The bright afternoon sun blazed in the sky. Many of the children were tanning on the beach or playing in the water. Ten-year-
old Seto looked out at the beach and vast ocean from his bedroom window and sighed. All  the children were having 
fun this summer except him. When he'd heard that Gozaburo was taking him and Mokuba to the summerhouse in Osaka, Seto
 had hoped he might get to enjoy the beach. Instead he had been faced with mountains of schoolwork. He brought 
his attention back to the textbook in his hand. He read the chapter quickly. It was all about the battle at Sekigahara. Then he
 began doing his math assignment. Just as he finished, the door to the room opened. In stepped Gozaburo. A young 
woman followed him. She had long blonde hair down to her shoulders. Seto recognized her as Takako Kaiba, Gozaburo's 
wife. 
 
 
 "How are the lessons going?" he asked coldly 
 "I'm finished with my assignment," Seto answered meekly 
 "Good then start on next week's lessons," Gozaburo ordered 
   "Oh Danna –sama, he's just a child. What's the harm in letting him go out to the beach today? Please?" Takako asked. 
 
Gozaburo considered it for a moment then relented. 
 
 "Alright fine, but be back in time for dinner," he ordered 
Seto stood and bowed to Gozaburo. He would be in trouble if he did not show respect. The gratitude he felt toward Takako
 for freeing him from his work for a little while was tremendous. Gozaburo left. 
 
 
 "Domo Arigato, Takako," Seto said 
She smiled and ruffled his hair. 
 
 
 "Go on," she smiled 
Then she went after Gozaburo. Seto was glad he at least had one friend in this house. 
 
~I'll always remember
It was late afternoon
It lasted forever
And ended too soon
You were all by yourself
Staring up at a dark gray sky
I was changed~
 
He grabbed his bathing suit and changed quickly. He then found Mokuba and invited him to come along. He rushed out onto 
the sand. He splashed in the water for a moment. Then the sky turned pewter gray. Drops began to fall and 
people rushed from the beach to shelter. 
 
 "Go back in, Mokuba," Seto ordered 
                "But...
                "I'll come in a minute," he yelled back. 
'Great. The one day Gozaburo lets me out of the house and it rains,' Seto thought, staring up at the sky. The drops ran down 
his face, soaking him and cooling him. Nearby a young girl watched from behind a pier. She approached 
him shyly. Seto noticed her. 
 
 
 "I'm Seto," Seto said, introducing himself
Seto found the young girl very pretty. She had sapphire eyes and long silver hair. She smiled at him. 
 "I like that name. I'm Kisara," the young girl answered. 
 
Seto followed her under the pier. The two of them huddled under. Soon the storm had blown over, and the sun was out again. 
Kisara smiled and stretched in the warm sunlight.
 
 "Tag!" Seto called out, touching Kisara on the arm. 
He raced off laughing. Kisara followed giggling. Soon she had reached him and tagged his arm. He turned and she raced away
 playfully. They played for an hour, and then the two of them stopped and breathed. They smiled.
 
 "Race you back to the ocean," Kisara shouted as she rushed off again. Seto ran after her. He watched her suddenly
 bump into a young blonde boy. The blonde wore a green t-shirt and beside him stood a young girl with red-brown hair. Seto 
raced to where they stood.
 
 "I'm sorry," Kisara said 
 "Naw s'okay," the young boy answered 
Seto reached them and helped Kisara up. 
 
 "I'm Kisara. Sorry again for bumping into you," she said 
 "Joey, and this is my sister, Serenity. Don't worry about it," the young boy said 
 "Well nice meeting you," Serenity said 
She raced back down to the ocean. Seto went with her. The two splashed each other. Dinnertime came too soon, and Seto
 was forced to go back to the house. 
 
~In places no one would find
All your feelings so deep inside (deep inside)
It was then that I realized
That forever was in your eyes
The moment I saw you cry
The moment that I saw you cry~
 
Dinner was a silent affair. An emergency photo shoot had called Takako back to Domino for the night. So, dinner was only 
Seto, Mokuba, Gozaburo, and Hobbs. Hobbs watched silently as the three ate. Gozaburo glared at young Seto. Seto
 was wondering about Kisara and what she was doing. Would he ever see her again? Meanwhile Kisara was at her home
 wondering what Seto was doing. 
 
 
~It was late in September
And I'd seen you before (and you were)
You were always the cold one
But I was never that sure
You were all by yourself
Staring up at a dark gray sky
I was changed~
 
Kisara wandered through the woods on her way back from school. Her parents had moved to Domino that fall. She breathed
 deep. The woods seemed so peaceful at this time of day. She felt hidden and safe among the trees. A September breeze blew
 her hair. The breeze picked up a bunch of scarlet and yellow leaves and fluttered them around her. Suddenly, she noticed
 someone. He was standing there looking up at the sky. She got closer and realized it was Seto, the young boy she'd met at
 the beach. She also noticed that he was crying. 
 
~In places no one would find
All your feelings so deep inside (deep inside)
It was then that I realized
That forever was in your eyes
The moment I saw you cry~
 
She watched him quietly. The tears were soft and they trailed down his face gently. His back was against the tree. 
 
~I wanted to hold you
I wanted to make it go away
I wanted to know you
I wanted to make your everything, all right....~
 
As Kisara watched, a warm feeling saturated her heart. There and then she knew she did not want him to cry ever again. She
 wanted him to smile always. She wanted to make him happy. It was then that she fell in love. 
 
~I'll always remember...
It was late afternoon...
In places no one would find...~
 
She walked over to him. Seto heard footsteps on the leaves and looked up. He recognized Kisara immediately. He turned 
away to hide the tears. She went to him and wrapped her arms around him. Seto could smell the soft scent of ivory 
soap and chamomile on her skin. He was calmed all over. He wrapped his arms around her and cried softly into her hair. She
 did not know how long they stayed like that. She only knew that she felt so warm in his arms. She could feel his 
heart beating against hers. 
 
 "What happened?" she asked 
 "Gozaburo he…" Seto began 
Seto went silent. 
 
 "Seto, its alright you can tell me," Kisara said 
She looked up into his eyes. They were ocean blue and the most soulful eyes she had ever seen. She lost herself in them for a 
moment. She could look into them forever. The wind blew bringing a fresh shower of scarlet and gold leaves 
down on them. She stood on her tiptoes and kissed him. It was sweet and gentle. Kisara wished that the kiss could last 
forever. 
 
 
~In places no one would find
All your feelings so deep inside (deep inside)
It was then that I realized
That forever was in your eyes
The moment I saw you cry~

They broke apart, each of them blushing. She promised to meet him there again tomorrow. Seto ran back toward the mansion and Kisara returned to her home. They were able to meet many more times. Each time was peaceful. Sometimes they talked about anything and everything. Sometimes they just sat in silence simply being together. Unfortunately at the end of the year Kisara's family moved again.

"I don't want you to go," Seto said, hugging Kisara tight

            "I wish I didn't have to leave," Kisara answered

The couple simply held each other and cried. Neither wanting to say goodbye.

*************Six years later************

Sixteen-year-old Seto walked into a bookstore. An Autumn breeze blew into the store as he walked in.His Lit. teacher had assigned a new novel for the class and he needed to find a copy. He reached for a copy of the book, then a hand brushed his. He followed it down to a young woman. A young woman he had not seen in years.

"Kisara?" he asked

             "Seto?" she responded

I do not own Yu-gi-oh

When Takako calls Gozaburo Danna it means husband. Remember that flashback with Joey and Serenity at the beach? I saw it today and got the idea to add it to the beach scene. The first part doesn't go with the lyrics at all, but hopefully I made up for that with the second part. The song is called Cry and it's by Mandy Moore. I always wanted to see a songfic for Seto written to this song. Thansk to www.azlyrics.com for the lyrics.Thank you for reading and please review.
