Noah jumped swiftly from tree-to-tree [a speed he’d been practicing for hours since the middle of the night] keeping an eye on everything around him. He stopped when he reached a tree close to the wall of Rensan, observing that it was the third wall he’d come to.
Another wall……secluded guy isn’t he…?
He climbed to the top of the tree, hiding himself in the brush to stay out of view, and saw more clearly that the shadows weren’t heading towards the town, but were being blocked by a force field that he was about a foot away from.
The blond tried reaching out to touch the force field—but instead of it shocking him, or his hand being rebounded off, a small hole opened up in the wall and got bigger as he stuck more of his hand through the wall.
But when shadows started crowding around it, he withdrew his hand and the force field snapped ba
TravelersThe air was crisp and the skies were clear, yet an air of discomfort still was thick all around. The year was 2020, when wars had ceased, pollution had cleared, and the nations were in harmony—minus a few economic disagreements.
Two sixteen-year-old boys stood in the principal’s office of the old high school of an old town, one that has not had a name for many years.
The principle let two folders fall upon her desk as she looked up at then with slight exasperation.
“Alright boys…” She sighed tiredly. “This is the third time you two have been in here. Might I ask why this time…?”
The elder of the two, a taller boy with a wider build and jet-black hair that stretched to his shoulders, looked to her with his light hazel eyes with his back straight, not looking guilty in the slightest.
“Those other two boys were picking on my brother, ma’am. They were shoving him into a wall outside the library.”
YGO: AD - Author's EpiphanyFor countless hours the man had sat there.
Violet irises were hidden behind closed eyes and a wind with no source blew the rigid blond locks from his face.
Yugi sat and listened, waiting for mental directions, a sign, something that could set the three of them at peace, at least for a little while.
Unbeknownst to him, another slowly came closer, one with a strikingly similar resemblance.
Atem sighed in slight exasperation when he found Yugi meditating again. This itself was not an issue; not telling the two of them when he DID go off to mediate WAS an issue.
'I can't believe he still HAS that old habit…' Atem thought to himself with a shake of his head.
As he came closer to Yugi, Atem sent out subtle mental pulses so that he wouldn't surprise the former while he was meditating.
Except that these pulses were rebounded off the closer Atem got.
The latter sighed irritably.
'Great…he's subconsciously put up a field…'
However this was not an issue either.

(*Back-tracking to when Noah left to face Valerie.)
Noah ran off into the forest, leaving Atem shocked and hurt. In the next minute, the pharaoh's eyes narrowed and the shock left from his face.
…He's not going to make it through this……not alone—he never does…
He was about to follow after—but turned around to see Jessie rushing towards him.
"…to go face Valerie…"
"I tried to stop him—he wanted to do it by himself…"
She straightened, a glare coming onto her face. "Well I'm gonna have to disappoint him then!"
And then she sprinted in the direction Noah had gone.
"Wait!—Jessie—!" Atem called after her.
When she didn't come back, he silently cursed to the sky before going after he

Another day started with the sun shining, the overcast finally clearing up enough to allow the weather to warm up to the absolute perfect temperature.
The three guys were at the Game Shop, having stayed overnight just to spend a little time together.
Atem and Yugi were the first ones up (as usual) and both were in the main room when Noah finally came down—at around noon.
The former of the pair half-smirked. "Prone to lateness still…?"
The blond scowled at him. "Mornin' to you too—"
His voice cracked on the last word, only for him to wince in pain afterwards.
The other two straightened, but then Atem looked to him worriedly. "…Are you alright—?"
Noah gave a small smirk. "Yeah I'm fine—It was probably just a small crack—"
He winced as the word got caught again.
Amethyst eyes widened for both people, but

A couple hours later Noah was sitting by the lake, staring upward at the two suns; a bit of negative nostalgia still lingered, as nearby where he was sitting was where he'd been stabbed—and it had left a stain of blood upon the grass.
After a bit, he put a hand to his head, groaning quietly to himself in pain. Ever since the Duel, he started having this pain in his head—as if it was a constant small headache.
…geez……I've never had a headache like this before…
He looked up to the suns again.
Is it because there's less light than usual…?
The blond turned and smiled to Atem, who sat down next to him.
"Are you alright…?"
"Yeah, I'm fine……I-It's just a headache…"
The pharaoh then looked up to the suns too; they looked up to the suns before Noah finally sighed.
"……I have this gut

Noah smirked to Atem as they spaced out. "You know if you lose, you'll just have to live with Ikata's mockery, right?"
The latter glared, but smirked at the same time. "That is not going to happen…"
"We'll see, won't we?"
From down below, Jessie covered her eyes from the sun, even though she couldn't see above the clouds.
"…Are they Dueling—?"
Joey squinted up. "I think so…"
Yugi smiled to each. "Then why don't we watch?"
He took gentle hold of Joey and Jessie and took off, each hanging on for dear life once he had lifted off.
Soon enough, they were above the clouds.

Noah drew a card. "I'll go first!"

Jessie paced back and forth in front of the gate. "Where is he? He should've been back by now……Right—?"
Joey and Yugi were sitting nearby, watching the gate as well, and then the former smirked slightly. "He'll be fine Jess. Besides, I know he's gonna wanna hear how we kicked shadow-butt. There weren't even that many…"
She looked back towards the gate.
…come on…relax……Atem's gonna show up anytime! He's gonna show up, be completely fine, and tell us Noah's in safe hands…
Right then, she saw something coming in the distance; her heart pounded a little faster as she gave a small smile.
"Omigosh—I-I think it's him!"
Yugi and Joey got up; Jessie squinted to see if she could tell who—or what—it was. However when it came into view, the three all let out a gasp at the same

Much later in the day, close to night, Atem came out from the Healing Area, determination and confidence surrounding him as an aura.
Yugi smiled when he saw him coming; he didn't know what it was exactly, but he felt the radiating confidence bolster his spirits a bit.
"Good you're here……We need to think of a new plan."
Yugi laid the map on the table once all had come around. "We're just going to have to invade Rensan on our own; we don't have any other options. It appears that Rensan is built on a defense mechanism; there's this first layer here," he pointed to the map. "Where there are a lot of Aku-Anei gathered up that protect the city as a sort of protective field."
He turned to Honda. "That's where we'll need you."
The commander half-smirked and nodded, accepting the task.
Yugi turned back to the map. "After that, two of us will get in through an opening and get th

Outside, a fire does no good: the heat simply travels upwards. However, this place also raises some difficult questions. I estimate that I’ve put eight miles between myself and the crash site.
