Walking outside, you find a letter with an intricate silver name on it. It is your name. Opening the letter, it says:

I look at the letter in mild shock, reading it over and over again. I can't let Regi find out about this for her sake... I think, and stuff it in my pocket. "Regi, you awake?" I ask, not quite sure if she was. It is pretty early after all.
Yawning as I finish reading the letter, I smile remembering the duel I had with that Anthony person. What's to hide with this group anyway? I think, smirking.

In front of a large crowd-- numbers spanning to millions, the people around the outdoor open stage cheered onto my name as I appeared into the centre stage of my concert and it seems to be my biggest concert ever. In unison they repeated; "Regi! Regi! Regi! Regi! Regi!" As if it was some kind of mantra. The place was grand, fireworks could be heard spanning into the sky as flares of fire spurted into the air as it prepared for my single concert. Everybody was intoxicated from my appearance. I loved the crowd and I gave them my biggest smile as the announcer? Why would there be an announcer here? This isn't a talk show... He had a microphone with him and dressed awfully like the trampy Draco when he used to be in the Crimroz academy. He said in a very enthusiastic tone;
"REGI! Aaaaaaaaaaree you awake?!?!" What?
I was awoken as somebody shook my body back into existence. I yawned and stretched my body along the bed still in my comfortable undies. "Thanks for ruining what could be my best dream ever..." I tried to return to sleep. "Good night..." I turned my back against him in the bed, trying to get back to bed.
'Mercio, huh,' I thought as I finished reading that ominous letter I got. It would be a quick enough walk to Mercio Academy's ruins from Crimroz Academy, given I was working there as one of the teachers, grading papers, making kids fall to their knees, whining about how they were beat by an 'old man'... I wasn't even 30 yet! Why the Hell did they call me 'old man'!? Nevertheless, I was still pretty confused about the instructions... But I was on the same island, why did I still get a piece of jewelry anyway? And when the Hell were they supposed to meet? Tonight?
'Yeah, probably tonight,' I thought, breathing out an exasperated sigh. I checked the clock. Class wasn't due to start any time soon, though I still came out to do some last minute grading. I pulled out my PDA and checked my schedule... It seemed I had time to ditch lunch for a mini-investigation.
"Probably a prank... Though this'll be an excellent way to teach some assholes a lesson... Heh, looks like I'll be going anyway," I affirmed as I shuffled my new 'superintendent approved' deck. It didn't seem that they took kindly to their instructors walking around with a Dragon Ruler deck, so he unfortunately had to switch.
"Why don't ya just go out and live your dream Reg," I chuckle, still half asleep as well. "I'm thinkin' of goin' up near Crimroz, maybe see Ray again," I say, trying to figure out a way of getting to where Mercio is without Regi getting suspicious.of what I was doing. Wasn't too well constructed since I haven't heard Ray's name since I read about Crimroz in the paper a month or so ago.
I yawn and stand up, goin' into the kitchen, looking at some of my puppets on the way, some based on my Gimmick Puppet cards. Magne Doll, Des Troy, Nightmare Puppet..... I go into the kitchen and start cooking some eggs for me and Regi once she woke up.
A pillar of smoke comes up from a mountain near the demolished grounds of Mercio academy.....
"And where would you be if I did?" I said as I got up to a seated position to look at Draco. "Going to Crimroz and see Ray? What are you going to do? Settle old rivalries with him?" I leaned over to hug him and gently pecked his cheeks. "Well I'm going with you. No questions asked." Draco yawned and stood up so I allowed him to go. I felt awake now, so no use in trying to sleep. I heard the stove being turned on and something frying. I got up from my bed and put on a black tank top and grey short pants on; just about comfortable for the time being. My hair was a mess and I don't like it. I spent some of my time brushing my hair and tied it up to a bun with some hair bands before I walked out to the kitchen.
I smile and spin around hearing footsteps behind me. "Hey, I see you decided to emerge, before you say so, yes, you're very welcome for your sleep being ruined," I say, leaning into a mocking bow with a childish grin. "How many eggs you want?" I ask, turning back to the stove and turning the knob up a bit.
I snickered when he had guessed what I was going to say. I walked closer to him and wrapped my arms along his hips. "I just want one. With lots of bacon if you care about me!" My head looked over his shoulder to watch him cook, then to the window in front of us. It was still dark and the skies of night were still filled with the stars. I let Draco go and cook while I went on to be happy and sat on the table. I looked at the clock and it read 4:51 am.
I chuckle when Reg puts her arms along my hips, then as she begins to sit down, I say, "Jeez, since I care about you, hmmmm..... do I? Meh, I was gonna have extra bacon anyway, might as well," I say with a grin as I get some bacon on the stove as well, turning on the second stovetop. "Does my most venerated highness have any more requests of me?" I ask with my grin going down to a smirk, noting the clock on the microwave we have. It said 4:53. I take out my phone feeling it buzz 4 times, what my phone does when I receive a text.
The text I received read, "Draco Blane, we have made many requests for you to join our next duel tournament, all of which you have ignored. If you wish to deny us please do so, but as of now we are yet to know your opinions. Thank you." I sigh and turn off my phone again, slipping it into my pocket. The 3 eggs I had on the stove look ready enough, so I put two on one plate and one on the other, and then wait for the bacon to crispen, which was still yet to be hot enough to eat.
While waiting, I glance at Regi. She's gonna be stubborn enough to come, I'll have to figure out some way to ditch her at Crimroz so I can see what these 'Frozen Blade' guys want with me. Could be the same idiots that keep tryin' to get me to join that tournament I think, feeling kinda bad about not telling Regi. For years there were no secrets between me and Reg. But this is to keep her alive if these guys are serious, you never know, I think with a grimace. To keep my smile and maybe just for fun, I throw my Magne Doll puppet at Regi, knowing she gets creeped out by them by how she constantly pesters me to get them out of public display.
"Jeez, since I care about you, hmmmm..... do I? Meh, I was gonna have extra bacon anyway, might as well," I turned my face at him and pouted. I didn't really reply with anything else, I know Draco will cook some for me. My bacons. I love bacon. While Draco prepares the other stove, I heard him teasing me again and I responded with a big and high pitch 'meh'. Draco's phone buzzed again. What is it, the fifty second time? I looked at his face as he read the text.
"The tournament guys again?" I asked him. Draco only turned around and looked at me for several moments. I broke the gaze bteween us, before something hit the back of my head and it was his cursed doll. "Eek!" I said as I threw it away from me, landing into the rubbish bin as it did. "I told you to let go of that doll Draco!" I said angrily when he threw it at me. "And you wonder why I don't want to marry you!"
"Yeah, I do wonder why you won't marry me, come again?" I say with my grin returning, not caring the puppet landed in the bin. I can just get some more, I've got a great guy who sells 'em to me with special orders. I think when I see the puppet land in the bin. With these thoughts going through my head, I add "It's a puppet, not a doll Reg," with a fake exaggerated sigh.
The bacon looks crisp enough, so I take it out, seeing another chance to tease Regi. "Mmmmm...... this smells really good, shame, it looks like I don't have any extra," I say with a pretend pouty face as I start serving up, putting a generous amount of bacon on Regi's plate and a reasonably mediocre amount on mine. As I put Regi's plate down I take a piece of bacon off and put it in my mouth, keeping it sticking out of my mouth a bit. I eat the bacon then sit down, giving Regi a fork seemingly out of nowhere.
