His mother watched from the kitchen as he pressed small hands against the glass, warm breath obscuring his view. Why's he hiding, Mom? he asked in a small voice, bright blue eyes trained upward.

She crossed the floor quietly, wrapping an arm around his tiny frame and peering out the window smudged with even tinier fingerprints. The clouds were tinted an ethereal green, a product of the reactor belching plumes of smoke in the mountains. The moon wouldn't shine through that. Not tonight.
She stroked pale blond hair lovingly and rested her chin on top of his head, sighing a sound that later would have meaning, but for the moment, meant nothing more than an unanswered question. I don't know, Cloud, came the whispered reply, and the little boy pouted.
She kissed his forehead. It's time for bed, anyway. Go brush your teeth.

What the hell just happened...?
Roxas woke up for what felt like the millionth time the next morning, this time to the inviting scent of pancakes and maple syrup. He could hear Demyx softly singing to himself as he hopped about the kitchen from sizzling pan to sizzling pan.
Sitting up, Roxas rubbed his eyes. He didnt even know what time it was, but it had to be somewhat early because no one else was up yet.
Oh! Roxas, youre up! Demyx said cheerily as he turned around, pancake batter slowly sliding down the spatula and splattering onto to floor. Just in time for breakfast too! Im making pancakes!

"But I'm gonna miss you..."
Axel sighed softly. He didn't want to leave either, but he didn't have a choice. Roxas wasn't making this any easier for him. "I'll miss you too, but I've really got to go now."
"No..." Roxas hugged the tall man tighter, pulling him in so close that from afar they would appear as one. "I'm not going to let you go..."
"Roxas..." Axel bent down so that he could gently kiss the young boy's cheek, which flushed at his touch. "Promise you won't forget me..."
"I won't forget you! I couldn't! You're all I ever think about, all I ever will..." A hot tear rolled down his cheek and he took deeper breaths, trying to stop more from coming.

He could hear the tick tick tick of the small black and white clock on the wall next to him. The blunette rested his head on his palm and let out a silent sigh, not wanting to disrupt the peacefulness of the room.

In the chaos of a typical world meeting, there were always a few who kept to the sidelines and observed. Greece was one of those countries (when he was awake, anyway), staying out of it all and laughing to himself as countries made fools of themselves.
But given all the noise, it was nice to be able to take a break, even if one wasn't actively participating, and sit quietly while not surrounded by loud idiots. Greece often chose to make use of the breaks they were allotted to escape to the roof (when in warmer countries, of course) and lounge in the sun, surrounded by quiet presences, mostly of cats, but occasionally there was another...

He hadnt gone out in 3 months; hed disconnected the phone line, permanently switched off his mobile phone and unplugged the computer. Social life for Axel had taken a sever beating recently, that much was obvious. He still let people come over, even if Demyx was the only one who actually came round.

On summer days, Roxas was prone to sitting around the house, waiting for entertainment to come to him. Hayner had dragged Pence and Olette off to the city for some big struggle tournament that he'd managed to buy three tickets for, leaving Roxas alone. Tidus had blitzball conditioning, and was never NOT busy. It seemed to take a week of internally bemoaning his utter boredom and self-pity before Sora had stormed up to his younger brother and thrown an old-fashioned electronic airplane kit no bigger than his own forearm, complete with the handset, first aide kit, and instruction booklet.
Sora had then proceeded to shove Roxas out of the house, vehemently stating. "I'm sure the park civilians can tolerate your emo rants much better than I can." Which was Sora's way of telling Roxas that he was getting some alone-time with Riku, whether the blond brother liked it or not.
Roxas stared at the closed front door of his house for a few more minutes, clutching the supplies to his che

She hadn't suspected something like this would happen. Jayden had only wanted to go on a walk, like she normally did during the week. It was the usual routine. Get home from a tiring day at school, drop her backpack on the couch, and head out the door for a stroll to relax. Not 15 minutes after she'd started, a single air-slicing scream rang out. Jayden had turned towards the noise, only to see a young woman, maybe in her early twenties, collapse as blood gushed from her throat. Standing above her was another person. It seemed they had, for some reason, bitten out this poor lady's jugular. She gasped for air on the ground, choking out whimpers and whines. Before she had even shut her eyes for good,

His mind was reeling from the scene he had awakened to; he didn't know where to go or what he should do now. He just stood, staring blankly down the hallway. He reached up with one hand and nervously ran his fingers through his mussed hair. It still felt sticky from when Marluxia had smeared honey into it earlier. Without too much thought, he dropped the towel to the floor and cupped his hands together in front of him; a bubble of water seemed to form and grow out of thin air, floating just above his open palms. He then bent over and ran the water through his hair, letting the bubble burst and fall to the ground in a splash.Pain in the Axel Ch. 88 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

His hair was a lively sky blue, while his hat and the poms on his shirt were a darker, marine blue. His eyes gleamed black. "Who are you?" Jayden asked, gripping the glass in her hand. The boy bowed and held out a white-gloved hand. "Hello there, misses! My name is Crazy the Clown!" He said with a seemingly friendly grin. "That explains the makeup, then..." Lana sighed, leaning back against the wall. "How did you find this place?" she asked Crazy. He shrugged.
