Sightless Music Chapter 10Chapter 10: Nightmares and Daydreams
An eerie silence plagued the Motou household. No sound could be heard anywhere in the confines of the witch's hour. Anywhere except Yugi's room. The stepsibling's giggles couldn't breach the barrier that protected them from the rest of the house. 'It was the best night of our lives!' both reminisce that night and any other. For now, however; they were content with their laughter.
"I can't believe Ryou chased you into the pool! Haha! You almost got beaten up by a girl!" Yugi laughed hysterically.
"It's not funny!"
"You're right! It's not funny," Yugi claimed with pretended seriousness. "It's hilarious!" In a fit of uncharacteristic rage, Ryou chased the younger Motou around the backyard and into the pool. This resulted in a soaking Jaden and a clearly satisfied keyboard player. Needless to say, the night had gone well especially since none of the band members suspected Yugi's disability.
"But I did notice you and Yami hold
Sightless Music Chapter 9Chapter 9~ A Light of New Hope
Silenced emanated throughout the room, no one moved; instead they waited. They waited for the silent girl to cheer with delight or jump excitedly around the room. To their disappointment, nothing happened. No laughter, no clapping- not even a smile. Only fear gripped the young girl. Amethyst eyes widened in apprehension, making her grip tighten around Serenity's hand. As Yami's smile began to waver, Serenity squealed, breaking the silence that threatened to expose the buried.
"OMG! Does that mean she won?! Congrats Yugi!"
Shoving Jaden into a mountain of papers, Serenity snatched the lyrics from Yami's hand. After a few seconds of pretending to read, she proceeded to glomp Yugi overwhelmingly, covering the scared girl's face. Tristan, catching on to Serenity's act, bear-hugged both girls. "We knew you could do it Yug!"
"Th- thank you so much! I'm glad you liked my song." Yugi breathed; relieved her two best friends saved her from reveali
Sightless Music Chapter 8Chapter Eight: Yami, meet Yugi!
Yugi resisted the urge to run as Serenity quickly grabbed a hold of her hand once again and began to lead her inside the apartment-like fourth story of the Kaiba Mansion. The six walked down a small hallway that was decorated in various posters of the band itself while the walls were a pure white and the carpet blood red.
"Hey, Joey, is it them?" called a voice at the end of the hall making Yugi jump slightly at the suddenness of the noise.
Joey grinned as she grabbed Serenity's other hand and dragged her toward the voice a little faster, in turn making Yugi stumble slightly as she tried to keep up. "Yeah, and I gotta say the birthday girl is pretty cute!"
Yugi flushed as red as the carpet at the blonde's comment. Did the entire band know it was her birthday? The six of them quickly walked into a large sitting room that was literally covered in paper. There were letters covering just about every surface, even the large grand piano that sat in the far cor
Sightless Music Chapter 7Chapter Seven: Millennium!
"HELLO, DOMINO CITY!" he yelled as the screams grew louder. Yami smiled as he heard shuffling behind him, meaning the rest of his band was ready to go. "How are you all doing tonight?" he said into the mic which was responded with various calls of 'I love you!' and 'Marry me!' and other such cries. The crimson eyed man chuckled, "Thanks for blowing out my eardrums!"
The crowd laughed at the comment as the rest of the lights came on, on stage that had shut off after the last act. Standing next to their various instruments was the rest of the members of Millennium. Bakura was holding a pitch black electric guitar dressed in nothing but ripped black jeans and a long black trench coat with a few silver chains here and there. Ryou was dressed in a simple pair of denim shorts and a black tank top with a few bracelets to add to the look and was standing behind a keyboard waiting to play. Marik was sitting behind the drum set clad in nothing but a pair of leather pan
Sightless Music Chapter 6Chapter Six: Birthday Plans
(Friday, June 4:AKA Yugi's Birthday)
Yugi's jaw dropped to the floor, "YOU DID WHAT FOR MY BIRTHDAY?"
Tristan smirked at his friend's surprise, "We got you five tickets to Millennium's concert tonight. Me and Serenity are going, Jii-Chan will be coming as adult supervision, and Jaden's coming because he mostly paid for the tickets, and the last one is for you, seeing as it's your birthday."
Yugi continued to blindly stare at them through her sunglasses, "B-but you really didn't need to go that far! Just a CD would have worked."
Serenity smiled but shook her head, "No. You deserve to have some fun. Besides, I got us back-stage passes."
Now it was Tristan's turn to be shocked, "WHAT? When did you get those?"
Serenity smirked and held up her two fingers in a victory sign, "My sister's in the band."
The two teens' jaws hit the floor right along with several other classmates. "You're sister is what?" asked Tristan as he stared at his friend in disbelief.
Sightless Music Chapter 5Chapter Five: Me and My Band.
The smell of smoke plus the screeching sound of the fire alarm woke the annoyed teen early Sunday morning. 'Damn! Can't I get a minute's peace?' Yami thought angrily as he sat up. He was the last one in the bedroom, which didn't come as a surprise. Yami had stayed up late, looking through the lyrics that he and the band were getting by the thousand, or at least, that's how it felt. With a loud groan, the crimson eyed teen pulled himself from the warm bed and toward the shower. About twenty minutes later, Yami emerged, dressed in nothing but a crisp white towel, his tri-colored hair still sending water to drip down his back. The teen quickly dried himself as the fire alarm finally shut off, obviously, whatever fire his fellow band members had created was out and now there was yelling coming from the direction of the kitchen. With a sigh, Yami quickly dressed himself in a pair of gray sweat pants and a black T-shirt with florescent green writing that read, "
Sightless Music Chapter 4Chapter Four: Relationships.
Yugi awoke to someone shaking her, "Yugi. Yugi, wake up!"
"What is it, Jaden?" she mumbled as she sat up, the events of yesterday still plaguing her mind.
Jaden's face became bright red, "I-I was wondering i-if I could talk to you now." he said almost sheepishly.
Yugi smiled, hiding the pain throbbing in her chest as she swung her legs over the side of the bed and gestured for him to sit down. When the boy had made himself comfortable, she turned to him, "So, what did you want to talk about?"
"U-Um... I was wondering... what a girl would like?" Jaden mumbled, blushing more than ever.
Yugi looked at him, confused, "What do you mean?"
Jaden shrugged and looked at the floor, "You know... What would you get f-for the g-girl you l-like?"
Yugi smiled, "AWWW! You like some..." Jaden quickly placed his hands over his sister's mouth, blushing redder than a tomato.
"Yes, I like someone." he hissed, "I just need some advice... You know?"
Yugi quickly nodded, "I get yo
Sightless Music Chapter 3Chapter Three: Songs and Tears of Betrayal.
Not much later, lunch came around. Tristan, Yugi, and Serenity walked down the school halls toward the cafeteria, chatting about the contest as well as what had happened that morning.
"Are you sure you're OK, Yugi?" asked Tristan fourth time since the bell had rung.
"Yes! Tristan, I'm fine! Now can we please get something to eat?" said Yugi as her stomach let out another growl.
The brunette head up his hands in mock surrender, "OK, OK, but eat fast, there's somewhere I wanna go before next period." and with that, the three of them walked over to the overly crowded room.
After five minutes of record-breaking food eating, the three friends made their way across the school.
"Tristan, where are we?" asked Yugi asked as they walked through the many halls of the building.
"Almost there." called Tristan as they rounded one more corner and he shoved an unused classroom's door open."OK, we're here."
All Here For A ReasonI turned onto a shady, well-manicured driveway that, for all intents and purposes, looked harmless enough. Maple trees lined both sides of the street, and a parade of Canadian geese marched across the road to a wide duck pond with a flamboyant fountain. There were blooming crepe myrtles and rose-of-sharons, and as I grew closer to my destination, neatly trimmed gardens with neatly trimmed bushes.
I stopped to let the geese pass. They looked at me; one hissed. I honked my horn and moved around them.
At the end of the road sat a collection of grayish buildings and a number of signs directing me to the appropriate parking lot. "Welcome to Ten Creeks Hospital," said one of them. "Please enjoy your stay." I parked in the visitor's lot. Surely I wouldn't be staying.
I was shaking when I got out of my car. I had spent the morning getting high. One foot in front of the other, flip-flop noises, hot sidewalk. Mulberry and magnolia trees, freshly shaved grass. A bench and pan for smokers. A set o
