(-) Silvex POV
To trust or not to trust, that is the question. I thought. Something inside of felt like this man was connected, somehow, to my past. That being a good thing or a bad thing is left unknown. This whole scenario is suspicious. I noted. He might not tell me all of my past or, even worse, tell me a fake past. I suddenly realized something, though. I have no chose in the matter. This man seems to know a lot more about whats going on. Even if the reason for that is that he is behind all of this, I don't know that for sure. Like Namine said, Organization 13 might not be such a bad group. Misguided, maybe, but not overall bad.
Feeling like I was agreeing to be blindfolded, I finally replied to the man, "Fine. I'll come." I couldn't see his face, but I swore that he smiled the faintest of smiles. He is one of the.. creepiest people I've ever met. I thought. That's really not saying anything, though, because I've met very few people.
I noticed that he opened a dark portal thing, just like the one Axel, other hooded mystery dude, and Namine all used. Without waiting for him, I jumped in.
Believe me, you NEVER want to use it. It felt like I was standing in a bucket of ice-cold water on the sun.
After what seemed like an eternity, even though it had probably only been second or two, I exited the portal. I was in a hallway-corridor?- that was completely white. Everything was completely quiet. It felt weird, like I could get lost in a maze of hallways here. I stepped aside, remembering the man behind me, and watched as he effortlessly exited the portal and closed it. He than started to walk, so I was forced to follow him.
He finally got to a room. He entered it, and I slowly followed.
Suddenly I was frozen on the spot, unable to move. I couldn't even move my head, though I started to hear voices. However, these voices sounded like they were in my head.
"Make him disappear? He just needs more time!"
"It's an order. Why are you so upset? Aren't you the one who is supposed to execute, without mercy, those who left the Organization?"
"He's not the kind that would leave everything behind! He just hasn't come back yet, that's all!"
"It will be an execution if he doesn't come back. If you don't follow orders, you'll be the one executed instead."
I heard a thunk, like something hit steel. After that, I also heard someone preparing to make a big attack.
"Turning me into a Dusk, eh.. Alright, I'll do it, I'll do it!"
Suddenly, I could move again. I blinked, and everything was back to normal. I wasn't even sure that any time had passed. I hurriedly walked into the room, trying to focus on what was about to happen.
The room was huge. There were seats-thrones, maybe?- that varied in size. To my surprise, only two seats were filled. I figured that the leader wanted as few people to know about this as possible.
"Welcome, Silvex." I gazed coolly up at the speaker, who didn't have his hood covering his face.
He had orange eyes that seemed to be able to pierce even solid steel. His silver hair was a bit spiky and messy. As soon as I saw him I hated him. He was so unnervingly familiar, but I couldn't place where I'd met him.
I looked at him, waiting for him to continue. "I'm Xemnas." He said it so slowly that I knew he thought I was dumb. That name.. Xemnas! Everything about him is so familiar! Paired with my natural hatred of him, he has something to do with my past, and not something good, either.
"You don't have to act like I'm an idiot, you know. I can understand you." I replied.
"Well, OK than. About you joining the Organization..."
"No." I said simply.
"No?" Xemnas quietly asked.
"No." I repeated. "I don't know where you got your idea, but I'm not joining your Organization. I'll help your goals, of course, but I will not join Organization XIII."
Everyone was quiet for a second. "What if you.. spy for us?" Xemnas suggested.
I thought for a second. He's actually compromising? Um, wow. Hmm... spying.. that actually sounds appealing. "Spy on whom, to be exact?"
"A kid named Sora."
Sora?.. As in Roxas's original person? That same Sora? "Sora?" I asked, pretending to sound confused. "Who's Sora?"
"An annoying kid with the potential to ruin our plans." The other hooded man replied.
"I see." I replied. I didn't ask for the plans because I knew that I would never hear them. Besides, I truly didn't care that much. "Now that we settled on something, will you please let me go?"
Nobody replied, but a portal opened up. "Thanks." With that, I went through the portal. After the usual freezing heat, I arrived in an alleyway. The portal soon closed behind me. I was about to think about what the hell just happened, but I suddenly heard footsteps.
We walked into an alleyway after getting lost in the town. To my surprise, someone was there, seemingly looking for something. Donald and Goofy stopped behind me. "Hello?" I called. The girl turned around, surprised.
"Oh, hi." She said. I thought I saw recognition in her eyes, but as soon as I saw it, it went away. Did I actually see that?
"Who are you?" Donald asked.
"Silvex." The green-haired girl replied, sounding just a bit annoyed. Silvex? I thought. Weird name. "Who are you?" She asked.
"I'm Sora, and these are my friends Donald and Goofy." I gestured to the two, respectively.
"Huh, Sora.." Silvex trailed off. "Well, nice to meet you. I'd better be going.." She was about to leave when I decided to ask her about Kairi and Riku.
"Hey, Silvex, have you by any chance met someone by the name of Riku or Kairi?"
"Riku and Kairi.." I murmured. Those names rung a bell in my mind. Suddenly, out of nowhere, two images appeared in her mind.
The first one was a girl. She had red hair and blue eyes, as well as a pink outfit.
The second image was a boy with blue-silver hair.
Are.. those them? The people called Riku and Kairi? If so, how.. how do I know them? Are they connected to my past?
I'm told I'm a Nobody.. but I feel emotions. I know people I can't remember. I am so accepting of events that should scare the fake emotion out of me.
...Who..who am I?
"I...Their names sound familiar." I said hesitantly. I felt enormously guilty when I saw Sora's hopeful expression. "..Tell me, does one of them have red hair, and the other silver-blue hair?"
"Y-yeah." Sora replied, hope shining in his eyes. I saw Donald and Goofy share a look of doubt.
"Well.. I think I've met them.. but, well.. it's complicated. I've probably met them but the thing is.. I don't remember them. All I remember is their looks."
Sora looked crushed, Goofy looked disappointed, and Donald looked plain MAD.
"What do you mean you can't remember?" Donald demanded. "Either you haven't met them or you have! Simple as that!"
That made ME mad. "Look." I said coldly. "I'm just telling you the truth here. If I were you, I'd be glad for anything, since you have asleep since who-knows-how-long!" Did I really say that?
