Yugi sat nervously on the rather comfy stool in the centre of the stage. Everything was in total darkness; Yugi could just make out the glow of the audience's eyes. He could hear random cheers issuing from the crowd, which just increased his nervousness. He was quietly awaiting the signal that he should start playing his guitar.

He could faintly sense his yami standing somewhere nearby. It comforted him somewhat, knowing that he was there. He also glimpsed the glittery dress Tèa was wearing for her dance routine. Everything was in order.

:'Start.': Yugi nearly jumped at the sudden sound of his darkness's voice in his head. Quickly calming himself, he gently plucked at the guitar strings.

As the faint sounds of the guitar made itself known, the spotlight faded on and landed straight on Yugi. Blue circular lights were moving gently in the background, offering the onlookers a sense of ease. Tèa slowly rose gracefully and gently moved her hands up above her head, before going up onto tiptoe and balancing elegantly, her arms above her in an over shape.

After a moment of playing, Yugi began to sing:

((Summer has come and passed...))
((The innocent can never la-ast.))
((Wake me up…when September ends.))

Serenity then proceeded to play a light tune on her keyboard, another golden light fading on and landing on her. Ryou gently tapped a triangle to give off a faint ding! Sound, who was standing off stage. Yugi continued to play and sing:

((Like my fathers come to pass...))
((Seven years has gone so fa-ast.))
((Wake me up…when September ends.))

((Here comes the rain again…))
((Falling from the stars.))
((Drenched in my pain again…))
((Becoming who we are.))

((As my memory rests...))
((But never forgets what I lo-ost.))
((Wake me up…when September ends.))

Serenity paused in her keyboard, allowing the guitar solo to play out. Tèa twirled and skipped beautifully around the stage, her hair and dress flowing behind her. Another gold light faded on and landed on Bakura, who began to beat on his drum. A second later, another beam of light landed on Joey, who began to play his guitar. Serenity started playing again too, and Yugi's voice sounded across the stage. Yugi felt the faint movements of Yami somewhere in the dark, knowing it was almost time for him to start singing too.

((Summer has come and passed...))
((The innocent can never last.))
((:Wake me up…when September ends.:))

Yami had strummed loudly on his electric guitar, his voice sounding around the stage. The song was no longer a soft, soothing melody; more like a rock song. Yami stopped playing.

((Ring out the bells again...))
((Like we did when Spring bega-an.))

Yami began strumming again.

((:Wake me up…when September ends.:))

((:Here comes the rain again…:))
((:Falling from the stars.:))
((:Drenched in my pain again..:))
((:Becoming who we are.:))

Yami stopped strumming.

((As my memory rests…))
:But never forgets what I lo-ost.:
((:Wake me up…when September ends.:))

Tèa twirled around the stage, dress still flowing about gracefully. Yami continued to watch her (Also still playing), a smile on his face. Joey began to play more loudly, causing quite a number of students in the crowd to scream. Joey finished his bit and then everything went quieter, Yugi's guitar and the random ding from Ryou's triangle still playing.

((Summer has come and passed...))
:The innocent can never la-ast.:
((:Wake me up…when September ends.:))

((Like my father's come to pass...))
:Twenty years has gone so fa-ast.:
((:Wake me up…when September ends.:))

((:Wake me up…when September ends…:))
((Wake me up...))
:...When September e-ends.:

Glittering confetti was now falling down from above them. Yami, Yugi and Joey stopped strumming, allowing Serenity to keep playing. Yami cast a glance at the now-silent Bakura, who gave him a reassuring nod. Yami slung the guitar off his shoulders and tilted the microphone that was attached to his jacket to make sure it was out of the way. Yami silently asked Yugi to hold on to his guitar as he approached Tèa, who has her arms in an oval shape above her head.

Bakura quickly and quietly darted off the stage, intending to head up to where Tristan was working. Yami came up behind Tèa quietly and gently touched her on the shoulder. She spun around, eyes wide.

Yami gazed at her eyes for one moment, then leaned forward pressed his lips against hers.

The crowd cheered and 'ooooooohed' but Yami couldn't really care less. He was enjoying the sensation on his lips andthe swooping sensation in hisstomach. He smiled inwardly when he felt Tèa kissing back with love and eagerness.

Several girls were crying; Yugi, Joey and Ryou were calling out to them, but they couldn't make out the words.

The only thing yami noticed was the way Bakura lowered the curtains behind them, blocking the view from anyone behind them. Then lowering a curtain in front of them to block all onlookers out all together.

He'd have to make a note to thank Bakura later; right now, he might as well enjoy himself by deepening their kiss.


"Stay inside! Leave them be!" Bakura growled quietly, attempting to seal the door to another cabin but the random pushes from the girls inside kept knocking off his concentration. Despite himself, he wanted to give some private time to Yami and Tèa, and they just happened to be spending it in the outdoors around a burning campfire. Bakura had gone around to most of the cabins and sealed them shut with Shadow Magic, but these females were being particularly stubborn.

"I wanna see Yamiiiiii!" One of the girls piercing voice screamed.

"Shut up, you stupid woman! Leave him and his girlfriend alone! Stop-trying-to-get-out!"

"Yami!" Another few girls cried.

"Damn you!" Bakura shoved the door hard one last time, causing all the girls to tumble back and land hard on the wooden floor. Bakura seized his chance and sealed the door shut, blocking out the sounds coming from inside. The door no longer was close to being broken off its hinges, and the windows were slowly being blocked out by the purple Shadow Magic.

Bakura saw the girls peering out of one of the windows, their eyes wet with tears and glaring at him. Smirking, Bakura stuck his tongue out as the Shadow Magic completely covered the window and blocked the girls from view.

'The dark deed has been dealt with,' Bakura thought grimly before heading back to his cabin. He passed the campfire Yami and Tèa were seated around, smirking at what was happening before entering the cabin and making sure none of their friends was peeping through the window to watch.

Yami grinned. "Come on! Tell me!"

"No!" Tèa giggled, before receiving a furious assault of tickles to her stomach. "Stop-it-!"

"Not until you tell me," Yami said playfully, tickling.

"Yami, I can barely breathe!"

Yami smiled in the same playful way before stopping his tickle attack. He then leaned down and kissed her on the neck.

"Y-Yami…"

"Mm?"

"Y-you…n-no fair…"

Yami trailed butterfly kisses down her neck, causing her to shiver pleasurably. "You…no, that's not…I'm not telling…"

"Tell me," Yami said, who had momentarily broken away from her neck. He then returned to kissing her on her neck.

"Y-Yami! Stop trying t-to…to…seduce m-me! Or-or whatever it is you're d-doing!" Tèa was now a brilliant shade of magenta.

Yami broke apart from her neck once more, offered her a teasing smile before moving his mouth down and sucking on her neck seductively. Tèa gasped.

"St-stop it! You…you sadistic little…"

Finally unable to control herself, Tèa pushed him off the log they were sitting on – causing his lips to break contact with her neck – and kissed him roughly. Quickly breaking away, Tèa glared at him. "If you must know, it was since you saved me at Burger World when I used to work there."

"Ah, I see. Well, I believe I started liking you when I first saved you too, but my feelings started becoming stronger since you fell asleep on my shoulder on the bus up to camp."

Tèa blushed. "That meant nothing at the time."

Yami blinked innocently. "Really? Well, it got you to the point of having a love bite on your beautiful neck."

Tèa gasped. "You gave me a hickey? Oh God…"

"What?"

"Oh, that's so going to give everyone the wrong idea tomorrow…"

Yami grinned. "If you're that ashamed of it, then you can wear a sweater over it or something."

"Did you forget? I forgot all my winter clothing when I was packing!"

"Really? Then I guess you'll have to wear my choker or jacket over it," Yami said with a wink. Tèa groaned.

"That's just going to give everyone the same wrong idea…"

"Dear, dear Tèa, I never knew you had such a dirty mind."

Tèa went an even deeper shade of red. "You're just messing with my head."

"Perhaps," Yami said, kissing her on the cheek. "But I enjoy the effects it has on you."

"Tease."

"Me?" Yami smirked. "Oh, I never realised…"

"Cut the sarcasm, Yami. You know very well what you're saying."

"Actually it's probably just the fact I feel extremely giddy right now."

"Your point?"

"Well, maybe it works like an alcoholic after they consume a large amount of it. Maybe tomorrow I'll wake up in an embarrassing situation without remembering why in the name of Ra I was there in the first place…"

"What kind of embarrassing situation do you mean?" Tèa asked suspiciously.

Yami grinned. "Always thinking of things related to sexual intercourse, hmm?"

"Yami!" Tèa looked extremely frustrated and embarrassed. "I was just asking a question!"

"It seemed like a not-so-innocent question to me."

"I didn't mean anything suss!"

"The entire world you live in seems to be pretty suss to me since the past hour when I first kissed you in front of everyone."

"Oh, just be quiet and let me give you a hickey." Tèa went an even deeper shade of red.

Yami raised his eyebrows. "What for? Some sort of payback?"

"In a way, yes."

"If you gave me a love bite right here and now, you'd just land yourself in a whole world of…trouble."

"Trouble? Why?"

"I would find it very seductive if you marked me, dear Tèa," Yami said, playing with her brown hair. "I might not be able to help myself…"

"I never knew you could act so…hormone driven."

Yami laughed. "Good use of words, there!"

"Be quiet."

"Why? I sense that Bakura went around and sealed all of the doors with Shadow Magic, so there's no need for us to be quiet…"

Tèa decided that the only way to keep her new boyfriend quiet was to just forcefully kiss him. So she did. A very deep kiss, in fact. When they broke apart, she giggled at the dazed look on Yami's face. "That look suits you, Yami."

"Thankyou. Will you excuse me for a moment? I want to give something to you." Yami quickly got to his feet, dusted the sand off his pants and jogged back to the cabin. Tèa sat back on the log around the fire, wondering what it is Yami was going to give to her.

A starlit sky was above her, as she sat near a campfire. She hugged herself tightly; it was freezing. Her hair blew gently in the breeze, as she closed her eyes tightly, trying to shut out the cold feeling numbing her body. She heard muffled footsteps in the sand.

She looked up…

Yami stood there with a sheet of paper in his hand and a puzzled look on his face. He moved forward and sat down on the log next to his girlfriend. "Are you alright? You look frozen."

Tèa just blinked. The scene before had been incredibly familiar to the dream about those golden, honey-hued amber eyes she was so in love with. All had been the same…except Yami had been there. In her dream, she had looked up and saw no one standing there, yet there were imprints in the sand. But now…

"Here – this is what I wanted to give you. It's a song I wrote a very long time ago."

Yami handed the paper over to Tèa, who looked at it for a second. She then unfolded it and began to read:

If I were to fall in love,
I don't know whom else I'd rather spend the rest of my days with.
The only person I can trust with my heart,
The only other person in the world…
The only other person would be you.

I'd want someone to trust.
Someone who'd care.
Someone who'd listen to all the thoughts on my mind.
Someone who'll be there for me.
Someone like you.

If I were to fall in love,
There's no one else who'd be there on my side.
There'll be no one who'd understand.
There'll be no one who'd ever take my hand…
And hold it close to their heart.
No one… No one but you.

I'd want someone to trust.
Someone who'd care.
Someone who'd listen to all the thoughts on my mind.
Someone who'll be there for me.
Someone like you.

Oh, if I could fall in love with someone
You'd be the only one…
I'd never find anyone just like you.

Tèa sniffled, warm tears sliding down her cheeks. "Yami, that's so sweet." She wrapped her arms around his neck and rested her head on his chest. "You go from sarcastic, playful type to a romantic, sweet type in a matter of seconds."

Yami smiled. "I was thinking of you when I wrote it." He kissed her on the tip of her nose lightly. Tèa sighed happily.

'No wonder I'm in love with him.' She noticed him glancing back at the cabin. "Something wrong, Yami?"

Yami turned back to face her, and Tèa gasped. His eyes were…different. They were no longer the fierce crimson. There was a golden, honey-hued amber colour there instead. Surprised, Tèa then noticed the glow of the fire was what caused his eyes to take on the gorgeous colour that she was staring at. It had been his eyes she'd been dreaming about the whole time…

"Um…Tèa?"

"Yes, Yami?"

"When I went into our cabin before, Joey wasn't there. Where do you think he went?"

Tèa blinked. "Actually, after the performance, I haven't seen Mai anywhere either."

Yami smirked. "Well, this is interesting."

She also smirked. "Very."

"Why don't we go find the two love birds?"

"Sounds good to me."

They rose from the log and walked hand-in-hand to go look for the two blondes.


"Joey, why did you bring me here?" Mai asked softly, gazing at the beautiful view. Joey had led her away from the concert and taken her to the distant and quiet look-out, which gave a brilliant view of the ocean. The moon shone brightly down on the water, giving a silvery reflection.

"Well…I jus' found dis place yesderday and wan'ed ta share id wid someone. And…I doughd I migh' bring you here."

"Thankyou, Joseph, I really love it."

"Me too."

They stood in a comfortable silence for a few minutes, just staring out at the water. Nothing but peaceful contentment filled their minds and hearts.

"Joey…"

"Yeh, Mai?"

"Can you hear that?" Mai asked, hearing what sounded like music.

So she said, "What's the problem baby?"
What's the problem I don't know?
Well maybe I'm in love (Love)

"Huh?" Joey said blankly, and Mai blushed, being able to hear exactly what the words were.

"Maybe some people stayed after the concert to keep playing. I mean, it sounds pretty distant."

"Yeh, fair enough."

They turned back to face the water, though not as comfortable and content as before.

Think about it every time
I think about it
Can't stop thinking 'bout it

'Mai's so beautiful,' Joey thought to himself, casting a side-glance at the female in question. 'Her eyes are so pretty. They're like…what are those things called again? Oh yeh…amethysts, only…a deeper colour, and they're prettier than amethysts.'

How much longer will it take to cure this?
Just to cure it cause I can't ignore it if it's love (Love)
Makes me wanna turn around and face me but I don't know nothing 'bout love…

'And I don't know anything about love, so it's too difficult to tell Mai that I like her in that sense,' Joey mused miserably, now staring at her openly.

Come on, come on - Turn a little faster
Come on, come on - The world will follow after
Come on, come on – 'Cause everybody's after love

'I have to admit, the people singing that song are really good,' Mai mused. 'I like it. But I have to admit, I prefer Joey to the song.' She blushed.

So I said, "I'm a snowball, running."
Running down into the spring that's coming all this love
Melting under blue skies
Belting out sunlight
Shimmering love

'I really don't know what it is, but for some reason, everything he does is just so…adorable. I don't know why.'

Well, baby I surrender
To the strawberry ice-cream
Never ever end of all this love
Well I didn't mean to do it
But there's no escaping your love

'Maybe if I just get it out there I'll feel better.' Joey thought to himself, scratching the back of his head confusedly.

'I wonder if he returns my feelings. I highly doubt it. I'm nothing flash,' Mai thought sadly.

"Hey, Mai…" Joey started off.

These lines of lightning
Mean we're never alone,
Never alone, no, no

"Yes, Joey?" Mai waited, holding in her breath.

"I…dink I have da hots for you," Joey said, grinning embarrassedly. "Sorry, I just thought I'd say that."

Mai blinked. "You do?" Her eyes softened as she moved over to him.

Come on, Come on - Move a little closer
Come on, Come on - I want to hear you whisper
Come on, Come on - Settle down inside my love

"Uh…yeh, I dink so. Ac'ually, I'm cerdain."

Come on, come on - Jump a little higher
Come on, come on - If you feel a little lighter
Come on, come on - We were once upon a time in love

We're accidentally in love

"Cool." Mai was getting closer.

"Uh…so, wha' do ya dink?"

We're accidentally in love…
We're accidentally in love…
We're accidentally in love…

We're accidentally in love…
We're accidentally in love…
We're accidentally in love…

As a response, Mai leaned down slightly and kissed him.

Accidentally

I'm in Love, I'm in Love,
I'm in Love, I'm in Love,
I'm in Love, I'm in Love

Accidentally

Wrapping his arms around her waist, Joey leaned in to the kiss. Mai encircled her arms around his neck, deepening the kiss.

I'm In Love, I'm in Love,
I'm in Love, I'm in Love,
I'm in Love, I'm in Love,

Accidentally

Come on, come on - Spin a little tighter
Come on, come on - And the world's a little brighter
Come on, come on - Just get yourself inside her

The moon's gleam shone on the couple, lighting them up. It was a very romantic sight, and one that Joey and Mai seemed to be enjoying.

Love…I'm in love.

Atop one of the cliffs, hiding in the safe cover of the trees and bushes were Yami, Tèa and Bakura. Tèa sighed.

"I always knew they'd go perfect together."

"I think that song we played helped out," Yami grinned, placing his guitar on the ground so he could comfortably embrace Tèa. "Thanks for helping with the song, Bakura."

Bakura shrugged. "Whatever."


An air of sadness and disappointment filled the entire camp the following morning. The seniors of Domino High were already packed and had just had breakfast. In about an hour's time, they'd be returning to Domino City.

Meanwhile…

"NO! LEAVE ME ALONE!" Yami shrieked, sprinting away from what appeared to be a stampede of fan girls.

"YAMIIIIIII! WE LOVE YOOOOOOOOOOOU!"

"DOWN! BACK OFF! SIT! LEAVE ME BE!" Yami cried, quickly noticing a tree. He ran faster, the cloud of dust that the girls were leaving not far behind. He tried to scramble up the tree, but one of the girls seized his shoulders, pulling. Another few girls grabbed his arms and legs and were trying to pry him off the tree.

"GAH! HELP ME! YUGI? JOEY? BAKURA? SOMEONE!"

"EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!" Yugi screamed, nearly getting trampled by the large group of fan girls surrounding him.

"He's so cute!"

"Yugi! Yugi! I need you to sign this sheet of paper so I can go brag to all my friends!"

"Ooh! Ooh! Sign my bra!"

"MY INNOCENCE!" Yugi cried desperately.

Obviously realizing that Yugi was in no condition to be able to help him, Yami tried calling out to the others. "JOEY? BAKURA?"

"BACK OFF YOU WELCHERS!" Bakura cried, who was sitting on a branch in a nearby tree. He was kicking at the many girls that were trying to climb up the tree. "GO AWAY!"

"JOEY?"

Yami noticed the blonde pressed up against the wall, Mai standing in front of him and glaring at the group of hopeful girls. Disappointed, half of them joined the group that was nearly successful in prying Yami off his tree.

'Argh, where's Tèa?'

"Alright you girls, break it up!" Tèa called, suddenly appearing. "He's taken! Go on! Get!"

The girls ignored her.

"I SAID GET!" She screamed, shoving at the girls in the front row. Yami fell from the tree and landed with a thud on the dry earth. He got to his feet and hid behind Tèa, clutching onto her shoulders like some sort of shield. Only his spiky hair was visible.

"Thankyou-thankyou-thankyou-thankyou-!" Yami continued muttering his appreciation to her while Tèa glared at the girls harshly.

"He's my boyfriend. Go and get your own! He's mine!" Tèa said angrily, before turning around and kissing him.

The girls sobbed their disappointment and walked away, casting longing glances at the leather clad guitarist.

Bakura was still kicking at the 'rabid beasts' below him, who had accomplished the task of seizing the said foot. "GET OFF ME!"

"Hullo!" Marik chirped. He muttered something to one of the girls, and then jammed a red bucket on her head. Cackling as the girl staggered away, he approached the tree Bakura was in and leaned against it. "Whatcha doin'?"

"Get these creatures away from me, fool!"

"I will…but only if you're willing to pay me some of your Hamtaro magazines!" He said brightly.

Bakura blinked. Then froth began to form at his mouth, spilling out and dribbled down his chin "Nooooooo! You'll never get any of my mangas! I'd rather a tiger shark come and eat you all aliiiiiiiiive!" He stopped frothing and took several deep breaths.

Marik blinked, and then blinked again. "Crazy! I was just joking! Alright ladies, back it up please!" He pulled a large broom out of no where and swept the girls back. Then threw the broom away and watched Bakura jump down from the tree.

"Did the Toon Alligator lend you some Toon Magic?" Bakura asked knowingly.

"Yup!"

"And why did you shove a red bucket on that woman's head?" Bakura asked, seeing the girl walking blindly into trees and bushes. He then noticed a few other students walking around with red buckets on their heads.

"I came up with a really good joke!" Marik said, grinning.

Bakura raised an eyebrow skeptically. "Really? Let's hear it."

"What's red and looks like a bucket? A red bucket!" And he shoved a red bucket on Bakura's head and ran off, cackling madly.

"MARIK! GET THIS THING OFF ME!" Bakura roared, but all it sounded like was a bunch of loud mumbling.

It took a huge effort, but Yami and Tèa had managed to shove all the girls off the horrified Yugi. Yugi was now clutching onto Yami like some sort of lifeline.

Marik skipped about the camp half an hour later, looking very pleased with himself. He had successfully jammed all thirty-six buckets onto student's heads. He walked out to near the water and did Yami's happy dance. When he moved his arm back, he hit something; something sharp.

Next thing he knew, an army of seagulls came charging at him from the sky, pecking at his head and tugging at his wild hair.

"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I KNEW THIS DAY WOULD COME!" He ran across the sand, screeching about 'death omens' and 'Ra's curse'.

Yami and Bakura sat on the sand, watching amusingly as the psychopath ran in circles with the seagulls pecking at his head.

"Glad I didn't miss this," Bakura said with a smirk.

Yami chuckled. "Yeh, same here."

Unknown to them, a group of fan girls were spying on them through bushes behind them.

Suddenly, Bakura's Millennium Ring lit up, pointing at something out to sea.

"What's it doing now?" Yami said, eying the item.

"It's pointing at that boat out there," Bakura said, indicating the tiny thing that was coming into shore. "Looks like two people are on there."

"They might have a Millennium Item," Yami mused aloud, getting to his feet. "Come on, Bakura."

They both headed over to the boat that had just reached the shore.


"Sister, is that really who I think it is?" Malik said, slapping his forehead when he saw his yami racing around in circles with birds attacking him.

"Yes, Malik. Let's hope he hasn't caused any havoc on the people around here," Ishizu said blankly. "Our job is to take your dark side back with us."

"I know. But…do we really have to? It's so much quieter without him…"

"Now, now, Malik, I understand your point, but we can't just leave him. He could do something reckless."

"He does reckless stuff all the time!"

"Exactly."

"Malik! Ishizu!" Yami cried, jogging over and waving to them. Malik and Ishizu blinked.

"Pharaoh? What are you doing here?" Ishizu asked in surprise.

"Please, call me 'Yami', Ishizu," Yami said curtly. "And our school is on a camping trip. What are you two doing here?"

"You come to pick up that idiot?" Bakura asked, gesturing to the said psychopath, who was screaming like a little girl.

"Yes -unfortunately." Malik sighed dramatically.

"Good luck, then." Bakura smirked.

"How did he get all the way over here anyway?" Yami asked curiously.

"I think he must of got out when we left the entrance of the Tomb Keeper's underground open one time," Malik said quickly. "And I've been using my Millennium Rod and the 'Light's Mind Link' to find him. And, well, here we are." Malik gestured to the area they were standing in.

"I think you should increase the medication he's on," Bakura said, nodding. "He needs it."

"He was never on medication!"

"Then you're as crazy as he is!"

The two argued at each other while Marik (Who noticed them there) sprinted away, the seagulls still chasing him.

"MARIK!" Ishizu cried.

Malik stopped arguing and ran after his psychopath darkness. "GET BACK HERE, MORON!"

"Ishizu! What are you doing here?" Yugi asked, who had come over with Joey, Tristan and Tèa. Yami walked up to Tèa and put his arms around her waist.

Ishizu blinked, looking at Yami who was resting his head on the brunette's shoulder, then explained to Yugi about how Marik had escaped and they had come to bring him back with them.

"Okay, then. Where's Malik?"

"Here he comes." Ishizu nodded over to where Malik was, who had shook off the seagulls and was dragging Marik over by the ear.

"Malik-light! I don't wanna go!" Marik screamed, kicking wildly. Malik scowled at him.

"Malik-light says it's time to leave."


Yami signed as he stood on the barge that was taking them back to the Domino High bus on the other side of the water. He was leaning against the side of the boat, watching as the island of Leimore was drifting away. He would really miss that place…

On the way back to Domino City, their ride consisted of 'ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall', 'We are Domino High School, Domino City' and Bakura was now keeping up the red bucket joke Marik had used.

He had his left arm draped over Tèa's shoulders, who had fallen asleep about fifteen minutes ago. He too was feeling very drowsy from their long vacation, so he rested his chin on her head and fell asleep.

He was shaken awake after what seemedseconds later by Yugi, who was claiming that they had reached Domino City. Sighing, Yami gently prodded Tèa awake and together they climbed out of the bus.

"I'll call you!" Tèa yelled out to Yami, after he had given her belongings to her. Nodding and giving a final wave, Yami left. Tèa went around the car park and – seeing her parents – ran up and hugged them both.

"Missed you mom, dad."

"We missed you two, pumpkin. Come on, let's head home." Mrs. Gardner led her daughter and husband to their silver beetle and they climbed in.

"Did you have a good time, darling?" Mr. Gardner asked, looking around to smile at Tèa. Tèa nodded brightly.

"Oh yes, I had a great time. And mum, dad…I have a boyfriend, now."

"What? Tèa, that's wonderful! Who's the lucky man?" Mrs. Gardner giggled.

Tèa blushed. "It's Yami, mom. You know…"

"Ah yes. He's a good-looker, that one," Mrs. Gardner said, still giggling. "I'm so happy for you, darling!"

'Everyone's happy for you!' Said the nagging voice in Tèa's head. 'And you finally found out the mystery of who those honey-hued amber eyes belong to.'

'Yeh. Funny to think that it was merely a trick of the campfire that made them look so beautiful.'

'Shame you'll never see them that colour again.'

'I don't need them. I have everything I've ever wanted.'

Besides…

Crimson had always been her favourite colour.

THE END.
