"I Remember You"
There are only 7 days left before my summer vacation ends.
“For this vacation, how about the three of us go to the beach?”
I remember saying that. The three of us...who was that? I forgot everything. When I stood in front of Sora, it came back to mind.
I thought I recalled everything, but the truth is---something important was missing.
At that time, there were a lot of things I didn’t know about. Axel even explained to me what a summer vacation was. It was my first time hearing about it since I joined the Organization. There are vacations in the Organization too, I thought it was weird. Since it was so sudden I didn’t know what to do, so I went to the clock tower to eat ice cream. Axel was there too, the two of us saw Hayner and the others playing, though I didn’t know their names at that time.
“The kids from the city are on summer vacation--no, it’s still early.”
“Summer vacation…? What’s that?”
“A dream come true, that’s what---a whole month off.”
This is what Axel told me, from a memory of his time as a human, but I didn’t have any of those---I felt odd and uneasy.
“Most kids spend summer vacation just goofing off with their friends. I hadn’t really thought about it much since becoming a Nobody.”
I wonder if Axel had friends when he was a human. I only had Axel as a friend. That’s what I thought, but then I remembered.
I wanted to run away from the Organization.
“Your mind’s made up?”
Even Axel’s question made me stop. I couldn’t trust him either, after all.
“Why did the Keyblade choose me? I have to know.”
“You can’t turn on the Organization! You get on their bad side and they’ll destroy you!”
I finally stopped in my tracks when Axel started shouting.
“No one would miss me.”
After stating that, I walked away, though I didn’t have any destination in mind. I didn’t know where would be best so my steps led me to the usual clock tower.
And when I arrived there, a girl whom I’ve forgotten was here---Xion.
“Roxas, this is Sora.”
The girl under the hood wasn’t Xion; her face changed to someone’s I didn’t recognize. And it was the boy I’ve wanted to meet.
“You’re next Roxas, Don’t you see? This is why I was created.”
Once she shed her coat, Xion became a puppet.
I didn’t want to fight with Xion, but she charged at me.
"Please Roxas---destroy me."
While I was fighting I lost sense of everything. Who was I fighting? Little by little I forgot important things.
Then I realized that in front of me there was a black-haired girl I didn’t recognize, who collapsed.
“Who are you...again? It seems like I’m forgetting something really important.”
The girl’s eyes were slowly closing.
“You’ll be better off now, Roxas.”
I held the girl’s body in my arms.
“Am I...the one who did this to you?”
“No...It was my choice...to go away now. Better that, than to do nothing...and let Xemnas have his way.”
She placed her hand on mine.
“Goodbye, Roxas. See you again.”
Her lips were pulled in a small smile.
“I’m glad...I got to meet you. Oh..and of course, Axel, too. You’re both my best friends. Never forget. That’s the truth.”
At that moment it dawned on me. It was Xion.
“No! Xion...Who else will have ice cream with?!”
But Xion was disappearing.
I was left with a single thalassa sea shell.
After that, to bring Xion back, I fought with Riku, but I lost all my memories and I was put in Twilight Town. Then I was standing in front of Sora, and I thought I recalled everything. But it wasn’t the case.
Now I remember everything.
I remember you, Xion.
