Disclaimer:My amount of ownage is only two video games and a CD. "Catalogue" is property of Pompeii, and Kingdom Hearts is property of Squeenix. Although right now I really wish it wasn't. No Sora in the next one?! It's not Kingdom Hearts without being able to (mis?)interpret everything between Riku and Sora as yaoi and then taking inspiration from that and writing these crappy stories, I tell you!
Warnings: Lemons in the future…ugh. My pure mind is going to be ruined by this website . (Haha…who am I kidding? But it does make me blush…eep)
Author's Notes: Just wanted to say quickly here: PLEASE DON'T READ THIS IF YOU WERE SATISFIED WITH FWR's ENDING! I was very hesitant with writing this but due to popular demand and just a personal need for more sappy romance, it happened. Hope you enjoy?
If ever there were a cause for drift
I'd swear it to be the land or air,
Because accounting for all that space between us
Would make it seem like we don't care.
No, but we still care.
Home was the smell of salt water, the feel of sand between my toes, the sweet taste of a paopu. Home was aching memories, laughter, friendship,…love. And somehow, in that short period of time, home was where I was by your side.
But here I am, the scenery blurring past the window as I stare blankly outside the car on the way "home"…and it doesn't feel like it. Four years, and maybe I don't belong here anymore. Four years, and maybe everything's changed. Four years, and maybe you've given up on waiting. Maybe you've fallen in love. Maybe this isn't home.
Four years, and it feels like an eternity.
And maybe it's just too late.
There's a sense of loneliness that always seems to accompany nostalgia. The thing about revisiting old memories is just that- you realize that all they are now are…memories. The boundaries between past and present.
The boundaries between being in love and merely remembering what it's like…
If only I knew what those were.
It's horrible, isn't it? The fact that I don't even know how I feel about you anymore…
But an eternity is an awfully long time to be apart.
I press my forehead against the cool glass of the window, trying to fight off the growing ache in my temple. Back then, I never would have expected it to go like this. Finally coming back to Destiny Islands- it was what I wanted, right? What I had been waiting for…
We had a promise to keep, after all.
I guess more than anything else I'm just…scared. Fear of the unknown, if you will. Because really…nothing's guaranteed at this point. Thinking that everything will just pick up where we left it…it's only wishful thinking in the end.
It's easy to make a promise…but it's just as easy to break one.
Because love is a fragile thing, and maybe an eternity is just too much for it to endure.
But…I miss you, Riku. That's one thing that I can be certain of.
Author's Notes: Yeah, that was pretty pointless on its own…but bear with me. For some reason I can barely write anything lately, so I was lucky to even get this much out. I dunno…high school is like sucking all of the creative juices out of me or something…I'm just having a really hard time getting any ideas I have down on paper. So tada, it's a prologue.
I can't really promise consistent updates at the moment…between working on several projects at once and having almost no idea what to do with any of them, I'm just gonna write whatever I can whenever I get inspired. The good thing about this story is that the gears have slowly been turning since I finished FWR, so I think this'll probably win my attention for the next update. :D
Review, pretty please? I know there's probably not much to say for a teeny tiny prologue, but maybe just that you're happy there's a sequel or something? I'm in much need of motivation at the moment, so it would be greatly appreciated. And besides, I just love you guys…FWR readers were my very first on this site. Aw, I didn't realize how much I missed you guys and my story...It's good to be back
And now I'm going to shut up since I'm like rambling on a whole lot more than I've actually written. Haha, I'm such a dork XD
-Emmy...in all her dorky glory
