Riku is in his room, flopped on his bed. The lights are off, and his hand is covering his eyes. His eyes still hurt - there's a little light coming from underneath the crack of the door, and it bothers him far too much.

He's pretty bored. But there's nothing to do about it right now, eh? He'll have to wait until later, and see if he can tackle the bar then.

There comes a soft knock at his door -- it sounds three times -- before there is a long pause.

Naminé, of course, is the one on the other side of the door. It took her a little time to figure out where exactly his room was, but she's fairly certain she's arrived at the right place.

Now, if only he would answer.

[identity profile] tall-dark-and.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 05:28 am (UTC)(link)
What, not answer? Riku doesn't have any way to be sure who's out there, but it has to be someone who'll make for a good distraction, right?

"Come in," he calls.

[identity profile] naminemory.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 05:31 am (UTC)(link)
Obeying his request, Naminé gently turns the knob of the door and pushes it forward.

She's a little overcome by the sudden darkness that she is plunged into. It will take a moment for her eyes to adjust.

"...Riku?"

[identity profile] tall-dark-and.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 05:37 am (UTC)(link)
"Namine!" Riku sits up, wincing at the light before grinning. "Hi."

He's not sure why she's here, but yaknow what? He doesn't really care why. Just as long as she's here!

She steps further into the room before slowly closing the door. The room is once more quite dark, but she's getting used to it. There is a soft smile on her face, and she approaches the bed.

"Are your eyes still hurting?" she asks concernedly.

[identity profile] tall-dark-and.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 05:47 am (UTC)(link)
"Yeah," Riku admits. He can't see her very well, and that hurts, too; but when he reachs for her hand, he can still feel her. That's comforting.

"I can deal, though."

[identity profile] naminemory.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 05:52 am (UTC)(link)
She nods her head, taking his hand and squeezing it gently. "I thought so," she says. "That's why I brought this. It should help a bit."

It's a piece of silky black fabric, long enough to make a useful blindfold. It should be only temporary, at least until he can figure out what is happening to him.

Her fingers hover above his face, near his eyes, the fabric spilling over her hand.

[identity profile] tall-dark-and.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 05:59 am (UTC)(link)
Riku looks a little surprised, but takes ahold of the blindfold. "You think so?" he asks, reaching for it.

[identity profile] naminemory.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 06:02 am (UTC)(link)
"Mmhmm," she says, sitting by the edge of his bed.

"Do you want me to help you with it?"

[identity profile] tall-dark-and.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 06:15 am (UTC)(link)
"Okay," Riku says. He doesn't necessarily need the help, but... hey. Any chance to be closer to her is a welcome chance.

[identity profile] naminemory.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 06:21 am (UTC)(link)
And closer, she will be.

She shifts a little on the bed so she's on her knees, facing Riku, the blindfold in one hand. Straightening a little, she leans towards him, her hands positioned on either side of his head with the blindfold between them. The cloth hovers before his eyes.

She has to lean a little closer in order to tie the blindfold behind him. From here, she can feel his warmth emanate towards her, and a strange sort of tension pushes and pulls her towards him.

It takes a moment for her to get it tied around his eyes, but she manages.

"There," she murmurs. "Is it okay?"

[identity profile] tall-dark-and.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 06:36 am (UTC)(link)
Riku blinks once, twice behind the blindfold. With the blindfold, it doesn't hurt anymore... but he's also seeing very differently.

"Yeah," he says, his voice a little slow. "It is."

[identity profile] naminemory.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 06:41 am (UTC)(link)
"I'm glad," she says, lowering herself once again to his eye-level, folding her hands in her lap.

"Can you see much? The material isn't very thick, but it's enough to get rid of most of the bright light."

[identity profile] tall-dark-and.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 06:45 am (UTC)(link)
"I can," Riku says, and smiles. "You're really pretty this way, too."

[identity profile] naminemory.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 06:49 am (UTC)(link)
Her cheeks redden a bit. "Oh, Riku," she mock-chides him, casting her eyes downwards, suddenly -- and a little surprisingly -- shy again, as though this is the first time he's said this to her.

[identity profile] tall-dark-and.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 06:53 am (UTC)(link)
Riku laughs, just a little. What he sees now is colours - almost too many colours - and he feels like they're just that much warmer, for a moment. Was she blushing?

"Pretty and cute," he says, and places a hand on her cheek.

[identity profile] naminemory.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 07:00 am (UTC)(link)
She reddens further, her hand reaching up to touch his.

"Have you been here all day?" she asks softly.

[identity profile] tall-dark-and.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 07:06 am (UTC)(link)
"Yeah," Riku says. "It's kinda lame, but I couldn't think of any solution.

But she had, hadn't she?

"Thanks."

[identity profile] naminemory.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 07:10 am (UTC)(link)
"It's okay," she says reassuringly. "You don't have to thank me. I just wanted to help you in any way I could."

She watches him for a moment, then. Quiet.

[identity profile] tall-dark-and.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 07:14 am (UTC)(link)
"But I want to thank you," Riku insists. He leans in and kisses her cheek.

Maybe she'll accept that method of thanking, instead.

[identity profile] naminemory.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 07:16 am (UTC)(link)
Hmm, she doesn't have much of a choice, does she? And as expected, she cannot help but smile in response.

"You're welcome, then," she replies.

[identity profile] tall-dark-and.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 07:26 am (UTC)(link)
"Good," he says, and grins. It's the sort of grin that isn't usually found on his face anymore... nothing tainting it at all, just bright and happy. But he's very relieved to finally be able to see something again.

And the fact she's here doesn't hurt, either.

"Anything else exciting going on?" He asks. He's not really inclined to go down there still, but it's nice to hear about it.

[identity profile] naminemory.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 07:31 am (UTC)(link)
She shakes her head, feeling a warmth from his smile. She loves it when he smiles; it's one of her favourite things to see because it fills her with such a wonderful feeling of happiness.

"Nothing, really," she replies. "I sat for a bit by the fireplace making you that blindfold before coming to give it to you."

[identity profile] tall-dark-and.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 07:36 am (UTC)(link)
"And if I'd thought of it, I'd have just ripped somethng apart," he comments. He's pleasantly surprised that she did more than that.

He shifts a little, so he's leaning against her shoulder.

[identity profile] naminemory.livejournal.com 2007-03-15 07:42 am (UTC)(link)
Another smile. "I know you would," she says amusedly. "So I couldn't let you go around looking like you got caught on the tattered curtains of the Beast's room."

She giggles softly, slightly leaning her head against him.
