He was lifted by Elise's much taller friend, who she decided to call Rufus, the second he went through the doorway. He carried the kicking heir by the shoulders to his mistress. She was waiting two floors below them. Emily was sitting at the end of the dining room table, massaging her temples.

"Could you please tell your behemoth to let go of me?"
"No. Now tell me what your problem is, love."
"Huh? You already know."
"Not that, I mean why are you avoiding me and Elise?"
"Because if I don't you'll try to 'help' me and your methods are unethical, to say the least."
" Well, excuse me for being a good friend," while speaking she nodded, permitting Rufus to gently put James back on his feet. The brunet rubbed his shoulder before glaring at the gargantuan butler.

Let me out
I can hear the mysterious voice and Mr. Hachi's mumbling, but I'm used to it. Whenever I walk by the red-haired man's desk, he smiles at me. I return the gesture rather enthusiastically. Kairi's passing still lingers in my mind. I should be a bit more sad that Kairi's dead, but I can't stop grinning. I admit I was a bit shocked when I saw her headless body the other day, and sure, I felt bad for her, but I decided to be more optimistic about the matter. I mean, she's the same girl who sabotaged my science project and laughed at me as I received an F The same girl who pretended to be gay and stole my first girlfriend The same girl who "accidentally" dropped my laptop Thank God she's gone.

Before I start to panic, something catches my eye. Next to me, there is a beautiful blue-haired woman in a white coat fiddling with machines. She glances at me before stopping what she's doing and smiling.
"Good afternoon." she states, her voice matching her mother-like appearance. I weakly return the greeting. "You're in the hospital, dear. Do you have any family members you'd want me to contact?"
As she speaks, I sit up and observe the room. I realize that I'm covered with bandages and sitting on an adjustable bed. What happened last night suddenly comes pouring back into my mind.
"Um yeah, my brother Sora," I answer. I tell her how to contact him and she writes it down. "Um H How did I get h

Sora told me to wait in the living room for his our mother. She'll supposedly clarify what happened when Roxas was created. I'm shifting nervously on the couch as I contemplate whether I want to know the truth. Did she leave me to be experimented on because she didn't have a choice or because she didn't want me? Would I rather live in denial or reclaim my lost memories?

Really? Just when I was about to leave After forcing a smile, I turn to see the person calling me. It's an unfamiliar Goth around my age. His dark hair partially covers his face and expression is difficult to read.
"My name is Zexion Roku. I was ordered by Big Boss to give you this before you leave for the day."
He's pretty mature for his age. He hands me a few sheets of paper.
"What's this for?"
"It's a contract," Zexion says. "You see we need to ensure your ability to keep our company's secrets."
"So I'm one of you guys now?"
"Oh no, not yet. This is merely a precaution. Now, I strongly encourage you to read this contract to the letter before signing it."
I nod as I pretend to look over the document. It's just basic work regulations. Dress formally, respect your employees, yadda, yadda, yadda I sign on whatever line I see and write any information it asks for before giving it back to Zexion.

"Have you given Roxas the contract?"
"Yes. He returned it the same day."
I'm used to Saix's soft-spoken, short responses. He's an extremely serious person. It's no surprise since he takes after Big Boss.
"Are you sure about this one?" he asks. "It's only been two weeks."
"He seems trustworthy."
"Your decision isn't being influenced by Eight's desire for her, is it?" my boss's eyes narrow.
" Oh " I focus my attention on my desk in order to avoid Saix's fearsome stare. "You've heard about that?"

Summary: Jake's always been a bit of a loner. He keeps to himself and doesn't mind it that way. But he can't help it when his eyes are drawn in by the dazzlingly personality of Hunter, the most popular jock in his class. But slowly, Hunter breaks down Jake's invisible shield and they become friends through peculiar circumstances. Still, is it really possible for Jake to be just friends with Hunter? Can he keep his feelings bottled up?
Jake watched that delicious sweat drip down Hunter's back as he ran in for another lay-up. His biceps bunched as he moved, and a mesmerizing smile displayed across his radiate face, slowing down time and causing the raven-haired boy's heart to ache.
Jake had been observing from the bleachers each day for the past week since basketball practice started. He, of course, told the devoted athlete that he was just there for moral support and as his friend.

I was shoved hard against a brick wall, a hand enclosing around my throat.
"No," I gasped through clenched teeth, groaning in pain. "P- Please stop."
The silver-haired man moved closer to me and grinned, revealing slightly crooked, tobacco-stained teeth.
"Then hand it over," He sneered, allowing his free hand to roam my body for valuables.
I trembled and clamped my grey eyes shut, feeling the grip on my neck tightening.
"I- It's in my pocket." I mouthed, struggling to breathe.
I felt his hand reach deep into my pants pocket and grab hold of my wallet. He pulled it out, grinning like he'd just won the lottery. Still keeping a strong grasp around my neck, he dug into the wallet, seizing a wad of money.
"Thank you very much." He derided, and coldly threw me to the side.
I landed hard against the alley's cracked concrete and sat up slowly as he ran off, stuffing the bills into his pocket.

Ryo sat in half-disbelief. Across from him was the much more serious, dark haired man, seated in a wine-coloured armchair. This man was about to complete the transaction of hiring him as his male lover. Although Ryo was a professional host, given the particular situation, this was unlike any of his other engagements. He had never been hired to romance someone of the same sex, let alone agreeing with something as ludicrous as this. The dark haired man glanced up at him from under his bangs, his gaze piercing through his gold-rimmed glasses.
“Suwabe-san, do you have any questions regarding this matter?” he asked, trying to settle business matters as professionally as possible. Ryo flicked his hazel eyes up, caught off guard by his question.
“Ah, no. Everything seems pretty straight forward,” Ryo replied, trying to remain composed. He was one of the most prestigious workers in his club. His forthright attitude and

Xemnas Ichi Everyone at the Corp calls him Big Boss. I heard he's as poised as he is daunting, and has dark skin, yellow eyes, and long white hair. It'll be pretty awkward to work for the most powerful man in the company, but I guess I'll have to get used to it.
I knock on the door labeled with the Roman numeral I and wait for someone to answer. After a while I knock again. No response. I look around for any nearby workers. Mr. Ni happens to be passing through with another armful of blueprints.
"Um, Mr. Ni?" I call him. When he sees me with his good eye, he smiles evilly while walking toward me.
"Is Mr. I-"
"Because obviously what I'm doing isn't nearly as important!"
He suddenly wraps his free arm around my neck rather tightly.

A few strokes on the keyboard from Officer Thomas, and the satellite feed was pulled up. I watched what I could, biting the inside of my lip as my superior officer reviewed the tape in silence.
It was a horrible feeling. Other than the damage to my pride I'd been lucky. A cut on my head, some scraps on my knees, and some bad bruising on my back and legs. I squirmed in my seat, slowly looking up, just in time to see the man pull back, his seed on my face in the HD video feed. My face burned, and I looked back down.
Thomas shut the video off then, because the criminals had cut off the tape after that, and disabled the gps. The car was gone. I heard him sigh heavily. "Roderick " He said quietly. I didn't want to look at him, and he sighed, sitting behind his desk. "Look at me, that's an order."
