Flame: My influence in this story is very noticeable, hee hee hee.

Dancer: Your psycho is showing. Cut it out.

Flame: New YGO story! I read a book about a ghost and just had to write this. Ain't I a pill?

Dancer: If you review, we update other stories as well. Ok?

Flame: And while you're at it, go read AngelStarfire's stuff. She's a yaoi writer, so beware! She's not nice if you're mean. . .

Dancer: This is set from Shay's POV. He's a bit of a street kid, so he's got a problem with cussing. That's all. Gets bloody later on, maybe, though.
Disclaimer:

Flame: This sucks. This is really depressing. Why do I have to do this?

Dancer: Because they might sue you for Bobgod.

Flame: No! My Bobgod! ::hugs her computer, "Bobgod".::

I do not own YGO. I don't own much of anything. Except Shay. He's only the main character, though, so I suppose we can't forget him.

People say there's a light at the end of the tunnel. People say death is painless. People say there's an afterlife. People say death sets you free.

Don't I wish they were right.

Oh, there's an afterlife, all right. The luckless and, if you'll pardon the language, the stupid bastards sometimes manage to become ghosts. I don't know which I was. I prefer not to judge myself.

I don't think I'd like the answer too much.

I hate stereotypes. It's annoying when people look at me and say "ghost", then automatically assume I'm a 'disgruntled soul who cannot find peace.' That's assuming they're not running away and screaming. Kinda like I'm a monster. Nah, I'm just some dead guy.

I mean, come on, how hard is that to accept?

Besides, in my haunting grounds, Seto Kaiba was the real monster. And that kid Yugi's yami. Yami's and ghosts don't mix, especially not the all- powerful Pharaoh and the street-kid-slash-punk wannabe.

I'm getting ahead of myself here. Let me take you back in time and try not to sound too cliché-ish. Back to when I was first reborn as a ghost. Back to when I still remembered nothing. Back to when I was stuck in the one place that is about as far from heaven as you could possibly get.

Back to when I haunted the Kaiba mansion. ~*~*~*~*~

Flame: Ah, yes, Shay has my delicate way with words.

Dancer: That's for sure. Review or I'll sic Flame on you!
