I actually had a lot of fun with this! I’ll be adding it to the list of possible prizes for my GIVEAWAY (which will be extended and changed to allow unlimited reblogging because it didn’t even get a tenth of the notes i was hoping for;;; )
Laughing softly, he shrugged a bit. “I guess I can’t. But, yeah I wouldn’t of forgotten.. wait..” He paused for a moment, then nodded. “I would of forgotten too. So, no I don’t blame you.” He said, putting his head back, loving the feel of the sun on him.
Riku glanced over at the brunette, then down at the drawing. “I watched rain, ate, slept, watched rain, umm.. oh watched rain.” He smiled softly. “Did I mention that I watched the rain?” He asked, laying back in the sand. “Oh and I didn’t do much actually.” Riku muttered, shaking his head. “I was so bored. How bout you?”
“Same thing as you, really. I had nothing better to do while I was at home.” Sora opted to not mention that he tried to do his homework, but couldn’t summon the energy to do it.
Sora grinned coyly as he doodled Kairi on the sand yet again. He perked up as he remembered what he wanted to tell Riku.
“Riku! Riku! Riku! You won’t believe what happened to me!” Sora exclaimed, his eyes bright with excitement.
Kairi felt heat creep up her spine as he kissed her. “I really like you too, Sora,” she said, her voice unsteady. “I have for years.” It felt odd, having this out in the open. Selphie would probably squeal about it later. If she told her, anyways.
“Sora? Thank you,” she murmured. “For everything you’ve done for me. Not just anyone would turn into a Heartless for another person.” She blushed then, unsure of what else to say or do. Having this actually happen was much different than books or daydreams.
Sora rubbed the back of his head and looked down at his feet, feeling very shy and modest by Kairi’s confession. “Well, you’re one of my friends.” And much more, as she knew by now. “Of course I would do it for you….You know, I should be the one thanking you. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t have turned back into me. I probably would have been a Heartless forever.” And that was a prospect he didn’t like to dwell upon. He didn’t remember his time as a Heartless that clearly, but he could remember how he felt…cold, lonely…and dark. If it were possible to feel dark, that is.
Not really minding the rain, Riku stayed inside and watched outside from his window. He wished it would stop soon so that he could actually leave the house and see the sun again. He would just lay around the house, waiting and waiting to just.. stop!
Then the day finally came! Riku woke up with the sun in his eyes. He could of woken up a little better, but at least the sun was out. He rolled out of bed, then dressed and headed outside. He wondered if Sora or Kairi were already at the other island.
He took one of the paddle boats to the other island, noticing one was already there. He walked onto the sand, then saw Sora laying there. Smiling a bit, he walked over to the brunette. Kneeling down, he poked the side of his head. “Thanks for inviting me.” He teased, looking at his drawings in the sand.
Sora looked up to see Riku smirking at him. He smiled back “You can’t blame me for wanting to go out and enjoy the sun after three whole days of rain, and then realize you forgot to invite your friends over to enjoy this sunny day.”
Sora started a new sand-doodle of him, Riku and Kairi over some squiggly lines that were meant to resemble waves. “You know, I haven’t seen you in a while. What’ve you been up to, besides being bored to death by the rain, like I was?”
Over the last few days, it had been storming down in Destiny Islands pretty hard. It wasn’t so bad that houses had been destroyed or anything like that, but Sora couldn’t get out of the house for a few minutes without being completely soaked, down to his socks. And that was never a good feeling.
But today was different. The sky was a clear blue, the clouds were white and puffy, and best of all, the sun was shining. No rain!
Sora took this opportunity to run out of the house and paddle all the way to the island where he and his friends always played. He was excited to be enjoying his day sunbathing with—
…He forgot to ask his friends to come with him. Not the smartest move on his part.
Not wanting to return to the main island and get his friends, he decided to entertain himself by doodling on the sand. He drew pictures of the gummi ship, the friends he met in travels, and his friends back home. He continued to do this until someone showed up at the island.
