Ch.7-Larxene's Scheme, Zexion's Annoyance
So here's chapter Saix. School starts for me tomorrow and college isn't high school. I may not be able to get up chapters as often, but I will continue to write when I can. I am in the middle of Chapter Axel and hope to finish it soon. So, please remain cool if I don't update for a while, okay?
I don't own KH.
Read and Review, please. :3
"Good morni- -aah!" Axel quickly covered his eyes. "You two are as horrible as Marly and Vex!"
The pyro had entered the library early the next morning to greet Zexion and had come across the Schemer and his new found boyfriend passionately making out.
"At least we still have our innocence." Zexion responded neutrally as he and Demyx parted to stare at the red-head.
Axel slowly peeked through his fingers to make sure the two weren't kissing before he removed his hands when he saw that the two were watching him ad dropped his hands by his side.
'Where are Roxas and Xion?" Demyx asked when he noticed that the two Keyblade wielders weren't next to the pyro like usual.
"They went on ahead to Xally's class to study for the test we have today."
"And you didn't join them?" Zexion questioned as Demyx pulled him into a hug.
"No. I decided that I wanted to say hi to you instead of waiting for lunchtime."
Demyx purred happily as he rubbed his cheek against Zexion's.
Axel groaned, sticking his tongue out in disgust as he muttered, "Ugh. Sora, kill me now…."
"You're just jealous because you don't have Roxas in your arms." Demyx said as he possessively tightened his grip on the slate-haired Nobody.
Axel snorted. "I'm waiting until he realized his feelings for me. I'm not gonna push him anymore."
As the trio continued to talk, they never noticed a dark figure standing near the library doors, silently listening in on the conversation that was going on.
"I don't want to make him mad at me." Axel said, glancing off to the side in an act of sadness. "If he were angry at me…I don't know what I'd do…."
Angry at him. The figure thought with a scoff. What an idea.
The form paused.
Make Roxas angry at Axel? What an idea!
The figure strolled away with a smirk on its face.
That's exactly what I'll do.
First period-Algebra II
"Here, Roxy." Axel handed the blonde a can of Monster.
Roxas took the can and stared at it before looking at Axel. "What is it?"
"Monster. Demyx gave me one today and I've been hooked ever since."
"Mm…." Roxas inspected the can again, noticing that it was grape flavored. "I don't know…."
"It's really good…" Axel muttered in a tempting voice. "Trust me."
Roxas stared at the can a bit longer, as if debating on whether it was okay or not, before he hesitantly took a tiny sip of the drink.
It tasted sweet and grapey. It was so sweet it was sickening.
"I think I like sea-salt ice cream better." Roxas held out the Monster to Axel.
"Just keep it." The pyro pushed the can back to the blonde. "You'll get used to the taste."
Roxas gazed at the Monster can skeptically before he shrugged and said, "Thanks, Axel."
Axel gave an indifferent shrug as he turned his eyes to his left arm and began to rub it absentmindedly, trying to get rid of the itch that was irritating him.
He stopped when he felt a vibrating in his pocket and pulled out his phone to see a text from Xemnas.
Meet me after Number III's class. I have a question to ask you. -Superior
A question to ask me? he wondered as he looked at his left arm to see that it was healing pretty well; he wondered when he could go back to just wearing T-shirts. What could be so important that he has to ask me and not someone of higher rank?
Roxas stopped when he noticed that Axel was heading in the wrong direction.
"Where are you going, Axel?"
Axel paused and looked back at the blonde with a smile.
"Mansex wants me. I'll be right on to Lux's class, so go on ahead, M'kay?"
Axel gave a nod and continued heading in the direction of the principal's office as Roxas watched him.
"C'mon, Rox." Xion pulled on the blonde's arm. "We should go before the bell rings."
"….Right." Roxas nodded slightly as he slowly began to follow after Xion, still occasionally glancing behind him as he went.
Axel blinked blankly at Xemnas's question.
"That's all you want to know?" He asked. "If I've seen any Heartless?"
"You seem to be the most connected unlike the others." Xemnas interlocked his fingers and rested his chin on them.
"What does that mean?" The red-head asked with slight anger in his voice.
"Nothing." The silver-haired man smiled slightly. "It just seems that you know more about a Heartless's whereabouts than any other member."
"I want to know what you mean by that."
Xemnas let his eyes fall to Axel's left arm.
"That Giant Heartless a few weeks back." The Superior looked up at the red-head indifferently. "Do you know what happened to it?"
"I heard it got destroyed."
"Yes. Do you know the member who was foolish enough to go up against such a powerful Heartless by themselves?"
"No." Axel stared at Xemnas vacantly.
The two continued the staring contest before Xemnas finally broke it.
"Fine. You are free to go."
Axel gave a slight bow before he turned and walked toward the closed door. He had only just touched the handle when Xemnas decided to speak again.
"Oh, and Axel?"
Axel glanced at Xemnas out of the corner of his eye.
"Keep me updated, will you?"
"What?" Axel turned to face Xemnas halfway as he smirked. "Where's your little watch puppy?"
"My 'puppy' is on a mission. He will be absent for a few days. You are the next best."
"What, don't trust Zexy anymore?"
"He is busy." Xemnas gazed at Axel calmly, but his eyes held meaning.
Axel snorted as he looked away.
"Whatever. But I'm not saying I'll do it."
Axel tensed slightly at the smug sound in Xemnas's voice before he opened the door, stepped out into the brightly lit commons area where the library, auditorium, and front doors were, then shut the door behind him and leaned his back against it with a sigh. He glanced at his left arm.
"Why was he staring at my arm like that?"
Roxas fidgeted in his seat slightly, glancing at the clock on the wall in front of him.
There was still 45 minutes before class ended.
Roxas couldn't wait that long.
He raised his hand and asked, "Um, Mister Luxord?"
It felt so weird calling Luxord 'Mister'.
"Yes, love?" Luxord responded, not looking away from the chalkboard as he continued to write about Supply and Demand.
Okay, that was even weirder. But everyone was used to Luxord calling his students 'Love', 'Darling', or 'Turtledove'.
"Can I go to the restroom?"
Roxas grinned and trotted out of the classroom, heading toward the nearest bathroom which was close to the library.
Axel was walking past the library, heading past the vending machines, as he began to make his way to Luxord's class which was halfway along the hallway that was walking down.
The red-head paused when he heard the voice, glancing behind him.
Roxas sighed as he exited the bathroom and headed back to Economics.
He didn't know why he even allowed Axel to force him a Monster.
Curse my weakness for sugary things…the blonde thought bitterly as he came out into the spacious main commons area where the library and auditorium were.
But Roxas immediately went back and pressed his back against the wall as he tried to figure out whether he had just seen what he thought he did. After a few seconds, he cautiously peered around the corner of the wall, and gasped.
Axel had his back against the wall of the library with Larxene standing beforehand. The Nymph gripped the front of Axel's shirt while the red-head had his hands resting lightly on the blonde's stomach.
But that was not what startled Roxas.
It was the fact that both Nobodies were kissing.
Gradually, Roxas backed up and headed the way he had come, not even caring that his class was in the opposite direction.
But why did his chest hurt? Roxas didn't care who Axel date or even kissed.
So, even knowing that fact, why did he feel so sad?
He hadn't expected to see Larxene striding toward him.
"What do you want?" He asked as he turned to face the lightning Nobody.
"I just wanted to talk to you." Larxene replied innocently with a sly smile as she slowly circled him like a hungry wolf.
Axel watched her every movement carefully, waiting for her to pounce.
And finally she did.
The Nymph pushed him against the nearest wall, which happened to be the wall beside the library's large windows, and gripped the front of his shirt to keep him pinned there as she pressed her body against his and grinned up at him in an almost savage way.
"What do you want, Larxene?" Axel asked in annoyance as he gazed at the blonde Nobody calmly. "I'm in a hurry."
There was a seductive purr from the Nobody.
"I like it when you play hard to get." Larxene murmured, leaning in closer to Axel before she abruptly crashed her lips into the fire Nobody's.
Axel squirmed underneath Larxene as he tried to get away from the hot, lust-filled kiss, but the movement only seemed to get the blonde more riled up.
The Chakram wielder closed his eyes as he put his hands against her stomach in an attempt to push her away.
He didn't want her to kiss him! He wanted another blonde! Another blonde who's kiss was supposed to be sweet and innocent like him. This kiss was only filled with electricity and wild, hungry carnal passion.
This wasn't right. It wasn't right…so why was his body unconsciously relaxing at the unfamiliar touches and why did it feel like his mind was shutting down hen he felt her cool fingers touching the bare skin of his stomach?
It wasn't right.
Axel finally managed to return to his senses when he felt the Nymph try to slip her tongue into his mouth.
He rapidly turned his head away, breaking the kiss.
"Quit it, Larxene." He growled as the girl stared at him in faint confusion. "I'm gonna get mad."
"Why won't you just accept that you like me? !" Larxene questioned furiously, her grip on Axel's shirt tightening as the pyro dropped his hands to his sides. "It's because you like that brat, isn't it?"
"And what if it is? !" Axel glared at Larxene. "What if I like him? What are you going to do about it, you witch?"
Larxene shoved Axel against the wall as she backed away.
"I'm gonna make you regret ever laying eyes on him." She threatened as she turned and ran back toward her classroom.
Axel blinked as he scratched the back of his head in bewilderment.
"What does that mean?"
After a few seconds, he shrugged and continued on to Economics, deciding that it was just an empty threat.
Larxene slowed down until she stopped and glanced behind her to see that she was far away from Axel. The blonde smirked conceitedly as she licked the side of her lips.
Onto phase two…
"Hmm…." Zexion stared up at the shelf that was above him, trying to figure out a way that he could replace the book he held without climbing the shelf and bringing it down with him if he fell. He gazed at the book in his hand before he once again looked at the shelf.
Zexion looked to his right to see Demyx standing at the entrance to the row of bookshelves the Schemer stood in.
"Why aren't you at lunch?" Demyx walked closer to his boyfriend, his sea-green eyes confused.
"I merely have to finish re-shelving this book."
Zexion held up the book.
"Then I will join Axel and company for lunch."
"Do you need help?"
"The book is to be placed two shelves above me." Zexion stared at said shelf with a sigh. "However, I cannot reach it."
"I could give you a boost if ya want, Zexy!" Demyx said eagerly.
"A boost?" Zexion asked skeptically as he glanced at the blonde. "What do you mean by-whoa!"
Demyx suddenly picked Zexion up underneath the arms and easily placed him on his shoulders.
"There ya go! You're a giant now, Zexy!"
Zexion was stunned for a few minutes before he blushed faintly.
The Schemer slipped the book back in place then asked Demyx to put him back on the ground.
"Are ya goin' to lunch now?" Demyx asked as he followed after Zexion, who was walking toward the front of the library.
"Yes. And you…should return to class."
Demyx seemed disappointed as he pouted.
"I shall see you later." Zexion said as he stopped at the library's entrance and faced Demyx. "I am working late tonight."
"Yes. The librarians want me to read a few new books that they got in."
"Oh." Demyx seemed even more withered at the news as he glanced at the ground, putting his arms behind his back as he scuffed a foot against the floor.
Zexion sighed and grabbed the blonde's scarf.
"I'll try to return as quickly as possible, okay?"
Demyx perked up at that.
"Then can we go on a date?"
"Maybe this weekend."
Demyx grinned and gave a nod.
"See you later." Zexion nodded and turned around to leave but was stopped when Demyx called out, "Aren't ya forgettin' something, Zexy?"
The slate-haired Nobody paused and looked at the blonde curiously.
Demyx grinned and tapped his cheek.
Zexion sighed before he rolled his eyes and walked closer to Demyx to give the musician his kiss on the cheek.
Perfect….a figure thought as it watched the two Nobody before turning and walking away. The plan will be set in motion soon….
"I am sure that you are all curious about the meanings of flower colors." Marluxia said as he naturally held his red rose in his left hand. "So, I will make examples of roses."
Axel made a quiet groaning noise and Marluxia shot him a look, but didn't say anything and instead continued on with his lecture.
"Red, of course, means love and passion. It is as hot as the sun, sultry like the arid desert, and as powerful as the most intense carnal instinct…."
"Yo, lover boy!" Axel called when he noticed that Marluxia was staring intently at the rose in his hand. "Head out of your fantasy!"
Marluxia started slightly as he was brought out of his trance and seemed mildly disappointed about his interrupted daydream before he resumed his lesson; he'd have to make sure to see Vexen later that day.
"Blue is enigmatic like it's shrouded in mystery. It is like a tantalizing vision that can't be pinned down or unraveled. It symbolizes the impossible. Black is death and related to mourning."
Axel rested his chin in the palm of his right hand as he tuned out the Graceful Assassin and instead began to doodle on the blank sheet of notepaper in front of him. He eventually got bored with that however and glanced at Roxas as he wondered what the blonde was doing.
"White is often called the 'Flower of Light'. It's meaning is everlasting love-a love that is stronger, and more powerful, than death."
The Keyblade bearer seemed a bit…down.
Axel tilted his head to the side, wondering why Roxas seemed sad.
"Hey." Axel whispered, trying to get Roxas's attestation without gaining Flower boy's. "Hey, psst. Roxy."
Roxas glanced at Axel blankly.
"What's the matter? You seem kinda down."
Roxas remembered what he had seen between Larxene and the red-head and he quickly looked away from Axel.
"It's nothing. Nothing's wrong."
"Purple is the sign of majesty, glory, and opulence…."
Axel became confused at the reaction and leaned on his desk in an attempt to get closer to the blonde without alerting Marluxia.
"Are you sure?" He inquired. "There's really nothing wrong?"
Roxas swallowed and slowly looked at the red-head as he gave a weak smile.
"I'm sure, Axel."
Before Axel could ask anything else, the bell rang and the class immediately rushed out of the classroom.
"Remember to do page 114!" Marluxia yelled after his retreating students. "Problems 1 through 10!"
Zexion was lounging in one of the many comfy red chairs in the library with a heavy book resting open on his legs; many other books lay nearby with faint title visible.
Faint hints of iron, copper, and mint perfume.
Zexion glanced up when he smelled Number Twelve's natural scent a bit too close for his liking.
"Hello, Zexy." Larxene leaned against the back of the slate-haired Nobody's chair as she draped her arms loosely over his chest. "How are you doing today….?"
"What do you want, Number Twelve?" Zexion sighed as he ignored the blonde and resumed reading.
"I need your help with something."
"If you expect to me to abet in whatever scheme you have planned, I am not interested."
"Oh, I knew you'd say that." Larxene leaned closer to the Schemer so that her face was right next to his as she smiled. "If you don't assist in my plan, then I may just have to tell Superior about how you've been keeping secrets from him."
"If you are trying to aggravate me, I would admonish from doing that." Zexion replied simply as he turned a page in his book.
"Now, what if I told someone like Saix that you know who destroyed that level nine Heartless?" Larxene sighed dramatically as she turned her back on Zexion, innocently placing her arms behind her back. "I wonder what he'd say if he understood that you've been defending Axel."
Zexion glanced at Larxene out of the corner of his eye with a mild glare.
"That'd be Dusk worthy." Larxene grinned maliciously as she watched Zexion's response out of the corner of her eye. "Or maybe total elimination on the spot. Don't you think lying would be an affront to Master Xemnas?"
Zexion closed his book loudly and stood up. "What do you want, Larxene?"
Larxene sashayed toward Zexion and circled him.
"I want you to help me afflict damage on little Roxas by destroying his friendship with Axel." Larxene wrapped her arms around Zexion's neck as she reclined her body against the Schemer's. "And I'm going to need your help to do it."
Don't ask why I came up with this. :/ Because even I don't know. Just wait to see how it plays out, huh? :3 And no, I don't like Larxel. It weirds me out, but you have to admit Axel might be bi, but he turns gay for his little Roxy. XD
Anywhoo, please Read and Review. :)
