Title: Chocolate Calendar
Author: sky_wanderer (Alantie)
Characters: Sora, Kairi, Riku
Summary: Never leave Sora alone with chocolate
"You know, this idea isn’t going to work."
Kairi turned from her new purchase to glare at Riku. "What do you mean it won’t work?" she demanded, holding the parcel close to her chest as they walked out of the store. "It’s not like it’s a remote controlled airplane or something. It’s a calendar. See, you open the little flap every day, and you get a little chocolate in the shape of something Christmasy. We’ll each take turns doing it and eating the treat. What’s complicated about that?"
The silver haired teen raised an eyebrow. "Sora likes chocolate."
She paused mid-stride and bit her lip. She hadn’t thought of that. "Well. . .I’m sure it will be okay," she declared cheerfully. "He’s not some savage; Sora knows how to behave himself after all."
Riku shook his head. "It won’t last a day," he told her.
Unfortunately, he was right. At least, partially. Receiving a rather cryptic phone call from her brunette friend two day later, she went over to his house where he greeted her glumly, the empty advent calendar in one hand.
"Oh Sora," she groaned, placing a hand to her head.
"I know, I know," he sighed. "I’m sorry! It was just. . . I couldn’t resist with it sitting there, knowing there was all that chocolate waiting to be eaten. . ." He blinked, shaking his head. "Go ahead, yell at me."
Kairi gazed at him for a long moment, then went to the closet and took out his coat. "Put it on and come with me."
Sora took it, even more startled. "You aren’t angry with me?" he asked hopefully, shrugging his coat on and zipping it up.
"Not really. I should have known better than to leave a sugary temptation here alone with you. Now, come with me so we can fix this."
"Fix it how?" he inquired, mystified.
Smiling, the crimson haired girl took his hand, pulling him off toward the town shopping center. "We’re going to get another calendar."
"But Kai-" he began, but she reached up, placing a finger against his lips.
"This time, we’re going to get the calendar with little charms inside," she told him, flashing him her dazzling grin. "I don’t think we’ll have to worry about you eating that one!"
