Walking down the streets of the crummy city, Riku felt extremely lost. And not just in the way that means “lost in a big place” or something like that. He was also feeling a little bit lost without his two best friends walking right beside him. They were always being separated so it seemed. He thought about the two every day. Sometimes, he even tried to forget that he was alone, but the thoughts would never leave his head, no matter what he tried to do. There was one answer he could think of. Him, Sora, and Kairi’s destinies were intertwined. They’d always remain a part of each other’s lives, no matter what happened. Still walking hopelessly, that’s when he saw it. That oh so familiar figure.
It was her. It had to be her. The girl he had been best friends for practically all of his life. That girl was Kairi. Catching a glimpse of her figure in the distance, it was time to pick up the pace and get to her. It was really happening. They were finally reuniting once again. Running as fast as he could to get to his best friend, he couldn’t help but feel excitement running throughout his whole body. Within a minute, he finally reached her. It was her. It was definitely her. He could be absolutely sure now. Catching his breath as he stopped, he couldn’t wait to greet her once again.
“Kairi! It’s really you! I can’t believe that we were separated again. But now… Now you’re here. You’re safe. You don’t know how glad I am that your safe Kairi. I’ve been thinking about you and Sora all of the time, ever since I got here.”
After saying the words he needed to get out of his body, he was quick in pulling Kairi into a hug. It was almost too good to be true.
It felt as though history was about to repeat itself, this situation giving her the unwanted feeling that she was going to end up waiting alone again, at least for now there were no cages. Still, this place was freaky, the busy cars, the busy people, the lights painting the floors rainbow. It was all so sudden, so weird, that Kairi really did begin to feel that it was all just a dream, remind her never to eat too many sea-salt ice creams before bed again.
She was about to give up searching, maybe asking a passer by would be useful, although by the looks of things, everyone else was too busy either rushing to their wanted destinations, or sorting their own problems out, who would put their precious time aside to help a red-headed teenager? She couldn’t help but feel slightly sick at the thoughts of being alone again, it had seemed that the three would always find themselves getting into all sorts of trouble, as if fate was trying to win over their desired destinies.
If that’s the case though, fate would have to try again, because Kairi then spotted a silver-haired boy racing through the crowds towards her, and Kairi’s face lit up. It was Riku, Riku was here.
“Riku! O-Over here!”
As Riku had finally caught up, Kairi couldn’t help but stupidly grin at his words, then finding herself being pulled into a hug, and she hugged back.
“I’m so relieved you are here! I was waiting.. and I was beginning to think that you wouldn’t show up.”
“I’m glad too Riku.. as long as we’re together.”
Then all would be fine, right? The three had found themselves in tougher situations than this before, after all.
“Do you know where we are, exactly?”
