Chapter 15- Happy Lives
~Fifteen Years Later~
Yugi was standing in the kitchen making sandwiches which he then put onto the three plates he had sitting on the counter beside him. He then put the sandwich meat back into the refrigerator. He then put some potato chips into the plates before he set all three plates onto the kitchen table. He then got three drinks out of the refrigerator and put them at each plate.
There was the sound of laughing coming from upstairs.
"Selena! Katrina! Nick! Lunch!" Yugi called upstairs.
The sound of feet was heard pounding on the stairs before three children ran into the room.
"Thank you, Papa." all three said before they headed over to the table and sat down.
Yugi smiled at the three.
Three years after Yugi had started back to his ice-skating, Yugi had found out that he was pregnant.
Yami and Atemu had been thrilled by the news.
They had ended up having twins. The boy had star-shaped, tri-color hair with no lightening bolt streaks, maroon eyes; soft features with large, round eyes, and pale skin. He had been named Brian. The girl had had streaks of blonde through her tri-color hair, sharp features with narrow, amethyst eyes, and lightly tanned skin. She had been named Alexandria. They were now twelve.
Yugi had taken a year off from ice-skating before going back.
Four years later, Yugi had gotten pregnant again. This time, he had given birth to twin boys. One boy had star-shaped, tri-color hair with lightening bold streaks, sharp features with narrow, crimson eyes, and pale skin. He had been named Trent. The other boy had had star-shaped, tri-color hair with no lightening bolt streaks, soft features with round, wide amethyst eyes, and deeply tanned skin. He had been named Terrance. They were now eight.
Four year later, Yugi had gotten pregnant again and given birth to triplets this time. One girl had tri-color hair with no blonde streaks, round, wide maroon eyes, and deeply tanned skin. She had been named Selena. The other girl had tri-color hair with blonde streaks, sharp features with narrow, amethyst eyes, and lightly tanned skin. She had been named Katrina. The boy had had star-shaped, tri-color hair with lightening bolt streaks, soft features with round, wide eyes, and lightly tanned skin. He had one amethyst eye and one crimson eye. He had been named Nicolas, Nick for short. They were now four.
After that, Yugi had firmly said no more kids.
As for Yugi's ice skating career, it had gone great. He had skated until he was twenty-nine. After ten international titles along with four national titles plus five Olympics medals, one bronze, three silvers, and two gold, Yugi had decided that it was time for him to retire and focus on his family.
"Papa, when is Daddy getting home?" Katrina asked.
"You know that Daddy has to work late sometimes. He'll be home by six at the latest, though." Yugi answered.
Yami, known as Daddy to the kids, had decided to become a lawyer. He handled mainly civil cases and worked a lot, but he always made time for his family. He had a thriving practice and was a well-respected lawyer with a reputation for rarely losing.
As for Atemu, he had excelled at cooking so much that he owned his own five-star restaurant. It was called Ancient Wonders because the interior had the look of different times in history, depending on the part of the restaurant that you were seated in.
"Eat your lunch and then you can go outside." Yugi said.
The three kids nodded and started eating.
Yugi sat down as well and started to eat with them.
"Yugi, I'm home!" Yami called later that day as he walked into the house.
"Daddy!" Katrina, Nick, and Selena cried as they ran to him.
Yami chuckled and hugged all three of them. "Hello, kids." Yami said.
Yugi walked out of the kitchen. "Just in time for dinner. Now, if the other one will get here soon, we can eat." Yugi said.
"Where are-" Yami started.
"The other four are upstairs. Brian is going to be grounded." Yugi said.
"Fighting again?" Yami asked.
"Yes. It was just my luck that Brian would inherit his fathers' famous temper." Yugi said, shaking his head.
Yami chuckled. "At least you don't have to worry about him being picked on when he gets to high school." Yami said.
"No, but I will have to worry every time I get a call from he school." Yugi said.
Yami shrugged. "We'll deal with it when it comes." Yami said.
A few moments later, Atemu arrived home and was jumped by the triplets as well.
"Kids! Dinner!" Yugi called upstairs.
A few moments later, the other four kids came downstairs, and the family sat around to eat dinner.
That night, Yugi, Yami and Atemu were all sitting around the living room after all of the kids went to bed.
"Peace at last." Yugi said, leaning against Atemu.
"I guess you do get tired easily, don't you?" Yami asked.
"You have no idea." Yugi said.
"Do you regret retiring when you did?" Atemu asked.
"Not in the least. I love my family, and it was time for me to step down and let other skaters have their chance at the spotlight." Yugi said.
Yami chuckled. "You do keep the house clean." Yami said.
"And that's a feat in itself." Yugi agreed.
With such a large family, the three had a three-story house.
The top floor only had two bedrooms, so Alexandria and Brian had those rooms.
There were three rooms on the second floor. Trent and Terrance had two of the rooms, and the other one was open.
The master bedroom was on the first floor, and that was Yugi, Yami, and Atemu's room. There were two other rooms on the first floor. Selena and Katrina shared one while Nick had the other room.
"So, did either one of you happen to check your e-mails today?" Atemu asked.
"You know that I never have the chance to do something like that." Yugi said.
Yami chuckled. "Well, I did." Yami said.
"And what was so important?" Yugi asked.
"Well, we got an e-mail from Seto." Atemu said.
"Oh. About the annual get-together." Yugi said.
"Exactly." Atemu said.
"So, when and where?" Yugi asked.
"It's going to be at Kaibaland on June 10th. Seto's going to have a section roped off for us all to sit at." Atemu said.
"Well, the kids are going to love that." Yugi said.
Yami chuckled. "I actually talked to Seto about it. He told me that that's the point. Since the youngest children among us are four, he figured that Kaibaland would be the perfect place. The kids will love going, and we all will, too." Yami said.
Every year, the entire group set up a date and place for the friends to all gather together and talk. They would spend time together and catch up on everything. Everyone loved it, and they had done it for fifteen years.
"Well, at least Seto set it up for after school lets out." Yugi said.
"Yeah. That will be the perfect way to start the summer." Yami agreed.
The rest of the school year had seemed to fly by, and it was now summertime.
Alexandria, Brian, Trent, and Terrance all came running into the house since they were out of school for the day. They rode the bus.
"Papa! We're home!" Alexandria called.
Yugi stepped out of the kitchen to see them. "So, how was the last day of school?" Yugi asked.
"It was fine." Alexandria said.
Brian scowled. "I wish that we didn't have to have exams on the last day of school." Brian said.
"Well, at least you don't go to school and sit around all day waiting for it to end." Yugi said.
"I guess." Brian agreed.
"Now, since it's a half day, I've gotten lunch ready." Yugi said.
The four kids walked into the kitchen and found that Selena, Katrina, and Nick were already sitting down eating.
"What did you make?" Trent asked.
"I heated up the vegetable soup from last night." Yugi said.
The four kids look rather disappointed.
Yugi chuckled. "Don't worry. Since today was the last day of school, I decided that we'll order pizza fro dinner tonight." Yugi said.
"Yes!" all seven kids excitedly.
Yugi chuckled. "I thought that you would like that." Yugi said.
The kids started eating.
The phone rang.
Yugi walked over and picked it up. "Hello?" Yugi said.
"Hey, Yugi." a soft voice said.
Yugi smiled. He recognized the voice. "Hey, Ryou. What's going on?" Yugi asked.
"Well, I was wondering if you had heard about the get-together." Ryou said.
"Yeah. We got the e-mail from Seto not long ago." Yugi replied.
"Are the kids excited?" Ryou asked.
"We haven't told them yet." Yugi said in a low voice so that the kids couldn't hear what he said.
"Really? Why?" Ryou asked.
"We wanted it to be a surprise. After all, it'll be great for the kids to be surprised on this now that school is out." Yugi said.
"I suppose so. Are you telling them tonight?" Ryou asked.
"That's the plan." Yug said.
"Okay. Well, I'll be seeing you in a week, Yugi." Ryou said.
"Okay, Ryou. Bye." Yugi said before he hung up.
"Who was that, Papa?" Selena asked.
"That was Ryou calling." Yugi said.
"When are we going to see everyone again?" Terrance asked.
"Before long, Terrance. Don't worry about it." Yugi said.
"Okay." Terrance said.
'I need to wait for Yami and Atemu before I tell them the news.' Yugi thought.
"WE ARE!" all of the kids shouted in reaction to the news that they would be going to Kaibaland then following week.
Yami chuckled. "Yes, we are. We'll be going on the 10th." Yami answered.
"Awesome!" Brian exclaimed.
Alexandria clapped her hands together. "That's going to be so much fun!" Alexandria added.
"Are the other kids going to be there?" Katrina asked.
"Yes, Katrina. They are. Everyone is going to be there." Atemu answered.
"Cool!" Trent and Terrance said.
The kids soon went to bed.
"I knew that they were going to be really excited about this." Yami said.
"Yeah. We all know how much they like Kaibaland." Atemu said.
"It'll be nice for them to be able to go, though." Yugi said.
Yami and Atemu agreed with him on that.
~Kaibaland, June 10th~
It was the day for the group of friends to meet up, so everyone had come into town so that they could have their get-together at Kaibaland.
Yugi, Yami, and Atemu all arrived at the park and headed for the area that they had been told was roped off for them.
There, they saw Joey, Seth, and Seto were already there with their four kids.
Joey had gotten pregnant after they had been out of high school for two years. He had given birth to twins, a boy and a girl. The boy had brown hair, honey-brown eyes, and had a dark tan. He had been named Drayton. He was called Drake for short. The girl had blonde hair and blue eyes with pale skin. She had been named Sarah. They were now thirteen. Five years later, Joey had gotten pregnant again and given birth to twin boys. Both boys looked exactly like Seto and Seth only Zachariah had tanned skin and Manuel had pale skin. They were now eight.
"Hey, guys!" Joey called, waving them over.
They walked over to their friends.
"Hey, Joey. You're looking good." Atemu said.
"Thanks." Joey said.
"Any idea where the others are?" Seto asked, impatient as ever.
"Nope, but they'll be here." Yugi said.
The kids all started talking.
It wasn't long before Ryou, Bakura, and Akefia arrived with their two kids.
Ryou had gotten pregnant seven years after high school. However, he had had a rough pregnancy and nearly died trying to give birth. The doctor had told them that he might not survive if he were ever to have any more children, so Ryou had undergone surgery to prevent him from having any more kids. Bakura and Akefia hadn't wanted to take the chance.
Ryou had given birth to two healthy boys. Both look like them only one had deeply tanned skin while the other was pale. The pale one was named Brandon, and the tanned one was named Xavier. They were eight.
"Let's get this over with." Bakura said.
"Here, here." Seth agreed.
"Aw, come on. Try to have fun." Ryou said.
"Yeah. It's not like we do this very often." Joey agreed.
"Yeah. We know, puppy." Seth said.
Marik, Malik, and Mariku arrived next with their three kids. Malik hadn't been willing to have any more kids after the first time. They had two boys who looked like them. One was pale and was named Geoffrey. The other was tanned and was named Jerry. The third one had been a girl who was tanned and named Emily. They were all four.
"And, as always, we're waiting on Tea, Duke, and Tristan." Seto said.
"It's wouldn't be a gathering if they weren't the ones who were late." Atemu said.
"We don't need them to be the ones who are always late. " Mariku said.
Finally, the other three arrived with their children. Tea, Duke, and Tristan all had four kids. One boy had black hair and blue eyes. He was named Donavan. One girl had brown hair and brown eyes. She was named Camille. Donavan and Camille were twins who were twelve. The other two were also twins. One had brown hair and green eyes, and she was named Faith. The other was a boy with brown hair and blue eyes and named Terrell. They were five.
"Well, we're all here now." Joey said, smiling.
"Yeah. Yeah." Seto sad.
"Can we go and do stuff now?" Brian asked.
"Yeah! We can!" Joey said with a smile.
'He'll never change.' Yami thought, seeing that Joey was as eager to have fun as all the kids were.
Since there were different age groups, different people took different kids to areas they wanted to go.
~Three Hours Later~
After playing games and riding rides for three hours, everyone was ready to sit down and eat their lunch. They had gone back to where they met up at.
The kids all sat at different tabled to walk with kids their own age.
"Remind you of the groups we had in high school?" Joey asked.
"Not really. They're different ages, so they're going to want to talk to the ones that are their own age, Joey." Yugi said.
"But it'll end up happening." Ryou said.
"So, how's everyone doing?" Tea asked.
Everyone started talking about their lives.
"You know, Yugi. We live in America, and people over there are still talking about your ice skating." Tristan said.
Yugi laughed. "I can't help that I was good, Tristan." Yugi said.
"I know." Tristan said.
"I know that we're doing fine." Seto said.
Atemu rolled his eyes. "Of course you are. You own the richest company in the world. You have to be doing well." Atemu said.
Seto smirked. "Of course." Seto said.
Malik looked over at Yugi. "So, Yugi. Just out of curiosity, so you ever think about it?" Malik asked.
"Think about what?" Yugi asked.
"You know. John." Malik said.
Everyone wondered what brought that up.
Yugi blinked. "Who?" Yugi asked.
Everyone laughed until they realized Yugi was serious.
"You really don't know who he's talking about, Yug?" Joey asked.
"No. I don't." Yugi said.
"John Marshall. The guy who put you in the hospital." Malik said.
It took a moment before it hit Yugi. "Oh! Him. Sorry. I didn't know who you were talking about at first." Yugi said.
"Well, that answers that." Marik said.
"Sorry, but I don't think about it anymore. I guess I've really forgotten about him." Yugi said, blushing lightly.
Yami chuckled. "I consider that a good thing." Yami said.
"I agree." Atemu added.
"I still feel sorry for that other guy." Ryou said.
"Well, I heard that he moved on and married someone else. From what I've heard, he's happily married. That was about two years after we got out of high school." Yugi said.
"Well, that's good for him." Seto said.
"I know." Yugi said.
The group continued with their day together.
That night, Yugi, Yami, and Atemu were in their room after all of their kids had gone to bed.
"I'm glad that we still meet up with the others. Most people would have thought that we wouldn't see any of our friends anymore." Atemu said.
"That's not true, and we know it. That's what matters." Yugi said.
"I know. It's nice, though. Not too many friendships from high school make it." Atemu said.
"All of ours did, at least." Yami said.
Yugi laughed. "We didn't have the most normal of friendships, either. Saving the world, fighting evil, and setting five thousand year old spirits free isn't exactly normal." Yugi said.
"I guess not." Atemu agreed.
"But you don't regret it." Yami said.
"Not in the least." Yugi agreed.
"Well, I would say that all of us have pretty good lives right now." Yami said.
"Yeah. We all are with people that we love, we all have wonderful kids, and we all have good lives. I don't think that people could ask for more than that." Yugi said. He smiled. "Of course, there are things that I hated losing." Yugi said.
"Grandpa.' Yami said.
Solomon had died five years before. It had been a great loss to them all, and Yugi hated that Katrina, Selena, and Nick had never gotten the chance to meet their great-grandfather.
"But at least he did die peacefully in his sleep." Yami said.
"Yeah. I'm glad that I had Grandpa as long as I did." Yugi said.
"That's the way to think about it. Besides, I know that he wouldn't want you to mope." Atemu said.
"I don't mope." Yugi said, glaring at Atemu.
"We all miss him, Yugi." Yami said.
"And I suppose we always will, but I still think that all things have turned out for the best." Yugi said.
"Of course they have." Yami agreed.
The three soon went to bed.
Yugi may have went through a great deal of pain, but he recovered from it with the help of his friends and the ones that he loved. His heart may have cried, but it would never have to do that again as long as the loves of his lives remained in his life, and he had no doubt about that.
