After She's Gone

Disclaimer! I don't own Kingdom Hearts, which includes Roxas, sadly.

"Why won't you get out of my head!" Roxas screamed. We were standing in the sandlot, but he doesn't know I'm here.

I'm dead, but I still watch him, just to make sure he's safe. I can pass through him without him even taking notice.

Hayner and Pence stared at him as if he was crazy, all I did was smile a little. A memory flashed through both our heads.

"Usually I do all the worrying over you."

"Well for your information Roxas, I worry about you all the time."

"I'm glad you're back Xion, I just wish Axel wasn't so rough with you."

"I guess he's not coming today…"

Hayner and Pence walked away, confused and freaked out.

"Who is she!" Roxas grabbed his head in pain.

I hate to see him like this, I know the memories of me hurt him when he remembers.

My name crossed into his head.

"Xion…" He narrowed his eyes. "I hate you Xion."

It's not just the words he said, but the tone in his voice, and the expression on his face, that let me know and feel his hatred too.

I sank down onto one of the benches, hot tears started running down my face.

Roxas's head snapped up and he looked toward the spot where I was sitting. I suddenly felt his arms wrap around me.

"Don't cry, please don't cry…" He told me.

"Roxas…" I started shaking. "Please don't hate me."

"I don't… I shouldn't have said that." I looked up and saw the tears brimming in his eyes.

"Why do you remember me?" I asked, unable to stop crying.

"Because…" He started. "Because I love you Xion."

"You…love me?" That caught me by surprise.

"Yeah…I always have." He smiled down at me and wrapped his arms tighter around me.

"Never forget…that's the truth."

"No! Xion, who else will I have ice cream with?"

I smiled at his memory. They're all we have left.

"It's okay Xion." He brushed the hair off my forehead. "I won't forget you."

I laughed quietly. "No…you'll forget me again, just like before."

"No…I'll remember you, I swear." He promised.

"I won't be mad Roxas…I love you too." I faded away, leaving him alone, and almost automatically he forgot about me. I still couldn't stop crying.

"Sea salt ice cream, go on, try it."

"It's sweet, but kinda salty."

Memories, the last thing that tied me to him.

Did you like it? This was one of my first fanfics, I made it when I first got the game, which was right after it came out basically, and after I finished the game, which was about one week in standard mode. Anyway, Roxas says hi and to review.

Roxas : I did?

Me : Yes honey, you did.

Roxas : Oh yeah, that's right. Review!
