I just came back from a party, sorry guys. I was also able to come in contact with this JOAT, whom I am inclined to believe is town based on the evidence they have given.
A complete bandwagon. Last thing I wanted. Especially when there's no actual evidence. Or at least nobody's sharing anything with me. And no, I'm not a role cop. Just a cop. Sput turned up as a town, and in the same PM from FA, it said I had been roleblocked the next night phase because of the check. Throwing all this out there because for some reason you've all decided to believe this so called JOAT.
Now the update shall tell the truth.
After what had transpired the night prior, things suddenly became quiet as the sun rose. Far quieter than usual. The three remaining Arclights were in a state of both shock and mourning, leaving the remainder of the duelists to contemplate a course of action.
“Guys,” spoke one loud and boisterous brunette young man, “come on, we’ve got to pick up the pace here! Are we just going to sit around and do nothing today?”
His bluntness reminded some present of Judai, and it was as though his spirit lingered on in the other’s words, jolting some among the group into action. However, a young teenager with purple hair seemed a bit put-off by this attitude.
“I’m not sure if we should just go on like nothing happened last night, though,” Ryoga said. He thought back to the time when his sister laid in a hospital in critical condition. He knew that it was impossible to just move on after that had happened, and that wasn’t even on the level of actually losing a loved one. It had been the Arclights who had caused his sister Rio’s accident, but even still… That was in the past now.
Thomas abruptly stood up at Ryoga’s words, drawing all eyes onto the Asia duel champion. With a gaze as cold as steel and clenched fists, he began to speak. “No, we have to do something. I for damn sure am not going to just let whoever took Mihael get away with it.” His expression harshened drastically as he added, “You can count on that.”
At the voiced threat, Byron remained quiet, while Chris seemed to quickly look away from his brother.
On the outside, he tried to remain stoic… or at least, as stoic as one could be after losing their little brother. But on the inside, an emotional storm raged on. He hadn’t personally done anything to feel guilty for, he wasn’t the one who dueled Mihael…
And yet, an all-consuming guilt continued to grow and grow. If things continued as they were… would he lose his father and brother as well? What was even the point anymore of following those horrible orders, if those he loved would die regardless? Kaito, Mihael… No, enough… was enough.
As he rose from his spot beside Byron, he locked eyes with Thomas. They stared at each other for several moments, Thomas unsure of the meaning hidden within his brother’s deep blue eyes. Eventually, the older broke the stare, and headed outside. Not far behind was Thomas, trailed by his father.
They were alone. In the privacy the outdoors offered, Chris breathlessly whispered, “It’s my fault Mihael is gone.” The full impact of the words did not register immediately to the other two, but once it did, it was met with looks of confusion, sadness, and – in Thomas’s case – anger.
Before his brother could pipe up with whatever was about to leave his mouth, Chris hushed him and Byron with a tight embrace, one that lasted only momentarily. As he did so, he told both of them, “I’m going to do whatever I can to stop any more tragedy from occurring. I will do what Kaito couldn’t.” Though he spoke quietly, there was a certain firmness in his words. He wouldn’t be dissuaded.
To avenge Kaito… to atone for helping those who eliminated his brother… He walked a lonely path to the duel spirits who had treated him like a puppet. Did he believe he could triumph…? Not even he was certain. But there was no way his guilty conscience would let him stay behind with the others. Not even the very family he fought for.
It is now NIGHT 5. This phase will end on November 12th, at 10:00 PM EST. You may now send in your night actions.
