Viewtiful Rekk: ---------------------------------------------------------
Viewtiful Rekk: Victor chuckles. "So....prepare your cards, Henry Kaito."
BreakneckChao: "Gngh..." Henry pulled his recently modified deck from his vest pocket.
OnlineHost
: Viewtiful Rekk rolled 2 6-sided dice: 5 5
OnlineHost: BreakneckChao rolled 2 6-sided dice: 2 5

Viewtiful Rekk: "Well, well, it looks as though I'm first." Victor said with another chuckle as he snatched five cards off of his deck.
BreakneckChao: Henry drew his five cards. "Okay, then."
BreakneckChao
: 8000/8000
Viewtiful Rekk
: "I'll summon Terror Fang LV2 in attack mode!"
BreakneckChao: "Terror Fang?"
Viewtiful Rekk
: A young bat appears, and lets out a screech. (1000/800)
Viewtiful Rekk: A blue glowing string suddenly appears from the monster...and runs back into Victor's body.
BreakneckChao: "...What the..."
BreakneckChao
: Henry watched as the string extended.
BreakneckChao
: "...What's with that blue line?"
BreakneckChao
: *with
Viewtiful Rekk
: Victor smirked. "All in due time."
Viewtiful Rekk: "For the moment, I activate Terror Fang's effect!"
Viewtiful Rekk: The bat rushes over to Henry, and bites into his neck. Hard.
BreakneckChao: "...Aagh!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Once per turn, I can deal you damage equal to half of Terror Fang's attack points."
BreakneckChao: Henry clutched his neck, wincing in pain.
Viewtiful Rekk
: (8000/7500)
BreakneckChao: Henry rubbed the site of te bite, feeling the actual impressions of the beast's fangs.
Viewtiful Rekk
: "And then...that total gets added to Terror Fang's attack points....but since it can't attack on the first turn, it matters little."
Viewtiful Rekk: "I'll set one reverse card and end my turn."
BreakneckChao: "...Okay, then! I'll draw!"
BreakneckChao
: Henry pulled the card... and then smirked.
BreakneckChao
: "Fine then... You want to play with level monsters?"
BreakneckChao
: "How about you meet mine!"
BreakneckChao
: "I summon Photon Angel LV 3, in attack mode!"
BreakneckChao
: The little angel appeared, and a similar blue string shot back from the monster into Henry.
BreakneckChao
: "...Whoa..."
Viewtiful Rekk
: Victor smirks interestedly. "Photon Angel...it's been a while since I've seen one."
BreakneckChao: (1600/600)
BreakneckChao
: "Next, I'll lay a reverse."
BreakneckChao
: "And next, I'll have my angel attack your stupid bat!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: A smirk. "Trap card, activate!"
BreakneckChao: "...Wha?"
Viewtiful Rekk
: Photon Angel shatters into a thousand pieces. "Sakuretsu Armor!"
BreakneckChao: Henry's expression changed.
BreakneckChao
: Crap...
BreakneckChao
: "Alright then... go."
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Now....experience the true nature of my Shadow Game, Henry Kaito!" Victor exclaims as he points at Henry.
BreakneckChao: "...What?!"
BreakneckChao
: As the angel was offed, Henry felt like his insides were exploding.
BreakneckChao
: "Aah!!!"
BreakneckChao
: Henry keeled over in pain.
BreakneckChao
: "But... I didn't take any damage!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "You didn't...but your angel did."
Viewtiful Rekk: Victor fingers the string that goes into his bat for a moment. "These strings...they're like a line between your monster and yourself."
BreakneckChao: "Uugh..." Henry managed to stand up.
BreakneckChao
: "...So that's how your little game works..."
Viewtiful Rekk
: "As long as this Shadow Game is active, we'll feel all pain our monsters feel."
BreakneckChao: Henry nodded.
BreakneckChao
: "Alright then..."
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Now then. It's my turn, you said?"
BreakneckChao: "Yeah."
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Draw." He slides a card off his deck.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Now, since Terror Fang LV2 activated its effect last turn...I can sacrifice it for my Terror Fang LV4!"
BreakneckChao: Oh, great...
Viewtiful Rekk
: The small bat disappears, replaced by a moderately larger one. (1700/1500)
Viewtiful Rekk: "And since he was summoned by Terror Fang LV2's effect....he gains the same boost LV2 had!" (2200/1500)
BreakneckChao: "...So then..."
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Now then...." Victor looks at his hand.... "Ah right! Terror Fang LV4's effect activates!"
Viewtiful Rekk: Again, the bat shoots forward, and sinks its teeth into Henry's neck. "You'll take damage equal to half of its attack! 1100 points!"
BreakneckChao: "Aaah... Crap!" Henry swatted at the bat.
BreakneckChao
: Wincing, he placed his hand on his neck again.
BreakneckChao
: (-1100)
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Heheh....are you getting a bit woozy, Henry Kaito?"
BreakneckChao: Admittedly... he was.
BreakneckChao
: Henry wasn't about to let on that easily, though.
BreakneckChao
: "...Not a bit, buddy..."
BreakneckChao
: "Are you done yet?"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Oh....yes. I suppose so. Just after one more reverse card."
BreakneckChao: "Okay, then. Draw!
BreakneckChao
: "Alright! I play Magical Mallet!
BreakneckChao
: Henry slipped 4 cards back into his deck, and drew 4 more.
BreakneckChao: "Okay, then. I'll lay a defender, and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Since I activated Terror Fang LV4's effect last turn...." A grin. Henry should know what's coming.
BreakneckChao: "Not again..."
Viewtiful Rekk: The bat disappears. "Come out, Terror Fang LV6!" An adult bat comes out and screeches loudly. (2300/1800)
BreakneckChao: "Crap!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Then, I'll play Mystical Space Typhoon on your reverse card!"
BreakneckChao: ...frick!
Viewtiful Rekk
: The reversed card on Victor's field activates and shoots out at Henry's face down card.
BreakneckChao: Mirror Force blows to high heaven.
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Then I'll set one defender..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "And have Terror Fang attack your defender!"
BreakneckChao: Miracle Dove exploded, and Henry felt the same sensation he had when Photon was destroyed.
BreakneckChao
: "Aaaaauugh..."
BreakneckChao
: Henry buckled over
Viewtiful Rekk
: Victor laughs loudly. "Haha! For someone as experienced as you, you're certainly inexperienced with Shadow Games!"
Viewtiful Rekk: "Tell me, how did you beat Bruce? Pure luck?" A pause. "...Ah yes, it was!"
BreakneckChao: "Shut up."
BreakneckChao
: Henry managed to pull himself up.
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Ooh, did I touch a nerve?"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Take your turn, Henry Kaito. It will probably be your last."
BreakneckChao: "Fine... I draw."
BreakneckChao
: "First, I'm gonna take out that frikkin' bat before it bites me again!"
BreakneckChao
: "Lightning Vortex!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Oh? You're struggling."
Viewtiful Rekk: "How amusing."
BreakneckChao: *henry discarded one of his cards*
Viewtiful Rekk
: Terror Fang is wiped out by the lightning....and Vector grits his teeth in pain as the string is torn out of his body.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Hh....heh....not bad..."
BreakneckChao: "Next, I'll play another one of my level monsters..."
BreakneckChao
: "Silent Magician Lvl 4!"
BreakneckChao
: "And I'll also activate Premature Burial!"
BreakneckChao
: Henry winced as the life points were deducted.
BreakneckChao
: (-800)
BreakneckChao
: "Photon Angel LV 3!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "So...you like LV monsters too, don't you?"
BreakneckChao: S (1000/1000), P(1600/600)
BreakneckChao
: "We'll see how much you like them in a second."
Viewtiful Rekk
: The miniature magician appears...and casts a couple scared glances around at the shadows. "..H-Henry-kun...what's going on...?" She mumbles.
BreakneckChao: Henry looked down.
BreakneckChao
: His face was nowhere near as calm or happy as it usually was, though he mustered a grin for the little magician.
BreakneckChao
: "We're... in a shadow game."
BreakneckChao
: Henry looked up. "Photon, take that defender out!"
BreakneckChao
: The little angel blipped, and flew at the defender, blasting a beam of light at it.
Viewtiful Rekk
: She flinches visibly, but says nothing else, wringing her hands on her stuff uneasily.
Viewtiful Rekk: Dark Mimic LV1 is briefly revealed, before it explodes in a shower of particles.
BreakneckChao: Henry looked down. "Don't worry, everything will be okay..."
BreakneckChao
: The multiple bite wounds on Henry's neck might suggest otherwise to the kid magician.
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Grrk!" Victor goes rigid in pain this time, but doesn't fall over. "Hh...thanks to Dark Mimic's effect, I draw once..." He snaps a card off my deck.
BreakneckChao: "Draw a card?"
BreakneckChao
: Henry smirked, as Silent gained a counter, and Photon absorbed the monster's energy.
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Heh...quite beneficial for you, isn't it...?"
BreakneckChao: S (1500/1000), P (1800/600)
BreakneckChao
: "Looks like it..."
BreakneckChao
: "Silent Magician, attack him directly!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: The young magician hesitates momentarily...but leaps up, and shoots a small blast at Victor, sending him flying to the ground.
Viewtiful Rekk: Victor gets back up, holding a hand over his chest. "Are you quite done...?"
BreakneckChao: "Go ahead and take your turn."
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Draw!"
BreakneckChao
: S (2000/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk
: Victor smirks once more. "I summon Allure Queen LV3 in attack mode!"
Viewtiful Rekk: A young woman appears, a small flame dancing on one hand and a staff in the other. (500/500)
Viewtiful Rekk: "Now then...I'll activate my Allure Queen's effect!" The girl smirks and spins her staff a couple times....before Photon Angel floats right over to Victor's side of the field.
BreakneckChao: "...What?!"
BreakneckChao: "How long do you keep him for?"
Viewtiful Rekk: A smirk. "Don't worry. I can't use him for anything."
Viewtiful Rekk: "He just becomes equipped to Allure Queen."
Viewtiful Rekk: "I end my turn."
BreakneckChao: "... Alright then. I draw."
BreakneckChao
: "Okay, then. One reverse."
BreakneckChao: "Now, Silent, attack that Allure Queen!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: The magician cluthces her staff and swings it at the Queen...who just giggles as Photon Angel takes the shot instead.
BreakneckChao: Henry doubles over once again, shocked at this new development.
BreakneckChao
: "What?! CRAP!"
BreakneckChao: "My... Angel..."
Viewtiful Rekk
: Victor has a pained expression for a moment as his life points drop. "Heh...did I forget to mention....the equipped monster to Allure Queen acts as a shield."
Viewtiful Rekk: (5000)
BreakneckChao: "Shoot..." Henry shook his head.
BreakneckChao
: "Fine then... go."
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Heheh....Draw!"
BreakneckChao
: S (2500/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk
: "...Shift Allure Queen to defense. Set one defender."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Go.
BreakneckChao: "Draw!"
BreakneckChao
: "Another reverse..."
BreakneckChao
: "And I'll attack your Queen with Silent!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: The Queen is overwhelmed, and Victor's legs buckle for a second. "Heh..heh....fine."
BreakneckChao: Henry noticed his vision was blurring slightly. He rubbed the wounds on his neck.
BreakneckChao
: Yeesh... those things got me good...
BreakneckChao
: "Go on.."
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk: "Hf....Winged Kuriboh, in defense mode!"
Viewtiful Rekk: A winged Kuriboh appears and lets out a 'Kuri Kuri!' (300/200)
Viewtiful Rekk: "One reverse card...end turn."
BreakneckChao: "Draw!"
BreakneckChao
: Silent Magician begins to shift field.
Viewtiful Rekk
: "....?"
BreakneckChao: "Now, time for Silent Magician to level up!"
BreakneckChao
: "Okay, then..."
BreakneckChao
: "I'll play the field spell, Luminous Spark!"
BreakneckChao
: S (3500/600)
Viewtiful Rekk
: Winged Kuriboh 'Kuri!'s again. (800/0)
BreakneckChao: "Okay, Silent! Take out that Winged Kuriboh!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "....." Victor grins. "Reverse card, open."
Viewtiful Rekk: "TRANSCENDANT WINGS!"
BreakneckChao: Henry's jaw drops.
BreakneckChao
: "You've... got to be kidding me..."
Viewtiful Rekk
: He holds up two cards. "So I'll just discard Dark Lucius LV4, and Heavy Storm..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Now I tribute Winged Kuriboh..." The small puffball glows, and is shrouded in a massive pair of angelic wings. "To summon WINGED KURIBOH LV10!" (300/200)
Viewtiful Rekk: "Now I sacrifice Winged Kuriboh LV10...to destroy your Silent Magician!"
BreakneckChao: "Oh... crap..."
Viewtiful Rekk
: Winged Kuriboh holds its wings as a shield, sending Silent LV4's blast right back at it, destroying the small magician as she lets out a cry of pain.
BreakneckChao: Silent is destroyed, and Henry's stomach churns again.
Viewtiful Rekk
: "And then...you take damage equal to her attack points!"
BreakneckChao: "...Guh...Errrgh!!"
BreakneckChao
: Henry's back arched, and his vision blurred.
BreakneckChao
: It felt almost as if his very bones were breaking.
BreakneckChao
: The boy fell to the ground, face down.
BreakneckChao
: "My... My body...:
Viewtiful Rekk
: Vector doesn't look so great himself, several beads of sweat now streaming down his face...but he manages a chuckle.
Viewtiful Rekk: "How does it feel, Henry Kaito?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "It's far worse than with Bruce, wasn't it?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "That fool had no idea what true pain is...."
BreakneckChao: Henry barely retuned himself to his knees.
BreakneckChao
: The boy coughed hard, placing his hand over his mouth.
BreakneckChao
: As he removed his hand, he was startled to find that it was covered in blood.
BreakneckChao
: "...Holy..."
BreakneckChao
: Henry struggled to his feet.
BreakneckChao
: (2100)
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Heh...heh...if it's any consolation..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "I don't personally have anything against you. You're just in the way of my plans."
BreakneckChao: "I'll try to keep that in mind... But this is far from over!"
BreakneckChao
: "I'll remove Silent and Miracle Dove from play to special summon...."
Viewtiful Rekk
: "...!" Victor's eyes snap open.
BreakneckChao: "Soul of Purity and Light!"
BreakneckChao
: The card flies up behind Henry, twirling around him and hugging him around the neck, just as in the card's picture.
Viewtiful Rekk
: "....." Victor stares for a moment.
Viewtiful Rekk: "....Heh...I suppose that figures..."
BreakneckChao: (2500/1400)
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Akito did say you love all sorts of light-attribute monsters."
BreakneckChao: Henry quirked an eyebrow.
BreakneckChao
: "Akito talks about me?"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Well....not all too much."
Viewtiful Rekk: "You just came up in a conversation about...this particular card."
BreakneckChao: "...About this card... What did he say?"
BreakneckChao
: The Soul perked up, glancing at Victor.
Viewtiful Rekk
: "He said that since you loved light-types, you probably had this card in your deck." He said, and smirked. "It was in response to how I told him...that it used to be my Duel Spirit."
BreakneckChao: "...What?"
BreakneckChao: "The Soul of Purity and Light was your duel spirit?"
BreakneckChao: "Why did you get rid of it, then?"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Get rid of it? Don't insult me."
Viewtiful Rekk: "She was murdered. I had no say in the matter."
BreakneckChao: Henry's eyes widened.
BreakneckChao
: "Duel spirits can be... murdered?"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "It's not particularly easy, but yes. Yes they can."
Viewtiful Rekk: "At the very least, she was beaten so badly, she'll never be able to cross back over to this world again."
BreakneckChao: Henry's muscles shook from a combination of the damage done to them, and the thought of the same thing happening to his monster.
BreakneckChao
: "...The Soul and I have been together since I was very little."
Viewtiful Rekk
: Victor's face actually turns back to a smirk. "Oh, don't worry Henry."
Viewtiful Rekk: "I only want you dead. I'll leave your spirits alone."
BreakneckChao: "...Good."
BreakneckChao
: The Soul clung tightly to Henry, shaking her head as if to say "No!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "...Heh..."
BreakneckChao: "Soul... the only thing we can do is give it our best. Whatever happens to me..."
BreakneckChao
: "Well..."
BreakneckChao
: "Just don't worry about me..."
BreakneckChao
: Henry's eyes narrowed.
BreakneckChao
: "Let's get back to this game!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Well then. End your turn."
BreakneckChao: "I'm not ending just yet..."
BreakneckChao
: Henry smirked.
BreakneckChao: "...I activate Call of the Haunted!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "...?"
BreakneckChao: Once again, Photon Angel emerges onto the field.
BreakneckChao
: "But this time..."
BreakneckChao
: "He gains 500 attack points from Luminous Spark!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Heh...fine."
BreakneckChao: (2100/200)
BreakneckChao
: "Now... take your turn."
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk: "...I pass."
BreakneckChao: "All right then, Victor! My turn!"
BreakneckChao
: "Draw!"
BreakneckChao
: Photon Angel begins to ungelate and shift.
BreakneckChao
: "Photon Angel levels up!"
BreakneckChao
: (2500/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk
: "...Heh.
BreakneckChao: "And Level 5 is also affected by my Luminous Spark!"
BreakneckChao
: (3000/600)
BreakneckChao
: "Photon! Attack that defender!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: Sangan appears briefly, and is vaporized.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Kh...!" Victor holds a hand over his chest momentarily. "Heh...Sangan's effect activates!"
BreakneckChao: Photon absorbs the little monster's energy.
BreakneckChao
: (3300/600)
BreakneckChao
: "Now, Soul! Attack Victor directly!"
BreakneckChao
: The Soul relinquished it's grip on Henry, rising up, then shooting at Victor.
Viewtiful Rekk
: Victor is knocked down and goes sliding across the ground. (2500)
Viewtiful Rekk: "Kh..." He slows gets back up. "...I never thought you'd be this much of a problem..."
Viewtiful Rekk: He shoots an almost deranged look at Henry. "You've proven far stronger than I anticipated!"
BreakneckChao: Henry's knees shake, simply trying to hold him up.
BreakneckChao
: "I guess... I should take that as a compliment.."
BreakneckChao
: Henry coughed again, spitting up yet another spurt of blood onto his hand.
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Heh...are you done, or shall we just stand here in pain a bit longer?"
BreakneckChao: "Go ahead..."
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk: "I summon Tricky Magician LV4 in attack mode!"
BreakneckChao: "Gngh... Another level monster I've never heard of..."
Viewtiful Rekk
: A young magician, holding a small blue knife in its hands appears, and shoots a dirty look at Henry. (1000/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk: "Then, I activate the spell card Level Up!"
BreakneckChao: Henry's eyes widen. "Oh crap..."
Viewtiful Rekk
: "I sacrifice Tricky Magician...to summon Tricky Magician LV8!"
Viewtiful Rekk: The young magician appears, and is replaced with an older magician shrouded entirely in a black cloak, two blue knives in his hands. (3500/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk: "Now then, I don't need that blasted angel getting stronger...!"
Viewtiful Rekk: "Tricky Magician, attack it!"
Viewtiful Rekk: Tricky Magician spins his knives on his fingers, and dissapears, reappearing back over the Photon Angel, ready to strike.
BreakneckChao: "Ha! You're forgetting the effect of my Soul of Purity and Light!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Heh...decreasing my monster's attack points, right?"
BreakneckChao: "Right!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: Tricky Magician stays put in midair for a second...before it runs its blades through Photon Angel three times, wiping it out.
Viewtiful Rekk: "As long as Tricky Magician LV8 is the only monster on my field, I can choose which of your mosnter, trap, and magic effects can affect it!"
BreakneckChao: Henry felt three blades go through his body, before he felt the familiar feeling of a monster being destroyed.
BreakneckChao
: The boy gasped for air, falling onto the ground.
BreakneckChao
: "Ah... Aaaaah...."
BreakneckChao
: "...H...How?!"
BreakneckChao
: Henry looked at his body...
BreakneckChao
: Three stab wounds.
BreakneckChao
: Three real stab wounds.
Viewtiful Rekk
: A grin. "My Shadow Games are quite lifelike, aren't they?!"
BreakneckChao: Henry could barely talk at this point.
BreakneckChao
: He simply lay on the ground, propped up by one elbow, gasping for air.
BreakneckChao
: The blood was dripping from his mouth at this point.
BreakneckChao
: "....Oooh..."
BreakneckChao
: Henry placed a hand on his knee, attempting to push himself to his feet.
BreakneckChao
: "...Are... you... done?"
Viewtiful Rekk
: A smirk. "Yes. Take your turn so my magician can continue to kill you."
BreakneckChao: Henry drew.
BreakneckChao
: Finally, Henry was able to barely push himself onto two feet.
BreakneckChao
: "...Stray...Lambs..."
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Heh...futile..."
BreakneckChao: The words were becoming more and more difficult fro Henry to mutter out.
Viewtiful Rekk
: "No matter how many monsters you summon...my magician will mow each one down effortlessly..."
BreakneckChao: "...Go."
Viewtiful Rekk
: Victor doesn't look so hot either, but he at least is more strongly on his own two feet.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Magician! Strike the Soul of Purity and Light!"
BreakneckChao: "!"
BreakneckChao
: With the pain he had been in, Henry had forgotten to switch his monster into defense mode.
Viewtiful Rekk
: The magician disappears again, and appears behind the Soul of Purity and Light, and runs her through three times with his blades.
BreakneckChao: He could only cringe at the sight of his Soul being destroyed, and three new stab wounds appearing on his body.
BreakneckChao: Henry had no choice but to drop to the floor once again.
BreakneckChao: At best, he could only prop his upper body up with his elbows.
Viewtiful Rekk: "It's your turn, Henry."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Your last turn."
BreakneckChao: Henry barely managed to draw a card.
BreakneckChao
: A weak smile crawled onto the boy's face.
BreakneckChao
: "...You're... right."
BreakneckChao: The two lambs on the field began to fade away, and were replaced by Henry's old faithful:
BreakneckChao
: The Revolver Dragon
Viewtiful Rekk: "Revolver Dragon in an all-light deck?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "How....hypocritical."
Viewtiful Rekk: "....! Unless....no!"
BreakneckChao: Henry pulled three coins from his jacket pocket.
OnlineHost: BreakneckChao rolled 3 2-sided dice: 1 2 1
BreakneckChao: The Revolver Dragon reared back, and fired at the magician on the field, obliterating it.
Viewtiful Rekk: The Magician appears to be hit head-on by the massive shell...but in truth, blocks it with one of his knives.
Viewtiful Rekk: He then rams the other into it, shattering the projectile into a thousand pieces.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Did you forget....when Tricky Magician LV8 is my only monster, I choose which of your effects can touch him!"
BreakneckChao: Henry's eyes widen....
BreakneckChao
: He pulls out a second card.
BreakneckChao
: The breathed heavily and slowly.
BreakneckChao
: "Breath..."
BreakneckChao
: "Of..."
BreakneckChao: "Life..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "...." Victor takes a step back.
Viewtiful Rekk: "...No..."
BreakneckChao: A barely visible stream of air entered into the dragon's nostrils.
BreakneckChao
: Slowly but surely, pieces of metal began to drop from the dragon, one by one hitting the floor.
BreakneckChao
: Finally, six brilliant angelic wings burst from the back of the dragon, fluctuating beautiful colors.
BreakneckChao
: "...Seraphim."
Viewtiful Rekk
: Victor watches the process, looking completely unnerved for the first time in the entire duel.
BreakneckChao: Henry smiles widely.
BreakneckChao
: (3300/2400)
BreakneckChao
: The boy grabs one of the coins off the ground, and tosses it into the air.
Viewtiful Rekk: Victor grits his teeth...and walks over to Henry, before grabbing him by the collar and hoisting him up until he's at an equal level.
Viewtiful Rekk: "How...how!?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "How did you gain those cards, Henry Kaito?! TELL ME!"
Viewtiful Rekk: "Was it from that bastard Ichirou Komatsu?! Huh!?" His calm in-control demeanor is completely gone now.
BreakneckChao: Henry smirked. "One.. of... them."
Viewtiful Rekk
: Victor's eye twitches momentarily, and he flings Henry to the ground.
Viewtiful Rekk: "You...you worthless...." He looks about ready to strike out at Henry right then....but stops.
BreakneckChao: Henry gasps as he hits the ground, rolling backwards.
Viewtiful Rekk
: "...I'm going to kill you when that coin lands on tails. And it will be painful." He says in an eerily calm voice as he looks at the coin, waiting for it to drop.
BreakneckChao: Henry looked at the man.
BreakneckChao
: "Already... has"
BreakneckChao
: Henry laughed weakly, pointing behind Victor.
Viewtiful Rekk
: ".....?" Victor raised an eyebrow. "What are you talking about...." He turns and looks.....
OnlineHost: BreakneckChao rolled 1 2-sided die: 1
Viewtiful Rekk: "...!" He stares at the coin, his mouth agape.
Viewtiful Rekk: "No....no...!"
BreakneckChao: Seraphim spread it's wings. A powerful aura emanated from the beats.
BreakneckChao
: *beast.
BreakneckChao
: (4300/2400)
BreakneckChao
: "Now... attack!"
Viewtiful Rekk
: No...! Victor looks back at his magician. If Tricky Magician LV8 is destroyed, I take damage equal to its attack points!
BreakneckChao: The dragon lifted off the ground, a ball of light converging in its mouth.
BreakneckChao
: The dragon fired the ball across the field, and upon contact with te magician, the ball erupted into a massive explosion.
Viewtiful Rekk
: The magician attempts to block, but is engulfed by the blast from the dragon's attack, and vaporized into nothing.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Gg....AAAARGH!" Victor screams out as his monster is destroyed and his points drop. (1800)
Viewtiful Rekk: His body then begins smoking as he looks back at Henry. "Hh...heh heh heh...Henry Kaito..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "This is the first true duel I've lost in a while....you should savor your victory..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "But..." He grins, in spite of the immense pain going through his body. "...Look at yourself. My Shadow Game has done far too much damage to you..."
BreakneckChao: Henry simply continued to smile weakly.
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Even if I lost...." He begins fading away, along with the shadows. "....This was still your last duel..."
BreakneckChao: "Heh...heh...heh..."
BreakneckChao
: Henry began to laugh weakly.
BreakneckChao: Tears began to stream down the boy's face, but the smile remained.
BreakneckChao
: "...Happy..."
BreakneckChao
: "...Birthday..."
BreakneckChao
: "...Henry..."
Viewtiful Rekk
: And with that....Victor is gone, as are all traces of his Shadow Game. And Henry is back on the Osiris Red roof.
BreakneckChao: Slowly, everything faded to black, and the boy drifted out of consciousness.
Viewtiful Rekk
: And behind Henry, the Silent Magician appears, clutching one of her arms and wincing, but looking far better for the wear than the two duelists a moment ago were.
Viewtiful Rekk: She coughs briefly. "H-Henry-kun...I'm sorry I was destroyed like that...I..." She gets a good look at the duelist, and her eyes widen signifigantly. "....Henry...kun...?" She asks, and floats closer to him.
Viewtiful Rekk: "...Henry-kun! Wake up!" She attempts to touch him, but her hand just goes through. She looks for some kind of response.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Henry-kun......! Henry-kun!" She continues to cry out, into the night.
Viewtiful Rekk: (And...that's all for me.


Viewtiful Rekk: Realizing that Henry wasn't conscious, the Silent Magician gulped down a small breath and slowly inched closer towards her duelist, and held a rapidly shaking hand out in front of his mouth, (more)
Viewtiful Rekk: as a test to see if he was still drawing breath, since she couldn't...y'know, touch him.
BreakneckChao
: Slow, heavy breathes were indeed beiing issued by the boys. It was obvious that there was great difficulty in the breaths being taken.
Viewtiful Rekk
: As she felt the duelist's breathes on her hand, tears began coming to the magician's eyes. He was alive. At least now she knew that much. "Henry-kun..." she muttered out, and shook her head briefly (more)
Viewtiful Rekk: Help....I have to go find help...! She told herself, and with that, she dived through the roof of the Red dorm, no clue whose room she was going in too.
Polk Kitsune
: Meso, after being pelted, chased, and a blasted marathon around the island, was now resting on his bed, upside down, in a mess of bedsheets, snoring lightly. He was busted...
Viewtiful Rekk: Until a young magician shot in, screaming to high heaven. "Hey! Henry-kun! H-Henry-kun's in trouble!" She shouted out, floating as close to his face as possible. She'd probably be shaking him too if she could.
Polk Kitsune: "GYYAAAH!" Cue the multiple crashing sounds as the boy suddenly found himself head over heels on the floor, wincing. "Owowowowow~"
Polk Kitsune: With a flop, he sat back up. "Gh... What was that about?" He eyed the little magician, blinking as he rubbed his sore head.
Viewtiful Rekk: She looked into Meso's eyes, tears still welling up in hers. "H-Henry-kun! H-he's in trouble!" She managed to get out, before pointing up at the ceiling. "Up there!"
Polk Kitsune: "Up... There?" He looked up, his eyes half open, tryign to shake the morning fog out of his head. "Whaaaa?"
Polk Kitsune: Shaking his head, he stumbled over to his clothes, and started to dress up. "What the hell happened? What is he doing up there?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "H-he was in a Shadow Game...and he was injured badly...!" Actually, she had gotten hurt kinda badly in that duel too, but that wasn't the point right now.
Polk Kitsune: "Him? In a shadow game?" He pulled his jacket on. "Is he insane?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "I-I don't know! Just...please, help him!"
Polk Kitsune: "Alright, alright! Show me where!" He gave a sigh, and jumped out the window, catching onto the top frame, and flipped up over onto the roof. "Come on!"
Viewtiful Rekk: Floating up after him, she pointed at where the unconscious duelist was. "There! He's right there!"
Polk Kitsune: Leaning over Henry, he checked the body for the usual marks. Cuts, bruises, missing limbs, missing soul. "... He won, I do hope?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "I...I think so...the other person isn't here..."
Polk Kitsune
: "Good, good... Then he should be alright. I think." He looked to the magician. "We better get him to the nurse at least."
Viewtiful Rekk: The magician did nothing but nod, grateful beyond everything that he was okay. "O-okay...."
Polk Kitsune
: He grabbed the boy, and lifted him up on his shoulders. "Probably needs to sleep it all off... Hopefully, that's all there is to it."

- - -
Polk Kitsune: "Damn... Handle... Couldn't hurt for some to lose a little wei-HA!" And with that, the nurse's office door openned, with Meso bursting in with an unconscious Henry on his back.
Polk Kitsune: "Gh... I'm gonna be sore tomorrow, that's for sure."
kwikkidus: A small, rather soft tube of ointment is immediately flung in Meso's direction. "The Kaito brat. What is he doing here, and why is he unconscious?"
Viewtiful Rekk: The Silent Magician suddenly interjected, shooting in front of Meso. "H-Henry-kun was in a Shadow Game...! Please, help him!"
Polk Kitsune: PAF! Right on the nose. "Urgh... Thanks." His eyes twitched as the tube fell to the floor, leaving a red trace on his face.
Polk Kitsune: "Shadow game, it seems. Found him this way."
kwikkidus: "...Very well, put him on a bed. Do you know how powerful the shadow mage was?" She seems... more serious than usual.
Polk Kitsune: He raised an eyebrow. The Hellnurse? Concerned? Nah... Must be just late. He shook his head. "No ideas, I wasn't present." He looked to the magician. "Who was it?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "I-I dunno..." She mumbled. "Henry-kun just summoned me while we were dueling...then I was destroyed later on..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "H-he seemed really nervous about it though..."
kwikkidus: "...I did not ask you who it was. I asked you how powerful they were. What was the shadow game's circumstance?The penalties? The final penalty game? You should note these things."
Polk Kitsune: He gave a sigh, and placed Henry on a bed. "Well, it seemed to get even Henry's dense head nervous about it."
Polk Kitsune: "So it must've been very serious."
kwikkidus: "It is not easy to treat an illness if you know nothing about it. You realize this, correct?"
Polk Kitsune: "Yeah, but under these circumstances, I doubt any clues were left behind. I didn't find any scars or anything."
Polk Kitsune: "Unless it's purely mental, I don't know."
Polk Kitsune: He looks at the magician once more. "She woke me up when it was all over.
Polk Kitsune: "
kwikkidus: "Mental torture, perhaps. Possibly related to the destruction of monsters..." A hum. "It tends to be, does it not?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "I...." She racked her mind, for any hint of something she could tell.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Whenever something was destroyed...it looked like it hurt them both a lot..."
kwikkidus: She hums, nodding as she raised Henry's feet over his head. "Monsters linked to pain for themselves. I see... a classic shadow game."
Polk Kitsune: He gave a nod. "Hai... Mind games can be the most dangerous ones though."
Polk Kitsune: "A classic duel-style shadow game anyhow."
kwikkidus: "Why are you waisting your breath to tell me this? I am fully aware of the effects of mind games." She shakes her head, taking Henry's blood pressure.
Polk Kitsune: He examined her every motions carefully. "Just making sure. Always better be careful."
Polk Kitsune: "I didn't bring him to you if I didn't know you had the skills though."
kwikkidus: "Hmm... and what would you know of my skills regarding ancient magics better left forgotten?" She spoke rather offhandedly, instead focused largely on the blood pressure cuff.
Polk Kitsune: He crossed his arms, pondering, watching. "Only that I know you're far from a regular nurse, that you have some rather... perticular knowledge about the facts of magic."
Polk Kitsune: "And what's supposed to be forgotten, you're unearthing."
kwikkidus: "I already had this knowledge. Presumably,so did you, Meso. Therefore, nothing has been unearthed." She sighs,shaking her head. "I have good news. He still has a soul."
Polk Kitsune: He gave a relaxed sigh. "Really good news." He raised an eyebrow. "And I do... Your goals though, you never presented though. But I knew if someone could treat this..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "W-will he be okay....?" He mumbled, looking down at Henry as the nurse examined him.
kwikkidus: "...Hmph. Be glad this case was interesting. I want to know who exactly caused this game. And if I simply allow Kaito to die... he will not tell me, now, will he?"
Polk Kitsune: "... Yeah..." He leaned against the wall, yawning. "I'm still sticking around till he wakes up though. No offense."
kwikkidus: "Understandable." She continues her work,humming as she places a finger to her chin. "I wonder. How dense do you say Kaito's head is?"
Polk Kitsune: "... The rumors say denser than a mountain, but even that's putting it easy." He shook his head.
kwikkidus: "Just checking." She smacks Henry upside the head. HARD.
Viewtiful Rekk: "!!" The young magician actually shoots between the nurse and Henry. "D-don't hurt him!"
kwikkidus: Zaniah conveniently forgets to notice the magician. Hurrah for incorporeality!
Polk Kitsune: "In this case... maybe a sledgehammer wouldn't do much." He shook his head. "Don you have better medicine to deal with this?"
kwikkidus: "Not to wake them up from being unconscious..." She hums, turning around and grabbing a rubber reflex-testing mallet. "Let us see if this works any better."
BreakneckChao: "...Gngh..."
Polk Kitsune
: "..." Sweatdrop. "Can't you just wait for him to wake up or something?"
BreakneckChao: Henry's eyelids began to move slightly
kwikkidus
: She sighs, shaking her head. "He is awake. It worked."
BreakneckChao: Henry opened his eyes. "Wuh?"
kwikkidus
: "The shadow game. Who started it."
Viewtiful Rekk: "!! Henry-kun!" The magician exclaimed and spun around.
BreakneckChao: Henry shook his head, rubbing it.
BreakneckChao
: "...Some guy named Victor..."
kwikkidus
: "Did you get a last name, or was it simply 'Victor?'"

BreakneckChao: "...I think his last name was ...Rasputin? Yeah, I think that was it."
Polk Kitsune: Meso gave a sigh of relief.
BreakneckChao: 'That's all I know..."
kwikkidus
: "...Then describe the shadow game. What happened when monsters were destroyed. When you lost?" She's interrogating him, and being quite obvious about it.
Polk Kitsune
: "... Zaniah, take it easy! He's just waking up!"
BreakneckChao: Henry rubbed his head. "Ugh... I feel like I've been hit by a train.."
kwikkidus
: "...You metaphorically have."
Polk Kitsune: "Zaniah's hand. Close enough."
BreakneckChao: Henry turned to the two who brought him here.
BreakneckChao
: "Hey Silent. Hi Meso." Henry smiled a bit.
BreakneckChao
: "How... did I get here?"
Polk Kitsune
: Meso waved his hand. "Welcome back to reality."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Henry-kun...." Tears began welling up in the young magician's eyes once more.
Polk Kitsune: He pointed to the magician. "She found me, I found you unconscious... I think you can figure the rest out."
kwikkidus: "...Be wary of him." she says coolly, before wandering off into an adjacent room. She stops by the door. "Oh... And I have a report to file. Henry, I may or may not decide to persue punishment. Be glad I am in a good mood."
BreakneckChao: Henry nodded. "Yes ma'am."
BreakneckChao
: Henry saw the distress in the little magician's eyes.
kwikkidus
: "One more thing... which of you instigated the duel?"
Polk Kitsune: Meso gulped, as the nurse went off, and approached Henry. "Feeling better, I hope?"
BreakneckChao: "...He did. Totally. He literally yanked me out of my room and onto the roof with Alastor's gauntlet."
kwikkidus
: "...So he has the gauntlet now, as well..." She nods to him, then disappears into her office.
Polk Kitsune: "..." Blink blink. "... ooookaaayyy."
BreakneckChao: "Silent... I'm sorry about all that. "
Polk Kitsune
: "You're going to have to give a long-winded and fully described story about it all to the others soon, you know that, right?"
BreakneckChao: "And... thank you both a ton..." Henry nodded to Meso.
BreakneckChao
: "Yeah... I know."
BreakneckChao
: Henry raised up his shirt, looking at where the stab wounds had been...
BreakneckChao
: "They're all gone..."
Polk Kitsune
: "Yeah... Some shadow games are like that." He gave a sigh. "At least he didn't fuck with your mind."
BreakneckChao: He returned his shirt to where it was originally.
Viewtiful Rekk
: Suddenly, the magician gripped on to Henry's neck as tightly as possible (or at least tried, being, y'know, not solid) "Henry-kun....I-I was so worried...." She said and sniffled.
BreakneckChao: "...I'm so sorry, Silent. Look... I'm okay." Henry smiled.
BreakneckChao
: "...Are you hurt at all?"
Viewtiful Rekk
: "A..a...a little..." She muttered. "B-but...I...I think I'll be okay..."
BreakneckChao: Henry smiled big. "I'm glad..." henry laid back on the pillow.
BreakneckChao
: "...Dang... I'm so tired..."
BreakneckChao
: "It's like it sucked the energy right out of me..."
Polk Kitsune
: The boy gave a sigh. "Should I leave you two alone?" He yawned. "Ichirou gave me one hell of a mean run..."
BreakneckChao: "You're welcome to leave, buddy. I'm sorry you had to do this for me, and I thank you dearly for it."
Polk Kitsune
: He smiled, and gave a nod. "Hey, you'd have done the same for me, I'm sure of it. It's my pleasure."
Polk Kitsune: "Next time though, invite me to the party. Maybe I can be of better help."
BreakneckChao: Henry laughed. "I had no clue any of this was gonna happen. Total ambush, man."
Polk Kitsune
: "Hehehe. I know, I know." Shaking his head, he turned back, waving a hand. "You take care, buddy. Get well soon."
BreakneckChao: "Thanks Meso." Henry nodded, and laid back.
Viewtiful Rekk
: "Th-thank you..." The magician said after Meso, still pseudo-clinging to Henry.
BreakneckChao: "And thank you, Silent."
Polk Kitsune
: He gave a nod, and took a deep breath. That felt... good... really good. Shaking his head, he headed back, yawning. "I hope training doesn't start too soon..."
