Lightning struck the water near the island, and two identical yelps were heard. Of course, not everyone could hear the second shout... For not everyone could see her... Except for one other, who was in a similar predicament.
"Aw come on, Namine it's just a small storm." A boy with blond hair spoke, hints of laughter in his voice, turning his head slightly towards another blond, however, this one was a girl.
"I'd feel better if we were somewhere... warmer." She whispered, although it was more of a whimper, looking out towards the window, although she could barely see anything.
"Well, the only other place is that cave, and I'm pretty sure that it would be wet, not warm." He sighed softly, trying to not let on that he felt the same way... It was pretty freezing in this little hut on the island.
"...Yeah, you're right, Roxas..." Namine sighed, in tune with another sigh as another boy spoke similar words to a girl with red hair, who seemed to be in exactly the same place, exactly the same position, as Namine;.
"Although I do wish they didn't pick today to come. Then we would be nice and warm..." Roxas laughed, "Oh well. Hopefully the boats don't get lost."
"D-do you think they will?" Namine gasped, realizing that possibility.
"Nah, and even if they do, I'll-- I mean, Sora will swim out to get them." Roxas sighed, missing being in full control of himself...
"...Wh-what if they got broken against the rocks, what then?" Namine spoke another worry.
"Hm... Well, then Riku or someone will come rescue us. You worry too much, Namine." Roxas laughed again, hoping she would too. He loved the sound of her laughter, and he was starting to hear it more often.
"Hehe, you're right." Namine giggled slightly, as she began to feel drowsy.
"...Of course, aren't I always?" Roxas turned his head to grin at her.
"Sure you are..." Namine grinned, a slight teasing tone in her voice.
"Wh-what, you don't think I--" Roxas started, but heard an echoing snore. He stopped talking, and looked out towards the window. The rain was getting harder... Would it be gone by morning?
Roxas was just barely starting to get tired, when another loud crash of thunder struck near them again, causing light to flood their hut. The girls screamed again, and he got up, and looked at Namine, seeing that they had jolted up and was staring in fear at the window. "Namine, it's OK, it just struck the water near us!" He spoke quickly, as there was fear in her eyes, but she waited and heard nothing, and calmed down.
"...Y-yeah..." She whispered, but another crash thundered, and this time the whole place shook, and the shrieks echoed again.
"N-Namine!" He gasped, for when the light flooded over he could see the fear in her eyes. He got up, and found he could, for his other self was doing the same motions. He walked towards her, and sat next to her, placing his right arm around him. "It's okay..." He whispered.
"B-but..." Namine squeaked, as another roar of thunder blurted out, causing her to flinch again.
"Don't worry... It won't hurt us..." He mumbled, but another strike of lightning caused light to flood through again, causing her to flinch back, almost falling over, but he quickly caught her, and she dug her head into his chest, frightened.
He continued to stay by her side, for the rest of the night, even after she fell asleep.
Roxas blinked, and groaned quietly. Then, he remembered the events of last night. "Ah!!" He gasped, for he was still clinging to Namine, and blushed, as he let her go, and stared quietly at her sleeping body, which was finally calm. He smiled, and brushed a hand through her hair.
"...Mmm...?" She whispered, and he quickly withdrew his hand. She blinked, and yawned. Then, she got up, and looked at him. "R...oxas...?"
"Good morning." He smiled at her.
"Yeah... Morning!" She nodded, the fears of yesterday erased.
As they spoke idly, they got up and walked over to the door, and he opened it for her. She smiled, and walked through the door. He joined her, and their hands intertwined wordlessly.
