Yu-Gi-Oh GX: Eternity 8 Saga Chapter 11 - The Pride of Obelisk Blue! Alexis vs. Chazz
Chapter 11: The Pride of Obelisk Blue! Alexis vs. Chazz
“A duel is it?” Missy asked, curiosity on her face as she heard the latest news. “So whoever loses will have to leave Duel Academy forever?”
“Straight up!” Max nodded with a devilish grin, as they were both leaning against the lighthouse. “Yo girl and Princeton’s gonna set it off tonight!”
“Please, Alexis is not my girl!” She soured. “But I just loved how you just wrecked her life apart! Even her friends hate her now! If only I could’ve been there to rub it in her face!”
“It wasn’t too hard! All me an’ my crew had to do was make sure everything was in set before ‘Operation: Punk Out Princeton’ was in full effect. Which, by the way, mad props for lettin’ us use yo’ room!”
“If it was to help make Queenie’s life miserable, I’d do it again!” Missy proclaimed proudly. “Everyone thinks that she’s so great and so beautiful and so cool! Hmph, she didn’t look so high and mighty when she got revealed to be the liar we all knew she was. It was so brilliant: Have Alexis believe that she was a victim of a betrayal of the worse way, only for it to blow up in her face. Even those Slifer Snots are more popular than her now! I just love it!”
“What can I say? My boy knows how to pull off a perfect imitation. Sure I thought at times he was gonna trip and mess up, but none of them bustas noticed the difference! All them hosers felt for it: Hook, line, and sinker!” Max bragged as unknown to either of them, Syrus was hiding behind said lighthouse as he managed to overhear the Ra and Obelisk’s conversation.
‘So Max is responsible for this, and Missy too!’ He thought. He knew that it was suspicious that neither Max and his gang, or Missy was present during the challenge. Add to the fact that he could’ve sworn that Jaden noticed something from the trees nearby and it was all he needed to know that there was a hidden agenda.
“What do you expect from those losers anyway?” Missy mused, “What would’ve made it better was seeing the look on that waste of space Serene Storm’s face when her mentor wasn’t as great as she thought she was.” She laughed. “That would be something to see!”
“I’m sure you’ll get that girl! She ain’t nothin’! Now let’s just chill and kick it for a while!” Max said as he d***** an arm around her shoulder. “After all, it’s not everyday I can get to roll with Miss Duel Academy!”
“I can feel the title in my hands already!” Missy closed her hands as she brought them to her chest, as if she was hugging the title itself. “With Alexis out of the picture, I’m a shoe-in to win!”
“That’s unless Miss Thang actually beats Princeton’s has-been behind…” Max reminded, snapping the violet-haired girl out of her daydream.
“Oh…” She responded in a deadpan voice before giving Max a glare, going as far as to grab him by the loins of his sleeveless coat. “Let me tell you something, I will be Miss Duel Academy this year! And I don’t care how far and how low I’ll have to go to make sure of it! Got it?”
“Chill Baby Girl! I got this! It’s basically a sure thing!” The Ra Yellow duelist assured, moving her hands off the jacket!
“Well she’s not the, despite being more than overrated if you asked me, Queen of Obelisk Blue for nothing.” She reminded. As much as Missy hated… no, as much as she loathed admitting it, Alexis was one of the top duelists in not only Obelisk Blue, but the entire academy as well! Her Cyber Girl deck was no joke either. Only a few people managed to hold their own and even fewer people had actually beaten it. And hopefully Chazz will not only beat her but also humiliate her like the joke that she always was! “Chazz better be ready for tonight! I don’t feel like being upstaged by her at the pageant this year. Not again!”
Max snickered. “Who said Miss Thang was gonna show up in the first place?”
Syrus gasped from hearing this despicable plot. ‘Oh no… They’re going to try to get rid of Alexis! Maybe even prevent her from making it to the duel!’ He shook a bit. ‘I-I gotta warn Alexis!’
“So what’cha gonna do now, Baby Girl?”
“Well, I’m going to take a nice warm bath. Then find something nice to wear. After all, I need to wear something special for this event. It is Alexis’ last appearance in Duel Academy after all.”
“You go on and do that!” Max suggested with a playful smirk. Wondering just what kind of ‘special outfit’ she was talking about, hoping it was the kind he was thinking about. “I’ll just ruff up our ‘lil spy who think we don’ know he there!”
“Would you please? That dweeb thinks that he’s so cool like he’s some super spy or whatever. Besides, I still haven’t forgotten how he made a fool of me and ruined my dreams!” Missy added, all for the chance of seeing Syrus get the beating he deserved for ruining her chance to see Zane. How long has it been since the dweeb’s last beat-down anyway? Two? Three week ago?
Syrus gasped at hearing this! Did they know he was here the whole time? “Aw man…” He knew that he was found out. So what was the only thing he could do? As he backed up carefully, watching to see if either Max or Missy noticed, he soon broke off into a mad sprint in a desperate attempt to flee and to warn Alexis. He should’ve known… They all should’ve know that Max would be the medium of this, and that Missy was involved wasn’t much surprising either! Chazz and Alexis were both falsely accused and abused and something needed to be done! Case in point: The duel must be stopped!
As Syrus desperately dashed towards the Obelisk Blue Girls’ Dorm, maybe it was his hastiness that got the better of him, or it was because it was dark outside, because when he turned his head forward, he did not see the person he had just bumped into. As the small Ra was knocked back down, he blinked out of fear once he saw the person he bumped into.
“Well look what we have here, Bradley!” He heard Charlie’s smooth, yet conniving voice say as he blinked. As if his situation wasn’t worse already… “We have the last of the dweeb! A rare species indeed.”
“You just found yourselves on the wrong side of the tracks!” The bigger Ra added, cracking his knuckles.
“Aw man…” Syrus stammered. “P-please guys! Not today!”
“Sorry old chum, what the High Max wants? The High Max gets!” Charlie explained, flipping the long dark strand of his hair from his face. “Nothing personal!”
“Yeah right…” Syrus quickly got up as he tried to make a run for it. However, destiny would be proven to be working against him as he found himself even deeper into the frying pan.
“Just like old times, eh Truesdale?” Max gave a wicked grin as he cracked his neck.
“I know what you did to Alexis and Chazz!” He yelled. “You and Missy planned all of this! Setting Chazz up! Turning the tables on Alexis! Everything!”
“So what if we did? What you gon’ do ‘bout it? Nuthin’! You run up the wrong spot, Hoser!”
Syrus looked around! He was basically surrounded and had nowhere else to go! They were bigger, stronger, and more ruthless than he was and basically had no qualms about resorting to violence to get what they want “Please Max… Don’t-”
“Sorry twerp…” He said in a mock-caring voice as he, Braddock, and Charlie picked up Syrus.
“Wh-Where you taking me?” Syrus looked around as he then saw a familiar sight! “No…no that!”
“In ya go!” They place Syrus inside of the rubber trashcan head first as they then placed the lid on top. Fastening it shut. “He ain’t gon’ mess with us anymore! But we better make sure!”
Braddock smiled, knowing exactly what his leader had in mind as within one hard kick, the trashcan was knocked down as it began to roll until it rolled itself into the water.
“Hope that ‘lil busta knows how to swim!” He laughed as he watched the wastebasket float in the water. “We’ll give Lexi your condolences! C’mon y’all, we gotta dethroning of a queen to watch!” As the trio left, Syrus, trapped in the trashcan, tried to break out, but it couldn’t have been helped. His air supply was limited and to make things worse, there was a small crack that was causing a bit of water to come in. If something wasn’t done soon, he’d either suffocate or drown, whichever came first! If he should fall, hopefully Alexis would still remain at Duel Academy!
Ra Yellow Boys’ Dorm
“How many of the lot actually believe Chazz’ side of the story?” Bastion asked as he typed away on the CPU.
“Sadly, half the school!” Jasmine unfortunately informed as she watched the monitor display the recently added poll to the Duel Academy web page: “Alexis vs. Chazz: Who will win!” “It’s like fifty-fifty, including her so-called ‘friends.’”
Bastion sighed, “I could understand Jaden’s reluctance as the boy’s so naïve that it could end up being his undoing someday. But Hassleberry, for some insane reason, believes that Chazz is telling the truth. And we all know how Blair feels about Alexis. Other than Serene, no one else believes Alexis’ side of the story.
“I refuse to believe for one second that Chazz Princeton did not force himself onto Alexis!” Bastion clearly stated. “And we all know how much of a liar Chazz can be if he’s really desperate. I believe that I have a ruined deck that could bank on that statement.”
“Well of course I’m standing by my friend!” Jasmine informed. “At first Mindy and I thought that Alexis was lying after seeing the video. But now that I think about it, Chazz could’ve had some actress play as Alexis and filmed the entire thing. He does have enough resources to do so!” In truth, Jasmine always had a disliking for the spiky-black-haired duelist. Maybe it was because of the way he first treated others during his first year. Maybe it was because of how he just left all because he was going to be demoted to Ra Yellow. Or maybe it was because he just came off as a guy who’d paid for to get anything and everything he wanted no matter what. The newly built room in Slifer Red last year was an example. In actuality it was more that she didn’t trust Chazz. Jasmine always had that feeling that one day when they were all in danger, Chazz would most likely sell all of them out for a better deal.
“And what does Mindy think?”
Jasmine scoffed, “Who knows! Mindy has been rather flaky as of late, especially about Alexis! It’s almost like she wants Alexis to lose or something! So far in the group, it’s three for Alexis, three for Chazz, with one undecided.”
“Make that two undecided.” Bastion corrected. “Syrus still hasn’t voiced his opinions on the so-called ‘new evidence.’”
“Where is Syrus anyway? Didn’t he go back with Jaden and the others?”
“I’m not exactly sure, and I’ve already made it clear that I would not be stepping within a radius of the Slifer Dorm as long as he was there.”
“Honestly Bastion, if you didn’t tackle him I would’ve done so myself.”
“Again I must apologize for my actions.” Bastion nodded his head towards Jasmine. “I’m usually above all of those barbarisms, but when I heard Alexis said that Chazz…you know… I just lost control of myself.”
“Hey, it’s no problem. People usually do OOC things when they’re in love.”
The Ra’s eyes went wide within the mention. “Y-you mean you know?”
“I do now!” She gave him a small wink as Bastion realized that he, unknowingly, just admitted his crush on Alexis. “Besides, how can you keep things like that to yourself? Someone like me’ll eventually just reveal them anyway! Besides, I overheard you, Jaden, and Syrus talking about dueling for Alexis’ cell phone number two years ago.”
“Oh right…” Bastion sighed. “I made Jaden and Syrus vow to never tell anyone and I’d loan them my Duelist Kingdom DVD…after Alexis was done with it of course…”
“That’s right! I remember Lex telling me about it.” Jasmine then asked, “You still wouldn’t have it on you by any chance, would you?”
“Actually I’ve loaned it to Jeffery next door. But I’ll keep you informed when the DVD is returned.” Bastion informed as Jasmine just nodded.
“Alright then. Just don’t lend it out to anyone else!” Jasmine said in an ordering tone. She was interested in seeing the very rare Duelist Kingdom DVD and wanted it as soon as possible.
Slifer Red Boys’ Dorm
“Look Chazz…” Jaden tried to explain to the spiky-haired duelist, but so far it had been in vain. “I understand how you’re feeling about this but-”
“Don’t you tell me that you know how I feel Jaden!” He snapped pointing towards the boy, “You don’t know what it’s like! You don’t know how it felt to have the girl you loved! The girl you’d die for just rip your heart out and stomp on it flat under the elevated heel of her blue boot!”
“I know it’s heartbreaking, but still aren’t you just going a bit too fast about this! I mean let’s make sure we all have our facts…”
“I have all the facts I need!” Chazz declared. “Face it, Slacker! Alexis was nothing but a lying, conniving, jealous witch who I thought was a friend! She wants to be the best, well she better prove it, otherwise she can just hit the bricks. Speaking of bricks, as some one who has plenty of them placed in front of her, take a look at Mindy:” Chazz pointed to the raven-haired Slifer who, once again, was fixing the buttons on her blazer (When were they going to give her another blazer that actually fit?). She was Alexis’ friend since day one! She’s in her third year and look at her now: She’s been reduced to a Slifer Slacker, just like you!”
“You’re making it sound like it’s a bad thing!”
“Unlike you, some people actually have a little thing called, I don’t know, standards!” Chazz continued, “Mindy’s a prime example how Alexis has held her down and now she’s starting to see that! And seeing as I’m not an easy target, she has to resort to more drastic steps to assure that she was number one! Namely, making me out into a rapist in hopes that I leave the school out of shame! But back to Mindy! She has four brick walls surrounding her and if she tries to go above that wall of restraint she ends up hitting the glass ceiling! That’s why I have to win this duel! Not just for what she did to me and trying to do to me still, but for people like Mindy, people she’s held down and back in order to push herself to the top of Obelisk Blue! “
Jaden blinked out of shock. He couldn’t believe what Chazz, the same guy who had a love duel with Alexis, the same guy who went on a self-pity trip when he realized what he did to Alexis during the whole Society of Life debacle, was declaring. This couldn’t have really been him. “Do you believe what you’re saying? We’ve both known Alexis for three years now and she’s-”
“I’ve known her a lot longer than you have, Slacker!” Chazz shouted. “I’ve known Alexis before you even had your little duel entry exam, I think I have more legit grounds to judge her than you do!”
“Even so, I still think you’re wrong!”
“Oh, so you think I am a rapist?”
“I never said that!” Jaden declared, becoming rather annoyed with Chazz. It was bad enough he challenged her into this duel, now he was putting words in his mouth? Was Chazz looking to bully him into agreeing with him? “I don’t think Alexis is the type of person to do that, nor do I think that you’re a rapist!”
“There isn’t any other choice, Soldier!” Hassleberry explained with a slight frown as he and Blair walked next to Chazz. “It’s either one or the other! Either you with us or against!”
“I love you and all Jaden, but you really need to face facts!” Blair added. “Alexis isn’t the girl you thought she was! Even Mindy basically agrees and she was her roommate since first year!”
Mindy took a brief pause from her futile task as she responded with a nod, deciding not to say anything to the matter as they all basically said the majority of her thoughts. All along Alexis had a secret agenda. And Jaden’s optimism was becoming annoying. Why couldn’t he just face the facts about Alexis? As well as Serene, Bastion, and Jasmine, but at least they’ve all taken a side. Jaden on the other hand, more or less, decided to take the path of a coward and remain neutral in the situation. She didn’t know how Syrus felt the situation, let alone where he was at the moment, but he’d probably at least picked a side. As much as she could understand how the Slifer boy felt about seeing two of his friends duel not only for the right of being known as the best of Obelisk Blue, but to stay at Duel Academy, he’d have to pick sides sooner or later.
Ra Yellow Boys’ Dorm
“Well…” Bastion sighed as he checked his watch, as it indicated that it was 8PM. “We might as well go to the place!”
“Where is the duel being held?” Jasmine asked. She was so focused on the whole situation between Chazz and Alexis that she had forgotten to even ask about where the duel was being held.
“Why the beach of course!” Bastion explained. “The same place of the love duel!”
“Talk about ironic…” As Jasmine turned the knob to open the door, she was a bit surprised. “Alexis!”
“Hey guys!” She smiled as she stood with Serene and a duel disk in hand.
“You’re in a better mood.” Bastion observed. “Knowing the situation…”
“I don’t want to think about it!” Alexis admitted with a sigh, “The thought of leaving this school if I lose is tough enough.”
“Yeah!” Jasmine scoffed, “If anyone, Chazz should be the one to leave Duel Academy. It’s not like it’d be the first time, either!”
“I concur! A lot of trouble would’ve most likely been avoided if Chazz haven’t returned.” Bastion placed in his two cents.
“While he did seem helpful, I’ve also heard about the bad things he did…” Serene said as Bastion sighed. Maybe it was out of her nature, but she wouldn’t even say a bad thing about or a bad word about anyone, no matter what they did. The girl was a bit too nice for her own good, perhaps. He had to feel sorry for the girl to a certain extent.
“Let’s just get this over with…” Alexis sighed. As far as she was concerned, the sooner this whole issue was dealt with once and for all, the sooner she could put it behind her and move on with her life…
Usually at this time of day… or night rather, only a few people would appear at the beach. For tonight, that wasn’t the case as a big event was about to happen. Not the event that the school would sponsor, mind you. But it was well endorsed by the majority of 3rd-years at the school, building it up to be the ultimate battle of the sexes, despite the controversy that surround it.
Chazz narrowed his eyes as he placed on his duel disk. Here he was once again, fighting for not only his pride in Obelisk Blue but to stay in Duel Academy. This time it wasn’t a low-rent Ra Yellow like last before, but someone whom up until recently he had great feelings for. At times, he wondered how, let alone why did it end up the way it was now. Maybe it was fate for it to happen. Or maybe it was because one of them wasn’t as real as she made herself out to be. Nevertheless, this would be the last night of Alexis Rhodes in duel academy, as she will repent for all of her crimes of deceit committed not only against him but also against the rest of the students.
Alexis checked the contents of her deck before sliding it into her duel disk. Chazz had gone too far. First by trying to **** her, then managing to somehow create a fake recording of her inviting him over, suggesting intimacy to use that to frame her and to soil her reputation! She’s known him to do some desperate, low-down, and just plain rotten things to further his own reputation and ambitions before, but he really stepped over the line. Tonight, Alexis will make sure to deal with the “Chazz Problem” once and for all.
Flanked by his gang, Max watched on. In truth, he didn’t really care about who won or lost, since he hated both participants in this duel. But then again, Missy, who from what he saw at a rather-small distance to the left, was watching as well. And she looked rather fine tonight! She was dressed in a black leather jacket over a black tank top, black skirt, and black knee high boots over black stockings. He wondered why she was dressed like that, and by that it meant color. Then again, when he thought about it, it was rather appropriate to wear black. After all, it would definitely be a black day for whoever loses this duel. Thought he would liked Alexis to lose (He’d have a better chance with a happy Missy than an upset one with what he had in mind…), it wouldn’t affect him that much if she didn’t. No matter what happens, somebody was dropping out!
Blair stood beside (In her opinion) her man as she watched on. It was basically what Alexis was looking for. To eliminate one obstacle in her way to Jaden, and if she manages to win her duel and sent Chazz leaving, she knew that she’d be next on her list! For her sake, she hoped that Chazz not only beat but also crushes Alexis and get her out of the way of her happiness with Jaden once and for all!
Bastion glared towards Chazz, his rival for Alexis’ affections. Clearly he was obviously out of the picture, but then again so would she if Chazz managed to win. He already thought less of Chazz when he threw his deck into the ocean two years ago, but what Chazz did, or tried to rather, to Alexis destroyed all little respect he had left for the Obelisk Blue. Chazz had some serious growing up to do and maybe then after another leave of absence Chazz would act more maturely.
From his face, hurt and confusion could be seen as Jaden was torn between two friends, each believing the other betrayed them in the worst possible way. He didn’t think that Chazz was that kind of guy to **** someone and he refused to believe whatever nonsense Chazz was spewing about Alexis. Honestly, this was a lose-lose situation for both Alexis and Chazz. All personal issues aside, they were the best duelists of their respected Obelisk Blue dorms. If one is forced to leave, while they may be glad about their departure for their misdeed, others will be happy with the other for forcing them to leave. For example, Chazz’ll be on every girl in Obelisk Blue’s blacklist if Alexis, the Obelisk Blue Girls’ dorm’s best duelist, is forced to leave. And to make things more troubling in this situation, where was Syrus? Ever since the duel was announced he hasn’t returned to the Slifer Dorm or even the Ra or Obelisk dorms either. By tonight, it was likely he was already losing a friend and he didn’t want to lose another.
“Ready to lose Alexis?” Chazz taunted as he placed his deck inside of the duel disk.
“If anyone is losing this duel, let alone leaving, it’s you Princeton!” She glared.
“Look guys, are you sure you wanna-”
“Shut up, Jaden!” They both snapped at the brunette. If he was going to take the coward’s way out and refuse to pick a side, then he best kept his mouth shut and stay out of it.
“Now Alexis it’s time to put up and shut up!” Chazz declared. “It’s only fitting that your final duel takes place at the same spot where I confessed my feelings! The same feelings that you’ve hurt!”
“That’s nothing compared to what you’ve done.” Alexis countered, “I’ve only done as many hurtful things to you recently as you’ve done since you arrived!” She blinked at what she just said, realizing that it wasn’t doing her any favors. “Er…I mean a fraction of what I’ve done…no that’s it!”
“See Alexis, you can’t even come up with a good lie to make yourself look better! It must be the guilt you’re feeling! But it’s too late! You abused me, Alexis! And now I’m going to abuse you and I’m going to-”
“Chazz it up!” The group of students, the group that agreed with Chazz and was on his side, including Blair, Hassleberry, and Mindy, chanted. “Chazz it up! Chazz it up!”
“NO!” Chazz yelled, stopping the crowd. “The chant ‘Chazz it up’ represented the old Chazz. The same Chazz who would sacrifice everything and anything for the treacherous wench in front of me! The old Chazz died the moment she not only broke my heart but when she shattered it into a million unrecoverable pieces. But that’s okay! That’s all in the past now! For all those who are just like Alexis! For all those who are jealous of my skills, my power! For all those who believe that I am nothing but a rapist, the lowest form of life! Well you’re in for the nightmare of your life! No matter how hard you try to keep me down, I laugh in the face of you slackers! No matter how hard you try to crush me, I laugh in all of your faces! Like the phoenix, I resurrect from the depths of demise! I am The Man! The Champ! The Legend! I… Am… Chazz… Thunder!”
“THUNDER!” The crowd cheered, raising their fists as high as he was.
“WHO AM I?” Chazz asked with a shout!
“WHO’S THE CHAMP?”
“WHO WILL WIN?”
Alexis narrowed her eyes in disgust. “Whatever! No matter how many “rebirths” you have or how many idiots chanting for you, it doesn’t make you any more of man than you really are! And trust me, even Syrus is more of a man than you’ll ever be!”
“Whoa… What’s with Lex?” Jaden wondered, noticing how cruel Alexis was being. This wasn’t how she usually acted when dueling anyone, even Chazz!
“Of course she’s angry Jaden, don’t you see how Chazz’ treating her?” Jasmine responded, a hint of harshness in her voice.
“Like she’s treating him any better!” Mindy added.
“How she’s treating him is only a fraction of what that bloke deserves for what he did to her!” Bastion declared.
“Now you just sayin’ that because you have feelings on her!” Hassleberry accused the third-year Ra.
“My infatuation for Alexis has nothing to do with this! I’m just stating the facts!”
“What’s wrong? You’re not happy that the crowd’s more in my favor that yours, Alexis? Maybe because they’ve seen the truth!”
“Let’s just start this duel already!” Alexis demanded. “The sooner I beat you, the sooner I can get you out of my life for good!”
“My thoughts exactly! I’m on a clean slate, and what better way to start the next chapter of my life than being rid of you!”
“Game on!” They both declared as their Life Point counters were set.
“Normally I’d say Ladies first, but since I hardly consider you to be a lady at all, it’s my move!” Chazz drew a card as he looked into his opening hand. “First, I’ll play Graceful Charity by drawing two cards and discarding two!” He declared as he proceeded to examine the three cards he just drew: Fiend’s Sanctuary, Cost Down, and one of his strongest dragon cards. ‘This’ll show her…’ He decided to send Y-Dragon Head and Z-Metal Tank to the graveyard. “First, I’ll play Fiend’s Sanctuary!” He announced as a metallic-like fiend token appeared on the field (0/0). “I can summon a Metal Fiend Token, but it’s not going to be staying for long!”
‘Probably going to summon Armed Dragon LV5…’ Alexis deducted as she could see through Chazz’ strategy: He was going to bring out his Armed Dragon, looking for a quick victory.
“Next, I’ll play another Spell Card: Cost Down, allowing me to lower the level of all monsters in my hand by two for the remainder of this turn! Allowing me to tribute my Fiend Token for this!” Chazz showed the third card he drew. “My Light and Darkness Dragon (2800/2600)!” As the token monster was sacrificed, from above came a Dragon which, from its head it was white on one side with a wing of an Angel, black on the other with a wing of a demon. “This dragon also counts as a Dark-Attribute monster, but you’ll be hearing more about him in a bit! Some advice: I wouldn’t use one of your Spell or Trap cards if I were you!”
“Your threats aren’t going to work, Chazz!” Alexis drew a card. ‘This’ll knock him down a few notches…’ “I’ll play Cyber Tutu (1000/800) in attack mode!” She announced as a pink-haired young girl, dressed in a red and white leotard, save for the pink Tutu, appeared on the field. “And since that your Dragon’s attack is higher than hers, she gets to attack you directly! Cyber Tutu! Attack him with Pounding Piroutette!” As the girl went for the direct attack, a bursting mixture of light and darkness fired from the dragon’s mouth! “What the?”
“I’m sorry! Did I mention that my dragon can negate the effects of all of your cards upon activation?” Chazz asked in a mocking manner. “But don’t feel too bad, because every time I activate its effect, my Dragon’s Attack Points decrease by 500 (2300/2600)!”
Alexis narrowed her eyes. “I’ll place one card facedown and end my turn for now!”
“Good! Now it’s Thunder’s turn!” Chazz drew his card! “Next, I’ll play Armed Dragon LV3 (1200/900) in attack mode!” A small orange-colored dragon appeared covered in metallic armor. “Now to attack your Cyber Tutu! Armed Dragon, attack her now!”
“I don’t think so, Chazz!” Alexis revealed her facedown card. “I play Negate Attack, that’ll end your attack and your Battle Phase!”
“Weren’t you listening? My dragon can negate the effects of all of your cards! Light and Darkness Dragon, negate her Trap Card!” As the opposite-colored dragon fired its blast once more, Negate Attack’s power was gone and thus destroyed, leaving Cyber Tutu to take the smaller dragon’s attack and Alexis to take damage as a result…
“Now Light and Darkness Dragon (1800/2600), attack her directly!” Chazz ordered the assault to continue as Light and Darkness Dragon fired its blast, although a bit weaker than one would expect (But then again, its ATK has been lowered from use of its effect.), as it hit Alexis directly, lowering even more of her Life Points.”
“I’ll place one card facedown.” Chazz explained, ending his turn. “And you’re better than me?” He mocked.
“Oh I am Chazz, and now I’ll show you why!” Alexis drew a card as she reviewed her situation. Chazz has two monsters on the field with ATKs of 1800 and 1200, meanwhile in her hand were Etoile Cyber, Blade Skater, Cyber Gymnast, De-Fusion and Polymerization. She could fuse Etoile Cyber and Blade Skater to summon Cyber Blader and take out Light and Darkness Dragon. Then she could use De-Fusion and attack Chazz’ Armed Dragon with Blade Skater before it could evolve next turn. “Now, I’ll play Polymerization! Fusing my Etoile-”
“Too bad my Dragon has something to say about it!” Chazz declared, “Light and Darkness Dragon destroy it!” The Dragon fired its blast once more at the Polymerization card, once again negating the effects of Alexis’ cards as its ATK decreased even more (1300/2800). “You wanna know what’s so sad? This has been too easy!”
Alexis twitched. “What did you say?”
“I mean c’mon! Seeing that you’re the Queen of Obelisk Blue, I expected a tougher challenge from you! Or maybe it’s because of your guilt that you’re throwing this duel! Knowing that you don’t deserve to be in this academy, let alone Obelisk Blue!”
“Okay, Chazz has seriously lost it!” Jasmine hissed.
“I don’t know for sure, but I’m certain that the girl Chazz’ dueling’s not my mentor!” Serene declared, noting the way Alexis had been playing so far. “Not the girl who I strive to become like at this academy!” Was she having an off night or what? If she was, then she picked a very bad time.
“But then again, maybe Alexis realizes that what she did was wrong and feels so much shame that she’s trying to lose to save face without admitting her mistake!” Blair suggested.
“Alexis? Throwing a duel on a matter as ridiculous as this, let alone when it’s her who’s in the right?” Bastion responded out of outrage. “Such nonsense!”
“As much as I doubt that Alexis is guilty, Serene, Blair, and Chazz have a point.” Jaden explained. “Usually Alexis duels like the best, but right now she’s repeatedly running into his dragon’s effect and to be honest, she hasn’t been dueling that great!”
“What do you mean I haven’t been dueling that great, Jaden?” Alexis snapped, managing to overhear his unneeded, let alone unwanted, commentary.
He held his hands up in defense, “Look I don’t want to offend you or anything, but let’s face it: Chazz even warned you about his dragon’s effect and you still played your Spell and Trap cards! Unless you were planning something, why else would you purposely use strategies that Chazz could easily stop?”
“Easy: She’s a fake!”
Jaden blinked out of shock and slight confusion of hearing that accusation as he, as well as everyone else, turned towards the top of cliff, facing the source of the answer…Alexis? “Hold on! You can’t be up there! You’re down here!” Jaden pointed towards the Obelisk Blue girl that was on the beach while still looking at the new arrival. “Please don’t tell me you have your own clone saga now…” He whined.
“Relax Jaden, like I said this girl who’s dueling is a fake!” She declared, appearing to be soaked as well as another person who was just as, if not more, soaked as she was.
“Hold on! Syrus?” Hassleberry blinked in shock. Has he been with Alexis – or at least this one – the whole time?
“Two Alexises?” Jasmine and Mindy both wondered in unison.
“But…but she… And I… and she…” Chazz was having a hard time to figure this out. If Alexis was up there, than who was it that he was currently dueling? What he said next clearly could be said for everyone else who saw what was happening right now. “WHAT’S GOING ON?”
The truth has been revealed as the real Alexis has showed up… or has she? Next chapter, just when the answers appear, so do new questions, especially those that negate said answers.
