Roxas finds himself surrounded by a Dusks, thinking them to be ghosts. Unable to fend them off himself, Roxas decides to retreat. The thieves joining themselves together to create a cage, successfully trapping the teenager. Then, a dark portal opens, with the enemies slowly heading towards it. Suddenly, the Struggle Bat changes into a different weapon, one that will actually allow Roxas to attack and directly damage.
Roxas defeats the thieves and manages to retrieve the stolen photos. However, the mysterious weapon disappears from his own hand. Roxas takes the photos back to his friends, where they put their most cherished one-the quartet at the beach-back into its frame. It turns out that the thieves have been stealing photos of Roxas from everywhere in town. Of course, Roxas could not explain much of the thieves, only that they were non-human.
Soon, the bell rings; a sign that it is getting late. Olette demands that everyone work on their homework assignment the next day, which the boys reluctantly agree with. As they leave the Usual Spot, Roxas complains of the sunlight and faints.
Elsewhere, a new voice comments that it is almost time. The man claims that the white creatures from before work for a group called Organization XIII. The man comments on the Organization's desperate actions, but says he will not let them win. This man, DiZ, then spots an Axel on the computer monitor, and promptly orders his "apprentice" to keep an eye on Roxas.
Meanwhile, Axel stands on a rooftop, surrounded by several Dusks and a different type of Nobody. Axel is annoyed that they are only bringing pictures of Roxas. He then burns the image of Roxas on a school bus, wondering where he is hiding.
The unknown figure from before approaches an unconscious Roxas, saying only one word: "Sora". This triggers another dream, showing more scenes of the mysterious boy: an encounter with a robed man, and gaining the ability to use the Keyblade. Roxas wakes up, back in his own bedroom. He looks into his hand and wonders if the strange weapon he held yesterday was a Keyblade.
