As he walked around Domino, Joey was wondering what he was doing, why was he out here walking around at midnight. He didn't know why, only that if he didn't get the hell out of there when he did, he just might have killed him.
While he was walking, Joey was thinking about the fight that and what lead up to the confrontation between himself and Seto. It all started when Kaiba came home late yet again, but this time he had someone with him. Why did he feel like this, well here's why.
Joey had been waiting up to talk to him about their relationship, when Seto came in with him. When Joey asked him about it, Seto just looked at him and said, "I guess it's about time for a change, so why don't you go upstairs and leave us alone."
Joey wanted to say something, but as he watched them sit on the couch kissing, he just ran upstairs and packed his things, the only things he brought with him when he moved in four months ago and he walked back downstairs and out the front door, not knowing where he was going.
So now as he's walking not knowing where to go, he ended up in the park sitting on a bench looking up at the star lit sky and tears running down his face, he didn't even bother wiping them away. Then he closed his eyes, lie down on the bench using his bag as a pillow and fell asleep.
As they were walking home from another drunken night, Bakura and Marik staggered through the park and as they walked up to the bench where Joey was lying on, Marik said, "Isn't that Wheeler?"
Bakura looked at his drinking partner and said, "I guess nothing gets past you does it."
Marik growled at Bakura, the noise woke Joey who sat up, and when he saw where the noise was coming from, he froze afraid to say a word. Bakura then said, "Why are you out here, where's Kaiba?"
Joey closed his eyes and then he said, "Don't know, don't care."
Marik looked at Bakura and then he said, "I guess the lovers had a little quarrel and he threw Wheeler out, what are you going to do now?"
Bakura wanted to knock the hell out of the tomb keeper for being such an asshole but instead he said, "Let's go Wheeler, you're coming home with me, Ryou would kill me if I left you out here alone."
Joey didn't know what to do, the only thing that he did know, he didn't want to be out here so he said, "Alright, but just for tonight, I'll figure out something in the morning."
Bakura and Marik started walking off, and as Joey picked up his bag, he followed them and as they walked down the street, Joey thought to himself, "At least someone cares what happens to me, even if doesn't mean a lot to them it means the world to me."
As Bakura opened the door and they walked in, Ryou looked up from the game of cards he and Malik were playing and he saw Joey, Ryou asked, "Joey, what's wrong?"
Bakura then said, "Joey's staying here for a few days, I'll explain why later."
Ryou got up and he said to Joey, "Come with me and I'll show you where you can sleep."
As he opened he spare bedroom door and they walked in, Joey said, "Thanks for letting me stay, I'll be gone by morning."
Ryou looked at him and he said, "Listen, you can stay here as long as you want."
Joey sat down on the bed and as he looked down at his hands, he said, "Seto's found someone else and let's just say that he flaunted that bastard right in front of me as if I didn't mean a damn thing to him anymore, so I packed my things and got the hell out of there."
Ryou went over and sat down next to Joey and he said, "Listen why don't you get some sleep and we can talk about this in the morning."
As Ryou walked out of the room, he wanted to find Seto and kill him for what he did to Joey, then he walked back to the living room and said, "Malik I think that you and Marik needs to leave, Bakura and I have some things to talk about."
Malik stood up and grabbed hold of Marik's hand and they left, then Ryou turned to Bakura and he said, "Kaiba's cheating on Joey and he brought the one he's seeing home tonight and they started making out right in front of Joey as if he wasn't even there. Joey's staying here until he's ready to move on."
Bakura sat there listening to what Ryou was saying and he was getting really angry and all he wanted to do was cause that son-of-a-bitch a lot of pain, but then Ryou said, "We have to let Joey deal with this in his own way, so promise me that you won't do anything to Kaiba, not just yet."
Bakura looked at Ryou and said, "Alright, but if that bastard comes looking for Wheeler, I can't say that I won't do something to make him wish he'd stayed away." Ryou knew that Bakura was a man of his word, and he hoped that Seto never came around here.
Seto and Alister walked up the stairs to his room and as he opened he door he noticed that Joey was gone and so were his things, but all he did was close the door and he pulled Alister into his arms and they fell upon the bed and started making love.
Alister said, "Where's Joey?"
Seto said, "I don't care as long as he doesn't get in our way, he can disappear as far as I'm concern."
Mokuba woke up and he went to get some milk when he noticed his brother and someone new walking down the hall towards his room, Mokie didn't know what was going on, but it was Seto's business, so he went to the kitchen got some milk and went back upstairs to his room and went back to sleep.
Ryou called Malik and said, "Joey's going to be staying here with us for awhile, I'll explain why tomorrow, please don't tell anyone that he's here."
As Malik listened to what Ryou was saying, he was angry that his friend was hurting and he told Ryou, "I promise and I'll make sure that Marik doesn't try to do anything to Kaiba, at least right now."
Ryou thanked Malik, then he hung up and he went to talk to Bakura and see what they could do.
