I've still got a lot of schoolwork to do, so that's why I haven't been updating like I usually do. When I'm done with school, I'll be able to update more.
Here's the next and last chapter.
Chapter 24- Happily Ever After
~Fifteen Years Later, Millennial Kingdom~
"Isabella, move over. I need the mirror." sixteen-year-old Jasmine said, pushing her sister out of the way of the mirror.
"Jasmine! I wasn't finished!" Isabella snapped, the brush in her hand.
"Hurry up, you two! I need to get ready, too." Aurora said.
"Come on! I have to get ready!" Jasmine said.
"So do I!" Isabella retorted.
"I haven't even been able to start!" Aurora said.
All three turned to look at Yami, who had his arms crossed and his eyes narrowed as he looked at them. All three gulped.
"Hi, Daddy." Aurora said.
"Don't 'hi, Daddy' me. What is going on here? Why are you arguing with me so much?" Yami asked, his gaze not wavering.
"We were having a little-dispute about getting ready." Jasmine said.
Yami mentally groaned. 'Again.' Yami thought. "Girls, you know that you have to share this room for getting ready, right?" Yami asked.
"Yes, Daddy." all three girls said.
"Now, you all have plenty of time to get ready for the ball tonight. Who was the first one at the vanity?" Yami asked.
"I was." Isabella said.
Aurora and Jasmine knew better than to dispute it.
"Isabella, you finish getting ready. Be done in less than twenty minutes. Then Aurora will go, and you will have thirty minutes since you haven't started. Jasmine will go last, and you will also have thirty minutes. Understood?" Yami asked.
"Yes." the three girls said.
"Good." Yami said before he turned and left the room.
The girls sighed.
"I like it better when Papa gets onto us." Jasmine said.
"Yeah. His gaze isn't nearly as frightening as daddy's is." Aurora agreed.
"Well, I'll finish getting ready." Isabella said, sitting down.
"Might as well go and get my clothes out for tonight." Aurora said.
"Me, too." jasmine agreed.
The two left the room, and Isabella went on with getting ready.
"I hate those balls!" seventeen-year-old Nicky groaned.
"I do, too. At least you don't have people throwing themselves at you because you are the Crown Prince." Jackson retorted.
Nicky snickered. "I wouldn't want that burden." Nicky said.
Jackson sighed. "I don't know why Papa and Dad made me the Crown Prince." Jackson said.
Nicky raised an eyebrow. "I thought that you were looking forward to being king." Nicky said.
"I guess I am, kind of. I just wish there weren't people all over me because of the fact that I am going to be king. I don't want to be with someone who is only after my position and looks." Jackson said.
"It's not funny!" Jackson snapped.
There was a knock on the door.
"Come in." Nicky called.
The door opened, and Yami walked in. "What's going on in here, boys?" Yami asked.
"Nothing, dad. Jackson's just dreading the people throwing themselves at him at the ball tonight." Nicky said.
"Oh. I understand now. I know how you feel." Yami said.
Jackson looked at him. "Do I have to go tonight, dad?" Jackson asked.
"Jackson, as the Crown Prince, you know that you have to be there. You don't have a choice." Yami said.
Yami chuckled and patted his son on his back. "Jackson, I know your pain. Even after all these years of having to deal with them, I still hate balls, but you just have to suck it up and deal with them." Yami said.
"Does Papa feel the same way?" Nicky asked.
"Yes. Now, just make sure you're there on time." Yami said.
"We will." Nicky and Jackson said.
Yami nodded and left the room.
"Sorry, Jackson, but I think that you're out of luck this time around." Nicky said.
"I noticed." Jackson replied.
Yami went to a door and opened it to find a small child in the room.
The young boy was playing with some toys in the floor. He had star-shaped tri-color hair with lightening bolt streaks going up the spikes. He also had sharp features and one amethyst eye and one crimson eye.
"What are you up to, Eric?" Yami asked.
The young boy looked back and his eyes lit up when he saw Yami. "Hi, Daddy!" Eric exclaimed, jumping up and launching himself at Yami.
Yami picked up the boy.
"I was just playing." Eric said.
"Having fun?" Yami asked."Yeah, but I wish I had someone to play with." Eric said.
Yami chuckled. "Don't worry. Your Uncles should be here soon, so you'll have someone to play with soon." Yami said.
"Yay!" Eric exclaimed.
Yami laughed as he sat Eric back down. "Have you seen your Papa, Eric?" Yami asked.
"Yes. Papa was here a little while ago. Dartz came here and said that there was something about that thing tonight he needed Papa's help with." Eric said.
"Okay. Have fun." Yami said, ruffling his son's hair.
"Okay." Eric said before he went back to playing with his toys.
Yami smiled and left the room.
Yugi and Yami had had Eric five years ago. Neither had planned on them having anymore kids, but Eric had been a surprise, but one they loved.
Yami started to look for his husband. 'If Dartz needed Yugi to take care of something, then he's probably in the ballroom.' Yami thought. He headed for the ballroom and arrived at it just as Yugi was coming out of the room.
"Oh! Yami! What are you doing here?" Yugi asked.
"Making sure that our kids were getting ready." Yami said.
"Any problems?" Yugi asked.
"Resolved a dispute between the girls, told Jackson I understood why he hated balls, and I assured Eric that he would have a playmate when Atemu, Heba, and the others got here." Yami answered.
Yugi laughed. "You've been busy." Yugi said.
"Yeah. What was going on?" Yami asked.
"Nothing serious. Just a few last minute things like always." Yugi answered, rubbing his stomach.
"Problem?" Yami asked.
"Yeah. I'm pregnant." Yugi answered.
This one had been a surprise, too.
Yami chuckled as he wrapped an arm around Yugi's waist. "Well, I think that we're both agreed that these two are the last of the kids we're having." Yami said.
"It had better be because if I have anymore than these two, I swear that you are going to die." Yugi said.
"You said that when you were pregnant with Eric." Yami reminded him.
"I know, but I mean it this time." Yugi said.
"Well, I don't think that we're going to want anymore after these twins arrive." Yami said.
The two walked back to their room.
"Well, Heba and the others should be getting here soon." Yugi said.
"Yeah, but we should probably get ready ourselves." Yami said.
"I know." Yugi said.
The two got out the clothes that they would wear and changed.
Yugi wore a lavender shirt with a lavender coat over the shirt. He also had on a darker purple pair of pants with black boots. He also had on a lavender cape along with his crown.
Yami wore a red shirt with a black coat and a pair of black pants. He also wore a pair of white boots and a crimson cape as well as the crown.
"I hate this." Yugi said.
"I'll give you the same advice I gave Jackson. Suck it up and deal with it." Yami said.
Yugi sighed. "I know." Yugi said.
"Hurry up already!" Atemu snapped.
Heba walked up and said, "Calm down, Atemu. We're going to make it in plenty of time."
"I know. I just don't want to chance being late." Atemu said.
Heba rolled his eyes. "We're not going to be late." Heba assured him.
A few moments later, twenty-one year old Alex walked up with his wife, Angelina.
"We're ready." Alex said.
"All right. Any idea where Miranda and Chris are at?" Atemu asked.
"Atemu, Miranda is getting Adam and Claire for us, and Chris went to get everyone else." Heba said.
"Okay." Atemu said before walking off.
"Papa, is Dad ever going to calm down?" Alex asked.
Heba sighed. "You know your father, Alex. He's always like that." Heba said.
"Yeah. I know." Alex said.
Atemu had taken the throne at the age of twenty-four when his father passed away. Amara passed away a year after Aknankanon had.
Atemu and Heba had another set of twins, a boy and a girl, named Adam and Claire who was the same age as Eric.
After having five kids, the two had decided to have no more kids.
Ryou and Bakura had had one other child, a girl, who was six years old named Anna. Ricky was now twenty.
Malik and Marik had had a set of twins themselves that were two boys. The boys were named Maxwell and Bryon. They were ten years old. Anastasia was nineteen.
Seto and Joey had had three more children. In addition to eighteen-year-old Seth, the two had thirteen-year-old Victoria, ten-year-old Andrew, and seven-year-old Samuel.
It wasn't long before everyone else had joined them.
"All right. We're all ready." Seto said.
"Glad to hear that." Atemu said.
Adam and Claire ran over to their parents.
"I think that we're ready to go now, Atemu." Heba said, knowing that his husband wanted to get to the Millennial Kingdom.
Ryou opened the portal to the Millennial Kingdom, and they all went through it.
Having sensed a portal being opened, Yami walked to where the portal was in time to see the rest of his family walk through it. "I'm glad that you guys could make it." Yami said/
"Anytime." Atemu said.
"I'm glad to see that Uncle Yugi hasn't killed you yet." Alex said.
"What do you mean by that?" Yami asked, raising an eyebrow.
"We were all sure that he would have killed you by now." Miranda answered.
"We've worked through that little detail." Yami said.
"Yami, I don't call getting him pregnant again a little detail." Heba said.
"I noticed. Come on." Yami said.
The group followed him down the hall.
"So, where's Eric? I'll take the younger kids to plat with him." Heba said. "He's in the playroom like always." Yami answered.
Heba then took Adam, Claire, Anna, Maxwell, Bryon, and Andrew to the playroom.
Yami led everyone else to their room.
Heba entered the playroom to find Yugi in the room.
"Uncle Yugi!" Adam and Claire exclaimed, going to hug him.
"Hey, guys. Glad to see you." Yugi said, hugging his niece and nephew.
"I figured they would all rather come in here." Heba said.
"No problem. I'm sure Eric doesn't mind the company." Yugi assured his brother.
The other kids had already started playing, and Adam and Claire went to join them.
"How are you doing?" Heba asked.
"I'm okay." Yugi answered.
"I thought for sure that you would have killed Yami by now." Heba said.
"Well, it wasn't ideal, but I didn't exactly have a choice, but to deal with this." Yugi said.
"Point taken. Who'll be looking after them while we're at the ball?" Heba asked.
"The nanny, of course. We have two of them." Yugi said.
The two then left the room.
"I was surprised that you wanted to throw a ball when you're eight months pregnant with twins." Heba commented.
"I didn't want to, but it's an annual ball, and I didn't exactly have a choice." Yugi answered.
"Oh. We have those, too." Heba said.
"How is everyone?" Yugi asked.
"Well, you'll see them soon enough, but they're all fine." Heba answered.
"That's good to know." Yugi said.
Yugi and Yami had done their welcoming thing, and the ball was now in full swing.
There were a lot of people out on the dance floor dancing.
Ryou and Malik had dragged their respective husbands out onto the dance floor and were dancing with them.
Jasmine and Isabella were out dancing with a couple of guys with Yami watching them like a hawk.
The more reserved Aurora wasn't dancing at the moment.
Nicky and Jackson had had several girls come up to them, but both had declined.
Nicky had been watching one of the servant girls while Jackson was dancing with a guy he had found interesting.
Miranda had also found a dancing partner while Chris was trying to get the girls to stop swooning over him.
Ricky and Seth had the same problem as Chris.
Anastasia already had a boyfriend back in Egypt, so she wasn't trying to find a dancing partner, and Victoria knew that Seto would kill her since he had forbidden her from dating until she was fifteen.
Atemu and Yami were watching their daughters as they danced.
"Calm down, you two. They're old enough to start dating, so deal with it. You can't protect them forever." Yugi said.
"We know, but we can always try." Yami said as he watched a guy ask Aurora to dance and she shyly accepted.
"Victoria is dead f she tries." Seto growled.
Joey rolled his eyes. "She knows she can't date until she's fifteen, Seto. Calm down." Joey said.
"It looks like Jackson is going for the male company more than female." Heba said.
"Yeah. He's admitted to us that he prefers guys to girls." Yugi answered.
Yami shrugged. "Doesn't matter." Yami said.
"Nope." Atemu agreed.
"Is this what you guys do at every ball? Stand around and talk about us?" Alex asked.
"Yes." they all answered.
"Nice to know." Alex said sarcastically.
Angelina chuckled. "I take it when he and I were courting, we were a big topic." Angelina said.
"Yes, you were. Alex is the first of any of our kids to get married." Heba answered.
"At least he had sense enough to wait a while before he got married." Joey said.
"Yeah. You were all seventeen when you got married, right?" Alex asked.
"Yes. Except for Yugi and Yami, the marriages were forced. Of course, we all fell in love in the end." Atemu said.
"Well, that's the important part." Angelina said. She turned to her husband and said, "Come on, Alex. Let's dance."
"Do I have to?' Alex whined.
"Yes." Angelina answered, grabbing Alex by the hand and dragging him out onto the dance floor.
"I take it that Alex is whipped." Yami said.
"Alex was whipped before they got married." Atemu answered.
"Most people are." Seto said.
After a while, Yugi ended up having to sit back down because his feet were killing him, and he could only take so much.
"Do you need to end the ball early, Yugi?" Yami asked.
"No, Yami. I'll be fine. I promise." Yugi assured his husband.
Yami nodded before going back to mingle.
Yugi watched as everyone talked, ate, and danced. 'I'm glad that the ball is a success.' Yugi thought.
By the time the ball ended, everyone was tired.
Atemu, Heba, and all the others would be staying at the Millennial palace that night, so after Yugi and Yami had done all their duties as hosts, all of them headed to their separate rooms to go to bed.
The following morning, Yugi was the first one to wake up, and he wasn't thrilled with why he woke up. The twins he was having were rather active at the moment.
Yugi sighed as he looked at the clock and saw that it was only five in the morning. 'Great. I wake up this early.' Yugi thought. He glanced to the side and saw that his husband was still sound asleep. 'Yami won't be up for another hour or so.' Yugi thought.
Knowing that there was no point in trying to go back to sleep, Yugi got out of bed and headed into the bathroom to shower and change.
Once that was done, Yugi walked back out into the room and left the room all together.
Yugi walked down the hall and was surprised to hear noise coming from inside Eric's room. 'What is he doing up this early?' Yugi asked himself. He opened the door and found Eric up and playing with Claire, Adam, Anna, and Samuel.
Eric looked up and smiled. "Morning, Papa." Eric said.
"Morning, Uncle Yugi." Anna, Claire, Adam, and Samuel all said.
"Good morning. What are all of you doing up this early?" Yugi asked.
"We're just playing, Papa. We're not bothering anyone." Eric said.
"All right. Just make sure you don't bother anyone right now. It's still a little early." Yugi said.
"Okay." the kids said.
Yugi smiled and left the room.
Yugi turned to find himself facing Atemu. "Atemu, what are you doing up?" Yugi asked.
"I could ask you the same thing. I get up about this time every morning, so I'm used to get up this early." Atemu replied.
"Blame your niece and nephew for waking me up." Yugi said.
"Oh. I take it that they're active this morning." Atemu said.
"Like you wouldn't believe." Yugi answered.
"What's going on in there?" Atemu asked, pointing to Eric's room
"Eric, Adam, Claire, Anna, and Samuel are all in there playing." Yugi answered.
"It's too early for that." Atemu said rubbing his forehead.
"Well, I can understand why Eric does it. He doesn't have anyone his age that he gets to play with on a daily basis, so he likes it when they're here. He just makes the most of it." Yugi said.
"And the other four?" Atemu asked.
"Don't see Eric that often and want to make the most of it." Yugi answered.
"Makes sense, I suppose." Atemu muttered.
"Well, since we're both up, we might as well go to the lounge. No one else will be up, and the kitchen staff will just now be getting everything started for breakfast." Yugi said.
"All right." Atemu said.
The two headed down the hall to the lounge where the two went in and sat down.
"How have you been going, Yugi?" Atemu asked.
"I'm okay. Just ready for the twins to come already." Yugi answered.
"I honestly thought that I wouldn't have a live sibling when I heard that you were pregnant again." Atemu said.
"You almost didn't." Yugi answered.
"I'm guessing that you two have gotten used to the idea of having two more." Atemu said.
"Don't exactly have a choice." Yugi said. He smiled. "Although I don't mind the idea of having them. It'll be nice, but this is it for us." Yugi said.
Atemu laughed. "Heba said that after he had Adam and Claire." Atemu said.
"In any case, Yami and I are looking forward to having them." Yugi said.
"I'm sure that you are. You should have them before long, shouldn't you?" Atemu asked.
"Yeah. I'm already eight months, so it won't be too much longer." Yugi agreed.
"Have you two gotten the nursery ready?" Atemu asked.
"It's been ready since the moment that I found out I was having a boy and a girl." Yugi answered.
"You two got it ready that fast?" Atemu asked, a little surprised.
"No. Jasmine, Isabella, and Aurora got it ready the moment they heard." Yugi answered.
Atemu looked at him in surprise. "The girls got the nursery ready?" Atemu asked.
"Yep. They are real excited about the twins." Yugi agreed.
"I know they weren't quite so thrilled when you had Eric." Atemu said.
"Well, they were eleven at the time, so it wasn't quite so exciting, but they're ecstatic this time around. I'm trying to figure out if they're looking more forward to when they come or Yami." Yugi said.
Atemu laughed. "Well, at least they're going to be willing to help out with the twins from the sound of it." Atemu said.
"No kidding." Yugi agreed.
Later that morning, everyone had gathered together in the dining room for breakfast.
"So, when are you all leaving?" Yami asked.
"Probably before lunch. We have to get back because there's a lot going on in the kingdom." Atemu said.
"Yeah. We wish that we could have stay longer." Heba said.
"Don't worry about it, Heba. We know that you have a lot to do with the kingdom. Believe me. Yami and I have ruled long enough to know how demanding it is." Yugi said.
"No kidding." Yami agreed.
"We might try and come back when things settle down so that we can stay longer." Atemu said.
"Just let us know when so that we can be ready." Yugi said.
"We will. Besides, we have to come back when the twins are born." Heba said.
It wasn't long before the entire group left.
Yugi found Eric in his room. "Eric, are you all right?" Yugi asked.
"I hate not having anyone to play with, Papa." Eric said.
Yugi knew what the problem was. He sat down in the chair in the room. "I know you miss having kids to play with, Eric, but they had to go home. There's nothing that I can do about that." Yugi said.
"I know." Eric said.
Yugi smiled. "Eric, they are going to come back when they can. I know you like it when you have someone to play with, but that's when you just have to go with it." Yugi said.
Eric looked up at Yugi. "When do you think they'll be back/" Eric asked.
"I really don't know, Eric. You do have something to look forward to when they come again." Yugi said.
Eric's eyes then brightened. "Okay, Papa." Eric said.
"Good." Yugi said, ruffling Eric's hair. He then stood up and started to leave the room.
"Papa." Eric said.
Yugi turned back. "Yes?" Yugi asked.
"When are the babies going to get here?" Eric asked.
"They'll be here soon, Eric." Yugi assured him.
"Okay. Eric said.
Yugi then left the room. He was soon joined by Yami.
"Where have you been?" Yami asked, slipping an arm around Yugi's waist.
"I was talking to Eric. He's a little down now that he doesn't have anyone to play with." Yugi answered.
"Oh. That happens every time." Yami said.
"I know." Yugi said. He grimaced when he felt a sharp kick.
"Are they active?" Yami asked, noticing Yugi's expression.
"Yeah. It's a little painful at times." Yugi admitted.
"Well, you don't have much longer until they get here." Yami said.
"One can only hope." Yugi said.
"Yugi, why don't you go and rest? I can handle the kingdom for the day." Yami said.
"You sure?" Yugi asked.
"I'm sure. Now go." Yami urged him.
Yugi nodded and headed for their room while Yami went to the throne room.
Yugi was laying on his bed when there was a knock on the door.
"Come in!" Yugi called.
The door opened, and Jasmine, Isabella, and Aurora all poked their heads into the room.
"What are you girls doing here?" Yugi asked them.
"Well, we were just wondering if you were okay. We know Dad's handling everything alone, and we were a little worried." Jasmine said.
Yugi smiled and sat up. "Come on in, girls." Yugi said.
Jasmine, Isabella, and Aurora all walked into the room and sat down on the bed with Yugi.
"Just so you all know, I am fine. I'm a little tired, so your dad decided to handle everything so that I can rest." Yugi said.
"Oh. We were just a little worried." Isabella said.
"Well, I appreciate your concern, but I am going to be fine. I just needed to rest." Yugi said.
"Okay, Dad." Aurora said.
~Two Weeks Later~
Yugi had the twins two weeks later.
The boy had star-shaped, tri-color hair with no lightening bolt streaks in his hair, soft features, and crimson eyes. He had been named Derek.
The girl had tri-color hair with sharp features and amethyst eyes. She had been named Amanda.
"Aw! They're so cute!" Isabella said.
"Yeah. It's going to be so much fun watching them grow up." Aurora agreed.
"Oh, yeah. Crying in the middle of the night.' Such fun." Nicky said.
Yami rolled his eyes. "Nicky, Yugi and I are the ones that will be dealing with that. You won't have to deal with that." Yami said.
"I hope not." Nicky said.
"Come on, Nicky. They're our brother and sister. There's not much that you can do about that fact." Jasmine said.
"Unfortunately." Nicky muttered.
"Nicky!" Aurora, Jasmine, Isabella, and Jackson all said.
"What?" Nicky asked. Noticing the looks on their faces, he dashed out of the room with his brother and sisters right on his heels.
"Nicky's going to get it when they catch up to him." Yami said.
"If they catch up to him." Yugi added.
"True." Yami said. He turned to look at Yugi. "They do know he doesn't mean it, right?" Yami asked.
"I'm sure that they do. They're just making him regret just saying it." Yugi answered.
Eric was looking up curiously at the babies that his parents were holding.
"Come up here, Eric." Yugi said.
Eric did as he was told and climbed up onto the bed beside Yugi.
"Eric, these are your brother and sister." Yugi said.
"Why are they so small?" Eric asked.
"All babies are small. They'll get bigger as they get older." Yami explained.
"Oh." Eric said.
"Don't worry, Eric. You'll see that they are going to get bigger." Yugi said.
Eric nodded, not fully understanding.
Heba and the others had been able to come and see the new twins.
The younger kids had all gone to play with Eric.
"Well, this is the shortest time between trips that any of us have ever made." Atemu said.
"You knew that Yugi could have the twins any time." Yami pointed out.
"I know." Atemu said.
"They are cute, though." Ryou said, looking at the twins.
"Thanks, guys." Yugi said.
"So, these are the last ones, right?" Marik asked.
"Yes." Yugi and Yami said at the same time.
"We're going to hold you to that." Atemu said.
"Go ahead." Yami said.
"In any case, they are so cute. I'm sure that they're both going to grow up to be heartbreakers." Joey said.
"Well, at least I only have to worry about Isabella, Jasmine, and Aurora in that respect." Yami said.
"What about Nicky and Jackson?" Bakura asked.
"I don't worry about them as much. Jackson's smart and knows how to handle himself." Yami said.
"Plus, we know that he prefers guys." Yugi said.
"And Nicky?" Atemu asked.
"He's gone through several girlfriends already, so we don't worry about him." Yami answered.
"I guess we all have to deal with the boyfriend or girlfriend thing now." Malik said.
"No kidding." Yugi said.
"Yeah. Heba and I have already had one married off." Atemu said.
"We'll all have to deal with that at some point." Atemu said.
~Ten Years Later, Millennial Kingdom~
Things had turned out very well for everyone.
No one else had any other kids.
Jackson had gotten married to a man named Daniel. The two now had a son and a daughter together.
Jasmine had been married for two years and saw now expecting twins.
Aurora was engaged.
Isabella was in a very serious relationship with a man.
Nicky had been married the longest, seven years. He had had three kids with his wife with another one on the way.
Eric was now fifteen, and he had just started to date.
Amanda and Derek were ten years old, and the two were very happy children.
Yugi and Yami had stepped down as the rulers and allowed Jackson and Daniel to take over.
Yugi and Yami were very happy with all their children and grandchildren around.
Despite having said that they were through with their family, Atemu and Heba ended up having another son named Michael. Michael was nine years old, only a year younger than Amanda and Derek.
None of the others had had anymore children.
Alex and Angelina had had three kids already.
Miranda had gotten married two years before, and she and her husband had had two children already.
Chris was also married, and he and his wife were expecting their first child.
Adam had been married for a year, and he and his wife were expecting their first child.
Claire had been married for a year and a half, and she and her husband were expecting twins, their first children.
Seth was also married to a man named Lucas, and the two had a child together.
Victoria had gotten married two years before. They didn't have any kids yet.
Andrew was recently engaged to his girlfriend.
Samuel had started a serious relationship with a girl.
Ricky had been married for several years, and he and his wife had two kids.
Anna was married, and she and her husband were expecting their first child.
Anastasia had been married for almost eight years now. She and her husband had had three children with a fourth one on the way.
Bryon had been married for a few years, and he and his wife had just had their first child.
Maxwell had recently gotten married, and he and his wife were enjoying married life.
Atemu and Heba had decided to step down as rulers and let Alex and Angelina take over the kingship.
"Well, this has been fun." Bakura said sarcastically.
"Just because I beat you isn't a reason to get upset." Seto said.
"You always beat me!" Bakura snapped.
The others shook their heads.
"Well, for how things started with all of us meeting each other, I think that we all had pretty good lives." Yugi said.
Atemu laughed. "Yeah. Other than you and Yami, we all were forced into these marriages." Atemu said. He then added, "Of course, I don't regret it at all."
"None of us do. We all have had great children, and we all have great grandchildren." Ryou said.
"No kidding." Yugi said.
"Yeah. And since that deal with that Masako idiot, we haven't had any real problems in our lives." Joey said.
"That's true." Yami said.
"So, what should we do?" Marik asked.
"Marik, we are all retired from everything that we do. We do whatever we want." Malik said.
"I meant right now." Marik said.
"None of us are as young as we used to be." Atemu said.
"Besides, not all of us have grown kids that don't need us anymore." Yugi said.
"Right. We do." Heba said.
"Well, we were smart as to not have eight kids. Or six." Bakura said.
"So sue us." Yugi retorted.
The group laughed at that.
"You know, we are all really lucky to have the great families that we do." Yugi said.
None of them argued with that.
They were all happy with how their lives turned out, and they wouldn't change their lives for anything.
Hope you liked it. This was the last chapter of this story, and I want to thank everyone who read, reviewed, favorited, and alerted this story, and the other two stories in this trilogy.
Now, I'll probably work on my Flareshipping story Everlasting Love before I start a new story. I might just do some oneshots would be all.
