Live to Fight Another Day

"Yusei…" he heard a voice.

"Wait, was that…?" Yusei couldn't finish.

"Yes, Yusei. I am the Crimson Dragon. She is not lost yet. She still has her mark. I can save her but I must ask this first," the Crimson Dragon asked. She wanted to test him and his honesty.

"What do you need to ask? I'll answer anything to save Era," Yusei responded.

"Do you truly love Era? Think carefully before you answer," Crimson Dragon said. To her she saw the truth but she needed him to say it again with fully honesty and no uncertainty.

'I can't even imagine life without her. I need her here. I love her,' Yusei thought. "I do. I love her," Yusei answered.

"That is good to hear. I will save her for she loves you and you both need each other," the red dragon stated.

Era's body began to give a red and white fluctuating shine. Her breath became more apparent and steady as her body regained its health. Yusei gave a sigh with relief. She was going to be okay. And that meant everything to him.

They found themselves over Satellite and Jack said, "I guess we're here to finish the bridge."

"Yeah," Yusei agreed.

When they landed, they immediately went to Crow's hideout where Yusei set the sleeping Era down until she woke up.

As soon as they were sure she was safe and fine, they began their work to finishing the bridge and connecting the people.

Eleven in the Morning

Era's eyes opened slowly. She looked at her surroundings. "This is Crow's hideout…" she muttered.

"Good to see you're awake," Yusei said walking in.

She looked at him. "So the King of the Netherworld was…" she began and stopped when Yusei nodded with a grin. She sat up and swung her legs to the side.

"You know the only reason you're alive is because of the Crimson Dragon," Yusei said. Era looked at him confused. "After you released every bit of your power, I grabbed you and your pulse was so faint it might as well been non-existent. She asked me if I truly loved you and she would save you after I answered."

"What… did you answer?" Era asked.

"What I've said most of this adventure, 'I love you'," Yusei responded.

Era couldn't help the deep red blush that covered her cheeks. She looked at him. "I love…" she was stopped as Yusei pressed his lips against hers.

When they pulled a part, there was no shock on their faces. No confusion. It was all happiness and warmth.

After that day, they continued to build the bridge. And after that was done, Yusei, Jack, and Crow found an apartment they could use thanks to the land lord allowing them. Yusei was worried Era would be left on the streets but she told them how she was staying at Martha's to help out.

The Crimson Dragon had her brother put Jack (Era's brother) with a new family in another city. A family they both knew was safe. Era was happy that her brother was in good hands now and away from her parents.

But this was only the beginning of their adventure together. Era knew that better than most. And she was ready to face it with Yusei and her otherworldly friends.

This may be the end for one tale but this is only JUST the beginning…

Everyone, I can't thank you enough for the support. Now it is undecided if there will be a sequel. I am so happy to all of you who helped this story get so far and supported me with this story. This may be the ending of this story, but a new one may find its way into the fanfiction world. Once again thank you for the support, thank you AvatarofBahamut for the permission to use some parts, and I hope to write to you again.

Farewell!
