Eternal Fruit

A (no, no, goddamnit Meg this is all YOUR fault) Kingdom Hearts Fic

By Jaelle

Disclaimer: Disney and Squareenix own Kingdom Hearts, and me.

Pairings: Sora/Riku/Kairi. Also known as the "I couldn't make up my mind, so I threw them all in together" pairing.

Spoilers: Nope. I've only just finished Monstruo, so I have no idea how the game ends. (Don't tell me!!! I'm determined not to spoiler for once!)

Smiling shyly, Riku split the Paopu fruit carefully into three pieces and handed the other two to Sora and Kairi. His two friends grinned back cheerfully, and he felt warmth rise up inside his chest at their easy acceptance of him.

“Are you ready?” He asked nervously. “There’s no going back once we’ve done this.”

Sora reached out and grasped his free hand. “It’s fine.”

“It’s what we want,” Kairi added, leaning back against him.

“On three,” Sora proposed. “One... two... THREE!”

They all bit into the fruit, tearing off large bites and licking the juice as it dribbled down their hands and faces. Daringly, Riku leant forward and gently sucked some of the juice off Sora’s chin. Sora startled and flushed bright red. Kairi watched them both with a grin on her face, deliberately letting some juice dribble down her own chin. Riku took the hint, and caught it, his tongue tickling her and making her giggle.

They all took a moment to savour the taste of the rare fruit, and paused.

An odd expression spread over Sora’s face, and he avoided the gaze of the others. Riku looked incredulously at the fruit in his hand, while Kairi went pale.

Sora swallowed manfully. “Um, Riku, are you sure this Paopu is ripe?”

Kairi gagged slightly and choked down her mouthful. “Gah! Water! Water!”

Riku also swallowed his piece of fruit and shuddered. “There must be less disgusting ways to bind ourselves together for all eternity,” he coughed.

“Yeah,” Sora agreed.

“Next time, let’s just use rope.”


A/N: You have no idea how close you were to having the sentence: “They all masticated together” appear in this story.
