The moment Yami finished his sentence, torches the sat along a stairway suddenly burst to life one by one, leading up to an ancient royal seating area. The final torches light spontaneously to reveal a copper toned bald man with dark eyeliner, large gold rings in his ears wearing an expensive suit. Lavish jewels lined his fingers. The man stood tall and greeted his guests. “Welcome, Gingka and Team Gan-Gan Galaxy. And a bestow of greetings to you as well, Pharaoh,” he said, emphasizing with a polite bow. The man’s voice boomed like thunder yet is smooth as silk.
“So that’s the guy who calls himself Victor Amadeus?” said Gingka.
“Yeah, that’s definitely him,” Yugi replied with a firm tone. “That’s Osiris.”
Osiris throws a piercing gaze and smiles. “And a welcome to you also, young Mr. Motou.”
“Where are my friends, Osiris?!” Yugi demanded.
Osiris laughed. “Cutting to the quick, I see.” He holds out a hand surrounded by ethereal light. Yugi, Gingka and the others notice the glowing area on the arena wall. The light glows intensely and fades quickly revealing Yugi’s friends inside a magical barrier. Yugi is shocked and relieved to see them.
“Jonouchi! Honda! Anzu!” he called to them.
Inside the barrier, Jonouchi, Honda and Anzu notice that they are no longer in the lavish room Osiris held them in. They look around in confusion, wondering about the strange ancient arena they now find themselves in. It is then that they spot a familiar face.
“Hey! It’s Yugi!” Jonouchi said with elation.
“I don’t believe it! He’s alright!” Honda added.
“Oh thank goodness,” Anzu said relived.
Jonouchi, Honda and Anzu call out to Yugi, banging on the barrier Osiris has them behind. Yugi sees them yelling and banging but there is no sound.
“Is that them?” asks Gingka.
“Yes,” answered Yugi.
“But why can’t we hear them?” Kenta wondered.
“I don’t know but maybe they can hear us!” says Gingka. He holds his hands near his mouth and hollers out. “Hey! We’re gonna get you outta there! Just hang tight!”
Jonouchi, Anzu and Honda look at the flame haired boy dressed in blue. They see his mouth moving but they cannot hear him. “Hey, who are those guys?” he asks.
“Uh, you got me,” said Honda.
“Maybe they’re that Gan-Gan Galaxy team or whatever,” Anzu assumed.
“Whoever they are, I hope they’re on Yugi’s side,” says Jonouchi.
Gingka continues to speak but they are still not able to hear him.
“Why can’t we hear him,” said Honda.
“I dunno,” Jonouchi replied.
“Maybe it’s got something to do with this barrier Osiris has us in,” Anzu suggests.
“We should probably let them know we can’t hear them,” Honda proposes.
“Jonouchi! Honda! Anzu! We going to get you out of there!” Yugi calls out.
“Hey look,” Madoka says, pointing to Yugi’s friends. Gingka and Yugi watch Jonouchi point to his ears and shake his head. Yugi and Gingka try to figure out what Jonouchi is trying to tell them.
“Uh, I don’t think they can hear us. That’s what he’s trying to tell you,” Yu says.
Osiris laughs softly but his voice still thundered. Gingka and Yugi look up towards him. “You are correct, little Yu,” he says. “The barrier containing Jonouchi Katsuya, Hitori Honda and Anzu Mizaki is soundproof to keep anyone from interfering with this battle.” Then, the Egyptian God lowers his gaze and settles it on Madoka. “Speaking of which,” he says. Osiris then snaps his fingers.
She has no clue how it happened. Madoka looks around in confusion. She was on the ground with her friends one second and the next, she finds herself in the magical barrier with Yugi’s friends. “How?” she says, blinking her eyes blankly.
“Ehh, hiya?” said Honda.
“Madoka!” Gingka calls out to her after seeing her appear in the barrier.
“What happened?! She was just here and now…now she’s there!” Yu said surprised. Benkei and Kenta look back and forth between the barrier where Madoka is now and the empty space she once occupied.
Gingka, shocked and angry, lashes out at the Egyptian God. “You let her out, Osiris!” he says, shaking a clenched fist.
“You should take solace in the fact that she is unharmed, Gingka Hagane,” Osiris said, gazing sharply with a grin.
“Hey what’s the big idea?!” Yu shot out.
“Yeah! You got no business putting Madoka in there!” bellowed Benkei.
“Yeah!” Kenta chimed in.
“On the contrary, there is a reason why I placed Madoka Amano in my barrier along with the Pharaoh’s friends. I wish to test each of you as well and pass my judgement accordingly,” said Osiris.
“Judgement?” Gingka said, wondering what Osiris could mean. “What kind of judgement?”
“To see if Team Gan-Gan Galaxy is worthy of the title of World Beyblade Champions and if you, Gingka Hagane, is worthy of the title of Battle Bladers Champion.” Yu, Benkei, and Kenta look at each other questionably. What could Osiris mean by that? Osiris ends their confusion. “Allow me to explain. I have reason to believe that you would not have won your beyblade battles had it not been for Miss Amano’s knowledge.”
It took a moment for Gingka to process Osiris’ accusation. The same went for Benkei and the others. “What exactly are you trying to say?” Gingka asked finally.
“Let me ask you this. Could you have your battles had Madoka Amano not provided you the analysis of your opponents’ beyblades?” said Osiris. “If you did not have preemptive knowledge about, par say, Ryuga’s beyblade Lightning L-Drago, would have defeated him in the Battle Bladers Tournament, Gingka Hagane? And I address this same question towards your victories in the Beyblade World Championships. Could you have won those battles without Madoka’s input?”
Gingka thinks about the question he was just asked. He recalls the battle with Ryuga. If Madoka hadn’t provided information about Lightning L-Drago, he probably would not have been able to stop the powerful bey from going wild and totally consuming Ryuga. Plus, there was his friends to consider, Kyoya Tatigami, Tsubasa Ootoru and Hikaru Hazama, who all feel victim to L-Drago and had their energy drained. Though they helped out as well, it was his strong bey spirit and indomitable will that won in the end. That same strength also helped Gingka in the Beyblade World Championships. It is now that Gingka also recalls something else important. Something that makes him smile.
“Honestly Osiris, I really don’t know if I would have won those without Madoka. But I do know this. It is because of Madoka and my friends that I was able to win. I was winning on my own but ever since I met Kenta, Benkei, Madoka, Yu and everyone else, I get even more strength from them and in turn, I led them my strength,” Gingka pauses and places a hand over his heart. “It is because I have a strong bey spirit and the support of my friends that I am able to battle. That’s what friends do. We help and support each other!”
“Yeah! You tell him Gingka!” Kenta piped up.
“That’s right! Friends help and support each other no matter what!” Benkei barked loudly.
“And Madoka is no different!” added Yu.
“Ugh! Enough already!” came a high female voice. Yugi, Gingka, Benkei, Kenta and Yu look over towards the group of Osiris’ servants. The short female dressed in silver lavish garb stepped forward. “All this talk about friends and supporting each other is getting tiresome. And it’s a bother,” she says with disgust.
“Lord Osiris, as inept as Ferrah is,” the large man spoke.
“Hey, Odom!” Ferrah shot back at him.
Odom ignores Ferrah and continues, “She does raise a point. We were summoned to test the Pharaoh and Team Gan-Gan Galaxy’s abilities through a Beyblade battle. With all due respect, Lord Osiris, can we dispense with the theatrics?”
“I must agree, My Lord. Also, there are only two members of Gan-Gan Galaxy,” Azeem says respectfully.
Osiris gazes at his servants. Azeem and Odom are his most faithful and trusted servants. They also serve as his advisors. He takes their words with much consideration. They are the only ones who can to speak to him freely. Osiris responds to them with a nod. He returns his attention to Yugi and his friends. Azeem is correct. Of all the members of Gan-Gan Galaxy, only Gingka and Yu are present. “Where are Masamune Kadoya and Tsubasa Ooturo, the other members of your team, Gingka?” he asks.
“Masamune and Tsubasa? What do you want them for?” Gingka asked.
“I requested that Team Gan-Gan Galaxy be present yet only two of you are here.”
“Hey pal! Madoka is a part of our team too! So there’s three of us!” said Yu sternly.
“Madoka Amano is merely a support member, not a blader. She is not of any significance to this battle which is why she is sealed in my barrier along with the Pharaoh’s friends,” Osiris said dismissively. “However, I’ll accept their replacements, Benkei Hanawa and Kenta Yumiya. They’ll make for small entertainment.” The Egyptian God then settles her eyes solely on Yugi who glares back. “Now, if you don’t mind, I would like an audience with the Pharaoh,” he said to Yugi.
Anger builds in Yugi. He can’t stand when people are being toyed with. Even though he just met them a short time ago, he feels a connection with Gingka and his friends. He feels the same as Gingka does about his friends. Jonouchi, Honda and Anzu have been by his side every step of the way through Deulist Kingdom and Battle City. They give him strength and in turn, he gives them strength whenever they need it. Yami feels the same way. He has become close to them as well. He may be the spirit of a long forgotten ruler but Jonouchi, Anzu and Honda treat him just the same. He cannot stand for Osiris mistreating his friends or Gingka’s friends any longer. With a flash from the Millennium Puzzle, Yami switches with Yugi.
“That’s quite enough Osiris!” Yami Yugi says sternly. “You toyed with our friends long enough! If you wish to battle us, then so be it! We’ll defeat your servants and rescue our friends!”
