Hi! If you've seen my profile you'll have seen that I love Tidus so I thought I'd finally write one with him with an important role and where you get to see his POV. Enjoy!
Oh, and I don't own Kingdom Hearts or anything at all that you recognize from outside my stories.
I guess I realized my feelings for him the day after he returned to the Islands. It was a normal day. I was practicing on the deck of the half-ship where I normally was when I saw two figures appear and fall from the sky. I recognized one instantly. The other took me a few seconds to recognize as I was too busy thinking about how much the first grown. I rushed off to find Selphie and Wakka straight away.
Ten minutes later, we walked onto the beach where there was a strange red ship just setting off. The strangest thing about it though was that it was in midair. The other two couldn't seem to see it though, which puzzled me. I mean, how could you miss that ship?
"Hi guys!" Selphie shouted, making Kairi jump. They turned and saw us, smiling and waving. Even Riku. I was so sure that that guy never smiled. I guess you learn something new every day.
"Where have you been?" I asked.
"Oh, here and there." Sora replied cryptically. "I see your not not asking for a spar straight away as you used to."
"That's because you've been gone for a year and a half! You left without any notice too!"
"Sorry about that."
"So, how about that spar then?"
"You're on. Meet here, tomorrow at noon. It's late and I left my sword at home." I wasn't sure but I thought I saw Riku give Sora an amused face. That was new too.
"Sure!" I decided to forget about that look. It was probably just because they were glad to be home. Still, I couldn't help but feel a pang of jealousy. But why? "You know, you got lucky. You got here on the first day of the Summer break."
The next day came quickly. I got up at seven, as normal, and got ready to go. I liked to be able to use the full day so I didn't really ever have lie ins or late nights. I got to the island more than an hour early, but I was surprised to find Sora's boat already there. I then saw a patch of ice. Tiny, but still there. I was curious so I looked around the little island. The last place I checked was the secret place. The walls had a lot of ice on them as well as scorch marks. I walked down the passage towards the main part of the cave, ducking when a fireball flew at me. Wait, what? A fireball? Now I was confused, scared and curious, a fairly lethal combination. I crept towards the cave where I saw Sora, wielding what looked to be a giant key. I gasped. He must have heard as just then he turned around, looking straight at me.
"Don't worry Tidus. Come over here and I'll tell you about this. If you promise not to tell anyone else."
"Right. First things first, this is called a Keyblade. Riku and Kairi both have one as well. Secondly, while we were away, we were traveling around differant worlds fighting things called Heartless and Nobodies. The ice you see, as well as the scorch marks, are caused by magic which all Keyblade wielders can use, along with other people, and finally, that red ship is called a gummi ship. It's one of the two things that can take you to differant worlds. Ask Riku if you want to know about the other way, he's the expert in that method."
I didn't know whether to believe him or not. I probably wouldn't have if it wasn't for the fireball and ice. The story was just too far-fetched. I ran out of the secret place.
"Tidus!" I yelled. Great. Now he was going to think I was insane. Either that or he was going to ask Kairi and Riku if the story was true. I decided to help him a little, at least with the second thing. I called Riku, asking him to meet Tidus at the pier. Then I asked Kairi to do the same.
Five minutes later, I arrived at the pier on the mainland. I could see him talking to Riku and Kairi, talking to them. I docked and tied up my boat. Then I walked up to Tidus.
"Still in disbelief?" I asked.
"No." he replied.
"Sora, you should have asked us if you could tell him." Kairi said to me. I noticed she was holding hands with Riku.
"He walked in on me practicing magic! What else could I do?" I complained. "So are you two together or something?" I asked, change the subject.
"You noticed. I thought you would be too dense to." Riku commented.
"I'm not dense!"
"You are a little Sora." Tidus said. I looked at him and realized how much he'd grown. He was now a little taller than me, his hair was a dark blond colour and had really nice muscles. Wait, where did that last thought come from? I did not have a crush on Tidus!
"So, Sora. Are you still up to that fight?"
"You bet. And don't worry, I won't use the Keyblade or magic. Riku, will you judge?"
"Let's head back to the island then!"
When we were talking, I found myself shocked at how much he'd grown. He was taller, had a nice slim build and a really cute pair of eyes...wait! Where were these thoughts coming from? He was not in love with Sora! And yet, whenever he looked at me, my heart melted. I couldn't help it!
So when we fought, I was too distracted to focus on the fight. He defeated he easily. Then again, he did disarm me before I got distracted so I was mostly just trying to dodge his attacks for the entire fight. He did seem to be going easy on me as well. I figured that out when Riku asked Sora if he'd hurt himself. He was good. Too good would be what I would have said if I hadn't found out about the last year and a half.
Anyway, when we were done, he healed me with some more magic. Then we spent the rest of the day walking about the Island, them telling me about their adventures. I wasn't too surprised when I heard about Riku being a villain at first but it was really good to get his opinion of the story. Kairi had lost her heart for that part too so we didn't get much from her. Then she was on the Island so we already knew what she had to say. They also told me how they got their Keyblades. Then I finally asked a question that had been bugging me since I found out about all this stuff.
"Hey guys, do you think I could ever get a Keyblade?"
"Who knows? Try and summon one. Just picture it."
"Here goes." I pictured one, like Sora's, in my hand. Suddenly, I felt something in my hand. It was a keyblade. It was longer than Sora's and bright red with purple streaks. The end had three largish spikes on one side and two smaller ones on the other. At the end was a small sphere. "Wow!" Was all I could say.
"So, what's it called? Mine's Kingdom Key, Kairi's is Sweet Memories and Riku's is A Way to the Dawn."
"Blade of Justice" I replied instantly. I had no Idea where the name came from but I decided to stick with it.
"Nice. By the way, what's your opinion of me Tidus?"
"Um, we-well y-your a ver-er-ery ni-i-ce p-p-ers-so-on and..."
"Don't lie Tidus. You've always been terrible. Besides, I know, and I love you too."
I gasped. Was I really that obvious? And did he really say that? "Wait, I thought you love Kairi."
"I do but more as a sister than a girlfriend. Besides, I'm gay." I gasped. I never expected him to be that open. Then I ran up to him and hugged him. Them I planted a kiss on his cheek.
"I'm glad." I whispered into his ear. We were about to kiss properly but at that exact moment a spotlight shone down on us. We looked up, cringing from the light.
"Sora, Kairi, Riku! We need you!" came a voice.
"Do you want to come with us?" Sora asked.
"And be separated from you if I don't? Of course I'll come." The ship landed and the four of us walked towards it. Sora kissed my cheek.
"Don't ever leave me." he pleaded.
"Don't worry. I won't." I replied as we headed into the ship, on our way to new adventures with our new found loves.
That's Chapter 1 done. I hope you enjoyed.
