Hello everyone! Finally, here it is! Thank you to 'Riilustra -Your Sweetest SIN' for helping me with the name and summary of the story. Phoenix and Haruka don't cry very much in this story. Alright, I'm not gonna give a profile for Phoenix. Let's just say her appearance hasn't changed much (the marks under her eyes are gone). Isn't the cover pretty? Who do you think it is?

Chapter 1: Dreams and awkward!
"Hey Haru, you okay?"
"Oh, um yeah."
"Outside this tiny world, is a much bigger one."
"So that's why we need to get out of this world to explore others."
"You've been thinking a lot lately, haven't you?"
"Thanks to you. If you haven't come here, then I would have never thought about this."
"I'm sorry for putting so much stress and making you think too much."
"Hey Haru are you okay?"
"You don't have to be sorry."
"Thank you Haruka."
"You're welcome Ri-."
"What are you doing here?"
"What do you mean, 'what are you doing here'?"
"You know what I mean. Just answer the question!"
"Hey, I was worried about you!"
"Worried about what? I'm fine!"
"No, you're not fine. I saw your face and you looked upset. I want to know what's wrong."
"No, you'll never understand what's wrong because you don't care Ri-."
"I DO CARE ABOUT YOU HARUKA."
"No. There's nothing left to say. Actions speak louder than words."
"This world has been connected."
"I'm sorry, I'm sorry for making you angry. I shouldn't have spoken to you like that. I should be apologising not you. I deserved that slap."
"I Haruka, will never change for anyone or anything. I will remain myself till the very end."
"Please, I need to go. I promise you that when I come back, I won't come back alone; Ri-'s going to be with me. I promise I'll find Ri- and we'll come home."
"The door…is open!"
"Once we step through, we might not be able to come back. We may never see our parents again. There's no turning back. But this may be our only chance
"We can't let fear stop us! I'm not afraid of the darkness!"
"Haruka, I don't care about all that, I must become stronger whether you like it or not!"
Phoenix jolted up and panted with a pale face. The red haired girl composed herself and sighed.
"Another dream…about her…" She whispered.
"Phoenix, you okay?" Roxas asked and she felt something soft against her neck; his lips.
"Yeah, now I am…" She mumbled with pink cheeks.
"That's good." He said against her skin and she got onto her knees. Phoenix faced the window and he wrapped his arms around her waist. She pushed the windows open and felt the soft cool breeze hit her face. She sighed with delight and they heard the Clock Tower chiming.
'Another day…' Phoenix thought.
A few minutes later, the red haired girl stared at herself in the mirror. Those lines that were under her eyes were completely faded away; that was good.
Phoenix was ready for another day, wearing her usual attire of clothes. She wore a cream tank top decorated with lace and was up to her navel. The red haired girl also wore light blue shorts and dark red high tops. She wore a multi-coloured friendship bracelet and a sea salt ice cream necklace which was given by Roxas.
"Still staring at the mirror, huh?" Roxas asked as he crossed his arms.
"Uh-huh." She giggled and glanced at Roxas' reflection. He shook his head at this and walked up to her. The blonde haired boy wrapped his arm around her and nuzzled her cheek.
"You're beautiful through my eyes." She blushed at this and turned her head towards him. Phoenix rolled her green eyes like this.
"Whatever, Roxy-boo!" She said and he laughed at this.
"Heh, I love you Fee-fee." He leaned in and captured her lips.
Phoenix and Roxas were with Olette, Pence and Hayner at the Usual Spot. Hayner was just talking about some stuff whilst the others listened.
But then, Phoenix noticed something from the corner of her eye. She turned to Roxas who was looking at his hands with deep thought. She touched his hands and held them. He looked up at her and she smiled softly at him.
"You okay?" Phoenix asked and he squeezed her hand reassuringly.
"Yeah." Roxas replied and she let of his hand.
"Man, doesn't that tick you off?" Hayner asked annoyed and Phoenix turned to him.
"Yeah that's wrong!" Pence agreed.
"Seifer's gone too far this time." Olette pointed out. Phoenix's eyebrow twitched at this and she gripped her fist whilst grinding her teeth together.
She hated Seifer and she even hated his guts. He thought he was so strong and damn perfect. Flirting around with her in the open and even mocking her boyfriend!
"What has he done this time?" Phoenix growled and they all shivered when they sensed her fearful aura of hatred. Hayner hopped off his seat and crossed his arms.
"It's true that stuff's been stolen around town. And we've got a score to settle with Seifer and everything." He glanced at Phoenix with a gulp.
"Especially Phoenix. So, if he wants to think we did it, we can't really blame him." Phoenix's head snapped up.
"Excuse me?" She asked.
"You heard me right Phoenix. See, that's not what really bugs me. What really bugs me is that he's goin' around and tellin' everybody that we're the thieves. Now the whole town and their mothers are treating us like the Klepto Club!"
"That cheap jerk!" Phoenix shouted out.
"Right on sister!" Hayner agreed and Phoenix stood up.
"I've never been so pissed off at that asshole in my life!" She said.
"What do we do now?" Hayner asked and Phoenix cracked her knuckles.
"I tell you what we do. We beat him up so bad that he doesn't even mutter a word!" She said arrogantly. Hayner tilted his head and his eye twitched. Pence scratched the back of his head and Olette laughed nervously at this. Roxas face palmed and shook his head.
"Uh, well…We can find the real thieves. That would set the record straight!" Roxas pointed out and they all turned to him.
"Yeah, that sounds like fun." Pence said.
"It might have less violence, but it sounds like a great idea." Phoenix smiled at Roxas with a wink. Pence ran off somewhere.
"But what do we do about Seifer?" Hayner asked.
"First, we need to clear our names. Once we find the real culprit, everyone will get off our backs." Roxas stated.
"Oh no!" Pence exclaimed and they all looked at him.
"They're gone! Our - are gone, - are gone!" Phoenix twitched at this.
'Sounds like a movie, when you're swearing they cut it out.' She thought.
Pence touched his throat and cleared his throat.
"All our - are gone?" Hayner asked and he freaked out as well. Phoenix tried so much not to laugh, but started snickering.
"You can't say -, why not?" Olette asked and Phoenix laughed at this. They watched her and she stopped whilst wiping a tear away.
"You guys are jokes! Can't even say a word." Hayner huffed and rolled his eyes at this.
"Phoenix, I can't say it either, I can't say -." Roxas mumbled and she shook her head at this.
"Aw come on you lot. Stop pretending, even I can say -." Her eyes widened and she gulped.
"No way, no, I can't say the damn word, -! That is so low!" She complained and looked at Roxas.
"They were stolen. And not just the -, the word -, they stole it too!" He muttered.
"What kind of thief is that?" Hayner crossed his arms.
"A damn good one. Hey if I was a thief, I would have stolen the item, the word and the memory of it, then people would be confused and all." They stared at her with large eyes and her eyes twitched.
"What?" She asked curiously and Roxas shook his head vigorously forgetting what weird this came out of Phoenix's mouth at that moment.
"Okay, Seifer could never have pulled that off." The brown eyed teen said and Phoenix huffed at this whilst rolling her eyes at this.
"Yeah!" Roxas agreed.
"Time for some recon." Hayner muttered.
"And kicking some ass!" Phoenix jumped and pounded her head in the air with a little tee-hee. Roxas smiled at this and shook his head at this; cute and crazy.
Hayner, Olette and Pence ran off and just as Phoenix and Roxas was about to follow everything went hazy. Roxas placed his hand onto his head and groaned. Phoenix covered her face with her palms and breathed slowly.
'What's going on…? Why is…everything so…slow motion and…hazy?' She thought and they both fell to the ground.
"His heart is returning and oddly, her highness' heart is returning as well. Doubtless he'll awaken very soon. But I'm not sure about the Princess just yet. There's still a 98% chance she won't wake up."
Roxas opened his eyes and got up. He dusted some dust off his trousers and noticed Phoenix who was still on the ground. But then she woke up and was on her knees. The red haired nobody placed her hand onto her head and he helped her up.
"It felt like, I was went on a merry-go-round too many times." She mumbled and looked up at Roxas.
"You okay now?" He asked and closed her eyes for a few minutes. She opened her green eyes with a small smile.
"Yeah." They leaned in and started kissing. He wrapped his arms around her waist and pushed her against the wall. She wrapped her arms around her neck and he pulled away from her lips and attacked her sweet spot on her neck.
"Oh Roxas…" Phoenix sighed with delight.
"Guys…" They heard Olette say and Roxas pulled away from Phoenix instantly. They looked at the ground with red cheeks and the brown haired girl couldn't help but giggle at this. It was so awkward!
"Sorry for disturbing you two, but we need to go. Come on." She said.
"Right." They agreed in unison and followed her.
