He was done watching the duel. Vern slowly took out his duel disk, which he kept in good condition, polishing it every two or three days. Slowly, but a but shakily, he slipped the disk onto his left arm, feeling the weight of it pushing his arm down. The disk glinted in the light, with its amber sphere and completely black blade, where he would put his monsters or set spells or traps in. Reaching down to his side, he took out his deck, putting his Gol'gars into their respective holder inside the sphere. He took a deep breath. Swiftly, he put his deck into the deck holder, and his disk sprang to life: the amber light gave off a faint but warm glow, and luminescent white lines began to show on the surface of the black, slowly revealing line-by-line the monster zones.
Vern stood up, and walked out the door. He recalled seeing another room next to it, with the door ajar. Meekly, the boy walked in. His eyes scanned the room, taking in the details. Like the other room, there were chairs on either side, but no one was there. In the center, was a duel field, and on the other side, there was a robot standing in the duelist zone, a duel disk in hand and active.
"shhh.....Welcome..." it breathed, as if it had not been put to use in a long time. "...to the Duel Academy Entrance Exam!....sshhhh" The robot slowly moved into a ready position, disk already activated, with the number 4000 appearing on its standard ruby-red sphere. It released a peculiar wave that Vern felt, like a gust of wind, and his duel disk suddenly responded. It activated, the amber light glowing brighter now, with the number 4000 appearing in it as well. "ssshh...My turn. DRAW!"
The robot drew a card from the deck, in a wide, sweeping motion. "ssshh....I summon Ghost Gardna in defense position....set 2 cards, turn end....ssshhh" Suddenly on the field a large bluish monster appeared on the field, along with two large-sized face down cards behind it. Vern contemplated his situation for a moment.
"DRAW!" he muttered, lazily moving his hand to his deck, and pulling away, with a card in his fingers. He checked the card. <Mind Trust. perfect.> he thought, as his eyes scanned the rest of his hand: Alien Ammonite, Alien Warrior, Ancient Forest, Swords of revealing Light, and Alien Shocktrooper. "I summon Alien Shocktrooper in attack position." A large, reptilian centaur kind of monster appeared in front of Vern, arching its back with a battle cry. "ssshh...activate trap! Spellbinding Circle!" the robot responded.
Vern was taken aback by this. <What...I though this was a standard Security Deck...> he thought. "Fine," Vern replied, "I activate Swords of Revealing Light!...turn end." Three white sword-like figures appeared above the robot, and came down in a triangle shape around the robot's field.
"ssshh...Draw..." The robot repeated his draw habit. After a moment of checking his cards, he finally looked up and spoke, "set one card, turn end....sssshhhhh"
Vern smiled. "Draw!" He drew a Planet Pollutant Virus. <Soon, this will be over.> he thought. "I set one card." "ssshhh....continue...." the robot replied. "Next," Vern continued "I activate the field spell, Ancient Forest!" Suddenly, the whole field changed and became a lush, green forest. "...ssshh...chain! Mystical Space Typhoon!" A sudden tempest rose out of thin air. Its countenance seemed quite disconcerting. "sssh...I choose to destroy Ancient Forest!" <Tch...> Vern thought to himself, as the tempest rose and encompassed the whole field. Ancient Forest was ejected from the field card zone, which Vern caught and placed in the graveyard slot. Vern paused, seeing the flaw in his strategy already. "I summon Alien Warrior in attack position! turn end."
"ssshhh...draw..." the robot drew a card...needless to say. "I summon Krebons in attack position...ssshhh"
"not so fast!" Vern called, "I respond! trap open! Planet Pollutant Virus! I tribute my alien warrior, and destroy all your face-up monsters!" Suddenly, from the now 'opened' trap card, a flood of alien-like slimeballs flew onto the robot's field. It swarmed all around his monsters, destroying them. "shhs.....turn end."
"draw!" Vern smiled. He drew power filter. "I summon alien ammonite in attack position! With ammonite's effect, i special summon alien shocktrooper from my grave! synchro summon! Come forth and Invade! Cosmic Fortress Gol'gar!" A large, massive ship-like monster arose, with tentacles at its side. "I activate Gol'gar's effect! i return my swords, and your spellbinding circle back to our hands, and put two a counters on alien warrior! Then i remove those two to destroy your set card!" The tentacles from Gol'gar moved and whipped the said cards back to Vern and the robot's hand. Then, a sharp laser shot out from it and destroyed the robot's set card. It was a Double Summon. <A bluff, eh?....he must've had it there for a reason, though.> Vern felt a bit troubled by this. "continuing on," Vern said "My Alien shocktrooper attakcs directly for 1900." The reptilian monster charged at the robot, and slashed it. 1900 points were deducted from the robot's count. "and Finally," Vern concluded " Cosmic Fortress Gol'gar attacks directly to end this! Annihilate!!"
The large fortress-like monster turned its attention to the robot. It started charging a beam, and launched it at the robot. It become engulfed in a stream of bright light, its life points dropping down to 0. The robot's duel disk let out a steam of air. Vern sighed. He won.
But nothing happened. Nothing. Vern put his cards back into his duel disk, and looked around. He didn't seem to see anyone. <Hm...was that, then just a practice duel!?> This thought scared Vern a little, as the duel was difficult to win.
