“I thought the Keyblade would protect him.” It hurt to get the words out. “That’s what it’s for, right? Killing all the nasty stuff in the Multiverse. And it did. For a while.” Axel shuddered. “But when DiZ had him in that virtual Twilight Town – Roxas forgot he had the Keyblade.”
A sharp hiss from the other side of the rock. “Xemnas got to him there?”
“I don’t know.” No, no wailing. Wailing bad. “All I know is, when I tried to grab him… I forgot the plan.” He almost wanted to chuckle at the irony. “I forgot. So I let him go. That’s what friends do, right? I let part of Xemnas walk right into Sora and make itself at home. Now what the hell do I do, huh? Everybody’s counting on Sora, and I….” He couldn’t say it.
I have to kill him.
“Everything you love will die….”
“It won’t come to that.” Vinnie’s voice was firm. “Merlin and Aeris are already working on the problem. They’ve contacted others who knew of Xehanort. His Majesty has been warned.” A sigh. “If the worst comes to pass… Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather will cast him into an enchanted sleep. We will find a way to save him.”
It hurt to hope. It hurt.
