"Alright then, let's do this...." Yuji said, sighing and activating his Duel Disk.
"You can go first, Rakune-sama" the girl said, activating her Ice Duel Disk.
"Duel!" they both said, their Life Points increasing to 4000.
"You might regret letting me go first, Draw!" Yuji looked over the cards in his hand, thinking of a plan.

"For my first move, I'll Summon Magical Exemplar in Attack Mode!" He placed the monster on the disk.
"Then I'll activate the Field Spell, Magical Citadel of Endymion!" Yuji grinned as he activated the field spell, giving his Exemplar 2 counters.
"Lastly, I'll use Exemplar's effect, remove the two counters she has, and Special Summon Apprentice Magician from my hand, and use it's effect to give the Citadel a counter" he placed the monster on the field in Defense Mode.
"Then I'll Set a card, and end my turn".

"My my, His combo at work" Ketsuki said, now more interested at how the duel will go.

*Seth walks out of the duel arena and sees and hears the duel where Yuji is*

Seth: Hmm, maybe these people have more talent than my last opponent.

*Seth runs over to see the duel, he sees Erika, Juudai, and the others in the stands*

Seth: Oh, it's those two again.

*walks over to where they're seated and sits a small distance away*

Seth: Now, this is where the real dueling will be. ^_^

"I regret nothing, Rakune-sama!, Draw!" the girl looked over the cards in her hand, grinning.
"Alrighty, I think I'll activate Foolish Burial to send my Blizzard Dog in my deck to the Graveyard" the girl searched her deck, got the card, and placed it in the graveyard, shuffling her deck.
"Now I Summon Ice & Blizzard Recruiter!, Due to her Effect, I get to Special Summon my Blizzard Dog!" the monster appeared, and in a flash of light, the dog returned.
"And since he's a Tuner, I can increase his and my recruiters Level by 1!, And cause of his own effect, I can increase my Dog's Level by 1 cause I'm tuning him and my recruiter!" The two monsters jumped into the air.

'A level 8 Synchro?!' Yuji thought, grinning slightly at the challenge.

"Master of Ice and Snow, Leader of the Clan, Arise and lead your army to victory!, Synchro Summon!, Freeze them all!, Blizzard Master Heda!" she grinned as the man appeared.
"And cause of his effect, I'll look at the top five cards of my deck........" the girl checked the top five cards.
"And deal you damage equal to the number of "Blizzard" and "Ice" cards X600!" Yuji flinched as his life dropped to 1600, the girl shuffled her deck again.
"Heda!, Take down his Exemplar!" She said, the man nodded and cut down his Exemplar, dropping his life to 300.

Seth: Hmm, seems that duel is about to end. I wish that that Piercer guy didn't make me waste my time like that. Hopefully that person will be able to spring back.

*Seth looks at his cards in boredom*

Zach was itching for a duel now. He was watching the duel unfold with barely contained excitement and couln't help but cry out a cheer every time a good move was made.
If he didn't duel soon... He was afraid his OTHER side would boil over.
He kept murmurring to himself "Soon, soon, don't worry."
He hoped none of the others noticed... He didn't want them to know about his secret.
Edging closer to the group, he scanned them to see a willing duelist.
"Not Judai... He'd wipe the floor with me..."
Zach sighed and thought 'Guess I'll just have to wait till someone challenges ME...'

Judai gave Misawa an odd look.
"Injured...?"
His thoughts wandered back to when they were in the Duel Spirit world, trying to recall any event that could have injured him.
"...Nope, I'm fine! ...Did something happen?"
Keitaro looked on in anticipation, watching Yuji and the white-haired girl duel.
"Damn, he's in a pinch...you can pull through, Yuj!"
Judai cheered on as well.
"Just remember dude, the duel's not over until the last card is played!"

Judai smiled and scratched the back of his head nervously.
"Oh, sorry about that. I tend to get caught up in duels...even when I'm just watching them."
He held out his hand for Erika to shake.
"I'm Yuki Judai."
Keitaro waved at Erika.
"I'm Shikimori Keitaro. Hey...is this your first year here? I don't think we've seen you around before."

"Yep, it's my first year here," replied Erika. "I flew in a little while ago. I'm a junior pilot," she said, grinning.
"What year are you guys in?"

( "He held out his face for Erika to shake." I'd love to shake Judai's face. xD)

(LMAO ...Darn English language, typos, and muscle memory. My fingers move on their own on a keyboard. >_> And English is the only language I speak fluently! DX ...I fixed it, by the way.)

"Oh, no wonder," Keitaro laughed slightly.
I would've felt bad if she was an upperclassman and we never noticed, he thought to himself.
"I'm a second-year myself."
"I'm in my third year," Judai smiled. "...But I'll be sad once I graduate from here. Duel Academy's a fun place."

"Oh, ok," said Erika. "So, who's dueling right now? I heard you guys say the guy in the pinch's name is Yuji... But the girl with the white hair calls him Rakune-sama..." Erika tilted her head in slight confusion.

*Seth watches nervously and notices that Juudai seems to know Yuji well, he scoots a bit more to where Juudai is seated*

Seth: Um, Hello again. Do you happen to know the names of these duelists? Just to know.

"You're move, Rakune-sama" The girl said, sticking her tongue out.

"The one who's in a pinch is my Baka Brother Yuji, he won't be there for long..." came Hana's voice as she entered the Duel ring with Emiko in tow.
"You really hold no punches, Hana" Came Yuji's annoyed voice, he sighed and drew a card.

'Alright, I gotta think of something, or else she'll end me next turn....'
"Alright then, I play Card of Sanctity, So draw till you have six cards" Yuji said, drawing his 4 cards and the girl drawing 2.
'Yes!'
"I trigger my Trap, Pitch-Black Power Stone!, then, I'll destroy it with Mystical Space Typhoon!" His spell destroyed the trap, moving it's 3 counters to the Citadel, and giving it a fourth counter cause of his Typhoon.
"Next, I use Spell Power Grasp to give Citadel a counter, and it gains a sixth counter cause it itself was a Spell...." Yuji grinned as he added a second Spell Power Grasp to his hand.

"I know what's next...." Emiko said, smiling slightly.

"I remove six counters from my Citadel, to Special Summon Endymion, the Master Magician!" He slapped his second ace on his Duel Disk.
"And due to his effect, I add Mystical Space Typhoon back to my hand, now I discard my second Spell Power Grasp, to destroy Heda!" He discarded the card, and Heda exploded, the girl frowned as she sent the monster to the Graveyard.
"Now I tribute Apprentice Magician to Summon Blizzard Princess!, Now both of you, go and attack her directly!" Both Spellcaster nodded and charged at the girl, their combined attacks draining her Life Points to 0.

"That was a fantastic match," commented Erika, clapping. "Great comeback."
Erika turned to her head to face the new people that came into the ring.
"So, who are you guys, then?"

"Hana, Yuji's younger sister..." Hana said.
"I'm Emiko Kimikura" Emiko said, bowing to Erika slightly.

"Alright now, I won, who exactly are you, and WHY are you calling me Rakune?" Yuji asked the white haired girl, She smiled.
"You won so I guess I should fess up, My name's Yuki, my family has served yours for a LONG time, Rakune-sama, and I am here to serve you!" the girl known as Yuki said, laughing and the ice Duel Disk vanishing as she put her deck into a pocket on the side of her Kimono.
"... Say what now?" Yuji asked, a dumbstruck look on his face.

Seth: That was an amazing strategy you did there. How were you able to win in such dire straits?

Keitaro shrugged at Erika.
"Beats me. If I knew, I'd tell you." XP

After Yuji won the duel, Judai grinned and greeted him down on the dueling platform.
"Awesome comeback, dude! Never give up when the tough get going!"
Keitaro followed shortly and raised his hand up slightly, suggesting a high five.
"Looks like you pulled through to the end. Great counter attack...!"

"Nice to meet you two. I'm Erika," she said, responding to Hana and Emiko. "I'll be right back..."
Erika followed Seth and Judai down to see Yuji.
She approached Yuji. "'Grats on the win, Yuji. But you know..." Erika grinned. "It seems you won much more than that!" Erika patted Yuji on the back, smiling intensely.
"Now, I'd like an iced tea..."

Yuji laughed nervously at the praise of his comeback, Accepting Keitaro's high-five.
"I-It wasn't anything Special, I just believed in my deck and it responded by giving me what I needed...." Yuji said, mainly to answer Seth's question.
"That is SO cheesy" Hana said, rolling her eyes while Yuji gave her a annoyed look. Yuki gave a curious look towards Judai and Keitaro, then her eyes widened.
"Oh!, Haou-sama!, Akio-sama!".

Seth: Believe? I don't think that mere confidence can be the key, but if it came from someone like him, it might be.

*thinks for a moment and asks Yuji*

Seth: You seem to be very talented. Do you feel troubled being challenged again?

Zach burst out laughing suddenly wihtout warning.
"Belief? Ha! What a load of rubbish! A deck is a tool constructed and used by a duelist! Not some animal with varying feelings!"
Zach's demeanor had changed, he seemed almost full of himself now.
"I'm sick of this waiting around! If someone would kindly voluteer to duel me, I'll show you what duelling is about, raw strategy and power!"
Zach seemed to almost cackle when he finished his sentence. Apart from his hair and eyes, his featurs seemed to have become more devious, as if he was a different person.
'Hopefully now the games will begin' he thought to himself.

Judai and Keitaro looked at one another, then back to Yuki.
"...D-Did you just call me...Haou...?" Judai asked, still stunned by what she told him.
"Then you must have known us...back when we were our past selves..." Keitaro reasoned aloud.

Judai then heard Zach's words.
Who does this guy think he is...?! he thought, not too happy with what was just heard.
"A deck...," Judai started as he turned to Zach, "...Is a duelist's soul! It's not just some tool like you think it is!"
The Osiris Red student clenched his fist in anger.
"...I'll duel you...and show YOU what dueling is really about!" he volunteered, holding out his duel disk and activating it.

Erika agreed with Judai.
"Not cool, kid. There's really more to decks and cards than you think there is."
Erika stepped forward alongside Judai.
"...You wanted to duel me?" asked Erika, activating her own duel disk. "I'll teach you a lesson you won't ever forget. Pick between us," said Erika, angrily.

"More of my family having ancient scrolls and books about the past lives" Yuki said, shrugging slightly.
"Oh?, Then let me tell you something, Have you ever heard of the 'Duel Spirit World'?, That is a place where the Duel Monsters game, and every monster card, is real, so yes, they do have feelings of their own, smart***" Yuji said, a annoyed look at Zach, he sighed and turned back to Seth.
"Sure I don't mind, anytime you want to, tell me and we can..."

"Ararara, He just made Judai mad" Rin said, laughing slightly.
