Who am I & Who Was I?
Kainame, Riku and I were sitting on the Paopu tree. Riku put out his hand and was holding 3 Sea Salt Ice Cream’s.
“Here, I think these will make up for me not helping today.” Kainame and I each took one of the Ice Creams.
“And you are right Riku. I don’t even remember you not showing up.” Kainame smiled at Riku then Me. For a second I thought she looked like the girl on the Stained glass ground from my dream. It was weird, it was the first time I ever could remember a dream like this, and they usually just fade away from my memory.
I could barely remember my past. I showed up in this place not too long ago. I remembered a man and his name was Roxas. That is all I remembered. I saw him fight someone and lose when the enemy used a dark power. I can’t remember anything but this.
I felt a push on my shoulder and looked over to Kainame. “What’s wrong, Roxora? You look worried”
“It’s nothing, just tiered” I didn’t want her to know what was on my mind. It always bothered me. Not knowing anything about myself. When I finally learned who I was and what was rally happening, It was all so hard to believe. “I think I’ll head home.”
Riku jumped off the tree as I did. “We’ll all meet up tomorrow. If we start working in the morning we can have the raft finished by noon and start preparations for our departure.”
“Sure” I ran on home. When I was home I started to feel tiered and I slowly fell asleep.
I was on the Stained Glass again.
“Calm yourself Roxora. Just Listen.” I just stood there. I had to listen. I needed to know what was happening. My past was already a mystery and if there was some kind of magic behind this dream then I wouldn’t care.
I looked down and saw that the picture was different but I knew who it was. It was of me but I was holding 2 of those key shaped blades and wearing a black cloak. There were people around me like there was around Sora’s. A man with Red hair, wearing the same cloak as me, and someone else, I couldn’t tell whether it was a boy or girl, but that person also wore this cloak but had the hood covering their face. These 2 faces attracted to me more than the other 11. It felt like that picture of me wasn’t me.
A door appeared in front of me. “Walk through Roxora” The door opened and I walked through. If I knew what was going to happen because of this I would of stayed put. I know that would be selfish but to give it all up… it just doesn’t seem right.
On the other side of the door it was all black. I could have sworn that I was walking on nothing.
“Your body is gone and the one you used cannot be used by you anymore.” I didn’t know what the voice was talking about. I wanted to ask questions but I couldn’t speak. “You must stay here Roxora until we know that you will not succumb to Darkness you the moment you are in the real world. You became too attached to the lives that were not yours because of the sorrow of your own.” Lives that were not mine? This was all too confusing at the time. “Once you forget about the friends that are not yours and remember your own you will be able to remember.”
“Remember What?!” I was finally able to talk.
“I will answer your question Ve-… Roxora. What is it that you want to know?”
“What are you talking about? What do I need to remember?”
“Who you are. You need to remember who you are.”
“I am Roxora.”
“No. You are not Roxora. You created this life on your own. This whole universe is a fake. You created it with your heart and now it covers your heart.”
“My heart?” I was confused. “What do you mean this universe is fake?”
“The 2 lives you lived. You got to attached to them and when you lost them you created this. Twilight Islands. This world is made by you and is you. It has almost been 11 years sense you weren’t able to continue your original life and now you can and you must. Cast aside this foolish fantasy and become yourself!”
“Foolish fantasy? How can this be a fantasy? I’ve lived here for as long as I can remember.”
“And that’s only a couple of weeks. But if you forget all of this you will realize this is fake and until you do he will sleep because time will not move.”
“He? Who are you talking about? Why don’t you just tell me everything that is happening? Why are you talking to me?”
“Sora. That is who I am talking about.”
“The boy from the picture I saw in my last dream?” This is when I realized this was all real. From the time I remember, even if it is small, I have never kept a dream in my memories, I’ve always forgotten.
“That is exactly who I am talking about. Sora must wake and to do so he must rejoin with his Nobody but that Nobody cannot exist without you.”
“What do you mean by Nobody?”
“To know what a Nobody is you must know what a Heartless is. You see, when the heart becomes corrupted with Darkness it separates from the body and becomes a Heartless. The body and soul left behind make a Nobody.”
“You think I would believe something like that? You’re lying.”
“Tell that to Xehanort. I’m sure he’d convince you otherwise.”
I feel to my knees. That name brought pain to me and I didn’t know why. It also brought another name to my mind. Terra. I lost control of myself and screamed a sentence that made no sense to me. “His name is Terra!” Then the blade Sora was holding appeared in my hand.
“You summoned his Keyblade. It’s funny how many people have used that Keyblade. Sora, Roxas, Riku, The Puppet, I slowly forget it, and now you. The Kingdom Key is the only Keyblade I know of that has had more than one wielder.”
“The Keyblade? Is that what this blade is called?”
“Yes. The Keyblade. Whoever wields it will either bring Destruction or Peace to the world. Which will you bring? I wonder. I’ll never know though until Sora wakes so I can get you back and that’s what I’ll do. But I wonder why you didn’t summon your own blade. Maybe your heart is becoming Sora’s or shaping into Roxas’s own.”
“The one who you lived in before you made this world. Well that’s what you were called. You were still in Sora’s body, I thought you would of returned then. Outdone by Sora’s soul. How pitiful.”
“What are you talking about?”
“I wonder if I say your name. Will you wake?... Let’s try V-” The dream ended and I thought “Who Am I, Who was I” I opened my eyes and woke to see Riku.
“Riku, What are you doing here?” I got up and that was when he lifted a Wooden Sword up to my head.
“Shut Up” He swung and I dodged but he swung again and hit me in the back. I fell on the ground.
