Best Yugioh Forbidden Memories Deck (No Cheats)

meteor_black_dragon_by_andytantowibelzark-da9p5gc

I played enough Forbidden Memories for one lifetime. I finally reached my goal; I created the best possible deck I could without GameShark cheats. However, I did use Memory Cards to duplicate cards I won through grinding, though that does not count as a cheat.

You can’t win many of the best cards in the game no matter how hard you try, such as Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon and Swords of Revealing Light. You can only win them in the PC modified version of the game. Like all people who play the game without cheats on Play Station, I had to make do.

Monsters:
3x Meteor B. Dragon
3x Blue-Eyes White Dragon
3x Twin-Headed Thunder Dragon
3x Skull Knight
3x Sanga of the Thunder
3x Seiyaryu
3x Red-Eyes Black Dragon
3x Meteor Dragon

Equip Spells:
3x Bright Castle
3x Dragon’s Treasure
3x Invigoration
3x Megamorph

Normal Spells:
3x Raigeki
1x Umi

The monster lineup consists of Dragon and Thunder monsters, plus the many ways you can fuse cards to get such powerful monsters. The duelist Underlordtico created his own super powerful deck using Skull Knight, Metalzoa, and Zoa, focusing his deck on strong DARK monsters. I could not win Metalzoa, so I had to be original, and build my deck around Thunder monsters instead, a deck I think is more consistent.

Twin-Headed Thunder Dragon is a Thunder monster, but you can power it up with Dragon’s Treasure like the top two heavy hitters, plus it allows more fusions, making the deck more consistent. I tried meshing Dragons with DARK monsters myself but it didn’t pan out so well since the two classes are far apart from each other. Thunder and Dragons are closer.

The Equip Spells are the key to this deck because I can use them to easily power up my monsters beyond 4500 ATK to conquer Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon, the strongest monster your enemies can possibly use in the game. Raigeki is a staple as it wipes out all your opponent’s monsters. Umi is a unique card; a Spell that transforms the field into an ocean, boosting all my Thunder monsters.

My concern is Umi is too slow a card, but if I can pull it off I get a huge advantage over any opponent I face. It also rusts Metalzoas – I have no idea how Underlordtico got that card without cheats, unless he transferred it from a memory card with cheats.

Yugioh the Dark Dimension – Prologue

AUTHOR’S NOTE: Welcome to Season 3 of my series (Season 8 of Yugioh), where I will write things differently than before and in a better style. A typical chapter from now on will be five pages at most to have more content in each chapter and spent less time writing, since I dislike the style authors use to write most novels and I simply don’t have the free time now as I did before. I like how less verbal artforms like film, paintings, and games work since they use symbols and actions to give you substance rather than telling everything up front or through tedious dialogue between characters. I hope to translate my ideas in a similar war albeit through writing. I’m trying to explore different ways of writing and conveying more serious ideas so forgive me for being pretentious.

Prologue

She woke in a sudden moment, in her sleeping bag on the airport floor, not from any nightmare that frightened her out of her sleep but from something she did not understand yet. Her sleep, deep and dreamless, was the coma of a person who, after a day of immense suffering and fatigue, falls into for what seems like countless hours, as the infinite sleep a person falls into as she dies or the infinite sleep before birth. A second ago she was not and now at this moment she was. She sat up, hot and sweating from the heat of the sleeping bag and in constant pain from her bruises, burns, and broken ribs; she forgot at all who she was or what happened, and looked around the airport for answers, to piece her shattered self back together, as Atem the lost pharaoh did when recovering his long buried memories.

Nature gave her body of strong build of average height, her powerful hands wide, her fingers long, her nails large. Her face reflected the person behind it: a broad forehead, full cheeks and lips, dark brown eyes as vessels for a burning, fiery light, her skin brown and red, and her hair a lion’s mane of black curly hair. She was Marina Bozuslowsky, daughter of Aleksandar Bozuslowsky and Arifa Masri, but she long shortened her name to Maya Brook. She started dueling as a professional at the age of seventeen, joined her friends JC, Yukio, and Jolene to become national champions and defeat the snobbish rich demagogue Matthew, remained a pro for four more years, entered this world championship tournament to somehow stop the now late Egyptian dictator Heishin and claim the forbidden ancient Book of Isis, and now waited for the tournament finals having succeeded doing both. And she liked playing the piano, writing satires, communism, alternative subcultures, and black cats. “I think I got it about right.” She said to her heart.

Maya hobbled her way to a large pane of class, her breathing aggravated by the broken ribs, to see the outside world. Never before had she seen a sunnier, prettier June morning, nor did she feel a sun comfort her through her black sleeveless shirt and jeans quite like this either. But she did feel a deepening darkness despite it all, a gathering pressure, an electric static before the storm. Too many people died in this tournament from the resurging Ghouls, too many secrets revealed from Mathias and his warrior Saints, and she underwent too much struggle and loss already.

Yet all this struggle, sacrifice, revelation, was merely the tip of the iceberg, the darkness that was to come. Ra-Amun, the sun, shattered the world through his divine powers into stark bright lights and black shadows, a contrast where all stood revealed. It would be high noon; each finalist would smash against the other with everything they had, everything they were in these last duels, and only one person would stand on top. Maya’s whole life was at stake for if she won she would pay off her many dueling and college debts but if she lost she would be in ruin. More importantly, she knew her innovative dueling would not keep her ahead of her competition forever, and she needed to push herself further not just to stay in the game but reach a new creative level. All life was art and war, darkness and heroism. If music taught her anything it was these principles from Beethoven, and the Eroica the finest lesson. Let this heroic journey reach fulfillment at last.

——————————————————————————–

Pegasus J. Crawford, the man who created Yugioh itself, put himself deep in thought as he quietly sipped his wine in the small dining room of the complex that would be the lodgings for all eight finalists. He went so far as to design each room to reflect the true nature of each respective finalist, putting his great skills as a painter to use, whereby the carpenters, electricians, and plumbers followed his exacting instructions. The dining room, the hub each apartment revolved around, held eight large mirrors that reflected off each other face, creating a prism of infinite refractions within each mirror. Pegasus saw his own self in one mirror; his dandy red business suit, his tall stature, broad shoulders, long fair hair, one brown eye, shattered into shapes he could barely recognize.

Such was the true nature of humankind, where there was no one person in each body but only a labyrinth no Theseus could ever escape. What of the Minotaur at the center? Pegasus amused himself with the idea of seeing it revealed by the finalists playing his very game. The high priests of Egypt extracted Ka monsters from people’s souls and used them in battle for this very purpose; it was one reason Pegasus created this game in the first place. The Millennium Items, magic artifacts smelted from gold and the bodies of ninety-nine sacrifices, used by the high priests for such purposes, were lost, but the Book of Isis, holding one spell used to create the Millennium Items – merely one spell of the many mysteries – was still at large. The evil person who used the Book would cause untold catastrophes, which Pegasus wanted to avoid at every cost. He instinctively reached for his left eye socket but did not find the Millennium Eye he used to have within. He could no longer use its divine powers to see further than mortal eyes could. Now he was just a man and could only use his human powers.

Pegasus left the complex behind with such melancholy thoughts in mind, trotting on the soft sandy ground of the small Pacific Island where the finalists would be held. The warm light, blue sky, and fresh sea did not comfort him but only worsened his mood, the setting sun cut through everything with its harsh light. He thought of Sophia, one of his favorite adopted children and protégés, locked in the dangerous tournament, and hoped she would come out in one piece. Using a refined wooden cane, the debonair Pegasus showed his grit as he slowly climbed his way up a rocky hill and the massive pyramid at the center of the island he built alongside his colleague Kaiba, the battleground every duel would take place, laboring his way to the very top.

Seto Kaiba, the mighty technocrat who singlehandedly drove Yugioh in its modern form with his massive wealth and brilliant inventions, stood tall with his shoulders crossed as a bronze memorial statue, glaring down the pyramid to the white sand, green trees, and blue waves beneath him. Let this tower engrave in history the supreme achievement of the tournament’s winner and prophesize the great events of the future, the imperious Kaiba thought. Here, in this very tower he built, let history be made! He thought back to the first Battle City tournament he hosted thirteen odd years ago, how he also hosted the finals on top of a mighty tower, and watched history form as Atem became the first official world champion. Now he would witness something just as grand in the thirteenth Battle City as the Yugioh game would evolve to an ever higher level.

Pegasus, who finally reached the top, cut Kaiba’s lofty thoughts, “Whew! We should have made a smaller pyramid, Kaiba-boy. I think we made our point.” He patted his damp face with a silk handkerchief before stowing it away in his suit. Kaiba turned his piercing blue eyes to glare at contempt at the annoying man who cut his thoughts with such a frivolous remark. The two men could not have been more different. The gay, effete Pegasus contrasted the severe Kaiba, who had tall and with broad shoulders as Pegasus, yet wirier, donning his battle armor; a black leather body glove with a long white trench coat. He wore this same uniform at the first Battle City and wore it now even though he would not duel. He had a far greater plan, to defeat the very champion of this tournament to take the title of King of Games for himself. Why waste his time in an entire tournament when he would make it to the finals anyway? “Speak! Why are you here?” He demanded at Pegasus.

The debonair man sighed in a knowing way, “Very well, my Wagnerian Ubermensch. I would like to just share the beautiful view with you but, as such simple joys are far beneath the higher man such as yourself, I will get to the point. Beware of the Book of Isis and the people who seek it. It is owned by a finalist, it calls out to me, knowing I once held a Millennium Item. The Ghouls have been thwarted but one dangerous man remains, Matthew Carter. He will enter the finals to claim the Book for himself and avenge his grandfather’s demise, but even if he fails Gernand remains as well as a dark shadow, an evil intelligence I know little about. They are not threats right now but they will be.”

“First of all,” Kaiba scoffed at Pegasus, “The Ubermensch derives from Nietzsche you illiterate old fool. Second, I couldn’t care less about any occult threats lurking under whatever rock they choose to hide in. My tournament is about the future, not the dusty ancient past. You would do well to remember that.”

Pegasus rebounded, “You call me an old fool but look at yourself! You sound exactly like you did thirteen years ago, right down to the ‘I focus on the future’ spiel. You carry the obsessions and grudges you held for literally over a decade. Imagine how bad they would smell if they were food. You are, dare I say, an Ubermensch parody, more like Siegfried than Dionysus. It was this thing called satire. You know, a joke?”

“Jokes are for happy-go-lucky, shallow types who cannot stand the darker sides of life.” Kaiba growled. “Do you want me to destroy you before the finals even take place?”

“I must disagree, Kaiba-boy. Humor let’s us see the extra dimension in our lives as tragic creatures we would otherwise never see and transcend them, and this includes the so-called darker sides of life as well. Only man lives in such horror he needed to invent laughter. You are a tyrant but will never be an artist while I will always be both, and only this type of person can win this tournament.” Pegasus did not budge and inch throughout their entire discussion and, seeing Kaiba’s mild surprise, said, “Yes, who would have thought little old me who created Yugioh in the first place would know so much. You’re constipated character is why you always failed to beat Yugi and why generic antihero rival characters always fail.”

Kaiba became so frigid the very warm air around them dampened. “You’re meaningless foppish words did not move me an inch.” But Pegasus knew it wasn’t true. He had a special talent in annoying Kaiba and nothing amused him more than seeing Kaiba overreact, like watching Donald Duck get mad in a Disney cartoon. Kaiba punched a code on his duel disk, a newer sleeker model that outdated even the new models the finalists had used up to this point, the machine projected a holograph roster of all eight finalists, which Kaiba read out loud.

Matthew Carter
Heir to the Carter Foundation. Twenty-two years old. Has not dueled in a tournament since he lost the nationals in 2005. Dominates the opponent with powerhouse monsters overriding effects, favors Lightsworn and Horus.

Mathias Blackheart
Leader of the Saints, a team of professional duelists based in Ireland. Age unknown. Uses psychological warfare. Favors Nordic Gods and Horus. Teammates are Maximus and Ivy.

Maria Wight
Best duelist of Team A Cappella. Based in the UK. Twenty-three years old. Wins through card control by controlling resources. Uses Normal Pendulum monsters.

Svanhildur “Stella Nova” Minervadottir
Leader of Team Stratosphere. Based in Iceland. Twenty-three years old. Specializes in controlling the field with floater monsters. Favors Yang Zing. Notable teammate is Willow.

Marina “Maya Brook” Bozuslowsky
Best duelist of Team Baby Blast Furnace. Based in Iceland. Twenty-two years old. Used a variety of strategies in her career, now swarms the field to create many high level Extra Deck monsters. Favors banishing cards. Teammates are Yukio and Sophia.

Hannibal Davidson
World-renowned archaeologist and classical scholar. Based in Athens. Thirty-one years old. Uses strategies that spring during the opponent’s turn. Favors Artifacts.

Tamas Varga
Leader of Team Impossible. Based in Hungary. Twenty-eight years old. Uses beatdown. Favors all Dragon-Types. Teammates are Bence and Beze.

Weevil Underwood
Leader of Team Loser Dog. Based in Japan. Twenty-six years old. Uses strategies that slowly weaken the opponent’s monsters and bind the duelist in a lock. Favors all Insect-Types (obviously). Teammates with Rex Raptor.

“Kaiba! Weevil may be a loser but you must at least pretend he is noteworthy. He did survive the tournament after all. He has just as much right to the finals as everyone else.” Pegasus admonished his colleague.

Kaiba scoffed at the mere idea then left in a huff, leaving Pegasus alone to appreciate the view on top of the pyramid. The Egyptians thought the pyramid likened to the rays of the sun and thus paved a stairway to the Underworld. Well, Overworld if you think about it, Pegasus joked to himself. So, which finalist would make it to the top and reach the Heaven of being forever remembered in history? Did it even matter? Well, it certainly did, at least for Pegasus’ entertainment and Kaiba’s vainglory.

I will do a similar thing, giving profiles for all of my characters in Season 2, except I will go into more detail over their dueling styles and basic personalities as creative beings. I divided all my characters into separate groups and will post one group a day so readers won’t get overwhelmed.

Yugioh Journey Through Kemet – Table of Contents

15317853_10211488001140981_4235622813520075933_n

A user from the Pojo Forums named Aarikku suggested I posted a summary and table of contents of my work to make it more popular. I did it for my very first fanfic, Yugioh City of Dreams. Now I am doing it for my second, Yugioh Journey Through Kemet (Both went by different names.) I gave every chapter some revision to make the story better. My writing was much more awkward back in the day.

Edited all chapters. Summary of story here:

Prologue

Heishin, a power hungry general makes a deal with the Devil to get dark magical powers.

Duel 1

Heishin takes over Egypt. His sissy son, Hassan, escapes.

Duel 2

Maya and Jolene go to a rave dance party in Chicago. They get drunk.

Duel 3

Maya fucks up her exhibition duel the way Eminem fucked up his rap battle at the start of 8 Mile.

Duel 4

Hassan finds Maya in jail, sends her to Iceland. He thinks she’s special because he dreamed about her. Maya and Yukio meet their friendly rival Stella and her teammates. They add a girl named Sophia to their crew to make their own team.

Duel 5 

Matthew makes a deal with the Devil to get magic powers too.

Duel 6

Kaiba and Pegasus host a 12 day tournament in Egypt. Egypt is a dictatorship in a state of chaos, you say? Makes better ratings!

Duel 7

The team goes to Egypt! Maya has her first duel with Seeker, that one guy who used an Exodia Deck.

Duel 8

Maya pwns Seeker.

Duel 9

Maya pwns a pathetic drug addict because she’s cheaper than Mr. Krabs.

Duel 10

Stella and her lesbian life partner Willow duel Yukio and Sophia in a tag team duel. The Saints (Mathias, Maximus, and Ivy), a team of weirdos who love buffalo chicken pizza, call dibs on dueling the winning team.

Duel 11

Sophia feels down because she’s a shrinking violet with self-confidence issues. Her teammates give her a pep talk and she proceeds to decimate her opponents.

Duel 12

The Saints pwn Maya and Yukio.

Duel 13

Pegasus flirts with Kaiba over tea and crumpets. The Saints invite our emo heroes to eat buffalo chicken pizza.

Duel 14

Ghouls turn Assiut into a rave dance party. They kidnap Akira, some annoying Weebo, and Sophia.

Duel 15

Umbra and Lumis, those two annoying Ghouls who are always together, force Akira to duel Maya. Akira is tasteless enough to run Turbo Towers, so Maya makes a quick example of him.

Duel 16

Alexis, Matthew’s abused girlfriend, duels Yukio. Alexis is tasteless enough to run Nekroz, so Yukio pwns her.

Duel 17

Bandit Keith is now a Ghoul. He cheats to beat Sophia in a duel and tries to rape her.

Duel 18

Not every duelist survived the Ghouls’ rave dance party, so the survivors stick together in a village. Maya gets angry and jealous over lily white Sophia getting so much sympathy. Yukio calls Maya a bitch. Maya calls Yukio a failed manchild. All three make up by the end of the chapter.

Duel 19

Yukio duels Weevil, also known as bug boy.

Duel 20

Yukio squashes bug boy.

Duel 21

Maya duels Rex, also known as dino dork.

Duel 22 

Maya tears dino dork a new cloaca.

Duel 23

Sophia duels Mathias, the wannabe walking meme generator.

Duel 24

Sophia turns Mathias into a lolcow.

Duel 25

Hassan grows a pair and goes back to Egypt to give his country back to the people.

Duel 26

Maya and Yukio get down but you can’t see any of it because 4Kids.

Duel 27

Ghouls commence rave dance party #2 in Luxor.

Duel 28

Back in Chicago, two Ghouls invite Jolene and JC to the rave dance party. Jolene and JC say no.

Duel 29

Seeker tries to beat Mathias. Dies.

Duel 30

Maya and Yukio, Yugioh’s best dysfunctional couple by far, duel Umbra and Lumis. They get into a catfight and nearly lose.

Duel 31 

Maya and Yukio divorce… then get back together to pwn Umbra and Lumis.

Duel 32

Keith tries to rape Sophia again. Sophia has enough and rapes him instead.

Duel 33

Heishin kidnaps Maya and pushes her down a pit to get the story’s MacGuffin. Fails.

Duel 34

Maya lies at the bottom of a pit for 3 days contemplating suicide. She decides to be the next Messiah instead.

Duel 35

After escaping a deep, dirty pit, Maya takes a hot bath and gets some well-needed nap time. Hassan, the Saints, and Maya go to Cairo to defeat Heishin. The Saints beat up Matthew and Alexis because those two little prep school shits are more annoying than Jaden is. Maya shoots Heishin in the head.

Duel 36 (Post merged, so it has 2 chapters.) 

Maya feels bad about killing a cruel dictator, an action that saved thousands of lives. Hassan, tired of everyone’s bullshit, sends all duelists to the airport to deport them. Our heroes get back together to get ready for the finals.

Yugioh Children of Prometheus 2: Duel 36 – Where to Now?

DAY 12 : 12:13 AM : CAIRO

Maya stood completely still as if frozen by time, locked in the present. Everything else seemed still. The corpse of the man she killed lay quiet as if made of stone, as if the man was asleep. Maya was so locked in the moment she could only take small bits of information at a time. The burned smell of the fired gun she held. The metallic smell of blood. The broken desk. The split face of her victim. Yes. Her victim. She killed him. Maya could barely accept the fact. She was a murderer. She dropped the gun in disgust, backing away from the corpse, shuddering, and wept in her hands.

Hassan stood in shock, dropping his gun. He could not believe Maya killed his father. He hated her more than anything in the world and wished he had the strength to kill her, to send her to Hell where she belonged. But he realized how pointless it would be, and how pointless it was to wish his father did not die. There was no way for Heishin not to die. If he did not die in battle he would be put to death in a military court for sure. It was pointless to hate Maya.

Maya expected him to lurch back from her in horror at what a monster she was but he didn’t he. He pulled down her hands from her face and hugged. “It’s over.” He said to her over and over again, somewhat like the Maya comforted Sophia. “It’s all over.”

Maya too was relieved it was all over. Except it wasn’t. The finals lay ahead. She preferred to ignore it but if she did she would dwell on her murder but thinking about the finals was worse. She always knew she was a difficult person. Even in high school she would steal from people and damage property but she knew she was a good person who stood for everything right deep down. She never thought she could kill someone like a truly evil person could. But proof of her evil was in front of her.

She was terrified. If she could murder someone what other atrocity could she commit? If God did not exist than everything was permissible and likewise Maya had no limits to her actions. She thought she did and she was a good person who did the right things at the end of the day but she destroyed those illusions with her own hands. In college she could still pretend to be a rebellious teenager and do as she wished. She worked in the adult world, influenced the adult world for many years, but now she had to fully admit she was in that world and understand the heavy consequences she reaped with her actions while in it.

Hassan tapped her on the shoulder. “Let’s go.” He left for the main chamber, Maya silently following him. The building’s center was a horrible mess with soldiers scattered everywhere in bloody heaps and furniture burned into charred splinters. Only a few soldiers were alive, all of them serving Hassan. The winning leader saw the Saints together at a corner, Ivy tending to Maximus’ burn wounds. Mathias gave him a wry thumbs up. We won. Hassan returned the gesture.

He said to Maya, “I’ll bring your friends over here with all their belongings to the Cairo Airport. My troops will guard it with their lives. You will be safe. Your tournament is over.” He radioed his troops with his walkman. “Deliver all duelists throughout Egypt to the Cairo Airport.”

Hassan recognized a crushed corpse as the remains of the senior general. He ran to the corpse and wept fresh tears. The senior general was his private tutor in his earliest years. The man was a second father to him. Now he was died. But Hassan was a man now, a man of his people. He paid his guardian his final respects before escorting Maya to the airport.

DAY 12 : 3:18 AM : CAIRO

Yukio and Sophia greeted Maya warmly at the airport with many hugs. Maya ached inside but refused to tell her friends what bothered her. She didn’t want Sophia, who she loved with all her heart, to hate her. She didn’t want Yukio, her lover, to leave her. Nothing is worse than aching and having friends you can’t reach out to even when you are close enough to touch them. Such was Maya’s state and she resigned herself to it, her first murder weighing heavily in her heart. She had truly grown up.

DAY 12 : 5:13 AM : CAIRO

Hassan’s troops escorted more duelists to the airport. Our heroes noticed Stella and her team and instantly greeted with them. They passed the time recounting their adventures together, trying to put the war behind them. The Saints arrived to the airport, battered and bruised but not broken. Mathias was irrepressible as ever. He challenged our heroes to a pizza battle. Whoever ate the most buffalo chicken pizza faster would win a free Pot of Avarice.

Mathias’ bait was all too tempting. Maximus took it in a second. Their game was on. The buffalo chicken pizza duel began! With Ivy as referee! Our heroes and Stella’s team watched with bemused horror as two grown men greedily wolfed pizza down like hungry children. The contest was fierce but Maximus’ short body didn’t hold up against Mathias’ large one. He excused himself to go to the bathroom.

Everyone laughed at the Saints’ mischief. Even Maya in her terrible state of mind couldn’t stop herself from laughing. Life goes on, even for killers.

Rex and Weevil arrived to the scene too late. A disgruntled Rex complained that if they only went in the army car a few minutes sooner they would’ve seen the entire contest. A disappointed Weevil corrected him, insisting they didn’t have a choice when the Gestapo seized them by force. Weevil finished, “And I might add, you farted in the van! You stink like a skunk! You stunk up the place so bad even soldiers fainted!” And the two dorks kept on quarreling.

Maria’s team and Akira’s team arrived. Our heroes paid them cordial greetings, civil with each other but most definitely not friends. Michael and his team arrived, long disqualified from the tournament, as did other teams that didn’t make it to the finals. Maya those that did, spying her competition. The Saints and Stella were her most obvious rivals, as was Maria, who she wanted to settle things with once and for all. Rex and Weevil somehow made it to the finals, in the first time in their entire career in fact. Would Matthew be there for the finals? She had no idea.

Sophia suddenly spaces out. She stares at one point but doesn’t really look at it. She sees a vision; deep in space an ominous black hole looms ahead, a center of darkness, with debris orbiting it, dangerously close to falling in. She sees three people standing, a family of one woman, one man, and one child looking onward as if ready to brave traveling past the event horizon.

Sophia returned to the airport. Yukio waved his hand in front of her face. “Yoohoo! You here?”

“Yeah, I’m fine.” Sophia replied to him. “I think we have many challenges ahead.”

“Of course we do.” Yukio said. “But no matter what happens we’ll be together. And yes, Maya, I mean it. It’s not a cliché. If we stick together, trust each other, help each other, we can overcome anything.”

Sophia gave Yukio a high five. Maya did not.

Ra, the sun, once more rose to the sky as he always did, driving out the chaos of night and blessing the land with daylight. Yukio reminded Maya and Sophia that details on the finals would be released at noon, when Ra reaches his highest point. It was best to sleep while they could.

Our heroes agreed on it. They created makeshift sleeping bags using blankets in their suitcases and used their backpacks as makeshift pillows. Yukio and Sophia easily fell to sleep while Maya did not, her thoughts still weighing heavily on her. She turned to you, reader, and said, “I don’t know what future lies ahead but I must always face it with courage and take it in stride. I would say something witty right now but I’m out of jokes. More will come in the third novel, that I assure you. May you face any challenges ahead of you with courage, with feet light and head held high. I the way I did. If you need my strength ask and I will give it to you. Good morning.” And Maya fell asleep.
