Roxas has been getting weaker since the castle. I thought things would be better once we found Xion. But it has only gotten worse. I don’t know what’s happening, but I fear time is running out. I have to make my decision, or everything will fall apart.
I decided to confront Xion. I found her at Twilight Town, in front of the haunted mansion. She was staring up at the top left window, in which the room was shrouded with white curtains. She seems to be thinking, debating. I slowly approached her.
Xion jumped and whirled around in fright. I raised my hands in defense.
“Easy! I’m not here to fight you” I explained, “I need to talk to you.”
Xion relaxed a little, pulling her black hair behind her ear.
“Xzylair,” She said, timidly, “I…wasn’t expecting you to try and bring me back.”
I shook my head.
“It’s because I wasn’t planning to.”
Xion was surprised.
“Xion, I know what you are.”
“You…you do?” She stammered.
“I know you are a part of Sora, both you and Roxas. You’re the reason why he’s weakening.”
“How long have you known?” She asked.
“A while” I replied, “But I knew it wasn’t my place to say, and not because I’m Number XIV.”
Xion was quiet and hung her head, folding her hands together.
I took a step forward.
“Xion, I…I want to apologize for the way I’ve acted” I said, slowly.
Xion lifted her head in surprise.
“When I first came to the Organization, I didn’t trust anyone, especially when it involved Roxas. I was confused, and scared. I…I was afraid you…and Axel…Would take Roxas away from me…”
I nodded, embarrassed.
“But I was wrong. That was a lie. Like Axel said: ‘Just because you and him aren’t my best friends, doesn’t mean you can’t be my friends at all’.”
I walked up to her, and took her hands.
“I’m so sorry Xion. Can…Can we start over? Can you forgive me?”
Xion raised her eyes at me, deep blue, darker than Ventus and Roxas’, but still held all the sadness and wonder. Then, she nodded.
I smiled in surprise.
Xion smiled a little.
And with that, Xion and I resolved to visit Riku, and Naminé, together. Even if I couldn’t be friends with her long, I could still support her, in however way I could.
