Disclaimers: I don't own any material relating to Kingdom Hearts but these drabbles. This 50 drabbles challenge belongs to Terra ForceXIII.
A/N: Well, this is it… The last entry to Polar Reflections. ;-; Originally, this was going to be one of those ambigious POVs (where the reader picks if this is either from Sora's perspective or Vanitas's), but I failed at writing it because I was confusing myself. XD I just settled with what I was comfortable writing with, but I think it tried out even better! :) Had to play the kid!versions here because it just seemed right and IMO, a very sweet way of ending this altogether; especially when using the aspect of sleep. Think of it as…"dreaming of a new tomorrow!" …Yes, I am a sap. LOL
I have to say, my run with this drabble challenge was one of the best experiences I ever had. It really helped me explore that I can be funny if I tried, but best of all, I was able to entertain you guys and that's prize enough for me. ;) Seriously, thank you everyone who's been keeping up with this story. You have no idea how proud I am to have gathered an audience that enjoys my interpretation of what Sora and Vanitas would be like as brothers!

Thanks once again everybody! I hope you can enjoy this last chapter as I enjoyed writing it! ^^
:: Brothers ::
"…What are you doing?"
"I'm trying to sleep!"
"Yeah. In my bed." Vanitas frowned. Sora gave his twin the best puppy dog look he could muster…and Vanitas disliked him for it. Sighing, the raven haired twin caved, "Fine. But only for tonight."
A wide grin spread across the brunette's face as he hugged Vanitas. "Thank you!"
"…Off," Vanitas hinted.
Sora let out a small laugh while they divided the bed in equal halves. They stared at each other once they were lying down; entranced by the same face looking back at the other.
"Hey," Sora piped up during their unpronounced staring contest.
"Hmm?" Vanitas replied; his eyes half-lidded with sleep.
It took a moment for Sora to formulate his question. "You and I… We'll be together forever, right?"
The question was quite deep and Vanitas didn't know what to say, but somehow…he felt what the right answer would be. Uncharacteristically, he took Sora's right hand with his own right hand and their joined palms stayed between them on the pillow. The brunette curiously eyed his twin and saw a rare smile play across Vanitas's face.
"No matter what happens…I'll always be there for you." Vanitas answered.
Slowly, Sora returned the smile and nodded. As they let sleep take over their tired forms, Sora gave out his own reply, "I'll be there for you too, Vani."
"Promise, Sora…?" Vanitas let out before drifting to sleep.
"I will." Sora yawned, following after his twin. "You and I are brothers…until the very end…"
