Disclaimer - I do not own Kingdom Hearts.
This used to be called A Kingdom Hearts Story ... and it was horrible, I wrote this story back when I first started writing for fanfiction and I was the worst at grammar back then, so I finally decided to go over it and redo it ... and hopefully it's better this time around! lol
It was cold and dark outside, but two young boys were still out, chasing and tackling each other, having a great time.
The oldest boy, who was eleven with silver hair almost down to his shoulders and big aqua colored eyes tackled his best friend, pinning him to the ground.
"No fair, Riku!" The younger boy whined, pouting.
He always hated losing to his best friend.
The younger boy was only a year younger than his friend, and he had spiky, brown hair and big, ocean blue eyes.
Riku chuckled, shaking his head slightly in amusement. He got up off of his friend and was about to say something, when something caught his eye.
His aqua colored eyes widened in awe.
"Sora, look!" He said, pointing at what caught his attention.
Sora stood up and looked at the spot his friend was pointing to, his mouth dropping open in amazement.
Thousands of shooting stars were shooting across the sky. The two boys had never witnessed something like this before … I mean sure they saw a shooting star once in a while, but never so many at a time like this. It was such a rare, amazing sight for the two young friends.
Sora's little face scrunched up in confusion and a hint of fear. He could swear one of the shooting stars was coming right at them … Were they supposed to do that? He thought shooting stars were just supposed to shoot across the sky and then disappear.
"R-Riku?" He asked, his voice slightly shaky as he turned to his best friend.
His friend seemed to be thinking along the same lines, because he was staring at the shooting star Sora was afraid was coming at them with a hint of confusion and fear.
"It's gonna hit us!" He cried out in horror.
Both boys shut their eyes tightly and braced themselves for the impact …
But it never came.
All they heard was a loud splashing sound.
Their eyes flew open and they gazed at each other with wary, but curious gazes.
They made a silent agreement and ran to the shore.
They stopped in horror a few feet away from the ocean when they saw something in middle of the ocean, struggling to stay above surface and a young girl's voice crying out,
"Help! Please somebody help us!"
The two young boys didn't hesitate to run and jump in the ocean and swim to the drowning girl.
When they got closer they noticed that the girl had another girl in one of her arms that was unconscious, and the girl was trying desperately to keep the girl above the surface.
When she saw the two boys swim over to her, she held out the girl to them.
"Take her first! She's most important! I won't be saved, until I know she is safe!" She cried out desperately.
Sora decided to be the one to take the unconscious girl from the other girl's arm and started swimming her to shore.
"Grab on to me!" Riku instructed the girl and she did as she was told, and Riku swam her to shore.
They met Sora and the unconscious girl on shore, collapsing and coughing.
The girl immediately jumped to her feet, running to the unconscious girl, dropping back down on her knees and bringing the girl back in her arms.
"Namine!" The girl cried out, shaking the unconscious girl's body desperately trying to wake her.
"Nami, please wake up!" Tears were falling down her already wet cheeks.
"Excuse me?" Riku asked carefully.
The girl looked at him startled, like him and his friend didn't just save her and her friend. She held the girl in her arms tighter to her body and just stared at him with unblinking eyes.
Riku and Sora were getting uncomfortable by her gaze.
"What just happened?" Sora asked quietly.
"How did you get here? Why and how were you guys in that shooting star?" Riku asked.
The girl just glared and snapped at them, "That's none of your business!"
Sora stepped back taken aback by her tone of voice and also a bit in fear.
Riku glared back at the girl. He couldn't believe she was being so ungrateful to them after they just saved her and her friend from drowning.
"What's your problem? We just freaking saved your lives and you are being so rude, and ungrateful to us!"
Her face softened at that and she looked down at the girl in her arms.
"I'm sorry … I'm just really worried about my sister … and I'm very overprotective of her … I don't know how we ended up in that light thing … or how we got here … all I know is that we wanted to get far away from that place ..." She explained so softly the two boys had to strain to hear her.
Sora bent down to the two girls and touched the girl's shoulder, his beautiful ocean orbs filled with concern and compassion.
"It's alright we understand … I'll take you to my house and ask my mom if you and your sister can stay there, ok?" He offered softly.
The girl smiled slightly and nodded.
Sora smiled and helped the girl up.
Sora and Riku walked on either side of the girl, showing her the way to Sora's house.
"Thank you for saving us, but more importantly Namine." She said, her voice devoid of emotion.
Riku waved it off.
"It's no problem … We're not the kind of people who are willing to just let people die."
"Hey, we never got your name? I'm Sora and my buddy here is Riku!" Sora told the girl.
"I'm Kairi." She answered simply, shrugging her shoulders as if it didn't really matter.
He didn't really get this girl … not at all.
They spent the rest of the walk in silence.
"We're here!" Sora announced loudly as they reached a medium sized house and ran in.
Riku rolled his eyes and followed his friend into the house.
Kairi just studied the house with blinking eyes, holding the girl even more tighter against her chest, before going in as well.
