Chapter One: Just a Vacation at the Beach

The gulls flapped around the island making their usual noise, while the ocean water lapped my toes. My friends and I were at the beach for spring break. Riku, Sora, Namine, Kairi, Axel and myself. That's all of us. Oh yeah, and Roxas, but he isn't here yet. Probably getting sea-salt ice cream for us. He is always sweet like that, but so is Sora. We all pitched in munny to get a house for two weeks in the Destiny Islands before going back to Travese Town High School. The guys were playing volleyball, girls against boys, and they were short one girl. They asked me to play and when I said no, they made one of the guys leave. They chose Axel. He was mad at first, but he soon cooled down and came to sit by me. Axel is like a older brother to me, but lately he is acting weird around me.

"Hey, you ok?" he asked.

"Yeah, just thinking." I said keeping the conversation short.

"What are you thinking about?" he asked, annoying me.

"Nah-uh." I shot back at him.

He looked at me with the biggest puppy eyes ever. I couldn't resist and I guessed I could tell him. "I'm thinking that you're too mean to tell." I said smiling evilly.

"Aw, come on! You can tell me!" he said with a pout.

"Fine! Just stop giving me those puppy eyes." I punched him playfully on the arm. "I'm thinking about a dream I had."

"What was it about?"

I knew he was trying to get me to tell, but I didn't want to. It might do him some good to know and maybe he will leave me alone, I thought. "It was about..." I didn't get to finish my thought before Roxas drove up.

"Ice cream!" Axel yelled. He grabbed my hand but I didn't want to go. So he picked me up, slung me over his shoulder, and ran to Roxas.

"You bum! Put me down!" I yelled at him, pounding my fists on his back. It seemed to have no effect on him.

When he got to Roxas he put me down. I crossed my arms and pouted. "Aw, don't be that way. I just brought you here so you can get some ice cream."

I turned to Roxas and jerked an ice cream from him. He looked at me and I saw the sincerity in his eyes. "I'm sorry, Roxas. Axel made me mad. I'm sorry I took it out on you. Here..." I said, giving him a hug.

I turned around and slapped Axel on the back of his head.

"Ow! What was that for?" he asked.

"For taking me against my will." I said leaving him alone and licking my ice cream. I went to Sora's car, got an umbrella and went back to my spot. When I got back to my spot I looked around. Everyone was playing once again and this time they were even with Roxas on the girl's team. I noticed a small shape near the trees on the opposite side of me. It looked like a boy about my age, maybe sixteen. I got up and started to walk that way when Axel saw me.

"Hey where you going?" he asked.

"For a walk. I'll be back in a little bit."

They believed me and went back to their game. When I got closer I could see it was a boy with blond hair, a guitar, and some white beach shorts with black flames. He didn't notice me and kept playing. When he stopped he looked up and he saw me. He started to get up and walk away when I stopped him.

"Why?" he asked.

"Because I thought it was wonderful. Please play more."

So he sat back down and played something else. I fell into to the rhythm of his music and I just gazed up at him. When he stopped, I was still like that.

"Are you ok?" he asked.

I immediately fixed my expression. "Yeah. Who are you?"

"I am Demyx. And who are you?" he asked.

I thought about what to tell him. "My name is..." Once again I never finished a thought.

"Hey, Mickey. Who is that?" Namine shouted.

"This is Demyx. Demyx, these are my friends. Namine, Kairi, Sora, Roxas, Riku and that guy still walking is Axel." I said finishing up.

"Hi. Well, nice meeting you, but I have to go." he said walking off.

"Wait! Can't you stay?" Kairi asked.

"No. I have to get back to my friends," and with that he left.

"Who was that?" Axel asked as he finally arrived.

"That was Demyx." Sora said.

Axel looked angry and confused. "Oh." was all he said.

Roxas shrugged his shoulders and looked at Namine. "We should be getting back." Namine said, and we all agreed with her. We raced back to the house and soon after we were all asleep.
