She grabbed his hand and led him outside. He was curious but stayed quiet. She could feel the excitement in the way he held her hand. Or that might have just been her. Who knows?

Her shoes were inside the house. The cool evening dew was refreshing against her bare feet as they continued walking. Their hands stayed intertwined.

She led him down the path through the woods. They came to a clearing that was glowing with the light of the moon in the starry sky.

Finally he spoke.

"Kairi, what are we doing?"

A light breeze blew and she shivered. Sora instinctively moved his arm around her waist.

"It's such a beautiful night. I wanted to share it with you," she blushed at how cheesy that sounded.

Sora made to catch a firefly absentmindedly.

Kairi continued. "This is my secret spot. I come here to get away from it all, to think, or maybe just to relax."

There was a short silence.

"You're the only one who knows about this place. I've never told anyone."

"Why would you share something so personal with me?"

Sora seemed to see where this was going. There was a hint of amusement in his voice.

Kairi blushed again but it was getting dark and she hoped that might hide it from Sora.

"Well, it's becauseā€¦. because I love you."

"I love you too Kairi."

Kairi turned to look at him. She could just see in the darkness that he was blushing too.

A firefly landed on the tip of Kairi's nose. Sora brushed it away. They both laughed slightly.

"Since you showed me something special to you, can I show you something of mine that's a little personal?"

Kairi nodded.

"Close your eyes," he said.

Kairi did as he said.

Sora thought how peaceful she looked. How peaceful this moment was.

He leaned closer to her and Kairi, sensing his body movement did the same. Their lips met. Kairi wrapped her arms securely around Sora's neck. After a minute, they pulled apart.

Kairi rested her head against Sora's chest. "Can you make me one promise Sora?"


"Will you promise to always be with me? No matter what I always want to be with you, even if you have to leave again."

"I will never leave you. Not again. I promise."

Kairi found Sora's hand and the two walked back to the house together.

Kairi belived Sora's promise. She knew he would never leave her again. That made her smile.
