Lately, I've been having these blackouts.
It was kinda scary at first. I'd find myself in trouble, then next thing I knew, I was safe and the one who threatened me was no longer a threat.
My friends thought it was me. And so did I.
It wasn't until after Death-T that I could remember any of it. Ushio, Sozoji, Goro, and numerous others. I had beaten them all in a game. And yet, I hadn't done anything at all.
When I remembered, I didn't just remember all the games I'd played with them. I remembered him.
Mou hitori no boku(1).
The darkness within me. My yami. My protector.
I don't know what he looks like. I just know he wants to protect me and the ones I care for.
Warmth, caring, security, devotion. These feelings always envelop me as he takes control. I didn't tell Anzu or Jonouchi about that part. They'd just worry unnecessarily. Mou hitori no boku just wants to protect me. Why he does, I'm not entirely sure, but I like it.
I think he came from the puzzle. I didn't start blacking out until after I solved it.
I don't care.
Even if he's just a product of my mind, he's still mine.
Maybe someday I'll get to meet him.
1 - the other me, this is how Yugi refers to his other self most of the time
