Chapter 1
Yuugi, meet Yami


-Not much more now..-

Clink. Clink.

A young boy with tri-colored hair and innocent, violet eyes was diligently working on the puzzle while sitting at his desk. Not just any puzzle-- the puzzle. He was sitting at his desk, in his blue pajamas that were adorned with yellow stars. The aforementioned puzzle had been a gift from his Jii-chan eight years ago. Yup, he had been working on this puzzle for eight years.

And he was finally about to solve it.

He took a minute to stretch out his arms, leaning back on his chair. He had been working on his puzzle since he had gotten home from school and it was now quite a bit past his bed-time. But that didn't matter now. He was nearly finished with the puzzle.

-Wait till I tell Jou and the others!- He thought happily. True, his friends didn't understand why he had spent so much time on some puzzle, but to Yuugi it wasn't just some puzzle.

It was special. He could feel it.

His Jii-chan had told him the stories. No one before had ever been able to solve it (his Jii-chan included), those who originally discovered the puzzle had died gruesome and mysterious deaths, the one who could solve the puzzle would have their every wish granted, etc.

Yuugi wasn't sure if he believed the wish part. But he did know that puzzle was special.

Clink. Clink.

He rubbed his eyes tiredly and glanced at the clock. 1:04 a.m.


-Finally! The last piece.-

Yuugi gulped somewhat nervously. He was having a hard time suppressing his excitement. The very last piece of the puzzle, a piece with an odd, eye-like symbol on it. Just put this one piece in and the puzzle is complete.

He carefully picked it up, and gently put it in its place. He unconsciously held his breath.

And then it happened.

The lighting dimmed and the puzzle started to glow golden, its brightest point being the eye-symbol.

Yuugi did what was natural. He yelped, pushed away from his desk (and in doing so flipped over his chair) and scrambled against the wall farthest from the freaky-glowing-puzzle-thing.

His eyes were wide. Most would compare his face to a 'deer-in-the-headlights' look.

A wind started to pick up. How, Yuugi didn't know, as the window was closed. The wind seemed to be coming from the freaky-glowing-puzzle-thing which was still freaky, still glowing, and still a puzzle. The wind started to take shape, forming a hurricane of what appeared to be gold glitter.

-No, it's...sand!-

Golden sand was swirling around the freaky-glowing-puzzle-thing in a perfect hurricane. But now that the hurricane had formed, there was no more wind (which meant things had stopped flying around) and (despite there seemingly being nothing to hold it up) the sand stayed where it was. Floating over the puzzle.

-Well... this is... weird.-

Oh yes, this was definitely weird. How often does floating sand come out of a puzzle you've been working on for eight years?

The sand floated. The puzzle glowed. Yuugi blinked. The sand floated some more. The puzzle glowed some more. Yuugi blinked some more.

He started to wonder if he had fallen asleep working on the puzzle. It wouldn't be the first time. He was just started to think of ways to wake himself up, when he heard a deep, baritone voice.

"What is your wish my Master?"

Yuugi (who had spaced off previously) yelped and looked up.

Amethyst eyes met crimson.

Yuugi blinked again as he looked over at this new person, who had just...appeared from...somewhere.

He appeared to be only slightly older than Yuugi, maybe nineteen at the most. Yuugi and the teen standing before him also looked somewhat similar; the same shaped face and features, except the other teen's features were sharper. This other person was also taller than Yuugi and though he had the same style of hair, though his was tipped in red while Yuugi's was tipped in purple and three of the other man's bangs were sticking straight up. His skin was tanned as well. He was wearing some sort of linen kilt-thing, golden sandals, a red cape and there was a golden crown on his head.

Yuugi tried to slow down his heartbeat. -He's very... handsome.- Yuugi blushed at his own thought.

Shaking his head slightly, Yuugi mumbled, "Oh yeah... definitely dreaming."

Of course he didn't mean for the other teen to hear, but it was dream so who cares?

He was rewarded with a deep chuckle.

"I assure you little one, this is no dream." The person said.

"Right. So, I really did solve the puzzle I've been working on for eight years, it glowed, floating sand appeared, and then you appeared, and the sand.. disappeared?" Yuugi finished, noticing for the first time, that the sand had indeed, vanished.

"Correct." The person smirked.

"Um... who are you?" Yuugi asked.

"I am the Genie of the Puzzle. Yami Atemu."

"I thought Genies were supposed to live in lamps?"

"Some do. I preferred my puzzle--it allowed me to be more... selective of my masters."

As Yuugi was taking this all in, the Genie-person--Yami, was taking him in.

Yes, he had made a fine choice. --What a delectable mortal.--

Yami smirked. A very nice choice.


"Huh?" Yuugi suddenly looked up at Yami. "Did you just say something?"

Yami just smirked. "Me? No, I didn't say a word. Tell me little one, what is your name?"

"Ah! S-sorry! I'm Yuugi Mutou. Very nice to meet you." Yuugi said with a somewhat dazed expression.

Yami frowned suddenly noticing the glaze Yuugi's eyes had taken. He realized it must have been late, and Yuugi must be very tired. He wrinkled his nose in annoyance. He would have to continue his talk with his Master later.

That's right. His.

As it was, the boy seemed to have just accepted the entire thing as a dream and thus was taking nothing serious. Yami resisted the urge to sigh.


"I think you should sleep my Master."

"Okay." Yuugi got up soundlessly and walked over to his bed. Yami watched with some amusement as Yuugi seemed to be on auto-pilot mode. He just hoped his Master would remember this "dream" when he woke up.

Yuugi was already curled up under his blankets, sleeping peacefully. In his auto-pilot mode he had completely forgotten about the lights. After cleaning the mess his entrance had made (all he had to do was snap his fingers--magic came in very handy) Yami shut the lights off and sat cross-legged, floating just above his Master's bed.

He looked at the angelic face, and his eyes darkened. "You are mine Yuugi. Mine and mine alone."

With that, he closed his eyes in meditation waiting for his master to wake. After "sleeping" for 3,000 years, he wasn't particularly in the mood for a nap.
