Chapter 5: Yugi Returns
Shizuka made her way through an immense conglomerate of demoniac teenagers. She was
looking forward to seeing Seto. They hadn't spoken since the night of the thunderstorm.
The night that they... Shizuka blushed furiously as she thought of what her brother would
think if he knew. After she left Seto that night, Shizuka went home to have a altercation
with Katsuya about staying out so late. He just worries about me, she thought amorously.
Sometimes he just takes it too far.
Shizuka's thoughts trailed off as a vigorous force ripped through her body, sending her
books flying across the hall. Sorry about that. I wasnt really watching where
I was going. Shizukas hand stopped mid-air as she the voice registered in her
brain. No, It couldnt be him. Shizuka slowly raised her head to the boy standing
before her. Yugi, when did you get back? Last night. I would have called
you but by the time that I got settled in it was so late that I figured you were in
bed, Yugi said, staring into her eyes with a deep, warm expression. God how
shed missed that. Look do you want to go somewhere to talk, he asked
her. I am late to class, she replied. How about at lunch.
That sounds great Shizuka, Yugi replied, taking her hand and softly laying a
kiss upon it. I missed you. Why is he acting this way, Shizuka wondered as she
watched Yugi walk to his classroom. It was going to be a long day.
When the lunch bell rang, Shizuka was the first person out of the class. Shizuka wanted to
know what happened with Yugi and Anzu. A part of her still had feelings for Yugi and she
wanted him to apologize and profess his love for her once more. Was this wrong? It is not
like Seto said in so many words that he wanted to be with her. How does someone elucidate
the situation? Did they make any sort of commitment when they had sex, or was it just a
one night stand? The fact that Seto never called her made her think the latter and only
served to add to her confusion. In the end, it was her confusion that made her decision
for her. Yugi, there you are. Shizuka said as she took his hand.
Seto anxiously searched the jam packed lunch room for Shizuka. He desperately needed to
talk to her. Seto had spent the entire weekend trying to settle the confusion and
emotional turmoil that had plagued him since the night that he had let Shizuka into his
heart. Seto needed to tell Shizuka the realization that he had come to. At first he had
not known what he felt. He was appallingly confused about the situation and he just needed
time to think. He needed time to sort out his emotions. Seto was sure that Shizuka needed
time too so he didnt call her or talk to her for a couple of days. Seto hoped that
she wasnt mad. It had been a long time since anyone had been able to get to him like
she did. He had never realized that he was lonely until he met her. Until he knew what it
meant to feel needed.
Across the street at a small diner, Yugi and Shizuka sat over a diminutive table sharing a
pizza. So what happened with you and that girl? Yugi twitched nervously under
Shizukas scrutiny. Things didnt work out, he replied.
Thats okay though, because I was sort of hoping that you and I could get back
together. I have missed you Shizuka. I missed you too Yugi, its just
that, well, I have sort of been seeing someone, I think. Nothings official yet but I care
about him and I dont want to jeopardize any chances that have, Shizuka
reasoned, with herself as much as with Yugi. Thats okay baby. He doesnt
have to know. Shizuka stared into Yugis chocolate brown eyes wanting to
believe him, but in her heart she knew that what she was doing was wrong.
Hey, Mai. Have you seen Shizuka lately, Seto asked. Yeah Seto. I think
that she said that she was going to the pizza place across the street.
Thanks, he replied. Seto decided that he couldnt wait to talk to her so
he left the cafeteria. I just need to put these books away before I go talk to
her, Seto said to himself.
Shizuka, he doesnt have to know. No one does. We will just keep this between
me and you okay? Yugi leaned towards her and gently pressed his lips to hers.
Shizuka responded to Yugis kiss by wrapping her arms around his neck and slipping
her tongue into his satin mouth. Shizuka couldnt understand herself why she was
acting so wanton. She still had feelings for him but she knew in her heart that things
were over between them. So why was she kissing him. She briefly remebered the way that
Setos lips had tasted when they made love. The way that they felt against her skin.
She remebered how he had pressed them so softly against her raging pulse. I love him, she
realized. I am madly and desperately in love with Seto Kaiba. Why am I kissing yugi? I
should be kissing the man that I love. Shizuka tried to pull back, but before she could
end the kiss, an incensed voice interrupted her frantic thoughts. Shizuka turned to see
Seto standing before her with a crushed look upon his face. What have I done, she thought.
