Chapter 1: The Worst Day Ever

Nightshroud: After my success with I Won't Say I'm in Love, I've decided to do another Larxel fic. This is set in modern times, btw. I hope you enjoy!

Larxene slammed the door of her apartment.

"The NERVE of some people!" she shouted. Marluxia, her friend that shared her apartment with her, looked up from his magazine.

"First day at work, and something bad already happened?" he asked. She threw her jacket on the sofa and flopped down.

"You can say that again. I was so happy getting that job, and of course I end up getting into a fight some jerk on my floor. And as soon as we stop arguing, Mr. Xemnas, the president of the company, shows me my office, which I have to share with him! Of all people I have to share an office with Axel!"

"What did he do that made you so mad?" asked Marluxia.

"I don't know. First he made fun of my bangs, calling them antennas. Then he made fun of my clothes, spread rumors that I'm have AIDS, and posted an embarrasing picture of me on the bulletin in the copy room. and...ugh he's just so obnoxious!"

"Hey, I designed those!" said Marluxia, who was trying to become a clothing designer. "And which picture was it? Not the one from the Christmas party?"

"Yes, that one."

"Oh, poor you. Is he cute?"

"Yeah, almost all the women in the office were drooling all over him."

"You hate him, but you don't have any problem saying he's cute?"

"Well, it doesn't excuse the fact that he's an asshole."

"Point taken."

Larxene sighed and rested her head on her hands. "Maybe I shouldn't go to work tomorrow."

"And let him think he's won. Not a chance. You go back there and show him the sadistic witch I know you are."

Larxene glared. "Thanks, Marluxia. That boosted my confidence."

He shrugged and motioned to the kitchen. "I made you dinner."

"Nah, I'm just going to get a shower and go to bed. And start this whole nightmare again."

She trudged up the stairs and took her shower, all the while thinking, "How am I going to make it through this?"

Nightshroud: Short chapter, but I just wanted to give a little intro into why Larxene hates Axel so much in this story. I hope you keep reading.
