Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds: The Obvious Answer
Disclaimer: I do not own Yu-Gi-Oh!, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, or Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds the characters of Rikuo and Erika Amero, is not mine, but the property of the Wolf General.
Author's Notes: Is it just me or has Yu-Gi-Oh! Gotten just a tad too ludicrous to be believable lately? I mean…a duel academy…ok…but dueling on motorcycles? Come on!!! You've got to be kidding me!
"So," Eri said calmly as she slumped back into the hammock that Davis had strung from too trees. She was exhausted. She'd spent the entire day working. Davis may only have been a human, but his job was a lot harder than she'd first guessed. Sammy slumped into the hammock nest to her friend.
"So," she said again. "What makes a duelist of your caliber—I mean one of the best in the world—quit at the top of your game anyway? I looked you up on the internet, you were good."
Davis sighed and slumped back into a lawn chair. Asriel stepped out of the trailer with lemonade and began handing it out to the girls and archeologists.
"I could say it was when Sammy was born," Davis answered. "But that wouldn't be entirely true, fair, or accurate. It was around then…but that wasn't it."
He sat up and looked Eri in the eyes.
"It was when people started dueling on motorcycles," he said very seriously. "I mean, can you imagine anything more stupid? Do you know how many fatalities there was that first year, alone? Over 300 people died in motorcycle accidents. Three Hundred! And they didn't stop…"
"Sammy?" Davis said. "Do you remember when you we eight years old and your mom was in the hospital for 2 months?"
Sammy nodded and Asriel winced.
"Honey, I don't think…" Asriel started to say.
"She actually accepted a challenge to one of those damn speed duels. Was watching her cards instead of the road and got hit by a semi-truck. I just about had a heart attack when I got the phone call."
"You wouldn't believe the lecture I got as soon as I was healed," Asriel said playfully as she sat in her husband's lap.
"It's not funny!" Davis protested. "You almost died!"
"But I didn't," she said. "He made me get rid of my duel runner. I suppose it was better for his peace of mind…but it sure was fun to ride."
"It was stupid."
"Idiotic," Davis said. "Who in their right mind would ever do something so brainless, who I ask you; who?"
There was a revving sound as Rikuo Amero Demon Wolf Lord pulled up to the dig site in a duel runner.
"Daddy!" Eri squealed leaping off the hammock and running to her father.
"Ask a stupid question…" Davis said rolling his eyes.
