RoxasI have no heart
A tortured soul
These white walls
Are where I call home
The monsterous beings
They fall by my blade
Their hearts are all caputured
For his evil need
Memories dragged up
From times I don't know
A boy stands in red
With a key like my own
With each new world
The memories get stronger
But so does she
And I won't last much longer
I long to be back
In the usual spot
With the icecream in my hand
And my friends sat next door
That will never happen
She's joined Kingdom Hearts
And Xion's no more.
The Aftermath: Part 13"What are you doing?"
"I would ask the same thing, but I'm busy not breaking my hairbrush!"
I'm trying to get the tangles out of my hair.
I toss and turn a lot, and long hair doesn't help the situation.
Raph is leaning on the door frame.
Complaining about how long it takes me to get ready.
It only takes me five minutes, but brushing my hair takes up most of that time.
"Why don't ya get it cut?"
"No. When I was five I had it cut as short as a boy's."
"Yeah. All 'cause I got headaches in the sunlight. It was really hot that year. Well, hot for England."
"Still, it's gotta be stupid. All the wierd things are falling out of your brush."
"I know. Why are you even in here?"
"You get up really early like sensei, I just wanted to ask what we're going to do."
"Carry on as normal." I say, putting my brush down on the drawers.
"I am as sure as your face is green. Now shoo. I would like to get out of my pyjamas at some point before tomorrow."
He goes and shuts the door beh
The Aftermath: Part 12"She's simply suffering from shock." Donnie says.
"What did you do?" Leo asks Raph.
"I didn't do nothing!" He protests angrily.
"Actually, Raph, you used a double negative, saying you didn't do 'nothing' means you did something, and-"
"Thank you Donnie." Leo says, then he looks to me. "RJ?"
"Oh, I was standing on a ladder, and it came out from under me. I was able to stick to the ceiling, but it did shock me."
Ok. Blatant lie, I know.
I have no clue what else to say, though.
"You're ok to go to bed now." Donnie says, slightly deflated at being cut off.
I get up and go to my room, shutting the door behind me.
I cannot believe he actually did it!
I cannot belive I reacted like that!
What the shell is wrong with me?!
I change into my pyjamas and out my hair up into a bun.
It was annoying me.
Getting out my book, I sit on the bed.
It's a really good book.
Throne of Glass.
But I'll be damned if I can focus on it at all.
I plug my headphones in.
The Aftermath: Part 11I stop dead and turn round.
Raph's turned away, hunched over, fists clenched.
"W...what did you say...?"
"I said I love you, ok? There, that's what I wanted to say. You can go now..."
I walk over to him cautiously, trying not to crush him to death with joy.
"No, no. I won't go, Raph... just... how long?"
I put a hand on his shell. "How long have you...?"
"I don't see why it matters. You're tied to this stupid promise."
"Only because I thought you'd be disgusted by the very idea!"
He looks at me, confusion in his bright green eyes. "I could never be disgusted by it!"
I try to fight a huge bubble of joy welling up in my throat.
"It was... I guess, a lot more than a week ago..." He says.
"Well, that's good. I thought it was just on a whim."
"No, it wasn't. Though the accident in the dojo was an accident."
I lean against the water tower and run a hand through my hair.
"I thought that if I became best friends with you, it would cover my feelings."
"But that didn't wo
The Aftermath: Part 10Ok. After her shift.
I'm not gonna be a chicken.
I'll tell her this time.
I stroll along the rooftops.
Ok, I don't normally do any kind o' 'strolling', but hey, I'm thinkin'.
Don't gimme that look.
I think more than some people.
Like Mikey. I think more than he does.
I keep walking until I find my little hideout.
This place is where I go when I'm fed up of everythin'.
I would have come here sooner, but...
I guess I just wanted to stay near RJ.
Ok, I admit it.
I've gone all sappy 'cause o' this...
Damn you, mushy stuff.
Anyways, I'll tell her.
I'll bring her here and tell her.
That way nobody can walk over, and she won't get too nervous.
Ehh, her shift's almost over, so...
I'd better get going.
Ok, Raph, time to go.
Not gonna be a chicken.
Not gonna chicken out.
The Aftermath: Part 9We're all sat in the main room.
Raph has finally made an appearance.
That... that song that RJ has been listening to nonstop.
Me and Emma peek over my blueprints to watch it unfold as RJ walks in.
"Raph?" She says.
"I thought you hated that song."
"Yeah, I do! But it's in my frickin' head now."
We wait for more, but they simply pass each other.
This is getting frustrating.
"Raphael, you are to take her up to the surface. No complaints."
Why is sensei doing this?!
It's getting seriously annoying!
I shift into a human and walk down the tunnels with him.
"Sorry, about that today. I erm..."
"It's ok, Raph." I say, putting my hands up defensively.
We get up to the surface.
"Erm, RJ, I..." He begins
The Aftermath: Part 8 "Yame! You are dissmissed."
"Hai, sensei." We all say.
But I gotta stay behind.
I need some of sensei's wisdom.
"Raphael, what is wrong?"
"Can I talk to you, sensei?"
Sensei looks surprised.
I can see why, I mean, I don't actually talk to him that much about stuff.
"You may. What would you like to talk about?"
"Is it ok to break a promise?"
"Only if it would be better, why?"
"I made a promise, and, well... I would rather break it than live like this."
"Is this about Rhiannon?"
I look up at him. "Sensei?! How do you know?!"
He chuckles. "I believe Rhiannon came in yesterday with a similar problem."
Damn, I can't stop that little bubble o' hope spring up.
"If you are talking about the same promise, then..."
"What should I do?"
"You do what you think is right, Raphael."
