Right, first songfic. Sort of. Everything Kairi says is from the same song. I hope that you'll enjoy.

I own no characters, nor the song. They belong to Tetsuya and Dido. Yes, really.


"I might have been a singer who sailed around the world. A gambler who wins millions and spent it all on girls. I might have been a poet who walked upon the moon. A scientist who'd tell the world I'd discovered something new."

We don't know, that's the thing Kairi!" Sora begged me, looking desperate as he realised what I was going to do after my little speech.

"I might have loved a king and been the one to end a war."

"Yeah, right!" He said automatically. "Don't you think I'm good enough?"

"A criminal who drinks champagne and never could be caught."

"You wouldn't mind being a criminal?"

"But among your books, among your clothes. Among your noise and fuss, I've let it go." I announced.

"I can stop and catch my breath and look no further for happiness. I will not turn again, cos my heart has found it's home." I told him, backing towards the window.

"Wait! Kairi, please!" There was despair in his eyes.

"Everyone I'll never meet and the friends I wont now make. The adventures that there could have been and the risks I'll never take." I thought about the life I could have chosen to live, if only I had the courage.

"Please! Don't do this Kairi!" He was crying. "Please don't!"

"But among your books, among your clothes, among your noise and fuss, I've let it go." I stepped forwards one more time.

"NO!" He cry followed me.

I can stop and catch my breath.

And look no further for happiness.

I will not turn again.

Cos my heart has found it's home.

I've let it go.


How was it?
