A/N: Hello everyone, so I've got major anxiety right now and I needed to do some writing to get my mind off things! I noticed that I haven't updated this story in awhile!

This is going to be based some time after kingdom hearts 2 and before kingdom hearts 3, I know it's not released yet! So that's why I said before! ^_^ Anyways! I hope you all enjoy! Please review and tell me what you think! :)

Disclaimer: Kingdom Hearts does NOT belong to me.


The Dinner That Was Never Eaten.

"I'm so glad you're back, Sora...It's not the same around here without you." Kairi said, as she walked hand in hand with the spiky keyblade hero.

Sora and Riku have returned to Destiny Islands from the world that never was along with Donald, Goofy, and King Mickey not to long ago.

A faint red color was visible on Sora's cheeks when he felt Kairi's petite hand in his gloved one.

"M-me too, Kai...I..I really missed you..." Sora replied, he stopped walking to look down at her.

She looked up at him with her big blue eyes, the wind blowing through her Crimson tresses, the sun radiating off her pale skin.

"And...looking at you now..." Sora continued, daring to step closer to her. "Makes me realize...how painful it was to be away from you..."

Kairi gasped softly as Sora cupped her face in his gloved hands.

"Sora..." She could only whisper, as the boy drew closer.

Sora pressed his forehead against Kairi's gently, his lips were only inches away from hers.

"Kairi...I..I Lo-"

"SORA!"

Sora quickly broke away from Kairi and looked up in horror to his own mother storming towards them with a container in her hands.

"M-mom!?" Sora stuttered, realizing that he had a LOT of explaining to do.

"Where have you been, young man!? Do you know how worried I was!?" Sora's mom shouted as she thrusts the container into her son's hands."You just don't go running off in the middle of the night and disappear for a year! Were you kidnapped!? Did you run away!?"

"N-n-no mom! You see, it's kind of a long story! I'll explain later!" Sora replied, as he examined the container that he was now holding. "Uh...what's in here!?"

"The dinner that I have made for us the night you went missing!"

Sora and Kairi looked at his mom dumbfounded.

"Mom! Y-you kept it all this time!?" Sora asked in disbelief.

"Why of course! As punishment for leaving without my permission, you are to eat every bite of that meal and are forbidden to eat any other meal until you do!"

Kairi and Sora both shared a frantic look.

"But...but mom," Sora said, returning his gaze back to his mother. "This food is old! I'll get sick!"

"Well, you better get started on it now, before it gets any older!"
