Summary: You can't learn to love the one you hate and you can't hate the one you love. So what if the two are one in the same? Yami Bakura/Yami Yugi Darkshipping!

Bakura sighed as he came and sat down next to Ryou.

"What is it Yami?" Ryou asked, placing his book down on his lap.

"Why do I have to go to school with you Ryou? Everyone thinks I'm still in the shadow realm and they all hate me." Bakura said, looking up. "What's the point?"

"It will be good for you. Besides you wish to learn more, right?"

"Well, yes."

"Then you'll come. Besides, make a few changes and nobody will know who you are." Ryou smiled softly. "You've changed Bakura and If those guys can't accept that, then that's their problem."

"Thanks Ryou."

"No problem Bakura. Now hurry up and get ready, we have to leave soon."

"I'm on it." Bakura said, running up the stairs to his room.

"Oh and Bakura!"


"You have to wear the school uniform."

"Damnit." Bakura cursed.

Five minutes later, Bakura came down and met Ryou at the front door.

"So what are you to tell everyone when the ask who I am?" Bakura asked as they headed out the door.

"That you're my twin brother who just came to Japan from Britain." Ryou told him.

"You think that will work?" Bakura asked.

"Yes, but I can't call you Bakura seeing that's my last name and for other obvious reasons." Ryou replied. "I know, how about Ryoku Bakura?"

"I guess I can live with that." Bakura said.

"Great!" Ryou smiled. "Ba... Ryoku, you don't have the millennium ring on do you?"

"Yes." Bakura nodded.

"That's great."

"Let's just say that dad got a second one made for me, and that yours is the original." Bakura smiled.

"That's actually not a bad idea Yami."

"Yami? Who is this Yami, you speak of?" Bakura asked, looking totally clueless.

Ryou laughed at the look on Bakura's face. "Come on, we need to get you signed up before the bell goes."

"Oh joy." Bakura sighed. "Hey look! It's the Pharaoh!"

"Yes, he goes here as well but don't call him that." Ryou said. "Now let's get inside before they see us."

Together the two walked down to the main office, receiving strange stares from the other students the entire way there. Soon the two entered the office and went into the principal's office.

"Hello Ryou Bakura." Mr. Kerik smiled. "And who is this?"

"This is Ryoku, my twin brother." Ryou smiled. "He just came to Japan from Britain."

"Well Ryoku. It's nice to meet you. I wasn't aware you had a brother Ryou, a twin for that matter." Mr. Kerik smiled. "Hopefully you're a lot like Ryou here Ryoku. Now run along to you class Ryou, I'll get your brother all settled in."

"Okay sir." Ryou nodded. "Would you mind putting him in all the same classes as me? I'm afraid he doesn't know Japanese very well yet."

"It's no problem at all. Now hurry on out, you don't want to be late."

"Yes sir. I'll save you a seat Ryoku."

"Bye Ryou." Bakura sighed.

After leaving the office, Ryou ran straight to his first class, getting through the door just as the bell rang.

"Well you're cutting it close today."

"Hello Yugi." Ryou smiled.

"Good morning Ryou." Yugi smiled back, sitting next to Yami.

Ten minutes later

"All right class, I was just informed from our principal that we have a new student coming to our class." Mrs. Miko said.

Soon the classroom was filled with excited chatter.

"Wow. I new kid, I wonder if it's going to be a boy or a girl." Joey said.

"Hopefully it's a hot chick." Tristan grinned.

"Is that all you two ever think about?" Tea asked, from her spot in front of Ryou.

"No, we think of other things as well." Joey said.

"Duel monsters don't count." Tea said.

"Oh. Well in that case." Tristan said. "I guess we don't."

"Hey Ryou, you're the only one in this class who doesn't have anyone sitting beside you. I guess that means he's going to be sitting next to you." Yugi pointed out.

Ryou nodded, putting a small smile on his face. "Your right Yugi."

"Class! Please, everyone take your places. The new student has arrived." The teacher announced. "And it seems we have another transfer student from Britain."

Soon the class was loudly talking again.

"Well that's a surprise. Maybe you'll know this person Ryou." Yami said, speaking for the first time.

"I really doubt that." Ryou smiled. "Britain is a rather big place."

"Class, I'd like you all to meet, Ryoku Bakura." The teacher said, with a surprised voice.
