Warnings: Nothing other than massive fluff.
Pairings: Zack/Sora. Yeah, I know.
Sassy's Note: I'm not sure how long this will go on, but expect at least a few semi-drabbles.
Sora lay in his bed, tossing and turning. He couldn't sleep. Kingdom Hearts forbid he have at least one peaceful night. He was tangled in his sheets and couldn't for the life of him get comfortable.
With an aggravated huff, he sat up and stubbornly kicked the sheets away. He blinked around the dark room slowly. He was completely alone. Honestly, that was probably why he couldn't sleep.
He reached behind himself for his phone and flipped it open. No new messages or missed calls. Damn it. He set it down again and rested his head in his hands. This had to stop. He had to sleep. Four restless hours a night just wasn't cutting it, and his friends were beginning to notice the toll it was taking on him.
Worrying his bottom lip with his teeth, he picked his phone up again and, slowly, began scrolling through his address book. He reached the entry he'd been looking for – the last entry – and his thumb paused over the call button.
He stayed frozen like that for what seemed to be an eternity, eyes locked on the name of the phone screen. He wanted to call, knew there would be no problem if he called, but… He flipped the phone shut, threw it on the pillow, and let out a frustrated noise.
He went through this almost every night, and no matter how many times he would pause over the call button, he knew he would never actually call. He didn't want to be an inconvenience, especially not at this hour.
But he really couldn't deal with this anymore. He was exhausted, and even when he was asleep, he was dreaming almost frantically about a pair of violet eyes framed in black hair. This wasn't necessarily a bad thing, but it was frustrating, especially since Sora couldn't do anything about it.
Well… he could, but he had a feeling doing something like that wouldn't be very good. At least in the end.
Somehow, though, it was almost worth it in his mind.
Sora didn't manage very much sleep that night. Not that he'd expected to, but it turned out to be one of his rougher nights.
And that was saying something.
He yawned widely and fell back against the warm sand, squeezing his eyes closed. He'd be alone today, but that was entirely his choice. In fact, he'd had to work harder to be alone. Kairi and Riku both knew there was something bothering him recently, and they seemed determined to help him at all costs. As much as Sora loved human interaction, he needed his alone time.
He pulled out his cell phone and checked to see if he'd had any new messages or missed calls, sighing when there was none and pocketing it again. He stretched his hands over his head and let his body relax, feeling himself becoming drowsy. Lack of sleep catching up with him, he let out a breath and settled more deeply against the sand. Within minutes, he felt himself falling asleep.
It was right as he was hovering in blissful pre-unconsciousness that his phone finally let out a chime. It just so happened to be the chime Sora had been waiting for. Hence why he was fully awake in two seconds flat and yanking his phone back out. 1 New Message. He flipped the phone open.
Hey there, Prince. From Zack. Sora sagged back against the sand and laughed. Finally… he wasn't forgotten. Unreasonable fear as he knew it was, it still loomed over him far more often than he – or Zack – liked.
He typed his reply – a standard 'hey' – and closed his phone, waiting intently on the next message, and when the phone chimed, he jumped to read it.
Chu! Hey, do me a favor?
Sora, a bit confused and intrigued, responded, 'Uh, sure.'
In less than a minute, he got his reply, and the smile splitting his face was brighter than it had been in a long time. He kissed his phone before shoving it in his pocket, rising to his feet, and sprinting across the sand, while the message rested in his inbox awaiting his reply.
Get some sleep tonight, babe.
Sassy: All these will more or less be based off true events. Ja? Ja. I know the pairing is weird, but it has it's reasons.
