We cut to a desert somewhere. As we pulled in, we see a figure riding on a camel on his way somewhere. He is an old man in a blue wizard costume and a white beard, holding some sort of stick. His name is Merlin, the world's most powerful wizard. As he rides, he begins to sing.
Merlin: (singing) Oh I come from a land
From a faraway place
Where the caravan camels roam
Where it's flat and immense
And the heat is intense
It's barbaric, but hey--it's home!
When the wind's at your back
And the sun's from the west
And the sand in the glass is right
Come on down,
Stop on by
Hop a Gummi ship and fly
To another Radiant night!
Merlin and his camel arrive at their destination: the town of Radiant Garden. Merlin continues singing as they passed by people and stuff.
Merlin: (singing) Radiant nights
Like Radiant days
More often than not
Are hotter than hot
In a lot of good ways
'Neath Radiant moons
A fool off his guard
Could fall and fall hard
Out there on the dunes.
Merlin's camel is soon out of breath and collapses. Merlin gets off and dusts himself off any sand on it. He looks at someone (namely us) and smiles.
Merlin: Ah, hello and good evening, my young friends. Come closer.
The camera went too close and slams Merlin in the face.
Merlin: (annoyed) Not that close!
Camera pulls out.
Merlin: Very good. Ahem. Welcome to Radiant Garden. City of mystery, enchantment, and the best stuff this side of Atlantica!
Merlin waves his wand and a selling stand with a bunch of stuff to sell. The wizard then stood behind it.
Merlin: Come look here. Take a look at this.
Merlin takes out a product.
Merlin: This is a new product. Combination hookah and coffee maker--also makes Julienne fries.
Merlin demonstrates to the viewer. Merlin smiles as he taps the machine on the side of the stand.
Merlin: It will not break, it...
He taps the product too hard and it broke in his hands.
Merlin: It broke.
Merlin throws the broken thing away and takes out some Tupperware.
Merlin: Ah, my, my. I have never seen one of these intact before. This is the famous Halloween Town Tupperware! Listen!
Merlin opens the Tupperware and makes a raspberry.
Merlin: Still good.
The camera moves to leave. Merlin sees this and runs to stop the camera.
Merlin: Wait, wait! Do not leave yet.
The camera stops as the wizard grins.
Merlin: I see now that it's something rare you wanted. I think you may be interested in...this.
Merlin takes out a card.
Merlin: Before you say anything, you got to remember that it isn't what's on the outside that counts, but what's on the inside.
The camera tries to leave again but Merlin stops it once more.
Merlin: This isn't any original card! This one card has once changed the life of a very important young man. The man who, liked this card, is more than what he seemed. (Whispers) The Heart in the Rough.
The camera stops, whoever it is interested. We can tell as Merlin is smiling.
Merlin: Ah, want to hear the tale, correct?
Merlin takes out some sand from nearby.
Merlin: It all begins on a dark knight.
Merlin throws the sand into the sky which forms stars. He narrated after.
Merlin: (V.O.) Where a dark man waits, with a dark purpose.
Camera goes down as we see the dark man waiting on a horse as the story begins. He is a silver-haired man with orange eyes, a cruel look, and a black cloak. His name is Xemnas. With him is another person with red spiky hair wearing the same black cloak he's wearing with blue eyes. He is known as Axel.
They waited as another figure on a horse appeared and rode up to them. The rider of that horse got off and glares at Xemnas. He is a British looking man with a fine haircut, wearing a hunting uniform, and carrying a two-barrel gun. He is known as Clayton.
Xemnas: (low) You are late.
Clayton: Forgive me for my tardiness, Xemnas.
Xemnas: Do you have it?
Clayton: I have to shoot down a few lives, but I got it.
Clayton pulls out a half of a medallion (like the one in the Pirates in the Carribean film). Xemnas reaches for it but the hunter pull it back and smirk. Clayton holds out a hand.
Clayton: Remember out deal. Treasure first.
But before Clayton could blinks, Axel teleports out and in front of Clayton. He grabs the medallion. He then teleports back next to Xemnas and gives the medallion half to him.
Xemnas: Calm down, Clayton. You'd get what's coming to you.
Axel: (chuckling) What he said.
Xemnas pulls out another medallion half. He connects it with the first one to form a whole medallion. Suddenly the medallion flew out of Xemnas's hands, flies around, and flies out into the desert.
Xemnas: Quickly! We must not lose it!
Axel got on the horse with Xemnas and the trio then goes in the pursuit of the flying medallion. The medallion continues to fly on fast until it stops by a big dune. It then became halves again and digged right into the sand itself. It soon makes two glowing lights in the sand. Suddenly dune begins to rise up and, as the horses stops upon arrival, , the dune transforms into a giant head that looks like a Behemoth. (Note: Hey, I have to use something) The Behemoth opens its mouth.
Xemnas: (getting off his horse) Yes! After all these years. Kingdom Hearts!
Axel: I know how interested you want in it.
Clayton: I don't believe it.
Xemnas: Now remember, Clayton, get me the card. You can have the treasure for all I care, but the card is mine.
Clayton: (puzzled) Now what would you want with a card?
Xemnas: Never mind the deals. Just go it.
Clayton chuckles as he goes to Kingdom Hearts's entrance.
Axel: That's right, get him the card, Clayton. We'd be here if you need us. (Mumbling to Xemnas) Where did we get this idiot?
Xemnas hushes him and continues to look on. Clayton has reach the entrance and is about to enter. But before he could get a step in, the entrance begins to roared, pushing him back. Clayton looks and gasps upon seeing the Kingdom Hearts entrance speaking
Kingdom Hearts Guardian: Who disturb my slumber?
Clayton: (nervously) Oh. Just me. Clayton. A humble hunter.
Kingdom Hearts Guardian: Know this. Only one can enter here. One whose worth lies far within. The Heart in the Rough!
(The last words echoed everywhere. Clayton gave a nervous look to Xemnas, who just frowns.
Xemnas: Well? Move it!
Clayton gulps a bit and then enters the entrance. He reaches the steps that lead down further. Clayton closes his eyes, put one foot on one step, and waits. When nothing happens, Clayton sighs in relief and is about to move on again. But then Kingdom Hearts Guardian roars again. Clayton cries in fear and tries to run away. But the entrance closes with him still inside. The dune begins to fall back to normal sending sand everywhere knocking Xemnas and Axel down. The two medallion halves fell out.
Kingdom Guards Guardian: Seek thee out, the Heart in the Rough. (Echoes)
Soon things are back to normal, sort of. Axel got up and shakes himself angrily.
Axel: I do not believe it! I just don't! We are never going to get our hands on that stupid card! Forget it! I feel like molting here!
Axel grabs the medallion halves and gives them back to Xemnas who accept them calmly.
Xemnas: Patience, Axel. Clayton was obviously not the worthy one the Guardian expected.
Axel: (sarcastic) Oh, geez. That's a surprise. Unbelievable. I think I'm going to die from that surprise. What are we going to do? We got a big problem, a big...
Axel quiets as Xemnas looks on in thought.
Xemnas: Of course. Only one person can enter Kingdom Hearts. I must find this one, this Heart in the Rough.
