Yu-Gi-Oh! Shipping List - #1
Abandonshipping (Gozaburo x Noa x Mokuba) - "Abandoned"
Mokuba, 7 years old, allowed his eyes to wander the building around him with wonder, taking in every last detail with meticulous fascination. The large hand at the center of his small back, pushing him along, was largely ignored. Gozaburo had promised to introduce him to a special playmate today.
Mokuba was not stupid, in fact he was as sharp as a tack and twice as suspicious as an abused cat. He knew that going anywhere with this man whom he'd been forced to call "father" in public spelt disaster but he had been literally given no choice. Gozaburo had promised to double Seto's already intolerable study schedule should Mokuba refuse.
Mokuba dared not refuse.
Seto's strict regimen had already increased due to his big mouth. It had been four months ago that the tyrant had begun to touch him in ways that made his skin crawl and when he'd made to tell Seto, Gozaburo had been very cross. Not only had he interrupted the confession so that Seto, to this day did not know what was happening, but he had taken all of his fierce anger out on Seto. Mokuba would never let that happen again.
Gozaburo removed his hand from Mokuba's back, releasing him into an observation room of some kind. A child in the room, beyond a clear wall, looked up as they entered, taking interest in Mokuba immediately. Mokuba's observing eyes scanned the room for some explanation. Nearby two pods lay just out of view of the room. One was open, in the other, lay the boy inside the clear room. Mokuba's eyes widened.
"This is my son, Noa." Gozaburo introduced. "You two are so very alike I know you will be very happy together."
Fear set in.
"Unfortunately, Noa will never be able to live again … so you will stay here, to keep him company."
Mokuba tried to run but Gozaburo caught him around the waist, lifting him off of the ground effortlessly and carried him kicking and screaming, toward the unoccupied pod.
"Seto will never let you get away with this!" he screamed at the top of his lungs.
Gozaburo laughed, a cynical sadistic sound that chilled Mokuba's blood as much as the words that followed. "I will tell Seto that I have sent you to one of the best boarding schools in Europe. And he will never know. Eventually, he will receive sad word of your untimely death."
Mokuba screamed as the pod was slammed shut above him. His fists crashed harmlessly against the lid until the small area began to fill with gas and despite his efforts, sleep overtook him.
Mokuba awoke on a bed. He bolted up, for a moment believing it had all been a horrible dream - until he saw the boy, Noa, sitting next to him.
"Don't be afraid." Noa said to him, his voice puncturing the silence around them as if wounding it. "Father has already left."
"He left?!" Mokuba cried despairingly. Crawling hastily to the end of the bed, Mokbua scrambled off of the soft mattress and stumbled across the floor, crashing into the clear surface, beyond which lay only a darkened, abandoned room.
Mokuba cried out, hitting the wall with his fists as he sobbed and screamed for the man to return, to take him home, he would be good, he wouldn't complain anymore, but he was screaming to an empty room.
Noa crossed the room to him, pressing against him from behind and reached his hand forward, pressing his palm flat against the glassy surface. It shimmered beneath his touch and dissolved, becoming an endless field before them. Mokuba fell onto his hands and knees, the wind blowing his long black hair around his face and neck. His eyes widened and he trembled.
"Do you see now?" Noa asked, kneeling next to Mokuba and gently moving his hair out of his face for him. "We can do anything now, be anywhere in the world we want to be. We are all that matter now."
"We…don't exist?" Mokuba questioned, fearfully.
"The world doesn't exist." Noa answered, leaning forward to press his lips against Mokuba's.
Mokuba despaired. He had been abandoned, like Noa before him. He would never see Seto again.
"Father must love you." Noa commented in a soothing way. "I'm sorry. Father tires of everything he loves after a while."
Mokuba turned to the boy and clung to him, crying into his chest in broken sobs while Noa stoked his hair understandingly.
