Chapter 15: Spirits Galore!

^_^ I'm glad you thought Chapter 13 was funny, Lady of the Thread. I like it too. And I just thought I'd have the girl in that chapter be Miho, since I know she had a crush on Bakura in the first series. ^_~

"And let's see here...I don't think Mokuba's going to get to dance, sorry Wingweaver Hope. :'( At least not in this story..."

Yeah...but today is one of those special days, where we end a story and start our new one!

"Yep! ^_^ So here's the last chapter of this story, and then we'll give you the link to the first chapter of our new story!"

^^;; And there isn't really a hint in this chapter that gives away something in the next story, unfortunately. However, Bastet's conversation with Priest Seto back in chapter 12 might have some clues...^_~

Enjoy! And don't forget to review!

Chapter 15: Spirit's Galore

Seto's eyes widened as he looked at the door, where a bright blue glaring light was beaming into the dark dance room,(the lights had completely gone out due to the power of the Millennium Ring) getting brighter by the second, as if whatever were coming toward the door was getting closer.

"What's going on here?" he asked, glaring at Duke, Amber, and Tea.

Tea shrugged, nervously, as Mokuba grabbed onto his brother's arm.

"I don't know!" she cried hysterically.

Priest Seto gazed at the door, eyes narrowed.

"It's a loose spirit," he informed the others, floating over to Seto and Mokuba. (Though, they were the only two that heard him)

Meanwhile, many of the students, either frightened off the dance floor by Yami Bakura, or scared inside by the blue beams, were running toward the back of the room, taking cover behind the refreshment tables.

Tristan and Serenity were puzzle by the sudden rush to hide.

"What's going on here?" Tristan asked, holding Serenity closer, so she wouldn't get run over by the other students running by.

"Look out!" Yugi yelled at Joey and Mai, who were just passing by the doors when the two, blue-ish spirits crashed through, showering them with glass shards as they duck.

Several people screamed and the DJ ducked under his stereo as the first spirit flew through the room, cackling gleefully.

"What is that?!" Mai shrieked, as she and Joey got to their feet, glass crunching under their shoes as they looked at the two spirits.

Joey sighed.

"Eh...looked like two ghosts," he muttered.

Seto grabbed Mokuba's hand and pulled him down under the table just as the second spirit flew by. They were so close they could feel the wind from the ghost's dive ruffling their hair.

"More spirits?" Priest Seto exclaimed, dodging them. "This is absurd! I don't even remember seeing this many back in Ancient Egypt..."

Yami and Taerro ducked as the first ghost picked up the punch bowl and showered the students below with fruit juice, everyone screaming madly.

"Yuck!" Taerro muttered, his hair dripping in the sticky, sweet juice, trying to wipe his glasses off with his sleeve.

Yami looked around, trying to find Bakura in all the confusion. Amber and Duke had tried throwing dice at the ghosts, but that didn't work as the dice went through them. Tristan and Serenity, also fresh from a fruit juice shower, were now crouching down under another one of the snack tables.

Tea had joined Seto and Mokuba under their table, while Priest Seto was trying to find Yami.

"Drat," he muttered, not finding any sign of Yami, or Yugi's body.

Yami Bakura ducked as a cake went flying.

"This is chaos," he muttered, observing the cake hit the wall on the other side of the room.

An evil grin spread over his face.

"I like it that way," he cackled.

"You won't in a minute!" Yami declared from behind him, and as Yami Bakura whirled around to try to defend himself, Yami activated one of the Millennium Puzzle's powers, burying Yami Bakura's spirit deep within the Millennium Ring once again.

However, their problems were far from over.

"Someone call the police!" A cheerleader cried, running over to the phone that was hanging on the wall.

"No! Call animal control!" Another yelled.

"Call the Ghostbusters!" Duke yelled back at them.

The cheerleader blinked.

"Huh?" she asked, but was cut off by a noise near the doors.

"No need!" Came a voice from the broken doors, and everyone turned to see the three Ghostbusters standing in the doorway.

"Who are they?" Someone asked, scratching his head.

Peter sighed.

"All right, so we're not that well known here, yet," he grumbled, positioning his beam gun at one of the ghosts.

"Just stay down kids, and we'll have this over with it a snap," Egon promised, as the cheerleader by the telephone fainted at the sight of Peter's weapon.

Joey pulled Mai out of the way as Egon, Ray, and Peter fired at the blue ghosts that were still circling around the area, causing chaos in their wake.

"Don't get Yami again!" Tea cried, hoping Yami had gone back to his safe home in the puzzle.

"Gotcha," Peter muttered, more concentrating on capturing the ghost than paying attention to Tea's shouts from under the table.

"Or the priest!" Mokuba added as Priest Seto floated around, still searching for the Pharaoh.

"Where is he...?" he muttered, then spotted Yugi, Taerro, and Bakura hiding behind another table.

The beams from the Ghostbuster's guns caught the two ghosts up, and an electric-like charge began to bind them and suck them down into the open box Egon had laid out on the floor for them to be captured in.

"Get over here!" Seto hissed at the priest as he floated by. "You're just going to get caught."

Priest Seto raised his eyebrows, amazed Seto Kaiba cared what happened to him, and the floated behind them, safe from the beams.

"This is great!" Some kid yelled, watching the spirits get sucked into the box as if it were a light-show meant for entertainment.

The purple-hared girl whimpered, over by the front door as she watched fearfully.

"This is creepy!" she cried.

Yami appeared beside Yugi as he sat crouched beside Taerro and Bakura.

"Yami!" Yugi exclaimed, afraid Yami might get caught again by the Ghostbuster's.

"I'm fine, Yugi," Yami assured him, watching the Ghostbuster's work. "Do you think they need any assistance?"

Yugi turned around and watched as the two ghosts were sucked into the box on the floor, and smiled as the rest of the students broke into a cheer.

"No, I think they've got things under control," Yugi said through a smile, helping Taerro and Bakura to their feet again.

Bakura looked dazed as Taerro brushed the dust off of his own glasses.

"That was...quite interesting," Taerro said, blinking, as he pulled out another pocket encyclopedia of some sort.

"What are you doing now?" Yugi asked, raising an eyebrow.

"Maybe there's something in here on the Ghostbusters..." he muttered, flipping through the pages.

Yugi sighed, turning to Bakura.

"Are you okay?" he asked, looking at Bakura's dazed expression.

Bakura blinked.

"I'm...okay," he muttered, looking around. "Just so long as that girl doesn't want to dance with me anymore..."

Yugi giggled, looking around for Tea. Several of the students were now climbing out from under the tables, and out from behind the DJ's stereo. Tea was wiggling out from under the small table on which Seto's laptop was still lying, unharmed by the chaos.

"Tea!" he cried, running over to her.

Tea stood up and brushed the dust off of her pink coat.

"Yugi!" she replied, looking down at him.

"Are you okay?" he asked her.

Tea nodded.

"I'm fine...just..." she muttered, remembering Bastet and the message from Priest Seto.

"...just?" Yugi asked, tilting his head.

Tea sighed, and looked at the broken doors.

"Nothing really, just...I heard Bastet went back to Egypt," she said, slightly sadly.

Yugi's eyebrows went up.

"Oh?" he replied, surprised. "I thought that she was supposed to watch the area, or something like that." He replied, thinking hard.

Yami appeared beside his partner in a spiritual form, also puzzled by this news.

"She left that priest-spirit in charge," Tea said to them, looking over by Seto and Mokuba, who were both climbing out from under the table.

She couldn't see the spirit, but she knew he was there. Yami and Yugi, however, could both see Priest Seto. Yami frowned.

"Do you think he can be trusted?" Yami inquired, narrowing his eyes at the priest. "After what Ishizu told us about my past, I don't think..."

Yugi cut in.

"There's always room for change," he said with a smile, hoping to stop his partner from continuing. "You never know."

Yami sighed, shrugged, and then returned to the Millennium Puzzle.

* * * * * * * *

"That was horrifying!" Mai declared, picking a piece of glass off of her skirt. (It had torn a small hole in the fabric, much to her dismay.)

"I'll say," Joey replied, shaking a little as Peter this time, (Ray had wormed his way out of having to carrying the smoking box) carried the box outside, and back to their truck. (Not a pick-up truck. A large moving truck-ype thing is what I meant.)

The principal of the school climbed up onto the stage and talked to the DJ about what had caused his school party to turn into a zoo, while Amber and Duke helped Serenity and Tristan up. (One of the refreshment tables had toppled over on them)

"I'm ok," Tristan muttered, brushing off his coat.

"Me too," Serenity agreed, shivering, as she stood up.

The lights had come back on, illuminating the room completely, but also showing off the damage of the ghost intrusion. (Lucky for Bakura, since the two events, Yami Bakura and the ghosts, occurred so close together, everyone had forgotten about Bakura's strange behavior, and were instead buzzing about the ghosts, and talking to the Ghostbusters.)

"That's good," Amber replied, letting her shoulders slump down.

Duke nodded in agreement, wiping sweat off of his forehead.

"Man, we just can't get away from ghosts, can we?" he muttered jokingly.

Only Amber giggled.

* * * * * * * *

"Are you hurt?" Seto asked Mokuba, looking carefully at his brother.

Mokuba shook his head, smiling.

"No, I'm fine niisama," he replied looking around. "But that was wild!"

Priest Seto nodded, although no one had asked his opinion.

"Hm," he muttered, watching the Ghostbusters leave. "They seem to have a job of catching spirits..."

Seto sighed. He was tired. He'd had one too many adventures with spirits and supernatural beings for one week.

"Yep!" Mokuba replied. "Which is a good thing too!"

" long at they're catching the right spirits," he added quickly, looking at the priest.

Priest Seto smiled quickly, then looked back outside.

~~"Soon you will discover your true ability..."~~

What had Bastet meant by that? A spirit was a spirit, nothing more, right? Or was that where he was wrong...

He sighed. These were times when he wished he still had someone else who new about the past to talk to.

"Niisama?" Mokuba asked, tugging on his brother's sleeve, reading his brother's emotions.

Seto tiredly looked down at his younger brother.


"Can we go home?" he asked, looking around as the principal got up on the podium on stage to make an announcement.

Seto inwardly sighed with grateful relief.

"Sure," he replied, walking toward the door with his younger brother beside him, and, of course, his incarnate floating around near them.

Later that evening, the rest of the gang, and Mai, were outside, watching the stars as the students, one by one, went home with their friends, now that the party was over.

After cleaning up a bit, they were able to squeeze in a few more dances before midnight rolled around and it was time for the Back-To-School Party to end.

"That was fun, huh, Yugi?" Tea asked Yugi, as they at out on the field, looking up at the sky.

"Mm," Yugi agreed, his eyelids drooping a little.

Joey snickered a little.

"And tiring, I presume," he added, poking Yugi, jerking him out of his dose.

"Oh!" he exclaimed, blushing.

Amber grinned.

"Aside from the whole, dance-interrupted-by-loose-spirits thing, it was pretty fun," she commented, as a car zoomed away behind them.

Duke and Tristan nodded.

"This year's probably going to be another good one," Bakura commented.

Mai yawned, stretching her arms up in the air.

"I'm just glad I'm finished with school," she muttered with a wink at Joey.

Joey sighed sadly, more to play along with her than in actual sorrow.

"Some people get everything," he sighed, shaking his head.

Yugi giggled, looking back up at the stars again, Yami, unseen by most everyone else, beside him.

"This year IS going to be another adventure," Yugi yawned to his partner, who nodded.

"Yes..." he replied, thinking.

Perhaps he'd finally recover his memories, and discover the secrets of his past. Maybe he'd be able to set Yugi and Tea up on a date. And maybe they'd be able to keep away from other ancient spirits and magical events.

Yami laughed at the last thought.

There was always something or another following behind them. There was no way to escape that.

He grinned.

But together, they'd always be able to overcome whatever challenged them, that he knew for sure.
