"Maximillion Pegasus isn't my true name either, but like you...I'd rather that not be common knowledge," Pegasus said softly. He hated Pegasus J. Crawford. He'd changed his name to break away from his fathers and his whole family life of crime.
"Well lets just say Yugi's not gone through puberty and is rather well, on the short side for his age, whereas Yami or Atem is taller and a lot more confident, they physically change," Pegasus said.

Indiana smiled. "I'll keep yours if you keep mine," he said. He didn't have a problem with Pegasus, so as long as he kept Indiana's real name a secret, Indiana would keep Pegasus's real name a secret. The do unto others rule. Indiana often followed it...for the most part.
Indiana raised his eyebrows when he heard just exactly the answer to his question. So, the Pharoh pretty much took over this kid's body? And changed it, even? That was something he had certainly never heard of at all.
Indiana was about to say something in response to what he had just heard, but he noticed the desk lamp that was sitting on the table in front of them. There was something just not quite right about it. Almost like it didn't really belong there.
Indiana reached up and pulled on the lamp. A gigantic hole opened right in front of where he was sitting. And it wasn't just a hole, but it was a slide! His chair fell from beneath him and he slid down the slide. "Whoa!" he yelled as he fell down the slide. He landed on the hard bottom with a crunch. He had laned on his arm.

Pegasus nodded. That was why he had given the hint that indeed Maximillion Pegasus wasn't his true name. They were on a fair playing field again. He wasn't exactly card dueling now. Outside of duels Pegasus was generally a rather fair man.
He jumped as Indiana disappeared suddenly down a slide that had opened, grabbing his pen and work journal stepping away from the edge of the hole. "Indiana?" he called, nervously. Who knew what was down there afterall.

Indiana groaned as he tried to get up from hard stone floor. Extreme pain shot through his left arm. The left arm...why was it always the left? He pushed himself up and leaned against the wall. He was breathing hard and he closed his eyes. Since he had gotten up from the floor, the pain in his arm had almost doubled.
"Yeah!" Indiana was able to yell out towards the hole that was still open above him. He looked down and around him and saw several skeletons of people who had probably found this place, but couldn't get out of it.
Indiana reached down with his right arm and yanked an arm off of one of the skeletons. He wrapped what was left of it's shirt around the arm. He took out his matches and lit the shirt on fire, creating a torch.
Indiana raised the torch to the wall and saw a form of Egyptian heiroglyphs. "Hey, Pegasus!" he yelled to the hole."You might want to come down here and help me translate these heiroglyphs!"

Pegasus wasn't planning on joining Indiana...at least not till he heard Egyptian Hieroglyphs. That soon made up his mind. He ensured his work journal was securely fastened slipping his pen into an inside pocket along with his beloved cards and the afore mentioned inside pocket was zipped securely fastened.
Then he followed Indiana down the slide. He came to rest at the bottom a bit more elegantly then Indiana had but still. He slowly stood up dusting himself off slightly before he walked over to join Indiana.
About half way there he froze at an insistant nagging sensastion, a tingling from his millenium eye. Slowly he closed his normal eye looking around himself with just his millenium eye. Then he saw it, the doorway with the blue pyramid over it. He frowned as he took a half step towards it subconciously, then it blurred out.
He could hear the whisper of an Egyptian prayer to Anubis though. Still echoing in his mind. He opened his normal eye looking over to Indiana to see if he'd noticed that.

Indiana was relieved that Pegasus had decided to come down and join him. He had started to pant heavily from the pain in his arm. He reached into his side bag and pulled out his archaeologist brush. "A great battle..." he said, reading the heiroglyphs. Most of the heiroglyphs on the wall were in a form that Indiana had never seen before.
Indiana turned around and saw Pegasus just staring at him. "What..?" he asked, unsure. He pulled his arm closer to him, trying to make the pain stop.
Indiana shook his head and said," Could you come here for a second? I can't seem to translate these heiroglyphs, I've never seen the kind before." As much as he hated saying that, he wanted to find out what the heiroglyphs said even more.

Pegasus slowly walked over, jumping as a stone landed behind him, the egyptian chant growing deeper and more menacing. He couldn't help but to wonder if indiana could hear it or if it was just him. He shivered slightly.
Something was their watching him, he could feel the eyes, and the stone cold. Then suddenly it was their, that blinding build up of pain in his millenium eye before suddenly it wasn't there.
Nor was that oppressive feeling. The eyes had gone. It didn't stop him jumping though when a blue bladed dagger in the Kris shape carved out of stone fell to the ground behind him.

Indiana spun around at the sound of something dropping almost behind him. He saw a stone behind Pegasus. Ah, ok, a stone just fell, no big deal. He'd been in these sort of situations before, so he was used to things dropping, booby traps, everything like that. In fact, it was almost an everyday occurance in his life.
Indiana was about to turn back to the wall when he saw the look on Pegasus's face. There was a look of pure terror on his face. He walked towards him, slightly. "You ok?" he asked him.
Indiana's eyes narrowed when he saw a stone dagger randomly appeared behind Pegasus. But, suddenly, it just dropped to the ground. He carefully grabbed Pegasus's arm and pulled him away from the dagger. "What just happened?" he asked him.

Indiana looked at Pegasus, unsurely. Was this a joke? He shook his head. "No...I didn't hear anything," he said. He raised the torch higher to look around the room. Hmmm....there were more bodies than he thought there were. In fact, the floor was covered with them. He raised his eyebrows in surprise. He looked around the room and saw no hint of a booby trap or anything else that could have killed these people...so what did?
Indiana watched Pegasus turn and look at the dagger. With surprise, he saw his skin turn even paler than it was already. "Hey," he said, tapping him on the shoulder,"What's wrong?" He looked from Pegasus to the dagger and back.

"That is not good," Pegasus muttered warily approaching the dagger. "If this is what I think it is..." he tailed off slightly seeing a pair of glowing red eyes in the shadows then they were again gone.
He slowly picked the dagger up bringing it back so he had some light to examine it by. He let his millenium eye focus on it seeing the hieroglyphs on it.
He jumped as he heard a voice that seemt to echo around the room "The dagger of Fate has now been moved so the eye cannot be blinded, taken from the desert tomb the bounds of the jackal god are loosening," that only confirmed his fears. And he'd recognised the voice, it was the Pharohs.

"What?"asked Indiana, unsure. Whatever Pegasus had just realized had made him incredibly uneasy. But Indiana had no idea what it was. Maybe he didn't want to know. He brought the torch closer to the knife so that Pegasus could get what it was saying. His curiosity was spurting almost by the second.
Hearing a voice from nowhere, Indiana raised the torch and looked around. He saw no one new...at all. But he listened carefully to what the voice had said. So, apparently, the seal on Anubis's tomb had been taken off or at least loosened. That couldn't be good.
Suddenly, he heard the sound of cracking rock above their heads. With his good arm, he grabbed the dagger and shoved it in his side bag. He tossed the torch aside and pulled out his whip. There was a metal bar where the ceiling used to be. He flicked his whip up to the bar and it wrapped around it. He quickly grabbed Pegasus and began climbing the whip.

Pegasus nodded his thanks to Indiana. Once they were on firm ground though he jumped as he spotted something that had been stolen from his own home. To any one it would just be a lump of sandstone with marks on it. Pegasus had recognised it on sight though.
It was flat, like a small tablet. It was what was on the otherside that made it so interesting to him.

Indiana was shocked to see Pegasus nod at him. Was that actually a thank you he was getting? He couldn't believe it! He had never gotten that much from anyone that he had ever saved before in his life! Not even his own father!
Indiana shook his head, realizing that he was slowly slipping down the whip. After all, he was holding onto the whip with his bad arm. He was no doctor or anything, but he was almost positive that he had broken his arm. The only time that he had ever felt anything that painful was when he had broken his leg when he was a spy for England during WWI.
Indiana pulled himself up and collapsed onto the floor, panting. He looked up when he realized that Pegasus was moving towards something. He pulled himself up from the floor, gripping his arm and walked towards him. "What's that?"

Pegasus carefully picked it up turning it over. "Something that was stolen from my house," he said softly. "Something i was half way through working out the translation of when it was stolen," he added on. "By the way, thank you," he said it properly.
Pegasus was sincerely thankful for what Indiana had done. He didn't have to afterall. He could quite easily have left him to die but he hadn't. He found the atmosphere less opressive right now.
