Yu-Gi-Oh: P.O.D: Part 22Tacey, Xia and Tsuko leave the infirmary, a look of relief on Tacey and Xia. Tacey let out a sigh.
"I wish I knew what happened back there. Even the nurse didn't know what was going on..."
"However, she did say that Naruki's just exhausted, nothing serious at all. She was just confused by you saying that he just fell down." Tsuko added.
"What did you expect her to say?" Xia replied.
"Telling her that he was testing his 'abilities' would have been even worse..."
"I apologise, Xia-sama..." Tacey shook her head.
"At least he's resting. I better tell Yu before he freaks." As the two walked off, a young girl with long black hair, wearing a standard sailor high school uniform peers around the corner.
"Hmmmmm...no, it couldn't be that caped boy, he seems more like sister's lackey..." The girl then looked over at the room that the trio just walked out from. "...the person sister was talking about, she sounded as if she cared...I wonder..." The girl creeps into the room Kou is in, then looks ov
Yu-Gi-Oh: P.O.D: Part 21Later in class, Mister Emoulu is explaining gemini monsters.
"And so when removed from the field, even with a card such as past Image, a Gemini Monster will always be in it's normal form when it returns to the field-explication." Tacey couldn't concentrate, the only question that seemed to fill her head was why Kou was talking to a hologram earlier. Tacey looked over at Kou.
"What happened back there?" Tacey asked, barely above a whisper.
"I don't know...it was the same with Bright James and started with that Shinigami..." Kou replied, his mind on something else.
"Not that...you talking to that solid hologram..." Kou looked over at Tacey with a confused look.
"Huh?" Then Kou looked up with a smile.
"Oh right, Stygian Security is a duel spirit. That's all I can really say, 'cause that's all he told me."
"He's a what?" Tacey retorted, the last word coming out a bit too high to be a whisper.
"A duel spirit, the spirit of the monster that lives within the card I guess...it's strange 'cause
Yu-Gi-Oh: P.O.D: Part 20Meanwhile in the classroom for first year advanced, Tacey is sat at the front, exhausted. Suddenly a group of female white dorm students walked up to Tacey.
"Um, Tacey-san, can you tell us what Kou-kun's like?" Tacey closed the book with a loud slam.
"Can't I just study in peace?" Tacey replied, exasperated. The fact that she had to dodge so many reporters and paparazzi over the past few hours was taking a toll on her.
"Well you're like one of his close friends right? We just want to know if he's got a great personality to match his skills..."
"Look...I've only known him for ten days, tops. There's not a whole lot I could say." Tacey replied, trying to dodge the question.
"Then why were you hanging out with him alone at the cafe yesterday!?" One of the other female stuents suddenly asked. Tacey looked back at her duel disk.
"If you really want to know, then why don't we duel, then? If I win, you stop asking me questions." The girl readied her duel disk but then they were in
Yu-Gi-Oh: P.O.D: Part 19Xia looked back at her duel disk, feeling a bit overwhelmed. Kou looked a bit confused as he rubbed the back of his neck.
"Something wrong?" Xia let out a sigh.
"The way you faced James Bright...and how you were able to win the Dorms over... not to mention how you beat the Cyber style...I don't know if I could stand against you."
"Stop asking so many questions, damnit!" Came Yu's voice from the other end of the corridor.
"What in the...I'll go check it out you go back to what you were doing." Kou began to run off but then doubled back.
"Um, you still have the 'Mischief of the time Goddess' card..." Xia nodded.
"I'll keep it for now...if you don't mind..." Kou smiled.
"Okay, just promise me you won't use it 'kay?"
"I'm not his girlfriend!" Tacey shouted from the distance. Xia looked back at the card.
"I...alright." Kou gave her a thumbs upo.
"Okay, gotta go Mei-chan, wonder what that ruckus is all about-" Kou began to run off but the turned back at the end of the hallway.
Yu-Gi-Oh: P.O.D: Part 18Meanwhile, at the top floor of the Black dorm, an office like room. A girl with long green hair, green eyes, wearing a balck blazer, short balck skirt and knee-high boots looks out the window at the academia.
"Hmmmmmm, so that Naruki, Kou...he's apparently just about done with Pure White...it's only time 'till he comes for us Dahak." Dahak dropped his black hood, exposing a pale face, dark sunglasses, shoulder-length black hair kept straight by hair gel and an eerie smile.
"Another so-called savior. No matter. The Black Dorm will just have to repeat history again, and again." The girl sighed.
"You really have grown to love it here haven't you Dahak? Even though Yami-sama asks for daily reports and only has us here to monitor this academia for him...also this may sound wierd but, I saw our Shinigami a few days ago in this very academia."
"Really, now?" Dahak asked, mildly intrigued.
"This is interesting. Surely Yami-sama had his reasons for sending Shinigami here."
"That or Shinigami ca
Yu-Gi-Oh: P.O.D: Part 17"I was able to get a leak from one of the Pure Whites. Their top supporter, Harris? He's hiding out in the White dorm...in the cellar." Xia informed the group. Tacey scratched her head.
"Why there of all places?" Yu smirked.
"The rat's probably on his last defenses. I'm up for knocking the fat off that lard ball!" Kou began to walk off, before turning back to the others.
"C'mon guys, let's take one of the last steps to saving the academia." Tsuko nodded.
"This is the first time I've wanted to follow someone other than Xia-sama, but lead the way Naruki Kou." Tacey nodded before following.
"He's probably keeping his best guys close." Yu activated his disk.
"All the better reason to go all out. I really need to let some steam off." Etsuko just stayed quiet while following, looking at Kou with admiration in her eyes. Xia looked at her duel disk for a moment, before pulling out her deck and placing another.
Some time later, under the white dorm, all around the group were huge b
Yu-Gi-Oh: P.O.D: Part 16The next morning, Tacey is on her way to the cafe to grab a few drinks for the group seeing as how Kou's in the medical wing and has been all night. Tacey looks back at every corner, still nervous.
"Come on...snap out of it..."
"Hey Tacey!" Kou suddenly shouted over from the academia card shop.
"You're up pretty early." Kou commented as he walked over. Tacey turned towards Kou, startled.
"Kou! Oh...you scared me."
"Sorry 'bout that...oh almost forgot, I had nothing to do in the medic...thing, so I looked through my collection and..." Kou reached into his pocket and pulled out a few cards.
"Found some cards for everyone, hey if I'm not gonna use them why keep them when they can have a home in someone's deck?" Kou handed Tacey the cards as she read them out;
"Hanewata, Star Changer, Psi-Blocker and...Kuriboh?" Kou smiled.
"Just wanted to show you that not all fiends are scary and stuff, I've always had him in my deck...but it looks like you need him more than me." Tacey looked at the car
Yu-Gi-Oh: P.O.D: Part 15Eventually the two of them came up to a rather run down town.
"Um, Sensei what happened here?" Kou asked, confused as the cloaked man just stood there.
"...your first real test Kou-kun."
"Sweet!" Kou shouted back with excitement booming in his voice.
The two of them walked into a nearby store, the shelves were rather bare and dusty, the spider's cobwebs seemed to be in better condition than this place. The cloaked man rang the store bell.
"Hello? We'd just like a few supplies." A rather old woman wearing an old fashioned dress walked down the creaky stairs to the left of the register.
"Oh my, I'm terribly sorry I thought you were...ahem...wh-what would you like?" The old woman frantically stuttered as Kou gave her a confused frown.
"Who did you think we were?" The old woman looked down.
"J-just some...troublemakers..." Kou looked concerned.
"Trouble makers? You mean like thugs? We can take care of them right Sensei?" The cloaked man nodded, but the old woman shook her head.
