Disclaimer: I do not own anything from Kingdom Hearts but these ficlets. All one hundred of them. Yeah… This particular 100 Theme Challenge belongs to Iggy'sGirl15.

A/N: So crazy me found another theme challenge and it's been untouched! Huzzah! XD LOL In any case, since there wasn't a word count restriction, I made one for myself (because without one, I will ramble on forever and this challenge will never get finished :P): The minimum is 250 words with the maximum being set at 500 words (but knowing me, I'll always try to hit the maximum OTL). I hope that's okay with you people. Haha.

Now then, I'm dedicating this challenge to be TerQua in nature because I've had this sudden craving for this pairing like no freaking tomorrow. I think I've seen all of the Terra/Aqua fics on this site and I'm still not satisfied. D: I swear… This pairing is like my drug. I was searching fanart for TerQua too. LOL OKAY! Enough rambling! The themes all take place in the same AU setting, but they won't be in chronological order. You can take a stab at trying to piece out an order if you want though. They're all connected pieces.. :)

Wish me luck! Please enjoy and if possible, drop a review? :3 Thanks!


:: The Beginnings ::

.: The melody that keeps me going is the beating of your heart against mine :.


Aqua grew up in a fancy house with parents who could afford anything her heart desired. Her father was a successful businessman and president of his own company. Her mother was as beautiful as the music she created, but that was a given considering Aqua's mother was a critically acclaimed pianist in the world of classical music.

Everyone believed Aqua would follow in her mother's footsteps and she did. However, her musical talents weren't projected on a piano. Instead, Aqua's ability lay within the strings of a violin. Her parents didn't mind her choice in instrument and they arranged for her to attend one of the best music schools in the city. Everything was laid out for her from the beginning and Aqua merely walked down the path people built for her.

…But how did Aqua really feel?

Yes, Aqua loved playing the violin and her love for music was even greater, but…sometimes she felt as if this was all wrong…

"You need to work on this. Practice more!"

"That isn't anywhere near accomplished!"

"Again… Again from the top!"

Complete perfectionists.

Her parents wanted her to be the 'perfect' daughter. Well-educated, socially acceptable, and exceedingly talented in some form of art. Music was only one outlet in which her parents wanted her to excel in. They also enrolled young Aqua in ballet so she could become an elegant swan… Nothing more than a pet.

However, Aqua never complained. She…didn't know what else to do. If she took one step out of her predetermined path, how would she proceed? That thought alone scared her and it was that line of thinking that kept her trapped in her bird cage.

Aqua thought her life had ended before it even began.

…And then she met him.

Aqua met him once when she escaped to the courtyard of the school for a break. He was lazily sitting there in a tree and simply strummed his guitar. Once he noticed her presence, the boy immediately jumped off his perch with his guitar comfortably strapped to his back. Aqua was confused by his actions until she realized he wasn't wearing the school uniform. In fact, he was never a student from her school to begin with!

"Who—" She was silenced the moment he placed his index finger on her lips.

Aqua merely stared in amazement, trapped within his blue gaze. He studied her with a pursed lip before smirking. "Pretend you didn't see me."

She blinked once, noticing the boy running towards the fence of the courtyard and climbed it. Aqua quickly stood up. "Wait! What's your—"

"Terra!" he shouted, sitting on top of the fence. He smiled for her before finally disappearing over the tall barrier.

Aqua blankly stared at nothing.

Terra…

Mysterious, cobalt eyes; earthen, brown hair that spiked at the top of his head; a smirk exuding confidence, but had a way of melting into a gentle beam.

A smile slowly touched Aqua's lips.

That boy… He was only the beginning.
