Both Bakura’s Diabound and the almighty god Obelisk were both launched backwards into opposite walls. Atem and Bakura cringed, each feeling the lash of the damage taken by their monsters as they were called back into their respective dia dhanks.
“He withstood the assault of an Egyptian god,” Seto marveled at Diabound’s strength.
“This isn’t over, Pharaoh,” Bakura snarled through the stabbing pain in his chest. “You and your newlywed have no idea what I have planned for you.”
Atem glared at his adversary. “You stay away from my wife, Bakura!”
“Or what,” the thief challenged, his confidence never faltering. “You’ll seal my Diabound in stone? I think we’ve all seen the result of that little escapade.”
The young pharaoh growled in frustration.

Well, alright, I had a wonderful time horseback riding, but essentially everything else was fairly mundane. There wasn't much of a transition from princess by marriage to queen. Even Atem admitted that the coronation ceremony had been fairly overestimated. I had trained myself to refer to Atem as "Pharaoh" aloud, though I always thought of him as Atem. Still, life returned to some semblance of normalcy.I Will Protect You...Chapter 17[Yu-Gi-Oh fanfic]3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
However, one morning, several weeks after the coronation, I awoke with the strangest feeling in the pit of my stomach.

I lightly tapped on the Pharaoh's bedchamber door.
"Come in, Rhea," a hoarse, but familiar voice said. I tenderly opened the door to enter, as if any sudden movement would launch the man back into his previous unconscious state.
"You…called for me, sire?"
The king nodded. I was rather surprised to see him sitting upright in his bed. "Yes, dear. Please, close the door behind you. I must speak with you in private."
I closed the door. The Pharaoh held his hand out toward the chair beside his bed.
I sat. Nervously, I began to wonder why I'd been summoned. Why did the Pharaoh want to speak with me privately? What did he have to say that only I could hear?
As if he was reading my mind, the Pharaoh began, "You must be wondering why I called you in here, why I asked that we speak in such a secluded manner."
"Err, yes, sir."
He didn't answer right away. When he finally did speak, I was surprised by what he said.

Every bite of our meal was absolutely magnificent! Everything was prepared perfectly, and thanks to the natural heat of the desert, when we finally dove into our food, it hadn't cooled much, if at all. Even after about an hour of chatter, it still tasted as if it had just come out of the kitchen. The meat and fowl practically fell off the bone. It didn't taste anything like the fish I'd have at home. I didn't dare say this aloud, however, for I knew that noblemen considered fish unclean. The dates and figs were sweet and succulent. It was all to die for.
As I ate, though, I began to think about my home in the Market District. Many times, I would walk down the street and find a small child shivering in the corner of an alley. Sometimes they would have siblings with them. They were dirty and homeless and absolutely alone in the world. Those children were orphans like I was, but unlike me, they had not had the good fortune of finding someone like Karn. I once asked her if we could take th

"Absolutely not!" the Pharaoh exclaimed. "I will not allow it!"

"I don't want to hear your reasons for this, Atem. It is simply unacceptable." He heard his son growl under his breath, and sighed. "The girl saved your life, and you wish to repay her by forcing her Shadow Creature to be taken from her?"
Something had changed in his son, though what exactly, he had no idea. Atem used to be such bright, sweet child. But, over the years, he'd grown steadily darker and more serious. Aknamkanon had tried everything he could in order to find out what was wrong, but to no avail. Not even Mahad or Mana, Atem's closest friends, could get through to the Prince at this point. He'd pushed everyone in his life away.
"Why don't you ask her to join us for dinner," the King suggested.
"But she's a commoner!" Atem protested.
"She saved your life, Atem. You are still in her debt, whether you're Prince or not. She chose to protect you at great risk to her own safety
Feels Like Home - AndleyLove isn't something you can just dismiss into the wind, something you can forget about. True love strikes you at the worst moments and leaves you breathless. It leaves your soul, the very core of your existence, begging for more. Simply laying eyes upon that lucky person makes every single cell in your body vibrate with pure energy and unadulterated love. Their voice sends shivers down your spine and one look into their god-sent eyes is like a gift bestowed upon you by the highest powers of heaven. The smallest touch can be felt days afterwards, a delicate heat that warms even the darkest depths of your heart. Every heartbeat and electric impulse, all of it whispers their name through the life blood slipping through your veins; every breath and blink of your eyes exists because they do.Feels Like Home - Andley4 years ago in Romance More Like This

Ruled by the ignorant and brainless.
We all love the chaos,
And we think that war is painless.
It's dog eat dog,
Push and prod.
Persecuting everybody in the name of God.
The media's polluted.
Our government is convoluted,
And the rest of the world included.
What are we doing to ourselves?
Searching for cheap thrills,
We down pills,
Doing anything to fill
This void we find.
Thinking it's our hearts
But it's all in our minds.
All we wanna do is
Won't bow to you or anyone else.
But where's the meaning?
I can't understand the reason
For this blood we're bleeding,
The hate we're feeding,
And the pride we're seeding.
I hear you preach love,
But your words are dust
If I see no trust.
Leave it all to rust.
I can't live this lie,
And you can't deny-
That there's truth inside
These words of mine.
Kids, put away your toys.
Listen to my voice.
It's time to wise up, so stand up.

The Pharaoh smiled. "Look over there, Rhea," he said, pointing to the wall opposite him. "You see that gold circle hanging on the wall?"
"Bring it here."
The girl stood, crossing to the wall, and taking down the object in question. She returned to her chair, holding it carefully in her hands. There wasn't much to it. Just a simple gold-leafed, bronze ring about as big around as her head.
"This was my wife's headband. She bought it in the Market District, having saved up the money for it. She'd had her eye on it for years before she'd made enough to purchase it and make it hers. It was the only thing from her former life as a farm girl that she'd kept once we were married. She simply could not part with it, until she was on her deathbed.

Yugi Meets..... Part 1As Yugi ventured on, hoping to find the white rabbit once again, he came upon a forest. The path he was walking upon split into many different paths that lead through the forest. Each tree near each path had different signs on them, but the signs left Yugi very baffled. The signs were pointing left, right, up, down, diagonally and each sign would either say 'This Way' or 'That Way' or 'Wrong Turn' or 'Up' or anything random.Yugi Meets.....

"This is very odd," Yugi said to himself, since he was by himself. "How am I suppose to know which way to go when each sign seems to be telling me to go this way or that way."
Yugi looked up to the now nighttime sky. There were no stars in the sky but the moon was out, which was a little odd though. After all, if the moon was out, why weren't there any stars out to gaze down at him? Yugi pondered this as he stared at the moon, which was actually a crescent shape laying on its side to make it look like it was smiling at him. Yugi smiled one of his very cheerful smil

It had been three weeks since the doctor had given the Pharaoh his impending death sentence, and he would only wake for minutes at a time, at best. Everyone was beginning to worry, in their own way. Master Mahad had made his classes stricter and more difficult. Lady Isis spent her time by the fire, looking for any hopeful sign—so far, she had yet to find one. Karim would lock himself in one of the many libraries for hours on end. I often found Shada pacing in front of the Pharaoh's bedchamber doors. Priest Seto's sword-fighting practice got even more aggressive. Luckily, he practiced with a wooden target instead of an actual partner, or the partner would surely have died. Master Aknadin seemed concerned, though less so than the rest of us. The Prince never left his father's side. He would sit in a chair, and just watch and wait for him to wake up. The sight was heartbreaking.
Me, I put it upon myself to take food and water to the Prince whenever he needed it, since he refused to

I looked like your typical teenage girl who had just gone through a breakup, even though I'm a 20 year old guy. I was in my Hello Kitty pyjamas, the ones that he bought me on our 1 year anniversary. I remember opening them in a crowded restaurant and squealing in delight. He had shown just as much happiness when he opened his Batman pyjamas. That was four years ago today. I had asked him what he'd wanted for our anniversary this year, but he said to not get anything too expensive. I now saw why. I felt so stupid; I had actually gone and bought a ring!
