LalaHachi: You can skip the first part with this kind of text cuz it's just the thing they say in the beginning of the movie :O


"Once upon a time in a far away land a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything he's heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish and unkind. But then, one winter's night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed from her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away. But she warned him not be deceived by appearances for beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman's ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The prince tried to apologize but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart. And he's punishment; she transformed him into a hideous beast and pleased a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there. Ashamed of his monstrous form, the beast concealed himself inside the castle with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose which would bloom until his twenty-first year. If he could learn to love another and earn his love in return by the time the last pedal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, then he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he fell into despair and lost all hope. For who could ever learn to love a beast?"

"Stupid story if you ask me…" My cousin said and shrugged. Why is he here? And why did he bring Riku? If they're going to ditch the stuff I read and then try to undress each other in public and make out, they. Can. Go. HOME!

"Well, I didn't ask you, did I?" I replied as I glared at them, sitting in the couch, entangled.

"Hey, take it easy! You're just jealous because I have a boyfriend and you don't!" Sora said and stuck out his tongue before starting to make out with Riku again.

"Of course I am… I'd love to not be able to walk for a week every time-" I started but got interrupted.

"SHUT UP!" Sora screamed and threw a pillow at me.

"It's true!" I said and shrugged, physically enjoying pissing him off this way.

Sora shot death glares towards me. "Why can't you just get together with Setzer? We know he likes you!" Sora said and sighed.

At this point I had decided to ignore them and leave the shop with my newfound book.

I heard a "Hey!" from Sora as they got up and started walking after me.

I was busy reading the book and almost didn't notice that I walked into something. Or in this case someone. Setzer.

"What are you reading?" He asked and snatched the book away from me.

"An old folktale. Now give it back!" I stated and started reaching for the book.

"You shouldn't read that when you can be with-" He threw the book away and placed his mouth next to my ear. "-me."

I jumped away from him and rubbed the ear he had been so close too. "I prefer reading…" I mumbled and sneaked pass him. I snatched the book back to me and started walking away.

"You do know what people are saying about you behind your back?" He asked and I stopped walking.

I turned around and looked questioning at him. "What?" I asked and frowned.

"They say you're wasting that good looks on something as silly as reading. And I agree!" He said and forcefully grabbed my chin, making me face him. "Even your cousin agrees with them!" He said and smiled before crushing his lips to mine. I immediately struggled to get him off me. It was useless. He had pinned me towards a wall. After what seemed to be an eternity of trying to escape and denying Setzers tongue entrance he let me go.

I glared at him and grabbed my book, while leaving the smirking Setzer to just be plain evil.

"Am I really that weird, Kairi?" I asked the woman cooking.

"What? No, you're perfectly normal!" She said but it didn't sound that convincing.

"It's just that… there's no one here I can talk too…" I sighed and glared over at my cousin and his boyfriend making out.

"Really? No one?" Kairi said and frowned. "What about Setzer? He's… Handsome…" She mumbled while tasting whatever she was making.

I shivered in disgust. "No!" I simply said while lots of pictures popped into my head. Oh the nightmares I'd be having.

"Oh come on, Rox! He really likes you!" Sora said as he and Riku passed them towards the bedroom.

Oh how I hate living with these people. The only thing they do is sleeping with each other.

"What's up, Rox?" Hayner greeted me as he went up to Kairi and kissed her. Kairi giggled and fed him a spoon of… Eh… Soup, I guess.

"Oh nothing…" I muttered as I stalked back to my room. The most annoying thing with this is that I'm the only single one in this house. The others are dating each other.

Riku dates Sora, Hayner dates Kairi and Pence dates Olette. Oh, how I hate this.

Oh I almost forgot (don't ask me how), my little sister lives here too and she's single. I hope. Naminé. God, do I love that little princess. I'd do anything for her. That's the only reason I stay in this town, in this house.

My room looked precisely like it did when I left it. Clean and a bed ready for me to sleep in. The best room a fifteen year old book worm can wish for.

I undressed and laid down in the bed. 'I hate that stupid Setzer…' I thought as I felt my eyelids get heavy and my mind wonder away to the land of dreams.

"Wake up, Roxy!" Sora yelled next to my ear. I jumped up and threw my pillow at him.

"Take it easy Rox!" Hayner said and grinned at me. He was standing in the doorway with an arm wrapped around Kairi's waist. Why were they even here? Couldn't they just let me sleep? Oh well, I'm sure they had there reason.

"Get out of here!" I screamed while jumping out of the bed and glaring threatfully at them. They left me to get dressed.

"Oh yeah! Naminé is out riding her horse!" Sora said before closing the door.

Oh great, now I'm going to worry about her the whole day!

I looked through my wardrobe but found it almost empty. Just my nice pair of jeans and a shirt left. 'Oh well' I thought as I put them on.

When I entered the kitchen, I noticed that something was wrong. First of all, Setzer was there. Second of all, Setzers stuff was there and third the other ones were smiling goofy at me.

"What's going on here?" I asked as I approached the table.

"Well, Setzer's moving in with you!" Kairi squealed and smiled at me.

"He's… WHAT?" I screamed. I'm sure they think they're doing the right thing, but they're not.

Setzer smirked while taking another sip of his coffee.

"Well, we know that you like him…" Sora started.

"I DO NOT LIKE HIM!!" I screamed as I moved towards the door. I had to get out of there before it went too far. "I'm leaving and when I come back, EVERYTHING THAT HAS TO DO WITH HIM BETTER BE GONE!!" I screamed as I slammed the door.

I wasn't completely sure where I was going, just somewhere away.

"The nerve of them… The nerve of HIM… Can you believe that?" I had now started talking to a black cat. The cat just looked up at me and blinked. "I mean, seriously! Do they really think I'll agree to this?" The cat watched me as I paced around. It looked somewhat amused. "Can you imagine ME being as lovey-dovey as the others with HIM?" I complained loudly. "Me, being a little boy toy… No, never! Sora and the others might want that life but I don't! I want a more exciting life! Not just this… this… provincial life! No, I want something else! Something more!" I exclaimed and sighed as I sat down on the meadow full of flowers and closed my eyes. And that's when the first tear escaped my eye. I quickly wiped it away and promised myself not to cry anymore. The cat came up to me and stroked itself against my leg. I scratched it behind its ear. We sat like that for a while, me and the cat. Then a loud noise scared the cat away. I looked towards the source of the noise and saw Naminés horse come running. Without Naminé.

"Hey, take it easy!" I screamed as I ran up to it and tried to calm it down. The horse seemed quite scared. The question was of what? "Where's Naminé?" I screamed and the horse seemed to understand what I was saying. Hell of a smart horse.

It motioned further away on the road.

"Take me there!" I ordered as I got up on the horse. "Run! Run like hell!" I said to the horse that reluctantly started running.

My sweet innocent Naminé. What could have happened?

The horse stopped harshly right in front a pair of gates that seemed to lead to a castle. I stepped down from the horse that immediately ran away. So now I was alone.

"Meow." I heard from behind me. The black cat was standing there, looking at me.

"Hello, cat! Care to join me?" I asked as I opened the gates and walked inside, through an overgrown garden, towards the castle. The cat followed me. I stopped and looked up at the big door. This is it. I pushed it open and walked inside. It was dark inside. And empty. I swallowed my fears and started walking inside.

"Naminé?" I called out. "Naminé??"

Suddenly I heard something. I walked towards the source and saw a stair. I heard another noise that seemed to be coming from somewhere above me and so I walked up the stairs into a big dark room.

"Naminé?" I called out.

"Roxas?" I heard Naminés voice from a cell in what I now saw was a dungeon. "Oh my god, Roxas! You have to get out!"

"I'm not leaving without you!" I stated and started shaking the bars that separated me from my sister.

"Oh, would you look what the cat dragged in… Another intruder!" I heard a voice from behind me.

"Please! Whoever you are! Please let my sister go!" I pleaded.

"She's an intruder. She has to stay here!" The person hiding in the dark stated.

"Please!" I begged.

"No."

"Please? Take me instead!" I bargained.

"Hmm…" The person purred. "Do you promise you'll stay here forever?"

I hesitated for a moment. "… Yes." I said and gulped. "Please, let her go now…"

The person opened the cell and let out my sister. She immediately ran up to me and clung to my arm. In the dim light, I took a good look at the person. It wasn't really a man; it was more like a monster. A wolf like creature on two legs. With fangs. A beast. I shivered in fright of the thought that I was going to stay here. But better me then my sister.

"What are you?" I asked as I embraced my sister.

"Does it really matter?" The beast asked and raised an eyebrow.

"Guess not…" I said as I let Naminé go. "Naminé, promise to be a nice girl…" I whispered as tears rolled down my cheeks.

"I promise…" She whispered and looked at me. "I want you to come home with me, big brother."

"I can't. But Kairi will take good care of you, I promise." I sobbed.

The beast had somewhat gotten enough and picked up Naminé and carried her away. "No!" I screamed as I watched through the window how the beast put her in a carriage that drove towards the village. I cried more then ever as the beast came up again.

"Come here and I'll show you to your room!" The beast said.

"What?" I asked. I had assumed I would be staying in the dungeon like my sister had.

"What? You want to stay here?" He asked and raised an eyebrow.

"No… But-" I started but was interrupted.

"Then COME!" He muttered. I followed him down the stair and away.

"I hope you'll like it here." He mumbled as we walked through the dark corridors. "The castle is your home now, so you can go wherever you want… Except for the west wing." He said and smiled at me.

"What's in the west-" I started but was interrupted.

"It's just forbidden, okay?" He said lazily and yawned. "You will join me for supper soon… And that's not a request!" The beast said as he closed the door behind me.

My room. A large bed. A balcony. A pink wardrobe. No books. How would I ever survive?
