Blues was secretly relieved, even if his face was as solid as a rock.They didn't just laugh in his face and/or stormed out like he half expected them to. Even if many of them knew of Duel Spirits, the Wicked Gods were something much harder to swallow. Even he didn't believe it when he first heard of them. However... it seemed the cards choose some... odd people. Like this 'Lee' character for example. He went on to a full Ryu 'heart of battle' thing and wanted to duel someone.
Phantom Falcon placed a hand on Lee's shoulder. "I admire your... spirit, but now is not the time. We're going to divide into teams immediately, and go searching for clues, the people behind this, and the captives right away. Maybe next time," Blues nodded in response and stood up, hands behind his back as he walked out from behind the desk.
"So, the teams are as follows. Team One will consist of Phantom Falcon, Akira, Lyall and Daichi. The four of you are investigating this city, Domino," Falcon nodded in response and walked towards the door.
"We're leaving immediately. Meet me in the lobby," He stated.
"Team two will consist of Kyouji, Yugo, Furiko, and Yuria. You'll be investigating Turbo," Kyouji nodded with his grin plastered across his face.
"Alright, my team, meet me outside," Kyouji said, looking ready to go. "We're going to leave right away as well! We can't let Falcon or Knight beat us to any information!"
"It's not a race," Dread Knight commented, shaking his head.
"Team three will be Dread Knight, Aika, Tycho, and Helena. Your assignment is Cradle," Blues turned to the dark duelist, who nodded. "Go to the back, there will be a ride waiting for you there," Dread Knight headed out, motioning for the others to follow him. "And finally, Team four will be myself, Lee, Meiro, and Eizar," Blues stated before headed to the door. "You three are going to want to follow me. We're going to Taccon... in style,"
In the lobby, Phantom Falcon first went over to Kuria. "Meiro's heading out with the boss. You'll want to follow them if you want to help them out,"
He then turned to wait for the others to arrive. When they did, he wasted no time. He handed them small devices that looked similar to Bluetooth ear pieces. "Put them on, leave them on. Domino is a big city, so we'll use these to keep in contact,"
He looked out the front doors, thinking to himself. "We can either split up or stay together, the choice is up to you,"
Yugo chuckled as he followed behind Kyouji, hands behind his head. "Hey, we haven't dueled in awhile. If we got time after this all blows over, then we gotta go a round,"
Kyouji chuckled as he shook his head."I'm pretty sure the 'Duel Princess' called first dibs, yeah?"
He commented as the two climbed on their D-Wheels, slipping on their helmets. "True, true,"
Yugo pulled out a spare helmet, Kyouji mimicking it. "Pick who you want to ride with,"
Kyouji said as he tossed Yuria the helmet, Yugo throwing his at Furiko. When the girls climbed on to a D-Wheel, the two took off, headed for out of the city. Yugo was a much more aggressive driver, trying to pass people and stay ahead of Kyouji. Kyouji, although he also went fast, managed to look sane as he drove, yet was able to keep up with Yugo.
With the wind blowing across their faces, the four headed off on the thirty minute drive to Turbo City.
Dread Knight groaned and slapped a hand over his face as he saw the ride that was provided for him. He was expecting something a little more stealthy than a frickin' limousine!!
This would not fly!"How is this stealthy?"
He managed to calmly ask the driver, who just grinned in response.
"Remember, you're going to Cradle. With a ride like this, you're hiding in plain sight," The driver explained. "Oh, and is a... 'Tycho Bosko'? Mr. Kaiba has put your D-Wheel in the garage. They're tuning it up and upgrading it. It'll be here when you get back!" With a sigh of defeat, Dread Knight opened the door. "Well, get in it then,"
He told the others. The seats were arranged around the center, where there was a mini-fridge, stocked with food and drinks, and a TV. Dread Knight made it his mission to slide over to the farthest and darkest corner. When the others piled in, the driver drove off, the group headed to Cradle in luxury.
Blues lead his team to the elevator, where he pressed the roof button. As everyone piled in and the doors closed, Blues turned to the team. "Just so you know ahead of time, I was not the one who made this. So no judging,
" When the elevator reached the roof, it sounded off a soft ding
and opened its door, revealing... a jet that was in the shape of a Blue Eyes White Dragon."We're getting to Taccon by this,"
Blues stated as he climbed into the cockpit, taking the controls. There were five empty seats left, just perfect for the team and then one. When they all got settled in, Blues smirked to himself and started to take off. The jet hovered straight up until it was about fifty feet above the tower, and it took off with a mighty sonic boom, headed for Taccon.
The small boat landed on the island, the group piling out and looking around. From what they could tell, the island was full of ruins, overgrown with trees and other plant life.
"Man, hard to believe that Academia fell to such disrepair, huh?" One of the males commented.
"Well, it's what happens when the dimensional barrier weakens, and Duel Monsters can come to the real world from here...," The girl muttered.
"Speaking of which," Wade stated before running off into the distance.
"Hey, wai---!" The girl cried, but it was far too late. "Dammit... that idiot will get himself killed,"
"That's the whole reason why he's here," the third person spoke up. "Now let's get going...," The group headed deep into the ruins, passing by many old buildings. The whole area was... eerily quiet, like time wasn't moving as long they were on the island.
"Looks like this will be a piece of cake," The male stated. Just as he said that though, a cry of a large creature echoed from the sky. Looking up, the small group could see what looked like a dragon made completely of bones swooping down at them.
"You just had to say something, didn't you?!" the girl screeched.
"We'll be fine," The third person said. "We brought him after all," He pointed up at the trees. In one was Wade, who leapt out and grabbed the dragon by the neck, using his weight to make it crash into the ground.
"RKO out of nowhere!" Wade called out as they crashed into the dirt. The trio saw their chance, running off for their goal. Unknown to them however, someone was waiting outside the ruin, sitting on a rock with his head down.
"Seems I'll have to do something," The tall man muttered to himself. "I promise you Jaden... the three will never be released again...,"
