[Drabble] A Taste of Home - Non-JRock, Kingdom Hearts II, Riku/Sora  
Title: A Taste of Home
Author: Kagome
Prompt: Fruit
Rating: PG
Warnings: Heaping spoonfuls of fluff.
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Riku/Sora
Word Count: 548
Notes: Post-Kingdom Hearts II drabble (kinda). I couldn’t just write Axel/Roxas without contributing a little to my other favorite pairing from Kingdom Hearts. Prompt given to me by my friend Santanna, who unfortunately does not have an LJ. ^__^; Enjoy the sweetness.

Upon returning to Destiny Islands, Riku discovered it was the little things – the things he’d always taken for granted before – that he’d missed the most: He’d missed the sound of the waves; he’d missed the feel of sand between his toes; he’d missed the taste of pineapple (and perhaps he’d had a bit too much of that today—he was full now and pretty sure he’d be skipping lunch this afternoon); he’d missed the smell of the ocean; he’d missed Kairi’s smile and Sora’s laughter.

He had missed the comfort of having Sora by his side. He’d missed how they always seemed to communicate perfectly, even when neither of them said anything at all.

Silences between them had never been uncomfortable, and today was no different. Riku and Sora were laying side-by-side, flat on their backs, gazing at the clouds and listening to the sea. They hadn’t spoken since they’d had their fill of pineapple, but that was okay—sometimes words just weren’t necessary.

Nothing had really changed here. Riku could almost say that everything was exactly as it had been the day he’d left, but that was okay too, because he’d learned how to appreciate the little things that he’d previously overlooked.

As for the things that he’d already appreciated… Well, he only cherished those things even more now.

“Riku?” Sora asked quietly, rolling over onto his stomach and propping himself up on his elbows, peering curiously down at the older boy, their faces now mere inches apart.

“Hmm?” Riku replied just as quietly, meeting the brunette’s gaze and holding it.

“You’re real, right? I’m not dreaming this time?” Sora appeared to be studying Riku’s features intently, even as he lifted a hand and placed it on Riku’s chest, directly above his heart, as though he needed some tangible confirmation that this was indeed reality.

Riku half-smiled, both amused at and touched by Sora’s gesture. “I can pinch you to prove you’re not dreaming, if you want.”

Sora wrinkled his nose in an obvious gesture of distaste. “No thanks. Not fond of being pinched.”

Riku’s half-smile became a full smile and he lifted one hand, tangling his fingers into soft brown locks. “I know what you are fond of, though.” And without further warning, he pulled Sora down for a kiss.

He’d missed this, too—kissing Sora. He’d missed how Sora wouldn’t hesitate to kiss him back; he’d missed how Sora would shiver in his arms when he deepened the kiss; he’d missed the way Sora tasted: Sweet (partly due to the pineapple, Riku knew—he could still feel the stickiness of it on Sora’s lips) and real and also….

It was Sora who drew back first, though he seemed to do so reluctantly. “You taste like pineapple,” he informed after a moment, grinning one of those silly grins of his.

“Yeah?” Riku asked, rediscovering (for about the thousandth time) that that silly grin was really quite contagious. “You wanna know what you taste like?”

“What?” Sora curled closer, nuzzling at Riku’s neck. “You’re not going to say something mean, are you?”

Riku chuckled and shook his head. “You taste like home, Sora.”

Which was only fitting, because home and Sora, in Riku’s opinion, had always been one and the same.

It was good to be home.

Am I the only one that could totally see this happening? XD I know I can’t be~.

*flails and melts into a happy puddle of goo*

No, you're not. ^^ It's way too easy to picture. I... actually kept waiting for something like this to happen when I was playing the games, even though I knew that, of course, they wouldn't put it in the game. *dork desu* XD

Riku chuckled and shook his head. “You taste like home, Sora.”

That is just... so perfectly perfect. :P

I really like this. Cuz, yeah, Riku seems the type that would take all the little things for granted until he didn't have them anymore. *nods*
Kagome_newworld on August 11th, 2008 03:01 pm (UTC)
I figured this one would make you happy. ^_^ <333

*is a dork too* I swear, those games are a bit of a tease. Don't you think so? From the opening scene of KHI all the way to the ending of KHII. I mean, when I saw the KHI opening, I was like: "Woah. Those two are.... THIS GAME IS SO SLASH-FRIENDLY!" XDXDXDXD

And then even the way they fight together, and that last battle with Xemnas andandandand Riku being all mushy there at the end. *snicker* I could ramble about this forever, seriously.

That is just... so perfectly perfect. :P

*blush* Thank you. ^_______^

I thought it was really fitting, too--for Riku to take the little things for granted. It's part of why he left Destiny Islands in the first place... because he was getting bored.

HOMG. *____________*

It was good to be home.

That's what the perfect kiss tastes like. XDDD OMG KH. *squees and dies* I don't find a lot of good KH fanfics out there and the ones I've read were so bad that I was tempted to write my own fic. But you saved me the trouble. 8D! j/k! XD

I love how you wrote them, IMMENSELY. ♥
Kagome_newworld on August 11th, 2008 03:03 pm (UTC)
*smiles and cuddles* Yeah, I think so, too. ^_^ And aldkfjwpoeitjwpotij no, there aren't a whole lot of good KH fanfics out there and since I've been a huge fan of the games for years, I figured it was about time I got off my lazy ass and contributed. XD; Of course, there are amazing KH authors out there whose works I don't think I could ever compare my own to, but. *shrug* At least I'm doing something? XD


Thank you, darling. *snuggle* Glad you liked their characterizations, and my little drabble. <33333333

silver_impulse on August 20th, 2008 06:53 am (UTC)
i can see
yes, i can totally see them together. in KH even though kairi seems to be the heroine i think riku and sora have a much better connection (kairi=mary-sue) and what would be better then too attractive boys together?
Kagome: Aoi - Watch Me_newworld on August 20th, 2008 12:18 pm (UTC)
Re: i can see
I agree completely. ^_^ I don't dislike Kairi... I just... eh. I prefer the idea of Riku/Sora as opposed to Sora/Kairi. XD

Thank you very much for reading. <3
