Namine stared in shock at the blonde boy. How could he not remember them? Zexion, Vexen's assistant, cleared his throat and everyone turned to him.
"That's what I was trying to tell all of you. Roxas has woken up, but due to the trauma he has suffered a mental regression and memory loss. He remembers you, Demyx since he knew you from a young age, but he doesn't recognize you since you're older then he remembers." Zexion explained, while Vexen went to get medication for the headache he was sure Roxas had.
"Is that right?" Demyx asked sadly. He turned to the blonde boy. "Do you know who I am Roxy? It's me, Demyx."
Roxas's face scrunched up in thought. Namine thought he looked really cute like that, and she heard Kairi softly giggling beside her.
"Demy? You got bigger." Roxas said slowly in wonder. Demyx smiled as tears fell from his eyes.
"Yeah, but I'm still Demy, Roxy." Demyx said as he took Roxas's hands in his own. "I'm so happy you're okay."
Roxas's eyes widened as he looked at Demyx. Why was his big brother crying? "It's okay, Demy. Don't cry." Roxas said as he hugged Demyx.
"Will he ever gain back his memory?" Axel asked Zexion and Vexen. The doctors exchanged glances.
"Well, it is too early to tell for sure. He will definitely have headaches, which I shall give you medication for. After we run a few more tests on him to make sure his vitals and senses are stable then he can go home." Vexen explained as he wrote down a report. Zexion nodded.
"Yes, it will be best for him if he spends time with people he's used to. It may take him a while to get used to you three." Zexion glanced over at Kairi, Namine, and Axel.
"What would his… um… state of mind be? How old his he mentally?" Kairi asked. Zexion thought about it for a bit.
"Hm… Well… Roxas." Zexion looked toward the blonde boy on the bed. The boy looked at him with innocent and wide blue eyes. "How old are you, Roxas?"
"7!" Roxas proclaimed proudly. Demyx's eyes widened.
"Oh, then that means in his eyes I'm supposed to be nine." Demyx grinned. Axel crossed his arms and sighed. Namine's mind wondered. That's a year before he met her.
"Yeah, well let's hope he doesn't ask for another motorcycle." Axel said as he stared at his boyfriend and his boyfriend's brother interact.
"I'll keep him here for a week to ensure nothing else life threatening is wrong with him." Vexen said as he marked things down on a clipboard.
The week had passed by slowly for Demyx and Axel. They took Roxas home and were happy to know that besides the memory loss, there was nothing severely wrong with Roxas. When they got home however, Axel immediately told Roxas he better be damn happy with a bicycle.
Roxas was confused, and asked Axel what he meant, but Axel just waved off his confusion and ruffled the blonde's spikes.
"Alright, so Roxas. You know who he is right?" Demyx asked pointing to Axel. Axel grinned at him. Roxas nodded. "What's his name?"
"Lea." Roxas answered grinning. Axel gave Demyx a confused look.
"How does he know my brother's name?" Axel asked him. Demyx rolled his eyes.
"No, Roxy. Try again." Demyx sighed. Roxas pretended to think.
"Leah." Roxas tried again, and then chuckled. Axel growled.
"That's a girl's name! Dem, he's doing it on purpose." Axel said as he banged his head on the dining table. Demyx pulled out a sea salt ice cream. Roxas's favorite treat even when he was young.
"Okay, Roxas if you can guess his name right this round you can have this ice cream." Roxas's eyes widened, before he grinned.
"Axel!" He chirped happily. Demyx grinned at him.
"Yes! Great job!" Demyx congratulated as he handed to treat to his brother. Roxas grinned and nibbled happily on the ice cream. Axel looked up from the table and propped his head on his hand.
"Ah, some bribery goes a long way." Axel said chuckling. Demyx elbowed him lightly.
"Which we won't be teaching him. Here." Demyx said as he gave an ice cream to his boyfriend and ate his own.
"Demy." Roxas said shyly. Demyx looked at his baby brother.
"Yeah?" Demyx asked. Roxas hid his face slightly.
"Where are mommy and daddy? Why aren't they here?" Roxas asked softly. It was weird that they weren't there when Roxas woke up in the hospital. Demyx and Axel exchanged worried looks.
"Well, they um… they wanted to come Roxy, but Dad had a business trip he couldn't fall back on and Mom had her runway that needed her so she couldn't leave. But they wanted to be here." Demyx said biting his lip. Axel looked at Demyx with narrowed eyes, but said nothing.
"Oh, okay…" Roxas sighed. He tried to finish his ice cream, but it turned to ash in his mouth. Why hadn't his parents called at least? If they wanted to be there that badly, shouldn't they have called? Maybe they weren't worried about him…
"I don't want my ice cream anymore. I'm tired. Uh… I'm going to bed." Roxas said sadly. He handed his ice cream to Demyx and went upstairs. Demyx sighed.
Axel glared at Demyx once Roxas was out of eyesight. Demyx scowled at him.
"What, Axel?" Demyx sighed as he ran his hands through his hair. Axel lowered his voice.
"Why would you lie to him like that?" Axel growled. Demyx scowled angrily at him.
"He's already been through so much. Why make his life even more miserable by telling him the truth?" Demyx said harshly. Axel scoffed.
"And pre tell what the hell you're going to do, Dem, when Roxas is up crying at night waiting for his parents to show up? What are you going to tell him the next morning when his parents don't show up? 'Oh, I'm sorry, Roxy but I forgot to mention that our parents are never coming.'" Axel mimicked in Demyx's tone. Demyx growled at him.
"I'm just trying to protect him, Axel." Demyx said fiercely. Axel crossed his arms and his eyes softened.
"Protecting him and lying to him, Dem, are two completely different things. He'll resent you for lying to him. He will think everything you tell him is a lie. By lying to him with this, you're making him wait for something… that's never coming." Axel sighed. Demyx sighed shakily.
"I know. I'll tell him now. At least he won't hate me to much." Demyx said shamefully looking at the ground. Axel smiled softly at him, took him in his arms, and kissed his forehead.
"He won't hate you, Dem. He loves you more than anything. You know that." Axel said, and Demyx wrapped his arms around the red head's neck and kissed him before making his way up the stairs.
"Roxy, are you awake?" Demyx poked his head in Roxas's bedroom. Roxas lifted his head.
"Yeah." Roxas said as he turned to face his big brother. Demyx sat down on the bed next to Roxas.
"Rox, I'm sorry. I wasn't telling the truth when I told you about Mom and Dad." Demyx said sighing. Roxas's eyes widened.
"You lied to me? Why?" Roxas asked. His shock and hurt expression sent a wave of shame and embarrassment through Demyx.
"Because… Because I thought that it would be better if you didn't know what happened to our parents. I didn't want to hurt you." Demyx said. Roxas tilted his head to the side slightly.
"You wouldn't hurt me, Demy. Even if you wanted to you couldn't." Roxas said with a determined look on his face.
"And why is that?" Demyx asked shocked. Roxas puffed out his chest.
"Because you love me and I love you." Roxas answered as if it was obvious. Demyx laughed.
"Well, you got me there!" Demyx grinned as he hugged Roxas and Roxas clung to Demyx tighter.
"So, what did happen to Mom and Dad?" Roxas asked looking up at Demyx with pleading blue eyes. Demyx sighed.
"They… they died, Roxy. They got into a car accident with a drunk motorcyclist." Demyx replied softly as he ran his hand through his brother's golden spikes. Roxas leaned into his touch absorbing the information.
"So, they aren't coming back?" Roxas mumbled as he buried his face into Demyx's shirt to stop his tears. Demyx pulled him in closer, and hugged him tightly to his chest, and slowly rubbing circles on his back.
"No, Roxy… They aren't…" Demyx said. They stayed like that for the entire night until Roxas fell asleep in Demyx's arms. Demyx sighed at having to relive the emotional roller coaster of that day, but he knew in his heart that they would be okay.
KH: Guys, I have come back! I felt in a writing mood, and I wanted to write some fics, but I didn't know any good ones to start so I'm finishing the ones I previously started! I have to admit some of them were great ideas. Sad that my inspiration just zapped away from me. But I'll work on this story first and continue on down the line until I find my next idea that interests me most! Enjoy!
