Chapter 1- Return to Domino
Yami stepped off of the plane and walked into the airport terminal.
It was the first time that he had been back in Domino in nearly three years. It was good to be back.
Yami got his bags and left the terminal. He hailed a taxi outside.
"Where to?" the driver asked.
"Yoshimori's Café." Yami answered.
The driver drove off.
On the way over, Yami began thinking.
Three years before, Yami had ended things with Yugi, who he had been dating at the time, to follow Anzu to America.
Yugi had begged Yami not to leave, but Yami had ignored Yugi and left anyway, breaking his little one's heart.
Yami believed that he had been in love with Anzu and had been dating her behind Yugi's back for months. Yami wanted to be with Anzu, so he had left with Anzu to America. They had gotten married three months after arriving in New York.
Yami had believed that they were happy. He was happy with Anzu.
At least, that's what he had told himself.
Yami knew that there had been an emptiness in his heart, although he was in denial about it. He hadn't wanted to admit that he truly did not love Anzu and that he wanted to be with Yugi again.
'What a fool I was.' Yami thought as he remembered what had happened next.
Anzu had gotten pregnant.
Yami was excited because he thought he was going to be a father.
Until the baby was born.
Anzu had just given birth to a healthy baby boy.
Originally, Yami had been thrilled.
Then he saw the boy.
The baby had black hair and green eyes. He looked nothing like neither Yami nor Anzu.
Anzu was already fast asleep with a content smile on her face.
Yami wasn't happy. 'It's not mine.' Yami thought.
Wanting confirmation, Yami ordered a DNA test done on the child.
'That was the smartest thing I did. I can't believe that Anzu had been cheating on me with Otogi. I thought that she loved me, but obviously all she loved was my body. She never cared about me.' Yami thought.
Yami walked into the hospital room to find that Anzu's parents were in the room with her and the baby.
Anzu smiled nervously at Yami. She had seen the child, and she knew exactly what Yami was thinking. "Hi, Yami. What do you think of your son?" Anzu asked.
"You mean your son." Yami said.
"What do you mean?" Mr. Mazaki asked.
"Look at your grandson. You can tell that child isn't mine, and this is the proof." Yami said, holding up a piece of paper. His crimson eyes were flaming with barely controlled anger.
"What's that?" Mrs. Mazaki asked, fearful.
"A DNA test. It proves that I am not the father of that child." Yami said.
"Yami, please. I can explain." Anzu said, sounding desperate.
"You don't have to. It is obvious that I don't satisfy you, so you cheated on me and got knocked up by some other guy." Yami said angrily.
"Don't talk to her like that!" Mr. Mazaki snapped. He knew Yami was right. He had looked at the child and knew that to be true, but Anzu was still his daughter.
"It's doesn't matter anyway. I've already dealt with it." Yami said.
"What are you talking about?" Anzu asked.
"I have filed for a divorce, and I have listed adultery on your part for the reason for the divorce." Yami said.
"You can't!" Anzu cried. She hadn't wanted to lose Yami. She had been careful to use protection while conducting her affairs. She had been sure when she had become pregnant that the child was Yami's. She hadn't considered the possibly that her lover was the one responsible for getting her pregnant.
"I already have. I want you to move out as soon as possible." Yami said.
"There's no need-" Mr. Mazaki started, hoping to stop this.
"Mr. Mazaki, I will not remain married to your daughter when she has cheated on me and has a child by another man. You can't change my mind. Quite frankly, I don't give a damn what this does to your daughter's reputation nor the reputation of your company, and just so you know, I intend to have the terms of the prenuptial agreement met. I will see you in court." Yami said. He turned and left, ignoring Anzu's cries for Yami to come back.
Yami was a respectable lawyer, so he knew everything there was about the divorce. Instead of hiring one, he had handled it all himself and got everything he wanted. He had known Anzu would fight it, and fight she did.
Yami wasn't surprised by Anzu's words in the court room, or rather, her lawyer's words, but he knew better. "Your Honor." Yami said, standing.
"Yes, Mr. Sennen." Judge Roberts said.
"I protest the demands that are being made for child support." Yami sad.
"Your Honor," Mr. Desmond, Anzu's lawyer, said, "Mr. Sennen is divorcing his wife, leaving her a child. Child support is necessary."
"Your Honor, I am only required by law to pay child support if the child is mine. A DNA test has already confirmed that the boy my wife gave birth to was not mine." Yami said calmly.
"Is this true, Mr. Desmond?" Judge Roberts asked.
"Well, yes, but-" Mr. Desmond tried.
"Then there will be no child support. If she wishes child support, then she will have to get it from the biological child of her son. Mr. Sennen is not responsible for child support." Judge Roberts said.
"Your Honor, my wife and I signed a prenuptial agreement. I ask that the terms of it be kept." Yami said.
"So agreed." Judge Roberts said.
Anzu looked horrified.
"Since Mrs. Sennen as been proven to have committed adultery while married, Mr. Sennen will receive the amount promised." Judge Roberts said.
"Your Honor, my client wants him to pay her alimony." Mr. Desmond said.
"Your Honor, my wife has moved in with her parents. They own a company, therefore, there is more than enough for Anzu to live off of without alimony. She also has access to her trust fund." Yami said.
"Agreed. There will be no alimony." Judge Roberts agreed.
Yami was just glad that he had gotten what he wanted. He had divorced his cheating wife. He didn't have to pay her alimony because of Anzu's finances, and he wouldn't have to deal with her again.
What had surprised Yami was who had been Anzu's lover.
"You?!" Yami snarled.
Otogi looked at Yami nervously. Otogi had known Yami for years, and he knew his temper. "Yami, listen-" Otogi tried.
"Don't! You were screwing my wife, knowing damn well she was married to me. You were at our wedding! I can't believe you would betray me like this!" Yami growled angrily.
Anzu was scared. She had never seen Yami so livid before. "Yami, please-" Anzu started, tears in her eyes.
"Don't, Anzu. Anything you say will only make me angrier. You cheated on me, we are getting divorced, and I have no obligation to you. Get your things and get out." Yami said.
"But-" Anzu started.
Yami glared at the woman with such anger and hatred that Anzu flinched. "Be out of my house before I return, or you will regret it, and if it takes me getting a court order to get your slutty ass out of my house, so be it!" Yami shouted in anger.
Anzu was now terrified.
"Other than in the courtroom, I don't want to see you again." Yami said before he stormed out.
After the divorce had been finalized, Yami had sold his house in New York, and decided to return to Domino, Japan. He needed to go back home.
Now he was back, but he wasn't sure what he was coming back to.
"We're here." the driver said.
Yami looked to see that they were at Yoshimori's Café. He paid the driver and got out, getting his luggage as well.
Yami turned to face Katsyua Jonouchi, a once friend.
Jonouchi, who was Yugi's best friend, looked at Yami impassively. "You can put your things in my car while we eat." Jonouchi said.
Yami nodded and did what he said.
Jonouchi, better known as Jou, had been the one to get Yugi and Yami together in high school in the first place. He had been deeply angered when he found out that Yami had left Yugi for Anzu. He had been even angrier when he found out that Yami had been seeing Anzu behind Yugi's back for months.
Yami had been surprised when Jou, along with Seto Kaiba, Jou's friend/enemy, showed up on his and Anzu's doorstep in New York.
"Jou?" Yami asked.
A punch in the face was all that Yami received.
"Yami!" Anzu cried.
"You lowlife bastard! I can't believe you left Yugi for her! Did you forget that she was a slut back in high school?!" Jou shouted.
"She changed!" Yami retorted.
"And that gives you the right to screw her behind Yugi's back for months and then break up with him. You destroyed him!" Jou shouted.
"I can't help what I feel." Yami said.
"You can't help what you want. Anzu's going to cheat on you, and I hope it hurts. Maybe you'll know then what Yugi went through!" Jou spat before storming off.
Seto looked at Yami with cold eyes. "I hope you're happy with your choice." Seto said before leaving.
'I made the biggest mistake of my life.' Yami thought as they sat down.
"How was the flight?" Jou asked.
"Long. It's good to be back." Yami said.
"After three years." Jou said coldly.
"Yeah." Yami said quietly.
The sat there in silence.
"Um, how are you, Jou?" Yami asked.
"Fine. Seto and I are getting married in a few months." Jou said.
"How long have you two been together?" Yami asked.
"Almost two years." Jou said.
"Congratulations. I heard you two have a son." Yami said.
"Yeah. Seth. He's a miniature version of Seto." Jou said.
The two ordered their food when a waitress came.
"I heard about the divorce." Jou said.
"You said as much on the phone." Yami said.
"I know it won't mean much, but I am sorry for what she did. She had no right." Jou said.
"Yeah. I know." Yami said.
"Was it true that the kid wasn't yours?" Jou asked.
"Yeah. The boy looked like his father." Yami said.
"At least you know." Jou said.
"Otogi was the father." Yami said quietly.
"He was?" Jou asked, surprised.
"No surprise there. I mean, Otogi always wanted her." Jou said.
"I know." Yami said.
Jou looked at Yami. "I can't say I think you don't deserve it." Jou said.
"I know. You were right. She didn't change." Yami said.
"You knew that, too. You just didn't want to admit it." Jou said.
"Yeah. I know." Yami said.
"What made you decide to come back to Domino?" Jou asked.
"No where else to go." Yami said.
"You could have gone to Egypt." Jou said, knowing that's where Yami was originally from.
"I don't remember Egypt. Domino was the only home I knew." Yami said.
"Planning to set up a practice here?" Jou asked.
"I thought about it." Yami replied.
Yami decided to not beat around the bush. "Why did you want to meet me, Jou?" Yami asked.
"Did you love her?" Jou asked, bluntly.
"What?" Yami asked, taken off guard.
"Did you love her?" Jou asked.
"I thought I did." Yami said quietly.
"That's a no then." Jou said.
Yami sighed. "What do you want me to say? That I made a mistake in choosing Anzu? I already know that. I should have known what would happen, but I didn't listen. I was a fool, and I chose a woman who cheated on me with five different guys that I know of." Yami said.
"Five?" Jou asked.
"Didn't know that." Jou said.
Yami sighed. "I made a mistake in leaving Yugi. I admit that. Yugi would have never done this. If he had found someone else while we were together, he would have broken things off with me. I was wrong." Yami said.
"Cheating is never right, Yami." Jou said.
"I didn't actually cheat." Yami said.
"Yami, it doesn't matter if you are just on a date with someone else. If your with one person while dating another, it's cheating. Sex has nothing to do with cheating. It's cheating even if you just date." Jou said.
"I know." Yami said quietly.
"Why did you want to leave Yugi?" Jou asked.
"I don't know. Yugi was everything I wanted in a person. I knew that. He was kind, smart, loving, compassionate, and so much more. Anzu was nothing. The exact opposite. She was conniving, controlling, jealous, manipulative, and a bitch." Yami said.
"Not a good trade." Jou commented.
"No. She wasn't." Yami agreed.
Jou was quiet a moment. "It destroyed him." Jou said.
"I know." Yami said.
"No, you don't. You weren't here. I spent weeks living with him, watching him cry himself to sleep every night. He would say that it was his fault. That he wasn't good enough for you. That he deserved this pain." Jou said.
"It wasn't his fault." Yami said.
"He doesn't believe it. Even now." Jou said.
Yami sighed. He hated this.
"He tried to kill himself." Jou said.
Yami started. "W-What?" Yami choked out.
"Yugi tried to kill himself. He was convinced that you hated him, so he decided to end it. Downed a whole bottle of sleeping pills. Honda got there and managed to get him to a hospital in time. I started to live with him after that." Jou said.
"You live with Seto now. Who's watching him?" Yami asked.
"Bakura and Ryou live with him now. After Gramps died, the Game Shop was lonely for him alone. He turned the upstairs into another part of the shop, and he built a house on property behind the Game Shop. Turns out Gramps owned more land than we thought, and Yugi inherited it." Jou said.
"Oh." Yami said.
"When Marik and Malik are in town, they stay there, too." Jou said.
"That's good." Yami said.
Their food soon arrived.
"Yami, do you still love Yugi?" Jou asked.
"Yes." Yami said without hesitation.
Jou shook his head. "I still can't understand why you left him for her." Jou said.
"I thought I loved her. She somehow convinced me of that. I was stupid. I made a mistake. One I will regret for the rest of my life." Yami said.
"Has Yugi found someone new?" Yami asked.
"No. He's only had one relationship since you, and that was over two years ago." Jou said.
"Oh." Yami said.
Jou sighed. "Yami, he had a one night stand once." Jou said.
Yami looked startled. "This guy didn't hurt him, did he? I mean, a one night stand can hurt someone." Yami said.
"Calm down. The one night stand was me." Jou said.
Yami looked incredulous. "You? I thought you two were just best friends." Yami said.
"We are. Look. He was heartbroken and needed a distraction. I took him out one night. He got drunk. I got drunk. We got back to the house. It happened. Never happened again." Jou said.
"And the relationship?" Yami asked.
"Yugi and Seto got together for about three months. Didn't last." Jou said.
"Seto? Not one I would have thought." Yami said.
"Me, either. Yugi and Seto dated, but they decided it would be better if they were friends." Jou said. He sighed. "Honestly, Yugi figured out how I felt about Seto and pushed me to tell him. I did, and here we are." Jou said.
Jou glared at Yami. "Listen. If you want to try and win Yugi back, I won't stop you, but you hurt him again, you'll be six feet under. Got it?" Jou asked.
"Good." Jou said as they ate.
Yami kept looking at Jou. "Are we okay?" Yami finally asked.
Jou thought a moment. "No, but we might get there. I'm still pissed, but I'll get over it. I'm more pissed at Anzu. She's the cause of this, even if you did fall for her charms." Jou said.
"Look. I'm warning ya to steer clear of Marik and Bakura, though. They want your blood." Jou said.
Yami nodded. He knew that Bakura and Marik were protective of Yugi, and he knew he didn't want to cross them any time soon.
"Where are you staying?" Jou asked.
"I'm staying at the Domino Plaza Hotel until I find a place." Yami said.
Jou nodded. "I'll drive ya." Jou said.
The two paid the bill and left.
"Listen, Yami. Like I said, I won't stop you from trying to win Yugi back, but it won't be easy. He won't trust ya easily." Jou said.
"He shouldn't." Yami said.
"Yeah. I know. You'll have to work hard to win him back. I ain't saying I like the thought of you two together again given what happened, but I won't stop it. Just know that I'm protecting Yugi, too." Jou said.
Jou handed Yami a piece of paper. "Yugi's home number. I'd get all your affairs settled before you talk to him." Jou said.
"I will." Yami said. He knew that he would have to work up the courage to call Yugi.
Jou nodded. "Good. Come on." Jou said.
The two walked to Jou's car and got in.
"By the way, how did Anzu take the divorce?" Jou asked.
"Not well. She was royally pissed when she got nothing from the divorce." Yami said.
"I can't believe you! You're leaving me with nothing." Anzu screamed.
Yami didn't flinch. "Anzu, you were the one who chose to cheat, which resulted in this divorce." Yami said.
"You're leaving me with a child with no money and no job!" Anzu shouted.
"Anzu, you knew that you would get nothing if you were found to have been unfaithful. You were." Yami said.
"How do you expect me to raise a child without help?!" Anzu demanded.
"It's not my child, so I don't care. You're living with your parents now. They can help you. Besides, the boy is Otogi's, so get him to help you with him. It's his responsibility. Not mine." Yami said.
"I don't want him!" Anzu shouted.
"Well, too bad. You won't get me. That ended once you cheated." Yami said.
"Why can't you let it go?!" Anzu shrieked.
"Because it was more than one guy." Yami said.
Anzu looked more than pissed.
"Anzu, you chose to cheat, you chose to lie, and you chose go back to your ways of a whore. Don't blame me." Yami said.
Anzu growled. "I deserve better than you!" Anzu shouted.
"Actually, I deserve better than you." Yami said. He thought a moment and said, "I had better than you."
"You're talking about that rut?!" Anzu shouted.
"Don't call Yugi that, and yes! Yugi would have never cheated on me. I was a fool to leave him for you. I should have known you hadn't changed from high school. But I don't have to deal with this now. We are divorced. You don't have access to anything that's mine, now I want you to leave." Yami said.
"Why?" Anzu demanded.
"Because there are prospective buyers coming, and I don't want you here.' Yami said.
"You're selling the house?! We bought this house together!" Anzu shrieked.
"Actually, Anzu, I bought the house. You were just there. And I'm moving back to Japan, so I'm not going to need this house." Yami said.
"Now, please leave before I call the police and have you arrested for trespassing." Yami said.
Anzu glared at him before storming out.
"Talk about a bitch." Jou said
"I know. She even tried to get a lawyer to stop me from selling the house, thinking that I would have to stay and she could win me back." Yami said.
"She couldn't have a lawyer stop you from selling the house. Not if her name wasn't on the deed." Jou said.
"It wasn't." Yami assured him.
"So, Anzu keep trying?" Jou asked.
Yami nodded. "It was the same thing, but my mind was made up. Her parents tried to talk me out of the divorce to no avail." Yami said.
"They didn't want their company's name dragged through the mud." Jou said.
"The family name sure was. I didn't really care, either." Yami said.
"So, if she shows up here, what are you going to do?" Jou asked.
"The same as before. I won't go back to her." Yami said.
"Good. At least you're on the right track there." Jou said.
They arrived at the hotel.
"Thanks, Jou." Yami said, getting out.
"Need any help?" Jou asked, seeing Yami get the luggage.
"No. I got it. Thanks." Yami said.
"Look. My cell number is the same if you ever want to talk." Jou said.
Jou drove off.
'We may not be good friends again, but at least we're trying.' Yami thought.
Hours later, Yami was in his hotel room. He looked at a picture of him and Yugi from when they were still together.
'I was a fool to leave you, Yugi. I can't believe I left you for a woman like Anzu.' Yami thought.
Yami knew that he had been miserable while with Anzu. He just was in denial about it. He was also in denial about not regretting leaving Yugi.
Now, he admitted it openly.
Yami gently traced Yugi's face. 'I am going to try and win you back, Yugi. It may take some time, but I will do it. I just hope you can find it in your heart to give me another chance. If we can't be lovers, I hope we can at least be friends.' Yami thought.
Yami set the picture aside and lay down to go to sleep for the night.
He had dreams about Yugi.
Hope you liked it. Sorry about all the flasgbacks. Just letting you see some of the reason Yami returned to Domino.
Next: Yami and Yugi meet again for the first time in three years.
