Summary: When his yami goes to the afterlife, Ryou finds all of his hopes and dreams die with him. Desperately seeking for comfort, he tries to reach his yami trough his Ouija board. But what if it takes other things with it…?

A/N: Catlover: Ooohhh… me writing a horror fic… even the thought of me writing it must scare you 8D! okay… never tried this before, so please bear with me if this sucks… I wonder if I can even scare myself! I'm always scared when it comes to stories like this! Hope you will like it…

DCatlover: Please enjoy the fic :)

Disclaimer: I don't own Yu-Gi-Oh!

Warning: Okay… the warnings… first, this story might contain very slight shounen ai that could be considered as close friendship and not love. Second, there will be talked about character death. And third, never EVER use an Ouija board just because you're curious. I never used one, but I'd rather not have other people use them. In fact, I would be scared shitless if I ever saw the thing move… So listen to me, never use one. And if you do, don't say I didn't warn you…!

Note: This fic is set after the Egyptian Arc, when yami Bakura and Atemu passed on to the afterlife. Idea's I've used are inspired by the movie "White Noise" (a really scary film, recommend!). This fic is not Beta read, so it might contain some grammar mistakes…

"Blah" is memories.

NOW ON WITH THE FIC!

-Haunted-

prologue…

Tic… tock… tic… tock… tic…

The big wand clock that leaned against the wall ticked slowly as the seconds turned to minutes, and the minutes turned to hours…

A sigh passed through the quiet living room that was owned by the owner of the small apartment… Said owner, looked at the clock sadly as he saw that only little time had passed since the last time he looked at it…

One month…

It had been one month that he was alone. Alone in this apartment, alone in his thoughts… and alone in his body… It had been one month since his yami left him alone for the afterlife…

One month… but it seemed like an eternity to him… As soon as his yami left him, he felt like a large part of him was ripped out of his whole. As if someone stole a part of his soul… a part that he liked very much…

Ryou thought back at the first three days of his so-called 'freedom'. At first he thought that he was free to go, and do what he wanted to do… That his yami could never threat his friends anymore… that he could even make more friends if he wanted to do so…

But how wrong he was…

As the first week passed, Ryou already began to feel lonely. Not only because his he lived alone, but too because he felt lonely in his head and body. His thoughts were now his thoughts alone. And his body was now his body alone. Everything he owned was his alone… And he found out that he missed the feeling of sharing…

Tic… tock… tic… tock… tic…

Ryou sighed as he looked away from the clock again. It would be another fifteen minutes before he had to go to school, but even those fifteen minutes seemed like hours in the quiet apartment.

Deciding that he couldn't take the silence anymore, the young white haired teen stood up from his seat, and walked over to his door, his schoolbag already packed for the day. He didn't mind if he would be a little bit early today…

As he walked his way to school, he first stopped at Kame Game shop, the house of his friend Mouto Yuugi. Smiling wirily, he walked to the usual group that always waited patiently for him and Yuugi to arrive.

"Good morning Bakura" The cheery voice of Anzu greeted him as he walked closer to the group. Jounouchi looked at him worried as the pale boy came closer. "Morning Ryou" He paused as he checked the boy frowning. "Are you alright?"

Ever since their yami's had been gone, Jounouchi had been more protective towards him and Yuugi than he ever had. Every time when he got the feeling that something was wrong, he would ask how they were doing, and would stay as long with them as he could to keep them company. Honda and Anzu had been there for them too. Both of them making sure that he and Yuugi wouldn't feel lonely.

Ryou forced a fake smile. "Yes, I'm fine Jounouchi-kun, thank you for asking"

Jounouchi seemed satisfied with this answer, his frown disappearing and grinning happily as he gave Ryou the thumbs up, then he turned around to talk to Honda and Anzu again.

All of them waited another few minutes, before they heard the front door of the Kame Game shop open slowly to reveal Yuugi.

Yuugi looked bad. Very bad to say at least. The short teen looked like he didn't catch very much sleep last night, and he was slightly paler than he used to be. His wide violet eyes were refusing to meet those of his friends, as he closed the door behind him softly.

Ryou frowned sadly as he looked at his short friend. Only he knew how Yuugi possibly felt. The short teen had a hard time too without his yami… maybe even more than he did… Ryou sighed. His yami was always there, but not always a nice company… but Atemu and Yuugi had been a team. Partners… real friends. And Ryou knew that Yuugi couldn't miss his friends for a long time…

"Good morning Yug'" Jounouchi said, doing the as he did to Ryou too. "How are you this morning?" Yet again he frowned as he looked at his other friend. "Are you sure you're feeling well enough to go to school today?"

Yuugi tried to force a smile too, but he really wasn't having any luck. He was having a lot of trouble with what Ryou called the 'How-are-you-this-morning?-test'. Ryou almost pitied his friend. Jounouchi could be so paranoid at times… he probably thought that Yuugi was going to kill himself one day!

Ryou smiled sadly at his friend. Yuugi had such a hard time with Atemu leaving. More than he did… He had been happy at first. Happy that he helped Atemu with the memories of his past… and that his yami could rest now in the afterlife…

…but now… Yuugi was probably feeling the same as he was… alone in mind, body and soul…

He looked back at Yuugi again, who was really looking nervous under Jounouchi's demanding questions. Deciding to help his friend out, Ryou changed the subject and talked about the Math's test they had to make today. That seemed to help, because Jounouchi immediately paled and squeaked "That test was today?!"

Honda laughed amused, and Anzu shook her head as they walked their way to school. Yuugi looked at him relieved as he muttered a "Thank you" under his breath.

And so the group walked to their school…

Scene change…

Ryou smiled satisfied when he came home again. He and the rest of the group had decided to eat some hamburgers after school (which made Yuugi a little bit happier), and after that go to the Kame Game shop to play some RPG games.

When Ryou was there, he already decided what he was going to do when he would come home. He would clean up his apartment, for it had been very messy since he always was away. Cleaning always made him relax a little bit, and for the silence he would just listen to the radio to ignore it.

Humming happily with the song that played on the radio, Ryou grabbed some of his cleaning stuff and began cleaning the kitchen cupboards idly. Rubbing some grime off kitchen counter, and doing the dishes of the last day.

When he was done with the small kitchen, Ryou worked his way to the living room. Dusting some of the furniture, and cleaning the glass table that stood in the living room.

"Yuck…!" Ryou sighed as he found a brown piece half eaten fruit that was probably left behind by Jounouchi since his last visit. The hungry teen had plundered his whole refrigerator and freezer that night…

After cleaning the living room too, Ryou grabbed the vacuum cleaner that he always held in the hall of his apartment. Now it was time for his bed room to be cleaned. His bed room wasn't the dirtiest room in the house, but it was definitely very dusty in there.

When he had sucked up most of the dust, Ryou began to vacuum-clean under his bed. It had probably been a long time since he had done this, because there were dust-bunnies everywhere… He was actually surprised when the vacuum cleaner bumped onto something hard.

Putting of the vacuum cleaner, the white haired teen crawled under his bed to look what it was. After grabbing a box from under his bed, Ryou looked what it was…

…only to recognize to contents of it…

"M-my Ouija board!" Ryou stuttered surprised as he let the wooden box fall down in shock.

Feeling goose bumps on his arms, Ryou tried to suppress a shiver as he looked at the wooden mahogany colored box.

The box looked quite simple and innocent, with big with letters saying "Ouija board". The box was just a normal box… so why did it scare the white haired teen so much…?

Remembering his last encounter with this wooden box, Ryou shuddered and kicked the thing quickly under his bed again, storming out of his bed room. When he was in the in the living room, sitting on a coach, he let himself catch his breath again.

Leaning back tiredly on the couch, Ryou thought back at the last time that he had seen his Ouija board…

Something he didn't want to remember actually…
