Yu-Gi-Oh! Does Aladdin
Disclaimer: I don't own YGO or Aladdin
"Oh, I come from a land
Through which runs the Nile
Where the caravan camels roam.
Where they cut of your hand
If they don't like your style,
It's barbaric, but hey, it's home!
When the wind's from the east
And the sun's from the west
And the sand in the glass is right,
Come on down, stop on by,
Hop a dragon and fly
To another Egyptian Night!
Like Egyptian Days
More often than not
Are hotter than hot
In a lot of good ways!
Like Egypt after noon
A fool of his guard
Could fall and fall hard
Out there on the dunes!
"Ah, salaam and good evening to you, worthy friend. Please, please, come closer! Too close! A little too close!There! Welcome to Egypt…country of mystery…of enchantment! And the finest merchandise this side of the river Nile, come on down! Ah heh, heh, heh. Look at this! Yes! Hee heh! Combination hookah and coffeemaker, also makes Julian fries! Will not break! It will not…it broke. Oh, look at this! I have never seen one of these in tact before. This is the famous Dead Sea Tupperware. Listen-- pblt! Ah! Still good! Ah, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha…wait, don't go! I can see that you're only interested in the exceptionally rare! I think, then, you would be most rewarded to consider…this: do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what is outside…but what is inside that counts. This is no ordinary puzzle! It once changed the course of a young man's life. A young man who, like this puzzle, was more than what he seemed…a diamond in the rough!
"Perhaps you would like to hear the tale? It begins on a dark night…where a dark man waits…with a dark…purpose…"
Waiting on a hill of sand in the desert, under the starry sky, waited a man on a horse. The man was Odion, an illegitimate son of the Ishtar family of tomb-keepers. He felt deep resentment of his task to guard the pharaoh's tomb, and wanted to obtain the power of the pharaoh for himself. He had ordered his minion, Bakura, to use his Millennium Ring to seek out the location of the Millennium Puzzle. Bakura was just now meeting up with him.
"You are late," said Odion.
"A thousand apologies, O patient one,"said Bakura.
"You have it, then?"
"I had to slit a few throats, but I got it!"said Bakura, holding out the Millennium Ring. However, he wasn't going to just GIVE it to Odion. He wanted to trade it for Odion's Millennium Rod. Bakura wanted to own all seven Millennium Items, so he wasn't going to just hand one over without getting something in return. "Ah-ah-ah…the treasure…?"
Suddenly, Odion's sidekick, Raphael, swiped the Millennium Ring from Bakura's hand. "HA!"
"Ah!" cried Bakura.
"Trust me, my British friend," said Odion, watching as the pointers on the Millennium Ring began to rise up and point in a certain direction. "You'll get what's coming to you."
"What's coming to you, yep!" Raphael repeated. Suddenly, the Millennium Ring shot out of Odion's hand and flew off into the distance.
"QUICKLY! FOLLOW THE TRAIL!" yelled Odion. And his horse took off. "FASTER!" Soon, the ground rumbled as something huge rose out of the sand. It was the Guardian Sphinx! "At last…after all my years of searching…the Guardian Sphinx!"
"Guardian Sphinx," Raphael repeated.
"By Ra…"breathed Bakura.
"Now, bring me the puzzle. The rest of the treasure is yours but the puzzle is mine!" Odion ordered.
"The puzzle this, the puzzle that, jeez, where'd you dig this bozo up?" muttered Raphael.
Just as Bakura was about to enter the Guardian Sphinx, it awakened, and roared.
"Who disturbs my slumber?" it demanded.
"It is I…Bakura…a thief and a stealer of souls," Bakura said, bowing to it.
"Know this: only one may enter here. One whose worth lies far within. The diamond in the rough!"
"What are you waiting for?" asked Odion. "Go on!"
Bakura took a deep breath and slowly set one foot inside the Guardian Sphinx. Nothing happened. He breathed a sigh of relief. Suddenly, the Guardian Sphinx roared again, and devoured Bakura.
"AAAGGGGHHHHH!" he screamed.
"NO!" yelled Odion.
"Seek thee out," said the Guardian Sphinx as it sank back underneath the desert sands. "The diamond in the rough."
After pulling himself out of the sand and bopping his head until sand fell out of his ears, Raphael coughed and said "I can't believe it! I just don't believe it! We're never going to get a hold of that stupid puzzle! Just forget it! Look at this…look, I'm so ticked off that I'm balding!" he added, pulling his hair out of his scalp.
"Patience, Raphael, patience. Bakura was obviously less than worthy," said Odion.
"Oh, yeah, THERE'S a big surprise!" yelled Raphael, sarcastically. "That's an incredible-- I think I'm going to have a heart attack and DIE from that surprise! WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?! We've got a big problem here, a big--" But he was cut off as Odion clamped a hand over Raphael's mouth.
"Yes. Only one may enter. I must find this one, this…diamond in the rough."
