« I don't know what that means?" she said frowning, debating with herself whatever hidden meaning she failed to grasp. Alright, she just needed to draw a deep breath, calm herself a little then jump to conclusion.
As she brought the strange thing nearer, her scrutinizing violet eyes were lost in the brightness of the colour. She sighed, her mind being quickly distracted by the thoughts of someone's hair whose colour was much dirtier. As the link was quickly made, she started pondering on just how she found him cute, or didn't, or maybe she actually did but won't admit it, or again didn't but didn't know it.
Isn't it confusing, she said to herself. Dropping the subject all together at once, Mai decided to look back at some events that lead to this fateful moment.
24 hours earlier, somewhere in Domino.
Duke and Tristan were lurking around; doing nothing in particular since they were only useful whenever Serenity was to be seen. Even though they haven't seen her in about two years and a half, it was always nice to argue over her bridal future.
Tea, trapped in the shadows that were shadowed themselves by the presence of Bakura, was waiting eagerly for some helpless souls to pass by, so she can lure them into some hidden meaning of friendship.
Don't ask her what Yami Marik was doing with them. But he sounded really evil mainly because his features were portrayed in a very hideous way, let alone his laugh that always rings false. For a second, she wondered if he had actually an implant in his throat, which will explain his mechanically altered laugh.
She herself tried to start a conversation with the older version of Yugi - little Yugi being somewhere in that miniature pyramid- but their attempts failed, and the communication between them reached a serious break-down. His voice being so raspy and all that he burped more than he talked while he accused her of squealing. She didn't squeal, it was hapiness………..but that is beside the point.
Pity that Kaiba wasn't there, really! She couldn't blame the poor CEO though; his little cute brother that was last time seen happily striding in the main avenue of Domino along with four well-build bodyguards had been kidnapped. The nature of technology that was used to abduct him was not identified yet. But since it was very complicated and sophisticated, it was suspected that it had some very ancient Egypt origins. Some even suggested something related to the lost Atlantis. But nothing has been confirmed yet.
The little squad was up to the rescue since Tea found the moment highly appropriate to remind them of the friendly bonds they share. When the pretty brunette finally managed to arouse their spirits, Mai got an instant message saying that the little boy was safely rescued. The storage capacity of her mobile was too small but it still held some important details about the highly secret rescue operation.
Kaiba had burst into the warehouse and shot the silver haired man who, by the way turned to be a CEO himself. Not a major loss! The CEOs breed seemed to be immune to extinction these days.
Mokuba who was sitting in the corner, his puppy dog eyes watering and all, flew into his big brother's welcoming arms. Each sob ripped out the heart of the tall brunette. The poor thing was so scared for the whole three minutes and fourteen seconds he had been held in captivity, even if the period appeared lengthier as many episodes were aired- some were even re-aired at night just to add to the killing suspense- before arriving at that joyful moment that no viewer had expected even in the most wildest dreams.
What Mai didn't know because Kaiba had sold more than the half of his stocks to prevent the media from divulgating this horrible secret, was that the above-mentioned freak was that close to put his little cherished brother under intense torture.
"Seto", the little boy said between hiccups, "I knew you would come. He was about….he was about…."
Kaiba eyes turned a deep shade of blue, anger marring his attractive features. Mokuba was practically drown in his tears but when he faintly heard his brother's promise to exonerate him from Kaiba Corp related stuff, he found the courage to blurt the terrible news.
"It was awful; he tried to tickle my feet with that white feather, but he never got the chance to." And he pointed shakily at the terrifying thing.
Kaiba was indeed furious. He had killed that monster but his quench for revenge was not satisfied yet. Glaring intensely at the feather, he remembered some twins that were related to that awful man.
Since Kaiba was known for his abnormal capacity to hide his most hidden feeling that he himself would never suspect the existence, it was clear that the choice of the colour of the torture instrument was greatly appreciated.
Back to today's Mai.
True, Mai didn't need those details but she thought they make nice appetizers and entries before arriving at the main suspect. Mai for once decided to handle that particular case with professionalism. Hum, a pair of spectacles will give her more insight and brains. After all, blondes were known for their dumbness.
Let's see, strange choice of colour. She noted that important piece of information in a yellow notebook. Feeling all of sudden tired after such an extensive effort, she went to rest.
a/n: what do you think about this start? I don't plan to make it long anyway.
