The Residual Organization Ch7The Contract, Roxas's story
Really? Just when I was about to leave After forcing a smile, I turn to see the person calling me. It's an unfamiliar Goth around my age. His dark hair partially covers his face and expression is difficult to read.

I can hear the mysterious voice and Mr. Hachi's mumbling, but I'm used to it. Whenever I walk by the red-haired man's desk, he smiles at me. I return the gesture rather enthusiastically. Kairi's passing still lingers in my mind. I should be a bit more sad that Kairi's dead, but I can't stop grinning. I admit I was a bit shocked when I saw her headless body the other day, and sure, I felt bad for her, but I decided to be more optimistic about the matter. I mean, she's the same girl who sabotaged my science project and laughed at me as I received an F The same girl who pretended to be gay and stole my first girlfriend The same girl who "accidentally" dropped my laptop Thank God she's gone.
