Chapter 9: Itsy Bitsy Spider

"Kai-" a little boy's voice said being cut off by a flash of light. "I'll find you, I'll never let go!"

"I know you will!" a little girl's voice answered.

White light was all around me with random outburst of voices that were incomprehensible.

A man with long white hair and orange eyes appeared before me. He was topless and was reaching his arm out towards something invisible to my eyes. He seemed badly wounded.

"Kingdom Hearts! Fill me, with the power of darkness!" the man spoke. The same little boy's voice spoke up, sounding certain. The little boy was wearing a weird red and white outfit with really big yellow shoes. The strangest thing though, is that his face was blurry, like a person who wanted to remain anonymous.

"You're wrong!" the little boy spoke, "I know now, without a doubt, that Kingdom Hearts… is light!"

White light once again surrounded me.

I awoke with a high-pitched scream. I sat straight up and looked around seeing Sai'x dancing around like a fool and looking at the ground, screaming his lungs off.

"What the hell?" I whispered to myself. I looked in the doorway of the room I was in and seen

Axel, Roxas, and Demyx rolling around on the floor laughing.

Sai'x ran over to the bed I was lying on and jumped on it with a huge belly flop. I quickly got off the bed and looked at Sai'x hyperventilate.

"What the hell is your problem?!" I screamed at him. Axel, Roxas, and Demyx laughed harder.

"You damn fools! I'll get you for this!" Sai'x swore as he deteriorated into a black portal.

The three men stopped for a minute and looked at each other, then me and had another out burst of laughs.

"What did you do?" I asked. They continued laughing. Getting fed up, I walked over to Axel and grasped him by his collar, then pinned him against the doorframe.

"A little touchy, are we?" Axel said with a smirk.

"You wish. Now tell me what you did. Did it evolve me?" I asked pinning him harder.

Axel grabbed hold of my shoulders and with a smirk, easily threw me to the other side of the doorframe. He pinned me there, leaning his muscular body against my scrawny one. Not only did he have warm hands, but a warm body too. The force of my back hitting the doorframe sent waves of tremendous pain throughout my body. I gasped and Axel gave another one of his sly smirks.

"Get off me!" I yelled, struggling against the strong body holding me down. Axel leaned in closer only two inches from my face and looked into my eyes. I stopped struggling. Those eyes.. they were.. memorizing. So beautiful and mysterious. I could stare at them forever.

Axel burst out laughing. He got off me and I fell to the ground (he was holding my body up with his). Roxas and Demyx joined Axel in his laughing rampage.

"Dude, you seriously have to teach me how to do that!" Demyx said in between chuckles.

Roxas held his hand out to help me up. I ignored him and got up on my own.

"Do what? And you still didn't tell me what you did to Sai'x!" I asked confused.

"We put a fake spider on the ground and tied a string to it. Then when Sai'x came to check on you, we made both of them do a little dance!" Demyx said. The three men started laughing again with the memory of Sai'x dancing.

"Whatever." I said looking around the room. It was a plain room with maroon walls. The ceiling and wall border were both a cream color. The floor was wood. There was also a bed leaning against the south wall, about a queen size. It had a maroon comforter on it with an imprint from where I slept and from when Sai'x attacked me. There was a door on either side of the room, plus the one that Axel pinned me on.

"This is your room." Roxas said.

"It's pretty." I replied.

"You can decorate it yourself." Roxas said.

"Yeah, you should see Axel's room." Demyx piped in.

"Hmm, maybe she will see it one day." Axel smirked with a wink.

Ignoring Axel's comment I went to the door on the east side of the room. It was a closet filled with the black robes that everyone was wearing. It was also filled with some other clothes like jeans and shirts. Then in the back there was a few formal dresses. I grabbed for a long black dress with red flames coming up from the bottom and wrapping around the waist. The back was bare and it tied around the neck with transparent long sleeves. It was gorgeous.

"Thought you would like that one." Axel said.

"Dinner is in half an hour. I'll be here in 25 minutes to bring you there." Demyx piped in.

"Okay." I agreed.

"See you later Ara!" Roxas said slapping me on the shoulder. When he touched me, there was a small spark and we both went flying through the air and landed with a thud on the ground.

"What the hell?" Axel asked confused.

Roxas and I both got up and stared at each other.

"That was strange." Roxas said, breathing heavily.

"Yes it was." I replied.

Then a flash of light appeared and Roxas was holding a Keyblade.

My eyes opened wide in surprise. How could this be? There were only four Keyblade bearers. How could there be five?

"Why did this appear?" Roxas asked himself, then he put his weapon away.

The surprise must have been plastered on my face.

"You okay Ara?" Axel asked.

"Uh, yea." I replied in a daze.

Another flash of light appeared, and I knew what would come out this time. I fought the urge for my Keyblade to come out and summoned my Wishgranter.

I chuckled. "Maybe destiny wants us to fight?"

"Maybe!" Roxas laughed.

After some useless laughing, Roxas and Axel left. I took a shower and put on one of the black robes. It formed itself around my body. Exposing every one of my curves (which wasn't many). I looked in the mirror and admitted to myself that I looked really good.

"Drop dead gorgeous." I whispered to myself.

There was a knock at the door. I shut off the bathroom light and headed to the night's convention.
