I Swear on the Stars Ch.2Chapter Two“Axel...?” I replied slowly, trying to buy myself enough time to run to my boat. “I’ve never seen you around Destiny Islands before. What are you doing here?”“I’m here on somewhat of a mission, as it were,” he smirked, carefully rubbing his surely throbbing jaw.

In my attempts to find out, I agreed to return to Destiny Island each day with Kairi. I only went for a little while, but each time I could feel Kairi’s mystery boy drawing closer.
