A/N: Catlover: Wow… I got more reviews than I expected… I guess some of you like and do creepy stuff… That's cool! ¦:D! Well… not much news for now, so just read on!

Review Reply to anonymous: To Iris: Thank you n.n Glad you like the story! I like tigers too! In fact, I like anything that has to do with cats! Thanks for reviewing!

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

Warning: Okay… the warnings… first, this story might (might, not saying it's going to be there) 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…!

Important 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 and/or flashbacks.

NOW ON WITH THE FIC!

-Haunted-

Old Memories…

A young white haired boy looked at the dark skies expectantly as the dark clouds were moving over the big fields. Sighing as he knew that the clouds would take a long time to show the sun to him again, he looked at the cross-shaped stone in front of him.

Bakura Amane

1990-1997

Rest in peace

The boy sighed sadly again, as he looked away from the grave, up to the skies above him. Small tears that he had been holding for long now rolled down over his pale cheeks, looking at the dark gray clouds that moved above him.

"Ryou…" The low soft voice behind him shook the boy –now named Ryou- out of his reverie, as the boy quickly, almost viciously wiped the remaining tears of his cheeks.

Turing around as he felt a familiar warm hand on his shoulder, Ryou immediately hugged his father and cried in his chest. "Oh daddy…why…?"

Mister Bakura smiled sadly as he picked the small boy of the ground. "Shhhh… don't cry my little Ryou… I will be there for you…"

The older man, whose long dark blue hair was tied up in a lose ponytail, carried his still crying son away from the pale marble cross. While Mister Bakura walked to the car that they had parked not so far away, Ryou's green eyes glanced over the mans shoulder to look at the marble grave for the last time…

After both father and son were seated in the car, the eight year old boy looked out of the window, glancing at the sky again. Looking hopefully… as if he was waiting for a sign…

Mister Bakura looked at his son. It had been four days since the death of his daughter, and every time that they went to the cemetery, Ryou would stand in front of his sisters grave and look at the sky… always with that same hopeful look on his face… The man sighed. The boy never gave an explanation for his odd behavior, but then again, he never questioned him about it either…

Deciding that now was the right time to ask; Mister Bakura stopped the car, and parked it in the field that was close to the cemetery. Looking at Ryou, he noticed that the boy had stopped crying again. "Ryou… may I ask you something…?" He paused, as he waited for Ryou to nod his head, or give him a sign to talk again. When he heard a soft "Yes daddy" he began talking again. "I want to know why you always look at the sky when we are at your sister's grave"

Ryou stared at his own hands that were neatly folded on his lap, not looking in his fathers eyes, appearing to be shy. "Well I…" He paused to look at his father. "…don't know…" The boy finished lamely…

That was a lie. And they both knew it…The elder sighed, as he curled his fingers into his long blue hair. A sign of annoyance. "That's not it… tell me please…"

Ryou sighed. He was terrible at lying, and he should have known that his father would not fall for it. "My book said that if the sun shines on someone's grave after they've died shortly, that that someone will go to heaven…" He murmured, suddenly feeling very embarrassed with himself. What if this was an dumb answer?

"Oh…" Mister Bakura frowned at his son's reply. He knew what book Ryou was talking about. It was his son's favorite book, and Ryou had read it about a million times. 'The great mysteries of the world' was the name of the book, and it was indeed full of the so-called 'mysteries'. 'Why is the Bermuda triangle a triangle?' 'Do werewolves really exist?' 'Are ghosts real?' And other nonsense could be found in it. Almost every word that stood in it were all lies…

Mister Bakura frowned as he thought about how he had gotten that book. He had bought it for his son's birthday at the Occult shop. Mister Bakura had been surprised that at his young age, Ryou was so fascinated by Occult. And what surprised him more, was that the young boy desperately wanted a book from the creepy little shop. It had taken him ages to find a book a book to his likening, because all the other books talked about spirit summoning, self-sacrificing, rituals and other things he really didn't want his little Ryou to do… So this book was the most innocent of them all. And the good thing was, Ryou seemed satisfied with it.

Rubbing his temples, as the elder could feel a headache come up, Mister Bakura thought of a solution for this problem. It would take a while for the sun to come again, for it was autumn and it had rained for many days…

He sighed. If Ryou believed something than it would be hard to make him think otherwise, so the best he could do was just play the game with him…

"Well then…" The elder sighed. " How about we both go back tomorrow to see if the sun will shine on her grave…?" He asked faking a happy smile at the young boy.

A small smiled formed the young boy's lips as he suddenly hooked his pinky with the one of his father's. "Pinky-swear?" He asked grinning slightly at his father's dumbfounded look.

The elder smiled warmheartedly as he looked at their hooked fingers. "Pinky-swear" That was a promise…

Ryou grinned slightly as he threw his small arms around his father's neck. "Thank you daddy…!" Mister Bakura smiled as gave him one last kiss on his forehead, before he placed the young eight year old into his seat again.

After starting the car again, the two of them left the field that was close to the cemetery. They would be visiting this place soon again…

An eight year old Ryou stared out of the window, appearing to be bored out of his mind. It had been three months since the death of his sister… Three months without the sun shining on her grave…

The young boy sighed. Ryou began to think that the sun already shined on her grave as he didn't go to the cemetery every day. And of course, life goes on. Even in the Bakura residence. After a month or so, Ryou needed to go to school again, and Mister Bakura was needed at his work. And the only reason his father worked right now, was because he thought it would keep his thoughts away from of his daughter…

The young white haired boy frowned in irritation. He just had to know! He had to know that his sister was in heaven. He had tried to send letters to her, but they were never answered. If only she could give him a sign!

"Ryou! Are you coming downstairs? I made dinner for the both of us!" A cheery voice of a young teen called from down the stairs, shaking him completely out of his reverie.

Ryou sighed. "I'm coming Misua-chan!" The young boy yelled as he walked out of his room and into the hall.

When he walked into the kitchen, he was immediately greeted by a young and kind of fatty teenage girl. Misua-chan had short blond hair that was always pulled up into two pigtails, and she had friendly green eyes.

She had been hired by his father for about two months ago, and always took good care of Ryou and the house. Doing the chores in the afternoon, making dinner for him in the evening, and always leaving at seven o'clock after she made sure that Ryou's father got home safely… She was here to do the work his mother usually did… because sadly enough his mother died four years ago…

Misua-chan smiled happily as she put their dinner on the table. "Here you go Ryou, chicken-breast with vegetables! It may not look very tasty, but you will be happy with me when you're all big, healthy and strong in the future!" She said smiling as Ryou grimaced at the plate that was full with vegetables.

After dinner, Ryou excused himself as he walked to his room again. After all, he still needed to think of a plan how to make sure his little sister; Amane-chan was in heaven.

After thinking for a little while, Ryou looked into his 'The great mysteries of the world' book, and found out just what he needed…

An Ouija board…

Ryou smiled as he walked happily away from the little Occult shop. In his hands was a big box with silver wrapping around it…

He held an Ouija board in his hands…

Grinning happily at the silver wrapping around the box that covered his prize, Ryou practically skipped in happiness. The silver wrapping! It was such an ingenious plan of him!

Neither his father nor Misua-chan found his plan of trying to make contact with his little sister with an Ouija board, an very good idea. His father had even forbid him to buy it! But when Ryou quickly lied to his father that he needed to buy a present for one of his classmates, his father gave him enough money to buy his so-called 'present'. And if he wasn't so happy right now, the young boy would probably felt bad for lying to his father…

When he had entered the small and cramped Occult shop, the old lady at the counter had looked odd at him for a while. It was, after all, strange to see a boy as young as he was in a shop like she owned. Never less, she gave him what he wanted, and had explained to him how the Ouija board worked.

Later… when it was night time, the young boy sat in his room. Alone

Ryou had quickly set up the Ouija board, looking at the numbers and the alphabet that was on it. He had learned from the old lady that he had to use the Ouija board with one other person, for it was better to have someone with you. But still, Ryou believed that he could make it on his own just fine…

Ryou smiled nervously as he put the lights down low, and sat on his bed. The now set up Ouija board in front of him. He put on some candles, and grabbed a normal drinking glass to put it on the Ouija board…

When he felt that he was ready, Ryou put the Ouija board on his lap, and said. "I wish to speak with Bakura Amane. Is she here?"

only silence met him…

Feeling his whole body tingle, the boy waited nervously for the glass on the Ouija board to move. He waited for five minuets, but it seemed like hours too him.

After ten long minuets of total silence in the room, Ryou shivered as it suddenly got chilly in his bedroom… Shivering some more, he could feel the hairs on his neck begin to rise…

He felt as if someone was watching him…

The young boy's eyes widened as the drinking glass suddenly moved over to the word "YES" as if it had its own will. Ryou stared at the glass shocked, feeling his whole body stiffening. Choking on a scream, Ryou watched paralyzed with fear as the glass began to move again.

H-E-L-L-O short pause B-I-G short pause B-R-O-T-H-E-R

Ryou screamed loudly as he slapped the glass away in pure fright. The glass immediately shattered as it came in contact with the ground.

CHRASH!

"RYOU! What is wrong up there?" His father's voice bellowed concerned from downstairs. Ryou's eyes widened as he heard his father walk up the stairs. Thinking fast, Ryou quickly put the Ouija board in the mahogany colored box were it belonged in, and kicked the box under his bed before his father came in.

"Ryou…" The elder huffed from walking the stairs so quickly. "What is going on here…?"

"…" Ryou didn't reply. Instead, the young eight year old practically jumped into his fathers arms, sobbing loudly into his chest.

The elder stroked his soft white hair comfortingly, cooing some soft words in to the young boy's ears… "Shhh… let it all out, my little Ryou… let it all out…"

Later the young boy would tell his father that he had a nightmare… And that he 'accidentally' knocked over his glass when he was asleep… His father would believe him…

And even more later, he made himself a promise. That he would never do something with Occult again. He promised that to himself that day, when his father had aloud him to sleep next to him so that he wouldn't have another 'Nightmare'.

But of course, promises are easily broken. And right now, till this very day, Ryou was still interested into Occult…

And he would always be…

Ryou sighed as he thought back to that memory. Of course it had been a normal reaction for him to be scared of his Ouija board. He had only been eight at the last time that he had used it…! He was now seventeen, and he was sure now that it had not been real. No, it must have been a dream…

Yeah… a dream… that is what it was. Just his silly imagination…

Walking into his bedroom tiredly, Ryou crawled under the bed again and picked up the Ouija board he had just kicked away only minuets ago…

As if the box would attack him in his sleep, Ryou quickly threw the thing in to his closet, taking his night clothes out of the closet too.

After changing into his pajamas, the teen fell in a disturbed sleep…
