Chapter Nine

Roland took over the arrangements for Mokuba's funeral. A Dr. Victoria Benson came and after examining Seto, prescribed a low dosage sedative for him, and she examined Tea and told her, "You really need to be extra careful during this trimester so that you don't lose your baby."

Roland called Juilliard, and spoke to Dean Peters, and said, "My name is Roland O'Brien and I'm the legal guardian of Seto and Mokuba Kaiba and I want to come over and get the rest of Mokuba's things."

Dean Peters told him, "I will personally take you to Mokuba's room and if it's alright I really would like to talk to you about something."

Roland said, "I'll be over around six this evening if that's alright and we can talk while I'm getting the rest of Mokuba's things."

When Seto came to, he felt somewhat light headed and Tea told him, "The doctor gave you a shot to help settle your nerves and she said that you might feel this way, but not to let it worry you."

Seto then asked, "Where's Roland?"

Tea told him, "Roland's gone over to Juilliard to get the rest of Mokie's things and Dean Peters wanted to talk to him about something."

Seto closed his eyes and he said, "Thank you for being here for me, I would have gone to pieces if it weren't for your love." Then he kissed Tea.

Tea smiled at him and she said, "Your welcome, he was my brother-in-law and so much more and I'm going to miss him terribly."

They held each other as they thought back on their memories of Mokuba.

When Roland got to Juilliard he went directly to the Dean's Office and Dean Peters held out his hand and he said, "All of us here want to give our condolences to you and Mr. & Mrs. Kaiba for your loss."

Roland shook the Dean's hand and he said, "Please thank everyone for all of us, Mokuba will be greatly miss by everyone."

Then Dean Peters took Roland to the room where Mokuba stayed at and as they walked inside you could still feel a slight presence of Mokuba still in that room.

Roland packed up everything and as he turned to leave, Dean Peters said, "Is there anyway that Mr. Kaiba will agree having a double funeral? I contacted Joseph's sister, she has just given birth three months ago to twins, and her doctor will not allow her to travel, so her husband is coming here.

Serenity, that's Joseph's sister and her husband are not financially able to have his body brought back to Tokyo so their making arrangements to have his body buried here near Juilliard. That's why I wanted to have a double funeral because there are so many students and faculty members who want to pay their respects to both Mokuba and Joseph."

As Dean Peters closed and locked the door, he turned to walk over to the car, and after Roland had put the last of Mokuba's things in the trunk, Roland said, "I will talk to Seto about this and if I know him he'll agree with what you've proposed. I'll call you in the morning and let you know for sure."

When Roland got back to the Hotel, he asked some help to get the things up to room #145. The man at the desk had three men go help Roland unload everything and they took it up to the room.

Roland thanked them for their help and he gave each of them a tip. When he closed the door, Tea came to see what was going on and she smiled as she saw Roland standing there.

"Seto has been asking me where you went, and I told him. Roland thank you for coming here and helping with all the arrangements, we couldn't have done it without you." Tea said.

Roland smiled and then he kissed her cheek and he said, "I need to talk to both you and Seto about something that Dean Peters talked to me about. Let's go into the other room."

When Roland and Tea walked into the room, Seto stood up, he walked over to them, and he said, "Thank you for being here for us." Roland held Seto in his arms and he said, "Hell son, where else would I be if not here when one of my sons needed me."

(Ever since the death of Gozaburo, Roland stood, up and took over the duties of raising both Seto and Mokuba. He actually went as far as becoming their legal guardian.)

Roland then said, "We need to talk about something, so let's go sit down. Dean Peters has asked if instead of having the funeral just for Mokuba could we have a double funeral for both Mokuba and Joseph.

The Dean told me that Joseph's sister has given birth to twins about three months ago and her doctor will not allow her to fly, so her husband is coming here for the funeral. Serenity, Joseph's sister also told the Dean that they can't afford to have Joseph's body brought back to Tokyo so they are making arrangements to have his body buried here near Juilliard."

Tea looked at Seto and then he said, "I know that is what Mokie would want so please let Dean Peters know that we will have both their funerals on the same day, but we'll need a bigger Church won't we?"

Roland was so damn proud of Seto and he went over and knelt down in front of him and he said, "Don't worry I'll make sure that we find the perfect Church, and Seto, I know that Mokie is smiling down from Heaven on you right now. You make me so proud."

So Roland contacted Dean Peters the next morning and he said, "Seto has agreed that we should have a double funeral, but we'll need a much bigger Church."

Dean Peters then said, "Ms. Periwinkle will probably know of a Church that we can use, I'll speak to her and then I can let you know."

Roland thanked him and then he hung up the phone, and he got out a tablet and started writing down all the things that he would need to do in order to have a nice service for his youngest son and Seto's brother.

They finally found the perfect Church to have the funerals held in, and he had all the arrangements made. Joseph's brother-in-law, Tristan finally got to New York and Ms. Periwinkle invited him to come stay at her home. When Tristan got there, Ms. Periwinkle showed Mr. Taylor all the things that were taken from the apartment that Joseph had and was stored in her back room.

As Tristan went through them, he only kept a few things that he knew that Serenity would want to keep and then he turned to Ms. Periwinkle and he asked her, "Can you find someone who would want the rest of his things?"

Roland went to the funeral home and arranged for the casket and what clothes that Seto wanted Mokuba to wear. Then he went to the Church and spoke to the Pastor Wilson and they arranged for the funeral to be in two days.

Roland then called Dean Peters and asked him, "Would you please ask Joseph's brother-in-law if they have made all the arrangements.

If not, please let him know that if he needs help that you will be willing to find him assistance, and then call me and I will make sure that no matter what the cost, Joseph will have a very nice service."

Today is the funeral of Mokuba James Kaiba and Joseph William Wheeler. It is being held at the Church of Love near the Campus of Juilliard where both Mokuba was a student and Joseph was a Professor.

Mokuba is survived by his brother Seto, sister-in-law Tea and by his and Seto's guardian Roland.

Joseph is survived by his sister Serenity, her husband Tristan and twin nephews.

As the guests began entering the Church, they each signed the book for both Mokuba and Joseph.

As the Pastor Wilson of the Church began the services, he said, "Let us bow our heads and pray:

Dear heavenly father, keep these two men in your loving hands until we are all reunited again. Amen."

Then the Pastor said, "The families have asked to say something about their loved ones that they just lost."

Roland walked up to the pulpit and he said, "My name is Roland and I've been the guardian of both Seto and Mokie since the death of their step-father. Mokuba has always loved music and when he approached his brother about coming here to Juilliard, well what could Seto say but yes, and he's never regretted ever telling his brother that."

Then Dean Peters came up and he said, "I've been asked to say a few words about Joseph by his sister. Joseph came here to Juilliard seven years ago, and he showed so much promise as an artist that when he graduated, he was asked to become a professor and to help other students who showed the same promise that he did. We have loved having Joseph as part of out family ever since."

Then Pastor Wilson said, "One of the students that knew Mokuba would like to sing one of his favorite songs, she will be joined by another student:

Brad Paisley (feat. Dolly Parton) "When I Get Where I'm Going"

When I get where I'm going
On the far side of the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly

I'm gonna land beside a lion
And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop of rain

Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here

I'm gonna walk with my grand daddy
And he'll match me step for step
And I'll tell him how I missed him
Every minute since he left
Then I'll hug his neck

Repeat chorus

So much pain and so much darkness
In this world we stumble through
All these questions I can't answer
So much work to do

But when I get where I'm going
And I see my maker's face
I'll stand forever in the light
Of his amazing grace
Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will love and have no fear
When I get where I'm going
Yeah when I get where I'm going

When the song was over, the men came up front and helped carry the two caskets to the waiting Hearse and then the family and guests filed out of the Church.

As they, family got into the limos and the guest into their own cars they drove to the Cemetery where they two Caskets were to be lowered into the ground.

( If you looked close enough you could see two angels standing there smiling at their families and friends as they took each others hands and walked up to heaven.)

When the services were over, everyone came up to Seto, Tea, Roland and Tristan and said they were sorry for their loss. Then Tristan got into the limo and headed back to the airport to get on the plane to fly home.

Roland, Seto and Tea got into their limo and went back to the Hotel, where Seto said, "I can't go back to Domino."

Tea then said, "Why don't we stay here for a few days until you can figure out what you want to do?"

Seto said, "First of all I want to get rid of Kaiba Corp. and start somewhere else. Maybe we can live here in New York."

Tea smiled at her husband and she said, "I'll live wherever you want to."

Roland then said, "I'll make all the arrangements to sell Kaiba Corp., I know that Maximillion will give you a good price for it."

Seto told him, "Please will you take care of it."

So that's why Seto sold Kaiba Corp. and so he and Tea began their lives here in New York. Roland stayed here too and so Seto and Roland began a new business. That business was to help students who had the potential for entering Juilliard but didn't have the money too.

Tea had a baby boy and they named him, "James Douglas Kaiba."

Mokuba was there standing beside them as his nephew was born. The baby smiled at someone who was in the room, but no one ever saw it.
