My name is Axel Highwind.
I guess you could say I'm your average, everyday,ordinary teenager. I hate waking up early, I hate going to school and I hate being at home. Nothing too out of the ordinary about that, considering I'm 17. Seventeen year old boys hate everything. And if they say they don't they're lying.
My life for the past 17 years has been the same. Eat, sleep, go to school ,get in trouble and find a way to bail myself out of it. Rinse and Repeat. Of course, I usually get in to trouble because of some hair-brained schemed that would have worked (if not for Demyx) and I usually get out of trouble by lieing through my teeth. Not recommended but effective, if you must know. I'm a great liar, just ask Riku. I taught him to lie too. I can't say I'm proud of that fact but he's damn pro thanks to me.
They say everything changes. I didn't believe them, whoever 'them' is. It's was probably the biggest lie I've ever heard (and I've heard some big ones). Nothing changes. It stayes the same. And if it does change by some miracle of God or some other spiritual being, it was always for the worse. Experience has taught me this well enough to know that if something changes, you'd better duck for cover because the shit is going to hit the fan.
You're probably wondering what in the hell all this has to do with anything. I'll tell you soon enough. I'll make you understand. But first you have to know...you have to know everything. Without the lies. And if there's one thing I hate more then changes, it's telling the truth.
I have two parents, a mom and a stepdad. Cid and Aiden Highwind. Cid used to be a pilot and mom's a nurse. I have a half-sister named Namine and honestly, I love that girl more then anybody in the world. I don't know what would have happened to me without her around. Tell her I said that and I'll kill you in your sleep.
When I'm not at school or at home, I'm working. Now as I've mentioned, I hate school and I've got to say working sucks, but it beats being at home. So I take whatever they give me and try to make the best of it. It's not exactly the most glamorous job or one I'd broadcast around town that I have (my own parents don't even know I have this particular job). I work at a night club called Nocturne. I have a boss that truly hates everyone and everything around him but he's fair guy, which is more then I could have hoped for in that hellhole.
Riku and Demyx are my best friends. My only friends. And while I'm an arrogant, scheming, lieing son of a bitch, even I can't stand to be alone so Riku and Demyx know everything about me. Even the stuff I wish I didn't know. But they like me anyways, so I guess I'm a lucky arrogant, scheming, bastard.
So there you have it. I'm a self-serving, cocky yet still fabulous looking asshole that's hates everything, lies a lot and only has two friends. I told you I was normal. I have one question for you though; How much is my body worth?
My name is Axel Highwind and I'm a callboy.
