The funeral of Sora. Nobody thought this day would come for at least fifty years. Most of the figures Sora had ever met with were there. Donald, Goofy, King Mickey and his Queen, Aeris, Leon, Yuffie, Peter Pan, Tarzan, Cloud, and more importantly, Riku and Kairi.
It was raining on the Destiny Islands. The skies wept over the loss of such a great man. A man who fought for every living being alive; people he didn't even know. OSra was a true example of a hero.
The funeral was being held on a beach. Sora's casket was a large onyx box, six feet in length. It was a gift from King Mickey. A little stage was put up in front of all of the chairs put up for the guests. That box was right in front of the podium.
Riku was wearing a black suit today with a plain black tie. He stood next to Kairi, who was wearing a black dress. They both had their heads down and Kairi was softly sobbing.
"Kai, do you think you can do it?"
"I can. I'll do it for Sora."
A religious figure was babbling on the podium. It was almost time for Kairi to read her eulogy. She had written it herself and accepted no help. She wanted it to be from the heart. From her heart.
"And now for the reading of the eulogy." announced the man as he stepped down.
Kairi slowly walked up to the stage. Adjusting the microphone she began to read.
"Sora is a name that nobody here will forget. It is a name to all of us, special in its own way. For some of us, he saved lies, to others he took a task he shouldn't have done. I hae a different meaning for Sora's name. It is the name of a man I loved." Read Kairi choking back tears. "When Sora died he was only Fifteen years old, barely old enough to taste life. But he had. He had lived his whole life in just one short period of time. He gave his life for all of us. If he never took the Keyblade he would be alive today but the rest of us would die. Sora is the protector of all of us." Kairi read beginning to cry. "Sora lost his soul to save all of us!" Kairi was now straying form what was on the paper. "he could have gae it to somebody else but he fought!" Kairi was very visibly sobbing.
Riku walked up to take Kairi offstage. She was crying her eyes out. She had lost a friend. And a lover.
"Do you want me to walk you home after this?" Riku whispered in her ear.
"Did you bring you car?" she muttered still crying.
"I'm sorry. My place is only a walk away from here."
"It's okay." She whispered.
The man who was up before resumed his able concluding the ceremony. After thirty minutes of praying, it was time to put a friend to rest. A hole was already dug of to the side. Slowly the coffin was lowered into it. Kairi threw bouquet of flowers on top of the coffin. She cried even more. This would be the last time she would ever see Sora.
"C'mon Kairi." Riku said putting his arm around her.
Together they just walked. Neither of them said anything. Riku never was a big word person. After ten minutes of silent slow walking they came to Kairi's place.
"Kairi you know my home and cell if you need anything right? The home's 590-2567 and my cell is 760-7587." said Riku handing her a slip with the numbers.
Kairi went inside. Riku waited outside her house for a minute and than just walked away. He checked his pocket watch that he liked to wear with the suit. It was Eight at night. Riku turned and started to head home.
That night, Kairi just cried. She just cried and cried. She just need to do that. Just let her emotions loose.
