Mirrored Memory (PG-13 / Slightly backdated to beginning of week)

Characters: Riku, Namine, and later Xion
Content: Namine tries to figure out what's going on with Riku.
Location: Hallway likely leading to Library
Time of Day: Morning
Warnings: Mild language. Also threats, violence and creeper.

Riku flipped his hair as he walked down the hall to the library. It wouldn't be long before Sora was yelling at him to do something, so if he could get a jump start on the day, he figured the yelling would be kept to a minimum.

Still, there was one thing on his mind. Many of the people here on Deep 13 were acting strangely. The question, however, was why? Strange things DID happen from time to time, but this was disconcerting. Riku wouldn't put it past Sora to experiment on the others (Riku had inadvertently once been a test subject himself) but the selection seemed odd. And if Sora was choosing test subjects, why not subject him? Not that Riku minded not being chosen, but it did seem logically odd. Whatever it was, it probably wasn't airborne or else both he and Sora would have been infected.

There had to be a pattern, but the question was where?

In Xion's case appearances were deceiving. She was stronger than she looked. That strength wasn't meant to hurt other people, though, and she wouldn't hit him again unless he attacked her or someone she cared about. It was starting to dawn on her, though, that she couldn't trust him to know that. Far from the confidence he'd shown earlier, now he was on the defensive, and scared.

Now was her chance to drive him off, possibly for good. If, at some point in her future, she could convince Roxas that she was so far gone he had to kill or be killed, she could probably do this.

That didn't mean she had to like it.

Slowly she shifted stances so she could walk, taking the moment to try to mentally prepare for what she had to do. Then, letting all the anger (this had to be anger) that she was feeling (at him, at this whole messed up situation) show on her face, she began to stalk towards him. "If you don't know then I'm not telling you. Back off now and I may not tell Sora what you were doing."

Having seen the way the mirrored Sora treated this Riku, she knew it was kind of a low blow of a threat, but if it worked, then it might be worth it. She just hoped the real Riku would forgive her.

[OOC: Roger that, and she will not pursue if/when he does.]

Well, Xion had managed to turn the tables on Riku and get the upper hand. The problem was, the upper hand wasn't something she was used to having. More often than not, she'd been the one left guessing while others planned circles around her. So she was at something of a loss as to how to proceed, but she couldn't let that show. Time to think quickly, though she didn't have much to go on...

It doesn't matter what cards you're dealt, just how you play them.

Okay, so what did she know? First, Riku obviously could tell her connection to Sora--not this Sora here, but a Sora, and that was enough. Second, even then he still didn't fully recognize her--an advantage she might need. Third, while she wasn't used to having the upper hand, she did have experience not only dealing with people who did, but imitating them as well, thanks to the occasional contest among best friends.

She could do something with that.

Slowly, she let her expression shift from anger to her best impression of one of Xigbar's "I know something you don't" smirks. "Wouldn't you like to know."

Really, if she were back on the clock tower with her friends, it would have won her the extra ice cream that day.

Even mirrored, Xion probably wouldn't be anyone's flunky. More like a partner in crime with the mirrored Sora. This Xion was about as far from mirrored as could be, and was definitely not going to play the part of the puppet anymore.

This Riku probably wouldn't be any happier knowing the answers he was looking for. Once it was clear he was going to run, Xion halted her advance, and when he was gone, she let her facade fade, slumping into a more relaxed stance while leaning against the wall.

Namine faded into view a little further down the hall, still looking a little shaky and wary as she approached. Xion offered what she hoped was a reassuring smile. "It's me. You okay?"

That got a nod, but Namine still seemed hesitant. Sighing, Xion moved away from the wall and, when the other girl didn't back away, gave her an awkward hug. It seemed like the right thing to do. After a brief moment, Namine relaxed slightly and, though she didn't hug bag, leaned on Xion until she stopped shaking.
