By Heather Martell

Author's Note: My first yuri fic featuring Larxene. Hope you enjoy and please review!

CHAPTER ONE

The moon rose high in the sky as the stores closed for the night. The left over stragglers headed home to spend with their families and friends.

A lone figure walked along the streets, the black hood covering their face. The figure headed down the streets, evading patrol officers that walked the streets. The figure had a destination in mind and had to get their before it was too late.

"There you are, Luna."

A figure stepped out from the shadows. The figure was also wearing a dark cloak with a hood. The hood hid the person's features but there was no mistaking the playfulness in the voice.

"Xigbar," I said smirking at my friend and partner. "I had a few things to finish."

Xigbar laughed. "I bet. So," he hefted his one of his arrowguns and resting it on his shoulder. "Are we ready?"

I smirked. "Let's do this."

At the palace....

"Where is my favorite nightgown?!" yelled a very pissed off Princess Larxene. She pulled open the doors to the dresser as she looked for her ocean colored silk night gown. Larxene slammed the doors loud enough for everyone in the palace to hear. She marched over to her dresser and pulled the drawers open, revealing an assortment of clothing articles.

"Your gown is in the laundry, miss," said one of the servants as he poked his head through the door.

"That's f-ing great! I wanted to wear it tonight!"

Larxene had a feelingthat something interesting will happen tonight and she wanted to make sure she looked good.

"I guess I'll just wear a tank top and my underwear. Tell father I'm going to bed," Larxene snarled at the servant.

"Yes, ma'am!"

The door closed as the servant scampered out of there, not wanting to feel the princesses wrath that night. The door opened again and in came her younger brother, Demyx and their older brother, Luxford.

"Sent another servant scurrying away, I see," Luxford noted as his sister took out the articles of clothing for bed.

"What were you screaming about now?" Demyx, the youngest out of the three, asked.

Larxeneglared at her brothers. "Nothing that concerns you! Now get out, I want to sleep!"

The boys chuckled and left.

Larxene grumbled a bit more and tore off her day clothes to slip into her pajamas. She pulled back her silk comforters and slipped underneath. She fell asleep, waiting for whatever was to happen.

Outside the palace....

I looked at the three storied palace with it's grand gate that surrounded it and even grander gardens. The palace is beyond beautiful with it's stone walls and stained glass windows.

I turned to Xigbar. "You have the note, right?"

"Got it right here." He took it out of his pocket to show me and stuffed it back in.

"Good. So who's going after the princess?"

'You can. From what I heard she has quiet the temper and she's a slut."

"Huh. Alright, let's get this over with."

Xigbar teleported us into the bed chambers of the princess. Xigbar nodded to me and teleported himself to the throne room where he would plant the note for King Vexen.

I walked over to the sleeping girl. She looked so peaceful sleeping. Her blond hair still slicked back with two longs strands that looked like antenea. I guessed she hadn't been a sleep long enough for her hair to get mussed. Her mouth was parted slightly as she slept. I had the urge to touch her soft skin but I stopped myself before I could do anything. I had a job to do.

Damn, I thought. This is going to be harder than necessary.

I pulled out the rope from my cloak and the duck tap.

I have to work fast, I mused. Or this isn't going to work!

Larxeneshifted from her side till she rested on her back. I bit my lip, not making a sound as I eased the tap off the roller and ripped off a piece. I took a step toward the bed, ready to put the tape on her mouth when...

Larxene woke up. Her ocean blue eyes met with my red ones.

"Who the he-!" I clumped my hand over her mouth.

"Sh! I don't want-Ugh!" I hissed at the last part. Larxene clamped her pearly whites on my hand and I bit down on my tongue from screaming.

I tackled her to the bed, pulling her arms over her head, tying the rope around her thin wrists.

"Hey!" Larxene hissed. "What are you doing?"

"What does it look like, girlie?"

Larxene struggled against me as I tried to tie her ankles. I tied the knot and went to get the tape.

"Oh no you don't!" She opened her mouth to scream.

I started to panic. What I was about to do I would regret for awhile.

"Damn," I muttered.

I kissed her and hard.

Larxenestopped struggling. She gasped as I pushed her mouth opened and slipped my tongue in. I ran my hands up and down her arms. It worked. Larxene was too preoccupied with me kissing her that she didn't notice the tape. I pulled away, breathing hard. Larxene turned red in the face, staring at me.

"You..." she gasped.

I leaned forward, my lips barely touching her ear. "Forgive me, princess." I pressed a soft spot on the side of her neck and Larxene went limp. I pressed my ear against her chest just to make sure she was still breathing. Satisfied that she was, I put the tap over her mouth and hefted to her my shoulder.

Xigbar appeared in the room.

"The notes been planted. We should leave," he said. Xigbar noticed my face. "You look flustered, Luna. You okay?"

My face was still red from the kiss. "I'll explain later. Let's get out of here."

Xigbar continued to stare at me for a few seconds and nodded. He opened a portal and waited. I entered with the princess over my shoulder and Xigbar right behind us.

Another portal opened and we stepped out to be greeted by the usual glow of the thief village. Larxene shivered in her sleep. I looked over to her.

"I better get home before she gets sick." I turned to my partner. "See'ya tomorrow, Xig."

"Have fun with the tempermental princess," he laughed.

I rolled my eyes at him and smirked. I waved goodbye and headed down the dirt street.

I lived in a small two bedroom house. Its fine for what I need. I opened the door to the place and headed in. I always kept at least one light on when I'm away on business. I pushed opened the door to my room and headed inside. I set Larxene down on my kingsized bed, undid the rope, pulled the tape off her mouth and pulled the covers over her. I'll have to find something that would fit. None of my clothes would. I wasn't that skinny.

I sat down on the bed and pulled my boots and cloak off. I stretched before slipping under the covers. I checked to see Larxene breathing softly and sound a sleep.

Morning...

"WHERE THE HELL AM I!?!?!?"

I bolted up right in bed and turned to see a very pissed off princess.

Larxene glared daggers at me, her face bright red from anger.

"Morning to you too," I said pushing the blankets off me. Larxene grabbed the back of my shirt and pulled me back onto the bed. She held onto my wrists tightly and continued to glare. I gave her a blank look.

"How dare you take me away! Who the hell do you think you are?!" she hissed.

I looked at her calmly. "The names Luna." I slipped through her weak grasp, pushed her off me and shoved her against the bed. "I'm a thief and sometimes kidnapper."

Larxenestruggled against my tight grip, her ocean blue eyes blazing.

"The more you struggle, princess, the more bruises you'll get," I told her.

"If you think you'll get anything from my father your nuts!"

I raised a brow. "We'll see." I let her go and leaned back in time before her fist could touch me. I smirked at her.

"You know your cute when your angry."

Larxene flushed. "As if! In your dreams!"

I shrugged. "Oh well. I bet your hungry. I'll go and make lunch." I headed to the door and stopped. "You can borrow a shirt and pants of mine till we get you something more your size." The door shut behind me.

Larxene stared as she sat on the bed. "Who the hell is that girl?"

A few minutes later Larxene came out wearing one of over sized shirts that I usually wear as pajamas and a pair of my pants with the pant legs rolled up. I thought she looked cute in the outfit but I kept the thought to myself. I only kidnapped her for the money and that was it. There was no room for romance. Not matter how much I wanted it.

"How do you like your eggs, princess?" I asked from the stove.

Larxene sat at the table and sulked for a few seconds before answering. "Scrambled."

"Okay."

I finished scrambling the eggs and set the table.

Breakfast is quite. Larxene nibbles at her breakfast as if I poisoned it.

I finished, stood up and put the dishes in the sink. I turned.

"Once your done eating, I'll take you out clothes shopping," I said.

"Why do you even bother?" she asked. "Your not much of a kidnapper, you know. Kidnappers don't usually take the hostages shopping."

I leaned against the counter. "Maybe but you'll be staying here for a while so I might as well make you comfortable."

"You sound more like a protective girlfriend than a kidnapper."

I smirked slightly. "I protect my investments, princess."

Understanding dawned on her face. "I see. Your after my father's fortune. Good luck trying to get money out of him."

"Oh? Why would that be hard? You act as if the ungrateful bastard doesn't care for his own children."

Larxene raised a brow at the name I given her father. "What is your grudge against him?"

I turned my back on her, stiffening when I heard the scrap of the chair and her small, soft hand on my back. I still didn't turned to face her. Larxene put a hand on my chin and forced me to look at her. My red eyes met with her blue ones.

"Tell me," she said softly.

I was stunned. I had heard how much of a slut Larxene is and how hateful she was to others. Yet here she was, trying persuade me into telling her why I hated her father. I rested a hand on hers and drew her small hand away from my face. I didn't let go, either. I held her small hand in mine, feeling the warmth that flowed through her skin. I placed my other hand on the back of her head and drew her towards me. Larxene's eyes grew wide, wondering if I would kiss her again. I placed my lips close to her ear.

"Don't try to seduce me, princess," I told her. "It will not work on me."

I pulled away. "Get ready. We'll be leaving soon."

I left the room to head to the bathroom.

Larxene stood in the kitchen. "What just happened?" She placed her hand over her heart, feeling it beat wildly against it.
