Synopsis Edit

The next day, Kairi is searching for Sora, calling out to him to help her get ready for starting their voyage tomorrow. In the Secret Place, Sora is staring happily at cave drawings of him and Kairi and reminisces on how they ended up on the wall. When they were little, Kairi followed Sora into the Secret Place which Sora claimed was a secret to all but him and Riku and that no one was allowed in. However, he relents and grants Kairi access because she's special when they ended up drawing each other on the caves.

Sora is adding another drawing to the picture when a voice tells them that the world has been connected. Sora quickly hides his drawing from the cloaked figure as it continues to claim that the world will be eclipsed. Sora questions the man's claims and asks where he came from, but the cloaked figure only comments on how ignorant and unknowing Sora is. Kairi enters the Secret Place, stunning Sora as he quickly attempts to get her to leave the Secret Place without looking at his drawing. She tells him that they have to get ready for tomorrow and Sora show her the mushrooms he collected and glances back, noting that the cloaked figure had disappeared.

At the dock, Sora, Riku, and Kairi prepare to row back to the main island and decide to meet each other on time the next day. That night, in his room, Sora is packing the last of his supplies when he notices a storm approaching the island. He rows back to the island to check on the raft and notices Riku and Kairi's boats at the dock. Sora rushes ahead, oblivious to the creatures sprouting behind him. He finds Riku, alone, and asks him if Kairi is with him. However, Riku only smirks as he begins to be enveloped by Darkness.

Trivia Edit

  • Kairi finds Sora in the Secret Place, causing him to cover up his drawing and leave the Secret Place. In the game, the cloaked man mysteriously leaves and Sora must deliver the mushroom to Kairi, who waits for him on the raft.
  • Sora says he obtained mushrooms which was one of the items needed to complete Destiny Islands and trigger the scene with Ansem, Seeker of Darkness in the video game.
