Ch. 1

An Act of Revenge with Horrifying News

-JPTV Studios-

(Aileen Lao is rehearsing for a concert in a week)

*: Aileen-san from the top-

-Yugi's House, The Game Shop-

(Yugi and friends are watching one of Aileen's music videos on MTV as Miho sings along, yet horribly)

Jounouchi: Oh God, make her stop!

(Honda grabs Jounouchi's shirt collar)

Honda (angry): JOUNOUCHI! WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY? MIHO-CHAN HAS THE VOICE OF AN ANGEL!

Jounouchi: Maybe a the voice of a devil…

Honda (angrier): TAKE THAT BACK OR I'LL CUT YOUR GUTS OUT RIGHT NOW!

Anzu: Cut that out!

Yugi: Honda-kun, there's no need for violence…

Honda: What are you saying, Yugi-kun? Jounouchi must pay! He has insulted Miho-chan's singing!

Atem (thinking): I don't blame you, Jounouchi.

(Jounouchi and Honda start fighting)

Anzu is fuming at this point and decides to yell at them…

Anzu (angry): BOTH OF YOU SHUT THE HELL UP!

Jounouchi and Honda turn Chibi as they cringe in the corner.

Anzu: That's what I thought.

(Meanwhile, at JPTV Studios)

Aileen (singing): You say you love me? Well I don't know-

a ghoulish green ghost-like arm strikes Aileen in the throat and rips out her voice. Aileen starts to cough up blood, grabs her throat and soon collapses

*: AILEEN-SAN! AILEEN-SAN!

Medical STAFF tend to her

*: DON'T JUST STAND THERE! GET AN AMBULANCE!

(Back at The Game Shop)

Miho screams in horror

Miho: This is terrible!

Honda: What happened?

TV: We bring you breaking news. Aileen Lao, the international model, singer, dancer and multiple Dance Dance Revolution Champion sensation suddenly collapsed in what was the most bizarre way possible. What you are about to see is extremely graphic-

(The footage of the mysterious collapse plays on TV making Yugi and the gang to react in various ways)

TV: Doctors are rushing Aileen-san to a nearby hospital. Her managers are telling us that the concert may be in jeopardy of being canceled if her condition does not improve.

Anzu: What could have done something like this?

Yugi: Not what could have done this… WHO could have done this!

Jounouchi: What are you saying?

Honda: You know who's behind this?

Atem: I have an idea but the problem is, Eric-kun, Ariel-chan, Aileen-san, Yugi and myself finished her off!

Honda: Yugi, you don't mean-

Yugi: I'm afraid Ursula is back!

Jounouchi: I called it! I knew she'd be back!

Anzu: That Sea Witch is back?

Yugi: I'm not sure HOW she came back but we need to be more ready, now than we've ever been!

Miho: Who's gonna believe us?

Jounouchi: It's pointless going to the police. Besides, they want solid proof.

Anzu: This is bad…

Honda: Who do we turn to?

Yugi: Anyone who'd be willing to help us. Where's Ryuji?

Anzu: He should be home.

Yugi: Good, then how about Mai?

Honda: Where your wife when you need her, Jounouchi?

Jounouchi: She's probably at work. I'll get her to come home early.

*: Count me in, Grandson!

Yugi: Grandpa? You want in?

Sugoroku: It's my obligated sworn duty as a member of the OCEAN FRONTLINE!

Atem: You can count on me for support, Yugi.

Yugi: I'm sure Kaiba could help us.

Honda: You can just forget Kaiba. He's the reason why we were in this mess to begin with!

Atem: True, but Kaiba knows Ursula better than anyone…

Anzu: I'm in.

Atem: Are you sure about this Anzu? You're pregnant with child.

Anzu: If I don't, Ursula could very well go after our child.

Sugoruko: Alright, as soon as we get everyone gathered; we'll head out to Eric's Castle! We've only got a week to pull this off. Everyone, prepare your decks well. Because after we set sail, there's no turning back!
