Yu-Gi-Oh GX: The Wrath of Viper

By RealmofHearts

Romance / Scifi

Prologue

In the five years since they had been there, Jaden Yuki and his friends preferred to forget the dimension known as Dark World, a feat which Jaden found most difficult to enact because of his time there as the Supreme King and the bond he now shared with friend turned enemy turned friend again duel spirit Yubel. But it was done, and Dark World only became a distant memory.

Jaden and his friends graduated later in the year, with Jaden himself leaving on a self appointed quest to help potential duellists get in touch with Duel Spirits. The others all went their separate ways. Alexis Rhodes and Jesse Anderson both went to Duel University and became Duel Researchers as a result of their studies. Syrus Truesdale joined his old friend Chumley Huffington as a card designer for Industrial Illusions. Bastion Misawa remained at Duel Academy, working as the school’s first ever electrical engineer and power monitor. Zane Truesdale, Atticus Rhodes and Aster Phoenix remained successes on the pro duelling circuit, with Chazz Princeton joining them as their fiercest rookie competitor. Zane later left to study medicine. Blair Flannigan’s studies accelerated and she was able to graduate one year early. Tyranno Hassleberry first volunteered for palaeontology work, but ended up working as a pilot for Kaiba Corp. Marcel Bonaparte graduated on year after them and began working as Bastion’s apprentice.

Now five years onwards finding the school too quiet without them Dr. Vellian Crowler, along with his co-workers Jean-Louise Bonaparte, Fonda Fontaine and Chancellor Sheppard, decided to arrange a school reunion for them. All but five answered to the invites. Alexis and Jesse had been funded by both Industrial Illusions and Kaiba Corp to undertake a project to study all the duelling dimensions, with Syrus and Chumley also part of the project to observe and design any monsters not yet created for the famous card game.

The fifth person was Jaden. He had not been seen or heard from since he had left, something which had left Alexis concerned and Jesse heavily disgruntled. Alexis was concerned as she had fallen for her happy go lucky close friend in their school years but she never worked up the courage to admit it. For her those feelings did not go away, in fact they grew stronger the more she missed him.

Unbeknownst to Alexis Jaden missed her as well. At first he missed her as much as he had anyone else but over time he began to miss her more than the others. Verbally, he was clueless as to why he was feeling that way. It took an impatient Yubel to finally press the point that he was in love with Alexis.

So that was it, he thought at the time. His mind was not really that surprised as it remembered for him all the times he and Alexis had supported each other. His heart however took a leap as a warm fire gently burned in it as he thought of her.

Perhaps he decided now was the time to go back.


He stopped where he was and slung his backpack off of his shoulders.

“Jaden.” Yubel spoke from within him. “What are you doing?”

“I should have told her years ago,” was all he answered as he zipped the pack open.

“You didn’t know what your feelings were then and you still didn’t when I told you they were.”

“Which is why I need to tell her now, and I’m not gonna hold back.”

Yubel appeared beside him, knelt down and placed a comforting hand on his shoulder.

“I know you’re not. I’m always with you,” she smiled. “But should you get romantic with her, promise me one thing?”

“What?”

“Let me know beforehand so I don’t actually have to witness it.”

Jaden held back a laugh, knowing what she meant. Ever since they had bonded together, Yubel was privy to every feeling and sensation he had.

“No problem. Ah, there it is,” he said as he pulled the Duel Academy communicator out of the pack.

“I haven’t turned this on since we left. Hope it still works.”

He flicked the power switch to on. The screen lit up with the Duel Academy insignia and then flashed to his account screen. He let out a sigh of relief which was then interrupted by a beep. He looked at the screen. There was a notice now on the screen.

“Oh,--- FOUR HUNDRED AND FORTY SEVEN MESSAGES?” he screamed in panic.

A sweat droplet appeared on Yubel’s forehead as she shrugged.

“That’s what happens when you have it turned off for five years.”

Jaden stole a glare at her before accessing the messages. The first twenty or so were text messages made on graduation night enquiring to where he was. Majority of the remaining ones, over three hundred and fifty of them, were video messages of Alexis saying she wanted to talk and see him again. Seeing her miserable caused his heart pain.

Then he got to the final message, the invite to the reunion.


Jaden Yuki,

You are hereby invited to a special celebration at Academy Island to reunite with old friends and former schoolmates to converse and frivolate for one week commencing on the thirteenth of September this year. Please RSVP at your quickest convenience.

Sincerely,

Dr. Vellian Crowler

PhD in Duelling


“What do you think, Yubel?” he asked.

“Sounds like a good opportunity to meet up with her again,” Yubel mused.

Jaden turned to her in surprise. “Okay, what’s going on? You usually get jealous in things like this.”

Yubel sighed with impatience as he had brought up a hurtful reminder of their past.

“That’s because I was foolish irrational lovesick idiot of a Duel Spirit, Jaden. I thought I was in love with you and I became obsessive to have you return love to me. But when we bonded, I realised you still loved me, but only as a friend. And--- I was glad to have even that after what I did to you and your friends.”

“I don’t get jealous anymore, Jaden, as I now love you as a friend should. Alexis is the one for you, I knew that, you now know that. So trust your feelings and follow your heart. And should you make a mistake I’ll be there to help you correct it.”

Jaden listened to her talk and wiped away the tears that were emerging from his eyes.

“Thanks Yubel,” he said as he typed in the reply to the message. He pressed send.

“There. All set.”

“Good, now I can correct your first mistake.”

“Huh, what would that be?”

“Simple question, Jaden. Where are we?”

Jaden snapped to attention. He looked to his left and then to his right. All around him and Yubel was an open grassy plain.

“Uhhh---

“Yes, as I thought,” Yubel smirked.

“How am I gonna get to Duel Academy if I don’t even know where we are? ”he yelled out to the sky.

Yubel shook her head. Lucky for him I do.

staca1027: Amazing,wonderful,well written story from the very beginning it had me entranced. The characters were well written and the author gave just enough back story to make the story interesting but not so much to take it over. Can not wait for the sequel!

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...
