"Riku..." He knelt down on one knee before her, taking her hands in his.

Riku felt her heart beat faster within her chest. This was it. This was the moment she had been waiting for ever since that time Dark had rescued her from Krad's clutches two years ago.


"Will you…" He stopped, and after a moment of silence, tried again. "Will you..." Dark trailed off again, averting his eyes. He blushed.

Riku blushed in turn, waiting for him to state his proposal.

Say it. Just say it, dammit!

"Will you..." He took a deep breath, then turned to gaze at her brown eyes with his violet. "Will you..."


"Will you loan me $300?" he blurted.

Riku's eyes widened in shock.

What? What! He's kneeling before me to ask for 300 bucks?
