As the duel between Joey and Mai continues, she tells her former friends what happend to her...
After Battle City, Mai kept having dreams that Marik trapped her in her own mind again and that Yugi and Joey didn't seem to care! Later on in the flashbacks, Mai is seen running down this alley where it is raining because she is afraid that her nightmares would come true. She slumps down beside a wall and begins to cry. Then, Varon finds her and tells her that he will protect her from now on.
Then, both of them return to Varon's "head-quarters" where the leader puts that dreadful Oracle symbol on her forehead.
Mai then tells Joey to make his move.
