Chapter 0: Open up your senses.
"Ow my head!" Mumbled a voice
A spiky brown haired teenager slowly rose up from the cold, hard ground that we laid on. His pair of blue eyes, woke up scanning a dark, and dingy alleyway. The boy jumped up, his large yellow shoes. hitting the gravel pavement. He was cladded in a matching red jacket and long pants. His Crown necklace was still dangling around his neck, but on his cheats was a small black pin with a white cross that when you look harder looks like a skull.
"Okay that's it Sora, no more Sea Salt Ice Cream parties. No matter what Roxas and Xion say." Sora mumbled to himself making his gloved hands grab a hold of throbbing head.
He then looked around, realizing he had no idea where he was. Sora quickly dashed to find the nearest light source. He ran from the alleyway, which turned from right to left. Finally getting out of the Alleyway Sora found himself alone, totally alone. He looked around to find a large city, full of large towering skyscrapers. Granted they were not plastered with windows like normal, but covered in long, well drawn and beautiful graffiti.Sora could tell right away that this city was quite dark, having little light, and not even any stars in the sky. He looked at one building what had The Grim Reaper holding out a long sickle, with angel wings. Sora looked around trying to scan for his friends.
"Riku, Kairi….Donald, Goofy?! Master Aqua, Mickey, Roxas, Xion? Hellleeeooo! …..Anyone?" The boy yelled and hollered.
Still no one would respond to his words. He was alone in a world he didn't recognize. The city was eerily silent. Sora rubbed his eyes cause he thought he was seeing things. The whole city was starting to turn bright crimson red. Sora looked up to find a large swirling moon. It looked like an eyeball was staring at him. As he gazed at the moon Sora was starting to feel dizzy, sick, and weak. His heart, and Ven's heart inside of him were starting to stop beating. However, what snapped the boy out of this trance was a tap on his shoulder. The boy stopped gazing at the wicked moon and turned to find to his delight another person.
"Now, now, can't have our boy go crazy just yet." The high pitch voice giggled.
Sora looked at a tall, thin young man. He had pushed his long whitish hair out of his eyes. Sora looked down to see the boy was dressed in a white buttoned up shirt, tight black pants, and black and white shoes. The mystery child was playing touch screen cellphone.
"So your Sora, I take it? My, my The Keyblade knows how to pick em." The other boy said.
To Sora's confusion the boy tapped some buttons on his screen and Sora's Keyblade shot out his hand. The boy came in closer to examine Sora's main Keyblade.
"Let's see now, type Kingdom Key, very nice. That one was the first off the line in ten years. Balance of attack, defense, and magic. It's spiritual blade is very sharp, and it's polished. Well I can see why she's so attached to you." the boy said.
"Huh, how do you know my name and my Keyblade?" Sora asked.
"Slow as always Sora, but where are my manners. You may call me Joshua." The skinny boy introduced himself.
"You didn't answer my question, and I'm not slow." Sora thought to himself.
"Now I bet your wondering why I didn't answer your first two questions, well I have to answer more important questions that are in your mostly empty spiky head." Joshua explained.
"Is this guy just gonna keep insulting me?" Sora wondered.
"Yes, yes I am." Josh stated as if he was reading Sora's mind which made the boy jump a bit, giving the little snot an amused look on his pretty boy face.
"Okay so, where am I? What happened to my friends, and why can't I remember how I got here?" Sora asked.
Joshua snickered as he checked his phone again.
"Well in order: 1. You, Sora Branford are in The Dream Realm. A world literally made of people's dreams, and nightmares. where you are right now is in Neon City's Nightmare Realm. Think of Neon City as…..The World That Never Was mixed with Twilight Town, and Travese Town all mixed up. Also don't look up at the moon." The boy explained and warned.
Sora nodded his head remembering what happened last time.
"As for the second question, Well your friends in your reality are fine. However I can't say the same for your friends in here." Joshua started to say.
"Huh? Okay time out, I don't get it. What do you mean friends in here? I've never been here before." Sora asked.
"I was getting to that!" Joshua snapped making Sora shut it.
"Now as I said before, this is The Dream Realm. Think of it has an alternate world. With it's own version of You, Riku, Kairi, you get the idea. However these versions of your friends won't know you are. For all you know the Riku, and Kairi could love you, or hate your guts." Joshua stated.
"WHAT?!" Sora yelled out in despair .
"Okay, okay, maybe hate was too strong a word. However you do understand that you can't relay on your friends here to fight off the darkness here right?" Josh asked.
Sora put his hands over his head and smiled.
"What do ya mean, sure I can. I'll just have to start over that's all." Sora said trying to keep upbeat.
Josh giggled again.
"Yes, that won't be the only thing you have to "Start over." on."
"What do you mean by that?" Sora asked.
"Let's just say your going to have to go back to basics Sora. Look I'm getting tired of talking. So I'll just give you your gift, and send you on your way." The skinny boy muttered.
Joshua gave Sora a red box, with a green bow on top in his hands. The boy then shoved a pair of 3D glasses in his face and pushed him down.
"Have Fun Sora." The boy said as the Nightmare part of city had been washed away, as Sora closed his eyes.
Sora then opened his eyes, nearly blinded by the many hanging multi colored neon lights. The city now noisy with music and the many footsteps of people. He was now no longer alone, for he was being pushed around and tossed aside from large crowds of people. Rather then be stepped on, Sora joined a group of people, walking the street not really sure where he was going, looking at the street signs and many balloons that small children were carrying. The young visitor felt something move about. He checked to find he still had his gift. He was about to open it, when he heard a loud scream come from one of the groups of people.
Sora turned his head to find a shadow Heartless attacking a man. It ripped the heart out of him and started to make others like it.
"Wait! I thought Heartless weren't bad anymore?" Sora said out loud as the people ran away from the monsters.
Sora with sad eyes, summoned his keyblade, and put his gift somewhere safe.
"Back to basics Sora." He said to himself as ran to the fight.
He jumped into battle, whacking the Shadow Heartless into a wall. He then pointed the end of the Keyblade it the other Heartless.
"Fire!" Sora yelled.
Nothing happened, causing the Heartless to look at each other.
"Fire!" Sora said again.
"Um, Thunder….Blizzard?"Sora asked.
No spell would come out of his Keyblade. The Heartless quickly jumped at him.
"Guess I'm really back to basics!" Sora thought as he hacked and whacked at the shadows till they were blasted into darkness.
That was only the first wave as a six dusks and some enemies Sora was not familiar with. The new guys or girls looked like a mix between a dog, cat and some small horned animal. It was the color mix of purple and black. Sora would have called it cute, if not for it trying to kill him. Suddenly the gift Joshua gave Sora started to bounce and move. The box had be broken on the outside, and in a flash of light Sora was met with some backup. It was like the new beings, however it looked friendlier and cuter. The color was changed to blue and white as well.
Sora and his new pet worked on the new monsters, The blue one quickly, bite, whacked their bodies and jabbed them with it's horn. Sora went after the dusks, knowing their attack pattern. He waited, and then attacked seeing an opening. After five smacks Sora and his new pet were finished with the fight.
Many people were staring at Sora and his new pet.
"Look, that boy's beat up the Nightmares with that key." One voice said.
"Oh wow he's got a Dream Eater,lucky!" A child said.
"Can I have one Mom?" A another child asked it's mother.
Sora was starting to feel uncomfortable having so many people stare at him.
"Look!" Sora yelled, watching them all look where he pointed. He quickly made a dash for what he thought to be the plaza.
"So your a Dream Eater huh? Well that makes sense, since I'm in a Dream Realm and all." Sora said to it, while passing by the lighted palm trees
The marshmallow faced cat dog Dream Eater barked and whimpered. It jumped on him, licking his face.
"AH hey cut it out, aw! Your so cute, who's a good boy?" Sora said while petting his Dream Eater who's tail was wagging.
"Now what am I going to call you?" Sora asked.
He looked around to find a street vendor, but rather then sell hot dogs, his man sold chocolate covered marshmallows on a stick.
"How about Marshmallow, that sound good?" Sora asked.
The Dream Eater now known as Marshmallow barked and wagged it's tall, while purring.
"Well, why don't we explore the town!" Sora suggested.
The Dream Eater followed him as they walked around looking like a lost tourist.
Unknown to Sora someone was watching him. On top of the tallest building in Neon City was a man shaped figure, he was talking on his cell phone.
"Looks like we got another one! What? What do you mean, you lost the other one!? You zeta sons a dight, she was a freaking kid, handcuffed even! Well Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally, I figured top Reapers would be able erase one player! Forget I'll add them both to the heap myself!" The man ranted.
