One Year Later

"Kairi, wait up!" Selphie ran up to her and Kairi smiled at her. They walked along the dirt-ridden road together.

"Hey do you feel like going out to the island? Tidus and Wakka are all wrapped up in their ball game, and they won't go with me!"

"Not today, sorry." Kairi stopped walking.

"Aw, why not?"

"Do you remember those boys who used to hang out with us?"

"Riku?"

"Yeah."

"I wonder what ever happened to him. I sure miss him."

"He's far away, but I know we'll see him again."

"Sure, Of course we will."

"And the other boy?"

"What other boy?"

"The one who was with Riku and me all the time. We played together on that island. His voice always used to be there, but now it's gone. I can't think of his face, or his name. I feel awful about it. So I told myself, I'm not going to the island until I remember everything about him."

"Are you sure you didn't make him up?" Kairi nodded.

"Naminé?" She clutched her head as the voice reverberating through her mind.

"Naminé, what's happening to me?" The voice said. She spoke back hesitantly.

"Who are you? And that's not my name. I'm Kairi."

"Kairi? I know you. You're that girl he likes." Kairi's heart leapt.

"Who? Please a name!"

"I'm Roxas."

"Okay Roxas, but can you tell me his name?"

"You dont remember my name? Thanks alot, Kairi!" A different voice spoke now, a familiar one...She gasped.

"Okay, I guess I can give you a hint... starts with an 'S'."

"Are you okay?" She woke up. She was on the floor. She sat up and Selphie brushed off her back. Kairi stared at the island. She remembered. She grinned at Selphie and ran back to the island.


"Kairi?" Selphie asked. The waves crashed around Kairi's feet. She tapped her head knowingly and grabbed the bottled letter from her back, releasing it into the ocean.

"What's that?" Selphie asked.

"A letter...I wrote it yesterday... to the boy I can't remember. I said that no matter where he is, i'll find him, one day. And when I stopped writing, I remembered we'd made a promise... something important... this letter is where it starts I know it..."

"Wow, I hope he gets it."

"He will. Starts with an 'S'. Right...Sora?"
