Chapter 1 of Falling Falling Snow
I was no one. I didn't belong. There is no place for me to go anymore...
I thought this as I ran down the cold alleyway. It was snowing and it was early February. My feet made a soft crunching sound as I dashed through the snow. The wind howled in my ears and chilled me to the bone but anything was better than that forsaken, desolate place that I used to call home.
I looked to the skies as the bits of cold drifted down on my raven hair. The same hair that Mama used to say was so beautiful. Before the accident, before both of them were taken..
"Xion... I don't know how to say this but, both of your parents are dead."
I stared at her. How could they both be dead? They couldn't be. They promised that they would be back with the present they promised me...
"I know you're old enough to understand this. For goodness sake you're thirteen! So let me explain. You will be sent to your aunt since you're an orphan now. She's going to be a great guardian And..."
She didn't know anything. My aunt was a cursed, horrible witch who didn't give a damn about what I thought about.
And with that thought, I ran out the door taking my coat with me leaving my grandmother trying to grab me but I was already gone.
My life went from a perfect one with no impurities to a living hell except everything was frozen. Every good thing of my past was covered, never to be seen again because of the white bits of snow.
back to the present
I kept running. I didn't have anywhere to go and there was no purpose left in my life. Why was I even born in the first place? Tears began to fall from my eyes as they began to melt the snow around where they fell. I wasn't looking where I was running to and I suddenly hit someone or something. The collision was followed by a sudden "oomph!"
I looked up. There was a boy who had bright blonde hair not much taller than me. He didn't look much older than me either. I backed away. The boy saw my face as I tried to hide my tears. I began to run away but his hands firmly grabbed my shoulders. I had no energy left so I didn't bother to struggle. He turned me around and looked straight into my eyes. The first thing I noticed was how his eyes sparkled in the white light around us. I began to relax but I was still utterly unhappy. The boy frowned and then spoke to me,
"You don't look so happy. Why do you look so sad?" he said in a worried voice. My face was wet with tears as I shook my head. It was too painful and I didn't want to tell him. Suddenly he surprised me by pulling me into a hug. Why did he hug me? I was a stranger to him. For gosh sake I didn't even know his name! I had no meaning to him. But I was lonely. I needed someone to hug and tell all of me problems to even if he was a stranger.
I then just broke down and cried softly into his shoulder. He comfortingly patted me back and mumbled soothing words to me. He still was hugging me when he asked me a question,
"What's your name? How old are you?" he said in a soothing voice.
"M-my name is Xion Uchida. I'm thirteen."I said still teary.
"I'm Roxas, Roxas Hikari." Then he answered me with a kind reply,"I know what you've been through. I've gone through that too.."
I slowly looked up at him. He has? How did he know anything about me other than my name and my age?
He let me go but continued to looks at me with sad but reassuring eyes.
"H-how do you know?" I asked nervously. I was unable to glance back at him in order to hide my sadness.
"I could tell by your eyes. You've lost someone very special to you huh?" he said softly.
"What do you mean?" I asked him."how can you tell by just looking at me?"
"Eyes are the window to the soul," he told me."you just have to look closely."
I looked down and whispered hoping he wouldn't hear, "it's my mom and dad.." still he heard me and put his hand on my shoulder. I looked at him.
Roxas smiled sadly and said to me, "Why aren't you at home? Whoever is waiting at home must be really worried about you."
I looked at him. He smiled softly and asked me where I lived. He nodded and took me there. He opened the door and I saw my grandmother. I ran to her arms, crying again. She hugged me and thanked Roxas. He beckoned me to go outside again and I followed him to an alley right beside my house. He looked at me with happy but sad eyes.
"Xion, I have to go with my dad to Traverse Town so he can run his business. My father is the president of a very large company so I'm constantly moving. He was able to stay here sometimes and one day, we may be able to live here. I'm leaving two days from now." He paused as if waiting for me to say something.
I looked at him and thought of something to say.
"Roxas, I'll be there. I'll be there to say good bye." I said confidently and nodded. Roxas grinned and then got up. We said our goodbyes and promised to meet up two days from now.
At the Tram Station
"So I guess this is goodbye?"I asked with a regretful voice. Even though we had only met a couple of hours ago, I had already become attached to him. Can things ever get better?
As if he was reading my mind, he said to me, "Xion, don't worry. We'll see each other again. I'm sure of it okay?"
He smiled warmly at me and I smiled back. Then he spoke again.
"Xion. I want you to keep me a promise but first, do you promise not to forget it?"
I nodded in response keeping a sincere look.
"Promise me this Xion: whenever you need help or feel bad, think of me. I'll do my best to return as soon as I can."
I nodded at this queer promise but I agreed and we made a promise from that day and so forth until he returned to twilight town.
"So I guess I have to wait for you to come back..." I said sadly. Little bits of tears began falling out of my eyes. I quickly blinked them off. I was thirteen and I was crying over a friend I just met! But still. He was one of the best friends I had since he stood beside me when I needed help the most, unlike any of my other friends who just walked away thinking that I needed to be alone.
I bit my lip and closed my eyes tightly. I wished that he didn't have to go! Why does everything bad happen to me? First it was my parents, being destined to live with my ass of an aunt and then my new friend Roxas was leaving me! My thoughts and emotions rampaged in my mind and then I couldn't take it anymore.
Tears slid out of my eyes and I hugged Roxas tightly. He seemed startled for a moment then he relaxed and hugged me back. I was beginning to sob and hiccup so he patted me on the back and murmured to me softly in kind words. I whimpered and buried my head into his chest as I sobbed knowing that the person who helped me in my time of need would be gone. Like everything good I used to have.
The tram finally came into view and we stood on the tracks waiting. The tram door slowly opened and people piled in leaving just Roxas and me. The boy placed his hands on my shoulders and bent down a little so he was level to my face. He leaned his forehead against mine. I blushed and found the urge to look away but I didn't. He stared straight into my eyes and said softly,
"Don't worry. I have the feeling that we'll see each other again. Even if we don't, I'll always be with you, right here. He pointed at my chest where my heart was.
Roxas slowly got up and walked into the tram.
As the door to the tram began to slowly close, he took one last look at me. He smiled sadly then said to me,
"We'll see each other again. I know it!" he paused for a second and seemed to be looking for something. Then he took something out of his pocket and threw it to me right before the door closed. It was a small box. When I caught it, the tram began to pull away from the station. As the tram slowly chugged away I waved and smiled sadly as my friend left me to the place where I would never go.
When I couldn't see the tram anymore, I turned around and began to walk back home. It was still cold outside and I opened the small box that Roxas threw at me.
I opened it and there was a small necklace. In fact, it was some sort of locket. I opened it to see what was inside. There was a small note inside.
'Xion, wait for me okay? I'll always do my best to always be by your side.'
Behind where the note was, there was a small photo of Roxas. I blushed and held the locket close to my heart. I smiled and whispered
"Roxas, I'll wait as long as it takes for you to get here. No matter what, I'll be waiting."
Then snow began to fall...
I like how I did the ending. Kinda leaves a nostalgic note to it.
This story is going to revolve around Valentines Day and Snow (no DUH)
