Okay, so this is a preview of a new fic I'm planning on starting, along with another one called Twisted Love. I'm uploading the first chapter of both, and I want you all to tell me which one you want to see first. I'm only going to do one at a time, but I will do both eventually. So, read this, and Twisted Love, and tell me what you think.

The blond opened his eyes slowly, sighing. Then he looked around the room he was in, suddenly aware that he wasn't in his usual room. At first he was confused.
'What…where am I?' he wondered, looking around. Then he remembered.
The Day Before
He looked from his mother, to his father, then back to his mother again.
"…Say what?" he asked, astonished at what he had just heard.
"You and your sister are going to live with your cousins." His mother repeated. He glanced over at the black haired girl next to him.
"Why?" he demanded. Their mother shrugged.
"Roxas, I already told you. Your father and I have to go out of town for a while, and we're not leaving the two of you home alone. Your cousins have kindly volunteered to take you in until we get back." She explained. Roxas sighed.
"For how long?" asked his twin sister, Xion. Their father shrugged.
"About two months, give or take." He replied. Roxas' jaw dropped.
"Two months! You expect us to live with total strangers for two months!" he cried. Their mother sighed loudly.
"Roxas, they're not total strangers. They're family, and just because you haven't seen them in years, doesn't mean they're strangers." She said. Roxas groaned, knowing he wasn't going to escape this. He turned to Xion.
"Guess we better get packed." He said. She nodded, and the two went upstairs.
Two Hours Later
Roxas and Xion stepped off of the train into the Twilight Town station. They looked around, trying to find anyone who they vaguely remembered.
"See anyone?" Xion asked. Roxas shook his head. Suddenly he turned and saw a man with flaming red hair coming towards them.
"Um...Xion? I think I found him." he said, smiling. Xion turned, and her face lit up.
"No way." she said, grinning widely. Roxas ran over and hugged the man.
"Axel! They didn't tell us we were staying with you!" he cried. Xion ran over and hugged him too. Axel smiled, his crimson hair spiked back. There were purple upside down teardrops under his eyes.
"Hey guys, long time no see. God, you guys grew up." he said. "Come on guys, wait 'til you see my house." he said. They followed, loading their suitcases into his...bright red Ferrari!"
"Whoa, this is yours?" Roxas gawked. Axel smiled.
"Yep. Anyway, lets go, we've got to find you guys a room at the house." he said. Xion looked at him quizzically, but he just shook his head.
"You'll see what I mean." he said.
Axel's house was huge. Three stories, with a huge gated fence surrounding a massive yard. Axel pulled into the driveway and helped the twins with their things. The house was even nicer on the inside. High ceilings and crystal chandeliers were features of nearly every room, and a massive spiral staircase led up into the higher floors.
"GUYS, I'M HOME! AND I BROUGHT OUR NEWEST GUESTS!" Axel bellowed. Roxas glanced over at Xion, who shrugged. Axel looked back at them, smiling.
"By the way, I'm not the only one who lives here." he said. Suddenly a boy around Axel's age bounded down the stairs. He had blond hair in some sort of spiked up mullet, and he wrapped his arms around Axel's neck, hugging him tightly.
"HI AXY!" he yelled. Axel laughed.
"Guys this is Demyx." he said. Another boy walked down the stairs. He had slate coloured hair that covered half of his face.
"And this is his boyfriend, Zexion." Axel added. Demyx laughed, hugging Zexion and giving him a kiss.
"Ew, get a room!" Roxas laughed. Demyx frowned.
"Do you have a problem?" he asked, looking genuinely hurt. Roxas turned red.
"Um…no, I…sorry. I don't have a problem. Uh…I am too." he said. Demyx smiled.
"Oh, okay. Sorry, I just hate homophobia." he said. Xion laughed, shaking her head.
"Wow, Rox. Five minutes and you've already pissed someone off." she said. Roxas frowned.
"Shut up, Xion." he mumbled. Before he could say anything else, someone else came down. She was younger, and had blonde hair, followed by a girl who looked similar, only older and with red hair.
"This is Kairi, and that's Namine. She's the youngest." Axel said. Namine frowned.
"You don't have to tell everyone that." she huffed. Axel laughed, but said nothing. Following those two was a boy maybe a year older than Roxas, with silver hair and striking turquoise eyes.
"That's Riku." Axel said. The silver haired boy nodded in greeting, and Roxas returned the gesture. Next, two more people came downstairs. One was a girl, with blonde hair and that looked like it had antenna, and a boy with…pink hair. Roxas nearly burst out laughing.
"This is Larxene, and the one with the flamboyant hair is her boyfriend Marluxia. He doesn't live here." Axel said. Larxene walked over and looked at Roxas.
"He's kinda cute. I approve." she said. Roxas turned bright red again, and Xion burst out laughing.
"Larxene, leave him alone." said a brunette who had come down the stairs. He had radiant blue eyes, and Roxas couldn't help but stare. Xion leaned over.
"Hubba hubba." she said. Roxas nodded.
"This is Sora." Axel said. The brunette grinned manically and held out a hand.
"Nice to meet you." he said. Roxas shook it.
"That's it. They all live here…except Marluxia, but he's here all the time, so he might as well live here. Anyway, guys, these are my cousins, Roxas and Xion. Their parents are gone for a few months, so they're staying with us." he said.
"Hello Roxas and Xion." they all said at exactly the same time.
"I feel like I'm at an AA meeting." Xion said jokingly. Everyone laughed.
Roxas put his suitcase in his room and looked around. The room was huge, and the bed looked like it could fit three people with room to spare. Sighing, he walked from the room and down into the entryway again. Listening, he heard people in the next room and went in. Xion was already there, and everyone was talking.
"Roxie!" Sora squealed when he walked in. Roxas scowled.
"Don't call me that." he said. Walking over, he sat down in the only free seat, next to Sora.
"So…why does everyone…besides Marluxia of course…live here with you, Axel?" Xion asked. Axel shrugged.
"Everyone's got their own story." he said. Roxas looked over at them all, wondering what everyone's story was. He didn't have to wonder long, because a few of them started talking.
"Well, I don't really have a story." said Larxene. "I'm Axel's cousin, and I needed a place to stay, so he let me crash here. Of course, that was two years ago, but I just didn't want to be anywhere else." she explained. Roxas looked to Demyx and Zexion.
"Axel's my bestest buddy, so I moved in with him as soon as he got the house." Demyx said, grinning. Zexion still had a depressed look, and said nothing.
"I left when my parents caught me about to have sex with a girl and kicked her out. They tried to make me stop seeing her, but I refused and came to live with Axel. We'd been friends a while. Anyway, the girl's family left the next week and I haven't heard from her since, but I can't go home." Riku said.
"That's horrible." Xion said. Riku smiled kindly at her.
"It's alright. It's way better living here than it ever was at home." he said. Xion smiled as well. Roxas looked over at Kairi and Namine.
"Our parents died five years ago. Axel found us on the street and took us in." Kairi said sadly. Namine looked down at the floor.
"I'm sorry." Roxas said, not quite sure what else to say. Kairi nodded.
"What about you, Sora?" Xion asked. Roxas looked over at the boy. He looked pale, like he was dreading this.
"I…I don't want to talk about it." he said quietly. He looked very upset, and Roxas wasn't going to push.
"That's alright. You don't have to tell us if you don't want." he said. Sora looked at him thankfully. Roxas smiled.
"Anyway, that's pretty much it. While you're here you can do whatever you want, and you can go wherever, whenever, as long as you tell me first. And I don't mean ask me, I mean walk into the room, say 'Axel, we're going to the mall' and leave." he said. Roxas stared at him, thinking he was finished, but he went on.
"There is only one rule that I'm going to enforce while you're here. No alcohol in the house. At all. That also means, you go out get drunk, you don't come home. Get a motel room, sleep in the car in the driveway, I don't care, just don't come back until you're sober. Got it memorized?" he said. Roxas and Xion nodded. With that, everyone left, and Roxas and Xion were left alone in the huge living room, staring at each other.
