Chapter 21: Secrets Revealed
Shock looked at Mobius's puzzled eyes.
"You almost had me completely fooled Mobius. I always thought you were my most loyal servant. That is..until a few days ago. This phrase gave you away"
"Up until that moment I didn't even mention that the TSO were attacking us. So how could you know? I knew because I had my own spies among the TSO but how did you know? The answer is simple Mobius: YOU WERE THE TRAITOR"
Mobius couldn't move, much more speak. He slowly turned around. He gathered his remaining power and shouted in high voice:
"YUGI PLEASE WIN THIS WAR! AVENGE MY DEATH"
Yugi saw Mobius collapsing and tried to run towards him. Jack hold him by the hand. "What are you doing?"
"Let me go Jack. He is my friend..."Several Years Ago...
???: "What? This is all you've got? You'll die in a second in a real combat if that's all your strength"
A blue suited figure got up from the ground and grabbed his fallen sword. "You sure live up to your expectations, Yugi."
"Well you have to prove me the same Mobius"
Mobius smiled and charged at Yugi...
"NO! I WON'T ALLOW YOU TO GO! IT'S TOO DANGEROUS!"
"But Yugi, this Shock guy trying to gather all the monarchs and if you want to defeat him then I can be the perfect bait. I mean I am a monarch after all"
"It's true but we can beat him even if you stay here. I know your master is dead but he was my friend and I swore to him I would protect you. I am actually thinking of forming my own army. You could be a great member of my army, you have proven to be a very strong fighter."
"I know but still I think It would be better If I went. I mean think about it. You'll have info on him from the inside."
"We have two new members in our army. Their names are Steff and Vem. They claim to know Shock in person and have proven very strong duelists. Vem, Steff welcome to the TSO"
Vem: "An honour to be here sir"
Yugi: "What do you mean he knows?"
Mobius: "He knows there is a traitor between his ranks. And you know what that means..."
Yugi: "...we have a traitor among our ranks as well"PRESENT...
"Yugi...Yugi...Yugi snap out of it"
Yugi suddenly opened his eyes and show Jack holding his right shoulder. "What happened?"
Jack: "You suddenly passed out. You said something about that guy being your friend"
Yugi: "Oh no! MOBIUSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS"
Jack looked at Yusei puzzled. Then suddenly Yugi got serious. "I do not have time to explain. You two stay here and stall Shock. I'll go to the place where the traitor is". Jack and Yusei nodded and activated their cards. "Good luck Yugi"
Yusei: "LEND ME YOUR POWER! TURBO WARRIOR"
Jack: "TURN THEM TO PIECES! VICE DRAGON"
The two creatures appeared before them ready for battle. Shock nodded and Leon took a step forward.
Leon: "I am afraid I cannot let you through here. My master insists that you should turn around and leave right now"
Totally ignoring him the creatures dashed by him charging at Shock. Leon shook his head and moving quickly as the wind appeared right in front of Shock. He took 2 white gloves out of his pocket and wore them. "Time for things to get dirty..."Meanwhile at the back gate...
Keith: "Leader of The Exiled Ones you say? He must be damn strong."
Pegasus: "Indeed he is. Be careful"
Keith: "Well then let's see if he can cope with this. SEND THEM FLYING! METALZOA!!!!"
Zoa's wound closed and heavy pieces of armour appeared around his body parts. The creature looked ferocius. "KILL THEM BOY"
Metalzoa started running towards Caius. Upon reaching close to him he delivered a ferocius punch at Caius's right side. Caius slowly raised his second finger and just like that stopped Zoa's punch.
Then with a snap of his left hand's finger Zoa turned into thousand pieces, his blood flying around the air. Keith shouted from pain and Kaiba saw his red bar reaching at the middle. Impossible he thought. Is he a monster?
Caius: "Now that you realised you are but lowly worms against us would you mind retreating as far away from here as possible?"
Kaiba: "Are you an idiot? Peg you take care of the red guy. Keith take the Kuraz guy and I ll take care of him"
Peg and Keith nodded without second thought.
Peg: "Time to get serious I think"
Keith: "Tsk, guess there's no choice"
Both of them drew a card and activated it!
Pegasus: "From the pits of hell rise and show us your power... RELINQUISHED!"
Keith: " Shoot them down to death, BARREL DRAGON"
The man named Thestalos clapped his hands. "Very good. I sense some strong monsters over here. And I thought this would be boring"
Kaiba and Caius were staring at each other. Around them the batle was growing imense.
"Aren't you going to attack?" asked Caius
"I am thinking of the proper way to do it. And since you are giving me time I can think of an even better strategy.
"I really hope you ain't just words. Cause then I'd be mad"
Kaiba smiled and drew a card. A giant hole appeared behind Caius
"Let's see how you like my Dark Hole"
Suddenly a tramendous force came from inside the hole and nearby objects, such as trees, were sucked in it. Caius seemed to be pulled in as well but after murmuring some words the hole vanished.
Caius: "You'll have to try better than that. My turn"
He snatched his finger and suddenly dark smoke appeared in front of him. When the smoke cleared a dark dressed rider, riding a black horse was standing in front of him.
Caius: "Doomcaliber, please take care of him for me."
Doomcaliber: "Yes master"
Kaiba: "In that case.. MYSTIC HORSEMAN COME FORTH"
A weird creature appeared in front of Kaiba. It's body was half animal and half human, with the upper half being the human one. In his left hand he was holding a battle axe. The two riders clashed with each other both delivering strong hits, but none of them seemed to have an edge. Meanwhile Relinquished sent a dark sphere of energy straight at Thestalos only to be repelled by one of the monarch's fireballs. Barrel Dragon kept shooting at Kuraz but he was evading the shots with ease. Doomcaliber and Mystic Horseman were fighting at a same level, with Doomcaliber having a slight edge, since he managed to deliver a vital stab in the horseman's right side. By activating a card Kaiba healed the horseman and now doomcaliber was the one being pushed behind. With another snatch of Caius's fingers two more dark knights appeared next to the first one and fast as a lighting surrounded and delivered several hits at Mystic Horseman. Barrel Dragon rushed to his side but Kuraz found the opportunity and slashed through the dragon's armor. The dragon slowly fell down and Kaiba saw Keith falling down as well. Relinquished retreated near Peg and Mystic Horseman stumbled backwars as well.
"Come on this is way too easy" complained Thestalos
Keith: "Damt I am sorry guys, they completely outsmarted me"
Keith's bars were almost empty. "At this rate I'll really die" he said.
"Stop talking nonsense. I am the creator of every single creature over here. You thought that even for a second they could defeat me? You are wrong. Kaiba let's do this"
Kaiba/Pegaus: "GO! POLYMERIZATION"
Their two monsters vanished in a hazard of various colours and in their place stood two new ones
Pegasus: "The true battle begins now"Meanwhile at the Rear gate....
"They are coming"
Witch King nodded in agreement to what Panos said.
"Looks like there are four of them"
Witch King: "Indeed Panos. ONLY 4 of them"
Granmarg: "They are not 4. They are only two"
Panos: "I can clearly see 4 figures."
Granmarg turned and looked at Panos. "They are only 2"
Moments later four figures stopped before them. One of them spoke. He was tall with black spiky hair and was wearing a blue cape. "So you are our welcoming party. Mind sharing your names?"
"The Exiled Number 8 Granmarg"
"Kauko" said Panos
"I do not feel I should reveal you my name. At least not before you reveal yours"
Another man, shorter than the first one with short brown hair jumped ahead and spoke" Yuki Judai, nice to meet you. My stubborn friend behind me is Chazz Prinston. And those two are..."
He stopped talking and saw a stash coming through his chest. He turned around and saw that one of the men behind them was holding Chazz by the neck.
The two figures behind them, the one white haired and the other one blonde, had a smile on their faces upon saying:
