Neferiah nods in response. She then enters the stadium, retrieves her Beyblade and steps back out. Ferrah walks up her sister. Neferiah looks down at her shamefully. “I’m sorry, Ferrah. I lost,” she says.
Ferrah looks back at her sister with a deceptively joyful grin. “Aw, don’t feel bad. Sure, you may’ve disgraced us with that embarrassing loss because again, you let your ego cloud your judgement. I mean how many times do I have to tell you, if your boobs were your brains you might actually be dangerous,” she says, politely belittling her sister. Embarrassed and ashamed, Neferiah hangs her head even further, unwilling to look Ferrah in the eye.
“Hey, that’s no way to treat your sister,” Gingka said sternly to Ferrah.
“Excuse me,” Ferrah replies, glaring back at Gingka with a dark grin.
“Your sister battled hard out there and she did her best. As her younger sister, you should give her credit for that,” Gingka tells Ferrah. Like Yugi, he doesn’t like seeing someone being bullied, especially if it is by that person’s sibling.
“Oh, is that what you think?” Ferrah coyly says with a snide grin. “Allow me to enlighten you, Gingka Hagane. Despite our appearance, Neferiah is actually my younger sister by three years.”
Gingka and Yu are stunned. Due to her height and more mature appearance, Neferiah could easily be mistaken for being the older sister versus Ferrah’s smaller, child-like appearance. Yami Yugi, however, is not surprised. He knows better than anyone that looks can be deceiving. Even so, he finds Ferrah’s behavior toward her sister deplorable.
“Ferrah, is it?” says Yami. “Siblings are supposed to care and respect each other. What you have shown just now displayed neither one.”
“Hmph, what do you know about having siblings? Last I checked, you don’t have any,” Ferrah said with contempt.
“That may be so but I have friends. And friends can be like family. We care for each other and help each other when one of us is in trouble. And I have seen first-hand what one sibling will do for another out of love,” says Yami.
Ferrah laughs snidely. “Oh, I see, you’re must be talking about your pal Jonouchi Katsuya and how he helped his dear sister Shizuka Kawai,” she said in a mocking voice. “Big brother Jonouchi uses the prize money from Duelist Kingdom to pay for little sis’ operation. Big waste of money if you ask me,” she says.
“Hey, what your deal?!” Gingka shot at Ferrah. “How can you put down a guy helping his sister, huh?!” Ferrah looks at him contemptuously. Gingka continues, “Any brother who does that is pretty darn awesome in my book.”
“Hmph, then that’s a pretty lame book,” Ferrah says, crossing her arms and turning her nose up.
Gingka throws Ferrah a stern look. He can see that there is no getting through to her so he says nothing. Just then, Yu steps forward and approaches Neferiah.
“Hey, good battle, Neferiah,” he says with a big smile.
Neferiah looks down at Yu. She is a bit perplexed. Never has anyone praised her for a good battle. The only praise, if it can be called that, is from her older sister Ferrah who still belittled her even after winning a battle, saying that ‘she didn’t try hard enough’ or that ‘it wasn’t her best’. She had hoped that Ferrah would one day give her genuine praise. However, that type of compliment came from the little boy before her. Unsurely, Neferiah extends her hand to take Yu’s. All she wanted was a compliment. If she can’t get it from her sister, then a stranger will do just fine. Suddenly, her hand is viciously slapped away by Ferrah.
“What do you think you’re doing?!” Ferrah snarled.
“Um…I…I,” Neferiah says timidly. She then turns her head in shame away from her sister.
Ferrah glares at her sister, forcing her to step back with her head hung low. Ferrah then throws her glare at Yu. “You’ve got some nerve, don’t you?” she says.
“What’s your problem?! I was just trying to be nice!” Yu shot at her.
Ferrah grows in agitation. “I’ve had enough on this! Lord Osiris, we’re done!”
With a smile, Osiris turns Neferiah’s card over. Neferiah is wrapped in a soft glow as she fades away, but not before thanking Yu and smiling back kindly as she vanishes.
Ferrah watched the exchange with disgust. She cannot stand the fact that her sister took on the kindness of their opponents. It infuriated her. “Yu Tendo,” she said, grinding his name through clenched teeth. “Pray the gods that we do not meet in battle. No one turns Neferiah against me.” With that, she turns away and walks back to the other side of the stadium.
Yu watches her, unsure of what her problem is. Rather than press the matter further, he returns to his side of the stadium. “Whatever,” he responds with his usual snobbish demeanor.
“Yu, are you alright?” Yami Yugi asks.
Yu briefly looks at Yugi questionably before answering. “Yeah, I’m good. Why?” he says nonchalantly.
“Ferrah should not be taken lightly. Should she be your opponent, be wary,” Yami advised.
Yu smiles and says, “Don’t worry about it. Actually, I hope to battle her just so I can shut her up. Also, we have to get Ben-Ben and Kenchi outta of there and your friend as well, Yugi.”
“That’s right! We have to beat those guys if we want our friends back!” Gingka says, smiling big.
Yami Yugi chuckles lightly at Gingka’s zeal. “You are correct. Rescuing our friends is top priority.”
“In that case,” Gingka starts. He then looks toward Osiris and points a finger. “Hey Osiris, bring on the next match!”
Osiris laughs. “Very well,” he said. “As you wish, Gingka Hagane.” He stands up and says aloud, “The next match shall commence! Gingka Hagane versus Kobal of the White Sands!”
“Alright, I’m up!” Gingka excited.
“Go get ‘em, Gingky!” cheers Yu.
“Gingka, best of luck,” Yami Yugi says, flipping him a ‘thumbs up’.
“You got it!” Gingka says, returning the gesture in kind. He then looks to the barrier holding their friends. He knows they cannot her him but he lets them know that he will battle his hardest to free them nonetheless. Smiling brightly, Gingka flips them a ‘thumbs up’.
“Alright, Gingka’s up now!” says Kenta.
“So that flame haired kid’s your best pal, eh?” Jonouchi said.
Kenta nods. “He’s the best blader around. He won Battle Bladers and the World Beyblade Championship,” he tells him.
“Gingka’s gone up against some really strong bladers. He shouldn’t have a problem with this match,” adds Madoka.
“Your Gingka is just like our Yugi,” said Anzu. “Yugi’s beaten some of the toughest duelists back in our world. With those two working together, Osiris and his cronies don’t stand a chance.”
“You got that right, Anzu!” said Jonouchi.
“You said it!” added Benkei.
“Hey, let’s give those guys our support. Whaddya say?!” Honda suggested.
“Now dat’s what I’m talkin’ about!” replies Jonouchi with gusto. He and Honda bump fists.
“Yeah, let’s show them we have their backs!” Kenta excitedly piped up.
Gingka watches the barrier and then motions to Yami and Yu to also look back. Even Yugi, from within the Millennium Puzzle, joined them. All of their friends stood with their thumbs up in support. Not even a magic barrier created by an Egyptian God can keep them apart. Yami, Yugi, Gingka and Yu look on with pride, smiling happily for having the best friends anyone can have. They all return the gesture in kind.
“They’re great, aren’t they?” Yugi says to his other self.
“Indeed,” Yami replied. “We’re lucky to have them.”
“Actually, I was referring to Gingka and his friends,” Yugi says with a laugh.
Yami laughs. He had assumed Yugi was talking about their companions. He should’ve known that Yugi’s influence extends to everyone around him. “Of course. Gingka and his friends have a very strong bond. We have known them for only a short time but I can tell that have been through a lot and they made with each other’s support.”
“I guess strong friendships exist no matter what world you’re in. Whether it’s our world or this one,” said Yugi.
“Very true, Yugi. Strong friendships exist so long as the bond is just as strong and there is a mutual understanding,” says Yami. “This is even true with new friendships.”
Yugi nods in agreement. “Speaking of new friendships, let’s give Gingka our support in his battle,” he says to Yami.
“Absolutely!” Yami replies.
