A/N: Muahahahaha. Zexion/Roxas is my platonic OTP; I totally needed an excuse to write it. XD I don't believe I've seen fics for this pairing before, either. Which means I shall start a REVOLUTION! ...No, not really.
As always, I do not own Kingdom Hearts or any of its characters. Dammit.
No one could ever figure Zexion out, and he liked it that way. He was like one of those puzzles he worked on continuously, but he was one that was not meant to be solved. He did in fact love spending his time with the "older" Nobodies, but he treasured his moments with Roxas.
Believe it or not, the two had much to talk about. They exchanged novels (Roxas was at quite a high reading level for his age), philosophize, or gossip about Organization members even. Moreover, the two had an undying love for ice cream. Zexion loved experimenting with them, creating his own flavours; however, his cooking skills were not to be desired. Roxas simply tried what was out there, no matter how putrid it sounded. However, neither knew of the other's ice cream fetish; they were both rather ashamed of it.
One day, Zexion was digging through the Organization's rather enormous freezer, searching for some ice cream. He found a new box and opened it. He removed the wrapper from the Popsicle to find it a peculiar light blue hue.
"What are you doing?" Zexion blushed; he didn't like the idea of anyone finding about his er... obsession. He turned around defensively to find Roxas standing there.
Roxas caught Zexion with a light blue Popsicle stuck in his mouth. Zexion found this extremely embarrassing. Roxas almost chuckled. "I didn't know you liked ice cream too."
Zexion dropped his guard and reached into the freezer once more for a Popsicle identical to his own. He took the ice cream out of his mouth long enough to say, "Try it."
The younger Nobody took the Popsicle from his hand. "What flavour is it? It's a weird colour."
"Sea-salt. It's... intriguing almost. I've always wondered what these tasted like; back when I was Ienzo, Ansem the Wise used to eat them all the time, and I've wondered what they tasted like ever since."
Roxas grew bored with Zexion's speech and licked it. "Salty... but sweet. Is that possible? You're a scientist, you should know."
"I suppose it is."
"Not very good, though."
"It awakens a nostalgic feeling within me; I suppose that's what makes me enjoy it more."
Roxas shrugged and continued to savor both the moment and his snack.
"Hey, guys," Olette asked, looking into her munny pouch. "What flavour do you think we should get?"
Her question was followed by three sets of 'uuuuuuuums' from her friends.
"Sea-salt," came Roxas' blunt reply.
Hayner stuck his tongue out. "That sounds gross. Why sea-salt?"
Roxas shrugged. "It feels familiar. Almost like home."
Reviews are like cookies for me. And in return for my cookie, I shall give you a cookie. :)
