Reawaken:  The Savior


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
