The Danger Rises


Chapter 1

The Danger Rises

The past six months had been a huge change. People were finally accepting each other despite the different ways of living. The group of Signers and their friends were hanging around and adjusting back into a somewhat normal life after defeating the Dark Signers. Era didn't go back to her world and wasn't planning it.

She and Yusei were becoming closer and Akiza was happy for them. She liked how her otherworldly friend had someone she loved and how one of her first friends had the same in his life. Era had started learning how to turbo duel and Yusei was surprised how easily she was picking it up. She already had a license to drive a duel runner. She just needed a dueling license at that point.

Though no one else knew it, Era knew what was coming and knew it was coming soon. Right now, Yusei and Era were riding on one of the many newly built highways. They were heading to the Infinity Tower that marked that the cities had finally joined.

"Hey, Era, you seem a bit worried. Is something wrong?" Yusei asked.

"Uh, just something new is coming our way soon," she answered.

"Good or bad?" Yusei asked.

"Bad," Era answered. She hadn't said a lot about the future but explained a bit about the past. She was willing to tell them about Jaden Yuki and Yugi Moto's time.

"What's coming our way?" Yusei asked concerned.

"You honestly don't want to know. Remember back when we first battled the Dark Signers? How I said that the Earthbound Immortals were one of the hardest cards you'll face?" Era asked. Yusei nodded. "Well, you're going to face one of the starters soon. But they'll get harder as time goes on," Era said vaguely.

"How strong are they?" Yusei asked.

"Stronger than you think. I'm not sure which you had more difficult time to defeat, Earthbound Immortals or these new ones," she answered.

"Well, I'll be ready and I'm sure the others will be ready too," Yusei assured her.

"And I'll be ready to help too. Don't think you'll get rid of me in this fight," she said. Yusei laughed.

"Wouldn't dream of it?" he responded.

"Come on. Let's head back to the garage," Era said. Yusei nodded and they went back to Yusei's place.

Era watched as Yusei, Jack, and Crow worked on their engine. Crow was in his Blackbird Delivery outfit, Yusei had his jacket off, and Jack was in his usual riding gear on the new duel runner.

"Hey Jack, how about a race?" Crow challenged.

"Like I would lose to you, Crow," Jack retorted and picked up the speed.

"Jack, not to fast or it'll overload!" Yusei called.

"What?!" he yelled over the noise.

"Jack, dial it down!" Era yelled.

He continued to accelerate much to Era's annoyance. In turn, a small explosion occurred. Era heard a few people gasp.

"You know, Jack," Era said between coughs. "When you can't hear someone over a noise and you can drop the volume, you drop it. You don't make it louder."

Zora, their landlord, suddenly opened the door and yelled at the boys who were bickering.

"Sorry, Zora. We'll be more careful," Yusei said.

"Yeah," Era said.

"Oh, you two are so kind and considerate," she said caringly. "Unlike your two friends," she growled. "Now just be more careful."

"We will. Sorry again," Era said.

Zora nodded and left shooing away the crowd that had formed.

"Oh you're so much like the son and daughter I wish I had," Crow mocked.

"Come on guys. She's not that bad," Era said.

"After all, she's letting us stay here for free. But I'm not sure how long that'll last with you two," Yusei added.

"It'll happen sooner or later. So you two better act a lot better. Or it may happen sooner rather than later," Era said.

"Okay, we got it. Act better to keep the place," Crow said.

Era looked at her watch. "Well, I have to head back to Martha's. See ya," she called as she went up to ramp.

Just as she was about to exit, Trudge arrived. "Hey Trudge. Nice to see you again." Era greeted.

"First off, what're you doing?" Trudge asked looking at the duel runner remains.

"We were trying to make a better duel runner," Yusei said.

"Yeah, we're planning on entering the World Racing Grand Prix," Crow said.

The other guys looked Mina and Trudge. "What's happened, Trudge?" Yusei asked.

"Have you guys heard of 'The Ghost'?" Trudge asked.

"We've heard rumors that the guy forces people into duels," Crow said.

"With the new tournament, the new rules involve using the Speed World 2 field spell instead of the standard Speed World. I want you, Jack, and Yusei to try to capture the Ghost," Trudge said.

Crow runs up and hurries them out. "No. We have too much work to do to get ready for the tournament. Sorry Trudge but we can't," Crow said. Once Mina and Trudge were out, he dead bolted the door shut.

"You know, Crow. You'll regret doing that. He'll need your help in the long run," Era said.

"What're talking about? Trudge can handle this guy," Crow retorted.

Era shook his head. "The Ghost is the first attack of what is coming. His cards are an extension of what he duels for," Era said.

"And what's that?" Jack asked.

"Wait, does this have to do with the danger you knew was coming earlier?" Yusei asked.

Era nodded. "The monster he uses is powerful. Its ability can say the very thing that its creator wants to do when you truly think about it," she said vaguely again.

"And I'll ask again, what's the thing it says?" Jack asked.

"The extermination of Synchro Monsters. Now I have to go or Martha will give me a long scold. See ya," Era called and with that she left.

"Did she say 'extermination of Synchro Monsters'?" Crow asked.

"Is that even possible?" Jack asked.

"Well, she knows pretty much everything about what happens here. I wouldn't be surprised if she knew the coming turn of events. I'm more worried about this ability she was talking about. If it wants to exterminate duel monsters, what ability does it have to state what it wants?" Yusei wondered.
