Chapter 40- Happy Ending
~Ten Years Later~
Yami was sitting in the living room of his home.
It was summertime, and Yami had the day off.
It was a nice day to relax.
"Stop it, Chris!"
"Shut up, Caitlyn!"Or not.
Yami sighed as he placed his book down on the coffee table. He stood up and headed up the stairs.
In what was now called the playroom, there were three children.
Caitlyn Marie Sennen had long, tri-color hair with soft features and crimson eyes.
Christopher Scott Sennen, Chris for short, had star-shaped, tri-color hair with lightning bolt streaks in his hair along with sharp features and amethyst eyes.
The last one, Eric Sawyer Sennen, had star-shaped, tri-color hair with no lightening bolt streaks, soft features, and eyes that seemed to be a mix of crimson and amethyst.
The three were triplets that Yugi and Yami had had three years after they had had Will and Gabrielle, which meant they were now seven.
"What is going on here?" Yami asked sternly.
Caitlyn and Chris looked at their father, stopping the fight over the controller to the game system they were playing on.
"Um, nothing." Chris said.
Yami's eyes narrowed. "Christopher, don't start with me." Yami said.
Chris gulped. The only time his full first name was used was when he was in trouble. "Well, we were playing a game, and we got kind of angry at each other." Chris admitted.
"You know that Yugi and I do not like it when you fight. If you cannot play that game without arguing and yelling, then stop playing it. I will take the game away if I have to come up here again. Understood?" Yami asked.
"Yes, Daddy." Caitlyn and Chris said at the same time.
"I'm glad to hear that." Yami said. He turned and left the room, noticing that Eric was simply reading a book. He went back down and sat on the couch. 'At least Eric does something quiet that doesn't get him in trouble.' Yami thought.
The front door opened.
Yami turned just in time to see Gabrielle, his ten-year-old daughter, running to him.
Gabrielle jumped at him and hugged him.
"Hey, Gabrielle." Yami said.
"Daddy, you're not going to believe it! I made it on the girls' softball team for the fall!" Gabrielle squealed, obviously excited.
Gabrielle had turned out to be a tomboy who loved to play all kinds of sports, which Yami happily played with her.
"I'm glad to hear that, Gabrielle. I told you that you would make the team." Yami said.
Gabrielle smiled brightly.
A moment later, Will came into the room. "Daddy, I made the baseball team!" Will said.
Yami laughed. "Well, it looks like we'll be watching a lot of baseball and softball this fall." Yami said with a smile.
Will and Gabrielle both loved sports.
"Is Papa home?" Will asked.
"No. He hasn't gotten back yet." Yami answered.
"Don't tell Papa, Daddy. I want to tell him." Gabrielle said, begging.
Yami smiled. "I'll let you both tell him." Yami answered.
Will and Gabrielle both smiled before they headed up the stairs to tell their brothers and sister the news.
Yami shook his head. 'Yugi is going to love this.' Yami thought.
In the last ten years, Yugi and Yami had had a very happy life together. They were still living in the house that they had bought when Yugi was pregnant with Gabrielle and Will.
After having the twins, Yugi had decided that he would rather stay at home and take care of the kids than work. He did love his job, but he loved his kids more.
Yami had agreed wholeheartedly and supported Yugi in his decision to quit his job and stay at home. Yami was now the CEO of all of Sennen Incorporated, and he had made the business even more successful as his father had.
After three years together, Yugi and Yami had ended up having more kids, the triplets. The fact that there were three at once was a big shock to everyone, which started the running joke that Yami and Yugi couldn't have a single baby during one pregnancy.
Yugi and Yami loved all their kids, though.
Atemu and Heba were both continuing with their archeological digs. Samuel and Dante were now eleven years old. The two had two other children now. Nicholas Gregory Sennen was eight years old with star-shaped, tri-color hair with no lightening bolt streaks, soft features, and crimson eyes along with tanned skin. Alana Ann Sennen was six years old with long tri-color hair, sharp features, amethyst eyes, and tanned skin. Atemu and Heba were very happy.
Bakura and Ryou were also happy. Ryou had opened his own wedding planning business, and it was flourishing. Bakura's company was still doing great as always. Myra was now almost eleven. The two had another child, a son who had been named Richard Morgan Mao. He was eight. He had Bakura's temperament.
Marik and Malik had eventually started a family of their own. They had three kids. Their oldest was a girl they had named Elli Kay Ishmal, who was nine. The other two were twin boys named Alexander Matthew Ishtar and Benjamin Craig Ishmal, and they were six.
Ta and Tristan were still together, and they continued to live in Domino, Japan. They were still friends with Yami, although that friendship had never gotten back to the point it had been before the betrayal. Still, they had all gotten past that. Jake was now twelve years old, and they had a daughter named Melinda Gene Taylor.
Seto and Joey were also still very happy. Seto was still running KaibaCorp with some help from Mokuba. Seth was now eleven. The two had a daughter as well. Her name was Madelyn Ella Kaiba. She had dirty blonde hair and sapphire eyes. She was now five.
Mokuba and Serenity now had two children themselves. The oldest was a boy named Imari Michael Kaiba. He had Serenity's hair color and Mokuba's eye color. He was seven. The girl was named Katrina Abigail Kaiba. She was five.
Amara and Aknankanon were still living in Egypt although they had started to do some traveling. The two were enjoying being able to spoil their grandchildren.
Solomon was still living and in relatively good health of being in his eighties. He loved his great-grandchildren, and he enjoyed spoiling them as much as Aknankanon and Amara did.
Yami smiled as he thought about all these things. 'I'm really happy with the way my life turned out.' Yami thought. He was truly happy with Yugi, and he wouldn't change it for anything.
The front door opened and closed.
"Welcome back, Yugi." Yami said.
Yugi smiled as he walked into the living room. "Thanks." Yugi said. He was just starting to show that he was pregnant. He walked over and sat down by Yami.
"So, what did the doctor say?" Yami asked, placing a hand on Yugi's stomach.
"That I'm fine." Yugi answered.
"That's good news." Yami said.
"And we did the one thing that everyone said we would never be able to do." Yugi said.
"What's that?" Yami asked.
"We're actually just having one this time." Yugi said.
Yami chuckled at that. "Well, there's goes Marik's theory." Yami said.
Yugi made a face. "I still don't see why he thought that. I mean, I've only been pregnant twice." Yugi said.
"And we already have five kids as a result of that." Yami pointed out.
"Okay. So, you have a point there, but still, there was no reason to say that after only two pregnancies." Yugi said.
Yami chuckled. "Well, we can disprove of the theory now." Yami said. He looked thoughtful and said, "Was the doctor able to tell if the baby is a boy or a girl?"
"No. The baby wasn't turned right. Dr. Sykes said that we might could tell next time." Yugi answered.
"All right." Yami said.
A moment later, Gabrielle and Will ran down the stairs.
"Papa!" the two said.
Yugi turned to them. "No running in the house." Yugi said.
"Sorry." the two said.
"Now, what is it?" Yugi asked.
"I made the softball team for the fall!" Gabrielle said with a smile.
"And I made the baseball team!" Will added.
"That's great, you two. You worked hard for that. We'll be watching you play a lot." Yugi said.
"Thanks." Gabrielle said.
Caitlyn, Chris, and Eric came downstairs then.
"Papa, what did the doctor day?" Caitlyn asked.
"He says that I'm fine, and so is the baby." Yugi answered.
"Are we going to have a brother or a sister?" Eric asked.
"We don't know that yet." Yugi answered.
The kids looked disappointed.
Yami chuckled. "We may find out at the next visit." Yami said.
The kids then started to fan out to do their own thing.
"It would seem that all the kids are just as anxious to find out if the baby is a boy or a girl as well." Yami said.
"I guess so." Yugi said. He smiled. "I'm glad that they are so excited about this baby, though." Yugi said.
"Yes. I agree with you on that." Yami said.
"So, you still don't have a clue as to what you are going to have." Heba said.
Heba and Yugi had met for lunch.
"No, I don't." Yugi said.
"Is that frustrating you?" Heba asked.
"No. I can't say the same for Yami and the kiss, though." Yugi said.
Heba raised an eyebrow. "The kids?" Heba asked.
"Yep. They were disappointed that they don't know if they have a brother or a sister." Yugi answered.
"Well, that's rather unexpected." Heba said.
"So I noticed." Yugi answered.
"What do you want?" Heba asked.
"I don't know. I honestly don't care if it's a boy or a girl. I just want the baby to be healthy." Yugi said.
"I know the feeling." Heba said.
Yugi smiled. "Although I am glad that I can tell Marik that Yami and I can have a pregnancy where I'm just having one child." Yugi said.
"And if you had been pregnant with more than one?" Heba asked.
"I'd have killed Yami." Yugi said, taking a sip of his drink.
"Why kill Yami?" Heba asked.
"Because I'm two old to be having more than one at a time." Yugi answered.
Heba laughed. "Well, it's your own fault for ending up pregnant again. You and Yami should have taken precautions to not get pregnant." Heba said.
"The bad thing is that we did." Yugi said.
Heba looked at him in shock.
Yugi nodded his head. "We were taking precautions, although we might be taking more now." Yugi said.
"I can believe that." Heba said.
"Well, there goes my theory." Marik said.
"See. We can have just one child at a time." Yugi said.
"Well, you two didn't before now." Marik retorted.
"And I was pregnant only twice before now." Yugi said.
"Okay. Point made." Marik said.
"That has to suck not bring able to know what you're having." Joey said.
"It's not as bad you think, Joey." Yugi said.
"Yeah. He's already got two girls and three boys, so it shouldn't matter what he has this time around." Seto added.
Joey glared at him.
"Well, it's good that you two are having another one." Ryou said.
"Ryou, you can stop with the charade. We know that you want to know just as badly as the others do for the simple fact you want to start buying things for the baby." Yami said.
Ryou grinned. "I never said that I didn't want to do that, Yami." Ryou pointed out.
Yugi laughed. "Come on, Yami. We know that that's what they're all waiting for." Yugi said.
"Just wait until Mom and Dad get back from their trip to Europe. They'll go crazy, too." Atemu said.
"Yeah. Mom was pretty excited when we told her that we were having another baby." Yugi agreed.
"Well, better you than me." Malik said.
Everyone shook their heads.
"Yes. We all know that you weren't exactly thrilled with being pregnant." Joey said.
Malik shrugged. "Just not something that I enjoyed." Malik said.
~Two Weeks Later~
Yami was in his office doing some work.
The intercom buzzed.
Yami hit the intercom button and said, "Yes."
"Mr. Sennen, your husband is here to see you." the secretary said.
Yami brightened at that. "Send him in." Yami said.
The doors opened, and Yugi walked into the room. "I hope this isn't a bad time." Yugi said.
"Of course it isn't, Yugi." Yami said.
Yugi shut the doors behind him and walked over to where his husband was.
Yami reached and took Yugi by the wrist, pulling him into his lap, kissing Yugi. "So, what brings you here?" Yami asked.
Yugi smiled at his husband. "Well, I thought that I'd come and tell you since I now know." Yugi said.
"Know what?" Yami asked, rather stumped.
Yugi smiled before he held up the sonogram he had been given at the doctor's office. "We're having a girl." Yugi said.
Yami suddenly smiled brightly. "We are?" Yami asked.
"Yugi, that's great!" Yami said, hugging Yugi tightly.
"I thought so, too." Yugi agreed.
"So, when should we tell the kids?" Yami asked.
"I figure that we can tell them tonight." Yugi answered.
"That sounds good." Yami said. He frowned. "Who's watching the kids, anyway?" Yami asked.
"Heba agreed to watch them for me." Yugi answered.
"Okay." Yami said.
"So, I guess we'll be piled with baby stuff now." Yugi said.
"Nothing knew. After all the other ones, we are prepared for that." Yami said.
"It's just too bad that we didn't keep all the baby stuff we had from before." Yugi said.
"Yeah. We thought that we were done having kids until this surprise came along." Yami said, placing a hand on Yugi's stomach.
"Well, surprises do happen." Yugi agreed.
"So, what are we naming this one?" Yami asked, leaning back in his chair.
"What? Are you leaving naming this child to me?" Yugi asked.
"Of course not. We always bounce names off each other before we make the final decision." Yami replied.
"I know, Yami." Yugi said. He looked thoughtful; for a moment before he said, "I had actually thought about the name Arielle."
"Arielle?" Yami asked.
"It was different, and it's a pretty name." Yugi said.
"It is." Yami said. He smiled. "I actually like that name. What about Christine for her middle name?" Yami asked.
"Arielle Christine. I like it." Yugi agreed.
Yami chuckled. "And to think it took us forever to name our kids before." Yami said.
Yugi smiled. "Well, we're used to it by now. This is number six." Yugi said.
"Yeah. The last one." Yami said.
"It had better be the last one." Yugi said.
Yami smiled. "It is, Yugi. I already know that you would kill me if we had anymore than this." Yami said.
"Yes. I would." Yugi agreed.
"Yes! We get a baby sister!" Caitlyn said.
"That's cool." Eric said.
"Glad you think so." Yugi said.
"What are you naming her?" Will asked.
"We decided on Arielle Christine." Yugi answered.
"Can't wait until she gets here." Chris said.
"Well, you've got a few months before that one happens, Chris." Yugi said.
"Can we help get the nursery ready?" Gabrielle asked.
"Of course you can. We could use all the help we can get." Yami said.
~Three Months Later~
Yugi and Yami, along with Caitlyn, Eric, and Chris, were at the ball field.
On that particular date, Gabrielle and Will had a ball game. It was rare that the two plated on the same day.
Thankfully, their games were at an hour apart, so they would be able to watch both games.
Currently, they were watching Gabrielle's game.
"Gabrielle has done good." Yugi said.
"She's done better than good. She's three for four with a two-run homer." Yami said.
Yugi looked at Yami.
"Sorry. I forget that you're not too into baseball." Yami said.
"No. I'm not." Yugi said.
The game ended with Gabrielle's team winning.
"That was great, Gabrielle." Will said.
"Thanks, Will. I hope your team has the same luck mine did." Gabrielle said.
To Yugi and Yami's surprise, Will and Gabrielle had ended up being the best of friends as well as twins. They were always supporting the other, something that they were both pleased with.
The group headed over to watch Will's game, where he was a pitcher.
Will's team won as well.
"Great pitching, Will." Gabrielle said, giving Will a high-five.
"Thanks. It was great." Will said.
"I'll say. You gave up two hits and no runs." Yami said.
"Thanks, Dad." Will said.
"Man. Both of you won today." Caitlyn said.
"We just have good teams." Gabrielle said.
"Okay. Who's up for ice cream to celebrate?" Yami asked.
"I am!" all five kids said before heading for the minivan.
Yugi and Yami trailed behind.
Yami turned to Yugi. "Are you okay?" Yami asked.
"Tired, not to mention the fact that my back and feet are killing me." Yugi said.
"Do we need to go home?" Yami asked, worried.
"No, Yami. You promised the kids ice cream, and that's what they'll get." Yugi said.
"All right, but tell me if you need to go home." Yami said.
"I will." Yugi assured him.
The two got in the van and headed for an ice cream parlor.
~One Month Later~
Yugi was at home in the living room. He could have the baby at any time now.
Which meant that Yami wasn't leaving.
"Need anything, Yugi?" Yami asked.
"No, Yami, and stop asking. You've asked me twenty times in the last thirty minutes." Yugi said.
"Sorry." Yami said as he sat down by Yugi.
"I don't mean to snap, but you're being just a little overbearing at the moment." Yugi said.
Yami grinned. "I know, and I'm sorry for it. I just can't help it. I mean, you could have Arielle at any time." Yami said.
"Yes. I know." Yugi replied.
"In any case, how about a massage?" Yami asked, knowing how Yugi's back bothered him after two other pregnancies.
"Well, I guess since there's just one baby this time around, my back doesn't bother me quite as badly, but a massage does sound good right about now." Yugi said.
Yami smiled. "Then I'm glad to help." Yami said. He then proceeded to give his husband a massage.
~One Week Later~
Yugi was in a regular room at the hospital after spending ten hours in labor and giving birth to a healthy baby girl.
"She's beautiful." Yami said, looking at his daughter that Yugi was holding.
"I know." Yugi agreed.
Arielle had tri-color hair with streaks of blonde going all the way through. She also had sharp features and amethyst eyes.
"I'm sure that the kids are going to go crazy when they see her." Yami said.
"Where are they?" Yugi asked.
"Well, you were in labor for a long time, and there was no way to keep them all calm while you were in labor, so Atemu and Heba took them home. They were going to watch them for us until you and Arielle came home from the hospital." Yami said.
"That's good." Yugi said.
"I know." Yami said as he sat down on the bed beside Yugi.
The two were happy to spend a few quiet moments with their newborn daughter.
~Two Months Later~
Everyone had gathered together with their families in the park on a Saturday to have a picnic together and hang out.
All of the kids were out playing together with their parents keeping a close on them.
Even Mahado, Isis, Karim, Shada, and Mana had come.
Isis and Mahado now had a seven hear old daughter named Michelle. She looked like her mother, but had her father's eye color.
Karim and Shada had a six-year-old boy named Karl. He had Karim's hairstyle with Shada's eye color.
Mana was still single, although she was dating now. He was unable to come to the gathering.
"It's nice to just be able to come out here and relax." Yami said.
"Yeah. It beats sitting in an office all day." Atemu said.
"Okay. Quit ragging on me and Yami about having office jobs." Seto said.
"I wasn't. Atemu said.
"Atemu's been stuck working in an office for the last few weeks. He's not happy about it." Heba explained.
Everyone laughed at that.
Atemu scowled. "It's not funny." Atemu said.
"In any case, it is good to come out." Isis said.
Amara looked up. "And it's a good day for it." Amara said.
The sky was sunny, and there wasn't a loud in sight.
"Yeah. It's a good thing that Cairo doesn't have much of a winter." Joey said.
"We do have one." Malik protested.
"Not like in Japan and other places." Joey said.
"He's right about that." Mokuba added.
"In any case, it doesn't matter. What's important is that we are all here together, and we can have fun." Yugi said. He was busy feeding Arielle.
"Indeed." Solomon agreed.
Everyone did enjoy getting together every now and then to have a picnic and spend time together.
It wasn't long before all the kids were called over to eat.
Yami glanced over at Yugi and smile as he watched Yugi feed their two-month-old daughter. He then looked over at where their other five children he had had with Yugi were.
Yami may have suffered an ending with Tea, but he found a new beginning with Yugi.
Yami was happy with the way his life had turned out.
Now, Yami was glad that he had found out that Tea cheated on him because it gave him Yugi, the man that he loved more than anything.
And Yami was happy with that.
Hope you liked it.
As I said at the start, this is the last chapter. I want to thank everyone who read, reviewed, favorited, and alerted this story. Thanks for all the support.
For now, I have decided that I am going to work on Starting Over and Darkness in the Light. There are a few small stories I have started in my spare time, so I might work on those some. I probably won't work on another big story for a little bit and focus on the other two for the time being.
