Riku knelt on the beach, a storm of emotion flooding through him. He had just witnessed Axel, Sora, and Kairi vanish through a dark portal, and Riku didn't have even a clue as to why it all happened.

'They're gone. I'm alone...'

'Why was Axel here?'

'Sora didn't have to go after him. He didn't look like he was chasing him to fight him, either. So, why...?'

'Kairi went after Sora...why didn't she stay with me...?'

'I can't fight anymore; I would've just gotten in Sora's way. That's why I didn't go after him. And- and someone had to stay with Kairi. The Organization...'

'But then she went too.'

'I tried to go with her...I tried...'

'I'm alone again.'


Riku stood up, walking back up the beach toward the area where he always used to play with his friends when he was younger. He didn't know where he was going, or why he was going there. As he walked, some of the shock wore off, and his thoughts became more coherent.

'...I couldn't protect my friends. If I still had the Keyblade, this wouldn't be happening - I could've gone after Sora, and even brought Kairi with me. The three of us could've gone together.'

The silver-haired boy walked over to a palm tree.

'Whatever Axel wanted, he probably didn't get it. As soon as I showed up, he took off - '

Realization collided into Riku's mind with as much force as Twilight Town's train.

'As soon as I got there, he left. It's my fault.'

'It happened again. I was trying to help...and I only made things worse. If I wasn't there, Axel would've kept talking, and then maybe Sora wouldn't have gone after him. He chased him because I interrupted whatever they were doing.'


Riku clenched his fists and blinked back tears.

'Why am I like this? Why am I so weak? Why are all of my efforts for nothing?'

A fist slammed against the trunk of the tree.

'I'm sick of my friends being in danger!

Another fist.

'I couldn't even do anything against Axel! Now Kairi and Sora are gone,

The tree trunk was now vibrating steadily with each blow.

'And I...'

"I made everything worse, AGAIN!" Riku suddenly shouted. Anger at himself, at Axel, and at the Organization who was causing all of this filled his being. Unbeknownst to Riku, his fists had wisps of Darkness curling around them, and the bark of the tree was beginning to splinter from his assaults.

"I HATE THIS!!! I'M POWERLESS! WHY CAN'T I DO SOMET--

And instead of making contact with the solid surface of the tree as it had so many times in the last minute, Riku's fist flew through the air. He nearly fell over; not only from losing his balance, but also because of the unbelievable sight that had taken the tree's place.

*Immersed in thought, *snort**

If.. if Xemnas did visit, wouldn't there be more broken trees? Heck, wouldn't there be broken trees?! *voice is getting excited at the revelation*

He must have done it on his own.

But what would make him do this..

Riku needed us more than Axel, I guess...

How are we going to find him?

....He saw us go into that portal. D- Do you think he tried.. looking for us?

*considers this for a while, still looking at the tree trunk*

*hesitates* Kairi, I don't know why but... I feel like he isn't on the island anymore.

*looks up at her* You feel it too?

Date: 2007-04-08 11:11 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dawntide.livejournal.com
Yeah, I think I do.

...*turns away abruptly, maybe tearing up a little* I should have stayed. We have to find him.

*hands on her shoulder, turning her back around to him* This isn't your fault! We're going to find him, I promise.

I.. just don't know how. *thinks* You want to ask that community?

*leans against his chest* Yeah...

I guess! Someone there might have an idea!

*hesitates, then wraps his arms around her and hugs her tightly*

I hope.. If they don't.. *trails off and just.. holds*

*lol platonic comforthugging*

They'll have to. We can't get discouraged. We're the ones who have to be light for him.

*totally not taking advantage of grief and hugging tighter, no way*

I know you're right, I told him that too.. I just don't like the feeling I'm getting now. It reminds me of last time Riku was gone..

*pulls away a little to look into her eyes again*

We're gonna find him. And we're gonna find him together, this time.

*smiles back, grabbing her hand*

Let's go! *runs back towards home*

((yuss, I'll make the DDD post in a bit <3))
