Love in Blind Eyes

A Yu-Gi-Oh! Fic by [Kitty: Okay, this is my second Ancient Egypt fic, for those who have read Pharaohs and Princesses. -_-; I deleted it for a couple reasons. One, I couldn't build upon it or the sequel any longer. Two, it was outdated. Three, I just didn't see any point in continuing since barely any one was reviewing. So now, I'm writing an Egypt fic to take its place. I'm trying to make it better and longer than Ph&Pr and St&Sh, so do tell me what you think. ^_^

Lina: There are some name changes for Egypt. Here:

Jou = Joey/Jounouchi

Anzu = Tea/Anzu

Titian = Tristan/Honda

Trinity = Serenity/Shizuka

Isis = Ishizu (don't know her Japanese name... ?_?)

Seito = Seto

Atem = Yami Yugi/Yami no Yugi

Kitty: Okay, I'm only going to say this once: I don't own Yu-Gi-Oh. I only own Suzuki. R&R!] Chapter One: Felt Meetings

Atem sat on his balcony, looking at the stars and thinking about his new place as Pharaoh.

/I can't be Pharaoh,/ he thought to himself, /I've never ruled anything, how can I suddenly rule all Egypt? Why me? Why not someone else?/

"Hey, Atem," said a happy voice.

Atem turned. "Hey, Jou," he greeted dully.

"What's up, man?" his best friend asked, "You okay?"

"Yeah, I guess," Atem replied with a sigh, "Just pre-ruling jitters."

Jou laughed. "You'll do fine, Atem. I mean, you've been taught to do it your whole life, and besides, it's your destiny. The Gods willed it."

Atem smiled. "I should've expected that you'd be that optimistic. But thanks."

"What are friends for?" Jou said dismissively. Then he remembered why he was there. "Oh, right, Isis wants to see you."

Atem frowned. His counselor Isis only wanted to see him if there was a very important issue at hand. "About what?"

"I don't know," Jou admitted, "But there was a girl with her."

Atem rolled his eyes. "If it's another suitor..."

"It ain't," Jou said, "She was a peasant."

Atem raised an eyebrow.

"I think something's wrong with her, though," said Jou, "I tried talking to her, but she didn't even look at me."

Atem's eyebrow went higher. "That's odd. If she was foreign, she would've at least tried to communicate."

Jou shrugged. "Anyway, Isis says it's urgent."

Atem nodded. "I'll keep that in mind." ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Atem entered the staff room to find Isis, with a girl next to her.

She looked quite young, around 14 or 15, around Atem's own age. She had light brown hair and unfocused indigo eyes.

Atem stared. The girl was blind.

"Isis?" he said to announce his presence.

Isis turned, but the girl did nothing.

"Oh, my Pharaoh," Isis said courteously, "I was hoping you'd be here soon."

"Who is this?" Atem asked, gesturing toward the girl. Again, the girl did nothing.

"Her name is Suzuki. Her friends call her Suzu. I found her in the market place today......... she has magic within her, my Pharaoh."

"I see," Atem said, sounding skeptical, raising an eyebrow.

"It's true," Isis said patiently, "However, there is a problem. She's blind... but she's also deaf."

Atem stared. "Then how do you communicate?"

Isis looked at him significantly, and then grabbed Suzuki's hand. She did movements on Suzuki's hand with her own, and Atem gawked as Suzuki nodded.

"What did you say?" Atem asked.

"I told her a guest was here," Isis said, "Come here, I need to introduce you to her."

Atem stepped closer, feeling awkward. Isis grabbed Suzuki's hand and put it to Atem's face. He blushed.

"What are you doing?"

"Shh," Isis said, "This is how she meets you. She feels your face and figures out how tall you are so she can identify you later."

Suzuki felt Atem's face, his hair and then his shoulders. She measured his shoulders compared to her height, which was up to her rib.

Atem blinked. She was rather smart for a blind/deaf girl.

Isis grabbed her hand again and spelled something out. Suzuki felt around in front of her.

"What is she doing?" Atem asked.

"She's trying to find you," Isis said, "Let her grab your hand."

Atem consented. Suzuki felt his hand, and spelled something.

"What did she say?"

"Your name as if in question," said Isis, "Put her hand to your face and nod yes."

Atem did so, and Suzuki smiled.


Atem stared. "What is she doing?"

"She's trying to say your name," Isis explained, "She only became deaf recently, even if she was blind since birth. She knows how to speak, but she doesn't know how it sounds."

"At...em," Suzuki said, "Atem."

Atem gawked. "She said my name!" Isis smiled.

"You should learn a little sign language so you can speak with her," Isis said, "That way, it isn't so difficult to communicate."

Atem shrugged. "Alright." ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

[Kitty: Okay......... first chapter.

Lina: Cool, Hikari.

Kitty: ^___^ THANKS!

Yugi: R&R, people!]
