Kiki: OMG! I'm posting a new story? And it's a Kingdom Hearts one?! Leh gasp! Yes, I've become one of those weird Kingdom Hearts fanatics, but I still do love Naruto. (smile) I'm hoping that this one won't be so bad. Well, not so bad to me, since I seem to criticize my work more than anyone else. (laugh) I'm posting the prologue and seeing how it goes, neh? Please read, review, and tell me if I should continue or not. I also apologize for being so… bleh the last time I updated here to those who read my other Naruto fan fictions. Well, I hope you guys like it! (claps hands together and prays.)
Beta-chan: Hi, so like if any of you guys see an error, just PM me the chapter, the line, the correct spelling. Now, I know, what kind of Beta am I, well I'm a French one! So I won't usually see grammar errors. So just go bother me, k? (username: knd44)
Disclaimer: I no
own teh KH awesomeness.
Warnings: Shounen-ai/yaoi (whatever you guys wanna call it. I don't care), bad language, probably typos, spelling and grammar issues, etc.
Pairings: Both straight and 'bent'. (laugh) I won't let the pairings out yet. They'll probably be a lot of weird ones though.
The first chapter is in Roxas's POV. It's a bit angst-y, but I promise it won't be in later chapters (that is, if you guys want me to continue?).
When you think of
opposites, what comes to mind?
Do you think of day and night? Black and white?
The two seem so f a r a p a r t.
But I remember that my mother once told me this;
"In darkness, there is light,
And in light, there is darkness."
I never quite understood what she meant.
Two things so different, could never go together,
Just like the pieces of a puzzle.
But growing up, I've learned that I was Wrong.
You need a bit of both to truly be Whole.
Without the other, a person is never entirely Full.
I had never thought how true it could be.
I never realized how Incomplete I was.
And so…I became Lonely…
With a puzzle, you need two different pieces.
One has a space, and the other fills it.
And I've come to believe that there is only one other piece
That can fill the space in my heart.
I just don't know who it is yet…
It was in the midst of summer, and the children were playing and enjoying their sweet summer vacation. If they hadn't taken in the time now, lectures and schoolbooks would come all too soon. It being the last few weeks of their joyous time, the children crammed in as much fun as they could. They'd especially have fun today because it was a perfect day. The weather was bright and sunny, and the sky was a warm colored blue, cloudless and endlessly free.
So why was Roxas Hikari locked up in the cold darkness of this bedroom?
The curtains blocked out the light, and no one took the time to turn on a lamp. But Roxas didn't seem to care. He was curled up into a ball on his bed. A thin blanket was wrapped around his tiny figure. Wetness seeped into the sheets as they slowly dripped from his teary blue eyes.
Roxas was crying.
A lot of things are hard to deal with alone, but Roxas knew that if he let anyone else in, it'd be even harder. This way, he could just lie there and let the tears run as freely as they pleased. He didn't have the need to hold them back here. No one was watching, and no one knew.
Today was supposed to be a perfect day, and it was, but only for everyone else. Because on this very same day, Roxas found out something he wished he hadn't. And he knew tears wouldn't fix things. Yes, he knew, but the tears refused to be repressed.
The quiet of the house didn't help much either. Roxas knew that a house isn't actually a home. It may have things inside, but it doesn't have the things a home has. Home is where Roxas's friends are. And home was where his family was. So, without a family, could it still be called a home?
Roxas and his family lived in Twilight Town, a large beautiful city. They weren't really a family, since it consisted of only two—Roxas and his mother. Nevertheless, they were happy. They loved their town and the people in them. Roxas never asked for anything more. He liked it there. He loved his home. It was the light of this life.
But then there was that accident…So now, without his light, Roxas was left alone in the dark.
His mother, his only family, had died in a car accident. Roxas heard that a lot of people died that way. There are people who worked late and hard into the night, and then have to drive home. And in the same lateness of those nights, there are idiots who go get drunk, drive, and then crash into other people. Yeah, Roxas heard stuff like the always happening. But it wasn't the same when someone you care about is involved. When a person you love is hurt or gone, that's when you realize that you're weaker than you used to believe.
And Roxas found out that he was weak—really weak. After summer vacation, he'd start high school. He was supposed to be a strong, mature teenager. Yet, here he was, crying his eyes out like a helpless child in cold dark silence.
Roxas needed a light. He wanted to feel the warmth again. If only there was someone to give it to him…
Kiki: Oooh, wasn't that angst-y? Well, at least that's over. Now you know about Roxas's situation, and I won't extend on it. (laugh) If I did, I'll probably make it so complicated even I wouldn't understand it! Well, I'm not sure what pairings I'll have in the end, but I have an idea who I'll put in until then. Feel free to suggest any that you want or like. I'm not doing only Roxas either. Of course there are always the side pairings. Well, (bow) I hope you all will support me! Please tell me what you honestly think of it.
Beta-chan: I'm really glad Kiki-chan re-started to write stories (hug) I'm so proud of you, Nee-chan.
Kiki: (hugs back) Thanks! I'm really happy about it too. (big smile)
