i_like_red: (Explaining Something)
Firstly, thank you to everyone who's been visiting or sending your well wishes, it's been really appreciated.

I've got somewhat good news. After being seen by Souha, they feel that my power and Yubel will repair and heal, but both are very damaged, so it's going to take a long time, but for now, I'm going to focus on the fact that it will fully heal eventually.

Physically, I'm still doing a lot of healing there too. They're hoping I can be out of the hospital by the end of the week, but I'll be on strict bed-rest for at least another week, then after that, they'll assess me again and if the injury to my back has healed enough, I'll be starting some physiotherapy.
Walking hurts a LOT right now because of the back injury, I kind of hobble around like an old lady. They don't want me moving too much though in case I bust open the stitches, so I only really move around if I need the bathroom or something and even then Asuka or one of the nurses has to help me.
I gotta admit, that's one of the hardest and most frustrating things about all this right now. Not being able to move much on my own.

Chances are the injury will leave a lasting scar, even after it's healed, but it'll be my only really significant scar in what is many years of dealing with dangerous supernatural stuff, so I think I should count myself lucky there.

Thankfully I know SAI is in good hands while I'm not there, though I'm sure I'll still be able to answer e-mails and manage a few things from my laptop while laid up, but otherwise, my staff is currently fully in charge of things for now, including keeping the New Horizons Project going.
A few days ago it was mine and Asuka's 4th wedding anniversary. Kinda amazing it's been 4 years already, it's gone by really fast!!
We were too busy to do anything on the actual day, so we're going out later today to celebrate it!
So. Haven't updated here in a while. Things got a bit crazy. Really crazy actually, but things are starting to improve now.

Well, January was mostly a good month. Spent a week in Germany for a small tournament and the spirit foundation was as busy as ever the rest of the time. Ruka and I spent time checking up on spirit communities, seeing how things were going as well as doing some talks, lots of positive things!!

Then at the beginning of February things sort of went downhill.
Asuka came down with the flu, then I got it only a few days later. It hit us pretty hard too. I can barely even remember that week, I was so out of it and what I can remember I am never sure if it was real or not. Our high fevers pretty much made us lose any sense of reality for a while, I think. Ruka was amazing though, as well as Yubel, Winged Kuriboh and the other spirits, who all helped Ruka look after us when we were at our worst.
By the second week, we were getting better, but slowly. We still felt very under the weather. It was taking some shaking off.
But then Ruka came down with it last weekend and well, long story short, we had to call an ambulance. She complained about having sharp pains in her chest at first and she eventually started having trouble breathing, she became distressed from it which made it worse.
The hospital told us that she had pneumonia which had arisen as a complication from the flu virus.

While her fever was at it's worst, she was unconscious for two days, but after her fever broke and she woke up, she steadily began making progress thanks to the care the hospital gave her. Today, a week later, they have allowed her to come home, but with medication and orders for strict bed rest for the next two weeks. If she has problems breathing again, we have to rush her back, but she seems to be doing okay. She's tired and still very ill but the hospital has said they expect her to make a full recovery.

Asuka and I are... better, not great but better. We're still feeling a bit under the weather and generally run down, so for the next couple of weeks Asuka is off work and I have no pro-duels and I'm only going to be occasionally popping into the Spirit Foundation to see how things are. This way we can fully recover and at least one of us will be at home with Ruka.

That said, all this has made me really behind on things, especially with any spirit foundation work and on-going issues ect. so if anything needs my attention, let me know, even if I can't look into it or do anything straight away. Minor issues can be dealt with through the foundations volunteers and other staff, who are thankfully staying on top of things a bit better than I am at the moment.
Did anyone else get a letter recently about some kind of card hunting game? It sounds like it could be a lot of fun, so I sent the form off to confirm my participation today!
I wonder how we find these duelists with these "Number" cards though. Hm, I guess we just have to duel who we can and they'll use the card if they have it.

I'm really looking forward to this!

Oh, I forgot to mention my birthday that was a few weekends back. Asuka and I ended up going on a spontaneous weekend trip to the beach to celebrate it. I'm really glad we did, I think it was good for the both of us. We haven't had much of a chance to go on a trip together for a while.
*A few days after the defeat of the Ark Cradle, the city was gradually getting back to normal, as people returned to their homes and jobs. But despite this, Juudai couldn't help but think back to the duel he had within the Ark Cradle, along side Aki, and the information he discovered during it, that turned what had been something he idly wondered on for a while, into a sudden possible reality.
Although a difficult situation, he figured letting Asuka know about it as soon as possible would be the best thing to do.

He'd been out most of the day, just answering any queries from people and spirits about the Ark cradle through the Spirit Foundation and settling any fears and had since returned home. Taking a deep breath and breathing out a sigh, he walks into their apartment.*


Hey. I'm home.
Well, at least watching that duel took my mind off things for a little while at least.

Now I just have to figure out why I keep having this nightmare over and over again. It seems so real everytime, even though I know it's not.
Urgh... I wouldn't feel so bad if it wasn't waking Asuka up everytime too.

How this guy still manages to find ways to taunt us from even beyond the grave I have no idea.
*At his apartment in Sakana, Juudai is sleeping soundly in his bed. As he turns over in his sleep, he stirs slightly and opens his eyes a little, instantly catching the sight of a figure stood at the end of the bed. Groggily sitting up, he tries to see exactly who it is, thinking it was probably just Asuka. But as soon as his eyes get used to the dark and the figure becomes slightly more clear, his eyes open wide with shock.
Divine is stood there, smirking sadistically and pointing a gun up towards him. Before Juudai has the time to even react...
... BANG!

And with a loud yell, Juudai wakes up, instantly leaping out of his bed in panic.*
Haaa, guess everything is back to normal again! Anubis is gone and GHOULs shouldn't be bothering anyone anymore.

Finals and stuff are coming up soon.... I'm kinda glad I don't have too many to do myself. I really hate finals. I'm not sure whether I'll go back to the college next year to do something or just concentrate more on the Pro-League... and working with the spirits and people in the city some more. You get to learn a lot about the spirits that live here and the worlds they came from, it's really interesting!

Hmmm, Asuka and I were gonna go on a holiday this summer too, guess we got a little sidetracked from that, huh? Haha, well, I guess there's still time to sort that out and go after finals are done with!
Haaa, yesterday was kinda interesting! Asuka and I got into a bit of a duel with some of those duel gang members and they were really strong duelists too! It was looking kinda bad for us at one point, but we beat them together!! It was quite a fun challenge in the end, haha!
I mean what I say when I said they were both strong too. Duelists with talent like that really don't need to be in gangs to get noticed, they'd be able to do that on their own.

I took Asuka ice-skating today! I lost count of the amount of times I fell over... and the amount of bruises I got from it! Heheh...
It was a fun day out though and Asuka seemed to enjoy it, so it was worth the pain!


Hmm, as for the person who attacked the park, they've been a little quiet lately, a little too quiet. I've been concentrating on keeping watch in that area, but they haven't shown up yet.
I decided to actually get up early this morning!! I usually don't on a Sunday, I like to sleep in, but I wanted to get an early start on getting some Christmas decorations up before Asuka woke up so I could surprise her with them when she did!! (Haa, I probably wouldn't of gotten up if it wasn't for Pharaoh, he's the best alarm clock I have!)
I think they look pretty awesome! This Christmas is gonna be awesome, I just know it!

Hmm, I decided to do this review meme thing again! I remember doing it last year and it was an interesting way to look back at the year, so I'm doing it this year too!!

Review meme )
*Juudai couldn't ask for a more better night than this. Although a chill was in the air, the Autumn night's sky was clear and the moon was shining brightly over the city.
Juudai had taken Asuka out to one of the restaurants in the city to celebrate their up and coming 2nd year dating anniversary. Afterwards, he took her a little out of the city on his D-Wheel, only briefly mentioning previously before the restaurant that he was going to take her somewhere else, but he refused to say where. It was a surprise!

That question is soon answered as he pulls over on the road and parks his D-Wheel. Beside them is the beach, a rather deserted beach due to the time of year.
Juudai takes his helmet off and watches the ocean's small waves in the distance for a few seconds before looking over to Asuka and smiling*
HALLOWEEN!!
Haah, it's been kind of a boring day though and I don't have anything really planned for today which is sort of a let down, but I've been too busy to really plan anything. I dunno, maybe I can convince Asuka to watch some scary movies with me later or something!! :D

Haa, things have been so busy lately, between college and working in-between that! Haa, my classes gave me loads of work for this week too, I keep telling myself to work on it, but I keep putting it off or getting distracted. Guess I know what I'll be doing most of the weekend, urgh.

Oh, at the weekend, Asuka and I went round to my parents house so they could meet her and stuff.
They got the baby pictures out, just like I thought they would...
At least on the up-side, they really seemed to like her!

...I'm still at 3 medals for this tournament.
Despite how busy this week is looking, what with college and working during the times I'm NOT at college, I feel really really good!! I... actually went and met my parents on Sunday. Things went pretty well... better than I thought. We agreed to try and keep more in contact now.
I told them some things and it really lifted a lot off my mind I think.

Haa, Asuka, they really want to meet you! They kept asking me so many questions! They want to invite us over for dinner sometime, haha!

Need to make some time for tournament duels! I'm gonna try my best to get up to 10 medals!!

......what did I just do.....



...Asuka... I'm so sorry. I'm so so sorry...
*Hey Asuka! If you go into the room you share with Juudai, you'll happen to see a white envelope on the bed, which has your name written on it. The handwriting you will recognize as Juudai's. There's also a single red rose laying on the top of said envelope.
Want to look inside it?*
Last night's duel was really tough... and I lost but... I guess in the end it doesn't completely matter, I know where to go, and at least she's gonna be safe for now.

Private )
So um... I went for a walk last night and something happened.
Manjoume. Asuka. I'm sorry I didn't come home or tell you where I am until now, but something major has come up and it means I could be in a lot of danger, and in turn it's... well... pretty much an end of the world thing...
...so I'm laying low with Jin until we can figure out how to deal with this.

I'm safe, for now and you can contact me over the journals, PDA or my cellphone if you need to.

Manjoume. While I'm here, you carry on hunting down the Dark Synchros and destorying them. Johan, Kenzan and Shou can help you.
