Chapter 4: The Heart
I do not own Naruto nor do I make any money off of this. I also do not own Kingdom Hearts nor Disney.
Chapter 4: The Heart
Sasuke turned the corner into another hallway. He had to admit that he was lost, even though it hurt his Uchiha pride. Not giving up, he kept walking.
Naruto was in the same position. He had run off after the Uchiha, but he must went the wrong way at some point. Deciding that he'd find the raven no matter what, Naruto pressed on, only to run into someone. The collision sent Naruto on his butt. He looked up at someone that looked a bit like himself. The boy has darker hair than his, but his eyes were a similar blue.
"Hey, you alright?" the boy asked offering a hand.
"Yeah," Naruto said taking the hand. "Um... I'm Naruto."
The boy grinned. "Roxas. And that's Riku." He pointed to a boy behind him that Naruto didn't even notice was there.
Naruto smiled. "So are you friends with Sora?"
"Sora?" Riku asked. "Sora is here?"
"Yes," Naruto nodded. "He's the one who brought me here." Without another word, Riku ran off to find Sora. "Um... ok?"
Roxas laughed. "He's always been that way when Sora's involved."
"Are you a member of this organization too?" Naruto asked.
"Yes," Roxas said. He sat down and Naruto followed suit. Roxas began to tell Naruto about his life in Organization 13. "But then I found out I was living a life that wasn't really mine. I'm a Nobody. And Nobodies shouldn't exist."
Suddenly, Roxas rubbed his cheek. Naruto had punched him. "Everyone has a right to exist!"
Sora found Sasuke in what looked like a storage room. "Do you want me to bring you back to Halloween Town?"
"Sadly, I can't leave without the Dobe," Sasuke said turning him down the offer. he held up his arm showing off the bracelet on it. "We have to be together to get back to our world."
"I see," Sora said. They kept walking hoping to find Naruto.
"Everyone has a right to exist!" A yell came from around the corner. Sasuke recognized the voice and headed towards it. What he found was an obviously pissed off Naruto yelling at a boy that looked like he could be Naruto's brother. "You were born for a reason! Never forget that!"
"Roxas?" Sora asked. "How are you here?"
"It's a long story," Roxas said. He held out his hand. "Hi Sora."
"A Nobody meeting its original is rare," a voice said behind Sasuke. Everyone turned to see Axel and Riku.
"Riku!" Sora smiled jumping into Riku's arms and kissing him.
"Axel!" Roxas yelled. He too jumped into Axel's arms and kissed him. Sasuke and Naruto stood watching them. Naruto blushed and turned away. Sasuke started to feel a weird tingly sensation in his heart at the sight of the two couples.
Axel hit Roxas over the head. "I heard your converation. How many times to I have to tell you to stop thinking such things?"
Roxas stuck out his tongue. "Heh!" He looked at Sora then at Naruto. "Naruto is a lot like Sora. They both have pure hearts." At the comment, Sora and Naruto blushed.
Naruto turned to Sora. "You you and Riku are together? What about that Kairi girl you talked about?"
"I use to be in love with Kairi," Sora said. "But I soon realized that I loved Riku more."
"I too loved Kairi," Riku said. "But now we love her as a sister."
"It goes to show that sometimes the one you love turns out to be the one you argue with the most," Sora said. "And sometimes that person is the friend who takes you into his arms and cries when you cry. It turns out to be the love you never knew you wanted and the one you thought you wanted was just a dream not meant to be."
Naruto nodded in understanding. His situation was simular to Sora's. If he was to compair his life to Sora's, he'd be Sora, Sakura would be Kairi, and Sasuke would be Riku. Naruto blushed at the thought. That would mean that him and Sasuke would be together. He shook his head. There was no way that would happen.
Sora brought Sasuke and Naruto back to Halloween Town. It was now time for the Scare-off. Naruto wasn't happy that he was basically forced to join. But nothing really scared him. That is, until he saw the ghosts. Naruto literally got so scared that he jumped on Sasuke. He held the raven tightly, shaking in his arms. He whimpered when a ghost got close to him. Sasuke began to feel that the closeness wasn't that bad. He got to feel Naruto's warm body pressed against his.
On the morning of the third day, Naruto decided to train by fighting the Heartless. He was having fun. It was a good way to see how good he was with a sword. Sasuke watched from a tree as Naruto wiped the floor with the Heartless.
Sora suddenly appeared, looking a bit freaked out. He saw Naruto fighting the Heartless and thought they attacked him. He went into fight-mode and began to swing around his keyblade. Naruto stopped Sora to tell him that he just training and that he wasn't in any really danger. Sasuke dropped down as suddenly, over 500 Heartless appeared.
"Hey Sasuke," Naruto called.
"Hn?" Sasuke grunted.
"Let's have a contest," Naruto said. "The who can takes out the most Heartless wins."
"What do I get when I win?" Sasuke asked smirking.
"When I win, you have to treat me to Ramen," Naruto said.
"We won't be having Ramen," Sasuke said. "We are going to have chicken and tomatoes."
"What are the rules?" Naruto asked.
"No using Chakra," Sasuke said. "Only swords."
"Hey Sora?" Naruto called. "Mind counting?"
"Sure!" Sora smiled. "Riku will count for Sasuke." As if he summoned him, Riku appeared at Sora's side. Sora explained what Sasuke and Naruto were going to do. He agreed but said that if it looked like either needed help, they'd interfere. Sasuke and Naruto were ok with that since they did not believe that there was going to be a chance for them to do so.
Naruto laughed as he swung his sword. He was having the most fun he had since Team 7 was active. Sasuke also was having fun. It was a good way to exercise. He didn't want to get rusty with his Kenjutsu. When all of the Heartless were gone, Sasuke and Naruto turned to Sora and Riku.
"275," Sora and Riku said.
"A tie?" Naruto asked. "Dammit."
"Better luck next time, Dobe," Sasuke smirked.
"Teme!" Naruto yelled, but a green light stopped him from saying anything more. He turned to Sora. "Looks like we are moving on."
Sora jumped down and hugged Naruto. "Good luck on your journey. I hope you get home soon."
"Thanks," Naruto grinned. "Tell Donald and Goofy, I said good bye."
"I will," Sora said. Riku waved them off. They watched as Sasuke and Naruto disappered. "When do you think they will find out about their feelings for each other?"
"It looks like Sasuke already knows," Riku said. "Naruto seems a bit dumb. It will take him awhile unless Sasuke makes a move." Sora nodded. The two looked up at the stars, wishing the two happiness.
