Every day since.
Lea had just been lucky enough to get Yen Sid's blessing...well more like disinterested dismissal allowing the keyblade weilder in training to take a 'spring break' of sorts and boy did Lea ever! At first Lea spent a great deal of time where he was at this very moment, here in Twilight Town. The craving for a sea salt ice cream had been gnawing at him so he had to scratch the itch. He was still bewildered that he even had a taste for the things. Typically Lea wasn't into sweets, but there was just something so right about the way he felt when eating the particular frozen treat that he bought them.
Bored out of his mind, Lea went to some other worlds. He went to Radiant Garden but it was nothing like he remembered it...at least not the way he'd rather remember it, and he found himself pretty quickly disappointed. He was no stranger to the idea that things change, but finding a semblance of belonging was proving to be difficult.
His travels led him to an odd place he'd never been before but you could hear the noise through the corridor there was so much cheer and commotion. How the heartless seemed to cower and shy away from the place was interesting in itself. Lea had to check it out. The next thing he knew he was watching a crazy wicked magic show. When the music and the dancing started up, Lea got swept up in it and he'd have been absolutely content with it. Even more so with the chance to show off on the stage in the Talent Show which he didn't win for some reason. Total crap. Even in all the fun and exhilaration, something totally unexpected and even a little scary happened. Roxas was there! They'd said their final goodbyes. Lea never expected to see him again. They'd both gotten into the dance off and when they spotted eachother again it was like they'd never been apart. It was like every awful thin Lea had ever said...well Axel said or did never happened. Roxas had closed the distance and threw his arms around Lea screaming his former name and all he could do was stand there like an idiot.
They were separated in the crowds, but seeing Roxas had seriously shaken Lea. The blonde boy had been so happy that Lea had kept his promise...but that was just it. It hadn't been his promise. It was Axel's. Roxas didn't even know the real him anymore. Lea never got a chance to correct Roxas...
Every day since...Lea has come to this spot, two sea salt ice creams ready to be eaten. He had to throw one away each day...and he was starting to wonder if maybe he'd just wanted that boy to be Roxas so badly that that's who he saw. As a grim look was beginning to cross the red head's face footsteps sounded on the clock tower balcony. Lea quickly wiped the moisture in his eye away with the back of his forearm trying to make it look more smooth like maybe it was just a bit of sweat on his forehead. "I was startin to think I'd imagined it." he confessed, unable to hide the very slight bit of hurt in his voice.
