A/N- Written for mypetme, who requested an Axel/Roxas drabble.


This shouldn't be hurting me, right?

After all, he didn't have a heart, so even if this was Roxas- smiling, lovely Roxas- he could still raise the chakram against him.

But it did hurt- it hurt so much that Axel wanted to scream and tear out that empty space where that heart that was hurting him so couldn't be. The flames danced and roared and licked at Roxas's heels, and he looked so beautiful wreathed in them.

He hesitated.

Roxas leapt, Oathkeeper and Oblivion singing through the air, descending toward him.

And Axel wondered, will this take away my pain?
