Chapter 1: The Truth
"Sora, is something wrong?" I asked with concern. He looked up at me in surprise.
"Nah, nothing's wrong. Go back over by Namine. We're about to land." I saw a few tears escape his eyes as he turned his attention back to the front. I looked over at Roxas, who was giving me a "drop it" look. I sighed and plopped back down beside Namine; she was curled up next to Roxas.
"Don't look so down, Kairi. I'm sure it's nothing." Roxas rubbed my back as I let silent tears flow down my cheek. "Don't cry," he whispered, Sora looking back. I looked up at him, then at the floor.
"Kairi," Sora said, realizing what was happening. I quickly let my hand dry my eyes. Everything was all messed up since Riku went away. He's been gone for a month now. Sora was still shook up. I would have been too if my best friend in the whole wide world died right in my arms. I felt his pain, too, for Riku was like a big brother to me.
I stood up, ignoring Roxas's silent pleas. I walked up behind Sora, blushing. I have to do this. I just have to, I thought as I slid into the seat directly by him. This Gummy ship had a seat that could hold two people. "Sora," I said nervously. He gave me a look saying that I had his attention. He wasn't driving the ship like he normally did. Olette did now. She's the girl from Twilight Town. Pence and Hayner were also here. They were in the seats in front of us. "I'm sorry if I upset you or anything. I didn't realize that you and… well, I'm sorry, okay? I hate seeing you like this. It just… just… just…." I put my face in my hands, crying silently. I heard Sora let out a tiny gasp and felt those familiar blue eyes staring at me.
"It just… makes me s- so angry be- because I h- hurt you. Y- You're a won- wonderful guy, S- Sora," I hiccupped, a hand timidly being placed on my back. I looked up at him, his face only inches from mine. Here's your chance girl. Kiss him. I tried with all my strength to reach his lips, but I couldn't. My body wouldn't work right.
"Sora," a voice said, someone sitting down beside me. I glanced over at the person. It was Kairi. "I'm sorry if I upset you or anything. I didn't realize you and… well, I'm sorry, okay? I hate seeing you like this. It just… just… just…." She put her face in her hands and started crying. I gasped as my eyes locked on her shaking body. "It just… makes me s- so angry be- because I h- hurt you. Y- You're a won- wonderful guy, S- Sora," she cried as I timidly put my hand on her back, in hopes of comforting her. She looked up at me, her face now only inches away from mine.
Kiss the girl. Go on and kiss the girl, a voice said, my heart racing. Should I really kiss her? I mean, I love her with all my heart and soul, but does she feel the same way? I looked into her eyes, their intensity making me blush. Here goes nothing, I thought as I planted my lips on hers. I heard a muffled gasp escape her lips and readied myself for her to pull away then slap me.
To my surprise, she didn't move away. I was actually kissing her. I could clearly feel those ten eyes staring at me and her, but I didn't care. I was kissing Kairi, the girl that I'd risked my life to save. The girl who stole my heart and wouldn't give it back.
