Nothin but a Mutt 2

Chap 14 Finding My Way Back part (4)

Yugi led his friends to the animal hospital. He had a feeling something was going to happen there that was out of the ordinary and Yami had that feeling too.

"Yugi are you sure you don't want to go to the arcade?" Tristan asked.

"Yes I and I want you all to see Joey,"

"Joey isn't going to be at the animal hospital because he doesn't know about Little Seto," Tristan said.

"Joey will be there just wait and see," Yugi said a smile visible on his face.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Joey stood in front of his conscious so he wouldn't get inside the house.

"Out of my way,"

"I wont let you go," Joey yelled.

"I said I am going to the real world and no one is going to stop me!" he hollered.

Standing there Joey wondered how he would get inside without his conscious following. He decided to stand there and block him then think of a way to get inside later.

"You think you can stop me? Wimpy you," he laughed taking hold of the door handle.

"Not alone,"

"What?"

Mokuba stood next to Joey blocking the door to.

"Mokuba,"

"I wont let you do this alone puppy," Mokuba said taking a hold of Joey's hand.

"You can't beat him by yourself," Yugi said taking a hold of Joey's hand.

"Thanks guys," Joey said.

When they got to the animal hospital they ran to the room that was holding Little Seto.

"I don't see Joey," Tristan said.

"Yeah all I see is that dog," Bakura said.

"He is that dog," Yugi said.

"Not again," Tristan said putting his hand over his face as if he was disappointed.

"He is,"

"Joey isn't Little Seto," Mokuba said waking up.

"See Yugi listen to Mokuba," Tirstan said.

"Now can we go to the arcade? I am determined to beat the Pharaoh at a game," Marik said.

"You couldn't beat me with your eyes blindfolded," Yami said.

"We aren't going anywhere," Yugi said, "Joey will be here."

"Whatever you say Yugi whatever you say," Tristan said.

----------------------------------

Joey looked around him and saw all of his friends standing with him to stop his conscious.

"Now you can't get in," Joey said.

"Joey I am surprised," he laughed, "that you didn't remember I control your mind and that I can make each one of your little mind friends disappear or better die."

"You wouldn't,"

"Yes actually I would," he said.

Suddenly Mokuba began to cough up a huge amount of blood.

"Puppy," Mokuba said as he was about to fall he gripped on to Joey's arm.

"Mokuba,"

"Puppy,"

"Stop it!" Joey shouted at his conscious.

"I am sorry no can do unless you step away from the door,"

"Katrina what should I do?"

"I don't know Joey listen to your heart,"

Yugi held on to his neck as he choked right in front of Joey's eyes.

"Please stop it!" Joey pleaded.

"Not until you move,"

"Puppy," Mokuba whispered, "Don't move."

"I must Mokuba I won't let you die,"

"Yes move and let me through,"

"No!" Yugi coughed.

"Mokuba, what is going on here?" Kaiba yelled running over to his brother.

"No time to explain call the hospital so they can help everyone," Joey said.

"Hello Domino Hospital we-," before Kaiba finished he collapsed hand over his heart.

Joey picked up Kiaba's phone but it wasn't working.

"All of your friends will die in exactly ten minutes,"

"If I move you will stop this madness?"

"Yes as simple as that,"

"O.k."

#########################################################################

"Yugi where is Joey? Huh?" Tristan asked.

"He will be here Tristan,"

"You said that five minutes ago," Ryou said.

"I may have but that is because it is true,"

"Yugi is right the puppy is Joey Wheeler," Kaiba said.

"Kiaba you believe that too?" Tristan asked.

"Yes I saw him change back into a boy with my own eyes since then I have been watching him,"

"Kaiba you're crazy," Marik laughed.

" I am not crazy. No one calls Kaiba crazy and lives," Kaiba said glaring at Marik.

" Well I guess I will be the first one,"

"Calm down everyone we are all friends here," Tea said.

"This would have never happen if you didn't take Little Seto to that obedience school,"

"Are you saying that I am the reason why that stupid dog is in a coma?"

"I didn't say it you did," Mokuba grinned.

The room was filled with bright light as a lady in a blue dress came into the room.

"Joey is in a lot of trouble," she said.

"Katrina is he-?"

"He is having trouble in his mind,"

"Why?"

"His conscious is-,"

"Hold on your Katrina?" Tristan asked.

"Yes,"

"Where is cupid?"

"Right behind you yo!"

"O.k."

"Everyone help Joey believe," she said.

"Help Joey believe?" they asked.

"Yes please or he will be stuck in his mind forever,"

----------------------------------------------------------------

Joey moved out of the way for his conscious.

"Now we had a deal fix my friends,"

"Wow that deal – I changed my mind,"

"What?"

"Yes I decided they should die,"

"No!"

Joey was furious he tackled the conscious to the ground.

"What no one can touch me,"

"I guess I am the first person who did,"

"Get off me!"

"Help my friends or else," Joey warned.

"O.k. just chill,"

"Puppy,"

"Mokuba," Joey said running over to him.

"Puppy," Mokuba coughed petting Joey's head.

"You have to help them," Joey pleaded.

"No I don't sucker," he said running over to the door.

Joey ran over and caught his conscious arm gripping onto it tightly.

"Please,"

"No,"

"You have to. I promise I will listen to you,"

"Promise?"

"Promise,"

"Well o.k."

Everyone that was dying was well again. Joey was so thrilled.

"Joey you saved us all," Yugi said, "thank you."

"Puppy you're a hero," Mokuba said giving Joey a hug.

"You're welcome everyone but I have to go back home,"

"Can't you stay?" Tea asked.

"Dude you have to stay," Tristan said.

"You are our best friend Joey,"

"You are all my best friends too,"

Joey looked to the house and still couldn't see it but hen he looked a little bit harder. The house came into full view. Putting his hand on the knob he felt someone holding onto him.

"Puppy please don't go," Mokuba cried.

"I am only going to tell you once I am not a-,"

Joey saw a tear go down Mokuba's face then he felt sorry. Joey sat down on the floor.

"Mokuba I have to go but just remember I will always be with you in there," Joey said pointing to Mokuba's heart.

"I will miss you puppy," Mokuba cried.

Joey either still had dog thoughts or he was felling sorry for Mokuba so he licked his face.

"Good –bye puppy," Mokuba said petting Joey's head.

Joey got up and went to the door. He looked back to see all his friends that helped him get through.

"Hey Mutt!"

"What?"

"Thanks,"

Joey opened the door.

###################################################

"Mokuba he isn't going to wake up," Kaiba said for the second time.

"He is big brother he is," Mokuba said.

"Where is Joey?" Tristan asked.

"Don't worry Joey is coming home," Katrina said.

"Big brother I miss Little Seto," Mokuba cried.

"We better go home Mokuba," Kaiba said looking at the time.

"No big brother I-," Mokuba started crying louder hugging Little Seto close.

"Poor Mokuba,"

"Poor Joey,"

"Stop Shedding your tears little boy your puppy is o.k. So is Joey," she said smiling.

The lights went off in the room it was so dark but the little puppy was glowing making the whole room light up. Mokuba looked in amazement at his glowing puppy.

"What is going on?" Yugi asked.

"Hey where did the lights go?" Bakura asked.

"I hope the tooth fairy doesn't come," Tea said.

"That is only in a -,"

The puppy began to change into a boy.

"Little Seto?" Mokuba said wiping his eyes.

"Joey the spell has been lifted you are a dog no longer you have for filled the deed," she said.

The lights went back on but the boy was still glowing. They didn't know who the boy was.

"Hey wait a minute that is Joey," Tristan said.

"Yes it is," Yugi cheered.

"Joey was a dog the whole time," Katrina said.

Joey opened his eyes to see his friends staring at him. He looked at his fingers and was happy he was a boy again. He sat up in the animal bed.

"Hey guys,"

The door was thrown opening showing a sad Serenity but when she saw Joey she cried out with joy.

"Joey?"

"Hey Serenity,"

"Where have you been?"

"You wouldn't believe me if I told you,"

==================================================

Aftermath

Joey walked out of Domino High carrying stacks of papers. He couldn't believe he had this much homework to make up.

"Hey Joey want to go to the arcade?" Yugi asked.

"Can't I promised Mokuba I would play with him,"

"Why?" Tristan asked.

"Well he did lose the greatest pet in the world so I said even if I am not a puppy anymore we can still be friends,"

"Joey how does it feel to not be eating dog food?" Duke asked.

"Good but dog food isn't that bad," Joey said.

"Meet us at Yugi's tonight," Tea said.

"Don't be late," Yami, said.

"I wont,"

Joey turned the corner on his way to Kaiba's mansion. He was happy he was a boy again because being a dog was a real pain but not as bad with Mokuba around it was just Kaiba that was the problem.

"Cp hurry up,"

"Coming gees,"

"Katrina," Joey said, "nah."

As Joey walked on by the two teenagers then began to talk among themselves.

"Joey is a good kid," Cp said.

"He is isn't he?" Katrina said, "practiced your aim for next year?"

"Yep,"

"Cp,"

"I promise,"

Katrina and Cp both left Domino city.

Joey sat in Kiaba's house playing video games with Mokuba.

"Joey,"

"Yes Mokuba,"

"Even though you aren't my puppy anymore you are still the greatest and always will be," Mokuba said hugging Joey.

"Thank you," Joey replied.

"Thanks for being a great puppy Joey,"

"You're welcome," Joey said.

"Now I am going to beat you this time,"

"No Mokuba I am going to beat you,"

That's the end. Wasn't it a great ending?

Joey: Yes I am not a dog anymore.

Kaiba: Then why do you have a tail?

Joey: Where?

Kaiba: Haha.

Joey: Kaiba.
