Sorry 4 the Wait!


In the royal Egyptian palace, it was far from normal. The pharaoh, Atem was about to pace a hole in the floor, while his servants and friends set idly by. It wasn't like they could do anything anyway. Atem's wife Anzu had just been brutally raped. Add to the fact that they could not do a thing about, seeing as they did not have a clue who on Earth would have the audacity to do such a thing. Everyone in Egypt knew Anzu was the pharaoh's wife, and everyone knew he loved her dearly. So they were all sitting there, waiting for Isis to update them on Anzu's condition. As Isis walked out of the room, everyone knew the information could not be good. That was written clearly on her face.

"How's Anzu?" Atem asked immediately, turning his attention from wearing a hole in the floor, to inquiring about his wife.

"Not good," Isis replied sadly. "Atem, I really hate being the bearer of bad news, but I don't think Anzu should have any male visitors for a while."

"Oh, mumbled Ate, obviously distraught. He really wanted to see Anzu. He really didn't need to see her. No, he needed to hold her, to listen to her, just to be near her, to tell her everything was going to be okay. He really needed to be in her presence, and now Isis was saying that wasn't possible.. That literally shattered his heart into a million pieces.

Isis could see the obvious disappointment in Atem's voice as he sat on the golden floor. She knew he loved Anzu dearly, probably more than he loved himself.

"Did she say anything? A name?" Atem asked hopefully. He really wanted to kill the guy who did this to his wife.

"She just kept repeating 'Bakura, please don't hurt me' over and over again." Isis really hoped that she helped.

"Bakura as in the Thief King Bakura?" Seto asked talking for the first time in hours.

"Maybe," Isis replied. "How do you know about him?"

"People say he saw his entire village get destroyed. The villagers were evil, so Atem's father had them all slaughtered. The evil is where the millennium items came from. He is one of the only two people who survived. No one knows who the other one is," Seto replied. No one was really surprised he knew that. Seto spent all his time gaining knowledge about everything around him. If there was something you needed to know, Seto was the guy to ask. It might take a lot of poking and prodding, but eventually he just might decide to tell you. Ignoring people was one of Seto's greatest hobbies.

"I should go and check on Anzu," Isis said leaving the room using the same door she came out of some time ago. By now it was early morning and everyone except some servants, the high priest, and some guards were asleep. "Atem, you really need to get some sleep."

"Okay, he replied distracted by thinking. He knew he was not going to be able to sleep for a long time, but this was the way he could help Anzu.


Sorry for the wait, but school work comes first. Thank you for the reviews. I never thought I could get so many!
