-1I'm bored. So I decided to make a long chapter for once! Yay, I'm not going to half-ass it for once!

AKA it's about 500 words more than usual. Heheh... (sweat drop)

oOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoO scene change.

6 p.m., second day at the mansion.


1. Clumsy

2. Ungraceful

3. Difficult to explain : embarrassing

4. Difficult to deal with

'Well, it sure as hell isn't the first two' ,Kaiba thought to himself as he walked out the door. For there, right down the hall from him, Jonouchi stood. The man Kaiba had just seen completely nude running down the hall. And the very person who also saw Kaiba completely nude running down the hall.

They both just stood there for a few minutes, looking at each other in silence. Jonouchi could barely stand it, for he wasn't one for quiet situations. He had never gone to church for that very reason. 'OMG DO SOMETHING, I CAN'T TAKE THIS! Just say something, anything! Come on, Jonouchi, you can think of something! Kaiba sure as hell isn't going to make the first move!'

"Um… so… nice tattoo, by the way. Was that a blue eyes? It was sorta low on your back though, kinda on your ass." 'OH GOD WHY DID I JUST SAY THAT? THINK BEFORE YOU TALK JONOUCHI!'

"… Why were you looking at my ass, mutt?"

"Umumum, NO REASON!"

'Oh no. not more silence. ICAN'TTAKETHISANYMORE!' ,Jonouchi took off running down the hall, past Kaiba.


Before Kaiba could even reply, Jonouchi was gone, flying down the stairs like a little kid running from a flu shot. 'That was weird. It does seem to support my theory, though. Hmmmm…' Kaiba headed downstairs, pondering that little question in his head, 'Is Jonouchi gay? Well, I'll just have to find out…' Then the memory of the past few minutes popped into his head. 'First I kill the Yamis and Egyptian, then I start my experiment, mwahahaha...' rubbing his hands together in glee at the different forms of pain he would inflict upon them, he headed for the kitchen. After all, if Malik and Marik were to hide anywhere, more than likely it would be near their beloved booze...

OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOo oOoOoOoOoOoOoO

-sob- "I'm scared, Malik!"

"Quiet! They'll hear us! I'd rather not have my face mutilated, okay Marik?"

-sob- -sniffle- -snort-

Malik and Marik had chosen to hide in the place they felt safest: their (now empty) beer kegs. Unfortunately for Malik, Kaiba had already heard them and knew where they were hiding. For he had walked into the kitchen to find two kegs sitting in the middle of the floor, one of which kept sobbing every now and then. He stood there for a bit, trying to think of a way to punish them. It wasn't long before he remembered that the back yard was nothing but a steep hill, ending in a forest full of thorn bushes. 'Heheh... this is going to be fun.'

Kaiba spent the next few minutes dragging the kegs out the back door with a sadistic grin on his face. Malik and Marik kept silent except for a few 'eeps' muttered here and there. With one last push, he managed to get both kegs situated at the top of the hill. With one last smile, he gave the kegs the final kick needed to get them flying down the hill at top speed. A muffled high pitched scream could be heard from one of the kegs.


Seto ran back inside, so happy at the Egyptian's demise he was almost skipping. 'Time for the next victim... Mwahahaha!'


Of course, Jonouchi was also on the prowl for a victim. Unfortunately for Bakura, he sucks at hiding. But Bakura's a thief, right? He should be good at hiding. Well, back in Egypt he simply used his ka, Diabound, to make himself invisible. Not to mention, most of the people in the pharaoh's palace were inbred hicks in order to 'preserve the bloodline', so it wasn't that hard to sneak past them anyway. Here in modern times, Bakura was fucked when it came to hiding. He had never even played a game of hide and seek.

And that's how Jonouchi found him. He was 'hiding' (if you could call it that) in the hallway, holding a potted plant in front of his face.

"Dude, Bakura, I can see you."

"No you can't. I can't see you, so you can't see me!"

"You're hiding behind a fucking houseplant, Bakura."

"... Shit. Um… Um… plan B! ESCAPE ROUTE!"

Bakura threw his potted plant at Jonouchi and took a running jump towards the near-by window. Glass flew everywhere, and he was gone. The only trace left of him was a moaning voice from the window.

"Roses… why are their rose bushes outside the window? …I HAVE THORNS IN MY ASS!"


Jonouchi decided he was just going to go look for Yami now.

OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOo oOoOoOoOoOoOoO

At the same time, Kaiba was walking back to the house, only to see Bakura come flying out of a first-story window. Just for good measure, Kaiba ran up and kicked him. He left Bakura sobbing in the bushes and went back inside. 'Three down, one to go!'

OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOo oOoOoOoOoOoOoO

Jonouchi didn't have to look very hard for Yami. The next room he entered, there he was, hiding behind Yugi and Mokuba.

"You are SO dead Yami."

"I'm not Yami, he is!"

"Dude, I'm not mistaking Yugi for you, you're like a foot taller, Yami."


Yugi ran out of the room sobbing. Mokuba just stood there, looking back and forth between Yami and Jonouchi. With one last look at Yami, he started to walk out of the room.

"Dude, you're on your own, I'm not getting involved in this."

"Mokuba! You can't leave me here! I'm, I'm… I'M YOUR FATHER!"

"Alright, fine. You're Gozuburo. I hate you and you deserve to die. Have a nice life."

With that, Mokuba left the room.

With no options left, Yami started praying to Ra. A second later, a lightning bolt hit outside the window.

"Eheh… Why does everyone hate me?" -sob-

Jonouchi moved in for the kill. Yami's eyes grew wide in horror...


Kaiba was walking down a hallway only to see Yugi run out of a room sobbing. Soon after, Mokuba walked out. Kaiba ran up to him.

"Hey Mokuba, what's going on in there?"

"Oh, Jonouchi is about to kill Yami, that's all."

"Damn, he beat me to it?"

At that moment, a high pitched scream echoed from the room Mokuba had just exited from.


Kaiba and Mokuba stared at the door in wonder.

"Well, I think he's doing a better job than I would have. Come on Mokuba, lets watch Malik and Marik try to crawl out of the patch of thorns in the back..."

oOoO later that night OoOo

Everyone was gathered in the living room. Kaiba, Mokuba, and Jonouchi were watching TV. Bakura was on the floor and Ryou was on top of him, pulling thorns out of his butt, Yami was on his knees, begging Yugi to forgive him, and Malik and Marik were on the floor next to Bakura, trying to pull their own thorns out.

"Wow, this day has been amazing!"

"... Running around naked was amazing to you, Jonouchi?"

"THAT'S NOT WHAT I MEANT! But it was kinda fun... maybe I'll do it more often..."

"Not around me, mutt."

"Wasn't planning on it, rich boy. Just don't do it around me, I'd rather not see your blue eyes again, and I ain't talking about the one on your ass either."

"First, you were staring at my ass. Now it's my... ahem... 'dragon'. I'll ask you to stop molesting me with your eyes, Jonouchi."

"But I... that wasn't... I didn't mean... SHUT UP KAIBA!"


Of course, Mokuba was watching this whole exchange. Not only did he notice that Jonouchi was looking a little to closely at Seto's 'assets', but it almost seemed that Kaiba was flirting back.


"Quiet, Mokuba. I'm trying to watch TV."

"Sorry nii-sama."

"Ahh, who am I kidding, I'm not watching TV. I'm watching Bakura get thorns pulled out of his ass."

"Ah, shove it Kaiba, OW! Ryou, careful, don't damage the merchandise!"

"Sorry, Bakura! It was a big thorn..."

"Bakura doesn't have a big thorn ahaha!"

"Shut up Marik!"

"Eh, that's it, I'm going to bed, I've lost interest in this."

"Goodnight, nii-sama!"

"Yeah, 'night asshole! OW!"

Kaiba stepped on Bakura on his way out.

" 'Night to you too, Bakura. Heheh..."

Truth is, Kaiba wasn't going to bed out of boredom. He needed time to figure out the little experiment he was going to play on Jonouchi. See, he was starting to get bored staying at this house, and he needed something to keep his attention. What better to do than to fuck with Jonouchi's head a bit? After his peculiar behavior earlier today, he thought It'd be quite fun... 'I'll set my plan into motion tonight. Mwahaha...' With a grin, he headed into his bedroom, his head filled with all the ideas he was going to use on Jonouchi...
