Chapter 6:The Boat ride, Appears the Eagle demon.

A man stood in Kelly's living room looking down at the empty package. The thunder and rain outside was harsh making the house appear darker than it normally really was. The man hadn't even bothered to turn on the lights the T.V. was still on but it was all static only revealing that the man was there. With a sigh the man finally spoke.

"I knew this was going to happen at some point but I wasn't excepting it so soon… Honey it appears one of the lords of Demon World has kidnapped our daughter. Her prophecy, no destiny is being to take hold, and has spirited her away. I had hoped to make up for lost time, but now there is nothing we can do for out little girl… Let's pray that your orb, and the cards I've given her can prevent her form falling into the wrong hands," muttered the man.

Kelly looked through her deck as she rode in the limo. She had a really good deck, but just because you had a good deck doesn't mean you know how to use it.

"Those last packs Dad go me for my birthday had some really good cards that I can use," I mumbled to myself as I pulled out the eight cards, "I can't use all of my Blue Eyes White Dragons. Max is three but I want to use that many, besides I don't have their fusion card, or polymerization. So it'd be a little pointless."

I being construction my forty-card deck then and one extra to be safe. So I had a deck of 41 cards, and I think I had plenty of food, I think, as I rummaged through my bag. Something shiny caught my eyes as I looked in my bag; slowly I pulled it out. It was the orb form earlier; form the package. I looked wearily at the crystal ball. It was beautiful but the memory of what the other objects did was still fresh in my mind, as I glared at it.

"You are not crawling in my skin," I muttered angrily as I shoved the ball back in my bag.

"Ms. Kimoto, we're here," announced the driver as we pulled up to a crowd, a boat loomed behind them.

I took the invitation card and looked at the boat then the cards. I finally put on my duel gauntlet and put the two star chips in it. I opened the door and stepped outside then said my thanks to the driver, and joined the line. I grabbed my bag tightly so much so that my knuckles turned white. Nervous fear beaded my forehead. My thoughts? Well these were my thoughts as I stood in the line consumed by fear. 'MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT!

MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT! MY FIRST TOURNAMENT!'

Was I panicking? Oh yeah! All thoughts of what would happen if I were taken out because I misunderstood a rule or I did something wrong. THIS WAS THE REASON I DIDN'T ENTER TOUNAMENTS EVEN THOUGH I WANTED TO!!! FEAR! I nearly jumped out of my skin when someone tapped on my shoulder.

"… Uh… Miss… You can board the ship now."

I looked to see a worried sailor stand over my shoulder the line was moving without me.

"Thank you," I said as I bowed slightly and climbed aboard. With the other duelist and was show were I would sleep, get some food, and the bathroom. The rooms where crowded and I was starting to hyperventilate so I left. Wow! I kept my cool on the streets and how I was losing it now was an absolute mystery to me. I wish so much wasn't riding on this tournament.

Yugi's grandpa.

Joey's sister.

Mokuba.

The fate of the world.

And here I was stuck in the middle of it, but my biggest question was how Pegusus even knew me? I just arrived in this world out of the blue, so unless someone that knew me told him about me, then there's no way he could know right? And last I checked Seto and Pegusus weren't on good terms, and no one else knew me at all except Seto and Mokuba.

I walked out onto the deck letting the cool salty breeze cool my skin slowly calming me down. It was beautiful as I stared out at the ocean.

"I have and idea of how to beat Exodia."

"What? Really? How?"

I looked around to see who was talking, but no one was around the voices were coming form the other end of the boat. One of the voices was a high, nasally voice; the other was sweet kind, almost prince like. Wait a minuet! That was Yugi's and Weevil's voice. Weevil was going to throw Yugi's cards over board. I rushed over to where I heard the voice coming from.

"Say good-bye to Exodia!" cried Weevil.

"No my Grandpa's cards!" cried Yugi.

I rushed around the corner to see a boy shorter than me with green bowl cut hair and bottle glasses with a bug-like frame. A huge grin was plastered on his face.

"Did you throw that boy's cards overboard," I demanded the boy I recognized as Weevil Underwood.

"Yes so who's asking," demanded Weevil the smile disappearing form his face.

I didn't even bother to think about it, well maybe a little. I pounded Weevil for being an idiot and grabbed a rope off the deck. You should have seen him; he had a bloody nose, and a few bumps. Serves him right. I heard a splash, signaling Joey jumping in to get Yugi's cards. As quickly as I could I tied on an end of the rope onto my waist, hopping it'd be long enough. I could see Yugi. I tossed my bag with my deck and food aside as I popped up next to Yugi. Yugi looked up at me just as his other friends began to show themselves form hiding. I tied the other end rope to the rail and jumped in after Joey. I could hear the workers on the boat cry 'man over board!'

"Hey!" I cried trying to find Joey.

Wow the ocean's cold as I felt my clothes get thoroughly soaked. The salty water kept splashing me and the cold was making it hard to swim. It was almost choking.

"Over here!"

The voice was a thick Brooklyn accent and it was a boy's so it was defiantly Joey. I forced my limbs to move in the direction of the voice and finally found the soaked blonde. I grabbed onto him. I could feel his own arms wrap around me.

"Hold on tight," I muttered as I felt someone tug on the rope and pull us back to the boat.

I probably should have wrapped the rope better because being pulled back into the boat by the waist hurts, but at least it wasn't my ankle that'd really hurt. The moment the air touched my body I began to shiver like crazy, boy was it cold. Finally Joey and me were back on the boat, and I could feel a dry warm blanket envelop me. I forced the blanket close to me gaining what little warmth I could.

"H-H-H-H-Hey… Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-You okay?" I stammered, my teeth chattering.

"Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Yeah… T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-Thanks," stammered Joey his teeth chattering as well.

"Come on you two. You'll catch your death if you stay here," said one of the sailors as they lead Joey and me to a room. I grabbed my bag and watched Yugi and his friends follow us. We went into separate bathrooms and changed into plain jeans and a T-Shirt, and went into a nice huge warm room to dry off. Joey and his friends were already there Joey had a cup of hot coco in his hand and was wrapped head to foot in blankets, his blonde hair was still slightly damp but it was drying faster than mine, because I was so long. Though I did undo the braid to air it out and dry off. I finally got a good look at Yugi and his friends. They looked the same as they did in the anime. I myself was wrapped in a blanket.

"Come on dear! Don't be shy, say hello to the boy you saved!"

I don't know whom it was, my guess was a worker but they shoved me in and I stepped funny on the blanket.

"AH!" I cried as I fell flat on my face, "… Ow…"

"Are you okay?"

I looked up to see Tea help me up and Yugi standing by me. A smile was set on his face as he handed me my bag I had dropped while falling. I could feel Tea lead me over to the couch and set me down.

"Hey thanks again for getting me out of there," said Joey.

"No problem…" I muttered nervously.

"Sorry we didn't introduce ourselves early," said Tea in a friendly way, "Hi my names Tea Gardner."

"I'm Triston Taylor," said Triston.

"Names Joey Wheeler," pronounced Joey.

"Hi I'm Yugi Moto," said Yugi smiling at me.

"Um… Hi… My name's Kelly. Kelly Kimoto," I answered looking up.

"Kelly… So Kelly why you here?" asked Triston.

"I guess you could say I' here to compete in the tournament," I answered as I sort of looked at the thought in disgust.

"You don't look to happy about it," remarked Tea.

"What do you mean sort of?" asked Yugi.

"Well… I'm suppose to be babysitting a friend's little brother while he's away," I began but then I panicked and grabbed my head, "If his brother finds out the truth of me messing up, my head will be displayed on a silver platter. I can hear Pegusus laughing on the sidelines."

"Wait a moment. Back up, back up. What'd you mean by your suppose to be babysittin' and what's this about Pegusus?" said Joey halting Kelly.

"I was sick at the time, but a friend asked me to watch over his little brother. When I got better I discovered my friend's little brother was kidnapped, Pegusus sent me a personal invitation to this tournament; he even mentioned kidnapping my friends little brother. I think he wants me to get him through this tournament. I can't tell my friend either. He's a real big shot, and he had something on his mind for a while now," I answered.

So you're here to save someone too," said Yugi in surprise.

"Yes," I replied.

"Who are you? And why did you bring me here?"

Here name was Leane; she was the eldest daughter, of the Fox Thieves of Midgar. You'd probably recognize Midgar form Final Fantasy VII. But unlike her younger brother and sister whom were foxes Leane was an Eagle half-breed demon. Long dark blue hair was down reaching the tips of her gold colored feathers that spread out to be wings; her gold eyes were sharp and piercing, perhaps more than her claws. She wore a sun shaped Medallion and a blue crystal was set in her bangle, a katana was strapped to her belt making her look all the more powerful. She wore jeans that were worn and torn at the bottom. A sky blue top with a jean jacket, and brown finger cut gloves. Also on the belt was a stack of cards she collected when she was in here world, they were mysterious and appeared before her all 40 of them, and she quickly learned how to use them.

"So you going to answer me!" demanded Leane.

"Of course my dear. My name is Zell," answered Zell, "And I summoned to this world away from your own to be a bodyguard for my princess until I need her that is," sneered Zell.
