This is only a story I felt like writing and some Ideas I've been playing around with.

To everybody that reads, supports and Reviews my stories: I can't apologize enough for not updating or contacting anyone, I've had a lot going on lately.

But aside from all that than that let's get right into the chapter.


Chapter Four: The First Duel

Lucas and the others were surprised to see that a duelist was already waiting for them to arrive. It was not only the fact that a duelist was already waiting for them that surprised Lucas and the others. The thing that had surprised mainly Lucas was that the girl looked familiar to him as if they'd met before. The girl was wearing dark blue jeans, black boots, a black T-shirt and had a studded collar around her neck.

The smirk she wore on her face was what was the most familiar to Lucas when he looked at her for a moment.

"Ahem" the girl coughed in an attempt to snap Lucas out of his gaze. After a moment she began staring at Lucas who was still blankly staring back at her.

Rakaia nudged him in the ribs with his elbow and successfully got Lucas's attention.

"Wha-What?" Lucas said distractedly. "What was that for?" he asked.

"She asked us which of us dueling first" he answered. "What's up with you? You kinda just zoned out for a minute there" he finished.

"I…I think I know her" Lucas replied. "I just can't remember from where"

"Enough with your useless prattle" interrupted the girl. "I want to know which one of you is going to be my opponent, so hurry up so that we get this started" she said in an annoyed tone, placing a hand on her hip.

"Why are you here by yourself?" Alexia asked. "And why are you getting in our way?"

The girl fixed her gaze on Alexia before answering her sudden questions. "I'm here because I know who you are" she said, pointing at Lucas and Rakaia. "And I'm not going to let any of you lay a finger on Ryan" she said.

"Why are you helping him?" Lucas asked. "What's he blackmailing you with?" he asked.

"Ryan Blackmail me?" she said in a puzzled tone. "Ryan would never do such a thing" she said.

"Apparently you don't know him that well" Lucas said. "We're only here to take back what he stole from us" Lucas finished.

"He told me you would say that" said the girl in a loud and irritable tone. "You're just like how he said you'd be, you're just thieves lying to justify your stealing" she said.

"If anybody's the thief It's that two faced bastard" Lucas replied in an annoyed tone. He was running out of patience with this girl, he wanted to hurry and get his deck back before Ryan or somebody else did something to it.

"Watch your mouth!" the girl warned. "He told me things he would never tell you…Lucas" she said.

"How did you—"Lucas began, but he was cut off by Luna who spoke up.

"Listen…It's obvious that somebody's lying here and you're falling for it just as they planned" said Alexia in an annoyed tone.

"Yeah, and your precious Ryan is going to get what's coming to him and so are you if you don't get out of the way" Luna added.

"I won't let any of you scum touch him" said the girl. "I already have a problem with them trying to get to him, but I won't let anymore girls get within an inch of him" she finished, pointing at Luna who didn't even blink.

"You're insane" said Luna in a simple tone.

"I'll show you who's insane after I win this duel" she said. "Your time for decision making is over, I'm going to make the decision for you and I'm choosing you as my opponent" she said pointing at Luna.

"Fine by me" Luna said with a shrug. "I've wanted to shut you up ever since you first opened your big mouth" she finished.

Luna began to walk forward but she was stopped by Lucas who flung out his arm.

"Why do we need to duel you when there are seven of us and only one of you?" he asked.

"That's right…good point" Sega said, cracking her knuckles with an evil grin.

"Because if you don't play by Ryan's rules he'll rip that deck that you're all trying to steal" answered the girl, causing Sega to lower her fists. "And not only that he's set up camera's in every room so he'll know if any of you try anything funny" she finished.

"Why does he even want us to duel anyway?" Rose asked. "There wasn't any dueling going on when we met him, he and his little flunkies didn't duel us when they fought Rakaia and Lucas"

The girl folded her arms and chuckled to herself. "Because he wants to see how you do without the cards you're trying to steal from him" she answered.

"You mean the cards he stole from me" Lucas said in an annoyed tone. "I'm really starting to get tired of you getting your information wrong" he said.

"Luna, are you sure you want to do this?" Rakaia asked.

"I'm Positive" Luna responded. "People like her really need a dose of reality"

"We'll see who needs a dose of reality once you lose this duel…Loony" said the girl, earning a glare from Luna.

"Hmph… Whatever, I hope you duel better than you come up with insults for people" Luna said, activating her Duel Disk and standing across the room from the girl.

"And I hope you Duel better than you dress" said the girl, as she activated the Duel Disk of her own.

"Let's Duel!" they both shouted in unison.

Luna
LP: 4000

Both duelists shuffled their decks and both drew five cards before officially starting the duel. After drawing 5 cards a set of holographic projectors hidden in corners of the room began to activate.

"I'll bet you thought of everything, didn't you Ryan?" Lucas muttered under his breath.

"Since you're the one who challenged me, I'll draw a card and start this duel off" Luna said, before she drew a card from her deck. (+1)

Cards in her Hand:
Monsters: Harpie Lady 1, Harpie Queen, Harpies Pet Baby Dragon.
Spells: Mystical Space Typhoon, Lightning Vortex.
Traps: Icarus Attack.
"I'll start off by summoning Harpie Lady 1 in Attack Mode" Luna said. As she placed the card down a small column of white light appeared on her side of the field and quickly vanished to reveal her summoned monster.

Harpie Lady 1
LV/4
Type/Winged-Beast

ATK/ 1300
DEF/1400
Effect: This card's name is always treated as "Harpie Lady". All WIND monsters gain 300 ATK.

I'll also place one card facedown and end my turn with that" Luna said as she placed her card on her Duel Disk. (-2)

"Now it's my turn" said the girl as she drew a card from her deck.

"First I summon my Insect Knight in Attack Mode" She said as she placed her card on her Duel Disk.

Insect Knight
LV/4
Type/Insect
Attribute/Earth
ATK/1900
DEF/1500
Card Description/ Of all insect fighters, he is the paragon of the Indestructible Insect Invaders, which only the elite can join. We can no longer ignore their unmatched battle prowess.

As a humanoid insect wielding a sword and a shield appeared on The Girl's side of the field, Rose suddenly began to tremble and shiver uncontrollably which caught the attention of everybody in the room.

"Rose…Rose…are you okay?" Lucas asked as he tried to get a hold of her and stop her from trembling.

"What's with your thief partner over there?" asked the girl. "Why's she shaking like that? Is she about to have some kind of breakdown or something?"

"I told you we're not the thieves here" Lucas said, still trying to calm the trembling Rose.

"I…I do NOT like bugs" Rose managed to say. "I've always hated bugs…They've always grossed me out ever since I was little…it got even worse when my sister filled my shoes full of them as an April Fools prank when I was 8 years old" she explained, grabbing onto Lucas in an attempt to stop herself from trembling.

"Wow…that would freak just anybody out" Sega said. Rakaia on the other hand was putting his hands to his mouth in an effort to stop himself from laughing.

"Yeah...Imagine if you had actually stepped into the shoes while there were still bugs inside them" Rakaia said still trying his best not to laugh.

"That's not even the worst of it" Rose continued. "After that day I'd keep having nightmares about getting surrounded by bugs crawling towards me with nowhere to run" she finished.

"Are you gonna be okay Rose?" Sega asked.

"Yes…I'll be fine" Rose replied in an unconvincing tone.

"Well then, if everyone is quite finished with overreacting towards my monster, I'll place two cards facedown and end my turn" the girl finished coldly. (-3)

Cards in Hand: 5

Cards on the Field: 0

"Well…I guess it's my turn then" Luna casually said as she drew a card from her deck. (+1)

Cards in her Hand:
Monsters: Harpie Queen x2, Harpie's Pet Baby Dragon.
Spells: Mystical Space Typhoon, Cyber Shield.
Traps: None.

"Why didn't she attack my Harpie Lady after she summoned her Insect Knight?" Luna thought, still staring at the cards on her opponent's side of the field. "It was like she didn't even care that I had a monster on the field…I'll have to try something if I wanna finish this duel"

"Whatever Luna's planning I hope it's good" Lucas said. "There has to be some reason as to why she didn't attack Luna's Harpie Lady when she summoned her Insect Knight"

"She's probably just scared of what Luna's got laying facedown" Rakaia said shrugging off Lucas.

"I'm not sure I agree with you Rakaia, this girl could have some kind of strategy" Alexia cut in. "Either way Luna would do well to play it safe until she discovers her strategy"

"Come on…Any day now" Luna's opponent snapped as she crossed her arms.

"Alright already keep your shirt on" Luna replied as she picked a card from her hand.

"First I activate my Trap Card: Icarus Attack" Luna continued as her facedown card flipped over and revealed itself on the field.
Icarus Attack
Trap Card
Type/Normal
Effect: Tribute 1 Winged Beast-Type monster. Destroy 2 cards on the field.

"This card allows me to sacrifice one of my own monsters to destroy 2 cards on the field" Luna explained.

"So say goodbye to your Insect Knight and one of your face down cards" Luna finished as she pointed at the Insect Knight.

As Luna's Harpie Lady vanished in a column of yellow light, her opponent began to chuckle.

"I was hoping you'd do something like that, because now I activate a Trap of my own: Dark Bribe" said the girl as she revealed her facedown card.

Dark Bribe
Trap Card
Type/ Counter
Effect: Negate the activation of an opponent's Spell or Trap Card, and destroy it. Your opponent draws one card.

"So because of this card it's actually YOU who can say goodbye to your monster and your Trap…But hey at least you get to draw a card" the girl snickered.

"Ugh" Luna muttered in disgust as she drew a card from her deck. (+1)

"I'd advise you to surrender and apologize for your thievery" the girl continued.

"We've already tried to tell you that it's Ryan who stole from us, not the other way around" Luna said. "If you're not going to listen then I'd advise YOU to shut up" Luna finished, causing her opponent to glare at her.

"Now if you're done wasting my time with your talk of nonsense I'll discard the Harpie Queen in my hand so I can activate her effect, which lets me add my Harpie's Hunting Ground Field Spell from my Deck to my Hand" Luna went on as she added her aforementioned card to her hand.

"Then I'll activate my Mystical Space Typhoon so I can destroy your Facedown card" Luna said as she activated her Spell Card, causing it to reveal itself on the field.

Mystical Space Typhoon
Spell Card
Type/ Quick-Play
Effect: Select 1 Spell or Trap Card on the field. Destroy it.

"This card allows me to select and destroy a Spell or Trap Card on the field, so say goodbye to your face down card" Luna said.

A cyclone launched itself at the girl's facedown card and tore directly through it, causing it to be destroyed.

"Ugh, you're going to regret doing that" Luna's opponent snarled at her.

"Right…Just like I regret having to hear you open your mouth ever since we came here" Luna replied with a sigh.

"Now I'm going to summon my second Harpie Queen to the field" Luna continued as her monster appeared before her.

Harpie Queen
LV/ 4
Type/ Winged Beast
Attribute/ Wind
ATK/ 1900
DEF/ 1200
Effect: You can discard this card to the Graveyard to add 1 "Harpies' Hunting Ground" from your Deck to your hand. This card's name is treated as "Harpie Lady" while it is on the field or in the Graveyard.

"What was the point of summoning that thing?" asked Luna's Opponent. "It's just as strong as my Insect Knight, if it attacks then they'll both be destroyed" she finished.

"That's why I'm going to activate the Field Spell I added to my hand before I summoned my Queen" Luna said as she placed her Field Spell into the slot on her Duel Disk, which caused the field around them to change.

Harpie's Hunting Ground
Spell Card
Type/ Field
Effect: When "Harpie Lady" or "Harpie Lady Sisters" is Normal Summoned or Special Summoned, destroy 1 Spell or Trap Card on the field. All face-up Winged Beast-Type monsters gain 200 ATK and DEF.

Luna's Harpie Queen gave a loud shriek as its attack and defense points increased by 200 points.

"This Field Spell gives my Harpie Ladies an additional 200 Attack and Defense points, and after I summon one of my Harpie Ladies I get to destroy a Spell or Trap Card on the field" Luna explained.

Harpie Queen
ATK/ 1900-2100
DEF/1200-1400

"And since your creepy bug is creeping around in her territory I think it's time for her to do some pest control, Harpie Queen attack her Insect Knight" Luna commanded.

Harpie Queen flew forward at a high speed and slashed the Insect Knight with its sharp talons, causing it to explode and be destroyed before returning back to Luna's side of the field.

?
LP: 4000-3800

"And I'll end my turn with one facedown card" Luna finished. (-3)

Luna's opponent drew a card from her deck and smirked at it before returning her attention to Luna and the Duel.

"It's funny what you said about being in somebody else's territory just now" she said. "Kind of like how you've all showed up in Ryan's territory uninvited"

"I've already told you, Ryan is the—"Lucas tried to say.

"But it doesn't matter" she continued, speaking above Lucas. "I'll clear you all out just as easily…After I summon my Ultimate Insect LV 3" she said.

Ultimate Insect LV 3
LV/3
Type/Insect
Attribute/Wind
ATK/1400
DEF/900
Effect: If this card was Special Summoned by the effect of "Ultimate Insect LV 1", while it remains on the field all of your opponent's monsters lose 300 ATK. During your Standby Phase, by sending this face-up card to the Graveyard, Special Summon 1 "Ultimate Insect LV 5" from your hand or Deck. (You cannot activate this effect the turn this card is Normal Summoned, Special Summoned, or flipped face-up.)

Rose gave another slight shudder as another large insect appeared on the field.

"Uh guys… I don't think I like where this is going" Lucas said.

"And that's not all, I'll also activate the spell card Level Up" she said.

Level Up
Spell Card
Type/Normal
Effect: Send 1 face-up "LV" monster on your side of the field to the Graveyard. Special Summon a monster from your hand or Deck that is written in the card text of the sent monster, ignoring any and all Summoning conditions.

"I'll be trading in my Ultimate Insect LV 3…for my Ultimate Insect LV 5" She finished as her Ultimate Insect LV 3 vanished from the field. It's bigger and stronger counterpart soon appeared in a column of light.

Ultimate Insect LV 5
LV/5
Type/Insect
Attribute/Wind
ATK/2300
DEF/900
Effect: If this card was Special Summoned by the effect of "Ultimate Insect LV 3", while it remains on the field all of your opponent's monsters lose 500 ATK. During your Standby Phase, by sending this face-up card to the Graveyard, Special Summon 1 "Ultimate Insect LV 7" from your hand or Deck. (You cannot activate this effect the turn this card is Normal Summoned, Special Summoned, or flipped face-up.)

"Oh great…She traded her big and creepy bug, for an even bigger and creepier bug" Rose groaned.

"That's right…and this bug is about take a bite out of your little friend's monster" replied Luna's opponent, pointing at Luna's Harpie Queen.

"Attack Now!" she commanded. The Ultimate Insect flew forward at a high speed and bit into Luna's Harpie Queen, destroying it and causing Luna to lose 200 Life Points as a result.

Luna
LP: 4000-3800

"I'll end my turn by placing two cards facedown" said Luna's opponent. (-4)

Luna
LP:3800
Cards in Hand: 2
Cards on the Field: 1
Monsters: None

?
LP:3800
Cards in Hand: 0
Cards on the Field: 2
Monsters: Ultimate Insect LV 5

Luna drew a card from her deck and paused for a moment to look at the field.

Cards in her Hand:
Monsters: Harpie Lady 1, Harpie's Pet Baby Dragon.
Spells: Cyber Shield, Lightning Vortex.
Traps: None.

"Alright…Since I just drew my Lightning Vortex I can discard a card and get rid of her Ultimate Insect, after that I can summon my second Harpie Lady to do some damage to her Life Points" Luna thought.

"I hate to interrupt your slow thinking process" interrupted Luna's opponent. "But I'm going to activate my first facedown card: Anti Spell Fragrance" she finished as her facedown card flipped over.

Anti Spell Fragrance
Trap Card
Type: Continuous
Effect: Both Players must Set Spell Cards before activating them, and cannot activate them until their next turn.

"This card's effect means that we can't activate any Spell Cards until the turn after we set them" explained the unknown duelist as she smirked at Luna.

"Ugh… That card is so annoying" Luna muttered under her breath.

"And while I'm at it I'll activate my other Trap Card: Mind Crush!" she continued.

Mind Crush
Trap Card
Type: Normal
Effect: Declare 1 card name. If that card is in your opponent's hand, they must discard all copies of it in their hand. If it is not, you randomly discard one card.

"Mind Crush allows me to declare a card name, and if you have it or any copies of in your hand it goes straight to the Graveyard. But if I guess it wrong then I'll have to discard a card from my hand…pretty exciting huh?" explained Luna's opponent with a smirk.

"Yeah whatever" Luna replied in a dull tone as if she were bored. "Just make your guess so I can make my move already" she said.

"Well fine, since you're in such a hurry to lose I won't stand in your way" said the girl. She took a moment to think and observed the field.

"Judging by your name of your Field Spell and the monsters I've seen you play, I'm going to assume you have a Harpie Lady in your hand" said the girl. "So the card name I declare is Harpie Lady" she finished.

"Ugh…Lucky Guess" Luna snarled as she discarded her monster. "Oh no…That was my only monster, now I can't use my Field Spell effect to destroy her trap, and on top of that I have to use my dragon that I was saving to defend myself against that giant eyesore" Luna thought.

"A Lucky Guess?" snarled the girl. "It doesn't take a genius to figure out what kind of deck you play after seeing the kind of cards I've already seen you use" she said as she folded her arms.

"Observant isn't she?" Alexia said in a sarcastic tone.

The girl turned her attention to Alexia after hearing what Alexia had just said about her.

"I can't wait until I end this duel so I can shut the rest of you losers up" she said. "You think you can come here and do whatever you want, but you didn't realize that someone was going to put you all in your place" she continued glaring at Alexia and the rest of the gang who were right beside her.

Lucas stared again at her face for a moment, still trying to figure out where and how he knew her from.

"And just what is your problem?" added Luna's opponent, glaring at Lucas. "You've been staring at me like that ever since you and the rest of the lousy peanut gallery came here" she said as she eyed the rest of the gang beside the staring Lucas, who was ignoring the girl's taunts.

"What? Do you have some kind of crush on me or something?" she asked in an irritated tone, staring at Lucas with anger in sparking her blue eyes.

After hearing the girl's remark Rose began to slightly stop trembling and glared at the girl with disdain. "Don't flatter yourself…You and your delusions are really starting to get on my nerves" Rose said.

"Standing up for someone you love isn't a delusion" the girl responded. "You just don't know Ryan like I do" she said as she intensified her own glare that was previously fixed on Lucas but was quickly shifted to

"Really…Are you serious?" Rose scoffed. "Lucas grew up with both Ryan and his sister together, he and his little gang of thugs tried to ambush us yesterday, and lastly he took Lucas's and Rakaia's cards" Rose continued. "You think you know everything about him and that he's perfect, but he's only using you to do his dirty work" she finished with an angry look on her face, she had completely stopped trembling, no longer showing any form of concern that a large distressing insect was beside the girl.

"Oh right" the girl replied sarcastically. "You fought with, humiliated and disrespected our friends at the mall yesterday and suddenly you're the innocent ones?" she asked.

"Did you ever stop to think that any of your little friends started these problems and that they just got what was coming to them?" Rakaia cut in with an angry look also present on his face. "Your buddy Nick stole a brand new sports bag of mine with brand new cards, while your precious boyfriend Ryan stole Lucas's deck from him when we were going to his house" he finished as he folded his arms in disgust.

"Ugh!...Back to dueling, I have no interest in hearing anymore of your lies" the girl snapped as she returned her attention back to Luna and the Duel.

Meanwhile at the top floor upstairs

Ryan was sitting in a decorated and well organized room in a chair watching a large television that was showing the duel that was currently taking place. While Nick and several other friends of Ryan's were standing beside him, overseeing the duel and the conflicts between them all that were taking place, they were all watching with eagerness to discover what would happen if their ally lost.

"I see that kid is still pretty upset with you Nick" said a girl beside him. It was the blonde girl with pigtails who started the argument with Sega and Aqua at the mall yesterday. "I wonder what you did to make him so mad?" she asked in mock curiosity earning a laugh from Nick and several others.

"Gee Sandra…I couldn't possibly know, I mean I'm such a loveable guy" he replied with a grin that matched his tone of sarcasm, as she placed her head on his shoulder with a smirk of her own.

"Hey Ryan are you sure we should be doing this?" asked Nick as he looked at his leader who's eyes remained on the screen. "I mean you've already got that Lucas kid's deck and I'm sure we can beat these guys hand-to-hand so why are we wasting our time with dueling when we could easily take them out here and now?" he asked.

Ryan placed his both of his feet on top of the desk that was in front of him and chuckled to himself as if someone had just told a funny joke before answering Nick's question. "Oh I have my reasons for not wanting to strong-arm them" he said, still not looking at Nick.

"But if you must know, one of those reasons is to test their intellect and hopefully gain information on them" he finished in a cold tone.

"Why are we even bothering with getting their information?" Sandra asked. "All I care about is getting my payback" she finished.

"Then do as you will" Ryan responded. "I on the other hand would rather study my opponent…all their strengths and all of their weaknesses" he finished.

"So Ryan, what do you think her chances of winning are?" Nick asked. "After what we've told her she does seem pretty determined to win and with the cards we gave her she should have no problem" he said.

"If you're so confident in her abilities then why are you asking me what her chances are?" Ryan asked. "I don't question her loyalty, I've told her exactly what I needed to in order for her to turn against Lucas and to achieve my desired result" he said. "Our only concern is what her opponent skills are" she finished.

"I'm getting bored just sitting here and watching" Sandra said after standing up. "I'm going to head down in a little while" Sandra said, as she walked and leaned towards the wall by the door and stared at her deck after taking it out of her pocket.

"I hope the runt, makes dueling him as exciting as it was taking his cards" Nick said with a twisted smile, nodding his head towards the screen that showed Rakaia's face. "It would be a shame to use the cards I got from him on a pathetic deck and an even more pathetic duelist" he finished.

"Hopefully Yvette can get her job done without taking a loss to his little girlfriend down there" said Sandra. "It would be such a shame to see some of those rare cards she has goes to waste not ending up in our possession" she finished.

Meanwhile downstairs where the duel continues

"Now I remember how I know you" Lucas suddenly shouted out, causing Rose, Rakaia, and Luna's opponent to fix their eyes on Lucas.

"You know me?" she asked raising her eyebrows, staring more intensely at Lucas. "Even though you do look a little familiar, I can't place where I know you from" she finished.

"You were Christy's little friend Yvette…You were the quiet one of the group, I remember you were the one that was always smiling whenever you'd watch our group duels" Lucas said as Yvette began to blush, embarrassed that Lucas had remembered her former personality that she came to grow out of with age.

"You really grew up though" Lucas said as he looked a bit more closely at her. "I never expected you to be so angry though…" he finished as he put his right hand in his pocket.

Yvette placed a hand on her hip and stared at Lucas for a moment before she spoke back to him. "Ah…now I remember you, you were that new kid on the neighborhood with the two little brothers" she said.

After she Yvette spoke her calm face was twisted into an angry expression. "You, Ryan, his friends and his sister were all the best of friends…And even after all you've been through… you and your little replacement friends are here to steal from him?" she snapped causing Sega, Luna, and Rakaia to stare angrily at her after being called 'replacements'.

"After what you did to his sister haven't you done enough damage?" she asked which caused Lucas's eyes to widen in shock. The hand that was in his pocket clenched itself into a shaking hard fist. "Ryan must've told her the opposite of what really happened in order for her to go over to his side…" he thought to himself as he gritted his teeth.

"Yvette…listen to me" he began as he began to regain control of his temper hopeful that he would have a better chance of getting her to hear his side of the story. "Ryan was the one who started this all" he said.

"No Lucas I know the truth…Ryan told me everything that happened and that's all I need to know" she snapped. "And after all he's been through I can't believe you of all people would do this to him" she finished.

Lucas sighed as he tried to not to let his temper get the best of him, he and the rest of the group including the usually calm Rose and Aqua were also beginning to get annoyed with Yvette's lack of knowledge and firm belief that Ryan was innocent.

"I'm…I'm done…No, we're done trying to convince you" Lucas managed to say as calmly as possible as he put his hand to his head as if he had a headache. "If you're not going to let us pass then we'll just defeat you and be done with it" he said as Yvette simply glared at him.

"Easier said than done" she snapped as she returned her attention to the duel and to Luna. "Let's get on with this, hurry up and make your move" she said coldly.

"Fine then, I summon my Harpie's Pet Baby Dragon in defense mode" Luna said as her monster knelt down in front of her with it's wings crossed over it's face.

Harpie's Pet Baby Dragon
LV/4
Type/Dragon
Attribute/Wind
ATK/1200
DEF/600
Effect: This card gains effects based on the number of "Harpie" monsters you control (other than "Harpie's Pet Baby Dragon" and Harpie's Brother").

1+: Your opponent cannot select "Harpie" monsters you control as attack targets (except "Harpie's Pet Baby Dragon" and "Harpie's Brother").

2+: Double the original ATK and DEF of this card.

3+: Once per turn you can destroy 1 card your opponent controls.

"And I'll end my turn with one card face down" Luna finished. (-2)

"Good, now It's my turn then" Yvette replied in a hasty tone as she drew a card from her deck and glanced at it for a moment before she continued with her turn. "I'll activate my Ultimate Insect LV 5's effect, which allows me to send it to the graveyard in order to summon my Ultimate Insect LV 7 from my Deck to the field" she explained.

Yvette's Ultimate Insect LV 5 flapped it's wings before it vanished in a column of white light, in it's place appeared an even bigger and nastier insect than the last one.

Ultimate Insect LV 7
LV/7
Type/Insect
Attribute/Wind
ATK/2600
DEF/1200
Effect: If this card was Special Summoned by the effect of "Ultimate Insect LV 5",while it remains on the field all of your opponent's monsters lose 700 ATK and DEF.

Yvette's monster flapped it's wings and emitted a lime-green mist to appear and launched itself at Luna's side of the field which caused her Harpie's Pet Baby Dragon to growl in pain and weaken as it's Attack and Defense points were lowered by the effects of the green mist.

Rose's left eye began to slightly twitch as she witnessed Yvette's large insect flapping it's repulsive wings.

"Now I'll have my Insect devour your little dragon…Attack now!" she commanded. Yvette's Ultimate Insect LV 7 flew swiftly over to Luna's side of the field and landed in front of her dragon. Everyone with the exception of Rose who had immediately shut her eyes, watched on as they witnessed the overgrown bug swallow Luna's Dragon as slowly and violently as possible.

After seeing the attack Sega's face began to turn a shade of green, along with Rakaia who put his hand to his mouth to keep it closed, even Alexia and Aqua stared on with their eyes widened in shock while Rose grabbed on to Lucas who was starting to feel nauseous until the attack ended.

"I'll place a card facedown and end my turn with that" Yvette said in a normal tone.

"Luna…Please…get that thing off the field as soon as you can" Sega said as her face slowly regained it's regular shade of color.

"Don't worry Sega, I'm on it" Luna responded as she picked up a card from her deck and added it to her hand. (+1)

"Alright…now that I have a monster in my hand and since a turn has already passed I can use my

Lightning Vortex to take out her monster and her trap and manage to do some damage at the same

time" Luna thought to herself.

"First I'll start off by revealing my facedown card: Lightning Vortex" Luna said as she pressed a button on

her duel disk her card revealed itself.

Lightning Vortex

Type/Normal

Effect: Discard 1 card. Destroy all face-up monsters your opponent controls.

"Lightning Vortex lets me destroy all of your face up monsters as long as I discard a card" Luna explained

as she sent her Cyber Shield from her hand to the graveyard.

"So it's about time I did some more pest control" Luna said with a smirk as a large lightning bolt struck

Yvette's Ultimate Insect, causing it to explode and be destroyed.

"You won't get away with that" Yvette hissed with a deadly glare.

"Next I'll summon my Harpie Lady 1" Luna said as her monster appeared before her.

"And the effect of my Field Spell activates which lets me pick a Spell or Trap card on the field and destroy it" Luna continued. "And I'm going to choose your Trap Card" Luna said as she pointed at Yvette's face up Anti Spell Fragrance, causing it to explode.

"Now It's about time we did something about our tied Life Points" Luna continued. "Now Attack her directly Harpie Lady!" Luna commanded.

After hearing Luna's command, her Harpie Lady flew forward at a high speed and slashed Yvette with her sharp talons before returning to Luna's side of the field.

Yvette
LP: 3800-2000

"And that ends my turn" Luna finished.

"Good move Luna" Rakaia shouted. "Way to do some damage"

Yvette simply drew a card from her deck and began to smile seconds after she looked at what she drew.

"I'll start off by activating my Spell Card: Foolish Burial" she said as she placed her card onto her Duel Disk.

Foolish Burial
Spell Card
Type/Normal
Effect: Send 1 Monster Card from your Deck to the Graveyard.

"And the card I'll be sending to the graveyard is my Brain Crusher" Yvette continued as she took the mentioned card from her deck and placed into the Graveyard.

"What's she up to?" Sega asked rhetorically.

"Next I activate my Facedown Spell: Premature Burial" Yvette continued as she placed her card down. "Premature Burial lets me pick a monster in my Graveyard and Special Summon it to the field in Attack Mode as long as I pay 800 Life Points" she said. "And I'll use it's effect to bring back the monster I sent to the Graveyard just now" she went on as her Life Points decreased.

Premature Burial
Spell Card
Type/Equip
Effect: Pay 800 Life Points. Select 1 monster from your Graveyard, Special Summon it in face-up Attack Position, and equip it with this card. When this card is destroyed, destroy the equipped monster.

After placing her card in her Monster Zone, a flash of bright yellow light appeared on Yvette's side of the field. An even more repulsive Insect than the last one soon appeared in front of her on her side of the field after the column of light vanished.

"Now Attack her pathetic Harpie Lady!" Yvette commanded. The Brain Crusher flew over to Luna's Harpie Lady 1 and slashed at it with it's large and powerful claws, destroying it and lowering Luna's Life Points as a result.

Luna
LP:3800-3100

"And I'll end my turn after I activate my Brain Crusher's effect which allows me to Special Summon a monster that it destroyed by battle to my side of the field, which means I can summon your Harpie Lady 1" Yvette continued as Luna's monster appeared in front of her.

"This duel is over" Luna said as if it was a matter of fact. (+1)

"You should never have summoned my Harpie Lady" she continued.

"Why is that? Are you afraid it might turn against you like some people in this room?" Yvette asked, putting emphasis on her last question and staring at Lucas who simply responded with a glare.

"No…I get to activate my Field Spell's effect and destroy a Spell or Trap card on the field" Luna answered. "And the card I choose is your Premature Burial" Luna said as she pointed to the card.

"What?! No!" Yvette said in alarm. But it was already too late, Premature Burial exploded and disappeared which caused her Brain Crusher to fade away as a result.

"People like you are the worst…" Luna said, as she drew a card from her deck. "You think you know everything about the situation, completely ignorant to the fact that there are two sides to the story, just like there are two sides to every coin" she finished with an evil stare at Yvette.

"I activate my last Spell Card: Harpies Army Gathering" she said.

"Harpie's Army Gathering…That's a new one" Sega said. "Let's see what it does" she finished as she crossed her arms and leaned against the wall behind her.

Luna
LP:3100-100

"So I'll summon the 2 Harpie Queens that were sent to the Graveyard, my Harpie Lady 1, and my Harpie's Pet Baby Dragon" Luna said.

Luna's four monsters flew down from above onto her side of the field in front of her.

"Don't worry…I do have to destroy my Field Spell, but in the end that doesn't matter" she said.

Harpie's Pet Baby Dragon

"That little guy has 3000 Attack Points?" Rakaia said in shock. "Way to go Luna!" he shouted as he raised his fist in the air.

"Now let's finish this…Harpie's Pet Baby Dragon Attack her Harpie Lady 1!" Luna commanded. The Harpie Ladies on Luna's side of the field surrounded the baby dragon and placed their hands on it, giving it a green aura that surrounded its entire body. The small dragon opened its mouth and launched a large blast of green energy and winds that completely obliterated the Harpie Lady on Yvette's side of the field and her remaining Life Points along with it as a result.

Yvette
LP: 1200-0000

"Now that this duel's over…you can get out of our way now" Luna said as her Duel Disk deactivated.

Yvette sank to her knees in disappointment as her own Duel Disk was deactivated as a result of her loss.

"No…I'm sorry Ryan…I tried my best" she said in a sad tone, as if she were speaking directly to Ryan

himself.

"Alright guys…let's go upstairs and get Lucas's Deck back" Luna said with a smile.

Upstairs with Ryan and his Gang

Ryan, Nick, Sandra, and another boy, who had already finished watching Yvette's Duel, began to prepare their next move.

"Looks like little Yvette just couldn't seem to win" Sandra said with a smirk.

"Oh well…It was her own fault" Ryan responded. "I no longer have any use for her" he finished in a cold

tone, unconcerned that he had abandoned a loyal subordinate that defended him and his name to the best of their

efforts.

"I think it's about time for some payback…don't you?" Sandra asked the boy In the shadows who nodded instead of giving a direct answer.

"Then let's go" she answered, before turning to Ryan. "Don't worry, you won't have to monitor us or worry about failure like you did with Yvette, we won't make any foolish mistakes like she did" Sandra finished as she and the

other boy walked away.

"Make sure you back up your words with actions then" Ryan responded. "I don't want to have to get to get involved until the time is right" he finished before he returned his attention to the cameras.

Meanwhile Downstairs

The gang were about to head upstairs to the second floor until Rakaia flung out his arm to stop them from moving.

"I hear footsteps…" he said. "I think somebody's coming down or going up"

"We're coming down of course you dolt" said a rude voice. After the gang stepped back two more people began to make both their presences known.

"It's you!" Sega said with a glare. Sandra was the first one to come down, she smirked and put her hand on her hip.

"That's right, it's me" she responded, sneering at Sega who had her fists clenched. "And I'm not alone either" Sandra added as the sound of footsteps beside her suddenly stopped.

"I believe you've all already met my brother" she said. The boy who came downstairs with her made Rose and Lucas's eyes widen with a mixture of surprise and shock.

"Allen?" Rose said in shock. Allen was the last person Lucas and his friends expected to be involved with Ryan and his gang.

"Yeah it's me, and I'm glad you remembered my name dear Rose" he said with an evil smile. "I believe You and I have some unfinished business" he said as he placed a Duel Disk on his arm.
