((AN: since I'm sure not many of you actually read descriptions here: Elliot Wolfe, Oz Emeberry, Pierce and Rushana Williams are my ocs and my property, Kin Hooker belongs to (see description) and Evangeline Byrd, Alexia and Lex Tokami are also my ocs. Any other characters not listed are owned by Kazuki Takahashi and Yana Toboso. This idea came to me a while back and yeah...Ciel learns to play Duel Monsters! Slight hints to Puppyshipping later on and LOTS of Puzzleshipping/Prideshipping. Though this will be kept at a PG rating. Have fun!))
"Japan?!" Ciel Phantomhive looked up from his work at his butler, Sebastian Michaelis.
The demon nodded "The current Yu-Gi-Oh has invited us along with the Trancy manor, Hooker and Wolfe manor to Japan for a special get-together to battle out for the title of Yu-Gi-Oh."
Ciel huffed, pushing away the paperwork and leaned back against his chair. "when are we scheduled to leave?"
"alright, arrange a flight--"
"The Yu-Gi-Oh is paying for it all."
Ciel glared at Sebastian and sighed. The demon hinted a smile and left the room promptly. The young Earl glanced down at the papers the Yu-Gi-Oh had sent and cast them aside, standing up.
"I need a bit of research on this character..." He meandered over to his laptop on the other side of the room and sat down. Ciel typed "Yu-Gi-Oh Japan" into the google search bar and clicked the first link;
"The Yu-Gi-Oh of Japan, Yuugi Mutou, is a Duel Monster legend. Having mastered the game and winning many tournaments including Duelist Kingdom and Battle City, Yuugi Mutou is the best card game player Japan, and maybe the world, has ever seen." Ciel read the passage out loud, almost boredly. "Duel Monsters?" the earl tipped his head "I've never heard of that." he typed it into the search bar and before he could hit 'enter' his butler Sebastian spoke from behind him, startling Ciel
"Duel Monsters is a strategic card game that was believed to be played by ancient Egyptians in the time of the Great Pharaohs." Sebastian sighed
"Pharaohs?" Rushana walked into Ciel's study, her high heels clicking with each step.
Sebastian glanced back at her "Didn't I give you work to do?"
Rushana shrugged "you did, and I finished." she smiled and looked to Ciel "so what's this 'Yu-Gi-Oh' I heard you mention?"
Before Ciel or Sebastian could say anything the front door rang out loudly as someone was likely beating on it.
Ciel huffed and held his head "that would be Elliot...." he glanced up at Rush and Sebastian "do try to keep him occupied, and keep Oz under wraps. I don't like him wandering my manor like he did last time they were over here." Sebastian nodded and left, dragging Rushana along.
Rushana sighed and opened the door an shrieked as she was wrenched forward and hoisted over Oz's shoulder. Elliot huffed "finally."
Rushana growled and kicked at Elliot, and hissed as Oz restrained her legs easily, nearly bending them backwards.
"what are you doing?!" Sebastian growled "put her down. Now."
Oz smirked. "I'm afraid I can't. Master's orders to get Rush back."
"what's going on?!" Ciel appeared behind Sebastian.
Elliot growled "Phantomhive."
Ciel grit his teeth. "Wolfe."
Rushana groaned "Oz!! Set me down NOW!! I'm not scheduled to work at your manor until tomorrow!!"
"oh I know, we just have a small problem at my manor." Elliot growled. "his name starts with a "Ronald" ad ends with a "Knox." can you guess whom it might be?"
Rushana was silent for a moment "what does he want?"
Ciel groaned "please finish this business elsewhere?"
Oz glanced from Ciel to Sebastian "you invited us here."
Ciel blinked "I didn't--Sebastian." he glared at his butler
"Alois Trancy, Elliot Wolfe and Kin Hooker shall be housed at the manor for tonight, as well as their butlers, as we'll be preparing for the flight to Japan. A friend of the Yu-Gi-Oh, Jounouchi Katsuya, will be meeting us at this manor as an accompaniment during the flight." Sebastian stated breathlessly.
"wonderful...." Ciel set his jaw, glancing to Elliot who was grinning.
"Alois is going to be here? And Claude?" Elliot glanced to Oz "fun!"
"just...find a room and begone." Ciel turned and walked off.
"don't go yet!!" Elliot ran past Sebastian and jumped onto Ciel, knocking him down to the ground with a shriek. Elliot grinned and sat on Ciel, crossing his arms.
The younger Earl gasped, trying to wiggle out from under Elliot without success.
"you like games, let's play some games!!"
"Ciel!! Jounouchi is here!!" Elliot shouted from the front door where the tall honey-haired teen stood smiling slightly.
Sebastian sighed "must you really shout? The young master is trying--"
"Oh hush, Sebastian! I got here first!!" He turned to Jounouchi. "Come on in!!"
The tall demon huffed in exasperation. Alois came wandering down the hall and stopped mid-living room when he noticed Jounouchi standing there. "Oh! Hello, Jounouchi!!" He smiled and bowed slightly to Alois.
"Are you all ready to get a move on? I got Yug' waitin' for us in Japan!" Jounouchi checked his cell and turned a bit to Sebastian "who are you?"
The demon smiled "I, and butler to this manor, Sebastian Michalies."
The blonde nodded. "Oh, and ya'll can call me Jou. Sayin' my full name is a mouth-full."
Elliot smiled. "Jou, I like you!" Alois shot him a look and Elliot just shrugged happily. "I'm going to wake up Ciel and Kin!!" He ran off down the hall.
Jou blinked. "There's more of ya?!"
Sebastian nodded "indeed, eight in total. Nine including you."
Jou sighed "good thing while ya'll in Japan you're stayin' wit Yug' at Kaiba Corp.!"
The black-haired butler smiled. "Do take a seat, and, can I get you anything to eat or drink?"
Jou thought for a moment. "A soda would be nice,"
