Seto Kaiba's Sister: part 5: Yugi vs Weevil part 2

Tea, Joey and Tristan congratulate Yugi on wiping out Weevil's monsters.

'The duel's not over yet. I'm sure Weevil's got more than one plan up his sleeve.' I think to myself.

"Ha. Yugi doesn't have a chance against the Regional Champion." A familiar annoying voice rings out.

We turn and Mai's stood behind us. "Weevil's got moves your little shrimp couldn't even dream of."

I can now tell that Tea is getting pretty steamed with Mai, and to tell you the truth, so am I. "Look! Nobody asked you so why don't you just take a hike!"

Mai strides past her. "And miss the chance to see a champ like Weevil turn this around no way."

Joey agrees with Mai. "Weevil really came from behind to win the Regionals."

Tristan nods. "Weevil's pretty tough and sneaky."

"Whose side are you on anyway!" Tea asks sounding angry.

"I'm just saying. This is Yugi's first official duel and he's fighting a champ."

Mai just chuckles.

Weevil tells Yugi "I still have plenty of tricks up my sleeve."

To which Yugi replies, "You've done a lot of buzzing throughout the duel, but I'm still waiting for the sting."

"Since you're new to this tournament thing, I'll make things easy for you." Weevil says while picking a card, "This little bug won't stand a chance against all your powerful monsters, oh well. I'll put it into defence mode."

Yugi won't bite, knowing Weevil's got a trap card waiting that can destroy his monsters as soon as they attack. Instead, Yugi plays the magic card, Monster Recovery, which recalls all his monsters to his deck.

Yugi draws a new hand, then summons Kuriboh (300 ATK) and attacks with it, knowing he won't lose much when the weak monster is destroyed.

Weevil's trap, Parasite Worm, is activated, destroying Kuriboh, and lowering Yugi's life points to 1050.

Yugi smiles, telling Weevil that trap cards only work when they catch you by surprise. He tells Weevil not to give his plan away next time.

But Weevil laughs, saying, "I don't give a bee's behind about that stupid trap! It was only a trick to get you to recall your monsters, so I could safely play Larvae Moth." Which he flips up into attack mode. The Larvae Moth is weak by itself, but then Weevil plays the Cocoon of Evolution (2000 DEF), which he equips onto the Larvae Moth. We all watch in disgust as the Larvae Moth squelches around, becoming encased in the cocoon.

Weevil says that in five turns, his Larvae Moth will undergo a startling transformation, becoming the Ultimate Great Moth!

Yugi says "I'll crack the Cocoon before that happens."

But Weevil points out that the Cocoon of Evolution gains a field power bonus from the wilderness, raising its defence to 2600 points. In just five turns, his Great Moth will fully evolve and finish Yugi off.

Yugi plays Gaia the Fierce Knight (2300 ATK) and attacks, but it's too weak to destroy the Cocoon of Evolution, and Yugi's life points go down to 750.

"That's one turn down," Weevil says. "You know that my Cocoon will be tough to crack!"

Joey tells Yugi to hang tough, but Mai laughs, "All that stupid cheer leading you're doing makes it sound like Yugi still has a chance."

Steaming, Tea insists that of course he does! Joey holds Tea back, telling her not to listen to Mai, but Mai says "Every duellist who's ever gone up against Weevil's Cocoon has been totally trashed."

Tea protests "But Yugi's got us to help him beat it."

Mai laughed. "With you dorks cheering him on I doubt that he'll last another 5 minutes."

I just growl inwardly. 'Come on Pharaoh, teach this girl a lesson. Show us all that you are able to win this duel.....I believe in you.' I think to myself as I watch the Pharaoh.

Yugi knows he has to come up with something quick, or he'll not only lose the duel, he'll lose his only chance to save his Grandpa. He has to win!

Weevil draws, telling Yugi he only has four more turns before the Great Moth emerges.

Yugi draws and places a card face down in defence.

Weevil draws, saying nothing will save Yugi once his moth is out.

Then Yugi draws again, thinking he has to find a way to turn this duel around. There must be some way to pop that thing open!

Tea tells Yugi to hang in there, and Joey says Yugi has to win for his Grandpa. Yugi says he knows, and Joey tells him he's got to get fired up! Yugi suddenly gets an idea.

Mai is disdainful of their cheering, telling us we're only distracting Yugi from the game.

Tea asks "how would you know? I'd bet no one's ever cared enough to cheer you on."

Mai says, "friends haven't helped Yugi any, he's losing."

I start to get mad at Mai as I turn to her and finally speak. "Look Mai! Do us all a favour and shut the hell up! Just because Yugi actually has friends doesn't mean that you can be all negative about Yugi! So back off and shut up cause Yugi's going to win."

"Sophia!" I hear the Pharaoh say.

I turn and he gives me and the others the thumbs-up. But Mai is startled, and Tea makes faces at Mai, saying, "Well from the look on Yugi's face, we just did help him. So there."

I smile. 'Good going Pharaoh. Now squash that overgrown bug.'

Yugi summons Curse of Dragon (2000 ATK), and then combines it with the magic card, Burning Land, and attacks. But his attack isn't against the Cocoon—Curse of Dragon's flames destroy the forest, eliminating Weevil's field power bonus, and reducing the Cocoon of Evolution's defense points back to its original 2000. Now Yugi can attack and destroy it with Gaia the Fierce Knight.

We all cheer. But Weevil laughs, and we hear sounds from the Cocoon.

We all watch in astonishment as a creature emerges. Joey realizes that it must have evolved enough to survive, and Mai says "I told you Weevil was good.

Weevil says Yugi wasn't able to stop the evolution of Weevil's ultimate insect, the Great Moth (2600 ATK)! Even though Yugi stopped its evolution one turn early, the Great Moth is still strong enough to beat him. "I'll find a way to squash that oversized bug." Yugi says.

Weevil orders his Great Moth to take flight, thinking that Yugi's dragon is no match for the Moth, and none of Yugi's land monsters can attack it in the air. Which one should he destroy first? He tells Yugi it's high time his Knight pays for demolishing Weevil's Cocoon.

Weevil prepares to attack, and Yugi plays a magic card. Weevil attacks and destroys Yugi's face-down Beaver Warrior.

The Great Moth's attack continues, enveloping Gaia the Fierce Knight in its vapours.

Weevil tells Yugi his Knight will be totally blown away!

Yugi smiles, holding up the Polymerization card, and telling Weevil, "You were so busy fawning over your Moth, you didn't notice that I played it." Yugi explains that if he has two compatible monsters on the field, he can use Polymerization to fuse them into one ultimate creature. Curse of Dragon has joined with Gaia the Fierce Knight to create Gaia the Dragon Champion. Its attack is 2600, the same as the Great Moth.

But Weevil tells Yugi to look again—the Dragon Knight is losing attack points. Weevil explains that the Great Moth's attack has left poison particles in the air which erode the Dragon Knight's attack.

Yugi watches as his Dragon Knight's attack decreases, knowing he's in trouble, and there's nothing in his hand that can help him. But he knows his Grandpa's deck won't let him down. He draws the magic card, Makiu the Magical Mist, and uses it to wash the poison away.

'I saved my Knight,' Yugi thinks, 'but that's not all I did.'

Weevil attacks with the Great Moth and destroys the weakened Dragon Knight, lowering Yugi's life points to 50.

It looks bad, but Joey tells Yugi to keep fighting.

Mai says they're all delusional, but Tea says Joey's right. "Yugi never gives up, and we never give up on him."

Mai says "Yugi's lost his best monster combo, and he's down to 50 life points, he can't win, so you might as well stop yapping."

Tea tells her to get lost, but Joey tells Tea to just ignore her, Yugi's in trouble.

But what can we do? Tea says she wishes we could trade Mai for life points.

But Mai says, "I told you all along Yugi never had a chance of winning. He wastes too much listening to you losers, while Weevil keeps his mind on the game."

I then smile as I look at Yugi. "Then why didn't Weevil see this coming?"

"Huh see what coming Sophia?" Tristan asks as everyone looks to me.

I look at them with a smile. "Check out Yugi's face."

They do. "He's smiling?"

We all watch in astonishment as Yugi begins to laugh, saying, "I'll win this duel because I play with honour, and that makes all the difference." He plays Summoned Skull (2500 ATK), telling Weevil that his Moth won't withstand his next attack.

Weevil thinks Yugi's losing it. Summoned Skull is strong, but the Great Moth is still stronger.

But Yugi points out that his Magical Mist is still dampening the field, and the Great Moth is soaked, while Summoned Skull attacks with electricity. The water boosts Summoned Skull's attack by 1000 points, raising it to 3500. Yugi attacks, and the Great Moth is destroyed, wiping out the rest of Weevil's life points.

We cheer Yugi's win, while Mai stands with her mouth open. "Impressive," she says. "I didn't think Yugi could ever beat Weevil."

I smile as I watch the Pharaoh. 'That's the way to do it.'

Yugi stands over a snivelling Weevil, telling him he won his duels by lying and cheating, but a true champion plays with honour. He takes Weevil's Star Chips, and Joey relieves him of his dueling glove. Yugi has three Star Chips now. But he still needs seven more to gain entry into the castle, where his grandfather is being held prisoner, and he'll battle Pegasus once and for all!

And thats the end of Yugi's duel with Weevil. hope you enjoyed it and yes this is when Sophia starts falling for the Pharaoh. But that love will soon develop. please rate and review for more.
