"Anubis's temple, huh?"said Indiana, thinking. These Millenium items were becoming more and more interesting, the more that he heard about them. "Yeah, I know the feeling," he said, looking around the library. In fact, the more he heard about the items, the more he wanted to help find them. "Don't you think artifacts like that belong in a museum?" he asked. Personally, Indiana thought that every historical artifact belonged in a museum. The curators and other people were the only ones that knew how to properly take care of them. Otherwise, they would be almost destroyed, their former beauty vanished.
"Well, why haven't you gone to the temple before now?" Indiana asked. If it was him that wanted these artifacts so badly, he would have already gone and at least tried to find the artifact hidden in Anubis's temple.

"In a museum it would be too easy I fear for Anubis to reassemble them and that must not happen," Pegasus said quietly. It was true. If Anubis was brought back that would be.... not worth thinking about.
"Right now the shadow realms that are needed to exist are locked away, locked into a seperate dimension you could say, if he came back the shadow games would return and people would start dieing rapidly," Pegasus explained.
"As to why I've never gone to the temple before, every last person i've spoken to about it, they only know rumours, I know, they don't know for sure if its true or not," Pegasus explained.

"Ah...," said Indiana, readjusting his hat. "Yeah, we don't want that to happen." He wasn't quite sure if he was completely in belief of all of this. He would just have to wait and find out. Of course, Pegasus did have a really serious look in his face, so maybe all this was true after all.
Upon hearing what Pegasus had said, Indiana was immediatly reminded of the Ark. He remembered that thing. And lucky for Marian, he was there to protect her from it. Still with no thank you. "Wow...deja vu," he said, grinning.
"Well, I guess there's nothing either of us can do about it at the time, now that we're stuck in this place," he said, annoyed. "And you have no idea how you got here either?"he asked.

Pegasus looked at him "I know you're finding this hard to believe, and your unsure as to if you can believe me, trust me, its true," Pegasus said quietly.
"And I know for a fact this isn't a normal place, you would probably find how too hard to believe though I'm afraid so I think I will refrain from telling you, yes I know your skeptical of this 'hocus pocus' so I will not overwhelm you with details. Nor do I know how I got here, I just woke up here,"

Indiana looked at Pegasus oddly. Those words were almost the exact words that he had thought in his head. He grinned, thinking that this was some sort of mind trick or something like that. "Alright, so how do I know that you're not making all of this up?" he asked. He was a very skeptical person, but his skepticism often came in handy when dealing with certain people.
Indiana leaned back and shrugged off his brown leather jacket. "Yeah, same here. Last thing I remember was...," he said, thinking back. "Oh...," he said, not wanting to think about it. He, his father and their friends Marcus and Sala had just left the cave that contained the Holy Grail. And his father kept insisting on calling him 'Junior.' He shook his head, then cleared his throat. "I was...just coming home from Egypt," he lied.

Pegasus shrugged "Perhaps if I showed you the existance of one of the Millenium items, the one I possess, as well as the prophecy," he commented. "Just promise you won't tell anyone else about the existance of them," he added on.
He picked up on the thoughts about the holy grail, and how he, his father, and his friends had been leaving that cave. He picked up a hint of irritation about his father calling him 'junior'. He wondered about that storing the knowledge away though

Indiana thought about what Pegasus said for a moment. "Yeah...that might do it," he said. He actually would love to see one of these Millenium items. The same that he felt about every single other historical artifact that practically ever existed. He was always wanting to find more artifacts and when someone asked him to find one for them, he jumped at the chance.
Indiana nodded. "Yeah, I swear. I won't tell anyone," he promised. When Indiana promised something, he would always keep it. At least...he usually did. But he knew that this was a promise that he would definitely keep. Especially since it was about such a powerful object, apparently.
Indiana had dealt with these kinds of things before. He had no reason to be skeptical. But, he didn't want to fall to a place where he believed everything that anyone told him. That would just be pathetic.

Carefully Pegasus shifted his fringe away, revealling the Millenium eye beneath it. "I've had many try to take this from me, but they have never succeeded. I would rather not lose it, it is highly beneficial in finding out those who are telling the truth from those who are lieing," he commented.
After that he carefully opened his work journal, turning the pages carefully until he reached the page where he'd jotted the various prophecies down, both in their hyroglyphic form and in their original form. "The one I find most worrying is this one," he pointed it out. The english rough translation read 'Once the puzzle is no longer broken from beneath the deserts will Anubis be found,'. "That translation is a rough from me, but there is a reason why I worry so much," he commented

Indiana gazed, almost in shock, as he saw the large golden eye in the place of where Pegasus's normal eye should have been. But one thing that Pegasus said caught his attention. "What do you mean by that?," he said. Then, he started to grin. "What, are you saying that you can tell if someone is lying or telling the truth?"he asked. Was there no end to the 'magic' stuff in this place? Of course, magic was one thing that crossed Indiana's mind when he thought about exactly how he got there. The other, of course, was kidnapping.
Indiana watched as Pegasus opened the journal that he had earlier tried to hide from him. What he immediately thought of was his father's Grail diary. That was his whole life. That was all his father ever talked about. Hell, all he ever thought about, even. He looked down at the journal and studied it for a moment. Pegasus's translation wasn't exact, but it was close enough. "And what reason would that be?" he asked.

"The Millenium eye has many properties, I can read a persons mind, which enables me to tell whether or not they're lieing, as well as come and go freely between the shadow realms," Pegasus explained.
"As for my reason for my worry, there is one item known as the Millenium Puzzle, it is shaped like a pyramid. The unknown pharoh destroyed it, breaking it into pieces and sealing it into a box, no one has ever solved it until a young boy called Yugi Motou," Pegasus explained further.
"If this is the puzzle the prophecy refers to, and I believe it is, I haven't finished translating the full text yet... well, things don't look good," Pegasus didn't know why he was telling this to Indiana. Well other then the fact he'd been reading his mind to help him decide.

"Huh...," said Indiana, rubbing the scruff along his chin in thought. This was something that he always did when he was deep in thought. He grinned. "So...if I'm thinking something, you can automatically know what I'm thinking?" he asked. This wasn't something that he found funny, exactly, but it was something that he found embarassing. For himself, not for Pegasus. So, he had heard everything that Indiana was thinking about ...everything?
"Ok...," said Indiana, thinking. He lowered his hand and folded his arms on the table. "Just how old is this kid?" he asked. If he was pretty young, than Indiana could understand Pegasus's nervousness about him having it.

Hearing the age of the boy, Indiana raised his eyebrows. "Fifteen is pretty young to have an artifact like that," said Indiana more to himself than to anyone else. He looked back up at Pegasus when he mentioned the Pharoh's 'sleeping spirit.' "You mean, they actually talk to each other?," he said, laughing. "How is that even possible?"he asked, skeptically.
If there was one thing that Indiana loved, it would be proof. He barely believed anything without having it proven to him. This ought to be interesting. He tried to think of something that he definitely wouldn't know about Indiana. But, he didn't want to think of something that he didn't want anyone to know, either. But as soon as he thought that, practicaly every thought that he didn't want anyone to know, popped into his head. His dad neglecting him when he was a kid, him leaving Marion at the alter, his dad almost dying, where the Grail was, and to top it all off, his dad's name for him: Junior. God, he hated that name.

Pegasus had let his mind focus letting his millenium eye focus picking up the thoughts, oh there was a wide variety, but he wasn't going to be cruel. "I'm judging from the fact you hate being called junior Indiana Jones isn't your true mind correct?" he enquired, keeping his curiousity at bay though and not probing further into the matter.
"And yes the Pharoh and Yugi do talk to each other, more then that, the Pharoh often takes over during card duels," Pegasus said softly.

The grin that had been on Indiana's face just a minute before, slowly slid off of his face when he heard what Pegasus had just said. He cleared his throat and moved his hat farther back onto his head. Ok...so Pegasus was telling the truth. About the eye, at least. There was no way that he could have known about Indiana's real name. But, the question was, should he admit to it, or not? His real name was definitely something that he didn't want spread around. At all!
Indiana hesitated, but after Pegasus had given Indiana his real name, so it was only fair... "Yeah...alright, Indiana isn't my given name, but that's what everyone calls me," he said. He leaned in closer to Pegasus and said," I'd, uh.., appreciate it if you didn't spread that around." He hated the name Junior and nothing anyone would do was going to change that.
"Takes over?" asked Indiana. "What exactly do you mean by that?" He realized that he was asking a lot of questions, but, hey, all this stuff was really new to him.
