After that I basically snapped. I was NOT in the mood for perverted red heads today. Or any other day, for that matter. I through my bags in the room, slammed the door in his face, and stomped down the stairs in a temper. "Aw, come on cutie! Don't get mad! You know you looove me!" Axel sang teasingly down at my retreating blond head. I twitched in annoyance. Axel was about to learn a very important lesson… Don't mess with a short tempered blondie who was a VERY bad day.

Putting on my coldest glare, I whipped around to face Axel. If looks could kill, Axel would have been dead instantly. "Look, I don't know what your problem is, but just go find someone else to pick on. Cause I really don't have time for jerks like you today." Trying to calm myself down, I found my hand was curled into a ball, practically begging to hit him. For once in my life, I think I might have listened to it if I would have had the chance.

I turned to walk away from him, but suddenly I was being held back, by two long skinny arms. Before I could try and get away, he pulled my back into his chest, holding me in a mock lovers hold. He leaned down and whispered seductively into my ear, "I would… but there's just something I like about short blondes…" He started to lick my ear, and that snapped me back into reality. "G-Get off me!" I screamed at him as I punched him in the face, and sprinted down the stairs, trying desperately to hide the blush painted on my face. What was wrong with me?

As I reached the last step, Aerith worried face popped into view. "Is everything all right, Roxas dear?" she asked worriedly. Those words made my heart squeeze a little, knowing that she cared for me, even if I had barely known her for a day. My voice cracked a little as I said, "Yeah… Thank you Aerith for letting me stay here and stuff…" She smiled and returned to the small white kitchen to continue making spaghetti for supper.

I looked around for Sora, and wasn't surprised when I found him asleep on the couch. I smiled at his silliness, and draped a fuzzy purple blanket on him, that I had found on the floor. He looked so cute when he slept, and with a perverted red head on the loose, Sorawould be eaten alive if I left him alone. So I decided to let him sleep and to protect him, at least until our uncle came home. With a huff, I plopped down in one of the soft red chairs.

Slowly, I closed my eyes and let my mind wander off… This somehow led my thoughts to that creep Axel. What was that guy's problem any ways? I haven't done anything to him. Hell, I hardly even know that weirdo… Suddenly images of Axel holding me flashed into my mind, and I blushed wildly again, hiding my face into the side of the chair. With a yawn, I tried to think of other things, like bunnies… and clouds… and Axel…. Damn I did it again…

I must have fell asleep, because the next thing I knew was Sora was shaking me awake roughly. "Roxas! Roxas, wake up! It's time to eat, and Uncle Cloud is here!" Sora said happily. You could tell he was excited to meet him, Cloud had been our father's brother. I shook myself awake and jumped out of the seat. "Well, what are we waiting for?" I couldn't keep the excitement out of my voice as I started towards the kitchen. Sora skipped into the kitchen before me, and I took a deep breath before walking into the kitchen.

I walked into the kitchen to see Aerith, Sora, Axel, and a blond haired man sitting at the dinner table, with a large bowl of spaghetti sitting in the middle of the table. When I looked at the blond haired man, it felt like I was looking at myself older. I guessed that he must have been my uncle Cloud, and my guess was confirmed when he opened his mouth and started to talk. "Hello, Roxas. I'm Cloud, your uncle… Take a seat where ever you want, so that we can began eating." He gestured towards two empty seats, one by Sora and the other by the red headed demon. I smirked when I noticed a dark bruise on his cheek, in the same spot I had hit him earlier.

I quickly sat down by Sora, directly across from Axel, but hey, at least it's better than actually sitting by him. Axel must have saw me glance at him, because he put his trademark smirk on and leaned towards me. "Nice of you to join us, blonde." He teased, obliviously trying to annoy me. With a huff, I ignored him and turned towards Cloud and Aerith. "So how well, did you guys know my parents?" I asked curiously, hoping for a good story about my mom or dad's past.

Cloud smiled at me as Aerith toppled all our plates with spaghetti. "Well, we used to visit them a lot when you two were younger, but when your dad passed away… We couldn't get a hold of Tifa anymore. We tried calling, going to your old house, everything, but we couldn't find a trace of you guys. That is, until we heard of the accident… We are so sorry to hear about Tifa and Olette..." he trailed off, obviously trying hard not to upset Soraor me. I gave him a small smile and started to eat my spaghetti.

Supper was… interesting, to say the least. Between ignoring a flirty red head, and trying to start a normal conversation with my uncle, I felt a headache coming on. The spaghetti was good at least! I never knew that Aerith was such a good cook. My mom always burned everything she made, so most of the time we just ate out. I smiled thinking about those good memories. I spaced out until Cloud coughed to get my attention.

"So, Roxas, I'm guessing you're wondering why Axel is living here, even though he is obviously not our son." Cloud asked me. I nodded, suddenly interested. Any story about the pervert was enough catch my attention. Wait… What?! What am I thinking? I hate him, I hate him, I hate him, I like… Damn, not again…

Cloud smiled and continued, "Well, we used to good friends with Axel's parents, when he was younger. In fact he used to come over all the time with his parents to visit us. That all changed a few years ago…" he spaced off, probably thinking about his past. Aerith picked up where he finished, "A few years ago, they started to come over less and less. One day, they stopped coming over completely. We began to worry, but every day we went to their house, they were always gone. So we just stopped trying, thinking that they must have moved to another town. Until we saw Axel, father's car pull into their driveway, in the middle of the night."She stopped talking and took a deep breath.

Cloud snapped out of his trance and began to talk again. "Axel jumped out of the car and started to run, but before he could get anywhere, his father dragged him into the house. Aerith saw all of that, and as she ran to tell me, that's when the screaming began. We called the police as soon as we heard, and ran over to see what was happening. Axel's father fled when we reached the house, and even when I tried to stop him, he got away from me. Aerith ran inside and found Axel unconscious from too much blood loss. He was rushed into the emergency room immediately, and almost didn't make it through treatment. His injuries were caused from a butchers knife, the same one I saw his father holding as he ran from the house." Cloud broke off, as he shoveled some more food into his mouth.

Axel smiled and shrugged as if it was nothing at all. "Yeah, and I've still got the scars to prove it! Wanna see?" With a wide smirk, he began to pull up his shirt slowly, looking a lot like a gay stripper. I wonder what he would look like in a dress… Wait, What?! What am I thinking? Bad Roxas! Bad! Bad! Bad!

I quickly covered Sora's innocent eyes and glared at Axel. "No, we do NOT want to see your scars, so freaking pull your shirt back down." I snapped at him. He did as I said, but not before saying something annoying of course, "Aww, you know you wanna see my hot body though, babe!" I smiled a sickenly sweet smile, before kicking him as hard as I could in the shin. I smirked even wider when he yelped and fell out of his chair. Ignoring his groaning, I turned back to Aerith and Cloud. "You were saying…?"

Aerith sobered and finished the story, "Axel's father was never found… He is still out there…Somewhere…" She trailed off, and looked out the window, staring at the rain pour down in the dark night. It gave me the chills thinking that dangerous man was on the loose somewhere. Suddenly I felt bad for Axel. Even though both my parents had died, at least I knew what a happy family was. Who knew how much Axels father had abused him. Axel acted like he didn't really care about it, but he was probably really scared deep down.

The rest of dinner was spent in silence, each of us wrapped in our own thoughts. I was curious about what had happened to Axels mother though… I guess I'll have to ask later. I stifled a yawn, and scrapped the remaining of my spaghetti in the trash, before setting the plate in the sink. I walked into the living room and absentmindedly watched some random show that Sora was watching on TV. A while later someone sat by me on the couch, but I was too tired to care about who it was. I leaned against the person, glad for the extra heat they were giving off. I didn't even notice the pair of green eyes that were staring at me, as I fell into a deep asleep, more comfortable than I think I've ever been in my life.

That is until I remembered that I had to go school tomorrow.
