Alright guys, here we go. Oh, and if you wouldn't mind in your reviews, could you tell me your top three favorite characters? That would be splendid!
"Demyx…" Axel's voice was hoarse. Little beads of sweat were forming on his shirtless torso, gleaming in the dim light of the blonde's small room. It was unusually warm in the small space, almost uncomfortably warm, but it was because Axel was there. Demyx looked up at the red head above him, his eyes glowing in the dim light. The muscles in Axel's arms were strong on either side of him, shaking ever so slightly from holding his body weight up.
"Let me show you a couple of things," Axel grunted, bringing his lips down and seductively placing them on Demyx's. They were hot, burning Demyx's lips, but in an ever so pleasureful way—"
"Demyx, wake up! It's time for our mission." Marluxia was standing above him at his bedside. Demyx shot up from his dream, gasping when he noticed the pink haired man in his room. To his horror, there was a lump under his blankets where his legs came together, and Marluxia obviously noticed. He was smirking, aroused at the sight.
"Guh- uh… I'll be out in a sec." Demyx groaned, trying to cover up his muscle. Marluxia laughed, and then exited the room. After he was gone, Demy just sat for a moment, wondering.
'Axel said in a month I wouldn't have a sexual preference anymore. Has it been that long? Or longer…?' He had lost all sense of time. The days were blending together and blurring, just like his memories.
Demyx went out to the grey room where he found Marluxia, Larxene, and Saix waiting.
"Hello, Demyx. You will be joining Larxene and Marluxia today on your mission. Your water skills are needed," said Saix. Surprisingly, Demyx felt a tinge of proudness. He liked being needed. It made him feel like he still had a sense of worth.
"You ready?" asked Marluxia. Demyx nodded, following he and Larxene into the portal.
"Hey Zexion," Axel said, joining the blue haired man on the couch.
"How's it goin'?"
"Fine. Do you not have a mission today?" Zexion asked, his eyes not leaving the text of his book.
"Nope. I have some time off before I get sent on a big one," Axel said, running a slender hand through his hair. Zexion raised an eyebrow, looking up at the red head.
"You mean Castle Oblivion?"
"Yep. Me, Marluxia and Larxene are being assigned there. The upper floors."
Zexion's eye twitched slightly, but kept his composure. "You're not planning on doing something reckless, are you?
Axel narrowed his eyes. "Why would you say that?"
"Recently I overheard Larxene and Marluxia whispering about something. I couldn't hear exactly what they were saying, but when they realized I was present in the room they went silent. It was sketchy."
"They were probably just talking about what they were going to do in bed that night or something," Axel laughed, slapping Zexion on the back playfully. "You think too far into things."
Zexion looked back to his book, shrugging his shoulders without a word. Axel excused himself from the room, and once he was sure he was alone, he let out a long sigh of relief.
"Good work, Demyx." Marluxia complemented, as he Demyx and Larxene stood in the desert of Agrabah. Demyx had just defeated several fire heartless much quicker than Larxene and Marluxia could have, since he had water powers.
"Thanks," Demyx breathed, tired from all the combat. He still wasn't the best fighter, but he was improving. Larxene remained quiet, her nose slightly in the air.
"Come on, Larxene. Congratulate Demyx," Marluxia coaxed.
"Don't tell me what to do, Marluxia."
"Oh come on, don't be a brat," Marluxia purred, moving closer to Larxene. He brought his lips to her ear and started whispering things that Demyx could not hear. Larxene's cheeks turned pink, but she still looked cross.
"You're a pig," she breathed, but not in her usual aggressive tone. It was almost a flirty moan. The mullet-hawked boy was surprised that one: Marluxia was the first man he had seen making a heterosexual advances in the organization and two: that Larxene was actually buying it.
The two continued to flirt, as if Demyx wasn't even there, so the dirty blonde decided to shift his gaze away from them. He looked across the vast desert, scanning the area for any heartless they could have missed. He didn't see any, but instead he saw something else.
It was a cave in the shape of a tiger's head.
"Hey guys, what is that?"
Marluxia and Larxene snapped out of their trance, and turned their attention to Demyx.
"Oh, that?" Larxene croaked, a little embarrassed after letting her guard down around Marluxia. "That's just a cave with a bunch of treasure in it. Nothing that would be of any use to us."
"Treasure?" Demyx echoed.
"Did I stutter? Come on, I think this mission is over." Larxene held her hand up, a black portal emerging from the sand almost immediately after.
"Wait! I want to go in there."
"There's really nothing in there, Demyx. Just gems and stuff," Marluxia said passively.
"But we could be rich!" Demyx protested.
"Nobodies don't have any use for money. We just need hearts. Now, come on," said the pink haired man, entering the portal.
Demyx, reluctant to leave the mysterious cave unexplored, dragged his feet as he followed Larxene into the dark hole of nothingness.
"I just noticed something," Xaldin said to Lexaeus, as they roamed around Hollow Bastion.
"Everyone in the organization is white as snow, except for Xemnas."
Lexaeus gave him a confused look, stopping dead in his tracks. "What's your point?"
"Isn't it kind of weird?"
Lexaeus laughed. "Are you racist, Xaldin?"
"No, no! It's just that I find it weird that all of us are so white and he's dark. Are Nobodies even allowed to have dark skin?"
"Why wouldn't they?" Lexaeus raised an eyebrow smugly.
"What is his race anyway? Is he just tan or is he…"
"I don't know… he's got that white hair and stuff…"
"Do we even have a race? We aren't human…"
Demyx lay silently on his bed, thinking about the dream he had the prior night. It had been so vivid; so real. Axel: with his strong rope like arms and his piercing green eyes, had been so clear. Demyx could swear he almost felt the red head kiss him during the dream, and found himself actually wishing that it had been real.
'Is it okay to feel this way? What is it? Lust…or something more?'
Just then he heard a knock at the door.
"Come in!" he called.
Ironically, Axel himself entered the room, holding an acoustic guitar.
"Hey Demyx, I have a present for you," Axel smiled, holding the guitar out to the blue eyed boy.
"Wow, Axel, this is great! I've missed my guitar… Why are you giving this to me all of a sudden?" Demyx took the guitar happily, running his fingers over its smooth neck.
"Well, I've had it for a while, but I don't know how to play. I thought you might remember how, so why not give it to you? It might help you get some memories back too." Axel scratched the back of his head, eyeing the boy on the bed.
"Wow, I can't thank you enough Axel…really." He didn't know what else to say. Instead, he decided to try and play the wooden instrument in his hands. It took him a minute, but as he plucked at the strings, he slowly picked up pace until he could play a song.
"I like this…What's it called?" asked Axel.
"I don't remember… but I kind of remember the words."
And with that, Demyx began to sing:
"What day is it? And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive
I can't keep up and I can't back down
I've been losing so much time
Cause it's you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it's you and me and all of the people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you."
He trailed off, forgetting the rest of the words. He looked up at Axel, and to his surprised, the emerald eyed man's mouth was a thin line. At first, Demyx thought he was upset, but then Axel sat down next to him on the bed.
"I recognize that song. You have a really nice voice, Dem. It's really…pure."
Demyx smirked. "Did my singing stir up some, I don't know, emotions?"
Axel laughed. "Okay, fine, you win. I guess Nobodies have emotions to an extent, but I still don't believe that they can love."
"Well if they can be happy, sad and angry, who says they can't love?" Demyx locked eyes with Axel, and for the first time, the red head appeared vulnerable. His eyes were glassy, and his pale cheeks had a light pink tint to them. Demyx felt his heart pick up pace, as he remembered his dream.
Axel raised his hand up, hesitated, and then brought it to touch Demyx's cheek, stroking it lightly. He was in a dreamy state, his eyelids heavy. The space between them was quickly decreasing, and Demyx could feel the heat radiating off of Axel. Was he ready for this? Did he want it?
Demyx plunged forward, planting his mouth on Axel's. He had wanted it to be soft and sweet, but he lost control of himself, gripping the sides of Axel's face forcefully. Axel didn't respond, and when Demyx realized he wasn't responding, he pulled away, beat red in the face. Axel's face was blank.
"I- I'm sorry. I lost control of myself. It won't happen again," sputtered Demyx, looking down. There was silence for a moment, where Demyx just wanted to die. But then pale fingers tipped his chin up, so he was staring into Axel's dangerous jade green eyes.
"Never fucking apologize for kissing me ever again." Axel climbed around so he was straddling Demyx on the bed, bringing his lips back to the blonde's, kissing him harder than Demyx had kissed him before. Demyx brought his shaky hands to the small of Axel's back, pulling him closer. Axel's lips tasted just as they had in the dream: smoky, but sweet in a way. They were like sparks on his, planting a tingling feeling on his lips that eventually spread throughout his entire body. Demyx allowed himself to fall backward so he was laying down, a feisty red head on top of him. Axel swiftly pulled off his shirt and cast it aside.
"Demyx…" he paused to kiss the blonde's neck a few times, making a trail up to his jaw bone, then his mouth. He gripped the back of his head, pulling at his soft blonde hair.
"Let me show you a couple of things."
