…When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you—
Roxas's ear phones was yanked off his ears, sending him and his iPod to the ground. "Aww… that hurt." Roxas scrunched his eyes in pain. He quickly grabbed his iPod, managed a glimpse on what hit him.
Apparently the thing that hit him was not a 'thing' but a person. Roxas remained immobile on his place, feeling a sense of déjà vu kick in. He continued to stare at the feet in front of him until a hand was stretched out for him.
"I'm so sorry about that. I wasn't paying attention to where I was going." The voice laughed. And then it hit him. One laugh. That's all it took for Roxas to risk a look at his offender and gasped.
"S-S-Sora?" Roxas stuttered. He placed his hand on Sora's hand and pulled himself up. "Sora? When did you get back? Why didn't you call us? Is something wrong? Did something happen to you—?"
Roxas was cut off when a hand was placed in front of him. "Take it easy there, man. One question at a time. It's not like the sun's going to fall on you if you don't hurry up." Sora playfully punched Roxas's shoulder.
"Sora?" Roxas rubbed his abused arm.
"By the way, the name's Sky." Sora held out his hand the second time that day. "Sky Milton."
"Sora?" Roxas stared at the boy in complete awe. "S-sora…" He stuttered. Roxas stared at the person in front of him, observing him and examining him.
Same baby blue eyes. Same spiky hair. Same sun-kissed skin and same gullible smile.
"Sora come on… Stop messing with me." Roxas smile, expecting Sora to burst out and say, 'Ha! Got you! :P', but he didn't.
"I'm not messing with you, dude. My name really is Sky Milton." 'Sora' said.
"But you…" Roxas sighed. "Never mind. I've must've mistaken you for someone else." Roxas smiled apologetically at the boy and turned on his heel. "But of course…" Roxas was stopped when a hand was placed on his shoulder. "I'll always be Sora Ichigawa-Yamamoto to my one and only, koibito."
Roxas looked back at the person behind him and smiled, his eyes glistening with tears. Sora pulled his koibito into a tight hug and buried his face on Roxas's arms.
"Roxas…" Sora cried. "Roxas… I'm back. I'm finally back, like I promised."
Roxas didn't say anything. Instead he tightened his arms around Sora's body and kissed the top of his head. "Sora…"
"Sky…" Sora corrected.
"Sky?" Roxas raised a brow.
"But how…" But before Roxas could finish his sentence, Sora cut him off. "What do you say we take this conversation to a bowl of Beef Ramen noodles? I'm starving."
Roxas laughed. Now this is the Sora I know.
"By the way" Sora took Roxas's hand. "I'm sorry for the way I acted earlier. I guess I've gotten use to acting like that during my stay in New Jersey."
"Nahh, it's okay. It's cool you know." Roxas smiled.
"Naaaah. I think, I'll stick with being my good happy-go-lucky self." Sora smiled. "It kind of itches my nose to act all hip and cool, you know?" Roxas laughed and dragged Sora to the nearest Ramen shop.
"So tell me, how in the world did you become Sky Milton after staying in New Jersey for almost 5 years?" Roxas asked as the chef placed their order in front of them.
"Well…" Sora began and slurped some noodle. "After finishing college , I immediately had a stable job as an interior designer in the state. Later on I become very famous in Jersey because not only was my works good, but I was also the youngest designer ever to be sent to design for the Queen of England's room."
"Show off." Roxas rolled his eyes. "And the last part was most certainly not true."
"I can dream, can't I?." Sora laughed and took a forkful of noodles in his mouth. "But I do wish it would happen someday."
"I'm sure it will." Roxas smiled. "With your skills, personality and good looks…" Sora blushed at this. "Anything is possible."
"Shut up." Sora rolled his eyes but laughed nevertheless. "Anyway, since I've managed to earn lots of money because of my job, I decided to change my name."
Roxas raised his brow at Sora but didn't say anything. "It would take lots of pennies to change your name, but I did anyway because I know it'll be something worth it."
"Worth it?" Roxas brow furrowed. "How's spending huge money on your name worth while, Sora?"
"I get to be with the one person I cherish the most, Rox." Sora smiled. He cupped Roxas's cheek. "You. My koibito." Roxas felt his right lip twitch. "You did all of these for me?"
Roxas smiled. "So…Now what?" He said, utterly lost for the right words.
"Well…" Sora took Roxas's hand. "That's up to you."
"Me?" Roxas asked.
"Uh-huh." Sora squeezed Roxas's hand. "It's either you take me back as your lover or you take me back to mom and be your brother again."
"Now why would I take you back as my brother, Sor." Roxas squeezed Sora's hand. "After all you've been through to get us back together? After all the years I've been anxiously waiting for your arrival at our front door? I don't think so." Roxas smirked and leaned in.
"No, not here." Sora slightly pushed Roxas away.
"Why not?" Roxas leaned again but was stopped by Sora.
"People are staring." Sora looked back at the people passing by who were giving them odd looks.
"So?" Roxas leaned again, this time pinning Sora's arms on his side and plated a firm but sweet kiss on Sora's lips. "I love you." Roxas whispered in Sora's ears.
Sora pulled away slightly from Roxas embrace and cupped the blonde's cheek. "I love you, too." He caressed Roxas's cheek with his thumb.
"So I trust you'd be able to stay with me now no matter what happens right?" Roxas said cutely.
"Yup. Forever." Sora smiled and sealed a kiss on Roxas's sweet lips.
