Oh so many wonderful reviews full of people telling me I need to update, who are not Mikari. On to the story! Before Windy glares at me to death.---


A week had past and everything was back to normal, or as close to normal as it could get. Laria was perfectly fine, her hair was back to the normal brown and her eyes were bright blue again, possibly even brighter. Her skin was back to her normal tan, with the provided help from the tanner.

Laria's life had never been better. She and Seto were finally getting along, for the most part. He had even offered to help Laria with her dueling. She was actually becoming a very good duelist and could now beat Joey without any help. Which she realized, with reassurance from Seto, was not a big accomplishment.

Laria had also found love, after being turned down by Malik. The first day of school was somewhat awkward, mostly for Laria and Malik. However, of course, Yani took control of the situation and "accidentally" let it slip that Ryou loved Laria. After that, Ryou was practically forced by Yani to ask Laria out. Laria always thought Ryou was cute, so they were now a couple.

Nevertheless, today was a day of celebration. Today was October 25th, Seto and Laria's 16th birthday. Because of that, they were having a party, which was mostly Laria's idea. Seto really did not have a problem with it because she was only inviting a few people.

Yani stood outside on the back porch. The sun was setting, turning the sky beautiful shades of red and violet. Atemu looked out and saw her standing there. He walked outside and put his arms around her. She jumped.

"I thought I told you not to do that," Yani gave him a sideways glance, "It scares me."

"Didn't I tell you to stop spacing out?"

"No you said not to space out in the middle of the park," Yani grinned and Atemu rolled his eyes.

"It's the same thing."

"Not in my book," Yani said glancing back at the sky.

"So, what are you doing out here anyway?" Atemu asked.

"Watching the sun set," Yani answered, "Like I used to do in Egypt."

Atemu laughed slightly.

"Well don't stay out here to long; you'll miss all the fun. I think there bringing the cake out soon."

"Cheesecake?" Yani asked excitedly, Atemu nodded, "I've taught my hikari well"

Yani grabbed Atemu's arm and dragged him inside. They got in the living room just as they were lighting the candles. There was a plain white cake with white frosting, lots of white frosting, and a cheesecake.

After cake and ice cream, it was time to open presents. Laria got all Duel Monster cards, with the exception of a lime green and yellow Tomigochi from Ryou, and Seto got a bunch of Blue Eyes White Dragon stuff.

"Is that all the presents?" Malik asked. Laria looked around.

"Looks like it."

"No, you forgot mine." Yani said.

"Where are they?" Seto asked. Yani closed her eyes and the Millennium Earrings glowed. Two presents appeared.

"Kaiba, open yours first."

Seto picked up the odd shaped gift and ripped the paper off. His eyes went wide.

"Bluesy!" he exclaimed hugging it as hard as he could.

"Alright, hikari, your turn."

Laria grinned and picked up her gift. She practically shredded the wrapping paper trying to get off. When she finally did, her eyes went wide too.

"A new deck of Uno cards!" Laria exclaimed opening it.

"I thought the Uno Queen might need some new cards. You've had those old ones for ages!" Yani said.

"No, you just think you might be able to beat me if I used different cards." Laria smirked.

"Oh that reminds me," Yani said, "you and the King of Games need to play a few rounds."

"Oh yeah" Atemu said, Laria turned to him and held out the deck of cards.

"Bring it on Schmidty!"
