The song is I'll Follow The Sun, by Beatles

The night was falling down, last sun rays were shyly touching the grand building that was the Duelling Academy. There was murmur of laughter and shrieks were occasionally ripping the warm summer air. The graduates were celebrating. Blue, Yellow and Red, all of them were mixing together, truly and perfectly, if only for one day.

Brown eyes, usually shinning with laughter and good will, were sad. The slight youth was looking at the group of blue – clad, now ex – students of Obelisk. Or, better, one particular, blue – haired duellist. Just then, tall, girl, with long brown hair hugged him. The bluenette kissed her softly.

His heart gave another pang. A whisper of wind ruffled his wild mane of shiny brown hair lightly. He would give anything, to have those calm, almost cold azure eyes gazing at him warmly, just like the bluenette stared at his beaming girlfriend now. He wanted to hate her for taking the blue – haired god from him but he knew that Ryo has never been ''his''. He was just the ''dropout boy'', after all… Juudai shook his head roughly. He swung his gray duffel bag on the back. In there, were his things, including the cards he had collected during his years there. The Millenium Items were safely locked away in the headmater's office. He only kept the Millenium Pendant. Absently caressing the small disc that hung from delicate, but strong steel chain, he smiled, remembering all the adventures he had gone through, along with his friends. But now, it was time, to close that particular chapter of his life, and move on.

One day you'll look to see I've gone
For tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun

He left the letters to each of his friends – yes, even Chronos – sensei. He had explained his absence before rather easily, as the story was quite believable – that he had felt sick. He hadn't liked to lie to Sho, but it was for the better… And Ryo… 'No. He'll never knew that I Iove him. He'll be happier, along with Asuka..' he thought determinedly.

Some day you'll know I was the one
But tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun

He looked at the watch. ''Yipe! If I don't hurry, I'll miss my traject!'' he yelped. Taking one last look at the group, silently asking them to forgive him, Juudai began runnung.

And now the time has come
And so my love I must go

He ran, as if devils would chase after him. Something stung in his eyes suspiciously. 'Ah, it's only a fly,' Juudai tried to reassure himself. Not wanting to admit, the real reason for his departure. He would miss him.

'Ryo…'

And though I lose a friend
In the end you will know, oooh

He stumbled on the rough path, and fell. Knees scraped, like his hands. He pounded the dusty ground with his fist. ''Dammit!'' He cried out. ''Why? Why?'''Small, glittery droplets began to slide down his face.

One day you'll find that I have gone
But tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun

He stood up, dusting himself off roughly. The scrapes stung, but only a little. After all, he had it worse in duels. ''Why does my heart hurts still?'' He managed to get out with quivering voice. Hauling the duffel bag on his shoulder again, he noticed his hands trembling violently. Sighing a shaky sigh, he tried to calm his wayward emotions. And he ran.

His feet were carriying him swiftly. Though he still sobbed, he found out, that his breathing eased itself out. A small, tremulous smile made it's way on his face. He felt it more of a grimace, but his heart was just a tiny, really tiny bit lighter. ''Yes, I loved him, '' Juudai admitted it to himself. ''But maybe… maybe it was simply not meant to be.'' With that, he speed off running towards the setting sun.

Yea, tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun
And now the time has come
And so my love I must go
And though I lose a friend
In the end you'll know, oooh

Sighing a quiet sigh, he leaned on the rail, looking into the slowly darkening sky. ''Beautiful night, huh?'' asked one of the passengers, an elder lady. She was petite, with white hair and kind smile. Her eyes twinkling merrily, Juudai found it hard not to smile back. '' Yeah… But tomorrow may rain…''

One day you'll find that I have gone
But tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun
