Author's note: FINALLY…..the last chapter is UP!!! Thanks for being patient. Trust me, I wanted to type it up sooner, but I was too busy with "life" (you all know how that can be). Yes, reviewlord, it would be a good idea to end it at the last chapter, but then how could I write my sequel? (I've already started it)

Kingdom Hearts: Return of the Heartless

Chap. 20 Unexpected Endings

"I will return, and you will pay!" Ansem warned. Then, he vanished.

"Sora, Kairi! Are you guys ok?" asked Riku when Goofy, Donald, and him came over. He saw Kairi kneeling down, her eyes full of tears.

"He's…" she started.

"Oh, no…"

"…he's gone….."

"This…this can't be happening."

Donald and Goofy were distraught, and everyone began to cry.

Suddenly, Riku heard a noise behind him and turned around. A heartless stood there shivering. Riku walked over.

"What do you want?" he questioned.

The heartless looked up, "You…destroyed the ultimate heartless. All others are dying…and I am fading with them. Would you like me to help you…one last…time?"

Riku realized it was the shadow heartless that had appeared on the ship, "Sure, sure…if you can. I doubt it will ease our sorrow."

"It…may yet," it handed Riku something, "Here….." it shrunk into a boiling, black puddle of darkness.

Riku opened his hand. He held a tube with some solution in it. A note was attached to it.

"What's this?" he took it off…

It read:


Tonic Solution / HP reviver: One use only

I hope this helps your situation. -Anonymous


Riku couldn't believe his eyes. Maybe there was hope.

"Hey, guys…" he went over to them, "Give Sora this," he held his hand out.

Donald grabbed it and read the piece of paper, "It can't be…Kairi, give this to him."

"What?" she was confused.

"Just do it!"

Kairi did as she was told, and everybody stood around, waiting patiently.

"Does it work?" pondered Goofy

Kairi bent down, "Sora…can you hear me?"

Seconds later, Sora began breathing again. Kairi smiled.

Sora opened his eyes, "…Kairi?"

"Sora! You're all right!!!" she leaned down, giving Sora a kiss. Then she sat up, surprised she had done that. Sora just smiled.


Sora, Kairi, and Riku were returned home on the gummi ship. They waved goodbye as Goofy and Donald flew away.

"It's great to be back," thought Riku.

"Yeah…" Sora looked at the sunset, "I think I'm going home…"

"Me, too," Riku and him walked away. Kairi sat on the dock. Sora looked behind him, seeing her there. He went over and stood behind her.

"What's the matter, Kairi?"

"Oh…nothing," she lied.

Sora sat down beside her, "C'mon, something must be bothering you."

Kairi faced him, "Sora, what if Ansem comes back?...Everything will happen all over again…" she was scared.

"Don't worry…If anything does happen, I'll be there for you."

Kairi started crying. Sora lifted her head.


She finally looked up, still crying.

"…..I love you…"

Kairi was a little surprised to hear him say that, "Really?"

Sora looked into her eyes, "With all my heart…"


She was cut off when Sora gave her a long, passionate kiss.

Afterwards, Kairi spoke, "Sora…I love you, too….."

They both walked toward the beach, hand in hand. (A/N: Awwww, so cute!)
