Song: Miracle by Cascada


Larxene sighed as she sat down at her desk. Work hadn't been the same since Axel was fired.

"For my mistake..." she thought sourly.

She couldn't help but feel at angry at Axel for what he had done, but at the same time, she wondered if it was her fault.

"Maybe if I hadn't been so afraid to accept my feelings, this wouldn't have happened..."

Then Larxene was startled by a sudden realization.

"I don't care whose fault it is. I don't care about what he did. I just want Axel back."

She stood and rushed to Xemnas's office. Regardless of what happened, this was something she needed to do.


"Mr. Xemnas!" said Larxene, bursting into his office. Xemnas looked up, clearly annoyed with the intrusion.

"What is it, Larxene?"

"Axel didn't do it," she said, her eyes beginning to water.

"What are you-"

"Axel didn't put up those pictures of you! I did!"

Xemnas stared, wide-eyed. "Are you telling me that I fired a valuable employee to the company because of you?"

"Yes..." she said miserably, hanging her head. "Please, please just hire Axel back."

Xemnas sighed. "I would hire Axel back, but then you realize that you would have to be fired."

"Yes, I understand. And I'm very sorry, sir. You didn't deserve to have all those things said about you. I was upset with what had happened between you and Marluxia, and I just let myself get out of hand."

"Marluxia?" he said, raising and eyebrow.

"Yes, sir. He and I are close friends. He told me about what happened, and how Vexen framed him, and how you took Vexen's side and fired him."

"I see..." Xemnas said, folding his hands. "How about you find Axel, and we discuss this later."

"Yes, sir," Larxene said, sighing with relief. She rushed out of the room and toward the elevator. Once on the bottom floor, she rushed toward the door. She saw Roxas, Axel's best friend, walking past her.

"Roxas!" Larxene called. He turned and looked at her.

"Oh, hey...Larxene, right?"

"Yeah. Listen, do you know where Axel lives?"

"Yeah, 942 West Boulevard. You might be too late though."

"Why?" she asked, suddenly gripped by fear.

"Well, he said to keep this on the down-low, but he's packing up his apartment and moving. Apparently, he got a job offer pretty far away, and he's going to go there."

"Oh no!" Larxene said, rushing out the door, leaving a puzzled Roxas by the door.


Axel groaned as he hauled the last box inside his car. He sighed as he contemplated what he was doing.

"It's for the best," he thought. He turned to walk back inside his house when he heard his name being called.

"Axel!"

He turned and saw Larxene running up the street toward him.

"Larxene?" he asked, clearly confused. She ran up to him and threw her arms around him, rubbing her face into his chest.

"Axel, please come back. I need you so much. I told Mr. Xemnas the truth, and he's going to offer you your job back. Even if you have a girlfriend, being around you is better than nothing. I can't keep going without you there!"

"Larxene, I-"

"What's going on?" said Axel's girlfriend, coming out of his house. She brushed her black hair back as she glared at Larxene.

"Why is she hanging off of you?" she demanded angrily.

"Cass, listen-"

"Back off, bitch," Larxene hissed "before I break you like the twig you are!"

Cassandra backed away, clearly startled, before she turned to Axel.

"Are you just going to let her talk to me that way?" she asked. Axel, still shocked by Larxene's outburst, gave a shrug. Cassandra angrily gripped her hands, digging her french tips into her palms. Larxene placed a hand on Axel's chin, turning his face towards hers, before pulling him into a kiss. Axel's arms wrapped around her waist and pulled her closer into him. Cassandra screamed in anger before stomping away.

"I love you, Axel," Larxene said after she pulled away from the kiss.

"I love you too, Larxene," he said, smiling before capturing her mouth in another kiss.

"So you'll come back?" she asked as they broke away from the second kiss.

"Of course," he answered, grinning broadly.


"I'm sorry we had a misunderstanding, Axel," said Xemnas, shaking his hand. "I'm glad you are again part of our company."

"And I'm glad to back, sir," said Axel, flashing a smile.

"Still," said Xemnas, sitting back, "I think someone needs to be fired..."

Axel looked over at Larxene, then grinned.

"Well..."


Marluxia raised his eyebrow before chuckling.

"So Xemnas fired Vexen?"

"Yep," said Larxene, taking a sip of her cocoa. "And Axel got his job back."

"So all's well with you, huh?" Marluxia asked. Larxene giggled.

"I guess you could say that."

"Well, for your sake," said Marluxia "I think I can make peace with Axel."

"Thanks," said Larxene, giving him a hug. "You're such a great friend."

"The best," he said with a smile.


"Well at least I won't have Marluxia hunting me down any time soon," said Axel, as he and Larxene sat on his bed, cuddled together.

"Yeah," said Larxene with a giggle. "Why don't you come over for dinner sometime? Then you guys could get to know each other better."

"You know I can't say no to you," said Axel, gently kissing her neck. She smiled and ran her hand through his wild hair.

"Hmm, I know," she said. Axel wrapped an arm around her waist as he turned her and rested her on the bed. He pulled her into a passionate kiss, which she eagerly returned.

"You know I love you," she said, breaking away.

"Yes," he said, smiling down at her.

"But," she sighed "I have to go. We have work tomorrow, and I can't afford to be a zombie."

Axel gave a sad puppy face as she got up and walked to the door.

"No kiss goodbye?" she asked. He gave that jackal-like grin and walked over to her, snaking his arms around her and pulling her back to the bed.

"In the morning," he responded in a husky whisper, grinning as she pulled him into another passionate kiss.

Boy meets girl
You were my dream,my world
But i was blind
You cheated on me from behind
So on my own
I feel so all alone
Though I know it's true
I'm still in love with you

I need a miracle
I wanna be your girl
Give me a chance to see
That you are made for me
I need a miracle
Please let me be your girl
One day you'll see it can happen to me
I need a miracle
I wanna be your girl
Give me a chance to see
That you are made for me
I need a miracle
Please let me be your girl
One day you'll see it can happen to me
It can happen to me

Day and night
I'm always by your side
Cause I know for sure
My love is real, my feelings pure
So take a try
No need to ask me why
Cause I know it's true
I'm still in love with you

I need a miracle...
I wanna be your girl
Give me a chance to see
That you are made for me
I need a miracle
Please let me be your girl
One day you'll see it can happen to me
I need a miracle
I wanna be your girl
Give me a chance to see
That you are made for me
I need a miracle
Please let me be your girl
One day you'll see it can happen to me
It can happen to me
