A Part

By The Inspector

Warning:  Dark, mentions of murder and slow, painful death.

Summery:  Ryou Bakura point of view…a Bakura that they didn't realize existed.


Hi, Anzu.

No, it's me.  He's not back yet.  He will be, don't worry.

What's that?  Oh, no, I won't untie you…or take the gag off.  Sorry, Anzu.  I just stopped by to ask you a question.

You seem surprised.  Well, I guess that shouldn't surprise me.  You and your friends think you can tell us apart, but we are more alike than they know.  Or you know.

It wasn't always like that, though.  There was a time when I wanted to be part of your little group.  When I wanted to pretend that I was better than him.

But you knew, didn't you?  Deep down, you knew.  Is that why you never included me?

Don't know what I'm talking about, Anzu?  Your little 'Friendship speeches.'  You said, no say, them so often that I thought…but no.  You never included me, you know, Anzu.  And I was wondering why.  It was always, 'My friends Yugi, Jou, and Honda.'  You never included me.  And I was willing to give up my Other just to hear, 'And Ryou.'

Are you crying, Anzu?  Do you feel bad about that?  I bet you never even realized.

It's okay, I tend to blend into the background.  I don't blame you.

Besides, I don't need to be included in your speeches now.  My Other and I don't need anyone.  And he's promised I don't have to watch the slaughter if I don't want.  Isn't that nice of him?

What are you trying to say, Anzu?  Please?  Please what?  Are you scared, Anzu?  I used to be.  The dark isn't so bad, once you get used to it.

Go ahead and cry, Anzu.  I don't mind.

But yes, the question.  My Other told me to ask it.  He thinks you will give me the answer more freely than if he asked.  But then, he doesn't ask nicely.  He wants to know which one of you Yugi and his Other would die to save.  He will let you go unharmed if you give us the answer.


You seemed shocked.  That's okay, take your time to think.

I didn't understand most of that, but I'll take it that you're not going to tell me.  I didn't know that you knew that many swear words.

Alright then, we'll start with you.

He's right outside now.

The video camera?  Well we have to send the message to Yugi and his Other someway.

Say hi to my Other, Anzu.

And Anzu?  Be sure you scream nice and loud for Yugi.


Author's Note:  I have NO clue where that came from.
