I was bored, so I thought I'd do this. Enjoy.

It had been about two weeks since Sora had had that weird experience, Riku at his side. Now the two friends were walking along the beach, talking about some of the things that had happened to them in the past few weeks.

"Hey, Sora?" Riku asked his best friend.


"You remember those two adults who came here to the play island?"

"You mean that blue-haired lady?"

"Yeah, and the tall guy."

"What about them?" Sora asked, tilting his head slightly.

"Uh…I dunno," Riku shrugged, confused about why he'd even brought the subject up.

"You okay, Riku?" Sora wondered.

"Yeah." The silver-haired boy looked around after hearing his father's voice call out to him. "That's my dad. Sounds like I'm heading home early. Will you be okay?"

"Yeah, I'll be fine," Sora assured him, a little upset that his friend was leaving him.

"Don't worry. We can come back here tomorrow."

"Okay," the brown-haired boy said sullenly.

Riku ran towards his dad's boat, waving all the while, as Sora walked down the beach, kicking shells.

Eventually he heard a quiet groan, and looked up. He gasped. There was a girl lying on the beach!

She was shorter that he was, and wore a white dress that was trimmed with blue and pink. Her hair was a dark red, and her face was cute.

"Hey!" he shouted as he ran to her side. "You okay?" He shook her gently.

She groaned as she opened her eyes; they were a violet colour. "Who…who are you?" she asked fearfully.

"It's okay," Sora said, trying to calm her down. "I'm not gonna hurt you. I'm a friend."

She looked around, confused. "Where am I?"

"You're on the play island. How did you get here?"

"I…I don't know." She absently rubbed the necklace around her neck.

"Who are you?"

She looked at him, studying his face. She remembered the blue-haired woman – Aqua, her name was – and the magic spell she'd said she'd cast on her. Eventually, she smiled happily, confident that this boy was nice. "I'm Kairi."

The boy smiled. "I'm Sora. Nice to meet you, Kairi."

Immediately, Sora took Kairi back to his house, informing his parents about how he met her. They softened immediately, telling her that she could stay the night.

She and Sora shared a bed. Back home, her grandmother had said something about boys and girls not being supposed to share beds, but right now she didn't care. Something about Sora made her feel…safe.

After that night, Sora's parents took her to the house of the Mayor of the town. He took a liking to her immediately, and said that she could live with them.

"Will I be able to see Sora?" she asked, her eyes brimming.

The Mayor smiled a kind smile. "You'll be able to see him every day."

Kairi smiled happily and hugged him.
