Summary: In one timeline, Abidos spent a bare hour in the modern world, dueling Juudai. In one that's a little chillier, another course of events took place.
"Aren't you cold?" Juudai stamped his feet in place, trying to keep them warm. A blizzard covered the entire island in a foot of ice and snow. Most students kept themselves wrapped up in their school-issued coats, but this person stood staring out at the woods in normal clothes.
Well, maybe not so normal, Juudai realized, getting close enough to get a better look. These weren't the clothes of a student. If anything, what this guy did have on should've been colder, given how this outfit bared most of his arms and legs to the cold. Maybe he was a cosplayer duelist?
The other gave no answer, dark eyes distant. Juudai frowned and poked him on the shoulder. "Hey! Didn't you hear me?"
"I heard you." He glanced down at Juudai for a heartbeat, then returned his attention to the snowy woods. "No. I'm not cold."
Juudai rubbed the back of his head, confused. "You're not? Why not?" That cape of his didn't look all that warm.
"Leave me be."
The more Juudai looked at this stranger, the more strange things he saw about him. He didn't think most cosplayer duelists wore that much gold on them. Juudai decided that didn't matter right now. He set his hands on his hips and glared. "No. You're going to catch a cold if you stay out here."
"No, I won't." The stranger once again looked at him, a hint of annoyance visible in his gaze. "What would you care if I did?"
"Why wouldn't I?" Juudai really didn't understand this guy. "Come on, I think I can talk Shou into making us some hot tea. Then you can tell me why you can wear something like that and still not catch cold. What's your name, anyway? I'm Yuuki Juudai!"
"Abidos the Third."
