Jaden, Alexis, Syrus, Chumley, Bastion, Jesse, Atticus, Zane, Aster, Blair, Mindy, Jasmin and Chazz had been through a lot of stuff while they were at Duel Academy, and they all always seemed to get somewhat thrown together every time some serious stuff was going down. And now that they had all graduated they all came to some kind of unspoken agreement that they were friends in some weird way. But Jasmin was now dating her brother Atticus. Mindy dating Aster. And most supringly Chazz asked Blair out.
They all decided to go to Italy to try and get away from all the crazy things they had been through at the Academy and it sounded like a good idea at the time. Everyone was somewhere, but Alexis was once again with Jaden, but for the first time in a long time it was just them. But they still like the rest of the guys had their Duel Disk's on their wrists and Jaden still had his bag and Pharaoh was walking with them.
"So Jaden, what do you think so far?" She said as they walked down the street and were just looking around
"I think it looks wonderful, the architecture, the scenery, everything." He said
"Huh. He never struck me as the type who could admire a place like this." She thought to herself
"Ask her out Jaden." Yubel said to him inside his head
"Will you but out!" He shouted out loud, he often had these moments where it seemed like he was talking to himself, this made him look crazy
"Yubel and Banner again?" She asked
"Huh? Oh yeah, just Yubel. Keeps bugging me with something- it's nothing. Uh wanna get some coffee or something?" Jaden said
"Uhh, yeah Jay, sure." Alexis said "Come on Girl! Pull your shit together and ask him out!" She thought to herself, now she seemed like the crazy one, Jaden noticed
"You okay Alexis?" He asked
"Uh, yeah. I think I see a coffee shop up that way."
They then walked up further and went in and order their coffee, after getting their drinks, they went outside and sat at one of the tables and sipped their coffee in silence.
"Okay, here it goes." They were both thinking
"Jaden-" She started to say
"Alexis-" He started to say
"You go first." Jaden said
"Okay. Jaden, there's.... something, I've been wanting to tell you." She said
"And what was that something?"
"Jaden, since you come to the Academy, things haven't been the same... in a good way. And I've always admired your sense of character, you're carefree, funny at times, and while you never made honor roll you're a great duelist."
"What can I say that's me. But I had something similar to say."
"Oh, and what was that?"
"I always thought you were the toughest of us. You always gave it your all and never backed down, and you taught me a few things, but I also admired you. I guess what I'm trying to say is I was wondering if you would want-"
He was cut off by Chazz shouting his name, he and other guys were with him.
"Oh come on, can't we just have one moment alone." They both thought
"Well, I hope I'm not interrupting your guy's date." Chazz said slyly
"We are not on a date Chazz." Alexis said firmly
"Lexi, he's just joking." Atticus said
"Yeah Lexi. He was joking." Mindy said joking as well as she knew Alexis hated it when others used her nicknames
"You may be dating my brother but don't think i won't bring bodily harm to you." Alexis said
But then the sky started growing dark with black clouds as the wind started blowing hard and the clouds began to swirl. Then a Dragon appeared, it looked like it was made of fire. They were all little shocked but after a year at the academy and all they'd been through they were used to something like this happening.
"Oh come on! Can we not go a day without something like this happening?" Jaden said
But then something else happened that they weren't expecting. As the Dragon touched down twelve people emerged.
"Well that's something new." Jaden added
But then they realized who they were. It was Yugi Muto and his friends! All ten then hurried toward them.
"Yami, where are we?" Yugi asked
Then the ghost of the Pharaoh appeared.
"We are ten years in the future. And here come the people we need now."
"Yugi Muto, in the flesh!" Jaden said
"I'm sorry who are you?"
"Don't you remember me? You gave me your Winged Kuriboh." Jaden said as he pulled out the card
"Jaden, this is Yugi ten years before you and he met." Atem said "But we don't have time for explanations at the very moment. Everything will be explained at our final destination, thirty years into the future in New Domino City. We must all hurry it is vital all of you come."
Jaden still had his bag and Pharaoh was right next to him, Jaden then scooped him up and put him comfortably in his bag and they all were eaten by the Dragon and headed into the future for this New Domino City....
