A/N: Back on October 31st at about 11:30 p.m., I swore I would NEVER try to do this again.

On November 1st at about 12:01 a.m., I thought, "WOW, that was fun, let's do it again!"

At which point my rational self said, "Uh, NO. Not November, too."

"Okay! Let's do it for December!"


So here we are, a month later, and I have a new list of 31 prompts. This time they are plucked straight from the shuffle mode of my iPod, and I receive no other prompt except a character pulled from my pocket. (Well, tear a piece of paper into the proper number of scraps, write names on them, shuffle, and draw one. Since October killed me because I limited myself to scary/creepy stuff, this time there is nothing like that. (Don't expect scary/creepy stuff... I'm all scared/creeped out. XD) Without further ado, here is Sora to start us off with December.

7. Hand in Hand

Sora never thought about sharing a paopu with Kairi anymore. He, Kairi, and Riku had been through so much together that it wouldn't seem right. Whenever he thought back, Sora remembered

long sunlit days on the Island, racing back and forth, the sand flying beneath their feet, laughing, breathing in the free salt air

splashing in the ocean, the sun burning bare skin but no one really caring

watermelon in the tree house

the cool darkness of the secret place, the smell and scrape of chalk on stone walls

the goldorangeredpurple of sunset, the curve of the tree

and he split the paopu into three.

One for me. One for you. One for you.

Sealed with the burst of juicy sweetness.
