As Seto looked out his bedroom window, he watched Roland with his brother and sister-in-law and their children playing and even Mokie was there, Seto closed his eyes and wondered if he would ever be that happy?
Did he even have it in himself to be able to show another person love? A tear rolled down his face as he stood there. He wiped the tear away and went to sit behind his desk and turned on his Computer and started doing figures again.
All of a sudden there was a terrible racket from the front of the house and as he ran down the stairs to find out what it was, he got quiet a shock; sitting on a Chopper was Joey Wheeler. "Hey Kaiba," Joey yelled over the loud bike.
Joey turned it off and as he got off the bike and walked towards Seto, Seto got a very weird feeling deep inside and started to sweat. "Wheeler, what are you doing here?" Seto asked Joey.
"I came to see an old friend." Joey said, got anything cold to drink?" Joey said. Joey walked right past Seto and into the house as if he owned it.
Seto stood there watching Joey disappear into the house and he swallowed the lump in his throat, and he felt as if someone had slammed into him and knocked the air out of him. Seto followed Joey into the Kitchen and found him sitting and talking to Marie.
"Come on and have something to drink with me," Joey said.
Seto stood there and then he said "This is my house, what the hell are you doing here?"
Joey just smiled at him and that made Seto all the more curious to find out what was going on. "Alright, if I ask nice will you tell me?" Seto asked.
"I just got back to Domino and I decided to see my old friends" Joey said. Joey knew that it wouldn't be enough for Seto and then he told him the real reason he was here.
"I lost my sister last month to Cancer and I couldn't stand being in America anymore and I found that I needed to be near my old friends." Joey said.
Seto had known about Serenity's death and he wanted to let Joey know how sorry he was, but he didn't know where Joey was.
Just then Mokuba walked into the kitchen and when he saw Joey he squealed and ran and threw himself into Joey's arms.
"It's good to see you again, how long are you going to stay?" Mokie said.
Joey looked at Seto and he said, "Well that all depends if I'm asked to stay, then I guess I will."
Seto closed his eyes and then he said, "I guess if Mokuba wants you to stay then it's alright with me."
Joey laughed and he went over to Seto and he kissed him on the lips and whispered, "I like you too moneybags."
Then Joey went outside and got his stuff off this bike and walked back inside and said, "Well which room do I get?"
Mokie jumped up and down and Seto said with a smile, "If you don't stop you're going to jump high enough to hit the ceiling."
Then he went out to find Joey standing by the stairs, he said, "Follow me, I'll show you which room you can use."
Seto and Joey walked up the stairs and Seto opened the door to one of the rooms and he said, "You can use this one, it has its own bathroom and there's plenty of towels and personal hygiene items for you to use."
Joey went into the room and he couldn't believe how large it was. Then he turned to Seto and he said, "Thanks for letting me stay, I didn't know if I would be welcome back here."
Seto went over to Joey and he said, "Pup, you know that you'll always be welcome here, even if we didn't make it, we can still be friends."
Tears filled Joey's eyes as he hugged Seto and then he said, "Thanks again."
Seto moved back to the door and as he started to close it, he heard Joey say, "Maybe it'll be different this time."
After closing the door, Seto wiped the tears from his face and went back downstairs to inform Greta that they'd be having a guest staying with them.
Joey started putting his things in the closet and the drawers, when he came upon a picture of Serenity and as his tears fell on the picture Joey said, "Sis, I love you, why did you have to die?"
Joey then lay down on the bed, and held the picture to his chest and he fell asleep as tears fell on the pillow.
Suddenly, there beside the bed was the spirit of Serenity and she smiled and touched the side of Joey's face and she whispered, "I promise that this time will be better for you and Seto."
