No. 5: Thou Pharoah Shall Feel Pretty
Yami brushed away one of Yugi's strands of hair. The little tyke was sleeping in; he had had a busy day yesterday. Yami smiled and cooed at the sight. Yugi was just so damn cute right there! His eyes shut, his brows raised slightly, his shirt lifted slightly, and his lips, Oh Ra, those lips were plump and slightly open. Yami couldn't resist, could you?
He bet down and pressed his lips to his hikari. So sweet the light tasted, like candy that tingled your lips. When he pulled back, he saw Yugi was awake and smiling at him.
"I had a dream about you, and I woke up in a better dream," Yugi whispered.
Yami smiled and let the boy sit up. "It's time for school, koi."
They both got dressed and ready for school. They met their friends along the way and they chit-chatted and laughed and joked. No one seemed to notice that the two had been holding hands the entire time.
When they got to the school, Yami knew something was up. Everybody was snickering at them and whispering to each other.
They're probably laughing at me and Yugi being together, Yami thought as he sent death glares at the kids.
But he was wrong and they found out why they were snickering when they entered the school.There, right in front of them, was a large mural of Yugi in the pink frilly dress.
But it wasn't just that, oh no. It was everywhere. Copies of it had been taped and stapled to the walls, lockers, everywhere! Everywhere you looked, there was Yugi in that dress.
Everyone turned back and looked at Yugi who had wide eyes and on the verge of tears. Laughter roared around them and Yami felt so miserable. Yugi pushed past everyone and ran off. Yami wanted to go after him, but he was the reason why this was like this.
"Like the new decorations?" came a high pitched voice. Everyone turned to see Li standing there with her arms crossed and a smug smile on her face. "I did it myself."
Yami glared at her, "Li! You are an evil little girl!" What was he supposed to say to her? If he had been the pharoah he once was, her soul would be sent to the shadow realm, but he wasn't and she wasn't.
She just smiled at him, her eyes now full of fire and ice. "I said you would regret dumping me. And I never go back on my word." With that she stuck her nose in the air and walked off with a little more swaying in the hips.
Yami bit his lip in anger and Jounouchi put a hand on his shoulder. "You go after Yugi. I think he might be in the gym. We'll take care of these," he motioned to the pictures. Anzu and Honda had already began tearing them down.
Yami nodded and took off down the hall. But then he stopped in thought. If only there was a way to make Yugi feel better. He'd do anything to make Yugi feel better….anything….Yami suddenly went the opposite way of the gym, coming up with a new plan.
"Hey princess boy!"
"Don't you look all cute?"
"Should you even be in the boy's room since you're a girl?"
Yugi ignored them. It couldn't get any worse. Then he got to his locker where there was pink graffiti and fluffy feathers with 'princess' on it. He tore them off and quickly got dressed while he ignored the boys' comments about walking him to the door.
It was just a stupid dare that Yami suggested. Hey, he got twenty bucks out of it, but the twenty bucks seemed so small to how low he was feeling now. He knew it would pass, but he felt so embarrassed. He told Yami to burn the picture or throw it away, not keep it! But he couldn't be mad at his darker half; it wasn't his fault.
He walked into the gym and saw a line of boy's bowing to him and girls giggling and laughing. Yugi didn't walk by them, but went to the back and stood. He was tired of this crap. He kept telling himself it would pass, it would pass in time. He sighed, wishing time would hurry up and pass.
The coach walked up, "Today we will not exercise because of the prep rally." Yugi frowned. He had forgotten about that. "We will go ahead and go to the football field."
"Sit with us, Princess Yugi!"
"Over here, your highness!"
"We saved you a spot, m'lady!"
Yugi ignored their laughter and whistling as he walked across the bleachers and sat next to his friends. It was then he noticed that his darker half was absent.
"Where's Yami?" he asked.
Jounouchi shrugged, "I was just about to ask you the same thing."
Yugi sat next to them and just kept his eyes on the cheerleaders and dancers who were doing their routine to the band music, and not the boys who were trying to get his attention by holding up copies of the picture.
Suddenly the music kicked off and the dancers looked around confused. There was a loud crackle before the speakers kicked on again.
"I'm sorry for the interruption, but I have a few words I would like to say."
Yugi and the others all looked at each other. That sounded like Yami.
"Yugi, I know you probably hate me for what happened, and I want to say I'm sorry, but I don't think its good enough." It was Yami. "Yugi, you're very special to me. I don't want you to be mad at me. I feel so gulty for all of this. So I thought of an idea for your forgiveness and punishment for myself. Will everyone please direct their attention to the announcer's box?"
Everyone shifted their eyes to the top box above the stands. Yugi had no idea what was going on and he, like everyone else, waited with anticipation. Then the door opened and slowly Yami stepped down with a mic in his hand.
And he was wearing the same dress Li wore in the play.
The stadium had never been so silent. Everyone stared at him with their eyes as big as saucers and their jaws nearly to the floor.
The dress was a bell formed with the blouse frilly with matching sleeves. It was a deep purple that matched some of his hair. A silver plastic tiara was perched in his tricolor locks and he had even stuffed his feet into high heel shoes. He actually looked…pretty.
He cleared his voice and the speakers echoed with his sound. "Music please." Someone in the box, who Yugi saw was Ryou, turned on the music and it played through the speakers. Yugi almost fell over when he recognized it.
"I feel pretty. Oh so pretty. I feel pretty and witty and GAY!" Yami sang. It was supposed to be funny, but everyone was silent with shock. "And I pity any girl who isn't me today."
Suddenly there was some clapping and people finally seemed to realize that the most popular boy in school was wearing a dress and singing the 'I feel pretty' song.
More and more laughter until the stands were shaking with it. Yami kept singing in a high pitched girly voice. "I feel charming, oh so charming. It's alarming how charming I feel. And so pretty, that I can hardly believe I'm real."
Yugi cupped his mouth because he was laughing too hard. This was enough. Yami didn't have to embarrass himself to get Yugi's forgiveness….well, not alone. Yugi moved through the crowd and down to where Yami was and tapped him on the shoulder. Yami looked at him and smiled and pulled him to him and they both shared the mic.
"See the pretty girl in that mirror there? Who can that attractive girl be? Such a pretty face. Such a pretty dress. Such a pretty smile. Such a pretty me! I feel stunning. And entrancing; feel like running and dancing for joy! For I'm loved by a pretty wonderful boy!"
"Okay, here you go," Yami said as he signed his name on a piece of paper and handed it to the girl. "Keep a good hold on that because someday it'll be famous."
Yugi giggled as the girl skipped off. "You know, Yami, you can take the dress off now."
Yami smiled at him, "I'm kind've liking it now. It gives my legs air to breathe, and it's like being in Egypt again."
"Or at least Scottland."
They laughed and that's when Li stepped up. "And I thought you could sink no lower, but it looks like I'm wrong." She tutted and shook her head, "You look absolutely ridiculous."
Yugi narrowed his eyes at her, but Yami just smirked. "You're just mad that I look better than you did." She 'hmphed' and went on her merry way as Yami stuck her tongue out at her.
Yugi took Yami's hand in his and Yami looked at him. "You don't have to go all out just to please me, Yami," Yugi told him, his amethyst eyes sparkling. "Just tell me you love me."
Yami smiled and kissed him on the forehead. "I love you, Yugi-koi." He then kissed him on the lips.
