Gomen Nasai! Well, here's your ch.5. I'm saving the review responces until the end from now on. I hope you enjoy this chapter.
Seto sighed as he went through papers that scattered the oak table top that was his desk.
He glanced out the window that took up most of the wall behind his desk.
It was getting dark out.
Looking to the digital clock next to his computer, he read it to be 8:30.
He looked back at the contracts in his hand before setting them back on the table, and picking up the wireless phone.
Jou left. He didn't look back. He didn't need to to know that Shizuka was following him.
"Jou! Katsuya! Stop!" The burnette cried from down the hall.
He couldn't handle all of this.
Not now. Not when he was so god damned happy. Not when he was supposed to be in love with the man he had sworn to hate the rest of his life.
"Katsuya, I said stop!" Shizuka was livid.
"What, Shizuka? What do you expect me to do? Just take it? I don't want this! Can't you see that? This wasn't what I wanted! I was supposed to be with Mai! I was... I was supposed... to be with..." Jou stopped, falling to his knees, he held his face in his hands as he sobbed.
"Jou? Jou are you crying?" Shizuka questioned, anger gone, as she knelt by her brother.
"Shizuka... I can't do this!" He cried, as Shizuka leant over to cradle his shaking form.
"Jou, what's happened to you? What happened, Jou. Please... tell me. I'll listen." Shizuka soothed, pulling a strand of hair back behind her ear.
Jou looked up, wiping his face clean of tears, and nodded.
Yugi Motou sat at the kitchen table, ramen and chopsticks at hand as he ate his dinner.
The T.V. before him screened Sakana-Kun, a man who was obsessed with fish, fish hat upon his head.
Yugi looked up from the screen when Yami entered the room, book in hand.
"'i 'ami." Yugi smiled through his Ramen, causing the older to chuckle.
"Eat before you talk, Aibou..." Yami smiled as he set his book down onto the table, setting his reading glasses on top of it.
Yugi swallowed, and smiled up at his other half.
"Want some?" He offered, gesturing to the bowl with his chopticks.
Yami chuckled once more, letting a hand rest on Yugi's cheek.
"No, thank you." He smiled, leaning down to kiss his forehead.
Yugi giggled at the exchange, kissing Yami's neck as he was pulling away.
"Are we still going to the beach tomorrow?" Yugi questioned, peering up pleadingly into crimson eyes.
"Of course, Aibou." Yami nodded, as the phone rang.
He looked questiongly to the phone before walking across the kitchen to the phone.
"Hello?" Yami asked into the reciever.
"Yami? It's me, Kaiba." Came the troubled voice.
"I need your help..."
Jou sipped at his tea slowly, savoring the lemon and honey taste.
"So, this guy was just stand there? In the garage? You didn't recognize him?" Shizuka questioned after having heard Jou's story.
He shook his head sadly.
"No... He started to say these... things." His face scrunched up in confusion.
"I didn't recognize a word he said. It was in some other language..." He finished, looking down into his deep green tea.
"And all he said was in another languge?" Shizuka asked, stirring her tea with a spoon.
Jou looked up, slightly glaring, before nodding.
"Oh.. wait. He did say something... He said..." Jou's eyes widened.
"He said... something about going down a different path. That I didn't belong with Mai..." He whispered.
"Jou, are you sure you didn't dream this?" The brunette looked to her brother, who glared angrilly at her.
"I did not dream this!" He cried, causing Shizuka to glare back.
"Jou, I'm just trying to help you..." She explained, setting her mug onto the coffee table between them.
Jou sighed, running a hand through his hair.
"I know... I'm sorry." He took in a shaky breath.
"Yes?" She looked to her brother.
"What did you mean when you said... that you know what it's like?"
Yugi watched Yami intently as he hung up the phone.
"Yami, who was that?" Yugi asked as he got to his feet, bowl in hand.
Yami turned to him slowly.
"It seems it's happened sooner than I had expected..." He murmured quietly.
"What?" Yugi questioned, walking towards the sink.
"Nothing, Aibou. That was Kaiba-kun..." Yami trailed off, wiping his forehead and looked thoughtfully to the floor.
"Kaiba-kun?" Yugi turned away from cleaning his dish to give Yami a quizzical look.
"Is there something wrong?" Ther smaller ones eyebrows had furrowed.
"Yes, Aibou... It's Jou." Yami explained reluctantly.
A clank was heard as Yugi's dish slipped from his hands, chipping as it fell into the sink.
Seto leaned back against his chair, rubbing his temples.
He looked back at the clock.
It was late.
He sighed. He had hardly gotten anything done that day, his concentration drifting to the expression of his blonde lover that morning in bed.
He grunted, hand rubbing his chin thoughtfully.
He thought to his phone call with Yami.
The 5,000 year old Pharoah had said it was expected. If it was expected... why hadn't he warned him?
His head pounded from the stress he was undergoing.
"Why are you doing this, Jou?" He whispered into his empty office.
He shook his head of his thoughts before reaching down to grab his breifcase.
Snapping his laptop shut, he placed it inside the large metal case, as well as a few papers he could finish before he slept that night, and stood to leave.
He looked over his shoulder out into the dark night outside.
Hopefully, he thought, he could change Jou's attitude when he got home.
The two Jounouchi siblings had sat in the living room for the past hour.
When he'd asked her that question, an hour ago,
Jou smiled to his sister as they recalled events of their childhood.
From the day Shizuka was brought home, Katsuya being jealous of the newborn's attention, to the day when Jou left for college.
The two laughed together, shared tears together, and reminicised together.
"And... and remember the time when you an' mom visited. It was my birthday..." Jou laughed, unable to continue.
"And you were sitting in front of your cake. No idea we were behind you." Shizuka smiled, head supported by a hand, as he elbow leaned against the stand beside the couch she sat on.
Jou nodded, laughter still flowing from his throat.
"You pushed my head into the cake..." He smiled at the memory.
Shizuka laughed softly, stopping only when she heard the soft wailing of Aiko from upstairs.
"Jou... I..." She gestured towards the stairs, his eyes widened as he, too heard the sobs.
He nodded as she stood.
"Shizuka, wait..." He sighed, standing up as well.
"I'll come too." He said softly.
A smile spread across her face.
"Ok." She whispered, waiting for her brother to stand beside her before both of them made their trek up the stairs.
The entered the baby's room for the second time that day, Shizuka ahead of Jou as she picked up the wailing bundle.
"Shizuka..." He whispered, curious now, as he stepped towards her.
"Yes, Katsuya?" She asked, helping the baby with a bottle of warmed milk, testing it on her hand first.
"You never answered my question..."
Seto stared out into the dark streets from his limo's window, eyes narrowed slightly.
He was rather embarrassed to face Jou again, after what had happened that morning.
He let his hand wander to the ring that lay upon his ring finger.
He smiled as he recalled the vows he and Katsuya had made to each other on their wedding day.
He remembered how shocked and surprised his friends had been at the time, not thinking that they would have been able to stay together that long.
It was kind of a stun to himself as well.
Watching Jou walk down the aisle was something he'd never forget.
He had been so nervous, so breathtaken.
He'd stumbled over his words when asked to repeat the priests statements. And Jou had giggled at his efforts. And he had glared, fighting down a blush.
After the ceremony. There was a fantastic party to celebrate their uniting.
Jou's friends had expressed their shock then, perhaps they had had too much sake?
He hadn't care for the words that had been presented to him from those who couldn't belive it.
All he cared about was that Jou had made him the happiest man in the world.
And he had thought the same...
"Master Kaiba, we have arrived, sir." Came the voice from the driver's seat, old graying eyes looked to him from the rear-view mirror.
"Right." He breathed, nodding to his driver.
"Thank you." He said to the elder as he slipped out of the car.
"You have a good night, sir. Take care." The driver responded.
"And you too. Take care." Kaiba smiled slightly as he turned from the car, heading up the steps to the mansion.
"Katsuya... I... I never told you this. I didn't want to. I was afraid of what you would think..." Shizuka started, rocking the baby slightly.
"Shizuka..." He whispered, worried from the expression upon her face.
She paused, brushing some hair from the baby's eyes, blinking down at it.
A tear rolled down her cheek.
"Shizuka..." He whispered again, reaching forward and wiping the tear from her cheek, she looked at him surprised that she had cried.
She took in a deep, shaky breath.
But before she could continue...
"Katsuya?" Came a voice from the doorway.
They both looked up in surprise. This time, it wasn't Shizuka.
Jou realized that when a dark haired male entered the room.
