The sound of the waves and the cold feel of water caused her to awaken. With weary eyes she scanned the area. It appears that she was in some kind of… island? Either way she had to move. Using her knee as support, she stood up, almost stumbling as she did, and made slow steps without any sort of direction at all.
What happened? Just a moment ago, she was with Squall, and then… then…
Her fingers pressed on to her eyelids. Why couldn’t she remember?
She looked around again. Didn’t seem like too many people inhabited this island, how on earth was she going to get out of here?
With Sora and Riku gone Kairi found herself aimlessly wondering their island often. It was boring…and very lonely. But then one day a message washed ashore, one from Mickey. It was a mission, one just for her. Perhaps with this she could prove to the others that she was strong enough to go with them…
And so today was the day when she was going to leave. A gummiship had arrived with some people on it to help her learn how to drive it and everything. She will show them…
“Hm?” She tilted her head. The ship was on their island so no one else saw it, and to get to it she had to walk across the shore. And there was a stranger there. Luckily, she didn’t seem like a threat… But nonetheless she approached her carefully.
“Who are you?” She asked the woman, noticing that she seemed scared herself. Scared…or maybe a bit lost?
She flexed about, a bit startled by the voice thrown behind her, but caught herself just in time to respond with a smile.
“Um, is this your island? My name is Rinoa,” she stated, uncertain whether she was to hold out her hand or not. Her question was rather abrupt and she didn’t want to intrude.
“Well… I don’t own it,” she said with a small laugh. “My name is Kairi.” She held out her hand, hoping to make friends with this new person. Because…she just felt as if she could trust this one.
Whether or not Riona shook her hand Kairi carried on. “Are you…from another world?”
