Completely, and utterly at peace.
That was what Riku hardly felt, in other worlds. Calm was not even a feeling that hardly, if not at all, came upon him. Perhaps that was due to his own nerves and tendency to worry too much, but it still rang true none the less. Never did the young wielder feel at peace in other worlds or places where his worries were abound.
All except here, that is.
A content sigh brushed through Riku’s parted lips, as they curved into a pleasant and warm smile; basking in the sunlight that beamed down upon his figure. The light was apparently bright through closed eyelids, though he cared little. It felt like ages since the Key-Bearer had felt the sun on his face. Especially a sun as great as the Islands held. It felt even longer than ages, since the young man had heard the familiar sound of waves overlapping each other; washing up upon the shore, and slapping against the wet sand that remained settled there.
The Islands were the one place where serenity was abundant. At least, for Riku. Ironic really, considering how he felt about the small and closed off world at one point. How he ever thought that this place was a ‘Prison’ would continue to baffle him. Now, it pained the young wielder to leave such a beautiful and warm scene. Though he wouldn’t have to leave for a while, really.
He had only just arrived.
