Chapter Two Meet and Greet
"This can't "
"Be right "
"We're in Traverse Town!" Sora exclaimed.
Sure enough they found themselves smack down in the middle of Travers Town. Like always the gloomy town was shrouded by nightfall. "When'd you change, Goofy?" Donald asked.
"What about you?" asked Goofy.
Turning around Tian found Donald and Goofy were no longer in their casual clothes, but instead they were dressed in the same clothes they wore when the group first met. "Will you two stop doing that?!" Kuroi asked. His lilac eyes looked like they were about to pop out of his head. Well, the eye that wasn't covered by his bang's anyway.
"Doing what?" asked Goofy.
"Randomly changing outfits, with no real explanation as to why it happens! It's weird and confusing!"
"And you're making a big deal out of nothing," remarked Donald.
A rumbled was suddenly heard. Tian gripped her stomach and rubbed the back of her neck with the opposite hand. "Eh heh Sorry, we haven't eaten a go

Together in all these memories
I see your smile
All the memories I hold dear
Darling you know I love you till the end of time
All of my memories
Keep you near
In silent moments
Imagine you'd be here
All of my memories
Keep you near
The silent whispers, silent tears

Chapter One The Road Goes On
Tian rolled herself awake and opened her eyes to find tall grass. Rubbing her eyes she sat herself up. Kuroi's jacket slid off her shoulders. When did that get there?
She looked up to find Kuroi without his black jacket. Just a grey muscle shirt covering his upper body. Was he trying to prove he could be a gentleman. 'I swear if he even think's of trying that 'drape your coat over a water puddle' thing I'm gonna slug him,' Tian thought.
The girl sighed, and laid back down on her back to look up at the night sky. Tian and her friend, Kuroi, a boy, two years older than herself, who came from the same world she did, didn't become friends unt
Door to Darknes - Epilogue
Tian followed Sora as she, Donald, Goofy, and Kuroi walked down a dirt path along a clear meadow. The path was pretty long, and none of them really knew where it would lead. But that wasn't the question on Tian's mind right now. No, she was mostly thinking, when the heck did Donald and Goofy change cloths?
The two where dressed pretty casually in comparison to what they wore during this journey. She didn't see them change. They just wore different outfits when they started walking down the path. It was very distracting.
"Well, now what do we do?" asked Donald, breaking the silence.
"We've gotta find Riku, Long, and King Mickey," replied Sora.
"But, uh," Goofy began. "Where do we start lookin' for that there door to the light?"
"That " Tian said as the group came to a stop. "Is a really good question."
"Someone care to answer why we didn't come up with it sooner?" Asked Kuroi.
His friends let out a collective sigh and hung their bodies over. Couldn't Mickey have lef

Tian sighed. She was laying on her side with an arm under her head as an uncomfortable pillow. There were many thought's going through her head. How much of this journey was by chance? Was it even by chance that Zuan took her and Li-hua to Destiny Islands where she would meet and befriend another Keybarer and a Princess of Heart? That she would have a twin who carried a fragment of Kingdom Hearts? That she, herself, would be a Keybarer? Was any of this by chance? Or was it inevitable?
Well, she wasn't going to get her answers anytime soon. That much she was certain.
She stood beside Sora as he opened the door. A bright light blinded her for a moment, forcing her to cover her eyes. When the three islanders opened their eye's again, none of them could believe what they saw.
It was unmistakable. The clear sky's, the blue sea, the sand beaches, it was Destiny Islands. "This world has been connected," they heard. "Tied to the darkness soon

Chapter Twenty-Three I Still Believe
The group found the Beast almost as soon as they made it back to Hollow Bastion. "Where's Belle?" Sora asked.
"Still in the castle," Beast explained.
"Against her will?" asked Goofy.
"No, I think she stayed for a reason. The other Princesses are inside as well."
"I wonder why?" Donald thought out loud.
"Well let's go ask them," said Kuroi. "I don't think any of them would wan tto stay in the castle unless they felt like they had to."
"You may need my strength," said the Beast. "I'll go with you."
"Yeah, that might make thing's easer," muttered Tian.
There were more Heartless in the castle than before, not that it really surprised them. It was this point were Kuroi reviled his new weapon. It was a little like Leon's gun blade, but it was smaller in comparison. "When'd you get that?!" Tian asked, watching the older boy shoot down Heartless after Heartless.
"Bought it off some Moogle's while you and Sora were getting into a good book," Ku

Chapter Twenty-Two Our Hearts Are Connected
"Tell me what happened," Leon said.
They were in the Empty House with Aerith, Yuffie, and Zidane. The group explained what happened in Hollow Bastion. How both Tian and Sora had given up their hearts to save Yue and Kairi. What happened to Riku. How they never saw Long after that first meeting. Everything.
"So the darkness is flowing out of the Keyhole," Leon said, once the story was finished.
"No wonder there are more and more Heartless everywhere," said Aerith.
"The only way to stop them," Zidane began. "Would be--"
"To seal the Keyhole," Sora said, holding his Keyblade up. "Right?"
"Maybe," said Leon. "But no one knows what will happen once its sealed."
"We'll we can't just stay here," said Sora. "We have to do something."
"Long and Riku," Tian added. "They're still out there."
"That's right," said Leon. "You have two more friends to worry about. Riku's Keyblade must have been born from the captive Princesses' hearts--just like the

Riku walked up to Maleficent. "So," he said. His voice was a little morphed, but Maleficent paid no attention to this. "I see the path has emerged at last."
"Yes," replied the witch. "The Keyhole to the darkness."
"Unlock it and the Heartless will overrun this world."
"What do I care? The darkness holds no power over me. Rather, I use it's power to rule all worlds."
"Such confidence," Riku scoffed.
He held his hand up and summoned a peculiar Keyblade. It was black with a red grip, with it's teeth making the outline of a heart. "Oh," said Maleficent, almost admiring the Keyblade. But, neither the Keyblade or the Keyhole reacted to each other. "Impossible! The Princesses of Heart are all here! It must be her."
The witch turned to find Kairi, comatose on the floor. Rested against the banister was Yue. "Without her heart," Riku said, approaching the red-head. "She will never be able to release her power. As for Yue, if you want her to lead you to th

Chapter Twenty Master of the Keys
As soon as Tian stopped crying, she rushed to the gummi ship. Within moments they were back sailing through interspace. Tian rubbed her temples slightly. Her head was beginning to ach. She still couldn't remember who that man was, or if she saw what happened to Long that night. Or even why he was so grumpy that day.
"Don't push yourself," Kuroi said, pounding his fist onto her head slightly. "You already remembered a lot as it is."
"I'm not pushing myself," Tian responded.
"Then what's with that pained expression on your face?"
"I'm just trying to look for a little more."
"Gee, Tian, you already remembered most of your first few years," said Goofy. "I think that's enough for one day."
Tian sighed. "I guess "
Two newborn babies slept in their individual basinets. One of them turned their head to the side. Was that Tian? No. No. It was Yue.
Yue's eyes opened. She could see a ball of light floating in the middle of a blank stain glass
