Talent Show: Part 2
Soraand Roxas got home. Roxas headed to their room immediately. Once Sora entered their room, Roxas was at his bed and the song "Just So You Know" was playing.
"Rox? I thought you already wanted to go to sleep." Sora said and sat beside Roxas.
"I do, but something's been bugging my mind." Roxas said calmly.
"What is it?" Sora asked with a lot of concern.
"I was wondering, who did you dedicate your song to?"
"Oh you know… it's just something that I decided to sing." Sora said, feeling uneasy.
"I'm sure that's not your reason. Now tell me." Roxas said in a straight tone.
"Why do you need to know?"
"Because I'm your brother!" Roxas said irritated. "No secrets!"
"Fine!" Sora merely shouted. "I'll tell you mine, if you tell me yours."
"What?!" Roxas looked at Sora in disbelief. "I asked you first. It's not fair."
"If you don't want to, then don't." Sora said calmly. "It's fine by me, but I'm telling you that as long as you're not telling me your special someone, I won't tell you mine." Sora was about to stand up when Roxas knelt in front of him.
"Pwease Sowa… pwease… pweety pweeaseee!!!" Roxas pouted.
"No Roxie. Not unless you do my condition."
Roxas sighed. He brought his head up to Sora, their lips were only centimeters away and said, "There's no point in making this a puzzle so I'll give it to you straight." Roxas kissed Sora full on the lips. "I love you Sora, very much and more than a twin brother should."
Sora was shocked with what happened so he couldn't say anything. Roxas was about to kiss Sora again but Sora pulled back. "What are you doing?! You do know that SORA's the one in front of you and not your special someone."
"I know… and you are my special someone." Roxas said in a low voice.
"But you can't love me!" Sora protested. "That's impossible!"
"But I do!" Roxas exclaimed. "Why won't you believe me?"
"Because…" Sora started to cry. Roxas wrapped his arms around Sora waist. "Roxie, you can't love me. You just can't."
"I know you think that this is wrong, but for me it is right. I really wanted US to happen."
"US?" Sora looked up at Roxas.
"Yes, I wanted US to happen. At first, I didn't want to tell you this. But the more I kept it to myself, the more it hurts me inside." Roxas's eyes began to puddle. Sora hugged Roxas and the tears from Roxas's eyes fell uncontrollably.
"Well…" Roxas said straightening himself. "Now that I've told you my secret, you can now tell me yours." Sora didn't say anything, instead he leaned up and kissed Roxas. Roxas kissed back but pulled away immediately and said, "Don't kiss me, Sora."
"Why?" Sora sounded hurt.
"Because I'm not the one for you."
"But you are!" Sora shouted. "You are my special someone…" He said softly.
"If I am, then why didn't you believe when I told you I love you?" Roxas asked. Sora flinched at the word.
"Because… I told you, it's impossible."
"In my world… anything's possible." Roxas smiled. "Okay, how 'bout your song, what's up with that?"
"At first I was kinda hurt that you already found the person you love the most. But then, I told myself that I won't give up that easily. I wouldn't let that person beat me into getting your love." Sora said. Roxas stood up and sat beside Sora. "I heard Just So You Know playing on MTV one night and found out that that was the perfect song for me."
"I shouldn't love you but I want to, I should see you but I can't look away. I shouldn't love you 'cause you're my brother but it just feels good to do so."
"Is that why you cried the night I told you I'm gonna sing for my special someone?"
"I didn't cry!" Sora said defensively.
"I heard you."
Sora blushed. "Well… It hurts, Rox. And it's not only about your special someone but it's also about you leaving me alone, singing all by myself."
"I'm sorry." Roxas wrapped an arm around Sora. "You know… I kinda felt sad when I heard you cry."
"Really, why didn't you tell me?" Sora looked at Roxas.
"Because I'm afraid of what you'll say if you found out that I was eavesdropping on you." Sora laughed at this. Roxas sighed. "If only I told you this sooner."
"Don't worry Rox, it's okay. As long as we're both happy now, everything's alright."
Roxas kissed Sora and said, "I love you." Sora shivered at that.
"I love you Sora."
"Sora, I love you." Roxas shook Sora lightly but still he doesn't say anything. "Come on Sora, you know the words."
"I know, I'm just nervous and… shy to say it."
Roxas smirked. He kissed Sora and whispered in his ear, "I love you."
"I love you Roxie…" Sora whispered.
"What was that?"
"I love you…" Sora whispered again.
"I can't hear you…" Roxas said cutely.
Sora sighed. "I love you Roxas!"
Roxas grinned and said "So much."
"You know what other talent I got?"
"Yup… It's your ability to LOOOVE your own brother…" Sora and Roxas laughed.
