(Two men standing kissing... the two men held apart by unknown men... the two men, dead at my feet. Blood pouring out of their necks... I look at my blood, covered hands. A dagger in one hand.)
He woke up from his nightmare. Well, it wasn't so much of a nightmare than a memory. A horrible memory. His body was covered in cold sweat. It was the fifth time this week he had had that same dream. Heshrugged away the unease in his stomach, and headed for a shower.
For this young boy the shower was release from all his troubles, like they were been washed away. Silver hair stuck to the boys face, and shampoo water ran down his smooth back. He finished his shower and started to get dress for the day.
Considering the boys past, he was doing pretty well for a 15-year-old orphan. He was in a gang that all other gangs feared. He was a key member in the organized group. He had speed and strength, which was needed in his line of work. He was an assassin. He really hated killing people, even though he knew about thirty different ways.
He slowly made is way to the gang's hideout. He was greeted with a lot of nasty glares.
"Yo." The silver haired boy, held his hand up to meet another member's hand. But no hand meet, his. He lowered his hand. "What's up?"
"You're what's up, Riku." Replied the most, scariest looking in the group. The leader.
"What do you mean, Ryo?"
"We've found a few things out about you." Ryo walked closer to Riku and grabbed his shirt. Riku didn't flinch. "That you have been lying to us."
"Why would I lie to you?"
Ryo spat on the ground. "You lied to us. You told us you were straight, but your not. Your gay."
Riku's eyes had widened slightly. "I am not. How dare you say that!"
"Don't lie." Ryo nodded his head at the rest of the group. Two of them came up to Riku and grabbed hold of Riku. The silver haired boy tried to struggle but his effort was pointless. "Yuki saw you, checking out some guy. So we searched your apartment last night." Riku eyes widened further. 'So that was why my house was a mess. Damnit.'
"We found a lot of evidence to prove that you are... gay." Ryo spat at Riku feet. "Your kind, make me sick." Ryo reached into his pocket and pulled out a switchblade.
"What the hell? I'm not gay, I swear. If I was gay, would I have help you kill that gay couple. Would I have killed them both with my own hands? Would I have gone it if I was gay?" Riku was desperate, but he tried to keep that out of his voice.
"Yes, you would have. Because you did." Ryo glared at the younger boy. "I guess I have to thank you for that. Less scum on this planet." Ryo opened the switchblade and walked closer to Riku. The silver haired youth tried to struggled. But still it was pointless. He closed his eyes and waited for the attack.
He stood there with his eyes firmly closed. The grip on his arms had left him and sounds of fighting could be heard. Slowly Riku opened one eye then another. A brunette boy about his age was pointing two handguns at the leader, Ryo, and at one of the other member that were still around. Everyone else seemed to have run away.
"Leave now!" The brunette's voice was gentle but it was commanding. The rest of the gang ran in fear, even they didn't have guns. The brunette boy turned around and smiled at Riku. The brunette's blue eyes sparkled. Riku was lost, he had never seen eyes that... hypnotic. He shook himself and tried not to stare. "Hey, there." The brunette waved.
"H- hey." He was nervous and he didn't really understand why.
"My name's Sora." Sora reached out his hand. Riku shaking the hand.
"My name's Riku."
The brunette laughed lightly. "I know."
"You know?" Riku gave Sora a what-do-you-mean look. "How?"
"Let me explain." Sora put his guns in their holsters. "Before I explain, we need to go somewhere more private."
"What I'm going to tell you is top-secret."
"Fine. We'll go back to my place."
Riku raising a silver eyebrow, "Why not?"
"Your apartment is been watched."
"How do you know?"
"I just do. I can't explain it here. Just trust me."
Riku held back a laugh. Trust him, he had only just met the guy. But something in those blue orbs told him that the brunette wouldn't do anything. "Okay. There a café just down the road."
Sora smiled brightly. "Alright. Lead the way."
They had arrived at the only café on Hearts Way. Riku was a bit miffed that this boy was hiding so much from him. He wanted to know the truth, the whole truth. The sat down in the conner away from anyone else.
"Okay. Explain now! How do you know everything?"
"I've been watching you for about three months now. That's how I knew that you were in trouble. That's also how I know your name."
Riku's eyes widen and he blushed slightly. He's been watching me non-stop for three months. That means he's seen everything. Oh fuck. "Three months?"
Sora lowered his head in shame. "I'm sorry. I was supposed to introduce myself earlier but, you were always with your gang, and I didn't have my guns till now."
"Why have you been watching me?" Riku was suspicious of this strange boy.
"We want you to join us."
"'We?' Join you? Stop being so vague. Spit it out already."
"Alright. I'm a spy, working for a man called 'Cid Kramer', who owns a spy school that I currently go to. I've been watching you for the past three months to see if you are liable to join us. You are, so I'm officially asking you to join us?" Sora had spoken fast. He was nervous, worried that the silver haired boy would accept or not.
Riku thought about it for a moment. "If I join, do I have to kill anyone?"
"No. We don't kill unless it is the last resort. We do injure a few people, but the guns are just for show, even though they do have bullets in them."
Riku thought about it for a bit more. What did he have to lose? Right now he had no life. If he accepted he would be safe, again. "Okay." Riku said grinning widely. "I'll join."
"YAY!" Sora jumped in his seat happily. "Right, first of all I have to meet up with two of the other members. I just hope they're there." Sora lifted up his arm, which had a watch on it. Riku look confuses at the watch. The brunette pushed a button and started to speak into the watch. "Hey Darkness. Light is ready for you." A few moments passed.
A smooth male voice came from the watch. "Hey, Light. Umm... Darkness is a little pre-occupied. Heartless is here, though."
"Again." Sora let out an exasperated sigh. "Are you alright for speaking normal?"
"Yeah, all clear this end. Where are you? Have you got the 'Alpha'?"
Sora looked up at Riku. "Yeah, he's here. I'm at the café on Hearts way."
"Alright, me and Yuffie, will meet you there."
"No problem, Sora. Just remind me to take it out on Cloud and Sephiroth."
"I will and I'll be joining you on that.."
"Right, we'll be there in ten minutes." Another voice was heard in the background. "Can you order Yuffie a chocolate milkshake?"
Sora chuckled. "Sure thing." Sora pressed another button and looked back to Riku, who still looked confused.
"What the hell was that?" Riku was in confused awe. He had never seen a watch like that.
"You'll get one of these," Sora said pointing at the watch. "When we get back to HQ."
"Alright." Riku smiled, cheerfully. He kind of felt safe with this brunette. "What was all the 'Darkness', 'Light' and 'Heartless' thing about? And what's the 'Alpha'?"
"The 'Alpha' is the surveillance target. So that would be you." Sora smiled. "'Heartless' and that are our codenames. We're put in to pairs and given a codename. Mine is Light. Squall and Yuffie, who I was just talking to, are Heartless. And Sephiroth and Cloud, who were supposed to be meeting me, are Darkness."
Riku was silence for a moment, letting the words sink in. "Where's your partner?"
"Hopefully he's sitting right in front of me." Sora said happily.
"Me? Why?" Asked Riku, curiously.
"Yeah. I've never had a partner, and the guy that runs the school, Cid, said that if you accepted then you could be my partner." Sora said while standing up. "Do you want a drink?"
"Yeah. Can I get a strawberry milkshake?"
"Sure thing." Smiled Sora. The brunette walked up to the counter to order the drinks. Riku was lost in his thoughts. He was going to be a spy, and Sora's partner. The brunette boy was very interesting. Riku was taken aback at the sudden outbursts of the boy. It was kind of like he had a split personality. He felt like he wanted to know every different side of Sora. He couldn't help but stare at the boy. The brunette had the most amazing eyes that Riku had ever seen. If Sora was to leave him, he would never forgot those bright, sparkling blue eyes.
Sora returned with a tray with four milkshakes. Just then a tall male brunette, with ivory skin and steel grey eyes, walked in. He was closely followed by a shorter female brunette with slightly sun kissed skin and dark brown eyes. The male looked around and spotted. Sora. "Sora." He waved.
"Hi, Squall." Sora waved for them to take a seat.
"Thanks, Sora." Said the brunette girl as she took her milkshake and sat down next to Riku. "Hi, I'm Yuffie. That's Squall." She said jerking her thumb at the male brunette.
Riku looked at her. "I'm Riku." Squall took the seat next to Sora across from Yuffie.
Yuffie laughed. "I know. I watched the videos." Riku's cheeks turned bright red, but this didn't stop Yuffie. "So I finally get to meet the one who poisoned little Sora's mind."
"Yuffie!" Sora stared wide eye at the girl. "Leave Riku alone."
"Okay, okay." She took a drink of her milkshake. "Mm... yummy."
Squall noticed there was one drink left. "Thanks, Sora."
Sora smiled. "No problem. Thought you might have wanted one." Sora started to drink his vanilla milkshake. Squall drank his strawberry milkshake, which was his favourite. It never ceased to amaze him how Sora knew he wanted one. Sort of like the kid was psychic.
They drank in a comfortable silence until a male voice was heard from Squall's watch. "Leeeooon."
Squall pressed a button and growled at the watch. "It's Squall, not Leon."
"Fine, Squall." Whined the voice. "You guys need to get back, to Uncle. Cid's went crazy."
"And who's, fault is that? "Stop whining, man. Squall let out a tired sigh. "We'll be back in about half an hour. Oh and Cloud, you owe me and Yuffie." Sora nudged Squall. "And Sora."
"Yeah, yeah. Just get here quick, okay?" Cloud pleaded.
"Alright." Squall pressed another button.
Riku looked confused, again. "Uncle?"
"That means HQ." Sora laughed. "Oh, Squall before we head back we need to go to Riku's to pick up his stuff."
"My stuff? Why?" This whole day was leaving his brain very tangled.
"If you want to that is. Sorry I just assumed you would be moving in. You could stay at your apartment, but you will still be watched by your gang and us. Remember I told you that someone else was watching your home? It was your gang." Inside Riku mind everything went click. He nodded for Sora to continue. "If you move in then you'll have all the privacy you want. It's sort of like a boarding school, well that what we tell out parents anyway."
"I see. I was wondering if any of you had parents?" Asked Riku.
"Not all of us do. Sephiroth, Cloud and Yuffie are all orphans. Squall and myself, see our parents during the holidays." Sora said, rather quickly. "But the spy school is my home."
"Ohh." Riku thought about moving in. What did he have to lose? "Alright then. I'll move in." Smiled Riku.
"Yay!" Sora jumped in his seat. "Fantastic. I have a partner and now no more videos."
Riku blushed. 'I hope they burn those videos.' He thought.
Me: All done. ::cracks knuckles::

Me: So what do you guys think? Good? Bad? Please leave a review.
Riku: How long till the next chapter?
Me: Not long a just have to type it up.
