Looking out the window, he watched the sun going down, giving way to the moon and the stars. The sea ebbed and flowed, catching the light and almost seeming the sparkle. While looking at the view, he thought about how it could have gone differently. The things he could have changed. Sighing, he picked up the pen from the wooden desk and pulled a sheet of paper in front of him. Then he started his letter.

Kari,

I've been trying to say that… these three words that mean something for the longest time. There are lots of words but I always felt I owed you these three. Even back when we were kids. Ever since I drew that picture of us in the cave (that stupid one with the paopu fruit) and I came back and saw you added to it. Well, the feelings it made me feel were crazy! I knew that I could never live without you from then on.

And, yet, here I am, off on another crazy adventure and you're not here with me. You've never been allowed to be here and I tell myself I don't let you because I'm afraid you'll get hurt but really I know that it's because I was never able to say these words to you and having you there would just make it even harder. It would mean I couldn't escape.

So. Here goes. Even when writing this I'm finding it super hard to write these words down! What's wrong with me? You're not even here to judge me, or shoot me down, or anything. And yet, I can't even write these stupid three words! Why not!? Look at me, getting annoyed at a letter. Words were never my friend. But you were. Okay, Kari. I'm going to do it so here goes.

I love you.

And I miss you every day.

Love (I did it twice now!) Sora.

As he finally finished penning the letter, he felt a tear come to his eye. He wasn't sure if it was due to the happiness of finally finishing writing or finally admitting his feelings. He wiped it away quickly before Donald or Goofy saw and asked about it. Rolling up the piece of paper, he placed it into a bottle and then corked the bottle as he walked down the wooden steps to the beach.

Kicking his shoes off on the pier, he continued onto the sand, enjoying the feel of it between his toes. "I know you might not get this. But I finally said it." Sora stretched his arm back and hurled the bottle into the water. "And maybe that's enough."


I don't own Kingdom Hearts.

Let me know what you thought! :)
