Sora yawned as he walked. It was Halloween but he had been forced to work late. Late enough that he had to walk home through the graveyard to get to the bus on time. As he walked, he noticed a figure bathed in the moonlight.
It seemed to be male, though the longer hair made him wonder for a moment. He was twirling randomly in the moonlight, not really any specific path to follow. Sora slid silently behind a gravestone, closer to this mysterious figure.
He had hair the color of cool silver, and pale skin to match, looking supernatural in the moonlight. There was a soft smile that decorated his lips, looking happily enough at the light. His eyes were closed, but they opened once, before immediately closing again. The flash of color, Sora saw, was a pale Aqua.
He shifted slightly, but it caused him to fall. This in turn caused the figures head to snap immediately in his direction, seeing him. His look was cold, and full of pain. "you shouldn't be here." He said instantly, glaring at him. "Who are you?" He demanded, his tone harsh and commanding.
Sora stared stupefied, before finding his voice. "S-Sora Strife." He said, almost ashamed of how scared he sounded. The other man's facial expression softened as he looked at him, taking a small, tentative step towards him. "My name is Riku..." He said softly, taking another unsure step.
Sora stood slowly, dusting himself off and wiping off his bag. He opened his mouth to speak but Riku began talking again. "I thought no one came to Graveyards at night. So why are you here?"
The question had caught Sora off guard as he sputtered for an answer. "I-I was working late! I wanted a short cut!" And before he could stop himself he retaliated with, "Why are you here?"
Riku paused, before walking forward, another beautiful smile crossing his lips. "This is the only night I'm allowed out..." He said in a soft voice, looking down at him. "You would be dancing too if you only tasted the sweet fresh air that comes in the night only six hours a year..." He said, leaning back from leaning forward.
Sora stared at him. "Why? Are you being held captive or something?" He asked staring up at him, who in turn shook his head. "I'm not allowed to say...but you should hurry.." He said immediately afterwords, "Your bus is leaving."
"Then I'll walk home." Sora responded staring at him, catching sight of his wrist as he pointed. "You have marks on your wrists...does someone keep you in shackles?" He demanded, grasping his arm. Riku yanked his hand away glaring slightly at him.
"It is no problem of yours mortal." He spat, glaring at him, one that made Sora shake to his core. "Now go." He said forcefully pointing. He couldn't help it as his limbs immediately following Riku's command. "Wait!" He said, grasping out with the only thing that would still obey his command, grasping a thin chain that was around his neck, breaking as soon as he pulled. Riku turned, staring into the moonlight and ignoring his yells.
Sora didn't remember even going to bed as he awoke and found himself there. "Riku~" He said as soon as he sat up. Was...had it been a dream..? He brought a hand up to rub his eyes, but once he did, he saw a small silver chain that was in his hand. He stared at it, hurriedly pulling it so he could look at it. There was thin lettering on it that looped and intertwined with other letters.
Sora stared, his eyes widening. No wonder he had- But... "Riku!" He said again. closing his eyes and allowing it to hit down on the shelf of his bed. Who knew what he was going through right now? Simply because Sora had taken his chain.
What had he done...?
