seto, that all that I had done now would reflect on my in the future. And I'd pay for all the heinous acts I had committed. Ah, how wrong you were my little Seer. I've paid for nothing, because I did nothing wrong. The world is rightly mine, my personal playground to do what I wish with.

Ah, but those thousands of years in captivity within those shattered puzzle pieces...they were worse then any torment Osiris could have granted. Darkness. Pure unrelenting pain every moment. All I could do was feel, feel and feel the utter agony that ripped through my soul every second. Time held no real meaning for me, though. Pain was all I knew.

My hatred only grew and simmered over the centuries. I had not meant for myself to be bound in the Puzzle. Not at all. The point had only been to seal the Tomb Robber, his companion and some of the powers of the Shadow Games. Not all, of course, the majority of them laid in me. But that bastard Seto managed to interfere at the last moment, before my guard skewered him, altering my spell so that I was trapped inside them as well. Even changed it so only a completely pure being could release me.

Those that were loyal to me, they were few...but the Sennen Rod is truly a marvelous device you know, managed to get the Items into hiding before one my enemies tried to destroy them...thus shattering me. They did succeed though. The Puzzle was shattered not long after its arrival to the sanctuary.

My prison hadn't been so bad then. Painful, yes, but not so bad I couldn't tolerate it. When it was shattered...Ra above, that was true pain. An agony even I hadn't been able to bestow to that Tomb Robber before I'd sealed him. Hehehe...that bastard deserved to be sealed though. That's what he gets for desecrating tombs and defying me as a God among men.

And now, here I am. Walking once more in the world of mortal man with a new world ready to be seized at any moment. It will be mine, no matter who dares stand in my path. Funny how Yuugi's little friends never seem to care when I mind crush someone. Perhaps believing they were so evil they deserved to have their souls ripped from their bodies and crushed into oblivion.

Or maybe they're just happy it's not them and that I'm on 'their' side.

Fools. I'm on no one's side but my own. And I'll do anything to make sure I accomplish my goal. Nothing will stand in my way.

~1, 2, 3, here I come with the wicked~

~You're the love I never found~

The only one who could possibly stop me in my quest is my own Hikari, and he is far too weak to even attempt trying it. I can't hurt him physically, at least not enough where it will leave a mark, because that may give me away to his companions. And as much as it makes me balk at the thought, I do need them for the moment. Need them to help me get all the Items. Jounouchi isn't that bad of a dueler, nowhere near my level but not too bad.

Yuugi's mind is that of pure innocence, an innocence I'd love to crush in my hands. Just to see him bloodied and broken beneath my hands, whimpering in terror of all the darkness that dwells deep inside of me. I will protect him from others, if only because I need him to exist in this world until all the Items under my control, but also because he is so amusing.

His tears taste like the sweetest candy, his eyes shine with something that was lost to me so long ago. I care about him; in the way a master does his favorite slave. And what else is he, but a slave? My slave, though...no one else's. I'll do worse then crush the soul of any other who dares to think other wise.

He hates me, I know he does...but like it or not he does love me in a way. I've touched him in ways no other can ever dream of, I've dominated his mind so completely that he doesn't even know where he ends and I begin. And that's the way it's supposed to be. It's impossible for me to consider him an equal. Who could ever come close to being my equal anyway? Certainly not him.

I understand him more then his idiotic 'friends' ever will. They don't know him, not really. They know the image he shows, they know me better then him. After all, I am the 'Game King once Pharaoh that protects them.' Haha...it's really funny. Everything in this world is so freakin' hilarious! So different from mine, but exactly the same in most areas.

Sometimes though, I wonder...what would have happened back then in Ancient Egypt if I'd meet Yuugi then. If somehow, someway, he had been there. Would things have turned out different? Would I have turned so far into the deep night that is my soul? Who knows, in another life...maybe I could have loved him.

Love. I sneered instantly at myself. Love is a lie. Love is a tool to control others, and if you fall into that abyss you give up control of yourself. Something I will never do. Besides, I like it this way. With him whimpering and crying beneath my hands, with those pure orbs just staring up at me with a submission born of fear and terror. It's amazing to have such control over a spirit so innocent. I plan to change that though, eventually. Sadly, hate and anger are things a Hikari doesn't really know. It's harder to change something so pure, but I will. And then, he will be perfect. A broken, twisted mirror bended to reflect my image. Delicious.

I walked back toward my home. I could feel Yuugi through our link. He was sleeping, his mind for once empty of dreams. Guess I tired him out after our 'fun' when he punched the mirror. That was a surprising turn. Who'd of thought reflecting myself back at him would cause such a reaction. Hahaha.

Stupid, pathetic little weakling wouldn't survive a minute out there in the real world. They'd crush him in an instant. And I want that pleasure to be mine and no one else's. For when completely broken, he will be in every way mine. And even with all his weakness, he does have a staggering amount of will not to be crumpled after being with me so long. And that's all fine and well. Prolonging this only makes it that much more fun.

The lamb is blessed, as is the lion. So is the hunter. So Ra bless me in my future reign over this entire world...and...over Yuugi.
