"Who's that?" Saïx glared at the door and the noise whoever it was was making.
"Larxene." He sighed deeply, let go of his hand, and stood up.
"Shouldn't they have told you she was on her way up here?" He questioned narrowing his eyes even further upon the door and the way she kept beating on it.
"She probably beat Axel over the unconscious over the head, kicked Xaldin where it would hurt the most, and Vexen wouldn't have seen her from his room." He sighed and headed for the door before she beat it down.
"If that's how she behaves I don't see how you two could possibly be related." He grunted disgustedly and narrowed his eyes even further upon the door.
Luxord sighed and shook his head at that then opened the door. "You are the most uncouth person I know." He glared at her. "Even Axel has more manners than you."
"Stuff it Luxord." She bit back and shoved past him into the living room.
"Your lady-like behavior astounds me." He snorted sarcastically then shut the door.
"Why are you here?!" She spun on him and narrowed her eyes deeply upon him.
"You mean besides my sister lying to me all these years and having kids," he narrowed his eyes deeply upon her. "trying to have my kids, Marluxia's kid."
Her eyes widened at that. "You know?" She gasped. "Roxas? Aurora?"
"Yes Roxas but who is this Aurora now?" He demanded. "Who is her father? The way you've been running around popping out kids I highly doubt I'll be surprised as to who the father of that one is."
"I'm not a whore!" She pointed a sharp finger in his face. "I only slept with my Lexy. I would never with that bitch Marluxia!"
"Nor would he with you." He grabbed the finger pointing at him. "Just how many kids do you have?" He demanded with a tight squeeze to her hand.
She tried to jerk her hand free and only succeeded in having him squeeze it tighter. "Luxord look," she started calmly. "what I've done I did for a reason."
"To take everything I have." He glared at her. "Do you really think I would leave you with nothing?" He let go of her hand.
"No." She sighed and looked down at her feet. "I did what I did to secure my own future." She looked up at him. "Qing is only using you to attain the same thing Stewart is." She looked up at him. "And once the dust settles from the war that will come between those two you'll be the only one left standing. They fear you even more so than each other. So they're both using you to gain control… well I mean Qing is I don't know for sure if Stewart is or what he knows for sure."
He eyed her suspiciously. "Larxene what do you know?"
She stared at him for a moment debating on what she should tell him and how much. "Luxord," she started with a sigh. "Qing is going to support you in your war with England to bring down Stewart but he's not going to do it to free the world of Stewart's control." She shook her head. "He plans on seating himself as the one true ruler."
"Not all the other countries will fall just because England does." He pointed out.
"They will." She nodded. "He's already taking steps to make sure they do." She shrugged. "The Americas, Russia, and half of Africa is already heavily in debt to him. He's promised money to Australia, the Middle East, and several other smaller countries."
"He's going to control them through debt." Luxord nodded.
"Exactly." She nodded back. "Because they owe so much to him they'll make deals with him to try and clear the debt without paying it back."
Luxord sighed deeply and shook his head.
"Aren't you in debt to him?"
"No." He shook his head. "Any money I borrowed I paid back already."
She stared up at him. "What are you going to do?"
"I don't know." He stared at her. "I'll have to spend some time thinking about it and make sure I have my own things in order before I make any decisions."
She grabbed his hand and held it tightly between her own two hands. "Luxord please don't leave me here." She stared up at him eyes wide and pleading.
"What else is there?" He questioned as he stared hard at her.
"I don't know." She shook her head. "I just know I don't want to stay here and I do not want to marry Shen. I don't feel right about it. Plus," she shifted nervously in front of him. "I want all my kids back."
Saïx snorted at that drawing both Luxord and Larxene's attention his way.
"Who's that?" Larxene stared at the male on the couch.
"That's Saïx," Luxord nodded at him. "Saïx, Larxene." He waved his hand at his sister.
Saïx stared at her and a sudden dislike for the woman welled up deep within him. Something about her eyes didn't sit well with him and his senses were telling him that she was nothing but a class A liar. "Ah the woman who had her own brother's kid."
Her eyes widened at that. "Who told you?!"
He smirked wickedly at her. "No one told me it was just a guess." He snorted. "And you just gave yourself away. So which one of your kids is really Luxord's? So far we know Roxas belongs to Marluxia and Demyx and Naminé belong to Lexaeus. Now knowing that all of those are true the question is; how many kids do you have that you have yet told anyone about? And which one of them is related to you and Luxord," he arched a condescending brow at her. "twice?"
"Larxene?" Luxord drew her attention his way by the edge in his voice. "You didn't." He growled deadly.
Larxene moved to the chair and sat down in it solemnly. "I did." She whispered.
"When? How?" He ground his teeth sharply against the nausea welling up within his gut.
"I…" she started and looked away in an attempt to avoid the hurt and rage within his eyes. "drugged you when you came home for Ansem's birthday that one year. I stole what I would need from Vexen's lab and during dinner…" She trailed off at that letting him fill out the rest within his own mind.
Luxord moved to the couch and fell down into it next to Saïx. He was sick beyond all reason; he had sex with his sister. True it wasn't by choice and he certainly didn't remember it but if there was a child from that union there was no denying it. "How could you?" He whispered as he stared wide eyed at her.
"I did it to ensure my own future." She nodded at him. "Do whatever you have to do to ensure your own future. Isn't that what you always told me?"
"I didn't mean for you to do what you did!" He growled. "I meant for you to save, make connections, marry, have kids with your husband." He bit out the last part. "How could you?" He questioned disgustedly.
"Lots of alcohol." She laughed bitterly.
"I'm not laughing." He narrowed his eyes deeply upon her.
Saïx placed his hand on Luxord's thigh and gave it a comforting squeeze. "Alright so you had your brother's kid and it didn't get you what you wanted. You had Marluxia's kid and got nothing. You had Lexaeus' kids and still have nothing." He shook his head at her. "So many kids without a mother, only one has his father, and the rest believe other people are their parents. Quite the legacy to leave behind."
"Who the fuck are you to judge me?" She glared at him. "You don't know anything about my situation."
His ambers narrowed deeply upon her. "I don't need to know you to know what you are." He countered. "I've seen the proof of who you are first hand. So who's next; you want to have my kid? What about Xaldin he seems to be the most logical next in line."
"Luxord," she moved her glare to her brother. "who the hell is this man. Why is he even here? Does he work for you or something?"
"He is the last person you need to be worrying about." Luxord growled. "I can not believe you!" He jabbed his fingers through his hair. "What were you thinking?!"
"About my future." She answered with a glare at him.
"Oh so your future is so much more important than anyone else's." Saïx glowered at her. "Of course the most important thing is you. Who cares about anyone else as long you're secure in your future." It was decided he did not like this sister and was going to do his level best to keep her out of their lives as much as possible.
Actually he was a little concerned that the bitch was going to pull the same trick on him and try to have his kid. He was going to keep a damn close eye on the crazy bitch. All it would take is a moment of inattention and the next thing he knew he would be the next father to the bitch's latest kid.
Xaldin sighed deeply as he pushed the door open to Vexen's room. He was hoping the physician wasn't in his room but of course luck wasn't on his side it never was. Sure enough there sat Vexen at his desk going over formulas for medications.
"I didn't hear you knock nor did I invite you in." Vexen growled without looking up. "Go away Axel."
"I'm not Axel."
Vexen turned around and stared at him. "Xaldin? What do you want?"
He wanted to forget this whole thing and walk away but Marluxia's insistence, threat of death, and large paycheck ensured he followed through with the plan. He was going to hate himself for this later when Vexen laid his broken heart on the floor before him.
He moved to sit on the couch and stared at the doctor sitting at the desk. "I want to talk to you about what you said the other day."
Vexen drew his brows deeply. "What are you talking about?"
Xaldin sighed deeply. "Your…" He trailed off and sighed again getting his composure together before finishing. "Virginity." He practically choked on the word.
"Is none of your business." Vexen hissed as he glared at him. "You have made it abundantly clear where we stand so my life is no concern of yours."
"I'm trying to understand." He nodded at him. "You have devoted yourself to me and I want to know why you never let go. What is it you hang onto that has you saving yourself for me?"
Vexen sighed deeply at that and looked away. "For a long time I asked myself the same questions and I still don't have a clear answer." He looked back at him. "All I can say with any certainty is that you are the only one I ever wanted to be with." He shook his head and turned back to the papers on his desk. "However you have made it very clear to me that you and I will never be so I'm going to move on with my life. No point in holding on to a dream that will never be real. So best of luck to you in your lonely loveless future." He pointed towards the door. "Goodbye."
"You intend to give up so easily?" He stared at his back with an arched brow.
"How long do you think I should hang on to a dream?" He turned and rose his brows at him. "It's time to move on and leave you as a memory of the past." He nodded.
"Memory of the past?" He smirked at him. "How can you have memories of something that never happened?"
"You're right." He narrowed his eyes. "Nothing happened, nothing to remember, so nothing to feel guilty when I go out with Terra tomorrow."
"Terra?" He eyed him suspiciously. "I find that very hard to believe."
"Believe what you will." He shrugged dismissively and turned back to his desk. "All that matters in the end is you become nobody to me. Now if there's nothing else please leave I have a lot of work to do."
He just couldn't believe it. Was Vexen really over him and really moving on? Well it was what he wanted yet for some reason all this bothered him deep within his gut. He kind of felt like Vexen's virginity belonged to him and he didn't want to let anyone else have it. Yet on the other hand he didn't want Vexen and he sure as hell didn't want his virginity.
