As the day came to an end, Cynthia finally returned Chris to her father, asking Dartz directly if it was true that Tomoya was male when he gave birth to Chris, and if they should be worrying about any other pregnancies from the other teens.  Dartz and the other darkness were quick to reassure the woman that yes, Tomoya was completely male when he had conceived and birthed Chris and that no, there would be no unplanned pregnancies.  Even though an akhu and even ms-n hwi males could bear children, it was only after the casting of a specific spell that required the cooperation of both parties involved. 

Reassured, the woman had left with her husband, leaving the ancient beings to their own devices.  It was through an unanimous, unspoken decision, that the yami's decided to release their two final comrades then take their hikari back to their tents to "retire early" for the night.  So as the rest of the camp settled down to relax, each of the darks collected their lights and lovers, leading them away from the group by either physical means or contacting them through their links.

Feeling strong arms wrapping around his waist from behind, Yugi hummed contentedly and snuggled back into the warm embrace of his lover's arms.  "I was starting to wonder if you were going to show up today," the small teen commented.

"I'm sorry mry, I did not expect our lessons to take so long," Atem apologized sincerely to his light, burying his face in spiky tresses to press soft kisses to the top of the boy's head.  Yugi giggled and squirmed batting playfully at the darkness who decided to make a game of dodging his light's hand while continuing to rain kisses on his head.  Their game continued until Yugi ducked down and dropped out of Atem's encircling arms, glomping onto the taller teen from behind.

"Soooo~ what's the plan koi?" he asked, lifting up on his toes to press a soft kiss to the back of Atem's neck just below his hair.

"Mmm, well I was hoping you would want to make an early retreat," Atem murmured, arching his neck to allow Yugi room to explore.  ((Isis and Marik have been released, so we're done for tonight.  Ah, right there ari,)) he encouraged through their link when Yugi's lips found a particularly sensitive spot on his neck.  He had to stifle a soft moan of disappointment when the small teen stopped and pulled away.

"Not out here," the light whispered into his darkness' ear, blowing softly into the sensitive shell.  Shuddering in reaction, the tanned teenager grabbed hold of his pale lover's hand and led him away from the group heading fast towards their tent.  On their way out of the circle, the pharaoh caught sight of a familiar head of spiky blond hair weaving it's way slowly towards an unsuspecting Malik.  'Good luck, my friend,' he thought, knowing the modern teenager would prove to be quite the challenge to even someone as crazy and stubborn as Marik.

'Behave yourself Marik.  Just get your akhu and take him somewhere isolated without bothering anyone.  Bleh.  She acts like I'm going to act like a complete lunatic,' the lavender-eyed male thought sulkily as he slinked through the crowded camp, his floor length, tan coat pulled closed and belted shut over his mid-thigh length shenti to help him blend in.  Looking around the area, he finally spotted his akhu sitting on the outside of one of the fires by himself, staring contemplatively into the flames and Marik felt his breath catch at the sight his beautiful light made with the firelight glinting off his cornsilk blond hair.  'By the gods, he's grown into a gorgeous creature,' the yami thought admiring the view for a moment.  Shaking himself internally to regain his focus, the tall darkness went on the move again this time not stopping until he was directly behind the teen.

Suddenly feeling like he was being watched, Malik sat up straight and looked around.  Twisting around to check behind him he would have screamed in shock at having another face right there if the owner hadn't clamped a hand over his mouth to silence him.  Bringing his fist up the teen hauled off to slug the man who'd grabbed him, only to have it grabbed and twisted behind his back.  Malik continued to struggle but it didn't take long before his attacker had him tied hand and foot with his mouth gagged before heading back into camp.  A fact that greatly confused the captive teen, didn't kidnappers usually want to get away from other people?

'Have fun with your soul mate, little brother,' Rishid thought as he watched Marik leave with Malik trussed up and slung over his shoulder.  Having known the destiny awaiting his younger sibling since he had turned sixteen, Rishid had been looking forward to the day that their clan would finally be able to welcome back the kkwy and akhu.  After all, as a direct descendant of one of the surviving human members of the royal court, he had access to information that the rest of the world did not.

Mai was exhausted, physically and mentally.  Her back ached from hauling all the boxes of paperwork and artifacts around and her brain was positively drained from all the categorizing she'd done.  She swore she'd be labeling in her sleep all night!

So the young woman had begged off of joining in the evening festivities in order to get to bed early.  With a long tired groan, the blonde college student collapsed face first on her bed, realizing that she still hadn't changed only after she had landed.  Deciding that she didn't care, the woman simply lay there trying to muster up enough energy to turn off the lantern.

"Perhaps I can be of assistance," a soft feminine voice spoke out, startling the blonde.

Mai's head jerked up and she looked over her shoulder at the person who had just entered her tent.  Standing at the foot of her cot was a beautiful green-eyed Egyptian woman.  She was dressed in a floor length tan dress with a gold belt and a tan half cape attached to a gold collar.  Her mid-waist length raven black hair was pulled back from her face with lengths on either side wrapped in gold bands and a gold tiara with an emerald stone in the center adorning her forehead over a pair of gentle bluish-green eyes.  "Are you new here?" the blonde woman asked, blinking in surprise.  She'd never seen her before and yet Mai could swear that she knew her!

The raven-haired woman smiled, "Yes, you could say that.  My younger brother and I arrived just this evening."

Sitting up and suppressing a slight grimace, Mai smiled warmly at the new arrival, "Welcome to the madness, I'm Mai Kujaku, pleased to meet you." she said, standing and offering the other woman her hand.

Confused at the greeting, the Egyptian woman took it, simply holding it as she introduced herself.  "I am Isis."

"So are you supposed to be my new roommate, err tentmate?" the blonde asked, not seeming to notice or care that Isis had not let go of her hand yet.

"If you do not mind," the priestess replied, gently rubbing the knuckles of her light's hand.

"Not at all.  It'll be great to have some female company my own age, "Mai admitted, not realizing she'd returned the hold.

Giving the younger woman a gentle nudge, Isis led her light to lie back on her bed.  "Come, let me help with your back, I can tell it is bothering you." she told the other woman.

"Oh that's all right, we need to get you set up so you can get to bed and-" Mai was cut off by a gentle pressing of an index finger against her lips.

"As I said, your back is bothering you.  You shouldn't be doing anything to further aggravate it," the raven-haired woman replied, her tone indicating that she was not about to brook any sort of argument from the other woman.  Isis knew that with her light she had to be firm.  The strong-headed blonde was always one to push herself to her limits and beyond for the sake of duty until she either collapsed or was forced to rest and take care of herself.

Surrendering to the other woman's will Mai kicked off her shoes this time and throwing the covers to the side, lay down on her stomach to let Isis do as she wished.

Smiling down at the blonde, Isis kneeled down on a cushion she'd formed with her magic.  She had already taken steps to ensure their privacy and was fully ready to set about taking care of her mate.  The priestess wanted to restore the other woman's memories of their life before, but was content to wait until she had the blonde's permission.  She was not about to force anything on her beloved akhu.

Leaning over her light, Isis began to slowly knead the stiffened muscles in the blonde's shoulders, eliciting a groan from the prone woman.  Knowing that to be a positive sound, the priestess continued her work, slowly moving down to work out the kinks further down the other woman's spine.  As she worked, Isis slowly began to convert the bed into something a bit larger and far more comfortable for the both of them.

Seeing her mate's eyes closed and a happy smile adorning her face, the darkness slowly slipped her hands beneath her light's shirt to touch the pale skin directly, never ceasing the soothing, kneading motion of her hands.  Mai squirmed a bit at the change, but didn't stiffen and made no sign of protest, allowing the priestess to continue.  Moving her hands up very slowly, Isis began pushing up the other woman's shirt little by little, each time moving back down to where she'd first touched skin and then just a tiny bit lower.

Eventually her hands had reached the other woman's bra strap and she had managed to push Mai's pants down a few inches, then taking a deep breath, Isis softly asked her light if she could move into a better position to continue.  Feeling drowsy and very relaxed, Mai easily agreed not realizing that the other woman meant to climb onto the bed and straddle her!

Nervous, Mai started to protest when Isis calmly reassured her that this was the easiest and most effective way for her to work and promptly began massaging the blonde's back again, being sure not to touch anything she hadn't before until her light had relaxed under her hands once more.

With a swiftness Mai would not have expected, the Egyptian woman had unhooked the blonde's bra to better massage the skin beneath without rubbing the fabric harshly into her skin.  The orchid-eyed woman would have protested, but the wonderful sensations made it impossible as she nearly purred from the treatment.  When Mai began to make little humming noises, Isis worked her way back down carefully kneading the skin and muscles in the same manner as before.  This time though, she moved her hands much lower, massaging the other woman's buttocks firmly.  This time Mai groaned and squirmed a bit again, but didn't protest which made the darkness above her smile.

Deciding it was time to move forward again, Isis drew her hands up Mai's back, this time massaging the muscles on her sides.  As she reached the area just under Mai's breasts, she made sure to lightly brush against the sensitive mounds with every motion, relishing in the soft squirming from her prone mate.  Again, the priestess took her motions downward again, this time though when she reached the edge of her light's pants she slipped her hands beneath them and began kneading the skin on the other woman's hips.  Mai inhaled sharply, but again made no motion to stop her, some unnamed feeling deep inside telling her that she could trust the woman above her and that this should be happening.

Still not receiving a protest, Isis removed both of their garments entirely with her magic and sat her bare body down on the back of her light's thighs, her hands curving around to knead the muscles in front on either side of Mai's womanhood.  Mai squeaked and squirmed a bit at suddenly finding herself naked with another naked woman on top of her, but she didn't have a lot of time to think about as the Egyptian woman quickly maneuvered her way between Mai's legs, spreading the creamy thighs and lifting the blonde's hips to give herself better access.

Blushing fiercely Mai looked back and gasped, her mind freezing and losing her words as she watched the hawk-like wings spreading out from the gorgeous woman's bare back.

Isis smiled sexily and gave her wide-eyed mate a gentle stroke to the damp curls of her womanhood.  The sharp inhale from her light encouraged her greatly and she carefully dipped a finger into the wet folds.  "It seems in fixing one problem I have caused another one, antyw mry akhu," she murmured, leaning over to press soft kisses from the base of her spine and further down.  "I shall have to take care of this as well, won't I?"
