All Nobodies got enjoyment out of something, even if these activities didn't make them experience joy or happiness. Some worked out in the gym, that would be Lexaeus. Others, played cards and showed everyone how much they sucked at card games, meaning Luxord. But some… some found enjoyment in the manipulation, torture, and sadness of others. That is where Zexion comes in.
Zexion's latest 'toy' (as he so cleverly called her) was at the time (when the story takes place) chained to the wall by her wrists in the seventh basement level of Castle Oblivion. She was sleeping, whimpering helplessly while she dozed.
Zexion was heading down the stairs to his 'special room' as he called it, when he met with Xaldin. The shorter member of Organization XIII nodded in respect of his superior. "Number III," he said in acknowledgment. The boy was about to continue down the stairs, but Xaldin put his arm out to stop him.

Roxas couldn't say the word, he just couldn't let it slip off his tongue.

He wanted to remember more about his past, things he did, people he met, so many things he couldn't remember.

He threw his blade to the ground and leaned on his knees, trying to catch his breath. Axel had been training him nonstop since he had woken up. After he first arrived here and recovered completly, Xemens had requested that Axel train Roxas. Roxas didn't really understand completly what he was being trained for exactly, but he went along with it. "A-Axel...can...can we please take a break?" Axel raised a brow. "Tired already?

Axel suddenly appeared in the room, his face a study in concern as he crossed to where Roxas was hacking, bending down to look at him carefully. "Hey, now, you okay?"
Roxas glared up at him, his coughing fit subsided. "I blame you."
Axel gave him a sheepish grin, rubbing at the back of his head awkwardly. "I don't know that I'd say that..."
The glare intensified. "You locked me out of the castle. In the rain. For three hours." He held the gaze for a couple moments, then fell back onto the pillows with a heavy sigh.

Seemed like it.
He should have been used to the pain now though, right? Wrong. Pain was horrid, and often came in different ways, and different surges. Death doesn't have to hurt, but how he died, it often did.
He lifted up his hand to place it on his chest, the warm blood spilling out of his gun wound and silently crawling down his wrist. The blood stained Kenny's orange jacket with an awful color.
He laughed softly and then leaned over and with a loud and dry cough, blood spewed from the back of his throat. Lines of crimson liquid leaked down the corners of his mouth.

L opened the door to Watari's office, just as a small vase was thrown; it narrowly missed his head as it collided with the wall beside him. He raised his eyebrows, glad for Mello's less-than-perfect aim. "I heard a commotion," he said evenly, "What seems to be the problem?"
Mello, whose furious tirade had greeted L as he entered, heaved in anger. "L, this sunuvabitch thinks I broke Watari's computer! I'm trying to tell 'em I wasn't even nearby but they won't listen."
L glanced at Roger's disconcerted face, then Watari's, which looked as passive and grandfatherly as ever; he doubted it was the destruction of personal property that would upset Watari so much as the presence of criminal activity in his home.
He twisted around in the doorframe and spoke to someone behind him. "Are you coming in?" There was a pause, and Near walked in, hands in his pockets in a very L-like posture. He stood off to the side, a curiously dark expression on his face.

Vexen watched as the portal disappeared and he was once again left alone in his labs to brood over the whole ordeal. Him? Dancing? He had better things to do than to dance, although that mission-free week sounded pretty good... A sigh escaped his lips and he decided that he had better learn fast, because a week to get used to your partner wasn't as much time as one might think. He had considered creating a replica of himself to take his place in the contest, but it took several weeks to create a decent replica and program it's brain, and since Vexen didn't much know how to dance, himself, it would take longer to program the new information, which he did not have time for.
