Hunted - A Kingdom Hearts Story

Friendly Help

'Vanitas…' The old man said as he trotted up to the black wolf.

'What?!' Vanitas growled as he felt his target disappear from the cave.

'You can tell that he has left…'

'So what, Xehanort?! If we don't get him back from that stupid Xemnas, he's gone… so is the plan!' Vanitas growled as he watched the blue wolf tackle the red one as the Xemnas took off with a blonde spot on his back.

'That boy has something that you like about him…'

'So…'Vanitas growled as the blonde wolf disappeared from his view.

'If he means that much to you bring him back. Help his pack, but once he's back you come back, and the plan will continued as planned.

Vanitas growled but he saw the blue wolf get thrown off the red one, the red wolf dashed after his target and his worst enemy. Vanitas took one look at the old wolf, nodded his head and went after the red wolf.


Axel stood shakily as he saw flashes of yellow and black going back in forth between the trees. His eyebrow knitted together as he wondered what was going on.

'Hey ruby! You want him back now's your chance!' Vanitas said as he hopped out from between the trees to Axel's left.

'Why are you helping me?'

'Now's not the time for questions! If you want him go get him!' Vanitas whimpered as a lightning bolt hit his tail. "You'll pay for that bitch!' Vanitas growled as he ran back into the trees to tackle Larxene. Axel thought he was walking into a trap, because it's only natural for the organization to fight Vanitas and his master Xehanort. But he did what his heart told him. Go after Roxas.


Vanitas nearly tore off Larxene's head for hurting him so badly but he left her after he knew she was unconscious.

'Vanitas… why are you helping them?' a familiar voice said from behind him. There he saw a blonde wolf looking like his target, but he could see the trees through the boy's body.

'Nothing you need to know about Ventus.' Vanitas growled as he walked over to where Axel headed to go after the silver wolf.

'I do need to know, Roxas is me now. There is nothing I can change.' Vanitas growled at the horrible memory of the night, his lover was kidnapped and killed.

'Still, why him?' Vanitas snickered.

'Because, he's my nobody just like Sora's. Plus Vanitas, he was the only one with the open heart. He was part werewolf as well. That's how come when I found him in Sora… we became one and my part of my heart left Sora to go to Roxas.'

'…' Vanitas' closed his eyes and turned to follow the red haired wolf.

'If it helps, you like him… because he is me…'


The red haired wolf stopped dead in his tracks when he saw the silver haired wolf laid the blonde one on the door way of The Hunters house. Axel held his breathe as he watched as the sun peeked over the trees. He sighed as he saw both wolves change to human.

"We have to get him out of there," Vanitas said as he walked up to the red head.

"How Xemnas is going to make sure that they know that Roxas is a werewolf."

"Think about this then…" Vanitas hid in a tree as Sora, Riku and Namine walked up to Axel.

"Hayner, Pence and Olette are Roxas' friends back in Twilight Town." Sora said.

"I wish that was true Sora…" Namine said barley under a whisper.

"What do you mean by that?" Riku asked.

"Well you of all people should know Riku." Vanitas said as he came out from hiding.

"What do you want?!" Sora and Riku whipped out their keyblades prepared for a fight but Vanitas just put his hands up.

"Look I'm not here to fight. I'm here to make sure he doesn't die" Vanitas said as he pointed at the blond lying on the door way of the house.

"Why should we believe you?" Namine asked as she hid behind Sora.

"Because I saved the red head's ass back there." Vanitas said as he pointed back to the forest. "Anyway, to get back on topic, Roxas' friendship with Hayner, Pence and Olette, was just made up, a way to distract to Organization so they could get the rest of someone's memories back."

"But they are kind enough to take someone who is badly hurt inside to heal them right?" Namine asked.

"Wrong…" Axel said as he pointed to the house. Xemnas had rung the doorbell as he held Roxas in his arms all limb. Axel could obviously tell that Xemnas was telling them a lie.

"Well now what?" Riku asked. Vanitas smirked as he watched Xemnas leave the house without Roxas.

"Easy, we steal him back."


My head pounded as I opened my eyes. I saw a yellow ceiling above me and orange walls surrounding me. I tried to sit up, but as soon as I did I remembered the cut Xemnas gave me. I lifted my shirt up to see that it was wrapped up with gauze. But just because it was wrapped up didn't mean that a whole lot of pain went up through my body.

I sighed as I laid back down; knowing I was doomed when sunset came. Sure I didn't know where I was, but whoever is taking care of me will turn me into The Hunters as soon as Sunset comes.

"Hey guys I think he is finally up!" I heard Olette's voice muffle through the door. Too late. I thought as The Hunters walked through the door. I closed my eyes waiting for the sunset to come, hopefully I could escape and get away before they get guns and find out my secret.

"Hey kid!" Hayner's voice said as he placed a hand on my shoulder. I flinched as more pain ran through me.

"Take it easy Hayner! He was cut their too!" Olette screamed at Hayner which made both me and Pence snicker.

"Looks like Olette was right he is up."

"Yeah… let's go with that…" I said as Olette got eye level with me.

"Hey, do you know what did this to you?" She asked.

"A wolf, I guess I should have went home with my friends last night, instead of staying at the skate park till dusk." I lied.

"Hey! Now I know where I saw you from!" Pence said. I felt my blood pump and sweat coming down my face.

"Yeah! Me too!" Hayner said as he picked Olette up and away from me.

"You're that kid that does all those crazy stunts!" Olette said as I finally was able to sit up; I guess I could heal some.

"Yeah, I guess I am…" I said as I smiled as they each looked at me, but I saw Pence's facial expression change from awed to a shocked expression.

"Hayner—"Pence started but Hayner looked at Pence to tell him to shut-up. I didn't like this, Xemnas wanted this to happen. He wants my "friends" to kill me.
