Kairi! shouted a boy with brown spiky hair and sky blue eyes.
Kairi stroked her hair away from her face and smiled. Whats up Sora?
Sora stood in front of her and said, Have you forgotten? Today is Christmas eve!
Kairi gasped with shocked, Oh my god! I almost forgot!
Sora took Kairi by her hand and said, I know how to make this Christmas the best Christmas ever!
Kairi studied him with her ocean eyes. How?
We can go to Christmas Town! said Sora excitedly, Donald and Goofy left the Gummi Ship at my disposal so we can go anywhere we want!
Really! said Kairi with an excited jiggle Isnt that where you saved Santa Claus from that Oogie Boogie?
Sora nodded. Yeah! So do you want to come? he asked.
Then Kairi suddenly gave a shiver. But that means we have to pass through Halloween Town!
Sora looked at her curiously. And your point? he asked.
I get so scared when we meet Jack Skellington. she said with a shiver.
Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King and the Knight of Terror, was always thinking of something scarier for every Halloween. He got a bit of Christmas Fever but he was cured.
Oh, Sora taunting her, is little, scared Kairi afraid of some giant skeleton?
Kairi gave him a friendly punch on the shoulder and cried, Shut up! It just that, she hesitated before continuing, That he gives me the creeps!
Sora put his arms around her. Its okay, I am there to protect you.
Kairi let out a giggle. Okay Sora, where do we meet?
Sora thought for a while, and then said, At the Island at eight.
Ok, Kairi said, I hope my grandmother allowed.
To Kairis astonishment, her grandmother allowed her to meet with Sora provided there was no naughty dalliance between them.
I know he is a good lad, shouted the old lady, but sometimes young men can be so lusty!
Kairi just grinned and waved goodbye to her grandmother. She picked up her handbag and walked to the harbor. As planned, Sora was waiting for her with a boat that he borrowed from Tidus.
So, Sora said with a smile, she allowed you?
Kairi smiled back. I was surprise that she allowed me so quickly.
Lucky, Sora said, I had a lot of trouble with mom. She kept on whining that I should help her with the Christmas tree. He shrugged and then asked, So should we get going
Kairi nodded as she embarked the boat. Sora rowed to the Island.
Man! It since a long time I had driven on the Gummi ship! remarked Sora.
The Gummi ship was a ship that can travel to any world. Although it is small, the drivers compartment was small and there were a kitchen, bathroom and guestroom. Kairi, sat on one of the drivers chairs.
Are you sure you remember how to drive, Sora? Kairi doubtfully asked.
Sora grinned. I can drive with blindfolds on my eyes!
Without warning, the Gummi ship shot up and entered Hyper-Space.
This place hasnt change! exclaimed Sora.
Sora and Kairi were now in Halloween Town. The town was strangely decorated with unholy mistletoe and a tree that supposed to be a Christmas tree was decorated with bones and pumpkins.
Looked as if Jack is also celebrating Christmas. commented Sora.
Kairi just nodded, shivering a bit. Sora was dressed in his usual vampire suit while Kairi was dressed as a succubus. Sora rang the bell on Jacks house; it gave laughter of skulls. The door slowly opened. Standing at the door was a lanky skeleton, wearing a Santa suit.
Sora! the skeleton said in a toothless smile, Kairi! Welcome back! And Merry Christmas!
Kairi resisted a shudder while Sora grinned back. I see youre ready for Christmas, Jack.
Of course Im! Jack said with a laugh, I was about to visit Sandy Claws when you arrived!
Sora shook his head. Jack still cant remember Santa Claus name. Kairi intervened before Jack could notice Soras disproval. Why not we go to Santa Claus now?
A great Idea! said Jack, I always wanted a new gravestone for my Garden and Sally always wanted a forget-me-not flower. Also, Zero wants a bone and
Jack continued walking and ranting while Sora and Kairi followed him. Sora gave her a meaningful look while Kairi giggled.
Welcome again my Children! boomed a merry voice.
Santas workshop was brightly warmed by the cosy fireplace in the room. Elves were running here and there making preparation for Santas sleigh. Further in the room, there were noises of machines packing toys. In the room, there was a fat and jolly man with a long white beard, wearing a red suit and inspecting a list.
Hello Sandy Claws! shouted Jack, we want to see if were on your list!
Nodding and smiling warmly, Santa looked at his list. After a few minutes, Santa turned to Jack and said, Well Jack, you have been good this year so youre definitely in my list.
YAHOO! shouted Jack as he jumped with joy.
Kairi, Santa said as Kairi stepped forward nervously, You have been a good girl as you helped your grandmother all the time. However, Santa looked at Kairi, It says here that you lied to your teacher that you have completed your homework but you didnt finish it.
You should be ashamed of yourself, Kairi! teased Sora.
Kairi turned at him and hissed, Shut up!
As for Sora, Santa continued, Although you saved the world from evil, you stole sea-salt ice-cream from a ten year boy. Very shameful indeed.
Sora covered his face in embarrassment and groaned. Kairi, with a satisfied look on her face, lectured him teasingly, Shame on you, Sora! Imagine, stealing ice-cream from a kid!
Nether less, Santa said with a smile, you both are still well-behaved and obedient, so you two are on my good list. Right, Santa said as he stood up, Write down what you want for Christmas on a piece of paper before I make my delivery.
Immediately, Sora, Kairi and Jack wrote what they wanted on a piece of paper. After writing their wishes and folded the piece of paper, they handed it to Santa. Santa pocketed the papers and said, I will deliver your presents when Im at your house. Well, I have to do my delivery. You better go now and Merry Christmas!
After saying Merry Christmas and farewell to Santa Claus and Jack, Sora and Kairi went back to the Gummi Ship.
It was Christmas Day! Soras house was brightly lighted as the small cottage was crowded with the islanders making the Christmas party merry. The dining table was ladled with a giant Christmas pudding, small cakes, jellies and a giant roasted chocobo, with brown gravy and baked potatoes. Everyone was having a great time telling stories and playing games. When the noise was too much, Sora pulled Kairi into a deserted hallway. When they were away from the din, Sora turned to Kairi, who was wearing a Santa hat.
So what did you asked from Santa? he asked with a smile.
Kairi hesitated before answering, What I always wanted for Christmas, Sora, was to be with you forever and ever.
Sora took Kairis small hands. Kairi, which was what I always wanted, to be at your side at all time.
The two of them looked at each other lovingly, holding each others hands. Then smiling, Kairi hold up mistletoe above them. Their presents from each other, was a gentle kiss on each others lips. After they make-out, they hugged tightly, their warm bodies making it a comfortable Christmas night.
