Serenity- Aww it's ok cq

Ryou- yeah... the show must go on!

cq- - sniffles Really?

Ryou and Serenity- Yeah -

cq- Ok!


"All right class, settle down" Ms. Robinson said.

Everyone was quiet. Ms. Robinson nodded. "Thank you" she said. "Now, for our next production, we are going to focus on Gaston Leroux's book, The Phantom of the Opera"

The room started buzzing again. Ms. Robinson held up a hand. The kids were quiet again. "Now, who knows the plot of the story?"

Several kids raised their hand. "Yes, Mr. Howard" Bandit Keith, as he was known to the others, grinned at the rest of the group. "Two lovers get sick of each other so they commit suicide?" he asked.

Most of the kids sweat dropped.

"Ummm. no. I think you are referring to Romeo and Juliet, who happened to be very much in love"

Ms. Robinson frowned and sniffed as if offended. "and that is in the Shakespearean era, Mr. Howard. If you paid attention in English Literature, you would know that" Keith rolled his eyes

"Now then," the teacher said, waving her hands in a theatrical like manner. "Who else would like to tell me, correctly, the plot of the story?"

"A deformed musical genius tries to hide himself behind a mask. He falls in love with his protege, Christine Daee, and gets jealous when her boyfriend Raoul tries to take him from her"

All heads turned to where Seto Kaiba was sitting looking nonchalantly around the room. "What?" he asked.

Yami, Tea, Yugi, Rebecca, Ryou and Serenity sweat dropped. Ms. Robinson looked surprised. "Well, thank you Mr. Kaiba, for that most accurate description." Seto shrugged, stealing a glance at her.

Oh man, what am I getting myself into? He thought. Just because we have the same middle names as the characters doesn't mean we'll actually get the parts! I can hoot here and there, but I can't actually sing!

Seto shuddered. He suddenly snapped to attention. "Places, places, students, now settle down" everyone stopped talking. "Now then, why don't we break into groups, parts for Christine...Raoul...Erik... and so on"

Seto stole another glance at her. He knew she'd heard it. He decided to get in line. The part for Erik couldn't be that bad now, could it? Besides, Erik was his namesake.

Ms. Robinson handed everyone their scripts. "We will start with the girls first, to find Christine"

Nearly all of the girls lined up for the part of Christine.

Behind the stage, someone whistled lowly. "Wow, I didn't know I was that popular" Another voice chuckled. "You have talent, my dear" both started laughing lightly.

Several kids and hours passed before it was Serenity's turn.

Serenity's POV

My heart started hammering in my chest.

I couldn't help myself, I was so nervous.

Then I remembered what Ryou told me. 'Don't worry about the sound and the other kids love, just go and have fun'

I smiled to myself and looked at the teacher. "What song should I sing?" I asked.

"Any one you would like, my dear." the teacher told me. "Ok," I said. "Ryou, could you come up here, please?"

Ryou smiled at me and came up the stairs.

I sat down on the chair and took out my compact. Ryou chuckled lowly.

He started toward the end of the stage and waited until I was ready.

Such a gentleman - I thought to myself.

Normal POV

Backstage, Erik looked onto the stage and noticed a young red haired girl sitting on the chair.

"Erik, what are you doing?" Christine asked. Erik smiled at her.

"When she gets finished, I will help her on the next part."

Christine folded her arms and frowned at him. "Humph" she said softly.

"Oh, my dear," Erik whispered, "You will always be my Angel of Music, but now I must help another gain her wings"

Christine smiled at her fiancée and kissed him. "Very well, but hurry back." Erik nodded.

Ryou came on stage, looking like Bakura, but the others knew better. Several of the girls whistled.

Ryou rolled his eyes and focused on Serenity. "Little Lottie let her mind wander," he said, his voice like silk. Serenity found herself shivering.

"Little Lottie thought, am I fonder of dolls, or of goblins or of shoes?" Serenity looked at him and smiled. "Raoul" she smiled. He chuckled.

"Or of riddles or frocks" "Those picnics in the attic" "Or of chocolates" Ryou said walking closer to her.

"Father playing the violin" "As we read to each other...Dark stories of the North" Ryou grinned and knelt down next to her.

The two smiled at each other, In truth, they were thinking of their own childhood together, Ryou protecting Serenity when she was only 6 years old; those months in France spent with the Kaiba family.

"No, one of the best, Lottie said, is when I'm asleep in my bed... and the Angel of Music sings songs in my head" she sang that part perfectly.

"The Angel of Music sings songs in my head" Ryou sang along with her in perfect harmony.

"Ah, you sang like an angel tonight" Ryou said as he hugged her.

Off stage, Seto scowled. No way that British brat would end up as Raoul!

The piano started to play the Angel of Music melody.

Serenity began again, a little louder this time.

"Father said, 'When I'm in heaven, child, I'll send the Angel of Music to you' And I have, Raoul, I've been visited by the Angel of Music"

Ryou shook his head as he looked up at her. "Oh, no doubt of it," he got up walking behind her, toward the end of the stage. "And now, we go to Summer"

"No, Raoul, the Angel of Music is very strict" Ryou grinned. "I shan't keep you up late." he giggled.

They all paused for a minute, Ryou and his brother, Norin Bakura Stevens, howling their heads off.

Erik and Christine giggled a little too.

Ryou calmed himself and took a deep breath. "I'll go fetch my carriage, two minutes Little Lottie."

"No, Raoul wait!" Ryou was gone. Serenity took her jacket from the end of the chair and put it on.

Suddenly, the lights dimmed dark, the single candle on the piano blown out (by a fan -)

The single light focused lightly on Serenity. A few seconds, and then...

Insolent boy, this slave of fashion

Basking in your glory!

Ignorant fool! This brave, young suitor,

Sharing in my triumph!

Serenity gasped but continued on with the song

Angel, I hear you,

Speak I listen

Stay by my side, guide me

Serenity gulped. Suddenly for some strange reason, she felt guilty.

Angel my soul was weak, forgive me

Enter at last, Master

Erik came out from his hiding spot, his cloak trailing along behind him. His hood was on, and he had on the white mask, so there was no way in his mind that she could see his face. He stepped over to the sliding mirror crop.

Flattering child you shall know me,

See why in shadow I hide,

Look at your face in the mirror,

I am there Inside!

Serenity walked over to the mirror, somewhat entranced.

Angel of Music, guide and guardian

Grant to me your glory

Angel of Music, hide no longer,

Come to me, strange Angel

Erik smiled at the girl. She did indeed have the voice of an angel, but it was nothing compared to Christine's. Perhaps with a bit of coaching...?

He took the girl's hand, leading her to the stairs.

I am your Angel of Music

Come to me Angel of Music

No interruptions this time Erik thought wryly.

I am your Angel of Music

Come to me Angel of Mus-----ic

The piece ended. Everyone, even Ryou who was in the back, applauded. Erik smiled at Serenity and kissed her hand.

"Merci beaucoup, Monsieur" she smiled. "You are welcome" Erik said in English, smiling back at her.

He then turned to the rest of the people off stage. "Monsieurs, Mademoiselles, please allow me to introduce myself. I am Erik Malheim, some of you know me as the original Phantom of the Opera." he said with a bow.

"I promise you," he said, "That as long as you do as your teacher says," he smiled at Rosalyn. She blushed.

"That I will not destroy your production. But beware, and be warned! On another note, I have been listening with my fiancée Christine while working back stage, and I think,"

He stopped as Christine came on stage. She bowed and everybody clapped.

Erik pretended to frown. The kids giggled.

"Where is the young man who played Raoul De Changy?" Ryou came back on stage.

"Ah" Erik smiled, placing a hand on each teens shoulder.

"Monsieurs, Mademoiselles, I believe you have found your protege's for Raoul and Christine"

Everybody clapped and cheered. Ryou and Serenity smiled at each other.

It was then that Christine noticed that Ryou squeezed Serenity's hand. She couldn't wait to tell Erik!

"Now" Erik continued, roaming his gaze along the lines of the young men.

"Gentleman, All those who are not in favor of this young couple preforming together, raise your hands"

All stayed down but one. Erik noticed Serenity shaking, and Ryou glaring at the person.

"I don't" Seto said.

Erik tilted his head to the side, failing to hide his smile.

"I believe also that you have found the person who takes my role in the production."

He tried not to look at Christine. "Can you sing?" Erik asked.

Seto glared at Ryou. "A little" he said.

Erik nodded at the piano player. "Then perhaps you will be able to sing this song."

Music of the Night! Seto thought. He glanced at Serenity. He just didn't want to mess up.

"Ok" he said. Erik nodded again taking off his cloak and giving it to Seto, before guiding Christine and Ryou off stage.

"You're going to need it" Erik muttered. Seto nodded.

Serenity looked at Ryou; he looked back at her and nodded at Seto.

She nodded silently. "Sit down" Seto whispered, pinning the cloak around his shoulders.

The lights dimmed again. Waiting for the signal, Seto took a deep breath and began to sing.

Nighttime sharpens

Heightens each sensation

Darkness stirs, and wakes imagination

Silently the senses abandon their defenses

The piano continued to play the rest of the verse, Seto walked over to where Serenity was sitting and waited for his cue.

Despite what everyone thought, Seto started right on time. Gently he took Serenity's hand and led her up from the chair.

Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendor

Grasp it, sense it tremulous and tender

Norin looked from Ryou to Seto to Serenity and back to his brother again and smirked quietly.

Though Ryou Stevens seemed calm, cool and collected,

Norin knew that his twin brother was struggling with the inherited Irish fury inside of him... in other words, Ryou was pissed.

/Calm down, Ryou, it's not as bad as it looks/

/What do ye mean it's not as bad as it looks/ Ryou yelled back at him in Gaelic through their 'mind link' /The lad's clearly flirten' with her in front of me face/

Erik, like Norin noticed the boy's state of unnerving calmness. Oh dear he thought We'd better not work on the cemetery scene just yet, or else the other boy's head will be chopped off!

Ryou took a deep breath and looked on.

Turn your face away from the garish light of day

Turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light,

Seto took the chance at glaring at Ryou, snickering under his breath. Ryou rolled his eyes.

And listen to the Music of the Night

Several girls pretended to swoon in the audience, Seto was indeed a good singer.

Yugi, Rebecca, and the others, however, noticed that Serenity was looking nervous.

Joey growled slightly and clenched his fist. Mai calmed him down.

"Calm down, Joey, Its not like he'll actually get the part, this is tryouts" she whispered.

Joey crossed his arms and muttered something under his breath to the extent of "and he said I'm a mutt"

Mai smiled. The rivalry between Joey and Seto had been going on since forever,

and it was mainly because Joey and his parents, and especially Serenity didn't want her dating Seto Kaiba,

but instead preferred gentle, quiet, Ryou Stevens, eldest son of the Gardner family.

His twin, Norin was also part of the family, a fact that Yami Mouto and Tea Gardner were not happy about.

"Don't worry" Mai continued. "Everybody knows that Kaiba's a pain in the butt" Joey tried his hardest not to laugh. Instead, he gave her a bear hug and kissed her forehead. She in turn leaned her head on his shoulder.

Seto led Serenity along the stage, cherishing the feeling of her soft hand, and continued.

Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams

Herd your thoughts from the life you knew before

Close your eyes, let your spirit start to so---------------------------------ar

Everyone was shocked as Seto actually hit the inhuman note. Serenity nervously closed her eyes.

Erik noticed that Christine was paying close attention to the girl.

"Is something wrong, love?" he whispered.

Christine nodded. "She is very, very nervous, I don't think it has anything to do with stage fright, though."

Erik nodded and looked at the girl. She did indeed look highly nervous, as if she was looking at the Phantom himself.

Hmm perhaps I shall talk with her after rehearsal.

And you'll live as you've never lived before

Serenity opened her eyes again. Seto smiled, taking her hand in his, placing it under his arm. He stopped her, putting his hands on her shoulders. Mouth close to her ear, he sang the next verse very softly.

Softly, deftly music shall caress you

Hear it, feel it, secretly posses you

Backing up, and looking into her doe brown eyes, he sang the next part louder. One of the girls in the audience did an anime fall.

Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind

In this darkness that you know you cannot fight

The darkness of the Music of the N------ight

Seto could feel his powers heating up, but he needed to harness them, he couldn't use them, not yet.

Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world

Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before

Let your soul take you where you long to... be-------------------------------e

Seto put his hands on her cheeks. From the audience, both Joey and Ryou started to growl. Erik and Norin held Ryou, while Tristan and Yami held Joey.

Only then, can you belong to me

Serenity felt herself calm down and relax. Somehow, she found Seto's voice soothing and calming her... almost as if she was being hypnotized.

Yes...sweetheart...now I have you right where I want you. Seto laughed evilly under his breath. Taking a deep breath, he got himself ready for the last verse.

Placing his hands on her shoulders, he sang softly into her ear.

Floating, falling, sweet intoxication

Seto massaged her shoulders and ran them down her arms. Serenity sighed. The girls in the audience (with the exception of Tea, Mai and Rebecca) all sighed dreamily.

Seto saw this and smirked. Then he slowly brought Serenity's hand to his left cheek.

Touch me, trust me, savor each sensation

Serenity looked into his eyes, and it was then that Seto knew that he needed her. This time he sang with desperation in his voice, leading her over to the mirror.

Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in----

Ms. Robinson blushed. Norin smirked.

To the power of the Music that I write

The power of the Music of the Ni----------------ght

Looking into the mirror... Serenity could see herself in a flowing wedding dress (A/N: haha), suddenly she fainted.

Ryou started to go towards them, but Erik held him back.

"Wait, lad... wait a moment"

Ryou calmed down, enough to see Joey behind him, having the same reaction, Yami and the others trying to hold him back.

Ryou shuddered at the look in Joey's eyes. It was mean.

Seto smirked softly as he picked her up in his arms, and lay her gently on the mattress on the floor.

He then took the cape off of his shoulders and put it around Serenity's 'sleeping' form.

He'd used his powers, all right. I told you I'd have my revenge some day. He thought. Seto prepared himself for the last line.

You alone can make my song take flight... help me make the Music of the Ni----------------------ght!

He stood up and everyone applauded. Norin, however, noticed that his twin had disappeared again, and that Serenity was gone.

"That's it then" Ms. Robinson said.

"It appears we have found our Phantom" Everyone (well mostly everyone), cheered.

"I think that we have found almost everyone except..." she checked her list. "Madame Giry, and Nadir Rahziem" Well done everyone, especially you, Seto"

Seto bowed, the cloak draping him. "Thank you" he smirked. Erik noticed that Norin Stevens was rolling his eyes. He decided to talk to the boy.

Sending Christine to fetch his cloak, he walked over to Norin. "So, what did you think of the performance?" Erik asked.

Norin smiled politely. "My brother and Chrissy did perfectly, Seto, however needs an attitude adjustment"

Erik laughed. "Chrissy?" he asked.

Norin nodded. "Serenity's full name is Serenity Christine Wheeler"

Erik raised an eyebrow. "Then she was born for the part"

Norin grinned and nodded. "She needs a little brushing up though,"

Erik agreed. "Have you seen the Broadway production?" he asked.

Norin nodded. "That's where Seto learned to sing the parts... you see, my brother and I and Chrissy all lived with the Kaiba's when we were little... due to some family difficulties"

Erik nodded.

"And I remember one instance where we were all sitting down watching the play and the next day, Seto took it literally. One time, when he sang Music of the Night, he actually locked Serenity in the mirror closet, and left her there until Ryou and I found her at supper time"

Erik's eyes widened. "how old where they?" he asked.

Norin growled at the memory. "he was 8 and she was only 6"

Erik covered his eyes. "that is low"

Norin giggled a little. "Yes it is... and for revenge, she by mistake, used her telekinetic powers, and hurled him into the fireplace"

Erik looked at Norin in disbelief. Norin nodded. "Problem was, there was actually a fire going... scorched his hair... and the right side of his face."

Erik tried not to smile, but he failed. "Has he had plastic surgery?"

Norin shook his head. "Not to my knowledge, no, and I don't see why not considering all that money his company makes."

Erik nodded. "If you'll excuse me I'm going to find my brother." Erik nodded. "We must leave as well"

Norin waved goodbye and went to find Ryou

Erik fetched Christine, who was currently in a conversation with Tea, Rebecca and Mai.

"... some others will be needed for Madame Giry and Nadir Rahziem, the Persian"

Tea was nodding her head, grinning mischievously at her boyfriend, Yami Mouto.

"I think I know some people" she said, winking at him.

Yami caught on quickly and grinned. "Yes, I think we do" he chuckled.

"So are you doing the play, or the book?" Christine asked. The teenagers shrugged.

"You know what would be cool?" Tea asked. They all turned to her. "is if we did a mixture of the two and put in a little twist, like Raoul/Meg, or Nadir/ M. Giry"

Christine nodded, noting that Yami was making a horrible face.

"You can't possibly..." Tea thought about it and blushed.

"Uh, sorry guys, wrong characters, but anyway... that could be cool, like the case of the missing Giry" they laughed.

After a while, everyone said goodbye and walked out of the auditorium. Kids were all over the place now.

Yugi and Rebecca caught up with Yami and Tea. "Hey, where are you guys going?" Yugi panted.

Tea smiled. "We're on a hunt for the other characters. You know, the other one she didn't mention was Gustave Daae"

Yami nodded. "You're right" he grinned. "Lets go see if our candidates are still in class"

Tea nodded. "Ok... hey Yugi... you guys comin?"

Yugi shook his head. "No, Little Missy here forgot that her Algebra test was tomorrow, so I volunteered to help."

Rebecca squealed and hugged him. "Oh, thank you, Yugi...mua!" she kissed his cheek so long that all three teens blushed.

"Yeah, well, don't get used to it. Shadi can only be so patient." Yugi said, still blushing after Rebecca's kiss.

Rebecca made a face. "He's mean! Last time I got a B-minus and I yelled and he just shrugged and said 'then I guess you better study, huh?' Grrr"

Tea, Yami and Yugi sweat dropped. "Calm down, Becca, Shadi's not all that bad, He's just..."

"Weird!" Rebecca yelled.

"Okay! Time to go!" Tea said quickly, heading over to the school building. Yami nodded. "Right behind you, love... see ya Yugi"

Yugi said goodbye to his brother and turned back to Rebecca.

"Shadi's not weird, Becca, he's an Egyptian, just like Tea and Yami and Norin... you've gotta be careful, or else he might fail you."

Rebecca scoffed. "Yeah right, it's not like he has 'mystical powers' or something." she wiggled her fingers over her head.

Yugi chuckled and sweat dropped again. "Uh, yeah, he kinda does, now come on, I'm not giving up until you can write me a dozen quadratic equations!" "Aww!" Rebecca moaned, as Yugi led her to the store.

Ishizu Ishtar sat at her desk grading History test papers. She looked up at hearing a knock at the door.

She placed her pen on her desk and walked to the door, telling her students to stay put.

"My Pharaoh, My Queen" she said, closing the door behind her and curtsying slightly.

Yami nodded sincerely, and Tea grinned. "We have some exciting news" she said. Ishizu raised an eyebrow.

"Really? What might that be?" she asked.

"Well we both, tried out for the school's production of Phantom of the Opera, " Tea started, putting a hand on Yami's arm, who in turn smiled back at her fondly.

Ishizu allowed herself a secret smile.

"and we got the parts of Meg Giry, and Phillipe Count De Changy"

Ishizu clapped her hands excitedly and hugged Tea. "Very good! Oh, I'm so happy for you both!" Tea smiled at Yami, who smiled back, nodding.

"Yeah, well apparently we're doing a cross between the book and the musical, so we're going to need someone to play Madame Giry and Nadir the Persian." Tea continued.

Ishizu looked confused. "Well, who did you have in mind?" the young Egyptian woman paled at the evil grin on the Queen's face. I regret asking that question already she thought.

"Oh, no one in particular...just you and..." Tea muttered a name under her breath.

Ishizu caught it and blushed. "You are not serious are you? I-I cant't just do that...I-I...H-he" while doing that, the History teacher shook her head furiously. "No, Tea I am sorry... I cannot"

"Is there something wrong between you?" Yami asked. Ishizu shook her head immediately. "No, of course not...it's just, well..." she sighed.

"Try asking him" Tea suggested. "Then if he says no, then we'll find someone else... I just thought it would be kinda cool..." she looked up at Ishizu with puppy dog eyes.

Ishizu rolled her eyes and took a deep breath. "Ok... fine, I'll ask him, but only because you two are my dearest friends, and also the rulers of Egypt, and could have my head if I didn't at least try"

"The thought never crossed my mind" Yami grinned, crossing his fingers behind his back. Ishizu folded her arms and raised an eyebrow. "My Pharaoh?" she said in a warning tone.

Yami put his head down. He should have known she would use the Millennium Necklace like that! Drat!

Tea giggled. "Ok, well, we gotta go... I have a Physics test on Friday so I gotta study."

Yami giggled and pointed at her "Hehehe"

Tea growled at him. "I wouldn't say a word if I were you, Your Majesty!"

Yami sweat dropped and coughed. "Ok, well bye Ishizu"

Ishizu grinned. "Farewell you two. Oh Tea, who are the main characters?"

Tea smiled mischieviously. "I'll tell you later" she mouthed. As the two rulers walked away, Ishizu looked at them with puzzled frustration.

She went back inside the classroom and looked at the clock. Seeing that it was 2:55 Ishizu dismissed the class.

"Remember, your reports on Cleopatra and Antony are due on next Friday, I want detailed descriptions on their lives, what they accomplished, what wars were started, why did they start, and how long did they last, and also what commandments they broke." Ishizu grinned.

The kids groaned. "You have a week to finish... Remember, single file line, and indoor voices." The buzzing quieted down.

"Sylvester Simmons, if you'll stay put please, I'd like to speak with you." Sy sat back down. "Have a good day everyone!" Ishizu called.

Most of the kids said bye back, but some didn't. After Ishizu was done getting her things together, she pulled out Sy's History test.

"Now, Sy, I'd like you to tell me how you got this grade" Ishizu said, placing the marked D- paper in front of him. "What! how the heck did I get a D-!"

Ishizu raised an eyebrow. "You tell me" she said.

Sy glared at her. "because you're an idiot" he growled.

Ishizu raised an eyebrow and pursed her lips. "Ok, Fair enough...but then again, how would I come up with 'Ulysses S Grant, led the Revolutionary War'? Come on, Sy, you know better than that, I know you do! Who led the Revolutionary War?"

Sy looked down at the empty desk, for Ishizu had taken away the paper. "George Washington?" he guessed.

Ishizu nodded her head. "Yes" she smiled, trying not to laugh.

"Now, if you need help, and you need someone to tutor you, I am always here or at my house. I am a teacher, Sylvester, I am hired to help and teach you, if you're getting stuck, then you need to tell me!"

Sy nodded, rolled his eyes, and slumped in his seat.

"How old are you?" he asked. "21" Ishizu answered. "Why?" Sy grinned. "My cousin's name is Keith...he's 20"

Ishizu looked surprised. "Keith? as in Bandit Kieth Howard?" Sy nodded.

No wonder the boy's mind is so messed up, having Keith as a roll model, Brr she shuddered mentally.

"I think he likes you" Sy said.

What in heaven's name did he just say! she screamed in her head. "Oh, well, that's nice" she smiled weakly. Then she sighed.

"Sy, all I'm trying to say is that I'm here if you need my help, Ok? Don't hesitate to ask if you need it. Alright?" She placed a hand on his shoulder.

Sy nodded and stood up. "Can I go now?" he asked.

Ishizu nodded. "Yes you may... just be careful... Mr. Rasaid may still be in class"

Sy nodded and turned toward the door. Suddenly he turned back. "Hey, Ms. Ishtar?"

Ishizu turned back to him. "Yes, Sy?" Sy smiled awkwardly. "Um, thanks... thanks allot."

Ishizu smiled. "You're welcome, Sy...See you tomorrow" Sy nodded. "Yeah, see ya"

Ishizu sighed as Sy walked out the door. Gathering her purse and her portfolio, she walked out of the classroom, and onto Shadi Rasaid's Algebra class. They had some things to discuss.

Shadi looked up at the clock and noticed it was 3:10. Uh-oh I was supposed to let out about 10 minutes ago...eh on second thought, I am the teacher, soo I let the kids stay another 10 minutes, so what?

But then he felt guilty. That was a little more on Bakura's league. Shadi sighed. He didn't notice that a young Egyptian beauty had stepped into the room.

"All right, class is dismissed. " Ow he thought as the sound of books slamming, rang in his ear. Then the girl made her way to the front of the room.

Several of the boys wolf whistled. Shadi glared at them and then realized that the young woman was none other than Ishizu Ishtar.

"Silence!" he yelled. The room was silent. Shadi nodded in satisfaction. "Thank you, now I suggest, that if you do not want to fail you History class, you leave Ms. Ishtar alone"

"I'll teach her " one of the boys muttered. the others laughed. Ishizu blushed furiously and realized that Shadi was grasping at straws to hold on to his temper.

"I'm going to kill him" Shadi muttered in Egyptian. "No!" Ishizu whispered. "You cannot, it is against the commandments!" Shadi was shaking. Ishizu could hear it in his voice.

"Do I not have the right to protect that which I care about?" Ishizu blushed and nodded. She then leaned over and kissed his cheek.

"Hush now, Shadi, all is well." the Egyptian male looked at her and blushed. Ishizu smiled and squeezed his hand. "I am ready to go when you are" she whispered.

Shadi nodded. Ishizu grabbed her things and walked outside. The girls had been let out, but Shadi had said he would like to speak to the 'young men' personally.

Pretty soon, Ishizu could hear Egyptian-English phrases all mixed into one. She'd never seen Shadi this furious! She suddenly stepped back into the room before Shadi could do something regrettable, like send them all to the Shadow Realm.

"Nai, habiba!"-1 She ran up to him, trying to calm him down.

He looked at her, his eyes, settling down, he relaxed his muscles "I am sorry" he whispered. She nodded. "I know" He then dismissed the boys, giving them their assignments.

As they each passed her, each and every boy gave Ishizu an apology. She nodded. Then Ishizu and Shadi gathered their things.

"Come on, dinner's on me" she smiled. Shadi grinned, squeezing her hand. They walked out the door and into the sunshine.


cq- O-O what's this? Shadi and Ishizu actually on a date?

Ryou and Serentiy- giggle

Ishizu-blushing It's not actually a date...er
