Chapter 7

"You must be Jono," Seto said quietly as he took in the blond's wary expression.

"You're not Set. Where's Set?"

"I don't know where he is. He just took Joey and disappeared."

"…Joey?"

"Your…reincarnation."

Jono paused. "My reincarnation? Set has chosen another lover?"

"Like hell he has," the brunet snapped.

The blond's eyes immediately lit up. "You mean this Joey is your lover?"

"Not…exactly."

"WHAT THE HELL DO YA THINK YOU'RE DOIN', YA FUCKIN' PERVERT?"

Seto's head shot up. He knew that voice anywhere. "Come on. Follow me."


Joey shoved Set away from him, seething in anger. "Do that again and I'll break you're fuckin' face!"

"I don't understand," Set raged. "He doesn't want you. I've lost the love of my life. It should only be natural that you and I come together."

"There's nothin' natural about it. Can ya honestly say that ya wouldn't be thinkin' of Jono if ya were with me?" When the priest failed to answer, Joey sighed. "That's what I thought. I can see that ya loved him. But ya can't force yourself on me just because ya miss him."

"I've grown so weary of being alone. Please, give me a chance to love you?" Set begged.

"I can't do that. I wouldn't feel that way about ya. I like—"

"Set?" came a cautious voice from behind Joey. He turned around to see someone who looked exactly like him…save for the weird outfit. The blond watched as this newcomer walked over to Set with tears in his eyes.

Slap!

"Why do you have to be such a foolish ingrate? Abducting someone who looks like me just so that you can relive our most intimate moments?" Jono ranted.

"Jo—" started Set, but he was cut off by another slap.

"How dare you think so little of our love!"

"I didn't do anything with him, Jono! I swear!" declared Set.

Joey rolled his eyes. "Then what did ya call kissin' me?"

"WHAT?" Seto and Jono roared simultaneously.

But before Seto could even make a move, Jono lunged into action as he smacked Set over and over again. When he was done, they both heaved as they stared at each other with longing.

"I can't believe it's really you," whispered Jono, graciously moving into Set's arms. "I've missed you so much. But if you ever try to replace me again, I will kill you."

Set let out a humorous chuckle. "And I'll let you. It feels wonderful having you in my arms again."

Seto clenched his fists. "I'm sorry—actually, I'm not—for breaking up this little reunion, but there is still the situation of random Duel Monsters abducting people out there!"

Jono smiled as he took Set's hand. "Don't worry about them. We'll handle it. Come now, Set."

As the two priests left the haunted house, leaving Seto and Joey alone, the blond took a hesitant step toward the brunet. "That was nice of ya."

"What was?" inquired Seto, turning his attention to the blond.

"Gettin' Jono back with Set. I didn't know ya cared about romance."

"I wasn't trying to get those two morons together," Seto quipped. "I came for you, you idiot."

"Oh," replied Joey, eyes downcast. "Wait. What?"

"Do I really have to spell it out for you?"

"Huh? Spell what?"

"Why I find your idiocy appealing, I'll never know," he mumbled. "I came after you because I wasn't going to let anyone take what is rightfully mine."

"…"

"Why do you have to be so—I like you, you dumbass!"

"…why couldn't ya just say that in the first place? But, no! Ya gotta beat around the bush and insult me and—"

Joey's mind came to a screeching halt when Seto yanked him in for a kiss. While his brain screamed, 'what the hell is going on,' his body said, 'me likey very much.'

"Do you understand now?" Seto said breathlessly when he pulled away.

"I think we might have to do that a few more times before I finally get it."

"Just a few?"

"Get that damn smirk off your face. I ain't committin' to anythin' yet. Besides, we still got Duel Monsters floatin' around."

"They said they'd handle it," replied Seto as he placed his arms around the blond's waist and let his hands trail.

"Eek! Would ya stop it? Ya two are both the same!"

"Pardon?"

"Ya and Set! You're both perverts!"

"Did that fucking man-whore touch you?"

"He just kissed me."

"That's it?"

"That's it."

"Okay."

"So…what now?" asked Joey.

"Let's head out of here. Hopefully the mayhem has ceased somewhat out there," Seto replied as he took the blond's head.

They left the haunted house and spotted Set and Jono standing outside with the other surrounding them.

When the priests noticed them, Jono winked. "I take it you two made up?"

Joey immediately blushed.

Set smirked. "Tell me, does Joey like to have his neck—"

"Set!" hissed Jono. "They don't need to hear the explicit details of our lovemaking!"

Please, let this all be over soon, Seto mentally groaned. But he'd have to store that little bit of 'neck' information. The brunet fully intended to explore that detail later.

"Anyway," warned Jono as he glared at his lover, "let us begin."

Both priests then took a few steps forward, putting their hands together as if they were praying. Soon, the portal above them seemed to respond; it flashed as if it was a beacon. And for whatever reason there might be, it appeared it was calling out to all the Duel Monsters that had made it through the portal.

Suddenly, people started reappearing around them as Duel Monsters floated back to the portal, disappearing from whence they came. Sometime later, Jono spoke again.

"That's the last of them," he said softly.

"It's time for us to go as well," added Set. "Once we enter the portal, it will close."

"Though you put the world in danger, we thank you for opening it. If you hadn't, Set and I might not have reunited."

"See, Ryou? I did a good thing," insisted Bakura.

"You're still banned from sex."

"Until when?"

"Until further notice."

"Are you trying to kill me?"

"Yes, but it doesn't seem to be working," responded Ryou. Noticing Bakura's shocked look, he added, "You're rubbing off on me. I can't help it."

"I any case," started Jono slowly, "we thank you. All of you."

"And Seto? Joey? Be good to each other and let your love remain strong and true for all eternity," added Set.

The priests then held hands, a bright glow surrounding them as they, too, ascended toward the portal. Once they made it through, it closed, setting things right again.

"Is it too soon to take you out on a date?" asked Seto, gazing at Joey.

"What? You're not gonna ask me?"

"I hadn't planned on it."

"Jerk."

"But I can ask you. On one condition, though."

"What's that?"

"You change into a puppy costume."

"What the hell is with you and the dog fetish thing?"

"It's not a fetish. It's a way of life."
