Chapter 1

One day, a young boy named Yugi Muto was walking home from Domino High School with his friend, Tea Gardner. He lives right above the Turtle Game Shop with his grandpa. "Thanks for walking me home, Tea," Yugi said.

"Anytime," she replied. "Right now, I have to get to dance class."

"See you at school on Monday."

Yugi opened the door and saw his grandpa behind the counter, putting cards and booster packs into the display case. Grandpa looked up to see that his grandson had just came home. "Hi, Yugi," Grandpa greeted him. "I just need to finish putting these in the case. By the way, Joey is upstairs waiting for you."

"Thanks, Grandpa," Yugi replied and went upstairs, finding Joey sitting on the couch.

Joey Wheeler is one of Yugi's best friends. "Hey, Joey," he greeted the blonde-haired boy.

"Hey, Yugi. How are you?" Joey asked.

"I'm fine. What are you doing here?"

"I want to invite you over to Bakura's house for a party at 3:30 p.m. tomorrow."

"What kind of party?" Yugi asked him.

"You'll just have to wait and see, Yug," Joey replied.


He left the game shop a few minutes later with a big grin on his face. Yugi didn't understand what he was smiling about, but he bet this party is for someone special. He then went to his room to put his backpack down, and he later went to the dining room to have dinner. "So, Yugi, how was your day at school?" Grandpa asked.

"It was okay. I have homework to do, but they're not due until Monday. I can do it in the morning because Joey invited me to a party tomorrow afternoon at Bakura's house," Yugi replied, "but I'm not sure who it's for." Grandpa said for him to go ahead and go to the party, and he can take care of the business himself. Yugi didn't know what to say, but thanks to his grandpa. "You're welcome, Yugi," Grandpa replied.

Right after dinner, Yugi went back to his room to do some of his homework before he went to bed. Just before he sat down at his desk, a bright light surrounded him, and Yami stepped out from it. Yami is an ancient Egyptian pharaoh that sealed the magic of the Shadow Games away 5,000 years ago in Millenium items and now resides within the Millenium Puzzle himself. "Hi, Yami," Yugi greeted his other. "How are you?"

"I'm fine. How about you?" Yami asked, smiling.

"Same here. Joey invited me to a party, and I'm asking you if you want to go tomorrow," Yugi told him.

"Okay. What time is it at?" Yami asked.

"3:30 p.m.," Yugi replied and went back to finish his math homework.

"Alright. I'm going to bed now, Yugi," he said and went to sleep.

After a few minutes, he finished his homework and put his book away in his backpack. All he had left to do was English. He changed out of his school uniform and into his pajamas, set his alarm clock for 12:00 p.m. because Yami always like to sleep in late, and then went to sleep right next to him.
