FM: Alright I am back with the rewrite for far away! This is still a Riku/Sora and…

Riku: Like you would write anything else. .

FM: Actually Riku I could just pair you up with another guy of one of my own characters for a change and make sure I kill off Sora so that you wouldn't ever see him again.

Sora: Don't do that! Hugs Riku

FM: I just might have to after that comment from Riku.

Riku: Fine I take it back now just get on with the story already!

FM: Do the disclaimer.

Far Away Chapter 1. Sending you my love

This time, This place
Misused, Mistakes
Too long, Too late
Who was I to make you wait
Just one chance
Just one breath
Just in case there's just one left
'Cause you know,
you know, you know

Riku was listening to one of his favorite songs on his ipod as he sat at his computer checking his Myspace messages.

"Same old thing." He said to himself as he scrolled through his inbox. He was disappointed that there was nothing from Sora.

I really miss him. We haven't talked all week and we aren't even fighting and our fights don't even last a week. I always tell myself that I should have had him follow me here to the main land but then I know that I would be tearing him from his friends and family, He deserves to graduate with his best friends instead of starting over. I really didn't want to leave him alone there and I felt like an ass when I did. It's like every time I think of him I see those sad tear filled blue eyes that I left behind in August. I know we agreed that we would try and not let this affect us but I think it is and that I'm loosing him. Riku thought as he ran a pale hand through his silver locks and put up an away message.

That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
and you'll never go
Stop breathing if
I don't see you anymore

Sora was sitting alone in his room listening to the same song except that it was on radio.

I really miss him. I know he's only on the mainland but that doesn't ease my worries. I'm afraid that something will happen to him and I won't be there for him or that we will fall apart and not be together. Sometimes I wish that I opened my mouth and said that I wanted him to stay here but then I know that he wouldn't be happy so I had to let him.

Sora felt a tear escape from his eye and roll down his cheek and onto his hand which was lying on top of his curled up legs.

Oh Sora what am I going to do with you? Sora's mother asked herself as she walked passed his room and made her way down the stairs.
One my knees, I'll ask
Last chance for one last dance
'Cause with you, I'd withstand
All of hell to hold your hand
I'd give it all
I'd give for us
Give anything but I won't give up
'Cause you know,
you know, you know
Sora uncurled his body and went to his computer. As soon as it loaded up he signed on to AIM and started talking to Kairi. A few minutes later he saw a pop up saying that someone put up an away message.

Elementb0ards is away… so Riku's actually on. Sora clicked on Riku's screen name and sent him a short message telling him to check his Myspace. Then Sora switched over to his Myspace and checked through all of his own messages.

Nothing from Riku. He finally clicked on Riku's picture and decided to send him a message.
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
and you'll never go
Stop breathing if
I don't see you anymore
Sora sent his message before putting up his own away message so he could go shower.

Riku came back and noticed that he had a message and smiled when he noticed that it was from Sora.

Message from Kn1ghTofKingdomS. Sora…Riku thought as he clicked on the message.

Kn1ghTofKingdomS: Check your Myspace.

Kn1ghTofKingdomS is away. So Riku opened up his Myspace and saw that he had another new message. He clicked on the red letters and saw that the message was form Sora. He clicked on it again and opened it.


Hey love how are you? I hope that school is going well for you. Things are good here but they aren't the same. Nothing has been the same since you left last summer. I miss you so much and I wish that you were here. I feel that you've been away forever even though it has only been four months since the last time that I saw you at Christmas. I should have said something when you asked what I thought about the schools that had accepted you but I wanted you to be happy. No matter what the cost to me. I love you so much that I would literally do anything for you. I count down the days until you come home for the summer and I can't wait.

Oh and Kairi says hello too!

Love always and forever-

Now Riku isn't one to cry over things but this time he felt a small tear run down his cheek. Once Riku composed himself he turned and look at his calendar that Sora had given him. The calendar contained pictures of Sora and himself. He smiled to himself as he looked at the picture. It was one of him and Sora sitting at the beach during one of the many sunny days on Destiny Islands. Riku was propped up by his hands being extended behind him and Sora was sitting in between his legs and leaning against Riku's chest. Riku remembered that day well. They had Kairi take the picture for them with Sora's camera. Riku shook himself from his day dream and looked at the dates. He had written his classes and the times for everyday on it.

Alright no class…tomorrow or Monday but we have band practice on Saturday. I'm sure Axel won't be to mad if I don't go this one time. Riku picked up his cell and called Axel.


"Hey Axel what's up?"

"Who is this?"

"Don't tell me that you forgot to program my number into your phone again. It's me Riku."

"Oh hey and I didn't forget I just… haven't gotten to it yet."

"Riiight anyway I called to tell you that I can't go to practice on Saturday."

"What are you talking about? You have to go to practice!"

"This is my only four day weekend for a while until school is over actually. I want to go home and see Sora."

"Fine… When are you coming back?"

"Tuesday but I don't know what time. I leave tomorrow morning, tell the guys I'm sorry."

"Yeah what ever have fun with your boyfriend…girlfriend… or what ever you call him.

"Boyfriend and thanks Axel. See ya when I get back." He closed his cell and went around his dorm room and got together the things that he was going to take with him for the weekend.

"Sora get up or you're going to be late!" His mother yelled from down stairs.

3…2…1 There was a thud on the floor above her. She just shook her head and walked into the kitchen. Within minutes Sora came running down the stairs. He was just about to step out the door when…

"Hold it right there. What are you to old to even say good bye to me anymore?"

"Mom I'm gonna be late!" Sora whined at the door. His mother just walked over to him and kissed him lightly on the forehead before letting him go.

"Have a good day okay."

"Sure mom." Then he took his keys and was out the door and to his car in less than a minute. Once she closed the door and entered the kitchen her phone rang.


"Hi how are you?"

"Fine. Who is this?"


"Oh hello Riku. Sora just left but I can tell him to call you once he gets home."

"No actually I wanted to talk to you. I'm planning to come home to surprise Sora this weekend but I …"

"Need somewhere to stay right? That's fine if you stay here Riku."

"Thank you so much. I'll be there tomorrow morning after Sora leaves for school."

"Alright see you then." She hung up the phone and went about her daily routine of cleaning up the house after her son.

He's going to be so happy to see Riku once he gets here.

"Sora!" Ash yelled from across the school paring lot once Sora pulled in. She quickly made her way over to his silver mustang convertible.

"Hey Ash what's up?" Sora said with his usual smile on his face.

"Same old same old. Why are you so sad Sora?"

"I'm not sad." He said as he got out of his car and grabbed his books.

"You are I can tell. You should know that you can't hide these things from me!" Ash pulls out a video camera and starts to film Sora.

"Tell me all of your drama!"

"Now this is getting a little scary but you're right. I guess that Riku being gone for so long is really getting to me." He said as they walked towards the school.

"I mean we haven't talked in a week when we used to call each other everyday."

"Maybe you should call him. The phone does work both ways."

"I do call him but all I get is his voice mail. I stopped leaving messages a while ago cause he never has time to call back." Sora said as he opened his locker and exchanged his books.

"Sora!" a voice yelled from down the hall. .Foot steps could be heard against the tiled floor as the person came closer to the pair.

"Oh hay Kairi what's up?"

"Nothing really, ready to go to class?"

"Yeah lets go. See you later Ash." Sora said before walking away to class with Kairi.

"So are you ready for prom?" Kairi asked as they entered the classroom.

"No, I don't even know if Riku will be able to come down to go with me."

"Have you even told him about it yet?" she asked as she took her seat next to him.

"Yeah I told him the last time we talked to each other so he does know about it. He just doesn't know if he can make it this year because of classes and stuff. And he has exams coming up to." Kairi just looked to Sora with sad eyes because of the pity that she felt for him as the teacher started her lesson.

Riku finally came back to his dorm after a full day of classes and crashed onto his bed.

Finally today is over which means that only a few more hours until I leave for DI. Suddenly his phone rang and said that he had a new text message. Riku flipped open his phone and read the message.

/Just wanted to say hi and that I love you/ Riku smiled to himself and sent a message back to him. He's just so cute sometimes especially when he does stuff like this. Riku thought as he fell asleep for the night.
