"Jack." said the dark and demanding voice of Aki Izayoi simply. Jack didn't bother to look up from his deck, which he had laid out on the table in front of him to examine.

"What do you want?" grumbled Jack.


"Go find it somewhere else. Like from Yusei. Whatever advice you want, I can assure you that Yusei will provide you with better suggestions than I can."

"I can't."


"Because I need advice on Yusei." said Aki in a matter-of-fact tone. Jack paused and sighed before finally looking up at Aki.

"Does this have anything to do with you being head-over-heels in love with him? Because if it does, then I really can't help you." said Jack plainly. Aki flinched slightly at Jack's description of her feelings for Yusei, but decided to not to comment on it.

"...It does, but I'm more looking for whether it would be wise to tell him how I feel about him or just to forget about it completely." said Aki after a moment.

"And why are you asking me this?" asked Jack in annoyance, starting to tap his fingers on the table; clearly irritated that Aki was wasting his precious time to rearrange his deck.

"Because you're Yusei's friend. And if he returned any of my feelings, he would tell you about it." explained Aki.

"Yusei and I are hardly friends. Go ask Crow."

"Crow," began Aki, contemplating what she was going to say next ", Is an idiot. He would not be able to tell me anything about Yusei's romantic interests."

"Good point. Go ask Mikage. She's much smarter than Crow, and romance is probably more of her specialty than mine or Crow's."

"True, but I highly doubt Yusei would confess anything to Mikage."

"Then I guess you're out of luck." said Jack flatly, returning to his cards. Aki narrowed her eyes and put her hands on her hips, tapping her foot impatiently. After a moment, a sly smile came to her lips.

"Well, then I guess when the time comes that you finally admit that you're head-over-heels in love with Mikage, I won't give you any advice on what to do either." said Aki, making sure to emphasize the phrase 'head-over-heels', purely just to spite him. Jack cast his gaze up at Aki warily.

"I don't have any feelings for Mikage." grunted Jack.

" Is that so? What a shame. But she is such a pretty little thing, that I wouldn't be surprised if you did end up falling for her. It's only natural. So you'll be stumbling over yourself, wondering what to do, and making a complete fool out of yourself. But I won't help you, because you won't help me. Thus, you'll be doomed to live this life living with nothing but cats," said Aki, her expression growing more playful as she spoke ", Which is sad, because there are things I could tell you about her that could really help you win her heart."

There was a flicker of curiousity in Jack's eyes.

"Like what?" he said cautiously.

"Sorry, can't say. I already said that I won't tell you anything about her since you refuse to help me." said Aki, knowing that her plan was working. Jack's mouth twitched. The stubborn side of him wanted to continue to withhold the information on Yusei that Aki desired, yet, the curious side of him really wanted to know what she had to say about Mikage.

"Fine," said Jack, giving in to the latter ", I'll tell you this: He talk about you a lot. Aki-this, Aki-that. It's like you're the center of his existence."

Aki smirked and flipped some of her hair behind her shoulder.

"Finally, you talk. You know, you could have told me that five minutes ago and I would've left you alone."

"Hm." mumbled Jack. Aki then turned way, about to leave, but she stopped herself and faced Jack again.

"Oh, I almost forgot: Mikage talks about you a lot, too. Jack-this, Jack-that. It's like your the center of her existence." said Aki, mimicking Jack. Jack rolled his eyes, trying to ignore her mockery; yet, he couldn't help but smile at her words.

Comments: Yeah, it kind of bashes Crow; but it's not me. I actually love Crow, but let's face it, he would be complete moron when it comes to romance. Also, you can expect more Aki-Jack banter in future themes. And before anyone asks/complains, all th themes will, more or less, be this length. Plus, there'll be about 12 themes that are both Mijack and Yuaki (including this one), 19 themes that are just Yuaki, and 19 themes that are just MiJack. They'll all be labeled as such. 'Till then, please review!
