An Ocean's Secret

It was a lovely day, the kind of day where you just want to get all of your friends together and have a picnic on the beach. Yami, Yugi, Tea, Joey, Mai, Tristan, Serenity, and Duke all agreed to meet at the beach for their picnic. Yugi and Tea had been going out for a month or two, along with Joey and Mai, Tristan and Serenity, and Duke with his girlfriend Jenny. They all brought something to eat and were playing a game of volleyball. Yami decided not to play and ventured off on his own. He climbed up a trail to the ledge that looked over the ocean.

A few miles out into the water, Yami thought he saw something swimming. As he tried to get a better look, the edge broke beneath him and caused him to fall into the water. The waves were rough against the rocks where Yami had landed. Yugi and the others had seen Yami fall from a distance and ran to try and help him.

Yami tried to get to the surface, only to feel the water keep him down. Until he felt, two arms wrapped underneath his armpits, pulling him up towards the surface. As soon as they reached the surface, he coughed and breathed in as much air as he could. Yami turned, expecting to see Joey or Tristan, but instead found a beautiful girl holding him.

"Are you all right?" she asked him. Yami simply nodded in response. "Let's get you back to shore," the girl suggested and swam them both back to the beach. Yami walked to the sand once his legs were able. When he turned around, the girl that helped him was still in the water, but only her head was visible. The lower part of her black hair danced in the water, while her ocean-blue water eyes watched him in curiosity.

"Thank you," Yami said wiping his mouth.

"You're welcome. Are you sure you're all right? That was quite the fall you took over there," the girl smiled.

"Yes, I'll be all right. May I ask you your name?" Yami asked.

"I'm Rya. What's yours?" she said.

"I'm Yami," he replied. A whole group of voices could be heard coming their way, calling Yami's name. Yami looked back to where Rya was, to see her starting to retreat further into the water. "Wait, please don't go!" he called out, running back into the water. "Will I see you again?"

"Sure. Do you see those rocks over there?" Rya said pointing to a bunch of rocks in the middle of the water.

"Yes, what about them?" Yami asked.

"Do you think you could swim that far?" Yami simply nodded. "Okay then. Meet me at those rocks at two o'clock tomorrow afternoon, okay?" Rya asked.

"All right, I'll see you then," Yami replied. He turned to see Yugi and the others running up to him. Once he looked to back to the water, Rya was gone.

"Yami, are you okay?" Yugi yelled as he and the others ran up to him.

"Yes, I'm fine Yugi. Luckily someone was able to reach me in time," Yami stated.

"Who?" Joey asked.

"Rya," Yami replied.

"Rya? Who's Rya?" Tristan asked scratching his head.

"Well, she saved me but now she's gone," Yami explained. His expression seemed saddened as he looked out to the now empty water.

"Well, thank goodness you're still in one piece. So who's hungry?" Tea called out happily.

Everyone except Yami cried out "I am!" He was still busy looking out into the water. As soon as everyone else began walking back to their picnic, Yami turned and ran after them. Rya never left his mind, even as he slept he thought of her.
