Here's the new story.
Note: Yugi won't show up for a while, but he will be in the story. He'll come in much later. Puzzleshipping won't be until later, too.
Also, Aknankanon is the Pharaoh of Egypt, but it is modernized. Everything that is in the present day technology wise is there. It's the present day, just with rulers.
Aknaudin will be in this, but he will be a good guy.

Chapter 1- Arranged Marriages
Aknankanon looked at the documents that he had been given as well as the ones that he had just written out. He let out a sigh. "Atemu, Bakura, Marik, and Seto are not going to like this one bit." Aknankanon said.
Aknankanon was the Pharaoh of Egypt, and he had been given a very hard choice to make, and he had not really been given a choice.
There was a knock on the door.
"Enter!" Aknankanon called.
The door opened, and Aknaudin, Aknankanon's brother, walked in. "Brother, have you made a choice?" Aknaudin asked.
"I was not given a real option." Aknankanon said.
Aknaudin saw the eight documents and said, "So, it will happen."
"I'm afraid so." Aknankanon said.
"I don't like this, but there is no other option. I don't have a choice. I just hope that the boys understand that." Aknaudin said.
"I know. I haven't told them yet. That's what I need to do now." Aknankanon said.
"Would you like my help?" Aknaudin asked.
"I would appreciate it, brother." Aknankanon replied.
The two stood up and left the office.
Aknankanon took the documents with him.
Atemu and Bakura were currently in the middle of a racing video game.
"There's no way that I am losing to you a fifth time!" Bakura growled.
Atemu laughed. "You say that every time we play this game, and you always lose." Atemu said.
Yami and Marik watched with little interest since they knew that Atemu would most likely win.
Seto was reading a book, not even paying attention to the game.
Atemu was the Crown Prince of Egypt. He had a bit f a childish side, but he was also very serious when he needed to be, and he took his duty as the Crown Prince as well as the future Pharaoh of Egypt very seriously.
Yami was Atemu's younger brother by one year. Despite the age difference, Yami and Atemu looked enough like each other to be twins although Yami's tan wasn't as dark as Atemu's.
Bakura was a cousin to the two princes on their mother's side. Bakura was loud and obnoxious at times and acted like he hated his cousins, but he secretly cared a great deal about them and would do anything for them.
Marik was Bakura's twin brother although they looked nothing alike. He also didn't act like eh care much for Yami and Atemu, but he also would do anything for them.
Seto was the oldest of them, and he was Yami and Atemu's cousin on their father's side. Seto was Aknaudin's son. Seto always seemed serious.
Atemu and Bakura finished their game with Atemu winning.
"Damn it! I lost again!" Bakura shouted.
Yami rolled his eyes. "That's not much of a surprise, Bakura. Atemu's never been eaten by anyone in anything." Yami said.
Bakura glared at Atemu who only smirked.
The door to the lounge opened, and Aknankanon and Aknaudin walked in the room.
"What did Atemu beat Bakura at this time?" Aknankanon asked.
"A racing game." Seto answered without looking up.
"I thought you weren't paying attention to the race." Bakura said.
"I wasn't, but you two have been playing that game for two hours." Seto replied.
"Turn off the game. We need to talk." Aknankanon said.
Atemu did as he was told and turned the game as well as the TV off.
"Seto, put the book down. This concerns you, too." Aknaudin said.
Seto did as he was told and marked his place in his book before he set it aside.
"Father. Uncle. What's going on?" Yami asked.
"Boys, you know that we have been having some trouble with the Millennial World in recent days." Aknankanon said.
"Yeah. The Emperor is really giving you a hard time." Yami said.
"Yes, he is. We have been given a peace agreement, though." Aknankanon said.
"More like an ultimatum." Aknaudin said.
"What do you mean?" Atemu asked.
Aknankanon sighed. "There is no easy way to say this. Emperor Kenshin has agreed to a peace agreement, but there are four terms to the peace agreement that none of you are going to like." Aknankanon said.
"What is it?" Seto asked, ready for anything.
"Well, for starts, Atemu, you are going to have to marry Prince Heba, Emperor Kenshin's son." Aknankanon said.
"I what?!" Atemu exclaimed, shocked.
"I'm afraid that's not all. Seto, you have to marry Lord Joey, one of the Emperor's nephews." Aknankanon said.
"I have to marry him!" Seto shouted.
"Bakura, you have to marry Lord Ryou, another of Kenshin's nephews." Aknankanon said.
"I have to marry one of those Millennial bastards!" Bakura hollered.
"And Marik, you have to marry Lord Malik, the last of Kenshin's nephews." Aknankanon said.
"I have to marry one, too!" Marik yelled.
Yami looked on, shocked. "What about me?" Yami asked.
"You were the lucky one." Aknaudin answered.
"There is no way that I am marrying that Millennial Prince! He'll try and take over!" Atemu said.
"Yeah! I don't want to marry that mutt of a Millennial!" Seto added.
"I won't marry one of those power hungry lowlifes!" Bakura snapped.
"There is no way that I am going to throw my life away to be married by one of them!" Marik growled.
Aknankanon sighed again. He had expected this. "I understand why you feel this way, but there is no real choice." Aknankanon said.
"Why don't we have a choice?" Seto demanded.
"It is why I call it an ultimatum. If we refuse to have you marry them, Kenshin will launch an attack against us, which will end up starting a war with the Millennial Kingdom." Aknaudin said.
Atemu, Seto, Bakura, Marik, and Yami all starred at them in shock.
The Millennial Kingdom was a kingdom that existed in a parallel world with a direct link to Earth. It was much more technologically advanced than Egypt, and it could easily defeat Egypt with it's advanced weaponry and numerous soldiers.
"How is this a peace agreement?" Atemu asked.
"In all honesty, it's not one, but it's all we've got. We don't have a choice. You have to marry them to keep us out of a war." Aknankanon said.
Bakura noticed the documents and said, "Are those marriage contracts?"
"Yes. Emperor Kenshin sent the marriage contracts for the four of them here. I have already made out the marriage contracts for all of you." Aknankanon said.
The four nodded, though they hated the idea.
"How long before the weddings take place?" Yami asked.
"You will all be married within a month's time. Atemu and Prince Heba will be married in one week." Aknankanon said.
"A week?!" Atemu exclaimed.
"A month's time?!" Bakura, Marik, and Seto shouted.
"All arranged marriages are done within a month's time." Aknaudin reminded them.
Atemu groaned. "And I'm first." Atemu said.
"I'm sorry, Atemu, but there is no other way." Aknankanon said.
"I know, Father. Just know that I am only going through with this for the sake of the kingdom." Atemu said.
"I understand. I'll tell you more when the time comes." Aknankanon said. He and Aknaudin stood up. "I am sorry about this, but there is no other way." Aknankanon said.
Atemu, Seto, Marik, and Bakura all nodded their understanding as Aknankanon and Aknaudin left.
"Well, our lives just went down the drain." Bakura said as he flopped into a fluffy armchair.
"Yeah. I can't believe that we have to get married." Marik added, falling onto his back on the floor.
Atemu rubbed his head. "I just hope that these people don't try to take control of the kingdom." Atemu said.
"All you can do is wait and see." Yami said.
"Easy for you to say. You're not having to get married." Seto snapped.
"It's not my fault." Yami said.
"He's right. To deal with this, we're really going to have to stick together to deal with this." Atemu said.
"You're right. We're going to have to be ready for anything that these people throw at us." Marik said.
"This should be an interesting turn." Bakura remarked.
The Egyptian palace was abuzz as preparations for Atemu's wedding.
"I can't believe that Atemu's getting married." Amara, Aknankanon's wife, the Queen of Egypt, said.
"I know, Your Majesty." Isis, the palace healer, said.
"I just hope that everything is perfect for it." Amara said.
"It will be, Amara. Don't worry." Aknankanon assured his wife.
"How is Atemu handling this?" Amara asked.
"Rather well." Aknankanon said.
A book slammed against the wall.
"I hate this! I have to get married to someone that I have never even seen before in two days!" Atemu growled.
Yami sat in a chair, watching his brother have a fit. "You know that this isn't helping." Yami said.
"I know that. It helps me release some of the anger that I feel, though." Atemu said as he paced the room.
"You know, you could just say that you don't want to marry him." Yami said.
"Oh, yes. That would go over well. Not only is there a binding marriage contract that doesn't give me an option, there is also the fact that refusing will result in a war with the Millennial Kingdom that we would end up losing in the end." Atemu said.
"Stop fretting over it. You can't change it." Yami said.
Atemu sighed and flopped face first on his large bed. "I hate my life." Atemu said.
"Did you ever think that maybe it won't be as bad?" Yami asked.
Atemu raised up to look at Yami. "Not so bad? I'm being forced into a marriage with a prince that I have never met, a prince who may end up trying to take over the kingdom, and you say it won't be so bad." Atemu said.
"Atemu, you've never met him. I know he'll be a jerk, but you have to deal with it. At least they got the gender right." Yami said.
It was a well-known fact that Atemu as well as Marik, Bakura, Seto, and Yami were all gay and preferred men to women.
"That doesn't help much." Atemu muttered.
"It could have been a princess." Yami reminded him.
"Emperor Kenshin doesn't have any daughters." Atemu muttered.
Yami groaned. "Atemu, just try and deal with it." Yami said.
"I'm trying, but that's not exactly easy." Atemu said.
"Well, don't show it to anyone else." Yami said.
"I won't." Atemu said.
The following day, Prince Heba along with Lord Joey, Lord, Ryou, and Lord Malik came to Egypt.
Aknankanon, Amara, Atemu, Yami, Seto, Marik, Bakura, Marik, and the priests were there to greet them.
'So, I get to see him now.' Atemu thought.
The four arrived wearing cloaks.
The guards were prepared.
"Welcome to Egypt, Prince Heba." Aknankanon said.
"Thank you, Pharaoh." a gentle voice said.
The four removed their cloaks.
Everyone was startled.
Heba looked almost exactly like Atemu although he had soft features and wide, amethyst eyes.
Ryou looked a lot like Bakura only his hair was as wild and his features were softer.
Malik, like Ryou, looked like a gentler version of Marik.
Joey was the one that didn't look like his fiancé. He was blonde with honey-gold eyes.
"I am Prince Heba, Pharaoh. Thank you for greeting us." Heba said.
'This is who I'm marrying.' Atemu thought. He had envisioned someone bulkier and mean looking. To Atemu, Heba looked like delicate.
"I am Lord Joey, Pharaoh." Joey said.
"I am Lord Ryou." Ryou added.
"I am Lord Malik." Malik said.
"We would like to welcome you all to Egypt." Aknankanon said.
"Thank you, Pharaoh." Heba said.
Aknankanon turned to Atemu and said, "This is my son, Atemu."
Atemu then stepped forward. "It is good to meet you, Prince Heba." Atemu said.
"It is a pleasure to meet you as well, Prince Atemu." Heba said.
"Come. You should get out of the heat." Amara said.
The four followed the group into the palace.
"Can you believe how much like us those three look?" Bakura muttered to Marik.
"I know. I didn't know that I had a double out there." Marik replied.
The group arrived in the throne room.
"Lord Joey, this is my nephew, Seto." Aknankanon said, motioning to Seto.
Joey bowed and said, "It is a pleasure to meet you."
"The pleasure is mine." Seto said, also bowing.
"This is Bakura, Lord Ryou." Amara said, motioning to Ryou.
"I am pleased to meet you, Lord Bakura." Ryou said, bowing.
"As am I, Lord Ryou." Bakura said.
"And this is Marik, Lord Malik." Aknankanon said.
"A pleasure, Lord Marik." Malik said, bowing.
"As am I, Lord Malik." Marik replied.
"Why do you not show them to your rooms? I will have the servants bring your things to them." Aknankanon said.
"Thank you, Pharaoh." Heba said.
Atemu and the others led Heba and the others out.
"What do you think?" Aknaudin asked.
"I don't know. Certainly not what I expected." Aknankanon said.
"I know. I can't believe that they looked like Atemu, Marik, and Bakura." Amara said.
"It's a coincidence, nothing more." Aknankanon said.
There was an uneasy silence that followed as Atemu, Seto, Marik, and Bakura showed their fiancés to their rooms.
Each one of them showed them to a room.
Heba, Joey, Ryou, and Malik all thanked them before going into the rooms.
"I don't know what I imagined when I was told that I would be married by him. I certainly didn't expect that." Atemu said.
"I bet we could take him down in a fight easily. Any of them, actually." Bakura said.
"We don't need to start anything. There's no telling what could happen." Seto said.
"We know. What now?" Marik asked.
"We suck it up and get used to the fact that we're getting married to them." Seto said.
~Atemu's Wedding Day~
Yami was helping Atemu get ready for the wedding.
Atemu was wearing black leather pants, a white shirt, and a crimson cape as well as the crown.
"I hate this." Atemu said, fidgeting.
"Calm down. You're getting married, not being sentenced to death." Yami said.
Atemu glared. "Shut up." Atemu said.
"You're ready. Come on." Yami said.
"Fine." Atemu said.
The two headed for where the wedding would be held.
Heba was getting ready with help from Joey, Ryou, and Malik.
"Are you ready for this, Heba?" Joey asked.
"I'm getting married to someone that I don't know to stop Father from starting a war with Egypt." Heba said.
"I guess we all have that problem." Malik said.
Heba was dressed in white pants, a black shirt, and had a blue cape on.
"Let's go." Ryou said.
Heba nodded. "I guess I don't have a choice." Heba said.
The four left the room.
Atemu was already standing at the alter in the gardens when it was time for the wedding to start.
Music started to play, and Heba appeared from the entrance.
Atemu watched as Heba gracefully walked down toward where he was. 'He doesn't look bad. In fact, he's beautiful, but I have to remember that he is a possible threat to us.' Atemu thought.
Heba arrived at the alter, and the two turned to face Mahado, the priest who would be officiating the ceremony.
"We are gathered here to day to join Prince Atemu of Egypt and Prince Heba of the Millennial Kingdom together in holy matrimony." Mahado said.
The crowd, which was a mix of Egyptian nobles and Millennial nobles, were silent as they watched the wedding proceed.
"Prince Atemu, do you take Prince Heba as your husband, to have and to hold, in sickness and in health as long as you both live?" Mahado asked.
"I do." Atemu said.
"Prince Heba, do you take Prince Heba as your husband, to have and to hold, in sickness and in health as long as you both live?" Mahado asked.
"I do." Heba replied.
"The rings?" Mahado asked.
Yami handed Atemu the silver ring to give to Heba, and Ryou handed Heba the silver ring to give to Atemu.
"Prince Atemu, place the ring on Prince Heba's right hand and say 'with this ring, I thee wed'." Mahado said.
Atemu placed the ring on Heba's ring finger on his right hand and said, "With this ring, I thee wed."
"Prince Heba, place the ring on Prince Atemu's right hand and say 'with this ring, I thee wed'." Mahado said.
Heba placed the ring on Atemu's right ring finger and said, "With this ring, I thee wed."
"I now pronounce you married. You may kiss you husband." Mahado said.
Atemu and Heba kissed each other briefly.
The guests applauded for them.
Over the next month, Seto and Joey were married, Marik and Malik were married, and Ryou and Bakura were married.
The couples had very little interaction with each other. In fact, when they did speak to each other, they ended up at each other's throat.
Atemu, Bakura, Marik, and Seto showed their husbands nothing but contempt.
Aknankanon would have said something had it not been for the fact that Heba, Ryou, Malik, and Joey all showed their husbands the exact same thing.
None of the marriages had been consummated, and they didn't even sleep in the same room in the palace.
It was tense with them.
Aknankanon worried that it might cause tensions with the Millennial Kingdom, but nothing had come of it.
In fact, he hadn't heard a word from Emperor Kenshin since the marriages took place.
Aknankanon hoped that they would not near from Emperor Kenshin again for a long time, although he wished that he could do something about the four married couples.
Hope you liked it. For anyone who wondered, the other three weddings went the way Atemu's did. Let me know what you think of it.
Next: Some problems among the couples.
