[Chapter 2: The Trespasser]
[ba-dump] [ba-dump] [ba-dump]
(Could these guys be ghosts?!)
There's too many of them.
(Just as I thought, there's no resistance...!!)
Guh-- What are Hayner and the others doing!
... (I should run.)
Let g... AH.
Let me out, you...
What is that...?!
(We're turning around?!)
HEY WAIT A MINUTE!
Wh... What is...~?!
Haa... Haa... Haa... Haa... (panting)
Tadaa~ It's been restored!
It's good that we were able to return it just the way it was.
After all, it's a 'photo' of our precious memory.
Ah... I can say it.
The word is back too!
But it sure was a strange incident, huh.
The only things stolen from anyone in town were photographs.
What a weird thief.
I've got it!
The culprit was a stalker after Roxas!!
All the photos are of Roxas.
No one's been going through your trash or anything, right?
You should be sure to close your curtains all the way.
There could be a wiretap under your TV or something.
You guys are HORRIBLE!!!
Even if this was a joke or something, what kind of guy was the culprit?
Eh? You all saw, didn't you?
It took the camera and ran off!
It wasn't human, right?!
And none of you came, and I...
It seemed like they were trying to take me off to some weird place, and...
You're not scaring me.
No, I'm not trying to scare you, but...
If we're going to talk about scary stories, then--
(Already they couldn't care less about the culprit...)
It's that time already, huh...
The last two days have been really surprising, haven't they.
So there's only one week left until summer vacation's over.
That means tomorrow we're totally going to do it!
What's with that?!
Don't be so laid-back!
You're not blameless, Hayner!!
That's the "beauty of the blank page!"
Ahaha, what's that supposed to mean?
Okay, we'll all meet again tomorrow!
You got it!
[It won't be long now...]
(Won't... be long...? What won't...?)
It seems that they are also becoming desperate.
But I will not allow them to snatch it away from us so easily.
That's the reason why we scattered pictures of Roxas throughout the town.
It's like they can't make the distinction between that and the real thing...
Because to the underlings, both appear to be the same "Roxas."
Damn Organization XIII.
He thinks that he can behave however he likes in this realm.
This redheaded man.
Don't take your eyes off Roxas for a moment.
Those clothes suit you.
I'm not wearing this because I want to.
Huhuhu... That's true...
At any rate.
The awakening won't be long now... it seems.
Really, you guys...
What am I supposed to do with these pictures you brought me?
Where could he be? The real thing.
[Organization XIII Number 8: Axel]
This world has been connected.
Tied to the darkness...
The door has opened.
Another dream of that guy...
You understand nothing.
[We have come to bring you back, our master.]
They'll come at you out of nowhere.
As long as you continue to use the keyblade.
When did I get back...?
Note that DiZ's line, "But I will not allow them to snatch it away from us so easily," refers to Roxas. We debated for a while about whether DiZ should call him "he" or "it" and decided on "it," due to some things he says later on that reeeeally make it sound like he thinks of Roxas as a thing more than a person.
