With Duel over the Ark Cradle truly began to shake as time had run out. And Yusei gathered next to his friends and they all held on to each other as this was the end. But Yusei knew what he had to do.
He then hopped in his runner and rode to the very center of the reactor, to where all of the momentum gears were. His jacket and gloves had been torn to hell and were useless as he tore them off. If he was gonna die he was gonna die comfortable...
Suddenly Zone came crashing in
"Yusei! I've realized my mistake. Please let me redeem myself by sacrificing myself." Z-one said and flew towards the moment gears and used one of his arms to grab Yusei's runner and tossed him out
"Z-one don't do it!" Yusei Called
"Don't worry my friends. I'm coming." Z-one said and even smiled a little
Things were getting brighter and bright until nothing...
He awoke, the signer was surrounded by nothing but vast darkness.
"You can go back you know." They heard a familiar voice say
The signer then saw Yusei's father again, only this time he accompanied by a woman with brown hair and Royal Blue eyes.
"Yusei. My wonderful son, oh you've grown so much into the man I hoped you would be." The woman said
"M-mom?" Yusei said and felt tears
"You really do have my eyes." Mrs. Fudo said and hugged her son
"Dead? No, you are not." Mr. Fudo answered his son "What you are experiencing is your unconscious mind drifting toward a different realm."
"And before you return. Take care of her Yusei." Mr. Fudo said
"Wait! Will I ever see you guys again?" Yusei asked not hold back the tears
"Oh my wonderful son we are always with you, no matter where you are." His mother said
"Know that we have always loved you son." His father said
Everything then went bright again...
Everyone was at the spot of New Domino that Yusei often came to. The turn around peak. And Akiza was on her hands and knees crying hysterically. She knew what he had to do. But she had just started to truly fall in love and she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him. To get married, have kids, and grow old together. But now that would never happen....
But then they heard a low hum off in the distance. Akiza looked up. She couldn't believe her eyes. Only one duel runner had wings. Yusei! He was alive!
They all jumped up and down like idiots, some of them were were crying, mostly the girls, and even a few of the guys even if they wouldn't admit it. He wasn't wearing his jacket or gloves but he still had his helmet and wrist dealer on. He then landed and took his helmet off and walked up to Akiza and kissed her.
"I'm never gonna leave you alone again." He finally said
She rested her head on his chest and wrapped her arms around him and he place his hands on the back of her neck.
She then looked up at him with a look in her eye.
"Yusei, I need to ask you something..."
"You can ask me anything Akiza." He said as he had the same look in his eyes
"Do you love me?"
Without a moments hesitation he kissed her. Their lips met with passion and fire, they kissed like they had never kissed before. Her cheeks were hot and bright red. Her lips were were soft and warm, and tasted better than anything. He then parted and looked into her eyes again.
"Does that answer your question?"
"Yes, it does."
"I... need to ask you something as well. But I need to get something from my runner, and I need you to close your eyes."
She shot him a quizzical look but she closed her eyes. He then quickly went to his runner and got something out one of the compartments. Ad everyone gasped and all of the girls squealed and were crying tears of joy and happiness at what he had
"Okay you can open your eyes."
She slowly opened her eyes and he was down on one knee. She gasped as her hands covered her mouth and nose and she couldn't fight the tears of joy from streaming down her cheeks.
"Akiza, we've been through so much together. I thought I would never get you back from the Dark Signers, but when you came back to me I was beyond happy. And just before the finals of the WRGP I talked to your dad, and he gave me his blessing, and I was planning on doing this right after we won. But Zone and all that."
She knew where this was going and even more tears streamed down her cheeks. And Yusei had to take a few deep breaths as he was shaking terribly and he pulled out a small box, this caused Akiza to truly burst into tears.
"Akiza Izinski." Yusei said in the steadiest voice he could keep "Will you marry?"
It was if a bomb had been dropped, time had frozen, and she was falling all at one, her heart was pounding so hard she could feel it in her ears.
"Yes?" Yusei asked wide eyed
"Yes, I will."
"Yes I will marry you Yusei Fudo." She said and she collapsed to her knees and they both hugged and kissed and everyone burst into cheers and clapping and a few whistling
He then slowly and delicately placed the ring on her finger. The gem was a real diamond and was black and the band was real silver and sparkled and looked the stems of roses, at closer look she saw the outline of Rose in the black gem, it was the most beautiful peice of jewelry she had ever seen, along with her necklace he got her on their six month anniversary. They then kissed again and the sun had just come up at that very moment. It was the perfect moment in time for the newly engaged couple.......
