Disclaimer: I do not own the material from Kingdom Hearts, period. This challenge belongs to the wonderful Wishing-Fire.

A/N: Yes, I come back with another challenge. XD Luckily, this one is short only has eleven themes. I've actually been dying to write out this pairing for a while now, so I'm getting it out of my system (even though I'm riding on a high LOL).

Wishing-Fire's Memory Challenge. I chose to do one of my favorite crack pairings. Why Saïx/Larxene? Because for some reason, the overall theme of "memories" works around Nobodies really well in that they can't "feel" but they have memories of what it was like to feel. Saïx/Larxene is just personal preference on my part. This can be seen an indirect tie to my other Wishing-Fire challenge entitled "Spiralling to a Full Moon" which featured Isa. You don't have to read it, but it links to my fanon of Larxene's Somebody knowing Lea and Isa. :) Also, just note that this might be a little darker than what I usually write for Terra/Aqua. Why? Because Saïx and Larxene are cynical IMO; especially in canon. xD

Anyways, I will stop rambling. I hope you enjoy and I would really appreciate receiving feedback. ^^ Thanks!

~ There's something about you I can't wrap my finger around ~

She leaned back against the couch and meticulously watched his every move. Her feet were comfortably resting on top of the white table and her right index finger was lightly tapping the side of her face. Honestly, there was nothing interesting about him, but she was bored out of her mind and no one was around for her to toy with except him. All afternoon…she's been trying to figure out a way to play with him to her liking.

"Is there a reason why you keep staring at me, Number XII?" his monotone voice rang within the room. Not once did he lift his eyes away from his clipboard.

Larxene smirked, playfully speaking, "No reason. No reason at all."

Suddenly, the pen between his fingers stopped scribbling and he finally looked at her with a raised eyebrow. "…Then stop staring."

"And if I say no?" she challenged with another smirk, earning an exasperated sigh from the Luna Diviner. She cooed mockingly. "Aww, is the Superior's lapdog self-conscious when people are staring at him for long periods of time?"

"Your insults are nothing short of childish, Larxene," Saïx retorted, dismissing his activity of trying to get his mission logs in order. Apparently, that wasn't going to happen; at least not with Larxene hanging around him.

Why wasn't she on a mission?

Practically reading the stoic expression (surprise, surprise) on his face, Larxene examined her fingernails after removing her gloves and answered nonchalantly, "I finished it hours ago. You should get with the times, Saïx—I think you're slipping."

Without even indulging her, Saïx automatically answered, "You pressed your mission on Demyx again, didn't you?"

"That little pipsqueak owes me after he tricked me into doing his mission!" Larxene snapped. Just thinking about Demyx made her want to hurt him again. Verbally speaking of course; she wasn't allowed to place hurt on the other members anymore after getting into a heated 'argument' with Axel. Saïx stared at her evenly before another sigh escaped his lips. Pinching the bridge of his nose, Saïx began walking towards the entrance of the Grey Area. Larxene—having calmed down—asked. "And where are you going?"

"Away from you if that wasn't already obvious."

"Why? Do I scare you?"

Saïx paused in his step and Larxene honestly thought she cornered him. However, once he turned around to face her, Larxene realized that the ball wasn't in her court anymore. Saïx was smirking coldly…and it left a bad taste in her mouth.

Gritting her teeth—but keeping her pride in tact—she asked with a deadpan, "What?"

"You honestly believe that you can test me?" Saïx questioned; almost akin to amusement. He shook his head. "I don't fall for that kind of thing anymore, Larxene; especially coming from you."

That caught her attention immediately and Larxene raised an eyebrow in curiosity. When the smirk on his face didn't go away, the Savage Nymph slowly stood up from her seat—even taking the time to smooth down her coat—before narrowing emerald green eyes in annoyance. Her fingers crackled with electricity and she calmly stated, "This has to be the most obscure thing ever. You're talking too much."

"I could say the same thing about you," Saïx countered, summoning a dark corridor. Locking eyes with her, he added. "You didn't used to get so worked up over nothing…Arlene."

Without warning, Larxene violently threw one of her knives in Saïx's direction; however, he had already disappeared beyond the portal, leaving Larxene alone in the Grey Area. Tightening a fist, she growled under her breath. "Well played, Isa… You bastard."
