“Of course! It’s important that I get her back home!”
Sapphire looked up from the notes she was studying to find that Yugi was talking on the phone with someone who vowed to help the two any way she can. There was a moment of silence before he said: “If you really want to help her, then come on over. I’ll see you in a few weeks. Take care.”
He hung up the phone and approached her.
“Was that your friend?” Sapphire asked.
“Yep. She’s coming over in a few weeks to help you out,” Yugi answered. “Hopefully, she’ll have some answers as to what’s going on.”
“You never told me about her,” she mentioned. “What’s she like?”
“Well,” he began with a small blush. “She can be a little...what’s the word...”
He jumped with a start, startling Sapphire as well. “Don’t do that!” he said, looking down at the Puzzle. Sapphire just giggled in response.
“I guess that’s a downfall of having a spirit residing with you,” she mentioned. “You never know when he’s going to surprise you.”
“Anyway,” he began once again. “She can be a little precocious, but her heart is in the right place. She’s the regional champion of Duel Monsters in this world.”
“Answer us, Sis!”
“Hey, Wynn! Get out here!”
A search was called by Dark Lucius to find Wynn once she didn’t report back. The Charmers scoured the city for her the past few days, and he even said to destroy it just to find her if they can. The trio, now in casual clothes, met up at the plaza.
“Any luck?” Hiita asked.
“Nope,” Aussa answered.
“We have to keep trying,” Eria told them. “If she were out here somewhere, she’s probably hiding somewhere less populated.”
“I’ll check the pier,” Aussa told them. “You two, continue your search through the city.”
“Right,” Hiita and Eria affirmed. All three went off.
“The Black Clown game shop?” Sapphire asked.
“Yep,” Yugi answered. Both of them were at the building Wynn was in when she met Duke. “My friend Duke said that he wants us to meet someone there.”
The two entered the shop to find that it wasn’t busy as before, but still had a fair few in, what with the weather getting warmer in Yugi’s home dimension. They took an elevator up a few floors
The doors opened and they stepped out to find an arena. Wynn and Duke were also there and in the middle of a game of Dungeon Dice Monsters. “All right, Strike Ninja! Take out her last heart point!” Duke commanded.
One of the monsters on the playing field swiftly ran up to Wynn’s side of the playing field and jumped. Throwing a ninja weapon at a glowing heart, the small daggers made a direct hit, dimming it.
“Ohh...” Wynn moaned. “And I was on a roll, too...”
“You’ll get better in time!” Yugi encouraged her while she stepped off the arena’s podium.
Within a skyscraper with a sign that had the letters “KC” on it at night, Hiita stood within an empty room, now back in her robes. They had no luck finding Wynn and every chance they took to catch up to her, she was off, and the search had to start all over again.
Hiita was frustrated.
And a frustrated Hiita is a dangerous Hiita.
Her staff appeared in a flash of red light and she took hold of it. “Time to get her attention,” she declared.
