Transcript[edit | edit source]
Axel: "You're early."
Roxas looks up to see Axel standing behind him.
Roxas: "No, you're just late."
Roxas sits down next to Axel.
Roxas: "Today makes 255."
Axel: "What's that about?"
Roxas: "It's been that many days since I first joined the Organization. Man, time flies."
Axel: "So, you got the number memorized, do you?"
Roxas: "Yeah. Have to hang onto something, right? It's not like I have memories from before the Organization. Don't you remember? I acted like a zombie."
Axel: "Right, that first week you could barely form a sentence. But come on, you're still kind of a zombie."
Roxas: "Oh, thanks!"
Axel: "Hey, Roxas. Bet you don't know why the sun sets red. You see, light is made up of lots of colors. And out of all those colors, red is the one that travels the farthest."
Roxas: "Like I asked! Know-it-all."
Roxas and Axel laugh.
Roxas: "Seriously, where is she?"
Roxas (in narration): "The destiny that is about to unfold actually started when we first met on the seventh day after I came here."
