(A/N: I realized a couple days ago that this would be my 14th FanFiction! ^^ So, in honor of that, it's about Xion! Sorta... Enjoy!)


Yours to Hold

'You said you'd always be there for me! But you're not. It's because of me. It's my fault. It's my... fault.'

Xion sighed and looked at the melting, untouched ice cream in her hand. Below her, she could see Roxas and Axel arguing, still. Roxas looked like he was about to summon Oathkeeper, while Axel still had his Chakrams out from earlier. The three, which included her, had gotten into a fight that morning, mainly over Roxas insisting Axel leave Xion alone. The redhead had told him he would, as long as she didn't run away. The girl had sighed as Roxas looked at her expectantly.

"Y-You mean... you want to leave?" he had asked, lips trembling, his eyes filling with tears. "B-But we're best friends! Why do you want to run away from us?"

"You wouldn't understand, Roxas!" she had snapped at him. She hadn't meant to, of course, but she was frustrated. He couldn't see how hard it was for her to make that decision in the first place. But she had to... Didn't she?

"See, Roxas?" Axel had butted in. "You don't want her to go, and I don't want her to go. Logically, I have to bring her back."

"You don't have to be so rough," he had mumbled, looking down. Then he had turned to his pyro friend. "Axel. If she wants to go, we have to support her. You said that's what friends do. They support each other. We can't keep her here."

The two had gotten violent not only in words but in actions. Roxas had quickly summoned his Keyblade and Axel his Chakrams. Xion had run by then, heading straight for the Clock Tower near them, since they had been on their way up there anyway. Roxas' and Axel's ice creams were long forgotten as they spewed foul words at each other. It's all my fault... she thought. It's my fault Roxas and Axel are arguing, it's my fault Roxas is so worried all the time, and it's my fault Axel has been attacking me in the first place. It's all my fault! She angrily threw her ice cream down the Clock Tower, not caring where it landed. She found out, however, when she heard an annoyed 'Hey!' cry up from none other than her pyromaniac friend. She could hear Roxas' laughter as he desummoned his Keyblade and Axel desummoned his Chakrams, laughing also, albeit embarrassed.

The two made their way up to Xion, who sat on the ledge already. "Xion!" Roxas cried, running to her and giving her a hug from behind. Axel, meanwhile, leaned against the wall with his arms crossed, a scowl on his face as Sea Salt Ice Cream trickled down his cheek from his hair. The once red spikes were now covered in the blue-green substance.

"Axel! I'm so sorry!" she said, standing up. "I wasn't looking where I was throwing it, and-"

He held up a hand, silencing her. "It's fine, Xion. In fact, I'm grateful, since you broke up the argument. Thanks."

"S-So, you're not mad?"

He shook his head no, and she sighed in relief.

"Hey, why don't I go get some more ice cream?" Axel suggested. "Then we can just pretend this never happened."

Roxas and Xion nodded their agreement, and he was soon gone. Roxas turned to her.

"Hey, you okay?"

"Yeah, 'specially since that's over."

He frowned. "...You know, we both meant what we said, Xi. I'm not gonna stop you, but he'll try. I really don't want you to go, though."

"I know, Rox. I … don't really want to go, either. But I have to."

He sighed and looked down. "I know... sorta. From what you've told me, anyway."

An awkward silence passed, until Xion grinned at him. "Ya know, I should have aimed for you."

A small smile spread on his face as well. "Oh, really? Why's that?"

"Because I think your hair would look hilarious if it was bluish green."

He chuckled. "Maybe I'll smear mine all over your face; see how you like it."

They laughed as Axel came back and handed them an ice cream each. The three best friends sat together on the Clock Tower's ledge, just like old times. Best friends, forever.

'You're my very best friend.'

'You're mine too.'

'And we'll always be friends forever, won't we?'

'Yeah, forever!'
