A/N: Hello fellow fanfictioners! :D Yes, I just made that up... it's probably already been owned by some other person, but then again, maybe not? Well, if it is... I truly apologize for stealing your word D: Sorry, I tend to drabble on randomly for NO reason at all... Anyway! So, as you can see, this will be my first story/challenge on here :) A really interesting one that I have taken the liberty of doing! Alright, enough of me talking, on with this story!

Disclaimer: I DO NOT own anything! I only own the plot. WishingDreamer5 owns this challenge and I certainly do not own any characters used in this story!

~*~*~*Hollow Memories with Radiant Smiles~*~*~*


"Radiant Garden, huh?"

"Yup. That's the world's original name." a man with dark brown hair and cool blue eyes was walking alongside a young boy who was no more than 15 or 16, down the narrow streets of a world that had just been restored.

"Hmmm…" the young boy's shining blue eyes wandered off to the distance and his face had a thoughtful expression.

"What's that face for, Sora?" the man asked, raising an eyebrow. Now Sora crossed his arms and his face looked bothered. Which made the man even more confused. "Come on, quit being weird and tell me."

"Eh, I don't know. Hollow Bastion seems to be a better fit." with this, the older man chuckled. Sora looked at him, curiosity filling his face. "What's so funny Leon?" he demanded. The man smacked his hand on the top of the boy's head.

"Well, you're gonna have to get used to calling it 'Radiant Garden' from now on." Leon smiled.

"That might take a while, though. Hmm… maybe if I repeat it over and over again… Radiant Garden, Radiant Garden, Radiant… blahhh blah." Sora made a face and sighed. "Definitely gonna take a while." Leon only laughed at this and patted him on the head.

"This boy is definitely an odd one. But, he did help restore this world back to what it was before. That, I have to be thankful for."

"Heyyyy! Squall, Soraaaa!" far off(but not too far off) in the distance, a black haired girl was waving to them. The two looked up, Leon had an annoyed look on his face.

"Yuffie!" Sora grinned, waving back.

"She called me Squall…" Leon grumbled low enough that Sora couldn't hear.

"We're having a Restoration of Radiant Garden Party at Merlin's! Come and join us!" the girl, Yuffie, announced with a smile. An even bigger grin spread across Sora's face.

"Party? That means food! Heck yeah, I'm comin'!" and the eccentric boy ran towards her. Leon sighed and placed a hand on his forehead, shaking his head.

"That boy… when it comes to food…"

"Squall! You gonna come?" Leon let out another sigh from being called "Squall" again.

"Yeah, yeah." though he nonchalantly walked over to her and Sora, the three heading to the house where the party was being held at.

A/N: eh, this seemed short :( I'm sorryyyy! I will try and make the next chapter longer! Definitely! But, ah, I love how Sora was in this! Him and food...

Well, that's my first chapter! :) I hope you liked it and feel free to review and tell me what you think so far! Thanks for reading!
