HonestyShe walks beside a reaper late at night,
Her pleas hung as a noose around his bones:
They paced the willow seemingly alone
But the moon grew brighter in her spite.
The reaper breathes a sooner, heavy sigh
And listened, hallowed, by the woman's shriek
That ricocheted like bullets; their mystique
Dependent on a pleading mother's cry.
Beneath the willow, now, lay two departed
Beside a reaper who'd just barely started
To tear the world from its triumphant lie:
The lie of living honest in the womb
Of gods they knew in faith, but shunned in doom;
And men they killed but never questioned why.

I had been through this before. New school, new friends, new surroundings. It wasn't that it was a bad thing, it was just really boring. But who was I kidding? It was sort of a lie when I said that I had had new friends, since I had never really had any to start with. My only good friend was one I had made two schools back. His name was Tidus, but we mostly talked over the phone, only seeing each other on important occasions.
When I asked if I could just not change schools, Sora said no, and that he'd help me find some friends, since he had no trouble finding his own. You see, I was staying with him at the moment since my parents had died and they were the closest relatives willing to take me in.
On my first day, I decided that this school wasn't too bad. It was until our research lesson in the computer room where I found my first encounter. I was just doing my usual thing

The next day I avoided Axel. I was feeling too awkward about the previous day to talk to him, so I just pretended as if I forgot what happened and continued as if we didn't know each other. The problem was that I'm not a very good actor, so it was probably strange when he kept catching me staring.
I was also feeling sort of used. I had this nagging feeling that he was only befriending me to get rid of Larxene, though I didn't think that Axel would be the sort of person to do that.
Every time I thought of something, it would always link back to him. It sucked.
After an hour or two, the girls started to notice, and Olette cornered me with a strange look on her face, asking me what was up between me and Axel. I decided that if anyone knew what to do, it would probably be her, so I told her all about what had happened the day before.
"Oh. So you admit you like him, then?" She said with a smirk and a raised eyebrow.
"What? That's not what I said!" I said, a bit too fast

I shrugged, we've been friends for years this wasn't anything new. I went up stairs to his surprisingly neat room and flopped down on the black and white checkered bed. It was always so soft and squishy I loved it. As I flopped though I heard something fall to the floor.Mysterious Diaries of Roxas4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Hm?" I looked down and saw a red sketch book. "Rox draws? I wonder what he draws?" I let curiosity get the better of me and flipped open the book to the main page.
'Don't look/read this! This means you Sora and Axel!'
"Ouch Roxy! That hurts!" I said sarcastically. I flipped through the pages seeing not to many pictures but a lot of words instead. "It's not a sketch book...it's a journal!" H

On Monday afternoon I went to Demyx's house, and he said he had the best plan ever. He thought that we could tackle two problems at once getting rid of Larxene and reigning in Roxas, as he put it. I didn't think this could be good. You can't blame me Larxene was involved, and she was one crazy bitch.
"Well, when Larxene comes to your house as usual, you can pretend to be with Roxas!" He exclaimed.
"Please don't tell me that, by 'with Roxas', you mean what I think you mean..." I replied cautiously after a moment.
"Yep!" He said happily. "And don't tell me you don't want that!"
"Demyx... you know I don't want to freak him out."
"He won't be freaked out! You don't even have to do much. Just say you're going out. But make it convincing, you know." He tried to reason.
"Fine. Okay. But if it doesn't work, you know who's responsible!"
He smiled before answering, "Yep, you."
So, my week was going pretty well until Tuesday afternoon

Meeting up with Tidus was more interesting than I thought it would be. We met at the Twilight Town shops as we had planned, and ended up buying a sea-salt ice cream each, casually strolling around.
He told me all about his new girlfriend, Yuna, and that his family missed me. Nothing much had happened with him, so I was mostly talking the whole way.
It was slightly awkward at first, because he asked me about how I was going without my parents and all that. They had died in a car crash, which was why I was made to live with Sora and Cloud. I told him about their mum, Aerith, and their dad, Cid, and how cool they were. I also explained that they weren't home a lot, working late night often, but that they were going to make an effort to be home more often. I knew that they were on a business trip at the moment, so Cloud was taking care of us.
We also discussed Leon, and how he had been coming over more often. Only brief visits when picking up or going somewhere with Clo

It took me about twenty minutes to get to Axel's house. I walked as fast as I could, but it's not my fault that I'm short and therefore had shorter strides than other people namely Axel. He opened the door pretty much the second after I knocked with a somewhat startled look.
"Hey, Rox!" His expression changed to an odd one. "Why such a red face? Do I make you swoon that much?"
I laughed nervously and felt my cheeks get redder at this. "No... I just walked all the way here."
"Ah. That's all?"
"Well... not quite..." I explained Cloud's sex talk to him, and he laughed quite a bit, especially at my expression.
"Oh man, you poor thing. Don't worry, there are no responsible adults home to take advantage of your poor innocence!" He kept chuckling, and then murmured, "would've loved to see that, though..."
"Or maybe you could compensate by showing me your costume for tomorrow?" I said as I walked inside.
"Wow, you remember about that?"
"Yep. And you're not get

My first week at this school flew by in no time. I wasn't alone when I walked down the halls even if most of the time it was just Sora accompanying me. But apart from him, I mainly talked to Riku about Sora, to Kairi about Sora, and to Namine about her art. I learnt that Hayner liked fighting with Seifer, Pence liked photography, and Olette liked Pence and teasing Hayner about Seifer.
I also talked to Axel and Demyx a few times and although I wouldn't admit it, they were growing on me especially the redhead. Sora always gave me a mischievous look whenever he saw me talking to him, and I'm pretty sure I knew what he was thinking. But I just acted subtle or tried to, anyway.
On the Friday of that week, a particularly strange scene occurred when I was walking to the table that I usually sat at with my new friends. I was walking through a hallway, not really concentrating on my surroundings, when I heard I whisper of "Demyx, shut up! He'll hear us!" I tur

Chapter 3: Lolitas and Homeroom Teachers
My uncle's home was in Radiant Gardens, which wasn't far from Twilight Town, my original home and where Hayner and my other friends lived. Since both towns where so close, one high school was built in the middle so the towns could just save on money.
I found this slightly irresponsible.
The entrance exams alone where really easy and I had to wonder about the curriculum. But at least it was better than getting no education at all, but it's still weird to walk out of my new room and find the yakuza bodyguards in my school uniform. But of course asking them to wear it normal was asking too much then was it?
Well Riku wore it normally, the collar of it slightly unbuttoned but otherwise it was normal. Axel on the other hand didn't button his at all, a red shirt actually under the uniform, his sleeves rolled up all the way, showing the dark ink that marked his skin on his forearms with boots under his pants. Not only that

Why is my name being called so much? I felt my eyes blink and the room came into focus without me really realizing it was out of focus. Namine was standing there, a huge bow in her hair and a smile on her face, her hands clasped behind her back.
"Thinking about stuff?"
"Huh?" I asked, wondering how long I spaced out. It couldn't have been that long right? Looking around me, I noticed our teacher hadn't come into the room and Sora and Riku were still talking in hushed tones in their seats, but Axel was nowhere to be found. He had walked with us but when he got to the school, he left the

I was so excited about Marluxia's party aside from the fact that they were usually pretty much the best parties, I would be going with Roxas, and as a date, meaning I'd get to hold his hand. And touch him.
...In totally appropriate places, I swear.
He had gone home with Sora and their family, but said that he'd be here at my place in the next hour or so. But it had been an hour by now, so I was starting to worry about why he wasn't here yet. I mean, Roxas was always early or on time, right? So why wasn't he here now?
To me, there was only one obvious answer: he had been kidnapped. By a paedophile by the name of Larxene. Or maybe by a pirate? I mean, that Xigbar guy he beat in the tournament had an eye patch, which automatically made him a pirate. Maybe he wanted revenge for being defeated. Or maybe it was a ninja who

The sun was setting as I stumbled my way through the familiar streets of Hollow Bastion, overbalancing a lot and getting weird looks. I had snuck into Cid's alcohol cabinet and taken just whatever I could find, drinking for a few minutes before deciding to go find Axel.
My vision was slightly clouded, but I still recognised where I was, and ended up at one of those playgrounds often frequented by kids. I had seen him walk past here a few times I mean, pfft, it wasn't as if I was stalking him or something and hoped he would come now.
It wasn't long before I heard him approaching, talking to who I recognised as Demyx.
"Axel, I can't believe you're still ignoring him." Demyx sighed, uncharacteristically frustrated.
"Why?" Oh my god, it was him. I froze on the swing, trying to hear what he was saying. "He's the one that kissed that Tidus guy! I mean, I should have seen it coming.
"What the fuck are you talking about?" Woops, did I say that out loud

Notes: Kinda a filler chapter but some stuff is important haha
I was beginning to wonder how many hiding places we could find.
Apparently there where millions of make out spots at school, all of which Axel knew of and most of which we occupied at one time or another. It was an odd feeling having Axel be my boyfriend. For me wanting to hold him and touch him and kiss him, but being with him made me happy.
I was even happy while being pushed against the door to the classroom, Axel's flaming red hair soft between my fingers, his lips soft against mine. In comparison to the rest of his body hard against mine and his wet tongue in my mouth, my mind blank until he finally pulled away enough to let me breathe, moving down my neck to nibble and bite at it.
"Hng, Axel, wait." I muttered, remembering where we actually were. I was unfortunate enough to get classroom duties, which meant I

I had officially started my third week at that school, and was amazed how much had happened in that time. Cloud and Leon were still going strong, but they toned things down a little while in public. Sora's parents, Aerith and Cid, had also returned from a business trip and were doing a lot to help out around the house and have 'family' time.
Aerith was so nice and caring that if she asked me to do something around the house, like laundry and cleaning, I would never be able to refuse, despite how busy I may have been at the time. Cid was pretty blunt most of the time, but was still pretty awesome. At first he came across as kind of intimidating, but I figured out that he was really just a big softie inside.
On the Sunday after Riku's big get-together, we had all gone out to dinner since it was the first day all together. Cloud invited Leon, wanting his parents' approval and to meet him properly. However, Sora and I had to promise Cloud that there would be 'no funny b

However, the person who knew him better than anyone was his worst enemy.

When I would come home from school, my mother would smile and tell me 'Welcome home!', like any good mother would, and I felt relaxed and comfortable because I was, in fact, at home When Hayner's mom did it It just didn't feel the same, and although it was the same tone, same smile and everything, I didn't feel relaxed, I felt sick.
Now when I come home, I'm greeted twice. Once when we open the gate of my uncle's property where tons of yakuza men will bow and yell, "Welcome home, young masters!" in perfect unison and once more by Larxene whose way was petrifying.
We passed all of my uncle's men to the main house and open the door, only to find Larxene turning sharply at whatever startled her, knives poised to throw in her hands.

The next day, Friday, was when we would all be staying at Riku's house for the night. I was kind of nervous, since it would mean I would be close to Roxas the whole time, and I had no idea what he thought of me now. Demyx seemed to think that it would be fine. He could always be quite strange at times. Like with the book he bought me, Computers for Dummies. I didn't think it would help the situation at all.
But somehow, his plans always seemed to work, so I would just have to wait and see.
As pathetic as it sounded, I was elated that Roxas had said a whole sentence to me the previous day. And he was even happy! I mean, people don't joke with people who they hate, right? Well, hopefully.
But anyway. Demyx was still gushing about Zexion by our second lesson that day.
"He's so nice, Axey!" He used the nickname for me that he only used when he was feeling happier and goofier than usual.
"I still say you should just go for the blunt approach, you know." I smirked.
