Kairi was sat on the beach, as she had done every day, at this time, for the last three weeks, four days, 12 hours and 55 minutes.

Donald Duck, Court Magician, and Goofy, Captain of the Guards, were sat next to her, his Royal Highness, King Mickey, was stood behind them. They returned to the Destiny Islands, three weeks, four days, 13 hours and 10 minutes ago, only two days after Sora and Riku had been trapped inside Kingdom Hearts, the heart of all worlds. Kairi had wanted to stay in the World That Never Was, but the others had convinced her that if the boys were to find a doorway out, it would lead to the home they'd searched for…

But it was now a month later, Kaira was beginning to fear they were never coming back, a fear she refused to share with the others. Xemnas had been defeated, they just had to find a way out…

But why had the door shut before Sora and Riku had been able to get out?

Things had gone so wrong since the Islands had fallen into darkness the first time, Riku and Sora had fought, and then Riku had been trapped inside Kingdom Hearts, and Sora stayed in the others worlds to try to find a way to help him, then everyone had forgotten them for a year, something that really freaked Kairi out, how could she forget him? And then all this craziness had started.

Kairi wanted her friends to come home for the first time in nearly two years.

She raised her eyes to the sky, the first star of the evening had come out, Kairi wondered which world it was. She remembered a silly tradition…

Starlight, Star bright, first star I see tonight,

I wish I may, I wish I might, I wish that I might wish tonight…

I wish that Sora and Riku would come home soon…

She had to blink twice as two stars fell from the heavens, straight into the ocean.

She thought that she was imagining them, but Goofy turned to her, "You saw that, right?"

"Two stars, falling from the sky…" Kairi mumbled… Please, please…

They stayed there, watching, waiting, hoping, but it wasn't until something washed up on the beach, no two somethings, that Kairi really started to hope, she raced down the beach…

Where Sora and Riku were coughing up water.

And proceeded to get glomped by everyone. Sora ended up tackled by a duck, and whatever the hell Goofy was, while Mickey tackled Riku. Then it was Kairi's turn and she hugged them both at the same time…

She just had one thing she wanted to say to them…

"Welcome home."
