Chapter 2

Here's the next chapter of my fanfic. More next week!
Kaiya awoke to the sounds of voices. “Do you think she’s the one he mentioned?”
“She’s got to be, she has a Keyblade, doesn’t she?”
“Yeah, but where did she come from?”
Kaiya opened her eyes, and nearly shut them again out of brightness. Regaining her senses, Kaiya realized she was lying in sand and staring up at a blue sky. With a groan, she sat up and rubbed her head. The voices immediately stopped.
“Wh-Where am I?” Kaiya asked, her eyes adjusting to the sunlight. She jumped to her feet as soon as she realized who she was standing in front of. “Thi-This can’t be possible!” she exclaimed in surprise, “Sora? Riku? Kairi?”
The three looked astonished at one another. “How did you know that?” Riku asked bewildered.
“Well…you see I came from-” she cut herself off, hearing Donald’s voice ring in her head, “MEDDLING!”
“It’s a long story.” Kaiya said, scratching the back of her head. It was then she noticed she was different. Instead of her long flame red hair that reached to her back, her hair was a mimic of Kairi’s. It was the same flame red, but cut in Kairi’s style with the tips dyed a deep green. She was wearing loose black pants with a green, flower patterned sarong tied around her waist. Her top was a strapless green shirt like Kairi’s pink one, but tied up crisscrossed like a Renaissance dress with a white cord. Beneath that was a sleeveless thick black mesh shirt. Her hands were wrapped in Renaissance style gloves that were tied at the sides in a light lavender color. On her feet were black boots.
“So…can you guys tell me why I’m here?” Kaiya asked sheepishly.
“The king sent us a letter.” Kairi said, snatching the letter from Sora’s hands and handing it to Kaiya. “Take a look.”
Confused, Kaiya took the letter and began to read:
Dear Sora, Riku, and Kairi,
I have just received news that Organization XIII is coming back to power. I have no news on how yet, but you’ll need to stop them. I have a feeling they’re trying to make Kingdom hearts again, so be careful. The worlds are in danger. I’ll be sending Donald and Goofy soon to come and pick you up. I’m afraid I cannot accompany you on this journey, so I am sending another Keyblader to help you out. You’ll know it’s her when she arrives, so I don’t have to describe her to you. Please be safe. We’re all counting on you.

King Mickey

“So…I’m the new Keyblader?” Kaiya asked.
“Guess so.” Sora replied, “Welcome aboard!” He came over and wrapped his arm around her shoulder in a friendly way.
“Glad to join.” Kaiya said awkwardly.
Before Kaiya could comment anymore, she saw a blue and green blur flash by and Sora was instantly on the ground. Riku and Kairi were laughing as Sora sheepishly said, “Nice to see you too, Donald and Goofy.”
Kaiya couldn’t help but smile. The mage and knight had embraced Sora in a friendly, yet painful, glomp. “The king sent us right away!” Donald said, “He said you would need us again.”
Goofy had gotten up and was looking at Kaiya curiously. “Who are you?” he asked suspiciously.
“Name’s Kaiya.” She replied, giving a small peace sign.
“Hmmm…I’ve never seen you before!” Donald said with suspicion.
“Easy guys. She’s here to help us.” Sora said, cutting in front of them, “Kaiya’s the new Keyblade wielder.”
Donald and Goofy surveyed Kaiya with interest. “It’s true.” She said with a smile, and made the Fairy Harp appear in a flash of greenish-white light in her left hand. Donald and Goofy shrugged, apparently satisfied.
Kaiya sighed and rolled her eyes before walking across the bridge to where the gummi ship had landed. All of them watched her bewildered. “Well…come on!” she shouted back, “Are we going after the Organization or not?”
Sora and Riku smiled at each other and ran over. “I’m driving.” Kaiya said, just as both Riku and Sora opened their mouths to call it. They hung their heads and got in, Kaiya smiling triumphantly over them. Donald and Goofy weren’t far behind as they took off. “Good luck, guys!” Kairi called.
Sora smiled out the window as Kaiya lifted the shi off the ground and into space.
“Luckily the paths we opened to the worlds have held so far.” Donald said, “Let’s first check on Leon and the others.”
Kaiya directed the gummi ship to Hollow Bastion. Things were going smoothly until she nocited something on the horizon. “What’s that?” she asked, squinting to get a better view.”
She heard Sora gasp, “Heartless ships! Thousands of them! And they’re headed straight for us!” Kaiya gritted her teeth. Of all the bad things, this had to be the worst.
“We should have upgraded before we left.” She said, “Hold on. This is gonna get bumpy.”
Kaiya put the gummi ship in full speed and went into the Heartless ship line. There were more than thousands, there were tens of thousands. Heartless and Nobody ships forming an assault on their tiny gummi ship. Kaiya dodged carefully around the ships and enemy fire as she navigated at top speed.
“Are you crazy?!” Riku shouted, “You’ll get us killed! Go up or at least slow down!”
“I can’t do that.” Kaiya said, “This speed is the only thing keeping us from enemy fire one step ahead. Sora, man the guns. We’ll need them.”
Sora nodded and fired away at the ships, making their course somewhat easier. After a couple of minutes, Hollow Bastion, now called Radiant Garden, could be seen. They all breathed a sigh of relief.
“Well…that was interesting.” Kaiya said as she landed the ship.

My KH Fanfiction

Here's chapter one for now. I'll post more next week. This was made last Sunday when it was raining outside and i had absolutely nothing to do.
The red-head let out a sigh as she stared out the window. It was another boring Sunday with rain. She sat on a couch with her head resting in the palm of her right hand as she watched the water fall. Her father was out helping a friend, so she was stuck all alone to do nothing. Her hazel eyes fell to the floor as she got up and began to pace, her long red hair following every step. She had beaten kingdom Hearts last week, so now she had nothing to do but pace and think. “If there was one place I could visit right now, it would be Destiny Island.” She thought with another reminiscent sigh. The girl had watched every video she could find on the Kingdom Heats not released in the US and had beaten both games that were. The more she played, the more she longed to go to that fictional world where hearts collide. She had often drawn pictures of what she would look like there and what her story would be. Now, on this rainy Sunday afternoon, those thoughts came back to her.
“It’s so unfair.” She thought, “Why do all the cool worlds have to be fictional?”
With that, she headed for her basement to replay the first Kingdom Hearts. A deep rumble of thunder overhead told her the storm was getting worse. She shook her head and turned on the game. As the menu screen popped up, she selected “New Game” and watched the opening sequence. “I’ve been having these weird thoughts lately.” Sora’s voice said, “…like, is any of this for real… or not?”
A loud roar of thunder startled the girl from her focus on the screen as a huge lightning flash followed in quick succession. She was plunged into darkness as the power was cut. “Great. My only entertainment gone.” She said miserably.
“Don’t be afraid of the darkness.” A voice whispered.
“Who’s there?” she asked.
“You don’t have anything to fear, Kaiya, embrace the darkness.”
The voice sounded so familiar, but where was it from? Kaiya squinted into the hallway behind her, but couldn’t make anything out. It was like the words that spread across the screen with no voice to them in the first Kingdom Hearts. Out of nowhere, a cloaked arm grabbed her around the neck. “What? Let me go!” Kaiya shouted. The figure didn’t listen. Kaiya looked up at her captor, but a hood hid his face from her. “Organization XIII?” Kaiya whispered with a gasp. Craning her neck, Kaiya noticed an open portal a few feet from them. “Let me go!” she shouted, struggling to free herself. She suddenly felt something thrust into her hands, like a weapon. Without caring what it was, Kaiya struck her captor. He released her in a cry of pain and turned to face her again.
“You’re coming with me, conscious or not.” He said.
Kaiya paused for a minute, recognizing the voice, “…Axel?...”
The figure jumped back in surprise, but quickly regained himself. With a sigh, he pulled off his hood, revealing the spiky-haired red-head. “I see I don’t need an introduction.” He said flatly.
“’Course not! You’re the best member of Organization XIII!” Kaiya said, “You’re practically my homeboy!” She had often used that saying in front of her friends.
“Really? I’m so flattered, really, but I’ve got my orders and I intend to follow them.” Axel said sarcastically. “Now you’re coming with-”
“What?” Kaiya asked, wondering why he paused.
“Impossible…you…have a Keyblade?” he said in shock.
“What are you-?” Kaiya began, but then looked in her hand. The Fairy Harp, the Keyblade obtained in Neverland was in Kaiya’s hand. She was now even more confused.
Axel took this opportunity to grab Kaiya and toss her into the portal, quickly following after her. She suddenly thought of the videos she had seen. “I’ve got to get out of here before he comes back.” She thought, noticing Axel coming up. Kaiya jumped to her feet and ran away form Axel as fast as she could. “I’m not being a Heartless!” she screamed at him, noticing a portal ahead. Without looking back, Kaiya jumped through it and felt herself falling.
