Chapter One: The First Fight
He almost falls backwards as a girl bumps right into him. He takes a few steps back, then notices who she is "Namine? Its really you!" He helps her up. What did you mean, they're everywhere? He looks off toward the alley. "Is Seifer ok?"
"Theyre . . . I don't know... Oh come see... Her lack of vocabulary wasn't very surprising at the moment as she dragged him into the scene with an unconscious Seifer ... there was nothing there now though...Wa... What? Where'd they go?!
He looks around, not really seeing anything except Seifer. He helps Seifer up, while looking around to make sure he hasn't missed anything. Thats very odd, Namine. Are you sure you saw something? I know you wouldn't lie to me. He relaxes a bit; as Namine makes sure Seifer is ok. Have you been here long, Namine? I've been looking for you. Sora has something he wants us to do."
She blinked bit confused and brought her hand to her mouth... "Seifer... I... She looked up and took a step towards him... we should go then...
"Bye Seifer..." She waves
"Take care of Ollete...
He leads her to the Usual Spot, and takes a seat on the couch I'm glad I found you, I was worried for a while. Sora says that a new threat is appearing, calling themselves Chasers. They seem to be after Keyblades. Sora mentioned something about a Keyblade war, but he wasn't specific on it. He thinks that your powers as a witch are only beginning to show themselves, and he wants you to train under Yen Sid. He watches her expression as he talks, wondering how he was ever separated from her. He can't seem to take his eyes off of her, now that he has been reunited with her.
She looks up at him her cheeks flushing pink her eyes never seemed to truly meet as... As if... she was... Avoiding them... and was she blushing... "Ch... Chasers... what... what do they look like? And Yen Sid? He kind of scares me...
He smiles, as he sees her blush. "He doesn't know much about them, really, and neither do I. He blushes a bit, thinking about how beautiful she seems to him now, even though she hasn't changed much. He notices he is staring, and quickly gazes around the room, hoping she didn't notice, and tries to keep up the conversation " I've met him, thats how I became a whole separate person, so I know that he can teach you a great deal of things. And don't worry, I'll go with you, Sora seems to think that we would make a good team together. I'm the Brawn, youre the brains. He smiles as he says the last part, again looking at her.
She... blushes... More... her face rather red... "You put a lot of faith in me Roxas..."
He again smiles. "I know you can do it, Namine. Sora says that your role in things is going to be much larger than anyone can see for now. And besides... Yen Sid told me that you were special. He takes her hand. "And don't worry. I know that together, we can do anything."
She looks up her eyes wide and her face red... "Roxas... She looks at her hand... "I... uh" She stammered... "Ro... Roxas...
"You ok?" He holds her hand, hoping she isn't going to pass out or anything.
"Don't get too excited, we aren't leaving for a day or two. I think I can talk Ollete into letting you stay at her place; I'm going to try to talk to Seifer and see if he will let me stay there. I think we both need the rest." He kisses her hand, and then hugs her "I think the day is young though, so if there is anything you want to do, feel free to ask. I'm sure we can find something."
She looked up at him "The beach?" She smiled sweetly as she hugged him back "I have more than enough munny for the beach and two melons for both of us!" She smiles brightly... "That and I just got a new bathing suit from Kairi...." She trailed off and began to blush deeply.
He blushes too, as he thinks of her in a bathing suitUm... He trails off, trying not to look at her. Ill see if can find something, Im sure Hayner has some shorts I could borrow."He gets up, smiles shyly at her. "So, want to meet up at the beach in a bit then?"
Why can't we go together I have to swing by Fujins house to pick up my bathing suit and towel and my munny" She smiles at him her face turning red as she leaned against his chest "It's still so early.. I hope I don't get sunburned. "
He smiles shyly
"Sure... um... I guess we could stop by Hayner's on the way there then." He places an arm around her back, looking at her face, as she leans against his chest. "Im sure you won't get sunburned, I think there are shade umbrellas set up, we will just snag one."
"Alright" She takes his hand
Lets go!" She tugged him lightly... At the moment she resembled Kairi... she was smiling brightly and rather charismatic.
He can't help but notice how she still retains some of Kairi's spirit, and how that makes her seem more complete. They both get to Hayners, and he tries on a pair of Shorts, coming out for her to see.
"Um... What do you think of these?" He smiles shyly, wearing only the boxers, and some sandals, as well as his favorite necklace.
She smiles brightly "Looks good" She... Appears to be blushing again... "Lets get to Fujin's house!" She tugs him again her small hand intertwining with his as she pulls him along with a brilliant smile.
He gladly follows her, and upon getting to the house, sits on the couch and waits for Namine to come back out of the room where she is getting dressed. He can't seem to wait to see what she will look like.
She comes out wearing a long white sari skirt with a red and blue glitter butterfly at the bottom underneath was a matching bikini bottom and her top had a Keyblade emblem emblazoned on the right breast it also matched the sari. She had her hair clipped back with matching hair clips and earrings. On her left hand middle finger a delicate silver ring with a small blue crystal resided in intent to cause a tan line. She looked at Roxas and set her towel down and turned slowly, "How do I look?"
At first, he can't seem to form words. His mouth moves, but nothing comes out. Then he finally can speak again. "Wow... Um... He blushes, and looks away "You look fantastic..." He continues to blush and looks back at her, and stands up. "Shall we get going then? He walks towards the door, and stands in the doorway, waiting for her to get her munny and beach towel.
She picks all the things back up and puts them in a matching white beach tote, Sliding on pair of white flip flops with the same butterfly and Keyblade emblems as her bathing suit hair clips and sari she smiles and says "oh hold on!" She picks up a small barbell with the same butterfly and Keyblade symbol as everything else and... Slides it in... Apparently she has her belly button pierced.
After she has everything, they both head to the station to get tickets to the beach. He can't seem to help notice that there are a lot of guys looking at her, and he gets a bit jealous, but tries to hide it. They both get a ticket, and board the train. "So... Namine... What made you want to be separate from Kairi? My main motivation was to see you again." He blushes as he takes, hoping he isn't sounding too mushy. Then he notices a shadowy figure out of the corner of his eyes, but when he turns to look, its gone. He decides not to mention it, as he doesn't want Namine to worry.
" I.. I like being my own person if I can be"
She smiles "Besides It's like having a twin sister you can spend time with and know what they're thinking" She glances around the train.. And peers outside,"H... Hey what the! Her eyes widen a bit as she steps back "Not them again!"
He nods in agreement, wondering if he and Sora seem like twins to people. He smiles, then notices what Namine is pointing at, and watches as his Keyblade, Haunting Desire materializes in his hands. "Don't worry Namine, if they try to get in here, I'll fight them as much as I can. I won't let anything happen to you."
She looks at him in shock and smiles, "Roxas... I'll help you any way I can She takes a determined step forward and watches the shadowy thing... "Is that a... Umph" It jumps on her "Gah! Offa me!"
He swipes at the Heartless as she tosses it off of her, smashing it into shadowy bits. "Yes, its the heartless! I think they are drawn to the Keyblades." He produces his second blade, Voiceless Scream, and begins to attack them head on There doesn't seem to be many of them, this should be easy..." He slices through two as they charge forward, twirling around to slice through another and finally a downward strike to take out another. He then, looks back to see Namine fighting one, and heads back to help her.
Namine pins and casts "Fira" And... Well it clearly wasn't thought through as she tumbled into the train wall... "They're not the same as those that attack Seifer and I...
She looks up at Roxas coming back from her reverie quickly to note one hovering behind "Roxas look out!"
