Hello, thanks for reading my story! I know that it might be too serious, but oh well. I'm going to do a funny story soon. . . after I'm done with this story though. This is my first story, so please forgive my bad grammar.

The Millennium ritual

Chapter 1: The dream

"I don't know what to do with him. . ."

Huh? Thought Yugi, W-Where am I?

To Yugi, he seemed to be in an Egyptian throne room. All around him there were pillars everywhere, filled with exotic colors. To his right he can see beautiful paintings of water flowing, people working, and animals frolicking. To the front of him he can see the woman who talked earlier. She wore a long white dress, with gold wristbands and accessories on her arms. This woman had long black hair, with four blond streaks, two on each side of her head. Her head was in her hands, looking frustrated. Around her neck was a gold sphere hung on a gold cord. Before Yugi can wonder what the sphere was, he heard a small noise behind him. He turned around, to see a reflection of himself, hiding behind the wooden door.

Yugi rubbed his eyes. That can't be right, Yugi thought, my eyes aren't like that, and I'm not that tall.

Suddenly he got it.
It's Yami! He exclaimed.

And so he was. A younger form of Yami was hiding, obviously listening to what this woman is saying. The woman earlier, oblivious to Yami, was once again talking to the man in royal robes, his blue eyes looking worried.

"Why does he have to do this to me? After all I have taught him, he goes off pretending he can do whatever he pleases! When will he learn that with each life he destroys, another is suffering the consequences?"

Yugi froze. Each life he destroys?

The man to the side of the woman comes up and pats her back. "Do not worry, your highness, it was not your fault. The decisions Prince Yami makes is his own, not yours."
"*sigh* But that is not the point!" she exclaimed, arising from the gold chair she sat upon, her dark green eyes flaring. "It does not matter whose fault it is! All that matters is that Yami has once again beheaded one of the servants, causing their family to suffer!"

"But," said the man, "he is the crown prince of . . ."

"I know of his position, Ryes!" the woman snapped. The man called Ryes jumped at her voice. She sighed. "I do know of his position, but he has to learn that being the Crown Prince of Egypt is more than having servants and chariot rides. Being Crown Prince is more than that, and he needs to learn that." She said, her voice shaky. "I don't want to lose any more people Ryes." She put her head down, her eyes filled tears. "He needs to understand. He has to. I am the one who is supposed to protect him. And if I am not there to help him, who will?"

Yugi turned around, to see Yami with confusion on his face. Beep! Beep! Beep! Beep! Beep! Beep! Beep!

Yugi woke up, with the same look of confusion Yami had in the dream. He didn't understand. Why did I have this dream? What does it mean? Who was that woman? What connections does she have with Yami? Yugi thought. He looked at his duel monsters alarm clock. 8:49. "Oh no! I'm late for school!" he screams, running out of bed to put on his school uniform. Grabbing his lunch and a bagel on the way downstairs, he quickly says bye to Grandpa, forgetting everything about his abnormal dream.

To be continued. . .
