Face Down

Chapter 9

-Rush of Blood-

Then it hit me like a sack of bricks. "Demyx and Zexion are dating?!" my eyes widened and I felt my heart beating quickly. Axel and I were walking home from school, and apparently I had said that aloud instead of keeping it in my head...

"They're what?!" Axel said, stopping suddenly to look at me.

"Well, I don't know for sure, but I just have a hunch!" I answered, feeling rather eager to find out. Instead of taking our usual route back home, I led Axel and I to Demyx's house where I could ask him about the real situation. I rang the doorbell and watched as Axel sniffed a rose in some flower box sitting on one of Demyx's windowsills. Demyx opened the door, a cookie hanging out of his mouth, wearing boxers with little bananas on them. I looked him up and down and blushed lightly.

"H-hey, Demyx. Sorry to bother you..."

"That's okay! What is it you need?"

"Well..." I began, then Axel interrupted.

"Are you and Zexion DATING?" he asked bluntly with a curious expression on his face. Demyx's eyes widened, and the cookie nearly fell out of his mouth.

"Dating?! Of course not! What gave you that idea?!" he said nervously. I eyed him suspiciously.

"Oh, then you wouldn't mind if I came in, right?" before letting him say anything, I pushed past Demyx and walked inside the house. There I found Zexion laying out on the couch, wearing nothing but boxers with little red hearts on them. Okay, I have to admit, he looks pretty damn sexy! I 'ahem'd' and he turned around to look at me. When he finally realized who he was staring at, he fell off the couch. Demyx hastily ran to his side and helped him up.

"Tsk tsk, Demyx..." I said sarcastically, shaking my head.

"Don't 'tsk tsk' me!" he commanded.

"What will we tell your parents?!" I said fake-dramatically, putting the back of my hand to my head.

"They already know, so HA!"

"And they're completely okay with it?"

"MHM!!" Demyx then huggled Zexion, who just stood there and stared at me and Axel boredly. Axel then started giggling and jumping up and down.

"This is great! We can go on double-dates together!!" he said, clapping his hands.

"Yeah, totally!" Demyx answered happily, taking Axel's hands and jumping up and down with him. Zexion and I stared at them, then looked at eachother.

"What were we thinking when we chose those two?" I asked him.

"I don't know, but what I do know is my whole emo/loner image has gone down the drain," he said in an almost whiney tone. But seriously, what are two emos doing with these hyperactive teens?


These past few weeks have been really great. I have my old friends back, but still able to keep Axel. Those double-dates with Zexion and Demyx were actually not half-bad either...

I slowly opened my eyes, feeling a familiar warmth surrounding me. I looked up and saw Axel, who was still fast asleep. I yawned and stretched, reminiscing on the night before. Mom had said that we've been having too much sex for our own good, but I didn't think so. It's only been four times this week so far!

I snuggled close to Axel and buried my face in his chest. I began to wonder if we'd stay together forever, or if something might try to come and seperate us again...

"You thinking again, Roxy?" I heard Axel ask suddenly, almost scaring me half to death. I looked up at him and he smiled.

"Y-yeah. Just thinking..."

"You think too much," he said, ruffling my hair. I smiled up at him. Just then, my mom opened the bedroom door.

"C'mon, you two sex-addicts. Get up!" she commanded, ripping the blankets from me and Axel. Axel giggled and got up, yawing and stretching as he did so, and I mimicked him. We both got dressed and walked downstairs to eat breakfast. I truly felt that my life was perfect, just the way I wanted it to be. I have Axel, my friends, and...are Sora and Riku making out on the couch?!
