NOTE: This chapter is rated FR18


Here’s a new little Yu-Gi-Oh crossover oneshot I cooked up one day. This time it’s between Yu-Gi-Oh and Full House. I was listening to Cat Lore and Egyptian Music from the soundtrack to the 2004 film Catwoman, and the teaser trailer for the film as well. It was then that, while listening to them, I got an idea for a new Yu-Gi-Oh crossover oneshot, but a different, little one this time. I figured that, after reading so many Yu-Gi-Oh drabbles – especially the ones with Kaiba in them – I might as well try my hand at one myself. After all, I like the idea of Kaiba as a vampire, especially because he’s so easy to write for that way.

What a Girl

Some secrets need to be kept
Some stories should never be told
Some reasons shouldn't be understood
They just might turn your blood cold

Who needs all the answers?
Who takes all the chances?
Who said the truth’s gonna save you?
When the truth can be dangerous

Like the way I feel
It’s all right to steal
What I need from you
Do what I have to do
Say what I have to say
Go where I have to go
And that’s dangerous
Dangerous to know

--Hilary Duff, Dangerous to Know

That’s all I wanted, something special,
Something sacred in your eyes,
For just one moment, to be bold and naked
At your side
Sometimes I think that you’ll never understand me
Maybe this time is forever, say it can be

That’s all you wanted, something special,
Someone sacred in your life
Just for one moment, to be warm and naked
At my side
Sometimes I think that you’ll never understand me
But something tells me together, we’d be happy

I will be your father figure (Oh baby)
Put your tiny hand in mine (I’d love to)
I will be your preacher teacher (Be your daddy)
Anything you have in mind (It would make me)
I will be your father figure (Very happy)
I have had enough of crime (Please let me)
I will be the one who loves you
till the end of time

--George Michael, Father Figure

His cobalt eyes glowing in the darkness as he watches from the shadows in the corner he has picked out himself, Kaiba smirks as he eyes the little blond-haired girl lying on her right side in the bed, fast asleep. She is seven years of age.

He then plucks her name from her mind – Stephanie Tanner. The picture of innocence itself, he thinks. But innocence never lasts for long.

With that, he makes up his mind.

After checking that the other girl, who he knows is Stephanie’s older sister, is in a deep sleep, Kaiba, wearing black slacks, a long sleeved black shirt without buttons and with a bit of a turtleneck, a belt with a beveled engraving of KC, a flowing purple colored trenchcoat with pronounced shoulders, wide arms, and long flowing bottom, a pair of steel cuffs about the forearms and very high black boots with a slightly raised heel in the back on his feet, then makes his move.

He steps out of the shadows and along the carpet in a catlike fashion over to Stephanie’s bed. When he finally reaches her bedside, he bends to her level. For a while, Kaiba studies her face with his eyes. She is so beautiful, he thinks. If it were possible, an angel could’ve carved it out of either marble or stone. Still, he believes that she is one of those rare girls who is a beauty even as a child. That is, if there ever is such a thing.

Allowing himself a secret smirk, Kaiba then raises his right hand and runs his fingers through Stephanie’s blonde locks. He curls one of them around his index finger and feels the strands, as though he can see the beauty in each strand there is. After a few minutes, smirking still, Kaiba loosens the ring of hair, and then moves his mouth onto Stephanie’s in a deep and very intriguing kiss.

It tastes quite sublime. Like strawberries, cherries and a little bit of sugar all mixed in together. But still, to Kaiba, a kiss like that is divine. Heavenly. Whatever most mortals want to call it or give it a name for. However, it’s much more than that.

To Kaiba, it’s the kiss of a big brother figure to a young girl he sees as his little sister figure.

Finally he pulls his mouth away. Before Stephanie has a chance to wonder who it is that has kissed her – or even let a moan escape her lips in a siren-like fashion – Kaiba then makes his move as she opens her eyes and reveals to him the cobalt beauty that hides behind those lashes in the nighttime. He raises his index finger and presses it to her lips.

Finally, he leans over and places a kiss on her forehead, and then pulls his index finger away from her trembling lips.

Stephanie is quite for some time after he silently leaves, slipping into the shadows in the catlike manner that is always associated with him. It’s like an aura of some kind.

However, after she soon falls asleep, something stays with her in her mind. It’s not his hair – the color of dark chocolate and always looking fine. It’s not how he moved his long fingers across her cheek – with very precise movements, almost as though he knows what he’s doing.

It’s his eyes – the cobalt color of the ocean. Sometimes they darken like the clouds in the sky before a storm comes in. The proverbial “calm before the storm”, as she’s heard some people call it.

His eyes haunt both her and the dreams that come to her. For the rest of the night, they’re all she sees.

The next day, as Stephanie writes in her notebook about the dream she’s had, only two words keep on coming back to her mind: cobalt eyes.

She can’t escape them, no matter how much she wants to.

And she knows she never will.
But she also wonders who they could belong to – even though they’re a little bit like her own, but also very different.
