Chapter 1: Lost
I went to sleep in my bed… in my house.
But I didn't wake up there.
I was in a rusted, rat infested, old shack – but something in my heart believed I have been here before.
Not much was in the shack… All that was there were, one bed (the one I woke up on), a broken TV, A beaded necklace, a child's dress and a picture of a lady.
That lady looked rich… but something was missing.
There was a ripped piece of the photo on her left side. A place where a child could fit.
I decided to go outside, to see if I was still in Twilight Town. But to my 'surprise' I wasn't.
The shack I stepped out of was located in the bottom of a canyon, a bright yellow canyon scattered with rocks, dirt, and more rocks.
I though I might as well go explore this land, trying to find any living creature or thing.
But as I started to walk towards an opening in the canyon wall, someone attacked me from behind.
I turned around to see a big white thing with mysterious purple markings holding a type of hammer-like weapon.
When I asked to find a living creature or thing… I didn't mean this!
It swung at me and hit me until I fell to the ground. I couldn't do anything to protect myself.
I was really scared, I was practically frozen on floor, but my instincts told me to fight. I was the 'Struggle competition champion' at home, so I should be able to fight.
The thing came charging towards me. I closed my eyes and swung my fists as hard as I could.
Then there was nothing but complete and utter silence.
At that moment I opened my eyes to find that the thing was gone and I had a… a… A GIGANTIC KEY IN MY HANDS!
As I examined it, it vanished into thin air.
When I finally made my way through the canyon passage I immediately focused my eyes on balloons, ferris wheels, food stalls and… OTHER PEOPLE!
"Hello?" a random girl jumped in front of me.
This girl had short black hair, a green headband around her forehead, a short black shirt with white flower patterns and a short black jacket over. She also wore short cream coloured pants with a black layer over the top, and huge knee length black socks with long cream coloured boots.
"Would you like some cotton candy?" She asked, "Oh sorry, my name is Yuffie and I wanted to know if you would like some cotton candy from my dad's shop… It is only 7 munny!"
"Hi Yuffie… I'm Roxas. I… ummm… would love some cotton candy but I, well, don't have any munny."
"Why would you come to a fair without munny?" Yuffie joked around.
I don't like sarcasm. "I am actually lost." I replied.
"You're such a joker… come over here."
"This is Leon. This is Aerith. This is Cid. And last, and of course least, this is Cloud." Yuffie introduced.
"Who's this guy?" Leon asked in a lifeless voice.
"I am Ro…" I tried to answered, but Yuffie interrupted me and blurted, "He is Roxas! He forgot to bring his munny and he is 'lost'. Jokes… Well, I decided he should join us. His parents wouldn't mind! I hope… hehe"
"Hey let's go on a carnival ride!" Aerith suggested.
"HELL YEAH!" Cid replied.
"I am going on the motorbike rollercoaster!" Cloud declared.
"We will all go on the same one!" Yuffie screeched like a happy school girl, "First we will go on the motorbike rollercoaster for Cloud, the blind slide for me, Aerith's fav – The log ride, the haunted house for Cid, whatever Roxas wants then Cid's favourite – the tea cup ride!"
"HEY!" Cid nudged Yuffie.
"Okay then, the kaleidoscope looking bumper cars."
"They do not look like kaleidoscopes!"
First we went on the motorbike rollercoaster, Yuffie paid for me.
After it was done… We headed straight for the bumper cars.
Then the blind slide, then the log ride, then the haunted house… BLAH BLAH BLAH.
And when it was my turn to pick a ride, another girl joined us.
She had the prettiest blond hair I have ever seen, the most gorgeous blue eyes and a plain white dress with blue flip flops.
"Namin'e you're finally here!"
After we rode all the rides, we decided to go and have cotton candy, and sodas.
"Sorry, I don't eat cotton candy, remember Yuffie?"
"Oh yeah… You can have your favourite."
"Sea salt ice-cream!" The three girls said at the same time… in the same tone.
The food was delicious. The group tried to get me into their conversations but I kept on zoning out. I was having visions of a little boy, crying, calling out stuff like "MUM!" "LET ME GO!" and "DON'T HURT HER!"
I finally stopped having visions when I heard five particular words…
"Let's" "Play" "Spin" "The" "Bottle"
"Does everyone know how to play?" Yuffie asked.
Everyone replied saying, "Yes." But that was no use.
"I will say the rules anyway. I will spin first, if it lands on a girl, I kiss them on the cheek. And if it lands on boy, I kiss them on the lips. The next person to spin will be on my left… And so on. And if it is a boy's turn, they do the same, but… they kiss girls on the mouth and boys on the cheek."
So Yuffie had the first spin. It was exciting to watch but every time the front of the bottle spun towards me, I felt queasy.
The bottle was getting slower and slower… but then it fell on… CID!
Cid was sitting directly in front of Yuffie, so Yuffie leaned over the table and kissed Cid. I was beside Cid, so I had the worst view ever.
It was now Aerith's turn.
Round and round the bottle spun, until it stopped on Namin'e… but then the wind blew it slightly so it turned to Leon.
Aerith x Leon… Smoochie Smoochie… lol.
"Oooooooooooooooo." Yuffie cooed.
"Shut up." Leon pouted.
Now it was Namin'e's turn.
Spin a spinny spin spin the bottle went.
And… It… Landed… On… ME!
I have never kissed a girl before!
Her gentle lips went on mine, and it felt like 5 seconds in heaven.
"Okay, after one hour of playing… I kissed six people. Namin'e kissed five people. Aerith kissed six people. Cloud kissed five people. Cid kissed five people. Roxas kissed four people. And Leon kissed a whopping twelve people!" Yuffie puffed.
"As a tradition…" Namin'e giggled.
"The winner gets too…" Aerith giggled even louder.
"Throw three eggs…" Yuffie tried to keep the laughter in.
"At the loser!" Cid, Leon and Cloud shouted in a funny way.
After the egg throwing… the fair was over. And we promised to meet back at the fair tomorrow.
I kind of liked my 'new life'.
The others reminded me of Hayner, Pence and Olette.
I walked back to my so called, 'new scrappy home' to try and find something to do.
As I expected, nothing.
"Roxas?" The sweet voice of Namin'e called.
"Namin'e?" I called back.
"Is this your house?"
"I guess so."
"Hey… can I stay for a while. My parents are coming back to town in one week. I just got a text. So is it possible that I can stay here for a day or two?"
"It isn't really a good house… you can say I have no parents to look after me."
"Oh… That is okay."
Then we both went inside my shack.
"This place could have a bit of a make-over." Namin'e said in a calm whisper.
"Hey, do you want to walk to my place to get some paint, and some tools? My dad is a painter and my mum is a carpenter. So I know a lot."
"It is a twenty minute walk, and a ten minute sprint."
We got back to my house with, two paint brushes, one ultra-quick drying pink paint and ultra-quick drying florescent blue paint. Oh yeah, and an inflatable bed.
"If we start the walls now, we can go for a little jog then start the floors." Namin'e cheered.
"Pink walls and blue floors… Okay!"
We covered the walls with pink, and then we went outside.
"I want to try something Roxas… Close your eyes."
I closed my eyes.
Then something pushed against my lips and once I realized what it was… I screeched, "A PAINTBRUSH!"
Author's notes: Hope you liked that chapter! I thought I could call it, I am lost but I like it. But I just called it LOST…
Roxas: Yeah! Please review.
Namin'e: This is not a one shot, so…
Jalooloo: Put it on alert too!
