Yuugi decided it best to go ahead and run the game shop today to let his grandfather rest. He hummed softly while he swept the floor and rearranged the shelves to place new releases in the front displays. They honestly hadn't been doing too great with newer shops popping up all over the place. That spirit seemed evil and dark, which made Yuugi weary in case of him hurting anyone. That was the last thing he wanted.
Yuugi had left the puzzle upstairs so he could focus on working in the shop and not try to get the evil spirit to talk to him again. He was doing fine, had a few customers here and there but he still found himself distracted. The young boy felt drawn to the puzzle and it eventually lead him back upstairs to retrieve it, wearing it around his neck like always.
"Behave yourself, I'm working.."
He whispered to the puzzle, not wanting any mishaps or mayhem. Of course, Yuugi knew that the spirit wouldn't listen to him so he anticipated the worse to happen. Like maybe him trashing the shop or hurting a customer or something of the sort. The spirit laughed darkly, not showing himself but speaking directly to Yuugi.
"Behave? So you don't trust me?"
"Why should I? You're evil..."
Yuugi whispered back, not wanting his grandfather to think he was talking to himself.
"Evil is a little cold, Yuugi. Not saying it isn't true, however."
The spirit appeared in one of the darker corners of the room, narrowing his crimson eyes and smirking at the innocent other. Yuugi looked at him briefly, but tried not to get distracted as cleaned off the display case.
"Please...Don't make today any harder than it needs to be..."
"And what makes you think that I would try to distract from your work, little one?"
The younger, innocent boy turned his violet eyes back to the case, making sure it was spotless and there were no fingerprints from yesterdays costumers. Yami rolled his eyes, kind of annoyed with Yuugi for ignoring him. So, he decided to mess with him. He waved his hand slightly and knocked a few boxes off their shelves before disappearing.
Yuugi jumped as the heavy boxes hit the ground with a loud thud, turning around to see the mess. He sighed and dropped tp his knees, picking all of the contents up in slight irritation.
"Fine...I won't ignore you, but stay silent when there's a customer or you'll scare them away. Okay?"
Yuugi sighed, not looking up. The spirit didn't respond and he wasn't sure if that was good or bad. It made him worry more than anything.
"If you're up to something, please don't do it. I can't lift a lot of these boxes back onto their shelves alone."
Yuugi sighed, pushing the boxes Yami knocked down to the corner since he couldn't lift them on his own.
He sat behind the counter and read as he waited for a costumer to take interest in their store. School was still in session so there probably wasn't going to be many kids in there right now. Soon, his grandfather came down the stairs and looked at the young boy.
"Yuugi? What are you doing home? Are you sick?"
Yuugi jumped slightly at hearing his grandfather's voice and dropped his book, looking at the man and nodding.
"I woke up really nauseous so I figured it would be best to stay home. But I did clean the shop for you this morning."
"Oh, you didn't have to do that. You go back to bed and get well."
The young boy nodded, going back upstairs to his bedroom with his puzzle and closing the door.
"There...We're alone now, you can stop wrecking the place..."
Yuugi whispered to the puzzle, setting it on his desk and closing his curtains to make the room dark for the spirit. Suddenly, Yami was sitting on Yuugi's bed with his arms crossed and a smirk across his pale lips.
"I don't like to be ignored, Yuugi."
Yuugi felt chills go through hia frail, small body as the spirit's crimson eyes stared right through him. He forced his own violet eyes to the floor, trying not to seem intimidated by him though jn reality, he was.
"I'm sorry...I just didn't want to look crazy and probably scare a customer...or even Grandpa..."
Yami smirked, leaning back on Yuugi's bed and narrowing his eyes at the smaller male.
"Maybe you are crazy, Yuugi. Possibly batshit insane."
"You're not helping..."
Yuugi whispered, sitting on the corner of the bed beside thd spirit and pouting slightly. Yami raised a brow at Yuugi, his smirk widening more. The young boy was adorable when he pouted as well as so innocent minded. That made the spirit like him more and more. He wanted to corrupt him. To break him. Eventually, he would get his way as well.
The spirit sat up, reaching over to the boy and began playing with messy, blonde strands of hair. Yuugi tensed and flinched when the spirit reached fpr him, fearing that he was going to hurt him.
"Wh-What are you doing...?"
"I didn't notice how cute you were before."
Yuugi blushed, jumping up and backing away from him and avoiding his captivating eyes.
"You heared me, little one."
The young male shifted uncomfortably, still attempting to avoid eye contact with the other. He had never been called cute before.
"W-Well um...thank you...? I guess..? I've never called cute before...let alone by another male..."
He stumbled over his words, not wanting to admit that he kinda liked Yami calling him cute. He was too stubborn to admit hia feelings towards anything, really. The spirit stood, walking over towards Yuugi and lifting his head. Yuugi reluctantly looked into the spirit's eyes, trying to look away and get away from him but he had nowhere to run. A sadistic smirk played across Yami's pale lips as he pressed them to Yuugi's. Yuugi didn't know what to think, he had never been kissed before.
