Disclaimer: I do not own Yuugiou or any of its characters.

I finally have up the third chapter! It's kind of a boring chapter, though. It was a little rushed. Oh, and on the second chapter, at the very end where it says 'the angry stares of Anzu and Yami', that should be 'Anzu and Yuugi'.

Okay, here's the third chapter!


Chapter Three - Lies


Yami stared intently at Seto, studying his flushed face, his nervous expression, and his beautiful blue eyes as they watered. He looked to be in so much pain, physically and emotionally. Yami stood speechless and motionless, thoughts racing through his head. He asked himself why he did this, why he hurt Seto, and how he could be such a horrible lover. It wasn't until he felt a sharp and hot pain in his cheek that sent him tumbling to the floor did he snap out of his trance.

"What's wrong with you, Yami?!" He heard Anzu shout. He glanced up at the fuming girl towering over him, and watched as Mai stepped forward and grabbed Anzu by the front of her shirt, lifting her into the air.

"You have no business hitting him, you brat!" Mai yelled into her face, and Anzu gulped and whimpered.

"Mai, put her down! Please!" Yuugi cried helplessly, running to the two girls. Mai tightened her grip before letting go of Anzu, whom fell to the ground in a heap.

"Anzu!" Yuugi said worriedly, sitting next to her and examining her before pulling her to her feet.

"I'm okay." Anzu said, shooting Mai a glare whom ignored it. The three turned their attention to the floor as Yami emitted a groan and stood. A whimper escaped the boy on the bed, and Yami gasped and whipped his head to the side to look at him. Seto was safely secure in Mokuba's arms, sobbing silently. Yami quickly rushed to the side of the bed and took Seto's hand.

"Seto?" He said softly. Seto removed his head from Mokuba's shoulder to look into Yami's eyes. Yami looked back, tearing himself up inside at the pain and fright he saw in those eyes.

"What is it, Yami?" Seto asked shakily. Yami stayed silent, stroking his hand, and then glanced at Anzu, Mai, and Yuugi who stood stiff at the foot of the bed. Yami motioned with his head toward the doorway, telling them to leave. The three of them nodded and hurried out, Yuugi motioning with his hand for Mokuba to follow. Mokuba quickly glanced at Seto before following them out. As soon as the door shut, Yami turned his attention back to Seto.

"Seto..." Yami began, and looked into Seto's eyes again. Seto bit his lower lip, expecting to be yelled at for what he had done to himself.

"I'm sorry I did this to you." Yami's eyes welled with tears. Seto widened his eyes and weakly shook his head.

"No, Yami... This isn't your fault." He choked out.

"You would not have done this if I wouldn't have been ignoring you."

"Yami, it's all right." Seto managed a smile. He brought his hand up to hold Yami's cheek.

"Seto, you know I want nothing more than for you to be happy. I love you more than anything and anyone." Seto's smile widened.

"Thank you, Yami..." Seto began to drift off. Yami lovingly stroked his face and hair, and Seto rested into the pillow and began to drift off into sleep. Yami continued as Seto began to lightly snore. He was lost in thoughts. He was lying to Seto - Doing things he shouldn't be behind his back. Gaining so much trust from him, and then crushing it. He was hurting Seto more and more everyday. But he just couldn't give up what he was doing.

Yami stood, covering his sweet angel up before heading for the doorway.


[This takes place after they left the room, so no one's confused.]

Yuugi quietly shut the door and leaned against the wall. He was feeling so many different ways. Happiness that Yami had come to see Seto and was now talking to him, worry for Seto's health and what Yami was up to, anger that Yami had done this and that Mai and Anzu had to fight at such an inconvient time, and probably much more. Mai and Anzu is probably what upset him the most, though. There was already enough to worry about, and yet the two girls continued to bicker at each other.

"So, what have you been up to?" Anzu spat at Mai. And so it began. Yuugi sighed and sunk down on the wall.

"None of your business!" Mai spat back, but it didn't phase Anzu.

"I want to know what you're doing with Yami! Are you seeing him secretly?! Huh?! Are you that selfish?!" She shouted. That had done it. She had pushed the right button, but it was a big mistake. Mai grabbed Anzu much more forcefully and slammed her hard into the wall.

"You have no right to call me selfish, you insignificant little bitch! You don't even know if I've been hanging out with Yami or not!"

"Knock it off!" All three turned their attention to the black haired child standing in the middle of the hallway, sobbing. He had been so quiet, huddled into a ball, but the girls' violence had finally gotten to him.

"This is a hospital! Don't you care?! I think you both are selfish!" The three teens stared in shock. Mokuba was very upset, and they obviously weren't helping. Mai's face softened, and she gently released Anzu.

"Mokuba's right." Mai said guiltily. "There's too much going on. Our fighting isn't helping." Anzu nodded.

"Sorry, Mokuba." She said. A crowd of nurses began to crowd around the four. All of them were clearly angry, some looking like they were about to kill someone.

"I'm afraid we're going to have to ask the four of you to leave. You've been causing a lot of noise, and it's disturbing the other patients." One said calmly.

"We're sorry..." The four said in unison.

"You should be! This is a hospital! Show some decency!" Another yelled. At this moment Yami emerged from Seto's hospital room.

"We're about to leave." Yuugi said. The crowd began to break up, some mumbling about how irritating children were.

"Let's go, Mai." Yami said, and began walking. Anzu and Yuugi stood in shock as Mokuba ventured back into Seto's room.

"Where are you going?" Anzu asked, but Yuugi shushed her with a wave of his hand. He didn't want anymore fights. Yami turned to look at them.

"Is Seto all right?" Yuugi asked. That was all he really cared about. Yami smiled and nodded before continuing walking, Mai by his side. Yuugi took Anzu's hand and the two of them returned to Seto's room.


Mai and Yami emerged from the hospital and returned to Mai's car. When they were buckled in and on the rode, Mai was first to speak.

"Yami, did you want to go to the place where we were headed earlier?" She asked hopefully. Yami took a moment to think.

"Sure." He replied, though he had his doubts about where they were headed.

"Great!" She exclaimed, speeding up. "You're really going to like it! Promise!" Yami mentally sighed. What was he doing?


They arrived to their destination, which appeared to be some sort of office building. Yami stared up at it in confusion.

"This just looks like an office building."

"Wait and see!" She said happily, and took his hand, dragging him inside. Once inside they took an elevator to the top floor, which appeared to be somewhat secretive. It didn't look like many came here. The hallway was dark, and their were only a few rooms. Mai led Yami down to the last room, and walked right inside. The inside was somewhat small, with a couple chairs and a couch set up around a table, along with a desk. On the desk sat a large book. The door to another room opened, and a man emerged, smiling.

"Why, hello!" He said. "Welcome back, Mai! Who's this here?"

"This is my friend, Yami." She replied.

"Are you interested in joining us, Yami?" He asked, picking up the large book.

"I'm not sure what you mean..." He began as the man walked over and flipped open the book. Yami gazed in awe at what he saw.

"As you can see... We have many, and are actually very popular. If you are interested, I guarantee you'll get what you want..." He smiled.

Yami nodded in agreement. This was going to be easy. Very easy.
