Chapter 1 – The Return
22 year old Yugi was walking home from work. He'd finished his uni classes last year which were art. Yugi was taking a break for a year from them and was still working at the underground club he had been working at for the last few years. He had also upped his work there and was now a dancer there. Though he didn't do strip dancing he did pole dancing and just general dancing. Though his friends, Ryou, Seto, Malik, Marik and Bakura didn't know of it. He still went ahead with it. It was only going to be for the rest of the year before he started his art work.
Yugi arrived the game shop that he lived at with his grandfather. He didn't want to move into an apartment. His grandfather was getting very old now and if something happened now no one would be there to help him. So Yugi stayed and helped pay the bills, re-stoke the store shelves and just other general things around the place.
Yugi unlocked to front door and closed it again and locked it behind him. He took off his shoes and left them at the front door. He saw the light was on in the kitchen and walked over. He didn't understand why his grandfather would be up this late. It was just passed midnight and normally he would be in a coma by now. (A/N: Figure of speak. Meaning for those who don't know, he would be in a deep sleep.) Yugi walked through and found his grandfather facing him on the other side of the table with a man who had his back to him and were talking. The man's hair looked strangely familiar to him, but he couldn't remember where. It looked exactly like his from the back but was taller than his.
"I see. So you blocked his memories of you till it was safe to come back." He heard his grandfather saw to the man.
"Yes Sugoroku. Though I can't keep to what I said to him before I left. He is in worse danger now than he was with me. He walks home in the dark, past midnight. I have been in so many fights with others just to save him." The man said bowing his head, looking at the mug that was in his hand.
"Don't be hard on yourself. You have done a wonderful job these last two years."
"Yes, but the next question arises." Sugoroku gave a confused look. "Will he be able to forgive me? He told me a while back just as we got together if I would love him for a few days and then leave just to return later to hurt him. Sugoroku I did just that. I left him and now I have returned though not to hurt him."
"I'm sure if you explain why he will understand. Yugi is very understanding."
"What is going on here?" Yugi said angrily, he didn't like being talked about behind his back.
He startled his grandfather and made the man talking to him stiffen. Yugi walked further in the kitchen and the man stood slowly from his chair but didn't turn around just yet.
"It's nice to hear your voice Yugi." A deep baritone voice said and Yugi guessed it was the man's.
"Ji-chan why are you and this man talking about me behind my back? I don't even understand a word you or he just talked about."
"Yugi I think you need to hear what he has to say." Sugoroku said.
"Yugi do you remember anything from about 2 years ago. You were attacked by a robber, you had to go to hospital, and you were then kept in a hidden underground prison..." the man said. "Do you remember any of that?"
"I vaguely remember the robber and the hospital, but what..."
"Do you remember anything about who saved you from the robber?"
"No, but answer my question. Who are you and how do you know so much about that?" Yugi said angrily.
"I'm sorry for the pain that remembering will cause Yugi." The man said.
Yugi frowned as the man turned around. As soon as he did he saw the man's face and gasped. Not in remembrance but in pain. Yugi gripped his head and fell to his knees. His head was pounding, it hurt so much. Yugi saw someone kneel down in front of him and felt an arm wrap around his shoulders. Yugi screamed as the pain increased before he fainted.
Yami turned around to face him. He heard Yugi gasp and knew it wasn't in surprise but of pain. He watched as Yugi gripped his head and fell to his knees. He quickly ran over and knelt down next to him and wrapped his arms around him. He watched helplessly as Yugi screams of pain increased before he fainted in his arms. He held Yugi close and kissed him lightly on the forehead. Yami stood and turned to Sugoroku.
"I'll take him upstairs. He should have his full memory back in the morning."
"Why did my grandson faint?"
"His memories were floating to the surface thus causing him to scream and his head hurt. It got to the point where there was so much coming back he just fainted."
"Oh ok. I guess we should all get some rest. I'll see you in the morning." Sugoroku said and headed to the front of the shop to make sure everything was locked.
Yami looked down at Yugi was in him arms. He smiled and headed upstairs. He walked into Yugi's room and laid him down on his bed gently. He removed his socks before removing the jacket and jeans he was wearing, thanking the gods that he had boxers on. Not that he didn't want to see him, but it wouldn't be good if Yugi woke up naked in the morning. Yami sighed and removed his owns shoes, socks, jacket and pants, he too had boxers on. Yami then climbed into bed with Yugi and held him close. Arms wrapped securely around Yugi's waist. Yami watched Yugi till he fell asleep.
Yugi woke the next morning to find himself in his own bed with someone's arms wrapped around him. Yugi remembered seeing a man in the house when he got home and then pain in his head. He then realised that it was Yami and that all his memorise of him had come back. Yugi felt a stab to his heart when he remembered the last time they saw each other before Yami erased the memories of him. But Yugi's anger for what he did took over.
Yugi grabbed the arms that were wrapped around his waist and pulled them away and leapt out of bed. But as he tried the arms instantly latched on to his arms and pulled him back down. Yami rolled over and straddled Yugi's hips. Yugi was struggling to get his arms free but Yami didn't give. He soon gave up and just glared at him. Yami looked down at Yugi with sadness in his eyes.
"It's nice to see you again." He said softly.
"Unfortunately it's not the same for me. Let me go." Yugi growled.
"No you're just going to run. Can you just listen to what I have to say?"
"No and I don't care."
"You know I didn't want to do it Yugi. It hurt me so much that I couldn't just come out and say hi when I was keeping an eye on you."
"I don't love you anymore." Yugi growled angrily at him.
It hit Yami like a tonne of bricks. He slowly climbed off Yugi and moved away. Yugi instantly once he was free scurried away. Yami just stared at him with hurt in his eyes. Yami moved back towards the door and opened it.
"Please tell me you don't mean that."
"I don't love you." He growled at him again.
Yami closed his eyes for a minute to keep tears locked in before opening them. "I'll leave now. Just know that I...I still love you."
Yami disappeared through the door. He headed downstairs and out to the shop. He saw Sugoroku and said goodbye.
"Yami what's going on?"
"I'm leaving. I doubt you'll see me again."
"What do you mean? What about..."
"He doesn't want to see me and he doesn't...doesn't love me anymore. So there is no point in staying."
"What about the enemy you told me about? He could come after him."
"If he does I will know. I'll help him but Yugi doesn't want to know or care about what I had to say."
Tears were slowly falling down his face now and he said one last goodbye to Sugoroku and teleported back to his palace. Sugoroku was quite upset at what his grandson had done and made his way up to his room.
Yugi sat on his bed knees to his chest and arms wrapped around them running through everything in his head. It didn't take long to run through all the memories and he had just finished at the end. He burst out into tears remembering what and why Yami did what he did. He felt so bad about it. He went to stand up and see if he was still downstairs in the shop when his grandfather came through the door.
"Is he still here Ji-chan?"
"No he left in tears Yugi. I'm very, very disappointed in you Yugi. You should have listened to him. Do you know why he came back; do you remember why he did it?"
"No I don't why he came back but I remember why he did it." Yugi said and he fell to his knees in tears and cried. "I'm sorry, I'm sorry Yami. Please come back. I'm sorry."
Sugoroku looked down sadly at his grandson. He walked over and knelt beside him and wrapped his arms around him. Yugi buried his face in his shoulder and cried. Yugi cried till he couldn't anymore and his grandfather helped back into bed and Yugi fell asleep.
